Honestly. Live from the Rich Eisen Show studio in Los Angeles. Does he want to stay in Chicago?

Yeah, of course. I feel like the biggest thing with all this is just letting me know if I'm getting traded, letting me know if I'm staying. The Rich Eisen Show. I get it with Justin Fields feeling that way. Earlier on the show, NFL network analyst Chase Daniel, senior NBA insider for the athletic and stadium, Tom Sharanya.

Coming up Pro Football Hall of Famer Terry Bradshaw. And now it's Rich Eisen. Hour number three of the Rich Eisen Show is on the air.

844-204rich is the number to dial. We've got time for you this hour if you want. Chris Brockman's got a news update on what's going on in the rest of the world that finally gets some real significant live game action coming up tonight. The NBA returns from its All-Star break. We haven't seen NBA action in over a week, and that does include the NBA All-Star game. That's coming up tonight. Sham Sharanya joined us in hour number two from the athletic and also stadium, giving us his two cents on what he thinks the second half of the season is going to look like.

And anybody out there needs an update on their favorite teams star injured star athletes and whether they're going to return from MB to Julius Randall. Stay tuned. We re-air right here on the Roku channel as soon as we are done.

Every single day, 12 to 3 Eastern Live, and then we re-air until the very next day. Chase Daniel was on in hour number one. But joining us right now to kick off hour number three is one of my favorite human beings on the planet. Thrilled to have back here on the Rich Eisen Show in advance of him bringing his acclaimed stage production, the Terry Bradshaw Show, back to Branson, Missouri starting this spring.

The great Terry Bradshaw. How are you, Terry? Good morning, sir. How are you doing?

Aloha from the beautiful state of Hawaii. Is that where you are right now? I am.

I am. We've been over here about a week, a week, yeah, about a week. Then I had some work to do and we went back for three days and we're back again. We're here two weeks and then all the kids come over in 10 days.

And so we'll be over here about a month. Are you a big island guy? We're in Hawaii. I am. Okay. Yeah. I am a big island guy.

Nice. We're located at Kohala Ranch up on the volcano about 1,900 feet above sea level tonight. Terry, you're the man.

I really appreciate you taking time from Hawaii. My gosh, from your time out zooming in here. I honestly was thinking when I was leaving the Super Bowl and Mahomes did it again, who can I talk to who has as many if not more rings and knows what it's like to do back to back? Who can I talk to about that? Well, I'm the original TV, so you want to talk to me? Yes, sir. I'll return your phone call and I'll be right here for you.

Not a problem. Well, you know, us Michigan men do like to try to stick together. But all that said, what went through your temples when you watched Mahomes do his thing on Super Sunday night? The fourth quarter, I felt like the game was Kansas City's. I thought the first three quarters with neither offense being able to do anything, defensive play and really both defenses I thought were playing well.

I like to scheme the 49ers had set up for Mahomes. No, there were no exciting plays offensively. All the big plays were defensively.

Right. But I thought by the time the ball in overtime account thought maybe they should have passed on that and Kansas City have the ball first. But I understood it because their defense had been on the field so long and they needed to rest themselves. That made sense too. But I thought by the time the fourth quarter got going, I saw that the momentum had switched to the chief side and that they would win, especially because in games like that when teams are kind of evenly matched. I think you tend to see a lot of times when you see a lot of men to go right to the quarterback and say, all right, do I want, you know, the young kid from 49ers, or do I want the guy Mahomes who's electrifying? And obviously that would be your choice.

If you're tossing it up and down, that would be the way to look at it. Well, obviously, you know, and what it takes to win a game like that from the position that Mahomes plays, I'd imagine you'd want to know if you had a fourth down, you could go for it, right? So that was the conversation about the overtime is that you're not only giving Mahomes the ball and knowing what he needs to do, but for half the field, a fourth down, four shots at it, right? That's an amazing coach. I think, you know, I think, I think America appreciates him more and more and more.

He's getting, he's in his sixties and he's a little chubby guy. And he stands over on the sideline with that mustache. We see that I have the vision of the, of it frozen in the, in the playoff game. And you just have so much respect from his offensive mind.

And when you, when a person says offensive mind, all you're talking about is formations, all these formations and all this movement to create that one-on-one or, or, or that confusion on a defense. And I just thought, I thought Andy Reed was just brilliant, you know, in this football game. Have they ever given the MVP to a coach? I know, right? I know. I don't believe so, but I understand MVC, the most valuable coach in the game, you know, and he's, he's an, he's an old school guy too, but, but he does relate to the current players in a way that, that is the envy of, of many.

And, and he's able to, I guess, let things roll off his back in real time. I imagine you never went up to Chuck Knoll and gave him an earful like Travis Kelsey did in the middle of the game to, to Reed, right? Terry, you never did that to Chuck? No, I never, no. Are you kidding? No, I never did that. First of all, let me explain something to you, Rich. Once again, I called my own play, so I didn't have anybody to deal with but myself. All right.

So yes. Hey, listen, I know some people out there are watching this going, well, why that arrogant guy? No, no folks. You don't understand, you know, us guys that played in the seventies, we're so far down the totem pole when it comes to ranking quarterbacks, because our numbers are so hideous and our interceptions are so high. So we reach and grab for anything we can get to remain, you know, constant, you know, and I didn't, I would, I never did and nor would I ever have gone and done that to Chuck Knoll. I did take his hands off of me one time and throw them down. Cause he, he had a habit of grabbing me, but we won't try to make a point while I knew he was trying to make a point, but didn't need to grab me.

And I remember taking his hands and throwing them down one. How'd he take that? He took it. Fine. Okay. He took it. Fine. Yeah. He understood Chuck.

Smart man. He understood. He did the battle. It's it's like Travis Kelsey. I felt bad for Andy because Andy had had hip surgery.

He had his game plan in his hand. And when Kelsey went over, Kelsey didn't push him. I think Kelsey, Kelsey went over and bumped, accidentally bumped him. I don't think he pushed him or anything.

It was an accident, but it looked bad on television. And I felt bad for Andy. As a matter of fact, when the game was over, I text Andy, he immediately get this. He, he immediately text me back. And I said, way to go, you know, play great defense for three quarters, four quarters, got in overtime, turned it over to number 15 and win the game. And, uh, he was, well, he was quick to respond and very gracious in his response, nothing about Kelsey and Kelsey felt bad and it's over. They won the football game.

They did. Terry Bradshaw here in the Rich Eisen show. And listen, Terry, you know, you, you got four and Mahomes is three and we all understand, you know, numbers and things of that nature. Right. And you just even just alluded to it that guys from your era are not included in the Mount Rushmore conversation very much because you know, it wasn't the passing league or anything like that sort of thing, but it was a grown ass man league. That's for damn sure. You know, Hey, you better be a big boy.

So you're going to get your ass handed to you. And, uh, it was no faint of heart there, boy. It was a different football game completely. Not to say that these guys wouldn't be outstanding. If they played, say, if Mahomes played for Pittsburgh, his numbers wouldn't, they would, I don't think they'd be any different because they just, you know, when you average 19 passes a game, they're not going to be different.

They do 19 passes in the first two series now. I know, I know it's a different era. And I, and sometimes I, and I, I say to my wife, Tam, who's on the other side of the, of the computer here, and I say all the time, you know, I wish I'd played in this era so that I could have, you know, proven that I, you know, I'm, I'm not a 52% completion guy. I'm a much higher than I would be with the offenses they run and could throw for all the yardage and have all the touchdowns. And then everybody is, Oh man, he was so good. And then you say, Whoa, Whoa, Whoa, Whoa.

I'm okay where I am. You sometimes wish that young people would realize to see, I remember Bart Starr in the first two Super Bowls. I remember Namath when he, when they won the Super Bowl in what was the 69 or 70 and in the merger of the NFL in 69, forced the merger actually.

So I remember that I remember playing against John Hadel, George Blanda, I played against Bart Starr and the way the game was played back then. And it's not to say that it wasn't great football, but it was, I thought the first three quarters of the Super Bowl this year, 58, I thought was defense. And I'm sitting there and I'm going, I know America sitting back there going, boy, this is boring, but it was so good to watch and see the strategy and how great both defenses were put to the ball. I mean, if you like great football, that was great football. I mean, I love that. And then you get tired.

You got to understand those big men, they're not little men, they're big men. You have to rush in the passer, rush in the passer, rush in the passer, rush in the passer. Hey, you eventually get tired. When you get tired, the brain makes mistakes and Mahomes gets outside where he had been able to get outside running, scrambling. So it was, I really loved the strategy. And as a quarterback, I'm sitting there watching defense, watching the defense. And I'm like, man, these guys, both teams are playing fabulous. And that's why you just had to feel like, and I was proud of Purdy.

I thought he played extremely well under conditions that he was in. Got his team down there, tied the football, had the lead. Mahomes tied it and we knew he would. You know, it's kind of like when I watch Brady play against Atlanta, I'm standing on the sidelines, he drives him down.

What's his face? It makes that incredible, God, that catch. Yeah, Julio Jones made that incredible catch for Atlanta. Hey, Julio made that catch. I was four yards from that catch. How he caught that ball, I'll never know. Because when the guy came up, he swiped at it and Julio caught that ball right on the sideline with a 22 yard line. And I'm like, oh my God, was that amazing?

And I thought if they were going to win the game, Terry, that would have been up there with Lynn Swan and he's the greatest catches in the history of the Super Bowl. And instead we're talking about the overtime win and things of that nature. Well, the overtime, when they came back, when Atlanta came back on the very next play and tried to pass, I'm going, because I got a security guard there, not with me. He was just standing there and I said, hey, this game, this game is over now. Kneel down, kick the field goal, see you later. And they drive back to pass and I hollered, you got to be kidding. Sack, oh my God, this security guy's looking at me because I'm playing quarterback now.

And then all of a sudden they drop back again. Holding call left tackle. Another 15 yarder.

Well, there it is. And then of course, they tried to get it and they didn't get it. And Tom Brady got the ball and I turned to the guy, Julian Edelman, when he made that catch. Remember that unbelievable catch Edelman made? Yeah, the Boston knee party.

Oh my God, yeah. I'm sitting right there. I'm sitting right there. And I turned to the security guard and I said, game over. I said, they're going to tie this game up and then they'll win it in overtime.

Sure enough. I even told Howie Long at halftime, Howie was so upset because Chris Long was playing for New England. They were down what, 28 to 3, something like that. And I told Howie, hey, hey, it's okay.

It's okay. Now they're going to do what they do best and that's throw, throw, throw, throw, throw. And that's how they're going to get back in the game.

So stop worrying. Exactly what happened. Exactly what happened. Terry Bradshaw here on the Rich Eisen Show. So in the few minutes I have left with you, Terry, where do you place Mahomes in the all-time great? Where do you put him? I'll do that when he retires, Rich.

Okay. I would say right now, I always rate quarterbacks according to winning Super Bowls. Brady obviously, Montana obviously, great quarterbacks. And they always put Uninus in there.

Nobody ever says anything about Starr. It's a different kind of way of playing. I would put Mahomes up there right now simply because he reminds me so much of Brady in the sense he is so fiercely competitive and so amazingly confident in everything he does.

And a great leader. You can see that. So if I put Mahomes and Brady, Mahomes will give me the mobility to avoid sacks outside of that. Then you've got Tom down there reading coverages between the one and two. One's more athletic. They're both extremely accurate, both extremely confident.

I would say in the modern day of football, as we know it now in the last 20 years, then I would say I would probably take Mahomes just because of his athletic ability. But it's hard to say. The other guy's got seven Super Bowl titles. And Patrick is about to experience. He thought this year was tough.

Wait till next year. Everybody will be after him. I tried to go for three Super Bowls in a row twice. Hey, Rich, it's exhausting.

Everybody wants a piece of you. Everybody plays above what they're capable of playing. I mean, you feel the pressure. There's a part of you that says, oh, my gosh, I've got to play Cleveland again, Cincinnati again, Houston, all these teams. Let's get to the playoffs because all you want to do is get to the playoffs. That's what happened to Kansas City this year. They're flummeling around, looking bad. We're all going, what's wrong with Kansas City? And I'm going, nothing wrong with Kansas City.

They're bored. They want to get to the playoffs. And that'll be the same approach Rich they'll have next year. They'll struggle. They're going to probably struggle worse than they did. They'll probably have to go on the road again because Denver is going to be better. I guarantee you the Chargers are going to be better.

The Raiders with Pierce leading the way, they're going to be better. It is not going to be easy in their division. So they're going to have a hard time. But bottom line is they're going to want to get through all of that. And they're going to say, just get us in the playoffs. And if they get in the playoffs next year, I think if they make the playoffs next year, I think they're going to be the first team to win three Super Bowls because I don't know who can beat them in the NFC.

So they're going to have to get through, of course, Baltimore too. So it's going to be fun to watch. I'm already, I mean, a couple of weeks out now, you know.

You and me both, Terry. I'm ready to go, you know. I'm still watching television and everybody's trying to hang on to football. You know, if you go to the NFL network, you can watch all you want. But yeah, I'm looking forward to the draft. Anxious to see the trades that are going to be made.

Yeah. I haven't, I've had a couple, you know, a couple of weeks off of football. Now I'm kind of, you know, I'm ready to get back into it. Before I let you go on your Hawaii Thursday, what's your opinion on who should be the Steelers' starting quarterback this coming season, Terry? I love Pickett. Kenny Pickett is, I'll tell you what, Rich. I know him, I know him well. And he's fiercely competitive. He's a tough-minded kid. Things don't bother him. I really like him a lot.

Look, I'm going to say this for the 10,000th time this year. Surround not only Kenny, but any of these young quarterbacks, the kid with the Bears, surround them with talent. Wyatt's pretty successful with the 49ers, Rich. Look at all that talent and look at that coach calling plays. And that kid's got the poise. Kenny has the poise. I just want my quarterback to be poised, all right? I just want him poised. If he's poised, then his brain's going to be calm. He's going to see the coverages. He's going to be quick with this decision-making. And Pickett has all of that. They're going to beat him up and they're going to want to trade for fields in Chicago.

And I say that's a huge mistake. You don't need fields. Stay with what you got. Just build him up. Get him another receiver. Get him an explosive tight end. Give him another tackle. Give him a guard. Have the ability to protect him and then give him guys on the outside.

This is the passing league now. Give him people out there that can run and catch the football and that are smart. He's fine. That's their guy.

They're probably going to be a lot of negative about it, but that's the guy I would go with. Yeah, I mean, Arthur Smith, too, being brought in to be the OC. I like that. I like that. Exactly. So do I. Arthur was one game away from staying in Atlanta. That's right.

That's a heartbreaker for him. He's a good dude. Yeah. Good guy. Are you making your burgers out there?

Bradshaw Brands Frozen Burgers? You doing that? No. No?

No. You got to bring them. You didn't bring them over?

No, no. They don't have them on the islands. No bourbon either. The bourbon company went kaput flying away. So I have no bourbon. I got three bottles of Bradshaw bourbon left. Okay.

Bradshaw Brands. Hey, Rick. Yes, sir. Are you in LA? Of course. Yes, sir.

Yeah. Do you have any land? Would you like a horse? I mean, anybody there want a horse?

I really need to sell some horses. Okay. Give us some thought. Hey, you don't have to say this over there.

Just give us some thought, Matt. Okay. Well, if I could just sell you one or two for what?

Three, four hundred grand then. All right. Terry Bradshaw Brands dot com slash Bradshaw Ranch. Dash Ranch.

That's a way that they can reach out to you selling horses and obviously getting your Bradshaw Ranch thick and juicy burger patties. That's it. Okay. You got it. And then you got your show returning Branson this spring. Right. We go back to Branson in April and then we'll tour the country and do some casino shows.

You know, big casinos in theaters. You're the best, man. Trying to lose weight. I lost 24 pounds, Rich. It's just good.

You look good, Terry. No, I don't. Yes, you do. What are you talking about? What are you saying? You look rich.

No, I don't. Thank you. God bless you. How good do I look, Rich? You look great. And this is high definition, Terry. Come on. Hey, man, I'm telling you. You get no makeup. You look great. It's the Hawaiian glow.

No, for all those 75 year olds. Hey, it's, I'm telling you, man, I never, I'd say, God, I feel so good. I look so thin. And then my buddy who's here playing golf with Tammy and I, he filmed me yesterday on a part three. I went, first thing I did this morning when he sent it to me, the film to see my swing, I went, I didn't see the swing. I went, look, honey, look at the gut.

Are you kidding me? Look at the gut. You look great. She said, you look at the gut.

You look great. That's it. Come on now. It's a struggle, man. It's a struggle. You're the best, Terry. I want to be an inspiration to all the older people out there. So I'm going to keep on going.

You are that. If you got two more minutes, you got a, you got a, you got a, you got a, a Burt Reynolds story for me. What's your, what's your, what's your go-to Burt Reynolds story, Terry, what do you got for me there? A really good Burt Reynolds story. Was it from Smokey and the Bandit 2, could it have been anywhere else?

What do you got? One of my greatest, one of my stories with doing Smokey and the Bandit 2 with Burt and Sally and everybody was Jackie Gleason. I got to do a scene with Jackie Gleason and I told him, here comes, Burt comes around in the, at the orange bowl and then here comes Jackie Gleason and that old jalopy car of his and he's coming, he's chasing Burt, obviously. And Burt says, Hey, can you do me a favor? Can you stop the car?

And I said, Oh sure. And I go, Hey, Joe, tackle that car. So Joe tackles and turns Jackie Gleason over. When I was sitting in the car with Jackie and he had a golf cup, I'm not kidding you, this huge golf cup full of vodka, I'm like, wow, this is great.

So Jackie was hammering down, Jackie Gleason was hammering down vodkas during the shooting of Smokey and the Bandit 2. We were talking football and having a good time and he's drinking it, asked me if I'd like a sip, you know, look, I double dated with Burt, stayed at his house, stayed at his dad's house, went to his theater in Jupiter. He and I became really good friends and he really liked me and I really liked him and he was one of those guys who would call and say, Hey, how you doing? You know, you didn't have to call them, you know, you had, it's kind of like, he's a movie star and I'm just a football guy.

So I have to always make the friendship connection. That wasn't Burt. Burt was always one call out of nowhere, Hey, how you doing? How you feeling? Good. Going to be coming out, coming out where we're filming in New Mexico and he'd give me the dates and when we just come out, I went, no, I mean, yeah, no, no, I can't make that. I do have one story quickly for you.

Sure. What else, Terry? I got my country music tour in Los Angeles and I was singing at the Palomino club. Remember the famous Palomino club? And so I'm there and Superbowl was a week before or two weeks, a week before, probably two weeks, who knows. Anyway, Burt Reynolds went on NBC that night and did a skit about my brains and how dumb I was and so on and so forth. And Pittsburgh fans just annihilated him with letters and complaints and so on and so forth.

And so I'm out in Los Angeles. He sends his agent, David Gershenson, who ended up being my manager for 43 years. He sends him out to the Palomino club and has a giant horseshoe deal of carnations and a huge letter from him saying how deeply sorry he was.

He didn't want to do the piece. He related to me a lot. He respected me and so on and so forth. Please accept this and would you come to the shoot tomorrow? I'd like to meet you and give you a hug and tell you I'm sorry in person. Well, I had a show in Albuquerque, New Mexico the following night, I mean two nights, I had one day off for travel. And so David Gershenson, I said, yeah, I'll go. So David picked me up and drove me out on the highway, probably an hour or so out of town and there Bert was filming Hooper, you know, the stunt movie. And so I go out there and he comes out of his trailer and we pull up and he grabs me, kisses me on the cheek and he tells me how much he loves me and he's sorry. And he gets everybody over to meet me, come meet Terry Bradshaw and say, hey man, he hugs me again. He says, have you got a few minutes?

You have to rush off. I said, well, I got to go catch a flight and you know, the so-and-so, but no, I'm not rushing off. He said, hey, how about doing this movie Hooper? And I said, Bert, I'm not an actor.

He said, I don't care. You don't have to, I want to make what I did to you up. I want you in this movie.

He calls Hal Needham, the director over and they get on the top of Bert's truck and they're going through the copy of the movie. Where can we put him in? Where can we put him?

Hey, here, right here. Let's make him a SWAT guy. So I was a SWAT guy from Houston, Texas, and I'm in the movie, my first movie, Hooper. And we're filming at the Palomino Club, believe it or not.

It was actually in the parking lot dressed up to look like the Palomino Club with nothing over top. And my first scene was to go over to the jukebox and I turn it off and I tell him, I go back to the teller. I forgot the lines I was supposed to use. So when I stood over at the table, I pushed him back and I threw some dialogue out, like, you know, hey, look, you know, nobody messes. I just had to live because I was embarrassed. I just had to live and they never stopped it.

They liked it. And I hit him on the head with a deal and we laughed and he told me, the first time I hit him, he said, no, no, no, hit me. I didn't want to hurt him. Hit me. He said, yeah, it's already cracked, they stuck the helmet together.

And if you watch it, you'll see the crack, this blood. I said, I can't if I hit you hard, I might hurt you. You're not going to hurt me. Hit me. I said, you want me to hit you?

I said, I'm going to hit you. And in the movie, I was bam and that helmet, he hits the ground and I'm in panic form now because my God, I thought maybe I knocked him out. That was my first scene with him and lived the scene and hit me.

All born out of that skit. And then you wind up in Smokey and the Bandit 2, the Cannonball Run, you even did Evening Shade. I mean, my goodness, a lifelong friendship. And yeah, he was, I mean, he loves me.

I don't know why he always wanted me to go out dating with him. We'd go to Donna Shore Palace and she'd have dinner and she'd call me darling and darling. And Sally Fields, I used to sit with her while she would, what do you call that, croquet, whatever that croquet, whatever that's, she'd do between takes. And so I just became part of the family, his mom and dad were awesome. His brother was awesome.

Yeah, I kind of got into the family and yeah, he was a great, great man. Terry, you are awesome. Man, I could talk to you all day and enjoy your, it's fun. Always fun chatting with you. Love you, Terry Bradshaw. Thanks for coming on.

Thank you so much. Hey, listen. Yes. Okay.

I'm not going to miss this, but you know the 300 grand I needed for the 40, 3,000. Oh. We can do that.

Don't let it get out. All right. Right?

Nice. Be well, Terry. Aloha. Aloha. Aloha. Aloha.

Mahalo for the 10% discount. There you go. There's Terry Bradshaw. That was incredible. I knew I'd ask him the right question about Burt Reynolds.

So good. But Burt did that, I remember he did that bit about how dumb Terry Bradshaw is, right? He couldn't spell cat if you, if you, if you, if you spot him the K, right? Wasn't that Hollywood? Wasn't that the B?

The C and the T. The C and the T. Okay. Yeah. I don't know what, whatever it was and. Something like that. Yeah. I don't know. I might be conflating it.

And that's how he called him up. I'm sorry. Come out.

Let's shoot Hooper. That's dope. And Joe, by the way, of the Smoking the Bandit 2 is Cleco. I believe. Yeah.

All right. So, uh, behind breaks, if the, if you will, we'll be back with more on the rich odds show half hour with Terry Bradshaw. America starts the day with America in the morning. Hi, I'm John Trout, your host for the latest news, politics, entertainment, business, and weather.

In Lake Placid. And then I ended up having the pleasure of working with Alan Ken, a few Olympic games after when I was a commentator. So we consider him part of our team whenever, you know, our team has a reunion and we haven't had many, but we always try to ask Al to come because he's like an extended member of our family. Well, I feel like the mascot.

I'm like the San Diego chicken with you guys. I mean, you guys wrote the script. I just happen to have, you know, the coda on it at the end of the game. But, you know, inside the game itself, Mike, you know, when you think about the fact that people always forget that you guys were able to overcome three deficits, it was one nothing. It was two one. It was three two Soviets. You get the game winning goal, as it turned out, the tie breaking goal of the 10 minute mark. But the other thing is, you well know so much of that game was played in the United States and people forget the Soviets at thirty nine shots on goal in the United States at 16.

All right. And you know, it's funny, I saw the game the other day out for the second time since 1980. It was amazing to watch the last 10 minutes, though, when we took the lead. I think they only had three shots on goal in the last 10 minutes of the game. I was surprised at how well we played once we once we got the lead. And then the other thing that people don't remember and I tell them all the time is we didn't play just one game. You know, we were we were behind against Sweden, we were behind against the Czechs, we were behind against Norway, we were behind two against West Germany, we were behind against Finland and still found a way to come back and win.

Right. I think that's just a testament to you know, we weren't lucky. It wasn't a fluke. We had some pretty good players.

Our speed, our conditioning, our youth all came to to a head right there in our advantage. Our YouTube page, check out for all of our Miracle on Ice coverage. Back here on the Rich Eisen Show, 844-204-RICH is the number to dial. I'm back at the Rich Eisen Show desk, furnished by Grainger with supplies and solutions for every industry. Grainger has the right product for you.

Call or just stop by. Forty four years ago today, this was the moment that occurred in Lake Placid, New York, between the United States men's hockey team and the Soviet Union as called by the great Al Michaels. February 22nd, 1980, Goosebumps, greatest sports moment of the 20th century.

There's nothing that you could argue is bigger than a bunch of amateur hockey players at the time of our world and our country taking care of the Soviets. And back in that day, I remember the game was played in the late afternoon and my brother and I, my older brother, Jeff Eisen, made sure that my mom and dad would not listen to the radio. That we wouldn't check on the traffic and weather together on the eights because it was on tape delay.

They tape delayed it and then showed it that night and the rest of the country found out what had already happened. And I'll just say it. Screw it. In this day and age, if you had gone back then and told everybody what people are talking about right now about Russia and disinformation and supporting democracies fighting against Russia right now and what's happening in our world right now, people would say, really?

The United States? I'll leave it at that on this 44th anniversary. Because then that moment banded the entire country together about the possibility and the greatness of the United States as one. That's what I remember. The pride in seeing Jim Craig looking for his dad draped with, you know, the flag draped on him and Eruzione and beating the Soviets who kicked Team USA's ass all over Madison Square Garden. I was at that game, Rich, the Madison Square Garden game with my uncle and my brother.

It was absolutely a given that the ragtag bunch on skates with USA across the chest was going to go down in flames that night and they didn't. And then, of course, the gold medal game two days later, Saturday's anniversary, because Al Michaels, again, everybody should go down our YouTube page as well. We've had multiple appearances of Al on this day on the anniversary. We hooked him up with Ken Dryden. We just showed a video of him hooking up with Eruzione.

And we love when, and Jim Craig, we had him zoom with Jim Craig, I do believe during COVID. I believe during the 40th anniversary or the 41st anniversary, at any rate, go down our YouTube page because we love talking about this game and talking about it with Al. Al told a story of, I guess, that Herb Brooks told the players after they beat Russia, pardon me, the Soviets, and going out for the gold medal game, you better win this because if you lose this, you'll regret it till you go to your effing graves. No pressure. No pressure.

No pressure at all. Well, I mean, as you know, Herb Brooks did not mince any words with his charges at any rate. Happy anniversary to all the survivors. People are still alive today, I should say, from the team and to Al who said he's going to take this year off in our studio. Next year's 45. We'll be back for that. Miracle on Ice, 44 years ago today. We'll be back with Chris Brockman's news update in a moment here on the Rich Eisen Show.

This photo popped up on my Twitter timeline during a commercial break in hour one, so I sent it home. Do you know that guy on the left is? The Ben Stiller? Ben Stiller? No, that's Tom Thibodeau. Oh, really? What? Ben Stiller.

So Nick Energy says, that's my coach and says, it's official. We need Ben Stiller to play Tom Thibodeau in a film. That's funny.

That's wild. And guess who responded? Ben Stiller.

He wrote back, please. Look at that photo. That's Thibodeau. That really does look like Stiller.

He's playing hoops in a long-came poly. Is that the one? Yeah, so him and Philip Seymour Hoffman. Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Philip Seymour Hoffman. Rain Man. Were they a great scene. Yeah, yeah.

Make it rain. Did he hit a rim once in that scene? No, I don't think so. Philip Seymour Hoffman?

I think he may have hit the backboard once. But look at that Tom Thibodeau right there. Now, Rich. Does look like Ben Stiller. It was. Ben Stiller's saying please, right?

Now, is that a please, like please, I'll do it, or one of your pleases when we say something you think is done and you're like please. Hey, listen. I follow Ben Stiller on Twitter.

Am I right, Chris? Let me tell you, I don't know, I think the only person who posts more about the Knicks than Ben Stiller is Jerry Ferrara. It's true. Right?

Lovely, true. Ben Lyons. Ben Lyons, too. Well, Ben Stiller is a, he's a serious Knicks fan. Yeah, he's a diehard.

So I think he would love to play. That does look like something out of like Dodgeball, doesn't it? Yeah.

Right there? It's Ben Stiller. Or Zoolander.

Or Zoolander had a pickup scene. There's no way that's not Ben Stiller, I'm sorry. Tom Timothy. That is not Tom Timothy. That's Ben Stiller. I mean, look at the short shorts, clearly that's not a current photograph.

Well, Ben Stiller, that's about his era. Yeah. Tim's had some lettuce, man.

Look at that. Nice flow. He did have some flow. And clearly, looking for the foul.

I mean, that's definitely something that Mikey currently does. That's definitely, there's something about Mary heading to the prom, Ben Stiller, right? Yeah, good one. Yes. You know? Very good. Well done, gents.

Frank's amazing. That was coming. You knew where I had no idea. I found that funny. That's great. I thought you might, too. And I am correct. You're a correct sir.

It's good because again, I don't know how NBC news emeritus Tom Brokaw has time to fit in for us. Well, I mean, if Terry Bradshaw is giving us half an hour, we can get Tom Brokaw to just give us a couple seconds to introduce Chris Brockman's news update.

Hit it, hit it, hit it. And now with a report of the day's news from the world of sports and entertainment, someone who is not a journalist or newsman by any definition of the word whatsoever. It's Chris Brockman.

All right. He also sounds like a Dr. Spiceman as well. Well, Chris is an actor, Rich.

That would explain why Tom would lend his voice. I have certificates. I am literally an award winning newsman. All right, guys, remember yesterday- What certificate do you have?

Maine Press Association. Yeah. He won that. Yeah.

3009, column of the year. I miss. Show some respect. Come on. Don't hate on him.

Respect, Brockman. You know what I mean? See?

Why are you laughing at him? Game recognizes game. You see, what happened, but what happened in Maine in 2009 that caused you to hit your keyboard? Oh, man. I wrote a March Madness preview column. One of my finest works.

One of my finest works. That's messed up. That's messed up. All right, so his bona fides have been arranged, and you may now deliver the news, Chris. You think you were like- What do you have? The pilot was a jabron on his house?

Hey, yesterday, out the door, I was like, hey, Antonio Pierce is like, we're going to have some Mahomes rules. He sent it on Max Crosby's podcast. We have the sound. Okay. Roll it. Hit it. We got the Jordan rules, and I'm calling out from now on, as long as I'm here, the Patrick Mahomes rules. So you remember when Jordan was going through it with the Pistons, all those guys in the 80s before he came, Michael Jordan, the Air Jordan, the Pistons used to whoop his... Anytime he came to the home, elbows, feeling them, love taps. We touched them.

We're in the head, mentally, physically, emotionally, spiritually, I'm touching you. So I showed those guys Jordan getting his... whooped, consistently. On the side, I got this screen. I got these two sides, and it's kind of like, this is almost a little gory. We're getting crazy now, right?

It's... bro. We got these two screenshowing of us just getting after it, Raiders versus Chiefs. And then the last one, I showed Muhammad Ali in the 15th round, the 12th round of his fights. Just giving it to him, finishing, finishing. I said, man, when we get to the end, we got to finish him. We got to put him away.

We got to put him away the way we want to put him away. Okay. You know what? I like it. Mm-hmm.

I like it. Gotta do something. He's on his dog's podcast, right? That's his guy. That's it. Best player on the team. No question.

Defensively. I mean, Devante Adams going to the Hall of Fame, and I think Max Crosby has that dog in him where he wants to go to the Hall of Fame, too. Did you see him watching the Chiefs win the Super Bowl?

He didn't have any reaction at all, because deep down, I think he's just like, really? In our house, the Chiefs are going to pick up the red and gold confetti? Listen, Antonio Pierce, this is part of the reason why he's the coach right now, because they bought what he was selling, and he beat the Chiefs on Christmas. That basically stamped it. That was like, okay, we're going to remove an interim tag at some point.

That's what I thought. Max Crosby kind of helped seal it by saying, if he's not here, I don't want to be here. And I think after the last interim head coach was let go, and they brought in Josh McDaniels to lead to this, makes sense to get Antonio Pierce.

But if you don't think the Chiefs are seeing this and saying, cannot wait till our schedule is out, and we know when we're playing the Raiders, that thing will be on and cracking. And Antonio Pierce knows he's just upped that ante, too. And he's putting it out there, and that's the new way of coaching.

It's no mistake that he and Prime are repped by the same outstanding Hall of Fame individual as well. Our friend, Con Schwartz. That's a similar coaching style.

I'm going to put it out there. Dion, like if we didn't have two incompletions, the Heisman would already be in the crib. Didn't he say that in the halftime interview of his first game coaching, right? Against TCU.

Speak it into existence, but you know when you try to speak it into existence, the person against whom you're trying to speak it into existence hears it, too. All the Chiefs are not going to like that at all. And you know, Mahomes is going to take that, internalize it, and try and use it. And in a way, he's kind of helped the Chiefs get through two regular season games that might otherwise have, as Terry Bradshaw said in the first hour, somebody who's been through trying to go three-peat, get a little bored during the regular season waiting for the playoffs to hit. Okay. But I like it. That's the way he, that's the way he became the coach.

The interim tag removed. I'm sure the Raiders nation must love it, too. I'm sure they'll lead it up. It's red meat. But you know what? You know also has red? The Chiefs. Yeah, that's the problem. What else, Chris?

What else you got? All right. I saw this, Rich. Eagles, we know they were a disaster down the stretch. This is from Derek Gunn, who covers the team. According to his sources, Jalen Hurts, big contract, pulled him in numerous directions on and off the field and put him under a lot of pressure that he didn't handle well. Also, Big Dom, that was a big story late in the year. Him being suspended, he controls Nick Sirianni's emotions on the sideline in his absence.

Nick got in numerous arguments with players and coaches during games. Big Dom being the security official who stepped in. That was against the Niners, right? Yeah. Made contact with a player and then he got the gate. Big Dom got sent off and then got suspended for the rest of the year. Eagles tank after that.

So let me just say this. First of all, if Jalen Hurts needs to refocus, that would be surprising because his focus has never been in question. But secondly, if Nick Sirianni needs the head of security there to be his counterbalance of his personality, what a major problem that is. What a major red flag that is. I cannot imagine that if this is the case, that Jeffrey Lurie and Howie Roseman wouldn't have known about this and they would have kept him. Because if that's the case, that's nuts.

I've never heard of anything like such a thing like that. And maybe we're just trying to search for the reasons why the Eagles fell apart. Maybe they just weren't that good. Ten and one good at one point. I know that. Hey, when the one is against Zach Wilson and the Jets, that should be a red flag too.

Knocked me out of Survivor. All right, two quick items, guys. Buffalo Bills. This is Rich.

This is you. I was looking for your name on this list. The competition committee has two new members. Bills head coach Sean McDermott. Rams head coach Sean McVeigh on the competition committee.

No Rich Eisen. I was looking through the press release. I got to talk to people.

What happened? There should be a fan's chair, and I would be the fan's chair in the competition committee. But you're not a fan.

I'm being dead serious. You're more than a fan. Oh, I know you are.

Excuse me. I'm a fan, and I'm a representative of the fans. That's what makes this show what it is.

It's also because when I say that this show, the best thing about us is about us, I'm including the fans in us. How dare you? Well, I thought you...

I looked at you as a professional. No, but at least I can text McVeigh and tell him, let's get rid of this rule. And Bears head coach Matt Eberflus talked to the media today.

Eberflus! Said that he will serve as the defensive play caller in 2024. That's right.

I would have a problem if not. If you're going to be keeping your defensive mind at head coach after they just balled out on defense when he was calling the plays, and you're going to keep him, despite having the first overall pick for a unicorn on offense, you better... Yeah, Eberflus, you're calling the plays. Good news update, Chris. Hey, thanks guys. Going out the door. Let's do it. Really appreciate that. You got it. Jeffrey Wright, it's up for an Academy Award.

We're going to win it for him when he's here tomorrow. It's called the Rich Eisen Show Bump because it's about the fans. The Rolling Stone Music Now podcast gets inside the biggest stories with Rolling Stone's senior writer Brian Hyatt. And here's Lil Yachty with Tierra Whack. I've never been to a fashion show.

I never did any pairs fashion week, New York fashion week, and I'll tell you why. Because I would always go to events and people would say to me, oh man, Yachty, man, I love your music, bro. And I should be like, what song? I didn't even... At the time, I didn't love my music. I always feel like I'm in a room with all these artists and they all respect each other. I feel like no one respects me. Rolling Stone Music Now, wherever you listen.
