Speaker 1 (00:00):
They Around the NFL podcast has.

Speaker 2 (00:04):
On leimaged faith in Russell Wilson's come back from.

Speaker 3 (00:10):
The Chris Wesley podcast studio.

Speaker 4 (00:11):
It's around the NFL.

Speaker 3 (00:13):
Dan Hands is here, Greg Rosenthal, Mark Sessler, Colleen Wolf Wednesday,
and I just have to say it, like right off
the bat, I must, we must declare vengeance upon the

(00:34):
NFL establishment if they dare to do that again. Where
we finish a show taping and then major news breaks.
I feel like we have been mark very open with
the football agna zen there about drop this stuff when
we're in our taping window or before, but do not

(00:56):
drop it immediately after. And then we're just all annoyed
texting each other minutes after we leave the studio. So
Russell Wilson no longer connected to the Denver Broncos who
eat unprecedented dead cap money. And we could talk about
it now, but I just want to say vengeance declared.

Speaker 5 (01:13):
If it happens again. I couldn't agree more. I would
imagine Greg agrees, we've been crystal clear about our boundaries
and they were broken on that day I had I
was I had just reached a Mexican restaurant for my
post show meal and had just sat down and made
my order, and then it's like we're talking about do

(01:34):
we want to get together and do an emergency and
bose topper, which is like I would get why we
would do that, We've done it in the past, but
it's like how disruptive, how disorienting. It's really the fault
of pole order.

Speaker 1 (01:45):
For Mark, I didn't know you eat I do.

Speaker 5 (01:48):
I ordered a like a vegetarian, even this brina with
chips and SALTSA. Then it's likely you.

Speaker 4 (01:54):
Got caught in a lie there and now you're making
up a food.

Speaker 5 (01:56):
No, no, no, it's not not. But like I almost had.
I had considered to tell it the the server, like
I might have to put the kibush on this.

Speaker 6 (02:03):
The one time you're going to enjoy food, it gets
blown up in your face.

Speaker 1 (02:07):
It seems of fate.

Speaker 7 (02:08):
Well, Russ has never forgiven me for predicting in his downfall.
Roughly halfway through the twenty twenty one season in Seattle,
Mistakenly's Limited saying I would take mac Jones long term
over him right Church wrong pew there with that take
like almost a little.

Speaker 5 (02:29):
Too specific, yeah, otherwise dead.

Speaker 3 (02:31):
On that, And there's a little bit of a Nick
Fole's Super Bowl similarities there that you kind of hammered
it but then added a little extra Yeah, and a
cost you that could cost you.

Speaker 4 (02:41):
Mark that her sandwiches and Sean Payton.

Speaker 7 (02:43):
You know, we've we've called out his his manipulation of
the media on this show over the years. How often
he's very critical of the media when he is the
one giving all the sources.

Speaker 4 (02:55):
So I think he waited for a show to end.

Speaker 7 (02:57):
He's like, Eric's not going to get upstairs throughout twenty minutes.
The guys are gonna they'll be in their cars. Mark,
we'll hit the Mexican restaurant around this time.

Speaker 3 (03:06):
Let's drop it, Colleen, Yes, eighty five million, let's just
talk about this now. Okay, eighty five million hit dead
money over the next two seasons for the Broncos because
of the release. So in a lot of ways, Connie,
it's almost like a five year mistake, I feel like
for the Broncos because unless they something magical happens with
at the quarterback position or the roster, you know, all

(03:29):
of a sudden turns into a juggernaut and they have
massive dress.

Speaker 4 (03:32):
Even then, it's almost did you just eat.

Speaker 3 (03:36):
The poop this year, absorb as much as that as possible,
kind of tank and then try to start fresh and too,
it's kind of around a two year plan from here.

Speaker 6 (03:43):
Well, this may go down is one of the worst
trades we've ever seen. It's I mean, but Deshaun Watson like,
I don't know that one's pretty bad too.

Speaker 3 (03:53):
They kind of sure, but well you said one one
of its five the trophy stand or the metal stand,
and you could debate the order herschel Walker this trade,
uh huh. And the Shawn's there. We're gonna talk about
Jamal Adams a little bit later, yep, but go ahead.

Speaker 6 (04:10):
No, this is the two year anniversary just passed of
when this happened. And you think about all of the
quarterbacks that Denver has tried to bring in, none of
them worked. And then they give away so much two
first round picks, two second round picks, a fifth, a
bunch of players too, I mean, and then what did
they get in return? Russell Wilson and then the fourth

(04:31):
rounder that became defensive end Uzuari Azurique is that how
you say his name? Who's suspended right now for violating
the gambling policy. So he's not even available, and the
fact that the Denver Broncos paid Russell Wilson before they
even had to do so, they went ahead and gave

(04:51):
him that extension with all of the guarantees, doubling down
on Russell Wilson, just for it to blow up in
such a spectacular way in their I just can't believe
that this is the way that the story ended.

Speaker 4 (05:03):
Do you know when that extension starts? Not even yet
this year? Yeah, oh my god.

Speaker 1 (05:10):
It is wild.

Speaker 7 (05:11):
And there's a thought there's some revisionist history. It's like, well,
but he wanted the contract and that was part of
the reason. And I don't believe it. Because the trade
happened in March. There's an ownership change happening. It was
new owner Syndrome. The new owners showed up who actually
had nothing to do with the Russell Wilson trade, and
one of the first things they did to just be like, hey,
we're Walmart, we got lots of money, we're classy, We're

(05:34):
gonna give him our star player what he wants. So
I don't even buy that you needed to give him
that money. And yeah, it would have been worth it
for the Seahawks just for that moment where Drew Locke
like sent the hearts to Gino or whatever that was
on the sideline, because don't forget Drew Locke was in
this trade for Seattle. Not only did they get rid
of Russ, they got their starting tackle, Charles Cross, they
got a defensive Rookie of the Year candidate Devin Witherspoon.

(05:56):
They got Boye Mafe who's a nice edge, a couple
other young play players that are playing for them, And
in that moment.

Speaker 5 (06:02):
I would spin positive and one in one way at
fall Well because it's the kind of reminded me. And
this is a bit of a an odd parallel, but
like when George Bush like decided we're going to go
into Iraq and like it became a cluster, right w
W Yeah, the younger of the two, and like.

Speaker 1 (06:21):
Where are you going with this?

Speaker 5 (06:22):
Well no, just because it was very clear to like
most thinking people that we were creating an unnecessary problem.
And it was like, at some point you can spin
out of this and just look at I'm the president.
I made a mistake on some level. Let's just get
out of here and move forwards a country. And instead
it was like I'm going to get in further and
further and further.

Speaker 3 (06:40):
Oh see, I thought you were going down the road
of putting up the mission accomplished side.

Speaker 4 (06:45):
Of that battleshit.

Speaker 5 (06:45):
That was the That was sort of the Nathaniel Hackett's
press conference, right us.

Speaker 3 (06:50):
Will Walmart came in big box. Very corporation can make
a huge mistake and just eat the money and move on.
And the big banks they can get bailed out and
they just move forward. It's not the same with an
NFL team and the way the salary cap is structured.

Speaker 4 (07:05):
So that's why this is so devis.

Speaker 3 (07:07):
I have a buddy in the town I live, and
that's a massive Broncos fan named his son Denver drives
around a aren't golf cart.

Speaker 4 (07:13):
I mean, we're talking big time. And he told me
that he.

Speaker 6 (07:17):
Maybe he doesn't have a Ford Bronco like that feels
like a.

Speaker 3 (07:19):
Missed opportunity, missed opportunity. He he, he said he had
to go on a bender after the announcement because.

Speaker 1 (07:26):
Oh no, miss announcement.

Speaker 3 (07:28):
Yes, because he do, because he knows this team that
he loves is going to have to pay for this
for years to come.

Speaker 4 (07:36):
It's like a it's a tough one.

Speaker 8 (07:38):
It's check on your friend. Should we check on?

Speaker 4 (07:40):
I saw him yesterday he said he was okay. Now
the way you know, it just goes orange. Let's ride hold.

Speaker 5 (07:45):
On, let me just finish one thing. I actually think
that what I do like about this very quickly is
that Denver, it is not sticking around for more Russell Wilson,
it's gonna hurt this year. I kind of like your
idea of just doing it all this year.

Speaker 7 (07:57):
If you could can't all right, well, as much as possible,
you've got spread it over two or three years.

Speaker 1 (08:02):
So I'm with you.

Speaker 7 (08:03):
Don't do you don't need to do a post June
first cut. Take as much as you can this year.
They'll be more but much less less polks here.

Speaker 3 (08:09):
Mark, I want you to finish your point, but can
you take more pain this year as opposed to the
next year. I'm saying, what if it's split fifty to fifty?
It is what it is, but just absorb it all.
It's another year in the middle of Patrick Mahomes's prime.

Speaker 4 (08:21):
Go ahead, and.

Speaker 5 (08:22):
Yeah, I would just say that, like, I know, that's
huge arrow down on Russell Wilson where he is right now,
and it's like it's kind of incomprehensible that the Steelers
of someone else are going to sign up for this journey.
But Russell Wilson historically has been one of the better
quarterbacks we've ever covered on this show and won a
Super Bowl. Sean Payton, whether you like him or not
or how he deals with the media, is a winning
coach with a track record in a Super Bowl win.

(08:43):
George Peyton is the guy still hanging around inside this
organization who conceived of this trade. Largely did he? Well, yeah,
largely because it was before they, I mean then they
then he went and thought of all the candidates I
could hire as head coach, Nathaniel Hackett sticks out and
it's like gms don't survive this type of apocalypse, and

(09:04):
he's still hanging around.

Speaker 4 (09:05):
They don't keep their power. I don't think he has
power there anymore.

Speaker 1 (09:07):
But he's there. Yeah, Yeah, you're the one guy that
stands out here.

Speaker 8 (09:11):
I forgot that before the trade was made.

Speaker 6 (09:14):
When Russell Wilson was still in Seattle, it was like
people were talking about him as a Hall of Fame quarterback.

Speaker 8 (09:19):
He had won super Bowls. He they went greg a
perennial contender.

Speaker 4 (09:23):
Exactly.

Speaker 8 (09:23):
You were first on the scene, Greg not.

Speaker 7 (09:26):
First, And I think, well that I think he has
a chance to make the Hall of Fame. People are
a little too dismissive of what he accomplished that like
what he is now doesn't discount what he accomplished his
first eight or nine years.

Speaker 1 (09:37):
But that's a separate point.

Speaker 4 (09:38):
Yeah, Like I mean, I.

Speaker 7 (09:40):
Like there's I saw this tweet out there saying, like,
of these four who would make the Hall of Fame,
who would you put in if you could only choose one?
Russell Wilson, Phil Rivers, Eli and Matt Ryan. Who are
all going to be interesting cases?

Speaker 1 (09:54):
And that's not an.

Speaker 3 (09:55):
Interesting case, right Giants all time passing leader with two
Super Bowl wins over Bell, checking Brady, including beating the
other team.

Speaker 4 (10:02):
Everyone looks at it. Everyone looks at the differently.

Speaker 7 (10:05):
I look at the regular season, says like, how many
times were you a top five quarterback?

Speaker 1 (10:08):
How many times you were you?

Speaker 7 (10:09):
That's good too, top ten quarterback Eli Manning. We don't
need to get into him, but he probably had one
season where maybe he could be a top five, maybe
two or three seasons where he'd be top ten. Russell
Wilson was a top five to ten quarterback for seven
or eight straight years, which to me, with the Super
Bowl title, he might actually have the best case of
all those. I'd probably go, but I would put Phil

(10:29):
Rivers first on that and Russ would probably be second.

Speaker 4 (10:31):
Yeah, he was.

Speaker 3 (10:31):
Also And I'm looking at it right up right now
where the second season said two disastrous seasons in Denver.
The first season was a true disaster with Hackett. Last
year was a middling season, wrong side of the Dalton scale,
but not the worst quarterback in the league.

Speaker 4 (10:44):
And they at that point with.

Speaker 3 (10:46):
Peyton now fully not Patton Peyton, although he has pronounced Peyton.

Speaker 4 (10:50):
That's the other reason we gave him a new name,
is Kevin.

Speaker 5 (10:54):
Kevin Sutherland was so I believe it was close to that. Eric,
not early did you remember or Donald.

Speaker 3 (11:00):
To see that for this exact reason, we don't need
to lose momentum in a show because it's the patent
Peyton Peyton thing.

Speaker 8 (11:08):
Yep, yep, it gets me every time Kevin's disaster.

Speaker 3 (11:11):
Let's go with Kevin Sutherland, and I'm sure the listeners
will correct me. So Kevin Saunders, guys, Kevin Saunders is
still there, and you know whatever, And the latest News.
By the way, the update to this schefter reported the
Broncos have granted Russell Wilson permission to speak with other teams,
so he doesn't have to wait until, you.

Speaker 4 (11:31):
Know, the beginning of the new league year. He can
do it right now.

Speaker 3 (11:34):
So thirty five year old quarterback coming off a high
profile failure, I think he should have some market, but
not a big one.

Speaker 1 (11:45):
He's a tricky case as a starter.

Speaker 7 (11:47):
I put him number eighty something on the top one
oh one. That was I was debating whether like him
or Tannehill, for instance, and I had to take into
account the Russell Wilson of it all, Like who do
I see as just being like an easy backup? Because
at this point I think he's a backup And to me,
Tannehill just make they're both thirty six. It's similar, Like

(12:10):
to me, he just makes more sense of just like
a guy you insert there with like a one bee
with a.

Speaker 1 (12:14):
Rookie quarter totally agree with you.

Speaker 7 (12:16):
I wouldn't even it seems a little. It seems a
little like a lot like he might expect more.

Speaker 8 (12:20):
I find he wants to win two more Super Bowls.
That's what he said, So maybe as a backup.

Speaker 4 (12:25):
But he I feel like a straight backup.

Speaker 3 (12:27):
I put him more in that category, just above where
it's like the Minshew Baker. Sure, those types where he
can be a starter in the right situation, but signed
somewhere as a backup. That's not crazy either, Like he's
not an entrenched backup. He's not like Sam Darnold, for instance.
At this stage. I think he's one step above that.
But considering where he was a couple of years ago,
it's pretty crazy. And the Broncos obviously didn't see it coming.

Speaker 7 (12:51):
They can still win, though. Look, the Bucks just maybe
what I don't think the goal here. I think they
can have a winning record, win the division. I mean
because they're with the Chiefs and because of the roster
right now, it's very unlikely. But the Bucks just ate
a very similar dead cap hit for Tom Brady and

(13:12):
made the divisional round the breeze contract.

Speaker 4 (13:15):
The first year he was gone. They were eating that.
It didn't go well.

Speaker 3 (13:17):
They're in the I agree like that. That compounds the
problem here, Like you can't they have one hand tied
behind their back for two years, especially in arguably the
toughest division. Uh, it's it's bad. It was a big swing.
You want your team, you want your favorite team to
take big swings. But sometimes you.

Speaker 5 (13:37):
Know, one little quick thought that came to mind is
like doesn't work. We never learned from this stuff. And
like people were hyping up the Russell Wilson thing. It's like,
right now we're talking about like the best quarterback that
will be available as a late thirties veteran with an
achilles tear and he's about to sign for major money somewhere.
It's like two years from now, we might be saying
forgetting how that will be lauded.

Speaker 4 (13:58):
Mmmmmmm.

Speaker 3 (14:00):
Way to really put it in there, you go kind
of put a like an exclament, You put a slammer
that suggests you don't like my point.

Speaker 5 (14:06):
When I love these comments coming together and shows it's
like iways feel like Kirk Cousins, you got to go
get me? Is the first chip to fall? It's like
fall where and let's see how that lands.

Speaker 4 (14:16):
Great way to punctuate the conversation.

Speaker 5 (14:19):
I'm happy to help.

Speaker 7 (14:19):
And what it did was it like took this topic
we're talking about now and it gave it broader context.

Speaker 5 (14:26):
Yes, I will, I will suggest uh. This morning when
I and I appreciate me. You do this correct. You
open up our our chat client and Greg will give
an initial lineup of no, like, Dan, I think you
were trying to read this insanely long book Infinite Jest
and like like by David Foster Walls that has a
note in a rota section at the end. It's like
one hundred and sixty pages long. Like, that's what this

(14:48):
news lineup looked like. And Weird threw one item.

Speaker 6 (14:51):
Sessler and I immediately when we saw each other, we
were like, how about the news?

Speaker 8 (14:54):
A lot of news?

Speaker 7 (14:54):
You know what the the rest thing is? After that,
it's like a bunch of tags and some quick I.

Speaker 1 (15:00):
Don't like you guys just share a lot of anxiety.

Speaker 8 (15:03):
Anxiety twins, everybody relacs.

Speaker 3 (15:05):
We're going to get through the news. Everything is gonna
be fine. Coming up a little later, and this is
going to set everyone of these a truth serum will
be administered to key NFL figures that allows them to
speak their mind in a really sincere way, in a
way that you want to hear from athletes and people
connected to the sports. So that's coming up first. Yeah,

(15:27):
let's get through the rest of this news before two
of the people in the studio have a panic attack.

Speaker 4 (15:32):
No, I don't believe it's sad.

Speaker 3 (15:34):
Fog likes talking about we're related, thing like like.

Speaker 4 (15:43):
Wow.

Speaker 3 (15:43):
There's a video from Brent Soboleski on Twitter of Texas
Tech Safety Tyler Owens, who said, if you could hear
that he does not believe planets planets actually exist. I
don't believe in space. I don't think there's other planets
and stuff like that. I have an idea to weed
out certain prospects a test, a cognitive test, if you will,

(16:09):
Oh that, make sure that that element is in my
locker room.

Speaker 4 (16:14):
How about that?

Speaker 3 (16:16):
What do you think about the idea of a test?
I feel like that would go over well with the public.

Speaker 5 (16:23):
Not in his defense, because I don't agree with what
he's saying, but he seems to be coming from the
world of like if everything's sort of just a sim
that the concept of other universes and planets and UFOs
and everything else is just sort of a simulation that.

Speaker 4 (16:36):
But he's not talking about even UFOs.

Speaker 5 (16:38):
Well, no, but planets that you'd be looking up at,
essentially like something that just exists in our imagination.

Speaker 7 (16:44):
He's basically I listened to more of this guy I
was in. He went in, he admitted he was in
a YouTube you know, rabbit hole and essentially says, where's
the proof? You know, I do my own He was
essentially giving the I do my own research. I haven't
seen the proof of the other planets.

Speaker 8 (16:59):
No mood believe it.

Speaker 5 (17:01):
I want to a lot of people would go down
that road as a starting point.

Speaker 1 (17:04):
I don't need to listen there.

Speaker 3 (17:06):
What I do need to listen to is his agent
talking to him after the combines.

Speaker 5 (17:10):
Well, you fool.

Speaker 7 (17:12):
I think that would be too harsh to eliminate people
with these beliefs because it's not hurting anyone else. And uh,
the NFL is often two lacks in other areas of
of some behaviors and the way this seems harmless, Like.

Speaker 5 (17:25):
Gino Smith noted, cognitive test, Gino Smith noted flat.

Speaker 4 (17:28):
Back at it back in the day, a flat earther.
I like to think that that that he's miso. You'd
like to think it, but we don't know.

Speaker 6 (17:35):
He had a real nice broad jump at the combine,
So maybe look past the planet stuff space where we
are in this case.

Speaker 3 (17:44):
As if I were a roster builder, I would have
to take out the red marker.

Speaker 8 (17:49):
There a lot of red flag.

Speaker 1 (17:50):
That's fair.

Speaker 4 (17:51):
That's your team, that's fair.

Speaker 3 (17:52):
Yeah, congrats are you welcoming him in? Maybe I could
educate him, I could save him.

Speaker 5 (17:58):
I'd also say, is deliver He was, you know, not
tongue intrigued, but he was. He was playful about it,
and like, doesn't think that everyone agrees with me. He's
not trying to pound the table saying everyone must agree
that there are no planets.

Speaker 6 (18:08):
Hey, everyone can have their own opinion as long as
it's not hurting anyone else.

Speaker 8 (18:11):
So it's fine in my.

Speaker 4 (18:13):
Book, right, but not when there are facts involved.

Speaker 1 (18:16):
Sure, there should be limits, not overwhelming evidence.

Speaker 7 (18:19):
You have to be wrong. You could be wrong about things.
That's fine, all right.

Speaker 3 (18:22):
The franchise tag deadline is coming gone, so and tomorrow
is going to be good because we're going to after
all the tags and all the cuts, we're going to
take another look at Greg's free agency one on one
and by the way, the free agency.

Speaker 4 (18:37):
Three what do we say fourteen? Was it three?

Speaker 5 (18:40):
Three twenty one?

Speaker 1 (18:41):
Maybe it was two thirteen.

Speaker 4 (18:42):
I mean, you can't even remember.

Speaker 5 (18:44):
If we're still working on that, So how do you
know it could have evolved since then changed that and
we're continuing to that will be landing.

Speaker 4 (18:51):
When did we decide on Tuesday night?

Speaker 5 (18:54):
I think around that time.

Speaker 1 (18:55):
Yeah, but you know that seems appropriate to the time.

Speaker 3 (18:58):
So anyway, Greg, we're gonna visit his list with a
very special guest, Demina Kimes tomorrow talking over now what
is the list?

Speaker 5 (19:08):
Like?

Speaker 3 (19:08):
Well, guy, because we the legal tampering period is set
to begin on Monday. So here are the players that
got tagged, and a lot of these are we knew
what was coming and now it's official. Josh Allen by
the Jaguars, They're a great pass rusher. Brian Burns by
the Panthers, they're great. They're gonna never gonna let him go. Never,
They're never gonna let him go.

Speaker 8 (19:27):
Can't.

Speaker 4 (19:27):
It's gonna be stuck there forever.

Speaker 3 (19:29):
Lagarius Snead now officially tagged, and he's been getting permission
to seek a trade. So we'll see if Sneed's on
the move next week. Justin Mattabuque of the ravens Antoine
Winfield of the Bucks, so Baker officially headed toward free agency.
If they don't get a deal done, be the Bears
tag Jaalen Johnson, the Colts tag wide receiver Michael Pittman.

(19:50):
So that's another name out of the mix in terms
of veteran wideouts. The Patriots used that there's always somebody
I'm gonna use the transition tag.

Speaker 7 (19:58):
Look at me, there's really not always somebody like the
hipster option.

Speaker 3 (20:02):
Yeah, five times you use the franchise tag, I'll use
the transition to the league.

Speaker 5 (20:07):
Just in awe of that process.

Speaker 3 (20:09):
Kyle Duggar gets that. What is the transition tag again?
Greg Quick refresher.

Speaker 7 (20:14):
It this year for the Safeties will be thirteen point
something million and the franchise would have been seventeen. And
the difference in that money allows Kyle dugger to shop
his wars around the league. And if you can get
a contract, it's an offer sheet in the time last
five days to match it. No, Lamar got the non

(20:34):
exclusive franchise tag, which is what most of these players got.
So in theory, if you wanted to give up two
first round picks for any of these players, I believe
they all got the non exclusive.

Speaker 8 (20:44):
Yeah, no one got the exclusive you.

Speaker 7 (20:45):
Could and Lugarious Sneed is the only one that's out
there shopping. I think the rest you kind of assume
no one's even gonna think.

Speaker 6 (20:51):
But with Dougger, he plays multiple positions, and I felt
like it was weird that they gave him the transition
tag and obvious league gave him the safety one. So
it's just like the cheapest option. We've seen that before everything.

Speaker 3 (21:04):
Players sometimes will fight that through the Union, like a
lot of tight ends in the past, I feel like
not a lot, but it's happened.

Speaker 4 (21:11):
I want to be labeled as a wide receiver based on.

Speaker 1 (21:16):
Parsons.

Speaker 7 (21:16):
Just got called a defensive end, I believe for his
fifth year option, and I do think he might file
an appeal because it's less money now.

Speaker 1 (21:25):
The Dougg defensive end is less than linebacker.

Speaker 7 (21:28):
Right now, which is crazy well because they need to
make an edge one to linebackers now include outside linebacker
be so.

Speaker 1 (21:36):
Much better far into this.

Speaker 4 (21:39):
Is it a substantial difference?

Speaker 7 (21:40):
It must be if he's filing I am just guessing
that he may file one.

Speaker 1 (21:44):
It's like three million, but.

Speaker 6 (21:45):
A lot of teams will like sweeten the deal if
you do play multiple positions, and like obviously Dugger lined
up more at safety than he did at corner.

Speaker 7 (21:53):
But still yeah, he's he's a safety. I mean you
have to put him at some positions. Yeah, that would
be the position. You do that when you think, hey,
we're we want to keep this guy. We think we're
offering him a good deal. He's not happy with it.
We have a feeling maybe if you go out there,
our deal is actually still going to be the best
one out there, or that we would match it. There's

(22:14):
been reports that you know, he's in the thirteen fourteen
million dollars, but then you don't want to give him
the franchise tag because that's seventeen and that starts the
bidding at like a higher number than you want. So
that's an interesting one. The rest of the franchise tags, though,
were eminently predictable, Like everyone locally nationally kind of thought
these were all the guys that were going to get it,
and they all got it, and it made my list,

(22:35):
you know, way less exciting.

Speaker 3 (22:38):
Prominent players not tagged who remain on Greg's list Dolphins
defensive tackle Christian Wilkins, Giants running back Saquon Barkley, both
set to hit the markets.

Speaker 1 (22:48):
Wilkins was a surprise to me.

Speaker 4 (22:49):
Was it okay? So too?

Speaker 5 (22:50):
And like there's some whispers that Cleveland, of all teams,
would maybe pursue him.

Speaker 7 (22:55):
They he's going to make He should be thrilled, you know,
because franchise tags, oh don't help these players at all.
He's going to make way more guaranteed money in the end.
And I'm trying to think where he is now on
my top one one. He's got to be like top
three now after all.

Speaker 6 (23:10):
These but the Dolphins are just bleeding defenders at this
point with Xavier Howard, Jerome Baker, Emmanuel Agba, now Christian Wilkins.
Obviously there's still time to sign him to a defensive coordinator,
although it's exactly unlikely, but all of this puts so
much pressure on to us since they're clearing all of
this cash to give him the monster deal, and now, like,

(23:31):
I don't know how that defense is going to look next.

Speaker 7 (23:33):
Right, They have Ramsey, they have Tyreek, they gave Chubb
a ton of men. They do have like a lot
of big time. They want to pay Jalen Philip, so
they had to make decisions, but they sneaky are in
among the worst situations with the Kappa. He's twenty eight
years old. Christian Wilkins a good player number three on
the list now, so you should thank them.

Speaker 3 (23:49):
All right, let's pause right here for a minute and
take a break and then get back to the news.

Speaker 4 (23:55):
All right, we're back.

Speaker 3 (23:56):
Prominent cuts three from the Seattle Seahawks, and we'll start
with Jamal Adams, the safety who during the pandemic, was
traded from the Jets for two first round picks and
then given a massive deal and one of the stranger
career arcs or Adams. He had nine and a half
sacks in his first season with Seattle from the safety position,

(24:18):
which was a record. I kind of remember because he
got hurt that year too. He's been injured constantly ever since,
but I kind of feel like he had nine and
a half almost going into December and then didn't have
any of the rest of the season or something close
to that, and then never had another sack the rest
of his time with Seattle, which is absolutely bizarre, and
dealt with a lot of serious injuries and some dumb
off the field stuff and kind of a mess for Seattle.

Speaker 4 (24:40):
So they were ready to move on.

Speaker 3 (24:41):
Caandre Diggs also leaving a team that's a quality defensive
back that I'm sure we'll have a nice market and
as will tight end Will Disley another salary cap casualties.
So the Seahawks, who obviously had a lot of work
to do here, say goodbye.

Speaker 4 (24:55):
To three veterans with Adams as the headliner.

Speaker 5 (24:57):
I mean, this had a lot to do with It
opens up twenty new twenty eight million in cap space,
and Adams and Diggs were two of the three most
expensive safeties in the league. Adams was failed experience of experiment.
It was like a our final piece of the puzzles,
super super Bowl type situation.

Speaker 1 (25:12):
With Russell Wilson in his prime, but it just never
ever worked.

Speaker 5 (25:15):
They like Julian Love at safety, and they're gonna have probably,
you know, with their new coach, that defense could look
very different and I kind of trust what they're doing.

Speaker 4 (25:22):
Yeah.

Speaker 7 (25:23):
Devin Witherspoon, who they got in that Russell Wilson trade,
is a cornerback, but he does a lot of the
things that Jamal Adams does, which play from the slot
and blitz from there, and it is better at it.
I mean, for a second, I was like, does Josh
Jamal Adams make the top one on one And I guess no,
of course not. A guy can't see still in the league.
Guy can't stay healthy and can't cover. Really Kuandrey Diggs

(25:45):
is still like a nice, nice player at Seahawks fans
swear that he had a much better season than his
disastrous PFF ranking would indicate. But he's a guy, you know,
is asked to kind of cover for a lot of
his teammates. I think he's in the league, Dan, because
I think he'll want to keep playing, and absolutely a
team is going to give him like a incentive based

(26:05):
two or three million dollar contracts something like that.

Speaker 6 (26:07):
But what a disaster for Adams in Seattle. Thirty three games,
he missed out of a possible sixty seven regular season games,
and like the fact that all of his sacks were
in twenty twenty. I mean, it's just like such an anomaly,
but just so such bad luck on his part with
the injuries and for Seattle to make that move.

Speaker 7 (26:27):
I'll always remember him at that Miami super Bowl at
our hotel, right Dan, third pool party parties lost three
thirty in the afternoon on like a Wednesday or whatever.

Speaker 3 (26:39):
We were staying at this kind of living, very Miami
like hotel. It was like Jamal Adams and like nineteen
women and I felt like we were kind of.

Speaker 4 (26:47):
Separated, definitely stacked the deck.

Speaker 7 (26:49):
He was in a good spot. Yeah, no dudes allowed.

Speaker 4 (26:52):
I think it had.

Speaker 8 (26:53):
We were having to get invited.

Speaker 7 (26:54):
We were having literally a meeting with our like laptops
that were like hi, hello here over, I'm just we
we did ever laptop we were.

Speaker 4 (27:01):
It was.

Speaker 3 (27:02):
It was we were about fifty yards away from this outrage.
It's like remember the Lashawn McCoy invite that went.

Speaker 8 (27:09):
Out, like exactly what I'm thinking.

Speaker 4 (27:11):
We'll pick you up on.

Speaker 3 (27:12):
A desolate street corner in a van and take you
to the party. I got a feeling Jamal maybe not
as on the radar as Lashan did. Shady made him
stake there had a similar like rounding up of all
the hot women in South Beach, and we were sitting there,
four laptops open, fifty yards away, just like pretending to
be or trying to organize our thoughts for upcoming episodes.

Speaker 4 (27:35):
I thought it and it's.

Speaker 3 (27:36):
Like every hot girl that's ever existed surrounding Jamal Adams.

Speaker 7 (27:39):
So the crazy thing was it was like Wednesday at
like one pm.

Speaker 4 (27:42):
It was part of it seemed odd to me.

Speaker 5 (27:45):
It put you in a bit of a tough spot
because I think you're you're obviously in a completely different world.
But Jamal Adams now, but now he was sort of
the centerpiece of the Jets, and you could kind of
tell it was cool.

Speaker 4 (27:53):
Yeah, but you could tell.

Speaker 5 (27:53):
From like twenty five yards the way it was he
was a little bit of a knucklehead. Yeah, and he
was pre organized this entire absurd party.

Speaker 8 (28:00):
So you guys were show planning with your laptops at
the pool in Miami.

Speaker 7 (28:04):
Oh yeah, yeah, it was like it was a hotel
emptiest pool at like noon on a Wednesday.

Speaker 5 (28:08):
No, that's nice.

Speaker 4 (28:09):
We actually got outside. Yes, that's exactly what it was.
It was. It was nice.

Speaker 3 (28:13):
I remember there wasn't many league figures at the hotel
it so it's like they just put us one put
us in a hotel.

Speaker 5 (28:19):
It started to turn wild though in many in many
ways shapes he was.

Speaker 3 (28:23):
This is like a real deep cut if you know,
like nineties hip hop, but if you remember when mc
hammer became Hammer and uh and then you know, gangster
rap took over and he tried to employ like a
West Coast sound. He put out a single in like
ninety five ninety six called pumps in the bump and
pull up that on YouTube, the original version, the one

(28:45):
that got banned by MTV, and then you'll know what
Jamal Adams.

Speaker 4 (28:49):
Party looked like.

Speaker 3 (28:50):
Pretty what good reference mark you, especially when you have
some private time me look it up.

Speaker 7 (28:56):
Yes, it's very yeah, Rex and report back Drumshaker would
be another you know, totem poll of the era.

Speaker 3 (29:02):
But anyway, I think Adams, you know, he had a
really unfortunate like took a pot shot at a former
Jets beat reporter's wife recently over you know, a tweet
that called out his suspect coverage and general has made
bad decisions. I'm just wondering, as you have the right
mindset to catch on somewhere and we shall see. In
other news that some tight end news. The Texans signed

(29:26):
Dalton Schultz to a three year contract, so they keep
one of their weapons around.

Speaker 4 (29:33):
Young quarterback C J. Stroud.

Speaker 3 (29:34):
Also out there reported that veteran tight end zach Ertz
has agreed to a one year contract with the Commanders.

Speaker 4 (29:40):
According to ESPN, so two veteran tight ends and.

Speaker 7 (29:43):
Your guy Kaymi fairband back with the Texans, easily the
best kicker on the market. Three years over fifteen million,
which average salary you know, might pass Mac Gay. I'm
not sure as the highest paid kicker. We'll see the guarantee,
but he got paid there with every dollars. There's no
tight ends available, well whatsoever, Dalton Saltz was the best one.
I think it's kind of an indication. Last year at

(30:05):
this time he got like a one year, prove it
type of deal. But now the league is flushed with
all this cap space, now he gets.

Speaker 1 (30:12):
A nice one.

Speaker 6 (30:13):
I was serious that they didn't tag Jonathan Grenard, like
after getting that deal done with Dalton Schultz. I thought
for sure that would be the next step for them,
the next logical step. He's coming off a career best season,
but they didn't do it.

Speaker 7 (30:25):
He and Daniel Hunter, who knew he wasn't going to
get tagged, had a good day Tuesday because all those
pass rushers got paid and Grenard's the only like really
young guy left.

Speaker 5 (30:35):
Texans have the fourth most cap room and they are
being linked here and there to Calvin Ridley because you
know a lot of the tags went to these wide receivers.
There's not that many veteran guys. That's a great draft
for it too, but also Saquon Barkley and to the
Texans would make some sense to me.

Speaker 8 (30:50):
Oh, I love that.

Speaker 4 (30:52):
In other news.

Speaker 3 (30:54):
Still to me anyway, inexplicable that Bill Belichick could not
get one of the seven head coaching jobs this off season,
couldn't find a match. So now he's essentially just hanging
out there, and now the various networks are poking around Bill.

Speaker 4 (31:09):
Did you watch the game.

Speaker 3 (31:10):
On see that's just a freeze frame there an audio
freeze frame of the type of insight that you're gonna
get from a Bill Belichick in the studio. But our
buddy Andrew Marshan, who by the way, it sounds like
he got the bag and went from the post to
the athletic home of the New York Times, you'd assume

(31:31):
it the athletic is home at the New York Times.
At this point, I would think Marshaan got a nice raise.
He should write an article on himself.

Speaker 1 (31:41):
He really should, he is savvy. I would assume he
got a raise.

Speaker 3 (31:43):
And we tried to have him on the show at
the Super Bowl because I love talking media with Andrew,
but he was at the timing didn't work out, But
we're gonna have to get Andrew back on the show
soon if we can.

Speaker 4 (31:53):
Anyway, So here's a.

Speaker 8 (31:54):
Scoop Bland me to talk about.

Speaker 4 (31:56):
Lots to talk about. Have you been in a Andrew
Marshaan article before?

Speaker 8 (31:59):
I have not.

Speaker 4 (32:00):
I have not.

Speaker 8 (32:01):
I would kind of like it to stay that way.

Speaker 4 (32:04):
Sometimes it's great.

Speaker 1 (32:05):
Yeah, it could be, Andrew.

Speaker 8 (32:07):
I hope you're doing well.

Speaker 6 (32:07):
Congratulations on the career move anyway.

Speaker 3 (32:11):
According to Marshawn, Belichick has met with CBS and NBC.
Also in the mix, Peyton Manning. You know, he's got
that old Omaha productions that seems to be doing well.
They're trying to land him as well. So obviously it's
kind of got to shan Peyton vibe to it. Connie,
because uh, Connie, who's our entrenched media force, one of
the faces of NFL Network and our Thursday night football

(32:33):
coverage and hot damn at the super Bowl.

Speaker 4 (32:37):
I mean, you did the in stadium anchor of the
Super Bowl.

Speaker 1 (32:39):
That was fun.

Speaker 3 (32:40):
Is it a weird how successful sometimes she is because
we know Colleen so well, and you're a fully formed
human and and and well he might be.

Speaker 8 (32:51):
Like I came in here as a child, like a baby,
and now I've been brown up and I'm going off
to college.

Speaker 4 (32:58):
But what I'm trying to get Cemetery to do.

Speaker 3 (33:01):
What I'm trying to say, is that so polished on
that Super Bowl coverage, Like not even I was I
don't know why I was tracking.

Speaker 4 (33:09):
This, just because I was kind of in awe of
you coming all.

Speaker 3 (33:13):
Not a single flub because it's not like one word,
no ever in like five hours of pre and in
game coverage.

Speaker 6 (33:20):
Oh you should hear the conversation in my own head
that's going on as I'm hosting those segments in those shows.

Speaker 1 (33:26):
Like I said, though, I think you you know us different.

Speaker 5 (33:28):
We all you bring guests to the Super Bowl and
like they get to hang out as a group, and
like they were dazzled by the fact that this was
happening out on the field during the entire I.

Speaker 1 (33:37):
Was really.

Speaker 6 (33:39):
I was really nervous about the Lombardi Trophy hit when
I was out there with Larry's and it was Larry'sanka
and John Elway like the two minute war that one, yeah, yeah, yeah,
And I didn't have anything prepared for that yet, and
I kept being like, Okay, it's tough. It's now the
third quarter fourth quarters, coming up?

Speaker 8 (33:58):
What am I going to do for this?

Speaker 6 (34:00):
And then I just like kind of went out and
winged it and thank god I landed the plane.

Speaker 7 (34:05):
Well, the craziest not to get two sidetracked, But the
craziest one was the two minute warning one in the
fourth quarter. Yeah, that one, right, And it reminded me
a little when we were in London and we did
our hits and I threw out there like, hey, John Harbaugh,
let's start, you know, being a little more aggressive in
the red zone, which you're not supposed to do.

Speaker 4 (34:27):
Apparently over the loudspeaker.

Speaker 7 (34:28):
Amazing, but you guys were over the over the stadium
at the two minute warning right before the play that
would have won the Super Bowl for the forty nine ers,
and you guys were talking about it play. You're like, hey,
coming up, it's like a pretty big time play. And
I'm just thinking of all the forty nine ers. I'm
sure the coaches aren't exactly locked in, but there's got
to be some players on the bench that are like,
listen to this thing, about to play the biggest play

(34:50):
of their entire life. And there's Connie and Steve Smith
being like, oh, I think they should run it or
whatever you guys were saying, Oh was that a crazy.

Speaker 8 (34:57):
Oh in my head about those various hits.

Speaker 3 (35:00):
I would if I also, if you stuck me next
to Larry Zanka with eighty thousand people watching, like, ask
him a question back. I remember you from Family Matters.
You were on that once. Yet it that's the weird cameo.

Speaker 4 (35:10):
That was cool. We go full like Chris Barley Show
with him.

Speaker 3 (35:14):
Remember when you were with urcle It's awesome anyway, so
Belichick will see it's gonna be a one year deal.

Speaker 7 (35:20):
I would think, Oh, thing's weird though, how many different
casts can they have? The idea would maybe be pairing
him and saving but that's what they mentioned. You can't
just do it on Monday night. They already have the
Manning cat there and the regular.

Speaker 4 (35:30):
He becomes a regular on the Manning cast.

Speaker 5 (35:32):
There is one incredible sentence in this Athletic article. Belichick
has made it clear he only wishes to talk about
aspects of football that interest him. But this, of course
is a two way street with the whatever you know,
he just wants to talk about the little things that
he's into, Like, wouldn't we all be so lucky? Just
to like just open.

Speaker 3 (35:49):
Maybe there'll be more like hit pieces now on Bill
for wanting to do it his way, because God forbid,
God forbid, the greatest coach of all time might want
to do it his way.

Speaker 4 (35:57):
Well, they, yeah, well he doesn't want it the studio shows.

Speaker 7 (36:01):
So if they were gonna use him, like it would
be some pre tape thing or it would be some
you know, he's gonna get deep on the x's and
he doesn't want to be sitting up there saying like
who's under more pressure today?

Speaker 5 (36:11):
Or like what's your pick in the Sunday?

Speaker 1 (36:13):
Like he's not gonna make game picks and do a
bunch of dope.

Speaker 8 (36:16):
You don't think he's gonna do X factors.

Speaker 3 (36:18):
God forbid that Bill doesn't have power over Terry Fotto.

Speaker 4 (36:21):
I mean, like just remember this moment in time people.

Speaker 3 (36:25):
That's all I'm gonna say.

Speaker 4 (36:28):
Nothing personal to Terry.

Speaker 3 (36:29):
But let's check out the old CVS all right afternoon,
Delight hit it, Jack's cut, Darius Williams, Rashawn Jenkins and
fully fought a Houston. He's former Jets. I shouldn't know
this bat too. Cassi, Yes, defensive tackle. Speaking of the Jets,
they cut free agents. Signing Bust Lake and Tomlinson never
worked for him, and c j Uzama another price.

Speaker 4 (36:52):
He signing a tight end a couple years ago didn't work.
I see a lot of things don't work out. The
heads up a lot of the signings next week will fail.

Speaker 3 (37:00):
Anthers cut Dante Jackson and Hayden Hurst, and the Dolphins
also say goodbye to Jerome Baker or anything on that anyone.

Speaker 5 (37:07):
The one thing I looked up because Tomlinson I think
I liked him going in and it didn't happen Like PFF,
like the Jets current offensive line. We know it's a
draft kneed, but in general, it's like, you know how
PFF scores like they get into reds and orange and
it just looks like a forest fire. You want deep
greens and blues, and it's like they've got some work
to do.

Speaker 7 (37:26):
They don't have many guys that they know are playing
a certain spot.

Speaker 4 (37:29):
You got like Vera Tucker and that's about it.

Speaker 3 (37:31):
Barat Tucker, who I think is gonna kick and tackle
there right, Joe Tipman who had a really nice rookie year.
They need two guards and a left tackle, and that
is the only thing they should be focused on.

Speaker 4 (37:42):
With a forty year old quarterback coming up, keep an
eye on the Jaguars.

Speaker 7 (37:45):
Darius Williams played really well for them last year and
they cut him just to open cap space. They just
feel like a team that's either all or nothing, and
they feel like they might be pretty noisy in the
next week.

Speaker 5 (38:00):
Well done, nailed.

Speaker 4 (38:01):
Uh. After the break truth serum for NFL figures read
welcome back.

Speaker 1 (38:13):
So this is this is crazy.

Speaker 3 (38:16):
You guys might may have noticed that I have this
weird propensity to be randomly connected to well known figures
across very Yeah, I do, fine, guys, popped up a
connection to like you two, to a soccer team, to

(38:37):
you know, here and there. It just pops up. Not
not anything that through ambition. It just happens. Sometimes it's cool, uh,
The latest example of course being Sheilin Patel, new owner
of West brom Bling bling Let's go.

Speaker 1 (38:52):
Boing Boying, isn't it bling bling?

Speaker 4 (38:53):
With We're new? We're new in our fandom cash money Records.

Speaker 6 (38:58):
John was like, is boy boying something on the pod
that they do?

Speaker 8 (39:02):
And it's like, not that I know of, not yet, but.

Speaker 3 (39:05):
Yeah, not bling blaining Boing Boying is Uh, it's a
it's a West brom.

Speaker 7 (39:10):
Thing, right, so maybe maybe we can bring bling bling back?

Speaker 4 (39:15):
Though did it leave?

Speaker 1 (39:16):
It's a jam?

Speaker 3 (39:17):
Okay, So what's the song? Oh, the song itself. We
can't play songs on this show. But anyway, uh So, anyway,
I got another and this one's really weird, and I'm
surprised I never brought him up before.

Speaker 4 (39:28):
His name is vill Helm von Tuffelhammer. He's a prominent
it's not.

Speaker 8 (39:34):
A Sessler character that's made up.

Speaker 5 (39:36):
What is happening.

Speaker 3 (39:36):
He is a prominent doctor and scientist of the unknown origins,
and he has I've been made aware.

Speaker 4 (39:43):
Because we caught up recently. He's developed a serum.

Speaker 1 (39:47):
It should be.

Speaker 3 (39:50):
In very early clinical trials because we really don't know.

Speaker 4 (39:56):
What the effects are long term or even midterm or.

Speaker 1 (39:59):
Even sounds dangerous.

Speaker 3 (40:01):
However, Willhelm isn't thought to be doing very well, and
I and I think he's basically fast tracking it because
he's trying to you know, beat the you know, the
big deadline in the sky.

Speaker 4 (40:14):
Put it that way.

Speaker 8 (40:14):
Well, this serum cure himself, cure whatever is ailing him.

Speaker 3 (40:18):
I don't think truth is gonna help him physiologically. I
think he's I'm just saying he's getting older. I don't
know him well, but it's just like one of those
weird connections. So anyway, he get this patented, let's get
the swinging rolling.

Speaker 4 (40:30):
Yeah, he wants to see his life saving.

Speaker 5 (40:32):
Done that with other serums in the past.

Speaker 4 (40:33):
Let's get this thing rolling, is right. Yeah.

Speaker 3 (40:35):
So so with that said, he's going to come in
here a little bit later.

Speaker 4 (40:45):
Let's be aware. Okay, will hem is ball line Rosenthal.
Here we go.

Speaker 3 (40:50):
Let's get into it. We're gonna have some key figures
in the NFL, all right, free agencies coming up, a
new season's coming up, crazy offseason. Uh, and kind of
a press conference here, and hopefully we'll get some real answers.

Speaker 4 (41:06):
Got it? Yes? Is that? Are we good? Great? I
think that makes sense. All right, let's do. Let's start.

Speaker 3 (41:12):
Let's welcome in someone that everyone knows well, Baker Mayfield.
So Baker Mayfield obviously has a big has a big week.

Speaker 4 (41:21):
Coming up for him.

Speaker 3 (41:22):
So if you want to open up the floor, two questions,
go for it.

Speaker 4 (41:26):
Uh Yeah, sorry, how about this Baker?

Speaker 7 (41:29):
You you said you know, through maybe your intermediates, there
was some reporting that you you wanted to have a
chance to win a championship. Would you be willing to,
you know, maybe take less money to stay in Tampa
after they helped resurrect your career here.

Speaker 4 (41:47):
You know, it's been incredible run in Tampa. Uh.

Speaker 3 (41:53):
You know, they welcomed me in last year and gave
me an opportunity to start, and so that means a
lot to me.

Speaker 4 (41:59):
And I love it there. My family loves it there.

Speaker 3 (42:03):
So hometown discounts I think they call him. I don't
know about that, but I just I'm very excited to
be part of the.

Speaker 4 (42:10):
Free agency process. But also I love Tampa.

Speaker 2 (42:14):
Thanks Baker inside this fire, He's a miracle truth serum.

Speaker 4 (42:25):
They say it does not.

Speaker 2 (42:26):
Exist, but I assure you my lab has proven them
a wrong.

Speaker 4 (42:39):
I've got to stop smoking.

Speaker 5 (42:42):
Mmm that could be a fact.

Speaker 3 (42:44):
Uh oh, listen, man, I'm terrified. M Baker Me, I'm terrified.
I know I stumbled into the perfect place to spend
the rest of my NFL year as a place where
I could be myself, place where I could be a
slightly less productive, but more likable version of Derek Carr.

(43:06):
The people of Tampa they're okay with me being me,
So just let me chill here for another five or
six years. I'll throw for like thirty five hundred yards
and twenty six touchdowns, will go eight to nine or
nine and eight every year, ups and downs.

Speaker 4 (43:22):
But like it the NFC South, and this is my speed.

Speaker 3 (43:25):
And even the idea of going to Atlanta, which obviously
is also in the NFC South, where there are actual
real expectations to improve after some failure there at the
quarterback position, I'm not into that. I'm just not into
the pressure anymore. I was the number one overall pick,
you might remember, of the Cleveland Browns. I had some
success there. Do you remember after I won a playoff

(43:48):
game there? The next year, a lot of people were
picking the Browns with me as the quarterback to go
to the Super Bowl. Do you have any idea the
amount of pressure to be in that spot. I've been there,
I've done that.

Speaker 4 (44:01):
I'm out.

Speaker 5 (44:03):
I'm done. And don't even get me started on.

Speaker 3 (44:05):
This report out there, this forcacta report about me going
to the Patriots. I'd rather you throw a harpoon clear
through my chest then go and freeze up in New
England and get my ass kicked for four months. No man,
NFC south the bucks. That's my speed. Let's get it done.

Speaker 5 (44:25):
That classic Baker confidence that we've come to know is
in full force apparently within well.

Speaker 7 (44:31):
I have a question you at this press conference, Baker, like,
do you see a future as a big time endorser
moving forward? You say you want the less pressure, but
it isn't a big contract going to be a lot
of pressure no matter where it is. And do you
want those progressive ads back? Because you're hell of an actor.

Speaker 3 (44:51):
Thank you for bringing up the progressive ads because that's
what this is ultimately about. I need to be just
good enough to hang around for about a half dozen
year to re establish my brand fully with the progressive
ads being my main goal. To get back into that game,
same ad campaign, but this time and that dopey stadium
with the pirate ship.

Speaker 4 (45:09):
That's what's it.

Speaker 5 (45:10):
Let's let's imagine a world bigger where that ship has
sailed into the distance.

Speaker 1 (45:14):
You're about to become a dad. Congratulations all that.

Speaker 5 (45:17):
Are you doing the kind of parent thing where like
you're kind of downshifting the focus on career and you're
trying to do the safest possible thing, Like this doesn't
feel like the Baker that I've known in the past
where it's like you got the chip on the shoulder,
you're shooting for the stars.

Speaker 1 (45:30):
Instead you're just Tampa works, Tampa No.

Speaker 4 (45:32):
And I understand. And Mark, good to see you.

Speaker 3 (45:34):
I know you have an affinity for me, even though
I'm not seen as like a major financial man with
major financial cloud.

Speaker 4 (45:42):
I'm incredibly rich.

Speaker 3 (45:44):
The kid is cool and uh and I got a
wife and an O pair and all sorts of help.
I'm all about football and making money right now. So
that's that's the answer. I'm but it's just hanging around
and I and I think that's that's enough for me.
But thank you for having me on. I don't really
want to be here, but it was part of.

Speaker 4 (46:02):
My media engagement.

Speaker 6 (46:04):
Just one more, one more quickly, Yes, where are you
on the creamsicle jerseys and the actual canons that are
fired from that ship?

Speaker 4 (46:15):
Where am I?

Speaker 8 (46:16):
Yeah? Just in your headspace right now?

Speaker 3 (46:18):
They're fine. Yeah, it's like the six out of ten
in my mind, they're fine. Okay, all right, thank you Baker,
all right, there he goes.

Speaker 4 (46:26):
Thanks.

Speaker 3 (46:27):
I feel it's so refreshment to hear much truth, to
hear how people feel.

Speaker 7 (46:32):
I'm beginning to think. What's his name again? The doctor?

Speaker 3 (46:36):
Uh, doctor will Wilhelm von Tufflhammer.

Speaker 7 (46:39):
His the efficacy of his injection was incredible and immediate
when he came, when he came in that room.

Speaker 5 (46:47):
After effects, we do the side effects, you know, we
don't We won't know for a long time.

Speaker 4 (46:53):
All right, Colin, who's the next person coming in?

Speaker 8 (46:54):
Okay? Next person is drawed Mayo.

Speaker 3 (46:58):
Rod Mayo, Wow, new head coach of the New England Patriots. Yes,
mister Mayo, is I guess we'll start here? You feel
like you have big shoes to fill? Is there an
intimidation level in terms of replacing a giant like Belichick?

Speaker 8 (47:17):
Well?

Speaker 6 (47:17):
If I was someone who got intimidated, I wouldn't be here.
My confidence has brought me to this spot in New England,
and I feel really good about where we're at.

Speaker 8 (47:29):
The future ahead, the transition that we're going to go
through as well.

Speaker 2 (47:33):
Ah, I see you ah afraid.

Speaker 4 (47:38):
Of me, my dear, that is not to be afraid?

Speaker 8 (47:42):
Are you sure? Are you okay? Am I going to
get whatever.

Speaker 4 (47:51):
You have to be afraid of? Just a little peach?

Speaker 8 (47:55):
Sure?

Speaker 4 (47:56):
Yes, that's right. Let's this them, dude, it's bidding.

Speaker 3 (48:04):
As you were saying, mister Mayl.

Speaker 6 (48:08):
Man, listen, I don't know what was in that injection,
but I'll tell you what.

Speaker 8 (48:14):
I've been having some night terrors.

Speaker 6 (48:15):
I've been having night terirs every night, and it's Belichick
and I mean, I thought that we were all on
the same page when I said that we're ready to
burn some cash. Apparently that was just me that was
ready to burn some cash. But I think the entire
organization should be ready to burn some cash and free agency.
We need to make a lot of moves around here,

(48:36):
and if this is my first season with New England,
it better be successful. We need some wide receivers, We
probably need a tight end.

Speaker 5 (48:44):
We need so.

Speaker 6 (48:45):
Many things that I can't I don't even have enough
time to talk about it right now. The legacy that
has been left behind those shoes are so hard to fill.
I'm not sure how it's gonna get done, but I'm
just crossing my fingers at this point and hoping that
it all goes well.

Speaker 5 (48:59):
Well. Do you feel like there's extra pressure on you
to even be anything close to Bill Belichick or are
you kind of writing and willing to be your own guy.
You've talked about a culture change. It sounds like your
head's you know, a miss right now.

Speaker 8 (49:11):
You know, I would be lying if I didn't say that.

Speaker 6 (49:15):
I felt very stressed out and a lot of anxiety,
and every conversation seems like the world is maybe like
crumbling down. But I do see a lot of hope
ahead too, and I'm really positive about where this team
is heading. And Elliott Wolf, I'm hoping that he wants
to burn some cash because that's really the main priority here.

Speaker 8 (49:33):
We have eighty eight million dollars in cap Spain.

Speaker 6 (49:36):
But yeah, I'm I'm real stressed out about what the
future holds in the AFC East and in Foxborough in general.

Speaker 4 (49:43):
Guys, you're kind of set up to fail.

Speaker 6 (49:45):
It almost sounds like I hope not I hope that
I wasn't brought in here to fail, Dan Hansis, because
that would be real bad about.

Speaker 4 (49:52):
It, real bad.

Speaker 7 (49:53):
You really gave you know, you know, a recovering Patriots
fan like me some contentvidence with the way you carried
yourself in your opening press conferences. And this change has
me worried. Even the phrase burning cash has me worried.
Any concern about for instance, a couple of years ago,
the Patriots went into free agency, they spent a lot

(50:16):
of money, everyone was all excited and then they got
like three solid years of Hunter Henry and not much else.
Like can you really fix a team in free agency?

Speaker 6 (50:26):
You know, Greg, That's something that we're gonna find out
very soon, and we sure hope. So it seems like
at times that it can't get any worse, that it
can only go up from here after what's happened with
Mac and how Bill sort of left the state of
things here in New England. But we're gonna have to
just hope and pray and if you have a blessed mother,

(50:48):
put her in the window.

Speaker 4 (50:50):
All right, Well, thank you very much, mister Mayo.

Speaker 8 (50:52):
No problem. What was in this?

Speaker 4 (50:54):
Give me a drink?

Speaker 3 (50:56):
Yeah, let's get them hydrated immediately that was concidered.

Speaker 4 (51:00):
Let's get them off their feet and hydrated.

Speaker 8 (51:02):
I could feel his stress.

Speaker 4 (51:06):
The anxiety was pouring off Girard as well.

Speaker 8 (51:08):
Totally, totally all from Gerard.

Speaker 7 (51:13):
Up next, Greg is who uh, Brian Dables is going
to be?

Speaker 3 (51:18):
Yes the Giants entering his third year as head coach.
First year, Well, let me ask you, Brian, first year
could not have gone better? I mean not only did
the Giants make the playoffs. That was a surprise, you wan,
I was the man. Yeah, you want to host in
New York. You were supposed to be, you were supposed
to win, You're supposed to have a good second season

(51:40):
as well. It didn't go out. It didn't go that way.
So where where's your headspace at? Do you believe in
this team getting back on the winning track in twenty four?

Speaker 1 (51:47):
Yeah?

Speaker 7 (51:48):
You know, we always looked at this as a three
year building plan. That's what you do when you come in.
Me and Joe Shane from from Buffalo, we've been slowly
adding pieces in point towards year three is when it's
really art.

Speaker 3 (52:04):
Ah.

Speaker 4 (52:05):
Yes, my next patient, hold out your arm please? Is
this front hurt very much? Wait?

Speaker 1 (52:17):
Is this stracula?

Speaker 7 (52:20):
Excuse me?

Speaker 4 (52:22):
You may feel a bit strange forever.

Speaker 5 (52:25):
I'm not sure this.

Speaker 4 (52:26):
Guy but trusted. Yeah, he's no fighting the effects. As
you were saying, Brian, get handkerchief. Oh god.

Speaker 7 (52:42):
And I haven't felt like this since the NFL Honors
a couple of years ago.

Speaker 4 (52:49):
Remember that was great.

Speaker 7 (52:51):
I was a good old days, top of the world.
Now I'm just uh, collecting a paycheck. What what are
we doing here.

Speaker 8 (52:59):
Brian, Do you have any regrets about signing Daniel Jones
last season over Saquon Barkley.

Speaker 7 (53:07):
I mean regrets. I never wanted to do it in
the first place. This was all from upstairs.

Speaker 4 (53:11):
We got our headline.

Speaker 7 (53:14):
Good job coming, oh the Tiffany franchise of New York,
the New York Giants. We treat our quarterbacks well as
long as they vaguely resemble Eli Manning. Why did we
give him this contract? We're locked into it. It's forty
million dollars. I got Joe Shane here, I thought he was.
He said, we're gonna be like Buffalo. You know what
Buffalo did their first few years. They signed a bunch

(53:37):
of great free agents and made a bunch of great
draft picks. Who we got, We got Darren Waller. Are
you playing for me this year? Who's on our defense?
It took me half the season just to get over
Wink Martindale trying to bury me to reporters, I'm a
I'm a mess right now.

Speaker 4 (53:54):
Give me some players. Who's our defensive court here?

Speaker 1 (53:56):
Literally?

Speaker 4 (53:57):
Does anyone know who are defensive coordinator? Is Shane Bowen?

Speaker 1 (54:02):
Does he have a wiki page?

Speaker 5 (54:04):
While we have you in the state. I have to
ask you, would you consider yourself the bigger small spoon?

Speaker 4 (54:10):
Ah? Very good? Have you seen me? Of course I'm
the big spoon.

Speaker 1 (54:13):
I'm able.

Speaker 3 (54:15):
Come on, I mean you would have thought you're What
do you think we got Keevon Thibodeau. I mean he
seems like a very outspoken player and productive, no doubt.

Speaker 4 (54:23):
But you know, what do you think about him?

Speaker 7 (54:24):
Ultimately got good guy. He was a good pick, nice
pass rusher. We need more people like him. I also
like his entire just media strategy. He seems to have
like a great feel of like who do.

Speaker 1 (54:38):
I talk to?

Speaker 7 (54:39):
Who do I you know, kind of make my media friend?
And who do I consider an enemy?

Speaker 4 (54:43):
Like that guy? Anything else you'd like to add, Brian, I.

Speaker 1 (54:47):
Just need players.

Speaker 7 (54:48):
Tuon was like one of our only great players, right, Okay, Okay,
we got Andrew Thomas, we got Saquon.

Speaker 4 (54:58):
And so we've got two players.

Speaker 1 (55:00):
Right.

Speaker 7 (55:00):
Oh, so let's not keep one of those two. Oh
we got Dexter Lawrence. Okay, but that was a Dave
Gettleman pick. Give me some picks, Give me some players.
Joe Shane, I want to see it because I'm just
out there coaching my ass off, turning Darius Slayton into
a wide receiver one and one Del Robinson.

Speaker 4 (55:16):
I need some more players, Butcher record this year. You gotta go.

Speaker 1 (55:24):
Not feeling good right now.

Speaker 7 (55:25):
If we can nail the next few weeks, maybe we
can scratch out eight or nine wins. But we got
to nail the next couple of weeks. If Joe helps me,
I'm doing a great job coaching Brian.

Speaker 3 (55:34):
We want to apologize in advance, both for the potential
devastating after effects of that injection and also what the
New York media is about to do to you.

Speaker 1 (55:43):
Wait, this is public.

Speaker 4 (55:44):
Bye bye.

Speaker 8 (55:46):
There he goes, sounds like he needs vacation.

Speaker 4 (55:51):
Vacation, all right, Mark, who else is joining us? All right?

Speaker 5 (55:57):
I am a part of the Fox number one broadcasting team.
Greg Olsen?

Speaker 4 (56:02):
Oh very all right? I mean this is a and
he's doing.

Speaker 3 (56:06):
Greg, You've really proven yourself to be one of the
very best in the game.

Speaker 4 (56:11):
Or excuse me, yeah, Greg, you looked at him.

Speaker 5 (56:15):
I know, well is Greg?

Speaker 4 (56:17):
He threw me off.

Speaker 3 (56:18):
Greg Olsen, you have proven yourself to be at the
top of your game. Of course, how does it feel
this Tom Brady situation? Hanging over everything as we enter
a new year.

Speaker 5 (56:28):
You know, you know I've been doing this for a
certain amount of time. I've grown to love the job.
I would say that number one, I've always been a
team player where it was on the field at Fox
like I have a philosophical approach to just go out
there and call the best, the very best game that
you possibly He's.

Speaker 3 (56:44):
Just van.

Speaker 2 (56:49):
It is still still true locked inside your brain, be
campbulling out.

Speaker 3 (56:58):
I go on Tom Brady lotenge. You need more than
a lotenge, my friend? Can people not see the parallel
that I. I came in as an unknown uh into
the broadcasting booth, and I have been a crystal clear
technical lighthouse from the word go and you got Tom Brady.

Speaker 1 (57:21):
I'm sorry you start? Did you say a crystal clear
absolute light?

Speaker 5 (57:24):
Can I speak about football? Got some I teach people
about football in a way that you know what you
Just because you played quarterback doesn't mean it works. Tom
Brady spent his whole career telling us and whining about
where he was drafted and who he became agree greatest
quarterback of all time? But I just would like to
reform you that go back to someone like Johnny unitis

(57:45):
that had that his time, and the greatest quarterback career
came in and failed in the booth famously. How about
Bill Walsh, you ever one thought was the smartest coach
of all time? Super Ultra bor Fest newsfest on air.
You tell me one time that Tom Brady is ever
truly made you laugh because of a genuine attachment to wit.
And we're just gonna come in here and throw me

(58:06):
down to the Joe Davis, Darryl Johnston spot number two.
You're gonna apparently with someone else, and Tom Brady is
gonna just get handed this massive multimillion dollar deal And
people everywhere are going to be saying, what happened to
the great Burkhart Olsen pairing that would have been here
and should have been here for twenty five years. This
will go down as the biggest mistake in network television history.

Speaker 6 (58:29):
Wow, Craig Olson, Uh, when you think about Tom Brady,
and obviously you've really just outlined how you feel about him,
But how quickly do you think he will be able
to catch on to this craft?

Speaker 8 (58:40):
Having gone through this yourself?

Speaker 5 (58:42):
Well, I don't know. Did I take to need an
entire year to sit in my den crafting concept, how
I might announce No, I just went and did it
right away, So how long will it take him to
catch on? So far the track record is not promising.

Speaker 7 (58:54):
You literally were still in the NFL the first time
that you did it. Of course, as you know, I
think it was like a bye week for.

Speaker 1 (59:03):
I've always been.

Speaker 7 (59:03):
Impressed with you, Greg Fellow, Greg not Greg Olsen. You
are Greg Olson. We saw you in Las Vegas. You
just look like a man who's a good time one
at life and is always winning. How does it sit
with you to lose this power struggle? And will you
respond by trying to get a number one job maybe at.

Speaker 4 (59:25):
Another network like Amazon?

Speaker 5 (59:28):
I Greg, I appreciate the question, Greg, Greg Rosenthal, anything
is on the table. I do recall seeing the couple
of you in Vegas, and I think that you noticed
that I was beautiful and powerful in that casino, that
I stood out as a human bee. I will not
I will not stop being that, whether it's at Fox
or elsewhere. Parts unknown, white cis male hetero. I was

(59:51):
taken aback by You're almost a statue of a man
just standing in that casino, and it was an honor
to run into you. And say hello to you. And
the Mark Sessler character who's not here also like stood
out as someone that really understands broadcasting, like the two
of you, and I think you can see that. My
argument is, uh, Christine, it is powerful. It is based
in reality.

Speaker 8 (01:00:11):
A technical lighthouse, technical lighthouse.

Speaker 4 (01:00:14):
Absolutely well, good luck to you.

Speaker 5 (01:00:17):
I don't need luck.

Speaker 4 (01:00:19):
I love it. I love that guy, I absolutely love
that all the time.

Speaker 3 (01:00:24):
Well, let's see how the body and mind reacts.

Speaker 6 (01:00:28):
How long does it stay with you?

Speaker 7 (01:00:32):
This could be a whole new like seven to four
crew wraps coming in Greg Olson.

Speaker 3 (01:00:38):
After this, Greg stated efficacy off the charts, obviously, But.

Speaker 5 (01:00:43):
We were I thought we were assured that we'll be
safe forever.

Speaker 3 (01:00:46):
There's no questions, no sorry, you could leave Greg and
and good luck you and just realize this was for
science ultimately, and we'll see how plays out. All right,
let's take a break and we'll be right back. All right,
welcome back. A little bit of news that just came
across here. The bills are working to get under the cap.

(01:01:11):
This from rap sheet and they make the move to release. Oh,
I thought we were done with the good doctor.

Speaker 8 (01:01:17):
He's still here.

Speaker 3 (01:01:19):
He thought he'd be at the hospital by now he's
interrupting the breaking news.

Speaker 8 (01:01:22):
How much serum does he have?

Speaker 2 (01:01:24):
I understand you ought to be a very special case.

Speaker 4 (01:01:31):
Zess Dog.

Speaker 2 (01:01:35):
Oh yes, mister sysed dog, you are so mysterious until
my true serum is injected in your veins.

Speaker 4 (01:01:48):
That is the good doctor.

Speaker 8 (01:01:51):
Every time.

Speaker 3 (01:01:52):
He's gotta stop laughing.

Speaker 4 (01:01:55):
Ah, come on, man, it's cough ridiculous.

Speaker 3 (01:02:02):
Wow we got we got the serum and Sessler. Wow,
what an opportunity this is? Is not feel workplace fair?

Speaker 4 (01:02:10):
Does anybody want to do you have a question?

Speaker 1 (01:02:12):
I mean, I would love you to start.

Speaker 7 (01:02:14):
Mark has turned to Ash and Mark, Yeah, I guess
I'll just start with a little bit of a softball.
How are you feeling right now after the serum? What
are you afraid of?

Speaker 1 (01:02:26):
What are you free?

Speaker 5 (01:02:28):
Yeah? I don't know what's just been injected into my body,
but I am starting to feel concerned about just the
one mental processing over you.

Speaker 4 (01:02:35):
I got one. Do you want to be here right now.

Speaker 5 (01:02:41):
For another ten minutes? Tops?

Speaker 1 (01:02:43):
Like, in what sense here on the earth? Longer on
the earth?

Speaker 3 (01:02:48):
Do you have any plans to leave the country in
the next six weeks?

Speaker 5 (01:02:55):
Well, when I make plans like they just come out
of thin air. So it's a total possibility. Not currently
on the map. There's a work trip to Mexico with
a bunch of people that we were not invited to
because we're too well, that's true, not even approach.

Speaker 8 (01:03:06):
Okay, well then you can you can plan your own one.

Speaker 6 (01:03:09):
Where would you go if you could go anywhere right
this minute after the show. Work doesn't even matter, it
doesn't even exist anymore. Money doesn't matter, it doesn't exist.
Where would you go in Mexico or worldwide anywhere? But
you have to decide in the next couple seconds, and
you have to stay.

Speaker 1 (01:03:24):
There, go to Belgium.

Speaker 8 (01:03:25):
You have to go to Belgium and never return nice
and never return like this.

Speaker 4 (01:03:29):
Is an opportunity for you right here?

Speaker 3 (01:03:30):
Yeah, times jointing out the serum only has a half
life of minutes.

Speaker 4 (01:03:33):
Okay, your Brown's fandom, are you just gonna.

Speaker 1 (01:03:37):
Keep they?

Speaker 4 (01:03:38):
I wish you would. Let's let's be real.

Speaker 5 (01:03:40):
I need certain things to change, but I felt it
during the Flacco run. I really did. And the change
I needed happened during the Flacco run, and it's I
can return to anything. You're I'm about forgiving them, about
rethinking certain things, but certain things they've done made it
tough for me to sign up on it. When you
have to talk about it all the time on a show.

Speaker 4 (01:04:01):
You're back, No, notarily No.

Speaker 5 (01:04:04):
I'm like, I'm like outside the door, kind of looking
through a door with a little.

Speaker 3 (01:04:09):
You were back though, like ye drafting them week after
week before Fla is meeting.

Speaker 4 (01:04:14):
It's toughest match.

Speaker 5 (01:04:15):
Yeah, Blaco, if Flacco, if there's there is an interest
between flat doctor.

Speaker 1 (01:04:19):
Bill help, you have met your match.

Speaker 7 (01:04:20):
Okay, before that serum runs out, let's go like me,
Greg ROSENTHALP, Yeah, pros.

Speaker 1 (01:04:27):
Cons, give me some give me.

Speaker 5 (01:04:29):
You have been a genuine friend to me.

Speaker 1 (01:04:32):
You have.

Speaker 5 (01:04:32):
You're someone that I've looked up to from a career angle,
and you're I think when we go out on the
town sometimes we go to like our places where we
used to go with Wes, like we have a great time.

Speaker 7 (01:04:42):
For some reason, I'm more interested in the cons. Frankly,
only the cons. That's just says something about me.

Speaker 3 (01:04:48):
The doctor has met as mat truly all right, I
think it wore off now I'm sorry doing that again that.

Speaker 5 (01:04:57):
I would say from what I recall of it, Uh,
you know, they weren't all softballs, but you could have
gone you could have asked tougher questions that would have
put me in a road.

Speaker 3 (01:05:06):
It already felt kind of like a frankly a dick
move to pump this potential poison into you.

Speaker 5 (01:05:11):
So yeah, I didn't want to like double down. No,
I think you were all very gentle to me.

Speaker 7 (01:05:15):
Actually, the look on your face and everyone should check
out our YouTube. I don't know if I guess they
can't really like zoom in on their phone, but the
look on your face when in the real estate figured
Aaron was coming it was gonna haunt me, you could, I.

Speaker 5 (01:05:28):
Didn't know was.

Speaker 8 (01:05:31):
Perfect.

Speaker 3 (01:05:31):
I mean a good doctor that we've created such a
real feel world that it did sense for just a
flash that you thought it was actually happening.

Speaker 5 (01:05:42):
Yeah, because I yes, I did.

Speaker 6 (01:05:44):
I also terrified that Dan called for a doctor for
the Doctor at one point during the show too, the.

Speaker 4 (01:05:50):
Little Doctor on Doctor.

Speaker 3 (01:05:52):
It's like when Dave Damashek is fascinated by tow trucks
being towed by tow trucks.

Speaker 4 (01:05:57):
What it's a thing, all right?

Speaker 3 (01:06:01):
Yeah, back to the breaking news, and we needed to
get this one in the show because you know, Eric
Roberts demanded it, but it's important. The Bills are working
to get under the cap, so they say goodbye to
safety Jordan Poyer. His cap number was seven and a
half million. This is from rap sheet. So Poyer is
he's a piece of that defense and a pretty big

(01:06:24):
one Gregy and now they let's see if maybe he
rejoins a team on a different deal.

Speaker 7 (01:06:29):
But he's headed to free agency. Where's he on the
one on one good question. He's an older safety that's
not helping him. There's a lot of safeties out there.
I think though this is more significant, you know, and
Bill's fans will get this, But for the average fan,
like to me, this Bill's run starts with Jordan Poyer
and Micah Hyde, which is interesting. And I we were

(01:06:52):
just listening to the press conference of Dable of what
a great job the Bills did when McDermott got there,
and part of it was they got these culture setters,
like right off the bat in this tandem. And they
did a press conference after the last playoff game for
the Bills, and I thought that might have been a
sign that like they were on their way out. Micah
Hyde is reportedly considering retiring he is on the one
O one, But to me, it might be a little

(01:07:14):
bit of an end of an era for the Bills,
and they're sneaking in a lot of cap cap struggles,
so there might be more big moves to.

Speaker 3 (01:07:21):
Open an opportunity for Damar hammil In. There is he contract?
I mean he obviously he's.

Speaker 9 (01:07:26):
Pissed off Bills fans because he went on he put
out a quote saying that it would be the highlight
of his life to retire with the Steelers.

Speaker 1 (01:07:32):
He's a pit guy, you guys.

Speaker 4 (01:07:34):
So he's under contract currently? Is he said to be
a free agent or are.

Speaker 5 (01:07:37):
We allowed We're now to be allowed to be upset
with him at this?

Speaker 9 (01:07:40):
Oh dude, Well, Bills fans are pissed. They're like, all good,
good Rid and see you later. Because he said, like, yeah,
it would be like a free agent to be I'm
not entirely sure.

Speaker 4 (01:07:48):
That's a very strange thing to say.

Speaker 1 (01:07:50):
I don't think contract.

Speaker 4 (01:07:51):
In his probably best case scenario, he'd be like a
third season.

Speaker 1 (01:07:54):
But he's a pit guy. He went to pay. He's
from Pittsburgh, so that makes sense.

Speaker 3 (01:07:57):
But yeah, did doctor will Helm Vah tough old Hammer
get to we don't need to.

Speaker 4 (01:08:02):
Let's just let's leave.

Speaker 3 (01:08:04):
I won't see, Like, we don't need to be testing
DeMar Hamlin's body for this.

Speaker 5 (01:08:08):
It's fine for this team that like still considers themselves
like a super Bowl contender. They're forty two like before
this move, they're forty two million in the red. No
team as a bigger cap hell situation. I think they
have tougher decisions ahead.

Speaker 7 (01:08:20):
That Von Miller deal really hurt them, And I don't
think they're gonna get rid of von Miller necessarily because
he has so much guaranteed money. You might as well
just see what he looks like in August. If you're
not saving any money by getting rid of him.

Speaker 6 (01:08:32):
I don't know what they're going to do with the
safety position. Like those two have been there for seven years.

Speaker 1 (01:08:36):
It's a DeMar Hamlin is not under contract.

Speaker 4 (01:08:39):
There you go circling back to.

Speaker 7 (01:08:42):
Oh, after this year, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, So this
year one more year tuffle Hammer got him.

Speaker 3 (01:08:48):
Yeah, because the I guess the Broncos, knowing the devastation
of the cap hit, could have done the same thing
with Russ right, because like in the way that von Miller,
if they had the power. They would say bye, but
they're like, we're gonna get killed these because he doesn't
like Russell.

Speaker 7 (01:09:03):
Well, no, because they would have owed him even more
guaranteed money in a.

Speaker 1 (01:09:07):
Couple of weeks. So that's why.

Speaker 7 (01:09:08):
So they can not the case with von that contract
which I had one hundred and forty or one hundred
and twenty million.

Speaker 4 (01:09:14):
Guaranteed for us.

Speaker 7 (01:09:15):
No, Vonn's getting that money either way, and it doesn't
really help them cap space excess. So they might as
they still might cut him, I think, just because it's
not working.

Speaker 1 (01:09:23):
But the off the field stuff has.

Speaker 3 (01:09:25):
Also tarnished him more. So there's just some layers to
the Vaughan thing. All right, big year coming up for
those Buffalo Bill.

Speaker 4 (01:09:33):
Diggs is kind of a question Marion lot going on? Yo?
What ark big year coming up?

Speaker 5 (01:09:39):
Oh?

Speaker 3 (01:09:39):
Yeah, about a truth serum to a father to be
because there is I found, for all the incredible amount
of excitement and anticipation when you're becoming a parent, there
is that other stuff like, oh my life is never
going to be the same. I'm gonna miss hanging out
with my boys and you know, being free. You steer

(01:10:01):
clear of the good doctor. Yeah, we don't need your
wife doesn't want to hear that. Eric seems relatively sunny
about the whole.

Speaker 9 (01:10:07):
Yeah, I'm older, I'm actually I dude, I can't wait
to have the Sorry the babies at home, excuse to
like not have to go out with people?

Speaker 4 (01:10:15):
A perfect man.

Speaker 1 (01:10:18):
Wait, you know ladies and gentlemen, the perfect man.

Speaker 3 (01:10:21):
Out of applause, All right, funk. Have you done any
behind the glass? Have you done any child search on?
Have you done any research yet on the I am
afraid of no bears modification to your unfortunate tattoo as
you everything?

Speaker 5 (01:10:39):
Okay, some liquid guys, my bad, Now we're good. I
have not actually, but I figured, okay, it won't be
too hard.

Speaker 4 (01:10:46):
It's a circle on the line. How about what do
we think is? Are we going to cover this? We'll
cover this well. Greg City had a lead.

Speaker 3 (01:10:52):
Oh yeah, do you want to hook him up with
that tattoo artist area tattoo artists?

Speaker 1 (01:10:57):
Yeah, that doesn't sound too expensive. I don't think it
would be too We'll cover it.

Speaker 4 (01:11:00):
We're gonna cover it. Colleen's gonna che.

Speaker 8 (01:11:02):
You're gonna do it on the show.

Speaker 4 (01:11:04):
Can we get the artist in here?

Speaker 5 (01:11:05):
I don't know, I'm not looking at I think the
answer is definitely no.

Speaker 1 (01:11:12):
You can't get We're.

Speaker 6 (01:11:13):
Gonna have people call in, We're gonna be giving away tattoos.

Speaker 4 (01:11:16):
You can't be doing tattoos here.

Speaker 1 (01:11:18):
That's not how it works.

Speaker 3 (01:11:19):
Hey, this is Anthony from Rego Park. I don't think
you should touch a tattoo. It's part of his legacy
as a man.

Speaker 7 (01:11:24):
There's health regulation and listen and all sorts of stuff.

Speaker 4 (01:11:30):
We'll have a person a journey.

Speaker 1 (01:11:34):
Emilyler. Check her out.

Speaker 4 (01:11:35):
She's great, nice plug. All right? Anything else?

Speaker 1 (01:11:39):

Speaker 3 (01:11:40):
Yeah, look that one up, Emily Effler.

Speaker 4 (01:11:45):
I like it. I like all right. We are back
on Thursday. Colleen, you've said it all.

Speaker 6 (01:11:49):
I truly have today. I think so today compared to
any other show.

Speaker 4 (01:11:54):
Is there a reason why?

Speaker 3 (01:11:55):
And I don't like to do the Greg thing and
look at other people's laptops. But you have what looks
to be an aerial overhead, almost like a YouTube spy plane.
Look at an airport or an air force base. What
are you doing? Get the serum back in here? What
is happening?

Speaker 8 (01:12:10):
This is just a screen saver, Oh my god. And
it's actually in Belgium.

Speaker 3 (01:12:15):
They're all listening to us now.

Speaker 6 (01:12:18):
It's a Belgian airport. Is my screen saver right now?
For some reason, I like planes.

Speaker 4 (01:12:23):
You guys know that I don't have to get see
IA on this one. FBI. All right, we'll be back Thursday.

Speaker 3 (01:12:29):
