27 Burst results for "Walter Payton"
Fresh update on "walter payton" discussed on The Bill Simmons Podcast
"He did a piece about the rushing leaders for ten years spurts. Every year, over the course of history. So basically, from 84 to 93 from 85 to 94. So it's like the previous ten years who led the league the most. From 2011 to 2020. Who do you think had the most rushing yards? So just before you answer that, I'll give you some examples. So OJ, 1966 to 1975, he's the leader. He was also the leader in the ten year span starting in 67, 68, 69, 70 and 71. Pretty good player. Yeah, for 6 straight years, he still had the most. Walter Payton was one, two, three, 7 years. Dickerson was one, two, three, 7 years. Sanders was, et cetera, et cetera. Adrian Peterson was our leader from 17 to 2016. And again, from a way to 17. Lesean McCoy. O 9 to 2018, and then 2010 to 2019. So who is the leader from 11 to 20? 11 to 20, I would still go Adrian Peterson. Is that wrong? It was Frank Gore, wow. It was like the biggest wow I've had in 2021. You know he had like by a hundredth guess. I think he's the fourth all time leading rusher in NFL history. Quietly gore is going to be a first ballot Hall of Famer. Now I know he hasn't put all the steerable championships, but he's got the numbers. The other interesting one you mentioned is Lesean McCoy, because he's not going to get a lot of Hall of Fame talk when he's up. But at the end of the year, end of his career, he won a Super Bowl with the Buccaneers and the chiefs. If you want to talk about a ring that does a ring matter, does it matter what you did for that team or does having a ring matter? Because he's got two Super Bowl rings and huge numbers as well. And the running back position, which is where I'll go with Derrick Henry here. It's dying. Like, the numbers are what they fall off drastically. So I said this on Dan Patrick and I got a lot of feedback of like, don't try to be a hot take guy. It doesn't work for you, but if Derek Henry never takes a snap again, is he a Hall of Famer and everyone says no right away, but he's led the league in rushing twice. He's taking his team to the playoffs twice. And I think in his generation, his time, he was the greatest running back for a nice four year span. If you want to write the history books, he's the best at his position for a nice chunk of time. I don't think it's that crazy to say if he finishes this season with 2000 yards and never plays again. There are Henry might be going to canton. Terrell Davis had a similar like if Henry's career stops today and Terrell Davis, I thought was one of the 5 best running backs I've seen in my life. And he had to push him into super bowls. He had a two rings that he was better in the place than he was the regular season. That was stupid. It took that long. One thing along your line on Henry. So if you look at this year by year, with how many for the ten year periods, like Sanders from 89 to 98 was over 15,000 yards. So that's the range is 13 to 15. It starts dipping. Until we get to like, you know, like the last Tomlinson year is O three to 12. It was only 10,765. The next year Steven Jackson was a ten year leader. He was, but he was under 11,002. And then it kind of settles between ten or 11. Last year was Frank Gore at 95 86. So you're talking about the last of a dying breed. Henry for his career, which started in 2016. He's at 66 43 already. And if you figure add a thousand that, 76, 43. So by next year, assuming he's still got he'll be our guy for like 5 years in a row. Yeah, because nobody else is going to touch that. With the 17 games, which makes it all walk like he might even put up more yards. He might put up 2200 yards if he stays healthy. And I know we always roll our eyes about the player on Instagram who posts the video and he's like, off season. I'm gonna do a box jump, and it's gonna, you know, it's gonna be the lead segment on good morning football. Check out juju Smith Schuster's box jump. And that's what we do. And it's just like, I'm like, all right, they all work out. It's just Derek Henry, apparently, is like one of these guys that there is nothing in his life, other.
J.J. Watt is leaving the Houston Texans
"Talk about it real quick here about the current state of the nfl. All right to shawn watson is going to be somebody that's talked about if this is the way the. Nfl becomes with high super caliber superstar quarterbacks wanting out of their russell wilson is somebody you would never think whatever asked to be traded or moved or anything other than go hawks matthew stafford we thought he was potential gonna die on a football field while wearing alliance jersey because he would never ever come out and say hey. This is not for me anymore. Okay i would like to potentially go on and have success somewhere because when legacies are talked about hall of fames or talked about. I just heard what happened. philip rivers. I would like that not to happen to me. But this is not the type of guy i am at all now got. Jj watt not that type guy at all by all accounts. He's going in saying. Get me out of here. That's when it gets interesting because now it's not you know because back in the day they would move somebody is they're labeled a distraction. Let's get out of here. Let's go do whatever now. It's like all of the biggest name players that you would never expect a walter payton man of the year potentially the greatest philanthropic person in the nfl is potentially saying you know what i mean a new landscape. I'm intrigued to see how this continues. How each of these situations gets talked about judge in how many of them actually happened. Because the seahawks without russ stink.

"And the team Hochberg phone line from WGN television. It's Jared. Peyton. Actually, Jared, I could introduce you that way, or I could just say you were the star athlete. Say Invite ER and the most valuable player of the 2014 Orange Bowl. You went to the University of Miami or I can point out that you had 33 carries for 105 yards and two touchdowns in 2005 for the Tennessee Titans. Which introduction Do you prefer? Probably the athletes from from same body high. That one right there. That one suits me the best father that I love that one way like Sena 10 30 with Dan Ronan GN sports, and we saw Russell Wilson on TV, The Seahawks quarterback or in the Walter Payton, Man of the Year Award for Charitable work Now, usually you you've been down at the Super Bowl to present that award, haven't you? Yes, this year a little bit different with with Kobe did. We just decided not to make the trip this year, But it was Bob was actually kind of refreshing a little bit because I mean, I know I don't want to sound. I know your listeners. Everybody would love to go to the Super Bowl. I've been going since 99 4. You know, my family and I have to actually be home and watch. It gave us different perspectives this time, and normally we know who's actually going to win before, like. The day before. So, like the Friday before NFL honors on Saturday, we know who the winner is. This time we didn't know it all. So it we were all waiting like everybody else. And my mom, My sister and I, we all talked and you said, Man, it was this was this is actually kind of fun to not know and not have to dress up and be home to watch it for Russell Wilson, a phenomenal guy. What he's doing on and off the field and just kind of upset that we didn't get a chance to meet him in person, But it sounds like sometime this week. We're jumping on the zoom call with him. I'm just hoping that Sierra's actually his wife is on. Call as well because I'm a huge fan of hers. Well, listen, Russell Wilson, he's donated more than a million meals to feeding America and food lifeline. He's he's helped raise the equivalent of more than 50 million meals for people who need that, so he's an impressive young man. His name. Yes, he is. And it's It's just a testament to hear his speech and know him talking about his daddy wish that his dad was here to see you know this award and that my dad was his favorite player and man, it just I just was I was in tears. The whole family was in tears because just to see the impact that my dad has, you know on the game of football, but also outside of football, and the guys wanna win this award more than they want to win the M V P award, and that it's the highest honor in in the end itself, and that has my dad's name on it. It's still it gives me the chills, and I think it takes us back a little bit. And You know, we see him his dad but the world season as you know, the superhero who, you know, war 34 on Sundays, and he was all that. But he was also just a great person on not to steal Then just honored tol him dead. It zah pretty cool moment. Yeah, I had the honor of interviewing him a couple of times and it was always a lot of fun. That's for sure. He was a joke. He was a jokester. So I mean, that's where I get it from a little bit. Just he always had to be on your toes when you were interviewing, that's for sure. By the way, I J P. I agree with you about Russell Wilson speech, Although was tremendous and why watching the awards. I think it's nice to that they Made the Walter Payton Man of the Year award. It was like the big award of the night. I mean, they kind of keep it for the end of the show, so that I think underscores the significance And and just how important this award is. To the NFL. I just want to get your thought is someone who's been to the Super Bowl every year since 1999 Aside from the obvious, which, of course, is the Tom Brady wins another one? What's your biggest takeaway from the game yesterday? Oh, biggest takeaway. I tweeted it, Dave. It's you know, everybody really wants these high flying offenses in the NFL, and that's where you know, I think that the NFL's heading and you could see that with Casey and their offense, I to me it was it was watching how defense is still are, you know so dominant that they win you championships and that you can run the football. I mean, those are two things I took away from from the game is that everybody wants these high flying off. And rightfully so, because that's where the NFL's going. But defense is when championships and being able to control the game on the ground, and that's what what Tampa did, and it doesn't matter if you're the favorite coming in. If you have a game plan, Todd Bowles had an unbelievable game plan. The other thing that jumped out to me is that we actually made it to a Super Bowl. I didn't think we would make it there with the pandemic and so hats off to the NFL. Those players for you know it wasn't perfect, but they found a way to be able to make it happen, and they made the greatest game in the world. They made it happen, and so it gave us an opportunity to be able to see it all the way through to the end, and so That's all to Roger Goodell in the NFL for being able to have those protocols in place for us to have a Super Bowl to watch win for all of us. The pride and joy have seen violators. It's Jared Peyton, and we'll be watching a deputy on TV as always. Thanks for the time this morning, Jared These guys made 46 the last word on those Super Bowl commercials.

Russell Wilson is the epitome of what you want from a franchise player. No, he's never won the M v P, But he's a great athlete and an even better person. At the NFL honors, the league recognized that Wilson's value stretches far beyond The white lines. Russell Wilson was named the Walter Payton, NFL Man of the year for his charitable acts and excellent on and off the field with the help of his wife, Sierra Wilson, and the Why not You foundation donated one million meals to feeding America's food lifeline.

"Give it a shot anyway. This very well could be one of the last times if not the last time we see Drew Brees in an NFL uniforms. We don't know for sure. Maybe he doesn't know for sure. But if no other reason that's critical makes it a game you don't want to miss. And then the Chicago Bears, winning three of their last four, though they lost against the Packers last weekend. They were able to get in because the Cardinals lost to the Rams with very convoluted, But it ain't mate Matt Maggie's team rallies to make the postseason as a wild card. We're pleased to welcome Tom Fair, who Not only is the radio analyst along with Jeff Joanie, AC on the Bears radio network, but is a former Bears offensive lineman who has a Super Bowl ring of his own. From 1985. I gotta ask him when the Bears were in the midst of that six game losing skid. They went from 5 to 1 to six and seven. Did you think it was even possible that they could make the playoffs? No, I didn't because the whole time throughout even the beginning of the season when they were doing well and throughout the six game losing streak, they were always searching for answers on the word rhythm. You know what can How can our offense get into a rhythm? How could we be more productive? How could we get better in the in the red Zone? How could we score more points? And so I think when you had what the defense was accomplishing early in the season And really holding this thing together. It's disappointing that the offense couldn't compliment them more. But then I was surprised that they've been able to pull out of this tailspin. In kind, invent a new Mitchell, Travis Key and a better David Montgomery. And it's really factored in the way the office is playing and not to mention, you know, change is on the offensive line. I don't allied earlier in the season about the run game and how critical that was, and it was nearly not existent. So then what happened to spring Montgomery to the point where he's breaking through with big runs, and that game that ground attack becomes a threat. You know when they put Sam must differ in its center. He was a real calming, uh, feature to this offense line, something that was needed, And then they took Cody White hair, the center who's a more powerful offense of guard. Put him over the left guard and then brought in Alex bars at the right guard position. Um, and then Jim Rainey said he went out the right tackle, and they really don't compliment it. David Montgomery really well, But David Montgomery's a heck of a player, man. This guy is, um you know 1st 2nd 3rd down Run blocker. Catch, um And I always say, you know, having a chance to have played with Walter Payton. You think some of these bags that have come across the bears that Walter Payton would be proud of watching them and the way they play and David Montgomery certainly has been that. But you know, like I have two complimentary biscuit. Because kind of the reinvention of the use of Mitchell to this key Mitchell Travis Key has really stressed. The edges of the defense, so I think it opens up bigger creases, bigger running lanes. It allows the offensive line, get movement on the first level and get up to the second level. And, you know, Mitch has been able to, um Be really successful on the move more so than just being a stationary in the tackle box quarterback So David Montgomery ends up over 1000 yards, which is great eight touchdowns. And as you mentioned Travis Key, really playing better in that surge toward the end of the regular season, Tom there's part of the Bears radio broadcast, also a former bear himself. Super Bowl champ with them back in 85. It's after hours here on CBS Sports Radio, when you say the reinvention of Travis Key, The biggest change is that the fact that they kind of sprung him lose to it allowed him to move around. They They 11 move around. They have sprung him lose a lot of the user's legs, get his vision out into opening sights, rather than trying to stay inside the tackle box and see over everybody. Um, and you know what's really helped him and it doesn't seem like a big thing. But it is when, early in the season, one of Mitchell was running a lot out of just a shotgun. Kind of Ah, formation. They were able to, you know, focus on Mitch and also be affected and stopping the running game. So then they put Mitch behind center and he's created more deceptive with this is initial movement. Whether it's something that's an innocent hand off the David Montgomery Or a jet sweet the Darnell money or a fake David Montgomery Inn, slipping out the back side and have multiple targets with easy sight lines with no pressure in his face. So all those types of things have helped the Bears offense, But it's increased. Mitch is comfort zone his his confidence. Um, the place they call. He's got a good command because he's he's been a lot better at using the hard count to getting the opponents to jump. You know, two or three times a game. So all these little elements you need for the big picture of quarterback play, Mrs really been able to help himself and built laser calling plays. In this latter part of the season. You know, he's got a different way of using Travis Key than maybe Nagy was calling plays earlier in the season. How critical is Alan Robinson to the success of this offense? He's huge man. He is just a stud because I think his work ethic. It carries a lot of weight in practice because he's and he needs to be a big influence on Anthony Miller on Darnell Mooney on Jovon whims on Riley, Ridley all these young guys that have talent. What they don't understand the requirements it takes if you want to be in every day, every down player and I think Alan Robinson has just been Ah, model citizen for the Bears. And he's made difficult catches for Travis Key and Nick Foles throughout this whole season, and you know he means a lot to it. He wasn't targeted very much last week. So it's going to be interesting to see what role he has this week. If, in fact, Darnell Mooney is injured..

I'm quite certain they've already started. Reaching out to potential replacements. You hear all sorts of names interesting that You know, we have talked about Jim Harbaugh. And the NFL being interested in hardball. Mike Florio pro football talk. Put that out there that there were you no more than a couple of clubs that would be interested.

"Listen, I And I told you this before, and you never took it for granted at any time. But like Walter was always around the facility. Not every day but was always there and then all, Walter was on the sidelines for the majority of the games. And like he treated me the same way he would have treated like Neil Anderson or Mongo. Like in a matter of you were the 53rd guy on the roster. You were the number one guy on the roster. Walter was always there to kind of pick you up when you were down or congratulate you when things were going well, so like Walter was around more than probably any of the other greats. So you were always in awe. But then Dick Butkus would be around at times.

"Today at about commissioner Roger Goodell and took to Twitter with a surprising message in which she expressed regret for the NFL not doing a better job on speaking up on behalf of players when it came to issues of police brutality and racism we the National Football League condemn racism in the systematic oppression of black people with the National Football League commit we were wrong for not listening to NFL players earlier and encourage all to speak out peacefully protest read the National Football League believe black lives matter I personally protest with you and want to be part of a much needed change in this country I'm within the last hour saints quarterback drew Brees released in this letter to president trump on his Instagram page when she tells them that the issues at hand or not about the American flag but rather about injustices against African Americans he wrote we have the white community need to listen and learn from the pain and suffering of our black communities we must acknowledge the problems identified the solutions and then put this into action the black community can not do it alone this will require all of us no G. P. I. E. I think a lot of people really surprised the here some of the things that drew Brees has said he's sort of taken some of them back please apologise now he's addressing the president what are your opinions on it all well from the beginning more and I have a lot of respect the Jew breezes he's a future former Walter Payton man of the year award winner bye he would if he was off the mark when he made those comments and just with the time that we're in right now Indian office markets sets all things but the one thing is is that we're starting to see him come back and make these apologies and hopefully moving forward you know not just his words with actions I want to see actions are to resume with the NFL as well to hear Roger Goodell and the NFL step up that's good on their end as well you know they have the social justice reform groups and all the stuff that they're doing what we have to see more action and in those comments from Roger Goodell there was no sorry to Colin Capra Nick so I want to see that maybe men that relationship as well but I think it steps in the right direction for not only drew Brees but also for the

Eli Manning and the Hall of Fame: The case for and against
"Ally manning thing announced his retirement on Wednesday retiring after sixteen seasons. He's thirty nine years old The giants quarterback who was of course supplanted by Danny dimes. This year but was a rock for for many years is now heads into retirement and it makes sense Meena In fact as a New York I all my friends are giant spans. I was on a tax change just the day before this news broke. And we're talking about that. Allies GonNA retire probably soon. Because when you look at the landscape with all these older quarterbacks on the market and what allies allies been doing the last couple of years. It never made sense that he was going to find a place to start games or perhaps he didn't want to be a backup. So this all made sense but still it. It is the end of an era in New York. I would love nothing more to come in here and defy I. I think what you all know. I'm about to say about Eli Manning I should not be wh- down calls US football cools right. Yeah I would love to say you know what guys you can't tell the story of football without Eli Manning which by the way why why is he the only person who gets that benefit say that about anyone else other than Eli. There's a lot of guys you can't tell the story of football without Aaron Hernandez put them in the hall of fame or if you want to look at pat super we were both. I mean they don't want any of them without dont`a hightower that's a holiday thing. Greg is compared. Eli Manning to know first. Ten Sahal Hyphen reductionist could be just one thing. You consider about a candidate quite well the few want ally in the holly. It's either two cases. One one is longevity. which is I think? A lot of people throw out. Because there's just too many guys who would get in by that and then the other is the two super bowls in the story thing. That's just not about how I would define it. It just becomes an argument. About how do you define the hall of fame. I think in my case against him has always been and yeah. I've been making this case for probably eight or nine years. So this is how long he's been average He's just been averaged entire career. Average in completion percentage yards per attempt. He's actually really way. Below average in the law of the interception categories passer rating these average. He's just for the time he entered the league to the time he left the league. He was an average quarterback over or that span. I I still don't like that being the conversation though when he retired. I we've had this argument so many times that I think we're just tired of it like we've said everything that there is to say about. Eli Manning in the Hall of Famer Eli Manning in general that. I actually was annoyed almost yesterday that that's the conversation when a really great player who was a big part of the league in you know no matter whether he was a top five quarterback no he never was maybe in two two thousand eleven. I went through it once. I think I had him at a top five quarterback one year top ten quarterback only one other your. Yeah that's not the hall of fame but like immediately the second he retires. The entire conversation is like the start of the public hall of fame. Talk which is GONNA be. Never any people are so confident about what's going to happen you don't I know what's going to happen becoming. We were like you know he will be in. It's like you don't know that I think the manning name like this is not a new thought but just that we've talked about royalty and stuff that he's sort of this. NFL Family fixture that. The people voting for this. I think they're gonNa Push Eli Manning right in not maybe. CBS voters down. The conversation depends on who he's against. Though you're really does. Conversation will be never ending for five years then going in. I'm sorry I don't listen you. Everybody discounts counting stats and cory will get too caught up or only point at the two rings and the two superbowl. MVP's but I just think there's something that'd be so if he didn't win those super bowls he's he's not he's not going to have him. I get that but there's something to be said and it's always been feel overlooked both on this podcast aspect in general. Because Eli can be a target. I feel like on twitter that the giants drafted him or the chargers. Technically but the giants Brought him into the team in two thousand four. They put him in the lineup in around October that year and then they never had to think about the quarterback position again for the next ten eleven eleven twelve years and I know things didn't end very well but they should have been thinking about it so when you're when you're talking about right ten years okay I'm GonNa say ten years when you think about other teams about your Brown's Mark My jets so many other teams in the league that go through constant search a churn looking for a guy and you end up with a stop. Stopgap and a rookie. You stinks and then a stop Gat and then another rookie. And maybe you hit on something. Like the SEAHAWKS got Russell Wilson. They don't have to think about anything. Russell Wilson's a better player than the but he eli for ten twelve years. They put him in there. He did his job. He was not spectacular but he was steady. You never had to worry about him getting hurt because he never did. He's the most durable the player ever. You'd never had to worry about him saying stupid something stupid to the media. He always handled that very well. You never had to worry about him. Getting into like a behind the scenes drama with with a coach and exploding and him being at odds and using the media to get a point across and all that stuff he was a Walter Payton Man of the year guy he was a total title. Good Dude and in those playoff runs. Then you factor that in for me. He rose up in historic way. And then just beat. Anybody didn't beat the Jacksonville. We'll jaguars didn't beat a Pittsburgh. steelers heat the Patriots and he'd be Bill Bell Check and he'd beat Tom Brady. And if if that's not something that should be given added points knowing who the Patriots are and what they represent in this era of NFL football. I'm sorry I disagreed to just kind of view that uh-huh yeah beat the Patriots. No he beat the greatest team of all time the greatest quarterback in the greatest head coach. I think that means a lot. His team did right playing. Okay Ah in that Super Bowl. I don't think he would say he had the best game. Even the play he's known for is crazy play. That could never be replicated. The two twenty eleven run is what I remember most fondly. Va Man. I think people kind of forget that won the last game of the regular season that they played it was against the cowboys and then the three league games in the NFC playoffs and that Super Bowl he had a collection of some of the most improbable. Low percentage awesome throws goes for five weeks. Stretch that you'll ever see Joe flacco kind of had a somewhat similar run any add little moments like that the year after they won the Super Bowl two thousand eight. He was really good throughout the year but they didn't win the Super Bowl because if eli manning they want it because of their defense I mean they wanna because of Justin Tuck and he learned of it. It's equally reductive to me to say. They won because of the argue he was part of it took to get into the. I mean the kind of connected back to the HIGHTOWER. No one's out here making a case for hightower you kind of do you. You like to throw this one in. I is the single most important outside of Brady and Gronk like the Patriots. Don't have this run of Super Bulls without dont`a hightower. I think I don't think belongs in the hall of fame but you could every all of the cases were making for. Eli You could just as easily make for like twenty other other random playwright quarterback a case you've made for you. I think is the case. Why he's a great memorable? NFL figure. It's just that's different than in. Our weather also talked about about it forever his position he was not a top ten quarterback. I would say for every year but two of his career. There's no one in the hall of fame you can say they've also said forever. You're in West. You've quoted Vince Lombardi on this that the quarterback it just the most important for a position or a position where the spotlight as and that comes with way. More pressure To it then dot high tower where his position is. I just think what you I was able to do in that spot in those two years is something you can't take away from. I and and say oh he was carried to titles. Because I don't I just don't see it that way. I think you've you stated the case very well. I think it falls shy of the hall of fame. I think if you're a jets fan like Dan or you're the browns fan and you've seen nothing but Ship wrecked chaos at the quarterback position. That the the idea that you would draft someone who would play as Eli did before a PR stunt got him benched you know. Couple of years twelve years of sixteen starts and by the way we are stunned. Got Him benched. He got himself well. That's fine but I'm saying but also the disrespect I just giants fan and you draft draft Philip rivers and he. He did what he did. But you get Eli Manning out of it and you know. He's going to win two super bowls in essentially a total ironman at the position. He's a hall of fame to a lot of giants fans I get. I don't think he belongs to the meeting. Early either reading a story just reading up on allies career. I completely forgot the whole two thousand seventeen.

Goodell: Manning leaves 'indelible imprint' on NFL
"We've been talking about you I manning is going to announce his retirement tomorrow from the New York giants a lot of debates going to be going on for the next five years or so where you I ranked does he hall of Famer Ballot and so on Roger Goodell just tweeted this a moment ago statement about your manning leaves an indelible imprint on the New York giants fans and the NFL his passion for the game intense preparation ability to rise to the occasion. Where the hallmarks of his career holds a special place in history? Not just for hoisting the Lombardi trophy and being named Super Bowl. MVP twice ice but for how he transcended the game with the way cared himself around teammates media and most importantly fans. That's one of the many reasons he was named. Walter Payton Man of the year on on the field and in the community he was a champion. He was also a true competitor and held himself to the highest standard in everything he did. We know he'll carry that same spirit with with him into the future. I got the same statement sent to me from the NFL network Assignment desk you missed one line at the end. Can I read it. The last line for Chris Brockman Rochman thinks. I'll never send out the same thing when Tom Brady retires. But just watch. That's what it says right here. It's amazing that he would include like the Commissioner of the NFL gladys spell. My the name right and I don't think he will do the same thing for absolutely absolutely the same thing for. He thinks Tom Brady lied about to do the same thing about. Tom Thinks he smashes phone. It's okay it's all right we can disagree on this. Why does Tom Brady always have to be brought the Lon manning and I just brought it up because that's what you brought up in the commercial break and I noticed that you were holding? You're you're you're holding your horses right there and I still want their. I didn't think you were going to God. They didn't. I thought that was an affair.

Trey little as twenty five years old told the story to the New York Post, and they realized as a couple that they were going to have a baby tiger. When it was all said and done.

And it wasn't so much the the way he played. It was the way he carried himself as a as a person off the field. We had great admiration for that. And we said all the names Casey sounded great. So we named him. Casey, my daughter is Peyton P E Y T O N that is a combination of Walter Payton and Payton manning kind of. Combined the two and shows the P E Y T O N spelling at a respect to those two. I was named after the former wide receiver Lance Allworth San Diego Chargers powder.

We've got two cats the dog nor the cats were named after any athletes, and I don't know that I'm I'm necessarily opening this up for a topic either. Although you never know how this goes over the next hour and twenty one I will I will hold that determination until later in the show reds lose tonight. Three one the final score. This is the Kelsey Chevrolet extra inning show on seven hundred wwl w we talked a lot about Mike Sorocca and how well he pitched that first inning in the first pitch at a game is a four hundred foot. Four hundred foot Homer over the reds into the birds bullpen off the bat of Ozzy Albee's. It was one nothing, but the red strike in the first and it looked like Mike Sorocca was on the ropes. Joey Votto reached in fact, he'd been on base. What five straight times last night, he singled then he walked that? He walked then he walked tonight in his first at bat. He walked five straight times on base Suarez then singled Winker than single drove in one to one and you're thinking, all right. Get to the kid early tonight. And yet he buckles down strikes out. We're going to check swing third strike strikes out Dietrich on a poor third strike swing and then gets burn her to ground out and that kind of set the tone for the rest of the game. They they had a little bit on the ropes in the third inning. But Dietrich struck out again to end that inning. They got the bases loaded heat some help getting the last out in the sixth inning. But in and around all that at twenty one year old goes five innings of six hit two run baseball one or I'm sorry. That was Tanner Roark line. Sorocca goes five and two thirds innings at five hit one run baseball picks up the win and the bullpen which walked anyone and everyone last night goes three and a third innings of no hits. And no runs, by the way. If you're monitoring down on the firm tonight in a rain shortened game at Louisville. Nixon's L goes one for three he doubles the ground rule. Double over the wall in center field. He scores. A run bats lost four to two in a game. That was called after five innings grab some more calls here. And go. Let's see let's do this in Lebanon.

"And certainly I think he's now fourth all time on the sacks list and just a tremendous player in a tremendous person. Of course, the NFL Walter Payton man of the year. Ultimately went to Chris long from the Philadelphia Eagles who if you know anything about Chris, you know, how selfless and kind. He is. This is a guy who multiple times has given up his entire salaries annual salary for the benefit of others this past year, he gave up his entire salary four pledged in for tomorrow that is his initiative that promotes educational equality for young people. That's just one aspect of what Chris does. He also has an initiative called water boys with Nate Boyer. The former green beret who was once had a Cup of coffee as a long snapper with the Seattle Seahawks and played wall. Into Mike Brown's office at the university of Texas and said coach, I'm gonna play for you. And then he went over to the sandbox fighting for our freedom and practiced in the desert how to snap a football. So that he could come back to the university of Texas and be along snapper and just a total stood did a huge eight nine minute feature on Nate a couple years ago before he became Nate Boyer. I did a big story on him for SC featured and have built a great friendship with him. Of course. He's also the guy who went capper Nick began the decision to kneel during the national anthem Nate stood beside cap and put his hand over his heart. So those two guys have taken a the great initiative to go insure the people who need fresh water can get some fresh water overseas. And so just Chris long is an inspiring person. And someone I admire more than I can articulate. And so we'd love to get him on here to to chat about that. We're going to try to have Nate. Boyer on some time as well to chat with those guys about what they do in while they do it and how they take their blessings and pay him forward. If anything impresses me today. It's that. So thanks so much von Miller for his time and insight and filling up my tank and reminded me that I have to be I have to take my blessings and make sure other people feel them because that's something that I think, you know, he said, you know, to whom much is given much expected, and that is unequivocal truth. Now, another thing that is on a quizzical truth in a unique transition is the fact that do not do not double dip in dip boat. Do not go for the ranch twice with your celery. Stick and do not grab in the Super Bowl media center. Foodline don't bear. But chicken wing and input. The thing back our buddy, Ben heart sock who is one of Travis his home because he played it the Ohio State University. And he posted a video. Travis walk us through this. So Ben's social following is not the most massive. But this small short video he posted did what what kind of traffic. Ben, Ben has less than five thousand followers on Twitter, and he was the Super Bowl last night. And he posted eleven second video of the the food spread was and right at the end, there's a hand that takes a chicken wing off the plate and puts it back in the little dish. Well, the wings, and wouldn't you know, people started seeing it. It's been viewed one point two million times. Wishes person's face was in it, though, because we need I think we need to know who this is because he obviously goes to other big events in media members who you can trust and who you can't trust. Well, we can bet we could do some forensic science on that we could take the hand we could stop the video blow up the hand we could get it for index. Scientists to look at the strike in the hand. And I'll bet we could determine exactly who it is. There's a few rules that you are kind of you understood as at a young age, and you don't double dip, and he don't use your hands. And you're doing this at the Super Bowl of all places. Like, this is your your house with your family..

"So one of the things we were gonna talk about and speedy hit this to talking about the the the truth can be found if you're willing to just kind of look at it. And it's hard to do that now with all the hyperbole and exaggerations and propaganda and everything out there. This hope Colin Kaepernick our argument now is attorney is slamming maroon five for the Super Bowl performance as a cop out. But I, but I have to tell all of you that thank the NFL is being mean to Colin Kaepernick solely because he started the kneeling campaign last year. The reason why that doesn't hold up and speedy was spot on when he said this marchant marshawn Lynch is not stood for national anthem. And I don't know when I don't even think he was. Outstanding long before cap got on all this. He didn't stand this year. Right. And and never have. And he was out on the field as a fondness for the man of the year award for Walter Payton to Walter Payton man of the year. So if marshawn Lynch is playing and doesn't stand for the national anthem and even was put into is one of the thirty two finalists for the Walter Payton man to the included him in their commercial the one hundred years. Here's the one that reaching for the. So the reason why Colin Kaepernick doesn't has have a job is it may be partially because he's a PR struggle. But people are willing to go through the PR struggle. If you're good enough to get the job done. The main reason Colin Kaepernick doesn't have a job is the NFL teams. Don't think he's good enough to have won. If they thought he was good enough at this at this stage of his career. He would have won because other players who haven't stood still are plate. And they still have gigs. So really, I gotta tell you. That's the end of that argument. Let's let's flip this around the other way. Let's look at it. One hundred ninety degrees. The other way. Tim tebow is not quarterbacking in the NFL one. Because is it because of the circus? It comes with him. The fact they don't have to deal with him being outspoken Christian. Or is it just he's not good enough to make the throws required in the NFL. I think it's the latter. And I'll tell you an example, I read it today. Matthew Slater who who plays for the patriots? Jackie Slater, son. Who his dad was awesome? I saw the things he was saying last year in the press conferences, they go to him in the press conference last year. And I didn't see that. I saw it in the story that was out this year. You know, what he says about the eagles? He starts talking about his brothers in Christ over there that are really bold about their faith on the eagles. And how proud he is of the way they use that. Instead that being an NFL isn't the biggest thing that's ever happened in his life. Shoot. It'd be for anyone you getting right with Jesus Christ is the biggest decision most important thing you'll ever do. And I call heads every time because Jesus prices the Lord of my life, and I'm what knowledge him by calling because that's what my dad always did. So if it was about being a devout Christian and talking about your faith in interviews that keeps Tim tebow out of the league. Then then Matthew Slater wouldn't be in the league. Matthew Slater starting because he's good enough to play it. Comedown the coaches in the front office. They actually evaluate players and decide who they can use in who the can't use. Now does some of them come with more baggage than others? Sure. That means you gotta be even better. But it comes on both sides of the spectrum. So it may it's possible. We we have to accept it is eight just a slot possibility that capper Nick is not good enough now to to quarterback any of these teams. Remember he was based when he was playing he could be a backup. Probably I'll give you that argument. These people that are doing this screaming boycott, not only his behalf are killing any chance. He ever has. Because this asinine is a backup. Well, that's not going to be good enough. They're gonna start the same boycott start screaming that I must start him at some point you do and he's not good enough to go with that. In the thing. I can say a little bit of that too. I know, but but he's also a superstar regardless as part of it. He's Tim tebow the trophy winner, and he's gonna draw tangible. Are you gonna play Tom are you gonna do this? And he's not good enough to overcome that. I think it's the same type of deal. But these people that are screaming boycott are killing any chance you'll ever have to be in the league is a backup is he's good enough to be a backup the NFL. Tim tebow may be too. But I'm just saying they're not good enough to overcome the hype becomes the point though, but it isn't solely because they're controversial controversy. Plus, you're not good at to be worth the controversy. They would they would put up with marshawn Lynch doesn't have a group. It cries wins marshawn going into the game and gets out there and get some social media. So so what you're talking about? When you go to Collin cabinet, you bring with him, his mom and to some degree if you go to Tim tebow. You bring him his. Yeah. And so people say, well, if I'm going to have to deal with the mob about when I'm on play him when I'm gonna put them in. They have to be so good that I play mini exact. And so if they're not then then the combination of them not quite being good enough to be worth the mob and the mob together makes them an undesirable choices in. Here's the thing too. It's not solely their their protests. Are the things I don't think the NFL owners collude on things like that. I just think they have a similar spirit in that. They wanna win and Ida Walker baggage. That's right. No doubt. So here, I'm dating all get together and huddled go less freeze out camp unless freeze out Tibo list. Say let's say let's say that. Let's let's say that let's say four years ago five years ago. After he's already got a fee ring, some says, well, you know, now we get Tom Brady. You know, he's not going to stand for the national anthem or we get Tom Brady. He's gonna talk about Jesus. All tom. There's gonna people trying to cover every practice and somebody that you think he's worth say, absolutely. Let's get let's get. Let's get that deal done. You may Tom Brady's gonna be our quarterback. They they have all the protests. They won't do because he's gonna play a game. It ain't gonna matter. So they're going to be happy. And then of course, you not opening we upset with the city meals and all that. But you know, once we put on him to the Super Bowl ring. We're going to get over that. What what do you think about you always want to know about Jesus every press conference? He wants to. But then when you go to players that they go they're going to be here in they're probably not gonna play and we're constantly. It'll be hounded about why they're not playing. Then you have cameras in their face with my backup. He's getting more attention than and then you go back. It's not worth it. No. And that's the problem. And that's the problem because if you think these people if you sign Colin Kaepernick is your backup right now. And you think these people are going to be quiet if he doesn't start at let your started have you are you are racist. Somehow, I don't know how is the top ten players in the league are all African American. But but you're a racist for not not signed. And then when you sign him because all he really is good enough to be a backup. And then you become a racist. Because you won't let him be the starter. He's only a backup. You can't win with you can't. And so the mob the mob as you said, Greg. They're hurting Colin Kaepernick more than their help. Oh, yeah. Because you're never gonna be happy. You know, when you when you meet out to the mob, and they eat it all starts screaming. That's still not enough. You're like, well, if I if I can satisfy your appetite, and we're just not going to be nice situation. Right. And these these top players are just like we say to women all time, you better be more pretty than you are. And if you're not gonna win football games big guaranteed starter. And you bring controversy. You're not worth it. Your phone calls, and how you saw the things that will respond to that to next Super Bowl recap at eight six six we be big or rickandbubba coming up next. Rick and Bubba, Rick and Bubba. Oh. Today. Business happens here fear and virtually anywhere because today innovative companies are reinventing the way business happens, and.

"walter payton" Discussed on Sports Media with Richard Deitsch
"I mean, just pointed out one thing, I see a lot more cameras. Do you feel? I mean is there because of the magnitude of the game, do you feel more pressure? Or is that helped by the fact that this is number five for you as opposed to number one. I think I always feel pressure to be honest with you. I mean, I try not to think about it. But it's the Super Bowl and a hundred million people are going to watch it. I feel pressure in the pre game because I normally don't do team introductions. I don't dorm cover the anthem the Walter Payton band of the year. Presentation happens for me once every three years and not that it's that difficult. But it it's just that these are new events for me that I don't really cover during the regular season. Once the game kicks off. Maybe you're nervous for the first kickoff and the first player to but after that it just goes into a regular football game. It's still eleven on eleven and that's where you can just rely on what you've done through the entire year. And that that's the part that I like I forget that a hundred million people are watching it and just try to cover my regular football game. Mike, one of the things that I I thought was really really fascinating wrote about this last week is Tony Romo who you work with every week said he praised you, and he said, you know, they'll times he'll be sort of saying something, and he'll be talking about particularly let's say like the coverage of safeties. And as he's talking you'll pan out just a little bit wider. So that the audience at home gets a sense of what Tony's talking about. And Tony said it makes a lot smarter. It makes him a come off far more intellectually sound to the audience, and as he said, he didn't do anything that was your decision to do that. Can you give some insight into how you work particularly with the analysts when the analysts is saying something and your goal is to sort of matched visuals to what the analyst is saying. Yeah. I think that's the most important part is that you're showing the pictures that the analyst is talking about I can have the greatest shot in the world. But if the analyst isn't isn't speaking about it, probably one of us is is off. So I try to listen to Tony. I think it starts in the meetings with the teams, and we're about to meet with the the patriots. And I listen to the questions that Tony's asking. He wanted to know last week how the what the chiefs plan was for gronkowski. And whether they're going to have a safety in the box or not, and I get the feel for whether Tony thinks the safety play is important of. So I would tell the cameraman at the meeting. Hey, make sure we're showing the safeties that there's only one single high safety or there are no safeties if they're in coverage zero I'm sure Tony's gonna wanna. A circle the middle of the field and say, hey, there's no safety here. You know, you might wanna take a shot on a on a seem route to gronkowski up the middle or something like that. So I get a lot of it through the pre-game meetings. And and what I think Tony thinks is important. And then it's religious listening to him during the game to make sure I'm supporting him with the with the pictures that he's talking about..

"Morning meeting on a Boston Herald radio. Week to go or more guess, obviously. But before the Super Bowl just a little bit over I'd say, and John Sabah Jedi. Is going to be bringing you plenty of coverage next week of all for all your Super Bowl needs. Absolutely. I want to let people know about that the extension the expansion in terms of coverage in time that you guys are going to be doing right. The rundown will then become Rhode to the ring be one to four Monday through Friday as opposed to one two three four Monday through Friday. And we'll also be on next Saturday and Sunday one to four myself jets, dry Christian Burgoyne, Tucker Boyden if he's available. I know he's going back to school at Harvard this week, but also John Sarah nita's will be in studio. A couple of days he really breaks down the Xs and os. And also our great staff that's going to be in Atlanta covering the game will be calling him with some daily updates. Karen gregan? Kevin Duffy, Tom, Keegan are great sports columnist and Steve Hewitt. So all four of those folks will be in Atlanta starting on Monday covering Super Bowl. Fifty three should be really exciting. I mean, it's the nighttime. Eighteen years if they're going, and when you gotta Forty-one-year-old quarterback and a sixty six year old head coach, you don't know if this is going to happen again. But we've been saying that for many years, and then it happens. So. Patriot fans just expect that their team's going to be playing in the Super Bowl, which is so different than when I grew up Hillary because the first God over thirty years ago, and I was like pinching myself for two weeks saying I can't believe the patriots win the Super Bowl. And at the end of the game. I was really pinching myself because they lost forty six to ten to the bears. And then the about a decade later. They lost the Packers. And since Brady and Belgium have been here. This is going to be Super Bowl trip number nine. It's it's just amazing someone like Tucker who's nineteen years old. This is all he's ever known the patriots going to the Super Bowl. It's like he just plans on it happening. At least. That's exactly what's happened. Yeah. I mean, I remember certainly refrigerator Perry. And I was really young which is why I only remember for Perry. I need someone that you would remember right today. He'd be like a big guy not an enormous guy back then he was just much bigger than Yeltsin. He was just very great athlete as well. And the weird thing about that game. When you talk about refrigerator Perry the bears. Just absolutely destroyed. The patriots the bears in eighty five that might have been the best team that we've ever seen from one single season. They only lost one regular season game and one of the regressive. Mike ditka. Had who was the head? Coach of the bears is that he never got the ball to Walter Payton for touchdown. Walter Payton, one of the greatest running backs in league history. There's an award named after him the Walter Payton award, which goes to the player that does the most charity work and all great work away from the field. Walter Payton was was not just one of the greatest players ever one of the greatest guys ever. And he died at only forty five years old with. Delivered disease and that was one of the regrets that Mike Ditka. Had that he'd never got Walter Payton the opportunity in that game to get a touchdown. In fact, when the game was over Walter Payton was quite upset. I mean, he was a player had been league ten years and finally had a great team around them. They won the Super Bowl. And it was kind of. I wouldn't say childish by Mike Ditka. But missing the point to give refrigerator Aryan opportunity to score a touchdown. But not arguably the greatest player in the sport at that. Right. Right. So that was something that that. That's how good the bears were that was the only like negative coming out of that game was what we didn't get Walter Payton a touchdown along the way to a forty six to ten award win. But it's a lot different now that the Super Bowl the patriots of Ben with braiding bell. Check of all been close games. Yeah. They absolutely have. They absolutely have in. And I mean, no one's going to forget the one where where they came back. That was insane though. I mean, it's twenty eight to three in the third quarter. The falcons were just doing whatever they wanted to do. I got to the point where like, okay, of course, I'm going to continue to watch. And I kind of like move to a different position. And next thing, you know, the comeback started. And I said, well, I'm not going to leave this position. Now, I sometimes get prestigious, and that's the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history. When the greatest comebacks in history sports for a single game last year Brady put up five hundred and five yards against the eagles. But the patriots lost because their defense was got awful against the eagles. And they didn't play one of their better Cornerbacks Malcolm Butler in that game. And that's something that kind of dominated the off season. Why didn't bell check play Malcolm Butler, Butler left? The patriots in free agency design with the titans and bell checks. Never answer that question. And quite frankly, Malcolm Butler is never answered that question. So hopefully, bell check doesn't lose mind. Next Sunday bench someone that could help them win. I don't think that's going to happen. But it's gonna be exciting because the Rams have really really good as well. Yeah. It's gonna be a fun build up to the game too. Because I mean just considering where where Tom Brady is in the overall. Specter of football is huge. Just you know, it was funny this morning out of nowhere. My husband says to me, it's really it's pretty crazy that the patriots are in the Super Bowl considering this the year that they've had which I just thought was considered a down eleven and five he was talking about the dolphins game. Right. The Miami miracle and then they lost the next week to Pittsburgh in the regular season. They were three and five on the road three of those five losses. They only score ten points. They they look pedestrian on the road this year. They're undefeated at home, and they took care of a chargers team in the division around at Gillette, a charges team that I think quite frankly is a better roster than the patriots. But the patriots have Tom Brady and Bill Belichick, and they got the job done against the chargers. And then go into Kansas City where they've struggled in the past to win that game in the fashion. They did, you know winning in overtime was just incredible. And now they're playing a high-powered Rams team that probably has a better roster than the patriots. But. Vegas is saying the patriots are gonna win the game. Patriots are tuna point favorite, quite frankly. The Rams don't have a fan base. They've been in was for a twenty year period. Move back to L A last year. Stan Kroenke whose owner is part of the WalMart fortune as building a beautiful new stadium in Hollywood, California to three billion dollar stadium that he's gonna share with the chargers, but they don't really have a great fan base in southern California. First and foremost is dodgers Lakers. And then if it's football at USC UCLA, the Rams may be the third most popular football team in LA, but they're going to the Super Bowl, and they're going to give the patriots quite a battle. I would suggest that the rest of America are the foot fan base at four. You bet the game you're going to root against the patriots. You're outside of New England because you despise them. The most hated franchise in sports and patriot fans sometimes it's so thin skinned. And can't understand why. And I'm like be happy with that. Because they know who you are on the Yankees don't have the Yankees are the biggest brand along with the Cowboys in all sports. But when you've been that successful and kind of that arrogant about it sure that's going to turn off a lot of people. But you know, what on Super Bowl Sunday? There's going to be a lot of is rooting against the New England Patriots. I remember growing up. They wouldn't even sell our home games. The patriots, you know, half the games weren't on TV and they had some ups and downs and really since two thousand and one it's been just this incredible run that quite frankly is almost unmatched in the history of football the Packers. You know, historically, the most successful franchise in the Steelers had a great run in the seventies and the forty Niners in the eighties nineties, but to do this now when this free agency to keep a team together is nearly impossible. And really the only connection here is the owner Robert Kraft, the head coach Bill bell Jack in a quarterback Tom Brady, it is just just unprecedented. What they've been able to pull off. Yeah. I mean there there really is so much to talk about. And I mean, of course, there's there's so many heartaches in terms of what this means for Brady what it means for the team. But I did want to ask you actually about something. You just said, which is that they are the most hated franchise in all of football. Do you think that they're more heated than for example? The Dallas Cowboys were. Yeah. More than the bears and more than any other team that had a sort of strong run. Yeah. The Cowboys would probably be the closest but the Cowboys are so polarizing because they've got an huge fan base. Not just in Texas, but nationally patriots don't necessarily have that fan base nationally. It's the six dates of New England. And I'm sure there's patriot fans in all of the forty four states who just may be growing up. Love Tom Brady, whatever it may be. I know that the only other state that's being considered rooting for the patriots in this game is because he played at the university of Michigan. But the Cowboys, you know, they were America's team, and they still are the brand huge for the Cowboys and still the most valuable franchise in North American sports. So while a lot of people rooted against the Cowboys in those Super Bowls a lot of people rooting for them with this Super Bowl. There's going to be a small group of people rooting for the patriots mostly in New England. And then a lot of people rooting against them because they just don't wanna see them when that six Super Bowl with by the way with the Steelers for the most in Super Bowl history. Yeah. It is. It is interesting that. The heat is so much larger part of it is obviously Bill bell. Check. And Tom Brady at Tom Brady is someone that I think people, quite frankly, you're jealous of at this point. I mean has it. All right. I mean, he's he's got the looks. He's got five Super Bowl rings. He's got the model wife. He's got a fortune of three four hundred million dollars. Bill bell. Check on the other hand is the most accomplished coach in the Super Bowl era. But he's very arrogant about it doesn't really answer questions, you know, during two thousand seven they were running up the score against teams on their way to a perfect season. Which ended unfortunately in the loss to the giants. But my take on that was, you know, the NFL stop them high school where unsportsmanlike to run up the score. It's the NFL put a stop to them. But they've also had other issues whether it be Deflategate spy gate, but that's what I was gonna say. Yes, the country have said they've cheated right and Arlen Specter was a Senator from Pennsylvania was a big eagles fan. You know wanted. The Senate to get involved in investigating Roger Goodell. Why the tapes were destroyed Azer spy gate, and what's that all about? And it's almost like now, there's a congressman in Louisiana congressman Richmond who wants to put the Commissioner of the NFL on the stand because he feels that the saints were wrong last Sunday. You know, sometimes politicians do this for political gain, obviously because their fan base will support them. But yeah, that's part of it. Spy gate, deflate gate. And even you go back to the first Super Bowl win over the Rams the allegations that the patriots recorded the Rams walk through the day before the Super Bowl, which gave them an edge. So there's that part people have always felt that they cheated. And maybe they just got caught other teams. Try to push the envelope to get an edge any way they can Jimmy Johnson. Who coached the Cowboys said every time a game was over. I would send someone up to the visitors coaches booth to see if anything was left behind game plan. So if you do it and you're out front about it in your face about it. It's gonna turn people off and it again bell. Check is kind of you know, he's Darth Vader. Right. I mean, he's just the the guy who is pure evil to the other thirty one franchises in football. He's got that scowl. He's got the hoodie. His press conferences, he just won't give an inch on anything..
"walter payton" Discussed on WGN Radio
"That matter on seven twenty WGN. Saturday afternoon in Chicago, and we'll be back with Walter Payton. So what we've got Walter cut up. Don't worry. You'll get to hear plenty of Walter today. The greatest running back ever, some some would tell you the greatest football player ever. This is the thirty third anniversary of the bears Super Bowl. Yeah. They played in another Super Bowl. But we don't really celebrate that one at all not worth it not worth two thousand seven at the two thousand six twelve years ago. So yes, that would be correct. You've studied for the show. I did. Yes. I'm Harry, Bob Kesslers here in case something breaks, whether it be a new story or just something in the boss's office. Another one in my toes, another one of your toes, and if an event that happens call him Snyder, and we're celebrating the bears Super Bowl anniversary at the car will be along shortly as he makes his way back from SOX fast. It was the first time in my life. The Chicago had won a championship, and we have been bad. I mean, we weren't like so close I could taste it the year before we were. But Chicago had not been really great at all in in really in any sport with the possible exception of as a teenager is the Blackhawks were phenomenal. When I was growing up. They got into the Stanley Cup final on seventy one. I remember mother's day game when the Canadians knocked them off at the old Chicago Stadium and the bulls the bulls played in one thousand nine hundred seventy five in the NBA finals against Golden State Warriors, Rick berry, and the warriors knocked off the balls that was a horrible time. But that was the closest we had gotten and for bears fans the year before the season ended in San Francisco when the forty Niners annihilated us. Instead he next time bring your offense. And I thought about it and said, well, if we have the greatest defense in the history of the sport, we don't ever really need to have an offense, but they had Walter Payton. So my friend, Steve nor Mark and Bill. I we got tickets. We got my car, and we drove down to New Orleans and Karm is going to the Super Bowl next week. And I'm just gonna make so much money him. It's an Atlanta. I cannot think of a worse place for the game to be in then Atlanta. And I went up to see it in Minnesota when it was there. And it was it wasn't great. But at least the whole city was into it Atlanta's like of spread out. I got to go there. We used to always travel Bob for Super Bowl week. We didn't get to go to the game every year, but we get we're always there the whole week and the Super Bowl cool, Atlanta's not a great spot the Super Bowl should always be or at least like every few years should be New Orleans. Otherwise, you need like a warm weather city you need Miami or San Diego or Los Angeles or Phoenix. You cannot put it in Atlanta. Because people want to you know, rock and roll out last year. Where was it is in Minneapolis, right? Last year was in minneap indoor stadium where it this. You're actually don't know in Atlanta. That Ben stadium and kinda warm, isn't it? It's not cold. I don't mean this as disrespectful, but what's what's exciting about Atlanta? Yeah. And you could tweet us too. You can text us rather. The text line is the same you go three one two nine eight one seventy two hundred. Here's a guy saying what about the staying in eighty one? You know, you're right. I stand corrected Lee Stearns great soccer team, the staying with Karlheinz Bruneta powder headache. Franz Matthew, they were champions in nineteen eighty one. So the the big news so far the only big news out of Atlanta. Bob is that the Atlanta Falcons announced that they will not be raising the prices for any of the concession stand. That's nice of them. Right. So to get a a hotdog the slice of pizza and a beer is still going to be ten bucks. But now the only difference is to wait in line at cost forty five dollars. Are you serious? What does the Super Bowl ticket has to cost many hundreds of dollars? Right. If not into the forefingers, right, right? But the Super Bowl tickets are actually very low this year. Really? Yes. Because of the Rams fan base because nobody knows any Rams fans. I mean there were St Louis Rams fans. There were Los Angeles Rams fans, you know, twenty five years ago, but LA is just come Rams have just come back to Los Angeles. So anyhow New Orleans is the place where you should always have the Super Bowl. It was so great there. When while I went with my friends that I went back four years later to see the forty Niners annihilate Denver. That score was fifty five to ten but the Super Bowl was incredible. The bears were in it, and Bob, I gotta tell you what here's my. Here's my memories that Super Bowl. Okay. It was nine bears fans for every patriot fan. You know, we live we live in a time. Now where the patriot fans are everywhere in the world as a whole nother a whole 'nother level, right, right? Right and back. Then it was, you know, bunch of Chicago wins like me that will. We're just so thrilled that we were in the championship game. We were in the Super Bowl. So the streets were lined with bears fans and the Super Bowl. Shuffle was playing everywhere. And like all the patriots fans could say I remember I remember one like one night about three in the morning bunch patriot fans, they all all the bars in New Orleans have these heat lamps. So it doesn't matter that it's not a warm weather city because in the French quarter, all these heat lamps. So you can walk around there in a bears jersey and never feel cold. All these fans the patriots like six of them were. Were chanting fem sick can't dance. That's all. They had on us. That's wrong. There were they weren't you know? Well, you know, some some ladies will tell you. He's the he's the greatest dancer, right? But the Super Bowl Sunday music video. He's a bit dare I say, you wouldn't not be a first round draft pick if you will fuller too, but he'd broken his foot. Yes, we have four what Steve fuller played for Jim McMahon of dad we hear a bears solo from the Super Bowl Chappel. Dan long is here. He cares about the shell car drop the needle on this. I can't say the needle he he's seen the needle and the damage done. We were celebrating the bears Super Bowl. We're going to start with Ronning Gary in just a sec if you want to jump in here and share your memories of the bears Super Bowl or just talk about how these guys have not paid for a meal since. Dan Hampton is on the station every Sunday, and I don't think Dan Hampton has paid for a meal in Chicago since the bears won the Super Bowl thirty three years ago today. I believe it. He's he's a charming guy, though, down a lot. Sure, how you not hooking like us. Right. Never met Walter Payton. I was probably too young. But his son is a nice guy Kerry. He is so fake. He is so shade your are casting. Yes. AM just to be clear JP is a wonderfully close friend and big fan of attrition has kids. It seems like he was raised by good people. You know what? I mean. The and one of those guys I mean, but Walter payments such a toast to the everyone loves. Yeah. He will. Well, Walter Payton was the greatest running back ever. And I remember a time when the bears didn't have a quarterback and Walter Payton was playing quarterback out of the shotgun. His record his passing record. I believe is the best of any running back based on at least ten throws. And he he would block he the greatest. Play in Walter Payton's career is that Thursday night game in Minnesota against the Vikings. When the bears were losing at halftime and McMahon wasn't supposed to play and he's on the sideline these begging. Dick, put me in put me in put me in. And he finally puts him in and the Vikings red dog. They've got this linebacker blitzing and Peyton comes in though. He disguised got like six inches them. Peyton just berries this guy with the block which allows McMahon that extra moment to throw the ball long downfield to Willie Gault three the first seven passes. Jim McMahon through that night were touchdowns and the bears were down twenty one nine and they came back and they buried the the Vikings. The hated Vikings on a Thursday night because of Walter Payton's block, I love JP. Here's a little sweetness from the Super Bowl shuffle. Will they call me.
"walter payton" Discussed on Boston Herald Radio
"Meeting on Boston Herald radio. Week to go or more guess, obviously. But before the Super Bowl just a little bit over I'd say and John savage jetty. Is going to be bringing you plenty of coverage next week of off for all your Super Bowl needs. Absolutely. I want to let people know about that the extension expansion in terms of coverage in time that you guys are going to be doing right. The rundown will then become Rhode to the ring. She'll be one to four Monday through Friday as opposed to one two three. So wonder four Monday through Friday, and we'll also be on next Saturday and Sunday one to four myself jet strike, Christian Burgoyne, Tucker Boyden, if he's available and who's going back to school at Harvard this week, but also John Sarah need us will be in studio. A couple of days he really breaks down the Xs and os. And also our great staff that's going to be in Atlanta covering the game will be calling him with some daily updates Karenga Regan. Kevin Duffy, Tom, Keegan aren't great sports columnist and Steve Hewitt. So all four of those folks will be in Atlanta starting on Monday covering Super Bowl. Fifty three should be really exciting. I mean, it's the nighttime in. Eighteen years at they're going, and you gotta Forty-one-year-old quarterback and a sixty six year old head coach, you don't know if this is going to happen again. But we've been saying that for many years, and then it happens. So. Patriot fans just expect that their team's going to be playing in the Super Bowl, which is so different than when I grew up Hillary because the first God over thirty years ago, and I was like pinching myself for two weeks saying I can't believe the patriots are in the Super Bowl. And at the end of the game. I was really pinching myself because they lost forty six to ten to the bears. And then the but a decade later they lost the Packers and since braiding belch Ben here, this is going to be Super Bowl trip number nine. It's it's just amazing someone like Tucker who's nineteen years old. This is all he's ever known the patriots going to the Super Bowl. It's like just plans on it happening. At least. That's exactly what's happened. Yeah. I mean, I remember certainly refrigerator Perry. And I was really young which is why I only remember frigerator Perry. You know what? I mean. That's someone that you would remember right today. He'd be like a big guy. Not an enormous guy backed any was just much bigger than anybody else. And he was just very great athlete as well. And the weird thing about that game. When you talk about refrigerator Perry the bears, just absolutely destroyed. The patriots the bears in eighty five that might have been the best team that we've ever seen from one single season. They only lost one regular season game and one of the regrets that Mike Ditka. Had who was the head? Coach of the bears is that he never got the ball to Walter Payton for a touchdown. Walter Payton, one of the greatest running backs in league history. There's an award named after him the Walter Payton award, which goes to the player that does the most charity work and all great work away from the field. Walter Payton was was not just one of the greatest players ever one of the greatest guys ever. And he died at only forty five years old with liver disease, and that was one of the regrets that Mike Ditka. Had that he never got Walter Payton the opportunity in that game to get a touchdown. In fact, when the game was over Walter Payton. Quite upset. I mean, he he was a player had been leaked ten years. And finally had a great team around him. They won the Super Bowl. And it was kind of. I wouldn't say childish by Mike Ditka. But missing the point to give refrigerator Perry opportunity to score a touchdown. But not arguably the greatest player in the sport at that. Right. Right. So that was something that that. That's how good the bears were that was the only negative coming out of that game was well, we didn't get Walter Payton a touchdown along the way to a forty six to ten award win. But it's a lot different. Now, the Super Bowl the patriots abandoned with braiding bell, check of been close games. Yeah. They absolutely have absolutely have in. And no one's going to forget the one where where they came back. That was insane. I mean, it's twenty eight to three in the third quarter. The falcons were just doing whatever they wanted to do. I got to the point where like, okay, of course, I'm going to continue to watch and I kind of like moved to a different position. And next thing, you know, the comeback started. And I said, well, I'm not gonna leave this position. Now, I sometimes get superstitious, and that's the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history. One of the greatest comebacks in the history of sports for a single game last year Brady put up five hundred and five yards against the eagles. But the patriots lost because their defense was got awful against the eagles. And they didn't play one of their better Cornerbacks Malcolm Butler in that game. And that's something that kind of dominated the off season. Why didn't bell check play Malcolm Butler, Butler left? The patriots and free agency designed with the titans and bell checks. Never answer that question. And quite frankly, Malcolm Butler has never answered that question. So hopefully, bell check doesn't lose his mind. Next Sunday bench someone that could help them win. I don't think that's going to happen. But it's gonna be exciting. Because the Rams of really really good as well. Yeah. It's going to be a fun build up to the game too. Because I mean just considering where where Tom Brady is in the overall. Specter of football is huge. Just you know, it was funny this morning out of nowhere. My husband says to me. It's really it's pretty crazy that the patriots are in the Super Bowl considering this year that they've had which I just thought was considered a down your they were eleven and five talking about the dolphins game. Right. The Miami miracle and then they lost the next week to Pittsburgh in the regular season. They were three and five on the road three of those five losses. They only score ten points. They they look pedestrian on the road this year. They're undefeated at home, and they took care of a chargers team in the division around at Gillette a tragedy team that I think quite frankly is a better roster than the patriots. But the patriots have Tom Brady and Bill Belichick, and they got the job done against the chargers. And then to go into Kansas City where they've struggled in the past to win that game in the fashion. They did winning in overtime was just incredible. And now they're playing a high-powered Rams team that probably has a better roster than the patriots. But Vegas is saying the patriots are going to win the game patriots are two and a half point favorite, quite frankly. The Rams don't have a fan base. They've been in San was for a twenty year period moved back to. L A last year. Stan Kroenke who's their owner is part of the WalMart fortune as building a beautiful new stadium in Hollywood, California to three billion dollars stadium that he's going to share with the chargers, but they don't really have a great fan base. I mean, southern California, first and foremost is dodgers Lakers. And then if it's football at USC UCLA, the Rams may be the third most popular football team in LA, but they're going to the Super Bowl, and they're going to give the patriots quite a battle. I would suggest that the rest of America are the foot fan base at four. She set the game you're gonna against the patriots. If you're outside of New England because you despise them. Yeah. The most hated franchise in sports and patriot fans sometimes are so thin skinned. And can't understand why. And I'm like be happy with that. Because they know who you are a man the Yankees don't have the Yankees are the biggest brand along with the Cowboys in all sports. But you know, when you've been that successful and kind of that arrogant about it sure that's going to turn off a lot of people. But you know, what Super Bowl Sunday there's going to be a lotta is rooting against the New England Patriots. You know? I remember growing up. They wouldn't even sell out home games. The patriots half the games weren't on TV, and they had some ups and downs and really since two thousand and one it's been just this incredible run that quite frankly, you know, is is almost unmatched in the history of football. The packers. You know, historically, the most successful franchise in the Steelers had a great run in the seventies and the forty Niners in the eighties and nineties, but to do this now when this free agency to keep a team together nearly impossible and really the only connection here is the owner Robert Kraft the head coach Bill bell, Jack and a quarterback Tom Brady. It is just just unprecedented. What they've been able to pull off. Yeah. I mean there there really is so much to talk about. And I mean, I, of course, there's there's so many hot takes in terms of what this means for Brady what it means for the team. But I did want to ask you actually about something. You just said, which is that they are the most hated franchise and all of football. Do you think that they're more heated than for example? The Dallas Cowboys were. Yeah. More than the bears and more than any other team that had a sort of strong run. Yeah. The Cowboys would probably be the closest but the Cowboys are so polarizing because they've got a huge fan base. Not just in Texas, but nationally patriots don't necessarily have that fan base nationally. It's the six dates of New England. And I'm sure there's patriot fans in all of the forty four states who just may be growing up. Love Tom Brady, whatever may be I know that the only other state that's being considered rooting for the patriots in this game is chicken because he played at the university of Michigan. But the Cowboys they were America's team, and they still are the brand is huge for the Cowboys and still the most valuable franchise and North American sports while a lot of people rooted against the Cowboys in those Super Bowls a lot of people rooting for them with this Super Bowl is going to be a small group of people rooting for the patriots mostly in New England. And then a lot of people rooting against them because they just don't wanna see them when that six Super Bowl with by the way with tie the Steelers for the most in Super Bowl history. Yeah. It is. It is interesting that. The hate is so much larger. I think part of it is obviously Bill bell. Check. And Tom Brady Tom Brady is someone that I think people quite frankly jealous of at this point. I mean has it. All right. I mean, he's got the looks. He's got five Super Bowl rings. He's got the model wife. He's got a fortune of three four hundred million dollars. Bill bell. Check on the other hand is the most accomplished coach in the Super Bowl era. But he's very arrogant about it doesn't really answer questions during two thousand seven they were running up the score against teams on their way to a perfect season. Which ended unfortunately in the loss to the giants. But might take on that was you know, the NFL stop them. It's not ice school where unsportsmanlike to run up the score. It's the NFL put a stop to them. But they've also had other issues whether it be Deflategate spy gate, but that's what I was going to mention. Yeah. The country have said they've cheated right and Arlen Specter was a Senator from Pennsylvania was a big eagles fan wanted the Senate to get involved in investigating Roger Goodell. Why the tapes were destroyed spy gate, and what's that all about? And it's almost like now, there's a congressman in Louisiana congressman Richmond who wants to put the Commissioner of the NFL on the stand because he feels that the saints were wrong last Sunday. You know, sometimes politicians do this for political gain, obviously because their fan base will support them. But yeah, that's part of it. Spy gate, deflate gate. And even you go back to the first Super Bowl win over the Rams the allegations that the patriots recorded the Rams walked through the day before the Super Bowl, which gave them an edge. So there's that part that people have always felt that they cheated. And maybe they just got caught other teams. Try to push the envelope to get an edge any way they can Jimmy Johnson. Who coached the Cowboys said every time a game was over. I would send someone up to the visitors coaches booth to see if anything was left behind game plan. So if you do it and you're out front about it in your face about it. It's gonna turn people off and it again bell. Check is is kind of Darth Vader. Right. I mean, he's just the the guy who is pure evil to the other thirty one franchises in football. He's got that scowl. He's got the hoodie. His press conferences, he just won't give an inch on anything..
