Now joining us, quarterback of the Tennessee Titans.

That, of course, is Will Leviss, kind enough to join us on behalf of P&G on Radio Row inside the Mandalay Bay Convention Center. Will, appreciate the time. How are you? I'm doing well. Thank you so much for having me.

Well, thanks so much for coming on. So you got a little experience on the field this year in your rookie season with Tennessee. Just how do you kind of look back at what you're able to prove and show to the NFL in year one? Yeah, it was fun. It was fun.

I mean, it was crazy. You know, very unexpected in terms of how the season went and when the opportunity arose and a lot of ups and downs, a lot of learning experiences. But all in all, I came away with a lot of confidence in myself and a lot of confidence in my ability to be the quarterback for this team. And I got to thank my great coaches and great players that I was able to play with that that helped me throughout it all. And, you know, with my career, starting on on draft night and going to here, we would have never knew what would have happened in between.

And even though it was a lot of craziness, I wouldn't trade it for anything. And I made a lot of big strides, I thought. Yeah, we all remember that moment when you were stuck in the green room and then you fell to the second round. Everyone thought you were going to go in the first.

Clearly, it was surprising. What did that moment kind of teach you and how did you kind of turn it into a positive? I mean, it taught me that you never know what's going to happen. And all you can do and handle is your effort and your work ethic and how you approach things going forward.

You don't only can control what you can control. And I was I had the mindset of regardless if I was going to go first overall or thirty third overall, you know, it wasn't going to change how I was going to approach my day to day, you know, work in the building. So to get the opportunity when I did, even though it wasn't like on day one, I feel like that was just the plan that was meant for me and the path that was meant for me in my journey.

And, you know, it helped me a lot. And I love the spot I'm in right now. Well, Lev is here with us. You look back at Mike Vrabel. He was your coach for a year. I know he's since been fired and now you have Callahan.

So you learn the business and the changing side of the NFL rather quickly. When you got the news that Mike wasn't coming back as the head coaches, how did you process it? I was tough. It was tough. I mean, it definitely caught us off guard and we didn't really know what was going to happen or how it was going to go down or really why it happened. But, you know, it's it. It was weird.

It sucked for that day or whatever. And then you got to move on and you got to understand that, you know, you're going to just work as hard as you can and be ready to, you know, undertake the challenge of having a new coach and maybe even learning a whole new offense. And that trusting that with the decisions the organization are making are in our best interest. So which we all believe and we're all behind, you know, our owner and in our in decisions in the organization.

So we're looking forward to, you know, what we're doing going forward. Yeah. What was the first thought when you bring in Bill?

Right. Brian, excuse me, you have a new head football coach and, you know, clearly an offensive mind that worked with Joe Burrow the last few years comes from a football family. It seems like this move that is going to even help out the offense even more, right? Yeah, I mean, I immediately saw the track record of quarterbacks that he'd been able to work with in the past, you know, Super Bowl winning quarterback, Super Bowl winning quarterbacks or at least Super Bowl, you know, appearing quarterbacks. And it's for him to be that young and to have that track record and have the impact and have the success he has. It fired me up for sure. And I'm looking forward to learning his ways and to taking as much in from him as I can.

On the way out with Will Levis. Now, you know, you're the guy from day one. What do you kind of hope to prove? I know you played a little bit last year, but now having your first full season, the first full offseason, knowing that you're going to be the guy in Tennessee. Yeah, I want to become, you know, greater in my leadership role on the team and being a rookie and feeling out, you know, what kind of leader I wanted to be for the team and being more comfortable, being more vocal and having the conversations with guys that need to be had.

I'm looking forward to improving in that respect and, you know, just being not only a great quarterback, but a great leader for this organization. Hey, Will, I got to ask you this question. I saw this was from Diana Rossini when talking about Mike Vrabel. She said that an anonymous GM told her that Mike's a very large human being and he'd be very intimidating to people in the organization. And maybe that's why he didn't get hired this cycle. You had experience with Mike. I never thought a coach's size could be a reason why he doesn't get a job. Like, do you just kind of laugh when you hear that an anonymous GM said that to Diana? I heard that. And I don't know if it was like taking out of context or whatever, but I thought I thought it was funny. I thought it was a joke.

I don't know. But no, he can definitely be intimidating, I guess. And, you know, he's a football guy. Some some some football guys rub the wrong way with not football guys, you know.

So I don't know what the what the context was or whatever, but he definitely at sometimes can be. But, you know, why wouldn't you want to have that as an attribute in your coach, you know? Tell me what you're doing today on behalf of P&G, Will. Yeah, I'm excited to get down to Vegas tonight for the P&G Battle of Paddles.

Tomorrow is the second annual one. We got eight NFL players in a tournament style competing on the table playing some ping pong. I'm a decent player myself, so I'm excited to get out and show off my skills.

But you can tune in to Overtime's season's YouTube channel tomorrow night, Wednesday, February 7th at 8 p.m. to watch us compete in some ping pong. And then I have to ask you, who do you have in the game? Oh, I mean, I'm not going to put out a formal pick, I don't think. I'm excited for both teams. It's hard to really pick and choose against either team.

I'm just looking for a good game. All right, so the last thing I'll ask you then, just a conversation with Brock Purdy. You know, I don't care if people call him a system quarterback, game manager, good quarterback, it doesn't matter to me.

But, you know, also like kind of similar to the Mike question I asked you, to kind of just laugh at the way that people obsess how you classify Brock Purdy as a quarterback. He's a winner. He's a winner. I don't know what you want to, he's won a lot of games. And for him to have, you know, people want to talk about an interesting draft night story for me. Are you kidding me? What about his story?

Like how can you hit on a story like that? And I love how he's just taken all the criticism, you know, on the chin and he always has the best answers. And he seems to be, you know, just a great individual and a great quarterback and a great leader for that team.

And I love to see him rocking and doing his thing. Well, Will, we appreciate the time. Thanks so much for getting into town and enjoying here in Vegas, all right?

Thank you so much. A Peanut Butter M&M's production. In a world where Super Bowl winners get the world's admiration and a fancy ring. But the runners up get nothing. One retired cop returns. That's one retired quarterback. Read the script.

Oh, sorry. One retired quarterback returns to claim what's his. Um, that's claim a ring with diamonds made from M&M's peanut butter.

But you're on a roll. The Ring of Comfort. Coming soon to a Super Bowl new you. OK, picture this.

It's Friday afternoon when a thought hits you. I can spend another weekend doing the same old whatever, or I can hop into my all new Hyundai Santa Fe and hit the road with available H track all wheel drive and three row seating. My whole family can head deep into the wild, conquer the weekend in the all new Hyundai Santa Fe. Visit HyundaiUSA.com or call 562-314-4603 for more details. Hyundai.
