"Wait, are you a Hall of Fame elect or are you a Hall of Famer? How does that work? Since it's not a official yet. That's true. I think I'm merely an elected Hall of Famer as of right now. It's not official till this summer. Do you have a jacket? Just like a winter jacket. The gold. They fitted this for the gold jacket this weekend and then we actually get the gold jacket at the gold jacket dinner, which is like the Friday before the Hall of Fame game this summer. Where are you right now? I am in Wisconsin at my farm. And I didn't know it was going to be video, but at the last minute I had to put a real fire on in the back because I heard you have a real fake fire. Yes, I do. And your studio. Can you have a real fake fire? That's what you have. No, it's real fake fire. I think I just have a fake fire. No, it's very fake. Yours is real. Mine's real real. Okay, tell the story about how you found out and how your wife kept it is surprised that you got into the whole affair. Yeah, it makes me a little nervous how good my wife was at keeping a surprise for me. Because I was sure that the announcement, whether you made it or not, was going to come close to the Super Bowl because they weren't going to tell us weeks in advance because of course, in today's social media world, you'd think it would leak, but sure enough, two weeks before NFL honors, there's a knock at my door, but we're all hanging out in the kitchen and it's right after school, and so I hear a knock and I think that it's maybe just the neighbor kids coming over to play with my kids, which happens all the time. And so my kids, they bust around the corner, they go to the front door, thinking that their friends are going to be there. And they see Walter Jones in a big gold jacket taking up both door frames. And I'm still sitting in the kitchen with my wife, and I hear the kids running back from the front door into the kitchen. Dad, there's a guy with a coat at the door, and then all of a sudden my son, he's like jumping four feet in the air like a Mexican jumping bean. He goes, dad, we made it. We made it. Because I was just so caught off guard in that moment. I was not expecting any announcement for at least another week. And so it took me a second, but then once I realized what happened, it was so awesome that, first of all, my idol, Walter Jones, the guy emulated my own game after was the guy that was at the door doing the knock. But for him to basically deliver the news to my son and then to be my son, be the one that delivers to me allows us to all share in that memory in that moment. And I think that just made it a special as it possibly could have been. Okay, are you leaving out a slight detail of what you were wearing? Or not wearing? Yeah, there were some details before the knock happened because my wife told me we were going to go out to dinner with the neighbors. A Friday night makes sense. And so I was just in my underwear, just around the house. But she knew at 4 o'clock the knock was going to happen. And so she's like, why don't you go upstairs and get ready? I'm like, well, we don't have to leave for dinner for like 30 minutes. It takes a man like 5 seconds to get ready. I can wait until another 20 or 30 minutes. She's like, just go upstairs and put your pants on. I'm like, jeez, lady. Back off. So I'm like, all right, fine, but you know, like any good husband, I figured I should probably go listen. So I went upstairs and I did put pants on at least for the official knock at the door. Okay, why are you in your underwear? All day. I mean, that's what you do when you're retired from the NFL, right? Why would you put clothes out if you don't have to? I like that she's trying to get you to put your pants on because she knows they're going to be a knock at the door and you're going to be there in your underwear where Walter Jones is there to tell you you're going into Hall of Fame. Yeah, that would have been very embarrassing for me. I had anybody seen me in my underwear. That's awesome. Well, congratulations. Thank you. All right, a couple of things here. The condition of the field in the Super Bowl. Would you rather have grass or turf if you're playing? So I've always been a grass guy. Two reasons one, it's easier on your body, but also as an offensive lineman, we're the biggest slowest guys in the field. They always say we're the last bus stop on the roster. If you can't make it as alignment, your next step is going to coaching. There's no place to go to if you get slower or less athletic after being on the offensive line. And so when you plan a little bit of a slick field, it usually favors the guys that are a little bit less athletic, not as quick because it kind of neutralizes some of that quickness in some of that speed. So personally, I like grass. I think it's better for the players and it's better for us slow guys. But certainly those receivers, those guys that rely on quick cuts that rely on trying to create power like your pass rushers. Those guys hate it sometimes because they can't get to some of the technique that usually makes them the great players that they are with their quickness and their power. How important was that Kansas City offensive line? They were awesome. I mean, I kind of had a feeling that things were going to come down to line play, but I thought it was going to favor the eagles, right? I thought everybody looked at the chiefs and said, you know, there are lines pretty good, but this eagles defensive line is so good top to bottom. And especially looking at Andrew Wiley at right tackle. That was a really a big mismatch going into this game with Hassan Reddick. But you got to give him a ton of credit because he played a fantastic game, one of his best games, especially after not playing all that well in the Super Bowl a couple years ago. Yeah, it's embarrassing to have a field like that that did affect some plays and it certainly affected. It felt like the eagles more than the Kansas City Chiefs. How does that happen? How did we get to the Super Bowl and we play on a field where there's question marks about it? Yeah, it's so crazy. I'm not exactly sure. I think maybe it has to do probably some nerd out there would tell you that because they grow the grass outside in a different environment and then when you bring it inside, it changes like the humidity level and it makes a little bit of a dew line on top of the grass and that's probably why it makes it a little bit slick, but I totally made that up. I have no idea. But you're a farmer. So it sounds like you know. Do you have a working form? I do, yeah, we're actually starting to sell some beef to local restaurants. We call it 6 springs, Hall of Fame beef, because it's better than prime. So you can't just get this anywhere, Dan. You can only get the finest establishments known to man. I'll send some to you. It's not Pro Bowl beef. It's Hall of Fame. Not merely Pro Bowl beef. This is Hall of Fame. This is one step above Pro Bowl. If anybody can get Pro Bowl beef. We're talking to Joe Thomas, the newly elected Hall of Famer, Hall of Fame elect, I guess, until you have the official ceremony there. I was wondering about this. First battle Hall of Famer. Would you be in favor of a different jacket color, any kind of designation that says you're a first team or first ballot Hall of Famer? I'm

"Oh man, well let's go to the quarterback who just kind of shredded this line's defense last week. That would be, of course, Gino Smith. Now he goes down to New Orleans. I think this saints defense is really, really, really good. I love the test to present for Gino Smith, but I also love two rookie tackles who have performed quite well. I don't want to overstate it. This isn't Walter Jones and Walter Jones is handsome or brother at left tackle and right tackle. But Charles cross and Abe Lucas have both played admirably well early in the season. And this is a front four that we just saw in London game last week. I mean, they essentially took over the game against the Vikings. Yeah, I think they're going to consistently have to. There is no other option for them at this point. They're not interesting or good enough, offensively except for that. Did you see that jumbo package the saints ran against the Vikings last week? Yeah. Pretty cool, right? More of that only do that. Yeah, that's what I was going to say. It's like my take from a couple of weeks ago from college football 97 for Sega genesis, right? You only play in goal I defense. And you only play in like, what would you call that? What would you call that personnel grouping? Yeah, I mean, look, jumbo's good. You just call it like a jumbo plus, that's not very original. But yeah, it's like all 11 men are now jumbo. Yeah. But it doesn't also fit into like, even if it was the personnel grouping lexicon, right? Because if you call it 11 personnel, right, it's running backs and wide receivers. So would it just be like, is it like ten personnel, I guess? Is it fall under the ten personnel umbrella? That's one running back. And zero. No wide receivers? Yeah. Right? I guess. But you gotta come up with something cool. This is you're always your point, right? Where it's like air raid can make a very boring offense sound really cool. And you know, I don't know. You make it something like the bear defense is already taken, right? Fair front. Something hammer, something, it's not a jackhammer. It's not that violent. It's just a, it's like a bulldozer. It's like the bulldozer defense. Yeah, yeah. The bulldozer, the bulldozer offense, the steamroller, steamroller is good. Yeah, that works. I'm trying to think of all the things that wile E coyote gets run over with. One of those things. Yeah. So there you go.

"Enshrined in the Hall of Fame very few people have been able to play at that level and be able to do that. So it's always great to see guys that you know personally be able to experience that. I love it. Did you have to, I know it was an interior. He was a defensive tackle, but Bryant young. Also, Richard Seymour, like a three four defensive end, you have to go against those two played against both of them a lot, Brian, young, you gotta remember when you were a rookie, what used to be like this, when you were a rookie, whatever position you played on the offensive line, they were going to put their best defensive player on you. That's just what it was. And so Brian young lined up on me quite a bit. I had to play against him a lot. My rookie year and then subsequent years after that, you know, in the year when he was come back player of the year, 99, like all of those, I played against him a bunch and Richard Seymour as well. Yeah. How would you describe both of those guys on the field? Hall of Fame worthy? Yeah. Tremendous abilities. In a Brown was just so savvy, so smart. He could just tell from alignment. It was just the little things as a young player. You don't realize yet. And they exploit. And I tell you what, my rookie year was a gauntlet. I mean, my first game was just Kevin green. He's in the Hall of Fame. Yeah. Right? You know what I mean? Charles Haley. Is it who's who? Of Michael Strahan, like all of these guys, I had to see for a 65 plays a game. My rookie year. Yeah. Which is what led me to. Having a 13 year career. Like being able to handle something like that at 21, 22 years old. That bodes well for setting a foundation for a long career in the NFL. At any position. By the way, how would you, and I'm just curious, how would you describe as an offensive tackle, the difference between going up against a Hall of Famer? And even a really good player or an average a below average. Just to put in that into words, how would you describe it? Oh, it's night and day. I would say it like this. I'm trying to put it in terms where people can actually, 'cause I can use another football term or another sports term, but people won't be able to realize that because very few people have gotten to be at this level. So I'll say it like this. It's the same. Okay, if you bought a car, all right? And you bought a Nissan ultimate, which is a great car. It's gonna last a long time. I mean, it's good. But then, you upgraded that to a Mercedes Benz. S 600. The great car, they both cars. They both will get you there. But one's just better. It is. One's just better. It's faster, it's more comfortable. The system, it sounds better. It feels better. And I equate that. Now, all players in the NFL are good. There aren't any bad players in the NFL. Right? Guys may not play a lot. Guys maybe second, there are no bad players. Professional sports, that's not a place to hide bad players. In any league, basketball, baseball, there are no bad players playing professional sports. I can promise you that. Now, the talent level changes depending on the player. I was a good player. I wasn't a great player. I wasn't a Hall of Fame player, but I was a good player. I go out there, I give you everything I had. And then you have someone like Jonathan I did. Yeah. Who we played the same position when I played my best football, I was 6 8, 290 pounds. Jonathan Ogden, when he played his best football, he was 6 9 three 50. You're not serious. No matter, no matter what I wanted to do, I couldn't do that. You know what I'm saying? He was a man, a wall. I watched defensive. So what happens is when you're in when you're preparing for a team, you watch their previous three games. And whenever Baltimore was one of the teams that whoever the team we're facing will play out. Because now I'll have to watch Jonathan Ogden play against the defensive end that I'm. But what are the rules of trick you? It'll be like, man, look at you, oh, I could do that. No, I can not. Like, he's grabbing guys with one arm and just holding them in the air with one arm. I can not do that. I've never been able to do that. It's like a pro wrestling choke movie. He's going big show on. He was so smooth and so, you know, Orlando pace was like that. Walter Jones, I played in the eras of these guys. And Eric Williams, I'm like, I can't do any of that. I'm out there. I got everything I got. I got a pretty good to each play. And these guys were just massive athletic dynamic men. And the thing that helped me and my career was my mental approach to the game. Being able to make the game easier and slow it down from my mental preparation. It seemed like those guys, not to take away from there, but it seemed like they could just roll out of the bed and just be like, hey, I'm not gonna let you get by today. Yeah. I think he was a little bit later past the generation you're talking about, but Joe Thomas comes to me. The same thing with the browns. Unbelievable. Yeah. Unbelievable from day one, you know, he has it. What did you think about Tony bissell? You know what? I think about that a lot. My thing with Tony is Tony is that he was one of the best to ever do it. Watching him play against Bruce Smith and all those guys and

I mean, it led up to put an end to their Super Bowl winning, but I don't know. I think seahawk fans will be like, you have to include somebody from the year in which they want a Super Bowl, right? But would you put Russ on that list? Obviously, like the short list. He's on there.

What's the top four rated on pro football reference? What is there? They do is something called AV. So then what do they have for the rams? Okay, you looked that up. By the way, rams is Merlin Olsen. Jack youngblood. Aaron Donald and Jackie slater. I forgot Jackie slipped. I named the other guys. Respected Jackie slater, completely forgotten. I don't think you can go wrong naming deacon Jones on that list though. I don't think you can go wrong. I don't think so. He's 8th on that list behind our window pace, Tom Mack, and Isaac Bruce. Merlin Olsen, I'll tell this story again if I already have it. I think I have. You guys have probably heard it, right? My Merlin Olsen story. So yeah, when we first started NFL network, the first thing we did was go to the pro football Hall of Fame. Before we launched and I recorded a bunch of round table interviews, though there was no table and there's nothing round of just me sitting on a director's chair and then other director shares next to me inside the bus room. And we didn't air those interviews till the next year, which we needed to run instead of NFL total access because everybody did to NFL total access, boarded a flight to go to canton. So we needed the content to fill the whole of what normally would have been NFL total access that night. And so the interview I had was it was with me. It was supposed to be the hardest hitters in the history of the game. Me, Ronnie lott, and Lawrence Taylor. And Lawrence Taylor didn't show. And it was Ronnie lott and it was Merlin Olsen. And I asked those guys the hardest hit they ever delivered to anyone on the Phil Merlin Olson said, Jim Brown, I hit him so hard one time. He goes, he came to the coliseum and that's all we talked about all week is we are not going to let him beat us. We're going to put on the ground father Murphy did not say ass. And so Merlin Olsen said that he had a clear shot of Jim Brown, which is so rare. Jim Brown coming around the end, a clear shot at him, and he just walloped him. He hit him so hard that he said that he had visions of seeing Jim's eyes rolling in the back of his head when he got up. He got up and he saw Jim Brown run 70 more yards for the touchdown.

"Of course, of course, but I mean, it's too soon. Too soon. But of course, I'm not saying he's not in the running. And as the opportunity to be in opportunity to be hands down the greatest ram of all time, the goat is the goat for the reason. He's Jerry Rice. I mean, obviously you're going to get a lot of people saying Joe Montana, dude. Obviously, clearly. We can just stop it. Honestly, we have to stop that conversation. I mean, there's a conversation of the greatest player of all time in the history of the NFL and it comes down to Jerry Rice. Jerry Rice and Jim Brown that Brady finally crashed that party. Just a couple of years ago, but when I first started NFL network, damn near 20 years ago, it was Jerry Rice or Jim Brown. That was the conversation and that was always going to be the conversation until Brady crashed that party. Seattle, Steve largent is an outstanding choice. I love that choice. Well, he's a Hall of Famer. And can you, I mean, Russ only won one, Bobby Wagner? Can you put him in that mix too? I mean, you want to get, like I said, showing love to the O line, you have Steve Hutchinson and Walter Jones. That's correct. Marshawn, I think he might be the most popular martial law of all time. Jim zorn. Jim zorn used to run Jim zorn used to he and Dave Craig, I think, are the all time leaders in scramble. The yards behind the line of scrimmage. So he used to run for his life Jim's order. Mister another favorite of mine was Cortez Kennedy back in who else did you throw out there for the Cardinals? The Cardinals, I mean, let's see, I had Larry, I had Kurt Warner in there, but a very small sample size for Larry Fitzgerald along with Brady and I think at the time Vinatieri trying to thank there were only a small handful of active players on the NFL 100 all time team list. And he was one of Gronk was another one. He was and he made that list and I know there were some eyebrows raised because if you're.

"There was also Jamal Lewis and fairness was taking 5th and okamoto. I didn't see that yesterday. Fair enough. Yeah, so that worked out well. But yeah, so no, that actually ends up being a great, although I will say that in like Alexander was very good, but also like that that's also a part Walter Jones. Are you saying having Walter Jones and Steve hutchison on the offensive line? And I know we're gonna put you realize that have the Seahawks not for whatever reason traded Kevin mollee to the jets that they would have three Hall of Famers on that line. Yeah. And it's also just amazing to think of the Seattle. The first Seattle Seahawks Super Bowl team was built on having a great offensive line. It was just the weirdest thing. I don't know what that would be like. I'm very confused right now. Hard to reconstruct that now. But anyway, it's also fuck Ben Roethlisberger. Hey, we continue here. Yes, yes, well yeah. So but in any case, we probably should get to the get a little bit get to the point here, Brady's retired. I don't even know what there is to say. He's the greatest of all time. In some ways I'm actually kind of surprised he retired. I always thought it was a guy who was going to go into there was nothing left of the tank, but the comparison of what Brady did this year compared to what Peyton Manning did in his final year where he actually did win the Super Bowl ride. Brady was what? I mean, and I don't have the numbers in front of me, but he's not worse than the third best quarterback in the NFL this year, right? Is that Greg Scott? And let me see what he I don't like to let me see where he ended up on the and he did it with at some point with really good tools, but the bucks had lots of injuries this year. And yeah, I mean, I was also pretty surprised. I mean, he may have just sort of looked forward and said, you know, next year's box team is not going to be a Super Bowl contender. They have some pretty serious salary cap issues ahead of them. And that may have just been like, I would love to go out as a winner, but I want to have a reasonable chance. And so I don't want to go out for a team that is not a Super Bowl contender. May have been his logic. But yeah. So I know in comments we've had some people who are really standing for Aaron Rodgers on this little goat thing. And you know, there is sort of a sabermetric case for that in certain ways..
Dual Threat with Ryen Russillo
"walter jones" Discussed on Dual Threat with Ryen Russillo
"Had other calls right. They didn't just go into the game with one. Play call for those situations the pride six stump mitchell as the run game coordinator in those situations he was automatic but at the end of the day by. He's the one call gay and he was like i'm going to give them over. Shaw exander over. Steve hudson robbie toe back and walter jones. Two of them were going to be in the hall of fame and they might know. It's coming of my gut tells me were be able to get a yard and a half and i think it's a couple boring story but my point being there's also that gut feel like hey this play. They can't stop or this situation can stop this guy or i'm going to play because it's always seems to work like every time i call spot fought works. Keep calling spot So i think that fits into the script conversation twos. You can't get so in the preparation that you got to get the next play before you've worn out a play the keeps work. This is a bigger question about the under guys had happens. It's classic It's kinda my jackson dart. So i washed jackson in that first game against washington state were. Sc came back. Unfortunately jackson got hurt but he got hurt because he didn't give a shit in the best possible way like he was like i'm out here. I'm ready to ball. Like i didn't restrictions. There's you walk. Yeah like what are you talking about. And then he was. He was basically on one leg by the end of the game. And that's my college example of it. Because i loved watching him that entire game even though unlike this poor kid is getting. This ship kicked out of them. That's what we saw this past weekend with the young guys. Now daniel jones been a league long enough but he looked like tommy hearns. At one point which was scary the trae lance keeper to the pylon. I can't believe he survived that one and then he had another plate where he came back inside and try to get a couple of yards and even the announcer was like you. Don't do that this league you don't come back into the traffic Who else who else there was one. Other one there to borough got killed trying to convert a third twelve on the ground How many times do you have to get your ass hannity before you realize. Even though guys are quicker you know in kotler kind of changes. Almost anything because kyle is like in. But even he got you know popped last year. Rg threes a great example Even though he always tried to blame the offense it was his inability to protect himself that prematurely ended his career. So some guys don't actually figure it out and after this past weekend that scared me. A little bit of a contrarian here on this answer In context all say it. My answer all is under the umbrella of knowing the situation down fourteen with two minutes to go protect yourself. I being heraldic and trying to get an extra yard and a half going forward and try to run over safety's kind of stupid right. I appreciate that some of these guys are bringing back in the old school competitive mentality. And i'll use john always example John slide right. He played.

No anything and i was just appeal to people out there. If there's someone else that has an idea about what we can do because obviously we cannot get through to to youtube. We can't get any help. We can't get any response and we'll just gone. You know this could be settled in a free market and it would be through contracts. What do they agree to what they sign up to. Then there's also the principle the implied contract. You know that when when you do it When you join an organization something. The implication is is that they're not gonna give it to your enemies or your competitors and pass around. It is just so bad but they They're they're ruthless with this and Unfortunately is it has to be dealt with because there's legislation that's being proposed and sometimes i read it and you know i i i i see some. That's too broad for me. They just say thou shalt not ever say anything and it can't be that way they have to have have some rules about it but the rules now are designed by social media Which is a partner of the government and They share this information. So that's that's where i have a problem I just want to mention a couple little things here as close One one thing is United states You know is there still working hard on the Vaccine passport i. They still strongly believe in this and So but there's different countries have different passports. Passport is a passport isn't it..

"You can't even make a judgment on scheme because you said they didn't even run the ball. That didn't even play with any temple. They didn't make any of that stuff. It was as basic vanilla as it gets. It was an opportunity more than anything to see. Okay stone forsythe. who's really your fourth. String tackle dwayne brown. It's marco jones it's even surgical boy he stone is your fourth string left tackle in played like it looked like it looked like a six rounder. That was thrown into the mix allowed stadium for the first time in years the to play a whole new system with its head swimming and everything else and so i make no judgment whatsoever on the offensive line. Play of what's going to be playing in indianapolis in three weeks absolutely zero none zilch. After those forty nine snaps i watched with genome magoo and shaman. But what about a left tackle. I left tackle. You need dwayne. Brown and dwayne brown knows that they need dwayne brown and dwayne brown is flexing his leverage. And i i'll tell you. I'm not necessarily the more i thought about it. John schneider said and pre-game steve rebel that. Hey we got twenty it was. It was definitely not a shot. But it was john being john earn an honest and transparent saying we get twenty one guys. Steve who's contracts are up at the end of the year right and you said president and you do someone's deal with one year left now. How many other guys are the time. Don't they not necessarily the dude in-season k. j. ryan in particular. They'd like to get guys done that they want to get done. they've shown a propensity to that have done it before they got marshawn done. They have and i would. Also the more i thought about that. Who else has leverage to flex of twenty one guys. That is absolutely the point. I is it is. It will d'isly in everett. We'll use another alex. Collins and rashad penny is at brandon shell honest. I've thought about the twenty-one guys the only other one that could maybe flex some of that leverage is quandary. Dick's that's it. So i'm not worried about all of these other guys on the final year there do they all get to play with a spoon and d'isly all got to play and show that they can be productive difference making nfl players. Which is what digs and dwayne brown. If shown so yeah. I get it. You have twenty one other guys. None of them are going to flex none. We're to hold out. None of them are or their agents. Do it's gonna be a very quick. Yeah we'll talk to you in december january hopeful-. Hopefully your client stays healthy and well and is a difference maker for us. Because that's what quandary and that is what dwayne been. But you've you know you've got to get dwayne done. He's got to be agree with. Al annapolis i think very similarly i. I think that the seahawks don't have a lot of leverage in either of these two contract fights that they found themselves in and they're going to need to find. I also think both will get done. I don't dwayne brown needs to be a practice. I don't think he needs to play one. Preseason game. I don't think he needs to attend much practice until the last week or so. I don't think that's a major concern and maybe brought. That's just my you know listening to you. Talk about walter. Jones didn't need it and my assumption that if you can play that position you can play that position. That's not to say doesn't need to work himself in shape and all of those things and i think that's valuable. I don't know that i've ever seen anybody who looks like he's in better shape. Blue left tackle than dwayne brown. And as you're watching andrew whitworth dominate and be one of the best tackles in the game over mean like i just don't have i would tend to agree. That fights every fiber of my coaches son being because i do think reps are important and especially in a new system and of course. You wouldn't have them. That's right but he is a pretty unique talent and has shown that over a decade in this league last year in particular played is one of the top three tackles in the game. So if you were to say to me if is a guy on this roster that could maybe live without some of the pounding a preseason. Who would i be. Dwayne brown wimpy way up on that well. Hopefully that gets done. I continue to believe that it will because the seahawks need him and he wants to play ball reasonable. he is. he'll be right there on the mega-deals yeah not not a ten million. But mega mega deals this off season at his position arguing played better that he understands the age and the value. I i would think certainly is agent. Does now they're going to want money. And they're gonna be able to point to the fact that that that position can play later into their career and pointed andrew whitworth and they'll be right. The seahawks are going to have to pay some money for dwayne brown but they have the money to spend they have room they have enough so they and they're going to have to because they just don't have another option unless they're looking to make a deal for that position and i think that would be a huge problem for them at this point jamal. They got more leverage. You and i disagree on this. I think they got more leverage..

Of course the hall of fame game tonight in canton ohio A lotta guys won't be there. You heard christine. Say that there are like sixteen guys from the cowboys will not be there including dak prescott. We've talked about how many reps big ben is gonna take the answer you think is zero. Of course they're gonna get a chance to look at some of those other guys We are joined now on the goodyear hotline by chris. Canty chris canty of course former giants defensive end super bowl champion. He's got his own show. Don't say that he's champion. Rub initiations that. He's a super bowl. Champion superbowl champion. You're welcome co-host of gpa. Candy rothenberg eight five two eight. Am on espn ninety. Eight point seven chris. Thanks for joining us. We asked bart earlier about his preseason memories. He had a sack in his very first game. It was almost twenty years ago at this point. Lions versus ravens. What do you remember from your first. Preseason game jen the thing that i remember my purse. Preseason game was that i was proud. I didn't get beat to sleep by all pro left tackle and now hall of famer walter jones all because we were planning seahawks and i had no idea what i was in for but i feel like you know not going out there and getting embarrassed is a good start to my pro career. And that's what happened so that that's the lasting memory that i have at again. According to our stats and research. Your first career. Preseason game was august thirteenth. Two thousand five. So just a few years after bart made his debut in the preseason cowboys at cardinals and you had one tackle in that game. I don't even remember that. not eventful. don't even remember it full memory but you had a long successful career after that we were talking about the emotions that a lot of these guys are going through fans or super excited. That football is finally here and it's going to run all the way through february at this point. What you remember from the emotions was at nerves. Anxiousness where you confident. Were you concerned about your spot. How did it go for you for me. It was just about making sure that. I didn't let my teammates down. Like i wanted to go out there and execute my assignments. And i just felt like if i did that. Then that would be something that ultimately led to me having a career that i wanted but yeah i mean it's moving so fast when you're a young player like you just wanna go out there and try not to to mess up and make any mistakes. That could cost your team and opportunity to win a game. Because i mean coaches a grading. You've just based on your competitiveness and whether or not they think you can help the team wants to get to the regular season so that's ultimately what the preseason is about trying to figure out who are gonna be the guys that you can rely on wants to games matter for real day. Whoa criolla. I mean we had two different experience. Because i was undrafted. Rookie free agent. But i always love like back in the day the old school like watching special teams because we knew that like somebody that check engine light is coming on third third quarter because people don't realize that when you like the second string you pretty much played in tire first game and you but you you still have the responsibility for planning special teams because those are the special teams that you're going to go against. What are you looking for tonight. Like what the the the not. The follow the football stuff. What's the stuff you looking for tonight between the dallas cowboys and the in steelers and and what's going to entertain you. Well i wanna see what might mccarthy's office is gonna look like like i mean listen. I know that they're not game plan or anything like that. But you're gonna see the staples that they plan on having throughout the course of the season like they're running their based systems out there. So i just wanna see what the cowboys offense in two hundred. Mike mccarthy is gonna look like right i mean. It was a work in progress last year. Dak prescott had the injury early on. But i mean if you go back and think about what last year was. I mean you're talking about not having a ota's minicamps modify training camp with no preseason game so all of those players were trying to figure it out on the fly. I think the one thing that we can probably look at it as a take away from this. Like what is that cowboys offense going to look like. And then on the flip side. What is the defense. Going to look like under dan quinn so just trying to see what kind of schemes they're gonna be executing and based on you know based on that we can kind of get a pretty good idea of what the identity of this cowboys team in twenty twenty. One is going to be crazy. I i wanna see if mike michael parson is as advertised because listen. I didn't see a lot of opportunities when he had to run through a pulling guard or take on like somebody that was physical. I wanna see nausea harris. I wanna see parson in the middle of that straight straight straight ahead no fare dodging man and see who got the dog and i want to see it. These guys going to come in and going to be some dogs. Because that's going to say that the league is in a good place because we've taken the physicality out of football right now about. I feel like a lot of times. We'll watch football. Watch a lot of basketball players out there that skate and china beyond leading athletic. But i gonna see if somebody's going bust somebody in the mouth man. Because that's that's what attracts me to the game. The violence in physicality and i wanna to a parsons about that or he just somebody that looks good. Look like tarzan play like jane. Ooh wow oh not the tarzan apply and at too you know since the preseason off a little sexist. It's a little listening okay. So you figure out a better expression for that we neanderthal of. We saw a fight at giants camp. Just a few days ago. I know that you guys paid attention to that on your show. And then of course how joe judge handled it making. The guy's run gases also making them do some push-ups out there Your bart was over here kind of laughing about it..

That's a domain defy lines dot com will add to the show links horizon. It's twenty twenty one. We're looking out to the future. What else is under brain. What are you thinking about anything. You're confused about excited about worried about as we look to the knock on wood pandemic sort of getting into our rear view mirror. Hopefully what will be interesting. I spend my time in crypto syntax and both management like what that means for retail investing coming out of this. There's obviously been this. Massive amount of interest feel have been at home training has been entertainment for a lot of folks man our back open looking god side and do different things. And we see a lull in the retail trading the trading environment. I think be certainly cut. So that's something near term that i think will be interesting to watch long-term most the time is just what crypto is going to mean to the world because i think that that's the really big revolutionary thing. That's happening right now. Anything in particular when you think of the adoption that we look back on you think people are not appreciating so we are doing this conversation. Twenty thirty via hologram. I'm on the moon. You're on mars. Is there anything you think people that you believe that just are not appreciating either that's consensus or not but just something that doesn't have to be a unique inside it could be one you think is really important to know. The words predict the future. I'm not sure if there's like specific things that will point to. I do think that there are from. Bitcoin is and asset class. I do think we'll look back at. Michael sailor is doing and walter jones and ray dahlia coming in like. I think that those will be like real turning points. Look back on and like this is when it became mainstream asset class. I think that we still haven't seen things like stable coins. In dollarisation of the world are dollars of parts of the world like we haven't seen those watershed moments yet crypto becoming the infrastructure that a lot of financial services running on which i think will eventually agree. Haven't really seen those yet. I think we're starting to see some interesting. Things compound releasing their treasury product physically any intact. Anyone can just plug in and earn four percent interest and on the back end. That's going into defy like. That's really interesting. But i don't think we've seen those big watershed moments will look back on. I think a lot of those have yet to come still incredibly early in this face. It's sometimes when i talk to people that aren't in crypto and they're not paying any attention to it which is still the majority of the world. I can't believe what a lot of people aren't paying any attention to because when we look back on it this is just going to be a massive shift. I believe what's been your most memorable investment good bad inbetween so collartoo. We've talked about both of them. One acre trader growing up on a farm. That's near and dear to my heart so being able to invest in something that a farmer isn't hopes people invest in farms. That's very memorable to me. The second is trading you which we talked about that was memorable for me because it was a non consensus investment both in the industry and some even within jump we invested there in two thousand eighteen and i think a lot of people thought charting and social network for traders. That just wasn't a big idea. Was what a lot of people thought at the time. In addition at that time the team was largely in russia. Which was i think. A complicated for a lot of investors get their head around so it's one of those things that was non consensus in the industry. I feel like that's where you make your money. Investing it's being non-contentious being right like that was one that was not consensus investment and it just turned out incredibly well as i mentioned. It's number one investing site in the world. Now what's crazy because it's interesting because you would think i there's so much competition in that world but i guess on the flip side. There's so much fat. I mean we pay bloomberg. I don't even know twenty thousand plus for a terminal so so maybe there's a lot of fat to cut out and you can tell carter. I'm gonna put him in a headlock this fall till he gets us on the cap table. I think they're doing really cool. Work where do you stand in the fundraising process.

So y'all keep coming out here with this level play like why aren't we seeing maximum performance from everyone because other team put it on them and then guess what. You gotta do respond. Sometimes you can't. Here's an example when short you've been on the team before and play where the team ball but you or you ball and the team didn't point being. We used to play the seattle seahawks. When i was playing seven and nine eight every year. They wanted special ninety seven and we win. we win. we win. And then everybody's like what you do walter. Jones today underwater jones wherever he was stepping down. My face was step does all. I want to hear that. It's don't get mad at me. Coming up naomi a soccer. We gotta get into this again which you slick is calling for better protection for players with the media. We have a lot more own. This next don't speak for yourself like they just showed up. Couldn't naomi asaka pulled out of the french open a month ago skipped wimbledon signing her mental health and dealing with the media now. She pinned an essay in time. Magazines olympic preview. Saying in part quote. I felt a great amount of pressure to disclose my simply. Frankly because depressed. Indeterminate did not believe she added that. She wants to see measures to protect. Athletes with the media is with us so rip. You're a member of the media. Naomi a soccer right saying athletes. Better protection in the media. No she's not right because she's not clear about what. Athletes need to be protected from and if an issue is important to you whether it's social justice or it's mental health then it is vital that you be clear in order to avoid leaving the open leaving it open for your critics to question your cause and this. This subject is important to me and personal. Because i have some people that are close to me that have dealt with depression and have dealt with performance anxiety as a result of and. It's not something that i had ever experienced before and i've been on a learning curve in terms of understanding it but if you're going to go out into the public eye it's important to be clear on what it is that you are talking about and before we can address the what in terms of what has to change. We have to know why and there are so many things that naomi has said. That are confusing. She loves the press and yet she needs to be protected from them. She wants to change press conferences but the truth is that she just doesn't love all press conferences and we could go down the line in terms of the confusion that is created here and so in terms of. I don't wanna be a spokesman for mental health and yet you writing an essay a first person essay and you were on the cover of time magazine talking about mental health. So it's not the issue of mental health. That is concerning for me here. it's that naomi is approaching in a way. That is really hard to figure out exactly what she's after. It sounds to me like she wants her choice of which press conferences do. And which conferences not to do and that is a completely different subject from the issue of mental health whether it's athletes or society at large slick. I do think. Naomi osaka's right. And i don't think he is doing everything right but i do think that she is right. We know that mentally. We are behind where we should be as a society as far as awareness but physically and pertaining to and trying to tend to the needs physically relatively caught up two thousand fourteen the nfl. It said you know what we need. A neutral neurologist on the sidelines because players are getting concussions and they are willingly running back into the games. The team doctors are letting them run back into the games. The coaches and assistant coaches are also letting these players run back into the games even at their own expense even at the expense of their own health. However the nfl said for the betterment of the athletes we're going to have a neutral arbitrator neurologist. You're on the sideline not paid by the team. You need to check out the player when there was a head injury before they can go back into the game if we do that to watch out for an athlete's physical health. Why not do that to watch out for an athlete's mental health. Why not have a psychologist. A neutral psychologist consulted. Where they he or she can see if the athlete is fred. Ready prepped to answer a question or for question that might be dispiriting that neutral psychologists can say you know what next question we know in life that we need to tend to the physical and we've taken steps to tend to the physical like the. Nfl did in two thousand fourteen. Why don't we take those same steps to tend to the mental if we're all in agreement that we haven't paid enough attention to our mental health as we have our physical health. We've caught up on. Some of the physical health issues is time. We catch up on the mental health issues. All end in story form when i was playing for the eagles. Thirteen fourteen and fifteen. Every morning we add to do a cns check central nervous system. We would attach electrodes to our paul to our forehead. It would gauge our bodies readiness for activity. It would send them to our director of sports science. It would send the results to them based upon those results they would dictate how much practice you individual would participate in. Do we need to cut practice short for you. Do we need to give you more rest or recovery. Time based upon your central nervous system they were trying to gauge your limitations physically. We've gone above and beyond to measure physical limitations. It's time we go above and beyond to mental meant to measure mental limitations as well i'm with slick. I think athletes are already protected. If you've ever had a professional athlete experience at the lowest level all the way to being number one in the world and playing tennis you understand how we have a protected experience. I've talked time and time again. How i had elders grown men who used to pick up sweaty towels full of blood and other fluids on it from all of the players just walking around because we didn't have the time or the focus to even drop it in the laundromat. So we know we have a protected experience. I just give you that example to illustrate how we're protected. We go to a different city. There's police escorts nice to always say why we got the police escort. No one knows on his damn tinted bus. If you just let us get to the hotel but you bring in all of this attention etc etc. I'm only saying that. Because i want to highlight their pro sports. The point zero zero one percent of ever walked planet to be blessed enough to play pro. Sports all understand that pro. Sports is darwinism at his finest. Let me tell you that. And since we're going to talk about it like that because the number supported so few can do it so few attain it is. Survival of the fittest. And that's not just the physical conversation. That's a mental conversation so if we truly respect mental health as much as we're trying to say we respect physical health. Well let's try to take the training wheels off the conversation if you really want them to be treated equally. If you're physically compromised to appoint in pro sports guess what you can't play or you're going to have to play compromised. Same thing these. Kurt with mental health. If we're going to really respect it as an equal if you're compromise mentally there's gonna be consequences that come from that as well. The problem with mental health is the abstract. There's no objective measures to the same degree as there are physical health measures so people stopped short of their criticism harshness because they don't even know what the end game in goal is in terms of your mental health. So did you have a bad day. Do you have nervousness or is it a symptom of anxiety or is it depression. All of those things are impossible to fully measure in these moments. so i'll say it.

September eleventh changed the world. Our deepest fears now haunt us. I am convinced that military action will not prevent further acts of international terrorism against the united states matching. How how scary. It must have been to stand up and say that. I mean we were so terrorized terrified as a country but to have that courage of conviction to have that sense of purpose and moral compass to have the bravery to stand up and say this horrific act has made me come to a different conclusion than all the rest of you than every other member of congress matching what that took in the moment california california congresswoman barbara lee was the sole member of congress who decided that day that the tragedy of nine eleven just days earlier horrible as it was was not a good justification for an open ended legal authorization to get the us involved anywhere in the world what would become decades of war. You're later the house is set to vote on yet. Another blanket authorization for the use of military force. This one pegged to an invasion of iraq that time when the vote came for the barbara was not alone. One hundred and thirty two of her fellow house members voted with barbara lee against authorizing the use of force for the iraq war. That wasn't enough to stop the bill and so instead of one forever war america then had to this year will mark. Twenty years since congressman. Barbara lee took that first. Soul vote against america's unending wars the legal authorization that allowed america to use military force in the name of nine eleven. In a way that was unintended and global during the time that those authorizations for the use of force have remained in place they've been used as justification for all kinds of military interventions all around the world even ones that had precisely zero to do with iraq or afghanistan or nine eleven it became a blanket authorization for the use of military force at the president. Say so without congress ever having to weigh in again but now all of a sudden things appear to be changing today. The house of representatives voted on a resolution to repeal the authorization for use of military force. The second one the one that started the iraq war the lead sponsor of the bill to end one of america's longest wars to end to repeal the authorization of military force was none other than the same congresswoman barbara lee and this time she not only had company but the majority was on her side the resolution to repeal the authorization for the use of military force past two hundred and sixty eight to one hundred sixty persist persist. Persist persist takes forever and then all of a sudden it habits threatening now democratic california congresswoman barbara lee congresswoman lee. It's a real pleasure to have you here. Thank you so much. It's been such a huge day today. Thank you nice. Being with you. Rachel before i actually ask you about the also have to ask you about the juneteenth vote and the signing ceremony. Am i correct that you were at the signing ceremony today when president made it along recovers rachel because this is quite a historical moment for our country we need to make sure. The stories are told about everyone in our country including african americans in the horrific barbaric middle passage and and slavery. And what happened. And i just have to say is per- slow for me. Also because my grandfather who helped raise me in texas was born in galveston texas in eighteen. Seventy by and my great grandmother. banning wilson wasn't slammed in around galveston one of the small towns. And so this is really a major deal. We've celebrated at all our lives I moved to california in one thousand nine hundred sixty but i continued to celebrate june cleaver. The my family did so. This is really remarkable moment but it also is a moment press to recommit ourselves to finish the unfinished business of justice in racial equity in true freedom for african americans for you given the personal connection that you just described the national commemoration of juneteenth and your personal role the your honestly legendary bravery on the issue of authorizing military force after the terrorist attacks of nine eleven to have these two things coming together at the same time in the house like literally within twenty four hours. This must be a pretty momentous time in in your life this must feel like you sort of risen to the peak. Rachel upset you. It's overwhelming in some respects but it just reminds me that this is a long haul. We're in is not a sprint. It's a marathon. And i hope our young people understand that the fight for justice the fight the fight for democracy and to protect our constitution. Sometimes just doesn't happen right away but we have to be persistent. We have to know what we're doing. We have to believe. My dad was in the military twenty five years. I'm a military breath and there was no way that akkad authorized the use of force forever and that was a sixty word resolution Right after nine eleven authorizations that i just could not support. It was interesting to me to see that. I think it was forty nine. Republican members of the house joined more than two hundred democrats in making this vote happen. I wanted to ask if were surprised. By how bipartisan. This vote was i feel like i've seen some interesting contours where this issue of authorizing military force and indeed. The use of american military force around the world doesn't always fall neatly on partisan lines. I wanted to ask if that those total surprise you at all and if if that gives you any confidence predicting what might happen in the senate which of course would need to do the same thing in order for this to get president. Biden's desk with built the support over the years. I just want to say. I have to thank the chair of the foreign affairs. Committee congressman gregory. Meeks and speaker pelosi. And mr hoyer for helping us navigate this to get into the floor with the american legion supported the americans for prosperity without war the friends committee. So this doesn't just happen overnight. We have built bipartisan support. Years and i was buried a pleased that we got forty nine a republican votes. I've been working with so many in after member. walter jones. Pass away a few years ago. He helped me start. Making this a bipartisan effort. And so here we are now moving onto the senate spoken with senator mccain. Were cautiously optimistic. That we'll be able to move this forward. The president has indicated. he is ready to sign an issue What we call a statement of support a sap and so we have to keep working them and i'm hopeful and confident sooner or later. Hopefully this year we will get the president by his desk for signature while it is. It is your work that is bearing fruit tonight in so many ways. I don't know about your your personal situation in your life right now congresswoman lee. But you better have somebody who has bought you flowers or at least a cocktail tonight. Because this is the culmination of a lot of very hard work and it's a testament to your leadership man. Thank you so much thank you. Rachel really enjoyed the with you. All right i. As i said that bill that passed the house today in an overwhelming vote and a very bipartisan. Vote it now. Heads to the senate. And as congressman. Womanly just mentioned there. The chief advocate for repealing this authorization for the use of military force. Chief advocate for. Repealing that in the senate has been. Virginia democratic senator. Tim kaine senator. Kaine also happens to sit on the senate foreign relations committee. That's going to be. The first place gets a vote in the senate senator. Kaine joins us live now. Senator thank you so much for being here. I really appreciate you taking the time tonight. Rachel straight to be with you and especially to follow barbara. Because she's been just so fantastic on this issue. June the in math repeal. She needs to buy a lottery ticket before midnight. Tonight because senator. She said that she's talked with you about what happens here. Next as i mentioned. I feel like the partisan lines don't map neatly onto this issue either. Terms of using us military force in specific instances or at the idea of these open ended authorizations where it never has to come back to congress and we essentially cede that power to the president away that the constitution didn't really mean for us to do because it doesn't have neat partisan lines. Neat partisan mapping. I do feel like sometimes these things are hard to predict in the senate do you share congresswoman lease cautious optimism. That this is this. Repeal is to pass the senate.

"Left side by the little bit of the whole teachers Like moving across the 40 midfield 45 years on the run, wins 40 horses back 35 looking down. He's out there. 2015. We could go. Please gonna go Touchdown Seahawks. Oh, my word or 67 Yard run Marchand, which on believable Yeah. Uh, I grew up a Raiders fan, and that is one of my favorite football plays of all time. What an iconic called to write like. I mean, to this day I touched us. See you hear that? You're just like, yeah. Why isn't that everyone's ring tone right now, man? I mean, we gotta get fired up is a city man. I mean, there's a lot going on. There's Cove it. There's a lot, but this is something on Dino. A lot of people don't like this. I love that sports has the ability to do this to unify us to have a space is music, sports art stuff like that? And so, this beast mode run, man. I remember where I was when that happened, man. I mean, I remember going into the playoff game thinking Oh, man, we're gonna lose for seven and nine. Here comes Drew Brees and the Saints. Had, man. I mean, it was it was pandemonium like this is to me. This is what really kicked the Seahawks into the gear that we're in now this run of years and If Marchand is not, you know, one of the best Seahawks ever wherever you have him ranked. He's definitely one of the most beloved Seahawks just run. One of the reasons I was gonna ask you about that so So This is that this is a question I'm going to try and make. This is clear as I can. I don't know if I'm gonna be able to express it correctly. Yeah, I am. You know, when you talk about players list to say, you know the Richard Sherman the camp chancellors, the players who were really Michael Bennett's great example really both. Like highly individualistic people, obviously in a team environment, But people who were not afraid to speak their mind and Marshawn when he was speaking did speak is mine and by not speaking spoke a little more loudly. And and I would say, like They seem to me like these are all players and again. I know I've got my prejudice here. Growing up a Raiders fan. They all seem like the type of players that the Raiders historically have embraced. Maybe the old school Raiders, maybe not so much anymore that they liked these sort of characters these people would say and do stuff. It never seemed to me like that's what Seattle liked, except that Would be you'd be hard pressed to say if people had to pick Who's your favorite player Russell Wilson or Marshawn Lynch. I think it be at least a tie it not in favor of Martian, or am I wrong about that? I think that Marshawn Lynch would actually win That, right? Who's your favorite, right? If you say whose boobs like Who's going to go down as a better Seahawk? It'll be right. No question. Who's your favorite? Be? Marshall? Your emotional connection. Yeah, I think you just wonderfully described the Pete Carroll effect right that Pete Carroll's shifted the culture right When you say that's not what Seattle typically embrace. It was Pete Carroll, who said This is what we need. We need this. He cause it great right, so he has his friend concept around what kind of player is looking for it to go into the background. Etcetera, etcetera. But, yeah, these guys who came in here shifted the culture and it's just been a long run. Jamal Adams is like that right? All of this. It's funny because I was just having this debate with a friend of mine today. Who do you think I'm just curious? We're shooting it off the hit now and I'm loving that you win here. Who would you say is the The best Seahawk ever the greatest Seahawk ever. Right? What would your opinion be? Anybody come to mind? Yeah, I'd still say. I mean, I So there's my the portal by which I've you. Seahawks is whom I deeply jealous that didn't end up on the Raiders and Marcia did and the marsh son did end up there, and I got to say one of the things that made me so Seahawks rank now is my number two. Favorite team They never would. When they were both me and see with the Raiders. They typically played really well against Raiders. So I dislike the Seahawks intensely. But you're up here and you watch how happy everyone in town is, and it's hard not to get caught up in that. So I'd say Seahawks rank now they moved into that number two status. The number two status was always open for competition anyway. So okay, I would say. And that defense on that team, the Super Bowl winning team I was. I had like waves of jealousy, because it may be reminded me of when I was a kid and the way the Raiders used to play, and so I would say that defense would be my favorite, but probably E. Don't know. Probably it would be Marchand Lynch. Or it would just be Cam chancellor. Just because I've got such deep affection for the safety position anyway, that anyone who was just like who can deliver that play that Keeps on given. Yeah, You know, I like that. And Marshall was kind of like that on the offensive side of the ball, so I would put it right there. If I had to say best Seahawks ever, it's on. It's gonna be weird. It's good. I'm going to go Walter Jones or Cortez Kennedy. Those were great once it was a great ones. Yeah, and then I mean Bobby Wagner's climbing into that. I think when it's all said and done, Russell Wilson will be in there as well s O, You know, it takes time to get there, but favorite Marshawn Lynch is right at the top. Um It's just It's been a interesting I'll say this. It's been an interesting run. I think this is funny. I have a friend of mine. One of my good friends is a Raiders fan. So this is so funny because he texts me every week. And, like, two days ago, he text me the Raider schedule for next next year, and I'm like, dude. Dude, we have a playoff game this Saturday and you're already looking to the future. What miserable boo existence to be a Raiders fan? You have no idea how I'm able to stay long decade. Any technique. He sends me this schedule and he's like, Yeah, we're gonna be 12 and three and I looked at him like No. You're gonna be 18 8 next year NBA tonight. Next year, That's as good as it gets. Enjoy your miserable existence and your coach for the next decade that you're gonna have, um all right. I'm not sorry. I'm I'm not That is enough. We've been getting along to this point You can read. You can still have joy and both running through the tunnel.
