For home loan solutions that fit your life, Rocket can. Happy Wednesday night to you. I'm here to get you over the hump.
Or two or three. I don't know how many humps are in front of you, but let me navigate you over it and get you closer to Thursday. I'm being joined by super producer and host Dave Shepherd, and I'm also thankful that I'm here with you. That I'm coming emanating through your speakers on your local CBS Sports Radio affiliate, on the free Odyssey app, SiriusXM channel 158, and everybody listening on a smart speaker. If you want to give me a holler, it's simple. We got a phone number. We got multiple lines. It's 855-212-4CBS.
That's 855-212-4CBS. Here over the next four hours, we got quite a few things to discuss. The World Series is active right now, game four. Houston just put five runs on the board. It's now the bottom of the fifth, and Houston leads in Philadelphia five to nothing. Houston Astros looking to tie up the World Series at two all.
We know about that ass whooping at the Phillies handed them last night seven to nothing with five home runs. Houston trying to return the favor, and even the World Series up. So we will definitely keep you up to date as this game continues on.
Of course, Wednesday night into Thursday morning, I always bring you a new top six list. We're about halfway through the NFL season. There is no official halfway because we don't get 16 games anymore. We have a 17-game NFL season, and we've decided to look at things and say tonight is the night that we will evaluate the teams that have done the best so far this season.
And so I'm giving you a top six list, the best NFL teams here through the midway point of the season. And so we'll do that two hours from now. It will be a good time. In about 20 minutes or so from now, we're going to talk to former NFL player. This man now works in the financial world. Wale O'Goumier, he's going to join us.
You might remember him, used to hit everybody and everything that moved. For the Dolphins, went to the Super Bowl with the Bears, and now he's working with athletes to make sure that they don't screw up financially. He's in charge of sports and entertainment. So we'll have a conversation with him in 20 minutes. Bill Self, speaking of finances, he's been suspended coming off of a championship win for things that took place, I don't know, five, six, seven years ago. But if you really want to talk about a screw up, or at least the acknowledgement of one, you don't have to look any further than Kyrie Irving.
And that's where we're going to start off the show. And it's unfortunate because he's newsworthy and it's not because of a dumbass thing he said like over the weekend or shared. It's really because Kyrie has now had to backtrack. I can't say he apologized. Hey, shut up. Did he apologize? No, right? In a statement, he backtracked.
Yeah. I read it about three or four times and I was looking for the apology. It didn't happen. You raised something Kyrie wrote three or four times? Well, it's not necessarily a holy Kyrie Irving.
Sorry to hear that. Here's the update, folks. Kyrie Irving this evening, in addition to the Brooklyn Nets, in the Anti-Defamation League, they released a joint statement.
And this is ultimately the result of what's happened over the weekend. Kyrie Irving, the Brooklyn Nets, they're each going to donate $500,000 to the Anti-Defamation League. And this is the joint statement, primarily this part from Kyrie Irving. I oppose all forms of hatred and oppression and stand strong with communities that are marginalized and impacted every day. I'm aware of the negative impact of my posts towards the Jewish community and I take responsibility. I do not believe everything said in the documentary was true or reflects my morals and principles. I am a human being learning from all walks of life and I intend to do so with an open mind and a willingness to listen.
So from my family and I, we meant no harm to any one group, race, or religion of people and wish to only be a beacon of truth and light. Come on now, man. This is the same old with Kyrie Irving except for this time he insulted an entire community. Come on. This man says and does wild ass things and then has to explain himself. Grow up, please. This is now, I don't even know how long the list is for Kyrie Irving right now when it comes down to say something controversial, get upset when people ask you to explain it and then he puts out a statement similar to what we just got. I'm learning, I'm a human, I'm trying to get things together, well, damn it, man, we all are.
But not everybody is out here just putting out BS. Hey, Kyrie, how you feel about the earth? Oh, it's flat. Hey, Kyrie, what do you think about playing in Boston? I want to stay.
Yeah, but my teammates need to be better. Oh, well, I didn't mean it that way. Kyrie Irving joins the Brooklyn Nets and goes on vacation. Kyrie Irving is a part of the Brooklyn Nets, this is business, he doesn't want to be vaccinated but then when he returns he doesn't necessarily wave the same type of flag that he waved for being a voice for the voiceless.
And now he tweets a film, puts it out on social media, people are upset and bothered by it because of the nonsense that comes out of it, he doubles down and says, I got an army behind me and then two, three days later now he's backing down. Kyrie Irving is 30 years old. He's not fresh out of college. Yeah, I wonder how much that Duke education worked, that short one. He has a family, he has a wife, he has a kid. How long are we supposed to expect this man to make these type of mistakes, to not understand his platform, to not just put out nonsense and to actually one time shut up and not be a distraction? Shaquille O'Neal and Charles Barkley, they were on TNT, they basically said that this man is an idiot. I'm not gonna go that far, I'm not gonna be upset that they called him an idiot because I do believe it was tongue in cheek, it was true but it was tongue in cheek, they didn't mean any harm by it, whether you want to call him ignorant, an idiot, a jackass, I think all of the above apply. He doesn't get it, he should put his phone down and he should just go away. You're right, Kyrie Irving is a basketball player, he also is a human being and we got a lot of people who idolize celebrities and basketball players and look to them for information and guidance and inspiration, yeah sure, that's all fine.
But what are you doing with the platform that you have? It's only gonna be a matter of time. Is it gonna be another month? Is it gonna be two months, is it gonna be halfway through the season? Is it gonna be at the end of the year when he is a free agent and can go wherever he wants to go or, let me take that back, he can't go any and everywhere he wants to go because he just tried that and nobody wanted him. You think the Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles, you think they wanna bring this guy in right now, they hope that this blows over, right, you would think so.
He's never gonna learn, Shaquille O'Neal on TNT as I told you, he didn't leave the gloves on about Kyrie, he took them off and battered them, listen to this. You have to be aware of what you're doing and you have to be aware that sometimes when you put stuff out, not everybody's gonna like it. Some people are conscious, some people are not, I can tell he's not conscious, he doesn't really care what's going on. But us, I know that the game that we used to love and we promote, it brings people together and it hurts me sometimes when we have to sit up here to talk about stuff that divides the game. Now we gotta answer for what this idiot has done.
I stand for equality of all people, I've always been like that, no matter what religion, no matter where you're from, I can say shalom, salaam alaikum, nihaw, saebon, because that's how I was raised. So I don't really want to sit up here and answer questions for what he's done. You know, if you're looking at me, it's my job to make people happy. I can't speak for him, you know, answer for what he's doing. It's obviously by his answers and the way he answers, he doesn't really care. Oh, either he doesn't care or he's too ignorant.
I think it's a combination of the two. And at this point, Kyrie Irving, he's had a complex career, doesn't win anything as the number one overall pick with the Cavs. LeBron James comes back, they win a championship, ultimately Kyrie Irving doesn't want any part of it, he wants his own team, he leaves, goes to Boston, shows up, tells everybody that he wants to stick around and he leaves, goes to Brooklyn, goes on vacation, basically doesn't want to be vaccinated, talks out of both sides of his mouth, gets hurt.
What else is new? That's a that's a story of his dating back to his time at Duke tweets and shares out this film on IG as well, and here we are. He is a fun dude to watch, but I'm sick of him. I wish Kyrie would go away. Ultimately do I think he'll be pushed out of the league?
Yeah, I think so. I don't think he's worth the headache. And then he can go on whatever crusades that he wants to to educate himself, the people who he feels he represents, but I think the first thing that Kyrie Irving needs to do is just look in the mirror. Instead of trying to educate and help out other people, how about you just work on yourself? How about you put the phone down and pick up a book? How about you be cognizant all the time, which he is continually said all the time. This isn't the first time that Kyrie Irving came out of his mouth and said, I'm a human. I'm learning. You know what? I've never seen a never seen a pupil, a student go through the process of learning and then try to preach to everybody else what they're in the process of picking up.
That is ass backwards. If Kyrie Irving is not going to disappear sooner than later, which I don't think he will, I think the league will push him out. Teams will get tired of him. I think his injury history will do enough.
At minimum, put the phone down. Make your money on the court. As you say, keep learning and save the nonsense before you actually formulate an educated opinion Kyrie Irving putting out a statement, not apologizing, acknowledging that what he shared was, was wrong.
Now donating half a million dollars to the anti-defamation league, Brooklyn Nets putting in cash as well. I'm just waiting, waiting for Kyrie Irving to go away. I don't wish injury on anyone, waiting on him to end up on the bench, waiting on free agency for no one to want to pick him up, a injury prone 31 year old small point guard. Who would add this guy right now besides the Lakers? And that would reek of desperation as well.
You want to know more? It'd be nice if other folks kind of said something. That's what Reggie Miller was looking for. That's what Charles Barkley was looking for. Some of his actual peers to say, man, that's on BS. That's what Reggie Miller had to say a couple of nights ago on a broadcast. We're very vocally strong and some type of discipline be handed down or be gone. The players have dropped the ball on this case when it's been one of their own.
It's been crickets. And that's disappointing because this league has been built on the shoulders of players being advocates. Right is right and wrong is wrong. And if you're going to call out owners, and rightfully so, then you've got to call out players as well. You can't go go silence in terms of this for Kyrie Irving. I want to hear the players and their strong opinions as well. Just the same way we heard about Robert Sarver and Donald Sterling.
Yeah, that'd be nice, Reggie, but I think we all know this already. Nobody's going to rock the boat when you're all in the same boat. It's rare that you hear owners criticize owners because they don't want to be next. It's rare that you ever hear a player criticize another player in that regard because they don't want to be next. That's unfortunately the way of the world.
Double standards and hypocrisy. The clock is ticking on Kyrie Irving. It's only going to be a matter of time before he says or does something else absolutely off the wall. And I just wish we can get him out of here sooner than later. I'm more sick of him than at this point. I think Aaron Rodgers, and that's saying a lot. It's the JR Sport Brief Show here with you on CBS Sports Radio, 855-212-4CBS.
That's 855-212-4CBS. We're going to take a break, and when we come back on the other side, we're going to have a conversation with someone who was an all-pro, a pro bowler, a quarterback machine, a quarterback beating machine, Wale Agunlier, former dolphin, former bear. He's going to join us. I'm going to get his thoughts on Kyrie's situation. I want to talk to him obviously about those dolphins and the bears. I want to ask him about his current role at UBS.
He went from the field to the office, and he's doing some amazing things, even launching a new show. We'll talk about it on the other side. It's the JR Sport Brief Show, CBS Sports Radio. I can't believe that we ain't talking about that.
We're talking about this idiot. You're listening to the JR Sport Brief on CBS Sports Radio. You're listening to the JR Sport Brief on CBS Sports Radio. It's the JR Sport Brief Show here with you on CBS Sports Radio.
Right now, we got a guest on the line. This is someone who has been an all-pro. This is someone who is going to a pro bow. He has played in a Super Bowl. You might remember him from the dolphins.
You might remember him from the bears, an 11-year NFL veteran who went and got his NBA after his playing career was done, and is now in charge of sports and entertainment at UBS, a global financial firm. It's my main man from New York, Wale Agunlier. Wale, how are you, man? I'm good.
I'm good. When I heard that DMX in the beginning, I said, it's going to be fun. It's going to be a fun one. We don't do anything but fun here on the JR Sport Brief show, Wale. Yeah, man. No doubt about it.
Listen, man, we got to start, unfortunately, with something that probably isn't too much fun. We're going to talk more about your role at UBS and some of the ventures that you're working on, especially as it relates to programming and players' TV. Right before we got to break and opened up the show, we updated the world on Kyrie Irving and his $500 donation to the Anti-Defamation League. Knowing that, you manage money. Knowing that, you advise, folks. What advice would you give to Kyrie Irving right now?
Oh, man, that's a good question. At the end of the day, I think any athlete, they need to just have some trusted advisors that can help them think through some of the decisions that they make and some of the things that they say and realizing that, listen, at the end of the day, we don't live in a vacuum. And because athletes have a platform, at the end of the day, sometimes they get more credit than they should, and they get more microphones in their face than they should than a regular person. But we need to understand that. The nature that we live in, in this era of social media, I think all athletes need to have a brain trust of people around them that can tell them, like, you know, you're going to affect the way certain people think. I know there's a freedom of speech in this country, but sometimes words hurt people, right? And we've got to be real careful on how we say things and how things are perceived.
And I just hope that he does have some sound people around him, at least try to advise them to do and say the right things, and at the end of the day, not hurt people. Former quarterback, Rekha Wale, Oguniye, is here with us on CBS Sports Radio. When you talk about having proper advisers around you, we talked about the double standard, you know, players not necessarily calling out players. It's rare that you see the same thing with owners calling out owners. We know in the NFL, we just saw Jim Irsay, he called out Dan Snyder.
And we learned earlier today that Dan Snyder, amongst all the investigations, is likely exploring a sale of the team. What do you think about that double standard when it comes to owners and being afraid to call somebody out because you might be next? Yeah, I think at the end of the day, it's, I think when it comes to players, I think it's like, you got this lock room mentality where, you know, it's us against the world.
And that's kind of what you've been taught from, you know, you know, Little League or Pee-Wee, like it's us against the world, and don't let outside distractions, you know, get in the way. And I think that in itself leads to the culture of not calling people out. And then also, because we live in a world where it feels like everyone's waiting for you to fall or make a mistake, you know, if you do say something, people are waiting for that opportunity to wear like, ah, we gotcha, right? So people tend to be afraid of falling into that gotcha moment. But as a society that has to do better and be better, we have to be, you know, grown and mature about calling people out, especially when things aren't going well. And when it comes to the owners, you know, it's a small fraternity of men that have had the opportunity to own these teams, and they don't want anybody in. And the only time that you're ever going to have someone say something negative about another owner is if they're messing with the bottom line. And I think with Dan Snyder, I think people are older than starting to feel like, listen, you're messing up our product, and that's when they start to speak out.
Yeah. When you start messing up the money, it's going to be time for you to go, Walei, man, you started off your career with the Dolphins down in Miami, coming off of your knee injury undrafted. You made your bones, then went out to the Bears. But down in Miami right now, they just picked up a pass rusher. They added Bradley Chubb from the Denver Broncos. And now we hear Tuatanga Voloa, he's like, hey, I'm not afraid to talk Super Bowl. What do you think about the Dolphins, the addition of Chubb, and where they realistically can end up this year?
You know, it's so crazy, man. You look at the whole AFC East, and you see with the Dolphins, and I was always a fan of Tuat. I felt like we tend to grade these quarterbacks a little too soon.
And everybody wants instant gratification. And with him being hurt, you know, at the beginning of his career, and now with the coaching chain, he's going to take time. And I'm glad that he's found himself. And he's had this city on fire. Dauphin fans are extremely excited about what they're seeing out there, the weapons that he has. And now you're adding a defense, which means I'm a defensive player, and you add a guy like Chubb. Of course, people are going to start talking, you know, Super Bowl around here. So it's a good time to be here in Miami. It's a good time to be in the AFC East, because, you know, it's so crazy. You couldn't tell me that the Jets were going to be 5-3, or even Miami after last year was going to be 5-3 right now.
It's Buffalo 6-1 and doing the 4-4. So it's the best thing about the NFL, like, you know, every year, it's a different story line. And right now, our story line here in Miami is things are looking up. Things are looking up.
Wale Agunier here with us, the JR Sport Re-show, CBS Sports Radio. You might have played and started off with the Dolphins afterwards. You went up to Chicago.
You were a bear. Man, you were in the Super Bowl. We know that's somewhere that the Bears are trying to go back to. They're rebuilding. They have fields.
They just added clay pool. They have picks to build into the future. When you look at fields and what they're preparing around him, is he the long-term answer? Do you think he can stick around and be that guy finally for the next, I don't know, 5-10 years?
Yeah, you know, I think the verdict is still out. But, you know, I go back to my previous statements, like, we've got to give these QBs some time to adjust. And I tell, you know, people all the time, like, it takes 16 games for a defense or defensive coordinators to understand quarterbacks. That's why a lot of times you see these quarterbacks have, like, that first year, like, oh, my gosh, they're going to be amazing. And then defenses and defensive coordinators catch up to these quarterbacks. And the quarterbacks that are able to out-study and out-practice and beat the coordinators are the paint-managers of the world, are the Tom Brady of the world, are the Drew Brees of the world, that year after year, they're able to outsmart and stay at least one step ahead of some of these defenses. And that's what you're going to have to wait and see with these quarterbacks. Hopefully in the off-season, they're getting there, they're studying in, they're practicing, they're realizing the mistakes they're making, they're able to see their strengths and their weaknesses and they're working on that stuff. So it takes time.
But in this era of instant gratification, it's hard. Do I think he has the talent to be, you know, a five, 10-year quarterback? Absolutely. But let's see how hard he's willing to, you know, stay in the study room and hopefully he stays healthy. And it looks like the Bears are trying their best to unload some talent so that they can have some talent for him, you know, down the road.
Yeah, not everybody's going to wake up and be Patrick Mahomes or Lamar Jackson, Wally Agunier here with us. We know the average career of an NFL player is what, now three, three and a half years, give or take? And you had an 11-year career. You've been able to transition over into the business and financial world at UBS.
What prompted you to get involved on the business side post-retirement and go ahead and get your master's? Yeah. You know, I think, you know, everyone here says, everyone says that, you know, NFL stands for not for long. And that's the truth.
The truth of the matter. And I was lucky enough to play 11 years and during that time, I made a, you know, a considerable amount of money. But when I got done playing, I realized that I was risking a lot of my income and revenue that I have created through my hard work because I didn't understand what my financial devices were saying to me.
Right. I had a four-year degree from Indiana University. I played in the NFL for 11 years. I had millions of dollars in the bank.
And I still didn't understand simple terminology. So I said, you know what? I'm going to take advantage of this NFL program that helps pay for graduate program.
Right. And I got in that and I went to get my MBA just so I could understand, just so I could ask the right questions to scare these unsavory advisors away. And then I realized, like, in the process that this is probably the biggest key to helping our athletes, especially NFL players, like, get past those years of financial distress soon after they get done playing and if they have the knowledge and have the resources to help them stretch the amount of money that they had, it works out. Like at the end of the day, if you're going to play in the NFL for four years, the truth of the matter is you're probably going to have to have another career and there's no shame in that.
But a lot of times these young men are not ready for that. And then also not having the financial literacy behind that gets people in a lot of trouble. And I realized that I got my degree that reputable firms, firms like UBS, that at the end of the day, their reputation is just as high as Patrick Mahone's or as a Peyton Manning, like places where they want to lose out on business because they're doing things the wrong way. And that's why I felt like me teaming up with a firm like UBS with a win-win situation, right? We've got a firm that is super expert at managing money. And then me having the experience and the guidance and actually the passion to help these young men and women on both sides of sports and entertainment understand their finances, but then also make sure that the firm understands who these young men are, who these young women are, and why it's important for them to build legacies once they're all done with their sports career. Wale Agunlie going from the field up into the office, head of sports and entertainment at UBS global financial firm. You guys have also teamed up with Players TV, which is pretty much a wide selection of professional athletes who have gone together to, you know, kind of push their own narrative from a content perspective. You've also now been tasked with hosting a new series called The Long Game. Explain that for us.
Yeah. I mean, you hit it right on the head. It's athletes, you know, controlling their own narrative. And what we've done with these shows is we've kind of tried to dispel some of the stereotypes and biases that come into play when, when society looks at clients, I mean, it looks at athletes and that whole just shut up and dribble stuff or to shut up and run the rock. The shows that we have when it comes to front office where we talked earlier about having that brain trust of athletes, great advisors around these athletes. Well, front office is kind of molded in this, in this form of Shark Tank, but it shows how athletes should look at deals that come their way. And when I played sports and even today, every day I had either a family member or a friend or even a total stranger coming to me with an idea.
And the only thing that they needed to make this idea work was my capital, right? So with that being said, we're teaching and we're showing the world how we would love our athletes to sit down, have trusted advisors around them and look at who these deals the right way. And that's really a good, good standpoint for these athletes to show other athletes to the new ones, the rookies, the, and even the older ones to show how do you do business the right way.
And we have a show called Long Game where we're talking about life after, right? We're dealing with the Jackie Joyner Kirshis of the world, the Isaiah Thomas of the world. We even have Dame Leonard on there and talk about things that they're doing off the field. A lot of it has to do with some of the philanthropic stuff that athletes do when it comes to society, whether it's, you know, dealing with George Floyd issue that happened last year, or even some of the political stuff that happens in the country. Sometimes our athletes are looked at as, as advocates and then voices of which way do we turn. And this show touches upon a lot of the stuff that these athletes are doing outside of their careers that are help building their legacy. So I'm super excited about the content with breaking down barriers, but more importantly, we're dispelling a lot of stereotypes and notions with these shows and I'm excited about the partnership.
Awesome. Wale, where can people find out more information about what you're working on and to see some of this content? Well, for us, you can go to ubs.com forward slash legacy and you can see all the stuff that we've been created. I've been working here now and it's crazy. Like my three years now that I've been at this, at this, and we've been super successful on all the content we had, you can check it out at ubs.com forward slash legacy. And you see all the stuff that we have from players TV to our conversations to anything we have to do with financial education.
It's a, it's all there for you to see. That's a beautiful thing. Wale, you talk about philanthropic work.
We do a lot of work here with special Olympics and also CBS sports radio. I'm going to holler at you myself about some amazing ideas. So stay tuned on that. Okay. Sounds good for sure. Absolutely.
No doubt about it. Tell everybody one more time where they can follow you. You can follow me at, uh, again, um, ubs.com forward slash legacy. And uh, you know, if you, if you want to, um, purge my personal account on, on Instagram as Wale, uh, oh, go man, uh, uh, on Instagram and AO the Prince 93 on Twitter.
So, uh, follow me there and, um, you know, we can chop it up. Appreciate it. Big shout outs to Wale Agunier for joining us here. The JR sport brief show on CBS sports radio, being able to go from the field, uh, to the financial world, to giving advice, to also giving in producing content. Uh, yeah, he hit the nail on the head early on with the first question, you know, with someone like Kyrie Irving, everybody can use a little bit of guidance.
Somebody to go ahead and tell you the truth. Thank you one more time to Wale for joining us here. It's the JR sport brief show on CBS sports radio. We're going to take a break. And when we come back on the other side, speaking of the longevity of an NFL career, there's a head coach in the NFL.
People are again talking about how long he's going to stick around or maybe leave. I'll tell you who on the other side, it's the JR sport brief show on CBS sports radio. You're listening to the JR sport brief on CBS sports radio. JR wants to hear from you call him now at 855-212-4CBS that's 855-212-4227. The JR sport brief show here with you on CBS sports radio. Thank you to a former NFL player, current head of sports and entertainment at UBS Wale Ogunliye for joining us here right before the break. Taking a look at a advisement, I mean, he said Kyrie Irving probably should have some great advisors around him. And we talked about Daniel Snyder and people being held accountable and a locker room mentality. It's us against everybody else. And at the top of the hour, we're going to talk about this Daniel Snyder situation.
As I'm sure you've probably heard, this man is exploring a sale of the commanders. There's a lot of people who are absolutely thrilled about the prospect of this team being moved to someone else's hands, plenty of people waiting on that. Let me give you an update on the world series briefly. Houston Astros currently lead Philadelphia 5-0 in the bottom of the seventh. Christian Javier, the starter for the Astros tonight, this man no hit the Phillies through the first six innings of the game. Brian Abreu just actually walked off of the field here at the seventh.
It's now over. The Phillies still don't have a hit. They're in a hole right now, 5-0. And so Houston trying to walk away with a tie here in the series, a two all tie. Last night we saw what the Phillies were able to do, seven runs, five home runs, not tonight.
They could certainly use some of the offense as things continue and will keep you up to date as Houston currently leads 5-0 trying to even up the world series at two all. So right before we went to break and speaking of advisement and change, there was a story today from Albert Breer pretty much saying that NFL head coach Sean McVeigh that he's going to be ready to bail when his core players are cooked. Donald and Ramsey, Stafford, that he's going to be ready to call it a wrap when these guys are done. Let's keep in mind, Sean McVeigh just signed a contract extension that will take him through 2026 and can this really be news when we heard this in the off season? That after they actually won the Super Bowl, that Aaron Donald was ready to go. They gave him a three year extension and Sean McVeigh was, they were tying themselves to each other as to whether or not they were going to return.
And so I believe this is just a matter of no news. Sean McVeigh has already made it very clear he's not going to be one of these guys who's going to coach until he's 70 years old. He was hired in 2017 at 30 years old. So don't expect him to be a Bill Belichick. Don't expect him to be a Pete Carroll. When the time is ready, he's going to leave.
It was reported that Amazon, we see them venturing into sports now with Thursday night football, that they were ready to give him a deal, $100 million over five years. So if you're Sean McVeigh, you're going to squeeze everything that you can out of coaching and then you're going to leave for television. I think that's obvious. And even on a down year right now, the Rams suck. Three and four, the offense can only muster 17 points a game. They can't run the ball at all. The only team worse is the Buccaneers.
Sean McVeigh, he knows they suck. He's still not leaving for now. This is what he had to say about what they're facing and going through this year. This is some real challenges that we're going through, you know, because we have been very spoiled and I've been spoiled by things have gone pretty well for us. And so to be seven games into the season in this spot is foreign.
Oh, yeah, it's foreign. And they know coming back this year, you want a Super Bowl last year, enjoy it. They cannot run the ball to save their lives.
It's amazing that a team that was ranked seventh in offense last year and won a championship, they now ranked 28. Cam Akers did not get traded. He did not get the boot based on their current record. You can expect Odell Beckham Jr. not to join the team. Cooper Cup was just left in the game to be brutalized in his own regard.
But at least Sean McVeigh can look on the bright side. For the next couple of years, he's going to make approximately $10 million. Maybe they'll be competitive again, as in competing for a Super Bowl, and then he's going to leave, likely to television. Something that Tom Brady should probably do and that he's been waiting a long time for. And so this report that when his core players are done, he's done.
We knew this already. We just went through this with Aaron Donald. Aaron Donald will accumulate stats. The rest of the team will accumulate numbers. And if I need to be realistic, do I see the Rams winning another Super Bowl? No, I think they kind of get old, which I think is going on right now. I know they don't have draft picks.
And even with the expansion and elevation of the salary cap, NFL is way too competitive. And so good luck to Sean McVeigh. Make your money and leave.
Sounds like a great dream. It's the JR Sport Brief show here with you on CBS Sports Radio. I told you I wish Kyrie Irving would leave. Sean McVeigh, he's going to make a couple more dollars, a lot of them, over the next several years, and then he will leave. And when we get to the top of the hour, I'm going to talk to you about an NFL owner, Daniel Snyder of the Washington Commanders. We got the news earlier today that he might leave. And we got a lot of people in Virginia, Maryland, the DC area, who are absolutely thrilled. Is it going to come to fruition? Is he going to be punished on the way out the door? But do all of these investigations mean? And this is going to be a good luck for Washington.
The answer is absolutely. I'll give you some details on the other side of the break. I'll update you on the World Series. That's the JR Sport Brief show right here with you on CBS Sports Radio.
