"The former Geo live from radio row down in Miami. The site of Super Bowl fifty four and and to my left is a man who is always looking in shape in dapper and had a great. NFL career in Miami legend. Of course in college former New York worked jet quarterback Vinny Testaverde Vinnie. Good morning what's happening. Good morning how you guys doing today one of my favorite people in all the NFL and Vinnie. And I went on a golf trip once and you talk about Vinnie being in shape right I. I was a mess I was like. I just thought maybe ten years out of the League and I was like partaking everything that was was going on and we went to Scotland for for a golf trip with about forty guys and cut back to this castle. Like place that we're staying right. Vin Awesome trip right and the next thing I know we have to put on kilts and I come out with these kills. I got these white stiff. Big Jain norms legs comes out of any of these Nice Tan in late. Yeah Lenny legs to kill. Ben was still have a picture of me you and Dan you know standing on the stairs in the background it was awesome the last time you and I spent any time together. What you've been up to You know just been at home Playing golf raising kids. Doing some honeydews. China stay stress free free as much as possible team and like why would you want to do anything else right. Honestly why well if I can have any other job. It'd be here with you guys do this. I don't know if I could do it as well as you guys have to. Send it to you guys. You're you're in Tampa now. Three Yard in Tampa Florida and now they have any sports talk stations over there. Do you ever You don't WanNa do this every day. D I'm I'm looking for a part of a part time job. That's okay ABC Sunday morning. NFL thing or something like that do involve the bucks at all the no. I'm not involved with the books The only five and a half as I see the coaches Every once in a while out on the golf course and say hello and You you know kind of leave them alone. They don't WanNa talk too much football but It's always nice to see them out there. I was just wondering maybe they would ask you to talk to James. Stop thrown exceptions. Well you know I went through that early in my career. But hopefully coach Arians can can turn it around for him and the organization Vinnie is with us on behalf of straight talk wireless. Listen we'll find out more about that in a little bit and go to straight talk dot com for me. The thing that when I think of you I think about those successful years with the jets then of course the the injury you to start the season After that Spectacular Ninety eight season. But when you get stopped by fans what's the thing in your career either college or pro that people ask you the most about well. There's a couple of things one. You mentioned the injury. The Achilles Injury Ninety nine when we came off a great year ninety eight went to the AFC championship game. A AH great moment was the Monday night Miracle Game. That was always a lot of fun. They even had a reunion a ten year reunion on that so it was a big moment in jets history. What a great team? That was man in one thousand nine hundred eight a great team. Yeah you know you must have just been loving life being the quarterback of team a resurgence in your career. You know absolutely and Not only did we have a lot of talent but it was just fun to be on that team. We had a lot of characters in a good way and the guys were closed. And and I still stay in touch with with a lot of those guys and as you know boom from playing in the number of teams Cincinnati in particular when you guys go into the Super Bowl it's very memorable and it's good to get back with the guys that you went through it with you know you said you had a lot of characters on TV and there wasn't a bigger character than your head coach. I often listen to Phil Sims. Talk about his relationship with bill parcells. He basically raised Phil Simms as a quarterback and there are points Intel's life where he thought his first thing was F- right so just wondering how later in your career when you're playing for him how that relationship works and how that basically came all together. Yeah we had a great relationship still do and I have the greatest respect for bill parcells and I look forward to going to play for him because he just made everybody accountable for what they had to do on the a football field. And a you know as a former quarterback and some of the places you've been you you try to be not only the quarterback but sometimes coach too and when you get the coach parcells. It's just just about playing quarterback and doing your job. You know it's interesting. I think of you as a quarterback much the same way that I would characterize Eli manning like you never really ever put yourself out in front. Although you could've athletically you were so gifted you can throw with anybody. One of the best throwing arms in the league. Would you see manning retired and you see the. That's that's it. He had his career. I would imagine that you take a little solace in the fact that you can do it that way. You don't have to be the A.. Type personality absolutely you know and I have a son who's twenty the threes playing football and I try and use former players and players currently now as examples for him to follow allies. One of those guys where you can just make sure you do things right there do it. The Right Way and still have success talking Vinny Testaverde on boomer and Geo on the fan and CBS sports network. When you look back at ninety eight team do you think? Wow we got everything possible out of this team and you look more of it like it was a missed opportunity could have been a championship. Well we felt like we had the ability to win a championship championship You know we went to Denver for the AFC championship game that year and it was a really windy day. Twenty five thirty mile an hour gusts and we had a couple Lewinsky's that Obviously Denver took advantage of otherwise. I think we would have been able to go when play against within Atlanta Atlanta Falcons and we had beaten earlier in the air. Pretty pretty pretty good so we felt like we would beat them again. Yeah I remember that Because I grew up in Minnesota Vikings Fan and that was the ninety eight championship game. And and then that that happened first and then I remember the jets. Were on after that and I like have a fog memory of the game because of what I what I just watched. So you're with straight talk wireless send people are streaming the game more than ever on their mobile devices and straight talk. Wireless helps them out with that. Don't they absolutely you know last year. During the Super Bowl the fans streamed that game Throughout the defendant and over seven and a half million devices are used and it was up twenty percent over two thousand eighteen. So we're looking for more people that do that this this year as well. You don't strike me as a stream the game guy into streaming well I watch it on TV. But I do have group text with my guys and we talk about on social media as the game's going on so it's a lot of fun to do you still watching football as much as you ever did. I do watch quite a bit. I enjoy the night games because during the day I'm out on the golf course somewhere but You know his life man. There's a good game to watch. I'm home watching it. Certainly this Sunday. He'll be there watching it as well. He's still involved with outback. Steakhouse I am no longer involved. What is happy? That's why we don't like episode. I saw me ask you this when when you see Patrick Mahomes on the field what do you think I think. Wow what a what a gifted athlete. What a talent to do it at a young age as well Both Jimmy Garoppolo and Patrick Mahomes have great opportunity in front of them at a young age and You know I've never been to Super Bowl you've been to one. I believe it's it's something that to dream about his kids and it's GonNa come true for one of these kids to win the Super Bowl. Somebody was asking me the other day. Do you think Tom Brady. Jimmy Garoppolo get along said well if our Jimmy Garoppolo I I would get along because I want to two super bowls watching Tom. Brady go through the whole process and then I was fortunate. Enough traded tweet team that was in the midst of a rebuild with a new coach. A new general manager had all these first round picks all wanted the defensive side of the football which Dow definitely makes our job a lot easier which I think when you go back to your years as a jet you you think about the defense and how good the defense was and how like if you had an off day you could still win football game and I think that's the kind of the situation Jimmy Garoppolo in right now. Yeah I think he's doing a great situation Asian he just really needs to manage the game and he's done that throughout the year and he's done a good job of it might be a little different case. Come this Sunday. He might have to score a few more points with the explosiveness. So the Kansas City chiefs offense. I do like the forty niners defense I do I do. Yeah I you know I I live to a forty niner defense. I don't like them I I hate them all especially this group. This group has great. Nick boasts has been the perfect fit. And the interesting thing for me in this game is D Ford. The former Pinson who lined up offside last year in the AFC championship game that ultimately cost possibly the chiefs. That Game Patrick. Mom's getting the ball and overtime. Now he finds finds himself against the chiefs and now on the defensive line for the San Francisco Forty niners. I would imagine that there is a lot on the line personality. You're saying it's that he's GonNa make play at the end of the game and it's going to cost Patrick and those super bowl believable for him to be a little bit. I know he felt bad about absolutely. It's all stuck up for him. And if you look at the lineup by the offensive line of the Patriots I would tell you that it was an illegal on because the tackle was in the backfield. And that's why he was terminating where he was on the offensive line. By where the tackle a little sneaky thing that offensive tackles like jumbo Elliott used to be protected me. Well yes I guess he did now when you play for a team that is the legend has grown throughout the years Like your Miami team in eighty six is is it more like it is the whole story being told or is it more that it's been blown up. You know what I'm saying you lived in. I've seen documentaries on it. It seems just absolutely crazy. Is the story been overblown or is there actually stuff that we don't know that makes it even crazier well with all the guys that I have been on. ESPN and all these talk shows. They pretty much got the entire story out there. Okay so these guys love the camera. Love to talk about it but We we had a lot of a lot of fun and and in those years and really great teams as well. I feel like that. I mean when you're the man in the eighties like you guys were well. He was has been trophy. I understand but listen you also we're an NFL MVP about this. Got Three long islanders right. That's right yeah yeah I know I know tremendous I love it just the way I like it All right right so I know she has played off line at bellport high scale not not very well Used to get crushed.

Hello Vinny Testaverde Dan how you doing. I'm not done yet. That was ause I could. Here's your sportscenter up. Just GonNa tell the audience. WHO's there that you're talking to you and I said vinny testaverde Alexander Zebra okay? You Advance S. The Australian Open semi final phase dominate. FEM- late night tonight. I can't believe at two thousand twenty. This is the match that is still being replayed it is Roger Federer. He'll be taking on Novak Djokovic and finally joker six at Trepelo. Volunteers swallowed the heads of lego figurines for the unusual usual. Study to see how long it would take out of Lego on average. It took one point seven one days sports center brought to you by both twenty four. It's advanced it's hydrogen for athletes off the field with antioxidant vitamins. A and Z electrolytes from watermelon. See Salt and no artificial flavors or or sweeteners. Bolt twenty four all day hydration for all day athletes for all the latest headlines and information to the sportscenter on. ESPN radio all throughout the day. We we have the science but I want to ask any tests. Diverting how long he thinks it would take to poop out a lego conversation. I hope I never have to find out Dan. It's something that would be a little painful. I think this is what Vela check. Once said of Vinny Testaverde. The Guy could probably played linebacker defensive. End Running back that quarterback tight end safety. The Guy Probably could've played half the positions on the field. If that's where he had trained you agree with that many because you are a monster launched athlete at the position. Well Yeah I appreciate him saying that you know back at my Golf Club one day trying to tell the guys. This was recent A couple years ago. Now that I'm in my mid fifties that I used to be a good athlete and then all of a sudden a guy comes running into the clubhouse one day a big New England fan with his phone and he's telling everybody yeah look get this article on Testaverde Belichick's this is like I told you guys. That was a good athlete. I used to be a good athlete. Though I didn't know I was that good. He makes him. You sound better than what I was but I appreciate read it and I appreciate him. Can you give us a good bradier. Bella check story from inside the bowels of the secret Patriot place where you spent only one season you have a story it might surprise people about Brady being something different than you see in front of the camera. Yeah no I think is what you see from. Both of them is really what it is you know they they they definitely have been great for the Organization for each other. You Know I. I've listened to people say well can brady do or be as great as he was without Belichick and the same bill without Brady. I think they both went super bowls. Maybe not six but If they were a part It's like the perfect storm at those two guys and it's great to see it's great for football. And now we have some new young quarterbacks coming into the League and particularly in Pat Mahomes and Jimmy G. Vinny testaverde not with us here Main Billy out radio with vinny of any looks great Dan. This is what I mean. He's in his mid fifties always been sexiest. Hells Yeah. This is what you're supposed. Look like at mid fifties. I mean I'm just that that's me too you Dan But he was telling me. Hey you the picture fitness in high main-. I looked fantastic right now. Radio Radio Things are really picking up here telling you Dan Gillibrand just walked by but vinny testaverde's with us at Vinnie. You're telling me before we came on air here that you can now throw a football three times. So I'm wondering what's so your shoulder obviously hertz. What's the body part that hurts? The most is a product of you playing for as long as you did well. It's it's the right shoulder as many passes I've throwing just to go out in the backyard and have a catch at my son and I have to throw lefty because if I do it ready. I'm up all night with aches and pains. It's too much. Ah You know. And plus I got to prepare and get ready for my golf game the next day. So I don't want to be too sore Diana senioritis Diana Ross is in with us. She's got a question for you before we get to real quick. Though I talk to Bernie Kosar one time about the air that you guys came up in the idea the playing on astroturf and his body is an unbelievable mess. Any in terms of like an arm on straighten. He's got all sorts of issues. Because of the era that you guys played in that was kind of pre safety. How has your body body held up against some of those things? Yeah for the most part. I feel pretty good Dan. You know I still try and work out and do something every morning just to stay loose and make sure those a little injuries don't creep me because I know they're down there deep somewhere but the more active. You can stay as you get older. You're gonNA feel that's that's my belief I've any size to talk to you again. You know we make such a big deal out of bill. Belichick and bill parcells. We obviously did that documentary. But every time I watched watched that I always wondered. Do they really like each other. Just in your opinion do you think they like each other. Yeah I believe they do from what I've experienced short-term Tom I was there I think The not only like each other they have a great deal of respect for each other and what each one of them can do for the other I you know I don't have a bad word to say about either and Bill Belichick has been a spatial and very important my career house with him when he brought me to the Cleveland browns. He was the defensive coordinator with the jets and was inspirational to bring me too the jets under poor sales and then he brought me to New England for a year later in my career as a as emergency quarterback when I was forty three years old I think who do you have to say a bad word about. I would like to hear all of the people on your list. You played to give us some of the people that you do have to say a bad word about. There's there's there's some pretty nasty defenders I don't like too much that I've faced in my career but for the most part The people I've been around played eight for Teammates were on the same team. They're all been pretty good. I've always had great relationship that most of them now. It wasn't all perfect but for the most part you respect respect each other and trying to accomplish the same goals. What are you here on behalf of? What are you doing on radio row? Yeah so obviously this week superbowl week. Big Game coming up Here in Miami emme partnering with Straight Talk Wireless which is Prepaid no contract wireless service and that's your super bowl. Fans streamed the game live event in over seven and a half million devices and we hope that we get even more this year. Doing it was up twenty percent from two thousand eighteen. And if you're looking for more information you can at Straighttalk DOT com. You're good Vinnie Vinnie. I have to ask you Like Maddie do you feel any ambience your please. Do you feel any anger towards Dan over the whole pell grant thing. Well that's tells you well I don't dance all right. I didn't have anything to do with that. Exactly exactly what you could say something bad about your program. He didn't run program. The people responsible had something to do with it. But you know Dan we're hoping he can can have a better second year in and get things more in a head more direction that we all want it to be Vinnie. We pump the brakes on. Patrick Mahomes is the goat. Well I in my opinion. I think he's the next phase of the NFL. He's pretty good. And as long as you know Andy Reed's there and he keeps most of those players. They'RE GONNA make a run for a long time. I'M NOT SAYING THEY'RE GONNA be Belichick Brady but It might be the next best thing you oh you did a great job throughout your career. Vinny testaverde with us played across two decades. He did a great job of never saying the thing that would be controversial or be a spark your or a quarterback leader who didn't do those sorts of things. I want you now before you leave. Part of what it is that you're doing to tell me who the Best University of Miami quarterback was. It's the best ever played. No no not well. Don't say no I'm GonNa give you my honest answer and I'm going to go back to Jim Kelly. He's the guy that was That I looked up to that that was a freshman. He was a senior He got hurt during his senior year but he was doing things right. I learned a lot from him. And if I had to take one quarterback to go back and play a national championship I would take Jim Kelly. The greatest athlete that you saw at the University of Miami was blank Albert Bentley a lot. aww probably don't know that name but he was a running back when on the play in the NFL. I believe with the Indianapolis Colts at the time and one of the greatest athletes that I ever have witnessed. You've got him ahead of hi Smith Because a lot of guys that go good friend of mine he was a beast of a player but as far as pure athletes I think Albert Bentley was the guy by Bennie. Thank you for joining us. We appreciate the time Sir. You Bet thanks for having me on. Thanks panic before we let you go to find a question. Sorry about that. The single the most important thing the forty niners need to do to beat the cheats. Well they just need to keep playing great defense and get a new three and outs for the chiefs and Hopefully Jimmy offense can put up a couple more points than they've been doing on average but you go back to the saints game and they put up I think forty eight point so it's like the chameleon they need they do what they need to win the games I can't beliefs what's the matter here. We should I. I'm telling you I only hope I can look this good good at any point in my life now established how you feel about. Love's please stop Leering at any Ari and the next time I and Hamma. He's very very much. Thank you for being with us. Appreciate it guys. Thank you very much. Thanks very Blink people I am I. We've got to get into this with Diana when we come. I'm back how is it possible. Now it's one thing for nobody to ask how to God's doing when it's a phone interview but how is it that he's in front of these people asking the cliche shade Super Bowl question with a hiccup in it. That sounds like a seizure or a spasm and no one who's sitting next to him his commenting on it like just something simple like are you okay okay. No one seems to ask that question here. How is that possible? All right. We got thank Dianna was grilled by security. It's why she was a little late today. We'll get into that with her next. Here's the thing saving money with. GEICO is almost better than playing pickup basketball. Because there's always that guy who joins your game. He never passes the rock. He constantly bricks threes. And who completely hack you. And then put his hands up and say no foul no foul with gyco. It's easy easy to switch and save on car insurance no need to fake. An ankle sprain. Because you're absolutely exhausted. So switch and save with GYCO. It's almost better than sports. Sports Card Oscar Robinson had a forty one triple doubles back at sixty one. Sixty to forty wants to God's it's Robertson but PICCO okay but you don't live with our show with STU gods on. ESPN radio never late. But she was running late today. What happened they say something amazing an awful? That happened to me yesterday so we started our together. We started together having breakfast and we like to share some of the struggles that we have is women in sports and we both realized that we have the same issue which is men that like feet really like meat and so she was telling some story about how some guy like comments all the time about her feet so while she's telling the story. I took a picture of her feet. She she didn't realize it and my thought was there will be a day when I will send her feet her. And just say thinking of you you know so fast forward Lord I come here hang out with you guys headed back to the hotel I see meet on the street on like hey grab slice of pizza with me. I'm starving. She's like like all right. I guess I will so go and get a slice it down which for somebody that eats a lot of great pizza New York. This was a fantastic slice of pizza in Miami.

We are about being where we are and while we're talking a white Ford explorer hops. The curb. Tahoe Tahoe Oh and comes at us. So it's crappy little wooden table and my reaction was to stand up and throws table at the car and go meet a move and I flew back on Meena. You'll get your chance for rebuttal. Hold on Meena does it move in. She freezes and just start crying like almost like her her whole body collapsed and she just was like so I get up and I'm thinking okay. This person's car is still L.

The car are off and I started screaming at her. To get the heck out of the car and meanest kind of gathering yourself. And you've made yourself the real hero. I mean I mean but it doesn't seem to have done this. Is it really just a tale of how to people deal with fear. And I'm I'm not saying one is better than the other I easily have been Meena. Never has to do with the. We're getting there so I the police come. They arrest this woman mean and I just WanNa get out of their people around videotaping. The whole thing people are yelling.

We dealt with our emotions and right before I go to bed last night. Hi I'm thinking now's the time to send the picture of the feet. This is a bonding moment for me. And I I said to Tedy Bruschi Love your feast responded. So he doesn't and I'm I don't realize it till three o'clock in the morning shoot out of bed at Mike. Great with taxiway these.

What your biggest concern was last night in terms of if it had gone the other way media so afterwards Diana and our kind of collecting collecting ourselves later in the evening I was really crazy? Feel like narrowly survived this. Naturally the conversation turned to how would. ESPN remember us. And Diana was very upset because she thought I would make one big thing and she wouldn't even make countdown disputed because a friend I said no Diana you you would make the credit roll count. You'd be at least at the end I get I get the bump leading out of the show. Know Time is is important on that show and Super Bowl Week. Like no one's GonNa. What are the objections? You have to Diana's story. Was it begin where to even begin first of all. She didn't leap up in heroically. Throw the table able so the car jumps the curb. We're both frozen because it's moving Khanna's weirdly slowly right towards me and johnny kind of just jumps backwards. The car does hit me in knocks me over and you know I kind of curled in a fetal position. She's right about that. I was curled in a fetal position on the ground kind of shaking like a cockroach. She did run over over to the side to the car. But there is no no attempt at saving. No heroics you think very quickly to talk to the woman and calmer down. Stop the car though I will give you that yet. You were called saving you. It's a rowing. It was a it was a truck coming at. You put it in part. Nobody else standing around us even thought to do that. Everyone was just like Oh my God meet Akash to starve. ESPN is on the grabs flip. Flops it is amazing by the way that all week. I'm going to be asked to criticize defense.

Because I know I would with no feel no I saw boom boom one and MVP. I think almost one a super bowl probably should've would've super bowl. Numerous is that but this is what radio row at Super Bowl. A week is all about by the way I am lined up I have I am having drinks with fifteen separate people tonight ten of which I have no idea what their names aames or who they are and I meeting them at fifteen separate locations all them at seven thirty evening. This is what happens when you decide to stay in a hotel in Miami. Dan On yesterday still comes up to me. He's like what he's like staying here since anywhere. You say state in Miami Tonight Hotel Room and just walked away. He's waited for your call the entire day. I mean I sat there just waiting for Diana received the call me to abide by texting pictures of her feet to Tedy Bruschi. So can you guys explain to me though whether or not boomer Esiason is actually one an MVP. To God's jarred me with that I don't. I don't believe that that is accurate. What's to God said? I don't remember boomer size and being. MVP good do. I have it wrong. I think you're right actually Dan. I don't know we will find out Mike. We'll check the internet. It is fascinating here at the worldwide leader in sports. So that's what is your degree of conviction that you're right about that. I am I feel. Oh my wow this is this is a rare tire tell you one hundred percent one hundred percent Yes holy stood at you all right in nineteen eighty eight up put it on the poll. Whoever's handling the polls with billy not here I don't know who it is whether it's Roy or Chris Cody but did you know that boomer Esiason was an MVP this is an egregious hole in my knowledge. I'm sorry I dragged you into it and now now I'm right with you. I did not know either Mike. Can we please find the sound. I don't know how many times I have to ask you. How are we going to get it before the end of the week? Mina kimes confusing John Lynch and Wes welker I am endeavouring. That's the best that you've got four. That's all I can do Dan. I can't endeavor her dad. I think I know what happened here. I think being squash the podcast and put it up against the Mike telling you think made a made the Sam go away raw. This is the raw audio. They obviously didn't put this in the Finnish podcast. ESPN's kinds embarrassing herself. Remember you can listen to in the meantime show featuring Lenny and it is actually pretty informative football show. She's one of the most informed football voices. There are on this network. It's really bad. Look for the football expo. We really promoting this again. Like this is non. Stop Mega no that's ESPN daily hosted by me gets the promotion. The meantime show featuring lenny doesn't get anywhere cast as she diane are you jealous of Of menas ascent. Here's you to As you were just saying last segment you were saying that she would get a better obituary than you that he would be remembered and More fondly than you are you secretly jealous of the amount of promotion that meaning is getting now. I'm not because I've thought on Stugatz his podcast. I feel like that's that's fine. The world's trash you'll be remembered. ESPN on the party. Come for five minutes I WANNA talk to you about some football stuff. Two hours later talking about random things. But it's a it's I'm STU. I'm happy that you have me on it and I hope one day we could podcast together. Maybe Munich and join us. You can do three if if you call me back and if you get out here to radio row perhaps we could do what it is that we discussed before the week began. And maybe we could start that podcast. I'm just waiting around. Hold on on just a second because we have not made extraordinary radio in the last five minutes Mike. Are you looking longingly at Stephen. A Smith talking to rick. Ross at the Pool Outside as we stumble around here and can't get audio. Is that what you're looking at as they're fascinated at Chris Simms booms as they've called Brian. Nineteen eight the NFL. And Julius is so the just the juxtaposition from what's going on downstairs. which is a packed house security of food spread catering maximum and even small molly Karen and Rick Ross promoting what looks like actual rose? I feel really insignificant. I feel small Rick Ross. Write a book is a book in front of him. He did write a book to and I just feel like we don't matter anymore. Her and I feel like our foothold on. Being the biggest radio show in America has been usurped. We have been steamrolled. There is going to be a lot out of public controversy. I am going to cause when I turn on this network violently and start criticizing everybody when this gets older me and I realized that they've trampled Our entire environment. ESPN coming in visiting here and they've just trampled our entire environment. You get deep for a second the marching band nowhere. It has it's charm right. Of course our show can't get it perfect because that's not funny but damn if I would have wanted to be perfect just one day just just one day Loretta. I just walked on the set in the middle of the show not realizing we were on the air. I didn't even notice is perfect out here for me. boomer Chris anyone else there like you want me to come down there but sell it to me. Because I've been radio roads it's okay. Christopher Mad Dog Russo is here I mean what half of the most legendary dairy radio tandem in America who London Fletcher's Year Rod Woodson. The Hall of Famer Easier Arabas always year rob wasn't lives on radio row. Who else are we have? Anthony Moon moons. We got his finger is here they and you gotta get out of your of telling you. It's all right here right. Ah Khan and Oprah now look I don't there's now I make money moves. Mike would you do me a favor during the break. Because I don't actually know this off the top of my head Ratings are not something that I have paid much attention to but can you tell me if highly questionable ratings are better than I takes ratings. Wow because I think they are. I think they are not likely. I don't think it's likely glee either but I actually think they are surprised when someone told me that recently I'm like they are. I'm just curious if ESPN is going to you know snap to attention and realized is that they've come into our environment ear and urinated all over. Can I ask you a question about highly questionable Stephen a Smith on highly questionable. One eight hundred flowers you will be tonight on highly questionable behind us at the Cleveland or pool by the way we have breaking news right now Stephen. A Smith is leaning forty niners.

Like what What are the details? Is there first of all. It's the dumbest thing I've ever heard of by the way I'M GONNA sing. But the this company calls me that makes Games and they decided they thought that they would make a game about me and I said Risley really. That's just no one's going to be interested but for whatever reason it kept on getting some traction and they made it and it came out and I guess people actually like it but the game is basically based on everybody playing that tries to make my life better and that's their whole thing is a team team game. I don't think anybody really wins. But everybody wins so it's you know it's it's dumb all the way around. How do you measure success on that sort of project money I think if my curls are oh you mean like in the game or mean success in the game in the game not not not in the rules of the game and the successive excessive selling a product?

2001 Week 12: Patriots at Jets

"This is Christine Brown. And while I have to listen to this podcast as my motherly duty. You have the choice. Not My sons and of course Michael sometimes say some naughty things trying to be funny but really just being stupid. You still want to listen. Go right ahead I am not your mother all right back all of you. Who are still with us after the bullshit. We've said for the first eleven weeks this is week. Twelve of the two thousand one in New England patriots season with a Pasco to travel to the meadowlands stadium back. Then I believe so face. The New York jets the seven and three AFC EAST CO LEADERS NEW YORK. Jets the past six five right behind them tie with the dolphins for the first news east. We've already talked about the jets back in week. Two not much to talk about really other than that. So it's Kinda give a bit of an update into how they're doing. So far Curtis Martin. There was a lot of talk about him in this game he has. They talked about his success. In how well he had played against Patriots and he had some quote about how he wished he could play them. Eight Games a year. I think the Patriots would disagree because the quote was in seven reunions against Patriots. Y- gained more than one hundred yards against them five times including one hundred six yards in ten to three jets victory earlier in the season and at this point he was right he was going to say. It's like seventeen yards away from one thousand yard season and this correct. Yeah Seventeen and which he would get in this game of course because it's curse mark against Patriots back and then that gave him a row right yeah for his first seven seasons in a row when he was one of only three guys to do it is Barry Sanders someone else Eric Dickerson. Yes thank you. Eat Meat Effect. Alex you guys to tighten up our our game but we actually have to get these statues right. I don't know I don't think so different but it doesn't feel right does it? Also I think we touched on the last time but the Patriots have lost the last four games against the jets now and seven of the eight seven of the last eight meetings so beating the jets. Not something that happens often. Probably most of that was usually because bill belichick was on the other side line and some other games. But it's not anymore but he I don't believe he. Yeah if they had lost the last four the jets up until this game to this is the first time of him beating the jets the Patriots coach historic way. Good away I know you just did you. Boys Not Watch the game the nano how this is going to end we gotta build up to it. My friends no no by park as I do and I want what's fair. I mean I guess we can gloss over the fact that some personnel did change in this game all right talking to Santana Moss actually became a little bit more involved this time around correct because he had been injured up until the week before he caught his first catch in this game wins first glorious originally yeah career and went for like thirty three yards etch. He cut the ball that that was pretty. Did he come off with it? Does yeah it does. Let's see all right. We'll just jump into the game Talk about this game of two halves. First half was the jets half second half was patriots. Half Steve. What do you think about this first half? Did you have any any jumped out at you? We'll set the stage. It was fifty three degrees in December. Sounds like global warming started early. Oh yeah now literally heartache yes the Patriots dynasties started global warming boy on our case. It's their fault. The earth is flat to swimming. All right we're gonNA talk about this. What do you guys think about all this stuff? No I mean if you watch after Dr. Their first like ten minutes of the game. Where Tyler slips gave up a touchdown jets come back and one at home crowd Israel into it down like ten. Nothing super early Thirty one hundred yards passing. They could stop them up the entire game right now. Oh minutes now what we're blowing through material here we talk about for the next. Three flicker on the second supply awesome. I play the game at the shot. They're coming out flinging it. Yeah because there weren't known. I mean vinny Testaverde quarterbacks not exactly known for Chuck in the ball down the field but I think at one point ahead like eight passes to runs or something like that. They were tilted heavily in at least in the first quarter and a half towards the passing game and they were slain all over the place. They were bombs and the whole like thirty eight doing this. I believe yeah so. We decided last news right around. There is definitely thirty. Eight said it so pretty impressive. Yeah me not a thirty eight year old. Tom Brady I. I was looking up. Testaverde's stats his. Nineteen eighty eight season. Is it draft by the box whenever shady? Oh Yeah on fifteen games. He had a forty seven percent. Completion percentage will thirty two hundred yards this team touchdowns in thirty five pigs who started every game next year. I mean I kind of sounds like Jameis Winston a little bit. It reminds two touchdowns trump. Nick believable yeah. When was he drafted? Craig eighty eighty seven. What what What rounds he drafted like. How high was drafted Moore? Use a stud at Miami right. Yeah you while. He was like really highly touted coming out of school but thank draft last city team so I think they just gave him like four five years to dislike. You can't lose your job type deal. Yeah L. E. Shitty was drafted first overall in the draft. And then he had like a ton of he never threw more touchdowns Vicks of the box got slightly better when he went to the browns. Any I'd like to Pro Bowl seasons in like twenty one seasons that he played woman. Baltimore which I don't even remember what his career yardage numbers are like top twenty ever ladies all play for the pats do. Yeah he always sucked. Yeah he sucked for a long time. I mean inside. I mean this solid mediocre and some of these seasons. It looks like three thousand. Thirty five hundred yards twentyish touchdown. Well all right seventeen touchdowns and he just played for ever is he. A bus. Does the first overall if you play twenty one years. No Terry one years can't be a bust but he's never he's never been good. He's a two time pro bowl of thank you very much. Never been good us. The JAMEIS Winston. That's what I'm saying minus the crab stealing social media back then. Big Testaverde's fan was that he's just the main so I had a question I'll take like I don't know what else to go with that. Of course he sucks can interview spell his name without looking. 'cause I try it every time and I get it wrong every time this test a green that so what is tested. Stand for statue. You're GONNA make something up about testicles. But all right check boy. He's checking that soccer about mean had head. Testaverde is greener anyplace by its wickedness. Serendipity that is right Mike Breaking new ground baffled by all of this but that right there is is something nobody's ever said about but he has already. I think Allie nasty boy quickly. It's Kinda like the first half did It went downhill very quickly. Because the defensive ends where basically doing whatever the fuck they wanted and it was a lot of talk about total yards. Yeah in in the half and there was a lot of talk about how. What's the Al Brady does? When he has the same sort of issues that drew bledsoe has talking about no offense of line no time to throw at no running game which was basically this game and now that was interesting too because I mean we've seen shades of it this during the season that Brady kind of like having Shitty game or whatever because of navy a little bit of pressure. This was definitely the first one. I think that every play was just getting hammered Oh Yeah so obviously. They change it up. The announcers were even talking about how Weiss was changing of the game plan that they were kind of doing the dinking dunking the slants. The screens That sort of thing do you think is. I don't remember ever really doing that. And I know he's not a finesse passer anyway but do you think that bledsoe would have been successful in that type of system. That's a good question. Never really seemed to be the strength of BLEDSOE's game a picture at least a few plays that I may have made up in my mind or that actually happens where he would Overthrow a guy in the flat or overthrow a screenplay. Just because he doesn't really have touch he's more of a gun at down the field. Sorta guy so but I don't know if that was just you know the offense was was tailored to that and so he was more background noise. Mcbrayer live in La. That'll get cut I don't know if like they tailored down the field offense because of true blood so and his strength was chuck it down the field or if they that's just how they did it so he played that game and like didn't have the opportunity to do more short stuff but I don't know I don't think he had the decision making either. He didn't seem that quick and that was always the the knock on him was that he would pass the ball three times and get sacked right. Wasn't that you'd be like in someone's arms and you just like throw the ball up right. That's true auto play. Read the defense. What is three steps? Yeah so yeah. I guess that makes sense. I mean starting quarterback for a long enough time that he probably would have come across a couple of screens. There's some short stuff it's true and I feel like we kind of Shit on Bledsoe a lot so I wish that I think. Will you detail just you literally just did but I think that I think that that part of it also made him less accessible to for a long time he kind of was for a long time? The only thing that the Patriots had and so we did have that drive to always try to finish a play. I guess for lack of a better way putting it which happened. Yeah and I think it always like that he he would try that an every play because he was kind of so maybe overwhelmed because he had no protection he had no weapons. He had no anything like just him the shot so I gotta get Gary Patterson Air Ga you think. Give them weapons and a good coach. You'll played great team. He's GonNa look out of his depth. I don't know if it's that big of swing. I think drew bledsoe had enough talent that he could still pull himself through some games but I think he had that mentality of always having to try and make something happen. That kind of led to a lot of bad decisions I think is what they think gunslinger. Yeah I guess unless you stop tougher than Gothic feel like at least standing there and take it. Yeah I think yeah and I don't think you ever really see bledsoe. Get as confused. As Goth does like often that super bowl against the Patriots. He had no idea what was going on. I don't know if that's just because that's how he was coached. And the coaching. Let them down. Or if he's just not a good decision maker but bledsoe I mean he would make stupid decisions but he would also perform kind of on his own to you know while I was just wondering does e hold the ball long enough to come off as not knowing what's going on because I mean he'd throw a pick before he analyzed it s very maybe just look at because he might all the ball on longer. I'm not sure I mean like. I said he did the interception Oprah his head toss once again. Yeah I mean com buck Lynch bledsoe because every time he draws back on third down you. Just tighten up just reflexively. He's a nice man okay and I think he makes good wine having tried it yet but the word on the street is makes good wine. Nice Man who? Maybe we should do an episode where we all or a bottle of wine drink it. We do the episode and we'll do a review of. Oh I got the perfect game. I'm doing the Cabernet. His first his first game when the place of the bills. That's that's a hell of an idea. I mean I think we yeah. I think that's a pretty good. Yeah right so we'll put that in the and the guys actually have to drink though because I want to commit and I don't WanNa come off stupid on here. God forbid cut forbid you gotTA reputation uphold. What's the bad news? One hundred doll- hundred dollars bottle. Andy or the ratings are going to be So we have to start patriotic. Get some or maybe a gofundme you people donate to us one hundred dollars a bottle. I'm fine with the cheapest one is I mean. That's a problem for him but I mean we are. Podcast is made money. Let's be real by the time we get to that bills game. We're all going to be rich and famous. So whenever idea are here we go here? We go what we're GONNA do is we're going to crowd fund this via the bills Mafia. 'cause if anybody one likes to raise money and to likes to drink is the bills Mafia. That's so this does seem like a good cause so we'll have to see if we can reach out to them. Yes so listen to this website here. The president and director of wine making it says is Josh mcdaniels. The Josh mcdaniels while a crazy coincidence. How many are there out there? Because Josh mcdaniels was part of the team here wasn't he was. What was he doing offensive assistant? Yeah Whoa Denise Star the QB coach. Do I have that wrong? Oh boy we gotta stack this two thousand and as a personnel assistant and then a defensive. Coaching assistant working with defensive backs and then he was in two thousand and four. Became quarterback coach does offer a little bit. But yeah he was on the team in two thousand and this is first season. I mean it was such a unique name like that. It can't be a different person I mean and they do have overlap. You would think it's the same. Is it different now? Just walk is by Foreign Raising Wall Walla. An early age fell in love with Wine Industry Washington State. For what an odd that that's all areas. It's a beautiful sewed. Drew Bledsoe knows in his work with two separate Josh mcdaniels. Yeah Wow and it worked out for him. Alendronate hundred eggs better through times. I know what my guess is linked in drama Moloch. Let's see if we can get some bottles. Donate a greg connecting with all right. The review will go a long way for them so I think what is it. Four bottles four hundred bucks. It's not bad. We have tens of listeners to I mean we have twenties of listeners. Time this one is released. We might have like all right all right all right. So here's the issue. I just went to how many of me dot com which you can search for people with Your first last name. Hope I've done this. There are a lot of Andrew. Browns just GONNA spoiler there are thirty. Eight thousand seventy five people in the United States. The first name Josh. There are eight thousand. Four hundred seventy seven people lesson mcdaniels. There is one person. There is one person in the United States named Josh mcdaniels. According to this website this is bullshit because we just determined that. There's tool yeah. My whole life was Oh holy. Wait a minute what if trust does from the Patriots is lying about his identity on the website. Maybe he changes name when he got married. Maybe I'll maybe he's embarrassed to deal with. I don't know man I'm now I'm confused so I'm just GonNa step away from this conversation. So are we thinking that there aren't four thousand five hundred sixty five? Andrew Browns in the United States is definitely way more one Josh. Didn't you say there's three thousand mcdaniels a eight thousand? Mcdonald's eighty four hundred. You know how many people are in the United States box. Thank you greg. How many so three hundred plus million merit? I have my doubts about this website. I think The real question. So what is your more? Andy Greg. Steve Brown's or you know some funny at the college is a kid degree below me. Gregory D Brown ship facebook friends. He's kind of little you. Do you WANNA put it out there and reach out to him like do have some beef or something that you want to squashing put out there right now now so I I set up a Google news alert for my name because you can search time would answer every week. I get a list of all the Andrew Browns in the news. There is a defensive Lineman for the bengals. Probably the most famous other than me around. Yeah Steve Yoyo Gas. Oh googling the name and remember. I found a lot of murderers and a lot of other styles name to Andy Brown. Yeah US browns. So yeah I think. There's a lot of southern Andy Brown set the bigger question trouble with the law. Whether I'm fascinated by is why you have Google or on your name because I wanna see how Google alerts worked. Thought it'd be funny because I've heard of people with like actual interesting names unlike show up on me and so there's a park named after me in Texas that I want to go visit. I learned things from it so I think it was a good investment. I have to say I haven't met a lot of Mike mellows out when I worked at movie scene. Put a flag on every single. Steve Brown's account and said I lived on St. Call me if he comes in. Steve Brown came into the movie. He was like forty five years old. But we had a nice chat about nicknames. Oh boy missing. All of these interactions name. I guess yeah the Brown and the Brown really gives you a head start of the last name. I Wa Joshua linked game requests big fan of the wind connect ooh. That's good ole. No no yeah doing the slow play like that. We're the weight D. Do you have the podcast in your Lincoln though? Okay so he can't he can't track back of course not or by the time this episode comes out. That's going to be the only thing on my Lincoln because I'll have been fired from my real job for spending so much time doing this all dude. Oh don't admit that argument that I'm loved and under Kelly's that'll be interesting better. How might yeah and I'm GonNa work taste regularly on Kelly's lived in his mind well log into zoom? That's right then and it was on wall being boy so happy accident Yeah I I think that will work out for the best for everybody involved including Kelly. We'll give her some of the wine if if we get some all right all right so speaking of The jets football game I first half bad second-half good So the Pasco into the half down thirteen nothing. And what did you say? They had sixty something yards of total offense until the yards. Yeah so not a lot but the To be fair though the defense did all. Okay against the jets. I mean considering they're slinging it and momentum early on the You know sometime before the house in the first quarter. They had a goal line. Stand so it could've been could've been down two touchdowns a real quick and they they stuff the offense of the one so that made it what they were down by ten. Sounds Pretty yes? Yeah that was the first quarter. Yeah Tedy Bruschi came in with the staff and the final one man. Yeah Him Brian Cox. It was curtis. Martin tried to jump over the pile. Just hit a brick wall of the two of them. Beautiful by. Yeah and yeah. This was Brian Cox's I came back from when he broke his leg in Denver. You know 'cause there was an article in the globe about how he recovered from a broken leg quicker than Terry Glenn recovered from his quote unquote hamstring injury. Hamstrings tough and I guess. More sneaky surprise season. What was your sneaky surprises him. Brian Cox Yeah Awesome. Did he plays. He's just a monster. Yeah he was He was screaming at the rest for something. I don't remember that on. It was like on the field goal. Tempt Yeah H is ahead. They like the jets. Were offsides fault. Yes all right and the rest call that and he was. I've yet to get pulled away from the referee so he wouldn't get another fifteen yard. Unsportsmanlike conduct like literally dragged away. Great Billy imagined. Miked up a bit amazing. Oh Man Well. I posted a link to the NFL. Prime-time highlight video mainly for Greg because he never watches the game But at the end of it they had an interview with him and he was basically saying. Yeah we actually played like Shit but we still beat the jets. So it'll be nice if it's nice that we can still like not play very good and and beat a team like this so I'm excited for when we actually play good now the whole interview. Isn't that word for word? I am pretty shelves verbatim. Oh boy my wasn't putting favorite quoted at what has it. Was Chris Berman. Obviously Primetime off. There is a point where the patch receiver Coleman caught it and he got so many items seen this. Many Coleman since L. Being put a single on those little little girl things. It wasn't as smooth as line but he got there by I missed. Nfl Primetime so badly so quick. I ever catch. He had to career hatred entire Kerr Dire. Nfl crew trout now. Who's one of the big catch? Recognize him not to open the second half. They're kind of a couple first downs and then hit him for the forty five yard all the way down. Yeah I yeah so this is the beginning of the the half path got the ball and went backwards immediately. I think it was like a robot stuffed and then Brady got sacked. New went three and out and they punted The punting in his game was horrendous. So Ken Walter managed to punt it to his own thirty five so just got the ball at the New England thirty five and then Variable picks off the bat and ball couple plays later and then those that big play Coleman his one of two ever catches which goes 35-yards. The pats I think like six or seven straight times before they did anything yes as a one two three four five six at least they punted around five. Most of them sucked one of the ones to win yard line so that was helpful. I think we talked about Tom. To what might we? We touched on that. Do not do a whole thing on him because the year before there's all kinds of stuff that ties into the dynasty but that's for another day maybe we'll do a punter episode just for Mike. Because I don't know if like Greg Remembers as well but there was a game against the past like before the season where he came in as a quarterback is lighten it up and there's a lot of things that are tired into that guy in that game your prior so then he got hurt clutch keyshawn Johnson. Yes pretty is also when he was a member of the Brownsville Bell checks browns. He was the first ever player to score two point conversion. Oh No shit. That's awesome. Yeah it was on a like a fake field goal attempt and he was the holder those at that Darna. He's A. He's a QUARTERBACK PUNTER COMBO. He was drafted by the cardinals as a quarterback and then they converted he punted in college converted into Punter and he was an all American unturned college as well. The starting quarterback get this as a child. He was obviously unpassable. Kick semifinalist three times and no to that. Remember that that was awesome. Kick fucking win on facet kick fucking hope. So that's awesome. Great Caesar also spot right absolutely hell. Yeah emergency quarterback before we go too far into the second half. I just wanted to say that there are a couple of like drives brady struggled with one blast by mo lowest and Kim across our. I'm Mike. What if he just happened to go? Through what Bledsoe went through. And then he just lost his job. You never hear anything again actually. Wrote down that My note from Louis was that he was trying to kill both the Patriots quarterback because he although on that play like get look really bad in real time but then you could see actually eased up at the end of that. That hit really. I missed that part. Yeah just just just barely. But I think he may have had something on his conscience about killing roughing the passer flags. I don't think I've seen a single one of those yet this year. No we've seen a few probably should have been where Brady will slide And still get lit up right like a helmet to the facemask sort of thing but yeah no. I don't think we see that I can remember well. And then the other thing that like stuck out to me in the first half was so brady had a fumble that was actually an incomplete right so his his arms moon forward of the announcers freaking out that it's called the open hand rule and they were debating on if it was you know an incomplete if it was a fumble then literally the same drive pretty. Fumbles his hands. Moving backwards selects play. It might have been the next plan and I thought it was pretty funny because it seemed like the based on what the announcers weren't talking about it wasn't like a familiar thing already as it stood so I thought it was pretty good foreshadowing later in season. Yeah no kidding. Yeah but I actually had a note on that too because it was right at the end of the half so the Patriots. The ball with like two minutes left and that it was an obvious forward pass And I even in real time you could tell us a forward pass. But the jets challenge in any way and lost their last time out and so then the pages ran the clock down like thirty seconds before they punted it and so the jets got the ball back with went. Twenty nine seconds I have and so instead of being able to like take a couple of shots to get within field goal range which at this point probably would have been the game. Winning field goal They have tried. Hail Mary which they tried the Hail Mary and that was probably the most one of those bizarre plays. We've seen this season. Because Vinny TESTAVERDE GETS STRIP SACKED. Kerr's Martin recovers it and runs for like twenty thirty yards. It's like inside the the red zone before getting tackled. Did I can't believe that he didn't trilateral. That yeah it it did feel a little bit like the beginning of the Miami miracle to me going all the way they were so excited broke. A couple tackles like. Oh the announcers though man Brent Jones we already have a history with that guy but did not see my jacked up for this game like something. I every statement he had was like a hyperbole losing his mind so on a little self conscious about talking about commentators but since you brought them up I have. I have some things here Things that I have no probably not. I don't listen to the game the way you listen to the game. Wow Brian Jones the beginning of the game. It's just stupid and I quote. The jets are just as explosive as the rams on offense I mean think for a drive and a half exactly the first few drives when they actually decided to throw the ball. Well they have speed on the outside with these little receivers and they have Curtis Martin to keep you on something like that. It's not quite the same Brent but okay and then Went to game break with Oh what's his name that the game break to the go to New York urge no I can't remember but the game break was a colts game and I guess Peyton manning must be throwing a lot of interceptions this year because they show. I guess against the Ravens and they showed the Ravens who are touchdown them right the end. These slipped in the line of And Manning has not been picked off to this point and it was like halfway through the first quarter. I think he doesn't feel like there's a game where he had thrown like four. Yeah when you mentioned that. I thought that they meant all year but they were talking about that game yet and it was early in the first quarter and a stat. Check for you on that explosive offense comment yes would jets finished the season with the seventeenth ranked offense in the NFL. Oh that's a good. Good Call There Greg. Explosive Ranch Atrium with six who des. Moines by points scored. Okay what about by yards gained Wa Mia Stack Guy? Here were twenty four billion. Well okay. So that didn't help Brent's argument at all. Either I will say though to Brenston. Offense is the first game that I've actually been more annoyed with Gus. Johnson Real. Yeah it was driving me nuts. It was doing the whole game and I don't know if it was Brent is just insane him or if because gus has nothing else to add but that I mean my guess is that irritating. Brent Jones getting riled up in and Gus Johnson didn't WANNA get smacked around up there together in a booth. Did you hear the little thing that they got into? We're Santa Claus and sit on his lap. Man broncos guts. Maybe if you get married you can have some sitting on Santa's lap and he's like I hope so then Brenda's like I hope you get married you married or you hope you have a son I mean there's like silence and dust goes you put me on a tough spot. He went back to the game. Laugh is driving me nuts sit on Santa's lap. That's what he's hoping for and ask for what a son. I don't know there's something there's something deeper there so I'll look into. I'M GONNA leave that one alone enough dumb shit today Did you notice how excited Brent Jones was about the height of the grass on and on about how the edges of the field had taller grass in the middle was much softer and shorter and easier to run in? But the outside was easier to cut on every time the ball went to the outside or those run up the middle. He will come about the grass. I don't know why don't you learn something? New His staff that he was going to keep going on. Did you pick out last time? But he was like obsessed with Canadian blue seats that the same guy. Canadian blue steel wasn't a steel. Yeah but now. He's maybe into. Details is wrong that maybe his daughter played for the Boston. Breakers women's professional soccer team one Wa- Ncaa CHAMPIONSHIPS UNC. Who so she's big-time eight-time hotshot athletic families did? I did have some questions if you guys want to help me out again. Oh Yeah let's do this. I'm Brian Jones Game. So we know this is going to happen. Football football give it to our now football. Yep All right here we go. I'll just start with the first one that I have on. This one was about Lor Malloy apparently and he was saying. That's exactly what they WANNA do. Get him out of the box. Let Curtis Martin Start. Pounded up there now. Based on past episodes I think the boss is like we're the running back is yeah. I think we've talked about that before in terms of boxes kind of the. It's an imaginary box that surrounds the both offensive and defensive line as kind of how many people are in that little area. Yeah also. It's also euphemism for Regina Mike Confused. Yeah that makes like well no but it also seems a little like selfish too. That's exactly what they WANNA do. Get lawyer Malloy out of the box and let Curtis Martin start to pound it up in there. I just thought those a little selfish they call it the CFO. Not No shit. That sounds that sounds. Pretty khanate intimate. Yeah I can I would believe that AK clam all right so so it's the getting him out of the box means getting getting them out of that area and then that would allow Curtis Martin to wipe pounded through. There is yet to clue when you put it like that. That sounds horrible. He can hit the whole with juice. Okay well yeah but that was about passing though so I guess you could say the same thing. I see what you're saying. Yeah all right well. That's informative okay. What else next one was Tom? Brady doesn't see me coming. Who has a full head of steam and gets it off just in time? What is it? I just wonder how your mind works. Confused Breath Jones throws out new new every time. I'm just fascinated. Oh Shit sometimes. I'm sort of fascinated with what he's saying that I miss a player to Kim. Yeah so I re read that back again. So Tom Brady doesn't c Mo Lewis coming who has a full head of steam and gets it off just in time. Okay all right so I think I know so my guess. I'm not able to see the play in real time but I think Tom Brady is probably dropped back to pass. And I think the Mola was coming is running at probably to try for a sack you know and so Tom Brady getting it off. I think is throwing the ball before me gets their own and MOLA's bus not on his face one of the two. Jesus man I can't believe he just said that. That's territory Jim. Yeah what the Hell Only God. That's okay that Steve. But I appreciate the effort. You'RE GONNA say Greg Hustle. We'll talk after we. I did this segment. I tried to like listen for these and I couldn't do it. So this is a unique skill life. This is what I'm saying. I his brain works differently the money. He's only four for every game all listening for them not to. I don't WanNa know everything but refused thereto this so next one so we we mentioned in the box so we get that and I think now this is a little silly bringing this up but I'll just say it anyway The quote was. We've talked about eight men. Auks how about eight men in the Enza? Oh my yeah okay all right so we know the boxes right we. We just discussed correct so I remember this plan right because this is right at the. This is the Hail Mary we're talking about and the Patriots unveiled the new defensive scheme. Oh yeah that's what was where they had eight of their players lined up basically in the end zone to knock down a hail Mary because they wanted to have more guys than on defense in the the offense down wide receivers because usually it's a hail Mary sending at least four if not five wide receivers down into the end zone so you WanNa have more than that to cover them unique situation. That was the first time that was done because Brian Jones seeing that. That was a new his the first. I'm Brian Jones ever saw. That's for sure okay. All meant to put eight in the box and they end up in the end zone. You're in big trouble very true. See I've learned a lot of stuff and the last one. Those defensive ends of the jets get wide so much that we're going to use some draw action to come on underneath. I don't know what that means at all. All right. Okay all right. I know I know this because we talked about this a little bit. Where just defensive ends? Were getting a lot of quick pressure on Tom. Brady right. Yeah so but if you think about the way they run because they're coming off the going out wide arounds usually the guys that are trying to block them to close on. Tom Brady as they're giving that space. There's a lot of space in the middle so the patients were mitigating. That by running drop. Plays where you drop back and it looks like you're GonNa pass it but then you hand it off to running back on a delay shadow. Can they run where those the defensive lineman used to be that makes sense right? I mean I don't know I think that makes sense. Do you guys agree. I stopped listening after the third one. Well I appreciate your help guys a little bit smarter for all right. The real question is Mike. How did you not get on the quarterback sneak where the Tessa very patched senators? Dick when they ran a straight ahead what we're talking about. Yeah there was literally sexual brench was talking about not enjoying being news. Well I heard about the rundle. I'm pretty sure. Yeah that's what he was talking about for real. Yeah that's what they do. They Gustav Physical. Tell for the center to snap the ball immediately and run like hell. He made a joke. It's like slapping a horse and running after it got his talks to tell this guy did spread Jones with everybody more involved so I I think I think this is the perfect time to do. Best in worse Steve. I well. I'm definitely I was going to say that we discussed now. You can still use it if you wanNA tell you us. Think best bit was how stoked bell check was the end of the game. Yeah cited all reserve but this is first win against jets clearly hates the jets. I do and at the end of the game. He's runarounds yell at. He's grabbed his players. Like it's pretty crazy. That's a good one. Worst ever jets are absolutely open them up in that slipped by Tilahun that slant that just gave him walk a terrible start. That was not great. Greg Gimme a besson worth. My best was Antoine Smith on that reception. Ooh Yeah that was his. Acceleration came out of nowhere. Is it didn't have cheese. Yeah I agree that equal and then my worst was just curtis Martin in general because he's a ton and that is punt service punter. Mike besser worse. I'm just I mean he's awesome but we have reason to it isn't he? Got Traded Man Best for me was So it right after week one of the Patriots touchdowns There is a kick return. That was going to break it and I think I would have been the end of the game and Viteri comes up north so your credit man your brothers the beginning of this podcast series the beasts and then I realized after seeing the clip that you showed and this has happened twice in this season alone. Yeah down the returner. As the last guy and save the touchdown and yet drive. They ended up getting a field goal. Thousand touchdown game over. Yeah because that was. What was that Herschel Walker Clipper talking about Oh yeah yeah. You're right old somewhere. I think it was someone on jet saying. That's the fastest kicker. They've ever seen. Yeah it was. It was it was right. After the Patriots first touchdown was that ensuing kickoff right seven thirteen and after that of seven sixteen but would have been over right. Exactly so yeah. Yeah Yeah because one of the commentators like. That's the fastest kicker I've ever seen you're correct. Yeah it was pretty cool so I don't know how many of those using his career but I know of three a moment and then worst moments I would go pretty much what Steve said but the opposite end of it where bill was so happy smiling his high fiving hugging and I just know that a few years later. We're never gonNA see that again. Made me sad so my worse that he was happy at one point now. He's not all right then two-thirds why. Oh Boy Yup and we established thousand. Four is when you know we'll get to that correct our rights. My best is the winning the game. Winning play Patriots The the last time they need a first down its third and like three or four and the pages run a bootleg with Tom Brady But the defensive end steps right in the way and he basically just cuts it back up field and runs for a first down all by himself as to win the game dude. I forgot to anti spun as well. He did the Spain any dove and yeah he got the. I took the first by like the nose of the football. To like it was it was close and That was the game winner. So that's by far my best. That's just a good one. That's that's Tom Brady being Tom Brady before everybody knew Tom Brady. I was going to be the page to article that I found about by Bob Halloran. Who has a hard on for drew bledsoe But I think it's actually GonNa work better later because he has a few of them so we're GONNA actually get in-depth into some of the more egregious ones. So I'm GonNa say my worst is the jets fans for two reasons. One was firemen. Ed Yeah what a fucking Harto. And every time they cut to him they were showing him. Try to pump up the crowd. Even though the jets weren't offense every fucking him sitting on his boys shoulders like a chicken a concert just waving his hat around like yeah and then they also kept talking about how there the jets fans unofficial mascot is. Shrek because he's green and they win ugly. I don't remember that being a thing but they did keep out that early. Shrek that old I I guess so. I mean Mike went to school for that Mike. How old was when I went to school a few years ago? It was already out because this is two thousand one right so we gone. It had come out recently and I will say this because I was a lovely school of Rit and I went for computer animation. And when I was taking the tour I nobody into computer. Animation was really police. Come out and Shrek was recently out. We took a tour. These computers. This lab is what they use to work on Shrek with. We're all that is crazy. I gotTa go here and then I went there and I leave at that story for another day. Apparently yes but there's shades of your Penn state experiences and whatever into that all the time but to confirm yes records out and doing well. How many at all right like helicopter Cox who? I didn't see it was a different type of environment out. There of people not right. Yeah National Technical Institute yes right near there and I was in a room that was different so people would walk by the hallway and press the button so the struggle off and that was pretty cool. 'cause the add to that was the The firearm for deaf people right the strobe. Right yeah but you press it in the hallway right so did right. There's a lot of a lot of good things about all righty. So we'll figure them all out at heart. Yeah we'll get into that no hell dicks though man. Maybe we'll get into that next week. When the Patriots travel back home to host the include. Six five Cleveland browns coming into Foxborough then a revenge game how so? Oh I guess it is. Yeah there are adventure tour. He's just stomping everybody. This is true so we'll learn more about that next week on the Patriots. Doc- podcast. Cla US by.

Carson Palmer joins Boomer & Gio

"Live from the Traveling Investors Bank Studio Gomorrah size in Gregg Giannotti boomer and Geo on the fan and across the country on. CBS CBS sports network. WE'RE DOWN TO MIAMI RADIO ROW. Miami Beach Convention Center Super Bowl Fifty Four. And here's a man here that we have seen a lot over the last year or so and I like it every time I see him we got we got some stuff in common. He's got a lot in common with with me and Jerry L.. What's that he doesn't like to be bothered by a lot of people he doesn't really enjoy? People elects quiet things like this is this is kind of the bond that we we have and that's of course Carson Palmer's with Fedex was going on Carson. I can't stand people. What's the deal with people you should ask Jerry Jerry? Things people are garbage what he says to see an abundance of that. But you live in Idaho so there's very few people out there trees Maoris lots of trees. How many people live in the town that you're living in now? I want to say six thousand six thousand. What's the name of the town? Where where is that? It located in South Central Idaho. Where do you fly into Hayley? Idaho a Hayley Idaho a it never heard of it. I have not. This is a first come visit. I would love to bring the Family Nice snowmobiles serious the whole show one thousand broadcasts we ask Fedex catch and phone with great quarterback moves to catch chip. Isn't that amazing. He's got like a quarterback. Moving them in has happened at madness. Yeah so You here with the air and ground stuff in the Fedex vettix player of the year nominees. A- Lamar Jackson Patrick mahomes Russell Wilson. Those are three really good ones those airplanes in the ground players Derrick Henry Nick Cha been in Christian McCaffrey and and one of these guys of course and Patrick Mahomes we're going to see on the grandest stage in the Super Bowl and stuff that this guy is doing is just mind blowing From your perspective having played the game as long as you did are you just totally impressed with his Skill and aptitude at this young age. Blown away I I know boomer you got a crush on on him from day one. Yes yes I remember that I don't know if we've seen an arm like this. I mean I I. I didn't play long enough when when far was around. I'm just trying to think of the Marina. Just trying to think of the velocity comparison. I just don't I don't. I can't name another quarterback that has that kind of armed talent that we've seen you you don't arm town vinny. Testaverde Vinnie was here just before you and I was thinking about that. He's a guy that never gets talked about about throwing the football and if you go back and you watch youtube. Videos radio's of Vinny Testaverde. Throwing the football had won best arms of his era. But you're right. I mean Patrick. Along with the poise in the arm. Angles that sometimes. He gets himself entangled in and still throws it with accuracy is the thing that really catches me. We're in touch to a lot of guys with with an absolute hose. Don't don't have the ability to kind of fed the ball in those fifteen and twenty yard comebacks when they're laying it over a linebackers head and getting it down to the comeback route and for a guy was such a powerful arm. He's got such such finesse and such touch on the ball to which is that that combination You know you're right when you think back to vinny testaverde birdie and Randall Cunningham had a host. But I don't know if we've seen an arm quite like Patrick's when I think about Jimmy Garoppolo's NFC championship game. I asked boomer to ask you the same thing I mean. He didn't do anything in the game. Barely now his team went to the Super Bowl weight. But you hold on. Yeah hold on. Don't kill your eyesight. He did everything he was asked to. Do I get it. I'm not knocking him. The question is what he does to me here. He doesn't even let me get nothing out. He's already rolling on. I just got frustrated. No no no I'm not. I'm not going where you think I'm GonNa give me enough credit all right as a competitor when your team goes to the Super Bowl you know that you ran the ball down the other teams throw. But you weren't asked to do a a whole lot. 'cause you didn't have to is party like man. I wish it would have had a little bit. More Niche Game Plan. You know the first thing that comes to my mind when I think about that is is how how good it must feel upfront for. When you're the quarterback and you're offensive lineman absolutely just grinds it out and pounds the ball down? Somebody's throat that confidence. That's swagger that that offense align in San Francisco's walking into the Super Bowl with is what would excite me being the quarterback just knowing the confidence those guys have that they can just shove the ball down. Somebody's throat however you get super bowl the super bowl I mean tattle care. He's in the Super Bowl number one seat. And he threw more touchdown. That sound passes to Patrick Mahomes now. Patrick got hurt this year but still his numbers speak for themselves. He's a quality quarterback. Here's what people don't understand. When he gets the line of scrimmage you'd think he just runs play that they call from the sideline he has to go up there? He has to read the defense and then he has to communicate to the other ten guys. What running play that? They're actually going to run. So there is a underrated rated part of what he is doing in what many people think is one of the best run offenses that they've ever seen simply because it looks traditional but it's not because of all the intricacies that are part of it and we could sit here for hours talking about this. You can throw game manager on Jimmy Garoppolo all day long but the greatest quarterback in the history of the League was was a great game manager and Tom Brady so I mean you you can say he's he's just done enough to get his team here but the point is his teams here there were the one seed in the. NFC HE I I I think. Back to some of the regular season games the game he had against Arizona's washing play against the cardinals in Arizona. He made like six third down throws under under duress off-balance accurate balls to win the game but Minnesota gave me you think he had some big moments at the Indie Games. which is I I could care less us? How how many pass attempts but when you look back at the season and what he did on third down on the critical games to get them the number one seat he played lights out a big plays on third down? He's got a better passer rating than Patrick Mahomes does in the fourth quarter. Patrick Mahomes is better overall on third down. You know. And that's the quarter. That's the the fourth quarters the quarterbacks quarter third down at the quarterbacks place so they both are reflective of how successful their teams were in their place and by the way. Patrick bombs is twenty any foreign seven and thirty one games and Jimmy Garoppolo Jimmy Garoppolo as a starting quarterback is twenty one and five the winning quarterback numbers. Big numbers. How he did did it but I do? Toast them to GEOS point. Though I do hope for his sake that gets to get that it gets the temp about thirty passes and he throws about two hundred eighty five yards maybe two touchdowns and they win because I think if they throw more than that that means her in a high game shootout or high scoring shootout. And they're not GONNA do not GonNa last that it'd be if that does happen. If San Francisco wins a ball controlling type game it'll be interesting to see who the MVP plays out to be. It might be somebody on defense could be one of the running backs it could be. It could be kittle. It'd be interesting what happens with that. And you were in Cincinnati. Who Was Baltimore? The best defensive player Pittsburgh they were wanting to every year and they were always topping trapped defensive players of pain in the ass those teams. I know because I bright Paul Malo and ed read all those guys as they had. When you see the San Francisco Forty niners and you know what Patrick Mahomes is going to be faced with? Well how do you think he reacts. Yeah it it's different. I mean when you think back to those Baltimore teams with with Ray Lewis and Ed Reed in Terrell suggs in and then you think back to the Pittsburgh days in the zone blitz. What's different San Francisco's? They're doing with four guys that they're pushing the quarterback with four guys so they can double George biddle. They can double Emmanuel Sanders. Somebody's it can be one on one but they can double to two or three of their players outside because they create so much havoc upfront with just four guys getting after the quarterback. So it's something you know we. We saw it years ago in New England when they were playing the giants and the head Strahan. And Osi you. You're on all those guys up front where they rush for and double all. Brady's guys it's that good of a defense. It's that good of a front. That San Francisco has those Rob Salah Salah. Who has the whole Seattle background defense with? Ah Caroline DAN QUINN DOWN IN ATLANTA and everybody feels like they have the keys to locked that scheme of defence which has been exploited over and over and over again and Kinda got a little stale but what makes a scheme great or the players and let's face it. They got five former first. Round draft picks all along that defensive line top ten picks the first round picks top five picks. You really look at it. You know that that that defense is great because he just play cover one and cover three. It's really to coverage is a little bit the mix up on third down and you do a little bracketing in the red zone but really it's two very simple defense a single high zone in single high man and they did it forever in Seattle because they had you know Michael Bennett and cliff April rush in the past and they had Sherman. You know you go. You go across the board great players defensively. You've got the same thing going in San Francisco you've got great. Three players are playing. Cover one cover three brackets and the rest easy for the quarterback doesn't it there's there's nothing really to read. You know you know where you gotta go go with the ball but the problem is you got Joey Bosa so breathing down your neck to have the time to make the read and this is an athlete that can make the time and extend the time. That's one thing we've seen from Patrick. Mahomes it's been pretty impressive. It'll be impressive aggressive to see him do it against this defense. We've seen him do it. But against this kind of defense we'll see if he can do it against this defense talk. Carson Palmer is here on behalf of Fedex Aaron Ground Fedex Vettix GonNa make a twenty thousand dollar donation to the USO and the name of both a winning quarterback in running back totaling forty thousand dollars when you watch football and it's funny only watching boomer when he goes back and watch the film and he's pointing out to me and he totally gets into it. When you watch football is is it impossible for you to just sit back and watch the game or you just totally back and quarterback mode like that defense are running? This defensive. I do that as your mind going like it used to on the field when you're watching football these days. You can't quite do it when you're when you're watching you know alive alive game. You can't see the whole picture. It's the cameras on the quarterbacks facial tailback in the backfield or and so you don't get the whole perspective so it's hard to it's hard to really analyze it and look at it. I'm watching it like a fan. I'm watching you know. Former guys I played against or guys. I played with rooting for them. I'm rooting for my cardinals You don't get a chance to really evaluate and see the entire scheme that that's you know. The the defense is playing on every play. Because you're so transfixed the cameras on the quarterback of the cameras on the ball but I'm watching it like a fan i. I do like watching game cut ups and still will doing that. But I'm a fan now I I'm in my fantasy my fantasy my fantasy team I got my kids are cardinal fans So I'm watching it with my family not Bengal Fans Wash Bingo Games in Cardiff ring of honor. Guy For the bengals right inducted to that on the ring of Honor Yeah. It was awesome September against against the seahawks homes. Good job they put your name up and everything put. My name is really cool off school. Wait a second. There is no ring of honor. Oh really there was there is there is a ring of you that are not there is State Farm State Farm Stadium.

I am not going to allow. I am not going to tolerate. What is presently happening now? I gotTa let people take a look behind the scenes. And I'm GonNa tell you a story one thousand nine hundred ninety three when I was a cub reporter hungry and ambitious. Che's I was covering the Miami Marlins it seemed like A very important thing at the time to cover the first year of baseball in our market exceptionally finally major league and the amount of frenzy and the amount of chaos happening around. My work schedule was such that that I will yield out to a friend of mine. When does it end and we were three days in spring training three days into spring training on on the season one does it end and now it is Wednesday and I am looking in our studio and I am asking? When does it end? Because I have have the incongruent images of Chris Cody and a ridiculous car battery costume dancing happily. He will ask all our guest today. Some awful car specific Pun While in that costume is it hot in their credit to pump the brakes on the negative attitude. I'm revved up for today. So let's do it all right. Don't use all of your material yet. You look totally ridiculous but right in front of you are too panicked and seething thing people Roy I I'm not describing Roy as panicked. I'm not describing Mike as panicked. I'm describing both of them as seething and it is feeling to me like panic over here because Mike Ryan has been here since before golic and Wingo and honest to God. I did not know that there was a time I'm before Golic and Wingo. I thought the day started with WINCO aging at a disproportionate rate. Because he's doing morning television and they started our workday. They have to me in our lives. Golic and Wingo are the sunrise. I did not know there was a time before that but Mike Ryan was in this lonely studio before there was a happy car battery in it. Trying to get everything functioning from radio row. Where STUGOTZ'S STUGTOZ on radio row and I heard him not ninety seconds ago screaming into either either a telephone or a microphone? Why would we change the one thing that works ninety seconds before the show starts and it wouldn't be us if that's not what we did? We are calamity. I have no idea what's going to happen. Those are the line to Stugatz work. Today we have had years to plan for the Super Bowl in Miami not days not weeks not months. Do we have a functioning way to communicate at the worldwide leader in sports with Stugatz on radio. Row Yes or no we do not over the air there. Okay so you can communicate. They can communicate directly to him. But I have like I'll I'll put guys if you're listening. Hang on let me talk in the talkback guys as if you're listening. I'm going to Mike you in the event that you can hear us if I just pod you up or the mics are hot. Don't be cursing all right so they can't hear me though I don't know. Can you hear era. Can you hear US obviously not okay. Very good yes so what we explain to me please. You were here before Golick Lingo. The time now I was trying to be here before golic and Wingo because just like the difficulty and testing things because the plan was and it seemed fault after there was a disastrous test yesterday and and our plan was less test during the golic and wingo breaks. That's as you know five minute window. It didn't work out but I had an audio only option that was no matter what we we can communicate which was working fine and then they decided to change something and now. That's not working so I'm not having the greatest day giving off seething eating. I've been doing a lot of work on myself. Dan and if I'm giving off season the my therapist is going to be very upset with me. No on given all seating angering well. You're anger yesterday. Because yesterday yesterday it was proclaimed a total disaster by you And we had twenty four hours to fix it again super bowl. I think we've known for several years. Now that it would be in Miami this week you would think thank the worldwide leader in sports get functioning access to communication. I would think you would think that the number one show in terms of like podcast downloads. In the history of sports talk radio it would be able to test something outside of five minute windows and commercial breaks but I just a speed bump I we're GONNA get through this I have heard the analysts combat. ESPN and some of their analysis is so bad that I could say this with conviction. ESPN is supposed to be better at something than sports. There is a thing that they're good at sports but there's something better that they're supposed to be good at which is communicating ESPN. I know there's not a C. N.. ESPN but communicating is a very basic thing that espn you turn on your television. And their people are communicating. Think some of them were very bad very poor analysis. But it's getting to you the on a base level. We can get information no matter how bad it is we can get it to the audience. It's our only gift. It's what the Empire is built around in a real negative charge right now. We're GONNA need a positive charge with you all right. I'm already annoyed with the battery. The battery can go sit in the penalty box now the battle the battery can actually sit in the penalty box because there are only so many paths none of which working presently but now battery that the penalty box isn't working either. No because we have the penalty box path for the radio path which you can see on television like we have a camera camera shot there but just no way to communicate to them. Explained to me. Explain to me. Please how we're GONNA do a show today. First first of all it is maybe the most absurd thing I have seen in my time in this profession. The idea that all of ESPN has decided to be at this particular particular bar and janitors closet to produce all of its material today but I take his out there a pardon the interruptions other every damn person listen at ESPN is here by the pool near Dj. Cal It yeah. I can confirm that I take on the air so I don't know if they don't have communication problem. No because when I got here super early like their crew was here working and testing staff and it all seemed to work and not only that but they have a really nice spread downstairs downstairs. I saw maximum and have a Bagel as I was at time to eat a Bagel. But you know it's we roll with the punches. It is a little frustrating. That are we somehow. Get worse at this What do we have to do? And I'm sorry to the audience right now in advance. Where in the middle of Super Bowl Week? We're past advance dance. We should even though it's advance auto parts you thank you so much great sponsor job job you apologize in advance. Before things go haywire things have gone haywire they have gone haywire. But I'm going to apologize in advance for them going more haywire now by asking you and this is probably something that should have been handled. Generally in the meetings readings. How am I going to talk to Stugatz how I guarantee you his job today? I can guarantee you. You'll be able to talk to God's next commercial break because that's audio which I thought I had grip on but apparently that blew up in my face. Fifteen years of expertise in the in the field. Then I get them on during you know. What is the biggest week in our company? But you know we'll bounce back. It's not seething but it's it's math like it's really not angry. I'm just disappointed but you saw this coming. You told me it was gonNA. It happened last night. Yeah it's cool you know he's just show ever you know just normal biggest show ever problems as I think. Dan Patrick has an entire entire parking garage tombs. Who Does I was there yesterday? He's got he's got. Yeah he's at the seventh floor of one of the best use in the city built cow herd heard in like if you adjust for inflation is the same exact budget that James Cameron Hughes on Terminator Two Judgment Day. Wow and I can't talk to Mike All Right. Well who do I have to light up up like. I don't want to light up an intern. I don't WanNA light up a small production person like let's climb up the higher on the ladder. Who Do I have to go after your check? Engine light on really still here. I can't even kick you out. You guys are taking all of my freedoms honestly can't kick him out because that is such a hugh discuss punish him. I want to kick him out and ask them to try and get through a door. Ever see the sailboats inside the glass bottle you. You can't take it out of the bottle. That sort of what. The car battery is in that sort of specific corner is how hot is it in there. How uncomfortable you're going to be able to do three hours of this for those of you? Not Watching Ching on television. Chris Cody is wearing giant car battery to support advance auto parts one of our finest sponsors. They support everything we do around here. They're okay they're in on the joke with thus which is hard to find people who are in on the joke with us. How hot are you changed? My filters I'm good to go get Outta here. Just get out of here. Go sit in the penalty box Even if we can't televise it just I WANNA go watch for steak I go yes go down for. You could get do me a favor. Actually Chris do me a favor I I would like for you to use your ESPN credentials. Right now I want to see you in the back of the shot at some point of I take during the next segment. Okay figure out a way there every every ESPN executive is in town. Have someone lead you to a place where you can be seen their women in pool right now back there. See if you can stand near them. Let's see if we can infiltrate the set of I take care since we can't actually talk to anybody on radio DOT card mummy. You'll say listen. Listen Stugotz don't do and there's another poet Kennedy Visa Donlevatar show with. They're still God's on. ESPN radio before we get to Jorges Moss at all and welcome him in the baddest mother bleeper in MMA. He holds the belt and the official title before we get to him. I just want to God's for you to give me a general appraisal if you don't mind of what the scene is around you and furthermore what level of neurotic and fearful was billy the entire time he was with you doing nothing for a half hour trying to get everything rectified. Like what was his general condition. Addition I gotTa tell you. Billy was remarkably calm throughout the entire situation He was one of the few here. That was remarkably calm. I was surprised. No one what was more surprised than me. Because we know billy and I call the expected with you. It's expected the terms of setting the scene. Here listen it was just a mere three minutes ago where I was sitting ten feet away from Lee Steinberg writes in my left ear. I see Chris Simms. Mike Mike Florio is chat. Better Layoff Florio. Florio is Jack. We Got Mazda here and I am sitting very very very close close to Rod Woodson all right so a Mazda for being on with us. Do you agree with God's appraisal of Mike Florio is he indeed Jack as there's someone who comes from a world of the actually Jack so he's the guy sitting right next to Chris Simms. He's sitting to the right of the guy with the blonde hair. Yeah Yeah yeah pro. Football costs guys like Hokey. Jack Florio Oreos did you bring a CTO did do we have coffee to four Hor. Hey Moskva Dole Who's going to bring him some coffee? So he could get all jacked up. Billy can you do that so we have shots TV. Hey I heard you guys Shoots politic personally. No no no no no not today. Let's do padre. You can curse you did a great job of doing on Dupatta the ear salute you. You cannot do that or hey please try not to curse. Why aren't you wearing Any of the scarface gear. I thought for sure you'd be owning radio row with a closet full of white suits Owners would set up. You know I just Alfred get picked on in Emotions I guess when wake up I look through the through a clothes on the floor and then picked out. He's getting paid to where this that's a tough. He wants to get that paper today. I do like one and I do love this company. Also because they've kept my hands pretty good for a while now so I definitely do WanNa show him some love what company is is that a CD MD.. And they're amazing. Their products are amazing. Their third party tests is one of the few CD companies parties tested in quite often. So you guys like me and other professionals like firefighters and police officers can take the product now. Where about being mixed in such love and I just wanted to show them some love? How complicated it is the drug testing in your sport or like a lot of guys get hit with that stuff and you gotta be careful what it is in just how what has been your experience with the a UFC? Drug testing. Policy I I personally will take many supplements if that you know in the one that I do take the. CPI Center sends them to me. So if there's ever any Lebron's it's on them you know I don't take anything I don't I if I finish what we're GonNa have some that you drink in the teammate offers. Albany even take that because I don't know where that protein eighteen shake was manufactured and things like that I've never been flagged had anything weird mytalk never never steroid allegations. No nothing like that and I plan on keeping you. You've been here for two days. I saw you here yesterday. So the exploited reaction. It's sad what's happening. You know yesterday worked like a dog. They they told me five. PM Your Day's done with the Hemi here till ten when my was officially done and I still got a routine when I go home and she'll go to gym. I got a high jump in my hyperbaric chamber. GotTa right title Meditate Right. I take my medicine by the time. That's done this to thirty in the morning right every minute clock it in so when you commit your time to your boss whatever get paid every man. Oh time not. They don't pay us by the hour. If that's why that's why that's why you stay away from radio. I mean there are a million reasons. You stay away from Radio but if someone tells you you're GonNa be out of here by five you know you're not going to be out of here until ten o'clock at night. This is my first time yesterday. I was pretty. I mean I've been to some big press conferences. Same they got. I don't know how many hundreds of media members where's the. Where's the belt right now? I always wonder where's about like what do you do. They feel safe location. I gave it to my dad and my dad's initial thoughts were are.

We're not doing sitting my and I have my coffee ready to write another one coming for you. I mean that's how it works on a daily today it would take at least four seconds. Knock me out instead of the usual. Oh you're feeling lucky. Yeah uh can we examined for a second. Because I don't want to go very much further without this being talked about Hong Moss at all with us on. Espn Radio Oh the baddest mother bleeper anywhere in MMA by title by title belt Can we just examined for a moment that billy thought you punch the clock lock and were paid by the hour and we're going to a boss to say. Hey I did a workout today. Pay Me for that. We examine how little billie understand. It's somehow depends on occasion because sometimes they get paid by second You know I don't know if Ben Asher and Ben Dowana. I chose not to get paid our like this.

I believe remember revved up like a car that has an events autopart battery in You're being applauded for your ability to sell stuff. You mentioned meditation or Hey. I don't have a guy from the streets of Miami who who literally had to fight his way off the streets of Miami. I don't normally associate that with things like needing to quiet your mind with meditation station. When did you get into that? And what does it done for you while I've always done it since a kid. I just saw people try to put it in different lights and think that you have to be in a tabin addressing bedsheets and candles to meditate. That's that's not true. You can meditate anywhere in almost anytime. You just have to be able to clear your mind you know to awesome. I do a lot I mean I. It's interesting because before I fight before any of my fights. I am at my most comments that whole week. That whole week is a a lot of in a in a part of a lot of interviews Jim so you do have that adrenaline going through the body but a lot of it is just by myself.

But I want to ask any TESTAVERDE's how long he thinks it would take to poo powder legged. Oh I think he's been a conversation. I hope I never have to find out. Dan Something that would be a little painful. I think this is what Vela check. One said of Vinny Testaverde. The Guy could probably play linebacker. Defensive end running back quarterback we're back tight end safety. The Guy Probably could've played half the positions on the field. If that's where he had trained you agree with that many because you were a monster athlete at the position. Well I appreciate him saying that. You know back at my golf club. I was one day trying to tell the guys. This was recent Couple years ago now. Now that I'm in my mid fifties that I used to be a good athlete and then all of a sudden Guy Comes running into the clubhouse. One day he was a big Fan with his phone. And he's telling everybody yeah. Look at this article go on Testaverde Belichick said this. I was like I told you guys. I was a good athlete. He used to be a good athlete though I didn't know I was that good. He makes me sound better than what I was but I appreciate it and I appreciate appreciate him. Can you give us a good bradier. Bella check story from inside the bowels of the secret Patriot place where you spent only one season. Do you have a story that might surprise. Surprise people about Brady being something different than you see in front of the camera. Yeah no I I think is what you see from. Both of them is really what it is You know they they they definitely have been great for the Organization for each other. You Know I. I've listened to people say well can brady do or be as great is he was without Belichick and the same about bill without Brady. I think they both went super bowls. Maybe not six but If they were a part It's like the perfect storm at those those two guys and it's great to see it's great for football. And now we have some new young quarterbacks coming into the League and particularly in Pat Mahomes and Jimmy G. Vinny Testaverde with us. Hear me and billy out on radio with any of any looks great Dan. This is what I mean. He's in his mid fifties. He's always been sexy as hell. Yeah this is what you're supposed to look like it mid fifties. I mean I'm just that's me to you. But he was telling you the picture of fitness. I looked at tastic right now. Radio things are really picking up here. I tell you Dan. Gill branches walked by. But Vinny Testaverde with US Advani. You're telling me before we came on air here that you can throw the football three times so I'm wondering what's your shoulder obviously hertz. What's the body part that hurts? The most is a product of you playing for as long as you did well. It's the right shoulder shoulder as many passes. I don't want to just go out in the backyard and have catching my son and I have to throw lefty because if I do it. I'm all my aches and pains. It's just too much you you know. And plus I got to prepare and get ready for my golf game the next day. So I don't want to be too sore Diana sororities Diana Rossini is in with us. She's got a question for you before we get to real quick. Though I talked to Bernie Kosar one time about the air that you guys came up in the idea the playing on astroturf and his body is an unbelievable mess in terms. Sounds like an armone straighten. He's got all sorts of issues. Because of the era that you guys played in that was kind of pre safety. How has your body held old up against some of those things? Yeah for the most part. I feel pretty good Dan. You know I still try and work out and do something every morning just to stay loose and make sure those little injuries don't creep up on me because I know they're down there deep somewhere but the more active. You can stay as you get older the better you're gonNA feel. That's that's my belief. I've of any size to talk to you again. You know we make such a big deal out of bill. Belichick and bill parcells. We have did that documentary. But every time I watched that I always wondered. Do they really like each other. Just in your opinion do you think they like each other. Yeah I believe they do from what I've experienced short time I was there here. I think The the not only like each other they have a great deal of respect for each other. And what each one of them can do for the other I you know I don't have a bad word to say about either and Bill Belichick has been inspirational and very important my career. I was with him when he brought me to. The Cleveland Browns. He was the defensive coordinator with the jets and was inspirational. The bring me to to the jets under parcells and then. He brought me to New England for a year later in my career as an emergency quarterback when I was forty three years old I think who do you. You have to say a bad word about. I would like to hear all of the people on your list. You Played Two league. Give us some of the people that you do have to say a bad word about. There's there's some pretty it pretty nasty defenders I don. I don't like too much that I've faced in my career but you know for the most part The people I've been around played for You know teammates that were on the same team. They're all been pretty good. I've always had great relationships. Most of them now. It wasn't all perfect but for the most part you respect each other other and trying to accomplish the same goals what are you here on behalf of. What are you doing on radio row? Yeah so obviously this week Super Bowl Week. Big Game coming up Here in Miami Partnering With Straight Talk Wireless which is Prepaid no contract wireless service and Best Your Super Bowl fans streamed the games we live event and over seven and a half million devices and we hope that we get even more this year. Doing it was up twenty percent from two thousand eighteen. And if you're looking for more information you can go to Straighttalk Talk Dot Com. You're good any of any have to ask you Like many do you feel any and be honest here please. Do you feel any anger towards Dan. Over the whole pell grant anthem. Well well you know I wouldn't dance ball right. I didn't have anything to do with that. Exactly what you say something bad about your program. He didn't program the people responsible had something to do with it. But you know it's much as Dan we're hoping that he can can have a better second year and get things more in a head more in the direction that we all want it to be Vinnie. We pump the brakes. Six on. Patrick Mahomes is the goat. Well I in my opinion. I think he's the next phase of the NFL. He's pretty good. And as long as you know Andy Reed's is there and he keeps most of those players. They'RE GONNA make a run for a long time. I'm not saying they're going to beep Belichick Brady but It might be the next best thing then. You did a great job throughout your career. Vinny testaverde with us played across two decades. Did a great job of never saying the thing that would be controversial or be a spark your quarterback back leader. Who didn't do those sort of things? I want you now before you leave heart of what it is that you're doing to tell me who the Best University of Miami quarterback was the best l.. No no not. Well don't know I'm going to give you my honest answer and I'm going to go back to Jim Kelly. He's the guy that was. I looked up to that I was the freshman was a senior. He got hurt during his senior year but he was doing things right. I learned a lot from him. And if I had to take one quarterback to go back and play a national championship me and ship I would take Jim Kelly. The greatest athlete that you saw at the University of Miami was blank Albert Bentley. A lot of people. I don't know that name but he was a running back went on to play in the NFL. I believe with the Indianapolis Colts at the time and One of the greatest athletes that I ever have witnessed. You've got him ahead of highsmith ought is a lot of guys. Though good friend of mine he was a beast of a player but as far as pure athletes I think Albert Bentley was the guy Vinnie thank you for joining us. We appreciate time Sir. You Bet thanks for having me on. Thanks many benefits before we let you go. I do question sorry about that. The single most important thing the forty niners need to do to beat the GPS. Well they just need to keep playing great defense and get a new three and outs for the on the chiefs and Hopefully Jimmy G. and that offense can Put up a couple more points than they've been doing on average but you go back to the saints game and they put up. I think forty eight point so it's like they're like a chameleon they need they do what they need to do to win games. I can't believe what's the matter we should. I'm telling you. I only hope I can look this good at any any point in my life. Establish how you feel about any please stop leering. At any Ari next to him I am now. He's very very masculine. Thank you for being with us. been appreciated guys. Thank you very much expanded. Blink people I I am. We've got to get into this with Diana when we come back. How is it possible now? It's one thing for nobody to ask how stugatz doing when it's a phone interview. But how is it that he's in front of these people asking the cliche super from bowl. Question with a hiccup in at the town's like a seizure or a spasm and no one who's sitting next to him his commenting on it like just something simple like are you okay.

Remember you can listen to them enough time show featuring lenny and it is actually pretty informative football all show. She's one of the most informed football voices. There are on this network. It's really bad. Look for the football experts. We've really promoting this again. Like this is non stop stop. No that's ESPN. Daily hosted by mini. Cons gets a promotion. The meantime show featuring lenny doesn't get anywhere cast as she had Diane. Are you jealous of of menas. essent here as you to As you were just saying last segment you were saying that she would get a better obituary than you that it would be remembered more fondly than you are.

Perhaps we could do what it is that we discussed before the week began. And maybe we could start that podcast. You know I'm just waiting around. Lord hold on just a second because we have not made extraordinary radio in the last five minutes Mike. Are you looking longingly at Stephen Smith talking going to rick. Ross at the Pool Outside as we stumble around here and can't get audio. Is that what you're looking at as they're fascinated at Chris Simms and booms as they've called Bryant nineteen thousand a NFL. Julius this is it so the just the juxtaposition from what's going on downstairs. Which is a packed hacked house security of food spread catering Max Gilman Stephen a Smith Molly Karen and Rick Ross promoting what looks like actual Rosa? I feel really insignificant. I feel small cross. Write a book is a book in front of him. He did write a book to and I just feel like we don't don't matter anymore and I feel like our foothold on. Being the biggest radio show in America has been usurped. We have been steamrolled. There is going to be a lot of public controversy. I am going to cause when I turn on this network of Violently and start criticizing everybody publicly when this gets hold of me and I realized that they've trampled our entire environment as peon coming in visiting here and they've just trampled our entire environment. Get deep for a second the marching band and nowhere it has has. It's charm right. It's of course our show can't get it perfect because that's not funny but damn if I would want to be perfect just one day just just one day Eh. Loretta just walked on the set in the middle of the show. Not Realizing we're on the air. I didn't even notice. I mean it's perfect out here for me boomers Chris. Anyone one else there like you you you want me to come down there but sell it to me. Because I've been in radio roads. Christopher Mad Dog Russo is here I mean what half of the most legendary radio tandem in America Who London Fletcher is Rod? Woodson Hall of Famer Easier Robertson's always year. I'm Rob Watson lives on radio Who else are we have? Anthony Munoz Munoz mood yesterday. His fingers ear. They gotta get out of here. Have telling you it's all happening right here right now. Look now I make money moves. Mike would you do me a small favor during the break. Because I don't actually know this off of the top of my head ratings are not something that I have paid much attention to but can you tell me if highly questionable ratings are better than I takes ratings. Wow because I think they are impossible. I think they are not likely I. I don't think it's likely either but I actually think they are. I was surprised when someone told me that recently. I'm like they are. I'm just curious if ESPN is going to you know snap to attention and realize that they've come into our environment here and urinated all over can ask you a question about highly questionable seem Smith on highly questionable. One eight hundred flowers. He will be tonight on highly questionable behind us at the Cleveland or pool. By the way we have breaking news right now Stephen. A Smith is leaning forty niners. Oh my God what liberty. Here's a texture. Why did you poop on us Dan any little bit of success? A local team of ours has and you poop on us.

It's a small world which is obviously magical and great All I was saying to my mom is what's next what's next. I was thirty eight years old. These things live with our show with Stugatz on. ESPN radio so this is very exciting for me and truth be told at this point. This is no insult to Diana Rossini but we have basically done everything we can to parlay our relationship into this segment. That's coming up. It's why we want you around because it was such a giant hit with our fan base. You as your mother and so are you prepared because you go deep into character on this. This is not. This is not very good at it but this is not the normal work that you do at ESPN. I was hoping that you guys would want me on because some of my NFL reporting skills in some of the inside information. I've been able to gather in the eight years. I've been covering the league. But unfortunately this is turned into the Camille Rossini show And you know what if this is what the viewers listeners want. I feel like I have to give it to them. I do want to point out here that she's always fighting this NFL credibility and it's great personality that I know Oh lays beneath her. NFL credibility. Who's always fighting it? Why don't you tell Damn what happened when you saw Jimmy Garoppolo? What's the first thing he did he s for? NFL information it. Did he ask you to talk about your mom in that story.

SYSK Selects: Interpol: World Police

"Hey, everyone, you know, sometimes things don't go your way. But what really matters of the choices you make when the odds are against you. There's a new show on our network called the brink in host aerial Casten. Jonathan Strickland share the stories of entrepreneurs who took a bold step without really, knowing if solid ground would be on the other side. It's pretty great. You can learn about how a refugee from Vietnam turned a door to door business into a chili sauce empire about that. Listen and subscribe at apple podcasts or on the iheartradio app or wherever you listen to podcasts. Good morning everyone. I hope you've enjoyed your breakfast cereal your Saturday morning cartoons. And now it's time for a little learning from eighth ninth two thousand twelve my select pick for this week is INTERPOL colon world police because why not I never knew much about INTERPOL at all actually before we do this podcast. Now, learn quite a bit myself, and I think you will too. So if you haven't listened to it, I hope you enjoy it. If you have give it another world. Here we go with INTERPOL right now. Welcome team stuff. You should know from how stuff works dot com. Hey and welcome to the podcast. I'm Josh Clark does Charleston Chuck Bryant. And since you put the two of us together with microphones as we are. Now impressed records you get stuff. You should know. That's right. A little podcast just a little podcast squishy little podcast made silk. How are you, sir? I'm pretty good. You'll pay us. Please. What was that? I know into poll is that you sound like the little Asian man who gives the box to pinhead the man who eventually becomes pinhead watches y'all plaza. Well, then that's what I was doing. Good on my first good impression yet has INTERPOL written all over. Oh, yeah. He's got a he's an orange notice out on them. All betcha. Rian will get on that later. Chuck. Yes, I'm pretty much a hundred percent, sure. You had nothing to do with this. So you may not have heard about it. Okay. Back in two thousand eleven about this time March two thousand eleven INTERPOL the international police organization cracked a child. Pedophile ring. Nice. The m- the biggest one ever really centered on a website. I I guess appropriately enough called boilover dot net. Wow. Run out of Amsterdam boilover dot net is just a straight up legitimate gay porn site. But there is a forum there with like seventy thousand members with that like said, well, hey, you you're into this kind of thing to I got a video that you're gonna love, and I also have a little boy, I'm going to mail to you. So this wasn't affiliated with the website. No, they're just using one of the forums as a meeting place. For pedophile. But INTERPOL busted these guys up rescued two hundred and thirty kids arrested one hundred and eighty four suspects. Just in the first sweep they seem Liam Niessen it pretty much. Yeah. In thirty countries. Wow. Yeah. Good for them. It is good for them. It's just one of the many victories and triumphs over pederasty that INTERPOL combust. That's right and not just pederasty like all sorts of huge international crimes, anytime, there's a crime syndicate or a ring you need to watch out because Interpol's watching you into Paul is right behind you. What does your plan outside and this was actually fan generated this this game Facebook like three days ago? Oh, really? I wish I would have got the guy's name. Some kid was like, hey, can you do want to enter poll? Yeah. Sure. Are you sure he wasn't talking about the band? He might have been. Are they still around? Yeah. They're still around. Yeah. They are. Yeah. I don't I don't know what they're doing these days. I'm not a fan. So I don't know. How do you not like inner poll? I listen to their music and it didn't sit right in my ears. I'm surprised everybody liked dinner pole. Yeah. They're just good. Yeah. Yeah. You think all right INTERPOL, the international criminal police organization or icy? Peo or if you're in France where they're headquartered you might call it the organise. Organizatio Internationale de police criminal very nice, which is pretty much the same thing and different word order. I didn't know this but criminal is feminine. Oh, yeah. Yeah. I didn't realize that they like the, ladies guess, all right? So as you said, Josh, they are an international fully autonomous not affiliated with any single country right organization. I think they're a hundred and eighty six countries one hundred ninety now. Oh, really? Uh-huh. And they all contribute to the to the budget to the kitty based on their size, and their GDP and some other factors like crime. It's very it's very fair. Yeah. But it's very important. Like, you said that they're not beholden to anyone country, and that they remain neutral, and they don't they don't engage in any any investigations into political stuff. Yeah. Things contributing or being centered on race Moore religion, a try, man. My brain is now or can a day. That's all right. My brain is. So what they do. Josh. She just said what they don't do. They do terrorism. So I usually use terrorism like nobody else sexual abuse, especially with children. Yes, what you just talked about organized crime international, fugitives, computer, crime stolen, art, money laundering, human trafficking, illegal drugs smuggling environmental crime, anything that crosses international borders, yet almost you're gonna find INTERPOL helping helping out with. But you said the magic phrase helping out like INTERPOL doesn't have they don't run around like arresting guys. These guys it is INTERPOL, and they they don't have inner pull jail as a Grabowski points out. But what they do is they serve as this international meeting point for already established national agencies, right? Yeah. So let's let's do a little scenario. I'm FBI agent. Todd Ridgway of the demo- wins Iowa field office k and your agent Vinny Testaverde of the Pelissier dis- Dotto in Italy. And I believe a terrorist is hiding out near your field office in Genoa. So I'm calling you. I'm like ring ring. This is Todd Ridgway. I'm with the FBI and demoing. Hey, todd. This is then he tested them. Right. So and see what Chuck just demonstrated was how it doesn't work because Vinny Testaverde doesn't speak a lick of English and Todd Ridgway doesn't speak any Italian. Yeah. Right. And not only that he shouldn't have been calling Vinny Testaverde. He should have been calling to sippy debris killer. No. Who's with the local police? Yeah. Because that's what the Italian police bureaucracy protocol calls for. But Todd he has no. No. So what does he do? He calls into poed. That's right. And they step up, and they're like, you know, he need to get touch with you need to get in touch with Vinny testaverde's cousin who works for the state police over there the police right by Italy because they're who's handling this case, here's their number. In fact, let me go ahead and patch it through it. But not only that I'm going to I'm going to translate for you. Sure. Yeah. So there the inner poll INTERPOL has order called national Central Bureau smash country bureaus, no national Central Bureau NCB's, and that's like an FBI field office. But they haven't been different countries around the world, and they serve as liaisons for the local or state or national police with the same their counterparts in other countries. That's the big one. Yeah. It gets you know, when you it's it's complicated enough within these United States with jurisdictions to call. But when you open it up to the world, boy gets all kinds of crazy. So luckily into poll is there any peeing contest? Well, they probably try. To but should they exist? Sure. They're big deal is their databases because the FBI and the while they might all have like in whatever your country's databases are crime databases. They probably just extend to that country unless it's like some sort of database on terrorism. Right Interpol's databases are away. Extensive they circle the globe. And they can track criminals pretty much anywhere and everywhere fingerprints mugshots wanted people DNA you name it. They have a they have a database gist of lost track lost and stolen travel documents. Yeah. That's got more than like twelve million files to it. Yeah. I think that's all somewhere today to that. They said most people don't try and recover those which those interesting. Yeah. Well, I imagine like if you lose your passport you probably traveling abroad. And yeah, there's you're not getting that back. You never know unless you go. Yeah. Yeah. They can have your stuff because who knows? They could that could have been stolen to be used in some trafficking syndicate, it's true. And your name could be all drug all through the mud on boilover dot net. That's right. The the database that they are the database is that they maintain are their own, but they're open and their access through this communications that were called I twenty four seven that's gonna cool something because INTERPOL is they're open twenty four seven three sixty five even on Christmas. They're fully operational. Really? They don't close down like all the police do here on Christmas. No. Because think about it, man. Well, yes, I get your joke. But I mean think about the skeleton crews that go down I should interpose open all the time because they cross all all time zones. Sure at all times. Yeah. So they kind of have to be ready to go all the time because you know, well, one guy sleeping the criminals in one country are sleeping, they're wide awake and carrying out bad activities in another. That's true. What else can they do? Josh. Oh, they serve that. I. Twenty four seven is also a place where you can access another country's databases. Right. So this those those nationally bound databases become international through this. I twenty four seven portal and INTERPOL oversees all of that. Yep. So they know what's going on. They also let's say there's an international disaster of some sort like a terrorist attack assassination. They can send to incident response team. Yeah. Generally, coordinated through the UN if there's some sort of actually natural disaster like the soon NAMI efforts, they can send people down there to help identify people and look for missing persons protect kids 'cause I can guarantee you there are a lot of pedophile who traveled to Indonesia after that soon NAMI. That's right. That's crazy, man. I know this just that's awful imagine like losing your parents being seven suddenly an orphan. And then now there's some guy who's like, hey, you're coming to haul in with me. Right. You're like, no, I'm not. He's like, yeah. You really are. Oh, you understand what he's saying? He just offers you the Lally, right. An a car ride. Yeah. Yeah. Very sad. But thanks to INTERPOL. Things like that are being thwarted. I saw there's two types of incident response teams. They have the criminal type and the disaster type. Yeah. And but they both serve in an advisory capacity and the show up with their database, right? Like, I can get you in twenty four seven you need me. They can act as a central command, though, if local authorities say, hey, we need your help tack to central command. Help us out with logistics think the grabs her said in two thousand five they did that twelve times. Yeah. Once a month, not bad dust off the old working choose. Yeah. Like get on the field. Time to get out of bed. How's it structure? Josh. Well, I'll tell you. Uh-huh. Interpol is made up of general assembly in which each of the member nations has one delegate and one vote. Thanks, a lot of sense. They meet once a year, and they vote on all the big stuff, which kind of makes it a slow lumbering bureaucracy, unless they invest a lot of authority into the executive committee, which is a thirteen member committee that basically carries out all the administrative functions of INTERPOL, and they are elected. But as is the secretary general, although it says in here pointed I saw elected. Oh, yeah. Yeah. No. He's elected because I saw this guy. Ronald k noble. Uh-huh. He will. He got an overwhelming real edgy of the vote for his second reelection. So he's in his third term. Yeah. First time ever. Yeah. Which is I think he's running from two thousand ten to twenty fifteen. Under this current term. Yeah. And he is the first American secretary general from that mistaken. Right. Yeah. And he's the first three times secretary general to then a lot of Frenchies. I think that's all one Englishman. Yup. And those definitely one German because there was some controversy with that. I believe the president is Korean now. Oh, really, okay. Not to be confused with the secretary general, right? The president is beneath him right to the secretary general is who actually runs the day to day show. Right. And he's headquartered in the general secretariat, which is the main headquarters in Leon France. That's right. And then there's other there's regional offices are six of them the sixth of which is in New York, and that's the special liaise under the UN because INTERPOL very wisely. Got him with the UN began like this body has some staying power. That's right. We're going to become friendly with them. You can also find these place. Offices in Argentina, El Salvador Thailand. Kenya? Zimbabwe and Cote d'ivoire, very nice. Thank you. Did you practice at? No. I just lovely name that I've said it many just rolls. The myself. I means the coast d'ivoire in French, okay? Hey, everybody, we want to tell you about American financing, a family owned national mortgage banker that has been in business since nineteen ninety nine Yemen. Gotta tell you I actually went to Denver Colorado and sat down with their CEO and met people who work there, and they are legit family owned. He and his wife started this business in their kitchen almost twenty years ago. And I gotta tell you everyone that works. There is great and they're really doing things a little bit differently. Yeah. They are different. They're different because everybody at American financing is a salary based employees, which means that you get a dedicated mortgage consultant who guides you through the loan process. But since they don't make commission. There's no pressure. There's no up selling. There's no obligation. All they want to do is help you get a mortgage or get a refi or to consolidate your credit card debt, whatever you need from them. Yeah. Man, they are legit one of the most customer friendly businesses. I've encountered they really really care about putting the customer first, they work. Fast takes just ten minutes to pre qualify for a mortgage, and they can close on a new loan as little as ten days. That's not fast. That's lightning-fast Charles. It really is. Plus, they're open on nights and weekends. You can call him anytime. Call eight eight eight nine nine five twenty four forty or just visit American financing dot net slash stuff. They will hook you up. American financing in MLS one eight two three three four WWW dot M. L S consumer access dot org. You mentioned that we all all member countries. Chip in for the budget on the budget is not a lot though compared to like any budget in the United States think in two thousand seven the grab stir pointed it at roughly sixty one million dollars US were forty four million euros which sequel to now. Seven dollars to two thousand eleven but it's a big change. I should've looked up the current budget. Actually. Yes. You should able to Tokay Chuck. Let's talk about the notices. So this is there other big thing. They don't just sit around and wait to be asked for help. They also disseminate information, and they do it through color coded notices. They've got let's see what is that nine eight seven. Okay. So they have eight now because they added another one after this after this, even yes. Oh, wow. And the different color codes mean different things. So you're going to get via teletype possibly facts or maybe even Email. Yeah, you'll get like some sort of maybe a PDF document of say orange, basically says like, hey, we've got a pretty we have pretty good idea that there's an imminent threat. And it's this guy and he's wearing this coat, and he's got dirty bomb. Yeah. So that if you get an orange one your head better perk up, and you need to look closely. That's right. Black is unidentified bodies to say this to satisfy notices yellow missing persons. Yep. It's probably the second sadness. Green general information and warnings about major criminals. So this one is kind of it pretty vague. Well, highlights another function that they have that wasn't explicitly stated in this article that I gleaned using my powers of deduction that they have analysts who crunch all this data who poured through databases, you're kicked crime trends, look at criminal trends, and then come up with basically just general notices when they're sitting around with some time on their hands. They issue green notices that say like, hey, here's another angle to a case that you might not have thought of interesting. Have you met this guy? Here's all the bad stuff. He's done. He may be a new neighborhood. Right. That kind of thing and the local authorities say, yeah, INTERPOL, we we know you got some time on your hands. Very nice. Thank you the blue notice. Josh is individuals of interest related to a crime, including possible witnesses or suspects or persons of interest is a good umbrella term for those kinds of people from that's already been who ran with the wrong crowd where at the wrong place in the wrong time and didn't stick around on an international level. That's right. Read recently, Mr. Julian Assange, was issued the red notice which means you are wanted, and it's sort of like, a worldwide APB, you gotta keep that you printed out and put it on your wall. What a red INTERPOL notice on you. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Gotcha. Although although sci-fi wasn't to find his all, but he kept his I'll bet he's one of the few who did with Photoshop though. I mean, you can never tell if it's real or not like you or I could make our own. I mean, we should do that. Why not I have a feeling ones? Come. Yeah. Interpol notice which not a color. That was scary to me because it was the only one that's not a color unless the new one. You talked about is not a color. It's a Kelly. Okay. The INTERPOL notice means it's a UN Security Council special noticed, meaning groups of individuals involved with al-qaeda or the Taliban or at work. Yeah. People who have you and sanctions on them. Yeah. Then there's now the purple notice, which basically it's kind of like a green notice it's like, hey, be aware of this kind of stuff that's going on. But it's about what people are doing like international criminal translate. Do you remember I think they're like pin guns? There is like a just a few years back. There was like a pen that could shoot, and it was a very low powered, but I think INTERPOL sent out a notice on this like, hey, you guys need to where this things out there. I just love it in a movie. Okay. Well, INTERPOL probably inspire. The writer interesting. It was a comedy too. I guarantee INTERPOL inspired the writer is pretty funny. It was Fred Fred ward fed water. Fred Willard, Fred ward. Okay. The the the time writer Remo William. Yeah. Okay. He had he had a pin gun and shot at doing the neck. It's gonna bunny what movie was thirty minutes or less with Danny McBride. And it was good. The guy who played Facebook. Late Facebook, Mark sucker bird. Yeah. The Jesse Eisenberg. They're both in that. It was sort of funny, but not highly recommended, but that scene was funny because Fred Willard's like, you think it's a pen and all of a sudden need to shoot the student the neck with it. That's funny. Yeah. It's high comedy was very much. I I watched insight may and again last night this such a good movie, which ones that Spike Lee, heist movie with Clive Owen never saw that to really. Yeah. You hadn't seen it either. I made it watch last. She's like this movie. That's one of the few Spike Lee movies. I have not seen. It's see that. All right. Have you seen twenty fifth hour? Yeah. That's a given to. Yeah. I think inside man hasn't been. All right. So yeah, purple. It's just basically like information on new types of criminal activity that people need to be made aware of like pen guns. Gotcha in Fred ward. But depend gun was a real warning a real purple warning notice. I don't know. I'm just assuming I'm oh sample. Gotcha. So let's talk about the history of INTERPOL Chuck has a strange tumultuous history. That closely follows the Tumblety of the twentieth. Century fast me. Yeah. Ed kind of breeze right over the whole Nazi part of it. Yeah. There's been a lot of controversy over that. Actually. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Why are they accused of colluding? Well, let's back up nineteen Twenty-three. There were formed and being Austria during World War Two Ed says they were interrupted when the Nazis took control deposes secretary general move to Berlin for short time. But then after the war everything was rebuilt in moved to Paris. And that's kind of all he said, I looked a little further into it. And it's pretty pretty controversial those years when it was under Nazi rule, obviously they shared headquarters with the Gestapo officially operated as a division within the Nazi security police into Nazi workum animals. Were the agency's presidents during the wartime. Plus they overspent on Christmas parties. And then this red at times article in some of the comments back to the editorial said you guys even kind of whitewashed it because after the war they refuse to take part in the sixties and seventies in any of the Nazi war crime hunting worker middle hunts. Crazy. Well, I had no idea took them. Really glad you did this. Yeah. And then in nineteen sixty eight their president to seventy two was Paul dick up, and he was an SS officer. No, he was and remained president despite them finding out about this and knowing about this, and that was pretty controversial disease. I'll bet you don't usually want Nazis leading your organization former Nazis either. No, you know, what I'm saying. Once a Nazi always in not in my opinion. Well, dip Cup was the he was the president for over four years. Yeah. Wow. And a lot of people a lot of people say INTERPOL as like run without oversight. And they have all this access. But no one has access to their real like how they do things. The opposite of how Grabowski tells them. Yes. A little more controversial than I thought when start poking around. Well, I guess it was probably the VHS tapes started to bring him out of the dark and into I guess a brighter role member the INTERPOL warning on old video cassettes now was that interval. Oh, yeah. Now, it's like an FBI worrying, but before and every once in a while, you'll still see it like INTERPOL warning to copyright theft and piracy well, but yeah, apparently, they now are they've shut themselves of Nazis and have a third term secretary general who's busting pedophile 's name Stor damn. And did you pretty I think that's good. I'm saying, no, yeah. Yeah. They they've apparently tried to clean up their image a lot since those days is crazy, man. And you did you hear about the executive order Obama signed in oh nine it was pretty controversial among conservatives. Because. Little background, the international organization and immunities act in nineteen forty five was signed into law in basically that mitt the president could say certain organizations international organizations that worked in the US are exempted from certain things like taxes search and seizure laws and pretty much. Every president has said you can be a part of this like the Red Cross Reagan in one thousand nine hundred three included INTERPOL as part of that group songs like four different sections dealing with property taxes, social security, federal taxes customs duties and having property and assets searched and confiscated than an nine Obama said those four things now your immune from as well. So you have full immunity INTERPOL does in the United States from these things and conservatives got up in arms about you know. The fact that Obama had signed this. They tend to get up in arms about anything. Things like his his dinner checking, but then people rallied back and said, well, you know, I thought you wanted someone tough on crime, and he's basically saying INTERPOL has more rights to do their thing in the United States. So which way do you want it or do you just want to complain about everything he does? And the Obama administration said that you know, what this really didn't give them any more free reign than Reagan had already given them eighty three. It is sort of finished up what he started. So. Who knows regard, regardless of which side you sit on on the local Obama is the new Reagan the end. This is one of the coolest things I've said, no, I'll Chuck romburg. Andy has podcast. He does. I wasn't doing yesterday. I love it. It's funny, man. Could you not? Yeah. I love that character so much, and we're really excited that Ron decided to join our little network and recording out there in our Hollywood studio. Those guys are so lucky. Yeah. See Mr. burgundy and action which is weird because he's from San Diego. Does he go up to LA to record? He does. Okay. And actually apparently one of that besides it's coming up, the San Diego chicken is traveling with the LA to have the conversation. Yeah. It's all the run burgundy. No in love. Everyone conversations that have a tendency to go off the rails. And you're gonna find out a lot of things that you probably never wanted to know about the man, right? But he's trying to be modern, you know, he's addresses things like true crime and bullying share, basically he's trying to just answer the ultimate question. Which is what is. And cast run burgundy style. So you can listen in subscribe to the romburg any podcast on the iheartradio app on apple podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts, and you are going to love it. You got anymore. So some successes you talked about NAMI in two thousand and fuller that was one and yet you're pedophile scenario. It's pretty big not yours thirty countries. That's pretty huge. They helped addenda FAI and capture a Serbian war criminal Milan. Lukic Luchik Lukic Betty Lucas in Argentina coordinating between Argentina and Chile and Bosnia Herzegovina nice. Yeah. Let's see the they also had one you remember the Madrid train bombings. And I'd forgotten about those two thousand four killed one hundred ninety people and they managed to catch at least one guy they they found twenty one guilty, but INTERPOL caught at least one guy through coordination between bell grad Baghdad and Madrid off. Offices. And did you know the twenty one people who are found guilty of that kind of combined forty thousand years in prison. Really? Yeah. He'll never get out. No, no. I don't think they're going to and then grabs pointed this out response team obtain disseminated fingerprints and photographs of Abhu Saab L Cali. Yeah. Which sounds kind of whatever. But then you like, oh, yeah. How would you get that guys? I guess so. Yeah, that's the same thing. And then I thought twice I guess that is pretty big deal. Yeah. It's worth mentioning. Oh, sure. I didn't find a lot of stuff though. I searched for more. Yeah. Same here. And I think they're sort of behind the scenes they're like, we're not gonna have any big arrests because we don't do that. But we're involved in a lot of those on the back end on their website, which is a pretty cool user friendly website. Agreed. It's like here's a lot of information. That's very vague. Yeah. Like, we have two kinds of response teams criminal in disaster. That's all we're going to say about that kind of thing. And you know, I'm interested to hear if anyone knows anymore about their controversies. I'm curious does your dad work at INTERPOL? We wanna now into po- you got anything else. So if you wanna learn more about inner poll in and read a very glowing review of their life and work very glossy whitewashed review, you can type in INTERPOL, I N T E R P O L. And did we say where they got the name don't think we did. I don't think. So. So with the advent of telegraph communication. They're like man, we need to we need to shorten this or else. People aren't going to waste the money with Western Union talking about us. Right. So this shortened their name to INTERPOL instead of the longer. I c o p they should just call ICMP. Yeah. I cup. Yeah. Ooh. Yeah. Yeah. Well, don't type I guess you could type I cop into the search probably some MAC apple app. Now that allows. You to like make citizens? That's a good one. Thanks. We should go make that. Yeah. Type I cop in the search bar house. And I said search bar just in you know, it which means it's time listener mill. Joshua, call this. Brewer anheuser-busch? Wow. It's a big big time big daddy's. Hey, guys. Just finished listening to beer Bod cast and felt compelled to write used to live in Atlanta and miss the beer senior, I dream of the brick store pub every third night. I'm a beer geek home brewer also happening now brew beer for Anheuser-Busch. Also now known as AB inbev has mentioned in the podcasts. It's pretty sweet gig. That all started for me by home brewing in my Atlanta apartment closet. Crazy. I enjoyed the podcast a lot, and you were pretty spot on with the info and brewing. One on one. Except for the mention of forced carbonation I have worked because I think we said that that the big breweries like force carbonate, everything not. So I've worked in a couple of crapper. Res aside from my current job at Anheuser Busch. And I had never seen this before I can't speak for the other big guys. But our beer at an hearts Anheuser-Busch is made pretty much the same way. As other small craft beers. We just have much larger equipment and more automated at Anheuser Busch after primary fermentation our beers are logged in a tank for as long as twenty one days in the case of the famous. Budweiser. I've heard of that twenty one days during the aging process. The beer is still firm slightly and builds up CO two in the tank. This is how our beer is carbonated all natural similar to the priming Homebrew in bottles. And that's it. He says have a four twenty on me. And I'll pick up the tab next in Atlanta. No, you send us the money first. And then we'll go have four twenty on you. That's what I say. David. Thanks, David reprinting, advance the money, you'll send us for four twenties. Yes. And also I wanted to point out when we're talking about our favorite beers. I was sort of snobby with all my as and all that stuff. I do all that. But the triumvirate for me has been my staple since college. Which is Budweiser Miller highlight and Papp's. Yeah. Like all those funds, and I don't drink those as much anymore because I love the taste of like a delicious. I b but I certainly don't turn my nose up at Budweiser. Okay. Well, then you're definitely not a beer you drink you. Remember those kids in college. You know, anybody in college you could recite what it said on the net label of the Budweiser bottle. Like what it says the writing? I didn't know anyone that's like that. This is Budweiser. The finest beer ever produced dot used to go school with kids who could recite that like by heart is thought it was kind of sad. Yeah. I didn't even know I've never even read the bottle. It's easier. If you have like a beach towel, his the lettering way bigger, and you can see. You can see. Oh and also got called out by fan for being a hipster for drinking caps. Then was like, dude. Yeah. I've been drinking PBR since like nineteen Ninety-three and it amused me. When it became a hipster beer. I was like really it. Plus, my mind how much we share selves, and how much we have in the four hundred plus episodes, and there's so many people out there who do not know us at all. Yeah. So I guess a few one offer us money for beer, that's cool or you can just send us beer. We're not them with that. Call out yet. I'm not a Shane over money. Sure.

Why Did MJ Play Baseball?

Jalen and Jacoby

Why Did MJ Play Baseball?

"It is Jalen Anthony rose. What up dog. I'm still Jacoby on the cool check in together. We are generally what is it? We do people what they want. Jalen yours accused me of doing one thing doing what you call the media thing in reading way too much into sort of perceived slights or small morsels of mediating dramatic mountains out of those morsels. That's exactly what I'm GonNa do right now because Tom Brady a farewell leather letter in the player's Tribune yesterday. And had some really interesting passages the first one I want to discuss with you is. This is Tom Quotes playing for the Tampa. Bay buccaneers is a change a challenge in opportunity deleted collaborate and also to be seen and heard. Jalen some tells me that he was also seen in Hereford with He. Wouldn't all of those super bowls? Some tells me there was no shortage of seeing or hearing. Tom Brady whatever you want to see or hear Tom Brady. So some tells me that this was not to be seen and heard by the public with this is the way to be seen in her by the organization Jalen. Even you have to admit there's something to this eerie that was shot at the New England. Patriots well we don't have to look further than Understan- and he played there twenty years and went to the Super Bowl nine times one six of those and they didn't allow him to have a farewell tour with their uniform on because if they would offer him the same fifty million dollar contract he was still being doing so basically what this boils down to is Tampa Bay gave him a level of fiscal and emotional security because he's going there for the first time versus what he felt that he should have been able to attain being a member of the Patriots for so very long. But that's unfortunately what happens to us. Athletes so many professions that you could do later in your life even an artist for example. He can reform the same records countless times. Even if you can't dance the same you can sit down. Start to music. People still come to your concert. Well when you're an athlete there's an expiration date and Tom Brady. Andrew Breeze. Continue to defy that so now if you're an organization. How far are you willing to let that go? Would you overpay Tom Brady? That's GonNa be forty-three this year. Allegedly overpay that. Because you're basically saying he's not going to be an elite quarterback. How do you feel about that? David Jacoby I like what both sides did businesswise. If I'm I'm not giving two years. Fifty million guaranteed either time but it just went career. Oh I like it because first of all I care about me. I not Tom Brady Pages. And this is great for me. This is me watching more buccaneers. Even that I see the my entire life not in the Super Bowl or the championship round. I will tire buccaneers game from start to finish honestly ever since Vinny Testaverde. The buccaneers quarterback has not been this relevant. And I couldn't be happier about it however I would like to see him retire in that in that Jersey. If I'm Tom Brady is a part of him. That feels somewhat slighted. There was a lot of incidents over time. You know this deflate gate. Where he felt like the franchise didn't really have is back and there's a personnel decisions especially the wide receiver position that wish differently but he also has another passage in this that. I'm going to do what you call the media thing and reach into. And that is based on his relationship with jumping by the name of Bill. The two of them as you mentioned went to nine super bowls and won six together. And here's the only time bell. Check was mentioned quote by the way in the sixth round. It's not like Coachella. Check himself was on the other end of the line. I think it was his assistant. Burge quote we just wanted to let you know you've been picked by the New England Patriots Byrd said. That's what Tom Brady wrote in the players. Now that is not so much of a slight that's normal sort of modus operandi for six round. Pick however with he thanked. The crafts thanked the fans. Emily thank the organization everything. His teammates coaches. He never wants thanks by name. John by the name of Bill Belichick Jalen again. You can't say I'm doing the media thing by readings ridiculous US bill. Belichick and Robert Kraft and I'm ready for the three headed monster. The try to that fueled this dynasty for over a decade and uniquely. I like how Robert Kraft as the boss made those two guys out in Sandlot while he stay clear because he writes checks to both of them because wild belichick in theory is got. It makes the football decision. Robert Kraft is the owner of the team so therefore if he would've really wanted. Tom Brady to have a few years on his contract and a couple of Zeros in his account he could made it half okay so I appreciate the level of business separation that the Patriots basically set up because normally unlike Dallas. If this was a scenario like that people will be mad at Gerry or going to talk the hell. What did you England? It's Bila check that has to be the bad guy. I like that line of demarcation. I think every side really got what they wanted. Robert Kraft Leaves Clean Without Brady. Be Mad at him. Brady the Michigan Man. Just to articulate himself and be motivated on how he's going to go to Tampa Bay NBA game sabre for them and their bill. Belichick is not going to comment on. None of this is just go. Worry about the draft and putting together next year team. Well it should be worried about the quarterback position. But something tells me he'll be more to report on that as news breaks in the NFL but Jalen some news did break today in the NFL. I purposely have not seen what I'm about to show you. I've been very busy with the kids in the courts. You prepping the show. But I'm about to show you what has been unveiled today this afternoon as you. Tampa Bay buccaneers new uniforms. They look at those. You're like me Your Voice. See a difference expected a bigger splash. That's no that's new right there. Everything else seemed like y'all uniform. I couldn't even say the difference. Well let me tell you what the Tampa Bay buccaneers are doing again. They used to be in the same division as the Lions and I'll follow this franchise struggle and I love their old school uniforms in their helmets for classic. But as this franchise progressed. They're channeling the Tampa Bay buccaneer teams. That were actually successful. Boris out Terry Rooks. That's with those uniforms. Look mostly like the squad. Tony Dungy built at ultimately was taken to the Super Bowl and won the super bowl after he left and so with Jon Gruden so based on that. That's what I see them doing. They get narrow old thing now. It's at a temporary. Buccaneers are not a not a not exactly a winning franchise national football released. They have that one year the Detroit is. They have like one year. They can look back like that. You only have one year where you want. Do Playoff Games. We're not gonNA talk about the lines anymore because we have to move on to some sports. That might actually happen. I'm not sure that they should and I'm talking about the UFC UFC. Two forty nine scheduled to be ready so three soon. And here's why Dana White said about a potential venue. The does on continue to pump flights. I've also secured an island. I've got an island. The infrastructure is being built right. Now we're going to do all of our international flights on assignment so when April eighteenth when we do this fight on April eighteenth international and local in the United States. We're GONNA START CRANKING THE UFC will be back up and running internationally and him so. Let me get district. They don't what's GonNa hold a fighting tournament on a private island isolation in uncharted international waters? This sounds like a really bad mentioned. Eighty six Schwarzenegger film. Sounds like you know what is happening. Big Number One. He should be pursuing this number two. This will actually have it. Sounds like a skit from scarface. They didn't make the movie. I feel like Dana White. Who bought a way of dealing with a lot and I know you probably heard about the extortion attempt that he's trying to fight off right now where there was a a boyfriend girlfriend couple and they basically set him up to have sex with her and recorded it and then turned around to ask them for four hundred thousand dollars. Alleged allegedly Nayna. Why is the kind of leader of the UFC? He likes we get in this bread by all means necessary. We getting this bread. I don't care if Corentin I'll care if I had to go on an island. You know what he should reach out to a good friend of mine. That has some real estate somewhere. David Jacoby your member. You told me days were happening. Space and other planets. Where where's that now? This where is that? Now there's no governing bodies there's no regulations you deeds allow. Musk the fly on the space station. And you'd have the rest of the UFC fighting space will just SAGINAW BAY NO AIRBORNE TORONTO VIRUSES. Basement that air in space. Either Jalen that is why you on the phone. You tell me that you're a marketing genius and right now. You're seeing the marketing genius. That is Jalen rose. If you're the private island descent Elon Musk. You will get you a nice space station for you in those fighters to actually fight him so Jalen we are every day. We are one day closer from the debut of the last dance documentary about Michael Jordan. Ten episodes debuting on April nineteenth. So we will everyday give you an update. It is happened last dance copter. We've discussed allow different legacies like things that Michael Jordan's associated with so far this countdown. We spoke about his sneakers. Spoke About Scotty. Pippin yesterday and today. This one's interesting. The Greatest Basketball Player of all time. Strata stopped playing basketball and the southern playing professional baseball so Jalen during that period. I know you're paying attention why I know that you don't know the real reason. Why do you think Michael? Jeff Jordan stopped playing basketball the peak of his powers and tried to Baseball player. Well there are a few urban legends stories about this that I won't foster publicly because they include the tragedy. That was his father being murdered very unfortunate. Very sad how it went down for those. That don't know he basically was killed while he was sitting on the side of a role taking a drive and trying to get arrest and aunt after he was murdered Jordan said publicly that he and his father always had a goal in a dream for him to play professional baseball. And when you lose someone so very close to you like that. I'm pretty sure he needed a motion or escape and if the sport was baseball that he and his father bonded over in felt like that would be something that he should try. And then all of a sudden you lose the way he did that. Provided a different motivation for somebody at that period of time was already considered the greatest of all time. See a lot of people are going to try to leapfrog Lebron to this conversation. Let me just tell you got some. How many how many rings the Braga Championship Rings? She has three. How many did he win in a row? Two okay when I started to separate all time. Great players one of the things. I just have to try to do is say okay. How many did they win in a row? How many of those were the two finals? Mvp like you have to split hairs. With the all time greats. He had already won three straight and three finals. Mvp's nobody else can say except Shank in the modern day but Jalen that's more you're making a case of why he should continue to play. Basketball is on one of the greatest teams ever assembled. He's won three straight. He's one miles in three straight. He's one of the most competitive human beings is ever walked the planet earth. Why go switch sports because you ignore the score of the game which he was already considered the greatest at that time in the game of life that I initiated and will also help make that happen? Is the Bulls owner? Jerry REINSDORF also owns the white sox so that provided a a bridge that you could go play baseball but we still have your basketball rights. Plus we'll make sure you get the opportunity and we're GONNA cut through any red tape for it to happen so it was almost a win win for non NBA essential for that to happen as related to the ownership of the team and for him to get that opportunity that he wanted and so it was a firestorm and they left the League Wide Open. Remember I was in the lead. That was my first year. Ninety four was my first year. It was like the wild wild west that. Mj JAYCO everybody trying to get a ring. Now is like in a dream came snatch two of real quick. We're MJ was out of the game. It did he came back for all you historians in one three more in a row. This is how you distinguish yourself away from everybody else and you know who was finals. Mvp All six of those times. Mike Labrador. I've seen magic when five. It's shack win four Kareem win six. Tim Duncan win five the Brian Three and three shack three finals. Mvp's Tim Duncan has three like you have to start splitting these all time. Great players and Bill Russell. Obviously they didn't have the award when he wanted. Because he did when eleven championships. Thirteen years worth the first African American coach and player at the same time so these guys have achieved so very much. But there's only one goal and you're going to see him on April nineteen be featured in a ten part series Jaylen because we are very serious sports journalists who covered important story yesterday as regards to the corona virus a gentleman by the name of Kyle Walker soccer player overseas in the UK put out some social media reminders for people that practice social distancing. Stay away from each other and He then hired escorts had threesome at his house. You know that for a fact that some of the young lady involved started spoke to the press about it. It's probably true because what we solve next was an apology from that men. Right there cow Walker. He said the following quote I understand. Position is professional footballer. Raise the responsibility of being a role model as such. I want to apologize to my family. Friends football club supporters and the public letting them down. Jalen rose what do you think about? Kyle walkers apology and is this apology. Admission of guilt because if I was locker I'm not gone Johnson for anything until you catch me. Read well at the end of the statement. He should've put except my newest followed. Jalen rose added that line. Because this is reverse discrimination and a lot of ways. Let me tell you why so. Let me get this right. You work in the porn industry. Or you're an escort. I do a business transaction with you and another young lady. Y'All people that are leaking it. That's against all rules of the industry. So I would call on this one and I know for public is such. He had apologize. He has family in France and he's a professional. You want to be a standup guy. But he really mean it either. You had nothing to do. Close all of them. They had to apologize for the club. Wrote the apology said you're about tennis? Yes he was like. Is like you know what I WANNA do this. You're about to do this because you WANNA get paid. And he was like fine. Whatever I slept through the text read between him and the girl which the press about this. That's what I WANNA see. That's what I want to see. Because he said in eastern all emojis heard Rexiti so mad that he could do. He'll probably another those against streetside talking about Smart Kyle Walker doing your best to the Corinthian. We need to get him on the shell. Don't we don't know let's lay low. I think Colorado should probably go. I don't we don't need to go look for. He'll need to go on a book tour right now. Don't need lay low weight to soccer comes back with no fans and that he can start dealing with that now in seriousness. At some point soccer is gonNA come back and there will be phased its up point and abused once you start in won't the MLB has now decided one thing once in either looking into this has happened. Many leagues that we hear about snarling into them here by not another one the latest as potentially starting the season in Arizona in isolation. So what this means is that they're in talks for a May return which is braised though a May return in Arizona. There is of course where the diamondbacks fled Iraq. Ten other stadiums where they could hold games where teams would be tested new playing isolation without fans. Jalen I know every Commissioner League is texting incessantly every day asking for advice. So now the Silence Commissioner of Major League Baseball Manfred. He's calling Jeff Amazon idea to go work if you can't make it happen. The sacrifice is going to be for the players to separate themselves from their families and friends. And here's what I'll say to the public a lot of times when you make sacrifices to become a professional they all just start when you eventually collect checks they happen your entire career leading up to that certain sacrifices you have to make so as an athlete already understood that I was GonNa Miss Certain holidays Thanksgiving and Christmas as your kids birthdays. And probably the first day of school or there that you're going to miss for your profession or as a parent in so these checks. Are The reason your kids go to private school and or live in the suburbs so therefore. I'm pretty sure the players are gonna be willing to play the game that they love they. Love can continue to collect their checks and not baulk an opportunity by major league baseball to put them in position to play their games. This year shot the Chuck D. It just reminded me of something a when my favorite emcees were teaching me. Something are never forget this in a by the time I get Sarah Zona because they were the final place that adopted the Mlk Day as a holiday. And I got a chance to play their my final season. Beautiful people but Shout to chuck for that but absolutely if you can do we'll do make it happen of you want to derail Arizona I can derail this topic to Arizona real quick because man when Arizona icy came out with those tall boys with Donald Bloggers trust that the mangoes mango energy. One man I was exclusively drinking Arizona Beverages Kids. I had to carry with two hands. Full can of sugar all who are. Oh Yeah I stopped doing that reading the calories on there. I'll play basketball outside of Brooklyn Yard for about three hours. Go through four those and they want some done lost. Losing my games beer man. Let's take me back to the early. Two thousands thank you. Jalen rose well the NBA is also looking to comeback in the NBA is the latest on. That is going to take some sort of a rapid real time. Testing now does exactly exist right now as you see from this from Baxter homes. They've been collaborating to assess rapid testing devices. The test results within minutes. Goodly to be tested creek gain in verifying everyone involved in the contest is corona virus free and then playing a game empty arena. Jalen this is a bit of wishful thinking but is the type of medical scientific advancement that it will take it order for. Nba Games truly be played because of the close contact. Between the contestants. In fact there are so many people carrying the Kobe. Nineteen survivors their asymmetric. So do you think that it will take rapid test results in order for the NBA function? I do and it's a domino effect. Of course we should all do it. We can social distance this pandemic Israel the brew is GonNa do to. The economy are GonNa last for so very long but Jacoby what happens is it's one thing that we all have testing available to us. It's another thing that we're not gonNA get tested unless we show symptoms which means in theory. Each of us can have it and the reason why point that out is win. More test kit available for corporations like the NBA and Major League Baseball. In a lot of companies that are firing in laying. People off putting people on a furlough. What's going to happen is we're gonNA then discover more people have it and we realized and then all of a sudden nose people are going to crowd the hospital and there aren't enough ventilators and so ask all of this takes place for public consumption. You have to be very careful as professional sports leagues for people not to feel it particular politicians to not acknowledge you for getting preferential treatment over people who actually need those tests and it's GonNa be a tricky dynamic to navigate. I think we will get through it but I don't see may as a time for it to happen but I do anticipate amber lead the NBA is going to have the time that it needs to crown a champion at some point this year but get ready at least in twenty twenty so watch your favorite sports fans in the stands. I'm I work without fans in the stands right. But Hey here's a gym shoe squeaking trash talk in a patch thumping you're gonna hear all of that but without fans well Jalen. I just want to put you in a time. It's gene really quick. Show some video of a young Jalen rose early in his media career interviewing one of the teams. I believe we'll be content for the NBA championship this year. In front of no fans. Los Angeles Lakers. Here it is young. Jalen rose in the embryonic stages of his media career. Let's see five miles unfortunate reality. Nba Championship two. Go very very fortunate also known as one of the best trash talkers of all time in the NBA. Talk back to you. And he's got a little bit so all guy talking that crafts oddity even yourself self talk you talk about. Having a daughter. They want a wnba championship Detroit. Now facing Detroit opportunity to get your title. Don't be in the same way now with hers but a hopeless different now so Jalen. What do you think at that time early on? Your career Short Lakers practices with a camera. You ever think that'd be the start of the rest of your life. I saw that White Laker practice now the NBA finals seconds. That's a practice by practice. Practice only laker practice it was the NBA finals. Y'All show only lakers. Did Not talk to. Y'All know from Detroit and I interview pisses whale who actually won that series four to one plus the respect on the bad boys two necks absolutely. I felt like this was my next opportunity.

The Sporting Life with Jeremy Schaap

Mike Tannenbaum, ESPN

"Great News there's a quick way you can save money switch to Geico. Geico could help you get great coverage at a great price and it only takes fifteen minutes to see if you could save fifteen percent or more on car insurance go to GEICO DOT com today and see how much you could save. This is the sporting life on. Espn radio and the ESPN APP. Here's Jeremy Schaap we can talk. Nfl with our own. Mike Tannenbaum a longtime NFL executive one of our NFL insiders. Mike thank you for joining us here on the sporting life. Hey great to be with you. Jeremy How are you? I'm great. I'm great and it's always a pleasure having you on the show. You have such keen insights into what's going on so I'm going to lay it all out there Is Tom Brady? Ever GonNa play for the Patriots again. I believe so. I think when the rubber meets the Road Jeremy I think he stays there. They have a good offensive line especially if David Andrews. They'RE TALENTED CENTER COMES BACK. They COULD FRANCHISE THEIR GUARD. Joe -TUNI- so when it's all said and done I would think he'll be back. I know other see differently but We will find out soon enough. If it's not New England for Brady and there have been so many other destinations that have been thrown into the conversation. How do you handicap it? If it's not New England I say on paper. Tennessee makes a ton of sense because micro their head coach he was defensive coordinator New England John Robinson knows him from his days in the New England. Front office I think one team. That's another radar that makes a ton of sense to me is Tampa Bay because last year. They were eighth overall defense a tenth of a defense in their last eight games. The two really good receivers in Chris Godwin Mike Evans. I got a couple of good tight end. Jay Howard Cameron brats so I think Tampa Bay could make a lot of sense as well. And what does that mean? Exactly In terms of the future of Jameis Winston. Yeah big variable heading into free agency. There's so many things to like about James. Obviously the three touchdown passes but I was raised in this business Oftentimes your opponents GonNa lose a game you ever have to win it. And obviously the thirty interceptions seven pick sixes if they just had a B- quarterback last year with that underrated defense. They would have competed for a playoff position. We're speaking Tanenbaum bound the former. Nfl Executive who is now in ESPN NFL insider and that raises. The question. Did Jamie's Winston situation. He's not the only one out there at what point as an executive of for Front Office and coaching staff. When when did they have to make the decision in terms of the development of somebody? You've invested in. You used a high draft pick on at the quarterback position where you're GONNA you're all in or it's time to move on. How how hard is it to make that decision Mike Jeremy? That's one of the hardest decisions to make. When when do you give up on the young hopeful ascending player in particular? When you look at the quarterback position rich Gannon Vinny Testaverde. You know to a certain extent you could make the argument for a Ryan Fitzpatrick. Sometimes it just takes a while and he has project talent so I think it's a painful difficult decision but I think you go back to his Florida state. He has turned the ball over a lot and If I was Tampa Bay given how well they play defensively. I would make change at this point in the year and we're talking in the first week of March to combine his over. The draft is still. What like six weeks away. Something like that. What does it look like in an NFL office At this point on the calendar by far the best time of year this is when you're putting your strategy together and you're juxtaposing free agency and the draft and what I mean by that when you look at the middle class of the veteran wide receiver market and just to pick a name Robbie Anderson by opinion. He lost a ton of money based on the depth of the draft at that position. Because if you need a representative wide receiver you can certainly get one in the third or fourth round this year's draft not pay a Robbie Anderson type and then go spending your money someplace else. This is a year in which there is. It seems beyond a consensus. It's unanimity that Joe. Borough should be number one pack. How do you feel about that? Conventional Wisdom and the fact that it's entirely unopposed. Well there's two concerns you would have one is urban. Meyer knows a lot about quarterback. Playing show boasts started his career at Ohio state Germany and transfer because he couldn't beat out Twain Haskins That that's a little bit of concern during housings is certainly a good player. I certainly wouldn't put him in the League category. And then secondly he had when you're a fantastic production and Mike and would take Joe Bird just to be clear but if Justin Herbert was playing quarterback at Lsu behind that line in those weapons not so sure how much different the result would have been silly. Where is Herbert's stock right now? It's extremely high with me. Because of his character his production has prototypical size if you look at how the season in particular PAC twelve championship game against Utah Rose Bowl against Wisconsin. Mvp of senior bowl threw the ball very well. Last week in Indy. So I think he's competitive. I think he's answered the bell every step of the way and I don't know what he's missing. Someone's going to have to show me why he should be a top five pick. We're speaking again with Mike. Tannenbaum in my The combine as I said is over. Who who gained the most at the combine? Who Stock went up the most After that experience I would say maybe an ambush priority high candidate but maybe MCI Becton three hundred sixty four pound offensive Lineman from Louisville. Who ran a five one? That's faster than Jimmy. Garoppolo at three hundred sixty four pounds crazy. I mean like if you really just think about that. I mean that's insane. So he was a good player. Had an through it but just to see that happen is is fascinating. I'm curious maybe it's because I'm I'm going to speak to him for outside the lines tomorrow in Atlanta. But I'm going to talk to Jalen hurts. Who's had one of those interesting college careers anyone's ever had of course At Alabama than Oklahoma this season runner up for the heisman trophy As a graduate transfer over there didn't have to sit out He's been a winner. But you know you mentioned Joe Borough. Getting bench for you know not winning the job against Wayne Haskins at Ohio state. Obviously he lost the job to to a at Alabama. Apparently he had a great combine. What are your thoughts about? Jalen hurts very intriguing to me. The axiom the tape sets the floor and the character says the ceiling it really applies to him from a standpoint of threw the ball better than I thought he broke a lot of tackles playing quarterback at both Alabama and Oklahoma. I would love to take him in the third or fourth round see work ago. There was another player. Josh Dobbs whose draft in the fourth round by Pittsburgh he gets traded Jacksonville. Very intriguing player that keeps getting better and better. Josh Dobbs has incredible character. I put it up there. Jalen hurts and I think hurts is really really intriguing to me. Of course everything we're talking about. These could all be moot points if things don't go well in terms of labor negotiations at this point or over the next twelve months and where it stands now as we speak on a Wednesday march fourth we understand a full vote of the rank and file the two thousand players approximately in the NFL. Pa is coming soon on the proposal that the owners offered up a couple of weeks ago. Where do you see this going? I hope it gets done. I've negotiated for years Jeremy. I don't think it's a perfect deal but there are no perfect deals and when you look at apples to apples a player that's coming in this year as a rookie increase the minimum wage to earn an additional four hundred ninety five thousand dollars and sixty percent of the. Nfl makes the minimum. So there's some give and take there obviously with the seventeen games but when you look at the last less padded practices. I think that helps us. Preseason game not overly consequential but certainly helps you look at some of these health sort of proxies that they have in there in terms of additional coverage. They have Places where players could get free screening for. I believe it's life or at least for twenty years so there's a lot of subtle things in there. In addition the Additional roster spots a couple of dishes practice squad players so again. Do think it's a perfect deal. Jeremy No I think it's it's a pretty good deal for both sides. It's interesting to me Mike. Right because you could argue the biggest story in sports in this country last twelve thirteen fourteen years has been the advancement of our knowledge about the effects of brain trauma. And football's been right in the middle of that story and anecdotally anyway. This point a couple weeks after this. Cba was offered up this proposal by the owners and the League It seems like The younger players Who AREN'T SUPERSTARS? Who aren't rich are going to be willing. That's the way you know. It's been handicapped so far to sign off on that seventeenth game and the extra playoff games. Now there are some things on the other side of the health equation you know. We're going to limit practices. May maybe take away one of the preseason games I understand. Does it surprise you. Will it surprise you Mike? If the players agree to more games even set against the backdrop of what we now know about head trauma and also. I should say what we don't know. Well that's a very interesting point. I think more than the number of games germy. It's about how we play in practice. I think Roger Goodell's been excellent as a thought leader in this space in terms of the game is a lot safer Just in terms of where you could hit a player helmet-to-helmet contact how we practice is dramatically. Better there's a lot less contact overall in practice. So I think if we get away from the actual number of games and really keep focusing on how we play when we do play is more important and I think we've gone to a place where the game still exciting. It's the best sport in the world and it's again I would argue. That sounds perfect. But it's dramatically safer than it once was. Were Speaking Mike. Tanenbaum the longtime NFL executive who now works with us at ESPN `bout the state of the NFL. The CBA negotiations And the vote that we were expecting to take place soon from the whole rank and file in. It's different this time around. I heard Dominic Foxworth used to be the president of the NFL PA when he was playing talked about how I think ten years ago. The last time negotiations were taking place that you know. There was a united front presented by the players in even if ultimately he didn't agree with something they decide to vote together to show united front. This time around. We had the executive committee of the voting. I think it was six to five not to pass along of the proposal to the rank and file then we add The player reps themselves voting in the other direction. Seventeen fourteen to one. And now we're hearing a split among some of the big stars saying no the guys have made a lot of money already Who would you know if there's a work? Stoppage would presumably lose year of salary. Because they're not going to get back on the back end and we're hearing the younger players were paid less. Who think maybe they'll be stars in a few years saying no. I'm I'm willing to play that extra game For a bigger share of the PIE does the does the division the lack of united front this time around. How does that strike you? I Love Dismiss what he said which is democracy is messy. Everybody has a point of view and the executive director of the peace. And Look you have whatever it is. Sixteen seventeen hundred members should not gonNA make it unanimous on their front and again. I think there's a lot more good in that deal and bad and I think they're gonNa have discussion and I would challenge a player if they don't like the deal. Okay no problem which your suggestion. You're not just GONNA walk in wave a magic wand and tell thirty two owners at sixteen games but we want everything else here my understanding and I don't know all the numbers intimately but I believe there's outwards of a digital six a half billion dollars so difference between forty seven percent forty eight point five percent of total revenues that those numbers were hearing something like that exactly so therefore ice. I've seen some of these high players have a problem with the system but again What's your idea? And how are you going to be able to implement speaking with my Tanenbaum and Mike in terms of the practicalities front offices? Now as we're in this kind of CB limbo were so much could be changing in the near future possibly. How does that affect the way? They're thinking about the draft about free agents about transition tags in franchise tags. Can they do anything now right now? It's a hurry up and wait. I've talked to a lot of my friends around the league. They're just waiting ill. There's some teams that have fifteen twenty free agents. Nobody knows what the rules are. You don't know if you're writing a contract for sixteen game season or seventeen game season Those are all things are going to have to be factored into two variables in terms of executing the contract. Once we know what the rules are in terms are we in the last year the collective artery man or we you know in the first year of a new or this could still be the last year with a new ten year extension tacked on so until we know what the player vote is really a lot to do. Yeah I mean I mean I I don't know the calendar intimately the way that you do but it would seem like there are some very big issues at hand and until the resolve. We know what's going to happen in the future. For instance like you know. It's hard for Tom. Brady to make a decision or anyone to make a decision about Tom Brady. Because the domino's of how salary cap works and who else could be signed or franchise that kind of stuff right. It's it's it's complicated. That's exactly right. And until we know what the rules are being a big holding pattern from your perspective. Mike having done this For so long and being so closely Associated League for so long and now covering the League you know a few years ago people talked about NFL fatigue when they ended the Thursday game. And you know ratings ratings dip there it might have been more related to the political situation people's interest in the presidential election. Two Thousand Sixteen all that we don't know exactly but there was a feeling like you don't kill the golden goose. Don't give him too much content but seems everybody thinks. I mean. I shouldn't say everybody. It seems a lot of people think that seventeen is just a no brainer. From the owners perspective lease perspective and more. Playoff Games are no brainer. You feel the same way I think it's what we've seen as it's the one product that has withstood. Basically the dvr meaning that long shows can get shifted or their stream bid on Netflix. Or whatever our products in one product that is ratings have remained incredibly strong inconsistent. And because there's such great demand and we could sit here and talk about. Its gambling or fantasy football sports. Whatever the reasons the numbers objectively will backed it up based on any metrics therefore the theory is we have an incredible product. It's been consistent for a long period of time. Why not add to that product incrementally and with that will flow these incredible numbers that you've already alluded to Jerry and then therefore the pie will be collectively bigger for everybody and that's really at the end today. The rationale behind like we. We've had this incredible run and everyone has had Participate to make it successful. Beat the players. The owners sponsors are broadcast partners here on ESPN amongst many others and therefore let's keep growing the Pie. Which again has benefited everybody involved? How do you feel about only one team in each conference getting a by? I don't like it because if you look at the. Nfc You take Philadelphia San Francisco Green Bay. Maybe the rams you could argue but say plus or minus five percent. You have three or four teams. That are lumped in there together and the one team that gets to by two. H is that apply at the end of the year health and Homefield. And when you're the team that has the homefield manage and you have the body healthy. I think that's going to give you a disparate sort of advantage over those other team so it will make the regular season consequential Mike we lean on you for your insights and your knowledge. Thank you so much for providing them again here on the sporting life. Thanks Sir we appreciate it.

We are at the Miami Convention Center the site of Super Bowl fifty four chiefs in forty niners. We made it down here. Of course Allen Jerry ran into a crime scene on the way to the Convention Center there was always something last year was bedbugs for boomer. This time it was a crime scene for Alan Jerry but we are excited to be here a great guest list and a great super bowl. That is different. This is different than what we have talked about the last couple of years because we don't have the New England patriots here. Good morning boomer. Our you I'm doing all right. You know there are a few things that are not different however one is trying to get into this building Gore screening of Our first show because that turns out to be a fiasco because nobody really knows. What's what's going on? And nobody explains anybody how to get into the building where they tell you one thing you go to that side of the building and then that side of the building is not open. Then you've got to go to the other side of the fricken builder. Yeah so that's annoying but it is a beautiful day outside so I will tell you I didn't mind the walk around the building. That was nice. Seventy five degrees is opposed to thirty thirty two. Like we're used to. What I I was coming out of our building walking into a construction zone and didn't know whether it turn right or left to find uber driver right so that's annoying doing and then getting into my hotel yesterday so I had my credential delivered to the hotel but I also had a super bowl book I get delivered Super Bowl Book? Yeah from my buddy Wayne Fiddle it gives me a gift and all the statistics and stuff to look up to all right so the book I get so now I can't find my my immediate credential to get into this place. Don't have it I'm going to take you out in handcuffs. Credential the Guy Everywhere. Yeah Yeah so you know I I call down to the desk. Had extensive we bring that up. Yeah we're bringing the convince now now meeting you guys for dinner as you guys. Take me to the cleaners again. Last night as a dinner you did offer to check I pick up the whole. Guess what you're paying in tomorrow night tonight. What you told me? I said all right fine. I'll take you to the community. So that's fine. Listen I expected I. I was prepared last night. He told me no right. So anyway as the story goes with my media credential I couldn't get it and then they brought it up and I was downstairs and they brought it back down then I went upstairs and I was chasing facing my media. Credential all over the frigging hotel because people didn't know who had it where it was and who is in who was in charge so that that annoyed me To No end when I first got here yesterday but then I went out by the pool when it was beautiful it was nice and it was relaxing and then I calmed down and I met you guys for For Dinner. Yeah I mean I felt the same way when I opened up the shades in my room and I looked out to see this Sewage River and a couple of PORTA potties. And I said man this is what it's all. Well there's there's a big difference between you and me and you brought this up last night and I do miss this Portion of the hotel room. My Hotel Room does not have a microwave. Oh yes yours yours does. Yeah I feel like you know what there's a lot of pressure to use all the amenities in these hotels. This this residents in there were so when I see all the stuff I feel like I have to use it. So there's lean cuisines downstairs. I'm just going to get a lean cuisine and warming up in the microwave. It not eat it right just so I use the microwave the refrigerator. I've got to buy stuff to put in the dishwasher. Washer dishwasher too I think so. Oh Wow that's just one in there. Yeah I have to send my close down again. Washed it only five dollars per do ya per item but the one I will say I don't know whether I like where I'm at or where you're at because across the street from you. You have a trader Joe's trader Joe's. Yeah you don't have a trader Joe's across from Your swanky hotel the ocean. I look like an ocean. Guy Look like Ocean Gene Guy Guy. Look look at my skin like the last thing I need to be doing is sitting out okay but you still do the water but my view you got in ocean view room. No I don't know that's horrible. Data a drop the ball and somebody dropped the ball. I'm not really sure. Yeah I mean I know but I want to trade. No don't but it just it got off to a little bit of an inconsistent start. Tell you and then you know the start with you guys with your masks on and everything else right Germaphobe. That you've turned out to be traveling with me and I feel like I'm traveling with nor posse and you got your masks on on and everything else. Yeah the pictures up. CBS Sports Network and know what's funny right before the show started. I had some Schmaltz on my face. And you said you got some Schmaltz. What's on your face? It's over here and I said where then you just took it upon yourself to knock it off of my face and then I realized soon after that that you touched my face. The doctor yesterday said don't touch anything boomer touches and then touch your face. We skip the step. We just had your hand on my face so period. If you haven't started yet stocked o'clock well you know I I am. I'm shedding as they say. Yeah you were shedding yesterday. They all over the place. I'm sure this shed over. People didn't even know you were shedding. We at least knew you were shedding. You were shedding on Rod Woodson last night you were shedding all over the people you were shaking the hands with and they didn't even know I wanted to go up to Rod Woodson yesterday and say hey. Do you know that boomers shedding right. Now he just shed all over you. But you're you're legend in in the game and like this is a big week for you. Just were shed upon by boomers is something you probably don't know that I threw Rod Woodson. What's in his first interception ever professional football picked off your past? I don't think you know. Know it went off the hands of one of my tol care very good and of course he he caught it so so that was his first interception hall of fame career. Well so I think a little shedding on him is needed. Payback the payback for the for the interception. Yeah Yeah but this is always cool when you run into guys like that and I'm excited about the guests that we have is kirk cousins today. alecky forgetting about this. You told me this like fifty times today all all right. So Kirk cousins is today. I had a dream about that interview last night. I had a dream about the kirk cousins out of that dream end. Did you wake up. And sweats let's book up sweats. Because I always wake up. It's out and we have a couple of short rip tacos and Fifteen Margaritas awesome definitely in. swags yeah I did have a dream about that. I can't I shouldn't even brought it up because they can't even share for it because it was it wasn't dirty just inappropriate. Not Dirty Jerry made out were you doing something thing to him. showed up with something we showed up with some yeah. The way he came onto the set was was the thing that's inappropriate. I can't I can't so al Now Looking at our set where Jerry sitting to my right Geo to my left where we'll our guests it right over here all the way over there. So there's no buffer between me and Geo and any of these potential problem guests right problem coosa problem that that could be a problem. I'm not going to be disrespectful to tell them the truth. Truth disrespect. It's not I'M GONNA. I'm GonNa tell him that I've been disappointed with you suck. I'm not gonNa tell them you suck it. I'm going to say EH. The fact that he went and beat the saints those two throws that sort of put a little bit of a fragrance upon kirk cousins but positive fragrance. Yeah Yeah but I think it's a good way putting actually really enjoy. I think you need a fragrance. I always I'm not saying I don't But I'm not getting paid ninety million dollars guaranteed. That's true but you know but the thing about him is that he bet on himself. It wasn't like you know he didn't earn his contract. He earned every bit of it. They they were willing to pay for minutes and remember he was drafted the same year as Robert Griffin and third and he had to sit through two years at crap. I know I in and he just sat idly by and say a word and by the way was told not the same thing about. Rg Three back in the day. When I got the Washington note you say anything fun? You're backup right right. So he had all this pent-up frustration. I'm sure I can only put myself in his shoes trying to think how I would react to it. I pissed sure watching the guy. Play the position in that. I know that I'm better than and yet. They're giving him all the opportunities simply because he was a high draft pick. Yeah when we to these kirk cousins discussions. The same thing happens because we're talking about two different things that happen to be true. Everything you're saying is true. He bet on himself he got the money that was great. He went out and hit free agency at a time time. That a lot of quarterbacks. Don't there was a team that was in desperate need of a starting quarterback to take the next step and he took advantage of that and that's great but also it's been disappointing pointing in him coming there because they were in the NFC championship game that year before he got there and then of course they haven't gotten back to that game since he's been there and there's a lot of money there now you're going to see this off season some cap casualties and stuff like that Both those things are true. I will be you know. I'm not going to be disrespectful to kirk cousins but I want. It'll be fun to have a chat with. Who else do we have? We had the vinny testaverde's an extra quarterback. Okay great yet the another another extra quarterback Carson Palmer all right X. Bingo quarterback I see a common theme here ahead Mark Sanchez. Alec Alec Gardiner minhsiu nobody connected to the bengals are the jets kirk cousins of course and I book this guy just because you used to Babysit Kyle Long. Oh Yeah Kyle. I'd never babysat. I got tormented by them. What you were to Babysit? I thought I was not the Babysitter Lawrence when they were children and watch them and of course their data as a defensive lineman invites a quarterback over to have an ice meal and sit down and be welcome in Manhattan Beach Home and all of a sudden. I'm tormented by three animals all over me. Did you get paid to Babysit or I did not. I did not babysitting. Yeah I just I. That's what the story you told us. We wouldn't have made that way. Do you see how John Norm as long long as I can tell you that. He's not much much bigger than he was when he was like three years old. I'm telling you you just retired right. Yes he is sir. I think he's got a bad back up. That stinks. Well Chris Long when he was on with us sort of alluded to that a couple of months before he did retire that he thought that he was going to going to be he done. So by. The way has a ninety five mile an hour fastball. He was great pitcher. Yes wow sort of like Patrick mahomes. Also a great pitcher Surrey. Yes merrick baseball player and like Russell elsewhere. Thank you and you also were a great pitcher. Yeah but I. The athletes today are different. The athletes that when I was you know what I'm saying and I do by the way there was a controversial statement made by one Dion Sanders yesterday in the Dan Patrick Show and we finally something something found something that I can agree right. You guys have been butting heads for like twenty years. Yeah what's okay. Well my is it. It is but this time he said I he hates quotas and quotas to. I think people should be given something on merit should be merit based. If you're good at something great at something then you should be given whatever you're good or great at not because we have to meet a quota so dion basically came out yesterday and Said said that he thinks that the hall of fame is being cheapened by just putting you know five people in our seven people in every year. Yeah I don't I don't necessarily agree with that. I'm I'M GONNA be the one who's the dissenting opinion. You know me and hall of fame. Everybody can go in for all I care and these moments are special for those players. I know who the great players resolve. I don't need the hall of fame to tell me who's better than who I heard. You know. I think what they should do. The hall of fame should ask to come to the hall of fame and select the busts that he Out should be up on the top floor shelf top shelf Johnny Walker blue bus or maybe in the room itself. Okay top or busts or the top shelf right a horrible sportstalk topic. Someone's GonNa do that today. Well we just did it. But they don't know we're not only did it because because guys people are going to name those guys and then that didn't take calls right exactly as Joe Montana atop top floor bust writing cynically. CBS Sports Radio. But I know what he's talking about and I'll and I'll give you an example. Okay so if I would say that Eddie sees in the back somewhere doing something pushing buttons three guys that I sit up here with are not New York giant fans right. You Guys Not New York giant Dome now the you know. Are you guys Miami Dolphin fans. We're not Miami Dolphin fans either so we are down there in the land of the Miami Dolphins. I'll ask you a question if you had a choice between. Can you lie. Manning is your quarterback. Dan Marino's your quarterback who take and Marino. Dan Come on danger. You know all right well. Marino doesn't have any championships. Okay but that's what I think. Dion Dion is trying to point out. He's trying to say that you knew when a guy was a supreme hall of Famer by the way he played the way he looked and how he changed the game as opposed to a guy that lasted for sixteen years played in a lot of games and had two championships into super bowl. MVP's that that's I think that's kind of comparison. He's making you know who the guys are. That belong in and who the guys are conscious choice sucks. He's like sucks. You gotta calm down. Still breathing. Sucks unbelievable so so basically this is another like let's find a way to diminish. Well the reason I say that is because yesterday Dan Patrick asked him about ally specifically and and and he looked at Dan. I didn't see it. I just read it. He he looked at Dan and said you know you get the point if Eli Manning is in a hall of Famer. I'm sorry then the whole process. I just I'm sorry is all of Famer. -secutive start streaky. They didn't miss a game due to injury to sir. Can we already know this. There is in this because Richard Sherman said ally. Manning is definitely a hall of Famer. He said yes he is. He's definitely a he's right to stop there. Well this is the point that Dion Sanders. Change the the tone of the conversation because he used ally well. Dan Patrick accused lie. But the answer to you told you exactly what he was saying and I was just trying to lay out an example of what Dion Sanders was trying to say. Yeah okay okay that's fine. I think that he's wrong. I just don't know why everybody gets so wrapped up in that stuff. You know what I'll tell you. Why have their own opinion? Did you did you but I'll tell you. Why did you see the reaction? Obviously you have to the death of Kobe Bryant. Sure okay so I I think the intensity to that reaction is due in large part to the other people that died with him including his daughter. But there's no doubt that his superstardom worldwide ride. It's had an impact on this so much so that a million five have signed a petition to change the NBA logo. Which I think is wrong but you know for a million people? There's something to to be said about that. There are people behind that so it just goes to show you how passionate fans are about the players that have played for their teams their entire careers. Sure that brought them championships. Ally happens to fall in. That Kennedy is going to be a hall of fame debate. It's not it will be a not. There's a shoddy doesn't get in. He's the best. Will he get on his first ballot. Yes because I think that's what I'm saying. If you're not in on your first I say this all the time. You know that you're the best of the best you're not and if you are the best of the best you should be recognized as such not as he's going to Eh Arbitrary Group of people that hopefully you know our stewards of the Games right but it's also guys that argue for teams right. So who's the guy who argues for the giants. Do We know that Gary Myers is a Gary. Maybe he's one of those in the room right. Yeah I mean but we all saw but we have a biased. Ast Lie because we watched him for sixteen years grow up in front of our eyes and we watched him handle so many different situations basically the same way that he always handles it right. You WanNa know the villa one Margarita. On no no no no bitch or the hair No I would not like the hair of the said hair. The dog that bit you I definitely said Hey I almost broke event wack and I called myself in the middle of it and restarted it. Would you like the hair of the big said. Would you like the hair the dog that bit you said it reverse water ordered it sounded. Okay if that's the way you want to go with it you know. I told you I would not like the shot of bill one. No no no no. I'm Tom totally fine. I just WANNA know more. Eli All of Fame Talk. I'll tell you want they can get you out of New York man. You become like an animal. You knew that was it's going to happen. We're going to slow down time. That was a great time. Everybody had a great time. Al Was even having a great time. You never see him have agreed. It was happy now and by the way. How many beers did you have on the on the plane ride down three good and how many vote will wants one one he did he had one big one? Yeah it four drinks one big one one big one. Yeah so that was like three. Yeah so that's why he he was like almost as he's walking off the plane mia now he was five he was too. Everybody is predicting was going to collapse when he got off the plane. He was totally fine. I I was drunk on life. No I knew that you were. I knew they were into it because you showed up at dinner last night right right Jewish versus John Jewish John. I had a chicken tacos. I did feel a little under dress. Shikin Pacos Chicken. Cocco you have to do is sit. Sit next to Eddie. If you feel on demand you order COCTEAU's why was the bill seven hundred bucks seven hundred seven hundred bucks. I mean in fairness every every trick was twenty five dollars. Oh Yeah that is true hole which I know I bought one. I bought one round. I got three drinks. Seventy seven dollars here you go. You are a lot. aww Fun last night. You looked like you on your hunting. That's me. I'm a fun guy. Jerry Recco I saw last night. Yeah probably tell you though pretty much when Al decided he was done he was done guest because we were all going back to the same hotel so I thought that we'd all like leave you've together to go back to the Schmidt insane. We're so I'm like I'm sitting there and I go like I'll be leaving in five minutes gone gone gone guys ordering more drinks is like I can't sit through. No no no and then you just took off and I was like when you when we think about him on the plane. Hey was great. I love to see that. Do not drink shame in this was awesome. I want to see more of that and we're not counting. Don't worry about it. I'm not count now. You just keep slamming avenue back up to where I was sitting and he said to. The flight attendant appears to have brand new out now. That was the talk of the plane was the talk of the plane and then Lee Lee wanted Al to basically full face. First onto the tarmac.

Morning morning brought to you by the Raycatena group schedule. An appointment today to Ray Katina Service Center First Class Service at affordable prices. Were down here in Miami Super Bowl Week so we'll do some football. We'll get to all the basketball in just a moment to but I also did see as well your tweet in the middle of the night. The passing of Chris Doleman very sad fifty eight years old passed away from Cancer Hall of Famer the Vikings so I actually got the news last night from my former agent. David Falk also represented my Jordan. Patrick Ewing you know Alan Iverson. Everson Dominique Wilkins Clyde Drexler. These great basketball parts but he had a few football players and Chris and I were back to back so I was his first college football player that he recruited as an agent. And then Chris Coleman I believe was his second. I believe you had James Lofton. Prior to prior to me James Pick them up later on in his career but So I got to know Chris off the field as well as on the field and on the field I would put them on the same level as a Michael Strahan now. He's unbelievable. He was a great pass. Rusher and you know what he played within the rules. Unlike his teammate. John ran well actually they. They didn't spend a ton of time. I think they I think they were. They were together. What maybe a couple years that? Yeah but he played mainly with Keith. Millar right see it was. It was eighties mid eighty two early nineties. Then he went to the Falcons and he was a guy. Obviously when I was younger I just I was in August and also him being a pitman. I was lucky enough to interview him for the pre game. Show and I did it pip. Football pre game show and he was just a gentleman he was he was great on and off. The field is really really sad. Because he's so young. The first social media thing that I saw all last night was from my former teammate of the jets green and Victor Green wrote a nice little thing about Chris Doleman. There was a picture of Chris in a wheelchair with Victor and Sri tweeted that I couldn't have said it any better than victor did You know Chris was one of the like if you played against him. You knew how great he was but you. He played Minnesota's like nobody really really knew who he was other than those of us who obviously like you were biking fans but those of us who played against him and you always wonder about a guy like that getting overlook but his statistics stood the test of time and he was one of the Great Pass rushers of his era and I was glad to see him get into the hall of fame and certainly said here about his death last night. All right. niners chiefs This Week of course in super bowl fifty four Tuesday Andy Reid with the media. Just let's go ready to rock or glad be here. I don't have any injuries injuries to give you. I think we're we're healthy and ready to go out of good good workout yesterday. Still Amazing to me that that's still so healthy going to the super grable. Here's Their quarterback Patrick Mahomes Whatever we have to do to get this done the best thing about this team is? We've learned how to win different ways As far as scoring early scoring late Defense and US scorn enough about this. Twenty seven and eight career record. That's a seven seventy one. Winning percentage percentage and he's three and one postseason. He's played his best games in the postseason. I feel like we need to drop for every one of these fiddle men middleman sticks filaments stats. You do because filmon put this thing together for you. Yes and others and others not just me. I mean but this is a wealth of knowledge in this book but I think it's unbelievable. Then you take a look at Jimmy Garoppolo amid nugget. Dude Fiterman. Doug do you know. Do you know what Jimmy Garoppolo's record is as a starting quarterback he has not lost many games. Twenty three and five is an eight twenty one when percents. It'll the get right on FIDDLE FIDDLE FIDDLE. No I just I guess that Phil and I had at the Investors Bank Talk the other night. Oh Chris Chris Simms is known. Mike skip the the next one. Let's go to Kyle Shanahan. So he was obviously on the staff when Atlanta was up. Twenty eight three on the Patriots years ago. And that's something that doesn't go away. I wish I could say There was some like easy answer that affects us now blowing lead but I go back and everything I know what it is. Run the ball. And that's exactly what they've done. They become the best running team in football and this way if they do get a lead they are very difficult to beat because they will just pound the rock pound the rock pound the rock. Now they're not gonNA. I don't think they're going to be a successful against the chiefs run defense that was stood the test of You Know Derrick der Der Kenya last two weeks ago but this team is all about committing to the Ron. And that's the Mike Shanahan influence on his son and I think they learned definite lesson. Losing Twenty eight to three lead begins Patriot. They should Iran the Baltimore. Then I see bill belichick Cold Kyle Shanahan after that. I think you said that yesterday. That's a phone call. You don't want to take the guy's teen eighteen kid rock on you. Of course he was only offense coordinator at the time but that was to be a tough one but I guess bill cared about him. He's got a great relationship with them and remember. They traded given Jimmy Garoppolo to San Francisco. Yep now that may have happened because Tom Brady. Didn't want Jimmy Garoppolo there who whatever but all I can say is that Jimmy Garoppolo has his own team. He's inherited a a great defensive team. He's got a great offensive minded head coach. That knows how to protect young quarterback. And he is he's throwing more touchdown passes this year then Patrick Mahomes. He's got better completion percentage than Patrick mahomes because Kyle Shanahan knows how to run a play action passing offense and that's where Jimmy really obviously excels all right. Mike skip this next one. Let's go to Jimmy Garoppolo talking about now being a starter in this game and how it's different for them. I think everyone will be different. It just is the first and second one. We were different. I'm sure there will be different but it's just You got treated like it's its own game and just Gone play football. Where do you go to college? Jimmy Garoppolo the great question. I don't know top of my head. Actually wow where's the college Cincinnati Sir. No No it's not Cincinnati. It'll it I'll tell you who else went to college here. You got a fiddle it. No Sean Payton went to college. Wow Rama went to college there Illinois Eastern Illinois. Yes thank you very much Garoppolo at the airport three. That's right Mike. Shanahan went to college there. Wow the man who played big bird also into college really. No the what. That all means at Morgan Mindy also graduated from Eastern Illinois a little tidbit. No it's a fiddle to admit I love the Filton. Mike skip the next one. Let's get to the basketball because there's a lot to get to here. We'll start with the next and we'll get the shack stuff With Kobe first thing the Knicks in Charlotte last night. They had elite early in that did not stay with them. Two Zero two three is a shot clock expired fire and it's a ten point game done in the game training in pain in pain. Yes yes Thirteen point lead in the first half wind up falling to the Hornets. Ninety seven ninety two Charlotte snaps. Eight game losing streak in this game. Rozier had thirty points to lead the way here is their head coach. Nixon Hermit coach Mike Miller talking about how it started. Well we had a difficult time generating any consistent offense offense after really after the first quarter and maybe a half the second quarter now. Here's a didn't here but I'm curious to hear it because of the way it it is it is slugged it says slot. Yeah Yeah it's like you slugger listen. I'm sorry radio auto started from the bottom right things we know you slug cuts man. Sluggish clip was slugging clips for the Great Gal L. Gardner WBZ TV slugging cuts right. Well anyway this is how it but I never heard referred to as that Elfriede Payton nicknamed unprepared opponent no No game plan is going in. I guess they weren't prepared and didn't have the game plan going in anyway. The Knicks now thirteen and thirty five on the season. Alright couple of things here with Kobe. Bryant sixers beat the warriors won fifteen one four Joel Embiid wore the number twenty four or than twenty-four points and eight rebounds in that game. So that's Kinda Weird Here's Kevin Durant no. He's not playing yes. He's making a fortune but He weighed in on on Kobe. was like nothing ever be big enough to truly honor Code Brian but how we approached everyday life us people whatever me as a disciple copen study you and speaking of Kobe. Skip to the next one Mike. This is shack now on. TNT He spoke for about five and a half minutes last night. Almost uninterrupted erupted at one point. They thought he was done. They're gonNA move on now. I got more to say and it was just watched it. It was pretty wild Here he is obviously Tremendously sad little. It'll be able joe get hall of fame ceremony when I won't be able to say I've got five. You got four the fact that we're not going to be able to say if we would stay together we we kind of got ten goats. Can't get back. Here's one more from shack just In disbelief probably want to believe it. And the call. Oh from you chose. Can everybody called me. And then we found out it was confirmed and then we have one from. We talked about this on Monday or Tuesday. Whatever it was that at one point we thought Rick Fox was part of the people on board? There's a clip here from Fox talking talking about that and I started crying. He's like you're alive and I'm thinking yeah like what do you mean. And he was in that moment the phone just started going in my mom and my sister and my brother and thought that he was just horrendous anymore. UPDATES on the the flight whoever the decision to go up in the air what happened and the only thing I saw this morning was that I guess the helicopter didn't have is some technology updates or something like that. That might have helped might not so. I don't know that that really is important here but now that's all I've seen the thing that I'm more that I'm wondering about and still have to wait until I guess the. NTSB has to make a decision on this right. Yeah is it's being reported that this helicopter was going at one hundred and eighty five miles an hour as it slammed and into the mountain. Yep so but it was also going it was it was dropping two thousand feet right. What was what it was like? Two thousand feet per minute or something was that was the speed it. Well he wanted to. There's some communication that has been out there. Traffic Controller and the pilot pilot and the assumption has been made that he was trying to get below the fog because there was that thick layer there and he was going to fast has to try to get underneath that and then ended up misjudging where he was because the visibility was as bad as it was so we don't know that for had no help with the radar of how low he was EXAC- so assuming that he was over a flat piece of ground or over the water. Yeah will they follow the highways. It's called the the following following route. So you follow the highway. The I five is a world. Yes yes so what. I'm saying like if he were over a flat piece of ground or flat over the water the ocean right. He would not have happened in other words. There's nothing there was no mechanical seemed like right. It doesn't seem like you know they might find something that says. Wow this thing caused this helicopter to act in a way in malfunction but it doesn't seem like that it appears to be horrible visibility ability and pilot error right now but those are those are not facts yet. All right last couple of things here Saint John's lost at the Garden Villanova last night. Seventy nine fifty nine. And let's hear ear from Mr Chris. Carlin is rutgers one again harper. Carter sets a screen far per year. Quarter Dibella God was the I triple of the night brokers back to a nine point lead while the good job.

In for rutgers overall Nice morning show with boomer Esiason and Greg boomer and Geo the traveling Investors Bank Studio uh-huh boomer Esiason Greg boomer and Geo on the band and across the country on CBS sports network radio row at the the Miami Convention Center Miami Beach Convention Center. Whatever the heck it is and it's got fifteen entrances and I was able to get to one this morning? Alan Jerry witnessed a crime on their way walking from our beautiful very impressed. How you got here so quickly? Yeah it was. It was in a car so so what exactly happened to you. Well we were told to walk down to Washington and make a left and we noticed all these cop cars if passes how many nine ten nine ten call cop cars Elliott but you made a lap when you were supposed to make a right well. We know luckily As we were walking down here we paused. Talk to Sean One of the guys who works at. CBS Sports Network. He was going to let us know which way to get in. And so we stopped on the street for a little while while Sean tried to figure that out in the meantime while we were waiting there all these cop cars complying by and we don't know where they go. But then Sean goes. Okay go down one more block and make a left. That was the block where the cops handcuffed somebody and and looked like in Jerry. I wanted to cut through the courtyard courtyard to get here and not be in the police activity also known as a crime scene the courtyard and there was a command laying down in the park. Who looked like he was dead was murdered to death and nobody was attending into him? So I I figured he wasn't breathing otherwise they would have been trying to save his life. Did they have a like a cover over his mom. They they were in the process of looking for a weapon around there. That's what we think that. That's what we think because there were seven or eight cops with flashlights. Going through the bushes and right it's like when you watch Svu Yeah you know. There's a body they usually have right right. Fresh those various rice fresh. We just got there certainly seem. I guess we fight and somebody saw the fight in the guy was dead or do you think somebody came upon. I was just and we did not not hear gunshots which we would have if the guy was shot right because we were right down the law right there so I don't know if he was stabbed or if something got knocked out cold welcome to the Super Bowl City. Do you think you'll be walking here from now on or now I was not very comfortable walking here. You had this pussy feathers boomer. I was like I was like this. The entire walk my head looking constantly attorney behind on a swivel quarterback back out. That's why you know when you're playing flag football basking Ridge with your whole head on the swivel kind of thing. I'm the basking Ridge. It should worked out better for you. Remember what he did. He threw interceptions. He blamed the other people. Just like every quarterback does so. Well that's why he's a natural. Is there any chance that that they had coughed. This one guy that was lying down said stay here while they try other guy. There was no his hands and he was on he was on his back. He was on his back. You ever seen a dead guy No so it's a real dead guy that's not by me. Yeah that not at a funeral. I'm talking about out on the streets not uncovered That's not sure actually. Yes I have on the street I hit by a car So traumatized by this was not traumatized by but I'm not. I'm not feeling like walking through this neighborhood so I hear this story and I'm thinking there might be a murderer on the loose right so I already been put my brain to what if it's my uber driver right and so then since I ordered the Uber the first over cancels second guy shows up in a Honda civic with rims tinted windows. What's the thing here? The oubre drivers the Uber driver. We had back to the Hotel Eddie and I last night. He had a disco ball inside the Uber. So yes even the cars down here. Very sketchy I almost didn't get anything I'VE HAD UBER's in New York City where you get in in the top of the Uber the roof inside the cars all lights. and Ah you're in like a strip club or something for you. Use Stinky Toyota Camrys. Well I don't. I don't take uber x last night I shared Oba getting some nice super. Got Very much. Yes you have. The thing was I went to to look at. It's so close at this place and I was like thirty dollars ago. A half a mile like that seems a little bit more than just walk because he told me he saw a guy probably dead in. That's satellite where you're walking. I'm not doing that man. Come on. I'm so shocked that you would walk in a strange place in the morning. Only because Jerry was doing it so I would not have walked alone. You Jerry would have protected you. Had there been some fisticuffs. Well here's what I thought it would have to take two men to to attack attack Jerry and I now instead of one man. We probably could take on well. Jerry could probably grapple. I was screaming for help town. Yeah he wouldn't get away with it but if it was two guys two guys coming towards us I'd have been like. What are we doing here? Jerry what's the move jumps up renting in the other direction. Seen anything on the local news about a dead guy like a hundred percent sure was a dead guy. I thought about the citizens APP wherever you are tells you what's going on. Yeah and I usually get an update on that. Yeah let's see. Well they might not. I want to be broadcasting this one because they like to have the Nice. It's the Super Bowl. Nothing's going on. I try and be clear if that's what it was appeared to be. There is no safety safety coverage here on the citizens APP in Miami Beach. Would you be willing to put money on the fact that this was a no. No no I would not all right but it was. We'll I'd say very quick police action and a lot of them at one time. But that's what you want. Definitely that's exactly so that made you feel l.. Safety did not other than the body on the ground. Yes ground wasn't going to get up and I don't I don't WanNa make light of that thing when the cops come you feel safe seat dat aware that could be me. You know if something would have happened to you on this walk here you would have never forgiven yourself. You would have said I'm not why in the hell would I ever walk in the middle of the night in a strange city to a convention if if the phone call to Sean here at CBS. Would've I've been. He had an answer immediately. I may have be dead as well. I'll just get yourself in over the next two days. Thanks in the morning warning. You could walk home after here. You can walk home. It'd be light out. It'd be a lot of people believe around but it in the morning just yourself over and got it thank you silly. It's only a couple well minutes but I'm not uber. REX couple minutes clips voters. Yeah I saw the jump over. Scooter where do you get one of those that I don't know oh I saw one. I don't see them anywhere else. It just hanging around on the streets. There was yeah there was just hanging out how it is in San Diego you saw the Atlanta can wait for that to come to New York City. That's it's GonNa be awesome. That will be in these other cities please between the skateboarders the Uber skateboarders right these scooters right the bicycles anything else that you can travel in. No I think that's about it. Yeah yeah that's about it. About what about the did you say rollerbladers blazers have seen a couple of rollerbladers tried. That's another form of transportation guy a near our building in New York City that see quite a lot. He rides on what looks like an electric the UNICYCLE. Yes the wheel. He stands on the what looks like a UNICYCLE. Just one wheel and his two two feet are on where the pegs would come out. And there's no seat and it's electric and he just zips all over the place he's lives. He works near building our lives near our building. Don't just want to close line that guy. How do you think he stops? There must be some very subtle movement with his backheel or or something that will stop the sort of like a segue. You Lean your your weight distribution as lean forward it moves. Things called the Hover Board. Did you see a dentist.

Fifty four and two mile left is a man who is always always looking in shape and dapper and had a great. NFL career in Miami Legend of course in college former New York jets quarterback vinny Testaverde Vinnie. Very Good Morning. What's happening? Good morning how you doing today. Gray man one of my favorite people in all the NFL and Vinnie I went on a golf trip once and you talk about Vinnie being in shape right. I I was a mess. I was like maybe ten years out of the League partaking everything that was going on and we went to Scotland for for a golf trip with about forty guys cut back to this castle. Like place that we're staying right. Vin Awesome trip right and the next thing I know we have to put on kilts and I come out with these kids. I got these white stiff big John norms legs in here comes out of any of these Nice Tan leg. Yeah legs eight to kill. Ben Was a picture of me. You and Dan Yeah kilts you know standing on the stairs in the background it was awesome. That was the last time you and I spent any time together. So what you've been up to just been at home plate lot of golf raising kids doing some honeydews put China stress-free as much as possible keen and like. Why would you WanNa do anything else? Honestly why well if I can have any other job it'd be up here with you guys. We want to do this. I don't know if I could do it as well as you guys. So we I have to send it to you guys. So you're you're in Tampa now. Three aren't in Tampa Florida. And now they have any sports talk stations over there. Do you ever want to do I'm looking for a part of a part time job. That's okay nothing like yeah Sunday morning. NFL thing or something like that do involve with the bucks at all. The no no. I'm I'm not involved with the books The only going to have is I see the coaches every once in a while out on the golf course and say hello and You know kind of leave them alone. They don't WanNa talk too much football but It's always nice to see them out there. I was just wondering maybe they would ask you to talk to James. The stop thrown exceptions. Well you know I went through the early on my career to but hopefully the Coach Arians can can turn it around for him and the organization Vinnie is with us on behalf of straight talk wireless and we'll find out more about that in a little bit and going straight talk. Talk Dot Com for me. The thing that when I think of you I think about those successful years with the jets and then of course the injury start the season after that spectacular ninety the eighth season but when you get stopped by fans what's the thing in your career either college or pro the people asking the most. Oh there's a couple things one You you know you mentioned the injury. The Achilles injury in ninety nine when we came off a great year ninety eight went to the AFC championship game. Another great moment was the Monday night Miracle Games that was always a lot of fun they even had a reunion a ten year reunion on that so it was a big moment in jets history. What a great team? That was man in one thousand nine hundred a great rate team. Yeah you know you must have just been loving life. Being the quarterback of team have been a resurgence in your career. You know absolutely not only did we have a lot of talent but it was just fun to be on that team. We had a lot of characters in a good way and the guys were close and and I still stay. Stay in touch with a lot of those guys and as you know boom from playing in the number of teams Cincinnati in particular when you guys go into the Super Bowl it's very memorable and it's good to get back with the guys that you went through it with you said you had a lot of characters t there wasn't a bigger character than your head coach. I often to listen to Phil. Simms talk about his relationship with bill parcells ourselves and you know he basically raised Phil Simms as a quarterback and their points until life where he thought his first thing was F- sims right so I'm just watering how later in your career when you're playing for him how that relationship works and how that basically came altogether. Yeah we had a great relationship still do and I. I have the greatest respect for bill parcells and I look forward to going to play for him because he just made everybody accountable for what they do on the football field. And a you know as a former quarterback and some of the places you've been you try to not only the quarterback but sometimes the coach to and When you get the coach parcells? It's just about playing quarterback and doing your job and you know it's it's interesting. I think of you as a quarterback much in the same way that I would characterize Eli manning like you never really ever put yourself out in front. Although you could've because athletically you were so gifted you can throw with anybody. One of the Best Rowing League. What you see manning retire and you see the six? He had his career. I would imagine that you take a little solace in the fact that you can do it that way. You don't have to be the A.. Type personality absolutely you know and I have a son who's twenty three. He's playing football and I try and use former our players and players currently now as examples for him to follow and allies. One of those guys where you can just make sure you do things right there do it the right way and still success talking to Vinny Testaverde on boomer and Geo on the fan and CBS sports network. When you look back at ninety eight team do you think? Wow we got everything possible out of this team. You look more like it was a missed opportunity could have been a championship. Well we felt like we had the ability to win a championship. We went to Denver for the AFC championship game that year and it was a really windy. Day twenty five thirty mile an hour gusts and we had a couple of miscues that Obviously Denver took advantage manager. Otherwise I think we would have been able to go when play against would have been Atlanta Atlanta Falcons and we had beaten earlier in the air. Pretty Pretty Pretty good so we felt like we were to repeat them again. Yeah I remember that Because I grew up in Minnesota Vikings Fan and that was the ninety eighth championship game. And then that that happened first. And then I remember the jets Ron after that and I I have five memory of that game because of what I what I just watched. So you're you're with straight talk wireless and people are streaming the game more than ever on their mobile devices vices in straight talk wireless helps them out with that. Don't they. Absolutely you know last year during the Super Bowl the fans streamed that game throughout the defendant and over seven and a half million million devices are used and it was up twenty percent over two thousand eighteen. So we're looking for more people that do that this year as well. You don't strike me as a Stream team the game guys streaming well. I've watched it on TV. But I do have group text with my guys and we talk about on social media as the game's going on so it's a lot of fun to do. Do you still watching football as much as you ever did I do watch quite a bit. Enjoy the night games because during the day I'm out on the golf course somewhere but You know there's a good game to watch. I'm home watching it. Certainly this Sunday. He'll be there watching it as well. He's still involved with outback. Steakhouse I am no longer and von happy. That's why we don't like emphasis is so. Let me ask you this when you see Patrick Mahomes on the field what do you think I think. Wow what a what a gifted athlete. What a talent to do it at a young age is well both Jimmy Garoppolo and Patrick Mahomes have a great opportunity a tune in front of him at a young age? And you know I. I've never been to super bowl. You've been to one I believe. And it's it's something that We dream about his kids. And it's GONNA come true for one of these kids to win the Super Bowl. Somebody was asking me the other day. Do you think Tom Brady. Jimmy Garoppolo get along said well if our Jimmy Garoppolo I would get along because I want to two super bowls watching Tom. Brady go through the whole process and then I was fortunately enough traded tweet team that was in the midst of a rebuild with a new coach new general manager had all these first round picks they all want to the defensive side of the football. which definitely makes our job a lot easier which I think when you go back to your years as as a jet you think about the defense and how good the defense was and how like if you had an off-day you could still win a football game and I think that's the kind of the situation Jimmy Garoppolo's in right? Now Yeah I think he's doing a great situation he just really needs to manage the game and and he's done that throughout the year and he's done a good job of it might be a little different case. Come this Sunday. He might have to score more points with the explosiveness of the Kansas City chiefs. Offense I I do like the forty niners defense I do I do. Yeah I you know I lived through a forty niner defense. I don't like them personally. I hate them all Especially this group. This group is Great. Nick Post has been the perfect fit. The interesting thing for me in this game is D Ford. The former Kansas City who lined up offside last year in the AFC championship game. That ultimately cost possibly the chiefs that game and Patrick Mom's getting the ball on overtime now finds himself against the chiefs and now on the defensive line for the San Francisco Forty niners. I would imagine that there are a lot on the line personally saying it's that he's GonNa make play at the end ended a game and it's going to cost Patrick and those super bowl. Debbie believable for him the a little bit. I know he felt bad about as it's all stuck up for him. And if you look get the lineup by the offensive line of the Patriots I would tell you that it was an illegal on it because the tackle was in the backfield and that's why he was terminating where he was on the offense wind. The tackle a little sneaky thing that offensive tackles jumbo Elliott. Used to be protected me. Well now when you play for a team that is the legend has grown throughout the years. Like your Miami team and eighty six is is it more. Is the whole story being told or is it more that it's been blown up. You know what I'm saying you lived in. I've seen documentaries on. It seems just absolutely crazy crazy. Is the story been overblown or is there actually stuff that we don't know that makes it even crazier well with all the guys that have been on. ESPN and all these talk shows. It was pretty much. Got The entire story out there. Some of these guys love the camera. Loved to talk about it but We had a lot of fun in those years. Really great teams as as well. I feel like that I mean you're the man in the eighties like you. Guys were well he was. I understand but listen we're an NFL MVP take about this. Got Three long islanders right. I know I know that is tremendous. Love it just the way. I like it All right so I played offensive line at Bellport port high. Not Very well. I used to get crushed. I know you've gotTa T.. Time time to get to go to straight talk DOT COM learn and more about streaming the Games on your device. STRAIGHT TALK WIRELESS OFFERS AFFORDABLE NO contract service. Plans Vinnie we appreciate to stop invites. Great Talk Talk on you. Guys live from the travelling investors bank studio guber size in Gregg Giannotti boomer and Geo on the fan and across the country on CBS. Sports Network for data Miami Radio Row Miami Beach Convention Center Super Bowl Fifty Four. And and here's a man here that we have seen a lot over the last year or so and I like it every time I see him we got. We got some stuff in comedies. A lot in common with with me and Jerry and Al.. What's that he doesn't like to be bothered by a lot of people he doesn't really enjoy? People elects quiet things. Like this is this is kind of the bond bond that we have and that's of course Carson Palmer's here with Fedex was going on Carson not much your I can't stand people what's the deal with people you should ask Jerry Jerry Jerry. Things people are garbage. What he says in New York you see an abundance of that but you live in Idaho so there's very few people out there trees Maoris? Lots of trees how many people people live in the town that you're living in now. I want to say six thousand six thousand. What's the name of the town? Where where? Where is that located in South Central Idaho? Where do you fly into Hayley? Idaho a Hayley Idaho. No I have not. This is the first come visit. I would love to guest house. You bring the family nice snowmobiles builds the whole show we could broadcast we ask Fedex Catch Umbro with. That'd be great. quarterback moves was to catch him. Isn't that amazing. It's got like a quarterback moving them in Hasselt random madness yes so You hear what the air and ground stuff in the the Fedex player of the year nominees a Lamar Jackson Patrick mahomes Russell Wilson. Those are three really good ones. Those are the airplanes in the ground players. Derrick Henry Nick job in Christian McCaffrey and one of these guys. Of course Patrick Mahomes. We're going to see on the grandest stage in the Super Bowl. And the stuff that this guy is doing is just mind blowing From your perspective having played the game as long as you did. Are you just totally impressed with his skill and aptitude at this young of an age Blown away boomer. You got got a crush on him from day one. I remember that I don't know if we've seen an arm like this. I mean I I. I didn't play long enough when far was around. I'm just trying. I think of the Marina. Just trying to think of the velocity comparison. I I just don't I don't. I can't name another quarterback that has that kind of arm talent that we've I've seen arm talent vinny. Testaverde Vinnie was here just before you and I was thinking about that. He's a guy that never gets talked about about throwing the football and if you go back and you watch youtube videos of vinny testaverde throwing the football. He had one of the best arms of his era. But you're right. I mean Patrick. You know along with the poise in the arm. Angles that sometimes. Sometimes he gets himself entangled in and still throws it with accuracy is is the thing that really just catches me. We're in touch to a lot of guys with with an absolute hose. Rose don't have the ability to kind of fed the ball in on those fifteen and twenty yard comebacks when they're kind of laying it over a linebackers head and getting it down to the comeback route for a guy was such a powerful arm. He's got such such finesse and such touch on the ball to which is that that combination You know you're right when you think back to vinny testaverde and Randall Cunningham had a hose. But I don't know if we've seen an arm quite like Patrick's when I think about Jimmy Garoppolo's and if see championship game name. I asked boomer this question I ask you the same thing I mean. He didn't do anything in the game now. His team went to the Super Bowl weight. But you hold on yeah hold on. Don't okay you're is that he did everything he was asked to do. I get it. I'm not knocking him. The question is what he does to me here. He doesn't even let me get the thing out. He's already rolling on. I just get frustrated. No no no I'm not not. I'm not going where you think I'm GonNa give me enough credit all right as a competitor when your team goes to the Super Bowl you know that you ran the ball down the other teams throw put. You weren't asked asked to do a whole lot because you didn't have to is party like man. I wish it would have had a little bit more in this game plan. You know the first thing that comes to my mind when I think about that is this is how good it must feel upfront for. When you're the quarterback in your offense lineman absolutely just grinds it out and pounds the ball down? Somebody's throat that confidence. Silence that swagger that that offense align in San Francisco's walking into the Super Bowl with is what would excite me being the quarterback just knowing the confidence those guys have that they can just shove the ball down. Somebody's throat however you get super bowls how you get to the Super Bowl. I mean paddle care. He's in the Super Bowl. The way number one seat and he threw more touchdown passes and Patrick problems now. Patrick got heard this year but still his numbers speak for themselves. He's a quality quarterback. Here's what people don't understand. When he gets the line of scrimmage you'd I think he just runs a play that they call from the sideline he has to go up there? He has to read the defense and then he has to communicate to the other ten guys. What running play that? They're actually going to run. So there is a underrated part of what he is doing. In what many people think is one of the best offenses that they've ever seen simply because it looks traditional but it's not because of all the intricacies that are part of it and we could sit here for hours talking about this. You can throw game manager on Jimmy Garoppolo all day long but the greatest quarterback in the history of the League was a great game manager. Tom Brady so I mean you you you can say he's. He's just done enough to get his team here but the point is his teams here. There were the one seed in the. NFC SEE I. You know I think back to some of the regular season games. The game he had against Arizona is Washington play against the cardinals in Arizona. He made like six third down throws rose under duress off-balance accurate balls to win the game that Minnesota I mean you you think he had some big moments at the end of games. which is I I I could care less how how many pass attempts but when you look back at the season and what he did on third down on the critical games to get them the number one seat he played lights out in the big plays on third down? He's got a better passer rating than Patrick. Mahomes does in the fourth quarter but Patrick mahomes better overall on third down. You know. And that's the quarters. That's the fourth quarters. The quarterback quarter third down at the quarterbacks place so they both are reflective of how successful their teams were in their place. By the way Patrick Bombs homes is twenty seven and thirty one games in Jimmy Garoppolo. Jimmy Garoppolo is a starting quarterback twenty one and five the winning quarterback oversight okay. How did it those numbers speak? What about I do talk? Speak Him to geos point though. I do hope for his sake that he gets to get that it gets temp about thirty passes passes and he throws about two hundred and eighty five yards maybe two touchdowns and they win because I think if they throw more than that that means her in a high game shootout or high scoring and shoot out and they're not GonNa do that. It'd be if that does happen. If San Francisco wins a ball controlling type game. It'll be interesting to see who the MVP plays out to be reminded me somebody on defense could be one of the running backs could be. It could be kiddle. It'll be interesting. What happens with that and you were in Cincinnati? Who's the bet was Baltimore? The best defensive player Pittsburgh Doc. They were wanting to every year and they were always talking always trapped in defensive players of pain in the ASS. Those teams I know grocers. Bright Paula. Malo and ed read all those guys. When you see the San Francisco Forty niners and you know what Patrick Mahomes is going to be faced with? Well how do you think he reacts. Yeah it it's different when you think back to those Baltimore teams with with Ray Lewis and Ed Reed and Terrell suggs in. And then you think back to the Pittsburgh days he's in the zone blitz. What's different San Francisco's? They're doing it with four guys that they're pushing the quarterback with four guys so they can double George biddle. They can double Emmanuel Sanders. There's some he's going to be one on one but they can double to two or three of their players outside because they create so much havoc upfront with just four guys get after the quarterback. So it's it's something we saw years ago in New England when they were playing the giants in the head Strahan and Osi Manure and all those guys up front where they could rush for and double all. Brady's guys guys it's that good of defense. It's that good of a front. That San Francisco has rob salt lasala. Who has the whole Seattle background defense with you know Pee Caroline and Dan Quinn down in Atlanta and everybody feels like they have the keys to unlock that scheme of defence which has been exploited over and over and over again it kind of got a little stale but what makes a scheme great or the players and let's face it. They got five former first. Round draft picks all along that defensive line top ten picks in the first round picks top five picks. You really look at it. You know that that that defense is great because he just play cover one and cover three. It's really to coverage is it's a little bit of mix up on third down and you do a little bracketing in the red zone. But really it's two very simple defenses single high zone and single high man and they did it forever in Seattle because they had had you know Michael Bennett and in cliff April Russian the passion they had Sherman. You know you go. You go across the board great players defensively. You've got the same thing going in San Francisco. You got great players are playing cover. One cover three brackets and the rest for the quarterback doesn't it there's nothing really to read. You know you know where you gotta go go with the ball but the problem is you got Joey Bosa breathing down your neck to have the time to make the read and this is an athlete. Ted Can make the time and extend the time. That's one thing we've seen from Patrick Mahomes. That's been pretty impressive. It'll it'll be impressive to see him. Do it against this defense. We've seen him do it. But against this kind of defense. We'll see if you can do it against this defense talking to Carson Palmer is here on behalf of Fedex Aaron Ground Fedex GonNa make a twenty thousand dollar donation to the USO and the name of both the winning quarterback and running back totaling forty thousand dollars When you watch football born it's funny watching boomer when he goes back and watches the film and he's pointing out to me and he totally gets into it? When you watch football is is it impossible for you to just sit back and watch the game or you just totally back and quarterback mode like that defense running this defensive to do that as your mind going? It used to on the field when you're watching football these days. You can't quite do it when you're when you're watching you know alive alive game. You can't see the whole picture. The cameras on the quarterbacks face tailback in the backfield builder and so you don't get the whole perspective so it's hard to it's hard to really analyze it and look at it. I'm watching like a fan. I'm watching you know. Former guys I played played against or guys. I played with rooting for them. I'm rooting for my cardinals I if you don't get a chance to really evaluate and see the entire scheme that that's you. You know the defenses playing on every play. Because you're so transfixed the cameras on the quarterback or the cameras on the ball but I'm watching a fan I I would like I do like watching game cut ups instill doing that but I'm a fan now. I am in my fantasy my fantasy my fantasy team I got my kids are cardinal fans So I'm watching it with my family and Bengal fans we'll watch BINGO games against Cardinal Fan Ring of honor guy for the bengals right inducted locked into that and the ring of Honor Yeah it was awesome September against against the seahawks job. They put your name up and put. My name is really cool off school. Wait a second. There is no ring of honor. Oh really there was there is there is a ring leave it or not. There is State Farm State Farm Stadium. What I'm totally knows now? We're talking about Paul Brown stadium in Cincinnati. Oh Oh yeah no the Bengals Ring Ring of honor the ring of honor their would you in the ring of honor in Arizona adding I'm talking about the Bengal. They're the only team in the NFL doesn't have a ring of honor are they. The only and we went through this the credit. Really the only team right. Yes are you sure on that. Yeah okay I guarantee he was the truth. I'm telling you any team. These think wouldn't have a ring of honor on Google. Texans you Texans have a ring of Andre Johnson. I think he was also. There's a ring of honor guy. Okay Texans Ring around here there you go look. There's there's John should be the first guy. No Oh Kenny Anderson Kenny. Anderson's should be the first right behind IOS right Chad Johnson. Who Schmid's out I mean there's there's a lot of great players players? There's a come through the it's alive. Why don't you start? This sleepy franchise the franchise that time has forgotten. It's stuck in one thousand nine hundred seventy joe boroughs. Charles GonNa make a big difference on these definitely going there. He's definitely the number one pick. Okay do you think do you think I think they would actually make a trade where I mean I I would not count out really okay. All right I'm never I don't ever let yourself this. This is hard spill. Garcetti surprise it was two thousand and two. You just won the heisman. I handed you a Bengal helmet before the bengals even got the first round the first overall pick and I welcomed you to the Cincinnati bengals. I did the same thing as I told you what Joe Burleson was. It was very poignant moment between us and Joe Turner Feeling Komo News between those two. Those two hands it did flew by did really fly by. But I I. I'm saying Joe Barrel he's going to the bengals on telling you okay now. What do you think of Justin? Herbert Kit Morgan I like job borough a lot more right but man he looks good. It looks good. Yeah absolutely absolutely senior bowl. MVP last year and had great practices according to me. That's what I'm saying the practices when you're out out there against NFL caliber talent is when you separate yourself from the pack right Carson.

The morning show with boomer Esiason and Greg Naughty boomer and Geo poorer. Go on the fan and CBS. Sports network live from radio row and joining us right now. Former New York jets quarterback really excited to talk to him. Mini is here on behalf of Waco's our triple zero the official yogurt of the NFL. That is Mark Sanchez mark. Good morning thank you. Thanks for having me still looking good man outside. By the way you're you're you're doing your thing and rookie hazing No nothing here by means and so how do you like it. It's it's been an experience. That's for sure I've enjoyed in football. You're just critiqued constantly right every day and you don't hear much right when you start on. TV At least. I didn't and so like three four five weeks have gone by and I'm doing this call show with Kevin Kevin Ghandian Jonathan Vilma. I'm like Hayes. Am I doing okay or is this bad or good. They're like has anybody talked to you yet and I said No. That's a good thing you're doing. Find US doing fine one thing. I can tell you watching you and Jonathan Together. You genuinely like each other. We've really there's a comfort there and I think you do love I will. I'll say this I think you'll love co covering college football more than you do the NFL. I and I pushed hard to do more. NFL early on it's just it's it's different. It's a different animal. And when you when you're just so recently removed from it you have so many friends and former teammates and coaches and so talk so hard to say. Yeah I think so and so's going to win and then I think about the that I had or the other coach on the other team hundreds of ood a marked exact. We've we got to talk to those people later in the week and say hey man sorry I picked against they said Oh. We didn't even see it. I I don't care I'm like Oh okay does it right. Oh Yeah. There's there's more reasonable people out there that unreasonable Believe it or not so. You're one of the most interesting figures to me in New York sports in the last couple of decades. Because you are as the quarterback of franchise that is so desperate for success a rabid fan base you go to back to back. AFC Title Games. I mean you are the man Dan and then it seemed like it just disappeared quickly. You know and there's not a lot of jet quarterbacks that have had the success that you had there but yet when people talk about you sometimes I feel like there's more about the the end of the career what could have been than than what was. I do think though that time time is going to serve you. Well people are GonNa look back God. He'll go mark Sanchez. Did with this team when you look back on it. What are what your overall thoughts of your career with? Listen listen it started off white hot. We're talking like a firework. This thing was going and had the right trajectory but boomer knows you gotta develop a quarterback quarterback constantly it takes years and years and years and by year three. I think after the successive year to bring all the the veteran leadership around and sign a bunch free agents. She's me you I think we fell in love with that idea. So then the next year we go signed two new receivers guys who signed PLAXICO burress signed Derek Mason guys who I hadn't worked out with a bunch and you gotta develop a reporter with these guys. Dustin Keller had finally at had taken off in Ghana Miami Right Guys get injured. Things Change coaching staff. Changes offense changes. And it's I I mean every year was revolving door every year was a new formula instead of maybe a draft and develop mentality it was. Let's go sign some of the best guys on the market and see what happens and every time you do that you kind of roll the dice it just it just became difficult for everyone in as boomer noses well you know you're you're either the hero or the goat and doesn't work out. It's just say well see you later and then I woke up in Philly reality. That is that's part of becoming a professional quarterback and understanding all of that but I think the success that you had early on ended up hurting two reasons one. I never thought you were a great match with with REX. Ryan Rex Ryan was bombastic. He was big. He called you the sanchis and all this other crazy stuff and put an enormous amount of pressure on you and you guys got the two. AFC Championship game. Set the bar so high and maybe your personality type wasn't the personality type for that. I always thought that a coach for you would have been a guy like bill. parcells treated Vinny Testaverde. He would've been tough on you behind the scenes and you would have either you know adhere to it and God something out of it or you would have you know backed down and he would have said. You're not going to be the quarterback for me. I just thought that REX was mismatch. Now there was a blessing lesson with rex because she knew the defense is going to be good. It was off right and it was so fun to be around. I mean you look at different styles. There's a million ways to skin a cat you know there's a million ways to try and win we were into that ground and pound mentality and then work the play action stuff get me out on the move and then you know as I started to develop a little more dropback stuff but listen. I wouldn't change anything. They're just because I know your thoughts on it. I understand maybe potentially an offensive guy or the guy with into different Irish now. Today's World College at Cal Shannon would be sure perfect coach for you and this San Francisco team would have been the perfect team and the reason. I say that would be the perfect team for a lot of us a lot of guys but I think kyle with the way that he's handing Jimmy Garoppolo over the last two years has been really sure perfect also so felt like what. Patrick Mahomes was drafted by Kansas City. Andy Reid was like the perfect guy for Noda so sometimes those matches happen. I just thought early on because you had a defensive coach. He was bombastic. Had never been a head coach before. Put you in a very tough spot and there was a Monday night game you played in Baltimore. It was Monday rose Monday Sunday. Night I think the first play the sack fumble for a touchdown right right so so you didn't have Nick Mangold in the game. Remember now if you remember after that game it was just talking ground and pound just like you talked as owners like He. Had you a program to say that here this morning Canada way were we built right so I remember that Monday after that game or the Tuesday whenever that game was I was arguing not arguing but talking to my former co host creek. Horton saying look. They can't next week. Come out and only let let him throw ten passes. He's gotTa throw sixty times and I don't care if he throws interceptions because now this is going to stunt his develop Sir and I thought they got overprotective with you. I think maybe in some ways I don't know hindsight's twenty twenty. Listen I think if some of the guys state healthy here there and you know the margin for error in this league is so small so you know one play here. One play their changes perception a little bit and maybe we stick together a little longer. Maybe we you know get through one of those valleys and get back up to one of the peaks that we should have been an and the change. Russell were playing in the era of Brady Rothlisberger rivers and of course pay not just in that era. We had to play for money twice a year to play all those four quarterbacks in the AFC yeah no doubt to get to get to where you wanted to go. It was It was tough sled talking to mark Sanchez. Who is here on behalf of Waco triple zero? The official yogurt of the NFL and Co's Yoga. gluts a new super bowl ahead ED featuring Dak Prescott and you so you're gonNA put your your button on the screen is that what's going on here. Hit movie part of it. They talk about You know there's no. Artificial flavors has got a ton of protein in it. So it's more for guys that are the power behind you got all right so you're showing your bigs eggs. Yeah of course. Yeah show Mike gluts. Everybody wants to see Now when you when you go back and talk about that time with the jets is it difficult for you to go back and think about Batte. 'cause it's a lot of success but there's also some down things and you feel like you're rehashing the same stuff over and over and it's difficult to go back. Usually people are much nicer. Hi Sir about it than Youtube. No no I thought about so many times but you can't help as a competitor competitor thinking like God. I mean we're down twenty one to three against the steelers like or were winning at halftime against Peyton manning and the colts my rookie year. I walked in the locker room my rookie year and and I'm like Oh my God we're going to the super bowl right. Snap out of it. Let's go that's focused right and you know you're just so close so those are the things I remember the most not like a man that one incompletion or Gosh. We should've converted down or whatever it's those kind of things how close you were and what we really had not. I think appreciating tasting it more now because I never knew I just thought that was what happened right. You know I come from. USC In high school we want a ton of games in college. We want a ton of games we've had success and so the first real adversity was in the NFL and that's not an easy place to to figure it out and especially in New York. I was like Whoa. This is this is a different an animal. So you know there. There's another guy in New York. That sounds a lot like you at times and his name is Sam Darnold. How well do you know Sam really well okay? So what Wisdom Wisdom. Have you kind of help them with Russia. No No. He's going to be just fine. I think the Him And I like you said coaching coaching styles. Yes there's not quite as much pressure I mean. Nobody was expecting the jets. I mean after a couple of big Free Agency moves last offseason. Sure people expected a lot I went on TV and said they're going to go thirteen and three because they asked me back in like March. What am I selling? He had mono he started the year on a on a low note boom and comes right back and played pretty. Well I I mean look at look at the cast of characters around him when when he had his post game reminiscent of the butt fumble game or no. Did you have any flashbacks. Did you feel bad. One hundred percent lutely reach out to him and dialogue as I said. Listen if anybody knows these kind of buzzwords in this city yes ask dude just Holler if you need anything and so we spoke a little bit about it but the the issue for me is. When's the last time you heard Brady Mike on Monday night? When's the last time I heard you know those kind of guys? And who's the final say while the jets should have been. They made a mistake. Exactly my point but SAM has has to wear that like did anybody from Italy which is and that's not the word saying like oh I'm seeing ghosts out there it's man and I don't know what the Heck's going on I'm confused. This is hard. This is difficult. There's some we haven't seen so people think immediately equate it to like. Oh He didn't study or Oh maybe he doesn't know what's going on. Maybe he's not ready for this state. He's ready for the stage. That's bs so I know exactly what he was saying. Exactly we all felt it. They're all up here. It feels like you're planning planning is thirty defenders right. What the Hell's going? What are you seeing? Somebody help me out here right and nobody does seem to help him out. He seemed like he was on an island by himself. It's really unfortunate. And the fact that he played so well against the cowboys a few weeks prior to that and there was such hope now for the justice he had come back and then they lose the Miami. They lose the Jacksonville. They have the beggar going into that thing. Why are we making him up? Screwed is what happened. You go on the air but I'm just saying like four. That game aimed defense towards the end of the year kind of travel Monday night football. NFL understand but at the at that point in the season that defense bill was like the eighty five bears or better. I mean this was incredible group of guys and what they were doing on the field was insane. Ain't so why set them up for failure like that. It just didn't seem like the right. Move how you felt watching the game but when that happened I just want Oh my God of course is going to be the major story Jacksonville. It's not you know it's not somewhere on against England and here we go. I felt I really felt bad for I. Did you talk to them like during the week. L. We we spoke all season. Just good actually hear that and I'm constantly you know. Listen to get you got a million voices in your ear. I'm just telling you my experience. Boom here's what I know policy name. How old are you your rookie season? Twenty to see I mean San was twenty rookie season was very well. He's he's going to be twenty right. Yes and I'm saying you're still the thirty year. Twenty two rookie season tend to forget about selling them weapons. Get him what he's going to develop. He's he's GonNa be fine he's going to be good for him I think they're doing all right. I think wait a second. I'm telling you that I think yeah there's more to that. I'm I'm just saying give it a little time. It's been one year. When don't you like about gays has got it? There's nothing I don't like about gas right now. Give them some time. Everybody jumped on him week four week. Five and it's like dude darnold hasn't even played like what are we. What are we criticize? I say played week one with Mono Yeah then missed the next three weeks. Yeah we're games. Essentially the first of the season people right off the jets. Well okay what. What are the circumstances? They're pretty crappy so I don't know what to tell you I don't know if that's a fair assessment plus the GM doesn't even have a chance because he gets signed late to have any impact on on the team and now this is where Joe. Douglas is now gonNA take over. And he's got to try to rebuild these offense defensive lines and hopefully stands up front it starts starts up Front Waco's triple-zero the official yogurt of the NFL and you could watch a super bowl commercial. Vote you guys soubra commercials around allowed to talk about boomers Out to not yet. But we talk about marks is got DAK Prescott. saquon Barkley Mark Sanchez and Angels Pete Showing their gluts because the yeah insure strengthened. The I don't understand why they picked me. I have nothing to do with but I just don't get get it. I do remember this mark and we kind of touched on a little bit above whatnot Joe. Here's the deal your rookie year your rookie year. Your your your jet. Maybe for about three months two months whatever. was you decide to come to my all star game the empire challenge over at Hofstra. So you meet my daughter. My daughter Sydney this was what two thousand nineteen I think are two thousand nine and on their forget because my my kids were not like jet fans or giant fans. My my son likes Green Bay packers. My daughter liked the cowboys because they had a star or whatever so all of a sudden she becomes. It's like dyed-in-the-wool Aiden Wall Jet Fan and I'm like what happened. She was only met Mark Sanchez. Well she was in high school. I remember yeah I know. I know it's all. I had dreamy Mark Doc Sanchez. Yes I appreciate that Marcus. Yeah my wife to this day says that you are the most attractive man. Older seen play sport. He hasn't the scene Jimmy G.. Trying off you onto Jimi Cheetah I know he is. That is a handsome man. All right mark we appreciate your time. This is pretty handsome. Look into plus. They're all better looking than me. And it's very very good market to see a man morning show with boomer Esiason and Greg Hardy boomer and Geo. We're talking with Dr Gordon Mint. You hear the Geo show the Sporty as he decided to stop by and say hello and as I. I'm actually meeting Gardner and I know. CBS Sent Bent Phil Simms down the interview now. That was probably pretty boring. Old Guy Remember him. Yeah do we get the Gardeners Mike Gone Near. Eddie go yes you so how about this. We were back for twenty seconds. We didn't even know it. I thought someone said you're back in twenty seconds I said no you've been back for twenty seconds but Yeah so the thing that I was looking at this it's all on tv great joy anyway so we were talking while while we're on the air and we didn't know it About this mustaches. You have that you you shaved off and then you put in a bag and now you're trying to raise money for charity with this right where we're did this whole idea. Start now so okay when I I grew mustache in At Ecu had to shave it because it wasn't strong enough yet so Shaved off into the Ziplock Bennett on my bulletin board. And I found it the other day I was like. Wow this is a special stuff. Found him like on the bill because distilling bulletin board okay so pulled off the bulletin board. I was like wow this is this needs to be seen So yeah put it up and you must have missed the donations going to the the human fund money for people. Yes George Costanza there. Yeah we go by the way. I like your headband. I'm a big big myself. I can't pull it off but yes I definitely. KFC Championship game. You look like a sixty year old woman. I mean come on it all. He's well I look like a fifth good brother Kenny. Loggins or something so the thing I respect about you the most is you so genuinely you and it doesn't seem like you care what anybody thinks and that's to me like that's something that not a lot of people can achieve and you've been able to achieve that at at a young age. Yeah I don't know what it is. I guess you know parents raised me right. Yeah told me to you know have conviction and what you do and what you say and Got Me would you say good parents. We we saw a lot of your dad. Dad's big man yau growing up. Like how is he is a dad to you. And what impact impact did he have on you to create this player that we see before us. Yeah as you can tell. He's not a very athletic guy. He's he's he's always my first. I coach Raised up in ball every sport played And the biggest lesson I remember as you know the only thing you control is how hard you work as a thing I remember hearing from beginning sports on and carried me for anything. WHO's the most famous East Carolina quarterback other than you owe David Garad? Ah Jeff Blake. Are there you go. Yeah former teammate. Former New Year and ninety Bengal order back the NFL born yet. Probably so you are here. We have snickers and you're the hungriest player of the year for the two thousand nineteen season. And you've got the chain. The snickers snickers chain which is valued at seventy five thousand dollars. And you're going to donate to movember. Worked raffled off to generate proceed and supportive PORTA men's health initiative. So the hungriest player man. I think because probably you know your history and the draft story and everything else in here. You were starting games and winning winning games and and sort of igniting that fan base. That's pretty cool. Honor knows also a man You know to be able to donate money to move member. Also obviously you know really really cool thing But Yeah I guess the fans light me pretty good so they vote for me and that's how you win things like this and you had It was kind of a magical season even though it was a disappointing season for Jacksonville and everything that went on down there. I'm just trying to think. Can you think of another quarterback that was drafted in the sixth round that has had any successes. NFL none off the top of my head. Yeah well as I know that you're kidding because we all know that it is Tom Brady and the one thing. I think that you could probably take is the similarity where from where you were drafted and the fact that you got thrust into something because somebody in front of you got injured which is unfortunate in the NFL but it does happen and you seize the moment and you seize the moment to the point that when Nick foles came back he unfortunately didn't perform well and they gave the starting job back to you. We use surprised by that I was I was. There's no bigger fan. Nick foles posing me every time. He's out field praying. You know some way. Let them score so he can play and he can do well and we can help us win but when it was my turn to get called I know I've got a team that I can't let down that put in too much work for me to be the one to mess that up for them so I was just trying to pull my weight and do my part talking to Gardner Minhsiu. So what's what's this whole thing about the like the stretching naked or something. What was that story? That thing took on a legend of its own like after games. You'd be there like doing some like naked yoga or something with Do you know after you know after every time I throw so. It's typically just at some point when I'm undressing. I see him. I'm like any do these. You know so but a Lotta Times. It did happen whereas in Jockstrap. Not Intentionally John. Where was this Most time Washington State You know I did a couple of times uh-huh in Jacksonville but there. There's there's some opposition there. What was what was playing for? Mike Leach was awesome. You know what you you see on. TV like what did you see in the interviews. That's all the time right. He like he doesn't treat anybody differently he treats everybody the same. He says exactly what he's thinking There's a blast platform. What is his playbook like? Because I always see him on the sideline with a little piece of paper I mean how does that work. Yeah no so he on that script. He has thirty open-field open-field plays ten red zone. Five goal on two point and he'll go down. Just go down the list and then usually we get the second you want to go to the top and Mike. Let's go to the top so it wasn't like now trying to digest as a rookie. A professional offensive game plan and game an offensive game book. Yeah it just takes time You either fortunately for me. I was kind of well-versed and you know I went to four different schools in college able to learn a lot of different offenses and kind of get that you know. I guess my system for learning that down down So when I when I got there just investment time putting the work in Until you ever wanted to give up on your dreams like no absolutely not you know as a lot of times. uh-huh when you know nobody would have bet that it'd be where I am today but I know I would under my family will. No I have some friends that would have bet that so. That's all that really matters. So there's some change their Jacksonville Jacksonville. Of course head coach is going to remain there but Tom Coughlin no longer there. We know Tom Carlson from his years in New York. They wanted Tom. Tom Coughlin think of you in your personality. You guys have a relationship with good. Tom Actually loved me which I was thinking. He's probably GonNa hate me you know but he I think he loved it because You know he likes when People Like Jab back atom a little bit and give them a little so we always always had a great time with Tom and he's a guy like when he's in the building you feel his presence like wherever he is. We know Tom's there He's definitely going to be missed. And you know he's a big part of We got to Jackson. I know it's hard to ask this of a rookie. But your impressions with the fact that they kept your head coach. Yeah I think is great. I think everybody in the locker room believes in coach. Marrone believes in what we're building You know I think we had moments during the season that we saw You know what we should be and where we could be And the biggest thing is just finding consistency in that. Are you a I guess nick polls is going to be back next year is simply because his contract is going to dictate tape that they owe him a lot of money and there's no way they're going to let them go. So is this an idea that this is going to be an open competition. Have they told you anything. Yeah so that's that's the plan right now Actually when I was out in California had lunch nick had a great conversation. We just want we want the best for each other and we want the best for our team so we're going to battle it out you know. Try to make each other better. And and that's eventually you'll make our team right now. I mean that's that's refer and I actually believe you when you say that Israel because knowing how great a Guy Nick foles is sitting with you like you guys is really. You're going to have a like sort of Nice competition training camp. I'm just trying to fathom like me and Phil Simms on the same name team would try to reach across the table and strangling yes. That's what you know this situation. It could've gone south so many different ways so many different times but there's literally nobody nobody I would have rather gone through with a neck just such a genuine dude and you were both. We both want to see each other do well all right. We'll hold up that SNICKERS CHAIN TO OUR TV TV audience here that thing's beautiful seventy five thousand dollars on QVC watches in the off-season abs- ABS- absolutely Joel. That money's GonNa go to Movember once auctioned off Gardner Mint you everybody you got the RV or whatever that the mobile Ho- what are you. What are you riding Uh I'm back in two thousand eleven accurate man I had to turn the RV and that was a tough moment for me so you tell them. Just apply yourself to your craft Gardner and believe me you'll be able to drive whatever the hell you wanNA drive about.

I thought you might be here on the behalf of Pizza. Ranch's well you love that pizza rent I do love featuring range so welcome how you doing how you feel and after the season doing well certainly. You're always disappointed when you're not playing this weekend. Only only one teams happy at the end but talk about coming away from this season and as we look forward to twenty twenty so all in all feeling good and they can around here this week and then we'll kind of jump into the off season Rei. I just want everybody to know out there that I won. The Bat occur. We had a bet with the guys behind the scenes over here. That wouldn't take a ten seconds for Gio to show you his Jesus now I basically took me out of the conversation because I sat here and just watch you two guys decipher and and just break down the entire. Actually yeah I gotta be honest with you. I was kind of cool. So that New Orleans gay man like that. That was so much fun it was. I can't even imagine being you and and you were after that game. You said all the right things but let's be honest. We were all thinking fans as you teammates a game like that meant more to you in your career and perception of you. Then then maybe some other guys because those two throws you maiden over time I'm with the throws at people said that you had you know struggles with during your career so you said it's not about me. It's about the team. That's the right thing to say but there had to be some sort of personal victory for you after that. No well there's certainly victory with perception reception isn't always reality but there was victory in. Perception is a playoff win. Certainly helps you know when you're with any team. Playoff playoff wins is kind of what it comes down to. It was funny because we had played a sixteen game season a long season to grind into the ups and downs. You make the playoffs and you realize going into that game against the saints. Nothing we've done so far really matters because it will all come down to now. What's ahead of us in this playoff a stretch and so that's the nature of playing in the NFL? Is that you know it's about. What have you done for me lately? And especially within the playoffs so to get a playoff win with certainly up a big step so I think that that you know you hit at the right time and also the wrong time from an expectation standpoint from your own personal contract. That was the right time. It was genius purpose. What you did and you you bet on yourself gutsy ton of respect for that? But here's where I'll say you hit at the wrong time from a Viking Fan for perspective is he's here we are watching our team in the NFC championship game. You're the guy that comes in. We're going to the super bowl a week. Not Kurt. Howson's a ninety million dollar man Dan so so and that's lofty expectation to have but I felt like it was a realistic expectation? So then when you don't meet that you feel like you take a step back it. All Wolf falls on us so I think fair or unfair. I think that's where the criticism from Viking fans like me come from is that is understandable. All all that really matters to me when I was making my free agency decision was winning. Where can I go to win? And if that means going to team where the expectations are sky. High maybe unrealistically realistically sky-high. That's okay. I just want to win and so I'll deal with anything else that comes with that expectations. Whatever may be so I felt and still do looking back at the? Vikings are the right decision because of the chance to win not only these passed to seize have been there but going forward a great chance for me to be a part of a winning team so I understood expectations. Come with that. You know you look around the League expectations Dr Everything right when you're the browns and you have the record you have in two thousand seventeen and then go seven and nine and two thousand eighteen. Everyone's thrilled because of the expectations. Not being high then suddenly. You're the browns the expectations -tations are. You gotta go from seven to nine. I don't know thirteen and three whatever it may have been when you don't meet those. Your coach Kaz fire expectations dry everything and so they were high. But that's okay and and you just go to work into the best you can always tell Geo that pressure is a privilege especially when you get paid for that privilege and that pressure and that's something that you basically put yourself writing because you bet on yourself. Think about what he did you know. He had a chance to resign and extend with Washington. They try to get it done. But you resisted and then you wanted to pick where you went. I and I think going there was better than going to the jets because of the uncertainty there or the browns or maybe some other teams that. We're looking for free agent quarterbacks. You know the thing that I would want ask you as a former quarterback is now. You're in your third season going into your thirties with Minnesota. You're going to have your third offensive coordinator my fifth and five years which we all want consistency and say. I think that's what Tom Brady has enjoyed. For years with Josh mcdaniels he leaves and then he comes back and that consistency knowing the guy on the sideline knows you was a player and is going to put you in. The right situation is going to be good for you. Is Gary Kubiak going to be that guy for you. I know he was there on the staff last year so we obviously knows you very well right. So how do you feel about that change. Feel really good. I have a lot of confidence in Gary. His tracker speaks for itself but I enjoyed working within this past year. I love that. It's not going to be a brand new personality brand new voice. I've been talking to and working with for the last year. The system in general will will be the same and the staff will remain the same. So you're talking about working with the old line coach on protections and other things. Those people are all the same so the continuity will be huge. It is a different voice in my helmet. So you do deal with just a little bit of change. But I'm thrilled is going to be within the same system talking to vikings quarterback Kirk cousins on the fan and CBS sports network of sleepnumber quality. Sleep is important. We know that doing morning. Radio to maximizing performance. Yes you look very comfortable out. TV commercials that's why I kirk is here with us this morning. The game against the forty niners so I came out of that and I said off the air. I just felt like they were the better team that day. Because they're a better team that year in a pain me to say and not only on not even on the frigging team but it pained me to say it just felt like he couldn't get anything right and once you couldn't get anything going on the ground. The net made it tougher for you it just. It felt like you didn't have a shot watching it as a fan. I know he's not like that. The touchdown pass to digs was great ray was the digs touchdown and kendricks interception with the two things that cheered for after that it was just lowdown Lewis was fourteen ten at halftime and that was after we settle for a field goal in the kendricks intersection. So and I felt I missed a throw down there near the front pile on the left that if we hit that it's first and goal from the three or something like that so who knows. Maybe it's fourteen fourteen at halftime but certainly the second half did not. Yeah look at all like we were able to To win that game and They they they beat us and it's okay to admit that when it happens I'm not going to deny reality. They beat us. They deserve to be in the Super Bowl. Will and if anything you come away from that game even more saying boy next year future years you gotta get a one or two seats Because you gotta get that by And you gotta be able to host in the second round. If you can do that it does make the journey much different much easier. It's proven you can do it going on the road and being a six eight that you can do it. I thought a demon like Tennessee did but I started to believe because you guys are the sixty but you weren't really a sixty right like like an I'm I'm always negative. It's a thing we talk about on the Minnesota Vikings but and I. I don't admit when I'm positive. The team has won the franchise system you. I know how it goes. When you're a fan of this franchise learned about the history of it right? There's these these gut wrenching. Crushing losses are great. But you you get to that point you get smackdown Mac down there. You see the t shirts that people wear purple and gold to say just once in my lifetime and you know what they mean you know and it's because of all the teams in the NFL probably have come the closest closys the most times that have fallen short. That's the problem is you're you're in the toughest the vision in the NFL. I think the north is like just a beast every week. There's good defenses. The good coaches there's quality quarterbacks on the other team and I just think like when you come back next year after experiencing what you experienced from from the forty niners you know. Are they a team. That's going to be around now. And be good for years to come simply because of the youth of their defensive line and the fact that they can run the ball see they can run it and play defense. That's right some teams can only do one of the day can do both. Will you watch how quickly changes right. I mean they had the number two overall pick because of the season they had last year and the year before that was also a tough year for them and then suddenly during the superbowl and they're the best team in pro football so you see how quickly things can change you. Also know when they lost him Garoppolo to an injury how quickly their team dynamic change so staying healthy is a big deal in terms of which teams are standing at the end. And you just get back to work. I think if anything that loss galvanizes us as a team because we see we got some work to do and there's going to be a sense of urgency and understanding. We need to get better. This off season hopefully will use that as as a chance to be a good measuring. Stick for us that we can chase after as we go into next next year. How do you balance the tremendous success that you've had and the contract and he's got a beautiful family and all these things you got going for you but also uh-huh like you're chasing this thing all our you know what I'm saying? We all attia balance that 'cause like everything's great patrols like damn it. I wish I could just get. There's has no doubt and you live with that tension but so is every quarterback every GM every head coach. I mean the guy who can sit there and say oh I've I've got that and I'm good. Yeah there are few but it's not the majority we're all chasing it and you know judging by Tom. Brady's demeanor after winning six. He's chasing seven and there isn't really a contentment contentment. There and so I do think that is true of all of us. We're all getting up in the morning with a hunger chasing it. You know I wanted to ask you. I thought that you know early on in the season when feeling was talking about the offense digs was talking about the stuff that was going on and people try to make that about you. I thought that was totally unfair. The people saying that the wide receivers were complaining about you. That's not what was going on. No wide receivers. We're talking about how you need to throw the ball in the play calling the offense that you have always been John Anyway. She's a lot of people have. I'm not going to hide from that but I thought in that time. I said you know what that's unfair. They're not they're not backstabbing. You at all or front. Whatever that was more about the there are some times where I feel like people go after you just for the sake of going after you feel like when I criticize you got a good reason you you know but but these other times if you like sometimes you get stopping that it's okay? We're you know we're pro quarterbacks you take to go with the bad you've lived it now as part of the deal I don't I don't have the illusion lesion that somehow I'm going to go through and be unscathed be untouched. You put yourself out there you know. That's the risk you take but there's a lot of rewards that go with it and certainly yet. I don't believe it was really about me. It was is just you know fewer pass attempts were concerning them and we were running the ball so effectively in Dalvand had a pro bowl year. And so you could justify it but We just had to make more take advantage vantage more of the opportunities when they did come. You know I don't hear the forty niners wide receivers complaining right now. downfield making plays for their Their running docks. Here's the one thing I took out the New Orleans thing Kirk and I gotTa tell you it just it just reaffirms my initial thoughts of you when you came out of Washington was the fact that after the game. Your teammates look genuinely like so happy for you and you know you do the whole you like that and you read the whole locker room and all that other stuff so I think you're in a good spot. Is there a chance for contract extension as been in conversations with the. Are you going in again to your last year looking forward improving yourself again and getting another contract that way yeah. I think that the reality is look. I'd like to be in Minnesota. I'd like to finish my career. There play as long as I can there so go. As far as the conversation is those will be going down the road. But we're going in with the understanding that I I'd like to be a Minnesota Viking for as long as they'll have me live in Michigan Right. Yeah we bounce around but certainly you live the Michigan because it's attack reciprocation state perfect. I love your sparring thinking. Yes the anger. You're smarter all right. So sleepnumber Kirk cousins. It's a it's a it's a wonderful product and and the best and do you have a super bowl commercial to or not. I know super bowl commercial this year but dom before and sleep number. It's all about recovery. I want to play a long time like the guys that we talked about it. Do have the rings. Drew Brees Ben Rothlisberger and Tom Brady and all those guys and sleep is a big part of that not just quantity quality and so sleep. Number's away to go. And as we balance between Minnesota Michigan we stay on a sleep number bed in both places. Well listen I will be rooting for you. I'll be I'll be cursing you sometimes. You're but it's a common goal or curry. Want the same day it was just once in your life right yes absolutely. I can't imagine what it's going to be like when you actually do go to the super bowl get a second. You might have to put me into block one play. I'm going to be so fired up the next year. Let's do it all right. Let's let's do it. We'll see you there hard to say cousins on boomer and Geo pleasure to meet you kirk each morning show with boomer Esiason and Greg Naughty boomer in go consumer go on the fan and CBS. Sports Network live from radio road down to Miami. The sign of Super Bowl fifty four anytime I I see a man with a razor and some shaving cream is speaking my language and that is what Kyle long has us with us right now. Good morning thanks for being here. How are you good morning? Gentlemen it's nice to be in Miami. A little warmer. Yeah and you don't have to worry about a training camp or anything coming up anytime soon. Either right that's pretty nice. Yeah yeah that's the first thing. When is a step away from the game? They decide they're going to retire. The first thing we always hear is I don't have to worry about training camp that clock. That countdown is not happening. So of course. It's a tough decision for anybody. Who makes that decision? So walk me through you know y you decided and your your body telling you something. Well anybody WHO's played played the game at at the level that we have they'll tell you they know who they are on film and the second you you see the guy that's not you on film. It becomes clear that maybe you shouldn't be doing it because you don't accept average or anything less than what you expected yourself and honestly it was the easiest decision I've ever made. I've done some things in this league. That people can say they've never done. I've done special stuff. I've been apart of some cool teams and and been around tremendous men and women in the NFL but now it's my time to find out what the heck I want to do with my life while you're an e.. Sports Nascar on are you not. Yeah Oh that's a really owning a NASCAR team but it's an e sports NASCAR. It's a great way for the youth to develop in motorsports right now paying for tires fenders. So it's been great. It's something I got into a few years ago through a friend of mine named Jr Rodrigez and now we own mode motorsports and it's fun every week. During the NASCAR season we follow their schedule. So it's a lot of fun you know. Every time I run into one of you long kids I think about about how much I love your parents especially your mom because she dad you know. He's just a big old teddy bear. No the real deal. I visited you guys back I think you guys are like breath. Three four four and six or something and your dad's sick you guys on me and your Manhattan Beach House. Do you remember that day or now. I don't I do remember you my childhood but obviously so much time thirty one. Now it's like I think you're still the same size as you were nice. I can see you in here and just dep you up and give you a big hug. Yes like he's on our team. This is good. I've always been on a long tape interesting. I was watching you earlier in the season. You're obviously not right. Yeah there was something wrong and you talked about out what it looked like on film. I know it looked like to me and I do a call one to score a radio station out in Chicago and everybody wants to know Trubisky Trubisky trubisky and I know but he's also a lot going on right privy to and just give me a little. I know you're not planning more but you played they'd with Mitchell. Does he have what it takes. People ask me. Can the bears win with Mitchell. I said they have one right. But everything's gotta be right and that's just just the NFL. It's twenty two sets of eyes and special teams trying to be on the same page plan commentary football and teams like the Patriots. This have figured out a way to get guys to not be extreme and either way they kind of fall within a small a small variation and and last year I was bad. We had some guys who didn't play up to their potential and they know that they've said that but all I can do is take the blame myself. I didn't give him Mitch enough time. I didn't open lanes for running backs. And that's when you know it's time right. Maybe I'll get talking about now instead of playing. Well are you good with with a young man. I am at peace You know we spoke about it before the show. I don't have those nightmares. I can't I'm locked out of the stadium I forgot my cleats right. You know you show up on the field you look down here in the huddle yet. One clear on these are dreamed. The football players have had a weird dream last night. Yeah I did. I had a weird. We're here for Kirk cousins. I knew were gonNA interview Kirk cousins and I'm not going to tell you that Minnesota Viking Fan right off the bat. But I am As you being a former Chicago bear and pushing around my guys for many years but I had this dream that when he came up to the set he was doing something that was inappropriate. But I had to talk to him about it. What was he saying? And you liked that colonel. What you're doing this is gonNA hurt your image? You know you gotta you gotTa stop this. That that was my dream away was we know was not a wet dream. Just I was not a winter. Yeah he just went answer real quick way I you know. I asked Chris when he I think I ask versus when he came in to visit us. all your dad's movies what do you think is the worst was broken Arrow firestorm dollars thousand miles to Graceland as well. I think the I'm GONNA throw the Spaghetti Western out because I look on Youtube. I came find clips of in it. Okay thank God for Youtube because I can. I can be like my dad was in a movie. My buddies are. You're like no way and I'll be like pull this up. I think broken Arrow was really cool. Yeah because as a kid we had the ability to be on the set there we were in the canyons in in Arizona. I'm not I sure will air right behind a rock plug in your ears. And they're shooting blanks off and dad's got full military. Looks like a call of duty character so as a kid that was pretty cool. Firestorm was cool dirt bike so so you guys got all the benefits of his movies. Yeah it was growing up. He was a superhero us. And he's still is like honestly I mean that he's a superhero right. Now when you're in these moments where you know you're playing the biggest games against your brother other look up your family's in a luxury box. Are you able to understand how cool that is in the moment or because you're focused on the task at hand because you got to play play a football game you know sometimes you Kinda push that to the back of your mind well one thing. I've always relied on his dad's guidance even during the game I will find out where he is. Yeah if he can make it to a game. Obviously Dad Works on Sundays so Thursday nights and Mondays or the days that he could come to the game. Maybe Sunday night game on the West Coast. we played in Dallas. It was a Monday night game and they have those baseball dugout suites in the end zone and it was the first time where we break the huddle on the four yard line and we come out of the huddle my dad's they're going like this and the he's always pointing at your heart he's like Bryant bring it and and since high school I could look up from the huddle on the hill and my dad would be there like this or like this or like writing pointed to your brain. Don't be don't don't be an idiot idiot or keep coming right. There's three signals. You get heart keep going and keep it together. What happened when you got in a fight against Philadelphia? I think all the Hanser missed sign language. I mean that that was crazy. Did a ugly quick and I'm just trying to remember how that whole whole thing got started. What what exactly that? They're Josh mccown was plan. Yes he got hit. While releasing it was a fumble or incompletion. We don't know right right no whistle so I go in pursuit to take the angle on the linebacker who picked up the fumble and I get blindsided by one of Chris. Best friends who I hung hung out with this previous summer William Hayes who was a great guy okay but he was trying to get under my skin the whole game so I chased him down the field and pinned him and I didn't like getting achieved do anything to me. Don't cheap shot me so Chris Peel. Chris ran off the sideline peeled me off. Eleven rams around me Aram so it was rough. It was really rough. What was Chris trying to talk to your door to get? What was he saying? Do you remember anything that he was saying. Hey dumb ass. You're GONNA get that Fedex next week. And I didn't know that the fines came in Fedex. Fedex is coming on Wednesday and he was mad. I mean it was Thanksgiving our entire family with their own. But it's a story we can tell and fifty years when our kids are.

Certain shave care products at Walgreens dot com and Walgreens Also make sure to go in and use a four dollar alert coupon for cost off the raisers as well so it up for a guy like me who uses this stuff so much.

Show with boomer Esiason and Greg The boomer and Geo seed and you just start laughing and who's that Rob Ryan. Yeah Oh yeah it's like seeing like a like a Jesus walk and everything else. There's a lot of people they you see like now. Who is that that that guy is a guy that you know who that is right now the interesting thing and I gotTa tell you this just personal standpoint you know seeing You know Chris Kyle long and watching what they've grown up and knowing Dan Diana and how for as long as I have watching these kids come here and how they talk and how they speak manages. I'm so happy for that kid. I mean that's a great family Chris's brothers amazing and now finding out that ed how he is I mean. It's that's why I asked him like you understand like when you're in the middle of that how cool that is to be playing against your brother with your daddy your mom. I'm they're watching you. I mean it's like and then getting into a fight. Yeah no hysteria on Thanksgiving all right. Jerry's going to give us an update the first time in a while. What's up Jerry? Where brought to you by the Ray Catena Auto Group schedule an appointment today? At a rate Katina Service Center for First Class Service at affordable prices heavy on the football now is everything is pretty much in swing. So let's get to it. Here's Patrick Mahomes of the chiefs media. Yesterday he talks about this team being ready to go on Sunday being able to plan in every type of football game is prepared us to go out there and and win in whatever way possible. He says it doesn't matter how they have to do it. They will get it done eventually. At least they believe they will the the best thing about this team is. We've learned how to win different ways as far as scoring early scoring late Defense and US scorn enough. Yeah Yeah and here's Travis Kelsey in terms of the super bowl this week being ready to play and having that extra spark when you create energy that is infectious and it gives a it gives the people around you that you have a determined mindset to do something with a with a alert and aggressive mentality Kelsey Eh eh meantime on the San Francisco side. You've got Kyle Shanahan. Though he lost with the Falcons a few years ago had big lead. They wound up losing it and everybody is really throwing bouquets at San Francisco this year. He he says we ourselves in the mirror and we take it one game at a time every game we went into whether I was preaching not on those guys always the underdog and I'm always ready to go out there and compete and while there might have been a lot of positive noise around the team he says head down and grind halfway through the year. When you're eating and everyone's acting like are you? Are you guys starting to listen to the media and stuff. I mean. Our guys couldn't have been more opposite. You know the amazing thing is. This is his third year as the head coach. He's got a losing record as the head coach coach at the San Francisco Forty nine years. Yeah right because he had to miserable years and Yet Jed York stuck with them because he made a six year commitment to him and into GM John Lynch and also they lost Garoppolo last erling but in the end I forget which one of our guests said it maybe it was Carson Palmer. Whatever the the second pick overall in the draft Nick Bosa you know really was the final piece that made that this front seven you know on par with some of the great defense we've ever seen in the NFL? And that's why the key to this whole thing for the Kansas City chiefs is how are they going to deal with those athletes in the front seven the pressure they create in the passing game. Because Andy Reid doesn't like the run the ball he wants to throw the ball and he's got a kid that he trust immensely to make all the right decisions visions and then even make some great place so in this Super Bowl for me. If you're watching it it's how Patrick mahomes deals with the expected pressure. That's going to be coming from their front front. Seven of the forty niners Palmer also hates people. I learned today. It's not so much that he tries to stay away from Chris. True he he told us flat out hates people. It's like the the president of the the People Hating Association that you're a part of it. He's he's the West Coast Chapter Way. These the Idaho Carson. Jason Palmer I. It was too bad. You're going to the bathroom or something interviewing like. He's like eight people like nonchalant eighty two picture. Of course people are garbage. That is a fact Phantom everyone else at some point is going to let you down. Yes you don't ever disagrees. They just laugh already hates everybody. And everybody's greedy wants the money because that's what everything's about the world is filled with crappy people they do crappy things. Yeah I have to say that you are not crappy. Last night you know the ball that was probably I tell me if I'm wrong in the two plus years we've been together in this iteration of the show. That was the happiest all of us. Were at the same time like usually. There's a one of us like well. I'm grumpy AL's grumpy somebody's grumpy. Like we were all at our like p because everything is right but you know why everything was very smooth getting here. You best the best way to my life. Everybody's healthy again. Yeah right so that's got a part of it. I think that was like when together. It was not a single one of our no Reagan. The grouped grouped on. We were all and we're all ten. You gotta keep it going man every wearing nothing more than a cat that gets hit by a car. Step the living beings that are gone. I don't know I don't know what I said that I have no idea when I said that when ever since the cat getting in his car rutgers thinking listen you separate the two. That's right. I ed do that from timing. Heard yes that is true. Anyhow what else we got Let's skip ahead to Mike we're going to get to. The Knicks skipped one skip to the Knicks. The third one'll be the knicks because they played in Charlotte last night. We get to some basketball timeout before I do that. Because one more the football the passing of Crystal Crystal when we found out late eight last night hall of Famer just fifty eight years old passed away from cancer so do not WanNa overlooked at all as we're trying to rush through. This also thought they thought they scorn Akia leaving. Their hatred is retiring. After thirty six years in the League. Thirty four with New England. You know not not to be Morbid but here we go again you know. We had a string of SAM lifestyle. David Stern died died You know you Kobe Bryant Bryant Dying Chris Doleman dying. I mean this is just. It's just one bad story after the next. Yeah Yeah really and this was battling brain cancer. This was was expected but still a life cut short. He's only fifty eight years old gap. Raise terrible All right to the basketball knicks. Losing last night in Charlotte walk past throws a damn might please falls creek while the winning by five ninety seven ninety two Mike Breen on MSG Knicks started this game. I'm relatively well. But then things really fell apart for them. Here's Elfriede Payton had trouble scoring. Did the next after that good start. We didn't give ourselves a no space each other no space. I think we didn't really make X.. As in S.. Take some they fall to thirteen and thirty five on the season. Miles bridges had fifteen eighteen. Terry Rozier had thirty also from the NBA. You had the bucks. beat the wizards won fifty one. Thirty one notable there because Chris Middleton played from Milwaukee Janas Santana Okubo not on the floor he either arrested or was hurt not sure Middleton fifty one points in that game eight hundred fifty one point an NBA game over under wasn't that is it always always that when a replacement or backup player for an opposing team gets on the court they score fifty points. Notice that that happened here tonight in Houston That was Eric Gordon who had fifty into today's NBA. There's GonNa be a ton of scoring. It's about opportunity for players. Eric Gordon didn't have that opportunity before with Russell so Westberg and James Harden he got the opportunity he took advantage of it so the points are always going to be there. It's just a matter who's going to get them that's why I think they should take the three point. Shot Away for three quarters. Quarters three quarters yes. I think it's going to go the other way. I think we'll watch long. We'll see a four point. John I really do. These guys will make them. Yeah and there'll be a half court shot for ten points in our. Do you really need other players on the floor. They want just have geysers hoisted. Them shots makes the most. Yeah I mean that's sort of what's going going on now sort of I mean I say you take the three point. Shot out for three quarters and then you play real basketball for those two recorders and then the fourth quarter of the team is down by by significant amount that can get backed by hoisting threes to free for all the Kobe. Bryant situation players continue to mourn. His passing here was Kevin Durant ran to says been pretty difficult to hover around. Space was was enjoying those emotions historic going. On coach he says just happy that he was able to watch him do what he did when he did it. Who lived life to the fullest joy? I was able to be born in Eighty Geico so I can catch. Did you see Lebron's comments. I mean I saw posted. I did not see anything updated. Something recent he's going to carry on his Lakers legacy he feels like it's his care Duty now in life to carry on the legacy of Kobe. Bryant for the Lakers and I guess I'm assuming that means winning championships and history of the Laker. Legacies is and he's the player because he's the player today that can get that done. Yeah I mean it was. Kobi's VISI replaceable. It's not going to happen. It's not going to be another Kobe Bryant but I understand what he's saying as far as you know people are GonNa turn him because they always turned a hand Lebron James but wasn't there like a sort of Anti Lebron. Yeah coming to the to the Lakers fans. That didn't WANNA fans. Yeah they didn't want it the that I'm telling you a lot and it's so unfortunate that I mean is that this happened whenever so. Kobe and Lebron had like gotten to get the best relief David had when he passed him in the all time scoring list. Show up to the Games. Allow that relationship had turned into something that wasn't isn't acrimonious and turned into something really really good between the two. So I've gone. Koby reached out Lebron or one way or the other when Kobe was accepting to whatever happened and made it good between them to make Laker fans appreciate Lebron. Lebron's I mean basically the play but there were also. There wasn't any sort of personal beef between those two. I think what was to type A personalities ultimate competitor's and they both want to be considered the best but one that had been retired. I mean I don't know but there was a time there was a time there. The remember lebrons been playing for a long time the Lebron's woes at two thousand and three eighteen years old when he started. And that's what. Kobe won his first championship. And what two thousand. Yeah I mean there was a longtime both. Those guys had prime years so and that was a big discussion point. Kobe Lebron and then of course Lebron being younger than he ultimately took the the torch. But how do you feel about Lebron Ron statement about how he wants to take. Listen when Lebron James and I mean it's it's I don't take it any sort of negative way because I I don't. I don't don't believe saying that like now that Kobe gone on the man. I don't see it that way. What I think is that when you're Lebron you're out in Los Angeles? Your the superstar you are. This happens the people look to you. You know to for for joy they look to you to be be Alpha male and now he's in this season where the Lakers are great. And how special special would it be if they could deliver. It's not gonNA bring back but if they delivered a championship to those fans. I mean that would be one of the most emotional moments in sports. So that's what I think he means by right at Mike skip the next two. Let's go to Shaquille O'Neal here on TNT last night and he was very emotional as you can imagine first time. He's been in front of a camera. Since we got this news. He hears shack talking about the last time the to talk to one another dog from afar but appear on that we should say something home home. You're talking about talking was when we were here. It is fifty got sixty domo spoke to him and that was watching watching that was as heartfelt as anything you'll ever GONNA see. Yes something you want to tell me. I don't know I'm trying to communicate with our without distracting. I didn't work. That's okay. That's pretty funny. My bet on that move ahead. Let's go move ahead one more going to play this Rick Fox one because there were those wrong wrong reports on Sunday that he was part of this and in the helicopter with Kobe Here is talking about how his friend King Rice thought he was part of it. He walked off third quarter in. Somebody's apparently told him that. I may have been on the helicopter and she. He started calling some kings number repeatedly going and going ongoing and think he's worried about me. I said I'M GONNA talk to my best friend. I mean I can't even no you can't it's this you can't I know we're going to be talking about it for a a few more days and there will be a memorial service but basically you know the the fire officials in the sheriff out there in in La Calabasas were implying that they were people found out about their loved ones death via TMZ and which is really unfortunate. But that's unfortunately the light world world we live in we live in and so there's that and then there's other reports about guys who are alive and then the the damage that that does they're being reported at passed away and their family member this and there was also that mistaken for it that he was on the helicopter with four daughters one of which was born in June man. This is one of the worse stories in the history of sports. Interest is Just a couple of quickies here before we do moment of the day you have Saint John's lost at the garden to Villanova last last night seventy nine fifty nine rutgers gets to sixteen in five with a win over produce seventy to sixty three their fifteen at home seven and three in the conference Duke. Beat Pittsburgh seventy nine nine sixty seven and Florida state. The fifth ranked team in the country Lost Virginia. Sixty one to fifty six and also. I didn't mention it all morning. Antonio Brown was freed free from house arrest yesterday. I don't know what that means for him but that was yesterday though I mean in terms of anything for him going forward at any appearances here. Radio Probably Alvi nine. He's probably beaten up a ups driver. All right moment of the day brought to you buy Resorts World Casino in Queens joined. Marc Malusis and Sean Landeta for a big game party this Sunday at five thirty. PM Am. Tickets are free at our W NEW YORK DOT com early on we had some discussion about The walk that Alan I had on our way to the Convention Center this morning and it was interesting to say the least. I'm shocked that you would walk in a strange place. Not only because Jerry was doing it so I would not have walked alone. You think Jerry would have protected. You had there been some fisticuffs. Here's what I thought it would have to take two men to to attack Jerry and I now instead of one man his his. We probably could take on well. Jerry could probably grapple them. While I was screaming for help he would. Yeah he would get away with it guys coming towards us. I'd have been like. What are we doing here Jerry? What's the move jobs thing being in the other direction? There's moment of the day to day and by the way for people that might have tuned in and then missed the update of the the dead man and that story is alive. So yes that was that was on news said.

"There's crispy and then there's crispy our new and improved Tyson crispy chicken strips crispy just got crispy fast narrowing go now. It's more like that. Where oh no oh no okay? She'll say all right crosses whatever whatever you're wicker get it all together because we avoided some scary Islam. Detail moment. You're right no he'll be fine. He'll eighty five. We had a nice discussion about it. Doesn't it doesn't mean it hurts. You barely can move new. It's a little swelling in their. We're here and there. But it's that Dole ache that really never it doesn't affect performance in any way we of course we're talking about Anthony Davis taking a spill. Last night he lands. It looked bad ad for about thirty seconds. A minute or two. You think mortar thirty say. Oh what's going on and then we kind of all right all right but it hurts. No aww multiple times when you skinny to that's all but I will have never really had the experience. Now when you know when you cat little in you hit that that that Horwood or you hidden at turf and stuff like that it hurt it like hey have you ever fail or something that water. uh-huh yeah that's what it hurts. It hurts and Anthony Davis gets knocked down and to your point in talking before we came on the air. You were out last night watching the game and the place got real quiet real fast when you see that guy lying on the floor. Yeah it was. It was almost like you had just gotten bad news like you know. The spaceship did make it or something like that. He he just went quiet. And weighty spectrum goes to commercial and we're still kind of waiting comes up commercial east on the ground then you start hearing. Oh because now it's like. Oh what does this really really mean as opposed to. Oh he just felt he's okay eh time you see the stretcher out there. You're like wait a second on this stretch. Hugh he was fine. He's going to be all right. He's going to be one of those things but it just goes to show is slow. I A little ultrasound. Little steam he'll be fine. He'll he'll it. It shouldn't affect before like you were talking about. It's one of those things that hurts like crazy. It takes a long time to heal. It doesn't heal. He'll fast because I've had this injury and it took years literally years before you don't think about it anymore. There's no blood flow to that that bone down there and it takes forever. The good news is is. It doesn't really affect your performance at all. You can still do. What you need to do is just hurts us in? You'll maybe a little stiff. You know little stiffen back area but for the most those part he'll be fine. There's no structural damage to it. I'm sure in in you you certainly when it went when it happened and it went down you all you can see. It's so crazy though. Because you see things flash you owe menace over I mean. I've been there as a player in saw teammates get hurt. And you're like well. Oh goes ahead with vinny testaverde towards the keys in week one. I'm like you know we're we were much like the Lakers. Pick to win it. All when I was in New York jets we were picked to go to the Super Bowl because we had just lost the AFC championship game the year before we were high flying. Everybody's back we've got all well. He's pro bowlers. The whole deal Vinnie snaps his Achilles and everything just flashes like it's over. I mean it's not apples to apples. But you're talking about the quarterback of the team. The guy that's GonNa be on. It might not be the quarterback. But he's he's he's he's virtually the quarterback so yeah once you realized is that he was okay once you realized that he was going to be. You know it's GonNa work out. I instantly went to that idea. You know what they need to find another guy and not because he's not gonna be okay but in the event that something happens and all of a sudden you've got all of this work that needs to get done you've got all these points that need to be scored shots that need to be blocked rebounds that need to be grabbed all of the guy. Here's Mattel you hearing. Oh find another one that does not another one of those but in the event that him or Lebron or somebody does need a week week rumour two or some of these things you need to need somebody that in the short term can pick up some of the slack. Well I agree with you on to proceed with that. My flash of thought though came with the news that happened earlier. Which is Anthony? datas turns down Max. Offer Danny goes and that episode happens. Personally I'm not scared. Don't make money but personally no but what does sorry not much change talk radio financial level too though you know so your mindset because you operating on a different level right now as you say right here not seeing you broke but you broke compared to that most activities not broke so he could take that gamble because he's made money plus plus you know the supermax and all that stuff so he's GonNa play it this way and he's the plate we'll get into him turning down the essential. What does that mean? How does that play out for now? Here's Frank Vogel talking about. Anthony Davis Mrs Injury in this diagnosis. A tailbone and You know he's going to go through additional testing tonight and we'll have an update for you tomorrow. additional testing later tonight. He did not go to the hospital. You Frank what's going through your mind when you're out there looking at me on the ground like that fingers crossed hope for the best pray for the best and You know hope. Hopefully he gets up and it's not too bad All your guys. You've never seen anyone any of you. Guys suffer anything serious so you know we just hope and pray for the best right now. Look the Lakers or thirty seven. They've got the best record in the western conference. They've got a nice comfortable lead in the western conference when it comes to having that top seed but just in that moment you realize tenuous all the stuff is that it is a weird injury. It is bobby portis having a bad night and decided that he wants to take somebody's he's head off. There's a whole bunch of things that in a moment you can go from being the team that everybody's trying to be to a team that's just right back in the middle of the pack with everybody else. And one of the greatest his aspects of all time greater icons hall of famers etc is their ability to avoid bad luck. Yes like we've forget about VAT part of it. How bad luck has snatched away? What could have been breeding careers and good luck? Stain healthy has helped establish great careers. That part of it you you have no control over that part of it in comes from something. That's not something you can control so as much as you'd like to think hard work and I'm better than everyone else was the only reason sometimes it's just a matter which team you land during the draft. Do it matters. It's everything. Yeah it matters all the time tag near where where you you know. You're lucky you get drafted all those things. I'll tell my nephew all the time that he you know. He was not very happy. That eating the first round I was like dude. You landed in the perfect body. You crazy like these aren't even being the league. That went before you right wing by the time you get your new deal. They going to be on a street. St Somewhere and look what happens is considered you know the best receiver in the League right now. It's all about timing. Everything is timing and a little bit of luck a lot of luck and not just luck with health but luck with being with the right coach having the right system in your case key having the right quarterback having all of these different allowed allowed wrong the wrong words that you've got all these things that come into the you have no control of you have no control over who they're going to draft a quarterback or who who the head coach is going to be and let you know maybe if you're Lebron James. Kobe Bryant you can have a little input on who they're going to hire as the head coach but you gotta get to a point where you've already got enough equity involved in these things. Oh you do have yet to you have to have a little bit of equity You know when when we brought in Brad Johnson from Washington Redskins I sat down with coach. Don Jian Enrich McCain in you know we had our is set on a couple of guys but at the end of the day we decided to Brad Johnson was a guy and ultimately we want a super bowl together. But you you want you are in the League and you've done some stuff to head coach of lean on you. You know speaking. Obviously Anthony Davis in his injuries. The thing that we were going to leadoff with and the thing that was Maho my goodness what's going on but Casey P.. Nearly got decapitated last night. Bobby Portis got ojected for a flagrant foul. I mean they know that was not going for the girl or something dog that was about his girl. I hi gene cocoa cocoa. Why did he try to take his head off like that? That was because it was early in the game the game wasn't it wasn't wasn't a particularly chippy. Game at that point it was. Just he's going up Casey piece going up to put the ball in the basket and all of a sudden he gets clubbed upside the head. I mean I don't know as I said it to me. It looked kind of personal. Like I don't know if you say somewhere in the court or something early happening the game that bobby didn't like but certainly like he went head hunting. He was very successful. He Ain't don't find nobody. I'll do them but play. Bobby Portis will fight you go as Nikola merited his face and that was his teammate. What yeah that That did not mention Anthony Davis earlier in the day. Turn down an offer. A contract extension offer from the Lakers. What exactly does that mean for him? Him What exactly does that mean for the Lakers. That's next rebound bobby. Portis to Lakers to it. And then the White Howard blocked it fourth block of the Game Lebron all the way to the other end lay it up and Anna Fowler. What a sequence by the Lakers to white our the block Lebron took it put on the after burners scored and we'll have a chance for a three point own fossil? All right.

Don't want it to whip them now because they you got the Lakers light. Sometimes by the way named about idea a little bit sauce on the side you can dip them in and out a wing professional. It's not my first time. I certainly won't be the last. No no no. That's not going to have so. Anthony Davis yesterday was offered a contract extension. From from the Lakers. Yesterday was the first day that the Lakers under league rules could offer that extension. They offered him a four year. One hundred and forty-six million dollar contract research the money And he said thank you but no. I'm going to become an unrestricted free agent this summer And of course you could bet could feel like. Hey Hey hey what's going on. Here's Dave McMenamin explaining exactly why he turned down the extension f the Davison his representative rich Paul of Clutch Sports. They had to do what they did was to to say. Thank you for your interest but right now we don't want that sum of money because down the line there's more money feasibly waiting for us. He could sign a five year deal worth more within two hundred million dollars this summer. Even if he signed a four year deal elsewhere. It'd be worth around one hundred and fifty million dollars. The question is whether the up for signing a five-year Adila. Perhaps he signs something online Lebron's done recently to plus one deal that way. He can opt out when the ten year veteran and then be eligible for the supermax supermax which is even more money so in other words if he waits until the summer he can get another fifty six million dollar which makes a whole lot of Senate. You don't want to wait sixty you take a look if if the if it is the difference between one hundred and forty six today Or wait six months and I'll give you two hundred and two and like you said at a minute ago key. I'm not broke away. Yeah I'll wait and get my fiancee. We're going to be able to eat between right. My bills paid. It is yes I hear you but you gotta think though when he initially hits the ground and initially reaches back. But that's you gotta not take at worst. It's him and ME A. It's not the player. It's not the the agent. No nobody is nobody. That is Connected why no. I'm telling as as as much much as you've seen what happened to Boogie. No Memorial Move Bam listened last tour. Never never him black holes the brinks truck line. They're GonNa br knows what he was never go. It wasn't par. He's all poor. We Kevin Durant Yovany. Random key lease is up. How much you want to pay near fifty million is set for you? Yeah so very quick. This this this is me being the Very conservative very cautious guy. Can you ensure the gap between now and then in other words could you. Could you buy insurance. You're be terribly expensive for six months. which is saying I'd like to make sure just just in can injure my tailbone somebody out there selling policy? Yeah absolutely. I'd be shopping for that. I'd have done by the time they load me at the guys. Go to the combines and all that sort of stuff in the off season when he leave college to get ready for the pros they get insurance policies while working out and stuff anything happen happen to of course he I swear he was minding the ground I was like he's probably might give a cell phone phone call the he's still joking. You know what's funny because everybody is not in that position. Feels that way right. Everybody's not a position feels like me. She just went on to You know it's so since like the guy with the lottery ticket right. Yeah he's like man. You should cashed any now. Why you go wait right in any loses whether the difference like for instance we were talking about two of the other day? It's like go to isn't good. You know what I mean. He doesn't have anthony. Davis has been in the League for a long time and money. He's okay if if the very worst case scenario happen he's fine. He's fine with two. Two guys in college are not online. They're not so that's different. And I know that we do what we do. And everybody talks about this. That and the next thing in what could it mean. And what's the hidden meaning here well. Here's Wilkin the Lakers traded away the future for Anthony Davis. They traded away everything pair. Lebron James and Anthony Davis and there are also reports they're considering now trading away Kyle Kuzma to continue to make this current project work all cylinders hitting every string on the guitar tuned. It is working there number one seed in the West right now. They look great. But if Anthony Davis doesn't resign with the Lakers how much does it all fall apart. If you're Los Angeles Laker Fan. That's GonNa make you feel a little insecure. That's gotTa make you a little bit nervous. It would make me nervous with one exception. I just don't understand where there's a better scenario Dario for Anthony Davis to go play. There was another team that was really good. That was a good fit that a place that he had a connection to and I know that the Bulls are the team team. That always come up because he's a Chicago Guy I get the Bulls are not a good team right. The Bulls are not in a position that the Lakers are Lebron. James doesn't play for the Chicago Bulls he plays for. The Los Angeles Lakers if that weren't the case if there was another team that was you know. Eighty five ninety percent. Attractive is the Lakers. But had a kicker like hey. That's that's where I'm from then I'd be worried about it. I'm not worried about it you you you do understand. It's not going to happen. He's going to be like of course he is. It's good to have conversation precision on the radio for our listeners. Drive we got shows the duties that yeah. It's great will cain. It's wonderful. People want to listen to you. I get it but it's not gonNA happen. Let's not even even less not even waste our time talking about the woody of because it's not going to happen. We do have some recent examples of what wasn't supposed to the happened. And then what. Kevin Durant wasn't supposed to happen. All George supposed to happen Cairo one or a Korea Kawhi. He will morning where I wasn't supposed to have never seen anyone goalie. Toronto the Toronto but the conventional wisdom and all these places this is whether it was Oklahoma City whether it was golden state whether it was a Paul George in o'casey after he'd signed that you think that your set up in one spot and all of a sudden it's different but it does happen we have does happen but you gotta look at it from the entire standpoint. That point of you're dealing with rich Paul in Clutch who Arkestra trade. Who is in bad not only with his players but also the Lakers ingenious rob Pelinka? This is not. It's not a coincidence that the key winds up la. I completely didn't move all everything they hold shop from the Mid West. Everything from Maverick to re- TO RICH THEY'RE HERE IN LA. It's not. It's not a coincidence that he's hooked up. UTA WHO's here in La would exports say. It just doesn't happen like I agree with all of that. Here's the one one one hundredth of one percent that I will throw out there. Okay this is it and again i. He's going to be here. I'd really like to hear him say I don't have any idea. I don't want to go anywhere else. Says where I WANNA be. I'd just like to hear him say because the point is he's not negotiating. He's going to get the Max Right. It's not like the Lakers. Hey you know what he says is GonNa be here forever we can. We could save three million million dollar. He's he's GonNa get every penny of the Max and he knows exactly to the penny exactly what that offers going to be and he can sit. Look I came here. I said I wanted out of New Orleans to come to Los Angeles because I wanna be a Laker. This is where I WANNA be. This is where I'm going to stay. I can't see a scenario where I'm going anywhere or else I would like to hear that. That is the one one hundred one percent that hasn't happened. That makes me think okay. I still have confidence. But I'd like like to hear from that guy. I want here for me. No more I hear what you're saying. We've heard stuff and Paul George to the past directly from Paul George and then he's still did whatever he did. So doesn't really mean much Paul George Anthony. Davis is going to be here almost for sure is Kyle Kuzma here. A former Laker says we'll tell you who and what not GEICO presents left brain versus right brain after much deliberation. I've decided we should switch to GEICO. Sounds good to me. We could save hundreds of dollars on car insurance. which just guy in here we can reinvest those funds into in my business idea this again I gets him investors on board? Nobody is going to invest in dental floss. Made of Turkey jerky okay. Not with that attitude. Tin Geico fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more well. It's just a matter of time. I guess yes just a matter of time until this thing finally starts to get a little bit more momentum and in one guy says something in the next guy says something. What are you talking about? I'm talking about go back to when Dan we were all enjoying the holidays. And we're all at home and raw having a nice time with friends and family and doing all that kind of stuff. And then Kyle Kuzma trainer uh-huh tweets out something about Lebron James Not doing work during the offseason which the key. I guess you'd have to work pretty hard. I guess there there are some reasons out there that you could be critical. Lebron James not working hardest not up on. I didn't think it was a good tweet. So yeah that's just that's just a really really bad idea and then Kyle Kuzma who works with this Guy Kinda cosigns it. I mean I mean we. Yeah his his fall. We're assuming he cosign missed a worse because I do like you. I've been in this business writing and journalism for a long time. I know when I started. Yeah exactly You don't follow work with tweet. Call it a spate of space you might as well sit zip facts. You could save a lot of things one hundred nobody. She said a lot of stuff. You should have said this guy's an idiot. I was fired him. The second he said sent him in that tweet that's not what he did. That's the that's the part of it that raised eyebrow on I'd give him the benefit of the doubt for Saint Carlos Betas pay because we really don't know what he was doing specifically but once he got wind. How being interpreted not sending out to your point travis a tweet saying fired or tweet San not not with that or whatever you want highly want to distance yourself as soon as you became a knowledgeable how it's being interpreted you needed to publicly correct so you think yeah? So you'd be when his trainer said whatever he said about Lebron and he followed up with a spate of speed. You don't think ahead anything at all. I'm saying it is easy to. Let's see the connection but we don't know one hundred hundred referring one hundred stuff but let's not be now now you acting like coups. Those the real slow. Those are nice this you know what it was. I mean what I seek. It is one hundred percent. I know what I think it is based upon the timing. The confirmation for me though came from the lack of public criticism to the trainers tweet. Okay God and Brian Shaw former Laker player. In of course Lakers assistant coach under Luke Walton. Who Coached Kyle Kuzma? He says its exactly what we all think. But I'll tell any of the other young Lakers that are out there. Don't make the mistake. That Kyle Kuzma team did and have your trainer say anything. Gm Lebron James or you know. I know rich Paul was trying to sign Kyle Kuzma when he left his agent last year. He didn't sign we rich ball. So when you don't sign with rich Paul and your trainer comes out and says that I I was giving it to Lebron. You're going to be out of the Dallas. They no question okay. That's that is that's wising is it can be given the kiss of death no question he's GonNa be out of the. Brian Shaw knows how that building. We're all those things saw been in the fire rages. Lebron jokes. Think about Lebron. James isn't the only player in the history of the NBA. That will do you wrong when you start talking Craig Craig. Of course not think about why Thomas Wedding on the Olympic team might not want you go. Okay stay home. Yeah you not even him and me he is. I'll go ahead. John Stockton divert deserve the spot over Isaiah. And you know why are you changing your voice. John Stockton deserve to all time assist leader player last one heels as soon as Adema so him he dropped forty four in his head are never forget that as soon as jobs that are name was brought up the first game he saw John Stockton told him up. But when you meet scoring we need somebody to get the ball obscene it on my team in the NFL when a guy is guy in you say something you do awesome man. I ain't gonNA be able to do it. Can I mean I've been in the position myself before. I know how they go where we had. Les Steckel was office coordinator. Here's like wait a minute. Less Ito meet. I'll lay trade me from the from the jets to the books and they give me you know contract the whole deal. I go into something like come less like you gotta get. He told me jump on grenade life for the team. Why I say hey cool? So we're about I'M GONNA be here. I'll talk to you tell you not. At the seasons we gotta find somebody else you know jumped out of me to this whole thing and I'm GonNa GonNa for the team. Okay let me know about Kyle Kuzma little bit it. Just it's one of those things that kind of fills in the picture picture a little bit more it it. It puts more details into the picture that we're still you know when the guy gets drafted a little bit when he plays that first easy in a little bit more seconds and then you just start to develop a picture and this is another one of these details to the picture that Mexico is he really paying attention to what's going on around there. Is he real understand. Who's WHO's the guy that's calling the shots that I get it? You're popular the fans like. Yeah but he goes. ooh I I get the. That's Lebron James over there. What don't you understand Taylor? I'm you're not that I'm the new dude in town and you cool which was hot yesterday. You know you use AH I did. This is just giving trying to take you into the minds of the young athlete that the holiday think and not even process everything. Yeah you can get on the list. I can get on the list to stay. That's because Lou uncle Johnny in Homeboy Tony Tony. In the trainer. They sitting around in the room in the barbershop talking about LBJ. Do you read the trainer you you did this part. You don't wrap your head around. The trainer doesn't get to talk about my business. The part of the trainer talk about business business partner if they do. We're like Taiwan's because you allow him to. Tiger Woods is not a great guy not a great guy but what tiger was brilliant at was. Hey listen if you're going to work for me if you talk you're done if you talk you're done. And he's gone through caddies. He's gone through swing coaches. He's gone to if you want to work with me by the way I'm the greatest player. Ever if you want to be a part of this you're going to make a ton of money you're GONNA be into this that and the next thing but if you talk about me me we're done tiger. Why are we going and some people have got it and some people have not? You've got to understand that if your teammates Lebron James you don't say okay and do and load the gun for people to do. What are you doing? It seem as what if your teammates. You know what I'm saying like you. Just don't do that to someone whose the family we've been trying to go through a battle with doesn't matter I'm young and I'm hot and I got tattoos and my clothes shoes. Do the espy's in Denim Yoga pants out of going on there are eight teams left the NFL keys going to rank them keys. Great next that's right Travis. Were finally here. You know. We've done the gear long Keyshawn was the first. I'll give him credit to put the Ravens number one before a lot of the other powering has I've seen around the country. I do monitor those type of things. well country one. Yeah the whole country even Hawaii. Um One team. That won't be in there. That was high are the saints. But I'll let keyshawn do the talking. We've got eighteen left key. Give me your great here is there. He's out so we got the great eight is what we are calling eight teams in the playoffs key. Let's do it greater well started number eight and I'm GONNA go with Philadelphia Eagles. I think when you look at the Philadelphia Eagles there in Tennessee. Titans or sitting tight. It's a team that makes you kind wanNA think that they can make some noise it. But they're going to get ready to face an opponent. That's really really tough. Yeah but I like Rabl label. I like the defense if they can run the football. When is the Henry Henry what he did you sit there and you go okay? They got opportunity to chance I would think yes if they were playing Houston. I'd say absolutely if they're playing the chiefs I'd say absolutely they have a chance. It's just that they're playing Baltimore. I don't think they've got much of a chance at all. No I I don't especially Lamar. Jackson doesn't need the ball. Long to get a touchdown. Yeah so you eat a ball clock you want. If he gets two minutes he made maybe ten seconds and have a touchdown. There is something to be said though I think for the whole idea of if you the the best way to prevent more from going off is to not let him play is to keep him on. The sidelines is to control the ball. If and I get you it may only take them a minute to score four but if I only get to touch the ball instead of having twelve drives I have seven the pressure that comes along with. Okay I got a cash this and that can change him stuff it can and they do a quick fast and her exam. You'll have a couple a couple of hours a day. Games go fly by Turner football at number seven Houston Texans. I think you know this. This is a team with a quarterback that is dynamic in magical. He's somewhat of a mirror. Image of Patrick Mahomes a little bit of. You've Lamar Jackson. Some Little Russell Wilson Him. He's Kinda got all of those things in his repertoire. But at the same time they're not ready to take the the next step. I believe I went this. Well I just don't what's missing. I think it's I think it's just the they're young in terms of the makeup of how they've been in the playoffs the Times that they've got near they've been exiting early. They don't have a Seattle type mentality they don't we'll have that. I've been there before I know what to do. New England tight mentality. They just don't have it. It'll come but I think they are a little bit early for where they are right. Now do you not think that coming back from sixteen down in the playoffs in the second half sped up the process. No I I don't I don't think so. I don't know they very well could go on the road because the quarterback is magical. I was just GonNa say go on the road but it's going to be tough and they've got all world receiver seaver that QB and like him or not. The heart and soul of the defense is Captain America. Doctor Mr Haider's close the relative inconsistent teams. They will lay an egg in a second. That's why I agree with them being that low. Because I just don't think you can go into run and every third game thank you to go into a place. That's difficult to win in Kansas City number. Six Number Sixteen sixteen for me to the Green Bay packers toothy. And what are they real. Two seat or the uh-huh they figured out how to win some games in the this happened if fell into place form. You know it's almost like math. Says what you just said is exactly right. The analytic say that what their performance was a nine wind performance. They won thirteen games. Okay so that means that. They've caught some breaks along the way they've won some games that maybe they weren't supposed to accord and then just the raw math is never going to tell you exactly what it is. But there's a big difference between like I've seen Aaron Rodgers gers games and throw for less than two hundred yards. But what you can't give Mandolin is is that the last forty or fifty cain right at the end and that's how they wanted to gain in and that's is tough to do though. That's a tough way to win. Is Everything you're sitting on the edge of your seat in all of a sudden you in so next one. Five Five San Francisco no forty nine. Wow that's already in until they prove me wrong. Not Not trolling you. But haven't they proved you hung all season. There are thirteen and three. Oh they're the number one see. Here's everybody they beat up on Arizona. They beat up on. The Rams. BOHEME is not a bad team they just the rams are overhauling staff. Brad Rams are not a bad team. Okay well I think they they are but I think at the end of the day when you look at the forty niners. Yeah they got a great record number one seed they could have been the fifty two if Seattle took care business. So you know what I'm saying. One versus if they'd Uffizi. Are we sitting here. How they if if was a fifth? We'd all be right. We've they did say that on the day of thirteen and they do against your beloved saints in So San Francisco Jimmy G. and all those guys got to do something to prove me wrong. Is it all jibbed. It'd be g thing. Does that actually coming back to that. He's going to ball Jimmy G. Plus what they do from a receiver standpoint now. Deebo Samuel play good as rookie. This year American Sanders had his moments and flashing. But I won't legit I kid Jit but I wanna see what they do against the stout defence. That's playing pretty good football all in Minnesota. I can't I can't believe that you have cousins. Who Just want his first playoff game ever his first big game ever basically ahead of Jimmie beat Seattle Seattle? What if I tied him? They beat New Orleans. They blew out the last. I checked it was called key. Great great number. Four Minnesota Vikings the Minnesota Vikings the Minnesota Vikings going the road to care business to go on the road again in San Francisco and this is one of those deals where every now and then you get a kirk cousins as you get a nick foles you get a guy you get a a Joe Flacco you get a house. hostetler Trent dilfer. You get guys that people don't appreciate at the quarterback spot then all of a sudden they strike how you like me now. Is that what he say. That same whatever. Do you like kirk cousins. More Jimmy I do. I do lie presence as I do like him more. Because I've I've seen him battle with people said No. I've watched him continue to battle especially this year when everybody was like. Oh Man beginning of the year Daily he was like man he all of a sudden he it just clicked for him. So I'm with Mike Mike Zimmer on that one number three Seattle Seattle seahawks and this is going to be a tough test all the way from Seattle to cold Green Bay Plan Lambeau. It's GonNa be tough but then little. Oh Dude at quarterback is just. I mean he's special. I'm not saying that. He's the best quarterback in the league. He might be. But there's there's Patrick mahomes there's Lamar there's other great. He's the awfully good. He is the one that gives me the most anxiety watching employees against mighty if had genuine flavor like genuinely now what is startling he would be the star League but because he's so corny is hard for certain fans or connect with. We're talking about Russell Wilson. Because he's so corny even sometimes his own locker room is like you can almost feel roles coming tomorrow. How would you dealt with Russky? They was fine with me. I mean when you've dealt with him but have a quarterback that was that corny. You alright that'd that'd be probably wouldn't last because the I don't want to call it fate but it's just like is different. It's weird number two. cassie see chasing four hundred million dollars. Patch mahomes at home in that environment would buy with Andy Andy Reid. WHO's been here? Who's done it in the playoffs? Multiple years he needs to get over the hump. He's a coach that that is. You know there's a lot of question marks. Can he win the Big One can he. Wouldn't you set up perfect. There is no new England. There is no Pittsburgh to worry about. There's none of that. You got a young quarterback on the dry. So let's let's let's get going Andy. Reid is widely thought to be one of the great coaches of his era. Andrey in Andy Reid is also the guy that tricks off more playoff games than anybody. We've seen here's a here's Bob stoops. Yeah and you do understand. I have no sense right. Something's wrong with clay. We plan to Philadelphia. Eagles goes. They opened up the link. We just shut them down the year before the vet Andy Reid pre-game you know. We'll warm enough. He standing at the fifty looking at us. You know I turn around walk. It gives you the choke side. Oh He's my guy though. He's my laugh he could just like choke this year and he just started laughing at number. One is obviously march. Actually Receiver of the Baltimore. Bill Polian man we go Lee bill alone he goes no no no no no he could have done right by Jesus. He's the one who left his name off that list. Michael Thomson Ali Michael Thompson. Of course father knows best first thing he said to me when asked to come on a couple of days he was like. Oh we talk about Bill Polian but is that was that a real we looked at Democrat Kerman and You know sometimes when you get a little older you just forget or you stuck in your ways no matter what anyone tells you. And I think the bill was stuck in his ways about the way that he viewed quarterbacks to what he liked what he saw. If you look at the history of quarterbacks that he's drafted they all are. Statues Statue's whether it's Kerry Collins. Where there's Jim Kelly whether it's Peyton manning that's like goes beyond that because he voted for Russell Wilson so Russell Wilson because he doesn't like Lamar and Russell Wilson Saturday choice choice but you take place only as a plate? Yes is that that's saw. He is not that he don't like Lamar striking for Laker. The Lakers finally listened to the smartest guys in the room. We'll tell you who that is next.

The third defensive starter lost for the year due to injury atom also reporting giants end Evan Ingram with a sprained. MC l. e. is considered week to week. Forty Niners cornerback Richard Sherman will be out to three weeks with a calf strain Sherman injured in Sunday's loss at Kansas City. He left in a walking boot after this game and at twelve fifty seven. What was the obvious you Jackson, the Browns, make it official. Baker Mayfield nameless starting quarterback for Cleveland. Number one, overall pick, we'll make the first career start in the black hole in Oakland. It is day. We're glad to have you with us. I'm Wendy Nick out of Schefter Ryan Clark, Tim Hasselbeck as we get ready to put week three in the books. We've got one more game to go tonight in Tampa. There certainly were more than our fair share of upsets and injuries over the weekend. But we start. With the news just over an hour ago, Baker Mayfield era is officially underway in Cleveland just days after Mayfield lit up. The jets rallied his team from fourteen nothing deficit for Cleveland's first win and six hundred thirty five days. Hugh Jackson did the only thing he could do and named Mayfield the starter. He went out there and some tough situations down fourteen in lateness in the second quarter and handled all of that extremely well and wouldn't play well. So he checked off every box for me that he was starting quarterback and that he earned it do performance and his work in. Here's his opportunity, you know, and he's gotta go, go make it happen. And I think he will and he had big grin on his face. Oh, absolutely. I won't deny that this is sooner than what I thought it would happen because I thought we would play much better even though I had one game. That's just the building block. I I didn't. I didn't come here just to win one game, and I didn't come here just to start the next. We're building the franchise here and we're turning around. It's about cultures. Thirty six nine hundred ninety nine it's twenty eighteen. Don't really care. What does not a career make, but it is over reaction to say that was just about the most obvious announcement we can afford on Monday. What may be an overreaction is to say, this Baker Mayfield will lead the Browns to the playoffs, Tim Hasselbeck overreaction not an overreaction so reaction. I'm assuming we're talking about the twentieth eighteen season. That's correct. Talking about twenty eighteen. So I'll talk about twenty eight teams. Well, I think he is going to bring some excitement to that franchise. There is no question about it, and I think that we will see improved quarterback play from that position for that franchise. But I do not believe that they are ready to be a playoff contending team in the division that they're in. Even with the slow start Pittsburgh's habit. I think it's an overreaction is as well, but I'm excited. I was excited when they put him in the game. I was excited when they drafted him. I was asked doing the draft process and I am no Tim Hasselbeck, but they asked me which quarterback I liked the most and it was Baker Mayfield. I thought he was accurate. I thought he played with poise also thought he brought some excitement to team, and we saw that when they put him in the game in the second quarter on Thursday night, this team got better other players started to play better starting to be more enthused about the game. And if you can do that, that's an added intangible that a quarterback can have this team has playmakers on outside call. Those hides running. The ball well, and they're playing good on defense. They're going to beat some people. They won't be a playoff team, but it's going to be a dramatic improvement over what they were last year. This team already went to the place won the Super Bowl last Thursday. When they season. They want a championship because it was that long since the browser won a game, and I think that this team is much better. You look at the draft class that the Browns assembled this year. They hit across the board with talent everywhere, not just Baker Mayfield, but Denzel wore looks like a Pro Bowl cornerback picks throughout the draft that are making an impact this season. And so this team I think is going to be much more improved than people think to say it's gonna play us a bit of an overreaction. But you know what, I'm curious to see whether Baker Mayfield can get them there and improve us all wrong and make it possible that Cleveland does have another playoff like celebration here in January what they have right now that they didn't have a few weeks ago hope. Absolutely. That's the biggest thing. That's the biggest thing. They got three deer Brown bear. Now that I was excited. Back to win a playoff game. By the way Vinny Testaverde the nineteen Ninety-four wild card game. A guy by the name of Bill check was Cleveland's head coach. We continue now with news on the other end of the spectrum, the San Francisco forty Niners fear the worst that Jimmy Garoppolo suffered a torn ACL late in the fourth quarter, nine contact injury. This was against the chiefs when he buckled up as he was cutting on a scramble. Here's Kyle Shanahan and chiefs linebacker Justin Houston on the injury to Garoppolo. We show up Wednesday, it's time to go. So it's part of the NFL season. That's what you have to do. We all feel for Jimmy, there's no doubt about it. You know, we dealt with this with running back two days before the season started to. So it's this is part of the NFL. We're not the first time this has happened to so all next go off. Oh. I think that was his. Appraise not hurting up to series, but as a quarterback, he should step out of balance. It's only hits, hits, win, the made a difference. You got the amount of. To be smart. Thinking about your team. Well, get down or get out that lead just this on overreaction Monday. Garoppolo should have gone out of bounds. Adam, I'll start with you. Is that an overreaction? No. First of all, he a sealed before he that amounts. So I think at that point time he's trying to, he doesn't know what's going on. So how can you say you should have gone out of bounds when the ACO pop now? I guess if he had not even taken an extra couple of yours, he could have gotten out of bounds. And then people might have looked at funny and look, I will four quarterbacks and players protecting themselves whenever they can. But you can't look at that because he tours AC on that plane. Say he should have gotten out of balance earlier. I don't think it's a, it's an overreaction. And I'm hoping that just in Houston thinks the hit Tories ACO hoping that. Yes, right? Yes. So I'm hoping that he just didn't know and thought that Nelson's hit is why Jimmy Garoppolo tourism CEO because here's what's happened. The NFL treats quarterbacks like they're no longer football players. So now just in Houston, feels like quarterbacks should play like they're no longer football players. Jimmy Garoppolo had a team that was down. He was trying to make a play and the ACL tears before we can know what he was trying to do. I don't necessarily think he shouldn't have gotten out of violence. I think he wanted to help his team win the game. It's why you pay him the money. It's why he's Jimmy g. and the guy that they had their their franchise quarterback. I have no issue with the plan. When you watch that video in particular, you can see that it happened before Louis it. Clearly, he just just buckles over action for me as well. Here's the deal. Let's say he ran out of bounce. It was a non contact. You don't know when the next time is where his knee was going to kind of give out in the way that it did and end up being an injury. And I believe that Justin Houston thought that had happened on the hit just because there's probably a lot of people that were playing in the game that thought that because they didn't have the benefit of seeing it in replay and things. Things that. Nature, but ultimately quarterbacks that are new to their franchise are trying to play football. Honestly, Ryan and kind of become a guy in the locker room that people feel like is laying it out on the line for the rest of his teammates. That's why when Josh Allen scrambles the way he does, and even somebody like Jimmy Garoppolo really hasn't accomplished anything as a player yet is trying to do that same thing to to basically earned the respect of his team-mates. Yeah. So there's so many times you'll see guys jump off the sideline, not for the big throws or the great quarterback reads is win. They fight for next year or just when they break a tackle, and that's something that endures you to your teammates, and it makes them feel like, okay, you're one of us this guys all in his right to that to that end, we'd be saying something entirely different. If he didn't hustle. He didn't. We'd be happy to have a different overreaction Monday, just the way it works. All right week, three, not complete just yet winless Pittsburgh Steelers on the road at Tampa. And we've seen the daily drama that just seems to continue as they stare. Down the Steelers that is what could be. And Owen three start if things don't break their way tonight against the bucks. So pay face Ryan. Fitzpatrick will make his third straight start to spell Jameis Winston who is suspended. Lisa Saulters is here with us as she always is. There's air down there. What? What is it fits magic? We have you heard what in the world is going on with Ryan Fitzpatrick. Hey, Wendy. Well, Ryan Fitzpatrick said when James Winston got suspended and he knew he was going to be the start starting quarterback for these first three games of the season, he decided then he was just going to let it fly. Fitzpatrick said everyone thought we were going to be terrible anyway. Dirk cutter was gonna lose his job. They were gonna start. Owen three playing without old crusty quarterback. So he said, one of I have to lose the key to the fits magic so far, explosive plays through the first two games of the season. Tampa had four touchdowns of more than fifty yards. Other team in the league had more than one tool. Those deep ball TD's connections to Sean Jackson who has already gone. Records to say that he thinks it's Patrick should remain the starter regardless of the fact that James Winston, we'll be back with the team tomorrow morning. Obviously it's not my decision Jackson said, but the way Fitzpatrick is playing the way guys are gravitating around him. We're taking our game to the next level hard to argue with that, Wendy. Well, it certainly as Lisa that is not the case for the Pittsburgh Steelers, they clearly are not in the best of places if he will and know they're trying to tune out all the noise, but how are they handling the current situation? They find themselves. Then it has been a noisy week for the sealers, but Mike Tomlin says, bring it on. He said, his team is about been about absorbing all of that negativity this week, the negativity that comes with not winning. But he also said that he's not concerned about reports that he's lost the locker room in our production meetings last night. Tomlin confirmed. Yes. He did speak privately with the Antonio Brown did discipline him for not showing up for meetings last Monday, following the loss to Kansas City. Ben Rothlisberger and defensive captain. Cameron Heyward boats said they spoke to Brown as well last week and that the conversations were very good. Hayward, said Brown, didn't apologize to the team that he didn't need to rob Berger said he just told Brown, look, we understand your frustrations about losing, but he just asked to start receiver to next time come to him. If he has an issue, they all seem to agree that the noise will die down tonight with a win, Wendy, Lisa, thank you. There's no question about that. A win cures, so many ills and quickly. Let's start with Levy on bell though, because it looks like an inevitable parting of the ways, I guess Adam or or at least they exploration of that where the question is when they're going to part ways, is it going to be after the season or is it going to be doing this season? Now, the Steelers for the first time are breaking their stance that they've had throughout camp where they weren't interested in listening to trade offers. They are now listening to other teams. They are now willing to trade levian built. The question becomes, is there a running back needy team with. Enough cap space that's willing to compensate the Steelers right now give up something advanced to make a run this year to get him out of Pittsburgh. Now, if you're the Pittsburgh Steelers your another team, you can't sign him to a long term extension that deadline is coming on, so he can't sign until after the season. So the trading team would beginning rent a player until it would have the first opportunity to resign him. Once the regular season ended. This would be a lot like the Toronto Raptors trading for quite Leonard another team, but with the capping, what it is three games and it's challenging. It's not impossible. It's challenging, but I think there's no debt that Levy on bell is leaving Pittsburgh whether that's in a week, a month or after this season, and let me ask you this. You don't need me to tell you that that defense is really the the core issue here. They're just they're just not playing. Well, having said that then, does the drama matter is that making a difference as well? Because the reality is the offensive scoring points. Well, I think with the drama does is make us look at it in a different way. We're not just examining what. What's happening on the football field because there's so much other stuff going on and you don't get that out of Pittsburgh. That's not the Pittsburgh Steeler organization that you're used to under the Rooney's. And so I think that's the bigger problem. Now, listen, when you go to Cleveland and we're finding out Cleveland, maybe a little bit better than we thought we go to Cleveland and tie, and then you run over by the Kansas City. Chiefs defense has been an issue since you get rid of coach, dick lebeau. Mike Tomlin is now put his imprint on that. You have Keith Butler as the defensive coordinator. You gotta find ways to stop people. We saw this happen against the Jacksonville, Jaguars individual round of the playoffs. Last year you score in the forties and you can't beat a team led by Blake Bortles yet. It's right. You can't beat a team led by Blake Bortles, and you score over forty points. They have to find a way to stop people. Joe Haden. We'll be back this week, and I think more so than the drama that's happened. We really haven't examined what the loss of Ryan shazier hasn't been emotionally and mentally for the Steelers, but the actual on field play. I agree. I, I think the noise and all of that is just the easy scapegoat, you know, in so many ways. The reality is there's some Xs and os at aren't going well. I mean, there's no question. I think that's part of it. And I think there's also, you know, you have players that aren't used to it being this way. Why Antonio Brown is is frustrated or part of the reason why. And so I think all of that comes together and it's hard when you're losing, it's easy to find problems if you're a player. Really? Yes. I mean, that's just plain and simple. It's easy to point the finger when you're losing football games. I on the other side, my goodness, and we've seen it before in in snippets. Right. What do you see from Ryan? Fitzpatrick and Willie continue tonight? I think the biggest thing is that he's comfortable and he's playing with a massive amount of competent he and he gets a great opportunity against the defense that struggling. So I think he sees things kind of through the same lens that dirt cutters, these things authencity which helps him. He's surrounded by a lot of talent. Arguably as much talent is he's ever been surrounded by. In his career, and I think that the pressure is just awesome. Career. What he's been through. The pressure has been off and I said it when he took the job. I, I think this is where he excels when people aren't expecting him to be. The guy is no different than when Gina Smith was supposed to be the starter and then had the broken John. So it was Ryan Fitzpatrick. Well, he didn't have to be that no one was expecting out of them, and I think that he's comfortable in that role rather than when he's expected to play, like drew Brees or somebody like that. Then I think it's a much different environment for him. Twelve o one tonight or this morning. However, you want to phrase it. Jameis Winston comes back Adam. What? What do you do? Well, this is simple. You just keep riding with the guy that's playing the way that Ryan Fitzpatrick has in the truth. The matter is, is that James Winston actually predicted this to the buccaneers the day before his suspension began when he was having his exit interviews with the team, and he was inside the office of the general manager, Jason light, and they were going over what he should be doing what he shouldn't be doing for the next few weeks and how this would all unfold and how workout. And during the course that conversation, Jason, I mentioned that there are no assurances that when you come back that you'll have the starting job, James, thank you for keeping it real. He understood the exact situation as he was leaving. Jason lights office. He poked his head back in and he said, you know, the fifties is gonna light it up, don't you? He knew this was coming for whatever reason. They watched them in camp. They saw the way he reacted. They sell the way performed, and they all believe that this was the type of performance that they're getting. Now, maybe this is a list for. Dr. Asian, Ryan Pickett. Jamie stays. James was the one. I believe what he told Lisa Saulters said there were no expectations the monkey off your back. So to speak, go out there and let it rip and we've seen what has happened so far. We'll have more on this game coming up a little later tonight. Press coverage. Now from our ESPN Vikings reporter, Courtney Cronin Dalvand cooked still taking his hamstring injury day to day. We'll see how it feels on Thursday. He does note the right now. He's feeling good, and there's a decent chance he will play against the Rams. Clay Matthews has now been flagged NFL high three times for roughing. Roughing the passer. He received that penalty week. One for a hit on bears, quarterback Mitch, Trubisky late in the fourth next week, Kurt cousins through relate pick that would have sealed the Packers when Matthews flagged because he lifted the quarterback and drove him to the ground. And then Sunday, Matthew splits and sacked, Alex Smith penalized. Again, the league backed up. The cruise ruling on the play. The Matthew spoke after the game about his frustration. Unfortunately, this lease in direction. I think a lot of people don't like, you know, against soft and hard about this liter is a fine that they let me down on guys like play the game mart. So obviously, when you're tackling a guy from the front, you're gonna land on him. You know, I, I don't. I understand the spirit of the rule. I said that you know weeks prior, but when you have hit like that's a football plane. You know, I even when I went up to Alex Smith game, ask them, you know. What do you think? You know, what can I do differently? Because that's a football player. I've never heard of anybody tacking somebody without any hands when he gives himself up. As soon as you hit them, you body weight's going to go on so disappointed. You know, I, you know, I try to change from last week and still get the flag. So. You know, I, it's unfortunate. I think it's a situation everybody can understand because by the rule the call is correct. So the the wall has has been enforced correctly, but here's overreaction. Matthews is right. The NFL is getting soft because when you look at that last hit Ryan, it's hard to imagine what else you could do. But anyway, overreaction or no, whoa, this is not an overreaction. Clay Matthews is one hundred percent correct, but it's on purpose. The league needs to protect these quarterbacks. The league needs guys like Aaron Rodgers in Alex Smith and Mitchell Trubisky to be healthy to be upright. These are the money guys. They put the people in the stands, it's sort of league is making a conscious effort to keep these guys on the field to keep these guys healthy and Klay met us. When you look at some of those hit the Mitchell Trubisky hit. That's a penalty. The hands high. Somewhat different Ryan, even the Alex Smith it, we've seen that cold before. So some of these things understand his frustration because it's three times in three weeks, but the league is going to protect these guys. The only thing I wish the league would tell them is how to do it. Correct. Tell me what he can do to not get a penalty. Tedy Bruschi grandia last week tackle the football, not quarterback now is very easy to say that it's another thing to actually do this to me is sort of like saying when you're in a car accident, make sure you duck. Get out of the, how do you know to get out of the way? He's just trying to run through the guy, but saying that I don't think the lease getting soft. I mean, this is still a violent sport and they're still a lot of hard. It's the rule is being enforced the way it should be as you said, and they're trying to clean it up. But I don't think the league's any softer, say it's an overreaction from me because I, I would agree with that sentiment and that it's not soft. Now, the difference is this like hits Ryan, you know, delivered when he was a player. Those are no longer legal, but hits that were legal when Ryan was playing safety. It wasn't the case for the generation before. I think what we know now is that like quarterback was a highly concussed position also was a position that drives interest in the game, and so we all understand why they're doing it. And I think we, we can understand that it it. It makes sense that the doing their officiating it this way and instituting rules this way. But I don't think it makes it soft when when you still see other plays, whether it's a a goal line play, whether it's a, you know, somebody fill in the hole on play. I, it's different. Now the passing game has changed. There's no question about it and in the safety position more than any other position in my opinion. But I don't think it's a soft game because still you still have to be tough to play this game. Right? And that's what and that's what's out. The other part of it is is is all relative, right? Is relatives who what things used to be when you talked to former players with some of those days that she was saying that what preceded us. They thought the game was getting soft the way that we played it and it's gonna continue to to continue to do that as long as health and safety remains in a when my dad played me NFL you could cut kickoff return. Kickoff return. You could get. So to say it's soft. Like I mean, it's like it's actually just a smarter way, just crazy soft or not. I think that's what I mean though, by its own purpose. It's intentions, impatient. It's not gonna change if they continue to stick with what they've said. So we're going to have to get used to it. A wedding is a beautiful thing. As long as it doesn't fall on a Saturday during college football season. Those Saturdays are reserved for the union of two rivals. A celebration of fans coming together to trash talk one another at Buffalo Wild Wings. We believe that a wedding planner needs to own a football calendar and our bars are full of beer drinking. When eating funds who agree with us, unless you're secretly trying to cut down your guest list, then kudos on the great strategy, Buffalo Wild Wings escaped to football, please drink responsibly.

Don Shula high school coach of the year award will be announced at the Pro Bowl in January -gratulations coach Crawford, listen, it's a good thing. Patrick Mahomes. You can see him right there because there is no doubt he stood out on Sunday, but he was not alone. It was a wild week. There are things happening in Wisconsin should have been Minnesota, but anyway, we'll get to that. How about this Cam chance back in Seattle, after revealing, he has spinal stenosis, he raises the number twelve flag and just a great moment and Seattle, we'll listen. This is a guy that put blood sweat and tears into this team. So it's awesome to see him honored enabled to do that. No question. Speaking of the bills who traveled to Minnesota and Wisconsin look at Allen, keeps the ball. With his Josh Allen looking like his alma mater Wyoming cowboy Joe. Dr. He's not worth another look. Hey, that's that's why jury, gee, we tried to do well if the troops has Cowboys on the road at Seahawks Dak Prescott dot drops back quoted by shoot. Thrill. Thomas who these practice I don't need meeting. I don't mean this 'cause I can make plays like this. Pay the man, Pete Carroll John Schneider. That's right. I mean, just ridiculous and this is what he did in high school. It's what he did in college, and they said he couldn't do it at this level. He still scrambles look cost the body just unbelievable absurd. The scrambles one thing right. Ahead and make the strove Richard sherman's got the opportunity to fall off and make the planet with the ball, just kiss there too quickly pay. How about this, though? He still owned pace. Skies is still an overreaction still fish story at the day. Panthers FAA badeah came the first player from international the NFL's international pathway program to make a fifty three man roster wish we had more time to talk about. Look that up. It's just a great story and really a great program back the Cowboys in Seahawks, Brandon Marshall here. Keep your eye makes the cat. Well, what if what a catch and what a good time to. I'm not sure what you call. Push ups for all the balls he dropped early on in today. Hi, giant Texans Opie. Jay. Mike him to be an among our Sunday standouts. Number thirteen.

Mid way they are right right here is where Reggie Nelson just has to take the penalty capital. The other guy either that. How would you do. Mike McCarthy, steamed. I believe this was out over the clay Matthews incident. We had to thought he was gonna, get roofing. The way he do Pennsylvania. It means alert. I know he's from get fired. He was fired up and I, you know, I was hoping it was breeding. Okay, school, scary there. But you know. The Knicks I hear. Frustration. We've got a Monday standout which is actually a feel good story, and we don't do these enough because there are good things happening around the NFL. I promise the Panthers delivered an the entire team today, packed up boxes at the second harvest, food Bank in Charlotte, North Carolina. This is of course to send to those impacted in the Carolinas by hurricane Florence of job? Well, done Carolina Panthers. And if a lab continues now would breaking news regarding forty Niners quarterback, Jimmy Garoppolo Welwyn do the Murrah just came back and it showed that Jimmy Garoppolo does in fact have a torn ACL. Now in the forty Niners examined his knee after he went down on this plane, Kansas City yesterday they believed in fear that it was a tornado, but they want to send him today for the Mirai because you never know what it shows. You never know if there's a difference, a mistake, but unfortunately for the forty Niners for Jimmy Garoppolo it just came back and confirmed exactly what they feared. He is now lost for the season, which means which means that CJ Beathard becomes the new starting quarterback in San Francisco. They had only two quarterbacks on their Ostra, so they need to go out and get another quarterback not to take over the starting job because they're not going to get anybody in all probability. It's going to be any more productive that knows that offense any better than CJ better. But they need somebody now to back up and c. j. bet there which is another challenge. So you need a new number two quarterback, which they'll have to go get at this point in time. But this is a devastating blow. For a team that's been snake bit all season long seemingly with injuries. Jerick McKinnon goes down on the last Saturday before the regular season molest play practice, untouched tears. His ACL when the offense is going to be built around him. And now you've got the word on the MRI. Jimmy Garoppolo officially torn ACL Jimmy Garoppolo will miss the remainder of the season. And what was immediately concerning of course, is that it was a non contact injury. You just sort of saw it buckle under and typically that doesn't spell good things. That was the case here Ryan. Yeah, absolutely was. And if you're the San Francisco forty Niners if you're John Lynch, if you're a couch Anna him, you weren't expecting this team to be the playoff team. This team in two thousand eighteen to contend for the Super Bowl, but you were expecting growth. You expect it to grow as offense with Jerry McKenna you were expected Jimmy Garoppolo to have more starts. So what's concerning for me is now you go into next season at Jimmy Garoppolo has what ten starts now. So you're still you're still back at square one with this offense. With this personnel, and it's like the more you try to continue to to grow in the more you try to progress, you're getting set back by injuries, and that's a very difficult place to be as head coach and also has a play call is a good point terms of his experience. I actually got the sense that the forty Niners as an organization with the way last year ended felt like they were really than they may be did when they, you know, when this new regime took that job over, which is why you saw the jerk McKinnon time, which is, I think, why you saw Richard Sherman and you know, with the forty Niners, I think all of a sudden it was like, well, wait a minute with Jimmy Garoppolo as our quarterback. We may not be as far off as as we originally thought. Well, now you've kind of you now in a situation where you know, I guess the this, the silver lining, I guess if there is one is that it happened early enough in the season that you would expect them to be held right enough for next year, but but this is it's devastating, I think the expectations and I think the other thing it does the Rams. To me look like the best team in the NFC period and so that division now. So he'll walk through that right. Listen to this forty Niners team is built for the next few years. They've got a lot of cap space, ally, young players, and a lot of players under contract through the twenty twenty. So this is set back this year. I think that the Rams look almost unbeatable in that particular division anyway, so it doesn't make it much better. But this team I think will be back next year and the year after and have a chance to compete at that point time. It doesn't take the sting away from losing a guy that you paid in the off season. A guy that this season was built around guy that had basically infused that franchise with hope for the coming season two and c. j. bet that w was one in four and distorts last year for San Francisco, and then Garoppolo came on, and it was like life was breathed into the franchise, and now the life has been sucked out of the franchise and it'll be CJ bet there once again at the quarterback position so quickly. I mean, it was so much expectation. There's so many expectations given the way he started his historic career, if you will. Well, we'll talk now about Jimmy Garoppolo is. Former team, and that would be the New England, Patriots. Listen, they have back to back losses for the first time in recent memory. And here is what will say on this overreaction Monday, the patriots are in danger of missing the playoffs reminder that this team started tuned to last year right now. They are one and two Adam Schefter overreaction or no, it's an overreaction. Look, how many times have we overreact the patriots in the past starting slow, losing a game. Looking back now, I will say there's a difference here. This team. It's run. Defense has looked susceptible. It's lacking playmakers on the offensive and defensive side of the football. The team is look slow. So it looks like there are some real problems that this team has to correct going forward. But so many times we of overreacted to this team, whether it was losing in buffalo thirty one, nothing in the season opener, whether it was losing against the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday night football. Now, in this particular case back to back double digit losses on the road. At Jacksonville at Detroit, and they look like I said, like they need playmakers in both sides, the football, but it's still the patriots. You still think they'll bounce back, but it's starting to get a little early here, refer them. Well, listen, this is an overreaction. And I don't know if I think they'll bounce back, but they most certainly have earned the right for me to be patient in judging whether or not that they can bounce back. There's a big game this week. The Miami Dolphins are three note, and Miami Dolphins are still to me an unproven team. They're gonna come in and try to prove something against New England, Patriots. They're going to try to say it's a changing of the guard in AFC in that division. So the New England Patriots can come back, watch the film attempt to get better and win this game and had themselves squarely in the race to win the division. The scary part for me is they're finding different ways to lose. A lot of times we get pinpoint. One reason why the the New England Patriots aren't playing well last year early on in the season. It was the defense you giving up crazy ours to show Watson, Kansas City comes in big play at the big play, and they write it that. Ship along with Matt, Patricia and Bill Belichick this year, the offense is not able to create plays defensively. You're giving up yards in both the run in the past. So they're going to have the final way to bring all this together. And maybe when you get choked back healthy and you can get Julian element. And now if Josh Gordon can be put into the lineup and actually be available on the field, this team could be something, but they're going to have to work this year in a different way than I believe the other years to me, it's an overreaction. When you said they were two and to last year to end up Super Bowl right now. They're going to get join element back who knows what Josh Gordon can do in terms of helping them. I think you look at Detroit's plan last night. It was to double gronk, and it was have somebody else winning get open and quite honestly didn't happen. So I think you know, that was a big part of, you know why it worked out that way. Probably somewhat surprising that other people haven't done what Matt Patricia did last night to that New England offense with Ataman out. But I think there's, I think New England has Ryan said his has earned a right for us all to be patient on them, getting it figured out. Questionnaire been many, many experts to get burned by gets patriots. I will tell you this New England's been outscored by twenty points their worst point differential through three games since one thousand nine hundred ninety five. So take that for what it for, what it's worth. Monday night football headed your way tonight from Tampa, Big Ben and Tonio Brown with the Steelers face Ryan Fitzpatrick and the two zero Buchan ears, eight fifteen eastern five fifteen Pacific on ESPN. Our coverage begins with Monday night countdown at six for a preview though. Here's Joe Tessa tour from the booth. Getting set for Monday night football that includes the two most productive passing teams in the NFL through two weeks, Tampa number one in passing yards. Pittsburgh number two. For the bucks. It's been the big plays downfield Evans and Jackson combining for five touchdown receptions why? So much success downfield for them. Well, the play action, an accurate throwing by Ryan Fitzpatrick only that these guys are twenty six, twenty eight, and he's don't want it to Jackson and Evanston pretty high percentage. So good things are happening. They're staying ahead of the chains, but the big strike down the field has been a game changer for this office. I think it's connection between Fitzpatrick in Jackson. He has six touchdown debt, Jackson, Five of them have come from Ryan Fitzpatrick. So that connection they've made. I've only off season during training camp has carried over to the regular any said he figured something out with he said, I throw it early now, trust that he's going to run and get it. Yeah. When he's been a veteran guy, he's hurt his entire career. Your arms, not strong enough is not big enough, and we're gonna throw the most explosive player in NFL history, potentially Sean Jackson on your team. Him and he understands he's got throw it soon and let the shine go underneath it. And that's the connection that had been having just part of our visit with Ryan Fitzpatrick my big takeaway visiting with him. He's having fun. He's enjoying the right. He's had these moments before in his career where has been the talk of the town you really absorbing while he realizes he's on his last leg. If he spent eighteen holes, he's on hold seventeen right now, and he wants to take it all in. Enjoy your veteran player. You don't know when to end is coming, but when it does want to savor all the moments in between the other set, of course, has big venue spent time with Mike Smith defensive coordinator for Tampa. He said, the most explosive play in football is actually the quarterback scramble. He doesn't festival. He really does it better than anybody else in the biggest reason why is because he's so big, you can keep his is up and sitting entire fill. A lot of these guys that do that at quarterback position after get outside the pocket. Not been. He's taught the bringing down and he's got an arsenal weapons on the outside as disposal, young defensive backfield for Tampa. They do get Grimes back though. Yeah, grounds come back. He's gonna to do when it's on your brow. On not to expect the Pittsburgh Steeler to spread it out, make this young secondary and twenty Brown guard you Smith Schuster is they can do that. Then they deserve to win. They will got our Monday night football schedule. Did you ever think to bucks here we go. We got out the two zero bucks against the old one. In one Steelers, our coverage will begin at eight eastern. Not only that Joe test the bucks have already defeated a pair of Super Bowl winning quarterback. They took down through breeze week one, Nick foles week two. And now they get Big Ben Rothlisberger under the lights at Raymond James, according to our friends at Elias, no team in the Super Bowl era has defeated a Super Bowl winning quarterback in each of the first three games this season undefeated as well. At least when it comes to the red carpet, Ryan Clark, different kind of stroll Keach week when the Knicks. You know what we do now, we get to the game. We go and slow MO, right? We feel movies, no. Oh, you must some of the some of the top Sunday. This guys understand that we need to step it up a little bit that I need a little more. Win the Knicks. About movie phase. We need Nick's. 'cause I've got two guys right here that moved very fast, so even call them cheetahs. So this is two different approaches, right? So this is tyreek hill. Is this. Both yesterday and they call them cheated. Let me tell you what this approach is. This is I'm still on my rookie contract of protest to the cheetah. Look, I haven't got my big money yet. I haven't got an opportunity to be paid what I'm worth. So all I can really give you is the cheetah t shirt of still jungle cat. Just not the big dog. T shirt. Many way you get it from Disney World is youth medium media. Okay. It's not here. Here we move on. This is the big cake, right? This Bill. This is Ben paid already, so you what it looks like will you can afford the mole sleeve, tyreek hill, and you're, you're going to get your money, but it soon as your time, Cain, your coat, match your hair. See, he's trying to work and you see, you got the tips, but it doesn't look like, oh, BJ. So Adam, what I'm gonna let you do is you're gonna tell the people who were this over best awhile. He's got the suit going on. He's got the tie the shirt, it all matches like the beard in the hair. If Lin's together. Sure. Why. See, I wanna see ten where he's cheetah. Al. Season award show. Got. Yeah, it is. So here's the big deal. These dudes can't get the ball without the quarterback. That's back set it off in a way like it's never been done before. Who does a pre gain Benny old shoot. You see the walk out of the Ferrari. He has on seventeen million accessories. Now you gotta be six, six to sixty to do this. What I want you to do is as as a quarterback, how do you feel about things? I, I need confirmation? Like how many camera people do you think we're needed to film it. Handles. Help me to take. Out of his car, his car one time, Tim, he had. Camera camera there. Hey, this is this Hobo. Hobo he's walking. That's the to me to me. I feel like Wendy helped me like I feel like this is like tights with a tunic. And I felt I'm becoming numb to this. I used to save these were costumes not outfit, but I'm thinking this is an outfit now for Cam. What did you got? To be honest with you. I, this is to bow ties from it to both is five bowtie. Real good effort. A Lori. Based on effort to have the frocks tailed to have a lapel. Flower antelope pinch the title to produce to progress stupidest yet many, no one else he did keep produced in the game. Now, this is a settlement. This is very, this is the same moment for. I said, tyrod Taylor van cash. They started, you have given me all of you, and so I want to give you all of me. I think you for all of your looks, whether it be planned, solid afro, low haircut breeds whatever you do, you do it with class, so you may never be Cleveland's best again, but you always be Sunday's best. Thank you. Well, I really Don tasteful. Just like that the back. I just saved hundreds of dollars by switching to Geico. I should've done this years ago disclaimer crumpling Buchan time is physically impossible unless you know how to build a functioning time machine. Then by all means travel twenty five years back in time, Switzer car insurance Geico you could save up on money while you're there. Please provincial younger self from wearing sleeveless tuxedo t-shirt, parachute pants and glitter, high tops to your senior prom and at long last rectify this horrible crime against nature Geico's absolved of all ability. If you've destroyed the fabric of time and space, Geico fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more. Press coverage now from the nation's capital and the Redskins day Gruden announcing that Adrian Peterson has a sprained ankle. He should however also be ready for New Orleans with the colts fifty four yards away from the touchdown. They needed to win five seconds left. In this game, coach, Frank Reich elected to take out his three time Pro Bowl quarterback and replace him with the backup for the hail, Mary. So out came and to love in came Jacoby percent. Here's luck on the decision. It took me a second to figure out what was going on, but I support the decision. One hundred percent Jacoby made a heck of a throw putt some time and got in got the ball there. So or Jacoby has a stronger than I do. I mean, that's it's sort of what I see in practice did ask you the coach, I was of us thinks that as well, and I'll keep working on getting my arm to where you know where maybe it can't hit a eighty yard, throw throw from. Minus thirty, but now I think it was a no qualms with with that decision could be made that role. I, I'll be honest, I don't know. I was never in a situation to go out there and do it. And I think in this situation, I, I don't know if I if I could have, I'll be honest having to run around and scrambled and suck a foot in the ground and try to chunk, you know, x. amount of yards just as it fell necessary. I case could be made that Lux arm. Strength is still an issue who's average passes travel just five point four yards downfield this time. That's the shortest average fast distance among qualified q piece from two thousand twelve to two thousand sixteen Lux average pass traveled nearly nine yards downfield that was fifth among players with at least a thousand masses at that time. We say Hello inside the film room brought to you by Verizon. And that's a point, of course because Andrew lucked playing for the first time in quite some time after having a surgically repaired throwing shoulder, forget the hell. Mary that's not withstanding. What are you seeing Tim, in terms of his arm, strength, law Ville, Mary would it is exposed something that is real and is there and it's something that's evident when you watch. Andrew luck play, which is that the ball is not spinning out of his hand the way that it did before the injury. I mean, here's a good example kind of a whole shot. The t y Hilton, not able to drive the ball and get it. They're not third and five play was right in front of them. Ball just doesn't get their loses energy to the target is exactly what it does here on the scene to Eric Hebron with the Basel, but behind. It's just not arriving at the target with the same tempo that did fire to the injury. And I will say this and this is why I do think that the hail Mary is somewhat significant. It's basically a sixty yard throw to throw it into the end zone. From there, there really is not a starting quarterback in the National Football League that does not have the ability to make that throw Andy, Dalton, Alex Smith, like you name the core in guys. You don't necessarily along with having a bare arm. So the fact that you you're starting quarterback out that you are compensating over a million dollars per game to throw a sixty yard hail. Mary just goes to show you in here and and our Andrew being asked if he can make that throw and saying, I don't know that I can go to tell you that he's not back. He's not healthy. He's not playing with his fastball. And that's a big deal. A man. He may be playing on Sundays, but he's not playing with, I guess, the full complimentary of, you know, throws that he had before the injury. Will he does that. Insist, the inevitable question. I'm afraid we certainly hope so another quarterback returning from injury. A lot of time period though, Carson Wentz would you see in his debut? Well, obviously it started off a little bit slow. Carson wasn't as accurate. He wasn't a point early, but as the game went on, you saw him get into it. You saw him make huge plays. There was a third and nine late night game on a gut too heavy drive. Here's the play here where he makes two people missing. The backfield gets the ball out to Nelson Aguilar and it's not the play from early on in the season last year against the Washington Redskins, but it is reminiscent it is what you want to see. Carson wins do and it's what he brings to the team that Nick foles did not. And you saw the excitement after the last touchdown drive. You saw what he brings to this team from an emotional standpoint and watching him make plays with his legs outside the pocket has to be a good sign for Doug Peterson and the Philadelphia Eagles Wentz leaned on his tight ends a lot on Sunday. One hundred fifty six of his two hundred fifty. Five passing yards went to tight NC had the best. VR last year when targeting tight ends. Also the Seahawks took down the Cowboys on Sunday behind a pair of interception tomorrow. Thomas who had a bit of a bizarre week after missing, not one, but two, the teams practices, and then he's been the subject of trade rumors. Here was Thomas following Sunday's win. No one hundred and I'm visit myself if there was a little mean I'll be out there. But if I feel like anything, I don't give them to small. I gotta hit a, I'm not. People who is coming up to me and saying that a trade might happen even pre game a couple of top west coast time by psychological gain. But there's like you into Trey tomorrow. Inundate me. I had a great time with the guys. I've been presently for having me tracks and visit the Gaza have been around right now. The games like now that what's your last name? Oh, no, it was going to Banff at the time. I, I have to. Adam Schefter now and our dominant free game headquarters, where do things stand with the Seahawks Earl, Thomas shefty. It's a bit mode right now, Wendy, because Earl Thomas wants that new contract which Seattle has not been went to give him and being that he's not going to get the contract there. He's been trying to force his way out of Seattle, essentially, the Seahawks ready to find him for conduct detrimental to the team last week being late to practice misbehaving and practice. Not doing exactly what they wanted to do. Now. He goes out and plays the game that he did yesterday. And again, a trade is in play by the Tober. Thirtieth trade deadline. It could happen at any point in time. We've heard of the Cowboys inch before we know the Cowboys all for a second round, pick the summer, but what reported yesterday the Kansas City Chiefs also could use some help. You're not gonna see the Atlanta Falcons make a run into and even though they lost Ricardo Allen to a season ending, ruptured achilles. The second safety that they lost to a season in the injury. So Earl, Thomas is sitting there. The Seahawks are in something of a reboot here. Rebuilding mode, and we could see him built at any point. Really, let's go through some injury. Updates at is always the case on Monday. We'll start with the Rams corners. Well, we have mortgage Peters and keep to lead bulletin nursing injuries that could prevent them from playing this short week. You have Marcus Peters situation where he's got a calf injury, a key to leave left the game in the third quarter with an ankle injury. And that means when the Rams play the Vikings, this Thursday night that they will not be at full strength. Both these corners don't look like they'll be able to go against the Vikings s for AJ green more than Lewis said today. He didn't know whether he would be able to play in the next game for the Cincinnati Bengals. He suffered a groin injury and the third quarter more of unsure if they'll be able to go against it, Lanta falcons. He went out of the game yesterday and if not, they'd have to lean on targets like John Ross and Tyler boy. Once again, heaven Ingram suffered a spring medial collateral ligament yesterday, which is actually a relief for the giants because. But he went down here. There were some people who are concerned that the knee injury could be worse than it was. The giants are going to say that he's week-to-week part to imagine that it'll be playing this point in time. But right now you've got a situation where he's got that spring Mito collateral could sideline him a bit and also one the no Muhammad Wilkerson suffer. What is going to be a season ending ankle injury yesterday for the Green Bay Packers, Wendy Adam. Thank you. The NFL has lost a hall of Famer today. Hall of fame receiver. Tommy McDonald has died at eighty four. Mcdonagh was a two time all American for Oklahoma. He played twelve seasons for five NFL teams and was a six time pro bowler at five foot, seven hundred seventy five pounds McDonald had to wait thirty years before becoming the smallest player introduced into the hall of fame when he retired in one thousand nine hundred sixty eight. He ranked second in league history and touchdown catches fourth in yards receiving and six in receptions. That is a perfect jumping off point for their on overreaction Monday. So right now he's jacked. He's. I was ready to go over reaction. It's an overreaction. The next one to say that they are the best that would be an overreaction. I'm just saying to you care. That was tenure rain for reaction who space. Right. That's the Monday. And on and on. We go on this overreaction Monday. How about this? The cardinals picked the wrong time to turn to Josh Rosen. I don't think anybody's gonna argue, it's time it turn, Josh Rosen. But the question here, the timing Ryan or Tim, one of. On the timing. This is not an overreaction. Are you kidding me? One of the best defense in the league to start the season right down to without a lot of time tonight you throw him out there. Go fix this. Knows that you're going to be throwing the football, right? Hey, hey, good luck. You and what happened? It ends in inter-city results in interceptions, and then the next drive ends poorly as well. Here's a bad way for a rookie first rounder to get off to for the Agri. I shell shock war. If you look I, it's not an overreaction to me either. If you look at Josh Rosen after the pig, though he gave you like the little air, no him and he and Aaron Rodgers. Our friends. He gave you like, you know. And I think that's kind of how you felt like you expect like you kind of put me in the situation, a plan against the team who that only has Khalil Mack, but they have a great front seven as all the players into tattling totality are taken. And so they have been Russia's Sam, Bradford all day they were turning him over, which is the reason why you put Josh Rosen in the game. And to me, I always feel like if you're going to go to the rookie over the veteran and commit you make that change forever. So if you're not putting Astros in to be the starting quarterback going forward, you don't put him in that situation when you can get him in this in a spot where he shellshocked or spots where he makes a bad play or he gets injured if you make that change, change us forever. Good point. And you wouldn't see a quarter a coach doing that right, putting rookie right now and then juggling these guys. I would be a terrible idea. We'll check caught up in the moment of his Sam. Certain will know Sam stirred turnover, but then honor stand like like the context of the game of one was what was still available to them. You know, once they were going to get the football look, there are some people around the youth thought that that change could be made at some point on Sunday. I think that they just didn't expect it to come with just over four minutes left and the cardinals down points, right? Tough spot to put Josh Rosen, but now they've a home game this week against Seattle. So if you're going to start him this week. After this week, it's two straight road games including at Minnesota. Although Josh Allen rookie started there and did pretty well, but this would be the Sunday and you can't start yo-yoing these guys. Right? Absolutely. It was a tough spot to put him in all ready. You don't wanna make it any worse by not going to him this week, and by the way, if they do go to him and I don't mean to be cruel about what's since you've been having Sam Bradford on the roster because you got Mike. We were saying this earlier, so say you have Mike Glennon, but and you know where the landing spot is. There's a team in that same division that's looking for San Francisco. That contract way they release them than Jerry. I mean, the cardinals have a chance to save some money and they got Glenn in there to backup. Okay, Todd quarterbacks. How about this? All right. This young man is thirty nine role within not one bit. Tom Brady I will leave forty one. So I say this drew Brees will play longer than Tom Brady Ryan Clark is this an overreaction. This is not a no reaction. When you look at the way, drew readers playing in how he's still consistent in what he does well, and also adding some things to his game. Numero who you put on the team with drew Brees and showing Payton. They become productive. Might Thomas has has broken record for most receptions in the first three games because he's with drew Brees and Sean Payton drew is not slowing down. Physically drew is not slowing down mentally, and there's also not the other hoopla around drew Brees that we're starting to see around Tom Brady the New England, Patriots and Bill Belichick. We know Tom Brady isn't gonna play some wells, but he is talking. About being scared of being replaced. He's saying things like there's things being reported that he wouldn't mind a divorce with Bill Belichick. You don't hear those things. The two people who are tied together the best as quarterback in, hey, coach are not the guys in New England with the most wins. It's these two guys who produce year in a year out and who actually have a relationship where each side is mutually invested in the other. Yeah, it's not on over action for me either. I, there's no drama and the other aspect of his rounded by good young player and. Energizing. I think the other aspect of it and I've said this all the entire time when people talk about how long somebody's gonna play, usually what ends it for a guy. It was when he realizes that he's missing his kids grownup, missing his kids playing sports or doing whatever it is. Drew's kids are younger. So I I'm saying actually been playing longer. Not only he's done a great job teams like on social media, bringing them to the silly, they're always around. They're, they're doing things around the complex so that hell they're, they're not welcome in New England. Go in there. By different. You see a lot of that with him. And so to me, I don't think it's an overreaction at all to say that or not an overreaction. Say that whatever the over action now not a reaction. Just little screen written downpour. Right. Make that face. Thank you. Talking about Tom Brady, as we talked about, obviously the receiving core, they'll get some folks back and there's some things that aren't clicking. But when you look at Brady just Tom Brady, do you see? Are you seeing anything different this year than he did this. That's out there issue. What are you saying? You know, I, I agree. I think their problems are are are larger than than tyrod. Yeah, but it was just like every other team is going to be focused on him because he set such a high level of excellence. It's a high bar. Do not miss center with Scott Ben pal Astor Monday night football. He'll talk with Steph curry on NBA media day, plus a sportscenter conversation with LeBron James and the worst beat to the weekend sportscenter with SBP after the Steelers bucks on ESPN ESPN app time. Now for sounds of the week. I game. All right. I didn't need that again. It gets it markets. One play that I taught Patrick how to do that one rolled out through. Peeling away being rushed now peels back to his right, trying to keep the play allied begging fires at it's back. Yeah, I've thought about it, but sometimes you got to do something that they don't expect, you know, goes to the left side and grease. This tackle and dies for the touchdown. Maybe I didn't expect. Obviously, emotions run hyphen moment. I woke up this morning but felt like riding a bike in back. We all feel for Jimmy, there's no doubt about it. His upraised not hurting with quarterback Houston. Well, obviously I don't do it. Believable stop about. He's playing football enforce. It is leaves. Won't indirection don't like against soft report today. That said, you're almost who is Britain to retire yet it happened. Brady's my quarterback wasn't going anywhere very. I just wanted to. I don't think anybody Clinton playoff spot today. I don't think anybody was eliminated today. I would probably just tell them go home and have a scotch this I'm going to do. So those guys are forced into it. Lake count has had some physician flex, and hopefully that's not a real firearm force right there. Bye. Oh, as long as it's not the real thing, of course. All right. Week three. I mean anybody cutting up, you know into coming, but it happened, but we got one more Adam Schefter before we pick this game, we'll ask you what you watching. Well, off the field story, Ryan Fitzpatrick who's made a lot of headlines this year. His wife LIZA is with the couples, seventh child in January, goodness. So he's not only been challenging Patrick Mahomes for the leaving touchdown passes, but he's challenging Philip wherever. Children. Is their oldest one is their youngest, God, guts, guts, beat here. Because of that, I like the Steelers tonight. Many kids. There's no way you're getting all work, things like that. Twenty four, thirteen Pittsburgh. Well, for me, I'm going to stick with fits magic and I know rowing God, you hate Pittsburgh. Tampa Bay twenty four twenty. I think it's patently continues to play well in the Steeler d- can't stop. Twenty eight, twenty one. I got the I we'll stay with Patrick. Would you got Steve Wilkes named Josh Rosen, starting quarterback in our makes now it makes sense that we talked about the timing of that decision and made the point. If you do it, then you stick with it. Now does appear. That's the case. So we got Baker Mayfield starting on Sunday, Josh Rosen it, a young man's game. Everybody in boy in that the truth. Oh. Go schefter.

C-Lo Sets His Fandom Aside For The Sake Of His Profession

"Hey, what's up? I'm jerry. Oh, hi there now, and we do a podcast like almost every day. But not quite it's the Alan Jerry post game podcast. We really started to talk about things we didn't get to on the boomer and geo shell but now it's really just us talking about robots rats in New York City and dome people in Florida and porn sites. That do studies and polls. Yes, studies in polls, you can download and subscribe on radio dot com and the new radio dot com app. So we have a new jet Salman in studio. The jerseys ceelo's got his Jamal Adams jersey that he will be entering the studio with these being fashionably late. So he can make a big grand entrance. But you know, I saw a couple of people say that either the black uniform with the green helmet I wish it was a black helmet with the black uniform. But you can't do that. Now, the NFL has a rule where every played essentially it's one helmet unless something happens that helmet, and they don't want, you know, players. Weren multiple helmets. So if you had a black uniform you could wear a black helmet with it that be pretty cool. Or if you wanted to go throwback and go back to your original jerseys for one game, and where the white helmet, you can go back, and and do a throwback. You know when I play for the jets. We did every throwback game. And they like they manufactured are green helmets that try to look like the old white helmets. But it doesn't work. Yeah. So because the rule in the in the concussion problems and all that other stuff each player gets one helmet. They don't get multiple helmets. And that's why you're basically stuck with that helmet with whatever, you know, form combination us, so I've been called a fraud over the last couple of days because of my going to Yankees opening day not going to city field for Mets opening day wearing this jersey. But to me, you know, being an NFC Minnesota Vikings fan and the jets that's not a really it's something that you know, Packers at a bears at a lions even the giants. It'd be a different story. Now ceelo's giants fan. The giants. Fans jet fans, of course, don't like one another. I he is wearing the jets jersey this morning are do you feel guilty about this at all? Do you feel fraudulent in any way with your Jamal Adams jersey? No, I feel I feel kind of like a mannequin right now. We're showing off the new New Jersey as part of the show. I never had anything against the jets. I spent four years covering the jets. Yup. So it's all good. I loved when Joe beningo would not put you on this show when you were covering the jets because you were a giants fan covering the jets, and he believed that your opinion on the matters be balloted all this Joe beningo. He's about seventy five years. Working that seventy three. Coming from two thousand thirteen through thirteen fourteen sixteen right? And I remember we used to ask you to ask a very long or would you ever get a question in? Yes. I did get some I would save it because my questions were very long. Finally got right. Exactly. I never answered my own question, though, some reporters like to do that. Yes. Some time to time. Don't care dirty at all as he giants jersey. Oh, no. I don't know. Why here's why you're an adult that I grew up a giants fan. Yes. But now working in the business, right? As we say, you know, I try to be objective about everything. So yes, my Yankee fan of still comes out by ranger fandom still comes out comes out. And so does your Yankee. I mean, you you create the narrative here when you have your opportunity to everybody was six twenty after. Arizona after you. Right. Exactly. When you you start the day off, you know that you're essentially the first guy that's going to be talking about it. I suppose that you're going to set the narrative for the day. And it's funny. How you did that you know, the other day when when Aaron Boone was struggling in the US. Nineteen times all that other stuff and then you set the negative tone. And that's all I heard from this radio station, and look how they responded did was human. What's happening today? See Lord brought to you by the Long Island boat show stopped by NYC be live with the Nassau Coliseum. April fifth through seventh. Visit NY boat shows dot com was a good response for the Yanks yesterday. Playing against the Orioles in their home opener down at Camden Yards. Sump end up with the eight four victory they trailed four one after five James Paxton had a really tough first inning. Put the Yanks and a quick three nothing hole. But the bombers went to work in the sixth glacier Torres leading the way in the comeback victory. Swung head high in the air to that ball is high head as far as God. It's a three run home run. The second home run of the day. It is glacier day. Oh, like, a good glacier Torres is they're John. Sterling reef known beef tongue for glacier to Homer day. Four for four four R B I's. Gary Sanchez in Luke Voight, also went deep void blown it. Open three run shot in the ninth breaking out of his early season slot kit around earlier today. It's like, I'm officially taking my bad off. L to a lot of things on the I L, thankfully, his bad comes off at least for one day as for glacier. He was the guy to step up big with the offense struggling and with all the injuries. And he wasn't over thinking any of that anger is the game. I mean stuff we know. I think we we have a really good good guy to to to try to help courtesy of. Yes. After the game Paxton settled down following that. Brutal. I which included run scoring on a buck and a wild pitch ended up going five and a third struck out ninety got his first Yankee win it, Mitzi. He didn't have the right approach to begin the game trying to pitch a little bit too much nut. I sitting over thinking instead of just letting a rip Aaron Boone said he almost ended up pulling it you don't have the balk the wild pitch. And you know, we're getting a guy up, you know, because he couldn't go much longer there in that first inning. I give credit where it's due. I liked that Boone showed some emotion this game barking at the unpire is calling low or the home plate umpire specifically calling some low strikes on Aaron judge who ended up with the golden sombrero anytime. You. Strike out four times. Not a it's not a great taste pretty frustrating. Yes. I mean, if you're if you're judging by the box on yes, I mean that that home plate umpire was all over the place at least two of his strikeouts. Could have ended up as walks, and he didn't have happened conversation with the a one shot a couple of things to say and just a couple of questions asked. And that's it like him. Even he pulled it very, Derek jeeter. Like, it was sort of a turn put the head down. You know, he didn't really show them up. He wasn't screaming at him or anything like that. But it's a tough situation with him. But I feel like I saw a stat yesterday. Believe he leads the majors in missed strike halls bolt like below the strike zone since he came into the league because he's so freaking huge. I feel like for the unpire is it comes across it looks like a strike at the knees and for him it's actually below because he's what six foot seven. Most importantly, obviously, the Yankees get the win. They get the home run bats going and they start their road trip on a high note off today in that series will continue Saturday down in Baltimore now as for the Mets at Citi field, the sleep deprived club had a rough home open. Syndergaard with a left leg kick delivers. Curveball. That's it in the air a left pretty Deepak goes Nebo still going onto the track at the wallets. God. Oh, run for Victor rope lasts. How he rose WCBS eight eighty I'm Howie rose. Although Homer part of a four nothing national shutout over the Mets, Stephen Strasburg outdueling Noah Syndergaard, now, I thought I had a Mickey Callaway clip here loaded, it might be or might be Syndergaard. Let's find out together. It's going to be one of the two gotta give credited with Richie. Great pitcher in any head. Really good stuff. Tonight his execution pitches at the bottom of the zone keeping us off kilter, and they just beat us. Yes. They did. Here's the deal. The Mets could ahead. This came at four o'clock right wanted to they kept it at one o'clock and Noah Syndergaard is right. I mean, he's the only one that got a good night's sleep. Everybody else looked like they didn't get any sleep. Yeah. And they were all excited about playing and all that other stuff. So they probably running on a Drennan as a matter of fact, you know, Keith disappeared a couple of times yesterday during the game. Is that right? Yeah. They finally Gary saying what kind of car is that. They started talking about Keith's tesla, and yeah, they're not there's enough charge in the battery and all this other garbage. And Keith had no idea that they were talking to him about it because I know because he was exhausted and tired, and he was taking a nap was right? He was bitching combined. The older we get the more we bitch and complain about on its own. The home opener. Yeah. But how many home offers seat been a part of that's fine. But my point is it's the first one week into the season. I mean, I don't I don't really take the I we can all understand what it's like to be sleep deprived. So this one thing so I get that. However, you're right early on in the season. These guys are young guys for the most part the player should be. You should be forget about the booth second. And you should be juiced up because it's home just when you hear the introductions into the full house. Yeah. It was. I mean, it was chilly. But it wasn't like it was rainy and thirty. Yeah. So I mean, I don't know. And then the whole Dom Smith thing that you hear that. Yes. So the plane got held up because he had the couldn't go to the bathroom. Yeah. Drug test drug test where you have to random drug tests where you have to urinate at that point a lot of pressure, and he couldn't do it. The only guy holding up the whole organization traveling party for forty minutes. I don't know, man. You're right. Great, no spots. So I go I be like, look, you're you're staying behind Cleese p here. God. But they look like a team. I got no sleep. Yeah. Here is the Syndergaard cut on that just to circle using don't feel good. But I don't think we were in the proper situation when ballgame baseman. The rest of the guys sleep and travel. Now, you know, he didn't give up one hit six innings. Yeah. He just to walk the back. The back is exactly Strasbourg those six and two-thirds nine ks. So now, you mentioned the dump Smith aspect of it als-. Tell me on the warm up show that Robinson could owed it and get into like five years you get GP now. Now a couple of questions on this one. The guy grew up in New York, essentially, right? He doesn't know his way around. Come on, man. He you. You out. He went lead on off a road trip. They played dig aim after nineteen eighty you know, just as good as anybody. There's so many areas in the state area that even though we've grown up mileage not that far away. It's like another planet. Okay. Do we think he chose to live in a different area than he did? Yes. Yes. I do. We don't get to the bottom of where he's living now in the area giver takes is for these with. I the GPS screwed up. Come on anyone out. That's what I I don't think he went. I find that GPS screw them. They got back to city two-thirty. It took him to the clubhouse through. They said they would to the clubhouse. I don't know, man. Also say I got my man's back on this landed at LaGuardia and then went to city field where their cars were polarized. Yes, they take everyday take the bus back. There's Avak does actually video of the S. And why guys getting off the bus there at city two thirty in the morning. A few hours. You know, if you're good enough, you're going to get paid three hundred million dollars. Yeah. Ryan you're on charter. I get all that. Some I do agree that they could have moved the start time back to four o'clock in the little bit. And maybe an extra hour or sleep. Maybe that would have worked. I don't know. But at the end of the day when one hundred sixty two is over we're not going to be thinking about this imagine if they didn't game in Miami was six ten first pitch the night before magic. They played like a regular seven o'clock. Even would have been even later went to extra innings to one o'clock game down to Miami. Because you know, why mammy did want to sure thank until tickets. Whether it's one o'clock game six km who cares? Okay. Fair enough a couple of days stuck into the Mets you that's what it was. I actually I think the Mets stuck into themselves because they couldn't they could have actually play the game yesterday at four o'clock it listen, they knew this was happening. It's unfortunate the plane got held. I just don't wanna hear it as an excuse yet. But it's part of it. It's just that. I like and Mickey didn't use it. He said, hey, they credit the nationals don't blame the schedule. So there you go your manager was on top of that. He's in lockstep with you a couple of other notables from out of town last night. Trevor Bauer had a no hitter going through seven hundred seventeen pitches. Terry Francona lifted him Bauer after the game said it was the right thing to do. Indians. Beat the Blue Jays four to one. You had the Red Sox lose again out in Oakland A's, beat them seven three Boston falls to two and six and the Braves beat the cubs nine to four big day for night. I should say for Nick Mark because he was five for five three doubles of five RBI for Atlanta. Some sounds from the jersey on. Yes, good last night. We'll get to a lot of this stuff throughout the course of there's lots of sift through the live feed that the jets ran was like almost an hour long. And from the start of it. It took them almost a half hour to unveil the jersey. So they really milked it and gave you a little everything going on there. I guess it was in Times Square is that where Gotham hall them. High is time squad Scott them green. So they're going to have it that makes sense. There you go. All right. So j b smooth obviously was year MC. So as they bring him out. Out. There's a DJ that's playing some beets and JB's trying to, you know, get into the moment. And and really kinda get the crowd going, and I didn't get a lot of help from the DJ. Here's a sample. Run. The Ron again. I don't want to know what it's going in. Rod again. Hi who will awkward tough spot for him initially? Nobody put their hands up. Yeah. Basically looked at the crowd Brian Costello and some guy with a camera from Newsday. Nobody was putting their hands best. They're made. I don't know. I don't think you was. Brian Costello Ehrich Samir. Was he was tweeden. I think the whole beat was there. Yeah. Casella the line of the night on Twitter as this the lead in was going on before they got the jerseys and all the pomp and circumstance. He tweeted out. I went to college for this line. Yeah. Good job. WFAN jets reporter Brian Costello. Also, the New York Post. I we did. Of course, get the token boomer reference in there as well from JB's snuck he was going through the quarterbacks jet history. Did get a quick mention. Going to assess Houma science. Yes. Any test birdie ya'll? Yeah. Street fight about that boomer size in the street. Streetfight type of guy one hundred percent. Yeah. Oh, yeah. You would Vinnie test birdie guys out in the street? What has the right jab? I if I need to, you know, use it all use it because you lead in with the right, right? And then you pop with just bring that left. The house comes like the house now J said U N, Vinny Testaverde the street guys. What about you against Vinny Testaverde beat me men? See the guys like solid as Rockies. Statuesque did say with the last name like that. He must have some connections in the areas. Well, offended by that. Mafia? Lawyers. Now, I'll I recognize I'm not really up on current music. Okay. I never heard of this guy. Apparently, he's a multi platinum or winning. No Jettas van was watching it max Mack, Matt. Yes. Yes. So he came out and he's saying song with some New York references or whatever. And you know, it was it was a little weird. But this was the tail end of even though we had a kind of seizing. No, I'm still New York. But I'm ready for that Super Bowl ring two thousand nights. Right. New york. June. Thank you Jez baby much love. Let's go helluva crowd. Reacts? You might know this one max song. I mean, nobody claps. This song. Yeah. I've heard this on the radio. Okay. All right. So he's on the radio tough spot. Wow. Not as not as a singer. What what garbage? It's garbage garbage. Come on. I want to hear the song. John was that last night? Through and it was a rough season last. Slack. You name. Cannot stop. Odd you ever? Whatever the hell you smoke. We set me. I know that song. For that song. That's your voice on track. Lafayette. It was a struggle to. This guy's got a hit song and a radio probably plays to sold out crowds and millions of teenagers at wanna hear his music. And then last night, I got last thing got Neil gluttonous friend. The vast Americo or the Allman brothers. Something that would make sense. France jet beat just wondering, I mean, really this is what it comes to cover in uniform unveiling jersey unveiling I couldn't believe when you had a rough. Thank god. You got rid of bowls got it and have a polls. Now, your head coach looks like a serial killer. Had you now go insane. So they did finally get to the jerseys. We've got the what the Gotham green? It's spotlight white spotlight. White and self black. Okay. I do like the color scheme. I will say and the helmet looks very sharp on Jamaa Adams, the the black uniforms. Great that black, and then he also know Jamal likes and he was pictured at in his well, and he says it was his the white with the green pants. He likes his well, I like that look the the base look of the five combinations. I think the base the green on the white is my least favourite right on a why not sure what it is. All white myself. The all white looks helmet. Yeah. Look sharp. Just keep picture and Todd Bowles like the jets that he left in the jets now. Levian bell rap career all this money in free agency, new uniform, GB smooth max. Watch livestream with the hill going. You've spent how month money hundred million dollars in free agency.

Braylon Edwards, former NFL WR

"This sporting life on ESPN radio and the ESPN APP here's Jeremy Shop our next guess had a legendary career at Michigan he was outstanding receiver in the NFL. He's the author of a new book and the title really does say it all all doing it my way my outspoken life as Michigan Wolverine. NFL Receiver and beyond is a pleasure to welcome to the sporting life the one and only Brian Edwards words Braille and thank you for joining us. Thanks for having a long time. It's been a long time since we spoke it in and and as your dress in the book railing When People Think about bat you they don't just think about your talents as a receiver they don't think about the big games that AFC title games or the Rose Bowls. They think about the controversies why you you delve into them in this book Why did you want to dredge all of that stuff up. I think a lot of times people don't get a chance to tell their story already exactly happened and so when things come out more so what the perception is at the time and then that becomes a story over years you know at that's what it is written in stone so it was a good time for me to be able to tell all the story story in terms of every story from you is to incidents outside nightclubs. Lebron James's people cetera there were other things at at play play in those situations but I just chose it took the you know not saying anything that the media dictate not the media the media personnel for my teams dictate. Hey it's on one matter and I got quiet and never said anything and they'll never get a chance to talk plus. There's a lot of good things that happened to you know. There's a lot of improper endeavors. That have happened happened a lot of things that happen to feel that were great. There are a lot of other things to talk about to you know depression bullying when I was a kid so it's a it's a heck of a story and there's there's a lot of things to put out there in the book speaking with Brian Edwards the former Mishkin and NFL receiver his new book is doing it my way my outspoken spoken life as a Michigan Wolverine. NFL Receiver and beyond looking back at it now more than a decade removed from kind of the moment at which you were you were really burning bright and everybody was paying attention to everything going on with Brian Edwards. What would you tell that young man now. How about the way he was leading his life back. Then I entertainment make sure you surround yourself with good people that have the same morals and the same goals and envision as you. I think I was hanging around with a lot of people that were you know quote unquote friends and finger quotations and anger on or etc etc that it and don't get this wrong. I take off everything I did. Everybody says may was my father. Good decision probably would help my mother or people around my corner. Your Reed Birdman my former agents so you know but with that being said I could go back and tell that guy. Hey listen. You know you want people to have the same amount to lose you. You want to have the same visions goals when you hanging around people that become your friends. You guys both want success with sheer. She your group wants success and you see it the same weighing business the same way you guys won't let each other failed. You guys won't let each other being bs situations. That's how you look guys and women that have maintained retirement asset successive excessive high level they stay in a circle in which hey I don't Wanna be like I don't WanNa be the Guy Circle. That's tough enough if you will so you know that's what I would tell the person I once. They don't have fun. Just make sure you yourself at the white people that have the same goals and that's race as you were speaking with Braille and redwoods deform pro bowl receiver the former Michigan Wolverine Marine Star. He was the third overall pick in the two thousand five. NFL draft by the Cleveland Browns in only your third season in the League Braille Lynn you at twelve hundred eighty nine receiving yards you had eighty receptions your pro bowler. You had some other good years notably with the jets. Let's in two thousand ten almost a thousand yards receiving but your career didn't go the way you hoped it would and although you last much longer than most lasts in the nfl you you were someone who was thought of his hall of fame talent you their injuries. There are other things that went on what was it like just being caught up in that Maelstrom and and not being able to get yet every ounce of your talents to to use every ounce the way that you would have wished I was very frustrated. You know a lot of times success predicated on. Where're you going like were you. Were you drafted within you play for I was drawn to the Cleveland browns and played with injuries and uncertainties and continue can Kenya road road. organizational changes be offense coordinator head coach ownership. I look at go to New York. Jets have young quarterbacks didn't in trust but there wasn't a lot of airing it out there where you can go and have success injury San Fran. I respect to the field to get out there because you're kind of putting the pressure on and it was the first time I hadn't been in a stable situation. You know when I got a friend. There's a one year. Do there was no stability. There was no Nex six year. There was no guarantee that was gonNA start so when I got hurt when I was starting and tried to come back I tried to rush back need just never was the same I play for Seattle. I just feel the knee I was getting cortisone shots. I'm way too young at that time to be getting cortisone shot. Try One more time with jets and two thousand fifteen and they tore ligaments in my ankle in the pre season against a Jaguars and it was time to stop. I I wish my curriculum differently from that standpoint. I wish I could have been one of those guys that got drafted and the end of the first round to the coat or to you know to a team that was the cowboys or to playoff consistency more even just kept consistent offense like you know Cleveland Seventeen quarterbacks and in four and a half season. I remember member. I remember all those guys. No I mean it's hard to remember all of them but I remember that. There were a lot of them. Yeah I mean I mean. We're speaking railing. Edwards and his new book is doing it my way my I had spoken. Life is a Michigan Wolverine. NFL Receiver and beyond and you bring up a good point. I mean so much of success as you say. Day is predicated on things out of your control and it's not just injuries but it's the people around you in the ultimate team game and yet if people don't want to hear that they don't want to hear that you know. I was with a dysfunctional franchise that there were seventeen quarterbacks that I wasn't playing with drew brees or with peyton manning or Tom Brady and but that's that's where the differences made me look at a guy like Reggie ridgway originally was a he was a he's. It's a pretty good receiver draft out of University of Miami. he goes at the end of the first round yeah as opposed to being drafted to the codes and the rest is history is reggie round is Reggie Wayne Eh a pro bowl hall of fame where I receiver yes. What do you been affordable how Phobos last all the way receiver if he was dragged into the buffalo bills goes if he was drafted to the Cleveland browns you know I I don't think so. I think I look at the John Lynch. John Lynch went to a perfect system. I mean I love John Lynch as a person he's one of the nicest people with him and his wife and I've ever met John. Lynch doesn't play for Tony done to system and he doesn't play even at the end of his career in Denver broncos. Ronco campuses system was they kinda dented for him. He's not a hall of Fame Guy. He's just another guy out there playing safety so a Lotta Times is about where you go and I feel like I was you know I have such luck in that but I'm not complaining because I had the chance to play a high level. I had a chance to have their football year at a chance that Monday night football game uh-huh and Cleveland when we beat the giants returning Super Bowl Champs. I got a chance to go to to. AFC Championship Games. I mean you look at the jets history. The two teams play probably the second and third best teams and jets history well maybe third and Fourth Ed Vinny Testaverde ten years. Maybe two or four I I give them thirty four Braley before we let you go. It's great catching up after all these years but you've been out in the news a little bit recently. you know talking about your. Alma Mater talking about your former coach Jim Harbaugh and and the words you've used I think are light years behind the team in Columbus Ohio Ohio state and it's everyone's entitled to their opinion and I would never discourage which anyone from sharing their opinions especially someone with standing that you have what makes you say that though other than the fact that Michigan's lost fourteen fifteen to Ohio State fifteen definitely a great start but you know in the in the space of the conversation was more so along the lines of say has identity they stay true to over the last if you start in two thousand one with trestle from trust of Phil I'm from trustful serving Meyer. They you still keep the same identity they're going to have quarterbacks that can run quarterbacks that can pass the ball short. They're gonNA have athletes at the wide receiver position. They can take the ball in and punching him for them. They're gonNA have a great run game. They're gonNA have great pieces. If you look it teams over the last eighteen years they all have the same identity linnea able to have success in order to be a national championship change. You have to have the formula. Is You need a decent that can play and win game defense building sandwiches but you have to have a quarterback that is arguably in highland conversation that definitely should be first team all conference and you have to have a running back that is potentially a second round last or in the heisman conversation. I feel like when you look at certain things how they've been one another when you watch them. Play you see a team that you know has a potential to be there at the end of the year when you watch Oklahoma when you watch Clemson Alabama Georgia when you watch these things you see something that okay this is. This is even penn state. You will save Long Vicky mcsorley in those guys when you watch Michigan you. You have the same questions each year like it's who's going to be the quarterback who's GONNA run. The Ball Michigan hasn't had that that offense offensive stuff like Lansing Michigan offense of study was Denard Robinson and deny rounds and finished in two thousand twelve two thousand thirteen and before that you know no who's the other guy had a wide receiver play. Make words like this guy is just it. This is the the criminal the croome like he's the one so I don't mean to talk about. Oh my institution. I've just exactly nineteen ninety two so that being said I just like that was going to take eight for change and that's what I mean by light years behind like highest gets it and they stay true like we been asking the same question of missing this goes beyond Jim. Harbaugh just goes brady going to the rich right every year. WHO's The quarterback. WHO's the QUARTERBACK GONNA BE. WHO's GonNa be this year. It's always between three guys. It's never a guy we're never moving. The next season is never like all right guys coming back really gonNA build around him. Even this year it's like say Patterson Stat wise percentage wise that okay okay last year but even issues like McCaffrey Guy Joe Mill- even twenty years ago in one of those guys was named. Tom Brady couldn't get the job exactly. Did you Hanson into new Tom Brady. Is it Scott Leffler now coaching the bolander so it's always a question lose the why receipts right all right have you so those aren't questions at the major institutions that are weighing. Those are not the question so I think that's what I mean by light years. I know people hate there and I didn't say it in that way but that's what I mean like. The identity has not been. It's it's tough love from Brooklyn Edwards for his beloved love. It will veterans his new book is doing it my way my outspoken life and it is still outspoken as Michigan Wolverine. NFL receiver and and beyond Berlin as I said it's a pleasure catching up with you and congratulations with the book and good luck with Selma as many as possible possible so I'd like to tell the authors to come on the show thank you maybe we'll we'll catch up into a recap in a round. Thanksgiving before those Baguettes I would love to do that. Let's let's do it your your book. Let's do it.

"<music> welcome everyone to a special edition of N._F._l.. Live on deck today at the N._F._l.. Celebrates one hundred season just six weeks away however we are just five weeks away in college. Football Opens It one hundred fiftieth the anniversary so today welcome N._F._l.. You were combining the two worlds to answer age-old question what college produces the best n._F._l.. Talent however I'm Wendy net sand Hutus here you know what's better to be on this panel our expert notice icy expert telling me when Lewis Minute of her panter on the list not on the House for back the quarterback guru he and his brother in a lot of N._F._l.. Games James A lot and Ryan Clark. You see the L. L._S._U.. They are ills college football. L. Is Jonathan Vilma bike. He will join US shortly. He happened to win a National Championship and Oh by the way a super bowl as well coming up on N._F._l.. Live will break down position by position which college produces the best quarterback Oklahoma has the number one overall pick the last two years we have the top ten plays all the N._F._l.. Superstars when they were in college and answering big question which school produces the best all time N._F._l.. Talent we had to ask the players themselves to kick things off. We're the first pick quarterback Oklahoma Viva say Oklahoma Alabama Clemson because proven it is one atop factory the Ohio state highest in Alabama. 'cause I never lost beat out. You really can't understand it into your inside. Sadness programming is all about the you for N._F._l.. Because of Georgia in every aspect but I think L._S._U.. CRESA environment of gray competition and guys is trying to feed off of IT University of Pittsburgh. You Got Dorset. Dan Marina you got Larry. Fitzgerald was not a me show. It's about having everybody involved in working for the Sandal clumps in would cushman he's been doing. He's making people believe everything is possible for House is the best our stop it. Stop stuff well. Let's start shall we with the most players from each college currently in the N._F._l.. Alabama leads the way with V with sixty five players players followed by Ohio state in second place with fifty eight so we're going to debate these schools I in terms of who is best at producing N._F._l.. Challenge here's a tale of the tape on Alabama at Ohio state success since the two thousand draft folks tools I have had thirty one first round picks the most of any school while the Buckeyes have thirteen more total picks in the last twenty drafts but Bama's players have been slightly more successful in the league producing three more pro bowlers than Ohio St Louis Rick. Let's start with the crimson tide. They're starting eleven if you will offense and defense current N._F._l.. Talent there's any question that these are both very impressive lineups that if Alabama can roll these teams out there right now now. I think they'd win a few games without a doubt. If you look at the offense aside outside of the ball the first thing that jumps out of these starting eleven are the two wide receivers look Julio. Jones is one of the finest athletes in the N._F._l.. For guardless of position he's in the news right now because he's about to get a new contract extension and he's really one of the he's one of the transcendent players at the position that this game the scene Amari Cooper the same way. When Amari came out of college? I remember doing his tape in thinking point honestly as far as catching one pet and run wide receiver. I hadn't seen one as good as him as him. In a long long time on the defensive side look they have fine players throughout the eleven here really that when you get to the secondary and you guys like Eddie Jackson Landon Collins I mean these guys are disband tastic players on the front dont`a hightower our multiple time superbowl winner. These are great great players right here. Make our way to Columbus shower of the to Ohio state you go to the offense side of the football. Look the first thing that jumps out without a doubt as Ezekiel Elliott because if he's not the best running back in the N._F._l.. He would be considered a top three running back in the N._F._l.. Wide Receiver Michael Thomas Really someone who was unheralded coming out of college. He's a tremendous tremendous. Pro will probably be the highest paid wide receiver in the N._F._l.. In short time then move over to the defensive side of the ball this this is where really this football team really kind of jumps off the board starting up Front Joey Bosa Cam Hayward those are two of the best defense alignment in the N._F._l.. Right now and then when you look down there at the Secondary Malcolm Dyson Dinkins Denzel Ward Marshon Lattimore doesn't let's get much better than that. All right Jonathan Vilma made his way again surly qualified to weigh in on this discussion. Look I mean there's a shortage of talent with either of these squads. It's almost ridiculous factory and a lot of ways both of these institutions but let the debate again a Ryan Clark. You can't pick L._S._U.. Just yet but when you look at this group what stands out L._S._U.'s better than both of these things we're gonNA get to that. We're supposed to be talking outlets. Let's be honest. There's amazing players. Neither one of them have a quarterback right before proven yet though little I mean why don't we always have to see something first before we can get you well Ray Richardson running back right you saw God compare that with you why time gentlemen we're GonNa play Nice Got Ninety minutes ago. You're the Glenn Difference from every other position that we're looking at okay fair enough now back to you Louis. It is a production results oriented industry. Is it not so it is fair to say seeing something. Does one believe they'll be success won't sure but I mean we're we'll see this is kind of like a combination of what they have done in college. What some of these guys have done in the pros in some of it's a little bit of projecting about what they're gonNA continue to do in the pros? That's how I'm going to expand it to that all right so at quarterback quarterback Dwayne Haskins I believe right now. There's no comparison as far as I don't care what A._J.. McCarron did it Alabama cows tape. Those Wayne has close exact Haskins is going to be a fine football player. What's going to happen to him? Really is going to be more predicated on what Washington redskins overall due to him then what he does to himself. I firmly believe that as far as these rousers overall look the wide receiver position Julio Jones Amari Cooper. Julio Jones's the standard if you go and look N._F._l.. For an offices and look in their scouting books books every team has a standard at every position that they put for scouts the suit for as far as whenever when their scouting people polio is going to be on that list for for many many teams he's about as good as it gets so skill positions at Alabama are awesome. The defensive players at Ohio State is what stands out for me as far as their front seven is concerned particularly their defensive line and their secondary Denzel Award Marshon Lattimore. You tell me a team that wouldn't take those two young men right now and startled. Let me ask you a specific question since you spend some time as an analyst watching these players at the collegiate level if you had to choose either of this group Alabama Ohio state who's players really got better or who took a bigger step forward than you anticipated when they got to the N._F._l.. Out To you to dance your last part no neither standout. They're pretty equal because watching these guys watching Jonathan Allen he played okay well Dante. I'll tell you knew who is going to be tremendous player defensive player C._J.. Moseley's same thing and then you go to the other side and you look at Joey Bosa Nick Bosa Darren like Malcolm Jenkins. I play with Malcolm Jenkins in in New Orleans knew he was going to be a study. He's Philistine but what is surprising how fast or House they defense is. I did not realize how fast defensive you think big ten you didn't big Brawley guys not so fast but these guys can move joey. Bosa also can move nick volks in Darren League. We know the Burner Malcolm J. Denzel War March. I mean that is a very very talented athletic fast fast defense. I thought I was going to jump in your rookie. I think that's a great question Wendy about as far as what teams teams have players that have gotten better pros. You look at Ohio state this look at their offense. In particular Michael. Thomas was a good wide receiver to hire Stayton. He's fantastic now. He's GonNa be highest paid wide receiver in the N._F._l.. Andrew Norwell most people wouldn't even know Andrew Norwell well what from Andrew Doorbell he right now just judge Moore Norwell can't open open some N._F._l.. Spectacular and even on the defensive side of the ball. I didn't think Marshon lattimore. I've liked Marshon Lattimore at Ohio state. I didn't love Marcet. He has taken his game to another level as well in the really own Alabama side you know how I feel about Alabama I feel nick and what he does and how he builds his program but really focus on their offense align that was just look okay and think about that question. Wendy Wendy asked how many players have gotten better how many have continued to improve Andre Smith may have his best days at Alabama. Dame's carpenter has really been good pro Brian Kelly the jury still out he could be a he's a good player. He's GonNa play already in Indianapolis D._J.. fluker was he ever ever really that guy that dominant guy no. He hasn't been Cam Robinson. Have you seen story so it's interesting because they're preventing people have been many people who've hit Alabama and said they get the best out of their players at Alabama. Maybe it's good discussion legal where people go by what teams there drafted so we look at Michael Thomas he falls into a place where he needs an accurate passer and he's one of the most accurate passers all the time also about the place you land in ashore and how they develop you ask Josh Rosen he absolutely he knows that all too well. I ten Hasselbeck. The whole point of this is to pick one of our producers here a little bit we talked. I'm going Alabama mainly change quarterbacks. Yeah I think looks great point about the offensive line at Alabama because so many of them when you look at them just in terms of body type you're like Oh my God look at those guys body type wise but like I don't know that some of those guys have come in and be like Oh and they got a whole lot better. We're obviously splitting hairs here on this ongoing Alabama Lewis Sorry Nick. Oh from a hustle change your mind or did you stick the way said one because I don't care if between Haskins hasn't played. I think he's I think he's in the saints. Stratosphere is A._J.. McCarron so I like that I liked it their offense of line one of the things that talked about how they develop those guys on the defense aside but they're fun four plus their secondary this going with them Ryan Clark you have to pick one while I was brought here for one reason in one reason only when the Knicks because everyone knew it my answers it would be and what Tim Hasselbeck has proven is. You don't need a quarterback. That's really he's GonNa be Ohio state in Alabama that don't have quarterbacks guess what we don't need a quarterback back and by the way you don't want our first off was good enough for Bill Belichick your boy to draft him as Tom Brady's heir-apparent draft. We thought they they went to L._S._U.. Because this guy has what they decided to we throwing the ball all around the field Andrew Whitworth he's played a thousand years. There's a Guy Jerry go look at the Neil hundred may has like negative two percent body fat Michael Broncos out. There aren't key. We gotta wait on them but it's are you at the back of position. That's all we got mad. I gotTa get here all even have to work conviction when you spoke scissors. I'm sorry I just so tim. I love your twenty. Two question your toughness Whoa West I've seen because as you know what fair enough he's at Alabama alum landon dare you wait into the circus that we've created. But what do you have to say about this. Whole debate ain't Ryan got some good good good stuff going on say? I wouldn't question his toughness at all. I don't know why you questioned Ryan toughness. I saw him not got a lot of Alabama's always number one no matter Corolla tyrod. Let me ask you a serious question. You know obviously nick. Sabin is a hall of Famer one of the best ever coach this game but specifically what does he do that has allowed such historic success at the university. Steve Alabama <hes> as a coach he speaks for as a coach. He represents his players as players coach. I would say he makes all this coach. All the players are on the him as a player as a father <hes> <hes> and as a as many tried to teach us they'd be a man and a great play all at one time you know so he does it all leading. Can you please tell the people why you are now better that you have trusted your career training with the guy from L._S._U.. Hey right you agreed trying to grow been gone on gone for years strong see and a he even said you know what why what does this the even knew. He seems like there's a lot of hate. No Hey welcome back to this N._F._l.. You addition of N._F._l.. Our analytics groups that out to find the best school for each position since nineteen ninety eight and what better place to start then with defensive backs. Here's the criteria get included first team all conference awards consensus all Americans selections N._F._l.. Draft Position Asian and then of course N._F._l.. Production you could find the complete rankings in an E._S._p._N.. Dot Com article athletes position you and with that we start with the d-backs all right. We're GONNA look at the top three. According to all of our criteria and Louis Riddick is going to take us through number three we're going to one is Alabama Alabama. Look this is really safety heavy which is near and dear to my heart and I'm sure Ryan's as well like Landon Collins. It's Patrick Eddie Jackson Roman Harper here. You have some this absolute hammers when you start with Landon Collins who likes to play down around the box very physical very productive at Alabama just signed the contract with the Washington redskins. He's about as good as it gets MINKAH FITZPATRICK DOWN IN MIAMI. They need the bigger what to do with this young man. This is a guy who's kind of Swiss army knife you could play corner can play safety could play nickel dime any Jackson's all pro Roman Harper. He's old school man tough of tough football player. I've promised Landon Collins it would be back and indeed he is landed. I know this list is near dare to your heart. What do you think when you see all those names all from Alabama together in one group A we need to be on one team? They get housing and do that. Hey we got at least we we all over the field. Not is all of this House Safety Group we do on thing. I'll tell you that much but I don't know why why we number three. Let me ask you this. What would happen if you were all on one team together? It was all on one team like you say mix biscuit with Patrick you can play a load of fuel mean Eddie Jack the Free Omaha can be right over there just seventy what each other because we've got to keep the guys I gotta do that right here right. Listen to fairness you do you do have I have Alabama eight on the Redskins team as it is so in fact he do play together in some regards Lewis number two Linden number two. We're GONNA have L._S._U.. Hit You. You've got you got. You got a nice nice mix players here to let me just say it real quick. Look Patrick is one of the best of your Tyron Matthew. He's a six tool player. He played six physicians in the secondary. Whatever ever he gets resonated this guy right here? In all seriousness I will say look. I walked working in Washington. When Ryan was there? I remember Ryan's I workout with the Washington. Redskins folks tell you about what happens okay but I will say in this guy right here pound for pound. He's an absolute hammer simple as that this guy right here. He's the new breed. He's the new way he's going to be an all pro for a long time tomorrow at these are good player. Join US again right this this right here. This is why you're number three. It's not a voucher Alabama. You guys have great defensive base but the whole thing of DB you started when L._S._U.. Started putting these guys out at the time I was Kinda grandfather the group but we yeah welcome you we now except you you're from Louisiana trae Louisiana we now except you back into the fold. You can now be two and a half. You don't have to be sent me. You gotTA accept me regardless because I'm from Louisiana and I Alabama took my talents to Alabama and won championships over there sorry l._S._U.. Hey every remember where your mom wanted you to go in fact that worked out number one. Nobody's going to be happy here. At least he's not either of you to go again this. This is another real good group. That actually has a bunch of real good corners onto here. Look Malcolm Jenkins was a corner at Ohio state who now can play safety. He's kind of Tyron Matthew Right. He can do everything on Lattimore. Just fantastic athlete one of the best cover guys the N._F._l.. Denzel Ward talk about pound for pound position keeps having a tough guys in this kid is tough her coleman he was in Philadelphia when I was working for the Eagles not the greatest athlete or one of the smartest football player I tell you this current Coleman had Ryan Clark Smart. He's that Kinda Guy. He's not that Kinda hitter but this this is a great group right here tremendous athlete you can play on the I got to watch denzil war practice for two days. He has that stuff. You can't seem kind of stuff that when you look at the film it pops out one hand catches extreme speed. He's going to be starting this league for a long time Sir I would you call it. Ryan Clark smarts yeah he was Lewis. That's huge. I know he's a smart football made a joke today. He's given mu credit or not but in fact there's an interesting creature habits the flat plains of many an automobile dashboard the bubble added its most agreeable and will not along to anything despite having no brain function but when the bottle of had here's how Geico not only saves people money but also gives you access to the licensed agents twenty four seven online and over the phone deal not even more vigorously because he knows you should switch because yes switching to Geico is a no brainer easy publ at easy. You can get whiplash the Ohio State University. The Ohio state be allows. The University House is the best like our stop throws a me as a apple. You'll see someone from Ohio state making life catch Bait in the end zone Michael touchdown. He's got forty to make plays help organizations win. This fans best damn banned in the land where it's a special edition of N._F._l.. Live N._F._l.. You and earlier we looked at the best college players players on an F. L. teams and now we're looking old time. Lewis is final four schools for producing N._F._l.. Talent on one side of the bracket we have Ohio state on the other. It's Miami. Let's start with the Buckeyes and here's a quick took. Their resume Ohio state has had sixty eight first round picks in the common draft era second most of any school since nineteen sixty seven ten former buckeyes or in the hall of fame. That's the third most of any institution in-includes Orlando Orlando Pace who was recently inducted in two thousand sixteen and count them forty one buckeye players in the common drafts era have been selected to a pro bowl five made it last season including Ezekiel Elliott and Cameron Hayward so the all Ohio state team. These guys don't have to be playing currently in the N._F._l.. And a lot of them have moved on to second careers but this is what it looks like offense and defense football fanatic and football junk. It just doesn't get any better better than seeing all these names on one board regardless of school but since we're talking about Ohio state look look at the wide receiver group here police Chris Carter Joey Galloway Look. I played against Joey Galloway. He's one of these one of those type of guys I just unbuckled chinstrap trying to chase him walk to the sidelines like once a kickoff. Go back out there because this guy is that fast he was as good as it gets ricky deadly fine fine athlete find talent titan out there when he played for the Oakland Raiders in this look at the book ends that they have here has offense the line between Orlando Pace and Jim Shea with nick mangled in the middle. That's very very good football team on the defensive side of the ball but you moved to the secondary quickly for me with this football team Jack Tatum was was the most feared hitter in the history of the N._F._l.. The the most feared hitter in the history of the N._F._l.. Dick Lebeau Sean Springs Chris Spielman look at these names Joey Bosa Cam Hayward. You could line this team up against anybody. I Q the Miami resume if you will it's none too shabby Javale for sure former players have been picked in the first round of the common draft era including Vinny Testaverde. You heard of Heaven Russell Maryland eight former hurricanes have been elected to the hall of Fame Ray Lewis in two thousand eighteen Ed Reed will be inducted next next weekend and no school had more pro bowlers in the common draft era that Miami four players made it from two thousand four alone including Sean Taylor and our own Jonathan Vilma Lewis this team famous stacked. I mean from top to bottom. Look the quarterback Jim Kelly Edgerrin James Franco okay I think we could win with those guys Michael Irvin and Andre Johnson Jeremy shockey but the offensive line is. Maybe we're going to have some debate about whether or not it's going to stack up against some of the other schools that we're GONNA see here. We really pair this thing down but those first group that quarterbacks wide receivers is good. It's on defense. This is just sick. Warren Sapp Cortez Kennedy bits rule for collapsed Campbell. I think you'll win. Some Games there. You may be arguably had maybe some people would say one of the greatest linebackers if not the greatest linebacker an all time in Ray Lewis. John Vilma scouted him work with him. Don was about a smart and as well rounded of a linebackers his game has ever seen and in the secondary we already know this kid right here was the standard will remain the standard essential role Philip Buchanan ed re. I mean had read I mean he's the ultimate thief the ultimate thief in history I sit here and just keep talking back and forth about these guys forever settling there. We beat Ohio State University right but listen. We have somebody else who seems seems inappropriate time to welcome in Miami head coach Mandy as coach. A lot of people thought ten Hasselbeck how to make over but no grew here looking zip listen. We're glad to have you when you look at these guys. Dare we ask you to weigh in here and talk about tradition yeah group that has produced at the next level the coach him. He'd be a pretty good better coach but I mean to me look a lot of schools have great players but you're talking about goats on that board right. There and I know that that term gets thrown out a lot when you're talking about best ever do it. You talk about a Ray Lewis. Don't want the best ever. Do you talk about a Shawntel like you. Were mentioning Ed read. These are the people who changed the way that the game has been played and I'll tell you the real thing and Jonathan noses the people that are mad that they're not on this list the too deep number twelve hundred twenty two on both sides because it'll be a lot of her feelings now because there are some big big time names that left off that list as well well I coach Luis at some point is it's a bracket right so when you have a bracket somebody has to advance. He's going to choose between these two. What before ask you to choose? I don't even think I should we. We know where you'll end there but <hes> what do you think when you look at Ohio state really have some outstanding players there as well. Here's the same say the electric off the hook personalities to you what was to me obviously is the secondary coach talk about the goat. There are awesome players that you put in a conversation of being degraded that ever played the position and when you can say that about one school right when you look at the quarterbacks you mentioned Vinny Testaverde and those who were drafted. He's not the quarterback on his team because Jim Kelly is I think when you start to talk about people who changed the game warrants out right it went from you looking from the big logo that plugged the holes to a guy that can get a bill and get to the quarterback and so many of these players for Miami changed game is not in any way to say because my favorite one of my favorite people of all time Dick lable and he would tell us every time every meeting how many interceptions he was a greater man in a greater coach but for me to have to go the other way means that the people on this side of the board the Miami the team gene is is different is just a different collection of players had I was you know what really Kinda hits me as you look at. These is that on lined up against so many of these guys in played against them and you knew they were good then. You just didn't realize these guys were making imprints imprint on history in as many just pointed out seriously you're right goat is thrown around too much. There are guys here who I mean you. Tell me in the history of football with warrants that being being the conversation being one of the best tiffany's ever the report on Taylor being the conversation be the best safety ever of course he would mike or one of the best part receivers ever of course he and this is this one school now head Hendrix I mean listen to this guy was like I mean he was way ahead of his time when he played for the rate is about the people who are on there is actually what even sells it more than Russell Maryland Brown Damn Morgan list goes on and on that you can talk about all these other guys vinny testaverde a quarterback. We didn't even mentioned ports right when you tell them we had guys Jonathan. Obviously you had incredible career of your oh but how much private there to have played with a lot of guys against with them practice that to come from. The same place when you look at that list man I tell you what the I'll never forget my first practice against I had D._J.. Williams that was there with me. A linebacker and I went against Adrian James I went against porous and practice and I remember my first phone. Call don't act practice. I called my dad and my dad was like so. How'd it go now's I I don't know how about one ninety soaking wet and I remember my dad? Say just keep going. Don't worry about it's okay. I was like big fad. Well let me ask you this on a serious note. What's the biggest challenge returning now and getting ready for your first season two program where where much is expected acted because much has been accomplished getting our guys to play that standard and understanding how it happened those guys were on that board and they have all set at any opportunity of had a chance to talk to our team? There are there because of their work and the way because what's amazing that board. You're talking about the eighties on now. We don't have the history of going back to some of the names on the House state I think other than Hendricks and auto everyone on that board is eighty one and more recently and a lot of those guys like Jonathan said God each other better on green tree practice field and that level of competition and then when guys left and holding the other guys that same standard. That's what makes Miami a little bit unique a little bit different. I want our guys feel that I want them to feel that standard number of these players come back and talk to your current team we do. We do all the time and because they get recruited there. They wanted when they're getting recruited. I want them to feel at one there there. You don't just pick the school because of Jonathan Vilma now. You've got to hear from them because if you're not performing I can tell you but it's a lot better when it comes from a guy like him. It sure all right Lewis you drew the short Straw. You GotTa Pick Yeah. I think this one this one for me is easy to do is state but Miami wins this this too many good football players there one hundred twenty two on both sides of the ball only area where if you wanted to cast any stones on Miami would be off into line this because then you're you're not talking about those guys in the greatest of all conversation and that's the only reason well okay rest of this good the rest of the breath you're right. I mean it's drome Rome Brown around on that and Morgan I remember scouting them Morgan and saying this Dan Morgan hadn't got hurt and Carolina. Dan Morgan was Lewke before their Buki clubs and he may have been better because he was a hammer and could run the guy seemed like he he was in the huddle of the other team every snap because they had why is he always at this point of attack every single time now. He's a fine scouting maybe G._M.. Someday as a great that's a great university. We've got to more to go through and then ultimately will crown a winner but coachee say thank Q.. I know it's about to be a very busy time for you. So we appreciate you being here here. It's quick also come and quick training camp the reigning N._F._l.. M._V._p.. That would be Patrick Mahomes back at work today. The chiefs welcomed their rookies and their quarterbacks camp veterans are expected to report on Friday here step Darlington with more from Saint Joseph Missouri Wendy. It's funny for all the off-season attention that Patrick Mahomes has had these recent months he has made it very very clear in the past several days that he's ready for football just last week he met on a local field with all of his cheese veteran wide receivers throwing passes to them on that field and now reporting with the rookies today he'll throw to the rookies the next two days Friday off and then N._B._A.. On the practice field with the veterans on Saturday mahomes this week it'll be like workout but he will at least get the chance to work out with second round. Pick Nicole Hardman Hartman at one point viewed as a replacement for tyreek Hill when the team thought that he might be suspended ended now the pressure off Hartman but still another weapon from a homes heading into what should be very exciting twenty nine hundred season back to n._F._l.. A special edition of N._F._l.. Lively with a one hundred anniversary of the National Football League and as we told you earlier our analytics out find the best school for each position since nineteen ninety eight and it's time for the quarterbacks. That's the B._C._S. era by the way the criteria included first team all conference awards consensus all American selections N._F._l.. Draft position and N._F._l.. Production and you can find the complete list and rankings in an E._S._p._N.. Dot Com article called position you this time though we got our friend. Tim has a wick here to go through Acerbic Gouvia. Now I want to say but they said No. You were back but that's fine. Take us through the five schools here these to the five here we go number five Florida State seminoles. Let's look at this group Tim. I mean this is pretty good. Jameis Winston Christian Ponder Chris Frankie J manual. What's interesting about this? You know what all these guys came into the League in particular Jameis Winston with a lot of fanfare a lot of hope a lot of expectations. There's probably going to be some people who say some of these other guys the other three were probably ugly overdrafted but it's interesting right here polite way through this is what James can kind of really maybe even push this group a little bit higher if he can this this year it's three first rounders. I mean unware whether they should have been drafted. They're not the fact is regards. Jeff in the first round obviously very does not matter what does think in the criteria the N._F._l.. Production I think as much the path to the N._F._l.. Almost as anything else the type of disagree fire fire all right. Let's go tell by the Texas longhorns McCoy Vince Young Chris Simms. This is a group. This is interesting to hear none of these guys really I mean two of them really struggled. I'll go in the N._F._l.. McCoy is going to be one of those guys. You know. He's a solid backup. He's not a franchise type of player. I bet around bids young tremendous tremendous athlete Chris Simms. You know pretty unheralded career down there in Tampa Bay. This is the top this it's tough to really get fired up quite honestly about this group right is and what's interesting about so many guys that come from the state of Texas. I mean just ahead you start. Thinking about drew brees you start thinking about <hes> Nick foles guys like that. which is a whole nother conversation now all of a sudden like we're not talking about them coming from there which is interesting i? I'm a little bit surprised that they're. They're another guys that we're talking about on this list from the University of that. That's right I agree. I agree all right number three. We're looking at Oregon Oregon Marcus Mariota Joey Harrington Achilles Smith again. This is another group where Marcus can really change the complexion of this entire group if again just like James Do for Florida state if he can have this year be one of his best years if not his very. That's your proved that he's adorable proved that he's the long-term answer there in Tennessee because look Joey Harrington his career was not with the Detroit Lions and Matt Millen expected to be although some people will debate about how even arrived to be their draft choice in who was responsible for him in Achilles Smith Smith. We talked about all the time of quarterback Tim. It's about where you go about as much as it is at your own ability some of quarterbacks that were drafted by the Cincinnati bengals could not have gone the worst situation you look at this I mean A._J.. feely who organ quarterback WHO's not on this list really probably had a better career enjoy Harrington and Achilles Smith and Marcus can change the kind of the complexion of this quite. A bit in Oregon has a quarterback next year that will be kind of just you're watching all right and then this wind up now I it starts getting pretty interesting day because Taylor Murray by all accounts right now although he hasn't played dwayne Heston's hasn't played he seems to be according to reports way ahead a what you would expect the rookie quarterback and that's because of again the situation we talked about Achilles Smith going to a that's. It's wasted. Maybe he went to the perfect. One Baker Mayfield you couldn't have had a better rookie season than what he had expected it to be that way given his entire makeup Sam Bradford look in the Scott and community. There are some people who still believe Sam Bradford would be healthy. He could actually be a top five past. People will never give up on his ability. Although it's been durability that is still just about a year that route wrong about that you talk to quarterback especially the guys that were around him early in his career is just kind of marveled at just a how good he it was just athleticism throwing the ball <hes> kind of intelligence all of those things for present. This is an interesting one where there aren't a ton of guys. Obviously there are other guys you know from. I mean dodge Hypo could have been you know guy. That's on this list obviously in the N._F._l.. Notwithstanding but they're also other guys from Oklahoma and then part of I'll tell you what these two youngsters right here totally catapult them. Maybe it's a number one now when you look here okay this is against Houston Group A very interesting group. Okay let me start here Carson Palmer a couple years ago was legit M._v._p.. Candidate and then he got absolute stuff and beat out of his last year's in Arizona and really his career ads Sam Darnold is the future played one year but he's a future by all accounts. Many people believe it could be one of the best quarterbacks that organization has ever seen now ironically blonde back to that same death football team Mark Sanchez. I remember Mark Sanchez for one gay and that's in the Rosebowl. I believe against Penn state other than that w what he did his career I don't I don't really know and then this Guy Matt liner. He's fantastic for Pete Carroll fantastic but in the froze very nondescript career so this is a quarterback is a tough physician man. It is actually what it says you just how tough it is the play this position gets the situation. The wind up realizing potential. I will say this to their also in terms of probably how he ends up in one here hey guys like cody Kessler you think of somebody like Matt Cassel John David Budi. I mean you know there's three other guys that you could put on this screen. They talk about the past. You're talking volume of this kind of the point. I was making about Texas as well not having volume that being surprising S._C.. There's you can't argue the fact that the guys are putting really a castle probably they should he deserved it should be but let me ask you this. Since we're talking volume what's interesting. Is that what was six could be up here. We saw four for so from the other schools. You don't see Brady well. Let's I'd use US look at Michigan Michigan and shed heading jed handing after that and I think part of how they came up with the list as well as kind of your production level and college which for Brady obviously what he's done in different he was battling for jobs. Scotch rise is back at Michigan. I think there's two things that come out one. Obviously the selection criteria is subjective however you want to spice it up in order to come up with this kind of list but number two. I think the bigger picture is this you see just how hard it is to play quarterback and played at a successful or to hit on a quarterback. We're back and it's not just about these guys. It's also about where they went. I'm telling you that that in and of itself is a bigger discussion but look when you look at guys like Achilles Smith with no shot. You know what the bigger Russian N._C.. NC State Seriously Philip Rivers Russell Wilson Mike Glennon Jacoby Perset Ryan Finley. I mean really like world are you. Where are you N._C.? State you first of all Russell Wilson. Probably I'm assuming got got sort of headlines. Sake intimate I I I personally think should be at its state as well but I think they used him. They put him in Wisconsin. Say I gotTa have weapons right. So how about this the top three schools for wide receivers checking at number three Florida State seminoles Best Receiver Stephen The last twenty years Anquan Boldin the were selected to three pro bowls in his career the night most receptions in N._F._l.. History Ohio State. We keep saying that name don't we Ohio state second for wide receiver view and includes. It's players like San Antonio Homes Ted ginn junior and Michael. Thomas Saint Receiver had the most catches by any player in their first three seasons at number one school for receivers though figure matches the number one school for quarterbacks back. She was the Trojans two players with thousand yard seasons in the N._F._l.. Last season Robert Woods and Juju Smith Schuster takes over as the steelers number one this season which current N._F._l.. Players have the most players from the same college eight Alabama players on the redskins including Landon Collins and Jon Allen while the browns have eight players from Miami four different schools have six players on the same N._F._l.. Team in Alabama at Ohio state that has produced a ton of felt allen including the defending national champion Clemson Tigers Ten clemson players have been picked in the first round since two thousand thirteen and that includes Kristen Wilkins who joins us now Christian come on but these place oh yeah that's right. You know Clemson Yeah. We've been doing big things the last year so hopefully we can keep the ball for many years to come you. You have been doing big things for the last year's at Davos weenies a big part of that. How is he set the tone and instituted a culture a- death valley while yeah well first of all course when he's a great guy and you know just the his beliefs his just how he carries themselves definitely fosters down all the way to the players you know since he's taken over ten eleven years ago now you know the players really bought in his beliefs and just how you know his his picture? What a good program so look and you know we've dissolved biting into it? <hes> you know those guys went back in you know when you first started about in you know just possibly culture. I mean you know it's still in effect now because his day guys like it myself and other guys you know I've tried to take it to another level person. This is Ryan Clark List. We've had a lot of Bama a lot of Ohio state. I man throw in a bit of L._S._U.. Just a little bit of show you did once you can you. Can you make the case for the other tigers. The other team in Death Valley told me why Clemson should be higher on our list of best programs while we're really just to say well if you look at. The recent history I know we don't have made their long jeopardy. I mean you know may not be there like you know place Lago House then Alabama where there's decades up success but I felt like still though you know Clemson's had a lot of great guys you know you look all the way back. <hes> you know Brian undockings all the way back way back then he's Clemson guy you know there's a lot of other names and great players who <hes> Dwight Clark who've been to Clemson <hes> you know who who who has a lot of success for like we're just underrated in that sense <hes> so oh quite clemson's look kind of like the newer upcoming <hes> you know in terms of longevity but I like we've always been there and always could be in the conversation <hes> but I really also just now especially what we've been doing has been great to a national championships in the US for years. Three three appearances multiple choice round picks on his guys all over the League now having success in the N._F._l.. Implant at the highest level so I think you know Clemson's always right up. There definitely not conversation Chrissy. We appreciate you joining us and I think you're right if you're looking at the last five years or so it's hard to leave Clemson Outta that group. There's no question best of luck this season. We'll be watching or thank you so much. Go Tigers wow half of Louis final four bracket has been filled out with Miami advancing pass Ohio state now. It's time to look at the other two on the other side. That's Alabama and U._F._C.. We will crowd a winner by the way you're is the resume for the Crimson tide fifty four Alabama Alabama players. I have been fixed in the first round. The common draft era including twenty nine first round pick since Oh wait that's the most from any school there are eight out of the players in the hall of fame headlined by Three quarterback Bart Star Joe Nemeth up and most recently can stable and as we highlighted at the top of the show. No college has more players on current N._F._l.. Rosters than these sixty five wow Alabama and so here we are the all Alabama team offense offense and defense and we can't argue this group doesn't have a quarterback that's for sure no and the other two that aren't here Bart Starr intense stabler. I mean those are pretty darn. Good quarterback so yeah they've kind of like sewed up that position now and this is really just a star-studded star studded historic roster as the name suggested is look at this. Maybe the greatest offense alignment in some people's eyes of all time in John Hannah Ozzie newsome. Maybe the greatest tight end of all time Chris Samuels one of the most athletic offensive Lineman of all time demos with him when he was with the Washington redskins now defensive side of the football this look at some of these names here Korea's Bennett one of the best combination outside linebacker pass rushers but this game has ever seen Derrick Thomas he was the standard for the long for the longest time as far as designated pass rushers played all three downs but this guy when you needed to sack on third down he was the standard and so this is this. Is this a loaded football team a lot of history here a good blend of old versus new and some guys who are in the conversation for conversations all right. Let's look at the challenge of shall we hear Salva trojans stack up seventy first rounders from U._S._C. The most in the common draft era from any school twelve U._S._C. Players are in hall of fame among them Marcus Allen Lynn Swann Ronnie Lott and junior CEO over three hundred forty three former trojans have been picked in the common draft era the most of any school and that includes five number one picks most recently Carson Palmer in two thousand three those yeah similar to the all-time Miami team. This team is sick sick. I mean look look look at this office. This is start here. I mean look at the running back and look the name that the left off here a guy like Charles White who was one of the Great U._S._C. Trojans of all time wide receivers lintz wanted me. This is get better at him. keyshawn dolphins in line with this group makes its mark on offense. Look at this offensive line. Anthony Muna's goes ron mixed with Massey's Tony Boselli Ron Carey. You can run you can lineup in the wing tea. You can run up the wishbone run the football all day long by those guys whether it be back in their day or in today's game defense aside quickly you moved to the second level in the third level defense not to say that these guys are not good because they are not play with their Russell. God Wrestle. One of the best athletes is game has ever seen left as far too soon but when you look at the rest of this group junior CEO let us far too soon one of the dynamic dynamic defensive play makers the game has ever seen played with Klay Matthews in Cleveland one of the best pros of all time and then the secondary my good Ronnie Lott Ryan can speak eloquently really about forty blue Willie Wood Tim McDonald. You don't even have Dennis Smith on here who was a teammate of Ronnie Lott in those days with U._C.. This team right here. This is about as good as it gets. If you're a football historian your college football historian your N._F._l.. Historian that is a good group since we foreshadowed Ryan's eloquence I think I think you should you should wait and you're going to speak eloquently. I'm surprised I got that out those very eloquent view. Thank you <hes> what say even listen. I'm not a guy who majors in thinking of offensive Lineman but when you look at these office of Linemen and the dominance that these guys showed not only at U._S._C. but in the league over the best of the best. I think it's amazing so you go O._J.. Simpson Marcus Allen Lynn Swann and defensively the secondary they would hit you. They could pick the ball they could rush the passer. They could do everything you wanted to do. From a secondary perspective and you know we we we bring up Alabama. You look at some of these names. There are some guys on this side all time greats I mean Derrick Thomas. He set the standard for the way that you get after an rush the passer but on the other side of this the speed the aggressiveness of this U._S._C. Debates. I think that that would be the team. I would take over this Stack Alabama. I mean look I agree U._S.'s offense in terms of just hall of Famer like one two three four five six just run down the list. You like all fame him loose surprised at Carson Palmer ends up being starting quarterback. He was very good called flare obviously tremendous pro-career but by comparison you know Joe Nemeth on the other side talk to me. I'm going U._S._C.. The offensive line running backs US look at like the difference makers on the defensive side of the ball like Ronnie Lott enjoy palmolive safeties and another Ronnie Lott flights and Warner won like so so you even have Dennis Smith we put Dennis Smith on his running with Ronnie Lott that group Twelve Hall of famers wouldn't move the ball against this team. The truth to is like sometimes like some guys look the part you know so. I like you want that guy to be the first Guy Boston team but both of these teams are just loaded with like you have that guy get off the bus I mean because they look me part and they've been Chris as you referenced him and his athleticism. He's as the first dude you WANNA get off the bus really McGuinness. I mean off the road. I roll up. Do we realize how good athlete a guy like you talking about Willie mcginest but how good of an athlete a guy like junior sale right I mean when he when he came out of high school we came in high school. At the same time. Junior made the parade all American teams just as an athlete didn't even giving them a position yeah yeah you're yes. He was one of the great human I mean. It's it's it's fun looking at these names and just seeing how history rich college football well. This is all true but you've got to pick it well. We're down to two schools on Lewis is all timeless producing N._F._l.. Talent not saying something Mrs a great group Miami against you as the certainly historically to of college applause powerhouses head to head and here's how the two schools square up with each other U._S._C. has seventy first round draft picks the most in the common draft era Miami the third most with sixty drafted in the first round the trojans also won't be edge in total draft picks but Miami has had forty eight pro bowlers one ahead of U._S._C. again. You WanNa talk about letting cares. I mean this is really the history you're looking at a history of two incredible programs and great great contributors to the National Football League but Louis. We did this so that we would walk away with the winter though we're gonNA. We're GonNa you know just waiting on wait. Wait for you do that just anything from the gallery here. It's been an animated funds today well. Let's this is what I will say. I'm glad Lewis is all resident expert because picking this is going to be extremely difficult and I kinda here or feel where he's going to go and I'm GonNa let him we'll do that. I so I won't get another university. Just hates me. Wait you WANNA talk after Lewis names you talked before you want me to do my fish or just choose what we can choose one Louis to Miami because I think when you look at Miami and his oppressive is this team is and I know that you guys talked about it when Manny Diaz is on the show and John Still here the reality is like the guys were leaving off on Miami. You know look at Reggie Wings Santana moth so not on this list <hes> you look at <hes> Greg Olsen not on the list as tight end vinny testaverde not on the list you think of the running back like Clinton Florida's Willis mcgahee not on list and Morgan on that side of the ball. Wayne Starts Dr something just a number of guys that that didn't make this list. I think what really separates them from the U._S._C. U._S._C. team well. I only want it fish. I should've told you but we evaluate your so eager the last segment I had to get it out you understand the we're waiting man backup there or not know all right. That's cool reason why okay thank thank you. Thank you thank you. I think actually I think I actually referred to Klay Matthys as the guy played with play-by-play mattress third with his dad anyway anyway. You could've played <music>. I'm going to go as much as I love this this football team and I'll tell you what everyone knows. I'm a personal standpoint what I would pick his team simply because of that guy right there where I'm going to pick U._S._C. and I'm GonNa tell you why apply principles that applied back in the seventies eighties ninety apply today if you can dominate the trenches especially with your offensive line you win football games eventually over the course of sixty minutes. You can win a football game this offense align fine. I don't care who you put in front of them. This offense the line right here is riddled with goats some of the best that you'll ever see play the game and I think in the end if you're actually going to play football game that's where I would hang my hat. I know Miami Secondary. Is this ridiculously good. Skill players are ridiculously good. Every both of these teams haven't but I think this offense align is significantly better than Miami's. What about Miami's defensive line at the block and as ah I remember when you look at Denver's offensive line a little still going to see here's here's what Lewis here's what Lewis Tim that you say okay okay if we take the universities do and give them all that they have not just the top twenty two and we can get backups and now we run guys into the game? Maryland is running into rally okay. That's what I'm saying. I'm like that's a different look. The Lewis is looking at the twenty two guys on the board looking at who those guys from U._S._C. would have the block and in that looking at that way I would pick them as well. You know what if you earn Russell Maryland and I'm going to run the truth is the truth is in the mall. What's guys say about all time teams whether it's an all time team whether it's a team that is playing currently it does not matter it's L._S._U.? We can't even talk about it. Do you see the new facilities. Do you see the way we all this time facility discussed now. Can You signify town notify. You don't know your own. Why would I know to fight fight song? I was was owner failure we saw day. You can't sing this not even the I like you to do that. Key breakdown again key breakdown one more time well. You know what I have with any these town Brady's era Perry report. There's Tom Brady in any no guy the new. Did you know what and then I'll tell you this. I'll tell you this panther nation hit Panther nation. We didn't put up L. Pits all-time team. I'll tell you look at pits best twenty to put him against anybody really the best twenty two. Would you like to put him against against Boston. College is all about country goes out there pretty good. He goes Larry Fitzgerald Others Boyd some wrong with I'm asking you just got. He just got money hometown prize wellness. I want you to learn the fight between next time you all these supposedly my friend. I am but look comedy. Let's Change Subject College football.

Thank you so much for hanging out again couple of questions for you. Casey pee on Lonzo. He basically said that Lonzo needs to be more aggressive after the game yesterday that he needs to you know, basically what we've all been talking about. Which is we need to see some consistency out of him. Because he said, quote, he is the head of the snake. The when he goes, we go so at some point Bill Parcells used to have this great that line where he would say if he doesn't bite as a puppy. He's probably never gonna bite like how long how much longer. Do. We look at Lonzo Brandon and say to themselves and say to ourselves like how much can you wait for their consistency to develop great question in the problem? George nowadays is that these guys are so young like Lonzo junior. UCLA Ingram should still be in college. And you can't wait for these guys. You know, the way you used to be able to you know, when when Bill Walton came into the league, we're Lew Alcindor came into the league, he's had, you know, multiple years of UCLA experience. The now you can't. So I mean, there's there Yoenis when he started you saw him to look like a deer that was just born learning to walk, and he was all over the place and every once in a while you get a guy like Chauncey Billips who blooms late who after four or five years in the league then hits. But most of the time you can tell within two to three years what you've got. So this is your two for Lonzo year three for Ingram. I think that's a very fair question to ask. And I think that's why part of the season is an audition. What do you think the answer to that question is is it too early to give up on those guys? Probably. Yeah. I think that this is it I think that you know, they're going to get their opportunity. This is the audition year if it works. Cool if it doesn't work then sorry, you're going to end up getting dealt somewhere else. And they're going to bring in players that fit better. You know, the roster construction Johnny something you, and I've talked about like it wasn't ideal. It was going to be a bit challenging at times. And you see it. Now, why certain LeBron teams have been built the way they've been built in the past you surround him with guys who can shoot. And it maximizes everything that he does on the floor. And I think that the Lakers made a bit of a mistake there by not bringing in more guys who were capable of shooting. Even if it was just one guy that you know, you can count on to be thirty eight thirty nine forty percent consistently. And that you couldn't you couldn't leave him. Right. And and part of the reason the team wasn't built that way. So now all of a sudden the Lakers are twenty seven three point shooting. And they made me to re if they're going to go back to that way. What you're talking about? What the Brian teams have always been like in the past. Maybe they do go. Look at Bradley Beal, a guy who's dead eye shooter from the outside. But I think what they wanna do is try and land at nother like elite player another guy that, you know, they want what the warriors have they wanna Durant Steph curry kind of competition, but Durant and Steph do it from the outside, you know, the Brian at this point can do from from anywhere. But you know, if you go after one of these elite wings, which is what the league is kind of all about. Now, he's not necessarily the best shooter. It's it's a really hard question to answer and Robin magic have to decide can we continue to feel the team without an elite shooter. And I don't know if I if you can answer yesterday. Yeah. I think in today's NBA it's too hard to do that last thing before I let you go. The Rams what is the thing that concerns you the most heading into Sunday, Michael Thomas? I don't understand how he could light up the Rams in week nine. What do you have twelve or thirteen catches right up? The eagles again yesterday. He leads the NFL in receptions, George, and even though we know he's going to catch a bunch of passes. You can't stop them. And so they've obviously figured out a way to get him the ball and get him the ball in spots where he can't be defended. So I'm obviously ramps fan. I'm hoping that it keep to lead is going to be a little more successful than Marcus Peters was. But can you explain to me how the eagles are, you know, they're the defending Super Bowl champions? They know how good he is. And what did he catch thirteen path? Yeah. Yeah. I mean, that's crazy. So he can surging an Alvin Kamara had a very pedestrian day. It's seventy one yards rushing. He didn't score a touchdown when the ransom and the first time we couldn't keep them out of the end zone. So those if you will allow me to things I'm worried about one is is how do you stop Michael Thomas, and to I'm worried about Kamara going off having said that I feel great about the Rams Jason. He's nervous as hell. I told Mason I think his team's going Super Bowl. I think the Rams are playing playing better right now than the saints. Are the Rams have played good three weeks in a row that performance against Dallas kind of came out of nowhere. They stopped Zeki Elliott. They had two rushers go over one hundred yards. Mcvay seems to be at the height of his powers. I think the Rams have great chance on Sunday when comfortably because you know, the the saints run defense has been hindered. Now is Sheldon rankings out with an achilles. I know they have a rotation. But yet they have two guys. That they rotate into that spot. But the third guy who never plays is going to have to play there. So they're not going to be able to play every snap with the backup. I actually think the Rams are gonna be able to control the clock and run the ball. So I'm with you. I'm not really that concerned as concerned as maybe some people about that game. Are you concerned about Netflix raising their prices Ireland? Is there a breaking point in the Ireland household on Netflix prices? They're not only not a breaking point on Netflix. Thirteen ninety nine. Yes. Thirteen ninety nine is the cheapest one now. Yeah. Okay. I be willing to go to fifty bucks. Wow. Or netflix. That's how much I watch. And here's an and by the way, for Amazon I'd be willing to go three times that. Yeah. I mean, well because they deliver everything till you. Yeah. For sure right. So I'm I'm a sucker they, but they're going to continue both Amazon, and Netflix and continue to see what they can get away with. If I you know, I I belong to a gym. And they used to charge us. Fifteen bucks a month for. The locker. Out of the out of the blue. They sent out. They starting to dozen nineteen or turning forty five dollars for locker every everybody gave up their lives. Said screw it. I'm not doing. So we'll see if the thirteen ninety nine is is the, but I think most people are going to pay it, don't you? Yeah. For sure, and I actually told Mason that all the streaming stuff. Like all the add on like, if you if you have Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon, and then you gotta pay fifty bucks a month for internet. You've basically got the cable the same price as you're paying for your Gable? Bundle. At this point, the whole thing is a racket. Right. And people are now that we're used to it now that they suck to thin. We'll continue to pay it. Yeah. Not giving up. Pam on not giving Netflix come on. I'm with you, man. Enjoy cluckers. All right, man. Have a good show. All right, man. Thanks joy, Oklahoma City and hopefully get a win. Right. Hope. So. See there's John Ireland with is here. Let me grab some people been holding on patiently Stephen LA. Go ahead. Steve good buddy, and George how you Don Goodman. I wanted to quickly talk about the Luke Walton a scenario and at this point in the season. I don't know if you fire somebody forty five games. And if you don't have somebody in the wings waiting, and what worries me more than that? If you did have like a fan Gundy, kind of pending would be his assistant coaches, and who would step in the interim. Okay, say that again. So firing Luke Walton at this point in the season. You're forty five games in. I don't know who you're going to bring in if you're still in this period. Lebron and that you're going to have an assistant coach step into an interim role. Right. Right. So like Brian Shaw. Right. And to me that's more worrisome because if you look at Luke Steph is effectively Madson Shaw and his college friends, right? And so to me, it's like what what do you expect is going to happen or what's going to change? Oh, no. I don't think. That's why I think they can't fire Luke barring again magic word of something drastic. Because and thank you for the call, Steve because there's just not anyone you could promote internally as you pointed out. They don't sudden a bench that is already thin as far as the system so concerned, and we know Stephen came on and told us how much magic doesn't love the assistant coaches as it is already. I don't think that's the route. He'd take. You know, maybe you get the initial bump of a couple of games because it's change and whatnot. But after that, it's it's like it is what it is. And I don't know if you're going to be able to get like. You know, you're gonna get Mark Jackson in the middle of the season or Jason Kidd or someone like that. Like, I don't see those guys wanting to take that over like that either. Yeah. It's why I don't think they're getting rid of Luke at any point this season at least, and I don't think it's prudent by any stretch of the imagination. Hey, don't forget before the show's over today. So we've got about thirty minutes here. We're gonna give you a chance to win some cool gear from this Paki out Bruner fright. You can win a jacket water bottle and a t shirt and qualified for the grand prize, which is awesome. An autograph boxing glove by both pack yound Boehner and a free code to watch the fight for free. So they have it. So don't go anywhere. Stick around for that. Coming up next. I do wanna get into one of the things that Rams fans are doing in preparation for this game that I think is just a cause as anything we have seen in southern California. This season will do that. We'll take more of your calls so Donald show ESPN LA Saddana show here on ESPN LA. Gotta get to this. Fun. 'cause the Rams fans are pushing four here before the game and his second row. Quick at six thirty one sports fans. What's the game plan tonight with your kids when you get home? Well, here's an idea. Do what we did talking reading singing, it changes everything. How did we do that? We went to I five California dot com, and we learned okay? Those first five years the formative years the brains man, they are functioning very quickly when their newborns. You have no idea. So you gotta get them stimulated as quickly as possible. And as new parents, we didn't know what we were doing. So we learned where did we learn first five, California dot com. You can do the same man. Ain't no shame in it. Talking reading singing, you learn all sorts of stuff there. I five California dot com to learn more. So Bill vukovich, you may not know that name. It is not a household name by any stretch of the imagination Bill. Vintage is the head referee for the NFC championship game. The reason that is a thing is because Rams fans have started an online petition because. Because the Rams are only eight in games that Bill vukovich has been the referee. Conversely, the New Orleans Saints are five and three in those same scenarios when Bill vukovich has been the lead referee. I'm all about it, man. Like, listen, I as a guy who. Covers the NBA a lot. Referee's? Does it think man? And look it isn't like it's not like that in the NFL to do you. Remember the name, Phil Luckett. The NFL referee. He's the guy that on that thanksgiving game between the Steelers and the lions messed up the coin toss do you remember that? And then do he's also the guy there was a game between the Seahawks and jets were Vinny Testaverde is back in the day. When Parcells and Keyshawn and those guys were there. They Vinny Testaverde scored a touchdown. Against the Seahawks. That knocked the Seahawks out of the playoffs and Vinnie actually didn't score the touchdown. And this is pre obviously instant replay. And all that stuff. Vinnie's helmet. Got across the ball. Never got across and Phil Luckett was the referee the had referee on both. So it happens way. More in the NBA in baseball. Like, we all know cowboy Joe west, and you know, you know, back in the NBA Joey Crawford, right. Like, those type of guys Bennett Salvator, but. They are occasionally some guys in the NFL that you will know my thing is why put a referee to hasn't worked a conference championship in a couple of years. They go matter they're going to win. Anyway, that's true. But I don't get that. I don't get that be fair. Be fair Rams has lost eight games at the referees referee, but how many river how many referees? My guess is most referees. Don't referee a conference championship game. Every you, you know, like, probably the different. That's probably a pretty quick turnaround actually twenty sixteen to twenty nineteen because there's there's probably a handful of referees in the league that are considered the top guys. And you know, there's probably a rotation for those kind of gigs. One good thing about this referee is that they allow the players to play the game a little bit more physical. Okay. Another cruise, which is good. I'm good without just good. Yeah. Neat that especially from your defensive backs especially for. Keep leave is going to be going off against a face off against Michael Thomas, so semi. I gotta get in his head. Also, I don't know if it's possible. What do you mean? Oh, no. Oh, no. That is Michael Thomas specialty he'd likes to get another dudes heads. It's why when DeMarco was on earlier he talked about Marcus Peters. Can't fall for the bait because they're going to try to bait him because he as we know Peter's, they know he has a lot going on this as far as the trash talk. Yeah. Yeah. That's him snorting half is like that in football. Yeah. So and the famous what he ran up in the stands and ask the fan. One. He put that on me. I mean, so that's the thing. That's a real thing. Patrick pasadena. Patrick. Hey, George, I, and I appreciate might get me through trying to be real quick when it comes to Luca. I just every day I listened in. And it drives me insane that his job would be even being questioned when you look at experience of what they do right now. Magic in rob verse. Luke, Luke has proven that he can coach in the NBA. He's proven what he can do with talent. He's proven that. He can turn defenses around. He can develop players magic. It Robin shown they got LeBron and they can't couldn't construct the proper team around of you though, you watch him for fifteen seasons now. And then you look at other options, you guys like fit bail out there. He's won ten games with the Knicks. And they were talking about how this guy the next great thing needs to be the Lakers coach wanted to replace. Well, I mean in look and Patrick I'll let you finish. But look all due respect to fizz like that that Knicks teams they're trying to tank like so that's a little different. You know, it's not the same scenario. We agreed. Agreed. But. Take Shaq and Kobe off the two thousand acres is that not similar to taking Rondo LeBron Kuzina for a cover games off this team. And then going why are we winning wombs into the worst teams because we aren't the worst game? When you take them off our our roster. Well, the Lakers are definitely not as good. Look, you know, what the Lakers are the Lakers last season where thirty five win team. Now, they dealt with a lot of injuries to Lonzo and whatnot or whatever, and they had Julius Randle and brook Lopez. So yeah, there are thirty something win team with the team that that they're putting on the floor right now without LeBron and Rondo, yes. Minus Randall and Lopez. Correct. Correct. Yeah. They're they're about a thirty something win team. Thank you, George. I appreciate it. Love the show as always you gotta buddy. That that's the reality of it. That's what they are. You know, there's. You know, there's. Anyone who thinks otherwise like, I just don't know where you're watching like what you expect. You. You must have way more faith in what these kids are capable of at the current moment than the rest of us because look. Potential is there. There's no doubt. Like, you're not drafted that high. Like everybody would have drafted them in that top five ish area. Both those guys. Regardless of what you think of the other guys in the draft. They would've been somewhere in that top part of the lottery. So that means some team was trying to make them their franchise player regardless or one of their franchise players. So yeah, I get the potential part of it. But at some point you have to realize that potential, and that's kind of the thing here. Hey, don't forget dudes brewing company this weekend. Come hang out. I'll be there. In torrance. Watch party on Sunday at noon. Text the words dudes the word dudes to four zero seven zero five that's dudes to four zero seven zero five they got five tasting rooms here in southern California Torrance, which will be out on Sunday Santa Monica, Santa Clarita, Huntington beach and Thousand Oaks, and of course, to order beer from the source.

We'll talk to him about LeBron you Brian had some strong takes by the way on the Lakers today. Well, part of the reality is that LeBron is not really going to be back, really. Even the short term. I don't think he's gonna play Monday among their king day against the warriors. They've got a four game homestand coming up. I think maybe sometime in that home stand, but they are team where they have a very large what I call cone of uncertainty. Typically, you have an idea of what a team ceiling and floor is this team could end up in the six seed and pull off a first-round upset or they could end up tents. Yeah. I mean, he's right. And we'll talk to Brian tomorrow who spend a good chunk of the show with us here on the show. He'll be kind of our one of our guests in studio. So we'll chat with Brian and see where the Lakers cone of uncertainty is tomorrow as they get ready to go to Oklahoma City and take on our nemesis. Tomorrow.

ESPNLA Mornings with Keyshawn, LZ and Travis HR 2

"Pow, boom, booth booth. Fifth breath Zakho Dane. Happy birthday, the great Adam west would have been ninety today. What have ninety years old? Yes. I'm wearing Batman socks right now. So that was just weird. You didn't wear that because of his birthday just wore it because you were just Jesse. That is actually true. Yes. And then I found out it was his birthday, and I realized maybe I'm Batman, maybe. I guess there's always be Robin, no, you can't be my ward. Youthful ward. Adam west would be ninety years. Oh, if he was alive today and he had a birthday is brought to you by land Jaguar, Land Rover, Newport Beach off the Seventy-three towards the sea, visit Land Rover, Newport Beach dot com. Land Rover, above and beyond. They don't even have paper front of me. You gotta. Thanks a lot. Great producer. I was really good the that version of Batman was my introduction to Batman. Every time you saw the other version of Batman, the dark Knight and all the later additions, it's like, well, this isn't what I thought it was the cartoon version. The camp version versions were kinda campy. Yeah, but then then dark. Yeah, then it went sinister. Yeah, then then it got good. Right? Exactly. All right. So the Steelers have not one game. The Steelers are one and one, but they've been. They had a tie to the Cleveland Browns. They lost to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and all of a sudden they've got problems not only Levy on bell. Isn't there? Not only is Terry Bradshaw saying what he's saying. But in Tonio Brown did not come into the facility on Monday. Here's head coach, Mike Tomlin talking about AB. He was not. No, I'm looking forward to visiting with him today and discussing that some other things I'm not going to get into the details of why he wasn't hero, what? Well he was excused in all of those things. Only those things in house. I stand sometimes against him negatively. You know, we lost football game. There was some negative exchanges on the sideline. Frustration of societas would not playing well and that winning understand all that is operatives for us to respond to particularly early forces of the year to utilize negative experiences and things that occur to educate our team disappointing the journey. So it becomes a non factor. We move forward that gentlemen approach that we take in nine football related things such as social media, decorum, etc. So hopefully it'll be last time I'll be discussing things such as that in this that. So that's Mike Tomlin talking. Discussing social media, negative reactions losing wall is that is that was that what I got? No biggie saying just whole AB incident and all the drama being. That's what he's saying. So they're, they're sure feels like there's something to see here. There's a whole bunch of stuff going on there. It got to the point where he had to address it, then Antonio Brown was not excused. Is there something to see. Key. This is your well. If Roz remember and maybe you to Elsie Travis was not acquired quite yet. The Goshi we were in the makings of acquiring him quietly. Working back channels? Yes. If you remember what I said when Todd Haley was let go. Oh, yeah. Because I had him on my fantasy team and you gave me some room news. I kind of knew there was going to be. It was going to be problematic when Todd Haley was fired as their office coordinator, that there would be some issues coming alone within Tonio Brian. I just didn't think that he Tony Brown not Antonio Bryant ex-cowboy that. He would skip out on film meeting all. I didn't know that part. That's frustration as far as exchange on the sideline with the offense coordinator, I could've. I could've filed with Vegas and it was a bad thing on there. I made a billion dollars by now. EM set at all at looking on the other side to his left, and that other receiver that second year man doodoo Smith getting off every game, getting targets, it could be. It could be a little frustrating for guy who thinks that the passing game should go through him. And then all of a sudden you have a second year guy who the office coordinator likes, who's trying to make sure he gets his touches and ignoring Antonio Brown. The offense goes to end Tonio Brown, the pasture, his should always. But what happens any situations is if you don't, if you ever remember me saying, if you don't have an office, a coordinated, understand the individual player that they have and what they're how dynamic player is an individual matchups. This new office coordinator to me seems like he's about skiing. Because guess when he's trying to do, he's trying to get another job. He wants to be, hey coat. He wants the credit. He wants to look at my offense a system. It's great. I'm going to get off him touch. Over here opposed to a guy like Todd Haley who they had who would say that dues bad and you're really good. We getting ready to light his ass up. That guy's bad. You're good. That is. So that's the coordinating situation. And that's why Antonio Brown had what journalists like to call a meltdown on the sidelines decided. Headline thing doesn't matter to me. I don't get the sideline note down on the offense -ociety. It should have been the defense freaking out because he's second year. Quarterback has gone in and through six frigging touchdowns against you. You gave a forty two points to a second year QB and sixty scored thirty seven points, but that's not that's enough to win football game. But that's not sexy. Sexy part is watching an Tonio Brown, right? Check the offense coordinator. Sideline goes on and every single game every single Sunday on every single Denny. The National Football League. Sometimes the cameras catch it is sometimes it cameras don't because Brady screaming on the sidelines will you know. Yeah. Well, you know. Fired up? Yeah, he's fire. He's a fire. He's he's rally headed to guess, competitive the Antonio Brown sideline situation, whatever I'd it doesn't hit me at all, but what does hit me is all of it and we kind of went through yesterday to bell. Still not there. You're talking about Ben Berger have in his issues with the backup quarterback is e. n. or is he Ataman retire? My not every talking about the Tonio Brown missing a day of work. You're talking about a team that hasn't won a game, including having played against Cleveland talking crazy about my tires in Metairie Bradshaw rash. I'm not taking Terri. I'll take some other guys not taking Terry. All of this comes up to a team that is in the playoffs more or less every year contends for Super Bowls regularly far more regularly than most organizations that has no head coach turnover. Typically talking to three guys at fifty years. This is incredibly unsteady like the the amount of noise and smoke that's coming out of that building. There's definitely something there. Well, I think we're seeing is the end of the guard in terms of not just in the NFL just across the board. This is a new generation of athletes and the the way that you go about telling guys what they cannot say even goes down into college rings and you look at some of the comments. Jimmy Hart said about your Alabama when they were making the switch at QB back in the day. Guy's never talked like that. Well, everyone except for t-shirt. Never talk like that. But now guys through social media or just do their own confidence are filling, they can express themselves within the confines of a franchise. And so no, it hasn't been like the Steelers of owed the Terry Bradshaw even the cowards. No, it's not like that. But neither of the athletes, neither are that neither of the access to the law came alone too. Early your head. Could you a minute your fault maybe started in you would like. Don't blame me this. Oh, don't blame me for this because they blame me for the diva wire receiver. Yeah, they blame me for for for tearing up the bucks just don't know more. More Ryan Clark thinks that he's got a reason for why it's not working. They're falling apart. This team isn't what it used to be. Let's just talk about the people in the locker room. Think about leadership. You know, there's no more James Ferrier's. There's no more Hines, Ward's people that put the team. I now, it's a team in a group of individuals. You see that from the Levy on Bill situation where he doesn't show up, but yet there are people in the locker room speaking about his money, talking about his contracts, not supporting him in the sense that this is a game that you have to. You have a very short time to get your money and you're going to speak out against that man. Now you have a wire receiver in Tonio Brown, who was more concerned with south more concerned about his accolades, more concerned about his touches, then a team that is in trouble. Are you with office coordinator, Randy Fichtner and then not showing up on Monday. So Ryan Clark saying it's a lack of leadership that there's nobody in there that's taking control of the situation that everybody's on their veal shot have been Rothlisberger. I wanna say, Idia shot his Tomlin. They're going to say Tom. Not in that, say the locker room coaches don't come in the locker room, right? They don't. They. Deconstruct when somebody says there's problems in the locker room and there's lack of leadership in the locker room that's directed at the players. Didn't you hear him? Say James vary, no, no war. That's the players they don't coach. So the players control their locker room environment when a coaching staff is in disarray. That's the head coach. When a head coach is allowing his coordinators to get into trouble. Things come up off the field on that. That's the head coach. When this problem urban Meyer head coaches issues, not control. Zac Smith has nothing to do with the players in locker room, so I totally get what he's saying. There l. z. being rafters burger where you at man? Yeah, like thirty six years. The locker room. Fifteen years rothlisburger has always seemed to have been separate from his team like the never mind his stuff that Ben Rothlisberger has always felt like he was not. One of them like he's always been separate because of all the things that he's had going on that when he went through all of his issues, the Steelers weren't rallying around what it was more. His accused of sexual assault, which which time exactly which time dancing around. We wanna get sexual assaults. You have multiple incidents. People have accused of sexual assault, and no one was rallying to his defense and always felt like he was on his own did for he was on his own with that. That is for sure. But I would say that when people outside of talking about lack of leadership in the locker room, if you have a thirty six year quarterback, that's been there for fifteen years. That's about you to Super Bowl. Champ two, I was right there are troubles in the streets. Hey, Travis fellas. I'm flying over. I just finished a Gordon south central LA nothing there all the way through the Pomona to sixty freeway back up for two hours at the west. I six. Oh five. In his back up to north gallery, if you're looking to get into downtown LA your sir there. If you're coming from diamond bar, walnut creek area, drive avenue, north ticky word for it. Well, well, well, walnut creek, walnut creek, the northern California. Bet away for the pirates. Your helicopter you might becoming in promoted coming from diamond bar walnut take Abner to the ten freeway going west is my if you're further out, you know, take fifty seven, whereas the pirate booty to the fifty seven to ten west.

You guys second number four? Yeah. Oh, yeah. National pirate day. Oh, that. Who's your favorite? My favorite pirate and Bill Matlock. Basically. Oh, remember Kober. Dave Parker Parker on over. We'll start Long. John silver, who's a real Long, John silver, captain hook member. The restaurant, though Long, John silver, everything was deep fried and taste the same. I fried fish. Captain. Enjoy four Hayes. Yeah. Alcohol hit up a pole. I'm, I'm gonna. Take Jorges. Pick. I'm going captain Morgan. Yeah, that's one of those kind of drinks that you maybe or introduced to drinking with the captain and cope, which you rea- dress later still pretty good. I, I drink too. To promotional deal for captain Morgan, Jason seahorn several years ago. So we had to do it was this whole thing we had to do the captain Morgan polls with the leg up with a leg up. I'm like, they're paying us to do this. It was the people. I mean, it's like I, I didn't realize drink was as popular during very popular and it's it's not terrible. No, no. What do you put in coke? Cocoa strict with rocks, raw shed to put up a poll new polls. Any more. We do. David pirate. Y'all poll. Broads charge of porn. All the way talking about. I like it better when you don't whisper it. That's that good still. It's. There's worse when you do it. All right. Dodgers win last night and the plan that we've all I think been looking for took place last night. Clayton Kershaw was not at his best, but still pitched seven innings. Walked five guys in the process gave up a couple of runs, but battled through the whole thing, hands it off the Kenta my ADA who was a lights out who handed to kenley Jansen who is despite the leadoff guy getting on very, very solid, a solid from kenley the get a walk off home run from Chris Taylor in the tenth inning Tutu, venos- slider. Fail. Wound, the magic. Once again, Chris Taylor, not as big this years. He was last year, but in the postseason had two big hits and the dodgers are tuning for another magical run. If it's a magical run, that's courtesy of ESPN radio, but it was a huge win, gives them a game and a half leading the division. They're guaranteed to have the Rockies leave Los Angeles, the dodgers the division lead, they're getting big hits. They're able to manufacture runs. They're able to hit their home, runs the pitching starting pitching. The middle relief in the back in relief was all good. The plan that hasn't come together. A lot came together last night. Well, I think if you go back to last year, maybe it was a year before the dodgers all of a sudden they started winning these games in this type of fashion. Every time you look up, it was a, it was a ninth inning, walk off. It was something going on in a tenth. Any, you know you look up and this is what they were doing on a consistent basis ninety and night out. They were winning games in in. So it could be. A magical moment. Again, even though the the record does set necessarily indicate that is a magical run, but based on the small little window that's left these last nine or so games, they could just run these off. I mean, that's certainly the way that they've been playing. As you said earlier, they've beaten the Colorado Rockies five of the last six trips in six tries better yet. They got one more tonight and I'm betting that they probably sweep them while they Walker bueller tonight in he's, I would argue their best pitcher at this point and maybe Kershaw by reputation, certainly their best guy, but by stuff, I still think it's bueller. But the magical part implies to me that they're somehow not supposed to be here. They are supposed to be here and they're finally where they're supposed to be. It's on top of the division. Yeah. I mean, you wouldn't say the Golden State Warriors when a magical run, you wouldn't say the people showing if the Golden State Warriors are in third place down the stretch and all of a sudden it looks like they're not gonna make the playoffs because of three weeks ago look like dodges couldn't like, where were they at? Now? It turns into a magical. Run because of way they were three, three weeks ago, if that was the case with goes, stay warriors toward indices and all of a sudden they got hot, he will turn into a magical. I don't think you would call a magic run. You would say they findings showed up because you have a certain expectation because of the talent that they have because of winning that you're Spinney and because have they've been doing pass consecutive seasons, but does those expectations go away at some point in the season when they're not living up to those expectations when it went all of a sudden in looks bleak in good question. I the, of course, I think that when you are the highest payroll in baseball, when you have the most talented roster that I don't know if you can never be on a magical run when you're supposed to be or even if it comes even if it happens late in the season. I if I'm supposed to be here. Right? You're supposed to be here. Finally around. To be Matt. Kemp is on a magical run. Yes, that's Muncie on emphatical. Monessen only magical run. Why? Because he's doing things running spitting last season. Cody Bellinger was when the magical run, but the team was not on a magical run. The team is doing what he was constructed to do to me. Magical runs to get something unexpected from an unexpected source that leads you to a place you didn't anticipate going. Something's could be magical when you get something that's unexpected. Why. Are you going with this. Expect. That was a magical run into this magical wrong. That is expected. Is there a pill run that I'm on. Is there is. Dry when miss Tracy Jordan, Tracy on the morning show what's going on. Guys, hey, how you doing? I'm good. I'm not. That's my nickname buddy. No. I miss KARN. It's let you boys, don't.

Michael thinks is our best show ever the who's moving shaken keys week three power rankings are the Rams still at the top. That's coming up next see Travis, which you realize realize that if I don't say something, nothing's going to happen waiting for me again, this conversation there waiting for me to start even where he was looking at you like. My side, but even he was like, oh, this is your lane l z because it's sesame. She the the, the tweet key right yesterday. As from a sesame workshop workshop, as we have always said, Bernie Bernier best friends, they were created to teach preschoolers that people can be good friends with those who are very different from themselves. Even though they are identified as male characters and possess many human traits and characteristics they remain puppets, do not have a sexual orientation. So they're just friends. They're not lovers. MS piggies a puppet. She's got. Let me tell you. Let me tell you something about, I'm fine, you know, love love, man, love it, and I'm into it, but there was never a parent you inter. They took bass together and Bert always always came home mad. Like, why don't you clean the house? I'm sorry. There. Okay. Look, there's. There's a wreck. Time the baffler game. Sting, then sharing a bath is a tough one overcome that. That was my best friend with my brother. Kids because Burt had a job. He was. Wording naked back? Like with my brother when we were. Sesame Street wouldn't free. They had that was that was a gated community. They had high rent there, man. So you mean when you have you ever share bass threes. You know, they're not is bath with with with never, never do not get an ice bath. With my friends. You've never ever got into the ice. We've all seen those pictures with a healthy there. One man tubs never. Because he played professional. Shower, take a shower with the mayor, but that's where stopped doing anytime. We'll take a shower with fifty three. I'm big enough. If you that. I got an a little bitty one man to your Thursday. KOMO dupe it, tiny. They're one meant I have small. I've seen plenty of pictures. Pictures right now. I could go back page and find them less. Let's not. Let's do your power rankings for week. Three of the NFL season will travel and Elsie. There was a lot of movement and we to the NFL power rankings. I must say there is so do sales. I told you this pointy arro- anyway to tonight's dub my power. This week in week, two's NFL power rankings is interesting because a week ago, I would've vision having either one of these teams in a power ranking, but I'm gonna give them a small itchy at number ten last week. It was a tie with the jets in Redskins. Both of them kinda just went out the way, but I got two teams in their number course. You again the Miami Dolphins too in a Tampa Bay Buccaneers to Tampa Bay ten because at the end of the day, that's gonna disappear passing. All right now, the Miami Dolphins is gonna stay the same. It was a fluky kind of win for him. I look at the situation, Jamie Swiss. It will get his job back because you have to Jackson has too much money and him in a number one overall, pick. This thing temple will not continue to Shawn Watson key. I want you to listen to this show and watching the he wants Ryan Fitzpatrick, stay in their this on Jack's Sean Jackson. I'm sorry. Yes to Sean Jackson plan on fire right now. You know the way team is ready by item and just playing lights out football, you. You have to kind of honor edge off saying, no, you can't take the house fire right now. It's like NBA general used to play Jimmy, John, whoever it got that high fire, shoot, man. So it's not much, but I'm sure he'll Dirk coach monkey and God's medicine called short of, you know, little stale, fires, fires out. He wants fit. Yeah, I understand. I understand. I understand what he wants, but he ain't gonna get what he wants. Is the Carolina Panthers. I had the chiefs at nine, but the chiefs have moved into a place that a lot of people aren't going to be happy with the chiefs are now moving up. The Panthers are moving back, even though they lost that game that Lanta they've always struggled in Atlanta, but I still feel like Carolina could get on board visual game on the road visual game on the road, and they're one of the better teams in the NFL. So I got them at number nine number eight. Now I've been doing this three years now that never ever once had to Chicago Bears in a power ranking. Bears and the power ranking. They are team. I think defensively or one of the top five defensive units, if not top three defensive units in all of the National Football League there number three, Qissan I have some breaking news. Picture here. In a nice. Another man actually. Can you explain BCC's. We'll talk about that. The internet always has receipt. Later who was number eight. Number eight was just calbears bears at number eight. Number seven. Number seven, or the New Orleans Saints that were once upon a time. Number number eight, they move up one slot because they turn into. I think that turning it on now. He could start to see them kind of jail, although the defense needs to continue to get better. I think when you looked at that loss against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers everybody was in shock, but I think they're over that now a catastrophically bad day from the Cleveland kicker to win that game. Yes, yes. Yeah, that's true. But but but Cleveland is a better team than it's been in the past six. Six is the Green Bay Packers at number six. They were for a week ago. I'm moving back to slots just because you know they can stay still wanna top teams, but it was such a air Rogers, comeback and his leg, and he needs to do this where Minnesota at some point time seemed like they had a commanding lead into. A-rod call five. You worried about his knee? No, no, no. Just look like he's moving great. You excuse the Steelers because of the bad kicking game. Stay me thing. Knows it Steelers, right, Steve. What's that Cleveland? Right. Well, Cleveland lost the game New Orleans because of their kick kick because kick yet Green Bay vase because their kicker to, they got to interrupt your Minnesota lost because. Place them with better kickers. All right. All right. Five. Five. At a Denver Broncos. The undefeated. Denver Broncos are number five. I liked defense like their defense guys like them all that much because a case keenum and you just can I the reason why I don't like him Oakland and Seattle. Those are the two teams. They've Oakland in bad Oakland team at Oakland to Hannah and trying to figure out Seattle team. That. Dreadful. Can you ran for mayor Seattle, you win in a landslide. This is my powering once again, four number four of the Minnesota Vikings, the Minnesota Vikings are number four. They went out and got Don Bailey. I think Bailey is one of the Dan Bailey. Dan notice Don baby just seems. Sports works in industry. Is that right? Yeah, maybe that's what it is, but they went out and got Dan Bailey after cutting their fifth round, pick kicker because that was the thing to do. He he missed field said, when asked, why made the change? Did you see the game? Did you see. Sort of? I number four. The Vikings are number four. Number three, the Kansas City Chiefs. Patrick Mahomes. Flying scoring six touchdown throwing up six spots, high flying scoring six Tex down throwing woo. I didn't mean to spit that you like the second most points in the, they got one more than anybody else. So you got sixty five and they got by by that man. Dodgers would be ahead of their. Different. The can't see chiefs or at number three with a cheese stay at number three. I don't know. But as of right now, they're certainly headed in the right direction number two or the Jacksonville Bortles Jaguars. They went out there and prove to me that they could handle good top notch business when they took care of New England and home in Blake, Bortles play phenomenon. Tom Brady, yeah, he did. You know? So by him though, in a game that game got tight for a minute, and then Jacksonville took care of it, but do you buy him in down in that situation there say they're down by four points, two minutes to go and they gotta drive the field. Blake Bortles has to do that. You buy starting in those type of moments like against the New England, Patriots somehow turn the switch on certain players. This can beat at magical moment for guy. I remember Vinny Testaverde with me with the New York Jets and in nineteen ninety eight. Everybody sitting there on got Vinnie, okay. Well, big deal. But then all of a sudden vide- had a van, a resurgence in his career in kind of the rest was history. This could beat that moment for guy like Blake Bortles. And then obviously, number one or the undefeated potential Super Bowl champion in the Los Angeles Rams are clearly on both sides of the ball, including special teams. Better than most teams have you have four? You have the saints ahead of the bucks? Yeah, I can't. Even though they already played, don't matter then he got in college, football voter, no, I'm not into Ryan. Fitzpatrick man. Why can't he have Vinny Testaverde. He doesn't have later Momeni more. You go give him late resurgence net. He didn't had like seven of them how many more you go. Here's Patrick. Mahomes ten touchdowns this guy got eight. These NFL right now and yours. He's feeling the idea of Ryan Fitzpatrick is is fun, but keys keys, we may. We know exactly what this is going to be. We know exactly what it's going to be. We have faith in Blake, Bortles Katie me. I'm more. Fate than Blake Bortles. I have faith in the Jacksonville Jaguars in the defensive unit in Linnet for net. That's what I have faith in Roger. We're gonna go to the internet though. Successfully. So yes. Today is Wednesday. So you know what that means? Right. Elsie is after Tuesday that and it's hump day. Speaking of the rail terms, he's. The Rams are. That's right. We have hump day wins day giveaway ticket day, all kinds of stuff day. That's why we're giving away Rams tickets every hour. So here's your chance this hour to win Rams versus the chargers this Sunday. Here's how you can win. I'm listening. What breaking Sesame Street news did we give you. Seven caller, tell the breaking Sesame Street news that we dropped here? No, not Keyshawn in the bath. No, we got another one. So keep listening from our chances to win. We'll be doing more. We're gonna be doing some shots later, but this is hope day Wednesday Rams to pass the eight seven, seven, seven, ten ESPN eight seven, seven, seven, three, seven, seven, six. If you know the question, the Sesame Street question answer gives a call. I got a chance to win some tickets Rams and charges the Lakers open camp. Next week. Lonzo is not cleared for full-contact. We'll get into it. Next. It's morning show Keyshawn hills and Travis. Why do we keep playing in sync? You know why. The t shirt and everything for you for me. Not wear a birthday gift for me today. Happy birthday. Nobody has for you. Chris. Number number. Several be taking the shot. Say singer. Shot still hasn't said happy birthday to me. I don't know why mad at me or something. That's it. That just warmed up Chris paper. That'd be free. Yes. Prey on your Phillies compla- on knows. Keila tequila. Shot. When are we all take a bath like Bernie. I told you I don't take baths dues, you were getting treatment that wasn't a bad that was treatment, right? I remember that. All right. You got. Winter our contest. Let's go to Long Beach. And what is it? It's Jacob, Jacob. Good morning. How are you? Hey, good morning. I'm doing great. How about good? So the answer to the question of the breaking Sesame Street news is. They are the best of friends, and that's it. Yeah, that according to the Sesame Street folks, bathrooms, your best friend. It depends is. He's looking whatever you whatever you need, you need ice put ice in the term man. Well, we don't. We don't judge over here. Congratulations. Jacob. You go to see the Rams and the chargers on Sunday. Good job. Thank you very, very uncomfortable position to be right there that ice bath pitcher of with me. Well, it's comparable position because I say it. I've never done that before and yes, I guess you have all the key. Let me try the same. There's I was thinking you thinking the same thing I was which those silver OJ overnight with the motor behind. Makes you being because we have so many players as that's training camp that looks like one of those tubs you buy toys r. us yard. Yeah, exactly. Exactly what it is. Yeah. We're in South Carolina in training camp when I'm with the Carolina Panthers and you know ninety something player. So there's not enough. There's not enough. Yes. So we all I know is I said, I've seen pictures of guys. They can together. You guys looked at me like gay porn movie that I saw. And I was like, no, I'm talking about professional athletes, and then the internet as always have clothes may pay tees off Lonzo and the Lakers are getting ready to open up camp next week. That's good. Lonzo is going to be with the team, but he's not clear for full-contact. Here's what Luke Walton said. We're starting to ease them into it again, play some one on one, things like that, half court stuff, but with the player of his ability and how much he's going to be a part of our future. The conversation is take as much time as you need to make sure he's healthy. We won't rush him back at all and philosophically, yeah, you don't wanna rushing back. You want to make sure he's one hundred percent. You wanna make sure that he's ready to go for the games that matter not necessarily the preseason and whatnot, but for me, at least the the issue that's number one. One on lonzo's need to improve list is availability health, being able to play more games. He missed more than thirty games last year, which is a ton for a rookie player. The we're starting off from behind where he can't go full speed, full contact right out of the gate. It's not nothing. Now. It's not nothing and he missed thirty games, but he left other games because of injury, they wasn't able to finish. So this is what? What is he having this constant knee problem? What is it one a couple times. He's been hit on any. He had the bay bang knees with a player of the play. Okay. So that's the bone right? And he's and there's not a whole lot of flesh there, right? Like he's a really thin guy, narrow you typically when you bump knees, you get a little bone bruise, and it's pretty much in the last five months. True. True. But you never know if it's a bone, bruise that he came back to early on. That Dan became something worse or because he came back to soon ended up being even more sore than what it would be. And so you had to step out a little bit longer like two days later, like you, you never know why to cumulates, but I hear what you're saying key. It seems like if you just knock knees, two games should be ready to bounce back, but he had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee in July July, were in the middle of September and still not clear for contact after missing a bunch of games and look, I, I'm concerned that this is not that this injury particular, but is this the beginning of pattern where he's one of those guys and we've seen it happen where some guys just can't get on the court as much as you would like. Sergeant his left knee. It didn't say just MC l. almost thirty games because of nagging left knee issues. Miss the last eight games of the season underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee scope. Yes. It's like, you know, I had a scope was back in two weeks on the field plan tackle football. So I was like. It is concerning definitely concerning, but do scope they need and get him cleaned out all the time and get right back on the field. And let's go back to last year and lonzo's numbers were really good when Lonzo played. He played well, didn't shoot well, but his game, you know, you're talking about basically ten, seven and seven. He had a get a nice rookie season. If you look at the numbers, the knock on him was he wasn't out there a lot and the whisper, what what was whispered and never really said publicly by anybody was, hey, could he be out there more or the Lakers being overly cautious, just being, you know, he's easing asset, he's somebody that you need to protect moving forward or was he not the guy that's going to grind through it? And I, I don't key. You just said you had a scope miss couple of weeks and your back playing in the NFL. He had this done in July, but but but that's what I'm saying, what exactly. I mean, they're not gonna tell you all the details, but I wonder what's exactly wrong with his knee. Is it? Is it a scope? Does he as some point. Did they have to do something else? Another part of his body? I mean, what is it? Because typically a scope a couple of weeks man within this in this day and age medicine, you couple of weeks in and out. All right. Let's keep talking about this because not only is he not clear for contact, but they went out at had an acquisition this off season for guy that does a lot of the same things that he does and maybe even a little better. And what does that mean going into the beginning of the regular season? We'll do that next morning show Keyshawn l z and Travis ESPN LA.

Hour 2: Best Fit For Kaepernick

"Our next flight night is tomorrow night in Vegas with Alex Saucedo taking on twenty one into Sunny Frederickson and a ten round junior welterweight main event coverage of the prelims begins at eight right here on espn the ESPN APP and ESPN. Poetess and we're just seconds away from the top of the hour. That's nine am in the east. I'm Mike Greenberg in Bristol Connecticut this. Get up on ESPN on a very busy day. Glad you've chosen to get up with us because we had huge news last night, and we are all over it here we go. It's time to get up with Cam Newton signs with new, England. Does this make the Patriots once again? The team to be all over it all our long. Meanwhile, it also leaves one high profile quarterback without a football home. What are the options? Options for Colin Kaepernick. We've got answers to all those questions. And then here they come bubble bound, which of these stars is better positioned for a playoff. Push at Disneyworld answers to all your questions in this hour of get up which starts right now with that name former. NFL MVP Cam Newton. Finally off the free agent market after reaching an agreement with the Patriots and a one year deal, it's incentive laden. He will join Jarret Stidham and Brian Hoyer on the Patriots quarterback depth chart as the team looks to replace Tom Brady and Cam, making no secret of. Of his enthusiasm on instagram story as only he can. I'm excited as I. Don't know what right now. All praise to God. Dropping content tomorrow. I hope you're ready. Let's go pats in. Vegas is impressed with the news of Newton signing Caesar's moving New England's odds twenty five to one down to twenty, two one to win the title ten to one two nine to one to win the conference that we even without adjustment, these are the longest odds who has had to win the title entering season since two thousand two, but if you think about it, that's back. Back when they were based on defense and running the ball before Tom Brady really became a superstar, and that's what we expect this team to be. It would seem. They'll be based on defense and running the ball as only Cam Newton Cam necas with us, and the one in the only Stephen a Smith is here this morning I take an hour away. Actually this will be the Combo on I. Take Today. NECAS Steven A. So. Steve Welcome as always. What is your initial reaction when you heard it yesterday? Cam to the Patriots. What was your first phone? Well, loved it I loved it because I know what a tremendous athlete Cam Newton is, I know how hungry he is to really shut up the naysayers that have questioned his level of greatness, and what he's produced throughout his career, and a combination of that would not just a great this bill belichick, but a highly motivated bill check who's out to prove that he can indeed win without Tom Brady as his quarterback I think all the stars have aligned of I. Love the idea of these together I think that he can help cam and. Be, a better quarterback and I think that Cam in all those certainly not to pass that Tom Brady has been throughout his illustrious career I. Don't think there's any question that Tom Brady is not his stratosphere. As an athlete of the ability to move to change to run with the football, the make things happen with his legs that dual threat that Cam Newton we'll present at. At the quarterback position with Bill Belichick and Josh mcdaniels, your offensive coordinator. I think it can reap some big time dividends of for the New England Patriots. I'm excited for Cam Newton particularly since he's highly motivated since so much about him has been questioned because him and bill belichick now might be the two of the top three most motivated people in the entire NFL with. With Tom Brady obviously being in that top three as well I. Love that Thought Dominique. We've been talking about this morning, but haven't really gotten to that the mindset you would imagine Cam Newton is in here. He was the face in every way of the Carolina Panthers Franchise overwhelmingly. The most important player that franchise ever had, and they let him go in a way that can. Can can be deemed by many disrespectful, and then they did that twitter poll last week where they didn't even include him. Amongst their franchise legends, no team seem to want him. Schefty said an hour ago. There were no other teams that were interested in him. What would you imagine cam? Newton's mindset is going into this well. He's incredibly motivated and I think Cam Newton as. As I mentioned earlier. You're not just signing a quarterback. You're signing an offense, and that's what he's been down in Carolina. They haven't had too many great players to put around him. Occasionally they had all alternate was might have been the best receiver that he had was the tight end. You see him questionable right there and they had McCaffrey recently, but CAM hasn't. Hasn't been healthy for much of that. You're putting them in a similar situation where they have a lot of good running backs in a great office of line new. England but not much else and I. Think Cam Newton is good enough to make any offense, even a hobbled Cam Newton I. think brings their offense to mediocre, and if Cam Newton can get anywhere close to. To showing flash of greatness that he was showing before he got hurt again, and would he show him back in his MVP seas I, do think this is a legitimate super bowl. Contending team because that defense is so good and running the ball on offense with the quarterback makes them look a lot like what the ravens are doing their with Lamar. Jackson that's that. That could be incredibly scary. Especially since Cam Newton also has the ability to throw for three hundred plus yards in a game multiple touchdowns. That team is getting pretty scary right now although I still think the Ravens and the chiefs are ahead of them, it's an interesting thought. Their defense is really good, so when above average offense. This year is probably good. Stephen Ain't got. I know that we're just asking the question. People are going to yell at me, but I think it's the right question to ask for this coming season alone. Of the Patriots better off with Tom Brady or Cam Newton as their quarterback, which version of the Patriots is better this coming season? Tom Brady at quarterback Cam Newton a quarterback. Well I'm going to say Cam Newton and I can say that with relative ease because of the friction it evidently existed between Bill Belichick and Tom Brady. There were no longer on the same page they they want the same page in terms of prioritizing attempting to win football game. There's no doubt about that. Nobody should question that, but in terms of their belief in one, another Tom Brady obviously was severely compromised because of the lack of weapons that were to them not to kill Harry. Mukasey and And, those boys can't play. It's just that they were relatively young. Jolyon Ataman. Certainly wasn't one hundred percent healthy. Even though you, Josh mcdaniels did the fact of the matter. Is Bill Belichick committee clear years earlier that he was willing to move in a different direction, and so there was residue of discontent there that simply could not be ignored, and when you have that kind of stuff going on between your quarterback, and you're coach, and both of you have one six super bowl championships together there. There does come a point in time where it's. You're able to say look, the time is now. It's no longer what it used to be. We need to move on. Certainly you don't compare to resume. Of Cam Newton to that of Tom Brady, but it did reach a point where clearly they needed to separate and move in different directions, and there's nothing wrong with that. No matter how great a combination may be, you get a point where you're tired of looking at each other you're tired of. Of hearing each other's voice, you're tired of getting the same reaction from one another whatever and especially when you're a coaches, greatest bill belichick and you basically put word out. That I'm looking to move on from this guy and it was in the form of Jimmy Garoppolo. I got news for you. If you Tom Brady, you're better off in Tampa Bay right now. He knows that everybody else should know it. And considering the fact that Cam Newton has been questioned. He got screwed over Riley the. Panthers because of how late they waited to let him go and basically compromise his marketability in his leverage. The fact is, he's incredibly incredibly motivated. He's eleven years at least younger then Tom Brady, and he can run with the football and he's more athletic. It's not gonNA. Be The sane, but there's no question that there are things that Cam Newton can do that can help the New England Patriots Bill Belichick look. Cam Newton is a lot younger than people think he is Cam Newton is younger than Russell, Wilson, Cam Newton is younger than Aaron. Rodgers is younger than a lot of quarterbacks. Who is still playing at a very high level? Then go ahead. Any looks like a defensive end when you see him in those workout video, he's a monster, but I mean I think the first state debate is going to start it's GonNa Begin Right now. Because as much as I love Cam Newton, this situation I still would feel feel better with Tom Brady back there for the season, because of the history had so much success and I'm sure that the turmoil that they had last year. It wasn't the wasn't the first. First Time they have some turmoil. You mentioned they wanted to opera Jimmy Garoppolo. They win. One super bowls after Jimmy Garoppolo got set or ACO after Jimmy Garoppolo got sent out of San Francisco so I love Cam, there I think cam is the second best option, but if they could have kept it together with Tom Brady I feel more confident that team. Honestly even know. Tom Brady is in forty plus than I do and this Cam. Newton offense going forward Grad Save. What is a lot of. ARGUMENT MY MY MY CONTENTION! Is that based on what we saw from them? Last year I'm not saying again resumes. Don't even compare Tom. Brady right isn't another stratosphere, but based off of what we saw in terms of their relationship last year. It was clear it was time to move on. That's what I'm saying. That's what I'm competing camps arrival to the departure Tom of Tom. Brady. That's all I'm saying. I would I would actually not only agree with Steve. I would take a step father if you just look at the situation. Of. What the the New England offense looks like and what? The Tampa offense looks like the Tampa. Offense is much more built for a quarterback with Tom Brady skillset than the one that he leaves behind a new. England that one seems perfect for what Cam Newton does. Well I mean I absolutely agree with you understand you guys point and maybe I'm going off emotions and going off at the track record like Stephen, but two years ago they were in a super bowl with that same kind of offense built on a great defense. In last year they were one of the best teams in the League. They lost late season to Miami and then lost the first round playoff game to Tennessee. But I. It's hard for me to guarantee that Cam. Newton's GonNa get there and dwell that I feel confident that he will, but I know Tom Brady and the Patriots they find themselves deep in the playoffs winning AFC east almost every year. Greenie let me bring this whole for you and my man. Deif so y'all have beautiful beautiful relationship. Okay, everything's beautiful. Everything's peachy. Keen there one day I walk up to you and I. Slap you and I say I don't want you to work with you. I don't want you on this. Damn show all that success. All of a sudden goes to hell out the window because I slapped you and told you to love is no longer here. Excuse me, that's basically what bill. Tom Brady. That's all. I'm saying I mean some players, I remember it was John. Henry the defensive line for the Jacksonville Jaguars sometimes. You just need a little slap that gets you. To wake you up and get you ready to fight, so maybe that's what Tom Brady got. Slapped me the show is just GonNa be better. 'cause I'm be fired up after that very quickly and these guys. That go ahead on Thursday. In fifteen minutes, but Stephen I'll just ask you this. What are the Patriots now in a conference that has Kansas City with Mahomes and Baltimore with Lamar Jackson and other good young quarterbacks, like to Sean and other good old quarterback, Philip rivers may be in a good Indianapolis team. What are the Patriots with Cam Newton? Their top three TV AFC I don't think that anybody can usurp Kansas. City of Baltimore at this particular juncture. We look at Philip rivers in India we look into Shawn Watson in Houston. Obviously Big Ben Rothlisberger coming back to Pittsburgh. We can't ignore buffalo because that. Defense Israel and who knows I. Mean again they listen. They've got some weapons and Stefan digs is. Is Now, but in the end New England is New England. They've got an elite defense. They've got a big time running game. They have an exceptional coach. And now they have arguably the hungriest athlete in the sport in Cam Newton who has clearly been disrespected and set up to fail prior to his arrival in New England yesterday. I think the combination of. Of the two, you can legitimize new. England patriots as a top three team in the AFC Steven A. and dominate I take this morning forty nine minutes away right here on Espn Stephen Eight of the best. Thank you, my man. We'll see what about an hour. Meanwhile, we have much more to do in between now, and then can may be off the. The Market Colin Kaepernick. Still Available Meena cons will join us.

If you're just joining us the big news. Former NFL MVP Cam Newton, finally off the free agent market after reaching an agreement with the Patriots on a one year deal incentive laden, here's how Patriot fans were reacting last night on W. E. I radio. I loved it. Came from the wing. Super Book. Pretty typical. Like Chino Setting Godfather three every time I, take a step back. They pull me back in. He's already going to be an interesting season. Right because I'm. I'm of tied of thirteen and fourteen and two for the past twenty years so good interesting, anyway. duper man has landed in Patriot. I would tell you Sean Bill Bella. IS A. Master. Like Jesus. Well not everyone was thrilled with the way this thing turned out. Richard Sherman had this on twitter. How many former league MVP's have had signed for the minimum asking for a friend? Just ridiculous transcendent talent and less talented quarterbacks are getting fifteen to sixteen million a year. It's disgusting obviously has a point. But we also understand why it happened. And part of it is this. It's all the injuries. He sustained that shoulder injury on that hit in November twenty eighteen after that hit from steelers Tj Wadi would go shoulder surgery then suffered a foot injury in a preseason game against the Patriots have all teams last year eventually one on season ending I are with his last game coming in week two. Two and including the playoffs, he's been hit thirteen hundred eighteen times since he entered the League in two thousand eleven. That's two hundred and thirty six more times than the next closest quarterback in that span, so let's get into this now with Mike Tannenbaum. Who knows what it's like to make these decisions and so let me just ask you. This I brought it up with Steven A. and dominate. If, you were just making a decision for this season and this coming season alone are the Patriots better-equipped as they are constituted right now on the offensive side of the ball to win games with Tom, Brady or Cam? Newton is a quarterback. Owner doesn't hear him W-, I, apologize to the audience. If you also earn hearing him, I didn't and I thought for a second. Maybe it's possible that you were hearing him and I'm not. We'll get. My Tanenbaum worked out. Maybe it was that enormous smoothie he was drinking earlier. That influenced the his ability for us to hear him. Let's go back if I have dominic foxworth standing by Nico back to you on what we were talking about a moment ago, because when we were talking with Stephen a Smith a minute ago, the quarterback situations of every team in the AFC. Ending Array! Of. Great Young quarterbacks. We know our great like Mahomes and Lamar a bunch of fascinating on quarterbacks that will see borough and darnold and Mayfield and others, and then the aging vets who were still hanging around like rivers and Rothlisburger, so the AFC is loaded with good quarterbacks as far as I can see, and that makes me fascinated to see what Cam Newton can do. A New England first of all I. Want a portion of Mike Tannenbaum. Check because I'm out here during his work because he can't get his equipment to work second of all the most important thing in. In the AFC playoff race is what has always been is how weak the AFC East is. I think that is important to understand it to never forget because while we're talking about how good pass Mahomes is, and I do think that he's probably GonNa win the West. He still has to contend with the broncos who are up and coming team the chargers who are loaded and if they have if they turn out to have a good quarterback that could be a problem and Oakland. Well Matt no longer Oakland and the raiders, who a of people leave or more. More talented than they've been in the past and going to make a run here soon in the same thing is true for Baltimore. They have to go up against the loaded Browns, and also against that incredibly tough defense in Pittsburgh when they're bringing been rothlisberger, those are tough ways to go, and so having that by even though there's only one left having that bias hugely important, there's only one team with a by going forward, and that's the way the playoff structure will be I think the Patriots have an opportunity to despite not being the best team in the. The AFC to being well positioned to have to host a home playoff game and possibly be the number one seed going into the playoffs. I, know we're GONNA. I'm getting ahead of myself. And maybe some recency biases being all excited about having Cam Newton there, but it feels like they are. They worry quarterback away, and that special quarterback is in this moment could became new now. Listen I mean I. Don't disagree with what you're saying. Football is a game in which a bunch of men hit each other for sixty minutes, and in the end New England winds. That's. That's what happens and Mike Tannenbaum living that all of his life, and so have I. we've got the sound back with Mr T.. Mike quickly. Let me come to you on a comparison to something that you did in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety eight, and how well that worked out? Greeting, no question about it. This is just like vinny, Testaverde, former number-one pick, form and heisman trophy winner, for some reason is on the market in June. We signed him out the jets to be the backup behind Glenn Foley Glenn Fall fully starts with the first two games. And what is Vinny Testaverde do? He leaves us as you remember Greenie to the AFC championship game against the Denver Broncos, and then vinny testaverde's is richly rewarded I see so many of the same comparisons Cam Newton former overall number, one pick heisman trophy winner for some reason he's out there in June and even if started opening day, Cam going gonNA play a ton. Ton this year and the word I would use his. He's investing future with Bill Bell. Check I think it's a great great move by Cam Newton for the next part of his career I do to how much of this though is based on are just sort of blind belief in Belichick, which he has earned with all that he's accomplished, because shefty told us no other team in the League wanted I'm here. We are waxing rhapsodic about a move that makes the Patriots. Superbowl team for a guy that Adam Schefter said. Basically thirty one other teams weren't interested in how much of this we just giving Bella check the benefit of the doubt. I think in part, but as you were alluding to earlier, Cameroon's a great fit with these running backs in new, England. They don't have great receivers, but this will be a totally different offense again. It'll be similar to what Josh mcdaniels do with Tim Tebow Endeavor back in two thousand ten and eleven. They went to the playoffs so I. Think it's really smart. Football is a game of chess played on grass bill check will take the best pieces. He has this year to put them in the best chance to be successful, so it's smart. The risk reward for both sides makes a ton of sense, and now the AFC is GonNa. Look totally different because nobody will be much. Much more difficult to defend with Newton than they would have been with stem I'm with you I it just. It made too much sense all along not to happen. It's just remarkable that no other team wanted Cam Newton the Patriots get him, and it makes them a super bowl contender. We have much more on this as we go. Meantime will join US talked about how Cam Newton fits into the Patriots scheme, and the entire landscape of the AFC and what it means for the lone remaining high profile, free agent quarterback all coming up next on, get up! It's your home. Speaking and I need you to do me a couple of favors. I could get that blueberry that rolled under the fridge last week. It's throwing my functions. Way Off second thing. Bundle your home and car insurance with GEICO. It's easy, and we could save money. Lastly I know you're thinking of painting the nursery back to white but I'm actually feeling. This baby blue didn't think it was my color, but I am pulling off Gyco for bundling made easy. Go to GEICO DOT COM today. Back on, get up with the big news in the morning Cam Newton, a one year. Deal with New England. How did we get here? Let's take a look back at can carry ally. Cam Newton has been league MVP recently the Aaron Rodgers and been to the super bowl more recently than Russell Wilson, and his younger than either of them. How often is a quarterback like that available to the highest bidder? He's also just eighteen months removed from playing MVP caliber quarterback midway through the two thousand eighteen season, he had nineteen touchdowns, four turnovers and twenty, two hundred, thirty five total yards. Those are better numbers than when he actually was the MVP three years before and his team was six. Six and two then you got her a big hit to the shoulder and he did. What football players do. He tried to play through it, but the second half of the season was a disaster, and sometimes it feels as though the world just forgot how good he was. The panthers certainly did can is right now the only player with the current franchise record in both passing and rushing touchdowns, and still they showed him the door in a manner that can kindly described as less than appreciative. That was the way I. Put. It Stephen a Smith earlier this morning. Here on this show said he got screwed in Carolina and frankly I don't disagree meanwhile, the NFL world reacting yesterday Odell Beckham tweeting Cam Newton. You've been working. You deserve that Jamal Adams tweeting I salute coach Bill Belichick for that. That's real congratulations cam the mccourty twin, simply posting two sets of eyes. emojis for the world is paying attention. Let's talk about it with meantime joins us this morning and Dominic Foxworth is with us as well. Both unique said way back in March. The Patriots should sign Cam Newton so when you saw they finally did it yesterday. What was your first thought? I'm finally right about something so I'm GonNa Brag, because I'm so rarely right about things I it's crazy because it just seems so obvious at the time, and it's bizarre that it took this long, but from a football perspective I couldn't be more thrilled to watch this because I love the fit precisely because new. England doesn't require of fit. That's what's so great about this team. Everyone describes him as being rigid, but really their greatest strength is how malleable. Dominique knows bill belichick when the oldest coaches the NFL will change his defensive game plan week to week on offense over the years they've evolved, and I expect them to evolve and Taylor, this offense, a candidate and skill sets. I think we'll see a little bit of what they did. WOULD YOU BE? A little bit what we've seen in Baltimore with the Mark Jackson, and a lot of what you described at the top what Cam Newton did in the beginning of two thousand eighteen under NORV. Turner and Carolina when he was putting up some of the best numbers of his career. Quick passing game misdirection play action, New England can do all of that with them and I will be very. So that begs I guess we've jumped way ahead of this question, but is there any doubt in your mind that here's their starting quarterback Meena immediately he walks in there. Get the ball and they are now rebuilding the whole thing around him starting today. Just health I mean. I like no one else really knows the extent of his injury whether he's fully recovered from that foot injury, which really was on display in two thousand and nineteen, but if he is healthy, it's a no brainer if he is healthy, even though the Patriots do not have excellent skill players, they lack speed at the position. He didn't have excellent skill players. Carolina instill succeeded with them. He's playing on a better offensive line with A. A Better Defense New England being about the injury piece of this. We haven't really touched on that this morning. But shefty told US thirty one other teams weren't interested in this case and we've seen guys are practicing on high school field. If someone wanted to do a physical, they would have ultimately been able to do one or at least gotten some idea of what kind of condition he is in. Is that a concern to you? I'm it's not a concern considering what they paid for them like they. They were in a situation where they could use upgrade at that position, and they got it for quite cheap like it doesn't concern me from the Patriots perspective, but from perspective, of course he's taking. We've seen the stats. He's taking more hits than any other quarterback and his time in the League, so there are some concern that he can get hit, and there's some concern because he's referee differently and the rest of the allow him to get hit more consistently than other teams meaning mentioned how good that offensive line is that to protect Cam Newton and I'm sure he's. He's had plenty of time to think of ways that he can better protect himself forward, so I don't have much concern about them, but I do think that that the page is GonNa. Do everything they can to protect him and only make him run when they absolutely need to me now there are some questions you ask knowing that you're going to get yelled at nearly for asking the question, but I think it is reasonable one to ask here on for one year and one year only this coming season taking into account, the totality of the circumstances are the Patriots better suited to win with Tom Brady or Cam Newton as their quarterback. I would say they're better. See to Tom Brady just because of the circumstances right. This abbreviated off season. He knows the system I think it would have been easier for them, right? This is a difficult situation. He's walking into but I. Think it's a good situation and one thing I want to bring about the injuries that I didn't earlier can actually took fewer sex than Tom. Brady in two thousand eighteen to the first half of the season because they're getting the ball out quickly. I think New England can do that with this year and. And keep him healthy. Okay, let's take one other thing. The original reason we wanted to talk to you. Today was because of something. You posted on twitter yesterday with Cam Newton. Off The free agent market one could now argue that Colin. Kaepernick is the most talented quarterback available and Meena thinks there was one candidate that makes perfect sense for capper nick to join. She tweeted yesterday going over the AFC south depth charts for next week's podcast. How do the titans not have a veteran backup if I'm Tennessee, I've got cap on speed dial. Especially now with cam out of the picture that I think even greater focus on the possibilities for Colin Kaepernick. Meena you have the floor. Absolutely I've felt for a while that the best Colin Kaepernick is a good football team with an entrenched starter. That needs a high quality high upside backup your Pittsburgh's. Your Houston's your Kansas City's I actually forgot about Tennessee until I looked at the depth chart and saw how thin they work behind Ryan Tannehill. Mike is an injury history several years entire season to me. That's a team that more. More than any other team in the NFL needs a starter. Even pardon me a backup looking. Come in relief right now. You know you've got aside and he's a question. Markelle two thousand eighteen seventh round draft pick. It was cut by Cincinnati. Maybe they like him, but if I'm Tennessee I absolutely give Colin Kaepernick call. What do you think, nate? Yeah, I love that from a football standpoint. Standpoint but I. DO think it's important to understand that I think. FIVETHIRTYEIGHT did a poll in twenty seventeen in of all the NFL teams, only six teams fan, base, lean, lean, more Republican than Democrat in one of those teams was Tennessee, and we know that the president and many people on the right side I'll are not big fans Colin Kaepernick so to the degree that the titans Tennessee's. Tennessee's cares about how their fans will react. It's one of the few teams in the League that it's possible there. Fans may not welcome Colin Kaepernick or any demonstrations during the national anthem. We perhaps we don't know that one way or the other, but we do now is what we can't. We can't try and figure out. Is What the football fit of? It looks like and I'm picturing. They had Marcus Mariota running that their offense up until fairly recently and and to use niks words Marcus Mariota was sort of a poor man's. If not a destitute Man's version of Colin Kaepernick at his best, so they sort of had. We've seen what that offense looked like and they won games with it. I agree absolutely I think Arthur Smith their offense. Coordinator is creative. He knows how to build around a mobile quarterback and by the way. I'm glad you mentioned Marcus. Mariota talk about a team that knows the value of a high quality backup. Paying for Ryan Tannehill him coming in and having season of his career, they need someone like carpeting and I'm not even saying it has to be con- covering. They just need someone behind hill to me. He seems like the best option out there. Okay, so let's sit here and have a little fun before we run. Dominic right now ranked for me the teams because we're talking about all these AFC contenders rank for me. The teams in the AFC in order until you get to New England. I'm picturing Tennessee being part of that conversation, be Patriots last, nope? Ravens. Patriots. That's it. That's A. That's Southfield right now. Maybe I'm high on the moment. I'm maybe I'm doped up on this recently bias. At the Ravens Patriots. I'm going to go chiefs Ravens. Colts Patriots Colts. I mean rivers. Rivers rivers have as much as left datum as I. Think People believe he hasn't him I'm not sure that they're better with rivers overset, but you're picking so head to head. It's a whole near debate. Holtz holds verse Patriots. You're picking Coast First Patriots Right now you're picking colts. beat the still for still if you go down, the depth starts on both sides of the ball, I think the Patriots have better defense, but I think Indianapolis better offensive line, better skill players. Got Into Buckner is enormous for them I think they're gonNA win the division. I. There's also not as I was just sitting here. Going through the teams in my head. They're practically isn't a team of the AFC. That doesn't have a fascinating quarterback situation for one reason or another it is, it is a quarterback packed conference. Fascinating always great to see you. Thank you very much. Nick Getting Ready to do I take. We're getting ready to do a whole lot more. Cam Newton another star, returning to the grid. Who's going to be the comeback player of the year Nick will answer that question and several others, and we'll get to some NBA conversation up next as well. You're watching GUETTA ON ESPN. Back on get up on our top story again former MVP CAM Newton off the free agent market after reaching an agreement with the Patriots on a one year deal that is incentive laden. Newton becomes a prime candidate to win comeback player of the year after playing only two games in two thousand nineteen. We haven't really touched on this all morning long, but it'd be think about some prime candidates. Look at the names on the screen here in Gaza, you could see being in this conversation for Comeback Player of the year Aj Green Gronk Ham Matt Stafford. Jj Watt, and there are others, so let's get into it as we bring Dominic Foxworth back to answer the question, and here is the first one dominique who is your favorite win Comeback Player of the year I'm. I'm. With Matthew Stafford I mean I love Cam, Newton in that situation, and he's GonNa play well, but math Matt Stafford was playing incredibly well until he got injured last season, and I think that he would he have nineteen maybe in five interception second most in the League for nineteen thousand pounds. I expect him to come back fifties and and to pick up where he left off when he got hurt and. And have a really great season. Maybe even be an MVP conversation I got him Matt. Stafford lined up for Comeback Player of the wow. He was having a sneaky huge year last year. We pointed out a few times early last season, but MVP candidate Matt Stafford. I'd like it all right next if I told you right now. Only one of the two were going to win a playoff games this year. Who You got Cam Newton or Tom Brady. I Cam Newton. Think that Cam Newton in the AFC east they could. They may not be the top team. They may not get that one by, but I got him having at least a home playoff game against an opponent that they can beat. They won't have either Baltimore Kansas City coming into their home. Assume those teams are one and their three. They'll have a lesser wildcard team I got Tampa Bay potentially not winning that division and playing A. A tougher opponent down there in the NFC and maybe not even having a home playoff game, so I have a lot more faith in the infrastructure of with the Patriots do and their experience and adding a great player to a team that seems to always find its way into at least one playoff, Wayne, if not multiple have more faith in that than I do what they're building down there in Tampa Bay and just kind of input.

"No one likes to feel stuck especially by your cloud but the IBM cloud is the most open and secure public cloud for business. It can manage all your apps and data anywhere smart. Loves problems. Ibm Let's put smart to work visit. Ibm Dot Com slash flexible pool? Man We're having a conversation during the break year about everything that's going on corona virus One of the things I thought was interesting. I was watching Our mayor's speech last night Thinks he said it's continued to try and frequent some of the restaurants. You go to. Obviously they're not open to go in and sit down and have a meal but you can pick up you can carry out. You can ubereats and with your door. Dash GRUB hub post mates whatever it is that you do but try to continue to spend at least a little bit of money in these places so people can continue to have these restaurants open. You want to go back to normal. Then you need to make sure that the structure of normal is still in place when we come to the other side. So Uber Eats your favorite restaurant. And there's a place you always on the go to for Taco Tuesday or whatever. The day is then just ordering so they can still get the money for him because right now. Government officials said that this inaction if you will or not comic leads up to twenty percent of unemployment. That's crazy I saw not to throw too many wild things out there but I saw the same report that at the height of the Depression in the Twenties and thirties unemployment was twenty two percent. So that's a that's a thing. That's just my favorite restaurant downtown. I gotTa Lobster Roll sent to me. Yes lovely have. Somebody's bring some Burgers to your house or Tacos or pizza whatever's going Vegan stuff man. That's still keep the people see boy. You can't think of the Vegan. Carry out stuff doesn't take the same. Turkey meat. Bring Turkey so Jim Trotter from the NFL network. He's going to join US coming up here in just a little bit. What are you guys looking over my shoulder breaking news Andrea Hopkins Headache Music? You guys saw Moore would've the tweet. Ceos was being blown out of proportion just being blown out of proportion he has you know basically basically saying his out proportion what an Emmy. He said he had a most respect for bill. O'brien that's okay. I got the most respectful and cool. Doesn't mean it doesn't mean that he didn't feel a certain way he just trying to look. I want this thing to go. He said he said man. I'm GONNA play football. I don't want to deal with. I don't want to dive into the fact that he said. I'm on a similar path Aaron Hernandez let's move on or is there or is he saying look. Michael Irvin misunderstood what I was saying. There's nothing here because those are two different things while the tweet to me. Read to be like the ladder like it's a little bit overstated what the exchange was and what the implications were in terms of. Marg relationship with coach. Which kind of goes to what I was saying in terms of from what I know from Bill. O'brien I don't see that guy. Just say hey you got a baby mamas and you're going to be a murder related Outta here. Whatever their bill to him and I'll tell you this Whatever bill said to him he said it. Whatever it was it was certainly some bad blood in the room because he moved him to quit for nothing. Yeah so whatever happened ages given that way you don't. You're not on a new team because nothing happened or you know what would be better for me. If the honor Hopkins were not on my team and David Johnson and a second and a fourth round pick. We're on my teeth so it's not what happened twelve minutes ago. This is the tweet. This is being blown way out of proportion as I said before. I enjoyed 'em proud of my time with the Texans. I have the utmost respect for coach. O'brien then that will not change now. I'm ready to play for the cardinals period. We'll see I'm sure there'll be a second round. There's always a second round all right. Tom Brady is in new. Excuse me as in Tampa he left to England. The chargers are still looking for a quarterback. Joining us right now to break it all down. Jim Trotter from that. Were Good Morning. Jim How are you Philip? How you doing what's up? Jimmy is whatever you guys want to be. What's happening man how you been? I'm Greg how you just you know. Do improve much with Stan indoors. Going to work when I need to and just trying to stay positive and hope this thing passes by as quickly as possible You know I feel for people. I've got you know who owned restaurants France who work in the hotel industry in Vegas and and Man It's just it's hard out there right now so I know we have a job to do with football but I really feel for these folks who were dealing with this because You truly are you not only playing with lives but you playing livelihoods at this point so hopefully we can get a handle on this thing absolutely on the low the people you know what the hotels and figures are the managers can look what rooms later. I don't think you have any problem getting a room in Vegas So you don't need any help with that speaking of problems. The chargers seemed like they have a problem at quarterback spot. They cannot land anybody at least a couldn't land. Tom Brady what happened with the pursuit of Brady and the chargers Jim you know that's signed the way My understanding is that they were heavily. Involved came down to two teams Tampa and and and the chargers and basically Brady's camp said look these are the terms are you enter you out and both teams were in financially Basically on a two years sixty plus million dollar deal it would be fully guaranteed and then it came down to some other factors One voice time started wearing things like you know. State taxes versus nine weather conditions You know both of those were good both situations and then it became. It came down to things that that The chargers could not control and and that's Tom's proximity to a son who lives in New York area and also the Brady family being an east coast family. You know well known that they like to vacation in Miami. Costa Rica and South America. And that's an easier flight an easier get to from Florida than it is from Los Angeles. So ultimately it was it was factors that were beyond the charges control about why time alternately went to decided to sign with Tampa. So what are the expectations from your perspective in terms of not just what the team success would-be but his individuals success. He didn't have a great statistical year. Last season was that because of the talent around him or with because he's declining. No I think it was a number of factors. I think Tom is still playing at a high level Now as you playing at the level of a decade ago but he's still extremely efficient on town to quarterback but as you could see last year he simply could never get on the same page with the receiving group and you lose a guy like a security blanket in many situations and and bad affected him and I also think when you watch him at times last year I think you could see some of the frustration of just knowing that it was probably going to be as last season knowing that things were not set up in a way for them to win and to maximize talent and the princess. You would see some throwaways where it was almost like. At that moment in the play he was giving up on the play instead of years past where maybe he tries to extend that. Play a little bit and find someone So I just think all all around it was just a bad situation form last year in New England. I think coming to Tampa Clearly they're loaded with offensive skill position town. And when you talk about God when you talk about Mike Evans. Oj Howard. You know the running back position. And what's going to be interesting to me to see how his how he matches up with what Bruce Arians likes to do. Bruce likes to push it down the field in New England. They were more horizontal than vertical. there'll be a lot of steps seven step drives. He'll take some hit so I have to stand in the pocket. Bruce will challenge his quarterbacks in that way. I mean that's not to say the time is not up for that. It's just GonNa be interesting to see the transition. He's going to make their but I think in just my opinion. I think Tom Makes Tapa instant division and even Super Bowl contender from this standpoint. When you go back and look at them last year the bucks they're decent came on really over the last six weeks prior to that people say well. It didn't play that well. He's had any other. When you have a quarterback who turned the ball over thirty six times that truly compromises a defense you playing on a short field. You're playing with limited rest at times and the one thing we know about Tom Brady is. He is not going to turn the ball over. You'd never had a season where he threw more than fourteen interceptions. We had James last year throwing thirty interceptions and Thomas not going to take the sacks that that James took as well so from my opinion when you look at their offense of talent when you look at what he brings in terms of attitude approach work ethic and and and that history of winnings I think he's going to be a perfect fit. There and I think Tampa Bay is a team that you're GONNA have to deal with Jim Trotter from the NFL network. Joining US here on keyshawn L Z and Travis and Jim. If Tom Brady at the charges were all in on. Tom Brady and that was planning a what's Plan B. And might that be Cam Newton? What I was told yesterday. I said Cam Newton and not been discussed to that point. Now that's because in part We didn't know that Cam was going to be either traded or released. So might they revisit that it's a possibility? Here's the issue with Cam besides concerns about health and teams. Not being able to go and personally you know. Check out guys on the medical at this point is that camps on the final year of his deal. If you acquire cam two things are gonNA happen. Either he's GonNa play out that deal and if he plays really well he's GonNa WanNa big deal or he's GonNa come in and want extension right there so you have to be in a position to say that either we're going to extend him or if he plays really well we're going to be willing to pay him So that's one thing. My feeling is what the charges are going to do it. We all know athlete. Land is very confident in tyrod Taylor and believes that he can be a bridge. I I still think. They're going to go draft and find their quarterback but I do know this and I've been told that they are not a club. It's going to just draft a quarterback but the sake of drafting a quarterback. They are going to believe that. That is a guy who can be there long term answer and I think sitting in the spot that they're sitting in the draft. I do think as a possibility they should be able to do that. What do what is your feelings about? Where the organization heading into a new stadium is that is it. They want to just be eighteen or do they want to be win. The division be competitive because tyrod Taylor's the stopgap right. I mean in a young quarterback takes a long time. Dan Marino's the last guy is a young quarterback. And I think that really pushed the envelope down the field well Keystone I. I would argue that that you know. There have been other quarterbacks who obviously didn't play as well as Dan did your too but when you look at Peyton and others and and again. Those are all saying quarterbacks But I think that they feel and again. I'm not saying that I completely agree with it but I think that they feel that ball. Security was such an issue with him and compromise them so much last year. That tyrod is not going to be the turnover seeing that Philip was and if they can get their running game going and they've improved their off line with the two moves that they've made already and could still address that further in the draft. I think they feel that that if they can do that. If they can stay healthy defensively that they can compete. You know To possibly get a playoff spot And in their minds maybe they believe they can go further. I don't believe that they can If they're constructed in that way. But maybe that's what they feel And then you go out and look we all know. This Lee is a quarterback driven league. And you've got to have that guy so Do they believe they can find one in the draft who can come in and play within a year or two I don't know at this point. We don't know they've not said and we'll have to wait and see but I understand your point but you know teams. Don't knives they do. They listen to me. That's that's one way to Jim Trotter. Nfl network join us here on the morning. Show thank you Jim appreciate it. Thank you sir. Appreciate you guys have me. I mean to hear him say Super Bowl Champ Super Bowl contender division contender for sure. And it's funny because if you'RE IN TAMPA. The timeline gets sped up incredibly. There's no more building we got Tom Brady for a couple of years. We got we got to get one in a couple of days. I think they contend for the division contending for the Super Bowl. It's just I it's so deep in the NFC Zim Chicago Bears Defenseman. That's mean and they could just figure out the quarterback spot. That defense is and speaking of figuring out. The quarterback spot brings us to the other team the chargers. What do they do they go into? The draft is at Camp. How do they figure it out? And if they get it right. Are they on that list? That's coming up next once you here. It's coming it's spent right now at work saying that. I'm still on government she. We've had the government cheese all those performance bonuses. Those guys got here in the last week from the NFL guys that got drafted at lower stages undrafted free agents. They get a player per singed. Bonus for the amount of time that they play. It's like basically unaccounted for monies. Finding it in your jacket and they got like three hundred grand two hundred not heavy. It's not like finding you know -tated swinney really know exactly what the numbers be because it depends on where your salary is and how much plan time way taking me through. Where's where's the money? Come from the money comes from the owners of pool this that I forgot exact total amount of work but it's dispersed throughout the two thousand players in the NFL to every player to every single player. Aaron Rodgers gets but Aaron Rodgers will get like five hundred dollars so but Aaron Rodgers. Get the same amount as everybody else or else. You'll get less money. You make the more you get in the less money you make in depending on how much you time. You play like that Prescott's rookie year. He may more money in the player performance and he did in his regular base salary. I've never heard of that. Have you heard of that? Yeah that was all part of the negotiations. Nfl TA fighting for more of that money. Were guys were getting checks this past week or so you know like I said they look up to three hundred thousand. Another guy picks up one hundred fifty. Didn't really then plan for it really necessary. They plan for but it was like telling a term touch return. That's always a nice. It's always a nice little. Have they suspended that yet? No I looked no. I'm not saying pushing it off. Ninety days had not state right. I haven't seen anything. I have officially look to it. Hasn't officially been announced its discussions are taking place and I think it's a ninety day but I only saw fed. I didn't see state. Yeah shut out all the teams by the way and athletes who are stepping up we right here in La in particular stepping-up up raising funds to help compensate for the people who are being able to work which was of major concern. We were talking about when this whole thing started was like what's going to happen to the vendors and the people who are depending upon these jobs to pay their rent. Charlotte to the Lakers and the chargers rams all put together fundraisers to help. Make sure that those people are taking care of this crisis absolutely There was something on television here a minute ago. Where even Roge- ski was on? And which was saying that the NBA is kind of pencilling out three different scenarios on how they might move forward number one is. We're done for the season number two is we're GONNA come back and we're GONNA play but we're not gonNA have any fans in there which again to to the people that you're talking about if there's no fans the staffing that you need in a building cut you know the eighty ninety percent. I mean if you don't need people to sell popcorn and cokes and and get through the doors then lock it would be the ideal place to do it right or you're not gonNa have fans anyway just so the practice facility. You can broadcast to play in the perfect practice facilities all around the league and just get the season finished off and then the third and final scenario would be. We're GONNA start the playoffs just more or less business as usual have fans we'll have full staff and just you know green light go. They need to figure. I mean it's gotta be figured out at some point. I think once we get some clarity on everything then they will have a plan in in coincide with that plan that we find out from the government. It's just it's just hard to imagine. Given all the things that have been preemptively cancelled and postponed. That runs into June at the League is going to be able just to pick right up with with people cheering and stands in. May well know is a lot of these leagues have done similar things before so they can bounce things off each other and the NFL has had to postpone and try to figure things out the NBA had to postpone lockout and get going in December. When I dated League year was Christmas so they these people are paying a lot of money to figure it out now with all of the examples that we're talking about here or win. One League has an issue okay and so the NBA is on lockouts. Okay we're not playing okay. We're planning. Let's figure this out but basically what we're talking about is everything is shutdown so with everything shut down number one you're not gonNa have the NBA comeback in the NHL. Not and we'RE NOT GONNA. They're all coming back at the same time. So you're talking about and I know that baseball teams and basketball teams. Don't share venues but you have all of these sports coming back at the same time. Just the logistics of cranking them all of the time attained asleep. Because you have to do them and John No one over here and not what you know but you know that these venues this is what they. Ag has four things happen at Staples Center one day This is what they do what they do. They know how to do that stuff like this. It's not the scheduling as much as just all the other logistics and again the question of Phantoms. Like if you're going to have fans than what is data look like how do you make sure that when you do reintroduce that you're not putting things to a risk because even if you were to say they introduce without knowing what Major League Baseball said what may at best at best passing was talking about? The he didn't play 'til after the All star middle of July. You can't I mean just right now. It just doesn't seem feasible when it was made with the Jeff says July concrete right now the only thing that's probably horn concrete is if I think is probably NFL because it's so far it's in September. That's the only thing I can think of. Yeah but again. They're not as big of a gap as you think it really because if we're talking about let's let's just make some up here let's say that the NBA and Major League Baseball MLS. Everything else is back up and running by August I. It seems like a business about right okay. So training camps opened August. I you basically have all of these things going on so if everything the NFL doesn't start there. The last ones to get started necessarily but because everything else needs to finish they may have to move back just because a wider. Because you have to fit everything in my training camp has nothing to do. Trysofi I come on. Tv thing. It's a it's an everything. Every single piece is in flux. But but some of it when you start talking about the television stuff. Monday night is Monday night. There's nothing else but now is in there could be. Nba Games going on there but the NBA game is not the NBA game on a Monday. Night we'll see. Nba Finals tonight usually goes on ABC. That's what I'm saying. Is You put that on. Abc Right you're going up the NFL is the NFL. Because it's King Kong right. It's the biggest league up against each other but okay so the ratings book I would imagine at some point because they're all kind of in this together we gotta scratch each other's back a little bit on this stuff if you if everybody tries to get going at the same point. I've got the NBA finals. I've got Monday night football. I've got the world series. I've got college football go. You can't have every single case in point so yesterday we talked about how you know. The the French Open was pushed back to right after the. Us Open well. They did that without contacting any of the players that were involved and more importantly they didn't talk any other tournaments and so now the big Scotto bull is. What the Hell Are you doing? We have all these other things already in place and you just unilaterally decided he just going to start something and you're blunt the whole schedule. You can't do that and that shows in a sport like tennis. Yeah you gotta imagine in the United States you know what it means and it sucks like we were talking about this earlier with high school kids. You know what means somebody's not going to get it exactly so something's just GonNa get cancelled. Not Everything's going to get fit in whether it's hockey. I never see hockey on regular TV. It is when the playoffs come around. I see in the NHL Network NHL Network. It's your it's your regional sports networks it's Ed's NBC sports. You'll be the only good thing is that maybe Taylor Swift won't be opening SO-FI GONNA get done. I got to get it done days is on. There's a great time lapse on The RAMS DOT COM if you're instead it's if it's pretty cool fascinating that thing go up in how they build the OCULUS too. Which is that scoreboard. They're going to have that. Hangs over the middle of the field. It's also got one like the Atlanta Falcons. Yes but it's different because it's on the inside and the outside so no matter where you're sitting you're going to be able to see it. It's pretty remarkable all right. The chargers need a quarterback is at the draft. Is it free agency is at a trade for Cam Newton? What are they GONNA do? That's coming up next morning. Show seven ten. Espn where were you? Travis win the day Jordan returned. You know what I don't know I wouldn't that one does not resonate with me. I remember hearing. I all cool. He coming back that and we're talking about what he went. Back to the Bulls right. Yes he said. I'm back on this day. In Nineteen ninety-five Michael Jordan. Unretired or return from baseball or just came back home. Yeah and that's that's a fun rock to look on the Internet right at. You read happened there. Do you think that he just decided? I want to go try baseball or is it something else. I think he decided he's going to try baseball after he was told he couldn't do something else. It's Kinda like it's Kinda like Cam. Newton you can explore other his trade because we signed somebody else already key. What do you think I think he wanted to do? Baseball just decided woke up one morning and said you know what I'd like to be a major league baseball player. I'm GonNa give that a shot. Yeah because because. Are you talking about the gambling stuff? I'm just talking about anything other than just because again this stuff he was. He was gambling after he came back. So I mean because everybody was saying that that was the whole thing on his dad was murdered. And there's there's a there's a lot going a lot going on but it just the greatest basketball player of all time just decided you know what I'm going to go ride the buses and the minor league that just it just doesn't add up to. I don't know what do you think about it though. Dues tire sometime. I'm carrying I'm just Wanna I'm going through some issues with my personal life and my wife and I you know I just WanNa take a break. Nita's do you remember where you were. Elsie. Because I in front of TV. Yeah it was Jordan dog and even from Detroit and I never wore a pair of Jordan's because I still hold that rivalry deer and clear my heart. The fact is it was Jordan in front of my TV. And I'll say ooh he stood. I dude look. He might win a championship. I was thrilled when he came back that time. Because you knew he still was that guy. It's when he left the second time it came back then I was like I was deal. No I got saved me now. Now you basketball share your retirement go but he came when he came back he came back fulla steak fool fool. Yeah so it wasn't like he came back you know he had been gone. He was also a now. We'll go play for the team. I got a little you know that was even I mean. He made his word at me. One of my favorite. Sorta what am I Jordan? Highlights all time when he blocked on mercer shot to Hannah backboard. We had never seen before. And it's funny. You say that because I have one image of wizard Michael Jordan in my head that are and it's when a I crossed him over nearly killed him. We'll look there's no shame and getting crossed over by Alan Iverson Allen over. When he was in Chicago I get it but it was one of those. Did you commissioner? I knew that he was doing just do them. I could Tom Brady. Brady going to the books now whether he win or not. It's okay if I win. Great if I don't okay so what you know what else happened. And I don't know the exact year but it was on this date. I heard it coming in today. Steve Nash beat Arizona in the tournament. A fifteenth seed in Santa Clara beat number two seeded Arizona and Arizona. Had A bunch of guys who are like oh NBA NBA Guy Nba Guy Nba Guy. And Santa Clara's this teeny tiny little Catholic school in San Jose. With who is Steve? Now who's asking eighty? Who's that Canadian Skinny White Kid? Had we known like? Well sure Steve. Nash just cooked him. I get it but we didn't know who Steve. Nash was tournaments. Always good for one of those and every now and then like a wallet. Serbia Akra pop out of nowhere. Go on while you zurve EAC out of a MAC school like I can remember. I can remember Gary Traffic draft biggest one of all staff. Yeah when Steph was at Davidson and took him to the elite eight. And you're like okay. We're done this. Is that going to work? Is that guy I mean I know the yeah? Obviously he can shoot. Obviously he's the son of an MBA player. But you're thinking he asked cool. It's cool but anyway we had no idea maybe we chose it. Can we knew he was gonNA work? But we didn't know he was going to win a chip by himself basically. Yeah we're like wait. Hold on now but at least it was a Kansas. Kudo that look right another name. Nobody important it's the same thing with Syracuse. I knew mellow because I know high school basketball in college basketball. You look at that. I'm good I know with Steph. No no no Steve. No daddy man but she didn't know he was going to do all it's Kansas but there was nobody else squad. You're you're a guy a dude official baseball. Ucsb you're a dude. There's there's just certain things that you can do programs if you go to Duke Straight Rhyme. So that's right Crosstalk Giordano coming up next crust quick George Sodano joint getting ready for this show this Donald. Show wiping down all his as he should be here in the modern twenty twenty ounce spray the clorox wives the Lysol more anti raw doctors. I I'm what I'm glad you slide that mic over here. When you show thank you I do good. I let us that one. You got to share that with Mason already. Maybe somebody should remind me. Let's let's just let's just keep that Mason and Ireland. Michael Thomson concluded our our spitters. Like there's a reason those microphones conclude is the evidence is All India. Plenty of evidence yellow film. All over keystones micro up and I can see it moving underneath tissue the tissue there. I don't know if it does much but we'll anywhere. Hardly use this plus. I'm not a spirit so it's nice and clean. Pristine Tom Brady as a Tampa Bay bucks. You feel George. I mean it makes sense. We talked about it yesterday right from a roster perspective that was a right fit for him not pretty much. The same roster is is is Almost Com San Diego chargers chargers chargers better skill position better receiver. I might Evans better than key now. And Yeah he is. He is because he's bigger. Yeah keene. Al is pretty good. But he's Williams coming into his all year. He's always hurt. Mike Williams another hurt come into his own a little bit. It's comparable I would say. Yeah I would say. Heidi ends Ikuta comparable. The track record for Arians is longer than it is for Lynn. Yeah Yeah I think that helps to and look he. Apparently according to Jeff Right. I heard on sportscenter. I don't know if he told you guys this too when he was on yesterday but Darlington said that the fact that the TB twelve businesses in New York and you know this key that flight from Tampa New York. He's done a million times a day and he's on private and he can be there in two hours of needs to do business son Sir. To which is God's who set a whole bunch of time makes all this is the world from a geographic. So He's there so. The chargers obviously were the other possible destination. But he's not coming here. Tyrod Taylor's on the TV. Rivers is in indy. Six picking the draft Cam Newton. There's a whole bunch of options so I heard this on one of these talk shows. That Giselle doesn't like La. Oh is that what it was true? She was like no Tom. No look that makes as much sense as anything else right if your wife is saying if you've got two things that are more or less the same former football these both worked for me which. I don't WanNa live okay. That's easy. Yeah you'RE NOT GONNA YOU'RE NOT GONNA pick. That fight wanted Florida. Yeah she wanted Miami or Tampa. It's easy allegedly. According to the talk shop. She's just go over to. Saint Petersburg and walk around stroll with a little Yak that Saint Petersburg now. You don't want to be known. People Saint Petersburg ask good in Tampa on Tampa coup strip install. He wants to. He wants to We don't been in Tampa is Tampa have a plan football so I do love the bucks. That's for sure. Good deal on a college town. He's trying he's trying to follow in your footsteps key bring a championship back to the Bucks. And he can do whatever he needs to do. I'll go to one or two games. I might be at the Super Bowl. Outside of that. Tampa is distant memory. Yeah James Winston though I think is interesting. The chargers surfers somebody right. I'll go james. They just got rid of Janus stay. Nba back. I think that's what I'm thinking. I'm thinking they're trying to convince him. Look you can learn from guy you could sit tight like teddy bridgewater did learn from Tom. Thomson GonNa be here two years in just bad circumstances rather bridgewater far different than Jameis Winston. How so because Teddy Bridgewater got hurt? Teddy Bridgewater? But I'm saying he learned as a young quarterback behind a veteran guy and he would teddy bridgewater has started Minnesota for one year. Is that what it was before he got hurt too was at two two? He gets hurt. You guys was ano- if you read to not so we're GONNA put James Winstons been the started therefore learn sign. Because there's nothing else if okay so if I'm not getting any run out in the open market in everybody's coming back could tell me the best thing to do economically this and I'm going to have to be a backup. I might as well be a back. Tom Brady and stay at home. If you're GONNA give you same number five I'm GONNA give you know. Here's a number. I'M GONNA GIVE YOU TEN A YEAR. Get Two years McGee twenty. But you're going to have to be in wherever that's not very good or you could stay here and I'm GonNa give you twenty or eight hundred ago. You can stay here in learn which one I got to go. I got to go. I cannot return home and everyone knows for eight games. Anyway I got benched. Yeah I mean that's what it is. You've been benched now. After Five seasons your bench for four little Dow. What's the diff doesn't make it a little bit more palatable that you got bench for Tom Brady get benched? You're Marcus Mariota. Coach said basically when wearing with this thing basically. That's exactly silk tie stranger things happen. You know what people gotta come back. We get killed. You SEE KISS. Forty two years yeah. That's what I'm saying. So now you gotta come back. Little Kissy Kissy Kissy. You just think. Sometimes I got a balanced I think. He's a starter. Still not start at George I do. I absolutely absolutely this is that I was talking about all of a sudden that the fact that you ask me do. I think he's started for. You even have to ask me. That question tells me you don't think he's a starter I waver and here's why let me finish this okay? The Guy has been a starter for five years in the League. He's had three or four different office coordinator. We went over the numbers with other quarterbacks just as many interceptions in five years all of those sorts of things. Yeah I think that we give him a little more of a bad rap. The thirty plus the early after plus everything for thirty then. He went through before he got into got driving himself in different. He didn't go through it. We didn't stuff in it. We know that. But I'm using the word. I'm use a different word actor. What is this? Just like management squinting since he was in college and he just got lacing now my work. Yeah so but here's the key to your point. Though we reminds me a little bit. A guy you played with vinny testaverde. Yeah all have been intercepted Birdie. Okay back into he's mart. He intercept avert sure does genus Winston have a second-half because Vinny Testaverde. It's a good example. Was the Guy Heisman. Trophy Number One. Pick and then. He got off to a terrible start. You're thinking this is a disaster. The Ravens in played better made a pro bowl and then play in the second half of his career. He was looked at as about a steady. A guys you can find. You need to find a guy. Come in and not screw in Winston ever going to be that but that's my porch coach up. You got a coach him up you just do you look at you. Look at Bruce Arians quarterbacks that he had his first year look at the empty interception rate gave you one example of course apartment through twenty. Two of them were dropped. Four here's it's you just gotTa You. GotTa give him an opportunity now. The opportunity is still a starter in the NFL. Depending on what team if he can't go to Miami is start down there. You know what I'm saying like it's like some you got Kenny. Go Push trubisky and eventually take that job in Chicago. Sure can he go to Denver it? Take that job. There's certain places where you say. Okay if I drop him in here he may be able to do it if a coach believes. I don't need him throwing the ball fifty times a Damn Game. You get thirty interceptions when you drop anything back. Fifty Times. Well you just do. This is the reason why I brought up the difference between stuff that he went through and stuff that he put himself into. Because because it's the ladder there's a question of maturation and just basic kind of I. Guess he he likes common sense and that's the thing is like if you combine search. How can you be coast up? If you've let commonsense sometimes common sense might be looks like Rotary Nice way of saying not smart enough to make sure you're showing key. Russell Wilson looks like one of the debars brothers down L. Bars coming up next tomorrow.

Starting right now and look has gotten up with us this morning making his maiden voyage with US cliff a rule is here today talking on a Oh bunch more. It's great to have you here. We should I noticed that farnum is the only one to get the note about wearing a tight end since July July summertime there. We're not we've evolved a good deal since I mean well we're still talking about the same thing and then stacked cots contract through a career high forty nine hundred two yards last year that was second in the NFL. Behind James Winston he came up one yard giant matching Tony Romo for the most in a single season and cowboys franchise injury and that wasn't all through a career high thirty touchdowns that was fourth in the league. Joined Romo as the only quarterbacks with thirty passing touchdowns in a season in cowboys history great and he had a total. QBR Of seventy point one. That was fourth in the sport. If the second time he has posted a quarterback rating of at least seventy in his career he had A. QBR Of over seventy seventy seven his rookie year. In case you're not familiar with QBR. Those are really really good numbers so begs the question. Why doesn't have a contract? Here's part of the answer from Cowboys President Steven the Jones. Talking about the franchise tag. Our goal is to avoid. We want to get a deal. We're GONNA roll up our sleeves and when these things get no mental they get done but both sides have got to be in a place place where we think we're within shouting distance of getting something done and it feels like since the beginning of this. I've been shouting at Dan. Graziano and your answers have remained the same but now the clock. Is You know we have a friend. Andrew Brandt who frequently says deadline. Spur actions well. This deadline is finally coming on this franchise tag but not soon. I hope I'm here today. He signs like to talk to me at this point. Look they have to do the franchise tag by March Tenth Right. They have a window to window there so I if nothing's done by March tenth they'll franchise him and if nothing's done by July fifteenth then he has to play out the Euro Franchise Tag. Something has to happen to make a move and it's not going to happen on February tenth. Unfortunately I if they get to the start of the off season program and he's is not there that could be an interesting flex point because the cowboys aren't allowed to require them to be there for voluntary workouts. They can't come out and say yes we want him here for the start of our program in April that would be against the rules because those workouts are voluntary. But if he doesn't show up for that that's an interesting point because that might let them know. Hey He's serious. He's trying to make a statement here that he he might dig in on this and that could prompt them to move in contract and so we talked to the brought their the time when they can franchise tag in mid March to mid July. Were then they wouldn't be able to negotiate the problem is that's where the entire offseason Greenie resides bringing a new coach. He's bringing in a new system has never played in west coast. It's going to be different terminology and outside of him learning it. You're going to craft the offense to what your quarterback does well with Aaron Rodgers for ten years. It's not like he knows DAK Prescott the INS and outs of what he's going to do this thing for six months and all of a sudden illness I say. Hey that's back. This is figure out what he does in the movie. The going on the season okay. You were French ranch. You had the franchise tag put on you before. Obviously it's different for a quarterback your experience and then why it's different for a quarter exactly. It's completely different for quarterback for myself I got friends is is running back gets franchise your linebackers get franchise. The off season program will continue without you. Yes you're part of the team but for a quarterback you need him there the day one and it's extremely important that they haven't because the leadership piece of a new system. New Coast are certain. McCarthy signed that contract he knew or thought his quarterback would be their day went to develop develop and bring. These guys alone cannot go a whole offseason without having a quarterback where you were telling us this morning that when you got the franchise tag you weren't unhappy about it. And what did you expect to happen after after you signed it. I was initially but then I expected it sounded long-term deal expected to be with that organization the following what actually happened I left and went to one of. That's the point. These things tend to take a turn and so the question is rule. They approach a point where return needs to be taken. I we all act as though this thing is going and happened but far stranger things have happened than one way or another Dak Prescott not being in Dallas next to shore. I still think it's very unlikely I I think he's the cowboys quarterback for this year and for the future. That is still their plan and his but yeah you get to who flexes their leverage I their leverage is a franchise tag we will put the franchise tag on on you. That's going to be twenty seven million dollars if you're looking for thirty five thirty six thirty seven. This is a lot less. Let's meet in the middle. His leverage point is maybe I won't show up for the started. Take off season program. I don't have to especially if I'm franchise. I don't even have to go to training camp. Yeah so how much is he willing to do that. And call their bluff big. We'll have a minute here. What I've never had cliff answer is how do you think he is when you look at the quarterbacks in the NFL we talked about him Ad Infinitum on this program? But I've never heard in your opinion. Is he an elite quarterback or is he going to become an elite quarterback in the NFL. Undeserved Aso's guys. I think he is an elite quarterback. One one thing and Bob you know this you'll get so let me at a bite of the apple a new contract right so you have to take advantage of this. He's played his best season last year. The record didn't necessarily show that but for him in particular he's growing every year. And that's what you want to see from a young quarterback you WanNa see him grow you want to see the growth in him and become the leader of their football team. That's what he's become so I don't think he's one of the top five guys is in the NFL but if he's from five to ten you can win the Super Bowl. He played like that this year. He's a really tremendous leader. Which is why you need him there during the off season to provide that leadership? If he's not there during the off season I like Dallas is probably the two or three favorites out of the NFC to potentially contend for the Super Bowl. If he doesn't show up until training camp you have to completely change indoors odds yeah that's the end of the season and one of the things too is. There's a new offense that they'll be implementing. We'll talk about that later on this show but one of the biggest questions heading into this offseason is weird. Tom Brady Eighty will end up. Signing Michael Irvin was on W. E. in Boston recently discussed very interesting possibility of the cowboys. Trading Dak Prescott in signing Brady Brady. Here's what Irvine said for Bowl in Miami. It's a very significant people and I had some conversations meaning in that same director and it was softening. I mean I had had a walker tributary my head and where they said to me. I put the drink down. Let's talk a little bit more okay. Irvine went on twitter Sunday to clarify those comments. He said I never said Jerry or anyone in the organization said this to me. It was not not anyone with the Dallas cowboys. First of all Dan. Do you see this happening at all. Okay no longer. Rei National Treasure have a podcast. Cranberry with Michael Irvin and talk this over more but I think think it's look clarifies. It didn't come from the Dallas Cowboys. That's a pretty important clarification on the cowboys organization. And they're saying that that's one. Think think everything's GonNa be all over the map with Tom Brady until he reaches a decision on where he's going to play it. It's not bad for the Dallas Cowboys and Jerry and Steven Jones. As if this is out there right I mean talk about leverage right at Dak Prescott has said they might replace me with Tom. Brady maybe that it's all about who. How pushing the guy toward you? Ah in the negotiation but in terms of Brady I think this would be shocking. I believe the Dallas Cowboys plan is for Dak Prescott to be their quarterback and I don't think that this is something that's is being talked about at any serious level in their building absolutely. I think that's a long term play but Jerry didn't get to where he is in life by not exploring every opportunity every possible option and so I wouldn't surprise me if he would kick the tires on this. It's only going to help their leverage. And then let's just say for instance that he does go. THEY'RE READY TO MOVE DOWN TO DALLAS. Take the whole studio downtown cover governor. Tom Brady as a Dallas. Cowboy equals ratings bonanza. He's the one thought that I have on this because we look at Brady as well. This is a wide open thing. He hasn't made up his mind yet and I am reminded of is after Lebron Lebron's D. Wade and Chris Bosh all came together in Miami sometime thereafter became out. They had decided that two years before Lebron going to the Lakers was decided at least a year in advance Kevin durant going to the nets was decided way in advance. We had people inside. We all know this people inside telling us. Oh He's going to Brooklyn Lock Stock and barrel moms before it happened so why I should. I believe that Tom Brady. Who was as meticulous with this sort of thing as any human weeds? Avocado ice cream is going to look into this process wide open. I don't buy hi that for one second. I believe he knows what he's doing. I don't think he's one hundred percent from what I understand. I think he knows the landscape. I think he's he knows who's going to be interested. And he may have. I have an idea in his head. This is where I'm probably going to end up but in the NFL you have to know what the team's GonNa look like. There are other decisions. These teams are making the Patriots. The chargers the raiders. Whoever it is? It's going to be in. The Tom. Brady market are making other decisions on how their team is going to be constructed and Tom Brady. He's GonNa WanNa know how those decisions shakeout before he decides where he's is going to go. So I I get your point and I think you're you're more right than not First of all it's illegal for him to have contact with these teams until March sixteenth. Oh right but we all we all know that. Sometimes these deals come together shocking when free agency opens. But I think we're still at a fairly early point in the process says even though we're talking about five six weeks or now where he probably will be signed with someone well. I think first and foremost Tom. I don't see him leaving right because we all no not again. You know how hard it is to play a Lotta time in his. NFL below long But to play on one organization for a long time right I played ten years play for two organizations. That's like that's huge right. But Tom Brady has been with one Organization for twenty years. I feel like that throws off that legendary story right there. The story of mad plan for one organization bring a championship shift. And if you look at what Tom has done in Boston. TB twelve his workout. Facility is next door to their practice facility like nobody's nobody's leaving all that behind. Go play somewhere else and especially for the cowboys. It is the cowboys. You're talking about two two year rental for Tom. Brady you have Dak Prescott. Who could probably be there for the next ten years I? I don't think that's a good business loop I always you look at this to dovetail kind of what you said Greenie. There's probably a couple of different places but different than the NBA. Something like Tom Yourselves to call one or two two guys to get them to go. Yeah It's coaching staff had to figure out what was going on in New England. Who is going to be where it's going to be scheming? System fits where he's going to probably need to sit down if if he wants to go play for Jon Gruden. Can we blend your version of the West Coast. Which is what I've always done? Because that's a very unique Dan Graziano didn't he fight like crazy to get this into his contract. The ability an unrestricted free agent without being able to franchise him months and months ago. So the notion that he just woke up the day after they got eliminated dated by Tennessee and said well now. I'm a blank slate. I don't buy that at all. No but I mean Adam Schefter was sitting in probably this very chair and maybe October Komo going down saying this brings into the possibility that he would go somewhere else. My understanding the situation. Tom Brady is eager to be a free agent and pick his next destination. I'm I'm not saying you're wrong. I'm saying I'm not one hundred percent sure that it's one hundred percent set. He has some other things he needs to figure out before he did. You always want options right. I think that's why he put that clause in there is you want options. Want to be able to rea- The market is completely different from what it was a year ago. Tom Brady thinks especially. We won the Super Bowl this talking about forty million a year you know so oh you what those options as far as for contract standpoint to be able to get out of it if you're play at a high level to be able to get more money we'll see what happens in the meantime coming up with stand up rookie year Baker Ager Mayfield had anything but a stand out season last year as a sophomore twenty nineteen posting the worst touchdown to interception ratio when the sport and his team went six and ten Stephen Smith Smith for one thing cannot believe people are making excuses for listening to Steve. What the Hell is all this stuff? The massaging Baker Mayfield. What have you done? You go twenty two touchdowns twenty one interception. The bottom line is this he can play. I'm not knocking Baker Mayfield. I know he's not a scrub. But my God to sit up there and the soak up all that act adulation and to produce so little and for folks to have this insatiable triple appetite to continue to support him. What are you going to do next? Put a path to fight back. Ah I'll tell you at. Three general manager is going to support their quarterback up until the point that they don't and if you look at Tennessee coming in mortgage snow. Yoda was that a guy. You'll get the bucks Jameis. Winston was the guy she was pregnant. Their guy going forward in Murrieta got benched in week six and so he had to come in Berry had to say this about him he was going to join to support him. And if you look at this that's the way that they can justify. Hey he said two coaches in two years offensive line was where he needs to be. He was getting sacked. There were ton of issues that were outside of his control and so with that. Now I'm the guidance. Given come in and stabilize this build the Ross around and give them a stable coaching staff and then also also you'll you could put some of that success back into the front office. That's that's all. The say is make debt quarterback comfortable. He has to stay in rave about him to make Kim comfortable to go into that locker room. During the off season and lead the charge I've never seen a GMC BASS You know their quarterback going into the space so yes you have to do that but what I do think they do need to bring is another veteran quarterback to apply little pressure to Baker. Mayfield to make sure that he does take those those strides and get better as a player but more so than the anything is as a leader. That seem realistic to you Dan. I think it's realistic. Given what the veteran quarterback market looks like this year is going to be some pretty accomplished guys that are probably going to have to settle for backup jobs jobs and might be okay with a role like that. This this whole thing reminded me of a conversation. I Have Jon Gruden a couple of years ago. A training camp when it was his first year back in Oakland and he said you know everything that did I say and everything that comes out of this organization has to be upbeat and positive about Derek Carr because we need to make sure he's in the best possible position to succeed so this is not what Andrew Bury's doing is not not unusual and it's not wrong but look Baker Mayfield has two more years left on his rookie contract. They have the fifth year option. That it's too soon to know about this twenty four year old and so you say to coach. He's about to have his fourth different. NFL head coach and he's going on third season. That's the only time I can remember for an office. Not backing their quarterback. DOC was the Washington redskins with kirk cousins and everybody knows what they're talking trash back and forth in the media. It's so when you see this everybody's going to support report guys. Because if they don't who else is going to I actually think it can be really good for Baker to have a backup that could push him a little bit. But I think too. I mean a lot lot of it's GonNa be on him to really be that guy that we saw in Miami who was contrite apologetic for the way that he had acted last year. I think that's a big part of it. No matter what I think he just needs is to play better his rookie year. He showed he had a little magic. And then it is remarkable. What happens when hope turns into expectation and going from seven wins rookie year? They won seven games as a rookie. That was a remarkable accomplishment for a team that had been Owen sixteen year before and then last year winning six games with the additions that they made all of a sudden was a disaster. A He needs they need to get a better offensive line. They need a better head coach. We'll see if the new guy they bring in is a better head coach. There were a lot of things that have gone on around Baker Mayfield did he fits perfectly into the box that I have laid out many times. More good young quarterbacks are ruined in the NFL then developed last year. They were a lot of things going bad in Cleveland. He was only one of. I think you're absolutely right. And it's important for people remember that Andrew Berry the new. GM was a part of that Cleveland. Front office when they drafted Baker Mayfield. So it's not as if he has no connection to the pick pick. Okay more on football coming but some sneaky big news from the NBA. Yesterday despite watching a Lakers game courtside with Jeanie Buss last week veteran guard Darren in college and has reported reportedly decided to remain retired will not return to the NBA The season. Here's what Ramona Shelburne. Brian Windhorst had to say last week. After the Lakers decided decided to stand pat at the trade deadline. They were very focused. A not disrupting their culture. Not Disrupting this this brotherhood that they built not just over the course of the season but especially so in this last week the best lock in the NBA which you do you guys relate to each other you can tell it. The RAMONA's describing is important. And I don't know what I would if I was rob Pelinka because I still feel like the Lakers are a player short. Sean Farnum here at shine. Let's just ask him listen. We brought knowledge the Confetti move on there so anyway are the Lakers. Good enough as constructed instructed to win the Western Conference and maybe more well I I would say about this Erin call situation with his decision to not play in the NBA. If the title hopes hopes for the Lakers hinged on Darren Collison playing for them. I think that we'd have much larger concerns. The Lakers title hopes rest onto people shoulders. Anthony Davis Miss Lebron James Period. If they're healthy if they're at their best they have a legitimate chance to win the championship. This breaking news. We've been talking about it since they. This was Paul announced. This whole thing was coming together. So they're the most talented duo in the NBA. They have the ability to take over and win a championship. Yes the concern becomes the management aspect of the rest of the season. And how much you're requiring out of them on a night out basis. Well are they requiring too much of them. Because I understand that Darren Collison and or any other one individual piece marcus. Morris might not be the difference in May but is it the difference in getting them there so that when they get to the postseason. They're not exhausted because Kawhi Leonard is watching as many games he plays these days. I think it could be and I think that you asked me earlier this morning. If you had to bet your house would you bet your house at the Lakers are GonNa win the NBA title. And I no I would. Not if I had to bet my house on a team. It would be the clippers and I think the big data have changed. The Lakers got Marcus Morris. Instead of the clippers know what did it change if they had gotten Darren Collison. No is there anything they could or could have done. That would change that. No not not not when what was available during the streets and dion waiters. It's not going to change it. If they dion waiters. I I think when you look at the the clippers. The reason why I'm so went on the clippers is that you have the best defensive guards in the Patrick. Beverley Kawai Lender Paul all Georgia talking about Leonard. Who had the most unbelievable playoff run that we've seen since maybe Michael Jordan and then you look at their bench? Their bench actually leaves the NBA in points rebounds and minutes. It's productive. It's really good. It's allowing them to stay healthy. It's allowing them to manage their way through the regular season so that when it gets to play playoff time. That's when you can take over and I think that's the focus obviously for both these these two teams and look if if the Lakers get the best overall record in the western conference and the clippers of the two seat. Guess where they're playing in the western conference funds on building and their own bill. They're not gonNA seven your home games as a matter how you slice it. It doesn't make a difference. What makes the difference is are you? You going to be healthy in particular. Those two guys and Ken Coli Leonard and the depth of the clippers outlast him come June. I'll say this. I like the Lakers. I would definitely bet your house is on them Jackson and Patrick Mahomes are the last two. MVP's in the NFL who win next year. One of those guys are somebody new. We got twenty twenty vision to look ahead and Philly fans not always the most forgiving. What Joel embiid and said last night may test that in a huge way but was he right find out next on? Espn how do you judge someone. Not by what they say by what they do. We're a nation of doers. What's Mike Bloomberg about doing things?

We'll tell you all the things that are going to happen in the NFL. Plus what will the Patriots do with Tom. Brady does move on and did you watch the. XFL This weekend with some things the NFL NFL could learn from what they saw while. Answer those questions after Graziano tries to answer this one here. We go from sneaky Hembo. Who is the oldest quarterback to win a game in the Super Bowl era? Any Game Tom Brady will be forty three when next season begins. That's the question. Dan has got the answer next at IBM problems. Inspire us to push the world forward. That's why so many people work doc with us on everything from city traffic to ocean. Plastic smart loves problems. Ibm Let's put smart to work visit. IBM DOT com slash. SMART to learn more. You're the tension in the studio. was thick sneaky Hembo versus Grazziano. Here we go. Tom Brady will be forty three years old next year. Who was the oldest quarterback to win a game in the Super Bowl? I gotta say I don't know but it takes a village sometimes right. We were talking a lot in the break about who. It might be getting a lot of help last time. I didn't listen to Bobby Carpenter. I got it wrong so this time. I'm going with his suggestion. Saying Steve Burke I thought his suggestion was vinny testaverde which the correct answer the answer. Two weeks all the time. Joy in the face of Paul hembekides lives. That is a great moment for him. I was sitting right there. I thought Bobby said Vinny Testaverde in the Burgh was the first thing so we do better looking forward than you did looking backwards the whole thing we call twenty twenty vision looking ahead to next year Grazziano. First one is for you where Tom Brady GonNa play in two thousand twenty once again. I don't know but my pick is loss Angeles chargers. I just think it's is that important for them to get him in there. Sell some tickets in that La Stadium. I think he's got a chance to make a final run with them. They have a good enough Ross going to pick the charges but again it's suggests next. Stop Bobby Carpenter will Dak Prescott play week one for the cowboys. Yes because if not they might be trying to recite Vinny Testaverde and AH in the future Jerry. Jones knows that he is the key. There's a lot of posturing right now. There's no way that he is not out there for the start of the season. Is The Dallas cowboys. Starting starting quarterback come twenty twenty twenty twenty vision Grazziano who will be the national football league's. MVP next year. We had to do the survey. I've picked Carson Wentz. I'm trying to go off the board here. Pick a super bowl that that might not have been picked inside the eagles in there something Carson wentz stays healthy again and cashes in on that talent and some improvements to the eagles roster may the heat the MVP. I liked that a lot and said wherever he is Dan. Orlovsky is cheering right now. Bobby name a team. That missed the playoffs this past year. That makes it next year. The Neapolis call to kind of a couple years ago really good. They had all off season or more with their quarterback position. Jacoby did a pretty good job. He was good not great. Philip rivers is out there. I can see a piece slides. The team goes from seven wins. Potentially the ten or eleven in the south. That seems like it's always churning in the AFC you know it's funny because when that question came up the I thought I had was of the Patriots now it might seem ridiculous. The notion that the Patriots would not be in the pls.. But if Tom Brady is not their quarterback it's not exactly clear to me what the Patriots are and it seems they would be at a crossroads. The likes of which they have not faced in twenty years Dan Graziano. They could go one of of two ways with the oldest roster in the national football league. Let me say that again the oldest roster in the national football league if Brady signed with the chargers the titans the wherever he winds up going does bellichik. Do they start over again from scratch or do they go out and try and plug that hole with a veteran quarterback and try and win it again. I I think it's a very real possibility that they start a rebuild because the patriots rebuild all the time anyway people just don't really notice it constantly. Changing the offense shuttling personnel l.. In and out and Brady's been the constant as you say for twenty years. He's not there. I think what you have is a real rebuild around question market quarterback for the first time time in a couple of decades because they they need they need to get younger on defense as we know they need to get more pieces on the offensive side of the ball in terms of the skill positions. So I think the Brady doesn't come back and possibly even if he does. The Patriots have to start thinking about the future and the long term with a lot of their move the clip. You played a good chunk of your career. We're in Detroit and one of the possibilities that has come up here. Based upon a variety of history is the notion that the Patriots might try and Trade for Matt Stafford. Would you you if you were advising bill and he called you which would be an upset but it would never go belcher called Jefferson cliff if Brady leaves what should I do. What would you advise him to do? I I don't think staffers. The PIG is not a bad pick. Either I just think the rebuilding for sixty seven year old sixty zero coats is completely different. Yes they have a lot of turnover a year and a year. You're out but the consistent piece was always Tom Brady it now. You throw Tom Brady. Now you gotta bring another quarterback here from a different system. KINDA got tatum. The game all over again because has coaching Tom. Brady is completely different from coaching any other quarterback in the NFL. Because Tom Brady knows how to run. Everything brings new quarterback in. I don't know bill is up for this child. chows at the age of sixty eight. That's you bring up sixty seven sixty eight at the start of the season. He's not Tony Dungy. He's not built. Howard Bilbo a check to me is an NFL life or he will coach as long as his body is allowing him to do it? In the term rebuild gets around a lot. I think it's GonNa probably like retooling. I can see them going after Teddy Bridgewater. There's a veteran guys who's younger. who still has a long runway in front of them and they slowly build this offense around him because I think he wants to coach into a seventy two win after Tom? Tom Brady leaves and because of all those things I think he doesn't WanNa ever bottom out and go four and twelve. What fifty five away from Don Shula's record for wins? I think that probably going to live seasons for him as well so five seasons very Tom. Brady's night there's it's not is it was for anybody else. That's the point real the Patriots all of a sudden. Come back back to Earth without the greatest quarterback of all time that that really is the question. I agree with that and also I think the big piece as well is pride right. Try A to show that you can do it without. Tom would be a big thing as well right. Because that's been the whole thing they've been together for so long can can one win without the other. So the pride of try to rebuild and go the other quarterback show that it was me and that Tom could possibly play a role as well. And let's not forget this in two thousand eight without Tom Brady. He started the the first game tours. ACL They went eleven five. It's not like this is unprecedented for him to have a season without that man of quarter down. Eleven with Matt Cassel. They missed the playoffs because the way the thing a structured sometimes does that but they won games that year all right once again this year we will have coverage from the NFL Scouting Combine Lucas Oil Stadium February twenty seven through the first of March. NFL Live live reports that week on ESPN NFL network will have their usual full coverage as well all of our coverage is also available on the ESPN APP so you could watch from anywhere get to the NBA Greenie. Joel embiid. And the seventy sixers hosting the Bulls. We're going to pick this up with Sean Farnum in the second quarter sixers seven Annan but not doing well for embiid early shocked miss then. The other miss and frustrate constant Philadelphia hasn't been talking about that a little bit lately. I've I'm just a little bit. We're glad that you're a fan of the show here. The frustration would continue you. See Zach Levine. Hey the sixers fan. Didn't like get Sean Sean Sixers Dell three. We'll be back in case you couldn't hear that that was the fans booing there at home. Fourth quarter now denied at eighty-three. And maybe the booze got to Joel. embiid starts to play better as you get a little upset you score and when you start to make an impact on the court you see him here he's GonNa make another impact. They're able to slam back down with authority in bead running back on defense. Watch him putting the finger up to his lips. That would become a theme under a minute to play sixers by five shot winding down and Simmons fines and be heat hits that three. Check him out a kid. He's still got Shishen going. Shirley temples for everybody. That's what he said. Exactly the sixers winning Joel embiid. Why the shushing in Shirley Temple's just talking to myself Not been play up to my standards so even it just mad at myself so just got frustrated. I don't care I look. I'm just playing basketball. You know it's gone back to myself you know just been a plan basketball and just trying to dominate. Thank you and thank you okay. So here's the thing in beads been saying these last couple of weeks. Get Back to himself. If that's what he is a guy that's gonNa shish his home crowd. How is that going to play for him? They're talking about well in Philadelphia. Has that ever played welfare. Anybody in Philadelphia. I think so. Look this team is is is a big disappointment and I it made reference to it. You guys have been talking about this for weeks on this show. But when you're talking about the Philadelphia Seventy sixers. They're the only team in the NBA with four one hundred billion dollar contracts on the roster and when all four those players are out on the floor actually minus three this year and plus minus. So they're not getting the production there good individual players. They're good pieces The bigger problem for this team right right now is the lack of leadership When you look at Joel Embiid and you look at Ben? Simmons even going back to their time in college. They weren't the leaders of those teams. And even though maybe in Ben's case he I should have been the leader of Lsu basketball he he. He wasn't when they lost Jimmy Butler they lost a guy could could grab you by Your Jersey. Get your face and really bring you back to where you needed to be. I think the loss of Jj Rennick has hurt them but the outside shooting this. This team hasn't played like a team that is capable of winning the Eastern Conference Conference and I don't think they're pieces are on this route from her makeup to make a run like that. It's interesting 'cause feels like so much of it. Goes back to Jimmy Butler and not having him around. Obviously he's contributing well for the heat right so when you think about the complaints that some of the guys who had embiid said spacings in issue doesn't it what the offensive identity is. You said you're not sure with this current contract they can make a really nice run the place but what can they do to try to get a little bit more because I do think playing with that edge is important and I think Joel embiid and what he's alluding to their. Hey like I'm I've got to get my edge back to my game and anytime as a player you feel comfortable. I think you lose that edge and subsequently you lose your level of success when when you have that chip on your shoulder good things can can more often happen all right more basketball from SEAN foreign on this.

This is the biggest auction. It is the most anticipated title fight in recent history undefeated heavyweight champ deontay wilder taking on unbeaten Tyson feary rematch. The world has been waiting for live on paper. View February twenty-second nine eastern getting on. ESPN plus meanwhile the NFL Wayne. Haskins is rookie. Season was defined by inconsistency but he did get better as the season went on and his last two starts threw four touchdowns without a pick with the seventy three out of one hundred the team's senior. VP of player development is Doug Williams and he had this to say quote quote. Haskins was doing what we expected to do. He was ascending. Hopefully the way he goes now he keeps going up. All eyes are going to be on him at the same time. You've got a new coaching staff. And they're not married married to him. Looking at Graziano is face. What what what what? What was that expression there? There's more to that coach before that there were more positive about Haskins but yeah this is what new coach Ron Rivera has been cleared. He has said we need to see out of Dwayne Haskins may need to see him grow as a leader. We need to see him grow as as a producer. We have other veteran options that we could go with in the meantime so yeah I think not married to him as key here right. I mean Rivera's in charge there now. He didn't draft Haskins. He needs to see certain things from him. I think the key is the owner was very involved in the decision to draft Wayne Haskins and I think doing is going to get every opportunity in part as a result of that but also based on what he showed toward the end of last year. So interesting situation there for sure as we've been discussing very interesting veteran quarterback market this off season if they want to go a different direction Alex Smith still on that roster and hasn't given up hope of returning to the field so it could be the fascination situation in Washington with Dwayne Haskins. First thing. You said it's the most important dance not loves them and last time I checked still signing all the checks the second most thing most important I've heard said about this is them trying to bring Trent Williams back their starting left. Tackle Duane Haskins. He's not collar. Murray running around and so you have to find a way to protect him in the pocket. Draft some weapons around him. I thought I think Ron Rivera doesn't like it. But Ron Rivera is one of more old school coaches in the NFL were they just. Don't hand out starting jobs. You'RE GONNA come in here your especially at the quarterback position you're going to earn it. You'RE GONNA earn it from the veterans. You'RE GONNA earn it from the coaches because I think he's a young guy that's out and let's not also forget this. He's only started about about twenty games in his career in college in the NFL. Yeah I mean that's the point that I think is really important here. This guy showed a lot of skill a lot of talent into Ryan Day at Ohio state and it was enough to get him drafted in the first. Some people thought he would go a lot higher but he just doesn't have a lot of experience cliffs so he's in a situation where every single time that we're seeing him he's learning on the fly and having to do it on a really big stage is I think they have to give them a fair shot though right because he has weapons around him he he has one of the arguably probably one of the best offensive tackle sitting on the bench not happy with the medical staff. He doesn't have any weapons around so give him a fair shot actually been able to go out there and be productive. I do think him not not playing last year was early on in the season was huge because it allowed him to see the speed of the game and allow them to understand how the NFL works but again he doesn't has. It had that many game reps even from college. He doesn't have that many game reps to actually go out there and so what he has. But give a real Chad guys with it. Has Long been my contention that far more young quarterbacks in the NFL ruined then developed. And I sincerely hope that has not already happened to Duane Haskins. But if you wanted to look up a perfect kicked method to ruin a young quarterback. You couldn't do it any better than they've done it from the moment. They drafted him when everyone on planet Earth wanted to make it clear. The coaching staff didn't want him but they they didn't get rid of the coaching staff. Then they waited until five or six games into the season to do it so that everyone knew he was the object of this tug of war between ownership and the head coaching. Then then he's in there he's not in there now. They're married to them. They're not married to him. We just said Cleveland. What can you say except build him up? Jon Gruden what can you say except build him up Washington. We're not married yeah. They didn't want him in the first place. Yeah and if you didn't want him you shouldn't have taken him because that's a kid with a lot of talent to obviously needed to be developed. Laura just pointed out he played wait so little football. It's ridiculous and what they are doing is the definition of how to ruin a young player. Bobby said is not that Ron Rivera doesn't like him. The appointed Ron Rivera doesn't know him and they're starting from scratch. This new coaching staff is starting from scratch with this quarterback who played about half a season last year. And they'll see what they can build off of that Muss starting him at the beginning of the Year you fire the coaching staff and everything goes up in the turmoil but he didn't have the opportunity to go out there and failed early on so he comes in. He wasn't viewed as the problem. People looked looked at him as maybe part of the solution did a much better job in the second half of the year so he can build on that I agree with you that they almost have destroyed. This kid's career. It's going to be critical for him. Let's get back on track. Let's get to another big story coming out of the weekend the debut of the XFL. This was so much fun. Hope he got to tune in heading into the season a lot have been made of some of the unique unique rules. The League implemented including the kickoff got a ton of attention on social media and around the League when it kicked off on Saturday. And here's what you need to know about the kickoff in the XFL you see it on video there but the kickoff has to be kicked in play between the twenty yard line in the end zone if not the ball is placed on the forty five yard line. The the kicking and return team will line up just five yards apart at the thirty and thirty five yard line and will not be able to move until the returner field to kick. So we'll get to that in just a a little bit but I wanna get you guys as reactions to seeing the XFL first of all my favorite thing about it was the access. You're you're actually talking to players and coaches as it's happening you're seeing coaches coach's call plays from the sideline you're even in the locker room at halftime really really cool to see. That's fantastic. Yeah I was traveling here on a bunch of people asking me about it which lead me to believe number one. They're watching the advertiser intently watching because they're talking about the tweets with the NFL adopted. And I think people are enjoying watching the kickoffs. It's one of the most exciting place in all of sports. They're bringing back they're making king. It's safe and if you watch that clip to there and tell you that's how you operate kickoff late in the season during during practice you guys running fifty yards. They're tired they're beat up. And so you know what we're GONNA do. A mini field is what they do there and you still have the opportunity now for those explosive plays that everybody wants to see and and I think I I think the biggest thing with the the. XFL Is going to be. Hopefully people can get used to the new rules and not come off as a gimmick. That's going to be huge right because you know it. Plus they've cut a stereotype in the past as well but overall the reception has been great. I think over Three three or four million people watched the opening day but they also did that with the. AFL The A. F. League as well so next week the following week we'll be the crew determined the broadcast deals. They have right now are very different with us and with Fox from what the AFL L. had. Here's what I'll say about the access piece. I liked what I saw. I watched some of it this weekend. I didn't watch a ton of it but I watched it and I think some of the innovations and football are great. The access stuff is terrific terrific but that is not what carries a league. That's like offering me free something. I don't want him to I if I don't want I'm not suggesting I don't want I'm saying if I if I'm not interested the football then the the idea that I have access to all this stuff I wouldn't otherwise. Have I think only carries you so far. Having said that the football was good was comparatively good and some are these innovations like the way they do the extra point to be completely honest with you. I kind of like the way your extra point better than the way the NFL does the extra point now. Moving the extra point back to where the kick is no longer a lock anymore. I think has kind of skewed things in the numbers of football that. We're not meant to be skewed if you're going to do that. Go all the way and I kind of like this and I love the kickoff. That is the way the kickoff stays in pro football because otherwise it was five years away from being out of the NFL entirely if that and obviously the reason NFL doesn't like the kickoff is because of the high speed collisions. When you're going full speed from the moment of the kick and there were more concussions on that play than any other by far so they've eliminated eminating that aspect of it? Look it's one weekend. We'll see how these innovations hold up but obviously very intriguing. When you talk about the kickoff you talk about the point after touchdown plays? I mean. There's some interesting stuff that I'm sure. We'll get disgust in some. NFL meetings over the coming months and we will talk a little later. As well about the transparency they had in their replay reviews which I taught got a lot of attention as well next big Monday doubleheader on ESPN and the ESPN APP tonight in the ACC.

We are back with my favorite athlete of all time right this second and it was senior day Jackson State last night. Final minute of their blowout win. That's there in student manager. His name is Thomas Lee is nicknamed snacks. Talk like hurts you. The first time he ever got into a game right and look at the nickname my name though. I give you back to get up coming to you as always live from above the Heineken rejected peers seventeen. We'RE JAM PACKED IN YEARS. The menu for our number two. It's time to get up with the NFL draft with potential huge change near the top. One quarterback sores another falls. Mcshea has it all for you. He's next then. Tom Brady doesn't need to mull over his options. We're doing it for you. Dan Calls you the best and worst places. He could wind up and then. His team is heavily favored and heavily injured at the top spot for manager how we have a global and domestic crisis the corona virus has impacted more than fifty countries across the globe including the US. It's spreading threatening public health and impacting our economy. Mike Bloomberg knows how to deal with a crisis. Bloomberg led New York City after the nine eleven. Terrorist Attacks. Steadying unshaken city. He saw the city through health epidemics and natural disasters. Other candidates can talk about leading. Mike is done it time after time. There's a lot to like about Bloomberg. He's a job creator. Expanded healthcare fought for gun safety against climate change pro-choice but the big thing that sets him apart. Bloomberg can handle the challenges that threaten the economy or health. Our planet the ones where we need a president to manage who could make the right decisions of president that can lead us through. That's the Bloomberg difference and right now that feels more important than ever. I'm Mike Bloomberg candidate for president. And I approve. This message paid for by Mike Bloomberg. Twenty twenty geico presents left brain versus right brain after much deliberation. I've decided we should switch to GEICO. Hey sounds good to me. We could save hundreds of dollars on car insurance which now just blue sky in here. We can reinvest those funds into my business idea. Not this again. I get some investors on board. Nobody is going to invest in dental floss. Made of Turkey jerky okay. Not with that attitude. Wow GEICO fifteen minutes could save you percents or more. We're back on. Get up in the last pass of Tom. Brady season was a pick six and the Patriots wildcard loss to the titans was it. The last passive is Patriots career. We're GONNA find out we'll all morning long. We've had dental going through the pros and cons of different places. The Tom Brady may go. And let's go to the team that knocked him out of those playoffs in Tennessee Tennessee. The first thing is you get to go chases Super Bowl Championship and one of your best friends. You know guys. Don't do facetime other guys unless you have planned to do something. Big For the relationship with Mike is a big deal second. This is an offense and a football team. That is focused on the run. They're not GONNA ask. Tom Brady dropped back forty five times. I can use that to do and win football games to the air and then the third thing is this is good weapons rookie. Aj Brown a thousand yard receiver. John Smith young tight end thirteen yard catch and then member Adam Humphreys. Who's the slot received for the title? The Titans is actually the slot receiver that the Patriots and Tom Brady. Tried to go get last season but lost outcome so a lot of good things with Tennessee. Now the cons. It's a small market. Tom Brady played at the University of Michigan. Big Market he played at the New England Patriots. Big Market. This is the small market. Is He looking for that? With a TB twelve grand and then the reality is this. If you pay. Tom Brady the money that a lot of people are saying. He's commending you can't keep Derrick Henry Belco Beck and you probably can't keep your right tackle Jack Constantly. Neither so that offense vying is a little bit weakened. If you're going to pay brady all the money he wants this. This is the best realistic fit for Tom Brady well. Let's talk about the money piece of this with Henry. Because Brady is a guy who has famously taken last now. I know everyone says he's not going to but if I'm Tom Brady. I don't WanNa go to Tennessee. If Derrick Henry is not gonna be there you bring up a great point which is if I'm derrick. Henry I WANNA get Lee Bell money. I wouldn't be Todd Gurley of the market. It's it's going to be prepared to pay Tom Brady what he wants. And what he derrick. Henry won't make Tom Brady way better. I think's really interesting point Jack. Conklin is hugely for it to this discussion because again. Brady's forty-three he needs a good office. Life right tannehill covered up some of their deficiencies last year. Tom Brady cat so good. Offense line and Henry back is really important. Another thing you didn't put into this is the division which was extremely unfavorable. What we do. The chargers are the raiders to me. And I don't mean to knock the other teams in that division but this is the division. I'm identifying if I'm in the AFC and that's why this is out of the teams that we feel are the most realistic teams. This is the runaway best fit for Tom. Brady if you tell me that they keep Jack Conklin and maybe move on from Derrick Henry but pay. Brady's amount of money wants this. Is the runaway. Best Realistic Fit for Brady. No I still want Henry. No matter what happens. We'll continue to look at some of these options. Meanwhile Jacksonville Laura. How about this? The future of Nick foles yesterday on. Espn DOT COM. Dan Grazziano and Jeremy Fowler wrote that the Jaguars would like to move forward with Gartner Minhsiu as their starting quarterback next season and ideally raid. Nick full this one caught me extremely by surprise. Josefina thankfully we have here. A what are we hearing about the Jaguars. Here in wanting to treat nick foles. Well Yeah the report is that they want to move on from him. This is a quarterback that is due fifteen point one million in base salary last year only played in four games granted. He didn't win any of them. I just don't think that sample size is large enough to make a decision on a quarterback that just want a super bowl for Philadelphia. And if you're going to go forward with Gartner mentioned you better be darn sure that you're not just getting caught up in which you see on facebook and instagram. And although you know hysteria bar garden issue because that's not going to pay you dividends in the win column if he's not for sure for sure. I think it's fair to listen if I'm the Jaguars. Keep Nick foles. But if they are going to move on from Nick foles the ideal team to call the Jacksonville Jaguars for trade is the Chicago bears. Oh it's a great fit for them systematically but it's also a great fit for a guy who knows. His best role is being that mentor. That backup quarterback that helps a young player plays Guzzi possibly can and then man you gotta go play for two or three games and he plays at starter level. So if I'm the Chicago bears and if there's any truth to this that's my number one call glad you're on the other side of the table. I would keep from in Jacksonville but if I was going to trade there's only one place in America it's The Philadelphia Eagles when they were together with Carson big won the superbowl what is wrong with winning. The sooners all day in a row. We're going to do this the second day in a row. If we go by what we see why would you not want to bring back a character? Productive cornerback along with Carson Wentz and let me list out the reasons why number one you would undermine all the credibility and confidence that Carson wentz built in that organization in Locker Room last year number two you already have a deg on statue up for the guy that overshadows everything number three. How about instead of paying him that money you going wide receiver since you had you playing wide receiver for them last year or go pick defensive back. The worst thing that eagles could do would go. Hey let's go bring back super bowl because because those Philadelphia Eagles fans in session west coast if he's this bravado. This Alpha Dog. He wants to bring in the best backup he can Carson Wentz was hurt in College Carson. Wentz was hurt in the pros. It's reasonable think he's going to get hurt again. And if on the Philippine Eagles and I want to win the Super Bowl started sixteen games. I did spirit her twice. Why not bring back the guy that you know fits really program because you because you undermine everything that he built up. Leicester Carson quarterback when I was around to believe wants good players around the best round bread for breakfast Free Molin they all back the Pistons new be afraid of competition between them this there's no competition between Carson Wentz. Nick foles the last thing that Howie Roseman should do would be bring back. Nick foles because that city still beloved. Nick foles he throws a pick. Carson Wentz. There's a pig you're going to hear booze and play Cart Nick foles and whatnot and all of a sudden you've got an issue. Don't bring issues attention issues. Interlock can I say one thing? Yes Winter Break Banner Susan and the James Winston beat trusted with a big contract with that be a big mistake will answer that next watching. Get up on.

By Wendy's Kevin Durant is sitting out this season as he recovers from the ruptured Achilles suffered in the NBA Finals. Even so his business partner partner. Richard Klein said Durant isn't ruling out representing the United States. The two thousand Twenty Summer Olympics in. Tokyo's definitely a possibility. Climate said he allowed his name to be in the Group of finalists. That there are other benchmarks in front of him. That are more important before he makes those decisions so to that Stephen Ames at best. I'm getting sick and tired of these guys. In this respect. You'd do what you WANNA do. You know why you can do what you WanNa do because you so much money. That's why well who's paying you. Who's cutting those checks? It ain't the Olympics. Usa Basketball. No no no no no I need you WanNa court playing for the people that pay you to guess what all now you come back in the first time folksy you as well Olympic Basketball. How many damn gold medal do y'all WanNa hear that Katy on an NBA court first period know about USA basketball disrespect? Jerry Colangelo no disrespect. I don't want to hear so I turn to. Oh Buddy what what I'm saying. Just because even a Smith start yelling he he's I don't make guess what he's exactly right. He's not he's not. We'RE DOING MARCUS. Cousins get hurt. Where did he get hurt? He got hurt in an NBA game got hurt playing pickup way towards Achilles. Oh Yeah Yeah. Yeah. Why are you know? He was playing against the managers of the team. So let me tell you some basketball guy I. I am less inclined to get hurt when I play with guys who understand how to play at a high level. So what better way to get Kevin durant ready for the NBA season to have them be managed with USA basketball with the best trainers in the game and with the best players in the world. He will be less inclined to get hurt playing against the best that he would against. He's GONNA play regardless he's playing pickup. Now Okay he's GonNa play pick up with the nets trainers and staff. I rather him play with the best players in the world if purchase attempts out. If I'm going to try to block your shot I'm GonNa give you this land can injure yourself Magog. Doesn't know what the hell he's doing. I'm going to try to do everything that is not right because he was. He was yelling like he was speaking the Gospel. Some like everything come out his mouth now. The Gospel Cared Kevin. Durant needs basketball. Like I need food I got ahead. And that's what he is. He is going crazy right now and I love let their man plan Olympics into Steven. Naismith poet like four as with the money side of it. When you're a real hooper. You love the game of basketball. The money don't even matter when you got love for the game of basketball you just WanNa hoop and like you said Jay will he's GonNa hoop regardless you all catch him at a wellness center. You catch them. At a rate lead you'll catch him at the port. Katie is going to play basketball regardless. This is the first time that I agree with rich or anything. You guys I mean. You GotTa think rich and K. D. and all of his guys in his camp. We're GONNA make sure that he has the very best lower the out and you notice you try. You will the only way to get ready to play. Basketball is to play basketball. That's the only way the comb drills the one on one drills is out the window to play basketball under the careful watchful eye of the train medical professionals on the team with which you signed a contract that made a ruling decision to pay you all and I love. Kevin Durant made a ruling decision to pay you all this money. Knowing that there was going to be one season in which you did not play at all. I don't care what anybody says going to. The Olympics is definitively putting yourself in harm's way more so than the other ways that you can be going about this. I'm not suggesting. Should we playing pick up with the managers of anything but there should be very careful process involved here and over the way we should have another conversation. Another day about when the time comes to Stephen as other larger point when the time comes that we stopped sending NBA players to the Olympics. That we have made our point. The point has been made. We needed to make the point. That America is where the best basketball is played. We made that point after we lost in eighty eight and finished with the bronze John. Tom's team all the rest of that. We've made that point. We approved everything there needs to be proved you don't. It'd be sending guys in their thirties to go play in the Olympics during the summer. That's fine for you. But how about for the next kid? Like how about a kid like Imani beats like he's in high school and now he's a sophomore. You don't want him to represent as I say teams. That are twenty thousand. Usa Basketball is working in alignment with the nets on what the training staff to make. Sure that Kevin if he bought away. Nobody said that he's definitely going say. Option is opened. Who GOT IT? Who is coaching the USA team? This you pop pop. Who's assistant coach? K? Right No I don't I don't know that he's involved in that regard listening and let me tell you so. I had a incident when I was in two thousand eight. I got an invite to go trial for the Olympics. I turned it down. Worst mistake of my life my basketball career. You don't never take situations like this for granted in the chance to go play. In the Olympics people die to get this opportunity so you never take for granted and I don't want kids to think that this is not some major because it is when you have a chance to go and represent and play basketball and his highest level and represent for your country. You never take this opportunity for granted. Finally down the only person I could tell Kevin durant not to play his JOE CY. And he's the owner of the nets and that was still potentially be an issue. We will see. Meanwhile we'll have more on that as we go Let's get to football because there's been a lot of speculation this off season about James Winstons future in Tampa yesterday. Peter King wrote that it will likely be that Winston will leave the buccaneers adding that if it happens. He doubts Windsor. We the starting quarterback for a team in twenty twenty. I find that fascinating now. If he is out it's hard to blame Tampa Bay. As over his career Winston has been mattingly inconsistent since two thousand fifteen years. One hundred eleven turnovers. No one else even has ninety however it of course has not all been bad since entering the league. He's in the top ten in passing yards passing touchdowns and yards per attempt. So when you build expression of you know he giveth any taketh away. He most certainly does both of those so wanting to put together a little game. Jamie's versus mentioned another quarterback. And you guys tell me which do you want Jamie's or Mitch trubisky Raw Hannity ipad. You'RE GONNA take if it comes out to this. I'm hiring Dave wants. That are running the ball three downs and I'm going to punt trubisky thirtieth in the NFL. Our Pass I don't think either one of these take it either of them. That's tough I would. I would take trubisky but you would take trubisky James. Next one Jamie's or Jacoby set. Listen Jacoby percent is the easy answer for me. Here Joe Jacobi Percep- before he got hurt with five into at fourteen touchdowns in three picks. This is an easy answer because I know. Jacoby percent values the football in sending player. I've a pretty good idea who James Winston is next Jay or Derek Carr. Yeah this one's top but I'm GONNA go with Derek Carr. Just because he had a decent year last year they really struggled scoring points. But when you look at his. Completion percentage third down. At least it's a semi with Jon. Gruden I don't think it's ideal Derek. Be Over Winston. How James or Teddy Bridgewater? If I had a hundred checks I would put them in. This is Teddy Bridgewater checks for days to Teddy Bridgewater to me. I will pay Teddy Bridgewater double what I'm GonNa Pay Jameis Winston because I know every chance I step on the field with Teddy Bridgewater. He's not going to force my team to lose the game. That's an easy answer for greeting Teddy Bridgewater. I get it so I understand that. I'm taking the unpopular position here. No one james over literally anyone in that little exercise and I understand the biggest criticism I would offer Jameis. Winston is that I still him as a prospect but he's a five year. Nfl veteran. But I still keep thinking if they could just coach a little bit of those turnovers out of him. We always overlooked things he does well. He's the only quarterback threw for five thousand yards last year. I know he's putting them behind and games but he's always bringing them back if they could just raining a little bit of the bad his ceiling his upside. I think is higher than any of the four other quarterbacks might be higher but his his his issues in his the way he hurts his football. You've on the notion that will ever be interesting point. Because sometimes we see quarterbacks developed later in their careers vinny testaverde on his thirteen. We start with rich Gannon so he does have a lethal. But I agree dirk cutters. Good Coach Bruce. Arians get coach but he is young. I just don't think he gets a starting job greeting without some competition. Much the way Ryan how to do it last season interesting. Well the one that he certainly won't do is be the starting quarterback on any team that Tom Brady ones playing for him. We're going back to that as we continue next once upon a time. Tom Brady and Jimmy G. were teammates. Could he actually replace Jimi in San Francisco? Dan's got the pros and cons. Next get up. Espn no one likes to feel stuck especially by your cloud the IBM cloud is the most open secure public cloud for business. It can manage all your apps and data anywhere smart. Loves problems. Ibm Let's put smart to work visit. Ibm Dot com slash flexible. Welcome back get up. Presented by windies. Durant is sitting out this season as he recovers from the ruptured. Achilles suffered in the NBA finals even so his business partner partner. Rich CLIENT SAID. Durant isn't ruling out representing the United States at the two thousand twenty summer Olympics in Tokyo. Tokyo's definitely a possibility. Climate said he allowed his name to be in the Group of finalists. That there are other benchmarks in front of him. That are more important before he makes those decisions so too bad. Stephen Ain't said this I'm getting sick and tired of these guys in this respect you do what you WanNa do. You know why you can do what you WanNa do because you get so much money. That's why well who's paying you. Who's cutting those checks? It ain't the Olympics. Usa Basketball. No no no no no I need you want to court playing the people that pay you to guess what all now you come back in the first time see you as for Olympic basketball. How many damn gold medal do? Y'All me here that Katy on an NBA court first period. Don't know about USA. Basketball disrespect. Jerry Colangelo no disrespect. I don't want to hear so I turned to. Oh Buddy what I'm just saying. Just because even a Smith started yelling like he's I not like guess what he's exactly right not with me why he's always. We're doing marcus. Cousins get hurt. Where did he get hurt? He got hurt in an NBA game playing pickup way towards Achilles. Oh Yeah Yeah. Hawaii's no he was playing against the managers of the team. So let me tell you some basketball guy I. I am less inclined to get hurt when I play guys who understand how to play at a high level. So what better way to get Kevin durant ready for the NBA season to have them be managed with USA basketball with the best trainers in the game and with the best players in the world. He will be less inclined to get hurt playing against the best that he would against. He's GONNA play regardless he's playing pickup. Now Okay he's GonNa play pick up with the nets trainers and staff. I rather him play with the best players in the world. If purchasers attempts out if Hitler I'm not going to try to block your shot. I'm going to say I give you this land can injure yourself if I'm a guy who doesn't know what the hell he's doing. I'm trying to do everything that is not right so you know. He was yelling like he was speaking the Gospel. Some like everything come out his mouth. Not The Gospel cared. Kevin Durant needs basketball. Like I need food I got ahead. And that's what he is. He is going crazy right now and I love it. Let Their Man Plan Olympics into Stephen Smith Poet? Like four as the money side of it. When you're real hooper. You'd love the game of basketball the money don't even matter when you got love for the game of basketball you just WanNa hoop and like you said Jay will he's GonNa hoop regardless you will catch them at a wellness center. You catch him at a rake lead. You catch him at the port. Katie is going to play basketball regardless. This is the first time that I agree with rich or anything. Well you guys I mean you gotTa think that rich and K. D. And all of his guys in his camp we're GonNa make sure that he has the very best lower the out and you notice you go train out. The only way to get ready to play basketball is to do which you're playing basketball. That's the only way the cone drills the one on one drill is out the window to play basketball under the careful watchful eye of the train medical professionals of the team with which you signed a contract that made a ruling decision to pay you and I love Kevin Durant. The made a ruling decision to pay you all of this money knowing that there was going to be one season which you did not play at all. I don't care what anybody says going to. The Olympics is definitively putting yourself in harm's way more so than the other ways that you can be going about this. I'm not suggesting he should be playing. Pick up with the managers of anything but there should be very careful process involved here and oh by the way we should have another conversation. Another day about when the time comes to Stephen as other larger point that when the time comes that we stopped sending NBA players to the Olympics. That took place. We have made our point. The point has been made. We needed to make the point. That America is where the best basketball is played. We made that point after we lost an eighty eight and finished with the bronze John Thompson. Team all the rest of that. We've made that point. We approved everything there needs to be proved you don't. It'd be sending guys in their thirties to go play in the Olympics during the summer. That's fine for you. But how about for the next kid? Like how about okay. Like Mani beats like he's in high school and now he's a sophomore. You don't want him to representative me say teams. That are twenty so like that. Usa Basketball is working in alignment with the nets on what the training staff to make. Sure that Kevin if he bought away. Nobody said that he's definitely going say. Option is opened. Who GOT IT? Who is coaching the USA team issues? Pop Pop. Who's assistant coach? K? Right No. I don't know that he's involved in that regard but listen. Let me tell you so. I had a incident when I was in two thousand eight. I got an invite to go trial for the Olympics. I turned it down. Worst mistake of my life my basketball career. You don't never take situations like this for granted. In the chance to go playing Olympics people died. Get this opportunity so you never take for granted. And I don't want kids to they did. This is not some major because it is when you have a chance to go and represent and play basketball and his highest level and represent for your country. You never take this opportunity for granted. Finally way down the only person I could tell Kevin durant not to play his JOE CY. And he's the nets and that was still potentially be an issue. We will see. Meanwhile we'll have more on that as we go. Let's get to football though because there's been a lot of speculation this off season about James Winstons future in Tampa yesterday. Peter King wrote that it will likely be that Winston will leave. The buccaneers adding that if it happens doubts. Windsor. We the starting quarterback for a team in two thousand twenty. I find that fascinating now. If he is out it's hard to blame. Tampa Bay over his career. Winston has been mattingly inconsistent since two thousand fifteen years. One hundred eleven turnovers. No one else even as ninety however it of course not all been bad since entering the league. He's in the top ten in passing yards passing touchdowns and yards per attempt. So when you the old expression of you know he give tickets away. He most certainly does both of those so wanted to put together a little game. Jamie's versus mentioned another quarterback. And you guys tell me which I d you on Jamie's or Mitch Trubisky Hannity ipad. You're taking go ahead if it comes out to this. I'm hiring Dave wants. That are running the ball and then I'm going to punt trubisky thirtieth in the NFL at average per pass. I don't think he went with either one of these guys. Take it either of them. That's tough I would. I would take trubisky but you would take trubisky James. Next one Jamie's or jacoby percent. Listen Jacoby percent is the easy answer for me. Here Joe Jacobi Percep- before he got hurt with five into at fourteen touchdowns and three picks. This is an easy answer because I know. Jacoby percent values the football in sending player. I have a pretty good idea. Who James Winston is next Jay or Derek Carr? Yeah this one's top but I'm GONNA go with Derek Carr. Just because he had a decent year last year they really struggled scoring points. But when you look at the completion percentage third down at least it's a semi with Jon. Gruden I don't think it's ideal but Derek Carr to be over Winston have james or Teddy Bridgewater. If I had a hundred checks I would put them in. This is Teddy Bridgewater checks for days to Teddy Bridgewater to me. I will pay Teddy Bridgewater double what I'm GonNa Pay Jameis Winston because I know every chance I step on the field with Teddy Bridgewater. He's not going to force my team to lose the game. That's an easy answer for me. Greeting Teddy Bridgewater. I get it so I understand that. I'm taking the unpopular position here. No one took Jamie's over literally anyone in that little exercise and I understand the biggest criticism I would offer Jameis. Winston is that I still view him as a prospect but he's a five year. Nfl veteran. But I still keep thinking if they could just coach a little bit of those turnovers out of him. We always overlooked at things does well. He's the only quarterback threw for five thousand yards last year. I know he's putting behind and games but he's always bringing them back if they could just rain in a little bit of the bad his ceiling his upside. I think is higher than any of the four other quarterbacks might be higher but his his his issues in his his the way he hurts his football. You've got enough on the notion that that will be interesting point. Because sometimes we see quarterbacks developed later in their careers vinny testaverde on his thirteen. We saw with rich Gannon so he does have elite talent. But I agree dirk cutters. Good Coach Bruce. Arians get coach but he is young. I just don't think he gets a starting job greeting without some competition. Much the way Ryan how to do it last season interesting. Well the one that you certainly won't do is be the starting quarterback on any team that Tom Brady winds up playing for him. We're going back to that as we continue next once upon a time. Tom Brady and Jimmy G. were teammates. Could he actually replace Jimi in San Francisco? Dan's got the pros and cons. Next get up. Espn welcome back to get out presented. By Wendy's. We continue to speculate about Tom. Brady's future here on get up. Dan's been giving us his pros and cons for a number of teams who may be interested in Brady and Dan. Let's go to the forty niners this particularly interesting because of course they have. Brady's former backup Jimmy Garoppolo. Who's now they're started? This team went to the Super Bowl with Garoppolo. Didn't win it pros and cons of Radi go into the forty niners well. How realistic it is. I don't know but listen. Everyone's GonNa go. Tom Brady doesn't fit the forty niners because he doesn't fit the scheme. You're incorrect cal. Shanahan has had a top five offense with three different quarterbacks. Three different styles of quarterbacks. Rg Three Matt Ryan Jimmy Garoppolo. So Fantastic. Play caller and play designer. Which is Tom Tom? Juice to that with Josh McCain is number two the closest thing that we've seen to rob Gronkowski George Kato his ability to dominate all different kinds of pass routes man coverage zone covered vertical ball short ball screen game crossing game. I mean kid who is a physical player that Tom Brady will have a great understanding of how to throw the football too because he is so representative of the way that Rob Gronkowski played and they would use him very similar to way that Tom is used to as well and then listen. This is a outstanding defense that really like as a defense as a quarterback and say hey score twenty points. We'll do the rest and this would be one of the best defences that Tom Brady has ever played as an agent. Quarterback is a guy that wants to finish his career not having to carry a football team. You don't have to go out there and think man. I gotta go score thirty to thirty five points to go. Good football teams. This defense is so dominant. They will get the ball back to Tom. Brady bunch so the fact that you don't have that pressure of quarterback there's so many pros to the San Francisco Forty niners all right now to the cons. I got there is. There is no downside for Tom. Brady for Tom Brady. There's nothing as a downside to go to the San Francisco Forty niners. They got players. They HAVE SCHEME. They have an offensive line. They have a run game dominant defense. Okay Mr T. pointed this out earlier Tom Brady. And Jimmy. Garoppolo have the same agent in Ye. I mean that's why I don't see this happy because I've been in this situation right now. You're a great situation with a good quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and if in a year you bring in Tom Brady. Tom Brady retires. Then you have nobody. We had that at the jets where we had so I would tell you. That's why I think is very unrealistic and go. But here's the thing a year from now you're holding the trophy. Do you regret it absolutely. Not right there's no guarantees that you'll be holding the trophy F. You don't have the trophy. And you don't have either two quarterbacks. Now you're starting all you're really sorry from scratch either. This is a lot of fun. Doing the pros and cons place to being Brady doesn't know Dan you're not in the mix. Let's get to baseball. They'll Yankees spent big in free agency this off season they signed Garrett Cole to a nine year three hundred twenty four million dollar contract largest for pitcher in baseball history unfortunately a recent. Yonki tradition has also continued the injury but Luis Severino season. Angering Tom Season ending. Tommy John Surgery. James Paxson commits the first two months of the season after having back surgery. And it's not just the pitchers who are her Giancarlo. Stanton is a strained calf but could sideline him for opening day while Aaron judge is undergoing an MRI on his shoulder. So they're banged up. Despite all of that the folks in the desert still set the over under for the winds by the Bronx bombers at one hundred and a half that is the most by any American league team and all of the dodgers in Major League Baseball. And so. Let's talk about that as we bring in. Aaron Boone the manager of the Yankees Buni. It's really terrific to see you here and I just put together sort of what you were looking at a very high expectations and you have a lot of injuries. Where does that leave the manager with high expectations? Nothing ever changes for us. I feel like we're a team capable of handling any adversity thrown our way. We've been dealt our share here early on obviously Sevi- going down and knowing we're GONNA lose him for the season You know Kinda hurting for him and what that means for him but we also feel like we're very equipped to handle it and move on and still go out and do our thing and As far as some of the other guys you mentioned I still believe they're going to be on the shorter sides of things I just just spoke with Aaron judge before I walked out here. He's doing so much better. We feel like he's in a pretty good spot here. Moving forward Giancarlo. You know. It's unfortunate with the cap strange at calf strain. But you know at the end of things it's it's it's a great one calf strain so we're GONNA make sure that's completely healed but we also don't necessarily think that's a long term situation and we do feel like James Paxton is is moving according to plan and You know probably scheduled to start throwing here in the next week or so so We we do feel good about the prognosis of a lot of our guys. All right so all of those are good. And then you have to take great comfort in the fact that you can hand the baseball now two Garrett Cole on opening day and see what he can do a lot of people believe he is the best pitcher in baseball. What are your expectations for him? That he'll continue to go out and be the best or certainly one of the best pitchers in the game. You know we obviously made a huge commitment to Garrett based on him being one of the Great Aces in our sport in the prime of his career. But we also made that commitment. Because we feel like we're getting a special person and and a guy that's going to impact our our room our clubhouse That has all the intangible things that you want in a player that are hopefully going to lend itself to him having longevity to him positively affect in our culture to him hopefully having a positive influence on the rest of our staff and he's been everything as advertised here in the early days of camping in in just a and he's throwing the ball incredibly well and then a final thought. I know that you have answered questions about this. Before for those in our audience who've not yet heard from you what sorts of conversations after your team was one of those loss to the Astros in the postseason and all the controversy that has surrounded that during this spring training. What conversations have you and your players had about that. Yeah I mean we've had a lot of them You know some from real raw one on one conversations when thanks first came out two guys you know getting on the record for the first time when they were asked it I also think it's been important for us as a team to you know once we've commented on at once guys have gotten things off their chests whatever they've need to say about it. It's time to move on because we have too much at stake moving forward. Our guys understand that it's a hungry group and you know our expectations are to go out and win a championship. Boone's Chrissy you good luck again. We'll see on. Espn today and is the season gets underway. Thanks very much for doing this. I appreciate it. Take Care. All right today. We have Grapefruit League Baseball. I mentioned the Red Sox Yankees from Tampa one o'clock eastern on ESPN and you can see it on the ESPN APP. But it's another of the all access games so some of the players managers and executives or miked up the in game interviews and features with other insider content throughout the game. It was great fun to watch yesterday. Ensure it will be again today one eastern on. Espn coming up next. Should Dak Prescott sign a short term deal with the cowboys Max? Kellerman weighs in on that and more right after this also I have to go to the gym and untangle my headphones while warming up on the treadmill and now finally untangle them four miles later which point I- motorcycles everything exciting and when Geico makes it easy to switch and save on motorcycle insurance. It's even more exciting. I put my headphones and I realize that silence geico motorcycle. Fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more.
