At golden window and let us know the songs that do you think somebody here he is it will be great Carey Leo king at what Mozilla for Adam Schechter. Though I always made me yet another article that I called him he. There it is. And you can I yards seemed. Adam do with two phones a one time out got one only sixteen year. That we called a hash takes chef during that offshore so that is that's what Adam is doing in a big big well there are lots to get to it why don't we begin this hour where. So as soon. Also it's not feel like it or not it's just that we only can we go. All right if we start off the top with the NBA and Paul George scored only twelve points and shot only three of fourteen from the floor but was enough. As the thunder won his first game back to India thanks to a strong game from the supporting cast. He was booty was blue runners senators who hasn't it every time he's expected to what you find he's a warning that I'm leaving this team so you may wanna get rid of me and they did. Model black tea he and Russell Westbrook or Carmelo Anthony the three of Mort and a 45. They shot just 182%. So Stephen Adams who led the way Torre three point thirteen rebounds I got the win that's the most importantly George did play well defensively. Regret a lot of talk about Victor all the people how well he's played offensively. In the absence of Paula George but when Paul George was article at people who posed as one for seven wood to turn over so he did well on the defense of that. Yeah a George Russell Westbrook and Carmelo just scored 34 points which is very interesting in the the Oklahoma City reunion tour are coming back tour continues Saturday when they go to New York to play the knicks and obviously Carmelo Anthony. Will be big part of that reunion game we continued all its. Houston you do not have a problem. A the rockets used a 25 to nothing run their largest since November 1997. Per the Elias Sports Bureau. To win their eleventh straight games since Chris Paul return from injury. It's been in what a game for them last night hornet's they outscored the hornets by 39 points on three pointers. They were seventeen of 45 in order produced four. Alt one while what's been uninteresting. Is how this team has done with just one of those two on the court not together. But we're just hardened on the court they've been better offensively. Efficiency wise and defensively. And that efficiency. And what Paul just a Chris Paul the exact same thing. All they do know that what what a great thing to have as you go on individually and still have this team perform better. It's pretty impressive and you really have to start to wonder what the way the Celtics have consistently been winning. And now what the rockets are doing are they legitimate threats to the two teams were handing it to the cavaliers Angolan state to make it back for another final bridal. A long way for that we get that but an interesting take away from the start of this season. Is that it doesn't feel like a foregone conclusion anymore. Right it doesn't write like hey we'll just play this thing out and for the fourth straight year or have the cavs. And the warriors meet in the finals it feels differently no look a million things could change and injuries are going to be a big part of that going forward. But you have the Celtics with Tyree doing unbelievable things Gordon Hayward now has the boot off. Is it possible that he might be able to come back toward the end of the season and into the playoffs and contribute in some way shape perform. And is it possible that Houston with this mixer that they've found. Could be not only good enough but big and up to may be pushed around goal just eight. A little but in the Western Conference who already had many more losses at this point of view than they did a year ago it just doesn't seem like a rubber stamping anything to the finals and which I think is. I Obama lead right at all by the way you know basketball already a great place for especially coming off last year where we really do the two teams that we're going to be there they got there. So if there's a little bit of intrigue this year on true that I can only help. And again long way to go but it just feels like it's a different sort of set of circumstances. Early in the NBA season most people agree the NBC's really does kick off in a Christmas Day and beyond we get that. It just seems like the temperature of the league is a little different. And it has been the last couple years staying in the NBA off the top Alonso ball's gonna face LeBron James for the first time in his professional career this evening when the lakers visit the cavs and although. Also struggled with a shot balls averaging more rebounds assists and blocks per game and James it during his rookie season. That they've the probably as far as rebounds per game probably about a rebounded half assists per game probably about one assists per game with scoring we're knows a little bit different but. Alonso ball has been. You know from. Vision of port and from the neck up as advertised. Coming into the NBA how a player. This teammates certainly love because you know what he dishes the ball from extremely well. And it brings updated today or in more ways away from a next offseason when there's a lot of people I'm not one of them that think that LeBron cannot. Go to the lakers at the lakers still need to do some movement there to where they can I have to Max salaries one being the possibility of Paul George. One of the reasons not in the N anymore. And the other possibly being LeBron James Woolsey but LeBron had a lot of nice things to say about Alonso ball in the beginning of his career as my son brought up and I think correctly so. I've got a lot of times that LeBron will saying nice things about those that. Bills that don't really pose a threat haven't gotten there yet haven't got the because there's. And as my son brought up that he was really nice about talking about stepped corral the Suggs after a starter with the MVP stuff and right maybe it wasn't that the love wasn't thrown is much going out there. Well it's interesting too because yeah Alonso is doing better in except in some categories yeah than LeBron wasn't his rookie year but. What LeBron is doing this year look I think you're expected. Because. Of what he's done consistently over time. But the numbers he's putting up. In his fifteenth year in the it. He's playing better. Year fifteen. That in any of the years at this point statistically that he won the MVP. And look we we talked about this a little bit last week do you compare what Brady's doing a forty although we slip coupled with the last couple games to a LeBron is doing. It's an amazing thing and I get it. You know it's not a fifteen year grill if you went at least one year in college one and Donnie were scrape my school. But the Wear and tear on your body going up and on the floor and as many minutes as LeBron plays. It's it's impressive thing I think it goes under appreciated because all it's LeBron expect what exactly do expect that from abroad expect from Michael Jordan expect from Tom Brady from Aaron Rodgers right to save their team right now that the cavs have won fifteen of the last sixteen and in that time. James has averaged 479 and nine so we don't. It fifteen years and it is ridiculous right now you can named the MVP who's your front and would be LeBron would beat James. I believe he's. So you know it's hard to legally but Ali your heart I'm sorry other public does everything and he does do everything. Second and reports second to OK I. His name is going to be up and around their four years to come back dude it's true you for no question and we finish up its. With a sell the hard sell on the week fifteen. There's a football game it's statements former teams ladies and gentlemen. You as the Broncos a square off tonight in India against the colts listen the party both been eliminated from playoff contention but you know what here's a little tidbit. This is the last Thursday night game. Disease or there you go there is and Alaska so color rush and the cholera tactical to be an all blue. And Denver will be at all Warren to collect the cream to cool like that Tampa Bay Bucs do every now and I'm. Any larger percentage of Garza the FBI football power index percentages on things like here's percent of does that mean you probably don't really want me here. If you're cold then you have a 92% chance of getting a top five pick. If you're Broncos. You have a 93% chance negating the top ten. Maybe you do wanna hear that this pointed to season of lost you know maybe obviously wanted to ties pick as you can possibly get. Dole for the best impossible draft that you can get and by the way. The other thing we you know we we all talked with a snow game last week you and I loved it yep other people had different opinions I love watching those guys run around the snow. Someone who might not like that so much was at a military right. Missed a field goal any drop below. 90% on the year now he has. A clause in his contract. That says if he kicks in 90% of his field goals. The making extra 500000 wells. Which look I get a piece of impressionable boy have been around for a long time he made a ton of money out of thousands Barbara that's exactly right five grandest five grand I underground by a hundred and that's what I just short of fire reported 5000 dollars. Again not really a morning person Mel so. For him to get back overt 90% on the year. He's gonna have to make. Five straight field next five sauter also get five chances to sniper if he makes his next five goes five for five. He's back at that 90% and that's who you grab enemy yet they can't do it anymore Mac that I got a bad infected toenail on my kicking it quite swinging the leg got a with the authority I'd like to. He is amazing though the daddy is still out there and doing it. On it built for him to those games are are at home in a dome climate controls so maybe that'll. Certainly help melts all see what happens and let's make at a military by the way our player was style OK brought you by JC Penney. Take the JC Penney holiday challenge and find surprising gives at surprising prices get everything on your list for less than you think. At JC Penney. So again this is the last Thursday night game and you know there's been so much debate. About the authors and I can write the next Thursday that game I believe will be golfing game right in in Kenton Ohio which is always a great trip if your football fan. Get out there once in your life because it is really a a fun thing and we'll talk about this you know nonstop. What the Thursday night football game means but again I've. Your point is always been its once a year except for maybe one other one of the two teams that plays on a Thanksgiving anyway it was to be the lines in the cowboy right right. And we suck we do start to get Saturday against Bryant read a couple of we have Kansas City and the charger yup Heussler that's at a prime time that a playoff we are couple of some Saturdays as well also. You stood still love that it's all of those days because you may sit there say you don't like them on those days and I'll summoned to don't have many more on those days when I'll watch out well during your little heart for Russia. Sole CEO that plays out going for gold and we go on ESPN radio NE SP into presented by progressive insurance cellphone guess will join us including Ron Rivera and a little bit. On the show pencil performance on big game for the Carolina Panthers coming up this. On Sunday as they welcome in the Green Bay Packers. The white we talked about it earlier on the show and there was a great article on Sports Illustrated and the MM QB site. Basically. The researchers at at the brain institute in Boston believe that they might be able to have a test within the next five years. That can't determine. Any person alive whether or not they have CT chronic traumatic encephalopathy which is in damage to the brain. That causes all kinds of issues and it's been talked about a lot of with football players but it's also an issue in hockey players. And soccer basically any contact sport where you where there are collisions. A CT is going to be there. In what they did they asked a lot of current players. If there was a test right that you could take right now because the only you can detect CT. Right now is post mortem nose after you die. If there was a test right now that you could take to determine whether or not as a current football player you had CT would you take it. And among the players they asked they asked Kirk cousins the quarterback for the moment of Washington Redskins will see where he goes in the off seasons they ask a linebacker to your wife dead. Of the lions they asked the senator Ryan coil the panthers' Chris Long of the Eagles. The defensive end and they gave a bunt as well as Dion Jordan and already burns a quarterback for the with the Steelers. They gave a bunch of different answers but it seemed like the majority of them said I would like to know. Whether or not I had and then you brought up an interesting point up about your take on the situation here. Yeah my my initial thought. When I first heard. Would you take it again we're talking about the majority in the pros certainly. This test can be used for a lot of great research which which nugget into. My first initial thought OK if I'm in the NFL right now and I could academic ethnic Tommy five TT my initial thought once. User cure for and the answer is no at this point there is all I would say then why why wanna know I have something that can't be cured when all would be. Is on my mind all the time and that's one of the things Chris Long was a very thoughtful guy. About a lot of these things and endured again a lot of great things off the field as well. He said I it would be hard not to change you if you knew he said it would be in the back of your head. It beings I would be they're thinking about the fact that you have its say you didn't have DP and then do you were told you did. That can cause mental and emotional problems you know in knowing that all of a sudden so. That would be my thought is that initially that was my thought of okay you tell me. If I have better dornin if I have there's no cure for now what so what does that do for me all it did was all my god now I have this now. Yeah if if you see what's coming down the road you know if you see what's happened other people's second happened to me is it I don't know listen I'm 5455. Played nine years in the league in college and high school Little League and I'm buying right now who knows I took the test tomorrow and I had had a but I'm I'm fine I've I had no issues and also. That I started thinking about that and saying you know what. I think it would be good and Michael Bennett kind of touched on that. Basically saying he said wired players should be required. Ought to know to take the test in our profits for the same reasons were I'm going to bring up put. I I think as far as researchers concern I think it would be good to know but one thing they have to come with that because we are still in the finding out phase of a lot of things of what are some of the other part of things that that are involved or could be involved in this. You know from steroid take OP Lloyd's to drugs or recreational drugs that the one thing I think. Four players to get a true. Researcher in his area of this is to make sure you give me an honest history of yourself. Right you know of all that but there are other people that that have done not done those things they still had McDonald's and I don't I understand it but that's off our researchers are getting all the information. You can get someone that says. I've I've I rarely ever ever take painkillers I don't drink I've never done steroids and I don't do drugs you get someone of thereon to say. And I take painkillers anytime I can't get back on the field. Yes I've done steroids you know I do drink so you gotta put that all there is part of the recent I guess that's my point. I would I would say now yes I would do it because I think. It would be great for the research to get everybody's history over it. You have an idea you're not if you do what's your history and if you don't what's your history what are what are some factors are subside that you may the other thing years. Is the reason I think I would get it now is what a fight got a while I was playing. And I was told you have it but it stage one from what I understand there's four stages of CT so then you're like okay this is stage one. You know I've a short should have a choice anyway but now if they're thick concrete evidence that you know you have it and its stage one. You can retire you get out you say you know I'm not gonna let this manifest itself anymore. Or do you say well I had stage one I'm still gonna keep playing it can give you those options so while I initially would have said. I don't know prisoners procure. I've come around on that after that initial thought and say I think we'll be good the more we know all the more research we can have. And the better hopefully we can treat this and or. Could we dare I say you find a cure for this which obviously is something your old form and I've no clue about that. Well there's a couple things get into their one you know the more research you can find out about it leads to a cure one of the one of the most horrible these these diseases out there is Huntington's disease. Which is is basically people describe it it is really horrible way as parkinson's alzheimer's and mortar neuron disease rolled into one. They've done a lot of research to test people and their. Now may be experimenting with that experimental drug and that may prevent and so the idea is if you can diagnose it that leaves are maybe down the road. To hopefully finding some sort of cure for this thing. But I guess that the candidate for player like yourself who you are 55 years old I don't have a different perspective right but you did when you were 29 exactly or continue. Now gold could you now realistically. Blackened to 29 year old mode and what you thought now. As opposed to what you thought then wouldn't it with a infamy what is very very possible which. Ages is information you say the key word there because one you playing. Sports when you're playing for blogger I speak as a football however I think most professional athletes the business I was in for you know for a long time. You feel invincible and that won't happen to me. To Niblock that your ankle broken get something happens to the opera field that's horrible but it won't happen to me now what happens if you are hit with the you haven't you've been diagnosed. You have CTE now it has happened view so you have that information. What where's that invincibility now do you still feel that where you're like you kind of need to be on this yet you don't feel you're like so every it's a nice start taken and that's the thing because we don't know would be starting this would be brand New York talk about. You know is still in the infancy of it now we're finding out about the living people. And their histories and how are all can come together for people ways smarter than us to try to figure this thing out but now what do you do with that information. Now you know you're not invincible. You know you as you can get her but now you've been diagnosed with this in your life okay. Now what do I do right you know there are some players that would sit there or that would say I'm just gonna keep quiet. And there I'm sure there were the other could resent it may leave the players they talked you said it would keep recent weeks she guys that have retired and don't know. But have walked away from him more guys are retired now so. And it's like getting also more information you have so I think this would be a good thing and that's why I wouldn't do it. Who helped with the information grab to try and get a better outcome. Look it's a really interesting question that they pose on SA dot collar and getting these people involved in getting these players involved. The bottom line is if your five of five years away from may be diagnosing it may be manually five years away from a cure and and that's the thing that goes forward. We'll see how that research continues but again. It's like that old slogan the more you know ya and it seems like if we can get a handle on how to diagnose it then maybe you get a better handle on how to treat it and potentially hopefully down the road cure it.

You know who doesn't care at all about the Packers playoff chances group they'll be Ron Rivera there's really does own of the airline apparent there's and he joins us now on goal can we go rob thanks for being with us always appreciate your time. So Aaron Rodgers coming back this week. What did that do if anything to how your gonna game plan this Green Bay Packers offense. And didn't do anything guy's domain you know in honesty the few weeks ago let all of you know we first heard that he was throwing the ball on the sideline and it was before the Pittsburgh game. Baby and before that. You know the anticipation of what that he was coming back we nude at their whole goal was to try to keep themselves and playoff position they've done Matt. So it doesn't surprise me we weren't surprised him and we felt we should just go at game plan for what they do that they did they've done in the past with the with Aaron. And then react from there so our our our whole attitude and our outlook on coming up against Green Bay what we expected to play because there Rogers. You know rob a lot of times you know rather than scouting the team you're gonna play self scouting a lot of times American can take care of a lot of issues for you and other than. Getting some healthy players back what is been the biggest difference on the field for you guys who went in five your last six games. Well I think its docket that is we have gotten to know the guy back but I do think we're playing better and I heard your comment about you know at the end of the here's how you're playing. And and that's what they don't we wanted to do is we try to you know once we got into December yourself an opportunity to get them while I think a big part reduced. ER quarterback again he didn't have a normal loss see get the surgery to have OJ mini camp. Yeah. Yeah a little setback during training camp because it happened type training camp would like to. Couple that with with some of the new players you have around him and couple that with the other of the trade we made the middle of the year. And I think we really started to find our footing well all things I think is very important especially this time of the year. Ron Rivera apparently is that coach joins us on goal can we go and run we had Thomas Davis. Well on nod NFL live yesterday and he talked a little bit about the confidence this team has knowing that they have gone into. New England and beaten the patriots and then had a home game against one of the hottest teams in the NFL. The Minnesota Vikings and really push them around I don't was a close game. Down the stretch but really dominated that team up front and then Kim makes a super play with that 62 yard run to set up the game winning touchdown by Jonathan Stewart. Where is the confidence level of your team heading into this matchup. Arkansas I think where you need to be this mission this time we hear it guys feel good about the day that we've accomplished we've done so Barbara. You know again it is really easily about what have you done for me lightly so it. You know all I can disappear you don't come out play well I thought she gets another good football team led by a very good football by Purdue quarterback. How is you know we talk about all Greg Olsen coming back he comes back connector Dan sits out. Such a great player Ed Dickson quite honest he's on a nice job sitting here at times tremendous no doubt about that but. How I am Greg obviously seemed to be a week to week guy where oh where is he now. And I think take another big step I think last week played an entire game really build confidence Cilic nothing about it players to come back guess New York. That was a turf field that was you know that that that new Turkoglu rivers call. I know the next game against New Orleans is on that turf and so. After what happened with New York we opted not. I am against New Orleans to get the chance you get to Minnesota on the grass he dramatic game and he got a lot of confidence came out of practice yesterday it looked like. You know Greg you ran really good round yesterday seemed to move around cut pivot off that but what was really no thought about it so. I think is confident this is it's back where it needs to be in terms of being healthy eating. Ron Rivera with a solid gold and we go and you mentioned cam and the things he's been able to do we talked about that 62 yard run. He's only averaging about 210 yards passing per game the lowest of his career but is rushing yards are up to over 45. Which would be the second most in the season so as you're looking at cam and the way he's gonna lead this offense is it more about his running now hours or more but trying to get that passing game going. I knew more about keeping the balance more than anything else you don't. And some gangly guy to throw the ball broke during argue and and and and the result and a victory for us. Other times when when when he's needed to run the ball he's trying to force an older victory rushing down the stretch so far. I think the one thing about it too loses it's not just his running but running of the cobalt. You can control the clock. The other branches off the field. It helps your defense that it helped to help your on your team at all so I got one more important thing is really we don't we needed to do what he does. You know he's got to come through force whether to destroy the ball and his writing but right now here running the ball so this has been very fact. Did do that point since his rookie year he's the only player in the NFL with at least five rushing touchdowns every season not the only quarterback right the only player that has at least five rushing touchdowns every season since one -- again we're target Ron Rivera head coach of the Carolina Panthers it was a second rounder back at me for the bears won that Super Bowl 85 NFL coach of the year 2013. And 2015 off the beaten path on one we saw that game in buffalo with the snow hi how would you like that where you are where you are I don't mind playing in the snow kind of a guy. And a yeah good he had no choice beer vision goggles shooter pure as snow and sleet hail whatever you have to play or fog for that matter. Yes you heard. It was a lot of fun it really what is normal thing to do drew about the kids is somebody gonna play him you know the public just lower re on a muddy field. Yeah I saw that it was kind of cool deal it is funny that I I was able would text back and forth was some of the guys and all the buffalo obviously. We laughed about it what they went through IG GQ when you went for them so it was kind of cool. Rob we know you gotta big game to get ready for sure to keep you too long but I wanna ask you a about Cam Newton and his post game attire I mean the brim with sort of fez for lack of a better serve this past weekend. And Tim Hasselbeck has come up with a with a saying he doesn't think what cameras wearing as an outfit. He think every week it seems to be a costume. How much do you guys wait to see what Cam Newton is gonna Wear those post game press conferences. We've got to look forward we we we we we we we find that you earned it. It's a good thing is you know you just make a statement on as well you know you want to be his own guy. Dylan and I think that's that says that's part of who he did that and so we're you know I mean it's it's. It to me there's really no harm and I'm not quite sure why you know so people get all this order upset about it because. Again he's just you know he just kind of beat his old guy make his own statement. And that's off the field.
