Rich and the guys react to reports that free agent WR DeAndre Hopkins is meeting with the Tennessee Titans, and debate if Buffalo Bills fans should be worried about the “Madden Curse” with QB Josh Allen on the Madden 24 cover this year.

Terry Crews joins Rich in-studio to discuss the new season of ‘America’s Got Talent,’ how he made the transition from NFL linebacker to finding success in the entertainment realm, how he reacted to getting to stare down Denzel Washington in that classic “King Kong” scene in ‘Training Day,’ and why the way the NFL handled the Damar Hamlin situation showed him that the league has changed for the better, and why Washington Commanders OC Eric Bieniemy deserves to be an NFL head coach.

What happened today, Alan?

Absolute thunderbolt. This is the Rich Eisen Show. The Live Tour just merged with the PGA Tour.

It stinks. Live from the Rich Eisen Show studio in Los Angeles. Are we serious? The Live Tour and the PGA Tour are merging.

How in the hell does that work? Earlier on the show, CNBC journalist David Faber, Pro Football Hall of Famer Terrell Davis, actor Patty Considine. Coming up, host of NBC's America's Got Talent, Terry Crews. And now, it's Rich Eisen.

Ah, yes. Our number three of the Rich Eisen Show is on the air. What a show we've already had. David Faber, the CNBC reporter who broke the news of the Live and PGA Tour merger on Tuesday, was our first guest here on this Wednesday show, getting ready for game three of the NBA Finals tonight. An interesting comment from Steve Kerr about the Miami Heat, which we'll get to shortly.

In this hour, we just said goodbye to the actor Patty Considine, who plays King Viserys Targaryen in House of the Dragon on Max, which you can see right here on Roku. And I had a very nice chat, just a quick brief chat. Went back and said hello to one of our favorite guests. And it's been a few years since he was on this program. And I love this guy. And first of all, you can't help but love anybody that you call a fake Jonas Brothers Olympics with, as I did with Terry Crews, who's about to join us in advance of the latest season of America's Got Talent, the hit show on NBC that he hosts that airs Tuesday, season 18.

My gosh, 18 years. You can catch that on Peacock, available here on Roku. We're here free every single day on the Roku channel. Available on all Roku devices, like Samsung Smart TVs. We're available on Amazon Fire TV, the Roku app, and the

Free o charge. So some interesting news. We're hanging on any word about DeAndre Hopkins. I know you are Dallas Cowboy fan. Yeah. I know you are New England Patriot fan.

I'm not getting my hopes up, but I'm getting mine up because you're here. Like, you know, he's not the same anymore, right? Right. You see those pushbacks that, yeah, the anonymous sources saying he can't run as well. He's not the same.

It's pretty good to me. I think that comes from people who don't want him going to certain teams. So maybe he missed the first six games last year, but then, and then balled out, but that wasn't his fault. Well, there hasn't been much other than, you know, his, his emojis that he sent out and there hasn't been much about it in terms of a resolution.

Let's see if you tweeted it. And, uh, Tom Pelissero did, who by the way, is going to sit in this chair three times, uh, three times next week as I head off with Susan, the kids on a vacation. Tommy P, but not, he's going to Tennessee to visit a little visit.

Oh, a little visit. See, everybody thinks he and Vrables from the Belicheck coaching tree. He's from the, uh, bill O'Brien coaching tree.

He was on the staff in Houston. Now Vrables team gets the first visit with Hopkins in the five time pro bowl released by Arizona last month. So, you know, boy, do they need receivers there. You take a look at their receiving roster. Chris, you want to call up the Tennessee Titans depth chart because you got Ryan Tannehill and if Ryan Tannehill doesn't answer the bell, you've got two green quarterbacks, one less green than the other.

Although you, you saw last year with Malik Willis struggling Trey Burke where they had, they turned to Josh Dobbs and now you got this wide receiver core isn't a winning any on paper. Well, trail and Burke's as we all know, was the guy that they drafted with the pick that they sent to Philadelphia for AJ Brown and he's got the same height, weight comp. And as I was saying in the draft on that night, like that's great if you got the same height, weight, speed comp, but you better have the rest of it. Yeah.

By the way, I have the same height, weight comps as a lot of NFL players. You know what I mean? We're not the same. So you kind of better, you know, bring the rest of the game. There's, there's a comp and then there's the actual genuine article. And the fact that AJ Brown went somewhere else as we all know, as part of the reason why the general manager, John Robbins is not there anymore.

Can we say Richard's a comp and then there's a coincidence? Very good. I like it. What do you got for the rest of the room over there?

Oh, well, yeah. Tray Winberg's Nick Westbrook, Akina, Kine, Kyle Phillips. Those are your starters. I mean, I couldn't pick Kyle Phillips out of a lineup. Chris Moore, Racy, McMath and Colton Dowell backups.

Yeah. DeAndre Hopkins. They could use him. Except he wanted more or less an elite quarterback is what he was saying. And I don't know if anybody caught the cops on Tannehill cabin, but you wouldn't when you think elite quarterback, I don't know who's going to be. Years ago, he had that seat that everybody wants now in the AFC, that fourth seat in the final four of the conference with Burrow, Mahomes and Allen sitting in the other three seats as we expect them to do again this year for a third straight year, two years. It was Tannehill and he had the one seed at that table. We all know that Burrow, despite getting sacked 9 million times, came out with a W with Tannehill not converting on a fourth and an inch, handing it off to Henry and then throwing an interception to seal it.

And Trevor Lawrence had the seat last year. So we'll see what they want to pay him because it doesn't appear that if you're going ring shopping, Tennessee is the spot to go get a ring. Super Bowl ring, obviously, as we know, Nash Vegas is the bachelorette party capital of the world. So rings have already been brought, you know, Broadway. I'm talking about Super Bowl rings. And you're saying Tennessee is the place to go? It is not the place to go shopping for a Super Bowl ring.

No, that is not the place you want to go ring shopping. Hasn't thrown for 4000 yards since 2015. Everyone caps on Tannehill.

He runs too, man. You can win with Ryan Tannehill. The question is, can you win a championship with Ryan Tannehill? And with that roster, which is why everybody thinks Derrick Henry is going to wind up going somewhere else, including Akbar Bajab, you know, of American Ninja Warrior fame.

That was one of my favorite segments of last week, by the way. Speaking of Josh Allen, for those who want to dethrone him in the American Football Conference Eastern Division, that would include the Jets, the Dolphins and what's that fourth team? I don't know. Who's that fourth? I mean, again, you know, obviously it's the Patriots. That's right. Obviously it's the Patriots.

Language matters, people. Again, we Michigan guys sometimes as we're walking through the division sometimes forget who that fourth team is, you know. Obviously we Michigan guys. Well, Brady is a Michigan man. I am too. Go blue. Hashtag it.

No, I get it. Well, if you believe in the old Jobu's rum, that to be messed with type stuff in the world of sports, you believe there's some mojo in the world and you try to get the good one and avoid the bad one. And this piece of news might be a little disturbing to Buffalo Bills fans. Josh Allen's on the cover of Madden. Oh, it's not all bad. It's not all bad. I mean, Brady and Mahomes were on the cover a couple of years ago themselves, and I don't think either of them got cursed. He's very bad.

Still Jobu's rum. So Josh Allen's on the cover of Madden. He's very excited. He calls it a childhood dream come true. I thought it was gonna be Jaylen Hurts. I'll be honest with you. It's Josh Allen. Jaylen Hurts at home being like, Oh, yeah, I believe in that stuff.

Do you really believe? By the way, I'm asking the guy who's who's the king of the tinfoil hat NBA refereeing world. We've been trying to fill morning.

We've been trying to game. Who's reffing Game three tonight? You want to go down the list? Oh, my God. This guy.

I don't. Eddie George. Oh, one got hurt.

Dante Culpepper. Oh, two got hurt. Marshall Falk. Oh, three got hurt. Michael Vick.

Remember what happened? Ray Lewis got hurt. They hear Donovan McNabb ended up stinking.

Sean Alexander. Vince Young read far away. Come on. Yeah, but that was early when we knew this curse was in the league. I don't think that it is so much anymore. That was a long time ago.

Yeah, we're way a long time. Antonio Antonio Brown on the cover. Tell Josh Allen to go get a shine box that work out. Well, what did they be doing 18? That's the question.

19 into 20. I mean, he was on the bucket. Come on now. I don't believe in this stuff. Do you believe in curses? I did in the Madden curse for a while. This curse was legit, like eight in a row.

But at some point they get broken. The Red Sox have won, right? The Cubs won Cubs won curses of the goats and the the Bambino. Yeah, but look, respectively. I don't know.

John Madden was on the cover, and then he passed away a few years later. What is your mouth function? What is your mouth function? Seriously? What are you talking about? That was the thing that happened, dude.

This guy over there. How am I supposed to respond from that? I don't know that you can't. You can't respond. Do I do like the do I? Do I now do like the news anchor? Well, let's just leave it there and moving, moving on, moving on, moving on.

But you know, you're not a real sport over there, pal. When you say stuff like that, I don't believe in it. That's so stupid.

I mean, I'll do respect. I still think it's the Bills division to win or lose. Don't you agree?

Well, we'll find out. Don't you agree? Because if the Bills go south, then we'll know why. Excuse me.

Do you not agree? Here's the thing with the Buffalo Bills. I did getting Von Miller back and tell how far they went, what they have done with Dalton Kincaid to go draft this tight end from Utah, who is going to, along with their running back situation, they stole from my team. They're going to go ahead and solve the Josh Allen needing to do too much problem from the 20 yard line in called the red zone or teams call the green zone because it's all about making cash, cashing it in green light. We were talking about cars earlier, Rich. Uh huh. The Bills seem like that really awesome car you get and you drive it around for like 20 miles and then it gets a flat tire.

Then you fix the flat tire and it drives around a little bit and then the check engine light comes on and then you get that looked at and then you drive around a little bit and then it's like and then it's got a cough in the back like I need this team to break through and get to the other side before I can be like, yes, Bills gung ho. You're the team to beat in the NFL. Oh, I don't think that the team to beat in the NFL is the Kansas City Chiefs. They're the defending champs and they're the ones with so many returning parts that you're saying this is like year three year four now with all this.

I got again in the division. Do you believe it is theirs to win and defend or lose? You think it's your team? I don't. I just said it's the Bills. The 53 year old cheerleader just said that. Be consistent. You don't want Aaron Rodgers.

Now you're excited to have him. I never said you're cheerleading, but now it's not their division to win. So which is it? Excuse me. Which is it? You want eight wins?

I'll tell you what it is. I know it's tough for you to see nuance when it's staring you right in the face. Well, obviously, right? That's the key word when we talk about the AFCs, obviously. I'm saying to you, to your face, I'm excited about the Jets prospects. I was concerned about Aaron Rodgers being able to handle the New York media, which is now so far in the middle of this honeymoon kid gloving the situation.

No one's asked him a real question. And so we will see, you know, as Mad Dog said on first take today, how is how is Rodgers's vision when Lazard was open over the middle against San Francisco? How is his vision against Tom Brady? You know, again, in the NFC championship game? Yes, I am seeing all that.

And he is a 39 year old with a calf muscle that tweaked already in May. I am as always consistent saying there's reality and there's the alternative and the reality of the Jets having Rodgers way better than the alternative of not. I'm very happy that the Jets have him and I'm very bullish on their 2023 season. That said, the Bills are the team to beat in the division. They're the defending champs. They're the ones that rule the roost. They're the ones that have a Patriot running back now. And Damian Harris, who I think along with James Cook and Latavious Murray and Dalton Kincaid, their problem on offense was the red zone.

I believe they have solved it or come up with a plan to solve it. Bills have the third best Super Bowl odds right now. I think that's fair. OK, how tough was that?

You had to come at me. I don't understand that. Well, obviously it's my 20th wedding anniversary.

It's a beautiful day. It doesn't mean anything to me. I mean, I understand that for you. What do you say, TJ? You guys are the Bills the team to beat in the AFC East. I thought so until this men thing.

No, I'm not sure. He believes in curses to have better Super Bowl odds than the Jets right now. But why wouldn't we? Why would you? Why would you? Why would we?

Why would you? Because they're the Dallas Cowboys. That's why. And the Jets haven't made the playoffs in the longest time.

To the point where they and the Buffalo Sabres are currently neck and neck for the longest drought and major professional North American sports. So. Yeah, sure. Why not? That's why.

That's why. Lions have better odds than dolphins. All the lines are starting the season, aren't they? In Kansas City.

But why haven't we heard? Bottom line is the Bills are the team to beat in the AFC East. And I've established that and I'm being consistent and I'm not a cheerleader. So there's that. Let's bring out Terry Crews, please. Terry Crews is here.

Season 18 of America's Got Talent. Wow. Oh, look at Terry's hops.

Terry Crews will be joining us live in studio next on the Rich Eisen Show. Men, do you get distracted during the day thinking about your underarms sweating, itching or emitting an odor?

Buy new and improved dove men plus care antiperspirant wherever personal care products are sold. Get an inside look at Hollywood with Michael Rosenbaum, actress Kristin Ritter. Your parents let you travel by yourself was a different time. They just put you on a train. As a 15 year old girl, you went to New York.

I went on a bus and I did get picked up at Port Authority. They thought I was a runaway. What would they do?

They'd detain you and get people on the phone and then they finally let you go to your modeling job. How many times did it happen? Once or twice. It just seems like it wouldn't happen. It happens.

Yeah. Inside of you with Michael Rosenbaum wherever you listen. Terry Crews here on the Rich Eisen Show. America's Got Talent airs Tuesdays at 8 Eastern on NBC. Season 18 premiered last week.

You can watch it on Peacock, which is available right here on Roku and Terry Crews back here on the program. And we just showed for our radio audience a wild clip of two guys, one guy climbing a ladder with another guy balanced on his head, head to head. When I see stuff like that, I'm wondering to myself, how do they learn they have this talent? Right. First of all, they're from places that have no phones.

Okay. Because you need a level of concentration and focus. Can you imagine you get a TikTok ding and it's like, ah, you never get good at something like that. You know what I mean? Oh man, hold on.

I'll be right there. Just wait one second. That's the thing.

Americans were too distracted to do things that good. You know what I mean? You got to have no wifi at all where you're totally bored and you're just sitting around saying, you know what, I'm going to climb this ladder. And the friend's like, you know what, I'm going to go on top of your head with my head. Let's see how far you can go.

I'll be upside down and you be right side up and let's go up the ladder. And it's funny. I asked you a question about, do you know what's coming when you're on the air? And I feel foolish asking that question because I get that when I'm like, say hosting an NFL draft, do you, are you told the draft picks before they're on the air? And we're like, no, because we want our natural reaction to be on camera. So the person at home who has a similar reaction feels a connection to those who are hosting it or judging it on the air. And that's what's a beautiful thing of your show.

No, it is, is lovely. And I can't wait till we go live. You know, first of all, you know, being a former ballplayer, you know, my time in NFL, I loved the fact that anything can happen and, you know, actually doing the live shows, we're going to do those in August. That really has supplanted my NFL thing, you know, cause it's like the ball can go anywhere and you see anything happening. And it's just, it's the mistakes that people love. If everything goes perfect, it's kind of boring.

Of course. And so let's talk about that a little bit here, your NFL career, because it's kind of forgotten, to be honest with you, Terry. And it's not because you didn't achieve anything in the NFL. You played for several years.

It's because of how successful you've become in your endeavor. Who was your, you were an 11th round pick out of Western Michigan by the Los Angeles Rams in their first go round. So where were you on a draft day and who'd you get a phone call from?

First of all, I got to tell you, uh, I was very arrogant as a kid and I had a big party. Um, and I'm like, I'm going to get drafted probably like fourth round, third round. And then, then first, second, third round, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh. All of a sudden everybody goes home. I'm sitting there like, wait a minute, what just happened?

We go into the next day and it's like 3 PM the next day. I'm like, I didn't get drafted. What the, Hey man, this is over. And my wife was like, Hey, put your, get your chin up.

It doesn't matter what happens if you go in there as a free agent, it doesn't matter. You're going to, you're going to do this. And I was like, yeah, yeah. And I'm wiping tears and I got a phone call and I did not realize that the draft wasn't over. And it was from Ronnie Jones, the linebacker coach for the LA Rams. He's like, we just drafted you in the 11th round. Here I was, I thought it was over. You thought it was toast and it wasn't.

So there I was, I was so happy to even have 11 rounds now. Like of course not. No, it goes to the seventh round and you know, you would have been an undrafted free agent.

Exactly. So who was your coach? Who was the head coach? I was under John Robinson, John Robinson, John Robinson, John Robinson. Oh man, Jim Everett. I was back up to Kevin Green, um, which was, it was an amazing thing. Jackie Slater was sitting there and one of the all time greatest tackles to ever play the game. And humans.

And humans. I mean, just incredible people, man, walking in that locker room. I was just like, oh my God, I get goosebumps thinking about it right now because to imagine, it's like walking into, watching a big giant movie and you're walking in and you're starring in it. And it was incredible, man.

All the personalities. It was really, really fun. Were you teammates of Jim Everett when he went after Jim Rome? Yeah, I was there at that time. I wasn't there at the play, but I remember coming, he coming back in the locker room and it made Jim Rome who he was, you know, Jimmy even says now, like I didn't want to be known for that, but all of a sudden everybody knew who his name was. They were like, he called him Chris Everett and Jim had enough. It was like, you're right. And he came back in the locker room. Nobody even addressed it in the locker room.

I remember everybody was just kind of whispering and looking and Jim came in and it was like, it was different. Wow. Now you did, you played with Seau, right? Junior Seau? Yes. For the Chargers? Yes.

Yes. You were in linebacker room meetings with Junior Seau? Oh my God, man. First of all, he was absolutely incredible, man. I mean, and you know, he owned San Diego.

You got to understand. I mean, he literally grew up just 30 miles away and, you know, went to SC and then came right over there. So it was like, it was his town.

It was his place. But you know, it's kind of an example because this is so wild. You know, for me, I turned 55 this year and you know, it's so many players that were with us that, and I mean, what blows my mind is that there are people who are younger than me that are gone, that are passed away. And I was thinking, this is wild, man.

To be an old football player is kind of rare. It's something to do with the lifestyle, something to do with the way, you know, we think and the whole thing. But I always try to talk to players and let them know that, you know, the game is just one small part of your life. You know what I mean? There's much more to go. The goal is not this.

The goal has to be to live long. You know what I mean? It's kind of like, I heard an adage said one time that there are no old bad pilots. You know what I mean? Think about it. You know what I mean?

All the pilots that are old are good. And you want to be a good pilot with your life. You know what I mean? You want to see the end. I mean, it gets better.

You know what I'm saying? It can get better. And I'm telling you, I'm a true example of this because I'm so thankful. You know, I appreciate my NFL career, but it's always about what was next for me. And, you know, I really appreciate the fact that I had a good family and my wife who always let me know that there was more for me than this.

Well, you know, obviously you have a great family and a great base and a great heart and a great head and great talent, Terry Crews. And so it's so difficult. I've seen it. The NFL Network turns 20 this fall, and I've just seen so many players who get out of the game and are wondering what's next. And, you know, I've had this conversation before and happy to have it again here because I'm just wondering, you must have been, if I'm not mistaken, 27, 26 when you were done. Yeah.

What? How did you get into what you're doing now? And I imagine was it tougher than actually getting into the NFL is to transition to what you're doing now?

Absolutely. I'm going to tell you, when I first moved to L.A., I moved here with my family and the whole thing. And the first job I ever had was sweeping floors. That was the first job.

And where? It was at a place. It was at a temp agency. And it was a place they sent me to factories and they were like, hey, man, you sweep up over here. And they paid me literally at the end of the day.

It was the kind of agency that they paid you just daily. But I was that broke. I was that desperate.

But also I was that willing. You know, you have to get to a point where you are willing to start over from the bottom. And this is the problem I've seen with tons of superstar athletes, because you're coming into a place and everything's different and they're not willing to start at the bottom. I'm not saying you have to sweep floors, but you do have to have to humble yourself in order to learn. It's the same thing with martial arts. You have to bow to your teacher, you know, and a lot of guys want to walk in and be like, I'm the man and I own this place.

And they find it really difficult because you're going to get resistance in every way. So then what was your break for movies, TVs or whatever? You know, I auditioned. I got invited to an audition because I was doing, you know, broke. I went for it simply because I was invited and my wife was like, you know what?

You got nothing else. You might as well try it. And I auditioned for a show called Battle Dome, which was American Gladiators on steroids.

You can look at it on YouTube right now. I played this really larger than life character named T-Money. It's like wrestling meets a game show. And I got it. Like I got the job. And all of a sudden I'm an actor. You gotta understand, flash forward 25 years, I'm getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. I'm going, this is unreal.

I am living a dream. But it does start with the humility. Like I had to just, you know, give it up to other people who helped me and who showed me what to do. My first movie, I didn't know what I was doing.

Michael Rooker, who's one of the best actors in the game right now. He showed me how to do everything. And I just listened. He was like, Terry, when I move this way, I want you to replace me and just take over, man, and then say your lines. And he said, and if you have an itch on your face, just itch it while you're talking. And I was going, OK, because I would be like Mr.

Robot. I have to say my line and the whole thing. And I had all these people who were willing to tell me how to act because I was willing to listen.

But if I walked in there and acted like I knew everything already, I wouldn't have gone far at all. And yet, Terry Crews, by the way, Terry Crews, America's Got Talent on NBC, Tuesdays at 8, season 18. My gosh, right here on The Rich Eisen Show. If you watch the end of training day, we've talked about this before, but I want to talk about it again.

The end of training day. Yes. It's all going down. And it's going downhill. Oh, yeah. For Denzel.

Going downhill for him. And I look to his, if I'm not mistaken, right. And there's Terry Crews.

That's right. Staring him down. Staring him down.

He's like King Kong ain't got or me. And listen, I'll never forget that night. You have to understand, I showed up just to watch a friend of mine. He was the location manager and he was like, hey, man, you can come down.

Denzel's working in L.A. You can come down and see Denzel work. I was like, I would love to. Now, you already T money on the battle. I was already T money. I was like, you know, I was doing my little acting thing, you know, but it was like whatever. And the director, Antoine Fuqua, came over and said, hey, man, you want to be in this movie? And I was like, what?

Yeah. And I was actually in another scene in training day. He said, take your shirt off and go to the roof. And I was seeing where they were clipping pigeons where he's like clapping and the pigeons in the air and Denzel's coming into the cul-de-sac. And then he said, come back every night and I'll put you in different places. So I came back on that night and there was Denzel's big scene.

He said, I want you standing right there. Let me tell you, my mother freaked out. She was like, oh, my God, you're in this movie. And when it was on the Oscars, when Denzel won the Academy Award, they showed that scene. And my mother was like, you're on the Oscars. I was like, no, I'm not. But I'm in the clip on the Oscars.

You know what I mean? But let me tell you, Rich, if that was all I ever did in my career, I would have been super happy. What was it like, though, to watch him deliver those lines in that scene in that moment? It was unreal. First of all, again, the same feeling I had walking into the locker room and seeing all those NFL greats and knowing I was playing with them like we are about to go on the field together. That was the same feeling I had being on that scene in that scene with Denzel. And I'm going, I'm in this movie.

Like, you got to understand, I am a little kid from Flint, Michigan. I'm living what I call way above whatever I could ask or think every day. And that's why I'm the most grateful man in Hollywood.

It's probably you can't find a man more grateful to me because I know where I could be. You know what I mean? I know what was out there. And it was nothing. And so I look at my trajectory and I'm going, this is unreal. I look at my wife every day and we're like, can you believe this is happening?

It's really great. Yeah, you can believe it for sure. And so when Denzel is done with that soliloquy, does he need a minute or do you? Oh, no, I didn't mess with him. But you know what I did?

I did sneak something, which I didn't take anything. But I saw his script. And he had his script. It was laying on the car, you know, like when he's in between scenes and the whole thing. And he had written on the cover, The Wages of Sin is Death.

Like, this is how deep he goes. And it's funny because I found out later that they were trying to think about making them live so they could do a sequel. And he was like, I won't do this movie because I'm so bad. You've got to kill me. Because he said because it was written on his script.

The Wages of Sin is Death. And I was like, this dude is the man. Like, I'm watching. See, and you understand after all those years of picking up little traits from the different people and all that. And I take it with me, man. I'm like, man, I will never forget this. And it's going to make me a better performer.

The fact that he would go that far and try to learn his motivations. It was a masterclass. Let's say that. That's what he wrote on his script. That is crazy. It's incredible. Terry Crews here on The Rich Eisen Show. What's your I'm sure you're asked this.

So I'll ask him as well. Your favorite act that you've witnessed on America's Got Talent. Oh, man. One that blew you away.

I guess maybe we should parse it out. The one that you least expected it. And you're like, holy crap. That was it. First of all, I have to say my number one act is this young lady by the name of Jane Marczewski, Marczewski, who actually passed away and she had cancer. But she went by the name of Nightbird.

OK. But she was so inspirational. She left there. She was like, hey, you can't wait for life to be the way you want it for you to be happy.

You have to decide to be happy. And it was like a hush went over that room because we all knew her circumstances. We did. We found out while she was on stage that she had terminal cancer. But she was singing anyway.

She was like and it taught me such a lesson. And that's the thing. I'm why I love hosting this show so much is because I keep learning these lessons of what creativity does and then what being how courageous you have to be to get out in front of the stage.

And it's one of those things. I know Ralph Waldo Emerson has a quote and it said, God will not have his work made manifest by cowards. That means for anything to get done, you have to be courageous. I mean, for you to be born, your mother had to be courageous enough to have you.

You know what I mean? So there's nothing going to get done without that courage. And when she went on stage and performance, she got the golden buzzer from Simon Cowell. But it wasn't it was less than a couple of years later and she eventually passed. But her legacy goes on and on and on. It's something I will never forget. It's something I will never that that lesson that she taught us all was so impactful for me. It's literally fuels almost everything I do right now.

Like be grateful and decide to be happy every day. And that's up to you. And then so what's the which is the act that was totally off the wall that you couldn't believe what you were witnessing? There's a guy named Sethward, whom I love. He's probably auditioned for the show.

You know, we've been around 18 years, sir. He's been probably auditioned maybe 15 of those 18. He always gets buzzed and he always comes back and he never stops. And I love him.

Like, I can't wait for Sethward. You know, he's absolutely he even has a show that he does at various comedy clubs called AGT Rejects. He's made a bit out of being rejected. First of all, he turned a bad thing into his his his his glory. Yeah. And I for me, that's my spirit as well.

It's the same spirit. Hey, man, every day, just keep going. In fact, be anti fragile. Turn something that should have broken you and make it the thing that you are selling. Yeah, that's me right now.

Turn yourself into being unbreakable. Who is the one that cracked you up the most Brooklyn Nine-Nine? Oh my god, you know, actually, I love Andy. Andy is the is, you know, he's the man. Yeah, but Chelsea Peretti is the funniest person I've probably ever encountered. To me. I've never I always laugh with Chelsea.

I've never with someone else. It's always been a hit or miss. Chelsea has the ability to make me crack up. And I mean, to the point of tears. Yeah, this was the stuff.

Even when the camera wasn't rolling. I was like this woman is a genius. I can't wait to see what Chelsea does in the future. She's got more coming. She's actually the best thing.

I think she's like the new Carol Burnett to be honest. So how are you locked into the current NFL? Or you just got stuff going on? I've been watching vicariously.

It's because again, I'm really, really busy. I know you are. But I love this new NFL, to be honest.

What do you mean? What I mean is, when it when I saw DeMar Hamlin, and I saw what happened. You know, I was part of a game back in when I was on the Rams, like in 1991. We were playing Detroit. And you were there.

Mike Utley. You were on the field. You were at the I was actually on the sideline on the sideline. Right.

So you were in the state. I watched him go down and break his neck and never walk again. Okay. And we kept playing. You understand? The game kept going. He they rolled him off. He gave up thumbs up.

Right. And you never stopped the game. But to see what happened with DeMar and actually stop a game. I said, this is a new NFL. And I think, you know, we have to realize that we have to put people's lives before the game. You know, and there was a point where it was literally like the other way around. When I in my time playing, it was like, if you died on that field, that's part of the game.

And I think the whole mentality is much better now. And I'm very, very thankful. Because I have, you know, basically, you know, I look at players now, they could be my kids, you know, out there. And that's a family. These are real life human beings out here. And they're not numbers. And people put the helmets on, they forget what they look like. But I'm like, no, these are real people.

And we have to treat them and care for them as if they were real people. No doubt. And it looks like he's getting back on the field ready to roll. I'm so happy. Listen, man, that could have happened to anybody, anybody. It was a freak accident. No doubt.

It's just the way it is. I often think about man, if I'd have been hitting the chest at that right time and right place, it could have been me. And it's so I'm just so happy he did. He survived, man. I'm just so happy.

Yeah, me too. And did you see who got the first to interview exclusive with him? It was Strayhan. Mike! First of all, I couldn't have not be prouder than my man, Mike Strayhan. He is man.

Clark of our generation. He's taking over everything. I love Mike. Mike is he is he's doing it the way it should be done.

You know what I'm saying? And I don't know what else to say. You know, I just I actually got to hang with him like a week ago when I was in New York. And then I got to speak when he got his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. I actually got to speak when he got when he got his star. Right. What did you say? I just thought what a great person this man is.

You know what I mean? It's like it's beyond football. It was always beyond football for him. Like there was he was going to be a star. His parents raised a great young man and he has the greatest morals and he just really cares for everybody that, you know, he literally looks at you, shakes your hand and cares how you're doing for real.

And that makes a difference. I love him. I love him and what Dion's doing in Colorado as well for coaching. And you know what else I got to mention? Has he called you up to have you part of anything? Not yet.

Not yet. I love Dion by the way. I love Dion. But I'm also proud of my man Eric Bienemey. I played with Eric Bienemey at the Chargers back in the day and to see his rise up the coaching ranks. You know, I want to see him be a head coach.

I mean, it's got to be inevitable because Eric Bienemey is a star, man. He was a star when we were playing together. He was running back, back on the Chargers days.

Was he also a red ass there too though? Because he goes right at people. Oh yeah.

When he was coaching Adrian Peterson, he was coaching him really hard. But that's the thing. He's a player.

Right. See, you know, it's hard when you have people who haven't played and they're yelling at you as if, you know, you're just a cog in a wheel or you're a chess piece. But you can take that from a guy who's been there, who's taken the same hits you've taken. You've got to lead by example.

And Eric Bienemey is an example in every way. So I tell you, and this is another thing too, I think that, you know, we've gotten to a point right now where people care a little too much about feelings and you got to be able to tell people the truth. You know what I mean?

Now, as everybody doesn't want their feelings hurt. And we got to get tougher than that. You know what I'm saying? Bienemey's that guy.

He's definitely the one to deliver that. We got to get tougher. Same thing with Deion too. Same thing with Prime. Deion says the same thing. He's like, hey, I had crunches that were harder on me. Oh yeah. But they make you who you are. I mean, if you can't face any of that adversity, if you have to have everything the way you want it, are you really going to get better?

I mean, all my difficulties made me who I am. You know what I'm saying? And that's the thing. And I don't shy away from it. It's like, man, go into a difficult situation. Don't run from difficult situations. That's going to, you know, how are you going to improve?

You know, that kind of resistance, it makes you better. No doubt. So that's where I'm at.

America's Got Talent season 18, Tuesdays 8 p.m. Eastern on NBC. And you can watch it on Peacock as well. Yes.

Right here on Roku. There you go. Thanks for coming on, Terry.

Oh, man, I love it. Let's do this one right back. Let's do this more often whenever you want to come in, whatever. And then maybe the Jonas Brothers will do another fake Olympics. We'll be that's what I'm saying. We'll be in the booth for that. We'll be in the booth for it.

You know what I mean? Don't break no ribs, guys. At Terry Crews on both Twitter and Instagram. The great Terry Crews right here on the Rich Eisen Show will wrap up the show.

Get ready for Game 3 tonight in a moment. For decades, Rolling Stone has set the bar for entertainment publications. Today, Rolling Stone Music Now takes over in podcast form. Songwriter and producer Jamie Hartman reacts to the Ed Sheeran verdict. You need to create something new.

And of course, you're going to use traditional parts to get there. Are you going to sue the Rolling Stones for making a samba out of sympathy for the devil? Are you going to sue Elvis Presley for writing Bart Zunova?

It's like saying you're not allowed to use a pencil to create a piece of art. Rolling Stone Music Now, wherever you listen. I want to play a celebrity true or false with you, Terry Crews, with some stuff from some previous interviews of yours and on IMDb pages and stuff. I want to know what's true and what's not true or false. Terry Crews, your first job was as a sketch artist for a local news station in the 80s. True or false?

That is true. I started sketching for the station and they put me on the worst murder case in Flint, Michigan history. I was in the courtroom. I did the courtroom sketches.

Did you see the sketch artist from the Deflategate case with Tom Brady when it's right up there? Oh, yeah. Oh, my God. No. Come on now. Well, he probably was hungry.

You know, he was hangry. Another one. You worked on the set as a bodyguard for Cube before he cast you on Friday After Next. That's your story.

Now, that's true. But the bodyguard sounds sexy. OK, it was security guard like I had a T-shirt with a flashlight bodyguard sounds like suits and all that. No, no, no.

It was no like I was like watching Cube's car. Hey, man, make sure my car stays there. I'm like, yes, sir. Yes, sir. And I have my batteries. But this thing, I made sure all my little like polo shirts were really tied up good on the arm.

Yeah. They were like, yeah, it was medium all medium shirts. And they were like, oh, I look so amazing. And then he cast you. Then he put you in.

And then he put me in Friday After Next. What was your role in Training Day? Oh, I was an uncredited gang member.

That was it. I was walked on the set to watch Denzel work. And the director, Antoine Fuqua, said, hey, man, you know what? I don't put you in this movie.

You down. I was like, OK, OK. So he said, take your shirt off.

I took my shirt off. And I was the guy on the roof that was flipping pigeons. And the whole thing is Denzel came down, just walked on the set to see Denzel work. And you see, I had a friend who was like a location guy doing security. Yeah.

And he was like, man, you want to watch Denzel tonight? I was like, yep. See, this is the thing. A lot of your success just comes from proximity. You know what I mean? You can be broke anywhere. I decided to be broke in L.A. You know what I'm saying?

And a lot of great things happen. Fun stuff. The Rich Eisen Show radio network back on the air is sitting at the Rich Eisen Show desk, furnished by Grainger, with supplies and solutions for every industry. Grainger is the right product for you.

Call or just stop by. After game two, you know, reaction from everybody, you know, I sometimes will turn a phone on wherever I'm at. Hey, this game just ended. Instant reaction. We're all looking for it, right?

Of course. Draymond Green had instant reaction on his podcast with his guest. How does he get Steve Kerr? But Steve Kerr said, all right, Draymond, I'll come on and do some punditry and talk to you.

And Draymond on his pod asked Steve Kerr after game two about this is an excellent question. When you're a coach, how do you take out somebody like Max Struce, who is hot, he's got a good game going, a good night going, and sit him in the fourth quarter for Duncan Robinson? How does that happen?

How do you pull that off? Well, obviously it helps that Duncan Robinson makes shots when he comes in the game. And so, but Draymond's point is essentially like a great question, certainly from a player point of view, like, hey, one guy is hot, you take him out and the other one goes in.

How do you handle that from a chemistry point of view? And how do you handle that with your players? And Kerr gave a thoughtful answer about how it's set up throughout the entire year, you lay out a mentality of teamwork.

And the answer has people thinking, is Steve Kerr passive-aggressively saying something to the rest of the team not named, say Draymond, Clay or Steph? None of those guys on Miami are sitting there saying, well, I didn't play or man, they put in so-and-so, like, they're just all about winning. And you know this from our groups that we've had, when you have that championship mentality, every guy's bought in, every guy's just trying to win, nobody cares about any of that stuff.

You don't go into the locker room saying, well, I should have played more. You just want to win. And that's the beauty of finding that magic when you have a championship team, is that everybody's bought in and it makes the decisions for the coach really simple.

You just go with your gut and go with whoever's playing well. What do you think? I don't know if Kerr's got a passive-aggressive bone in his body or he does come from the Phil Jackson world, which is... Phil, pop, do it through the media.

Pat Riley. Gotta send your messages. Yeah. It certainly sounds like he's kind of being like, we all need to get on the same page.

We need to be selfless. It's all about team. But then he's also having that conversation with the guy who... Cole cocked one of the kids who might be saying such things.

Some weird stuff in motion for this season. Interesting. And the media that you say that he's speaking through is his own player's platform. Talk about a 21st century moment. Who calls it new media? Draymond's the king of the new media. Draymond does a good job. That's a very good question. He elicited an answer that gets people talking about it. For sure. And it's amazing how last year they're going on this run.

They're the ones playing in this series. And now they're talking about how it can fall apart if what the disease of me... That's what Pat Riley says. Which is what Riley says happens.

That's a Riley thing, the disease of me. What about my minutes? What about my time? And so Struce goes 0 for 10 in game one, and then shows up and has a much better game and then gets taken out. And then Duncan Robinson takes it the rest of the way.

And Spulstra walks back into the locker room and say, let's get ready for game three. Cool. Great job, guys. Let's go. Let's go, right?

And that's what the answer is, is he doesn't have to pull this guy over and say, hey, sorry I took you out. Massage ego. No, no.

It's just like, this is the culture. This is what we got going. And you need to come back game three and shoot the lights out again.

And guess what? I may take you out for Duncan Robinson. Or Duncan shoots the lights out and I take him out in urine. Let's go. Game three tonight. Let's go.

What do you got? What happens, Rich? You say this all the time and I'm never right. So I'm not taking this cheese. I have no idea. I have zero idea what's going to happen tonight.

I do not know. My general sense is that the Nuggets show up and put a championship game on the floor in an NBA finals road game for the first time. As you know, it's their first foray into this. This is their first time away from home.

They've been so bad on the road this year. So what? I don't know. I need a full 48 from them because they haven't done it so far in the finals. Here we go. Game three. We'll talk about it with Jamal Crawford on tomorrow's program. What?

Yes, indeed. I did not know. Conspiracy theories. Paranormal UFOs. Science teacher Andrew Greenwood stated that a child ran into his classroom and was hysterically screaming and talking about the flying saucer outside. Hundreds of children ran out of their classrooms to go outside and see this unidentified flying object that was just above the school. Just imagine a bunch of kids running out of school.

Most of them probably just ran home. Peace of the third kind on YouTube or wherever you listen.
