Let me ask you guys quick question before I died in the why I'm asking do you guys think that Colin Katherine is a good quarterback in the National Football League now. Michael. How are you find geared up it's. Worth having on the team. Or potential starter. That's a starter yet. That's a starter yet immensely yeah sure. It was it was it is probably Better Than Ezra he's going to be better than his replacement separatist. Right we better than whoever replaces themselves is whether it's lawyer whether it's Barkley he's better in those guidelines that if you rather have Colin Kapanen and implying or what you. 2013. Or fourteen temperament you know last year she's been terrible yet but Brian or porter's. Awful I don't know why he employs gonna turn out you'd rather yet he will be better than his replacement so. Yeah a low end starting out to the bottom five starter in the league to be better if it unless the browns trade for Jimmy grapple will be better than the the starter in Cleveland and a and a couple more cities were nothing special no. Well today's Spike Lee has taken up pollen count predicts cause a lot of property yesterday's use media on on into Graham. Media posted a picture of he and Kapanen. Any wrote I'm quoting now. Just had brunch with my brother Colin Capra. How is it that there are 32 NFL teams and cap is still a free agent WT half. Smells mad fishy to me stinks to the high heavens the New York JE ETS need a quarterback. Who was that JETS quarterback. Is my man Joseph Willie name of coming back. Crazy times we live in the question remains what owner in GM is gonna step that step up and sign Collins say their team has a better chance to win. What crime is Colin commit look at the QB's of all 32 teams this is some straight up shenanigans. Subterfuge skull dug Korean BS while you date. Show enough. I'm quoting back up by any means necessary and that's done no fund leak proof Ruth. Which was actually fairly well written I thought it was clinical very the whole idea here is is is there some sort of a league wide. No I'm damn good I don't need this guy is is there's some some black balling going on there. The spikes seen him play the last couple leaders but he can't be that upset about a guy. Who is three and sixteen as a starter over the last two years. Completion percentage below 60%. Indiana vote we talked about before that's that's bad now it's embarrassing now. And yeah Brian wars aback or wrecked their few bad quarterbacks that your team a backward Iraqi news another bag or record your spend money on another bag cornerback. And it'll get better and Glendon. I do but Oakland's better. You know it look at Colin Japanese plastered and relies on numbers are deceiving and only a did not watch him for Cisco nor should I have. Watch Sampras is much last year Watson against the patriots and that's it they were terribly bad team right. So they didn't deserve my attention but I didn't realize he sixteen and four last year sixty touched on four picks for the forty niners through to nine point 2% as Richmond. A 2002 and 41 yards. I'll force career 72 touchdown passes thirty interceptions. Amateur upgrade yeah he's a good quarterback. Who did something that note let's just this month saying. They most teams. Our. Are upset that he did not Stanford and well and that and that's what comes out. Why do you think he came out recently and set on on doubt that I'll be stand at the end them from now on. Because you know this is in our cities got an issue out there but the other players deal that was the other Brandon Marshall of the needs that need didn't Eric Reed who does he take any right there are capita. There are a lot of guys did and there are a lot of guys who better to contain or you know and on the patriots we have about Martellus Bennett and condemn Cordelia. Raised a fist. I bet that a hard target a job to do not have a hard time getting a job. Moriarty had a job. Cabinet that would US you know who's better cap record Glenn and glad at least has all the more the unknown and it seems her brother take a chance on that I think there's there's we've seen. Will Capra can do I guess depending on what your offenses is that even a guy that's worth. Bringing in I'm sure bonds Timorese eliminate them because does he get a fit our system here. Well that's the thing when he was successful when he was good. Yeah he was running that read option offense that they were running in San Francisco and I think most teams are saying. You know by stick him in a nor in my system in Hillary is not going to be that guy anymore and he hasn't been that guy for a couple of years now right look I do think that there is some black balling going on that if you're on owner. On the sale or even more than a general manager the general manager goes to the owner and says hey listen I'm on the about citing Colin Kaplan. I can see on the same hole well you know there are other guys of their other unemployed quarterbacks out their right now. Jay Cutler Josh McCown Ryan Fitzpatrick RG three there are others out there and why this one. I mean will find a guy. He's 29 years old. Hasn't been good for a couple of years now really was only good in that flu keep this kind of offense or are you owe me off on Friday. Yeah and and and didn't what Woody Johnson came out last year and said you know he's part of the reason for declining ratings for to us. Which is funny coming from a guy who owns a final Ohio also 5711 team. Also wondering why did jets aren't signing him you're not but I don't it won't let what he's better than whoever they have. So Arab they're a handful of teams who. If they signed him and even and we're looking Adams thing I thought that grade he's OK or in about that is used to be. It they're few teams who signed him they would be getting an upgrade. Over what they have right now on the jets are one of those. It's completion percentage last year was 32 in the league in 59 point one that's inflow. Seems low especially in this day and age AI don't think he's that good quarterback and a bend to. He's certainly not a good enough quarterback. That took. Have meet overlook. What I think is an issue with him while signing in to my team. A lot of ready to overlook it that's the other I don't need to overlook it you did I. I don't have a problem with you don't need to agree with me and everything if you you've decided last year to take me. During the anthem you had a problem with sir you wanted to protest you there's so you want to bring attention to certain things you did that and you said now you're gonna stand. For the anthem. So what quiet woman Rajon Rondo would keep going back to you know last year we keep going back to what I saw an I didn't like. I personally I would have promised. But if your general manager did have a problem with that the guy already told you not gonna do it. Except what happens when a sign into a contract in. You know decided on season he's backed down on one knee again Lorena either way Ebenezer distraction for the team as some teams like the patriots are great at noon when distractions at the patriots I don't. Maybe one day he'd answer some questions that be done they would talk about it anymore but other teams know a few of our rookie head coach is this a guy that he wanted to bring in. If there was capita if you have a free agent fresh off of 2013. And he was taken in the all that year produced playing like he wasn't another thirteen some team is gonna sign them. But it's maybe it is the combination if not just these terrible quarterback but a terrible quarterback and even wanna have to answer to questions if your coach you wanna address that for a minute. What you what did you with the media or would you rather. Have somebody else come in here who may be as good as cap predict or Italy somebody who hasn't played as much and has a chance to be better I think that's what teams are thinking right now. These are extreme very. Uncomfortable feels very sleazy. Especially coming from the National Football League where. Every every roster pretty much every roster you can look at. I can find you something. From a player on that roster that. That rubs me the wrong way that that is much worse in quote. What Colin can I predicted I did it all on almost every roster in the NFL does not care. Most say they just say oh I just hope you don't bring it up and and they hide behind this whole distraction talk a distraction or might not. What's destruction. Will would may make common you don't think there's all immediately got votes for prenatal it was a huge applies studio team to have the reality about it it'll be it'll be nonstop for awhile and in some teams like a third won't be able to. You know put it up a way that say the patriots or maybe a couple other Francesca the last it was a distraction for the 49ers last year. Maybe yeah every day every week that every week not every I mean him for a while there was this team is being asked about it because he wouldn't talk or Lyle. Was he talked he talked about it it was. Probably that the first month of the season it was a big deal. And then nobody really talked about it because nobody talked about the 49ers they weren't interest in there were bad they were bad team. And then for us. We ever talk about don't we talk about it like the last count on nothing oh last month and a half of the season we'll know we're focusing on is the patriots who were actually winning tomorrow that's what happens. And so they were focused on in San Francisco was big story for a month. They may start to realize oh. Talk a historian. In on the ailing for the anthem is terrible. Oh brother another thing Chip Kelly really hasn't turned this around. Another thing a general manager Trent bulky he's probably going to be out of a job they just moved on from that story which is what happens so if you signed count I predict today. You would beginning you'd have a huge press conference and get peppered with questions about the happen and when you get questions about the other before the first game of the season if he decided to start. Yeah and not to censor if you decide to start him yeah. But your point is good and and they they get asked about his gun in his. And over. Did that give myself a formula that's. Because now is not good war the Lotto Lotto or even entertain that in the same way that many people talked about his his right. Two to protest the way he did and and he had every right. You're exactly right. Well the other owners in the National Football League have every right to say I don't want mommy team. Yeah I can just tell you this the same owner who not in I don't know who's gonna sign him but I can guarantee it. The same owner who says that Colin Capra nick is is a distraction not a one among my team is probably considering Adrian Peterson. It's just sit me. Our work till right now that recognize that and not even get any visits is in doesn't a much it's. It's not sickening and Adrian Peterson's case which you think it is in tampering skates. Illegal verses on don't know I'm not I'm not god it was quite good but I'm saying if an owner says not a one I don't know. And I don't think it's likely that somebody would go after Adrian Peterson and then look at cal in jeopardy and say I don't want the distraction. He'll get somebody who's got a record somebody who beat a child in yet a guy had a peaceful protest. Didn't do anything illegal part of his right to an American citizen. And you know that's just not what we're looking for on now so you're looking for rocks. Looking for somebody to agree review and you what you want somebody who doesn't really have a thought of his own I think yeah that's that's bothersome to me. Although it I do find it ironic that I don't think Adrian Peterson's getting any offers he does not right now it's all about it's about if they can play like it's as simple as that it has been for a long time and I think. With Peterson. There's probably more questions about whether he can play. Compared to whether or not we think he's a good person because most most general managers owners don't care if you're in the third person they don't they don't know whether it's capita Peterson miracle because I was looking Constance. Or whoever. But right now that the question of Peterson is does he have anything left but that's the question these are pretty even in the quarterback so that if you combine that with. What ever the distraction happens to be that a lot of people say what's the point but if you knew for sure that he was good it wouldn't matter wouldn't matter what they did. Or maybe they wanted to just move on maybe they wanted to move on and wanted to first start but I I am confident saying that the people who replaced. Colin Colin jeopardy are our worst quarterbacks. Indians. Yet I think you had on it that's ever Cisco's one team that might say forget it but we we have this guy for how many seasons and then we're gonna we're gonna move on we have. We have a new coach we have it we have a new GM we're gonna have a new quarterback even if he states we're gonna have a new quarterback. It's just want to move. 6177797937. Rick's up in Maine irritate. Pretty that I get to let. In. I guess it. Game morbid distraction in my cap for next cause was I think that kind of drown it out or cause I think truly knew what has caused. You know I got some friend and colleague debt. Let back ad aired during the 68 Olympics when the few African American athlete won golden silk currently oil and they didn't get their faces are no box and they actually ate something up or you know shame and start from that day. They should have but Colin can't predict got paying. Eight. Didn't matter that did not you know I don't whenever you get down. Any worry about any backlash now that he's already they are still getting paid. So when wedeman so. Hundreds. It's so elaborate I'm just computers and computers by reports he says he it there's there was no risk since he had a a paycheck. Is that. Well you know I still got paid eight artists UG URP. Thirty go to the party in money list. Well the fact that still kind of confuse. America the what is cause was. Americans know some Americans were confused by and some more we'll cabinet was one was confused I don't think he really the straightforward message on the view day and every and even votes it is very strait yeah yeah always gonna fry I don't know I don't. Yeah straight forward message I don't know it was a straightforward I want that he could vocalize yeah I'm I think it was. I think for him didn't need years and give money to. Or it can become million dollars to an organization as a part of his press conference he gave a million dollars. But it didn't matter the body didn't matter that what mattered was. And I think it's. I've I think it's kind of not accurate to say you didn't have a cost. I think what we're really bothers thought Pete was that he did what he did. And what no no matter drop and absolutely no matter how well articulated. The his comment was they're gonna people they're going to be people who just had a problem that this guy decided to do so. I don't think Colin Capra neck is some professor or I don't think he's oratory. I think he had a problem with he said he had a problem with inequality and in the United States which is broke yup it's a product of broad topic. So that he wore you know pig pigs this obviously getting these as the Sox that's a bad move and then. Really dumb move that. Then he did any of what they gave money to an organization particularly with the press conference that is that are going to be given money in the Lake Tahoe resort. So somebody's gonna get it and then I think later on he figured I forget where it ended up being but yet he didn't have that rate ago you'd first. He was asked about it news kind of music it's on summer. Yeah that's I think. I think his. Move was effective. Because it was we're still talking about it and we were talking about it at the time. And even if he didn't give you a crystal clear what he was trying to do it did get the conversation. Going to about what conversation can remember is her strain we weren't sure if he hated police officers that there was. Did he hate the military which I don't come true every topic was made Boyer in general conversation and that's what he's like. And maybe you don't maybe don't sit taken means that every started sitting on the bench. And any that it turned into a neat so we had that open but you're right immediately everybody said. He hates the troops the bad that's what it turned into and that wasn't the case but I thought it was so destroyed whatever his message was. That's not what people were talking about and so that's why I don't think you it was a a great job of Barack. I ever will. Only I think the next or the next guy can do it next guy can go to the professional and speech writer. Who did lay out three or four points here's some planet and Macomb. Very marketable and treatable. And if you do that. That becomes the action the actor and what's really listening to what yet stated just pissed off that you're doing what you're doing so. I mean you know I don't know if it was and articulation it's issue for it was just an action issue. There was action and a lot of. Toms on the cell phone hey Tom I don't. Yeah yeah yeah so that. Yet so I'm wrong I don't get your act here or what but it won't get a healthy okay money. I'm out sport but not out there are public debate how tightly that the money thirteen when he periodically and I think all of nobody actually goes to the plea the quarterback trying to reach current published career are not okay actually which they ought. But he didn't really liberal wing English show when he capability and not 10 dear what they. Yeah you know I think he wanted he won it thirteen million whatever number was he would have opted out of his contract. Get a chance the heat he did he can stay. Doll there's something there's a loophole in there that he really did not that a fourteen million a look back at what it was but that. That was in the case of it though I think the niners could have gotten rid of him at a certain time and not advocates though. He he I don't know if that's what the question though Tom that because that's another reason why some guys may still be a free agent Darrelle Revis and other Soviet Russia. Again aren't saying time and yet they know they all get a lot aren't deep dark undercurrent that they will be auction block. Because that's an essay and woody crazy you're not that kind of guys that kind of player anymore. I don't know what he's asking for I don't know what Colin capita was asking for remember when it's protest started last year with a backup quarterback. It is about quarter answer. So Latin last year Hoyer threw six touchdown passes no picks but he played five games last year. Barkley had eight touchdown passes fourteen points. Other out of I don't from the same does not know if both those guys played on the bidders. So. If you moved from the team with a third worst record in the league last year to this a team with the second worst record. In the league last year's so that's it for fiscal quarterback situation is a mess with or without Colin peppard. Herald this in west liberty. Errol laid on. Yes hi polio is good I just wanted to do give some support to Michael's point about camper next. I do believe that he knew what it's caused lies I think it was black lives matter. And dying I think that he is being black balled and frankly. And that. By the way I just one comment you guises. The best in the afternoon not dale. Shout out to vote followed my son went their to use so anyway that's going to take. Thank I appreciated and he he was he was ill prepared to articulate about I'll say this you know whatever his cause was. He he he seemed at peace seemed you know. Ready shoot game like right he did it first and then when he got asked about it he just didn't articulate it well at all while he had. I mean by kneeling or sitting actually did that start by sitting during the anthem he got all the attention. So the other the attention on and on and it led every sport senator it was on national news that pseudo sports talk and throughout the country was talking about it. So we got the right idea as far as how can I get attention for something. And but then it took awhile to get there and it was so it was so distracted from the point early on and so many people as Michael server merely turned off by it. And just assumed. He was speaking out against one thing or another. It's so yet it got pretty he has mismanaged there. For awhile but he also wasn't really the starter and it was that is on one of the worst teams in the league so's. It was quite things that surprised that Sampras Cisco wants to move on from. And now the question is has anything even offered him anything like is there a team that's NA can be our backup your backup money we we don't know the answer to that. I haven't read of a single visit now for he or Adrian Peterson by the way Peterson's the same way as running backs are finally starting to get. Signed out there right Eddie lacy and guys like that. At the try to get Marshawn Lynch out of retirement for crying out loud in Oakland right I I've not read of a single visit that Adrian Peterson is meant. Now I think he's nuclear as well for most owners and general managers in the national football. And as look at some of the you know yeah undefeated story on. Some of the causes for. Colin jeopardy and donated 25000 dollars if you wanted to donate a million dollars to different organizations of his choice. So he. He donated 25000 dollars to the black youth project 100. Which is dedicated to creating justice and freedom for all black people. 200000 dollars. 125000 dollars each to Silicon Valley debug. Just cause. And urban underground if mothers against police proved brutality. Gathering for justice Justice League communities united for police reform. I will not die young campaign so I think that's where I mean he'd be talked about. He talked a lot about police brutality. In some of his early interviews and I think that is caused there to cost. 6177797937. Is telephone number. It's dale a Hollywood keeps Sports Radio W media remarkable and four. Members of the vote.

You wouldn't take so with a lot. And he talks about his concerns which are valid and important I think basically that yes the rim. Win when you beat the rams he was talking about injustice in America and I believe some of the players were uncomfortable. That petty Hillary takes over the room yeah they call. Oh he did experience game won't do. He should turn down patients they thought to be another time I was in the room were you in the room. Yeah it any which we disagree and he took what the rules you think it's appropriate he should be talking about those things differently. I didn't asking us questions. But I we have fundamental disagreement and straight pars and think about something special. No truth to the rumor that's Mauricio Ortega in the last time you actually heard him do an interview armory some of them say anything recent out there. He's up there myself and kind of blends and and face that stuff that he needs for those of you were just joining us feel good about more real easy Chip Kelly visor he followed us Delhi's bottom. The Eagles on Maurice seal Ortega is apparently the guy who stole Tom Brady Super Bowl Jersey out of the locker room after the win in Houston. When the FBI apparently. Went to say hello to mister Ortega in Mexico. They also found Tom Brady's. Jersey after he won the Super Bowl two years ago 49. There is some fought in Denver but he also stole Von Miller's. Helmet and or cleats on real evidently both of those things came up missing. After the Super Bowl that the Denver Broncos won so Mauricio Ortega. The former managing editor of La prensa and Mexico. But no word on our whether he's going to be arrested for all this stuff. I think so well you'd think. Based on what we heard you know they put a value 500000 dollars on Brady's Jersey. That's that's of major crime. According to what I read it it calls for jail time of between five and 99 years a large margin on their they don't you get the judges got some wiggle room there's little gray area. But the FBI is involved in the Rangers thought our vault this hour of those you have it Artie back thank you went way he's definitely have to. I would thinks siege yelled Sommer a Grammy go to go to court throughout Switzerland for two. Years I've been learning you donate a lot of it. But what can order whole piece on whether or not to determine the value as the actual cost of the Jersey or the secondary market. To me that's silly the actual cost of the Jersey. I mean anything you want you know this guy collects memorabilia for reason. We which means grand theft them Alia that he's. 500000 dollars is a value they put on it let's say attack that. Let's say it's 250000. Dollars that's still grand theft Democrat. Bad bad move bad move Mauricio. And I laid it out already thinking you'll get a credential for next year Maurice you know you're not getting anywhere near that place credential for next year lectured me that it would. And hey if it. Can't make it the Minnesota and he'll be there. Back to the call 61777. Nights if they're gonna have much. Absolutely we got that why I don't know what's going stutter count but you I don't know that Philadelphia. He's what he's thinking well I only steal it from the Super Bowl MVP you know it like what the hot you know signatures. Had to get access to locker room what did you do who turned her head what would your cute that you gotta go ahead Richard. No yeah. Kind of like that the psychology of the criminal this guy can get credentialed and parcel. Wrecked it or think about that and other parents Jerry Thornton on the sidelines this guy's got a credit yet another case of the NFL's to be fair I would credential store either. Thornton is anyone's steal anything of Brady tore when he would creep amount now he deftly steel it would Deborah Russell. Lot of water. The bottled water that's the idea that happened excellent. Valero it took Islam does sip out of a bottle lettered there. Down now and solve all at home involved or edit on the mantle reported all over body and all over his body sleeper Ronald strip tease yes Monica I believe the bottle got a place of honor. On the mental. Analysts say it would happen in Ottawa. Well I'm gonna I'll model seen some things right. Small things but things that's what we'll follow the Cyrus. And that show was 06177797937. Peterson Foxboro hey Peter I don't. And good guys or non. Bet so that the cabinet saying you know where things that strikes me. This is really indicative of the whole. Culture he each unit that can stand. Many people don't agree with that and now he's being helped partly accountable or whether there is collusion gnarled up as well. It's unfair okay now might take. He didn't agree that he hasn't sent an error he has it also got a guy. Tell me well that was likely Spike Lee said but he's not the bad guy he said that he. Don't know if that's what Clinton thought about Peter Peter Peter I'll let you go on but you gotta look at spike Lee's career. You know it's likely. Is is a guy who comments on everything so. I don't think I would. All that most Latin. Comical. He's on our race it that's already a lot. 90% of the time is it racial or what I'm saying it. Mean it that makes he hadn't anything. But the mob of his supporters and we're looking at the mosque. Detractors. Now he's in a position where his dad might actually caught the money. And all of a sudden oh we should feel bad because you don't want them I've gotten tickets and he even edit and felt that it could potentially cost them outlining that would so what are you complaining batter what the other people. Like you know I would complain about their Peter and instead don't hang up that's what I wanna see how you feel about this. I do have a problem with. Of the NFL in particular who observed a moment I'm not talking about banks and not talking about radio stations war or schools I'm talking about the National Football League. That employees. Each each team a league office for that matter in and it's the most reviled. People. They had you can think of who have done sort of things dealing illegal things. And a guy who does something illegal is being black ball because. Owners and general managers don't like it I think that's really strange don't you. Well what is going along with that rich said earlier is if you were good. That this would be happening correctly last year so he made the choice. And out with Detroit and guilt or back it up so that problematic but. It is problem and people shouldn't be surprised. You know they get. That's a good answer but I do you think he. You think it should be a problem for somebody who was it. Do you think that you thought that's either got it is that is that fair game for somebody who's a good quarterback who. This I think the controversial stand do you have a problem with that person in black ball. And I am glad that quarterback. Position is important to talk about the leader. The court vision for. Great question. And I think I'd respond by saying. Is unique because he had the quarterback and he is needing to be controlled that locker room and I think he'd be rational Reggie ever looking and saying I might be 60% of people that grew. Who are gonna buy into that even if he is the start out safety linebacker. Eddie what performing with step at a cabin in the I think that. It would be a little bit different I can thank you all are from the big you know low light. It's chock full. But performance. Position at any role in the back that you'd have to rely on that had been buried at the lack of your idol. That there's a lot played about I think it actually fairly logical looking at it from a perspective that yeah. Yeah I can happen but let's. But I think that's it was a logical turn your quarterbacking over to you Matt Barkley Brian where you say and and also. But I think they're also saying this guy's not any better than them anyway. And I've got the other just does he spends I don't know archery is on the amount of grant park police topic but that's one team that they don't want him anymore they've they've had him for years like they're out there move on and I'm William Barkley and where are terrible but that is there there are they gonna move on. The area find somebody else. And that the probably draft somebody knew that I. Place. And it's also it's also. A pie in the sky and it happens here. But it doesn't happen everywhere where your quarterback is is leader of your team now some good quarterbacks only Tom Brady's great leader of the team. But you have some. Middle of the road to good quarterbacks who were not. Necessarily seen as the faces of the franchise as the team leaders everybody's got to follow them what are people of Miami think Ryan Tammy who was the leader of the team. By the leader of the offense and I bet I would say 28 were and are thousands quarterbacks are tatters and that's I would say that now when that's a you want to. Right and what you're gonna want to hear is by life but almost by default they they force you into that position yet you're not exactly prepared for it. Because it you said you want him to beat you want we're gonna make him beat I mean. You'd be hard pressed to find a team in the in the NFL where the starting quarterback is not a position of importance and one of the team leaders well I just as did one. I know ten widely seen as I did I would not be any better. That if they may with you later picked it ain't gonna let this guy up and down he he even had scout team guys talking trash to one. On it was recorded. You lose their leaders. They've made that may be part of the proud of medicine doctors who I don't all right so then but I don't think it's trying to you know he's a leader of the golf gonna gonna pump cannot bring cap. That that's that that's we're not talking about. Who would you rather have Janet hill or capital like I said it's a good thing it you would want at your quarterback be the leader that's different conversation. But your quarterback is not always the leader of your team's not always your. Your your guy who's gonna rally the troops. That show was. Well that's 177797937. Peters and Foxboro hey Peter I don't. And good guys on you bet so that the cap for next thing. You know where things that strikes me is this is really indicative of the whole. Culture he each unit at the end. Many people don't agree with that and now being held partly accountable or whether there is collusion Carl I'll bet. Oh. It's unfair okay now might take it. They should be hasn't sent an error he has it also got a guy. Right Sony goal that was likely Spike Lee said but he's not. The bad guy he said that he. Don't know if that's what about Peter Peter Peter I'll let you go on but you gotta look at spike Lee's career. You know it's likely. Is is a guy who comments on everything so. I don't think. I'll bet most what. Comical. He's on our rates it that's already a lot. 90% of the time is it racial or what I'm saying it. It makes he hadn't anything. But the mob of his supporters and at first you have to deal with the mob of his detractors. How seen in a position where it stands might actually cost them money and all of a sudden oh we should feel bad because you don't want and I haven't eaten and he even edit and felt that it could potentially caught it and I'm on the ballot so what are you complaining about it what the other people. Like you know I would complain about their petered and instead don't hang up that's what I wanna see how you feel about this. I do have a problem with. Of the NFL in particular problems of America I'm not talking about banks are not talking about radio stations war or schools and talking about the National Football League. That employees. Up each each team a league office for that matter in and it's the most reviled. People. They had you can think of who have done all sorts of things dealing illegal things. And a guy who does something illegal. Is being black ball because. Owners and general managers don't like it I think that's really strange don't you. Well what is going along that ridge said earlier is if you were good. Now that this be happening and arrested last year so he made the choice. And now with Detroit and it guilt or back it up so that problematic but. It is problem and people shouldn't be surprised. You know they get. That's a good answer but I do you think he. You think it should be a problem for somebody who was it. Do you think if you ask you think that's it is that is that fair game for somebody who's a good quarterback who. Decided to the controversial stand do you have a problem with that person in black ball. Yeah and I'm glad that quarterback position is important and talk about the leader. The court vision for. Great question I think I'd respond by saying. It's unique because he had the quarterback and he is needing to be controlled that locker room and I think he'd be rational urged the Arab looking and saying. I might be 60% of people that. Court and I actually even if he is the start out the safety linebacker. Eddie what reforming quick step could happen and I think that. It would be a little bit different. I do think he's far from the big you know low light. Position at any role in the back at you after reliant who hadn't been very good at the lack of your. I don't think that there's a lot to complain about I think it actually fairly logical looking at it from a perspective that yeah. Yeah I think I went but let's. But I think that's it with a logical turn your quarterbacking over to Matt Barkley Brian Hoyer who say and an also. But I think they're also saying this guy's not any better than them anyway. And I've got the other just does he spends an archery is Obama like Matt Barkley topic but that's one team that they don't want anymore they've they've had him for years like they're out there and move on and I'm William Barkley and where are terrible but they're there they're there with a good move on. The area find somebody else. Yeah I mean that the probably draft somebody may second place. And it's also it's also. A pie in the sky and it happens here. But it doesn't happen everywhere where your quarterback is is leader of your team now some good quarterbacks only Tom Brady's great leader of the team. But you have some. Middle of the road to good quarterbacks who were not. Necessarily seen as the faces of the franchise as the team leaders everybody's got to follow them what are people of Miami and Bryant had a hell as the leader of the team. By the leader of the offense and I bet yet with this 484000. Quarterbacks are tatters and that's I wouldn't say that no I would not say you want to. Right and what you're gonna want to hear is by five but almost by default to date they force you into that position yet you're not exactly prepared for it because as you said you want him to be what we're gonna make him beat I mean. You'd be hard pressed to find a team in the in the NFL where the starting quarterback is not a a position of importance and one of the team leaders well I just as did one. I know untenable I think he has I have always nodded yeah I mean thirty's I. If they make you later picked it ain't gonna let this guy up and down he he even had scab team guys talking trash to one. On it was recorded. You lose their leaders. They made that may be part of the proud of medicine doctors who aren't so then but I don't think it's trying to you know. He's the leader of the golf you're not gonna pump cannot bring capita. That that's. That that's we're not talking about who would you rather have ten hill or capital like I said it's a good thing that you would want at your quarterback be the leader that's different conversation. But your quarterback is not always the leader of your teams that always York. Your your guy who's gonna rally the troops. Johnson Boston Rajon made. But no we don't John Rachel what's that. Well and of course I want to thank you nice is. Michael I ought to boot you out you're out what you should quarterback. You everywhere and are you one example cheek up. Arsenal forgot how to forget about Jay Cutler puts him down perfect example. Part of example what do we see him let him as the opposite to what do you what he was he over the last eight years what's avenue puts him as governor now. What team was he on work capital on the miners are okay some of their he's got notes that you solidarity but you know the bears are athletic also had a team today. Please Timothy Butler gave that might be the weakest argument you've ever made except possibly get through definitely Edwards says you can do it fail you when dale just said. It's hard to find an organization. Where the quarterback. Is not the leader. And they they they they they would want to be able to make out I did take the Jay Cutler was the quarterback and the pairs for a I'd like two years gives an important for the bears for seven years about that at the bat the great example of a guy who's the quarterback. In not a leader is now. He's also I would just like temperament is he an easy to play because not a leader. Now what now to our record on O'Connor are the formula. Okay go ahead you don't hit it into it and we don't wanna be series job I think I've been putting the best interests of my. Trent Lott or. What you want to. That look that's fine I. My point wasn't that you'll never find a a quarterback who's not a legal rights that bothersome but at quarterback for the most part that they almost make them be the leader it it it's our job disclose that I the idea of right if they're they're not who was it. Who could who talks in the huddle department every single time so he wanted to be but obviously they're not all great leaders. And it is some can be great leaders but I got to give another example. When when Ray Lewis was with the ravens the quarterback no matter who was weather was. Trent Dilfer who we can ask him he'll probably tell us you know I was up leader of that team. Or Joseph Flacco with the Joseph Flacco was the defense whether it was ready or whether it was thugs or whether it was. Where was. Ed Reed. Some teams are just structured that way where the quarterback can be a fine guy and can get the job done but he's got the leader of the team.
