Which athletes need to shut up? l Brock Purdy & Tua Tagovailoa named starting Pro Bowl QBs l Calls on the NFL


What's that sound? That's the sound of Downy Unstoppable's scent beads going into your washing machine and giving your clothes freshness that lasts all day long.

There it is again. It's like music to your ears. Or more like music to your nose. That freshness is irresistible. Let's get a Downy Unstoppable's bottle shake. And now a sniff solo. Nice.

Get six times longer lasting freshness plus odor protection with Downy Unstoppable's in-wash scent beads. It is the JR Sportbreeze show on CBS Sports Radio. Happy Wednesday. I'm coming to you live from Atlanta, Georgia. Wherever you're at, thank you for being locked in. I'm going to be hanging out with you for one more hour. Thank you to super producer and host Ryan Hickey.

He's holding it down for us in New York City. And you, wherever you're at, I hope you're safe. I hope you're well. I hope you're cool. I hope you are smooth. We've had a fun night. This is the second night in the new time slot. I'm having so much damn fun I can't contain myself.

When I get out of here, I'm going to go to the gym. I'm full of excitement. Anyway, 8-5-5-2-1 is the number.

That's 8-5-5-2-1-2-4 CBS. We have paid our bills. The phone lines work. We just spoke to a bunch of people in the last break and we've had a busy night. Of course, it's Wednesday. Every Wednesday night, it don't matter what the time slot is, I delivered and shared to you a new top six list. And tonight, we took a look at some athletes that I wish would shut that in 2024. I'll give you a recap of those six athletes momentarily and then I'm going to get back to the phone lines and get your thoughts. I want to thank Randy McMichael, former NFL tight end, 11 years in the league. He's a current host on 92-9 the game in Atlanta, Georgia.

Holds down mid-days with Andy Bunker. He came on through and we talked about some of the NFL games that matter this coming weekend because we know there's a bunch of dudes who will not be playing. We won't see Patrick Mahomes. Even though Joe Flacco has only played five games, we will not see him.

We won't see Lamar Jackson. But thank you so much to Randy for coming on as we talked about, I don't know. Well, I do know we talked about the Bills and the Dolphins. And so even last hour or before last hour, we talked about some of the blowouts in college athletics. I just gave you the top six list. And how about this news?

We're going to get into this this hour as well. The NFL Pro Bowl rosters have been announced. The 49ers have nine, count them, nine All-Star players that will be making the Pro Bowl. The Ravens, the Cowboys, they have seven apiece. And if you forgot this, we don't have no Pro Bowl game anymore. There's not a quote unquote full game slash scrimmage.

Them days are over. What do we have right now? We got flag football and then we also have, I don't know, mini games.

It's ridiculous. We're going to get into that as the rosters have been announced. I should let you know this. Demarcus Ware, Ray Lewis, they are some of your captains for the Pro Bowl.

And what does that mean? They get to stand on the sideline with microphones attached to their backs and we all get to watch them play flag football and do other ridiculous games. So next break, we're going to hear from Demarcus Ware. We're going to hear from Ray Lewis on the NFL Network as they discuss this oh so exciting Pro Bowl.

Yeah, I know all of these All-Star games are ridiculously exciting. 855-212-4CBS. That's 855-212-4CBS. Top six list? I take it everywhere. I've taken it from YouTube. I took it to TV.

I've now taken it to radio. And even in my old time slot, I gave you a top six. And for the top six list tonight, the first top six list for 2024, I gave you a list last hour of athletes that I wish would shut the hell up in 2024.

Here's a quick recap. At number six, I gave you Rory McIlroy. The man has now flip flopped on his approach to live golf. And number five, I gave you Trevor Bauer. Yeah, I don't care if he's innocent, guilty. He has come across as a complete jerk on social media. And now he's blogging his innocence as he tries to make a way back into Major League Baseball.

I don't think it will happen if you're still a jerk. And number four, I gave you Conor McGregor. Conor McGregor, one of the most famous quotes I've ever, well, not a quote, one of the most famous diatribes I've ever heard in my life in a UFC octagon. I've never heard a guy break his leg, sit on the floor and decide to curse out his opponent and insult him and his wife. If you need a reminder, Conor McGregor fought in 2021, broke his leg and then said this to Joe Rogan. Take a listen, courtesy of the UFC. The fight obviously stopped in a horrible way. Give us your thoughts on how it was going. It was boxing the bleeding head off and kicking the bleeding leg on.

You will show it to close the distance. This is not over. If we had to take this, I'm sorry for him.

It's all I'm sorry. We don't give a f***. He said that he believes that one of the kicks that he checked is what broke your leg. There was no check.

There was not one that had my check. Your wife is in me DMs, hey, baby. Hit me back on my jacket, let alone. We'll be out here at the party to win nightclub, baby.

You looking bitch, you little f***. F*** him. F*** him. Conor McGregor said he's going to be back this year in June. I wish he would go, just sell whiskey, man. And when he's not selling whiskey or cursing out guys and their wives, he's punching old men who don't want to taste his whiskey.

Come on. I wish he'd shut up. And number three, I gave you Dylan Brooks. This man called LeBron James old and LeBron James ate him up on the basketball court. And then Dylan Brooks didn't want to say anything. And then Memphis said, no, thank you.

The Houston Rockets gave him $80 million. And so far, for the most part up until now, Dylan Brooks has been quiet. Let's see what happens. And this sounds crazy to say, let's see what happens if the Rockets make the playoffs. Maybe Dylan will get to talking again.

Speaking of another guy I wish would shut up. And number two, I gave you Draymond Green. We know he's currently serving in indefinite suspension for stepping on chests and punching people and kicking people and stomping on people. It's just too much with Draymond. And it's now been 10 games. He's going to miss more than 10 games. And maybe he has learned his lesson.

Probably not. And then number one I gave you on the list is Aaron Rodgers. I mean, he's now currently in a battle with with Jimmy Kimmel over whether or not Jimmy Kimmel is going to be on a dead sex offender.

Anyway, it's just it's nuts. This is what the quarterback for the New York Jets is doing now that he can't rehab. He rehabs. He pops up on Pat McAfee. He takes a million dollars and he just kind of needles everybody about nonsense. Nothing better to do. I guess this is what happens when you run the New York Jets or at least you have the New York Jets by the you know what.

And you can do whatever the hell you want. So if you want the full explanation, if you want the full audio, you can always hit rewind on the free Odyssey app. Thank you to everybody listening on our many CBS Sports Radio affiliates, Sirius XM 158 and everybody tuned in on a smart speaker. Well, all you have to do is ask it to play CBS Sports Radio.

The phone lines are open. That's eight five five two one two four CBS. That's eight five five two one two four CBS. When I say athlete. That you wish was shut up in twenty twenty four. Who the hell would it be? Let's go ahead and talk to Nate from Buffalo.

You want CBS Sports Radio, the J.R. sport ratio. Go ahead, Nate. Hey there. How's it going? I just want to wish you a happy new year and commend you for the work that you've been doing lately. I've listened to a couple of shows.

It's been great before I got into my little piece here. So immediately a name came to mind and his name is Jonathan Owen. He's a he plays for the Packers. He's the husband of Simone Biles. Now, I don't know if you saw this, but lately on a podcast, he went on there and he talked about how he had no idea who she was. And basically trying to, you know, go on there and spew nonsense about how he's the catch, which, man, he's not.

I'm sorry. You know, I commend him for for trying, but it was actually it came out that in twenty twelve, he was live to in the Olympics. And he was that he actually tweeted about Gabby's gymnastics in twenty twelve. But she wasn't in the gymnastics Olympics in twenty twelve.

It didn't start until twenty sixteen. But it shows that he he knows he obviously has watched it before. He knows who she was, bro. You know that. Yeah. So you wish Jonathan Owens would shut up because he's telling lies about Simone.

Do you think he appreciates being with Simone Biles? You know what, man? After hearing that, I think you might take it for granted a little bit. Maybe it's a little bit jealousy.

I don't know exactly what it is, but it ain't cool, man. Yeah, I hear you. Well, Nate, thank you so much.

All the best to you. Coming out of Buffalo, one of my favorite places in western New York. I like cold. I like food.

You know, I'll go anywhere where there's good food. And I did hear what he he talked about or referred to when it came down to Simone Biles. We know Simone Biles, one of the most accomplished gymnasts, period, of all time. And by the way, when we get closer to the Olympics, we're going to have Dominique Dawes. She's going to come through and join us here on CBS Sports Radio. But yes, Simone Biles sat there and Jonathan Owens was just like, oh, yeah, well, no, I didn't pursue Simone. She came after me. I'm the catch. It's like, what? Like America knows Simone Biles.

America don't know you. I mean, a couple of seasons ago, you were barely in the NFL and you sitting around saying you're the catch. If Simone Biles said bye to you tomorrow, anything that you did or built off of, you'd probably be off the back of Simone Biles. You know what? Ain't nothing wrong with that. Simone Biles isn't. Let me relax.

If I was with Simone Biles, I wouldn't be sitting around telling everybody that I'm the catch, man. Anyway, let's move away from there before I get in trouble. 855-212-4CBS. That's 855-212-4CBS. It's a new year. What athlete do you wish would shut up in 2024? Chris is calling from California. You're on CBS Sports Radio. What's up, Chris? Hey, Jay.

How you doing? Happy New Year, Jay. To you as well.

Yeah, I like talking to you, Tony. Anyway, you missed, as always, it's spot on. I know how you come up with this stuff. I'm just watching you now follow a little harder.

That's what I'm saying. You know, we've got things to put in mind today if you ask me, but, you know, what I did. Anyway, the Jaymont Green situation. You guys are the biggest team team of all time. But, you know, today's game, you know, you look at the state over the last 10 years, they've got four wins. And I could not stand this guy, especially in 2016, when all this power from all over the world, from all around the world, finally stayed here. Yeah, he brought his first championship in 51 years in the entire city, of course.

You know, Jaymont Green was an idiot. We did the whole package. Thank you, Chris. Appreciate you, man.

All right, no doubt. I don't know. What the hell?

I felt like I was talking. What's that guy's name? Hey, Ryan, you ever sat down and watched King of the Hill on Fox? Does that even still come on? It's over, right?

I think, yeah, even the reruns are over, I think. Oh, damn. That guy, what's that dude, that fast-talking guy, what is it, Boomhauer, Boomhauser? Sounds about right.

I can look it up here to confirm. That guy, he just thought, you know, that's what he sounded like. I feel like his phone got intercepted by aliens. All I understood that he said was Draymond Green, and he said he does not like Draymond. Outside of that, I have no idea, none, what that man said. Absolutely.

None whatsoever. 855-212-4CBS. It's 855-212-4CBS. Let's go ahead and talk to Donald. Donald is calling from Alabama.

You're on CBS Sports Radio, the JR Sport Breeze Show. What's up, Donald? Hey, JR. Hey, man, getting used to your new time slot, man. Congratulations on the upgrade.

I'm hoping that's an upgrade for you, but it's well-deserved. You do a great job up there. Well, thank you, Donald. What's up? Well, I'm a Packer fan, and I listen to your talk about Aaron Rodgers, and all I've got to say is you keep on talking about him, man, because the Jets are putting up with what we had to put up with for the last five years with him running his big mouth. The Jets wanted him. They got him.

All I got to say is have at it, boys. They can go into the offseason dealing with all his drama, and good Lord willing, if the creek don't rise, hopefully after Sunday we'll be playing in the playoffs next week. So it's kind of a – it's just the Packer – I mean, I can't speak for all Packer fans, obviously, but I've got to believe we are sitting back just smiling after all this stuff with him and Jimmy Kimmel. Oh, man. I mean, what are the odds – and I've said this for the better part of two years right now – if you're a Green Bay Packers fan – or forget being a fan, just the Green Bay Packers in general – to have 20-plus years of Brett Favre, and then you roll – not seamlessly, obviously – but then you roll into having Aaron Rodgers, and now you finally let Jordan Love go out there and play, and the man throws 30 touchdowns and is on the precipice of the postseason, you just got to go, damn, is this too good to be true?

Like, you got to be – like you said, you love this. Oh, yeah, because, I mean, obviously we didn't know what we had at the beginning of the season, and, you know, when you play 17 – 16, 17 games, there's a lot of ups and downs, but, you know, the only thing we got a gripe about is our defense, and hopefully we'll take care of that once the season's over, but, you know, with Joe Berry. But, you know, the thing about it is the future is bright for the Packers, and, I mean, this could not have gone any better than it has, and to be able to be in the same position we were in at this time last year – now, granted, Rodgers was a quarterback and he was crying when he left Lambeau, but we don't have to deal with Reggie Cobb or Lazard or any of those people.

Yeah. And – but the thing about it is we're excited about the future. You know, I don't know about the contract situation, Gudekan's to take care of all that, but, you know, we got us a quarterback potentially for the future and for the next five to ten years or maybe longer, and we'll see what happens. Well, we got to surround Jordan with more weapons and everything, and we've been doing good on the defensive side, but we got to do something about the offensive line a little bit because of Bakhtiari being out for the season. They got to decide on what to do with him, and – Well, damn it, I feel like David Bakhtiari is always out, so that ain't nothing new there.

No, they're going to, but what I think they need to do is release him and because, I mean, he's been – and it's not his fault because of the injuries, but, you know, he's been a non-factor for the last two years, and I think, you know, maybe a new surrounding will help him out, and, you know, sometimes that's good and sometimes it's bad for people, but it's like in the NFL. I'll tell you this, Donald, good on you. I think the Packers are going to walk away with a victory on Sunday, and I think everybody in Green Bay is going to be celebrating because Aaron Rodgers is sitting around beefing with Jimmy Kimmel and Jordan Love.

Most of America has no idea what this guy sounds like. Thank you so much, Donald, for calling from Alabama. 855-212-4CBS, that's 855-212-4CBS. Man, the Packers are living a life. Come on now. Matter of fact, let's go to Wisconsin right now and talk to Marshall.

Marshall, you're on CBS Sports Radio. What's up? Well, good evening, JR. Congrats on your new time slot. Happy New Year, too.

Hope you had a great holiday season, and it's tremendous. Donald stole a little of my thunder, and I'll just say something about Alabama. Condolences down there to what happened to them in the playoff, and you've given a star to Scott Hunter, Lacey, a whole lot of good football players from down there going back to the Lombardi years. So we thank Alabama just for that honor as well, and maybe we'll get some in this draft from down there.

Who knows? But I agree with you, JR. I think we're going to win. I think we're going to pull it out. It's going to be a close game, though, because the Bears are playing better. Fields is playing better, but I think the Packers in Lambeau, I like their chances, and it has been tremendous being this close, how well we've done, because we didn't know what we had. You know me as a North Carolina alum, I was hoping for Sam Howell or maybe even be in it for Drake May if Jordan didn't work out, but I had been telling people all along, I'm glad Jordan Love worked out.

I wanted it for the Packers, and I'll be cheering for Drake somewhere else. So that's to be determined, but I'm thrilled about everything, and I just want to say a couple other things, JR. Whoa, whoa, whoa. Yeah, go ahead. Go ahead. I said a couple of things. Marcia, the line's a pack. Go ahead, quick. Yes. Thank you for recognizing Coco Goff in your top six.

From last year? I won't comment on the other thing, and prayers to Chrissy Everett right now. She's my favorite, one of my favorite athletes of all time.

Pray that she beats cancer a third time, JR. 23 was a tough year, and we lost so many people and saw some get sick, but looking forward to 24. It's going to be a great 24, and go Heels and go Packers in my world. All right.

Well, thank you, Marcia. We'll find out about the Heels soon enough, and we'll find out about the Packers even sooner than that. It's the JR sport reshow here with you on CBS Sports Radio 855-2124 CBS. That's 855-2124 CBS. I'm going to get some more of your calls. I told you on the other side of the break we got the announcements for this year's Pro Bowl. Yeah, you got to wait about a month before we see a bunch of NFL players running around playing flag football.

I'm going to get some more of your calls. We'll talk about the Pro Bowl. We'll hear from the captains. They were just on the NFL network. DeMarcus Ware just spoke. Ray Lewis just spoke. It'd be interesting if they actually got on the field and did some work, but they will only be coaching as captains. We'll talk about it.

We'll hear from them. It's the JR sport reshow on CBS Sports Radio. You're listening to the JR sport brief on CBS Sports Radio.

It's the JR sport reshow here on CBS Sports Radio. Man, when I hear this, it makes me want to put on some pants and well, I'm wearing pants right now, so don't get any ideas. I don't know. I'll put on some acid wash jeans and it's going to sway my head and snap my fingers at the club on my motorcycle or my moped. Anyway, it's 2024.

This ain't the 80s. Anyway, 855-212-4CBS. That's 855-212-4CBS. I need to let you know about this. Listen very carefully. Think O'Reilly Auto Parts for all of your car care needs.

Get guaranteed low prices and excellent customer service from the professional parts people at O'Reilly Auto Parts. You're listening to the JR sport reshow here with you on CBS Sports Radio. I told you I'm going to get to the phone calls. Don't worry about it.

855-212-4CBS. You got people want to talk about football. We got people want to tell me about athletes that they wish would shut up in 2024. And then I told you that the Pro Bowl was announced.

Yes, the Pro Bowl. That is no longer a game. The NFL got rid of the regular quote unquote game in 2024.

Excuse me, 2022. I don't know if I should call it a game. It's just just a glorified scrimmage. If you ask me, the players stopped competing some time ago. And so last year we had many games. We had one day that was games, many games, guys running races. Who's the fastest?

Who's the strongest? And then we had a flag football game. Well, on Thursday, February 1st, we'll have those skill competitions and then we'll have the flag football game on Sunday, February 4th.

The Pro Bowl is going to take place in Orlando, Florida. And about an hour ago, the starters were announced. The 49ers have eight starters in this game, including nine total players. The 49ers lead the way.

No big shock, no big surprise. They are. It looks like probably the team best served to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl so far. And then also the Ravens. They have seven pro bowlers. The Dallas Cowboys have seven. The Dolphins and Eagles each have six. And the captains leading the way and representing each conference is a Hall of Famers. These are guys who used to bust ass. I love to see them go out there right now.

How about this? It's Demarcus Ware representing the NFC and then we have Ray Lewis representing the AFC. And as a part of that, Demarcus Ware, he's going to be coaching Brock Purdy, who was voted by the fans to be a starter. Let's listen to the announcement and let's listen to Demarcus Ware represent the NFC. This is all courtesy of the NFL Network.

Let's listen. Brock Purdy, starter, NFC first Pro Bowl selection. Purdy takes a shot down the sideline to George Kittle, Kittle all the way to the end zone. What a play by Purdy. You know, last year was Mr.

Irrelevant. And now he's one of the best quarterbacks in the league with talking about Brock Purdy. So I just think that now he's finally come into his own.

I mean, he has a whole supporting cast there in the sky's the limit for me. And so Brock Purdy and then also Tua Tonga Veloa, they were designated the starting quarterbacks for their respective conferences. This is the first time since the year 2000 in that Pro Bowl when they actually still played. You had Peyton Manning and Kurt Warner, that two first time Pro Bowl quarterbacks were named starters. Now, I'm sure the players all thrilled to be named Pro Bowlers. But let's be real. These guys don't care about participating to go to Orlando.

Maybe they can get a vacation out of it for their families. But it's a it's a big and I shrug your shoulders. This is the other announcement for the AFC. This is Tua Tonga Veloa. And then, you know, this guy's voice. It's Ray Lewis.

Listen to this. Like, it's easy for them to just run and get out of the pocket. You kind of saw that right in the earlier part of their careers. But what they're doing, they have so many toys that I called on the other side.

They got people running for 240s, for 140s, whatever. And so they have so many dynamic pieces that they understand. My job is to get the ball in their hands.

And so I'm telling you, congratulations to Tua on what he's done. Lamar has just been freaking spectacular. Man, I ain't watching no Pro Bowl. I didn't watch the Pro Bowl last year. I ain't watching the Pro Bowl this year. Every clip, every piece of information, I will read it or I will see the highlights online on social media. I do not need to sit down on Thursday or Sunday and watch it. Maybe in the background while I'm, I don't know, eating or cleaning. I may be in the gym. I will not be watching no damn Pro Bowl.

I'm not apologizing to the NFL. Somebody going to watch it just won't be me. 855-212-4CBS. That's 855-212-4CBS. Who we have here? Tim from Alabama. You're on the JR Sport Brief Show. Go ahead, Tim.

Hey, what's going on, JR? I hope you and your family had a Merry Christmas. Happy New Year. Best of luck to you in 2044. For those of us that don't know anything about radio, can you explain to us what it means to move up in a time slide?

Is this like a job promotion or is this like, you know, it's just how things are done? And also, I'd like to get your prediction on the college football championship. Well, I'm going to give my, well, we talked about it last night and we're going to talk about it more throughout the week. You want my, who do I think is going to win?

Yeah. Well, I said last night right now I'm leaning towards Washington. I think that Michigan is going to have to send all them pass rushers out there and Michael Pennix Jr. to kind of stay in the game.

But I don't, it would have to be one of the teams. I don't think it's going to be a close game. Not that I think we're going to see some gigantic ass whoop and I don't think Michigan will let it be that way.

But I wouldn't be shocked if Washington was completely stopped for the most part. But I don't know if they're going to go out there and put up 40 and 45 points. So I'm going to give them the edge.

But I think it's going to be a close game. We're going to talk more about it as the week goes on to him. OK. OK. OK. Well, you're there. What about you?

What about the new transfer? Well, the news is almost certainly can. Here's the deal. I take prime time wherever, wherever the hell I end up at.

And so it was a great thing to be here talking to all these folks all over America between, you know, 10 Eastern and seven Pacific. But to be able to go ahead and reach a different audience, an earlier audience. Hey, this is the part that sucks. I can't be on the radio all the damn time. That's the part that's unfortunate.

And so you gain something, you lose something. There's people who can't listen to the show in their earliest slot. There's a lot of people who can listen at night. And that's why I tell everybody, hey, the show is available on the Odyssey app.

It's also available on demand if and whenever you want it. And you've got to make the most of everything. So I say one more time. It depends. You got one more thing and I got to roll. Go ahead.

That's it. I was in Vegas 20 years. I've been around the world three times. But here's your story about how you started out on YouTube and now you're on CBS on the radio. Man, that is an awesome story.

It goes to show you can do anything you want in America as long as you put your mind to it. Congratulations to you, Jay. Well, thank you, Tim. And I'm just getting started.

I got so much to do. All the best. And thank you for your service, Tim. Happy New Year to you, OK? Thank you very much, Jay. Have a good one, man. Thank you, Tim.

Yeah. This is a shout out to Tim. He's he's probably want to be the last person on the radio.

That's all. Happy New Year, too, because he served. Yeah, I can't be on the radio all the time. Hey, Ryan, are you familiar with the gentleman who called up and made it very clear that if I'm not here, the station loses customers. You ever hear that, Ryan? Oh, I heard you.

Tell it to the bosses, too. Oh, well, yes. One of one of my favorite clips of all time. We'll get it. Hey, Ron, I appreciate you. Hey, by the way, are you are you kidding me?

Is Marco Belletti sitting there with a news update? I told you weren't getting rid of me, man. You just only get me for one update instead of four. I thought I thought we were joking here. What are you doing here?

This is going to be every night now. So instead of four updates from me, you get only one at the end of the night. I thought I ran away from you. No, you tried. But, you know, I sneak in.

That's that's what I do. I did. I thought I got away from you. And here he is.

Marco Belletti. No, I'm like a plague. How are you doing so far this year? I feel like it's been so long. What's changed? Like, are you a different person? New Year, new you.

What's going on? I don't know. Fatter. Does that does that make you new? Does that make you better? Does that make you just another day?

So no, I don't think so. You're fat about what? Three pounds? Oh, who the hell knows? We don't keep track.

After a while, you just kind of move on with it. No, I gained weight over the holidays, Marco. I did. Yeah, but see, for you, that actually would mean something.

Does it? I don't know. I mean, at least you would know about it. I don't know. I mean, what you I feel like you hit a point. You don't really know anymore.

You just kind of roll on with the days. Just just there, right? Yeah. You know, that's that's how I live my life. I just I do. Oh, I'm awake. What do I do now?

OK, I guess the same thing. I feel like pinky in the brain. I wake up. I go, hey, I got to do the same thing I did every day. Just try to take over the world. That sounds like me, other than the fact that when I wake up, it's usually where am I? What time is it?

Where do I have to go? That's kind of how I wake up every day. It's great. I've had though. I got plenty of those days.

I try not to have them. OK, anyway. It's the J.R. sport. We show your CBS Sports Radio. Still good to be here with Marco Belletti. You are listening to the J.R. sport brief on CBS Sports Radio. It's the J.R. sport show here with you on CBS Sports Radio. It's about time.

Well, not not quite. I'm not here for too much longer. So we got a lot of people here who want to hop onto the phones.

So I want to get on as many people as possible. I still want to ask a super producer and host, Ryan Hickey, who we wish would shut up for the year 2024. And I'll be back with you tomorrow. Of course.

We got technology. You can you can go ahead and do it. OK, you can try. 855-212-4CBS. Iman, call her from Houston.

You're on CBS Sports Radio. Go ahead, Iman. J.R., what's going on, brother? Happy New Year.

So you as well. What's up? Man, I just want to talk to you about the Texans. We talked when before we played Atlanta, but we got a whole different team. DJ Strauss playing out of his mind, the whole entire team. Singletary Buffalo regrets letting him go. He's playing.

He took Damian Pierce's job. But I'm just excited. Your producer, whoever answered the phone was hating on the Texans because he's a Colts fan.

So I just told him I feel bad for him. I think if we contain Jonathan Taylor and watch out for Minshew, we'll be OK. But I'm just super excited about this team. And after we beat the Colts, I'd love to go into Buffalo. I'd love to go into Kansas City just for the experience.

There you go. I know we're not going to win a Super Bowl. But I'm very proud of this team. We got the best quarterback out of the draft. And I'm so happy and proud to be a Texas fan.

As you should be and as you deserve to be. I thought that this team was going to be ass this season. Do I think or did I think they were going to be one game, two games, three games, ass?

I don't know. I didn't expect them to be competing for a playoff spot. I sat here on the radio and said so.

So I was absolutely wrong. These are the type of things that you can't necessarily predict. And as we got the playoff playoff. Yeah. That you say that you said a little too good. Don't don't don't do that no more. OK, brother, you know, you're my brother from another mother.

Don't ever forget that. Well, thank you, Iman. Can you go send me some money? I need some. OK. Hey, what do you what do you got? PayPal, Dell, Venmo. I got I got all of it.

Just imagine what my cash app is and just send some. OK. Hey, man. God bless you, brother. Appreciate you, man. Have a good one. Listen, man.

Enjoy things, Iman. I think the I think the Texans are going to make the playoffs. I actually do think that's going to happen. You think about Gardner Minshew out there.

Am I going to trust that guy with my life? No, I think C.J. Strad.

I trust him a little bit more to go out there and not make a mistake. Eight five five two one two four. CBS. Greg is calling from Michigan. You're on CBS Sports Radio. What's up, Greg? Hey, J.R., Mr.

Positive. Thanks for taking my call real quick. I know you got some calls.

Yes, Aaron Rodgers talks out of his arse a lot a lot of times. And it's really getting to me. Sports is becoming the WWE. It's entertainment.

It brings in viewership. Yes, I know. And here's one that I want people to think about. Sometimes she opens her mouth a little bit too much. Kelly Stafford, Matt Stafford's wife, has a podcast and sometimes, you know, she just goes over the edge. But I like that. You know, I want free speech, obviously. And hey, love you.

Have a great night and everybody go for your dreams. Well, thank you, Greg, for calling from Michigan. Yeah, I know Kelly Stafford opened up her mouth at the beginning of the season or before the season about how her husband Matt didn't connect with his teammates. And we haven't heard from her since.

So maybe she's chilled out since then. Rolando calling from San Diego. You're on the J.R. sport re-show. Hey, what's going on, J.R.? Happy New Year.

So you as well. What's up? I'm kind of rooting for the Detroit Lions, man, because they're like the ultimate underdogs. I believe this is like the year of the underdog. I know it's been kind of mediocre, but like a team like the Detroit Lions I'm rooting for because I feel their pain. I mean, they've been down for a long time and they never won the Super Bowl, just like the Chargers. So I'm rooting for them. Or the Cleveland Browns, you know, one of these dark horses. They take it.

They go all the way with it. You know, so we'll see what happens, man. But I don't think Detroit, they don't have a defense, though, man.

That's a problem. Well, I mean, at the same time, their coach, as much as I like him for all of his talk and the contained fury that he now has, I still think he gambles a little too much. It'd be interesting to see if that bites him in the ass come playoff time.

But yeah, I would love to see some underdogs. Give me an NFC Finals matchup between the 49ers and the Lions. We talked about this earlier in the show with Randy McMichael. Thank you, Randy, for joining us.

Wouldn't it be cool to see Joe Flacco taking on the Ravens? Sign me up for all of it. Thank you, Rolando, for calling from San Diego. Mitch is here from Baltimore. Go ahead, Mitch, quick. Whoa, JR, what up, bro?

What it is? Go ahead, quick, quick. All right, it's going to be real fast, man. Let me tell you this, right? I think we're about to see another little dynasty going on right now with Lamar.

Uh-oh. Like, that bro locked in right now. I'm trying to tell you, like, honestly, it ain't nothing really going to stop him.

It's no defensive scheme. It ain't nobody that's really going to stop him from getting accomplished. What do you want to get done? As long as he keeps his guys together and he stays humble, and you know what, he already done that. He done got all the money, he's still living the same out. OK, Mitch, I hope so, but let him win one first and then we can talk about it, OK? OK, thank you, Mitch, for calling from Baltimore. Johnny from Ontario. Hey, you're on CBS Sports Radio, Johnny. What's up? Hi, OK, Harry? Yeah, loud and clear.

Please go ahead. I want to say Happy New Year to you, my brother, and I think the Philadelphia Eagles are going to win the Super Bowl. Oh, you think the Eagles are going to turn things around? You think the worst? We've seen the worst.

We now going to see the best? You got that right, my brother. OK, Johnny. Well, thank you so much for calling from Ontario. You have a happy new year, OK? Yeah, I hope I can get you on my YouTube channel at some point to do my little interview.

Oh, we can do it? Yeah, we can email me, JRSportBrief. Actually, I sent you an email here over the holidays. Did you? Well, I got to look at my email. Do you think I looked at my email over the holidays?

I'm trying to not look at my email. Send me an email today so I can see it as JRSportBrief with one S and I'll jump on your YouTube channel, OK? All right, brother. All right, thank you, Johnny.

Appreciate you for calling from Ontario. Hey, Kevin is calling from Houston. You're on CBS Sports Radio. What's up, Kevin?

Hey, what's going on, JRS? I'm good. Go ahead. I don't want us to get cut off.

Go ahead. I tell you what, I want to go back to the subject that you brought up earlier. What you're tired of, who you're tired of hearing from in 2024? I said number one was Aaron Rodgers. I'm sick of the media talking about Travis Kim and download Taylor Swift.

I can't watch the NFL game. They had nothing to do with Casey and they talk about these two people. What's the fascination? Who cares? I'm just tired of hearing about it. Social media all over the place. If there wasn't if there wasn't anybody who care, they wouldn't be talking about it. I think there's the answer, Kevin. Wrong crowd.

They need to hit another market with that. But hey, that's all I got to say, buddy. Appreciate you. Thank you, Kevin. I can understand I can understand you not want to hear about it.

I understand exactly why they're doing it. Hey, Ryan Hickey. Is there any athlete that you do not want to hear about or from in 2024? James Harden.

Oh, my God. Enough. Excuses blaming this person, blaming that coach for his poor play in the postseason.

He has an excuse for everything that he does and has a fall guy for everyone or everything he does except for himself. Yeah, I mean, it was enough. When is the last time you heard an active NBA player tell everybody, tell the entire world, hey, the GM is a liar. And then James Harden got what he want.

He didn't get his money, but he got what he wanted. He's now a member of the Clippers. We know Russell Westbrook is on the bench and they've been able to turn things around. Let's see what happens. But, you know, here's the thing. Typically, we don't hear from James Harden.

What does he do for what? One stupid comment throughout the course of the year? Oh, in May, probably the first-round exit from the Clippers. It's coming. You know it.

Oh, my God. First, you're getting the Clippers the hell up on out here already? Out.

Right away. Okay. All right. We'll see.

I think in the West, they might be a little bit more competitive between now and then, but we'll see. And then also, that fan, he said you were talking crap with him about the Colts? Oh, you know it. Come on.

Gotta let him know. Scott, I thought I was just going to come on here and trash the Colts and walk all over them. No way. No way.

You think the Colts are going to win? Gardner Minshew. Absolutely.

At home. You trust Gardner Minshew? I have no choice but to. Oh, okay.

You could be honest, Hickey. It's okay. I asked him hope. Hope is what I'm going to hold onto most.

Nothing wrong with hope. You're a little inconsistent, but we'll see. Listen, folks, thank you so much for tuning into the JR Sport Reshow here on CBS Sports Radio. We will be back tomorrow, 6 p.m. Eastern Time, 3 Pacific. Yeah, JR Sport Reshow, same JR, new spot. If you missed the show, you missed the top six, you missed the calls, you want to hear yourself, you missed Randy McMichael, whatever, hit rewind on the free Odyssey app. You want to find me? I am at JR Sport Brief everywhere on the Internet. We'll be back with you tomorrow. Be safe, be cool, be smooth, be well, don't move. Bart Winkler's coming up next here on CBS Sports Radio.
