If you need to know what it takes for a home to fit your budget and your family, Rocket can. Thank you to super producer and host Dave Shepherd. Thank you to everybody listening all over North America. On the free Odyssey app, on your local affiliate, on a smart speaker. Damn it, I don't know how you listen. I'm just glad you're here.

Sirius XM, welcome. I get started at 10 p.m. Eastern, 7 p.m. Pacific every single weeknight. And it's been fun. I'm here in Philadelphia, city of brotherly love, and I'm feeling the love.

Everybody wants me to eat a cheesesteak and run steps. I'm just here minding my business. I'll be speaking with students at Drexel. Should be fun. Media for the Movement Tour should be a lot of fun. But right now I'm talking to you. 855-212-4CBS and that's at JR Sport Brief. I had a chance to stop by the Rocky Steps today.

I did not run them. Had a chance to hang out by the Rocky statue and it's the biggest winner in Philadelphia. And we're going to go ahead and get to those Eagles. They are some some big time winners.

We'll talk about the Eagles next hour. I'm just so thrilled right now to see Jalen Hurts having all of the success that he's having. He basically was on a prove it deal last year. He's on another prove it deal. He's proving that, hey, he is the quarterback. None of that Jerry Jones nonsense.

Well, my God, we might put in the backup. Good stuff. So we talked about Jerry Jones. Talked about NBA Media Day, all of the stars that have started to chat and run their mouths and. Guys talk about how great a shape they're in. James Harden said, I am and I'm in great shape.

I mean, you got Zion Williamson down in New Orleans. Even Zion is like, yeah, I'm in I'm in great shape. And Zion looks it. He doesn't have that chubby little boy look about him. He just looks like. So he'd been in the gym because he cut the baby fat. His face looks different is his build is he's more cut. It's like, damn, Zion looks like he looks like a defensive end getting ready to play basketball.

I want to see what he can do for a full season. And so, yes, Zion is one of the folks saying, yeah, folks, I'm I'm healthy. And even he said, now that I'm in shape, I'm I'm shocked at some of the things I can do. Listen to this is one of those feelings where I'm in the gym and something happens, I'm like, oh, man, I can really do that.

Oh, that's different. But now I learned a lot from nutrition standpoint, from working out standpoint, how long I need to be in the gym and most efficient way to work out. Yeah, man, stay away from the beignets, stay away from the gumbo.

Crawfish, stay away from it all. In moderation. Anyway, he says, heading into this season, not only is he amazed at what he can do, he says, I'm feeling good. I feel like I'm in my best right now. I feel like I'm moving faster, jumping higher.

I just I feel great. Is it necessary for him to jump any higher? A shot. This is the same damn guy at Duke. We literally saw him burst out of a shoe. Barack Obama was courtside. Obama was courtside when he bust out that shoe. What are you saying? Obama has something to do with it.

What I'm saying is that's Diane Williamson for. You got presidential elite figures literally and figurative has shown up courtside to watch you play as an amateur. You imagine what's going to happen when he hits his prime in the NBA? I don't know. I hope he's healthy enough to see it. He is one guy out out of everybody that we have in the league right now.

I am very interested to see what the hell we get out of Zion Williamson because he looks like. He what's the guy from I'm terrible with the movies. What's the guy that everybody wanted these stupid Infinity Stones from the from from the Marvel movies?

What's his name? Hugh Jackman? No, that's Wolverine.

Man, I know Wolverine, the bad guy, the bald dude from outer space that whooped all they asses. Come on. Jason Statham? No.

What are you talking about? I mean, I'm thirty five. I don't watch Marvel movies. That's disrespectful.

I'm 35 years old. I want no classic cinema. No, what you just said is disrespectful. You just pissed off a lot of people, Shep.

People our age do not watch Marvel movies. Here we go. I'm just saying.

No, it is. Oh, my goodness. I love Marvel movies.

I just haven't seen them. Oh, my goodness. Wow.

Wow. Everybody loves Marvel people, 50, 40, 60, 70, 80. When I talk about great movies with friends and family, you bring up Shawshank, Godfather and Good Will Hunting and On the Waterfront. And even you want to go classic cinema, Gone with the Wind, Wizard of Oz, even, you know, you want you want to talk about like more modern day movies. Boys in the Hood is a great one. Jerry Maguire. We don't talk about Marvel movies like that's something they do at conventions.

I'm not trying to I'm not I'm not trying to be disrespectful. That's I don't think a lot of people watch Marvel movies. I just think they're in the tech world.

So it gets it gets it gets it gets distributed and disseminated on social media. So it actually is overhyped and a lot more, you know, around that it should be. I'm not trying to be all right on this. You're not digging yourself a hole, man.

I'm not digging anything. I'm just being objective and accurate. Stan Lee. OK, Stan Lee, I know. OK, so these characters that he created 50 and 60 years ago. He passed away a few years ago, Stan Lee. Yes, he did. No, I'm not trying to disrespect him. No, he's he's an icon. A lot of these characters that he created in the universe that he created, a lot of it was was due to social issues and superpowers. And he wanted to kind of display that in comic books.

So it's not necessarily so much about the movies, but Marvel, man, it's the you know what. And I can't remember the guy's name. And I'm going to I know people are tweeting me.

Let me let me go ahead and check Twitter right fast while I'm on the air, because I will have the answer. People know exactly who I'm talking about. He's the guy that came from. Thanos. See, I know it. Shout outs to Marshall Harris. A million people.

Marshall holding it down. Yeah. Come on. Thanos. You know, I'm talking about the bald head dude who snapped his fingers and everybody disappeared. I know Thanos as much as, you know, Spider Spider-Man three Tom Holland. Tom Holland.

Yes. Well, listen, I know Spider-Man. I know Peter Parker. I know the hobgoblin. I know marriage. I know all of them.

Doctor, Doctor Octopus. I know all of them. I don't know these people who play him. I don't care less about him. But I digress like Robert De Niro. Yeah, I like Robert De Niro. Was he in Spider-Man?

No, he wasn't. But I was just saying you do appreciate quality thespians. I can't even tell you the last Robert De Niro. The last time I saw Robert De Niro.

You want to know what? He was in a DC movie. He was in a Joker.

How about that? No kidding. You didn't see the Joker? Oh, that's right. With the funny. He's not the funny guy. I know you're talking about.

Joaquin Phoenix. Of course I did. Yes. Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Robert De Niro was in that movie. Briefly. Yeah, until we know what happened to him at the end.

I won't say anything. I don't know what happened to him. Oh, you don't know what happened to him? He lived.

He became mayor of Gotham City. That's what happened. Yeah, we'll go with that. Yeah. Well, anyway, Zion Williamson.

And thank you to every person who tweeted me. Let me know about Thanos. Zion Williamson looks like Thanos. Zion Williamson looks like he will snap his fingers and a whole paint will turn to dust. He's a freak. There is not an NBA player that I'm more interested in seeing what they do this season than him.

The man goes to the basket. He can pass. He has shown the ability to shoot. Is he going to do it on a consistent basis? Probably not.

The sky's the limit. And I know it's always so cool. Every generation you go, oh, we haven't seen a player like that. And we didn't see a guy like this.

I haven't seen another bird growing up. I haven't seen another Jordan. We got one LeBron that's come through over the past 20 years. We've had one Shaq. I've seen one Hakeem. We had one Kareem. We've had one Magic.

We've had one Greek freak. Can I say five to 10 years from now that we've had one Zion or am I going to say we saw Zion and then his ass got broke? Derek, Derek Rose, this man, herky jerky, cross you over.

He was so dynamic that it didn't even if you look back at some of his clips, you'll look at it and go, am I really shocked that Derek Rose, that his own body betrayed him? It's like there's no way in hell you could just play like that every day, just season after season after season. And and we've seen the results. So I want to see what Zion can do now that he looks like he's in shape.

And he looks like Thanos and even the Pelicans. They have a great team. I know C.J. McCollum got a two year contract extension. Good for him.

And they got one of the best scores in the game. And Brandon Ingram, nobody talks about that guy because he does what Jerry Jones should do. And Brandon Ingram just doesn't speak.

He doesn't talk. So high expectations. I want to see the Pelicans do good. The city deserves a good basketball team, especially after Anthony Davis decided to leave. Anyway, the Pelicans can look forward to some greatness. That's why I love Greg Popovich. Greg Popovich spoke to the media.

He pretty much said, listen, don't expect a damn thing from us this year. That's what he said. I probably shouldn't say this. But I'll say it anyway.

What the hell? Nobody here should go to Vegas with the thought of betting on us to win the championship. And I know somebody will say, gosh, what a Debbie Downer. There's a chance.

What if they work really hard? It's probably not going to happen. But that's not the point. And very honestly, I could care less. You all know what I care about.

So I won't bore you to death. But the point is to develop this group and give them the best possible opportunity to have long NBA careers and enjoy the hell out of it. Listen, there is not an I don't think there's another coach.

In North America who could get away with saying that. He basically said, we go suck. We're not winning a we're not winning a championship. Like, don't don't hold your breath that that we're going to do some damage here.

We're here for development. I mean, who can wake up and say that? Only him. Bill Belichick doesn't even get away with that. Robert Kraft is breathing down his neck going, hey, Bill, what the hell am I spending all this money for? Do better in the draft. The John T. Murray is done is he's gone. He's now with the Atlanta Hawks and.

You'd be hard pressed to just name four guys on the Spurs roster. So, listen, Greg Popovich was also asked, you know, why are you still doing this? And he said, my paycheck.

Say, when you get older, you just tell the truth. You're just honest. Good for Popovich. He said, what we all know, what are we expecting from the Spurs? Nothing.

Not a damn thing. Eight five five two one two four CBS. That's eight five five two one two four CBS. Brad is calling from Colorado Springs. Go ahead, Brad. Hey, guys.

Love your show. And I called in about, you know, Jerry Jones business style. But when you guys went off on the on the debate on Marvel and classic movies, that was that was awesome. Oh, well, what do you say? You think Marvel movies, you think it's crap is for kids?

Not at all. You know, I mean, I I know a lot of the guys who make the Marvel movies. I write stuff like that. I've actually presented screenplays to them.

I love classic movies and of all the movies he mentioned on the waterfront. It's one of the best movies ever made. It's gut wrenching. When a brother has to pull another brother off a meat hook, that's about as visceral as it gets, you know. I remember the good son with Macaulay Culkin and the mother let the other.

She let her son fall off the cliff. Was that good? What movie? The Good Son with Macaulay Culkin.

You remember that? I didn't see it. Oh, well, man, you're not a movie connoisseur. Come on. What a guy you are. That's telling the truth.

What else you got? I love movies. I love movies. But, you know, the thing I the thing that I did want to say about Jerry Jones is regardless of how much money he makes, that's what everybody talks about. He didn't cost his city any money. And most of the other NFL owners, they should follow him because they have the city build the stadiums for them. And then 20 years later, threaten them. Hey, man, you don't build us another one. We're moving. And it's getting old. You know, I mean, if they're going to pony up and be a NFL owner, they should own their own stadium. Yeah, I think we're starting to see.

And thank you, Brad, for calling from Colorado Springs. I think we're starting to see more of that, because what you have is owners who are saying, hey, we don't just want to own the stadium where they can obviously bring in concerts and make additional money. People are building entire developments. It's it's real estate surrounding the arena, surrounding the stadium.

It's well, let's put them all here and let's put some living here and let's put some shopping here. And there's just so much like these these these owners aren't just I own the sports franchise. They want to own a piece of the city.

And in order to do that, I mean, you've got to have a couple of people in your back pocket, but they want to own as much as they can. They don't want to rent out a damn thing anymore. 855-212-4CBS. Lou's calling from Rochester. What's up, Lou? Hey, JR. Your show's excellent.

That debate you guys had over the classic movies reminded me of as if you guys were in a Larry David episode. OK, well, highly entertaining as your show is. I just wanted to say that your take on Kyrie Irving there was dead on.

It needs no further commentary. So I just applaud you, man. Oh, well, thank you, Lou. I appreciate that. I like what I said about Kevin Durant.

I said he's Kevin Durant is like the mystery box from some Super Mario Brothers, except for this mystery box. Never mind. That's that. That joke will get me suspended.

I won't do that one. David is calling from Florida. You're CBS Sports Radio. What's up, David? Hello, JR. How are you? I'm absolutely amazing. What's up?

Once in a while, I've been listening to sports for years and years. Once in a while, you come across somebody who is Michael Jordan and just captured here. And that is you.

Well, thanks, Michael. You're unbelievable. He got about a he's a he's a foot taller than me. He's he's got a couple of billion dollars.

People are wearing his crap everywhere. How am I Michael Jordan? Yes, you should be getting paid 50 or 100 million dollars. You are amazing. You are very good.

I even love when you yell at the people. Also, the Baltimore Ravens are going to be a very, very good team. I think this year after you get J.K. Dopin's back. Also, Macaulay Culkin. I played I saw that movie, but I played basketball with him. He's amazing basketball player.

What? How how how how long ago did you play basketball with Macaulay Culkin? I played basketball with him probably 19 in the 90s in New York City.

A really nice, really nice workout facility in New York City. I played against him. OK, I saw a photo one time with Michael Jackson and Macaulay Culkin. You weren't there with Michael Jackson, were you? No, my boss went and I wasn't allowed to go. What with Michael Jackson? Well, it was my girlfriend, Mindy, and she worked with my boss, Stephen.

Stephen Chalfo. But I wasn't allowed to go for some reason. And they went to his house and no pictures of him and Macaulay Culkin all over the place. Wow. We'll be happy you didn't go to Michael Jackson's house.

OK, I heard it's a wild place. But this Macaulay Culkin was some basketball player. He didn't miss a three point shot. Wow.

Well, maybe he had a different calling than running around setting traps for burglars. David, thank you, man. Appreciate you. One more question. Are you in California? Am I in California?

No. They don't hear you in California? Yeah, they hear me all over California. Los Angeles, San Diego.

I mean, everywhere. Well, I want to make one shout out. Hope J.K. Dopkins plays, but I love you, Dakota. Good night, J.K. OK. Thank you, David. You're excellent. I love you. Well, thank you.

Stay awake. Thank you. I'm so happy that you didn't. I'm glad that you weren't allowed in Michael Jackson's house because that that had been a hell of a story to tell. I would open up the phone lines to anyone who's ever been in Michael Jackson's house, but I think we get a bunch of liars on the line.

Eight, five, five, two, one, two, four, CBS. Shep is laughing. Hey, Shep, you've been in Michael Jackson's house. Oh, but I know the interview you're referring to that blew up that spot. I got that joke. It's like I got the Michael Jackson jokes, which apparently went over David's head. Now, listen. Was it what a place called Neverland? Yeah, something like that.

We had animals. I think Michael Jackson would want to say never mind. Eight, five, five, two. We're going to never mind. It's a break. Eight, five, five, two, one, two, four, CBS. I'm going to get some more of your calls. You know, Greg Popovich just said, listen, folks, don't expect us to win a damn thing when we come back from break. I'm going to get to your calls. I want to tell you about a current team in the NFL that they also wear similar colors to the Spurs.

You shouldn't expect a damn thing from them as well. They won a game. You know who it is. It's the J.R. sport brie show on CBS Sports Radio. Have some fun when we come back. You're listening to the J.R. Sport Brief on CBS Sports Radio. I'm going to get off the radio and just want to let you know I commend you for what you're doing, J.R. That's great what you've been doing, the speaking engagements and talking to these college students and stuff.

We need more of that. Call in now at eight, five, five, two, one, two, four, CBS. Oh, yeah, Drexel. Drexel University.

I'm going to see you in the morning. Drexel University media for the movement or encouraging students in their media journeys. Also letting them know in the nicest way possible not to be a jerk. Treat people like like like people really treat people like people.

Simple terms. Shout out to Special Olympics, Experian media for the movement tour. We rollin' on. We're going to roll on here.

Eight, five, five, two, one, two, four, CBS. Right before we went to break. I shared with you a clip of Greg Popovich letting everybody know. Don't waste your money or your time with the Spurs. OK, I put my own spin on it, but Greg Popovich basically said, don't go to Vegas and bet on us to win the championship.

It's like, yeah, I know. It's like, who are these guys? Who are these Spurs?

Who are these people? Tim Duncan's not there. Manu Ginobili's not there. He's in the Hall of Fame. Tony Parker is not there.

I can go back further. Where's David Robinson? Where's Avery Johnson? Where's where's Mario Ellie? Sean Elliott. Where are these guys at?

Gone. I know Greg Popovich. He basically hired himself as the coach. Not a lot of people remember that.

But they out here tankin'. They want to get that guy. Wimbayama. Did I say his name correctly, Chet Wimbaya? What's his name?

From France? Sounds right. Victor Wimbaya. Something.

Jayar, here's what you need to know. What? Jakub Podol is their starting center. Yeah, I know Jakub. Jakub was riding the bench for Toronto for a long time.

But anyway. They got Dougie Buckets. Yeah, Doug McDermott is there to drop 15 points a game.

Yeah, good. Yeah, they just out here tankin'. I can't blame them.

I mean, it worked one time. They ended up with some guy named Tim Duncan and that worked out okay. They had David Robinson in their back pocket. Yeah, but David was broken. That's why they ended up with Timmy. And so let's see what happens now. I mean, well, I know this much. Greg Popovich is not going to be around the next 20 years to coach the next generation.

That much I know. Anyway, there's another team. I don't know what the Spurs call their colors. I look at it and I say black and silver. Mack Hollins from the Raiders.

He just joined us a couple of weeks ago and he told me it's the silver and black. And unfortunately for my friend Mack, his team isn't too hot right now. The Raiders are the only team in the NFL who happen to be 0-3.

Let me say it again in another way. They got no wins. They got three losses. They are 0-3.

And they should actually have some W's if they knew how to complete a game. First game of the season, they're taking on the Chargers and Derek Carr is throwing. He's like, hey, here's three interceptions. And meanwhile, Justin Herbert is like, hey, I got three touchdowns. That was also the last great game that Devontae Adams had.

He's been MIA over the past two contests. They blew a 20 point lead against Arizona. Remember that game? They had to go into overtime and then it ended on like a pick six the other way. And we saw Kyler Murray running all over the place.

It was crazy. And then in the last game, they never even had a lead. The Tennessee Titans just they own them. How you let Ryan Tannehill go out there and own you? Ryan Tannehill by himself is thinking of how many interceptions can I throw in a game? And can I throw them at pivotal moments of the game? And so I have no idea what the hell is going on with the Raiders.

I know that if you start thinking about the AFC West, they might as well be dead and buried at this point. Devontae Adams, he came out of his mouth and told everybody like, yeah, I'm frustrated and people are making a big deal out of it. Well, what's the big deal? Of course, he's going to be mad, upset and frustrated. What do you think? He wants to pack his bags and and go back to Green Bay right now.

Maybe not in the long term. I know that much. And so Derek Carr, he said earlier before the season started, Derek Carr said, look, I am not out here. Just. Given into what people want from us and expectations, I'm just I'm just going to play my game and I will be more honest.

Well, was he being honest when he said this? He said, the Raiders, we need to play better. We have to be better.

And if we're not, we're going to have a sucky feeling after every game. You know, so you try your best to do it the right way in practice. And if you don't do it right in practice, you can't expect it to go right in the game. And we got to look at that.

And each man is individual say, OK, then I got to be better at this, this and this. Oh, a sucky game, playing peewee football. Flag football sucky game. They take on Denver next. And at least for the Raiders, I guess this will be a reminder. For Coach Josh McDaniels, because that's the team that he used to coach.

He now has an overall record of five and 20. Where's Devontae Adams at one dark car giving him the ball? What's up with the defense?

Oh, my God. What is going on with the offensive line? Like you can't find five drunk guys off the Las Vegas Strip to go out there and play the line to protect Derek Carr.

I think you can. I've seen five drunks in the boulevard. I see them at the table at the MGM Grand. Give them a job. They can do better than the offensive line the Raiders got right now. You know your old line sucks when you took Alex Leatherwood. You said, no, we don't want him.

It's taken on a garbage man after that. So I'm sorry. I know they're taking on Denver next. And you want to talk about another disappointing team? Score the other day, Sunday, 11 to 10 against the Niners. I fell asleep during that game.

I got no shame in saying it. Again, put me to bed. Russell Wilson is. Oh, yeah.

Yes, for defense. This ain't what you signed up for. I know those checks.

They come in the direct deposit hits and you are one happy fellow. Somebody has to win this game. At least you can look at it that way. Denver, the Raiders should be exciting. It's the J.R. sport ratio here with you on CBS Sports Radio. What are your thoughts on these Raiders? I know we got a lot of people with a lot of comments.

Everything from Marvel to Jerry Jones to Kyrie Irving to the Raiders. We got you covered. We're going to talk about it all. And I'm in Philly.

So we have to talk about the Eagles. I'm going to talk to you on the other side of the break. It's the J.R. sport ratio on CBS Sports Radio. You're listening to the J.R. sport brief on CBS Sports Radio.

You are listening to the J.R. sport brief on CBS Sports Radio. Thank you, man. We love you down here in Texas. OK, Joe.

Hey, how you doing, man? I love your show. Love the topic. Thank you. I'll be listening again in the future. This is a great show. Call in now at eight five five two one two four CBS.

It's the J.R. sport brief show. I don't know what it is about teams wearing black and silver or silver and black. They look badass. They stink. They're going to stink. Greg Popovich and Media Day, he had no problem telling the world that, yeah, don't bet on the Spurs. We go suck.

This year is about development. And meanwhile, if I go from San Antonio to Vegas, we can take a look at the Raiders. They're running around with zero wins. There was so many expectations for the team this year to at least compete in the AFC West.

We already know it's tough enough as it is. And you're going to start 0-3. You're going to let the Titans just beat you from opening whistle to the end.

Like how? You got Arizona, you had them up by 20 points. You got the Vontae Adams there and he had one great, spectacular game in the last two.

He's in witness protection. The offensive line is in shambles. Josh McDaniel's people looking at him going, what are you going to do? And they got Denver up next. Watch, watch Russell Wilson find some way to beat them.

I'm a laugh. The Raiders are so cool. They are. Stadium is nice. Allegiant Stadium is amazing. I love it there.

If they would let me sleep there, I would. But I wouldn't want to do it now because they're a bunch of losers. 8-5-5-2-1-2-4 CBS. That's 8-5-5-2-1-2-4 CBS. I don't need loser stink rubbing off on me. Not at all.

They ain't going to turn the season around either. Let's go ahead. And who do we got here? Neil is calling up. Oh, he's midway between. Oh, he's not too far away.

A couple hours drive. Neil is here from Harrisburg. You're on CBS Sports Radio. What's up, Neil? Hey, I just wanted to make a comment about Popovich.

The airwaves are all yours. OK. He may have just said that just to maybe light a fire under some butts. I mean, we never know.

No, he didn't. I'm kind of hoping they're at least competitive. Name three players on the Spurs. I can't name one. There you go. OK, but go ahead.

Yeah, like I said, I can't name one, but I mean, hopefully. Because that would piss me off if I was one of them players. Yeah, well, they're not that good to have a fire lit under their butt.

And here's the thing. They have to in order for them to win games, they have to operate as a collective unit. And so if you are a player on that team, you're listening to Greg Popovich and you're the players are not dumb as well. They know if they're good enough as a team to do anything. And if you if you realistically said, hey, you guys go into the finals, they're going to roll out.

Who us? I don't know about all that, man. Yeah, you got a point. But the other thing I wanted to say is you brought up Belichick's name about how Belichick wouldn't get wouldn't get away with saying that. And about the Marvel movies, I'm with Shep on the Marvel movies.

I don't really watch them. I didn't read the comic books when I was a kid. But if they put Belichick in a Marvel movie, made him a bad guy and named him the mumbler, I'd watch that. Oh, well, OK.

Yes, I think I've said that quite a few times. Bill Belichick is like he's like a supervillain. I look at Bill Belichick and thank you, Neil. I look at him more as like a Star Wars character, like Bill Belichick is closer to.

What's the Darth Sidious? He's closer to him like the evil guy in the hood. You never see him until the end. And it's just like, oh, there he is. The mumbler.

The mumbler. He's just a miserable. Well, he's just he plays a miserable dude in the press conferences. Bill Belichick is running around his house like like Tom Cruise. He probably is. He gets home and he lets loose. He lets his head down, but he doesn't have any.

None. Kelly is calling from Houston, Texas. Shout out to all my friends listening on The Loop.

Kelly, you're on CBS Sports Radio. Yeah, yeah, exactly. The loop is my point right now. I mean, y'all talked about so much stuff. I'm like confused that I'm going to try to keep focus right here.

So on the Facebook loop, the loop has a Facebook page, right? And I said, you know, look. Is. Talent on the NFL team more important than coaching or is coaching more important than talent? Because I I mean, with the Texans, you know, whatever. But I'm looking at the Jaguars. Look at last year, what they did. And now look at this year, what they're doing.

They qualify it by saying it's only three games. Yes, I understand that. But wow. What a different. Yeah, I mean, well, Urban Meyer should have been.

OK, I've got to be careful there. Urban Meyer didn't need to be the coach last year. We know that. And so you bring in someone in Doug Peterson who's actually played in the NFL. You bring in someone who actually won a Super Bowl.

It's it's going to be different. And you're right. It's only been three games. But what are we going to call the Jacksonville Jaguars after three games? Are we supposed to be ridiculously impressed with them?

I'm not. What's more important, the players or the coach? I think it always boils down to talent, man. You've got to have the talent. You can bring in a coach and a coach can either add to the situation and pull people together or the coach can get the skids. It's all about talent.

You are not going to find. A great coach just going out there and winning with trash plays. It doesn't happen. Can a coach elevate a team to a certain degree? Yes, it could be a middling team and he can coach them up to a good one or a coach can take a good team and turn them into a great one.

But you're not going to have a great coach come in and take five traffic cones or 11 traffic cones and turn them into championship contenders. It's it's not going to happen. Sorry. Jim is calling from Wisconsin. You're CBS Sports Radio. Oh, I think I think Jim fell into the abyss.

It sucks for him. Perry is calling from Alabama. You're CBS Sports Radio. What's up, Perry? How's it going? I'm good. Where are you at, man? I'm at work. I just heard my name. Oh, yeah. You got me on speakerphone.

Not anymore. Well, what do you do for work? I deliver for Domino's. Oh, well, damn you to connect. You in a car right now. I just know we're done for tonight.

We just I just took my last delivery. Anyway, I don't know. Wait, wait, wait.

Do you have one of them codes that I could use? Hey, shut up. Hey, hold on, Perry. Hold on.

Don't go nowhere. Hey, shut up. Didn't you say last week you had a salad from Domino's? That would be true. Yes. Wouldn't it be great if Perry gave us one of them code so we could save some money? We'd greatly appreciate that Perry from Alabama.

Hey, Perry, you got it. You got a Domino's code. I don't.

Well, it's the employees. We have a 30% off discount, but we have. So make sure you share that with me and shut up on the side and we won't share it with the with the country, OK? OK. All right.

What else you got? All right. You were talking about the NFL and Jerry Jones and Dallas.

Yes. Dallas will not win another Super Bowl until Jerry Jones is gone. Either death or sell the team will do whatever comes first with death on anybody. I'm just saying, yeah, that that's now I predicted Miami to go to the Super Bowl this year. They're three. You know, when they got Tyree Hill, I predicted it and I stuck with it. And then we come back from a 21 point deficit and beat the Ravens and Lamar Jackson, I might add. Now, the NFC. I don't think Philadelphia is going to lose three games.

It's going to be two versus Jalen in the Super Bowl. Philadelphia is the strongest team I've seen in a long time after three weeks. Their offensive line is physical, the defensive line is physical.

They got the Vontae making circus catches like he did at Alabama. I mean, I just don't feel losing three games this year. They're going to go undefeated in the conference. And I'm sorry, in the division. Well, I mean, look at who they got to play. I know three serious teams in the NFC. And we're going to thank you, Perry, for calling from Alabama. We're going to talk about the Eagles at the top of the hour. And I mean, well, damn, you want to talk about to the tongue of a lower. We got a match up. They're going to be there if you don't actually remember to a tongue of a lower. And they said he didn't suffer a concussion.

That man was woozy as all hell. We found out that he's been dealing with a back injury and ankle injury. You got a bunch of guys on a defense, the defensive backs, they're hurt. And the Dolphins are going to be in action on Thursday.

It's all to a tongue of a lower. He's he's likely to go out there and play. And yeah, if you look at what the Dolphins did at the end of last year with Brian Flores, to be able to pick up where they left off with a new head coach, new offensive weapons.

You want to talk about Tyree kill. You have a second year now of jail and waddle in this high expectations. I'm just happy. That the Dolphins are at the top of the AFC East. And Bill Belichick has to look up at him.

Mac Jones is in pain with a high ankle sprain. The Jets are the Jets. The bills aren't going anywhere. I still like the bills in the Super Bowl. But it's always good when you get you get new teams and different teams at the top. I don't need to see Bill Belichick win another thing in his life.
