I don't see anybody beating the tampa. Bay buccaneers the only thing. That's gonna stop. That train is if somebody gets hurt. That's it and obviously the season-long so maybe that can happen but they i mean have everybody coming back. You got tom brady pulling the trigger. They got a year underneath their belt. Now with that offense and you saw what it did towards the end of the year last year. What do they end the season with scoring over thirty points. Last seventy games of the season gluten soup also and a hit on their draft picks. It looks like a so. They have another defense incoming off the edge to help here. I mean it goes on. And on i know. That's not the sexy pick. But i think we that dynasty is right. There and tom's going to go get his eighth superbowl bowl this year. And we plan. I could say the kansas city chiefs. And i do think it's gonna be the chiefs. They did what they needed to do. They went out and rebuilt that offensive line. And now now they have a top three offense of line in the nfl. And if you give. Patrick mahomes time tyreek hill travis kelsey. I just don't think it's too much just like they've been doing the last couple of years but my dark horses. I love the cleveland. Browns a loved the buffalo bills. I think baker mayfield will continue to get better as long as he can realize that. You don't have to talk as much. Go out there and play. I think he can be a great quarterback surrounded by such great town a great offensive line And i love what buffalo's been doing. I think they're poised to make a deep run. Pick up where they left off last year. The quarterback took a major step. Now he's one of the best league i like. I like what buffalo's opportunities are this ship. If you were a player in today's game with kobe going on and the protocols and everything else would you be pissed. The is marketing vaccinated. Because you feel like it's competitive disadvantage. Honestly yeah yup. I would vaccinated so i know this is a political a lot of people though too hot. Would you say it's a football thing. I mean it's it might be political on the outside world. But i think in the locker rooms. It's hey man don't cost me my money. Don't cost me a playoff bonus type thing. Yeah i'd be a little bit upset by. I beg wants you just get it come on. Let's go. We put a lot of other things in our bodies just to get out in the football field. I think it's safe and yeah i would. I would definitely want everybody on the team to get back in it. So we bought their football games and and for other reasons too. Yeah for sure. You played a long time in kansas city. Obviously the bulk of your hall of fame career was there now. They have another tight end. Who's putting up historic numbers year after year after year. New travis kelsey the pig who's the more dominant tight and you or him. Why don't we always get asked this question. Especially when we're together. They asked that question view. Well you know we do when they say. Who's the better tight end. We pointed each other. And that's what i. That's that's what. I love about us being so arrogant. It know what travis is is. He's phenomenal football player. dominant runs rate routes. I think we brought different things to the table You know obviously. I think what called from the position a lot more when i was there as yet the block and travis gets the luxury of not having to block as much especially when i had marty sean. I am addict per meal You'd better bunch of big boy pads on put your hand in the go block that be bitter linebacker where he doesn't have to do that too much. The rules have changed now. So he's going to be able to put up a lot. Bigger better numbers just like all the titans in the league because it obviously they want. Points and defenses are kind of handcuffed done. But i i love travis. I love my game. I love his game politically speaking were youtube and of course you choose or him but you know confidently begin. I like to say i was. I was pretty damn good. And when i got on the field i always thought i was the best. You can certainly make an argument that your career outside of jerry. Rice might be the most impressive pass catcher of all time. You're talking about fourteen pro bowls and i'm curious. You know your last season two thousand thirteen year pro bowler eighty-three catches eighty eight hundred. Fifty nine yards eight touchdowns. Why did you retire. I was i was done. Iran's course. I was thinking about retiring three years before that and so every year. That's in the back of your mind. Football's tough and the amount of energy that it takes mentally and physically. It's exhausting just to get through one season you. I know a lot of fans out there. Sometimes you look at the screen and you say well it. It looks pretty easy. It is not it is a mental and physical drain on yourself and your family and it's worth it. I'm not complaining about it. But i just ran. Its course from me and we were coming off of really disappointing season With with the with the falcons. And i didn't feel like going out there i was. I was in it just to win a super bowl at that point in i. Didn't i knew our chances. That kind of window had closed went to the nfc championship the year before. And then i came back on. I think we want to games. And it was flat out rebuild type mode and they did go to the superbowl bowl three years later in. I couldn't have hung on that long. And so i just decided to hang it up but i still get to be around football getting accommodate. So it's It's the best of both worlds will be lasting real quick ten seconds. If you had one year in your prime with patrick mahomes what would you style on at my peak. I think i would have been up there but that you know four dead. Thirteen hundred yards and stuff. Travers is doing the thirteen fourteen hundred yards. They can't touch you anymore. They can't hit you before they used to make your head before they used to jump on your back like a capuchin spider. Monkey down the field now. They can't even touch it. So i think for sure i would have put up some some pretty pretty nice numbers that those those thirteen fifteen touchdowns and thirteen fourteen hundred yards all right tony.

New train blockade piles pressure on Trudeau in Wet'suwet'en pipeline fight. House passes 'riot boosting' bill amid protests

The economy will take a hit. Tempers are running short and in the House of Commons opposition parties attack Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Who called for dialogue with the protesters? Do we want to become a country of irreconcilable differences where people talk but refused to listen? We're politicians ordering police to arrest people a country where people think they can tamper with rail lines. But that wasn't good enough for conservative Andrew. Scheer the leader of the official opposition. At least two key things were missing a clear denunciation that the actions of radical activists are illegal and some kind of an action plan.

Who had blocked access to construction on a natural gas pipeline although twenty bend councils along the pipeline route voted in favor the hereditary chiefs opposed it other indigenous leader such as Perry Bell Guard. The national chief of the Assembly of first nations are calling for dialogue.

I think this is very divisive. Bordeaux says the language surrounding the law has been hyped up. I heard burning. I heard destruction. I don't think there's going to be burning. I hope not other opponents say. The legislation peds tribes and environmentalists against government and law enforcement creating a state of fear. The House approved the bill on a forty five to twenty five vote it now goes to a Senate Committee. The legislation specifically addresses protests. That will happen.

"But if you say, you know, you take your for years with your tight end, and I got my four years with mine. Okay. I'm going to win that argument. I got I got a factor in Shannon Sharpe. And Tony Gonzalez with the way they played how they played. I'm gonna throw in and Tonio gates in there. I go back to John Mackey and Mike Ditka. Like, the the position evolved. But I do give the patriots a lot of credit for volving that position because when they had Aaron Hernandez and rob gronkowski. They changed the NFL because they weren't getting wide receivers who could beat you downfield. They were creating a mismatch with their tight ends to beat you downfield because both those big guys could run. But gronk if you'd through it up there, he was gonna get it. And even this year they had a couple of big plays against Eric berry who a great defensive back. He just I watched him. And I just I felt like his body was breaking down right in front of us all of those injuries the wear and tear, you know, he didn't avoid contact contact found him but for four years the best four years of his career. You'd be hard pressed to find a better. Tight end then rob gronkowski and game on the line. And you knew where it was gone. And you still didn't stop him. I mean that says a whole lot. Yep. Oh, thank you. Compare them at all to Earl Campbell at his best his best four seasons at better as physically dominant of all time. You remember Earl Camden, his first four years truly unstoppable. And then it went downhill because injuries gronkowski was like injured health injured healthy. But I think they're kind of similar in that at their best. Oh my gosh. I'm seeing something different here. Yeah. But we don't look at her. Oh Campbell is on the shortlist greatest running backs of all time he needed at least two or three more really great year. Yeah. I mean, he he gave punishment, but he took punishment Certa same way with gronk. But I you know, we love to label, and you gotta who's the greatest of all time. And we love that argument. And that's part of the reason why we do what we do because we love to have these discussions, but greatest of all time. I I look at him as kind of a combination of a lot of these great tight ends Abol time. And then the position has changed. What gronk did was old school? He blocked, but he also could beat you down field, which was new school. And you were probably going to target him ninety to one hundred times a year that was different. You didn't do that with John Mackey who could beat you deep. Mike Ditka who was athletic as tight end. And then you go to Tony Gonzalez who was basically a wide receiver lining up as tight end. And he could beat you deep. Antonio gates gave you the guy who was a basketball player who could establish position. And he's going to be a whole Famer as well, Shannon. Sharpe was somebody who could beat you deep as well. So I think we do a disservice to those who played before when you go. Okay. There's your label greatest of all time..

We we don't give New England players enough credit. This should open the door for some of those New England players to potentially getting into the hall the hall and the committee did a tremendous job of clearing space in certain positions. I like the I like where we're going with the hall and. Kevin why the other modern era guy to get in all five of those guys super deserving to me, there were six borderline no doubters this year, and you can only get five in just must be the curse of being a receiver. See that you're going to have to wait Isaac. Bruce, similar to you retire. Second all time in yards when he retired any still waiting and so I- he'll get in at some point. But nobody got another receive Elleman going in to pay more on. Okay. I'm back to the game. Now Todd Gurley wasn't much of a factor in this one much like he wasn't in the NFC title game. That after all the talk about how Gurley was going to be a huge factor. Girly had just ten carries for thirty five yards last night. See what was wrong with girl yesterday? Oh, I don't know. What's wrong with them? And I do respect what he said after the game. But leading up to the game the reporters that watched practice. They said that you could see a limp in practice. Now he did practice and he did take most of the work load in practice. But I'm just gonna put it like this. You don't give a guy sixty five million dollars and only let him touch on the biggest game of his life that many times? So based on who I'm paying there's something wrong with either how I'm paying people and who's getting the football Todd Gurley. That's not the Todd Gurley that I know he has to be hurt. It's the only plausible explanation and people will say they'll look at this and say this why you don't pay running backs. No, no. This yesterday's game was an example of how valuable Todd Gurley is because when he wasn't able to be Todd Gurley that offense ground to a screeching halt. I would not be surprised if this week we find out always having a scope or a minor procedure on NATO getting smarter. You've been hanging. Gronk last night. He had the catch to set up. The patriots only touchdown. He was asked about retirement after the game and said he needed to take a week or two to think about it and decide see what he thinks in gronk might retire. After this body that tells you they're going to take a week or two to go into another profession means they already got their mind made up. So I wouldn't be surprised man. This his body has taking a pounding. He's won three Super Bowls. But he has paid for. He's still a very very young, man. I don't think grunk can play at the level that he was used to play in that. So I wouldn't be surprised at all if grump called it quits. I think right now, it's probably seventy five twenty five in favor of this was his last game. And if it was it wasn't a vintage performance, but he had a vintage gronk play that set up the game winning score in my eyes, even with the short and career. He's a no doubt hall of Famer one of the best tight ends we've ever seen. And I think you'll have a successful. Post career career the Pedro's..

"Talk about a guy who on the patriots who is a hall of Famer. And I'm not talking about Bill Belichick. Tom brady. Those ones are obvious. If this is the last game of rob gronkowski's career. He's a hall of Famer. Julian Edelman, I think has no shot even though and set it on CBS post game and Adam Schefter said it on Twitter for the Super Bowl MVP rob gronkowski on a per game basis is the best tight end in NFL history because of injury he won't play as long as Tony Gonzalez or any Tonio gates but over fifteen yards a catch seventy nine regular season receiving touchdowns. Also had a rushing touchdown. So eighty regular season touchdowns in just nine seasons. Plus another dozen touchdowns in the postseason and a four time. All pro. So best tight end in the game for a significant stretch of time. Obviously a multi time champion. Fifteen playoff games sixteen now with the Super Bowl. So a full seasons worth of production in the postseason multiple titles. Fi five pro bowls four all pros. If rob gronkowski retires today. He's a hall of Famer.

Now, if you did that laughed out of the building you trade an elite cover corner for a very good running back, and you also give a first round pick that just goes to show, you how much things have changed champ went on to be unbelievable in Denver. And you guys would be happy to know. He's a terrific human being as well to Riddick. Human being an awesome player and just very smooth and gift in everything. He did Tylar who's from Pennsylvania, western PA Aliquippa. He's a quip played against him many times when I was in buffalo and actually by the time I got to New England. He was with the jets and the one of the games I was on the patriots team had to pick six Brady, actually. So he's very deserving. I didn't know if even one corner would get in this year, let alone to, but that's the thing by the way, you know, you guys will Email me or whatever. And you'll say this guy got snubbed or that guy. Gots nabbed the reality is when you look at the fifteen finalists all of those guys are hall of fame quality, all of them are hall of fame caliber, you know, the four zero linemen are Mewa who got in. I watched a lot of Milwaukee because he was with the jets when I was with the bills and the patriots. He was in. Incredible one of the most athletic probably the most athletic center I've ever seen. He was like. The precursor to Jason Kelsey for those of you that just picked up football more recently, very nasty. Terrific technician, very similar to Kelsey and played forever and just had a ridiculous ridiculous career. So he was one of four offense of Lyman that were finalists. But Fanta Steve Hutchinson. Selley? I mean, all those guys are hall of famers. I'm surprised bacilli did not get in. I thought this was his year. I thought last year was his year. But obviously the fact that he had the injuries and the lack of longevity is really really being held against him. And I think as much as I love Sally and think he was the most dominant offensive lineman. I remember you have to at least respect that argument that some people have I don't agree with it. But I respect people that say, well bacilli was great. And Milwaukee was great. But Milwaukee was great for a much longer time. And I get that. I can appreciate that. Congratulations to all of those guys. Like, I said all fifteen finalists are very deserving. Stinks.

I know you see this. Right. It's very busy. Here's the I thought you were going to interrupt. Our good, buddy. Nick Fidel excitement and mentioned that Matt Nagy was named coach of the NFL. I thought you were going to interrupt. What Nick we we back in action? We gotta hang up on you. You gotta go. Matt Nagy was named coach of the year. Yeah. You didn't say that. What base chess just Matt Nagy the head coach for the bears is a twenty eighteen coach of the year. That's how you doing pal. That's how we doing the business with your chest. I'm trying to teach him Maggie. Nagy as the Associated Press Twenty-eight coach of the year for taking the perennial. Also ran bears. The which means the John box peers to a twelve and four record in the NFC north championship. He earned twenty four votes from a nationwide panel of media members who cover the league. So there you go Anthony Lynn, by the way, get ten votes. Well, ahead was Nagy over Anthony land. So there you go Matt Nagy of the Chicago Bears the coach of the year. Oh. We we were talking off the air. Do you think Matt Nagy would have had an Chicago Bears would have had as much as says Nagy, meaning is coaching ability. Had Khalil Mack not been stolen from knows, Oakland, Raiders stolen, given stolen. No, no, no. I think that defense was already solid with with the with a team Hicks that secondary made it to another level. I think with the signing of Kyle fuller. I think that that defense was already solid before Nagy got there. And I just think that Vic Fangio did a great job of elevating your skin quickly MAC there. He makes a much real difference for that Chicago team. So congratulations to Matt Nagy. So also when it comes to hall of fame how about this four defensive backs. Ed Reed champ Bailey Tylar as well as senior finalists. Johnny Robinson were among the eight selected for enshrinement for the halls board of selectors on Saturday at the Georgia world congress center. Pat, bowlen's also in longtime owner of the Broncos longtime personnel executive Gil Brandt, I thought you'll was are in the hall of fame. He's active on Twitter. He knows what's going on. He leaves away on Twitter when it comes to like former front office. Executives. He's always dropping knowledge on their built the Cowboys. He'll brandt. Tight end Tony Gonzalez and center, Kevin Mewa also selected for Saturday's instrument that is a really stellar list. Right. There might yes. And you ask who's gonna be the headliner. I think you can probably go a number of different directions, you know, with Ed Reed. And also, you know, Tony Gonzalez. Which by the way, who is a former college basketball player to sports star at a cow. But I mean, Ed Reed was probably the easiest choice editors group when you think about what an and I noticed because which Ghana was the head coach of the Indianapolis Colts. When he talked about defense, two guys. He always talked about as easy first ballot hall of famers, Ed Reed. And Ray Lewis and Edry clearly dominated his position he dominated dominated and made opposing receivers and tight is think twice when it came to come across the middle of the football field. Yes, I'm sure Chuck Donald told you that. But it took them an hour and a half to tell you. You let me know when you have gone on the show with the defensive coordinator. But I can't wait to hear those forgotten wisdom's that he likes to drop with all those cliches. I don't understand. Hi could see. Hey, mike. I'm sure that's that's gonna be great. So so that now was wondering who would be the main event there in that list? And it could be Champions League. Could be and read Tony Kahn's. Also, be inspirational, I'm sure and in one of the best tight ends of our generation for sure. Yeah. I mean, you think about it. Tony. There's a lotta great tight ends. He's as the tight end has become especially athletic titans had become so valuable in passing passing attacks. Will when you look at what Tony Gonzalez was able to do in Kansas City and dominate and simply, you know, he was basically another wide receiver. I mean, his ability to go up and get to football so often that athleticism along with also having no problem putting his hands on a defensive end or linebacker to to block he fit in perfectly. He he he was kind of a trendsetter. I mean the guy with the hundred eleven touchdowns in his seventeen year playing career.

We know your purposely would have had enhance the Lakers and Golden State plan all Super Bowl weekend ratings. Well, listen. You got it was the game of the week. Of course, you got there. My goodness. But here's the stories for those are just joining us. You hear more about it than sportscenter. So the eagles are expected to franchise quarterback. Nick foles interesting story, there is saquon Barkley continues to run I mean named the top rookie the Mahomes name the offensive player of the year. Matt Nagy the top coach of the year. I think I don't have a people in any of those. I think you have a problem though, with the top rookie though, you think it should be Baker Mayfield. Right. Yeah. I'm leaning more leaning towards more Baker put again for the impact that he had the way will carry the team. He revived the Cleveland Browns. He got them going with his dynamic play. Again, saquon Barkley is going to have a hell of a playing career. But the quarterback position is so valuable when you look at the pecking order of of value on a team quarterback number one pass rusher. Number two. And I think Baker Baker Mayfield have had a bigger. Impact for Cleveland this season. Then what saquon Barkley had for the New York. Giants. Don't worry about it. Now. Listen, Freddie, kitchens to get that team. Right. I didn't say they picked the right head coach. Jumped the gun down. I think Gregoire too many g's was just buying that spot. But they got pretty kitchen. So okay, we'll see what happens. Bobby carpenter gives his thoughts to the Super Bowl. Almost exactly twenty four hours from now.

You wanna talk about a California guy. You want to talk about a guy who catches passes? Tony gonzalez. Your former tight end is up for the hall of fame. Is there any doubt in your mind map that he deserves to get in? And they would mean to you to see him get in. There's zero doubt in my mind. I mean, he should be happening Saturday night. And I'm excited for him. He deserves it. He's one of the most professional people I've ever been around. I learned so much from him. It was it was such a cool time in my career to learn from an older guy and to see how to do it the right way. And he taught me so much. It would mean a lot to me just as a friend. He's a really good friend of mine, and I just be really really happy for him. He deserves this his family deserves it and I hope for him. It happened Saturday would imagine throwing a football to a guy like that. It's got to be great. But just as a guys got so much that it, right? When I used to interview him he'd show up in person or on the phone when I worked with him at CBS on the NFL on CBS when that guy walks in the room, you know, something's happened. Right. He's just one of those really different guys. He's a presence. He's got pushed the president's in aura tomb when he comes in that. But you know, he's he's gonna be special regardless of what he does when he comes in. He does TV or whatever he's doing. He's just really good and all that stuff, but he had a presence in our locker room that was unmatched. I mean when he spoke he didn't speak a lot. But when he did man, you listen to everything he was saying and then his production weekend and week out. He's probably one of the most consistent guys I've ever been around. You knew exactly what you were going to get from every Sunday list. You've been around a few guys I got actually consolidate Julio Jones Austin Hooper now number of other great targets in your career as you look at this. What makes a great receiver or a great tight end? I mean, what are you looking for in a pass catcher did signals that they're different from the rest separation how they create separation and everybody does it differently. Like Tony Gonzales created separation through length and through body position. Whereas Julio Jones create separation through size strength running right past or running right through whatever it is. But then we have a guy like Calvin Ridley. Who had a really good year for us to and he creates separation using his quickness in his ability to release off the line of scrimmage. So for me, the the number one thing is if guys can separate you always got a chance to to move the ball and be productive. Now, you're playing a game to really high level. Still you see quarterbacks now playing into the late forties. Early forties is still playing at a high level. You're taking really good care of your body you on the small things like that warm up routine. You broke out a couple of years ago. They had your teammates laughing and talking junk at the same time. What about that? How much more time? Do you spend focusing on things like mobility, and stretching and massages I came into the league it's night and day. You know, it was all about, you know, weight training getting stronger and doing these things when I was younger, and it's it's really changed, and I feel better and I'm stayed healthier adjusting to training differently. You know, I've got a massage therapist that I work with three days a week during the season that it's it's not just getting down to. I mean, it's it's working and deep tissue stuff. Deep tissue stretching. All of that stuff. That's really helped me, but there's a there's a real mindfulness now of wellness and how to take care of yourself to to create longevity. And and I think that's important. I really feel like I can play for a long time. If I continue to feel the way that I do there's also the you have to learn how to win like you said you've got learned about the league. This other great story in your rookie year third. Snap your career. But before we get to that your backup. Chris Redman's orgy it when something happens in his league, man. Don't celebrate too much where you gonna wear self out. So what happened on that third snap food a sixty two yard touchdown pass on skinny post on the backside. And so he scores and I was going crazy Jenkins right Jenkins.

"I no more fruitful financially secure life, and that's really what we've been focusing on. And today, I have an incredible gift for you. Constance Schwartz Marini. She is former NFL marketing expert who just about seven years ago struck out on her own is the CEO of smack entertainment with is of some incredible clients of hers Tony Gonzalez Dion Sanders. She started the company with Michael Strahan. She is the woman behind the scenes everybody knows who Michael straight ahead is. But not everybody knows who constants is. And she is a workhorse in this organization. She's been around for years. And I wanted to find out a little more about her story and so- Constance. Welcome to the show. Thanks for having me. Okay. So the way I thought we kicked this off was I- in looking at kind of what you've what you've done. You got started in the NFL right out of college college, which is an incredible career for anybody to land that job right out of school. What were you doing? When you first got so to really put it in perspective. This is nineteen Ninety-one. There's no internet. There's really just the beginning of computers. So you type your resume on a typewriter, and I couldn't even type. So I originally wanted to be an advertising, but when I would go to these adage and sees they'd say, okay? Here's an egg timer type, sixty seconds type sixty words minute. And we'll interview and said I've no problem starting at the bottom, but I just can't type under pressure. And they've said we'll thanks for coming in. And it's just took a really big loss on potential future CEO and the ad agency. So that was the beginning and end of my advertising career, and then the head hunter that I was going to because again used the New York Times found a head hunter that would help please you. So when I first met him, and he told me about a position open it NFL properties. He's like you don't have enough office experience because this is had no connections. I didn't have the internships, it was just hustle, work hard, and hopefully it'll pays off. So we said go take another job work for six months at another company. Get the office experience and come back to me. Which I did I go back and everything does truly work out when it's supposed to because the position that originally was open. I would have never lasted because it was a bit of a crazy person who would have been working for. And so when I went back in I hit a done some research with these done in Bradstreet reports and walked in and met with the employment agent. I mean with the human resources executive, and he said, how do you know, these things about NFL properties? And I got really nervous. And I said I pulled everything up on done in Bradstreet report. I've never had an assistant come in and do that. And I just, you know, I guess the way my mom raised me. It was just do as much as you can. Because no one's gonna give you anything. And I got the job is assistant to the vice president of corporate sponsorship and a director of corporate sponsorship. So a man and a woman, and I just went in just literally so excited and just anything. They gave me I took it on, you know, full force full speed ahead met some great people to this day. We all really it's like one of the best alumni networks ever of the people that have worked there. And my like, I said my boss Maureen Rosen who was the one that took the shot on me. Just look as much as you want to take on them to give it to you. And she was one of the best mentors. You could ask for and over the ten years. I was there. It was special events children's education programs charity, branding marketing, the NFL experience. We were involved in the very first one that was ever created Super Bowl twenty six I was able to work on the tailgate party, which was tiny party through for ten thousand people. You know that the owners and the networks and the sponsors went to so had an amazing amazing ten year run there. Can I back you up to the very beginning? One of the first thing you said really interested me, you you went in and all the advertising people said and both advertising and the NFL both of those industries are heavily male-dominated. And so it's difficult any way to kind of break into that..

"Jennifer Kushinka, some of our top stories and headlines Trump and congressional leaders meet again today about the shutdown seven killed in a highway crash in Florida. The December jobs report is out today. Fifteen finalists for the pro football hall of fame, including Tony Gonzalez. Ed Reed, not on the list, Jimmy Johnson and Hines ward. And a home in California featured in the movie bird box is starting to get the curiosity seekers on its front porch. And the owner has some ironic news that story in about twenty minutes. Some three dozen pharmaceutical companies will be raising drug prices this year, ending a self-declared halt to increases what's behind the higher costs joined now by Steph Denson president and co founder of GDP advisors. Seth what's going on. Well, listen, this is just the we'll call it the continuance of a delayed. It was supposed to occur last year. Remember about midway through two thousand eighteen drug manufacturers came out and announced they were going to be raising the prices of drugs and after some shaming from the Trump administration. They halted that and announced at that time that they would be halting until January twenty nineteen. And now, those chickens have come home to roost. Why is it that drug prices are so high in this country is that the research and development? That's part of it. I mean, it is ridiculously expensive on average about two billion dollars to bring a drug to market and that takes time to it's it's roughly at twelve year process to go through things like FDA approvals and trials and so on. So you know, it is a very expensive process. The challenge that we have in the United States is that we're footing the Bill for that. While the rest of the world gets to kind of freeload off of it because we pay for the research and development the tax payers do through insurance premiums and co pays and co-insurance. So as to follow up to that we pay more right as Americans than in than other countries, we do in other countries most other countries for the most part, they have price-fixing structures in place where the US based pharmaceutical company wants to sell a drug in their country. They have to adhere certain price controls. And so the challenge that we have or the issue that that creates is that the does drug companies utilize the the backs of the American citizen to pay for the profit margin while the other countries get to freeload and ultimately get top line growth benefits from that. Well, I never got a thank you card from anybody in Europe or something like that. Not likely you will anytime soon. But the Trump administration is identified. This is a problem is trying to do all they can to start to drive those costs down, which I think is one of the drug companies aren't too thrilled with kind of the press. They're getting out of the White House. All right. So, but I mean is there any way short of price controls here, which I presume would never happen. The way they happen. Elsewhere in any other way to get a handle on this stuff. Free markets work best when there's competition rights. I think there's a couple of things that we can do one is the reduce our, you know, we'll we'll call it pull back some of the red tape requirements of bringing new drugs to market allow foreign competitors into the United States foreign testing of drugs to come in. You know, it takes so long and so much money to bring a drug market in the United States and part of that is because our FDA doesn't allow other companies come in and the other piece of that is is the patent laws. We allow drugs to stay on patent way. Too long and get patent extensions in the United States. We need to change that. All right. So what do they vary from drug to drug these patents and patent the patent extensions? Well, they can it all depends on how that drug manufacturer refile the the patents. And so we've made it too easy to do that though here in the United States. So Dr manufacturer. Tweak one little thing, and they can refile a patent and get in some cases up to a five and ten year extension on that baton, which means that they control the marketplace. We're speaking with Seth Johnson. He's the president and co founder of the market analysts company called GDP advisors. We're talking about pharmaceutical companies raising prices in two thousand nineteen so go back to your point about about foreign testing in foreign drug companies here in the US and why from a competitive standpoint. I guess what? Prices are higher because of our limits. Yes. So the FDA is for years not allow foreign testing that may occur in other westernized countries people even places like Great Britain, and France and Sweden testing that might be done there. When the drug is brought over here to the United States the testing has an effect start over we don't allow that testing to come in. And so nor do we allow other manufacturers from outside the country do sell their drugs in the United States. So there's a little bit of a protection structure around pharmaceutical companies here in the US that allows them to continue to call a gal the American citizen for their profits. And the best thing for consumer to do is be a consumer a lot of the drugs that are getting prices raised this January actually have generic alternatives. So it would be who the consumer not to just always take the same drug because it's been the drug taken always look at generic alternative. There's a great website free for consumers to use. It's called good. Rx dot com and consumers can go there. Find out if there's a generic term for their drug and even get coupons and find lower cost places to get that set Seth Denson president and co founder of GDP advisers. It is twenty minutes now in front of the hour on This Morning, America's.
