A sports fans you're heading out to watch the game Anita fill up when I joined the fuel rewards program and earn rewards and show fuel numbers say about their show fill up every day as a sign of freed today if fuel rewards dot com slash ESP NN. Kenny Chesney you'll be in our studio our final hour this morning he's playing nearby deli there's a semi or I saw myself from my wife Chris Jake is like Jenny or a lot of the shall I found out what's a fantastic show dornin again tonight in your Mohegan but now our friend AG Edwards announced he has made easily into our studio. As there's a ton of basketball to discuss please tell me I got it right. Which are absolutely that was organized I've struggled with us as you have and I'm working very hard at it but whoa urges dropping bombs left and right all over the place so let's bring to basketball into what's been a very busy football conversation day let's start with the easy part of that the Carmelo Anthony conversations where are we right now. Well. New York in Houston re engaged cheer in the last few days. And started to talk again about ways to do a deal and they need a third team. There's no straight and one on one deal that. At least New York's willing to do that they don't want to take on Ryan Anderson sixty million dollars in three years that's the easy. Deal from Houston's pointed Yuba. New York's I do when that deal they need other they need another team maybe two other teams potentially. Because right now Carmelo is only awaiting that no trade for Houston for now. And so New York it paused that conversation with Scott Perry got hired as GM in July. Tried to get a conversational Carmelo about how comfortable he might be. With coming back to the team medically let's get a trade done so. So that's who they are now and they have six weeks shall training camp that deceit that could find a find an avenue how how. How much. How much it is a putting handcuffs on the next four or relatives saying Houston I mean. Where where is the line of them saying Melissa and were were just. We can't do Virginia editor of the oh you're gonna have to open up your options for and that's what they want they want him to open up those options and the team the watch in there. Is Portland because. This has become very much of a recruiting. League it's almost like a modern. It's almost like a modern day EU travel basketball model where. You know James Hart and played a role in this and Chris Paul a big role and commits increased Polycom the Houston playing. And so right now you have dame Willard and CJ McCollum who's done a tremendous backcourt in Portland. They've they've made progress. I'm told with Carmelo Anthony and peeking his interest on that blazers team so if the blazers were able to come up with a deal package that. Worked for New York. Then. He gives car most something to think about again they've. They've made inroads with him I'm told and CJ is in New York right now plane be sauce in the area see him play pick up with right. With Melo and think about that team in Portland if they do a deal if they could do a deal for Melo with my column Millard. Use of their kitchen played just tremendous basketball for them the young senator. Down the stretch and you put Carmel on that team if they can piece the other deal that didn't mean with with the rest of their team picks. That for that top four outside of Golden State stacks up pretty well almost anybody in the last. You know how motivated is Carmelo I understand how motivated the knicks are to move on from him it makes all the sense in the world. How motivated is Carmelo to get out of their regular said the Mike earlier this morning if they wait him out and he's right now only giving them Houston is an option. At some point. Someone needs to say to him you do realize what you're signing up for is another year of this that you may could be delighted that fellas gone but your team is still gonna be bad. You're still wasting one remains. Of some semblance of your prime in a situation where you have no chance to win how motivated you think he ultimately will be to get. Well that's with the knicks are curious to find out is that once they get in the camp. Star playing in the sea where the team is that. You know. Phil Jackson spent. Are the better part of a year trying to run from allow waive the no trade publicly embarrassing him at times. And so it took from a long time to get to a point where he said all right I'm willing to waive the no trade. Lead the next and then all of a sudden a new regime takes over and they say well they were open to having you back. He wasn't ready to go back on them but he's always a plane in New York he's lived through the losing. And I I think for the next the one thing that I know they told Carmelo is. When you come back here you're not when you hear that from us anymore Scott Perry their new GM. It has essentially told Carmelo I'm not going impaired should not gonna call you on the media that's not going to happen anymore we're gonna make it comfortable. For as long as you're here and the knicks are trying in good faith to honor. His request on the trade because they know they're the ones who started and they're the ones who pushed for and they gave him the no trade clause I know. There's a school thought of Li's holding them hostage well that's why a player gets a no trade clause to have control over that. Phil Jackson the wanna give it to it'd have to and so. But I but I think the knicks wanna see. Once he gets the camp if if he does wanna move on and they can't get a deal with Houston and again it's a very typical pathway with Houston. Does he start to open up and put more teams on in Portland is a team at the top of that because he looks at. McCollum alert and says hey that that's about as good as a tandem outside of Al-Maliki did just that to me a sunny he's an appearance. If he doesn't open up his options and could that be leverage on his part. For the next to buy and how well they will they think about doing that at all. They've resisted out from the beginning that's a lot of what. When it came to a head with Phil Jackson. Was organization he wanted to just mine all right and your viewers ages and I absolutely not I mean it's 54 million dollars over two years. That there's no appetite right now in New York to do and can always change money is never an object would would Dolan and it never has been. He's waste a lot of it spent a lot of it but their feeling is we are going to get assets for him we're gonna get something we'll see how realistic the knicks are. You know we'll see a real sick the knicks are in terms of what they can get for him and he used it for everybody out where Melo was in his career 33 and such a big number but let's say hypothetically Portland does not deal for him. There he cost them in luxury tax to pay a hundred million dollar luxury tax Milne the in his second season is deal Paul Allen who pay that. Because if it's usually good and committed Paul Allen will spend that money but that contract isn't for everybody. Only Mike Mike and won't get our studio Asian or announced he'd. I'm and that brings us then to something that you were talking about last night on television that I I don't think most of our fans are aware of as as we ponder. The trade demand slash request made by carrier Irving in Cleveland. That there is a date looming in December that might actually change the paradigm a little bit so maybe don't expect to seek Harry built in these next couple of weeks explain that. Well one option. For Cleveland is the way December 15. Players who signed free agent deals this summer become eligible to be traded so. Let let's say hypothetically. Minnesota wanted to get involved. Jeff Teague signed a free agent deal summer they can't trade him till December 15 and you go through the legal to rosters who signed this summer. So that the summer fifteen date. Potentially opens up a lot. This more possible deals for them to do now do they wanna wait that long I I think it was a they would prefer to do this before training camp. But there's a lot of pressure on a Cleveland organization to get maximum value for him because he's the one asset now who can set them up. Let's let's be asked post LeBron if LeBron leaves a free agency they get nothing Kevin Love doesn't nearly have the value he had when he walked in the door there. Perry is the one they have to get a return on they can't do a bad deal for him. It's just turned into more than maybe high react again we're world just speculating this Tyree just wanted to be the man somewhere what what's the reasoning is part of the reasoning though. Now we hear that Dave McManaman that talk of him going for days without talking to to his teammates during the playoffs. Is it turned sour with relationships do we think and that team. I think that. This is more about in from the beginning at spend with Tyree was getting control. Of his future his career and I've been at the mercy of the bronze gonna do. At the end of 2000 the and its 1718 season that. If LeBron leaves. And leaves him behind with a team that just doesn't fit the pieces don't fit around him. That. He wants to have a voice and where he goes from here and that was a big part of this trader request is more as much as. Yes he'd like to have a team built around there's no question that's part of it. But. If you looked at through the years everyone has had to react to what LeBron did had to react in Cleveland the first time Miami leaving there this is a player saying I'm getting out. And of this thing. Which makes cents it it's actually of all the different things that are happening that's the one that makes sense so the way I'm reading what you're saying is. They are looking to make a move involving carry that will not. Necessarily beat. To try and win one more championship in the early in the year left they have with LeBron but a bigger picture move that will shut them up for a post LeBron world. So where does the confident of that because he's going to be 33 when we come out on the other side of this thing and I understand that he's in the greatest shape of anyone ever in the and that Tom Brady is forty and everything else but every read as a when it title is another year he doesn't win a title but where does he stand and all well as. This is by LeBron not being committed. To coming back in Cleveland by not telling them hey I'm in a Kevin Durant was on a one year deal and Golden State they knew it was coming back in had they planned accordingly. By LeBron not giving them direction yet I'm and it's his right he's a free agent he can. He can wait it out. Clearly has the move would be ideal we just don't know he's gonna be here they are not going to do a deal that is. All win this year veterans big contracts. They need a really good younger piece that may not help them this year. They'd like to give both for now and for the future that may not be realistic but I think if they had. I know that they have to they're looking at this with a longer view that does not help LeBron James this last season but without a commitment from him how whilst they proceed. We all get worked up now vote with LeBron and I'm coming home or going home or whatever he saw what health and well I owned LA IV. I don't know. To me that telling part is that organization is acting as if they're very unsure whether he staying and they are not going to just load up to convince him to stay. And put a team out there that that straps them financially if he walks out the door. That's not been their intentions so far trade talks on hold tonight we'll see what happens again will happen in the next few weeks will it take into December. All those things are still the common you know that'll have is here to the ground force AG in Morgan county. There's always a pleasure great work thank you so that's good to see that's code for this Mike in my presented by progressive insurance. Our guests appear on the shelf until performance on look at Michael Collins. And for the PGA coming up but right now it is time for better or for worse for the time for another edition are. I'm more shocked. Obviously Mike didn't mind. Kilometers seven were just brought to abide Granger is also always brought to you by Bubba who is back where this year or not. Collect I stopped and above a little boost and you did earlier this really happy things to do and had a good chat Bubba seem he seemed revved up he's excited about today's Lovett are Shelvin he's got props Forester de LA clubs. Doing great back on the board again for some reason. Talking about. Tough this year excited about that. Yeah I mean it's always great to wake up again and 3M you know sometimes it's good to go back to your roots start to think Bubba. That's fair opened our brother's got a variety of headlines and he we will decide are we love them or shove them Bubba let's count. Of Dauman took Leonard Forman and Christian McCaffery McCaffery well the best rookie season lover show. That you're shot and I got to I think going to be between gallery cooker McCaffery. We'll see how he how he Jews Wear when cam is. Quarterbacking. I would probably moving toward Galvin cook I really like. What he does we'll see if the shoulder injury comes back to haunt at all but through the running scheme they have a Minnesota his ability catch a ball out of the backfield. I I look for him. I think for and it's going to be really that more that runner than catching a ball out of the backfield and gab and I think they're getting different ball got you know and but you know it has to happen. And old line has to block for the stuff very good offensive line in Jacksonville so I'm I will of those three hour lean to delve understand that they've got a questionable quarterback situation they have. If these guys got to come together they should have a good defense have a ton of players on that defense some of whom have been hurt her I think for an that is gonna get the ball lobbies and has nothing to do with your offensive linemen running the ball you average a little underdog which shouldn't it could ask your quarterback not to make huge mistake he's gonna try and run it and Hillary are handled the 89 in the box and say we're gonna stop for an act as a quarterback camp passed the ball well Howard measuring the best rookie season if you're asking me who is going to have the most yards from scrimmage. My prediction is that of those three McCaffery will be third. That that he will be he will be third on the list of those three as far as who will have the most yards from scrimmage this season. Yeah I'm because you do have you obviously another running back in Carolina you know along with McCaffrey and in four and that's going to be the guy but the I'm Ty I'm really ended Albert Copeland what he can doing the opportunities that he's gonna get me through his my priest my pick for rookie of the years that we've both shove it baba next both carrier ring and Carmelo Anthony will start next season with their current teams lollar seven. I'm gonna a shot that I'm prime minister I mean. Quote I'm glad that he came in here any clear that December 15 thing I doubt what quality is an interesting little side bar. It isn't as definitive as I thought it rose when I was reading about it this morning he is talking about it on TV last night I didn't see I read it. And now that I hear him tell it. While it it it really only applies to players who signed this summer if they're motivated to move him and I think they are they will so I believe he'll be dealt. I go Carmelo 5050 inquiry I believe will be gone so yeah we'll see sharp word both makes me shoving the to think that both are going to be. With start the season with their current teams fell. Iowa Iowa shot that is well Bubba next the Dodgers will not lose another series this season on that a lost once since early June lover shot I have to show that I just don't think that pace can stay they're gonna wrap things up. Tomorrow could go the way it's going right house all. I absolutely don't you know I don't think there's a lot of mode you tell me do you think there's a lot of motivation and try to break the all time wins record. The Seattle Mariners who didn't win anything that year. 116. Games which is the record for most wins in the regular season the 98 yankees 114 and then they won the World Series right. You know in basketball the warriors went after that record heat. Do you think the Dodgers go after that is that of any consequence to them I've got to believe the answers they know 87 now so. We did the math yesterday admitted imagine what it would take a native 37 wins I got one last night's going to be 36 or winners in twelve I think you have to go there rather well. However the only reason that they they sort of keep the penalty and elders motivation for that or -- the motivation should obviously be let's set ourselves ought to be a position where in the world like to think most people knew that the Mariners had a record about a because they didn't and it would their World Series I think it's lost like the 72 wins at the bulls had in 1996 people knew that number that's that that's a number everybody anatomy many people of America are neither shall they were both get a shot at the Dodgers. We'll definitely lose at least one more series. The rest of the year Bubba with love it or shot at next living down bell is hurting himself with the whole though the other shows that the GM four Pittsburgh said listen as far as. Money yeah because he can't get anymore but there there's no. Monetary value to this holdout he's not getting fired because he hasn't signed the deal so technically he's not under contract. He can't do a different deal the absolute. Most he can play for his twelve point one million for this year that fit so they don't and he's not doing. Is he's not at camp so the thought is is he hurting himself by not being at camp. Listen he's a guy that could step in and play well right away he doesn't need to get all the hits you get in camp even though you couldn't you could certainly see. You know dictate how much that happens. My biggest worry at all my biggest worry is when you're not playing football in football pads into football plays you're not getting in football shape. And you have the possibility. Of all said that hamstring that quads some muscle strain when you come back so all. That is always been my big biggest fear that as a monster fear for running back. On August 11 I'm not worried about nominates a shot at. Big givers exactly the point that you just made if he doesn't go in and he held it eased it deciding this himself he'll decide when he feels like all that. Thought if he does it with like at least two or three weeks to get himself into that football shape I think goal wind up having been completely irrelevant. If he decides to take this all the way to the end to try and make a point or just because he doesn't feel like going and at that. Wanna start hearing about off little bit I'm not worried about it now doggone word about it now if that question is right now but. I was hurting himself with a sold out right now all Seychelles Gaudio is not a lot of he has right now and a bubble one more. Misery visible to use nicknames on jerseys for players weekend love your show what's not to Lowell went above loving hours they were doing more I adore it. Chad I want to marry yet. A little much. I want I want to live with a for the rest of my life all children whether it all right I mean it's it's how could you not do this and there are 58 players in the sporting decided not to do it. As for those who don't know we're talking about there's a date at the end of the month I think it's the 25 whatever it is. That all of the players in baseball. Have the option. Of just putting nicknames on the back of their jerseys whenever they want and they can be creative and fun and whatever it is. God for we should have fun in this game I don't promise I have probably 58 maybe don't have nicknames maybe they think it will anything on there nobody babies don't feel like I think he jerseys you Tommy Brett Gardner's putting Gardiner on there which is of course just his last name. Now the Yankees don't ever have names on the larger right so. That's adding something body I mean you could put a nickname to protect kid's name he could put anything you want on there. For for the guys are just put their own games on does that kind of killed joy out. Does that kill the fun of this thing no not at all. You don't wanna put something on the what would you what if they'd like you put the name of the back teenagers doing or what I what are my what are my putting out there I know you put green yeah there are just kind of collect. But while legitimate you're gonna put any that you could have put you know. Love you Chris. You gonna put he hate me all you're gonna put just standing there and that led to direct hit a warden of they viewer playing I would have I would have paid you. However much you would have taking you to do a billion dollars to just put on hash tag just standing there are. That's not funny yes that would I'm not laugh and all would be funny. I think it's a great idea if there if someone doesn't want to care I have an issue that I've an issue of them not one you're doing a half. That's above British governor tried to make Granger amount of the job Granger got your back Granger for the ones who get it done and that was probably get nicked up a big big all right on Bob's Shari element if you wanted to insurer slid it cannot do that article and these are all up this room now I thought they were. It went a step in your office this morning or did you say your props. Users weren't listening we've.

We are Mike and I can he is the funniest man on the golf courses we are set now for day to look. Of the PGA championship in Michael Collins. Is ready to join us live is it taking in all of the action in sweltering. North Carolina how are you a Michael. Man out of it is humid here and really hot the forecast was for thunderstorms but the invitation. DNA in long sleeves and I had it jacket on earlier I was. So way and like nobody's business is there are plenty of pros right now. That are very happy that they got to Wear shorts during a practice rounds and I'm a little disappointed that we got to do this on camera because normally all radio. I'm 61160. Fast enough and a I rock pop up at. I to a given away some your secret let's start with street yesterday. Because clearly that's who everyone had their eye on is as he had the chance of still has the chance. He didn't play himself completely out of it yesterday. To complete the career Grand Slam he said afterwards that it was about as badly as he can remember putting in a long time a lot of guys seem to have trouble with the greens yesterday what happened was beat. Well he had 32 putts and we're used to seeing him make a whole bunch of bombs when he's out on the golf course and he just didn't make any of those whatsoever. 32 putts for Jordan speak that's a whole lot now he did it and fairways out of fourteen and engage kids fourteen out of eighteen greens which is really good so he came so chances but its proximity to the hole was like. Forty point nine feet so he was never really close that hole locations but listen. At one over par at the leaves only four under is only five shots off the lead and there's three days left in this in this championship so. The hole locations in round one. They were in very tough positions and when I see that it's because the most important thing around quail hollow is to stay below the hole give yourself up. Uphill putts. But there was so many hole locations yesterday out on this golf course where that was impossible and if you miss the fairway as one caddie told me. He's just wait good luck with dad 'cause he got no chance yelled at. How different it is right when we're in year 456. Strokes back. A name guy but you look up and you see guys in all for casual more casual fans like me. I don't know the two guys at the top of the leaderboard but how about for guys in the game when they see. Players that are normally at the top of the leaderboard what does does that mentally say OK well I don't know those guys going to be able to hold that so I have even a better shot now. Could this not a big name at the top. Did goalie that's a fair enough question I mean true when you look at the top of the leaderboard you're like if gore view for Bjorn who ruin you stand. It's four Bjorn Olson that's how you pronounce his name and his name means thunder bare butt. He's about two inches taller than me and probably fifty pounds lighter he can move it out there about Kevin Q is there. Is a name you might have heard of before because he's already won on the PGA tour wants. So Kevin his there has got some game out their plight. This is the first time being in the lead of the made draft their first round and that's what the big name guys look at. Guys like Jordan's beat him Roy Mack where they're gonna look at the leaderboard go okay. Who's at the top and then how many guys do I have to jump to get to them but you don't really do that. Real hard core after the first round but on Saturday and Sunday that's when it becomes a big factor. Go look I'm gonna put this in your wheel house holes and only cost me 7500 on draft and draft picks. So that enabled me Boyd enabling me to spend what I needed I Hideki Matsui Hamas who came into this thing as hot as hot can possibly be. And was OK yesterday everyone's talking about speech and everyone talk about McIlroy. But Michael everyone should be talking about Hideki matching up. After that 61 that he dropped in and the final round of the WG CQ looks so perfect but seemed you've got to be careful green because it would all big name golfers say they want a peak. At the majors. And as Hideki played OK yesterday. You open that he didn't peak last week and he can keep it on now when it comes the Hideki Martha Gama. This is a guy that when he starts going on a run he can go on a run for a long period of time that we've seen other golfers do that we just never seen Hideki do we. At this level and you know. I'm glad you got four born on the cheap because who doesn't so I was up a second if you go to ESPN dot cows golf pace and checked my top 25 list under bears in their. I'm just saying it. And that's a nice job body you get a we had Andy North side and Andy said when we're talking about who may win this you should watch out. You know for the AG one and Phil Mickelson and every any kind of what the same way on that and boy did bill struggle and and seemed to continued to struggle what's going on where it was him and his game. All right I'm gonna say greening. And Andy North I love ya to death ma'am but you guys got the old man's syndrome you got the whole picture is still don't don't don't do it what has Phil Mickelson doesn't. The last two years that would have been giving you any glimpse of that and I hope. I mean he hit six. At a eighteen greens and that was with feeding eat fairways he hit more fairways hit greens. I mean his scrambling numbers were horrible for out of twelfth. And it's one of those things where we're so used to seeing Phil go wild off the tees but then be able to hit those amazing recovery shot and make it fifteen to twenty foot birdie that everything just came out of nowhere no one's odd comment but. Guess what that Phil Mickelson eight dollars. At that he you know what you are you're probably a 100% right and and that. There's two thoughts that I keep alive one of them is that we're seeing athletes in all sports accomplishing things at older ages. And Mickelson seems like one of those guys he's still doesn't have got to Michaels put it this way. He is probably about an age where you cannot expect you to compete at every major but he's the guy who's gonna pull one out somewhere along the line and and and it could be five years from now. Phil Mickelson has all the sudden going to be there on the Sunday of a major and it's going to be one of those you know get everybody around the TV because here it is do we have with Nicholas late in his career than what we have with Tom Watson at the British Open a few years ago. Mickelson is still gonna do that. Maybe five years now Mickelson is going to be 51 and you've got to remember one thing. As great as it was to watch Tom Watson make their run at the open championship did he win he didn't. I'm just saying it. It seems like there's a little more want to out of view and a Sony that very. Vote the district listen I got no I got nothing wrong because I love Phil too and I love the magic that he created on the golf course and and the hardest part is he still looks the same. That's the hardest thing it's not like in football and baseball we tell the guys that beads off a little bit or football like he can't throw as far as used to or you know is not running as fast as what used to and there was catching it in golf. They put out for going to let this is saying do is right there and he can still hit it 300 yards a renowned there when he needs that you don't reach back and get one. But when it comes down to it you gotta look at the scorecard. And when the scorecard has fallen apart and you know the caddie and you split after 25 years like. It's a little bit of a sign it's just hard for us because we're so spoiled we lived through his great each and it's hard now to look at a guy like that until they might be open. He noticed dues he's tried done women you know me at least majors he's done he might win the tournament here there. But as far as majors go it's not like all these young guys that are out here right now they let off Phil's here let's not practices are dominant I'm. Are much going don't you you're just did support senator you had its say yet that the long sleeved shirt on urine and very humid part of the country right now quail hollow. How what party you is not sweating at this point. Well our home. You know it's hot when you actually feel a sweat drop it on your knee cap and it started their so. I would save. There's no hard you try to spell that is not feeling a little bit like run to the media said he didn't air conditioning. And you put on a golf polo and go walk the golf course but I'm gonna go out walk I don't care Swinton is good is that's why you Wear a T shirt underneath stuff right go would you know. If you're gonna go eat hot food. Then you have a towel to Debbie head off cause them beast beaten up so Witten. And you Wear a T shirt so you know you don't have those embarrassing Swiss banks. Well done my good how good the funniest man on the golf course at all time thank you Michael and enjoy it today stay cool. He's probably right Mickelson and that makes it makes any time it's one of the I want to right I mean it's it's a sentimental thing right I mean it's like. He forgot how to play the game but he is struggle there's no doubt about I'm not old enough to have appreciated the sport. When Nicholas was just the very end when when watts when not Palmer was the variant. Tiger and Phil are the two greats. The first two greats like legitimate all time greats. That I'm seeing come to the end of their careers and it couldn't be happening more differently right I mean tiger with the injuries and everything else is just not there. Mickelson and it is kind of hard to let go of that feeling but I do believe it look Watson had a Mick global pot I turned her to win that thing anyone up losing in a playoff to Stewart Cink. I'm but I think Watson was 58 or something like that what when that happened. I am so I still believe that I'm put the over under right now that point five. Well many more majors out oil well when his career I doubt go the other way the next I will take the over the next major he winds his way and somebody's gonna need to challenge for our longer on the Champions Tour but you know still it's listed here go play there. Well prewar halfway through another baseball season and we're really seeing some players who stand out as winners like business travelers to win it business by staying liking to inns and suites that because you can import your liking their returns loyalty points to work on the spot with instant free nights just drive up with no reservation at instantly redeem points for a free night that same night simply by using electing to actually hitting a Grand Slam with a map instead of a bat well played better when a business by learning more about instant free nights and check out this summer rates at LQ dot com. Here are some of that Twitter reaction Brian treat at least baseball's allowing players to have a little fun are you watching NFL. You know that's not really fair there's this idea may have come from the NFL's idea member last year they had some specific times ducks set aside where they can Wear whatever cleats they wanted and everything else. They've had to be strict I don't I don't. Are they sometimes the uniformed police to an idiot little nuclear may be. But I understand you can't just let players put whatever whatever they want on their jerseys or their cleats or whatever it is all the time I understand that. Because. They don't start selling advertising on which they were camped out with the business. And he may be more directly. Something that one person supports may be something that another tiger not putting the name of the charity the name of something that you believe in up Erica now all of a sudden. They're creating a conversation where it doesn't belong you are it gets tough because if you open that door you know if you try give an inch people are gonna take a foot and then they're gonna take a yard that they're gonna take more salt. It gets difficult to do I get that there's also a lot of reaction through the 1800flowers.com. Twitter feed. To a lot of the NFL discussion that we were having earlier this morning and and most of it is about the torture misty and give. Bears fans are doing exactly what they shouldn't but they should chose to say. You know if you know any of our football you know that how well he played last night only means a tiny little bit. But rejoice in it why not because if you looked awful yesterday that it then you would be getting up this morning and you'd be screaming fire Ryan. Pace fire the coach get rid of everybody Lloyd this guy's stick it words were buried now all glad and not the long term answer we don't have our long term answer this guy's awful absolutely. So while. Don't think you have the savior just yet and that you know you'll you'll finally have a a Pro Bowl quarterback since Jim McMahon your first wanted Jim McMahon. Pull the reins on that but. Man I tell you it was it was a really it was a nice start I really really thought he played well and as I said. The next move wool will come behind the scenes of practice work Borg are not allowed to be they'll start to take some reps at some point for Mark Sanchez and and it'll go from there. And though just expose him to a little more a little more in a little more I believe that he will be the starting quarterback of the bears at some point this year. I believed to Shawn Watson may very well be the starting quarterback of the Houston Texans we want I think there's a real chance of that. There's no chance of that which Robiskie I think there's no chance today are too risky Kaiser's going to be an interesting morning Cleveland because nobody is really grabbed hold of that the expectations. I was gonna sink the expectations are lower Cleveland but the old Chicago right so I mean we're sitting there talking about the only difference of the two is. Chicago supposedly got a bridge quarterback that the expectation was going there was going to be there. And he was highly capable. Of of handling that bridge job and maybe more as he knows the writing on the wall he knows he's basically auditioning for and another year to maybe shorter now for another team because tributes he's going to be the guy here. But but other than that that's that's both teams are not expected to do well go to charm Kaiser start to order to be like wow okay. No it's not like he had all the experience in the world either you know plane in college so I'll put it to rescue started it would it would be like oh my god. You know this is unbelievable and unfortunately. It would be a little more held against collider. The other one that is of interest to me and we're we're we're gonna have Kenny Chesney here just a couple of minutes and we'll talk to him about this because he'll be particularly interested. As the situation in New England Jamaica Rob Lowe was phenomenal last night and everything we've seen from Barack bloated does have a very small but legitimate and sample of of regular season games it's not just pre season games. With core problem because he started last year before he got hurt when Brady was suspended. Grapple looked phenomenal again yesterday. And they're gonna have a fascinating. I guess it's a good problem to have but they're gonna average some fascinating decisions to make. In New England if Brady continues to look like he's just going on because. Grapple it was not a guy that bill wants to lose I I believe he believes he is the future of the franchise to do you franchise tag him next off season. Which would leave you with a unique situation. Having a guy making a lot more money as your backup quarterback that you're starting quarterback. But I think it would make sense I think that would be the sensible move. It's gonna get interest thing but as long as Brady's playing well Brady's gonna play that that's my opinion I know I know bill as his cut bait early on guys but that's not gonna happen at the most important position that the guys playing near the an agreement with you so is this why you two more seasons from now we're talking about Brady at 422. Years trying to. So you've got this year then if you Jews and tied a franchise tegra Rob Lowe again the franchise tag for quarterback is a huge number that's the only way you'll keep them because if you try to offer my contracts somebody will offer made him a big contract it right and did that doing wrong will not do. I mean they normally don't size mob signed monster contracts anyway. They're not gonna do it to the backup quarterback like that so it would have to be a franchise tag so it's going to be twenty some million dollar and my self serving note on that game but it's not about me. This is about this kid Austin Carr who. Was they walk on at northwestern and I mean the ultimate walk on he wasn't a preferred walk on no one invited him he was a student to not tell the coaches towards I'd like to try out for the football team. Made himself into the Big Ten receiver of the year last year. Collectively was up went undrafted but it's not an export Coca the mall. But that it never dropped a pass in his entire life he had a blue I get five catches last night including a gorgeous catch. Of a touchdown pass go Rob Lowe is going to be not only is gonna make that team is gonna make eight I mean I'm car car. Is not just gonna make the the patriots he's gonna make a huge contribution on that team morals say Iowa lately though he has time Alltel metal. What do you what do you pupil in Austin Carr just tell you go again awful of one pre season under your watch they can play every snap he ever played in college I watch a lot of gives you everything that play college that end up not doing as much in the pros Woolsey eyes I realized I did a medical bowl game in my Saudi of these is a nice kid and a good player but. I'm gonna pull the reins on making him a Boston the whole thing additional like coming up next ready someone who actually knows something about football and the good news is we have someone here who actually does he is one of the most successful recording artist in the entire world. Kenny Chesney is studio chatting for an hour starting five next right here Mike in mine.
