And he did it about cal Berkeley to imagine if you heard the voice of Alex Crawford where this is going. To be at one to thirty. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- This is like everybody's acting like I'm just the craziest man on the face of the planet for doing this for you you brought -- -- -- couple sales but yesterday he brought it up to Tim Taylor from 995 the wolf for granted to him in the hallway he made fun of me. Our esteemed producer -- McCullough made fun of me before the show. -- attack left and right here and I don't understand why it's such a rare occurrence of being his real literally nobody out their mail checks anymore. Does not happen. Happened in today's day and age -- today's society nobody don't know what else to know I can't tell you the last time I mailed it to blood first stop looking Amtrak -- prop -- the Postal Service the they are hard working Americans they deliver us our mail every single day -- you put -- you put an envelope and a mailbox it pick it up they take -- to go it's a great concept I want -- I want to keep them in business I would continue to give them something to deliver. Therefore I I'd want my things to be -- through snail mail. And second off does know is nobody concern about getting their identity stolen anymore -- -- not like a concern in today's society you can't and ET -- Jameel stolen length humans do -- this -- -- who's gonna steal -- who has ever stolen mail in their life. It is is that that -- Happen to anybody I'll -- my identity was stolen yes somebody stole -- -- that I put in the mail they still halfway between targeting California. That doesn't happen what happened did you pay your bills on line they steal your identity. Hurts it makes her feel better about himself five advisories and don't fight is this if there's one person out there that males there they are checks in any thing of whether it's rents metrics so hopeful bill. Whether to credit card bill -- -- you can mail a check in eighty point last year please text and show me some solidarity because I've been attacked the last fall. Our d.s -- you not concerned about that time span where it has to beat. Has to get to the destination in the -- thought tactically I got going on line just paying importance he's got an assault launched under now worried that somebody says there their grandmothers still miles -- -- Exactly right there I didn't know RJ I didn't have any carrier pigeons available that would be a faster right out the luggage is trying to prop up the American -- year I blame me I guess for being the bad guy if -- that I can't believe it but certainly a 29 and I've -- my bills keep it old school that's right. That's right -- are probably few -- old schooler right. Smorgasbord. Of sports topics. The Minnesota Vikings have reached a settlement with that punter Chris Kluwe week. Chris Cooley said -- he wanna do a lot of good for a lot of people Annie announced that his fight with the team is over. As so the advice he's initially announced a 100000 dollar contribution to charities that support lesbian gay bisexual. And transgender causes they'll make additional contributions to five OG BT friendly charities. Over the next five years the Timor also enhanced sensitivity training that is -- required. Throughout the organisms not. -- -- RL it's not enough people or look I'm really fun about people American economy right now and I'm not really liken it okay my -- my users check to a conclusion he is an old woman worked at a bank customers and -- stolen very often. I paid my shrink with the Jack I'm getting attacked -- upload it back Chris -- -- I'm glad this this story line is over glad that we can resolve this issue. -- -- The reason why they are here and I'm president elect gets OK all right somebody also attacks in I've built my checks only little children who don't like to balance their books -- online all the time checks are for grown ups thinking -- listening to an eight track like I think I admit I will listen to a paycheck I got a problem with that c'mon now. Yet she's what we've been sidetracked by checked out I. I blow away this is such a novel concept that that nobody -- checks that didn't want to exercise he's concerned he's a -- faxing in his messages at a Texans. -- The area like I can imagine doing a radio show where you actually like to cook. Faxes or you had to think I even now like it might hit like this is a dig generational gap might cancel saying hey can you. New facts that they know all take a -- my phone I'll send it to you or. All -- in some way a little email anti I'm not back seeing. Any kind of documentation T guys awards at 48 feet I didn't send it to you like that. I think again I was it was so funny yesterday at people's reaction. Wind they found out that you write -- -- a bit this text made my day right -- -- artwork for the Postal Service and I still mail Mike Jackson I think you you know you're welcome. And the fact that we don't appreciate the Postal Service announced that blows my mind like. Does anybody realize how easy that is you just put an envelope on your front they are human ruin Postal Service and Newman did Newman did that -- -- good -- the -- Scotland and -- felon -- but he -- -- -- -- -- -- put a AG a envelope on your front -- somebody comes picks up -- and then a couple of days later he goes for you wanted to go. I do and can we really not appreciate that ignore -- Is kind of funny to think about when you liking you can mail a package all the way across the country has won today it is set -- -- -- -- -- of Korea and -- I'll never understand because I am old school in this way. The people that shop online and don't go to stores anymore especially for close I don't get that either the whole online shopping they'll never get behind the -- you can order your groceries online and -- -- -- -- -- you know it'd take over the world it's I've done that -- the online graffiti on the on the under I was like liberal -- yet I. You know we know we come on man you right device to work is an experience it was in Chicago. Indeed it did they deliver the -- one -- did they did okay that's you know look I'm fat I'm lazy -- I can get used to that that sounds pretty -- food delivery like at least exert the calories it takes -- -- -- current I don't locked up and down the -- of larnaca in Dallas and that is your phone AT and with -- -- So parties in this brutal man this brutal I will say I do you. Is this is another relation thing we've got an -- relational strong. But I always get mail I get a lot of mail yeah and I don't get an email hurts us and it would not at all I mean he does. Is like analogous State Farm Insurance thing or something and they'll be some sort of insurance thing. That that dirt yes but I hit -- mail office and it gets he gets it. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Even if it's even if it's a bill I just when some form of bail instantly communicate -- -- through snail mail and get them. Magazine subscriptions that stood up to snuff out a Sports Illustrated here about that every week. You write those checks. With. The team in a feather that you get -- -- Griffey. Lakes and thanks for the kudos to the Postal Service we are the backbone of society you're darn right you are. You're down right mean we don't appreciate it also -- enough in this country. I might bat Brett try to prop up economy -- try to keep keep people a business here he is a milk may be that. -- -- What would be around with -- somebody delivering you milk what they yeah that sounds fantastic. Whatever has been a milk man that's a great point it's a good job. -- go to school to be a milkman delivered milk to people a hardworking and Ares and -- I don't know what we did there were back after this. And for the third and strangest served up by Buffalo Wild Wings on ESPN's Sports Radio 1080 okay. Have enjoyed reading your tax during the commercial break regarding dirt in his old habits you man mailed a physical check yesterday to pay his credit card bills. -- my mailman had rating here suited to my children. Sorry so as the asking questions absolutely you should -- everybody's got a milkman and their family tree at some point aren't so sure there's a melt mr. grant to jobs. They took me I don't logo that does not sound like a bad gig cannot just throw that out there deliberate -- that doesn't sound like a terrible game. Honest question is. How much of the milk you personally drinking and a severe -- this year how much to the military injury keep you going back I may delivery -- age years however today grocery stories and your referencing. -- -- Partner to Carter to the price of doing business guy keep the bones strong you're locked up but now those travelers -- -- -- -- have strong bones when you do it meant no -- no -- -- for your bones looks to me seeks out surprises I. I say this in in terms of this argument you win you guys when most people do not use snail mail or did not mail checks but I will say I've had a strong contingent of support -- I think it's closer to 7030 that it is 92 sorry guys -- can't stream the show anymore my AO LCD and ran out of minutes. And -- down what some of the habits that you have. That are old school or habits that you have. That you just couldn't let go look for whatever reason dirt is mailing checks to dislikes doing it like mail checks for the longest time I've talked it up for like a year ago I couldn't have a touch screen anything I can do an iPhone I couldn't do like. I needed a physical keyboard and I finally just switch and as I've battled of the thing. But that's kind of my old I don't really have a I don't think I have really old school things that I do you any -- as the buy CDs. OK idea to me and I still I need to paper copy books have -- at bill or an iPad it shouldn't that should never change. Think that's the next thing -- hold onto I even read that much meant to people that only read on a controller fire something come on now. I would agree but isn't there -- is there some novelty of having a book the smell of the book a smell of a book to feel a little bit like I'm not -- Could probably read a bit more my day to -- life but I would love to have a library at some point it at a later age you know. This have a little bookshelf of the what's your read -- expect that people coming to your house to get written brat like yeah -- Reynolds I know that stuff I've got a lot of books I own a lot of books and that's one man on a -- that's one of my duties that I'll never ever have a Kindle or is it any kind of device Brennan says he's still -- WWW. There you go -- -- you got more nestled on the past like that. The Big -- do that you a lot of the Basil read some of these crowds Crawford did a preview for us. For cal Berkeley you'll do that at the bottom of the hour to collect. At the New York Jets at 145. The wind chill foods Portland open is this weekend it is Thursday and Friday and will be out there doing shows up their lives it's a forty -- and obviously is the Web.Com tour so. At triple -- if you will for. -- the PGA to work in Tiger Woods was making the rounds of Rory map or they run Fallon yesterday but he had this to -- allowed -- -- about the future golf what's going on. Tiger actually comment in here's what he said. I was probably at that age when it started transforming. Where the advent of the golf cart really changed the dynamics you know we had so many of us were introduced. To golf they're carrying. Working Summers and is carrying bags of most kids now are. You know they got two cell phones and a fifteen batteries and they're just typing away knowledgeable things and that they want everything instantaneous and one -- down on and I know golf is not like that. No change what we're trying to get kids that can play further forward trying to get in -- impulse -- for the forward from it the game's faster. It's just different participation is it's -- heart and mean it's it's neat to see other you know top athletes like -- Michael Jordan. Play golf I'm seeded Tony Romo much of that the for celebrities and athletes here that's been encouraged out of out of game. He's still the sixties a little bit putting him in golf and playing really well I think that weren. He's he made golf cool. He made golf cool I don't throw this out there is Tiger Woods the most in genuine person you've ever at. I have the civil and every I was saying earlier he had raised up I -- that guide to Iraq. I just think back to reading it did text messages that he used to send the girls and sleeping with my dad I put those tax and that voice -- you hear me says the word did an interview. You're tiger he does little to do. All this is your -- would have a guy Ali you're matters at injured tiger. I -- I am curious though from our listeners and as you are kind of the crowd that the wind -- foods for an open is after. This this week in and I am curious if you're gonna go to that tournament if -- intrigue in it it is not the PGA to work. Obviously by any means but you'll see a lot of guys that have kind of bounced back in force and journeyman and our guys. This kind of in the marketing campaign and is a Smart one over the last 45 years or so. They point to guys that are on the PGA tour and they say here's your chance to get a glimpse of these guys. Both for they go -- to be big time names on the tour and I can imagine if you're able ought to Bubba Watson back in the day. Before he kind of blew up in the end Bob Watson. And that's the whole marketing campaign marketing pitch -- We discussed this on Friday when -- row after about the all star being in the all star game governor porn and help port lenders. Usually support events that come to the city -- got a big time event this weekend. And I do -- know I I've I wanna engage in this'll be something we can see when route there. The passion and then the level that an intriguing as people have towards this culture in me here locally this weekend. Yeah I did it will be series and carries how many people show up because it's gonna be fun -- going to be out -- broadcast live on Thursday and Friday is the combines it was not possible when you talk about 25 -- -- -- five cards are gonna be handed out to that yes last week five finishers and the cool thing about this is is it's not just like it's your run of the del -- dot com towards the last one of the year and this is -- these guys. The top 25 guys to finish this weekend -- -- tour cards and this is the only way. You can get on the torso to -- that's the exciting aspect of it in. To ultimately I do the same thing whether it's the winter hawks whether it's going to Hillsborough -- gave whether you on the giants -- Salem Kaiser volcanoes game. Would you get a chance to see some of these guys and younger age take advantage of it taken -- to see is some guys for cheap. I do that I love the little hot schemes to gold watch certain players you know that has already been a top ten pick. That has to be playing in the NHL a couple of your Seth Jones great example that he's. But third or fourth overall pick in the NHL draft he got a chance to watch him and at a smaller level and you got a chance to watch and dominate. -- that's the drop if you wanna go to the Web.Com three might not know a whole lot of the names of top your head. But at some point you're gonna know these guys are you go out there and you can have one of these stories. I used to work -- at Waverly country club and remember they have pictures of Tiger Woods all over the place they brag about it yet he won a tournament -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- gasoline and they do -- there -- these guys won tournaments when they were an amateur and now look at him now look where they are we saw them come through a young -- that's the -- I -- I love golf I don't know eating into this tournament I don't but they're still would drop for me. To go watch because the top three front guys are gonna be playing on the -- next. It'd motto of the PGA tour is these guys are good and in the difference between. Some of the guys on tour now and some of the guys on this tour of the AAA is is very very hard to see some of the differences. And it's just so a couple of things here and there and you'll have guys that long term are gonna be on that same level it's almost. Again where you go to -- maybe it Tripoli gaming you see a prospector EC gang go. That he should be in the NFL's -- like a clown you like when he was in college they can I get ready for the NFL. And the differences aren't that and -- that a parent. But with the golf this weekend and what to tiger's point starting to make it cool. Did you fix it let's fix all guys thanks -- -- Eliot -- let's fix golf finally do it in for one of the ways you do that is you gets. Kids to turn moments and you and that's when things are yelling go in this -- Jeff Sanders -- world forgets -- some point this week. Who put this turn on is that you've got to make it easy. For kids to get involved and -- golf like. Playing golf is one thing but seeing dolphin and going to golf tournaments and watching it and seen the greatest of those guys. Is a hole on the -- the uniqueness about golf from what we have this weekend is like. You've ablaze dreams are tiny go to marriage game CRX games ducks beavers whatever. You can go to those gains and how watching you play a pick up the block it. Then and very often -- you do right and India Turkey bowl or -- -- on getting and that's about it while you can go watch golfers as long you've got tournaments locally and we haven't had a lot of tournaments through some -- okay tournaments here Portland. A lot Champions Tour stuff. But you can see guys and then go out and hit golf balls later that day trying to mimic your favorite athletes -- that's another thing you got to do as you got -- kids out to these events. And and we have a have a lot of big time talent roll through here and so yeah I would I would be curious to I am curious to see how this goes this week. To me I I think it's going to be packed I really do because you say I would we've had LPGA tour events -- that have been sold out I remember going to the Fred Meyer challenge all the time and he said Fred Meyer challenge out here. There's been a lot of big time tournaments and have come through and usually there's a pretty good too you know of a pretty good crowd pumpkin ridge is a beautiful course. We got a chance to play at their last winter I'd never played it before I loved -- news beautiful place to go out so idiotic to do is go out hang out -- future golfers it's for the fun -- It's been curious to meet you see -- kind of bounce back and forth here but Tiger Woods out of this media blitz has been funny he was on the late show last I would Jimmy Fallon. Even Rory Mac is awkward the other promoting new golf on their voting new golf clubs but they asked him a question that sit down that we -- -- sound -- and they ask the question you know how. Who's the next Tiger Woods basically was a question -- -- -- -- now from Nike it was like in charge of their golf department she symbol thankfully. We still have Tiger Woods he's got a lot of records still -- he's still attendees that the top his game it was it was pretty funny but -- -- golf needs to be -- going -- this weekend. I -- Texas says I can't go to tournament I'm forced to deliver dirt mail on Saturday. I would go to that sort of -- but I ran out of checks so you fix my -- trying to carry come on man you're better than -- dirt when you say checks in the mail you actually need it if it usually inferred that integrity when you tell a woman. That you're out somewhere that you're actually. Out somewhere. Yeah of course it's our integrity the -- My wife and I and a -- says I've yet to stream meeting on demand we studied dvds in the mail from Netflix. Never thought I would talk about Netflix it was antiquated it's. Jokes on me if I'm getting in movies hitting the mail -- You seeing that with a preview of towel Alex proper worked hard on this it's pretty funny all played free next year is -- -- with sports and Dan towards third and sprayed his served up by buffalo wild -- on ESPN's Sports Radio 1080 of program. I think you're seeing what's out there and I don't think he gets any better when you've been out there when -- whenever you left the apartment -- went out on four different days the three girls and and I guy Angel I don't I don't know what his intentions were red -- it's finally had a great conversation users Bloomberg ran. -- disgusted check the issue with one seasons like guard would confirm that at this station -- Dirt and swagger check writers have been great company man that's all I -- -- is needed somebody around the building to give me the thumbs up and say you know it dirtier -- -- my book and Jason -- -- did that and did enjoys lags in a -- is he now if you don't have a lot of enough money your cash. Think you're right -- -- you get voted for a couple days is herself there there's no buffer zone and you pay -- -- you better at that money in your cap that's exactly right so are blocked from 132. For the next couple of weeks is going to be spent previewing college football in the NFL also every day. At 130 and 140 file will be previewing. As NT so in about that only ten minutes from now we'll take a look at the jets were in the AFC east. Alexander property you heard last he first thought property intern for us and it did he was a funny guy right away we had good chemistry with him he's just a funny guy. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- And he heard some of these commercials because guys have got a great one I'd like to do it for cal Berkeley. Here is Alexander Crawford preview of Calbert. It's this is cal bears cornerback Jerry god fearful are pretty basic products belong and people -- Located right -- do memorial stadium. Lovely campus Calvert city. Distillers having told me he's still on Saturday news -- seeing expense. Sacramento mistaking him. That's I think they stand there with those people are gonna come to ask him. Also game I think that the best chance of winning. Yeah him Berlin last year -- Portland's daily 37 and is there any. You know as our last two and has a year ago and I think this could be. As she you know it's not -- There's now in its yeah I come by the sales for us. During or after the game. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- You -- or something and no -- -- Totally understand if you only -- generally I would -- For a few you know from my after the game it's a perfect place to take something out -- take your mind off of what he's just watch on the field. That type of -- it was perfect that. Six. Yeah. Mr. Big rock -- and gold shop I -- -- golf. And remember. Even. There might not be a lot of -- points. On the field this season then ask cal -- it's -- guarantee. We'll have a lot so I've always thought yeah. Well done via line allies -- -- -- unbelievable immediately that would throw me. Yeah. Great job -- doctor Robert great job is if your eight cal bear fan. And this coming up season and has since. We discuss that he hit it really need to bring in now -- -- every year here but I will say don't you regret generated Sanford you just -- -- -- -- -- -- is improbably good coach for. But and he said he is upbeat after the close scrimmage they had a couple of days ago he upbeat August 3 hole is different hope -- -- it's -- to. -- against northwestern. Any cities hitting good mood after they had a closed practice is irregular that -- -- yes that played each other in their -- -- change at all had a -- officers a crappy defense got a shot -- -- -- that thing either way ahead of inevitability it is -- to cal is a perfect case -- -- was not great down the stretch there's no doubt about it. But he kind of lost the team and possible bit of interest it's amazing how quickly a bill that it that quickly yes -- -- and -- masses that I figured all of a sudden you're worst in Colorado I was at that game where they Oregon State Beavers two years ago and a 93 season when -- blew out how do you start to finish. And -- gets right in -- Ted efforts face it it was her last when tempers last games yes he did just about to get fired just got to get fired and -- walked right up to him and like one of those paparazzi and he just like held this photo -- and examine photos as he won by Eaton and but you -- it is a big game that's exactly what it was but it is a case. Of you've got to take care of your coach is if you think they're the right guys that you know and you've got to invest in your talent in in the people that you believer good. Otherwise you find yourself any situation it's very great quake. Without the pac twelve is to go boom hit the bottom like how was right now and it takes a while to recover. And Jerry got an okay quarterback and he's a fine quarterback who's a freshman class -- you can't read too much and how he's -- -- be -- but his committee in April and they ran a lot of plays but they're not gonna be team that competes this year and in maybe not even for another couple of years. And again I can't tell you how freshening that is as a fan knowing what you had. And what's your face with now. I was just a couple of years ago I mean you look at all the talent that came through their Marshawn Lynch locally DeSean Jackson remember watching DeSean Jackson in college in -- -- you know everybody over the last camp for the years always talks about Reggie Bush -- -- -- impressive guys when you sound and he got a chance to see him play. I've ever watch into char Jackson that -- when given Coleman fumbled out of the end zone and organ loss of Dennis Dixon here. It was a great game DeSean Jackson was one of those guys he's Simon in person it was unbelievable. And -- to be that I'd tap that only a handful years ago 56 years ago and now you are where you are as a program. It really just shows how quickly could fall down and -- at -- with how strong the conference is at this point. Colorado was now better than new Utah's clearly better than you Arizona's better than you I mean you're in the clear cut bottom feeder in the conference. I'm not sure how long this thing's gonna take to turn around I'm not to sit here and act like I know anything about their personnel because I don't like it is spam I don't waste my time. Researching a one and eleven football team they should have been only twelve lesser the only game they want they should allow us that it Portland stayed on the shuttle loss to Portland Satan so. Dallas down on hard times ye -- of you feel bad form Jeff -- was a good guy from everything we've ran I'd never had a bad to say about dead Jeff -- But this year you got Sacramento state Crawford joked about the commercial yet Sacramento state week -- to deal -- -- when you're going only twelve against Duncan you're not gonna beat anybody else and it's at. -- -- -- and twelve team and that and that's not a great fan base to begin with. In your competing with everything they always are renovate the stadium -- -- and AM memorial stadium yet met with everything going on in the Stanford's not a great thing NBC either but there's so much in the bay to do not only need. An old sports wise but things to do without spending your money on sports they Italian the fact that stance hurt your arch rival the bay -- now this dominant BCS bowl program at that that makes her even more talent out of Colorado home thing in Colorado home and now. Now -- now they doesn't guarantee actual networking right Colorado for sure be on the -- -- know her out of cal they will lose by two touched the only intriguing game and I have all year is is when they play the ducks tried and I -- it's certainly nice stadium. That's it. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Cracked -- Sunday -- whatever happened a -- Ted for by the way is an assist in the NFL and -- -- and -- that up during the commercial break. The New York Jets is who we will preview next Michael Vick is a backup how Long Will that last. In no reach -- read our group with some Braxton Miller discussion at the top of the hour. As well you're listening to their tortured his break does break for the whole week. On 1080 defense. -- -- -- -- By buffalo wild. And ESPN's Sports Radio 1080. Okay. But every day 1450 we take a look at it -- from the AFC we've done the entire NFC is were just a couple weeks away from the football season getting under way hard knocks is tonight's what's our we're not done that for college for football in general football is next Thursday. So you went to the map on that nine days away it goes away 89 days -- the account next Thursday as today I always I'm I'm that guy that'll throw in a couple of days if I'm not sure about something and all active again eight or nine -- -- needed just give -- take a little market ballpark and I adolescents and and counts for something -- The New York Jets will be did you that we discussed today in the AFC east. And I don't know how that's going to work with the Michael Vick experiment as a back up. He's making much more money than geno Smith and much. Just as it was awful if again this same conversation with now. If your jets fan. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- By having a couple of big games already this season they are six and two at home late date any men and Ace of Base price of people last year they were either they're going to be a lot worse last year than -- turned out being. It got some weapons Eric -- -- there in the offseason but. The jets are a team that Rex Ryan has personality. Normally we -- we seven -- -- yourself. If your coach. There are certain coaching in certain personalities that just don't sit well Rex Ryan is a coach that does not -- well as you said dirt. As the he's not personally it's -- well as a head coach and always. I didn't look you know I remember when you -- you just mentioned hard -- that's gonna be on tonight with the falcons I remember when the jets run hard -- and -- really do like Rex Ryan I love his personality and I love the I loved it off cuff comments I -- the cuss words I love Rex Ryan had to -- he's a great coach but. The question has always been about him -- -- head coach -- defense a coordinator or is the head coach because he's he's proven his worth as a defensive coordinator. Whether it was with -- in his past eight years when he was the coordinator or went with the jets when they have a solid defense when he got there and let him back to back AFC championship game and that's impressive to do that that's hard to do. So I do believe that guy has some credence in the NFL obviously as a as a coach but. -- head coach I'm not sure Gina Smith does not help his cause at all and that's why it's almost unfair to meet look at Rex Ryan and say hey your terrible -- she gets fired after the season. Because a lot of people look at this year and say this is it means nobody expected him to be brought back after the last two seasons. They continue to do so it's legal eight -- seven and nine again this year how do you continue to tell your fan base say this is a guy we wanna have BR you know run our -- this is a guy everyone has their head coach. If you continue to not make the playoffs year after year it's unfair because he does that does that that he is that bad Michael Vick should be the starter on this football team. Geno Smith -- just I called it when he was at West Virginia I don't humble -- a lot but when he was everybody was talking about him and Heisman conversation. I just didn't see he was in an offense that threw the ball fifty sometimes a game you know that much arm strength that it like is and I just I didn't like him as a quarterback at the next level he proved me right last year now. Maybe he makes a huge strides from year one year to maybe he makes that big of a development. I just don't see it come in there'd been some comments from guys -- Mike Vick came out earlier this pre season and said. He's gonna be a top ten quarterback at some point I just I don't see it at all Mike Vick should be the starter on this TV -- Eric Decker as you mentioned. Yet Chris Johnson who knows exactly what you need to get out of him. This is a football team and has the talent to win 89 games they do defensively I like him they lose Antonio Cromartie but he's getting up there and -- Eric -- Chris Johnson near good enough weapons work if Mike Vick finds some semblance not be MVP ask Mike -- that we seen in the past but. If he can find some semblance of -- winning quarterback that we CD showed flashes of Philadelphia the last couple years. This is a team that can win nine games Odyssey in my opinion contend for a wild card spot. But if you continue to wanna develop geno Smith got to decide which route you -- don't you wanna develop geno Smith. Happened struggle have a throw a lot of picks you're gonna win 56 football games. Are you wanna go with a veteran Mike Vickers knows what he's doing it could probably lead -- to a sample went to keep you contention in -- -- car. I'm gonna ask you is this text in the -- were just doing a test I might answer that question the pats have the ability the jets have the authority like that I don't know that as Rex Ryan -- -- the foot -- is that something that'll always be with him you think he's escape him pretty well -- -- moved -- -- O'Brien as -- as last majestic sight of that court records and -- it is it is really is amazingly I. And it does go back to what you played under the the development or a -- or a sure thing and Michael Vick has handled that situation. Very very well. For me back a parole and he said he didn't want in Philly too they did an -- Any he's probably very very fortunate and thankful that he's got a job he's got money to pay his bills to the is make -- around fort five million this year which -- much more than Gina Smith is making it. It is all goes back to if you don't think -- -- watch this graphic last night of the Cleveland Browns were they how many quarterbacks they went through many general managers they went through an -- head coaches they've gone through. And I -- the jets have had. Their struggles at the quarterback position either know a guy is going to be a good NFL quarterback or you don't they're very few exceptions have guys that come -- -- back. There I don't know about that guy yeah let's develop him and see what he could do because DR Smith was terrible last year and there's. And I heard two -- about this yesterday on prime time where on the way home. About how pocket presence in this is not hard for football fans to look at a quarterback played -- -- down go yes that's a guy that that. As it. Ordered there's a guy that that doesn't and there's no way to get together the curious case that you'll be joining in itself. Demands others think he's got any of the tools to be great in -- quarterback now based on how he's played in the precincts and everybody is so fascinated to watch that exactly why because you can. You wonder there's the potential there to be able to have developed Johnny man's -- into an NFL quarterback because he's still rock. Geno Smith is similar you didn't really run a pro style offense. Yet at West Virginia at all as a he's got a lot of learning to deal he's got a lot of growth available there. I just don't see when I looked at him some viewers in the next couple of years trying to develop him. A year you're wasting your time you -- You are and I completely agree with that in and I bet most jets fans are probably agreement that -- how badly he played last year. It's very hard look at Gina Smith and -- -- it was a flash your flash or this guy's gonna turn around and equipped to three years you know in a 23 year span. And a lot of people look at the quarterback position and say your second years probably the hardest your ball because defense is. They got a year's worth -- -- Sam Bradford that -- -- -- they know exactly what -- gonna do they know what you like to do in certain situations when you're under pressure where do you throw the football and certain defense coverages where do you wanna go at the football they know everything about geno Smith now it's only getting harder from here on out. That's right you can't find any semblance of a spark in your rookie season in command and be an impact clear we saw that with Russell Wilson we -- with count -- -- -- Andrew Luck you answered all these young quarterbacks RG three his rookie year. This album have gone down year when -- two RG -- a great example that -- defense figured out. If you can't come -- have any success as a rookie it's very hard for me looking UNC you're gonna be a long term answer quarterback. And we got this tax about Rex right with which it but I do tend to agree with somebody said. He almost brought the jets -- -- went with that Sanchez's escort -- they have Russell Wilson went to symbols we see Pete Carroll is a great coach but without a quarterback you aren't going to win and win at all. I don't necessarily agree that if they have Russell Wilson it would suitable I'm not sure I would go that far to say that because they're not as talented run game defensively is to Seattle Seahawks were last year. But I will say this a lot of coaches are made by their quarterbacks we we do this all the time and you'll see our -- -- -- -- but look at Pete Carroll's tenure before he got Russell Wilson. They have a seven and I play up front where they beat the saints did you know at a hockey you wanna play -- game. But imagine if you -- -- did even with but imagine if it if Russell Wilson was taken. Before you that you let me explain that you have Matt Flynn as your starting quarterback what's the conversation about Pete Carroll was the conversation about the Seattle Seahawks you're looking at Pete Carroll at this point probably. Failure by not be the right word but as a guy who -- -- delivered to the high peace he's got -- pretty medium and NFC wild -- appearance. But that's about it you're not when in a suitable so I do agree with a semblance of that tax and saying look. You'd need a quarterback to win he doesn't have a quarterback he's never had a quarterback -- to -- to back to back AFC championship games with a Mark Sanchez. It kind of shows you that you are pretty good head coach but the problem now is he doesn't have the running game he doesn't have a defense city happened so. Everything is decreased around him in the back of the fact that geno Smith is at worst quarterback Mark Sanchez is just back comedy. -- -- Offense aren't I gave the dolphins this year and everything that they have -- the jets this year what's team needs he's gonna do better -- Mike -- my quarterback hectic the jets I think I would yet. And I don't think it's even -- -- -- like that they jets and honestly I feel like they have talent to go -- seven if if Mike Vick can say healthy if he's the starting quarterback in if he can find some semblance of what he had success with the Philadelphia. They created and put limits -- responses to announcement does not the answer is not an NFL quarterback now he's not and that's and. -- C because it here's a situation that you created if you're a jets fan it is geno Smith struggles especially New York. For the first two or three weeks and they say they just go one into one and three. That they're gonna be calling for Michael Vick in my hands to lump in my regulated that's. Could you start one in three could be too -- you're you know you're not gonna win the division the pats are gonna win the division but one last what I -- to make about mark Sanchez's line or treaty with the jets he's on Philadelphia you can trade him now but. He's at a guy we talked about -- -- earlier in the game Mark Sanchez and his mannerisms off the field they did a man they did all the pictures of it would chicks -- him do in this. What what label we talk about label. I've fumbles probably ultimate duck flies like fumble there's no excuses for Obama make them my Twitter page -- that's a fantastic picture that was a fantastic land that was one of the most legendary play is an NFL history but. We -- better played in but fumble there isn't one bathtubs at the guy's bubble -- bottom -- on offensive lineman was scooped and scored for attached you can't copy. We we we get these labels on quarterbacks all the time Mark Sanchez what was his label he was a California -- and care that much didn't study the -- -- put the -- men and now he failed that makes him such an easy scapegoat and that's my fear for joining -- well. I'm with you their dirt I see them fighting for probably that third place spot in the AFC east if they put a net Michael Vick I liked him as a wildcard team. And team that can compete and win as you said. Nine games a big time blow to a national championship contender in college football we'll tell you and explain next -- break this entire week. At -- -- fort burdens break here on 1080 to.
