...good stuff, I'll, take a little shot uphops. There you go, we have a little taste for you. Jason Fogg will have alittle taste at it's pretty smooth mm. Yes, it is all right. So, let's get tolet's get to some football, let's get into it. Yeah, let's get into somefootball, a most unexpected victory, except forthe guy sitting across the table from me. Nobody saw this Commeng, I meanwhen you're a thirteen plus I was it thirteen and thirteen and a half the POUNTHEIR DOG PI. Thirteen that came out of the blue. The bat wasa commendous Ti it's underdog of the week. Also there you go yeah like it. I meat to investigate- and I never didthis week. What was the largest spread that the eagles won against in thehistory of of their franchise, and I never did that and thought of itearlier in the week. I never got around till it. Life gets in the way, and Iforgot all about it- and here I am sitting here in front of the microphoneand it pops into my head again. I mean, of course, theirteens got to be upthere. It's got to be yeah, rarely go for two times down, especially with thebackup quarterback plane yeah. You know I mean he's, not your typical backupquarterback. There aren't many backup quarterbacks that have the Super BowlMVP trophy sitting on theirself, but you know that that's. That was atremendous win. I certainly did not say it my score. Itwas thirty eightnd fourteen, I believe, m years. Brian was thirty fived andthirty one would a victory. All kind of Lo nickered at you, it was Yoadidwe,were wondering how much pop you had on the way in gesting is versions at me.The whole time yeah but hey. I couldn't be more grateful. I even picked againstthem Al my pool because when money is involved, you got Ta, go woth your head,not your heart Yep and I was more than happy to take that loss in my pool. Myweekly pot work, of course, yeah yeah. I mean we listen anybody I kind of follow the rule of I don'tBet A. I don't bet the teams that I follow. So I don't Bet Penn state a D.I don't bet the Ou rule of thumb but sure yeah. I felt confident going intolast week and I don't want to say I'm kind of some kind of you knownotuflamas over here, yeah some kind of savent, where on predicting things, buta lot of the things we talked about Nick Foles, getting into that comfortzone. It happened. You know this team rallied around him, which you know this time of a year. Maybethat was the spark they need the Kickin, the ass they needed to get going. Imean it was pretty amazing to see real, quick deak. I have the answer for you:okay, take a guess which year you think it is, though, and also the rams line last week wasthe second biggest line against the eagles in franchise history. Yes, wow, I'mgoing to say one thusand, nine hundred and fiftycome on. I woant say they were doing it. Then I'm GOINTA say it's readerror likeearly readerror, no, no, okay, one thousand nine hundred and eighty fiveagainst the Redskins reallyoh yeah fourteen point: Five Wow, the La wasthat on the road also t doesn't say right here: butecause. Ilook that up from that was a randal game. It was that the day that hesigned his contract, that's not Randall, one thousand nine hundred and eightyfive sure that would be his rookie year, but I don't think he would have beenplaying just then that was when Jo, they were ushering. Jaws out. I don'tthink random. That's probably still jaws Puy, okay, yeah, H, yeah! That's aallright TAT's, a Redskin team coming off a sup superpollh, yeah, okay, okayyeah! That makes sense wow because of the eighty five that wasn't even buddy atthat was Berno Maryan Campbell. Did he yeah? He did last a coupleseason Sydney he did because Fred, somebody or ather took over for thelast game it when for Meal Dep quit and then hi did Campbell for a few Yean ayeah. Okay, all right, Jimmy Markus, is trying to say that he knew it all along.I laughed at that. Of course he did yeah he's also sitting in front of acomputer instead of sitting here. Trying to talk right makes it a loteasier and what din e call Hem a keyboard warrior here you go, but you were really confident in I meanyou really really were confident in your call and we all did snicker at you.Yes, and I mean I did. I just didn't see this win any I mean we just provedit with the is the second all time greatest tet line against and it'sandon the road. With the backup quarterback I mean throw all thosethings into the mix. You got injury after injury, they're, dropping playerslike flies, yep La's, coming off a bag game against theChicago bears in Chicago. They need to Kape pace with in New Orleans, santshoping it's. You know, snagge that number one seed. They got revenge Yep,you know, you know the revenge. Revenge should have been a Mugfof, a motivationfor them to come out and firing on all...

...cylinders. Where did this wind comefrom? I mean what happened that they were able to, and at one point theywere on the verge of a blowout Yep. They were if, if fols doesn't throw thepick on the two yard line, and we score that touchdown, it's thirtyseventhirteen, yes, was that in the fourth core. I think that was in thefourth quarter, right, yeah, the wasn't really in the fourth courte yeah. Yes,we're on the verge of a blowout erect that one play kind of almost turned theentire game rate did for bit, but I mean he was awaiable to hold on. But me,where did this game come from what happened? Wut? You know what happened.Doug started using his brain again, Doug start using his weapons again andthat ur Po offense you look at it. Look at it, look what they did. They spreadthe ball around. It wasn't Zacherts all day I mean ERTs has been outstandingthis year, but e the earth show is effectively canceled when whence wentright, because it's gotten to a point of the other players. Complaining Imean you had Ashan Jeffrey. I think you had to eat catches. You got mad morethan he usually gets more than usually CATT. She had golden tate involved. Youhad small wood with multiple touches. You had atoms with multiple toshing.You brought sprolls into the game. I mean you really started using yourweapons again and that I think that was really the Kiy. I agree. I think thatwas the key, also getting the ball in different people's hands into yourplaymakers hands. They have a load of playmakers on this team yeah up anddown the line at all the skill possession positions they haveplaymakers Yep. And yes, I agree with you a hundred percent. They got theball and they spreaded around. They had a couple nice drives, who areable to keep the defense off the field, which means you're, keeping that highpoting offense off the field from the rains yep and at some point during the game, theannouncers made it a point to take note of the blocking of Dallasgother and what a difference he was making, especially down the goallineopening up different holes for the dout of running backs to get through ownscore, and if he brings, if he's bringing thatelement to his game, you know Zackarts never did that he ney he never. You know he and he had one of the best blockingtight ends as a mentor in Brent sellick. I don't know if that's a skill that youcan pick up as a pro I don't know, but you would think you would want to be more than a one doknown as a more than one dimensional type of tight end skill player. It'sgreat, don't get me wrong, it's great that he can get down field and makecatches. You know he's excellent at that.There's no doubt about it. He's wanted a best in the game at doing that, butit's nice to be able to pick up that block once in a while too, and it lookslike God, it is going to be he's going to have that combination, skill setwhere he's able to block, get guys open in the backfield and also get downfield and make catches. I mean that touchdown against the cowboys was atremendous catch and run he did it over to middle in traffic. Hegot blasted a couple times and he was Ling and they bound they literallybounced off of him and he ran into the ends on an he got caught down at thegoal line, but he was still able to get in. I don't know if Zack Erts is able tomake that catch after the run. You don't see him making that break fromcontact, and you know we've spoken about it numerous times on the show:Acertsright HEAC yackirts Ar African, yes and the lacking theyre up an whatyou bring up a good point with Godard the blocking he's kind of got the wholepack and she's got the size yep. You know maybe Heis a big boy but yeah. Ithink he he's bet he's like Ygt Ocosky Yeah he's got fifteen twenty pounds onearth o Na good, solid six, six Huhis, a big man- and you wonder you know Ikind of questiond the pick after a super bowl. You know, did you reallyneed to replenish? You know you're missing Sellik, but at this point Selacould have been replaced with another tight end off the free agent list. Butit looks like you got some guy, that's going to maybe replace Erts. I mean atsome point you're going to have to pay cars ond wence if he stays which wewon't get into that, but maybe we will, but at some point you're gonna have topay Erts and you wonder: Are you going to spend big bucks on a guy like Erts?When you have somebody like got or Sitti I ou SA. You know. Jimmy Grahameventually became dispensable. You know if you're not multidimensionalas aplayer, and you mentioned the blocking aspect who knows yeah, but he looksgood. I mean it's been a a solid pick and I'm glad to see him stepping up atthis point: Yeah, CIP, Jimmy Grim. I think what led to him getting releasedby the saints was his injury. Heinjury started piling up for him andthat's what I think contributed to him being. Let go by Tho Shame. He wasinconsistent for so long yeah, Yeah Yeah. He was, he was a. He was a big play guy. He you know, Ithink thet traded him to Seattle right so hat what it was. A Traderad inSeattle in Seattle, buttom, yeah N he's kind of bounced around, but he was thesame thing not really much of a...

...blocking time right, but I wappen Ohyeah yeah. It's no point. Erts earts finally has started to put togetherwhole seasons where you know the first, what four five years of his career hewas. You know I don't want to saynonexistent, but you know: Where is this guy kind of player? You also ad?The court? First, eight seasons Ouert a Gameyeah you sa the quarterback shufflegoing on yeah, yes, which, which makes it difficult, which makes it difficult.Now you know Carson being his that being his security blanket almost to aridiculous level. I don't know that I love that so maybe a shot of folds inthere makes him kind of have to step up his game. Yeah, Yeah Y, ah yeah, that's a good way! Looking at itthat at an angle I hadn't thotolph. That's that's a good point. I like that. So you know, earths has been become more consistent.Where he's there from wire to wire it first game to the sixteenth game and-and he was you know there through the playoff. So it's he's finally gotten tothe point: where he's a more consistent throughout the season. Tup Of playerhe's no longer that half a season player and what's the en, is seven eightseason, then it I six year I six here. Okay, so he's not he's not on the downhe's in the pime of his coreer, st on the prime yeah he's not on the downside.Yet I'm not ready to get rid of them. You know they're. Actually I actuallyheard some talking the radio this week about because of the Way Dallas got itplays ind. The combination skill set that he brings is is earts going tobecome this dispens despendable, and I think I like keeping on to players thatare that are give you more options. You know the more options that thedefensive coordinator has to worry about it yep. Why not? You know you o get rid of urtsand then you're down to one solid, tight end. You keep birds, your you gotto you know very shoutsidence e Tha, like I said earlier. I think at somepoint you might have to make a decision where he's going to want top dollars,but for the year yeah you roll with Bo sure you do it New England did with youknow, with the murderer and Winnen runnn op there now sure. Hopefully wedon't have anythings like that. Now I don't see that happening here. Younever know. Now I yeah. I agree we played out aslong as it can as long as it lasts. As long as they're, both productive, whynot and- and I think another key to that win last week- was to Play Thodefense- a defense really got after that front, for, I think, was theirbest game. A Muse, Michael Bennett had a monster. O He's he's been so do s, Iwould say: Michael Bennett probably deserved a proball nomination, if notan alternate out yeah right, an he's played a hell of it. Yeah and it's beenquiet. You know people haven't taken notice, but he's had a really goodseason M. Yes, he as and and think people still look at the record and seehim notyea Qike Contriv. Reading to that. But now I'm with you on that noweyeah. He, your right tailor. They look at the record, but it hasn't beenbecause of his play. His plays Oh yeah, I'm saying it's an unfair, thin,absolutely absolutely and he's been a bright spot on a Iwould sa an underpor performing offense or defensive lung. You know Hallodinatafinally showed up last week he knocked down a past Yep. Chris long has been in and out thisyear and obviously journagan being down. It's been, it's been a rough year forthat line, es a strength I mean last year they won the game and the trenchesRMEAN theye on so many games in the trenches offensive, an defensive linethey haven't been able to exert their will like that this year and Fletcherhad a big game and you know Tok Girle had had a decent game. Hedidn't have anything that really I don't know. I didn't catch the early part of thegame. I had a basketball game, so I wasn't able to catch the early part ofthe game. You don't have a DVR now, if I do, I don't know how to work. Youdidn't program, Yourdyou, didn't program, your VCR Didou. Now I did not.You have to have a DVR builtin. Unless Ou have it, I had a dvr but one, but Idon't know how to work it so that I could set it up and record some. Haveyour son help you out there? Okay, that's true. You've got these kids inthe hous yeah. Do these things Er Nfrom? What I recall later in the game.He didn't do a whole lot. I mean he didn't. Have those big big plays thatreally hurt you yep? Well, you look. You look in the fourthquarter. I mean he didn't get out of bounds with eleven S. I mean I'm. No.An Mat right makes aside from his interception, probably the play thegame, Ye keeping ye in back and that's a that's a big mistake on Girli's onGirley's part yeah, Jar Goff. He did not. He did not have agood game. He had pressure on a wall game. I think that was the difference.Yeah P H, he did not have a good game. He's been vp for that team, pretty muchall season, and then I mean he's. We...

...went to shell himself and thenobviously had the knee injury now Qech both for the cardinals game, so yeahand you e. You know what they forced them out of the pocket. They did't. lethim get comfortable yeah and I mean they pressed up as much as they could.You know on woods and they just really minimize their weapons, which I thinkagain all things that were necessary to happen. I mean, I think the cornervontamadics had a great yeah. He really did its really ntept up and he's I mean I don't know, I think what hecome out of college as a corner or safety. I forget kind of N in betweenand there wes so t we get movinto a safety. Yes, because he's playeddifferent positions during the course of the season and he's been able toproduce and contribute it both yeah, you know, he's been a solid player and I don't follow college football wholelot, but I don't remember his name beingtalked about so you know he's he's been a nice surprise. Where was he drafted?Was He trade throthe FIF like a MIDMIDRA, sicton yeah? And if youremember our season preview, I actually pointed out him being a highlight: Didyou I did wow? We need to go back and play some of them. Wow. Now I play.Maybe you are so fun, maybe I am yeah. You only remember once tat you hitthat's exactly right, that's exactly right! That is Gooo, getabout all the bad things. I ad just remember the good things. Yeah all teWor et felt to the crat that airball uthat's good yeah, that's m yeah. SoHe's been a nice nice addition to the team and at a position that we neededhelping because guys have been going down. You know we lost three O of ourstaughters, so anybody can step up and contributehas been a big help and hecertainly considered for that. He has and if you look at who they've lost tomean you know, even Sidney Jones has been a disappointment and he wassupposed to be the value ad this year. Right, like you know he sat out. Theyput him on the shelf last year. Maybe onfair hype, maybe unfair higeck andyeah unfair hype, and they talked about. Maybe he should be. He should have beena first round pick the eagles got lucky. You know how smart is Hawli and theguys, but you know I don't want to give up on him and he's in a second yearhe's been injured, but it's just unfair expectations for somebody that's beenso on and off the field that Yep yeah, they cam really Holl into thosestandards. Yeah, it's tough to hold anybody to standard. So when he can'tstand on the stay on the field e yeah, which is the most important part,exactly yeah, exactly yeah it's, it has been tough for him. Staying O on thefield. He did come in with a lot of hype, part of it and then the whole yeah. Wegot a steal in the second round. We got first frown value in the second round.All that business you got to stay in the field now, n.You know, injuries, aren't Ol D and not there's. Never an injury is the fauldof the player, but as you go through the injury and you start to heal, youknow when you can get. When can you get back on the field? And you know youhear athletes talk all the time. There's a difference between beinginjured and being hurt, so sometimes you know, is the player hurtor is he really injured? Well, you know at yeah and I start to quote: We talkedabout it last week, just kind of the issues with the training staff. I meanhow many acls and how many I mean this. This team has gone through. It's almostremarkable, you wonder, what's going on there and then h the winds back injurynot to bring that in or Belavor the point, but you know they see a lot ofguys going down much more so than any other team. Yes, it's surprising yeah.I think the only team it's been hit as bad. As I mean. If you look what'shappened to Washington, I mean they've been devastated by injriston yeah Di.They have. I was chockoling. While you were talking ouwhat Jimmy put down, hesaid, I'm little disappointed. Abtin come in with the ski mask, ththe. Fourth and John Guys did thatthis week I did. Did they really Gd d? I think NBC sports, one of the otherpeople yeah. Somebody else ran with it put on social media. Pretty wild yeahye H, they only had him on for about a five minutes of the segments got oftOki TOA microphone for an hour with one of thass yeah. That would be a littlewe are in Camdon County. To I mean we don't want. You know people coming inlooking for us ou en you imagine if the vet was still around the seven hundredlevels showing up with ski misks. I wouldn't show up to that. King, Jo!No, I mean listen, I think it's cool, it's the their way of bonding Tige,sure Yeu sure have a little humor with it. I know people are getting upsetwith it think it's pretty awesome, yeah yeah it's their way of pulling togetheras a team. It's the underdog mask. If he went out and stole a game, you knowthat's what they did: they're going to steal, heright they're, going to skillthe same yes, yeah and I've been saying I've been saying for a long time. Nowthey when it when things started turning you know in a downward spiral, so tospeak. I started to say because I wasn't sure if we were going to winthat the Houston game went early on the season when the season started. Lately,I've been saying we need to steal that game and you know we went out and stolethe La Game Yep. We need to capitalize...

...on that momentum that we come back withand you know the crowd has to get behind them. Give them a lot of support, especiallyearly on you know a he might be a little tired because they had to go out.Tho dals come home, go back out the LA on short motives, Yep. So it's going tobe. You know, th they're, going to need that boost from from the fancs downthere tomorrow, especially early on the carry on through that early part of thegame. We need to get that early jump and I'm still saying we need to steal thegame, but this is definitely a game. I think we can win so 's, let's transition into tomorrow.How do we see they? Houston's got a couple big question marks they doseinjurie. I mean Lamar Millers, the biggest one Wel, the Andre theatrisgoing Ta play, I mean Heyeah, he just firstlly Listenin. His questionsplaying he's playing I mean Dandre Dandre is going to play. Lamar Milleris a gametime decision and he's been hobbled all week. I think o'rian was onwith Sol pawl talking about that, and it really is a true gametime decisionand they don't have much as far as backup running backs. I mean I've hadalfred blue in my fantasy team, the last couple years and he sucked thereand he's not very good as a pro either so right. You know they rely on thatrunning game a lot. So, if Lamar Miller can't go that, that's that's a bigfeather in our cap yeah, Oh yeah yeah. Sometimes sometimes teams let down when they knowthe backup is going to be in Yeah S. that's a good point yeah and I'm hoping that we're not there that wedon't come ou with that mentality, we're in desperation, move from here onout and we've been in desperation mode for about a month. My thinking has been every game forabout a month. Now has been a playoff game, oh yeah, you know and we're definitely tha desperate dogthat needs to get out there and start clone and fighting O we're at the BarTwelve beers. In one hundred and fifty eight the music's come up, the lightsare coming on. In two minutes I mean we're in beyond desperation, not that. I know anything about thatanymore, that life is gone, but that's where we are, but we've been there whatyou mentioned this being the tough game, you had the rams that you know Ithought maybe they'd win one of the two, but because of the way the season isgone now you need to win both of them right. You know I kind of counted onlosing one of these games and you know who you couldn't have figured on losingtwice to Dallas and certainly try to see or Carolina where we didn't protect,leads we've kind of dug the H l, the eagles have done tehold the sho sure Ihavan. I agree. I saw early in the season whenwe went through the schedule and picked our wins and losses. I picked La as aloss because of all the different factors that were going into the game y. of course, during the course of theseason a whole other slew of factors come into play. Example, I right it isyeah, yeah and, and I most of those factors were going against the eagles.You know the injuries and this and that so I pecked the La game as a loss. Iand I thought the Houston game would be a win, but then the within and then tha. Youknow I thought Houston would be a decent team, but I thought we would beable to get the win and the way the season started out for them Owen threeand then they won. I think ten OI erow sure that so I think it actually workat ten. No ever since those four losses, the only lost afterthat was a tough one against the colds yeah more to twenty one. So right rightI mean techically, they could be on eleven game or ten game win. SRENyeahis point yeah they've been on a roll theyre. You know maybe theirinjurie start to catch up to them. At the end of the season we'll see theAunjrey Hopkins is the type of player that tends to drive defenses a littlecrazy with his legs. DECAN crocle reports expected to play Sunday, soyeah Heshe's soon enough, eittually, it's hot inte EA, it's Miller, it'sMiller, the guy that we're yeah Y, ah we're hoping, maybe that ankle swellson the flight here or something yeah yeah and their quarterback lots andhe's he's back Abe es he's a yes back off that injury and Wa. Yet yeaits alot of fun to watch. I agree, hopefully not too much fun tomorrow. He can. He can kill you both ways withthe legs with the arm. You know with those skill playersaround them. He makes good choices. He gets the ball in the playmakers hands.He picks up those yards when he needs to pick hem up. That defense is a solid,solid, defalse t I mean that defense. Is You know between what Clowny, mcclout, clowny and merciless?I mean that's, that's one of the best dofensive lines in football EAH, youtooth. They better bring it to yeah yeah, Oh yeah. They don't that'smybiggest concern I'f terrified for Mi yeah, eah yeah. I listening on the way over to tothe radio.

They said that what has fourteen and a half or fifteen sackssomething like something like that plan: R, eight or Nohi Yep whens itdefenseive back at eight Saxin season. I mean you know, that's crazy! I meanyou got to you got two book and Defensive Ends that are sure monstersnews to mean. So it's going to be a challenge, but I was listening to ThoChristmas music on the way over how was getting in he the spirits of St Nick sowell, I knew we were going to wing it today. So I had A. I got had a boneupon my steel, some material Yo someof erlute there, you outely so yeah wefacea a very formumablepponent opponent. Tomorrow, especially in the defensive side. They have thosequestionable injuries on the offensive side, so they need to be ready. Theoffensive line has to have protection. They've got to him. They'vegot to be, you know they got it. Set up that wall in front of in front of foldsprotect him falls has to help his cause, get it ridded. The ball quickly makethose quick decisions as quick, reeds, get rid of that ball. Let theplaymakers make plays you know downfield after they catch the ballshort passes. You know get that Ge. Those yoar you gotta do Quick PlaceTomorrow. Yeah like we can't have that line, get beat up the whole game, noOrl, no next it'l be on the grass. Some misdirection calls maybe and I'll getthe defense o one way and you got everybody oother. Last week I mean yougot small wood involved, you got mmols involved. You know, you've got to keep doing that.I thinkthat's that's part of it, you're right that line's got a block, but Ithink the defense, the eagles defense, has to create turnovers. Yes, andspecial teams has to create Thei Osweah, I mean they had an interception. Lastweek they had the two fumble recoveries. I guess they had two interceptionsreally with Madekson with Grahm, so you've got to get pressure and you'vegot to create turnover. That's how you beat that team, the the you hear,sports people involved in suports talk about the law averages sooner or laterthey're going to catch up to you. You know one way or the other. The Eagleswent through thirteen fourteen games all the way up to the Dallas game, notgetting a whole lot of turnovers. Then we get three against Dallas. We get twoye two two or another, three against the rams with the fumble and the punt y. So maybe the law of averages arestarting to turn in our favor with the turnovers and we start to pile up someturnovers and that does nothing but good things for your offense when youcan get get a short field, get extra possessions capitalize on those extrapossessions. So I'm hoping the law averages are starting to catch up inour favor because they sure weren't it earlier in the season. When we werewhat we were plus seven Anand, ten twelve games, whatever it was, that's aridiculously low number right through the course of Ha season the bee. Well,some some of its luck to I mean sure you know suret, gram, interception. You Know Matts and fumbling that punt,you know with three minute slaft in the fourth quarter. I mean that was anotherplay that we, the vegles weren't getting those plays you're, finallygetting some breaks sure, but we're also getting some bad brakes. To I meanyou get Elliot missing another field goal. I mean this kid you know isdynamon as he was last year. I don't know I mean he might be looking for ajob next year. I don't love kickers anyway, Toi' loyalty to them, butthat's two weeks in a row or you know you missed the extra point, gainstallase and then at you mean yeah no offence, t him, but that's a verydisposable posession, especially when you have fifty o other two guys toworry about exact right ring or no ring yeah yeah. I have no loyalty to himwhatsoever. So you know that k. He cannot miss any type of extra point orfield gos week within reason. I mean I'll, give thim, you know fifty an out,that's difficult, but anything inside that it's got e yeah. It's got to be onpoint and they're going to hate those points. Yes, they are yeah. We Houston's tha type of defense. Whereyou get the opportunity score, you got to take advantage of it. You got it,you got it you get inside the thirty. You got to come away with at leastthree points. Yep there's no two questions about it. You know, forgetthe Red Zone you get inside the thirty. You got to come away with three and you know fals has got to do his his part of andand dogs got to do his part make him call him please putting guys inpositions to borrow phrase from a coach from the past. Well, you don' You knowwhat the other thing to I think dog. It's interesting. I almost feel likedug coaches upperd down, based on who he plays against, like he kind of kindof blew the game against Dallas both times. You know, mcvaih is supposed to be thisboy, wonder and he steps up and devises a game plan to beat the Rams O wines anexcellent coach too, and you saw what he did in the Super: Bowt, don't Shetit yeah. Hopefully he comes up with a game playing amorrow, that's ther, goodpoint ix, bl be and not to go back to la too much, but the look on the sideline on Showmac vanwhen they went at the camera it was like. Oh my God did. I Thi lookscompletely lows tat as a twitter moment...

...for everybody. Yeah. Do you think at some point untellar you?You know you're involved in media much more than deckoneyed, that some ofthese guys are aware of the camera and it's almost like they get these momentswhere they know they're going to live an infamy. They just roll with it. Youknow what I mean. I understand why you say that, but Ithink do you think they're just I mean I think it's kind of like ifyou're in that you know intens of a moment at your job. That's kind of thelast thing on the back of your mind, but I understand why you say that I'mgoing to think that's what it is, but I can see why I would think that, becauseI mean once he have to benefit from that. That's true! That's true, but youknow you see some of these that turn into twitter memes. I mean the Eloe, no,you know Jlano off the fields or like when, like you're up in a blowout sure,but when it's like a moment like that, I think that's hard to. I maybe he'snot thinking that, but he's definitely posing a bit for the Keming. He is inLa so yeah. There's a little Hollywood element there. I think about theALANZOA morning, one that everybody uses when you're confused, where alonsof Mornings on the heat bench and he's kind of talking to myself. A think thatI think that's just disbelief. Well, you know that. That's what Ithink, God that I don't have a camera following me around all day, becauseI'm sure you guys would have a laugh factory with that mess. Good thing they.These phones, Dhatn't, exist thirty plus years ago. God might still be locked up somewherethere. there. You go yeah yeah that that just that crackedme up whenever they went to the sideline and showed his face, you knowjust amusing and it was good to see that it was the other coach bfor changewith that look on his face and not our coach well he's become kind of a hate,the face guy for me yeah. You know I don't like Garrett, and you know I kindof see him with the the La Scruff and itj kind of want to pop them one Idon't know he's kind of getting annoying. I I don't like people thatget to you know the boy wonder type of Yeah Cay lald on them. You know Kiffinhad that for a while. This guy's been more successful, Tin Kara, but it kindof reminds me of that. I mean they haven't, won anything and everybody'sheaping praise on this more F, the UNAIR unearned arrogance on thes base,exactly yeah go yeah, yes to and the fact he's thirty something years oldand he's Azy ANFL D, Kid thirty thre years old, he's that young yeah. Ithought he was like thirty e thirty nine he's Younough to be your son Wow. Maybe he tail EOL thirty five minutesto get there week, biologically, yes, mentally! No chance!I was having a kid atnineteen. It happens all right. So, let's, let's sweep thatonto the rug, an well sweep that on let's get back to tomorrow, so how wefeeling about tomorrow. What's our confidence level on on our on our hometown team I'l, let tellerspeak to that first, not great with the line for Nickholding up the whole time. I am definitely hopeful for the actualoffense to excel, but it's going to be hard to carry this guys for for cortersand yeah. I don't know yyou're not seeing number seven in your crystalball. Are you no okay? I hope not. I mean I H. No, no NAT sodfell, pleaseyeah! Nothing against you need, but yeah caseyou're listening. He should be an answer to trivial question: Alright,twenty years right now that about it for Nexacke he was the backup quaterback for the Eagles in the sover bowl yeah. There's your trivia question. Ithink it will be close, but Houston's been on a run like I said just besidesthat cults game two weeks ago, even killing everybody yeah they have and they do havesomething to play. For I mean they can say absolutely o absolutely yey in thefirst rend. So that is that's big, yea tha sure it is do ecause. I think new INGLAND. I don't think they're they're, not one or two right, cood TCSKC and the charger Wen they actually the Chargei on even one or two. I thinkit's up for grabs its up for Grad yeah, the one in the two spot are up for grabyeah. Okay, so I know for Shurein the whenglings out kcis one or two YeahCasey and the chargers are eleven and three Houghton's ten four Pittsburghand Baltimore ar eight and five well Bot mers aid, six New England's: Nine.Five WHERESA INDIANAPOLS colts are eight and six two yeah antenses eight and six yeah. I mean anthink an happen Ey, so everybody'sgotta Win Out. I there's not reay any. You know case he's fighting for thedivision, wit San Diego I mean or la I keep saying. Sandiego ISO great, Imight say, be steltin o a while yeah. That's it man for you, kids, on the thirty go. Lookit up hm I'll sedden, there's teams in the AFC what a thought yeah how aboutthat yeah right yeah, and it hasn't been like that in the last ten tofifteen years it's been y knowit's,...

...just been new wes Ben Baltimore, newingland Pittsburgh and over everybody, and just about everybody else coming in,but I think worthror six well, I think we're finally seeing the in to TomTerrific I mean yeah being his being the same age as him. You know you're,seeing him start to fall apart. My shoulders fallin apart, he's fallingapart. No the same time. How long have we been saying that True Yeah but thei?I saw a stat this week. They talked about he's thrown five interceptions underthe blitz this year, which is most in the NFL, and then I think it was thirdand long like his completion percentages. I all time low. So it'skind of you know he's not picking up that rush as much kind of see him.Turning his shoulder he's the fundamentals that used to guide heareare kind of slipping a little bit and I think th that comes with age and itcomes with. You know, an ultimate breakdown which you're well aware ofthe physical specimen. To add to your point, but not in myconsideration, Hes I've read recently his knees or Unte has been given himissues Deah for a while. Now I don't know if he's been on the injuryreport every week, but for a knee which need would you trust anything coming atan injury? Ana Group? No Ayeah, we don't talk politics, but that's liketrusting whatever comes out of you know the big guys, twitter, correct, Wolla,no Bert for in the morning. So you know, I'm not trusting anything comes onBella checks, ine report yeah I, but he has had in the injury for a goodportion of the season so and they said and what I read. They said that that'smessing with his mechanics he's not getting that same zip on the throatthat he normally gets. Due to that neajuryhe'shis weapons orhis feetaren't getting planted Welso, you see what happened. Josh, Gordon, with downthe weed and ronks hurt. Again I mean they've been battered a little bit yea,not really replenished the weapons up. Yeah know they haven't and then theyget rid of Jimmy Garopelo. You know so yeah I mean that's just in step withwhat they do. They don't you're exactly right. They don't get rid e, don't restock the weapons that what they do. You know they keepthat offensive line. They try and keep that EFFR offensive line effective.They you know T, I think, that's been a key to their longevity in addition toright. Well, that goes back in Te Cansh I mean that's the old parcells modelright shoid line, but yeah so whati'm. Sorry, your confidence levelfor tomorrow, Hi Hi, very Goy, okay. I think they continue this role. You seethem embracing this scheme. Ask We're going to rob you kind of mentality.Nick folds has won a a shrine in his locker. Now I mean it's Tu, that's likeright out of major league. You know fuck, you, Jo Bu. I do it myself S,that's! What's going on there Sorano were's, he yeah we're sports PA Ers Oen you need them. I mean it's pretty awesome I mean I don't knowthat somebody's Goan a be sacrificing a chicken in the locker room, but rightright, you know that type of magic is what carries teams right. I mean youknow the still level. Is there a difference on the field yeah, but whenthey start believing in themselves, I don't think that can be understandd asilly thing to bring everybody together, kind of means more than it actually Meiyeah, because a lot of the. If you look at a lot of the matchups, it's chalkright, like players, I mean the difference in speed and size. It'sminimal yeah. So when they start buying into that O yeah, I agree with you,Taylor. I think it's a thing to rally round for everyone. It seems Silin. Itreally does matter right right in the mind of an athlete, because they'resuperstitious to begin with or yeah. You know I agree with you that Isside, how do you think Carson'shandling this? Well, I mean he might be the nervestman in Feradelphia, exactly forgetthe sil got an ego and someon te at theendyp Yep forget all the religion and all the humility on ther. Nea O bar is not here right.Underneath all that you have a professional athlete, who's got a verycompetitive nature in the fire in the belly, and who's got an ego yep. So howdo you think he's handling this little demotiononor, this well, no Sryn allythe shrine to to nick. It's got to be tough because I don't think theyrallied like that around him, and I think exactly you know that. Come thatwhe, I'm talking he comes out and performs like that. It does a lot ofthings right, like absolutely the lockef rooms, believing in Nick foles.You have a Texans defense that you know probably looked at the game last week,like everybody else except me and said: Oh, my God, they're going to get smoked,you know they're putting nick foles in and then it's magic, nick, fals againand everybody kind of has to everybody get swept up in that yeah and I thinkat some point you know to your point: Carson's got to be sitting there going.What's he got that I don't you know, I've got a better arm, I'm more mobile,you know, I'm the pedigree and it falls is not he's got more. Personality ThanNick Falls does and a both...

...you're not having a beer with either ofthose guys. I mean I. I can see myself having a Berau car son now you'rehaving you're having a coffee post church Sesson yeah. Now I think you could have a beer thwith Carson. I don't think he drinks, not judging that, but I don't I go. Itdoesn't seem one to put them back. No noall right. I mean he's not going tothe Champagne Romam no and he's not sipping on POPs at at nine o'clock inthe Moor Nopa. You are yeah whatyotalking about well, but there issomething to be said with that where these guys are embracing. You know, Ithink you know Carson is the unquestioned leader right becauseyou're like the franchise, yea woder back an hat respect them for that. Butthere's a there's an embrace with folds, then isn't there with Wente yeah, and Idon't know what that hundred percent you know is he's also he's also walked.The Walk I mean Yeah Guy won them a super yeah. So yeah it's really hard todisk yeah hat. It's the same Guy Lockroom! It's not like. He went to adifferent team and they're going. All right he's got this pedigree yeah. Itwas his team. He beat the patrots when Tom Brady threw throrver five hundredyards Ye, you know agame its life. Nobody can say that, except for Nickit's a one man, clubs right and nick falls is the number one he's he's itfor that club. I mean that's insane a that. He was able to do that so so whatthe hell happens, all right, I'm gonna, I'm Goinna, just say it. I think theywin thomorrow. I think they win a tight one, but I think they win somethinglike thirty, seven, thirty, four, I think sure yeah you know I don't thinkyou're going to stop the Texans offense. I think it's just going to be a more ofa shootout, but what happens just dream a little bit, I'm not going to saySuper Bowl, because that would ot put this. I mean that would be my gard,this Awa on the radio. I didn't listen to the radio, so O play off appearance.First, let's, let's Sa when tomorrow, first all right, he carries them to theplayoffs okay and he carries thet, meaning they don't win in spite of him,they wiln because fe cause of them and he drop. You know. Let's say we getaround or two in the playoffs. What happens here? Nothing yeah, Carson,STA, some point: Nothing Carson, STA, a Sinm, not saying get rid of Carson butof Carson, can never get fully healthy, different story. If not, then I meancome on. This is at conversation, okay, okay, how about this? He does win theSuper Bowl again and agains Ulese, but ITT. If he does at that point, ow muchPOPs did you have in there bairly a set. It was delicious if that happens, andI'm not predicting that, but I'm just playing along. If that happens at somepoint doesn't dog have to say it's an open competition for quarterback atleast now? No, no, the guy is if the guy wins too Super Lik. He won one andI think he's earned that he went ta open, Competiv, Wor, quarterbackcompetition. If he wins another Super Bowl, no n! No! No! You said affor oneheearn. I said he almost tearned it off O one. Okay, but let's say you wansanother one. You don't think that stop. I just said if you Yo Dont Ein alittle bit. If you don't see, Hi see tat you law, I see the differencesbetween them. I agree with you. I agree health. That's all! The Li Carson's abetter player. There's no question, but there is that I don't know what it is:Jim harball had it as a quarterback there's a certain leadership rallyaround fols that were saying smore. We got not desperation, nothing else: okay,ithats, more yeah the player, and I think I think somebody has to get intoCarson's ear and say: Yo Dude, there's more than eighty six on the field findthem. Well, that's the coach job, yeah or th Mo rank rihts job who's Gon begoing to be coach of the year this year, ore. Somebody Yeah Right, maybe NIXK, fall, says tohim: Hey, while you're enjoying that s fon of the bench. Look, I'm throwingthe ball around check that out guy. No, I h I'MNA, that's not GTHAT's winy!That's that's! When Danny White and Roger stalback happens again behind theshed and they duke it out. If Carson or or nick does that, the cars and God Iwish those two would have bring damaged each other. My life a lot easie andeverybody else is round nere. No, that's that's terrible all right! Well, my confidence level isnot as high as yours yeph. I do think they win Yep, I'm not going to say it'sa it's a. If we get into a shootout- I don't know, I don't know if theoffense is back to last year's level. No! No! No! No! You know so I don'tknow if we win a shootout. I think the defense has to show up again and we gotta limit yeah. We gotta limit there their star potential on the offensethats ot. That's how they win. Is We get turnovers going yeah? I thin.That's really. I want to see a defensive, touchdown yeah I mean thinkthat would be huand. I think it would be necessary to beat this team and especial teams got to continue. thertheir steady play yeah. You knowthey came up with a turnover last week,...

Yep, it's not because somebody hit theguy with the bally, the guy fombled it on his owne and we just Havin ta landon it. That was nice. I think we need to you know the statespecial teams need to continue that steady play. A turnover from them wouldwould go a long way to helpin us again, but I think the Keyis, the defensecoming up strong, coming up big again and and limiting the damage that theirplaymakers make. I'm I'm all the of the opinion of maybelike a twenty seven. Seventeen kind of win, Othsend, a seven twenty kind of win, maybe Twsendy, seven, twenty one. Youknow somewhere in that neighboroo we're not going to pin you down. Are we now?No now I'm leaving my options open a as the elder statesman on the show. Ireserve the right to keep my options open, Fairo score there you go so I'mlooking at that that kind of a game. I think that you know, I think ouroffense scores, because we have been scoring in the ties. You know thedefense has te Limme, specially we're playing at home, so tha defense has thohas to bring it tomorrow and keep that keep that offense. You know to keepthem off the board for most of the time you know they're going to score, butyou got to keep them off off the scoreboard, most af the time, so I'mfairly con FROIM. You know, sixty percent are better that we went to war.Nice Yeah. Now, isn't this nice going into the holiday season right like amonth ago. You know we almost had the eagles close to dead three. They werelife supportig noonta support after the Tas good Lord, although Covar an nevercame in for the last right men yeah they were on, they were last right.They were on the lit on the list of lastrights WHO's, next yeah and nowtheir backfront and center, and it's interesting it's a gift, because youknow I want the eagles to go as long as they can, but it's also become adistraction from all the other things that are going on in Philly sports. AsI say the last couple, O minutes, why don't we touch on SOA sure yeah? Iwanted to get into the into the Phillies I've been saying all long. They don'tget either or it's and and I'm starting to think that Isaid the DJ yesterday I said the longer Machato has to think about it. Yeah theless likelihood he's here yeah he should have walked out yesterday orThursday, maybe not with the contract, but by Tomby yesterday morning, say yeah, I'm signing with the phillies that didn'thappen. He said what did he say? I want to take the weekend to think about it,I'll, let you know next week. Well, that's basically Ho, given the Yankees,you know time to come up with right, threeyr exactly but is exact oustrating,that's kind of like you know we're trying to avoid this, and I know Sanais working really hard to find Jimmy Butler jerseys right now. San is goingand his helpers Goingna be looking all afternoon, but you know we went into the offseasonhoping for Harper or Machato and we're going to we so farm at Cotchin, whichis a nice, but it's almost like you wished for the big bike. You guys yougot tit. You got like a tricycle tricycle, yea, it's frustrating there.It's frustrating and- and this owner you know, he's going to go from, I would say kind of a neutral figure to you know,someof that we liked with all this potential. He could end up being one ofthe most hated figures in town if they don't get. He Jon on the dime sure andyou're speaking at John Middleton, right yeah, not clintact. No, I'mtalking about no I'm talking about Medleton, where you know you open thisbig mouth and we're going to be. You know, spend a obscene amount of money.He said and don't set those expectations, my man no, but no, notnot so you know and that's where I'm shocked that day one you know.Obviously Harper wants to get paid you're in Vegas you're in his hometownand don't even meet with them. Like my expectation, was they drive to hishouse with the brinks truck? You know, dump four fifty on him or whenever hewants and say hey here, you go we're going to make it impossible for you notto sign what you need right and they didn't do that no and they're going tostruggle because of it, because people have lost interest in this base inbaseball in this town. I believe it. Yes, you know, thet look at Thi theattendants last year it tenit is down. I think people are frustrated with theanalytics. I think people are you know the ball park is the the newness of that Nov won all it's fifteen years old. You know, andpeople are spending the money off where the flyers that's a mess, but thesixers have really caught fire in this town. People won Le have so much sportscapitalts bet around and the fillies are dangerous by becoming close tobeing aron m yeah. I agree they in and the I think the the common theme was that we were going toland harber and that's not looking likely either, because now the dodgersmade two big trades with with Campin and Puig they're, making room to land'sHarper. WHY DIDT RE? I did read their still so they're going to release homer,Bear Bailey and he's nineteen million, so that still counts against their capor in the luxury tact. So there's still seventeen million over the luxury tack,okay, so they've still got to do a lot...

...more sure, baseball luxury tax. I thinkit's one for one dollar for one for one yeah, so they're, I don't know thatthey want to pay that tax. I think they're over that ondred ND, eightyfivehundred and eighty five million, but you're right they're making movesin that direction were the phillies a few weeks ago they treate Santana, theybring hoskins back. You know to first base, I think they're making moves yeah.Now we're going to get a we get mccouchan, who, I think, is it nice fid?Yes, I have no atly hits twenty seven homers. He plays a nice on my field orright wherever you Wann, the plats abaroom leadership on based percentage,nice slugging percentage, it Mada lof it tees. It makes the team better. Yeah Cigaramakes the team better yep, because now you can put kingary back at his naturalposition and second base. His natural position should be screnten or well be.Hig Valley he's not ready to PUK big, as I'm trying to be in a Christmas moodhere and not totally trash the guy. Well, I'm going to try because wewanted to compare h kind of agree with you ut everybody wants to be becausethe Philadelphia loves the Hustler and you know weo, say HehasChase Yean he's not atway. You know we did the same thing with WHO's. Thethird baseman left Hant the C ash ashy codyash OwCoty ash that he reminded people to chase out Lim didn't turn so yeah. So,but if they're the big moves of the offseason, it's a bomb, it's adisappointing off season, the citelist. Will they win more games yeah? Theyprobably will but they're, not what if they expectanionare just built up to this point, hat yeah, it's going to be a do, foreverybody mean wey. WER nationals are better. The braves are better. The metsave made moves the mettin metter MMM, I mean they could end up. You know inthird or fourth place in a division, and that's you know for a young teacerS, a disaster yeah, and I saw something on facebook yesterday- that the lineupsin the National League, central each team, has four or five hittersthat are just like wow, that that's a good lineup right there and it's everyteam in the national central. So you know yet that the phillies got to makesome some more noise if they want to be considered to have a successfuloffseason and the only way it's going to be done is to gland one of those tolYep. But I'm starting to think it's not going to happen. I hate to bring that bad news yeah, butwhat W atyou mention you wanted to talkabout something before the show started. What what it was just kind of alongthose lines of you know the gifts that we were hoping for for Christmas andthen what we've got. You know we've gone through some of those. You know wewere hoping for a healthy car, so arson wencs. We got folds we're hoping forMachata or Harper. We got mccutchen. I mean I wasn't hoping for Gritty, but wedid get car to heart this week. I'm actually interested in meakee a littlebit again yeah yeah. That could be a nice president unof the tree Um. Yes, I like they. Finally, you knowbrought the kid up. He's really still really young we've been hearing aboutHem for two years now, he's still really young nineteen years old yea.Well, no he's actually twenty, because he on he's twenty he's. He wanted hewas, the second youngestsecond youngest Ale t Wen his his debut at twenty years. A hundred twenty sevendays. I think the thing said: There's there's still a lot of hockeyto be played for the season. You know they have to make more moves.Other than that you know they got to get more defense.They you know, I don't think the front office is done with the with the benche. You know. As far as the coaches are constrihed they've got to decide what they'regoing to do. There are they're going to keep what's his name, Scott, GordonYeah. Are they going to keep Scott Gordon, permanent or Oony? Peep Hemminor keep talking about quenvill, but he was alfring. He had better things todo, I'mmany still getting paid by the black howks right. Maybe there's movesto be made, I don't know, but for me I haven't watched much hockey the lastfew years. I me neither frustrated with what's going on there, so this is kindof a giving me something to watch sure. My son was like dad you're watching t aflyers O yeay yeah. Why Not Yeah Hen? I told H M, you know the kids in thereand it kaves you a little bit of hope which is not yes, it's something to tieyou over during the week. You know waiting for someday and then hopefully,after two more Sundays, we keep playing. But is it going to be enough to carryyou through after football 's finally said and done El? That's what thesixers are for. Well, that's another story to get into. I'm not totallyconvinced they're enough to keep us tied over come on dude we're going tofind that a lot on Tuesday tonight, ellthe Raptors tat I out but ystill I mean that's a team that Ol Golden State last week by twenty plus,so ther's still ther's, so killer team without one of the best players inthese yeah. So you know yeah we're going to findata lot over thes overtonight and on Tuesday they need more...

...death thatisned. They need a for notnot a power Ford, but they need that. Fourth Guy in the lineup. That bringsit. You know Nedid Dario. It's a shame that he had to be included again: YeahThird, big peace, yeah, that's where they swung and missed where theycouldn't get ething done over the summer, couldn't land a big free Asian,because then you wouldn't have had you know coving con. I I'm fine giving up,show hat Jimmy Butler Bachcorette you're right. They are missing the gapwith with Dariol they're missing. They need another shooter off the bench tomand. I don't know that Awst I mean Austin rivers is out there tell youtouchi yeah, not not, he doesn't really excite me trever REASA, getting traded,I mean they've got to figure something out, but the the NBA there's alwaysgoing to be guys that are going to be on the move. Yeah at some point- andthis is a destination we've seen that the last couple years is it oh yeah,absolutely for the guys that are you know, ishiring contract, absolutelyasn't for Lebron? No, I'm not talking about him. I'm talking about guys thatend up contract N en we hear all lashe summer we were never doingy were nevergetting tall. I said we were never getting Le Bron, but I heard a lotofcause. We Ben Citing my older song. That's because we didn't get thegoaling goose doesn't mean we can't get e something else below that level. YeahI mean she's going to Malvurne rig right right, Reberti, listen! Last yearyou got bell Anelli late, yeah Nilyasove, and you brought himback twice. That's what I'm talking about that's, but that acquisitionhelped them. I mean there's ne a Li them to a six team, shoning streak,sure that will happen and that's what I mean by attractive those guys thateither get released or ore in the end of the contract. Thay hey get me outhere, give me a chance to play t I'm not it'sexpecting something on thatlevel, because I mean looking back on it's like how the hell did they getboth those gys of the wavers m yeah Welo of them yeah. They should haveresigned one of them. I agree. It's not a lot of money, I', really a so f. i anice piece to have. I would have liked to have him back over bell nil, becauseI think bell knol he's a one truck pony t at one trick scorn points Boh, yeaheah trick is shooting the three which yeswitlove right now, which, unfortunately, on that one three shot was actually atwo but o at the end of the BUZZAGO. At on the Begin. Yeah went, Hey, went in,but it was a two instead of a three. If it was a three we went it would have, we would have won thatgame. I mean I have a car. I wish it was a CATALLAC, but it's still a card.You know I mean I'm right there with you in fact mine's right next to yoursout there yeah, I it would be nice to land some playersat you know trade deadline, free agents, you know whatever opens up, I don't know if it's going to happen. Idon't know what we you know what what what we have in the works? Well, Oto,granas thinking about. I don't know hi showd you that he's going to beaggressive. I mean the Jim Oser and I like that. I like that yeas mart and Idon't. I don't think they sit on their hands. So you have to go for with theyounger guys on these chaper contracts. You do like ewindows. Only OPENSO IC on Teve Hyou know how long is BenGongon want to stick around with this people. Talk about him, leaving stop it.Why? Because he's dating a Jenner that stop and that's not got nothing to dowith that, he's not going anywhere. No, why would they if they show enoughwinning culture? I think it tas yeah. I think he likes it here. Yes, I fuck.They got to get pissed that first Roundang. They got to beat Toronto andBoston. Well, they got E, not being Toronto. I'll tell you that no! Ishould I not right now, but they could be bought Boston, struggling Boston's,not the team. They were you don't get pissed like I said atParkwoud and tell you what are I know thet. I know how the story ends beforeI open the book they're going out in the second round. If you, if you wouldhave said that before the playoffs last year, you would have disappointedyourself. That's that's the PAS lik that e enfifty two games. Last year, yeah, I knewee, I sow it her still like andthey went aut to seon round and they went out without a whimper and they goter. They Gota it's the first time they got back to the playoffs yeah andthey're young Joell and beach twenty four years old, Jesus, yeah, Thound,twenty fiabout, unfair utation, exactly EA NBA takes some Tim. You get to yourpoint in life where I'm at and then you're going to have some unfairexpectations, because you want more parades on the street man. You stillgot plenty of time. Left hat you get Sodothe guys on the Sixers, which is my point yeah you just provt yeah, I'mgood with where they're at, and I think they can go. Deeperhood wit, wherethey're act, because they're fun to watch their Theyre inthey're, enjoyable,they're, a good team. I you know I like Jimmy Butle, I like Bat, I like Jellyou, but they got to start bringing more yeah. But Y? U Y? U To win in theNBA. You have to have three superstars now right, like that's the kind ofprecedent, umset yeah. They have that. So if they can add other pieces around-and you get some of these guys ta step up, I think they're right there I meanyou. Can you can't name a bigger trio...

...under thirty in the NBA? Really? Nookay, I'll daree, you tat, but we tanked for four years Ohboy, but thatIsnot okay, now right, we no! It does have something to do with now, becausewe sank you sevl years s, twenty o out there to the point where're at now batca see twenty one outthe further along in the Playoffs Deek you have atgeneration player. You have a guy that might be, I think, could end up goingdown if he spends his whole career here he can be the best six orever likeQheton, I o kind. I don't say that without understanding the Hist, Iappreciate the history of the Son Haves to bonafied supersars Superstars super,which is impossible to gop five players in Thea, both of them maybe top six. Ifyou want to put Ben not six, Yes t well, I thought you meant Ben All along he's,got it develop an outside shot, he's got it he's got to progress his game,his did'll happen. It's going, Tho they're going to shot him down and theyalred. You know look what Boston did last year in the playoffs, I'm moreworried about that cenishes than has shot yes more woaried. WHAT FAL raishesyeah! He doesn't need a Chot right now. No well at what point is he going toneed a shotane when they wait still can advance past the first round Wen? Isthat Le Saysm isn't what he relied when he's thirty years old and he's beenmaking all star teams doing what he's doing a Mr Gretchelli Ol hes? Now Ijust want. I want more from from the team. I want them to be a better team,they shouldn' Ave hundred and fifty two games. I think that might have been theword of the Soran Winstrey kelped. It might have been the best and worsething, Tho happen because theyare these expectation, I said Yeah Yeah over thisguy over here and- and I know we kid around with you know with with my agewhatnot, but you got to understandwhere, I'm coming from I'Vei've seen way too much losing, for you knowfor fifty four years and life should know how the therebe a works at the Mi.I no that's what I'm surprised by you know. It's it's been there's been waytoo much losing on my end, not nearly enough winning think about people thatlive. I in the New England area think about people that live in New York. Youknow they've had nothing but winning. You know if Hary Avenban yeah, if yourYankes Fan g, the next one thousand nine hundred and seventy three Nextawlis talking aboutthe Yankees, you know en the giants have have how manysuperbowls they got. Four Super Bowl wit. You know it's, I'm tired of beinga sixers. Are the Yankees that's but TDEK they're on the path, though,right like what we've wanted. The whole point of the process was to get them towhere they are now, yes and- and that gives you a window whether it's fouryears five years that you have a chance to win a championship. Hi just had thefoundation you need to found that and the foundation is stronger than mostteams in the NBA. They have to progress past the first round and I don't seethem doing that. That's my point I mean that's. I think that's easy to pictureyeah and I don't see them doing that for the next two three years. TORONTOSTAYS WAY The way they are an Boston SOMON. They are beleave at the end ofthe season, CAS gonna, believe hat and he's going he's not going to stay inToronto. He's Goinna go west, I mean theclippers, have a ton of money and there isiis contract up at the end of theseason. Yes, okay, so that's why they did that and then you know, but as faras they'e not progressing, I mean you look at the east, the only teams I seereally strong in the east going forward, obviously the Celtics in the box, butthat other than that I mean I don't believe in this. You Watch enoughbasketball. You believe in this pasters group, not particularl. I mean that Imean they'll, be tough to Havin a series, but I mean I don't really seehim killing anybody not as a championship team, though right therethat they're in that purgatory its Toronto and everybody else. It's to runont everybody else, but the you know the Pacers are in that middlingpurgatory shorry, where therre Lik you're going to be a perpetual four tosucceed. I mean I don't know Dicki, I don't know my man. We started on such a high note yeah. Wedid and I don't want to diminish that we gills are going to win Tomo you'rein undercover New Jersey. Next Fan. Aren't you no? No Se were I'm wearing here, Uhhuh now eagles win tomorrow. Yes, it's acompetitive entertaining game. Yes, O we come out with the wind. We go downto DC. We get that win, I'm sorry! LANDOVER! We get that on there nuringthe playoffs still need some help. Yeah we need help. We need. We need a lot ofreal yep, real, quick, lass question. What the Hell is was the Chris Marigosthing like. Why is why is he announcing his surgery and not the team? What you know why youbring up a good point? It's it's so odd. His hope. Why wasn't the surgery monthago, his whole presence is odd. Why did...

...he speak on the art museum steps to theSuper Bowl parade last year? He didn't play in that. He didn't play in theregular seaset od point he's a special teams. Goa Point: Is he? Is he a figurein Philadelphia? I couldn't tell you yeah, I don't get it. That's that's agood point! Yeah! He should't have been speaking an IT's okay for Carson tospeak, but somebody like aper smargoes Li Yo, car e, certain I mean he'satching after thought, honestly until you brought it up until they announcedit. This week I or till he announced it. I forgot he was even a dor around tet,a glpin yeah yeah. Yes, I'm M in that. In that boat too, I forgot he was onthe team. You know it's a shame, because he did he's a he's, a solid,really good special teams player, but a special Tean Flyer Dimando you put themon on the field at the safety and like gid thats, adding it's so odd yeah. Itis it's extremely oddyou're, exactly right, aeer, it's laied out the pasttwo years. It's kind of the Way Tho false thing is handled with him goingout to La to get better get his head to get. I mean hisshoulder together. Good luck wit that tax sixis amone. No, your band fromsixer talk, Jeez no boys in the fifth quartar going to lose their mind.
