I'd love to see some pool noodles at like at like TPC SAWGRASS. It'd be layers. A John Deere classic comes back with something stupid like listen. I Have Long said and we talked about.

I don't know that Torah can really play golf tour. Where like the whole is just this this deep into light right like when they do the PVC pipe here? Like that's how deep it is so I actually. I was just thinking as much golf as I've played which is a lot. I can't think of one instance where like the PVC pipe. Cost the ball to not go in Now the PGA Tour Pros are much more act rights and somebody could like slam dunk one. From with an iron shot it'll broach. That would just bounce thirty feet in the air over the green that otherwise would have gone down into the hole and stuff like that.

Make everyone not get the virus. It's supposed to like stop the her like just by being everyone locked in. It's not like everyone's not gonna get it. It's about hospitalizations hospitalizations. Stopping the curve to the point. That like when you do get sick. Because they're expecting you to get right that you're GONNA be able to go to the hospital on a ventilator and get it done but like so at some point like we're just going to be released back into the world and like we're going to get sick you're going to get it right. Like like their plan is for you to just be able to go to the hospital if you need them to be able to handle it. That's pretty much it because they're saying this fucking things coming back with vengeance and they said there could be worse it will be worse to fucking W. H. whatever that Shit said the wwe.

You would think about this. I got a package here at my apartment so I gotta go down and get it. I saw someone in the hallway and I like I like jump like I got scared like that. We got to we. We're talking about basic human interaction that we have been told that we cannot do so. When I saw one person I was like fuck. Like that's fucked up. You haven't seen anybody a longtime awhile. You'll have a team Trenton. The longtime yeah extreme. Oh you don't worry about it man dude. It's GonNa be that feeling again where you lake when we are on the office. It's almost like we see someone from TV and you see him in person. We're all GONNA look a little bit different. We're going to be like shorter than you remember or like you know what I mean. 'cause WE'RE HAVING EACH OTHER MONTHS? I don't know like when I saw a Dave Portnoy. If the first time I was like oh he looks just like different than when I watched him for.

"Good Morning. Everyone it's time and you Chrissy. Confessions how are you doing today? Julie I am doing okay. I mean folks. I mean I don't know whether to talk about the tornado. Victims here in Tennessee are do I talk about corona that's infested and infected the world. I mean I'm just thinking what do we talk about other than corona? I mean. I've never seen anything like it asked my parents. They've never seen anything like it. I've asked my mother-in-law she's never seen anything like it. I mean who would have thought that the most powerful country on the face of the earth would shut until it's people they have to stay in their homes now folks. I advocate staying in your home. I mean let me be very clear and that cough that you hear Julia's an allergy. By the way and yes we went and both got tested. Because I am a hypochondriac between me and Jay Demarcus we keep our doctor on call. Twenty four seven. It's so scary and I mean it's and it listen it finally got chasing Savannah's attention. It has made them nervous. And 'cause when you shut down a country that tells you how serious things are. It is very very serious at this point. I mean folks I went to Cosco. Does that tell you how serious this thing was? Yeah right assets and this was at the onset. This was at the very beginning. Everything was really shut. Dan Yes you did go to twice you went to Cosco and because I was afraid that what if we ran out of something or whatever so I didn't want Julie exposed to anything so I thought okay as usual todd will take the bullet and I went to Cosco and I have to tell you. I love a cost guide. I do I love Cosco. I mean you can go in by like all this stuff in bulk. I mean you could find no that now okay now have only been going for twenty years but that's okay right but I mean you know I. I didn't know how to do it but I did it on my own. If you'll remember you had to send me a copy of our card right but but I guess my thing is is that. I hope that everyone is staying in. I hope that you're staying away from those people who are most susceptible which are the elderly and people with A compromised immune system Because I mean I'm reading stories every day of younger people who are literally fighting for their lives. Well there's one in California that that a under the age of eighteen that passed away yesterday. There's this young man in New Jersey. That's twenty something years old a picture of health that's now being transferred to was it paying hospital. Therein Pins Pennsylvania something for this new new treatment and so folks it's hitting everyone. I mean everyone. I'm going to take my mother food today. But I'm putting it on her front porch and then calling and telling her to come out and get it because I'm practicing truly social social distancing. I mean if I'd done that many years ago I'd had less trouble than one I've had but I mean it's it's to the point now too where you have to be doing what the doctors and the experts are saying to do what I found and you always give a shout out to anything that comes from South Carolina. 'cause it's where you are from. Did you hear Lindsey Graham yesterday when he was on the news where he said that if they did not pass this bill for nothing? It's two trillion dollars as the stimulus that he was going to go to the House on the floor and he was going to demand that the that the country stop paying everyone in the Senate and in the House and in the Congress to shut off their benefits and their pay until they could do their job. It's time to come to get time to together and you don't get to sit here at a time of crisis start negotiating for something that you couldn't get pushed through to begin with. But when I was laying in the bed listening to him I was like way to go. Lindsay is so true because it is an I do believe this is the Good Lord. That is saying okay. I put pebbles in your path and you refuse to look at it so now. I'M GONNA put a boulder in your match right. You guys are GonNa have to work together. Put Your differences differences aside and let's kit this country running again and we don't have to be a Democrat or Republican. A A socialist libertarian to have compassion for our fellow man. It's right I mean. Politics should have no play in compassion right and just taking care of each other exactly and so you know it's been a this whole thing has been very eye opening to the point that you know when you look at where we are and how people are responding to things and what have you. I mean it's it's it's overwhelming it really is. I mean I was listening to the mayor of New York talking and he was calling out the federal government shocking shocking that we would be doing that but he was calling out the federal government and saying that okay mayor. The governor the governor. I'm sorry Governor Governor Cuomo and he was calling the federal government out and saying okay but where are these ventilators right? Where are these what he was saying was? Why can't we put the supplies where they are needed? Most exactly because his state has more cases than any any state in the United States and I completely agree with him. You know we have it. Why things sitting surplus when we get people needing it. It's crazy exactly and so you know it really is when I look at you know I was in the grocery store because I yes folks I went to a Publix and this little old lady was in there and she was looking for hot dog buns and I had. I had you know two packs of hot dog buns in my buggy. And because that's what Juliette told me to get and they didn't have any more hot dog buns. I don't even eat hotdogs. People and I don't even care if how does our home Julia's the one who is determined. I guess she thinks that by eating a hotdog. It makes you more American. I've hated hotdog. My whole life and chloe likes them and again hurt her to have a hot dog once a month so. I had but you told me to get two bags to have overly so I gave this lady a thing of this hot dog binds and she said Oh honey. You're young. You probably have children. She says I can do without folks this little. Old Lady said she could do without. She was willing to sacrifice thinking that I had young children and that I needed a more than she. Well I didn't and I gave them to her. So you know it's those kind of things that there is still people out here that have compassion for their fellow human being yep and we need to continue more of that and we do need to continue more of that and I feel like that we in my family for the most part are very compassionate. People that we do have kind compassionate hearts but even I want us to be better absolutely we all can improve in
From Brady to Carr, ranking Bears' quarterback options in NFL free agency, draft
"Free agency. Starting soon as we mentioned earlier in the show March eighteenth four. Pm teams can actually out signings the signings and the wide receiver classes fascinating Jj. Because I think mostly because it sort of matches up with the draft class. This is a loaded wide receiver draft class studs and studs and studs. Nobody that's like necessary. I I like I tend to think see lamb and Jerry. Judy can be. I don't want to call them like Julio Jones. Aj Green types. Because that I think does a disservice to really any young player coming to the League to to compare them too borderline hall. Julio definitely the hall of fame. Aj Borderline Hall of fame to compare them to that type of player. But there's a great group of guys who look like they can be viable starters in the NFL out of the gate however they will have to compete with teams who resigned teams will have to decide. Do they want to ask somebody like that or do they want to size like? Aj Green should he make free agency? let's go through your top five wide receivers. Who's at number five number? Five number five. I have Randall COBB. Yes sorry I remember number five. I Have Randall. Cobb. Randall COBB. Of course coming off that season with the cowboys really difficult to see how they're going to be able to pay him And so as I was going through this and I thought to myself well thought. Where could he ended up? In fact I didn't think that's about self depot. Ask me where he could end up. I would have to tell you on your and some wanted to tell you that. I'm looking at an Indianapolis Colts a team. That was really struggling to throw the ball down the field last year. Now lot of that adds do of course which cover said. I understand that but I've never really been impressed with the wide receiving group that the colts have of course. They thought that they were going to have a few more options That did not work out with Devon punches. Who dealt with injury for most of the season. So Randall COBB. He's GONNA turn thirty before next season. He's at nine. Nfl seasons he had a eight hundred plus yards last year. I like him. What the colts and whoever their quarterback could be yes so it's interesting the question is would you rather have a guy like rental car bounced back nicely. Who Fits with the perfect slot style of of the modern? Nfl You've got three wide receiver sets etc etc. You can win outside and in some cases might be too old that now he's going to be thirty before the season starts or would you rather dabble in the shod. Perrin and sweepstakes and I might be inclined to agree with you. I like the PERSAD. Payment freaks me out like what? You're really like this Guy Ozzie. Newsome couldn't get this guy right and you're telling me that now like Jameis. Winston fixed him. I don't know if I'm buying it entirely woods. I would run away from shop Perriman. eighty might be fantastic human being but in terms of on the field play. I think that it was a flash in the pan how he sort of came on there in November and December for the bucks Certainly James with the five thousand passing yards sort of inflated his six hundred forty five receiving yards Paran- I just had issues for most of his career and I'm not willing to take a few weeks from last season. He's turned the corner. I kind of tend to agree with you. I wouldn't be opposed to like a one year not too pricey deal with precise payment but I would not want to make some big splash on that guy Given what's out there. It is interesting to this class offers. A lot of slot options like Geronimo. Alison is their Nelson Aguilar. Philip door set You can uh Devin funchess. Maybe didn't make the cut for. Jj surprise there. He's more of a tight end. Not a slot guy But then also demarcus Robinson who was very effective in Kansas City system. I think there's a lot of speed slack is out there so if I were if I were General Manager would probably at the top of the market. Do their own thing. Because I don't want to overpay for top of the market I would then sign a slack. If I got a young quarterback here I would sign a guy for agency at a lower cost and then go out and get by number one in theory in the in the draft. So that's probably why those guys didn't make the top five and I would tend to agree with you. Who's your number four on this list number four Robbie Anderson Levin love and coming off that season with the New York jets My best fit for him is the New York jets Because Gosh they really if they lose him. I don't know what they're gonNA do at the receiver position. They absolutely have to upgrade even by keeping him. They need to upgrade to upgrade that offensive line as well but seven hundred seventy nine receiving yards last season. He'll be twenty seven this upcoming year if enough teams and and if the jets WANNA mess around with this Joe. Douglas wants to mess around with us. He has been In conversations with with Robbie Anderson's representation if some teens get involved here and this is taken care of at the very started illegal tampering window or before. The price could go up on Robbie Anderson because of his age because of his speed because of what he did last season and then you can start approaching. Fourteen fifteen million dollars per year. I think the jets absolutely have to knock this out early and if they mess this up in some way if they decide not to bring him back. I'm looking at a place that he could go to looking at the Philadelphia Eagles who obviously could always use a upgrade. Their I the interesting seeing there may be some overlap there but the eagles need help it wide receiver. But I hope probably Anderson's faculty jets. I kinda liked that idea and I do think. There's a little bit of like say the Shaw Jackson to his game. That's an insult to the Sean Jackson as fast as to Sean Jackson Robbie interesting could be more of a position. He's he's more of a like he's a bigger body type of guy but who also possesses that deep speed. That might be complementary for the other pieces that eagles have so. I don't hate that idea. If I don't know how Roseman takes a deep dive a free. Hd but he's got cast a bird so maybe it happens a May I ask your number three is and then I started to say Emmanuel Sanders is your third wideout. He is my third wide out. And it's really just because age. He's GONNA turn thirty three. Where do I have him? The obviously he's not going to be in San Francisco. I initially till depot the Carolina Panthers and I said the Carolina Panthers because I'm not entirely sure the panthers are convinced. Honesty Smith is not convinced that they have a number one wide receiver they have DJ more. They have Curtis Sam. You hope that. Dj More is going to be that but what they seem to be lacking. Is that fantastic veteran presence in there and after I spent a lot of time will in the month of January with the San Francisco. Forty niners covering their postseason games. What I learned from a depot Samuel from kindred born was just how much manual sanders mentor. Those guys those young group of players coming up and how they were able to really improve their game early in their career after the trade for manual. Sanderson San Francisco did so I look at a team like the Carolina Panthers and I say. Oh those young guys could really benefit from a guy like Emmanuel Sanders however Emmanuel Sanders is kind of like Andrei Dala in in that like he elite should and probably only wants to play for a championship. Contender right. He's been with. The broncos just went to another super bowl and so we're talking about contenders we're talking about teams that need wide receivers. The New England Patriots is. They are trying to retain Tom Brady. That would be fantastic. Get sound radio. Robert Kraft and Bill Belichick said. Hey We got you Emmanuel Sanders and we got you this two or three year contract to finally finish your career in New England. What you say Tommy. Now that's great call. I think if you're the Patriots and this was the delicate line that they have to sort of walk with Tom Brady is. Can you go out into the mark like once we get to that noon at noon? It it's eleven fifty. Nine fifty nine on Monday can the Patriots manage in the span of about Let's see twelve thirty six hours. Thirty brought to us as a forty eight hours. Fifty two hours is probably right in fifty two hours. Can they manage to tamper their way into landing? Somebody like Mandal Sanders. Somebody like Hunter Henry and successfully like a- convinced Tom Brady to return if that's what they ultimately want their plan to be and if it is. I think that could be you know like. That's that's certainly a blueprint to having Tom. Brady back in New England. But I think you're going to have to get guys. Just beef up the receiving core for him if you want him to come back in my opinion all right the last two guys in this list that they're going to be the same for everybody. You could flip them if you want to Depending on your opinion of home and away splits for one guy in age for the other guy number two guy. Aj greed number. One Guy. Maury Cooper I beast I mean these are the first of all. There's a chance either. Guide makes it the free agency or Cooper could get transitioned franchise tag the transition tag depending on the CBA depending on what happens attack. Prescott's contract AJ Green. It does sound like the bengals franchise tag him but he throws a fit and says he's going to refuse to play for him then. Maybe that doesn't happen. What led you to stack these guys in this particular way. Jj Yes so I have AJ green at number two. Only because of agent injury concerns that He has missed something. Like twenty four the past twenty five games that the bengals have played due to injury So that is my issue with him. Amari Cooper last. We saw him was not getting the ball thrown as much his way as should have certainly against the Philadelphia Eagles. I felt that he still has it. Obviously he's young much younger than Aj. Green who I believe is turning thirty two this year. Amari Cooper is currently twenty five. He will be twenty six before the start of the season so If a Jake Reed were healthy he would be my number one with a bullet. No doubt about it on about his health and then So in terms of fits right We believe that. Aj agrees with the bengals eight. We'll extend the franchise tag if they do not then. I think that we can reignite the does job want to go to Cincinnati rumors and so just for the sake of argument. I through the raiders in there as a landing spot for A. J. Green. But of course I'm not putting too much effort into A. J. Green out to one of the thirty one other teams. He's going to Cincinnati. As far as Mark Cooper. I had no idea how the San Francisco Forty niners would do it in terms of contract and money but I have cooper going to the forty niners if he does not end up with the cowboys but again. They're the cowboys to do. Everything they can. To Keep Amari Cooper traded a first round pick for. It made a lot of sense. Not Not immediately when they made the trade form right.

"In the pod Brandon. Krieg the founder and CEO of Stash Brandon. I did this podcast over the phone right after money. Twenty twenty and it's just a super interesting story for anyone that doesn't know stashes building that consumer finance company of the future all at Brandon. Describe what it is. But let's get into the interview brandon. Welcome to the PODCAST. Thanks thanks for talking with me today. I'm really happy to be here. Yeah you're in New York. I'm an la just before we hit record and we were talking about the weather which city is better but outside outside of that. I'd love to hear about your background. You from the East Coast like how'd you How did you get your start? Yeah I'm a born in New York and I grew up in New York and a night spent a number of years in Florida and then came back to New York in nineteen ninety eight and got involved in an electronic trading business. I have never looked back since so New York is a is my home. I've now been accurate for cash. Almost twenty years I love I love my time in New York. It's awesome so electronic training. That was your that. Was Your first job out of school or was there something else. Yeah I I when I got to school I WANNA I. I wanted to be a chef. I didn't know what I wanted to do. Or confused might just didn't know and I ended up moving to New York and found a couple of guys that were starting up a electronic trading business that was gonna be a consumer side of it and they asked me to join them and I ended up staying there. The company's called industry. I started there in nineteen ninety eight and I stayed there through An amazing amazing Entrepreneurs where we grew the business. We sold the business to a firm called nine capital and I stayed there for another six so I think it was eight. Eight and six was almost like the fifth call fifteen years at the same place that I loved every day of it and it was really to. We basically worked really hard to innovate A business where we provided a real time trading tools to professional investors. It was much different than what I'm doing now l. but it was. I feel like it was a good foundation for me to learn about the capital markets. Also be the force of change in Markets through electronic trading. So it was it was a it was a fun fun period and I feel like part of my life led me to what I'm doing now right so I I guess I'd like to hear you explain the product a little little bit more. It's like a kind of a high end E. Trade for for stockbroker for traders. That are more sophisticated. Yeah so straits business. This was around taking markets that that had a couple of issues one There was a lot of information leakage market. So you know this at the beginning was was when most of the orders redone over the telephone. And so if you gave your orders were broker and you gave your true intentions. You wanted to buy or sell a lot of stock. Unfortunately originally some of that information would leak out to the market. As the person executing the trade would start Start Trading and people would quickly figure out the true intentions actions of the order and then the market move really quickly you love. The other problem with demarcus was that there was a lot of fragmented liquidity. So this is without a time when it wasn't just the Nasdaq. In The New York Stock Exchange there were electronic networks have stock trading popping up in. There was nothing really out there to connect them all together other and so we created a smart router that looked at all of different places. You can trade all the prices on liquids and started making decisions on where to route that order and that's really the business that was in which was to put the customer's order and take the customer's order in trying to do the best job. We could an execution order on behalf of the customer. We did it as agents which means we have A. We didn't take any interest outside of our commission so our job is to get the best price and control the impact of the order on the market so it was basically about creating efficiency. For professional investors. This Hedge Funds Endowments Pensions Mutual Funds. And it's funny talking about it now. I haven't spoken about this so long. Like fumbling a little bit. It's kind of funny bash now for almost five years tonight really. Haven't thought too much about that but but it was on funding. What's what's really interesting? Now is a look back at all the work we did you. Oh at Ed Straight at night. It's Kinda really commoditised now. It a lot of that work we originally did isn't really special anymore. It's mainstream when I was starting it. It was really about combining tack and Financial Services. Like the chew I in Tech. I guess you'd say although we didn't have a fancy buzzword at the time and and And now it's just mainstream accepted. It's normal but when I started. It wasn't the norm. People thought we were crazy right so it was is is really cool. That is that is very cool so the last question here on the on the very beginning of your career is. You're doing something that people think are crazy. You said like you want to be a chef. So how did how did you get to this. Where would you try to be a chef de? I don't actually don't like cooking very much. I'm going to go. Do you know try and trading raining like where did this. Where does this opportunity come from? And then how did you evaluate like you were just like young. I don't addressing. Let's let's go do it. I mean look I mean for me I like the inherent risk and manage. Risk is something that I enjoy. I loved cooking my family's in the restaurant business. I decided. It just wasn't right for me because I didn't like the hours and the pay was pretty terrible and I wanted to do more of my life and technology was always closest to my art and so when I came to New York I was looking for something like marry tacking also kind of work close to Wall Street because I always watched all the Wall Street movies and those really cool never really understood that much. I just think it was right. Place right time together with these two amazing guys that I spent a lot of time with them. I'm still really close. A master all twenty two years and so it was really about the. The opportunity was right for me to to dive into something that I thought was really interesting. I had no idea where this journey would take. I think frankly you know I I still saved my first. He's dubs from when I started with It was a very very low amounts of but I like the business. I like the direction of the company. I like the market. Were taking on because you could see how inherently flawed God the market was at the time that company started and the risk was a no-brainer. And at the same time. I got what I wanted. which was to work can check on Wall Street which is really cool and not a big thing back out no none Brennan? That is super cool You said you were you were there for what like nine or ten years and then the company the company sold and like what was what was that process like like going through through an acquisition. That was really cool. I actually it was. Yeah I was there for nine. Years before was sold in the acquisition was amazing night was very thoughtful about helping us maintain the the culture and the mission nations of the event trade There and I loved it. It challenged me in all kinds of new ways because it was a much larger company with close to two thousand employees. I think we sold entreat him. It's like it was like eighty. I think remember anymore like eight people and we were you know we were a very it closed team and when we went over tonight they allowed us to be a close team went until prosperous Organization that was doing a a lot of things that they were a very big participant in the markets but not as big in the agency electronic trading side so it was a natural fit is where I saw acquisition really work and make sense and I loved it i. I stayed much longer than by deal signed for two years. I was there for five and a half and I did that because as I loved it and I love the people culture and But like anything. Sometimes it was time to go and I ended up leaving after five years and so have a ton of friends Aaron. I think it's a great group of people there that that do that. Not For me anymore but I have a new love affair which is consumer Mer financial services. Right it was a it was a good opportunity to not only to see this little baby that I helped start grow and grow up but also for me professionally to see what it was like to work at a much. Larger company
What The NBA’s New Salary Cap Projection Means For 2020 Free Agency
"It gets closed the trade deadline headline then you have GM sweating and Al and the GM's that really need to make a trade for whatever reasons. Those of the deals that may slip under the radar that may be the difference between a team really producing. NTN`Er team really not producing a right next to the trade deadline. Those the ones I I really wanna see because those the ones that are executed in haste there not couple cited some those have a tendency to be more one sided than any other traits that we see so. I'm looking forward to that a whole week. Well this whole week when it concerns the NBA trade deadline A lot of things going on right now with the rumors and all the stuff. That's out there. One thing I do want to tell fans out there before we head on out is that the I know. There's a lot of things that are being set out there from these experts from these journalists from these podcasts that you're listening to out there as far as NBA hardcore fans are concerned. One of the things you're hearing is bird rights pertaining bird rights. Oh this guy doesn't have a big rides. Oh the the team will get his bird rights. I WANNA make sure everybody understands. What are bird rights at Burger is basically it stands from? Yes Larry Bird dealing with the contract situation. -Tuation the Boston Celtics longtime ago. Basically it's something that's now done on. The collective bargaining agreement and also with the players and owners has been formally set up bird bird rights according to go ahead with sports lingo dot com user exact termination. Here's someone to quote them. Bird rights is a term used to describe a tactic an NBA free free agency or trading or trading where a team is allowed to exceed the salary cap at the maximum salary in order to sign one of their own players. That's something that a Lotta people need understand what it concerns the lingo. That's going on right now because you're going to hear a lot about those two words bird rights you know if they trade a player and the the team can still retain the bird rights or if they can't because if they can't that makes a lot of difference especially those tax strap teams those those that are over or close to the tax if they cannot retain these players if they don't have their bird rights so that's something very important key to listen to down the road over the next next few days whether team is going to trade for a player that they can keep their bird rise because it it helps these teams for the long term if they want to go ahead and resign nineties players with Saudi. I JUST WANNA go ahead give heads up because I hear all this bird writes this bird rights at at nobis explaining really what bird rights are player has asked to stay with the team for three years in order to earn his bird rights in bird. Ruts don't do anything. Help team avoid luxury taxes. But what they they do. is they allow an exemption so that they can basically pay the guy whatever they want they allow them to go over the CAP. It doesn't prevent them from making taxes. They can go over the cap even go into a luxury tax situation. But it still doesn't prevent them from pain a luxury tax. So t Michael Akers. For example the Lakers signed demarcus cousins to a one year deal if they signed him to a two year deal next year next summer then he would be a three year contract contract and at the end of that contract they would have his bird rights they could then sign him to whatever amount they want regardless of where they how over the CAP. The cap gap doesn't even matter to them it would put them into luxury tax of the gave him a big contract and they still have to pay the luxury tax but they would be able to go ahead and sign him. No matter are
Super Bowl Player Predictions
"All right Kramer kick things off. What is your first? I Chiefs Related Super Bowl profit. Well we started by talking about We started super bowl week by talking. About how one of the angles is this chiefs rushing attack I the niners rushing defense. which is the weakness of this team? They are San Francisco's defense thirteenth and adjusted line yards on the D. Line in eleventh and DVR against the run. This team has not gone under this total of eight and a half eighteen rushing yards. They've only got under that once in the last. Ten Games I it seems almost too obvious that they'll they'll be attacking hacking this angle so it gives me a little pause but like I said they've gone over this total nine out of ten. It's not a bad matchup. People will point out all with San Francisco's got a great defense. They got a good defense. They don't have a great defense against the run so there will be opportunity. Andy Andy. Reid is one of the greatest coaches in the again. One of the greatest offensive minds not to win a superbowl for sure not to win the Super Bowl but he he he gets running backs ax to produce no matter what they look like. So eight and a half yard seem silly. They've gone well north of two hundred in both games. This does seem really low. Oh I couldn't be jumped right off the screen emmy as a former tight end as a A former are you referencing as a former China and I also worked with a hall of Fame First Ballot Rob Gronkowski which Danny worked on the show as well we got a witness not know how to Pronounce Chore Four In Person. George sure calling worse. Instead of Chore Sports He Kept Calling at George Sports all right rob just one more time. He's like coming up George now the wartime I think it's the sports and then finally the Co host is like you don't know what a chore is like Washing Dishes Sweeping floors and he goes. I never did any jurors ores growing up. I was too busy scoring touchdowns to smile. This big GROG again channel. He thinks he's GRONK. He thinks he's King of the BRAS. There's only one continue the bras. And it is Travis Kelsey. I'm taking Kelsey to have more receiving yards than than kindle over. You're still you're still avenging. Take a loss in the albro category. I was bullshit that he didn't get in. And I think kindles little overrated and I liked the minus one and a half yards Kelsey Chelsea against Kendall that's risky bro. Kelsey is an a seasoned bro now older Keel. Those two young. He's only as a young and up and coming Bro. I I think he's again. This is just I had the early take. I kill sucks at home instead of adjusting to the optics or the reality. I'm GonNa just lean in. I'm going all in on trump. So you know. Sometimes you're presented with evidence and you just have to ignore it. I'm locked in. I'm okay I was GONNA see. Danny I know you gave me your props one. You liked Nicole Hardman. I just love McCall Hardman in this game we he. He caught a pass in the chargers. Game to really start the ball. This was the week. Seventeen chargers game caught a pass to get the ball. Rolling with our offense later had a sweep. Like they're we're GONNA use them. They've been waiting to use him for something if he's maybe it's a sammy. Watkins Pass. I would say if you're gonNA scheme something like that up the other end of it is going GonNa be somebody like Nicole Hardman McColl Hartman. Scores a touchdown in this game was three hundred over at my book. Make some money this guy. They've been sitting on what he can do all season. They've been waiting for him to get better at whatever the hell it is route running. You know timing. Whatever it is that he needed to do? He's doing it. He's more trust in the offense. I think more so than demarcus Robinson I think he scores a D.. In this game let me ask you Sean. Do you take over twenty three and a half yards over one and a half catch or over fifteen and a a half yards for longest catch. Well I guess I'll jump to my second one because it's literally one of those. How when I wrote it down McColl Hardman's that's total over? mybookie was twenty three and a half up to twenty six or twenty. Six ounce. Sounds like it's down to twenty three and a half. Do whatever it is. I like it over. This kid is a burner. Oh I think he can get it in one catch again speed kills and I think they're gonna be focusing on Hill. He's along I don't think is going to have a huge game now. Maybe breaks it off. Maybe he does but I think Sal is going in there with that mindset of. We're not letting tyreek Hill beat us in this game so I I'm throwing a little a little tiny tyreek hill and beat and didn't mention the field. That's always trying to move past that I feel like don't you. You want to protect yourself against that one catch for twenty one yards and just take longest reception over fifteen and a half. Oh see well that was total yards. But you're right I yeah what do you want to do. So you're saying I feel you'd be gets a catch. It's going to be like a twenty yarder. Always does he get the second catch to get over catch props over the total total yardage lab take longest or first reception is twelve and a half yards now. Hopefully they don't go to a screen or something to him. It's Y- yeah. Is it a reception as it. Total yards what we talking about my twenty three and a half was total receiving received but Kramer is making a case here and a good case. That maybe you're better off off just playing the over. I catch or global catch. He's only expected to have one and a half. So maybe two and they're saying twenty-three which means they're expecting directing two catches of twelve yard. That's an interesting way to all right so you talked me into all right. GimMe Gimme. I'll switch it up. I'll give I'll go over. I catch twelve and a half yards. Now no actually. I'll stick with my total because I want to. If he doesn't get it on the I catch then I have some live bets. Already have have too much stuff going to see what we're having here is. We're having the synapses firing in my going on right. Now we're in the car with with Johnny and Johnny's Janis driving and we just had a discussion that he was going to have with his buddies later. Now he doesn't have to have that conversation tech. We've sorted it out. He's not gonNA play. I cash over twelve and a half hour. We're going to move forward. What's your second point of the discussion? Sammy Watkins over three and a half catches this is I ah I I know I'm chasing a little bit. But I do like the angle that they are gonNA shut tyreek Hill down. I like the angle that they're going to try to shut Travis Kelsey down and and I'm probably going to attack props around everyone else A Hill and Kelsey are going to be the chalk your plays for the yardage rich props be more people will probably play those overs. So I'm GONNA attack is like Sammy. Watkins and I think he is the guy that is going to benefit the most. Because he's the guy that seems to be running more their possession stuff and as they stretch the field vertically Sean they call that taking the top off the deep and that leaves a lot of room in the middle for a guy like Samya walk in so I really like him to get three and a half catches. I mean you you got to figure how many throws is Patrick Mahomes GonNa have. I can't imagine he's having less than forty throws which means I can't imagine having less than like thirty two thirty two catches and then if you take the attempts so over or even the pass yards over with homes what is actually looked at it. Plays out in both scenarios. Where either they're throwing the ball a lot and winning or if they do get down there behind hind they're playing catch up? It makes sense for either a Kansas City win or unfortunately San Francisco win the over and and then passing the ball. It does kind of make sense. We haven't talked a ton about the running backs Darwin Thompson. What is he involved in this game I think so I mean the over are underway? What one and a half Kerry Russia rushing attempts? I mean there's lesean McCoy is persona non grata. Now he's he had some fumble issues he. He's he's actually quick and I have liked watching him break off a few

"We have a very special guest. We've been yeah. We're gonna pat the show on the back a little bit two weeks ago. Tony romo joined the show last week. Mike pereira joined the show this week today. Demarcus ware joins the show. That's right before we get to demarcus ware. I do want to kind of just toss this question when it comes to tonight's game thursday thursday night football. It's actually not thursday night football. Be careful with that. That's a brand that's when n._f._l. Networks package begins. This is actually sunday night. Football aw on a thursday it's michael chris collins michelle to foia you get the whole the whole idea but this week by the way the actual game new england patriots unveiling unveiling their banner against the pittsburgh steelers but this is an interesting game obviously because football's back we missed the game etc. But who do you want to win a as a cowboys fan. Who do you want to win the green bay packers are the chicago bears because you can make a lot of arguments number one dudes way too orleans week one. What are you doing about this. I mean i'm i'm just considering everything that could be facing the couch down the road and when you look at it i think i believe born the packers i think i do i think i believe the packers are more likely playoff team simply because they have a better quarterback and i. I know that the bears have a really interesting rochester. They have a great defensive the reigning coach of the year matinee but i just look i mean i'm not going to bet against against aaron rodgers and look they have lower rookie head coach and there's a lot to that but until we see again that the packers cannot be counted on or believes then i'm going to believe in aaron rodgers and the green bay packers. I do believe that aaron could be in a little bit of a mood. I think that we're going to get pissed off aaron rodgers. He's he's gone a long time without <music> out being at the center of a season and so i think aaron rodgers is out for blood in two thousand nineteen so that being said i think for me if you're a cowboys fan watching in this game it makes the most sense to root for the chicago bears because i think the packers were more likely threat to cowboys obviously the four. That's the the cowboys play. Both these teams <hes> they host your packers on october six. They visit the chicago bears thursday after thanksgiving that will be on thursday night football but then again you can go from from the perspective of okay well. I think the packers more likely to win the division which means that the bears would be the team contending wildcard so then shouldn't we root for the packers occurs because we want to keep the bears out of the players look. I just don't want to deal with the packers. I don't want to deal with the packers and maybe that's the question that we should answer. Which team do you feel. The the cowboys could ultimately beat and for me. I feel more confident. The cowboys could beat the bears then. I feel that they could beat the packers. That's just kind of where we're at. <hes> i think <hes> <hes> you know hey get the packers stunned. Just just do it. Mitchell trubisky step up. Get it done bro. We believe in you the n._f._l.'s back and that's great and you know who else is back kazuki. Oh elliott that's right. Oh yeah the n._f._l.'s raining rushing champion return to the dallas cowboys on wednesday after finalizing six year ninety million dollar contract extension that gives him fifty million dollars guaranteed.

See the thing is i have opportunity to hartman and let me say this is put this thing. Maybe i don't know why the big apple out have an opportunity to partner with snickers in you know what up don't really reward award the player for being the hungriest fans also right. We're getting them involved in saying that. We're going to be able to performance wise you know give this bling bling chain here to the player that performance abyss but i think what really makes it different is charity part that goes with it. You know not not just on the field stuff but the off the field stuff as well and we want. The fans are really get involved. I go to you know all of the snickers handles right and help nominate these players but then at the end of the year how ever much value of this chain is is going to go to their charity and this was awesome about it because it's so we're around is not just about performances about off. The field accolades see my daughter sydney sitting at home right now saying esau through the superman superman. That's right exactly snickers. Is everyone else so. It's kind of interesting that you guys came up with this idea because university of miami's been doing chain thing down there on this island all the stuff and this is just a way to highlight great plays get players excited and all that other stuff. I had a former teammate of mine. He was drafted number. One fifth overall pick in the first round in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight in an rickey dixon was his name played at the university of oklahoma one of my favorite one of my favorite teamates dealing with some physical issues now and i just wish him always wish them the best and everything so he comes to me and he said because i i was the only t new and he said booms. I want to get a an m._c. Hammer chain the right. He wanted a big rig right right right right. That was the nickname ricky right so he goes to a local cincinnati jewelry store they they basically quote him thirty five thousand dollars in nineteen eighty expensive so i took them to a friend of mine who did exactly exactly what he need needed and wanted for only thirty five hundred bars but this thing is worth sixty thousand dollars. That's a lot that's a lot of black man. In this chain travel august the travels to whatever player gets that chain get the see what they're gonna do with it every single week which is going to be great but this is is the first time all right so i i well yeah i i. Here's why hope gets it. I hope that odell beckham junior gets at one with. I hope that donald we gotta give it very definitely going to get it. You know he's the best player in football <hes>. I hope that just trying to think i be given zeke because because he's hungry all the time. He's always sure you'll get him. Cam newton cam in a post game press conference be awesome awesome awesome god i'm just trying to. I'm trying to think of baker would get hungry player. Basically baker mayfield. Tom brady wearing something like this without outta town. I would imagine yes tom. Brady antonio brown tapes. That's the jerry golf has has again because his contract is so big that he he can afford it but you can give it to his girlfriend. Yeah flashiest guy that you played with lashes. Here's guy. I play with <hes> you know. The thing is i is larry. Allen really the thing is the quietest guy but the most close flashes got to have jewelry all my god he had a chain actually his bracelet was probably as big as that because how big larry allen was blade and it had forty two one carat diamonds wrapped around his wrist.
"demarcus" Discussed on Boomer & Gio
"She's absolutely incredible. Good morning markus good morning good morning fellow man. You look like you still play. Luc can be deceiving you walk in here man and now you've lost some weight and your chiseled in. I know you left because she had a bad back right right the couple years too early but i was just telling marcus. I remember we were at the a._f._c. Championship egypt game with c._b._s. When you guys beat the brady and the patriots get the super bowl fifty and then be cam newton those two games the super bowl and in the a._f._c. championship game you and von miller virtually unstoppable when i was staying on sideline watching you guys get after brady how many how many hits did you guys get on brady that day eighty now. I think there was a most in n._f._l. History i think it was thirty. Two you had quarterback thirty two quarterback. Here's combined between mammon and they say the quarterbacks. Don't get hit anymore and the rules are such where you guys probably are somewhat frustrated but that day they let you hit them. The thing is is that time it's the playoffs you gotta let guys get out there and play you can't be throwing a lot of flags because they wanna see the the excitement of the game and may involve and especially with brady brady. He doesn't go down and they still almost is one that game and then throwing a ball. You know they lost the game lateness season that cost them homefield advantage. That's where they ended up not being able to get back to get another super bowl and then in super bowl fifty obviously you guys were all over cam newton and that was another you know i want to tell us what it was like to get peyton back that year <hes> even though peyton manning wasn't the peyton manning that he had been prior to getting hurt but what was it like to have him back on the field for you guys as a leader thing when you talk about the sheriff in this what they call him he was able to manipulate the game mentally and not be physically there and we all know that payton didn't play his best game but he didn't lose lose decay right. He threw the ball. He didn't turn the ball over and he knew that our defense was the number one defense in the n._f._l. We can get him short field. We can score points. Do you would've won. The game had brock osweiler. Could you have made ahead brock osweiler stage. You're starting quarterback. I don't think so because i think that you know in the playoffs. We needed that momentum him builder in once payton <unk> came in the game. We needed that okay. I'll starters bang. It was at team karate. You know how when you go to o._t._a.'s training ninety camp. Everybody's pumped because they know who's playing. I was telling you use your you lose your offense of captain and now you get them back later on in the season and it's like okay now. Our boosted the biggest personality of exactly what we're g._o. With demarcus ware here on behalf of sneakers. We have to get your reaction. You spend most of your career at the cowboys still dole live in dallas to the big zeki elliott contract. Hold out is over. He's back at practice days. All the drama has subsided for a little bit now the attention to go to the debt contract but what do you think of that news this morning you know i think that's the best news that the cowboys could have heard for just a team in general especially going into these big n._f._c. east games. You got got you know washington. You got the giants the first game you gotta be able to run the football that is a run the football conference and with <hes> zeke zeke bamberg. There's takes a lot of pressure off of day. You know he can play like he needs to play and <hes> they can win some football game. How about their defense. How about the cowboys with the you know with lawrence right hand vansh right <hes>. You have miles jack..
Who is more important to the Dallas Cowboys: Ezekiel Elliott or DeMarcus Lawrence?
"Would you say is more important to the success of the dallas cowboys ezekiel elliott demarcus lawrence simple question well. I would say this is zeke elliott but for reasons that aren't as apparent. He had seventy seven catches ashes. He's a factor in their passing and we we agree. Zeke light is more valuable to the dallas cowboys and demarcus lawrence marcus lawrence pete over twenty million dollars. A year out of context is everything zeke. Elliott has two more years on his contract. He has no place to go. They could franchise him after that so that is a big look. He's really important but where else this is he gonna go. He has two years remaining. That's what makes it hard and it's not just the two years remaining the to franchise tag after that third franchise tag if they wanted so you could make the argument that dallas controls zeke's rights for five more seasons and get ice about until he decides through the collateral damage and all of this is the play the teammate you sitting there you you know nancy. We had the preseason bahamas. You're now. Everybody's focus week. One game plan in for the giants here. We're planning for the giants. We're getting ready for a divisional opponent and our best player has named reported. You know how much of a down of that is going into the the season will all everyone has all this optimism because everyone's owino right every it's a clean slate for everyone. You had a data zeke elliott. There hasn't ed's reporting and damian from a player's perspective. Here's the other thing anybody could get zeke elliott signed. That's the easy part. The context is dot prescott amari cooper byron aaron jones and starring see so you want your teammate in there but in the back of your mind as veteran. You're like wait a second. How much of the pies left for me so you have to really artful in terms of saying well. I got to be able to get jailing smith signing because he can't leave the marcus lawrence of good pass rusher but i gotta leave enough money for these other players because the starting quarterback he can't go anywhere. He may not happy elite but they've won. A lot of games with the sky is one. We'll say mike and i'm sorry but this is the dallas cowboys for for building team around zeke elliot. You look out of the dallas. Cowboys are constructed. They are like one of the few teams that their bill ronald running back. Okay so dallas cowboys put themselves in this position right now and now they're paying the piper because zeke elliott zeke elliott has perform and then maybe the top running back in the national football. He sees what the future is running running back position and he's sitting there saying i'm not i need it. I need to withhold services right now if i don't do it right now. I'm never going to get paid like like the other top running back. You're the best argument you can make for zeke elliott. They were fifth in the n._f._l. Last year and time of possession translate look at their defense. They were top five defense because they were never on the field. There were twenty two point scored but zeke elliott kept the their defense off the field bottom line. What's the eleventh-hour in this. I think that once you get to next week next week we get past monday or so monday or tuesday not complete the opener which again juries now bracing for an expecting and i think the problem with this situation with melvin gordon the longer it goes on the more things are said the more issues pop up we already heard jerry jones one say zeke coup which basically insulted zeke as agent so these things going. You never expected last year. After a couple of weeks. Steelers offensive lineman would be critical levian bell and they were and that inflamed the situation association and led to hurt feelings and eventually led to levy on bell sitting out the year so once you get this far into the game and they're so many sides with so much at stake everything is very personal sensitive and it's very risk but there there's a big distinguishment here. Fear does the work of reason. Maybe i'm bell was a free agent. J._v. soundcloud can be free agent. Zeke elliott's going anywhere at some point. He has to be reasonable because if he wants to play football is going to be all you with that but what i would say to you there is this in the next time zeke elliott steps on the football field he has he's not gonna be out there until he gets new contract when it gets a new contract what's the guarantees on that you tell me why would he stepped foot on fulfill. Find me take who am i sell it. I'm not stepping foot on a football field until i have my thirty forty whatever the number raising guaranteed millions of dollars and i'm not risking myself getting an a._c._l. Injury were some kind of career threatening injury. That would damage value. You keep your three point eight million dollars dollars this year. You keep defines. They come with that. We'll see how it goes if i'm sitting out the season and not playing and there are questions every day season to sabotage and if i'm jerry jones is stephen stephen jones. I'm betting on my offense align. I'm betting on good quarterback. I'm getting on the return of jason witten and every game i win. I'm more voted in my position and that's how why this whole thing is gonna implant and i've been in that situation. I'm like boy. We hold up without the role rears omnitel his agent we can but that's what kept me up at night and that's really where the cowboys are can only pollard pass protect. I promise you the first time that he gives up a sack. That's gonna put more money in zeke. Elliott's pocket and that's why i said at the beginning zeke elliott is right. The dallas cowboys right. Both sides are right now. The question is figuring out a solution that works for everybody that helps them save their season and help zeke. They don't either talk about it again on monday today to announce they are inactive ninety minutes before kick-off. I'm saying the eleventh hours like ninety one minutes as long as as long as he can get sign on that day on sunday before kick-off saturday four o'clock right he'd have to be in a roster exempt. It's a great point susan because they could get roster exemption so maybe they could sign him. He could work out for a couple of days but it'd be saturday and then as you're limit though
Arrest warrant issued for Lakers center DeMarcus Cousins
"Lakers player demarcus cousins is now a wanted man but not for his basketball skills lease in mobile Alabama and put out an arrest warrant for the Lakers center on a misdemeanor domestic violence charge after audio of a man reportedly cousins was posted by TMZ coming from the mother of cousin seven year old son cousins wanted his son to come to his wedding the mother said no cousins then threatened to shoot her in the head with a gun cousins could be picked up on a routine traffic stop but it's not expected police are going to

Is Dwight Howard Really a Viable Option for the Lakers at Center?
"Dwight howard is still on everybody's radar about maybe coming here to l. a. to replace demarcus cousins here's brian windhorst talking about how likely dwight's return to l. a. might be. I don't think it's a very likely marriage. I think the lakers right now are doing their due diligence on players unavailable centers joke him noah's another guy they've looked got and there's a process because dwight howard is a member of the memphis grizzlies he can't have free agent discussions with the other team so there has to be processed even have a conversation so that definitely taken place but dwight howard has been on four different teams in the last four years does not count the brooklyn nets who cut him and it may not glue the memphis grizzlies who may away the cut him if he can find a place to go well. I would imagine the memphis grizzlies would send a car to take him to the airport there. They're not going to be worried. I owe a the hands off dwight. You gotta make that he's our guy. They've probably got him at the airport the bus station or whatever it is they're going to do to get him to come to l._a. Lay the question is whether or not he's the best option here in l._a. Here's one horse talking about why he does not think it's a great fit. The lakers are in need of somebody who can be healthy and give them minutes minutes and that doesn't fit dwight howard or joe kim no art this point of their careers but i understand why the lakers are have those names on the list. I think this is unlikely. I i believe the lakers. Coach has won a younger more active player at this point in their careers a younger more active players sure but i don't know how often younger active are they walking around. I i was gonna say where where are they well. We did a poll of course obviously yesterday. Rods groups on twitter at which big man should the lakers sign and we put dwight howard or or noah it was fifty one percent a very close vote to dwight howard fifty one percent and i think you made a great point in earlier. Hey what do you have to lose. There's no risk you you know how much money and like you see one of these the n._b._a. Execs say hey they'll sign and if it doesn't work out just cut me. You don't have to give him a bunch of money. You don't get the grizzlies aren't gonna ask for draft picks to get dwight howard memphis. You just need to get him here and if it doesn't work and if at any point anthony davis or lebron or anybody else says you know what this guy i these gone. He's gone the very next day. There's no investment before when you're dealing with his deal and to get dwight is almost entirely unique. We've seen guys go from well-liked guys two guys that were less.
LA, Lakers And Achilles Tendon discussed on NBC Sports
"I get out to LA and chaos starts for the Lakers yesterday afternoon news comes down the demarcus cousins has had many sided tortured recent injury history he looks like he set for a supermax deal as a member of the New Orleans pelicans he tears his Achilles tendon right I believe it was and then he decides I'm gonna re have you goes out to Golden State then he gets another injury to his quiet I believe recently before that he also which I mean the guy has been a walking mash unit and now he is towards his ACL and they're probably going to miss all of next year based on the way he finished off the finals it didn't seem like you fully recovered from his injuries already and now he's got another one I mean I feel awful for you but you have to almost one ever going to be able to come back and play in the NBA hardly at all again and this is obviously a big blow for the Lakers as well as he was a guy I think that many people hope maybe they got a good bye on him and he's gonna be able to outperform the contract if they got him this is tough this is a big hit not just for the markets because it's but also for the Lakers and you always wonder when you have those injuries whether one leads to another and obviously we had a lot of discussion about this with Kevin Durant he's got at her capital Seoul entity goes out and somehow he tears Achilles and I think most people out there kind of anticipate that if you have one injury it makes you more susceptible not just to that injury but also to your body adjusting in trying to to protect itself and then you injure

"demarcus" Discussed on The Doomsday Podcast
"But I think the title or the column that was sort of about, hey, he had these guys DeMarcus Lawrence had Jerry, Jerry is a good negotiator. But sometimes the player has the Amer he also had the help of several local beat riders beat writers were out but racing to his defense on this thing. But you mentioned early on the labor from the torn labrum that's an interesting to go shading tactic. I mean, we don't see this. That often were player says, you know, what I think I'll hold off on this surgery till we get to sing done in. That is become a huge problem. This is a three to four month recovery from a torn labrum. So even now that everybody's hap. Happy at all this still. I mean, he won't be ready in my mind for the start of training camp. I'll bet they kinda ease him in. I if he plays in the one preseason game in that might be enough for him. But that that's an interesting part. He already put up the numbers. So he had leverage in that in that regard. And it helps that people like David Irving messed up. He's gone, Gregory suspended indefinitely and arguably I mean, do you think do you agreed with me that this guy's the best player on the Cowboys? I argue I was going to say is their best defensive player. But then I remembered sort of the evolution that we've seen with Jalen Smith and the vast potential of late in Vanda rest. So you'll have him over both those guys just say, probably so, but yeah, but but it's close, you know, it's getting close. But yeah, I think because of the position Jaki pies because of the unique rusher that he is. And let's put that into. Some kind of context, you know, I mentioned that he plays a run in the past with equal ability and not every pass rusher. Does that? But he he's recorded twenty five sacks over the last two seasons. And until they acquire Robert Quinn in the trade with Miami. Robert Quinn medicine, man. The only other player they didn't have another player on the roster who had more than nine and a half sacks during that same period of time. So we had nearly what three times as many saxes is anybody else on the roster and given that nobody knows what might happen with Randy, Gregory, whether he'll be suspended for the whole season, or whether for some reason, the Cowboys seemed to believe he's going to be available for week one forgot to do our.

"Like anytime something like this happens if people with what you have people try to do is they try to compartmentalize it into a place. Right. So they take soccer. They're like, oh, well, this is what happens in soccer Adam Jones headed situation that Fenway park. That's right. That that is a totally different sport than where DeMarcus cousins talking about this happening football players tell you about the things they here in the crowd. All the time. You've had games in hockey. Where people have have bananas thrown at them. This ain't about the sport in every time. Somebody tries to localize it in that way that MRs the larger point this racism stuff is not some isolated thing that just often some pockets in the way to people wanna talk about his try to put it off on this place. One thing cousins say it was I didn't wanna say what city these things happen. And he's like because I didn't want to put this all fan base. Because that's what happens it stops being about a larger macro issue. And it turns into will you know, how they are inserted. Place here, but there are solutions technological or otherwise, right? We have microphones we have cameras and arena is otherwise for Valence state. If the people who are doing this stuff truly want to ruin the fan experience for everybody. Right. Which is to say everybody is on a wire. Now, everybody gets taped recorded, then the NBA or any of these arenas concerned implement that. Or try this with that happens. Somebody like DeMarcus cousins DeMarcus cousins the whole team. It'd be like, you know, what we're not going back on the court until that dude, right? There comes down here and says this to my face, they will shut a whole lot of his down that happens that would work coming up vix is as a kid thirsty to be the Lakers coach or any coax any.

To on DeMarcus is doing and maybe just at least show that you're gonna come down and DeMarcus DaMarcus has been I'm even double teams six years. So so it's like you're gonna single well single cover him on the block. He's going to be like, okay here, we go. I will say this. The warriors won't need DeMarcus cousins. To beat the Washington Wizards they'll need DeMarcus cousins to help with New Orleans and LA both LA teams when they're down there. So when it comes to him coming back, okay? And bring DeMarcus cousins into this. Hey, man. When would you like to come back, it'd be easier against the Washington Wizards, but they don't need him for that. And you might you might need them to deal with Anthony Davis, or whatever the the clippers are the we're up against, but I do know. And it's to your point you already suss it out. They have asked. Medical staff away and obvious. Rick celebrating Dr Rick celebrating Steve to weigh in Bob Myers away in but DeMarcus and his people to weigh in in terms of let's make sure we're all good win this, and I think that's really smart and really collaborative. Absolutely. It's not like him going. I want this day, and they're like, no. Or the worst saying you're playing this date or else like it? This whole process has been really collaborated with everybody. So the day that they eventually do choose which obviously is in the offing. Everyone's going to be ready to roll, right?

"demarcus" Discussed on Around the Horn
"We know about their offensive numbers realize they have nine takeaways on defense in their last three games as well. So the Cowboys play perfect football. They can't give the ball away. And they're going to have to grind it out. If they can stay close. I'm not sure they're gonna be able to do all plastic. I don't think the Cowboys have a chance the last five times a leading rusher has face Elise. Leading rushing defense. Only one of those times leading rusher got one hundred yards. They're gonna stop seeing. This is gonna put it all on deck that stops. The Dax can have to win this game for them. I don't think he can last regains Heathrow at the total of three touchdown passes. I think he's twenty fifth in the league in total QBR. I just don't think that can win for them. And that's what who has to win it for him. Would he page? Yeah. I agree. Totally with Bill, but I'll play your silly game. Joan and say how they can win the game you come up with a cover three defense in disguise. It you start with three safeties. And you move one of them out as soon as the ball is snapped. So you can go from a cover three took over to. And because you have. Thing that you think this is gonna flummoxed drew Brees. You you have not seen drew Brees play with you. You have him. You got to have him a little bit confused like you are right now. Go. All right. Well, because you've you've got to get some turnovers against him. I mean, here's a guy who's only throw winning substantial year. So if you're somewhat for monks ING him in the backfield you've got a chance to defensively and if if DeMarcus Lawrence plays like DeMarcus ware and comes in against all right? Those are the top. And you gave me the answer. What he paid you came up with a cover three. And you believe that's the way to get. The drew Brees. Cal Sean you. Well, a man just was the definition of flummoxed just got eleven points. I'm not sure. I will say that Don Davis right earlier about the turnovers. The Cowboys are very good at not turning the ball over. But they haven't won a game where they do turn the ball over. So they do have to play a nearly perfect game tonight. She less word. I tell you if the Cowboys doing this game they're in the playoffs. I think this will clinch the virtually Clinton a playoff berth for them. The eagles have scheduled down the stretch Cowboys and getting or they could lose this game Lewis next week. Maybe win one more game. It's still get in the playoffs. That's at the end of sees looks like. Abc's? We'll move on. Baker Mayfield is still being asked questions and Baker Mayfield is still talking. Take a listen, I didn't like the move and people don't have to care..
"demarcus" Discussed on Warriors Off-Court
"Day. We've all been waiting for finally came to their DeMarcus cousins introductory press conference has been two plus weeks since news surface of the words were signing him to the mid level of five point three million dollars. And he's finally. You know, what's in Oakland was at the practice ity making his formal introduction. Bruce. You were there today. What what was your big takeaway from from the presser nothing particular came out of it, nothing really dramatic thought. It was interesting that he said he plans to come back not just in good shape. But better than ever, you know, he's pretty confident about the way his rehab is going. I think expect him to play in January probably pretty realistic. We don't know for sure, but you know, through some light hearted moments in there, which I think people kinda wanted to see he's he's generally not a terribly, you know, funny engaging guy he's kind of quiet and got a naturally skeptical. But he got off a couple of good lines. Somebody asked him if fee and Durant and in Draymond you just get in a big brawl now and get it over with because. Yeah. Might as well that. Yeah. You could tell it was joking. It's funny lines about Klay Thompson for being for such a dull guy, there's never a dull moment, and and it was kind of dramatic ac-. Standing there with that number zero jersey actually looking at the jersey that he's gonna wear and realizing that the warriors are going to have five all stars on the court that some point. And if he's the DeMarcus cousins of all that's going to be pretty pretty formidable. Yeah. I think that was the weirdest thing for me is, you know, there's so much talk about something like this when when the news breaks, but it doesn't really feel real until you actually see him on a stage holding his New Jersey. Even when they announced that they had a form that formerly signed him. It still didn't feel completely real. I definitely found myself a couple times during that press conference kind of letting my mind my mind wander and thinking I'm actually going to cover this this season. Like this guy is going to be on the same team. Kevin Durant, Steph curry Klay Thompson, Draymond green. That's insane. But there's a lot of reasons why this is happening. I'm sure anyone listening to this podcast kind of knows the basic backstory he had an achilles serious. Achilles injury in January. And because to him had no offers on the table in free agency..

"La the same thing can easily be said for democracy might not be back in time what's the difference between saying he might not be back in time for even see that demarcus cousins right like i came back and had like a month month and a half with cleveland is an absolute trainwreck demarcus cousins might not get back 'til january february they're going to give them more than two weeks while they're going to trade deadline they're going to play him he said he can be ready he's going to be reading in training camp they said november maybe it's maybe it's christmas time january february there's there's no there's no need to rush him back but guys like demarcus cousins for them to so all of a sudden take you back seat to draymond green we who he probably thinks he's better than to andre iguodala probably thinks he's better than steph curry thompson durant okay should different players but he's gonna want his so you're telling me time and you're starting five does not include demarcus cousins demarcus cousins has to be involved he can't just be a guy who started five yourself know if you're telling me you're gonna put the way the golden state run through offense you're gonna like demarcus cousins like trot his way up and down the court and like post up and just go ahead and just slowed down that way no i don't think so i don't think so i think i think they're going to end up regretting on either end up cutting them i think he's going to be frustrated i mean he's going to be irritated bilby be winning so he'll be happy but he's going to be able to get his he's going to get his points he's not going to get his rebounds he's not going to get as many pachulia javale mcgee this guy here is you're going to have to adjust his game sure is he holds onto the ball too much for what they do but the reason why they've asked and i've read that before like you know the the steve kerr's offense the center holds onto the ball for like one point something seconds at cousins is holds the ball on the two point five on average seconds so he's got to get rid of the ball quicker well the reason why steve kerr's had to get rid of the ball quick because they've all sucked devolve sucked so it's like you get the ball quick look i look the pass that's what his centers have been protect the rim do some rebound and just run around with the other four just do what you do your thing when he gets back and he's healthy do you agree that it's the greatest starting five ever symbol than nba history no it's a better mix these or whatever the hell it was but it's the greatest starting five you've ever seen that's that's that's obvious it's an embarrassment of riches i get it but i always look at the situation and on paper it looks great you know we we see this all the time how do how do players alpha males like demarcus cousins and yes i will obviously cut him some slack for his time in sacramento what a nightmare with all those coaches and all the losing a mess and then to make matters worse and he goes into like you said they get better when he's when he's hurt they do they do better they're winning percentage rises when he's off the court and he's nursing his achilles so okay great so he gets the deal golden state is obviously the the best situation why would you turn it down and i just think based on the way he is and what he's looking to get after the season which is a huge free agent contract there's no way he's going to walk through this happily so what's the one thing that he proves that he could that he could get along on a team of hall of famers who are just basically not taking any crap yes it's the best case scenario for a guy like demarcus cousins that doesn't change his spots but he's who he is you already heard it like last year the way he was getting along new orleans was loving demarcus cousins now as it turned out they found out that that you know the nonni left they played a different style more little more uptempo which i would agree golden state's going to be running left and right but you know what was i do you've seen the athletes the.
