What makes your skin crawl, no matter how absurd? I want to know.

Tails without fur on them, such as rats or opossums? I'm Larry Mullins, the host of a new podcast called Your Weirdest Fears. You send me your fear.

I'm just so weirded out about the texture and how they can just move around and flop. And then I go to the experts to learn how to overcome them. Listen and subscribe to Your Weirdest Fears on the Odyssey app, or wherever you get your podcast from. Is there something really absurd that skeeves you out?

Getting a paper cut on my eyeball? A fear you can't shake? I'm going to leak ocular fluid down my cheeks.

It's going to go into my mouth and I will perish. Whatever scares you, I want to talk about it. Join me, Larry Mullins, on my new podcast, Your Weirdest Fears. Listen and subscribe to Your Weirdest Fears on the Odyssey app, or wherever you get your podcast from. We are coming to you live from the Rocket Mortgage Studios.

Need to know what it takes for a home to fit your budget and your family. Well, Rocket can. Picky, before we do this QB or that QB, you want to know how pathetic my football life has become when it comes to New England Patriots? And how bad the offense is? And how just disgusting and insipid and pedestrian that Patriots offense is? You want to know how pathetic it is if you're a fan of the Patriots right now and you went to that game last night like I did? Sure, let's hear it. So late in the fourth quarter, when you go to these games, even if the team stinks, it's still in some way a fun environment, if that makes any sense, even though you're miserable because the team's not playing well, because you have a collective group of people in front of you and behind you that you've never met before that are all bitching about the same things that you're bitching about.

It's almost therapeutic in a way because you know once you leave the stadium, you got to stop the bitching and you got to go back to living your normal life. So there's a guy sitting in front of me at the game last night, older gentleman, and you want to know what the conversation was with about six minutes left in the fourth quarter? You want to know what he was bragging about and what everyone had an opinion about? Sure. He had electric socks, heated socks, and he could control the temperature of the socks on an app from his phone.

That is bougie. Wow. Yeah, that's something you would need if you ever had to actually go to a cold weather football game again. So the reason why I bring that up is the T-BART Express, who is listening to us right now, tweeted us and said, when you go to a cold weather game, you guys needed heated vests. You ever had a heated vest? I have not. I've heard of them.

Never had one. Now, there's some stadiums that don't let you bring in a heated vest. I think it was in Buffalo when we were walking. And that was the first time I ever heard about them because they said you can't wear a heated vest to Buffalo, which you think would be the place that you would be allowed to wear one. But I don't know, it's a security concern or something like that. They don't want people, you know, I think it's a fire hazard.

Yeah, I think those, you know. Burst, burst into flames. There's a chance that I could go in with a heated vest and I could. Short circuits.

Go up in flames, stop, drop and roll. I mean, look, not to be morbid, but you are, you know, a walking tinderbox. If that, you know, it's all the layers people have on. That thing does, you know. That is true. That is true.

So you're not wrong on that. What did you say? A walking what? A tinderbox. Oh, OK.

When you hear the word tinderbox, you think of something else these days. The app? Yes.

No, not the app. Just a box full of all just flammable objects ready to go up with one match. Yeah.

Some kindling, some fire. You know probably where heated vests do a football game these days? Who's that? Drew Brees.

Well, by the way, how stupid is that? Like I called you today and I go, hey, there's some video that's surfacing online of Drew Brees getting struck by lightning. And my buddy that was driving back with goes, oh, that's got to be fake. And I go, oh, yeah, you're probably right. But I got to call Hickey just in case if it's not fake, because it was being reported on Twitter that he got struck by lightning while filming a commercial for points bet. And I called Hickey and I go, hey, let's just monitor this Drew Brees thing. And then I text you, oh, it's fake and all that.

But how dumb is that? Like, what are they doing on points bet? It's called like lightning round or something like it's some way you could gamble with them, like strike quickly like lightning or something. And they were filming a commercial to then do series of commercials. One is Drew Brees getting struck by lightning, then coming out of the hospital was actually kind of funny. The second commercial once he knew he didn't actually get struck by lightning and wasn't going to die. It was kind of funny when it was, oh, you don't know if he gets struck by lightning twice and then he got struck by lightning again. But that was very bizarre on the Internet today.

Like that was a very weird and uncomfortable 30 minutes or so. To their credit, it worked. Well, they got the message out and they got their name out. So, yes, now everyone's talking about points bet today. But are people now actually going to points bet and like signing up on their app and placing bets through points bet, do you think?

I have no idea, but I'll be more of an uptick then. Right. If you didn't hear about their name beforehand, now you definitely do. And now it's just, you know, they had commercials before that are pretty, let's say, crappy. Now, at least that, you know, they're out there again. And maybe they said maybe you're inclined next time you want to bet. Oh, maybe let's go sports back.

Oh, yeah. Or points bet, because that was the one who almost had Drew Brees die. Do you think do you think when they were coming up with this? How long do you think it took them to just say or when you let's just say you're Drew Brees. We go to Drew Brees. Hey, Drew, we're going to release a commercial.

You could get struck by lightning and then we're going to release a second commercial that you survive. And you came out of the hospital and you got to join like this lightning round on on points better, whatever. If you were Drew Brees, wouldn't you say, guys, I know I'm your spokesperson, but I really don't need your money. I've been a lot of money in the NFL. I have a lot of endorsements.

Go back to the drawing table. I mean, you would think, but everyone has a price. Everyone has a price. I know. But that guy doesn't need the money.

And he doesn't need people texting him. Are you alive? Yeah. Like that was you called is actually a little bit like we're like, are we going to do like a eulogy? Like this is it was scary for like 10 minutes.

It kind of went down a dark path. But every jackass now in the media, once one person text Drew Brees and Drew Brees says I'm good, then everyone in the media has to start reaching out. Hey, Drew, how you doing? Drew, you're good. You're good.

You're OK. I just talked to Drew Brees. I want you to know I talked to Drew Brees and Drew Brees is OK. Yeah. We saw every other media member tweet that out that I had a little bit too much for me. Did you text Drew Brees that I see if he was OK? I did not. After I saw the first person.

Man, you're an awful human being. I'll save Drew the text. But it's like, man, that's that was a wild 30 minutes that that we had. Well, I called him like, I don't know if this is real or not, but Drew Brees, I guess, got struck by lightning. And it's two points bet. And I'll give credit to Ray, my friend.

He goes, this got to be something in the betting world, like a promotion just to get you to go join points bet or something. They claim to be filming in Venezuela. So they went all in and in terms of, you know, going to this location. That's true.

But and he said to tweet out two days before going on a secret location to shoot a big commercial. They really did a lot of work. We'll say this. But this is not like, oh, let's just do this. What the hell? And just kind of wing it.

This this is a lot of effort and minds put together. And Drew Brees really has no shame because he was very active on social media after this. For example, Purdue, his school, they play Michigan this week in the Big Ten championship game and he's walking around. He goes, by the way, I'm alive. I didn't die today. I'm feeling really good about Purdue.

Go Boilermakers. Like if I'm him. You got the publicity for points bet.

I don't need to see your face all over the place today. I would assume you go to the game tomorrow. Do you think he brings like a lightning bolt with him? Like, you know, if he's on the big, big screen like or he calls Lucas or stadium, hey, you know, let's get an effect or also in a lightning strikes and then boom, I pop up. You got to just play into it right at this point.

I guess maybe wears a costume like, you know, the Incredibles lightning man. If I'm Purdue, I'm saying, Drew, stay home. I'm kidding. I'm kidding. I'm kidding. Jeff, actually, you know, that's like a thought. Drew, we don't want distractions.

We're going to retract the tickets. Yeah. All right. Let's get to a little bit of this QB or that QB for week 13.

Hit it. Give you a disclaimer, please. The quarterbacks we will discuss is for this week and this week only. We're not talking about Korea. We're not talking about the rest of the season. Which quarterback do you want on your team for this week 13 matchup only?

Let's start the big gun, Zach. Chiefs, Bengals. Would you rather have Joe Burrow, who's 2-0 against Patrick Mahomes?

Great question. Or would you rather have the right now the best quarterback in the NFL himself, Patrick Mahomes? Even though Burrow and the Bengals won both games last year and they also won that AFC title game where Patrick Mahomes was horrible in the second half in overtime. I'm taking the best quarterback in football in Patrick Mahomes.

And I hate that you asked me this one. I knew you were going to because I love Joe Burrow. Burrow's phenomenal.

You know what, since I don't have a quarterback right now or my quarterback's not being put in a position to succeed. I don't think there's a quarterback that I enjoy watching more right now than Joe Burrow. He's got a drip like on point tomorrow or Sunday, right? You think?

His drip is always on point. He'll be walking in some swaggy outfit. He actually could be the swaggiest quarterback in the NFL. Do you run back what he wore last year with the glasses and like that, not fur coat, but like that heavy fleece jacket?

I think you got to run it back. I don't know. He could do whatever he wants. Joe Burrow, that guy. Like James Corden once with Justin Bieber, they went into a store together. They do one of those carpool karaoke and James Corden picked out the most ridiculous outfit for Justin Bieber. Justin Bieber wore it.

He rocked it. He just has that swag. Joe Burrow just has that swag. But in terms of which quarterback are they have? Patrick Mahomes or Joe Burrow?

Yeah. Reluctantly, I'm going to take Mahomes. A matchup a little less hyped than Bengals, Chiefs is Steelers, Falcons.

Oh, wow. I thought you were going to go Lions, Jaguars. Kenny Pickett or Marcus Mariota? Which one would you rather have for this week?

Kenny Pickett. Not even close. It doesn't mean that the Steelers are going to win this game. Just the quarterback. I can't trust Marcus Mariota with the game of the line. You saw what happened last week. Not that you have an abundance of trust in Kenny Pickett, but Kenny Pickett with a bad offensive line made some plays last week. Against the defense, that's the one bright spot about Indianapolis.

They have a good defense on paper. I'll take Kenny Pickett. Tua or Jimmy G? Tua. Tua's the better quarterback. Tua's the better player. Jimmy G, we know he's had a lot of success in this league winning games, but I think the Dolphins win in a big reason because of Tua.

Like in terms of when you go week in and week out. Jimmy G, sometimes it feels like they win in spite of Jimmy Garoppolo. You mentioned before, so let's get to it. Lions, Jaguars. Jared Goff or Trevor Lawrence for this week only. Which quarterback would you rather have? You know, Goff isn't maybe as bad as he's been made out to be. Like, I'm not sitting here telling you he's this wonderful quarterback and a quarterback that you got to have.

But I would go with Trevor Lawrence. Kyle Allen will make his second start here for the Texans. Deshaun Watson is making his season debut after not playing now for almost two years. Why are you even asking me this?

Because I think it's an interesting question. Which quarterback would you rather have? Kyle Allen or Deshaun Watson? Yeah, Deshaun Watson is a... It makes a ton of questionable decisions, obviously, off the field.

But this is on the field, correct Amundo? On the field, where he hasn't played in two years. I don't... Did you watch Kyle Allen last week? Did you watch Deshaun Watson in the one preseason game you played? Are you telling me you'd rather have Kyle Allen? I'm just trying to make an argument to make it a close decision.

I don't think it's as big of a slam dunk as you're making it seem to be. What? I'm talking to Deshaun Watson, but I don't think it's by, you know, not even a question.

Moving on. And his first week back, after not playing in two years? Kyle Allen sucks. Deshaun Watson, I have no idea what he is in the first week.

I have no idea. Deshaun Watson led the league in passing yards. Yeah, in 2020. Okay, even if Deshaun Watson is 45% of the quarterback that he once was, he's still ten times better than Kyle Allen. Deshaun Watson.

The defense stinks. Deshaun Watson. Mike White or Kirk Cousins? Kirk Cousins. This one was better like week one.

Now, week 13, not so much. Russell Wilson or Lamar Jackson? Russell Wilson. Who shows up today?

Which bigger teammates show up? Stop, stop, stop. I was kidding, obviously. Lamar Jackson.

A thousand percent. I'm just messing up. I'm trying to get my guy Russ here. I win. I was hoping that would elicit a response. Oh, you're starting to join the Broncos party that you were leading.

Oh, man. I kind of was waiting for the other, like, you know, lobbed up to yourself. I was like, I'm not going to let him try to slam down Russ. I see through your Deshaun Watson, Kyle Allen conversation. You got so offended and so annoyed with me earlier in the week when I said in the ten-year history of CBS Sports Radio, you made the worst prediction, probably, of that the Broncos were going to win the Super Bowl this year. Russell Wilson was going to win the Super Bowl MVP and the league MVP in the thin hat because he'd be top three coach of the year. I think you were intentionally trying to have a bad take there. So I would direct my attention to your Kyle Allen takeover Deshaun Watson or just floating out that possibility. That I start to bring that up instead of the Broncos. I'm on to you. No, I'm actually trying to defend myself for putting it in the mix. That's all.

OK, that's all I'm just I'm just throwing out there. I have no idea what Sean Watson looks like. He could throw four touchdowns against the Texans.

He could go on back, maybe get, you know, the booze, get in his head and he throws three picks. I have no idea. OK, I have no idea. Yeah. But to answer your question, Lamar Jackson over Russell Wilson all day. Which which has a big birthday party, Lamar or Russell Wilson?

Close. The Ravens like Lamar Jackson. They may not be able to deal them with him, but the players like and respect him. That's an overblown story. I've not been a defender of Russ.

I've been maybe his biggest critic. Half the team went to the birthday party. Half the team.

That's that's pretty good. Imagine trying to get half the roster at CBS Sports Radio or a birthday party. Let's say DA throws a birthday party. I think half the roster is going.

You think half the team's going here? We all love DA. We all respect DA.

But, you know, many times people make excuses and just don't want to do things with people that they work with. We saw DA every day, maybe. I think. Yeah, maybe.

Right. See, that birthday party probably is pretty cringe, too. I would go cringe.

Why would it be cringe? Not DA, Russell. Russell Wilson. Oh, that's that's more. Not DA.

I was like, there's a suicide. I like Russell Wilson. I've tried to defend him a little bit. I bet you he throws a good part.

I don't think I would go to his birthday. Remember? No, stop it. I see pictures of his face everywhere. Please.

He probably the douchiest suit ever. No, you're missing the point. Sierra, plan the party. But if it's all about Russ, that's insufferable.

OK. If it's all about him in the facility, I'm not going to go to a place. She planned the party. I bet you she knows how to play the good party. You're telling me if you got invited to Russell Wilson's birthday party, you're not going? If I worked, if I was a member of the Broncos, I don't think I would go.

Oh, you're such full of bleep. If he's as insufferable as it's making out to be in the locker room and in the facility. I'm not then spending my time outside facility going to a birthday party.

Again, I'm sure he is one that loves himself and would just be dying for the attention 24 seven would be obnoxious. I'm going to see how good of a producer you are. It's going to test your memory and put you on the spot. What's the biggest storyline going into this game? For which game?

Broncos right now. Mm hmm. What's the biggest storyline?

Biggest storyline? There's a little extra motivation for the Broncos. I don't know. Remember, Justin Tucker was on the plane back. Oh, yeah. And he did the whole high knees thing. And he goes, I know we play them and all that.

And he just didn't care. He does have Russell Wilson's good court. I could play him in a few weeks. A little motivation there for the Broncos. I just don't. Well, they're all the wide receiving room is hurt.

I don't think it matters anyway. I think that group is going to rally and galvanize around Russell Wilson and go, yeah, that's our leader. So do you think I like the opening kickoff like someone cheap shots Justin Tucker? Keep keep running your mouth.

You know what? I put it this way in a game. If Russell Wilson gets a little cheap shot or Justin Tucker gets cheap shot, I think there's a greater reaction from the Ravens. I mean, there is on the Broncos sideline. Remember the longest yard, the number the second one when Adam Sandler comes back and the offensive lineman take a few plays off. They let him get hit back with the Broncos offensive on this. Wow. We missed block. Yeah. Interesting.

All right. How about an AFC West battle is a good one. The first time these two teams met Raiders charges. Would you rather have Derek Carr or Justin Herbert? Justin Herbert. Derek Carr threw three picks the last two times these teams played.

Yes, you are not wrong. Finally, an NFC East battle. Taylor Heinecke or Daniel Jones. Which one would you rather have?

Oh, that's a great war this week and this week only. Taylor Ham. Heinecke. Oh, a guy who's five and one like him. No, they love him. Speaking of, you know, he throws a birthday party. Everyone's going to that birthday party.

I think you're right. He'd probably get the biggest turnout of any quarterback who threw a party. When you look at both those quarterback, what's the most dominant trait when you look at both those quarterbacks? Mobility.

I'm talking about individually. It would be the mobility of Daniel Jones. Oh, like that his legs are greater than anything Taylor Heinecke does?

Yeah, I'd agree with that. That's why I'm going Daniel Jones. Zach Gelb shows CBS Sports Radio.

That was this QB or that QB for week 13. Throughout the 60s and 70s, cops hunted down key figures of the Dixie Mafia, including its enigmatic ringleader, Kirksey Nix. I'm in a rush to making money.

I'm not in a rush to hurt people. 15 years into Kirksey's life sentence, the Dixie Mafia was practically folklore, but that would soon change. I'm Jed Lipinski. This is Gone South, a documentary podcast from C-13 Originals, a Cadence 13 studio. Season two, The Dixie Mafia, available now on the Odyssey app or wherever you get your podcasts.

Season two, The Dixie Mafia, available now on the Odyssey app or wherever you get your podcasts. Oh, look at you. Hickey's realizing it's the holiday time. He's like, oh, I want that number to go up this year in terms of what I'm going to give Hot Day Hickey for the holidays. That's what I just took from there.

That is not true. You can ask yourself on June 1st, December 1st, doesn't matter. My answer is the same. Now, if I tell you as much as you love your job that you can make $170,000 a year somewhere else, would you be at least interested in finding out what the job is?

Money to me is no object, but I'm interested. Let's hear it. Yes, of course. Smart answer. It is not to be the director of Tasting Wings because you would be terrible at that. Yeah, that's true, you ask.

No, no, no, no, no. You don't eat wings. You eat homeless wings. I saw your wings yesterday. Let's say we talked about them. Who?

You're. The picture you sent of the wings. Who did you talk to?

Carlos, producing the show. Now, I did not make those wings, but there was someone that owns eight restaurants that was in charge of the wing process. They were good wings yesterday. They weren't regular buffalo wings. But what did you guys say about the wings? Because. Don't be disrespectful.

No, I just was saying it's not my cup of tea. You know, I would have went boneless. Because the bone in. That's why. That's all I'm saying. Carlos Plato, you know, boneless wings rejoins.

I know it's perfect timing to see Zach tweeting about the tailgate. He does one thing. I would do another. I go ease of eating. I don't want, you know, grease in my fingers.

That's all. Well, that's why we don't invite you. I'm a man's man when it comes to tailgating. I go for the game.

I drink light beer and I eat simple food because I'm there for one reason. I'm not there to enjoy the time. You are not a man's man. I'm there to watch the game. A man's man would be getting his fingers dirty and eating the wings and all that and sucking the grease off his fingers.

That's a man's man. You, you probably have your fork and your knife and you cut your boneless wings and all that and you cut it up into nice little pieces. You're like a child. I can't bring you to a tailgate. You're like a child.

I don't have to count, though. The wings are small if you just put them right in your mouth. You know what? You come to a tailgate with me. We'll get you a high chair. We'll get you a little sippy cup and I'll give you your boneless wings and we'll cut it up and we'll go, OK. Here comes the choo choo chain. Chugga choo choo choo choo choo choo.

And I'll let you have your little dino nuggets, OK? But anyway, you want to know what the job that pays $170,000 a year is? It's not wingtasting on us here. What is it?

This is from Rico Bosco over at Barstool Sports. Would you be interested? The director of rodent mitigation of New York City. My girlfriend actually would be interested in that.

She hates the rats in New York City. No, no. But you would be in charge then, I guess, of... Of probably going in the sewers and looking... Well, if you're the director, I don't know if you're actually... Actually, you probably are boss of the people around. I would do that. Get the sewer. Get down there. Go get those rats out of there. Go give them some poison.

Get out of there. $170,000 a year. How would I get underpaid? With how bad the rat problem is?

Underpaid. You know what's crazy? Everyone keeps on telling me the rat problem is bad... Man, I'm going to walk myself into some bad... You better watch your mouth.

You don't want to mush yourself when it comes to this problem. Everyone keeps on telling me the rat problem is bad in New York City. Now, I live on the sixth floor.

Where do you live? What floor? Second floor. That's a little dangerous. I would never live first floor in a New York City apartment.

Same. Or a basement. My friend lives on the first floor of a New York City apartment. Had roaches. That's terrible.

Now... That is disgusting. I haven't... I think I've seen rats in the city. But everyone's telling me there's a rat problem. I haven't noticed any more rats recently in New York City.

You have? Not more, but they're around. They've been around.

They're always around. But that's a problem. Get rid of them.

Let's go. You can't get rid of all the rats. $170,000... Ack, let me ask you a question. $170,000 a year to the director of getting rid of the rats in New York City? I'm in.

That's actually probably the man we want. Ack knows the city very well. You know the spots where they hide out. Well, you know, you just throw down some, you know... Peter Luger. There you go. Boom.

Yeah. You put it inside of a paper bag with the trap. Trap goes. You throw out the rats. How many traps you gonna buy? Well, whatever it takes. By the way, before Peter calls us, I can just imagine, like, Ack walking up with a microphone.

How you doing over there, little fella? So how many Peter Luger steaks you gonna buy with all those rats? That's an expensive trap you got there. You'd get fired for that job. No budget. Tax write-off.

It is the Zach Gelb show on CBS Sports Radio. You big chicken wing guy, Ack? No. No.

Oh, you don't, but it's not like I go out of my way for it. But you wouldn't do boneless wings. Like, if you're gonna get wings, you're gonna do bone-in.

Don't wings have to have bones? Thank you. Thank you.

They're chicken nuggets if they don't have bones. Ack, you earned your money tonight. Thank you. Appreciate it. I got 170 grand?

Ass-bike. Not me. Anyway, Conference Championship Weekend is here. USC against Utah coming up to top of the hour. And these two teams played last. Utah won. It was that crazy 43-42 game. It looked like USC was gonna blow him out, and then Cam Rising happened. And he was sensational in the game.

Maybe he played the game of his life. Hickey, tonight, your thoughts on this one? Let's see who you're gonna mush here. You're gonna take USC. You're gonna take Utah. Because for the college football playoff picture, before we get your prediction, I know what we thought earlier in the week.

Now let's get the official things in on Friday. Right now, would you agree with the statement, the only two locks to make the college football playoff, after seeing the way the committee did go down with the rankings on Tuesday, that right now, it's the only two teams that you feel are definitely in are Georgia and Michigan. Would you agree with that? No, I would put TCU in there. So, I think TCU should be in.

But let me just ask you this. If let's just say USC wins tonight, and then TCU loses, do you think the committee puts Ohio State in over TCU? Do you think that's on the table? Because the committee's gonna try to get Ohio State in, but they're gonna need either USC or TCU to lose. Now if USC loses, I don't think it matters what TCU does this weekend, then TCU's gonna find a way to get in, they'll get Ohio State in. But if you have USC winning tonight, and then TCU loses, even though TCU should get in, I think it's gonna be a little bit uncomfortable.

I think it could be very uncomfortable as you wait on Sunday to find out if you're gonna get in or not. I think for once this year, the committee will do the right thing. Wow, so you're having faith in the committee?

The committee that you've hammered and destroyed? I just don't think they're stupid enough. I could be wrong, again.

I don't know about that. I will say they will do the right thing for the first time this year and keep TCU in if they do lose. Let's just play this out a little bit, and I would rather have TCU and then Ohio State. But if you have a one-loss, non-conference champ Ohio State team, one-loss, non-conference champion TCU team, can't you see the committee saying, oh, Ohio State beat Notre Dame? Ohio State also beat Penn State. Penn State's in the top 10.

Can't you see the committee kinda using that? I don't think they penalized TCU for playing an extra game. 11-1 versus 11-1 I think is a different story. I think 12-1 versus 11-1 is the reason why TCU is still gonna be in.

Okay, I hope you're right. But if I'm TCU, take care of business, you're in against Kansas State. So right now I think Georgia, Michigan are your two locks. I do think TCU is gonna be Kansas State. And I'm picking USC tonight. In the year of all the chaos, all the teams falling by the wayside, I don't think this weekend we're gonna have TCU and USC lose. I'm more concerned about TCU losing to Kansas State, but they've been doubted the entire year and they proved everyone wrong, so I'm gonna pick them to win. I know Utah's a heck of a football team. Kyle Whittingham is an excellent coach.

Kim Rising's been really good for them. And they were the Pac-12 champions last year. They're not gonna go down without a fight, but I just can't bet against Caleb Williams right now. And also with how that game played the first time out, it took everything for Utah to get the victory.

I just don't think everything goes their way tonight. So I think next week on Monday when we sit here will be Georgia 1, Michigan 2. You will have TCU 3 and then USC 4.

You're 4, Hickey? What are they gonna be? Same order. Georgia, Michigan, TCU, USC. So you're picking USC to beat Utah tonight?

I am picking Utah to win the game. USC is in no matter what. You think they're in no matter what? Yes. I don't think they'll get penalized for playing an extra game.

I don't think so. Oh, they definitely. They'll put Ohio State. If USC loses Ohio State, I guarantee you we'll get in.

Alright, we'll see. Because USC doesn't have a great win? What's their great win? Beating UCLA.

Solid win. They've beaten Notre Dame. That Ohio State also beat?

I hate to say it. Your school, Penn State. That would be the case for Ohio State. Well, USC also made it again. A conference championship. I don't see how they can penalize USC for playing an extra game that Ohio State couldn't make.

We talked about this earlier in the week. I don't think the committee's gonna penalize them. And we've never had a two-loss team get in the college football playoff. So you think that's gonna break this year?

Yes. I don't think precedent's that big of a deal. And when they lost to Utah twice, if USC loses tonight, I don't see how they're getting in. Okay. I really don't. I think that would be the way in for Ohio State.

But I think USC's winning tonight, so it's not gonna be a problem. Zach Gelb's show CBS Sports Radio coming back with a news brief.

AutoZone. Let's hear Mac Jones explain why the Patriots couldn't get into the zone last night. And he was frustrated with Matt Patricia. Obviously, just kind of let my emotions get to me, but what I said was about throwing it deeper within the short game. You know, I got to execute that part better, but it's the short game that we kept going to, which is working. But I felt like we needed to chunk plays and, you know, I shouted that out to kind of get everyone going. That's emotional. That's football. I'm passionate about this game.

And obviously you don't want to get your emotions, you know, get the best of you, but it wasn't directed at anybody. Just emotion coming out and we kind of needed a spark. So originally this was reported last night or people trying to read lips and they said, Mac Jones said the run game sucks. Let's throw the ball deep. And I was like, when I saw that clip on Twitter, I go, why would he say the run game sucks?

Andre Stevens is a heck of a back. And then it comes out and even it was Kurt Warner who pointed out first in the Mac, even said in the postgame that it was the quick pass. They were down. They wanted to throw the ball deep. Instead, they're basically running screens.

And Hickey, I know we can all question if Mac Jones has the arm or not for it. You're not wrong, though, because there was many times in that game late where it was five yards and it was screen passes. And I'm like, what do they do? I know the line stinks right now, but I'm like, what are they doing? Throw the ball deep. You got to get some big chunk plays.

At least give yourself a shot. I know they're down 17. I think it was when they got the ball back by six, seven minutes left. They took one deep shot in that drive that eventually the field goal. But it's like you would have thought the Patriots are by 17 with a lack of urgency. And like I said, it's screen passes, it's dump offs.

It's like five yards slants. And I know it was in a dome, but you're just coming off a week. And I know the Vikings defense is not as good as the Bills defense, but it was the first time all year where that moron of an offensive coordinator, Matt.

Patricia finally said, oh, let's throw the ball deep down the field. And it worked. So a week later, you have zero consistency. Man. This guy stinks. Patricia stinks, stinks.

And, you know, my voice all messed up today because I'm screaming about it last night when I'm at the game. I'm just going to throw a question out there. Fire Patricia? Yes. No, no, no. Do you think he stays?

Mac? No. Matt Patricia next year. He's on the coaching side next year. Not as OC, but somewhere like repositioned.

Is that your guess? He's not officially the OC. He's calling the plays, though. You think there'll be a new, let's say, play caller next year that's not Patricia or Joe Judge? There better be. Better be and it will be, Bill. Yeah. Figure it out, man. I'm pulling at you now.

Like with your USC point earlier. Better be. The committee's not going to screw me. Yeah.

I'm just going to do what you do when you don't want to argue something. They better be. They better be.

Better be. I could have told you that after week three. If Patricia is calling the plays next year on the offensive side of the ball. It's, I'm telling you, I'm not spending a dime on the team next year. I'll watch every game. I ain't going though. Patricia's going.

I don't know. I do like, I like the tailgates are fun. Tailgate in your apartment if you want.

Nah, but it's different when you're there and the atmosphere and all that. And then get jacked up to get the air deflated out of the balloon. Patricia's the offensive coordinator next year. You know how Patricia once wore the Goodell clown nose shirt?

Yes. I'll wear a Patricia clown nose shirt into the game. What about a Bill clown nose shirt? No, no, no. Cause he'd be the clown bringing Patricia back next year. No, no, no, no.

Okay. It'd be a bad decision by Belichick, but is one of the greatest coaches of all time. It'd be a clown decision. Yeah.

It'd be a bad decision. Mac Jones says he wants to be coach hard. It's accountability.

It starts with me. And I think I, I want to be coached harder. I want to be a better player and the coaches have given us everything they've got and they've done everything to put us in position to win. But I want to hold everybody accountable, including myself. So I think that's, you know, it's tough, right? You get called out a little bit or you have to admit that you didn't do your job. I mean, that's part of the game. And a lot of that blame falls on me. I didn't do my best tonight. I think a lot of other guys play with a lot of good effort. We play with effort. I play with effort. I'm going to give it everything I got every week, no matter what.

So I'll go until the wheels fall off. I don't think Ryan is getting coached harder. I think it's just getting coached better because he doesn't think he's getting the best coaching because of who's doing the coaching on the offensive side of the ball, led by the two brainiacs of Joe Judge and Matt Patricia. Mac Jones went to Alabama.

He's no dummy when it comes to watching his words. You're right. Coaching harder equates to getting better coached. I don't think there's ever been a player in New England that goes, oh yeah, our coaches don't coach hard enough. Better?

That's a different topic of conversation. Mac Jones says the offense let the team down. We didn't play our best game, obviously, and we let our team down. I think when we all play together, the defense, special teams, and offense, when we finally get a chance to do that, I think the results will be there. He says all the right things. He's not going to be Zach Wilson, I'll tell you that. Do I want to hear Belichick, yes or no? There wasn't extra saltiness, so maybe not. Richard Sherman talking about extra saltiness. Ripsville Belichick for getting too much credit for success, Amazon. You've given Belichick too much credit.

I talked about this before. People were like, Belichick, Belichick, Belichick. Tom Brady. Things have changed a lot without Tom Brady. He ain't here. He's not here, and you can see he's not here because in these situations, in these times, at this time of year, Tom Brady is executed. Tom Brady and Gillette, you might as well, you know you're walking out of here with an L, but today we watched a cornerback, a DB, be their leading receiver with 51 yards and two catches.

Concerned. Yeah, all great coaches need great players. Phil Jackson, look who he coached. Tom Brady got coached by Bill Belichick. You could do, in any sport, the greatest coaches have some of the greatest players, but let's not pretend like Belichick is this terrible coach now. He was 10 and 7 with a bottom 5 roster last year, a bottom 10 roster last year, but yeah, that's why I said for years, I hate to pick who's more important, Brady or Belichick, but it is slightly Brady because he's a player. But let's not forget about the first part of the dynasty where that was mainly Belichick, then it was Brady, and then in the second half, it was a lot more credit to Brady than it was Belichick, but for every 28 to 3, for every coming back by 10 points to the LOB, then there's a performance against the Rams in the second Super Bowl where Brady's offense only had 13 points, and Belichick's defense held Boy Wonder, Sean McVay at only 3 points. Let's go to Jimmy Garoppolo and if he was close to going to the Dolphins this offseason.

Yeah, I mean, they were in a conversation. Not much came from it, but they were definitely one of the teams in the conversation. Seemed like a good spot as an offense. That's tremendous skill players, everything they got going over there. Mike, being a great coach, had been with him in the past year, and it was discussed, but I'm glad the way things worked out.

Hickey, you know what I've realized? And this is nothing new. We keep on praising the Dolphins for the coaching of Mike McDaniel and Chris Greer getting the right talent around Tua, but they didn't want Tua on the roster this year as the starting quarterback. They tried for Deshaun Watson. They tried for Tom Brady. They tried for Jimmy Garoppolo.

They wanted anyone but Tua to be the quarterback, and it ended up being maybe one of the better things to happen to that organization in a long time that he is the quarterback for the way he played this year. How much, though, was that Brian Flores with Tom Brady or even Stephen Ross with Deshaun Watson, because a lot of that, even Jimmy G... Fair, but not Jimmy G. This offseason, Flores wasn't there. Now he said the talks didn't go far, so I don't know what that means, but... And you're telling me if, let's just say, the whole tampering thing didn't come about, that Brady obviously would have been interested. He talked to him multiple times. I'm not saying he would have been on the roster. I'm just saying, how much is that either Stephen Ross is the one who's had orchestrated the meetings? Yeah, but it's more of a Chris Greer thing, then. For how much praise we give Chris Greer, he didn't really want to win the roster anymore, no matter what he says. Nathaniel Hackett addressed the rumors that people don't like Russell Wilson, and then also play Nathaniel Hackett being asked if he's considering quarterback change back-to-back.

To me, it's all gossip. We have a fantastic locker room. When you look at a guy like Russ, I mean, he's unbelievable. I've never seen somebody work that hard, never seen somebody try to embrace a team like he has while he's here. Russ is awesome.

I love Russ. Coach, are there any scenarios where you'd make a change at quarterback if you thought it would give the team a better chance to win? Right now, no.

Right now? That's just not believable when Nathaniel Hackett says, oh yeah, he's unbelievable as a teammate, he's great, everyone loves him, blah, blah, blah. He just had a defensive lineman who was playing in the AAF call out your quarterback.

That's pretty bad. And finally, Patrick Peterson responds to Kyler Murray's tweet calling Peterson out when Peterson originally called out Kyler Murray. First of all, I don't have any beef with Kyler Murray. What I meant by my comment was when you're a franchise quarterback, you have to carry yourself a certain way. So if you're having bad body language, pouting, moping on the sideline, whatever energy you think that feeds off to your teammates, that's what I meant about Kyler cares that he's caring about himself because he's not putting a team first. How do you think the defense feel? If our starting quarterback don't have any energy, no fire, that we can win this game, how can we? But I do look forward to talking to him because I see a ton of talent in him and those mannerisms are alarming and I'm just saying something that most people may be afraid to tell them.

I think Patrick Peterson is right. I don't think Kyler Murray has showed great leadership. I don't. And you could yell and get into a fight with a coach. You could yell and get into a fight with teammates. We've seen Brady do it.

But then it elicits a response. You don't see that response from the teammates of Kyler Murray when he's sulking on the sideline during a playoff game or when he's yelling at the coach and then saying that the scheme was bleep after a game. You never see that group galvanize together and play this great football for a long period of time when the games actually matter.

So I have no problem with what Patrick Peterson of Future Hall of Famer said. Coming on back, Lynn Sternigan joining us. Throughout the 60s and 70s, cops hunted down key figures of the Dixie Mafia, including its enigmatic ringleader, Kirksey Nix. I'm in a rush to making money.
