"Nellie been bumping in the speakers all night long. I love that. As a born and bred ST Louis and Tyler full Jim Courtney Cronin, whose grandmother just hit the century mark is also from ST Louis. So you know how we do it in the loo. So I bet Grandma Bruce is like in the Nelly and her ears as she listens to her favorite granddaughter on ESPN radio tonight. Big fan of the ST Lunatics. Big, big fan, So she was like she was doing the backwards Murphy Lee Jersey thing Like, You know, I don't know. A couple years ago, she helped invent that trend. Shoot is that we're Nellie got the band aid under his eye as well. Roll a bruise with the grill and everything absolutely ESPN radio has presented by our good friends at progressive Insurance. All guests appear via the Goodyear Hotline. You can call someone Triple eight, say ESPN. That's 18887293776 share your thoughts on what we have discussed earlier. We were on the gridiron talking in the NFL about Season win totals that have come out in Vegas on We touched on some of the numbers that jumped out to us from specific teams. Of course, Courtney touched on the Vikings as well Team she covers and knows better than anyone else. Bill Bella checking the Patriots coming off a disappointing 2020 season. That was affected by covert. Remember Cam Newton, Their starting quarterback, came down with it and had to miss a few games and then said he was never really quite right after that. Well, he's back. For the Pats. So, too, are Dont'a Hightower, who opted out middle linebacker after last season. They spent all that money at the beginning of free agency just handing out Robert Kraft money all over the place. There went total seizures. William Hill said it nine. Whether you care or not, I am Taking the over there. I think Bill Belichick is ready for a bounce back with more normal circumstances for his team, whether it's Cam Newton playing quarterback or someone else playing quarterback, Maybe they go that way via the draft. Courtney and Bill Bella Ceku. Never holds his cards close to his vest. Had this to say about the potential of the Pats moving around in the 2021 NFL draft to maybe find a QB. You know, 15. I think we could eliminate a few players that won't be a 15. And then you could look at a couple scenarios and say, Well, you know, these three players there with when we take if he's sober, three different players were there. Which one would you take? You know, you go through that exercise and and talk about that. Would say normally, something will happen, and there could very well be a player there that either you don't expect to be there. Or maybe he is a couple of spots and maybe a 12 13 he still on the board, and you really thought that he'd be gone in the top 67 picks, you know, Then the question comes, Do you move up and try to get that player that's falling a little bit. Bill Bella, check head coach of the New England Patriots, sharing his thoughts rather candidly on the process of the NFL draft. We know as he said, they're the Patriots picked 15 in Round one for the 2021 NFL draft. They also have, you know a couple fourth round picks to play with some Ah, couple six round 3/4 round picks I should say to play with so maybe they can move up and down in the draft. Courtney. Do you have any thoughts on whether or not the Patriot should be aggressive? Should a QB fall? You know past the first eight selections, you know where they could maybe trade up a few spots, Or do you think their intent to go into the season with Cam Newton in another full off season on maybe, you know, not having to deal with covert as their starting QB. I think they have a chance to compete again in the NFC East. So I listened back to that sound. Um, e remember hearing that on Friday and I was like, Oh, boy, we got something here like what it Bala checks say, there's a lot of words there in 41 42 seconds. What did those words actually mean? And he did this thing I like to call the Dak Prescott where it's like, man, like shaking her head like, Yeah, Yeah, absolutely. You listen back, and it's like all vanilla stuff that actually doesn't tip your hand one way or the other. But if there is the exact learn that technique, I mean, if there is anything that was revealed from what Bill said in that Right that we just played. Um, this is a team that managed 12 passing touchdowns and 14 interceptions last season, where Cam was getting benched in games quite a bit. It's you know, Bill Belichick was always staying steadfast. He's our quarterback. We're gonna start him next week. But those are those are the facts. The only thing that Bill Belichick potentially revealed there Is that if New England sees a quarterback it feels he feels is a franchise player. They're not going to be, has it to move up and go get him And so where they're at right now? I believe 15, right? They're going to have an opportunity to trade up into the top 10. With the Lions. Maybe maybe it's Carolina date. Maybe it's Dallas at nine. All three of those teams are candidates to move down so If you stay at 15, do you hedge your bets that potentially you want to get Mack Jones? Do you even want Max Jones? Like I'm in the camp now, like I've been convinced as I've gone through silly season the last couple weeks and realizing You know, Mac Jones at three. To me feels like it's not gonna happen. But if Justin Fields is your guy if that's the guy that you think If we're thinking that it's you know, in in reality, if it is Charlie Lawrence, Zack Wilson, Trey Lance going off the board 123. If you think that Justin Fields is your guy, you probably have to trade up into the top 10 to go get him and that will affect the draft order to create this domino effect, But that's the on leasing. I think we can take away from what Bill Bala checks said. From That bite because other than that, I don't think that you roll the dice with Cam, New and solely Cam Newton again in the 2021 season like, Yeah, they went crazy and spent a lot of money in free agency on a lot of different positions. But they kept Cam and I don't know if they see it as he's healthy. It's a different like you mentioned. It's not the covert year. It's not all those things. We've got people back from opt outs. What have you I still think that they will address the quarterback situation. The position. In April or in, you know, two weeks from now, less than that, but It has to be somebody that Bella check sees is like a franchise player. Otherwise, they're not going to trade up from 15 just kind of playing out the exercise. We know Lawrence is off the board at one. We know Zack Wilson is off the board, too. And I'm assuming either Trey Lancer Justin Fields is going to be the third overall pick and then Atlanta could they Hola, Cuba. His name. It's possible. Yeah, but I think it's kind of impossible. But yeah, probably. It seems like they're, you know, at least gonna ride the Matt Ryan train for one or two more years. Then you have Carolina, Okay? They did authorize the fifth year of Sam Darnell's contract, so there's a commitment there, and they gave up a lot to get him, so I'm not so sure they're going to use that pick on a quarterback, or I think they're more likely to try and upgrade the talent around Sam Donald Denver. That's a team that could certainly take a quarterback. I think it all just depends on who falls. I don't know if one of those cubes That Belichick covets will fall to those spots that makes it feasible to trade up if he addresses the QB situation, Courtney I think is gonna come in rounds two or three with one of those more developmental prospects like a Kellen Mon. Or Davis Mills. Still to come here on Game night with powerful German Courtney Cronin. Stud spreading lose. The Knicks have won six in a row, you'll see in the game night on ESPN Radio and the ESPN. We're back on Monday and will be just one day from.

"80 and T. The Indians beat the Reds today. 63. Cincinnati took the serious two games to one. The Reds have tomorrow off then three home games against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. All right, I've given the stats I've given the scouting reports. I have even cited the Bible in making my case for team Sewell. Now It's time for you to weigh in and we start in Springdale with Tim. Tim. Welcome to 700 wlw. Go ahead, Dan. It's been a pleasure listening to you Broadcast games. I enjoy you tremendously. I think you're probably the second best other than Marty Brennaman. Tim. Thank you. I appreciate your you're very good. But the one thing I want to say is I really like to see him take in a soul. Uh, I mean, I wouldn't be unhappy with Tamar Chase, but I'd rather see him get that offensive linemen because I'm gonna tell you right now, when I've seen Burrow playing against Philadelphia and linebacker hit him. And took him down. I thought for sure he broke his neck. Malik Jackson almost took his head off. I was like, Oh, my God. If you're gonna live, Tim, how many times in the 9.5 games The Joe played with the 70 times roughly 70 times that he got hit. Did you cringe and thank Holy cow. Is he going to get up this time? I don't want to see that again. I don't either. I don't need her. And I'm gonna say something else about the Bangles, their management and what they do with her player personnel. I just don't get it. I think they had a good running back and Giovanni Bernard. I think they had Ah, West Welker type of receiver and the kid that they let go. The white white kids. What was his name? We take your thinking of Alex Erickson. Yeah. Alex Erickson. They didn't use him right? They could have been another West Walker and I just don't think they adapted this something that ourselves to him. Don't think Alex Erickson. Was it the West Welker level. I think he was a solid player. But Wes Welker was a perennial Pro bowl or in his heyday. Alex Erickson was never going to be a Pro Bowl caliber player. Although You know, I thought he was good in the role that he played. All right. Well, I appreciate the Dan. Thanks, Tim. Thanks for calling in. Let's check in with Avery next. Hello, Avery. Welcome to the show. Dad. How you doing, buddy? I am great. How are you? I'm doing good, So I just gotta pay a small picture. I I used to be in the front office with Minnesota Vikings from 96 in 2000 and then went to the Chicago Bears. I was director of corporate sales, but I would go in your diet job that you just painted on soul. I I wasn't in that vein. You know, I'm thinking, okay, Grab a receiver in the combination, but the way you just paint it is absolutely true that I I recommend that you forward it. Not to the GM of the of the Bangles in all honesty, not not to promote it, but they should hear it in the way that you wrote it. It obviously took you some time. And you wrote it Super well, but There's a big difference between good and great. And I don't think anyone if they go back and try and want to see burrow go down again and and have that this is an opportunity to put somebody on the line of control him, but that from happening on occasion, you know, I'm just glad that you used the term diatribe. You just described my attempt to convince people to join team Sewell. I guess that's probably appropriate. I think it was a diatribe. It was solid man. I mean, I just the way that you put it, you know, with You know the form of the teams that went to the Super Bowl right with Eun Joo's on the line. If you look at some of the great teams, even the team that I had, and I was with 98 with the purple. I mean, we went down that line with Susie and you know Christy and Korey Stringer out of Ohio State, a path and you know, just some really great players. So They got a chance to do something great In this draft, you could pick up a couple light out down the road you want. That's the thing you know, People are saying it's a deep offensive line draft, and maybe that's true. But as I said, in my diatribe, I want the best offensive lineman and there will be wide receivers and round two and three. I've looked at them. I know the guys that are projected to go in the second round, arm or slot guys. For the most part that outside guys, but somebody's going to be there. Whether it's terrorists Marshall from L s u or Elijah more Diame EBrown, somebody that can provide that speed element will be there with the sixth pick of the second round. Right on my man. So listen, I don't know what the word die inside me. But you can coin it put in quality. It's yours. All right. Every thanks for calling in. I really appreciate it. Keep up the good work, buddy.

"That timing and rhythm thrower as well. I think that's what you get with black jokes. Trevor Laurence Justin Fields. Zach Wilson. Trey Lance, Um In terms of 45 quarterbacks you could see going in the top 10. Is there another one out there like we spent so much time on these guys. They're another one. That could be not necessarily a late round steel with someone. We're not talking enough about. I think it's Davis militant Stanford. You know former five star recruit because the pockets or but he's got high level traits in terms of arms. I think control of anticipation and touch you can drive the ball all three levels of the field. Doesn't have a ton of college experience. Which again you look the traits the size in the pockets. Ability of throw from the pocket in a pro office. What he you know what he played with in terms of schematics, a Stanford I think it's got to be Davis Milk. I don't know where Davis Mills goes. I think it's someday probably on Day two, but I think he could be that next quarterback off the board after Top five So we're talking a lot about quarterbacks. We know last year that there was some big time prospects at wide receiver Justin Jefferson, who changed with the Minnesota Vikings were able to do this draft has some great wide receiver prospects as well. Jabbar Chase Devante Smith. What are the chances A year from now? We look back at this draft and say, You know what? Maybe there was a receiver, someone at another position. Had the biggest impact within the top 10 of the players who were picked If it's not a receiver. They could be receiver. Anyone else any non quarterback? One of the chances of that, OK, I would say Project's intent. University of Alabama Just because look, every defense in the NFL wants to play man comes and even the zone heavy defense is right. Teams to fight covered three. Of course you know 32 to 6 inside the 10 year old playmate in coverage Gotta have the guys to do it. And Sudan has. He's a prototype of the position in terms of press man ability, 6 to 2 away. Explosive traits has recovery speed down the field has a short every speed to close in the football, the number one thing with him. I'm coaching the secondary guy. I'm looking for that sense of urgency with my defensive backs and you get that with certain the door. You set the edge in the run game. Have that physical place down those competitive traits. That's what I want to build a secretary. You see, consistent on this tape is very well coached out to understand that the University of Alabama he's got to play outside and bump inside the slop. ESPN NFL draft expert Matt Bowen. This is the smoke screen narrative season, right where it's okay. Here. I read this. I hear this. I'm going to report this now. We need to investigate this. What kind of red flags? I guess as someone who covers this When you hear something, it makes alarm bells go off and doesn't take multiple reports for you to kind of take things seriously. How would you just assess what this week and what this time of year is? Um, I think you have to be very cautious this time of year already believe that very cautious. What you hear who you talk to, and understand that your evaluation shouldn't change very much at this point, the year you've been studying these players A long time and the way I do it is once the NFL seasons over. We won two Super Bowls over that is my entire focus is on the draft. And my reports that I write, for example, the quarterbacks that I wrote him back in February. Not gonna change, not because I based most my, my stuff off tape study who was all that on tape study? And I can violate two player based on that tape stuff. Just the outside noise. You hear? I think at this time that you have to be very cautious with that. Because of where the information's coming coming from, and the information is directed towards you have to be very careful in that. Not adjust your grades and your report. Matt Bowen joining us one last thing Is there a player out there or some Narrative or evaluation that you disagree with the most that you see. Disagree with the most. Um, I would. I would go back to Justin Fields, okay? And like I mentioned earlier, guys about the structure of their offense is a lot of times that Justin feels it may look like He's holding on the ball too long waiting. First primary read the show. Okay, again. I think that's a product of the offense at times doesn't mean it's 100%. But it's a product of the office at times didn't understand the scheme You're looking at I made this mistake last year, okay? Justin her, but we understand of outstanding rookie season Justin Herbert head and there was concerns on his tape that organ A lot of that was the product of the system. There was a college spread system. You have to bet in the trades, right? You have to bet on those traits. That's what l A did. Look, what l A did with those traits did put Justin Herbert says his on town his moment ability to build to be scheme does the thrower. An NFL structured offense, and we saw what happened. That's how I look at. Justin feels I did a piece for ESPN last week we had do pro cops. My pro con from Justin Fields was Justin Herb. Because of the physical tools that's right and projecting that Ford in the scheme, Denna fell passing offense. So when I hear that Justin Fields doesn't get the ball out on time, I don't necessarily agree with that. ESPN NFL draft expert Matt Bowen. Big week ahead Thanks for sharing your time with this man appreciate the insight..

Philadelphia Eagles sign linebacker Eric Wilson

"Eagles have made some news over the last couple of days that we should pass along. The birds have made a couple of free agent signings Over the last couple of days and will run those down for you here. You can tell. It's a totally new eagles regime by the way when they go out and prioritize adding a linebacker in free agency although the eljay fort fiasco tells us not to count our chickens before they're hatched. The eagles signed former vikings linebacker. Eric wilson to a one year deal this week worth up to three and a quarter million dollars. There is a connection to the eagles. Here with wilson a linebackers coach. Nick rally spent time as wilson's assistant position coach for the last three years in minnesota. So you know so much time when you're adding free agents who your trading for players. There's always some kind of coaching connection especially here with the eagles over the last few years and that continues to be the case. Now wilson turns just twenty years old in september so he's a younger player and became a full time starter for the vikings last year. How do you really solid season for them to record it. One hundred twenty two tackles eight passes defended three interceptions in one forced fumble clearly. He's the number one linebacker on the roster. Right now. he'll be atop the depth chart he'll be the guy starting at middle linebacker unless something totally unforeseen happens. And i'm still kind of trying to figure out how the eagles got their hands on them at this stage in the off season for it for as little as they did and considering the salary cap situation that they're in and we know that this is not a position. The eagles have prioritized a whole lot. In recent off seasons they did again. Like i mentioned a sign eljay for contract very early in the offseason. Two years ago when it seemed like their third free agent off the board and they gave him a lot of guaranteed money. And then jim schwartz never played them and they cut him in midseason in the baltimore. Ravens picked him up in a hurry and he played great for them in the second half of the two thousand nine hundred and season to the point where they signed him to a contract extension before the season was out and eljay ford would have been a very big help in the eagles on the eagles. Defense these last couple of years and so we're kind of. I don't think this is going to go that way Eric wilson has has has a little bit more to his resume than eljay ford did when the eagles picked him up

Snap of a finger on the one hand. This is the story of an individual trader. A twenty year icarus who finally flew too close to the sun on the other. It's a story of a market as a whole a market. That is made money. Extraordinarily cheap which normalized extreme risk especially in the form of leverage. Let's start with the man at the center of the story bill. Bill's career started under the tutelage of the legendary hedge fund manager julian robertson in one thousand nine hundred eighty julian robertson founded tiger management. One of the earliest hedge funds. Tigers run is the stuff of legends building from eight million in start up capital in nineteen eighty two over twenty two billion in the late nineteen ninety s when robertson unwound and shutdown the fund.

NFL owners approve 17-game regular season, 3 preseason games

"A 17 game to the NFL schedule is Official. The 40 Niners will play at the Bangles. The FC will get the extra home game this year. And next year, the NSC and etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. Not that it was unforeseen. But what do you think, anyway? We kind of knew it was the owners vote. I assume it was 32. Nothing unless Mike Brown abstained. I don't know how that guy ever had any Children. Maybe it was 31 old and one. I don't know. But he held Davis as well. That's why I only had one child. He abstained all the league votes. So we knew it was going to be the Bangles. So the 40 Niners this year will play the NFC North. So the Packers and Vikings air coming to Levi's in the 40 Niners are going to Chicago and Detroit. Eagles because of the common record will be the other. NFC team as well. That will be on the away schedule and they're planning a F C South, which means a trip to actually land is coming to us. Indianapolis's coming To us. And then on what else is happening there? Uh, Houston is coming to us as well. Um and then on the road, it's Tennessee and Jacksonville. And the 17th game is gonna be pretty kidney. Obviously, the three within your own division home in a way, like every year. We knew it was gonna be the Bangles and the way it works this year, they're just lining up. Conferences. So the A F C East is playing the NFC East E A. F. C North is playing the NFC West, and that's the 40 Niners and Bangles. They have C south, playing the NFC South E A. S E West is playing the NFC North.

NASA’s Perseverance rover lands on Mars

"Good morning, Scientists from Planet Earth will land another mission on Mars today. NASA calls the rover perseverance. NPR's science correspondent Joe Palka has been following this one. Good morning, Joe. Morning, Noel, Can we talk about the logistics of this? They have to get a hurtling projectile toe land safely on Mars. How is this done? Yeah. What's the big trick? It's going 12,000 MPH, and they have two landed it two MPH. No problem. Well, what happens is they're overs packed up into something called the Aero Shell, which hits the top of the atmosphere on Mars and Atmosphere slows the craft down and it's friction heats up. That's why there's a heat shield, but that does slow it down quite a bit. But then there's a giant. Parachute that slows it down further and then finally, there's something called the Sky Crane, which is a jet pack that flies over the landing site to the landing site, then lowers the rover down on a tether and then cuts the cord and flies away. But the interesting thing is, this is the same landing system that the last rover used called curiosity. But it's been made more up to date by the fact that it's got this smart landing system so that you can actually look for Ah, good place to land. If it doesn't like the first place it picks the confide to the next one. What is modern is all the computers and navigation systems are on this new rover. The design of the rocket engines on the sky Crane is actually 50 years old. Believe it or not, those engines all trace their way back to the Viking Landers. That's Joe Cassidy, He's executive director for space at Arrow Jet Rocket die in the company that makes the rocket engine. The Viking missions landed on Mars in the mid seventies, and Cassidy says the rocket designed depended on a special valve that made it possible to vary the Rockets thrust. Funny part is back in the seventies, We had a supplier that actually developed that forest with J. P L came back to us in the latter part of the first decade of the 21st century and said, We want you to do that again. That supplier was no longer in business. But luckily they were able to find an alternate supplier who would make the valve for them. Very luckily, what is perseverance looking for on Mars? Well, it's landing in a place called Jez zero Crater, which was they think a lake bed 3.5 or Lake 3.5 billion years ago, And the idea is there might might might have been microbes in the lake. So there'll be cameras on the rover that will study the appearance of rocks looking for things like stromatolites, which are structures left behind by mats of bacteria. They're also instruments on the rover that will measure the chemical and mineral composition of the rocks at the landing site, and Nina Lanza is a geologist at Los Alamos National Lab and the scientists on one of those instruments called super Camp. See, this is the kind of thing that a geologist needs right. We need both chemistry. What's in Iraq and mineralogy how it's arranged. So knowing those things tells a lot about the conditions under which the rock form then whether or not those conditions were conducive to life. I asked this excitedly. Could we be getting news soon, saying that there was life on Mars? Well, it's one of those news stories where people get very excited, but they will also say I'm from Missouri proof show me so that's actually the idea of this. They may see things that look like there might have been life there. But they say to confirm that they have to bring the rocks back to Earth. And in fact, that's what this mission is going to do. It's going to collect samples that a future mission will return to Earth. Okay. NPR Mars correspondent Joe Palka.

The hidden history found in your teeth

"And why don't you to think about the image that you see when i say. One word migrant pictured a crowded boat in rough waters people clinging to the top of a freight train or crossing desert wearing worn out shoes. This is what we see in the news cycle. Twenty four hours day after day story after story people who are desperate fleeing wars climate change fleeing poverty but in reality most people move from common reasons to get a good education to find a job to find members or to fall in love. And this is nothing. New archaeologists like me have been studying migration and finding that people for hundreds even thousands of years have been moving around the globe from europe's earliest farmers to vikings to pirates roman gladiators and even the nfl caveman and people like you and me. Mobility is one of the things that makes us human people move and we know this because of something that you brought with you here tonight you carry it with the many places to work to the gym to bed and even in the shower. It's not your cell phone and it's not any person your pockets it's you it's your body and your bones all two hundred and six them. I brought mine because your bones will tell the story of your life even a single two and we know that teeth. Tell us many things for your dentist. For example he or she can see if you floss or if like me really like candy and you might end up with some cavities. And if my dentist is here tonight will see you monday. And i've been very good but your teeth also tell you something about migration you take your tongue and run it along. Incisors these front teeth. The back of those will be flat. If you have european or african ancestry if you feel sort of scoop or shovel shape your ancestors may have been native american or migrated from asia. If we go inside the tooth so the pulp cavity we may be able to extract the dna. And see if your ancestors came from egypt or england or both but we're not interested as much in your family's migration history as yours and we're that's where we go to the tooth enamel what it's made out of to try and find out if a person moved and even when they moved and it's based on one simple idea that you are which eats all the minerals and elements in the food like calcium oxygen. Which is the h two sodium in. Salt can tell us something about your diet. So we know if you or white bread if you prefer pork chicken or if you really like seafood there other elements that. Tell us where that food came from. And that includes sulfur strontium oxygen and even lead. Which of course you don't want very much of but these tell us where the food comes from and that can tell us where you were when you you're eating and that is what archeologists us to identify ancient migration if we look inside the tooth enamel conc- for example in your first molar. This is the one that was forming along with your baby teeth. But it's only when you still have and that tells us where you were living as an infant if we look at wisdom tooth which is the last tooth the form. That enamel would have been mineralized before you hit your teenage years. So we know where you're living then if we look at your bones and in that pause you just formed new bone cells. That's telling us what you're eating and what you're doing just about the past decade of life so we can really track where people moved and we've looked at this for hundreds and thousands of individuals to identify migration in the past. So i'd like to introduce you to some ancient migrants. If we go back in time sixteen hundred years we can go to the city of coupon where the people lived in. What's honduras if we came around the year four hundred ad who might have walked into broad plazas under really hot tropical sun was shining onto bright red painted buildings altars and carved statues in front of them. If we'd come on the right day we might have seen. The inauguration of ruler can initiate kook mall roughly translated that means son faced first mccaw. The maya rulers had really great names bird jaguar. Dark lady great but what was really neat about yash. Kusumo is that he established a dynasty that lasted for more than four hundred years. And every depiction we have him. Show him in foreign clothing. This is what people weren't central mexico which was not in the maya region and actually hundreds of miles away so for a long time. Archaeologists thought that this was a foreign king but his teeth told a different story by sampling. His first smaller has wisdom tooth and bone. We found that he in fact probably came from somewhere in the maya region so he wasn't migrant but he made lived in multiple places before coming to colpon even though he dressed like he was a foreigner

He's responsible for utilizing the latest digital marketing strategies to enhance conversion outcomes. Luck also runs. Click truro platform to help digital marketers. Connect with jobs they love. I love the idea of that because there is much quake out there but it's not always loved doing so i love that idea lachlan. Welcome to the episode. Thank you very exotic jumping boom crite. Sorry laughlin has the company web flow. And we're gonna pull apart web flow from the outside from a market his point of view we look at what we love what we hate what we're curious about. We don't understand what we think to better and we're going to see if we can work basically web flow from the outside what marketing is doing it. Also a little bit about the that whole space about web design and non code and everything behind that and that movement so lachlan for those people playing along at high. Can you tell us a little bit about web. Fly before we dig into it. Yeah absolutely so. We're pretty ubiquitous right now in the tech industry. It's pretty much interrupting the whole no code. Move it on over the past couple of years and it really has been in the past twelve months that no codes taken. The wolves stolman essentially. What occurred is just tools that allow you to build products without having to actually see kurt itself. So it's almost like visual programming and this certainly being tools out there for years. Things like wordpress that it'd been able to do that full people but the tools a getting won't powerful these days or you can create user accounts and just like dynamic content across websites and being around for a very very long time. Actually it's been through many iterations. I think it was in two thousand and nine found. Start working on it. But the reason. I guess it's gotten so big is because the whole creator right now is booming especially throughout covert wherever almost starting to explore what it could be to build their own businesses and people without technical experience. More in pal emba build anything in the space of a couple of weeks and the other big reason is that the tackles better so you can scale things much better on no code these days much easier to design things with custody. Assess without even having to know how to write. Css and two boys strengths. That's what they specialize in the most. And the reason i chose web flows. Because i'm actually contracting for a company called bubble and they one of the other leaders in the no code base is actually one of our competitors is that i for years have worshipped his marketing strategy. I think what they're doing is absolutely fantastic. So i always take inspiration from one day doing and try to add a little fight onto it if bobble great so this space that i love when something like no code is invented because like you said it already existed my people already using. He said wordpress. Maybe they had weeks or squarespace. And you know he wasn't given a name and then marketers and advertising and branding type people were always brilliant at taking something and then it already existed to a certain degree and then creating a little definition around creating a movement was wet flow. Did you say they jumped onto the nike. Instead of position cells around that or would you think will instrumental of really pushing the whole non code movement hit by the found. That bubble actually didn't prefer or didn't like the cut because they thought it was like another blockchain kind of hardwood before using so they prefer visual program because that is descriptive. As to what it is way floor didn't coined the term. I think the community just started giving it that night because they wanted names for like who they would not software developers but there will so people who can build software so what you call them so they just started calling himself. No code is and where floor really saw about as an offer changes to kinda mold that identity within the industry and they started using that pretty commonly throughout debris raining. They'll using i know they have no code. Which is like yield conference the no code space which the first people to coin so yeah definitely been writing that way and trying to push that as much as they can now and even a problem. Now we're really starting to embrace the whole code movement and use that within content that we share. So let's let's get a little bit into that besides just heads completely around it so people who in one sense no code is in the fact that they they built a website on wakes card but actually the designer of code starts to feel to me like somebody who has an appreciation of code all the need for bespoke but doesn't actually code the base back end. Because when i look at web flood look at their interface. It's a bit more complex. It's not it's not week there is card. You can just go in there and you can adjust by the pixel you can change something from sixteen pixels. Seventeen pixels you can. Actually edit the actual definitions is not just drag and drop is that. Is that how carter defines themselves. It's it's more than just not cutting with no card. That's almost like a simple version. This is much more. It's a bit like being vegan. Not just about not eating animal products. It's about the movement of veganism. No code is basically the vegan so the coding world further point. Do they then shout about. I don't like vikings yes. Yes and yes absolutely on the avid note of myself. And the reason. I contract bob because i was using bubble for year and eventually ended up just out the founders and often producing more full them so i guess i fit quite nicely into the digital market out. My background in tech sought ups. I can read some strings of code. But i definitely can't write anything. Hdl's probably the furtherest. My knowledge goes to. But i certainly have an appreciation for it. I know how important it is and yet there is definitely staple learning cove to tools like web particularly bubble because bubble. You're actually writing logic. You just don't see the java script that you're writing it just visually for you. But it certainly does take quite a bit on the senate and the one of the reasons that i love web blow it so much and i'm happy to dive into the sun is just the amount of content created around education for even just like on boarding people to that product is phenomenal. I think that's one of the reasons why eighty so while you let's trump strains that so what i always do. My first love of marketing was seo. That's the first discipline i got gotten. So my depot position is eight sticker dominion and have a look and look at it and kind of guys. Sixty three thousand referring domains. Thirty five million back lanes but whatever that's worth but five hundred and ten thousand six hundred eighty seven organic monthly traffic. So i'm looking at. Nih risk worth one point six million dollars worth of sea traffic right so good start but to your point you know that half a million organic keywords. That comes from amazing content and that content that goes beyond sort of someone searching for no code web design till this is about understanding the pain points of a persona and giving first and then sort of building from matt can you. You've obviously looked more at the may what what do you feel like. They content strategy is for this particular persona so it wasn't a casa Previously in haas about the found is all web flow and when they initially started a business the actual personas that they created and it was two of them that they just laser focused on. That was all. They focused on building for and the main one was a an existing software. Developer knows how to write code. He knows how sorry they know. How to build custom websites or prox- but they just want a streamline that time so they might be a freelance that might have an agency and they can only just. I'd sell that time for money. And you know the time it takes to build a custom. Product is just much longer than it is to build it on web play with have existing templates or you can just drag and drop elements so that was one of the main problems that we're going to solve the thing you'll notice on that blog is suddenly post a low content around like the industry but then may educational content. Is things like a series where they actually educate those uses. All those personas on how to better themselves. So they've got like a blog series for building Agency oil building a website with good. Seo or even if you're building a costume e stole just how to build that still but how did you first customers how to build your attention with customers how to create a u x so that way you know your conversion rate increases so they really want that cost us to succeed and i think that's why we're succeed so

Because i had forgotten about it. When i was doing it was jerry. Bridge is all right. Yeah jerry. Bridges is an excellent resource and both is a book. And i found it as a audio trusting god out of all his books. I've read that. I've found great great comfort in that book.

Thirty-two NFL Awards

"Every week on this podcast given out. Nfl awards app. The week is over. This could be a bit ambitious but thirty two teams thirty two awards. Let's go we're gonna call this one the best six and ten team of all time award but the washington football team stepped up so now he renamed it already way to change the word on the fly in the moment with breaking news the best seven and nine team of all time award the washington football team now can we say that definitively it may be too early to say last year tampa atlanta both went seventy nine. Those teams didn't even make the playoffs so the early lean is that washington could be the great one of all time. But we don't know yet. Speaking of that game. The clockwork orange award goes to the new york giants because they had to watch i at one point. This season banned myself from nfc east games. I said i wouldn't watch any until the teams are over five hundred. I watch step drop sixty two instead of being super locked into washington philadelphia. And i don't feel like i miss much. I know there's a lot of controversy would get that. Maybe a little bit later but imagine having your eyeballs taped open like clockwork orange and being a member of the giants having to watch that game. Nate sub-field now. Look we can sit here and be upset about it but you could have gone seven nine and got into the playoffs. So how sorry. Can you really feel for the giants the skeletons on the zahara award. Yes some of these awards. We referenced. his some won't get boy when you do get a weird one. You're gonna go man. I get that all right. That award goes to the. Las vegas raiders. Because at the beginning it looked promising. Nice little boat trip trade. Some spices await were crashing into rocks. Not a big deal here. Some locals gathering on the beach here to help nope now. We're marching to our own death in africa so it was very pro gruden. Hey maybe this gruden guy knows what he's doing and then you're like wait. Does this actually suck again. The drought continues. The raiders have not won a playoff game. Since two thousand to the notre dame award that goes to the green bay packers great record high green. Bay's really good. They're thirteen three though the one seat but nobody outside of their own fan base is rooting for this team. Not only because of the history of hatred. Although i imagine there's way more anti notre dame stuff out there than it is anti green bay but no one trusts you. Yes you're thirteen and three but that's three. Nfc conference championship game losses in the six seasons. A couple down years. They've turned this thing around. They are the one seed. But everybody's kind of overt already before. It's even started the parent's weekend award that goes to the new orleans saints. You guys know the deal parents weekend. There's a dad he wants to stay out with you guys. And he's older he's a little beat up and you're like i don't know like we're going to go out. We can't say no. We respect him too much. It doesn't look great. Doesn't make a ton of sense on paper there's some bad stats in there. But you have to let them do it. You have to let them try and the thing is is you and your buddies like there's no way does this is going to end well. The iceman award that goes to the dallas cowboys man and dangerous. What is with this jolt. A don't let us get hot. This is insanity when this was part of the story lines throughout the cowboys broadcast. Yes you on three in a row. Cincinnati san francisco and philadelphia yay. Then you lost the giants at home. You came in eleventh in the nfc but if you were to get in look out. This is now. It's our time you were eleventh in your own conference dangerous. You had sixteen games to prove that you're only dangerous to your fan. Base is or perhaps the understanding of what the word danger beans the g. league award san francisco forty niners. They had twenty eight players. At one point on i r or another injury cova list which was most in the league. They use the most. I are slots. They lost the most games to injury in the nfl. And even with losing record my coach. kyle shanahan. i can't believe how competitive they were. All season law the dabble award. That goes to kirk cousins in the vikings bike. He's gonna win. Nah no one really cares are one in five star people already over this team so their disappointing season was so disappointing so early that it was just all of a sudden just completely off the radar even though they turn some things around there a bit in the middle of the season with dalvin cook but watching cousins dance reminded me of daboh announcing his tiktok account hickory vickery dot mouse ran up the clock coast.

"vikings" Discussed on Bedtime History: Inspirational Stories for Kids

"Earth and grasp with thatched roofs. Some of these long houses were up to two hundred and fifty feet long and large families lived them together for example. If you were viking you might live in the same house not only with your family. But with your cousins aunts and uncles and grandparents at night families gathered around a big fireplace called a hearth and told stories about their gods such as the leader vazza guard and his wife frigg their children were balder. Loki and thor loki was a trickster often as jokes went too far and he was punished for them. Four was the god of thunder and fought giants in the sky with his powerful hammer. Mueller when he fought these battles it caused lightning and thunder in the sky. Freya was the goddess of love beauty. More each god had their own story and adventures. The family shared from generation to generation. The vikings also sang danced. Play board games around the fire to get them through the long dark winters. During the warmer months the vikings farm the land intended sheep and other animals they also became very good sailors and navigators they learned how to follow the sun and stars and color of the ocean and movement of sea life to know their position in the ocean. There long ships were made of strong would and could sell deep oceans or shallow streams. They use the ocean to discover. New lands often sailed very far and wide to trade goods. Such as furs timber ivory some groups. Vikings decided that rather than trading they would steal from other tribes. They were known for finding a village along the ocean running the people out and taking all of their food and valuables similar pirates. Vikings were skilled warriors in battle. They use large round shields spears and axes to fight their enemies. One of their best tactics involved interlocking their shields to create a shield wall because of their skills in battle. The vikings were able to conquer land very far into europe. They became feared far and wide. While not all. Vikings were aggressive and behaved as pirates. Stories were told about them through the ages and one reason most people today assume that all vikings behave like pirates. Many vikings chose to trade with other tribes and often settled the new lands when the climate and soil was right for farming. They settled new places like iceland and greenland. During the viking age many of the tribes moved all the way into england and modern day russia. One of the norsemen settled greenland was named eric. The red he got his name from his red hair and red beard and his hot temper. Eric's wife was named joe tiled and they had three sons thorvald leaf and thorstein and a sister named fracas greenland was extremely cold and not good for farming. But eric the red and his family were able to hunt animals such as reindeer and do some basic farming to survive the work of clearing. The land of trees and farming was very hard. But these hardships are what made eric the red and his family. Strong eventually eric and his people found a better place to live in greenland. Where eric son leaf grew up his full name. Was leif eriksson. Since he was eric's son. Because eric red was so busy as chief leif was raised by a friend of their family name. Turker ticker tot leaf how to hunt with a bow trap animals to eat and fish with a hook and net. He also taught leaf how to sail a boat and navigate. See these were all very important skills. As a viking overtime and with lots of practice leaf learn all the skills he needed survive on his own and eventually left his family to make a life for himself. One of the first things he did was sail to the islands off the coast of scotland where he met a woman named thor guna they were married and had a son named thawra. Gul's like all great. Vikings and his father leaf wanted to explore the world outside of his homeland and discover new lands. Stories have been told about lands west across the ocean from greenland in europe. Leaf was curious whether he and his people could live there so he made up his mind to venture out and see for himself. Leaf gathered a crew of thirty four vikings and set off across the ocean on their sturdy long boats. After many days of sailing across the atlantic ocean they spotted land. They rowed ashore but the land was flat in rocky and not good for farming. This place wouldn't be good for a settlement but leave had discovered north america. This is the first time. Europeans reached the new world in what is now known as canada. A few hundred years before christopher columbus leaf and his crew decided to continue to sail south and eventually found a land that was wooded and green. He named this place mark land but decided to keep on going looking for a better place. They sailed down a river into a lake with freshwater that was full of fish. They anchored their boats wrote ashore and set up camp so they could learn more about this new place. One day they hiked further inland and found a vineyard and grapes. For this reason leaf decided to name the new land wien lund and what is now modern day canada after this leaf and his crew packed up and sail back to greenland to let people know about the new land. They had discovered not long after this leafs father eric. The red passed away and leave became the new chief. He ruled his people for twenty years. Interestingly he never returned to finland but his brother thorvald eriksson and his sister is dead. They sell devin. Lund picked more grapes and cut down trees to take home. They explored further down the coast but to their surprise other people were already living there. These native people had lived in the new world for thousands of years instead of trying to make friends or communicate with these people who they called the scribblings thorvald and the other. Vikings attacked them. The scribblings who survived the attack ram back to their village and soon returned with other warriors. When thorvald and the vikings saw the scribblings coming their way they turned and ran they fired their bows and thorvald was hit with an arrow and did not survive the viking state and lend two more seasons and buried thorvald there but eventually return to greenland later. Thorvald brother thorstein returned. Finland and later their sister pratice at one point. They brought one hundred and thirty. Vikings with them and again tried to settle the land north america but the native american people who already live there outnumbered them and did not want them there. They often attacked the vikings. The vikings knew that they were outnumbered and they would have to leave. Staying would be too dangerous later. Vikings would occasionally returned of england to cut down trees for building in greenland but they would never stay permanently later. Leif eriksson would go down in history. As the first explorer to reach the new world for hundred years before christopher columbus and the united states in nineteen sixty four october ninth officially became leif eriksson day. Today many people across the world trace their roots back to scandinavia. The land of the vikings or norsemen many of these descendants. Now live in the american midwest. You may have heard about a football team. The minnesota vikings were named after their ancestors. We hope you enjoyed this about the vikings and be sure to tune in next week..

Stefon Diggs Is Buffalos Miracle Man

"The best season of his pro career right now. How good are things going in buffalo. I mean really good. Pablo like you said. I mean you know again this is. This is a team. Obviously that has a lot of scar tissue for a difficult times in the past and so the bills themselves are they won. The division for the first time in a couple of decades and digs is right at the center of their success. I'm always staying for buffalo trust and believe in me. I'm forever grateful personally. He is having the best season of his career. He's averaging i think twenty yards more per game step touched up. He's leading the league in receptions josh allen. Taking a deep shot the separation from dixon. He's and he's doing in so many different ways dick's just electric on the outside best received early. Nfl this season so he's been outstanding and the cherry on top came against the broncos digs broke the bills franchise record for receptions allen fires. This one is caught about step addict. Steph dick sets the club record with one hundred and one catches on the season. Congratulate is showing the bills and the whole nfl just how versatile a receiver he really is. You interviewed him for your cover story. Sam what was he like in person burg. I honestly i came into it. A little bit unsure what to expect when i sat down and started talking with digs though it became clear very quickly that he's an upbeat guy. A positive guy a guy who likes to laugh a guy smile. A guy who really enjoys fashion is a little bit eccentric at various points. We talked about the books. He's been reading. He really enjoyed the alchemist his a starbucks order which is apparently tavon green tea with a little bit of juice in it. Well so he loves the alchemist the book. He's apparently an alchemist. Like juice in your starbucks order really y- apparently he's really into it and i have to say as somebody who enjoys green tea and also enjoys apple juice. I had never thought put them together.

He'll fire to the right side. Does it does that catch in. January of two thousand. Eighteen is arguably the greatest play in vikings history. And they've been around for over sixty years so that's pretty significant. You would think in that moment. Okay this is a play. That's going to define this guy's career and it's going to link him forever to this team. Damn bill says i. I got a Never stop working. Today was went all the work paid off and this is where i found his arc interesting within a year and a half or so. He's absolutely miserable. And even though you might have thought hey.

Geraldo, fair hair all of was born around nine sixty eight c go onto lead invasions into England starting to nine nine one. The nine hundred ninety one the English were attacked so often by the Vikings. They came up with the term din guild, which was simply just payments as a term for payments to the Vikings not to kill them. Now Vikings probably didn't invent extortion. But they did perfect. It seems Olaf was paid a guild in one thousand nine hundred ninety one not to attack England anymore. So in nine ninety four he and the king of Denmark Swain forked beard or spin for beard launched another attack on England to get them to stop the English paid a higher didn't go the following year with English treasure. He'd earned offset his sights on invading Norway after battling and killing hocken Sigurdson Huck in the great he was made king of Norway. He went onto make all this all his then pagan subjects convert to Christianity Olaf didn't make a lot of friends with his ideas. One of his more powerful enemies was his old ally spin fort beard and another was Eric Hopkinson the set of the Norwegian king. He just killed Olaf. Would later be ambushed according to legend by thousand men, but instead of surrendering he jumped into the ocean never to be seen again. The famous Viking son of her all fair hair was given the colorful name of Eric blood axe born Eric Harley Johnson. King fair hair ahead. His boy murdering people and rating Europe when he was just twelve Eric got his name by playing nice with the other children. But then slaughtering all but one of his brothers with an ex lice.

"Despite will watching too much mainstream news may lead you to believe if you look around the globe a lot of nations, although certainly not the majority have managed to create thriving modern societies where most of their citizens aren't doing too bad there at least doing quite a bit better than most of humankind was doing as recently as a hundred years ago and doing way better than we all were a thousand plus years ago, most of the world's people have longer lifespans than we did just a few decades prior most of us enjoy heightened individual liberties and a laundry list of modern amenities that would make any king just two centuries back get pretty damn jealous. Maybe making more throw his little king hat down in disgust. I bet any ancient feral would happily trade his pyramid or the relative.

And out of all the cultures currently crush in the past on the standard of living scale, there is one cold and wet part of the earth that seems to somehow always be among the leaders of the pack Scandinavia. Land of the Vikings when it comes to a quality of opportunity, education, basic, human happiness, and even economic freedom. Scandinavian nations seem to lead the rest of the world today, the citizens of Denmark, Sweden, and Norway are considered among the kindest societies the most fair and the happiest people in the world. Why they're these are the descendants of who we call the Vikings history's most infamous Raper's in pillagers nor societies that populated northern Europe. Born exactly known for their gentle touch history. Often refers to Vikings is dirty bloodthirsty man animals that left her weak babies for dead and rape and pillage shed of any land they found people alive on and some of that reputation is earned some the Vikings were raiders and they did revel in battle. They did take slaves and there was a lot of violence. But there are also, you know, their culture mired myth how much of the popular understanding of Viking history is actually true and how much of their history has been written by their enemies and their victims. There are. Are so many interesting aspects to the Vikings in their culture, we've touched on the spiritual beliefs of the Vikings with north God's in the past back in suck seventy seven today. We dig into their actual lives. The Vikings are much more complicated than the brutal sociopaths. They've been often remembered as a rich culture with its own languages, religion, mythology and customs, the Vikings continue to be a popular topic of discussion nearly a thousand years after decline most of what we know about the ancient Nordic people come from sagas and semi historical writings written about them centuries. After the fact like the mythology of all cultures cultures many of the sagas trade. Historical accuracy for mythos in hyperbole. But we're still able based on the writings of a few agent stories and archaeological evidence to come to what we think is a pretty decent understanding of Viking life on this episode of the suck. We're going to find out how the descendants Viking warriors transitioned from international pirates and slavers and to some. The world's most a, you know, vanished and egalitarian nations, and we're gonna have fun doing it. We will dispel many myths.

"So they force offenses to make post nap decisions. And those three things combined are a really difficult to deal with and really difficult to to prepare for. It's one thing if you're dealing with a talented team, it's one thing if you're dealing with a team that blitzes lot. But then when you combine those with a team that gives you. A lot of different looks and the quarterbacks got a comeback, and he's gotta make that decision after the ball, snap, then infects wide receivers and tight ends. Whoa, because they've got reads built into their routes. They've got things that have to adjust based on the coverage and all that information is being processed after the snap and combined with the fact that they're coming off as brutal a loss as they came off last week. This is going to be another team that that's that's angry and Elul death. It's not like season on the brink desperate, but we saw last week the more desperate team won almost every game, the team that had to have it or at least played better than they had. The Rams are everyone's got number one in the power rankings. Everyone thinks this is the best team in the NFC. Vikings are disappointing one one in one right now after an embarrassed, they just is seventeen point favorites. That's the point you're making right after what happened last week. I think the Vikings ability undo to be very, very silent. As you said, do multiple things will, but their ability to be able to tackle. They are sound and you don't have a lot of good tackling. NFL teams allow the passing tax in the NFL, get the ball, their hand fast to the flat cross the middle, and make people tackled Vikings are good tackling team. The Rams were they good. They're great motion a lot of disguise stuff, but some kind of way they want to get the ball in the one of their athletes hands and give him an opportunity to build a makes them yards in space. So the tackling becomes important people. Say you go into the game, everyone should tackle. No, it's hard and especially early in the season, you see a lot of miss tackles and NFL how many yards they get after contact, how many yards they get after the catch. Those are two things outside of turnovers that help determine we can in week out if you can win NFL game and tackling becomes more and more challenging each year in the NFL because there's keeps being revised how you have to tackle where you have to tackle how much force you can apply when you tackle. So the teams that are able to adjust to that and the teams that are able to do that within the context of the ever emerging rules that come out in terms of how the game is played. That's a, that's a big component to it, and Minnesota has been able to do it better than most teams have. How much can a team learn from a game against the same team. The previous year last year Vikings Rams played each other Rams, got the opening kickoff drove right down the field score to. Down and the Viking shut him out from their own out. They won twenty four, seven girly had his worst game of the year. Jared Goff has his second worst game of the year against this Vikings defense, how much can that be instructive for both teams this year, we usually what you do is you put together an after action report and you look at things you did well things. You did poorly preparation, airs and plan. For the next time you play that opponent and if things stay consistent, you'll go back and it's like current, you talking future you and say, okay, I remembered this, this. This was very effective. Let's see if we can develop that packet. So having having exposure to a team, being able to be familiar with the personnel, all those things that come with a week of preparation really is a huge advantage..

Vikings. The Vikings locker room a disappointing loss. Buffalo Bills over the Minnesota Vikings coach. You gotta have a short memory in the NFL. And thankfully, we have a short week going into L A. What did you tell your guys? Well, I just told him that you know, we we did all the things that were that get you beat. You know, we turn the ball over. We didn't run run the ball. Very good. We didn't protect obviously we turn guys lease in the secondary. We had penalties on defense. We'll let the quarterback scramble and special teams. We had penalties and. We put ourselves in bad situations. All three phases. How do you get it out of your system with such a short week? I mean, there's not a whole lot of physical work that you can do. But how do you get this one out of your system? Yeah. I don't know, Greg. You know, we're going to have to sit down and really evaluate things again. And you know, it's disappointing come in here and play this way at home in front of our fans. I third down. We get him out on defense. And then we get a penalty. And then we get another penalty later on. And next thing. You know, it's it's. No, just the whole thing snowballs. So. We're going to have to run the ball better. We're gonna have to protect better. I need to coach better. This is a copycat league last week. You knew that Aaron Rodgers hobbling not being as mobile as he wanted to be as a quarterback. They with a lot of quick rhythm passes seems like buffalo from start did some of the very same things. Do how do you fix that? I mean, how do we get pressure back on the quarterback? Again. I think we have pressure on quarterback for most most of the day when he was thrown. Denno beat the guy a couple of times. But you know, we weren't disciplined in our rush lanes and the quarterback got out. We pressured him one time in a quarterback snuck through the the open side, you know, they scrambled in a in a red zone, which you know, we we have couple of free players there that should be able to get it before they get to the third down. So we'll look at it. And we'll keep going. I have not lost confidence in his football team. You know, obviously, we didn't play well enough today win or probably any day we play like that. So. But. You know, I think we'll come back and fight communication or the lack thereof. Seems like in the secondary especially wintry. Wayne's went down that appeared to magnify the problem. And they and they caught us in some situations. Yeah. They caught us a couple of times. You know, we got to Myung younger guys in there now and. Again, Mike practice mostly into nNcholas week. And then he had to go in their corner. So. But we you know, we did turn a couple of guys lose again. And that's got to stop. We've we've always been really good at being in the right position in a backhand. And we have not done a good job this year yet. No, you don't talk a whole lot about injured players, but missing Galvin cook and his versatility as a running back and a receiver. You miss that young man today, but you know, Greg I mean we rushed for fourteen yards. I mean, those guys were coming off the ball and pounding is pretty good. So I'm not gonna say anybody that we missed a lot to do with this one coach, thanks for your time. Right. Coach Mike Zimmer guys back upstairs to you. All right, Greg. Thank you buddy turnovers.

"Emotion of it and go through that like it's it's a what you're doing is senses you're putting safety at risk you're also putting guys that are going to be contentious angry or hurt against each other on the field like it's point right in the first time we have a brawl during one of those meaningless points that's when though reimagined it while i made for good visual at first because there were no defenders on the field it was just as if the vikings we're going to lineup and kick without without any opposition and while they waited for the saints a back case kingdom started leading the crowd in the vikings school chant which was pretty cool pretty great visual and the gamblers were the only people they cared about this because the vikings were favored by four and a half most of the week but in the last day or to the line jumped up to five and a half at a bunch of sports books so that extrapoint would have decided who won and lost and so i guess you could you're probably right that that gambling aspect is why the nfl forces teams to kick um but most of them of late have just been kneeling on the play which is exactly what happened eight minutes and one second later after they finally got of would back on the field they just took a knee which is which is kind of alarming in frustrating for gamblers i'm sure but again the the crazy thing is we just saw the walk off ending against a in the national championship game right so we see another one and it is just it's that moment in sports is just such a perfect perfect it doesn't matter who you root roar you just you just yell lay i found myself i felt pretty good like thirty seconds left i was like well might not amend the prettiest way to get there but i think i'm free in one for the weekend for the second straight we can feel pretty good and then that happens in you just i've i'm screaming at the tv it doesn't matter and the number of people on twitter and you get this all the time that we wanna come at you every time he pick a rock i love a fantastic ending that's all that matters in the vatan the vikings gay that to us it's such a perfect will remember that moment.
