What does UCL tear mean for Brock Purdy in SF? | Your phone calls | QB News.


Goalie gummies get you so close to your goals, you can actually taste them.

The trick? Simply start with bite-sized steps, like Goalie's Apple Cider Vinegar Gummies with added B vitamins for daily health. Or Goalie Ashwagandha Gummies to help you relax, restore, and unwind.

Mmm, tastes like wellness just got a whole lot better. And when goals taste this good, it's easy to achieve them. Goalie, taste your goals.

Learn more at today. How many people have already started planning their Super Bowl party? We're going to have a party here, actually. I said to my mom, I believe I'm going to make a seven-layer dip because I made one for Thanksgiving and it was a big hit. The only thing is if I make a huge seven-layer dip, I can't eat it all myself.

That's not happening. So, similar to what I did a few years ago when I made a buffalo chicken dip for the first time. Oh, that was so good. I actually, maybe I'll pivot and make that. Jay, if I make buffalo chicken dip, will you eat it? I would definitely get in on some buffalo chicken dip. Okay, but not the seven-layer dip?

What's the layers? Avocado or guac, olives, sour cream, cheese, beef. I mean, I don't know if you would eat all of that. I think I'd be more inclined for the buffalo. It's more up my alley, I think. Oh, okay. Well then, for that reason, I'll make sure. So, I haven't decided at some point. Jay's always all in.

He doesn't always bring anything to the table. Oh, come on. Okay. When was the last time you offered to bring me some food? I absolutely brought food last time. Candy!

No, no, no. Candy! The other night you said to me, should I bring some candy?

That was the other night. And it's not candy that it's some snack you got out of the gas station convenience store. Don't lie. 90% of the time, it's the gas.

It is 90%. 90% of the time, it's something you got from the gas station convenience store or from the, what are those called? Vending machines. From the vending machines.

It's the thought that counts. I'm looking out to get food. Is it?

Is it? If you know that I'm not going to eat candy or something from the gas station convenience store and then the vending machine. I appreciate the offer, yes, but most of the food that you eat is not food that I want to eat on a regular basis because one of us cares about our health. Just admit it, your favorite food groups are soda, candy, and junk.

Yeah, I'll admit that. Okay. Well, I can't eat like that, nor do I want to eat like that. But what about, what did I bring recently when we had an actual meal and it was food and you enjoyed it?

So it's not every time. Hmm. Hmm. Forgot that.

I honestly have no idea. Sweet potato fries. That happened. Oh, fries though. Sweet potato fries.

Come on. Still, they're still fried. It's still fried food, Jay. When was the last time you brought something healthy or something that I could eat without having to worry about gaining 18 pounds? I bring peanuts now and then.

When was the last time? It's been a minute. Okay.

It's been a minute. Jay, I told Jay, I had to give him an ultimatum recently because every single night he would show up with candy from the gas station convenience store. Jay, if you care about me, you will stop bringing candy. I cannot eat candy every day and you should not be eating candy every day like you're a sixth grader, but it is his favorite thing.

The Swedish fish, he has friends now. What do you want me to do? I want you to not buy your meals from a gas station convenience store. This is more of a snack, I'd say. It's a staple. Just be honest. Where do you shop the most?

7-Eleven. See, I mean, many of you out there, I'm sure, can identify with producer Jay, but I cannot because I'm not. Not only do I not want to eat like that because I value my teeth, but also I would gain 800 pounds if I ate like producer Jay. He just doesn't happen to have that challenge in his life yet. But beware, it'll happen.

My metabolism slowed down around 33 and you are getting dangerously close. Anyway, it's totally fine. My point is only that Jay loves it when I bring food to work. But for the most part, he's not like, hey, I'll bring something too. What would you like to bring for our Super Bowl Sunday?

Super Bowl Sunday? Don't say Swedish fish, please. No, a real food like sliders would be cool. Are you going to actually make them or just order them? I'll let you decide. No, I'm not deciding. This would be your contribution. Well, I mean, I've let you make that determination, I suppose. Nope, nope. I'm not your mom.

You can make a determination on your own. Meaning I'll make them or I'll buy them and I wouldn't tell you and you'd have to let me know if you think that I made them or if I bought them. I know you don't make anything except for eggs. I can make a burger. Sliders that you bring to work.

You can make some sliders, put them on some little rolls, dress them up, season them. No, it would be the first time. You know that it would be the first time.

But I guess there's a first time for everything. So anyway, if you're planning your Super Bowl party, I don't know if Jay's having a party. I get invited to parties and I always have to politely decline because I'm boring and I take notes during the Super Bowl.

And in addition to that, who wants to go to a party, have your laptop, your note cards, your pen and be telling people, hey, quiet, I need to hear what's going on. Or even worse, I very frequently replay moments that I need to see again, even more than listening to the announcers because a lot of times I accidentally tune them out. I'm just so focused on what I'm doing that I'm not really paying attention unless I want to hear what they have to say about a particular play. And so I'm the person who is rewinding and then fast forwarding through commercials, so nobody wants to watch football with me, really, unless you know ahead of time that that's what's going to be happening. But it's not fun. So I decline invitations to Super Bowl parties. I used to explain and now I just say, I'm sorry, I have other plans. Anyway, I do try to make some kind of food so I have something to look forward to other than taking notes. But I heard these stats on a news report as I was driving into work.

And for those of you who are going to have fun watching the Super Bowl, are you ready? This is what you should prepare for at the grocery store or the liquor store, I suppose, depending upon where you shop. First of all, the price of avocados has plummeted. Thankfully, there was a real good crop this summer. Remember this time last year, avocado prices were through the roof.

Thanks, Mexico. And so now we know that the avocados will be reasonable since that is a staple for a lot of people in the form of guacamole. So the prices get passed on to you. So avocados are much more affordable for this year's Super Bowl parties. However, the cost of beer is up 11%.

So just be prepared to fork over extra dinero omoneta for your cerveza. So you're going to end up paying more for beer, but not as much as you would pay. So I suppose here's your excuse to drink more beer and less soda. Soda, and I've noticed this at the store, is up 25% over what it was a year ago.

How about that? Primarily because of the cost of sugar. And for people who drink zeros, I drink Coke Zero, Dr. Pepper Zero. I don't know what their excuse is for passing along the cost to me when the price of sugar is up and there's not supposed to be any sugar, but whatevs. So yes, the cost of soda is up 25% from this time last year. And finally, the price of chips, which is absolutely a staple no matter what party you're at. Generally corn chips or blue corn chips or tortilla chips, leis, ruffles, whatever it is that you eat.

The price of chips up 22% over last year, which I've also noticed. I don't know if that applies to pretzels. They're also a staple.

So yes, I'm going to have to figure out. Actually, I have three bags of chips. I'm such a chip fiend.

It's really not good for me to have this many chips. I practice exercising willpower and self-control by having the food in the house that I want to eat so desperately like ice cream and making myself wait until after a workout or after yard work, something like that. So it's a good practice for me to exercise self-control. It's why I tell people, I've said this to producer Jay, I have more self-control than you will ever know. Because I make myself, I kind of do this to myself on purpose. I have plenty of chips. So I probably don't need to buy chips. And I'm certainly not drinking alcohol before I have to come into work.

Neither is producer Jay. No Super Bowl party drinking for you. Are you guys having, is your family doing a party? Friends doing a party?

One of my best friends is actually a huge Eagles fan. So I'm sure he's going to have a thing at his house, but I'll be like you. I'll probably just be watching the game, taking notes and being a little lame, but it's all right. So if you're a little lame, what does that make me? Cool.

I mean that wasn't even a kick save and a beauty, but nice try. Lame just came out of his mouth and that's what he thinks about those of us who have to watch the Super Bowl on our own. He knows of us. I'm in that group. Well you are now, but you just said it's lame. It's a little lame. I mean, you know, you do what you got to do.

Can I tell you the truth? As much as every now and then I think, oh, it'd be so much fun to not have to feel the pressure of breaking down a Super Bowl. That's a fleeting thought because there is no place on earth I would rather be than in this radio studio in the wake of the biggest game of the entire year.

So I say it all the time. It is a privilege and an honor to be one of the first voices that you all come across breaking down the Super Bowl. It's one of the reasons why I've continued to work this schedule because I love Sunday nights. It includes Sunday nights after a humongous playoff game. So last night it would have felt so wrong to not be here talking about it. And as we come up on what will be my 11th CBS Sports Radio Super Bowl post-game show. Yeah, fleeting moment. I think, okay, maybe it would be great if I didn't have to drive into work and talk about the game. And then I think, hell no. Are you kidding me? There's a lot of people out there who are envious that this is what I get to do on Super Bowl night. Yeah, I worked hard to get to this spot, so I will cherish every second. But if you're having a party, first of all, I suppose I could share some of my chips with you.

Second of all, be prepared to shell out more for your beer and your soda and your tater chips. It's After Hours with Amy Lawrence on CBS Sports Radio. Our phone number 855-212-4227 on Twitter. Again, you're very kind. Lots of messages coming in over the last 24 hours and they are special to me. Some of them are those of you who have been listening for years and so you know me pretty well. So thank you for those on Twitter or on Facebook.

After Hours with Amy Lawrence. We were going to do a TD of the Week and I don't know that we've decided if it's worth it. We were going to do one touchdown from each team, but I don't know.

Talk about lame. Is it lame-o when there are only two games to highlight one touchdown? Knowing, for instance, that even though the Eagles killed it, their touchdowns were not super exciting. The second Miles Sanders was pretty impressive when he broke through the O-line and not a finger was laid on him. The Christian McCaffrey was uber impressive even though it was for the team that scored the fewest number of points this weekend. But that touchdown was awesome. The man is not tall, but he is strong. And if you do not wrap seven arms around him, generally you're going to find yourself on the ground and he's still moving.

So strong and so powerful. He broke through multiple tackles on his way to the end zone. That was the only touchdown that matters with score, so I suppose we have no choice except use that one as TD of the Week. Patrick Mahomes, I mean his touchdown pass, which it was a progression. It was not his first read or his top option to throw the ball to a Marquis Valdes-Scantling in the end zone who ended up on his rump.

Two cheeks equals or one cheek equals two feet, but he had two cheeks down. So that was a phenomenal touchdown. And really it wasn't just about Patrick, it was also about MVS and his post route and coming back to the football. You know that there was a, shoot, there was a moment when I think it was a ball that was knocked away from a receiver. And I distinctly recall seeing, because the receiver, he turned around after he ran his route and waited for the football, but he did not go back to the football. Instead the defender, because the receiver was not moving back toward the football, the defender was able to step in and just knock it away.

And I distinctly recall seeing Mahomes say, you've got to come back to the ball, you've got to come back to the ball. And that is one of the rules in basketball too. When your teammate is looking for a target to pass the ball, you go back to the ball. Because if you don't, the defender is seeing what you're seeing. The defender is seeing the ball coming towards you. So you want to be on the move and get in front of that defender and be Johnny on the spot, or Jenny on the spot I suppose.

And make sure the defender doesn't get to that ball before you do. So yeah, it was a really impressive connection between Mahomes and MVS. And then for Joe Burrow to Tee Higgins and the Bengals, that was awesome.

The way he found Tee Higgins and the way Tee was able to out leap two Chiefs defenders. So I don't know. I suppose we could do TD of the week or we could not. We're not really feeling it yet. We're just, we're not there yet.

It's After Hours with Amy Lawrence on CBS Sports Radio. We've got a lot more to get to. Our reaction from Zach Taylor in the wake of the Bengals coming up just short.

But there are other things too and we'll do this before we get through the hour. Novak Djokovic is back to number one in the world rankings. And we didn't have enough time or really a lot of time to be able to talk about his win down under. But more than just his 10th Australian Open singles title and his 22nd Grand Slam championship, which ties in with Rafa, is how emotional he was. He was essentially crying like Joseph Asai was just for completely different reasons. And so he explained his emotion and his outpouring of just everything to release the relief.

And I want you to hear from him. Also Rory McIlroy, he likes to pick fights these days. And just like the Chiefs, when you win, then you can say whatever you like.

Because not only did you walk the walk, but you had the right then to talk the talk. So yeah, a little bit of golf and tennis to mix in. I wanted to tell you too about Brock Purdy, the diagnosis for him. And since I teased that, I'll say that here before we take this quick call. Brock Purdy, unfortunately, was diagnosed with a torn UCL in his right elbow. So a torn ligament in his right elbow. And that was on the hit with Hasan Redick. His arm was bent back at a really awkward angle as he's holding the ball up and he's getting ready to throw. And it was a fumble. And Hasan Redick essentially was unfettered to get to the quarterback.

Like Chris Jones was for most of the game with the Bengals. I know people have come at me with, oh it's unlucky. Oh my gosh. How often this happens that I'm talking about a particular play and I look up and it's on NFL Network right in front of me.

Are they listening to me and they're attempting to match what their videos are with what I'm saying at the time? Did Metta take them over? Stop it. In that case, yes. Metta is the devil. No, Metta did not take over NFL Network.

NFL Network's not sharing its revenues. So Hasan Redick was able to get unimpeded to the quarterback and slammed into Brock Purdy, created the fumble. We know that the Eagles are extremely aggressive. But we had four players on the Eagles squad this year with ten plus sacks. They love to blitz and rush the quarterback.

They love to create havoc. And Redick is really good at it. He had a phenomenal game in the NFC championship. And so how about blame the offensive line that didn't block him and gave him a free lane and free reign to get to Brock Purdy. Meanwhile, Purdy himself indicated how sad he was that he wasn't able to be out there and play at full extent.

But the news was worse on Monday. This torn ligament in his throwing elbow will keep him out for six months. And so based on the timeline, he might miss the start of training camp.

Maybe it's a couple weeks into training camp. But the issue is, of course, yes, he's a rookie quarterback that defied all expectations. And Fred Warner said to us, he's the reason we're here right now following the NFC championship. He won over his teammates, not to mention was instrumental in the Niners winning a bunch of games.

He developed a rapport with these targets and they trusted him and he became the voice in the huddle. He likely would be and I don't we haven't heard from Kyle Shanahan yet. Shanahan hates talking to us about quarterbacks, so he's probably not going to give us anything. But you would imagine that he and Trey Lance would compete for the starting job.

Lance coming off the broken foot. And so the whole thing just sucks for Purdy because he doesn't now have the offseason. Voluntary OTAs, mandatory OTAs, his own workouts with potentially a quarterback guru, right? Like the opportunity to work out with other NFL QBs. There are a couple of different quarterback whisperers, so to speak, who work with these guys in the offseason.

Josh Allen and Joe Burrow. It's one reason why they have a great relationship because they work with the same QB coach in the offseason. And for Brock to not have that time, to kind of take a breath and now really start his training with his teammates or on his own to work with a quarterback coach. Because now he's deserved that and he's going to compete for the starting role.

All of that stinks. He is seeking additional medical opinions to determine whether or not he needs the surgery, though the team wants him to have the surgery. That's according to Adam Schefter, but yeah, it's sucky. It's sucky for him, it's sucky for the team, and nothing easy. Their quarterback situation, nothing easy now for about three years. It's been, and here we are, Jimmy Garoppolo is about to be a free agent for the first time in his nine year career, right? Because he was just about to hit free agency with the New England Patriots when Bill Belichick traded him to San Francisco.

Why? Well, because Belichick knew he was going to lose him for nothing at the end of that season, so he wanted to get something for him. I think it was a, don't quote me on this, I think it was a second round pick. He gets the big deal from the San Francisco 49ers at the time, paid him $27.5 million. Remember when that was a lot for a quarterback? It paid him $27.5 million a year, even though he only had a few starts under his belt.

But they were good starts and they liked what they saw. They rewarded him with the contract, and since then he's been on and off the field with injuries, though he did help them start this win streak this year and obviously help them get to a Super Bowl going back a couple of seasons ago. But I was thinking they were going to let him walk, finally, finally. He finally gets to be his own man and determine what he wants to do, and be part of an actual offseason where he's available, as opposed to last year where he was injured. And Brock Purdy and Trey Lance would go for the starting job, and neither one of them really is going to be available right away in this offseason, so they're going to have to have a quarterback to help them run through OTAs. So what, re-sign Jimmy Garoppolo? We'll have to see.

It's just a mess. Okay, so I'm running a little bit late here. Chris will get to your phone call coming up, as well as Zach Taylor talking about Joe Burrow's contract extension.

So we'll do a little mini edition, I suppose, of QB News. You can find us on Twitter after hours, CBS, also on our Facebook page. We're glad to connect with so many of you.

We welcome all kinds here on After Hours. Tom is listening. Actually, Tom's not listening. He's talking. Hello?

Hello? Go ahead. I was practicing what I was going to say. Okay, so, okay.

Time out. Do you have it written down or are you practicing in the mirror? No, no, no, no, no, no. I was just practicing what I was planning on saying. Tom, before I let you go, do you feel like the practice helped? Of course, yeah.

Practice makes that work more successful. And thank you for having me on the air. No, thank you, Tom. I appreciate that. I've never had someone get caught practicing before.

This is After Hours with Amy Lawrence. That's an Isaac special. Boy, he was proud of himself when he put that together. And you should have seen our faces. We were incredulous. And Tom didn't really get it. The fact that it should have been embarrassing for us to catch him practicing on the air, he didn't care about that at all.

It took him a good 30 seconds before he even realized he was on the air. There are moments where I miss taking more phone calls. I mean, I'll tell producer Jay sometimes, hey, let's take some calls.

I don't mind. I don't know if it's the fact that, especially in the final 90 seconds, 90 seconds, oh lordy, the final 90 minutes of the show where people are generally into their morning routine and are less apt to call a radio show, they're driving or they're working or they're getting ready for work, whatever it is. So I totally get the time slot is challenging. But also it seems like when we do try to take calls, it doesn't work out so well for us. Now, I don't know, the ratios are potentially 2 in 10, 3 in 10 maybe where we feel like the show was improved or bettered or, you know, that the caller had something to add as opposed to just being comic relief. And I don't love that. So we tend to take fewer calls. In fact, that's the kind of radio I grew up on in my previous network.

We did not take phone calls. That's not what you did there. And I remember when I first got this job, my bosses, we negotiated. OK, you're going to have to take more calls. And I said to them, I'm not taking a four hour call in show.

That's just not who I am. I wouldn't listen to it. And I don't feel like that's super intelligent radio. And that's not a knock on the callers. It's just people can talk to their friends about sports anytime they want. But if you're listening to a radio show, you're generally listening to hear someone's observations or someone's reaction.

So it's just not the type of radio that I think is highly entertaining. So we kind of negotiated back and forth. Anyway, we got to the point where we don't take a lot of calls. But Jay, is that because you don't put them through or because people just have stopped calling because they think it's not worth it? Oh, no, we get calls sometimes. I'll put them through.

I won't get to them because I'm also a member. We don't have two people in here. Oh, I remember. Thank you for pointing that out. Jay, just remember we don't have two people back here. As if I can't see the empty chair, but you know, thank you. If I had an extra like four arms, we could probably get to a couple more. Well, if you put down the candy, maybe you would have an extra hand. Then I'd have to put down the candy. Exactly.

All right. Let's talk to Chris. We're taking a chance here. Talking to Chris in Nebraska. Welcome to After Hours, CBS Sports Radio.

I am a long time first time caller. Oh, sweet. Welcome to the show.

Thank you. I just want to ask a quick question about snacking with the Super Bowl. What's your one go to that you have to have if it's there?

Granted, it might be horrible for you. What's your one snack food or like, I don't know, you would have a choice. Gotcha. Well, I generally do tend to err on I only go to Super Bowl parties if there's chili or if I can bring chili and the chili has to have the sour cream and the cheese and the green onions and all the stuff on top.

Right. So that is my go to. So I will have chili because I'm the queen of that at my house. But I wouldn't say that's a junk food. You can generally make chili relatively healthy.

So my go to and I'm not joking about this, Chris. People have to cut me off. I could eat an entire bag of Tostitos lime chips in one sitting. I can eat the whole freaking bag. And they're so good with salsa. But I also have a horseradish dip that I make. They're really good with the horseradish dip, too. So, yes, I tend to even if it's veggies in a dip, I tend to go a little bit nutso when it comes to dip, especially if it's a horseradish dip or something along those lines, like a sour cream dip. So, yeah, keep the dip away from me. Keep all dips away from me at the Super Bowl party because I'll eat the entire bag of chips and they'll be drowned in dip.

And before you know it, you'll have to, like, roll me out of the chair. Yeah, I'm a sucker for queso with meat in it. Oh, there you go. Yes, queso is really good. So salsa is relatively healthy.

Queso, not so much. But here's what else, Chris. Because I love to bake, I use it as an excuse to bake. And this year I'm going straight chocolate chunk cookies.

And Jay just looked up. As he's stuffing his face with a Snickers bar, he looks up when I say chocolate chunk cookies. So, yes, I love to bake cookies. I like to show off as a baker. And so I will probably bake a bunch of cookies and then bring those to work as well. Nice. That's a great snack.

Yeah, well, so many snacks. See, it's better for me to be working and not going to a party, really. Oh, I understand. Well, thanks for taking my call.

Of course, Chris. Have a great night. Glad to hear from you in Nebraska. Glad you found the show.

It's After Hours with Amy Lawrence on CBS Sports Radio. Yeah, we'll have more of these kind of fun stats and facts and figures. But the way I started the hour is beer is up 11 percent from a year ago. Soda is up 25 percent from a year ago. So I guess there's your permission or your economic reason to drink more beer and less soda. And then chips. Oh, right to my heart. Thank God I have a reserved bag of Tostitos lime chips.

No, you cannot come over, Jack. I have a reserved bag of Tostitos lime chips in my cupboard because I keep a spare just in case. And then I tell myself, you know what, you better open those and eat them because they'll go stale at some point. I also have, remember, JD, remember?

Oh, chips are up 22 percent. Do you remember how I told you going back to. I think it was Thanksgiving weekend, I had a house sitter and I was cleaning up after her a little bit. And because I always she leaves things behind, I always find things. So she left her charger or, you know, the piece that plugs into the wall, the adapter. She left that plugged into the outlet in my spare bedroom where she stays.

And she left a few other things. She left chicken in the fridge. So I put it in the freezer.

It's still there. I'm like, you could just get your chicken. And she's like, I just eat it or throw it away. I'm not throwing away perfectly good chicken. She also left pasta sauce and cheese and other foods that I don't generally eat.

Or at least that's not the kind of pasta sauce I would eat. I tried. It was disgusting.

I was like, no, I cannot. I can't eat this. It was so sweet.

So I tend to eat more authentic Italian pasta sauce. And it was so sweet. It was so totally full of sugar. I had to throw it out. But I feel guilty throwing out food.

I don't like doing that. Anyway, because of that, because I feel guilty throwing out food, when I found a Twinkie under my bed, under my spare bed, there was a Twinkie. I have not been able to throw it out, but I also have not had the occasion to eat it yet. Under the bed. It was under the bed. Packaged, obviously. Of course, wrapped.

Oh my gosh. If it was unwrapped, I would have thrown it away, you weirdo. I'm pretty sure it would survive.

It doesn't matter. I wouldn't eat a Twinkie that was unwrapped underneath my bed. They can survive like nuclear warfare.

It doesn't matter if they can survive it. Are you kidding me? Like there's dirt. Well, I mean, it's not dirty under there, but there's dust. And my cat goes under there. My dog bed is under there. Why am I eating a Twinkie that's unwrapped?

Who asks that question? Would I really keep the Twinkie if it was unwrapped? Would you keep the Twinkie if it was unwrapped? I might leave it there just for scientific purposes.

But just to check it out. To study an ant colony, you would leave a Twinkie underneath your bed? Would it decompose or would it even rot? No, you just said it would probably not.

No, it wouldn't for a long time. Twinkies are jacked full of preservatives that mean it's going to stay. But it doesn't mean you're not going to attract mice or ants.

I don't know. Well, just anyway. You don't need to know that. I'm telling you.

You leave open food around and you're going to attract critters. That's how it works. I more was just shocked that there was a Twinkie under the guest bed and that was the location. But I know you're not dumb.

You have more common sense than I do. Why would you ask if the Twinkie was unwrapped when I tell you it's still... Just confirming. Just getting details here. This is a crime scene. We gotta make sure they get the details. I don't know why I'm yelling at you.

That is ridiculous. I would not keep a Twinkie that was unwrapped. What kind of a person do you think I am? I really didn't think you would. I was just confirming and moving on.

It wasn't really the big part of the story. No, we're never having these conversations again. I don't even know what that... Unwrapped? Is that something you would do? I don't know.

If I saw it... Okay, I can't. I can't anymore with you. Oh my gosh.

We obviously cannot talk about food and this is like the... You're off the deep end here. We're just... And I'm reacting. You know how to press my buttons. That's what you do.

You press my buttons because you know I'm gonna freak out about stupid stuff like this. Literally just wanting to know the Twinkie where you found it. No! That's stupid. I would not keep an unwrapped Twinkie. Okay, now we know. No, we already knew.

You're the only one that would ever ask that question. Okay, I'm... Seriously, we're never talking about food again. Anyway, the Twinkie is still in my cupboard because it was wrapped under my bed.

And I don't like to throw away food. And there was a time in my life when I ate Twinkies on a regular basis. Maybe I'll save that for Super Bowl Sunday. Can you imagine?

That's a great Super Bowl snack. You're not allowed to weigh in anymore. You have lost your privileges talking about Twinkies.

No. Come on, you can't do that to me. I'm sorry, I can't do what to you? No, we're... No.

This is where I pull rank. You're no longer allowed to talk to me about junk food or Twinkies. Because you... Ew!

Just ew, Jay. Something is wrong up here when it comes to snack food. Like, you and I are not. We're not.

No, we're not. I know all the good snack foods, so... You wouldn't eat them if they were unwrapped in a store, right? If you came across one in a store and it was unwrapped, you wouldn't be like, Oh, that's a great idea. It's actually easier. It's more convenient.

I'll just take the unwrapped one. Someone did the hard part. Something's wrong with you. Like, some things.

Some things are wrong with you. Okay, we're gonna do QBs. See? Now I'm so upset that I can't even have a regional... I can't even... Never mind.

Totally unrelated to Twinkies or QB News, I need some new Sharpies. I'm going to get some real colorful Sharpies for the Super Bowl. It's After Hours with Amy Lawrence on CBS Sports Radio. Yes, we are down to two.

The Eagles and the Chiefs. I've got people telling me that's it. I'm not watching the Super Bowl.

I'm going to make a movie night out of it. Uh-huh. I don't believe you for a second. Because you want to see what Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs might cook up against Jalen Hurts and the Eagles. Travis Kelce and his brother hosted Jalen Hurts recently on the New Heights Podcast.

Why? Well, because Jalen is the quarterback that stands behind Jason Kelce and takes those snaps. So he was talking about Patrick Mahomes, meaning Jalen. And it was kind of fun to hear the reaction of Travis Kelce.

I never topped it up with you in person. And I have a lot of respect for your quarterback. Tell me about him. Like, what makes him him? I would say very similar in terms of the motivation that he has to be the best person he can be. He's an ultimate competitor. Just a guy that it doesn't matter if you're playing cards. It doesn't matter if you're playing pickleball in the backyard, whatever it is, golf.

It doesn't matter what it is. He's competing and he's trying to be the best him at everything. And if he's not the best over the course of the game, he's going to find a niche. He's going to do as much as he can mentally to gain as much knowledge about something. Or use his knowledge from another, you know, sport or altercation or situation. Situation, experience. Exactly.

And adapt it or put it into the situation at hand. So he's beating you at all that? I got that same juice. You know what I'm saying? Who's winning the pickleball?

Actually, it's probably an even fight. He's got me on the ping pong table. Golf? Yeah, I still haven't beat him in golf. Yeah, all the greats, whether it's quarterback or any other position, are extremely competitive for better or worse. To the point where sometimes it's abrasive to the people around them.

But that drive and that passion definitely keeps them going. So that is the new Heights podcast, the Kelsey brothers with Jalen Hurts. I dare say that at some point we will want to hear what the Kelsey brothers have to say about being in the Super Bowl together. But there was not a new edition of their podcast on Monday.

It comes out on Wednesday. But this edition with Jalen Hurts was it was fun. It was a lot of cool material and joking around. So then Jalen was asked about what it's like to take snaps from the other Kelsey, Jason. That's a very unique way of snapping the ball. Every quarterback that I've ever played with hates how I snap the ball. Is it getting to you quick?

Fast. It's up on you. People always ask me, why is your stance so low? I'm like, I got to be in an athletic position to catch the ball when it's coming. I remember my rookie year when I came in, like I come in, I have a couple plays here and now throughout the game. And I go in there and fumble the snap because I just wasn't ready, like I wasn't in the position. Some of them were bad snaps. I'd snap it fast and I'd snap it fast because I want my hand back.

That's about it. I got stuff to do. He always asks me, like, how was that snap? Or if there's like an MA in the backfield or something like that. I know he's thinking about if he snapped it good or not.

I'm like, hey, you good, baby? Can I just tell you, Jay and I have both kind of wondered about why Jalen Hurts gets down on the defensive slide position. Like he's playing basketball when he's about to receive a snap. And then hear Jason say, I got things to do.

I need my hand back. It's true. I've always felt like Senators were at a huge disadvantage because they not only have to have their hands underneath and behind to snap.

But then they have to hurry up and get their hands back in position to block. So that's really fascinating because I'm a total nerd. But Jason Kelsey, Travis Kelsey, the new heights podcast with Jalen Hurts as a precursor to what's to come for Super Bowl Sunday.

Andy Reid, not only is he facing his former team, but he will be one of the head coaches for the first Super Bowl ever to feature two African-American quarterbacks. And he was asked about that on Monday. The biggest thing is they're really good. And I think that is a tribute to the kids. Kids is. Yeah. I mean, that's unique. It is.

It is unique. I don't ever look at it that way. I just I look at I don't really care what what color you are. You know, you're a good player, which at that position takes a tremendous amount of time and effort. I can really appreciate that.

And I've never been one that really looked at the color part of it. Where I grew up, we had everybody. Everybody was a part of part of the equation. And that's a someday I hope that's the way it all works. And as we go on, you'll never have to be asked a question like this again.

I mean, you know, I understand why you're asking it for me. Absolutely. But, you know, it's a it's a tribute to the kids.

I mean, they're both of them are phenomenal players and I'm happy for for both of them. I suppose if you're if you're Andy Reid, you're allowed to call them kids after the life and the football that you have seen is after hours on CBS Sports Radio. We'll hear more from the kids, a lot from the kids these next two weeks. We did not hear from Joe Burrow with the Bengals exit interviews on Monday, but we did hear Zach Taylor about Joe Burrow and this looming contract negotiation that starts now internally.

And so, again, just wrapped up with the team today. And as you go forward, you start talking about Joe and all the other players that are up. So Joe Burrow, one of those quarterbacks that will not be in Phoenix. The other, of course, is the Niners and Brock Purdy, the last we knew, a torn UCL, which is painful, of course, and really delays his development in the offseason. He is hoping to avoid surgery.

The team is recommending it, but he is getting a second opinion. One more. And this is a former NFL QB who guess it was a news dump with the Cowboys mutual parting of ways for Kellen Moore. And the news was revealed over the weekend, kind of dwarfed by Championship Sunday.

But here's Ian Rappaport with extra details. Kellen Moore, who did not get fired but did part ways with the Dallas Cowboys, literally had a job in about five minutes back while he was still employed with the Cowboys. The Los Angeles Chargers reached out, requested permission to speak with Kellen Moore, knowing there was a chance.

In the right circumstance, he would agree to go to another place. And Mike McCarthy, the Cowboys coach, would allow him to do that. The Chargers started talking to him.

The conversations went well. It's very clear Kellen Moore was going to be the Los Angeles Chargers offensive coordinator. That is exactly what happened, was announced a couple hours later after Brandon Staley informed all the other candidates. And really, this was one of the more coveted coordinator jobs around. Why? Well, you get to work with Justin Herbert.

Yeah, you do. But not just Herbert. Herbert, who averaged, I think it's just shy of 300 passing yards per game. The passing offense for the Chargers, third in the league. But they were middle of the road in points per game, so there is room for improvement. Keenan Allen, Mike Williams, Austin Eckler.

There's a lot there, and so good for Kellen Moore to start fresh. It's After Hours, CBS Sports Radio. The listening you love is on the free Odyssey app. Your trusted local radio stations. Coverage of your favorite teams. Live news from your hometown.
