Fresh update on "national football league" discussed on WFAN Sports Radio_FM Show
"I've talked a lot about major League baseball tonight. Uh, if you always want to continue on that That vein. Uh, I'm good with that. If you want to comment to the big question, I've asked today his baseball better than it was 10 years ago. I say no. But I'm sure there's somebody out there like Herrera, You're just this old dude. Right? You've been you're longing for this week in baseball with Mel Allen to come back. You want to go back to the days? Where we didn't have every game on television, and you hate the designated hitter. All right. Maybe I have that old traditional guy. But please tell me if there's anybody thinks that baseball's better than it was 10 years ago. I love to hear that person tonight and tell me why. 855 to 1 to 4 to 27855 to 1 to 4 to 27. I don't know if there's anybody out there America that will tell you that baseball Is better today than it was. 10 years ago because I don't think that's truth anymore. I think it's become a boring game. That's Station to station, no action, and there's a reason why people are tuning out. And I'm still looking. Please tell me how baseball has been able to attract that elusive younger audience has been chasing for the last 15 years at the heart of The church Channel fan that's getting bored with the game in the direction that you're taking it 8552 on two fortune to seven. I didn't want toxin college football today is well, I saw this story coming out with the college football playoff system expanding From 4 to 12 teams seems like a pretty good idea. Until I started thinking about it a little bit more and doing a little bit more research. If I take baseball Excuse me, Take football college football. From 4 to 12 teams. Into the playoffs. We ask you a question. What happens to all the ball games? What happens to the Rose Bowl and the Orange Bowl in the Fiesta Bowl and all the tradition of college football in ballgames. You realize the two cannot exist at the same time, so as great as this 12 team college football playoff is gone, and everybody's screaming like this is the greatest single Lord world. I can't wait to see this happen. Do we realize that if this goes through that this is pretty much the end of the bowl system as we know it. And I doubt That many of these bulls will ever survive. If you go to a 12 team college football playoffs, which will diminish all of your New year's day bowls that we had for the last 50 years. So if you had your choice between it expanded 12 team playoff Or the Orange Rose Fiesta Bowl. Continuing which would you prefer 855 to 1 to 4 to 27855 to 1 to 4 to 2 to 7 the number of you to join us here on CBS Sports Radio Gerry's at Jacksonville, You've been waiting patiently. He doesn't want to talk about baseball or college football. Wanted to comments about the National Football League, Gary you've been holding on forever, so I got to get you on the air Welcome. You're on CBS Sports radio. Thanks, Richie. I just wanted to ask you a question. Please about I know your big 49 understand the big trade they made with my dolphins in the dress, and they moved up to get three. Your thoughts about you know, the dress capital They gave up in them so I can trade Lance, would you have rather as a fan, Justin Fields or Matt Jones? And just your whole comment on that all of that, please? Because I haven't heard you since. I don't know what? Hey, Gary. Thank you so much for asking me that. So, um, it was it was. It was kind of a roller coaster day because I think what they're looking for in San Francisco is some consistency and I think that if you looked at the guy they got, he has the biggest upside. He has the biggest ceiling. You already know what fields is gonna be. I think that there's There's probably more information and more film, and he's seen more better competition. She kind of know where he is. I think they were looking for a big home run, and I think they were looking for a guy. That they could have grown into something really, really special. Bottom line is it's a huge, huge gamble for John Lynch, because regard yet, Justin Fields, you know where he is going to project if you go out and get the kids that they got I'm not sure you know how good he is going to be, but they know that there's a bigger upside to him because there's more of an unknown and maybe he is that arbitrage that undervalued thing that you can go out there and get because other people don't see the value because he went to a smaller school. I like it as as much as I like. Jimmy G just doesn't seem to be that up. He just He's not that guy That's going to get you over the top. And I think that's why John Lynch says I've got everything I need to win a Super Bowl. I just have to have consistent play from quarterback. That's going to be just a little bit better than when I got right now. Little bit more durable. Right, because I think what Chris Green was looking at as as a dolphin stand The tour experiment If it doesn't work out, get the draft capital and, uh, to go after whether it's Russell Wilson, or, you know, you see that capital to try again in the dress? A wife kind of hedging his death. Yeah, two doesn't work out exactly And I think it's an upside for both of although I was still waiting for I guess maybe just the instant gratification that I still think Tua has all the talent in the world. He's got to stay healthy. In order to to take the Dolphins where they want to go. But man, there are so many people that were just back, biting at him and sniping in him before he took his first snap. One of the things is if you look around from Alabama quarterbacks, how many of those Alabama quarterbacks that were fantastic in college? Project on to the next level of the National Football League, and I think that's one of the things that you see from Alabama. They've got players all over the place. But I think people question if you're a quarterback that went to Alabama. Are you a product of the system? Are you really as good as your record says you are, and I think that's why a lot of people looked at too. I like Is he really that good? Or did he just have everybody in the brother around him and made him look that good? I still think to, uh And for the folks I know at Alabama, they think he's that good. We'll have to see if he stays healthy for an entire year. What he looks like. Thanks for the call. Appreciate Gary. Glad it took your call. Let me go Talk to Craig in Iowa. Next, Craig, welcome. You're on CBS Sports radio. Thanks Rich. Thanks for taking my call. Thanks, brother. What's going on? Uh, just had an idea. You know, when you talked about, uh, you made the reference to baseball players nowadays being like softball players, you know, well Well, why don't we make some rules like they do in the slow pitch softball leagues or they do a three home run? Limit it all out of 13 If he hits more than It's more than three home runs since and help that will speed the game up. No, but but it would completely change. That's an interesting thought. Somebody called up earlier and said, You know what? You.
Fresh update on "national football league" discussed on KDWN Programming
"But a reminder that back in the day Davis beat Stanford in one of those games to open up a season for them. Uh, Alabama has always done this. Yes, he's always scheduled one in the middle of the year. And if it's a revenue game, and there's revenue needs to be spread around, then that should be something that everyone looks at. However, when you start looking at home and homes and all the things that we see how many times we've seen Ohio State not leave the state of Ohio For five weeks to start to season off. So these are all things I think that need to be standardized. And when I When I talk about standardization, it almost sounds like the National Football League and when we come back from the break Talk a little bit about the pressures of the NFL and college football for the dollar, which is something that everybody is looking at today. We want to do that Chuck and continue with this conversation regarding the The voting that will be going on regarding the playoffs of the future and college football. So let's take a short time out here. Again I'm Harvey had with Chuck Asian. Listening to our Trojan football report were with your year.
Urban Meyer Really Believes Tim Tebow Can Help Jacksonville
"Believes Tim Tebow could make the team Give me one thought on Tim Tebow. Why? I mean, I The only reason that this is happening is because every Mars the head coach of the Jacks with Jaguars in urban Meyer was not to the National Football League. Tim Tebow would not be entertaining anything like this, so if he wants have a chance to play a new position. Play for a man that if he could adopt him, Tebow, he would when it comes to urban Meyer, but that's my one thought. Why Tim Tebow? Why?

It comes from a great family. In fact it father Carlton spent a short period of time I believe in training camp with the San Francisco 40 Niners after his college career was over at Southwest Minnesota State and Marshall, Minnesota. So there's a little bit of A brief connect there even though Carlton did not spend a ton of time in the organization. But Trey, you know the conversation about training. Lance is going to come back to his Experience that's going to come back to playing at the FCS level Mark, but I think what what stands out to me is one He checks all the boxes physically, and I've had the The opportunity to be around college football programs like the Brassica in West Virginia and cover power five in the Big 12 in the Big 10 and as he seen a C C And Trey. Lance has all the physical tools you need to succeed in the National Football League. But more importantly, mark He's a great young man. He's

But there's a virtual south by southwest going on online through saturday march twentieth. And i got a chance to participate. Let me tell you a little bit about it. I've been scheduled to moderate a panel last year gaming for good but the festival got cancelled entirely when we knew there was going to be a virtual festival this year the company that sponsored the panel skills decided to go ahead and do it so we recorded our discussion over zoom in late february and it was really enlightening and very made me very hopeful about things.

Has you can still buy a ticket to the festival. There's a link in my story for that too. But here's the basics. I learned from from the panel. The panelists we had three of them. there's a program called gamers outreach that provides video game carts that means it has like a secure tv and a game console on. It's it's either hook to wireless or however they do in the hospital in two hundred thirty children's hospitals around the us the founder zach. Weigel began the program when he was a high schooler halo tournament. The got cancelled He'd organiz the tournament but public safety official voice concerns about the high school cafeteria being used for a hobby. That was quote corrupting the minds of america's youth in quote. The guy said so to show the gamers from it meant well the next year weigel try it again and raise money for a local children's hospital with that resulting tournament part of that he learned.

Some Capitol Hill Lawmakers Back Amazon Workers' Attempt To Unionize
"Nearly six thousand amazon employees who work at a warehouse in bessemer alabama are voting by mail on whether to unionize. If they do this will be the first union amazon facility in this country. Here's jennifer bates. Who works there. I keep butterflies and butterflies. Normally come to calm me but hey this is my stomach faithful. It seems like it's getting bigger and bigger full of butterflies. Because there's no break in. Think i don't know how kogo nerve wracking. The election ends later. This month and i should mention. That amazon is a financial supporter of npr. But we cover them like any other company. Some lawmakers support the union. Including senator marco marco rubio or republican and of course president biden also michigan congressman andy levin earlier this month. He and a group of democrats traveled to bessemer. Good morning congressman. Good morning noel. How are you good thanks. What did amazon employees. They're tell you about why they want to unionize. Well you know a union election so often are about basic dignity and that was really true here. I was shocked to learn what it's really like in there They work in a facility. That's like fourteen football fields and it can take ten minutes to walk to a break room. They've to half hour breaks in a ten hour shift so they might get effectively ten hours to eat lunch be by the time they walk there and back lot of them. Don't feel like they can go to the bathroom. Except on their break. And they're watched and quantified every second they're monitored visually a listening geo positioning and every second they're not on task is measured and if they have a certain number of minutes off task in a week they could be fired sometimes might not even be a person involved it was really kind of dehumanizing to me. Here's the argument. That amazon makes amazon. Says look our employees. Earn fifteen dollars an hour which is a good wage in a place like bessemer alabama. Some of them have health benefits. 401k's essentially they have got the benefits that a union would get them. They don't need a union. What do you make of that argument. I'd like to tell that argument to any national football league player and the actor and a movie any presenter on major television or radio networks all of whom have a union every single one. The idea that unions are only for people who are the most poorly paid. It's ridiculous the one person who is unionized. That every airline is the pilot so this argument is ridiculous. These workers deserve a seat at the table to discuss a safe workplace. During a pandemic they deserve a seat at the table to have a workplace. That's human and a real person can go to and great make fifteen dollars. An hour amazon should pay them a lot more the owner of the company. The main owner had his wealth increase. Seventy eight billion dollars during a pandemic and they're about pay jeff bezos in their bag bragging about paying people fifteen dollars an hour there. What's wrong with workers having their own organization just that they can have input in their in in their work lives. And that's all these people are seeking is a seat at the table during this trip to alabama that you went on your colleague congressman jamaal. Bowman said this doesn't stop with amazon. He mentioned lift. Uber tesla and walmart as well. What is the ultimate goal here. The goal is for workers to be able to form a union and bargain collectively. If they darn well please. Noel were down to six percent of private sector workers in this country needing union. We're gonna pass the proactive in the congress and the president is going help. Lead into new era when workers can have a say at the table. It's long pastime in this country. Michigan congressman andy levin. Thank you
Wide Receivers Were the Order of the Day on Franchise Tag Day
"Today was tagged a in the National Football League. We found out stars that we're getting the franchise tag, which may preclude them from Changing teams, and we found out some players that didn't get the franchise tag. Wide receivers were the order of the day and Alan Robinson gets the franchise tag. Chris Godwin gets the franchise tag will have more on Godwin and Brady coming up in a few minutes because this is a really big deal. But now who do you go after right? Who's the number one wide receiver you go after, and The guy who was going to be the beneficiary of this. And look, we've talked about who the three best wide receivers were gonna be in free agency this year, right? You and I did this about a month ago, and it was Robinson and it was Godwin and it was Kenny Golladay. You got it? And I know that that some people are going to be a little nervous. About Golladay. Oh, he was hurt. Last year, he was on pace for his best year in 2020 until he got hurt. I am so in on Kenny Golladay. Getting hurt last year doesn't concern me. You know anytime, you miss games, whether it's zits calf or it's a hamstring. It's not that big a deal right? And it's not something where wait. There's a big injury and maybe they're not going to be as fast as they once were. It's not that big a deal. I go after Kenny Golladay because he is everything. That a team's gonna want in a wide receiver. He can be the big target in the red zone. He's someone is going to stretch the defense. He is terrific. Listen. Matthew Stafford has been blessed with good wide receivers and great wide receivers his time in Detroit before he got traded to Los Angeles and Kenny Golladay. Is that good? I mean, he's going to get paid and He's the big winner today with the other guy's getting franchised and Kenny Golladay is going to get a lot of money and rightfully so, because he is extremely talented. I love the kid. Congratulations to him. Not only will he get out of Detroit and whatever the next phase of their world is, but he's going to get a mountain of cash to do it.

Philadelphia Eagles to start Jalen Hurts at QB over Carson Wentz
"Jalen hurts time in philadelphia and jalen hurts will make his first. Nfl start sunday against the new orleans. Saints so welcome to the league young man you go against a really good carson wentz back up her and while this seems crazy to all of us it's also kind of crazy to doug peterson i don't take carson wentz out of it. I didn't expect us to be in this situation back in april. So let's just start there. Listen everybody around jalen or around. Carson has to has to elevate their game. We can't do this. They can't do this alone right. They can't they can't do that. It's impossible to to attack. You know an opponent would just one guy so But i fully expect our guys. I play hard and do everything they can to try and win along perfectly clear here what's become crazy about. This is not the way that all of this went down because it became very obvious that a quarterback change needed to be made. But just the fact that here we are in twenty twenty and we'll probably see tastes hill against jalen hurts in this game i key. Let's start with you. What do you think of the eagles finally making this new well. It's about time. I think we you know a lot of the media around and been talking about this for weeks on of weeks but as they say better late than never and i think it's jalen hurts his job to lose and i'm talking about long term. I think when you look at the situation. And i've been around a lot of quarterbacks in my time in organizations and when you say here's a guy who has a opportunity on a two to three games sample that he could take this job and make it his own. He cannot be coursing wins. What i mean by that is he cannot play like carson with. He has to play like the jalen hurts. That was drafted in top fifteen picks in the national football league. That guy that we saw at oklahoma the guy that we saw a brief time in alabama. If he does that and he can ignite this offense. Then it's his job to lose. Come next off season. I think the philadelphia eagles are looking for the same things. I think when you look at it they say okay. If jalen does what he's supposed to do we go into the offseason with a quarterback battle. Ota's as many camp training camp. Give the up to carson wentz. Because that's what we're gonna do because you follow the money and then you put carson carson wentz carson jalen carson with a short lease. You say you got two to three games to prove yourself and if not we go snatch twenty one is hurts. His team were done which it. That is the way you do it.
NFL 'very likely' to use rapid-result virus tests for players
"The National Football League says it has an accurate rapid covert 19 test cave because Alex Tasker has the details. The Wall Street Journal says the NFL and a pair of biotech companies in recent weeks have studied a different kind of test that delivers covert test results in 30 minutes. The standard testing results could take days for a response. The new test developed by Mesa has been used on the selection of league personnel across five teams who also submitted their samples for standard PCR testing. The 917 tests using both methods each produced 27 positive samples in 890 negative samples, which were a perfect match. The developer wouldn't put a price tag on how much it costs to run each test. Eventually they hope to have these tests in people's homes sooner rather than later.
Pro Bowl will be played out on Madden NFL 21
"Maybe you missed it. I sure did. But the NFL announced last month there is not going to be a Pro Bowl this season. That's the National Football League All Star game, which is fine makes sense.

Chargers player tests positive; facility open
"Couple of tidbits of information from the National Football League. Uh, obviously, the positive tests continue to roll in from Tom Pel Acero. The Giants have quarantine all but four. Of their offensive lineman after one tested positive for covert 19 That's from Tom Palace Arrow. Now the Giants play tonight. I believe against the Tampa Bay Bucks. So I'm not is that is that You know, I got my game screwed up tonight's Carolina in Atlanta. I'm sorry. Do they play this weekend? Tampa Bay in New York. I thought I thought that they are the Monday night game Monday that okay, so they play Monday night. And now all before their offense of linemen have been quarantined and also for me and Rappaport. Rick of the Chargers have a positive test. You just reported Chargers had a player test positive for covert 19. And that player in all close contacts were told to stay home and isolate. The team learned of this last night. The facility will be open, but all meetings will be virtual. So Charger's not practicing today. Wonder how if it all that will affect the game Sunday here in Denver? Yes. You gotta wonder. We'll see how this plays out.
Brandon Marshall on Browns chemistry now that Odell Beckham Jr is out for season due to ACL tear
"Shifting toward top story this morning news that we did all fear Odell Beckham junior lost for the season with a torn, left ACL. Keep in mind this is the third significant injury in Dell's career. This one has him out the remainder of the season head coach, Kevin Stephens, address the injury, and where the five and to Cleveland browns go from here. And Adele the energy brings the practice energy. He brings the Games you can't you can't No one else can bring that type of juice but. It's it's our job to find the guys that that can go compete that we can go put them in sponsor they can succeed. And I think. We'll be able to do that. That's not easy. Don't WANNA have to And I'm very disappointed for Odell. But that's the nature of this beast at injuries are part of this game and doesn't mean that many of us have to like it, but we do have to deal with it. Brandon. Brandon. How do expectations change now for the browns with Oh bj gone for the rest of the year Yeah I mean. They really don't change much. They should actually be better. Now this is unfortunate. Odell is a great player. It's it's going to be hard to replace his talent. You're going to miss them in moments you're gonNA, miss his playmaking ability. You're GonNa Miss, those times one to one going to miss those times where he breaks three four tackles and he can possibly. Get you back in a game or possibly even win one or two ball games but this team will be better because I believe there's no chemistry and no continuity. Well, we actually we all know that there's no chemistry and continuity. When you're dominant number one wide receiver, you put so much pressure on the play caller. You put so much pressure on the quarterback I experienced this throughout my career and I had. To learn how to communicate with quarterback communicate with the play caller because if you get an play callers, did they get out of rhythm and that's not what you want. You want that play caller to feel good about what he's dowling up. You also want that quarterback to be free think freely when he's dropping back going through the offense going through progressions. If he has one on one, he has landry on this. On this side. Well, people are going to say, well, why don't you throw del well, maybe two quarterback wants to go to Landry. So for that reason I think, Baker, will be better. He has a Guy Higgins that he has great chemistry with going back to his rookie year landry is his guy I think Baker will be better. There's going to be a lot of pressure on him to really work his offense now but now we're going to see if he is the real deal. So. If, if Landry's is guy, he's not, he's not having a bad year but he's on his spectacular year and I've heard you say though a wide receivers best friend is the other wide receiver because it takes them defensive pressure off him. But so far he's got zero touchdowns. He's actually thrown for more touchdowns than he's caught. So why do you expect Jarvis to be better and not worse? Well. It's more so about the offense I'm looking at. Them. Having success as an often when you look at Landry's banged up, he has a broken rib. He's been dealing with that but it could be because they've been they had too much emphasis on other guy on Odell trying to figure out how to get him going. So when that trade deadline come up, they're not trading him they actually find a way to make it work. So there's so many different reasons but I want this play caller to feel free and get into a rhythm I. Want this quarterback to drop back and go to his guys this team. How they win is on the ground and play action, but they're going to need to win throwing a ball like they did this past week sometimes in the national football league.
Bengals rookie, Tee Higgins, getting more comfortable in offense
"Lance McAllister. He is Dave Lapham. It's welcome in a special guest. He's the Bengals rookie wide receiver for catches on Sunday. 16 catches on the season. We welcome in tea, Higgins t. How are you? I'm good. You're doing good. He had a 26 yard or yesterday. That was the longest play from scrimmage for the Bengals against that Baltimore Ravens defense If you played against a defense on any level that was more aggressive than what the Ravens took us a posturing yesterday in that football game. Um, I mean, I've been in the league knows. You know me plan against other sue in the national championship there, David, Mrs. Really aggressive. So that's the first time I've seen that since that game. See, I mentioned 16 catches. Now It's 16 times you've hooked up with Joe talk to us about the the comfort level in the chemistry you feel it's developing between you and Joe, Ah, utility and better and better each week. No, you listen to me more and more now, so just go out there and practice catching those, You know balls that he's given me, you know. With this behind me, or in front of me. He knows over the shoulder, so they're out there making those plays. Giving him confidence in me is, you know good so It seems like on a week by week basis you're learning and the one thing you talked about early, and teammates had mentioned it to you don't flash. Don't show your hands earlier. These defensive backs the guys at this level, You know, just kind of feed off of that. That type of thing. What other things have you learned little nuances that you've already applied in the early stages of your NFL career? Yeah. I can't do too much dancing at the London coach when you were going to get Stevie, you know, you gotta get point from point A to point B. And you know a lot of guys. Honestly, they're they're really good for defeat, and they're going to read you. So you just You can't can't do too much Daphne Blonde scrimmage. 85 games into your NFL career, Is it what? You thought it was the game? What you thought it be from a speed and everything you have heard? How was it played out for you? Yeah, that will be a new is gonna be a lot faster, if not more physical, You know that. It has been exactly that. Nah, just really well, and you know, really Now so plated Ellis you like you said, Death Valley. I've been to Death Valley Broadcasting games for that environment. There's nothing like in a night game of Death Valley. You haven't lived until you've experienced something like that. And then in the SEC, all the visiting stadiums that you go to, of all the crowd noise mirroring what's it been like? Plant in the National Football League with covert, You know 19 in the year 2020. That's been so different for everybody. What's that been like a Zen experience. Yeah. You know, having a no fan and stuff like that been really, You know really strange And we're you know, you know, I've been playing football on my whole life. Always have fans, and so is it really just feels like a scream? It's you got. Ah, Brain Accutane. Gotta bring no energy, So I mean, that's what we try to do. You make a play to bring all energy I'm getting so tight, you know, came allowing the crowd when there's no fans in the stadium, so That's really how we go about it. T fans get to see you play on the field, but I don't think they have an appreciation for everything that goes with it in terms of following the protocols in the testing, and that's got away. I would think that's gonna be on your mind. And yet you have toe push it aside to play football. What's it like dealing with everything else beyond just playing the game right now? Yeah. You know, you got to get tested everything the day at a certain time. And, you know, get our math everywhere. So I mean, It's been really, you know, really weird, But everyone's going to just too and you know, just following protocol just so we could go out there and play the game that we both. Yeah, it's an interesting year instead of going on the road and facing these hostile crowds. Your face in a hostile enemy and covert 19, you know, and it's like you never know when it's going to crop up like it did in Tennessee, in Miami and other places, And I guess this This is the year where you have to go from a mental standpoint, be mentally strong and be ready to pivot on a just, I mean the team that pivots and adjust the best, you know, be at the Patriots with what they're going through the Titans and other teams. And teams that really don't get affected by covert. But after almost, you know, work to make sure you don't every single day of the season, the team that handles that type of business best this year. The teams are going to be okay. Right. Just like you know, you just gotta be careful with the alpha people, not people, not always. In the building every single day, you know, just really quarantine yourself for what? You know a few more weeks.

A za an outstanding leader as he lived up to everything that you thought. My understanding is after the game, he instead to the to the defense. You continue to play like that. We won't lose another game this year. I mean, that's that's what you're looking for. From your guy at quarterback in it. Oh, yeah. 100% You know you want to go out like that is going to take Take ownership of you know how we play it off. As you know, we gotta compliment our defense when they go out there and get stuff. You know, we gotta go out There is four points where they'd be a field, road or touch now. And him.

Hundreds of billions of dollars are at stake, so we can expect the league to do everything it can to get on the field as Faras fans in the stands. Philadelphia already says no. It will probably go city by city. But there's another big problem Besides the pandemic. And that is social justice. If NFL players insist on injecting politics into Game day, pro football will get hurt, not enough to put it on the disabled list. But many fans, they're not going to enjoy left wing displays. Already. We've seen New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees castigated for saying he believes players should stand for the national anthem Freeze actually had to apologize. Why Because most of his team mates are black. And sympathize with protest ng during the anthem. Bree's new is team around would be damaged if he didn't back down. There is now a tremendous appear pressure in NFL locker rooms to support The black lives matter. Movement disagree with that trouble begins. Theater felt should have a simple rule.

"The National Football League Leaf Mike Lives matter. Commissioner goodell statement follows a video from NFL players last night, calling on him to say precisely that joining us now is seen in sports. Analysts in USA Today a Communist Christine Brennan Christine I of. How did this come about I mean do we know was? Was goodell feeling pressure from players, fans, owners, or is he just sensing a change in the country? I think it's more the latter Anderson Sensing the change. We are hearing that he was not pressured by the Donald Trump. Statement earlier that he didn't feel the need to react. When Donald Trump of course was saying positive things about drew brees, so it wasn't that Certainly, this has been four years in the making, so it wasn't exactly a rush job. In the sense that Colin Kaepernick was speaking out in August of two thousand sixteen, and of course here we are now. I do think I've known Roger. Goodell for a long time Anderson we grew up together he on the PR side, and the as a journalist and I. do think that these are things that he cares about and I. I know a lot of people criticize him all the time, but I can see him watching what's going on listening to his players? He said in that statement he said if there are no black players, there's no national football league. He knows that and he means it and I would have loved to see him. Apologize Colin Kaepernick. I would've loved to see him. Say something about Cabernet, but maybe that's for another day, but I do think the NFL has gone out here in a big way, and I am sure one of their biggest fans donald trump is not happy about this today. Would the owners had to agree to Goodell saying this? The owners usually agree of or android. Goodell does what the owners want. That is a great question. I have not yet been able to get the answer to that. As you probably know many of your personnel that at least ten NFL owners have given to Donald. Trump's campaign. They are big big. Donald Trump supporters including Jerry Jones with the cowboys Dan. Snyder here in Washington and I'm going to guess at some of them are not entirely pleased about this, either because there trump guys and they have not signed Cabernet obviously, no one has and they definitely. The they've put their money right where there is with with trump so. Now. You've got Roger Goodell going against the wishes of Donald. Trump that is a fact I think that Roger Goodell is sensing the mood of the nation and I think he's certainly with the majority of the nation and something that should be said. Young Fans Anderson are big fans. Of Cabernet. They bought all those Nike Jerseys a Nike. T shirts a couple of years ago with cabinet campaign in two thousand eighteen, that was so successful marketing campaign with Nike and so for your future fan base. This is a very very positive. Move me not for the older people, but those fans are going to be around for the next fifty years buying season tickets. I think. Roger Goodell. I WanNa bring in Benjamin, watching former NFL player, and I believe He's the author of under our skin, getting real about racing, getting free from the fears and frustrations that divide us. Benjamin I! Mean you wrote about this in in a under our skin. I'm wondering how you what you make. Roger Goodell statement. About them, we all have certain reactions, but whether he is sincere, or or if he's sincere, I think great good can come from this, and you listen to what he said we the NFL condemns racism. The systematic oppression of black people the next step. is to start addressing within the NFL. So this is a good thing. This is a great knowledge. Moment and I agreed that I do think Roger Goodell cares about these issues. But we look internally into the NFL and we just watched the NFL draft. We saw on our screens where there what gird many blacks and sea level positions. We know that there aren't many many minorities much less black people in ownership. There's three head. Coaches are black. How do we address those issues in the NFL? That's where the proof comes. That's where the action comes is by addressing the nepotism problem that I believe is still exists in the NFL desperate. We can kind of take this statement. Great Statement. We imply whether it was a pressure of players, which again I applaud our players from leading this now let's go to the next step and action. Let's see the proof when we look at NFL clubs now moving forward and Benjamin, your former teammate drew brees obviously had controversy this week when he said he'd never agree with NFL. Players who knelt during the national anthem. He's since apologized for saying that. Do you accept that apology? Of course of course I know drew is no secret play with do for several years led him and his family. I think that we have to collectively understand that when someone says something that they didn't mean something, no misinterpreted and they apologize. We forget that we move on. Do, said perfectly in a statement that he is going to with his actions through feels I. Think the biggest thing though is. He said he's going to listen. And that's the same thing you hurt Roger Goodell say. I'm going to listen look. We live in a country where we can have a multitude of different perspectives, if drew doesn't with people kneeling for the flag. That's fine what he does have to. Do is understand the plight of others understand the pain of others and be willing to step into their shoes and say you know what I may not agree with that I mean I understand that, but because I love you. Because I love your humanity, I'm willing to listen to where you're coming from and I know the on a shot of ago. Christine it's interesting because when when this was being discussed. When with Colin Kaepernick and others, there were a lot of fans who seem to not appreciate the idea of players taking a knee. Certainly, the president did and It seemed like the pendulum. See when once you know. Game started again and Games are being played. It seems like a lot of the owners backtracked.

I think you know the absolute you know there's a lot of people that look like you're getting what I was planning you know they felt like they were going in different directions they once they weren't representing the players but truly I I think the union does represent players are specially in in situations like this they provide a lawyer I you know if you go in front of the basically the management of the National Football League and which is the commissioner and all the other decisions that they occupy in the front office and you know it in what happens is you literally sit down I don't say it in a large meeting room which is that the table probably can see thirty people so when you're sitting in one of the commissioners is sitting at the other yeah it feels like you know you're getting your final sentence and but what happens is they present evidence and the evidence is the video of the game or something else that you've done either off the field and are you watch and sit there and there's attorneys are along with the commissioner and a lot of other people that are part of the National Football League and they make accusations why did you do this and in the case of a particular play bass wall the film down to the point where you think you've got plenty of time to make decisions you know you're running up there and be just before the contact they slow down so it makes it looks like it like you're walking in the park you know like you got you know several minutes to make a decision on how you want to do this not realizing that that is the way it happens everything is bang bang and what I mean by that is the players are so big and strong and fast now that when these situations occur for the most part they are so quick and you know moving your head around the state not to have the helmet to helmet contact is ridiculous because it doesn't take into effect if you're defender what the often if the player is going to do and you know so many times the offense player actually dogs who. head and they're the ones that are creating the helmet to helmet hit but you know I I do think that you know with with with his continued infractions over a period of time I think you have a cell is getting more and more just in a demand that this behavior will not. it will not continue and they'll they'll do whatever it takes to stanchions find other things that'll just delay or eliminated behavior. take.

"The highest level in the National Football League so to do something like this and have you know the the the white Sox in the cryo chamber and the homeless situation but the biggest takeaway from me is that no throughout all of this right all the things that are going on he hasn't had time to develop a relationship in the chemistry with his quarterback because he hasn't been there and that's the biggest thing for me this is in a situation like in Pittsburgh where he has familiarity with Ben Roethlisberger he understands the timing already they've been together for years this isn't that he's going to a new situation a new team with a new quarterback that he have to develop that same type of chemistry if you want to be successful with this team and he hasn't been out there due to these injuries in these things that we've that we've already mentioned so that's the part that kind of shocks me about all of this Antonio brown knows what it takes to compete at the highest level and to be successful and I think as of right now he's kind of taking a step back in that learning curve at least with the Oakland Raiders thing greater France including the one in my left and Jason fits a just because in their eyes and waiting for him to get on the field because when he gets on the feel great things can happen all the other stuff around it so we know Zeke's going to get a deal we know it certainly dak Prescott it's going to get a deal an antique holding out going to get the deal Melvin Gordon with the Chargers Victor two guys supposed to make five point six million this year is getting fined thirty grand today he can be find an actual regular season game check for missing preseason game so he can lose a lot of money if in fact they do accept the fines and it's a guy in my opinion Victor who is not going to win this so if your him or in his camp at what point do you have to draw that line and say you know what this isn't happening I don't have the leverage I need to get back I think you got to have a real conversation with yourself and your agents and your team and just understand where you are and have a real look in that mirror of where you are as an athlete where you are contractually and then have a meeting with your agent and say Hey what how realistic is it for me to get an extension our our new deal how realistic is it because I'm losing thirty granite bay here that I don't have it and that I'm banking on getting a new contract so that doesn't hurt me as much as it should so I think he just has to have that real conversation with himself and understand where he is individually at at and just figure out what it takes to be you know the the level of caliber player that he is is is next level and but he has to have that real conversation with himself and with his team to to put a date on when he can get back when he wants to get back and when he has the humble seven get back in their playful do you think that day to be now do you think you should be gone back I think you should be going back I think that the way this the the way his hold out is I I just think he doesn't have any leverage I I think the way he's going into this whole dot I think obviously the leverage is what he's done on the football field is compare bulls but in terms of the contract in terms of the way that the charges are looking at him I just don't think he has enough leverage to hold out throughout the season pictures of this Michelle Pennzoil performance I'm Victor the NFL just announced a partnership with Jay Z. and roc nation gonna collaborate certainly on the entertainment portion of the product Superbowl halftime shows some other music ventures but they also mentioned this idea of going out and doing work in the community like that we've seen the NFL starting to commit to a little bit more the social justice issues that come with the leave what did you make of it when you saw this in specifically that portion of it explained with the NFL and someone from the outside like JZ I love the I I think it's the perfect marriage between between two brands that can come together really get this thing right for the NFL and and come to speak the language of what's out there in the music industry in entertainment and nothing is going to take with the biggest thing is like social reform and different things that are kind of outside the scope of the NFL so that they can have someone that understands the culture of what the NFL live they understand the culture of the type of fans and people that watch the NFL and what they want to listen to what they want to hear and what they want to see the NFL doing in the community that makes people sit back and say Hey they're they're really work and they're figuring it out there not just sitting back and letting other people do it they're creating unions in partnerships with organizations and companies like roc nation that understand what it takes and what it and understand exactly how to shake things out and and put people in the right place for success and I think the NFL sees they see that in themselves they need someone to come in and help them with this and I think roc nation and

Boy mowers Gasparilla bowl of last night. Brent you know, what I'm saying still that I like to tell people let me tell you having been around the NFL out because of doing the radio much closer to these teams in these rosters. There's some of the youngsters who you don't know about in college football letter plane, and there are so many seniors who never ever play in the National Football League, they deserve a little bit of a reward.

So follow up question to what you just said d think as everyone else's predicting this is the future of football in the National Football League. I don't think so because you have to have really good quarterback play. I mean, the one thing that was out there would you have Patrick Mahomes Jared Goff, arguably two of the best young quarterbacks in the National Football League one being of course, California, Berkeley graduate or law like myself Cal football in the house. You know, what I'm saying goading their style. You know, you know, the story bowl Ella bowl eligible. That's right. Boy, you notice story you have to have quarterbacks like that to play like that.

There aren't going to be too many teams that have quarterbacks light that with that complement of weapons, and you also have to have really bad defenses or in the field is well, those defense's, although they have really good playmakers on both sides of the ball Houston. You've got Aaron Donald you got Indomesia consume. You got deformed. You've got really good guys. Just don't have enough guys. But no, I don't think this is gonna be the NFL because I don't think everybody has teams that are built this way. But scoring we'll be at a premium, but not like this this was scoring on steroids. Yes. And I thought it was a little excessive for me for my place. I don't for thirteen ten games like the ravens and Steelers used to put out every single time. They played I like the.

If you're going to be a good team. You don't lose by forty one. I mean, can we name? I mean, maybe you go back to that patriot. Team lost you know, early in the lawyer Malloy game. But I think that's just a really bad signing a one of the things I kind of track. His what percent of your games where you did you wear to lewd, if I know more than one scores of a barometer to me and in recent years, you know, New England Seattle been amazing that you know, they they've gone long stretches where that just doesn't happen to them that happened to them. That happened to that Philly team, and I don't write about it. So Alex enough all you were talking. There have been two teams in the history in the modern history of the National Football League who've lost by forty points Anakena game and made is the Super Bowl the two thousand eight cardinals who lost by forty points. The patriots and the nineteen seventy dollars Cowboys.

Being a Cleveland Brown is way more than just playing football. It's about being enough. Not bad. The voice though has to be about southern off his lower like his John doors voices always posing with wings in roses, and he's doing funny televised impersonations of his general manager.
