You're listening to the JR Sport Brief on CBS Sports Radio. And we are coming to you live from the Rocket Mortgage Studios.
If you need to know what it takes for a home to fit your budget and your family, Rockets can. I don't know how much more we could fit into the show. This has been absolutely bananas tonight. The Lakers choke away, well they come back and then they choke away a chance to win against Boston. Tatum was cooking LeBron on the baseline. Turn around, spin and fade away, it's like wow, over LeBron?
Not the first time Tatum has cooked LeBron by the way, but we saw him doing that when he was a rookie. Give Tatum that ugly ass MVP award, we'll talk about that. Carlos Correa, he gets paid big time tonight.
$350 million, a 13 year deal for Carlos Correa to go to the Giants. That's tough for me. I like San Francisco. Who am I kidding?
I kind of like a little bit of everybody. I don't got a dog in the race. Is it a dog or a horse, Shep? It's a horse, right? Horse in a race? Horse in a race, yes. Do we still race dogs in America? Does that still happen? Oh yeah.
Oh no, wow, really? Greyhounds? Greyhounds? And also because the concept of the zone is going to be dog shows, therefore the zone is going to be dog races. Even if it's not official, it's going to be in conjunction with the dog race. So you mean to tell me Peter is out here slacking? I'm telling you Peter knows what battles to take and unfortunately as long as money makes the world go round, there's always going to be dog shows. Peter will throw paint on somebody's fur coat, but Peter won't go to the racetrack for the dogs? Honestly, they should be going to the racetrack for horses.
Oh my God. Who get it even worse. I mean, at least dogs get to sleep in their owner's bed. Horses have to sleep in stables. They still got them horses running up and down Fifth Avenue in New York City too. I see them. Yeah, and even worse in Central Park.
Yeah, it's bad. Hey listen, I know somebody out there works with Peter. The hell are y'all doing? Get it together. Got these horses out here walking down Fifth Avenue with a bus.
What is this? It's not 1870? Got electric cars. It's not the Jetsons yet, but get that horse out the street, dammit. Let's put you in the street and make you walk. Strap something in your mouth and make you go. Anyway, let me get off my soapbox. It's the JR Sport Free Show here on CBS Sports Radio. Shout out to horses though.
Just keep them out of city streets. We have gone through a lot tonight. By the way, I'm coming to you live from Phoenix, Arizona. I want to thank everyone for being absolutely amazing. I'm doing two things at one time.
I'm wearing, not that you could see it, my Midwestern University sweatshirt. I'll share it later. We had a great time speaking with the faculty and students and staff and the Special Olympics athletes as we talked about unified health and unified sports. That was a lot of fun. We'll be able to share that audio with you tomorrow. It's such a jam-packed show.
Korea. Unfortunately, we talked about the passing of Mike Leach, but we highlighted the funny of Mike Leach. He left us with not just air raid. He left us with a lot of memorable moments.
For the remainder of the hour while I'm here, and I know it's going to go by quick because time flies when you're having fun, I'm going to take your calls on Korea. We'll talk about these Lakers if you should choose. I've got a lot of tweets about how ugly the new MVP trophy is in the NBA. Marion Wallace tweets me at JR Sport Brief. At least they could have made the trophy look like Jordan. I understand.
It's a hard knock life out here. Speaking of Mike Leach, let's get this hour started off on a high note and then I'm going to get right back to the phone lines. Let's listen to one of the funniest things you will ever hear a coach say about how his players, they lost the game. The reason why they lost is because they're listening to the wrong people. Namely, the fat little girlfriends.
Is that an oxymoron? As coaches, we failed to get through to them. As coaches, we failed to make our coaching points and our points more compelling than their fat little girlfriends. Now, their fat little girlfriends have some obvious advantages.
For one thing, their fat little girlfriends are telling them what they want to hear, which is how great you are and how easy it's going to be. We had a whole bunch of people. Everybody wanted to win the football game, but nobody wanted to play the football game. That defies every level of work ethic that exists with regard to football. As coaches, we have to solve our failure on reaching them.
The players have to listen. I'm willing to go to fairly amazing lengths to try to make that happen. I don't know if I'll be successful this week or not, but I am going to try and there will be some people inconvenienced. If it happens, be their fat little girlfriends too bad.
Great American oxymoron, fat and little. RIP to Mike Leach, many condolences and much love to his family. How could I forget? We talked about Kyler Murray as well, man, that ACL.
I just touched down in Arizona. It's official. It's torn. I'm like, man, Arizona is cooked from now until, I don't know, next year, the year after that. Cliff Kingsbury, he might as well go back to Texas Tech. Just leave, man.
What are you doing here? NFL don't want you. You stink. 8 5 5 2 1 2 4 CBS.
That's 8 5 5 2 1 2 4 CBS. John is calling from Cleveland. What's up, John? Hey, what's up, JR? How are you feeling tonight? I'm amazing.
Good, good. I like to talk to you. I'd like to talk to you about something real because I know you're a man of the people. Do you mind if we talk about something real? No, let's talk about something fake.
I like that better. What's up, John? What's up? All right.
So on some real stuff. So I'm about to graduate. I'm about to become a teacher. Congrats. And I'm at.
Oh, thank you, man. I appreciate that. One more week and I'm in it. But I'm having a hard time at this point in my life because I've grown up with sports. I love sports.
I had an internship at ESPN, loved everything about it. But now I'm to the point where it's like, all right, so I'm coming out and I'm only going to make, you know, like 40,000 or whatever. And I'm having a hard time relating to all these professional players making so much money that's starting to get like kind of that that distance between us where it's just like, I don't know if I actually care about sports because they don't know nothing about my world and I don't know nothing about their world.
So what do we what do we do to make that connection again? We I mean, I think I think the world in general has as just moved further and further into a place of in part in the term, but the haves and the have nots. I mean, there are very few people running around.
The majority of us don't make a lot of money and we have very few people who make buckets of it. So I can't tell you how you can love sports. I mean, I enjoy sports. I love the strategy behind it. I love the skill. I can appreciate the athleticism.
I love the thought that goes into the preparation. And so I don't I don't always look at it and think about it from a dollars and cents perspective, obviously, and I'd be sitting here as a dumbass. I get paid to talk about sports. You know, I know some of these guys, I know the teams, you know, so it's a little bit different from my perspective, but I can certainly understand the disconnect.
You have to remember this is this is entertainment. I think a lot of us get sucked in a little bit differently because it's sports. It's something that's relatable to most of us at some point in life. Maybe you kick the ball. Maybe you threw one. You know, maybe you did it in your backyard or maybe you did it in high school, college, the pros.
Maybe you did it in middle school. Like there's there's different levels for everybody. And so it makes it relatable. But on the highest level, it's entertainment.
You know, what's different from saying, hey, I want to watch an NBA game versus Netflix or saying I want to go to the movies or saying I want to spend a night out on the town. It's just it's a form of entertainment. And the people at the top, nobody complains about the rock.
You know, do you stop seeing the rock because he makes, I don't know, 40 or 50 a movie. Right now. No, you're right. That's me. That's that's why I called. I knew I could talk to you about something real.
I was just curious about what your opinion was. I really appreciate you. I love your show. So thank you. I appreciate you taking my phone call, man. Thank you, John. Appreciate you for calling from Cleveland. Yeah, man. It's just it's entertainment.
And I think we have to put it in that bucket. When you start thinking about how much money athletes make. Start thinking about musicians. Think about your favorite musician.
It's a different connection, right? Maybe not all not all musicians out here making, you know, 35 and 40. Not every musician is driving a 16, 17, 18, 19, 20 billion dollar business. They making a couple mill. I could think about some musicians who show up to an arena and they got a they walking out the door with a couple of hundred.
We got people who don't make that in in multiple years. And it's it's entertainment. And the money is plastered all over the place. You know what everyone makes now. I understand. Entertainment's entertainment.
If you want to get involved in entertainment business, by all means, go ahead and do it. I feel like I just gave out and gave away some jare wisdom. And you know what? Hey, Shep, as I as I think out loud here. You know, I took the top six from YouTube and now we do it here on the radio.
Very much so. Every Friday on YouTube, I would give away, not give away, but I would I would have jare wisdom. Like people would call up and they would ask whatever. And I would give them some wisdom.
I think I think what we need to do is also port that over to CBS Sports Radio need to do some jare wisdom. Okay. But you I mean, but in all in all fairness, every day you do. No, in all seriousness, like you do spout wisdom every single segment like you don't waste a segment.
So how do you differentiate that in a you know, in specified programming as opposed to what you do every segment? I think it's it's it's less. See what he asked me was was more about life. It was advice. He asked he asked me for advice.
But you sprinkle in life in every segment. Yeah, but I think it's I think it's to solicit specific advice. People ask me my thoughts.
I like that. People ask me. They're like, Hey, you know, what do you think about the Lakers? I can tell you I can talk for 30 minutes about the Lakers. It's like, Hey, what do you think about Ovechkin?
Well, you know, I wish the guy would just stop playing hockey tomorrow. So people can ask me whatever they want about anything. Sure. But to ask me specific.
I think I I got a lot of advice. I do is let me let me ask you this question. I think your audience would be curious to I'm sure you've mentioned this before.
What is it? But aside from music, everyone knows you're an aficionado in that. Is there a topic you love talking about that you don't hit on enough because we are a sports based station that you want to talk about more?
Uh, what do I want to talk more about? No, I even do it here. Inclusion like I do. I do what I want.
I do. I do what I want. I talk about inclusion.
It doesn't matter if it's Special Olympics or whether it happens to be racial inclusion or gender inclusion like I talk about people getting a chance. So I mean, without me going full steam ahead and completely switching formats, I'm able to do what I want here. This is the beauty of it. Nobody ever calls and says, Hey, do this or do that.
Just show up and just talk. You know, I would agree. And sometimes the producer hears that like is the channel between the two parties that never happens either.
I mean, I mean, they trust you 100% on this, on this platform. And that's amazing that you've earned that. Yeah.
And I can't wait. Yeah. Yeah.
I need to start breaking stuff right now. Yeah. Well, that's just not in you though. You and I both know that. What, what four letter word should I say on the air right now? Tell me you say it first and I'll, I'll repeat after you.
Uh, yeah, I'm going to, I want to play the fifth on that one. I'm trying to think of a four letter word. I mean, what's a four letter word?
I mean, clay, love, love. That's a good one. That's a good one. We could say love on the radio. Yeah, you can say radio, but it's a five letter word. Oh yeah.
Well that radio wasn't it. Anyway, we're going to figure out a day. What day should we do?
Jr. Look, listen, everybody is in on our production meeting here. What, what day should we do Jr wisdom? Should it be like Friday or Monday? Friday? Maybe Friday, right? The reason you go Friday. Well first of all, the reason we don't say Thursday is because the Amazon games have actually been watchable this season. We packed on football, right?
Yeah. So I think if it's, if it's going to be a weekly thing, 52 times a year, make it Friday for sure. Jr wisdom. You know why? Because I give, I give your audience enough credit and I really do mean this. Even on the Fridays where some stations may not, this may not be apropos is they're calling pretty sober even on a Friday night, like heading into Saturday morning. So this could work on Friday. I'm with it.
Jr wisdom. We gotta, we gotta have the, the, the fancy voice man put something together for us, right? Yeah. Yeah. I like it. I like the fancy voice. You love that stuff.
Yeah. Fancy voice man. His name is Doug. We're going to have Doug the fancy voice man put something together. Doug's a good man. He's a good dude.
Also known as DD. Yeah. We only got good people at work here, right? Yeah.
I would say I would, I would definitely, we'll go with that. Everyone's, everyone's a team player on CBS sports radio for sure. Yeah. We love, we love everybody. Everybody's amazing. It's the JR sport b show here on CBS sports radio eight five five two one two four. CBS is eight five five two one two four C B S. Jecorey calling from Georgia. What's up Jecorey? You're on CBS sports radio.
We love you too. Hey, what's going on Jeremy? How you feeling tonight? I'm okay. That's cool.
That's cool. Man. I was calling him to get your take on a beyond Sanders, man. Everybody's trying to give him a rag on going to Colorado and stuff like that, man. I don't understand why. How you feeling about it? Oh man.
Well, let me, let me try to be succinct about it. We actually talked about that earlier in the show as he welcomed the new head coach for Jackson state and we talked about this last week, so I'm going to repeat it again. I have no problem with this man going ahead and getting his money.
None. What I'm very interested to see going into the future is how deep the roots are for Deion Sanders. Like how deep did he leave the roots in Jackson state? So here's the deal. He did a whole lot of big talking when he showed up about not just elevating Jackson state, but elevating other HBCUs. That's what came out of his mouth and he is well within his right to go do what he wants to do.
But for all the game that he talked about, just implementing change, are you here for just a quick flash or were you here to, to just actually have long standing sustainable change? I give you a different example. How about somebody's mother or father?
Somebody in their family who says, I'm going to be there for you. I'm going to show up for you. I'm going to do this for you. Okay, fine. You brought me gifts on Christmas, but were you there in a sustained fashion that's actually going to bring me value.
You can always point to the toy and say, well, you got me that and I rode around in it for a little while until the wheels fell off. But what about that? And so he's in Colorado. I want to know what the long standing results are from his participation. Was it more one sided and elevating for him or is he taking the approach of, I showed up, I said what I was going to do and I left that if that's the case, I don't respect that, but I'm not mad at the man for leaving. Well, I mean, I feel like he did what he did. I mean, he did what he had to do though. I mean, he brought what he needed to bring to the organization and apparently from what I heard, they didn't want to pay the man anyway. So, you know, they couldn't pay the man. I mean, he got paid $300,000. He just got a $6 million deal in Colorado took half out of his check to finish the renovations on place. Yes, correct.
But no, slow down. That doesn't change the fact of there is no way in purple hell they could have paid this man $6 million. The AD in Colorado also took the approach of, oh yeah, well, we got to pay him this per year.
Yeah, yeah, we don't even have it, but we'll work it out. So I'm not disagreeing with you about what he did. I am telling you, he talked a big game and whether or not he fulfilled all of that in reality in a sustainable fashion is to be seen. We don't have that answer yet. We'll find out.
We'll find out soon. Yeah. Thank you to Corey for calling from Georgia. Let's keep on rolling. Lewis calling from Rochester. You're on CBS Sports Radio. Hi, dear. Hope you're doing well tonight.
Thanks. I'm puzzled by why Brady chose to come back from retirement when he already had risen the crescendo of greatness. Few would argue that he's probably the greatest quarterback in the history of the NFL. And he did it at a risk where... Why? Why did Tom Brady...
I got an answer for this. Why did Tom Brady come back? That's the question, Lou?
Yes, you are sage. He should've asked you for advice before coming back. No, he shouldn't have because I'm not married to a Brazilian model.
I don't have three or four kids and I don't have seven Super Bowl rings. Let me ask you this, Lou. You ever been in love? You ever been in love? Yes.
You ever loved somebody that you probably shouldn't have hung around with? Yes. Okay. Well, I mean, there you have it. I mean, Tom Brady, he loves what he does.
And so who's to say? I can sit here in my seat and say, I'm sick of looking at him, you know, and I say that in jest. I want to see how far he can go, but then I also want to see the next...
I want to see new blood. And so Tom Brady, he loves what he's doing. I'm not mad at the guy. We know why he came back. He wants to play football. He's a competitor. Let's be real. What else has this man done in his professional life that has given him this type of feeling?
The answer is nothing. And I don't have to be in his shoes to know that. I understand.
So therefore, his relationship with his supermodel wife there and his family came second. We don't. Well, that's that's very easy to say. It is also easy to say. We don't know that. Can I surmise and say, well, OK, one plus one equals two.
His wife has talked about him leaving or stepping away from the game for years. She doesn't appreciate it. Sure. But at the same time, I ain't laying down in their bed with them when they have these conversations. So I leave that to him. None of my business. I'll let you step in, Olu. You go. Hey, you go find Giselle.
You think you'd be able to talk to her? I'm not sure. They both are coming off kind of shallow now. Oh, well, welcome to Earth. Human beings coming off shallow. Oh, yeah.
I'm a supermodel. Shallow. Whoa. Tom Brady. Shallow.
Can you imagine? Whoa. I mean, what word would we use to describe Aaron Rodgers, a hippie? Whoa. It's the J.R. sport. We show here with you on CBS Sports Radio.
I'll throw in another one. Whoa. It's like full house for my people who understand the reference to.
Whoa. It's the J.R. sport. We show eight five five two one two four CBS. We come back and take more of your calls.
And then I'm going to continue to talk about how ugly this new. Well, these new trophies are for the NBA here on CBS Sports Radio. You are listening to the J.R. Sport Brief on CBS Sports Radio. You are listening to the J.R.
Sport Brief on CBS Sports Radio. Hey, how you doing, man? I listen to you every night on the way home from work.
I appreciate what you're doing, man. You're a bad mamma jamma. Call in now at eight five five two one two four CBS.
The real bad mamma jamma is just as fun as she can be. It's the J.R. Sport Brief show you on CBS Sports Radio. The Sour J tweets me at J.R. Sport Brief says I'm an Uber driver.
Thanks for the shout out. The biggest NFL disappointment are the Packers without a doubt. Yeah, I could see that. Aaron Rodgers is back to talking about his ayahuasca says that it has helped eliminate his fear of dying. I'm not I'm not that's not a joke. That's that's what Aaron Rodgers said. Look, whatever makes this man happy, the 50 million dollars he's getting a year, I guess, is not doing the job. Aaron Rodgers is at the point in his career where he's just he's just that miserable guy at work making a lot of money that doesn't want to leave. It's like, why are you here? You don't want to be here. What are you doing collecting money for?
I think we can all relate. Not that one miserable guy at the job. You're like, why you just retire already? Money's good.
I'm just holding on for a few more years. Pretty bad. 8 5 5 2 1 2 4 CBS 8 5 5 2 1 2 4 CBS. Joe is calling from San Diego. You're on the J.R. Sport Brief. What's up, Joe? J.R., how are you? Happy holidays. Thank you.
Hey, I'm the most ugly or the M.A.B.P. for the NBA trophy. I think the word we're looking for was regal or prestigious as far as the trophy. Hell, no, it wasn't.
Yeah, it wasn't. No, here's the word abstract. The current NBA, the new NBA MVP award, which is supposed to be Michael Jordan, it looks more abstract.
It does not look like a classic bronze piece of art. It's very abstract. It has a black base. Everything on the base has a meaning. It has a crystal basketball with multiple points. It has a gold Michael Jordan reaching for the sky.
It is very abstract. That's the word. Okay.
Yeah, I haven't seen it yet. Okay. And then on the worst team in the NFL, I was looking as far as win loss. What about the Texans?
No, no, no, no, no, no. We weren't talking about the worst team. We were talking about the most disappointing. What did anybody expect from the Texans this year? Yeah, I know.
And then the other one, too. Yeah, yeah. Denver tied the second for worst record. Many got the Rams 4-9. Yeah, they're disappointing as well. No, see, those are teams that I would consider disappointing.
The Texans are doing what they were supposed to do. Yeah. Okay. Well, thank you, Joe. Hey, you're welcome, man. Have a good evening. You as well.
I'm trying my best. 855-212-4CBS. We got Tom calling from Chicago. What's up, Tom?
Hey, Jared. Great to talk to you. How you doing? I'm very well and you?
Very well. Thanks for having me on. Good. A special thank you to you for bringing exposure to Special Olympics and supporting people with intellectual disabilities. I want to just say I'm proud of you. That's a very good thing to do. Well, thank you, Tom. I got a special connection.
So, you know, the Down syndrome and all that. So anyway, that's number one. Number two, I can't believe $350 million after taxes, 50% up.
He's looking at 175 million, you know, to walk home with just incredible. Well, it's not too late for you or I to play shortstop or maybe for the Giants, but we can we can go somewhere else. That's what I want to make this real quick. You were not you every time you have the top six list. I'm so addicted to it. Good.
Every Wednesday night. Another tablet comes down from the mountain, you know, with your top six with I love it. What am I Moses? I'm Moses. All you got to do is grow a beard. You don't want beard like Moses. They'll start call you, you know, Moses Jr. I don't know if I want I don't know if I want to be Moses. How long did Moses live? A couple thousand years.
And he must have been real old. I don't know. Yeah, I don't got I don't got that patience.
I'm sick of Earthlings, so I don't got that much patience. But what else you got Tom? Let's see real quick. I covered that. You got a list really? The special or I'm sorry, the top six list. Yeah, one week before the NFL started.
Your question was great. Give me the six teams that will probably be in the playoffs. And you and I both agreed because of their defense and guys like Cam Jordan. We both agreed that the New Orleans Saints. Yeah, you know, would be there. But I thought so too.
What for nine? Obviously, you know, Russell Wilson. I'm not really sure what his problem is. What's his problem? I mean, he can't he can't move the way he used to. And I know his big problem is bigger problem right now. He's in concussion protocol. He look he look in bad shape. I know we make light of Russell here and regards to his attitude and some of his statements always seem very canned and programmed, but you don't want to see anybody just getting pounded into the turf like that.
He had no idea where he was. So all the best to Russell and Tom, I appreciate you man. Always a pleasure. Much love and respect you guys.
I'll see it. You as well. Thank you Tom for calling from Chicago. It's the JR sport ratio on 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. Thank you, man. We love you down here in Texas. Okay, 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 855-212-4CBS. I'm sitting here in the studio in Phoenix.
Charles Barkley is on a television in front of me. Are they getting ready to give this man a tattoo? Yeah, that's not manufactured at all, JR. Where they giving him a tattoo at? Oh, he's not getting a tattoo. He's used to see like, you know, how far they can like push it until he, you know, freaks out a little bit. The lady who's going to give him the tattoo, she has like tattoos up and down her arms, her neck. Well, he's not getting them. He's going to put it on his ass, his head.
He's a funny guy. I don't think he's, no, I think, I think it's like, I think they're just like making, make like doing like a mock tattoo thing. Oh, they put a, they put Mike Tyson's tattoo on Ernie's face and they put a, well that's a big old ass.
They gave Shaq a big old ass and put M's on his ass. I mean just, somebody in the building is getting a tattoo. Shout outs to all my folks who work at Turner Sports. This is one of the, it's an amazing place. I know somebody in there is getting a tattoo. 855-212-4CBS.
That's 855-212-4CBS. Man, I've had so much fun here in Phoenix. Show has been fun. People have been fun.
NBA MVP trophies still ugly. Let's get your calls in before I got a rollout. Let's go to Leo from Atlanta. You're on the JR Support Brief Show. Boy, JR, man, mama, jamma, Moses, you doing it, baby. Love your lead in music. I've been listening to everything tonight. Here's my thing.
You know what? If you comparing yourself to athletes, get your mind off other people's wallets. If you're a journalist and you love sports like you do, you know what? Pursue it, raise your greatness, ask questions to find out why and how you can relate. Don't worry about what Dion is making because quite frankly, he did a whole lot that he could to help there. If you're good, elevate yourself. Find your way to make your own money. Don't worry about what other people make. And it's funny, don't complain. Just elevate yourself.
If you find a job that you're passionate about, you'll never work a day in your life. Good show tonight, bro. You might want to put that mama jamma show on your lead in music.
It's always fly. Thank you, bro. Thank you, Leo. Leo's trying to turn the show into a whole different thing. You know where to find that song.
I ain't gonna play it here. Harry's calling from New Mexico. You're on CBS Sports Radio. What's up, Harry?
What's up, man? I wanted to actually touch up on that Dak Prescott, Jaylen Hurts comparison y'all were talking about earlier. So it's kind of impossible to actually pick one as a favorite. This is the first time you've seen Jaylen Hurts have the same cadence, the same play calling the same quarterbacks coach, the same head coach, the same offensive coordinator all and all into the second season of his actual career. This is the first time you've actually seen a Jaylen Hurts career.
So it's very easy to say you want to go with that. But let's look at the other side of Dak Prescott. When Dak Prescott has talent more, he's an RPO quarterback, but he's not even running an RPO. He's just staying back in the back like a statue behind an offensive line, whether it's a three man or a four man rush. And he's still throwing the ball at six or seven men on interceptions. He turned himself into Kellen Moore Minnie.
And that's what's wrong with Dak Prescott right now is that offensive coordinator. Damn. Well, I'll keep it straight up. No, no, no. Don't do any more talking. Stop, please. Oh, stop.
I had to put him on hold. Damn. It's like that. You ever you ever drive it in your car and that train goes by and you are stuck waiting for the train to go by and I'm talking about this train, like the longest train in the world. All my folks who live in Atlanta, you stuck behind that train over by Marietta, behind State Farm Arena.
And you just got to wait like 20 minutes for the train to go by. You're like, OK, when is it going to end? Harry, you OK? Thank you, Harry. Hold on, Harry. Harry, I don't know if Harry's still here or if he left. Yeah, I'm still here. I'm still here. OK, well, thank you for slowing down here. I'm going to give you something very simple. It's OK.
It's all about how you surround. Oh, no. Oh, no. I put you on hold again. The train won't stop running.
Please. It's the Harry's sport brief show. Hey, listen, Harry.
You can analyze two guys. I don't give a damn who their offensive coordinator is. When Dak Prescott went down with his broken ankle, it's a shame that I have to put you on hold to actually get a word out.
I don't want to hang up on you. Dak Prescott, even though it was still early in the season, he was on pace to pass for 6000 yards. And so I am less concerned with the current system. I'm not evaluating Dak Prescott right now and saying, oh, yeah, yeah, yeah. Based on what I've only seen this season, I would say Jalen hurts.
So that's not the case. I've seen enough of Dak all across the board. And yes, they're doing more by running the football. We see all of that.
But in the grand scheme of things, I would take Jalen hurts because I think he has more potential. It doesn't have anything to do with Kellen Moore. Does that make sense, Harry? Yeah, it makes sense. Well, thank you. I appreciate you. I'm gonna let you go now. Okay. Oh, yeah.
It's just all about who you surround yourself. Yeah, we heard that, Harry. Thank you for calling from Mexico.
Sheesh. What are we doing here? Tony's calling from Massachusetts. You're on the JR Support Reef show. What's up, Jay?
I'm gonna make this real quick. So my man Dion, I don't have a problem with him getting his money, but I thought for everything he was talking, he was like gonna put that, you know, our black colleges on the map, man. Maybe get some of that money coming. Maybe get some of them number one athletes in the country instead of going to all these other programs that's already established and maybe start doing something and building something with our black colleges, man.
Maybe you can turn around and get paid by a black college and you don't have to even go to Colorado. I'm just gonna hang up and listen, man. And yeah, you said it.
You said it perfectly. That he did a lot of talking, but are we going to see the long run? He was. He showed up. He showed up. He hit a home run and he left. Okay, nice. Everybody who did not.
But are you going to come back the next game and do it again? No, he left. Mike is here from Ohio. What's up, Mike? How you doing, man? Excellent.
Go ahead quickly. So quickly, I just want to talk about the bills real quick. I'm a huge bills fan.
I grew up in Buffalo. I think for some reason last year was their year had they got past chief. I think they would have blew out the bangles and they would have blood the Rams. I think personally that the bills are past their pride. They don't look too sharp this year like we're used to see. And then I think they missed their opportunity to too soon.
I wouldn't go there right now. Too soon. Makes sense.
Can we see them get through this year? And I know Josh has been hurt, but too soon. I hear you. I hear you. Thank you. I'm hoping so.
Thank you. No, don't don't rush it. Just take take time. Just take your time.
We can't just put them in a trash bin all of a sudden. Larry's calling from Chicago. What's up, Larry? Oh, Larry, I don't know. He's listening to me. Rich is calling from Chicago. What's up, Rich? I'll be fast. I know you're up against it.
No, you had a quick and maybe I missed it because I jumped on late. But when you take a look at the injury to Kyler Murray, what kind of impact do you think that's going to have? I mean, if I'm a general manager, I think Lamar Jackson and Justin Fields are going to be shaking their heads thinking this isn't going to be good to tie me up. The big money might be gone.
And then you got to ask yourself. Second question is, do you think it's going to affect the NFL draft with who they draft? No one. They need a durable guy. They're going to run around and get killed. No, I think I think overall the league is moving towards quarterbacks who can get outside the pocket. I don't think that's going to change or stop in any regard. And if you want to think about what this means for quarterbacks who are up next, forget the NFL draft. If you think Aaron Rodgers making 50 million dollars is like the big step. Wait until the contract.
I should say that Joe Burrow is going to have in front of him. Wait until the contract that Justin Herbert will have in front of him. Those dudes will be making bank. They will be the next guys who wake up and all of a sudden is boom. Where are we starting at?
50. That's the starting mark. And you can go ahead and thank Patrick Mahomes and then subsequently you could thank Aaron Rodgers for that. These guys are making money. Carlos Correa making money 13 years 350. It's good to be a shortstop. It's good to be a starting quarterback.
It's good to be a pitcher if you can actually throw the ball, which I assume a pitcher would be able to do. And these dudes are being absolutely ridiculous. Man, I've had fun here in Phoenix. Hey, shop, you should just join me out here. What are you staying in New York for? It is a little cold down here.
I'll tell you that much. Oh, it's cold out here in Phoenix, man. It's cold. What?
You mean what? I compare it to 28 degrees, 15 degree wind chill in New York City. Hey, man, when that sun goes down in the desert and that wind hits you and you got to worry about a mountain lion scooping you up. You tell me what's more treacherous, a New York City 28 in snow or a mountain lion snatching you out the desert? Well, do you stay still when you see the mountain lion or do you provoke? I stretch my arms out wide and they tell you you got to be intimidating. Well, you can't be a threat. That's the most important thing. Forget whether you're going to be an intimidating force or not.
You can't make it seem like you are going to rain on their well-being and their safety. Yeah, well, I'm still here. What do you think happened to Mountain Lion? Well done, sir. Come on now. Not easy. Listen, George of the Jungle, what does he got on me?
Nothing. By the way, he's getting some Oscar buzz. George of the Jungle? Yeah, Brendan Fraser. He's getting an Oscar for what? He did a movie called The Whale.
I'm pretty sure that's the title. I might be butchering, but there's something with the whale in it and it was like this incredible once-in-a-lifetime performance from Brendan Fraser. It's considered to be one of the all-time great cinematic performances and it's a huge comeback.
I haven't seen him since George of the Jungle in 1994. That's the point. Well, remember, he was in The Mummy. People forget that. I didn't see The Mummy. Fair enough. I know The Rock was in it. I ain't seen no stupid Mummy movie. If I want to see Mummies, I go into the New York City subway. That's just facts.
That's a good point. That's the J.R.R. Sportbree show here with you on CBS Sports Radio. I'll be back with you tomorrow, 10 p.m. Eastern Time, 7 p.m. Pacific. I'm hanging out west this week, hanging out in Phoenix.
I'm going to be in Portland. I'm just having a good old time. Somebody needs to send me food. I'm starving. We'll be back tomorrow, new top six list.
We're going to take a look at some amazing coaches and some of their absolutely amazing quotes. If you miss me, you miss us. In the meantime, I'm at J.R.R. Sportbree on all social media. Hey, shop, where can people get you at? At the Good Shepherd Underscore. Yeah, OK. That's that's some good stuff. The J.R.R.
Sportbree show here on CBS Sports Radio is done. But don't move because I said so. And more importantly, Amy Lawrence. She's coming up next. She's great.
