This is the best of the Adam Gold Show Podcast brought to you by Coach Pete at Capital Financial Advisory Group.

Visit us at This is the Adam Gold Show. The Carolina Panthers will be taking on the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, the third straight home game for Carolina and who knows, maybe they can win a second one. San Francisco to me is like three quarters of a great football team.

And I'll see if Ryan Wilson concurs,, one of the super friends on the pick six podcast who joins us on the Adam Gold Show. So to me, the 49ers have a great defense and half the time, a good enough offense to win games based on their great defense and the fact that I think Kyle Shanahan does basically know what he's doing. But when they don't have their offense, they lose 11 to 10 to the Denver Broncos. So is that an accurate assessment of what the 49ers are?

No, that feels about right, Adam. And it may not even be necessarily a bad thing. We give Kyle Shanahan a lot of gruff at times for not getting things done in big moments. But there's a reason I have to trade Lance. I don't think he's particularly crazy about Jimmy Garoppolo.

But now he's back together with his ex girlfriend, so to speak, because they're stranded on this deserted island together. So it is what it is. And you get the good Jimmy G, which we saw. I mean, Jimmy G had one of his best games in a while, I felt like, in the Monday night game against the Rams.

And then you sometimes get the bad Jimmy G, like the week before, where lip readers were assuming that he was saying something to the effect that Kyle Shanahan is terrible at calling plays, which is sort of funny, given that Kyle Shanahan is considered generally one of the best play callers. But I think the most important thing beyond the defense, which bawled out the other night, is the writing game, which we know Kyle Shanahan has in his arsenal to make life easier for his quarterback, whether young or old. The playmakers with towards Kittle, Brown, and of course, Debo Samuel, the compliment running game. And then, you know, you insert quarterback and generally have success. So they're a good football team. They're arguably the best football team in that division, given the Rams.

Yes. Well, but it all comes down to Jimmy G for me. What are the Rams woes right now? It seems to me that a lot of it is injury related, but I also don't rule out the fact that some of it was is also Super Bowl hangover. And maybe last year was just their year related.

Yeah, I mean, you can make great case. It was their year because, you know, talking about the 49ers, Tchaikovsky Tartt, he doesn't drop that arm punt in the championship game. The Rams aren't even in the Super Bowl. Right? Jimmy G is going back to the Super Bowl.

So in one sense, they were gifted that opportunity. The other sense coming into the season, I wasn't sold on the Rams, mostly because I wasn't sure where Matthew Stafford's elbow was. We know he's always going to throw interceptions, right? And he's doing that again this year. The difference is he doesn't have people around him to help out.

Cooper Cup is his go to guy. And then, then who? Right? Right. Odell Beckham's obviously still injured. Alan Robinson might as well be with Odell Beckham on the sidelines because he's contributing about as much.

Right. And then you mentioned the injuries. The offensive line, you know, half joking, but half serious. It feels like they're down to the players 12 through 15 on the depth chart at offensive line. And that was made crystal clear against the 49ers. So all those things taken together, it doesn't matter, Sean, based on the plays because you don't have the players to execute. So there's a lot of things to sort through. Again, the division's not great.

Everyone's at two and two. But when you're having conversations like, you know what, we got to watch out for Kenosmith and the Seahawks. It might be time to try to figure out how to fix your offense as quickly as possible. I'm a few weeks away from looking at Geno Smith and the Seahawks as anything other than their two and two right now. I'm going to let that kind of play out a little bit before I really delve into that. Ryan Wilson,, one of the super friends from the Pick 6 podcast.

Is it weird that I actually think that the Dallas Cowboys might be a top five NFL team right now? Adam Gold here for my man, Coach Pete DeRuta with the Capital Financial Advisory Group. We are talking retirement.

Alright, Coach, simple. When do we start tax planning in retirement? We should start as soon as possible because here's one thing, Adam, taxes are not going away. And so the game here is we know the rules.

A lot of people want to ignore the rules or act like they don't are familiar with them. But the IRS knows the rules. And so we get to retirement. They're going to reach in and start taking some of their money out of your accounts. So the secret here is to put a force field around as much as possible by strategically moving some of our money to Roth IRA or some of the other vehicles that aren't taxed, like special life insurance policies.

You can borrow against your money there and never have to pay tax on your money that you build up inside your cash value. So there are a lot of strategies here. The one strategy that does not work is ignoring it. So let's make sure to not ignore it. The next 10 people will do for you your very own tax and retirement plan that will help you minimize taxation all the way through retirement. 800-661-7383.

All you got is call or you can text Adam to 21000 for Coach Pete DeRuta. No. And what's even weirder is that when you talk about the Dallas Cowboys, the first thing you talk about is how good their defense is. The fact that Cooper rushes are quarterback.

Right. And, you know, three weeks ago, like, oh, my gosh, this is it. They're going to try to cover up a low or whatever conversation we're coming up with.

And now it's none of that, which is absolutely bonkers given where they were. And by the way, they're playing the Rams team in L.A. And I would not be shocked at all if Cooper Rush does his game management thing. The defense takes over. Zeke Elliott continues to do this thing.

And Tony Pollard can do this thing. And the Rams come out of there with a loss. Again, the great news for the Cowboys is that there is no rush to get back there.

Again, we can talk about the NFC East, which turns out as bad as we perhaps thought. Yeah. In part because the Cowboys are football games without that press got out there. They're doing it in new ways, which is great news for Mike McCarthy, who is perennial on the hot seat. But but he's sort of made the case that it's sort of quiet as critics, at least for a few weeks.

Yeah. Look, I don't know if this if this has anything to do with Mike McCarthy or the fact that Dallas just does have a great defense and that Cooper Rush. You don't have to be amazing to win football games and also the comp level of competition. And this is I look around the league. I don't know how many good, really good teams. There are every week.

We do it on Thursdays now. We do hear the five best five worst. Man, it's hard to find the five best in a league right now. Like normally there'd be like 10 teams or so that are in that running. And gosh, is there six? I don't even know if there's six that I consider like everybody else to me is just like depends on the week. But there are I think Dallas is a top five team because of the defense and they can let Dak just kind of chill out.

Let the thumb really heal. I don't I don't understand why they're even discussing about rushing him back. I think to work for you, Jerry Jones, probably do that. But to your previous point, you look at the eight divisions for them. No team has a better than 500 record.

And I think that that gets to the underlying point. So we just go with the teams that have winning records in those divisions, Eagles, Dallas and the same division. Of course, Buffalo, Minnesota, Green Bay. I mean, I don't think anyone sold on Minnesota long term and then Kansas City.

And that's sort of it. And I think parity has been something that the NFL strives for. But I don't know if they want this much parity when it comes to teams like that. The Buccaneers are two and two with Tom Brady looking more human than ever.

But it makes for great conversations in terms of things we talk about. And it also means we don't talk about things like, OK, the Colts or the Chiefs or the Patriots are 12 and 0. Are they going to go undefeated?

Yes. Well, well, you know, if the Eagles win a couple of more games, although I don't think anybody believes that they're that good. I look at the Eagles as Buffalo light.

I don't care what Buffalo, if even if Buffalo had lost to the Ravens, I still think the Bills are the best team in the NFL. And I think we'll we'll we'll see that. We'll see it look like it. I think we'll look like it more as we get later in the season.

I want to I do want to ask you about Tua. But before before I do that, the Pittsburgh Steelers are making a quarterback change. They are going to Kenny Pickett. They did it in the middle of the game against the Jets, benching Mitch Chubisky for Kenny Pickett. Am I crazy that I don't see this as it doesn't really matter who the quarterback is, that the issues go well beyond the quarterback.

And if you can't block and that Canada is not very good at being an offensive coordinator in the NFL, that doesn't like I could they could have Aaron Rodgers and they still probably wouldn't be that much better. You are not crazy. And it just is proof that both your eyes work at him.

Thank you. That's exactly what's going on. That's right. You talk about the bills are going to prove soon how good they are. It's going to start this weekend because they have their two touchdown favorites over the Steelers. And the last time the Steelers were to touchdown underdogs is before the merger in 1970. So that tells you how far the Steelers have fallen. The thing about Kenny Pickett is they should have gone to him sooner.

I don't think that's a mystery. My question is, if you knew, as Mike Talman, you were you were concerned about Mr. Biscay, why not start Kenny Pickett for the entirety of the Jets game and get him some reps when you know that the upcoming schedule includes the bills, it includes the Bucks. Now there's some tough games coming up.

And now he has 30 minutes fewer to prepare because you didn't play him for whatever reason. So but to your larger point, the offensive line is in shambles. The playmakers aren't making plays. There are a lot of boneheaded mistakes, particularly in offense, that have cost them yards and eventually wins. And the defense is playing double dot T.J. Watt.

So look, man, if they win this game in Buffalo this weekend, that might be the greatest win of the Mike Talman era outside of the Super Bowl against the Cardinals. I'm not even joking. Ryan Wilson of CBS Sports is with us here.

All right. Tua Tagovailoa met with the NFL and the NFLPA. He said that he didn't even think he got he suffered a concussion in the game against Buffalo. I don't I don't even know what we're talking about here. June 19th, 2006, but it all started May 6, 1997, with the announcement that the Hartford Whalers were coming to North Carolina.

It's a story of transition, of heartbreak, of figuring it out on the fly. The Canes Corner look at the twenty fifth anniversary of the move presented by the Aluminum Company of North Carolina. Listen now.

Find Canes twenty fifth anniversary wherever you get your podcast. Players are responsible. They they know the they know the risks going in. Teams are responsible, but teams look at players as cattle. The league is responsible because they have a responsibility to at least put protocols in place to keep everybody as safe as possible, even though it's impossible.

How do we even talk about this issue without understanding that it's collective this problem? It's not just league, just team. But players are also part of it because Tua wanted to go back in the field. Yeah, and I think that's important to note because, you know, Richard Sherman caught some some heat for the Thursday night comments where he wasn't coming out and saying whatever he was supposed to say. But when you go back, Richard Sherman talked about this when he was a rookie. He knew he suffered a concussion and he lied to get back in the game because he needed to make a living.

And that's not uncommon. And I think the takeaway for me from that and from Tua's comments and every other just about every other player you talk to is that take the players out of the equation. They don't need to be making decisions on whether they want to play. That's why they're professional athletes. I'm not going to blame Mike.

Mike McDaniel, the rookie head coach. He's got a million other things going on. I'm sure he's not laser focused on whether Tua was stumbled or not.

He may not even seen it. But there's a reason they fired the independent neurologist after the fact who was responsible in part for letting Tua go back in that game. But I think it's a collective effort outside of the players where the NFL I mean, they're watching the same broadcast. We are can step in and say, hey, you know what? This feels like a terrible idea and could potentially blow up in our face. If, for example, Tua gets knocked in the head next week or days from now and then we have real PR issues. It's not difficult. I understand that the Dolphins want to win football games, but the league has no interest in the Dolphins winning that particular game. They do have an interest in keeping these players safe for a number of reasons.

And it feels like a pretty straightforward conversation to have to be like, you know what? This dude was stumbling after he hit his head on the turf. Let's sit him down for the rest of the game and then we'll re-evaluate in a couple days. So Jets, Dolphins, biggest game of the weekend, right? I'm kidding. Teddy Bridgewater it is.

It might be a little, yes. Well, no, they actually resurrected Teddy Bridgewater. They signed him and gave him a preseason and then gave him to the Saints for, I don't know, a third round draft pick or something.

So he should have warm feelings about his time with the Jets, which didn't last any longer than a couple of preseason games.
