realize what's up.
Everybody for a while, Uh, see if everyone second, Arby's home and trying to figure out what's going on.
It's crazy world we're living in today.
So, uh, it's been probably about a few weeks since I've conical alive here.
And I have to admit, obviously, a lot has happened.
A lot has changed throughout the world.
Uh, I have to wear hat right now because I'm not gonna be able to the haircut for a while, Which is fun.
So what? Some people in here let me let me share it.
It's a little bit so we can get everybody talking.
Hopefully, we get some more people to join him.
We could talk a little NFL.
We took a lot of stuff.
Uh, when everybody feeling out there, give me a little bit.
Here, set this up.
Take me a second.
Ah, I want to get this shared amongst the masses here so we can get as many people as we can.
You are by talking because obviously we need some positivity people we need.
We need stuff to talk about right now. All right.
Thank you all for the NFL, right? Thank God for the NFL.
Uh, we need people to talk right now.
We need to talk about little positivity.
And, you know, we had that would have felt for HD, but But as people check in, I just want to know what people do with themselves.
Now, you know, there's a lot.
Unfortunately, people are working and I have to say, you know, my prayers go out to everybody that are on the front line off this pandemic and something that we've never, ever witnessed before in our lifetime.
I know, especially in my lifetime.
I've lived through 9 11 and this is completely different in my opinion.
You know, it was something about, you know, every day we looked as far as you know, who are we looking at? What was coming next.
But now it's, you know, we're kind of sedated to our house and our homes and and, you know, it's something different, but I think we're all trying to work through it.
We remain positive and no, we have a care for the people that are sick and help the people, you know, regain healthiness and keep everybody healthy.
You know, just, you know, for all your parents out there as well.
You know, I'm a parent of, you know, three Children myself, and we have to remain focused and positive, and we have to remain, you know, as a sense off.
You know, uh, I keep saying positivity, but, you know, basically, we cannot show them that we're scared, right? We are.
Kids live out their lives.
They want to look to us as the menswear has a role model the site.
You know, Mom, Dad, You know, it's always a look.
Okay, We're gonna be okay.
It's something that we have toe practices, always social distancing, no loss of her hands and, you know, with Carell and soak up water and watch our surroundings.
And there's so many different things with do.
But let let's let's get to the sports part of this.
And obviously there's been one of the weirdest things I've ever witnessed.
Aware there is zero games every day, and there's nothingto lot at night.
But I'll tell you what, it's allows me to look back at some of the historic performances of all time, and that's something I'm gonna start doing here on a weekly basis.
Is recapping some of the most historic performances that maybe we've forgotten about because we've been so ingested into the daily lives of ourselves off sports of athletes and understand there's so many different, so many different performances that we may have never witnessed.
I mean, obviously, they just showed in 1992 Duke and Kentucky game, and I were just talking about, you know, the Christian Laettner shot.
You see the 30 for 30 and they're gonna speed up the Michael Jordan of 30 for 30 in Chicago.
Bulls would absolutely be great.
It's something that we're gonna look at it and something that we finally get to sit back and the vision in how good that Chicago Bulls team waas the winds 60 every cent's with Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen.
It was just, you know, unbelievable.
But right now, yeah, Hartford Whalers highlights.
There's a say Blake texted with the I'd watched all the Hartford Whalers highlights.
And I'll tell you what.
I still remember the jersey of the Hartford Whalers because I used to be a hockey guy.
And people don't realize that that hockey used to be my forte, you know, for the Philadelphia people out there that have been unfortunately seeing the thought of your flyers who were on the street.
We don't know that is going to resume or when this killing resumed and you know and how that will look.
But there's so many different things that we could look at it and understand.
What what are we going to look at when we come back? When is it going to come back? And and that's okay.
But right now I want to get in a little football and we'll talk about everything.
Listen, as people were second and let me know what you're doing yourself, let me know, you know, sports wise, you know, even if its life and I get that.
But I think there's been so much negativity as so much panic within the media world right now that nobody really knows what they think and everybody's nervous.
And I was wondering it.
All I can say is I finally I have to say I kind of dove into a deep depression for a little while and it was something I've never witnessed before and I never knew how that felt, and I think that's an underlying of cir***stance off this virus and of this sickness that people are talking about.
You know, if you fall into something like that, try to look yourself in the mirror and look at other people and ask for help and and make sure that you can go on because your family depends on it.
And that's something that I've been able to kick and I'm back and and I feel good and I'm ready to talk.
So let's let's look at the NFL.
I look obviously thank God for NFL free agency because of something talking about.
And you know it again.
Why you're checking in telling about the old school as sports.
You're watching the multiple games, old school performances, you know, everything that we're seeing right now, let us know, right? But I Zahra bigger story than Tom Brady going to the tape of Bay Buccaneers.
I think that's that's been so underplayed right now, only because I have.
I have to honestly tell you as a as a media person, as sports commentator and, you know, and sports journalists and yeah, I I get it when you wait.
You're looking sports.
Is the hole in there? So many other things going on, and sometimes it's hard to focus, right, and it's hard to say Watch these athletes signed these $100 million deals and people are out of work and people you know are going to be able to maintain their normal lives throughout this pandemic.
And it's hard to look at those money figures.
But if you take away those money figures and you look at someone of players and a change uniforms Tom Brady, I mean this.
This goes back to where Joe Montana's switched from that the San Francisco 40 Niners to the Kansas City Chiefs.
I mean, this is that big when you're talking about the NFL's goat, the greatest player of all time in mind mind okay? And I know I'm not saying the greatest quarterback of all time, greatest player of all time.
This is what we're witnessing and any changes from a completely different style, right? Completely different sound.
And I think that's gonna be unique.
So what happens with the tape of a Buccaneers? He goes as explosive offense with Chris.
God would have, like Evans and I still don't think I'm gonna go running back position as I record this right now.
They're still looking at maybe at the Vons of Freedom and somebody to come in there because I don't think they're sold on Ronald Jones or maybe to do something to drink.
But, you know, that's not he's gonna bring in.
Maybe I You know what? I don't think that's gonna happen.
I don't think that because I don't think Bruce Areas wants anything that they would.
Antonio Brown And I think right now is not the time to bring somebody in with that kind of mentality, especially when you already have the weapons.
Listen, use my Gavin's use.
Crystalline is two guys were to catch a puss balls.
Think about that fancy football terms, thinking about how how you know how exciting that's gonna be, or that offense.
And the only people say Tom Brady doesn't have any left.
Listen, you have to remember something, Chris God, when even since he was in for the time, it was one Penn State that time last year.
Look at his your tape of the catch that something extraordinary this kind can run.
He can fly, you know, he could do so many different things and just go long, and he's gonna catch the ball like a Julia adamant throughout the middle of Wes Welker and that.
Listen, remember, go back and look at Tom Brady with Wes Welker.
Go back and look at that. Right.
Look at that game.
So we look how ridiculously fast rest Wes Welker turn off five yard split slaying.
Which one of your game? And that's something I think, Chris.
God, when is gonna bring with Tom, Bring to the team of the offense, and then you have you got a guy like Mike Evans who is your classic Randy Moss prototype.
Obviously he this Nobody will be ready.
Most, but I don't talk a prototype.
I need the size, the speed, the athleticism.
Right, That's hard.
He's going to possess.
I mean, who are you going to cover that? You got a guy like O.
Howard, right? And you have a guy like camera break two guys that can form on the field at the same time or split out in different sets.
This team is going to be something that keep an eye on.
All right? It's gonna be something for us, the witness.
And then you look around the NFL and look at some of the people don't Rivers goes to the Colts.
Very low under the radar.
Moved that people aren't talking about because Tom Brady commands the headlines. Right.
But Philip Rivers one year deal goes the know that that the Indianapolis called on the Frank Wright, who has shown that he really knows how to take a quarterback underneath his arm.
You know, a lot of that folds Allah car.
So once I love to Kobe percent.
I mean, he has done it right.
He has done it and he hears it with T Y Hilton.
Okay, he he's got more on the Mac.
They got an offensive line that was very underrated.
Placed here went from one of the worst of one of the best.
They have a really, really good on defense that seem in Indianapolis.
Listen that the power has shifted in the A F.
C. Now the power has shifted.
Obviously, the Kansas City Chiefs are the Super Bowl champions.
They are the rain champions, but it was a huge piece that dropped in the accuracy when Tom Brady decided to go to Tampa Bay.
Ah, huge piece off that I ever see in that division because You know, that's big news within the absent big news because you never know.
Okay, now that Miami CSI Miami spending a boatload of money, right? Ah, boat little money.
Because now they know they have it.
Everybody has a chance.
Then everybody has a chance.
And I think that's a telltale story when you talk about a guy like Tom Brady leaving the nest and then you go to the other side of the ball and you know, I'm a Philadelphia guy, you know? Obviously I was thrown off evil guy and Darius Slay.
I think various lies.
One of the most underrated quarterbacks off the NFL right now.
And, you know, I I was so glad to the Eagles make this move, and I think that's gonna pay dividends for both people.
There's gonna pay dividends for Darius Slay.
This could make dividends for the photo of your eagles.
Very underrated signing for the Eagles is Jabbar Hargrave in.
And let me tell you something we have witnessed in Philadelphia 80 Reed, who has put into our brain day in and day out, right that the way we were the trenches, right? That's what we will do.
I'm getting questions your own.
There is no way win within the trenches, and that's exactly what they are.
Starting to them, right? They are startinto win within the trenches and they're voting it up.
Now you can keep a guy like grain Graham on the field.
Wit Fletcher Cox with heart rate with Malee Jackson, Fletcher Cox can be get defensive, and in certain situations, that is one hole, a cious front line, if you're if you're looking at it.
Hull a cious front line, right? This is something that we have the witness when you have a guy like Malcolm Jenkins who listen, and I think I'm not gonna get into Malcolm's active situation, we'll get in that little bit later because you know it, obviously, that the evils want to go in a different direction.
And Malcolm was his own worst enemy.
And I hate to say that, and I love Malcolm Jenkins, and I think he will go down as one of the best deals of all time.
But when you do not come off the field and listen and this is this the problem? I I said this last year.
He indirectly her his value by playing snap after snap indirectly hurt its value right? And the reason why I say that his Because if you don't come up the field at 30 plus years old, your you know your value is going to decline, right, your value.
Basically, people are going to tell you that you've played too many snaps, that there's there's not enough trend on a tire anymore.
The tires, a ball and go.
I think Malcolm Jenkins didn't have anything left.
I think he had a lot left.
But the problem is, when you look for saying that he wanted the +34 year deal with all that guaranteed money that pending on that so we can argue all day.
40 million. 50 million was too much.
It is what it is that they moved on a science area sleigh.
The psychotic will parks.
They re signed Jalen Mills.
They re signed Rodney McLeod, you, this secondary people is not gonna be as bad as people think.
I think it's very talented.
They still have Avante Maddox thing.
You know, we're going to do with work rave on the block way still have Sidney Jones, and I'm not saying, But we have a lot of pieces here trying to train whistle. Douglas.
There's a lot of pieces that still haven't becoming, you know, come in the place that we look at the offenses auditable, and we all know House on Jeffrey will be moved.
But something has to give here.
And something has to give the receiver position.
You know, I love Shawn Pyramid.
I know that the Eagles have talked about him and people told me I was not cement.
But this is exactly what the Eagles need now.
Will they really? I deal done? I don't know.
It looks like maybe he goes back to Tampa value.
I'm not sure, but I think that maybe too many weapons for Tampa Bay we'll find that.
You know, I wish we had that issue, but we kind of got a crush on parenting.
You light him up with the guy like this.
Sean Jackson, right? And you, you still have great war.
Do you know, I'm curious to see how much he gains from his experience last year, and I still only think that they're gonna drag a wide receiver in the first round, so I still think they'll be okay right there.
But make no mistake about this and you're gonna see this on the cover page off this video.
I call this sports without any action, only because the reason why is there is no action right now, so But we're talking sports that any action? Which one is great again? Before you know, before I could see you fined me all at ticket sold 23 on Twitter.

But that's OK because we saw the NFL futures and we and we still have things to talk about and then on SportsCastr.

They do a great job of SportsCastr.
Join us up. Sign up.
Okay, you go in there, you put your name and you put the email, address it to the user name and boom, we're going to go.
And you can follow me on here all the time.
But when I talk about the phone up Eagles, Carson, Wentz and Fletcher, that's all you need to know.
When you look at this video and you see the beginning and I do know E v P Ah, he's a good friend of my my body at Adrian. Thank you.
Okay, Who does a lot of work with us as well.
It was great guy on, you know, at the bit of bird you could follow him and, uh, affiliate flowers dot com and that Fox sports a gambler.
But if you look at the cover photo, I picked the photo, of course of winds and Fletcher Cox purposes because they are the two guys who you're gonna win or lose with.
Carson went on the offense.
Editable Fletcher Cox, one of defense irritable.
You see, lays here when Fletcher Cox did not have a great year and I really think that was because he was injured in the beginning Foot injuries are not tough to come back with.
It was something that bothered him all year low.
He tried to push through, but he wasn't his name.
Normal Tom itself.
When he did play up to his capabilities, he is virtually unstoppable.
What does that do? The one with the Eagles did on a defense dishonorable.
One day there was a beef doctor defensive line, and I still don't think they're done.
I still don't think they're done.
There's a certain guy out there in Jacksonville is being a tangle that we'll see what happens if he does decide to go that route.
I'm not going to say you think you all know who he is, but what I'm saying is I I'm not an illegal taper.
Tampering me is all in the butt that I'm just kidding.
But if you look at it and you Cy, they bumped up the defense of long, and what they did was that gives your cornerbacks more time to cover.
They brought a veteran guy in various like and stop tell me he's non the ocelot because he's not Nani Asakawa is a guy we never really even seem play we bought.
He was all time, all hyped, non, the awesome what was all right and we bought into it.
The Eagles born into it and they signed a big money deal.
Don't tell me about Burden, Maxwell, because Vernon Maxwell was who wasn't something Harry Wells carry Wheels was actually serviceable in the role that he came here to big Excuse me, but at the end of the day, various light is a proven Pro Bowl caliber player who we've seen play and locked down people.
I don't want to hear that 83 rating from pro football focus has nothing to do with me.
I don't want to hear about that.
I could tell you what my I see what everybody else is.
I see when you need a guy this step up and make a plate Barry size guy Byron Jones.
I like Byron Jones, but guess what? At the end of this deal, Byron Jones and variously will be the same exact age.
And you told me, who am I gonna pay all that money to is actually a little less of what Byron Jos is making.
I'm gonna pay the proven guy every single day.
So I was a big proponent variously.
I think that's one of the biggest moves and the Eagles could have made.
And I think it's just gonna prove them to be successful going for it.
Now we look att, Someone's got to tell him he could get this at that.
Because that are hiding it for all this and that.
You know, we'll see if it is.
Calm down a little bit, but I'm sure I shall.
We get on the floor with everybody, Blake.
But, you know, you look around the NFL.
Listen. Another Melvin Gordon.
Melvin Gordon going to the Denver Broncos.
What does that mean for Royce Freeman? It felt Lindsay, they I cannot wait to talk about fantasy football, because once this is all over and all of these dominoes dropped, the fantasy football rankings are going to explode because we have no idea what these players are going to do, right? We have no idea.
You know, I thought that was a very interesting signing with because you already have two young guys there.
You bring a Melvin court so Where does the Vonta Freeman go? Does he go to the Tampa Bay? I know it.
Does he go to Green Bay? He's out there with Aaron Jones. It's a mall.
I mean, what happens? The running back position is so interesting.
Is he David Johnson? We even talk about it.
Even chance of going into sections of that.
The Andre Hopkins, in my opinion, the best.
Why receiver in football goes the Arizona Cardinals.
Finster already said he's gonna play one more year.
So now you have Christian Kirk, right? You have DeAndre Hopkins yet? Larry Fitzgerald.
You have Cuyler, Mary, I'll tell you what.
That offense I'm excited.
They really liked what they got in a canyon drink laced here.
And I think can you drink kind of fell into his own, which was really nice to see something that, you know we seen as fantasy players.
But you know that you see on NFL level, which I think was great.
So but, you know, look at baseball, you know, you know, it's a shame would be.
We talked about opening day next week, and we don't have baseball talk about We'll see when that will resume in the N B.
You know, one thing I did here is that the Big Three, the Ice Cube League, you know, I really enjoy.
I saw about trying to do something where you know, an empty arenas in April where they can actually test the parts of the foursome participants on the seam base and make sure that they are negative before they play.
You got a little three on three game, which I think will be pretty amazing.
It'll give us something more to look at, but this is just something that we never thought. No golf.
I mean, no bowling, no tennis that you know nothing.
You know, it shows one thing. I will side.
It has showed me that I've been so consumed in sports on an everyday basis, because listen, that's that's what I love, right? I love that and, you know, But at the end of the day, it puts things in perspective a little bit, you know, take the extra couple minutes.
You know, if you have Children out there to spend time with them, see what they're thinking He was going on in her head to toe doing in school right.
Don't rush the phone and a computer in the iPad every every five minutes and have it out with the updates on Twitter, you know? And it sweets.
And remember, that's always gonna be there.
Tom Brady signed with the tape of a Buccaneers, but guess what? Whether it's yesterday, today, tomorrow, three months and now he's still gonna be on save a buck of the right.
And that's one thing I think we have to take in perspective.
Everybody is so worried about being the first person, the first person to basically say, Hey, look, this is what happened.
It would've been a breaking news source.
Well, times have changed times of tapes where everybody is on social media.
Everybody has access to the information.
So instead of trying to be the 1st 1 to break the news, how about you just try to bring ah, unique tone? So what that news actually is give a unique perspectives.
Give us all something and nobody's opinions wrong.
That's why we all have one right.
That's what makes us a world so great because we all have an opinion.
Nobody is prejudiced against somebody's opinion because they might not like it. It doesn't matter.
We all have one.
And that's what's so great.
So bring them out.
And that's what one thing I want to go or, you know, I went 2122 23 minutes.
I want to go 20 plus minutes.
It's been a while.
We're gonna get on here every other day.
We're, You know, we're gonna get talked, you know? I want to hear everything.
Listen, you know, when I get on here, I'm gonna talk about something I witnessed or something I seen that we all know that this will be our outlet to talk about sports that talk about life and talk about everything.
Right? Because at the end of the day, way just never know what's going to happen.
Hey, what's up, Phil? Filters checked in.
How you making out body? I know it's that life is tough out there, buddy.
And a lot of us it's good to have this outlet.
It's good to have this conversation.
Uh uh, before I go because, you know, that fills one of one of my followers, and I follow him and we both go back and forth.
He, uh he just came back from Clearwater.
He was watching the fillings out there, so I'm glad he got back. He saved.
Ah, I'm curious what you think about his Eagles moves, man.
What do you What do you What's your biggest deal here? You You like to slay Delia late? The Hargrove deal? What's next? You know certain things You hit me up on Twitter at Sea Control 23 again.
You know, I want to know what you think is next.
I want to know what you think.
Maybe somebody else who's the next guy to sign.
You know what? Your future What do you look at that? You know, if you see a major trade coming through T, what do you think about the draft? That trash gonna go full interactive, right? It's gonna be where it have Skype phone calls and they're still going into the draft that all this stuff is still gonna happen.
We just I have to change the way we get our information.
And one thing I will sigh is how special we all must feel right now.
How lucky we should feel about the technology that we actually have a look and think about it.
This happened 10 to 15 years ago.
What? We didn't have the technology, right? Think about what? We didn't have the capabilities that we had.
Now we wouldn't be able to interact where all we had was a pager in a payphone.
Well, you know, how would you get in touch of people? If you know you couldn't go outside your house, use a pay phone? Right now, we have afforded the luxury to have three and 45 G's speeds and gigabyte connections and bios and Netflix and Amazon Prime.
And we are so lucky.
And that's when I wouldn't leave everybody with this hand again.
I'll be back this week.
