Tom Sam Samantha explain that Yes you. Teach is just a college that she's at and you subbed in a couple of classes a couple of times she was so glad to see you and find out about your book. It started out as a Web. Comic is now so coming to life is a children's book ash in rainy is that correct Ashen Ramey. That's the book but you have so many projects right. Oh Yeah do everything from commercial associations for licensed properties. I'm teaching Ashram. He began as well base off my to real cats who who are named. Asha and Ramey all right named after Mike Guess Evil Dead. Okay you know yes. It's so as an with YEP. It spawned into a children's book now. Ah some people hear the name they assume right away. That's going to be kind of an adult theme snarky like Ironic Children's book okay. It's really I just didn't feel any need to change. My Cat's name's okay so yeah I had the idea for quite a bit and you know I started out doing cartoon series when I was a kid one of my biggest influences to be an artist was always Charles Schulz from peanuts in the big one is undeniable was bill watterson of Calvin hops all right and when I was kid all I wanNA do was was be one of those guys you know. Wandering the you know the weekly Strip and the Sunday car comic published put out there so I started out with a cartoon called which just kinda rogatory now by what's called the fleabag about my Dalmatian dog at the time and you know I was ten years old when I started that actually was able to get my local paper to actually run the comic. How old were you about ten or eleven years old. Were they paying you to or just like kids but that's an honor to run it really was it was is really cool. I you know my goal is to always trying. You know develop my sense of humor which you know when you're a kid is rough to do but you know com- books came the way okay and that trickled away to you know that area but there's always apartment that was Kinda like wish I'd kind of like come up with the right idea for a comic strip yeah so one we'll see I I just wanted to correct you was started out as actually as a kids book first and then the web comic came as a means of creating contents you know so when I created the book I'm like the hardest part two is well promotion. You know no one's ever heard of that before yeah so here. I'm rocking this thing out. I thought you need to put something on every day. Whether it'd be like you know facts about animals cats with the cartoon. Avatar is part of the stretcher. you know just the flare just raise awareness of the anything just putting their face. There'll stations you. Oh cute little drawings on anything I could write and the idea the Webcam came around because I used to do a little bit stand up comedy back in the day so cool yeah to let that take that go away to for a while because you know there's too many interests in too many passion so you have to kind of balance things out but never really had an outlet for any my you know sense of humor. My jokes my little. We'll commentary so to speak and it started out as well. Let's do it. Let's turn these guys into web. Comics I start out some simple jokes that Kylie tying into the the kids book and then it took on a life of its own and now it's it's. It's it's an everyday thing I have a notebook just stacked of ideas and stories control so so how many stories sir come from your cats and how many are you just fabricating straight up right now probably about seventy five percent are all real life. One came to this morning. I pitched a pitch my wife out the door. Oh she was already laughing and she's hard to make laugh okay. She doesn't find me funny either. You're supposed to be the best. Jamie is on the radio. Do you listen. She got to listen to that at home listening that over there so what was the what came across this morning well. I caught my youngest cat Ramey drinking from the toilet okay and nothing new and my oldest cat ash the bigger and heavier one. He has an obsession with with eating grass so I mean he scrambles to the door of the moment to try and get outside just eat grass and I bought them wheat grass here and there but he's it's just a digestive just if they eat it sure yeah. They throw up sure happy and they do it again. This is part of their life. Sorority girls yeah so the the the comics. GonNa go. I hate to spoil. Certainly the setup is let me give you a background but the cats and we haven't read yet. It's about two cats live with an alien. Oh Martin I've just getting better by the MIDI. It's so it's so this started out as a one off joke about that area fifty one raid that was going on yeah yeah so I had a one idea joke about the cats because they wanted to be goofy so house. If you WANNA take a look at the we're basically you know the one cats get nervous. I I won't want to read area fifty one and the repercussions and the punch line you see there was nowhere. Rameez now gathered no reason no a little no logic. Just there sure are party of your party in the USA is that what is shirts property of the US pretty property of you imply that he's already went. Jerry fifty one came back with an alien. Okay this solve the biggest problem I had in the storyline because I signed up a couple more jokes within run with the story line a little bit figured they would you know participate learn about cats. Lebed's and go back to his home planet. That'd be the end of his arc. One thing that was missing though was the owner element of the storyline Garfield has John are buckle. Simon's cat have Simon so it's kind of a it's been done. A million times in the last thing I wanted to be was another Jon arbuckle. I didn't WanNa make a cartoon. Qatar myself shirt so I was struggling for a while writing in human interaction or ownership as an off yeah off Karen off-camera character I realized eventually that was going to run to problems so the more I wrote with this alien the more I come the more I found love with him. His ignorance about raising cats that I realized he's my Jon Arbuckle so I wrote him into staying on Earth and decided to get himself a job working in corporate America just so we can support two cats oh that manipulate and abuse him and misinformed about their role in this society is possible. That's all right that self after that so the joke that came from the this morning was 'cause it's going to be ash gleefully running to pile grass falling face first and just devouring it and then. Martin pulled in a cup of coffee looking at the window going my what he's eating grass. What's wrong with them then behind him. Raimi's guys had deepening toilets saying gross yeah. There's definitely a lot of real life. moments right for me. Yeah Okay I just. I thought it was funny. I love it. I love it. I love it. Ash Ash Ramy 'cause I got cats have a cat guy yeah. You got cat guys mass more of a duck guy well. I have a cat. He's like a dog. Are they. Yeah ash and Ramey are they boys or girls. They're both boys voice. Okay Man Ray music a dog too. He plays fetch perfectly. Yeah anything I throw he brings it right back drops in my lab and she watches television. I it's it's I find boycotts are are better tempered generally than than the lady cats the lady cats all crazy. They're they're playing casper. They'RE GONNA THEY'RE GONNA scratch up as soon as look at you. My lady cats pretty laid back until about three thirty. Am and that's when she finds the CATNIP in court sparse running mad around the house so you're you're you're beginning super early ten years old published for the first time time and then so yeah so and then and then from there did you did you. How'd you hone your craft. Did you was their schooling involved was years and years of working. So where'd you go from there. can only go so far at the high school. I always felt most of mine are was offered to me. I started going to mccomb college sharing Michigan and and again I start out in the fine arts program at they offered there and you know the time I was only going so far with that as far as you know learning figure learning earning charcoal drawing and whatnot and I was getting kind of frustrated with it because I didn't really know where else to go economically with him. I was getting to the point where I felt guy peaked Gary Eagle a lot of artists carry and then you know pay for later so I dropped out for a while okay. I decided look at other things picked up Qatar plane music when stand up com- as I mentioned earlier and that was kind of flop but trying anything in the entertainment strict get into and then eventually came came down to like well is approaching the my late twenties and I'll still waiting tables and bartending and whatnot which you know is fine but it's taxing the body. Just decide okay well. Let's do the one thing everyone artsy. People told me about was devoid graphic design. That's the sell out world. Now's like but they they they get jobs. Let's check it out so I went down to the south the campus and check out the graphic design program they had there and then I realized some of those artsy. Your friends of mine didn't know anything they're talking about. It was everything I ever wanted Wanda. Don't be talking to guys like Matt Bush. One of the biggest star wars are in the world teaching so cool. Hey He's a great guy became good friends. I learned from him. You know how to be oppression illustrator illustrator and just when I thought peak doesn't realize scratch the surface of growth that was available to ours and that's something I try and teach people now is that they'll never peak. If you keep trying to learn new things and always scratching the surface you know looking at your peers funny they do and figuring out how they do it so your graphic artists job is able to allow you to the creative thing with Ash Ramy Amy Yeah Yeah thankfully I took a job that doesn't pay well but the hours are phenomenal because it's I work from home. They only know how long I really you work for them. So I fell in my time every single men. I possibly can work in my own projects. Whether it be my board games card games I creates you know video production. Shen anything I can think of my comic book series you know every minute I have available. I'm putting into my work so I mean we like it because it's cats animals but I'm intrigued board game so you're you've created some board games your create a card game initially called grim request at bought it. Ah Pretty Cool Kylie my answer people appreciate magic the gathering her cousin dungeons and dragons but maybe they're intimidated by those games because of the complex flex learning curve expensive deck building all that great again that anyone can learn how play in five ten minutes regards the experience of background and you know play game in that fancy realms theme and then walk away. They're down without having to find special clubs. Hang out walking away not the cloak of Shame Avenue Avenue basically say well my lifestyle's now magic and I have to like five twenty excited die. I need to use yeah so that was the first one that I'm working on. New One now called one of us and that's more of a traditional board game the elevator pitch. I just tell people it's a clue means the excess family friendly. Oh that sounds so let I know no one's GonNa believe that until I actually show them the game mccown okay because it's family friendly. I'm like yeah you know. Ashwini may make a cameo in that game. We'll see so they're talking about clue clue talking about clue. They're talking about revamping it and getting rid of one of the rooms changing rooms drew the conservancy. They're putting it up to the fans a a fans fence. They're leaving it out to fans to find out what room they're going to get rid of in replaced with something else. So what are they. GonNa get rid of. And what are they. GonNa put in probably the library since people are. I'm reading anymore. I said put in a hot chicks room. That's Kinda. Oh my I my my vote. They won't allow that you said that about the microwave when it came out that all the time whether rooms is a safe space ever speaking on you and the Game uh-huh Foam Wall. Oh wait a minute. That's what we're in. We in one of the pieces is now a straightjacket podcast. You're not just go to about the other players you know. Well there you go. It's foam. There's Fomento podcast studio right off. See aren't so so the Board Games was that sounds great and then the comic book series is that what's what is wrote a book called the Anathema and it was a little more dark themes space story about 'em mm-hmm this galaxy that had been torn apart during the war by this evil demigods named alum that was resurrecting defeated which I found out later on was was premature saints game of Thrones Spina put on the shelf for now okay and he was going through like plants and like wiping out plants and then resurrecting the dead aliens and people as Zombie Army like most more like servitude zombies like the old school bell go see White Zombie stories but yeah you know it was like aliens monsters right. It was still like game of thrones with the whole lake doc giants like a little superman add. It really was last season yeah it was. I was really bummed watching that. I'm looking Dan. You gotta be kidding me. I saw the books I just slammed my. I have a thousand pages of the script I wrote that are still sitting on almost nine years later. It's still good it does go in its own direction so I'm I'm. I'm confident if I look and go all right just pull away from some of the zombies of a little bit which frankly I think we're also goes on anyway. you know I can get back into the series and I did successfully navigate away but I think just everything else has got in the way and I realized as much as I enjoyed doing the series. I really proud of like what I wrote. Making a comic book on your own is it's tough. I mean especially especially the graphic comic that's that are out there right now right not just writing a drawing on my own writer inker colorist everything. I'm on publisher. I saw my own stuff. I'm a one man army. One man show in the last thing I'm the thing on the worse at is doing when I'm doing right now promoting going out talking to people I wanNA work and I want to draw and paint and make things and then I want just magically adjective for them to find their way into people's hands that stuff you know so that was going to be my question is is so the comic book how do you how do you get that published is because it in in recent times like self publishing has become so much easier and so much more available before you had you couldn't there. There wasn't such a self publishing well. It was cranking out copies at the library have black and white and stable together but now you can actually genuinely self published so how do you how do you find a balance of trying to find lied someone to publish you or to self publish and route guide typically have only done self publishing. Okay kind of just because of the change in the landscape. You know back in the day I I I. I kind of miss about the whole the chase of the old days for people is Kinda thin the herd. It really kept some people who really we had the hard drive to keep going no matter what but now we have this place where basically the littlest bill drive can turn to success in some cases you know and I find that you know it's it's good and it's also bad so it's created a kind of what I feel like explosion of oversaturated market of independent work material so so it's really hard for people to find the really good stuff versus the stuff that just kind of floated through right just because it you know it's hot right now and I'm hoping that always just make sure I stand outside of Mediocre Koker versus. I feel like the kind of person I have. Is You know sacrifices everything so I I will sacrifice all my time and effort to make something good and and I feel like a competition now because of the landscape you can go on the Internet. Go who you know how much to print a book how much comic insure you five thousand people like chasing down onto offer you the best deal yeah. Put Your Book Your Hand and you can sell and you make a living yeah so there's pros and cons that of course it's great because it does give an opportunity people who may not have been heard before four and connects people to but then it also attributes to an oversaturation of weaker work right over powering. Maybe some strong work so I'm I'm newer to the whole con- market and so we the conwy cy out was like my third one I went to and the artist or destroy it was just amazing just rows and rows and rows of people like you sitting there yeah with with you know their their souls out in front of 'em of just what they've worked on and poured themselves into and it's lay is like there's so much out there. It's it's how do people how do people find it just retort. How do people find things out of people get hooked you know. Oh and then what is what is success. What what is success when you when you have a comic book series or Children's book like this what success for you I mean selling ten copies thousand copies ten thousand in copies. What what is your level. What do you what do you need to be saying. That was a success well. That's a good question to pay for what I spent on this. That's so you know that's always the best feeling when I get out of the whole right. Sometimes I never do to me. Success is always finishing the goal period case. I'm getting that in your hand is number one thing for me to have an idea begin to execute it and complete it and see it my hands or even approach throw it to know that did the work and it's good it's here that is always going to be the best feeling hands down the second best feeling is getting it funded or you you know getting it printed and having an actual product and then the next best feeling that's probably the first time the first time person buys it always make that person you know pull massango photo with you're the first person in my book or something you know or wherever you want my illustrations anything yeah after that. It's just matter of what's next right right so you're lucky we're here in the metro. Detroit area and Metro Detroit is blessed with a lot of cons. There's a lot of the there's a there's. There's a number throughout the year. There's probably a good five six fair sized cons closer to fifty. Yeah faith a lot that you would in the state anyway. There's a lot I why do fewer now. Do we want to go into the convention market. How it's it's kind of getting saturated. I believe I believe leave yet so I mean you're grinding it out. How many how many weekends a year are you out at a com. 'cause he got one. Tomorrow's the Monroe Monroe Yemen there was a period where I do absolutely show that would have me and lately I've noticed because the over saturation it's becoming very difficult to make a living appearing at some especially when you have to pay for hotels and travel and things and whatnot so it's getting to the point now where I'm kind of doing fewer shows. I'm focusing on either large state shows or the best of the best local shows now honestly say it on the air that you know I think Monroe COMECON is one of those best of the bell the guy who runs it he he buses all year long. He's out there. He cares about the stuff he puts together a good show and he comes through and there's a lot of other shows out there. I feel like you know they're just trying to make the buck and then they they basically it's a cash Gabar. Another here like oh conventions doing really well all these people show up you know and so they put together a show show that you know they throw it together and people and people do come because there's always the curiosity factor and so then the the promoter thinks oh man. I've done an awesome job making the show. They'll be back next year but they don't realize that maybe only thirty percent of the came were really impressed. Seventy percent the game just check it out. There never coming back the next year it's GonNa really bomb and a disaster and they might be put into money into it and you see that kind of happened a lot and so probably having now those we used to have one show a year and it was special you you know that was the thing that people wait all year for was comic con. You'll save up their money. They're excited about the the the artists that are going to be there and now it's not special anymore. There's one every weekend yeah a Lotta Times late. I know myself included. It's all the same people there yeah especially especially. If you branch out to just like the Midwest gone you know 'cause Driving Distance Cleveland Toledo places in Illinois Indiana are all you know and then in the west side of the State and Grand Rapids Lansing Ann Arbor and it's it's a cross there. There probably is something every weekend driveable within here if your favorite people are going to be there convention this weekend Portland Poorly. Let's Portland Rose City Comic Con.

Thanks so much for hanging out about your stuff. WE'RE GONNA abuse you a little bit before you go sure. Sam loves this because we're not abusing her enormously. Sam is the of all jokes we play a little game that we like to call factor fiction factor fiction. You decide all right Tom. I have three headlines headlines ripped from the news too. You're you're absolutely true. One is completely false written by me earlier while sitting here eating sticky beef. That is a true statement eh food without me. Why didn't you tell me to come earlier. Sam We're going to have food. You should probably get here early so in my cat just buzzy food so yeah so three headlights and so you got to figure out which one is the the the real okay all right the real which which one is the false. One two are true to archer torture. One one is false. Here we go here are three headlines. Women Women Sleep better next dogs than humans. That's true headline number. Two crunchy found missing forty six year old turtle reignited in Rochester and number three Missouri woman finds cat trap in local haunted house so there you go three headlines read them again. That's second one again. All right women sleep better next two dogs and he has a number one number two crunchy found missing forty forty six year old turtle is reunited in Rochester and then last one is Missouri woman finds cat trapped and local haunted house. It's crunchy the name of the turtle right okay yeah see I feel I need to know more about crunchy Rochester New York Rochester Michigan how long he's forty something years old. He's six. How how long you've been missing is hurt. Alert Turtle Headline Says Turtle do right. I am posited that the dog sitting next to women is true okay but I think that the crunchy the tough because I feel like October. The Halloween may just be fabricated close October. It's it's yeah go to Ash Room. Read the Comics Pumpkin spice me last the whole reason alien stays. It's okay. I'm GONNA say the The crunchies true as well crunchies the false house the song once. She was just too specific that is i. I think I gave him six days the thing of a nature trail and he would never come up with crazy. I am not that created hurdle turtle enough enough for you turtle turtle so yeah crunchy that was here in Rochester Michigan. turtle was found reunited with with its owner. It wasn't that long file this under. I'm not crying. You're crying. The whole forty six year old turtle was missing Rochester for days and miraculously has been reunited with its owner according to local reports crunchy a forty six year old river cooter turtle was found Saturday by Kayaker in a pod and Howlett Howlett Park and reunited with his owner Joanne Wiesner. Well I have way more questions. kayaker finds a random turtle in the wild sales. It looks like you probably didn't have a collar. I vote no handsome like pink color on. Shell and had some kids name out. There named I'm Joanne crunchy crunchy had been missing six hundred golfing just like coming to close to a turtle and out of nowhere. A ranger comes flying like wildlife alone. I'm like where did you come from and I wasn't going to do anything. Just go look at turtle crush. He was just making his way around Rochester. He hit I is. He hit connors. Then he got over to main street then he got over to the tavern and ended up in the river and that's where the kayaker found him. No kid grabs chesser so you know you're in Troy but you're right next. It's all yes so it's it's she usually lets the turtle out to lay eggs and they're not fertile but she lazy eggs and then got her pen. Ana So while the on a wild break a turtle over the edge and yes that women on women's sleep better next two dogs then then humans that was the other true story. I believe that's true for me too. I think it's true for me to come up with a dog women. If you want to catch betters easy to trade your partner you're in for a dog my sound extreme but a new study published in the Journal of something or other found that women's quality of shut eye improves when she sleeps in her bed next to a canine rather than her human partner so yeah.

While he would've nervous due to number four red light comes on get nervous everest really nervous ready for this moment i guess tell through your dog. Reading lost his swag wars film type of way. Let's get it started with big news. Big news in houston or does shawn watson has requested to be traded texas. According to reports this follows last night's news that houston higher ravens assistant david colleague to be their next head coach by all accounts. Watson has been serious with texas for a while after not being consulted about their gm higher watson signed a four year one hundred fifty six million dollar extension of september that includes a no trade so so the texas honor watson's trade demand. They have the death because they got two big dogs in my heart hearts. I'm thinking they should non at you can't force to love you in a relationship or in a football field on t you can't force someone to love you marcellus and trust me. I've tri c. Single a big dog so you have no choice. But you can't forced to shawn watson to love you. What's your alternative. You think about this marcellus. When when people get divorced what are they cite. They cite irreconcilable differences for the houston. Texans are these differences able to be reconciled and it appears not. Why does it appear not because shawn watson. He said he wanted a say in the higher. That went wrong next thing. You know he gets an apology from the man in charge in cow. Mcnair okay you get your apology. We hear the rumblings of he wants a black head coach. Never heard that from the shawn's mouth they hire black head coach. Okay gotcha still wants out. Not only still wants out but shortly after hiring the black head. Coach david colley. That's what he officially request a trade for the report so the differences appear to be irreconcilable as a result. Was your move texans. Just going to try to hold them hostage against his will now. Hugo pifer us. You're gonna love me to sean you. You see what i bought. You must not. The texans should honor to shawn watson trade demand particularly because they have no other alternative look to they shouldn't honored deshaun watson's trade demand. I am going to listen and talk for my heart of hearts. You did but to ignored it being real. They don't have to trade him like let's just start in the conversation of value and leverage because he's so valuable to this franchise but he's also valuable if he's out there on the trade market we understand that correct. So let's talk about the fact that the houston texas. Hold all the cards all the cars. If you don't understand what that means in this dynamic is this the shawn watson with his no trade clause only can say yes or no to where they want to trade him. But there's a scenario we don't wanna trade you so you're not gonna say yes another because no one is saying we're trading you. You are staying here now. The charlotte watson's like i'm not gonna play for you guys. They're like okay. That's fine but who need forty million dollars more. This year the texans franchise organization cal. Mcnair or you this shawn watson. Oh you don't wanna play okay. That's fine we know. We could go through. Grievances hasn't been chance penalties five etc. Oh you can say i'm hurt. I'm hurt my back my neck my back remember. We've been there before those injuries. All my lower back where we don't see anything on. Mr okay. and i know this fact former players. Go through this in terms of surveillance. You ever seen the surveillance on workers comp case say man. I'm out got this issue and even dude an unmarked sedan every day in front of my house. The they do savannah's if you want to play these games but here's the release of the part where it's real. It's really sad to see that they're in this place. Just because the shaw watson doesn't feel good about the process and to houston texas for a future you show wash who signs on and septembre. That's four months ago. You sign on and not only. Do you sign on but shoo are accusing them of lying of telling you you're going to be a part of a process that you weren't accusations of lies. Tell me if the shawn watson is telling the truth or a lie when he comes out in september what bill o'brien as his coach and as his gm and no dr. dre hopkins says quote. It's just an amazing moment for me. Tears coming down his face to be able to extend my career in a location in a place in the home. I would say that my family loves it. I love another here I want to continue to dive into the community and most of just continue to bill. My legacy just built our legacy. We're our watcher pronouns. Bro a ho. Do something that we've never done before. Last time i checked out. Marcel sounds like a lot of me right. Now it's hard to do any of that if you quit during the process if you quit at the first sign of adversity. God don't do this to ten win. This finally he comes out there and has his best year but the team doesn't and now. He wants to crack marcel. First and foremost. If somebody me one hundred fifty million dollars i promise you i'll be boohooing comey hundred fifty million dollars. He goes but tears coming down. He's going to be boohooing. can understand. Assan watson's overwhelming emotions at that moment. And you know what emotions do off been there. They make you say some things. You don't know dr assign owned and cry about some earned or you lying in this moment when you heard it. You ain't gotta let me true. Let me say this up. Started to figure out the issue at hand all this again. A previous relationship a manual. You told me this. You told me that manual. You told me this. How dare you now come and say this. Said i didn't lie to you. That was my truth in the moment. Cha the watson didn't lie to the tech since he didn't lie. The texans fans a lot of you can enlighten me. That was his truth in the moment. The moment has changed. The moment is passed marcellus. You can't put a price tag on happiness. I'm saying that now. I'm going to say this again later in the show. I'm which this shawn watson is like look man. I don't want to waste my best years here. Area in foster. Did andre johnson dean. Jj watt. did i seen players greater than i seem players greater than i suffer more than i. Why would i walked down the path that dated you told me marcellus for the world to see a couple of days ago. Full learns from his own mistakes. A wise man learn from this mistake. Yeah shawn watson. Line and from no mistakes of andre johnson. Big bro running for another. Thanks for big bro. J. j. watt nine administation area foster. And he's like. I'm not going to be a fool. I'm just trying to be a wise man. The texans honored at because there's a way where it can be a win winston. No i'm sorry one. Why sign if you want to sit here and now and change with the moment like our show. Also they paid you. They pay her maggi integrity. Pays you to not have a proper. I'll keep it one and if the shot talk to me. When i see him again okay came. This ain't had. Could we talk it right now. Big dog and i got love for this dude in terms of his game. Even more love for the character percents. No question boy. Is that taking a hit right now if you really are looking at this situation and in looking at it objectively being real big dog you said he told the truth in that moment sir you know what i would push back like all the women in your life who have heard you say the truth just those moments and it's a fleeing moment. Here's the thing. Okay you told the truth of september but right now brand new. Somebody were pushed back on. You say you know what this doesn't add up to that so you act. Brand new to shawn watson that september was crying love outback steakhouse prestige tick ever now. I'm only got a new gucci bag on cats if it ain't like this job not blunt forced you to sign onto a bad situation. And last time. I checked this is the problem. He doesn't know his value in the organization. I think he's overextended himself. Overplaying his hand. I'm give you some numbers. Here's a real twenty nine and twenty seven including playoffs. I've told you. The names of the guys. Four quarterbacks brian hoyer ryan fitzpatrick brock. Osweiler mass shop have this exact. Same record the. Sean has to playoff appearances. They had to playoff appearances so evenly mess. Symmetrical as my son is talking about right now learning in his class in kindergarten. Here's some quarterbacks better. Winning percentages as a starter. Dan this shawn watson. Mr bisky come on big dog. You can't be there teddy. Bridgewater ryan tannehill jared goff trade block. Tyrod taylor longs nick foles old big dog. You can't be an ex Worship point your flex go you wanna get. This is starting to hurt you thousand taper. That's my point. This shot wasn't his. He's something he's not carrying out. Can i get this out. I'm gonna tell you why. Because i don't care about your individual performance at the most important position i care about the translation of their performance. And last time. I checked that's in wins and losses brother watson seven in nineteen against playoff teams. You wanna talk about guys who have a better win. Percentage against playoff teams blake bortles case keenum. Marcus mariota dog. This is how it looks when you on the other side of the table. Someone needs to tell him they got your rights to two thousand and twenty eight they could franchise you once twice three times where you going unless day wants you to go somewhere sale madam you now. I'm not. I'm loved it but i'm calm down. Because the sudas to tighten. I'm a break. Don't talk to me about the shawn watson translation of his performances if he has a bad translator and the translators the defense and all the other pieces sell. I've told you this before. Boy goes to nigeria every summer. Big dog and has with about forty doctors and nurses from america. Doing medical mission work. Don't tell me about how much money spit enough. Well we breath every now and then. We'll we'll go there on a sunday. We'll hit church on a sunday but the problem is where with forty american. So we gotta get the sermon translated. Because they're speaking in the native nigerian. Talk so the nigerian pastor. He'll get up there go speaking ibo and then all of a sudden the translate. It'll be like jesus loves you say. Don't matter to his hard round. The shawn watson you lead the nfl in in passing yards a seventy percent completion percentage. You leave the nfl in yards per attempt. But it's translated and marcellus all you hearing this. How they went for twelve. I'm like that's not what he'd sabe shawn watson went. He didn't go yes. The team went and twelve but tucson way. Don't blame shawn watson for a bad translation. The defense as they bad translation lack of a head coach translation. No number one receiver bad translation no management bad translation. But don't put that on big dog shawn watson now now okay auto if i give you that point in also gonna take points away from watson and turns a leadership because this is the first year of true versity. Maybe he didn't see it coming because he signed that deal. But i think he did come. He knew hopkins was gone. He knew that bill. O'brien was a bad jim. And he's still saying where's the pen and he signed on to that. If four months later after a four twelve record wherever like puppy you up but cloudy your team. You want to depart the team. The shot you're type person when virtually hits you. You wanted to look at everyone else. I did my part so when we're doing well. Yeah it's on me but when we did back some y'all but leave dysfunctional texas organization. Where because guess what wherever you go. They have to sign off nam. Probably that's not going to be a good situation more dysfunction but if you're a guy who runs from this function are you ever going. Stay still wherever you go. There you say something to help. You can't say that shawn watson run from adversity. He runs through adversity. Remember his rookie year. Big dog he's benched for tom savage. If i'm not mistaken bench. Tiffany them starts on the bench. He wasn't. He starts on the bench. When was rookie year because of ado. Tom savage then he keynotes company comes in and starts and nineteen touchdowns eight picks but then he hears aco caliber season when tears. Acl battles back from that to come back the next year. Twenty six and nine. They go to the playoffs. He doesn't run away from adversity adversity in the physical. All through it. oh. I can't give you that hurt. You know getting every player ever any level. You'll have to go pro. You'll freshman year your rookie year. Chances are you may get played. You go that's happening right of passage as they call it. You know you gotta go through the fire. So i'm not going to give him the rookie year stuff. They made a mistake. He outplayed there. What about the aco. They say look. It's happened all. I know is you gave me yards. And we know that sometimes that's what about completion percentage. But this is empty car conversation empty calories back our conversation not just say because i believe that his character. I believe that he could be the centerpoint. The epicenter of something good but now the one year is bad on his watch when he did this part he wants to lead the situation the organization. He's doing himself. No favors in terms of human capital. Nick about this auto wasser right now is flexing. And it's funny that the trade demands come out today you know. They hired a coach and then they know that this ain't doing it for the child watson so now leverage and value. We're going to leak out. They leaked out this the texans we go leak out so everybody knows. The sean is available quietly behind closed doors. He ain't going nowhere unless they give up the farm for him so now we want to see where value is because of kiss ugly. His value goes down but in terms of leverage to sean has no leverage. He can't say. I'm going to sit out till two thousand and twenty eight. He can't say. I don't want the forty million dollars a year and he can't sit there and say i'll pay defies. Here's the fines to shawn watson. Ninety six thousand dollars for missing mini camp. Okay you're gonna miss that. Go ahead that ain't that much. I guess fifty thousand per day for missing training go ahead on six hundred twenty thousand for each preseason game missed and they collect twenty one point six million if he were tired all the incentives are in the texas favor flex a wise philosopher. Wisest men who have said this was this. I'm just here so i don't get fined about to do a show. I'm just here. So i don't get fine like that. Wise philosopher marshawn lynch said so again. Was that mean what that means. Ramsey never got fined. Earl thomas never got leave. He had fourteen million dollars lawsuits. But if you are wise and if you are tactful way to play the situation so what does on you. Just don't throw a ball over your receivers head every single play thousand and twenty eight. No but you could talk first thirty days. I can't what let's get rid of you because y disrupt the tape picked up. Let me go here. Let me go here. I'm i'm i'm making another layer. I'm gonna take you to another layer at a cake. You like cake so hopefully you like this layer now look. So if coaches are justice cockiest players. You know like just as cocky as players. You know like. I know that if you're a coach rolling into the texans organization you know what you're thinking the sun. I don't even need you. Think about nick caserio. You went seven and nine with cam. Newton is your starter for fifteen gains if you can go seven and nine we cam newton you disarm like you only four and twelve brownie. Go ahead get outta here. You david coli new head coach just coming from the ravens you like look. We went to the playoffs. Two years straight jackson jackson k. Really throw light that contrary to what y'all if we can go three times. Lamar i'll need you to sean. So we're acting here. Is if the texans just desperately out of so much humility and desire. Need to sean cocky. Gm's and cocky head coaches. They looking around like i need. You know boom. And that's why sean need to be shook right now. Because they have options where he doesn't his options are either to sit out. Potentially you go all the way as they say. You really wanna die on this deal. You wanna go to this extent all the way to two thousand twenty eight. No you're not so now you're trying to do something else versus the texans. We don't have to trade you. Oh everybody's lose money with the wasser he's going to look bad in the teams don't lose. Nfl teams have a dual scoreboard. Wins and losses. Let's try and get that lombardi trophy also. Even in losing. They print money. They make money even in losing the new york knicks. Let's talk about new york. Knicks was the most profitable organization and new york knicks thing. Smell nothing close to a championship it happens. Nfl as well doll. These billionaires look at the nfl as a hobby why they don't make their money think about it. They don't make their money in the nfl. This is the side stash and the shot watson. His message was so what's happy. They are not going to take that lightly. Let me say someone will take you somewhere. Know if you want to go. I wonder who said we're to shawn watson. Do you want to die on this hill. I think the shawn watson is weighing two options. I can either die on this hill or die in this valley but it looks like either way. I'm going to die. If there was truly a captain. America in real life he would be named. Jj watt an american hero nfl legend. Twenty twenty six seventeen hundred sixteen six. Jj watt the leader of all men. The leader of all leaders. He hasn't been able to write this. Texas so texans organization. Jj watt a first ballot hall of famer hasn't been able to write this texans organization so the shawn watson who spent his four years looking at. Jj watt everything. J. watt is and stands for and. Jj watt can get it done. The sean is looking like who am i. Who am i to think. I can get it done. So the either diana's valley or i might just survive on. This hill is sound for weather. Sounds in literature in reality. It doesn't make any sense because look you are a new. Jj watt career. When you were there. You are new. Andre johnson career. Before you got there and you still signed along for that ride that journey that may have peaks and valleys may have those situations where it's averse but you're going to dip from it. You're gonna run from it. Oh guess anybody who is not in a in a position where they think they can win a championship. abort mission. That's what's problematic about this. Let me say my last point. I can stress. Mcdonald's jets you know why show if our leaders phyllis like this and does shawn watson to me as a leader if the show washington is going to fail the nfl players. Who look he's not feeling. Okay okay let me tell you heard my heart. I don't know high careers gonna turn al know if he goes somewhere else and balls out. I don't know if he goes somewhere else and it's the same situation just different uniform. I don't know i don't really care. All i care about is when i saw him play and i saw the leadership abilities. He had possessed. I thought that was going to be able to translate to asmussen's through the team. I thought he was going to build something up but instead he wants to go somewhere else to do it. that's fine. that's the way he wants to go out. But the lack of communication don't horrible miscommunication. The lies that have been told while they're apologizing to him he's tweeting cryptic about it to me man. This is not the way you go about business especially when owner sitting there loving you to the tune of one hundred sixty million doubts coming up at the top of the hour.

Brady are a little over a week away. From facing off for the lombardi trophy. The homes lead batista super bowl. Two years in a row. Casey is only lost once the season when he was in the lineup on the other side tampa won four more games in the regular season with tom brady. And they're headed to the super bowl for the first time since. Two thousand and two so marcella debate goat debate but in a beta value. Who's more valuable to their team. Patrick mahomes at tom brady of course. Is tom brady. Let's keep the simple. Let's start here. Was team was worse before the quarterback. Got there. which you don't do this you'll even hang okay. I answered tampa bay. Tom brady okay so you start from a worst. Starting point who had the greater impact who had a greater difference who's more valuable to their situation. Tom brady and tampa bay now. We got the losses. And that's an easy argument. I hope you wanna go down on your lap. Because they're now destroyed that well. Let's talk about this what you can't necessarily see the things that matter most which is confidence which is belief. Which is everything that tom brady's been able to do in terms of what this organization looked like before him and what they look like right. Now we're not even gonna talk about ticket sales in fan dumb and how people were clamoring to this team in jersey sales. Let's just talk about how the players are playing better. Not necessarily in numbers not talking about individual performances collectively playing better. That's what tom brady brings to the situation. Tom brady goes to a situation which is simple. They had a head coach. That was up and down in terms of success. Wacho tells me all other times. He had three winning seasons three non winning seasons. He goes to a situation where you look at them. They had good receivers but those receivers never been in the playoffs. Before mike evans chris godwin. He goes to a team that two of the last three years. The defense was right in the bottom. Three oh twenty nine at thirty first then. It got better. But then a lot better. Because tom brady made all these guys understand how play a game and more importantly to believe in themselves as they play the game. So it's kinda simple. I can take shots. Patrick mahomes but i'm waiting for the other side before i hear marceau's actually overcomplicated such a simple matter. I don't fault you you went to columbia. You're smart but sometimes your little too smart for yourself your own good. Let's go home patrick. Mahomes is more valuable because the chief successes continued upon. patrick mahomes. Is it absolutely not andy. Reid continue to bonn patrick. Mahomes success think about tom brady. Tom brady has had three. Consecutive games in the playoffs would they. Completion percentage below fifty six percent. That is terrible. Wanna know just how bad. it is. Look at the context of the other quarterbacks in the last three seasons to do so. Tom brady man. Yup boy trent dilfer and another man. joe flacco. Those are the three quarterbacks over the last thirty years with consecutive games completion percentage under fifty six percent. If tom brady's name was called him baker mayfield. We'd be saying tom. Brady's getting carried to the super bowl because his name. Is tom brady. We're talking about how he is galvanizing and carrying his team to the super bowl. We're leading our feelings. Get in the way of the facts. The last thing. Because i'll give you a number here chiefs offense number one in the nfl defense number sixteen in the nfl buck offense number seven in the nfl. Their defense number six in the nfl. So even if you want to get away from everything else besides the fact that the chiefs team is predicated upon their offensive success. The buccaneers team is predicated upon their collective success. That's really all you gotta get two big dog. Chiefs go was the offense go. Offense goes as mahomes go bucks. Is everybody go you ever been a kansas city. I have many a times played there. You played there obviously. No you have not played in the nfl. Seattle dow say. Shut up to the twelve man. But i don't know how many men they gotta case thirteen. Fourteen too damn loud old. Casey is the best place to play. Digress but there airline. And i hear this song this city and then you know. Everybody knows lyrics. We built this city own. And you talk about the three years before. Patrick mahomes got their touch. Did all this. No patrick mahomes landed on third base and thought he hit a triple. That's patrick mahomes. This do for you for bringing home but david this was already built. You'll go to one of the greatest head coaches in film history fifth most wizard. Nfl history that same head coach. Who has a tight end. Who is on one of the greatest five-year stretches in the history at that position and travis kelsey also to the greatest breadth. Yes i must say they. Nfl has ever seen you want to know why because in his five years he has more fifty yard. Touchdown didn't even randy moss tyreek hill. Who i'm talking about. Oh that's house landed on third base. Dogs let's talk about how they were winning. Before even got their twelve wins. Levin wins eleven. Wins ten wins four out of five years. They were in the playoffs then. Close like i told you yesterday. Andy rebuilt their foundation. And the only difference to only buck. You're seeing is the difference between alex smith who was a quarterback and patrick mahomes. Who's out of this world but brooke here round the basis. He started off therapists. Because andy was in the building doing the same thing he did in philadelphia replicate net and casey. Here's what we know. Big dog come on. The read had runners on third base year at the nobody get home. Nobody's talking point. Who more patrick mahomes. Because patrick mahomes finally got andy reid. What andy reid couldn't get by him. He he's more valuable to andy reid. Donovan mcnabb and smith but in this conversation there was another team. Let's talk about david. Make the playoffs in three seasons before. Tom tom brady got there in tampa bay matter of fact they have the most losses of any franchise. Nfl history utah. That's bad how about this. The most losses of any franchise in all major sports desk. Tom brady went to. He went to a place. Like you went to you. Saying he was in the hood right. You said you saw some some laws that didn't have grass right. You saw dirt and rocks and weeds. That's tom brady with patrick. Mahomes dog you in beverly hills talking about how nice it is. We get it and then you was boop out of whip that somebody else already have for you. It's a difference in the gap the disparity of improvement in tampa respect respect. Here's what i will also say. We can't act. As though every landmark is created equal meaning getting to the playoffs is not the same as winning a playoff game which is not the same as winning a super bowl. See the winning the ball you your family few do great family. Few shot charleston nazi party or though g expand those alioune. You can win the first round you can win the second okay but that third round is tripled money if you win that third round it actually trump's what occurs in that first and second round. Don't brag to me about what you did. In the first and second rounds a family feud all that matters is what you're doing that third round in that third round his way guests you to that big money round when you win that of twenty five thousand here. So i understand andy reid. He won the first round. Andy reid he won the second round. Even tom brady this year. He's one of the first round. He's won the second round room but now we talking about that triple money round now. Talking about a third round don't create all rounds equal sale. Because you know date. Not i just told you a franchise and a team to have the most losses of any franchise that played sports versus kc. That had the third best. Winning percentage in. Nfl over three years before won't even showed up patriots steelers kc and that's where he landed at like he has the most value over somebody that went to somewhere that was at the bottom literally at the bottom. There's a huge difference up from the bottom so trust me. You ain't gonna sit there and tell me somebody else well. I'm third generation columbia. Who had a harder. Climb over here and it's okay. We got to the same place but in a different way. Tom brady is doing this in year. One would no continuity. Let me give you the stay family since you got a free time. Obviously what family feud all the time. I've seen reunion shows when they come back. See what you don't understand is i don't know patrick. Mahomes really killed on the first episode. He was all but they brought them back brought back. He felt more comfortable. felt better. you know why because one design is i go around to partner right there. You got andy reid you are this close to success when you have bruce areas being real. That's not the same starting point you've got a spare personalized things. Go into these chairs. Okay if you yield the same output right say at fox of two shows yield the same output sale the same amount of commercials do the same thing as far as using the same output. Then the person who has to do more is more valuable to shows using the same output. The show that's longer is more valuable. If you and i are doing the same show if you're in six of the eight segments and i'm only intuitive eight segments then your more valuable to the show if a show is longer than our show when we heal the same output. They're more valuable to the network. Tom brady patrick. Mahomes have yielded the same output a super bowl appearance right now put but patrick mahomes has done more to get them to that super bowl based upon the numbers patrick mahomes as doing more while using the same output there for he's more valuable. I don't see it that way. Even though i i like what you're setting up like the construction of it because last year this same office. That was number one in yard is number. Three points tampa bay. They had a guy that was giving you output and people were like. Yeah you output into my house to the neighbor's house in opponents power play every everybody was getting some of that output but then tom brady cleaned all that up versus pats beholds tremendous your super bowl champion you repeating but god just starting from a high you'll know is much more difficult to build something that's a little. Just go over there. And it's already ready every christmas when you open your gifts first thing you do. Is you say what i want. Then you like yes. That's what then you check. Do they need batteries. Because mama mama about oh batteries and then after that say throw orange. You have to assemble it right. Tom brady looked under the trees that he had. This simple as still wasn't discouraged. It's tom brady. Come on coming up. The lakers took an aol last night. But we'll tell you if they have. Bigger question marks steyn clippers. That's next speak for yourself listeners. It's charlotte wilder here to tell you about my new podcast with marc tightest called the people's sports podcast. It comes out every thursday. And mark. And i take one of the big stories of the week and then we go off on tangents. You never saw coming. This might mean we start talking about the dodgers winning the world series and end up wondering if knicks fans deserve happiness or begin with lebron's greatness and end up drafting our ultimate beer league softball team made up of old athletes. Whatever it is the only rule of the shows that it has to be funny because these days we could all use as many laughs. We can get so. Check it out wherever you get your podcasts. And come down weird sports rabbit holes with us. We can't wait to have you now back to speak for yourself saturday. Caleb plan one of the best pal fighters inbox in pless. Perfect record super middleweight. Title on the line against kayla. Saturday eight eastern on fox and fox. Sports take his. Let's get to the nba battle. Right here and la la la la la la la box clippers lost tuesday so but without kawhi leonard air paul george and patrick beverley for protocol before they have won seven straight games. That's right yup. The lakers lost in the closing seconds last night to the sixers and dropped his second in western conference got the bring in our guy fawkes. Nba analysts slick. Rick dubuque but i'll twist team has bigger question marks clippers or is obviously the clippers people. This is a silly silly question. We're still trying to figure out. Can the clippers coach coach. That's what Time lou played. He coach doc rivers for the entirety of his career except for when he was lebron james. When it's chip with lebron james well bron browning therefore you know more tied lou and neither is doc rivers so can tie squad. Meanwhile we all blame. Doc rivers myself included. Who's the number one team in the east. And who is their code. This is awkward. So that's my first question. My second question is was really good with pga. Still trying to figure that because the last time we saw them now the real issue at hand for why does is so simple as this slit sell. What question mark. Because lebron james ever left on answered. Lebron james tens to every and any question is he the chosen one. Can he live up to the hype. Check erik spoelstra. Will he be able to redeem him from not being able to get out to first round. Check anthony davis ad. He can't win. A playoff series win multiple playoff series. Lebron answer that question. Any question you've ever asked about the bron james. He has answered. So why will i continue to have a question about someone who quite literally should be called the answer. I understand that was already reserved for ai. But lebron james can go ahead and take that title along with the king because he provides all answers. I'm not silly enough to ask a dumb question because there are some dumb questions contrary to what you teach not show. I may be slick but you are smooth. Lift the whole concept of this conversation. What question has lebron not answered. That doesn't mean that there can't be questions and i'll get to lebrons in a second but there are plenty of questions to be asked about. These lakers collectively and i'll be honest. I didn't have this at the beginning of the season. The moves that they made the additions that they made mantras. Marcus wes matthews dennis schreuder. They got more athletic. They got younger. This is exactly what they needed. I did have a few concerns is mark assault washed toronto. I was assured that they were going to be okay. But usually when you go and play with great if you a role player and you play with great players the game gets easier and your officiency goes up and we have not seen that with markelle saul. We've not seen that with mantras harrell. We haven't seen that with wes matthews. There actually. I can't believe it lakers fans probably having a shock. They might be missing. Danny green a little bit based on what they saw against philadelphia last night and on the me on the other hand when i look at the clippers editions which i thought were nice and solid. All of those guys are doing what i expect them to do nor is shooting career. Highs percentage wise. Same with nick tune. And so it's not that. I'm saying that. The clippers are convincingly better than the lakers. That would be silly to make that point. But i came into the season. Thinking about the lakers just rolling on they were the prohibitive favorite. And then over these these eight hundred nine thousand nine games. I've i've looked at it and said well. The record looks nice. Those additions are not helping. And who have they beaten. There's only one quality team that they've beaten. It's a gaudy record. The milwaukee bucks or the only quality team then played a whole lot but still only quality team that they've beaten so at this stage. I feel if good or bad. I know what the clippers are. I'm not sure. I have questions that the lakers are actually better than the team. That won the championship last year. Ooh slick okay way to go deep. It's going deep in our hair up a little bit. Look you said you came into the season thinking one way and kind of change your mind. I came into the segment. Thinking one way and i'll starting to let's be real about this. Look who has bigger question marks dancer clippers. Just be real about it. There's no bigger question. Mark of the clippers break through the glass ceiling of the second round. Let's just be real about the middle round games. The clippers up three one in a series. Can they break through kennedy. Hold a lead. Those are the biggest question marks. Snake you got me thinking now. These legs got questions as well because there are no perfect champion. Let's talk about this team. Right here in the los angeles lakers. You would think that their world beaters because their record best record in nba best points per game differential in the nba. Top seven scorn offense which means they're seven and second on defense. However you start to look at who have they beaten into lakers are two and four against the top sixty s this season including loss to the seventy sixers. Last night lakers are only three against top. Six seeds from the west lost. My clippers lost it. A blazers lost to the warriors. Whatever okay but my clippers four and two against the top six this season all from the west point is when you see a lakers team. That now has lost a game on the road. You lakers team. That has four and four at home. So i don't even know how it's going to play out in the postseason but no home court advantage as much as i look at the clippers. Say they have this global question to answer. Can they make it to the western conference finals despite their talent level. I'll looking at the lakers. Like okay try this one in saying tip from last year and we got better additions. If it's not adding up to be a greater team. Sounds like they have some question marks. The other part is with the lakers. When it comes to lebron you're right. He's answered every time we've had a doubt he's answered it but there's one that he's he's still has to answer and that is can he sustain this at thirty six years old now from what. I've seen him the way he's played this season. His efficiency has gone up his array of shots as gone up. He's playing we said yesterday. Feels as if he's toying with the game at times but there's a fine line between toying and and measuring yourself and making sure that you can get to the finish line and what i see in lebron at this point is i don't see quite that same explosiveness. Now he might be saving it but when see him with joel embiid at the three point line and granted made a play made a big play when he couldn't get past. Joel embiid with a running start at the three point line. I start to think okay. We've just assumed that father time is never going to tap lebron on the shoulder but maybe just maybe we're starting to see that and he's become aware of it and he's having to adjust game it doesn't mean that he can't be great but he might not be all that we've seen lebron. Here's one thing. I'll show throw ahead one thing last thing. It would be one thing if i was the only one who had questioned. But it sounds as if even anthony davis has questions about potentially playing philadelphia in a seven game series. This is had a good game played. Connor got him going. But i think our on that we have a very capable of games. There's some common way. Jerry capable of defending champions broke. Dr welby. seventy six the clippers east like. When did they ever get out of the second. Round are very capable of beating the sixers in a seven game series. That should be. Why are you even asking me that question unless you got smaller mantras herrell isn't what white howard you'd think. Maybe maybe i don't question your head and they don't want to sound ignorant not ignorant. You don't want to sound ignorant that you know we watched him. Ufc fight to watch a boxing fight. Whatever you know what. I can't stand with somebody gets ko tko whatever it is. And then they stand up. Like i want a rematch on the eighty. And i'm like you. We just lost. How dumb do i sound. If i'm like yeah. We just saw yet. They don't want to see us seven. No because it's gonna handle business. That's that's what is this a cognitive thinker but my biggest issue with this. You can't tell lebron or ask lebron. Hey i don't know if you can sustain but then be mad at him when he's not knowing all out. It's a contradiction. Marcellus ran track national champions looking case. You've never read recordholder tells you so. Well thank you matt l. Aware now al bundy slick yes. Somebody's meets with marcella coach. Probably told marcellus was a. Don't go all out pre limbs. Just make sure you qualify for finals right. Like don't know allow just make sure you qualify now. Marcellus track coach. Can't then be mad at marcellus after marcel is qualifies for. Why don't you run any faster. Having just qualify ran faster but culture. I feel as though that's what you win. Some of us are doing like wait. A second lebron. Just make sure you stay in and get to the finals lebron. Why didn't you beat the clippers. Lebron it's your nature because he's thirty six years old and he's played at this amazing revolt. These years at some point it begins to slide and considering how heavily the lakers still rely upon lebron james to be all lebron james can be that has been my number. Was my number one thing last year. Does he have enough help to be able to sustain this and get the job done. I'm asking the same question now. And i think it's a valid question. Not because i doubt lebron james i don't doubt the effects of father time Great points great points. I went into it there about a father. Time like its interested. Everyone thinks that it has to be overt. It has to be explicit when you talk about how father time is the athlete. How father time is undefeated. Slap uniphase killers is just starts to slow you down. You don't even see unless you look under a microscope. D you like. Oh you're not the same look at these silent killers. That are killing the lakers right now. Twenty first and free throw percentage auto people like who care about fritos. Well those are free points and when you or the team is not gelling the same you need though. So that's not good nineteenth and turnovers this year. Oh what's going on with the lakers. Meanwhile the clippers they over there trying to make history in terms of their dynamic. Duo listened to the fifty forty ninety combination. They have gone kawhi. Leonard and paul george and still averaging over twenty points per game and i remind all you historians out there. Only four players and history have been able to do that score. Twenty fifty forty nine hundred. The clippers may have to this year alone. It's going down coming up. Tom brady has his bucks in the super bowl. But we'll tell you if he's actually getting too much credit for their success too much as nets basically says watch. Speak for yourself marseils. While the manual immaculate i go looking great net purple. Let's head to apple bay tom. Brady's listen greatest getting a lot of praise for leading the bucks to their first trip to the super bowl since two thousand two but according to tap was gm jason light is not just about light. Say quote there's a lot of talk of what thomas don't for this locker room. Ns all warranted. Gronk has done for this locker. Room is equally as amazing. Wow so i'll choked. Tom brady actually getting too much credit for the bucks success. Too much though again. Too much credit man. It's just the defender in speaking. We get so infatuated with tom. Brady's previous greatness now again. We're just giving all praise all credit. All the steam to tom brady when i other players out there doing it now. I don't want to put the wet blanket if you will on. Tom brady's greatness. I'm just going to speak some truth in. Jadu switch all must tom. Brady's first playoff win this year. Against what was it taylor. Heineke taylor haina then tom. Brady's second playoff win this year against drew brees in his worst. Hold on to ask relationship with the. How did he do not resuscitate. Ever tom brady volt for whatever. Reason todd bowles. The defend drew brees. Goes out there at the saints. Have four turnovers. The most turnovers at the saints had had all season long. I don't do it. Tom brady had everything to do with that defense. For the buccaneers. Then the last playoff game. Shout out to tom. Brady going to lambofield winning but wait a wait a wait tom brady did you. Three interceptions and again you've only three interceptions once all season and only three interceptions four times lustrous playoff career. Tom brady. Gop the packers in that game but you still laying really ball. Wait a second. Tom brady then last five. Drives you only average twenty one yards of dr. Furthermore the last five drives you have three points in three picks. Make that make sense. Tom brady threw the ball to the other team. As many times as you put points on the board come on now sales so if we're talking about. Are we giving too much credit to tom. Brady yes not to say. Tom brady doesn't deserve credit. Not to say tom brady doesn't deserve a lot of credit. But just look at the play offs. This defense is forced seven turnovers and three games in the playoffs. He played against taylor. Defense put drew brees likely into retirement and then against the packers. Tom brady even play well. Yes tom ghost you say yes. Tom brady henderson playing well for the season. Yes we give them too much credit big as soon as i hear it yesterday too much credit. Tom brady go into that. Dusty all situation in tampa bay and making them a super bowl attendee let alone maybe a super bowl championship squad. I know somebody out here. Hating yes somebody's out here hate and because the under appreciation for tom brady is carrying over from new england to now tampa bay. We heard this every single year about tom. Brady and not as good as this success. Says he is. Okay well if you want to say that go. Hey but last time. I checked top rate is going for his seventh ring. Seventh ring and no other player in history has even played in seven super bowls. If i were tom brady. God knows who to give that type of talent and that type of success to could. If i were tom brady. It'd be ambiguous in this situation. I'll be out here. Flex shutting up haters that. Say something against his legacy. Let's talk about this situation. Because i know what jason light was going through the be real tremendous success overnight success as they say in our business in norton success zero to one hundred six assists and jason light right now just doing what everybody else would do. Pounding a six pack success stories. And brady's the man who will groff's demand read other articles. Antonio brown spectacular. I asked you choke because right now. He seems druk. And all of this excess. He's just saying anything like you said about. Scotty miller omar gone. We're in the super bowl and be running like he just saying anything jason light. I love you. Brooke doggy digit part. But calm down saying everybody did the same thing who's in contact with the team. More general manager head coach coach coach. By far it's not even close to what the head coach said about. The situation is to believe he gave everybody in his organization that this could be done. It only took one man into conversation. Bruce arians instead. It was tom brady. I'm sorry jason light a know you liked bronx. Gronk is cool to talk to practice. He makes a lot of good jokes. All of that said no one had the impact of tom. Brady y'all need to stop hating boy. We gotta bring in. Somebody knows something about. This situation are fawkes of analyst. Gregg genus so greg. It's tom brady actually getting too much credit for the buck. Success absolutely not shelter. No are you kidding me. Easy is the sole reason why we're even having this conversation. I hope you do this often. You always tell us. Come on to pay attention to the question america. Ucla china twist the question. America is says. Is tom brady getting own credit. Or the buck success. You're trying to make. It seem like we don't understand that there's other players on the tape. We understand that we understand that. You've got to go out there with eleven guys on each phase of of the of the game and other field but when you pay attention to a team that last year we weren't talking about who they acquire one guy in that guy then draws so much attention and he then he then reaches over where we are and says hey gronk come join me down here in tampa now grant goes was gonna go before tom brady ever got there. No was he going to have an impact in the locker room before. Tom brady ever decided to go. No it's marcellus is talking about. Is what bruce arians talking about. This is the tom brady effect. It's more than just what he's able to do on the football field and yes. His numbers wasn't electric but they were enough to get him to the super bowl. And we're watching and everybody else is going to be watching. So obviously he been doing some. I'm gonna take out somewhere. Y'all might not be ready to go put on your life. Brass marcellus put on your lil safety nets. You can't swim swim. They'll let food swim. Look let's let me go here. Let me go here. You don't drag with me. Is it that. Tom brady deserves all this credit for what he's done in tampa or does. Tom brady deserve more credit for choosing the proper location. Because it's not just about the talent you don't before y'all chez gilles man is not just about the talent you have. It's about where you go. Tom brady can went to the colts. Coastal have the same offensive firepower to the bucks app. Top-rated went to the chargers chargers don't know how to win a close game. Tom brady could've stayed in new england but they had no firepower. Tom brady chose to go to a great destination. And i applaud tom. Brady's brilliance and doing that so i'm going to personalize it so it's not just me talking crazy. I didn't have to come to this network stated another network pit hosting a radio show. I wouldn't have changed my talent level. But would i ever ascended to the heights that i think we have a senator over the last several months. No because by coming here. I ended up in. La an ample partner. People like oprah so it wasn't just about my talent. It was also about a destination. My point is this. they'll y'all acting like. Oh tom brady. Tom brady tom brady g sale. Tom brady threw three picks last game. Got severely outplayed by aaron rodgers. Drew brees four turnovers because the great defense of todd bowles and the buccaneers week. One taylor heineke. Who has heineke. I'm not going to blame tom. Brady for who. He is beaten. What i am going to do is properly. Assess how much credit. We give tom brady. That's all boy grew here. We didn't play an we're dumb. It's so funny that several. That's cool people oprah people that would cope people. You even say to people say. Coup person like oprah coup people and they want to start listen. I'm right here. i'll show acho doesn't understand that the process starts even the decision. You make to start the process. You didn't understand when i was a senior in high school. I'm going to be real about this. Y'all it's gonna hurt feelings happen choices like you are show and i chose to go to columbia for reason and one reason. Only because people don't think. I was smarter than i was and i didn't know how smart if i would've chosen university of texas i don't they got what else dumber but people would have thought i was not as smart. That's fair assist so the process starts even before you get there so now all of a sudden. Take things away from. Tom brady because he was smart enough to know. Where will my talents be highlighted. The best it's the simple situation like that. I'll tell you can't use that against a man all top of the fact that they wouldn't be in this situation without tom brady. I could give you nuggets at the nuggets to seven game winning streak number one scoring this boring boring. Tom brady led up there. We know how great. Tom brady averaged. Thirty four points a game. Tom brady was killed it. But let me get you this. I'm gonna use against you. Took my love. You don't do that. Bob one your partners that you don't want to mention that it's cooling when baker mayfield's teammates go out there and ball out nick chubb kareem hunt fancy acho credits baker for doing all of that he tried to do a carson west but nothing goes well off there but they were tom. Brady's teammates go and do you notice. He starts to take away from tom. Brady texas making. That will make it make sense. And i'm now going to use you against you. If i may show you said you went to columbia because people went assume you were smarter now. You may have intelligence or not but people would assume you were smart doors open in texas same reason. I got my master's degree. I got my master's degree because i want to dismantle the dumb jock theory. I'm not saying i'm any smarter. A dumber but it's going to increase my perception. The answer is in the question. If you're saying your perception of intelligence has increased and i my perception of intelligence increase than the perception of tom. Brady's credit has been increased because of the low dated for sensitive. We should demand. Get outta here. Welcome back to speak for yourself. Reports say texan star quarterback deshaun watson has requested a trade follows news that he has been furious with the team for not consulting him with their gm higher. Washington's trade demands come a day after news. Houston hired ravens. Assistant david coley to be their next head. Coach dread greg jennings. Nfl analyst is back with but marcellus. You what i you got an issue would yup. I got an issue with it. I have a few issues with it but let me try and prioritize. What just let me clarify that. We shouldn't confuse that show. Washington doesn't want to be or should be in a bad situation because he's a great player. No you shouldn't have to be in a bad situation. But don't confuse that would passageway nation how you're going to play yourself out of that situation. I have an issue with that. The trade demand the fact that for a month or so. The conversation has been about the shower watson being unhappy with a process the same process he didn't want and he knew he couldn't have decision making an so. What part of the process do you need to be a part of. He's just feels like he's just in his feelings. It just feels like he is really having adult tantrum. Which is fine. You could do that. This is your playing career. If you wanna play it this way. Play it this way. Not an issue. But it's certainly weird to me to see someone who's trying to flex when they can't fully flex like tournament soups. Like tried but tight. He's like this is a alto flexing them suits look. You can't try to pump me but then you still be. Hey that's what it feels like. Man shot watson is trying to tell us organization what to do but the organization to do it. Make that says party people. Oh because the sean is top. Thog quarterback by what metric by passing yards by completion percentage of quarterback rating gay but wins and losses. New buddy. we've had four suspect quarterbacks. Come through here in the last four years before you shawn watson and y'all have exact same record and you'll have the exact same amount of playoff appearances so make it make sense for me. I have an issue with him trying to go out there. A really trying to put this organization in a bad light when he can work through these problems and beat a savior for the same but he wants to run and go somewhere else. That's dysfunctional so wherever you go the sean day our big dog and good. So i'm gonna say something to my shock. You big dog you love me. No i have an issue with john watson debate got an issue with it. But i haven't issue with it because i'm a moralist. If that's a word. Principal banks. And i hate when things whether it's a relationship of friendship commitment when things are unequally yoked or unequally tied. I hate that. I wouldn't have an issue with it. Had to sean. Not put a no trade clause in his contract. But if you have a no trade clause in your contract you're now saying you're not allowed to trade. How can you there for go into abandoned trade. And the reason i have to hate it even though i love the shana love everybody. Ross with a love. Who even though. I love that i have to hate this. Because what else i hate even more than that is the nfl. They have a contract which is only binding from the team to the player. it's not binding from. It's only binding the player to the team. It's not binding from the team to the player. So i hate nfl contracts. Because you'll find a four year twenty million dollar deal that for your twenty million dollar deal is not binding from the team player. It only means player. You can go no where for four years but if we tired of you after one year wipe our hands which you and pay you whatever money that we are on the hook for but you not getting that whole twenty million dollars. I can't hate that. Nfl ideology and love this shawn watson ideology for that reason. I got an issue with john demand. Why can hate it. And i don't have a problem with them. Demanding i i do not want and talk about the no trade clause. That's him trying to make sure that he has a say that they can't just do whatever base. Oh please and get rid of him they choose to with the trade so that's him trying to look out for him when a lot of players wish we could have that no trade clause in our contract. Thank you anyway. But when it comes to watson and wanting out he's a briefing that he possibly could and this isn't here he say she say this is coming from the shawn watson saying that management. They spoke to him and told him he would be a part how much we don't know he didn't even know that part but he said out of his own mouth. Yeah i'll be. I'll be included and then to not be included. That's a slap in the face. We've all been in an teamed multiple teams and almost every team has what they call a player scouts or leadership group where they grab the leaders of the team and they bring them together just to see what the feel is what the what. The temperature is in a locker room. So that that can be echoed to the coaches and the coaches response to that can then be echoed by that leadership group to the players. Well it's always one sided. You want me when you want me. But when i want you to walk me included me. You don't want to and that's what disarm watson the sand like wait wait wait wait wait no you. You want me to tell you everything that's needed. But then when i'm telling you what i would like a thought that i need or we need in this locker room. You don't want my opinion is this is. This is my big problem with it. Like michael jordan. Before he became michael jordan he got drafted to the chicago bulls. They understood right then. He was a transcendent player. He was going to change the landscape. Both organization included him in decisions like getting doug collins. After his first head coach. Making sure that michael jordan was going to be okay with it. Why because they understood what they had. It wasn't that they were giving all this raised in all this acknowledgement of power to a player. But there's this stigma that seems to attach itself to organisations or owners that feel like well we can't. We can't have players involved in this type of decision but we can have them included when we're making decision in decisions predicated to the team with the locker room and how we want to handle certain things certain players when it comes to team a legal issue there on that stuff but when we're trying to decide who's going to run this not to get a players and put and that's what the shawn watson saying that you told me you would now all of a sudden i had absolutely no say in the gm or the head coach. But you want me to continue to do what. I've always done it because your pain greed. He's still doing that and he's always done that but now he just wants to do it elsewhere because they're not supporting him. And if i was the sharp watson. I would feel some type of way. I would be in my feelings. He deserves every bit. Be in his film. Were supposed to say now reaching a lot. You were preachy. But i live about the get up quietly back pew and go to a different church you talking about the lead me to the promised land. Because you've got these people up here saying one greg. I'm sorry passed a greg Receiver are known as divas. And i'll think you're dealing. I know a lot of receivers aren't but that's just how they label you guys because impart you are in your feelings. And maybe you can understand where he's coming from. Because that take pastor your sermon let me clarify a little bit too in terms of player empowerment because everybody always runs to the top of the mountain. See michael jordan. Mc y'all remember. Michael jordan was on record saying. He didn't want phil jackson and didn't really like phil jackson the beginning like it the way he was going about his practices in the way he was going about coaching in the beginning. So sometimes you just should listen to him here because he may. He may not know which way is up in those situations. But i digress. I love what you say greg though. Here's the thing about a no trade clause if you're the houston texans. Yeah we'll give you the shock. Yeah you can have a say if we trade you but guess what the show we never trade you. You are a top five quarterback who needs to have top five win percentage who needs to have a top five outcome not just performance. Make translate. Stop being in the same conversation as brock osweiler. Sorry quarterbacks we've had who had mirrored symmetrical success on our team so when you look at this situation the man i wish he just said it would his chest and sounds like he's flexing now but it's still not a full flex in the beginning. I knew that there was a bigger issue than with the shawn. Watson was making this whole process conversation. Think about it. Even you said greg a slap in the face dot you're gonna give all of this for slap in the face. You know a funny about it. I've been here before. I break up over a small thing you know why because i got a big ass mountain behind me of all the things. I've been letting powell up. Some are suppressed as some been expressing but none of it was dealt with so now. The straw that breaks the camel's back is still just a straw. Got like that. Dang is this going to float bam near the shah. This issue is not a big enough issue for you to kick off his dust so if you wanted to really tell me or at least convince me to come on your side say is speaking. Which but here's the thing unless this all wrap it is a big enough issue sale about it. The shawn watson knows his legacy career super bowls are on the line. You want to just sit there and suffer silently. That's the houston. I'm saying no not the way nine roster exactly does not with that management not with the players not with the names those steel and make them all come to you. If your quarterback they come. Tom brady bar people diamond. Read what other people are saying. Andre johnson he's like man how you don jessie are headed. Says he do nothing about you. Doing something gonna say. He's don't get thanking. Educate you for the best. Education is through your action. And he's up. He's got me up here and fighting you. He's trying to learn from my in action. Big dog tacit a left. That relationship did not. I don't mind. I don't mind. Learn for my inaction is what he's trying to say. I didn't leave that unhealthy relationship. That's on me. i was dumb. I should've left that unhealthy relationships. The shawn watson. Leave and the shawn watson is sitting here like man. Andre johnson. He right man. Jj watt he probably area foster he probably. They wasted the prime of their career win. Nothing let me get. Batty's kelly's may be marino never one then you said never win the wiz. The only reason we talk about marino when his name is always because he didn't with That's the only reason we bring non on this show when marino come up when charles barkley comes up no but we talk about how charles barkley is wild out here. He's talked reckless and we talk about how he never won when we bring got montana. We don't bring up his outfits. We don't bring up his hair. We bring up how he won. The sawassan is like a. I'm not gonna waste my career not been a waste of my career. That not going to happen. So i'm not. I have the issue with him. Demanding it but i fully understand it because he always this career big dog not for me. Not for you. Not for i agree. One hundred percent and marcella is you. You just brought up him not winning and being in a top five you want to be in the top five change the wins and losses column in. That's what we. That's what we do with quarterbacks players so if he has an opportunity to watch our same he's not gonna wait until it's too late. He's doing it right now because far too often. How many of us wait. Because we're trying to be loyal to an organization that has no intention has never had any intention on being loyal to us but we think if we continue to just play on a high level. They'll do they'll do right by me. Bill even include me in certain situations. Even though you say well why. He's throwing a tantrum because he hasn't been included. It doesn't mean they have to listen to what he says. Just include the man. Just sit at the table. Only say yeah. Just bring me to the table. I'm not saying do what i actually do. And then i will widen the table. Let me understand where you're coming from and where we're headed. Show me where we're headed. It's hard to believe the sean in this situation. He's saying that they're lying to them or miscommunicated to him. But just a few months prior you signed on for extent shift or one hundred and sixty million dollars and you said how invested you work in the team in the city in the community in organization. Who's lying like it's hard for me to believe him when he's going to listen to other players who had their same opportunities and tremendous leverage at times and they didn't do anything and all sudden it's like oh jeez always come back to utah young. Homie you know what i would do if i were you. You know what respect to you but your chance to do what you wanted to do and you did it. So this is what i wrote down longtime ago about advice. Advice is something you would do if you weren't me. But guess what buddy yet you had chain now must maternity to me at the shot. What you're doing right now doesn't add up to me coming up. Is that prescott staying in dallas. We'll tell you if we'd be surprised if deck in the cowboys part ways and that's next for yourself twelve back to speak for yourself. Let's dallas where. There are plenty of questions at quarterback that i had a season ending injury while playing on the franchise tag and now dallas has a big decision to make jerry. Jones said earlier. This season deck is their quarterback. But keep dax from free agency jer. Yes either tagging for nearly thirty million dollars. More sign long-term deals rajko. You'd be surprised if the cowboys hardaway. I wouldn't be surprised sale. And i wouldn't be surprised because i played in the nfl too. 'cause monitored the nfl and three. Because i listened to people in the. Nfl what aaron rodgers. Tell us just two days ago. The only thing certain about the nfl is uncertainty. I've also witnessed firsthand know by played for the eagles played against the marco. Murray in the dallas cowboys remember two thousand and fourteen demarco murray ran for eighteen hundred thirteen touchdowns and led the nfl. Also at rush attempts led the nfl in rushing yards rushing attempts rushing touchdowns. He went on the cowboys next year. One who's playing for the eagles in the same division the only time in nfl history. That's ever happened. That team has swept in all those categories and not been reassigned. So if i've already seen the dallas cowboys let a star player walk. It wouldn't surprise me if it happened again. Now you can say well demarco. Murray is not dak prescott. Must i remind you. Demarco murray was that dude. In two thousand fourteen romo and dez bryant. They went to the playoffs. They made a little bit of noise. So let me just remind the other thing is. You've taught me this when you're going into negotiations. What's the other side of the table here. What they say. So what is jerry. Jones gonna say he's going to say okay. Well dat three which you this year on pace to go for and twelve. Dak coming off an injury. Don't know how well you're going to play and dak most teams don't win the super bowl with their quarterback commanding a large chunk of the salary cap. Okay dak you've only won one playoff game you've been twice jerry. Jones has a litany of items that he could throw index face as well if he wanted to so. I'm simply going to say. I won't be surprised if he doesn't resign. I'll be surprised and shocked if he weren't a dallas cowboy for next year and going forward. You've got sign. Dak prescott is simple. Let me just go here and correct you to demarco. Murray wasn't debt. Do dead everybody about nicknames. Pound down to mark moore. And you certainly want a quarterback and i do and being quarterback changes everything. Be real about that this first of all. Just look at our final four football this year. And look at the quarterbacks. Tom brady patrick. Mahomes josh allen and of course my man aaron rodgers where you go oh kabul anyway. Point is there's a level and deck. You could say oh he not only level. Well people say that. About and then josh allen found a way gotta remember who Dak prescott wasn't a beginning of the season and terms of his impact on this offense in terms of his impact as success. League-wide really thirty two points a game. Four hundred eighty eight yards passing passer rating of one on one deck was ready and then he got injured. Okay i digress. Let's talk about dak prescott terms of his value. Because i think this is the real world were. We need to focus on value. And i think right. Now what's happening is because you know through your experience you know to all the people that you have followed and talked about this situation. That people in this world are making a mistake in terms of what the value of dak prescott is to the dallas cowboys. I learned a long time ago. Man when you fall in love you fall in love now. Everybody else fall in love with them you know. Mama don't like her mom. I heard y'all come over. I'm still coming over cooked. Greens and i'm leaving. And that's my girls still like and make everybody fall in love with what you fall in love with. Doesn't work bar by the way you just gave me a ball game. You bar we did. We usually have has had to let you know that was a bar. Okay appreciate don't compare love letters in this world. don't do it because they have all types away about something you feel and it's funny because we all have been there you've got feelings and you know how they make you feel like this is an amazing thing but you're running by people and they don't see what you see or they don't feel what you feel. They don't know the impact. We're just talking about numbers that prescott walks through that locker room. They stand at attention out of respect because they know their lear. So when you add it all up until man don't let these people talk you out of a good thing us real but what else does real is it. People in life take things for granted if it comes easy tool. Yeah take it for granted so think about that. Prescott came so easy to the cowboys man. You got tony romo tony. Romo never about eleven twelve thirteen years next thing you know. What are we gonna do. Romo's kind of hurt. Let's just throw a flyer dak prescott in the fourth round so a flyer at this kid from mississippi state have some flashes. They were ranked number one of the most of stole flyer on kind of good. Oh you kind. Of turned into a franchise quarterback a little bit for the chain. Oh if it was that easy. Maybe it'll be that easy again. But i think marcellus an even stronger point is this the. Nfl is a copycat league as a copycat league. We know that who's in the super bowl right now. The tampa bay buccaneers. What did they do. They said okay bump off his. Let's try to build and draft an a recruit. All these things no. We don't go and get a quarterback who has proven he can do it before with a roster we have and hope for the best catch a flash in the pan like garry rogers lake matthew stafford. I don't love matthew stafford. the world seems to. He's a hall of fame. Mars all the physical tangible african. all but the cowboys. You made the playoffs three times in the last six years seven years. Two of the times you've been knocked out by aaron rodgers and his green bay packers. You already know. Jordan love exists. You already know. Aaron rodgers is disgruntled. You just saw tom. Brady leave jerry jones. Now i'm not saying i would do it herself would do it but jerry jones. Some things that we wouldn't do you saw tom. Brady leave instantly bringing tampa super bowl. You can't tell me. Jerry jones sitting around like what can we do to get aaron rodgers. Can we. because here's the thing right now. Aaron rodgers probably got about five good years left. Who knows how. Many good years has that could be fifteen. Could be five could be one could be nut. We don't know also what's the good year for debt compared to a good year for aaron rodgers. Also you're going to have to pay thirty five million dollars or upwards of a long five year two hundred million dollars so you'll have to break deck off too. So if you're jerry jones probably sitting there like i'm gonna have to pay back roughly two hundred mil or have to pay back thirty. Five mill- debt morton aaron rodgers. What can i try to finesse. i'm just saying matt. Scientists think mad use earlier mad right now because you are thinking different about this situation. One dax value has went up and it keeps going up and the franchise tag is thirty. Seven point seven million. And if you're gonna sign a long term more than per year. Correct and josh allen. Lamar jackson up for extensions this off season bank breakers right so now look what. You've done it yourself jerry by waiting. That's fine because has don't you liferaft. Era does a matthew stafford now. Let me show you what jerry jones is doing right now. He's thinking because he heard so. He's like ooh that guy. Any from dallas makes smart kid university of texas to love that guy state board all right. But then there's some eminem's ams that he just can't digest on this situation air rogers one hand coming back to reunite with mike mccarthy's massages. You remember you've ever had a divorce the where you go in and you come out you gotta be careful how you treat people the way out because now dallas roster air rather south nights except keep talking on his mike mccarthy's besides just matthew stafford ain't nobody would a big arm stop playing and he's a contract older like six years older than dak prescott. We're not going any of those places pay deck paid coming up. Tom brady is headed to the super bowl without bill belichick. We'll tell you if he's proven he never. I mean never ever needed his former coach next week for yourself back. Tom brady is headed to his tent super bowl. But for the first time it will not be bill belichick. The pair went a record six super bowl titles together but brady moved onto a new system and a new head coach for his seven championship attempt. marcellus has. Tom brady already proven that he never needed. No i mean this is a big like what are we doing here man. Pierre jay is nothing without peanut butter like they meet each other. I don't understand this. World is so binary how people really take in information now. And i saw the change. I've seen it over the years change. It used to be about information and information will help you build up your argument to a conclusion. But now we're in this binary world where you just tap on apps and people wanting to just know where are you. And then just look for affirmation. It seems like that in this conversation as well brady needed and bella technique brady. That's the short answer. Here's the the lux version of that. Same answer if you wanna make me say it's not fifty fifty fifty one forty nine fifty five forty five. You want me to go. There is bill belichick versus tom. Brady let me tell you what bill belichick was sitting there. And he's a defensive minded coach. Text a flyer you say. They took a flyer in dallas on deck. What is the six round one nine nine. Pick flyer why they had one hundred million dollars quarterback by the name of drew bledsoe who use us slang that all over the yard close but not good enough right. Bella tick comes. Their defensive minded coach would a lot of attention to the defense to the tune of during their dynasty. The twenty years you know the number one scoring defense and nfl over the entire span. You know who it was. The new england patriots eighteen points a game and who was first and takeaways over their entire dynasty. New england patriots. That's right but everyone wants to say. But tom brady. Was there too. But everyone knows who. What's tom brady did this. But why are you doing this. We're not high enough but the defense is going to support. What tom brady was learning to do as he learned the ropes. I don't wanna take shots at tom brady. But in the world today everyone wants to parse and pool two arguments. Okay if you're forced me to not go. Fifty fifty bella check helped breed. What became the goat. Which is tom brady but he needed ballot check to even get to a place where he can be considered to go our respect to take took me. Ask you this peanut butter. You eat the crunchy peanut butter at a crunchy. That nuts. Chongqing all that see. What's interesting is that yes. Pb and j. needs both peanut butter and jelly. Jelly could also exist with the peanut butter without the jelly sandwich with peanut butter without doughnuts without the crunch. See you don't need result. Bella is simply crunch big. Dog you are. You're not necessarily for the sandwich. Let me put something down to you now. Need a bread and butter with bill already. One went to fifty percent went to the super bowl. Fifty percent of the time eighteen years and super bowl no healthy hello right. Eighteen years nine superbike about say we're bruce arians baton hundred wow we ought coin flips versus one. Don't get off hood that's what davies. But here's here's one more layer that you haven't thought about. I had thought about it. Shout shout out to the people in stats. Ballots yet. Goes to england and drew bledsoe. Was there so it already gone to a super bowl into some pro bowls. Drew bledsoe had the worst year of his career win loss in his year. Bill belichick us out. Liar you're right. Cam newton former. Mvp goes to new england cam. Newton municipal five years prior share. He was injured and whatnot. Cam newton had by far the worst year. His career with brill ballot check. Oh wait a second now. So so you're telling me. Pro bowler been to super bowl. Drew bledsoe worst of his career. Wins losses rebel belching check win. Vases he had eleven losses cam newton that to check and has the worst you hear of. It wasn't works by wins losses. You changed mirror but it was. I love you. University of texas coming a metric in which you can be the worst things that he was seventy eight secure. He's talked about how came only three on these and it'll do if cancun had the worst year of his career. That's not good. Tom brady he goes to tampa. Were in the most touchdowns he's ever had third most passing yards. he's ever had So if you're tons brady you're having individuals success and you haven't collective success. Maybe you didn't really need bill belichick at all. 'cause drew bledsoe. You didn't help him. Cam newton sure as heck help him. Make all sail make man. All guys say is brady didn't lead the patriots to twenty five or more points than any of his first five. Playoff games still. They didn't lose any of them. That includes those super bowls as well. But we'll talk about this tomorrow because we got a lot to talk about now. Fox super six has given away nearly four million dollars already download. The fox super six half entered a super bowl contest for your chance to win two hundred. And if it thousand dollars of terry bradshaw money. All you need to do is pick six outcomes in the super bowl. It's completely free to play for top stories scores and more go to the fox. Sports app coming up drew. Brees future is up in the air. We'll tell you if the saints super bowl window has officially closed net big for yes Welcome back tom. Brady's butts ended the saint season a couple of weeks ago. Now near future is in flux. Drew brees has not announced qatari coming back next season. In addition to that general manager mickey loomis and knowledge that his team salary cap issues. Are bad all daunting but they will still do everything they can to win. The think so. I as a saint super bowl window clo- yet during the slam shut and more importantly i don't really feel bad for. I can't like saints. Y'all toyed with minnesota to the point where you let a minneapolis miracle beach. You like a team. That you really shouldn't even have been toying with led by case keenum not even kirk cousins than the next year you toy with a young head coach and a young quarterback jared goff to the point. Where a bad call nonetheless but it was so close that a bad call really is what ruins that game then. The next year you toy with the vikings again a team that you really should be better than but you let them get ahead and toyed with them to the point where y'all going over time and in your house in the superdome they beat you next year you stop out the buccaneers twice in the regular season but then in the playoffs offs. You toy with them so much. So in toying with yourself for turnovers met you let them beat you a you stomped out twice. So the window is closed because their best players are aging malcolm. Jean ham jordan's lee breeze. Their best players are aging. Yes they have lattimore. Mike thomas kamara. I get that the let's be real but nucleus of that team getting older. And i really can't even feel bad for man. You took me there on that part first of all. Let me just answer the question. Yes close paint. Should you ever been in new york city mo new york painting when he like. It's just a seventy scrape. Rain opened the window like desktop problem here in the situation and i didn't think i was gonna feel bathroom and then hearing you double down. Made me say okay. You're right because the first three years. Would you breeze misplace awesome two of those three seasons the next five years. You made the playoffs. Four to five next few years ms playoffs and all three the end last for you made the playoffs in all four season. You detail what that looks like. Add it all up survey says one super bowl as my grandma used to say to all my little cousins. The girl cousins baby don't show you don't waste show pretty and i was like grandma. What the hell are you talking about. She says hey you better get what you gotta get when you can get in. You got drew brees and going get it like they should have got it so it's a sad situation when you talk about. How daunting this offseason is when you know. They're more unknowns than knowns and then they have they worse. I'm not even giving you hyperbole. They were caps situation. One hundred twelve million dollars over the cap projected next year. The hell to do. You can't make moves. Everyone is aging on this roster. You need to find a quarterback. Is james winston coming back and if he's coming back at what number with no cap money it's going to be an interesting scenario when you talk about how they're gonna go bro. Think about this. The saints had forty nine regular season. Wins over the last four years forty. Nine regular season wins in four years. The most in a super bowl era without a super bowl window shut saints owning feel bad for you coming up. Houston got a big problem and uncle jimmy. Hopefully we can solve it. He got something to say about it next. Speak for yourself oakland. Jimmy joins us shawn watson one out here. You got a few things to say about the drama. Houston take it away. I need to know what ails going on down in houston because then all the sudden for no apparent reason we got these black cap leads. The wanna get out of houston faster than the proud boys wanted to get out of there. Somebody needs to tell me what the hell's happening instant on. The street is that they must be getting ready to shut down the strip club. Plus they getting ready to ban the sale of limit pep talk for somebody said getting ready to pass a law. That's going forth. All athletes have to pay. Paul kurtz house. They also be cap least prude. By making take test. Been here hated. The biggest problem with is finding out to face a little housing. They contract this forcing them to have thirteen hundred feet and kardashian. True the way. I'll see if there's another brother texas in about three years. That might be why not go back home deck that's it.

Everyone's fucking grill all up in the guts lawyer players are going to be allowed to roger goodell this year. He's gonna go so hard on his first couple. You know he's been he just wants to touch. He just wants to touch these. These young men who are going to Be under the tutelage of roger goodell. He's going to change their lives. he's backslap but slap maybe even a little kiss. Yeah french i hope that they do. There's one year where he came pretty close to kissing a player. Yeah sometimes roger goodell. He just likes new players being in the league and he he. He's watched the tape. He's gonna make up for it. Yeah he's he's definitely had like some intricate handshake plan for the last year. We're not going to get to see him down in his basement again this year. Maybe that's with the maybe the first person across the stage we the green eminem and magic bill de balk fucker. Eat it up. You guys think will make any more false promises about donating to charity and sitting next to him during a game. Cave probably went out with him. Yeah why not once you once you do at once in everyone's like damn that was really nice and then you don't have to do it then you just do it all time talk about that and is it going to match that to me to match and i was gonna give my shirt control room right. Exactly it's tough two hundred and fifty thousand dollars. I was going to match. Roger did it. But i can't now so that's expired. My offer has expired. Do you think it's disrespectful. To roger goodell if player chooses not to attend the draft. Ooh you think. Roger looks at them for the rest of their career. Like you had your chance to hug me and you didn't. I think trevor lawrence isn't gonna stand right. I'm pretty sure he's not attending attending thomas on the go fishing. Yeah that's what i would do. I if i were to be drafted. I'd do joe. Go fishing with joe thomas. His dad guess being draft. Yes yeah and and i mean that would probably be better than sitting in a green room and having to because it is he is going to go out of control hug his first one. He's gonna hold anything back and now are there fans going to be the traffic's. Yes yes so booze back. Who's your back. Yes roger gudel member. Oh my god. I'm cringing now thinking about last year. Remember when you had the digital booze and he's like bring utah to hear it but either way the draft week is great. I know it is felt like it's taken forever. It definitely feels like it should have been last week or the week before or finally here draft week tons of nfl talk. We have todd mcshay coming up. I'm getting more and more nervous about which quarterback the bears are going to reach for And then right now. They're going to draft kyle. Trask and then he's gonna stink and your life will be made a living hell by quarterback who sucks that. Looks exactly like billy football you know if it was really truly to be a living hell it would be that. He's good for a little bit and then everyone keeps her job. Yeah it would also be very bears though to do the exact same thing that they did with glennon a couple years ago. Yeah they signed any. It's your job your qb one. They just they said he was q. One one eighty one four eight fourteen and then they draft a quarterback who immediately supplant some. That will be very fun. I'm yeah i'm excited. Though for draft draft night as always we'll we'll be doing I don't even think we'll have a guest on friday. Because we're gonna have all the stuff to recap i dry. I really want to see the raiders. Get back into raiders. Full swing where they draft the fastest wide receiver. Maybe even trade up for the guy the probably the first wide receiver who will ever wear number one in the nfl. Spend a fortune on the value chart. That's actually something. We need to dive into a little bit. Is the jimmy. Johnson draft value chart because apparently like forty years ago. Jimmy johnson just sat down had a couple of captain morgan's and cokes and just put numbers next to every pick and that every coach is like. Yeah i'm just going to go with. Jimmy said well i'm he also made made the greatest trait of all time yup in the draft. So i think that's more why people are like jimmy johnson's gene. It's just funny. That jimmy johnson is the guy that we look at as being like the math analytical wizard of the nfl draft what was the actual trade. I want to look for. It was herschel. Walker herschel walker. I can't remember albany. How many picks the ended up getting but it literally was his draft chart built the dynasty of the cowboys off that one trade. Yeah herschel walker. I'm up right now. Hey did you see your boy. Tom brady weighed in. He essentially wrote a blog about how he doesn't like wide receivers being allowed to wear low numbers. Yeah and all this point. Spend a lot of sense. What were the point again. Just let anyone where any numbers lyman have to wear specific numbers. Why can't anyone wear any numbers. Why even wear numbers at all. Yes just give us give the teams two different colors so there. I'm looking up. The players traded obviously herschel walker went to the vikings and then in exchange so the. The cowboys received a couple Defensive players from the vikings as well in exchange the cowboys received. Minnesota's i second and sixth round pick in nineteen ninety first and second pick in nineteen hundred one and then the first second and third round pick in nineteen ninety-two. That's walking in insane yet. That's stats so jimmy. Johnson you are genes now you going back to his draft board. It really like. I'm sure he is a genius for creating it and everyone following it but really it should at the bottom of it like just find someone dumb enough to give you all your picks trail running back for every tyrod for the next year. That's the new moneyball or the nfl. If you can find a team that will just trade everything for a running back that you think will change. Your people would freak. If this trait happened right. Yeah because like even. I mean the fact that it was i it was. It was three years consecutive of first. And second round picks. That's fucking insane. Well then takes the vikings because they made the cowboys what they were in the nineties What coach these days do you think would be most likely to trade their entire draft for really good running back. I feel like it might be gruden. He might do it for derrick henry just because he's just because of his size i feel like gerd is a guy that respects mass. Yeah yeah gruden Sean mcvay would trait every pick for any like he'll just trade picks just because they don't exist anymore trying to think i actually i wouldn't pete carroll seems like a guy who's going to try to do a quick fix at some point uh-huh like i'm just gonna trade everything for some sick i don't know tight end or maybe kyle pits like yeah. 'cause they're in that weird spot. I think it's always a situation. Where you're trying to placate a star and also rebuild on the fly and you're like let me just hit this button and hope it works. You might see a new coach doing something dumb like the guy in atlanta. What's his name. Smith arthur smith who Thickness squeezed needs to just throw this out there. Every time his dad is what the fedex like the ceo. Fedex the founder fedex. Something if you're asking does this guy. Love football yeah. He does because his dad is the ceo fedex and he could have just been rich. He's like i wanna grind tape and be an offensive coordinator for a bunch of years and then hope hopefully become a hopefully get the dignity of being able to stand on the sidelines as my team collapses in a breeze down my neck yes. That's all he signed up for right right so he had. It's like running away to join the circus. He rebelled against his family by becoming a football guy. Instead of becoming. Tom hanks from castaway right. now he's the head. Coach of the atlanta falcons put that guy since it is season of. Does this guy love football. I think it's pretty pretty fair to say that he loves football. Yeah but you could. You could always count on a new coach trying to outsmart the entire rest of the league. Like no one's ever thought of this before it's usually mistake that's been made like hundreds of times right zig zag recently. That's why still i mean i. It would be so sick at the forty niners. Just drafted cockpits. Double tight end. I have been thinking about that a lot of calcium and hands the one guy one of the only guys who can do it and everyone. It won't say wow. That was so stupid. They'll say. Oh my god what does he see that we don't yeah they he could have. Cj beathard play all year next year. Just be yeah cash in on the reputation right now all right i want here i want to hear brett farve take on players wearing different far. He loves putting takes. I'm gonna give credit to brett farve. I fucking hate his guts Probably came through when we had the interview with nothing to do with politics. But because green bay packer but He has figured out a way to create his own ecosystem of saying something inflammatory and then going on every show to answer to it. Yeah it's actually genius. I don't think he knows that he's doing that on purpose. But he says something on his podcast. Everyone gets mad and then the next day it's like brett farve with colin coward. Brett farve with skip bayless brett. Farr like all these shows so it's probably bus cooked doing all this but Yeah brett farve away to just keep his name just constantly trend. Well he keeps in the new cycle because what happens is he'll say something podcasts. He'll get invited on the show and then on the show. He'll usually like halfway apologize. Yeah and then team z. Writes an article. That's like brett. Farve apologizes for what he said on us but then he does another podcast and he talks about apologizing for it says something else dumb and then he goes on another show to apologize for that. It's actually brilliant. Yeah he is. He is figuring he's hacked the system. He knows how to get people talking about. Brett farve All right so other than we want to talk about. The ufc had an incredible fight. On saturday night. I watched the highlights. Because i want to sleep Told dad move. I know hand up. was still tired from rough and rowdy the night before but it was so. There's a couple of things that come out of it. One is jake. Paul kind of owns dana white. A little bit. He alludes bit now. We're we got his fana- white. So so jake. Paul shows up. Everyone says fuck you jake paul. He makes a whole scene of it. Everyone's talking about him. Daniel cormie gets in his face. And i gotta give by the way. Billions here this billy's last week before he goes away and finds himself. I gotta give billy credit because if you saw jake paul afterwards said daniel cormet like. Let's sign the deal. You're shorter than me. I'll take you. And i was like god. It like billy's right. That's how that's how you do fights. Do you think that. Who do you think would win. Billy i think would win you but he put remember he. He can't lay down on top of jake. Paul true i dunno. I think tulsa lanham fighter to fight. Jake paul. look what happen and aspirin. Who we're going to discuss with at some point yes if you're back from eat pray chug Battle you should write a screenplay should get back from about what you learned finding yourself in a how billy got his back. We'll make a movie out. But yeah so so. The reason why i say jake paul kinda owns a little bit. He got dana white to talk about him in the post post fight press conference and he points out which it actually kinda makes sense. He's like hey. I'm i've done my third fight. Pay-per-view fight in my career is not even like real boxing in terms of heavyweight or i mean a belt right and he points out that he has made more money than every other. Ufc fighter before him except for be been mcgregor in their fight. Yes so basically. He's like dana. Why don't you pay your guys. So they don't have to come fight me and make their big payday and conor mcgregor by the way made his big payday. Boxing floyd mayweather. Right was was mcgregor taking a shot at us. Or was he taking a shot at jake paul when he said like the blogger. Boys that are that are trying to put on you. See say kevin durant. Okay got it got it. Yeah i would love. I would love to see that fight. I would watch jake paul. Fight anybody at this point. Because he's done a great job just voted. I wanna finally seem his ass kicked by somebody who is a great promoter. You know what he should do. He should announce a mystery fight. One night show up. And then just be like. I will fight anybody in attendance. That wants to fight me consecutively. One after the other and we'll see how many people in a row i scout just people in the stands want to fight me. I will take all comers. I would watch the fuck out of that. Yes that would be. Incredible billion would be there ready to go. I just think that jake. Paul like people don't really like them. Everyone's screaming fuck jake paul. But when he when he points out the money disparity he kind of has dana white there. He's got two guys like he was like make make the best fight at ufc and pay them shitload of money. Because i'm what i'm doing right now is i'm paying where we're fights me a lot of money and i'm getting paid a lot of money and approving that there's an alternative thing out there so i don't know i'm sure dana white data white's like a master at these things so it could even be a work and we could see jake paul. Get his ass kicked. Mma ring. dana does works though. Yeah i think when you see. Data's entire life is a work true for the most part. he's worked himself into a shoot of just living bright but it worked. I mean it does. He's made a lot of money doing it. He's got a good business model for dana white. The essentially like a dana white store. It's like come here. Give money to get into the dana white store. And then i'll give a little commission to the sales people that are out on the floor. The guys get knocked out. He's he's a good businessman. So i think he. He understands that if he had jake. Paul do something with the ufc. He would make a shitload of money but he does have that edge to him where he's like if i dislike somebody enough i will turn down there money. Yes because he doesn't need it. No he does not need it. But jake paul is i mean. He said he would. He would box. Mma fighter he knocked out the enemy fighter. You whatever you want to save up an aspirin who he was a champion but like maybe he's over the hill and he coming off injuries and stuff but jake. Paul has clearly struck a chord with ama. He's a master troll and he's unmasked patrol things the other two things to note. Chris wideman that leg injury was so fucking horrific. I watched it about one hundred times. Oh let's be honest with you. Because i love watching videos like that. He didn't know his leg was fucked up until he tried to stand on the his shin right. Because when you break your shin like diet kick it just feels like any other shin kick where he hit somebody else's leg where it hurts but then you try to step on it and then it just goes ninety degrees out to the side and i think i think like double leg fractures are. I was about say that the most painful injury to watch that will make me cringe instantly. I think like an elbow bending backwards. And that i think the tip fifth fridays knees are pretty bad. Like i always go back to willis mcgahee. We're kind of desensitized now when it comes to what we've seen too many knee injuries. Yeah that one's out leg injury and the guy who is fighting him you're urea how do you say his name urea hall. Yeah first ever fighter to win a fight without having to throw a single punch which is. Do you even take a shower. No i think you just kind of wipe down a little and go to the club. Yeah and then and then got sent to the shadow. Realm himself time that was punch is i mean. He got baptize so he got baptized. Actually with his own spit. He made them to spit up. Every single drop of liquid yet and it is his sweat. And i think his trainer was was dousing water as well which made the effects that much cooler. Yeah 'cause you could actually see his soul leaving his body And then the worst. Run which i think every you have fan probably agrees is the guy's obviously are trained to fight till like it's fully called but there's nothing worse than when a guy gets knocked out and then you see the natural reaction of go hammer more and the ref doesn't get in there fast enough this. I think we got in there fast enough but you always like oh my god is someone gonna die. Somebody like yeah so he was a pussy about that. And then i'll watch chris wagmans leg. Snap like seventy five times the you'll knock the guy out and then you look over your shoulder at the ref to see if the ref is going to be able to intercept you on your way in this guy's life right at the ref doesn't get you it's like hey that's your that's on you. You gotta be willing to step in. I i'm good. I think now that. I'm talking through it leg injuries. I'll watch forever head injuries. Make me squeamish tough. Do you think we'll ever get to an instance where someone gets knocked out. Somebody goes into finish them. The rough jumps on their body and then the ref gets knocked out by the hammerfest. That's coming in. Yeah i mean once we can still. Ucf thousand so many things happen. Yeah why not Hank where you can say something. I was going to say even crazier thing about the leg. Injury was that the the very like fight before two consecutive kicks. The guy basically broke his nerve on his leg and the guy couldn't stand up. The next flight happens starts leg injuries to freak leg injuries. Like right right back to back. And did you see the second of canada from The magic broke his ankle tonight and there was like he came down the the guy on all. I don't know how you pronounce his last name. Is that can yada. Can you pronounce a former jake. Look up He came down broke his ankle. And there was like it was bleeding instantly bad bad we dwight howard lord carry him now. Yeah everyone right now. Just do yourself a favor and just just take a second out of your morning and be like thank. Thank you god for my legs. And i didn't have snapping a ufc fight or break in an nba game. I would say the word hero gets thrown around a lot but you are somewhat heroic for forcing yourself to watch those injuries. Yeah because you love watching your. You're reminding yourself of what these guys put on the line. Entertainment that'll be your cross to bear. Yeah no i. I'll hand up. I'm like this but I just. I don't know. I could watch shows injuries over an racist crazy to watch like chris wiedemann's he like his bones didn't exist. He was like gumby yes lay exploded doors create one injury i can't watch on. Replay is the johnny knox bears when he when he got his back bent backwards. Oh yeah and like the back of his head touched the back of his heels. Yeah kennedy kennedy kennedy I can watch that for sure. Was there any injury you can't watch What about when just head. Injuries are really the ones that i just. Can't those ones i like. Whenever so in november you mute. Darren rebel when he's jonathan. Yeah okay what was the who who is like basically convulsing in the Texans who was it was it hoyer know who who got hit so hard. Ono's tj l. Like two years ago he got hit so hard was it was convulsing. That shit will fuck me up. I can't watch that. When the fencing reflex and put their hands that that folks the bolden one from way back when he gets face broken and he came back and played like two weeks later. Yes put any type of ankles shoulder. Tom savage tom savage. That was tom. Absolute savage i love Finger dislocation videos because the guy just looks at his finger yes it looks bad and then they go to the sidelines and they just pop back into place. Yeah i actually. I should have billy when you come back and start actually doing your job. I'll have you Make me a compilation of all the injury video like to watch maybe throwing a puke video two and then i'll tweet. She's what that's i'll do it. No i know. I'm i'm listen. I'm admitting it's fucked up. I'm saying it's fucked up. Are you the guy that like finds a new injury video and calls the boys over. It's like you guys got to watch this. I do if. I see a really bad injury. Like in real time. I'll definitely like yo you see that shit. That was crazy. Dish machine kicks illegal. Shin guards like they do in other anime sports really because like there's is like The maple bats are breaking more often people shins starting to shatter more often. Realize is that because like do you think people are skipping leg day. More off what's going on literally guys are just kicking so hard. The kennel god it. That's interest now. Is there a way to train your shins to be more resilient like if i woke up every morning when i was between the age of ten and seventeen and just hit myself in the shins with like a stick from a tree. I think you just hit the coffee table every morning. Yeah in which i do right. So are my shins over. Calcified problem where i could probably fight in may no sweat wolverine. Do you think someone could ever do that where they get medical shin guards in their body. Yeah and like implants like wolverine. How would how would they be able to stop that. I guess they couldn't with technology that we have with crisper did figure out as soon as they started breaking. Everyone's legs so so what i'm hearing in order to make your body super tough and over calcified when you're like eleven years old you just climb into the dryer and press start and then you just get bumps all over your body and then you're super tough when get out correct. Human body craves contact. The dodgers great The dodgers the padres have an awesome rivalry and And Trevor bauer. I don't know why people are surprised with trevor bowers responsive fernando tatis junior. Being like yeah. I'm actually happy that he like you. Know mocked me and people in pitcher should stop getting upset when people hit home runs off of them. I that's exactly what i expect i. Trevor bauer trevor control. But he never got the impression that he wouldn't be cool with being back right. He's a he's a really good message board user and he respects game when somebody else's able troll. He's not the guy that's going to call for the mod doesn't he's getting triggered no he's not he's not calling for the mods at all in this one he is. I mean he got owned yes. That's and he'll he'll be like i did get owned or so. Here's his exact quote which i loved. I this is great. He said when he was asked about fernando tatis junior he mocked by showing one i trevor. Bauer famously said that. Sometimes it gets bored. So we only pitches one i He said i like it pitchers. Who have that done to them in. React by throwing a people or getting upset and hitting people or whatever. I think it's pretty soft. Give a homer. A guy should celebrate. It's hard to hit in the big leagues. so i'm all for it. And i think it's important that the game moves in that direction. We stop throwing people because they celebrated having some success on the field. I fucked that response. Then he He went back and he found it clip of him before he hit the home. Run and you can see. Tha t's looking. Down and stealing assigned from the castro. Oh so now bowers mad about that. He's like oh okay. This goes beyond a little back and forth. which by the way is it illegal to look down. Catcher dad is illegal. I think that yeah. I think that's i think it's bush league right. I don't think it's illegal either. I think that's just something that happens. I think you. I think that's you just let it happen. No yeah the the catcher. They should have better signs right. Yeah stolen that. Can your science from second base right like it's part of the game. They should contact what happened. He looked at second base. And the way that since the examples a twitter like really really reaching. Yeah he looked down and then the catcher looked up at him but if the catcher was really like nervous. That totti's stole assigns. You could just call the time out or it could have just rewrite signs. Wasn't that serious. i have. Yes he's allowed usually the catch rates for the batter to set up before flashing. If the is looking for an advantage of will definitely be obvious and is frowned upon like cheating. Yeah it's frowned upon. So if you have a guy on second base that's but that's bush league bush to look at the catcher. I don't think the guy. I think it's flip can really am. I think it's bush. I think bush league to have a guy relaying them but it's illegal to look. I didn't realize he was actually looking at the catcher. It a really. I think it was a person who is reaching there. John paul i actually want to take back. I don't know who just trevor bauer. trevor bauer. He's i said yeah bedroom. Basically i said yeah i got owned but then he found this and he did the i'm not owned i'm not I think you know bowers probably going to do. He's probably going to hit up the crips or the bloods in la and be like. Hey can you guys work with my catcher and give me signs. That would be a big time. Trevor bauer through to win it like rated r. rick. Reilly chill no no. I'm actually not joking. i already know. I think that i could see. Trevor bauer doing something like that. He's he's the he'll definitely do something with like weird signs or like blinking or something. But he i. I just love this for baseball. I think trevor. Bauer my point forever. Is that trevor bauer. I know people hate him but he gets people talking. It's kind of goes back to this kind of the troll episode. Jake paul is the same way. Like i don't like jake. Paul put he gets the conversation. going away. should pay his his fighters morton. I don't really like bauer but he gets. Actually i kind of like trevor bauer. But he gets people talking and he gets people people's eyeballs onto the screen and people talking about baseball. And that's good for the game. Yeah there was also fernando. Tatis junior hitting two dinger's was the same day five inch five and three but he hit two in the same game on the same day that his dad. Yes hit two grand slams in the same game against the dodgers. I think against pitchers wearing the same number. This was just a stat. That bob costas. He saw this coaching was does kirch. Incursion just went crazy bob. Costas gets pink eye from seven his face so far up the stat. That's i mean that's that's baseball. The quirkiest game out there. You just love it. That's why the journalist love it also. We're entering a golden age of sons in major league. Baseball sons ever. Just look at the blue jays. Blue jays entire bluejays. Rossi's bob shut the other day. That's homer oh yes that was cool. He boba shed hit a homer that landed in front of the gym. The building the building that his dad and his mom. That's crazy crazy. Yeah it's fucking credit. That is crazy. Yeah that's crazy. That's wild wild wild. That's for sure why. Yeah in only. Like i don't know what is it five hundred now. Probably like three hundred miles West jim boeheim was proudly the northeast. Three i don't think. I don't think jim live there by. Then it was a jim. Yeah yeah he wasn't alive then was he buddy in the nineties. No well it's well maybe late nine. What's crazy. That's gonna fuck me up by the way for a long time that i'm going to think like a twenty one year old was born in nineteen ninety-two bill. Yeah look i. I'm not ready for that. Two thousand dollars and returning twenty one in college next college basketball won't have anyone who's born before one thousand nine hundred eighty. Well yeah wisconsin. Also brad davis oh nine hundred davidson and hand will be there until the end of time. But yeah that's gonna mess. Which crazy is that buddy behind right now. Plays in the same jim that his dad and his mom were married in. Whoa that's wild. Yeah straight up wa. It is wild street of wild or anything else before. Kevin durant is back. I had i had a thought today. I'm just excited for the nba playoffs. Because maybe it's because the last year with the bubble but just to see some new courts in action like the nets are gonna play probably till the eastern conference final or maybe in the finals. And we haven't seen that. Yeah in a really long time. Fan of just different courts. Yeah i courts. Hank exposed himself as a casual today and it was like. Ooh charlotte nasty. It's been an awesome nasty and a good way. No nothing gross. I love their jerseys to their jerseys are nice. I just don't like the. I don't know i don't like i don't like wait. How many look at it again. Because i think i might have said it was said it was revolting and people were like. That's how revolting means. How many games. How many hornets. It is their entirety. Do you think michael. Jordan watch this year if you probably like ten. The brexit pretty good solid dave assault team. It'd be funny if they got to. The playoffs. And michael jordan like he signed up for twitter on the night playoff star. And he's like discord is gross. Hold on gotta. I think it is your mind. That's your computer. The old hornets court had a sick like honeycomb pattern. No they had a they had they had one. I don't know if there was a honeycomb they had one that looked like they were mid tier like college basketball team back in the late nineties. Now one was sick. I'm in the minority on this one. But i like the memphis tigers court when so much. Yeah okay i can't. I'm looking at the hornets court right now. I can't remember. I think i I think i like it. I think i like it. I think i like it providing what i don't like what i don't like is when the court as long as there's some real wood on the court i can deal with it. It's the courts the to like the paint and inside the three point mark is like let's say blue and then outside of that is like red. Yeah that's that's too much unless it's like a a an outdoor basketball court that's got the green inside the key and the red outside or vice versa. I can live with that but yeah the horns court revolt painted. Actually oregon court is the worst quarter of all oregon courts unnecessary paint waste of paint. But you'd probably think a different way if you'd won the game against the celtics lost turned the game on it was like i revolted. Nice all right. So i actually. That was a good test because we have so many takes out there all the time that sometimes you accidentally just like go against yourself yourself. Yeah i just found it. I said the court in charlotte is low key fire so lucky i stayed. I looked hard enough. I stay consistent. I like we disagree. Yeah i think it's loki. Fire as of january twenty second. Loki fire In the oregon court is the worst of all time. I hate that. It looks like it's warped. Every time i see that court i get fucking so mad. I mean you mentioned the national bad too does look like a basketball court. Yes hoskins the weird off off color close. I liked the nets court because it makes it reminds me of Now we're just talking courts word ourselves to just talking courts I i like the nets court because it reminds me of Eastern michigan's football field the gray in the all funny for the action. This is fucking i. don't ask him. I kind of like it makes me kind of do a double take like is my is my tv fucked up. I think i think a basketball court we said would be if you were to be a tree that got cut down either want to be an incredibly bracket yup or basketball court would be the coolest thing to come back as. Yep maybe fernando tatis bat. Yeah that'd be pretty sick to money why they just print new money all time. But all money's the good money oh years old okay. You're talking about the old like twenty dollars. How many how is there. A five hundred dollar bill. I think so. Wouldn't you houston. How what is the thousand printed. Ever have thousand dollar bills. Who's on it. i think it was just. It was made exclusively for cocaine use. Can you find that for us. What's there is a hundred thousand dollar. Bill i still think. Press one of my one of my Dumbest slashed maybe most genius ideas is to counterfeit two dollar bills. Because no one actually knows what they look like. And no one would ever think you'd counterfeit a two dollar bill So if you just counterfeited all the two dollar bills. I think you'd be able to when you see a two dollar bill. You already think it's counterfeit just because it's so rare. Look there you go bill us carrots dollar bill around yeah. I think it's lucky. Yeah not sure. This might be fake hague member. When i tried to pitch mark cuban and i ask you to go into the bank to get me to bill and you came back. They don't have any a village. You just can't do it in clemson because clemson has that weird thing where their fans they bring two dollar bills with them wherever they go so they can demonstrate the impact of the clemson fans travelling to different college towns. Oh because there's been so many two dollar bill o. That's so that's terrible our bill jake. Z. find it. I'm not seeing a date. It's on a reported. Okay that's fine Cpi and what. What is she says. The cpi was at an estimated. Thirty six point eight back in nineteen sixty nine december. Twenty nineteen. The us cpi setter over to the six meaning. One thousand dollar. Bill beat equipment of a relatively modest hundred three dollar bill. Wait what i don't know. What does that mean what did you. That's i just wanted to know. If there's a thousand dollar bill up there is. It was in a friends episode. There we go. Billy the hundred thousand dollar. Bill has grover cleveland on it okay. Initially had hamilton. But then they're like hey might be confusing to have the same president onto different. Somebody works at a bank. Let us know about what type of bills you got working for. You don't tell us where your bank is but just let us know how many people are going to tweet has been like yo. Hamilton wasn't president trump. probably a lot. Yeah put he was sick rapper. Let's go to who's back the week. Who's back a week brought to you by cash apps. Speaking of money go download right. Now you don't even need dollar bills anymore but the cash app is there the cash app you can buy Bitcoin another reason why. You don't need a doubles. Guess what they make a fifty thousand dollars. Bitcoin that's what it's at right now. you can invest in the stock market can do it all at the cash app. You don't have cash your hand. You can link directly your bank account. It's super easy to use. Download the cash enter the referral code. Barstool you ten dollars for free ten dollars to spca and when you download that cash up you get both those and you also get the satisfaction that you helped podcast so donald the cash app from the app store. Google play store today. Hank who's back of the week. Mass and bumgarner. Yeah through no hitter so go no. He didn't know then. Hey i didn't know he didn't know it was seven inning game Not a no hitter doesn't count as no hitter. This is rob manfred. I really they should just let him keep going. Yes and if it if he throws if if someone gets hit off him in the middle of the eighth inning they descend the game weight. That's not a no hitter. Not no. I mean it's not it's seventy nine but they should what i'm saying you don't think no hitters if the game gets cancelled that no it's not no hit what he should have done. If you truly had presents amonte. He should just walked a bunch of players until the braves scored five runs taking the game to extra innings. Got it to nine and then accounts as if a doubleheader game goes to nine innings it does count as no hitter if you complete that Or he should have had his catcher. Drop a bunch of third strikes so that he could get twenty seven outs. more strikeouts. Twenty seven outs with No hitter yeah. I i really do next. Two innings should count like it should be a fun little quirk in baseball. They're going to do the seven inning. Doubleheaders it should be. If a player has a no hitter. A perfect game. The game goes till nine innings or when a for when it happens it happens they just the game right away right that i agree with that so fix it. How about the braves. Though today they got they got no headed asterix and then i think they had like a one hitter to hitter yet not braves not a good day for the brace. Good one hitter counts. What we recognize is the one who what do you mean. Major league baseball. Let's just say that goes down in the record books the one hitter but not a no hitter so that ball from the note from the no hitter asterix. Does that ball to cooperstown probably not. It's not a no hitter. i want. I need someone. I'm now asking a lot of the. Awol's we need to track down all the money that is on the money. Nora let them do it an assignment and then are there more one hitters than earlier less one hundred and no hitter. I think probably. Yeah someone find that. Because if you're like nolan ryan and you know that you have a no hitter and you're in a situation where you've got like a three one count you're gonna walk the guy as opposed to throwing a pitch that he might hit. What do you think. Hank got to be more science. Math one hitters. No it's complete game one hitter. Yeah there's more not sure on a percents man. No chance. I has to kill debutante.

I was at a bar the other day not to brag and they had a sick novelty drink and i think this summer. I'm going to soup if there's a novelty drink. That's on the menu. I'm going to order every single time. I'm talking like a punch bowl style thing or a margarita. That's got a beer upside down in it. I don't know what it is.

Coloring perfect perfect My who's back in the week is parenting because chatto cinco had One of the funniest exchanges with his daughter that i don't even think he realized i don't know it's hard to figure out with him because he's a very funny guy but i think he was dead serious so he posted a screenshot of his conversation with his daughter and his daughter said daddy and he said yes. Ma'am she said. Let me know when you go to token my mammy to get more shoes. Come with you. Because i want to get these than that they have and he said you gotta get a job. I worked at mcdonalds by edison to gain extra stuff i wanted in high school and she essentially says when i finished school. I'm getting one the old billy. Football answer and How can i get a job. When i have to do a high school and track and all these things and shadow tinkle replied. I caught the bus to school then. Went to football. Practice caught the bus to mcdonald's for a six hour shift all while maintaining a two point two. Gpa and being a star athlete. So i don't know if he was joking or not but that is such a hilarious flex like look how hard i worked and i fucking rocked nothing but like seas. I think it's even more impressive that he still remembers what his gpa was to visit to point to. If it's anything below three you could ask me what i got in college like somewhere between the two five hundred three someone. Someone replied very funny on twitter because everyone was two point two. Gpa was trending on twitter and so it was like dude. You don't maintain a two point two. That's not like trying to sell if you're trying to stay eligible for sports fucking grind grind. That's how knows what. His gpa was to stay above two point two. Oh man what's to point to the limit you think are. We know on tissue to probably the limit. I think. Know what you think. Two point two to seem minus so yes. Just stay above. D. wouldn't be be due to see depends on the system donated four zero three b to c one's a d. zero's enough but there's stuff like to be ap's and four point fives and stuff. I'll take that affects us. But i'm pretty sure to see it but it's more like if you get a you can have a four point five in it is into a seat or maybe two it depends on the system to as a c. c. minus. Now i'm starting now. Billy's getting in my head. It's standard it's to be. Yeah who's your little nervous there high school yet. Three four five her two point. Two men maintain that she's three now. That was some. there was some maintenance. Yes you had to go out and cut the grass every now and then to to billy. What's your who's back my who's back. The week is j rod for luke lopez. An era were seen going out to dinner in. La we mourn their break-up love. Oh no i think they're just being friends. Yeah yeah got vaccinated. No big deal mother. Whose back is monster trucks. Xs funeral had a sick monster truck and in a very somber moment. It was nice to see that diem. Xs rough riders. They're still radan. It was cool as hell so cool. Shout out my my my son who was probably one of the biggest fans out there because there was so much traffic in brooklyn yesterday that he puked all over himself in the car. Because it was stop-and-go so that was kind of like a one last like you know like for for poor out for. Yeah you just like this sucks. Were in the car. i missed him. Maximum over myself. Real quick remote draft livestreams are back. Are you just piling this on because you're trying to okay keep going keep going. Keep going remote drafts. Phillies that patty garbage can you. I've tried to get as many. Who's back have there. I know that not. Everything's gonna be a remote like it was last year but like remember like moments like the ceedee lamb phone taking back. The household was just ridiculous and bella. Check had a dog next one. My next this is fucking awesome. Thatched a drug dealer england. Whosever can pretending to be conor mcgregor and selling drugs be like i'm calling mcgregor. I'm actually selling drugs and trying to about this. Billy's fucking would. He's like paul. I've done i average one point seven five. Who's back in the weeks a week. And it's like then you break down his game log. He had fifteen in his last episode or gone. Oh come on you will. More full counts full crash. Well i see no. I said fans back the other week. Yeah so that was your whose back is back. Fans double-counted yeah fans similar sounding words. Yeah it was sick that the ufc fight like seeing all those fans and also soccer had some fans knockouts way cooler when their fans are if there's if there's no fans during a knockout it you kind of feel like a pervert watching it. Yeah but there's other people if you can see other people getting excited about violence you're like okay. I feel good about this. Everyone raging together. Think joe rogan does directions now for on purpose or do you think he's genuinely his brain is. The new. Tropics are just firing and insanely fast rate. Someone who's been in the ring ringside two which one was going viral. The thug rose one. Okay but the wiedeman kicked definitely deserved it like when he tried to to. I think the two reactions knockouts thug rose and they may be one he actually wants commented on like he understands the importance of video going viral. So that i think he like. I think he's definitely but i also think that that's just joe rogan stoked in his national natural environment true. Yeah it's like that and a guest talking about zombie dear disease. We'll get the exact same facial reactions absolutely or how many guns stockpiled and how much bison meat. He's been eating. it's the same level of stoke. Do you think that eventually we'll get to the point. Where joe rogan buys his own bison and he just eats it raw still alive That's like the ultimate amount of protein nibbles off of it. Yeah just because. I have to get close enough to bite it and then you have to get away and it's raw and the meat probably still has since it's still alive. It's probably faster twitching. Yeah that's true. We'll get there all right. Let's get to our interview todd mcshay. We'll talk some draft with todd.

Welcome on A very special guest. he's recurring guest friend of the program. it is todd. Mcshay him on draft night on thursday night. We're finally here draft week. Todd thank you for joining us. I i was just reading. Your latest. mock draft is there. I don't know the answer to this. And i feel like a fool. Is there a one final one. That's coming out right before the draft. Do we still have one more iteration. Yeah thank goodness although sometimes the second or third one better than the fifth in the last month so but yeah we do mellon. I do one the night. Before the draft so wednesday night will do it. And noah dot com espn dot com on thursday. Okay great in. Do you get credit. Like if you i would just take credit for any right answers. I had through the five or six. Mock drafts i did do you do that. I'd love to but no one. No one seems to care. But it's amazing this year especially with teams not being able to meet face to face with a lot of these prospects. Like i talked to three general managers today one head coach and one director of player personnel. I think is his title. And it's amazing. Just listening to all the scoop in the buzzed. They're getting and how different is from one team to the next. You know i could go through fifteen different scenarios just in the top ten alone in terms of what everyone's hearing we know. Travelers is going number one overall. We i know for a fact. Zack wilson is going number two or all of the jets. After that. it's going to get real interesting. Yes yes so. You have mac jones going number three to the forty niners. That's the one that it feels like the longer. Mack jones has gone without playing football. The higher he's climbed up the draft. Rankings here is there. do you think that's kind of what and has you think. He traded up to get mack jones or is it a possibility that are you being smokescreen right now. I'm always worried about it. But but what. I'm told is and from from people that i really trust in the league. Is that the personnel department would would like to take trae lance from north dakota state but kyle shanahan had coach wants to take mack jones. So how do you. How do you pick if you're a personnel department. And you've got a head coach who who's a quarterback guru and an offense of mind. How do you pick against what he wants i. I just don't see that happening. So that's going to be interesting to see if they if they want to go on with with lance. But i do i would. I would bet money on mack. Jones going three and then four. Everyone thinks that atlanta's taking a quarterback and and who knows maybe they'll surprise me. But i've talked to another really reliable source that thinks they're gonna take kyle pits too tight end from from florida so it could be quarterback quarterback quarterback for the first three picks and then kits. The tight end could come off the board at number four to atlanta if atlanta doesn't move out of that number four spot and and if they do take pits at four then the big question is because you got five quarterbacks and lance in this scenario would be available and just fields from ohio state would be available and now you're looking down miami's not going to take a quarterback cincinnati. I should say at five is not taken a quarterback. Miami's not and then you get to detroit seven. They're they're not going to. They're going to take a wide receiver or a linebacker as sewell though oregon offensive tackle and then the next team on the board that. I'm told that there's a chance that could take a quarterback is carolina at number eight. That could be the big surprise in the first round interest is yeah i mean you you you trade for sam darnold you kinda got your guy. They lost eight games by one score and talking to their coaching staff. Everyone i talked to him. That staff said you have in the fourth quarter. We could have won four or five of those games that we lost So why do you bring in another quarterback but you got sam darnold for for just five five million dollars next year in only on a two year deal so it might be ownership saying. Hey what's make sure that were covered for the next ten years rather than just worrying about next year so i wanna go back to what you just said about cow shan a question that popped in my head. How many and you don't have to name names. But how many teams in the nfl does the. The coach have kinda defacto final. Say when it comes to who they're going to draft more so than the personnel department and maybe even more so than the gm that's a good question and not many teams would would be public about it. I would say less than ten definitely. I mean bella. Check certainly in new england right. He runs the whole the whole show in this is this is just case specific. John lynch in in that personnel staff. They're going they're gonna make all the other picks right but kyle because he's such an offensive guy. How do you draft a guy a quarterback. That's not what your head coach wants right. You know. I think that's kind of where the the tug and pull is in terms of cr- just figuring out what's best for the organization. So there's i mean and then you have any time. It's a quarterback especially in the top ten ownership is always involved. You've gotta get you gotta get the green light from the owner so it's always. It's always interesting but again like you get the three teams at the top taking quarterbacks and then you've got carolina who the i'm told the owner who's the progressive owner. He's got a ton of money. He wants to bring in another quarterback just to make sure that their sets for the next several years and then after that nine denver. Nobody knows what denver wants to do. They're going to stick with drew. Lock or they gonna take the quarterback that that spot and then the the wild card is. Is there a team trying to trade up. You know justin fields falls too. You know if he gets to seven. Is there a team like new england. And i don't think it's going to be new england based on on my sources i think knowing was more likely to trade back than they are to move up But could it be chicago at twenty trying to make a big move trying to go up to date justin field. So that's going to be the most interesting part of the draft. I think is is when we get down to the final one or two quarterbacks and you get past atlanta is they're going to be movement we typically see a lot of movement. I the chicago thing. Obvious is interesting Because i do think that they are in a spot and you see it all the time with the front front office in a coach. They're on borrowed time so really the only way they get out of. This is andy. Dalton gets into the playoffs or they draft a guy who shows a little bit of something at the back half of the season and then they can so like. That's our guy we got our guy so do you. I always assumed they would just get someone in the second round. You think that they could potentially try to trade up someone false. I think they could try to. But they're they've been stuck in this middle ground in in free agency and in the draft. You know you're when you're picking twenty you have to give up. You're talking about three ones and and more change to go up to seven. Let's say and get ahead of carolina to go get a quarterback and if you have ownership that's not convinced that this is. This is our gm moving forward. Are you going to allow this guy to make a move. That's going to leverage your your organization for the next several years. That's the that's where. I think they're in a tough spot. Yes i my guess is that we're gonna see the quarterbacks. Come off the board all five by nine. I think carolina's gonna play. I think denver could be in play. I don't see another team. Washington at nineteen to try. Move up but again you're giving away so much and they have a good football team And it'll be interesting. You know. I i. i don't know how it all lays out. But i do know where all these teams are kind of kind of leaning in terms of where they want to go but the which team is going to be the one that makes them move up the board. And if you don't get a guy. In the first round as you mentioned there are three guys that i think are going to be drafted in the second round davis mills from stanford who started just eleven games but was a five star recruit. I think he was the number one recruit coming out of college. I talked to david. Shaw a couple of years ago. And he's like we'll never have another andrew luck but he's the closest thing that we've had since and maybe we'll ever have in terms of physical tools and there are a lot of teams that are intrigued by him. I'm told washington chicago. And new england all have interest in him in the second round. Then kellyanne mon. From texas a and m. who's a four year starter very inconsistent but wanted big arm mobile big physical dude. I got better in terms of decision making and his accuracy this past year and then kyle. Trask is another guy. I actually heard a rumor today. Talk into a gm that tampa bay could be interested in bringing him in late in the first round So you know vegas set it at five and a half and i kind of laughed at that. There's no way. There's going to be a six quarterback but vegas vegas is always smarter than me so yeah Yeah he's may. maybe trask. Is that guy that sneaks into the late first round and it seems like every year we see a guy or whether it's twenty eight twenty nine thirty thirty one thirty two. The team is willing to move out and get good. Compensation and a team is afraid to go to bed that night after the first night of the draft without the quarterback that they really want right they start to. It was like that one year was a two thousand eleven. Where you had jake locker and and all those guys go in a row so do you think if off five quarterbacks get taken like in the top ten top eleven there's besides the patriots. What would be a team that you would think might panic. And and and chaka's by moving up to take on either. Trask or any of the other guys that you mentioned. I think those teams i just i just mentioned i think i think washington especially with the love that i'm hearing about you know what they think mills can be and how they develop him. I think new england's intriguing. I mean what. I can never get bill. Bell checks draft right. So don't even ask me but if you spend all this money in the off season and you bring back cam newton on a short term deal for backup money basically at the quarterback position. And you've you've kind of solidified. I know they still up needs. But you've solidified tight end. Certainly you brought in some receivers. Some semaj guys. They spent more money. I believe and i got a double check. This but i think they spent more money in free agency than any team in the history of the nfl. Yeah and they took. They took advantage of having a ton of cap space in a year. Where you know. The money in the cap went Went down in terms of what you could spend so you're an spa perfect spot to try to go solidify that quarterback position for the next several years but it has not been bill. Bella checks ammo over the last several years. But why would it be. That's i keep going back and forth on this. Because if i had tom brady for twenty years i wouldn't wanna spend a first round pick on a quarterback i would want to bring in guys like Jacoby perset and you know jarrett stidham and all the other guys that they brought in the second to fifth round but but this is the year. it seems like they're pressing their finally had off season without the playoffs. They've self evaluated. They know they. They don't have brady to make up for all the sins that the every other position has had on that roster and so they realized that they've got to get better and they did it. But now you need a quarterback for your future unless you're just convinced that cam newton can be your guide for the next two three years and then the other team again is chicago so i think chicago. I think it's washington fifty one. I'll double check your washing yes. Washington's fifty one chicago's fifty two and then if denver doesn't go quarterback in the first round nine they're studying at forty so those are the teams that i think are going to be the most likely to be the movers on on on the in the second round and then new england as well picking it forty six and round. We're going to get back to todd. Mcshane a second before we do coors light has a special announcement. What do you do when you need a moment to chill. Do you ever always feel like you're on.

And now. we're todd mcshay so i. I know that you have trevor lawrence as you said the best quarterback prospect that you've seen in nearly a decade parison to andrew lock. My guess is probably luck would be the other guy that would be. Maybe a little bit above him. Yes the second highest grade given to a quarterback since andrew luck. I'm not gonna ask you if you think he loves football. Because i feel like that conversation has been but i will ask you. Are you concerned that his hair's too long because longhaired quarterbacks don't win super bowls didn't brady know he lost that year. It's basically think the only one and he was like a little shaggy. I wouldn't call it. Yeah i mean some are talking about next size being the key indicator as i. Actually i would not take a quarterback that has hair as long his mind. I think like. I wouldn't draft myself. I'll be like this. Dirty hippie would never draft you. that's why you're the best now. He's he's he's an interesting cap man. He's he's so down to earth think about what he went through the offseason with all the social injustice taking over leadership on that as as a white quarterback right and being the leader of his team and kind of you know just focusing on what was important to his teammates and then with covid and and he didn't have to play either he could have and would have been the number one overall pick but he came back and he battled and and they they had another really good run. He's thirty eight to a starter. I've done nine games. The last three years as a sideline analyst is. I guess what they call me And i stopped him on the sideline almost weird. He probably should've gone to court to get me out of the stadium. But i just wanted to see how he reacted and he was always so steady and i love that about him. Now he's he's he's gonna have to develop from offense that that is not an nfl scheme if you will In there's there's a couple of small things that he's going to have to improve upon but this dude is is everything you want the position because he he has the poise. He has the leadership. And then obviously all the physical tools. It doesn't take the super scouts. Figure out that that this guy who's sick six five and a half two hundred and fifteen pounds with a rifle arm and the mobility that he has is physically talented enough to be a star in the league. But i just. I love the way. He carries himself so so along that line. I do love that. You are lot these games. Because i do think that there's something you can pick up from being at a game especially being on the sideline that you can't pick up on film who's the guy that you have seen on the sideline and how they interact with their teammates or how locked in they are or he just that dude who maybe not doesn't doesn't show it on the film but you know that's a guy who like will translate the nfl. I mean i see it on the film but devante. Smith's has been the most fun guy to watch the last two years in college. Football is honestly i would. If anyone who loves football. I could bring them down on the field and have them stand six feet away from from devante smith and jalen waddell and the year before henry ruggs and and jerry jeudy and to listen to those four. The there's there's an offensive bench. Right the offensive lineman. Sit on the bench the quarterbacks they're around and then and then some of the other position guys pull up chairs and kinda circle around the coordinator comes in the offensive line. Coach comes in what they're always sitting on this back and they come off the field and they chirp at each other. I mean they get in each other's face and then they go over to steve sarkissian. Who was the offensive coordinator at alabama and start yelling at him like. Hey they're showing they're showing cover tube that turns into quarters coverage in their football intelligence and their competitiveness. I've never seen and i've been doing this for nine years. I think being on the field and and just listening to coaches and players. And all that i have never seen anything like it and i talked to to to sark about about devante specifically because i mean he's one hundred and seventy pounds. Yeah right so yeah. He's he's he's sold lean. He doesn't look the part. And i i. I see what i see on tape. He's silky smooth and he knows how to separate and all that. But i asked sark like what do you. What do you see from him. Practice and in games that you can't actually see on tape. And the thing that he said was. I've never had a receiver in all my years of coaching. And you think about where he's been your in the nfl usc etc. I've never had a receiver. Come over in the sideline and give me as much or more information than i got from a quarterback in terms of the recall of what he saw what they're trying to do how we can leverage it and so on and so forth so and that's what makes him special. Yeah that's a great answer. And that's also like he's one of those guys that if you watched the game you're like how is he not going to be a top ten pick and then the size thing dings and everyone's like well you know hundred sixty six pounds and but i i saw this is like this is the lightest wide receiver class. I think of all time. All these guys are kind of smaller. And i think that's probably more where the nfl's going in terms of not being able to hit guys the same way. Yeah and they're all they're all running for twos and four threes right and you know whether whether you you can't compare these numbers to what the combine numbers would be because there. You don't know ohio state. I've been convinced for twenty years of doing this job that they were run. A thirty eight yard forty. Thank you terry. You tad's we new jeremiah about this last week It's my theory that some some colleges they shorten up specific section other practice fields. So you they're field turf. There permanently marked with the yard markers. My theory is that they have a specific section. That's less than forty yards. The hashes are a little bit closer together. The yard markers are a little bit closer together just so that when they do a pro day they can get away with running thirty eight yard dash instead of a forty one and jeremiah was like no because the scouts measure it before they they bring out the tape and they measure it. I i always say jokingly but what is different though is and you see it at the combine to a you know. Have you ever watched the nfl network at the combine. Yeah and it comes out and it'll say like you know. Johnny smith ran a a four three one in. Everyone loses their mind and then later in the day the official numbers come out from the from the t the actual timing yet at the the electronic. And it's a four or four nine so that's the difference that people just get trigger happy with their thumbs or with their their index finger. Working working to stop watch but but anyway the to your point. This year's class is yes. It's lean and it's not a it's not a ton of perimeter guys but the speed and then the amount of slot receivers that bring versatility. Tamar chases is unique and at the end of the season i get devante is going to be the number one pick and he number one wide receiver off the board. Because he's he. Just he's coming off the best season that i've ever seen and maybe in the history of college football single season for a wide receiver won. The heisman. did what he had to do. And they they lost jalen wattelet alabama and he he just kinda took over but then i went back to twenty nineteen and watched mark chase set as in. Sec records at at wide receiver with justin jefferson. Who i think. He had eight catches for minnesota's past year as a as a rookie and and just he was the guy. and he he's just so physical and dominant in terms of getting off. Press in separating after the catch but then you get devante smith throughs undersized but explosive you've got jalen waddell who's a again a slot receiver that you can move around and do a bunch of different things with and i think he's the most explosive player in this draft when you put the ball in his hands and give him a. He doesn't even need a little space but once he has it in his hands but then just going down the line. Elisha more the wide receiver from ole miss. Oh know overlooked. Because he he didn't play for a great team but he he's the fourth best receiver in this class. Yeah and then you get canaries. Tony from from florida. Rahmael more rondell. More from from purdue from louisville. I mean we had Was fourteen fourteen receivers taken in the first two rounds last year it may thirteen. I think we can have fourteen or fifteen again this year. I mean that's how that's how good this group is Who's the biggest but guy in this draft and before you answer you're going to get caught so i'm going to explain the question when nick sabin was saying that you have butts you've got hands and you wanna be an and guy so when you're when a coach is getting a call from a professional team leading up to the draft. You say he can do this and he can do that because the stuff that comes after the but if you say he can do this but that's when you start to get dinged who is the guy that has like the biggest but in terms of like high upside but watch out for this one big weakness in his game. I'm glad you explained that. Because i i start to look at my list of players and trying to think of the the biggest assets in this class you can do. It might be the same guy. Because i don't know maybe maybe going to say he's assets too big and that's the to answer your original question. I'm going to go with jason joa from the the edge. Rusher from penn state. I mean this guy. He ran a four three eight at his pro day. He's two hundred and fifty five pounds and he has all the physical tools that you look for. But he didn't have a sack he didn't have a sack last year. I mean it's it's it's hard and he had a lot of pressures and you can look up you know the numbers in terms of pressures and hits and all these different things. But he didn't get home. And if i'm gonna draft a guy in the first round and i i love the traits and i love the physical tools. But jason alway from from penn state to me is is one of the hardest evaluation simply. Because if you can't get a sack is an edge rusher. Then what are we doing here. Yeah but new sack that is. That's big what. Here's another. But i want to throw out to Trae lance obviously people love him but he's only played one season. So how do you evaluate that like how do you. How do you sit there. And like he's only played one season. I don't want to bring up bad memories. But the last guy who only played one season mr bisky. It didn't work out that well because he only had one season to look at and be like. Here's how he does against this competition. Yeah it's tough man. I mean trubisky. Mark sanchez is another one. That if you study the history of the quarterback position in the draft one of the greatest correlations between being drafted and having success in the nfl is starts. Which sounds crazy right. But you're i mean are they've kind of changed with the transfer portal with obviously this past year with with kovin in some of the limitations. It wasn't his fault that he had no if they if they played ten games he would've played ten games right they. They played one but the biggest problem is he started. Seventeen games at the f. c. s. level. Then you watch the tape though and you see a guy who's accuracy needs to improve that he has everything else that you look for. In terms of the size the competitiveness the leadership the toughness the mobility extending plays the ability to drive the ball down the field vertically. So i just. I would love for his sake. I would love to see trae lance wind up in either san francisco or even better atlanta and i don't i don't think atlanta's gonna take him but the reason i say that is exactly to your point. He needs time in a patrick. Mahomes came in league in his mechanics. Were a mess. He he came from a scheme. That air raid offense that that really didn't translate especially at the time and he came in. And i did the chiefs games for For two or three years. The preseason games and i remember sitting down and talking to him he's like taught. I gotta be honest with you. I i didn't know how to identify the mike linebacker. I it was nothing. It was something i had never had to do in my career. And that's one of the simplest things you learned that in high school. There's the middle linebacker and that helped to set protection for the offensive line and so on and so forth. So he's like if. I didn't have this first year to sit back and have a quarterback in alex smith was willing to actually work with me and talk to me about how to be a pro and what to look for in the coverages and all those things and didn't have andy reid in this coaching staff. I i wouldn't be where i am now and now you can make the argument that he's the best player in the nfl. Where did you have patrick. Mahomes in that draft way too. Well don't bring it up. I mean that's that's why you brought that up late in the first round. He he was in. And i set it up the time. I said a bunch of times. He was the toughest quarterback i've ever had to evaluate. Because here's what happens so you sit down and especially with the quarterback would normally with other positional players watch six seven games throughout the course of a year and then in the draft process with quarterbacks you have to watch basically every game unless it's against an opponent doesn't matter and so i i sat there and i was so worried about. His footwork. was off time you went to throw. He was it looked like a shortstop or throwing underhand. His he was he his feet were. Were so far away from what you want mechanically but then i would look down on my notes and be like completion completion. A perfect ball placement. And i just i. I didn't know how to process that at the time because he did everything wrong before the ball got to the wide receiver but the end result was always there and then he got with a in a situation where he had time to develop his footwork and get his timing right and to get away from that air-raid system but getting the system where they kind of adapted to what he wanted to be. It's just all worked out perfectly in throwing all the weapons of the as. Obviously but yeah. I'm not making excuses. i'm just explaining the process. The process was brutal with him. Because i saw the talent. But i didn't know what to do with it. I liked that spins on though. Your evaluation was correct and then after the first year if had re entered the draft. After years sitting behind alex smith you would have him first overall right of course done and and my evaluation was incorrect Brett visas the gm of kansas city. His his was correct and apparently and i talked to him about this. And andy reid and Couple of other people in on their staff. Apparently brett had basically decided. We're taking this guy when he's eligible next year. It was the year before. I forget the year that he was drafted. It was what four or five years ago but it was the year before his final season college when he he walked into. Andy's offices like this is this is going to be our guy. We gotta get this guy. And that's why they made that big move to go up and get him crazy So my last question do you ever. This might be a stupid question. Do you ever think that some of the front offices are cheating off your work. Like do they call you and then you give them your evaluation and then you're like wait. I think they took that guy because of me. That'd be a pretty cool thing right now. They definitely don't the only thing they do they. It's funny because i i don't i. I have friends in the league and we talk. We talk about like family vacations or what's going on. How how is it on the road and stuff like that. We don't really start talking about where guys are going until about ten days before. And that's why i have spent more time on the phone the last four or five days with guys in the league then than i have probably in the last four or five months because they they're all trying to figure out what i'm hearing and where guys are projected to go and they're taking that information. I'm sure they're calling kuyper and daniel jeremiah. And then they're calling other guys in the league steve. Aj exactly they want to get all the information they can get to try to figure out. Okay if if we're going to move out of this spot if we're gonna try to trade up to go get a guy or can we. Can we hang it. Pick eight or nine or whatever it is or should we move back because we can still get that guy and pick up an additional pick. That's that's that's probably the biggest thing In terms of my conversations with guys in the league and how they could utilize that information. And i gotta be careful. I never talk specifics. In terms of players and i protect every all everything that you know everything. I'm hearing in terms of teams told me we want this guy but but You know even today. I told her a certain team that i talked to another team. And that you might want to reach out to to this other team Because if if it gets too if there's a certain player and i didn't say the player but if there's a certain player there they may want to move up and so you should probably have some dialogue with them. I'm trying to. I'm trying to do the math. Real quick the falcons the dolphins and ian book exactly okay crushing round three. I've got Just one last thing. We love all the lingo and all the scout talk that goes into the draft all the different like because almost talk in a secret language sometimes and we can pick up on like a new phrase. That's coming out and get ahead of that. We like to feel smart or learning like any deep scout terms that you guys use to describe players that maybe just keep to yourself and you haven't put out there in the media. Don't say publicly some just basically a coup phrase that we can steal from your about a player How I don't know. I think i've used this on air but you. You probably haven't heard it put my i. I find myself using this all the time now when i'm talking about defensive backs to their smooth. They have oily hips or greasy hips. One of the two. You know just it when you see you can just kinda see how when you compare the oil league guys versus the stiff guys. It's so obvious to see on tape. And that's the best way. I can describe greasy or oily. Just you know so smooth that. They're they're not laboring and then and then with offensive. Linemen that really struggle and defensive lineman to that struggle to redirect. I always call it. The titanic and it's like good luck turning that thing yeah. I liked that. We'll talk or thank you so much we appreciate it Good luck on thursday night. don't share. Don't giving mel shit about being a weirdo with his pizza and his pumpkin pie potatoes know what kind of animal. What kind of animal goes to the hotel room. Single night after after doing shows orders a pizza and takes the cheese off. I what are we. What are we doing and then and then gets a a side of mashed potatoes and slaps the mashed potatoes on top and and uses that as as the cheats. He's he's lost. You've lost eighty percent of the sox boss all of the cheese. And now you're you're double car bloating on on on you know crust and mashed potatoes. He's gonna live to like a thousand though he's going to have you beat me to it was just gonna say and and and then he wakes up and has pumpkin pie every morning and thinks that he's having something healthy because he has the fat three whip cream and he's gonna wind up He's gonna outlive me by thirty years. We have to have him do a pizza. If you with dave yeah it would be so funny. Walked out and they would lose yes to and he just walked out rips. A cheese often mashed potatoes. And dave what. Are you doing that. Honestly i would watch it and laugh my house. Oh my god. I mean semillas credit you did. You did really botched the pumpkin pie. A couple years ago on went back. Check the tape. i've studied it doesn't live lice spray. Eat like individual. Bytes get individual dobson whipped cream on him right and you just put the whipped cream on the entire pie at once. I was trying. I was trying to do right by. But i know that was that was one of my biggest draft fails man. I'm todd take so much man. We look forward to Draft night on thursday. Or i fell.

That's the big king kong godzilla and even put it in there. That just came out. I know but the house your house that not a mortal combat they should just known that it was gonna come. Oscars is usually like march madness. Yeah right isn't it like late february this one. Just i thought it already happened. They switched the oscars and the draft this year. And then i have been last week. Oscars next week and i just out to the To the main part of the office. In jeff loan. Ken jack had like station. Yeah it looked like they were landing. Elon musk fucking rock. The command center. It look like that guy that was landing the expedition over whatever on mars from his house. Yeah i was like what is going on here on screen. Didn't that happen. Usually nineteen oscars were in february or tort february. Twenty four twenty nine. Yes so it's always in february. So what the fuck why are they still. The oscars still lagging from covid gearshift together. Oscars i bet you movie studios had to shut down for an entire year. Yeah this year. There's going to be like no movies out. If you wanna get a movie nominated for an oscar boehner dogs dogs eat pray chug he pray chug doing tell billy got his chug back. I love it. You should do it. yeah that surprised me all right. We should do We gotta monday reading so monday reading. This one is a lot about the picture of this guy in the orlando sentinel. The reading is disney world but woke kness is ruining the experience so this is by jonathan van. Boer van sick named john. I think i'm gonna actually agree with this guy eventually. I mean if you look at the picture of him. I don't think that you're going to be able to match his disney knowledge so he has a picture and it's off centered but behind. Him is a bunch of like disney figurines. I don't even know what you call them. What what do you call a doll. You're an adult they're collectibles. I think. I think there's collectibles. Yeah investment investment. Yeah 'cause you know what. I'm saying like kids can have dolls. Adults have mannequins mannequins decorated your e. Do ask chef de la. Oh yeah that's true. He does have a lot of segye. Sagittarians sex dolls. And such all. Right here we go. My fame and i've been loyal disney customers for decades. We vacation at disneyworld. every year. we take a disney cruise every year or two. Consequently we spend way too much money in orlando so this is right off the bat. This guy's dedicated And disney people are freaks. I don't like the fact that he is acknowledging that he has a problem though yes seems like a little bit too aware of the fact that he does spend too much time thinking about disney disney cruises. That's i get why you'd want to go to disneyworld or disneyland occasionally but to be trapped on a boat with other adult disney fan. That's like hell is other people. Hell is other standards of the jungle. Book yes i. I'm doing the math though here. How fucking lit or the years where he goes double dipping because he said we take a disney. We re vacation at disneyworld. Every year we take a disney cruise every year or two so there are years where he's double dipping in. It's like a nonstop wonderland. Yeah disney disney's disneyland. Disneyworld the most magical place on earth one is which do you call orlando land is california got it. I have never. I've haven't been either. I was that kid who didn't go to either Unfortunately i am strongly rethinking our commitment to disney and thus orlando. This is now. We're talking about now. We're talking about some fucking dollars in orlando's pockets. How much money do you think this guy drops in orlando and giving you a shitload. Probably i'd say five figs mid five fits. I think it probably hersher. The more disney moves away from the values and vision of walt disney. Less disneyworld means to me. Disney is forgetting the guest. Immersion is at the core. that's a buzzword. By the way we come back up guest. Immersion is at the core of its business model when i stand in galaxy's edge or fantasy land. I know i'm in a theme park but through immersion in my willingness to set the real world aside something magical happens. The spell is broken when the immersive experience is shattered by the real world and boy has disney. Been breaking that immersion. So he's he finds himself in disneyland frequently or disneyworld frequently and just pointing out. Hey this isn't right this. This is not what walt disney had in mind wrote several of his biographies right. Like why does mickey mouse have a hearing aid. Why weight wise. Mickey mouse not an actual mouse right exactly. Why is mickey mouse. Have ten tennis school in his pocket. Wise mickey mouse wearing pants. And donald duck isn't can see donald duck's penis good question. I also think there's a there's a ten percent chance guy just learned the word immersion was like i'm going to use this on a piece. I don't i don't like the vibe that he gives in the picture because it almost seems like he's going for a jimmy buffett parrot head type vibe right. He's wearing a hawaiian shirt. I don't think adult disney fans are hawaiian shirt type guys. Yeah if they are then. I might have to reconsider my stance on the calm one. I this also you know. Maybe i'm way off and i'm sure we'll piss awesome disney people but isn't it for kids. Yeah okay yeah Immersion immersion is just being a child. Like this is. This is apart for kids. This guy just wants to again children. Yeah are your whole life is emerging. Yes everything is fantastic. Has probably amazing. Aren't sports just a kids game. Shut up hank not no different. No the players care as much as i do. Yeah they yes hang. It's real life. They're playing the gains rule to me. It's absolutely real bad. Analogy bad bad wasn't now question. Immersion shattuck fight a hammer. I'd hammer over your head like you're a cartoon trump an envoy on your a jumping piano on your head if you walk by me right now sorry questions. Recently disney announced that cast members are now permitted to display tattoos where inclusive uniforms and display inclusive haircuts. Disney did all this in the name of allowing cast members to express themselves. Now is where. I kind of actually with them. I'm starting to turn here right. I i don't wanna see like ariel. If snoopy's got snoopy's definitely disney is he. No what is a toy story. We're talking about pluto pluto if pluto's gotta goofy goofy. He's got a fucking like scorpion tattoo on his arm. I'm gonna be pissed. I kinda love that honestly as an adult. I would love to see goofy walking around like carrying a openly carrying a knife on his hip has it has a barbed wire tattoo and just chain smoking. I think i'm on this. I think on. Johnny boys side here right here. We go the problem is. I'm not traveling across the country in paying thousands of dollars to watch someone. I do not know express. Themselves i am there for the immersion in the fantasy. Not the reality of a stranger self expression. I do not begrudge these people their individuality. And i wish them well in their personal lives. But i do not get to express my individuality in my place of business i there. I don't think jonathan. Jonathan really gonna tell us that he's never gone to work in a disney shirt. That's a good thing to tell me that. He doesn't have disney dolls at his desk. Almaz row flag on that one johnny boy also if you work at like target are you expected to immerse yourself in being a target employees when you when you walk into the store. Are you just eat sleeping. You're acting out just like entire mission statement of target. Yeah all the time. Yes or Best buy the geek squad that is true. They're definitely nurse. Yeah they all have to be immersed on nerd. You know what the more i think about it. The more i do like going to places where there's immersion. Yes no. it's kind of on his side. But i do want to say you're a hypocrite. Because if you're an adult disney fanatic. There's zero percent chance you're not an adult disney fanatic at your place of work as well. Everybody knows like not to pick on. Jeff t low. He's got a bunch of dolls on his desk. I love it. And i think it's his individuality. I think that we're at a place where you can expression to visually but if jeff de low was An accountant at one of the big three big four pick three Big three big three disowns an accountant at the big three. He would definitely have a couple. You know what are those things called tours dunk. Oh jesus christ this is. i'm. I'm out of my depth here. I don't know what any of this shit is called. We inorganic lovers. That's about sex dolls. What's next is he going to end. The rule bearing onstage cell phone use by cast members is an infringement on self expression. Good point is slow whenever somebody starts a sentence with. What's next you can be sure that the fiery takes from the depth of hell inside their brainer coming down. Yes it's like. i'm going to get weird with. He's saying that if you let them have a tattoo they're going to be calling their drug dealer on that age. I'm finding out quickly. That i know nothing about disney. Because i'm i'm struggling to figure out. Is aladdin disneyland lands disney. Oh so its beauty and the beast aladdin white snow white little mermaid. Alright lion king. Good all right i got. I'm on disney more. Broadly like many corporations dizzy has been politicizing. Its business full disclosure. I'm a christian conservative republican. So the people who run disney. And i do not see eye to eye. I actually appreciate that. He's just saying. Hey look i know they think differently than me. All right regard. I do like that. I like the fact that Until they took away his immersion. You can still do business with people that you don't agree on everything because your net spoiler alert. You're never going to completely agree with anybody about anything. Ever right i. They came for for jonathan's immersion. And i said nothing. Yes that's that's a problem. All right regardless corporations have always been politically motivated decisions usually due to the desire to make a profit but sometimes it is due to the values of the people in the corporation. Walt disney use his corporation to express his patriotism during world war two and his pro capitalism beliefs afterward. The difference today is that the people who run disney our social media use social media to scream to the whole world that a decision has been made for political reasons disney's in the process of taking the woke scalpel to the jungle cruise trader. That's not a sentence. No no scalpels trader. Sam is out because he might offend certain people every grownup in the room realizes that traders sam who is. Let's google trader. Sandra traders seems like a yonezawa. This were maybe. He is in the business of relocating people. So he's asleep trader. That's yeah. I would say that's fair to to pull that one Let me see. I'm trying to find a picture trader. Sam he's from the jungle cruise. He's from the jungle. Oh okay yeah traders. Yeah no traders in those pretty good call. Good call by disney. I'm going to side with disney on that. One traders is every grownup in the room. Realizes that traders. Sam is not a representation of reality in his mentors. A funny and silly character again. I think for the kids. yeah i think. I don't think the grownups wasn't wasn't walt. Disney wasn't into like eugenics i think she was a low key good So worst kind. He's essentially asking for immersion into a more racist time. Yeah but it's immersion. It is no more based on racism then every disney character of an out of touch white american dad. Yes now that rules. That rules what he did. Because you make the fucking white american dad's fat and that's not cool. Most of us are fat. Not all of us The next time i ride jungle cruise. I will not be thinking about the gloriously entertaining. Punds of the skipper. I will be thinking about disney's political agenda. That's a mood killer. I'm gonna agree. I'm going back and forth here. But if you can enjoy this puns by the skipper. He you're right. You're you've been immersion has been broken and i. I bet that he's probably heard the exact same puns probably hundreds of times. Yeah funny but still when you're immersed them and yeah the puns. You're genuinely excited by him. I appreciate good writing. Yes all right. Disney proclaims that splash mountain must change because of his association with song of the south. Disney owned splash mountain mountain. So it can do what it wants. But if disney screams at the top of its corporate voice which is pretty loud that it is changing it to a piece of certain political point of view now. Every time i look at the ride. I'm thinking about politics. I think that's a problem dude. I you like looking at a ride. Well it's you problem that you're going to disney as an adult. I don't even office guy as kids if you make anything that important in your life. You're going to be disappointed by something very much. So yeah this guy we need to get a a baseline of what politics is correct. People just say like this is politics about anything. They disagree with all right so he goes on to say paris. Used to be one of my favorite attractions. My family does that family. Okay would always right. It's like it's he is wife and Like five dolls right markle's up. My family would always ride it. I on her first magic kingdom. Now we do not even ride it every trip so he's kind of he's still doing. It's not every time when my family rides pirates now each of the change scenes takes us out of the illusion because they remind us of reality in the politics of force the change. It's always like. Hey where's that thing. Oh fuck immersion. Broken like how come uncle remus doesn't work in the character breakfast anymore. Bringing me my orange suit he really needs to like it. Just take a break from disneyworld. He's he's his burns out. He's a memorized the shit too much. Yeah that's the problem is like if you can notice the slightest change in a theme park maybe go too much. So i think at some point for most people when they were if they were experiencing these rides the level of like. Oh i don't believe the immersion anymore. Maybe after the second time or third time because you start to learn the routine yeah and it's not exciting anymore. This guy just has an insanely high tolerance for repetition immersion right. There's a part of his brain. That doesn't get bored with repetition until like fifty or sixty times through and even then still not fully So he ends up with. Disney world is going to lose us as customers if it continues down the path. I do not want to have disneyworld taken away from us because disney cares more about politics than happy guests. The parks are less fun because immersion and thus the joys taking a backseat politics in the. Please return to the values of envision of walt. The customer experience should be the core of your business. Model emerging should not be sacrificed on the altar of political correctness and appeasing the twitter mob. I actually think this guy might rule. So i like to think he might rule. I think i might be a fan of anyone. Who's that passionate. I'm thinking i don't care about it all. That's i like his brain. I think the fact that he spends this much time thinking about disney is weird but also kind of cool. Because i don't know it's just cool to be that excited about anything. It's school have people that care more about a company's product than the actual company discouraged people are fascinated me now. there was a counterpoint. A rebuttal was published in the same newspaper. The orlando sentinel by cody vince. A tory his article. I also love disneyworld. And here's why wo- kness critic is wrong. And he wrote a response letter now fact checking the grooming standards and things like that where he was like they won't they won't fire somebody if they have a small tattoo. He's downplaying the immersion. I think this guy understands the concept of emerge. We might have to take a trip to the judge ourselves to get immersed and figure out how far this immersion goes or or stops. I i just love anyone who this passion about anything. Yup fucking wrote. He not only spends mid five gigs on disney. Every year he wrote a fucking commentary article being like they're about to lose those mid five figures So so the. The crux of the response one is just saying like if you can't deal with organizations that treat cast members basic human decency and respect. We don't want vacation dollars. So like i don't think he has. The authorities say that on behalf of no deaf disney. He definitely doesn't you don't know you can't put words into walt disney's cryogenically frozen head. They should also just any changes. You just make without announcing it. 'cause then the emergency israel right like don't say we let people have tattoos now. Just let it happen and then the immersion is broken. I was i think that's probably as this guy. Jonathan he has alerts on. Google alerts for any change at disney. So every time there's a change whether he's there or not the emergent is broken and now once you break his immersion and over and over the guys have broken man. I think what it comes down to is that this guy just longs for when he was a child. Yeah mrs being a kid which again. It's a kid. And so anything that changes. It takes them out of that feeling. He had the first time. He saw areas c. show brown. It's like people who still think that the dallas cowboys are great. Because they want super bowls in the ninety s and anytime something changes with the team it shatters that emerged. Yes please you still keep going and paying money. Yeah what do you mean. Jerry is not the best I last last homework assignment for the listeners. I would love to hear from a fully immersed disney fan and let us know if it is true. The immersion has been broken. Yeah do you think this guy rules like on just the base level. Take all politics out. I just think his life weirdly rules because he's like able to get excited about shit. I love weirdos that are passionate about things show their fascinating i would. I'd also like to hear from somebody who works at disney who is a character that takes pride in the immersion when you can tell if somebody's in a current state of being immersed and the show to keep it stay in the mercy immersion. Yeah right we'll just do a show where it's like gaston. Right just talking shifted guy right. He's like yeah. Yeah slapped me in the face daddy. Yeah okay all right. So it's a lot of homework out there Good show guys degrade me. That's what i meant to say. Yeah degrade me cousin. What are we gonna say. Billy we'll could. Like gaston have like a controversial tattoo So it'd be controversial buxton. Let's say he was like a. He's a member of the bourgeoisie. Yeah he's bourgeoisie true. I don't know yeah. Also you get so jacked. Exactly there were no gyms it will be funny disney went over the top with inclusiveness and they let scrawny dudes become guest. Oh clock dow was johnny off. I would. I'd be like fuck i want. I want my guest on to be like over the top jackets fucked. Yeah actually like. I want guest onto assault people in front of me. Yeah i would. Immersion means to me.

AFC and NFC Championship preview | Money Maker Picks

"It's the in truth. Podcast with marc slayer presented by sweet sweat and committed the podcast mike evans marsh. Laura scott up produced the show like to thank the five folks over sweat for all your exercise and supplement needs. Sweet sweat dot com. Check them out. Sweets dot com also. Super book will hook up with jay corner gay later in the program to go picks and let me just start off right there I am. I'm the world's worst. If you've just go and we warned you comply often go opposite of mike nye and things are gonna work out well for you. I am to an eight against the spread to an eight against the spread. You or are you. I'm on the bottom looking way up at you. And you're only five and five. I know media critic ruling with mediocrity. At least you're me. I would take mediocrity right now to an eight mike. Two and eight. Tell you what i've been getting. Some bad beats. Well that beats beats so. I will give you this. I will give this Last week you took the chip the cheese minus ten and there's no doubt in my mind that if mahomes doesn't get hurt they win that game comfortably. Yeah and when he went out they were up like nineteen to three years again. It was going to get away from cleveland. but then he got hurt and everything changed so first of all. Do you anticipate him plane this week. And if he does which is is expected did give the bills much much of a chance yet. You know i it's interesting One do i anticipate him playing. Yes you know the the concussion thing being concussion protocol doesn't mean you were actually diagnosed with a concussion. And he was never actually diagnosed or at least. They didn't report a concussion. They never diagnosed him. He lost you. Know the function of You he stood up and was you know wobbly need right and that doesn't necessarily mean i mean most of the time. It indicates that you had some type of head trauma but not necessarily mean that you had head trauma but part of the new concussion protocol and this happened a couple of years ago game. I called in houston where remember tom. Savage tom savage got knocked. I mean he got knocked the f. out and he went. Where were you get that concussion. Paralysis your arms gets dillard and they put him back in the game and so from that point forward there was a big push. If you have some type of either you have that kind of stiffness of a or extremity or you lose the ability to to stand and and you know you get wobbly. They have to pull you out and put you in the concussion protocol and so at that point you're pretty much out of the game that that's the new protocol so the concussion stuff for the protocol stuff. He passed a couple of stages earlier in the week. That doesn't scare me. I think the foot is more problematic as far as the eye. He'll play with it. But i think the foot's more problematic than the concussion protocol so i think he will play. But do i think i do. I think the buffalo bills are damn getting. Yeah i do. And they're an interesting team because they're gonna throw it. That's that's what they do but they have the ability. I've seen them run the ball with efficiency. I've seen them do things You know that that would kind of the. I think there are more complete team than people. Give them credit for. And i think the only the only real missing link to me when it comes to them defensively. That don't do. I don't think they have one guy up front. That is a great like matchup nightmare where you have to turn protect. You have to have a plan like if you wanna go five one on ones across the board and getting a three by two formation you wanna get no four by one formation. You wanna get into spread empty formation. You're not really worried if you're kansas city about. Hey we gotta we gotta find a way to to to block at all or are we gonna you know we. We gotta find a way to block Hughes we got like i just. I just don't think there's anybody that really scares you from a one on one stamp. You know it's fascinating about this. Matchup is you have the benefit of looking back at regular season matchup between these two teams and what jumps out at you Kansas city won that game. Twenty six to seventeen in buffalo. They want it with their ground game. They only through it. Mahomes only through twenty six times for two hundred twenty five yards and two touchdowns but they ran the ball. Forty six times for two hundred forty five yards clyde edwards. Hilar- had twenty six carries for one hundred sixty one yards in that game right so it was. It was really a atypical type chiefs performance. Do they go that same kind of a game plan this week. This is the thing about the chiefs. That just intrigues me. Like look at the first drive against cleveland. i drive against cleveland. I mean they just ran the ball down their throats like they have the ability to be multiple. And one of the things about andy reid that i think he's done a great job with them is they're constantly. They're constantly doing things from formation standpoint from ocean standpoint just from just from a place standpoint that are unique every week. there's something that's a little bit unique about what they do and that to me is because they are so good. They're trying to guard against boredom and so like the fact that they have done that that that's in their past that they can do that. They're one of the few teams. I've ever watched that. I felt like and. I've never felt this way about anybody. Not even the teams that i played for our that i played on there. The maybe the only team that i've ever felt really comfortable saying they have the ability to flip the switch and i don't believe in flipping the switch. I don't believe that that's how you win. I don't believe that that's a long-term recipe for success. I don't yet they can do it. And it's that's amazing to me that they have that ability so bills win this game if they do what. Well i think. The bills The bills win this game if they can consistently produce on the offense of side of the ball in their passing game and that comes down to me do you. Can you create big plays. And can you keep the chains moving. So i one of the unique aspects of what the bills do is. They've got ito cole. Beasley on the inside. Who is like a quarterback playing wide receiver. He's a guy that that doesn't have a prescribed route so to speak our route tree. Everything he does is kind of option route. So it's do you see the exact same thing that the quarterback sees and you see leverage and coverage the way the quarterback sees it and you adjust your out accordingly the way the quarterback thinks you're going to just you're out and the answered all those questions is yes so i think he is. I think he's a real key. Especially on third down mike of stopping cole beasley and making making that third down. Target making the quarterback get off of that. If they can stay on that. I think they've got a they've got great success rate. The other thing is they're gonna get you into formation formation lee. They're gonna get you into three by one with a back or whatever it is and what they're gonna do is they're gonna force you they're gonna force you into situations where you got one on one on the outside into the boundary to stefan digs and the thing about stefan digs is. This eighty type of football is held josh allen. Told me point blank. That's devan digs. Would drive most quarterbacks crazy because he's never exactly where he's supposed to be everything is kind of an adjustment route based how he feels and how guys are covering him. But i've said this before. I've told you this before. It's not your ability to run fast. Everybody can run fast right everybody. Like what the hell's the difference between a four three eight two four four two in the overall scheme of things. There's no difference like it's the same damn thing right. Maybe it's over the course of forty fifty yards. Maybe you got an extra you know. Yard of separation whatever How many routes actually get run at forty years and if you run around forty to fifty yards. There's a double move involved and that's how you got open first place right so we make way too much out of just top end. Speed what what separates the fond digs is ability to stop his shorter quickness. His change of direction. The guy had a coach. This you're told me something really resonated with me when it comes to wide receiver. She said everybody can run fast. It's your bill to stop fast. That's what separates the great ones from the good ones. And i don't know that anybody stops faster or has more short short area separation skill than stefan days. I think that's why he's the. I think he led the league in in receiving yards. Right i mean. I think that's really what and you watch him. He'll adjust a route where he's supposed to run a six yard stick route and it'll be nine yards or it'll be four yards. Whatever and josh allen has such arm talent that he can be a site throw. A lot of a lot of quarterbacks can't do that because they don't have enough arm talent to do it so they've got to throw it on time so you around here in denver when peyton manning gum never forget watching peyton manning. Run a drill and he ran the show. I mean payment was in charge. Like the coaches would just stand on the sidelines. And just like watch him. Run the drill and him. Getting after guys like brandon. Stokely schist or or worse tom. Mary song eric decker and he'd be like mother. fm dude. When i tell you run that out could at eleven. I don't want it twelve. I don't want a ten and a half. i wanted to let you know otherwise. Because he relied on anticipation and timing and he was throwing to a spot before you got there. Yep ball was out of his hands out of return out of their breaks in. Here comes the ball and the balls hitting them in the face or josh allen has such arm count and he's like you make your break wherever the hell you wanna make your bike because i got the talent to get it there there. There's there's only a handful of guys. Mike over the course of of you'll it's the aaron rodgers it's the brett farve. It is the it. Is those guys that have that kind of arm talent. They can decide throwers and get away with it. Nobody there's very few the actually have that ability so we'll make our picks against the spread a little bit later but just kicking to win. I'm taking the chiefs. I'm too okay. I'm taking the chiefs. All right. how close or how. Big of a difference. We'll get to that little bit later. On without aaron rodgers at his worst game of the season against tampa bay in tampa in october. A thirty eight to ten loss rose sixteen of thirty five for hundred sixty yards two interceptions one of which was a pick six. He was sacked four times. He had a quarterback rating of thirty five point. Four does that is. That is that a preview of what's to come on sunday. I how do you. How do you flush that out of your system. Well i mean ill. Obviously aaron rodgers is one of the great seasons of all time and that was an outlier any through two picks in that game that were you know frankly they just weren't then we're good throws One i think it was mike. Edwards is just basically playing robber. You know thief whatever you wanna call it rolling down a single high safety situation playing the hook like he just teaches basically robbed a inside route. the other was a timing route on out cut by think. Davante adams that They blitz from the opposite side. And you know and and jamal deen just read it. Like he knew what was coming. You knew you have x. Amount of time to throw it and that's one of the things that that tampa does to you. They'll squad on routes and say we're going to bring pressure whereas squally these routes. We know that you have to get the ball out. And i'll five-step drop you know without a hitch and so we'll squad on these assuming are blitz is going to get there. See that's the thing about blitzing teams. Mike and i've always said this not so much picking up blitzes and understanding blitzes. It's the timing and execution of the blitz. Can you get to the quarterback essentially on your on your fourth step so the great blitzer. The great blitzer is in the league. Have this innate ability to count their steps. They've gotta get like if you if it takes you six steps to give a quarterback what you're not going to get to the quarterback he's going to have the ball on. So can you get there if you're coming off the slot. Can you get to can affect the throw on your fourth step. Take your four step bam affect the throw. You gotta get six. You're too late. So the blitz is a timing and execution thing. Timing the snap count and hitting spot to where you can get to the quarterback to affect the quarterback tampa. Does it as well as anybody. I mean devon white. I've said it a million times. He plays with rocket up his ass. Man he is. I've never seen a dude any more explosive anymore. Triggered than that dude Their their ability to bring pressure antoine. Winfield junior is a frequent phenomenal three level player. He can blitz from the edge. He can play coverage or linebacker. He can be a deep safety that the guy has skillset. He can play man like they've got guys that have that versatility to to play All the position murphy. Bunting is a really good player. Jamal deen really fast. Really good player. carl davis guy that nobody really ever talks about that. It to me is one of the top cover corners in football. So they've got the ability to bring that pressure and create create. Plays on the back end now. Here's the thing if you can pick it up and if you can snap it like change snap counts If you can quick snap them so they don't get to the position to put so they they have to take that six step to get to the quarterback then you can run routes a little bit deeper and you can burn you like you get big. Plays on the tampa bay buccaneers. So that is. That's going to be a chess match within chess match between aaron rodgers and and todd bowles the defense coordinator for tampa. I know you love talking about things brady did you. Did you see this breakdown of what. Brady's done since turning. Thirty seven. In to other great quarterbacks yes just a quick. This is in the playoffs. Since brady turned thirty seven versus other quarterbacks what they did in their entire career careers yes. Since turning thirty seven. Tom brady has fourteen playoff when he's fourteen in three in the playoffs since turning age. Thirty seven peyton. Manning had a total of fourteen playoff wins breeze nine rogers eleven rothlisberger thirteen okay total touchdowns in the playoffs since turning thirty seven brady thirty seven all time for these other guys. Manning forty three brees thirty seven. Rogers forty-six rothlisberger thirty seven and ultimately super bowls since turning thirty seven. Brady has four manning. Four breeze one rogers one rothlisberger. Three super bowl wins three brady to for manning. One for breeze one for rodgers to four rothlisberger. This is just what he's done since seven stupid. It is a stoop his and why he's the world's greatest american according to you. I mean i. It proves it mean. That's that's you've got proof right there. Imprint ridiculous right and here. He is in the nfc championship game again. It just as it's while not again. I mean a championship game is the first time he's been nfc championship game. But you know what i'm saying. Fourteen of the nineteen years. He started a full season. The nfl he's in a he's in the championship game. You know the thing about it and and get ready. America get ready. Green bay is your last hope. Standing in the way of what. I'm about to say tampa looks like a team. That's pointed all together right now. Right late late speed. Yeah if they win this week. They're going to win the super bowl and then brady wins again. My question base only thing stopping them from another brady super. They'll win the super bowl if they win this week. My question to you mike. What happened the other five years did he didn't play in a championship game right. What was he doing. Slacken taking time off who are the teams that represent who the teams got there those years. That's a good question. Well it was last year right. There was year that they didn't make the playoffs. Oh two thousand in two. I think they missed the playoffs. Other than i think the ravens picked him off once early. Written a divisional game gets with sexy. Rexy and mark. Sanchez knocked him off early. Really i think so. Wow kept them from the afc championship game with the ravens. The ravens won the the championship with joe flacco. That was the year they not demolished. They really yeah. Yup yup and maybe the colts one year i. I'm reaching but that only five times man all right so you got. I think the packers win. Metoo destroyed up packers. Yes now as far as how they do against the spread. Yeah got turn the expert. All right as promised Jay corner gay from Super book america's best bet joining the program right now. J. itself has not gone last week. Did not go well for me. I went owen four against the spread last week. Mike was a dominating two and two right. Now we stand against the spread in the playoffs. Although i did crush him in the regular season but in the play offs where where it really counts. The playoffs is workhouse. J. mike is five and five in the plow. Picks right yes and i am eight. Who could you imagine. gonna. I've been telling you opposite of what i pick all playoffs you to be you guys. Have you guys would have to close down. My i have to happen. Yeah you'd have to close down. Well i know looking at those records. I definitely want to see a marking. Get a super book account. I i'm serious. I mean we joke but literally if you had just gone against us from the start this season and just bet whatever we did. Opposite it'd be you'd be rushing it right. Yeah rushing it. And these are the jacor negate would be putting you up in a suite with all the buffets. You could possibly Telling you what just is. It's unbelievable unbelievable. J. j. j. Take mercy on me. It'd be you'd be a well. Yeah i know. I know all right. Nice week guy. Nicely as anybody that has it. Two and eight record is always welcome. I we'll see on the guy you want to the guy you want. Because you're gonna get you're gonna eat free when you go with me all right so here we go. We'll let mike. Mike started off a go ahead. Mike where the nfc championship games. You've got the packers. And the packers the tampa bay buccaneers. And then. obviously you've got the bills in kansas city. So where are you going all right. I'm gonna go with green bay boy. They looked really really strong last week. They'll be playing at home. Brady won't be bothered by playing in the cold. Although is getting older you know maybe the bloods thinning out. He's been spent all that time in tampa. But aaron rodgers just is has been exceptional and i also have the added benefit of the thumping that rodgers and the packers took earlier this year. And i think that will help serve to be a huge motivating force. So i'm gonna go with green bay to To win and cover the what three and a half years. I'll take green bay and then in the afc game kansas city With the assumption. Of course patrick mahomes. Despite boy you saw as much as i give credit to to kansas city for being able to cut out and really play a gritty football game. After mahomes went out to thing i noticed was just the stark difference in kansas city with mahomes and without if mahomes doesn't get hurt in that game. I have no doubt that they win. That game by two touchdowns fifteen points or more. And then i would've i would've i'd be one and three one and three or exactly. Yes so folks. So i think as long as mahomes is playing ken. Cities is more than three points better. So i'll take the chiefs guard cheese minus three all right. I'm gonna go ahead and pick and then we'll let you kinda discuss j. so Here's the deal. I'm going exact opposite view Because you suck and i need. I need all the help i can get at. Least make this respectable. So i do like tampa bay. I liked tampa. Bay's defense i like the speed and athleticism with which they play. I like the fit fit the fact that they blitz and they beat you into some throws aaron rodgers threw two picks the five all season he threw two against tampa bay They have that ability. I don't know that they win. But i think it's going to be a tight game. I'm going tampa bay there. And i'm getting the three and a half and then just you know for the sake of argument and trying to china real you in here. Not that i can really you him. But at least make it respectable The buffalo bills Getting the three points. So that's what i say j i suck but that's the way it's going to go. Well i know you said you can use the mike. Buck does not good either. I just saw. I just suck a little less. Well i'll give you a mini tweet my but Looking at this you the first game. The bucks at the packers. We actually opened this game. Four and a half and it was all tampa bay. Money came rolling in and drove the line. All the way down to the packers minus three as you mentioned. Now we're back up to three and a half is really weird. This line is basically saying that. These two teams are eating which i don't agree with. I agree with mike. I i like the packers They they have a little bit of revenge factor as these two teams met and october. Remember it was a very similar game to what we just saw last weekend. Where the same kind of you know built a lead. They blew it and got blown out. Green bay did the same thing against tampa bay and in tampa bay. I think rebate was up about ten. Nothing rodgers threw a couple of bad picks. Next thing you know the bucks roll them. But i think it's going to be different for one of the key factors and handicapping. This game is the bucks are do are are doing at three game road trip and we all know about that back. That is very very difficult to win. Three straight games on the road so packers there the other game middle have chice. Of course this is all about my home. If my in there we could be looking at the bill like minus four. Four and a half. Maybe even more as you mentioned that she's a totally different team. When mahomes isn't in there i don't think he's gonna be one hundred percent but i certainly believe he's going to play. We opened this game at four Mahomes got hurt. We reopened at two and a half thinking that he was going to play is leaning that way. Now it's back up to three people bet this game. They're all over the bills. So that's two underdogs. The public is on. This will probably be the first time in a long long time. Maybe ever that the are going to need the two favorites in the conference championship game. So this is going to be very interesting to see how betting goes over the next couple of days. We were talking about it earlier. But i i really think my beer concern for mahomes. His foot You know the protocol. I think you clear the concussion protocol. He was never actually diagnosed with a concussion. So i don't know that expedients him getting through concussion protocol but the bottom line to me is the foot was more concerning Than the head issue. So we'll see exactly how that plays out but We'll take a shot on kind of a little bit. Or how do they treat so. Let me just tell you from that position. So i played a hole playoff series When i was in washington. I played against Atlanta we beat them twenty four to seven. I think than we played dan. Fc championship was against detroit. We beat them. Forty something to ten or something of that nature and then we went to the super bowl and beat down. The bills and i had a high ankle sprain. So have my leg shot up for all three of those games And my whole foot would go numb and really hard to play that way. I think for quarterback I think it's almost impossible. Because you have no feel of your feet and your feet and your sets are so important. So i think that's one that for mahomes because if you come up if it's his foot or store of its plan a fashion or whatever it is your whole photo go numb and there's like that's just one of those things that i just don't know that you can play that way quarterback j. Let me forewarn you here because this is the kind of stuff that and i talk about so Mark i have had times where i have sat on the toilet for about twenty five minutes with a good magazine and my foot fallen asleep right and the just trying to get up and walk was impossible right. How in the world did you play football. Well we've all been there one. The toilet asleep foot. I mean right yes the toilet us major affliction lixion. Yeah what's worse. Is the toilet asleep hand then. You're not sure what you're doing when you clean yourself. That's even worse so you gotta be careful. Yeah you've got to be very very careful you give me all of a sudden you roll around and the next thing you know you know your your finger the paper all right j. Listen everybody knows. There's a six minute limit on the toilet okay. Six it read the article longer than six minutes six man. I'm just warming up really. That's a problem man. i'm. I'm in and out i. It's that's sanctuary. Listen you got young kids. You're looking for a place to go to be able have some alone time. And i got you all right. Well hey listen jay man. We really appreciate it. Hopefully i. hopefully. I can make a comeback. Because if i win. If i go in the next three games tied five wins apiece correct. Yeah so that's what's going to happen over. Yeah i gotta go over. Yeah mike can do. It is hey. Don't put pass me. Yeah all right. J. listen all the best. You thank you so much. We'll be we'll check back in with you next week. That was great guy. Good one all right. That's j. corn gave from super book. America's best bet like to think super book for being one of the sponsors to the show also like to thank our fine folks over at sweet sweat For all your exercise and supplement needs that sweet sweet sweet sweet dot com For mike for myself for scott huff.

"We can't is the latest Chinese APP to come into far from President Donald Trump. What could a ban me for the one point? Two million people who use it? Hello, and welcome to Babich from economist Radio we podcast from technology and science. I'm Tom Savage. The. Economist is deputy up coming up on today's show. Warming Chapters Canada's Lost Arctic Ice Shelf temperatures are about five degrees. Celsius. Higher than the average of they've been since nineteen you want and a sizzling solution to barbecue pollution there must be a better way of doing this rather than having to defense extraction system through multiple filters. But first TIKTOK. A Chinese video has been in the news a lot lately. Now, the spotlight is falling on, we chat another Chinese APP. Contrary to what many people think in the West we chat all wishing as the Chinese motion is known does for more than just messing. For a lot of people, Rita is like their lives they live the life around it. You know, Leeann Louis is a San Francisco resident originally from Guangdong Province in China for its Chinese uses both at home and abroad. Is something they rely on every day some of them by. Itself with some people. In south houses in each other, even by itself cell phones through it. And it's not just ECOMMERCE Leon is a Peace Corps volunteer and she also uses we chat to help keep her local community safe in San Francisco. We report suspicious activities in crimes in Chinatown altogether over four hundred merchants. Certain information are we chat with US and local law enforcement? So is very important that we have that available to keep them safe. Now, all that could be in jeopardy on August the sixth. Donald Trump signed executive orders seeking to fan American firms from doing business with the parent companies of we chat and TIKTOK. It's the latest example of technology firms being caught in crossfire between America and China. How. Might an American ban of the so-called Super App Change Life the Global Chinese community it's where the vast majority of digital activity for Chinese people takes place. How said is all Asia Technology correspondent the best way to think about it as sort of facebook Amazon, Watson Instagram expedia on more kind of Ole smashed together. So I've got, we chat my own and I've used it to communicate with Chinese people both in China I've been there and when I haven't been there and it just looks like a chat APP. So where is all this functionality hiding? It is hiding deep within the APP on one of the main differences between way Shin. which is the Chinese version and we chat, which is the international version is the degree of functionality to which you access. However I did learn when I was in Beijing because I've got the international APP on my phone and a friends took my phone for me. He didn't change anything about the APP he just went into where he knew the right bits of it were signed me up for each pay by think sort of eroneous linking me to his bank account. So there is functionality buried in there. It's just much harder to find it on the international versions, and there are some things that the Chinese version does the international version doesn't do. Okay and how is it that we cut has come to a see this enormous importance said China's mobile ecosystem. This one too big Combo is messing payments. As you mentioned pretty much everybody you could want to talk to in China is on we chat people's grandparents are on reach, and that's a lot of the concern with this order that trump has given that they'll be cut off the other reason that we has been so. Successful is that the way that the company can install an apple users phones in China is very fragmented. Each phone company has its own. APP Store and it's complicated. So instead of doing that will companies did was just right. What's these many programs that run inside we chat itself and we chat has kind of become the mobile operating system in China equivalent to apple's irs or Google's android. Okay. So if the American ban on we. Chat only applies to people in America because it's meant to be driven by national security isn't it what the impact be there? So there are only about three million people who use we chat with some degree of regularity in America, and most of these are sort of Chinese immigrants who are using it to stay in touch with people back home. So those people would be cut off from the it's not entirely clear you know it. Probably wouldn't be a crime for them to keep using it because that would contradict freedom of speech sort of issues in America but what would probably happen is they would be delisted from the APP store that can be accessed in America, and then anybody who wants to download or update the APP would be cutoff but that would hit first of all those three million Chinese people, but it would also hit you and me because we And other businesses would not be able to continue to download and use it to communicate sort of inside China and that's because apple at Google big American. Companies would have to delist we chat from everywhere APP because otherwise they would be doing business with ten cents the company that makes it that would violate this new ban that is the idea it's worth bearing in mind that nothing like this has ever been done before trump is. Using a local depot, it basically says that this is an emergency in the seats using presidential powers to get out of that emergency, the emergency being that we just as being used to spy on Americans but we don't know exactly what that means from the lawyers that I've spoken to a BIOTA. They think that it means not only will apple have to remove from its up stores in America, but also the whole world including China. It's still an American company in China and the definition of transactions is so broad that it's kind of up to Donald Trump. What happens here? Okay. So that would be potentially devastating to apple's business in China where overseas a lot of iphones because at the Colorado, which is really don't watch us is it? No, it's completely no use Tolan. China and analysts are throwing around numbers like if the worst case scenario does come to pause. that apple will lose somewhere between twenty and thirty percent of its global revenues essentially just because it's Chinese, sales will disappear. Overnight is obviously crazy land. Now, apple makes a very large chunk of big American stock indices. So that would stock at obsessed Donald Trump is with the stock market. So do we really think this is what he means. Do we have any idea of exactly how far reaching this executive orders meant to be? There's a few prior to bear in mind when sort of speculating wondering what's going to happen here, I will read on precedents territory. This kind of hasn't really happened before second of all previously when trump has used executive orders, there's a really good example. He used an executive order on the security of the ICT would censor information and communications technology supply chains in the United States that was in May last year but the actual rules that need to be put in place to sort of carry out that trump order they only got floated by the department. Of Commerce in January of this year, so it's not like the order itself creates any rules that anybody has to follow. It just says the trump is ordering something to happen the actual rule-making process happens later and by personally quite skeptical that anything will happen before the election because it's not only a few months away. The other bit of context that you've got to bear in mind is that trump's running for reelection and bashing on China is a great way to well, maybe it's not a great way. It's way to make Joe Biden look weak on China. And kind of stir up some nationalism to help him in the polls. So how do you think the United States should be going about this if it's concern really as national security, not just electioneering. One thing that America do is get its own data security house. In order we didn't need we Chiasson Tiktok four masses of American data be stolen by allegedly Chinese hackers. The Office of Personnel Management BIG GOVERNMENT HR body essentially had millions and millions of records of government employees student that's nothing to do with Chinese technology companies and everything to do with lax. Security Standards Across both the American government and business, and one of the reasons is because America doesn't have a federal standard for privacy and data security. The EU does even China does even India's building one right now but America doesn't have one, and if you really were serious about securing the data of Americans and locking down these digital networks so that they're safer for everyone to use. You would do that. You wouldn't just attack one Chinese after another when there's no evidence that anything bad is even happening there how Hudson very much. Thanks for having me Tom.

Dot Com. Next up the height of summer, bring sunny days and blue skies for many. But while lots of people are enjoying the hot weather, more signs are emerging at the dangers of the woman climate. In Canada's north, the last intact ice shelf proved no match for this summer's ought to heat-wave. We've seen some examples of how series of is in Siberia with fires and other issues on the Russian side equally warm in the Canadian Arctic Chris with Dell Rights for the economist in fact, up in Ellesmere Island, which is in the High Arctic and where. This shelf is located in temperatures are about five degrees Celsius higher than the average of they've been since nineteen eighty-one. So it's quite a dramatic warming and is having a big impact that before we go further, what exactly is an ice shelf? The ice shelves in the Arctic are a little different than the ones in Antarctica the ones in Antarctica are just An extension of glaciers that go into the ocean the ones in Ellesmere island in the Canadian Arctic are really a collection of ice that over the years has been pushed into the shore and fused at one point. Ellesmere island was surrounded by about eight thousand, six, hundred, square kilometer ice shelf, which is just one giant shelf that extended out from the land. into the ocean. But since the late nineteen, ninety s and early, two thousands though shells have been starting to break up partly due to climate change due to warmer temperatures and other issues as well and so we started to see the breakdown of those in the Middle Shelf. The one that broke in last week or two was in fact last intact one. Now a member Siberia some of the temperatures were warmer than it was in Europe at the time, which is kind of bizarre but kind of temperatures that we actually talking about on the ground in the Canadian Arctic unfortunately with nineteen minute, the researchers couldn't go up July to do the testing. So we're not sure exactly what the temperatures were around. Desma island at the time what would have happened as a research team go up every year and they measure water temperature air temperature, and what they're trying to determine is why else by shells collapse is at the? Water warms up in the air that warms up is some sort of combination? Is there something else because there have been ice shelf collapses going on around Ellesmere island since about two thousand and two, this have been about five or six ones. But this particular shelf was last intact one on the island and the last intact in the Arctic and on July thirty thirty I. It's split so that about eighty square kilometer one, hundred and eighty broke off. Okay. So if they weren't there person how if they've been able to track these changes as it just some. Satellite images or they using other equipment as well no satellite images, and then what they do research team from Carleton University, and University of British Columbia in Canada and the University of California Davis who go up every July for about a week they checked their equipment, take down all the data that was on the equipment that's being safe during the course of the year, and then they leave the equipment there and they come back and analyze the data and see what they found and this year of course, the problems surrounding a pandemic prevented them from going and. Now, the collapse of the Ice Shelf has meant that they don't know what future is they suspect other equipment has lost, but they won't know until next year when they actually go up again to see what exactly is left. But even before they go up again, they've got to make some tough decisions about how safe they think the ice shelf will be where the equipment was. The Ice Shelf stick was about eighty meter sticks, which is a pretty tall building if you're on the ground and they were working in some areas where the ice was about ten meters. But now at the stability of the remaining shelf will be in what some of the issues will be from that. Other any other immediate environmental affected the area then well, the first environmental effect is. The eighty square kilometer piece of the ice shelf that broke off. Then a couple of days later broke into two smaller ones fifty, five about twenty, four square kilometers. These are like giant icebergs only about ten percent of is above the waterline ended about ninety percent is below the waterline. Flats like giant islands and so these giant islands are now going to start floating around the Arctic. Ocean. Say the shelf breaking must've been fatty dramatic is there wildlife in the area that's affected by this? There isn't a law of animals or things like that. That would be on the on the islands. But what there is is between the Shell and the land, there's something that's called an EPI shelf lake, which is a very rare volume of freshwater that comes in off the land and Lake Trout and what the researchers have discovered through radar and. Also through ultimately on melting a hole, ten meters, the ice they found that this lake drains somehow through the ice shelf into the ocean but there's actually creatures living in the Ice Shelf on its range of scallops, some Arctic cod there are starfish, all of those sorts of things, all that any other problems caused by the I. Shelf Breaking Away to some degree the ice shelves themselves blocked water in warmer climates might run off Acer's might run off the land into the ocean. So if the ice shelf will disappear and I think most scientists think. They're going to disappear in the coming years. Then that may have an environmental challenges that makes it easier for freshwater to get into the ocean and at some point that has an impact on all levels as well. The people who are far away from Canada they may say, well, you know this sounds terrible. What does this have to do with the other consequences for the rest of the world aside from the fact that this is an indication of climate change in general well, Derek Miller who's one of the researchers from Carleton University puts it in. The context of saying that the Arctic region is really the Globes air conditioning system, and if the air conditioning system is breaking down and temperature getting hotter there, that's going to have locations throughout the whole planet and implications. We may not necessarily know about the moment until they actually, and so it's clear. There's major change taking place in the Arctic, and that is going to have a cascading effect on other parts of the world and their climates. So recently, we've heard about things like polar vortices and that kind of thing these are consequences of the. Polar regions, weather systems being upset, and that's the kind of way that this has ripple effects for the rest of the world. That's right and also has an impact on the ecosystems of the. Arctic. In that in some cases, the ones that rely on ice as the ice disappears, those ecosystems will disappear and also as the ice disappears as ice from land or melts and flows under the ocean that's been ever impact on ocean levels falls between about what's in the past to. Chris. Well, thank you very much based on. and. Finally after talking about ice, we get to talk about fire as restaurants opened up. In. Lockdown. Many a starting up their barbecues. While the Aroma of flame grilled meat and vegetables may delight diners. The neighbors of some of restaurants aren't so pleased. Pollution levels near restaurants can be notably higher than average largely because of the emissions from kitchens pull Marsili Kelly is our innovation editor. With popularity of Indo barbecue increasing, this is a problem that's going to get worse. So I think some people by the. Way The problem of indoor pollution in the developing world, you've got people using stoves adores, and that means you get lot of particulates have logged problems but you'll say this actually extends to restaurants that have grilled meat invade I mean this particular problem was in Germany is a German environment. Agency which I. Sir The frontal for institute to investigate this, and here this research is really pretty shocked at the amount of pollution coming off a test barbecue, commercial type restaurant barbecue, which they set up in that lab. Also other studies around the world have shown that pollution levels in the vicinity of restaurants can be higher, and that's usually from the emissions from kitchens it's not more. Cars People Park but kitchens in particular. Now Indo barbecuing, which has become very popular. These grills and restaurants also serve restaurants are using them. Now, that's going to make that problem worse because all that material that's coming from the barbecue is being vented to the outside air and what is it at particular about the chemicals that are coming off these Dole barbecues that say dangerous The typical pollutants, nitrogen oxides and carbon monoxide is in particular matter but you also get some sort of nasty aromatic hydrocarbons and these things can cause cancer and they're produced by the incomplete combustion of fats and also oil-based marinades which can be used not just on meat, but also in vegetables as well. Now, there's a group of researches he think happy onset today. So aside, just look grilling things what do they propose? Well, this was the Front Hoffa group that you've investigated this they really quite so short by what they found. They thought there must be a better way of doing this rather than having sort of fancy extraction system with multiple filters which are often difficult to use, and sometimes I don't even use the toll. So they came up with a better time of grill. Now, this grill, they don't really releasing the details at the moment but what it does in effect is take the fumes in the emissions coming from the grill and before venting to the outside recirculated by sucking it back through the hot embers in the barbecue into what they. Combustion zone where these materials are more fully combusted before they're being vented to the outside air. Another records can reduce the pollutants by up to ninety percent. Well, that sounds like good news for the neighbors. But what about the diners they still going to enjoy the same taste? Well, we don't know this new grill should go on sale hopefully, next year and bulletproof will be in the tasting wounded sounds a brilliant idea.

Everybody loved Halloween compare a player to a Halloween candy. That's your quick question of the day verse. Go ahead hop in. Because look. I know it's a polarizing topic polarizing candy and a polarizing player, but there's truth to be had here Marlin MAC is candy corn because disgusting not everybody likes candy corn. But in truth, candy corn is very good, candy Korda's delicious. It is a wonderful treat and Marlin is a good running back. Nobody wants to like him. It's it's invoked to say, oh, do any good is, you know, Paul Perkins. No, he's actually quality running back. He was last year. He is this year. I like Marla Mak rest of season.

All I get a lollipop here. This this going? Well, it's pretty good. It's pretty good. And it's terrible on the inside. You don't like the snow? It is awful. Roles in the insides of Tizi pops are terrible terrible things. And at the beginning of the season when Jordan Howard was catching five passes three passes a game. You went holy crap. That was your three licks. I've got three hackery lexin the passing game. It's all happening is coming true. They talked about Jordan Howard, working on the jugs machines and to and I've got a legit Rb one. And then they said, no the in the past four games, we're going to give you maybe a target a game if you're lucky and you're just back to Jordan Howard, getting twelve carries on the ground. And now, you're just stuck with the inside of a terrible to see. Well, I actually really liked the inside. Of course, you do. Disgusting back in my day back in my day. I really hope that somehow because we recorded this the night before Halloween, I really hope that Jeff Fisher's hired as the head coach of the Cincinnati Bengals tomorrow. I'm not sorry. The Cleveland Browns. I'll take any one of those teams. You don't care. All right. I'm gonna compare Chris Thompson, Ted double bubble. You guys know what I'm talking about the Selva bubble. Yeah. Those are the those are the the they make up thirty percent of all of the candy at the end of the day when you look through. And you're like, oh what I give up, but you can the little twisty bubble gums you're going for size for bubbles. You can get it done double bubble. I just read this. They sell one hundred thirty eight thousand pounds of double bubble a year. Wow. But here's the thing about double bubble. The dump you get a couple of choose of flavor. And then it's gone. Your whole experience has gone. Everything's going fine. All this tastes good. And then it's junk, and unfortunately, you get about to choose into guarding Chris tops say you got two good games to start the year off with fruit stripe. Well, that's not a that's not a Halloween candy Mike kit with strong, not Halloween candy. No, it's I mean, it can't be. But it's not known as right when else do you get double bubble? Yeah. Like do they sell that a different day of the year? Can you go to the grocery store? Get any elbow mobile. Be like, oh, look, I'll grab a handful of these double mumbles. No. So Chris Thompson. Unfortunately, cannot stay healthy what happened to single bubble by the way when out. Yeah, they self only. Thirty thousand pounds of that. But no. So we got candy corn. Double bowling Tootsie pop. That was helpful everybody. All right on Twitter. You can find us at the F F ballers definitely check out our fantasy football community. I looked at this yesterday. There are over seventy two hundred of you supporting this podcast at thank you so much joined the foot dot com. So they appreciate yeah. Yeah. The fantasy football really appreciate very nice. Let's get into the news. News and notes from around the league. Well news. I'm starting for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Yes, we already knew about that. But I needed to bring it up again because I'm back Ryan Fitzpatrick while you're back, but you you would fit more with this news drop. Oh, Ryan Fitzpatrick back from the seventies to start with this week in the National Football League. You guys one five or six touchdowns this week. I want seven you got. I can do it does that Amana chest here like absorbed more impacts is that why you can. Yeah. You try taking a helmet to the chest without this bag of for. All right. Here's the big trade be deceased. Damaris Thomas was acquired by the Texans traded from the Broncos in exchange for a fourth round draft pick. It's it's a great move on because the Texans play in Denver this week. So cool. It's your I saw your tweet Mike, you it's we have a full rocket jock situation here. Just where a player has been. Traded mid game. It's pretty funny because I mean, he has to start now at in Denver where he's made his Mark. He's been a great player for them. And he goes to a good situation to Shawn Watson the Texans threatening for the play offs and fantasy wise. This is good for manual Sanders. It's a litte FIS him to me to some of the things that he's done this year have been super impressive. But we're all holding our breath waiting for the next shoe to drop, and then ultimately, Portland Sutton is the monster winner here because he is a beast of a man. And now he's going to get consistent snaps. He's end more targets. Yeah. He is a great wide receiver is my number one coming into the draft. And clearly the Broncos have fallen in love with the guy because he was in the preseason. He was in from week one even three waters see sets. And now they have the confidence to ship off the Maria's Thomas, the the main piece of their wide receiver core over the last several years, Cortlandt Sutton is to me. I mean, we said this. On yesterday's show and even last week's show talking on waivers now with this trade done. He he has the chance to be a locked and loaded weekly wide receiver two straight off the waiver wires. I do see this as a downgrade for various times not everybody will see it that way because you get an upgrade in quarterback. Right. You're going from case keenum as what he was already being basically, the number two. They're behind Emmanuel Sanders. Now, he goes over to an upgraded quarterback. Shawn watson. But he's the number two behind the under Hopkins reason, I think it is a downgrade is is just simple when wide receivers change teams. It's not always good is not always quick and easy. This is a mid season change over to a team that wants to you know, run the ball have defense, and is a clear, you know, it's not like Emmanuel Sanders. Deandre Hopkins another level of wide receiver one. He is the grow your cut main guy there, and I think it's also bad news. For KiKi Cutie. Yeah. Oh, yes. Certainly is is ceiling in the role that possibly could have been there for him. When he returned from his injury is capped. It's an interesting moves move the Texans. They needed to do something. I mean, they're they're on their way for a playoff run and they had to add a weapon, but this is interesting because the weapon they're losing or loss was will fuller the field stretcher to Mary's Thomas is not a field stretcher like will fuller anymore. Neither neither was KiKi though. And I think I think ultimately why talked about Vincent Smith is this. What are they gonna do here? But I I if you look at Thomas is more replacing the utility of KiKi and being a more, you know, obviously, healthy established. Look he wasn't doing anything in Denver. So I don't think it's necessarily it's downgrade when you when you think about the expectations of what you had last three games for Maria's Thomas three for thirty five. For forty three for fifty. Do. I think he can catch five balls a game with the Shawn Watson, I do. And so what is your expectation to three fringe guy? I think that's possible. Especially the way teams rotate covers to Dan Ray Hopkins. This also could and I'm not saying it is. But we see moves like this happen. That are good indications of other players who are injured not being as close as we all hope. So it could be one of those things where they know Kiki's aways out, but you might not be back for several weeks, and they have to have another wide receiver. But it was a smart move for both teams the eagles have acquired wide receiver golden Tate. That's huge. Wow. From the lions in exchange for a third round pick. They've also restructured the lions have Marvin Jones's contract, and this is kind of an interesting move over. All right. I mean, golden Tate is been a centerpiece of the offense. And you know, twenty six percent of all targets in Detroit when he's seven. As I'm a golden Tate. Yes. Yeah. I had him down as a twenty-seven percent target share. That's just a massive amount of target. So you look at you know, it's very similar situation. As what we just talked to you where you remove a big piece. I'll tell you this and Marvin Jones and Kinney golladay. We're going to be talking about one of those guys in the main segment of the show so won. We we'll be talking about one of these guys not gonna dive too far into talk about it. It is. It's eerily similar as far as it helps. And hurts because I think I think golden Tate owners have to be sad. Yes. You're going from a report where you are a ninety and one thousand guy for the last three years with Matthew Stafford. Now, you switch teams midseason. Sure. Maybe you get a quarterback upgrade if you believe winces his better. But you are honestly, you're now, you're downgrading your you're going from being the one or maybe the two and certain games too. You're the you're the. Three now because Zacher and alshon Jeffery are the one to I do think that golden Tate will have some good games for the eagles. Certainly hurts Nelson galore. I believe that this is just another receiver to take targets away. From it wasn't like you are already banking on the Lord of the viscera, Jordan Mathews, though, it does it does say goodbye. And on the other side, look Marvin Jones is role becomes more secure from target standpoint. He had been he had only surpassed sixty ours. One time in the first six games this year and Kenny golladay had had the breakout. I four games. So to me after the breakout week for Marvin Jones's past week where he had tin catch or seven catches in one hundred seventeen yards two touchdowns. How do you feel about Jones? I mean spectacular. Yeah. As do I and then Kenny golladay more opportunity for him. So very interesting. Very interesting trade, and then some other moves, Tom. Montgomery if you wanna fumble get outta town. The ravens acquired time Gumri from the Packers in exchange for a twenty twenty seven then pick which is the same as a bad full of double bubble. Yeah. I think the the bag full they would've accepted that. But it just wasn't offered. This is insane. You're you're basically, cutting the guy. Yeah. Except you get a pick a worthless. Pick two years from now. I mean, they are putting him in it. It's it's a great situation for the Green Bay Packers running backs. Now, you've got two headed monster instead of a three headed monster. I think Aaron Jones is looking mighty dealers fantastic, especially since especially since now with time on Gumri out there upcoming games are with teams are going to score. And it's going to be high scoring Green Bay's going to need to score. They're going to be passing the ball Aaron Jones been great in that role. So with and and that was you know, ten Montgomery. Here's a wide receiver. So he was always on right? You'll in those situations now, he's gone. And then on the flip side buck gallon. Alex Collins, just m- muddies the water. Maybe this is replacing Kenneth Dixon, saying, okay. He's not gonna come back off the I R, but you can't be happy. If. Terrible for all decisions for Baltimore running back. Yes. I mean, you don't you don't have prior guy. You don't want us. Maybe it's special teams for the majority of it and rotating in for Bucknell by they saw what he did on Sunday, this that we gotta get some of that the bills have agreed to terms with Terrell prior. Oh. How do we do? We know the position they have agreed to terms with it should be quarterback. It should be one hundred percent should be quarterback. Derek Anderson's gonna play on Sunday. It'll be out with concussion is going to be Nathan Peterman because Josh Allen has been ruled out. He is not throwing yet. Either the bills are they're in trouble. You saw this past week when they wanted to go the not wanted they win. They're going full wildcat on a bunch of snaps throwing out every trick. They possibly could to beat the patriots. If they're now have a legit wildcat quarterback. Just it don't even give them a playbook just say, okay? Through L prior. Take a snap and do something. Really cool. Yeah. You remember seventh grade? Do you remember waiting for the raiders do that? Yes. You're has the longest touchdown run by quarterback. And he does history. Yes. He he's a great athlete that would be cool. And if he's gonna play wide receiver them, would you so in in truth? Would you be willing to take a flyer waiver wire pick on Terrell Pryor in the hopes that they do utilize him from wildcat. And he just touches the ball more. No, I wouldn't it. That would be. I've got too many priorities is a fantasy owner at this stage of the season too, many things I'm thinking about too many. If you're basically what you're saying is if you're chasing, Terrell Pryor. That's. You're in a dark place. Your vote is already upside down. You know, what if you're wanting in my cabinet and hang out with your one in seven you should do that just for something to distract you. Some debate is into also news on AJ greens toe at least one report from the Cincinnati Enquirer says that he will quote, be fine. And that the booty was wearing his precautionary the they do have the by week is just good timing for fantasy owners in that respect. So we'll find out what happens, and then maybe I have a receiver to throw to you know, what I mean? Yeah. May meet him got Boyd. Yeah. I like AJ the Mon. All right. We're going to get into pump the brakes, and then a special Halloween segment of the show before we do that. We wanna thank pub g mobile, oh, baby.

And then eventually Christmas rolls around you go one makers this to me you on. So check it out go to Pristina auction PRI STI in the auction dot com. Make a completely free account and make sure when you sign up you let them know that you heard about them for the fantasy football podcast. I've a follow up real quick. Okay. Sean McDermott was asked about Roe prior playing quarterback. He did not dismiss it. He says the sign the signings, Terrell Pryor, and it's all about the bills current situation at the position trill prior. If you look priors. He's not going to be the fulltime QB. He will get a handful of snaps at the quarterback and throw some passes it, yes and some interceptions. Maybe he did this for a while. And you leave when he was making the transition in Cleveland took some wildcat snaps. He threw a few pass and he was valuable for fantasy there. And you look it's always nice when I mean, if you could ever play a quarterback in a wide receiver slot that then you would do that. So I mean, he's going to be wide receiver and your platform. Still. He's going to have to throw himself chasing after Terrell Pryor is hey, it's Halloween. All right. Well, you know, what it's Wednesday, and it may be Halloween. But we also have to pump the brakes so O O Reilly. I think we did that better than Andy Jason Mike I've ever done that. I agree. I'm pumping the brakes on Wendell Smallwood and Corey Clement because I believe that Josh Adams will become the man, or at least the man most dependable in that backfield in Philadelphia by the season's end, he's the better bigger stronger running back, and while I know that they kind of lean on Smallwood right now. I don't think that's where they want to be in Corey Clement not enough snaps. I think you've gotta pump the brakes with your your viewpoint. First of all in Clemett. Look I've got him in a couple of leagues I hope for better things. It's not coming. And when I watched the tape he moves his legs a lot. He ain't going anywhere and then window Smallwood right now, the volume's there where you can flex him. I'm not saying that you can't. But I think the Transition's coming. So if there's opportunity to move him if there's opportunity to protect yourself by picking up, Josh Adams. I think that's what you do on pumping the brakes on that backfield overall because. It's just hard to predict unfortunately. Yeah. You never wanna be in a backfield with three running backs. That's why I'm not quite as high on Josh Adams. But I agree. He has looked the best of the three. And I don't have any problem. Pump the brakes on small wooden inclement. I'm pumping the brakes on Alex Collins, speaking of three headed running back by committees. Now, I I had this in here prior to the trade for time on Gumri. So this is an even more aggressive pump to two pumps. Double-o Alex Collins, he's going to be in a low scoring possible. Low scoring divisional game the Pittsburgh Baltimore games. They're not always the fun explosive offense of outputs that you want to see but Alex Jones has been very touchdown dependent this season. He already has five touchdowns on the season. Which is really rescued some of his games where it's like, oh, he was he was pretty good. Even though he was ineffective on the ground. Pittsburgh is the second. Toughest matchup right now against running back specifically because they've only given up three touchdowns on the ground to two at all like two running backs at all not just the star. But through the whole team that's eight weeks. Only three touchdowns. I don't see this being an Alex Collins touchdown probability games. I'm pumping the brakes on him, especially now with puck gallon and time Montgomery may be mixing in well Nellie. Yeah. Yes. It's a messy situation. And it's it's kind of sad because you know, that Harbaugh has wanted to have a guy fair for so long, and they just haven't they haven't had it. Yup. I don't gonna pump the brakes on big band. Ralph Lewis Berger he's gonna take on the Baltimore Ravens. Jason was just talking about the match and look despite the success of the booty, scoot and one big band does not have much scoots to his boots. I hope this can turn into a Russell Russell Wilson situation where next week. We Andy pumps the brakes whatever's playing against Baltimore. And they explode after big lead explodes to seventy four and one when he played them at home earlier in the season. It are coming off a loss to they're going to be hungry division game. Big Ben against the ravens. I'm off. I'm trying to find a a better option. I think Ben maybe. Yes. This is a little bitty baby. Man. I get it's. Weeks or here, you might be forced into playing him. But if you're one of those teams that you got to QB's on your bench. Well, let me ask you probably playing that other quarter. But let me ask you this. Because I believe in stream my stream of the week, Derek Carr. Right. So who would you take would you because I know you're not a fan of their car in general, but I like car this week. So would you pray car over Big Ben rankings will be up later today? And that's going to be one of those things that I'm looking at. But as of right now, my house your hair feel let me let me give it a rub grubbing through the chest area, not feeling comfortable. Right. And as of right now, I feel like Ben's going to be low level QB one at bests. He's still rubbing it. Really troubling making my mustache single. Yes. If w bro. That was pumped the Br pump the brakes on whatever you were doing right there. That was pump the brakes Reilly auto parts better price. Better parts, better prices every day. We're moving on. Major that make your most ashville still tting fill little frightening. We're going to go through here. Our special segment for this Halloween is we wanted to break down. These rosters in the NFL right now. And look at one player that we believe will haunt fantasy owners for the remainder of the fantasy sees in whichever way that they're gonna look you can be haunted in a number of ways. Yeah. Right. You can be tempted to start a guy when you should set him. You could be, you know, expecting something from a player that you never get you could've gotten rid of a guy who's gonna haunt you. Because he's coming back into his own. So many opportunities to be haunted. I'm going with. I think it's Russell Wilson who are as we refer to him rose. Look the the math on Russell Wilson no longer adds up to fantasy success. And look he's he's the eighteenth best quarterback in football. Okay. He was drafted what two three right? Three three last year was her Russell Wilson average thirty six yards a game running the football giving you that nice baseline. He is averaging eleven yards a game. Poof goodbye. The baseline is gone. K? I looked at some more numbers with Russell Wilson. We've talked about, you know, Jason you mentioned like sometimes they hit these long bomb passes. And it just makes them more efficient Willeke has been more efficient in terms of touchdowns this year. But that scares me it does not make me feel better thirty four passing attempts to game last year. He's down to twenty six game this year, Doug Baldwin just came out and talked about the fact that looked their pathway to success in winning is on the ground. It's Chris Carson and Mike Davis. It's the Brian Schottenheimer haunts, your soul offense, and it. It's gonna hurt fantasy owners thirty four past the tips to game last year down to twenty six that's eight fewer per game. He throwing a touchdown every eleven passes this year last year, it was one per sixteen which is so he's saying do with the touchdowns, but his career average is one in every seventeen which means he's he's outperforming efficiency wise, his career touchdown totals. They want to run the. Football. A does not mean you're not going to get the bomb today. Vid. More are Tyler Lockett. But right now Russell walks in. Russell Wilson is functioning at an offense that doesn't want to throw the football as much does not wanna put him in a position to run the football himself. And he does not have Doug Baldwin healthy as a target monster. As a as a crutch for these situations. So to me we've seen enough this year to tell me that if you go throw the name out there for the namesake, you're in trouble. If you throw it out in a good matchup. Maybe that's a different story. Yeah. I agree that the the thing that is really spooky here is that mustache you his his my mustache. The the scary issue with Russell Wilson is in fact that they have changed to be a rushing team. He's not getting the opportunities. The only thing I'll point out on the hopeful side is we've seen him have a bad. I have seen. Bright several years and catch fire in the second half. And of course, he was you know, with a hobble Doug Baldwin. We hope he's getting healthier. But I would say the biggest piece. Dick's is of it's funny last year. You look still be good is what you're saying twenty first in the league in rushing attempts last season number one this year number one as a team as a t thirty more than the Rams, right? You see the Rams I feel like they they wanted to clock out over the last three quarters with girly but Seattle and over the last three games. Seattle's average thirty seven rushing attempts game. That's a lot. Yeah. That's a lot. So that's my that's my haunt. I think you're going to be haunted by the name because it's just a big name expect more things speaking of rushing and big names the running back position. Well, I am personally going to be haunt Jared Goff by Adrian Peterson. And here's why the real deficiencies hundred by Jared. I am haunted by Adrian Peterson. Because I did not believe my sees. Long rankings will be haunted by Adrian Peterson. Because he was very low my dynasty team that I tried and tried and tried and tried today to trade for Adrian Peterson was not able use watched. I did because I feel like in a dynasty. I was hoping you could buy cheap as an elderly gentleman. And I believe that the rest of the season Adrian Peterson is going to be one of two things injured in which case he's going to haunt you or an Rb one. We've wow, do you know that so far on the season? Adrian Peterson is currently on pace for an astounding one thousand six hundred eighty seven all purpose yards with double digit touchdowns. And we're halfway through the season. He has been great. He has done it back to back to back weeks with massive carry counts. The Washington Redskin. Are leading the division. And it's not on the back of Alex Smith. It's on the sturdy shoulders Adrian Peterson for under two hundred yards in Washington is fourth. And they league in rushing attempts per game. I this this is a question where it's not who who's going to haunt you. This is who's gonna haunt me? Adrian Peterson is haunting me right now and maybe in this Holloway hall holiday seasons. Halloween season the Halloween and holiday kind of merge there became a Holloway. Well, that's the thing is that I was leading toward back to you as the fantasy reaper thing. And maybe maybe it could be rescued by the reaper because I feel like. Dr Adrian Peterson will haunt my season. Wow. Well, well, you know. He look he he wants to prove everybody wrong. Right generational guy that you know, when you've got Emmett Smith type of player, the not just like, oh, he's really great. But this is truly one of the running backs of the era. You know, Adrian Peter's they can play into their later years. I've seen it with other guys like this. And he's clearly shown it. No, it's time for my aunt. You may have moved on to soon. Wow. Can't he go today? Rich. Oh. Sang's man, wait. So you're heat soon up. You're a fan of golden Jones, and they're going to haunt owners. Let them go. Yes. I get it. You're probably quaking in your boots the past two weeks when he saw a combined three targets for three receptions. I don't blame you things. We're not looking splendid for kindergarten. But now golden Tate is gone. We talked about it. Twenty seven percent of the passes for Matthew Stafford are up for grabs. Matt Stafford is on pace for for forty four hundred yards and thirty two touchdowns in the first few weeks before kindergarten. They had vanished. He was averaging over five or sections of game over eighty receiving yards. A game about a half a touchtone last year Marvin Jones was a wide receiver one with over eleven hundred yards. Golden tate. Last year ninety receptions over thousand yards mean, it's it is happening. It is going to happen for Kennedy and Marvin Jones, I think both are locked into that wide receiver to who's gonna be the huge beneficiary every single week. I think that will go back and forth. But now there is not that third option to take away from Jones and golladay. They are a passing team. I know the attempts had kind of come down a little bit. When Carrie Johnson was having massive success Johnson's also a huge. Yeah. He's added faster for from gold take going away. But I am so pumped for the sex, man. Kenny G and for Marvin Jones moving forward if you moved on. I'm gonna haunt you. It's going to haunt you. I'm sorry. We all we've all had these things happen. You trade a player. And then a situation improves overnight anywheres fantasy literally in the middle yesterday of trying to trade either. Doug Baltimore of jobs going back and forth on a dynasty league. In almost traded away. Way Marvin Jones seconds before that trade Baldwin with Baldwin here. Head a trade earlier last week where I was moving some pieces to try and get Brandin cooks to stack my starting roster. And I was offering the other team either Geronimo or Marvin Jones, you can grab whichever one you want. I don't care. They took Toronto marva Joe's on my band on Mike from the bench right to my flex, man doubt. No doubt. And look that's a huge target share. I'm with you. Would you rather have Kenny golladay or Cortlandt Sutton rest of See's candy golladay and that where I'm out? I love Sutton. But this is Matthew Stafford's pacing for forty four hundred yards. Thirty two touchdowns doing his thing. Yes. It's for Sutton. It's just a projection for kindergarten. We already have seen exactly what he can be if he's getting opportunity, and he's gonna get it. Yeah. It's gonna be fun to watch. It's neat to see. A couple of those situations. Breed opportunity for the younger guy. Right and Ken, Kenny golladay get a chance to flash what I think is elite level size and ability for both players. So let's get into the Thursday night preview. Thursday night breakdown. Now. Coach coach listen you got like this Thursday night matchup. You've got a one in sixteen one in seventeen you've been there. Look if I may say word, you may I know Gruden you're on a long term contract. I know Shanahan the people there, they they like you. But I can promise you my record would be better than this. If you want to improve by at least seven victories over your one win and no more. Look to me. All right. The raiders. It's a good point. I mean, Kyle Santa hence, he's you off the hook entirely this. He's flying under the radar of being having a legit bad. Record do take over new franchise as a head coach for the first time I need to get rid of that starting quarterback. I mean, like just by me an extra year and a half. Like he's had of of like he gets to really hone his head coaching skills without any Warri of you know, he he can't everybody loves him. It's not his fault. But it isn't. I'm one of those. I love him. But when you when you lose your starting running back and you're starting quarterback, and you have the injuries that they've had you get a free pass. And when he was hired John Lynch that was the perspective. It was like this is a multi year Bill. Sure just seeing I mean one in seven though. Games without Jimmy Garoppolo as quarterback. He's one. He's won a game. Yeah. That's because he hasn't had anybody. Look at CJ Beth thirty not even have him in this Thursday night game is questionable the next two up on the depth chart. Our Nick Mullins, this is where you say who. Yeah. Or Tom savage. That's where I was looking. We get some, Tom savage. I mean, and then you got that Breda in this matchup. Look Matt Breda in George Kibble are the only two that I'm glancing at for the San Francisco Giants playing Kittle he's gonna so Cup targets. But it hurts. Kill Beth is not out there. Yes. I would also be willing to look at Goodwin Goodwin. Had a breakway, touch and always has that ability and the raiders defense. They don't have anybody over there. That's going to really scare me. Now, this is dependent upon CJ Beathard being the quarterback CJ Beathard has been able to air it out. Throws a pretty accurate deep ball. So if CJ Beathard is in that, I'm okay flexing on a BI week up. You know, the by Pakalitha a Goodwin type Goodwin. Scored a touchdown every other week. Oh, no. He scored last week. Continue that's gonna guy every other week. And then look the forty Niners are third third. Most rushing yards in the league. Matt Brita was out there for sixteen totes last week. And he's facing an Oakland Raiders defense that is twenty eight in the league in terms of fantasy points allowed to the running back position. And if Beth 'Red whether he's out there or not they're going to lean on the running game. Can you breathe you can play? Right. That's what I was gonna ask is the matchup is UC. Matt Brita is is actually good. But he goes down every single week. Yeah. Any you saw the hit the hit points depleting rapidly with every single carry this past week. Yes. But every single running back in the league can go down if you have to play map Brita. He's he's close to a must start this week is how I view him much better than a most Sturt most Sturt, you may end up may end up as the Colonel on the bench with the clipboard. Correct. And look the only thing that I'd like to see from Breda. He hasn't caught a pass three weeks. It's got one pass in the last four weeks. And I know he's been in and out of the lineup bizarre for bathroom. But no pass catches from Breda last week, though, a number of carries and all indications are that he's okay raiders gave up forty two fantasy points to the colts our BBC last week. So there's an opportunity there on the other side of the ball. Jason you talked about streaming Derek Carr. It looks pretty nice. I mean, the forty Niners defense is twenty fifth in the league in terms of fancy points allowed. Since the quarterback position. Carla good last week. Doug, Martin generous chard I think you can start both of those guys if I had to pick one this week. It would actually be cramps. Oh, no holiday spirit is coming for your children on Christmas. Gobble, gobble on eat them. Because this isn't a game that I expect the raiders to be trailing in need to throw the ball is quite as much in the Czech down situation where I think Jalen restart excels. I'm totally fine starting restart. He'll get five or six receptions. I just don't think it's one of those where you know, like last week the colts got out to a good start. And then you you've got to be passing a little bit more. I do still obviously like their car. He was my streamer of the week. I think Beth third being out. There is gonna help both sides because you wanna competitive game retards not catching eight passes if the raiders defense scores on Nick Mullins. Tom savage, agreed of savage is the quarterback, then their car becomes much less of a desired streaming candidate. Because while he could still get off to a good start against this forty Niners defense, he won't have to end. It'll be moly. It'd be Mullins by the way. I mean, if if Beth RDS out it'll be more question if you're gonna play if you're gonna stream the Oakland defense, they are not getting the quarterback there. The fewest sacks in the league. They are allowing the second most points per game in the league thirty one points. Oakland's defense against this guy that you've known that the vast majority of our audience is never heard of are you interested? I am not and Jason you can speak for your own perspective. I looked into this earlier today. I'm not interested. They have not done. Look most defenses have had in opportunistic game or two here. They're look at for example, look at the colts against the Buffalo Bills. The colts defense was just an absolute trash bag. Then you put the right match up in front of him in their top scoring defense of the week. It's worked both directions. Though, the bears were the best defense in football. And they face Brock Osweiler and ended up in a in a bad situation. So what I I wanna I wanna put myself in the best position to put pallet matched up with matchup. And if you can't do it outside of Oakland. Okay. Then you're stuck. But if you can I'm not looking at it like, it's a guarantee. Right. They're going to run the football. They've been five carry on the ground. Oakland stinks defending the run. It doesn't mean for the forty Niners can't win this. Game because Oakland, thanks. Yeah. I'm not all that interested as well. When you look at the season totals of what the forty Niners giving up DST's. It looks great. They're one of the worst out there. But most they've had a couple monster games where they've given up a ton of points. It's really skyrocketing them to look like a terrible team and those were against the Los Angeles Rams the Minnesota Vikings and the cardinals all three have decent defenses. I'm hoping that maybe the hometown cardinals can dress up as a real NFL team the rest of the oh that'd be such a rally for Halloween treat, right? But that is it there on by. Yeah. Making the they're not gonna lose strip. There's no chance. So hope you enjoyed the show. And if you're not listening or watching I should say on YouTube, you might want to check it out.

I'm your host Jenny Taft this podcast is a condensed version of today's episode of undisputed season everything that you hope to accomplish is riding on the right arm of that guy if you think you can go anywhere I don't care if you got Sammy Watkins why would you put him in harm's way by asking him to run the quarterbacks me and I know everybody say we're Shannon but he didn't hurt his ankle well let me tell you something I've had ankle injuries when you have to practice on Wednesday and then play again on Sunday and if you remember he got his stepped on several times against colts that Sunday night game so that injury has really never heal from week one at least three weeks shannon is Andy Reid to blame for calling this QB sneak Yes tweeted give us this coaching move what's the minimum we'll skip you can't put this kid in harm's way and he is smarter than that it does Denver if you can't beat Denver and re-keeled whatever else you got everything that you want that you hope to accomplish is based on fifteen and his health they say three weeks hopefully in what I had my first ankle injury in nineteen ninety-three guess what ahead to have off season Sergio skip my right knee you know why because all I deal with compensate because once he hurt his neck guess what they never did again the never ran a quarterback sneak on thirty one thousand one you have running backs I can skip embarrassment or you're old franchise at home on that stay that was hard for me to watch okay now back to your premise I can't quarterback has been injured nursing a ankle injury since week one he heard it in Jacksonville and it hadn't gotten any better because skip is hard like when you get an injury is hard to heal the injury any quarterback ever getting hurt on a quarterback sneak in my time I googled it and found that Tom Savage who's no longer in football in if it's the AFC championship game if it's the super bowl or if it's to get your team to win a game skip I got no problem with that skip this seven game his few starts for the Houston Texans did suffer a concussion on a quarterback sneak in so I looked at the play and it opened up so quickly that he was a two hundred times in his career Tom Brady has willfully willingly run the quarterback sneak that he loves so much it's his pet play is favorite play and just a week ago on this same Fox stage the big Thursday night stage would you believe Tom Brady L. you how much I disagree with your premise. Here's why I started covering this game pro football back in the mid seventies when I covered ten states you get the ball back and you're driving again skill why you don't need you don't you don't put the kid at risk in a game of this is means nothing very well when he was the adviser and chief for the forty niners so I've been around a lot of pro football a lot of great minds I cannot remember ever that one freakish now to this play who is the greatest quarterback sneaker of all time this this isn't even close sneaks Tom Brady just you just crashing headlong into the pile so after that Game Julian Element called Tom Brady the goat of quarterback snakes he's the goat of goats we know that but that's how much he loves that play and how successful he's often been on that play ran five quarterback sneaks that night five and guess what he scored twice on quarterback sneaks just for the record could we see these quarterbacks insurers dolphins for the Miami Herald Chuck Knox's Rams then it was the cowboys of Tom Landry Jimmy Johnson and then I got to know bill I bet you didn't need to take yes I understand that there are risks involved in football but unnecessary risk is what you try to avoid so so just for the record you did pick Denver to win a pig Denver to win March Lara th pick Denver so everybody on undisputed pick Denver I think ginny actually they're going to win this game I totally disagree with the call I don't know why you would put him in harm's way in a regular season game is unnecessary risks all the way the game was going skip they went out and scored then we got up early you follow up you get a lead they don't do anything you take you kick the field goal so this is the quarterback they you say protects himself like no other quarterback is ever protected himself in the history of football am I right level of desperation in a big division game on Thursday night football so I don't think he was just Denver it looked like just Denver last night is that was all time eighty I tweet that all the time greatest quarterback sneaker ever Tom Brady has run the quarterback sneak it's hard to count them but it's it's over they even created the Tom Brady rule after what happened him Bernard Pollard first game two thousand eight Pollard fell into his legs as they were there's different it's not let me finish so this is the guy who gets rid of the ball quicker than anybody's ever gotten rid of the ball to protect himself he's forty two years harm's way because he's already on record saying I wanNA play until I'm forty five but I'm still sneaking like mad I'm gonNA sneak because I know how planet after he got rid of the football and they said you can't do that anymore so he's completely protected and the last thing in the World Tom Brady wants to do is put himself in any quarterback sneak I picked the whole I know it because we have studied the tape and we know where the vulnerability is in the defense and I- duck old in Iran five quarterback sneaks in the same game one week ago on Thursday night football and he he's so overprotected by the referees as you say doc that there was actually a big hole there so he just kept going with his head up in just then hid helmets with the linebacker had on who had a little full Epstein so I did you gotta stepped on again I think it was week four to Balazs back yet yeah we four and so here we are again no no no no no you can't do that so I understand the ankle injury are you kidding me still stop its second hold on just a second I got you. Tom Brady had a caffeine and Tom Brady can't throw any football all right so he is still quarterback sneaking with a half injury that was so bad they had to sign a third quarterback they re risk there's no risk okay if you take off running I got you a measure question if there's no risk why don't people play with ACL's torn ACL's there's field you might be able to sell overcompensation to me you might we're left ankle leads to write me but do you know what the odds are on a dislocated there was so bad we'll he did he was not practicing what did we say why did they go. Get Cody Kessler Hall of Famer Tony They got to throw footballs in practice out September into early October he could not practice because of a calf injury widely reported in New England so help me going to fall on top of you but apparently Tom Brady believes that's not very risky play because I think he thinks there's no risk in the play the measure question quarterback sneak dating to high school football at the turn of the century you got skip that's not the point you you put the situation that he took it unnecessary the place that the head coach well if Andy call the play or Eric B enemy office coordinator Andy Call the Okay well I fought Andy Okay quickly and I- leg dry forward and I- burrow under the Pile Lotta bodies are gonNA fall on top of you but they're not going very fast right right Maupin's but the three of US said rendered Denver Denver so Patrick Mahomes and company had just lost two straight home games there was the home does that has no bearing Tom Brady superhuman no do you not say that he's the most overprotected quarterback in the history of football. I believe all quarterbacks everything was sure it's it's the Fr- most freaky injury I have ever seen because it looks like to me that Derek Wolfe who's sort of the left defensive and if you look at the defense he sort of fall sideways against his leg as he's falling down I still don't know how that dislocates a knee it's this freakish an injury again dispatching the homes have a bad injury no skip the guy had skipped you saw the man hurt he left the game in Jacksonville you see him step they stepped on his ankle and had knee on a quarterback sneak billions to one because you know what it's never happened in the history of football you can find a dislocated knee on any as I've ever seen on a football field it's virtually impossible but apparently it did happen because we saw the doctor to sort of pop it back into place mhm Tom Brady partially separated left shoulder. Okay running quarterbacks me okay he doesn't have a partially Patrick he's thanks to Tom Brady. Tom Brady is not injured if Tom Brady was injured if Tom Brady had an injured shoulder they're not running quarterback sneak through danger here and just because you have an ankle injuries to stop it everything you believe it okay but if you're running full speed if he's scrambling down the so how can you condemn Andy Reid for calling a play that is Tom Brady's pet play at age eighty two there you go again just that's not what I believe that Andy Reid put Patrick Mahomes at risk he made him take unnecessary risks skip bears and you saw him hobbling he's been toppling Zia truly believe that the ankle injury led to the dislocated knee on a quarterback sneak skip I believe dolls hard that he doesn't quite get the exchange he doesn't get the handle on the football and every once in a while you see it go loose into the pile and the other team covers you also see demichele behind you or let's say Brandon bolden behind you why wouldn't you just hand it off to them and let them get the half yard or the one yard touchdown why does he do that because yes okay well moving around just fine last night I saw him he's just fine he was stepping into his role he went ten out of eleven he completed ten out of eleven why would he do it more than any quarterback is ever no one's ever snaked as many times as Tom Brady so why would he do it when obviously if you have there's also risk in the exchange because sometimes on a quick hitter at the goal line because it's Ben Am that you turn quickly and because the back is hitting the whole risk you can't tear it anymore it's already torn okay but you can't move while you can't operate they always play okay okay so what I don't even know what your point when you step on the football game I got that was no unnecessary risk one last point on Tom Brady why would he take quote unquote unnecessary risk five times overprotected and they set the rules and that's why you see the guys wanting to play so much longer but skip Tom Brady does not have an injury well he did others Tom Brady's play hey why would Tom Brady still why would he sneak five times at age forty two against the New York giants what Tom Brady does in differently than the Patriots do I don't see that at all it looks pretty cut and dry audie brady is that injured Patrick Mahomes with injured what calf or ankle which is worse I'll go calf every time because if your calf goes out completely you cannot play pro football what you can with a bombing quarterbacks tried to get the ball and they fumbled on the quarterback sneak okay but but that's only because sometimes they try to do the over the top which Tom Brady never tries to go the homes simply sending him out there that's risky to me if you say he's so hurt that he shouldn't be in the game because he's risking a knee dislocation on overcompensation takes on a lot of risk as a real live football player by running quarterbacks snakes because you say he plays a game nobody else's playing where he's untouched so he's actually a quarterback sneak yes if Tom Brady had an ankle injury then he's he would run all kinds of quarterbacks there's no jeopardy there okay but you don't put the guy at an unnecessary risk if you if you want to disagree and say but you make everything about Tom Tom he just simply the a structural damage to the knee and Teddy Bridgewater career was threatened by what started with what they call Patella dislocation so it's the KNEECAP is picture so how bad could this be because all I do know if I look back into history teddy bridgewater at the end of a practice on August thirtieth twenty why would you even start him last night against the Denver that you say they should beat you you covered the game for too long this you covered the game you've seen the guys go out there points on a quarterback sneak with a tornado cl's align with me why did I think it's zero. Why didn't Tom Brady played without towards ACL my point is Andy Reid put him at an unskilled if he gets any diesel cases me that's the risk that sixteen for the Vikings had a dislocated knee and guess what else was going on inside that knee it also toward the ACL and it did all kinds booy that's what could have happened he coulda handed it to the ball back because they did it twice last night guy there's to me far more risk of simply planes welcoming the contact you he's risking a knee dislocation at the goal line up stop you being so disenchanted with quarterbacks taken the Draw Bang but he put him at another necessarily risk because he didn't have to do that he could have handed about shady McCoy he could have handled the ball to one of the ways there's no risk there is a risk when you play with the injury and you try to avoid unnecessary risk okay see the problem that I have with you is that you want to compare yeah because there's no video of it that I know of so he's back the plant standard book in it just goes and everything goes because if the KNEECAP does dislocate which is done whatever the damage so both ESPN and NFL DOT com reporting three weeks ish sort of like it's going to be at least that much is not I'm sorry the third quarterback because they didn't want the backup taking all the reps and all the back rest stop it skills there's no and everything and it was over okay hopefully it doesn't seem to be that that extent they'll get the MR saying a minimum of three weeks there's going to be interesting Tom Brady was not being this is like a new race everything Tom Brady Tom Brady is all time he's historically he's transcendently great it can take other things with so now we don't know what we just know that he started limping off the field with help and then he started to walk but by making payments fast and easy wherever whenever the only thing left figure out is where would you like to be visa everywhere you WanNa be I disagree I just played on ankles and I know what happens and I know okay so here's the point now we get to the I agree with that and I do respect Matt Moore as a quality backup a Brian Hoyer type of backup he won't choke he will play with whatever more depending on what we find out right so three weeks you pick this team to win the Super Bowl what would you do now what would you stick with Matt Moore a quarterback you need somebody that's been in your system and here understands your terminology I don't think you can go get off the street and run on offense I really don't and have success I'm a big scale the quarterback position unlike any other you can go get a receiver off the street you can go get alignment or running back running back talk to and run to the open area choice he can play with because he's he's fifteen and fifteen as a starting quarterback not great not bad right that one year he quarterback the last three games and place a Tanna Hill in Miami latest average do it at forty but if Tom Brady have the partially separated shoulder if the banged up shoulder do you believe Tom Brady would the only point is look I understand football dangerous game and when you step on the field there's a risk that's involved there is a risk but you try to the unknown the playoff field mistake makes the play field is that they tried to go over the top? It's not a dad play being so it is in the Golan Gary so you are admitting that Tom Brady actually the top with the football because there's a lot more danger and go over the top you'll do that on the goal line because what's it breaks the plane play he's bought it yeah he doesn't do that it's he's almost lost his career on the beach and Napoleon McCallum Street the same thing he lost his career he hit another down okay same thing Patella tendonitis dislocation okay arisen and I just believe that enery put him in on this a recipient okay by running the quarterback and I disagree but now the damage open had to give because everything is structurally sound import that kneecap the slaves okay I need to go this way and that way yeah something had to give remember Robert After the game when we saw him in the locker room he was Lindsay he's a little limousine he had a black sleeves unique Thanksgiving for the needed dislocate obviously yeah but the way they run off if the way packing up is different okay but the sneak is it not the chiefs run the you do it ruined practice but in a game yeah stuck with what you have met more is going to have the right to drive this car until Pat Mahomes back YEP ops out he didn't miss some arteries also saying the head it was all and it was a non contact injury so I did he's capable of handling the emotions of the spotlight right but I think the difference is that the thing that mahomes brings to the table that Matt Moore and they did go to the playoff game they played in the very frigid cold up in Pittsburgh and he didn't play well needn't play right but at least he started a playoff team so at least he's I skipped I think both defenses are really disappointed in the way they've been playing this year I thought the Eagles would be much better at I know you Joe Flacco last night he woke up this morning sore and we should certainly also congratulate India read on his two hundredth career win the winner claim sole possession of first place in the NFC Shannon who wins this one Sunday night a really expect there to be a lot of points on both oh at quarterback because he's always been a regular season disaster waiting to happen I think he holds the record for single digit. QBR Games because he had an eight the way the cowboys left off last year they would pick right up and they did for the first three Games I'm GonNa take the Eagles and the close ballgame but I believe it's GonNa be defense isn't that good in now you lose the element of that off Yup I got it so they gotta go they got packers son Nick Sunday night at home it was a nice throw he led him he dropped it right down the chimney it was it was good so he's capable of making the plays that develop right before right skip people don't fear that offense yeah that defense is not what you saw last night bathroom pours Broncos off line in poor play by the quarterback that Patrick's went for seventy six ers will why did Matt Moore's go from one seventeen 'cause fifty seven of them went to Tyreek on that cross and up and you went for thirty six and Freeman went for thirty five so something good was going on with the Kansas City defense right and I don't know what would possess me to pick a team with Joe fluker high scoring ballgame Eagles have the number to rush defense but they're terrible in pass coverage I'm GonNa say the Eagles Win Thirty two twenty seven skips cowboys or two and a half point favorites at Gerry world against the division rival Eagles according to Fox bet talk you know obviously but again last night both of them completed tin passes each both mahomes more after and Matt Moore's went for one hundred seventy HBO glad to have you back well there it is again well it seemed like the Denver Broncos were back at least for two games and now they're two and five ballgame and I got the eagles winning close ballgame but a high scoring ballgame I got the Eagles thirty twenty seven so for once on this the Vikings at home they go to Tennessee fifty fifty and then they got the chargers in Mexico City on a group Monday night you know they can you well could be right for once I have very very very little faith in picking the cowboys to win because I'll be the first to admit knowing what I know about pro football really about any sport these are very very bad signs game even at home I just don't love this game for the Dallas cowboys in it's harder and harder to have faith in them Obama Tennessee be Tennessee beat why leave or not I don't know it's that kind of league speaking of so line nine sacks for when a team that I believe could win the NFC and get to the super bowl in its last two games fell behind thirty one to three at home so he plays in these games and I rave last year you even got caught up a little bit and Jalen Smith and Wolf Hunter not a single one starting or contract expectations thank you thank you starting with Marcus Lawrence who is no longer demarcus Lawrence the dynamic duo who were changing games literally changing games taking over games sideline to sideline haven't seen him lately and the right tackle for the Denver broncos are terrible okay Joe flacco is a statue that's why Bagnall Blissett night but everybody said they're going to run all over the chiefs in Philip Lindsay and shutdown Russell Wilson and company in a playoff game later last year not one player on that defense has lived up to preseason expectations of these four they could they could lose four out of four they could they could yeah well so I wish Patrick Mahomes in twenty one to three on the road to a jets team that was bad sign bad sign you've been killing the defense and you know what it looked pretty good no skill that's Bronco's that's not they're not going to skip the cheapest isn't good Garrett Bowles left tackle album this then went is taking care of the football deck has six interception wins has three and I believe the eagles defense will make one play late in the ball game that will be the difference in Oh I don't know I'm not even sure they're out there now not that this really matters I'm down to starting quarterback excuse me cornerbacks because there's no d. he's playing no d. also he's just Marcus Lawrence and he got one hundred million dollars and he's on the most wanted list because I barely Alshon is back in going great guns in Galore he drops too many balls but he's also very dangerous and you can get behind you so but when it comes to injuries he's not like the mentally toughest guy and I'm not I'm not saying he he's just a deeper thinker and I think he really value I'm going to say it again not one player on my defense the same defense that shutdown drew brees and company late last year Oh Nell Carson wentz still has Gertz one one of the best tight ends and football I mean you can make a case he's right there with that guy we saw last night right and not play in the truth is I don't even know if that really matters because they haven't been very good anyway so maybe throw throw the backups Barbara Jones stepped off a cliff skipped hamstring issues and once Sam string goes you can just forget about talking about Byron Jones Anthony Brown and almost certainly because they haven't practiced they will your plantar fasciitis to a really bad ankle to a deep thigh bruise and he said yesterday he actually hurt the against Green Bay really nobody knew totally agree what he was last year flip around in my offense Amari Cooper I love he changed life in Dallas he'll give you and he did beat this team twice last year in the last game we saw him against the Eagles and it was at Gerry world in the fourth quarter and overtime doc one last time because he's all I got I still believe my quarterback I trust my quarterback he is a Gamer he is a baller and whatever he's got continued to tell you two hundred and forty three passing yards fourth quarter and overtime three touchdowns no interceptions so does he feel fairly comfortable against a pass defense he's his body and so he's not one to say I'm going to run through that brick wall and risk the risk of he's the guy I'm not going to overcompensate so he's gone from when it comes to my cowboys I'm barely claiming him at this other to barely for once a little bit today Do I trust him to be Amari I do not I'm sorry in Randall Cobb has a back injury and he still hasn't practice on pretty sure he's not gonNA play and alternative was not created equal and I think the one the one thing that wins has done a better job this year than what is normally that doing a better your coach Doug prediction right out of the box on Monday maybe smarting a little bit off their loss at Minnesota maybe a little thin skinned collins in yet do I am I sure I'm not sure so I just can't try to make a case make a case I can't I'm going to defend my quarter. Fourteenth years is ranked sixteenth so so maybe that's a coin flip right so what does it bring me to Ezekiel Elliott could he be could they finally just who got pro football focus still says that my team is the fourth best team in pro football I don't know how but they can just fight with their analytics it is given up the twenty ninth most yards I assume he does so to your point about higher scoring yeah probably so what what else do I have to just barely and I wish you pick well because that's it's being threatened but the good news last night while the news the good news was the defense showed up in ways you tonight they still say my offense they ranked number one not sure how but they do defensively they don't love my defenses ranked he said he didn't communicate well enough with the training staff and so he went out for warm ups at jets and he's thinking I don't even feel like I can run today sensitive he flat out guaranteed and he tried to backtrack a but he guarantee to win we're going to go down there and win the football game so God knows I paid linemen they have gotten whip starting by your saints they whipped at the line of scrimmage all too often Zeke can't even get out of the starting blocks half the time depend on your coach to be the reason my team somehow rises he's motivated you guys that's all I got was seriously that their manhood got number one run defense in pro football so do you think Zeke's GonNa break out against the eagles I don't so I don't even have that to lean back like oh last-gasp they can just he tried and he caught one ball for three yards and he just said hey I can't do this anymore and he's out of the game well he says he's going to try to to practice coach can't motivate my team God knows he's not GonNa fix it not he not gonNA shake it up there's not going to be shocking lineup changes or strategic changes so I'm going to have to he had ten runs against the jets that went for one yard or fewer and there's really no place to go so all I know is that's a big advantage in this game for Carson Wentz in speaking of my quarterback the two tackles of tried to practice the left tackle right tackle obviously ty Smith Okay we give up we're going to hand it to him forty times and try to slow the game down right as we've seen against Patrick Mahomes the eagles have the three on a walk off by my man Brett Maher I need to be my man this time because he'll hit sixty two yards but then he misses thirty they night football so they're going to say Okay Doug EP watch this this is who we are this is who we used to be in Lord I don't even know that but I do think they love to play against this team and I do believe this team will bring out whatever the best is in my team and so go some crazy in I don't have a scores highs years I think there's going to be turnovers back and forth I'm going Dallas Twenty Four philly twenty three Dallas and I can't do it on paper I can't justify it sorry with those two defenses I just think that's GonNa get scored metal love either some point like last night I think the chiefs they got sick and tired of hearing how bad they were in so they rose up last night on the big stage they said this is doubt because you know what I believe if we could put him on a lie detector right now he would say we're GONNA kick their ass and believe it like believe it heart and soul like haven't senior urgency I haven't seen anything but when I watched phillies front seven it's pretty good oh yeah it can be very good call seven was Damian Lillard with forty one percent of the vote Steph curry followed with thirty seven percent Lebron rounded out the top three with only fifteen last night and he was horrendously bad because I was just in Denver last year I know you all you all been oldest boggling the two point five so there's The bandwagon is rolling for the Eagles and I get it because I fear it's going to run over me told you all I got going is the what exactly you know murderer's row either yeah so my biggest fear is going to have to come in here on Monday and say how `Bout Them Eagles that's what I'm GonNa have to panel to twenty one and maybe you'll start doing this all day I'm not sure that's going to happen so where does that leave me the point spreads starts to fall because it opened at three announced tasing Garrett is feeling the pressure in-duct Prescott had some strong words for his teammates this week as well encouraging folks to prepare more prepared better so we'll see if that has any two three and four and lose four in a row it's going to be really hard for me to hang on even though they'll only be a game back in the division if they win it would it be a spring ah but I will say this I like phillies front seven more than I liked Dallas is front seven because I haven't seen any live I haven't seen any energy fact garage. NBA Dot com releasing their annual general managers poll when asked who is the best leader metrics okay but I think they were thinking that ties me at the lower colleague mark who they do so they say the Eagles are the ninth best so forth the Unsung hero this game was dougie prediction maybe two more pigs by that could be he's actually got three picks to Carson we're going to be starting with this game that's all I got I'm cleaning just barely to this because I'm about to fall off the cliff back for backwards and if they lose this game to fall think about the eagles are GonNa have some special yeah well you got me on the run and I'm almost ready to give up but not quite go keep you on the ruin too because maybe the world of him I think he's a superstar I thought he was a superstar before he got the credit that he deserved because you watch him play you understand he can do it all can dribble can shoot take you off the bounce like this move we felt it can make the team better but the moment of player says you know I want to get out of here because I wanna go somewhere else because I want to win and be better that's a problem everything and I think he's genuinely good I really do think he's genuine good guy but they need to stop this you know the general manager of a mad about about what transpired it just if they don't get the quarterback on the ground quarterback halftime to throw a ball down the field is that back four that leaves a lot to be desired your bag zoom Lebron is an agent of Clutch Rich Paul is also Anthony Davis they tried to put together this what happened now so you think their premises I Anthony Davis from the PELICANS how everybody was going to say no we'll see what happens anytime the Lebron is involved with something they automatically strategically like watch the tape we'll we'll go up and down the field on them all day long I'm sure he told his dad in the meeting right and my offensive line all those Augean upset about this why Lebron you do make some very good points on this so I'm going to go bigger picture here stanton the vote Shannon how much of a problem you got with this one they need to stop it among the players I think Lebron would win it I do believe that you cover the league level of respect I think the if in fact a poll taken of all NBA players who's the most popular player among you guys in this league on them that just creates drama on a nightly basis he thrives on it others can't because it's just too much and we've seen it especially once he left Dwayne oh I thought was the sort of bedrock cornerstone leader of the heat franchise and taught Lebron a lot about how to handle your business as a leader last year because every year they've taken this poll Lebron James has been voted the best leader hasn't really bad leader but you know what happened what happened last just get bailiffs anthony that he alienated all those kids in the locker room her now playing for your team yes hey an what what are we seeing skip we see that Lebron James before and Lebron was becoming a leader and then he left Wayne to go home again and it was a struggle in Kyri never bought completely ames's on your roster and don't like that now they said you know what I'm happy here it if somebody wants to come join Lincoln with me I'm good that's fine this this is all about is hard for me to believe a lead all of a sudden abroad is not the leaders have been voted the best leader for the last eight nine ten years goes developed little sort of big brother relationships with you've never heard him say ill word about any bio no that's true I give you all that now we get to the leadership question uh finals fourth straight finals the Miami calls back goals again and now all of a sudden this is all about the Anthony Davis trade this is all about the power that you free ages now I am sure that I don't think Lebron is a great leader and I'll tell you why there's just too much drama going he has a force field a and I was not aware I was just taking this poll just in and of itself but if I had voted in the previous polls in which he was voted you say the best spies Michael Jordan but they feared but in this case Lebron just goes out of his way to know everybody to complement everybody kids coming up he wants to has been trading some of these guys says I won't even before my contract look these gentlemen is upset about thing is a good guy this is not a shot at dame but I'm just telling you what do you worry about what's called yeah no I would call a script away with Pat Davis thing came out and everybody was talking about how it played on the locker room. I can't believe that Lebron James would do that to have locker room he they blame him there's a tremendous level of just likability because he goes out of his way to fraternize with the opposition which is the opposite of Michael Jordan because a lot of guys would voter for I don't know who else I would vote for I'd have to really think hard about Damian maybe I'm not sure about staff I'm not sure but Lebron we know what happened he finally said I got now he wants to make up with him but what do you say Lebron when he'd because he thought just being the best player liked see Lebron forcing the GM every year we're going for every year eight no rebuilding ain't no you know the process there is none of that Lebron freezes didn't move like this Lebron James and power phrases to say you know what one out leave demand trae requested trade and Geos ardor with me now it didn't at that moment there's no pressure tackling so I'm gonNA say with meaning walk off twenty four to twenty this is three because they do that don't do that he has six Levin touchdowns six picks high guy had thirteen and three yeah g-o-v like to hear that like here I blow to the soul because now they got no problem train you get we make the team better we passive aggressive social media posts where you say what is this cryptic it's like are you criticizing or you blame deflecting made you delete her but he didn't understand not in Kyrie proved to be a very poor league because it's hard so with Lebron there's too much of this talk of of one some unbelievable number of outside the paint jump shots that he rarely gets on that kind of a role outside the paint and then we know what happened with Jr and the blunder ospel Brandon Ingram not real keen on Lebron at this point but here's the point this is the drama king this when he completely up over little six-foot-three Steph curry and it's game over and Lebron winds now they were down one so it's GonNa be sink or swim or miss what about it burn the bridges to all those kids no I don't think so but I don't know Brandon Ingram well well enough he sort of keeps to himself he seemed to take it the most personally so it's to blame deflect because he's very proud to a fault and it's hard to be the leader when you will step up and say it's my fault I'll take all the slings and arrows from the meeting ask sequence unfolded I thought Lebron should've pulled up on Steph and taken the jump shot to win the game he only scored forty eight points to that point forty nine and he had made and everything just unraveled and what happened in the timeout after this occurred Lebron distanced himself from the whole juggling saying Anthony Davis are all these kids don't take Anthony Davis and all y'all can go to New Orleans all of you can ship the whole team out lost me and you're you're going to get sick and tired of me bringing this up but game one or the finals two years back at Oakland they've got him dead to rights and we know how on a podcast just last month who mentored me the most last year would probably Lebron just within pretty much the whole year same team same same hotel I was just with him always I don't need to take anymore because it's already written about it okay so on alienating the kids last year I got no problem with that because he just wanted to win and so he's if an NBA basketball player make two free throws eighty percent career free throw shooter one of Giorgio does that what did I tell you it's Lebron with eleven ballgame Jr got the basketball two feet from the formed around that the best case scenario but what's going to happen is he gonNA forget where he years dribble the ball outside the three point line okay but the better case scenario is Lebron pulls up from the free throw line and shoots a jumper for two and a half minutes as they fall behind seven and it's game over until he finally decides oh I think I'll shoot one now and then he comes into the post game and he's wearing some why they did this you know they're upset because they feel that what he did to his own locker room by alienating those young guys ripping Anthony Davis from the and more than anything in if Lebron really sincerely thought he can win with those guys they would have still been there but a deal is a generational talent all right I got it so do I think Lebron picking up from the greatest Deborah Plate they unskilled they understand this is a business I'm sure they wanted to be with the Lakers but at the end of the day Lebron wants to win when my spurs got rid of Giorgio they traded him for number two I was happy because I told you chill isn't that guy I don't want George Hill shooting free throws for my quote unquote life I don't like him as a player but I don't love him in that situation but I don't put the game in George Hill sans put it in Lebron's hands he did in the end you are a great Solo Act you're you're the best passer in basketball but you are a soldier BEV leader in basketball I don't bleed I do and you know and that's not that's not a sign of poor leadership that's just one to win man I mean just I can be better off with Anthony Davis that's not poor leadership in Lonzo leadership stratosphere with Magic Johnson or Larry Bird or Tim Duncan Hodge was one of the most underrated leaders ever he was the quiet stoic behead on I'm not gonNA give you a layup I'm going to go to the wind you would think okay but this is about we talked about it all cast or something that was at the game but then he said it was that game that he went in and broke his hand against the the Whiteboard so stop stop it does not jr now that Virtuoso. I just don't know you're such drama king it's hard to lead a team because well I gotta finish what happened in overtime Lebron refused to even take a shot for the first two and a half minutes of he's got forty nine points to your point and he refuses to shoot Oh magic goes without the bus get him up out here I need some better players Lebron says I wanNA play peopole loser he'll poor leader no on before the game you get to go to overtime tied you've tied the invincible warriors in the world no no no no no no no no don't don't say that you shoot them at me because I'll take him because I can handle them I don't ever get that from Lebron donated to could you already read about it anyway if it's fault so don't need to blame we're in the NBA had to kind of power that nobody nobody I mean maybe Jordan did but he didn't we'll join and have that okay I'm going to jail he's pouting he's pouting you can't pout. You actually got the best case scenario five to Lebron it'll be battle of the rookie signal callers between Cuyler Murray and Daniel Jones both have two wins the season as starters Danny dimes had an impressive eighteen point comeback in his first start while keiler is top ten in the League for passing yards on the season so shannon not been for that but that's not this generation they didn't have this all right so I hate to go completely historical here but I can't even begin to put Lebron I would never do you say that all the time Michael would never WanNa play with magic what it never done that Ono Larry Bird they wanted to beat them Lincoln's locker room they feel that's all of all these other guys I want out I won't out I'm leaving they blame the wrong for that Okay Oh oh edina is in Timmy Dunkin Mac on the bench and San Antonio maybe this means the spurs will be surprised team of this year it'd be won't play maybe go you know what lamarcus Aldridge all within his hands he made the best play and I live with the decision that he made the best which will pass the ball up on the hill up to go in Klay Thompson says you know what I'm GonNa try question Barry good arm what we're starting to see is that he's starting to run more when the play breaks down and he's getting protected the athleticism is something that we don't even need to discuss with him because obviously get drafted in the first round in baseball you the number one overall pick and put ball athleticism should never be calling the team and he went and sat down the bench from the there he wants to remove hitting away he's saying I don't want to associate with that met the guy getting popcorn accurate which is very important he's GonNa play a most of his games outside and metal Outta metlife now Washington's outside phillies outside reduce unskilled let Timmy Timmy for doing that but that's not what Lebron wanted to Kobe nobody ever not koby career with the Lakers. Nobody criticize Kobe but did not Lebron for taking Max I wish he would if he ever took less than the Max I'm doing with it okay by the way for me skip I'm GonNa Take Jet Daniel Jones because I believe he has I think I just I'm gonNA trust the giants in their higher looking to put the pieces guy great piece already Saquon Evan Ingram which is better I believe every saquon better back David Johnson and there's I don't think in the better athlete than I thought I didn't think he had this kind of mobility didn't know a whole lot about him but I did watch him a few games that do and he didn't show this kind of mobility am one thousand percent sold on cuyler. I'm impressed with Daniel Jones I'm with you I did not see this but give me Kylie it's one of these QB's you think will be the best long-term both quarterback they're shown flashes one-half prototypical size the other really small man Yup Danny Jones had a very good arm he unreason skip he's more prototypical he's made some rookie mistakes because sometimes I think what I'll watch him he leaves the Huddle He's already predetermined I'm throwing the ball here I'm throwing the ball don't play off time right Dhamar Rosen does come playoff time well is always the goal and if you're interested forty six percent GM's predicted it would be the clippers we're going to pay you this and you're gonna like exactly Bron James say what I'm playing a member take less than my value I won't give collar I do he's must see tv to me so let's go back to what you said about Daniel Jones not really recruited out and I think in college you know they tell you the ball in the guy's going to be open for the most part you can diagram plays he's GonNa be open but in the NFL they will force you to read the coverage are times tin going forward we've seen flashes from Danny John even has a new big apple nickname it's

Brain T. Smith Tells Us Why Texans Fans Deserve Better And Also Speaks On The Texans Dysfunction As An Organization

"The to you. I think the sean sounds show continues. Sportstalk seven hundred houston collins. Houston chronicle columnist. Brian t smith. You've heard of here many a times on radio as a guest as well joins us here on sports. Talk seven ninety brian. Welcome in man. tell me why the texans fans deserve better. They're human beings. Let's let's let's let's just start there there. Even beings there sports fan They don't have anything to do with this. They didn't hire jack. Easterby stood by jack easterby. They didn't gift wrap the texans. The kalmyk never dated and get on the plane with comic nair and go higher caserio and ignore the search firm. They didn't trade you andre hopkins peanuts. They've supported this franchise through thick and thin and mostly thin. So of course. Texans fans deserve better than this. You're gonna tell me that you're gonna go to the stadium by the merchandise. Give him the tv ratings. Keep them billionaires all those things and live in mallet. Brian hoyer and tom savage and brock osweiler and david carr and everything you know not being able to beat the patriots Fifty one seven chiefs. You're going to go through all of that. And then your franchise is gonna be dumb enough to to make shawn watson force a trade. They deserve a hell of a lot better than that. Couldn't agree more. Brian t smith joins us. Here on the sean salisbury. Show brian i guess we know the being appears. We know the reasons that the shawn's disgruntled can it be fixed in your mind i would. I would love to say so right i. it's it. A lot of this. Is becoming like the james harden trade it. It hasn't gotten that bad yet. Because he's not playing shawn watson has way too much priming. If there's one thing we know about your shawn watson he's never gonna phone it in. I mean he's going to play until the last play. He'll play with the puncturing long. And take the bus to jacksonville. Just we can play the jaguars out of every one of the texans. I'm used to doing. Jj watt into shawn. Watson will play until he can't play anymore and so it hasn't gotten as ugly harden and there's all sorts of failed in the playoffs year after year ultimately like harden ended up doing when you look at the overall situation the years remaining the power the way it can shift the entire league These these situations are becoming similar. But it hasn't gotten nasty yet right to shawn watson. We'll tweet chris cryptic lyrics and but he's basically allowed his people his agents the people around him to you know get his message out there. Speak for him. Source things to the media leak things to it. That's how it goes. I'm not knocking them. That that's how this game is played. I've been covering this. You know this game. This is how it goes can be fixed. I would love to think so because it's going to be such a damn shame. If he is traded that they had him at the start of his prime locked up just five months ago one hundred percent one hundred ten percent committed to this franchise and then he he says i want out but everything has been reported. This far everything. I continue to hear everything. The chronicle continue to report. And you've also seen any. Espn is that he truly wants out. He's done with the texans. And if it's it's not it's not a roster sean. it's not like it's not harden and hey we're not good enough about callum mcnair. It's about jack easterby. It's about the organization. He he feels and i. I believe the people around him feel that this organization broke. Its word broke. Its word of too many players in some ways. He's kind of being used as a test case to say. You know we're just not gonna take this anymore. All right bryan bryan t smith houston. Chronicle joins us brian. Okay in the last twelve months in your mind. We know the dysfunction for years you've mentioned who's the bigger reason for the downfall cal mcnair jack easterby. That's a great. I would love to spend the next hour having fun. Debating that right. I wanna say easter beat right. I've written a lot about it. Used to be everybody's written a lot about easter be easterby easterby easterby. That's the easy hashtag in some ways it's overblown and i keep saying this because it's true he is. He's not the devil Jackie's to be. It's a it's an incredibly nice guy in in many ways to nice friendly too sugary too optimistic to happy. That's part of the problem. Everyone thinks it's fake. But jack used to be has been in the middle of a ton of this and that that goes back to brian gain being fired. That's that's if you want to know in this. When did this really start. It was the firing a brian game and power. That went to bill. O'brien and the power that went to jack easterby. It has a there does bill. O'brien get fired after four games if jack easterby. Isn't jack easterby. I don't think so. I think i think jackie should be was in was in kalmyk nears ear at the start of last season. But ultimately sean and texans fans know this and and the really good texans fans were here before i was in houston who go back to two thousand and two and when the team started. They've never believed in the mcnair. They've never bought in. They've never believed. I've been writing for almost a decade now in the chronicle truly know how to win they they they. Bob wanted to win. It got rough at the end. And bob was dealing with a lot healthwise but bob mcnair wanted to win this team. Got the twelve and four. They had a hell of offensive line at one point. They had a help defense. At one point. They had aaron foster. And andre johnson. There always issues though and ultimately it felt like in some ways that they were holding the texans back the onfield product but the last couple of years. What's going on on. Kirby drive within energy stadium The vitriol the fury that this fan base has for this franchise. It's new york jet slammed. It's cleveland browns. Land it's out. Dave at the end of al davis when it was just absolute dysfunction. He was pulling out a laminating. You know thing to to like it was a high school Science project rip whoever it was lane kiffin or one other one other coaches. That's that's what it's been like times one hundred so much of it is easter ultimately. This falls out the feet of mcnair. he's experienced. He's he's he's he's appeared to be in that he's trusted the wrong people. He doesn't know football all those things. And so i keep saying this. 'cause this is true and now you know i can say i can write it. You guys can save on seven ninety. We can report in the chronicle wouldn't shawn watson halls you out like this and he said i don't wanna be here anymore because basically you know read between the lines you are run so poorly and i don't trust callum mcnair this if if you're going to blame easter your mcnair ultimate callum mcnair because comic nares the one who stood the stood by easterby and callum mcnair is the one who's who's allowed texans to let their fan base down once again. Brian t smith houston chronicle a few more minutes here. On the sean. South with sean. Sports talk seven ninety and brian. Listen i in you. And i both know ten years. From now. The shawn watson impact on a franchise will be far deeper and better than jack easterby. Will we know that. So here's what i don't get and i know we're all trying to figure it out. How can a person or a franchise be so blindfolded and so ignorant and so low. I q commonsense in football. Iq that it's got to this point. How do you as a businessman. I didn't even say football guy. How can you not read the building in the room. How how how do you get to this point of ineptness that it's almost as if you never watched the game or knew how to read a room or locker room. There's an ignorance here that is beyond belief. You just you just you just nailed it and you know like easterby cows a nice friendly guy you would wanna you'd be in your backyard at your barbecue. Chomping on a cheeseburger Maybe drinking duels or something like that you know. And he'll he'll laugh at your jokes that's-that's kalmyk a little probably will talk you very much. He's he's not a a bleep bleep but if he's smart enough and if you're not smart enough and you're not experienced enough that you have to have the right people around you right. Most of the many of the best donors in sports we don't we. Don't sit around and be like robert kraft was such a genius and he put it all together and you draft the tom brady and you know he put the defense together and he cut now. That's bill belichick and the patriots had issues and bill check was on perfect at the start and they had to go through some rough stuff. Those first couple of years but ultimately you hire the right people you let them run your organization and if you have dysfunction if you have an internal nightmare daily pr problems. You fix that sean. They still don't have a pr director and they have been dragged through the mud for months and so that means at the top. They're just not smart enough. They're not running. This is not been reported. Enough janey routes doesn't affect the field product doesn't leave some up doesn't call jamie routes has helped make the mkx mares billions and he's been with this organization since the start and he's on the verge of being out because he doesn't want to deal with jack easterby anymore. So how do you allow this to happen. I really don't know and the only explanation is this is just how how mcnair has run it. I i don't know who can get to him. I think at some point. Just be honest you think at some point janice mcnair would would call him in. It'd be like son. We need to talk right. But i don't know that anyone can do that. And here's the thing ultimately. If the shawn watson leaves and you chose jack easterby shawn watson you'll never be able to live that down the thirty seconds. I got left with you knowing all that. We've just said this team is going to be ignorant enough to trade him. He's going to be playing for somebody else isn't he. He probably will unbeliev a. Here's here's the thing then the spotlight very now. It goes you know. I've always tried to find optimism. Right with the texans nick caserio so nick caserio the texans need daryl morey right now the texas the jeff luneau right now nick. Caserio has got to step up and and there is a way to to to end up with the best hall in. Nfl history. More than the. You know the herschel walker trade or the ricky williams draft trade you. There's a way to do this in quote unquote come back with. Just you know an avalanche and you basically start rebuilding your organization. Time for nick caserio to prove that he deserves this job. Yeah yeah nick. Caserio is under contract now. So don't be afraid to fight back with your owner. That's why you're here. That's why you're getting paid. Don't be afraid to fight your owner over what you're going to get or whether you should trade him at ryan great stuff man this great insight love having you on and appreciate. The passion is always brother. Keep it up. Thanks for joining us. Thank you very much sean. Take care of you to ryan teeth with the houston chronicle. We'll discuss take your call. Seven one three two one two five seven ninety. Yeah the more you hear about the more. You save watson. I'd i'd out too. I love brian's line at the beginning of when you ask them why this texans fans deserve better and he just simply said because they're human beings yes which means that the people that are dealing with and you start to wonder if they are all right or at least decent at times. It's crazy. sports. Talk seven ninety. Were coming right back.

Savage Love Episode 648

"You're listening to the micro version of the savage love cast, WWW dot savage. Love casts dot com. Relationship. Great show in Vancouver this weekend. Thanks to everyone who joined the packed house at Vancouver playhouse for savage. Love live questions were asked questions were answered singer-songwriter. Rachel lark performed a killer sat comedian Corinna Lucas. Well, she is amazing. She brought the mother bucket house mother Buchan down both cream and Rachel will be joining us for savage live in Seattle at the Egyptian theatre a may eleventh other upcoming salvageable dive shows Denver separate Cisco with stormy Daniels. Chicago, Madison, Minneapolis, also with stormy Daniels and more cities, go to savagelovesbeets dot com and click on events for more info and to order tickets. But yeah, that wasn't what I was thinking. Something else happened this weekend guy. What was a cake? We had a giant chocolate cheesecake at the show and Vancouver. The whole audience helped me eat it. I think I'm going to order giant sheet cakes for all my upcoming shows because g cakes they bring people together. But that wasn't in. What was it? Yeah. Right. The Muller report was released. Well, actually, no, the Miller report was not released. No one has seen it. And no one knows exactly. What's in it? And no one even knows how many pages it runs to unlike the star report which started out as an investigation into a real estate deal in Arkansas and wound up being slashed non fiction about the sex life of the Ben sitting democratic president the mullahs report hasn't been released. And if Donald Trump has his way, it may never be released. All we know is Donald Trump's attorney general Bill bar a man who to tact the molar investigation before he was appointed. And whose attack should've disqualified them from serving as attorney general and overseeing the Muller investigation report, blah, blah, blah that man Bill bar sent the letter to congress that essentially says. Yeah, nothing to see here. And I'm so sure there's nothing to see here that I'm not gonna let you see it. Which is unacceptable despite what you may have heard the molar investigation did not exonerate the president on obstruction of Justice charges or any others Muller found evidence of a conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia to swing the election of the mode did not make a determination on obstruction of Justice. Which is what Clinton was impeached for over a blowjob not over a campaign by hostile foreign power to swing an election and put a useful idiot in the Oval Office. And Miller says that that actually happened that hostile foreign power worked to so division between Americans and hacked, the democratic party's emails and attacked Hillary Clinton all in a successful effort to put Donald fucking Trump in the White House. We aren't crazy that all happened. And none of that was okay. Charging Trump with obstruction. The least that he's guilty of Muller left that up to congress. But congress can't make that determination. They can't make that call if they are not given the report which William bar may not give. Give them so. Yeah. Good. Joe in Vancouver this weekend shit show in DC this weekend. It is also incredibly frustrating. So I want to get to your questions instead of thinking about this because thinking about this is gonna make my head below Dominic. Get the last word at least on this subject to Alexandria, Cossio Cortez who tweeted out as horrific as this president is he is a symptom of much deeper problems. He can stay. He can go. He can be impeached or voted out in twenty twenty. But removing Trump will not remove the infrastructure of an entire party that embraced him the dark money that funded him nor the racism he amplified and reanimated in order for us to heal as a nation. We all must pursue the hard work of addressing these root causes a oh see goes on. It's not as easy as voting.

Thirty eight years old in a long term relationship with a wonderful, man. We are super happy together and are building a beautiful life. We have a great sex life, and I feel safe above and secure them in a way that I never thought possible, which is why I'm actually considering living out some fantasies of ours. That I never thought I would feel comfortable actually doing in real life. Specifically he has this fantasy of bringing another man into our sex life and having him have sex with me while my partner watches, and then potentially gets involved as well. And this fantasy of my partners is a really really strong one for him. He says he can't stop thinking about it while we're being sexual and while we're. In the moment. He feels like it's something he really needs and it's a little bit consuming. And so as of now, it's just been something we talk about while we're having sex, but I feel us losing towards the possibility of actually acting on this. So my question is how do we go about doing this in a way that minimizes the risk for hard feelings or even possibly jeopardizing our relationship? Neither of us want to do anything that would jeopardize I- relationship. It wouldn't be worth it to us. So can we do something like this without running the risk of really hurting one another or doing something that we can't take back or is that even possible fantasy of wanting to see your partner with another person sexually. And then there's the reality of seeing your partner with another person's actually the fantasy. Really common has left to names cuckolding. That's this plus humiliation. Staggered vixen hot withing hot husbanding certain kind of swinging people watch their partner. So that people get off on it. But it's not maybe their main thing. This is a common fantasy. Now. It can go wrong. And when it goes wrong, we hear about it. It's just like that prejudice people have about nam inaugurates relationships because every non monogamous relationship with your straight. They've ever heard about fell apart. But that's why you heard about it. The successful open relationships are non monogamous relationships in straight land still to this day by in large for the most part the folks who are non monogamous and straighter closeted. So their friends may know people who are not monogamous, but they may not know they know people who are not monogamous everybody to hear about who had a three way or did a cockatiel seen or attempted poly-amorous. They hear about the relationship when it falls apart. And then they think you can never do that. It's too dangerous. It's too risky. Now, it is risky. Of course. Involving other people in your sex life caries risk, but you can do it successfully. And you can mitigate those risks and with something like this, and it doesn't sound like your partner has any fantasies around humiliation. He wants to see you with someone else. He wants to involve a third person may be involved himself as well. That's more on the hot Weifeng Steig vixen ING end of the spectrum. But there are risks there. You know, he thinks about this. He talks about it a lot maybe even obsesses about it a little bit. But you can't predict how it's gonna feel when you actually see your partner with somebody else. So that burst time you want to minimize what that contact will be before the event he may think he's down for P IV you and some other dude and watching and that may sound really hot him. And then in the moment, he may have a really negative reaction to even pre PI IV. So I would encourage you the first time you do this with somebody else if you bring in another man to take PI. And other really significant to YouTube sexual acts off the menu that first time. Maybe it's just you and him at a bar and you make out with some other dude on the dance floor. See how he feels about. That may be the first time you have somebody home. Maybe it's that guy you met at the bar. It's just oral. It's just rolling around. It's just mutual masturbation, and they'll upgrading in the moment to PI v not to make it hierarchical PI IV doesn't exist on a higher plane and other sexual acts, blah, blah, blah. But no upgrading in the moment. If you guys have agreed going in that it's just gonna be oral or just going to be mutual masturbation that first time you can test the waters, and then have those orgasms and sit with your feelings after the orgasms very important because sometimes people experience post, orgasmic panic and regret, even if it feels right in the moment to wanna go for don't that first time, it is low stakes less emotionally fraud or significant sex acts. And then you check in and see how you feel and then the third or fourth time you. Do this. Maybe then you go for P IV, you can also contain this. If there's a risk of you forming an emotional attachment. This is an out of town or out of time zone pursuit or an on vacation thing and not something that you do at home known. It comes to fulfilling a- fancy like this. If your partner is an into it. If your partner is monogamous and wants to remain monogamous and doesn't feel right about or mostly safer sexually safe having contact with other people. This is a fetish too far. I would put this on the fetish too far category. This isn't something that g g g being good giving in game demands of us. We aren't required to sleep with other people to take the risk inherent in sleeping with other people to satisfy our partners kink. But when it comes to sacks, we have to think beyond guard about our own kink phobia, and sex phobia, you identify, and there are risks here that can be identified that attached to doing this. There are also risks that attached to not doing something. The sex in our culture, the the section and king. Shame our culture. We're all much more comfortable, if we know think about it for a few minutes with the not doing of something sexual. That's always the preferable option. That is the better course, because then you aren't doing that dirty sex thing, and then you aren't taking those risks, but you know, sexual frustration and sexual resentment also pose a risk to a relationship. And if this is really central to your partner's sense, a sexual fulfilment and your otherwise fine with it. If you can figure out to minimize those risks never doing it also presents a kind of risky relationship. People will blow up or sabotage the relationships to get what they want sexually. I say that and people look at me like I'm crazy, and I look around, and I see that happening all day long all the time people will run off and see sex workers, no shade on sex workers to fill fantasy that they are getting fulfilled at home. And then it'll be uncovered in the relationship befall. Part or somebody wants to have that three way. They never got to have in. The can't have it with their part of the with somebody else. People destroy their lives all the time in pursuit of a sexual interest. Now, it's best. I think if two people who are exclusive for monogamously exclusive can have these sexual adventures together and be honest and open with each other about what's possible in the relationship with not possible in the relationship and both are willing to pay that price of admission. You can't have everything that you want. I'm not signing off on that concept either. But it's ideal. If two people can make a good faith effort in the direction of filling all of their partners sexual needs and wants that they can reasonably fulfil. So can you reasonably fulfil? This is this something that you wanna do do you want to take him up on this offer? Do you wanna be with another man in this context where he is enjoying it to where there's something in it for him to it's not just for you. But is there a part of it that is for you that that that appeals to you? And if there is identify those risks, including STI risks figure out how to minimise them. And again, the most significant risk here is that his reaction to the reality of this unfolding in front of him maybe in conflicts to how much the fantasy of it turns him on. He may have very negative reaction in the moment. Which is why that first time the couple of times it needs to be low bore low stakes. Sexual contact. Ideally that first time you'll be fully clothed and out somewhere. And you will let him see you flirt with someone else engages reaction about before you take any further steps toward fulfilling this fantasy hopefully not just for him. But for you to. Holguin my girlfriend, and I have been in an open relationship for the better part of a year and a half and we entered in open relationship. I've always had plans to move to New York at some point. And we were not quite sure of when she was going to come with me, she moved here from New York and she had reservations about uprooting yourself. And while we were doing a show together. She met a guy, and I was super supportive, and they struck up a friendship, and then she went to go visit him, and I was super supportive of that. But then after she came home, they their friendship developed into a relationship of romantic nature, which I was not privy of. We talk about everything else, you know, relationship how we will stick with other people is that our cetera. But this was kind of kept secret until she said, hey, I'm dating this guy. And it wasn't a question of can be exposed. Or poly-amorous? It was I'm dating this guy. And it was a line in the sand and feels like he gets a lot of special privileges that I don't feel like I am by default poly-amorous. But I hate it because I certainly feel like veal, and I don't know how to been up that. I would like her deter behavior at least we can talk about. So I had a question for you. Just listen to your call the special privileges that your girlfriends other boyfriend is getting the you aren't getting the only special privileges are and to be fair things have changed in the weeks that I called you update us. Okay. So since since I called you I kind of expressed to her that like, hey, you get to spend your weekends or whatever with him. And I don't get to contact you because she made it very clear she likes it when I leave her alone, and when his wife leaves kindled on when they're together, but when we're making breakfast, or after we have sex, whatever and she's texting him that made me feel really shitty. It's like she has a boyfriend in her phone all the time along with me. And I just felt very unimportant. And I did let her know that. And she didn't even realize that was affecting me. Okay. So you communicated, do you use your words, are you feeling better about this? I know I am I answering better. I I'll tell you the one thing that I'm kind of stuck in. 'cause we're we're reading a lot of Polly material. And I'm getting it like she was dragging the along Apolo land. I was applied. And I it really hurt. But I'm getting the only thing that sucks now is it was a secret. And if the lying by omission that I'm just still having a lot of trust issues now like their relationship, and I think it's great. But the fact that it was kept a secret for so long. And then an ultimatum was made of I have a 'nother boyfriend now the only answer I had to was. Yes, or no, right. She laid that out at the price of admission for you to remain in the relationship with her that going forward you were going to have to sort of retroactively. Which are stamp of approval is relationship, you know, in fairness to to her, and I'm sure a lot of people out. There are mad at her a lot of people back into poly-amorous. They find themselves arriving at it. And just like you became Polly under duress, you were given this basically an ultimatum that if you want to continue to see me you have to happen. I'm now in this relationship of the person often the person whom issued that ultimate them. You know, they were doing it the way they're supposed to do what they were. Having noncommittal sacks. No relationship. No intimate Handelman, and it just sort of bubbled up, and they caught feelings that they weren't seeking. Yep. And then my God, what are they do? And so they go to their primary partner, and they say, oh, this is the reality now. And I'm sorry about it. But I'm not gonna dump this other person. And so you're gonna have to eat it. And that's terrible. And a lot of people out there probably shouting DTM FA as they listen to you. And they listen to me, but I just know so many people who are happily Polly. Longterm poly relationships primary partners or non hierarchical and the beginning was much like the bidding that you describe one person fucked up did it wrong. Caught feeling they weren't supposed to have didn't terminate that relationship. Didn't try to cauterize that wound and went to their primary partner and said, okay? This is our reality. Now, are you in or are you out, and you know, people who are happy in those relationships going forward stayed in. They went from pugs pollyanna address to happily Polly HP's or whatever. But it took some time. And you know, the question in a moment like that is and the metaphor. I always used with friends who found themselves on a similar circumstance is your partner went and bought a house without telling you about it. And that's a shitty thing to do. That's a major purchase. Right. And you need to you take your partner. That was a shitty thing to do. You shouldn't have done that. Now, let's take a look at the house, and I'm going to decide if I wanna live there, and it might be that the house. They bought is somewhere. You wanna live? If you can separate anger at them having purchased that place without consulting you from the place it self and make an independent assessment of the place. It self is this house appealing to me is this a place. I would have wanted to live if we had negotiated it and how shopping together and if the answer is. Yes. And if your partner isn't in the habit of presenting you as to complete initial tomatoes, and this isn't a pattern, but a rupture, and it's not going to happen again. And you can have a conversation about that. And if your parties apologize to you for impulsivity buying that bucket house, and I'm torturing the metaphor. Now, maybe you can move in there and be happy there. But if you forever gonna angry and resentful about the ultimate him about the data comple- about the purchase of the house without getting go. How something yourself with your partner? If you can never let go of the anger. You're never going to be happy in that house, and you should not move in there with them. Okay. That that makes a lot of sense. I hadn't thought about separating the anger of the ultimate them from actually enjoying the circumstance we're in. Now, do you enjoy the circumstance through now? I do I kind of like the idea because I like commitment. And I I like the idea that you can have multiple commitments for a lot of women in polio. Threw up in relationships. It's riskier out there. If you're just impulsively jumping into bed with two toss Turin, so dick monsters and a lot of women. I think rightfully so aren't comfortable just hooking up with strangers and so works better for a lot of women in opposite. Sex open relationships to have some sort of connection intimacy familiarity or to have one regular other partner, and this guy has a white. So he's not trying to run off with your partner. And so he seems like a safe bet for your wife to have an intimate ongoing connection, and or your wife, your girlfriend your. And it's a really good sign that when you brought up this double standard when you're with him. I'm not supposed to contact you and let you have that time. But when you're with me, there's a steady stream of tax, and she and that immediately opened her eyes to the fact that she was being dense and inconsiderate and taking you for granted. And she stopped right. She changed her behavior. Yes. Yes. She did. These are all going forward. I don't think you're crazy. If you stay with her fit accompli ultimatums demand that you pay the price of admission. I don't think you're crazy to stay with her. This sounds like a house that you could live Appalachian.

This is a three year old this gender straight female living in New York. I am only because my boyfriend and I have been together for about six years. Now, it's an off and on. We had some gaps within those six years and most recently I want to say about. Six months ago, we finally got together and in different therapy on his end. Twas. Hey, remarkable thing, you know, doing all the right things like losing weight for your partner and bettering yourself. Here part is finally to happen. I feel like for the first time we are truly in a healthy place. And we are moving forward any actual real way. Which is one of my main issues that our relationship in the first place was that we weren't moving coming to now where we are friendly in a very good place. Each other we know each other better than anyone does any body else. You know? And my main issue is that he has never introduced me to his kids. Why understood before because we had our relationship had these big tumultuous that's down planes is a big age difference with us which always make things a little bit of it. But it's it's fucking kind. And like I have. Brought it up as many times I'm willing to bring it up. Because I is this so many times you can do it before you're just being pestering. I guess, but also you not fucking doing anything about it. Like, he says he is he promised that the provinces. And he I know he does in a way it because he wants this problem cannot be problem before. And he does want us to move forward. But he terrified. I guess because I mean, I can't I can't the besides joined that I think I have a nineteen scary. It is I'm set up, Dan. I just fucking guide up. I'm so tired not being somebody who can't even like the it gets. It gets even more complicated. He's still with the same apartment. Got it for fucking New York that he's still loses apartment as his ex wife because permanent. So big essentially like an extra Wayne that she stays in. And he wants to be near his two sons like he wants to close to them. So until him and I in together, we've has a jolt your sleep. Should we have been able to move into other that is happening soon? God. But I don't wanna wait for together. He type of shoes kids, you know. How will that be like, hey, guess what? I'm taking away from your dad. But it's probably this is who I am. I don't think I should know who their before the down. We're we're about of should I give an ultimatum. Mm-hmm. Because that's how angry I am right now. Should I give an alternator say if I don't case by the end of the month that I'm done? 'cause frankly when I sit down and think about it. And I when he's home, and I can't go there because his kids are there like, that's right. It's time. What do you think we just discussed polyester duress, and how can actually work out? I'm not sure introduce your kids to me under duress has ever worked out even seen this man for six years. You don't mention how old these children. Are you say, this is conducting an age gap? So presumably he's much older than you are and perhaps his children are closer to your age than his age and the entire time. You've been dating him. He's been living with his ex wife. So still kind of functioning as a couple and co parents and presumably these kids are not toddlers maybe their middle school high school and still living at home. And he has an introduced you to them. Now, you say that again you've been going on for six years, but they've been six incredibly tumultuous conflict two years. And it's only in the last six months that your therapy. Some sort of counseling that that you to have found the kind of stable place where the relationship isn't high conflict, although the tone of your voice and the frequency of your f- bonds makes the relationships on really I conflict and really dysfunctional and really unpleasant. And if you feel pushed aside, if you feel like he has an integrated you into his life in a way that demonstrates that he values you or respects you perhaps you should end this relationship, not as a strategy to force them to finally introduce you to his fucking kids. But because you know, maybe this six months of peace isn't gonna last maybe this is just the quiet before yet. Another star. Storm. Maybe he doesn't and can't give you what you want or make you happy. That said I think the point that you raise is a valid one. If he waits to introduce you to these children until the day, he moves in with you. They will regard you as the reason he moved out. Are you the reason he's moving out? Are you insisting that he move out and move in with you is that a valid thing for these kids to think does he wanna move out six years? How long has he been divorced and he's still living at home. It can't just be about wings of apartments. And I'm sorry. Anybody who lives in New York with two children who has an apartment large enough to have wings that you can share with an axe where you never ever run into them in that apartment can afford to have two apartments to smaller apartments, they could have gone to smaller apartments in the same fucking building. Probably a long time ago if they were interested in actually breaking up this household, they may not be interested. He may never give. Give you what you want? Millions and millions of other men in New York millions and millions of other men who who don't have children or would introduce their girlfriends, and you partners to the children that they do have who don't live with their wives ex wives ex girlfriends, and I would encourage you to maybe think about dating one of them and stop investing in what sounds like not a great relationship based on what little you shared with us today. You probably spend about ninety percent of your life in your underwear. Sue, don't you think you know, it to yourself to make sure you're wearing the softest undies in town. That's why I personally love me undies, I love to wear them. I love it. When someone else who's wearing them is in very close proximity. They feel good not just on you.

That's me, undies dot com slash savage. Dan. I am calling to get your opinion about a game that was recently released it's called rape day. And it was like released on team. I think they've like taking it down now. But it's a game where you can basically like hoses a serial, rapists and go round and Rabe women. And I am just you know, I I wanna know what you think about this. Like, I mean is this art is this free speech? Like is. Okay. Should this be allowed like how did this even come to fruition in general like as a woman like I I mean, I'm I'm pretty upset anxious like pissed off and upset about this like, and I know there's not like significant evidence that correlates violent video games with like on its in real life. But I feel like there's no way that a game. Like, this doesn't contribute like. Violence against women in real life. So I'm just curious like your thoughts. Like, I mean. And and especially like as far as like Cain. Click women who have you know, rape, fantasies. And then as well like is this is this like some sort of like, the can this be like a positive out, or I I don't know. There's no evidence that shows that viewing violent pornography inspires people to commit acts of violence and back. The opposite may be the case. And there are a lot of people out there with what we delicately attempt to call ravishing fantasies now, but any effort to replace an English one syllable word with a three or four syllable words, usually unsuccessful when these things are discussed usually discussed as a rape fantasy in a fantasy scenario. Someone is radicalizing perhaps thirteenth is fears and finding a controlled way to have an experience provides them with some catharsis and release and control control of. An experience that they fear happening where they won't have any control and that can be deeply Roddick. Now this rape day video game, which is already being pulled off platforms everywhere the service. I believe that I put it up doesn't really screen or filter that games. They put up will. Sometimes take a look if enough people freak out and complain and enough people there's a changed on org petition freaked out and complained. I think rightfully so about this zombie apocalypse game where the viewer plays some zombie who to progress through the game has to commit acts of sexual assault and violence, and it's gone. And you're right. There is some point of tension between allowing for the fact that a lot of people out there have rape and ravished -ment fantasies that they would like to find someone that they can enact those fantasies with in a safe and consensual and controlled way. The fact that there's all sorts of other forms of violence that are portrayed in the media that we don't see a lot of change dot org petitions about I. Oh, myself personally will never get over being forced to sit through that. Terrible killer clown movie, it we're children are dismembered and murdered on the scream very graphically. It was a big hit. I hated it. There wasn't however a change dot org petition calling for it to be ganked out of theaters or to prevent the filming of the inevitable sequel, which is a here coming our way. So there is some point of tension between depictions of violence and mayhem serial killer, cultural fetishism is thing and a a line that that we seem to wanna drawn I think necessarily need to draw around depictions of sexual violence where sexual violence as in this game as opposed to came thrones. For instance, is the point. As opposed to a part of the narrative, it is the the whole reason I it is in a non sexual way being portrayed as the goal and the natural use of the female characters as opposed to by-election or crime all that said, I am comfortable with this game ripe day being banned. And I am comfortable sitting with that contradiction that I will allow for I have even facilitated through conversation with others the realization in a consensual and non harmful way of a ravished -ment or rape fantasy consenting adults in private. And then only impacting the people who are in that room enjoying that experience at consensual renegotiated again, non harmful way, and the injection into the culture of a game literally something that makes a game out of sexual assault at least in fantasy role play. The the stakes the consequence that the seriousness and the trans aggressiveness of that act is to part of what makes it erotic. It's part of what makes in acting for someone who's turned on by it cathartic is contained though to the experience of those two people this game being loosed on the world. It's not contained and it's not about catharsis and release. It's not about visiting terror. And then feeling it in walking away from it. It's about that terror being presented to us. And I'm sorry to go there. Young impressionable. Males who play games as an entertainment as something laudatory and in the Zambia Pacalypse universe. Created by the assholes who designed this game. As an achievement as a goal unto itself. Not okay with that. I am okay. With this kind of this degree of censorship. I don't think there should have been that movie yet. I wish there wasn't going to be a sequel. I wouldn't if it was in my power deny other people the right to sit through that awful, film, and you being upset and you feeling conflicted about this in the same way that I feel conflicted about this. I'm right there with you. And I'm sorry that we've all had to even have this conversation. I'm sorry that they're assholes out there who thought that. This was entertaining and a fit subject for a game. Here's a time-saving hassle reducing life simplifying money saving tip. Stop going to the post office. How you ask me how by using stamps dot com.

I am eight twenty seven year old sister, gay male. I'm calling because I have a question about my partner. He is twenty six we've been together for a while. Now, we dated previously in the past and things were pretty awesome. And we broke off for a little while just because we were on the same page and we're communicating what have you? So now we have gotten back together. And we have tried to communicate more about our feelings and our wants needs. And here's my issue. I am personally a pretty sexually expressive person. I enjoy sex. It's just awesome. And what have you he on the other hand? It doesn't seem to get the same joy and fulfillment out of sexist issue. So he is a little more reserved when it comes to things I try and make moves every once in a while. And he just doesn't really pick up on it flashed. He doesn't want it. He just expresses that he doesn't care for it at that moment. So I tried to communicate with him and ask him like what he was into the things he wants and needs out of sexual film, it he enjoys chatter eight, and I'm totally okay with him doing that. And he also expressed to me that he enjoys going to that houses. I personally didn't have any experience with about house previously. But I was open to try it. So we ended up going to a bath house, and we had a lot of fun. And I ended up getting tired about two hours into it and told him that I was going to step outside. And he's that he would be out there momentarily. So. He was in there for two hours after I left and the really upset me. And keep out. I was being a little over dramatic because it was just a little bit more time than he intended. And what have you, right? So I don't know. I guess my question is I'm a little confused on how to get him to tell me what he's sexually into. Because when we did do that situation seemed like we had fun. But since then we've really haven't had any sexual content at all I think you should break up with him not because these an asshole not because he's unworthy of your affection. But because it isn't working between you two sexually that there's a disconnect here is a failure on his side to communicate. He doesn't seem to be able to communicate. Now, there are guys out there. And sometimes it seems that gay guys are more susceptible to this than others who have a difficult time with sex in the context. Of an ongoing intimate relationship. If a difficult time incorporating sacks into a boyfriend ease scenario, and they have a much easier time seeking what they want asking for what they want verbally or non verbally. In a bath house in a public sex environment from a stranger someone they never have to look in the I ever again, and it could be tied for a lotta guys to their own turn was a phobia or sense of shame. You're telling you what he wants he feels or he projects onto judgment that you may not be engaged in. You're not judging him you wanna meet his needs. And then he reads that judgment into your actions. And he feels every time you look at him that that you're just looking a scant set him now because he revealed this whatever it is about him. And he wants as opposed to the guys he meets and bath houses where he can say I want to do this this and this and then when it's over they go their separate ways, and he never has to see them ever again. Now, it would be better if he could tell you what he wants and do some of the things that he wants to do with you. And then also if he's into bath houses into public sacks, go out and do those things with other people and with you to you guys could have the sexual adventures together. But for. Whatever reason he isn't capable of integrating you into his sex life, and any sort of functional way and the question, then for you becomes how long are you going to hang around waiting for him to learn how to do that or even demonstrate to you that he wants to do that someone who tells you that he'll just be a moment. Then leads you standing outside a bath house for two hours, even if he was capable of integrating into his sex life. That's a kind of inconsiderate asshole move that may disqualify someone or may demonstrate that someone isn't ready yet for a partnership because when you're in a partnership when he relationship you have a boyfriend yet to take their feelings into consideration, and he failed just on that. So how much longer are you going to invest your time the mental energy and sexual frustration. How much more sexually frustrated Unicom waiting around for him to turn into someone else turned into somebody's not learn how to communicate with you? You gotta dump them. And you got to tell them why you're dumping him. And maybe that'll inspire him to get his ass onto a therapist's couch and see if this is something that he can work on or change may not be something. He can change doesn't mean that he's broken. It just means that this may be how he functioned sexually in which case he needs to find himself a partner, and I've met gay couples like this needs to find himself, a partner who wants intimacy and romance and connection instability in familiarity and his relationship and not sacks. He needs to find someone who is on the same page there may both have tons of anonymous or quasi autonomous sex with other people in public sex environments and bath houses, and they come home to each other and make dinner and called on the couch. But they don't fuck that can work, but it only works if it's what both people want, and it may. Both partners happy what he's offering. You doesn't make you happy. It makes you miserable. And this relationship. All right. You're tweets. Mari blank tweets. I can't believe at faked and savage has incorporated the term doggy style into vocabulary after that weird. Australian call back in December believe it Mari believe it the best Catherine tweets listening to savage love cast and playing do you agree with Dan with my roommate kind of a boring gain because Dan's, always, right?

And you know, what something that you didn't bring up, although I can't blame you because it doesn't get talked about a lot is that these boys being raised to be slobs. Often moms aren't teaching their sons to take care of their stuff to change their sheets. I. I can tell you that my clients who are single men often don't change their sheets, there is usually, you know, t- tissue paper lying around. There's all sorts of nasty things. They don't do their dishes, and it's so prevalent that it has to be socialized. There is no other way. It is so common. So yeah. Yes, you can be turned on. And in fact, you can say something about it. 'cause it's gross and more guys should be pulled that their growth and their homes are growth is just a fact. Telling about your caller who was kind of freaking out about her husband telling her that he likes to wear women's clothes. And it's like man, she's just needs to really take a breath. And relax. I mean, I know transgender as everybody talks about right now every all the time, and it's fine. That's fine. That's something that needs to be talked about. But whatever happened to just dressing people cross dress, the my current girlfriend is straight as an arrow straighter than I am. But she has a big fetish about me wearing women's underwear that just turns her on doesn't mean that either of us is transgender in any way, you know. So yeah, just get freaky. You know? Transgress crossdressing is fine. Hey, dan. I'm calling about episode number six forty seven and the lady with the crappy as be crisis pregnancy center, please tell her cousin.

I'm in for one play when matt stafford limps because he limps basically every game he never goes out. Even when matt stafford has an elbow injury off the field he just registers pain as being oh. I can't walk brett hundley cardinals. Oh gino smith's on the seahawks. I didn't watch us so we got geos paxton lynch. Yes yeah cradle a quarterback quarterback northwest. If you combined paxton lynch and gino smith powers they would be like one quarter russell wilson yup. That's that's about exactly right. Case case keenum is on the redskins technically started but he's really a backup ryan tannehill on the titans which i think we knew but i also i'm just always used to him being on the dolphins and taking this is the year that he finally makes it all takes that next step for sir <hes> fizi to just do an onside kick they did did that. They recovered i. I don't know they didn't they did not recover. Okay okay so this fizi. Let me get your thoughts on fifty wearing that -til will that miami -til because the candy uniform. I don't think really plays with riots patch. No he looks his belly looks a little bit bigger. He does yeah absolutely the pastels. Don't work for for harvard man. He's needs crimson. It's also weird preseason football because you can't y. It's it's like ready stream city. You got to go find everything and it just weird seeing all these football games go on. We can't watch any of them know well. You can't resourceful enough. I put up a tweet that showed my own personal red zone channel. I had going on my computer. Oh yeah but i i had to delete the tweet because i don't want to blow it. Everyone else spot up yeah because the n._f._l. Doesn't know the people stream games on reddit. That's got to be careful about that. <hes> freddie kitchens got i. It's always real treat to see these brand new head coaches <hes> to see their small little quirks and mannerisms on the sideline that we can pick out and make fun of for the next five years yes so with freddie kitchens one thing i noticed immediately right off the bat with him big watch tin on his left wrist. He's been wearing the same watching the exact. Same spot does shock you that he's not all trace. Suntan lotion guy does is not shock me at all or maybe it's just like. He hasn't earned his brown stripe yet yeah on his wrist or he's. He just rub some dirt on his skin. He's like this will cover it. Yeah how many fine fine the other thing. I love about <hes> preseason football we when we were watching it. It just happened a minute ago and one of these games because everyone is competing for a roster spot got. It is live ball city. So if there is a pass that has incompletion. The defense just jumps on it like ooh. This could be a fumble did pick it up. They run it all the way back yes every every single. Ball is alive ball and it's like guys. You really don't have to do that. They didn't onside kick so i'm fucked. I lost the jets fodder here. So did i do whatever the hell well football. If the air this out who is that who's who's mike glennon emaciated mike glennon who i dunno on the jets the backup that's in right now. Oh the jets. Let's have <hes>. I don't know who might trevor simian scurvy yeah a lot of weight <hes> yeah trevor siemian is looking good well all right so we also also had a couple of n._f._l. Stories that we wanted to hit on first up. Stop me if you've heard this before but it boasts hurt yeah. He has a foot injury so nick. Bosa has a severe high ankle sprain. I guess this as is custom in the bosa household you tie. There's the they pull themselves up by their own bootstraps so they have weak knees. It's weak ankles. It's crazy like i don't joke about injuries and all that stuff blah blah blah blah that was to put goddamn. The post is just love to get injured yeah they were. They were held by their ankles and dipped in the ohio river. When they're a baby. It's crazy. I mean it's the bosses and sean lee and sean only actually got hurt yeah. He's always hurt. That's not even that's not even something we should talk about because it's almost a give tell you what we will give you a sean lee update. If he's not right the minute he plays four games in then we will come in with the breaking news alert. <hes> the giants daniel jones ooh young eli yeah it up e- he line the nation yeah. This is overreaction time to dale. Jones is the best quarterback in the n._f._l. Right yeah and i was watching the first half of the bears panthers. Tim montgomery is the greatest running back i've ever seen him. Both these facts are true these. If you watch a first quarter of a preseason game you can make all the judgments you want because guess what you have that right because you watch the first quarter true but daniel jones didn't throw any touchdowns after the weather day oh so is the play is the way to stop them the blueprint out on yes. He's probably not a good quarterback. In this climate. Change futures fell the other the other story we had from the n._f._l. Kirk cousins is complaining because his centers asks sweats too much <hes> so that's really tells you where we're at in terms of the sports calendar. He's actually concerned about this because he said it makes the ball really slippery oh god when he might throw an an interception in a primetime game he might not be able to beat a nine and seventeen because the ball's slippery damn kirk fix that how about you just make your center where underwear made eight out of aluminum foil that way it'll be nice and safe yeah yeah yeah exactly just throw it on the grill by the way the fire trucks. We've we've been told we'll be fixed next week not going to happen. We were told next week last week. I actually talked to all business pete. I'll fuck head pete and he was like yeah. We're installing an inch of glass and and then he said put there might still be some holes in the sound okay so okay. He's not gonna be fixed listen. It's a great way to get me to just put something office told me it's going to happen next week a- all the time next week okay absolutely works for next week <hes> all right. Let's get to some of the other stuff we got including baker baker mayfield before we do fire fast though barstool gold dot com slash pm t if you wanna watch <hes> baker mayfield interview in his r._v. Baker mayfield by the away credit to him. He is a pro and media because every time we made a slightly inappropriate joke. He pulled the microphone away from his face so he could laugh so yeah. You're pro. If you're listening you're like is he not laughing at the g. o. He was also us laughing matt patricia on wednesday. That's why you didn't hear him laughing right.

We have jinxed anything worse than what we did on wednesday when we're up in green bay we interviewed floor. We interviewed john kuhn danny vital by tally vitality. You can't do that though like you can't be dickey. I know it's tough. I actually have a famous person. You can't share the same name a famous person and have it be pronounced different. Yeah exactly like <hes> the guy that landed the plane in the river. That's just how i have to pronounce my name right there. You go exactly exactly all right so we were up there. We finished the interviews so good. We're like we got this. We're going to milwaukee we earlier flight that that was the real jinx right there so well finished with vitality and kuhn we sit down in a taco bell and we were eating our lunch and taco bell by the way hang status here so we'll get to that with the mount rushmore taco bell so we're we're sitting in there. We're talking about how awesome we made. This trip like this is the most efficient troop we've ever had landed last night. Talk to a ghost watch hard notch recorded the show will cup drove up to the packers did a tour of lambofield talked jong-keun vitality and matt leflore just took in the incredible environment adapt of lambofield in both field a dump and then now we did so good.

Your flight has been cancelled boom. Your new flight goes from milwaukee to atlanta atlanta to new york so so then we spent the next basically eight hours in airports flying sat in the back row. You'd sit bitch. I sat middle and i don't. I don't like to turn bitch neighbors yeah. He's a townhouse yeah so and then we got we got in the worst part is you can't tank at bad vibes which you did have bad bad vibes in the but you can't blame the airline when it's thunderstorms so we were powerless. I mean you can you can also also. I will at some point so we we didn't get home until two thirty in the morning but the one saving grace we had we went to t._g._i. Fridays in the atlanta airport <hes> and it was bumping and then right as we're about to leave our waitress said. Are you guys in a band or something. Like what will we have podcast. He's like oh.

I've woken up and it's been like well probably not gonna find a ghost today. Do you go do my shitty job. That doesn't involve ghosts this sucks. Do you think that they're ghosts in cars as well are just oh this goes everywhere everywhere everywhere. It'd be sick if you bought a haunted car. We i want to buy a ghost. I want to buy a ghost in a shoebox and let it out in the office and that would probably make that up and then you can blame anything bad that happens to you on the coast but we we also learned that there could be ghosts of animals right so larry costa larry yeah but think about this like oh bad episode guys.

All at all business beaten easy easy to remember at all business all the coats alarm clock number one. That's a good one okay. My first pick is going to be a dentist drill. That's a tough one. Oh a woods. Oh okay you you guys are going to have to learn how to adapt on the fly now but yeah the sound that had dentistry makes especially when it's on you because you get that extra vibration is going through your jaw. That is a tough one. I hate that one. That one sucks easily. Just don't go to the dentist yep. That's what i've i've learned to play with that. Okay <hes> team. Lockwood is up all right team lockwood. Was that going to be your first pick. That was going to be my first. Oh no we're we're going to start with with this. The worst sound that you hear license and registration ooh good one. Okay okay <hes> well unless you have. I have that card that shows that i give to the police. Just you give that right underneath. You're like oh. I'm sorry officer. I didn't know i put that in whoops. I'm bad sorry to team walks for team block. We will go with the <hes> the amber alert sound on your phone. Oh that must be a huge inconvenience for that. Little kid got snatch. Snatch and hank just wants to keep watching fucking vine when the fourteen whatever come on i was in the middle of the tick tock. Sometimes it's like a flash low slash a flash flood warning. You're like what the fuck no. It is scary. It is very scary because the child probably won't come back exactly that's out allegations by point yeah the worst onto here. Fuck a kid is yes. I care about is the wealth of good job. We're gonna fix that okay all right my second one. My second were sound. Is your dog peeing in the middle of the night in another room. Okay on the floor the little tinkle that wakes up and you're like man now. I have to do like four things to fix the situation yup okay. That's a good one all right my second and third pick. I'm gonna go with <hes> <hes> second open mouth chewing chewing with your mouth open. It's fucking discussing remember when we did which used to do that as bad radio yeah oh and the spitting and gross and just trying to talk to you dad. My dad wouldn't let us chew gum in our house. Good ever bother smart good. That's a good bad habits well. He probably did it because he didn't want you fucking swollen all the dumb you psycho. Did you teach them that that you can swallow gum. Heck's gone was prohibited so the fact because he was swallowing was fine all gone. That's why he did it because he had to hide it yet to hide it from me. Oh yeah the evidence. Oh okay all right my next pick. I'm going to go with <hes>. Let's go with when someone is playing their instagram videos in public and it's so fucking annoying because it's one thing if you play video mhm kind of sense what's going on or is song. Put the fifteen seconds and just going scrolling person to person that will drive you insane. Almost instantly instantly okay. Mine is kind of along the same lines. I'm going to go with any song that's being played in someone else's car they can hear it doesn't matter it could be every every now and then that will go palm it could be your favorite song in the world but he's got a red light and someone comes bumping next if it's driving past you if it's driving away from you it is awful to listen to every now and then that that can bump you get the doppler effect going where the pitch sorts of shift to closer gets gets away from your team lockwood fill out your mount rushmore his third third fourth third and fourth so i'll go with the third and i'm gonna keep it to sports. Say the buzzer when it goes off when you're the losing team good kazakhstan good one good one. I thought team lockwood for sure was going to go with like the the soda fountain win. Bob lasts out. It does not not hearing what <hes> this is a personal one but the sound of folding paper like increase okay and folding paper but she's fun. Yes sir you're not crossing your cheese cheese separates and then you have the full the paper and then when you make the crease sound like that i used to have it's it's the worst thing in the world. Okay okay all right my last one and i'm gonna go with drake damn to strike hugest digging in going on a long bearing myself this drake take drake hate week all right my drake take my last one is going to be thank you for watching this presentation of the national football league on monday night. That's bad bad socks. Obviously the super bowl was the worst put that monday night won re like well because you you know you look forward to football. You just came off a whole sunday football and then that hits and you're like well no more football for another fucking three days this sock and at that point you know that your bet is final yeah yeah it is the altro on football is such a shitty shitty sound that that reminds me of the sixty seconds tech was a big mess yeah yeah on a sunday afternoon yeah all right i mentioned that's a good one as a huge miss someone someone taking a shit next to you in a public toilet yup bad not great dropping bombs mr lockwood crinkly <hes> like classic of a mint kind of paper when just holding it in there don't like the crinkles. Have you reached the age mr lockwood that you just have like hard candy all over your house. No okay that will be interesting when that happened yeah. That's where tom brady like. Don't eat sugar donate like any water straightaway and do you know how your son like like his diet. Yes yeah the hard candy around the house. That's basically the sixty minutes clock for your life because when you start doing that you <hes> maybe a couple of cashews that the fucking nuts.

I don't really know inhale exile import export yeah how about dwells the welsh accent. I had k. okay. How about the sound win. The sound of toilet makes when you've clogged it and when you know the wash hasn't been lean and you're like well. This is gonna suck yup. Gotta figure that one out especially when you're playing on a road game <hes> that's really that's not a good one win just any any any time. Somebody's in a bathroom and you hear them.

Thousand tourists love that term right yeah absolutely love it yeah. You guys are just right yeah so we're going to this whole interview. We're going to basically see if you actually are a franchise quarterback because we read that article from mikhail great article the fact that you don't wanna be called a franchise quarterback ariz a red flag that you're not a franchise quarterback big red flag that means. You're more of a q._b. One which is not bad. That's not a bad you think right but franchise quarterback. That's like the next level so well. Actually let's get started. If you were to grill meat. Would you put down aluminum foil underneath underneath the meat or would you put it right on the grill right on the grill. Okay maybe recipes franchise quarterback. We'll check in okay so last time we saw you. <hes> it was the middle of the season right after a coaching change a little weird in the facility. Now enough time has passed. You're the hottest topic in the world. You were the most hyped team in the history of n._f._l. Football but yeah so let's start there. Are you nervous at all about the hype <hes> maybe for the fans little heartbreak. I don't know it feels like there's just as low hype. Train has gotten a little out of control when you say <hes> i think the attention from the media yeah but the fans are just excited to have you know that excitement for football again since it's been not so great for a while <hes> them having something to look forward to this season. I think is the reason why they're so excited. Okay we got a bunch of guys that really wanna win and so we know how good we can be which can be great or it could be really bad right afraid. He's doing a great job of having us focus saying we haven't done anything yet. We gotta go to work every day. You need to do an interview in the next couple of weeks during training camp and say you're the dream team get. Did it really leaning really yeah. That's great so big that everyone's like baker so full of himself dream team that would go well with that fox. Reporter guy actually bleep name out there. Yeah yeah yeah yeah. Let's do that right now because i think you need to. Stop responding to them. I think you need to respond to you. Guys haven't done it yet. We have every single time. You didn't handle my american airlines. It's problem. I told you i was i did yes. No i do and i hit up american airlines and said i'm going to go fuck you for your in honor of your whites bags bags.

All right people were like united. Gotta take we have your back when colin shit bleep that out when he says something about you. We are the first people we call them. What what do we call baker takers. Yes yes become like a cottage industry almost recently <hes>. You had greenie doing a little bit. You've got c._c. Yeah and there's some other people from e._s._p._n. That know that you're kinda like this. Lightning lightning rod a little bit so if they say something like hot take about you. They're going to get a lot of attention so we're just trying to cut that off at the knee respond. Can't i out wants to. He wants you you to respond because then he gets a whole show out of it we just need to do it for you and fight fire with fire and be like colin were we speak on behalf of baker everything and then we have power of attorney with acre so we get to make all decisions here and then he doesn't get the thrill and then you can also disavow we go too far. Which will we will. I'll be go fuck yourself that there's enough separation between us right where it's not you saying it but wink wink wink. It's kind of like the whole thing thing with odell saying the giants fans aren't great fence meaning to contact one was about our fans that was smart of view odell is like hey baker. Make sure you get a line a dig in for the giants and you set instead of him. Yeah we know we know you know to he said what were you trying to get across that. The fact that cleveland fans are excited to have him and they don't care what he's done. In the past they know what type of guy is right now and what he wants to do any wants to win. They're excited so that moment when he gets traded <hes> how excited were you skeleton probably in eleven the key i mean the videos that came out of it. I i saw that one video of the kid who got the cops called on him because just running up and down the streets remain like that does that was actually think multiple people got the police because he was celebrating the trade yeah and that is like that's so exciting for fan base to have a free q._b. One maybe franchise quarterback and then trade for one of the best wide receivers devers in the league already have jarvis landry. Has he done anything yet. In practice were because you know he has a big practice guy. <hes> has he done anything like holy shit. This guy's it's unbelievable. <hes> just the way he catches the ball. I mean it's just it's so natural to him and then you can hear it when the fancy like almost everyone in catch and they make a north because it's almost so expected of him and that's the i think the crazy part about it is it's so routine from to do amazing things that sometimes you have to realize realized that's that's not normal right. It is for him right right when you see him if he's covered one on one even if he's covered if it's the cornerbacks all over them you kinda still still see him as always being open less two or more guys right. Absolutely you know he's got a guy. That has a lot of range. He's got a lot of body control. You can stop on a diamond flip oscilloscope and get the ball also also <hes> just learning how to throw him. He's he's got a lot of range. You like the new hair. It's different yeah. I predict that the old hairs coming back and think so. I i just think anytime soon. Have you guys planned touchdown celebration yet we have not are you going to to be determined. Who's a better dancer me well. I don't know let's alvin shot at quarterback doesn't care about here's a franchise quarterback. The best does he takes the ball and then hand it to a child in the first row okay but i'm not worried about it. He has the volvo. Oh okay meet. Odell has the ball but you if you're the alpha alpha then you take the ball from your wide receiver. I saw devin funchess hand like six that he didn't drop to cam newton and give away to a child in the front row last year just something to think about <hes> since we last saw you so we mentioned at the top when we were here in the facility last time it was the week after a coaching change so we didn't really get into it because it was all fresh weird. Have you spoken to hugh jackson not will you anytime soon or anytime. You know like bury the hatchet although i don't i actually. She don't think you have anything to bury here. He's the one who went to the media and did all that stuff when you saw him on t._v. Like a week after <hes> he got fired. What was the conversation in the locker. Like what is this guy doing kind of like that but it also we didn't really care right. It was one of those things that kept getting brought up. We're over so you know we're moving forward and <hes> that's the reason why it's not even an issue now right. Were there was more of a deal that he went to division rival that to the inside knowledge that that he had that was that was kind of snaking move. I understand you want to go on t._v. You want to get another job for yourself at some point but the fact that he went to the bengals at probably stung a a little bit <hes>. I think it was more and i said this it was more of you know you're you're in front of us in locker room asking for us to play for you and then two weeks later you go to a division rival that we played twice last year and he's still getting paid so what people didn't understand. Was you know he still has income because everyone the whole he's got a right to work. Absolutely i'm all for that and i truly believe that he you know looking back on it. He should have gone in and got a job right away. You know just for the benefit of having job right there and then for making connections and all that and so i i understand it but that doesn't mean i have to like it right and so i think that's the biggest thing was i mean that's why i am. I am yes so i wanna talk about that. Real quick y. You are who you are because this kind of goes back to the hype around the browns. They are america's team this year as i coined by me. Did you ask jerry. Jones stole for listen. I can can take your jerry jones out. I'm not worried about him. He's real. I stole it. I saw that take from hawkins from baby hawk so it's my take now but the cleveland browns rounds are america's team this year with all that hype. You're a guy that likes to play with a chip on your shoulder. You kinda you you rise to the occasion when people doubt you you. How are you going to be able to step it up when everybody's got you back and they're like yeah. These guys legit super bowl champions guaranteed. I think it's more of just are cleveland. Fans think that <hes> you know we have to worry about what's going on locker room and have a mindset of blocking everything else out because i know exactly how this is going to go if we don't have a great year they're gonna throw us in the trash. They're going to say oh. You got egos everything like that and so that's what guys have realized but that's what i said. Earlier was fred. He's doing a great job of keeping keeping it singular focused you know having a big picture mindset of yeah. We want to win the super bowl. It's what you do if you play football but then realizing you have to win to get their listen if you guys start like one and two bakers all hell's breaking the browns sock. I don't you worry about that. At least you're being off well. I'll tell you overreaction so and then when you guys like win eight in a row like who said that me no. I didn't know hacked sat had no chance one last hugh question. How close are you to not shaking his hand after that game because i feel like but he didn't want to. I wish you hadn't this. This is the worst you wish okay. This is my biggest baker problem. Is i love you. I love your your swagger. I think you are a franchise quarterback. We're back every now and then he said no. He said he said i'll take this out every now and then you you play play by the rules in in. I don't want you to like you shake hugh jackson's hand. I wish she had just walked right by him. You apologize for the kansas thing. I don't think he should have apologized like there are times. We're living in the past year. I want you to be like you know what. I don't care about any of this. I'm here to win football games every other social norm that has nothing to do with winning the football games. You're so close. You're so cool to learning process okay someday. I think you're gonna get there and be like you know what. I'm not never apologizing for anything well. I wouldn't go that far. Okay okay all right but that's that's my that's. My only gripe is that you apologize too much. <hes> can i ask you a question. Did you let swagger kiss on the lips. Yes okay. I like that. People should let dogs kiss the moa always franchise quarterbacks definitely the dogs except in front of swagger did he c- he turned his head. Okay all right then that's fine. I've got a massive to wipe wipe the slobber and then i just put it right back on circle of life. Just recycle it towel and a faucet <hes>. How much money do you cower murray opio for for what for basically starting this like you can have quarterbacks from the big twelve. They're short do well in the n._f._l. Short colomer is perfectly. How how much he's going to be <hes>. I actually they. It's like it's a joke question but if you didn't weren't successful last year i don't know if he goes number. One like that's the lincoln riley thing and everything gets kind of going and it's like cokie both special. I see both sides so there's guys like drew in rustled of kind of paved the way early on so i think even if i didn't play this year and injuries didn't happen and i wasn't thrown into it. I still think colorado on number one okay yeah okay. He can throw the ball. I saw a couple of clips and practice in shorts. He's putting it hake with shorts really easier to throw football and shorts as opposed to football pants. It's better naked yeah. What what do you think about horns down the whole rule that they're implementing. Who do we have. We have this on the on on the first juice. Dan and his family okay come on. Come on through. Come on wash your kids here. What do you what do you think about the the horse down. I think it's very soft. They're implementing a rule about uh-huh yeah the sensitivity of today's day and age. This was a savvy move by baker to have his whole family here so we couldn't ask any more hard question censorship drew. I have a question for you. Drew drew stands here drew. You remember that time <hes> you. We've dominated pinball. Okay let me finish question. Remember that time we played in greg olson kickball tournament. You took it way too seriously and everyone wants aches. Yeah true moustache dispatched mustache. Anybody knows greg. He takes everything way too serious. I played on that team member. You still on the team when i when i played on it like two years later he didn't let anyone drink and it was an alternative kickball tournament seriously yeah. You took it way too seriously. Everyone's like awkward awkward. Did you guys all get together and decide to go bad musters at the same time or is that just coincidence. What do you mean bad. I'm i'm hating because i can't grow on. I'll be honest. I'm lashing out and see that i'd ah love your mustaches. This is a q._b. Next you go back the pin numbers fun of one person with a bad mustache but you can't make everybody was so i gotta hop back on it and so that way join you're welcome to join the. I'm on original moustache so i need to get back into it the original mustache well. No one of the army air makes you guys every night. You just said you point where america's team no but. I also said that the same mustache verse america's team. I think that's pretty big cat the inventor of the mustache. We're not on here yeah because the sound so so yeah david being a lot of trouble yeah so what are the rules of the r._v. There's a lot of rules. Blau has the first rule of the days. When the godfather shows up he needs his cold brew will just enough foam on it still sitting on his desk. Okay reason it's nitro right like home yeah v._s. To be stocked at all times brown's camera here and then we also <hes> commute. You have to practice you. You guys are not cleveland. The cleveland going to be like something coming to do. Good for good health cert- makes you poop more or less. I'd say more more more it doesn't. It's not making me go. David making rules on this bus. Is that because he's no. I don't know if that was me to make the rules. Oh he's as a follow okay got it. Do you miss brogan at all of course. Is there any aspect about hard knocks being around that you miss no not not at all not one bit okay. What advice would you give to the raiders about how to do with hard knocks here. That's going to be entertaining. I might actually watch so you're gonna start to love hard knocks like a fan along with the rest of us this year because it's now to go through it. It's not nearly as miserable yeah exactly no. It's a great show and like with with the team. They guy like jon. Gruden do skrudin mostly due scrutiny again <hes> part of the article actually to seek a question right now so seatgeek put in seeking sponsor and all training running camp week goto browns game. The baker said they're gonna win. The super bowl putting promo code. Take and you get ten dollars off so you said in the article that you no longer screen shot the haters um so i screen shot at some haters for you. Wanna read them <hes>. This dude is overrated. You'll see teams have film on him now. He was underestimated. Last season is in vince young rookie season too. Damn that one's tough because this is <hes> garett high school or okay. I'm reading the headers right now. The kids out of earshot okay all right cool all right. You know what's funny. You're so fucking overrated that every fucking top cast caster astor from the news radio to whatever thinks you in the browns would do well. It's so funny that you won't even hit playoffs l._l. Dropped on you. Baker mayfield actually laughing. Yeah definitely sony was so funny. What he's saying listening scares yeah. He's a good q._b. But this is actually kind of. I don't know what this is about big mayfield what sucks he's a good q._b. He's not great nor will he be too much ego not enough talent. We'll do one more personable when you see how browns fans treat lamar fuck that baker mayfield can suck my dick from the back alice good. So what do you think about the haters baker you you don't screen shot but i'm creative oil and he's test serious real joining us here at curricular tears. Well <hes> <hes> yeah so you you. That was a nice entrance there so what you think about that one the haters i mean it's good stuff to hear really by the way i actually had a couple of questions it. It is keeps you motivate some right. We're l. mardi cardi. Call me twelve years old. Yes that's true. That's your nickname. The twelve year old twelve year old fat at twelve twelve year old keeps facial hair. Yeah just remind people just get carded him. What happens if you can't grow a mustache. You got carded <hes> <hes>. It's been a while. It's been a while people in cleveland recognize. You got it goes must <hes> garett actually had a question for 'cause. I thought doc maybe you you'd show up <hes> you won the m._v._p. Of af both take aim facto takes. Maybe the head you have the m._v._p. I'm yeltsin claim to heal so claimed the first af only a f- championship congratulates relations on that <hes> what what was it. I mean obviously they kind of got you here right. Yeah i mean it was it was a lot of fun. It's it's been a long time since i played so it was a lot of fun game to play again and but you know obviously the league had a lot of issues with payments and i was just talking to you yeah one of our training camp in terms. The interns in terms came introduce himself said he was working with the birmingham iron and he didn't get paid until she told me she got a champion. Yeah true close to ring. You should get rank. I need to make your own ring a week ago. Yeah what was it like playing a lot of fun light years yeah. He's going to make himself a ring downtime for sure yeah. They had a whole ceremony and everything it was just for your at like career and his wife and i think he called out rick neuheisel again back and forth. What was it like playing for him though in his twilight years so to speak it was a lot of fun. He is unique. He's he's a different guy but it was a lot of fun plan for him. He's got he's got to go perspective on the game and i mean he keeps things interesting yes. He wasn't out there shirtless like he was carolina okay. How many times do you golf off clubs to practice well. He disappointing. I want to get out there and play with them but he had he had just had back surgery so our time he had a hard time move around we i've heard a story that the end of his run on its south carolina the team would be practicing on a field and he would be on the adjacent field just practicing someone else to confirm that but i don't doubt it what it is his football philosophy fucking score points yeah. I mean in so many words that yeah we're scoring points than doing it. That's perfect throughout the open guy. That's you know that easy game with with your coach freddie freddie coming in hot. I heard so it's like one of those things. He's you know he was around last year but but this is his first year in charge of the ship i heard he came in and he was just like dog cussing everybody for the first couple of practices trying to tell him that right <hes> like in the off season. He was fired up. The first couple of days is fired up. I wouldn't say he was dog cussing everybody but he was being very hard on everyone yeah. I'll just setting the expectation like i said he. I didn't want anything to get out of control you know for everybody's ego to get in front of them just to make sure we're on page. Do you feel a little pressure knowing that like you and freddy are almost else so intertwined now because had success with them and then i'm assuming you trying to learn the way he speaks. Yes it's a little different now. It sounds like this but he you kind of helped him get a job and he off the best in you yeah i think but for a quarterback in the geico plays have a great lakes shipping you gotta click when it comes to the offense and that's that's where i hit was how he sees stuff how he breaks down how to eliminate quicker and that's where it started and then once i get to know more and more and haven't drew that had been with them in arizona. <hes> helped a lot so i don't know we just hit it off the helm thick that was nicknamed college. It was nicknamed him thick three cs. He's a big boy now. It's up to five yeah yeah yeah. I mean it's the truth quite a thick boy. I look i'm thinking boy summer. Say that stick boy summer here for that point if you guys not exactly voice summer why sixty when people say i don't know you care. It doesn't know what it is. Jody would either one more state titles of your high school. He did garrett gatorade national player of the year title so you how you on one do do you want one who want five hundred senior year. That's book junior year. We in the fifth one on the same team though right now. I play his younger brother. Okay got it awkward that you got really highly recruited by texas and you didn't and now you're starting over. I think we both don't like texas. We go hands down sort out near sorta yeah. We're both on that train. Yeah you're orange down graduate though yeah that's true okay for life technically way so you have a he doesn't degree from the university of texas. He's still longhorn. That's well digging in texas probably cans ah legal this too. Many big twelve quarterbacks on one team is bad situation. We have david. I know even it out smart. I'm the smart conference u._s. Everything american conference truly the patriots it all q._b. One franchise quarterback question do you concern yourself with the opinion of sheep <hes> no okay franchise. Quarterback could answer <hes> <hes> freddie. Can we use the term like you guys are married to each other. I just got married so it'd be a little weird. I proclaim you're also married to freddie kitchens. Wait a second. It be done ministry. I'm not sure how that works. My hands are tied married. You guys are intertwined together. It's it's going to be great for the football. Yeah guys will click really well bird to finish each other's sense. Yes you should just go and copy him and see if he picks up on it a little goof- all right. I have one last question. How many wins are we saying. We have to guarantee and let's put it on paper. We actually don't have to guarantee yeah so thinking eleven eleven thirty the era that'd be great for regular season. Yeah great okay so that's. I think that i did not say guarantee that put us in great position guarantee. I i guarantee you did say the word guarantee. It is a dumb question. Oh okay down guaranteed. Eleven wins this kind of a dumb question bigger but he ever think like what if you guys just say fuck it and win the super bowl this year i mean i wouldn't necessarily surely say it went in that thought process right but as i had thought when i was flying here i was like fuck it. Let's win super bowl. I'm not sure it would necessarily surely go like me and the train of thought saying screw it. Let's do this when i why he's doing. Be legends supposed to full sent go full <music> guaranteed guaranteeing full sent oh man he would be insufferable. 'cause you're gonna do the thing where you really you get on mike vogue and g. q. and then you lose a little bit of your bad boy street fred. You're on this show on this show. You're going to be like on all the stuff coming out for usa soon. Okay all right guaranteed. Nothing okay yeah. We'll defend against american airlines. If not we'll give you call for sure will def two times state champion right so yeah. That's better than baker so that works. <hes> you other questions from one last franchise quarterback q._b. One what was it last book you read. I heard that you were reader. Where did you hear that. I just heard you were reader the last book i read tally how he's mad that people think he's a reader yeah yeah. No it's also means is a longtime alonzo. Are we doing it's going on. I love this. Have you guys like dow or anyone in here. <hes> he stepped foot in here. Okay just alonzo highsmith. <hes> are using the glass. Yeah i mean. I haven't finished a book in a long time interest quarterback. Yes if you had an answer ready for me. I was gonna talk you points yeah. You should be focusing our playbook. I am not like i am sun also rises or whatever you want yeah. You're like <hes> last book. I read the giver in seventh grade. That would account it to think i read that okay. They were go have you. Are there like different words that you're learning between like odell jarvis louisiana's slang that you'd never heard before not a couple louisiana teammates in college. Do you have like separate group texts for different in groups players so you can be like hey man get you the ball hey man. I'm going to get you the ball. Don't worry about the ball just slide twenty table. She should play neck for them in the locker room after game. Yeah that should be the cleveland neck. Do you guys have the same song like a team song. No okay it's neck. Yes no it's. The drew carey saw cleveland. We're not detroit rocks cleveland right down to cleveland on all right.

Patrick got pulled over because you're not supposed to talk on your phone. While you're driving is very dangerous so very this is the come you do at one time. Then that's a mistake you do it twice. He tweeted out that picture of driving the chargers camp and the bike lanes and the bike it start to it's time to start asking should peter king have license. He should have his license revoked. I i agree with that. He is a menace. He's a threat maybe actually he's probably just listen to part of my take. We should never let him on the show. You know all right good until you remedy yourself until you go back driving school and prove that you're not out there to cause havoc on the road. You're no longer welcome on. I'm sorry it's just we have to look out for our listeners. It's your everybody i'm gonna. I'm gonna stand behind that band right here and <hes> he also got really mad at people who were tweeting at him and laughing at him. Mm said it's murdered somebody. Well dude. You go to time you might you could've. He said i told the cop when he was giving me. The options about how i could contest has a ticket. That's okay sir. I'm guilty as sin. Oh wow you thank you. Oh you think like if you just admit to murder your everyone would be like okay cool. Yeah yeah carry on with our lives good news for he'll still let himself in the hall of fame. How many people this is totally off the field but seriously peter seek help seek wanna see you be okay also peter king. He told the police officer. I'm guilty like right off the bat way to go here. There's something called the constitution and the fifth amendment and you're doing all your listeners a disservice by not informing them that they have the right not to incriminate. He probably go ahead searched my whole my whole search every hole i had officer i i have numerous cavities could a glove on oh man okay. We have a just chilling stink stink. Just chill out man for adam gays so adam engage there was a story it was when he was i believe the <hes> offensive coordinator for the denver broncos and essentially his wife gave birth and <hes> the story goes. They pulled the baby out of me his wife talking. They pulled the baby out of me and said it's a boy. Jennifer told dan pompei they. I didn't even put my organs back and so me up before he's like you good so see section. I said yeah i'm good. He said all right then i'm out. They said you wanna cut the umbilical cord. He said no. I'm good and he just went back to practice. I wish there was a picture of him and his wife having a water delivery in a pool and him wearing the broncos helmet looking at us playbook peyton manning was he is <hes> he also adam gates did some smelling salts before the preseason game. His eyes are just wild wild yeah. That's a that's a man that does not need smelling so no he his upper lip is a permanent smelling so going off of his eyes when he wakes up in the morning. He's got those googly. He is and he's ready to go. I think he's allergic to air. It takes a sniff of oxygen. He's a cold. Let's go oh my god. That's yeah big time. You good good all right. I'm out all right. I'll see you when you're at home your house your uterus. Days has a piece okay. You think you could play if it was if it was a playoff game. Would you be able to play you. Take it easy. Look with your badge <hes> all right so next one. We have a stay classy for daboh so this was a big big. I think there's a big debate in the college football space <hes> we heard piquet. Did you do a podcast the night of your birth yeah i did but i it wound the case. No no no wait was it knows the next day okay okay. Here's the next day i was like. Wait fuck. We should've just had a podcast that day just to see if you're committed enough to come into yes. It was used born on wednesday. We did a podcast thursday who <hes> okay so <hes> dabo has been criticized because he did not give kelly bryant a <hes> ring bryant famously played first four games trevor lawrence took over which was the right decision he then left school cool and <hes> is now the the quarterback from mizzou so if you wanna check out all the mizzou training camp stuff our guy calebs crushing it there but so there's a big story ori because dad was like no fuck that you left you. Don't get a ring. Even though you played four games for us right did he request during and they said no. We're not gonna give you don't know about that. I do know though who would you think had the hottest take. I know where you're going with so i can't answer but multiplayer game my player game but cat who had the hottest on this one yeah i would say that if there was a guy out there that would tell kelly bryant. Go fuck off and jump off a cliff because dabo swinney. He's a great human being. It'd probably be dan now yeah but they went the other way so the opposite direction on the on the argument okay. His argument was kelly. Kelly bryant didn't make a dime at clemson dabble just inked ninety three million dollar guaranteed new deal. Just give the kid a damn cubic zirconiums ring and move on he he did win one out of four of their games or one fourth of their games that has nothing to do with the argument no but it does told me that daddy's getting soft yeah a little bit but this is concerning to me no danny to be that we've talked about yeah. We need danny to be eastern into millennial danny kanell yes he yes but this is like the spongebob verbal mean where the where spongebob has his hands going everywhere twisted around this argument like what is kelly bryant not getting ring have anything to do tablespoon you making money yeah i don't. I don't really get that it means they left the team. It means he's throwing us a bone saying like hey maybe the player should be paid right. He's like throwing us a bone be like i'll admit that okay you have one of two options. Either you get paid at school or you get a ring. If you transfer yes yes and in this case i'm coming. I'm coming down on the ring if you transfer and he had every we re kelly brian had every right to leave. That's i mean you see it all the time with coaches they go back and forth and if he's not gonna play he might as well you know save his eligibility and go play somewhere else as an eligibility thing but he wasn't gonna stick around if he wasn't gonna play and dabble has every right to be like no dude you don't ring and kelly bryant. He should have to give back the life lessons that dabo tottenham clemson true accountability and that leaves that in south carolina buddy. That's sweet slide. They have in their facilities. Give that back you those slides back not that fun back. Give the memories of sliding and give washer hand until all the remnants of that rock that you get to touch off may kill me kelly branko back to clemson and just keep walking up the slot as many times went down and go up the hill. Yeah you walk down yes. You should have to walk up that he'll be driven back down by dabo until he learned his lesson. I like it.

Do i need some advice on how to knock. It wrecked during sex ooh number humbling ooh so this guy just basically wanted to brag that he had sex yeah. Okay we get it. I mean i think if you were to pull a hundred guys on the street and say hey you can have sex sex but you're gonna take five slaps to the face. I think ninety nine of them would say yes. <hes> even trade jimbo yeah not really jimbo. You just want to tell us yet which i understand. Stand get it yeah. You're the first time you ever want to brag to. Everyone just did jerry yeah. You wrote in to us and you're like hey i finally had sex. It was sick. I got caught being stoned and when my parents asked me if i was high i insisted i had in fact been crying as you might expect expect. They didn't take the bait that like i was in high school again. I'm twenty two and just graduated college and now my dad so upset. He's driving to the city to pick me up from work so we can talk with me. Not backup is your dad. Mike huckabee your dad twenty two years old that is he's out of the house where i assume zuma's out of the house and maybe not actually my roof my rules yeah yeah but still come on chill out this actually though oh is so funny because i feel like every kid in the history of kids has thought that they got by their parents when they were hired drunk and the parents always now oh they always always always always no although a good excuse better hey hey status visiting as well like yup. I always do an ankle smash mash. Hey if you've ever used a crying excuse wink. He can't see you yeah. I like replay all the times where it's like. Oh yeah my dad deal another. Yeah crying. Brian is pretty good. I also used the just went swimming at the pool right. There's a lot of chlorine yeah heavy chlorine day today yeah i just i always get hungry after you go for a little backstroke stroke i watched that <hes> the life of dogs movie whatever that just can't marlene me right sa- fucking tear jerker or that youtube girl are i just i moved to l. A. still haven't ran into russillo and the first friends me and my roommate made here were from his work and i- drunkenly broke their stripper pole at their apartment tonight. We all hung out okay. That's actually not jimbo because if you have a stripper pole at your apartment. I don't think there are any rules. That's basically saying to everyone no rules in in this house if you break something who the fuck cares agreed and it's much better that you broke a stripper came over and broke it because then that's lawsuits city right then you're in trouble i would love up to see like wonder the guy who got the stripper pole in their apartment. How bad failed actors are they yeah like they're definitely they've been in l._a. For a few years basically sleep playing swingers every night on friday nights like watching it <hes> stripper pole. This is sick. Yes sir. They're just playing n._h._l. Ninety four and ordering takeout and put the polls still in the back the way there's nothing more lonely pathetic than an apartment with triple when they're never strippers over yes oh hypothetically. I could have a stripper right now now. Oh on the other side of it what would be great is if you have a couple of floors and you have a fireman's pole. That's dream yeah. That would be a dream that is produced stairs firemen also if you have a stripper pole and you have strippers over you can also get an a._t._m. For your house and then charged like four ninety nine and transaction fees every time your friends take money out living in a strip club as gilbert arenas in west virginia when we were west virginia the a._t._m. Fee was guess three eighty dollars no other way. Oh really nine thirty five dollars. It's like how they made all their money jesus christ it was insane. People in west virginia have thirty five did i it was insane. It was in iran money yeah and they ran out of money. They ran out of once not that we would know. He's got one more here. <hes> went went to saratoga recently with my dad. Who's worked rented out a space in the new eighteen sixty three club real nice area with your own betting kiosks. My body gave me a tip and i hid a trifecta for roughly two hundred dollars on the first race. I went to bed on the second race and in the excitement of entering my picks i forgot to hit return balance in walked away didn't realize this until about fifteen minutes after and the kiosk has obviously been used since then lost about one hundred seventy dollars didn't win a single race the rest of the day but you know what gambling karma we'll eventually come back for you like that one. You'll get at some point. You're going to win a game. You shouldn't have one and you can be like yep. They're paid forward yeah. The gambling god's work. They they at least have a little bit of a heart sometimes <hes> all right brennan. Thank you so much. Can we get a prediction on the bills season. Oh yeah easily eleven and five. Oh it's gonna win the abc's this year <hes> we'll be right there. You know that that fourth day against the patriots you're gonna come down forward hank. You're gonna come down probably all right yeah. We definitely want to go back to bill's mafias offers that is that the one on christmas eve or whatever <hes> ono. That's the one in new england with <hes> okay so we do like in buffalo. Is i think whatever september number thirty s to early. You need to go to buffalo. We gotta go in like november. I like it for the bills. Though there is no big expectation buildup you'd much rather play the patriots. It's if you're one and three then if you're like ten and five and maybe you need this once again to the player and it's also very funny watching a bills game september and like the entire city of buffalo doesn't know how to deal with a suntan and they're all stuck in the sun and like what the hell is going on food real gross and sweaty lobster dammit <hes> <hes> all right so brennan. Thank you again for the charity awesome. Hopefully you guys yeah hopefully guys had fun and josh allen pass to happen as bishop time school. Yes there you go okay. That's our show stone cold steve austin coming on monday one of my favorite interviews we've ever done. Do i love you guys oil yeah.

Mason and Ireland [hr 3]

"All right. So here's the thing k. playing heartened fantasy football this week. Yes, he's a Redskins fan. Yes, sir. Adam Schefter announced on Saturday night because I think four nets gonna play. So I-. Benched eight. And I took my now. He's up like thirty on me. Early game was at ten o'clock. You sit a woke up and not thirty made sure his roster was set right? And then kept the move, John job man, right, exactly. Do these things and you're exhausted. The problem is Alison. Yeah, Ellison's went two years in Rohner Gallison bogus teams undefeated but Allison's is under Alyssa win the last two years. We had the first period so we have been okay. We actually we need to team up together, Josh, because the one thing that cannot happen is we cannot let Nance when the league. MS three and own outta town, right? And he will preserve, he will never let us forget it him and Randall. We let them stay in the league because they were grandfathered in even though they don't play the Lakers anymore. Right. I don't care who wins the league is lines. It's not Nancy. Randall say the I will trade you at the end of the year. I will trade you oughta guys. The combo. So all the people out here in Josh heart is joining us born ready already. Take picks over over there, Josh you, you had the best summer. You were the MVP of the Las Vegas summer league. There was a chance that they weren't gonna let you play a lot. They change their minds and let you play. Why do you think you had the success you did in the summer league? Because of Tom, I worked in before, you know, the preparation for everything that I did up to that moment. I, it was a big thing I worked out with mile Osama for, you know, hours a day, working on my job, working on my ability to shoot off the shot off the dribble Lakers assistant coach. He's a great player college about that. You know, be able to create for myself so and others. So all that preparation I had. You know work with working out with him. I really wanted to go into some kind of testing experiment and see where you know I measured up and that's kinda why winded to play. I wanted to compete the Hotan because you know the bass player you play, you know you work out going one on no one on one on one for guys. You know, I worked out with coups allied in the summer, but no, you want to compete and you wanna play, you know, ball and s you know something I wanted to do. So did you have the option about whether or not to go to some really? I had option to play a game or so in each right. Luke told me a story that you talked him out of it. They were. They were thinking about letting you play one or two games and coming home. And you said I'd rather black. Yeah, I would. I think I would have played every game. You know that that's something I didn't play the second half of the second game in a second and third game, and the why didn't play that is because I actually tweaked angle the first game doing a going cut and move through a terrible past. I stepped on stepped on the air FOX ankle. So it kinda, I tried to play the next the next day that first half, I just couldn't move and say, I gotta take a couple of days off of this one. And then I got to Vegas and I'm like, man, I wanna go, I wanna go. And you know, they let me and they know they like the defied it had they liked how wanted to compete. And you know, you know, worked out so what you like your I mean LeBron James, which like to have James on your team? Yeah. Oh, he was the tall guy. Yeah. I thought I saw him around a couple of times this summer. Beniamino is is the energy to buzz around is this team to the city? Just in general, is is amazing. And we have high expectations for this year. We want to make a deep run. You know when you had the best land, you know, in the world, you know and you know soon with you, you know anything's possible, Josh heart joining us. One of the things I second look about this. One of the things I hope doesn't change is that the young guys on this team last year were really vocal. Yeah. And I've talked about the so LeBron is obviously the leader of the team. Is there still room for you guys to sell kind of exert. You're definitely, and that's something I, you know. I've always kind of worried about that a little bit, not not in a being complacent, not in the sense of, you know, skill wise and getting in, you have to defer a little. But is more so in us growing in our selves into a leadership role, I s something I didn't want us to get complacent in or just kind of stop just because we got, you know, great. We've got Rondo Lance, easy, devel- guys. I've one championship gotta have been through any every possible situation they can in this league. So obviously we've got to defer to them a grave, and we got to learn from them and be sponges and soak up at all the knowledge that they're giving us, but we can't be quiet. We gotta make sure we hold accountable. You've gotta be vocal and you know, we've got to grow ourselves. We can't just say, okay, guys, we got, we got these vets here. Now, in Anna's, I, you know, next year going in, you know, it'd be the same. You know, bug with free agency and doing all that kind of thing. And we're like, you know, we, we didn't grow them much. Lucia wrote his Paseo. So that's something we gotta make sure we hold each other accountable from talking with Luke. It sounds like you guys are going to compete every day. Oh, definitely. It s. That's what we, we were trying to build something that we took great steps in last year at this competing every day. You know, we, we didn't just have off days. We had. We had full blown practices and we will competing trash. Dog does all that kind of thing. So that's something that we want this, you know, be a part of this culture and as something that especially now, you know, we got, we got competitive guys. We have on these dogs. You know, there's going to be a lot of that to see Josh heart with this last year. I said several times during during the games that you were, if not our best on ball defender. Certainly, you know, in our top two is Stevenson in your class defensively as he one of those guys, I think he is. I think he got a little more shenanigans game. No, definitely. I mean, no, Casey's a great defender, right? Lance, no, he bring now and who has that toughness that grit, that dog mentality, you know, myself, Brian's actually, great defense doesn't get credit for he doesn't, but he what he can do. He can put off ours. He's I saw walk out of Derrick rose. When rose was the MVP five games. Exactly. I mean, you know, we got a different kind of defensive makeup issue, and I think we can be a top five if not top three defensive team, you know this, is that where you guys can improve the most when I compared this team to last year team, is that the defense has gotta get better? Yeah. I mean, even ask, you think we obviously I wasn't here two years ago. Thirty and then we would like, I don't know, like we were like tough fifteen. I ended all, but I think even from there now we laid death foundation with a young is Macao Kuna with Brandon Ingram. You saw those guys who were little bit shakey different guys, Kennedy. You could guard his own shadow. The year all, but now you saw, you know, his mindset change and how he was bought into, you know, on the defensive end. So you see that Lonzo who you know who would bought in and you know, gotta lie about on defense and at the end of the year. So we had that foundation with our young guys mixed with the defensive presence of Bron lands jail. Rondos got quickly. So we mixed that foundation with seasoned veterans who can obviously teach us, you know certain things, but who are great defenders in also, I mean, we're going to be, we're going to be good defense team expectations for this year. What makes a good year. It's not just about the place. We want to make a run. We want to compete chips here in LA. We don't. We don't get hyped about play offs and you know, that's what we want to do. I mean, we wanna win at all. I know whether he's every going into every season. That's what you wanna do. So obviously does to go and now says about the preparation to to reach that go, there, you know, great teams, you have Golden State who want throughout the last four. You have Houston's, you know, who's tough guy Toronto over in the east Boston Philly got great teams, but we gotta start building that foundation signed up preparation tomorrow started in the summer, but just, you know, making sure fine-tuning things tomorrow when trying to can't officially starts and you know, making sure we keep building auto way to the end of the season wherever that is for those of you who don't know, Josh was at the beginning of building Villanova's dominance of which there now the best program in college basketball, but Josh was on the first championship game. Actually, you get to go to the game last year when they wanted again, the name. You hear all the time as the the guy who all these NBA teams. One is your college coach j.. Right. I'm curious. Do. What do you want for him? Do you want to keep his. And. Nah, I'm yeah, I, we talked about it this, this all season. This, the interest. He was getting what I think about and stuff like that. But I mean, he he what he's meant to Villanova there. You know, the school in general has been monumental and what and the greatest thing I like about him so much. He's he's a good coach, but he gets out of his players and he wants under the day to the players are better people than they are basketball players. And I'll give you an example that when when we had him on one day and I said, so you're the guy we have to think for turning Josh heart into a shooter directed me. And he said, judge heart turn, Josh shooter. He goes when we got him, he said he had an in them, but but he he talked about your work ethic. He d deferred and gave you all the credit. And I think good at that. He is. He's amazing. And he, he changes so many young men's lives going going into. His program at the high character that he that he high character culture, he instills in his program and everybody around it. I mean, you go there for, you know, not even a year, oh, four years you, you're going to gain now you're going to gain going to be better than what you were before. So you know, obviously the NBA is always a big goal. I know you know. No point interest for him by me, he changed so many lives of young men there think he's where he meant to be. Definitely. I, I hope he he retires being Villanova coach. You know, hopefully went into couple more national championships, a no being bigger than basketball. All right. Let me ask you things. Wrap up. The biggest difference between you come into your second year compared to a year ago. What do you know now that you didn't know then. How. Hard wa. I can't say that I'll say it for you. I thought they thought you would go in this journal area. It's hard to get calls when you're a rookie. Oh my God. I got the worst calls. I don't wanna get you find, but that improves now that's definitely going to improve. Because I actually the wrist wanted minute, but actually think they're hard on the rooks. Oh, no, I definitely. I mean, I've I've got a lot of a lot of. I know it's tough for me playing James harden guarding to me, but I was going to monitor. I was guarding the, you know, some of the best guys. So it was tough, but me definitely going in, you know, I think you get a little bit of a little bit more. Love also would argue that you're going to be smarter now too, I think. Oh, Dobie. Tell me that the more you got into league, the more he learned what he could get away with. Oh, definitely. It was really good point. Yeah. I mean, you you, you know, rookie. You don't really give you don't really get away with anything. And then you know you just every year after that, you know, you just keep learning about, okay. I know you know, and it's like you really started thinking more as I. Okay. I know official here here and here. So you know where they are? They are. So it's like, okay, I know if I'm locking sherline I, you know, I can have my hand right hand. Yeah, they won't see that because there's so much stuff going on. So you pick up a lot especially with vets, they teach you a lot of these things. So Nah, I, I think the the recipe a little bit more low. So that's what you know different is a player, how how are you different as a person than you were a year ago today? I think last year it was just a lot of uncertainty. I always thought I belong here, but it was just kind of like, okay, you know, it's it's weird because I'm very low key Abbas mall front group at like four best friend, three best friends in in in a brother. So it was just kind of like coming into LA, you know, Hollywood, this weird and it was different. I think I've really been more, you know, right now more confident in myself and this is I am of human being. The, you know, I'm not called a Benelli lifestyle, go game and do all that kind of thing. And that's, you know, before it's like gaming, the loser. And I was like, actually, I know now. That's your gaming. Like the world champion and our thing that everybody's as funding me for gaming. Something like I said, I'd be, oh, in the club, don't all down. I'm just like, you know what? You know, I'm twenty three years going on twenty four been here for you. I'm was, I y, you could turn pro after your, hey, my, could you give ninja a game in fort night. Year that is, I know it is, but us he's, he's in a, you know, you ever see. Like LeBron versus a high school kid that's. That's exactly. Yeah. So I would not challenge him. I mean, we'll call we talk, but now I'll play with them, but I'm not letting us. Have you ever played Ireland because he is he is a killer for nightclub. I've never played gut. Never. We don't want to want any. Loosens. Oh plan, right. They tried and they were just trash out play. I played with him a little bit. I can't. I is there anyone on the team in your league? Larry Nassar was learning. That's really good. But now I mean, now we've got all these old dudes like all these old. Four. Nine? Yeah, there, although I think I'm seriously think we're in. We're in Cleveland the night before thanksgiving. Yes. I honestly think we should take the team bus and just drive it to Nancy's house. There. He just show up on and hours there when people takes him, what was I? I was game four game four and I, they went back to, yeah, I saw him when it support him a little bit kinda wanted to see. I didn't watch any other. I've really watched so many other playoff game because I, I wanted to, you want to be on them. So I was down when I went there just because I wanted to see how felt it for you a final game. So I did a Bill yet the next game like next day, after that I was at his house to follow like one or two o'clock. We're over there this game. Maybe all brought a PS four is and all that. Even here when he came to see us when he came in to raise your yes for you with us, we we, yeah, we both traveled with it, but when he after he was trading, they came to play us. They were. They played the clippers and then soda had a day in between this all day. If you stole my social media, it was me him to about a friend in my living room for big flat screen. TV's. Everyone has their own PS four, four nights Super Bowl. Larry's has got a nice little big house out there. So the bottom line is you're looking for Josh during the season, don't look in the clubs now online. Yeah. Hey, great to have you back. Thank gradulate. Great summer. Thank you very much. I'll give you a better game next home. Forget lead or not cued you about like forty Rothlisberger going tonight. He might go off for one. He's on the road ever goes off what? Yeah. All right. Famous last words. Thanks, Josh. When we come back, we'll replay a LeBron from earlier, if you miss LeBron and the twelve o'clock hour, we'll have it for you coming up next nation in Ireland. Live from Lakers media day ESPN LA room for you. What swung it here at the end of the day when you had to sit down with your family and decide, okay, it's it's time to jump why LA me and my family knows huge part of my success throughout my career. And you know, they played a huge part in a month. This is my wife and my kids. We said down and I gave him two options and and the teams that I was looking at and ultimately came down to Los Angeles. It came down to the Lakers and everyone in the family get a vote. Absolutely all the way down to my daughter. So it's your daughter, we oughta she'd be four next month. She signed off to sign though. And come in here as opposed to go on. You know, now the idea of a super team is is really big you. You elected to come here, which may be more of a a, a new opportunity, a fresh opportunity. Talk about that decision. I made a decision came down to ultimately steal, wanna win, and notice franchise, and you know what magic being here, rob relationship with those guys and also Genia. I know that this franchise belonged and wants to be at the top of the helm. They always been. So you know, when I got an opportunity to talk to magic a sit down and talk about what you know, his vision was, and you know, knowing how much of a champion he is not only on the floor, but off the floor, you know, it kind of fit right into my DNA as well. You know, knowing that they're not settle with just being mediocre, you know, you would never think of the Lakers as a mediocre franchises. You don't think at a Yankees like that. You don't think you don't think at a giants like that. You don't think it'll Cowboys like that. And no matter if they win or lose, they always have that championship DNA that championship mine. So. It made it easier for me last year you played for the Cavs. They met the Lakers twice the Avs one in Cleveland, the Lakers won the game here. You played against all these young guys. Now you've had a chance to play with them. Is there anybody in that group that surprised you that you thought now that you're playing with them is maybe better than you thought he was or different than you thought, you know how. Be is length. You know, when you go against them, you kind of, yes, you around him. You get a sense of how you know how long you know his length is, you know, not only there's wingspan, but you know the way he plays the game. And you know, I'm looking forward to seeing him. Continue to grow. Coups is definitely use this summer to become very, very dynamic, and I watched him, you know, throughout the summer and also some of our runs, you know, obviously with Zogu into clean up in his knee, he hasn't been able to get out on the floor and play five on five with us. But if you look at them, you can see he's a lot stronger. He put in a lot of work into the way Rome, you know. So we look forward to that man, but you know, it's going to be exciting. I'm looking forward to getting on a floor with these young guys gained up and down running. You know, a lot Ma, my highschool, lowly coaches always told me a fit like a west coast player, and always I. Why said because of west coast players like to run just run, run run, and I'm looking forward to. You know last year after one of your games with the the Lakers you said something to launch, we don't exactly know what it was. Can you can you? Can you tell us the gist of it would've just of it was you know. At the end of the day, no one can define who you are, but yourself, you know. And you know, when you're young, you get caught up listening to what people say, we'll people thinking that you should be people saying what your game should be. But at the end of the day, you know, no one can define who you are besides yourself. And if you put into work, you commit to the game than a game of give back to you. And that's all this about. So you know, so got a lot of talent. You could tell you love the game. You could tell his teammates, love playing with them, you know. So he's going to be great for his franchise. LeBron James is our guest on ESPN LA LeBron last year I could argue that you had your best statistical season at age thirty three now, so secret for people that follow you. You spend a great amount of time and money taken care of your body. You train everyday. You lift weights. You've gotta cry therapy thing going on, which I stole from you. Thank you. What do you think has allowed you to be that dominant at that age? I just commitment to the game itself. You know, never take. A game for granted and never take shortcuts. You know, I'm a huge believer in pry myself on the process, you know. So I give everything to the game. I'll try myself not on away way room, but mentally on his basketball floor, and you know, not take care of my body. You know, I'm not, you know, over to understand the best recovery asleep, you know. So I don't ever disrespect my body when it's telling me to get some sleep and get some rest because this is my profession and providing and be anonymous floors what I truly believe in. So you know, to be able to be at this position in my career where I'm going into my going into thirty four and December December enough feel just as great as idea, seven, eight years ago, you know, pretty, you know, yesterday Tiger Woods first tournament and five years. She actually said something about you in the spring. He said, what LeBron has done is remarkable to be able to adjust because we're not going to be as at as athletic as we used to be, and you've got to do it in different ways to be fluid and still that talented and be that. Good. What are your thoughts on Tiger Woods went in his first tournament. I didn't get an opportunity to watch it. You know, Sundays is always kind of predicated towards my my my kids because they in school all week. And also I watch a lot of football as well, but I think it's a testament of him. Just never given up no matter what you know. And like I said about Zo you know, no one can define who you are besides yourself. And you know, in especially in a in a sport like golf when you are just an individual or tennis where you can only look at yourself. So you know, I think it was. It was great for the game of golf. I know it had to feel good for himself to know that he's back where he belongs and he's is the champion. And he's always been. But you know, you only defined by you, you know, and no, no matter what everybody else say because nobody can never walk in your shoes and and usually that's where it comes from. So you know the problem with himself. I bet LeBron without doubt, my favorite thing you've ever done is the promise squawk love story. I could talk about it. Thanks. But here's here's what I want to get in by the way, if you don't know what I'm talking about. Just Google LeBron James promise school. It is a public school and then key in this. It is a public school where LeBron has partnered with the Akron school district for at risk kids. So these were kids that were struggling and now they're going to go to this brand new school. Now, I know at some point you guys all had a meeting and you said, let's try and do this at the end of it. All of a sudden you've got college tuition for anyone who graduates free meals all day GED and job placement, bikes and helmets. What's the one thing that you said when it was all said and done? You thought, man, I never thought we'd get that and you got, what are you most proud of that you were able to get almost proud of the actual the meals throughout the whole day and and not just breakfast and not just lunch and everybody. I grew up on breakfast and lunch, but there was a point in time in a day where I was like man on the little bit more energy. I wish I had snapped. I wish I had a snack. We provide our kids what a snack as well. When that point in time today, were you like, oh, needs something to keep me going. We provide our kids with that as well to keep them going. So. Didn't know we can get it done, but we gotta done and the kids definitely enjoy. It's great, I, it is an amazing project. So last week, the Hollywood reporter did a big story about all of the entertainment stuff you're working on with maverick Carter. You've got Space Jam to and Kugler is involved there. You've got a miniseries with Octavia Spencer you shut up and dribble you what? What's the through line? What's the theme of all the projects that you're working on is all about being authentic and being able to tap into people's emotion where they feel like they've they either they've been there no time in life or they can understand that character, you know, like you said the film that we have. What caveat Spencer's the bio pic of Madame CJ Walker, who was the first black African American millionaire back in the nineteen twenties. You know. So you know, a lot of people don't know her story. She started hair products back in the nineteen twenties and became a self made millionaire or self woman millionaire. You know, time was unbelievable, unbelievable million dollars in nineteen twenties is like, I mean, we can only imagine so for her to be able to do that. And for me to be have a dual project shut up and dribble obviously, we know the history behind that and the story behind that. But just doing, you know, Space Jam or Ryan cougar. Obviously, Ryan cooler being as great as director and writer he is doing. You know, one of my favorite movies of the year in Black Panther, you know. And also, you know, I have a couple more things that we got going on as been great warriors of low, you know, of a low liberty down in Miami following these caves out of liberty city that are very unfortunate and obviously go through the same things that I went through as a kid being an inner city. So being able to find their stories and using football as the to to help these kids become great. So. So you know, I'm happy to be a part of, but like you said, being able to tap into, you know, every day emotion of humans with these characters. And these people means a lot to me because I believe stories and true stories as well. We all built on lasting for you LeBron. The face of the Lakers is a pretty cool job as you know, not very many guys have had it. Jerry West had it will head it Kareem magic. The last guy that had it was Kobe your teammates. And I think for for some reason, people out there think that there's this competition between you and Kobe. I know better. What have you have you had a chance to talk to Kobe since you signed? What's your relationship like with him now, just talk a little bit about the fact that you're taking over as the face of the Lakers from guy you really resign? Absolutely. I mean, he was one of the first people to text me went outside with the Lakers and just told me, you know, welcome to the family family and, and that means a lot just because you know, I even go all the way back to when I was in high school and you look at guys and it was a point in time for me to make the decision. If I was gonna go to college or go to go to straight to the pros and obviously I made the right decision for myself to go straight to the pros. But you look at guys who made that jump before? It was like the Kevin Garnett with Tracy McGrady, and it was a Kobe Bryant in to see what he's accomplished. What is career watching? You know him winning the championship when I was. I was still in high school and then coming up into the ranks and watching him beat a champion, and then be be able to compete against him being an Olympic team wing goal with him twice. You just you just have Meyer someone like that to dedicate himself to the game basketball only to begin a basketball every single day. So to be playing for an historical franchise where you have magic and you add Kareem, and you had Jerry West, will you ask shack, Kobe then, you know, people know my name as well as welcome. Welcome here. Toledo Ohio, five years ago, so good to have another Ohio. Absolutely. All right. Right your time. All right. LeBron James and thanks for opening blaze pizza. I got one around the man. The one in Culver city. It is awesome pizza man. All right. So we're back live now at Laker media day. Yes, I wondered since I'm a Laker employees, do you think, oh, get a discount place pizza. I don't. I don't either. Don't think you will. Yep, I do not think that will happen, but we are rapid. I think. I think we are done tied there. No more players loitering around. No other players, everybody's gone home. People still waiting for LeBron James maybe to walk back through. All right, and and so it will. We'll take a quick break. We'll come back. We're still waiting on an update about a key to leave, and there's also Andrew Whitworth news. We will. We'll get that to you net and the dodgers starting lineup is out for the game in Arizona that next to there's a lot of good stuff coming up like that Mason, Ireland ESPN LA we are live from Lakers media day. Finally, were able to talk normal volumes, normal Mason in Ireland show volumes. Thanks to everybody from the Lakers for making this thing work. It was a good show today. We talked to Rachel Rondo and its name is pronounced Ray John. Yeah, just and he was great. Yeah, he was great. Oh, I've, I've heard in other markets. He's been a crank. I really didn't think he was a cream to be very, very thoughtful, actually, kind of intellectual almost guy, land Stevenson, Brandon Ingram who still looks like he's four. Eighteen years old. Javale McGee was here just turned twenty. One young isn't that crazy? Lonzo coups Ma. Luke Walton was here, Josh heart was here, and of course you just heard from LeBron James. All right. So we've been very Laker Centric today. Yes, a couple of things. First of all, dodgers played tonight theories no room for air. Steve. I know you think are relaxed up their game and a half up slip up tonight. There's room for Joe's rock news right in the door. Hey, hey, hey. Hey, hey. Hey, Kim. Hi, I'm hearing a disembodied voice. Who is it until you got you. Two knuckleheads have been talking for three hours and didn't even mention my boy, Anthony, Joshua. Why should we because this is Michael Thompson who who, despite the fact he's a Laker announcer blue Michael. I couldn't even find that fight on TV. When was it? Where was it? How did we not even know about it? I watched the fight last week. It's a new. It's a new network that's coming on DA's z. and design this. What is this call l. z worked at Elsie was over in England working to fight? Yeah, l. c. is one of the original guys say hired. They hired strides on the of lake. They hired a bunch of big name sports. We get it on TV. No, it's supposed to be coming on soon. Yeah, I had to streaming on the internet, so. Defined this fight, Michael, you figured out how to stream something on the internet. I don't believe it. Oh my my, my eight year old neighbor came over and hooked it up for me. Yeah, I would. I would think so now is it true that Wilders next fights going to be at Staples Center? Not that I know of. They haven't announced the site yet, but it's going to be December first against Tyson fury, huge fight going to be at Staples Center. The win by Joshua on April thirteenth. But, oh, it's going to be out of the question is Michael, will you? Will you go? If it is table center and you and I are in town, we go, will you go to the fight or will you stay home and watch it with your champagne and nuts, champagne and nuts on the sofa baby too far to drive. Michael, Michael, you gotta get out there. I know out there man be in it. If they let me park in the loading dock and how like backstage pass, I'll go, oh, for God's sake. It's the world has to cater to you. So Michael, I did. You know this weekend I was. I was at USC Friday and and the Rams yesterday wins both times. I wanted to turn you on your soccer fan, right? Soccer, love it. You have got to go out to this new l. AFC stadium, no chance it is Michael. It has the, you will not have to rub shoulders with people. They failed to pick Michael up at his house in such a great experience. It's like there's a game. But then there's also like clubs and restaurants, and it's all in one. It's it's like, nothing I've ever seen. I'm imagining that that's what the Rams stadium is going to be like, but just on steroids, even even bigger. I mean, open bar and food, and I mean, it's was a crazy scene. It's a great looking atmosphere has seen. All the games on TV and it does look like a cool place to be watching soccer, and they have great fans, and you're not coming now too far to drive. Far away. All right. So Michael had after hearing from LeBron how do you feel about things for its finals? You asking me that I've been telling you boys warriors Lakers in a west finals that nobody believes me what happened to the rockets, they'll just die. No, they're going to be there. So we'll Utah Jazz, of course going to be a difficult journey Mace, but to beat to the Western Conference finals. But yeah, you gotta go through what to Houston and Utah to get there, but the Lakers a very capable. Yeah, it'll be interesting to see what happens. Okay. Mike, are you are you on today you haven't you helping George today and George? Kirk Morrison who he is. Gerke more whoever he is from the Kirk more Zeo in three raider family. The only Morrison I know is Adam Morrison, Adam Morris world champion champion, right? By the way, the dodgers are facing a lefty tonight. Robbie Ray, which means later Michael Abby. Thank you, Michael. Enjoy your show, which means they got the heavy right handed lineup today. So Chris Taylor leading off JT David freeze who's been great for Manny, Machado spat and cleanup, key k camp, dosier grand doll and then Kershaw pitching. So it is the only left handed hitter in that lineup. Is Kerr show kershaw's the only lefty? Yes, and you know what? Not about enter and tonight though, look to make their magic number five, their magic number six, John six. Yeah, but they're only half up was seventy. Go six. That's very counting down. That's very rebel. No, it's not record. We'll see. Did you not see. Them win, but do they kick the extra point yesterday or did they go for two? It ended fourteen nothing right. I think it was fourteen nothing. It was not close. It was not close now. I think the dodgers rounding into form really well tomorrow we almost have to have a football Monday since we really don't know football today. Well, and and also the Rams play on Thursdays right short, we still nothing unto leap. What would happen to Whitworth Whitworth somebody, John Clayton tweeted that Andrew Whitworth had knee surgery and then Andrew Whitworth tweeted back. That is news to me. So. Completely wrong. John Clayton is a great reporter clearly got that one wrong. And yet two to four weeks for for Marcus Peters, but you're right, John, they're, they're, they're cornerback. Play has been absolutely fantastic. This, here's something for you. The lowest, three and out percentage in the NFL belongs to the Rams only seven percent of the time. So they've gone three and out. They've also allowed the fewest passing yards of any team in the NFL and fewest catches too wide receivers. But I think a lot of that, I think maybe all three of those stats are tied to the corners like like until even Marcus Peters have a lot to do with that. We know Peters is out for two to four weeks and we're waiting on word for to leave. So Kirk cousins could be looking at jobs coming in here with the Vikings on Thursday because no Peters, no to leave means that did a lot of backups are going to be playing in the secondary. Yeah, it's going to be Sam shields. It's going to be Nicole. Roby Coleman. And yeah. And again, still no to leave with Toledo. It's an ankle with with Peter's it is. They said they were both ankles McVeigh said last night they were both at Peters is a calf. Got a great to cash grant calf strain. So that's two to four weeks might be optimistic? Yeah, I've sprained it cath before it was out for longer than that. Meanwhile the, that's it for Jimmy Garoppolo. He's done for the year tornado c. l. and they are bringing in Tom savage, at least for a meeting. I don't know who their quarterback would be on Sunday then was Bobby Beth, herd's nephew, j better. CJ Beffa. Wow. Not good. No, not good. The decks are really clearing out for the for the Rams to make a run and as for USC by the way, did you see when they brought chess Rosen yesterday, I, I didn't see it. I saw red zone and Josh Rosen hasn't played the whole game. It's seventeen to sixteen. The bears are ahead and the cardinals have like four minutes midnight, even like three minutes to drive down the field to get the game winning field goal Rosen, who hasn't played the whole game that coaching Arizona's says, okay, go. Get your in hadn't played all game through him into that situation. He ended up getting stalled. He threw an interception on fourth down. They didn't win, but I just thought it was a really tough spot to put him in that coach was thinking he has. I think he was looking for like a little spark and right like that you, you couldn't put the spark in until three minutes to go in the fourth quarter. Yeah, apparently not. He is going to start. They've named him the starter for for this week. So Josh Rosen will get his literary roads career Allen Mayfield all starting and darn darnold four of them. Yeah. So four rookie starting quarterbacks and the other one, we will not see. Lamar Jackson Friday night, and let's not go. This happens to flacco or they drift completely out of out of any sort of divisional race tonight fits magic magic healers. Did you see over the weekend? The Steelers caning offers for living on, but I did, oh, trade trade on my fantasy team trade him somewhere. Good. Well, you know where he would come on. I, I don't want in Seattle Seattle, no anywhere, but Seattle anywhere, but the NFC west. I don't care where he goes anywhere, but the NFC west. Well, the cardinals don't need a running back and does need to run the Niners could use one. Though. The Niners. Yeah, so that's a that's. Not one at there either. Yeah, that's a good. Good call. Tampa Bay. We don't need in Tampa Bay. We got fits match matching caso. Fuck, we'll see if he gets you through four quarters tonight. I'm betting six thousand and change in mythical money on the bucks. It's an interesting bet. Part one. I never been accused of that, but it's an interesting one. And as for the Trojans I've got, I've got like two pages of notes that I'm going to save for tomorrow. Okay, good. Because there's a lot there and any time you get upset about USC I just want you to know. It could be worse. You could have chip Kelly. Oh, I saw they lost to BYU this week. No, they didn't play this week. No, they lost a b. y. o.. I. I wouldn't. Okay. Wait a minute. Schefter is updating. Keep delete. This is well, it is still it suffered a high ankle sprain Sunday that will sideline him at least one month. Oh, Marcus Peters is considered day to day. Though with a Thursday night game this week, it will be tough for him to play pearly sources. So you had it earlier that Peters was out well, Vinnie Bunsen, your has him out two to four weeks. Well, now Shifter has a keep till Leib out a month at least. Okay. So that's really bad that, but I think it's, I mean, that's part of, here's the thanks part of being what I liked him. Here's what I like. They're both coming back, right. So now the I think I don't even think the Rams need home field. I think the Rams are the best team in the NFL went healthy alls I care about is they're not out for the season. I'm not. This is not a fatal that'll Astor for the. Nope. I mean, a fatal disaster is Jimmy Garoppolo Taryn his ACL, which by the way the word in the stands yesterday was Marcus Peters. They mentioned his ACL, so that was a much better outcome. So. Manages a that. You kill worst. All right. All right. There you have it. We are done. Do I have a read to go? Yes, I've read to go so. And we'll let you know that George Sodano is coming up next.

Spagate!

"We're back. Kassy's me that's raw the New York. And with us is the famous, Diana Moskovitz Ramal as high Diana. I every line or hall that is the being credible enthusiasm that we all enjoy the dead cow speak energy. We're going to have a lot of big energy today. Great energy. We're going to have huge energy are excited to talk about important. I'm not all solved drugs. That diana. There's I do want to one small story that both. You will appreciate but I'm biased. It's for Ross appreciation. I was at a doctor a doctor's appointment. He's like checking me out and all this stuff checking up on me. And and some point he asked me about you know, like how I'm doing. I'm like, oh, fine. And all that. And he's he says I like you, and I say instinctively, I say back to them. I assume the board voice, and I I like a you. Is that like a reflex test? That's like the equivalent of the dad joke version of wrapping on your knee with a little rubber mallet. Yes. It was a toll Ruth lex. Because I say to my my wife like as a joke because from an old algae show. I like a you do you like me? And so when he said that to me something of my brain was like, oh, I have to say you back. Which is for a doctor that is not familiar with your cognitive functions. That may initially appear to be some sort of defect. When in fact, it's just a sign of normal function having returned fully. Yeah. You could say that. Think I don't know that that is that is high cognitive abilities right there. That's agree to disagree. That's mean poisoning. Sadly, anyway, Diana is with us because first of all we've always wanted. I n on the podcast, but Secondly, Diana and Chris Thompson together got together on Thursday night. And we're chasing down the story of Bob Kraft, getting arrested at the orcas of Asia parlor, which came out on Friday. But as staffer she in Chris bust their ass, and Chris essentially became the newly minted Florida correspondent have side by driving literally across the fucking state go visit the massage parlor. So any way? I can we talk about what happened in the build up to the announcement from the police. Yeah. Yelling can I guess do you want to start on Thursday night? I can start their Thursday night. Tips came in about it and people are like like random Twitter eggs were tweeting about it. And you know, I think we're all, you know, like, we take tip standardly were, you know, we usually have some an arched. Brown. This skepticism. Yeah. All right, whatever. But there was enough smoke that it became sort of clear that we should look around more. And by the time they had a press conference on Thursday night. Everyone in that press room seem to know like an open secret about someone being on the list, right? Well, here's a happen. So we started getting tips and. You know, like like you said you wanna take them with some skepticism? But also you don't want to ignore them. And So Chris, and I started working it and Chris's specially was in contact with one tipster who we promise to keep an honest. And so I'm going to be super Baig not because Krista work has asked off please just take my word for it. But it's hard to talk about that process without potentially identifying. So when we promise to protect. So so so Chris's working these tips talking to people. Hey, what's going on? What are the rumors? What we were hearing. They consistently said it was something about a sex trafficking, staying sex trafficking Sega. So I just started to look up on Google for news reports about sex trafficking and saw that there had been a series of press conferences already held them. Florida's treasure coast talking about multiples stings had I don't know if sting technically the proper word, but large and mass arrests on the treasure coast of massage parlors with people being charged with soliciting prostitution, and I just remember they gang. This just happened. Twenty four hours ago. We're getting these tips. You know, admittedly, string laid off. This is a part of Florida that used to work at very first job out of college was at treasure coast newspapers, which is the main newspaper chain in that part of Florida. If you've read our blogs, UCS linking to TC palm dot com. Shoutout to TC palm dot com. Thank you for his job. This shitty. Florida birds that are in the treasure coast. Just so people can situated in their mind. They're all lovely birds. Naming any of the lovely birds. That are in the treasure co. So that people can. The charter coz as sports podcast. It's where Vero beach is when the dodgers had spring trading Saint Lucie county portait as where the Mets have spring training. So it's that area almost runs Jason in a way to lake Okeechobee. Which is that big blue dot you see in the middle of the state during the housing, boom. You might have heard of port St. Lucie. It was a really hot housing property. So that's kind of your general. Let's say it's about. For Jupiter, which always said the southernmost end of it from Jupiter Tam is probably about a two hour drive. Probably more than that depends on traffic. So that's what we're talking about. So. Okay. I just it helped knew the location and midly. So I just started poking around reading the old news reports, and it just kind of get lining up with what we were hearing, especially what Chris was hearing from sources. And so, you know, sometimes it's good to be lucky Vero beach. Police had posted online their entire press conference on YouTube. I remember literally I had thirteen views at the time. As I watched the whole thing. Because I figured you know, why not something I can listen to through my earphones doing other things and my ears perk up when I keep hearing there's someone there probably a reporter keeps asking these questions about if anyone prominent was involved if anyone with the NFL was involved, but he or someone who might have formerly been involved with sports having that is we are that is not normal. You know, again, Chris has been working sources. So he's gotten some information as confirming at the very least there are rumors going around all over the treasure coast that Robert Kraft was caught in one of these mass x trafficking arrests. So we, you know credit to you, drew, you mentioned this you said it might be time to put up the bad signals, and we did put up a blog. Basically, I think the headline was something to active what's up with his questions about the NFL at police conference about sex trafficking. Which was literally it that was the question. We put it up. We started hearing for more people. I know quite a few people send us a a thread on Reddit where someone had said that craft is going to be announced as being caught up in this. And yeah, we couldn't like we couldn't quite get it when hundred present on the record yet. But we knew enough that basically what we did was. We wrote ahead of time stories called pre righty someplace as you call it. A matter. Everyone has a different name for it. And I. And I. He was just impressed by the lingo. I think I was saying. Saying. I I don't know if anyone else ever says a matter that people who used to work at the Miami Herald. But that's what we called it. And I still slip up sometimes slack and everyone. I know what you're talking about Anna. So we pre wrote something because I mean, especially with civil like Robert Kraft, there's the six Super Bowl 's there's so much there that and we had an idea, but was going to be announced because all these arrests previously were pre like there were differences, obviously. But they were sort of broadly similar charges similar setup. So. We priroda as much as we could about. Well, here's what's going on. I think I wrote up the stuff about law enforcement because that's my background. Chris gave me background on, you know, craft what we know about him as the owner of the New England Patriots kind of merged together left a bunch of holes in their said, you know, when this announced in the morning, we can just put in the actual invoked confirming low, we're we're pretty sure and put it online, which is what happens you police held that press conference and. They the announced what we all had suspected which was that one of the people out of twenty five was the Robert Kraft who owns the New England Patriots. All like holy shit. Yeah. We were that whole night a drew and we're both on slack. Although we contributed virtually nothing the work that you did the the rationalizing process. I'm sure if you scroll back and fight it where we're just like, I don't know. It doesn't seem like Bob Kraft. Well, no, it kind of seems like Bob Kraft like actually definitely seems like Bob Kraft. But also like I have a hard time believing. It's Bob Kraft, and that was going right right up until the press conference. There is the part of it that the little detail that stuck out in my mind is that there is another billionaire named Robert Kraft in Palm Beach, and we were like it could be the other billionaire creep with the same name who doesn't own a football team. So let's hold off. And then it just like it kept happening. Yeah. I mean the center bro response was like, well, I had daily dollars. Throw to come and shit like that. Yeah. I know. So this guy is that night. And I think it's worth keeping in mind. But. Because I remember I'm sure you guys do in Jim Irsay was arrested for I don't remember the exact exact charge by having a garbage bag full of pills. Trump, right. This is actually silly. He was stopped because he was suspected of driving under the influence, and I think we can all agree that Jim Irsay is man with enough money to get a cab a lift. All the cars. And so I remember cautioning like just because. Even quite sure is the best way to put it. But it would not be unheard of for someone to with a lot of money. Nonetheless, make a decision that good or battle a lot of us. Make it keeps. I mean, honestly, like we live in a world that is at this world a country that is his moment. Governed by the bad decision processes of horny septuagenarians, this point we obviously we shouldn't be scandalized it. It's still though all of it just felt so skanky and weird. That was the part of it. I think that Chris did. So well, the on Friday was he was driving like zooming across the state to try to get to that Jupiter press conference before it started and didn't quite make it, but then just like hung out at that grody strip mall where orchids of Asia was in wrote a great piece about that which you edited to. I mean that was the last bit of our, Freddie, coverage and ought not to be surprising. Like, you know, the point of these NFL owners, they all love having. Veneer of class like except for Jerry all love having this sort of the Mr. presence and all that shit when that just dirty whore shit bags, which it shouldn't be a surprise respect to Jerry to for having a fucking party bus that travels in like, it's not a, you know, exactly a feather in his cap that he's got like a Madden cruiser with three stripper poles in it. But at least he's not driving like so credit where it's due. So dying y ask you 'cause how Lieberman did a post for us that noted that even though the words human trafficking is sex trafficking. Those phrases were tossed around a lot known is actually been charged formally with human trafficking in this particular case, and they're still allow that to be worked out. And I think you and I both know an hour. I wrote about that the NFL will fuck this up. Anyway, no matter what happens, but what is. In your mind. What is the ideal? Course of action out of this that would that would be something. Roger Goodell would never do because he's too stupid. It's so hard to talk about because I feel like I mean, I've said this before cels eight again, all these personal conduct policies need to be blown up there. It's bad policy on top of bad policy on top of bad policy, and don't they don't work. But it's hard to know. What Roger like, what could he do that just wouldn't be a disaster? Because I let's be real the whole idea that Roger Goodell is going as you punishment is patently ridiculous because Robert Kraft is boss. Important place. Anything it's worth and spoiling because it talks about the insanity. We've gotten to these sports leagues in terms of expected them to be judge and jury because what other workplace, and I'm not saying that this means we should be hugging. A graduating Robert Kraft that we should feel good about what he did. But what other workplaces there a high level mid manager? We say we really need you to figure out a way to punish the guy who owns the place. With your job. Here is going to be most of it is press conferences. And of course, we'll need you to formulate some policies every now, and then we will need you to act like a supreme court Justice for somebody who's more powerful and richer than you. So just bear that in freight. And so I feel like I don't have what I could tell Roger Goodell to do because he can't do anything because he's being asked to punish his boss. And how does it make sense? How does that work who punishes their boss of the only thing he can do is something that's completely about public relations? Not about anything substantial. I just don't know. Why struggled figure out what? Why he could do that wouldn't look dumb and stupid or like it's just PR because how I keep coming back. Like, how do you punish your boss? The way though, you know. And I think that's really where you know, a gun. This just speaks to the hypocrisy of these personal conduct policies because if Robert Kraft was a player not named Tom Brady, he would be cut, right? Or was in poverty, they'd give him probably the minimal punishment. They had you under the personal conduct policy. And that would be you know, he owns the team and to stomachs it that's how that's the benefit of having billions of dollars. I guess for sure. But I could God. Like, if if your players in you, see this, and you know, that it's just gonna to be some meaningless punishment. And yet your asses on the line for doing so much less cheese that. Yeah. I can't even imagine. I English thinking about it. And. Player, you know, like he'll make their own decision because he's a more on his chef to live with his Moroney choices anyways. So the other thing is that, you know, you're right. If it were replacer consequences would be very swift. And in this case, of course, craft will be allowed to play the entire legal process. And I assume Diana that the NFL must know that the video those alleged will reserve will service at some point. And then that is when they act yes. Yeah. Videos, part of a police investigation as under the Florida, sunshine law. It would be considered a public record unless someone can find an exemption that they believe applies. So yes. Well, it hit in theory will come out, and then we'll see. But I think good good examples look to the Jim Irsay case which also involved video because there was dash Cam of him doing the roadside test. You know and also with with Mark Cuban where they had the rampant stories of sexual harassment sexual misconduct at the Dallas Mavericks, and it just shows you they both still own their teams. They both get quoted all the time. They're both held in high regard. You can argue those are more severe transgressions earth say was driving while intoxicated at twenty nine thousand dollars in fucking cash in his trunk along with all the pills. He could've killed somebody. And also with Mark Cuban that's a workplace situation and the workplace that was an NBA workplace. Right. This is the Dallas Mavericks, so. A part of the NBA. This was something outside of his work as an NBA owner. And yet, you know, he did he got some punishment. But he's still there. He's still quoted. I still see him, quote, it all the time about what what can we expect for the future of sports people? Don't want his thoughts. He's still cited as a genius investor. So yeah, I I can't imagine the NFL doing much, and again, you could argue that's appropriate because Aubert craft has the right to watt sex as as we all do as human beings on this planet, and I cannot see enough about how Lieberman's article on deadspin about a lot of the misconceptions out sex trafficking. Please read it. So there's a very intellectual argument for not. At least terms of sex in our thoughts on sex with physician of sex about not completely losing our shit's over this. But I think what can be very upsetting for people is again just that hypocrisy of seeing how the players are treated versus how the owners are treating and seeing how the orders hold themselves out as these moral arbiters when actually. They're just like us. They just have. More money, but they are actually just like us for years. Or worse because they're certainly probably some bad decisions. We have all not made because we could not afford to make them, but they can't afford to make them. And sometimes they do. Breaking come right back. We'll talk about other stuff. We'll be right back. What's up dead casters terrible feeling on a Sunday night of impending doom of the upcoming work. When he sit there and think to yourself did I spend too much money over the weekend. Wait a minute.

Are you ready for the vagaries of the dead cast fund bag? There is no way. I'm ready. You know that they're. We want reader will writes in he says a co worker Silvia back clippers game where he went to enduring halftime Steve Balmer did one those mascot, mascot type trampoline. Dunks. Got me thinking, which owner would make the best mascot. I can't believe I'm going to answer this question. I can't either. But. Got. Older. Questions. Facet wonder my working too hard. I have more free time because I don't ever think about anything like this at all. I just think probably I should work less is my takeaway from phone back questions every time that I can I can think about things like like this. Why it oh? Just pick. None of. We this discussion about how they're these millionaires who hold them billionaires. I should say who hold themselves out is these great moral arbiters, but are actually just incredibly flawed human beings with way, more money. And so I think I'm just going to go with non give give the job to someone who actually needs the paycheck. That's a cop out though. Yes, sir. I have to castigate for you for it. Because so many too many owners already as they ought to behave as if they are mascots Jerry up in the lecture. Jerry's the the obvious answer here. And I don't feel bad about giving it for all of that. Because like the idea of him dressed up in a cowboy outfit firing two six shooters in the air and hopping up and down like Yosemite. Sam is. Yeah. Obviously be great. You give that job to somebody else? But he's very qualified for it. And I think it'd be unfair to him and all he's accomplished not to acknowledge what a good job. He is doing being a cartoon cowboy right now. Okay. I don't know what else. I just sounded that Steve Balmer did a trampoline dunk and didn't break both legs. Yeah. Because I just passively watching a basketball game. I'm worried for his health like that guy's gonna punch himself in the head during some sort of dunk celebration. If he hasn't done it. It's going to happen soon. Like the odds are just in that favor. Like, I'm watching the video now and he dunks. And he's so fucking fired up afterwards. He's like developers developers. What's funny is that he's like that? After like Sindarius Thornwell forces a jump ball like he's just that's the level that he operates that. I don't think it makes them necessarily good, dude. But it definitely means that like like he's fired up enough during clippers games that he may not fully need the trampoline in order to dunk a basketball, Diana, would it be good policy to force owners to if they want to attend the game of the team that they own they have to dress up in a mascot outfit. That would not be the worst idea only because I think if you're in the mascot, well, I wanted to begin the mascot outfit kinda can't believe I'm following this line of logic. To have to be on the field and actually do the work of being a mascot. If only I do under how often owner ever even on the field, unless they're accepting trophy and do like the idea and some cheesy way of just making them do this very grungy job and having to be on the field and hopefully people read over them. I'd really like for this. I realize I'm giving away the plot to God. What was that show undercover boss? But. The I'd be okay with that. Oh, by the way, speaking of odors on the field. They go on the field, especially Jerry because he wants to meddle. But also Arthur blank is down. There a lot and talk about a perfect mascot. Oh, yeah. With the tour Lee mustache, just looking like Salvador fucking Dali there. I think you'd be good if they. Yeah. Like, certainly Arthur blank Ardy looks like he's wearing some sort of disguise. And the idea that like he doesn't look like he's disguised as a falcon. But he does look like he's disguised as like the bad guy in nineteen thirty two film that starred Humphrey Bogart. I think I think crash should be punished by having to be Pat patriot on the sidelines and put on that full fucking stealing beam out that they have now that's the only I mean, honestly, also if you have to put us your boss like, that's the way. I mean, the idea of being like, well, I'm going to issue a statement of extreme concern. And then you won't be able to be in your sky box for two games. Fuck you who cares? But if you're like you have to do the Maka Raina like like for an hour every day that your team plays like that. Actually, that's got some teeth in it, Diana. Kevin writes in is there any fan base in the NFL progressive enough to tolerate capper Nick joining their team. Where would he be most accepted? Where would he be most accepted most accept it? I'm being completely honest. I don't know that there's any place where he would be completely accepted. I just don't think that I I'm confident saying every single one of those cities has some racist. No. American cities. You're talking about with racists. And I know this is a really for easy crazy concept. Right shocking. Shocking. Fucking what completely accepted as a maybe too high a bar is there like there's places that if the team signed him the fans would revolt, and then there's places where maybe they would revolt less, right? I think that's that's accurate. I mean, Kevin suggests Seattle although Seattle this all started back when Seattle kick the tires on cabinet consigned Austin fuck. Yup. He's just both the LA teams nationally the charge because don't cares about the chargers. So they can't care. If they suck and somebody would only attract people to that team. So I I think I think in general all of the fear of him is overstated and that people would bitch and moan there'd be a huge sort of media dustup over it would eventually go away after like a gamer two that's my feeling, but I could be totally fucking wrong, especially if he's not playing. No, diane. You can be an all going mess or would bog down and just become accepted. Gosh, what you know. So weird to think about because on the one hand, we look we know owners they just react to. Bad PR? Right. I mean, the example at least within our lifetimes is Ray rice, right? It was all it was fine. Until the tape came out, you know, and the PR got too bad. So right now, I think they're just are all in in fear of this bad PR. Whether or not that would actually happen. I don't know. I want to be really optimistic and say when you look at. All the I wanna be I guess what? I'm trying to say is I want to be optimistic. However, I realize that is possible that I'm giving way too much credit to people and. I what I really want is as that that shouldn't matter to ownership. And the problem is that it does. So this fear, which may or may not be true in which I want you hope is not true. But it might be because America has a way of really proving optimism wrong. It. It's there, and I know we've talked about this before at work NFL owners are just ruled by fear. I think all sports team owners are just NFL owners, especially so because right now they have the biggest pile of money, basically out of all of them. So I just the only place I could see because competent has a previous relationship with the ownership. There is an Francisco, right? He has a relationship with the owners there and. In theory, San Franciscans like to pride themselves being more progressive. And now realize there's a slew of history that proves that wrong. But even then they haven't so, but especially because of his previous relationship with management because I do think I mean, you hate to say it, but winning solves everything right? If a team signed and captured and they started winning. I think a lot of people and it's so messed up, but it's so wrong. It should take that. I know. I know, but but it is. So then the question is do you have ownership that will whether that storm until if this happens until the winning happens, you know, because that previous relationship I could see it in San Francisco. I can't see it anywhere else. There's just too scared. And if they did start winning immediately thrown under the bus, it would just be a disaster. That's what was so striking about it last year when it just like teams the Packers or whatever just like choosing to fuck up with the Sean Kaiser, which I guess I last two years ago, but you're just like you're choosing not to make the playoffs like the Texans the year before that where it's like this guy is the difference between like, Tom savage and not Tom savage, and you chose and Tom savage to so to whatever I mean, that's how you want to getting a bunch of money out of the NFL in a when you do them for blackballing. You is that you could just. Tom savage is game tape showing that in court to like gasps from the assembled gallery is enough right though, is winning nothing as much as like broS hate cabinet. But they love using winning as a panacea for all. Should he gave your? The winning starts. It's it's fine. A lot of things become fine the minute you you start winning just. The question would be who you know, who could hold out to reach that point. And it appears to be none of them, which is incredibly sad. But you know, I always Billy. The NFL puts out is, you know, we're met in and we is about overcoming your fears. But it's you know, I don't know how you feel drew. I feel like it's a it's a league that is incredibly ruled by fear. Right. Like to the point where all these stats on on when you should go for two points. Right. As when they allow the two point conversion back into the league, everyone thought who were going to seal these exciting two point conversion place, and the almost never happened because these are people entire organizations for the lowest level systems all the way up through the owners who are too scared to even potentially screw up a two point play. Most of the time. Let alone to really. Let alone to do. What's right? Wanted to take a stay on some of the most important issues of our time. You know, like when you can't even be brave enough to take a two-point play. Yeah. So that's my thing. I think it's a league that is. Really ruled by fear and went I've talked to people who've been a part of the league. It's your unless you're Tom Brady, your constantly afraid, you're free to being cut your just afraid of getting in trouble. You're afraid of being a person all the pundits pick to say. They suck this week. There's so much that you're afraid of and it in a weird way. I think that's a part of this too. You know because. Yeah. Signing capital requires. Gotta hate us this phrase, but like having some balls, you know, you're doing it. You're doing the damn thing you're going to allow people to go fuck off. I just don't see anyone doing that. That's not how these people role as not how they've been for a long time the exact kind of hopeless take I support. Fittings? Support my hopelessness. Let's let's take a break. We'll come right back. Pay. I'm Melissa Kirsch editor in chief of life hacker. And I'm Alice Bradley life hackers deputy editor, and we're the hosts of life hackers podcasts. The upgrade on the upgrade.

It's terrible. We can help. Find the upgrade wherever you got your podcasts. We're back. We're still deep into the fun bag. And here's an important question from Andy that will play Diana will play into your newfound, California snobbery. Andy writes in call me crazy by strongly believed that the heat is our bullshit. You have to build them yourself in different ratios right to wait forever to even approach the cast iron plate unless you're okay with three two third degree burns. And they typically cost more than everything else on the menu. Diana with Andy fajitas are bullshit. This is really like had me on this this. This is either there's a fajita question. Are for heat is bullshit. You know, I has been a long time since I've ordered fajitas. I think honestly for the reasons he describes this is it's a lot of work in when you're very hungry. Who who has that had time? Also, most portly. You can't really be surf a heat as if out of a taco truck, which is obviously we're the best tacos are so also trying to think that's probably another reason. I haven't had them for a long time. So yeah, it's it's a lot of work. You know, you have I think I'm just saying that I'm okay with his with his feelings on fajitas. You don't have to order for heat. Is you could take them off the menu. I won't notice. I'm still gonna order the tacos. Also, just be a patron of your local talk truck. There are the best support your local taco truck all problems for bullshit fajitas or cancelled drew. So here's the most I could say for for for heaters, which is I think that they have outlived their their usefulness as a as a food, but that like during their the, hey their heyday, which of course, we can say, you know, round the early mid nineties think generally those in the fifty two studies field agree. That's they tend to peg it that they were a gateway drug for people that had otherwise been eating like the Ortega taco hardshell with the mix at home like fajitas are away to like, there's no, you know, really strong. None of the really interesting flavors of like Mexican or Tex-Mex food are in there. But it's like you're getting used to the idea of eating something out of a folded up tortilla. And then like the next step from there is like, maybe you're not so afraid to visit the taco truck, maybe, you know, that's sort of an awakening for you. And then of course, once you get on the real shit. You don't really need to step back to heat is you don't really need them anymore. But that as a as a gateway entree they have served their purpose. But it weird though, the concept that you're gonna get more use a certain food if you're forced to make it yourself and overpay for it. Yeah. I think that that appeals to a certain type of human idiocy where you think you're an expert because you do it. And so you're like, well, I mean, I don't know if that means like you go someplace and somebody gives you a taco, and you're like, I make those at Chili's. If be exactly that simple. But I think. Yeah. It certainly there's some there's some brass to it in terms of like just bringing out a thing. Putting in front of someone being like don't touch that pla-? It's extremely hot. Also, you're on your own. That's bold. And I guess they gotta respect it on its merits the amount of table real estate that they take up is just astonishing. Yeah. It's fifty grand slam breakfast to comes. A Ray them around. We'll see that fajitas improve the ambience of a place that you're in as they passed the smell of it is cool. But just you don't need to have that land at your table. Like, you're you're grown now. The best ones I've ever had were in California had them in Palm Springs them authentic Mexican restaurant, and they were so fucking good. And so I. Even though you said he cancelled as someone who grew up in the mid west. And has thoroughly bland tastes. I'm fine with the mostly because the reason that you order feet is is because they give you a lot of food. What what their whole pantry on the table? That's definitely true. Where you like if you saw like if they brought it out to you before. And they were like we're going to cut up all these bell peppers, and they're gonna come back out to you on a tray, which is again, extremely hot not touch it. All right, cool, L E four peppers at dinner. Plus, whatever protein you're giving me Pablo writes in Diana yesterday, I propose to my NS NFL fantasy league friends. This bet I believe levian bell. Will not be able to get thousand rushing yards season, whatever's team am I crazy for making this bet who's gonna win? No. I don't think that's a crazy about first of all getting thousand yard just hard. It's not forget that. And he did not play all last season. And I I'm sure he's doing work to keep himself in shape, but that's still not the same as playing a game. So there's always going to be questions about immediately ready to start running again is gonna take some time to get back into the flow of the game. And then there's just the other factor is how whatever two hands up with. How does he work without offensive line? Right. I think this is some super wonky. But you know, there is something about away a running back works with an offense line Ray. It's almost beautiful thing. What it it's working? Right. And they just magically opened this whole it's just the right time. And he sees it and he glides right through an immediate closes up. When when the system is working, it is despite the immense brutality of the sport beautiful thing, a work of art. And and then when it's not working it is real. Really not working. And so I, you know for me with a running back whenever they join with the new team, I'm thinking, okay? You have to look at the quality of that team's offense of line first of all in general than let alone of the able to just, you know, work work. Well with him to have that timing to get the whole where he needs it at the right time. You can't. You know, you can't predict for that. Especially not even knowing who is team will be yet. So I completely think that's possible that he does not break a thousand yards. Team is I think Pablo's doomed I think he's gonna lose his his money because you're right about the you're right about the offense of line. I n but also living bells the guy who sits down and Bruce Cup of coffee in the middle of the scrum before he decides to pick his whole, you know, and so ever team overpays him. I e the jets like when they give him thirty million dollars. They're gonna they're gonna bend over backwards to give him the ball as much as possible. Even though he's the sort of guy who can have as many as receiving as he has rushing. I just think that they whoever signs him and gives him the money will feel compelled Roth to give him the ball five hundred times and kill him. Yeah. Which is the whole reason that he sat out last year too. Right. I mean that he was he knew the Steelers determined to grind him into dust and then NAS offer him a contract. So that's obviously sucks, and that's work place issue at the NFL. And all that I think he'll rush for thousand yards in nine games. I think he's extremely good. And. Stream -ly upset, and if he has the opportunity to pick his own team, like I hope he goes someplace where he'll be able to be in a system that plays all of his strengths. I mean like, I don't the jets are the jets. I mean, they're they're they are the team that I think of as being most inclined to throw money at him, and they just fundamentally stink a lot. And so I don't know that that's right for him. I would love it. If you went to Kansas City, or whatever. But you only get so many years. He obviously knows this. And it'll go wherever he gets offered the most money, but I should Diane is a ceiling fan. Yeah. It might be tinged by. News. He's cooked nothing. But I think he'll have another few find years. I don't know again. Like, this isn't something that we're that familiar with what happens when a really good running back takes one year off in the middle of his prime. Like, I don't is there any especially if he's healthy. Is there any precedent for that? Sean Gilbert is the president Shawn suck twenty you'll. Gilbert showed up weighing like four hundred seventy five pounds. So. Yeah. That would that's a bad precedent? But I'm intrigued by this. I will enjoy keeping tabs on it. Let's come right back. Come back with more questions in the Trump question of the week. Stay tuned. We're back back again, we're we've got more questions ago, Diana. This is from Alex Alex writes in I am going on a trip to Europe this summer with some friends. This will be my first time flying are imagined that everything that can't go wrong will go wrong. Or if I'm stranded in Europe with none of my stuff because it was accidentally launched out of the plane somehow flying over the Atlantic. Do you have any advice for me, Diana Alex wants advice for traveling in the air for the first time? I was super paranoid. The first time I flew the first time I flew. I was very small. And then there was this huge gap where I never got on an airplane. And remember the first time I flew, basically is legal adult and being super nervous at it's super logical to be nervous about about flied. It is but excuse me, five thousand bazillion different statistics, the safest form of travel. If you are driver. The most dangerous that you do every day get in your car. The most thing I will today is drive home from this podcast. So so first of all know that you are in the safest mode of transportation possible. I also know that that's probably not the most soothing thing to here. So what I did see I did not check my bag, which everyone was so funny. I was convinced it was going to get lost. I remember I didn't check my bag got to the airport crazy early. And and that everything went fine, and I made it to for my cousin Danny's wedding, and I'm still alive. And I've flown many times I've said string. So there's a long way of saying first of all I feel you. It's totally normal, especially the bag thing. It's I was paranoid for years about losing my bag and had all sorts of gadgets and tricks for putting everything into my tiny carry on bag because I was so certain that one bag would be lost. It would be mine and that was. No way. I always think is actually being self involved. Like, yours is the bag that will be lost. No. It's not gonna be. So just look I feel like my vices do all those little things might seem silly. But make you feel okay. And then you're just gonna get through it. And it's going to be fine. And in a couple years, you'll be checking your bag like the rest of us. And just doing work on the plan like the rest of us because you're so excited to not have to check your Email for three hours. Yeah. But do the things you gotta do, you know, but. I self medicate. Yeah. This is the dog that hasn't. I. I this is such an anon- dead gusty because I don't. That said. If that is if there's a way that you can do it safely. And. And without getting yourself in any trouble. That's that's okay. Because I don't I don't I I mean, credibly incredibly boring, and I can't believe that I work at this website. The cool guys that are like coffee. I'm sorry. Like me, Andrew super badass like men in our forties. Taking the doctor prescribed dosage of zanex before a long flight. Just. Hard core shit to do that. I will say, you know, if if our Gerald writer in our doesn't have to. Q can also do it without it. You know? But you'll be okay. I promise you're gonna be okay. You're going to get through it. You're not you're not going to lose your bag. You know, did he say how long afloat this is this international or just it's your Europe? He's going to fuck in Europe from where he's going from New York. That's not a long flight. The phone. Follow up questions on this. Especially on my God. I'd fit overnight flight. I'm very sympathetic. But yeah, also New York to London that's the same distances New York to Miami spine all the play for three and a half hours. You know who? Who? God, I am so square. I can't say did you say New York to London was three hours. Concord. I really don't think. That's correct. Because I remember looking this up when I lived in Miami that Miami to New York, I believe it wasn't a huge difference from my from New York to London. Have you guys done? It. Can you tell me how to I think it's like six and a half or seven hours, depending on the Jetstream? Yeah. I have. You have enough. I says basically like flying the Los Angeles one thing. I don't want to be posturing like I'm the guy that whatever like banks a bunch of h before I take a four hour flight or whatever I don't drink on airplanes. And I find that. That's the part of it as you get older. I never really was at into it. But like the thing that that to me the challenge of being on an airplane for a long time. Like, it's not gonna fall out of the sky. They're probably not gonna lose your bag. If they do it's like, you're in Europe. It's a fun story. They're not like, you know, you didn't land someplace where they haven't invented underpants yet and the idea of like the physical challenge of being in a plane for like eight hours or longer like when we flown to Europe or Asia like it just sucks like you feel gross. Like if you like our wake sleep and wake up again, and you still haven't landed like that's a fucking drag. And there's no two ways about it. But like drinking on a long flight. And then feeling even more disoriented is like it sounds like a value. Add I know I just made it sound really cool. But that has never worked for me. I agree with you and Diana. I I usually don't drink on flights. Because if the flight is miserable and you're drunk. It's more miserable. Yeah. Yeah. If you're high you smoked pot flight will seem longer. So that's not good. I've taken Advil pm on red is like is. It helps me sleep otherwise I can't sleep. So we won't take a sleep aid on a red. I get that. But I actually don't I don't think self medicating is particularly useful and Diana. I hate to use correction. But I looked it up New York to Miami is roughly twelve hundred miles New York London is three thousand four hundred fifty nine that's close. That's pretty close. This is not in charge of geography. Final question is from cliff, and I apologize in advanced. I n it's the Trump question to weaken. It's disgusting. It's cliff. Does Trump know how to put on a condom? There's no way he could do it correctly. I apologize in advance. For the Diana has left the room. No, no. I'm I'm still here. I'm still here. I I'm a paid professional. I'm still here. No. Here's the thing. What's the one thing that this question? I'm afraid that the the question as revealed itself as to disgusting answer. We found. So I appreciate Diana, tolerating it for seven seconds. I appreciate raw tolerance.

Go ahead and come up with if you're a man or a woman the worst person in the world for your spouse to be having an affair with. Stugatz. It's greenie these libertas show with stugatz on ESPN radio. Stugatz is on the record. I don't know. How many other people are doing this? But Stu gods has predicted that the LSU Tigers of Ed or Jura. We'll defeat Alabama this weekend at home as a two touchdown underdog. Yep. I have said that I said it's Weiss now and I haven't picked Alabama anywhere else. We'll have a covered my basis yet. But there's still one more day to go this week. Oh, yes. This is what he does. He makes the bold prediction, and then predicts opposite on other venues, that's not the point. There aren't a lot of people predicting this LSU's defense might be the best in the sport might be the only thing that could slow that offense. I happen to think Alabama's better at offense than LSU is at defense. But LSU has pros on defense that is a elite defense. I just can't imagine Alabama being slowed by anything other than injury. I know it's hard. But just the Georgia team that almost beat Alabama last year. Granted they lost a couple of players from that team, but they held Georgia to sixteen points. And they've held really good teams to less than twenty five points. This great d. Pence. But what happened on the road at Florida is something that happens in that conference? Ed or Doron has said that he was not bold enough. You can't be tough guy coach, and then be a wimp on fourth and short when you got the game in your hand. But Dan, this defense it's not just that game. It's miami. You give up seventeen. I mean, these are ranked teams. It's Auburn you give up twenty one. But Aubert's had trouble scoring against everybody this season. Gus malzahn teams to this weird thing where they're really good one year bad the next year and can't move the ball. It's bizarre. I'm sitting at the time. Auburn was seven I know they're not very good. But at the Togo's teams aren't very good Miami's not very good. Those teams that you mentioned ranked or not rank they're not very good there. There are a lot of pros on this defense, greedy Williams. But then white is a star linebacker hard pressed to find a better linebacker in the nation and he suspended for the first half because of a targeting penalty. But Georgia is good. And they slow Georgia. They did. And so this is one of those weekends. We've talked about this before that college football has become a largely regional sport. And there's one national team and a lot of people spend their Saturday's thinking that that might be the Saturday, then the one national team will lose Alabama's a dynasty a juggernaut a ratings monster, but they are on the precipice. I believe of ruining everything the way that you accused the Golden State Warriors of ruining everything because if they can go into Baton Rouge and decimate that defense because there is good at offense is I happen to think they are it's game over man, Clemson, Ohio State, forty two to twenty that happens to Ohio State that never happens Alabama, Alabama might lose. But you gotta beat them. Because you returning a missed field goal. One hundred yards. They don't lose like that. They don't lose forty two to twenty the way that Ohio State. Did they should end the season. If that happens if Alabama goes in there to LSU in that environment at night on the road and beat them by. Twenty-eight? They should just all the students. I'm telling you that. I think I'd rather watch watch that or night that Saturday night Alabama second team led by Jalen hurts play against Alabama. I know you want to see this. You wanna see I tell environment? Good defense. You wanna see? All right GM will put this on the poll who has a better chance against Alabama's first team Saturday night. Would it be the second team of Alabama led by Jalen hurts who's lost one game at Alabama? Or would it be LSU? I'm asking you. Because I legitimately thing that the only way that'll be a game is if I love 'em plays its second. Because I don't think anyone can slow man. We ain't seen this the team that everyone knows is better. Also has a quarterback who looks better and doesn't make any mistakes than anybody in the country that some out Nick Sabin waited twelve and a half games the put into his lineup. I would like to see somebody put pressure on him. I have not seen it. Maybe LSU can put out. That's why I wanted to. I know he did it against Georgia in the fourth quarter last year. I know in a big spot national championship game. I want to see the biggest biggest spot, but this is a crazy environment at night against a really good defense. I want to see that that was a crazy environment at night against the rarely good defense that he converted whatever it was third thirty for the championship. I mean this weekend has all the makings. Does it not? This might be the best sports. We. God, you essentially have Dan, I'm telling you when you have this scenario. Okay. It's a scenario. I like to call after all of that you're left with blank. Okay. And after all the college football games the SEC's essentially the final fours this weekend. He got Kentucky. You got Georgia. You get LSU you get Alabama. Then you've got the NFL, and you got the Rams at the saints. And after all that is done. Did you Kentucky in their Kentucky's? Number nine of the culture. The big game Kentucky at home the number nine of the country. They win this game that go on the SEC championship game. And after all that's done. You are left with Rogers and Brady how about that. Biggest weekend of the year. It kicks off tonight with raiders Niners helmets collide in the bay. Well, let me read you a stat on that one that I want to find from Adam Schefter on raiders Niner. We don't even know if CJ Beathard is blade. He's fifty fifty. So we don't know if his helmet will be colliding tonight in the bay who's the who's the backup to C J Beth who's the third night beat top savage. No, Tom savage, Thursday night and Nathan Peterman Sunday. It is the greatest weekend in the history of sports. He this is from Adam Schefter. Okay. And this is what you have to look forward to tonight, Thursday night football, America's most popular sport. According to Adam Schefter, raiders and forty Niners are combined two and thirteen this season. The worst combined winning percentage in a prime time game in week eight or later since the nineteen seventy merger. So this is the worst games since nineteen seventy that has been played in primetime by allegedly professional football must win for both teams though. I wanna way to kick off the greatest weekend is for history with a must wait in the Betty. That is Adam Schefter with facts pooping on this Ford, F B. And after all that dead. I would seriously you love with Brady and Rogers, I mean after all after savage against car. That's the that's the small. That's Tom hangs on the castaway island just trying to make a fire by rubbing two sticks together. But then you get all of a sudden Tom Brady era. Jurors. I. I five. These show aim free time for some ads. Love of God. That's how I would win that capper Nic collusion suit. I just bring savage into the courtroom the way that in a few good men. They brought those two guys keeping the airport logs, and I would just want. I would just I mean, no jug put it on the poll. Guillermo would a judge ruled collusion against the NFL. If you just simply presented as evidence, Tom savage. So that's it. So Colin kaepernick's defense. They tried out Tom savage, then they let him go and they rest their case. That's right. You just walking through the courtroom. You get the whiff of Tom savage NFL is guilty of collusion. I mean who the hell did the Bill sign they signed Matt Barkley yesterday. And that barklay he's probably the best of the bunch the last few prime time nationally televised games feature. Derek Anderson, Nathan Peterman and possibly Thomson put this on the poll as well on Instagram and Twitter gear mo- stugatz. Asked this yesterday during one of the breaks. I think it's a question worth pondering on the internet. Did you think you'd live to see the the day where what is what is the name of the backup quarterback Landry Jones where Landry Jones would not be holding a clipboard for Ben Rothlisberger? Did you ever think? You would live jarring that day because he's now in in Jacksonville. Joneses. And actually liked to see that. It can't be as bad as Bortles headed. It's impossible. You'd actually not seen Landry Jones since as Phil Simms was calling him one of the best backups in the league. He threw an interception. Is that how it ended for some? That's how it ended for both of them. I can't believe it. That Philip brought his little brother on our mission into orbit. How long until it? Get there alone get their ally until we get there. Now, I can't believe how easy it was to save hundreds of dollars on my car insurance with Geico what's best button. Do what's this button? Do buttoned-down. Believe at Geico could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance. Donlevatar people who love this show tend to really really love Stu guts. Thank you, Stu gods. I mean. Yeah. The love is unreasonable for a man of your despicable core. These live with our show with stugatz on ESPN radio. I want to ask this question is reasonably as I can. And as patiently as I can because it is something that is confounding to me we've been talking for years and you've seen recently with the metoo movement. We've been talking for years about how sometimes in this audience in the sports radio on inch. You can't really tell by the way that they talk to Meena kinds or sarahspain or Katie Nolan. You can't really tell whether men sometimes love women or hate women. And one of the things that's been coming in since we started the show talking about Derrick rose is people blaming me. Yelling at me mad at me saying why would you suck the fun out of the field? Good of last night. And the way that I'm accused for sucking the fun out of it is by asking the question a question that I don't know the answer to which is how are we supposed to handle those allegations that he's got in his past on this night of overwhelming feel good. And the question I want to ask you is. How is that me ruining the night? You don't want to look over there. Like, I'm asking the question of how do you handle this as a night as the sport rises up to applaud someone is anyone in the present climate allowed to escape what is their questionable past even if it's allegations. Even if it's something that hasn't been proven. In a in a court of law. Like, I am asking the question legitimately. How am I supposed to handle it? And I'm being told I'm sucking the fun out of it when I'm like, wait a minute. I'm not I don't know how to handle it. How was that mean sucking the fun out of something? I'm going to attempt here to tell you what I think people are trying to say if Derrick rose didn't go for fifty last night. You wouldn't talk about the allegations at all. They're only important because he scored the fifty point. I know, but it was the outpouring the outpouring basketball saying, you just a general me. This is the question. I ask you though, the I'm I am talking right now too largely male voices male ears male thoughts that is he's largely what I'm talking about. Now, and many of them might argue the thing that you're arguing about, but I your perspective on this is not the one I'm interested in. I'm not interested in our perspective on this one. I'm interested in how woman would say that should go as a journalist. How how is she? How does someone else feel that one should be covered because it's very easy for the men in the audience to get mad at me for asking question that I don't have the answer to. But the idea that men are the ones who have the answer to this one is funny while they don't so I mean, listen Bubba men want men are for the most part pretty basic. So they just want to celebrate the fifty point. It's easy. Was a nice story. Turned it all around and do that for seven years that was career high seven years ago, he eclipse that last night, but I think you're right. I shouldn't be up to us. It should be up to women. Let's just move on though is that don't talk about it. But if I'm asking the on the people who are angry, and I asked them, hey, what am I supposed to do with these allegations is someone who talks about these things the night that Derrick rose at the lead news story in sports because he scored fifty surprised all of us is their answer. Don't mention it is their enter look the other way is is the answer. The people who are mad at me. Go bleep yourself. Dan. I don't wanna look as if they are the victims of what the woman accuses Derrick rose up like that's the part. That's confusing to me the way that men feel like NAMA opinions the one that matters on this. On the night of Derrick rose that my opinion bleep you lebatardshow for even putting this in front of me, which is just like what did I put it on put in front of you? What is it something that is on his resume? But I'm trying to explain that Derrick rose put up fifty in front of all of us. And there is no way that anyone. I'm not just talking about you, Dan is discussing those allegations. If he doesn't go for fifty. So it feels I'm telling you what the public, but people who are listening. You're saying, hey, it feels like oh Derrick rose does something good. So then you have to bring up the bad thing over there. But and it's a horrible horrible thing. He's being, but we can do it this way if you want I I've asked this question before in another context, also not knowing what the answer should be. But the last time we talked about it is Floyd Mayweather getting mad at everybody and trying to pull the press credentials of women who tried to ask him these kinds of questions. They were asking them about crimes in his past conviction in his past. They were. Asking him because he had a big fight coming up where he was going to get all the glory the attention the money, and they felt it needed to be put there. They women argued and were successful in lobbying HBO and lobbying Floyd Mayweather. They got their press credentials back. And so why were we doing it? Then we were all doing it then because women chose to bring that in front of us. And the reason they chose it because they were offended that Floyd Mayweather was continuing to get applause in money and glory and applause in money and glory, and he wasn't being asked seriously enough about the things in his path. Right. So that makes sense Derrick rose really hasn't been a big story or relevant for a long time. And last night. He was these story in sports. And so I I would understand women wanting to bring hey, you're rooting for that guy cheering for that guy. Let me remind you he did this over there. There is a difference. So Floyd Mayweather was sentenced to jail for those allegations grows also went through the legal process. No criminal charges were filed and he went through a civil suit process, and he was found not to be liable. Now that is. Under appeal an appeal. That's being heard soon, but that should be mentioned if you are indeed going to bring up the other stuff, but Kobe Bryant went through something similar like that. And hell OJ Simpson wasn't guilty OJ Simpson, but he was found guilty in the civil side of civil suit. That's not completed yet with Derrick rose, look, I'm not I'm not sitting here telling you guys that I know what happened there. I continue to ask the question that I don't have the answer to which is when you read the details on that story there appalling. Okay. And I don't know whether it's true or not none of us know, but there is an amount of slut shaming going on in our audience. That is reprehensible, and I know that's not coming from women. I recognize it. And so as if as if whatever this woman is accused of she somehow deserved it. And it's the undercurrent and what is that? I'm talking about. When you get mad at me for just presenting the question have, hey, what am I supposed to do with this? And your answer is bleep off limits. Donlevatar? Of mcgary seven in war in nationals Expos history through God's how many Expos are ahead of him. Oh, easy. Gary Carter's, I him Raines rock Andre Dauphin off. Steve Rogers JR. AM wallet wall. And then Ryan Zimmerman and then ZIM VC's donlevatar show with his two guys on ESPN radio. ESPN radio is presented by progressive insurance.

Everyone's getting told no everyone. So I don't know if the WWE is going to be told. Yes, Oprah is being told. No, I didn't think anyone told Oprah.

Nice Story Monumental Day to see you my friend how are you. I'm Eric Solution. We We got a lot to get to. We now know why they call. It Wildcard old card weakened in the NFL. We got a little bit everything this weekend. We got upsets. We got over time. Perhaps the end of an era and that is where we will start this morning. The defending champion Mpm New England patriots hosting the Titans. On Saturday quick recap four year fourth. Quarter pats down one under three and a half to play Brady tries to connect with Julian Julian Edelman. But that's not an element thing to do. Drop in the ball like that New England would later pont still gets one last ditch effort for fifteen seconds left from their own one one and Tom Brady with the pick six that ends the game and perhaps ends Tom. Brady's career as a patriot. We shall see Titans win. They move on and patriots are done further season after the game. All the attention as you would imagine focused on the future of Tom. Brady grateful for or you know the experience of playing this year for this team this organization and And over the course of my career to so I appreciate it. I hope I've I've always tried to do the right thing out there You know who knows what the future holds so leave it at that. Do you have a sense of whether you'll be back with the Patriots and twenty twenty and do you want to be back with the Patriots and twenty twenty. I love the Patriots. They they obviously You know they got the greatest organization and you know playing for Mr Craft all these years for coach Belichick. And there's you know there's nobody who's had a better career. I would say the me just being with them so I'm very blessed what the future looks like so I'm not GonNa predicted so I wish we would have won tonight and we should done a lot. The things better over the course of the season but we just didn't get the job done. Is there any possibility that you would retire. After this season I I would say it's pretty unlikely but hopefully unlikely well. This is what everyone's talking about right now. Is the future of Tom Brady. Do you think Tom's played his last game with the New England Patriots. The only team he's played for in the NFL. I do think that Saturday was his last game with the Patriots. And if it was is it obviously was the end of the most successful improbable. An impressive run any player with any individual team in any sport art. You could argue as ever had what he he put together. Two separate hall of fame careers the first ten years and the second ten years it'll never rematched in eighteen years starter. Seventeen division titles. Thirteen buys thirteen. AFC Championship game appearances. Nine Super Bowl appearances six wins four swollen. VP's three league VP's. No one will ever do what he did with Dan team but he's not done playing football and the New England patriots. Aside from the owner of the team had not shown any inclination that they want him to continue playing football for them. They had plenty of opportunities to make. Tom Brady. Eighty the long term commitment that he wanted to this off season. They wouldn't the only thing they gave him. Robert Kraft talked about it with Peter King before the game about how it was important to Tom Brady that he get flexibility freedom after the season that that was something Tom wanted because he does not want to trust his future to a person and Bill Belichick who clearly does not any longer believe in him as a top flight high level superstar. NFL quarterback and so Jay. Jay Glazer reported this weekend Greg that he's not GonNa take any hometown discount. And why woody. He'd taken hometown discounts year after year. And I'm sure he feels with that money. You've squandered hundred with that money you have not put great pieces around me so I believe Tom Brady is going to keep playing football. I do not believe it will be with the New England patriots and if I had to pick a team same aim team pick two months ago when I said this day was coming. The Los Angeles chargers have weapons. They've been opening quarterback. He owns a home there to integrate city and they need to sell tickets. They're reportedly zero P. S. L. sold for their new stadium. So I believe Tom Brady. Is Los Angeles charger next year. And I believe believe Saturday. His grew with the Patriots came to a somewhat sad conclusion. I honestly I don't disagree with anything you've just said I think think those are all great points obviously his accomplishments supersedes. Would anyone will possibly ever do in this sport at at that position again having said that I do believe he will be back in a patriots uniform next year. I don't think this was the last time we'll see him in that uniform. And there's a lot of reasons I feel that way. The number one reason is when you've looked at we've seen over the course of NFL history quarterbacks that have made statements like this that have had an unbelievable careers. They've always had a successor plan. Joe Montana Steve Young Peyton manning Andrew Luck Brett farve Aaron Rodgers like. They're all has always been the air right in place for a while in New England had one for a while Gin and they let him go so when you look at their current roster and configuration. They don't have that and when you look at where they're they always have to pick in the draft. They they're you're not guaranteed to get that so with that being said Tom. Brady is their only option at quarterback now when I say option viable Ebel option as far as them having success and being able to sustain that success that bill belichick obviously wants to sustain. But I just don't see him going off outside of the relationship with Bella check somewhere else because he means so much organization and there is no plan in place to take the torch and run with an. I understand that and it is a huge difference between having Steve Young Andrew. Lock or Aaron Rodgers waiting in the wings and George Adam waiting in the wings but they knew that waiting in the wings when they refused to give a contract extension this offseason. They knew what the quarterback marketplace was looking like. They knew who was on the roster are they didn't have Jimmy Garoppolo six months ago. They traded a few years ago. And the difference between the Manning Farve in Montana. Exit is yes. They had great players waiting for them. Those players were also still great. Montana went to the chiefs may navy championship game. Farve winton the jets in the Vikings made the NFC championship game. peyton manning went to the broncos went to two super bowls. Why does that matter? Those guys would only have been forced out if you will because because they had a great player behind them because they were still high level players. Tom Brady and I'm not trying to dance on the man's football gray greatest player. I've ever seen Tom Brady. Is Not had a good quarterback anymore. We saw again this weekend. They the reason they are not playing any longer is because consecutive weeks. They lost to the fighting Ryan's Fitzpatrick and Tannehill at home. They win two weeks ago. They have a bye they win this week. They're on their way to Kansas City with a chance to do what they did last year. But once again that offense grind to a halt after some early success wants those fifteen scripted. Plays is our over. What did they do? Tom Brady was seven of twenty-one for what sixty two yards two receivers in this football game he I I know the pick six at at the end was unlucky. Fine he almost pick six at the end of the first half that could have essentially ended the game then the second play of the game was this close to being return over. Were the ball barely was going forward when he got hit on the second passing Game Brady has been very bad this year. So if you're bill belichick who who ultimately makes the football decisions for the Patriots. He was made trae Jimmy Garoppolo. I'm sure he's still feel some type of way about that. It's not necessarily. Do we have they great quarterback behind Tom. It might be. We don't have a great quarterback with or without Tom but one who's going to be about twenty five million dollars cheaper than the other other rather go with the cheaper option. But Greg what we're learning is in part of the interview that Peter King had with. Tom Brady afterwards is what he inferred. Was it maybe top Tom. Tom Brady doesn't think it was all on him that it was the people that surrounded him that that hometown discount that he took should have gone towards building a stronger team around him and Peter Kings in France was if he were to come. I'm back that I need people. Want demand other people around me and that could be. I don't know if you blame the last two weeks just on. Tom Brady or the lack of who Tom Brady had or will. You cannot blame the last two weeks on Tom Brady. This season owned solely Tom Brady now. He's going to bear the brunt of the low. Because that's that's his position -sition he's the quarterback and he's always been the focus but when you look at their personnel in the way they've been configured on offense nick they don't they just don't have the support and when you all. What you said is correct but when you have a quarterback who is in decline you gotTa have guys around him that can help elevate that that can help it literally? Take some pressure off of him. So making those catch is that you ordinarily wouldn't see guys make Mikio Hairy Hamas the new these guys you have to step up and make plays for a guy like Tom Brady or any quarterback who is falling off or not so far and if you need if if you need guys around him to elevate him which clearly at this point in his career and you do your New England patriots in Your Bill Belichick. Is that worth twenty five plus million dollars. 'cause Brady Eighty clearly in that sound bite. We heard it. He wants to be back. Robert Kraft in his interview with Peter. King that you were referencing Robert Kraft wants him back but bill belichick even and seeing the contract I guarantee in his contract. It says full control of football decisions. He got his hand forced once in trading way Jimmy Garoppolo. I would imagine that Bill Belichick is a very tough conversation with Robert Kraft very shortly. That says if you meddle in this. It's not just that you're picking Tom Tom. You are picking Tom over me. Bella check we talk about could brady be on the move elsewhere. I think so if he's not you have to wonder will. Would that make Bella check say I would like to be elsewhere beachwear. Total control is what I was promised and it would appear. I no longer have it beck here with Amani toomer. AFC Wildcard game. Texans hosting the bills on Saturday jumped over time to Shawn Watson somehow some way avoids the sack. Spins out of trouble finds Taiwan Jones who does the rest scampering for thirty four yards to the ten yard man to Sean. Just putting on this K- plane hero once again for the Texans Little Flex to show store. We're talking about here. And that would set tiny fairburn game. Winning Twenty Eight Yard Field Goal Texas win twenty two to nineteen to advance. They send Josh Allen. The bills home early Josh Allen. Very emotional after this lawsuit. So what does Shawn Watson emotional to if I try to lateral. Feel with twenty two years old. He's he's gotta learn man the quarterback across from him into Shawn Watson and how superb how impressed with what he did is not impressed. I mean I know what kind of player is is. I've been watching him ever since he was at Clemson but his mentality is really what impresses me the fact that no matter what happens in the beginning of the game he wasn't low. Oh I talk and then comes back in the fourth quarter and that mindset where he's just on that level and you can see he's ready to perform at his best and you can see his teammates realizing that and I play with quarterback Eli Manning who no matter what happens in the first couple of quarters if it comes down to the fourth quarter. We have a chance to win. He's a hundred percent on board. And that's what I think when I when I see Shawn Watson minutes is a guy that he's one of the best quarterbacks. I've seen in in a long time young quarterbacks and I'm excited to watch him play and the only reason why I wanted the Houston Texans win. This game is because I wanted to see him play again next week. flighted judge quarterback WANNA see him play. Would I pay to see him. Play absolutely for me listening to you and then watching the sound Watson when I go all the way back to win that will sweeney said this is Michael. This is the closest thing to Michael Jordan. And I've ever seen in when you watch the the Shawn Watson play. Now he's not Michael Jordan but his mentality which is what you're mentioning is like. He never never falters. He never wavers. He's one of those guys that he can be down but he's such a playmaker and he's such a player and he's so mobile any so accurate it outside the pocket he can make you pay. It brings me to this point the NFL has moved on from that pocket pocket. Passing that pocket passing quarterback standing his is getting left in the in the Wayne's in his this John is because guys like Shawn Watson Lamar Jackson Patrick Mahomes Russell Wilson. Shoot Josh Allen. These these guys can extend the place but they can still make make plays down the field to Shawn Watson can do it with the best of him. He had an electric game. And and again you said this earlier. He needed this. He needed this based on what they experienced last year. And even when you look at his rules against Patrick Mahomes and against since Lamar Jackson he needed to win a big game against a really good team sack seven times slow for staff and was able to do what he did despite his head coach Exac- yeah he's spectacular. He is he should have been covered on the second. Should have been the number. One pick of the draft sir came out and he was not even discussed normal bic now in revisionist history will save patrimony. The number one pick nobody. I Patrick Mahomes is one of my favorite reports every place where my favorite team when the chiefs traded up in that draft. I thought they were trading up for this Sean. I was devastated when they did. And I was like this guy from Texas. So like Cernan into this to Shawn's always been and the fact that he was the third quarterback taken the fact that he was not even discussed within our overall pick it's lunacy and he's proven it every single week week of his career he when he first came into the NFL coming in to halftime of week. One because bill. O'Brien WANNA start a rookie. said he started Tom Savage. Yeah and then he immediately. We like goes on a record-breaking strata then he blows out his knee in practice last year with the worst offense wine football carries them to the postseason but then Anna postseason. When the coaching matters more they get passed by Frank Reich in the Indianapolis Colts then this year? I was looked like saying damn thing's going to happen again because Sean McDermott and the bills really had two weeks to prepare for this game. They didn't have a by but they were locked into the five seed two weeks ago. The Texans were essentially locked into the foresee two weeks ago so they knew what was coming and for the first two and a half quarters. It looked like it looked like bill. O'Brien's mental lab for two weeks. Doing whatever the hell he does Sean McDermott lab for two weeks and the bills are going to run away with this game. And it's going to be indictment on this kit. And instead he runs for talks down on a brilliant play gets a two point conversion with does legs on a brilliant play in the fourth quarter and overtime. He's ten for eleven for the one thousand nine passer rating and the single best play. I bet we'll see the whole postseason you senator senator earlier. This is impossible and he's had a number of plays like this in his career already. Texans fans will lament them where he's been called in the grasp we're he has spun out of it but the play's been whistled dead if he goes down. I think they lose. It's now and forever. They're probably punting and the bills are going to get the ball. All back to guys will the Texans. Victory Jj Watt the best player in the history of the franchise and to Shawn Watson the best quarterback in the history of the franchise interest and the players deserved to overcome their coaching. And they did it and I the the I I used to live down there so I have a lot of friends. That are Texans fans. I'm happy for them. Because they deserved this victory based on the brilliance of that young man and Jj Watt alone. Talk so much about intangibles when it comes to the football player. Jj What does Shawn Watson. Jj Watt before the game coming out and saying I may not be one hundred percent. I'm giving you a hundred percent of everything in my DNA for this game and we heard after the game that Shawn Watson at halftime halftime said enough is enough. I'M GONNA take this game on. I'm going to stand up. I'M GONNA stay up and I'M GONNA help us will this game. How important is it to guys like that are able to be on a team again? And despite whatever mistakes head coaches making despite everything he did in the first-half absolutely because momentum is contagious. Right and you want your best players in when the Times get tough in games which inevitably inevitably due to step up and say. Hey look follow me. I'm going to be there. I'm GonNa take all the responsibility. It's not going to be because of me. I'm not scared tired of the situation. And that's what you need in a leader and that's why he's been successful everywhere he's been because of that attitude and I could see how Dabo swinney when you call them the The Michael Jordan because of the mentality and how he wills his team to win play against Alabama in the national championship two times in a row just dominating dominate and the best time it was it was incredible and the spark that lit the fire for the comeback was JJ ZAC JJ. Looked like. He was really just. They're almost almost vernon inspirational. Lift early on. Didn't look like his play and then in the second half. He came on strong for a great moment for him. In a great moment for this firdous Shawn the moment the game clearly not too big for him so time now for a great on it sponsored by COMREX. We'll stick with to Sean. Who did it all in the win? The Texans quarterback finished twentieth twenty-five two hundred forty thirty seven yards a touchdown to go along with fifty five yards on the ground and another score. So Nick Start with you. Put Great Shaun's performance plus Vinnie of these guys disagree with me. I'm walking off the set. I don't care them. Slow start six down sixteen. Nothing came came back and it was because of his brilliant I give him an a plus. I'll well I'll give an a minus because of the fact that he didn't start office as quickly back the fact that the fact that he came through at the end you can't not you can't discredit the fact that he started a slow start. I'm going to give him a beaten. I'm going to give them A. I'm definitely giving them a with his ability to overcome. What is in in front of him with his own offensive line? And what's coming at him and what he was able to do. Six Down Sixteen and then the play of what I would potentially could be of the play offs special player Magic. It's long long day at work.

Tom Brady and the pats were eliminated from the playoffs on Saturday after the Game Brady said retirement is unlikely but he doesn't know what the future holds. Nick Nick. Are you in or are you out. Tom Brady returning to the NFL the NFL. He's playing. Tom Brady has been very interesting once to lose forty five five. I don't know if he gets forty five but he's going to get to forty three. He plays next season. I just don't believe it's in this uniform. I'm in and I do believe it's going to be in this uniform. I don't know no win. They'll settle it but that's not up to me. I will find out like everybody else. He's not retired no chance I don't know I think I'm with you. You think he plays with the Patriots again. Eagles fell to the seahawks. Seventeen to nine yesterday in large part because Carson Wentz was knocked out of the game in the first quarter with a head injury very greg. Are you in a row out on Philly winning yesterday. If Wentz doesn't get hurt I'm in I'm in anytime you go into a postseason game. Your game plan is strategically. TJ guys that you have going into that game and then you have to make adjustments McConnell came in and he did play good he just didn't he wasn't went and I think that if they had had winds they could be they could have won that out because a mccown and make any critical mistakes. I understand. They weren't able to finish drives five times inside the thirty yard line. They come away with three field. Goals and no touchdowns did philly and the game is different if one's plays but they were totally unable to stop. Russell Wilson when the Seahawks begrudgingly. Put the game on Russell's right arm and I think they would have done that more often it philly was able to muster more points so I think one way or another Seattle was going to win a close game. They ended up winning it this way as we even with Carson Wentz not being hurt. I don't believe they would have won so I'm out moving on the Dallas cowboys have officially moved on from Jason Garrett. The ten years I his ten years at the helm only resulted in two playoff wins. Greg you interrupt on Jason Garrett Getting Another head coaching job in the NFL out you know. He was an interim from head coach in two thousand ten. And then he get he just fell into this opportunity because Jerry Jones identified him as someone that he could just pretty much. It's puppet and do whatever he wanted him to do. He hasn't been successful. Only three winning seasons. I'm out on Jason Jason Gears longtime head coach of the cowboys right. Yes he's also white. Those guys get other jobs white. NFL head coaches that get fired. After as long as it's not told faster they become head coaches again. I'm in Adam Gates. Didn't add. Wait five minutes. He got no job Pat Shurmur on his second team therapy kitchen known as well guys that are one and done. Rub trubisky type spreading Freddie Kitchens. Those guys don't Jason Garrett will be head coach in this league again. He's the exact type of person that gets at least two bites of the apple and not only cerebral coach. I think he's a great coach coach. But if you have a rebuilding team he's going. I think he can get you to respect. Really got to see what he could do if he was given all full autonomy. Join a blank. Tom Brady and the Patriots were eliminated from the playoffs on Saturday after the a game. Brace said retirement is unlikely. But he doesn't know what the future holds Greg. Brady's team next season will be playing Let me think think about this. It will be the New England Patriots and I know you don't like that but it is what it is they don't have a successor plan lined up like you would have if seen with Montana in young in Farve and Rodgers and the list goes on when you don't have that Lee walking away and letting a guy like Tom Brady. Walk out the door and you don't have somebody to step in and fill in. Those shoes is just not a great plan. You say I don't like that I I would. Yeah I would love for you to keep it going guys run it back. This year was an aberration. They they played can't sitting and next thing their head kicked again but he's not going to be on the Patriots exer- The chargers make too much sense. He owns a home there. They need a quarterback. They need some juice moving into that new stadium where no one in in La seems care about the chargers. They have elite skill position guys in Mike Williams and Keenan Allen. Hunter Henry Austin They don't bring Melvin Gordon back and all those and I believe that is the only city Tom. Brady's wife is one of them retire for five years. I do not think he can go to his wife and say honey now. Nobody not retiring but get ready. We're moving to indy. I think he can say we're moving to la where we actually already live in the off season. The chargers make too much sense for a million reasons. That's where he plays next moving on Kirk cousins in the Viking. Surprise The saints yesterday New Orleans one of four teams. That were sent home early this weekend. So Nick let's spin it. Forward the losing team most poised to make it back to the playoffs. Next season is blank philly Washington and the giants are not viable competition. The Division we'll see what Dallas does that go spot they will. They have to be healthier than they were. Last year they have the easiest path via the division. I think things are actually pointing up in Philly. They should be encouraged by all. The season ended prior to how the regular season ended. So I say the Philadelphia Eagles. I'll say the buffalo bills we talk about the easiest path I mean obviously there in. AFC They have New England patriots features. That have always been there. They have a really good team. Sean McDermott has done a great job with this organization like where they're headed I onto rookie decay metcalf. He hauled in seven catches for a rookie playoff record. One hundred sixty yards and a touchdown in the seahawks. Lynn Greg. We'll let oh you decide the most impressive performance from wild card weekend. Was You know in a losing effort. I gotta go a taste him. He'll I liked his energy. I liked his mentality. Talapity his approach to the game. He scored a catching a ball. He threw a ball. He I mean he rushed fifty five yards like e. You Gods like that you have to have on your team. If it were not for tasting hill the New Orleans saints wouldn't even admit in this game absolutely right. Jason emeals sensational. I coulda gone with Russell Wilson. Because when he was given the opportunity was great. Derrick Henry is maybe should have gone with he was exceptional. But I want to give it to Sean. I think you overcame coaching. You overcame a sixteen point deficit. He had the single best play of the playoffs. Right here turns upon into essentially really. Oh the game. Winning field goal so Shawn Watson that play. Plus the poison. The comeback rushing for a touchdown. He beets tastes them who who was outstanding Derrick Henry Russell Wilson.

Hour 1: Winning Halloween and Losing TNF

"Welcome to Spain. And fits the podcast it Spain fit sunny SPN radio the espionage and Sirius XM channel eighty Sarah Spain and Jason Fitz with you on ESPN radio. It is the day after Halloween and fit strolled in to the Nashville studio like a zombie having terrorized never hood, and he's sent to make a grand proclamation about next year's Halloween. But we'll do that a little later in the show. We'll save the good stuff. Why the cops were called to his house? Why are show one Halloween? Why our producer Vince is already halfway through a bowl of candy. We'll tell you all about I'm halfway through a bowl of candy. Let's be honest. I may or may not have taken some leftover candy from one of my neighbors and docking. I'm you know, it's the little bites and I just brought a bowl down that's going to be my dinner tonight. That's you know, my body is seventy five percent candy. But I've got I've got a coke zero in a bowl of candy. That's going to be my food is I get through this evening. Not at all surprising. Radio presented by progressive insurance. We'll get to the Halloween stuff later, but something that field Yates, and I talked about last night and then fits and I talked about the night before this ongoing story coming out of the university of Maryland. And of course, you want a place to get it. Right. No matter how long it takes. But there are still so many questions about why it took Wallace low going rogue against the board of regents at Maryland to eventually make the right decision to let go of DJ Durkan in this morning on the Dan lebatardshow is Stu gods. Dan, talked about how whether or not you wanna pin all the blame to DJ Dirk. He still has to go. Even if the person was innocent attended fifteen one hundred percent innocent you have to fire him anyway, because he's job is to get recruits. And it's been torched. Right. Like, you can't have a dead player on your hands. A toxic culture that has been investigated and get anyone's parents to lend you their kids and there. Bodies, like even if he were a same tomorrow. The job. He can the job is to get recruits. Like, you could say the job is to win. But the job is to get the crudes. He can't do it as well. Get out of here. Like, you gotta go, dude. Even if you're innocent. I'm sorry that stinks. I know we want to do all the, you know. Innocent until proven guilty, and nobody cares about unfair here. Can't because what's fair about a situation that ended with a kid dying. Right. We're going to start being fair. Now as we try to decide whether or not he did enough to be swept along with the wave that takes this program. And we did in the investigation find that this man who claimed he was as close as one can be to their strength coach the guy who's already out for his very clear role in what happened that he was as close as he claim to be and that they did walk in lockstep. And that was one thing by the way. Sarah. I was listening to Golic and wingo couple of days ago. And I want to get Michalak senior some credit for really laying down some some education on the relationship between the strength and conditioning coach and the head coach, the maybe I was a little aware of and the basic concept of a strength and conditioning coaches around the players every day, even when the coaches by AA rule can't be the strength conditioning. Coach really is that person that could be the voice of coaching staff. And that's part of why golick has been so adamant, it made sense when I heard it and so much of to what to what you just mentioned them with Dan talked about about whether or not somebody is guilty or not that conversation by lies a lot of college. Football minds will come in and say, well, you know, there are things like this going on it every program to that. I would say there shouldn't be but be every marriage might have an argument to. But when you see the neighbors down the street out in the street, arguing you see that marriage differently afterwards. That's just the way it goes. Once you see what has happened here. And once this investigation is complete. There is no way to walk it back. And that's why I think it was shocking. The border reasons got it so wrong. But it's also equally shocking in a credit way to me that they still come out Wallace low comes out and says, I know we're not going to let this happen. I mean, it's rare that we see anybody in college football. And my mindset stand up and do the easy right thing and that to give Wallace low credit might have been late. But that's alternately. What happened it Spain in Sarah Spain and Jason Fitz, and you know. Just to go Joe. So said this morning on on golick and wingo. If this were the case of a terrible tragedy of a player dying, and it was one person's fault, or there was no culture there. Then we would see a team rally together around a defense of the program, and their coaches and that something had gone horribly wrong. And that's not what we're seeing. Right. Because there's a report out now that one of the players on the team was one of the guys who spoke to the investigators and did believe that there was a toxic culture there. He says he was assaulted at practice after DJ Durkan was reinstated. Suffering a black. I dislocated shoulder and needing multiple stitches on his face. Meantime, there are two players on the team saying that what that player said was false linebacker. Trae Watson tweeted, this piece of fabrication is an absolute joke and mockery of our team. Not gonna affect as moving forward in any way and defensive tackle kid is lying out of his mouth this altercation. Had nothing to do with the coach durken's situation. And had everything to do with him picking on a younger player. There were many witnesses. Wade has the total supportive everyone here. Wade being the guy that was alleged to have fought. So if it doesn't toxic situation the fact that there are sides within the team throughout the investigation during the reinstatement after the firing just points to the fact that this situations a mess. Exactly. And it is it personifies everything about what toxic culture is because even with the coaching staff. Not there even with the head coach and DJ Durkin not there. This is still going on there. Still some sort of a divide there. Still an issue that has been burrowed so deep into the fabric of how this program is conditioned that it can't be taken away just by taking one person away. If you've created that sort of a world where you can suspend a coach, and these issues still go it tells you how deep it's permeated in to the culture of Maryland football. And it's why this was an easy decision to simply cut ties stand up and say we as the university of Maryland are going to the right? Thing. And that's why I was stunned the border regions didn't get it. Right. From the first from the get-go and why I'm stunned? It's taken this long. Well, I'm not stunned in. Here's why because we have seen a complete loss of perspective when it comes to what collegiate athletics is supposed to be about regardless of the money that's involved that it's still an enterprise that's supposed to involve an investment in who these young men are and whether they get an education, and whether they learn how to be good people and that may sound naive. But the fact that at this point we've completely lost any connection to the idea that you're sending young men off to be led by a group of adults. And that you expect at the very least their safety at the very least not the dehumanisation of them by throwing buckets vomit on them or throwing weights at them or calling them homophobic slurs. The fact that we've lost that perspective is why it doesn't surprise me as we go from institution to institution and watching the adults make terrible decisions. Sally jenkins. Washington Post columnist was on golick and wingo this morning and talked about how the board of regents decision is just reflective of a larger issue in sports. You know, you guys have seen how perfectly intelligent wealthy powerful men. Become panting thrown sniffers when it comes to college football. It is not a rational exercise for them. They lose common sense. That's the problem. When when these when wealthy donors and wealthy regions into us, tease crave. A championship or crave, you know, athletic success at the top level. They accept all kinds of ridiculousness, and they they acted ridiculous immature. Boyish disorganized, chaotic incoherent ways. And fitz. I mean to me, you know, we've now seen that the chair of the board of regents James t Brady has stepped down. And this is about more than just making the commonsense. Or even humane choice. It's also about politics. It's about Kevin plank, the head of of Under Armour who's given twenty five million dollars to the school. We don't know where he stands on this. He hasn't gone public with it. But maybe they're concerned about the decision. They make means is his checkbook closes up. And that's why doesn't any longer come down to what's right? Yeah. Well, at some point every college football program has come to Jesus moment where they have to figure out who they're going to be moving forward. What will continue to alarm me by the board of regents, which you know, had the opportunity to to to really clean this up quickly. What continues to alarm me is that they aligned on the wrong side of what is obviously an easy line between right and wrong. And this was such an easy easy line in the sand to take and to do the right thing. And then. Made it difficult, and that's something that even even no matter how right they tried to make it at this point. It's going to be hard to look at the border regions with the university of Maryland, the men and women on that board and understand their process. And why they thought they were doing the right thing for the for the state for the state school for college park for everybody on that campus. It's an embarrassment.

More progressive commercial dot com. Coming up we've got raiders Niners tonight on Thursday night football moose Zuber fan. Like fits watched the entire garbage game. We'll find out next pain in pits on ESPN radio. Spain and Fitz. Yes. In the long time honored tradition of Thursday night football being trashed we'd actually seen some good ones. But let's just stick with the narrative that Thursday night football is often trash so that we can stay tonight's raiders Niners games fits right in Spain and Fitz on ESPN radio the s. ESPN app and Sirius XM channel eighty Sarah Spain and Jason Fitz with you. And yes, the final battle of the bay before the raiders moved to Vegas in two thousand twenty and unfortunately, not much of a battle to be won whoever wins this won't be able to claim anything other than not the worst of the worst too. Hot to wins and thirteen losses between these two teams and the forty Niners or sending out their third string quarterback. No, jan. No Jimmy Garoppolo. No won't be CJ Beathard. It will be Nick Mullins, an undrafted free agent out of southern miss who's never appeared in a regular season game, man, you know, what Syria really making feel like there's no way around winning this one. And it's it's fortunate for later and find a way. I mean, just going to wait for them to come out. And be like, you know, what we really feel like we want to see what Arthur d- string quarterback situation looks like just in case next year. We wanna revisit the backup situation. We wanna make sure we've got the right guys. I like I can't find a way for them to you know, should be noted going into as much as we joked about tanking when they went into Sunday's game last week three of their their veterans starters on defense. We're just healthy scratches, and they played guys on on the defensive side of the ball that got more snaps at one game than they had all season. So they're curious attempt at snap counts in Oakland has been it's been interesting. I just don't see any way around this. This is going to be a trash trash football game about third injured. His wrist in the second quarter against the cardinals last week. That's why he's unavailable is active though, and could be the backup. If anything makes necessary for him to go in. But it's Nick Mullins time. I've never taken a snap in a regular season. Game was on the practice squad for the Niners most of last year, and they. Just released Tom savage, who I'm not really sure why they signed bed, Tom savage. If you're like, hey got released because they're going to sign they're going to start a practice squad. I mean, he does right here. He goes back to his his whatever seventy two million dollar contract house. I mean, it it's all good to be. Well, he didn't get that much. But Tom savage has been paid a couple of times in this league. And it's sort of amazing how bad you have to be to become for a practice squad. I guess the question for you fits as somebody who is inexplicably still loyal to the black and silver still fan enough to watch as your team appears to be tanking and dismantling for future participation in contention. We'll you watch this whole game start to finish every single second of already got all the TV's in the house on ready for it. I've timed out that you know, I got a diabetic dog. I to make sure she gets her shot. I've timed it out. So that won't interfere with the game. I'm going to hear the snap situation. Candy and the energy drink. It's going to be Bola candy. I think the coke zero is going to get something added to it. That's probably more intended for for adults over the age twenty one. And then I think I'm going to go with some not chose tonight. So could it be a full on unhealthy? That you know, I don't want to brag or anything. But I'm going to watch all of look I think for me it comes down to what raiders games have meant throughout my life. And I always flippantly say it. But I mean that I do what I do because of my love of football growing up in my love of the Oakland Raiders LA raiders as a kid growing up. And and so for me game day just has a meaning as a sense as an experience, and yeah, it's more fun when you win. But there's still sort of a piece of it. It's what I do. I I can't imagine. I'm in Nashville tonight. I could go out and see some friends. I haven't seen it forever. I could go up social I could go to lower Broadway. See some of the best musicians in the world. Instead, I'm going to watch some of the worst football in the world from the comfort of my couch. That's what I'm gonna do. I'm just fits his weird distant, I guess, it's not witnessed weirdness. It's fandom. Visit. We all have teams that are terrible. We watch them. Anyway. My husband went to a bull's game the other night, and he was hoping for them to lose because he wants them to go and eighty two and really complete the full tank if they're going to do it just go strong. But we'll still watch our teams when they stink. The question is what is the worst game? You've ever watched the whole way through and that's not you can't give me some my team with closed than they lost it on a final field goal. That's not a bad game. That's a bad loss. I'm talking bad game, you areas to tell your friends you like, hey, guys. Sorry. What did you do that last week xactly? Tell us on the one eight hundred flowers dot com Twitter feed at sarahspain at Jason Fitz at Spain and fits what is the worst game. You've ever sat all the way through spies a friend or loved one today, perhaps one who's going to watch tonight Thursday night football game with a bouquet from one eight hundred flowers dot com. When you order a dozen multicolored roses for only twenty nine ninety nine you'll get another dozen plus. Vase absolutely free. Just go to one eight hundred flowers dot com slash ESPN. I mentioned the last battle of the bay before Oakland moves a little bit of sentimentality here. If you're into that sort of thing, I'm curious what you think what the lake what the raiders are doing right now is saying to Oakland fans about their fandom about their respect for the city about what it means to be from Oakland since it feels like everything they're doing is just about being good when they get to Vegas. God. I mean, I I don't know anon- harsh way to say, and it just feels like the team is given the city of Oakland, a massive up yours. I mean, there's a point here when you think about the past and the fact that they were the Oakland Raiders that became the LA raiders that became the Oakland Raiders. Because of that there's a lot of people like me that are fans of the raiders wherever they play. I don't care if they play in Vegas or San Antonio or London. I'm still going to be a raiders fan. It's just I didn't it wasn't about the city, but for the city of Oakland and the people in Oakland, it's all about raiders and. The Oakland city, and the brand would that means to the actual community in the environment the vibe and and having been to a few games out in Oakland. And there's a unique special bond between that team and those fans, and they're the ones that are absolutely being left behind in this hearing that from them. Yes. Absolutely. Don't get a lot of national coverage of what's going on there. But I didn't even know until you told me that the city of Oakland or represent a private Representative who is being supported by the city. The city is not doing it self is suing for the logo in the colors and everything else because they don't want it to go away with the people who don't seem to be respecting the families, and the fan base themselves feels betrayed and heartbroken. And a lot of those people have had a they've had season tickets forever. And you think about it? They lived through the jamarcus Russell years and still sold. Well, when they went through two and fourteen and still sold. Well, and it's one of those rare fan bases that you know, as much as raiders fans, get some bad bad reputation. At times because how how they dress in. How it seems when you actually go to the games the the connection between those fans and those season ticket holders is pretty palpable. And it's it's kind of amazing to watch. They all feel left behind in district disrespected and uncared for in the process. And I think the difference is San Diego they pick up and they moved to LA overnight. This is like, you know, filing for divorce, and then let me in the same house for two years and saying, hey, well, it may not find something else until I moved in with my new wife. So we're just gonna keep staying here. It just gets more and more hurtful for the city of Oakland. I genuinely feel bad. It's one thing when it was like, you know, what we're coming off at twelve and four season we're going to relocate, but we're going to try and win a Super Bowl before we leave Oakland for the city of Oakland. You could you could maybe try and term it that way you can't anymore. Now. They're just basically saying, hey, y'all already bought the tickets or suckers, so fine. And it is heartbreaking for Oakland. I can't even believe I haven't asked you this before. But quickly when you go to raiders games in Oakland. Are you painted face spiky? Older pads helmet with a skeleton on a guy I've done that to other cities. I'd never done that in Oakland. I've done it when I've gone to other cities, but when I've gone to raiders games, I've usually humble brag been there either to play the anthem or as a guest of the team. So I never feel like that's appropriate. I usually wear my g I wear my custom fit stirs e that they made for. Jersey there. All right me, they made it for me when they give it to you with your number on it with with your name on the back of it you when the team presented to you wear that does the number say like like, see major. No, no. But the first time the anthem was Charles Woodson appreciation day. So I have Woodson's number on it. But it's okay. I know photo view with the weird face. That's really what I'm looking for here about you're not you're boozy stories coming up Spain and Fitz WNBA players opted out of their CBA. They want to negotiate a new deal with the league. What are they fighting over? Let's find out from hall of Famer Rebecca Lobo next on Spain and Fitz on ESPN radio. Spain and Fitz as boy govern loved playing football. He lived and breathed it wanted to go when he'd spent hours upon hours just his touchdown dances at one day. Well, getting for bifocals he realized he was never much good at throwing or running or country nor even kicking. Yeah. Gavin's chances of playing football. We're looking like fourth and long. Very long, but he did hear how could save money on car insurance. So he switched and save. Then he did kind of a touchdown. That's at least he was still good at that. Welcome back to Spain and fit sunny SPN radio the espionage type in Sirius XM channel eighty Spain. And Jason Fitz with you ESPN radio's presented by progressive insurance. Let's out to the shell Pennzoil performance line where ESPN basketball analyst and hall of Famer Rebecca Lobo joins us. Thanks for making time for us. Rebecca today. It was announced that not surprisingly WNBA players association has opted out of its current CBA doesn't expire until after the twenty nineteen season. But they only had until today to exercise this option. So they make this move. And they try to get a new CBA going for the after next season. What are the what would you say the biggest sticking point where that was the that was the reason they decided to opt out? You know, I'm not exactly sure I do know that you know, I think it was a good decision by the players. There are things that they need to address especially coming off this season because of the world championships being in October this year, the WNBA players had played the same amount of games in SRI last week. It was a really cool goaling schedule for them this year, a lot of games in a shorter amount of time on they had some travel issues that they want to address with the league, you know, of course, players always want to do what they can to increase the their salaries. Eight of you heard neck okwu McKay talking on outside the lines today. You know, we just want to enhance the overall player experience. So hopefully, the league and the players can work together they've done that well in the past, and you know, improve things for the players while at the same time understanding economic realities of the league. So Rebecca you mentioned that there's been a good relationship in the past. But the financial side of it has sort of gone from a rumble to a roar over the last. Do you think it's reasonable to expect the players and owners can come to a financial agreement fairly easily? If the players in order to both reasonable. Yeah. I think so and I and I hope so, you know, you have some really smart women who not only in the WNBA, but in particular represent the players on the executive committee, and you know, they've cost about wanting to see the financials. Mark Tatum was on again outside the lines today. Talking about the fact that the league lost twelve million dollars last year and it over the past twenty two years NBA has put a huge investment into the league. You know, I'm hopeful that the players will be reasonable with their expectations of what the league can do. You know, I it's. It's not the league is not in a place. Obviously, at least obviously to most of us for the women to think that they are going to be able to get salaries that are close to what the NBA players are getting. It's just not the economic reality of it. I'm hoping the women understand. I heard a player say something yesterday about being any quality issue. It is absolutely not an equality issue. This is not. In colleges. This is a business issue. And I hope the players understand those realities, but you know, again, I think that gives a very smart and fought for women who who, you know, really had the union, and are the, you know, at the front of the union into hopefully, they will be able to come to an agreement that is fair for for the players, and and you know, helps ensure longevity this like talking to you has been basketball analysts and all of him, Rebecca Lobo. You can follow her on Twitter at Rebecca Lobo Mirren. Fainter of Bleacher report wrote a great story about the WNBA and in it neck Oga McKay talked to her about what they want. And I think part of the issue is this idea of you're fighting for money that doesn't exist which is a reality. If you look at as you said the WNBA ending up at a deficit and not not not making money. But but what she said is what we're discussing and fighting for is a lot more intricate intricate than simply pay for us paying us more. It's a lot deeper than that. It's. Structural. Why is it so hard for people to understand it's kind of business one on one? You're not gonna make money off a product that. You don't invest in the w is the product and the investment, isn't there? I think that's the crux of it. Right. Because like you said, Rebecca, we can all be realistic about whether it's making a lot of money. But the question is whether you believe it could be if there was more of an investment, and what do you make of that? Because there is sort of this back and forth of welded. NBA's the only league that has the equivalent of a w are we asking too much? You know, I think it's it's that's what the players are supposed to do. That's what the union reps are supposed to do is pass for more and hope that they can get that for the players. You know, I I don't think it's fair to say that the NBA has not put in a significant investment over the course of the history of the WNBA if you look at the last twenty two years, you know, when when the players asked, the financials, I hope the league is it to them for the last twenty two years and to see how much of an investment the NBA has made. And what I believe would essentially be how much money the NBA has lost. Now. I think it's fair for the players to want. You know, different things you know, can the league afford to charter flights to every game. No, no, they can't. Because the players ask for those times when they play back to back games that maybe their team to get a charter. I personally think that that would be a fair request. But the players to ask where the first couple of the playoffs which don't because it's single women. You don't know where you're. Going until the day before you're supposed to get there. Could the players fairly ask that in those situations? Maybe they get charters because they fairly asked that they a few more players get to fly first class, especially when you have someone to believe who are extraordinarily hall. I think that the players should ask for certain things, and and hope to get certain things. But I think you're kind of having faulty reasoning if you're going to say that the league has not invested a lot, especially when you look at the last twenty two years, and you know, you've seen teams fold we've seen we've seen franchises. At Minnesota's a perfect example struggle early on when when they're not winning games, nobody in the stands, and then you know, they get good. And now, they're probably one of the profitable franchises have some of the biggest one of the biggest fan bases in the league. So you know, again, the players want to see the financials. I hope the league is completely transparent and shows that everything because I think if those numbers are out there, they can come to a to a fair agreement on you know, if you truly understand the investments that the league has put in so far we're talking to ESPN basketball analyst and hall of Famer Rebecca Lobo on the shell Pennzoil performance line. Rebecca anytime most fans here collective bargaining situation. Feels contentious to a lot of fans that's just what we expect right and the NFL conversation. They talk so much about the lack of solidarity between union members and the ability to stand together and actually hold out to negotiate. Can you give us a sense of what the solidarity between WNBA players is like in a situation like this? I honestly can't because now that I am. You know, I'm no longer a player as a league. I don't know what those conversations are like, I do know that there was, you know, throughout the course of this past season. There was a lot of talk. Amongst players were different situations happen, like when when Vegas had a horrible travel scenario where they landed in Washington DC a few hours before they were supposed to play and and decided not to play. I know the players that I talked to after that whether they were onto Vegas team or other teams, they they were showing definite solidarity and backing you know, the the other living in the league. So I would assume that that's the case when it comes to these negotiations, but I I can't speak to that. Sarah Spain and Jason Fitz. Spain and Fitz on ESPN radio talking to Rebecca Lobo about the WNBA players opting out of their currency bay before we let you go. It seems to me like you're of the opinion that there is a fairly fair agreement right now. And that perhaps it's just a matter of things are not the way we wish they were. And if they were there be more revenue, and they'd get paid more, and they'd be valued more be respected. But that because things aren't like that you're sort of siding with the WNBA on this is that fair. You know, I'm not siding with either, you know, 'cause I don't have the information that that the players are talking about, you know, I'm not privy to the elite financials. I just know, you know, the things that I hear Martinez say, and as a form of player I want the players to to get everything that they can get. And I don't know what their demands on. You know, as I mentioned earlier, you know, there were situations that happen if you're like the players absolutely should make sure that they do not have another schedule like they had this past year. There were too many games in a short amount of time. And and it had to be ridiculous ridiculously hard on the players bodies. They need to make sure that that doesn't happen again. And you know, they need to try try to find ways to get better travel. I don't know how much money is out there for the salaries to approve if it is there. I hope they get it. You know because this is this is a great league. And I want the most for the players, and I just hope that the expectation is realistic and most importantly. That you know that there's never a stoppage of play that there's not a lockout or a strike or anything like that. Because I think this week is still even those twenty two years. And I think it's still fragile enough that that could could be irreparable. But no, I I'm not siding with either with either side other than to say, I hope that they have really good Frank discussions and can come up with something that benefits the players, you know, in a way that also can help this leak continue go. Awesome stuff. Thanks so much for making time. I really appreciate it. My pleasure, sir. Thank you gonna follow her at Rebecca Lobo on Twitter. Coming up on Spain and Fitz. Why were the cops called the Fitz's Halloween extravaganza last night? We'll find out next Spain and Fitz on ESPN radio. Spain and Fitz. Welcome back to Spain and fit sunny SPN radio the SPN app and Sirius XM channel eighty Sarah Spain and Jason Fitz with you. ESPN radio is presented by progressive insurance. We're back together again after fits took the night off to terrorize neighborhood. I was thinking he was having a big Halloween party. And then I remembered the big Halloween party came a week or so ago this night is dedicated solely to taking all of the beautiful Halloween decorations that his neighbors have looked at for about a month. Now walked past all the mannequins. And a variety of scary situations, replacing them all with his flesh and blood friends. And then seeing how many friends get kicked in the head when they jump out at trick or treaters. So I need a head kicking tally. So what are we seeing surprisingly no head? Pickings like, it is amazing. How I learned that a couple of my friends have a really creepy. Skill of standing perfectly still it's really alarming to me. I can't you know, I'm like fidgety the whole time, but it just sugar and the Catherine ably and energy drinks move, all of it the heroin natural. It's my boundless energy is is really what it is. But I it wasn't alarming moment when the police came, and they didn't I think somebody in fairness probably call the cops because they thought they were having we were having a massive party. But no, it was just because there were so many kids that were coming through the lawn and like we put the candy sort of towards the back and he had to walk through all of the candy. And so the number of parents and kids I mean, we had hundreds of trick or treaters last night, and we had stopped the street to the point that the cops were having to come just to make sure they could direct traffic in an off of the street to make sure nobody was getting hurt because there were that many people hanging out. So it was we had over one hundred eighty two the cops or what did they say to you break it break it up. No, no. You know, the funny thing is they just they were like, this is amazing. And then there were no because we were all masks at that point, the they sort of realized we were just hanging out with community. So it was just like when the cops came to Julie Foudy house. And then they were like, hey, look, it's Julie Foudy same steel, it's famous. We were none of us. But, but it was a it was funny because especially when they're really little ones like the little little kids that would start crying or whatever I wanna make sure it's a positive experience. So I had a Michael Meyer stance. I could do to cheer him up. And then I'd take the mask off. And like, I'd take a little hand or whatever. Like, walk them through and make sure they're okay. Because you know, my core. I'm actually a really nice guy. And so none of otherwise the other day, your jerk your guy, I just thought on an airplane. But there were several we were asked for a lot of pictures over the course of the night when people go through, and there was an instance where probably this little five or six year old girl as we were about to take the picture of moral holding our fake knives stabbing everybody she's came up, and like grab my bear hugged, my leg, and she was just sitting there. And everyone's like, oh my God. It's so cute. So see I was making Halloween a positive experience. But then we were also chasing people down the street later in the evening. So I hope the no no, no like the teeny boppers at all want to act like other coolest kids in the world through like. Oh, no. I'm not scared at all. No, let's get it all and then when the guy. My buddy that plays Jason voorhees fast. And so he would just start running. And then we'd all take off like we had a leather face from Texas chainsaw Myers. I don't care if someone's got a mask on if they're chasing me. I'm running away doesn't matter. Whether it's all a win or just regular night. The someone's chasing me down the street. I'm gonna run. There was one moment that I was particularly proud of where a one of my buddies startled a little girl. And she said, oh shoot. But she didn't say shoot. Oh. And her dad looked over in like head snaps. What did you say felt like we'd had such a Christmas story moment? Right there. We ran it her outdoor dad. It was amazing. It's era Spain and Jason Fitz. ESPN rate is presented by progressive insurance. All right. So I'm disturbed because I said to you. It's the day after Halloween and the more clout, you get this company, the bigger your name gets the more gas. We can put behind the fits versus Legler Halloween battle this year. Legler did not respond to any of our tweets. Or texts or messages from our producer in trying to start this beef about who's the real Halloween king at this company. But I think if you start the effort day one of three sixty five starting today than maybe we can build up, and so I said Langer day one after Halloween goes to the store for the big sales and tries to get new stuff. And you said does sat in a parking lot for two hours this morning waiting for them to show up and they never did it one of the Halloween stores. They had particular animatronic I wanted, and you know, it's the day after Halloween. They were always a little late, but they just didn't. But this the parking lot was packed. There were a lot of people waiting to get in. And I'm probably going to go back tomorrow. But but fear, not Sarah. I had Christmas music on while. I waited in the parking lot that makes it all better. You are such a weirdo. You spend me Nassir. Hang on waiting for seventy five percent off next year's decorations. Well, listening to Christmas carols dumb. I'm value oriented. I mean, seventy five percent off something that will jump out and scare people. That's not human is a deal. Will listen guys gals out there if you're single Jason Fitz is proof that there is someone out there for everyone. This guy found someone to marry him. There is still hope for you. Don't give up coming up more on Spain and fits Spain.

Getting The Ball Rolling

Around the Horn

Getting The Ball Rolling

"Around the horn around the home real. Here's Bill Plaski the NBA still hammering out the format. It's the first word call. General Managers. Yesterday have voted to go straight to the playoffs over half voted to receive the playoffs. One to sixteen about seventy five percent voted in favor of play in tournament. Twenty percent voted in favor favour but group staged format. This reported by Kevin. O'connor of the ringer is Gutierrez around the warranty. You that's a whole lot of spitball and not a lot of basketball but just yet what is it. I'll tell you I mean it tells me that there needs to be someone making a decisive making the choice here and being a leader that Adam silver when all these other teams are basically looking out for their own best interests as you would assume they would right then and there are fifty percent here fifty percent there then somebody needs to come in and make that choice and obviously Adam silver needs to be that person and I think what's becoming clear here is. The primary goal isn't to get cute with a lot of the changes in the playoffs or make everybody happy. It's to do this as efficiently as possible and to me that means eliminating any sort of extra teams. I go straight to the playoffs. If you anger a couple of teams that were you know the New Orleans Pelicans of the world that's a fire. You could put out rather quickly if you just go with. What somewhat familiar. I say. Starting the playoffs. You want to change it. Change the one through sixteen forget east and West and do that that this would be the time to do it but outside of that. That's the way I think we should go. Bill Paschke your read on this. I'll be that leader Izzy and you're wrong. They need to open up the his domain going this system. They need to at least replicate the end of the season as much as they can bring in twenty teams do it. The group like World Cup group stage. You have a few games. Decide seedings making fair. It's so easy to dismiss New Orleans like nothing. They'll complain but they'll go away. This is for history. And if you'RE GONNA IF YOU'RE GONNA try to do this do it right do it. So at least the teams at the bottom have at least one last shot to make the playoffs. Then start the playoffs Clinton. Yates but the reason why we want to do. This is not about the teams at the bottom that to have a shot in. I think it's about the at the top. It was going to be considered fair competition. If you goof up the playoff format all of a sudden people are going to be saying that rings are tainted or whatever the case may be the cool thing about the playoffs is that is the best tournament as if they could have voted to. Just keep it and get it done as he said. I don't have a problem with that to me. It's a competition thing and if you can keep it as close to what it should be normally. Then you've got the right thing. Get this bad boy over with getting goofy with it just for the sake of it. Innovation isn't always said this new world so I guess you're goofy with no matter what I'm intrigued by your plan. Here you want twenty teams. Is that what you said why? Not all teams works and in two thousand eighteen. If you look at what that's close to making the playoffs in Clinton's talking about well you just. You just started playoffs now. Well then that's losing the integrity of the regular season. You can at least save some of that integrity in those teams. You said those teams throughout the playoffs. They may have lost the last couple of weeks. You gotTA give every team those teams close a chance. Israel Gutierrez the last word. There's enough distance in the standings between the playoff teams and those other teams and talk about history bill. What is the history of the eighth seed in the NBA playoffs? It's not very good. It's certainly not champion level. Good so if we are writing history here history tells us the number one or two seeds are going to win it all anyway. It seems hard to tell the Dallas Mavericks who are seven seat right. I think I last look that. They're going to have to play their way in by playing against the Pelicans or the wherever that anyway when they were so many names well they were so many games. Clear those teams though. They were closer to the three seat and they word of the the the nine seat we've been we'll move on and we talked Major League Baseball Accidents Making Minor League Baseball. It might look like tomorrow. It might not be here tomorrow. Cuts over hundred yesterday. More coming the number could be over one thousand Jeff Passan before Clinton allowed the war to you is the pandemic ending this minor league season. Or is it the desire to save money and reset assists in? That wasn't working owners likey ending this season. It's a healthy portion of both and that's mainly my big problem is that they're using one to justify the other in this situation and that to me. It comes across as slimy overall. Though I just don't understand the look that the owners are going for here if you decimate your developmental system what you're getting at the top from a quality standpoint goes down. I simply don't understand how you can see that you're in the best interest of baseball. Never mind the league. If you're cutting down opportunities for people to play it does not make sense and I think that the public is going to figure that out. After a while I've got minor leaguers hitting me up asking me what I think about their job prospects because that's how out there. They are in terms of guidance. They've gotten from their teams. That's a problem. If the game is going to survive it has to survive at all levels on a professional baseball. Not just the top flight. He'd you see this pandemic ending a minor league season or did you see this as something else does. The owners ending the minor league season. One thing they can pay these guys. It's cost about a million dollars per organization pay through August when the minor league season ends number two. They're gutting the minor leagues. Which is the lifeblood of baseball? It's like the owners don't even like don't want to have a season. I heard some some say something about that. I believe that. And that's a shameful. Just all the baseball owners bad for baseball and Israel could tears seems like they're forcing this streamline because Rodman reportedly wanted what about forty of the affiliates taken away contracted and this is probably going to happen when they end up coming back around but just the sobering reality of it where there are some guys who might have gotten cut any way before this season started but even more of them who their career might be over and they don't even they just didn't even know it until just now because eventually it will be streamlined. So it's just one of those sad situations and I'm sure the major league won't be happy about it and it won't make their Negoti. I wanted to ask about this the tie between the minor leagues in the major. Leagues do you. This Clinton will have any effect on the negotiation for the Major League Baseball. Restart I do. I think there's possibly looking at killing the major league season because of how this is going to affect what the minor leaguers. Listen this can work. There is a world in which you can contract with the minor league teams and still allow independently teams and still have your affiliate system but the way it looks now as if they don't care about anybody that's not in major league baseball and that overall is a huge problem. Bill Plaski SORTA. You'd be the bad news right now or go straight to showed out Clinton. Yates in Israel Gutierrez. Here we go the Andrea Hopkins on Jalen and Jacoby. Full himself the best receiver in football and said if he had drew brees his whole career. Like his buddy. Michael Thomas for Matt Ryan like his Buddy. Julio Jones things would be different Israel was hopkins making a point for making excuses sort of leaning toward hop in here making a point because in two thousand seventeen. He led the League touchdowns like almost fourteen hundred yards. And I think. Tj eighth and Tom. Savage started ten of those games and in the last two years is yards per second has gone down with the Shaun. What's in there? So maybe he just wanted to change of scenery altogether Clinton. Yates if wanted to change of scenery he could have been a little bit more positive about it. And I think that's what he was trying to do but came across weird. We all not Andre Hopkins's the best receiver in the game. The numbers show it and he hasn't had the quarterbacks he's wants to be with Colin Murray. I think that's a good idea but I don't think the numbers are going to go up. He's great as is come on. We know that I think Israel got to though you look at the quarterback sees played with is named a few. It's unbelievable point good errors. We'll move on time for another showdown playing here. It is Lamar Jackson. John Harbaugh saying the next step. Lamar is improved the ball. He was twenty second in Downfield passing last year. Clinton is horrible making a point. Or is he putting his? Mvp quarterback kind of on the spot. Here I think he's making a point but I don't know how necessary it is. They might have gotten snake bit by his inability to hit the deep ball in the playoffs but overall Mars. Accuracy is something that's been tremendous good. He is yeah. I think he can win a super bowl if he doesn't improve on the deep ball anymore. However that is the way to make this offense. Completely unstoppable make everybody live make those edges super fast down the field. Make defenses fall apart. If I was a coach a quarterback who had five hundred yards of total offense as last playoff game and defense that lit up. Two hundred yards rushing running back. I mean feeling pretty. Good about my quarterback or Gutierrez facetime Israel Gutierrez. Thank you Tony. Well Houston Rockets. Gm Dera Maury doesn't always say the right things right so recently. He was on a facebook chat and said that the restart would probably give his team a better chance of winning the championship. Which even though. His reasoning didn't seem to make much sense. Why would you say that at all? It's like not only putting an asterisk on the season but rubber-stamping at bronze ing that thing. If you win this way why would you say that Darryl? Oh Yeah you don't think he's making send me. He's like this. Season is completely wide open now and he should he and a lot of other teams should feel. Pretty good about auto. Trust the rock whenever we restart more never format they chew teen. They're weighing right now. That's it for basketball and that fifth rose back sports.

GSMC Football Podcast Episode 802: NFL Schedule is Released

"Keep yourself in the loop of everything football on the golden state media. Concept's football podcast. Latest news on the field be at college football ten. Sec big twelve pac. Twelve acc to the nfl with got you covered. Listen to golden state media concepts football podcast Own hello everybody. And welcome into the g. s. m. football podcast presented by the golden state media. I'm your host white krieger today. We got great episode for you. The nfl schedule was just released The dust has officially settled on the nfl draft. So we're going to be fully immersed into training camp in off offseason coverage a rookie. Minicamps have already started or throughout the league and was already throwing his new teammates In new york this week we've got a. We've got a great episode. I'm going to give you some games to look for the schedule release that. Nfl makes a big deal every single year. there's a lot of aaron rodgers drama and a lot more news coming out this week. So we'll get into all that and all the different scenarios that can come with one of the best quarterbacks in the nfl to ever do it and why he wants to leave in why is he is really disgruntled in green bay. We've also got some draft grades later in the show. We can kind of sit back and look at these teams drafts from far So i'll get into those and then we've some shawn watson discussions Breakdown the age old question of whether quarterback rookie quarterback should start right away. Because i think that's becoming A really hot topic throughout the league with a rookie quarterback's going to their new teams and teams kind of figuring out that balance of what to do with their rookie quarterback went to put him in. When's the right time. And all of the circumstances that come from those decisions because it's a big one in the nfl as every team is trying to get their quarterback position right first and foremost. Let's get into some nfl news. The nfl's schedule it's officially out I think this is always funny because you know throughout the week. They're building pipe like oh schedule release. It's thursday look out. Schedules being released soon. Come watch our. Nfl schedule released. Show where we break down for thirty minutes to an hour about every single game. That's coming out and it's always funny because it gets leaked about two days at at at least before the schedule comes out anyways. I don't know who leaks it. Or why these teams Provide all this information because obviously the nfl doesn't want them to nfl. Wants them to keep it under wraps for their show but it always gets released a few days before at least some of the games get released a few days before so shot up to that guy. Whoever is leaking these schedules because no one wants to wait in. No one's watching that. Nfl schedule really show. No one's watching that. So i'm going to get so my favorite games throughout the twenty twenty one season to set a first glance. Obviously this is kind of dumb just because you know so much can change. But it's it's fun. it's fun to predict. it's fun to look at these games. A lot of really good quarterback matchups. This year is one thing that i noticed. But it's always fun to kinda point out which games going to be getting. We have somewhat of an idea. We know what quarterbacks are stars what Rookies provide some intriguing matchups in what teams overall going to be competitive but so much can happen with injuries and just overall up and down nature that goes on throughout nfl season. So some of my favorite games. it's a lot. There's a lot of work that goes into it to these pretty interesting There's a lot of data analytics that hardworking people at the nfl are searching for and finding the best possible ways to get as much viewers as possible for these games. And you know the prime time decision making to is takes takes alive decision a lot of tough decisions a lot of analytics overall and a lot of the numbers game so they're trying to find which teams kind of create the most intrigued for those prime time games but nonetheless i have listed some of my top ten is no order but my top ten favourite games for the twenty twenty one season. These games that kind of caught my eye this year First and foremost. I had to do this opening week the first game of the nfl year. thursday night game always features the previous super bowl champion. Which i think is something. That's kind of a cool tradition but we have the buccaneers taking on the dallas cowboys in tampa bay first game of the year. It's always super exciting I also just think this is a great great matchup overall from two really good teams that are that are going to win their divisions in two thousand twenty one we got dak prescott. The storylines His first game back. After that gruesome gruesome ankle injury. He was playing so well in twenty. Twenty which is just what pains me the most of when i saw that ankle injury. So he's going to be ready. He's facing off against the greatest football player of all time in tom brady. Who is going to look to defend his title The buccaneers have pretty much. Brought back the same exact team as last year so they are going to be good. The cowboys are going to be good. They got mike parsons in the draft. I'm really excited to see him. To and overall how the cowboys defense fares against the air raid attack of the buccaneers. It'll be a great first test for that defense and for mike mccarthy's cowboys. So overall buccaneers cowboys. I think is going to be a great game. And i can't wait till that opening night on thursday so i prime time game off the board and we've got another great one week five. The bills are taking on the kansas city chiefs in kansas city. A rematch of the afc championship game last year. Which was a great game so many points scored just started matchup across the board. The bills i think are probably second best. Maybe the third best team in the nfl right now or at worst in the afc aunt got better throughout this offseason at emmanuel sanders fixed up a lot of that. Those defensive issues added greg russo out of miami to shrimp that d. Line and then josh allen make even another jump from that end the pow. Mvp caliber season I think we'll by week five. We'll see if josh allen is making the jump or if he's somewhat stayed the same or if he's a which i don't think is going to happen in buffalo. But unless you've got to the best young quarterbacks in the nfl to the biggest arms in the nfl these throwing it fifty seven yards down the field every time every every every series. We'll see we'll see some big plays happening so you can't go wrong with bills at chiefs in week five a week. Nine the packers head to kansas city to take on the chiefs now. This is very contingent on whether or not aaron rodgers their. But there's gonna be a great game if he is. Because you've got to again to the best quarterbacks in the nfl another great quarterback match up the most talented. I've ever seen the most talented passers of the football. I've ever seen in my entire life. And i think a lot of people regard in rogers is one of the best passers of all. And then you've got patrick mahomes coming in as Just he's done things at the at the nfl level that no one's ever seen before you when you watch that soomro loss. There were probably three or four plays that he made that were either dropped or something happened on the play by the receiver whether he was hitting tyreek Hills helmet or or whatnot. Where he those are plays that just. No one has ever come close to making Plays breeze khalid diving across the field fully parallel to the ground and throwing it side arm. The arm angles. Both these guys can do some absolute magic with the football. So you have to tune in week nine for the packers at chiefs My fourth game. I've got for this. Nfl season is the week sixteen week. Sixteen might not be too many playoff implications for this game. But it's the jacksonville. Jaguars against the new york jets. And i think this is a great game. Just because of all the storylines the number one overall pick i the number two overall pick Always cool in. This happens I don't think the jags and the jets fit squaring off would ever be on this list of top games in for the nfl season. But these give credit give credit to these two teams front office their organizations for getting their quarterback for the future and providing some hope for for both nfl fans to watch a good product and then these team their team fans for being able to just kind of have a quarterback That they can rely on for the future and have hopeful for the future because this game. They're they're sure to be just a lot of entry. Run game well. Depending on how trevor lawrence is doing at this point. I don't think either these teams will be in the playoffs situation scenarios. But you never know. And we'll have urban meyer new head coach against robert soleil new head coach Yeah and i'm excited to see zach into. I'm really see how. Zack wilson comes out this season but hopefully at this point. They've got the rust off their belts. They've made at least thirteen. Fifteen starts already hopefully at this point in the year. And i'm really excited for that week's matchup because it's personal you know it's personal for a lot of these quarterbacks when you're going up against your kind of draft counterparts. I bet there's a little more fuel the fire. So i'm excited for that. I've got another jaguars game on this list. Who who would have thought we've had we would have to jacksonville. Jaguars games so far. Because the jaguars bengals. I have them in their week. Four thursday night football matchup. You've got trevor lawrence. We've got joe burrow it's a rematch of the tweet. Nineteen college football national championship game. Which i'm i'm really excited for. Joe burrow coming back off his Acl injury this week forces going to be earlier in the year. Thursday night football Little tuneup before the chaos. That is nfl. Sunday and again storylines. I think is you got the you got the national championship. Two guys that compete against each other in college to number one overall picks In consecutive years. And the this'll be an early look. Trevor lawrence and early prime time look trevor lawrence. I'm gonna be glued to watching him in the first season. Because i want to see how he's going to do but joe burrow. You can't go wrong with that. Because i love joe burrow. He's one of my favorite young quarterbacks in the nfl. My next game. That i'm going to get to the ravens. At brown's this is strictly not only because you see two teams are going to be really good this year but it was one of the best games football games i've ever seen when they played on monday night football last year. You'd lamar baker trading plays huge plays back and forth the mark getting hurt going in the locker room and then only for trace mcsorley to come in get a first down. He gets hurt. Lamar comes back running from the locker room Scores the go ahead touchdown on a crazy play on four thousand two gyms so markey's brown It was just ridiculous watching that it was incredible entertainment. That's why people like me watch the nfl. It's just because it's the best form of entertainment and it's true it's real and it's live and it's all happening and you just don't know what to expect but this game was high scoring the browns. Every time you thought the ravens we're going to pull away. The browns would come back. Make some big plays kareem hunt. I remember had. I believe the tying touchdown or it have been the go ahead only in the game just before just tucker the best kicker i've ever seen in the nfl hitting the game winner so that was really cool overall just the division games. You can't go wrong and lamar baker. Making plays back and forth week fourteen. That's gonna be a good one. No matter what no matter where the those teams are at that point of the year. I think this is going to be a fantastic game so week. Five we've got the rams at the seahawks. I really can't wait to see matt stafford In the nfl. We'll get a look at him on sunday night football week one but matt stafford nine the nfl. For the los angeles rams in that. Sean mcvay offense. He's got a new new scheme new fit and is exciting. I just the rams seahawks games are always good. Sometimes they're defensive battles sometimes. They're more offensive games last year. It was a lot of defense a lot of really good defense being played. But i think this matt stafford led. Offense is going to be a lot more dynamic than we saw. What jared goff on just from a pure arm town capabilities. What stafford can do throwing the ball. Downfield and be more accurate consistently is what sean mcvay really needs and then go against the seahawks brussels and there was some drama early off season on whether or not he wanted to stay in seattle but they figured that out. The seahawks are always going to be good team because you have a great head coach pete carroll that defense really started to pick it up towards the end of last season. But it's whether they that team can kind of just put all over together at once is going to be interesting to watch so week. Five rams at seahawks can't wait for that game with four. We've another primetime game and this one is probably my favorite on this list. This is a really setting game. It is the tampa bay buccaneers against the new england patriots. In foxborough tom brady coming back to new england for the first time since leaving just so much intrigue so many storylines behind this game in. It's just be remarkable to me because you've got bill belichick who you know you know wants to prove this year that he can win without tom brady. You know that's in the back of his mind and the last season didn't go. The way you wanted to skip majors is interesting to see that leash with cam. Newton and mack jones. I don i think matt jones destined to sit for a while for the fact of learning this offense. But i really hope cam. Newton has a bounceback year another year to get more comfortable in offense. He finally has some weapons. Their defense is sure to be. Just stout. And i think bill belichick will be able to kind of scheme up a lot of it. Is that battle that battle between belgium defense in tom brady to the best aerobic game planners in history of the sport. I think that's incredible. That's gonna be incredible to watch Against so many storylines. Tom brady is going to be competitive. Bilbo jake really wants to win and again. I'm just thinking. Tom brady is going to be every doing everything he can out that we preparation to find holes in the first three weeks this season and the finals in that patriots defense and then bill bojangles the same one of the best game of all time on defense to just slow down. Air raid. Attack caused chaos. Get some pressure on. Tom make him uncomfortable. That game is going to be so fun to watch. I can't wait my ninth favorite game. I saw of the long long list of nfl schedule games for the chiefs and ravens again quarterback quarterback quarterback match up. That's why we watch. Nfl to watch the best. Young quarterbacks patrick mahomes for some are jackson. I don't know if there's much more that needs to be said Based off of that and then you just have like their to. They've been to the most consistent teams in the nfc for the last five to ten years so chiefs that ravens week to Getting up early on and that's just too young stars in the nfl and then my final game is another prime. Time is week one. It is sunday night football it. is the chicago bears. I the rams now this is also pretty contingent on whether or not just in field is starting week one for chicago. But the more i look at look at it as a bears fan. That's where things can happen. We never know. Matt nagy in ryan pace said eight owns our starter. They said that right after the draft. They said they'd talked to him. They said there's been good conversation back and forth but at the end of the day if they training camp in any dolton still ended and then justin fields is doing what he did in college. I just don't see a way that avon starts week one now. I could be getting a little to answer for this. The fan in me really wants justin fields. Play right away but overall You're were likely looking at a mid season entry for for justin fields but again i think he's one of the more intelligent quarterbacks drafted the nfl ready quarterbacks from the draft the more you look at it with experience in the talent so again if any starting i don't think this is a top ten game of the of the regular season but just matt stafford. His first game is ram and then chicago possibly having the first game which doesn't fields even still that that that you kobe's defense is so fun to watch with all the stars in the talent they have going against. Sean mcvay that's just going to be a really fun game. I think to watch. And i'm going to be nervous. No matter who is starting quarterback for that game so based on just the nfl records in the win percentage from last season thaw five hardest schedules in the nfl are the steelers the ravens. The bears the packers and the vikings three empty north teams on that list. I think is has to do with They have some tough division matchups. They've nfc north is playing the nfc west and the nfc north to really really really good divisions. They're playing both of them next year. So that w has a lot to do with over australia schedule. We also don't know district scheduled just because it's better to look at it when the season is completed then you could be like okay. This team heart schedule or at this team has played. Three teams have one loss in the first eight games of the season. That's pretty impressive. So again we don't know where these teams can be at at all. But that's what we have to work with so far the top five easiest schedules in the league or the cowboys. Eagles the cowboys the falcons the buccaneers and the dolphins really. I'm hoping jalen hurts. And devante smith really can take advantage of that. The buccaneers i was pretty surprised by but the eagles. I really hope they'd take advantage of that easy schedule and really get a lot of reps for jalen hurts and devante smith. I hope they can take advantage of that one more note. The packers have four. Primetime games right out the gate. They've got the saints game of the week week. One monday night. Football the lions sunday night football players. The forty niners. And they've got the cbs primetime game against the steelers. Is this the league kind of doing some foreshadowing. In predicting aaron rodgers will be in green bay. Assuming that i don't know. But i mean they would have to flex some of those games out if aaron rodgers is not a packers uniform because we are not gonna watch. No one's gonna wanna watch. Blake bortles in four prime time games early in the season. I mean i love. Blake bortles. But i don't think anyone wants to watch that and they don't then fell would be foolish to kind of have all those prime time games so i think they might know something who knows. I'm gonna talk more about an rogers later in the episode but again. Thank the nfl schedule. Recap and. I am really excited for this. Nfl season. Before i get to the rest of the show.

Hello everybody and welcome back to the g. S. mc football podcast presented you gordon state media concepts. I'm your host wide krieger. I just got done breaking down. Some of my favorite games for twenty twenty one. Nfl season after the schedule was just released. This week But there's some wonderful news. I want to get to and first and foremost that is the tim tebow drama. The tim tebow sports cycle continues as he is expected to sign a one year. Deal with with the jacksonville. Jaguars not a quarterback not playing baseball. He is now a tight end for trevor lawrence. And there's lots of breakdown kind of win talking about tim tebow the first being. He is thirty three years old. And i don't see how well this can work out. Just looking at it from afar but timothy was prove people wrong before He said he's gonna go baseball and then ended up being a very bad baseball player folded around in the minor leagues. But he's obviously a freak. Athlete would just having the ability to play in the nfl and in them beat but he was not a good quarterback he really couldn't pro. He was inaccurate is mechanics. Were awful and he somehow found his way to a playoff game but he is thirty three and now he's trying to make this transition to play completely different position in the nfl. The highest level and that is tight end. I think the unique the unique aspect of this is just looking at it and urban meyer is the new coach of the jaguars. He is the only coach that i think would have done this in the nfl. If tim devoted up any other coach thing I wanna be tight end. I'm trying try and new position. I can get a try out. I don't think they give them a call back. And i don't think he has any chance to make the team but nonetheless. Meyer coach tibo in florida. They went a national championship together. Tim tebow probably reached out said urban. I'm glad you're in the. Nfl is awesome. I wanted. I wanted to make a comeback on board. I wanna play some sports. That's probably what tim tebow said right. And a reminder was probably like all right you want to get was like yeah. I can do that Now i don't know how those conversations went down but it's it's got to be a tough adjustment for tim tebow to make that transition. And who knows if he makes the team is going to go through training camp so we'll be able to hear more about what he's able to do from tight ends perspective. My odds are low that he makes the team and makes though the opening day roster after all those cuts that they have to make but who knows Former nfl tight end shannon. Sharpe said it's just going to be hard to pass catching aspect from from what i've when a lot of former. Nfl tight ends in nfl. Have been asked about this recently. They say the pass catching aspect won't be too hard of a. It's just all the little things that you to attend into shorter routes The motioning offense the blocking being able to get setup no understanding all of the schemes from tight ends perspective. I'm sure to fantastic football knowledge. It's it's been around the sport his whole life. But plato has completely different and knowing how to block when the block. Maybe he wants. He's going to be used. As more of a receiving threat tight end primarily on different downs. But you got to be able to block a little bit as a tight end. So that's what shannon sharpe had to say about that. I think a lot of people respect his overall system but don't know necessarily how will do with this transition. Kellen winslow another four tight end. Says he will be able to catch really easily but it just the blocking and also getting hit. It's gonna be a really hard adjustment. Because you're gonna come across the middle. Tim tebow and you might take a shot from a linebacker and you might be yourself shoot. I'm playing in front of while. I was also quarterback. So i i wasn't taking hits like this all the time and that might be kind of like a little jolt of reality for him i mean to do. Tv t. tim. Tebow is a pretty big guy but still getting hit like that. At a consistent rate. I think is going to be a little bit of a. Shell shock for the former quarterback overall to me. This seems like a money. Grab move more bringing attention to your team and selling tickets. Most of all now he would have to start week one if you wanted to go that route the attention in the selling tickets route which i'm not putting pass urban meyer because it might not be a lot but there will be allowed a certain sector of fans jacksonville. That are going to the games and be like. Let's scouts tv time even though you have a i corps the just just drafted number one overall. That should be enough intrigue. I think but tim tebow he. He brings fans out and he puts people in the seats. So was the main issue with me. I was just just that there probably are better. Tight ends out there. That are not getting a shot. And tim tvos getting this kind of favouritism. Guess it's the name of the game just having the relationships in connections you can you can have in the nfl. That tim deal has with urban meyer. But like i said no other coach would have made this move this season. And it's it's gonna be it's gonna be interesting to watch how plays out in in training camp because he has the affordability but again. I just don't see this ending well and you had tiba winning a playoff game. In twenty ten he won the division can really throw the ball. Put together some magic. And you had the whole t boeing saga. I really just took the nfl world by storm they year. Even though he couldn't complete passes and had great defense in could they. Their team could run the ball but they all he also was able to somehow make enough plays with his arm. But i just. I just don't it. It's more of a intrigue and it provides attention and excitement for the nfl season more than anything rather than actually looking at it from a pure football's perspective and how he's going to be able to do there was another signing recently and that is blake bortles who recently signed in greenback so blake bortles. I'm going to get into the aaron rodgers trump but the packers just signed him. It's pretty news but it. I think it's maybe a foreshadowing at preparing for life without rogers. The packers also just didn't have another quarterback on the roster other than jordan love. So he's going to be a training camp arm but bortles bounce. Back bounced around since making that championship game against the patriots for the jacksonville jaguars. That was really fun. Fun time to be a blake bortles fan as i am but you know he he. He didn't cut it. He didn't cut it as a starting quarterback in the nfl couldn't couldn't be consistent and now he's bouncing around as it back up with a lot of experience a lot of knowledge that i think is very useful. No matter what So if bortles a starting week one. I think the packers are a whole nother world of trouble. But it's a good arm to have in in green bay while you have while you're waiting for aaron rodgers to come off this hiatus or maybe come down from his earlier earlier aggressions from this offseason. Because i'm gonna get into that next but overall this news means something but not really much. It all depends on what aaron rodgers decides. So what is going to happen with this. Aaron rodgers trauma. There's been some more reports coming out more negativity from aaron rodgers towards the packers. I thought the most interesting thing was that there was a team group message. The packers team grew message that got leaked and pretty much it was saying rogers was saying in that grew message. How brian good against the packers. Gm is the same as jerry krause now. If you don't know jerry krause's he was the late. Gm of the chicago bulls that pretty much dismantled the entire bowls team after they'd won six championships. Two three petes and he was trying to blow the whole team up and take a lot of credit for a lot of success at the bulls had despite having michael jordan on. Your team and there was a lot of john with that. I encourage you to watch the last last dance documentary. That goes into all that. But to compare brian good against others for to compare. Brian could against jake cross. I think is very telling. And it's a sign maybe four. What's to come with this relationship for starters. I don't understand how you let this news leaked to the media unless rogers somehow did it intentionally but some pretty significant stuff and you've seen some packers players come out like davante adams who said he would consider his. You'd really consider his position on the team in in in the packers organization if he said quote his guy. Aaron rodgers is not on the team. So you're you're already starting to see kind of that. Recoil from what could happen in the fall out that from what could happen if aaron rodgers. Just hold out and doesn't wanna play. Which i think would be just devastating for the packers but again to compare them to to jerry krause. I think he's is that thing is. That's gonna stick with me. Because michael jordan the star of the bulls brealey felt alienated by them. Really felt disrespected. After all the work that he had done the bulls could have won multiple multiple championships. I think it's it's it's stupid not to assume that and joe cross come in the way and the organization of the front office got in the way so the season may be what is happening in green bay with overall the the draft selections in the personnel moves. That they're making. That isn't happy with but i think there's a few scenarios go look at his aaron rodgers steal the first being is jordan. Love so that packers. This all started. It's the catalyst behind. All of this is when they pick jordan love. They were multiple good receiving not only picked him. They traded up in the first round for jordan love and there were a lot of good receivers on the board there was Justin jefferson they could've traded up for who aaron rodgers had said. He has said he really liked that. Pre draft process brandon the really speedy wide receiver for the forty niners was available. And i believe there was one more receiver that they had their eye on. But they ended up trading for jordan. Love the quarterback of the future. They wanted love to sit behind. Rogers for however many years and be the guy but rodgers took that differently and was like hey guys we need a win. Now we've gone to. We just went to the afc championship game. We need like what are you. What are you doing to help me. And and reuters obviously wants to win another super bowl at this point of his career. But this would all be less of a story. If jordan love was good. And i just don't think he is now. There's not a lot of tape on this guy in the pros the you can look at but it just doesn't look good like i just don't see i don't think he's good one because of the packers overall tone during during all of this if the packers were convinced the jordan love is the. I don't think they'd be as distraught about possibly losing rogers as they are right now and the most telling sign to me is that he was inactive for all of the games in two thousand twenty. That's a lot to me. Because when patrick mahomes was sitting behind alex smith He was active for every game in. He didn't start. He started though one of the games later in the year after they had already had their playoff position locked up but he he was active. He valid smith got hurt. Patrons on the game jordan. Love was not good enough to be active on the active roster for any of their game days this year. And i think that just shows that during training camp or whatever evaluation process they saw no. It wasn't a full off season. Which is another factor to look at here but then also signing blake bortles. If jordan love was that guy. Was that dude that you thought he was drafting him. In the first round trading up he would be active in you would also there'd be more buzzer on and there'd be more buzz there'd be more flashy plays that were made in training camp. That really caught their eye. And we're honestly at this point kind of starting to see the damage control from the packers coach and gm. They've come out and really express their passion for aaron rodgers. I know matt with four has said that we need we need. We need rogers back to. Gm is saying that they're figuring it out there figuring out. I know enron was initially wanted a contract extension. But i think there's just a lot more to it in a lot of decisions that have kind of built up to this point It's kind of the way adam. Schefter reported it. Even though i would this move shefty adam. Schefter originally released this this He originally released his all his news about aaron rodgers on draft day the morning of draft day when he could win all the people were wondering what's going. Nfl he released that right. Then and now it's deadly strategic because there's a didn't all culminate to that one point and even said that after the fact but does savvy move by by adam schefter and news breakers drinking that right then and he had said it was a cold. There was a culmination of things from stemming back to last year probably a lot to do with the metaphor coaching decision in the playoffs. And then just overall the overall personnel moves that they've been able to. They have made that. Aaron rodgers is just not liked. And i think overall like i like adam schefter adds said. It's it's a build up of a bunch of different things so again. You wanted that contrary session. There's some debate about that. And then it comes boiled up after that but again going back to love. I think it's hard. It's really hard to be inactive in the nfl. It means one that the coaches didn't trust you to go onto the field at any point. No matter what. And i just think we like. I said we would have heard more training camp if he was something special but again. Who knows because sometimes quarterbacks take a long time to develop aaron rodgers sat behind brett farr for quite some time but we never know. So the first scenario i see happening is the easy scenario. It's roger staying in green bay. So if jordan love really does stink as a quarterback. Aaron rodgers definitely knows it. I mean he saw them in person for a whole season here in the same quarterback room and aaron rodgers kind of has all the leverage in this situation I've always thought that the talent in sports has all the power even though the front office are the people making the decision making or doing the decision making but aaron rodgers of the one with the talent and with the power because he is just one of the more unique quarterbacks in the history of the nfl. and there's there hasn't been anything like him and so you have rogers with either you can demand a trade. He can sit out or you can stay or you can or you can. Who knows what he can do. I just think roger's in the scenario has the pack has the power. If i were running the packers i would fire. Brian could against right now because it seems to be just the root of all the issues that are going on and look. Brian could against could be a fine. Gm could've had acquired a bunch of talent with all the decisions he's made but it's aaron raw aaron rodgers if you're not aaron rodgers for the next four years. I'd rather have that than any general manager. Who's not going to be on the field so like i said that. Nfc championship game decision. Making i think is another big factor that has stuck with rogers throughout but him. Staying is the most likely scenario. It's the least jaw dropping news. That could happen out of this but this feels very unique to me i think. And if rodgers stays the packaging to be good the packers are probably gonna be competing for an nfc title again in two thousand twenty one You still have aaron jones. You still have davante adams. You still robert tanya but the rest of that roster offensively so david bacteria but you lost your your all pro center. The other receivers are just not that special. And i don't know i really. I really think that that's going to play. A huge factor in whether or not aaron rodgers is staying Next year is if they can maybe get someone off season that can that can kinda sway him or if the gm is still there. And i don't know that might be the deciding factor. I'm gonna get into the rest of these scenarios for aaron rodgers in a second but first we have a quick commercial break once again.

Hello everyone and welcome back to the g. s. mc football podcast presented to you by the golden state media concepts. I'm your host wide. Krieger now back for my third segment of the day. When i just left off we were talking. Aaron rodgers and i am bringing down all of the scenarios that could possibly happen with this seemingly endless news story that started on draft night and has continued to boil over and create headlines in the nfl for the last two three weeks now first scenario was That probably the most likely. But i don't know anyone knows at this point what's going on in aaron rodgers. Mind but aaron rodgers staying in green bay theory figuring out with the gm with the gm and head coach. Or maybe like. I suggested firing that gm and then that being the one thing that keeps aaron rodgers in green bay for me that seemed like that would seem like the smartest move for the packers here but overall it's going to be very intriguing bears fan to see what happens. I am waiting for him to get traded to somewhere. So my next scenario is a trade green bay trading aaron rodgers as crazy as that sounds it might be the most logical move for the packers things get to a certain point. Now if you look at the packers history and when brett farve was being traded from or was traded from green bay. They got nothing pretty much. They pretty much got nothing. Brett farve had retired into as an eight because there was so much turmoil between Him in the front office of the packers and the packers organization and there was just clear butting heads going on throughout the end of his tenure there in green bay. There's also something at that point. Aaron rodgers was ready to eat. Sat for for a while. Then in new t fans will ready coaches were ready. I think he was ready to finally step into that role as the packers starting quarterback and so this agency. This situation is really different. Because there's no one already talked about jordan love but there's no one really waiting under rodgers at that packers fence can point to and say hey we're finer and you go you go right along. We we got this. And there's not and when the packers traded brett farve they received a conditional pick from the jets. That was it for far the whole thing like brett farve for initial pick so i. I don't know who is making the decisions at that point. Four green bay. But you have to think that that is going to play somewhat somewhat of a factor in this if aaron rodgers is holding out or if he is not communicating with the team. Or if he just says he doesn't wanna play like i said or v sides co host jeopardy i get into that later than the packers will be dumb not to get as much as they possibly can out of him this year. And there's also the chance that the packers won't be able to get as much from him. Nex you're so when you look at the team. They were trying to trade for aaron rodgers right before leading up to the draft. The forty niners were about to give them a below two picks and trae lance who they got the third overall pick which all the scenarios that i saw the trade scenarios before the draft are way more appealing than just having aaron rodgers. Gone on an end and then not being able to get any compensation for a former mvp. So i think that factor that could factoring into this. How this plays out in the off season. Is that just the packers wanting to learn from their past mistakes and not getting the full compensation when a player doesn't want to be there because yeah it would be really bad to wait too long. Is values really high right now and if you wait you could risk another situation like far because you're going to get two to four draft picks to to four first round picks and probably two to four really high quality players. You look at what the bears were about. A trade for russell wilson. When you look at the forty niners were rumored to have suggested and you look at what a lot of teams right now in the nfl would give up to have aaron rodgers and their team. I think right now would be the time to do it but again that is just a crazy even sentenced to even say is that the packers should trade aaron rodgers. But you never know you really never know with how these things could turn out now. The broncos seen like the most likely suitor at this point They have a really good team there. If they're if aaron rodgers. I mean drew drew lock was a mess last year. And if you had aaron rodgers team you have some great weapons You have a fantastic defense in the head coach vic. Fangio who aaron rodgers really respects and. That's another thing that needs to be. Noted is aaron rodgers in the past when he played against him when when he was defensive coordinator the bears and is always had a unique respect for for vic. Fangio's defense is and how much trouble they've given him over the years back when he was on the forty niners in back when he was on chicago. So i think that So there's that overall just attraction there. And like i said they have a really good team. They've got some weapons in the running. Game in melvin gordon. And then you've got some great. Receivers in sutton caja handlers. A young young prospect. That you could have Really appealing i think and just overall great football culture in denver that has worn a lot of games and the fans are incredibly passionate. You're living in a cool place like denver. So i think that really matters another team is the las vegas raiders. They are another likely candidate. This fit. I wouldn't see working as well as the other one in denver. But i don't know. Jon gruden jon. Gruden might charge. Get two hands on and i think if he was on the denver then vic fangio kind just let him completely advocators at t specialist. You'd be you'd give the aras the complete keys to the offense and he'd say you dude you gotta do I'm gonna. I'm gonna control the defense I'm going to do my job as head coach. But you do what you have to do to win games as your quarterback. Now if the raiders. Jon gruden i think would try to get really hands on Maybe too involved in some ways with with rogers and that could end up to some. I don't know chaos me. The right word Some more candidates. I don't know. I think there's a lot of teams that should be calling the packers in giving getting really overall just a feel for what they can provide. Maybe some long shots either. Some long shots. That are probably never going to happen. I looked into these teams financial situations whether they can afford or What kind of track capital they'd be willing to give up but the giants what the giants going to do with daniel jones the saints. You have four more years of prime aaron rodgers instead of having jameis winston. That's a possibility. i see. I can see the texans doing their their Aaron rodgers go somewhere that he wants to go. And that's the other thing. I think there needs to be noted. He's he's going to go so that he wants so. I don't think the texans. I think the texans try. Who knows maybe a shawn watson swap swap if everything gets kind of figured out there but who knows that'd be interesting if aaron rodgers traded just what a story that would be take over the news world for a while. My third that i could see happening is going to sound crazy. I'm gonna put a little disclaimer here. It's going to sound crazy. It's the least likely scenario out of all of them. But it's aaron rodgers holding out and then even possibly retiring in going to a career of hosting jeopardy. The packers do not want to get rid of him and if he is that unhappy in green bay so before you say okay this is. This is ludicrous. aaron rodgers competitor. He doesn't wanna keep wants to win the super bowl he wants to. He's got four more good years left. He needs to get as much as you out of these last four years and you can still host jeopardy after all done which is true but i bet a lot of you didn't know how much money extract actually made as jeopardy's host for the last twenty years or however long hosted it Piece to travek by the end of his jeopardy career outback was making eighteen. It's i've looked this up on a lot of different sites us making between eighteen and twenty million around eighteen million dollars a year for hosting jeopardy which is not duchess the large amount of money. And if you really wanna get crazy. I think the scenario could make some sense especially if rodgers is has that type of personality that we think he does that really spiteful. Someone's going to hold a grudge and someone that wants to be is gonna kind of hold their ground in these arguments. So aaron rodgers would probably be making somewhere. You're not eighteen year right off the bat. But if aaron rodgers was a fulltime host jeopardy he'd probably make anywhere between ten and fourteen million dollars a year and he doesn't have to get hit. It sounds great. And if you ask me that sounds that sounds awesome. You know he's done everything. You can't as a quarterback In terms of winning a super bowl. And there's still some stats. You'd probably you probably wants to break and you've definitely wants to get another super bowl but you make ten to fourteen million dollars a year and you don't have to get hit. I mean signed me up for that and you just have read some questions on a on a tv show. I'm pretty sure the jeopardy works. Is you they record a bunch of them in a row. So that doesn't leave out. The idea that aaron rodgers could explore career elsewhere in terms of tv in terms of broadcasting in terms of going the tony romo route in terms of being an analyst. I mean there's a lot of ways you could go with this. So if he is steadfast not putting in green bay in green bay just just now what is not willing to trade him. This is the next scenario that i see playing out now. This would shock the world. And like i said from probably wants to compete and get the most out of his prime years that he still has. I mean he just went. Mvp so this is very far fetched. I think but if he's that grudge despite type guy that he is known to be. In this scenario i think makes a lot of sense so overall i think he's gonna be on the packers week. One whether the how that gets figured out is a mystery to me it honestly is dissect really fun like getting into all these different scenarios that we could see happen but i think the packers are really desperate right now and they're going to try everything possible to please him to keep him whether that's making changes in the front office personnel were. That's getting free agents. That whether it's i dunno changing the overall direction of the team. I don't know what they're gonna do but they got to do something. And they can't just let aaron rodgers walk for nothing so i do think it's important to kind of understand the jordan love situation in how if he was able to show some potential then. I don't think any like any of this would be that big of a deal. It would just because he's the former. Mvp moving on from his team. But the packers. I think would be able to move on from better. If they really truly believed that they had something in jordan. Love because right. Now you're going to go into the season with blake bortles join love and an aaron rodgers is probably gonna sit out and not show up for the first few weeks of training camp if i could predict anything. So similarly to the shawn watson situation This is a nightmare for the packers that that would be a nightmare for the packers. He just straight up left so errors will keep an eye on that. We're gonna keep it on that throughout the off season. But i'm gonna i'm gonna talk about a more on a more import. A really important could hot constant topic in the debate in the nfl today and it's become more of a trend in recent years and the question is if rookie quarters quarterbacks should start right away and which ones are we gonna see shun right away in week one because this is something that has evolved over time. You guys like patrick mahomes. That are great successes after sitting out a year Each year behind mall behind out smith. You'd aaron rodgers benefited greatly from sitting a lot of people. Say that no matter. What if you sit. You're you're more likely to be better but a lot of guys have also busted that narrative Early on in their careers. You guys like justin herbert last year. They wanted tyrod taylor to star. They wanna justin herber to sit and wait under the wings. Soak up all that knowledge. And tyrod taylor ended up having Fortunate injury with that. 'cause justin herbert to go in but just never lost that job after that point and it was obvious to everyone who is watching football. That justin herbert could have started week. One and there was no point of tyrod taylor Conversation and all of that benching in the sitting behind so it's different it's weird because because every qb's different every quarterback develops at different paces and there's a lot of factors that go into this. That are out of their control weather. How good the coaching is. How good the offensive structure is how good the players are around you and if you don't have good protection or players in weapons and is that only damaging you to a rookie quarterback to be playing right away. So i wanna get into the rookie quarterback this year and really just talk about what rookie quarterback's i. I see starting right away. What which quarterbacks ic- Sitting from the get go in week. One but i think there's a lot of debate to be had with some of these guys so i wanted to look at some of these some of the brighter young stars in the nfl and whether they sat or not in the first in the first week of their info career if they had for all season you joe burrow. He started right away for cincinnati. He was a guy who's nfl. Ready from the start Justin herbert another one. I talked about. He was ready to go from the start. Patrick mahomes was not necessarily right from the start from the eyes of kansas city. But alex smith was in kansas city for quite some time. And you compare this to kind of like Any don't insinuation which field any don just got to chicago as well. So i've although he's a veteran and he has the experience Alex smith i think kids city organization see kind of owed alexander something in in some sort of ask some aspects and so they were going to do one last ride without smith footsie. What they can do go to get to see their team that gets to playoffs but at the end of that season. They're like okay. We've got our guy. And patrick mahomes is ready so that was a unique situation. Where patrick mahomes. Who's the best quarterback in the nfl. Right now sat for a full season. But i think for most of that season everyone in the chiefs organization knew that patrick mahomes could've played right away. If you wanted to shawn watson was another interesting case study about this. He was not slated to start week. One and guess. Who was tom. Savage noted noted great starting quarterback. Tom savage i'm being sarcastic. Obviously but tom savage start week. One and shawn watson sat and it took john watson one half before he saw the field. Tom savage was benched at halftime. And they're like all right. what are we doing. We have the shawn watson here. He just put for clemson ease national team. She begins alabama. Let's get him in the game. I don't know what we're doing with tom. Savage so shawn watson is one example of someone who was not slated to start week one and the teams kind of just quickly realized. Okay we need to get this guy in there because really this all depends on who what quarterback he's going to provide the best chance to win and with a lot of these coaches some of them on the hot seat some of them. Not but you wanna play the guy that gives your team the chat best chance to win now if you have that kind of job security in that foundation than you might be more inclined to make more moves for the future and make moves under the guise of. Let's develop this guy. Let's make sure we're doing everything we can to develop him the best. We can so that when he is ready to go. He's fully ready and he can just tac tac tac so some depends on what happens to the off season. Depends on the guy that's The veteran qb. That's kind of a taking the younger quarterback under his wing but if the player shows enough promise in the offseason then he goes this season. Not start that player then. That leash is just going to be shorter and shorter. So trevor lawrence. He's the first rookie quarterback. i'll talk about. He's gonna start right away. I'm much really not much of a surprise. Year i'm excited to see reminds offense What kind of kind of concepts. We're going to see from him. What kind of down the field attack. We're going to seize. that'd be more of a college style offense but was a great offense of mind. So i think you'll be able to figure it out and scheme up offense that fits trevor. Lawrence is placed. I really well zack wilson. He's a guy that's gonna start week one There's no one really. There's no one else to start new york and there's no one kind of waiting there to guide him The jets offense is a descendant offense of caution handed in the couch in family tree Michael michael flour their new offensive coordinator was in san francisco. Was the passing game coordinator in san francisco. So he's going to have that. Kyle shanahan type offense where things are going to be simple and you do things. You'd be really simplified for the quarterback. Can you just got to find the open guy. There's only one to to really read. You have to make any religious to find the the the open guy that was the play was designed to because there's a lot of intricacies in decisions to all play earn in decision with all these that goes into all these plays where you see caution offensive guys are just wide open and whether it's the way the routes were combined whether it's the way that the play was blocked you just need. I think housing needs a quarterback to be able to think quickly get to get the ball out of his hands quickly and make those decisions at a high rate. So i if zack wilson can do that in new york and if michael forking on replicate that in new york then i'm all for it. And i think wilson would be a great Fit for that type offense he can eat. Got the the arm town. Get the ball quick. And it's going to be up to what that team can build around wilson. Then we have third quarterback taken off the board and that is trail lance forty. Niners i stone see lance starting week one but this again is going to be a. How is jimmy g. doing type scenario because I think the forty niners are gonna be able to win games which union and made it to a superbowl. His last four healthy season and lance only started in nineteen college games. So i think there's going to be a little bit of a development curve there whether or not trae lance is nfl ready I don't know because it. Trillions was labeled as one of the smarter quarterbacks in the entire draft but just the overall experience i think sticks out to me and we'll see i think we'll see for not gonna trust jimmy g. and but i would i will say if the forty niners come out and jimmy g. doesn't look good. He's got that court that first round. Pick looking over your shoulder then who knows what can happen. Because i would not be surprised if we see lance at around the midway point of the season if the forty niners are not playing up to expectations because like i said they need to win now before. I get into the rest of the rookie quarterbacks and then semi final draft grades. We've got a quick commercial break once again.

It's all in here. Golden state media concepts sports podcast. Listen Hello everyone and welcome back to the g. s. mc football podcast presented you by the golden state media concepts. I'm your host wide. krieger. I just got done covering the first three quarterbacks that were selected into the draft and whether or not i think they should end will or will not start in week. One so i covered. How trevor lawrence is going to be a week. One starter in jacksonville. Zack wilson the same in new york. Trey lance not the same situation. He's got a good quarterback In front of him that want that made it to the super bowl with the team that he's currently on with that roster that foundation to that roster so. I think that they're going to take some. We'll take a little time. But i do think that that leash for Pretty short but now we gotta get into justin fields because that is the quarterback who has been talked about a lot this week in terms of whether or not he will start right away. So will the bears let any dolton ride this season out and or will they just give the keys to just two fields if he's shows out during training camp if he shows joe's out in the off season will they let him take the offense and this is a really tough question. I honestly think because the bears plan from the get go has been to start dalton week one but these things can always change and you really know what what these coaches and what these jams are really thinking and what their thought press really is If don't provides the bears of the best chance to win games. And that's what matt nagy truly believes. Then he will play week one. But that's another thing is matt nagy. Job is not certain after this year and so if things start to slide too much. I think matt nagy will start to feel the pressure from the fans and then just the overall organization will wanna see justin field showcase his talent so so the job security that plays a factor. But the more in more. I think about this. I think justin fields should start week. One and i think he will. I really do. I think looking at his overall body of work he has the poise. He has the toughness. He is the work ethic. He's got the big arm and he's got the mobility with four speed to make to make plays right away. And i think he'll show that right away from day one in training camp now. I do think the bears can be somewhat competitive. With andy dalton. But that's not saying that they'll be able to win a bunch of games with him right away. we saw. How good any dalton was with the cowboys with all those weapons around him and if the defense is playing really well they're clear in creating a lot of turnovers and all news is staying with the offense and he's getting the ball at making decisions that he's throwing it on time and he's being accurate and he's not turn it over then. I see no reason for the jumped. The gun and switched to fields. Because they've said this throughout that the best best. Best case scenario is you're winning games with any dalton. Your team looks good. You look competitive. The roster looks talented and everyone in the organization. Everyone on the team still knows that. They've got their guy and justin field. Because that's what was happening with. Patrick mahomes And without smith. But like i said before. I think this is different. A different scenario in any dole hasn't been in chicago for four or five seasons. Alex smith was he hasn't he's he. Just got there too. So whether you wanna say the inexperience with the offense might play a role. They both had the playbook for relatively the same amount of time. And i think just as the football player doesn't fields is is going to pick this up really quickly and teammates are gonna wanna see him in the in the game. You always have to look at the fan's perspective. Because i think fans really wanna see him but overall every situation is different in every situation has to kind of depend on. What is the coach doing to develop this quarterback. What is this is his offense. The right fit is is the roster this quarterback good enough to even risk starting in right away and because my overall mindset about this is they should start right away. It's moving more towards that as the years go on like why is trevor lawrence saddam. More fit to start week one than compared to just field just because he was picked a little higher. They've had they've had the same amount of called david the same amount of college experience. You could argue. maybe field. Has some mechanic mechanical issues that he needs to work out before he's ready to start but overall i think throwing them into the fire and letting them kind of get a feel free. Nfl on the fly. I think is. It's more useful in the long run but again every situation is different. Who knows what the right thing to do. That's going to be a crazy thing to monitor throughout training camp and also just throughout the bears organization now. The next first round quarterback that was taken is mack. Jones is the final one. That i will discuss. Will mack jones start week one. I do not think so. I'd be shocked if he started week. One i be short shocked. He started really at all this year. Now if cam newton plays really bad and you start to see him skip some passes and he's not able to really just get the offense going then then that pressure builds but i think the way to new england offenses kind of construction constructed. I think i'll it's offenses really complex and overall it takes years to develop you haven't seen a quarterback Be able to come in and play right away in that offense ever. Tom brady sat for years. Bindra butts so when looking at the patriots. I think it takes at least a full season. Frigging fully grasp all the concepts and all the kind of timing patterns that you need to know to to be able to execute it to be able to get the ball out quick can be able to understand where where where people are going to be in. How really bill borak wants you to operate. So i'm really hoping for cam newton I really hope plays well so we just don't have to break down this kind of process all year for yearlong for mac jones but when. Qb's start right away. It's all about fit. And we haven't seen a quarterback start in new england ever like right away we have. We really just haven't so overall. I'm expecting have a big bounce back year. I think another year in that offense offseason and that offense. I think will help him a lot whether or not his shoulder can hold up and whether or not his arm strength is still there in the accuracy is still. There is yet to be seen. But i'm expecting a big turnout from kenyon this year. So now i'm gonna get into my of my draft grades. So i traded all the teams drafts throughout the threat after taking a step back and looking at it and i've power ranked my top five best great drafts. And then my worst. Five best great drafts. So the first draft. I'm going to talk about is my number one favorite draft from the twenty twenty one Nfl event. that happened last thursday The cleveland browns. Cleveland browns give him a minus draft grade. You know. I saw them in the first round. They got greg newsom one of my favorite corners in the drought pilot. My second or third favourite corner in this draft. I love that pick and it really solidified in need that they they had getting getting rid newsom on the other side of denzo war at the huge that secondary Their safeties have been issued. A when gotta safety this offseason from the rams. I think the secondary defense is a whole is going to be incredible. Got jeremiah wushu core more in the second round. He was first runner through and through. And i was wondering when i was wondering the second day i thought you. I thought for sure you'd be gone the first day the second day when when adam schefter reported a few days after that i guess his draft stock fell because there was a heart condition. That came up Later later on the draft process and it hurt them. It hurts dr stock so a lot of teams were scared of that. Weren't sure how serious that was. An weren't willing to take that risk It doesn't seem like it's going to be that big issue. Obviously the browns thing so because they use a second round pick on him. And i just thought that was fantastic. Pick this defense is going to be so legit and soga on all three levels that the browns might be the third best team in the in the nfl they might might be the third best team in the afc at as well. But we're gonna see right away. They play the. I believe they play the chiefs week. One another great game. I didn't get dimension earlier on the show. But they play the chiefs week one in what should be a fantastic game a rematch of the c. Championship or the afc semi-final issue championship semi finals. Last year. that game. I thought the browns easily easily could have won. Should have one. Patrick mahomes got hurt in that game. you had chad any come out and get that first down for the chiefs which was just. It was just ridiculous. Gator so much going on. And i thought if a few different calls go browns way than they are in that game so the browns i m the jets. I give them named mina says well. I thought they had a great draft quarterback for the future. And zack wilson. They solidified the inside of their offense align by taking Lajevardi tucker the best non title draft which was a clear need for them and they add. They added mci becton last year. So i having that kind of young duo to solidify. That offense for the next few years is huge. They're also going to get more out of mess. Which one one of the best receivers in the draft. And i think a lot of fans are really excited about the prospect of lage. More teaming. Up with zach wilson They added unc running back. Michael carter in the fourth round and other great skill position at and later in the draft Regressive in they kind of addressed every single need that they have they had on their team in some aspect not saying that the roster is completely filled out yet but if these guys can develop the team should be really scary in a few years. I had to do it. i gave the chicago bears. a plus. they had some incredible value in jeff trapping justin fields at number eleven It's the biggest need the franchise. And they finally got their guy that they played the drought board excellently. They got kevin jenkins who was a first rounder through and through and he fell to the second round pace all that saw that they needed to tackle for the future and went up and got him. I think he's going to start right away and we'll be there forever They also got guys like cool. Herbert and das- newsom to six round picks. I think are hidden gems and guys that are very skillful in all facets of the game they they can contribute on special teams and they make place to watch a lot of them last year in college. And they got larry born in the fifth round the missouri tackle with their current tackle situation. Kevin jenkins is likely going to start. But i think. I wouldn't be surprised if boron starts to depend on your meaning fatty. Who's been a problem in chicago for the last year. But i think they like born a lot and i think you might bear send. You might be surprised that he can start right away. So the chargers. I gave them a b. They got my favorite off offensive. Linemen in the draft in response slater. They got asante. Samuel junior in round two was great value for that pick and added a solid edge. Rusher with In the fourth round and then got another wideout. Josh palmer chargers seem to be able to find wide receivers throughout the draft. Anytime so i think josh palmer's another guy that to look out for they've really done a good job of developing those guys and overall they needed to protect herbert and address defense and that's what they did in the draft. The dolphins i gave them a b. is my fifth best draft of the year. They had so many picks. And i just love the prospects of having so much talent on your on their roster The got jalen waddell at six. Even though i would have taken devante smith there but they got jalen waddell at jalen phillips address out of miami. Are you the best. I'd rusher in the entire draft at eighteen. They got giovane hall in safety. Out of oregon. Again touted the best safety in this draft. I think he's going to be really good. The liam aiken berg offer the tikal nuredaim someone who could be able to contribute right away That had a tight end in the third to more picks in the seven just overall using that draft copies using those past trades to acquire talent. And they really have exactly that so worst draft grades. I got the packers. I've with a c. Plus they went cornerback in round one. They didn't address the offensive line. They tried to do that. In the second round with josh meyers center out of a hottest state but to me that kind of seemed like patching up a really big hole really big leak on your roster with some duct tape. And i don't know because you lost corey lindley the now you're gonna you drafted josh meyers at ohio state. Is he gonna be able to provide to the standard. That corleones the set with aaron rodgers. I don't know They finally got receiver in amari. Rogers in in the third round. Which i didn't hate that pick but overall just nothing really stuck out to me and the needs that were addressed weren't addressed in the ways that i thought they were going to be so packers. C plus texans. I also got to give him a c plus really just kind of reflects. The situation is so they don't have draft heavily. Didn't have a pick third round Trading those picks laremy tunsil back with miami. So it day just feeling. The wrath of bill brought bill o'brien's tenure as gm. The got davis mills a quarterback at stanford who. I don't think we'll be that good unless if he is it's gonna be for awhile. And odds are he's not as good as devante or shawn watson who who knows if he's going to play some up in houston x. Season they got a tight. End breath jordan out of miami Nelson got garrett wallow. I met crowd of tcu Which i didn't hate that pick but overall not much to work with in houston and just didn't make any big moves like could have i think my third. I gave the raiders a c. minus Really this comes down to how they picked in the first round they got alex leatherwood out of alabama. When i thought there were a lot of other tackles available the took trevan morag another safety. They've they've picked a lot seventy penalty in the third round which. I thought she didn't make sense considering they have jonathan abrams. So it's like how many safeties do you need. I get it the need defensive back help but in who knows if they want to utilize those guys in different ways but overall john grooten and mike mayock have not done a great job. Drafting i gave this saints a c. Minus grade again. Nothing really stuck out to me. I thought there was some different avenues that have gone. I really thought they should've traded up for quarterback in the first round They got paid and turner defensive end out of houston and in round two. They gotta ohio state linebacker. In pete werner i don't think has a lot of tremendous upside. They drafted a quarterback in in book in the fourth round. Who i think it's going to be a bust. But even then he was going to be a backup quarterback rather his time in the nfl anyways so who knows but overall nothing special from the saints. The seahawks again a team that did not have too many picks a lot to do with the trade for jamal. Adams drafted duane s krige the wide receiver out of western michigan in the second round which. I thought they were better guys available. I really did guys. Like brown. In washington were available and they went with a smaller school. I receiver. but they've had some success drafting guys from smaller schools. So i'm not gonna really argue that Really didn't have many picks and didn't do much with them.

I the little engine that could if you will our podcast network grow a little bit by either spread the word by a social media when we posted on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook, or whatever or by taking advantage of any of our sponsors like Scekic, for example, speaking of studs. How 'bout Andrew Brandt so much to get into with him? I didn't even get a chance to get into the af with him. I'm gonna talk to Andrew about the af collapsed next week. But there was so much with the Marcus Lawrence and Russell Wilson in the Packers dysfunction and Josh Rosen. You'll hear it's the big show. Uh-huh. As always Andrew tons of stuff to get to a maven messing around with the big inch or though I do want to hear about the event you have going on Villanova a little bit later on. I know every year you do that. And it is excellent. Let's talk with the most recent things, I guess and that is DeMarcus Lawrence signed a big deal with the Dallas Cowboys kinda rare Andrew for a week in April to be when the defensive lineman or any franchise tag player signs the tag. You always say deadline spur action, and it seems like in this case his shoulder and getting an operating it on was actually what spurred the action that was actually the deadline. Yeah. Rosca day the deadlines come in different ways. And we think of the common deadlines, and I always talk about it at the start of free agency. The franchise tag deadline in February the franchise tag deadline in July. And of course, the start of training camp or season for big extensions. But here we go DeMarcus Lawrence needs sold shoulder surgery. And there seemed to be a willingness from the other side of the Cowboys to get him signed up long-term before he gets that. And maybe the from his side, we're not gonna get that surgery unless we know we're going to be here. Long term so worked out and like you said deadlines can come in different ways. And I think there was a deadline. The deadlines thing may have to add one here because start of off season workouts looks like it's a leverage point for players to say, let's let's do this. And it's a good strategy in my mind. Now, maybe it's a soft deadline, but it's a strategy to say, no, we're not gonna make it training camp or not gonna make it started the season we're going we're starting the two thousand nineteen season. Now, basically, so this is where deadlines are applied. And we can talk about Russell Wilson in a minute. But. Good on the Cowboys. Good on DeMarcus Lawrence. Am not going to get into the deal because I want to want to tease our listeners that I will have David cantor. The agent for DeMarcus Lawrence talk about that deal on the business of sports podcast this week. So it'll be a special Bod cast. He'll take us inside negotiating with the Cowboys for this huge deal for DeMarcus Lawrence. I'm looking forward to that Andrew because I think it's really interesting. Do you ever? Remember can you ever remember a situation where a guy used his health? And like, hey, I'm not getting this surgery until you guys give me my money. I don't know if I ever remember that. It's a good one. I mean, listen, I heard him not Kanter. But the player I think on rich Eisen show earlier this week. And you know, he kind of brushed up against the comment about scenario and shoulder surgery. You know, he really felt like and we'll hear from Kanter about he's played hurt for a long time for this team without security. So we played on the tag last year, and whatever his rookie deal was so. Yeah. It'll be interesting to hear because there's I sense a lot of. Basically saying I played her this team along time and now going to take care of myself, and they're taking care of me. So that will be interesting to hear from the agent side. You mentioned Russell Wilson. Let's let's get into it. He issued an ultimatum. He said, we're a multiple reports in which said, hey, by by April fifteenth, I want my new deal. Now other reports have come out Andrew indicating that he would not skip off season workouts. But rather that he won't keep negotiating, you know, they don't get deal done by April fifteenth. He's gonna play it out number one. Do you believe that? And number two. Do you think it's a good move on his part? Well, here's the deal Ross. I'm going to you know, this is one of those. I'm not a scoop guy, you know, that I never wanted to be. But I've got sources. Okay. And I'm not breaking any news here. But but I kind of know what's going on here. And here's what people need to know about the Russell Wilson contract negotiations, and it flies in the face of my standard line. It's about the money. It's not about the money. You know, whether Russell Wilson gets thirty year thirty one year thirty two year one hundred and forty one hundred fifty one hundred seventy million. That's not the issue. The issue is the thing. I always talk about which is precedent the Seattle Seahawks, including Russell Wilson's first. Big deal have never guaranteed past year. One. This is this is the Steelers model that with Antonio Brown and Lebanon bell. And that's a problem. So yeah, they're going to be rolling guarantees. And Russell Wilson's contract. Your on the roster. Your to your on the roster youth three maybe you're on the roster. You're four all the things we talk about and everyone can save course. It'll be on the run Oster. But are they going to relax that precedent for their? The best player. That's the question. We don't really need to talk about. It's this much guaranteed or this much total. Because the Russell Wilson camp is like really one year guarantee for this guy. Now, everyone can argue, of course, they'll pay him year to of course, they'll pay him your three, but this is really work gets down to breast tax and. I don't know what I'd do if on the Seahawks. I really don't because you know, what this Packers did the Packers through a ton and ton of money to earn Rogers to maintain their structure, and they did now. I bet the Seahawks are trying to do that too. Now, I just think it's a tough. This is where the rubber meets the road in these negotiations team precedent versus unique premium player, and I'm actually see how this goes. Do you think they get a deal done by April fifteenth? No, I don't, but I don't think that cuts off negotiations. I just wonder if the Seahawks are getting pressure. Implicit pressure. Not direct from other parts around the league or the league, you know to to hold firm and do what the Packers did throw a ton of money at him. But don't change precedent. It's interesting. So these teams would rather just more money more money actually than change the structure or the president that they want. I don't really see remember. Yeah. Remember where errands contract everyone's talking about why he's gonna get percentage of the cap or he's going to get you know, he's gonna get a variable contract if someone passes him by and I'm like, there's no way in hell that's happening for the best player in the league. No and the Packers maintain their structures. So then the Packers can go to every other player, and it's no negotiation at all. And that's the same thing with with Wilson. And if you're Wilson's aid. And you're like, I don't care about Bobby Wagner. I don't care about what you did for all Thomas. And of course, the you're going to say that's just what we do. So then what's the point of the fifteen deadline? If if you think they're going to keep negotiating your keep talking through it. I mean, isn't it a real negative negotiate a deadline, then not stick with it? Yeah. I think Russell Wilson suffers in. This is really a weird line to say in the same way that Kirk cousins suffered. They're just nice guys. Right. They're really nice guys. They're never going to hold out. And. I don't you know that in in some way that that hurts Russell Wilson here. It really does because. Yeah, they may cut off negotiations, but he'll never be a problem. Ever. You also Andrew mentioned Aaron Rodgers. And while depend a heck of a we knew this package is of course, it is. Of course, it is. It's been a heck of a week for the Packers organization Tyler done Bleacher report had sort of that in-depth piece on essentially, I think why the Packers haven't been two more Super Bowls one more Super Bowls under Aaron Rodgers and Mike McCarthy, and I guess I'm gonna give you a blank canvas for that one. Andrew, you know, I know Aaron Rodgers came out recently Monday night, and he reacted to it and call it a smear attack, and blah, blah, blah. I'm gonna let you just kinda since you were there for the start of it. And then have observed from afar, just your thoughts on the story Aaron Rodgers reaction to it. And just this this idea of the dysfunction in Green Bay. Yeah. It's a good question. Russ and. Saved this for you and my own podcast because I got so many questions about it for media. And I don't have any shattering news. Sensationalistic news. You mentioned it right there the start. So my experience with Aaron Rodgers with Mike McCarthy was primarily him as a backup. And I saw a very close relationship very close with Mike, and Erin, and I've mentioned this before those three years Brett would go off to Mississippi from January to July essentially Brett farve and Aaron would be in that sort of quarterback school that might call it for four months really leading the team. And that's where we kind of got the confidence to go with Aaron after three years, and they were very close in the development of Aaron Rodgers. And of course, I haven't been there a long time, and and both of them talked about relationships, getting stale, etc. So that's kind of the Mike Aaron part of it. And I really agree with Aaron like come on. Let's not tarnish Mike McCarthy here, you know. I was part of it. What a run how many coaches in the NFL had a run like that you can count them on one hand. So I just think that that's unfortunate. That people are tarnishing the legacy of Mike McCarthy with things like massages. I never saw that. As for Aaron himself. I do think he has a point about players that I know and I liked like jer Michael Finley and Greg Jennings. They have been this is not the first time they've said negative things about Aaron. So this is not news from them and Tyler done who I know went to those guys. And they said the same thing that they've said before about Aaron they're not fans, we get Aaron does have a lot of fans. So I just don't know, you know, what what this advances we know earns the most important player on the team, we know earns the highest paid player in the league. We know he's one of the most talented quarterbacks ever to play. And does he have gravitas because of that? Of course, he does. So does every franchise quarterback? So I don't know. I mean, listen there's Aaron story. There's these other players story and there's probably somewhere in between. It's the truth. But let's I guess my feeling Ross is really let let's just take Mike McCarthy's legacy here and leave it intact. I mean, massages come on whether he got him Sasha or not I mean, come on. He had a hell of a run in Green Bay. And I know people say we'll only one Super Bowl will. Okay. How many coaches have won Super Bowl that are now coaching? So. This is this is unfortunate and. I was not called about the article I can say that too. I also wanted to get into because you talked about guys using off season workout times as leverage, you know, for new deals or whatever Russell Wilson DeMarcus Lawrence. What about Josh Rosen showing up for work this weekend, drew in Arizona? Even though it's full expected that he's going to end up getting traded kind of an awkward situation. I mean kudos to to in my mind arose in for showing up. I I wonder what advice you would have given him. If you were his agent. I wonder what you'd be thinking if you were on the team side. I really want. I mean, if I'm agent we got to have this conversation. I assume that they have and forget about how they're posturing to the world. Whether it's the gentleman's or the coach the organization the team website. You know, do they wanna take color Murray or not? And if they do that's a problem for Josh. So I just I don't know. I mean. They really may be just seeing what trade offers they get for Josh Rosen before deciding whether to take Kyla Murray. But I think they gotta know by now, I think they really know what they want to do. So. I you know, I guess for a second year player. You know, I would tell as an agent I would say, yes, just show up and do your do your time. We never know what's going to happen. And we only have what three weeks to to go through this. If it's s it's only three weeks. So we'll see. But I as I say that Ross it could be longer. I mean, they could trade him at any time. Right. Could trade them in August could trade him in October. So it is uncomfortable. But we'll know soon enough if there's smokescreens about this column situation, I will say this the the team that if they do get Josh Rosen what you know from the business of sports what a great get because the cardinals have paid the bonus. Right. So they paid the big front loaded part of the rookie contract. So all the acquiring team has to deal with are these low salaries for the next three years, and then an option year, that's a great deal financially and a terrible deal for the cardinals. Terrible. So whoever does get Josh Rosen from financial point of view. It's a bonus. Before I let you go in Jrue two things number one next week. I wanna do a little bit more in depth with you on the collapse of the af we just have so much to talk about. So I'm going to save that for next week. Plus in the meantime, people can listen to sort of the remix af podcast. You did last week on the business of sports. That was amazing terrific job.

And then we all know what ended up happening highly encourage people to check out last week's business of sports.

It's those sport of kings order today and save at one eight hundred flowers dot com code football. Stay. Hey, roswell. Let's start today with a couple of announcements the NFL made yesterday. I one preseason schedule has been released and the other NFL announced Twenty-three projected first round picks will be in attendance at the draft in Nashville and a couple of weeks. Right. So preseason schedule is usually most interesting for the national games just to see which which national games will be featured on preseason lotta times teams that they think will have a new quarterback, you know, last year Baker Mayfield against the eagles. I think they've got the Amazon cardinals and against the raiders thinking that Kyle Mary maybe we'll be in that game. So the NFL they're no dummies. They have an idea of what might happen. I think and they try to highlight even those in the preseason tried to get good ratings for the preseason games. As for the people that will be at the draft terrific job by Gil Brandt in the NFL because there's like twenty three projected first round picks. Now, we all know three to five of these guys. I'd say aren't going until day to they're not going until Friday night. But they don't know that yet. And they're. Is a good good crop of guys Cuyler Murray. OB there Nick Bosa will be there. I'll be there. I'll be working for dissolve on that week. So that's pretty cool as well. Stay outside some comments from Aaron Rodgers who attacked the writer of the Bleacher report feature and also revealed the more significant injury that he played with all of last season. So a couple of thoughts on air real quick. Right. Number one. I thought it was poor formed by him to attack tighter done from Bleacher report. I mean, the guy worked for months on the story the guy talked to over fifty people. And if you read the story, it wasn't a smear attack on Rogers or Mike McCarthy or any person in particular. It was an attempt to understand why the Packers have not had more success over the last decade. I mean and part of that was Ted Thompson. Gab literally being asleep in meetings and sleep at the wheel in terms of adding more personnel part of that was Mike McCarthy's offense going stale part of that was Aaron Rodgers. And and some of the leadership issue has and then Aaron Rodgers comes out and says, you know, it's the same two guys always who are kind of bitter irrelevant players. I mean, he really he really came out on the attack, and that's fine. But I don't know how you say Greg Jennings, injure, Michael Finley are relevant. I don't think you win a Super Bowl without those guys. The only Super Bowl you've ever even been to number one number two is not like they were. This story was their idea. The reporter went to them and they put their name on it. You know? I mean, they were willing to put the name on. And even if you say, okay, there's too bitter players can anybody find a single former teammate at Tom Brady that's ever say anything bad about him can anybody find a single guy that ever say anything bad about him? I'm just saying as for the injury. He's got that tibia plateau fracture that Dr Chow said last year that he thought he had that tibial plateau fracture. So I'm not surprised there at all. I just people don't care. You know? I say this to you guys all the time. And then if fell player, everybody's dealing with something if you're inside the white lines for a game, you are saying you are healthy enough to perform and nobody really cares about what injury. Yeah. They didn't care when I had the herniated disc or the broken hand or the sprained MC L or whatever they don't care that Aaron Rodgers. He was able to play all sixteen games. He looked okay out there. Okay. Good. Thank you for playing with the injury. But it's not an excuse. Nobody cares. Well, who says you can't go home? Again. Stephen Gus Cousy Rodney Gunter and Adrian clayborn of all re-signed with their original teams in the past few days. Right. And Gus Cousy gets a two year deal. Good for him. He's a former teammate of mine when when I was there with the patriots. And no six before I got traded Gus Cousy was there Gunter, I called his college games at Delaware state. And then Adrian clayborn was with the patriots last year. But he's going back to the foul. Cowan's Gunter, by the way with the cardinals. He's also a few more af signings cleaning the eagles inking quarterback Luis Perez as well as wide receivers, Greg ward and Charles Johnson Peres has an unbelievable story. Maybe I'll even try to get him on the pod at some point Greg ward. And Charles Johnson wards been in eagles training camp. The last couple of years did a really nice job in the af Charles Johnson. It's probably one of the more accomplished names more the more accomplished players in the af he led them in receiving and take his chances with the eagles. And finally smother news, the NFL NFL PA, beginning CBS, negotiation talks and the lions are going to sign quarterback, Tom savage to compete for the number two job behind Matthew. Stafford. So I'm glad they're starting the negotiations. Now, it'll still come down to August of twenty twenty one. But the sooner they start the sooner they can at least get ahead of it. So good. I'm glad I hope it doesn't come to August twenty twenty one. I really don't. But I'm glad that there are at least having those conversations now as for Tom savage. You know, he just everything he does is just so slow so methodical, and that's not good. When your quarterback. It is good when you're making real comfortable genes like the kind they have at Wrangler. Look, everybody's got a favorite pair of jeans that pair that fits perfectly. Always looks great. The pair you wear out at night at home on the couch at work wherever they are your go-to do not underestimate their importance no-one knows better than Wrangler the authority on jeans using their expertise in comfort and durability Wrangler jeans made for the adventures the go-getters like Bri folks who liked to keep moving whether you ride a bike Obrock or escape board. Or if you're the type who walks the earth in search or something these are the genes for you new styles. Great fits. Wrangler real, comfortable jeans. Wanted to ask in NFL player question will here's your genius? It's time to ask rise the Email address Ross at Ross Tucker dot com, you guys know the drill.

I am an open book, and you'll be automatically entered to win a little something something what do you have today, Bryce if? Right. Good morning Ross I made a contribution through pay pal. And I really enjoy your podcast. I think your take on things as one of the most intellectual voices in your business, really joy, Andrew Brandt. Discussions with him. I question not disparaging other teams. But what team you played for your career? Do you wish you had played your entire career for Moscow enquiring about the Louisiana tech press pass my alma mater by college where my dad taught for thirty plus years. So if that's still available. I would love that one. Thanks, keep up the good work. That's from berry berry. Now. I know why was your alma mater because you're di- was a professor. So you got free tuition. Boom. You see that berry? I could probably I could shred up be like a private investigator. Did you see how quick I figured that out? Yes. Your method of deduction is impressive. Did you know that did you did you recognize that right away? No. In all honesty. I did not. But makes complete sense. Yes. It does member. When I did that Louisiana tech game. And I called you because I was driving from New Orleans to Russell. And all of a sudden it said, welcome to Mississippi and started to freak out. Yes. I pry I'm in Mississippi. What happened I'm driving from New Orleans Louisiana to Russ in Louisiana. And I'm in Mississippi, but I was going the right place. I literally stopped at chick fillet to get some Chick-fil-A just so I had proof that I was ever data Mississippi it'd been awhile since I crossed the new state off my list this season. I crossed Mississippi and Alabama off my lists. How many states I think out of the fifty? I'd have to count it. I think it's got to be over forty. Now. It's got to be over forty the only ones. I haven't been to are like the Dakotas and Montana and Wyoming like up there AMI to me to Hawaii all the rest of them, not Hawaii and Alaska I've been to Alaska I've been Hawaii. So Alaska's awesome. Actually, I would like light out all day when we went. I didn't Alaskan cruise was very cool. So Barry before I forget, you're the sponsor confirmation winner because that pay pal contribution which anybody can always do like weeks ago. I don't have your address, bro. I've had to Louisiana tech press pass sitting here for a while. I don't have your address. So berry Email me back with your address. Dude. I need your address to send you this stuff. Ross at Ross Tucker dot com. Okay. That's a tough one in terms of played my entire. Career. Honestly, I'd say all of them now. So the thing that's cool about the Redskins is that's where I started and finished, and it's only like two hours and fifteen minutes from my hometown. And where my wife's from and like two hours from where we live in Harrisburg the Hershey area now so the reds. He would have been really cool because there have been very convenient for my wife, and I in terms of family, logistics, right? So if I played all seven years there that would have been cool all seventy years for the Dallas Cowboys would have been cool because they're the Cowboys. Because after I got cut ourselves came in. They started to get good. So would have been it would have been nice to have stayed there and and been good. And plus obviously in the media, there's value to being a Dallas cowboy for seven years, that's pretty odd. And no think compacts Buffalo Bills or the team. I have the greatest affinity for. So playing all seven years in buffalo would have been awesome. Because I really enjoyed that experience. And then New England. I mean, if I played all seven years in England, I would've won three Superbowls instead, I one zero. So I could make the case for all of them. I guess I would say New England berry just because that would have been sweet to be a patriot for seven years and win three Super Bowls. So I guess if I had to pick I'd say the patriots that's a good. That's a good question. Speaking, by the way of patriots and Super Bowls. We did the NFC win total numbers on yesterday's even money podcast. So even if you aren't in the gambling at all Steve fezzet, I on the even money this week. We did NFC last week. We did AFC.

RTFP #917: Andrew Brandt

"So I don't get a chance to watch that much TV when I do though. I like when it's a somehow football related and be I like when it's inspired by a true story. I like that. And that's exactly what CW has with their incredible new series called all American. It's inspired, like I said, by a true story, it's about Spencer James crazy talented, high school football player from the inner city gets recruited to play in Beverly Hills and an awesome breakout role for up and comer. Daniel as rush shows, major chops playing l. a. born and raised, Spencer James, especially considering Daniels a Brit. So LA south-central born and raised. The guys are Brit playing him.

Email winner will be announced on Friday as well. You guys know how both those things roll your new, the word when there's just a re tweet of Brian at RTF podcast or me at Ross. Tuck Renna fell or a like when I posted on Facebook, Facebook dot com, slash Ross Tucker, NFL, sponsor confirmation, Email, winter people don't know what that is when they're new. So I'll tell you it's taking major any of our sponsors on the sponsor page over at Ross, Tucker dot com or anything that you hear me say on the show and then forwarded to me, but, hey, Ross, I took advantage of seek here you go. And then boom, ask you question and I'll read and respond to it on daylight today or Thursday. It's how we do it. We also on Wednesday do it with the big show with Andrew Brandt businesses, sports podcast. All right, Andrew, let's get right into it. And one of the things that everybody was talking about yesterday, I personally don't think it's that big of a deal or even worth debating. But it's the decision of Ohio State true, junior, Nick Bosa to try to not come back from surgery later in the season instead to drop out of school now and start training and getting healthy and ready for the pre draft process to me, Andrew, this is almost much ado about nothing. Agreed. Russ, I think the interest is that it's not a running back because we've seen the running backs like McCaffrey, like four net kind of not do the extra stuff, the bowl games, the all star games. This is taken it a step further into the season, but the complication here is you mentioned the injury, so you have an injury, you're trying to rehab that maybe you come back to soon from the injury you get hurt in college or maybe you don't really have enough just take away the time pressure and it's a business decision to be ready for the draft where he'll be one of the top picks. But you know, again, there is a reaction when college football or basketball players, thumb their nose at what has always been. We know that Ross, we know even with players coming out early that people have reaction to that they wouldn't have and the sports golf or tennis or. Baseball, or engineering, or chemistry or music. It's always been there and it is for this as well. Both is making the business decision to use the LeBron James take his talents to the NFL and state support. You know how supportive statement about that. So I think that's where we are. I always wondered if we're going to get one of those situations where player just doesn't start the year at all right. So he knows he's going to be a high pick and he can't come out earlier because of the rule, and he just kind of does the workout thing training thing for a whole year rather than force to do. So by injury or half the year. There's so many different tentacles to this. You know, if you think about it, his teammate last year Denzel ward did not participate in the Cotton Bowl against USC and. Ended up being the number four pick in the draft and is off to a great rookie year. So I remember they didn't make that much of a deal about it when he didn't play in that game, but he obviously made that decision. You know, this would be a lot different in my mind, Andrew, if he were healthy, but the guy had surgery, like, of course, he shouldn't rush back to get back out on the field one. He just had a surgery. You know, this guy that midway through his season said he was totally healthy and said, you know what? I put four or five games that good tape on now. It's just not worth the injury risk anymore. I would understand that that this would be more of a buzz, but this is a no brainer in my mind. Yeah, it doesn't seem to be a lot of debate in terms of if you're looking at it from our angle, the business of football again, comeback for an injury too soon, feel not to take. Just to take away any of the pressure from Ohio State from people from publications media just go work out and. You know, obviously he's got a a bright future ahead in the NFL assuming he's healthy swimming that everything's fine with the injury. Make sense from a football family. His brother is everyone knows held out the longest of any rookie in the CBA history, the new CBA and that will be something that you know tells you this family knows this family has a respect for the business of football and there it is very much. So speaking of the business of football, Andrew, I wanted to get your thoughts. I don't know if this ever happened when you're with the Packers, but want to get your thoughts on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers firing Mike Smith as their defensive coordinator at feels to me like things like this usually happening in drew when a head coach knows he's on the hot seat and really realizes he's gotta pull out all the stops so to speak to try to find. A way to go ahead and get something done and turned the season around. Otherwise, he's going to be fired. Yes. Interesting. Ross were mid? No, I'm sorry, mid October, and we're already having these conversations, but I guess that's the nature of the business. It's so much pressure so much impatience about doing well that we get. What do we week? Six, seven. We're on the huts discussion and we see a move made at the coordinator position, which usually leads to a chain reaction. Somewhere else is going to have a reaction on that team as well. And maybe it comes to the head coach, but listen, you know, and I'm looking doing some prep for the as you know, I work with Amazon on the Thursday night, broadcasts and reading Broncos and cardinals notes. It's like carbon copy. Both coaches saying, yeah, I'm on the hot seat. I know it. So there's two more so it's really it's the nature of the beast right now we're mid October. We're already talking about this hot seat issue. And now the dominoes start a little bit on the coordinator side. What did you think Andrew about the president of the Denver Broncos making very clear that this is a critical time for Vance Joseph. That was not exactly a, you know, a a statement of support. Yeah. And John Elway talking about a soft defense, which is obviously a really antagonistic Termine sports. Yeah, there seems to be some buzzards circling in Denver. Now this is a team that got three points within, you know, the best team in football right now, the Rams. So there is caused for some hope, but you do see these things happening where things spiralled downwards and what happens. People make changes in the midstream. When this keeps going south, you know, we'll see. But now as you mentioned, we have a few coaches coordinators on the hot seat. He just feels Ross like we're gonna have a change before Halloween somewhere. There's no question. It feels like that happening and there's also all kinds of trade rumors right now, Andrew, especially with the Philadelphia Eagles after they opened up some cap space, we've talked about that. We talked about the lady on bell part of it. It does seem like at least in the off season we've had more trades than we used to. Do you think we'll see more at the trade deadline this year? I do, you know? And I'm crediting again, he's talking about the eagles Howie Roseman we're gonna copycat league. He's been the most active trader in the league. And first of all, when he cleared cap room, it was before the aja injuries. So yeah, you can't really trace it to. They're going to go get a running back. As I said last week, I think levian bell to the eagles anywhere is a non starter. Hugh reasons why running backs have to learn the system. They're just not plug and play number two. It would be ten now nine games and you'd have to give up good consideration, high draft, pick for someone. You can't even sign till March, and then it's just a wish that he stays with your team. So that's not gonna happen. You know, Leshan McCoy coming back to Philly. Sure. That could be possible. But again, downside of the career, what do you give up? Don't you want to develop your young backs like core Clement, but back to how it he's been trading and he's been active and it's been successful. So the league copy that even the offseason Ross, when we saw those trades of Toledo and Peters and Sean Pierre, Paul. You know those things. I mean like, wow, we haven't had that and we saw the Garoppolo trade this time last year. I think we'll see some I do. I think we just talked about the pretenders or whatever they are the the fall out of contention IRS. And then there are the contenders and you may see trades between those groups just like baseball, almost. It's also interesting injury that here we are in a situation where we thought lady on bell was coming back this week week, seven told, you know? Yes, PIN Jeremy fallow that he was coming back this week. He's not yet back this week, and I feel like something that has to do with it was whether or not they'd have to pay him for the bye week or the discussion over how much to pay him. You know, while he's on the player, exempt lists. Yeah, wanna get your thoughts on that. I mean, if he reported yesterday or Tuesday, Andrew, then have to pay them for the week. Right? I think so. I mean, listen, this is you don't you and I've been around the block on this. This is so curious. I tweeted every week. I've been in agent and I've been team exac. I don't get it. And people say, well, look at Thomas. Well, Earl, Thomas is making full salary and levian Bill. Ken get hurt when he comes back. And when he does he'll have given the Steelers, not anyone else given the Steelers ability to keep over five million dollars of his money and may go up to six million dollars. I don't get it now my reaction when the report came out, they wasn't coming in or they haven't heard from them. My reaction was well, if that's true to form with all this Levin bell situation, that means he's coming in right away because who knows. But a decent Bacar is agent and levian. I said this. They have to have an agreement with the Steelers, like you come in ex, you get paid x. I just don't think that happens willy nilly. So there's gotta be communication with the agent. They know what the deal is, and maybe maybe the Steelers said, you can come in by week, but we're not going to practice or pay you by week. So come in Monday a week from, you know, come in Monday before we gate. Maybe that's what's going on. But you know to say that they haven't heard from Bill. I just can't believe they haven't talked to the agent and everything's being planned out. You know what's interesting to Andrew because I wrote in a column for the athletic today about something I think actually will help leave you on bell. And that is some of these older running backs. Adrian Peterson, and Frank gore and marshawn Lynch. I mean there's a bunch of guys in their mid thirties, thirty two, thirty three, thirty five that are still playing at a pretty high level, which I think if at least if I were lady on bells agent, I know I'd be bringing that up. Yeah, I know you know the gore but in there are a few this year, but they are the outliers. I've always said that they are total outliers, Frank, Gore's a marble. I mean, look at look at the stars right now the Zeke Elliott's the Christian. McCaffrey's these kind of players, David, John. I mean, these Todd Gurley they're young. I mean, they're on this side of twenty five or there's the short side at twenty five. So do we really think they're going to be productive at age thirty? I don't think so. I mean saquon Barkley. I mean, I know do we think he's going to be this kind of back and four years? I, I mean that four years sounds like nothing, but it's just the, the odds, the analytics, we're gonna nail age. The typical based quantitative look. Don't favor these guys. That's the problem. Couple of things I wanted to get your thoughts on. Andrew. I know you tweeted earlier in the week at Andrew Brandt about the passing of Paul Allen and just some of the things that you observed going to owners meetings over the years. Yeah. And did some Seattle radio and TV past day? I just think that this is a guy that never not never rarely spoke at league meetings, but I was fortunate to be in meetings where he did speak, and I don't even remember the subject Ross, but pure wisdom. Pure analytical thought where sometimes you get owners saying a lot of bluster that doesn't make a lot of sense. I just said, I'm like, wow, you know, that's a mind we can always fire to. He would sit back. And really not say a lot, and maybe you know, weighing only when asked, but when he did it just made so much sense and listen, let's be real. He's the richest owner in sports was and richest owner in the NFL that thing something and it wasn't even close. STAN Kroenke would be second place, but billions behind his net worth. And he would show up in jeans and a flannel shirt untucked, kinda the Pacific northwest look, sometimes a parka, depending on if it was cold and he was sitting meeting sometimes in that parka and I'm, I'm just, I just remember shaking my head looking over there like that's one of the richest men in the world there. So yeah, that's my little testament rest in peace. Paul Allen well and speaking of money. Andrew, I've also seen you tweeting about the NFL's ratings and they're back on the rise. I don't really know what that what we should attribute that to Andrew, but they're back on the rise and just in time, I think for the NFL to have TV extension talk. So the next couple of years? Yeah, in my column this week on sports illustrator Memon QB is about that. The ratings were down a couple a little bit in sixteen and seventeen back. On the upswing this year, you can attribute it to young quarterbacks, good games, whatever it is, but even if they were declining, I, I don't think that's an issue. I just think these deals are going to be massive when they come up in twenty twenty or twenty twenty one. And then reason is they're going to have the traditional CBS NBC FOX ESPN and they're going to have nontraditional Amazon, Twitter, Google, Facebook, yahu, whatever it is and it's not zero sum. I think Thursday night football right now is the future. We have traditional FOX. We have cable NFL network, and we have a streaming on Amazon that my friends is the future for not just Thursday night, and that's what we're going to see these multiple revenue streams come into the NFL where this is going to be true gold. You can't get ratings like this anywhere. And it's showing again, and again, my podcast on the businesses sports last week, Matt win of USA today to study. Was there a Trump effect on ratings last year answered? No, not really. It's all about teams. Good teams bad. And here they are this year going up. And if you read the column, I say to this my final point which is ratings or protests or concussions there, not the worry for the NFL. The word for the NFL is the worry for every sports and entertainment executive, which is very simple. How do you attract and maintain younger viewers? That's it. That's the challenge. And I suggest a couple of ways shorter product, gambling fantasy. Those things are going to be key, but that's, that's the threat. Don't worry about ratings or protests concussions. That's the that's the challenge for the NFL and my challenge to everyone listening is to make sure they check out the business of sports podcasts. There's nothing else like it on the audio airwaves and we've got it always for you over at Ross, Tucker dot com or wherever podcasts or found. Thank you andr. Through actual pleasure. You is always a pleasure. Andrew, actually, keeping the hair that you still have. I've told you guys about keeps before. I'll keep telling you about keeps dot com because I'm going to keep using it for as long as I live because I'd like to try to keep the hair that I have. I do have a bald spot in the back of my head, but I'm trying to keep the rest of the hair that I have because I do a bunch of TV stuff. And yeah, I want to try to keep my hair, so there's two things you can do. Right that are FDA approved. One is a pill that you take in the morning. The other is a topical solution that you put on your bald spot and on your head in the morning and get at night. I've been doing both of them for years. I mean a long time now. You can do it through keeps dot com and they'll actually send you the medicine. You don't have to go to the doctor for a prescription. You know, to go to the store to pick it up. They'll send it to you and you can get your first month of treatment for free by going to keeps dot com slash Ross Tucker. That's k. e. p. s. dot com. Slash Ross Tucker every day. I'll take a picture of it for you guys sometime every day. I put the topical solution on morning and night and I take the pill because I'm trying to keep my hair and this is the best way to do it. By far I've been a lot of research trust me. I was doing other stuff before this. It's this free treatment for the first month. Why not at keeps dot com. Slash Ross Tucker, keeps hair today hair tomorrow. Good morning. We're all sorts to get to usual on a Wednesday. So let's start with the Nick Bosa decision that you already discussed with Andrew. I really don't couple of things here. Number one, whose dad was the first round pick so he gets it and they get it right, like they understand the deal here. They understand that this is a business and you know, here's the thing. I think he probably wanted to try to play for Ohio State this year all year. I think he wanted. To try to win a national championship with his guy. He's been working with the last few years. You know, this is tough for him, but the decision it self wasn't. I mean, this is business, and I think I tweeted yesterday at Ross Tucker, NFL. It'd be a lot more interesting if he just kind of peace out on the team in the middle of the year, the guy had surgery. Not gonna. Try to rush back from surgery for to play college football where he doesn't get compensated. That doesn't make any sense. You know he's trying to get right and now maximize what he's able to do. The financial security. He can get for himself for the rest of his life in the draft in April. Makes perfect sense. Some injury news. We didn't get to yesterday, including season ending injuries to Broncos guard Ron Leary Browns wide receiver. Rod straighter. Lions kick returner Jamal Agnew Vikings, rookie cornerback Mike Hughes. So you got one of those wrong, bright, which one? I think it was. Agnew no straighter yet street or net straighter you should straight or did you do you even know you sit straighter? Cher? Sure, that's we'll go with that. Okay. I could just been a slip of the town. So Mike Hughes, that hurts for the Vikings because obviously there already were having some depth issues in the secondary. Ron Leary really hurts the Broncos because they're often to line was already not doing real well. Agnew's a good returner. Streeter was just kind of just kind of a guy for the Browns. I'd say. Jeez, other important injury updates include the falcons putting devante Freeman on I r and bills, quarterback, Josh Allen is going to be out at least two to three weeks with a sprained elbow. Right? So the devante Freeman stuff is big because for a couple of reasons, one is that really hurts the falcons. I mean, they've had a rough Govan Dion Jones and Ricardo Allen Keanu Neil, just a very, very rough g-o-v it. Now you're starting running back and I think Kevin Coleman to good player. The ITO Smith's done, some good things. I don't think those guys though are devante Freeman, so that hurts. And then there was some speculation that Tevin Coleman might be available via trade, not anymore. Now now freemans going, I don't know that he would have been available via trade anyway, but certainly not anymore because they. We need to have in Calment for the rest of this year. He is in the last year was contract though. So this does give Coleman a pretty good opportunity to show everybody out there. You know what he's capable of and what he can do before he hits free agency in March. And then for Josh Allen, you know, Tom Pella, Sarah does an excellent job for NFL dot com says two to three weeks. But the reality is, you know, Dr Chow who joins us on Mondays, longtime chargers. Team doc said that he put the over under at six weeks. So I don't think, and they're not going to rush him back. They're not going to rush, Josh Allen back. So I take the over. I think it'll be more time rather than less time based on the information at hand. Jeez, other transactions, if not include the Niners signing quarterback, Tom savage, the raiders cutting, Derrick Johnson, and the NFL owners. They got rid of the cross ownership rule. So evidently. Cow Shanahan has always liked Tom savage, so he signs them now to back up Beth who takes a lot of shots. I don't know how long Beth going to last the the raiders are a mess. I really feel bad for raiders fans at this point and isn't that big a deal to cut Derek Johnson? But why did you sign them in the first place? Number one, number two, he gets his money for the rest of the year. He gets ten weeks of pay now ten. Actually eleven. He gets eleven weeks of pay from the raiders to do nothing. And if you get signed by another team, he gets all the money from them to it's called termination pay and you can only file for once in your career. And that's exactly what he's going to do. So that's not. I mean, if I'm the raiders owner, I don't like wasting money on players aren't on my team is the biggest deal in the world. No, but I wouldn't like it. I wouldn't like it at all. Then you've got. This cross ownership rule, and all that means is before the NFL would not allow an owner of another sports franchise to. By NFL team. So like if you own another team. You can't buy NFL team because they won the NFL team to be the focus or whatever. Now they're realizing that's just limiting their potential owners. That's just that's just limiting their potential buyers which limits the potential franchise value. That's not real smart. That rules kind of outdated anyway, the thought processes was that like they wouldn't have as much focus on the NFL team or that you know, they use the NFL team and try to grow the other teams. I mean, really, or they'd be it was a conflict of interest to promote one team rather than the other. I don't think so. I don't really think it works that way. I don't think they're in competition as much as perhaps the NFL use to think they were in by the way speaking of competition. I know a lot of you are in competition each and every week with your fantasy teams. I get it. I'm, I'm one of you. I didn't even check yet to see if I want my fantasy team this week, but either way my fantasy games we either way.

So what do you got? Bright? Well, this is from Frank over an England, dear Ross, Texas Email is a copy of my latest Amazon purchase that I made through your Amazon banner ad on the website, a likely be making a few more whilst I prepare for my first trip to the USA during which I'm going to be watching plenty of NFL college and high school football. Here's my question in the current NFL. Do you think it's possible for a team to have long term success without a typical franchise quarterback as a bears fan? I'm delighted that we've been able to hand out some big contracts this year to some key players like MAC, Goldman, fuller, etc. And whilst other teams doing similar things, think of the Rams it seems like the key is having a quarterback on a rookie contract is not being paid the megabucks. Do you think there's a possible. Future average quarterbacks compensated? I. Compensated for by highly paid studs. In other positions, I feel happier is bears van with Trubisky and MAC than I would is raiders fan with car on a massive contract and fewer other standout talents. Keep up the great work. I love the show again, that's Frank from England who says, PS just finished playing my first season of tackle football. This year is a linebacker strong safety over here in the UK at the age of thirty. God knows how you guys do it properly. I'm a broken man. Well, I'm always so impressed and so amazed by those guys that go over there and you're not over there, but that play football, you know, for free in with pads and helmets on, but I get it. It's a fun. Awesome game. I don't think I would do without compensation anymore, but I would love to go out there and play one more high school game like you tell you that much right now by the way, since I know you're all wondering. I lost my fantasy game last week. I'm five and one now. In fact, I got smoked. I don't know who that is, but I got crushed. Brandin cooks, getting concussed, hurt, Corey Davis did nothing against the ravens nut great for David Johnson. Her Kenyan Drake irt had a big day for me. Crowell was okay, but no, not was not my day for my squad and didn't get as much out of the bears defense against us wiler as I thought I would as for your question, I would say no. I don't think that you can have sustained success that way. I think you can have sh Frank. Short term success that way, but I don't think it would be sustained. You know, I don't think you see, you see very many teams who's the last team to win the Super Bowl that a franchise quarterback. I know you might say, well, what about Nick? Foles? Here's the reality. I don't think the eagles win the Super Bowl. If Nick foles was their quarterback all year, think you can go on a run with a guy like Nick foles, but they needed whence to get them the number one seed, which is essentially what he got them. That's the difference in my mind. That's the difference. So I'm going to say, no, I don't think you can. I think you can have a year where maybe you make a playoff run, but I don't think you can have sustained success without a franchise quarterback. I love to hear your playing linebacker and strong safety. That's when it's really fun flying around making tackles. That's incredible. You guys are incredible. Can't wait to see a bunch.
