Yo, yo, yo, What is up? What is up? What is up? Good morning.
Good morning. Good morning.
Call with Avery.
Sports Show is on the air.
The one The Onley.
Avery Lewis McDougall.
How you doing today? Wherever you are in the world where Monday's going well, Or maybe it's your Tuesday If you're far enough away from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, we got a lot to get.
Thio, we got some NFL talk on this show.
We gotta talk about the first woman to be named a general manager in major league baseball in the form of Kim Ning.
And also the reverse retro jerseys are finally here in the NHL.
There are some that I'm like.
There are some which are member of the pack.
You know, they're okay, not in my top five, but they're okay.
And then there are some that are just like, Yo, Chief called Chief is on the line and he's saying right now that ain't it.
So anyway, we'll start off with the NFL, and you know what we can.
We're getting through it somehow, Some way.
NFL getting through it. I know.
I'm still, you know, I'm still very cautious when it comes to Kovar 19 and how the league is moving.
But it is a good sign that they're getting through it somehow, without so far.
Things getting very, very, very, very, very catastrophic.
But still knock on wood, knock on all the way.
No more players catch coronavirus, but we'll see.
So anyways, Week 10.
And first of all, I got to say, Bill O Brien has to be punching the air right now.
Texas fans gotta be punching all off the air.
They have to be.
They have to be Oh, my goodness! And the Oh, my gosh, I don't know how you're not punching the air right now, the Texans fan as the Arizona Cardinals get a massive, massive win over the Buffalo Bills.
What? It came down to weigh color Murray touchdown pass to the 100 Hopkins with one second left on the clock for a come from behind win over Buffalo.
Remember the Texans trying away DeAndre Hopkins basically for a bag of Mike and ikes? AZ Cardinals 1 32 30 under Hopkins, who was covered in triple coverage and still made the game winning touchdown catch color.
Murray got that ball, where need to be with one of the MAWR perfect throws you will see in the game.
Remember last week I was seeing how that hold garbage about small quarterbacks? They can't play once again, callin Murray showed you.
That's a bunch of nonsense as the Cardinals moved to six and three and they're only tie on top of the NFC West.
Arizona is making things very interesting in that division right now, and the Colonels get into the postseason either as the NFC West champions or the wild card team.
Watch out, they're going to cause a lot of problems.
Colin Murray in that game 1 22 for 32 245 yards passing a touchdown, and they also had a rushing touchdown.
You had two rushing touchdowns in that ballgame, and Kenny and Drake, 16, carries 100 yards rushing and even Chase Edmunds eight yard carries 36 yards.
Right now, Arizona is firing on so many.
Right now, Arizona is a team that you've got to pay attention to.
You gotta watch a car when they're playing, that is a well oiled machine.
And there are doubts.
There were doubts that this could work with the young coach like or are younger coach like Cliff Kingsbury in his first NFL coaching gig and their doubts whether Kyler could make it all work playing pro football.
And should he have switched to baseball? She's gonna play baseball with the with the Oakland A's organization, but he's making the work.
Calamari is finding a way to get it done in Arizona in college.
Cliff Cliff Kingsbury offense right now, and there are fun team to watch in Arizona as right now, that division of between.
Right now you've got that battle between the L.
Rams and the Cardinals, so we'll see how things she got right? They're not division because it is a fun one toe watch you got in.
The Seahawks are still in there as another round with the Seahawks, and Russell Wilson took his 10th loss to the ST Louis L around franchise.
Wow, you know something about the Rams having Russell Wilson number something about the Rams franchise? They always find a way to get Russell Wilson as you've got this three way tie now on top of the NFC West at six and three and the 40 Niners.
I've been struggling, of course, No Garoppolo Nick Mullins is having a hard time in the in term starting quarterback role.
So you're seeing the 40 Niners falling off hard in that division.
But those routine's gonna have quite the battle going on stretch as we get, we get down to the nitty gritty off the NFL season.
Of course, the Packers got a 24 20 win over Jacksonville, a game in which you know what I am happy.
The Packers person that yes, Green Bay is on top of the sea right now.
Number one seed seven to.
But at the same time, that was a ball game in which you shouldn't be letting the Jaguars you are a one win team.
Take you to again this close, which you're battling Jacksonville and you're only winning them.
You only winning this game by four.
This should have not have been a 24 20 Green Bay win.
The Packers have their chances to blow this game open, and turnovers made this a far closer game.
Then it need to be you had the Packers losing fumbles.
You had interceptions on a bad, bad throws and credit to the Jaguars.
Credit where Credit's due.
They took advantage of those Green Bay turnovers and they kept this game close.
Didn't get the win, but they showed to the Packers and hey, you know what? Don't take.
Don't take Jacksonville lightly because, yes, they were when they were 1 17 in this ballgame.
But they almost beat you in this game and they were leading this game on the road.
Remember, this is Jacksonville on the road, let not by Garden issue but by Jake Lutton.
Jake Lutton, who had one touchdown pass, Um, when 18 for 35 James Robinson had a heck of a day rushing for the Jaguars.
He came in this ballgame 23 23 carries, 109 yards on the ground.
Jacksonville came to play.
There was no fear.
There was no really.
They came early and they punch of Packers right in the mouth early.
They did. You got to give them that.
They really came to play that ball game at Lambeau, but hey, in the end, Green Bay did wake up and get it done for the victory.
As you know, as Aaron Rodgers found his targets, the ones who have been with him for so much of this season.
He found Davante Adams eight receptions, uh, for almost 70 yards and a touchdown.
Marquez faultless candling.
Four catches, 149 yards a touchdown.
Marquez eight in that ballgame, one of his best games in the Packers uniforms.
Ah, 149 yards receiving on just four catches.
You know, those YAC yards? Those YAC yards were massive for him in that ballgame.
You know, you love to see yards after catch coming into play, you truly dio.
And then, of course, we gotta go other games.
We'll we'll touch him before we continue on our talking.
I gotta say, Hey, we got a lot of people here in the chat.
Princess, look, you here? FB Bill.
Thank you all for joining us.
Hey, you wanna help stream out? If you wanna donate of top of those who are watching on video again, push the green button there. Give me a hand.
I keep saying we're gonna have the podcast.
We will work on getting that.
They should be turned into a podcast format for you to enjoy on the road at your office at school.
But remember, listen to me with one year but in so you can listen to the teacher with the free air.
That's what I did in high school and in college to, you know, show I was paying attention.
But you know, a guy get in my zone and enjoy a little bit of music or a little bit of sports talk while I'm in school.
So that strategy right there, if you're you need to release stress during exam during an exam or during some homework, listen to we could call it a sports show while you work.
Proven just reliever.
It's proven anyways, back to the NFL, and wow, I got to say this much.
What was that Texans Browns game? What was that game? Well, who wants to try and break that down for me? Because it was ugly.
Ugly gave it ugly weather as Cleveland got a 10 7 win at home.
No, but I was a game in which Cleveland was leading in the third quarter. Three. Nothing.
Houston couldn't get anything going as the Texans fall to two and seven.
But even though it was ugly game, even though it was an ugly ballgame yo, the Cleveland Browns are six and three.
I repeat, the Cleveland Browns are three games over 500.
Yes, as much as you do have people criticizing the ways, what's going on behind the scenes that wow, guys like a Baker Mayfield play on? You might question Odell Beckham.
You might question what's going on there.
You cannot, in fact, in Cleveland is in line for the first playoff appearance since 2000 and two.
They find ways to win, and it's on.
You know what the jokes of the Brown is gonna have to self eventually? Because if the Browns make the postseason, what are you gonna say? Really, where the joke's gonna come in that division? Uh, they're They're tied in the division with Baltimore and, of course, Seattle in 19.
Pittsburgh leads the division at 90 and then the Bengals are trailing and struggling at 26 and one.
Speaking of the Bengals, please get Joe Burrow on offensive line.
Joe Burrow needs some help.
I'm watching Joe and he's back there running for his life.
You know he can ball.
We all know Joe Broken ball.
We will watch this dude go ham at L s U.
But he needs, um, offensive line so he doesn't get smashed into an orange color jelly.
He is a rookie that needs help.
He needs to keep that jersey clean somehow.
I don't want to see him turning the and I don't want to see Joe Burrow turned into social media.
When it comes, get exact.
I don't I really don't.
Joe Burrow needs offensive line right now.
I don't get why teams go in drafting young quarterbacks and not ensuring that they have some protection in front of them.
And outfront seven.
Cincinnati's is not where it needs to be to keep him upright.
Remember what earlier in the year, there trying put the blame on Joe for how he plays.
Now, that's your golden goose.
That is your golden goose.
Yes, there will be errors.
Yes, will be mistakes.
But he needs to be given the time to do what he can do best in the pocket.
So maybe some of you agree with me.
Some of you disagree. Please.
You have thoughts on it.
Comment on the sports cast.
A lot of chatter. View your thoughts.
We'll get you on Twitter at a V.
I just feel like Joe Burrow needs some help when it comes to you keeping that jersey clean out of here.
Not sure what that was.
Not sure what that was at all.
Not sure that was, anyways.
And also get into one final game here.
The Patriots Patriots are four and five therefore, and five everybody after getting a big home win over the Baltimore Ravens.
A rainy, rainy game at Gillette and the Patriots now one game back of 500.
If they go into Houston and I think they have a very good chance just hammering the Houston Texans, they'll be back in 500.
And the New England Patriots a to thumb d o A.
Are not back in the picture, are not back in a wild cards are now hunting for wild card spot because remember, you have, you know, have the expanded postseason.
You are now living in seven teams from each conference for the postseason.
So now if you're New England, you could be smelling number seven.
If you win next week against Houston to get to five and five, Uh, the Patriot, I guess they're not done yet.
They're not finished yet.
The Patriots of finding, you know it's not the same.
Patriots is not the dominant team, and you would see off the past two decades.
But giving the Patriots credit, They held Lamar Jackson and check.
They picked him off.
They forced turnovers.
They big in the game in which, yes, whether was a massive factor.
They stopped Baltimore drive on defense when they had to.
When you and the playbook you know what New England pulled tricks out of playbook.
What did they do? Jacoby Meyers.
The wide receiver.
Touchdown pass? They did.
You know, we said before, we have seen that before, from the from the Bill Bell Czech Patriots.
You want to get a spark? The wide receiver touchdown pass is a play we've seen time and time again and Count Newton this ballgame 13 for 17 passing 118 yards.
Touchdown pass didn't do a ton on the ground, but he did get a rushing touchdown on the ground.
Damian Harris, 8 22 carries, 121 yards.
Rex Burkhead had to receiving touchdowns.
It wasn't a pretty win, but it was a win nonetheless, as we England gets back in the playoff chase in the A F. C.
You know, people were out there looking at the Patriots thinking, Yes, finally, they're dead.
Finally, they're gonna finish the year at two and 14.
No, the jokes about Trevor Lawrence going to New England for now, I'm gonna be put to bed.
They're going to be put to bed, at least for the time being.
If the Patriots do continuous run out of the Patriots do end up being Houston, well, then look pay attention because that will be very, very interesting.
Anyway, we'll move on from football and baseball.
I mentioned on the top.
Kim Ning is now the first every woman to be named a job manager of a major league baseball team.
She's the second woman to be named GM in American pro sports history, the first coming back when Joanne Pollock was named GM of the Grand Fighters of Ottawa and the CFL in 1988.
So you know what she was? She's probably the most know.
She is the most overqualified person to get a first time GM gig.
She should have been a g m a decade ago.
Honestly, you look at the people who God GM jobs over her, who struggled who were less qualified.
Year in, year out.
She worked with the Yankees.
She was the Yankees assistant GM in the nineties when they won their three worlds when they won the World Series and nineties, she was around that team 96 at one titles, and then she worked with 98 championship team.
She's got rings.
She worked in baseball in the major league level for 30 years.
She worked in the commissioner's office for what? For a very long time.
And yet she would still get looked over.
She would still be the finalists for a GM job and not get it.
The fact it took until 2020 for to get that is just Yes, I'm glad Miami hired here.
It's history, but it shouldn't have taken this long.
It should not have.
Everybody is set.
She's talented, she's brilliant.
She's a hard worker.
See the winner and yet overlooked.
Overlooked, overlooked assistant.
Yeah, assistant GM of the Yankees and the Dodgers, her first gig and then in major baseball in 1990 with the charge of White Sox.
She was there for six years as the assistant director off baseball operations before going to the Yankees 98 then Dodgers, and they're working for a major league baseball.
All that experience.
And yet she was still passed over by other franchises.
She interviewed for the GM jobs in Seattle, San Diego, Anaheim and San Francisco and still didn't get the jobs issue.
The guys who have gotten that job a long time ago at least one of those jobs, and she's also the first Asian American woman to be a general manager in any sports league.
But I'm glad that Miami did hire her.
Miami did make the GM, but I hope it doesn't take this long.
I hope this takes.
I'd hope we'll have to wait another 32 years of 35 years for another woman to get a GM job.
Another woman of color.
Also get GM job because we're locking.
Don't get it twisted you were still locking.
Women in these roles were locking people of color in these roles in teams, front offices were severely lacking.
And we've got it.
If you want to move these sports forward, if you want to give kids the dream if you want, you want kids to look and say, Hey, I could be a GM.
I could be a team president I could doom or I could do more than play.
When my time is done, you need more Kim Ning's.
You need Mawr women in the front office.
You need mawr, Asian American.
In the front office, you need more black faces.
You need more faces of color.
You need mawr faces that are diverse.
If you want kids young, old with her background to having a temple goal and they can see it.
So I wish you the best of luck.
I hope it goes well.
Miami turned things around.
We know that we know they made the playoffs this year in the expanded postseason and again Miami Marlins.
The CEO Derek Jeter is a black man on the connection there on the connection there from their time together in New York or even Mawr important.
And if you want to see more people like him given GM jobs because she dang, she so deserves this, she deserved a job for very long time anyway.
Without things up now talking a little hockey reverse retro jerseys, they have finally been unveiled.
The NHL's fourth Jersey program was rolled out this morning, and the jerseys that are out there, all 31 franchises my favorites.
You can go to h l dot com, and you can see what the NHL and Adidas have put together for the franchise is my favorite that I've come out my top five one Colorado.
Oh, my goodness, Colorado.
I love the fact that they went back and they fully embraced their history as the Nordiques by using a Burgundy Burgundy Avalanche Burgundy Nordiques jersey.
That's my favorite right there.

It's a gorgeous look.
The 30 Lee is in there as well.

Bring the greenback.
Minnesota gets a nod.
Number three for their cool blend of the person with the wild logo and going back to Minnesota with the missile of life type colors and loved it.
Evan 10 4 They have the probably reverse retro, the white.
I like the white like the white and orange in there, but I'll say this much.
They should have invert the colors.
The oil drop is still the NHL oil drop that should have been heard.
The colors with a white oil drop to pay homage to the Wh a look, but it's still a great jersey.
And number five Vegas.
I love the Red Jersey I love Vegas has another journey that isn't just gray or white.
I love the red jersey that is a throwback homage to the I h.

Hopefully that stayed around longer than just this year.
Now, the uniforms that needed some more work.

Just change the sleeves and darken the blue.
Come on, we want the fisherman.
Look after We want the people Want the fisherman Look again.
Bring it back! No, I'm sorry.
So no, they San Jose to me was very, uh I don't like black in the sharks jersey.

They should have kept away from David from black.
No, no, The black to me.
It sticks out like a sore thumb.
Like a sore thumb.
It's not what I wanted. No.
And then Toronto 1970 logo just doesn't look.
It looks It looks odd.
It isn't sitting right on that design.
For some reason, it looks very Canadian Tire jersey, like at least jersey and then the rest are first are mainly middle of the pack.
Our honorable mentions go to to the Rangers for bringing back the Statue of Liberty.
Look, I love that one.
L a Kings on a row mentions well for again to different era combinations off the Gretzky era Low the Gretzky era logo on the purple and gold design that works so very well.
And then, of course, the flames brought back.
Blasted the horse.
The horse logo brought it back on a black background.
