You're listening to the JR Sportbrief on CBS Sports Radio. You're listening to the JR Sportbrief on CBS Sports Radio. It's the JR Sportbrief show on CBS Sports Radio. I'm being joined by super producer and host Dave Shepherd.

I'm being joined by you, all the listeners across North America. And we're coming to you live from the Rocket Mortgage Studios. Whether you're looking to purchase a new home or refinance yours, Rocket Mortgage can help you get there for home loan solutions that fit your life.

Rocket Can. Thursday Night Football. The Kansas City Chiefs, their record is already 2-0 because tonight they beat the Chargers who fall to 1-1. Kansas City wins 27-24 in Arrowhead. Hell of a game. First half of the game sucked if you ask me. Chargers at one point led 10-0.

Then they led 10-7. And then Patrick Mahomes, he's like, I got another touchdown for you. Patrick Mahomes, how about this? He threw a third quarter touchdown. Here it is, courtesy of the Chiefs Radio Network. Snap to the facemask of Mahomes.

Furious rush. Mahomes throws it. Ladies got Justin Watson. Catch in the end zone. Touchdown. Kansas City burning J.C. Jackson. Justin Watson gets free and Mahomes finds him for a 41-yard touchdown pass. And so Patrick Mahomes threw two touchdown passes tonight and they even got a little bit of help from the defense. Rookie, Jalen Watson, he was able to intercept a Justin Herbert pass at the goal line and this pretty much put the Chiefs in front for the first time. 24-17.

Listen to this. Chargers go without a huddle again. Right side intercepted on the left side. Picked off at the goal line at the 25-yard line. Picked off by Watson. Watson could go all the way. The seventh round pick. 20, 15, 10, 5, 6, 7, 8.

All the way. The seventh round pick. 20, 15, 10, 5, Jalen Watson cooking hamburgers in Augusta, Georgia. Then he went to Wazoo and now he gets a 100-yard pick six for a touchdown.

Kansas City at 10 29 to go in the game. Hey, Shep, you think you think he has oxygen like a tank next to him when he does the call? No, no. I think he's young enough he can get away with it.

He can bypass that. No oxygen. No. Okay.

It's fun to listen to, man. You ain't lying. He is. Speaking of oxygen, Andy Reed, after the victory, he said it's a big win.

Maybe he needed oxygen. All in all, a great win for whatever reason. We like to keep it real close with these guys and and they're a heck of a football team. So glad we came out on the right end of it. Yeah, keep it close.

Yeah. But Andy Reed, his record is now 16 and six against the Chargers. The Chiefs have now won 14 of their last 17 meetings.

It's nice to keep it close, but we know who comes out on top. And so the Chargers, and sure, it was early in the game, they blew a 10 10 nothing lead. Justin Herbert gets driven into the ground and despite all of this, he still throws three touchdowns.

One of those touchdowns after he was driven into the ground and he had rib x-rays, had x-rays on his ribs, I should say, after the game. And head coach Brandon Staley, he's like, I ain't worried about this man. Listen.

It's okay. It was a tough game and you're not going to see a quarterback in any level of football play tougher and do more for their team and will their team to give them a chance than him. There's nobody that can do what he can do.

Nobody. He showed a lot of guts. He showed us what he shows every day that we're never out of the fight. And he brought us back and gave us a chance. I guess Justin Herbert has given him 3% of his contract that, I mean, damn, that's, that's a lot of love and why not?

Justin Herbert could potentially be his meal ticket as a coach. And Justin Herbert really was cracked. Like this man, they had the colon injury timeout. He was down for a few minutes.

He walked off of the field in obvious pain grimacing. He was only out for one play and went back out there. And then later on following that series and another one, he threw a touchdown.

It just, it wasn't enough. Chiefs were able to get the ball back on an onside kick attempt by the Chargers and they just ran a clock and that was all she wrote. Patrick Mahomes, knowing that they only scored seven points in the first half and still walked away with the W, he says, oh, hell yeah. When it comes to the second half, we got the hell ongoing. Pretty much the first half we were trying, we were trying to protect the ball fast and do stuff like that. I just thought in the second half, we just, we trusted our O-line. We gave them a few chips, a few receivers hitting tight ends, kind of doing stuff to help them out. I thought they did a great job of giving me that time, enough time to make those throws. But that's a great defense.

And I thought we battled and found a way to get the win. No, he still sounds like Kermit the Frog. He does. Sorry. I was in your ear. That wasn't over the air when I said that. No, I know that. I was well aware. I know that.

I'm just saying he still sounds like Kermit. 855-212-4CBS. It's 855-212-4CBS. Ezra, calling from Atlanta. You're on the JR Sport Brief Show. Hey, how you doing, JR?

Good. I saw the game tonight and I feel, I feel actually sorry for Justin Herbert because he's such a great quarterback, but he's under Staley, where you look at Patrick Mahomes under Reid, you can just see like, just the difference in coaching, you know, just the difference in game management. Because after that interception that they took away from the Chargers, you know, a smart coach would have called timeout, got his defense together, you know, just to get, because you can see the Charger players were all just combobulated. They were like flustered.

They were like, what? That was an interception. And in my opinion, it was an interception.

I think Kansas City had a little bit of home cooking. And in that moment, Staley needs to call a timeout, get his troops together, and just like bring them back down to focus, you know. And a player or two later, Patrick Mahomes steps into the pocket and throws a beautiful dart. You know, and it's just like one of those where it's like, that's not even the Chargers fault. That's not even the secondary's fault or the defense, in my opinion, because they are playing Patrick Mahomes. But that's the coach's fault.

You know, there was a timeout. And to be honest, we're talking about, you know, you're on the goal line or you're in the red zone or within the 10-yard line. Man, you know, I know you want to pull a Pete Carroll and make your quarterback win the game so he can, because he's got to earn the spotlight that we've all put on him. Man, sometimes you got to be conventional in those situations and just, you know, run the ball, you know. Well, I say that there's so many times, and thank you Ezra for calling from here in Atlanta, like let's not always act like someone throwing the ball at the goal line automatically goes the other way. Like sure, what do we want a team to do?

Be a battering ram every time they're in a goal line situation. Like a pass is going to get thrown. That's just the nature of the game.

There's less space there for the corners. They can go ahead and jump the route. So yeah, it's going to happen. But when it does, we can't just all go, oh yeah, you got to run it. You got to run. Like they do most of the time.

They just so happen to pay for it. And for whatever reason, it's just always the Chargers. They're always good enough. They're always good enough to almost, and this, how many almosts can we have with the Chargers?

Now they got a quarterback who's, he's better than everybody they've had. Robert is calling from Arizona. You're on CBS Sports Radio. Hey, JR. First of all, you didn't miss one warehouse, Menards is the other home improvement store. Where's that one at? I think it's only like up in like the like northern states, I think, like midwest. I'm not sure.

Yeah, it's like the third biggest one. Oh, my apologies. Anyway, I wanted to ask you, if say Herbert's out like six weeks or something, you know, worst case scenario, if you were the Chargers, would you actually trust Chase Daniel or would you call it Phil Rivers? Oh, my God. Phil Rivers? Oh, man.

Wow. Phil Rivers? Philip Rivers? Who's calling that guy?

Let me do a quick Google search. Hold on. Been in a leak now for, uh, three years. No, it hasn't been three. Yeah, because, well, uh, no, Eli's three. Phil's two.

It's two. How many, how many kids does, not Nick Cannon. Well, Nick, Nick, Nick Cannon. JR, yeah, in fairness, though, like he does get, he does get hated on a little too much, Philip Rivers. Oh, Philip Rivers? Yeah, like he is one of the most underrated quarterbacks in the history of the game. There's no question about that.

No. He, he, who did he have? He had Antonio Gates, um, and Danian Tomlinson and no defense.

Yeah, sure. And he never had a great coach. Sorry, Marty Schottenheimer. He was a little past his prime at that point. Sure, sure, but his ass ain't coming. And Phil's top seven in everything.

Sure, but he ain't coming back. He has nine kids. Nine. That's what you were looking up? Yeah. That's it. Yeah, what the hell did you think I was looking up? That may be why you do come back, because he can't make that, I mean, listen, you were, you're raising a family of nine out of 11, nine kids, who knows how many pets. I mean, you can't just do that on what, uh, what he's doing right now, which is coaching, right?

He's not even coaching at the NFL level. Google, Google can't even fit all nine of the kids on one page. That's fair. One kid, two, three, four, five, six, seven. And there's two other kids that are not named here because there's just nine of them. I think Nick Cannon has nine kids now as well. I think, uh, Phil Rivers and Nick Cannon, they could be friends. Phil Rivers ain't leaving them kids. He's probably, isn't he coaching some of them or something like that?

This is a whole new regime with a new head coach. Why would you want to look at Phil Rivers? Let him stay in, uh, where is he? Not, not Texas. He from Texas. Or somewhere else. I don't think he's from Texas. Let that man stay home with his nine kids. Tom Brady has three kids and he doesn't want to stay home.

I mean, I guess there's a chance for everybody. It's tough. Frank is calling from Atlanta. You're on CBS sports radio. What's up?

Yes. Uh, first of all, I'm a first time caller. Let me just say this right quick. Listen, man, I've heard everybody give Justin Herbert his props.

Well, guess what? Justin Herbert is not that great a quarterback to me. And the reason why in my opinion is because Justin Herbert has been Super Bowl tested. He haven't won Super Bowl.

He haven't won a playoff game. And I heard Bart Scott tonight on the radio. Formerly, father agents say that he would put him above passing my home. Are you kidding me? Bart Scott? I hope you can hear this.

I hope you can hear this, Bart Scott. Are you kidding me? Justin Herbert don't come nowhere near Patrick Mahone. And that's why Patrick Mahone with the game that he played tonight. Because like you said, he lit the scoreboard up against the Cardinals. Still won the game.

So if Justin Herbert was so great, why he didn't win tonight? Thank you. Okay, well, thank you, Frank, for calling from Atlanta.

Wow. Justin Herbert has probably outside of Mahone's. And yeah, this is a different league.

Everybody is throwing a rock around. But still to the degree that Justin Herbert has? The man threw last year, 5,000 yards, 38 touchdowns.

Charges went nine and eight. His first year, yeah, he has only played two seasons. This is his third. His rookie season, 4,300 yards to 31 TDs. He's not that good?

In comparison to who? Trevor Lawrence is in a crap situation, but I know that guy is like, whoa, this is what the NFL is? Look at some of the other young quarterbacks. What are they doing?

What have they done? There ain't no question marks about Herbert. There were no question marks about this man from the first time he stepped out there onto the field.

It's like, okay, wow. Everybody talked about whether or not he was going to be ready. And yeah, he looks ready to me. Troy, calling from Portland. You're on CBS Sports Radio. How we doing, brother? We are doing excellent.

Yeah, man, I just want to talk about tonight's game a little bit. I had Keenan Allen hurt tonight, but I was also going against Mike Williams. And who would have thought that three points last week, 28, 27 points this week. And I just got to say, I would have thought that because the AFC West is the best division in football right now.

There's no ifs, ands, or buts about it. Russell Wilson and the Broncos will bounce back after the Seahawks lost. But I just want to know what you think. Who do you think is the best division of football?

And what do you think about the game tonight? I would agree with you. I mean, this is, this is, I mean, I would agree with you. I mean, this is, this is, I mean, I've been talking about the game first of all. I said the first half of the game put me to sleep. I'd love to see what the status is of Justin Herbert.

Head Coach Brandon Staley says that he is okay. And that is to be seen when it comes down to the division. Yeah, it's tough.

You just pretty much went through it. The Chargers beat the Raiders the other day. I think the score there was 24 to 19. Here we have tonight, the Chargers have a whole lead early in the game against the Chiefs and they still lose. The Denver Broncos, I don't think they're going to be going for 64 yarders every single game.

Ultimately, they will go out there and try to utilize Russell Wilson to the full extent of his capabilities. It's tough. You used to look at the NFC West and say, oh, this is tough going out there. And now with Russell out in Seattle now kind of knocked down a peg, unless you fully believe in Geno Smith, AFC West is tough. To think about it, not every team is going to go into the playoffs in the AFC West. It's tough. Kansas City certainly will.

What happens after then? We'll see. 855-212-4CBS, Chris is calling from Oklahoma.

JR, as usual, great show and your analysis, thought on. This is one of those San Diego things. It's kind of like saying, well, it's Cleveland. Also, the Phillip Rivers thing that made me chuckle. I mean, it's almost as plausible as they're going to call Drew Brees up and say, hey, we never should have traded you to New Orleans. Come back for us and we'll give you a chance now. So like I said, I have to chuckle on that call. Yeah, well, maybe Drew Brees and Phil Rivers can do rock, paper, scissors to fill in for Herbert if he has to miss time. There you go.

Like I say, your analysis, just dead on. Like I said, San Diego, it seems like no matter who they've got, they just, you know, the football gods never smile on them or whatever. I mean, like you say, it's San Diego.

That statement there almost says it in itself. I hope Herbert comes back, unlike the other team. I mean, you know, Herbert comes back unlike the caller you just had.

I think, like you say, he is, I think, the best quarterback they've ever had. But it's San Diego. Nothing more can be said, really.

You heard a lot of feelings. You know, they were in Los Angeles. Oh, I know.

I know. And I mean, here I am stuck in, you know, Oklahoma. We have no professional team. You're not a Dallas fan? Dallas, right? No. No, no, no, no. And I'm not even a Kansas City fan. I actually happened to, I'm an old guy and I started watching football in the early 70s and there was this team out of South Beach that just couldn't seem to be beaten. And unfortunately those fish hooked me and I've been with them ever since.

Oh, no. By the way, what are your thoughts on Miami this year? I mean, is Tua finally going to, you know, mature into the Alabama Tua or is it going to continue, you know, the Tua last year?

I think there is a chance that they can get into the playoffs. And I think what you saw this past Sunday against the New England Patriots was as great of a start that you could ask for, not even from, there's a lot of folks on Miami who have something to prove. You know, Tyreke Hill has done a lot of talking about Tua Tonga-Valoa. And so there's pressure there. And even though he's not going to feel it because he just goes where the wind takes him, there's pressure there on Tyreke Hill being away from Patrick Mahomes to help elevate this team.

There's obviously pressure on Tua Tonga-Valoa. People have been talking about him and his and his hip since he entered into the NFL basically as a wounded player. There was all the times he was relieved by Ryan Fitzpatrick. And then you have a rookie head coach in Mike McDaniel. You know, Brian Flores was able to do a great job at the end of last season, kind of pulling the defense together, pulling the squad together and going on that run. Well, now Coach McDaniel, it's his job to pull folks together. So I think it was a great start. We saw what needs to happen. And a lot of it is, hey Tua, you got two ridiculous playmakers on, on both sides. That's, that's not even counting Guseki. Come on, man.

Throw the ball a waddle, let him get 50 million yards after the catch and then do the same thing with Tyreke Hill. So I think they're in a very good position right now. And I would not be shocked if they went ahead and went to the playoffs.

Let's see if they can hold up. And, and of course I said, you know, some prayers upstairs for, you know, maybe there'll be that dark horse team that makes it, but America, did you just hear that this man, like I said, your analysis is so spot on. This is why I listened to you. Your humor, your analysis on all sports, or at least from what I hear, I mean, you are, you almost are an intuitive guy, I think, sir.

Well, hats off. And I got to get in the car and drive. So JR, great show. Gonna keep my ear to the radio. Get you next time. Thank you, man.

Drive safe out there. I'm also wrong too. I'm a human being. I just try to make sense.

Part of me being a human being is understanding I'll be wrong. It's the JR sport re-show here on CBS Sports Radio. I'm gonna take a break. I'm gonna go ahead and count how many kids Phil Rivers has. He ain't coming back.

He needs to watch them kids. And speaking of coming back, I mean, hey Shep, have you seen all these stories? Every day there's a new story about Tom Brady.

Oh, I thought you were talking about Roger Federer potentially coming back, but we know he's done. Nope. Yeah. Brady. He's been the news lately.

Yes. You know what? We're gonna, we've been saying this. We're going to talk about Roger Federer tonight. The football game took over. We're going to talk about Federer. We'll talk about Tom Brady briefly. I don't want to get in this man's life, but hell it's there.

And, uh, we're going to keep on rolling. It's the JR sport re-show CBS Sports Radio. You're listening to the JR Sport Brief on CBS Sports Radio. You're listening to the JR Sport Brief on CBS Sports Radio. Hey JR, how are you?

It's great to, uh, to talk to you. You know, I listen all of the time while I'm out delivering my Uber side hustle. Call in now at 855-212-4CBS.

It's the JR Sport Brief show, CBS Sports Radio. Shout out to everybody out there making them deliveries. Make sure you deliver something to me on a Peachtree Street.

I'd love it. Yeah. There's a lot of people listening to Atlanta just conveniently drop something off on Peachtree. Yeah. About a station.

I'd appreciate that. But anyway, tonight the Kansas City Chiefs, they take care of the Chargers 27 to 24. The big news out of the game is, you know, what's up with Justin Herbert? Obvious rib or midsection injury.

And he was still able to go back out there and throw a touchdown later in the game. And he had an x-ray after, and we just have to await word on what it is. Head coach Brandon Staley says, I'm not worried about it. Okay, fine. And then I had a caller who said, and I don't think he was serious. People say wild things though.

You never know. It's like, Hey, what do you think about them calling Phil rivers? I'm like, man, cut it out. This is a different regime, different coaching staff. Ain't nobody calling Phil rivers.

Either coaching a child, shoving a bottle in a kid's mouth. This man's busy. He needs to call Tom Brady and tell Tom Brady to stay home. Oh, and it really stinks, man. Every day there's a new story about Tom Brady and his, his family and you know, what's going on and in his relationship and living in different home. It's just, it's not fun.

You know, it's not fun. It makes me go, damn Tom Brady. When he came back from his 11 day vacation, he had to stand up there and go, listen, I'm 45, man. I'm dealing with a lot of, you know, what in my life, but I mean, wouldn't, wouldn't all the stories add up. This man sat around on his own podcast on Monday, and he talked about how beat up he's feeling after the game against the Cowboys. Like, yeah, he said, oh, I got bruises and I got cuts and doesn't feel the same.

Yeah, you 45 brah. What you think it's supposed to feel like? It didn't feel good when you were 25. What it, what it's supposed to feel like now? Ain't no TB 12 going to give you younger bones.

You still get cracked the wrong way and turned to dust. It was only earlier this year that Tom Brady, yeah, we talk about Phil rivers and his nine kids. I think Tom Brady has a three of them. Tom Brady, remember this earlier this year on his let's go podcast, he was talking about his family and, you know, even his daughter popped up in the episode. Listen, you know, we can all decompress a bit. It's been six straight months of football every day consumed by, you know, day in and day out football.

And I think now it's just some time to spend some time with my family and spend some time with, you know, my kids. And, you know, hi, baby. I can't hear you said hi, baby. Hi. Psyche.

He wanted to play football instead. Like you got all these championships and what do I know? And then you got three $375 million waiting on you in the broadcast booth. I hope the Buccaneers have a good season. I hope so.

Not going to play the Cowboys every week. 855-212-4CBS. Tom is calling from Alabama. You're on CBS Sports Radio. Good morning. It's what about 130 where you are. I'm in Alabama.

I'm on central time just an hour earlier. Couple comments. I wanted to remark about Philip Rivers. He's a great player. He's from Athens, Alabama, North Alabama. Played at NC State.

Yes. And prolific college career. He now resides in Mobile. He teaches high school football coaches rather. In the end, he's got a bunch of kids. I think some of those are foster kids.

But be that as it may, we're going to raise them. However, he ain't coming back anytime soon. He'll have to work the rest of his life probably. But, you know, as to Justin Herbert, you know, shoot, the guy's 24 years old.

He's gutsy. I mean, he's a former MVP of the conference. Played for Oregon. MVP also of the Rose Bowl in 2020. Yeah, we know he's good. Yes. The guy's 24 years old.

I mean, they got 30 years on him. Okay. And I don't want to go into it, but I've had both knees replaced. Back and hip surgery. Shoulder and rotator cuff surgery. What does it have to do with Justin Herbert? Everything. He's going to come back. I ran three Boston marathons after that. Oh my God.

Well, well, come on, Tom. Listen, we know he is 24 years old and we hear you. You are 54.

That doesn't change. 64. 64. Oh, I thought you said you were 30 years older. No, you're right. 40.

40. My bad. Oh, okay.

Okay. Well, well, it's a slight difference, but listen, that doesn't change the fact that he still has ribs and they can still break. So yeah, we know he's tough, but you running five and 10 marathons with a cracked rib and no kneecaps.

Okay. Jr had done a rub, but I had nine broken ribs. I had a Drew Brees type injury, two liters of blood drain. I came back and ran marathons.

Slow down, Tom. Did you run the marathon with the nonbroken ribs? They were still broken. When you ran a marathon? Yes.

Okay. Well, though you had nonbroken ribs while you ran a marathon. They were broken.

They were broke. Did you have both kneecaps when you ran a marathon? No, I did not. Did you have a sprained ankle when you ran a marathon? No.

I'm not impressed. It's the JR Sport Brief Show here with you on CBS Sports Radio, 855-2124 CBS. That's 855-2124 CBS. You are listening to the JR Sport Brief on CBS Sports Radio. You are listening to the JR Sport Brief on CBS Sports Radio. Hey, I just want to say I appreciate you taking my call and I love the show and always respect your opinion. Call in now at 855-2124 CBS.

It's the JR Sport Brief Show here with you on CBS Sports Radio. I did mention Roger Federer. Oh, you're going to hear from him before we get out of here. Trust me.

Also, by the way, I want to show love. Jalen Watson is the man who went ahead and was able to snatch that interception off of Justin Herbert and run it back for six. This man was a seventh round pick. Not only was he a rookie, I think a sixth round, I don't know. Did they stop seven?

Doesn't matter. Basically not drafted. He was working out of Wendy's just not too long ago in college and congratulations to him. He's big time in the NFL now.

At least for this moment, hopefully he can continue it. He talked about his interception after the game. Listen. We knew they liked the switch routes and the high red, so me and Justin, we worked together. The ball just ended up in my chest and I took it home. It's a surreal feeling. Just so grateful and blessed to be in this position. I didn't even know what to do when I got in the end zone.

That's why everyone seen me just standing there, but it's a moment I'll never forget. Good for him. I hope he has many more of them. And then also someone whose moments have basically come to a close. Roger Federer, Swiss cyborg.

We called Justin Herbert a terminator. He got busted in the ribs and came back to throw a touchdown even though they still lost. Roger Federer is done at 41 years old. One of the greatest tennis players of all time. Finishing his career with 20 grand slams. Too many knee surgeries.

That's it. Too many. You're not 41 coming back with creaky knees. Nadal is 36. He has 22 grand slams. Djokovic is 35. He has 21.

And the way these guys are playing, I don't think anybody would be shocked if they picked up a few more. His first slam, Federer's was in 2003 at Wimbledon. And he was dominant for a stretch. Really. Multiple stretches. Dominant.

And so he was on the social media today and he told everybody, I'm out. I am 41 years old. I've played more than 1,500 matches over 24 years. Tennis has treated me more generously than I ever would have dreamt. And now I must recognize when it is time to end my competitive career. This is a bittersweet decision because I will miss everything the tour has given me. But at the same time, there is so much to celebrate. I consider myself one of the most fortunate people on earth. I was given a special talent to play tennis and I did it at a level that I never imagined for much longer than I ever thought possible.

I bet you Tom Brady looks at that man and goes, hey man, I play a contact sport and I'm 45. Get your stuff together. Who knows? Serena Williams talking to Good Morning America yesterday. Serena, man, she will just listen. Listen to this.

I mean, you never know. I always say I just been saying that, you know, I think Tom Brady started a really cool trend. Retire, retire and retire again.

Yeah, so you know, and the way he did it. Yeah, well, please, Serena, unless she's going to come back and play more tournaments on the way to a grand slam. Just don't come back. Like don't, I'd love to see Serena win another one, but don't take us through that journey again.

Unless you're going to play more tennis consistently. 855-212-4 CBS. Bob is calling from North Carolina. Go ahead, Bob. Hey, how are you, sir?

Excellent. Go ahead, shoot. And I gotta tell you, first time listener, I am enjoying your show immensely. I love your straightforwardness and man, you shoot from the hip. That's the way it's supposed to be done. Well, thank you, man.

Go ahead. I wanted to call, I called about your comments versus the football versus baseball broadcasting. And I'm a baseball broadcaster.

I do college, I'm professional and it's tough doing it alone. It's tough trying to make the game interesting when it's not. Try calling a game when it's 24 to three in the seventh inning and you've got three innings left to go. It's tough to make something happen that's going to hold people's attention. But the one thing that you can never do, and this is why I think the guy from the Yankees is a little bit corny. Yeah, he's been around a long time. Probably made some great calls, but when you start trying to make your broadcast about you instead of the game, I think you're out of bounds.

Okay. Well, that is, that has been a fair criticism of, of his for a long time that Sterling makes it about him, but it's the Yankees. Like nothing is going to Trump the brand of the Yankees. It's just, it's not.

Nobody does. The Yankees is with, that's it. And the best of his calls and Shep, we talked about this man for the corny home run calls. It's when the Yankees actually win and not just win a game, like win a world series.

It's like, he hasn't been able to say it since 2009. Do we have an example of, of like when the Yankees win? Do we have one? I don't have a world series, but we do have a Yankees win. Well, let's hear it.

Let's hear it. Ball game over. Yankees win. The Yankees win. You see now on the level of Yankees win, you can tell the importance of the game. Like that wasn't just a normal victory.

That was, there was something important about it. And then when he actually, or if the Yankees win the world series or when they have, he'd give you a, you know, ball game over and the world series over and then he'd go into the whole Yankees win thing. So like that I enjoy, but in particular, I hate the judge-ian blast.

It just, it's ridiculous. Curtis is calling from Buffalo. You're on the JR sport brief show. What's up, Curtis? Hey, what's going on, Jay?

This is my first time ever calling any radio show. I appreciate you. I work overnight.

I'm not at work tonight. I'm going through some things with personal things, but I just want to talk about Tom Brady. Tom Brady, I'm a Bills fan, born and raised. I'm 56 years old, born and raised in Buffalo, but Tom Brady is the greatest quarterback ever to play the game.

He fell into a system that, you know, just, I mean, fit him. I mean, definitely, you know, and I can tell you the Bills lost in Super Bowl. I want to talk about the Bills also. The Bills lost in the Super Bowl because of bad coaching. We got out coached in four Super Bowls, paid for in the black, you know, but I'm a constant Bills fan always.

It's 30 years later. At least your team is favored this go round. Well, yeah, but you know, being the age I am, I can't put my heart into it no more. Oh no. I wish, I wish for the best.

I hope, I really hope they get one. You know, Jay, I'm gonna keep it real. My daughter just passed away last week.

I'm sorry to hear that. You know, I appreciate it. You know, I've been hearing this from other people and all this, you know, but it is what it is, but that, that will make it special for me for the Bills to win this, this year, you know, real talk. They're in a, they're in a, well, maybe, listen, man, they may take you on. I used to see the, the Bills, the old Bills, Cornelius, but I just see them in the clubs with me and you know, they might, you know, you know, I mean, they got outplayed mentally.

Well, I think I've seen them Kelly thing. Well, hold on a second, Curtis. I'm gonna say this and I'm, I gotta get ready to, it's not even hit a break. I gotta get ready to shut up in a minute. So I'm gonna say this. Okay. You should, you should probably take solace that Josh Allen spends more time doing nice things for other people than I think hanging out in the club. So, Hey, maybe, maybe things go your way this year. It's a different era. I understand.

Oh, well, I would say that there's, there's a lot of people hanging out in the club Curtis. So we'll see. We'll see what happens. We got a real quarterback because Jim Kelly wanted to hang in the club. You know, I'm the Bills fan. I saw what was going on. Jim Kelly has shown a lot of love to Josh for being the next guy, but Kirk, I hope for your sake, the Buffalo Bills, they take you on a great ride.

I think they can, man. Enjoy the rest of the games. It's the JR Sportbreeze Show here with you on CBS Sports Radio. My four hour game is done. I'm going to be back with you tomorrow. 10 PM Eastern time, 7 PM Pacific. We are going to go through every game.

Well, the ones that matter. And we're going to get you ready for another week of NFL football. If you miss me, you can always follow me. I'm on Twitter. I'm on Instagram.

That's at JR Sportbreeze. And I'm, I'm ready to hear what happened to Herbert and his ribs. Maybe by the time I come back with you tomorrow, we'll have a full update. Okay. Thank you so much to super producer and host Dave Shepherd. And thank you to you people listening all over North America, including my friends who called me from the back room of the garden section of Home Depot, the JR Sportbreeze Show here on CBS Sports Radio. It's a wrap. Don't move. Amy Lawrence. She's coming up next.
