You're listening to the J.R. Sportbrief on CBS Sports Radio. You're listening to the J.R. Sportbrief on CBS Sports Radio.

That's right, this is CBS Sports Radio and you are locked in to the J.R. Sportbrief show. Thank you oh so much to our main man Alex and James Boccioni for helping to make sure that this show runs smooth, helping to put it together. I appreciate y'all. We're coming to you live from the Rocket Mortgage Studios.

Whether you want to buy a home or refinance your current one, Rocket can. Happy Monday to you. I can tell you who I really appreciate.

You can also listen on your local CBS Sports Radio affiliate. You can tune in on Sirius XM channel 158.

And if you have a smart speaker, ask it to play CBS Sports Radio. I hope you had a tremendous weekend if you didn't. That sucks, but it's Monday night now. I'm going to be hanging out here with you for the next four hours. This is when I get started.

10 p.m. Eastern Time, 7 p.m. Pacific. And if you want to give me a holler, it's real simple. I'm at J.R. Sportbrief everywhere on social media.

It's Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, you name it, you can find me there. And if you follow me on social media, you'll already know what the hell we're going to talk about tonight. You'll already know.

And if you don't, I might as well fill you in right now. NFL preseason is underway and we've seen some of the rookie quarterbacks in action. In a few minutes, I'm going to take a quick walk and review by some of these quarterbacks and, you know, talk about who impressed, who did the best job, who made the best best job, who might have a bright future, at least in the immediate future. And we'll get into that.

Desmond Ritter and Malik Willis and Kenny Pickett, we'll go there. Brett Favre had an admission last week that is starting to gain steam, no big surprise. And it's a concussion admission. How many concussions has Brett Favre suffered? A couple of hundred? No. Hundreds? No. More than a thousand?

Maybe. You'll hear from Brett Favre. Speaking of hearing something, over the weekend, Giannis Atetokounmpo decided to put a minor scare into the fans or the fans that really love the Milwaukee Bucks. Giannis says that maybe one day he plays for the Bulls.

We'll get into that. The NBA hasn't formally announced its Christmas Day schedule, but we have a better idea of what it might look like. Kevin Durant still doesn't want to play for the Brooklyn Nets, but he did address one rumor that he would potentially retire. He says no. Antonio Brown tells Jerry Jones, I'm not retired. Call me. Jimmy Garoppolo, the story came out that Jimmy did not want to be called at all in the offseason by the 49ers.

And Alex Rodriguez, this man says that he wishes Fernando Tatis Jr. and some of these other young guys would learn from him. We'll get into it. We got a lot to do.

James is holding it down on the board. I have a very important question to ask James, and I'm going to do it right now. Mr. Boccioni, how are you? What's up, JR? Doing well, man. Good to work with you. Likewise, man. You're a busy guy, huh?

That's nowadays, yeah. He just said James is a busy guy. Shout-outs to James.

Shout-outs to my main man, Shep, as well. He'll be back with us this week. Now, we talked about, or I just briefly mentioned, the NFL preseason. There's a couple of things that you can get out of it. A day out the house if you actually go to any of these games. Most people are selling their tickets for cheap. This is an opportunity to get out of the house and run away from your family if you want to go see a preseason matchup.

But, you know, I'm not going to go to any of these games. It's an opportunity for the guys who will be fighting for a position or just a roster spot to give it their all and just try to be impressive. And then, I guess from a fan's perspective, this is an opportunity for you to look at your incoming players. To get a first look what these rookies look like as pros. And come on, we know this. Even if you're selected in the first round, even if you're a highly touted draft pick, a lot of times you're facing off against the second stringer and the third stringer and some guy who you've never heard of who in a couple of months is going to be working a desk job just like you and me. And so, you can't go too high or you can't go too low when you come into some of these performances.

And these performances, basically they're done. We've seen Malik Willis. He helped get things going on Thursday night. The Ravens took on the Titans. The Ravens won 23-10. Who the hell cares? Before a guy drafted out of Liberty University selected number 86 overall. It took a year and a day after Kenny Pickett was selected to get a quarterback. And Malik Willis ran out there for the Tennessee Titans. There was no Tannehill.

What's the point of sending him out there? And Malik, he was 6 of 11 for 107 yards. He had a rushing touchdown. He looked damn good running with the football. But there's so much work that he has to do when it comes down to passing the ball. Too many times where he put his head down and just said, screw throwing the rock.

I'm just going to run it. And so, even his own head coach, Mike Vrabel, after watching Malik Willis, yeah, you can all be excited about what he did when he actually ran. But when it comes down to his overall decision making, when to throw and when not to throw and where to throw, Mike Vrabel, he did not pull any punches. Listen.

I need to try to throw the ball when guys are open, be more decisive. So we'll evaluate that and see if there's a timing issue or what's going on. But just wanted to get him out there and wanted to see how he responded. I know he had time. And he did okay.

I mean, there were some good plays and obviously some plays that we're going to have to look at the timing on the release and if we're making the right decisions. This man is still, he's learning mechanics. He's trying to get it together as an NFL quarterback. Maybe that's why he fell all the way to the third round.

They're literally working on his mechanics. What about someone selected higher than him? What about Desmond Ritter? Desmond Ritter went out there and he played on Friday night. Debuted for the Falcons and he didn't just debut for the Falcons. Desmond Ritter helped them come back and beat the Lions.

A 21-yard touchdown with about 90 seconds left to ultimately give them the lead in the victory. Come on now. Desmond Ritter is searching for respect for everything that he did in college. This is not Cincinnati.

It's not. And throughout the course of this game, even having some confidence, he's basically going to be Marcus Mariota's backup. And sure, if you're an Atlanta Falcons fan, we know what Marcus Mariota is.

You don't know what Desmond Ritter is. Is he going to supplant Marcus Mariota? Is he going to elevate himself into being the future starting quarterback for the Falcons?

Who knows? But at least for Friday night in Detroit, not too shabby. 10-22, 103 yards. I told you about the game-winning touchdown. He threw two touchdowns overall and he did not throw an INT. He even rushed for 59 yards. Not too bad. And so thinking about what he's capable of, second-year head coach Arnold Smith, he was impressed in his performance.

Take a listen. I thought Marcus came out and he was sharp. He really operated. I thought at a high level and that was good to see to take a drive, go all the way down the field and score, you know, match theirs. And then I was proud of Desmond. He came in there and you want to see these guys out of the handle adversity. It wasn't perfect. A lot to learn from, but he kept swinging and, you know, had some plays.

We, you know, we got caught a break there on one with the penalty. And then, you know, he had a couple drops, but he didn't. That's what I like about him. I like his mindset and he just found a way to make a play at the end. Oh yeah. Well, a little understated there. I guess you don't want to give the rookie too damn too much credit.

You don't want to do that. And then you had somebody else. He was the first quarterback selected in the draft earlier this year. This man, pardon the pun, he was the first quarterback. This man, pardon the pun, he was picked apart because of the size of his hands. Whose hands are too small? How's he going to throw the football with tiny hands?

Oh, he's doing hand stretch exercises. It's Kenny Pickett. Kenny Pickett played as well over the weekend on Friday and Kenny Pickett, or excuse me, on Saturday and Kenny Pickett, he didn't just go out there. He did the same thing that Ritter did. Kenny Pickett led a game-winning drive for the Steelers to beat the Seahawks.

He was almost perfect. 13 of 15 passes, 95 yards, two TDs, zero INTs. He played the entire second half after Mitch Trubisky went out there along with Mason Rudolph and he helped them win. 24-yard touchdown pass with three seconds left in the game. Not too shabby for a guy who is trying to replace Ben Roethlisberger. It's always great to hear Mike Tomlin speak and this is what he had to say about his rookie. You know, he moved his group. He played situational football. He displayed a competitive spirit.

A lot of good things to build on from a first performance standpoint. Not too shabby and we know this. Mitch Trubisky is going to start. He's going to start until he sucks or he gets hurt and then you'll have to look at what Mason does but Kenny Pickett, they didn't select him at number 20 out of Pittsburgh just to sit on the bench and be a mascot. They selected this man at number 20 to ultimately go out there and hopefully play.

Malik Willis, he was taken in the third round. Less strings attached but you don't think it'd be a beautiful thing in Tennessee if he eventually supplanted Ryan Tannehill and it may take an entire year and then you have Desmond Ritter also a third rounder out of Cincinnati. There's not a damn thing exciting about Marcus Mariota.

It's basically a placeholder. Marcus Mariota is a placeholder until the Falcons can actually pick up their next full-time starting quarterback. Is that going to be Desmond Ritter? Is he going to get a chance or an opportunity? Is Marcus Mariota going to stay healthy?

We don't know that. And so here you have three quarterbacks, rookie quarterbacks trying to make their mark in the NFL, trying to get things started. And this is a difficult choice because none of these guys are like world changers or game changers. None of these guys have come in as highly touted. None of these quarterbacks have been looked upon to be the next best thing. None of them will probably even get a chance to start right out of the box this season. And so typically when you could look at quarterbacks and say that's the guy, there's no Trevor Lawrence in this group. And Trevor Lawrence trying to make some major moves in his second year, especially now that the his old head coach is not coaching the team anymore, it's Urban Meyer.

Who has the best chance of having success this year? Getting out onto the field? Is it Kenny Pickett battling it out with Mitch Trubisky? Is it Malik Willis playing behind Ryan Tannehill? Is it Desmond Ritter along with Marcus Mariota?

There's a couple of things here. I think Malik Willis will see the field, spot duty, running situations, knowing that you need some yards. Mike Vrabel is not an idiot. We will see Malik Willis every now and then just to keep things spicy with that running game that is already crazy with the Tennessee Titans.

You got King Henry out there. You might as well throw another dude in the mix. You don't know if they're going to pass, if they're going to throw, they're going to run.

You have no idea. Malik Willis is going to play, not out of the gate. Desmond Ritter, Marcus Mariota, is anybody supposed to feel excited about him? Are people running around Atlanta with with Mariota jerseys?

The answer is no. People would love to see Desmond Ritter supplant him and maybe get a couple of starts in. And then you got Kenny Pickett.

I told you he was taking high. Big expectations for him. It's tough to say, oh man, we're going to have a career that Ben Roethlisberger had.

You're not looking for that. But Kenny Pickett, when is he going to find his way out onto the field? Who knows? I'll tell you this, who has the best chance of success this year? Malik Willis is gone. He ain't playing a full season unless there's an injury, not happening. Kenny Pickett is pretty much trying to move Trubisky out the way. And then you have Desmond Ritter competing with Marcus Mariota.

This might sound crazy. I think the guy who has the best chance and opportunity is probably Desmond Ritter. Because I don't know if Marcus Mariota can actually stay healthy for an entire season. I don't know if Marcus Mariota is going to be able to go out there and just play all 17 games.

And so I want to say it's a coin toss between Kenny Pickett and Ritter. It's really, I believe, going to come down to injury. Is Trubisky going to stink?

Is he going to suck that bad that they want to put Kenny Pickett out there and get it over with? I'm not so sure. I also know that the Steelers, they're not a, hey, we're going to just bend over and get beat up organization.

That's not how it works. The Falcons are in a full rebuild. The Falcons are in a space where it's just like, man, we might have the weakest roster in the NFL right now. What are we playing for? We drafted Ritter.

Let's see what we got sooner than later. And so, yeah, it's only one preseason game. Kenny Pickett, game-winning drive and play. Desmond Ritter, game-winning drive and play.

Malik Willis still has some work to do. But by the time we get to week 17, who's going to have the best chance to play? It's probably Desmond Ritter. Who will have the best season? I would say it's Kenny Pickett if he can play. But I'm going to give that to Desmond Ritter as well.

It's tough going for these rookies. And none of them named Trevor Lawrence. It's the JR sport re-show here with you on CBS Sports Radio. The phone lines are open. That's 855-212-4CBS.

That's 855-212-4CBS. There's no Trevor Lawrence in this group. There's not even a Zach Wilson.

There's nobody expected just to go out there and start on day one. What quarterback do you think has the best chance to play? And which quarterback, which rookie, do you think will have the best season? 855-212-4CBS. That's 855-212-4CBS. You're locked in to the JR sport brief show. You're listening to the JR sport brief on CBS Sports Radio. You're listening to the JR sport brief on CBS Sports Radio.

God bless. Wish you well and all the best JR because you really are my favorite sports DJ on the air. Call in now at 855-212-4CBS. It's the JR sport brief show here with you on CBS Sports Radio. Phone lines are open if you want to give me a holler.

That's 855-212-4CBS. To open up the show we took a look at the the rookie quarterbacks, the young guns. Kenny Pickett over the weekend. Game-winning drive and touchdown. Desmond Ritter game-winning drive and touchdown. Malik Willis not too shabby. Showed some electrifying plays but also showed that he can improve as a passer.

There's room for improvement. On the other end of things which one of them is going to play? Who's actually going to get a chance and an opportunity knowing that Kenny Pickett is looking at Trubisky, Desmond Ritter is looking at Mariota and there ain't no doubt Ryan Tannehill is in front of Malik Willis.

And I had to mention two names that uh they got their shot. This was last year. Trevor Lawrence went number one. Zach Wilson went number two.

And there's going to be big expectations at least for both of these guys to to make an impact. Trevor Lawrence had a crap season last year and why did he? Did you see the the circus and the sideshow surrounding him down in Jacksonville? You got a head coach who never had a professional coaching job in his life.

People were making fun of him because of how he he tried to babysit grown men. And then there was a whole situation where oh yeah he decided to leave the team after a loss, hang out at a bar that that he happened to own and he was hanging out with a woman or young lady who was not his wife. That's Urban Meyer.

And that's just the initial story to start. And so now Trevor Lawrence he has a a grown-up and a former NFL player and a former coach and a former quarterback and a Super Bowl champion and Doug Peterson as his coach. And Trevor Lawrence would probably have a great year number two and good for him. I know he threw a touchdown in their their opening or not their opening their recent game in the preseason. And then meanwhile I think New York Jets fans they're they're used to this type of pain. We know that Zach Wilson taking on the Eagles on Friday night he didn't have the greatest of starts. Zach Wilson's entire offseason into the season you could say it sucked. The rumor started off after training camp that there are more stories about him breaking up with his girlfriend, hanging out with his mom's friends. There's a whole theme about this in the offseason.

Season gets started the first game of the preseason I should say. And what happens to Zach Wilson? He goes down to an injury. People are talking about oh my god he he looked like he tore his ACL. He tries to run around and darts and instead of running out of bounds he's trying to juke a guy and he just goes down into the turf.

Not a person touched him. And so basically New York Jets fans had to wait almost 18 hours to learn that he didn't tear his ACL but he suffered a bone bruise and a torn meniscus and that he'll be out two to four weeks and he is set to have surgery tomorrow. Zach Wilson suffered a knee injury last season with the New York Jets and now he's having his knee sculpt before the season starts and we're supposed to expect that his knee is going to hold up for the entire year. I hope so. This is the New York Jets.

Bad news is it typically follows them. I don't know what to expect from the guy. The New York Jets selected him at number two. I know they hope that he works out. If he doesn't people are going to start looking at Joe Douglas and saying hey man how did how do we do this?

Was this necessary? In 13 games last season and he was better when he came back. Nine touchdowns 11 interceptions. All these stories about how Zach Wilson got bigger and and stronger. New York Jets got him weapons and Garrett Wilson. Uzama they got from the Bengals.

Breece Hall they drafted him as well. They got him all the weapons in the world. Now he's supposed to go out there and perform.

Make the most of it. So whether you're drafted at number one or number two overall it's a hard knock life if you're a quarterback in the NFL. Trying to make an impact is not easy. 855-212-4CBS. Dave is calling from Buffalo. You're on CBS Sports Radio.

Hey JR appreciate taking my call tonight man. I think you look at these three quarterbacks and I think there's no doubt that Desmond Ritter in Atlanta definitely has a good chance to play pretty soon because I think Mariota is a guy that's more of a wildcat type quarterback. I don't view him as a long-term answer more of a stop gap there and I think Arthur Smith being you know an offensive coach. I think you know being a young guy there I think they Atlanta's kind of in a rebuild mode. I think they'll give him a shot because they Pittsburgh you know with Trubisky there I think they won. They're going to give him every opportunity to play before Pickett really is truly ready being they're kind of an old-school organization and I just think Willis to me is a year or two away with Tannehill being there so I think that's the best opportunity for a guy to really get in there of this rookie class right away.

Oh no I agree with you Dave and I'd take it a step further. You said that Atlanta is kind of in a rebuilding situation? Oh hell no. Atlanta is in a full-blown rebuilding situation and shout outs to all my friends here in Atlanta down well right down the road from me here at at Mercedes-Benz Stadium they're having the open practice for the fans and good for them. I think you can get in there for like five dollars tonight and you can watch the Atlanta Falcons play and Desmond Ritter is out there sure of course Marcus Mariota is out there sure of course. I tell you this much though you just heard what Dave said I agree ain't no ain't no kind of rebuild they're rebuilding they can't come out and say it but it's obvious as obvious can be you have a new head coach taking over now and Arthur Smith moving into his second year. Matt Ryan is out the door Julio Jones is gone he's now playing in Tampa after another year away he was just in Tennessee this is a full-blown rebuild for the Falcons and I agree Desmond Ritter he's gonna get every chance and every opportunity to play it's a hard knock life here in the NFL. I mean there's not a there's not a one-size-fits-all scenario let's think about some of the most successful quarterbacks Aaron Rodgers had to sit behind Brett Farr for years until they got to the point where it's just like alright Brett you ain't coming back we're sticking with Aaron. You look at Patrick Mahomes he had to sit behind Alex Smith and then he comes out the gate boom MVP Lamar Jackson he was behind Flacco until the end of the year and then he got his first full chance and opportunity he moved. Justin Herbert was not supposed to start with Tyra Taylor got a needle in the lung and he lit it up you want to see your quarterback sooner than later but the idea that he has to sit down for two years and three years and four years no they're drafting you as a rookie and they're trying to see when they can win with you before you get expensive it's as simple as that it's a hard knock life trying to play in this league to get the opportunity and speaking of Brett Favre oh my god yeah Aaron Rodgers had to sit behind him but Brett Favre he ain't playing anymore but he's doing a lot of talking he's always talking to somebody with some show or or some podcast or Sirius XM or whatever the case might be but Brett Favre did some talking last week and this this this conversation is starting to gain some steam he talked about his head he talked about his own mindset he talked about injuries to his brain Brett Favre said something that is not surprising but is very very concerning concerning I'm going to tell you about it when we come back on the other side I'll leave the phone lines open 855-212-4CBS it's the JR Sport Brief show you're listening to the JR Sport Brief on CBS Sports Radio you're listening to the JR Sport Brief on CBS Sports Radio hey JR how you doing man I appreciate listening to you every night man it works man you can just enjoy it and I appreciate all your insights call in now at 855-212-4CBS it's the JR Sport Brief show here with you on CBS Sports Radio it's kind of crazy we're about to go from one end of the spectrum to the other you know we opened up the show tonight talking about all these young quarterbacks in the NFL guys who are looking for their start looking for their opportunity trying to get going in the NFL whether it's second year players like Trevor Lawrence or Zach Wilson you know by the time we get to December and January we're going to have a better idea of who they are at this point and and what they might be and then you have incoming rookies guys like Desmond Ritter Malik Willis Kenny Pickett we just talked about them as well trying to get started trying to get their feet wet and then you have someone who has been in the NFL for approximately 20 years you have someone who won three MVPs you have someone who is a Super Bowl champion you have someone who is a hall of famer you have someone like like Brett Favre after going and playing almost 300 consecutive games which is even crazy to think about at this point to even say it at the quarterback position we know Brett Favre was out there and got his career started with the Falcons but it really didn't get cracking with the Packers because of his substance abuse issues and painkillers etc and then he ended we know unfortunately with the Vikings after a stop with the New York Jets 297 consecutive starts Brett Favre was an iron man and we know Brett Favre was running around slinging that rock like he was in the backyard and we know that Brett Favre could take a licking and keep on going so let's think about that for a second you got Trevor Lawrence starting off and then you got Brett Favre who basically played forever I mean to a certain degree Brett Favre didn't know when to go away is he coming is he going is he leaving is he staying is he retiring do the Packers still want him no we want Aaron go that way Brett Favre played forever and so in the meantime what has Brett Favre been doing he's been selling you jeans Brett Favre has been selling you copper fit for your knees Brett Favre is just he's a media pundit and good for him pops up on Sirius XM NFL radio he just pops up everywhere gives his opinions and why not Brett Favre is about to be 53 years old he's a legend he's living a good life well last week he spoke to Bubba the Love Sponge and he just uh I'm not gonna say he surprised anybody but the conversation turned towards his health it's the the conversation turned towards concussions the conversation moved to Brett Favre and you played almost 20 years how many concussions have you had are we talking one two three or maybe a few Brett Favre took it a step further Bubba the Love Sponge asked him how many times you got a concussion how many times do you think this is what Brett Favre said if you'd asked me this 10 years ago how many concussions I've had I've said three where and I the reason I was set three I thought concussions were when you get knocked out where you black out for a period of time you don't know where you are memory loss um dizzy you know a boxer gets knocked out he tries to get up his legs rubber that's a concussion right what we now know is concussions happen all the time so like you you get tackled and your head hits the turf and you you're you see you know flashes of light or ringing in your ears but you're able to play or you get that stinger that little stinger for that little stinger for five or six seconds that's a good question so based on that thousands had to be because every time I hit at the turf there was ringing or stars going flash bulbs but I was still able to play and that's what's kind of frightening about the concussion thing damn damn Brett Favre stopped playing football in 2010 it wasn't until about six years later where the NFL decided to have like a full concussion protocol we're talking about the referees being able to go ah man you gotta sit down knowing that you have to go get checked in the tent if you don't look all the way there that was after Brett Favre retired that was after the fact and I told you about all the games that Brett Favre played in 297 consecutive starts that's in the regular season you can throw in you can throw in 24 playoff starts that's 321 games that Brett Favre was out there just being a human pinata a crash test dummy getting thrown around by everybody playing up in Green Bay and I ain't no damn scientist not by any stretch of the imagination but I'm sure when it is freezing cold out there that getting hit on that grass it doesn't feel all that good don't feel great I'm not sure that it's gonna give you give like this is a like like a mattress like this is the softest turf when it's frozen and so for all the success that Brett Favre has had damn it he might have to pay for it he might be paying for it right now he's only 52 years old he's gonna be 53 and you would think hope and expect that he has many years of life right in front of him what is that quality of life actually gonna look like and so if Brett Favre is running around telling everybody that he had thousands of concussions then I mean what the hell does this look like for everybody else playing and sure there are people who played an era's pride in him they're still doing okay relatively speaking we see guys older than him who are running around and you know that their cognitive abilities are still there sure well what about somebody like I don't know Terry Bradshaw we see him every Sunday on Fox damn it we've had Terry Bradshaw right here on the show Terry Bradshaw is about to be 74 years old every now and then and I've spoken to this man as well I love him he's the last New York Jets quarterback well he's basically to win the championship a long ass time ago 1969 this is Joe Namath Joe Namath is 79 years old is he out there making as many appearances no but he's out there but to hear Brett Favre say over the course of 20 years I've probably had thousands of concussions that's that's scary please I'm not trying to sign up for that I want to ask our main man hey James Boccioni when you heard that thousands more than a thousand I should say what was the first thing that came to your mind man I think you said it I think scary is the word that I thought of immediately I mean thousands of concussions that's you know and if he's just realizing this now how many other guys are out there who think that they've suffered thousands of concussions it's a really scary idea to think about it's scary as how and you know I just mentioned individuals who we see speak Terry Bradshaw probably the best example I mean I would say he's probably the the oldest quarterback that you can look at and see on a full-time basis because of his job okay Tony Romo recently retired retired relatively young Tom Brady has a three hundred and forty fifty million dollar job waiting on him and he really doesn't get hit like that Terry Bradshaw is there every Sunday he's doing the media rounds every week just about feels like and it's just it's it's just kind of mind-boggling thousands and so here's the deal even though Terry Bradshaw or Tony Romo I'm sure he's fine even though we might see and hear from them more often than others that doesn't mean that they're always good like we don't know what they're experiencing we don't know what they're going through when the cameras are off we don't know how they feel when they get up in the morning and I'm not just talking about physically we know that the NFL is gonna it's gonna beat the living hell out of you there's a reason why Brett Favre is running around selling copper fit so your knees feel better and your back feels better damn it I could probably use some of that that copper fit for my back right now but the fact is we hear so many stories of NFL players who come out publicly every now and then and say people don't talk about the pain people don't talk about the injuries nobody wants to talk about the negative side effects come on last week Marshawn Lynch got arrested in Las Vegas this man played played the running back position he was a bruising back he might be funny he might be hilarious he marches to the beat of his own drum the man was drunk at eight o'clock in the morning he had no wheel on the driver's side of his car they said he was in and out of sleep he got hit with a du-8 his lawyer says no it was no dui but if you saw the man he had no shoe on and he looked no worse for wear and I'm sure he has his own issues and problems amongst all of the entertaining and great things that he does for the community you want to tell me that that some of these things aren't as a result of not just his lifestyle but time in the league like people all over the world everybody has problems everybody has issues but when it's your job when one of the hazards of your job is to just repeatedly get hit in the dome when that's your career man we can tell you that when that's your career man we can see some of the results and they ain't all that pretty it's not something that I'd sign up for and so here we have Brett Favre just kind of shocking the living hell out of everybody more than a thousand concussions no thanks I hope Brett Favre everything works out for him that's crazy it's the JR Sport Reshow here with you on CBS Sports Radio it makes me even think further than that like how the hell are we going to continue on with this this game the NFL it has to change right I'm going to talk more about this on the other side it's the JR Sport Reshow CBS Sports Radio.
