This is the Rich Eisen Show. Come on, man. We're waiting. I love this guy, but let's go, bro.

Live from the Rich Eisen Show studio in Los Angeles. We know we got a good team. We're not perfect and we know we gotta be better.

I've been making excuses for Tatum for the last five years. Put your stamp on it because Anthony Edwards is taking all your shine. Earlier on the show, Lions General Manager Brad Holmes, voice of the NBA on ESPN, Mike Breen. Coming up from CBS's CSI Vegas, actor Paul Anusum. And now, it's Rich Eisen.

Yep, that's it. Hour number three of the Rich Eisen Show is on the air. I just had a nice chat with Chicago's finest, Paula Anusum.

She's a big time Chicago lander, as they say. CSI Vegas series finale airs this coming Sunday, so they're wrapping up. I guess there'll be no crime scene to investigate in Vegas any longer. It's all good now. And so, you can catch up on all seasons of CSI Vegas available on Paramount Plus, which you can see right here. Speaking of Paramount Plus, that video we had made of when Thomas Lennon came by telling the story of Sir Patrick Stewart in the Super Bowl commercial for Paramount Plus. That's going crazy right now on an Instagram feed right now. Right.

Closing in on two and a half million views. Yeah, Thomas Lennon is so funny. Talking about Sir Patrick Stewart. Talking about how if he was wearing makeup on his legs because he was wearing the white go-go boots and short shorts of Lieutenant Dangle. New boot goofing.

Again, at Rich Eisen Show for all of your social media needs, except for TikTok, which is at The Rich Eisen Show. Sort of that's the Ohio State in me. Yeah, does that anger you? No, it doesn't. That it's an Ohio State thing?

I don't know if you're aware of this. Nothing angers me right now about that. Nothing. There's a lot of chirping that just goes in one ear and out the other. I understand. You know?

Actually, it doesn't go out the other because the other ear is plugged with a championship ring. You know what I mean? Oh God, it's so great. I'm living my best life right now.

I sure am. Living my best life. It's so great.

So listen, before we get to overreaction Monday, we'll take some phone calls in a second. How was Mother's Day? What'd you do for Mother's Day?

It was great. We went down to Legoland and spent the weekend down there. What was the most elaborate build that you saw at Legoland? It's been a while since Susan and I took the kids to Legoland because it skews young Legoland.

It skews young. It's not as intense as Disney or some of the other theme parks, which is more my speed. Yes. They have the thing called Miniland where it's just a bunch of small cities. Like replicas of cities that they built. Did they have the El Segundo build?

Did you see that? They had the Inglewood build. They had a full SoFi, which was 30 feet long. Is there an Intuit Dome under construction there?

No. They had the NFL Network. They had the Hollywood Bowl. They had a Vegas strip. It was incredible.

Legoland is impressive. So Sarah's hanging out with Cage in Legoland on Mother's Day or you were coming back home? We did a few hours in the morning at the park. We kind of redid some rides and went on a couple we didn't get to. And then we drove back yesterday. And then we ordered some takeout. We were in the pool watching the baseball and the NBA playoffs. Very relaxing.

Very good. What did you guys do? We went to breakfast and brought the dogs to breakfast because it was an outdoor scene. Were they those people?

No, we're not those people. The number of people that were delighted to see our dogs. Delighted to see our two wonderful lady, you know, golden and white English golden. They're very well behaved. Better than you, I'm sure, at a table in manners. Don't come at my dogs.

Do they ask for free drinks? And then we went to Taylor's basketball game. A game on Mother's Day?

Wow. Yeah, we went to her game. I think she might have scored. She didn't know.

We didn't check the books. She might have scored double digits. One thing she did do is, my baby daughter, Euro stepped yesterday. She did. She did.

Because we're constantly telling her to keep her dribble going. She picked her dribble up and then she took a left foot and she Euro stepped to the hoop. Almost had an and one. Love it.

Had lunch with my mom and the kids. Lovely. And then sat by the pool.

That's the way to do it. It's kind of funny. Listen, whatever you want to do is whatever Suze wants to do on Mother's Day.

It's kind of interesting that more than not, for Father's Day, the best present for a father is to be just left alone. Silence is going on. Invariably, it's the US Open final round. Baseball maybe. I don't know. Some of them do want to be left alone. Yeah, moms like to do stuff and be active. And be with the kids. I don't care. Be with the family.

And then dads are just like, can I just get a day to myself? You would want to just like tee it up, right? Right.

I don't know. Or just watch them tee it up. Play a little golf and then relax. Yeah. You know, it's PGA Championship week. You got to get ready.

You got to watch Rory win it all this weekend. Fingers crossed. I don't know. It's just the difference between Father's Day and Mother's Day. Like, hey, if they didn't say to me, what do you want to do on Father's Day? I'm like, nothing. Nothing. I honestly would have no plans. You know, order in.

I don't want you to go out. Order in. Exactly.

And just like, let's sit around. Yep. Wired differently. I don't know. Yeah. I don't know what that is. I don't know why it is.

It just is. Did you go over to Ashton and Mila's house yesterday for Mother's Day? I love Rich. I did not.

I love Rich. You did not? I didn't go any... I mean, talk to... You FaceTimed your mom? I talked to my mom, my sister. You know, I text Mila, but I text a bunch of moms. Okay. I text your wife, Happy Mother's Day.

I know. That's very nice of you to do that. I text a bunch of moms, but I had a headache most of the day, so I just cooled out.

She had a headache most of the day and texted mothers. That's what you did. That was it. That was your Sunday. That was my Sunday, man.

Delta. I had a rare day off. Meaning?

I was off. So did you visit your buddy's vinyl collection? No, I went out... Mike?

That's in Jersey. That's mine. That's your vinyl collection. I gave him my 8,000 records. Oh. I gave him my collection. By the way, great photograph.

It's a great photograph you posted. Half a guy's face. Yeah, half of space. Yeah, that's why he sent that to me. I'm like, what are you doing? Oh, so you didn't even take the picture.

No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. Oh, but your friend sent you a photograph of him with your vinyl collection. That's part of it. And then you're like, you know what, I'm just gonna post it and get double the likes that I got of a video of my buddy Sydney in the Carolinas for St. Jude. I mean, honestly, I'm putting out beautiful fundraising videos.

Hold on a second. But my photo, I think, won out of the photo. Of course it did, because you paid for it.

What do you mean? No, I had like 400 above the 400. So I had a lot. Oh, by the way... So that's what happens when we promote that you have it on the show and our real listeners and viewers add to your fake followers.

That doubles your... 757. That was fun. I was off. I had a good day.

Okay. But anyway, happy Mother's Day to all your mothers out there. And to all you dads. I think Jim Gaffigan tweeted like, happy pre-Father's Day, everybody. That's what he said yesterday. And I'm like, way to stake your crown, Jim. Five weeks.

Because he would agree. Like on Father's Day, just like nothing. I don't have any plans. There's no plans. No plans. I don't have to go anywhere.

No plans. Why do we need to go somewhere? Arnett and Marilyn's been hanging on for a while. What's up, Arnett? What's going on? How you doing? How are you? What's up? All right.

I'm steady out of work for this. I love this show. I've been watching it for years. Okay. I just had to say, not even a Ravens, I'm a Packers fan, but it is blasphemous how Lamar Jackson has gotten treated. I saw the CBS rankings that came out. Okay.

It's sixth behind Stroud and Burrow and Allen. For what? For what?

For what? Fantasy? Quarterback rankings.

Oh, okay. Power rankings. He has a winning record against Josh Allen, winning record against Joe Burrow.

He's a two-time MVP, two-time first team All-Pro. Those guys don't have a lick of that on their resume. Joe Burrow has won Linsanity run to the Super Bowl and they lost. Linsanity run for Joe Burrow. Arnett.

Whoa. He still doesn't have that on his resume. Lamar has a higher career passer rating and quarterback rating than Josh Allen.

It's not even a discussion. He has one peer and it's Patrick Mahomes. He's led them to the first seed, what, three, four, five, three years in a row? But he hasn't even played.

He doesn't even... Listen, and I can't believe I'm doing this, Arnett, but I'll just give you a little pushback because you used a Jeremy Lin analogy for Joe Burrow, which I think is a little harsh, you know? But Burrow's done it. Burrow has beaten Mahomes in a playoff game. Burrow made the Super Bowl. Burrow had an opportunity with the ball in his hand to win a Super Bowl. Lamar's never made it.

Lamar hasn't gotten past Mahomes in the playoffs, you know? And that's part of the reason why he may have a lower power ranking in whatever website you're on, you know? It was a CBS ranking.

I don't know if you're allowed to talk about other networks on here. Oh, I don't care. It's all good. But Nick Wright had his rankings and, I mean, he had some- No, I don't want to talk about Nick Wright. No, I'm just kidding.

No, I hear you, man. But by the way, thanks for the call, Arnett. Just to back the play here on the page 14 of the 38-page NFL Network schedule release show research packet, highest quarterback win percentage since 1970, that's the Super Bowl era, minimum 50 starts, number one, would you care to guess, highest winning percentage of any quarterback? Patrick Mahomes? Correct.

74 and 22. Huh. She's won 77% of his games. Is that good?

Start his career. Huh. That boy good. He good. Number two, you want to guess who number two is? Josh Allen? Probably Brock Purdy. Nope.

The minimum 50 starts. Oh, Dad Prescott. Incorrect.

It's not even top five. Oh, really? Oh, wow. Lamar Jackson. Starbuck is the Dallas quarterback. No, he's three. Lamar.

Brady? 58 and 19, correct. Come on, people.

251 and 82. Wow. I thought we were doing active. No, no, no. No, no, no.

Starbuck and Montana round out the top five. Oh, yeah. For some reason, I was thinking current.

Oof. Yeah, I was thinking current. The CBS list that Arnett was referring to, Patrick Mahomes, number one, Brock Purdy, number two. I mean... Josh Allen, three, Joe Burrow, CJ Stroud, Lamar, six.

That's just to get somebody. I mean, Purdy's my guy, right? But you got to be kidding me, please, because honestly, Purdy's all yoked up now, right? I mean, so which is great for him. And I love him, but you can't sit here and tell me you're going to take Lamar Jackson.

You take him over Lamar Jackson in a game that you got to win right now, straight up. Brock Purdy? Yeah. Brock Purdy just... Why? Come on. I... Come on, man. I forgot with you, Brock.

I was four minutes from the Super Bowl. I totally get it. I mean, I'm not the huge Purdy defender, but what do you mean?

He's just begun to... He went into the Super Bowl with even folks like you who is defending him right now, which is role reversal right now. We're all like, you still have to see what he can do with the game on the line.

You know what I mean? Any of us won. Any of us won. He almost won it. And the talent that he had surrounding him, the receivers, the running back. For real, man.

For real. Plus, he didn't win MVP twice. All of a sudden, it does seem, and Arnett has a point, when it comes to MVPs in Lamar, it's like it doesn't matter as much. No, it's just... No, because Lamar has won two playoff games in his career right now, two, correct?

Two. And that's it. And as of right now, he has the accolades for regular season, but when it all comes down to it, we just may be seeing him and Burrow and Herbert, right? And now, Rodgers, late in his career, and Allen and Dak and Purdy, we may just be seeing a collection of people like Malone and... Barkley. Ewing. Starks.

No, no. Stockton. No, Stockton, right. Yeah, right.

Reggie Miller. Right, all of them. Yeah. The wrong time. You picked the wrong time... We were living on the same page, right? try and win it all. You just chose the wrong time.

You're an heir of the hoops. And you just got to hope that Mahomes tries baseball like his dad. I tell that to Steelers. I don't know. We may see that by the end of the day. We may be seeing that.

That's all. I'm talking to the other fans all the time who want to complain about Tom. And I'm like, he just lived in the era of Belichick. And that just... Yeah, but at least he broke through with Big Ben.

He broke through with one, yeah. But I'm just saying, you had Belichick and Brady. That's tough. And Peyton. You had to play them every year.

They were in the playoffs every year. Right. Like, Peyton was the Mickelson to Brady's Tiger. Yeah.

You knew you were going to Foxbarrow or they were coming to you. At least Peyton broke through twice. Peyton is the Elijah one to Brady's Jordan, if you think about it. Oh, yeah. Peyton is one and a half Super Bowls. I mean, come on. The second one. Dude, you keep saying that.

What are you doing? You had eight touchdowns that year. I mean, he's still a threat.

Listen, I'm not here to slander anybody. And that includes Lamar or Brock Purdy, who, you know, again, we pounded the table for him. But to have him as this... I know he made the Super Bowl last year. But we need to see it again before we start including him as, like, the second best to Mahomes. Come on. I mean, if they play each other again, you give it to them. I mean, they have the second best team to Mahomes, where he also is a terrific quarterback at the controls of it. And we'll see what happens now that he's got more body weight.

And we assume he won't look like he's going to, you know, a history class. All right. I'm going to put up a poll. Oh. Who's the second best quarterback in the league?

Oh, that would be tough. OK. Are you going to put names, or are you just going to leave it open ended? No, I'm going to put names. You got to put names. You got to put names. I'm going to put Purdy, Allen, Lamar, and Burrow. Those are the four.

Allen, Lamar. Yeah. Yeah. What do you keep whispering Dak for?

What are you doing over there? Because T.J. wants Dak on that. He's assuming I'm going to say that. Dak should be on that. I mean, no. Not out of those four. I know. I'm not going to argue that point.

I'm with T.J. with that. I'm going to say that just, you know, just to be funny. But you know, there's nothing funny about it these days, is it? They're all in. There isn't.

I'm sorry. There's just not, man. We're going to find out. That cowboy schedule, when it comes out, it's going to be lit. Wait till we see it. Wait till we see it. And then you're going to make me predict the record way too early, like you make me do every year.

And then I'm going to be one game over or under. And then everyone on YouTube is going to tell me I'm crazy, and then they're going to hit that number. What do you care what people say on YouTube? Honestly, like, what do you care? Do you care?

I'm a man of the people. I just already established last hour that I just finally saw a tweet that somebody threw in my direction about turning my coverage of the draft off. You know, like 15 days later, honestly, I thought that comment was one of Del Tufo's fake Instagram.

Fake Twitter. Can you believe he posts a friend, a friend of his, a terrible photograph from his friend that nobody knows, nobody knows of boxes of vinyl. You can't even see, I thought this was Jeff Garland the first time, honestly, I don't even know.

And it looks like Mike Gulick, honestly. And that gets like, that gets liked more than anything else that we post. And it's just absurd. Look, I try not to let Instagram affect how I feel. I know sometimes I'll post something good and I'll get 32, like I've got 12,000 followers.

You mean 32 people? That's it. Did you ask him to take pictures of your old vinyl collection or you just did it for himself?

What's the genesis? He did it because I wanted to see that they made it there. My brother. Mike, you did kind of put the story in the caption, nobody read the caption. Nobody reads captions.

I read it because I knew it. Let's take a break here. Overreaction Monday is how we're going to finish up this show. Paula Newsome is going to come out next. CSI Vegas series finale of it.

Paula will also tell some stories from her Barry Days, a Chicagoland individual coming out on the Rich Eisen Show set here in El Segundo on Roku and this Rich Eisen Show terrestrial radio affiliate series, XM Odyssey and more.

That's slash Eisen. Back on the Rich Eisen Show, we just saw a clip of CSI Vegas. Paula Newsome is here in studio. It is good to see you. How are you? How are you doing? Really good.

Rich Eisen. So I referred to one of your co-stars, Marg Helgenberger, as a diehard Panther fan and you corrected me. Yes.

I'm now a Kansas City Chiefs fan. Is that bad? No, it's not. It's just kind of, you know, just wondering like when she might've flipped here. You know, I mean. Probably has something to do with Patrick Mahomes, huh? I'm not mad at the girl.

It's a good idea. I know that. Your co-star from Barry, Mr. Winkler, is it? What's his team? Does he have a team? Well, it's Mahomes.

And now. He's Mahomes too. He loves Mahomes. He was there two June's ago, talked about how much he loves Patrick Mahomes. We said we can make this thing happen and they met.

They met one another. Okay. I'm a Kansas City Chiefs fan. I'm not mad. I'm not mad.

No, wait a minute. You're from Chicago, doesn't. And I have no team. What do you mean you have no team?

What are you talking about? I'm from Chicago. But you don't.

I don't have a team. He understands. Am I lying? Well, I think your fortunes are about to change. Yeah. About to change. Don't do it.

Don't do it. I jumped at 87. I was two. Oh, 87. But I jumped at 87.

Okay. So you got to the Super Bowl and left. I'm telling you, Mike did good. God bless him. God bless him.

He did the best he could, but he truly gave away a Super Bowl team. Am I lying? Well, yeah. I hear you. That would mean, no, I'm not lying, people.

No, I know. So you're just, you're just, wow. I've been burned. You've been burned too many times. Well, now you've got to, let's bring you back to the fold here. It's a good time to come back. I'm folding down in Kansas City.

She's got a point, guys. I'm folding in Kansas City. Well, the Bears just drafted Caleb Williams, who is supposedly the next Mahomes. So if you have the next Mahomes, wouldn't you want to be in on the Chicago Bears right now? I'll give them five years. Okay.

And away from the sidelines, cheering them on very valiantly. Fantastic. It was rough. Come on. No. So which side of Chicago are you from? South Side. You're South Sider.

I'm South Sider. Okay. So now were you a Bulls fan, basically?

But you know what? No. Okay. So I left Chicago and traveled and was in New York and traveled and did theater all over the world. Sure.

My parents and my family had season tickets to the Bulls during Michael's reign. Oh my goodness. Can you imagine?

Wow. And you know what's so funny about it? What was so funny about it? It is my father, he would sit back and he'd talk about like, oh, I don't want to go tonight. Get these tickets to somebody else. Because he just, you know, they had seasons tickets for 145 years.

And so... But I never got a chance to go because I was traveling and going to college or whatnot. Oh, okay. So when Jordan was winning rings in the United Center or the old Chicago stadium, your family had season tickets.

Yes, they did. Oh my God. Isn't that amazing?

Oh my gosh. I saw a hockey game in Chicago stadium when I was in college at Michigan. And that was one of my favorite old school barn buildings in Chicago.

There was nothing like a winning Chicago team. Right. You know, it's just, it is a cultural, like it's in the blood. Yes. It's in the blood, the joy that we get. Right.

Obviously in a parade on Michigan Avenue too is the ultimate, if you can do that. So how did you get started in acting, Paula? This is the strangest thing in the world. My second grade teacher, Mrs. Doris Williams, sent me home with a note pinned to my blouse that said, put Paula in creative dramatics class.

And that's the cutest thing in the world. She called it creative dramatics. Now, but my mom is a public school teacher for many, many, many, many moons. She wouldn't like the number of many's I just said. We don't say that. We don't talk about many's. Understood.

And I just saw her yesterday. But it strikes me that that might've been due to some of your conduct in class that might've led to the pinning of a note for that such a thing. Not much different than who I am today, probably, except maybe, no, maybe not the goal too. Right. Maybe.

Maybe. So did something happen in class? It was just, I was a bit of a firebug, you know, and what was so great, you know, people talk about teachers can change your, you know, she sent me and then my parents sent me to the Avalon YMCA because we're black folks on the South side of Chicago and that's where you seeing your kids when they tell them to put them in creative dramatics. So I went to the, uh, what are the, and we did like, uh, we pretended all kinds of stuff and that's how it started. And that's how it started.

Yes. So then when did you get your first paycheck as a working, as a working actress? I got my first paycheck when I was doing summer stock. It was $35 a week at Mainstage Repertory Theater in St. Louis, outside of St. Louis and Lake of the Ozarks. Lake of the Ozarks.

Lake of the Ozarks. So like, like Ozark, the television show? Yeah. Yeah. Hopefully not a lot of that stuff that was happening in that show.

Not that I know of. Okay. I can neither confirm, neither confirm nor deny. It's kind of wild. Like, cause I started watching, I was watching Ozark and Barry at the same time pretty much.

And it was, that's some of the darkest TV that's out there. That's out there. How did you get connected with Barry? Paula? You know, I'm a working actress. I got a call and I went in and I did an audition and I, you know, most of the time when you do an audition, you know, when it's like, it's, it's whether it's a booking, whether it's good. I was like, okay, that's good.

That's good. I got another call. They wanted me to meet Henry, not Henry, excuse me. They wanted me to meet Bill and Alec Byrd. Yes.

And I was like, can't they watch the tape? And I went back in and had a great time. And that's how I got hooked up with Barry.

Right. You weren't in too many comic scenes though, for Barry. What do you mean? Well, I mean, you were in some serious scenes, like some serious, dramatic, wild, off the wall, nutty scenes. But what, when you, when did you meet Henry Winkler? We had on our first table read. You see, I didn't know that they had already shot the pilot.

Okay. I thought that we were just starting off all together and we did this table read. We had a table read for all, for all of the episodes and everybody was sitting around the table. And you know, you meet Henry, you know, it's like he's, he's, he's, he's in walking icon, you know, and it was the strangest thing in the world. You know, it's like, he has a dialogue bubble above his set. It's like, I am an icon, but he's just a friendly schmo.

He's just a, a, a, a mensch who's kind and you know what I mean? And so funny, you know, and, and, and so we did the table read and that's when I met Henry and everybody else. And I was like, these are funny.

I was like, what am I going to do with all this? And that scene, that was, that was one of my favorites because it's, it was just, it's like tennis. You hit the ball that you're dealt, right? And the two of us just were, were equally yoked, can I say, you know, and it made it easy. His, his connection are at the writing, which the writing on that thing.

It took like that first season was, oh Lord, it was just stellar. And between that and working with somebody like Henry, it's, it's a joy and it makes it easy. Yeah. He is just a very sweetheart giving, you know, light from inside type individual that we've met here a couple of times in the show. And then you're right. He is an icon. Certainly when he came in here and the lights were off and he just knocked the wall and the lights came back on. You're lying. Of course.

But you can't put it past the phones, you know what I mean? He's an amazing guy. He's a, he had, it feels to me like he's got a, a Dharma to like just lean into being kind to people. Right. You know what I mean? But Sherritt, is that a word? Yes.

That he would use as a matter of fact, it's meant to be. Yeah. But that's his, you know, you know? Yeah.

And I. Did you pick up the Yiddish from Henry Winkler? I spent six years in New York and I had a friend of mine, I had a friend of, I had a friend of mine who, uh, he's African American.

Her dad is African American and her mom is Jewish. Yes. And she taught me all kinds of things like Nadeschkeit, you know, Nadeschkeit? Sure. I know. I know. You spent what?

Six years in New York. Yes. That's my mother. You picked up on some things. A few things.

Yeah. I learned, uh, Becherit, Nadeschkeit. Look at you. What is it? There was another word. Uh, what, what?

The word for what? I don't know. Careful.

Cause it could be. I'll be good. I know. It's kind of funny.

I love it. Yeah. And so CSI Vegas series finale, huh? Yeah. Yeah. We're wrapping up the crime scene investigation. Wrapping up the series.

Las Vegas, Nevada. Isn't it amazing? Yeah. It's an iconic series for you to, to be a part of as well.

Right? I will tell you, I will tell you, so I was coming home from Pilates. I didn't know nothing about no CSI Vegas. I'm a Los Angeles actress.

My job is to go to Pilates, go home and drink some water and buy my business. And I got a call from my agent and she was, she was like, they're offering you CSI Vegas and dah, dah, dah, dah, dah. And I'm like, who's they? And that's when it started, you know? And it's been an amazing, amazing run to do this with, you know, Georgia and Billy, who's also a Chicago actress like me, you know, and, and, and Marg, you know, and some people that came through like Rob Morgan and Regina Taylor, it's, it's just been, it's been amazing to be part of an, of an epic, iconic television series.

Did you pick up anything about crime scene investigation? Not a bit. You're just that good of an actress?

Just that good of an actress, memorized. No. What did I pick up? You didn't go out on any sort of? I didn't do that. That's not my jam. I'm not going to do that.

What do you mean it's not your jam? I'm not going to go look at no dead bodies. That's not my thing. I'll pretend. Okay. I can't do that. That's what you do for a living. Well, it's funny that we, we've definitely not done Pilates together.

Cause if we did, you'd, you'd recognize a dead body right over here. Thank you. I want to talk about football. Let me tell you something. You want to talk about football? I want to talk about football. I want to talk about, my sister and I have a name for Bill Belichick and what's his name?

The other guy, the quarterback that just, Tom Brady, exactly. And that is what? Oh, careful.

Lucifer and the son of Perdition. Why do you say that? Because I'm from Chicago. We don't have a team.

But you don't have a team. We're envious. That's right. I'll just tell the truth. All right. Well right now, they're in purgatory right now. So don't worry. They're not good anymore. Don't worry.

They're, they're exactly where you want them to be right now. It's nice. See, let me just tell this to you.

You should, you should give your Chicago Bears another shot. 1985. I understand that. I totally get that. And I've... 1969 for Rich.

1969 for me, and then again, he's a Patriot fan, so look at New York Jets, New York Jets. You want to talk about being without a team? Oh. Yeah, I know. I do deserve a hug. Yes.

So listen, I'm just telling you that things are, things are cooking. For who? For the Bears right now.

Yeah, but... To the point where you might just be able to just sit back. Jay Cutler. No, I hear you. Yeah, he was pretty good. No, I mean, he was good on that bicycle. Am I lying? He was better on that bicycle, exactly. Wow.

Don't offer me. I'm just telling the truth. He was rotten. Better walking around the Grove the next week? No, Rodeo Drive.

It wasn't the Grove. No, and by the way, it was two days later. Yeah. Yeah. He wasn't?

After he was on that bike and they got eliminated, he came here, and because, you know, he was living here, and I think it was he met him. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. So he came here, and I think was he married to Kristin Kavaler at that point in time? If any of them married in time, yeah.

And paparazzi saw him limping around Rodeo Drive. So, wasn't a good look. Totally understand why you would wear the emotional scars the way that you currently do. Oh, totally.

I'm just saying that you need to just turn a page and sit tight, because I think it's going to turn for you. Why? Why do you say that? Because the kid that they drafted is that talent.

It's only one person. I understand that. I just think that the rest of the team is built ready to make sure that this kid is going to succeed. Do they have an O-line?

They have a better O-line, they've got wide receivers, they've got a defense, than last year. That's not saying a lot. I know that, I know that.

So I understand why you're taking this approach. I'm just trying to leave you in a better spot than I have found you. That's all I'm saying. You a New York Jets fan.

That ain't saying a lot, Rich Seth Eisen, shoot. I'm using your name. I've used all the names. She saw, she saw, she met my diploma. That's how she knows my middle name.

Up the street from Chicago. This is the first, you're the first guest to drop my middle name on this program. All three of the names. What's your middle name?

I don't have one. Well, Paula Newsome, this has been a delight. Thank you for coming on and congrats on the series finale and really enjoyed you and Barry as well.

And I want to say I was such, I watched that NFL, you guys in the morning on Sundays, religiously. Thank you. And I just, I just really, I loved, you have this vibe, this good naturedness that was such a pleasure and just being here and talking to you, even though you're a Jets fan. It's just a pleasure to meet you. Well, Paula, it is, as they would say, beshirt. Thanks for coming on here. Thank you, Rich. At the real Paula Newsome on Instagram. And again, check out CSI Vegas, the series finale that airs Sunday, 10 Eastern on CBS.

Last minute tickets, lowest price guaranteed. Where did Stefan come from? Did that, uh, that came from, uh, two things.

John Mulaney wrote that with me and John, I, it deserves a lot of credit for Stefan because he wrote so much of the rhythm of that and the, and the specifics of it. And clearly I found it funny because I laughed every time we did it. I don't think we ever did it where I didn't laugh. John will put in different things or he'll tell me as I'm walking out, I'll tell you, I know you're not supposed to laugh at this stuff and break in the middle of a scene, but I broke every time.

Yeah. The first time was that we had a club promoter named amnesia, burned Bernstein, and it didn't really get anything. And then he goes, amnesia, Bernstein didn't really get anything. And then he goes, I'll change it to something else. And then as I was walking out, he goes, I changed amnesia, Bernstein to gay Leota. And I started laughing.

So the minute I roll out, I'm like, all right. The other one was, uh, sorry. The other one that made me laugh was he said, he'll change a little things. We had a, we had, we had written a, uh, uh, also at the club was, um, a two-year-old ultimate fighter, Julie lips Jackson. He's got fists like empanadas and he's addicted to ecstasy.

That's what we wrote. And then he wrote, so it was like two-year-old, uh, two-year-old, two-year-old ultimate fighter, Julie lips Jackson. Uh, he's got fence, like he's got fist, like empanadas and they turned the cue card and said, he's my best friend.

He's my best friend, but I lost it. I was like, John behind the cue cards. And I can see him in Sandburg up against the wall, just watching me laughing, like dude. Oh man, bill haters appearances here.

Fantastic. All on our YouTube page, slash rich eyes and show for our full show archive back on the rich eyes and show radio network sitting at the rich eyes and show desk furnished by Grainger with supplies and solutions for every industry Grainger has the right product for you. Call click or just stop by our poll question that you popped up there based on the conversation sparked by one of our callers complaining about little Lamar Jackson slander is what, what do you got over there? Chris? Who's the second best quarterback in the league?

People saying, I forgot my homes on the list. People he's first. He's first. Who's the second best. You should have just written my homes is the best quarterback in the NFL. It was the second. Then you get pushed back saying, well, how do you, why would you say he's the first quarter?

So just don't, we're just look past it. Look past the mentions, Josh Allen, Joe burrow, Lamar, and Brock Purdy, 7% Purdy, Brock Purdy, 21%. What are the other choices? Lamar Allen and burrow, Allen burrow. I'm going to say Lamar is 21%, 21% Lamar Jackson.

And then I will go, what's the next 35% Josh Allen, Josh Allen, 37%. I'm telling you a guy who has only finished half of his NFL seasons. Joe burrow. Oh, is that the way we're short-handing Joe burrow now?

By stating facts? The only quarterback on that list who's made a Super Bowl from the AFC. The only one on the list period who's beaten my homes in the playoffs. Coming from 18 points down in our hood.

That's another way. These are all ways to refer to Joe burrow. Husband trophy winner, first overall pick Joe burrow. Husband trophy winner, two time league MVP, Lamar Jackson.

That's another way to refer to him. Just saying. Four minutes from winning a Super Bowl, Brock Purdy.

I don't kind of like your tone. A guy who's never made the AFC championship game, Josh Allen. Careful, careful. Facts.

They made it, they lost. Who would you choose from that list? Second best quarterback in the National Football League is, who is it? Second best quarterback. Who would you choose from this list then? Because you know who I'm choosing.

I think I would take Josh Allen. Okay. Purdy. I mean just this list? Yes. Oh, okay. Because obviously there's no Dak, there's no Jalen Hurts.

You know where I would go. No, no. There's no Herbert. Stafford, no Hurts, no Herbert, no any of them.

Look, man. Or Aaron Rodgers. Two MVPs, that tells me, yeah, it might not, something in the playoffs is more than just one player.

So I'm going with Lamar on this one. Okay. Game time tickets. Make sure that you get this app on your phone and start looking at tickets. I'm looking at baseball games right now. Oh, you are? Well, the Yankees are coming to town, sir. Oh, yeah.

Last minute tickets, lowest price guaranteed. All right, Chris, it's a Monday. Hey, Rich. It's time for it. Hit it. Let's go. That was terrible. That was crap.

That was garbage. This place sucks. Overreaction Mondays, Monday. Let's go. Let's go. Hey, everybody. Let's go.

Let's overreact. I'm good. I'm good. I'm good. I'm rested. I'm good. I got 600 likes. I'm good.

All right. We know who's playing in the season kickoff. It's Chiefs. It's Ravens.

One of those two teams will represent the AFC in the Super Bowl this year. An overreaction. It's an overreaction. Why? I've got three of the last four champions. I got it. And then the team that hosted the AFC Championship game last year. Okay.

Invariably, you could take the field. It's an overreaction to say this is it. It's an overreaction. There's red in the logo this year. Oh, God, whatever. I think there's a little bit of purple with New Orleans. Oh, God, whatever.

There's a purple in there. I believe these two teams are excellent. I believe they will make the playoff field. I believe that they have the best shots entering the campaigns to win their divisions.

I get it. Let's see what the Texans look like. Let's see what the AFC East looks like. Let's see who stays healthy from the AFC West.

Let's see how the Chargers with Harbaugh at the controls. I don't know if you understand what day it is. It's today. Okay. And today is overreaction Monday.

I'll just call this an overreaction at present. What else, Chris? Okay.

All right. We talked to the Lions general manager earlier in this show. I remember last year on the season kickoff, the Lions were in it.

We were all like, hmm, that's weird. It's the NFL schedule release this week. I'm going to say the Lions are going to have the most NFC primetime games this year.

Texans most in the AFC. I think that's an overreaction. I think the league likes to look at coming teams. Are you saying throw them in primetime games? Are you saying that these are that they're going to because again, you can max out on your primetime games. And are you saying that no one else in the NFC or the AFC will have more than them? I think they're going to have the most in each conference. Lions are going to have the most NFC.

That's a total overreaction. They may match Texans up and coming. No, I know that. I know that, but I still don't think that the NFL is going to max out their national television.

I think it's five or six now, maybe. I should look that up as somebody who's mission critical to the schedule release. I'm the emcee of the schedule release show. Mission critical. I love how the NFL refers to people who are involved in this.

Like it's where we're landing on the moon. I'll just say that's an overreaction. The 49ers will be maxed out. His Cowboys will be maxed out. I think the Eagles will be maxed out. And the Lions may come close if not totally maxed out. And I think the Chiefs are maxed out. I don't think they'll max out the Jets.

I think they learned the hard way. I don't think the Texans will be maxed out. I might be wrong. We'll see. What else, Chris? What else? MVP top five. I got it. We heard from John Mayo earlier in the show and I poured over those comments over the weekend. I read everything I could.

I watched every video I could. After listening to Coach Mayo, Patriots need to sit Drake May for the entire 2024 season. It ain't happening. It's not happening.

Well, it's not about if it is happening. It's that they should. They need to sit him the whole year.

No, they don't. He's got to get some action. We got to get him out there. That's what the pre-season's for. That's what practice is for. That's not practice. There's no practice time. If he's not starting, he will get zero practice reps.

Zero. And at some point, the Patriots season will get to the point where you're going to see him. And certainly if Brissett gets hurt. You need to sit him. No. You need to sit him.

No, you don't. Even Mahomes got a cup of coffee. Did you see I saw this story over the weekend? I don't like that story. That some players and the Chiefs wanted Mahomes to play over Alex Smith during the season?

I'm calling BS on that story. Okay. Seven years later, we're just like, oh yeah, yeah, he's the greatest player ever now. And it's like, yeah, I wanted him to play in like week five.

We wanted to draft him too. Come on. What else? You see the Cardinals signed or Zay Jones is going out there. Okay. Arizona.

They got Marvin Harrison. Oh, what are you going to say here? Okay. Whatever you're saying, you don't believe. Whatever you're about to say, you don't believe.

No, no, no. I call, by the way, I called this last year. I'm not overreacting to what I'm assuming is coming. This exact same phrasing I called last season. I just want that on the record.

Oh, surrounded by weapons. Kyler Murray, MVP finalist. Tyler Murray. Okay. You really believe it?

Look me in the face. I called Lamar last year. Did I not? Right. You did.

Kyler Murray, MVP finalist. Okay, pal. No way. Cardinals. Sneaky play. Overreaction. I shouldn't say no way. I will just say this. Overreaction. Dude, get out of here.

Sneaky playoff team card. There's only three. Well, there's five finalists now. There's five. That's what I mean. Okay. High five. No. Kyler Murray, top five. I'm not buying that.

Why isn't Kyler Murray on the list? What else, Chris? All right. A couple of basketball before we get out the door. The Knicks.

They turned back into a pumpkin. Pacers win in six. In six?

Pacers win in the next two. Rich. You heard my brain. They're gassed. Gassed. This guy over here.

This guy over here. One game from Tatum and all of a sudden he's coming in here and he's slagging the Knicks. No, that has nothing to do with the Celtics.

Okay. They lost by like 80 yesterday. You should hope you're wrong because if the Pacers win four in a row, they'll be nice and rested. No coming to TD Garden.

They might give you a better series than the current Ickerbockers right now. So, get out of here with this noise. This is going seven as the day is long. Yeah, it's going seven. You know it's going seven. You know the Knicks are winning this one and then the Pacers are winning that one. Is Scott Foster doing game five? NBA referee assignments released at 9 a.m. Dave game. Okay. Can't wait to come on the air at noon Eastern tomorrow.

What else you got Chris? Back from the dead guys. The Nuggets are winning the NBA championship. I don't think that's an overreaction at all. That's not an overreaction.

That is entirely possible and we're coming full circle. Came on the air today. First segment. Started the show saying why are we not ascribing to the Nuggets what we would ascribe to any defending NBA champion that has a three-time MVP on it now. Which is they have the heart of a champion that they are going to be at the toughest out imaginable.

They dig deep. They're a terrific team that's incredibly well coached. Nobody ascribes that to the Nuggets. It's all like, okay, nice team you got there. 52-80.

So, I don't think that's an overreaction at all. That's it. That's it. Last one. Nobody wants to talk about golf, but I know. Wait a minute.

I was about to say, I can't believe you. Tell me how Rory's going to do it. It's PGA Championship Week. Tell me how Rory's going to do it. Rory's going to beat Sheffler and Kepka to win this weekend. You're out of your mind.

Major number five. You're out of your mind. Rory time, baby. Dude, I swear to you, I was going to say.

Did you see that yesterday? When I said that's it, I'm like, where's the Rory's going to win this week? Rory's winning the PGA this week.

You are like a broken clock. At some point, you're going to be right. Rory's last major came 10 years ago at this very course where they're playing the PGA. Rory's finally going to do it. He's got his mind right. I heard him what at Quail Hollow this week. He wins it. I heard him on the practice tee talking about Nikki Glaser's mind.

Even though he thought a male comedian said it, and there's nobody that ever mistakes Nikki Glaser for that. Let me tell you. Rory time, baby.

You're out of your mind. Jump on it, people. I knew it. You're so predictable. Rory time. Sheffler's going to dominate.

We all know it. Great overreaction Monday. Great Monday show.

We'll be back to wrap it up on Roku in a sec. John brings his skewed sense of humor. Jeff brings tips to cut strokes off your next round. Together, it's those weekend golf guys.

They'll pay a lot of money to PXG and Tylus and Callaway and on and on and on. How many yards you think you're going to pick up with that extra? I think I can get an extra five to 10. What if I give you a 15 to 20?

You pay me more. Jeff Smith teaches on a sliding scale. Those weekend golf guys, the podcast, part of the Believe Network. Just search BLEAV on YouTube or wherever you listen.
