You'll have to decide on your own. I know that our Facebook page is replete. That's a good word.

It's a great word. Replete with messages and greetings for producer J's birthday. I don't know whether or not he checked it out, but there are plenty of messages on our Facebook page, which is cool.

So you all are invested. And I often say J is far more popular on the show than anyone else. And since there's only two of us, you know who I mean. So he had a good birthday, had a dinner tonight with his family, including mom, because it was mom's birthday, which means mom shares a birthday with Luka Doncic. I'm sure J's mom is thrilled about that. They're birthday twins. And he and David Sampson just miss being birthday twins.

Wow. This week in February is pretty popular for birthdays and for births, births. But actually, as we head into leap day, haven't seen February twenty ninth in four years. There are people who are celebrating their birthdays on Thursday for the first time in four years. Technically, first time in four years. So to those of you who are leap year babies, February twenty ninth, I asked this question of my kiddos in church on Sunday and one of them had a mom who was a leap year baby, I think. Anyway, kind of fun to think about your unique spot in history. And we had talked about this, oh, gosh, at the beginning of February, I think.

So for the leap year babies, it's a special day on Thursday as we bid farewell to Wednesday and march forward into a Thursday. Thanks for all your messages. Good to hear from you on both Twitter and Facebook. You can find me a law radio and then our Facebook page is named after the show, as is our YouTube channel. I am back in studio tonight and then I'm gone on Thursday night.

That happens to be a work move, though. The three to six Eastern Time, noon to three Pacific on Friday is where you will find me sitting in for Zach Gelb, who is taking a couple of days off. So I'll be doing the afternoon show, depending upon where you are. It's either noon to three Pacific or three to six Eastern Time on Friday, which is fun and all because I like to stretch my broadcasting muscles every now and then and work with different people and get out of my comfort zone. That's good. All that's good. The part that sucks is they keep asking me to fill in on Fridays, which means that instead of having my weekend begin at six a.m., my weekend begins at six p.m. Eastern Time, which is just wrong.

I think it's conspiracy theory. I don't know why they would do that to me. Actually, I think it's probably because it's easiest for me to. Do I guess theoretically my show for the first few nights of the week and then finish up on a Friday as opposed to going from nights to day back to nights.

So, yeah, I understand why logistically it makes sense, but it is a bit of a sacrifice to sacrifice. Come on, man. Seriously. So back in studio tonight.

Off on Thursday night, but you'll hear me on Friday afternoon here on CBS Sports Radio Network or wherever you find your podcasts. People all the time. It's so funny. We see the threads or the posts on our social media. As affiliates come and go and I have no control over that.

In fact, I don't even know when it happens most of the time unless you all find me and let me know. But as affiliates come and go, as they change formats or they lose local shows or add local shows, maybe it's a different type of programming, whatever it happens to be. It's a constantly changing landscape.

And so we gain affiliates and then we lose some and then we gain some and then we lose some. It's just part of being in network radio. And when those of you who are confused about why you're not hearing the show anymore post on our social. It's it's really cool to see other listeners chime in with here's how you can listen to Amy and here's how you can find Amy.

So you guys are doing the work for me. Thank you for that. It's after hours with Amy Lawrence, our phone number 855-212-4227.

That's 855-212-4CBS. It is hard to believe that Luka Doncic is only 25 years old, but he celebrated his birthday in big time style in Toronto. Screen right. Luka goes that way. Met by Olenek. Picks up his dribble. Backhand pass on the skid.

Gets to Washington. Back to Doncic. Four to shoot and three on the drive. He's fouled by Olenek. He banks it in. And Luka giving the and one to go to the line for the and one wrap around pass deflected by quickly taken in by Josh Green. He'll drive and throw it back out to an open Washington for three short look at the offensive rebound, the stick back and the triple double.

The sixty seventh of his career, his 11th this season and the Mavericks with a one twenty nine to one sixteen lead. Everybody played great today. We have a great team today. Our defense was at the top. So we just got to keep going like that. Just play aggressive on defense. Get out on transition. And that's it.

And that's it. Well, and that also includes Luka on this tear. He's already the NBA's top scorer. In fact, I've been floating him out there, floating him out there as a dark horse MVP candidate. I know a lot of players out there have gaudy offensive numbers this season.

Heck, 150 points is barely worth blinking at anymore in the NBA, which is kind of a bummer. But he's leading the charge in the NBA. He's in the top seven or eight in all the offensive categories. And it's not as though he's a ball hog, though a lot of the shots do run through him. But he had 16 assists in this victory on the road in Toronto. And this was back to back for the Mavericks. 30 points to go along with the 16 assists and the 11 rebounds.

His 11th triple double of the year, as Jason Kidd calls it, just a normal game, a triple double. And then he says, I guess 25 means he's he's still going to be really good as he gets older. But it is hard to believe he's only 25. I feel like he's been around forever. And it is true that we've had him now for quite a while. He started in the league when he was a teenager. And so he's already logged quite a resume in the NBA. This is season number six for Luka Doncic. Reminds me of Sidney Crosby going back to one of his serious neck injuries. One of those injuries that kept him out for, or maybe one of the concussions, that kept him out for an extended period of time.

And it was one night when I was thinking about his tenure and what he'd done to that point if we didn't see him again, though he was determined to return. And somehow he wasn't even 30 years old at that point, even though it felt like he'd been in the league for decades. So Sidney Crosby and Luka Doncic share that, starting really early and making an impact immediately. So happy birthday to Luka Doncic. He will not go out in honor of his birthday because he's tired, just wants to sleep. Why is that, Luka? Is it 25 some milestone birthday? I feel like 40, so.

I don't know. Oh yeah, a lot of games, a lot of minutes, a lot of professional basketball. Yeah, a lot of games, a lot of minutes, a lot of pro basketball.

And not just in the NBA, he's played obviously for his own country, his national teams. And for him to be carrying the load that he does for the Mavericks also means that that pressure is not just physical, but it's mental. These are long seasons.

Now, granted, he would like them to be longer. He would like to see the Mavericks make some deep runs into the postseason, and they're sitting in a good spot. Now, I need them to show a little something, something down the stretch. Otherwise, he's not probably going to be one of the top candidates for MVP. Right now, they're in the seven spot, but they're only a half game back of the Suns and the Pelicans. So the Mavericks have won eight of their last 10. He and Kyrie have found a nice rhythm.

Kyrie's playing really well, had a big fourth quarter in the game against the Raptors. And the Mavericks are 11 games above 500 now, but everything in the Western Conference is so tight. From teams one through 10, there is only an 11 game separation. So 11 games back are the Warriors, who right now are the team in the 10 spot. They won, what, 11 of 14, I think. They're sitting in the 10th spot in the NBA, the Western Conference. And they're only 11 games back of the Timberwolves, whose lead has been trimmed since the All-Star break. And so, yeah, for the Dallas Mavericks, it's not quite as drastic as, you know, I talk about this a bunch whenever we get into baseball and the hope that spring's eternal. It's not as drastic as Mike Trout having not been on that playoff stage in a decade now and having never won a postseason game in his career with the Angels. So it's not that bad. It's not that stark, if you will.

That's a good word for it. But certainly the Mavericks need to take advantage of Luka's prime. Would you call 25 his prime? I'm sure he has a lot more to give.

But as he says, he feels 40, right? They have three playoff appearances since Luka joined them. And in 2019-20, as well as the following season, they were eliminated in the first round, both times by the Clippers. In the 21-22 season, so going back to the spring of 22, they beat the Jazz in the opening round. Then they beat the Suns in Game 7, if you remember that. That one was a 4-3 victory for them. But they were taken out pretty handily by the Warriors in the year that the Warriors went on to win their most recent NBA championship.

Right, so that was 22. They did not make the playoffs last year. So we've seen one deep run by the Mavs since Luka came on board.

Again, not quite as stark or drastic as not seeing Mike Trout in a decade on the playoff stage. But still need a little more of Luka. He's one of the faces of the league. He's an international superstar. And it seems like every time he steps on the court, not only is he a triple-double threat, but he's breaking records because of how early and how talented the second he came on the scene. So congratulations and a happy birthday to Luka Doncic. Not nearly as dramatic as what we saw with the Lakers and Clippers.

This is nuts. We'll let you hear how it sounded, and then we'll get into some of the postgame reaction. The Clippers were leading the Lakers 98-77 early in the fourth quarter. LeBron one-on-one against Plumlee. LeBron, three-pointer.

Good again. Two-point game. 106-104. Lakers trailed by 21 in this quarter. LeBron with eight to shoot.

LeBron head down, driving. Got it to Rui. Another three.

Good. Lakers lead. 109-106. Three minutes remaining in the fourth. The Lakers have come from 21 down.

Oh, it was some kind of a rally. It was stunning to see the Clippers fall apart the way they did. Not only did they give up nearly 40 points in the fourth quarter, they also turned the ball over seven times.

And I don't know, kind of looked like they had a bit of a deer in the headlight look. LeBron with five to shoot. LeBron to Russell. Three-pointer.

Good. Timeout Clippers. Lakers 1-14. Clippers 1-08.

Hardened. Brings it into Kawhi. Drives toward the basket.

Fallaway 10-footer. No good. Rebound LeBron. Ahead to Reddish.

Reddish to the rim. Game over. Slam dunk.

One second left. And the Lakers have shocked the Clippers in the final Laker Clipper game of the regular season. John Ireland on Lakers radio. Oh, and earlier Chuck Cooperstein on Mavericks radio.

My fault. I love Chuck. Forgot about identifying Chuck. So in this game, LeBron James has 19 points in the fourth quarter. But did you hear those calls with John? He also has the assists on the final two buckets for the Lakers to seal this victory.

So yeah, he was busy. He's always busy scoring. But he has the assist to D'Angelo Russell on the triple with a minute and 12 seconds to go. And then he's the one that throws the ball to Cam Reddish down court for Cam to dunk it with a second left.

Now at that point they didn't need the bucket. They were up by two and there was only a second to go. But LeBron gets the last rebound. Prevents the Clippers from having a second chance opportunity. Finds Cam heading the other direction. Get the ball poppin. So the Lakers with a stunning comeback against the Clippers who I know they were the home team quote unquote were supposed to be comfortable there.

And also supposed to be able to protect a lead of that magnitude. But they give up a 29 to 8 run by the Lakers in the fourth quarter. He is who he is. He got hot. You know, down 19 to start the fourth.

He comes out. He hit I think four threes and he's got us going. Made some tough shots, some tough finishes and got us back in the game. Got us back in the game, that whole group, you know, Jackson, TP, Bron, you know, they got it. They got it going for us. And I mean, also come in and able to finish the game.

But he went into his little crazy mode and was able to carry us to victory and making the right plays towards the end when they start blessing them. Just a zone that you can't really describe it. Wish you could stay in it forever. But obviously it checks out, you know, as the game ends. But, you know, during it, you know, you don't feel anything. You just have a superpower, I feel.

It's a superpower, he feels. And Anthony Davis calls it his crazy mode. Davis there on Spectrum Sports Net. And yes, LeBron not only scoring, but facilitating. And the Clippers completely fall apart. Tyloo, what do you have to say for your team? It's a tough loss because we, you know, up 21 points. But this is a good team and when you don't take care of the basketball and you don't do what you're supposed to do, you know, you're going to lose.

You know, and so we can see that, you know, and so. But the game's over. Gotta get ready for the Wizards game on Friday. As tough as this loss may be, you know, it's over. You know, it's one game. Play well for three quarters.

Didn't finish the game. You know, I never let one loss or a bad loss, you know, take away from what we've been doing and what we've built. The Lakers are putting together a nice run, too, around the All-Star break. They've got seven victories in their last 10 tries and they are closing in on the King.

So right now we've seen this script before. You've got both the Lakers and the Warriors in the 7-10 tournament. That 7-10 split. They're sitting in the 9 and 10 spots.

I don't know if it'll stay that way. As I say, they're reeling in the Kings who are in the 8 spot. But it's really not impossible to think about both those teams climbing out of that 7-10 split and moving up into the top six. A lot of it will depend on how these final 26 games, 25-26 games go.

Let's say you've got, we'll use the Lakers as an example. They've now played 60 games, exactly 60 games. They're 32 and 28, which means they have 22 to go.

So I guess, let's say 22-23 maybe. Yeah, the Warriors have played 57 games. It's interesting that their schedules can be so different at this point. So there's a stretch run here. The playoffs start. That's a good question. Usually second week in April.

Let's Google it. But for the Lakers, this is a huge victory for them. The play-in tournament begins on the 16th. And then the 20th is when the main bracket kicks in. Well, it seems kind of late this year. The conference finals don't start until, oh, maybe it's because they had that weird in-season tournament. I think that has something to do with the Lakers having more games.

True, good point. May 21st and 22nd is when the NBA, I'm sorry, when the conference finals begin. The NBA finals don't start until June 6th. That's Bob's birthday. Anyway, that's when the finals begin.

That is late. So Memorial Day weekend could end up being conference finals. It actually should end up being conference finals because Memorial Day weekend is, well, so the 25th is that Saturday. I know this because I have a wedding to go to and Memorial Day is the 27th. And so, yeah, we'll have conference finals over that holiday. That seems like a long way from now. I will have actually had a two-week trip to Hawaii between now and then.

That honeymoon could not come soon enough. All right, coming up, a little more from the hard court. In college hoops, a couple of significant headlines. And also, we're going to dive into some of the chatter from the combine because it's not just a combine and a showcase for the next generation of NFL players.

Nope, it's also a football convention. You know, we need one of those because we haven't had one of those in forever, like two weeks ago. How in the world can we go a whole two weeks without hearing from coaches and general managers and agents in the NFL? We can't miss you if you never go away. I actually said that to Bob, who was gone for five days teasing him. So when he came back, he said, did you miss me? Was I gone long enough? Yes, yes. It actually, I had a little bit of PTSD from long-distance relationship. It was too long.

Five days was too long. On Twitter, ALawRadio, on our Facebook page too. Glad to have you with us.

It's After Hours with Amy Lawrence on CBS Sports Radio. For the past 20 years, you've enjoyed the refreshing tropical lime flavor of Mountain Dew Baja Blast. So in celebration of this milestone, we're bringing Baja Blast in stores nationwide.

Yeah, Carvana makes it super convenient to shop whenever, wherever. For real? That's a ton of car options. Yep, and these are all within my price range. For really real? You can afford that?

Now Clark fires a three right wing and got that to go. And now passes Lynette Woodard of Kansas who had the scoring lead when it was the AIAW as Clark 33 points.

This is After Hours with Amy Lawrence. By now Kaitlin Clark is a household name and she continues to up the ante. Now of course what she and the Hawkeyes really want is another chance at the Final Four.

Another opportunity in April to be national champs and we'll see. That's the call on Learfield IMG and as they continue their march through conference play, this time against Minnesota, Kaitlin continues her climb up the record books. Up the ladder to the pinnacle of women's college basketball and actually could end up being all of college hoops.

But you heard the name Lynette Woodard and she was a star back in the late 70s, early 80s. Had 3,649 points in her illustrious career and Kaitlin Clark passed her. So it's considered the major college scoring record. Kaitlin now has 3650 points or passed her with the 3650.

Another triple double for the Iowa sharpshooter and oh my gosh the Hawkeyes put 108 points on the board against Minnesota. So it was a banner night for her even as she's closing in on the record that is held by Pete Maravich. It's pretty awesome to see her play and like I was just saying about Luka Doncic and the postseason stage, feel the same way about Kaitlin and looking forward to seeing her and her teammates once we get to March Madness.

It's after hours with Amy Lawrence on CBS Sports Radio. I think one of the things I love about Kaitlin and also her coach Lisa Blue, is that they understand the significance of what they're doing. It's not just about them, it's not just about her and her feats and her records, but they're very cognizant of the history and really do want to bring attention to the growth of women's basketball but also want to remind people of how a lot of the women's records and women's athletes from decades back were not considered legitimate or weren't considered to be part of the big picture. The NCAA didn't want to recognize women and what they did back in the 1980s and you know I think it just speaks to the foundation that these players have laid for us to have opportunities to be able to play in environments like this in front of crowds like this. So I wouldn't have the opportunity to be able to do what I'm doing every single night if it wasn't for people like her and obviously there's so many great players across the board so I'm just really thankful and grateful to have those people that have come before me and yeah it's super special you know obviously she's one of the best all times could certainly score the ball but I think it just shows you know title nine is not that long ago, 50 years is not that long ago and I think it just still shows the room that we have to improve and where women's sports is going is a really great place. Tonight is the night of the real record. The AIAW record that Lynette Weddard held that was the real one you know for some reason the NCAA does not want to recognize the basketball that was played prior to 1982 and that's wrong. We played basketball back then they just don't want to recognize it and that hurts the rest of us that were playing at that time you know I mean there's no reason why that should not be the true record and you know at a school like Iowa that has been so rich in AIAW history I just want to make sure we acknowledge Lynette's accomplishments in in the game of basketball but congratulations to Kaitlyn for being the true basketball leader in points tonight.

And so both Lisa Bluder and Kaitlyn kind of thinking back you know that she'd already been acknowledged as the all-time scorer in women's college basketball history and and that's under the NCAA but this goes back this record by Woodard goes back to the days of the AIAW shoot why did I always get this wrong AIAW and it's before the NCAA was established and doesn't want to incorporate those previous records right and I love that Lisa said hey we we actually played basketball back then we played the same game just because there was a different organization or different governing body doesn't mean those records shouldn't count and Iowa has a long standing tradition and a lot of support for women's college basketball so that's why Lisa was calling it the true record is not her passing Kelsey Plum that's not the one that should matter now she's got the record because it incorporates all of women's college basketball so congratulations to Kaitlyn quite a feat and she's not done there's still the all-time college basketball scoring record which is currently held by Pete Maravich on Twitter A Law Radio and also on our Facebook page. Mikol Hardman he puts the Niners and the Jets on blast in a podcast that he does earlier this week I guess it wasn't exactly sure when it came out but he was he was ready to talk ready to talk. Mikol wanted to be heard and so the Jets respond also we've got the latest from the Chicago Bears and what they might do with the number one overall pick Dan Quinn new head well former Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator new head coach of the commanders giving credit to Micah Parsons and others for his second chance at being a head coach and oh Scott Boris he wants you to know why the free agent market is moving at a glacier's pace 8-5-5-2-1-2-4-2-2-7 that's our toll-free line and then on Twitter or on our Facebook page.

McKinnon is in it running back first down and goal to go. Play action fake right side draw touchdown Kansas City. McColl-Hardman. McColl-Hardman with the catch on the right side a three-yard touchdown pass in overtime Kansas City wins the game 25-22 and the Chiefs kingdom has started its own history class. I don't know if it was this week man I played with Cole for a long time man he's always ready for the moment now and he's he's someone that continues continues to practice hard and get better and obviously that receiver rotation we were bouncing around a lot of guys all year long and those guys continue to work and I mean just like last Super Bowl man it's like you never know who's gonna be it's about everybody being ready for the moment and and he was he was ready for that moment in a couple big plays.

This is After Hours with Amy Lawrence. Mecoll-Hardman felt like talking this week on the Pivot Podcast which is hosted by former pro athletes Ryan Clark, Fred Taylor, Channing Crowder. It's one that makes headlines on a fairly regular basis and Mecoll-Hardman not only catches that last touchdown the walk-off touchdown of the Super Bowl but he did it in a season in which he didn't spend the whole thing on the Chiefs roster. Remember he was with the New York Jets so when he does this podcast sure he talks about the Super Bowl in the overtime and actually heard this really extensive answer really extensive explanation I should say on the podcast in which he talked about the play design and why they had drawn up or called for a man play or play against man defense when the Niners were in zone and how it worked even better than they could possibly expect. It kind of goes through the whole thing and it was really fascinating but he puts the Niners on blast and he puts the Jets on blast and he's created a few waves now with the Jets of course but he did not hold back in this interview on the pivot. It's After Hours with Amy Lawrence on CBS Sports Radio. First the Super Bowl and you can go and you can find some of his comments or his explanations online. He talks a lot about Patrick Mahomes.

Gosh what is there that's still left to say but he gives the perspective of the Chiefs sideline and what he claims is Mahomes on the sideline after the Niners win the coin flip and elect to receive the ball in OT. They changed rules because of us you know what I'm saying so we we know the rules everybody gets a chance to score and when they kick that field they get a chance to score. And when they kick that field goal I don't know why they took the ball first of all that's a crazy thing but when they kicked the field goal Pat was like oh yeah it's over with.

You might be going yeah y'all would pack up it's over with. You didn't pack the ball oh you fit the score. So he doesn't say what a lot of people have turned to is their hot take which is the second that the Niners chose to receive they were losing.

I think that's ridiculous that's just ridiculous. If the Niners end up scoring a touchdown there it puts a lot of pressure on the Chiefs but if they also score a touchdown well then you end up in sudden death. The Niners defense was gassed for those of you who watched inside the NFL the mic'd up version of the Super Bowl. Nick Bosa is on the sidelines and he's along with a bunch of other defenders wearing oxygen masks and he pulls off the mask to say to a teammate this is not fun at all. I mean they were having to deal with Mahomes and a resurgent Kelce and of course Isaiah Pacheco they're having to deal with those guys coming at them and I know it was a shorter stretch of time but fourth quarter in its entirety so yeah they get the ball back they do a two-minute drill in the fourth quarter the Chiefs get that game tying field goal but they've been on the field a bunch the Chiefs have been putting pressure on them there in that fourth quarter so Bosa and the rest of the defense are sucking wind and he's saying this is not fun at all fourth quarter of the Super Bowl.

I have no issues I know it's an unpopular opinion or an unpopular perspective maybe it's the minority report but I have no issues with them receiving the football. Either way that's not what Mecole Hartman says he doesn't say they lost when they chose to receive no he said Pat is running up and down the sidelines which Pat is wanting to do and he's chirping about how they're going to win because they're going to score a touchdown right so after the Niners have to settle for a field goal in OT and it was great defense by the Chiefs yet again after that happens well then he says all right we know we're gonna win. Pat said we're gonna go win this game and I like that confidence from the offense. It's after hours here on CBS Sports Radio. Now, Mecole is catching the ear of the NFL for his comments about I don't know if his comments about it I guess you could call it his communications though he's not specific about it but communicating with the Chiefs while he was still a jet remember he had been on the Chiefs before and so he wanted to go back to Kansas City when it wasn't working out in New York but you're not allowed to have contact with another team's player or coach when they're under contract it's called tampering and so if Mecole was in communication with the Chiefs in some way there is a chance that the NFL could find this to be tampering. I tell you right I was so checked out like it's over I already talked to V just Pat like well come get me boy like what are y'all doing what are we talking about like man come get me. I love how the two former NFL players are laughing are laughing at that Ryan Clark and Fred Taylor and again don't know if he actually did reach out to Pat or if Pat responded but if there was communication some type of recruiting which he can't they can't really do because he's under contract but if there's some type of behind closed doors deal or communications or the Chiefs were actually talking to him when he is under contract with the Jets that could be considered tampering or could be tampering. Now Hardman played with the Chiefs till 22 remember and won a couple of Super Bowls but then he was a free agent so at the beginning of last season he just signed the one-year deal with the Jets and they thought he could slot in there as number three another option depending upon the packages they're using because they were supposed to have Aaron Rodgers so they were looking for viable options in the passing attack but he loses his punt return his punt returning job excuse me to the rookie remember how the rookie Xavier Gibson had that punt return TD for the walk-off win in the season opener same game that Aaron Rodgers got hurt and me Cole did almost nothing in the passing attack now to be fair not a whole lot of Jets receivers did much right Allen Lazard didn't either mean that they really didn't mean that they really didn't have a downfield passing attack because they lost Aaron and Zach Wilson and some of the other guys they were using didn't facilitate that downfield game but me Cole he's not just focused on that aspect now he's really all about how the Jets culture stinks y'all treat certain guys that shouldn't be treated like they should be treated and I just feel like it's not an established coaching staff there as well like you just got new coaches after they came in there's no standard there it's like everybody do what they want to do and defense have a more of a stabilized standard with that with the coaching staff on that side so you could tell the defense got a standard but the offense is like all right we'll just figure out it's an Aaron show like Aaron do Aaron do you know what I mean but then when Aaron go down it's like we don't know what to do but this is that same course that they just was out of a job the previous year then average get a new job no for a fact I'm better than him for sure like I ain't trying to you know where I know I'm better than him better than him too Garrett Wilson the only person y'all should just be like hey so I have no problem with y'all putting around Garrett Wilson for sure I know I don't care like that's fine but when you come to certain other things like come on like I don't understand why I'm not in a rotation with that y'all never gave me a reason as to why either this is my thing was y'all can't tell me about winning I've been to four Super Bowls in five years you know I'm saying now you feel me but beforehand I've been to four MC championships I've been to three Super Bowls I've won two of them like I know what winning looks like right I know what winning is so y'all keep telling me certain things it's like I'm not going for that like because y'all not doing it right like we got hammers on the ground you know got no discipline people feel like it's too many individual egos in this locker room or whatever and I'm telling them like that's not going to get y'all to win it's not going to happen as I say Mecole felt the need to express himself he was he was on quite a tear on the pivot with Ryan Clark, Fred Taylor, Channing Crowder now obviously his comments have gone a bit viral the Jets have responded and Mecole's even taken to social media to try to clarify never had talks with KC before the trade so can we clear that up the Jets handled my trade on their own and did the right thing by sending me back to KC but what about his claims now he fingered Nathaniel Hackett remember Hackett got bounced by the Broncos the year before and was brought on as the offensive coordinator to work with Aaron Rodgers you'll hear from the Jets next it's after hours of the season it's after hours with Amy Lawrence CBS Sports Radio when something happens to your car you might say but what you really need to say is something that can actually help like a good neighbor State Farm is there and just like that State Farm is there to help you file your claim right on the State Farm mobile app so just remember like a good neighbor State Farm is there State Farm Bloomington Illinois okay picture this it's Friday afternoon when a thought hits you I can spend another weekend doing the same old whatever or I can hop into my all-new Hyundai Santa Fe and hit the road with available H-track all-wheel drive and three-row seating my whole family can head deep into the wild conquer the weekend in the all-new Hyundai Santa Fe visit hundayusa.com or call 562-314-4603 for more details Hyundai there's joy in every journey 2024 Santa Fe available early 2024
