JR talks about a well-known cheater named Gerrit Cole


You're listening to the JR Sport Brief on CBS Sports Radio.

You're listening to the JR Sport Brief on CBS Sports Radio. And we're coming to you live from the Rocket Mortgage studios. Whether you're looking to purchase a new home or refinance yours, Rocket Mortgage can help you get there for home loan solutions that fit your life. Rocket can. I'm hanging out here with you and super producer and host, Dave Shepherd, and it's been a busy night.

I get started every night, 10 p.m. Eastern Time, 7 p.m. Pacific. We talked about Cliff Kingsbury and Josh McDaniels and Nathaniel Hackett and other terrible NFL coaches who might be on the hot seat. We talked about Ben Simmons and his return to Philadelphia.

He scores 11 points, has 11 rebounds, and the Brooklyn Nets lose, even though none of the Sixers stars played. We talked about the NFL owners and the fact that they might be colluding against the players to keep them from getting their hands on any more guaranteed contracts. Deshaun Watson with the largest guaranteed contract ever, a ridiculous five-year $230 million by a Cleveland Browns team, that was desperate to get him into the building. And NFL owners, other NFL owners are like, listen, man, we're not in the business of starting to hand out deals like that. The Browns are some suckers handing this money over to this guy.

Let's all make a pact not to do it again. Meanwhile, you have someone like Lamar Jackson who says, wait a minute, I deserve guaranteed money. Why can't I get 230 guaranteed? And I think we all know the answer as to why the NFL doesn't hand out guaranteed contracts, why the sticking point typically is, you know, guaranteed money up front with a signing bonus. And I wouldn't be, I wouldn't be upset with an adjustment. If you're an NFL owner, I mean, this is a dangerous, violent sport. Why do I want to pay my talent that much money? If there's a high probability of them not earning it due to injury. And if you're a player on the reverse, I understand wanting that guaranteed money because who doesn't want to get paid? 855-212-4CBS.

That's 855-212-4CBS earlier on in the show. We also had an opportunity to talk about the World Cup. We talked about Argentina blowing it against Saudi Arabia. For whatever reason, Messi and Argentina in the national stage, they always fall apart. And then we talked about Ronaldo. He didn't want to be a part of Manchester United anymore. They didn't want him. And so they have mutually agreed to go their separate ways.

Sounds like a marriage. Anyway, 855-212-4CBS. I'm going to get more of your calls in. I do want to talk to you about Garrett Cole being, I guess, the biggest cheater in baseball.

And then talk about the Final Four. It's heading to Vegas since we want to talk about money. Larry is calling from Ohio. You're on CBS Sports Radio. What's up, Larry? Hey, how's it going, JR? First of all, man, happy Thanksgiving to you and everybody at CBS Radio.

Thank you. The clean situation, JR, and I was shocked we got to shine. I really was. I remember it was breaking news during the week because, basically, they turned us down.

They were like, I think it was the Saints, us, and Miami, and the Falcons. I thought it was going down to Atlanta. That's because it's hometown.

That's my area. And then we talked about it. But when it broke, we were shocked and said, oh my, it's great to have him. But then we found out.

The reason why it came was it guaranteed money. And what happened was, basically, the situation was, when it turns down that Baker Mays came around and said, hey, wait a minute. We went out and got him. I basically, I ain't playing for the Browns.

I want to trade him. So what, it basically stuck to Mr. Haslam because we didn't have a quarterback to tie him to make a pitch for a guaranteed money for Deshaun, which he is a better talent to, JR, than Baker, no question about it. Because with the numbers he put up down in Texas, I think he didn't have Will Fuller, DeAndre Hopkins. They trade him, which is pretty stupid.

And the numbers he put up, it was phenomenal. But that's basically what happened. Yeah, no, we know the circumstances of how and why Deshaun Watson ended up with the Browns. But the fact is, based on not his, his football record, based on everything that he has done to be missing for the past year and a half, the fact that he is the first guy to receive such a massive, fully guaranteed deal is, is a sticking point for, for other talents. Oh yeah, they, oh yeah, the owners of Tisch, JR.

They are. That's why the, that's why the NFL Players Association is, is basically filing a grievance saying, wait, the Browns paid this money to him. The other owners are looking at everybody else in the room saying, hey, we need to try to like stop this and nip it in the bud right away.

Nobody hand out another one of these deals. And so that is, that is certainly something that the Players Association is, is looking into and we'll see if it holds any type of water or weight. Sean is calling from Oregon.

You're on CBS Sports Radio. Hey JR, I hope they start paying them. Yeah, I, I see these guys walking around crippled up, rest of their lives for, for football and, and giving us the highest foreign entertainment there is on the planet. And I think that it's only right that these guys have some sort of, the NFL Association finally starting to stick up for these guys because there's a lot of them through the history of football that hadn't been treated real good. The NFL owners don't treat the players good and they're going to get out of paying them as long as they can. And it ain't right. There's a lot of corruption in football.

I think there's a lot of racism and I hope they I hope they fix it. Yeah. Well, well, damn Sean, thank you for calling from Oregon.

He's like, let me hit you with the pipes and then tell you happy Thanksgiving. We know that. I mean, what, what league historically has wanted to pay any of their players? We can look across the board at any and all of these professional sports and, and free agency just across the board. If you want to look at every sport, it's pretty much no older than about 35, 40 years old teams had the fight for that, or excuse me, players had the fight for that just to run around and not, not feel that they just belong to a team and that the team held on to them in perpetuity.

And there have been adjustments. If you want to think about retirement and what players get, yeah, the NFL has, has so many different ways where they try to now pay the players, where they try to get them a pension, given service time in the NFL, I believe it might be three years. It's, it's tough, but fully guaranteed deals. We might see it.

One of our callers mentioned it. We might see it on a smaller scale, but even if you do that, you start to set a precedent because what's a smaller scale, a fully guaranteed contract for a cornerback, for a linebacker. What about the most important player on the team? There's a reason why someone like Deshaun Watson got a $230 million guaranteed deal. And there's a reason why someone like Kirk Cousins, who basically is contract extension in his way, pardon the English, into guaranteed deals. And he's getting the money because they're QBs. And so if the smallest guy on the team is getting it, how's the dude who's most important not?

And if the guy who's most important is getting it, how is there not a trickle down? This is something that's going to have to be addressed as we just continue to move on into the future. And unfortunately, I don't think filing a grievance right now is going to make a difference. It's going to kind of set, set up not a benchmark, but it's going to be a sticking point for the next negotiations of which we have to wait a few years for. And don't bet on it. If you want to pay attention, look and see what takes place with Lamar Jackson, because he's the guy that pretty much helps set up this current grievance. Because if Deshaun Watson can get a fully guaranteed deal, Lamar Jackson is like, why can't I have one? Steve Basciotti, he had no problem, the owner of the Ravens, saying what the Browns did was absolutely ridiculous.

I don't know if he should have said that in public. I might come back to bite him. 8-5-5-2-1-2 for CBS. That's 8-5-5-2-1-2 for CBS. Speaking of money, it was also revealed today, a couple of things on the college athletic side. Let me get the college football playoff out the way first.

And then I want to tell you about the final four. The college football playoff has basically stayed the same here in the top four. Georgia number one, Ohio state number two, Michigan at number three, TCU at number four, and TCU is barely at number four after they barely beat Baylor. It took them about 17 seconds to try and get a field goal off and they maintain at number four.

Obviously Saturday right after Thanksgiving, Ohio state and Michigan are going to go at it. They could easily flip-flop here between the second and third spots depending on how close that game is. And then also LSU still on the outside looking in except for they move up to the fifth overall spot. Everybody in the top four is undefeated at 11-0. LSU at 9-2 has Texas A&M next.

They just beat University of Alabama Birmingham where I was visiting last week. And LSU, they're right there along with USC at number five and six. USC is going to take on Notre Dame right after the holiday. And so let's see if the college football playoff rankings change.

I can't see it changing. TCU is going to take on Iowa State. TCU and LSU I believe are really the only realistic options unless USC just absolutely embarrasses Notre Dame. I think that's their only way into the college football playoff at this time.

Now as we move along, I've mentioned this quite a few times throughout the course of the show. The Final Four. Yes, the men's basketball Final Four which takes place every year at a football stadium. They cram four teams from four universities into two days of basketball. You have Saturday, Final Four. You have Monday, the championship.

It ain't nothing but a big party. Some of my favorite memories covering sports have been at Final Fours. Whether I'm in Houston, whether I'm in Dallas, it's in New Orleans, it's always a fun time. And so this upcoming season, knowing that the basketball season just started, the Final Four is going to take place in Houston of which I remember very fondly in the year 2011. After that, 2024 is at Phoenix State Farm Stadium, Arizona State University. After that, we move to San Antonio in the Alamo Dome. Then we move to Indianapolis, Lucas Oil Stadium. In 2027, the Final Four will be at Ford Field in Detroit. And in 2028, the Final Four is going to take place in Las Vegas, the brand new Allegiant Stadium which is absolutely beautiful. Allegiant Stadium is one of the best football stadiums. It's one of the best stadiums in the country.

It sucks that the Raiders are the ones who play there but you get my drift. And so for years, the NCAA has said no thank you to Vegas as a host. Obviously, you have UNLV there.

You're not the only school. This upcoming season, we have some regional matchups that are going to take place. But to actually hold the Final Four at or in Las Vegas has been frowned upon. Now that Allegiant Stadium is there, now that it's new and now that gambling has become so much more widely just participated in across the country, it's alright.

It's okay. It shouldn't have been a problem in the first place. The athletes are also allowed to make money at this point. And so there's no big deal here.

The problem with the NCAA is for years, they basically tried to make all this money up front for themselves while the players and the coaches had to do backroom deals under the table. That's what was wrong. Ain't nothing wrong with Las Vegas. People can go ahead and find trouble anywhere. You can find trouble in Miami, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Georgia, Atlanta.

You can find trouble wherever the hell you want it. Just because Vegas is a playground, these players are not going to be swayed by playing in Vegas. These players won't even have a chance or an opportunity to be influenced by anybody because every single one of their movements for the most part are kept under lock and key. Players won't even have a chance to get into a casino. And so Vegas or the NCAA has not a damn thing to worry about.

The final four in Las Vegas in 2028, six years from now, almost five. No big deal. Not a lot to do about anything. Much to do about nothing. The world will continue to go on. Let me tell you something. Vegas is not going to stop anybody from doing anything illegal.

You could do illegal things wherever the hell you're at, not just because something is taking place in Vegas. So in 2028, if I feel like it, if I'm still talking about sports, there's a good chance that I'll be out there at that final four. It's the JR Sport Reshow here on CBS Sports Radio, 855-212-4CBS.

That's 855-212-4CBS. We're going to take a break. And when we come back, I'm going to take your calls on guaranteed contracts. I'm going to take your calls on the final four being in Vegas.

And then I also want to let you know about someone who, I guess he did cheat. His name is Garrett Cole of the New York Yankees, and he's getting called out about it. It's the JR Sport Reshow on CBS Sports Radio.

Don't move. You're listening to the JR Sport Brief on CBS Sports Radio. You're listening to the JR Sport Brief on CBS Sports Radio. I even got my wife into listening to you, man. You know, like when I come home at night, she already have you on like walking the house. I'm getting out the car and you know, and then I'm walking in the house and I'm still hearing you, man.

Call in now at 855-212-4CBS. Oh yeah. I love the families.

Family, you got to look out for each other, right? Yeah, JR Sport Brief Show's for everybody. Setting the radio up. Oh, I love it. I love it.

Sounds like an excellent relationship. 855-212-4CBS, before I pick the phone lines back up, I need to let you know about the Defensive Player of the Week. It's sponsored by the Navy Federal Credit Union, who proudly serves the armed forces DOD, veterans and their families. Their members are the mission.

You can learn more at And today it's not just a player of the week. I'm going to just give you a whole damn team. It's the Dallas Cowboys holding the Minnesota Vikings to only three points in Minnesota as Dallas won this week 40 to 3.

I'll say it again, in Minnesota. They held Kirk Cousins to a little more than only 100 yards passing. Kirk Cousins was also sacked seven times. Armstrong hit him twice. Parsons hit him twice.

Curse hit him once. And even Dante Fowler Jr. got in on the action. Dallas Cowboys, defense, absolutely killing it this season in the NFL. They are your Defensive Team of the Week, sponsored by the Navy Federal Credit Union. 855-212-4CBS, I'm going to get some of your calls on the board. And then I want to talk to you about that cheater, Garrett Cole. Clinton is calling from Michigan.

You're on CBS Sports Radio. Hey, Jay. How are you doing tonight? Amazing, man. What's up?

Well, a couple of questions for you. And then I'm also getting ready to start my unified basketball season. Anyway, can the Lions knock out the Bills by simply running the football and playing a solid defense? And can Michigan upset Ohio State on Saturday with the passing game the way it is? So I don't foresee, well, yes, Michigan can, but I'll still take Ohio State. I'm going to say yes, Michigan can, but I'll still take Ohio State.

So that's the last question that you just asked me. And the first question you asked me was about Buffalo. Do I think the Lions can beat Buffalo? Yes.

With the solid defense that we have in the running game, the Lions have. Can we beat Buffalo at fourth field, I think, for what seems like the first time in a long time? Yes. The answer is yes, but I'll still take Buffalo to win on Thanksgiving. Yes. Sorry.

Oh, that's fine. Hey, I'm good with a close game, though. And I am looking forward to our unified season starting on December 3rd. Congratulations.

What unified basketball? Yes, sir. I love it, man.

You guys got to send me some pictures and then send me an invite, okay? Oh, I definitely will. And what's even cool is that our entire national team that we went down to Orlando with, we all came back to make another run. I love it, Clinton. I love it. Well, I know it's getting cold in Michigan. Well, not getting.

It's already cold. But if you guys send me an invite, I'd love to make it out, okay? Oh, I definitely will.

I will definitely do that, JR. Okay. How do I go about sending you a... Can I send you a schedule through Facebook?

Well, Facebook is tough because I get so many requests. I'm going to give you my email. It's very simple. You ready? Hang on, JR. Give me two seconds here, bud.

You're going to get all the seconds in the world, Clinton. Okay. What is your email, bud?

Very simple. That's one S, okay? Jrsportbriefatgmail. I appreciate it.

Look for that email. And it's going to come from my initials. Okay. I'll stay tuned, Clinton, okay? All right, buddy. Have a great night.

Thank you so much. Shout-outs to Clinton for calling from Michigan. For anyone who's not familiar with Unified Sports, what Clinton just referred to was a program that is just pretty much shared by Special Olympics. Unified Sports allows people with and without intellectual disabilities to participate in sports at the same time. And so when we say Unified Sports, we're talking about Unified Basketball. It could be a kickball game. Could be baseball. And it just allows everybody to play sports at the same time.

And it's an absolutely amazing concept. So if you want to learn more about Unified Sports, it's very simple. You can go to It's really a fun time. Just allows everybody to get in on the action and have fun regardless of your level of play.

I've always enjoyed it. Steve is calling from Virginia. You're on CBS Sports Radio. Hey, Jay. Thanks for taking my call, man. How's it going? Sure, man. What's up? Hey, man. We just want to give some love, man, to the Washington Wizards, man.

You know what I mean? I think they exceeded a little bit of expectations. I know we still got a long way to go. But I think, you know, time to give Bernie Bickerstaff a little, you know, credit for how he's been coaching his team.

And I also think Tommy Shepherd, man. I thought they jumped the gun, giving him that extension last year. Thought it was a little too early for that. But looking like some of these moves he's been making is starting to pan out, man. Virginia is staying healthy. And, you know, Kuzma was a good move, you know? OK. All right.

Listen. Yeah, they're OK right now, but let's be real. Are you excited about the Wizards? Excited?

No. OK. All right. I would use the word surprise because usually at this point in the year, they start going south. So, you know, like I said, it's still early. But if Bill, the key is Bill, man. Bill, he's got to stay on the court. You know, he's getting a little banged up here and there. But if he could just stay on the court, man, they got a good chance to make, you know, the playoffs. Are they winning anything? Significant? No.

But they can at least be respectful, you know what I mean? Well, Steve, when you say poor Zingis and healthy, in my brain I just can't help but chuckle because it's it's like only a matter of time before he misses. He misses time, you know, but kudos to them right now.

But let's see how long it lasts. Yeah, it's sad, man, because that dude got a lot of talent, man. I mean, for his size, you know what I mean?

You know, he's got a unicorn, I guess. But, you know, the injuries have kind of set him back. But when you look at this kid, man, he can play, you know what I mean? Yeah. Well, the bigger but he can't move without getting hurt.

The bigger they are, the harder they fall and his ass is huge, okay? That's a good point, man. Hey, man, happy Thanksgiving to you, bro. Enjoy the show, man. You as well, Steve. Have a good one. Thank you for calling from VA. Scott is calling from Springfield in Massachusetts, home of the Basketball Hall of Fame. What's up, Scott?

You're on CBS Sports Radio. Hey, happy Thanksgiving, guys. Thanks.

I got two things to touch up on. Okay. One is the guaranteed contracts. They should be outlawed until at least in their fifth year in the sport, especially in the NFL. Okay.

Why five years? This way here, they can prove themselves on the field. I don't think it's so much.

Most NFL players will find success in that early portion of their career. But go ahead. What's your second point? All right. And the second point is the Patriots.

Now, our local radio stations have been just tearing them apart after Sunday's game. Okay. The fact of the matter is the weather was horrible here. Okay. Well, keep going.

What's your point? It was very windy. Okay. The passing game was nonexistent, period.

It's not like the passing game has been all that hot in normal ass weather. I mean, what are we saying here? Well, the thing is, is that it would be... Uh-oh. It's okay. No, I'll come back to you. No, no, I'll come back to you, Scott. Organize your brain and I'll come back to you. I'm like, if it's windy, if it's warm, if it's hot, if it's 80 degrees, if it's 30 degrees, one of the New England Patriots post-Tom Brady had some type of explosive passing attack. Is that a trick question? No, it's when. Like even when Tom Brady was on the way out the door. I mean, come on.

We could have wind, we could have nothing. It's just Mac Jones ain't doing nothing. Does that make sense to you, Scott?

Yeah, it does a little bit. Yeah. Okay. Well, don't worry about the Patriots.

You still have Bill Belichick. He's always angry, so that's fun. That's true. All right. Enjoy that.

The press conference is always entertaining, Scott. Thank you, man. Thank you very much, Guy. No doubt about it.

Yeah, see, we got that in. It's the JR Sportbreeze Show on CBS Sports Radio 855-212-4CBS. I'm going to get some more of your calls before I roll out.

And then I want to tell you about a great cheater, Garrett Cole. You are listening to the JR Sportbreeze on CBS Sports Radio. You are listening to the JR Sportbreeze on CBS Sports Radio. All the differences of opinions, all the difference of backgrounds, and yet I believe all of us and all your listeners, yourself included, we can do this and always be friends. Call in now at 855-212-4CBS.

It's the JR Sportbreeze Show on CBS Sports Radio. I'm just taking your calls here before we roll out. And I'm going to talk to you about Garrett Cole.

I mean, this guy's in the off season just minding his business and he's catching straights for being a cheater. Tomorrow, as I do every single Wednesday night into Thursday morning, I'll be here tomorrow before the holiday. It'll be my last day until I return on Monday. And tomorrow night, I'm going to bring you a top six list. And we're going to think about, I'm going to give you my top six things that I'm thankful for this holiday season, because we're going to blink and then boom, Thanksgiving will be done. We will roll into Christmas and Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and New Year's, and then the NFL playoffs will be here.

And then I personally will try to understand how we are exactly in the year 2023. It'll be here very, very soon. 855-212-4CBS. Ron is calling from Maryland. You're on the JR Sport Brief Show. Hey, good morning, guys. I'm just at work.

Just got a quick break while I'm about to tie a ship up. I want to shine on their own guaranteed money for the players. I think they should get it. I think the owners, this is definitely collusion. These guys are out there busting their butts, busting their bodies. And the owners always get all the money and don't want to do that trickle-down economics and give it to the players because I don't think it's right.

I'm not a Ravens fan, but I hope the Ravens coach lock up Lamar Jackson. Let that linebacker Smith, let him go about 50 miles south a little bit down towards D.C. because he could use linebacker like that. Oh, another thing about Vegas. That's ridiculous about Vegas. Maryland's about to go online tomorrow, online gaming, another way for me to waste money and lose money.

But anything can happen anywhere. And every time we mention Vegas and stuff, I think about the run of Rebs and it just made me smile thinking about the run of Rebs. I don't know how old you are.

If you remember the run of Rebs in the early 90s, but that was just a fun team to watch. Yeah, I've never heard of Greg Anthony in my life. I don't know any of those guys.

Yeah, I know you have. I don't know your age. I don't know if you remember watching or not.

That's all. I don't remember what your age is. I was born yesterday, Ron. No, sir.

I know you're not. This is why I love your show, man. You're good, man. Have a good night, man. Happy Thanksgiving, man.

You as well. Thank you for calling from Maryland. Yeah, I've never heard of Greg Anthony.

I never saw him play live in my life. Who do we have here? Bill is calling from Cleveland. You're on CBS Sports Radio. Hi, Jay.

I want to try a first time. I think the guarantee contracts are a good idea. Let's compare Deshaun Watson and Patrick Mahomes. They're going to make similar money over the next five years, and at the end of those five years, the Chiefs are going to owe Mahomes another $145 million, and they kept the browser loan owed to Watson nothing.

OK, I don't know if that's the benchmark for the future, though. I mean, Patrick Mahomes is certainly a Hall of Fame talent. Yeah, he can go down and be broken, but the odds of him staying healthy are very high.

You look at Deshaun Watson, and it's just a cringey situation, speaking of a cringey situation for certainly very, very different reasons. Serge Ibaka. I haven't seen Serge in a few years. I used to talk to Serge quite frequently. Yes, that's pretty random, but Serge Ibaka has a show.

He has a podcast, and he is a very cultured man, and, you know, he spent some time in Toronto, and now he's a member of the Milwaukee Bucks, and he still maintains his show called How Hungry Are You, and he's had on some great talents, and we've gotten some funny moments. Well, he recently had Alec Manoa of the Toronto Blue Jays. Alec has been in the league for two years, is already one of the best pitchers in Major League Baseball. He is a gigantic human being for a pitcher at about 6'6". He's pushing, I think, I don't know, 260, 280. He's a gigantic man, and he was a guest with Serge Ibaka, and for whatever reason, Serge Ibaka asked him about baseball, and Alec Manoa, he decided to bring up Garrett Cole and his spin rate and his cheating and his spider tack, and this was recent.

Take a listen to this. Who is the worst cheater in the baseball story? Uh, uh, Garrett Cole. Garrett Cole, what did he do? Yeah, he cheated. He used a lot of, like, sticky stuff. Yeah?

To make his pitchers better. Wow. And he, uh, he kind of got called out, called out on it. Okay. So this one's for you.

This one's a big one. Damn. He's the, Garrett Cole is the biggest cheater in baseball history? Alec Manoa knows that's not the case.

He's just being a jerk. Garrett Cole, his spin rate certainly did go down following that 2019 season with Houston, where he had a ridiculous 326 strikeouts, but the biggest cheater ever? Garrett Cole, uh, I don't know about that now, but it was hilarious. Last year when baseball was starting to crack down on pitchers using quote unquote sticky stuff like spad, spider tack for their pitchers, I will never forget this.

Garrett Cole was asked about his usage and just listen to this answer. I don't know if, uh, I don't know quite, I don't quite know how to answer that to be honest. Um, I mean, there are customs and practices that have been passed down from older players to younger players, from the last generation of players to this generation of players.

And, um, you know, I, I think, uh, I think there are some things that are certainly out of bounds in that regard. And, and, uh, I stood pretty, stood pretty firm in terms of that, uh, in terms of the communication between our peers and whatnot. Um, you know, and, and I, again, like I mentioned earlier, there's, you know, this is important to a lot of people that love the game and this is including, including the players in this room, including fans, including, you know, teams. And so if MLB wants to legislate some more stuff, that's a conversation that we can have. Um, because ultimately we should all be pulling in the same direction with this. And that was a long ass answer just to say, people have been cheating forever. Give me a break. That was basically what the answer was. Hey, have you ever used spider tack to get a grip?

Well, I don't know how to answer that, but people have been passing stuff on down for generations. Look, if Alec Manoa wants to fight Garrett Cole, just do it on the mound. I see that they're renovating the Rogers center, just meet them on the mound and have a fight.

Biggest cheater ever. I don't know about all of that. Steve is calling from Houston. You're on CBS sports radio. Hey, JR. So when I grow up, I want to be just like you. You're the greatest.

You're the greatest. Well, I'll leave that to Muhammad Ali, but go on. This is a big what if. So we already know the rockets should get the number one pick, which is going to be one by us. And the Texans are going to get the best quarterback out there, in my opinion, two generational talents that you won't see anybody like these guys in a while. Right.

Now, with that said, how would you like a little scenario of worst to first? And I say this only because they all have multiple number first round draft picks. They've got several.

They can get a great receiver, maybe a Jamar Chase or a Jefferson type. They are appears. Steve. Yeah. You called to tell me that the Houston sections are bad and that the rockets are bad and that it would be cool if they both end up with the number one overall picks.

Yeah, that'd be great. So call me call me back in April and June. Yeah, no, I believe this. I believe this.

Well, yeah, I believe it, too. It's with all these picks they got. They could get a great receiver.

They already have yours. Well, Steve, they have a good secondary. Yeah, well, Steve. Well, listen, Steve, it's not going to be from worst to first. It's going to take some time.

But call me back. We have months, at least for the Texans. They'll be done in a month. And for the Houston Rockets, we have to wait until the spring. But the draft is June. So when the draft takes place for both of these teams, call me back. OK, let's get one by one by.

OK, thank you. One Benyama. Thank you, Steve, for calling from Houston. Real excited about his losers. Shaq is calling from Georgia. You're CBS Sports Radio. Thank you. How are you? I'm amazing.

What's up? Oh, good. I always listen to you. Keep up the good work.

I was just sort of saying this about a few months ago. Kelly was in town from New York, the boxer. I do the Muslim service. I happen to drive him. He got into the car. I was listening to you. And then he said, man, that's my do a job.

So when I dropped him off, he said, you know what? I'm calling right now. He will give you a shot on the radio. So within five minutes or so, I heard you giving me a shot. So I want your listeners to know how I appreciate that and how genuine of a human being you are. So thank you so much. I want everybody to know how real you are. Well, thank you, man.

I try to act like a decent human being on the radio, but I'm actually a trash person when I turn the mic off. Who said that? You said Eric, Eric Kelly? Eric Kelly, yeah, the boxer.

Oh, yes. Eric Kelly is a very good friend of mine. I encourage anyone in New York City to check out Eric Kelly's boxing gym, South Box gym in the Bronx, New York.

Eric Kelly was a former Olympic level boxer until he decided to, you know, get into a fight somewhere. He had no business and he's still an amazing guy. So thank you, Shaq. Oh, no problem. No problem.

Yeah, thank you so much. No problem, brother. You be well. No problem. Thank you. You too. Thank you.

Now, the cat is out the bag, man. All these people call up saying all these nice things about me. Makes me sick.

It's terrible. I need somebody to say something terrible to me. Let me talk to Paul from, where is he, from Rhode Island.

Hey, Paul, you're on CBS Sports Radio. JR, Commander JR, thank you for taking my call. Have a nice Thanksgiving. You and your family and Sheppy, too.

Embrace your family. All right. We were talking about the contracts. There was a time that quarterbacks waited three years, Young for Montana, Rogers for Favre. Okay.

They don't like when these young bucks come in. Oh, boy. Yeah.

And you know who loves it? The owners. Yeah. If these young bucks go to a high market team, the owners love it. They don't have to pay them for two or three years.

Okay. But what happened this year with all these big contracts is they take up all the purse and now they have no money to distribute around the whole team. Now, some of these guys, they won't play with a toothache and they're sitting with a big purse on the sideline.

Oh, that's not true, Paul. And I gotta get ready to go, man. NFL players, man. They go out there and bust ass. It's not the NBA. Let's stop it.

Give those guys a break. Hey, Shep, thank you for an amazing night, man. My pleasure, JR. And to echo our audience's thoughts and sentiments, you have a wonderful Thanksgiving, my friend. You are so deserving of that and can't wait to hear your show tomorrow. You as well, man. Have a good one.

Enjoy. You're gonna be on air tomorrow night, right? Yes, sir. I'll be hosting After Hours, Amy Lawrence on Thursday. Always blessed to do that. But we'll miss working with you as always, my friend. You know that.

You're gonna be on After My Show. Yes, sir. Amazing. That's good. Air time is good. Listen, folks, the JR Sport Reshow here on CBS Sports Radio.

It is a wrap. I'll be back tomorrow, 10 p.m. Eastern, 7 Pacific. And Shep, you'll be on tomorrow night after me. Yes, sir.

And the night after and the night after, yes. Where can people follow you? At the good shepherd underscore JR. The JR Sport Reshow here on CBS Sports Radio. It's a wrap. I'll be back tomorrow, 10 Eastern, 7 Pacific. Thank you, Shep.
