All we are getting ready for the second full weekend of football and we are glad you're with us on a Friday morning go doing go ESPN radio and ESPN news. We are presented by progressive insurance all phone guests join us on the shell Pennzoil performance on Michael Wood tree we go here and delighted to be joined as we will throughout the entire season but are frying ESPN and a finalist Tedy Bruschi in studio really given us the straight talk. Brought to buy straight talk wireless best phones that's networks no contract he's been doing it for a decade here now but he has yet. I still can't believe in it yeah can you believe an entertainer went by fact it flies does yeah it is amazing. I think it's too and then this I love Friday all but yeah I don't I don't work them at the weekend crew or anything like that and this is really the end of my weakness so. Football starts for me I drive home policy might my son's high school foot hey that's the good stuff it's it's as well as I would balk he's doing well yes we're nearly his junior now. Much more skilled than I was actually a play Dallas offense guard defense just tackle right he's running back linebacker today. Things always a linebacker shocked by yeah. And isn't it risky place to linebacker 2.0. Do Bruschi 2.0 better gas down. Updated it's a very got a nice Reba how that got the cool thing yeah odds are thought you were saying Friday of practice who's usually your favorite. Data week. Mine was always Saturday walk through this Friday when I was when we're playing on a Buddy Ryan if we lost. We went pats. Or or at least stoppers but I most of time pads as you go Wednesday Thursday for are now I know you make you don't really don't want to weaker fourteen for the season. So sometimes I hated Friday. Practice whose would still be impaired the senator walk through dollars about some lesser one of the rookies Bernard don't get there in the mortar right now rescuing the Dunkin' Donuts here in that area ams and all that stuff I was that rookie had to bring them in a while to. Bring the hold and get blocks of cost yes yes that is. But the clock back off in a plastic bag alive it's a great time and not. I'd Teddy let's get in the first and foremost we twos already underway with the Thursday night game. The Bengals for the first time in franchise history of scored thirty points and each of the first two games what do we make of what we think. To Cincinnati so far oh. I know how I mean there are drinker passions and special 2.2 there two and oh and things like that but outbreaks. Let him you got so many by you have nothing for the the entire weekend I can understand where he's from met him or he's how he's feeling right Greg we got the victory I don't got to worry about anything even another opponent until probably next week yeah we're pretty good with the and they looked pretty good last night I say offensively for this spurs Cincinnati. They looked different when Joseph makes it was either in or out right it was just different what what Joseph was doing in terms of may be. A three yard run by Geovany Bernard was a 45 or six yard run by mixing because of the strength and explosion and even a little check downs where. A burst he has from zero to five yards is is impressive to me is something that I noticed and so that type of efficiency in that running that running back having him in there there's a difference in that offense. AJ green. Is that you gotta find I think that's we will how we would game plan him in the during the week is the first thing you would say it's whereas in this busy outside is the inside and when he's inside he got to find some way to double because it's it's a lot easier to have those combinations that double number it. They just find a way to get him open he had spectacular and I. He certainly did our first time in his career he's a red two touchdown catches in the first quarter of the gaming. At three in the first half so that's how it got started. Arm and led him I think the one of the big marquee matchup this week is going to be the pitchers going down to Jacksonville. To take on the jaguars. Obviously this is huge pitch quarterback and with Tom Brady overplayed portals but how much does it help that. That listen Graf is going to be their memory missed most of the AFC championship game after that concussion when he sort of felt very churches helmet coming out of this guy making that catch. He is going to be on the field that looks at letter for that may not be projects. I think that's a big thing for Jacksonville that's moved to a they don't have four net. I mean like I just talked about genomics and six around the six yard run rather than a three yard run by Geovany Bernard maybe that's the same that's that that's the physical presence I don't know as a defender. If I got that back there. Your play actions going to be duplex is gonna be more effective too because I'm when I respect that run a little bit more. And I heard how we talked about the quarterbacks trade portals and Brady there's a big difference but. There's a big difference in terms of who they are but portals. The best Blake portals I've seen in the past is when he's simple and he's he doesn't like what he sees his number one receivers not open and he takes off. Because he's got a running tied in basically I mean he's 64236. However big he is and he's athletic he can run and I remember that playoff run they had but he just take off and move those chains in the divisional round about. You know just third and ten he's running third mate he'd convert that tap public orders I think it's dangerous. So and then there's that the flood were having because we're on the side of the microphone on the Jalen Ramsey kind of smack talk that he is had to grind our koskie had a very entertaining answer. To a lot of that but. The stats do bear out that went rockets are by linebacker safety he catch a ball basically around 70% of the time and by cornerback. 50% of the time why. I'm not sure. Maybe it's just the quarterback to when he sees that quarter matchup I mean the placement of the ball he's a little bit more careful I'm not sure those those numbers depending on who with a quarterback I don't wanna buy into no yeah but then David it's a pretty big difference in disparity of core of our percentage against a quarterback you're you're probably gonna have tighter coverage if it is a linebacker or safety I tell you that because I mean in jail -- on him he's got that links that a lot of defenders don't have that. It's always gonna turn into a jump ball situation. It's at a UN gronkowski so. I mean that's that's where they would have success I anticipate Jalen on him on every down basis but it's gonna happen right in our respective trash talk I mean I mean. Mean they won't they'll suppress it in the wing and locker rooms until Sunday and beaten when they get between the lines I mean. Because before the AFC championship game last year when Brady even took a look them up but instead a few things to win this that the passage of time just volatile area. Every time even with without us in practice I mean it was trash talking this isn't yet a friend of mine you try to. You know try to have that you don't wanna give them any bulletin board material I understand that IS and Jalen Ramsey gusty Ty Law. Where he talked one of the great quarterback that. That I played for us who was we put him on Jerry Rice Michael Irvin didn't matter and I would say whatever he wanted to say right time so you. Your post disregard the corner with a big mouth. Well Lindsay already asked you what's gonna happen it is exactly listen that's a position where you better have a lot of companies in a short memory so it probably works to his advantage. And you mentioned build build billboard the trash talk a little listened to gras here. You know working with the media because I think people had this image of grunt of what he is and what he isn't and I think he's actually the exact opposite so this is. This is people in New England talking to rock about what Jill Ramsey says. Sure I mean there's always the motivation you're looking for I mean it doesn't. And of itself that it's trickier there. Doesn't get doesn't give you answers you looking for. Those sort trick question you're trying to get really serious right. If it does or doesn't you know I mean. Does that mean it motivates you in that. You know obviously there's there's something out there that he saw on film stuff probably give better. A full book and in some certain categories I mean. You know we feel about us every single naming on the field so. That's how it feels as though the news. I mean I think people have this image abroad as this like sort of created in a lab. Idiots that just goes up every play football Mimi had a lot smarter than people give him. Four you have especially football Smart and he's learned how to deal with those things well but acted. Markets since the irritation in terms of saying maybe he sees that he sees something on film that I can improve that insurer maybe edit that that are that irritation comes out on Sunday all hit it really does and I remember gronkowski thrown some Indianapolis COLT offender into a camera. You know when they started talking some trash on Sunday night Gaby thrown out of the club had absolutely have no club no T shirts and your body and I look up. Absolutely so. It it it boils it boils in this the asked the way bill likes it because he'll he'll build it up himself. In terms of plays and quo Regis some quotes on Wednesday. Talk to you about him in the media Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday. Night before the game maybe he'll just let it all out and and then tell you what he really feels he's done that before that you go to bed ready to play so. Along that that lime energy said it completely agreed it is not like were ever Broncos Jalen Randy is gonna go he's going to be back to bottom some but I don't think a majority of the game but they will be matched up some. So through all this and you said it does get irritating but in front of the microphone you wanna play it off. So when that match up happens in the game obviously Tom sees it proxies that. Then you're trying to get to a man do you try and let him win that battle or does Tom still say. I'm still go for the best coverage is going to be you know do you let me get that personal or you try to attack that. And try and win that battle. Did you ever try to prove the point yes prove the point through the week and yes you do. And I've been in those situations on the sidelines where yes you wanna prove the point but the scores and you you've been we've been up by 21 when he forced around like that because OK because that is they don't point yeah yeah yeah don't want to. Let the distractions affect the plans. Right so the plan is. If gronkowski early on is Ramsey on you well if you get single coverage. I will throw it right right right ramseys outside wide I'm not thrown any receivers are telling you right now come and inside but you're up twenty you're up 21 was I don't know if it's gonna get or maybe it's late in the quarter that. Game they're ten or something like then it's like. Let's prove this point yes grow uncle had run a wouldn't throw it to you and then when we get in the end zone we'll see what happens spike in their faces and state and all that stuff so that's and I think that would happen yeah but they don't let that distract the plan. They just you just can't because an intellectually. Mean there's so many adjustments that they have on can speak especially defensively. Friesen happened post now that once it's over and it's been successful play. And you you almost feel like letting it out because that's again. I Teddy look at Bruschi here for a little girl analysts I think the only capped ever play in the NFL we we look at some research for that we think you're the only one who is joining us on a football Friday talk of a week to the NFL was and everybody was raving about Sam Arnold after the Monday night win in Detroit. Little could've got off to a worse start first pass picked sixth and leads into the 31 unanswered. But really to me Teddy as I watched that game against Detroit. What impressed me most was that defense of the jets now I don't know how much of that was alliance. And how much of that when these young guns on defense but I'm telling you pharma jets fan right now I feel more comfortable on what are expecting out of that defense that I do at a Sam's arm. What a great game of linebacker Darren Lee Paul he was spectacularly had a couple backer tracker this week possible very possible I let them know let how. I did a good yet again he's been trying he's been improving actually struggling as a young linebacker as I've watched them but that might have been his best game saw bro that's kind of field in terms of then overall game and even taken away those big plays so to have you always want the young young. Up and coming teams when he was Carolina it was it was can that it was loops quickly you know you almost had it in Oakland if they would've kept Julio Mac and then also dare car things like that but. If Arnold and leave those type of players step up for the jet team and defensively I loved watching that young I'm back in the game he had it was it was great for that entire organization. Let's sort of the other side of that in the amount appointed judge put up against Detroit now led by Matt Patricia guy you certainly know right off Patricia before he was at the corners and the offensive side of the ball knowing forbid middle linebackers coach I know. Obviously that's my coach as well as it was your court to us why should you know him well. What what was going on there do you believe I mean his first defense of Miami coach given of that may appoint his first time as a head coach. So you know there is a fighting to happen this week was that I was of course they can about how they got blown out and how they can possibly do that and then. My son came up to me said he said do you remember her last year's week one vs new England and what Kansas City did to them. You know and how it was it was like what's going on the wheels are falling often they have free runners in Korean hunt breaks through and all that stuff but they ended up settling down it was almost. The same thing in terms of does it take a young defense to grasp everything that that complex defense is trying to teach I think it does. I think it does absolutely so. September of being an extension of the pre season probably for Matt Patricia and that young defense and a pass Maloney is defense of coordinator may be they need to get on. On the same page maybe Patricia needs to have a little more input I don't know the inputs sort of percentage is there but. Kansas City last year very similar to all so what happened to Detroit and then they ended up right that is interest. As far as the input there all I remember when it went Buddy Ryan was our coach Jeff Fisher was a running the defense and Jeff was kind of learning on under underneath them a little bit so. That's a good point of of where is that responsibility between. And it's just laughed you know it's it's. It's the NFL than you know lions fans get emotional in the motor city kitty started calling this yes yeah after we caught the hard thing to go win and not only try to teach and a culture change of hopefully winning not only to a team but two of and that is also that. One week really isn't gonna tell you season. It's 161 week seasons that's everybody needs to understand Tedy Bruschi is what is and you guys understood that better than anyone. And you can understand maybe what's going on an Oakland better than anyone because. People like forget. Before 2003. Day here you guys released lawyer Malloy you saved one of the leaders on the defense I was very upset you were. Very that was the most that was the most I've ever seen players upset at bill in in a patriot tenure. You've got smoked that first game 31 nothing in buffalo. And then obviously things went on to work welcomes you to go on with a Super Bowl that year but how. Danger aren't dangerous how. How cautious do they have to be in Oakland because they couldn't get any pressure on jerk off the rams after trading we collect they get outscored 23 to nothing in the second half. And now Teddy they go on the road to Denver. As long as case came isn't throwing three picks in the game I think Denver's going to be a really tough out for a lot of people especially at all. How critical is it for the raiders to find a win quick. Police in September I think it's huge because going back to that story of us when the lawyer was straight you guys insist even seminoles talking about being more loyal to my high school and my college that was for the New England Patriots that sounds that I was by the we went on the road after that game to Philadelphia. And then when we and then we we got the victory there and then sort of accord was cut about all of our feelings that's what I think it's so critical for them to get that win because now I think Jon Gruden. With all of his guys supposedly that he's brought in how well does he really know them because how well other people that that believe in what's going on there. Are gonna step up and make plays for him and believe currents going and so that's that's huge to look at. How they played. In terms of they played like it is it is them vs the world mentality. Because that's the best that's the best feeling you can half in the locker room that no one thinks we can do this you know people think we're against our head coach by. May winning a game and in him showing my way does work it's crucial for them to do that very soon. The dole through your one and more they can't do better it's going to be a problem. The the highest three game this week is going to be out without question giants at Dallas for sure. Told Owens who team out of this much trouble or are we look out for the team. All huh. I don't wanna say I don't contribute to kinda how they place when I don't wanna say it's. Catastrophic to start over into amid a lot of teams have had success and you gonna take a lot of top mental toughness to get that. Man I just think. I really think. Those cowboys need this win the whole game they were to go over into via home game in also. Now I think Jason Garrett as a head coach I just don't know how good he'd beat a rally in the troops and I think that's what would need to happen and if you're Owen to. Another coach I know he's been there awhile but to get these guys believe in that OK we do have some injuries we do have some things going on but still okay or often running coach we're with Tia. I think Dallas needs that mentality. Are dead deck press guy has thrown for under 200 yards none of the 300 Douby under 200 yards. In eight of his last eleven games are obviously it was a problem make generator almost no offense we won at Carolina. How much of that do you blame on. Jack how much do you blame on a lack of play making wide receivers or that running game that offensive line not being what it was two years ago. I mean norm I need I want focuses specifically on the run game and realize in Lebanon. An easy Hugh Elliot is just the player you just have to lean on constantly because I think Dax a better quarterback that way. And I distorting. If you trying to figure out who you have with debt and great he had a great rookie year and now we think we're on to something and now I think he's a guy that we can throw 3040 times a game you. That's not who years I just don't think he's that type of quarterback he is. He's solid quarterback that can win you a lot of football games if you do what the right way but. Mean if you think he's going to be that Drew Brees that next Drew Brees or Aaron Rodgers Tom Brady. Mean your real weapon is the offensive line Ezekiel Elliott you got to play off that constantly. Yet the numbers back that up the cowboys are twelve and two winning an 857 clip. When Jack has fewer than thirty pass attempts in his starts over the last two seasons they are ten and eight colonias thirty attempts a more in that starting. He feels more comfortable yet this feels more comfortable because you can feel as a as a defender. And and I know you're not gonna throw it forty plus times are over 35 times. I have a different mentality in terms of against the run game I mean I have to moderate more if I don't moderate and deeper in my stance as a linebacker I'm helping on the slot receiver because I just don't respect you and I think that it's just need to go away to go away from. So dad can feel that also so he's got to have that right right over wrong move buffalo bill's goal to rookie Josh Allen. It's the right move I mean finally you you hope that Nathan Peter mentioned that a box is some more time and half for the kid. But that's about all I mean it's time you gotta look entertainments to step away from an emotionally. And try to think. I gotta keep my team believe in that. What do what's best for the team. And I gotta take this kid out because the conclusion in the book can probably be close based on your team has seen Peter men do in regular season action to hats I this year on what I understand in the pre season I saw him to only get. I beat you deserve the art ML pretty quick note out about and hopefully he can about Alan maybe 23 games at time unfortunately was barely three quarters now but. That's who it is you gotta go with the kids. Right at Teddy mall most importantly as we always do you show up every day you're trying to win one championships and why they keep taking away your championships on an ally tape off while it's possible he'll have a runner. This week Teddy puts together these amazing dates he wins the popular vote and by some Barbara cherry red or judge they take it away give it to somebody I don't. Always shaft there you know maybe it's some type of rewards system that would Woodson has with him I mean I even tried to lunch after I'm reading this book you know so that's that's our topic I get a voter timely topic I. I'm I'm just taking a trial around here winning championships and they are taken away from you and that's not right it's a it's not right here if you like colonial like today's tape a ball in on a well. We're big on bloating on the show early crust that aren't true or not gonna feel too bad fraternity guys have a little bit of success that he's managed to when you have visited just that you're either. It's my addiction and addiction now he's big into winning he's all about championships. Remember when you couldn't order a ride in the press of a bargain online without hearing.

I got my as you all Monroe and 27 against Texas CNN it is an ultimate rotten sandwich game for the Yankees. Last week emotional. Gut wrenching loss at home to Clemson. Next week there on the road for their SEC opener against Alabama this week the old war hawks come to town there are huge favorite. The old when the game when I'm gonna take it picked you all Monroe 127. All right I'm gonna look at Texas is a three point favorite at home. Play Helen won in nine as an underdog.

What our one and all beach last week he NFL pick of the week lock of the week you got. Watched every second of my jets beat up on alliance the Monday night so I'm coming back with the Detroit Lions get to six against San Francisco they're not get a quote both teams in need of a win. Lions are not gonna play as bad as it did the other day. You mean the lines plus six. I'm gonna have to say to Arizona Cardinals plus twelve and a half that's the biggest spread on the board victim not of looked worse. In week one the rams really turned it on the second half on Monday night. Give me the worst team on the board Arizona Cardinals. ESPN. And Apple's. Facilities every Wednesday. First why we have to take umbrage at Stanford Steve I don't know who's listening to this to ever save everybody is not listening world list right now I don't don't discount to yourself man you you were great last week. Were given you this big format buddies lewis' they're perceive in there I completely agree with that and have all the teams they mention the one that they mentioned that made me think again. No wins this team coming back. Next tax light on Tom Herman goes out there to try and try and save the day out there. And you know they lose their opening weekend to Maryland they were last week against Tulsa 2821. Now they have USC and TCU back to back. An Ed that's. There's got to be a whole lot of texted him by the way I think and I'm just overtook Texas as the making the most money program yup in college football or Texas have been printing money for ever long we know we know the history of that and they've they've certainly been on some hard times but. Made your way Tom armor was that name you know that young assistant while successful let's bring MM let's turn this around. And certainly still has some time but. No I I I think people are really kind of thing OK you've got to be about that time we got to get this thing going to do. Get literally is no is now is sit and again as we're talking college football so many of the games. Along the East Coast in the south specifically the southeast are being affected by hurricane Floyd's witches. Are coming across and making landfall I think now even as we speak so. I'd definitely for those you in that part of the area we hope that if you're listening year you're safe. Because this thing heal its its like hurricane Harvey. Mike a year ago by the way when this was coming out just reminded less than what a what a great thing JJ watt was able to do know last year by raising all that money for support. Offer hurricane RB. It's not the way to do it all it's a category two that's not going to be as bad.

The locker room back cammarata right right because there's no place like a locker room or our dugout where every wanna call it in sports whatever that is. That that place where no matter where you come from no matter what your background is no matter what you believe in. You put that all aside for one common goal and I think that. You'll never find that in any other walk of the matter what you do you'll never be able to find something that replaces that as a former now. Now I mean and so well respected by everybody to be the captain and just what he gave an you know a guy who's missed so many games but. So you look at that deal he signed in 2013 a year for 130 million dollars a lot of people are SL man was not a bad contract vote you know to me there's a difference. My son talked about this morning on his show and I completely agree there is a deal that she sighed and that person under performs right where you say boy we're really blew it on that one. There's a deal you sign. And the person then start getting injuries correct that's something that they can't control completely and if and it wasn't like you signed him in 2013. Coming off of all man he's been nicked up you look you got you've got into the bigs with the Mets in 2004 plate 69 games and then from 2005. To 2012. Save for one year. All those are the years were a 14460. Games that he played he was on the field he was playing. Any sign that big contract and unfortunately. In 2013 he signed it and his last game was may of 2016. You're talking back neck shoulder injuries where he was asking you keep going he just said basically the doctors don't think it's gonna get any better. So is gonna have to walk away from the game so there's no way you can sit there and say man that was a horrible deal they they they signed her to back then. Based off the fact that he was available for them all the time and then started getting hurt after that and like I said it's all well respected. In what he has done stole a lot of money solo point seven million over the next two years. For this but it's nice. He said he wants his daughter to see him play so he's gonna get on the field September 29 back at third base so be a very cool way. For him to close out his career and for the fans to let them know just how they feel about a missed while yet. Again we're talking about a guy who was once voted the face of baseball Mena was a good player might he was a great player. And now David Wright for better or for worse and for his sake it's probably worse. He joins that list of what might had a bit you know like where's he on the list and so long target right thirteen years and knowing that big green beautiful Mario it's not quite. He got like four or five years and many was darn right it makes you wonder how great he could have been that the things he could have done if he had stayed healthy because. There are always those guys have been the one that immediately comes to mind. In the NF felony and up going to the hall famous who's Terrel Davis no yeah I mean Terrelle was at still at the peak of his game. When he was running for the Denver Broncos and again the way he got hurt was the most. It's the freaky is way he was hustling back after an interception to try and make a tackle. And often sublime was also part and parcel hustling back. Sort of clipped him and that's what blew out his name now in UB there's no there's a list of guys Grant Hill the same way it was just and decent basketball progress already has robbed by Ian I. Look at guys before the hearing got to show they were great like a Greg Oden yeah up your Greg Oden a top pick in the draft picks senator from Ohio State and just. Right off the bat you know lower body injuries that just took a scorer way so at least some of these players you've got to. She's our greatness for a little bit but it just wasn't sustained. Over and a number of years. Because of injuries fighters guys like that work Kaman was so much hype and that got injured right away and they never got to even see that and here and neither fruits of their labor. All right and that's why we CDs careers these longevity is what LeBron is doing in the NBA it would Brady's Jerry Rice should die every right now just appreciated. Man because. Joseph Thomas for crying out loud. Never missed a snap amid I get a broken shoe lace up prevented that and it took his arm basically to fall off but that biceps and as far as danger even John I've heard Jerry Rice admitted third Larkin ball course there is luck involved in in having that longevity and not getting that major injury because this is just one. That step one bad hit one freaky play. And all of a sudden your rehab and a major injury that can affect you on down the road so while preparation is huge put your body in the best position possible. Two to sustain anything like that. And then there is big there there is lock. You know not having to go through that are having anything like that happen you you like I said I'm not saying it's all blocked I understand the world are involved but there's no doubt it's part of. We'll get in any streak there's going to be. Some something cal Ripken could just gonna go yeah I think Jack you're just gonna go your way you can say I prepared for this and I prepared for that now. In anything that involves a lengthy amount of time. In a in a physical contact or collision sport out football. Can't export in in basketball there's an element of luck that goes in you can have all the skill on the world you can bad things are gonna have to bounce your way and by the way speaking of lock. Yet but he said he sold 27 million dollars government nothing will ever top of Bobby veneer Contra yet again the body but he I think stop playing for the Mets in the early ninety's or late night of may be mid mid ninety's. He's gonna collected check for one point 1932. Point four you almost one point two million dollar drama one point two million dollars for the New York Mets. Every July 1. Until 2035. Until 2030. Operator structured deal that's not what I'm scale now that's smarts on Bobby veneer to take that deferred money paid out. It's like that line in the jerk or Steve Martin have a right almost shafts they write that check every year to Bobby via. Until 2035. I'd coming up in the next hour go to when you're a seven time Pro Bowl did something for the first time last night in his career. And how much does that bode well for what his team may be doing going forward would get to all of that plus a lot of college football we come back stay with us.
