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. Ben mcadoo where's Ben these days but Jacksonville Jaguars Ben
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.

P. and T. sixty that just shows how he develops his relationship with sick kids the guy is as good of a guide you can find in the NFL these all these all the great things that go on in the NFL like a the prime example of that so you would think there's a nice moment frames got his gloves whatever some guy comes up to an aspen for gloves and go short for the charity I would actually do that because all you can sign for you to sign the gloves gives the gloves to this guy he doesn't recognize his media members not someone covered the team every single week button given the gloves next thing you know he's alerted that these gloves are on eBay so dissed sleaze ball jerk face loser goes in there takes the gloves from one of the best guys in the NFL all eyes to his face about them going to a charity and then put them up on eBay well maybe get more money on eBay for the auction for the charity now now it's not only John he pocketed that mon all right it is there's no doubt about who would definitely say that this guy is on the hamster wheel of **** fall yeah without a doubt without question he might be the wheel itself yeah so I I really there's a good end of the story some Vikings fan in New Jersey bought the gloves and said that he's now going to buy something with all St find out who this guy is that sold a lot

Patriots' top tight end facing four-game suspension after coming out of retirement
"We want to get caught up on obviously a big NFL story from over the course of the weekend. New England Patriots tight end Benjamin Watson is facing a four-game suspension for failed tests in March of the NFL's substance policy. Now, we hear that a lot, Mike and you hear four-game suspension and immediately most football fans roll their eyes and say, oh, my God. How did you do that? Why did you do that Benjamin Watson situation is a little different yet? Benoit's Watson situation is different a because most people when you hear about this happening, it generally tends to be guys that are trying to stick around in a roster guys that are sort of on the bubble. Ben Robertson's a Walter Payton man of the year guy nominee consistently. He's been one of the faces of. The NFL as far as character guys. So it might seem a little shocking at first Ben Watson took to his Facebook page and made a post explaining kind of what happened. Remember he retired this offseason he said, quote, after my contract expired last March. I told my doctors I was finished playing I went through a series of medical tests, and was prescribed bio identical to Stockton Sipe Nate to assist in healing. My body and mind on March twenty ninth nine days after I started therapy, I was randomly tested under our substance policies. I complied on a habit. Never thinking in a moment. I'd wanna come back in late April some clubs expressed interest in playing and after much deliberation prayer I decided, I wanted to return considering myself previously retired I'd forgotten all about my test in March until I got a letter on may third saying my result results were positive, I was devastated for obvious reasons, did not want to proceed at that point. I knew my decision to return to play with include a four game suspension, and I immediately discussed this new development with the club's. I'm excited thankful to return to New England but very. Disappointed. I will not be able to play. And contribute immediately went on to say. This is not how he wanted to come back into a locker room but basically saying I was prescribed this. When I thought I was done playing I decided to come back and play. Now, this became an issue, all of it makes sense. I mean, that that is a reasonable explanation. You know, he's talked about, like when you're a little kid, and you're mom, says, don't give me an excuse. Like reasons excuses. Sometimes it's a very gray area. This feels like a very reasonable explanation. The end of the day, does the league care should the league care. I don't know about that. That's the tough part of me. It's a great explanation. I don't know that it changes any of the action. He can obviously appeal it. I don't know that to the NFL that they can go down the slippery slope of trying to explain that we're trying to let that explanation change of punishment and they won't Benz not gonna push him on it, which the other part of this. He said, I respect the regulations that have been collectively bargain to promote fairness on the field of play and accept the discipline associated with infraction. So he's not going to appeal is now whether the wood. Do that on his behalf just because that's what the PA does you appeal all of these things to try and guard against anything going forward, but he's not going to appeal that. And honestly, if anyone other than Ben Watson, I would have questions about this. Like a guy that retires and gets test and takes it with no intention of coming back, and then forgets about a month later when he decided to come back like most situations. I would say you're too smart to kind of understand that, but Ben Watson is so overwhelmingly, regarded as a man of such high character and is always, so consistently been that, that if anyone is going to get the benefit of the doubt for me. It's probably going to be Ben to that point benefit of the doubt or lack, thereof is something that's earned based on past action. And that's there has to be some equity for the way that you've sort of spent your career and the person you've been, especially even to your point with his with his closing comment that he's not going to challenge. I mean, that's just sort of even more puts a puts a feather in the cap of look, I understand why this is happening. This is what I did. This is how. Happens now it does create a little bit of a situation for the patriots at position. That was also all ready presumed to be thin because of the loss of rob gronkowski. Now, nobody going to say the Benoit's him is going to replace rob gronkowski. We understand that we all expect a different look to the patriots offense, this fall to try and make up for that production somewhere in kill Harry, somebody that we've heard a lot about big body. And rob naked talked about him last week on the show, there's been several conversations about he's going to get a lot of looks to sort of replace. Some of that production, though, does create a little bit of a lack of a solid piece that you can rely on that. You know what you're gonna get out for the first four weeks of the season. It's perfect for a guy that heading into his fifteenth NFL season who's thirty eight years old. He's now going to get the first four weeks of the season to chill like he's going to get the first four weeks of the season on the show. The patriots are going to be a playoff team. They're going to figure out what to do in a post gronkowski world. That's just you talking about. Of the doubt. That's the benefit of the doubt that we give them. So now he gets four games on the shelf to come back later in the season. We're we still haven't ruled out the idea that rob gronkowski might be someone they call upon if there's another postseason run in store for the patriots. So in my mind in this situation, because also any sort of PD infraction is not anything NFL fans who care about, we've demonstrated that time and time again, it serves suspension, get back out in the field start playing more football for us. But this is the perfect blueprint of how to deal with it and get behind you transparency about the process, accepting the penalty, and not really going and making this some sort of lengthy appeals, and then worrying about getting back on the field and being the man, we all know Ben Watson to be, it's the perfect blueprint for anyone to follow. Who's in the

"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.

A little more insight into what these individuals were able to do as they pay through. So those are the kind of conversation that we're going to have as the month flourishes and goes on with that you're going to get involved and talk about what's going on. And we're going to say good morning to Dennis and mount laurel the morning sunny. Good morning. How are you today? Wonderful before I get to my Super Bowl point. I I want to congratulate you on that award. You got a week or so ago the Ed Snider humanitarian award from the sports writers of the greater Philadelphia reach you up there on the podium. You were dapperly-dressed that usual. Well, you were at the event now I saw some tape. Okay. Good. And then I also want to congratulate Chris long you'll man. Yes, sir. Last night. He won the Walter Payton, Nancy your ward what a great honor and he fits within the category. What we're talking about? People can make a difference. And you have to think about long from his family. Howie that is a root of what his family is all about. And it tells you kind of environment he grew up in that would make him take the positions that he has. And the do the things that he's done in terms of making a difference in the society, we live in not only in America but outside America. So I wanted to start off the conversation graduating both of you. Thank you. Number two. I watched the first Super Bowl game in the sporting. They said there's fifty different, you know, protecting agencies FBI fifty different back in the first Super Bowl that probably wasn't fifty cops in the Coliseum. You go back that far. I was my neighbor invited over to watch Super Bowl the colored TV 'cause we had a black and white. All right. And I was the Coliseum and then was sixty seven and sixty eight Oakland and sixty nine you know, the jets and you article. So your point is that there was such a lack of interest. There was there was no interest. You could walk up to the game by a ticket. Yes. And tickets were not expensive. Couple couple things for your listening audience. And I always bring some different points of view one was the first telecast of this World Series game. You know? I know this. I had a TV set in my neighborhood. The only ones you in nineteen forty eight. I saw the championship game at twenty three twenty seven off sixteenth street with some of my guys Houston Lewis who still alive junior Lewis. And also Melvin Robinson who lived through three doors from me. And I remember I would come from school. Get home as quick as I could. So I could watch the World Series between the Cleveland Indians. And the Boston Braves the first telecast was forty seven forty seven. It was the Yankees and the dodgers. Okay. And in nineteen fifty only nine percent of households. TV? Do you believe that? Yeah. I can believe that. In the last thing I want to bring up, but let me go back to what you're saying. Because you taught history for those were young and don't understand it. People. Don't understand this. Most people didn't have a radio. Back in the day. Now, I was born in one thousand nine thirty six hours fifty one. So when the Brown bomber fort who is America's hero the Brown bomber Joe Lewis when he fought. People who didn't have radios. People would put radios in the window the window, the other neighbors could hear so neighbors could hear like this. This this bad weather. We just had people will be standing out net kind of weather. To listen to the Brown bomber Joe Louis fight. I remember listening to somebody else's ridicule actually. Listen, I wanted to give you my last point is, you know, one of the shows this week WBZ brought up to twelve greatest players are the modern era. Well, here's my twelve from my my youth, and I'll go through it in a minute. And it was fifty sixty seventy Wilk Chamberlain. Jim Brown Willie Mays, Bobby ORR. Johnny United Bill Russell Gordie Howe sandy Koufax Pistol, Pete because he change how basketball was played in college in the pros Kareem Abdul Jabbar, Ted Williams, and they can't just comment unity, Kansas, comet was sayers. Twelve he's got a pretty big twelve. That's a very good twelve. Most people don't. Gale sayers played seven years and was youngest inducted into the pro football hall of fame. And she did what back then was unheard of keeping running back. He could punt returns kick off. He did everything while football players as I said earlier Dennis playbook. They had to do multiple things. You didn't have as many players on your roster. You didn't have the specialists as we have in the modern game. Not only it specialists in football. But you have an in baseball. You haven't in in other sports as well. So you had to do all of the things that needed to be done and gale sayers on the offensive side building play defense now on the offensive side. He did all of that, unfortunately, because of his running style you got injured and when he got injured it Kerr tail what could have been one of the most fabulous football careers, and one of the most fabulous athletic careers. That America's ever seen. He was that great at what he did. I just didn't want to go on numbers because I wanted to go on greatness and yell. Shares was great. Well, he he would be one of those individuals. You said you you don't wanna turn away from you? Don't wanna miss the moment because you never know when the moment is going to be. So he was he was that good in terms of what was going and don't forget we didn't have the hype that we have today. So when you talk about those individuals that you have on your list, you're talking about less hype. That was not a lot of hype around any of those individuals who were the early guys yet. As great as Ted Williams was and the critics and the and the greatness of what he did. And the accolades that he received this think of Ted Williams were playing in the modern era of baseball. And he was able to do what he was able to do how many more accurate would he have received not only that he missed six years of his problem. We talked about that last week that meant that. He missed a minimum of one hundred and eighty home runs in the five hundred twenty one I would say more than two hundred because they were his prime years. Yes. Yes. He was the splendid. He wasn't well liked by a lot of sports writers and fans because of his antics, but wasn't this antics? It was the fact that he wouldn't cowtail to them. Now, he went he felt that you know, he was a man of of statue. And he expected to be treated from that point of view, and in the sports writers, and at that time had a lot more power. And that's one of the reasons that when he was selected to go into the hall of fame. He didn't get one hundred percent of the vote because of the fact that they held that against him Babe Ruth didn't get a hundred percent east. Nobody got one hundred percent of what Mario did recently. We did a show in that two weeks ago. Dennis. Thank you for the conversation. Thank you..

Of course, we'll start at quarterback for the Niners. His seventh straight start since making his NFL debut in a big win over the. The raiders and Cal Shanahan finally made it clear that he's not gonna play CJ Beathard anymore. This season. The team is going to be fully under the direction of quarterback. Nick Mullins deserves to be an ex players played very good. And he's gotten better as he's gone died. Yesterday was probably next best game. And especially the way finished it in that fourth quarter and not all complete a lot of balls. But just him getting rid of the ball on some really tough protection situations and being able to get that one Dante at the end, which was very tough to get off. The pass to Dante Pettis about thirty yards to keep that winning drive alive. Shanahan with more on Mullins. He's done too. Good of a job and loving a C J more playing time, but Knicks earned it, and I'm not taking them out. And hopefully, Nick Mullins will be the fulltime backup to a healthy Jimmy Garoppolo next season.

I go back obviously, a lot of years before my first game and even had to wait a year because I was on my first year side the entire first year is an IRA was on IRA for the whole season break my ankle and training camp. So had to wait a whole 'nother year to actually get out on the field and the to have one of the first game against the bears and tackle Walter Payton. Yeah, yeah. Luckily, reverse tackle was. Luckily, my first sackable luckily up the middle. It was an upper middle play tackle them. And you know when you're on the field. You don't you don't think I just tackle Walter Payton. It's just a number two years. Someone you tackle the afterward. You realize wow as Walter Payton. But a little later in the game I had an outside. There was an odd type play play nose tackle. But I I made it to the outside, and it was kind of me and him, and I was on the ground and he was running down the field. So it worked a lot better when I could tackle a member of the tackles. And there a lot less room to move. And this is obviously the end of his, you know, his career. But boy, oh boy. It was interesting now, it's funny. You say that because our our former colleague here Merril Hodge was a running back, obviously at Idaho state and went on to play and have a great career at the Pittsburgh Steelers. One of his first preseason games was against the bears. He waited until after the game was over and ran across the field to shake Walter Payton's hand, Mike and just told them. Hey, you're the reason I play baba bottle, blah, and he actually got an autograph from Walter and all that kind of stuff. And he he thought it was a great thing in the world and some of his Steeler teammates and said do. Yeah. I didn't go that far. Sure to shake his hand after the game. But I didn't go all fan. Boy. But I was like I like to tell the story. You know, the story always gets better afterward that I tackle him and I stood up. And I said, you ain't so bad. I got you got nothing older sweetness, no sourness experience. I we've got a lot to get to week got hall of fame guests coming up in just a little bit.
