"It's totally fair to think that that's on the table for the Cleveland Browns. I think it's fair that it's on the table. I do think Baker Mayfield has a bit of a point. So let's just say in whatever the Browns universes, maybe it's real. Maybe it's not. But let's just say that Odell Beckham is a desperately passionate competitors. And everybody in that locker respect him because he loves to play football and desperately wants to when it wanted to help this team. And then the guy ripped his A. C L and people were saying, Well, there's the team better without you. He just ripped it on Sunday. This was a line of questioning on a Wednesday You know, I kind of understand where Baker's coming from here. Now. I think it's a very convenient excuse not to answer the question, and that could be strategic. It could be. Hey, guys, that's insensitive. I'm not ever going to go with their Because now you don't have to address it. You just get to dodge it and you get to make everyone else feel bad. But let's just say this would have happened. Who's the best competitors in the NFL that everybody absolutely adores him? Gosh, the homes is probably a bad example would be a skill position Guy That's also really, really competitive. I mean, Larry Fitzgerald, Okay? Larry Fitzgerald has never won a Super Bowl championship. He has played for years for mediocre Arizona Cardinals team. This year. The Cardinals look like they got life. He rips his A C l and a couple of days later they're asking Kyla Murray. Do you think the offense is better? Because now you don't have to worry about feeding a future Hall of Famer. You know if Kyla Murray says God, that's a little insensitive. I think we would be like, Hey, it's probably true like Larry Fitzgerald, the ultimate responsible, great, mature teammate Class Act. Because it's Odell and because he seems like a petulant child, it kind of feels okay. Toe openly asked basically is a better off that he's dead. You know, not that he's dead, but It does kind of come. Office crash asking the quarterback. Hey, do you think you're better without the guy that just tours A C l It does seem a little crash, doesn't it? It does. But again he tore his A C l he didn't die. You know, I mean, yes. And your point is, is there truth to the possibility that they could be better without him? And there might be That's what makes the question credible. Where Baker's right is. There's no time he's going to say Yes, there is no answer possible where the quarterback of the football team goes. Yeah, you know, Now I get to throw two more targets, and I don't worry about babying this guy. I mean, there's just no way He ever answers it in an affirmative, so What's he supposed to do there? I agree, but it's a typical Baker Mayfield fashion Look, This is the second segment we're doing on a national radio show. He managed to take that question with a reporter assumes he's probably not going to give me an answer, and it becomes a big story because of how he answered it unfair. So the better Okay, so the better play for Baker is Hey, guys, That's a teammate that just went down. I don't really want to discuss that type of thing. Let's talk about Sunday's game. Something like that right or simple. Hey, Odell Beckham Jr is a huge reason why we're five wins is going to be a very difficult task. I think I'm up to it. We're gonna have to find a way next man up mentality. Something like that. Not not. We're going to be better than him. I think that that Baker Mayfield overcompensating because in his mind, he knows how sensitive Odell Beckham is and doesn't want to say anything rolled. Overcomes you go. You're gonna miss me. Yeah, and have to deal with that heavy. Well, that is true. There's been a narrative that the Browns have tried to spin about how great Odell Beckham is in the locker room and how passionate he is and how that just exudes out of him. And this is part of it. I think you're right. I think they're all worried that if the Browns are actually better off without Odell, they can't admit it because it's gonna drive Odell Beckham like after the game. Kevin Stefanski did act as though they had lost the greatest soldier the war has ever seen. I mean, It's like everybody is mourning the loss of Odell. So I think you're right. They are overcompensating. And that's where this becomes a news story, right but insensitive, Diego called insensitive mentor CCL guys do it every year. Yeah, I think it's just Yes, that's it. That's a little overboard. It is a little insensitive, though, to ever suggest that without a player, are you better? You know, you think you're better off without that player because he's injured now? Standing by with our headlines, a kind, sir, and he is also in costume. He's got a big top hat on. He's wearing a sign or something around his neck. It is amazing has got stars on the hat. He's got a magician's wand and a D a show logo hanging around his Now that's a great costume. I'm I'm now tossing to the great Andrew Voguish baby. Good morning. Good morning. I am continuing my my trend. I have been Pete and I have been you. And this year I am the Wizard All Andrew Kaplan O doesn't have a shirt on the Kaplan would wear Plus the Wizard hat, My little wand and my little watch. Ta logo here on my neck. Wow! Now, Bo Bish. Three years ago was or two years ago. Was Pete the body? Is that right? Yes. And how did you dress up his Pete? The body? I had Ah, met Hoody. I had jeans on and dress shoes, which is a very Pete were drove. And I had a clipboard with schedules on it. Because at that point, Pete was our very esteemed schedule. Make outdated costume. I also had also did have a pillow with me. To enhance the gun. I left that part out as though there's a game time decision, But I did have that as well. That was how I was Okay, So that was two years ago Last year, you went as May And how did you dress up is made I combined two of your Syracuse stories right ahead. Goggles on and a phone was one of your you had a story that I I guess I got wrong factually about trying to pick up girls with an old school phone and goggles and a bar in Syracuse. It was based off of that. Yes, there was a story that my friend pens joined on the PGP one time and told where I went out to the bars one time in college, and I probably had one too many pregame cocktails, and I brought out my Cordless phone. It was my Cordless, not a cell phone. None of us had cell phone to the time. And I brought it out. And as a conversation starter, I would say, Hey, this is for you, and I would hand it to people know what's best for chicks was re dudes in general, too. And I would just laugh because they would pick it up like hello, thinking that somehow they had gotten a phone call on my Cordless phone. That was about seven blocks away. So I just got to kick out of that You kind of use that and spun that into your costume, which was hysterical. You also gonna wear oversized teeth with either didn't fit. They wouldn't stay in your mouth, right? Yeah, There was. It was an issue finding like non vampire like zombie teeth, too. I couldn't just find big, like white dentures. So I just I didn't feel comfortable with the teeth angle I was going for Watch The Wizard of Watch. DEA is so good. You've got a wizard hat. And a magician's wand and you're wearing the watch D a logo on your chest. More as this is a winner right here by Bogue's. This is arguably Mike. The best costume I've liked on the show in the last three years outside of you being Cam Newton, D A. I love this by boat. I love it. The hat makes it everything about it is also the watch the logo right away. When I saw the Wizard had a click I knew and what I have to think about something. It's a winner for me. If you would wear the Kaplan glasses that might even put it over the top..
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.
Fresh update on "odell" discussed on KRLD News, Weather and Traffic
"Candy? Or have you already started? I have. I did very, very some sour patch kids and Swedish fish out of my back up trick or treating bag last night, So I have begun my candy. Ah, you know stuff if you will, and I'm going to go upstairs, probably around seven AM and dip in a little more. Tell me about since you live in a neighborhood. What is the situation for covert Halloween? What are you planning for What you preparing for in terms of trick or treating, So there seems to be. I've been reading some community board pages. On Ah, Long Island for awaiting more research that you've done for the show. You're actually no doubt no doubt. So there seems to be a thing called a purple pumpkin. If you put a purple pumpkin outside, it means it's okay to trick or treat here. Now who's going to know that there was going to know that we're gonna purple pumpkin, You have to paint the pumpkin purple. There are also people with signs saying, Ah, you no have no fear, trick or treat here. You know, there's a lot of people have kind of made it known. I'm kind of going on the basis of we've decorated outside for Halloween. Come on in, and I will also leave basically my screen door open. So like my door will be shut you could see into the house is kind of Ah, welcoming message. So it just kind of got you going with the cherry pick house houses and get a feel for the outside, you know, kind of like reading a defense. And are you going to throw the candy at the kid from 6? Ft. I will. I will answer the door with mask on Andi, I will basically just hold. I'll go. But you hold out the arm of the bucket. I still am one for I can't trust kids. If I put a bucket on my kid, you'll be going to trick or treat. It's that's a problem. I want to take care of the kids, but you can't trust the kids. So I think kids have had a rough year. Katie Linendoll last year tipped me off this this year. I am going full size candy D a. I am handing out full size candy. Is that right? I am. Now that is very generous of you. I figure look, kids might get shafted by way more houses this year that won't that won't hand out candy. They've had a tough year. Whether it be not going to school friends, distancing not seeing them. What's cancelled everything. If the kids confined a little solace in one house for Halloween, I wanted to be my house so full size peanut butter cups and Hershey bars and Twix and everything Come on in. Hard candy. I like the idea of kid's having a tough year. It's kind of like, Yeah, Vikings just had a tough season with a tough situation for for kids. 2020 just tough season for the kids did itself here for everybody. But kids don't fully understand the trick or treating. So look forward to you. So you know if my full size candy bar makes up for two houses that are handing out candy, that's the way I'm going to approach it Good for you. But how many King size did you buy so that Daniel is very worried because last year were hammered for Halloween? I have a combination of 90 full sized bars, and the way I look at it is When you hand out the small I'm usually hand out to three bags at a pop. I'm thinking 90 is probably a fair number. But as I mentioned, I got that back up bag of smaller candy with the Swedish fish and sour patch kids. So if things get dicey later, I still have some more candy to tap into. And frankly, all have candy bits of interesting to talk about this. We'll get to Baker Mayfield coming up here momentarily sports later. I grew up. In the woods. My house that I grew up was in the woods and so our trick or treating nobody ever came to the door ever Wait a long driveway nobody ever ever ever came to the door, which I didn't care about because I was out trick or treating. But my parents always said we would come home for trick or treating. And my dad if he stayed back, or my mom stay back would say Yeah, Nobody came. So we would leave a bag of candy at the foot of the driveway. So that's where somebody and occasionally there'd be a few missing but mostly 85 to 90% of our candy was not taken. Now. I always said Boy, I can't wait to hand out candy when I buy my own house and what ends up happening? What goes around comes around. I end up buying a house that has a long driveway in the middle of the woods that nobody's gonna end up coming, Tio. So I won't even have that experience that you're talking about, more as a kind of jealous because I would've done the same thing. I would want the King to be the King size house. But the people we bought the house from had been here 30 years there. He even said. So. What do you think about trick or treating their like? Don't bother. Nobody ever comes. Oh, so maybe I leave something at the bottom of the driveway. I suppose we'll see. Maybe I'll buy a few candy bars and leave down there, but I think it's You know what it's like. Even when I tried to break free. The same thing happened to me. Your driveway is basically the size of half of my street where you could get to about 12 houses. So you're climbing up your driveway even get Theodore would be a mess. You'd have to put it at the end. Here's the only fear the D n. I brought this up with Katie last year. Maybe we'll get her thoughts on this. I'm doing this this year's part of pandemic, but, well, rumor spread around town for next year's Halloween and then if I don't put out King size next year, my getting eggs there is no doubt you are setting yourself up for a lifetime of stress by being the king sized guy. We're going to be the King size house. You've got to commit for life. Was the moment you go from King size two regular size or bite size. You are toast. So you're putting the pressure on you. But you know what? That helps elevate to greatness. You know, Michael Jordan never Accepted anything less than being the best player in the N B. A, which which forced him to have to be. It wasn't like, Oh, this year. I'm way better than everybody. But next year Clyde directly is going to be better. So you've just got to be best. For the rest of your life. That's a lot of pressure. But I always say Mork King size in my house, the better because if there's any left over, that's what Daddy wants. That's right. And if there's anything left over after that, Brad Heller will be coming over sometime on Monday or Tuesday to eat the rest of your candy. That is your coordinator. Let's play for you. Baker Mayfield's audio from yesterday as one of the One of story lines that's been baited about is that Will the Browns offense actually be better? Without Odell Beckham Jr. Who's out for the season? A C L tear because perhaps they don't have to force feed O'Dell to keep him happy. Here is what Baker Mayfield said. Well, one I think it's just completely insensitive to a guy that just towards a seal, So I'm not even gonna comment on it. You never want to lose guys, and that's that's why I'm leaving. So is it insensitive to suggest to Baker Mayfield that the offense could be better without Odell Beckham or as pretty stand on this? Yes, I think it's fair. Because we see this all the time with not maybe not all the time. But the idea that there's a star player target receiver that needs the ball needs. The ball needs the ball. The moment is out of the offense. The quarterback can exhale a little bit, not worry about forcing him the ball and overseeing the quarterback flourishes. It's totally fair to think that that's on the table for the Cleveland Browns. I think it's fair that it's on the table. I do think Baker Mayfield has a bit of a point. So let's just say in whatever the Browns universities, maybe it's real. Maybe it's not. But let's just say that Odell Beckham is a desperately passionate competitors. And that everybody in that locker respect him because he loves to play football and desperately wants to when it wanted to help this team. And and the guy ripped his A. C L and people were saying, Well, there's the team better without you. He just ripped it on Sunday. This was a line of questioning on a Wednesday You know, I kind of understand where Baker's coming from here. Now. I think it's a very convenient excuse not to answer the question, and that could be strategic. It could be. Hey, guys, that's insensitive. I'm not ever going to go with their Because now you don't have to address it. You just get to dodge it and you get to make everyone else feel bad. But let's just say this would have happened. Who's the best competitors in the NFL that everybody absolutely adores him?.
Breaking Down the Quarters and Semis for the KR Contenders Playoffs
"Let's dive into our predictions for I guess we'll do predictions and then matches them predictions and matches will go in order here. So first match. We both got right. Yep Yep whoop do. We knew that team B M was not up to the task against Wgn Phoenix, and that's what happened. W just think took the three one against them I. Actually yet the three one which is actually kind of surprising because. Outside of an absolute banger that will talk about a little bit later this was the only other one that didn't go three Oh. Team. VM being able to squeak out that one map made it interesting for all of seven minutes and then. wgn Phoenix was like Nah. We're We're. Shutting you down. Yep and that one map was Lee. Shang where we saw Sung Chan gets some key hacks onto as tax on the. Road at least twice I think. You kinda tried his best to. Negate as tech but as we talk about here in the next couple of matches. Stack is shown to be really solid like you had like I think one match that we watched last week or two weeks ago where I felt when it was from. But like there was some issues dying on Bussan but beyond that, especially in these playoffs matches really leveled up. So that team tried their best to try to counter him and they did on the first map but beyond that w kind of took off and really the only other thing that I noticed outside of that. They were playing real chaotic, not super super structured. Just looked discombobulated, and then you get over to a new business and protect literally holds onto his grab for like foil. Yes and it's like there was there was a bunch of times where he could have used it. Either defensively to save some of his teammates and extend the team fight or initiate with an potentially win team fight and Nope, he just sat on it and then when he did use it, he threw it to lake. Horizon Lunar Colony I think because it just went nowhere got nothing and then they just got absolutely destroyed. Yup Listen to Wayne Gretzky protect you miss one hundred percent of the grabs you don't take so. You just gotTa. Do It man you just got? To. It's also a Hawker reference or an office reference depending on what what realm of the world you're in. The other thing too is like every minute that you're not using a graph building. You're not building graph and like if you hold a grab for like three minutes, you could've used a grab that it was like okay and then had another grab by basically the same time So. Yeah it's it's tough and like if you don't have the opportunity to use a grab at all because they're diva is constantly all over you and you don't have the counterplay or they're playing way to spread, then you probably should go on something else. That's better. Pick anyways and use the grab throwaway goldfish swimming dvr, go switch Sigmar anything else. There there's been a lot of issues that we're seeing a lot of the losing teams. They're. They're just like kind of shooting themselves in the foot with like playing what they should be. On the other side man wgn. Phoenix Lake after watching this match. I got really high on this tangle. Especially, ABC Z. Bag has been. Okay. But Gables specially was. Studer Pitt where you saw pack jump up, get damage onto. The Echo over the ACA was even. On. Haven, yeah then. He drops down back behind the cover again, and then you saw gable see right behind him come up boost up finish off the damage and then go back and then Win So comes up to resum they both dive a again and kill him as well. They open it up with two free kills and literally just roll beyond that. So I think that like one of the things especially it's been the tank line coordination for this team. In another team, we'll talk about later. Like it really sets these teams up apart like with the DP s with the one diver as well with the tanks in the one dive deep. Yes as well like. If, you have three people hive minded together you you will find success in grin contenders. And then another name on wgn that you're going to hear. US Talk. A lot absolute tyrant about is ace. When ace is on? The Sambre. Do builds EMP's insanely quick. But then on a newbies, they push team B.. M. Back to the spawn. And then they're like, you know what we got like a minute and a half left we're just going to go sit in front of the spun. And s just sits behind him and mainly heck's the supports like one clip supports drops an EMP. Like gets half of the team just absolutely bullying the back line of Team B, m on a newness and. Team B. M. had no response to ACE's play when he was running the sombre. and. It's super unfortunate that like he's only played this one pick at least what I've seen so far Inoke s on the hog. So good is unmatched in cream contenders I think I, think he might. Only, backed by MAG. But we'll see about that. Hit like he just every time like he forces other people to not play against him because he will just out a out mechanics them out strategy them and like just knows how to play better gets incredible. Pickoffs especially on Havana you saw him on the hog and Gable soon, the sigma they full hold team b. m., there as well So, like this tank line. Alternating CPAC and iino cast depending on whether or not. They're gonNA play the Winston saw shrine oranges run the Road Hog quite often because I think this was still on the playoff patch or like the wwl. Finals Patch. It'll. It's as strong three players on that team like they. Really. Really benefited from there, strong line here and gables the again like we talked about his diva being incredible signals also incredible as well during the scrappy last minute fights where there was a chance that team b. m. was going to be able to. Squeak out the first point actually cap it. he just stayed alive sustained had some good old good rocks Just good play and I think got like a couple of kills here there's also. You're going to start seeing a couple of these names come up next week when we talk not only about Plants and stuff like that but also on recommended. Pickups for teams in the off season because. Couple of teams might be going full Korean here and. There's a lot of new blood that's rear and to get some Odell time in. So I'm excited to see that I actually can't wait to talk about that team that I think is going full Korean 'cause. It's GONNA be interesting to try to put together. A bunch of players out of Korean contenders to slot into that team or and see how close we can get to actually hitting the. the mark on how many people get pulled from creon contenders.

First Time shooters can go to drink a favor dot com. Cleveland browns generate terminals, January. Fourteenth turnovers deep. It's being put the yards per game. At all, you want they have set them up. Since attach and they can run the ball. Those great ingredients you know getting the ball good field position and. Running foot. This guy's actually quarterback these proven e complain he bites. Oklahoma. Yet the system last year he's got a different this year. Explain under center one I've seen them asked. His employed great competitor and what I love is being on the line late. It brings up best. And that was Jon Gruden head coach of the readers talking about this week match up against the Cleveland Browns and defense has been in the hot seat this week, and that's something that zigging I also continue talking about when we looked at this metric. When you look ahead to the Cleveland browns pretty hot right now on their offense even if they're gonna Miss Odell Beckham Junior in this coming game Austin Hooper's probably out he's doubtful as of right now, we're speaking here on a Tuesday night so I don't want to. You hear this on on Wednesday afternoon and say, Hey, they just upgraded. But you know we're talking here on a Tuesday night but. They're going to have to bring in guys guys enough to step up on the offense for the browns but I mean. That's kind of you know in looking at the raiders defense a little bit fortuitous for them that they're not going to be facing somebody as explosive as Odell Beckham junior because even who doesn't matter I think who you plug into that wide receiver spot, they're going to size up to odal Beckham but. How do you see this game playing out from defensive standpoint what the raiders may need to do to step up against the browns and a hot Baker Mayfield right now. Well, I think they're gonNA have to obviously get into his grill because when he has time to throw which he did last week against Cincinnati he started out slow he missed the first five attempts but then you know as ironic unfortunately for ob Jay, that he tore his acl but then after that Heidi he pleaded twenty two of his next twenty three passes. The Guy couldn't miss in fact the one incompletion was was a was the spike. You know I think it was the stopped clock. So that's how hot that he was had a good rapport with Jarvis Landry. Who by the way today was on I guess Cleveland Radio and he was trying to dispel the myth that the browns may actually be a better offense without oh bj although the numbers might tell you otherwise because it seemed as though when Beckham went out last week, they started to find more that rhythm obviously with Jarvis Landry Guy You're going to be watching to Rashard Higgins. What he had six grabs last week they can spread the ball Kareem Hunt can come out of the backfield. So there's a lot of diversity there You will see if he's still ailing a little bit from those ribs. So you wonder if the raiders may you know when they try to get to them not intentionally hurt him but you know like, Hey, we know that you're a ribs are one hundred percent here so. Did. They start going at that particular direction, but that's the key. They gotta get to him disrupt his rhythm early and then you know try to make them play the ground game as much as possible. But I believe there may be a wet track there in Cleveland on Sunday is supposed to have rain. So if that's the case you may wind up seeing more of a steady diet of the running attack than anything, but again, from Tuesday to Sunday weather can change. And either way on that the raiders are definitely going to have to bring the pressure like you said, and that's something that we were just talking about in the beginning here the they've been struggling with and. When you look at this game, it's you know going to get easier. I, think for the raiders down the stretch here. But this game is key and then trying to rebound off the loss that they just had just last week. So when you start thinking about that and if the defense can't step up how much are you putting? Paul Guenther the Raiders Defensive Coordinator in the hot seat at this point. it's kind of hard to say. Again because this is a lot of new personnel I mean crosby's been very solid with the four sacks. And a one guy that they're disappointed in is littleton. I know they brought him in from the rams in the off season has really provided much bang for the free agent dollars. So I'm sure that they're going to be looking at that going forward.

I don't know what's going on there with with them in the core back, position the passing I just don't know, I? Yeah. I haven't watched a lot of them but I'm a big cousins fan of always since we did as first game remember. Memories first game was watched Washington came up to play. The browns and united they game on that we did do that game and he was exceptional and he had a great. Member seeing him in person was yeah. He was really something. He did some things in that game that were pretty unusual and he won me over I just felt like you had chance to be really good so. There's something going on and like you said, it's never just the quarterback situations. It's usually a lot of other things going on. So yeah, we'll see. Yeah Raiders Seth three and three. Coming off the loss now going to take on the brownies in. CLEVELAND. That's going to be a tough trip and it's getting. It's going to be tough on both sides.

OBJ: 'The blond is back' and new attitude, too
"Newton Noto Beckham Jr had their own red table talk early on Tuesday. No Jada Pinkett Noble Smith. But that doesn't mean that both of these two were not going to say something that got people's attention. They both used the word humble but coining the context of tired of being humble. Cam Newton said that about replacing Tom Brady, the elephant in the room with the doing the Patriots and Noto Beckham Jr soak office hat and said the blonde is back and said he is tired of being humble. He is tired of playing that game. I don't know if we're going to Jada Pinkett joining them at any time soon, But Cam knew no Dahlbeck. Um do you have there red table talk, and it got plenty of attention, Especially way they use the word humble and the way they wanted to use it being tied of being that way to satisfy others. When it comes to playing football. I don't know if you can hear my eyes rolling in the back of my head right now, But when I saw that first I'm not going to be nice anymore. I saw that I thought was that broke version of LeBron's thing with a shop like that's what I saw, if if anybody wants to do Parody of this, with Victor Cruz leading the conversation, and you've got Odell Beckham looking smug, and it's weird jacket he's wearing Todd Gurley looking like he doesn't know what's going on one side of the table in Cannes, sitting with a cigar in these in these glasses of wine all over the table in the decanter, I mean, It was well done. I'll give him that Odo back him and his production company put this thing together. It was very well. I will say it was great to hear them. Talk about black lives matter Movement and what Corona virus That's very honest things to say about Corona virus and kind of the fear that a lot of people have of playing the season. The athletes at the center of this They are the product. They're the ones who make owners millions and billions of dollars every year yet I think that we missed the mark. Sometimes these were not necessarily considering all the health and safety protocols. Ah, when it comes to them, But so that's the stuff that I actually could get down with. But when the word humble was thrown around, I felt like you know, I needed Kendrick Lamar to come in and just kind of like, walk that back a little bit, because when you talk about the blonde is back and this that and the other thing with Odell Beckham have we not been hearing some version of the same thing for the last 3 to 4 years, Freddie Even before he went to Cleveland. I mean, it's every single season is new Year new Me New Year new Me But silence the haters. Got a You know, everybody wants to be labeled. We want to label something in society because we don't know what it is. And I'm tired of being labeled. Oh, my goodness. I'm tired of hearing this is every single year Put up or shut up, bro. I can't handle it anymore. By the corner. Cronin, Finn Fitzsimmons of Freddie Coleman on Friday and Fitzsimmons and ESPN radio. I said it's for the longest time and every time he does or says something like this without a Beckham Jr It further further confirms my suspicions. He still wants to be in New York. He doesn't want to be in Cleveland. Yeah, he'll say all the right things about the organization. But if he had his way, he still be a New York giant playing in the biggest city in the world when it comes to New York because his personality fits more in New York than it does in Cleveland. He doesn't realize that if he just goes out there because to me, he has way too much talent. So have that kind of mouth promising and making those false promises would come without backup Jr. I'm with you. I don't want to hear about humility I don't want to hear about the blind is back in. All of the nonsense stopped talking about it Be about it because you had that kind of ability and talent. But I still wonder I don't want any more. He confirms it every time Courtney Every time he opens his mouth. It tells me each and every time That he still wants to be in the biggest city in the world. Whether the New York Giants or in New York jet, Cleveland does not fit the personality to me in the mind of Odo Beckham Jr so and you're putting that out there. To me. It seems like he's laying the groundwork that if eyeball out in Cleveland, I want to go somewhere else where I believe my personality is going to fit that city and clear as a great sports city. Put it back on. Gina's realized that if he bawls out in Cleveland and leads into the playoffs and end of a deep run in the play offs, he could go anywhere representing him in a Cleveland Browns, but because he doesn't leave his personality Is suited for Cleveland. He keeps putting stuff out there time and time again to let everybody know I'm a celebrity, and I'm too much of a celebrity for the city that I'm playing it now because I did not want to be traded away from the city where I started my NFL career in the first place, and it's like we've seen the story play out. I said again and again, I mean, think about some of the distractions and think about what happened this offseason with him handing out cash Tol issue players of the national championship and You know, slapping the police officer on the Mac side in Superdome, and you know all of these things. It's like he was quiet for a little bit. And there were some trade rumors before that. I mean, like it or not, there was talks behind the scenes about him trying to get out of Cleveland. I have Pete. You know, sources that I've spoken with people close the situation. I know that it's been debunked allegedly at this point, but at one point that was actually in the works being talked about. It didn't just come out of thin air, so I mean I understand where he's at right now in wanting to wipe the sleep this late, clean because, you know, by his standards, you know he didn't you know, he still was 1000 yard receiving season last year, but he wasn't where he wanted to be. I think that he had different expectations for what his first year Cleveland could have looked like. But you know, the blonde is back. Does that mean that the celebrity and all of the distractions come with it to be as you'll remember? You know that last season in New York in 2018 there were a lot of distractions. There was an interview with Little Wayne where he was talking about his quarterback and essentially throwing him under the bus that created a lot of distractions in the locker room. So I mean, is that coming with it? If you're talking about the blonde is back, because, sadly, we know that this is one of the most talented wide receivers to ever play the game. But beyond that, you know, the blonde has kind of been the demise for him.
Teyana Parties Despite Lockdown
"The. Lockdown is over or at least apparently, it is for a lot of famous people for example, Cardi B. and offset just hit up Tiana. Taylor's packed album release party, which by the way offered, has met suits upon arrival, but not much social distancing. Going on here one of your guys. This thoughts on this not a lot of mass happening. I think less than half of the party had masks on, but never had. Done so in the invite to the to the event. It says like we will provide mass and has met suits look I love Yana think you know the album is going to be amazing, but I do feel like this party was kind of irresponsible especially. She just announced that she's pregnant. And there were kids there. It just seems like so many people in one place. And the lockdown isn't lifted yet. It just seems a little irresponsible to me. Yeah! I also think that if you wearing the has met suit half open so that we could see your cleavage or sculpted chess is like riding a bicycle holding your helmet under your arm. It's just it does nothing. Cardiac. Odell Beckham was there were a ton of people there and I did it like people are itching to get outside. There have been some things that have been lifted, so you wanted to get out there and feel normal again and I'm I'm sure that she's so proud of this album, but I think like you know when you're newly pregnant and being around all of these people I just don't understand the logic with this lean awake. was there like every Winnie Harlow like? I'm so confused on this money. Make you a new. The album is called the album which is short for the album that gave everybody respiratory disease, so make sure. Chance congratulations on download the album, but I'm not going to parties like house parties. That's real aggressive. A great guys pay attention

Can the Dutch save the world from the danger of rising sea levels?
"The Netherlands is the best protect data in the world with centuries of experience in holding back the floodwaters as climate change causes sea levels to rise can touch expertise. Help Save the world cities that are most at risk or think so bad that they will struggle to even save themselves themselves. Simon Cooper has looked into this question and he's with me now to discuss what he discovered. Hi Simon Esta so about a third of the Netherlands. ORLANDS is below sea level including the capital Amsterdam. You grew up in Leiden that also below sea level and were you aware of the risk of flooding. When you're a child ounce on facial redness blow sea level? I must say I never checked during my childhood. There's also a lot of land. That's not below sea level but susceptible to river flooding. WHO's three great rivers above the Rhine and in the Netherlands on my Johnny's to the sea? So you'll always closer river all see. I mean I grew up in Leiden as as you say. Which is I? Don't know about five miles from the same and it's reclaimed. Glands that Western Netherlands is where most of the population lives. So you know very large. Pasta appellation are most of the economy is they're threatened by the see below sea level and the funny thing is that because the Dutch of being so good since the disastrous Austral slaughtered nineteen fifty. Three of keeping the. I'm ribs it pay you better. Think about it in your daily life. I mean they're canals and you got fishing and did you learn to swim as soon as you can. Because it's unsafe to live in the Netherlands. Not being able to swim but generally you just don't think about the threat of flooding the Wolf's experts. I spoke to. This story complained that the population has always complacent. They assume the Netherlands would always be safe from the walls have given the geographical factors. That play is it the case. That's dot. History is littered with flooding disasters up to a certain point. I think you mentioned the last very serious floods Richard in the nineteen fifties. Yeah I mean. The Dutch spent centuries trying to deal with the wolves so plenty of the ELDA. The Roman author was stationed. There I think is a tribune in the first century idea and he he says look at being flooded all the time like wall miserable limbs by the fire of mud and it's just terrible and for centuries being flooded and people drowning was possibly cost of living in that area so they reclaim line from the seat. I built dikes. They did the best to maintain the bikes. It didn't always go well so for example. twenty-one thousands thousands of people were killed in floods maintaining the dykes is always sort of what history is being about. It wasn't always done well. So nineteen fifty three is the walls showed literally you get these disastrous floods kill about eighteen hundred people know. Madeleine's another three hundred dollars. Nason England something there. I think the English would largely forgotten by the doctor having forgotten that so often the fifty three flood the government says right never again and they set up a commission. The Commission says you have to build incredibly expensive defenses and it's going to take decades and cost in tax in this country that has been left low by the wall which is ready poll with people emigrating to the United States Australia and the DOT com says yes. We'll just do it because we have this again. One of the things you write about in the Steve Dunn for fifty we can magazine is something something called the Paul. D'Amato can you just tell us a little bit about what that is. Yes Oh upholder is a piece of reclaimed linemates flatlined and when you take a train through the Netherlands you see everywhere. He's very flat fields often. I see some cows grazing next to the cow will be a massive office block. Is the Docs use every inch of space in the small country and canals to carry off the water and the thing about the pulled. Ramon del as they reclaimed this line but the line was incredibly vulnerable because is one flood and everybody drown us so each district had to maintain its own dykes and in the Netherlands centuries yet terrible religious disputes and people killing each each other promising Catholic woes from fifteen sixty eight and so there was always political division but in the end it didn't really mice what religion you. You had some tightening talk so they created the system of negotiation compromise. You know the local weather being elected and sitting in committees about what's going on with our dyke and so it creates this very politics that exists today of compromise in pragmatism. You had to set the religious stuff and the audiology one side in the end. You just tattoo wet together to survive and mostly things were managed very well so today politics. I mean I think of it as a one party system you have have different policies but that was in coalition with each other and one full more another and so whether or the sensor ride. BVD All green left. All the centre-left peeve on the you're always having to negotiate and deal with each other in a pragmatic way and the Dutch coal that pulled him Odell and the golden so pulling means to sit down and hammer out a compromise compromise that nobody is going to get excited about it. I mean it just fearless. Though as we're seeing sea levels rise that kind of model of cooperation is going to be more and more needed around the world but I mean the other thing overseas money. Do we know roughly how much the Dutch spend each year on flood defences well money. I mean the surprise me. When I was researching the story money in a way is the easy bit I mean? The doctor saves money by spreading their spending. On dykes over seven hundred years. He is but nowadays they spend about a billion euros year on flood defences which given the most of the country's susceptible to floods is where you know bad it's commit more than north point one percents of GDP so the average person just really doesn't exit and obviously doing it from scratch like New Orleans. Now I mean New Orleans which is sort of similar bliss situations of the Netherlands has spent fifteen billion or US suspect fifteen billion levies etcetera. Protecting New Elaine. Since two thousand and five but if that's the cost of the survival of a place is actually not that bad so wealthy countries can do this. The biggest problem is that they don't have pulled a modell they don't have this. Pragmatic take compromise long-term spending which the Dutch you spend on dykes even when there's no crisis even when you haven't been flooded in decades you just do it all the time we know in the US. For example Donald it is just a big problem with spending any infrastructure so they weren't even on potentially life-saving infrastructure. Like dykes levees. So you have to think long term which is the the problem in many societies whereas spending don ends political rhythm so the new government the new president will spend something in the next one more of us. The ducks don't do that. Doesn't Marie Masters and government money got spent and the other thing is that you have to have a national program. You can't say will you happen to live in the two square gweat miles. That's most susceptible to flooding. So you must find the couple of billion it will take you to protect yourself against the wall Cher. No this is a national thing so we have have a national plan and national taxes to raise the money for wo suspending. Even can be a bit more if you live in. wosa threatened district broadly the whole population pays and the other thing. Is that good defenses ready. What when it's a national strategy because if you build a dike or Levee to protect your factory or your neighborhood ed or your apartment building and you see that in Miami where some buildings after on seawall then you're actually endangering the neighbors because the voices will hit your seawall? I'm be diverted to the neighbors so you can't have some people protecting themselves and others not which is very common along the US coasts. The ducks done do that. The whole whole country is protected so I came away thinking countries like the. US can folded countries like Bangladesh. Perhaps not but they don't have the long term they don't don't have the culture of negotiation and compromise and they don't have the National Corporation that you need to do this successfully. Some of these places have been turning to the Dutch asking asking for advice. Is that right. Yeah so I went to the Moslems kidding which is the big storm surge barrier that protects the rouse Ma'am Haba one Dutch official described it smears the front door of the Netherlands so is always waiting to close if the waters rise. Three macy's they haven't since it was completed twenty three years ago so so a lot of foreign visitors come to the Muslim caring because more and more cities around the world thinking of building storm surge. Barrett's the Italians are thinking about it. Venice has some protection protection. Maybe not enough George. Bush was recent visit. He's the Texas Land Commissioner. I think he's the nephew of George. W and George. Bush is trying to think of ways to protect Houston and ironically it's oil refineries from the rising waters which caused caused by the carbon emissions made by those are refineries arrays and so they come to the Netherlands. Look at these models of what the Dutch do and see if they could work in their own countries and to some degree the model model is the easy bit. The infrastructure is the easy but you can't build storm surge barrier but you have to keep monitoring dotting its spending on maintaining it and also so given the wolves are rising checking every couple of years. How long will my barrier last? Are we going to need to build a whole new on. We're GONNA need to build Out Bigger because if you build it for say a meter of rising waters it might not be able to save the water rises one and a half nieces and apart from the Moslem carrying this other flood defence strategy being used by the Dutch. Yeah I mean it's a whole system of dikes. If you woke woke along the seacoast you don't see the waterfront properties that you see in American real estate ads. Where you'll deck overlooks the ocean? And The Netherlands. Nobody lives CBS on the beach. You have the beach and then you have the Junes. which are these man made hills of signed that stopped the C- coming in and you can only live behind the junes? Then you have these sluices which can open or close depending so the real Saddam Hall. The Muslim king is open because as I was standing by the catering watching ships coming in and out on the way to Britain and elsewhere and is able to close. It's like a door that opened it's able to close it's the Walsh's rise so it's a very flexible and complex system the difference in every place in the country but that

Analytics in the NFL
"Going to talk about these Brown the whole topic of analytics because Mike when you think of mate Alexi often think about major league baseball. And you know Bill James's cyber metric revolution. Should Billy Bean moneyball the book movie all the rest of it and wanted Billy Bean's main guys was Paul D Badescu. CUPID ESTA LA. Believe in the as he goes the mets eventually. Now he's with the Cleveland Browns. Tired and twice sixteen says famously. I don't know too much NFL. But I've got all this information all this analytics we'll make things work also infamous said he didn't think Carson Wentz was the top twenty quarterback now now as we look at your column today. Athletic is always. You can subscribe the athletic read. All Mike's work there the war between analytics and football people is pointless. The real challenge is finding someone who can properly understanding process all the data and then make the right decisions and how to deploy and I'm not sure. The browns have solved that problem yet. They hire Kevin Stansky is their head coach. Why why are you skeptical at? They've solved it. You know I like Kevin and I and I don't mean to be critical Kevin. But I think Kevin's a really smart guy. And I think Kevin's obviously you know well. Educated aided came through the coaching ranks. The right way started on the ground floor worked his way up. I just think it's going to be a real challenging job for him because he's got to manage a lot of personalities in that locker room and deep. Pesto said at the press conference that they were looking for a leader. And you know. And I think that Kevin's probably more of a guy who's low key. Quiet it you know has a shared vision with everybody and that doesn't mean he's not qualified. That just means to me I think the vision of what the browns think they need. And what what. I see the browns needing in terms of somebody to come in and be able to handle Odell Beckham because look like Odell Beckham. The little like Michael Jackson Right. I mean he's is not compliant right he will show up on time. He'll do what he has to do right but the one thing he will do is he will create people following him he will create and so what he doesn't come to. Ot Days where he doesn't want to do things or he wants to go out. Color outside the lines dominic does he. Will you know get the people follow him. And who's going to challenge him to do that. Who's going to challenge him to do that? You know and I thought it was funny. Ad When you know they asked Stefanski Gi you know what did Mayfield think of you like. I'm not really worried. Would Baker Mayfield thinks of me. I'm worried about what I think. Baker Mayfield Shinto like I don't have to make Baker Mayfield Happy Baker Mayfield to make me happy. And I think you can look at all these analytical numbers and it's great but at some point football's a game a leadership. Football's the game of toughness. Football's a game paddle. Football's a game of conditioning. Football's a game of making people do things they really don't WanNa do right. You need intelligence. You need all those things but you need grit. You need some of that and I just think that the way they handle this they obviously got somebody who's more collaborative than dictatorship and. That's what they wanted on it. I'm not sure that's what they needed. As you mentioned the com- analytics is just another word for information. And when you worked for Bill Belichick or walls work with them. You know you were feeding them. Information to quote gridiron genius. The fact you Mike Holmgren were good friends. He called you scooper because you were so tune in and what was going on around the NFL. Hiring coaches like homeroom is a convoluted path to building a staff. It required Walsh to spend lots of time and energy coaching his coaches. That was why he hired guys. Who are intelligent before there? Anything else guys. Were not typical products. The football industry his special teams coach. Fred von happen may still be the only coach in NFL history who read Sylvia plath every day before heading out to the practice field. Maybe the violence of her poetry help to prepare him for the carnage of kickoff coverage. That's a great quote but just to further the point about Walsham ballot check and how they assemble their staffs. Yeah I mean look. Nobody was more cerebral lim bill right but he's a real tough guy. Nobody's more cerebral than Bella check. And he's a tough guy and Fred. Von Was a tough guy you know and he'd read Sylvia Plath and he was was excluding the part that she put her head in an oven and he literally read that every single day it was unbelievable and his vocabulary was incredible vocabulary. Sorry but they had a sense of toughness and I think that parcells is the same way. parcells wants to hire guys from the Military Academy. He wants smart people right. Everybody wants smart people. They want smart people but they also want smart people that are going to be branded and do what they wanna do. And demand from the players not collaborate from the players and I think that this analytical nonsense is truly we're all in the information business so all the information is really important in my belief is that we're missing in the point when somebody puts on and says well there in eleven personnel. And they're doing this and that like do you understand what the eleven is and what they're really trying to accomplish. I mean Tevin Coleman was the running back that was the main back this week because Kyle Shanahan wanted a running back. Who's GonNa Threaten Mike Zimmer in the backfield because Mike Zimmer was gonNA play three linebackers now once that happened that according to the chart? That's twenty-one toward the analytic he's in twenty one personnel but he's really not because he's got Coleman in the game he's only in twenty anyone with Coleman because he's got three linebackers so how do you differentiate that you know. How do you break down the information you know? There's so many times I've been in meeting with Bela check. I'll be watching tape. And I made a comment. He said well the only reason they're doing that is because they're doing up about anyone into that you know like oh I got it now I got you just taught me something right. Like that's the game

"odell" Discussed on You're Wrong... And Here's Why
"Where with abandon Greg? We are back and I want to talk talk a little bit about the hottest hot news. The hottest of hot takes in the NFL right now. Odell Beckham in this weird situation with the Cleveland browns. I I'm GonNa tell you that. I genuinely believe despite all the rumors that were hearing all the talk. That Odell could be moving to another team. that he's begging opposing teams to come trade forum Allah Eric Berry so many years ago with the cowboys the best move for Odell is to remain with the Cleveland browns. And I think this is true for a a couple of reasons one first of all. He's not having a bad year. There's this talk. That Odell Beckham Junior is suffering through this incredibly terrible season in Cleveland and that things are never going to be right with him again. He will never be a superstar again. He's he's basically you know James Thrash at this point. He's on pace to catch seventy three passes for over one thousand yards. It's a very good season borderline. Alan pro bowl numbers now. I know we're having a lot of Rod. Receivership had big seasons this year. So seventy-three on thousand years probably doesn't make it but those are borderline order line pro bowl numbers also one of the better seasons than any wide receiver in Cleveland browns. History has had in quite some time. And so there's the other thing to this team is going to get better and better and better if we believe this. The sports hernia nonsense. Which I think is a little bit of an excuse is to be honest with you but if we believe this then there's no reason to think that Beckham's not going to be back stronger than ever next year? He'll be more athletic quicker. He'll have his burst back and he will now have the benefit of having a season under his belt with Baker Mayfield. I think that missing these T.. As in the fact that he didn't practice much in training in camp really hampered the production this year. You know this isn't. This isn't a guy who is going to skip time in years six of his career with the New York giants and he knows that. Look me alive play together for five seasons we know what each other is thinking. We know what each other is going to do. This time isn't going to hurt anything. BECCA missed just incredibly valuable developmental time in terms of building rapport with quarterback. When he wasn't there working out with Mayfield? Not as and stuff like that that is going to come in time and point three is that and I want you to run. All these Gregory Point three is is that he's on that cusp of becoming coming the more trouble than he's worth diva wide receiver. He is not far off from teams. Wondering is it worth it to bring Odell Beckham in and once you get that label. It's really really tough to shake. Yes that's a hundred percent accurate right and that will take a quick break. Yeah no you keep doing this. My Mustang was Oh dell is I I think he's in a situation with a quarterback who loves to speak his mind in Baker Mayfield and they think that causes an issue when Ode L. was in New York his issue with the media the way the media covered him the way. The media made everything about Odell Beckham Junior front page news. But you never really heard teammates or anyone really say anything about the situation or about what's going on You know any of the issues with off the field stuff with the weird pizza box video with the boat trip with appeared on field antics. That would go back and forth You never you never heard teammates say things and then there's this weird situation this this week with the sports hernia stuff from Baker and Baker is a guy that wears his emotions on his sleeve. And just Kinda says what comes to him in in a Lotta situations and especially like if you look at how he reacted to the myles Garrett thing and Kudos to the way for the way he handled that that post game press you know own field. Press conference was handled very well. This situation whatever. It is not handled. Great I I don't think I don't think you should be commenting about other players injuries. And I don't know how that's GonNa go over with a guy like Odell Beckham and if the rumors are true that he's telling other teams to come save him like earl. Thomas did with the cowboys this last year. Two years ago right before he broke his eric. Berry was it's it's okay That's that's weird weird thing to do but at that point if you are the browns and you think that you are going to get better like you're saying that you're going to consistently assistant get better. This is clearly a guy who is all about his own success. He's about the Odell Beckham Junior show. It's not about the team it's about what I can do about You know look at me here. Here's my best. Plays out here doing all the individual one handed catches. All you know all that crazy stuff and it's not about winning it's about building that Oh. BJ brand versus that. And if you're the browns you almost would look to part ways and add assets little hanky model for you get get some assets for him. Whatever you can get and move on? You have a good enough team. You can upgrade greater wide receiver. You're clearly covered at running back. You don't have to worry about that for a long time. Baker is obviously your guy that got much better as the season's gone on in your defense with they ever let Myles Garrett back on the field which I assume will happen next year. I mean that's that's sure it up. I just don't see see. I don't see a negative for Cleveland. If they if they let him go no matter how many catches he has will the negative. Is You lose one of the preeminent playmakers in all of professional football a guy who can change the course of the game with one catch and one cut guy who opposing defenses have to who consistently plan against and that opens up things for everyone else if this is look. I think the sports hernia thing is weird because one Odell L. doesn't strike me as a guy who suffers in silence and if he's been dealing with this all year than I think we would have heard about it before I think that excuse or AH justification would have come out prior to this so do I think he's hurt. I think he's heard a little. Do I think it's a sports hernia. I don't know about that but if that's true if it is a sports hernia then he's just going to get better and better like did they mishandled the situation. Sure I don't see any negative at all to Baker Mayfield coming out sticking up for his guy saying look. This wasn't handled correctly the training staff let us down. Is it the the best thing to say for the morale of the the front office. No it's not but it's only going to endear him to Odell Beckham because he's they're supporting and Becca meazza houses back. I'm not worried about that I just I just don't see any reason. Were moving on from Beckham is something that would be the browns best interests and you talked about getting whatever you can get for him. Let's talk about depreciated value. How much value has Odell Beckham junior lost since since last year when Cleveland traded effectively a first round pick in Djibril peppers a actual first round pick in the third round? Pick it to get him. What is what? What is Beckham worth now? I mean I still think you could get a first round pick from someone you may not get to but I think that there are more than enough teams. That would be willing to give to give that up. They just. You're right. Beckham does have talent. That talent has racked up. What two touchdowns this year? Two Games over one hundred yards. I mean we're talking you know. Let's let's look at some names that have more. TV's than Oj that you can't play that game. Why can't then we play that Game Taylor? Gabriel alshon Jeffery alshon Jeffery superstar. Oh is he. He's a big Nelson. Aguilar has more touchdowns was this year. That Beckham Junior Nelson Aguilar is a game-breaker who who who changed completely. When he was allowed to go back to his natural position of the slot and I would argue? Well worth the first round pick. The Eagles used on him. I'm sure Miles Boykin. I don't even know who that is. He has plans mild number of touchdown. Big Athletic wide receiver from Notre Dame. Sure sure John. Ross General Score Two touchdowns in the first week of the season and he's still has more touchdowns than and then he missed like nine games and he still has has more touchdowns than Odell Beckham. So as for as talented as he is and has dynamic is years and the and the preeminent playmaker as you described he he hasn't done it in Cleveland and I know that he gets the most focus because he's there number one wide receiver but number. One guy still put up touchdowns it still happens. Happens guys get double covered guys. Get guys get you know mashed up with the best corner every single week. You're talking about the guys who lead the League in that touchdown down stat guys like Kenny Golladay. WHO had third string quarterbacks throwing to Chris Godwin who has what's his name James? He wins rowing him him. He's got a mirror image of twenty five year old of course of course Allen Robinson who's up towards the top of the list who has basically you know the rookie quarterback and Mitch trubisky throwing to him. I mean even. Aj Brown rookies rookies to have more TD's Cole Beasley for that awful bills. Offense has more touchdown catches dairy sorry Darius late in the two on on Monday night. He had more touchdowns or the same number of touchdowns on Monday night against the eagles terrible secondary then. Ob Jay has all year easy exact same number number. You're drunk you're you're raving. I don't think so. I think I think the thing is. I think the thing is with with Odell Beckham. Is We have this portrayal of how good he is. Because of a one handed weird lay back touchdown catch that happened in his rookie year. And it's been portrayed as he is some ultimate superstar top tier receiver he's fouled it up sure with some very very very good performances differences. Yes now that he's been found out but now that he has been figured out he has been slowdown in these departments. You can say figured out when what are you talking about. Because ninety one catches ninety six catches one hundred and one catches in two thousand seventeen was the year he got hurt. Still had twenty five catches in four games on page one hundred two thousand.
"odell" Discussed on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz
"E._S._p._N.. Radio so this is not terribly surprising tweeter writes in as we're talking about Odell Beckham and the antics and why it is that he's so polarizing thing <hes> this tweeter writes in he is polarizing because his talents outweigh his character and attitude we are waiting for oh B._J.. To mature and be great but he's not and might not keys it all right. Let me take these one at a time. He is polarizing because his talents outweigh his character and attitude his talents outweight everybody's character and his talents best receiver. You've ever seen maybe his talents out the greatest cats you've ever seen his talents are bigger sir then your character and your attitude he's better at talent than you are at character and attitude. You can say that for almost any player in the N._F._l.. Outside of maybe like someone's super philanthropic like like J._J.. Watt which is crazy. You can make that argument. Tom Brady same thing talent outweighs character eh Rogers this speaks to their talent not to their character. That's that's the tricky one with all of this but it keeps happening with the receivers. It's always the diva receivers because they're not team players because because they're looking at me because of it because their job hurts touchdowns hard and sometimes they're fun to celebrate yeah but J._J.. Watt is taking pictures with MOMS before the game and kids and Odell Beckham Junior's fighting field goal difference between those this guy listen. What's the difference between those two? I'm not there shouldn't be a different. I'm just explaining to you why that conversation that we're having I listen J._J.. Taking a picture with my kid before the game or does not have to tell you. Is there a people that occupy sort of Phantom of both players because I I have to admit I bought Odell Beckham Junior's shoes and today I just bought J._J.. Watch shoes I. I like them. Both and I don't understand why you did it on the poll Chris. Can you buy both Odell Beckham. Come shoes and J._J.. Watch shoes. I don't think you can you got the AIDS when when people talk about Odell Beckham Junior's character issue. What are they referring to because you know in the modern N._F._l.? When you have players being arrested for domestic abuse it strikes me that if your character flaw is just ego or diva nece? That's really not a character but you know what's funny about that though as you say that like this this speaks to the tyreek hill thing and everything else if if I put in front in front of fans which one of these two things upset you more in terms of guys character they're gonNa go diva receiver because the domestic abusers don't get the kind of polarizing the diva receivers do which is patently. It's unbelievable unbelievable that that's even allowed to assist in sports. The idea of what it is that you're saying it's literally unbelievable and the problem is with you people viewing it not him. The problem ain't him like maybe he's immature unprofessional unprofessional look at me all the things that he had to be but that dude's a hard worker. Nobody nobody disputes that and that's what the job is to do the hard work and produce and also as an added bonus don't get arrested or suspended like tyreek he kill <hes> don't do the things that are problematic he hasn't done what is what is the greatest. Let's think about this for a second but think about this for just a second all right. What is the greatest actual controversy on Odell Beckham resume okay when you describe him as someone who's personality makes you hate him whose antics make you not trust him? What is his single biggest crime because I'm here to argue that you guys care about whatever you think? His crimes are more more than you do about actual bleeping crimes I would say maybe that that video that <hes> where he was in Spain or perhaps the picture before the the playoff game there was like <hes> something that no one could prove this happened not oh he was the most unpopular person in the sport and when you and he'd always say to people wear my d you is what am I like. Where where do you see my crimes at and we drew drew? We drew that dude. We drove that dude to reports of suicide ambulance rides to the hospital..
"odell" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"Writer just stop by if you tuned in <hes> interesting interesting scuff he's got a G.. Q. Magazine article on Odell Beckham which as I said I think the fascinating thing about Odell Beckham and Cleveland the Jarvis Landry who is a pro bowler who's great who's ninety catches a year and if you read the article there's a lot of aspirational goals for Odell Beckham. I don't think he can reach him at least a production standpoint because he's got great of a player next to if you have if you have a pro bowl wide receiver who catches ninety balls a year next to you and the best tight end and great running back. It's going to be hard to reach those production goals. I think that's going to be a challenge for Baker. Mayfield baby can pull it off. He's inaccurate throwing throwing the football but anyway I wanNA thank Marc Anthony Green who wasn't scheduled but said Yell Oh Stan stop by and talk and it was great joy Taylor joining me every Monday. We do something you know what it's called joy commas right. We're calm was wrong plenty of both so here we go to Monday plenty of both this week here we go where Colin was right Zeki. L. Elliott is in the news again this morning. Quote making plans to leave the country amid his contract holdout listen. I like my running back to be allusive not this elusive. He's out of the country. I'll say it again. I've always questioned judgment. Not Talent not love for football. Why is this story getting out? It's right before training camp. It looks like it was time to be right before training camp to be very disrupted for a football team that has loaded with talent but into division with Philadelphia cannot be distracted. This is my question about Zeke his judgment clearly they wanted this story out there right before camp holding out with two years left in his contract Iraq said it last week and I'll say it again despite his talent I think you can get a hall picks and some good players for him. I would move him. I know it sounds counterintuitive to move. The Best Player has position but it happens all the time in football. This is not the N._B._A.. You in a lot of games with a be running back. If you have the cowboys line if yeah the cowboys defense that's right go where Colin was raw. Manny Pacquiao not only beat key Thurman. He completely trolled control the fight if you would've told me Manny Pacquiao was going to knock out Thurman in the first round I would bet a million dollars Eddie dead <hes> listen styles make fights. Manny style was a nightmare for Thurman and you could tell about halfway through the first round Thurman didn't move his feet at least didn't plan on it for the first three rounds as many dominated the first three to four round scoring effectively going right after him listen Thurman at a good seventh-round around and did win a few rounds of fight war on he landed some punches to pack Yao but as old as manny looked against mayweather. He looked like the youngest four year old boxer in the history of the sport Thurman Sort of lethargic plotting hunting style worked perfectly for the volume puncher and score. Manny Pacquiao won the fight convincing. I don't know I have no idea how how one judge had Keith Olbermann winning split decision. I thought Manny One by four rounds where Colin was right Amazon series all or nothing cameras around Cam Newton all last year and the Carolina Panthers Oh lord he is the opposite of Tom Brady. Tom Brady is obsessed with football in this series. I don't think I ever saw him talking about football. He's got a music guru. Tom's got a Kale Pajamas. Guru whereas Brady is totally consumed zoom with football and it's hard to even find frames of Tom Versus time that aren't about football. It was hard to find moments when cam wasn't talking about music had a cigar in his mouth. Eating junk food is far as committed committed to the sport. Tom Is Cam. It's hard to get around it. Tom Has Kale ice cream. Cam had jumped food cigars <hes> if you love Cam you'll love him more if you are..

"I'm just GONNA hunt you down and manny's flying around getting angles and I think after Thurman knocked him down or after many knock down through is like the dodd prepare for that kind of fighter I mean you have to respect the the experience that has that was. That was the biggest thing it also looked like there was nothing that Thurman was throwing pack Yo that he was really hurting him. Seventh-round he landed a couple. Oh good right other than that but there was no point where I felt like this is the spite of starting to turn but great fantastic <hes> join the news well. That's the news and thanks for stopping by heard Mark Anthony Green had previously we interviewed Lebron James He sat down with a guy that I think is fascinating. Odell Beckham Junior and let's bring him on the show now because I think the interview gives you all sorts of insight to Odell Beckham is so mark Anthony Green. It's nice to meet you so so about it was in the winter six months ago. Odell Beckham calls me on facetime okay. We talked for thirty minutes okay. You guys are good friends no but we talked okay I. I'll give you some background so I talked about something on the air and I had said I don't remember Odell Beckham being a problem at L._S._U.. or his first year in New York but I said it's quite possible that he is a person because I can relate to this that doesn't do well with chaos and the giants have become increasingly chaotic and that may be a poor environment for him like it is for me. I've gone to therapy on this. I don't like chaotic situations stability. He called me and goes man. You nailed it right. He goes the last three years. I don't know what what I'm getting week to week so we have fascinating. He did most of the talking but he was fascinated. Now we've since fallen out. I said something he didn't like but let's talk about Odell the person before we go mark to Odell all player. Do you think he's do you think he's a happy in converse. You're dealing with a happy athlete. I mean I asked him I said are you happy in and he said yeah so I gotta gotTa take his word on that. I think my observation of him is that in L._A.. With his friends with his family with dogs he loves his dogs <hes> he's super happy he was super happy in because he's in his own environment in you know there was some distance from <hes> so much scrutiny and it was a little distance from you know <hes> playing the game but he also I think really loves playing the game football in ideal world he would play the game and be able to play the game his way with who he wants the play with and I think that Cleveland is close than ideal situation for okay so you say you think in his world he just like to play football. See this is where I would push back. I think he also liked instagram. Followers and there's nothing wrong with yeah yeah yeah I think I think that comes is with the likes. I said this remember before facebook. There was a company called my space. Okay K. mice year me yellow than me so I just necessary but my space was a precursor to facebook my my space as wasn't we weren't quite ready for my space. Facebook took the best of it right tweaked it and made a Titan Odell Beckham in my lifetime is the first N._B._A.. Player in the N._F._l.. And I'm not quite sure the League is pivoting. This is my takeaway. Let my space that is being the first N._B._A.. Player in the N._F._l.. That is what we would call. A Bar that is that is good. Sentence is great. I agree with you the thing I would. Let's say is that if you love the N._F._l.. In needs more N._B._A.. Players or it's going to end up like the M._l._b.. Which is old stagnant? Unique personalities is entertainment and I think people like Odell Beckham junior though they are rare..

"The funny thing about the giants. There's clearly no plan because the plan of taking the plan of taking saquon Barkley number two doesn't match up with the plane of trading. Odell Beckham those two divergent plans saquon Berkeley, number two is a guy who take. Hey, we're close we need this transcendent running back to set things up in the offense, but trading Odell Beckham. Now, you have saquon when are they going to be in the playoffs? Not in the next three to four years. So now you're wasting his best years on a rookie contract for offense. That's complete dodge shit. Yeah. It makes those sevices what? Maybe should we do some more poetry Shumshere? Since we're talking about Gettleman decided, no, this this, isn't this isn't. I not that kind of music. Actually. Yeah. We can do we can do Olympic to that music. Okay. I went with the Limerick because he seems like a fucking clown as leprechaun. There. Once was a GM named Gettleman. He said no players bigger than the plan. Little did. We know the plan would show. That clearly he had no idea. What the fuck? He was doing man. Wow. Beautiful participating in the past. What is he doing has feel to have you any of the second best running back in New York? Now when does the NFL investigate to blockbuster trip thousand nicely? I. Ignored it. I'm sorry say again, you guys have the second best running back in New York. Well, now that they've freed now that the giants have freed up five million encapsulates they're free to go after Tevin Coleman..
"odell" Discussed on The Dan Patrick Show
"Like he having been around him. He knows a whole lot more than he tells you that or then that he broadcasts. Right. Whereas he like he breaks who's playing and who's not playing. You know, and he just he just knows stuff, and he has these relationship with guys. And so when when when I read in his mailbag his prediction, somebody asked him for a bold prediction, and he just throws out there. Hey, Odell Abed. Odell Beckham junior's is traded. This is what I had teach husband's outta on my radio show, or is it on this show. I can't remember what shows on my show. And and this was TJ Jonah essentially said what I was thinking take a listen. Every man if say if Jay is putting that out there. They'll Beckham is as good as gone. That's it's like it's about like when e f Hutton talks people. Listen when Jay Glazer says, hey, you know, both prediction. Odell Beckham junior is going to be traded. I'm like, I'm like TJ Schmidt zodda. What did you think of that bold prediction? Yeah. I'm I'm with both U N TJ in the sense. That Jake is not going to throw something out there that he's not has does not have deeply deeply sourced. So I'm of two minds this. So I do think that again if Jay Glazer says, it's it's might happen. Then we need to bear. Seriously. Listen who football perspective from cap perspective makes no sense. You're not gonna get a receiver is good go to Beckham even hard to find that in free agency. If even obviously really hard to find that in the draft McCaffrey spectrum they would lose money goes thirty five million dollars in debt cap. I think that they would have to have a sixty million dollar cap it next year if they if they traded him and so on the other hand this is franchise that drafted running back second overall last year. It's an old school franchise. I don't think I think there's probably twenty five or twenty six franchises that will look at this and say, this doesn't make sense for us. But I think the giants I think they've got him on really cares about chemistry. I I'm I. Keep Odell I'm Provo Dell. I think that a lot of quote, unquote, problems that exist there are are bit overblown..

"In win given a great opportunity to compete at a high level. And when I look at Odell Beckham, I look at a young man that we give a hard. We we judge him off of everything that we've seen in the past. But we we overlook all the good in the pros about him this year. Even even when we look at that tweet, we say is it a cryptic tweet. He's just saying my mouth is shut within a very happy fate in the happy face. He could be happy. What's wrong with that? Come on look. We're not we're not know this year g one. Either coming coming into this year old. They'll check him was not under contract they signed onto or he was under contract. He wanted a new deal gotta new deal big contract. And everybody's like don't pay. Why would you pay him? He brings all this other stuff did Odell do we have any issue with this year? No did the giants have any issue with Odell Beckham Wayne. No that wouldn't have bad. I'm which there was nothing wrong with that. My point is we pick him we pry at little things to make them bigger than what they are. The fact of the matter is odeal Beckham is one of the best receivers in all the football when healthy. And when when having a quarterback that can get him the football sorry to hurt you and make you cry and tear up a little bit Jamie about ally. But that's the problem in New York when I look at Odell Beckham his his stats last year, yet seventy seven receptions as a wide receiver being that affective. You're running back had ninety one saquon Barkley love everything about saquon Barkley. But it tells me that ally manning is not pushing the ball down the field. He is going to dinkum Deng. He's going to go check down. I so you can't even utilize the asset that you really have in an old Dell Beckham, where's he most effective down? The field. Putting pressure on the secondary in deep deep thirds ally. Many doesn't thrive in that area. That's not his level of expertise. He wants a deacon look at the giants. They were fourth in the National Football League in yards after the catch with twenty one eight twenty one hundred in eight yards after the catch. These are all yards mind. You that goes to the quarterback statistics yards? That means when you throw me the ball, whether it'd be two yards ten or fifteen and I get an extra thirty forty. I credit that to you. That's my work in. And so when I'm looking at what what the giants have done. They can they continue to mask how bad ally. Manning really is. Because of how great they are with the ball after getting it in their possession in saquon Barkley has a lot to do with that sterling shepherd has a lot to do with that and odeal Beckham more than probably any has even more to do with that. Now, Greg I I'm an old dill Beckham. I like him as a receiver. I enjoy watching him. He's one of the best. But the argument you're making if that's the case ally hasn't changed. He shouldn't have signed the deal in new has to. No, no, I'm not talking about. I don't know. I'm talking about Dell. If he liked can't do those things and hasn't changed over since he signed that contract. That was already going on is what I'm saying to you is he shouldn't have signed on with ally. Knowing that he's going to be the quarterback. He should ask the giants to move him. Because he can't use his town come on. Now. Own health. If either. If all goes out, right and says, no, no, I'm not signing until you move ally. Manning. What would we be talking about this is selfish? I don't want to sign here because the offense and what you do. Here doesn't enhance my talent. He's you care knowing that after the fact, Greg it would be different. If ally was saying, here's Joan go. Yes. You can't use. No you and use that Tom Brady thinks don't fall over the field plays Tom Brady. Super now, you wanna tell me that he lie because he thinks dunk you shouldn't count the yard for him. Come on. Now that ain't right. And I'm I'm on Odell Beckham junior side. I don't have a problem. He's wired different. I don't wanna choir..

"And I, it's exhausting for for for sixteen weeks to play to bring you a game against all these different opponents everywhere. What's interesting though, about your comment you just made Dan about them being a little bit top heavy. You know what's funny about that as as you watch the preseason unfolding as teams continue to sit regular starters, holy is pretty top heavy quite honestly, because when you're when you're premium position players are in there, it's funny how you're looking at your hearing guys, like Jason Garrett say, well, we kind of knew it was going to be tough sledding when we looked at them playing their ones against our backups. I mean, people are getting their rear ends just wiped all over the floor when they don't have their top in players in there. So look, the giants are in the same boat as everyone else did. You are going to need their horses in order to have a shot and if they have them, they have a shop. Do you think the NFC is the NFC is down for mummy. All four division. Four divisions are strong. They are. We will go back to a point Dan that you made earlier about the role potentially that new, hey, coach, Pat Shurmur played in getting this deal done because. I think it's one, but right now more reaction from Twitter as you might imagine, we're gets out a, hey, man. You might now would never be your cousin on your great uncle Ray Ray side. The family reunion in os three can I have some money? Oh, yet congrats on the new deal l. joke we laugh. That's exactly the type of thing. These guys couldn't hear Odell Beckham junior high on the list of fantasy football teams everywhere. How about this golden Tate fake fainted when he heard about Obama comes new contracts that he hasn't been thinking about his deal said he has an idea of salary numbers. He would like, but chose not to share might be a wise decision again. Very huge, very huge. Listen, I a big day for Odell Beckham junior and really, quite honestly for the New York Giants. A five year extension. He had one more year remaining on his current deal Dan. So that means he's locked up there for the next six years. You mentioned something earlier that I thought was interesting in that is, you know, we saw a tone change if he will, or shift in the way the team player. In this case, we're reacting to one another and interacting with one another and you credited impart new head coach, Pat Shurmur. Why is that? Well, again, talking to people inside that building, we've been told multiple times that Pat Shurmur just sort of established the kind of relationship with Odell Beckham junior early, and then throughout the summer where the stuff was saying, made sense in a way that that appeal to Odell Beckham the, oh, it's one thing for a team to say, we want you in camp. We want you in mini camp. We want you, but it's another thing to explain why. And Pat Shurmur apparently struck the right tone with Odell Beckham junior the point where Odell got on. Board with the program and thought it was the best thing for him and you've seen there's been some touchy public issues throughout the off season where there was a, you know, somebody would say he was cleared and then but wasn't practicing and then and then you saw Pat Shurmur kind of finesse that maybe in a press conference. What however, it worked team and player have been on the same page about what he would and wouldn't be doing while this was worked on and worked out. And obviously the end result has been extremely positive for both sides. What we've seen these situations deteriorate and digress elsewhere in the league pretty quickly because it's an emotional topic. It's, you know, it's money, it's it's what you're worth. That's respect..

"Well, first of all, there were multiple iterations of his deal that took place back and forth between both sides before they even arrived at the numbers that they are today. But credit first and foremost Odell Beckham junior for doing everything he needed to do in order to help in assisting getting this deal done. Obviously, his agent zeaxanthin is a bit on the phone. Go sheeting up through this morning with tweaks that were going on through yesterday to this deal. And then obviously the giant in doing their part to a sex him as the talent that he is in the National Football League. So we know that Odell Beckham junior is getting a five-year extension that it worth ninety five million dollars backs to base value is ninety million dollars. He's getting sixty five million total guaranteed sixty million of that pay over the first year. So that needs and simpler MAC that he's averaging twenty million of that in the first years that he is. Definitely getting. And then he also has five million dollars in expensive in that deal is well, the actual average of the new portion of view, which is a five year extension is eighteen million, but the average over the total length of the deal, including the original year that he had, which was the option year this year puts it at just over sixteen. So as you know, Wendy in a contract negotiation, both sides are looking for something to hang their hats on. So for the giant, they get the figure over the total value just over sixteen, which is about four or five hundred thousand more than what Sammy Watkins is currently getting on his sixteen forty, eight million dollar deal that averages out at sixteen and then for Odell he gets the hang his hat on the fact that he is averaging twenty million dollars in the first three years of that deal, Sheena. Thank you. And having said that, then I would ask you this, but it seems you answered it some in some ways. Do you get the sense that both the player and the team then are pleased with this deal? And certainly happy to have. It done before we start a new season. Well, I'm just going to refer you back to all that a crazy freaky lake dancing going on in the locker room, barely jeopardy out right now. I think that's a funky lag, whatever you wanna call it. I think that's your answer right there. So he is very happy Odell from the beginning was looking to try to achieve that twenty sixty figure. They were able to get that at the last minute over the last couple of days here with the beginning of that of that deal. So he definitely gets that. So yes, answer your question. I think there is a celebration going on over East Rutherford, New jersey right now. That's certainly understandable and certainly warranted. Back to NFL live as we continue to follow breaking news, the New York Giants and Odal Beckham junior have agreed on an extension, a five year extension worth ninety five million dollars max. Adam Schefter joins us now and Adam. We heard Josefina talk. Take us through the numbers. I'll ask you simply kind of what happened and he's last few days to, again, get this deal finalized. Well, Wendy, look, the regular season is upon us in odeal. Beckons junior has not laid in the preseason at all yet, and I don't think that's accidental. There was no way that he could step onto a football field in risking injury, knowing the riches that awaited him, he was determined to get this deal done before he plays football. Again, we've seen all the players simply not report the training camp. Khalil Mack is not in Oakland. Aaron, Donald is not in Los Angeles. Earl, Thomas is not in Seattle. They have approached their search for a new deal in a different way. Odell Beckham junior went into camp and was. Participating day one. What did not wanna put himself out there for a new deal..

"Who you just gave nineteen and a half million or nine hundred million per year in sixty five million look the whole NFL. Every position outside a quarterback is wanting to reset the market for their positions. It is kind of something that is sweeping across the NFL. He's read, look what he did to the top of the wide receiver market. Now, with these service numbers, he's blown the average out of the water in terms of Antonio Brown, and he blew Mike Evans away on almost securing ten million dollars more in guaranteed in full, getting total guarantees than when Mike Evans got that's resetting the top of the market. That's exactly what he wanted to do. And that's what he got. And that's, I mean, again, we'll see the final numbers. We're just talking about what assuming, right? I mean, Joe scenes got good sources. We know reason, but my my point is when you remember what Julio Jones was upset about a month ago, which was a two year old deal. It was already obsolete with three years left on it. That's that's a position Odell Beckham wanted to avoid being right. You don't wanna next year over sudden guys getting deals and they're going past yours. And now yours looks obsolete. So when these numbers. Come in. You know, it looks like he'll hip accomplished. And this is just, I think going to kick off something else that will see kind of come down the road here we're talking about Aaron, Donald contract. It's going to be another one of those where you're is kind of click a cartoon character and pop out of your head and go blowing. It have to have any hope of getting it. Odio Beckham JR. I this way I give him credit. He he played the game mass masterfully the fact that he reported he did everything of to a certain point, not really putting Sylvan like harm's way out there. I think just that goodwill because he could have been like, you know what? I'm not coming. I'm not reporting. I'm, you know, I, I want my money. I before I step foot, you know, in the off season and all that type of no. He said, you know what? I'm a report. I want to try to do everything that the organization has asked of me. And I think because of that and Lewis you you, you point out the relationship that's part of building a relationship that this whole deal came to fruition. Yeah. Any ear to all those who were critical of him making those choices making the decision to be there for for optional workouts. All of that. I would say this, I understand the risk of injury, and there might be some warranted criticism there, but there's more ways to get a deal done. Than there's more ways than one. And in his case, he chose to sort of fall in step, but I don't think there's anything wrong with that only because it got him where he wanted to go as well, which is signing a pretty big deal. Here's Odell Beckham junior dancing recently in the locker room, perhaps beat new. This deal was I want to. It's like that. I mean, there is no reason to stop moving at this point ever a huge new deal. If you're just joining us a five year, ninety five million dollar deal sixty five million of which is said to be guaranteed for injury, guarantee trae forty, one million fully guaranteed its size. So he made forty one million dollars for sure. Today, melting. Dish in to what he was already guaranteed for this year, which is a nice chunk of change as well saying, you know how crazy it, you know how crazy that is. It just seems Anderson will tell us just how crazy it is. Of course, he broke the story to see a huge pay day for Adele, Beckham junior, a big win for the giants as well. How did this finally get across the finish line..
