Brooks Brothers Bankruptcy: Nostalgia, Anger, and a Bidding War
"The abandonment of the suit helps explain the struggles of one of America's most iconic fashion companies, brooks brothers, the two hundred two year old brand filed for bankruptcy protection on July eight sure blame cove nineteen, but now you'd be wrong. Suits with the three piece with Thai or skirts and high heels used to convey professionalism and competence, they served as symbols that you took your job seriously and respected your customers, the ones you were treating too expensive lunches, madman style, but even before the pandemic they'd become something of an anachronism. Most of us now see little to no relationship between the way we dress in our competence at work, think Mark Zuckerberg's hoodies. Indeed expensive suits can be viewed as a sign of elitism. Put it starkly. The corporate fashion code has gone by the wayside. Brooks brothers struggles represent a cultural shift, not just a Kobe tragedy. Brooks brothers famously dressed all but four presidents. It is the longest continuously operating fashion business in America and until this month it boasted about making its products in America the Brandon's three factories in the states in Massachusetts North, Carolina and New York. CEO Claude Delvecchio is planning to close those factories. We'll get to that in a minute. As you know, apparel sales have been decimated by pandemic closures in April nobody bought clothes whether from Brooks brothers or JC, Penney and other retail casualty, but did you know the actual numbers? Clothing sales fell almost ninety percent in April, according to retail dive, but brooks brothers began looking for a buyer about a year ago. The company operates five hundred stores two hundred of them in the US sales have been flat at about a billion dollars a year since twenty, seventeen, prior to the pandemic bankers estimated the company's value at three hundred to three hundred fifty million dollars. Figure Delvecchio disputed. As, I mentioned the company intends to close its three US factories later this month in the gritty industrial town of. Massachusetts home of its largest factory. Its largest immigrant workforce is being denied severance pay many of those workers, immigrants and refugees women from the Dominican Republic. Vietnam Burma and Nepal have made the company's fine clothing for years so far brooks isn't budging. Despite pleas from the union, and from members of Congress according to the Boston Globe in North Carolina, the factories, the only large employer in the little town of Garland closure would affect that town forever, mayor winifred. Hill, Murphy told The New York Times. In response, CEO, Del Vecchio, says for survival. We must hang onto as much cash as possible, but the globe reports that its chapter eleven filing includes plans to give compensation benefits, severance and bonuses totaling millions to other workers. Brooks brothers will transform, but unlike many of its retail brethren its survival is not in question. In fact, at least one bidder for the company believes it can earn annual revenue of three billion dollars within five years more than triple its current sales, so many buyers are vying for the brand at both the Wall Street Journal and Bloomberg used the phrase the races on those making bids. Bids Include Mall Company Simon, property, group, authentic brands, group and W. H. P. Global another bidder is a group of Italian. Investors led by a company called GIO which typically helps fashion companies improve their online presences. The Wall Street Journal possibly with tongue firmly in cheek, considering the state cut of Brooks brothers clothing says Julia wants to quote introduced some European flair to the quintessential American brand. Julia's clients include Armani Maxmara and other designers. Brooks brothers is accepting bids through August fifth, so brooks will survive, but what about it's cheaper? Rival men's warehouse tailored brands which owns men's warehouse and the more upscale Joseph. A. Bank plans to close at least a third of its fifteen hundred stores. It said this month it hasn't filed for chapter eleven protection, but it came close according to CNN. That threat remains even after it stores reopened. Sales have been falling. They were down about eighty percent at Joseph A. Bank in the first week of June, as we all continue to do business in Pajama Pants as we all know nostalgia sells Joseph A. Bank doesn't have nearly the name or the history of Brooks brothers, which drips with nostalgia. Teddy Roosevelt apparently insisted his rough riders. Riders wear the Brand Abe. Lincoln was also a brooks brothers customer, one reason for the bidding war beyond what is sure to be the lowest price anyone ever imagined for the stalwart brand. Is What author Lisa Burn? Bach believes about Fashions Post. Pandemic Future Birnbaum who authored the twenty ten book true. Prep argues that the company must be saved after the pandemic finally end, she writes. There will be weddings. There will be funerals. There will be. We hope live operas and theatre and premieres in concerts and fancy dress parties. Where we can't predict the future, but we can observe the present, and what's happening to upscale apparel in the US. WHO's buying it and WHO's making it. Reveals a lot about our rapidly changing an enormously conflicted culture.
Romantic Bridges and Little Museums of Paris; Burgundy
"Of the small specialty museums in Paris were allowed to reopen weeks before the Lou, but just because they don't attract the big crowds of the famous museums doesn't mean they aren't worth your time in just a bit. We'll hear why they can be worth. Including in your travel plans next time you're in town and we'll explore what you'll find in the peaceful countryside of Burgundy and easy giant from Paris. Let's start. Today's very French edition of travel with Rick Steves along the banks of the Seine, the busy river that winds through the heart of the city. Paris to me, it's the capital of Europe and you can never get tired of ten. I just love the way the THEMM lined through. The city in the city faces. It's river and I also love the way it's laced together by bridges that just give so much meaning to your wondering through Paris. Lynch Lima is a journalist for the New York Times. She's written books about Paris to her. New Book is called. The river that made Paris, and she talks about the bridges that lease together the right bank and left bank. In Paris Elaine. Thanks for joining us. Thanks for having me on your show I. Love The way your book. The Seine the river that made Paris illustrates the importance. To France end to Paris and of course, Paris was born on this end, wasn't it? Yes, there would not have been a Paris. Had it not been for the Senate and for the heels lessee tae the island that is the center, the heart of the city of Paris, and that goes back to Roman Times. Pre Roman Times Poetry Roman times absolutely now when we think about the send through the centuries through most of the centuries, it's been a mucky riverbank where. Where you've got all sorts of slime and sewer and garbage and poverty, and and then over the centuries built this wonderful embankment that sort of teams the river, and and makes it an elegant part of the city. Talk a bit about the embankment in Paris will the embankment of Paris really the way it looks like now was conceived in the nineteenth century at before that you could pretty much walk along the banks of the Seine and bring your cows and horses. Horses and dogs right into the river, your laundry, whatever now it's a little bit more challenging, although there are places right now in Paris that you can walk down into the river and go swimming if you're so inclined, but with this mighty embankment you also have elegant bridges, lacing it together to the right and the left bank, and one of my favorite things in Paris just to walk along the banks of the river, and in or cruise the river and enjoy the. The bridges I've got so many vivid memories of just being on the top of one of those river, Seine, tourist boats, and going under these glorious bridges, and the more you know about the context of these bridges, the more funded is to sail under them. Let's just go and there's four bridges that really come to mind from. Yes, I'd love to just talk about each of them as if we're cruising down the river and I. we come to the punt new. Means the Newbridge, right? It means the new bridge, even though it's the oldest bridge in Paris. And when it was built, it was finished in the beginning of the seventeenth century, it was a miracle was an architectural dazzling creation, because it was the first bridge that didn't have houses on either side, so that people would come to the pontiff and look at the expanse of the river. It became the heart and soul of Paris where. You would come and have all sorts of wild activities. You could join up for the army or by. Orange juice or have a tooth pulled or watch jugglers or exchange God. You could buy false teeth and glass is and wooden legs and life, poultry and skin whiteners, so it really was the place to be was a gathering place a Piazza for the city. It was. You know what that's exactly right? It's like a piazza in the shape of a bridge. Now when you said it had didn't have houses on either side. Are you talking like lined with houses and shops like the punt Vecchio in Florence and the London Bridge in. Exactly and that you finally had an open view to the river, and you didn't have these barriers in the shape of houses blocking your. Visual joy of Helseth Martavis city that has some pride because it's just a practical matter. If you had a bridge that you needed help, pay for and maintain. You'd rent out space to it and it would obliterate the fact that it feels like a bridge so London Bridge and the Punt Vecchio it would be lined by shops that were paying rent to the city, so they could have that great bridge. Bridge punt new F-. It's a piazza. That's great. The next bridge we come to is the punt art that right the what what does that mean, and how is it unique well? It's the bridge of the arts and I love this bridge. Because it joy. It's a walking bridge. It's a pedestrian bridge, and so it's a great bridge for picnicking, but if you stand front of this bridge at the Louvre. And look through a gorgeous courtyard, but not many people know about is called the core cafe, the square courtyard you can look through the arch, and you can see right across the bridge to the St to default on the other side of the river, which is where the economy foss says is head. You just feel like you've got this magical long view of Paris
Vestiaire and Depop on the Rise of the Resale Economy
"We invited Max Bittner. Ceo of vascular collective and Marya RAGAS COPD pop to the voices twenty nine teen stage to speak with B. O. F. Sustainability correspondent. Sarah Kent about the rise of the resale economy. Neither you come from a fashion industry background so I wanted to stop by having both of you talk through way you come from and what drew you to this opportunity and Maria if you would like to kick off sure so late Hayden I also have to accept that I come from. The math made consulting World and I did that for about five years and then I jumped into the world Started at groupon. I did that for about five years. And then I I discovered depot actually before being part of the team Because I was looking for some vintage clothes and I was talking about the fact that he was a mobile first platform which five years ago. It was not that obvious Many companies wear addresses from web into mobile and so the fact that he was mobile. I the fact that they were using social media very smart way to build community to to a very very organic way I was redirected by it. So that's why he joined a Max. You had very strong equalness background but not in fashion. So why make the jump into this industry so I previously built a company called Lozada in Southeast Asia which was ECOMMERCE general merchandise? We are actually terribly bad at fashion and was one of my obsession for a long time and I really failed miserably. Added and after selling the company TATY BABA. I was looking for opportunities moving back to Europe. In vecchio opportunity came out of nowhere after I didn't know the company understood the concept of retail. But I've been in such a tunnel for the last seven eight years that I didn't have time to digest it but what fascinated me when I looked at the business in kind of engaged with with Moore was the incredible emotional connection between the buyers and the sellers and the products in the brands and the engagement with the platform and coming from Asia. This whole concept of community social engagement is is such a big part of ECOMMERCE and I felt that you know. Of course you have pioneers like the pope driving that in Europe but the rest of the environment was still heavily Amazon Dogma ties about a surge after card filters efficiently as possible. You know the emotional connection of of you know not much so I felt this was an incredibly exciting but and you know living in a world where we all ask ourselves what to do. It seemed like an amazing opportunity to actually run a business. Which core kind of fundamental is built on sustainability is built on on circularity? So you know I looked at what the business was good at and I think the stairs and amazing fashion. Dna A great brand amazing supply and a look at what could be improved with my background on Scaling and Tech Company and I felt the combination was an amazing one. Utah Utah Johnson. Very topical points this Stain Ability. The power of community all of which kind of encapsulated in recall. Mus Is it that that's helping to drive this market now. All Maria water. What is driving the growth? We're seeing and resell the moment So I think there's there's three things that are driving. Industry one is definitely a consumer behavior change towards Secondhand again five years ago it was hard to to believe that there was gonna be in a way you think about the next generation more than fifty percent are already buying secondhand or concealing to Isaac and hunting the near future so this is something that five years ago it was really hard to to conceive. the second thing is the fact that sicken sick and heights more accessible and so our consumer supressive by default so allowing people to buy high quality items at a lower price is definitely something very attractive for consumers and lastly the proliferation of all impact from slightly Bob and respective it's allowing a basic concentration of inventory at digitally military that allows consumers to have more choice in the case of of depot. I think the driver has been more and driven by our core audience so ninety percents of our users are under the age of twenty six. So they're very young and they are looking for for ways to socialize. That are different to the ones of all of the generation so again The promoted social media. Because that's their mobile natives. And they they do that. Also for fashion dates so for us will go a community. You see that the fact that the pope is social platform social marketplace. It has basically make the business to grow faster and getting Organic Way. And then secondly the second thing that our audience wants is to make money and so we are able to provide a platform that makes it very easy for them to sell those items and to make money as a result so as a consequence you you have very vibrant community are very engaged users that are super passionate about fashion and they are actually in the day making secondhand cool which again contributes to making the resale platform. I mean the the research will go faster. And that's that's the has a slightly different beast as a luxury product. It's more it's an older consumer. Is it the same drivers the flight northing happy? You remembered all the statistics because keeps forgetting them but to add to that. I think there's one or two points which are allowing us as a business to thrive. I think the first one is that that from the outside the fashion industry in some sort of way mirrors. What's happening in society? Where you know. The rich get richer and the luxury players are chasing them up. The stairs might use the example of being also consultant in the past. Having to buy suits choice back then was buying Hugo boss suits. I'm German so that's what I have to wear as a German and buying food which I couldn't afford the time in at the time is any suit would cost like eight hundred fifty euros nine euros now. Sued cost two thousand five hundred euros and on the bottom end. You know you have the parts of side which are struggling and fast fashion becoming cheaper and cheaper to to serve those needs and you have this forgotten middle class. You know which in the past could afford I suit is bag a nice night in a in a nice hotel but a lot of that has become out of reach because the industry defines itself by becoming more and more exclusive and you know being some sort of a hard to reach and so I think the opportunity frosties is absolutely to defend ourselves and make a lot of these beautiful products accessible in some sort of way in finding the right owner for the right product and the right time in their life cycle. So I think that's two points and I'm sure you'll both happily talk about how great this market is and the opportunities there for the next fifteen minutes. Let's talk a little bit about the challenges as well on the luxury side. Everyone will be aware of the criticisms leveled against the Rio recently in terms of the problems with their authentication problem. Max with Vesti Eras. Call capacitor in the space. How damaging are those allegations the credibility of the entire luxury resale market? And how big a challenge is authentication. You know I'm I'm not going to hide behind. This was my competitor. You know I think you will find the same criticism against this year am out there. I think we do a lot to improve every single day and you know we face our challenges being fast growing company to to scale of every process that we make as much as we can so so. We're not perfect. We try to perfect. We try to improve every day. I think the the two three things to that I really want to point out is Frost at our cores is the trust in our community and the trust that community gifts to each other and towards us and if things in that in these processes breakdown You know we really see all as a platform to step in and say okay something wrong. We'll take care of it in. The consumers need to reach out to us and we will fix it and we tried to learn from every one of these mistakes every single time they happen and I think the second one is that we have this community. We have people we trust. These people have a history on us and I think it's our job as a platform in the future to make that history much more transparent and and you know bring people together and but let's not distract from the things that we do well. I think it's very easy for for new business models like ours who go like the speed that we do to point out the small things which go wrong you know. I would love people to really focus on on the good we bring. I think we are fundamentally at Harvard business. Which does something about sustainability and circularity? And that's a lot more than you know. Trucking in forty trees to fashion show in saying

I think probably the most important part of this race is a small field and I don't think they going to go fast Yale. Dash I think laid and he is where I think the rise can be one lost because I think maybe we can see at so. I just don't think horses and exceedances even Castle Vecchio had that early Gates Right Speight close enough and you in a slower on rice doesn't matter if you're not too far off them but when you go to host like bb Wack in front of you lost dot ran twenty to one eleven into lost four hundred loss two hundred and they couldn't catch him. I think this is gonNA sit up exactly locked at Yale Dash. Hey can laden. He's going to give a massive run as well as to. I think you're going to clear out and I just think the widest rice is going to be run. It sits up perfectly for BBC wacky got back to his best on the dry track. I think these treacle suit horses on Spe Kobe on with the Godolphin Blue Army to win the Golden R-ariz. Bv Wack Very Good Josie. Do you agree that's good as before no because he writes divert different pressure here. There's any tools is in this race that have won seven for the loans. That's Prince foul was it was terrible. I up and of course Kosovac and I want to talk about Kaseke. I because he's had an unusual preparation Russian coming into this race. He ran over fifteen hundred meters. I up with fifty eight. He got back on a die way. You couldn't really might grand and when he indeed when you go to the outside after being ridden CODA gain a flu and he showed the acceleration that I wanted to see adjust picked on these running saw the last fifty so he comes back an extra hundred meters fights while while like castell Vicki I was because this is a small field josie spike speed dash guy fold and dictate terms terms BIVOUAC with full. Don't pass each go forward and put some pressure on these horses in existence needs to come across us. Don't passage BIVOUAC and sit on those horses. This is a group one. These more pressure is tactical in this small field guy back and Watch Castle Vecchio when he sat when he drew and saw it and he set up on the speed when he when he's group one champagne. Hey Ken seek close. You don't have to draw net where he has to come back in Roy Court. He's only going to be three pays back a set. Nas and close when he want. He's a group one and he saw has run out of the fourteen hundred when he was thirty at to go back in a massive run once again and he has the acceleration tuna foot to seat off these pressure in a group one race ace be close enough this time and pick them apart light dropping back set whites drop from the fifty eight to sit whites a seats closer. He's drone bed up oil blocking and I can't believe the price that we're going to get castaway.

"Of Venezuela has become a physical standoff and a deadly one at that yesterday played out at the Colombian border as Venezuelan troops while the president Madero prevented aid from coming in the self-declared president one Guido had declared sun Saturday that the deadline forgetting a large backlog of aid into the country. Was there Gwyther supporter does CNN that? At least five people were killed in the clashes that ensued between the two sides two hundred eighty five people were injured, according to the Colombian Foreign ministry when Venezuelan when Venezuela fired tear gas and rubber bullets at protesters as for the US response secretary of state might bump bail.

Thank you for it for this opportunity on you. Just let me tell you the follow him. I have seen human rights abuses since this regime took power particularly since two thousand fourteen but just today was a tragedy was Kramer again humanity. What we saw yesterday was a regime killing innocent people trying to bring food and medicine to our country. So therefore motto is not only creating the humanitarian crisis in Venezuela is also blocking dissolution of the humanitarian crisis in Venezuela. And that's has to be rejected by then tire international community. But let me understand whether it is getting through how much is getting through. And again, why is it not getting through in Brazil from Brazil, but from Columbia? As you know. I mean, yesterday three trucks rich our territory and Venezuela on all of them were burnt by the regime, so unfortunately, the food medicine couldn't rich the people that need that food and medicine on on why we decided just with stop the humanitarian aid the humanitarian aid was remaining, Brazil and Colombia. And then we need to discuss with the Colombian on Brazilian authorities. The path to come in the next day. So we will preserve that humanitarian aid, and then we will work together. And when that humanitarian they will enter into our country, your boss one Guido has called on the army to get on the right side of history. So far the army has not listened to him. It is still backing Madero. What would it take to get the army to flip? Well, we need to keep the pressure in different levels under streets using our national assembly as the only elected into tune in Venezuela and also put under pressure from the international community. I yesterday something happened, which is was very relevant sixty member from different forces of the military institution decided to support. Why though on many of them some of them as spoke to say in that inside of the military institution. Dureza a Hugh discontent against their regime, and that will be expressed soon. So we need to increase the level of pressure. And to force the military force to back what we want to achieve which is the recovery of our democracy, president Maduro routinely in every rally he danced assaults yesterday. He says Guido is backed by Trump is Trump's puppet, you guys the Venezuelan people should should stay with me. He said this. That salsa dance. How much is that working? In other words, how is it effective is it from adore to tell people it's the Americans who want Guido, and we are preserving Venezuelan nationalism. I mean, the only pop it is immoral. Here's a Cuban poppet. That's the reality. This is Venezuela movement led by the people of Venezuela under the leadership of one why as an interim president they are putting their life at risk as you saw yesterday in order to recover our democracy on what we have seen ISA fight between democracy and dictatorship on the free world is supporting our movement on we need to see it in that way. This is not a problem of ideology. This is not a problem of nationality. This is again, a fight between democracy, undefeateed, or sheep. And this is a clear Venezuela movement led by Venezuelan with a clear agenda site by Venezuelans, and what we are getting is the support of the international community, and I feel so proud to be Venezuelan onto Biella Tino because the cost of their moxie in these hemispheres is taking place in Venezuela due to the courage of the Venezuelans. Let me ask you finally briefly daughter. Trump says all options are on the table, implying that there is a military option that the United States could use. Do you welcome that kind of rhetoric or do you wanna make it clear that the United States should not use any military force in this in this issue? Again, this is another fight between the United States on the little regime. This fight between the free world against them alluded regime, and keep this in mind, we are dealing with a criminal state. They have been involved in drug trafficking, money laundering, human rights abuses, on of court linked to terrorist group, and we need to consider this inorder to elaborate, do you want to hear do you wanna start to villa? Terry options on the table. Do you think the United States military? We need to have all the auction. But under the principle of responsibility to protect which is approved by the u n we cannot allow that. Our Jim kills his own people. I'm.

"They've responded to one guidos coal that peaceful demonstration so far, but everybody is looking at the Venezuelan military. Everybody says it is up to the guys with the guns, and they all mostly guys to determine the course of this path that you've now embark. And on what what what more do you have from them? Have they given you any assurances are they seem to be sort of standing firm of four Madero at the moment. Well, we have said to them that we have a new commander in chief. They have to follow the order of Brazilian Dane during why though they have to follow the constitution. We need them to restore democracy. And we need them in order to conduct this as as moves threatened sation. So in my view, the majority of my military force are with us. They are just stopped by a small elite on the top of the military institution. But at the end of the day, they are Venezuelans there. They have family. They are suffering. The same thing that we are suffering as a as our people. So at the end of the day, in my view with this pressure that we are putting on the streets from our institution of the national assembly. I'm from the international community. I I hope they can just be the in the right side on support in what our constitution sess I know, you hope that. And so far we haven't seen any violent crackdown. But what? What more do you think you have to offer the Venezuelan military because as you rightly point out there is a layer of elite military at the top the most senior who have a lot of vested interest in being on my Douro side. They're engaged in massive sectors of the economy. They have all sorts of powers that they might not have in a normal. Democratic system is is your side is one Guido prepared to offer more than just a general amnesty. Is that is this? We do they have to be promised certain positions in parliament, you know, the way it's gone in Latin America as you've had transitional democracies. No, we understand that. I mean, the the military forces is a key actor in this transition, especially to conduct as move transition off. We want on we're open to discuss with them. You know, what they have in line? But at this moment in time, we have over as you said an amnesty law. We are not including here. A crime again humanity on we are just given this arm nasty to those who help us to restore democracy. And I think we can build that confidence among us in order to achieve for we won onto impose our again. Then certain way, I brought up the US record in Latin America, you know, it much better than I do. It's had a very checkered history for for more than one hundred years at your continent of of interventions and coups and counter coups and the rest, and of course, president of Madurai oh is playing that up. And he has said the following. He's issued his own sort of. Fiery sort of backlash to President Trump. Here's what he said just yesterday. No, pardon me, home. Vietnam got up we will allow Vietnam and not when Erica the US intense to intervene against us. They will get the at Phnom worse than they could've imagined in your country has the largest oil reserves in the entire world and those who lead in the United States when it get their hands on our own just like they did in Iraq and in Libya. No our oil belongs to us. You know, Mr. Vecchio, it is very interesting. He points up Iraqi points up Libya, I mean to really highly controversial interventions on by the United States. I mean, do you think he'll he'll rally support by again, blaming the US and sort of doing that kind of thing that he's been doing for a while? Now. You know, in my view, he's trying to sell that to the rest of the world saying that this is a fight between the regime, and they United States, and is not that way. As I said before this is vibe between the democratic world against the dictatorship. We have the most important not in American countries with us, we have the United States, and we have also the European Union.

And here is Jeff Zell Jeff good afternoon. How you doing? I'm doing just great. The falcons were doing great until last week. Yes, they are really Dr Jekyll mister high team. Let's say this. This is an elimination game. Let's face that whoever goes before and six is Al Dallas is not one two in a row this year last week. They got their first road win. Now, we're talking about the jecklin high chain. Yes, the Jones our Dr Jekyll against the NFC. They play with precision like doctor there too and one against the NFC south there too and one against the NFC east, in fact, if they win today that means you're Rian wanted to see NFC, but you know, what they're Mr Hyde and all the worst impulses come out against the AFC. Oh and three they lost at home to the Bengals. And they lost on the road to the Browns. That game was the Browns. Biggest. Since two thousand fifteen niche ran all over them. He hawked pass all over them. Twenty carries one hundred seventy six yards and a touchdown. Three catches thirty three. Touchdown. You better bet reg, it's going to be as equal Elliott left Ezekiel Elliott, right? Ezekiel Elliott up the middle Ezekiel up down everywhere. That's what they're going to do today. Now, there's no Dion Jones, even though he's off. I are. He's still an active talk is get Matt Ryan back. You will kick Georgia to Vecchio was great in his absence. And remember the Cowboys do not have Sean Lee. But remember last year? The south is the Cowboys played at Mercedes-Benz at the time time of year and the falcons really turned it around in that game. I was getting lost. Devante freeman. They had a great game. Cowboy started with a very impressive scoring drive in the falcon shut him down after that. Yeah. They won twenty seven seven last year. And obviously that was a springboard in the second half. Again, both teams no margin for error. Here. You talked about Ezekiel Elliott coming off a one hundred fifty yard rushing day in a touchdown. But Amari Cooper has certainly giving them another guy to balance things out as much as you said, they might focus on Zeki will Elliott Amari Cooper in this one, you know, going up against another former Alabama receiver Julio Jones how much of a spark do you think there is Cooper in his new home? Well, obviously with land is secondary. It's always a potential for someone to have a career game. Let's face it. I mean, both safeties are out Ricardo Allen this out. And we know that the falcons aren't near as good without their quarterback on defense Kiana dealers out. They don't have the Jones playing in the middle. True flop and offered have really had a lot of really bad games. These two guys with the top two picks a couple of years ago. True funding Dont'a Pro Bowl level last year. He got hurt. He just hasn't been. In the same coming back. I mean, you're right. I think they will try to establish the runs. Remember the falcons really shutdown Barclay with the giants and they've shut down Adrian Peterson with the Redskins. But then shut came back and just kill them. The running back out of the back sealed every week has career days against the falcons. And so we went to secondary going Amari Cooper. We'll be something the Cowboys will do. So they're going to have to weapons and how they mix it up. And what they can do is obviously like it did against the Redskins. They look great. Now, we got fourteen points on the roads with team that six and three they play like did against the Browns. They're gonna lose back to back road games though for the Cowboys coming off the emotional win last week over Philadelphia. You know, how do they respond? Well, you know, you always wonder about that. Because you so, you know, hey, things are pros. They both four and five. This is a do or die elimination game. They gotta get up. But on the other hand as you said they had this emotional win against division rival the eagles human beings. And look there's a lot of controversy in Atlanta. This week. I don't know if nationally how are you guys are on it. Let's laundry Campbell came out and said he's been new quarterback on defense with a Ricardo Allen out. And he said, hey, I think a lot of guys didn't give full effort because they took the Browns for granted that it's just a talking point this week. And I I give kudos for that. 'cause Atlanta it's a sports town where people can get away with not giving their all. And the sports media is very very meek doesn't do anything not like New York or Boston or San Francisco or Detroit or Chicago, really anywhere. And he came on he said and he didn't back down. And it was clear that there were guys that did not put forth the kind of effort that they should've had out there. They were not up to the game say how could they not be up for a game? It was an elimination type of game when you're four and four, but they weren't up for it. So you can never guess what's in the heart. If somebody remembers way back when the falcons were were three hundred five hundred or I said to you. Hey, the road back when the two home games. Against you know, at what gets the giants and the other game against the buccaneers. Then split on the row. Now, you would've said if they do that we're happy with that. But then you saw the play great against the Redskins. So you're now expecting more and they just completely lay in Eric against the Browns. So now, you're disappointed, but it'd been backwards. They lost a close game to the Redskins. And then beat the Browns you'd say, okay. They're on their target. If they got to win this game to get five five and they have New Orleans on the road on a Thursday. They have one more loss left. You can't expect to get in any worse than ten and six. So they play Thursday on the road that should be one game where they say we might not win this game. One more thing. Obviously Matt Bryant you said he's back today. Giorgio tobacco Vecchio is an active with Brian's age, despite the fact that how good he's been do. They view Vecchio as the successor. You know, I really don't think. So they look at it that way because if they did they might have just kept Vecchio going. I mean, the thing is how do you hide a second kicker. Do you keep the second kick or you don't do it in a fantasy young? You don't do it in the NFL either. So what what's going to happen? I mean, he has looked great right? You don't feel any sense of diminishing returns when you have to Vecchio in there. But the reality is not Bryant's one of the greatest kickers in the history of this league. He's been unbelievable falcons. They've got him under contract. They're paying him. Certainly think of Matt pliant can't go they're gonna wanna use Vecchio. That's why I think they didn't just cut tobacco. They've they've got a kick on me and acted. How often do you see that? With a backup kicker stays on the inactive list because they know he'd be snatched up, but certainly Bryant can't go. Yeah. You go to Vecchio, but the Matt Bryant, you know, as long as she's able to get out there and kick he hasn't missed a field goal this year. Well, he helps being indoors Jeff. We'll touch base after kickoff. Thanks for checking. Thank you. Bye. Jeff Zell in Atlanta Cowboys and falcons getting ready to go. Also, another half hour away, the buccaneers and the giants the G men looking for back to back wins and Mike Mancuso checks in from MetLife stadium. Mike good afternoon and high rich, I think you and I are ready to go and give good effort. Right. I hope so. If not we might not be back. Anyway, just you know, weatherwise just to kick kick it off with this rich. It's, you know, low forties not much wind at this point. If it was a four o'clock game. It would be different. So conditions are pretty good for this game between the giants and Tampa Bay. I would think so and a lot to get to in this one the giants coming off the win in San Francisco a much needed one. But two franchises really struggling right now and desperate and you have a big injuries Levada David out today for the buccaneers which may be opened up a little more than the passing game. Especially for the tight end in the giants. You would think, but at this point, you know, whether or not whoever's playing or not playing I'm looking forward to seeing Jason Pierre Paul go against his former team, but you look at the numbers in the nine games. Tampa Bay is given up thirty points plus in six of the games. So, you know, whoever they've been dressing whoever's missing this defense has. Not played. Well, he played well last week and losing to Washington sixteen to three but for the giants, and I I might be off by a point or two but whenever the giants offense onto LA. Manning is played against the team that on average allows thirty points a game. They seldom reach thirty points on the offensive event. Having said that I think the giants do have significant amount of confidence coming off that Monday night game with the last minute drive to to pull it out. Get them their second win. And I think they're really concentrating on trying to win a home game four at home. They haven't really been dominant home team since this building opened up in twenty ten. In fact, you have thirty four and thirty four so yes, I think that the bucks defense poses opportunities or presents opportunities for the giants. But you have to remember the giants and their offensive line which played decently last week away management sacked thirty two times. And that is a staggering number. Almost a staggering is the amount of turnovers. Tampa Bay has so. You know, who knows where this game goes as you mentioned the sax adding up and the offense of lion being what it is. And you also mentioned Jason Pierre Paul coming back to face his former team that was a big storyline throughout the week. It seemed it was a little animosity or a little tension between the two sides is the way it ended. He was just shipped off. And that was it goodbye. Thanks for everything. We'll see soon and here he is today. Yeah. And you know, don't let the door on the way out. But I I think though, he, you know, he JP did have a little fun with that, you know, talking about how much he respected Eli manning. And but that he was coming after. But he made it clear to heal. I was one of the guys that texted him, and they reached out after the trade and he's had a good year. I mean, you know, they'll wind them up all over the place. But I think that the giants, and they sold their have to really be prepared because I think AP's going to be really pumped leaving an impact on this game today. So I think the giants would be wise to watch out for him. And you know, what's interesting is you do your homework for the gaming easy with the bucks done on offense piling..

"We're back in the w o r sports zone with Pete McCarthy. Giants eagles tonight at MetLife stadium. Rob vecchio? No of s N Y on with us about ten minutes. Give what's happening out there at MetLife stadium. But it's big report on ESPN's website from Jordan Ron on the other day as far as you know, some of the the issues that talking about before with ally manning and in his stature within the organization, which has changed in whether or not. He is losing the confidence of some players in the report Ron on says several giants players expressed frustration with Mannix performance. And it's now exactly breaking news. After seeing how Odell Beckham junior reacted when asked if he li- is a problem for this team and said, I don't know and start talking about allies lack of mobility in that interview that aired this weekend, and the performance, you know, clearly has been there and to some degree. It's almost like the best thing to happen to ally. Was the fact that he was benched as unceremoniously as he was last year by Ben mcadoo, and because of that that was basically the end for mcadoo the way he handled it the way it went down to end allies consecutive game streak and guy that meant so much to the franchise. To go to Gino Smith in that spot rather than say Davis Webb and say, hey, we're looking in the future, we've got to find out about this kid, and that's not the way that they handled it, you know, those things all doomed Ben mcadoo, but then the swell of support for Eli. And he lies been picked apart by giants fans by others over the years. But the majority of giants fans know this is a guy who brought a couple of rings. And they appreciate what Manning's meant to that franchise. And they're kinda they're usually quiet when allies getting picked apart. But everybody spoke out last year when Eli was benched and. You got a sense of that kind of won that battle in some ways. And it's not as if he even had to fight it himself. But the people made the decision to put him on the bench, Ben mcadoo, Jerry Reese, they were gone and Dave gentlemen comes in. And I'm sure when the giants were interviewing candidates, one of those first questions was what what do you think of Eli and Gettleman said, apparently, we can win with them because that's exactly the kind of path that he has taken with this franchise since he took over and the giants ownership wanted to hear that's the easier route to allow ally to play it out until he's not good anymore to not go out and draft his replacement and have what might be an awkward season and an uncomfortable. And guess what? It's always going to be an uncomfortable. And for the great players not many get to walk away. Like, John Elway or Peyton Manning. Holding the Lombardi trophy and even for Peyton even though we went out as a champion. He was hardly the quarterback that he had been previously and everybody knew it that team won based on its defense. So you know, it's gonna be a rough one way or the other. It's going to have some awkward moments. But this is what? Is also dangerous for teams is you have the guy means so much to the franchise. Who's one for you? You wanna do right by who you want to be able to bring back in the future, and you know, have Detroit out for the halftime show. And now wave everybody when you're retiring is number honoring the championships or whatever it is. But you don't want it to come at the expense of your future. And that's where the giants are right now. They don't even have a future quarterback on that roster that they can go to if this season if they end up let's say one in seven and their chances of making the playoffs are nil. It's not a guy to go to it's going to be ride or die with ally for this whole season now. So again, I think tonight is just YouTube for him. I think he's got to prove it to the fan base to the league to teammates. They he could still play at the high level that we've seen him play at in the past. And this is basically a playoff game for the giants. That's when he lies played at his best. Today is the kind of night, the you need one of those performances from him, and you know, as much as last week on Sunday all the eyes were on Odell Beckham after the the interviewee gave the ESPN tonight. I think it's much more about the quarterback. And you know, can he still rise to the occasion and provide a moment and provide a victory? Really? That's what you're looking for against these Philadelphia Eagles and the eagles having a rough goal. But of course now their quarterback Carson Wentz. Coming off the serious knee surgery towards ACL last year. He hasn't been able to get things moving the same way. A lot of talk about a Super Bowl hangover there in Philadelphia. And who knows exactly how that transpires if they could suddenly just kick it into gear, but the eagles have some issues. Yeah. They relied on their run game. A lot last year. Now J John is done for the season lane Johnson's expected to miss tonight scam the outstanding right tackle for the Philadelphia. Eagles is such a big part of that run game. So, you know with the eagles are ripe to be had. And I it's always difficult on a Thursday night to go on the road and pick up a win. So the giants have some things to their advantage tonight. And you know, they got to be able to utilize that in order to keep their seasons alive. And that's really what's on the line for the giants here. Rob rob vacuum. S N Y with us coming up. Give us. So the lace what's happening game day here for big blue. And then we'll get into the match in general manager hunt. And we could talk some baseball coming up in the seven o'clock hour, and we'll take some.
