And she showed -- he said look -- -- a -- -- little lady is cowboys fan and little late. And people don't know this like would never -- out places were observing -- for stories that we can tell on the burden and she was so dedicated. She brought three there was an -- he thought all I'd never been on welfare. Three fancy football magazines. It cosmopolitan and Casey got bored yes a ruler yes I calculate -- -- that was my favorite genachowski a couple of hands yet if she had all of her homework done don't forget the notebook and and I answer that looks awesome. Did you bring laptop. And Jesus Christ your spirit there was there was a brief moment of panic better. Where was because we talked about it openly show yesterday cheated if it even crossed her mind and she -- in the show yesterday that. We -- -- -- that you don't screw this up is you can get your financial saying they aren't -- presenting the assistant to do that drafted you screw this up your out of a job we going to be out of a job civil we -- we drop the laptop like they have what comes walking up to me he says that. If she doesn't have. Top. Wanted to do your kids. -- very prepared to -- -- Sheila we had two females yesterday. She was one of them and one of my draft table on the what my draft table was dedicated as she can't get past Auburn a boyfriend came together -- use -- we're talking sports but. Break decides to play a joke eight. Cruel cruel joke on this for a woman who is who is worried about her job who showed up for a while since right next to me sitting right next to you and you played one of the most cruel -- have ever seen in the history as the ball. She she mr. -- so auto picked four and an auto -- Ben Tate. And she was so onerous about Jay and Tate was and I go through who do you get NGOs. And and I go you -- -- eight and I was like. It and I say I hate to tell you is that he has just retired yesterday he's a veteran and he just threw two retired. She was. Plus I saw that. Don't eat out for like fifteen minutes straight he couldn't believe that's who are opening she was like my boss is gonna kill me was my fourth paid Joey Crawford walk around with a microphone enjoys in warehouses are things going -- I'm not getting distracted. Clear who's -- -- you can bet that not happen. Oscar admit it I felt bad but like when you have somebody like that they come with a calculator does something you don't need a calculator for. You feel like you can joke with them a little bit I resorted to class bully techniques man you've resorted back here for three years easy man I was amazed to learn. Seventy Bentley whenever he wants he was in the draft last night takes -- in slightly surprised to see isolated today in the united where troopers were troopers were to fight through this thing. Ultimate New Orleans last -- talent and the 6 AM -- -- -- ourselves on the way home one of our. -- that data centric think Buffalo Wild Wings and moral would brewing company for helping is that what that again if you didn't participate if your major you do so next year. That's going to be a lot of it was telethon this year and it'll be even bigger and better next -- there's a lot of -- today. To discuss especially college football a couple stories at the NFL. That is broken here in the last fifteen or twenty minutes or so Adrian Peterson. Which will discuss here any second hats and contact -- Jerry Jones could be considering tampering but. The NFL has issued a memo to all of their owners and said severe penalties. Have been now in stated for domestic violence of those harsh measures. Roger Goodell basically said he messed up he admitted to messing up his quote I didn't get right. On re right he finally admitted. That they messed up on this on this case and in the punishment of this of the new punishment is going to be very first time offender it's a six game suspension. And without pay. And it after that a second offense will be banned for life and the violence involving a weapon choking repeated striking. Or when the act is committed against a pregnant woman or in the presence of a child. That is how they're defining. I'm I'm glad they came out in me to stay in this is the conversation for about 23 weeks now since Ray -- sponsoring came down. A lot of people outraged that you get more you get less games for domestic violence than you do -- drug testing positive for something. But that was that was CBA -- for the fact the NFL recognized. How much -- negative backlash exact all this is this is a reactionary move -- -- is a valley is and the end of -- -- nothing to do with them. Having a guilty conscience or having a moral or saying. Our man I just I feel terrible two games and up he heard the echo we heard the noise from fans from local radio stations nationally on ESPN and ESPN radio. You hear that backlash and what do you do you have to react because right now the NFL. As excited as we are to watch those games and excited as we -- CR teams play. Right now it's probably having its worst -- are off seizing going into -- season. That it's arguably ever have when you're looking at all the headlines and have come out everything is negative tampering domestic violence. Do you wise I mean there is nothing positive that is emerge from this offseason. You -- it's a Reggie Dallas guys responsible for protecting shield protecting league keeping owners and players happy. You've got to react and he reacted this is a great answer to that reaction six games and in a lifetime ban. By adding a lot you look at that baseball and they wind based labs stands on the PE EL EC should be -- on a second offense so to me it's just reactionary but it is a great reactionary move. By Roger Goodell in the NFL the second time in your Don. That's gonna Cindy very strong message to players GMs coaches anybody else involved domestic violence -- And we had this conversation when the original ruling came down and everybody uses the cliche all the time you -- you learn more from Los and he you'll win and that's always set for this in the NFL -- that -- they screwed up what Ray Rice says both did you mention. Roger -- cannot say -- we screwed up we messed up went up it should have been more than a two game suspension -- see the backlash like you said straight from the fans. And then you even see that backlash now creep into the ranks of the players which is never a good thing if you ratchet down the leak. But at least they -- this is great this is great news for the NFL they have a series image problem right now. Whether or not it's really sunk into the most of football fans are not quite sure but it will get there you have if you continue to have off seasons. Like the NFL is that this offseason is just gonna get worse and worse and worse about the drug arrests albeit. The PED suspensions the domestic violence issues with certain players great parties in domestic violence that we didn't even focus on this offseason. Because a Ray Rice the NFL needed to get out in front of this they learned their lesson in scoring up from Ray Rice. And to be up -- like most most football fans will be okay with his weaker summed up on the FaceBook page I'm curious to read. The responses to that but I'm not quite sure where the backlash would come from -- six gave her first suspension. And a lifetime ban free phrase second offense that to me is pretty severe and and I love of the NFL went that length and it's a good move. For Roger Goodell hears you're gonna do on the showed they were gonna preview a lot of college football some big time games tonight a lot of teams for a Thursday and I really like what college football is doing. Kind of breaking us up into a Thursday Saturday obviously going to be some gains Friday but the big -- being Thursday and Saturday for opening weekend. Really enjoy that's we'll discuss that at the bottom of the hour to a couple more previews we've got our -- state commercial today we'll do our organ duck commercial. Tomorrow and wait till you hear what the NFL is trying to do to help kids learn mess in school that story for you at 115. We'll start up next though with Adrian Peterson and Jerry Jones having a conversation. About getting Peterson. To the cowboys that is next you're listening to the airport there is break served up by B does not in eighty the fan. -- mean again these. Rose in residents and as you know boom. -- and I. Very in the home no wow. This is college kicked off and John Danforth -- sprained. Rusty by Ron Tonkin dives on ESPN's Sports Radio Jay Nady both Israel not. Did do you notice. -- bug gets under way today actually does. Two hours 45 minutes from now it's not that long so we've got the job -- always watch it. Yet they feel that spot -- got in today we we wanted to have a meeting to talk about last night's event didn't didn't think of ways to make it even better even dating bigger for next -- end and we were hoping for a pre show meeting. In and we get the email says three to 330s I can take what he's got a TV is office saying come on me I don't golf ball a lot -- I don't want my. I don't know the meeting's going to be in his -- game where there's going to be quite a few people can we call him -- thing I like cafe. I think we tell our -- -- you wanna call me having to his face or over the year over the air. That is that's our that's our way column that they have to call -- to his face and be -- you react to what it is funny because he has the last name of the city in audio here -- sometimes look -- use different cities is his last man Jeff Tallahassee Sacramento Sacramento via cracks me up. On that they noted that Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson told the Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones. In a June telephone call that you would like to play for the cowboys at the end of his tenure. With the vikings is according outside the lines report. And Jerry Jones responds it while I understand Adrian I'd like Datsyuk. I loved your story I love your daddy's story that's the most. Eight using the word data that sounds the most since these salaries go grass from the old white guys in the black running back to a little -- added you're daddy Adrian you noted -- -- -- -- Avoid irrespective of what you've been about. I've I've been a fan of -- the vikings issued a statement that said this quote or focus on 2014 season we've consistently communicated this. Adrian is an integral part of our vikings organization. Adrian Peterson had to release a statement is like ten minutes ago. So this is a casual conversation between NFL colleagues. And -- I don't know ever indicated. I want to delete the vikings and I've always said I understand the NFL as a business but that I would love your tires a viking. And I would not wanna play for somebody that calls me daddy I added that part but. Adrian Peterson says like it's say it's. It was as a casual conversation with the AFL doesn't take lightly to casual conversations is they find Pete Carroll for talking to his own team for 300000 dollars but. I don't blame Adrian Peterson for reaching out to the cowboys here there are strict policies in place. I have that -- and that's not ideal timing for either one of these franchises. It's not ideal timing at all you're you're going into the start this season Minnesota's a franchise that you look at it they're they're gonna have a tough time deal making a playoff push in the NFC north this year in the cowboys. We on not -- they can be year in year out we talked to some cowboy fans last night they know what's -- is probably another 88 season that's exactly. But they put out the last couple years it's your Adrian Peterson. I'm with the input I don't blame you whatsoever you need to be smarter than this I mean isn't this what agents -- four pin agents sent a text is somebody in the -- organization. It's SA major what's -- got what he wants to -- -- Dallas was put us in our estimates hampering them but I'm sure you can find ways around and there would there's ways you can you know keep that under under record and on -- people find out the actually reaching out. -- agent do what you reach -- says he wants to play in Dallas -- figures have not figure out a trade no sign long -- he's all for being in Dallas. Because it's got to be smarter than this but he's one of those guys a lot like Stephen Jackson before he got out of Saint Louis. I feel that I feel bad for running backs and take that where it's air -- patent Peterson in my mind's -- Freddie Mac in the NFL what he did two years ago. Over 2000 yards coming -- the ACL surgery was just unbelievable that season was awesome to watch. He led them basically single handedly to the playoffs in good gamble that first round -- Joseph Webb was quarterback. That guy needs a chance to win before his career is over we need to see now is easily steal the money -- saved thousands of plays but I'm just in Minnesota eight -- Minnesota's not the place either they have no chance the NFC north Dublin whatsoever reach now look. We've seen before when when superstar athlete all star players you describe only in the city they've been in for a while their loyalty kind of goes out the window and there's there's there's ways to go about doing it in the right way like with the Minnesota Timberwolves and and Kevin Love -- cavaliers straight. That thing was a rumor it was brewing LeBron James supposedly sent a phone call to Kevin Love. Which he didn't hear anything until just the rumor started rumbling between organizations organizations contacted each other. Most of the time and superstars are trying to get out you have a lot of tampering going on I really do believe that but I also believe you have superstars they go directly to their own teams and say look. I had given you -- money years can we do something to try to help myself out I don't mean it is it's like Kevin Garnett the best example this with the Minnesota Terrmel. When he got traded from Boston he had reached his breaking point he'd -- into -- wasted too many years with the T wolves they were gonna get it done he wanted to win arraigned. I can guarantee you went to the organization. They started conversations with the Boston Celtics who really wanted to win game means got there is the GM. You had Doc Rivers and Paul Pierce they needed pieces Kevin Garnett boom it works their ways to go about doing this the right way. And coming out and calling Jerry Jones and it's unfortunate there was a media member they're doing a story that's as bad timing otherwise we never know about this conversation. But it is funny that he got caught doing this. Because ftp are so right for -- Airways were talking about the story he did in -- would -- last year and they flat out did you ever envision yourself playing for another organization. And he had said you know what I'd be a fool to say I haven't I think about playing at home all the time he's from Texas and he even referenced the Dallas Cowboys playing back home would be great that's what he said so you have -- on record that the guy clearly isn't satisfied Minnesota. He would love to go back home and -- have that start his helmet. The fact that these -- I'm wondering what's gonna happen now what's the follow up investigation. Because both sides are really could do it -- with this the NFL hates when the stuff comes out. Who's the athlete you feel the most sorry 455305. On the -- twin attacks on throughout the history of their career. Adrian Peterson is not quite there yet they've played NFC championship game. And he's easily had the personal accolades but he is an -- at 29 years old that is slowly climbing that list for me of guys ice. I genuinely feel sorry when you look at. But the one time he got a quarterback the one time the one season that he had a legitimate quarterback on his team and a Brett Favre threw to -- the NFC championship game at that one year they got there they were basically a field goal away from the one of the Super Bowl. It shows how good they can be with a quarter. He's in the fourth year of his seven year deal hundred million dollars is gonna -- -- eleven million this fall. To play for the Minnesota Vikings but he did have conversations with Jerry Jones and you get exactly that's as good agents or fourth that's why you have -- you can work back channels and then deny it. So now I was my eight and I and have anything to do it that and that's why they exist in the first place and all types of industries. Hey it doesn't matter what terrain. That's that's why you have mediums as well you have go betweens and existing college sports exist all over the place. But I I deuces I -- Sanders has got to be up. There for sure very sanitary standards is number one's got a number one yeah I mean you're timeout arguably the best running back double time then headed seems to. Detroit franchise he's I was really feel sorry for these athletes is an injury to reach a point we -- stop signing contracts in just leave I mean because after sermon at time giving marijuana loyalty right. And that's that's a double -- certainly is why why we artists in the and that's what sucks is when athletes are loyal we ridicule and criticize them but when they are we we have simply fly is it's hard for me to have some of these -- because they have the option to leave they leave. And -- -- we seen in Portland Clyde -- reached a point where look at my window's closing I can't win here anymore I -- go to Houston is tough to see things like that happen to me it was in the best you do you wish him the best athletes have that -- you can't -- and I just don't have a lot of sympathy for guys like -- Barry Sanders a Stephen Jackson comes to my mind yet to get on but even -- it's like -- -- had multiple opportunities where -- -- signing a contract contest of free agent market -- and even try to -- for a winner. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Your clear loyalties and never a two way street in sports teams are gonna be loyal to athletes and 90% of the time. I just I've got a point is listening to all the sob story that leads in watching these guys' careers deteriorate may never have an opportunity to play for a winner be productive. Who arrived Reese is like why should athletes be loyal to organizations when organizations are never loyal and athletes it's so -- like dad and I don't know if we'll ever get this way because it's actually a little different -- -- national scale that. Say Damian Miller plays his entire career as a for the -- -- or LaMarcus Aldridge gives everything he has -- Portland Trail Blazers never able to have success. Do we view that is sympathetic towards that. Or is that just kind of the way -- organization works it's it's a 5050 and a fresh. They didn't win the day when I get that I got calls that they got close a few different times kind of validation of their career this event and you look at Dan Marino and a lot of people take him out of the best QB of all time debate because he doesn't have that read I -- -- I've -- -- -- -- for in Minnesota for a long time. And I said why don't trade him I mean at this point to Minnesota I know that might sound outlandish to some people but he's got three years left on is wearing -- Jersey -- -- -- exactly is and that is the -- -- provides the seasonal Teddy -- PN's apple what's Minnesota best case scenario what -- days this year 79 and you know best -- 79 what are they gonna be next year. Is Teddy Bridgewater gonna click that -- turn you into a winner no ice icing it -- he gets in draft picks -- need to start that process of rebuilding. Athletes you have the most sympathy for 55305. On the beavers into an attack signed Jerry Jones and Adrian Peterson had a little bit of a conversation in the -- season. There could be tampering charges that emerge. From this college football is -- that would take a look at some of the big games get you ready for here is -- with sports and then towards third and -- is served up by Buffalo Wild Wings on ESPN's Sports Radio 1080 elsewhere and. And drove around all day there's not a single job in this town there's nothing not a exist yet. Lets you wanna work forty hours a week. Here. We'll go to the store. OK just get to bare essentials the -- of our bill. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- You do and it. Did Kelly yeah. This is really the Boise State -- up. -- Portland Oregon state police or instincts is catchy. This is a bad fights on this night. -- -- I have no doubt there's no way to song ever get stuck in your enjoyed it does a great story about it is Jersey says its first week on campus in Boise be shut out in the 55 bucks and. Is checking account -- hobbies -- used jerseys probably the first Fiesta Bowl right yeah that would over Oklahoma he's. The bookstore there fifty bucks he -- got fifty bucks he -- -- being used to let things I did. That's not a sure -- it's not -- of those like cheap plastic one that is a legit team orders that the marks in the shoulder pads out who wore that Jersey not a clue -- but -- -- battle imitative play that much. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- It says WA EC on his jurors and act and I think it's a conference affiliation of some sort Muster. Here are tonight's game is Boise State does play Ole miss. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- to see some full on my TI hate being that guy that's over excited about a sport in the return and it. But I really can't say it's been able Lyles he's been able to watch some good football South Carolina and -- -- gonna give that to us tonight. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I did some homework on this and I hope you guys appreciate the -- that they did. Teams that lose their opening game only have -- 6% chance. Of finishing in the top twenty -- when the season is over we're just steal that -- where did that -- and I know you can do that day you know man that's serious hard to zero weight they'd lose their opening game and it did teams that lose their opening game -- -- -- this whole whole. This accident you know this is this year it exits what do you mean there's no way -- -- homework last -- are back to the start went through every team that's ever played college football looks -- -- it must conquer his five week fifteen years where they finish at the end of the season that's dedication right -- read an article not yet -- -- USA today and I copied and pasted. And put his -- wanted to -- here's John notes say fellas look what I found -- don't lose your first game. Yeah that's a news alerts -- good loser -- leisure opening game in and come back -- channel eleven -- screwed that's exactly right. South Carolina though and Texas -- and and people wanna know how. -- same name is going to look without Johnny -- self and some of the things that go under rated about text -- him. Is the united talent they had around -- -- I was a great college player. But he had two top five picks in the NFL draft yet Mike Evans the wide receiver he had a lot of touting his defense let him down a lot. But without without him making plays this year and it takes is -- -- starts up to 21 -- doesn't good recruiting classes. I'm what you guys -- the over under on this is scoring wise is sixteen -- half and the line right now with South Carolina and eleven point three. I'd probably take South Carolina Maryland you admit maybe not -- made -- -- -- but you know texting and starting on quarterback could not very much experience but he -- mention they have great recruiting classes I expect an a hole -- tough for a while some as a good coach he is he's a great coach a great -- Houston great -- now in Texas say they have -- but I ultimately eleven points about a -- and on this -- take South Carolina her. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- This mambo number five.

Sense -- also -- I play against that does not Leo it's six percentage gamble you said hey I really do appreciate my homework and Dan merchant USA today in that presidents don't print -- and we had and on yes Massa ended his friend of the show and someone came up that's that. Memorable college football openers. Tough defeat this one and I forgot about so maybe it's not that have to be. Let Garret blunt punching Boise -- Chris how from Boise State Byron Byron Harris acres out I was awesome I love you legend and knowing him and all doing. I had classes with them hung out a little bit but was he -- animal brownies that she pretty cool guy and videos he's not I don't get knocked out tonight thanks very quick story if you think both -- it and after that game. I have close friend of mine who played football for Boise State Branagh does not able -- if I got settled -- -- Anyways and go to this house party right. Celebrating the big win over the -- second in a row. Two years in a row and he's got a -- -- I'm the only and the only one of age at this house party. So mean Byron how to go to the gas station on the and I about a man thirty pack of beer why. Well very -- what kind of beer things keystone as -- used to really get the story is a great story Dave Bush that are playing Gloria center does a fantastic story noted the other guy it was he can trust. No I don't. Think you have anything that wasn't -- in the -- -- -- kind of fell over the Alcoa clocked him in the job that's right it was a job on. So in writing a story correctly you. Lots. Iron out beer when he was not a neat correct -- it's me check out write -- direct data that exists taxi at the tickets to see eager to -- -- that was four years ago and I always quick that you're going to be the seven year window but -- and -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- drink responsibly. Peyton Manning is going to be fine for. His time seeing it in the game against the Houston Texans. The amount is undisclosed but a one at a school that exceeds 8250. Dollars they just announced that's how much he's going to be fine. -- -- seems insignificant. And it's what's the point why would you find -- mini 200 dollars yeah I don't. They understand that whatsoever I -- I did enjoy watching it watching the watching him go up to swearing during kind of get in his face a little bit. He had some funny comments that we've played some after the show after he'd -- he can't talk to reporters and asked what was his response that he said -- hey good to see to see you later in the season. I don't understand why you'd ever want to take up Peyton Manning fighting image seems a little juvenile but neither do we really need to slap -- -- will go after all the guy has done for the NFL always done for the game winning. All our whole couple thousand dollar rise given Peyton Manning of the cats are -- we created a man hey and thanks for all those funny commercials we're not gonna disappoint you like everybody else. You can just do whatever you want you -- -- thing. That's really where saying we're taking an eight iron right that's triangle I got to -- and it crested view is this just an eleven day best Monday he's ever -- he's happy to pay that -- -- Collect the female and you at least got to find him something he did do something that was wrong and he was in the wrong on the situation. Finding guys get a couple bucks from I think -- Manning does this year obviously record setting year last year he's how many expert -- years -- yes last. And how he doesn't I love we look at Peyton Manning every. Season -- like the last 23 years especially after the neck problems DNA Indianapolis we don't know how how solid he was going to be in Denver and if he's gonna be able -- to play long term and India's durable as as he has been. He's one of those guys reminds me it's kind of Stamford analogy here -- we look at Stanford every year in sales this is the year number Jim Harbaugh Nomar Angela this is the year's Stanford goes down. And it may find a way back into a BCS game I feel like we've done that the last two years of Peyton Manning where we say let the guys 3839 years old there's no way he continues the same out of production. And you're in your rowdy. But he didn't dig himself a little bit of a hole last year with how well he played because now people -- expect a similar level of performance this season. See at some point there has to be a drop off I know people keep saying this about him after the -- but it's gonna come maybe it's not this year maybe it is next year. Believe Peyton Manning at some point it's gonna happen whether to hit something and I'm not gonna be surprise I hope it doesn't happen as -- huge -- -- you get the ball so quickly does take does he does but at some point you're gonna have me I mean it's almost impossible throughout a whole season without it he did a good job last year I'm sure is a lot more aware of his neck maybe he feels a little more confident. Doesn't get rid of the ball. As fast as he is he did last year I believe it's a little bit -- question mark the Broncos are in position to get right back where they were to the Super Bowl potentially face in you know one of the dynasty teams. But you look at it and it's a question -- he does take guided. Willie Willie came little -- give -- have to retire I hope we don't see that you never wanna see one of the -- go out that way. But is a concern AMP Manning -- a little concerned about going into the year to the. Find equivalents seat is if you made safety thousand dollars it'll be like somebody finding new 22 dollars 22 dollars two dollars that's. But -- -- -- we can't find a Manning's regular Canada and I'd ask China Indy 500 dollars is the equivalent of somebody making 50000. Being find 22 dollars out those out of -- -- that money will go to charity you're right -- Reagan that. This year for the Denver Broncos -- And people people know the Seahawks dominated game last year but it's still. And that does does it affect people's opinion or outlook of the propositions. And it was a header in off season to this that's true they didn't get -- and if there was any other team. We would be saying we would have been much harsher in the criticism of that team. Then we were in the CR for so good in the -- ruled against the tax credit that there was nothing the Broncos could have done there. It was just it was a beating from start to finish but they do escape criticism especially the offseason where were -- protecting them right back into the Super Bowl this year. And look I'm I'm sure there's a fire some people up and I don't mean owed to upset anybody but I look at that game and I use the word -- -- I do -- Seattle was the better team there is zero doubt about that they were the most dominant team of football last year that defense is on the best defense is. That we've ever seen in the history of the game and I'm sorry you play that game ten times does that say Malcolm happen. I'm not saying the Broncos win attending series against the Seattle Seahawks. But you're not gonna go out win every game by thirty employees in -- dominate from start to finish. That thing was screwed from the opening snap the opening snap it was a Super Bowl gig gave blouses tuneup that can and they didn't have a chance from there on out they were they were caught off guard. The wide receivers -- know what to do they got out man got out physical in the secondary it's a big reason for the new rules this year in the you look at the additions they made it kind of dress a lot of those these that they have -- Sanders. They needed another weapon and that's why people are still look at -- Denver and saint. They got a -- -- DeMarcus Ware from Dallas came into play defense event Aqib -- came into play defense back TJ -- former -- -- from Cleveland so they've made some big time additions last year. And I'm sorry when you look at the AFC it was better than them idiocy on paper now whatever pans out it doesn't always pan out how does on paper last year was one of those few examples where people -- before the season. As a hate Denver Seattle that's the likely Super Bowl matchup and it just happened happened that way. Denver is once again the best team on paper going into the season doesn't mean they're a lock to make it but they're clearly the best team in the AFC yet so it -- Always fun about is when you have these conversations about teams that you're evaluating is out that's a lot they're gonna those who broke his I think most people feel that way about Denver and on pay rewrite -- they look like the lock in the -- -- But let's not forget about New England -- it feels like we have these seasons were New England is the either the favorite or they're kind of the teams they kind of waiting in the water -- they -- a crappy division the AFC east. But has brought in look this is the biggest if for the NFL if gronkowski stays healthy and if people forget how dominant of a player he we also. Out to him yesterday right I did -- Atlanta. I had had Jimmy Graham and around here aren't I I -- a lot looked like I say he's sorry I didn't number one Hialeah. If these days LTU that the New England who did they have last year and that AFC title game they really had no nobody I mean. When they were completely done so looking at New England if they're pieces can stay healthy he'll be OK you still trust Bill Belichick and Tom Brady collectively I know they're unhappy with the Logan Mankins trade. But going for in the NC I don't mean Denver's a -- I look at New England gronkowski asked to stay healthy and that's a viable option cum audience seat. Here's the broncos' schedule it's the Indianapolis Colts to starts. That home Kansas City home and then their rat Seattle and they host Arizona does not easy start. For the Denver Broncos and in Indianapolis that that might be the one team that I think could sneak up. And maybe give them -- -- really is the Indianapolis Colts I do. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- At me let's -- barring some of them patent it's he put our he wants quickly says do you think Denver is the Buffalo Bills in the air always make it to the big game would never know when it's and they did go a long way to go to get to that status. But Peyton Manning could be considered that quarterback previous another Super Bowl this year and can't win. That mean that in three in your career that's not -- don't want. -- and Jim Kelly -- -- Torres who are we in the morning hour in the business now -- you're counting rings are not counting the amount like they're not a single one in your Don it's 10123. How many. Yeah yeah I just I can get a sense it's I ridiculous shots I know it is it is I can't go as far as say that the Buffalo Bills I can't this this though is the year for Denver they're getting up there in age and even the guys he sat in the offseason to -- how many more good years -- DeMarcus -- he's been up there in his career so there's a lot of -- age on this roster this is kind of their. You know the MB put up or shut happier for Denver. It keeps getting worse for Steve's RTZ and -- USC they've got a -- running -- another player. Who is calling him out in the got some drama going on also -- on the Josh -- story. As that looks like it's almost finalized in what we know here's that is next our sport -- -- sports topics elicited in -- -- on -- the fan.
