The post Episode 33: appeared first on Wildfire Radio.

Hey, Philly fans, do you remember when we threw snowballs at Santa Claus? Well, maybe you don't remember it like you were there or maybe we're a little young, but the national media certainly won't let us free can forget it. It's an easy shot to take. It a starving fan base. Well, guess what, the hungry dogs finally got a blight to eat. This podcast is here to fight against the cartoon character of the rude, ignorant Philly Fan. This is a passionate fan base with knowledge to make your head spin, and this podcast is going to bring you the perspective of different generations of Eagle season ticket holders and fans when it comes to the Eagles, football, Philly sports and whatever else is on our minds. Remember, there's always two sides to every story. Did people ever stop and think maybe, just maybe, Santa Booed first? Thanks for listening in, and don't forget, no one likes us, we don't care. Good afternoon, sports fans. You are listening live to the Santa boot first podcast. We are back in studio after a nice little break, and in studio this is Jim Marcus. I have the magnificent Martins.

We had a we had a little birthday show lace week to try to get knock off some of the COBWEBS, more break. But here we are, back in studio, and being back in studio that means we got behind the glass to producer of the stars. Tk. What up, Taylor? I'm used to be fettered. Given whiskey. What's going on? H Yeah, we had some whiskey last week. We had our boy j five food and Bruze. All right, Taylor, exactly. Yeah, where's it at? Yeah, we now. We're doing the afternoon spot. We can. There's no excuse. Easier trip to Donna's that Dj won't enjoy that. Taylor and I were talking for you guys got here. We still got to make our stock yard TRIPP MMM, and I get some lunch, Yep, and we can hit Donna's out. We can. There's plenty of options. HMM. And, speaking all of all that, you know this is season two, boys. This is how I'm looking at it. We're in season two. Bigger, better, stronger, faster. Yep, all that good stuff, bfst sure bigger than your stronger, tougher, sounds good. So good. Sounds like a sandwich. Since my son's in in studio, I won't say what I used to say, what that stood for. He's got his headphones on, he can't hear your mom's you're Moustdj. So I think this season, season two, we're going to focus on getting more of the I always enjoyed the shows where we had the food guys in here because I'm, like I've said it before, I'm a fat kid at heart and maybe if that kid in person. I like food. I enjoy talking food. So we're going to hook up with chef him a few times this year, if not every week, to go through the devour of competition stuff and find out what our birds are eating. The week before the Wednesday, I think you said it would before they have the game, will be checking in with chef Tim. We're going to see if we can get chef will back in here with stockyard and we're out there for any other food spots up want to talk to us.

And then, of course, teller said, we all love the booze. I see my boy j file, you just he just jumped off face. So Jameson here. We're definitely we're working on some things. We had the nice little outing last week at telly's pub and we're talking about maybe doing some pub crawls, little little sand a pub crawl we'll gonn will get some spots in the area and see if we can come hang out for a couple hours, chat with the fans, talk some sport. It's in the and Santa Booze First, look a look at this guy. He's not just a pretty face. Santa Booze first. That's fantastic. A lawyer's mine too. All right. So here we are. We're back in studio. We've been out since was our on the show, maybe late, may think it was. So a little bits going on this week. Was a little busy. Not Quite two months. A lot of topics out there. Huh. So this is what I'm thinking. We're just going to do topic roulette. Sure, all right, I got the topics with numbers. Teler is going to produce a show today. Collars, going to give you a number and we're just gonn jump into that topic. We'll go fifteen minutes per topic. See what we got. Some of them are relevant to sports, some of them are just bullshit. Some of them we might say, why do we want to talk about this? But whatever we don't get to this week we'll get to down the road. And I as as training camp comes around, obviously had training camp starts up next next week's like twenty five. Soon starting off its season, starts getting closer and closer. We're going to be on our every other week schedule for now, but then start in late August will be in here crushing it every week doing the game analysis, pregame and talking all things eagles and other things. But we'll really start focusing more on the birds and then the season ahead. We'll do some looking at some of the teams. May break down the giants, Redskins, cowboys. We backed out of them. We'll have our show where we do the predictions. There's which is always a fun show. National People Making some stupid comments on it. Yes, I see, I I can tell deek's already got something on his mind, something he's got to get off his chest. All right, well, we can. We can take care of it now, later, whatever. Let's get into it. To the roulette here. Look top of Roulette. I tell Spen, spend that roulette. God Ass, give me number one, two, seven, seven seven Gus right there. All right. So topic number seven giants, the giants offseason, and I could kind of rapid what what ex coach Ben Macado said this week. So Bet maculd do this week he was interviewed. I forget it was us to USA Today or it was some radio station. Right. Was it in on radio stays are the radio section? It wasn't print. I thought it was in New York radio station. Okay. Anyway, he comes out and you know he's he's a little. He's a little but hurt right, you can really fired them? Yep, midseason. Yep. And I read that the giants have not fired a coach midseason and the forty one year in the last forty where really they haven't fired coachman season. So that shows that the giants had enough of them as well. When he comes out, is trying to guess who that was, Pee Carol? Forty one and forty one season. They haven't done it since yere and forty. I've seen that. Wold, one thousand nine hundred and seventy seven. You Carol, wasn't. Definitely not go now. He wasn't the coach then. He was in the early s though, mid s. One thousand nine hundred and seventy seven. Yeah, I don't know who to I know. You know what. No, Joe the miracle the metal lands was ended a season whatnot in the middle of the SASON. But did he get fired after that? I don't know if that was the last game of the season or not, but I know it was at the end of the season. HMM, I can't remember if the coach got fired for that or not. I know Pischarsik ended up as an eagle not long after that. Yeah, it'll joe so been saying. You know, now this team is making the moves that I would have made. You, of course they are. It's easy for you to say that now. It's easy to be, you know, Monday morning quarterback and say what you would have done. He's also I think he's just being a lazy like a lazy analyst. He throws out there. Well, the Eagles, yeah, now the success might get...

...to their head. They may not be able to handle it. That to everyone watch. Yeah, the cowboys. Well, you know, Seawan Lee's heard all the time and their defensive line is good, but they need to stay out of trouble again. That's you can hear that coming out of this room. I think we'd put a little more thought in or. Yeah, and then with the Redskins, he just said Washington is Washington right. Yeah, brilliant. Been Brilliant'm sure that's what they came to you. And he's getting paid to say these things. He's getting paid to sit on his cats this year. I the giant sheel paying him. Yeah, well, is it? Did he get paid? First his observations? I was that just falling. All right, I don't know. Maybe maybe you got a gift card to Wendy's or something. Yeah, I give him some more mustache and grease to you look so goofy with that mustache. I was really upset when he shaved it. What makes him? What was goof you're the mustache or the super slicked back hair? He was just on this. Yeah, he's just kind of creepy looking to think he was almost our coach. Yeah, yeah, Right, Oh my God. And he got how many interviews? Was a two interviews with US likes? That's a fruit basket. Who? We sent a fruit basket too for that to thank for that, for giving up the fruit baskets again. So He's out there, you know, like I said, take an easy route and saying well, if I was there, that's what I would have done. And now this teams can be better. So He's picking them to win the division this year. He thinks they're gonna be that much better. MMM, I don't know. So let's see what they did this offseason so far. I think, and I say this many times in the show, my pain state's going to be showing. I think they're going to be better because it's a quand say Quan there makes them a better team. I don't think it makes them a better good enough to be the division winners. It make you a halfass drawings fan this year. It No, now, how I can't. It will not. It will not. It's I put the Jersey away. CHECK IN THE JERSEY. Whack Pain State Jersey. Let me clarified. I didn't buy a say Kuan Giants Jersey. It's a pen State Jersey. It's going away and okay, good. I will say this, though, if I got a chance to take it on my famous he team, I will. All oil teas are off when it comes to fail you have. Yeah, yeah, that's about making money. I agree with that, all right. You know, Fantasy Leagues, I've been in you there. I had to pay more for ANFC East division rival player, or you just didn't pick them period. Really. Yes, yeah, I had that. That was a personal rule of mine. For for ten plus years I refused to pick an NFC. He's player and that's why you suck it. Correct. But my my integrity was intact. I was like that in the beginning. You know, yeah, I'm not taken up emmitt Smith. There's no way he's going to be on my team, taking my team. And then I realize if I wanted thirty times, then I you might want it to get it's been. Yeah, yeah, I eventually sold the air my ways. So they the giants this offseason. They had a decent, decent draft. They got Berkeley, they got another offensive lineman. That was one of their weak points last year. Hm. So I think they also signed nate soldier free agent, brought him into the left tackle who again been macadoo is. He's not that great of a player. He was the best left tackle available and free agency. He played for Belichick. He protected Brady. I'm not going to say nates older the whole famer. He's a lot better than when you have been right and you still have Eric Flower's playing right. You're right tackle. So Barkley, upgrade offensive lines, slade grade, Eli still there exactly. That's the point I was going to make with Eli there another year older, another year less mobile, shall we say? I don't know. Yeah, it's easier to turn around hand the ball off to a a start running back that Prescott proved that, yeah, a couple of years ago. So you know that that's definitely going to help out. Who's The wide receiver? They picked up ladder, cody ladder. Okay, how about in a free agent that they pick up a...

...free agent wide receiver? Or was it just in the draft? I forget it. Anyway. Well, they still got it. They have they still got they'll back on, which, if you're talking about their offseason, right there was the rumors to him get traded. Here's going video and they captured him. He's still there. So I mean it's a it's a slight upgrade that they have. I don't think it's anything to write home about and bottom line, I don't think it's going to make a pilot difference at all as far as were they place in the division. In regards to the eagles, their tea, I know they spent a ton of money a couple years ago on defense and I assume most of those guys are still around because they're not going to eat all those contracts, except JPP. Yeah, he is a colder still. That cool event. Yes, so, with hey being gone, the guy, he spent the big money on Vernon a couple of years ago, that all the pressures on him. Yeah, but I mean since he blew his hand up, has he been that effective? I mean he's been a decent player, but he hasn't he wasn't what he was prior to blow on his hand up. Maybe not. So teams on that line. You look at them, m yeah, and I don't know who they are other than Olivia. Vernon. Yeah, yeah, the changes they've made, peep, the players they've brought in. I don't think it's going to move them up in the east the ladder at all. What did they finish? was they finished the third less year or so list. Was it last? Yeah, they were three and thirteen. Right, yeah, Oh God, remember fright, yes, you're Domaso his yeah, yeah, oh, he's almost right. Yes, yes, that's why they got the second overall pick. Right, right, yeah, my bad. I think that their offense is better, but their defense is still the same. I mean they added one stud say Juan, and I mean I don't know. One Guy Wins you to division because you still have Eli throwne passes, who who looked really bad last year, and offensive line could still be a mess. But I don't see them when in the division. I think they're better than three and thirteen. It's not hard to get better than that. But I don't think they're going to win a division at all. And now with the defense side to like you said, losing JPP hurts and they only have verning. But how about all that steff going on with you, Norris Jenkins? Yeah, yeah, and who knows what's going to happen with him too, if they caught him with all this drama that he's got going on. And because that he's a good player. He's a very good state. I think he's a safety right. Yeah, he's a good safety for them, and who knows what is going on with him. So that's more drama for them. They signed another safety offseason, Michael Thomas, but he is he was more of a special team Er guy and I it's kind of a he's not going to replace Jackie. Yeah, a great changes that whole story. With Jenkins still is little weird bodies family this property. He's not even there. Yeah, and it's one of his good friends, or at least he says. Yeah, so that's that is just they, I think, repeating. They found out that his brother did it, right, wasn't? I think that's what it's pointing to. allegedly. Let's make sure. Let's make sure we put that work there. Alleged, please say alleged. Another topic that we might get into here that we'll have to use that word a lot. Right. Yeah, allegedly is I think they said his brother did it. So who knows if he was involved at all or knew about it, but that's more drama they have to deal with. Got We love that drama absolutely. Long as it's not here, exactly, long as it's not here, keep it north on the turnpoike. All right. So I think now I got it. I got the signal. I'm going to go to the next topic without topic, Roulette, because Monday night we got our boyes from two hundred and five live. Yeah, all of our listeners out there, if you're not following one of the other great shows here a while fire radio, two hundred and five live, one of the guys we started off with. They're doing a best front man bracket. I've been followed it along Dag, I know you've been followed along time, Amodi. MMM, so I was listening to the Monday night and I don't have a bone to pick with these guys. I just want to I just wanted to talk about it a little bit. So right now we have on the line our very own John Creten from two...

...hundred and five line. John, you're there? Yeah, I'm here. I'm not sure if I want to do that. I'll quit your belly aching. So we're following close sleeping out of it. Fine, until I heard that voice that just said something. I don't know if I call your show and talk when he's in there in a week. You want me shut them down for the segment job we're mayst out to turn his Michael. Yeah, these are a bar close by. I could go grab a couple quick beers and I'll come back. What's going on, boys? Nothing much. We're back in studio after a little break. Feels good starting off season two here to say in the duode first podcast. So getting back into the swing. Nervous Golls, I thought all of our all of ours, our two one hundred and five sports shows, we're starting to take off and I was getting worried. He it's is hard worked out. It took a lot out of us. We needed a break. I hear you tail. No big deal. So we're backing. What's up with this Burne? You want to pick with me? What's going on you? You were pretty adamant about this. I was to hear what you have to say. Here's my concern, and I know we're in relative, relatively the same age. Brackett relill bring deec into this will yeah, it's relative until he comes into so you guys were really focused on on the alternative side of the bracket, that the grunge and all these other words you guys are throwing out. And okay, so front man and again, I know when you start this up it's tough to put all the qualifiers in here. And who's a front man? I Know Paul McCartney's one of the guys on here. That's why it's that's why it's front man and Solo. That's why I change it to the people with it's both. Okay, so that's when your pot point all right, yeah, here's here's my bone. I'm a huge Pearl Jam fit, huge probably fit. Also huge foo fighters fan. What to see them last week. You guys think Eddie's going to run away with this. I think you're misguided, that it's all here's my thing. I'll tell you exactly. So that part of the bracket was the hardest for me. Now let me let me qualify this by saying what we did was we threw about ninety names, ninety to one hundred names, in a mix and we had people on twitter vote form. I reached out to some some pretty cool twitter pages to get to get their feel so whatever broke it down, and I have my cousin who's interacting. kind of helped me with the seeding. He pretty much took charge with the citing. So we put it all together and we put the alternative together. They'll turn the side. Was the hardest part because a lot of people hold those guys here and there, like you just said, to give me with the Pearl Jam. There's a lot of Kurt cobing people out there, there's a lot of Chris Cornel people out there, and when you're a Kurt cobing guy, your everybody else sucks and cobing as God. Yeah, so we knew it was going to create the most buzz on that time I honestly the reason that we said, and when you listen to us on Monday, Jim, the reason that I said Eddie was because of what's still left because, disappointingly, if that's a word, Chris Cornell went down to Kurt Cobaine. I agree with Hill. He's the one would be the one person that would sallenge Eddie for that side of the bracket. The fans spoke, you know, five hundred some votes later and Cobane wins that. So I think if you go and Taylor, remember we talked about it on Monday. I think if you go just here, you know talent Eddie, Eddie runs away with that bracket. But if you go with like people holding him and godlike status, than cobane probably going to come out of that bracket or something. How you look at it, they have the better records. But if you think put see that's it. We didn't readn't get to talk about it a lot on Monday about what everybody saw it, but you do. Okay. So do you hold it against coping because he died? You don't mean like obviously...

...pearls him has the better I think has the better records. I think you do they have? The better, you know, longevity. Obviously he goes. You know, he's even blow his brains out, he's still singing. So it's just the way you got to look at it, Dude. I don't know. What do you guys think? So I got into round that time. I was more of a hip hop guy growing up, right, and then Pearl Jam, cobane. I was Never Nirvana Fan. I'd leave off. I Love The foo fighters and nave girl. I was never really your Nirvana Fan. I like some of their songs, but you won't find a full nirvana album on my mom my phone on my music catalog. Every Pearl Jam Album, every foo fighters album, every sound guard now right, that's like those bands. And he throw Stone Temple pilots in there. They're all kind of in the same era and style of music. I agree with you. I think Cornell should have gone over Cooban. But if you're talking front man and showmanship, you need to see food fighters live. I've seen Pearl Jam live almost every time they've come here and it's a great show. But Eddie, as he's getting older here, he doesn't really get into it as much. Doesn't put on a lot of show and I'll be honest, a lot of the political stuff he does. It turns me off. I'm paying to listen to you, seeing I got this is your platform and your time to talk, but I'd rather not do that. Where the FOO fighters and GROL? Well, that's what went into it. That's what went into it. If you look at the top for the top four seeds, Jim is is, you know, Eddie, Dave, Chris, Cornell and Scott Land. That would have forty. You just said yeah, and Coobin went to six because I gave him enough respect to know that he was, you know, transcending all that other stuff that people want to tell you. But he wasn't top five, and that in that side. When you look at our criteria, our criteria when we started it was showman Shit. Obviously writing, you know, songwriting, and voice. If you look at guys from that error, that grunge rock error, none of them were good showmanship at that point. Like a bolt was still a game, still a drummer for them. If you look at you, if you look at lead men, none of them they all sat on the stool and some they didn't. You know, Eddie was. Eddie was had about a five or six year run where it was called climbing. Climbing staff are like that, but you know they're none of those guys were really like all time front then. So then you got to go to voice and Song Ready. Voice. Obviously Cornell is probably the best as far as range, as far as melodic and stuff like that, and Eddie has the better song ready he I mean. But people were voting the way they feel like they want to vote and you know, the battles. ME. I was yeah, I'm I'm calling the upset. That girls going to take that bracket, that side of the bracket. That's where I think it's. God it is too, I think. I just look at you know, what it looks like to for me, if I had to choose one band from that error for me was stone tevil pilates. But if you look at what's left, I just thought Eddie is so beloved and I know Dave is too, and you know Dave's been around. They all, you know, twenty years of elite sing or whatever it's been. I just feel like the Pearl Jam fans are fanatics and like that's you know, I know who's got there their boot. Pearl Jam fans are like fanatics and when it comes down the win it's the same, same reason. Why Bruce Springston Steven Tyler right now? Yeah, because Bruce fans are fanatics, and that's actually where more what it is when. But that's where I wanted to go next with springsteam. I got a question for you, John. Sure we move on to that. To borrow phrase from radio shows, are you reserving to the right for any executive challenges that you may entirely disagree with and find completely undeniably wrong? There's a democracy, I mean it's not really now. What I did? I use I use my executive decisions when the seating was going in, hmm, because I wanted to try to keep it as same as possible, because if you, if you break down everybody who...

...was in this tournament, and thank you, go by our criteria, you would think that Freddie Mercury is a walk for the final. But if you any should be voting, he should go right. But if you look at the way everybody's been voting, I said it and tailor tell you I said it on Monday, it's not necessarily going to pay out the way you think it should. So for me, like because I'm because I'm a Freddie guy and that's my favorite band of all time, my favorite singer. Like, I don't want to put my two cents in because my executive decision like coming to play next week when Freddie and the Jagger play each other go against each other. HMM. So I would just really know what I'm going to let the fans are at it and, you know, see who comes out of it. Now I just used all my executive decisions when it came to CD Okay and weaving some people off that were, in my view personally, somebody that I get want on the bracket. I'm staying when it comes to the voting. Yeah, this is just an observation of mind that I've had throughout the course at this poll that you've been doing. I think the overwhelming majority of voters are probably under the age of forty on what I guess, or at least forty five. Therefore, the newer bands, the newer solo artists are probably going to bump off a few older generation guys that probably should make it through. That's just an option. It's an observation I've had. I would agree with that. But then, like in the beginning, I thought the same thing, but I saw the older and more legendary guys were the ones that were that were getting the winds and they were getting in. They were getting them in like landside fashion, you know, mean and nail. What are they to the matchups? Are Guys that have been around for, you know, Twenty Five, thirty years? You look at if you look at the remaining people on the bracket, you know, with the exception of the alternative side, which you know obviously had, he's been around for what, you know, thirty years, where twenty five years, whatever it's been. Most of the guys that are left on the metal side and the hard rock blaser side, you guys have been around thirty four a year or who have been dead for four years. There's not there's nobody left that you can consider twenty years or newer. That would really make a huge impact. Okay, anything. What one other question I got for you is there is there somewhere like where we could go and see the entire tournament in front and not just what you're throwing out there on social media each day? You know what I'm saying, in the entire bracket, the entire brackets is there's some place where we can go and see that. Yeah, I'll share it with you guys, soon as I get all the phone I got. I have a saves on my phone and on twitter, I can. I'll send it out. Taste good, because I've been curious about that, because I should have. I should have put, you know, the percentages of the winds as we went along. But there really was, honestly like the first two rounds were just landslides. I mean they there was really no no like everybody's been pretty much talk except for one like Tom Petty. Knocked off Joplin, who was a higher seed, and he just beat Elton John, who was a higher seat. So looks it looks like as and he fell into a twenty two seed which, when we look back, you know the top twenty were legit. So I don't think he was wrongly seated, but I think is anybody makes a run from the lower seat, it looks like it made him and I got a theory about that getting so I we have the younger demographic in the room with this here, Dj and to your point, with somebody's classic guys. Dj, if somebody says to you, do you want Tom Petty? Where do you want get US Joplin. Are you familiar? Petty was pretty much touring up until he died and he, I think, was...

...a great tour around of all ages. It's it was about age show. So I would think that's where people that you know, maybe Deacon, I don't know, on the older eight, on the older Ed in the spectrum saying yeah, well, Jannis had a classic voice. Yeah, petty, yeah, at Petty's a great showman. Yes, so Dj from your perspective, like some of these guys that you don't know, do you vote or do you just feel like, I don't even know these people. Might I know a lot of these people. I've heard some of them, but like Tom Petty beating out on John is a little surprising to me. Okay, I feel like that's kind of a sympathy vote for what's happened to him last year, where he died, in a way. Yeah, men, if you look at it too, with these like the younger generation, to be honest with you, isn't like the younger generation that may not know some of the older ones, an overwhelming vote to where I think it would sway either way. I think what it is is, if you look at the criteria you just made Jimmy if you say you know he was torn up until he died, you know, a year ago. That's where your bruce is come in. That's where your Mick jaggers come in, that's where you're atty vetters come in. Where Dave girls like their two guys, like their party shows. Now, like when sue fighters come to town, like everybody, the mother wants to go see. So whether they think grows a great front name with a great voice and songwriting, or they just like he's it's a party. I love going to through for her show. Yeah, got a will get it that way too, like who's like Freddy's been dead for forty years, but does that remove Freddy from being the greatest front man ever? You people like all right, most people voting probably never even heard Freddie Mercury. Unless there's a song that comes on the radio. They're they're for a in the queen is bring the raps city when it comes on the ratio. Okay, you mean, but you know, if they watch one's world exactly even ways, well, that out days, right, but we let and you and we laugh about it, but it's true. So if you look at it, like, what's your hand can dead for forty years, hearing me now, almost for like those guys are, you know what I mean. But like you. That's why I'm saying, like you, those guys have been gone for so long, but that doesn't, that shouldn't, disqualify them from being considered something. Not at it from DJ's point of view. Yeah, you know, somebody like Joplin, who's been dead for price, however long she's been gone, plays the fifty matchup of her and Patty and go patty. I knew last year was torn and I want to see you when he's great. Yeah, is he better than the Janis Alplan? Is He better than they? Don't I'm John. Some torn and just retired this year. HMM, so like. Is He better? Like? It's a weird it's fun to see six, seven, eight hundred votes coming in for each one of these matchups and then try to wrap your head around why people voted the way they did. John, I just have one question. WHO PUT BILLY JOELS at five seed? Well, that's who deserves more respect. One man really see that I love Billy Joel? Look it, I love Billy Joel. Look, hold on. So this, this has come up right. So this, the seating, has been one of the most talked about, you know, complaint for it, have you on the tournament? And if you look at it right, so we did alternative, we did metal and our thing was we were going to do a hard rock, classic rock and like a hair band. But to us there wasn't enough hair bands to cover sixteen seas. And then if there was actual his reign right through it anyway. No, really would have made no difference, you know, because he would have been a one scene and he would have just probably walked right to the finals. So we're like, all right, let's do this, we'll do classic, will do hard rock, and any head and any hair band guys come in will blump them all together. If you look at the top four seeds in that bracket, you had Freddy Number One, Mick Jagger number two, Outon John Number three and Robert plaint number four. So for billy to be five or sixty whatever he was, can't really argue the top for to be ahead of him. So that's where that comes in at when...

...you have thirty two seeds and one bracket somebody's going to be a little bit lower. That's why a petty went twenty two. That's why Steve Perry was twenty four. You know, I mean like when you when you do it that way, that's you can't really argue the top four or flies. I know you can't break it down the way I just said, not to jump all over Dj Day, but but I'm going to what I'm going to the way John just explained it is exactly the way you got to look at it. You can't when you consider WHO's ahead of Billy Joel, you can't argue. I'm see that he's he's saying that I should be a one seed, but I think a five's a little too hot, little too now. Not when you have Freddie Mercury, Mick Jagger. If you look at them, John's hard to argue. Yeah, now I've seen I didn't see Freddie Mercury, but I've Seen Elton, I've Seen Mick and I've seen billy and some of the greatest concerts I've seen were given by all three of those guys. But when it comes to entertaining a crown, a crowd, songwriting voice, all the showmanship, everything I mean you got to give it to Freddy and Mick is as a one and a too, because, I mean billy Joel can can sell out as. Here's what's going to upset. Here's what's going to upset Ega. Actually, Billy Joel's actually steene. What that? So if you you guys, before, before before you guys, let me go you want, I can break down the top, say ten for you really quickly, and then you guys can decide if he fell where you think he should be, and then you guys can, you guys can talk about it, but the way, if you look at it, the way that they add real quick. Can you guys go here? Yeah, we got all right. So obviously Freddie won, Jagger to Elton, free, Paul mccartin, he was actually for and Robert plaint was five at your top five. Yeah, and you get number six. Was Bruce Springstein, because we, you know, we we figured with his longevity and the crazy sands, he probably sits in number six. Jim Morrison number seven, final number eight, John Lennon number nine and Jimmy Andrews number ten. That's not it. That's not an easy list to look at. Now, all right, we surprise that's a that's a legit top ten. Yeah, but there's going to be the people at sea like did number twelve for the number thirteen, to say all this guy should have been up there and bumped that I out in theres. When you're talking, and and I'm not necessarily arguing, I'm just wondering, questioning. When you look at John Lennon as at nine, I mean he was a he was a co front man with the Beatles along with Paul McCarty, and then he had a really successful solo career and he's an absolute legendary, iconic person in the music world, music business, and when you put him at number nine, it's you got a wonder like can he be higher than a nine? And I and I think that knew. Maybe he could be higher than a nine. I mean then or enterchange vice. I would say that. Yeah, I would say obviously. Obviously, Freddy and they are top too. Yeah, I can't argue that. Three through ten are interchangeable. Yeah, have Morrison at seven and Hendricks of ten or yeah, vice versus. So yeah, interchangeable. You know what I mean? Yeah, Rightbe you know, the Beatles Music is still relevant today and it's also still very influential today, to summit today's musicians. You know, that's exactly calls it. John Lennon, a Paul McCartney. All right, yeah, well, I think, like I said, I think just the seeding was it could be interchangeable. You know, it's arguable most of the buzz that comes through the tournament is because of food and but I think it's good. I think you got it. It's getting exactly the the buzz that I...

...was hoping and, you know, the interaction that I was hoping, because people do hold there, you know, their guy through their heart. You know, that's what I've been saying from the beginning. Makes it fun. So we're this. Tomorrow will be the last matchup for spot in the sweet sixteen and then starting Monday will be rolling through the top sixteen and by Monday to twenty three on our show will announce one. So it should be fun. All right. Well, I'm going on a record now. I think it's going to be growl and Freddy in the finals and I think I think Bruce is going to get upset. Peak. What do you what do you have? The grow in front of the Jimmy has growing Freddy where I gotta go with Freddy and I don't know. On the other sides. I'm I'm sure the on that side you got Eddie vetter, on that side, you got axel, on that side and you got Dave Grohl. I think that'll probably be the final score on that side. Yeah, yeah, I can agree with that. so you see like a Freddie and howsy hmm going up against each other. Or Yeah, and then I guess, I guess. I guess DJ will pick what Dj Kald and John, I know music better than your's. All right, Kendricks Lamar is good. If he's taking one of the littles, the little bit hot easier, the little lousy vert, turning a little buried on the phone, to get them into our next episode of are Bud I'd like it's awesome. Well, we I heard you guys are going to do a hip hop and wrap on, so I'll be looking forward to that. But I want to see how this one finish has out. I know you guys springsteen just beating a local quote guy and he's got a great catalog. I just don't think he makes it and I'm stick with my man Dave's bad on the tyler right now. So we'll see how that how that shakes it up by tomorrow. So all right, you can listen to John, Frankie, Lindsay, Frankie Jr Brandon all Monday nights here while fire sports two and five live, and think us you want to put out there, Jeff, all right, it tells me. I appreciate you getting me a little shadow more people to download and listen and obviously listen to all of our one off shows a while star sports and all the shows that were with us from the beginning, from two five sports, including sand of BOOT first of course. All right, thank you. Right, take care. See John. Thanks. Boys. Say, all right, all right, hower, we're back to topic roulette. Give me number we actually so we number five. The music was number five. So we're down five, six and seven are gone. Give me number one, two, four for for Madden rankings. Oh, there we go the he was mad at your homework, like I told you to. Of course I did. So I haven't played madden in years. I try to get into it, brote, he he gets into it, but I I feel like every time we talk about this stuff I seem like an old man, but I can't, I can't get the paddles down just didn't sound like an old I know, hell, I know, I like to watch it, but I just I lost any type of hand control these new remotes, these new man fangled too many bodies and he's it's a controller, I know, but I don't like the to just called it a remote. Well, bad my day we called it a Jewey store of paddle or paddle. Now I don't think we even called it. It was a joy stick. Are we call him the Paddle Horn? Ittari? Yeah, you, Tari, was the jey stick right, all right, so let's go what we I saw some of the stuff around the rankings. My favorite piece was the Nick foles thing. I don't know if you're going to touch on that chat. Only steal your thunder. No, go ahead, give us. Give us the man ranks and where we're some of our favorite eagles land in the madden rankings and what that mean. Means educate us a little beer. Well, at first with the folds rating, I thought it was funny that Tom Brady had a better catch rating. Yeah, then Nick Foles, I thought that was kind of com we got a chuckle out it at yeah, but I don't know if you saw on twitter the eagles actually tweeted at Madden to change it and Madden did change. They updated. Very cool. Yeah, so that's good. But yeah, the...

...fact that Carson Wentz isn't a ninety were better, is a little surprising. I mean I think he's eighty six or an eighty five. And then who's the highest quarterback? Brady? Ninety nine, wow, I mean ninety nine girls. Still, I guess. I mean I assume a hundred is the highest you can get. Seven nine years age. Wait, ninety nine is the highest you can get? Yeah, you can't get nobody can be perfect. Come on, who said hundred ten percent? I don't care how many times you tell your kids give on her ten percent. It's not possible. Who came in second in the quarterback ranking that you got? Me? I would have to guess Aaron Rodgers. Sorry, Roger Russell, well, I made rodgers is a ninety nine two. What I think? Yeah, all right, Highest Eagle, the high seagulls, Malcolm Jenkins, ninety four. Really, I think that's a respectable ray. I'm certain. I'm not arguing that. I just I can't believe that Carson Wentzu one only an eighty six a second month. It's a joke. The second high some eagles might surprise you. Brandon Brooks, I was going slay for let your Kindi through was gonna go Cox. Still he's a ninety three too, but I think what they do by here is like they have a better strength rating and stuff for Brandon Brookes. HMM, okay, like accelerations. Actually, as he well, I guess he is, that he's the highest offensive lineman. Yeah, HMM. Yeah, I thought it would be overall Johnson highs, not madden, just on the eagles. Okay, yeah, and then Brandon Graham's also ninety three, Kelsey ninety two, or it's ninety one, Johnson Ninety one, Peters Ninety one, jeoffrey ninety yeah, whence is eighty six. That's that's a joke. He's a second best sell the NFL and my plan. They might opinion. I think you know and I don't. I wear supported to you see that ranking your head out. What that FIL network tracking? He was number three. Yeah, yeah, Antonio Brown was number one, braded number two overall in the NFL. Yeah, that just quarterbacks. Now. I mean I said this bad halfway through the season. Every Week Carson Wentz does at least one thing to make you say wow, yeah, that was unbelievable. Every week, not once a month, not once a half a season, every week he does at least one thing that makes you go wow, that was fantastic. And we and how could he be anything less than than it? Ninety three, four five, we talked about him in almost like a robot to yeah, he makes a mistake, he learns from it, crosses it, doesn't it what again, doesn't throw any game. And and the top ten plays for for his season last year. The number one that they said was the it was in a loss to Seattle when he scrambled and along the sideline all he was being tackled and he threw the ball fifty yards downfield on a on a dime, to whoever called the ball. WAS IT Aguilar? And that was his number one play. That's a fantastic play. I'm not arguing, but to me his best play last year it was when he was sacked, not sacked against the redskins. Yeah, that was just we saw that live and it was like Davy just got set. Oh wait, he's still up right. Game to it of your how did how did he do that at that just blew me away. When he did that and to see that live was just just mindboggling. To Watch that and you know, unfortunately, I mean maybe not on foot, but it was only the other end of the field for me, I forget where. You said. Yeah, where the endzodes. It was going in opposite way. Yeah, it was. That was nice. I'm air seem a see the whole plate developed bright and for any came at us when it when it happened, and we were just, Oh my God, how did he just do that? And then you heard, you know, of course we don't hear the Merrill Call at the stadium, but then you hear the Merril call and my quick and it's just to hear that that call is just they was so...

...fantastic and mind boggling all at the same time. And that, to me was his number one play of the year. And how they give them an eighty six is just a total lack of disrespect. So can we come and have that racious which, by the process, I don't know. I guess you tweet at Madden and do Eagles did? Yeah, yeah, you know, show some highlights. Yeah, this isn't an eighty six. Maybe we can get our old friend Colin cowherd to yeah, you want to get speak up for for Carl Lights? I don't. I'm not even going to bring up what he said this week about the billy. She's Christ. What now? Well, he was just talking about Lebron Goo in La and how billy said that he's strong. Lebron strongly considered Philly and kind of just trashed it. That's that's beside the point. Whatever. Yeah, that's nice. Not How hurt. That's another totally give another story. Actually have a play on the eagles. Who Do you think it's a better linebacker? Hicks or Bradham? It maddened or personally over in overall player, Hicks, but in cases better, but he can't stay healthy. Yeah, I think on what Your Dad Right, I think that Hicks is he has the potential to be the better, but you can't stay healthful. Bradam's actually eighty five and madden and Hicks is only eighty one, and it's got to be due to health. Yeah, yeah, that's probably what it is. Jake elliotts an eighty one, one of the best kickers in it. See, yeah, I think do you have it deep you play it. Madden? Yeah, I put yeah, of course I buy every year. Yeah, I love it. Yeah, I used to be mean. Anyway, it's literally the same game every year. But he just like playing because, you know, the players moved different teams and stuff. You know what I would love for you to do, DJ, is to go back to like one of a first year's that it was put out. It seem you could play that version of the game. Graphic graphics are probably Second Genesis. Yeah, NHL, Ninety Five, little Wayne's head bleed. What a year are we on? This got to be twenty something, right. It probably started ninety four and ninety three. Just had the twenty five anniversary not that long ago. Okay, so the game is older than you are. Oh yeah, wow, yeah, yeah, I was played in Nice School. Yeah, so, yeah, I would love to see you go back to like the first, first or second version of that game and see if you could figure out how to play it. I remember the old NC double a EA sports, and yet Ricky Williams just hit on the ball. I was like Bo Jackson from technobil. He'd hand on the ball and he would just go. Nobody could pull and tell. No, call the best the Best Madam Player, I've ever used with Mike Vic guys on the Falcons are. I felt jakes Vic Falcon like like Oh, five hundred and six. Yeah, it was insane. How good he wasn't madden? I don't know. Jason, Jason Fogg just said that you need to play Techno Super Bowl Nintendo. Dj. Sure, if you're going to buy it. I'm sorry, I have I got the red. You gotta remade the tendo sixty five to sixty four regular Nintendo. It's got like Mario brothers and we and I play Technobil with Brodie and he's just like. I know, as I know, Taylor and DJ don't recall, but do you recall electronic football? Oh, yeah, the more stuff the yeah, you stuffing the little cotton ball underneath the guy's arm and hit the flip. It's flip the switch and watch them all bounce around on them at lasted ten minutes and then you were done. Yeah, it took you more time to set it up and gain that that. This is not fun. I'm done. Yeah, it's so raised stork. Thanks, Taylor, Oh my God, yeah, but that we had fun. That was part of the your Lord. The game a little bit was setting it up to see if you could. You would watch the other guy set up and and you would try and set up counter teth right, you were trying counter what he was setting up, and a you know, you once you it was like chess. Once you took your hand off the player, that was it. You couldn't move them again, that sort of thing. And then you would flip the switch and let it roll. We would all go sideway. Yes, silence today would turn around and go backwards or something stupid like that. And it was and then you were like damn that, we got it, you know, okay, we got nothing. They have for toast it work where you would argue, you know, was was the defender touching the guy...

...with the ball or not? I mean, if that was all that was all pretty funny, the way the different arguments and different things that we would get into over that game. And Yeah, we never really played Poti you never more I've ever seen twenty hands. Yeah, yeah, finish the game, but I mean you, you had other things to go to. There were no other things that built, at least not electronically. We, you know, you just had your pet rock, right, yeah, go play yachts or something. Like that. Shoots and ladders. All Right, rock Oh, it's it. Onto the next topic. Give me a number, our tailor. We got one, two or three? Three, three, all right, and this is a Meadi one. The Eagles ability to repeat as Super Bowl champions. Now know why. How are the right fire? Oh, my dad, how often does this happen? Yeah, we're going to have to pull out that nickname that you don't like if you pats all. How often does this happen? Not Very often now, I could. I can. I have numbers if you want to. Won't get give us. Give us your numbers. So we like to hear. We could just talk out of our ass, like we do most of the time, but if you have summers to back it up, it would be great. Always sat a little expectation so you don't get disappointed. I'm sure there's a good life motto. There's only been, I believe, two teams that have been have repeated. I don't think San Francisco's ever repeat. I think it was Miami, New England. HMM, you sure save frantink? Go back to MAC now. Now they see here on my list steelers back in the day. If you want to get a technical green bay repeated one and two. My, My, Oh, I'm sorry, Pittsburgh, Miami's repeated in seven and eight. Pittsburgh repeated in nine and ten, and then Pittsburgh repeated again in thirteen and four teen. Frisco, yes, you're right, Frisco did repeat in twenty three and twenty four. That was like mid s right, eighty nine and ninety. Okay, so it's been a while and account the cowboys repeated in I'm going to stop with the Roman numbers and go go to the year ninety three and ninety four. And at all, DENVER, I forgot them for I'm sorry, denvery nine eighth and ninety nine, and then the England and Oh, four hundred and five. They're only that's what it is. Are of only been two teams that have won three out of four, and that was New England and Dallas, and it pains me to say both of those names with that, with that credit. So out of fifty two super bowls, it's happened out of fifth less. You Super Bowl dozen times. Yes, yes, you like those numbers. So you're saying there's a chance now. Now I agree with what you're saying. As far as logically Taylor, but I have to throw something out there that I think will help the eagles. We basically are picking up some stud free agents that were already on our team, and Carson Wentz, Jason Peters, Chris Mayra, goes, Darren sprawls and Jordan Hicks. We're picking up those basically. They're three days in there till right, I said in the number one there first round pick, yes, and Sidney Jones, yes, we're basically picking up those stud free agents plus a plus a Stud Drey pick that. Yeah, they played, you know, especially Carson once. He played the majority of the season, but he wasn't there in the most important part of the season. The other guys weren't there. They were no there, no more than half of the year and Darren sprawls went out and what week three, I think it was, and Siddy Jones only appeared in the last week or two and didn't play in the playoffs. So we're getting all those guys back and...

...they have the incentive of great Um, super happy. You guys went out and wanted a ring, but I want to go out and do that myself and I think that, coupled with what Chelsea said about being hungry, still hungry, hungry for more. All that and I think dog is taking the right approach by saying, Hey, the guys are ready to move on from last year. That's old news. They're starting to focus on what's about to happen. We know weekend a week out, every team is going to give us their best shot, and that's absolutely the truth. And he knows he has to focus on what's about to happen. He's been on Super Bowl teams before. He knows about what's about to happen. He was Eric Green Bay, so he knows what's coming down this season and every team is going to be there to give them your best shot. He knows the target that's on his back. So he's going to prep the team, I think, properly, to get them ready week in and week out and make sure they're they're ready. All those things combined, I think they have a hell of a chance to repeat and I think playing in a weaker division is going to help. I think they should at a minimum they finished for and two in the division and I think they sweep the division, maybe five and one. And yes, the conference is a stronger conference that it has been in years passed there's a couple do guys in La Right. Yes, the brand I was just about to mention. The rands are going to be tough the you know, and they're going to be out for a revenge when we we play them again, I think out there, but we'd so. They're going to be looking for a revenge and it might not be sixty forty fans wise at us in our favor. Might be the opposite way. So and you know, Falcons are going to come in here that Thursday night look in the knock US offt speed, the Party pooper's rain in our parade, whatever you want to call it. There you know they're in here with a big chip on their shoulder looking for a reason, revenge. MINNESOTA. We got to play them again. They're going to be doing the same thing. They're going to be looking for a revenge. So we've got a lot of at the target out coming. Yet it's a huge star lays. We had it door. Everybody's gunning for us. I think the team is going to be ready and I think last years, last year, and this year's a whole new bag of tricks that we got to deal with. So if you just want to build it so tell you. You said La. I agreed. Division. I still think we're the tops of the division. Then you look at the NFC, look at the playoff teams last year, saints and teams that didn't make it. But are the saints? Say It's probably going to be a nice last year. I was just going to say say the saints. When in Minnesota drew breeze is probably winning that game against us, I was like the worst matchup. The cove gotten it. Yeah, Super Lucky they got. Let me there. Feel like a lot of people are. I would hate to say it, but I think drew brees went. They can beat US easily. Now. Okay, but you guys are all forgetting, though. We didn't have caution wins right, and we had it. That's true. But he doesn't play defense. The defense was a problem in the Super Bowl. The defense was in a problem. The rest of the wayoffs there was. They're only a problem the super yeah, they shut down, they shut them. Minnesota is Thennesota. I don't know that. Miss Minnesota gets better with cousins. They get the running back cold, they get cooked. So we'll see if he helps them. Manley still have feeling and digs, who are scary. I don't the Falcons. Still really early to beach to finish talking about this yet, but definitely not the fit. I don't. I can see them getting back. Repeating is a whole other home in question now. I'm not ready to put anything on the line with that. People underestimate how like difficult that is. Yeah, so let's really are. That's why it never happy. Let's flip it to the other side and and the Super Bowl loser, the super bowl hangover. Do you think this is a year where the Patriots just fall off and you think they got a shot of getting...

...back? They, I see, so weak. I think they haven a better chance than a lot of teams in that conference to get back that. That conference has three teams, if you ask me. Yeah, the Jags, steelers and patriots, and I think the steelers are on the down slow. Yeah, well, I don't know. I think it's more rathless rocker Roethlisberger and definitely on the on the end bell and that front office, but heads every time they try to talk of Mat track. So who knows? Our defense took a big hit, which you're going down, and they their run defense was badly yeah, look for next scored but for five touches in the playoff game. So, yeah, they don't expect out of them. I think there was a lot of turmoil and strife after that super bowl with with the Patriots last year. They had a lot of on typical drama going on and between them a lot of fun off. That me between Bella, Chick Brady in the front. A lot of it was brady to yes, which is a little surprising. Yeah, and and I doctor friend. Yeah, he's cold leader. I mean it's yeah, right, hit his trainer now. I don't know if that carries over into the season, but it's not good, you know. And you know how happy is Grondkowski? He had he was contemplating, meaning leaving or quitting. He doesn't contemplate anything. Yeah, I got's. There's that could beer. Yeah. Yeah, where's the next part? Women and flying pig set. Dude has the life he does. He that's the American dream, right. It's both. Maybe a couple more brains cells. Yes, I will mean a big meat head. And so as far as them getting back to the Super Bowl, I don't know. They've played a ton of football over the last ten years with all those extra games in the playoffs they've played. Eventually he's got to start taking a toll on Brady's body. I mean the you know, getting knocked around. It's got to take a toll on his body. And how much longer is dolla checked going to say, you know, just suck it up. Yeah, and when's he going to say? You know, it'screw it. I'm talking to yea right off in the sunset. Yep, go coach the cross. Yeah, yeah, start a cut off sweats or clothing. Yeah, all right. I think we got about five minutes left, so there's a couple other topics. or he can just do like rapid fire, rapid rapid fire. All Right, Tl Hall of Fame Snub. She talked about a little bit. I'm a little annoyed. I get it. He's trying to stick it to the NFL, but he stick it to his veins. Yes, you see what the NFL came back and said. Yeah, what we were wondering what they were going to be the ceremony. Yes, so they're they're going to acknowledge him when they announced the class. That's it and that's it. That's it. His knee. He'll be out there the wars. He's doing a speech at his on his Mommam tens travel. They you're going to show it? Durn, no thing at all. Huh. No, those line and tribal cast he's getting no acknowledgement other than his name being mentioned. That belief. That's like the biggest to thing. MMM, to know, it's typical to Yo. Yeah, did he's Eva. He it's a diva position and he was one of the all time diva's at that position. All right, next it's a little deeper with him, but yeah, Goa, yes, it is. Yeah, well, here's a really deep topic, very cavalry. I cannot wait. So I think this is actually maybe in between you guys, and this is like my wheelhouse. So I have MTV, the hills and what was the other one called? I don't feel serious, something like better, it's going to be the Jaca Jay Cutler's wife. That like. Wait, so Jake Cutler's wife has a reality show. Now Nice and tell her I watched it this afternoon. I just a prep. I only read the ringer article about and they pretty much chronlized everything. Jake Cutler didn't that episode and he's such a I love it. It's...

...just a he's a dick bag like he's. He's literally the best he's he's a couple see like the first the first episode, the first sight of him, he comes lugging his big Yettie cord and puts it on the counter. His wife's like, what's that? Elk Meet? What? And so she's run in her own business and she's got girls coming in and out of House that work with her and he's like when these chicks getting here and the girls walk in, and he does he just like hate. First off, he looks like he's constantly hungover. You ever look at his face? She's he looks like he's where. He's just waiting through a bad angle, goons smoking Jack Cutler. Yeah, and he just stares at every one of the girls. Doesn't say hi. And wife asked. She tells him they're coming. Could you try to be civil, somewhat presentable? Yeah, and he's just like we'll see and he just stares at all the one girl. They do like the little side interviews. You know what the people off camera she says. I can't even make eye contact with him. I feel like he's gonna Steal my soul body. He's just a total just doesn't give a shit like, and you heard about it what he was a like from his teammates, like Jay. They would say Jay was aloof. They would all use that Jay was aloof. mean. He just would sit his cool, and it's cool at his locker. Just be like now, yeah, give a shit, get going on on care I love them. Get away from me. I love the fact that it's starting quarterback had that kind of outlook. Yeah, I don't need to talk to anybody dirty. Two jobs and this guy got one of them and she asked, she has him with him, if he's done with football. He says, I think so, probably. I'll know in September. Like somebody gets dured, I'll take another ten million dollar payment. Can you imagine what this guy was like when he was in high school and college, thinking he's the BEMOC and you know I'm all that and a bag of chips. So you know, it's really good about it. They live in Nash Bill. HMM, so maybe we'll run into down there for the trip if they're if he's not playing, maybe we're Amans to help slayer. If you, if you get into contact with j color, I will remote emergency podcast. See Past. We're live at Jake Cutler. That would be fun. Hey, what's going on? Yes, so, not worth about. You would hear him smoking his cigarette. That was it. Maybe we'll get on the call in one week. All right, two more minutes. Chase utley retired. Where is chase rank on your all time phillies list? He's number one for me, personal grew up with him, so that's why I'm getting weird personally. got a range of ages here. Personally, he's my favorite Philly of all time. Of all time, guess? Yeah, over Schmidt. Yes, I grew up with Schmidt. He's the greatest third baseman in the history of the game. Yeah, he's probably not. Probably he's the greatest Philly of all time. But you have to understand he wasn't the most personable schmitty player. Never there. Neither was utly. Yeah, yeah, but he showed a little bit more. He played to the crowd. Yeah, yeah, Schmidt was just I think Schmidt's problem was he was so good and just so cool meeting. I don't have to put out any extra effort to be better than I already am. He made he made the easy play look incredibly easy and he made the hard play look fit, because he was so damn good, you know. Yet he wanted a bunch of gold gloves. He had a couple of home run titles during the course of his career. He had over five hundred home runs total. He was never an average hitter. He could hit doubles. Didn't hit many triples. Obviously he but he never I mean for the longest time, for longest time. He probably was under two hundred and seventy lifetime hit her and when he I remember he signed a contract and he was going to be paid two million dollars a year when he and I forget it what point in his career...

...that was, but we were just so blown away that a baseball player was going to be paid two million dollars a year to play baseball. And we're like, damn, we played at in a freaking school yard from that man. We're on a stone field, dirt field, and now, yeah, I know, and you know what we used to call him. His nickname was the two million dollars strike out. That was that was our nickname for him. So what did you call Howard then? Yeah, ellion dollars. Yeah, he had a thirty million dollars start out, but at least Howard had that one year where he hit for average. You know, I don't call if Schmidt led the League in Urbis, Howard did. He was the rookie of the year. Yeah, Schmid had two three mvps. Howard only had two one. But there's a different smiths of First Bell Hall of Famer hows and not. No, he's not correct. So correct, Hall of fame man. You think chases w whole Famer, as much as I love the guy. Now, now he's borderline. See, I think chase his a Woll of famer. He he had, he had it on much. I think the only one from that team is rolins. Well, chase simmy. Yeah, but chase had a stretch of about five to seven years where he too much, where he that was at the end of the of his career. Look, but he had the prime about five to seven years where he was probably, I want to say he was the best second baseman in the National League and maybe the best second basement overall. If you look at the stats, that kind of shows that he's definitely capable all getting in. He's right. Yeah, he's right there. He's caps certainly getting in, but I don't think he does he's in the conversation. He's knocking on the door. I don't know if that door is going to be answered, though, because he ended his career injured. Well, now I shouldn't say he ended his he ended his philly career. Yeah, injured, and he he was still decent out in la but I don't know if he was the he's still in my hair now. He's not the impact player out there as he called grasp. Did they come right today? He's starting every day or something? I no, no. Yeah, if S, a lot of those nine, two, three guys have a special spot in my heart, the masolutely phillies. Yeah, but I don't know if I put any of them at the top of my list now. I know I like Jimmy. Here's a big Jimmy fans. DIKSTER is the only one probably that you could put it the top. He's a total creepy. You Call Different D I know he's he's such a DP it's ridiculous. But I think back. What's that? Defensive Back? Yes, defen's a back up. All right, we are out of time.
