This kid's electric, all gas, no brake, cut serious, Tony. This is the Rich Eisen Show. What bad ankle, he is limping back to the huddle.

Don't underestimate how tough Patrick Mahomes is. The Lombardi Trophy has a red and gold reflection. We're gonna celebrate this right here, baby. What does the moment mean to you, Andy?

It means a lot, I could kiss you right now, but I'm not gonna do that. Earlier on the show, Fox Sports NFL rules analyst Mike Pereira two-time Super Bowl champion and Greenlight podcast host Chris Long. Coming up, your phone calls and more. And now, it's Rich Eisen.

We'll take your phone calls. This whole hour is just us chopping it up, what we saw over the weekend in our week in Arizona that we just completed.

And we already had overreaction Monday. We spoke to Mike Pereira in hour number one about that holding call that's pissed off all of Philadelphia. And we also chatted with Chris Long, former Super Bowl champion for Philadelphia and for New England. If you missed any of that, like I said, we re-air. There's our podcast, there's our YouTube page, there's the collection on our Roku channel page.

844-204-RICH number to dial. I am proud to say, certainly to the legion of folks who get rubbed the wrong way when they think anybody who talks nationally in the sports world about Patrick Mahomes and gushing about him. I'm pleased to say it's taken me two full hours to finally get to this subject.

But get to it, we shall. Because we talk all about legacies leading into the game. And when we get particularly bored, we wonder whose legacy will we improve the most?

Get out of here with that. Anybody who wins the Super Bowl, that's whose legacy is improved the most. Who needs that Super Bowl win more when you already have one? Compared to somebody who doesn't have any?

Get out of here. Can't have enough. As Gordon Gekko once said, greed, for the lack of a better word, is good. And sports is all about greed being good. And Patrick Mahomes, with this Super Bowl win, now enters very rarified air. We talked about Mount Rushmore's for coaches and you could put anybody on there. We mentioned in our overreaction Monday segment how Andy Reid now is in a rare club that has only four coaches in it. He's one of them. Landry, Belichick, and Schuler are the others. 200 wins as a head coach now with multiple Super Bowls.

That could be a Mount Rushmore. You mentioned TJ. What about Chuck Knoll and you, Mike Del Tufo, said what about Bill Walsh? Certainly since you referred to yourself as the Bill Walsh of audio.

Exactly. And so, you know, I saw on our Twitter feed, what about Joe Gibbs? That's the whole idea about an argument about Mount Rushmore. What about Mount Rushmore of quarterbacks? If you want to choose safe four, there's only four players all time with multiple MVP awards and multiple Super Bowls. And they are Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, Joe Montana, and now Patrick Mahomes.

He has joined this group. Seven? I mean... For Brady. Peyton Manning has the same number of Super Bowls as Mahomes now has, two, but Manning has five MVPs. Brady, three MVPs, seven Super Bowls, Montana, just a mere two MVPs and four Super Bowl wins. And so Mahomes has got himself in this spot.

By the way, at age 27, 27 years of age, and what he's doing is changing the entire direction of a franchise. Was Andy Reid a Hall of Fame head coach when he wound up in Kansas City? No, not yet. Was Andy Reid a Hall of Fame head coach in Kansas City with Alex Smith there?

No, not yet. He's a Hall of Fame head coach now. Travis Kelce, was he a Hall of Famer on a career path, Hall of Fame path with Alex Smith?

No. This is no disrespect to Alex Smith, who I saw looked great, by the way, at the Super Bowl. Patrick Mahomes is that guy.

He's that unicorn. He's changing lives. He's changing the lives of all Kansas City sports fans. I saw Paul Rudd with his awesome son Jack Rudd at the game, who, by the way, I've known since he was a baby in a car seat. My God, I'm old.

He sounded just like his dad. Schrager was interviewing him on Fox and he said, I just want to thank Patrick Mahomes for existing. That is the perfect way it should be said by a Kansas City Chiefs fan.

Thank you for existing, Patrick Mahomes, because without you, this franchise might still be roaming the desert. This franchise in the five year span that Mahomes has been starting since 2018, 75 wins. That is second place for the most wins in a five year span, including playoffs in NFL history. Two wins behind the 03 to 07 Patriots. We all know the 07 Patriots didn't lose a regular season game. One ahead of the 2014 to 2018 Patriots, which was the last great run for Tom Brady there, too. So Brady's surrounding him in this. He's right there in that warm center, like a nice, rare steak.

He is unbelievable. The 75 wins in the last five seasons, most in the NFL. Second most, the bills with 57 last five seasons, including playoffs. The point differential the Chiefs had their plus seven hundred twenty nine.

Next closest team of the Ravens at five ten on the plus side. He has one thousand percent changed the course of not just his career, but the careers of everyone around him and the franchise that employs him. Period.

End of story. And what he has done now last night. We will look back when he goes into the Hall of Fame. And I can say that after just five seasons. When he goes in the Hall of Fame, we will look back at Super Bowl 57 and say that's the moment when Mahomes started becoming the goat of his own generation. That's the moment when Mahomes became the face of the NFL. That's the moment when Mahomes took over the entire league because it was his second Super Bowl win.

He now enters the pantheon of a multiple. Super Bowl game winner. He also ended a very long streak of league MVPs playing in the Super Bowl and losing. Last quarterback who won the league MVP and then won the Super Bowl that he was playing in was Kurt Warner. Back in 1999 and the nine league MVPs who played in the Super Bowl and lost in a row. That streak was started by Tom Brady beating Kurt Warner. In Brady's first.

Unbelievably, Brady in his three MVP seasons, he never either made the Super Bowl or won the Super Bowl. Not even he could break up that streak. He started the streak. He also kept it going when he beat Matt Ryan coming from behind. Beat Patrick Mahomes in the AFC Championship game.

Correct. Well, he prevented Mahomes even getting the Super Bowl. I'm just talking about making the Super Bowl and preventing somebody else who won the league MVP from winning. Mahomes ended that streak last night and he did it with his by far best Super Bowl performance to date. And maybe this is the way it's going to go for him forever more in the big game.

It's possible he can have an off game if he makes it back, which he will. We all know. Yeah, we don't know.

We don't know, man. He will make it back. Rich, you said the same thing about Aaron Rodgers.

He will make it. And Brady went 10 years without making it. He's better than Aaron Rodgers. And I just said those words. I'm not disagreeing with you. I'm just saying. He's better than Aaron Rodgers. You never know. Reid's better than McCarthy. The team around him is better than the team that was around Rodgers.

He's making it back. I feel I feel very comfortable in making those statements. You would bet your children's college fund on it? Oh, you know what? I mean, that's an absurd way to put it. I mean, would you bet your life on it? Of course not. I mean, because it's still a variable. I'm just feeling very confident about it.

You could say that about anything I say into this microphone, TJ. But I mean, in all honesty, this guy last night with that performance in that game against an opponent that was outstanding and against a kid younger than him who was lion hearted like him showing up in that game playing like Jalen Hurts played. And he played the way that he played. In the first Super Bowl. If we believe Brady's retired for good in the first Super Bowl when Tom Brady's gone. Last year, as we know, he didn't play in the Super Bowl last year was technically the first Super Bowl with Tom Brady gone, but I don't think we really believed it or felt like we feel right now about Brady is retired for good.

The numbers are now fixed that he's chasing. And with Brady officially gone, it's now his world. He's the quarterback.

That's it. Interestingly enough, three weeks ago, he gets hurt against the Jacksonville Jaguars. They make it to the AFC Championship game. The Bengals are all chesty calling it Burrowwood, Burrowhead.

And it's interesting. Everybody thought like it's Burrow's time to take it over. And who stepped up with a gimpy ankle and still took his team to the Super Bowl and just won it on that gimpy ankle? By the way, with a 26 yard run. To put his team in the red zone for the eventual game winning field goal.

You have to play the game. Patrick Mahomes. That was unbelievable. I couldn't believe he kept running and at one point he was running away. It was like, how are they not catching him? From the Eagles.

No, his ankle wasn't really hurt. Doing that, these are the moments despite the New England bitterness. Okay. You've had your moments against Mahomes.

Don't worry. You delayed his ascendancy enough. I love Mahomes. His run, his performance, as I mentioned, put it all together.

What he has done with just a couple weeks ago. A lot of people thinking this is the end of his time being alone, a stride atop the AFC. Even I bought into the whole business of not being an AFC West champion. This is kind of his moving on from Cincinnati moment. When Brady all thought he was done, he's moving on to Cincinnati. This is moving on from Cincinnati moment. And that we will look back and look at this Super Bowl. This Sunday is the watershed moment. I believe.

I've just made a lot of statements that have a lot of variables to it. And in this league where anything can happen, crazier things have happened. But I believe that's what we saw last night.

The best thing too is we're not going to know for another decade or so. We'll see it all play out. And by the way, in the same way that Brady didn't make every Super Bowl, Burrow is going to get him. I think Josh Allen will get him. I think it's entirely possible Justin Herbert could get him once or twice. And that's why he won't have ten Super Bowl wins, one would think. Because this is a very steep AFC. And so Russell Wilson has got, one would think, will be improved with Sean Payton. If Aaron Rodgers shows up in his division. Trevor Lawrence. Trevor. Oh yeah.

Lamar I assume will one day get out of the training room and finish the season. I mean so I'm just looking at last night, calling over reaction or you're gushing about Mahomes again. How could you not though?

How could you not? He is worth gushing over. I was going to say, Super Bowl 57, well that's the first time he played in a huge game. Brady was gone. He became a multiple Super Bowl winner.

He actually became a guy for the first time in, what would you say, a quarter century almost to win a league MVP and the resulting Super Bowl that he played in. Almost a quarter century. Ended that streak. Putting everyone around him in the Hall of Fame and putting his franchise on a dynastic pedestal. This past Sunday.

They are intense. I mean, last night. Last night, hold on, last night, Dak Prescott honored in the stadium as the Walter Payton Man of the Year. You don't have to, in order to win this, not only do you have to be a good guy, you've got to be a great human being. Like every fiber of your being is great. Your heart is great, your soul is great, your essence is great.

You have to be great. And to other people. And you're honored in front of the whole stadium. Biggest support they think we have in here. He got booed. I would expect nothing less out of the Eagles fans. He got booed. They also honor the incoming class of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

They introduce everybody who's there, alive, to be there. Last one, Demarcus Ware. They booed him.

Like I said, no, no. Now, they didn't do Demarcus any favors. They should have, put him on the screen as a Bronco.

Will you please? They're right. They put him on the screen in his full cowboy regalia. It's like waving a red flag in front of these bulls all over the place. Boo.

Eagles fans are like, school on Sunday, no class. But, hey. Gotta respect it though. Gotta respect it. I'm not mad at him. That's a lot of spite in that NFC Eastman. A lot of spite in the NFC Eastman. And they're so passionate.

I'm telling you, there were tears all over the place. But one thing you got, I mean, my gosh. In this league, in this sport. You gotta get the quarterback right. You have to.

This team knows it too. You know, you thought you had the quarterback right and Carson Wentz and then you didn't. Then you didn't. And then suddenly, now you gotta, you've paid the guy too. Don't forget, the Eagles gave him a second contract. And they were wise to do it.

One would think. And the manner in which they did it, they did it early. So they didn't have to overpay in the way that you're seeing other teams overpaying now. But they paid him a lot. And they made their bet on him. And they thought they had the right guy. And they didn't. And so many teams cannot get out of that vortex.

That is an undertow that normally drags you under, right to the bottom of the sea. And then they draft Jalen Hurts. God blessed the Philadelphia Eagles with Jalen Hurts. Did they ever, I'm sorry Cowboy, TJ.

Did they ever. And last night, you know, anybody who thought that this carriage could turn back into a pumpkin. That on the spotlight of the Super Bowl, this kid will just, you know, somehow flinch. He becomes the first guy with two rushing touchdowns and a throwing touchdown in the history of the Super Bowl and he did it before halftime. Come on.

Crazy. And then he makes that terrible mistake where the ball goes down on the ground. Check out the stats on his drive after that. His deep ball to AJ Brown. He threw him open. And AJ Brown was open, as we know he's always open from his Twitter feed. Look at this catch that you're seeing here.

You could see, for those on the radio audience getting goosebumps, just talk about it. He's leaning, he's reaching out for it. It's because Hurts put it in that spot that he reached out for it because nobody on Kansas City would get it. Brown got it.

The throws that he made in the third quarter drive to answer Kansas City's second half opening touchdown. He rolled out to his left against the grain out of trouble. I had a perfect view of it because I was in the end zone behind him and he was moving away from me. I saw he had Goddard open, but just for a little bit put it right on him. Right on him on a third and eight. They almost went three and out. Can you imagine if they went three and out? Then it was third and 13. I thought this is definitely going to wind up being an empty possession for them.

Nah. Hurts put it in a perfect spot on Goddard. Watkins had one in his hands. Deep ball.

Dropped it. Hurts had it on him. He's so freaking good. Jalen Hurts and this offense is going to be so much tougher to stop because he can also run it. I'm so glad I led with the whole business of him throwing because all this nonsense about black quarterbacks. Yeah, you should be running back. You should be receiver.

Get out of here. He's such a good thrower and such a good passer and so smart about where to put it. Doesn't make stupid throws or mistakes like his predecessor. Nate Central. Good one. Hurts, most rushing yards by a quarterback at a Super Bowl.

70. He took down Steve McNair's record. Good guy to have a record to take down when you're talking about quarterbacks.

Former MVP of the league. Co-MVP with Peyton Manning. Hurts is 15 carries, most quarterback at a Super Bowl all time. He had 300 total yards and four total touchdowns.

Come on. Third quarterback all time to have 350 total yards and four total touchdowns. The other two are young in Montana. Jalen Hurts is on a list at Super Bowl with a young in Montana. And in terms of the only quarterbacks in the Super Bowl in the last 25 seasons to have 100 or better passer rating and four more total touchdowns in the Super Bowl. Tom Brady's the other one.

Brady needed Malcolm Butler in that stadium to help him win it in that Super Bowl. First player all time to have 300 pass yards, 60 or more rush yards and 100 better passer rating in a Super Bowl. The only other guy in the history of the Super Bowl with more rushing touchdowns than him is nobody.

He tied the all time record for most rushing touchdowns in a single Super Bowl. Terrell Davis and Jalen Hurts are on a list. He's on a list. He made a list last night in Super Bowl history with Terrell Davis and young in Montana. Come on.

That's some good company. And also Brown. And how good is Devante Smith? When he got drafted, just like, OK, he won a Heisman Trophy for Alabama.

We got it. But he's so little. He's so little. He's so little. He was, right?

That was a conversation. He's thin. Who's taller than him? He's still so little.

Yeah. Boy, can he get behind the defense and make catches and AJ Brown to boot. I really hope Kelcey sticks around. Because in Sirianni, I think he flipped the bird at the Chiefs right before halftime. It was 21-14. He did? Yeah, Hurts had to tell him, like, put your hand down, man. I mean, he's feeling it. I love his passion, though, clearly.

I mean, him during the national anthem was just beautiful. This is my way of saying you're good. You got it. And you got a GM who knows how to make it work, and he's going to keep it. He's a guy who's like, OK, let's get Hassan Redick. Let's get AJ Brown. Let's get Chauncey Gardner-Johnson.

Oh, OK, James Bradbury. I know he was involved in that holding penalty. He was terrific all year. Let's get him. Let's get Slay when we can get him from Detroit. Slay.

Let's go draft every Georgia Bulldog we can. Yeah, right. Right. Come on.

OK. You're good. I think what bothers me the most, Rich, is I thought I'd come in today all happy that the Eagles lost and wanted to talk trash. And for whatever reason, I don't feel that. Like, I almost feel like you just ran out of time, and that's the reason you lost the game. I want to, like, be happy at the Eagles' loss, and I don't feel it because they played so well. And you know why? Because Jalen Hurts is so damn likable.

Yeah, that's exactly it. Our buddy Geo, the podcaster, was there. The NFL, good for you. Did you make that happen for him? I don't. The NFL got him a press credential. He asked Jalen, his final question of his media availability, great question is, what are you going to take out of this? This was his response. How you doing, man? I'm doing good. How are you?

I never met you in person. Yeah. What is one lesson that you learned from this game that you'll take on to the next? Man, I think you want to cherish these moments. You want to cherish these moments with the people that you've come so far with, you know, your family, your loved ones, your teammates, your peers, everyone that you do it with and do it for. And I'm so proud of this team. I will say I'm so proud of this team for everything that we've been able to overcome. Obviously, we had a big-time goal in the end that we wanted to accomplish, and we came up short. I think the beautiful part about it is everyone experiences different pains.

Everyone experiences different agonies of life, but you decide if you want to learn from it. You decide if you want to use that to be a teachable moment, and I know what I'll do. Come on. In the middle of all that, too, he sees Gio.

He smiles at him and says, great to meet you in person. Honestly, what a keeper. What a winner. So headline, Philadelphia, you're good. Yeah, unfortunately.

Unfortunately. You're good. Kathy, in Philadelphia, back here on the Rich Eisen Show. Are you doing all right, Kathy?

You're good? Well, as you know, as a Bill's fan, it's been hockey season for me for the last couple of weeks, so I'm fine. While I like to see my friends happy, I consider TJ a friend, so he's happy in some ways. So that's good enough for me. Kathy, I wish I was more happy, like I just got done saying. I want to be happy at the Eagles loss, but I just don't feel joy, man. That's a good football team.

We'll go with content then for now. Well done. You're always such a good wordsmith, Kathy. I try. I learned from you. Thank you. I learned from watching you.

So I have two quick things. First, a little pushback on what Mike Pereira said earlier in the show about, well, it's a penalty, so you got to call it regardless of when it is. And I understand that. However, plays like that happen all throughout the game. If you call that penalty in the first quarter, that sets the tone and lets the player on the field know, okay, I'm not going to get away with this.

When you let it go all game and then call it in the last two minutes, that's when everybody's like, okay, hold on. That's the source of the, quote, unquote, controversy. So that's with that. Having no skin in the game, not caring really who won either way.

That's why so many people are up in arms. But since we are talking about officiating, Rich, I come to you, the newly appointed acting VP of Officials, as I understand from Mike Pereira. And I understand that you're poised to make RES Consulting the role analyst consigliere for the competition committee.

It's a subsidiary of the consulting firm, yes. Asterisk. Got it. The thing that I would like to focus on is the penalty that's the easiest to fix, that is the most bewildering, as Wiser doesn't get called more often, and I was actually shocked it got called yesterday, the lay of game. And I know you've had officials come onto the show before and say, well, what happened is the clock goes down to zero, and then they look to see if the ball is snapped, and then they look again to see if the clock is, and it takes two or three seconds to determine whether or not it was the lay of game. When everybody watching sees the big clock down to zero, and the ball hasn't been snapped. That's a quality of life thing, where the game extends far longer than it should because you're adding four or five seconds each time. Right. And this is something that the average fan who, you know, doesn't understand that the official is looking at his clock and then looking at this and then looking at that and then calling his mom to ask if it's okay to throw the flag.

I know. The issue with that, Kathy, is that, you know, if we do like, say, have a buzzer like the NBA has go off, and the backboard lights up so you know when the shot clock is up, and you could do the same thing with the play clock, is that we still can't see is the ball out of the center's hands and in the quarterback's hands. Do you suddenly make it like the quarterback must have full possession of the ball to make it not a delay of game? And if a buzzer goes off or something lights up, everybody else might stop playing, whereas in the NBA, they don't stop playing. They just keep playing.

And thanks for the call, Kathy. I don't know what the fix on that is, and I don't think they're ever going to care to fix it. They don't care. They're not going to fix that. That's not what's going to be fixed. As you know, what needs to be fixed in the NFL is to use Scott Judge judiciously to get rid of, thank goodness there weren't any roughing the passer penalties last night. There weren't any roughing penalties last night where, you know, somebody actually does perform a terrific tackle and they think it's helmet to helmet and they throw a flag.

None of that happened last night, so let's be thankful for that. Dave in Nashville, Tennessee. You're here on the Rich Johnson Show. What's up, Dave? Hey, how are you?

I'm good. You know who you were watching last night in the Super Bowl? You were watching who Lamar Jackson was supposed to be. I mean, Dylan's setting the Eagles up for a very nice, nice future. I like the kid. What a take.

Hard not to like. What a take. Interesting that, I mean, Lamar was that for a season. He just hasn't finished. He hasn't finished, but yes, Jalen Hurts, what you're saying, and thanks for the call. What an interesting take that is right there. I like it. Do you agree with it? I kind of do. I can see where he's coming from.

What he's coming from, I think what he's coming from is- Also too rich, the Ravens don't have Devante Smith or A.J. Brown. Bingo.

Bingo. They have Dallas Scott. Mark Andrews is, you know, one of the top tight ends of the league.

Correct. Probably the second best tight end. They don't have that outside deep threat that we saw that Hurts take advantage of this year. And anybody, Steve Smith will tell you, anybody will tell you, well, they're not going to get, like A.J. Brown didn't want to get traded to Baltimore. And Devante Smith wouldn't want to get drafted to Baltimore because receivers in this offense aren't thrown to in that regard, but Lamar- But that had to do with Greg Roman and the system that they decided to run there. Lamar had an MVP season in that system.

He had, it happened. And didn't win a playoff game that year though, right? Well, that's- So- Is that on Lamar? Or is it, I just don't remember the year where he was the MVP and he lost?

I don't know. Mahomes, the Chiefs were supposed to be West End this year. Mahomes was MVP and they just won the Super Bowl. So yeah, I mean, it kind of is on Lamar. And what he's saying is like for a running throwing quarterback, for a quarterback who's got a deep ball and has, you know, who's got a terrific arm, but also a lethal run game that not only must be respected, but does lead to a passing game to be more open because you have to worry about this guy running on you. And it also opens up the run game to see Hertz perform that way in a Super Bowl at every level where he's joining a list for rushing touchdowns with Terrell Davis and then passing total yards and passer rating with Young in Montana in the same game, that that's what the Ravens hope Lamar can be. But Lamar hasn't finished two years in a row, in a row. And Hertz got hurt in his shoulder, not his legs.

And even with that hurt shoulder- Throwing bombs all night. Oh my God. And not just deep balls, but accurate. Accurate.

Yeah. Dropping dimes. Deep balls. So what are you, if you're the Ravens trying to look for a new offensive coordinator, do you just take someone from the Philadelphia mindset and say, go to work? Give them a deep threat, man.

What, do you want to do that? Because what's Philly's doing right now? Don't you think the Ravens can do that? They just need the weapons outside. Right.

They kind of need to change their philosophy from what they've done the last few years. Run, run, run, run. So run heavy. What about the Eagles?

Yeah. But the Eagles throw deep. They throw deep. I mean, AJ Brown broke the Eagles record for receiving yards this year. Like they throw the deep ball. Devante Smith, did he have a hundred catches?

That was, felt like it. Devante Smith last night had a hell of a night. Also Richie- I got this number here. Hold on a second. He's the first player to ever have a hundred or more receiving yards in both the college football national championship game and the Super Bowl.

Whoa. He's the third player in the Eagles franchise history to have a hundred or more yards in the Super Bowl. Tio and Corey Clement.

How about that? AJ Brown and Devante Smith, just the ninth pair of teammates in Super Bowl history to have 90 or more receiving yards in the Super Bowl. Devante Smith had 95 catches this year, 1200 here. Dude. Well, Ravens got to get those guys for Lamar. Yeah, got to get those guys. But they had to change the scheme a little bit.

It's a little more, throw in the deep ball, it's a little more less run heavy. Take a break.

That is the only way that I'm ever able to accomplish anything. Rolling Stone music now, wherever you listen. Back here on the Rich Eisen Show radio network. Let's take some more phone calls.

Love that we got all these calls here. Let's go to Sideline Mike in Atlanta. What's up, Sideline Mike? How you doing, Sideline Mike? Uh oh. He's up. You there, Sideline Mike? Uh oh.

I'm going to put him back on. He's here. Adam and Martha's Vineyard. Hey. Oh. Chris. Hey.

Out there in the Atlantic Ocean. What's up, Adam? What's up, buddy? How you doing, bud? Listen, you took a lot of my thunder about Jay Hurst.

What the? I mean, this dude threw some dimes. He didn't even play. I mean, they pulled him from the National Championship. Even after winning one, because he wasn't accurate enough, I was in the end zone. He threw ball after ball. I mean, you know, he got some, you know, he threw it up there a few times and he's got great receivers, but he threw some balls, man.

He was crazy. He's a player. He's a player. He's a player. You know? And he has taken...

I just... Listen, my other question is, what do you think is they're going to do about the scrum? You know, where you have everybody around you and you dive for a yard and they push you from the back. I don't know how many pushing from the back they got going on right now, but they're the greatest quarterback sneak team ever.

Hurts is up there with Brady on that front, too, by the way. They've adopted a rugby philosophy when it comes to that. Right. About the scrum. Yeah, they got the... They get in this formation. They get behind him and he's a...I don't know. It's impossible to stop.

It is impossible to stop. And apparently... You get two yards on it every time. The league changed the rules a few years ago, so you can't technically pull a guy, but you can push him.

Adam, as part of RES Consulting, as we are trying to get ourselves a seat inside the competition committee of the National Football League, we will take this under advisement and place it up the flagpole. Well, it's just because he was stopped, but he gets pushed from the back. Yeah, the old bush push, huh?

The old push. Listen, you did a great job on the pregame. Attaboy. Thank you. You can't talk about it, but I miss her. I love her. Yeah, me too. And I hope to stay up and get out knowing you back. You and me both, Adam. But I miss you both. You and me both.

Thanks, Adam. Greatly appreciate it. You bet.

I want to see Michael Irvin back on the end of my set, pronto. I honestly don't know what's going on. Absolutely. Rich, you know, earlier you spoke about Lamar Jackson and him losing that playoff game.

I went back and just took a look real quick. You know, they lost to Tennessee, 28-12. Yes. He's 31 of 59 for 365 yards, one touchdown, two picks, and he also rushed for 143 yards.

I mean, he got busy that game. Let's take Lonnie's call, our friend in Los Angeles. What's up, Lonnie? Oh, great, great job. I mean, Rich, you're the top of the top, baby, so I'll let you know.

Thank you. I think Patrick Mahomes may be the first quarterback that doesn't call his own plays, that hasn't played against Lawrence Taylor or Dick Buckus to make my top 10. Look at you. I think you don't think he calls. I know he gets the call, but I think he's got a lot of leeway. I mean, in the Super Bowl that they beat the 49ers, he's the one in timeout saying, let's run wasps.

He's got time to run wasps, meaning did the coaching staff feel that his protection would hold up for a route that would take a while to run? I think he's got a considerable stake in what he's calling, but I totally understand that you as an old school guy appreciate him. So I like that boy.

He got potential. Come on. We're good. We're good. Thanks for the call.

He's not wrong by the way. I think Mahomes is going places. Sideline, Mike, you want to try one more time? Let's try. Let's try. Sideline, Mike, you there?

Mike, you on the air? I apologize, gentlemen. You got to understand, I'm in the restaurant business. Everybody was blown out from the Super Bowl.

We're trying to get the paper goods and to-go items back in stock. Gentlemen, I will say this. Yes, sir. And Rich, I'm glad you saw Jalen Hurst pull the coach's hand down when he was flipping the bird.

I'm like, Nick, what are you doing, man? Relax. Yeah.

So Jalen Hurst has improved more than any other quarterback from when he got yanked when Tua came in and threw that buck. Let me tell you something, I have nightmares about that little number six for Philadelphia. You know what he did to us, Rich? I do. You know what he did? I know. You know what he did? Mm-hmm.

So at the end of the day, man, all I can tell you is this. All them quarterbacks you named, it's going to take them down. Justin Herbert, DJ, we know who his offensive coordinator is, we ain't got to worry about him. Okay. All right. Uh, uh, Mr. Allen, another one who ain't done it yet with no running game, you ain't beating him. Uh, Mr. Massage Stanley, not worried about him.

So at the end of the day, I told Adam, mark the tape. When Richard said he might not win 10, all them other guys you talking about, hey brother, they got issues. Okay. And I'm not worried about them.

The only guy I'm worried about is that brother from Athens, Ohio named Joe. I'm with you. No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, but I'm telling you Burrow and my homes go give us some quality football for the next five or six years.

More than that. Thanks for the call. It's going to be the, it's going to be, you know, the, the Manning Brady of, of our generation, you know, and then every now and then, as you remember, you know, Flacco would peak in there and big Ben obviously had a big say.

I mean, my homes is on the list. Let me get this. If I can pull it up right away here. Um, there it is. Youngest quarterbacks to win multiple super bowls. You know, the youngest all time is don't have to guess too hard, Tom Brady, correct. Um, by about a hundred and some odd days before Ben Roethlisberger, he's too on the list. I would not have guessed that, uh, number three on the list, Aikman.

Oh my God. Number four on the list, Bradshaw, 10 days younger than my homes was last night. Oh, so, so, you know, I mean, Josh Allen will raise his hands, maybe as the Roethlisberger of this, or maybe he'll be the Manning of it and we'll, we'll have three in, four in, five in. It's going to be amazing. I can't see Josh Allen not winning a super bowl.

Neither can I. He's that good. Get him a run game though. Absolutely. I think it's time for our annual tradition the day after the super bowl.

This is great. Which is taking a look at the home schedule of the Lombardi Hoister from the night before. I got it. To try and pick who the NFL, first blush, would like to have in Kansas City for the trophy presentation in front of the fans, I guess.

And of course the banner raise. So what do you got over there? I know Philadelphia is one of them, isn't it? Okay. So they have the, obviously they're division opponents, Chargers, Broncos, and I think you have to include the Raiders as a possible if they get Aaron Rodgers. To be there? To open?

Yeah. If they get Aaron Rodgers. I could see where it is already. They play in the, they play the AFC East this year, so they have the Bills and Dolphins at home. They also have the Bears at home and the Lions at home. And they also have the Bengals and Eagles at home. I think they're not going to have a Super Bowl rematch right off the bat. I agree with you.

I don't think so. But to me, the winner is either, it's obvious, and I don't think they're going to have a division game either. It's obvious. It's going to be Cincinnati or Buffalo, and it just depends on what their flavor is. Buffalo opened the year last year out here in LA, so I don't think they're going to do that two years in a row. So it'll be Cincinnati. Could do Miami. It's certainly a really fun game, two is healthy, that offense is dynamic. I'm just saying, if Aaron Rodgers goes to the Raiders, keep an eye on the Raiders. Cincinnati at Kansas City, I'd want to see that again.

And AF, they do championship game rematches quite a bit right off the bat. It's done before. It's been done before.

Put that up one more time. Do you mind, Hoskins? I mean, what a home schedule. That's right.

That's a lot. Because Justin Fields is walking in, and the Lions, is this the toughest home schedule? That's a tough home schedule. Their nine home games are their division opponents, Cincinnati, Buffalo, Miami, Chicago, Detroit, and Philadelphia. All due respect to the Bears, you can make the case eight out of the nine could be playoff teams next year.

Yeah, it's true. I don't think anyone's expecting the Bears to make the playoffs. Well, the Bears have, excuse me, the Bears have a ton of cap space. The Bears are set up to be one of the most improved teams of 2023. You're a very positive person.

I am. I just don't think the Bears are going to make the playoffs, but eight out of nine on that list could definitely make the playoffs. Well, now, that looks tough. It is tough. But hey, good on them. They don't have to go to Cincinnati or Buffalo. They got to have them there. That's pretty good. Pretty sure I'm painting him with Russ. I think they should pass.

Wait a minute. Does that mean they have to go to Green Bay? They have a real hard schedule. They got to go to Green Bay?

They got to go to Minnesota? At Green Bay, at Minnesota, at the Jets, at the Pats, at the Jags next year. So basically, wait a minute.

Hold on a minute. They've got the Packers, Raiders, and Jets on their schedule. They're playing Aaron Rodgers next year. They're playing Aaron Rodgers. They're playing Aaron Rodgers next year. Unless they're playing in the complete dark.

Then they're definitely playing Aaron Rodgers next year. Starting tomorrow. At some point.

Starting tomorrow. I assume. Is he going to turn off the lights as he's on the air with Pat?

I think you have to go. It's not in his own house. He could zoom in from the room. It's not in his own house. No, I know, but he could zoom in from the room, although there's probably no internet connection there.

Probably not. I mean, you guys heard me. Wait a minute.

My cell reception is complete. Come on! Come on! I'm not playing. I'm not playing. I'm not doing it. You're not going.

I'm not going here. You love Lala Kent on Vanderpump Rules. Now get to know her on Give Them Lala.

With her assistant Jess. L.A., it can become suffocating. Did something happen where you felt like I have to get out of here or do you just think it just happens sometimes? I think it just happens, but also just everything going on in my personal life. I want to get on this mic and be like, this is what I've been dealing with for 14 months. Give Them Lala wherever you listen.
