I don't know if you know about those things, TJ Jefferson. A little football game on Saturday, NFL Network Football. Football. It's where two teams try to get in the air. Yeah, it's an international sport.

I think the final is on Sunday. Oblong ball made of pig skin through a vertical. Yeah, yeah. It pays for all of our livings. It's great.

This is true. Hi everybody. Thank you so much for joining us here on the Roku channel 844204rich wherever you take in your Rich Eisen show. Subscribe to our YouTube page, youtube.com slash Rich Eisen. Follow us on Twitter and on Instagram.

At Rich Eisen show. Don't bother following me because I'm not there. Because I'm a hothead and Rich is like, you are nowhere near Twitter. It's probably a good idea, right Mike Deltufo?

You've known me for 25 years. You know I have no business being on Twitter. No. No.

Not a good idea, right? You would be. A hot mess.

Right now, you would not like that. Oh wow. Hot garbage. What is it Chris? Last night was kind of a poop show on Twitter. Yeah, yeah. Musk was banning journalists. Keith Olbermann got suspended. Keith got suspended? Yeah. Because people were, he claimed.

For a mustache or for a facial hair? Musk claims that doxing his information but you know, flight records are protected by the first amendment so it's not really a big deal. You should be able to post that but whatever. I think when you start banning the journalists, I think we've seen this marching beat before, don't you think? The writing's on the wall. I mean hello? Well first of all, when they banned 2jiggy. That's what I'm saying. That was when it was officially time to get off the Twitter train.

How you gonna ban me of all people? The social media Graham Maister without social media. TJ. TJ, exactly.

So the second that happened, Susan was all downhill. Yeah, yeah. I'm not going to join just so I can go on there and spout a lot of holy hell at him so it's probably a good idea for me to stay dormant in my Twitter sphere.

Yeah. If I get back on though, I'm probably just going to be worse than I was before so it's probably best that they kick me. I was even bad before.

I guess I shouldn't even say worse than I was before because I ain't do anything. These are the end of days so let's just go out in a blaze of karate. This seems like a great time to welcome Rich Eisen's show into his own show. Hey, Rich Eisen joining his own show and we're talking end of days.

End of days is coming. What are you going to do? Are you going to take your phone and shoot video off of smaller television sets?

Is that what you're going to do? I mean, I did nothing. Well done, Rich. Well, I mean, thank you, Chris. I appreciate it. That's what we were doing is we were shooting video off of televisions of other people's content.

I was screenshotting something online. What's going on? I'm pacing, I'm pacing already. We've had three mimosas. We're really having a great show. Has it been the last hour and a half?

Do you miss us? It's been revealed that football paid for the mimosas. That's right. Thank you. Salute. We've had Marshall Faulk call in.

He does not eat in airports. We understand that. Now we've gotten to the basics of this.

I explained to him that we have a Twizzler situation in our household. Brock and I love combos. This is the content that you missed, Rich. We're watching Tiger and Charlie. The PNC is going on right now. We've got Tiger and Charlie. We're locked in. Roku is thrilled.

We just had a great conversation about Brock Purdy, about Christian McCaffrey, about Baker Mayfield and Matthew Stafford. Rich, if you want to check out that interview, you can just go to YouTube.com slash Rich Eisen. And Roku will re-air this entire show. So if you miss that, you can go back and watch it anytime that you like. Thank you, sweetheart.

You're welcome. I'm jealous of Annika Sorenstam's son's Jordan 4s. Just saying. I didn't see them. Are they pink, you said?

No, they're like Jordan 4 golf cleats. They're phenomenal. Sick.

I need a pair. Sick. Bad. You know, Rich has a game to call, guys. Should we get to your bit here? Oh, hey, sorry. Sorry, Rich.

Hey, good to see ya. Hey, what's more likely? Let's go. Hit it. Hit it. Hit it. Hit it. What? What's more likely?

Never say never, but never. Hey, Rich, what's up? How's Cleveland? Hey, you know, it's interesting with that Mike Tomlin drop. I've got a nugget here. Oh.

In real life studies. Oh. That John Harbaugh has 24 career wins against Cleveland.

That ties Mike Tomlin for the most ever one behind Chuck Nolte. How about that? I don't know. That's a nugget. That's a nugget.

That's a nugget. What's on your mind? What do you got? Hey, Rich, not sure if you're aware, but the Lions and Jets play each other on Sunday. What's more likely? The Lions make the playoffs or the Jets miss them? What the hell's the matter with you? What's more likely?

How about I'll give you a... No, you can't. You have to answer. Lions make the playoffs or Jets miss them. But what if I think both happen? Oh. What if I think both happen?

Oh. You know, what if I think that the... I'm looking at what the Lions are doing and how they're playing, and they're playing more consistently than the Jets are right now. I'm concerned that Zach Wilson still might not be the quarterback. I'm concerned about that. I'm concerned about the fact that, you know, the Jets don't have a tiebreak against New England, and they have the same record as them, whereas the Lions could have the same record as Seattle. They don't have a tiebreak against Seattle, but I don't think Seattle's making the playoffs the way they're playing right now. So I look at it both ways, and as much as I hope I'm wrong, I'll say both are going to happen.

I say the Lions make it and the Jets miss it. Wow. Wow. What's more likely? What's more likely? You remember Chris Brockman's Christmas gift on Wednesday, or you accidentally forget it at home? Oh, accidentally forget it at home. Yeah. A million percent. Run out without it.

I didn't see that on my list, so that's not an official what's more likely topic. Or, again, even though Brockman hates it when I don't give an answer specific to this, I'll say I purposely leave it at home. I purposely don't bring it. Wow, that's cold.

That's cold. Karma's coming your way, Rich. Oh, hey, the second best game on Saturday, Rich, is Bill's Dolphins. Of course, Browns, Ravens, number one, because you're calling it. What's more likely? Tua lights it up in the snow in a win, or the Bills and Josh Allen just blow them out?

Joe, the Bills and Josh Allen just blow them out. But you knew the answer to that, right? Were you hoping me I'd go in the other direction?

Well, look, you're Mr. Tua's elite, so I was just wondering if you were going to back your play there, or is it another take that's gone bad for you in this season? Oh, my God. Wow. Wow. I've had three mimosas. I can't be responsible for what I'm saying.

Honey, there's like another bottle in the fridge. I think I'm going to leave it in there. All right. All right, Chris. No, I'll say it's more likely that Josh Allen and the Bills do their thing right now. That's what I'll say. That's more likely. Chris just snorted, Rich.

He just snorted into his microphone. It's going to be so cold and so much snow in Buffalo. All right, what's more likely, sorry, TJ, NFC East powerhouse to get got on the road, Eagles or Cowboys? Cowboys.

Absolutely. I think they get got on the road. I'm not going to choose them right now, but I think that there it's more likely that the Cowboys get got on the road.

Certainly if they show up making their 10 wins is good enough for an 11. So I'll say that, although, as you know, having walked out the door yesterday, I am fascinated by Philadelphia and Chicago. But I think Jacksonville is currently playing better and is the better team and a better shot to knock off their NFC East visitor. I mean, last week was the best Trevor Lawrence has ever looked. So, I mean, certainly they're moving in the right direction, Jacksonville.

OK. All right. Next, five and eight NFC South team to keep their slim playoff hopes alive. Falcons or Panthers?

Every last one of them. The one most likely to keep their playoff alive. Falcons or Panthers? I'll go with the Panthers. I'll go with the team with the more veteran quarterback. I know we're seeing Brock Purdy show how it doesn't matter what your what your draft ranking is or your deposit greenness is supposed to do to hold you back. But I haven't seen Desmond Ritter take a single snap as a professional quarterback yet. And I like what the Panthers have done and are doing. And I will take Carolina for that right there. Sam Darnold, you can't quit him, Rich. I can't. The irony, the rich irony that Sam Darnold might prevent Todd Bowles from winning a division title with Tom Brady.

All people. I mean, that is the weirdest Madlib a Jets fan could possibly conjure up. It's been the weirdest season ever.

It's just been such a bizarre year. How many Madlibs did you do as a kid? Were you like because you always say that it's that it's that Madlib that I wasn't expecting. It is a Madlib. Like what better way to say that it's just it's it's a script that you can't figure out because the names are so crazy. And that's the way it works. I only go proper nouns.

I don't usually do the adjectives, you know. Do kids today do Madlibs? Do they even know what it is?

I'm going to tweet that out. Do you know what a Madlib is? Our kids know what it is because we we we we gave it to them. Yeah, we did. And then what was so annoying was we didn't realize how annoying Madlibs were. We thought they were great when we were kids. Our kids would put the same thing in and like, you know, put it in a body part, laugh their laugh their tush's off. But then it wasn't that much fun. Exactly. If we just continued this analogy, just for instance, in that in that Madlib I just came up with, it's just like who would have thought that poop would prevent poop from eating the poop? But that's that's basically what our children do with it.

People hear Madlib and they think Keith Olbermann. That's all. I don't know what to say.

What else you got? Did you hear that? Did you hear that? That Keith got suspended from Twitter, Rich? I just learned that. I know. I've heard it.

There was a lot going on last night. Hey, Rich, what's more likely to be the seventh seed in the AFC after this week, Patriots or Chargers? I'll go Patriots. They're currently there in it. And and I think they have a winnable game against the Vegas Raiders as opposed to the Chargers with the Titans who are going to tighten up at some point, I would imagine.

So I'll I'll go with I'll go with your past first. Chargers three point favorite at home. I don't know how many Titans fans are making the trip. All the all the Patriots have to do is just win.

That's it. They stay in it. You know, the Chargers need the Patriots to lose and they have to win. And the Jets the Jets winning is obviously very important in terms of the win loss. But it doesn't add anything to the major tiebreaker of conference.

Right. Because they're playing an NFC team. So Patriots win.

They stay in the spot. So I'll just choose them. Sneaky interesting game in Tampa on Sunday. Bengals box. Who's the more likely quarterback to throw for three hundred and two plus tighties in a win?

Burrow or Brady? What's your what's your definition of sneaky? The fact that that the whole country is watching it. Manson, Romo are calling it like what's so sneaky about it? It's sneaky that people I think a lot of people think the Bengals are just going to blow them out. And I don't necessarily think that's the case.

I don't know if they'll blow them out, but I think they're going to win this football game and I'm taking Burrow in it. You know, I'm I'm all in on him. I'm glad that I never jump ship on him at 0 and 2 since you say all my takes are terrible. That's not what I said.

Misrepresentation. OK. So I didn't jump ship on him at 0 and 2. Talked about how people are sleeping on him during during the hell going on month of March all the way up to now. I'm not jumping on him. I'll say I'll say Burrow.

Wow. So you didn't get the memo about not picking against Tom Brady. I care about, you know, I mean, it's not you know, I don't think Brady's, you know, working that magic that Brady still clearly has.

I think the circumstances he can overcome. I mean, he himself said that the season is. Yeah, but he's the yeah. And there's a lot of fun. And sometimes he's also the fun, you know. And I know it sounds like our kids mad lips now, but it's the truth.

You know, like that's that's what's going on. So I'll take Burrow. We need one more. All right.

We'll get one more. Did you call Tom Brady a butt? I'm just I'm just want to make sure they clip this. He has a butt chin. The butt. Just the 1T butt. That's what he sometimes provided. I'm sorry. Wait, I just got distracted. What? He looks amazing.

He does. Last one, Rich, a little cross pollination here on Sunday. What's more likely more goals scored in the World Cup final or total touchdowns in Sunday night football? Giants.

Oh, sorry. I just woke up from how boring this game is going to be. Commanders. That's a great one, Chris. Now, just so you know, Rich, there were four touchdowns in the tie a couple of weeks ago.

Commanders, Giants. And of course, we got Messi and Bape in the final Sunday morning World Cup. OK, I'm going to go now again, is this regulation? If there's if there's overtime, what are we talking in regulation? Those goals count. So I'm going to go regular time and extra time. Total goal score. I will go.

I will say there will be more touchdowns in Sunday night football. Oh, really? Yeah.

So you're feeling like 2-1 final in the World Cup then, huh? I've got one for you on this construct. OK, I just thought of this. Here we go. Mike Del Tufo, you've got to be involved in this. OK, OK. What is what is Mike's away? Which total? Which total?

Which total will be higher? Offensive points by the Cleveland Browns in the game I call tomorrow. Total stoppage time in the World Cup final. First half and second half.

First half, second half stoppage time. I'm going. I'm going points by the Browns. Wow. I like that. Great question.

Mike. Yeah, because I think there's going to be six. I think there's at least six per half, if not more in the final. So you think the Browns can score at least two touchdowns? Yeah, I take that over. Browns have had only one offensive touchdown since Watson came back.

Oh, OK. So that's six. Mike Hoskins says stoppage time. Stoppage time. Stoppage time can get up there eight, nine, ten minutes. Yeah, we've seen ten minutes before. Stoppage time expert.

What do you got? Great question. Take the stoppage time. I'm putting this out as a poll. Take the stoppage time. Go. Take the stoppage time. There you go.

A good good. I would take stoppage time, too, because as we know, as we know, if the Browns towards the end of this game have about 14 points offensively, the referees, when the time's up, not going to say, well, the Browns have an opportunity to score again. Let's give them the time to see it play out in the same way the officials will do that for a set piece in World Cup soccer. What do you think there'd be more substitution substitutions, though, in a World Cup final? It's possible if there's if there's a penalty kick, if there's a lot more flopping, there could be. That's another reason you go stoppage time. But we'll check our work on Monday. I like it.

I love this stuff. That's true. And also, Rich, you know, if it goes to extra time, there's stoppage time in each half of extra time. Yes. This is regulation, regulation, regulation.

OK, regulation. Who would be a more successful player in the National Football League, Messi or Mbappe? What's their height?

What kind of flipped what I did? Who's got stats? Who's got stats? Messi's like 5'8". Hold on. Hold on.

Hold on. Messi's not. I think Mbappe is taller, isn't he? I'd go Mbappe.

Messi's probably. Mbappe's 5'10". Messi's like 5'8". Really?

Yeah. Mbappe looks like 6'1". I thought he was I thought he was bigger. I thought he was 6'2". 6'1". Which is big for a soccer player. A footballer.

Messi 5'7". So it's more stoppage time than Brown's offensive points, right? OK, so pick six does not count. Right.

And more Washington commanders, Giants, touchdowns combined than World Cup goals on Sunday in the final. Very good. Love it.

And that's our preview of the World Cup. What are you most looking forward to in your game, Rich? What are you interested in seeing? Oh, I am interested.

I don't know. I just want points. I'm genuinely concerned I'm not going to see points. The Ravens defense is out of its skull. The Browns love to run it. The Ravens can stop it.

You know, Watson has not looked anything but rusty so far. I just want points. That's all I'm looking for. I'm looking for points and to see if Kurt's showing up with that shiny jacket. He's still keeping that under wraps. I don't know yet. Do you think Brenda picked that out for him?

Great question. Yes. What do you think? It would go with her hair.

She would look great in it. What do you think? I don't think that. He looks like a raider. Doesn't he? I think it was her choosing it. Also, I think he got paint box.

They're showing a shot of him and his face looks a little paint box there. I'm just saying. I don't know. I'll ask him. I'll give you the answer.

I hope that nobody puts out a meme with anything that you're wearing. That's all I'm just going to say. I'm going to leave it at that, okay? Have a great time, Rich. Thank you. Take care. Bye. I'll keep the seat warm, Rich. And he's gone.

Michael Irvin, the playmaker, when we come back, you know, he loves, loves, loves a cold weather game.

When I think of Michael Irvin, I think of, oh, I think of a freezing cold, cold tundra. You're hanging out with some friends and putting back a few drinks. A few becomes a few too many. As the evening comes to an end and people start to head out, you think of calling for a ride. Ah, you live nearby. You can make it home okay.

It's no big deal. What are the odds you'll get pulled over anyway? And even so, what's the worst that could happen? Your insurance goes up, you lose your license, you lose your job, you total your car, you kill someone. Everyone knows about the risks of driving drunk.

The results are tragic and often deadly. However, that still doesn't stop everyone from getting behind the wheel while under the influence. That's why police officers are out there right now looking for impaired drivers on our roads to save lives. So if you think you're okay to drive after a few drinks, think again. Play it safe and plan ahead to get a ride. It only takes one mistake to change your life or someone else's forever. Drive sober or get pulled over.

We have a little bit of wine and I just need some of the bread and then we'll be good. I think we're going to call an audible. Michael Irvin is meant to call in momentarily, but until we hear from Michael coming off that segment, let's get to you and do some fantasy gospel.

Rise up. The fantasy church is open. Yes, I didn't come here to preach the other day and I came in a little bit early. So, you know what we say, Susie, we stay ready. So we got to get ready.

Brother Brockman, Brother Del Tufo, Sister Susie, Sister CC in the back. We want to get you ready for those fantasy playoffs. And I'm gonna let you know who's going to lead you to the land, that promised land of fantasy glory.

Yes, indeed. Now let's start week 15. Now we got the playoffs going, Chris.

And these decisions, these decisions are going to either win some playoff matchups or lose some playoff matchups. So exactly there, Brother Mora. So I'm hoping Brother Jefferson can lead you down the path of righteousness. And I'm going to tell you right now that these players should be sitting next to you on Sunday in the pew.

Make sure they're getting their tithes and offerings to the church, though. Don't forget about that. David Carr, got David Carr against the Patriots and Derek, Derek, Derek.

I'm sorry. Derek Carr. Let's start that again. Derek Carr. Chris, what does Bill Belichick do better than any coach in the national football league? Tax out quarterbacks.

He takes, he takes. Well, he takes away the thing you love the most, right? Whatever player you love the most, he's going to make sure that person has an awful day. Therefore, I'm thinking Devontae Adams is going to be in for a rough Sunday. And so therefore, I think Derek Carr might be in for a rough night against the Patriots.

I say start. Sit, Derek. I don't know why I keep calling him David.

I'm sorry about that. Then we got Gabriel Davis. He's hit or miss. Brockman and I have him on our fantasy team.

Right. And Rich does, too. You don't ever know what you're going to get out of Gabe Davis, man. He's got 11 PPR points or less in four games in a row right now. And he's been held to under 40 yards receiving in three consecutive games. So I'd say if you have a better option, sit him and Brother Cordero Patterson.

Look, I have him as well. The Saints haven't allowed a rushing touchdown since week nine. And only two backs have scored more than 10 PPR points against them over the span. He hasn't scored a touchdown since week nine. So if you have a better option, I'd say use them and sit Mr. Patterson.

Now for the players who will hopefully lead you to that promised land of milk and honey. Jonathan, people, Jones and I bring him up because Rich is calling this game, right? He had 12 targets last week for one hundred and twelve yards. Now, the thing is, four of the Sean Watson's five deep balls that he threw went to DPJ. Right. So remember how much that Watson loved it will fuller downfield.

All right. Let's kind of insert DPJ into that spot. Take a chance, man, because I have a feeling that he could see something magical happen on Sunday. And plus, you know, Rich is on the call.

So, you know, something's good going to come of it. Brother Chris Moore, Texans against the Chiefs. Look, he had 10 catches for a buck 24 against the Cowboys last week. And six receivers have scored at least 14 points. PPR points. Chris, it's also pretty important if you are in the PPR system, 14 PPR points against that Chiefs D. So take a chance on Chris Moore, man, because it's always around this time of year, Chris, where that guy you don't think of is going to come out, he's going to win you a fantasy for real.

No doubt. You know what I'm saying? And don't take Foreman against the Steelers. The Panthers running back. Look, Steelers have allowed an RB to score at least 16.

I'm sorry, 18 points in three of their past four games. You know, Hubbard's still there, but I think Foreman is the RB one and they trust him in close games. So I'd say go with Foreman on that one.

And now, man, the header got picked. This is the pick where you look at the stats in front of you and go with that. Or you dig deep down into your gut and say, I believe this is tough because this man has let me down all season. I have him on my team. But for some weird reason, I just have a feeling about Alvin Kamara.

Oh, wow. He's kind of been a disappointment this year. But I'm telling you what, the Falcons have allowed a running back to score at least 18 PPR points in six of the past seven games. Now, he scored nine points or less in four of his past five, and he doesn't have a touchdown since week eight. So you're probably thinking, brother Jefferson, what are you thinking?

I don't know. Sometimes you just have to do it right. You just got to reach down deep and go with your gut. And something tells me that brother Alvin is going to show improve this week. And then just a couple of guys to pick up if you have room on your roster. I think that they can help you win a fantasy playoff game or two. That's a peer strong of the Patriots. Chris running back, especially for Montres hurt Zay Jones of the Jags. Look, him and to Lawrence have a little combo going.

He might be worth a stash. And Elijah Moore of the Jets. Now, I wrote this yesterday before the news came out about the Jets quarterback situation.

Didn't have enough time to change it, but it doesn't matter. I think Mike White's coming back in a week. So, yeah, Elijah Moore, he might be a guy who can help get you over that fantasy hump. And brothers and sisters, I wish you all the best in your playoffs. Can I get an amen? Amen.

Let us play. Yes, indeed. Does your voice hurt when you do that now? Because I don't do it the whole time.

Yeah. When I first time when I first started to do it, which is like that's a lot over five minutes. So I kind of learned to adjust and because it's the adjusting I think is the best part. I like when you go heavy, heavy and then just talk to like a regular T.J. because it kind of makes it more fun. Got skills, brother. I just called you brother. I don't know why I called you brother. It hurts to think about it.

Thank you. I'm the brother Jefferson sitting on there sipping on some devil's juice. I don't know if I'm supposed to. It is the devil's shoes, but it's a Friday and it's a holiday weekend. So I feel like, you know, is it a holiday weekend?

Actually, I think it just made that up. Every weekend is a holiday weekend. Every day is a winding road. Yeah. Every day. Every day is a winding road. It's called the 405.

But whatever. Michael Urban, we're going to try to get him on for the last segment of the show towards the 12 o'clock hour on the east on the West Coast. Three o'clock on the East Coast. Wherever you take in this Rijasan show here on Roku, on YouTube, what name you.

Whatever it is that you take in the show. We're just glad that you did. Thanks for stopping by today. We appreciate you. Yeah, we we appreciate you. Right. You take the A off the top of that.

Right. We appreciate you. We appreciate you.

We appreciate you. What are your plans for the weekend, Brockman? Are you coming to my house and dropping your kids? I'm solo with Cage.

It's possible. Sarah's performing in Reno this weekend with Daniel Tosh. So it's just a boys boys day at the house on on Saturday and Sunday. So I don't know. Probably watch a little football.

Might come over to your house. Not sure. TJ might come over. Never know.

You never know. So we're just kind of hanging out and surviving. So this might be like a Vito's Pizza kind of weekend where you just come over and drop your kids and eat stuff and then. And leave. And let your kids watch Cage the way you and I drink and watch games.

Yeah, because the way I look at it is this is a win win scenario because my kids love Cage and they like to be the older kids and take care of. And by Saturday afternoon, nobody wants to be with their kids. Right. And there's no games this weekend.

There's no attorneys. Yeah. So guess what happens? Two dogs, four kids, three pizzas. I think it's perfect. I brought some fudge for you guys. And this is from my childhood candy shop from Aunt Leia's Fudge on Nantucket, Massachusetts, on the island. This is a great stocking stuffer.

If you're really worried about what stocking stuffer to do. I brought this for you, Chris, because it is green monster fudge. Oh, yes. Look at this. Come over here and smell this. Let's go to break.

Maybe we can get her to call. No, I don't want to like we're going to go to break in a second. I want to be away from the way. Hey, this is my seat.

I'm pulling the shot. There's a mic up there. I'm just saying to you guys, we're going to have it in the next segment. A taste test because I brought Christopher the green monster for any of your last minute stocking stuffer problems. You just go to Aunt Leia's Fudge in Nantucket and look at this. Ready? Let's try this. What do you think? Oh, my God.

Right. It tastes like mint chocolate. When's the last time you had fudge? Get over here and try it. I'm not a big fudge fan. You got to try it. You got to try it. Come on. Bring it over to Mikey. Bring him some.

See, see, come try this. Because what other sports show do you watch that tells you where to get your stocking stuffers? Because honestly, I'm at that time. I'm at that time in the season where I've got three kids, seven days plus. They're like, you know, Christmas, too. So it's like we got to I'm into stocking stuff. We're getting down to crunch time, too.

It's December 16th. Yeah. We got nine days before the big day. Yeah. If you celebrate.

So it's like go time. You got to really make some last minute tough decisions. Tough decisions. I'm trying to get Michael Ervin on the phone while texting to get stocking stuff. This is a very complicated situation.

I think it's a number doesn't recognize the answers. You got to let him know that we're calling. I'll call him.

I'll call him. Isn't it delicious? Got to do everything for real. It's like a chocolate version of mint chocolate chip ice cream. It's phenomenal. Also, for all of you Roku executives, this is basically a little preview on what you're getting for Christmas.

Shout out Roku Joe. Chocolate covered cranberries. This is my kind of crack, right? I'm not a fudge person, but see this right here. This is heaven in a box. Okay, Pookie.

Yeah, I think we have a new we have a new segment here. Susie's stocking stuff is. It's heaven in a box. It's heaven in a box.

So hopefully Michael Ervin. Sneaky good games. Mike, I'm struggling. I've really had a bad two weeks. I got to bounce back.

Sneaky good games. Let's do this. We're going to break. Let's go. We're going to break sneaky good games after the break. Let's go to break when we're back. We're going to we're going to try to find the playmaker. I'm going to find him for let me call him real quick.

Welcome back to the rich eyes and show Susie Schuster.

We are here for you closing out this Friday. I'm looking for auto zone. Hold on.

Oh, you can listen to the NFL on the NFL app on the Odyssey app on Westwood, one sports dot com via Westwood one station streams or by asking Alexa to open Westwood one sports sponsored by Auto Zone. It's time to say good night to that check engine light with the free auto zone fix finder service. It'll help troubleshoot the likely cause of your light for free. Restrictions apply. Get in the zone. Auto zone.

Auto zone. That's a good that's a good jingle. You know, you know, the jingle that my kids love, you know, the one eight seven seven cars. Don't get me started. Makes me so angry. R.S. cars for kids. That makes me so angry. That makes everybody angry. I love it. Like so now we're going to a lot of kids who can't spell over cars for kids. I don't like it.

My kids love and I think I like it, too. It's really annoying. You know, the new BK jingle, the have it your way. That one at Burger King now. No, come on. You know, that one's on all the NBA games. Have it your way.

It's like some guy. You know, how do you not know this because you're letting me down through commercials. Oh, God.

See, I don't know how to do that. Do you know what happened yesterday? I had to watch the game. The kids were not in the house.

Kids were not in the house. I had to text Rich in Cleveland to ask him how to use the Apple TV, Mike or Mike. What's it called? The clicker remote, the remote. And he was so irritated.

It's like Suzy. Come on. So I wrote back. I wrote back.

Do you think this helps any? It was a great it was like a pseudo fight via text. But I don't know how to turn on the Apple TV and find the Amazon, you know, stuff that whatever it's called, the prime video. That's the one. So honestly, I had to wait for Cooper to get home because I was apparently didn't turn on the audio situation correctly. I literally had to wait for my 11 year old to get home to put on the TV. That was great.

It was a winning moment in my life. But hey, man, I'm here. Hey, so, guys, TJ, I know you think Odell's signing with the Cowboys, right? Jerry Jones has made it known for weeks that he really wants Odell on the Dallas Cowboys. Well, as you said earlier, it's not official, so I don't know what's going on. It's not official, official. You know, he's told USA Today last night that it's basically done or close to done, even if it's just for a playoff game or two. Look, Chris, I haven't gone out and made a jersey yet, so. Not yet.

I mean, so like 10 minutes ago, Odell just tweeted this out. All weapons formed against me got a chance. Anyone want to interpret that?

Any idea what that means? Is that a rap lyric, TJ? It might be. All weapons formed against me got a chance.

I don't. Because, you know, the saying is no weapon formed against me shall prosper. OK, so is this a spin on that? Yes, it is.

It is. So what does he mean? Oh, all weapons formed against me got a jam. This I found got a jam and a song lyric. Drake. Oh, twenty one savage hours in silence lyrics.

All weapons formed against me got a jam. I mean, this is going to sound like a 50 year old reading this. Could we be more white?

Brought you round the dog. The thing is, I'm not and I don't care. Do I really want to go here? No, probably not.

Nope. So anyway, Odell is tweeting out. We got Jerry Jones making news that he wants Odell.

It's basically done, but not quite done. We want him for a playoff game or two, but it's mostly about next year. And then Odell's tweeting out some cryptic stuff.

So maybe there's some news to come later today or this weekend. But maybe Odell to the Cowboys. Mark my words. Mark my words. Jerry Jones does not like everyone talking about the Niners and the Eagles.

He is saying right now. We're in this. I like it.

I like it. It's a bold move. I mean, I'm all on Odell to the Cowboys. I am all in on Odell to the Cowboys. Merry Christmas, Dallas. You're welcome.

Welcome to the party, pal. I just don't know. I think when it comes to Odell, I think I think him not wanting to work out for teams is a sign. And I just think to me, it's maybe he's not 100 percent. He's not all the way back yet. Maybe he could make an impact in a playoff game. TJ for what, like 10, 15 play? Is he on a play count? And Chris, I mean, sometimes one play is all it takes. Yeah.

You know what I mean? And also, you got to look at it past just this year if he's if they do sign him or whatever team signs him. I'm sure he's going to be looking to having in a fully healthy Odell next year as well. And you're probably going to get him at a favorable price.

I would imagine, you know, I don't know about contracts. We're not numbers guys here, but I would assume that this is also a move for the future. So whoever gets him is probably looking long term, not just this season. But obviously these teams are in win now mode. So it's going to be interesting to see what happens. I feel like I feel like this is a bold move for him, for Jerry Jones. I think Odell Beckham Jr.

It's a perfect personality for there. I mean, he is loading up. I mean, let's just say what it is. He's loading up for this big win. I mean, yeah, we got James Washington came back and then we just signed T.Y. Hilton. And now if Odell comes in, I mean, because everyone was saying, well, they're not going to go after him because they just signed T.Y.

Hilton. Well, why not? Sometimes more is more. Yeah. I mean, it's more is better.

Yeah. I mean, look, at this point in the season, it's it's you're either loading to win or you're waiting for next year. And Jerry Jones is not a wait for next year kind of guy.

True that for that. And he has told us on this show that he wants a fourth Super Bowl championship more than anything in this entire world. Susie, he did. I'm pretty sure you probably never saw half baked, but he did his Sir Smoke-a-Lot impression where he called in and he's literally like, God, if you listen and help like he was. He's he said that. And correct me if I'm wrong, Chris, after that, after the second one, he asked the Lord that if he gave him a third one, he never asked for anything else. And now at this point, he's like, well, I know what I said before, but so he's putting it out there. He's he's working all angles, which and I have been so lucky, which has been with NFL Network for, I don't know, the dawn of time and 20 years.

I think 20 years. Yeah. Yeah. I have to I should know this because it's our anniversary.

Same thing. So happy anniversary. And every year we get the greatest Christmas ornament from the Jones family. And it is so beautiful. I'm going to ask me, stop me if you're surprised here.

OK, OK. It's huge. It's as big as our tree. And I love a Christmas tree.

And it is the most beautiful thing. So I feel like Jerry only knows go big or go home. I think this is the perfect acquisition for sure.

If if if the acquisition actually is acquired. Let's just talk about it like it's like it's a fait accompli at this point. I mean, we've got a Twitter. We've got a tweet. We got a tweet. And we have a Jerry. We don't know what it means. We've got a Jerry soundbite.

We have a Jerry soundbite. That's good enough for me. That to me is like done.

That's like that's legal tender, in my opinion. I'm just saying I still not going to allow myself to get my hopes up until something official comes out. But it's nice to, you know, play the game and hope that it happens. Is number three available for you guys, TJ? I'm looking up the numbers. I believe Brett Maher wears a number. So what number is Odell going to wear?

Well, can't a player. Gallup has 13. So that's gone. Maybe one. No. Yeah.

One I think might be available. One is Kelvin Joseph. Oh, that's right. You said Brett Maher. But sometimes a player will say sometimes a player will say take the number because you're who you are. I mean, so if you want to win and you're a cowboy and he comes in, wouldn't you say, you know, you can't you can't change. You can't change in season. It's just before Anthony Brown is three for you guys. OK, I don't believe you can't change them because remember, Chris, there was that whole thing about if you change your number, you got to pay. You got to buy the jerseys that are already printed.

And that's a big that's a big mess. So, yeah, I was a Michael Gallup's 13. I don't know what number Odell would wear. You know, the numbers are relevant at this point.

Just put pen in the paper and then we can. Number eight seems like you'd be wearing number eight. Sneaky good games. Let's close out this show with some sneaky good vibes. Here's Chris Brockman with sneaky good games.

Contests likely to surprise you with their heretofore undisclosed competitive value. As always, thank you to Tom Brokaw. Mike, we're struggling one in three each of the last two weeks. Don't after such a hot start. I was on fire. I was what, 14 games over five wonders.

I was killing it. We've hit a bump in the road, T.J., but look, let's go. There's four weeks left in the regular season and then we got playoffs. We know will dominate playoffs. Let's go into the playoffs strong.

All right. I like Buffalo. Look, it's going to be snowing. It's going to be cold. The Dolphins don't have enough bench heaters to keep those bucks warm to have a chance on Saturday in Buffalo. Who has seen snow, though?

He ain't seen Western New York snow. I'm going to lay the seven and take the bills. Cincinnati and Tampa, the Bucks, we've seen them play. They can't score points. I love Tom Brady. They might even win this game, but it's going to be under 45.

I like under the total in Tampa. The Patriots getting points in Vegas, T.J.? Come on. The Pats are hot. We're going to stay the seventh seed. Give me New England to win the game outright. And Kansas City and Houston, I think the Texans showed T.J. last week against Dallas that anything is possible. This is a 14-point spread.

I don't want to do that. I'm going to root for offense in this game. K.C. might score 50 by themselves.

Who knows? But I think Houston gets enough on the board to push this over the total, 49-and-a-half. K.C. Houston going over, and we're going 4-0 this week.

Let's go. Well, Susie, thoughts? Do you have any idea what I just said? No, I was basically buying stocking stuffers during the last segment. Is that wrong? I'm just being honest. Not wrong.

Some of that stuff, it's like the music comes on, you start to drone, you start to just tune out. I was just busy buying sweatpants for Cooper. What kind?

Champion. Red. I got him a sweet Celtics warm-up set. I mean, all Cooper wants to do is wear sweats that have Celtics stuff on them. Green, black, you name it, he is so fired up. He's down for comfort.

I like that. He's 11. He doesn't know better. By the way, I can't get my kids out of sweat stuff. I think this is like the post-COVID thing. It's like, thank God they don't go to a school with a uniform because today was pajama day for Taylor. And I said, when isn't it pajama day? I mean, forget it.

It's just a joke. So, yes, thanks for that great segment. You got it. I have no idea what you said, but I'm sure it was great. And if you want to watch that segment, you can watch it back on Roku because they re-air right here on Roku.

And it's so great because you can actually know what Chris Brockman had to say. I'm just saying. What's your Christmas present, TJ, football wise? What do you want to see under your tree Christmas day? I mean, are we looking into the future or is it just something that for right now? Well, isn't it like, OK, it's today, the 16th. What's today? The 16th.

So we have that 16 minus 25. Yeah, we've got nine days. I think the only Christmas gift I want is for all of my many teams just to stay healthy.

Yep. You get ready to say, you know, I need I need a healthy and I need a healthy heart and I need Maxie to get healthy for the Sixers. I need Kawhi and Paul George to stay healthy. You know, I need I need Justin Verlander and Scherzer to take a swig out of the fountain of youth. You know, yeah, that's what I need. You see, Verlander was at a forty five thousand dollar a week.

Oh, no. Four hundred and fifty some something crazy. They were at some house in St. Barts this week for like I think was something like four hundred fifty thousand for the one day. Rich, why would he go from the Astros who are basically guaranteed to make the World Series every year to the Mets who don't even get home playoff game? Maybe his wife wanted to live in New York City. You can live in New York City when he's done playing.

True. New York City's been around for a long time. It's not going anywhere.

It's still there. In case you were wondering, what is your Christmas wish? Chris Brogman. My Christmas wish.

First of all, don't disrespect the Metropolitan Theater. We got a minute to go. What's your Christmas wish?

I want the Celtics and Bruins to both win their championships because I have a parlay ticket with that and that would be a nice payout for me. Mikey, what do you got, babe? Peace on Earth.

That's like the Steve Martin segment, right? And I want all the children of the world. I want all the money from me. I want to go out of there. Wait, wait, wait. Total power, right? I want absolute power. I want all the money.

And then I want all the children. Very funny skit. The Saturday Night Live this past week with Steve Martin and Martin Short was laugh out of the funny. I haven't seen it. I haven't recorded it. I haven't watched it yet. Oh my God, it's so great.

Well, just like you can watch this show again on Roku or on YouTube, you could actually go and watch Saturday Night Live, but all I want for Christmas is you. Hey, Susan. The Rich Eisen Show. We had fun today. I know, it was a good one.

All I want for Christmas is the Rich Eisen Show audience. It's a treat, Susan. I always say that.

It's a treat. Thanks to everybody who called in. Have a great weekend.

We love having the calls. Enjoy the World Cup. Enjoy NFL weekend. Thanks for everybody who makes this show happen and for all of you who take it in. It is much appreciated.

Happy Holidays to everyone out there from The Rich Eisen Show. And even so, what's the worst that could happen? Your insurance goes up, you lose your license, you lose your job, you total your car, you kill someone. Everyone knows about the risks of driving drunk.

The results are tragic and often deadly. However, that still doesn't stop everyone from getting behind the wheel while under the influence. That's why police officers are out there right now looking for impaired drivers on our roads to save lives. So if you think you're okay to drive after a few drinks, think again. Play it safe and plan ahead to get a ride. It only takes one mistake to change your life or someone else's forever. Drive sober or get pulled over. Paid for by NHTSA.
