And I really don't go off to put his wonder kind of around here. Yet yet. And you know now Mr. Big star I don't a radio star right the chance of you being spotted -- recognized even by people don't even know is that. -- career move out you have to have the people in Hollywood and Robert Downey June every guest that goes on what Howard -- rise of the day I had to clean up man you know. -- -- kind of a career move for you in his -- vulnerable human.

You know I do all -- time it makes it seem like him you know. I think it helped my career -- -- And what you you know. Yet for Beers a meeting yesterday I was like -- -- a strange look good for you many -- bacteria but at the shop we didn't know it feels as though it's fine it's absolutely I would have done that had a note. What -- minded person and but in spring training you know generally does need -- driver so you'll be -- for that problem. Because he's to reach out to children after drugs over the more all anybody that you have sort of trips state trips and to welcome us.

Woody talk about an open telecommuting just talk a boat you know talk about how. Lucky I am to have family in you know I'll I don't want to be the situation where you screwed that up I screw that up. You think you might well but I wanna beat her two young umps though don't you know I'm yes I probably will screw up but you know I hope not yeah. For your bank I'm proud of you now the tackle and a little dean on not worry about it at that point. You know -- -- an anonymous and not a not a -- are not a -- or alcoholics anonymous was east central portion of the blacklist on Sunday night where they had a meeting. Guys went around and talked at the meeting I ask you if you see the ship to ship I am not. You have a bond due to our DVR that you have a DVR. Now it's on demand it is okay yeah that's how obviously watched it will Sunday nights was the creepy -- yet until -- -- -- before blacklist the economy is trying to get -- -- trial on. -- -- to be our next week. -- select city today on the West Coast this week and is there a program that Alex is the KG insult exit. There's -- OK geez here we could send about we have Mark Wahlberg -- -- and LA. Yeah always. Crude up and I thought it was a good interview I thought you -- the guy who filled in for the you know that the Lenore and went the other guy that a good job but we never asked. We only Adam and small -- of hell I think we have five minutes to like nine and then he did give us some extra time and that it was the into the -- we never asked. How they set the coach greening up for the patriots yes because -- -- I believe it was directly Belichick the wall and think well Wahlberg to Belichick when it returned his call they discussed because. Belichick when out of the way out of his way to say how gracious ball right -- what you want some studio guy -- Awesome movie theater guy it was Mark Wahlberg and he did it for the patriots because the Broncos went last week -- this week. I don't final one night it was the Broncos did the same thing with the lone survivor. And one of the Broncos. It which got talked about it fox talked about it -- she hit a reportable fox just. At practice walking over the media and -- talent jokes and one of the reporters said this he's the -- he is indeed the -- Belichick. As he talked about lone survivor and on the team and Jordan all this just volunteered during practice. It. So October 30 who did the Broncos. I did not October 30. It's -- it's that whole -- October 30. They've also Halloween -- think that would not editing. A so they saw before the patriots. I guess -- this is Broncos dot com Broncos thankful lone survivor screening. We'll leave it orders tumble and I don't but the I think. Somebody reported this -- this week last week when that recently very recently. And obviously it is true that John Fox's father was they've sealed. So he had a connection he really loved that he talked about it the media yesterday. While -- -- practicing and it just -- play and I know you know he has heart Belichick doesn't right so this sort of broke though. His quote put the fix they they fixed -- there repaired and that stuff to duke is it's so big and so warm. And hard to go check it almost healed itself check a check so cold hearted. If he -- he -- of his appraised it. That's right well our look at what that actually go on next I wanna say good and -- permit them and in view Belichick believed those showed an excerpt of the until Sunday and then they'll show the whole thing. Belichick cities aged ten years this year league this year cause it's been stressful. Every game down the wire. I think he just that was just to have made up answer I don't think he has I think Belichick. Said this the other day. More than any other coach and high pressure situation. Has just become comfortable with the pressure and doesn't let it get to them. Does it look like he's -- like -- president. He looks to say he looks and -- -- -- the -- he -- he's made his -- he's very comfortable with that life. With -- that life which drives other guys. In Satan in on the age their hearts break pretty -- goes grape -- like Turkey internalize as it well and register went upstairs it was certainty if you had a guest do you think key. Right now is sleeping like an average of good a good night's sleep for coach of what success idea that you think he's getting six hours or not. Public he's got it all down and nobody's comfortable in this game writes that he's comfortable you know -- in this pressure cooker right. That's the only thing else the team might be the same but the challenges of you know find the right person to do the right thing and change from passing dolphins to a to a running offense might be Easter visible -- his fingernails. I don't know it never seen it does have a prior what else to see you know does he does he -- hair out quote Sarah cut himself. They got out itself. It -- the sneaker quick smoke like some talk show host to the little smoke -- area is just as worried about the redundant message. That's definitely a trick is to try to say the same thing. That they've heard a hundred times already this year but it's somehow has a little bit different ring to it that they can buy into -- thinking -- of those. November December January. And you look at your notes and sent that's a good idea I think I can spend -- -- -- -- always this story just worry unnecessarily ones that are heard that story before. That's our that's our he was sound similar with -- Berman he likes certain right and in which pros if he wants to yes he could do it yes you could be engaging he could be informative. I can imagine talent council and haul them kind of -- ten years this season's -- so stressful but he likes Burma he hates Tom Jackson. Also show the deal was keep that got away from -- they sent objects that you would do it. And it's too -- it would be great to have -- -- -- you're here. Dump all over EPO -- tip that would be great they should listen Tom Jackson and yes. They hate their coach it's hold that against them for ever known Tom Jackson dies. And they asked Belichick about -- and no common what do you think the relationship between Belichick and dungy who -- accounts is a great guy nice guys got hearing because he brought up spiking -- mentioned Bob boomer the other day -- -- hold that against boomer 'cause I do yeah. I do now I almost felt like boomer. A boomer was striving for a little balance he knew that coward and -- even the whole panel must -- -- -- more supportive of the patriots across the board the boomer in terms of predicting they're gonna win and being at in admiration of the organization. You know I -- because I think -- you -- down as the greatest coach in NFL history but he also as the storm was caused -- -- I'm going to say a lot of people don't like the. I don't think that was critical from boomer standpoint he what he said was true there are a lot of people. Who think it's a date a mar a blemish on Belichick's record because spy gate is there boomer didn't say I think there's a moral path it did. Moralists the peace often in this smarmy it's absolutely of course -- Rucker are a lot of people who want that to be more mean if if if somebody is -- It's widget is but I mean they wanna glom onto that and try to diminish everything he's not human -- the into the NBA I inclusion hi my game. I grew -- Sounded pretty happy must like those. It's like those it was a -- all those guys in our case you know I don't like our. Luckiest -- well. It was a very upbeat about it that morning but I think you can be the greatest coach ever which I think Belichick it is. And I think sport you can also cities -- you to knock your record and was running they hear someone mention spike I dare you. -- and it was -- do to help you I love I love how and we went over this year. On the and I heard somebody do this yesterday afternoon. -- themselves into a pretzel saying. It can help them win that game open Belichick's not a sneak. A cheater. -- -- -- Right we would take back from France get fired half a million dollars for doing something that didn't jet that is just wrong Belichick is a brilliant man. He would not do so -- -- didn't help right here that would mean he was complicit in wasting time yeah right right wasting time and they like Sammy Sosa corking a bat. And on and off both sides guys corking bats don't doesn't help. But Sammy Sosa's -- you know we didn't he took a chance -- itself and apparently doesn't really help. You -- spy gate fine the whole thing helped. Yeah probably believe it is right province but by no Belichick he would not waste his time doing some that didn't let activism half a percent chance -- Do you think -- are backed hurting the hot water off in the locker room and the heat up in the locker room might have helped Celtics back in the day sure. It's like bill amends and whatever it yet legitimate right he just didn't think you know Mangini would rat him out he thought it was there was honor among the X. And then there was and that was it may edgy regrets it today is day 6177797937. We come back. I'm going to present to you the cliche that has resonated. This week on almost every media. -- platform. You can think of that is driving me -- nuts people who think they're saying. Something enlightened about this game and these participants it is absolutely driving decrees.
