Good Morning Football is the production of the NFL in
partnership with iHeartRadio.

Speaker 2 (00:22):
Good Morning, Hello, Hello, everybody, Welcome in final hour of
Good Morning Football in the beautiful New York City studio.

Speaker 3 (00:34):
It's Thursday, March twenty eighth. I'm Colleie Wolf.

Speaker 2 (00:36):
Oh inside, Kyle Brant, Jason mccordy, Devin McCarty.

Speaker 3 (00:40):
Do we have any more mccordy's coming in? Who else?
Family members? Extended family? We do?

Speaker 4 (00:44):
We actually do we do.

Speaker 5 (00:45):
Let's good away.

Speaker 6 (00:46):
My mom will be here soon. My older brother will
be here as well. So yeah, we got we got
family coming there.

Speaker 1 (00:51):
Do you know that?

Speaker 7 (00:52):
Guy?

Speaker 3 (00:52):
I'm so excited about that.

Speaker 4 (00:53):
We're not breaking them on the show.

Speaker 6 (00:55):
Why they're not TV ran If if I love my
older brother on the show and we start talking cowboys,
he may not leave the student.

Speaker 5 (01:01):
He got texts?

Speaker 4 (01:02):
You got many ninety, he texted me, Darling. Not many
good takes though. Frustrated, Yeah, frustrating. It's frustrated cowboys fan.

Speaker 5 (01:11):
Yeah, come on, like West of America. Let's get him
in here. There's two seats. We can get that out.

Speaker 8 (01:16):
Harris at Breakfast Yeah that Hey, it's signed for a
little throwers. Okay, So one of the big signings and
free agency sent Derek Henry to Baltimore. Head coach John
Harball spoke to our guy Steve Weich down in Orlando
this week about the impact king Henry.

Speaker 3 (01:35):
We'll have what's the Ravens.

Speaker 9 (01:38):
Just defensively, I mean, just real football. It's one thing
to have a reputation. It's another thing to have challenge
of defending him. You know, just the fact that you've
got to tackle him. He gets ahead of steam going
whether it's in the A gap or outside right. He
took a fake reverse about seventy yards against this last
year in London. You know, you don't forget those things. Hustings.
Let's sings, sting, and they stay stinging for a long time.

(01:59):
So now we respect him. He's he's gonna he's gonna
help us.

Speaker 8 (02:04):
All right, First throwdown more impactful signing Derrick Henry or
another running back Saquon Barkley.

Speaker 6 (02:11):
Well, I like sa Kwon, But have you guys seen
Derek Henry His workouts that he does in the off
season with no shirt on.

Speaker 4 (02:18):
This guy is unbelievable.

Speaker 6 (02:21):
It's crazy, and I looked at it for Philly Saquon's
getting there. DeAndre Swift ran for a thousand yards last year.
Before that, Miles Sanders ran for a thousand yards. Do
you guys know the last running back to lead the
Ravens in rushing yards? Just a running back leading them
in rushing yards? Because it's been Lamar Jackson for a
while now. Last running back Gus Edwards, last thousand yard
running back for the Baltimore Ravens.

Speaker 3 (02:42):
Who yes, been eighty years nice.

Speaker 6 (02:45):
Justin for satt last time, I thought you were gonna
get that.

Speaker 4 (02:51):
So I'm gonna still be Lamar Jackson this year, we
shall see.

Speaker 6 (02:55):
I look at the impact that Derek Henry can have
on this Ravens offense. Where we said it, Lamar Jackson's
been the leading rusher. Don't get it twisted. Derek Henry
was really good last year.

Speaker 4 (03:05):
He only got.

Speaker 6 (03:06):
About fifty six percent of the playing time with them
adding Tajy Spears.

Speaker 4 (03:10):
When when he had the ball in his hands, he
was still going to.

Speaker 6 (03:12):
Work ten touchdowns over one thousand yards rushing. Don't just
assume because this guy's older, that he's gonna slow down.

Speaker 4 (03:18):
He's gonna fall off a cliff. Like I said, you've
seen his offseason.

Speaker 6 (03:21):
Workouts, and we've mentioned it numerous times. I'm sure the
Ravens are tired of hearing it. Their running backs carry
the ball six times in the AFC Championship Game with
Derek Henry on the roster.

Speaker 4 (03:31):
I do not think that happens.

Speaker 6 (03:32):
I think he makes the bigger impact for his team
of the Baltimore Ravens in sakwondos for the Eagles. I
have to disagree with you right there, Jay Mack. We
agreed enough earlier in the show.

Speaker 4 (03:41):
Undone. Listen, this Baltimore team, they continue to run the
ball at a high level.

Speaker 6 (03:47):
They ran the ball more than anybody last year. They
had more yards than anybody last year. So adding Derek Henry, yes,
he's gonna make them better, no doubt about it.

Speaker 4 (03:55):
He's a stud running back. He's done well his whole
time in NFL.

Speaker 6 (03:59):
But it's not gonna make that big of a difference
for Baltimore because it's gonna come down to the same thing.

Speaker 4 (04:04):
They throw the ball and win games.

Speaker 6 (04:06):
Now, this Philadelphia Eagles offense, yes, they've had thousand yard rushers,
but they haven't had a guy like Saquon Barkley that.

Speaker 4 (04:12):
When you step on the field.

Speaker 6 (04:14):
The whole game plan, the whole time is in New
York revolved just around him. You had to stop him
in the running game, you had to stop him in
the passing game. Yes, he's had some injuries, but he
showed last season when he's healthy, he can go win
some football games with DeVito, he can win.

Speaker 4 (04:29):
Some football games with Tyrod Taylor.

Speaker 6 (04:31):
It doesn't matter who you have that quarterback, because he's
that good. And now you add him with Devontae Smith,
with AJ Brown, with Dallas got Her and I see
Colleens over there, she's smiling because she's a Philly fans.

Speaker 4 (04:42):
She's ready to go.

Speaker 6 (04:44):
So I think Barkley going to Philadelphia's gonna be bigger
than Derek Henry going to Baltimore.

Speaker 5 (04:50):
He probably tackled Derek Henry bunch, right, I mean.

Speaker 4 (04:52):
Try is it different hen.

Speaker 6 (04:58):
Yeah, his rookie year, we stomped him in twenty seventeen.

Speaker 4 (05:02):
After that, I think he might have sent Brady practice
the best.

Speaker 5 (05:05):
Yeah.

Speaker 4 (05:06):
Not a fun task though.

Speaker 5 (05:07):
I bet no.

Speaker 1 (05:08):
And I look at this way like Philadelphia, I don't
know what the hell happened at the end of last year.
Like you could have put Walter Payton and Jim Brown
on that team, and that wouldn't have made it. I
don't never mind Saquon, Like that team became the worst
team in the league in like overnight.

Speaker 8 (05:18):
I don't have the Bermuda Triangle of the NFL for something.

Speaker 1 (05:21):
Are they coming back because then they lost Kelsey. I
still trying to figure out what happened to that Eagles team.
They just got smoked by the Buccaneers in the playoffs.
They were so done so I think they need to
change the most and I think, listen, if you want
to get into the football of it, which we probably should,
I think Saquon's gonna catch a ton of balls, like
I really do. I think Saquon has a little more
to prove. I think Saquon is really besieged upon in

(05:41):
New York and like this is I feel like almost
like Saquon's rookie year, Like he has a really good
quarterback and a good line and all that stuff that
we've always wanted him to have.

Speaker 5 (05:49):
The Giants wide receivers have.

Speaker 1 (05:51):
Been pretty ridiculous over the past couple of years, not
in the good way. The Eagles are ridiculous in the
good way. I think it's actually Saquon. I'm fascinated by
Derrick Henry because we always say perfect work ethic meets
perfect genetics, and it's Derek Henry's thirty.

Speaker 5 (06:03):
He can prove the whole thing if he just has this.

Speaker 1 (06:05):
Oh my god, remember Derek was thirty thirty yards hell, Yes,
I love that.

Speaker 5 (06:09):
I think the answer is Saquon.

Speaker 7 (06:11):
Though.

Speaker 8 (06:11):
Saquon, it's like it's a homecoming for him too, so
it sort of feels like a real fresh start for
him everything right now, kind of going back home and his.

Speaker 3 (06:19):
Daughter saying, I mean we're gonna win now.

Speaker 8 (06:21):
Like it does feel like it's going to be special.
And I absolutely don't expect people to be wearing run
the Ball T shirts with Saquon there, and if they are,
then that's a massive problem. But I think in terms
of impact, Derreck Henry is probably more impactful because of
Lamar Jackson always being the leading rusher, just in terms
of team composition. But I mean, when you look at

(06:43):
what Saquon can add, that was a luxury signing. Like
Howie Roseman was looking at the books and he's like,
look what I can do. Now, let me just go
and get this over here. I got the doors, and
now we're cooking with gas. So it just feels like
it's gonna be Saquon in the end, being from Philly,
outside of Philly, playing at home behind that offensive line

(07:04):
arguably one of the best offensive lines in the league,
if not the top one. I know the Lions will
have something to say about that as well, But there's
that one for sure. Okay, let's go to the next one,
Lamar Jackson, We're gonna keep it on the Baltimore theme
here who he was looking for recommendation in the last
couple of days.

Speaker 3 (07:23):
First he tweeted out underrated.

Speaker 8 (07:25):
Scary movies okay cool, and then about nine hours later
he tweeted again underrated sci fi and fantasy movies. So,
judging by the number of comments, Lamar should have plenty
to watch this off season.

Speaker 3 (07:40):
Kind of begs the question here.

Speaker 8 (07:42):
I don't know if you guys are big Friday night
movie people or just movie people in general.

Speaker 3 (07:46):
Kyle, I already know you are.

Speaker 8 (07:49):
I feel like you're still probably talking about done too
to move me.

Speaker 4 (07:53):
We're gonna get a movie.

Speaker 5 (07:54):
I still feel like I'm on a contact high from
that better.

Speaker 3 (07:57):
Friday night movie genre. Is it scary movies? Or sci
fi and.

Speaker 8 (08:02):
Fantasy, whichever you're going don't.

Speaker 3 (08:04):
I don't even know what you said.

Speaker 6 (08:06):
Something you think about it, like, yeah, I'm looking at
this one at Friday night's big. You go home from
this show, you take a nap so you can stay
up and watch a night movie.

Speaker 4 (08:17):
College just brought it up. Done is popping right now.

Speaker 6 (08:20):
So you're talking about what you're looking to see, this
is one hundred percent dooing. I'm planning on it next week.
I'm gonna go to the Mattne you're talking about Friday night,
I'm gonna go see it ten o'clock in the morning,
before everybody's even there.

Speaker 3 (08:32):
You can't even wait for Friday Night.

Speaker 4 (08:34):
You can't even wait for it.

Speaker 6 (08:35):
Gonna take the wife, gonna get that big bowl of
popcorn that Dune is all famous for, and we're gonna
watch this movie and we're gonna have an absolute blast.
So this to me is hands down, has to be
doing has to be doing a sci fi sci fi Yeah,
but I know it's a sci fi movie. But if
it's not done, or you're still going.

Speaker 4 (08:56):
Sci fi, yeah, it's a genre. Yeah yeah, And I'm
talking about right now.

Speaker 6 (08:59):
I'm just making I'm all right, I haven't seen doing
so you're throwing a lot more mccordys.

Speaker 3 (09:05):
We need more mccordy's in here.

Speaker 6 (09:07):
The only answer is wrong because now you're going matinee
and all of that.

Speaker 4 (09:10):
It's Friday nights. The beauty of Good Morning Football is
wherever the host wants to take.

Speaker 5 (09:14):
Itee is our night here with our out.

Speaker 4 (09:17):
So it's when you're a guest, you just break.

Speaker 6 (09:20):
It's it's scary because when you line everything up, it's
Friday night.

Speaker 4 (09:24):
So like Dune, you're gonna go watch Doom matinee. Then
you're gonna pick up your kids, like that's not it.
You know, that's not Friday night. Kids already sleep. You
go scary movie because scary movie.

Speaker 6 (09:35):
Leads to what your wife or your girlfriend, whatever you
got going on. They get a little closer, they're scared.
So now it turns into this chill night start. Scary
movie has a great ending. Some scary movies don't always
have a great in it, but your night will always
end well when you watch a scary movie Friday night.

Speaker 4 (09:52):
So it's definitely yeah.

Speaker 1 (09:54):
That's so that's like kind of your own version of
like the Netflix and chill and.

Speaker 5 (09:58):
Chills, Scar and Chill. Oh yeah, that's a scary movie.

Speaker 4 (10:02):
Like I sound a little creepy, but.

Speaker 5 (10:05):
I would go sci fi because of the opposite reason.

Speaker 1 (10:07):
I don't know if you guys have this, but Brooke
like she's out on the scary movies, like completely, I've
tried to sneak it sometimes, or like she'll be out there.

Speaker 5 (10:15):
And I'll just start this movie and she'll say, she's like,
what's this.

Speaker 1 (10:17):
I'm like, ah, it's just it's don't worry about It's
got British royalty in it and you'll love it. And
then like even when like the credits start, like it
should be like I'm out you know what I'm saying, Like, man,
this scary music, And she'll be like, is this a
scary movie?

Speaker 5 (10:29):
I don't like this? It makes me good? So she
doesn't like it, so I have to go sci fi.

Speaker 1 (10:33):
I was gonna say to Lamar, like, if you want
like a really scary movie, just yeah, you should just
watch the tape of the AFC title game, Like it's
absolutely terrifying.

Speaker 5 (10:41):
It will scare the crap out of here. That was
a rough day for Baltimore guys. It was supposed to
be Christmas. Everybody's home. We got ray here, we're doing
the dance. We're gonna beat the cheese. And no, that
was terrifle. That's like, that's worse than any like.

Speaker 4 (10:53):
Is still mad about it.

Speaker 5 (10:54):
I bet he is.

Speaker 1 (10:55):
That Noise is always chirping about something. Ben NOI get
in here again and tell us more about it. That
was a rough one, ben NOI not his best dad either. Kyle,
I love you, but Jason Devin brought it.

Speaker 5 (11:04):
I would go I would go sci Fi.

Speaker 3 (11:08):
Neither neither for me, like Brianna and I'm I'm like,
I'm not a huge movie person.

Speaker 8 (11:14):
I love a comedy. I don't do rom coms. You
hate me right now.

Speaker 3 (11:18):
I'm looking at your face and you're like, you gotta
get something.

Speaker 8 (11:22):
Well, okay, so how about this. I'm on the plane
a couple of days ago. I don't even know when
I last left New York and went to LA but
whatever it was, says sometime and within the last couple
of days, and the woman next to me puts on
Cloverfield and I am obviously I'm trying to I'm trying to,
you know, prep my mock draft live show that was

(11:43):
coming up and out of the corner of my eye.
I keep seeing what's going on in Cloverfield and that
is clearly like it's a sci fi movie, but I
had no context. And it's with John Goodman and it's
like a girl is locked.

Speaker 5 (11:56):
In the base lane.

Speaker 2 (11:59):
That's it.

Speaker 3 (11:59):
Yeah, clearly I did not watch it.

Speaker 1 (12:02):
This woman is somewhere at work being like laying next
to me. She's Drake May going to the Patriots. Like,
I just don't see it. I think McCarthy is the
better fit in Boxborough. She's telling the same story at
her work exactly trying to watch that movie.

Speaker 5 (12:13):
And she has the Vikings training off.

Speaker 3 (12:15):
Yeah I know.

Speaker 8 (12:16):
I mean the audacity of her to be watching.

Speaker 3 (12:18):
This movie on the lane. Give me a comedy.

Speaker 7 (12:21):
I can't.

Speaker 3 (12:21):
I don't want to be scared.

Speaker 8 (12:22):
I feel like I'm already anxious enough, like the world
is like a gigantic sci fi movie, and then of itself.

Speaker 4 (12:28):
I'm good the.

Speaker 6 (12:28):
Segment it was what you want. She just went comics, right, Yeah,
I don't have anything against her.

Speaker 4 (12:34):
You were wrong, he has no note.

Speaker 5 (12:35):
It sounds for you.

Speaker 1 (12:36):
You're not getting more than ten minutes into the movie anyway,
Like we're moving on to the next act.

Speaker 5 (12:40):
Movies you can watch movies are still in the associate producer.

Speaker 6 (12:45):
His wife is watching cracking up, Like, what the hell
is he talking about? I know, Friday nights or nothing
like that. She's actually sitting there like it's only a
day away.

Speaker 8 (12:53):
Oh really, you know what you can pro day and
I love brags.

Speaker 5 (12:57):
About cooking up his wife to pick.

Speaker 4 (13:02):
As hell.

Speaker 5 (13:08):
He is a visionary.

Speaker 4 (13:10):
He is a revolutionary, and tonight.

Speaker 1 (13:15):
He is exactly where he belongs.

Speaker 6 (13:18):
In verse love me Tell Hoddle said Breact.

Speaker 10 (13:25):
If I was set freaking Rollins, I might think twice
about issuing an open.

Speaker 1 (13:29):
Challenge off the top row.

Speaker 5 (13:31):
And our boots off.

Speaker 7 (13:32):
From the second row.

Speaker 4 (13:33):
O splash Rolins looking.

Speaker 7 (13:35):
For a splash?

Speaker 1 (13:36):
Could I think that to deliver a suicide dive and
driving you.

Speaker 5 (13:40):
So into the barricade?

Speaker 7 (13:41):
Great in the shop it out.

Speaker 4 (13:48):
Yeah.

Speaker 5 (13:49):
We were telling our kids yesterday, guess what Seth Rollins is.

Speaker 1 (13:53):
Coming on the show tomorrow? They go, you mean Seth
Freaking Rollins, Daddy, Yes, we do. He is one of
the greatest wrestlers to ever do it. The current World
Heavy Champion, He's won sixteen w w E championships in
his career so far.

Speaker 5 (14:10):
Does not plan on slowing down anytime soon. Ladies and gentlemen,
let's welcome back to the show. Oh yeah, he's got
freaking roll.

Speaker 7 (14:21):
I what an intro always I'm in God, thank you
so much. Good to see you, guys. How you doing
this morning?

Speaker 1 (14:27):
Fired up to talk to you. We've been talking, said,
we got to get right into it. WrestleMania's around the corner.
So's the NFL Draft, and the bell of the ball
is the Chicago Bears. You are a massive Bears fan.
We've talked many times. You had strong passionate takes in
the favor of Justin Fields. He is currently a Steelers
backup allegedly. What do you feel right now about what
happened to Fields and what is coming next for the Bears?

Speaker 8 (14:50):
Oh?

Speaker 7 (14:51):
Man, my guy, he's gone. He's out of Chicago.

Speaker 10 (14:54):
I gotta get rid of all the jerseys. I had
socks with him with his face on him. Man, I was,
I was all in on Justin Fields.

Speaker 7 (15:02):
Yeah.

Speaker 1 (15:03):
I know.

Speaker 10 (15:03):
It's a heartbreaker and I'm sad that he's gone. I'm
happy that he's landing in Pittsburgh with Tomlin Russell Willison.
I think it's going to be a decent fit for him.
I'm missing, but hey, man, business is business. If you're
in the front office and you think you got to
take a shot at Caleb Williams at number one to
transform this franchise, I understand that. So as much as
it pains me, I understand how these things go. It's business.

(15:25):
It's not personal. You got to take the next step
for your organization. Chicago Fields are doing the right thing
with Kayleb Williams, so.

Speaker 7 (15:30):
He's my guy. Gotta get me some Kleb Williams.

Speaker 5 (15:32):
Socks, now, damn right.

Speaker 4 (15:35):
It is business and it is what it is.

Speaker 6 (15:37):
And you mentioned that Kayleb Williams seems to be the
guy for you as a Chicago Bears fan and you're
representing that community.

Speaker 4 (15:44):
What are your thoughts on Kayler Williams. You guys fired
up about him?

Speaker 6 (15:47):
You think he could possibly be the first Bears quarterback
to throw for four thousand yards in a season.

Speaker 7 (15:53):
A couple of things. First of all, I love the kids' style.
I love the style. I love the swag.

Speaker 10 (15:59):
There's all this uproar on social media about his peak
phone case and his peak nails.

Speaker 7 (16:03):
I'm like, come on, y'all, let's have a party man.
Let's have fun, let the kids live, right. But his
skill his skill set is what I'm most excited for.

Speaker 10 (16:13):
I mean, he can make all the throws he can,
he can react under pressure. You see what he's doing
in these extra kind of extra time plays. He just
makes special things happen, you know. And his arm talent
is second none. So I'm really looking forward to seeing
what he does with all the weapons we got in Chicago,
because we're a weapon team now, guys, we got weapons
all over the field.

Speaker 7 (16:31):
It's crazy. So I'm excited to see what he can do.

Speaker 10 (16:34):
And I'm going to go as far as to Guarantekee,
you mark my words right here on this day, guarantee
he will be the first four thousand yard passer in
Chicago Bears history.

Speaker 7 (16:44):
Guarantee.

Speaker 5 (16:45):
That's it, Caleb freaking Williams.

Speaker 4 (16:48):
That's it.

Speaker 7 (16:49):
Yes, sir, Yes, sir, guarantee to Chicago.

Speaker 3 (16:53):
So you're a weapons team.

Speaker 8 (16:55):
Now, I want to know about that ninth pick because
everyone's talking about the first overall with Caleb Williams, but
they also are picking at nine.

Speaker 3 (17:02):
A lot of the mocks have.

Speaker 8 (17:03):
Them going with a wider, whether it's Roma Doonza or
whoever is left there. But also it's such a deep
draft for wide receivers. So I'm going to have you
be Ryan Poles in this situation in your Sunshine sequence.

Speaker 3 (17:16):
Right now, you are the.

Speaker 8 (17:17):
GM of the Chicago Bears. What are you doing with
the ninth overall pick? Are you taking another wide receiver there?
Are you taking a different position, or are you trading
down to gain more assets?

Speaker 10 (17:29):
So the great thing about this ninth pick right is
I feel like we're such a complete team. We're only
missing a couple little things, and there's no like glaring
obvious needs. So in my opinion, when you get to nine,
you pick the best available, because I don't know how
this top ten is going to shake out, especially like
five through ten. It could go any which way. You know,

(17:51):
there's a lot of quarterbacks that are going to go
in the top ten. But like you said, the wide
receiver class is super deep.

Speaker 7 (17:56):
Man.

Speaker 10 (17:57):
So if you get to nine in its neighbors and
he's still there for some reason or a dunze or
something's happened with Marvin Harrison Junior, I think you've got
to take one of those three guys. I mean, they're
gonna be game changers. They're gonna be young. They're going
to add them to this right receiving Gore with Keenan
Allen and DJ Moore, Like, dude, that's going to be
a special elite group. But you know, you could always
use a little love on the old line. Bears could

(18:19):
use another edge rusher opposite Montese Sweat. So it's there's
their options, and that's great.

Speaker 4 (18:24):
To have it.

Speaker 7 (18:24):
Number nine, I think I'm kind of I'm kind of
wide open there.

Speaker 3 (18:29):
When are you releasing your mock draft?

Speaker 7 (18:31):
Yeah?

Speaker 3 (18:32):
When we all know we could probably do it on
our mock Draft live show.

Speaker 7 (18:38):
Look, I'm a Bears fan and I love football. I
haven't quite got it like ironed out yet. We'll give it.

Speaker 10 (18:43):
Give me another couple of weeks. You know, I can't
get these early monks out. I gotta wait till we
get closer to the draft.

Speaker 4 (18:48):
There go. I love this stuff. I love the just
the passion that you have.

Speaker 9 (18:52):
Man.

Speaker 6 (18:53):
Obviously, the Bears they were not quiet and free agency
signing guys like Keenan Allen, DeAndre Swift, Kevin Bayer. How
do you think these new additions will help turn things
around for your beloved Bears?

Speaker 4 (19:04):
What are they going to do this year.

Speaker 5 (19:05):
With these guys.

Speaker 10 (19:07):
Dude, well, look the team is ready to go. Defense
came on strong the second half of the season last year.
You know, they played really really well, anchored a lot
of those wins, and so I'm looking forward to seeing
what we can do.

Speaker 7 (19:18):
You got to remember, we're playing in a tough division, man,
tough division.

Speaker 10 (19:22):
The Detroit Lions proven all right, they were like everybody
was like, Okay, what are they gonna do next year?
What are they gonna do? And they proved that they
got what it takes. They're very close to making it
to the super Bowl. And then there's the Green Bay
Packers and man, how disgusting is it?

Speaker 7 (19:38):
Did they seem to have their third franchise quarterback in.

Speaker 5 (19:42):
A row in a row.

Speaker 4 (19:44):
I can't get one.

Speaker 5 (19:45):
I can't get one. They got.

Speaker 10 (19:48):
They're killing me. They're killing me. But they're good, man,
They're really good. I think they're only going to get better.
They're the youngest team in the NFL. We're the second
youngest team in the NFL last year. So look, I
think we're going to compete, no doubt about it. I'm
not saying I can't guarantee playoffs.

Speaker 5 (20:01):
This year.

Speaker 10 (20:01):
But you take a rookie quarterback at number one, it's
going to be Yeah, you want CJ. Stroud, but you
might end up with a Mitch Trubisky.

Speaker 7 (20:08):
You don't know.

Speaker 10 (20:08):
So at the end of the day, we're going to
see where we're gonna get to. I'm hoping we make
the playoffs this year, at least put up a big fight.
Can't start the season zero to four again, we do that,
we're screwed. But I think I think we're gonna put
together a competitive team. I'm excited to see what the
offense looks like for the first time in a long time.

Speaker 1 (20:26):
You know what we love about Seth is that you
get people to come on and maybe they're wrestlers or actors, whatever,
and they say they're a fan and they can fake
it well enough. I got a few notes, but they
get to my pitch like sets here all day to
go deep and the Bears depth chart drafts pass like
you know all your stuff. I'm gonna double down, Seth.
Let's address the Packers' situation because WrestleMania is coming up,

(20:47):
and as you know, for years and years and years,
the Undertaker had this unbeaten streak at wrestleman, and no
one could be a no could beat him.

Speaker 5 (20:54):
It's just the thing.

Speaker 1 (20:55):
I feel like the Packers have that right now over
the Bears. It just looms over everything. They have to
find their lesnar to finally end the streak. Give me
the state of the Bears Packers quote unquote rivalry right now,
because I'm with you.

Speaker 7 (21:08):
I mean, look at the numbers. It's not a rivalry
at all. I disgust me to say.

Speaker 10 (21:13):
I feel like I'm going to vomit as I'm telling
you this. But Green Bay has owned us. Aaron Rodgers,
no doubt he is right. He has owned Chicago Bears.
I think he gave Jordan Love a little piece of
that realty last season. But dude, they put the wood
on us, and at this point it's a mental hurdle
we got to overcome. It's mental. I know the game's physical,
very physical, but dude, there's like a psych out kind

(21:35):
of factor going in. Chicago goes into Green Bay or
the Packers come in a soldier, and I don't think
this team thinks they can win, you know, I just
I think green Bay goes in with such confidence that
they just put the wood on us. Every time. So
we got to break that cycle. Man, we got to
crush them. I don't want to just beat him like
I don't want to squeak by.

Speaker 7 (21:53):
I want to cross them. And so, yeah, I don't know.
I'm hoping. I'm hoping. Kayleb Williams is our guy.

Speaker 3 (21:58):
Man.

Speaker 7 (21:58):
We got to break that undefeated streak. You know what
I'm saying.

Speaker 1 (22:02):
I hear you, man, last game of Justin Fields as
a Bear, they go to Lambo and put up nine
thus in the last I mean, it was just so bad.
Let's look forward to more exciting things, all right. WrestleMania
Baby forty. I don't know how that happened, but seth
you're always part of it. You're gonna defend your World
heavyweight title. We see the strap right there against the
Scottish Warrior Drew McIntyre. What should fans expect to see

(22:25):
from the seth Rons experience at the Showcase of the Immortals.

Speaker 10 (22:30):
I got tricks, you know what I'm saying. I got tricks.
I'm wrestling two knights. WrestleMania is two Knights in Philadelphia
this year. First night, I got myself a tag match,
me and Cody Rhoades taking on Roman reigns and get
this right, The Rock, The Rock. That's right, Dwayne Johnson,
Maui himself. He is coming out of retirement. He's got

(22:51):
one more in him, and we're gonna do At Night one,
I'm gonna take him down.

Speaker 7 (22:55):
I got plans for the Rock. Night two, I'm.

Speaker 10 (22:58):
Gonna defend the World Heavyweight Championship against Drew McIntyre. You know,
he is a king of net trolls these days. If
you follow wrestling Twitter or wrestling X whatever it is, now,
he's a king and I plan to put it into it.
I plan to put it into it. So it's good man.
I got a good track record at WrestleMania. You look
at all the things I've done in the past, the
moments I made on the grandest stage of them all.

(23:20):
I plan on making at least two more in April
in Philadelphia. So it's gonna be a good time.

Speaker 4 (23:26):
Man.

Speaker 1 (23:27):
We're gonna be there. A lot of people are gonna
be there watching you. I love that you are wrestling
Maui next week.

Speaker 5 (23:33):
Now, Seth, you pin him and you say you're welcome
to Mawi. All right, get what you've got coming. That's
the guy. Seth Ryans. We love him. Find out it
all goes down.

Speaker 1 (23:42):
WrestleMania forty April sixth and seventh, cecil Be wrestling both nights,
seven Eastern, streaming live on Peacock in the US on
the WWE Network. Everybody else the legend seth freaking freciation.

Speaker 7 (23:55):
They're down. Thank you guys, Go Bears, Let's do it.

Speaker 4 (24:03):
Welcome back to Good Morning Football.

Speaker 6 (24:04):
Our next guest is a draft prospect who already has
his ey set on the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
He's also a first team All American and a projective
first round draft pick. How need you, guys A Welcome
to Good Morning Football from the University of Alabama.

Speaker 4 (24:19):
Terry One.

Speaker 5 (24:25):
He's applive.

Speaker 6 (24:28):
I love it, man, We appreciate you coming in this morning.
I got a chance to call one of you guys games.
I talked to your defensive coordinator, Kevin Steele, and we
asked about you. He said you had the personality of
Dion Sanders. I played in the league for a long
time playing at that cornerback position. You need that personality
and you need to have confidence. Let's listen to an
answer you gave at the combine about being benched in

(24:50):
a game and where it did for you.

Speaker 11 (24:54):
It changed everything for me. I kind of like to say,
I have my Michael Jordan moment. I write it down
every day. Eli Riggs, that's my brother. But I mean
when I got mentioned and replaced for him, it motivated me.
I write it down every day, say I refuse to
ever let that happen again. And that's what's going to
lead me and take me to getting that gold jacket,
which is the hall of fame, the gold jacket. I
ain't talking about the one you could buy, So that
moment right there, From then on, I refuse to let

(25:16):
that happen ever again, and.

Speaker 6 (25:19):
I ain't talking about the one you can buy. Just
talk to us about the type of player that whatever
team drafts you is going to get when you walk
in that locker room.

Speaker 7 (25:28):
When I walk into the locker room.

Speaker 11 (25:30):
First thing first, you have to win over everybody, and
you have to win over the organization. Obviously, they've done
their research and they feel like I would be a
great hit for the team, and they've done that by
drafting me. But you have to go in there and
really just be genuine and the way that I was raised,
the structure and the environment I credit that to just
my upbringing and then even going to Alabama learning how

(25:50):
to be tight with people. Coach Saban did a great
job of just teaching us camaraderie, knowing that it takes
everybody in order for the team to be successful.

Speaker 7 (25:59):
So when I go into the organization, the.

Speaker 11 (26:00):
First thing I want to do is kind of impress
everybody by just knowing everybody's name in the organization, knowing
the cafeteria lady, knowing the janitor, things like that, just
things that have value and have meaning, and just try
to show that I'm not only here to play football, man,
I'm here to build relationships and I want to be
here for a long time.

Speaker 5 (26:18):
What a great answer.

Speaker 1 (26:19):
I mean, we already love you, man, Like we're one
question in, We're like, draft this guy, so we get
end it right now.

Speaker 5 (26:24):
Draft them. Don't even think about anything else. But let
me let me ask you something.

Speaker 1 (26:27):
You have this real cool confidence about you, and you
have to as a corner you get into the league.
I know you're at Bama, I know you played the best.
You go out out there, you're playing the corner. It's
the first drive of the game and you look up
and right across from your Tyreek Hill like different deal.
How are you going to handle that NFL talent coming
at you?

Speaker 7 (26:45):
Oh man? Right now?

Speaker 11 (26:47):
I mean after I get out the show with 'all,
I'm going to work out and just honestly just out
working everybody. I like a model myself after like the
Kobe Bryant to Michael Jordan's and just kind of just
making myself great. Like Kobe, he always talked about how
he didn't have at normal weakness. He didn't have the
speed that everybody had and the athletic gift that everybody had,

(27:08):
so he had to work for And that's what I
pride myself on. Me hard work has gotten me here,
and growing up they called me the working man. So
guys like Tyreek Hill, DK Metcalf, jamar Ches, you get
excited for matchups like that, but you even start preparing
for him now. Like sitting in my room, I like
to tell people I watched TV, but I don't really.

Speaker 4 (27:26):
Watch it like that.

Speaker 11 (27:27):
So I was just going back looking at some game
field and I wasn't watching Tyreek Hill, but I was
watching DK Metcalf, him and the Joey Porter matchup. So
I'm just sitting back there looking I'm like dang man,
I got a guard this guy next year, whether I
get drafted to the Seahawks or whether we had to
play against the Seahawks, I'll have to see him. So
I just already get my mind mentally prepared for things
like that, and already just preparing my body for the

(27:49):
tough challenges up that's up ahead.

Speaker 6 (27:53):
Man, preparation is key in the NFL. Just like Jason,
I played for a long time. But when I went
back and I was watching the bam of film you
and kool A McKinstry, what I love was you just
complete football players. Show up in the run game, you
understand rock combinations, all these different things watching a film
like Man, these two dudes are.

Speaker 4 (28:12):
Well taught football players.

Speaker 6 (28:14):
Can you just talk about how you guys have made
each other better by your relationship?

Speaker 11 (28:19):
Well, number one, we kind of addressed it to the media.
We understand each other and we really have a true
love for each other. That's my brother.

Speaker 7 (28:28):
I've shedded blood, sweating tears with that guy.

Speaker 11 (28:31):
So just coming in and having a peer that you know,
that you know wants to be great and uphold the standard,
it makes you better. Kul Aid being on the right side,
if he made a play or if he did something,
I would feel like, oh, man, okay, this kind of
this kind of how it's going to go. They're going
to come at me so and vice versa. So just
being there and being able to be in that same
atmosphere with him. I mean, like I said, our secondary

(28:54):
last year, I feel like, man, that would go down
as one of the greatest secondaries. I mean we had
Halo downs, Malachy Moore, Jalen Key, kool Aid, myself. I mean,
we had a lot of talent, and then that even
just goes to the cornerback room that we had two
years ago. That's what really made kool Aid and myself
who we are. Like Hyre Jackson, who's the top draft prospect,

(29:14):
Eli Rix was already in the NFL, and then myself,
kool Aid and Brian Branch at cornerback. I mean, that's
a competition every day and it motivated us. It made
us get closer, and not only that, it's just propelling
us to what we have ahead of us. Like I
tell everybody, Man, kool Aid is my brother. I love
the guy, and we really really made each other better.

Speaker 8 (29:35):
I love this. I feel like you are wise beyond
your ears. You're like an old soul. Feels like you've
been in the league already for years for some reason.
And you mentioned that you called yourself or people call
you the working man. And I know that you spent
some time working on roofs at your prepared big big
roof guy, So you compare roofing to football a little bit.

Speaker 3 (29:57):
I just want to know what some of those similarities are.

Speaker 11 (30:01):
I told a story at the Kamma like rufor has
just allowed me to trust mysel so Number one beat
up there with my granddad in the summers while everybody
else was playing around. It kept me disciplining and kind
of kept me from being a product of my environment.

Speaker 7 (30:13):
I always say, Tallassi Tod, it's a hard place to
make it out of.

Speaker 11 (30:16):
But it just kept me disciplined and kept my eyes
on the prize. The first thing that showed me is, hey, man,
I don't want to be no ruf for it. I
mean grant Dad, but I didn't want to be there.
I had other plans so going back to football. Just
being in the heat Fall camp it was fun for
me because I was like, man, doing this is way
better than to be on the roof.

Speaker 7 (30:37):
I mean, I got a helmelet to protect my face.

Speaker 11 (30:39):
I don't have to worry about falling hurting myself, but
just going there, like I tell people, man, Rufin just
allowed me to trust myself because the fiberglass on the roof.
If you slipped and you fall, no one's coming to
save you. They were playing cornerback. When you're out there
on that island, single coverage, man, it's you. Will never
receive it one on one of the heat scores. Like

(30:59):
I always say, it's God the end zone and it's you.
So I mean, it just allows you to have My
confidence comes from.

Speaker 6 (31:08):
I love that, especially you get on certain teams and
you have safeties. Like my brother said, next to you,
who the only worried about themselves? You're out there on
the eyeland. You don't have that help from guys like that.
You know, the feeling safety getting out of the screen
making it look like it's all the corner. But I
got to ask you because a Bama became a big
thing with her Rhys Davis on ESPN the phrase a
link and let all nay sayers know break this down.

Speaker 4 (31:31):
For us because it went viral. Everybody was talking about it.
What does it mean? Where does it come from? For
you guys?

Speaker 11 (31:37):
Jayal Mirro and myself while we were in the locker
room and uh, Jamison Williams and John Metchit they had
just came up with the whole crane movement like that.
So we were like, man, what's the movement that we
can start that not only will impact the football team,
but impact Alabama. So then we were like Coach Savan
always said something about nay fairs like anytime he addressed

(31:58):
the team.

Speaker 7 (31:58):
It was then they don't want us to do this,
the Nate they don't want us to do that. So
we're like, what can we take from that? And I
kid you not. It was almost like in a movie.
Jamil looked at me said, sometimes you just got to
let him know. I'm like Lank. He like, huh, like
re and that in it. He was really putting on
his jersey. He looked back at me like.

Speaker 5 (32:19):
Huh, And I was like, bro like Lank.

Speaker 7 (32:22):
And then Jayleen he take it from there. He was like,
let a Nate say or no. So then that's what
it was.

Speaker 11 (32:29):
At first, let a Nates there know, But then we
had to go to the media and stuff. Actually it was.
It was his parents who came up with it. Shout
out to Jmail or dad and his mom. They were like, hey, man,
why would you let Nates there? No, you need to
let all Nates Sayers know. You need to let everybody know.
So then that's how we came up with it. And
then when we had the game versus Texas, we kind

(32:50):
of watched everybody's turn on us. They were like, man,
the dynasty is over. I told y'all Alabama was a
ten to two team. They don't have what it takes.
And then Jamil he got benched. We went in the
USF just the whole testament to his character and stuff.
After gett a bench, we called a player on meeting
and guys like myself, Dallas Perner, kool Aid, J mil
we got JC Latham too. We all got up there

(33:11):
and we were like, hey man, how do y'all want
to be remembered? You know, we don't want to go
down and savings only class, not to win a ring.
Ultimately we ended up coming up short still, but just
bringing the team together, and that goes back to what
I said about camaraderie and stuff and just learning how
to understand people. I looked at my teammates and I
was like, how can we go out here and play
for each other if we don't even know each other

(33:31):
like that? So then we start to learn different things
about each other. Like I could go and talk to
Kleber and be like, hey, man, your dad Gary's sitting
in the stands.

Speaker 7 (33:39):
Man, we can't have that. He's watching.

Speaker 11 (33:41):
Just things that motivate people, things that understand people, instead
of just yelling at somebody, Like the worst thing you
can do as a player is going yell at somebody
when they know they're in the wrong, Like, Man, I
know I messed up. I know I got bombed in
front of one hundred thousand people millions watching on TV.
I don't need you to chest size me on the sideline.
So I always proud of myself as never being that guy,
the type of person just to go and say, hey man,

(34:02):
I know your mom is watching.

Speaker 7 (34:03):
Man, it's okay, you got the next player. It's all right,
I got your bat.

Speaker 11 (34:06):
When you reassure people like that, it makes them want
to go out there and play harder.

Speaker 6 (34:12):
Absolutely love which other team gets you. They're getting an
absolute gen man. Good luck in the upcoming drive. We
can't wait to see out there on the sidelines there

Speaker 7 (34:20):
Thank you guy.
