This QB or That QB? l Jay Wright coaching the Sixers next season? l Closing Bell

I'm just curious here. Lamar Jackson, Tom Brady, who, if you can, block out from what you've seen in the last hour, who would you have taken in this matchup? Oh, I thought the Bucks were going to win.

And this is not an indictment on Lamar. I just think the Bucks need this game more and you have a motivated Brady. Everyone's saying he's too old. He stinks now. I've just seen this script too many times.

I know it's easy to say now because it's 10-3, but I told you before this game started, I lean, lean towards the Bucks tonight. So I would go Brady in this contest. And just to reset the ground, also there's a first-time listener. This is, which court could you choose just for this week specifically? Yes, just this week. Not, you know, only one game with how they played so far for the first seven weeks in this specific matchup.

Who would you take? So you're taking Tom Brady over Lamar. Are you watching this NC State Virginia Tech game?

No, I'm not. They got a dog, a ball dog. The dog's retrieving the football.

That was awesome. Who is a ball dog, NC State? No, no, like a dog that retrieves the ball, not a ball dog. A ball dog? Yes, not a ball dog.

A ball dog. That's awesome. I don't know if that was a one-time thing because then they put like a harness kind of collar on the dog. But I guess you got to lift the dog off the leash.

So I don't know if that always happens. That was pretty damn cool. I don't... Maybe if NC State was, you know, kind of wild, you can train a wolf to do that. Yeah.

That'll be badass. You know me. This is not a popular statement what I'm about to make. Yeah, you hate fun. No, no, I don't hate fun. I'm the definition of fun.

Please, you don't try anything. I took you to Vegas and you wouldn't even try some escargot or creme brulee. You're boring. You went to bed at like 10 p.m. I'm boring.

I didn't have snail, fried snail. For me, Jake Asman and Dan Silverman were at the blackjack tables just going nuts and partying and having a great time. Hickey's sleeping. I'll admit, I was a loser. I was a total loser on that trip. I got to go to sleep. I don't sleep in Vegas. Come on.

I only sleep in Vegas if there's too much alcohol in the body and you're forced to go to sleep. Anyway, though, I don't love all the animals when it comes. That was cool because it was a dog running on the field when you got like a longhorn or you got the Georgia bulldog on the sideline.

Even what do they do it? Colorado get the Buffalo. Thank you.

Yes. The Buffalo, Colorado. Whenever you see those things. And then something goes wrong. I always say that they just shouldn't have animals on the field.

You're just asking for trouble. Does Temple have an owl? They do. Get them out. Get the owl out. And I've always wondered when I'm at the football game, not really that much of a thought because it's an open stadium. But when they bring the owl inside the Lea chorus center, which is only, I think, a 12000 seat building and had the owl fly around and then go right back on to its perch.

I always think that it's going to mess with someone and something wrong is going to happen. That's just me. They fly the war eagle like Auburn before the game. Stella the owl, by the way. Stella. Stella. It's a good name. You do better. They have a line at Penn State.

I think you need a tougher name than Stella. That's just me though. Okay. They do not have a line at Penn State. I wish they didn't. I wish that took them on the field. Yeah. I would. Hopefully they would eat you alive.

That's very nice. Back to the segment. Originally scheduled programming here in London 9 30 a.m. Eastern. Russell Wilson versus Trevor Lawrence. Who'd you rather have? Trevor Lawrence.

Not even close right now. Russell Wilson. His body's banged up. He's caring more about being a star off the field than a star on the field.

Doing high knees on the plane, which is just the fake like the fakest load of crap I've ever heard for four hours baloney. Give me Trevor Lawrence. How about a battle of the backups for the most part. P.J. Walker taken on for the most part of his career been a backup Marcus Mariano.

Who'd you rather have? Wilson playing low key kind of well. Well, P.J. was one game. Hey, his credit played better than Baker Mayfield did.

That's for sure. And I've seen more P.J. Walker than anybody on national radio. I would go Marcus Mariota because you know, he's going to kill you with your legs or put you in an advantageous position with his legs and they'll limit his throws.

I would go for this week. Mariota over P.J. Sorry, P.J. Cardinals at the Vikings. And also, let's be real.

Not that this factored into it. P.J. and I were texting this week to have a little back and forth. Then we hit him up to come on the show. Don't get a response back after that.

That's like where the conversation ends. Could have came on the show this week. Maybe he's just locked in the playbook. That's fair. And I won't hold it against him because I interviewed P.J.

the day he signed on at Temple. And I love P.J., but he should have been on the show this week. So, screw you, P.J. Let's go, Mariota. No, no, no, no.

That's what I'm saying. Thank you for the American Athletic Conference Championship. Kyler Murray or Kirk Cousins, who'd you rather have this week? Kirk.

1 o'clock game at home. Kirk. Kirk. Kyler is the better quarterback. The thing, though, that concerns me about Kyler now. It helps he gets the Andre Hopkins back.

And I may think about plusing the three-and-a-half points with the Cardinals this week because the Vikings really haven't played great competition yet. And not that the Cardinals are great competition, but it seems that maybe this... Maybe what's on his plate a little bit gets taken off because now the Andre Hopkins back. But it seems like that offense is just Kyler running around and make a play. And I think Kirk is set up in a better position. Not that he's going to be more flashy than Kyler. Not that he's going to be more explosive than Kyler. He can, though, spread out the football more to Justin Jefferson, Adam Thielen, K.J.

Osborne, Irv Smith Jr. You had the running game of Dalvin Cook. I just know what Kirk's going to be. He's never going to be great. He's just going to be good. Sometimes he falls flat on his face. But for Kyler, it's either all or nothing.

And that's what concerns me. Middle ground is what I'm saying with Kirk Cousins. This one might be a little tougher than we thought even a few weeks ago. We'd rather have for just this week only Mack Jones or Zach Wilson. Mack. And I'm just going to bank on that Mack has had more success in the NFL than Zach Wilson.

You're going to bank on that. It's Wednesday when he was named the starter instead of... He was going to be a starter the entire week. Monday night, right before the Bears game?

You know, Hickey, just because the games I play with the media doesn't mean that's what plays out publicly. I'm a Mack Jones guy, even though I sabotaged him with Joe Judge and that guy, Patricia. And don't get him a number one wide receiver, but I'm a Mack Jones guy. Thank you, Bill.

Thanks for joining us. Bill Belichick, everybody. I hope his communication is better this week than it was last. Let's just say that. We communicate in this organization. We communicate. And he communicates himself. You know, shut up. You're a knucklehead Colts fan. All right.

You have no hope. All that's missing is a 10 second pause in between the question asked and his answer. Yeah, that's true. That doesn't make good for radio.

No, you're right. We don't want the silent alarm to sound and then we have corporate call us. Why are you guys out of the air?

What's that glut? We were doing our best. Bill Belichick, a press station.

That includes 10 second pauses. You know, David Spike, Chris, Olivero, we had Bill Belichick on it. He just didn't say anything. Yeah. He would be a terrible interview.

That is for sure. I don't know how WEI does it sometimes, but you know, you had to start him off with. Hey, talk to us about the history of the long snapper. I think I have a good him with Belichick, even though when I went to training camp this year and asked about Baker Mayfield, he kind of didn't really give me a great answer. Belichick, one of Belichick's mentors is the late great Wayne Hardin, who used to coach at Navy and then also Temple. If I brought that up to Bill to start the interview, I think that would loosen him up a little bit for as loose as you're going to get. The only problem is then it's like 10 minutes in. And so you've only asked one question about a guy that's like, no one cares about all of a sudden, it's like three minutes.

No one cares about the national audience. Show some respect to the late great, the late great Wayne Hardin. No disrespect. He coached Roger Stalback. I'm just saying Roger Stalback loves the man or let's just say Bill Belichick was on the show tomorrow. Yeah. People care more about 15 minutes.

All that. No disrespect Wayne. No one wants to hear 10 minutes out of your, you know, how great of a coach he is and how much impact you imagine Bill Belichick. Could you imagine Maggie and Perloff had Belichick in studio and you know that wheel that they have where they, where they spin the wheel, but guess that it's like it picks a question to ask him and it's a fun wheel. Imagine Belichick in studio with them spinning the wheel. He would refuse to spin.

He would refuse to spin the wheel. Then they would do it for me and not answer the question. I don't do these gimmicks. All right. Bears. Get me out of the shell.

All right. That would be, yeah, that would, I would say not go very well for them, but it would be fun for us to watch. Tell us a fun story in your life. Tell us one time you smiled, Bill.

How about that? I'll take a line from Nick Saban. I did grocery shopping this off season.

You know, no one stocks a fridge like me. All right. Go ahead. Good one in the NFC West. 49ers Rams. Who would draw the half for just this week? Jimmy G. Matthew Stafford.

Wow. And you know, I do not like Jimmy J. I think for this week, I'd rather have Jimmy J. Stafford just turns over the football way too much these days and his offensive line is horrendous. And just like how I said, but Kyle and Mary and Kirk cousins for Kyle and Mary, it's like, oh, they're nothing. Not that Stafford is as athletic as Kyle and Mary, but it seems like he either plays greater.

He's horrible. I'll just take the more consistent Jimmy Garoppolo, I guess this week, this week only to be clear and the 49ers. They are the Rams. Daddy recently. That is true.

Jimmy G's never lost to them. Crazy. And somehow shot me face. Still gets thrown in the blender.

Anytime he goes against that Shanahan defense. All right. Scott. So long.

Tossed. Oh, good old Scotty. How about this matchup? We also are coming between two great quarterbacks in NFL.

So far, this is the one I've been dreading the most. You asking me if this is the one I think it is. Who would you rather have? Daniel Jones or Gino Smith. Does he still lead the league in completion percentage? I have to double check.

I believe so. This is the toughest one because Jones has been great running the football. And when they ask him to step up in the fourth quarter, he has stepped up.

Jeez. This is as close to a tie as you could get. Who would you rather have? Gino Smith or Daniel Jones, I have my answer, but who would you rather? I would take Gino in this matchup. I would slightly.

And I mean by like maybe by 1% extra. Give the edge to Gino in this one. Let's wrap up going from one great quarterback. By the way, Mark Andrews is leaving the game. I don't know what the injury is, but he's leaving the game. He's he looks wobbly walking off the field.

I'm seeing it right now at the corner of my eyes with medical personnel. He's walking off the field. Mark Andrews as the Ravens fourth and twenty two.

They have now punted the football back to the Buccaneers five forty seven to go in the second quarter of Tampa Bay up ten to three over the Ravens. And at least Amazon reporting it's a shoulder shoulder injury that he is looking at questionable to return for those fantasy owners out there or Ravens fans that are listening. Finally Sunday Night Football Zach Aaron Rodgers for Josh Allen. Who would you rather have?

Josh Allen not even close. You don't want someone who's going to complain for four quarters. Yell at someone for not doing their job correctly. Bitch about the game plan. Say bench everyone. Cut him. Yeah, he's doing the best Scott Zolak impersonation. Cut him.

Bench him. On my initial answer, did I stutter? No stuttering. That is the right answer.

It was without hesitation. Josh Allen. It is Zach Gelb show on CBS Sports Radio.

That was this QB or that QB for week eight in the National Football League. We'll take a time out when we do return on the Zach Gelb show on CBS Sports Radio. We will give you another update on Tampa Bay and the Ravens as I guess you could say if the Bucks go down the field here and get a touchdown with the way that the Ravens offense is looked in almost the first half.

Seventeen to three starts to feel like this game is getting out of reach. If the Bucks who go down march down the field and go get a touchdown picky. It could be getting very early or now with the Rangers potentially out to for the rest of the game.

We don't know if he's going to be out for the rest game but with him going to locker room that's a concern. Very true. We didn't mention the Ravens are the worst team with the lead. Maybe this is you know they got to get themselves in a double digit deficit all of a sudden.

That's when they start going. Yeah. Joke was like so 30 minutes ago. I'm just making a point. I'm making a point. Yeah. That was a joke.

That was a jerk response. I'm trying to hype myself up for my Ravens pick on the day to give myself some hope for the second half. By the way. I live in optimism. I have one this QB or that QB for you.

Taylor Heineken or Sam Ellinger this weekend. I was going to include it but. Why was that not asked? That's an egregious error. I don't know.

I'm egregious. You asked me PJ Walker Marcus Mariota. I think it's a fair question. They're closer together than Sam Ellinger or Taylor Heineken. I don't think either would be very good. I will take Taylor Heineken.

Okay. So you're rooting for the commanders this weekend. I am rooting for the commanders this weekend. We are commanders.

So you fully embrace the tank is what you're saying. I will say I did pick them to win. My game picks on the year are horrendous. Oh no.

I am one in six through seven games picking Colts games. Oh no. Oh no.

Oh no no no no no. I kind of screwed myself. I should have done the old reverse push and picked the Colts to win this game. But I do think it's going to be ugly and I do think it's going to be a commander's win. Well my picks haven't been good either. And I like the commander's to this weekend.

And not only that since you like them and I like them that's fade fade fade fade. That could be a fade this week. Maybe they'll play. I think one thing we're overlooking both here in this is that maybe they'll play inspired for Dan Snyder.

I don't know if he'll be at the game. Maybe they'll say we're going to win one for Dan win one for our owners got attacked. No the players don't like Dan Snyder other than that his name is on their paycheck. They don't like that. Well that's the check clears.

I'm just trying to talk myself into anything here to believe the commander's win. No I would love to see a wrestling match though at halftime between Jim Irsay and Dan Snyder. Did he go go to the game. He goes to every game Dan Snyder.

I don't know. It wouldn't surprise me if Dan Snyder goes to the game and before the game you get a report. Remember like those clowns from Penn State that James Franklin was basically trying to incite a riot at halftime between Penn State and Michigan. It would not surprise me if before the game or at halftime you get some Adam Schefter tweet that we all think is a fake tweet like a ball sack sports tweet where Dan Snyder walked over to Jim Irsay's luxury box at Lucas oil stadium and tried to start a fight. That would not surprise me and we see like Dan Snyder with a crack beer bottle some image of him trying to smack Jim Irsay over the head. If they focus more on the luxury boxes and the owners boxes than the game I would be okay with it. Probably more entertaining.

I would totally agree. Not that I want to see Dan Snyder or really Jim Irsay but if you had a camera on both of them I think it would be better than the game. Does Jim Irsay let him in.

It's a dumb question but I don't know. He would not that Jim Irsay seems like he's usually the bigger man but I think he'd be the bigger man in this scenario because Dan Snyder he's a he's a petulant little man if you know what I'm saying. Oh that he is.

He is one big salty baby and that's probably the nicest way that I could say without getting fired from my job. The Ravens are getting the football back. Brady and Evan just can't get on the same page.

They're trying but it's just not working. So Lamar got the ball back with 448 to go. It is the Zach Gelb show on CBS Sports Radio. It is the Zach Gelb show on CBS Sports.

I would love next year. And I think we've developed a good enough relationship with Roman Harper. As you just heard from that rejoin, he listens to the show. And there'll be random times during the show that he will text me.

As he listens to us on WFNZ in Charlotte, because that's where he still lives. I think we've developed a good enough relationship with Roman. Where you could have a little bit of an ask and a little bit of a request. That you probably shouldn't, but will do so anyway. I think next year, we get to be his entourage. Hot take, Hickey. Not every week, but just one week.

Like one SEC Network game. Wherever they're going, wherever they're traveling. Where we get to be his plus one. And I'll incorporate you into that conversation as well. If he tells me I only got one ticket.

Sorry, your SOL on that one. But I think we should bring that next time up to Roman Harper. When he's on the show and kind of just put him on the spot. Will we like follow him around, kind of sit behind stages. He's doing the show on Saturday morning. Is that what you're saying?

I got to get up early Saturday morning then. Well, SEC Nation, that's what he does. Well, yeah, I guess I would go. No, but I'm sure they go to the game, right?

That I do not know. I would think, well, you never know. Wouldn't surprise me if he skips out of the game. But if we're going to whatever big SEC game there is, that they're there at broadcasting in the morning. I think then we included that we got some sideline passes, you know, luxury box seats and hooked up. Wow. You're going all and not just like a ticket to the game or just, you know, general mission.

Go find a seat. Side line passes, meet and greet with the coach. Maybe get to call play too, like the first quarter.

Yeah, get orders around would say in the movie, The Blind Side. SJ, I'll let you throw a sideline pass. Do something like that. Maybe, I guess it depends on, I'm trying to think, what's the school, what would be cool? Alabama would be awesome. Alabama, LSU, Tennessee, you know, big time environments. Like if we go to South Carolina, I could like drive the rooster mobile around, kind of a Sir Big Spur, like, you know, he's handler.

I don't know. That Sir Big Spur was very controversial this year with all the names. But yeah, it's okay.

The families, you know, the two families have come together. What was it? The Cock Commander? That was an alternative that was rejected for whatever reason.

And what was the other one that I really liked? Oh, Cock-a-doodle-do. Clock Norris.

Clock Norris was good. Yeah. Those are good ones.

I don't know. Darius Clucker. That was a good one. I mean, we're going to take advantage of that program. But if we're going to take advantage of Roman Harper's connections, I think with him going to Alabama, we'd have to go to Alabama.

Death Valley and now he'd be sick. Sick. It would be.

Well, let's do this. Can we just look at the Alabama football schedule next year? Because I would have to imagine that the majority of their trips have to do with Alabama games on the SEC network. You would think you would think, but also I think they try to also show love to everyone because it's an SEC.

But you could identify the big, big games there. And they've gone to Kentucky. They've gone to South Carolina. Would they? Would they? Would they?

Would they? Go to Alabama against a non-conference. Who are they playing next year, maybe?

Texas. Oh, they'd definitely probably be there. And that's at Bryant-Denny Stadium.

Probably. It's going to be hot, but that'd be fun. Ole Miss. That game's in Alabama.

Ole Miss and the Grove would be sick. That's another. I'd love to get dressed up. We're a little bow-tie suspenders. Go down there. Bow-tie and suspenders. You've got to look the part.

You can't just show up looking like we do on a normal basis. Oh, they play Tennessee next year in Alabama. When in Oxford? They play LSU in Alabama next year. Iron Bowl? Now it's in Auburn, but Alabama, Auburn, and Iron Bowl would be cool. And who knows? It'll be coach in Auburn next year.

You freeze. Could be Dion Sanders against Nick Saban. The Aflac Bowl. Maybe you have the Aflac Duck run out at halftime. Quack, quack. That's the one time I would support an animal on the field at a college football game. The Aflac Duck doing the pre-game tointas. Yeah.

No, I would definitely beat down. Anyway, I have an NBA prediction for you. Five games into a season, I'm already ready to predict a firing, an eventual firing of a current coach. I think by the end of the year, and I don't even know if he gets to the end of the year, Doc Rivers is out with the Philadelphia 76ers. They are one and four to start off this season.

Their lone win is up against Indiana. I don't like the construction of this team. I love Joel Embiid, but my biggest problem, even though he's in shape now and he looks motivated is that when James Harden needs to be your big time number two piece to go make a clutch shot, I don't trust James Harden in a big moment. He's just not a big time player. He's a Hall of Famer.

He's a great player, but he's not a clutch player. And I do think you can't keep on defending Doc with some of his shortcomings as well. I think Doc will be done at the latest by the end of the season and I'm ready to predict already his replacement. I think coaching the Sixers to start next year is Jay Wright. Jay Wright accomplished everything he could have imagined and then some at Villanova. He turned Villanova into a blue blood and won two national championships. I don't know if it was the changing landscape of college basketball where Jay Wright was like, yeah, I'm done.

Or if Jay Wright just said, I wanna enjoy my life. But I do think that basketball will come back calling for Jay Wright. I don't think he'll take another college job. But I do see him potentially going to the NBA and I think you would need to be close to home. He lives right off the main line in Philadelphia and I think the Sixers would be a perfect fit. That's been rumored for years when Brett Brown was there.

I think him and Brett Brown were close, so maybe you didn't want that to go down that way. I don't know if he has any relationship with Doc Rivers, but if they get rid of Doc, I think that's the next job. Jay Wright with the Sixers is my prediction next year, already on to 2023 basketball predictions.

I would be surprised. He doesn't strike me as a guy who is gonna go back on his word. He retired, stepped away from Villanova. He's doing a little analyst role now. So he's getting that basketball fix, if you will, without the day-to-day grind. If we don't know why he retired. He's already doing games for CBS now.

Right, so you get a little bit of both. Now he could go do the CBS thing for the rest of his life and I think he would be a superstar. And maybe, I know he's a studio guy now for the Final Four and he's doing some other games and I think he's calling the Villanova games coming up soon. I just read that sometime this week. I could see Jay Wright and Ian Eagle be the new broadcast team as Ian Eagle is now going to take over for Jim Nance. What is it after this year?

I think it is. This is the last Final Four for Jim Nance. Now I will say there is an article and this was in April. This was in late April where Jay Wright did admit that he could be lured back to coaching by an NBA job. He said that when he was on ESPN Radio's Keyshawn J.

Will and Max. So not right now. That was something I always thought about Wright said when asked if he thought about coaching in the NBA. My experience with the Olympics kind of scratched that itch. I kind of feel like I did a little bit and I love coaching those guys. And he did go on to say, right now I definitely need a break. Right now I'm looking forward to this special assistant position at Villanova but honestly, down the road I'd be lying.

I don't know what I'm going to feel like. It doesn't seem like a guy that's going to stay retired forever. I think he's being honest.

I don't know. Maybe you're right. Maybe the analyst role is not enough and he wants to get back or maybe it's just enough and he goes, you know what? I'm living a good life right now.

I'm set. I'm calling some college basketball games and I'm just having a good time. Well, there's no risk for him. He just coaches the Sixers. He will always be remembered for being a great college basketball coach. He's not going to be a moron like Urban Meyer where he's going to make it an embarrassment if it doesn't go well in the professional sport. Like he may not have success in the NBA, but it's not good to tarnish his legacy.

It's not going to make you think any differently about Jay Wright. No, but also too it's an adjustment, you know, NBA game is how you treat and manage players a lot different than college. But with how college basketball is now, it's very sort of like professional sports now. So the itch of it the last few years or the look of it the last few years and he did coach the Olympic team.

I know it's not the regular grind of a day to day season. I could see Jay wearing a suit on an NBA sideline. I really couldn't. I think it's going to be in Philadelphia next year. They give you wearing a suit?

I don't know. I think you'd go the quarter zip route now that everyone is doing post pandemic where all those coaches kind of ditch the suit. You're probably right. You think we'll ever see an NFL coach again in a suit?

I hope not. That irrationally drove me insane. Who is the guy in San Francisco? Mike Nolan. Mike Nolan, who would wear a suit?

Jack Del Rio and Jacksonville, it drove me, it got me so mad. If I was coaching, I would be wearing sweatpants all day, sometimes even like shorts. I don't care if I look like a slobber on a sideline coaching. Marco, a man of big time class and always wears the nicest clothing in the world. As he said, jeans and a band t-shirt each and every day. Yeah, I'm GQ all the way. Marco Valetti, GQ, that is the first thing I think of. What would be your coaching attire?

Whatever would be comfortable to get through the three hours. The Bob Huggins look. But I don't get why, Bob Huggins, love Bob Huggins. I don't get why Ryan would be so annoyed with the suit though. I don't get it. Maybe, is it, because he didn't, did you not grow up with any of it? I mean, I feel like the Tom Landry's. No, I did not. You know, the Hank Strams.

Like none of that stuff. Vince Lombardi, I did not grow up with those suits. Vince Lombardi, no, I mean. They're not going to like this when we're on in Miami, but I did always like when Al Golden wore the tie on the sideline. I have no problem with it if you want to wear it. I have no problem if you don't want to wear it either, but I mean, Tom Landry looked good in the suit.

I'm not going to. Now, I love our old boss, Mark Chernoff, but Mark Chernoff was very against people wearing shorts to work and there was a policy you couldn't wear shorts to work unless if you were like Mike Francesco. There was a policy? Greg Cardin. Oh, yeah.

I got in big time trouble hosting an overnight, well, not big time trouble, but I was hosting an overnight and I wore shorts and a T-shirt in the summer to the overnight. And Boomer Asiason said, what are you shooting hoops? And I thought he was just like kidding. And I was like, oh, okay.

Yeah. You know, I was doing the overnight Boomer complained to Mark. Mark was not happy. I had to apologize to Boomer and I made some joke that I was going to wear a tuxedo next time. And I came in the next day with a tuxedo shirt, like one of those shirts.

But Chernoff was not happy. Now when Chernoff left, I was wearing shorts a few weeks ago and you know, ever really since the pandemic started, that policy kind of went away because I was here. If I'm here, I'm wearing whatever I wanted at the time of the early stages of the pandemic. And Oliveira goes, you know, if Mark was still here, he wouldn't be happy if you're wearing shorts.

But I support, I supported you actually. I think everyone should be allowed to wear shorts. I got to tell you. We're doing radio. Never knew the policy.

Had no idea. You are not the only one that I've ever seen in shorts around here, so I'm stunned. If I could see Boomer taking a shot at you, I mean, that's, you know, what it was. And I love Boomer. I was going to say, Boomer's awesome. But Boomer, I think it was because I was younger. Yeah, no, he's putting you in your place. And that's fine.

Traditional, chivalrous, that kind of stuff. You know, don't wear shorts. I get it from Boomer's perspective. You're young. You're filling in on the fan on the overnight. Act apart.

Let's not the fan is here. Either way, act apart and look like, you know, you have a little bit of self-respect. I get Boomer's point of view. They were nice shorts. Well, I get Boomer's point of view.

I understand that. If you were 45, I'm pretty sure he wouldn't have took the shot at you. I think he was just putting you in your place. Well, now I wear shorts. I was just completely unaware of the policy. I wonder if there's a no flannel policy.

Have I been against the company for a long time now? That's like, who knew? That is black tie if you wear a flannel shirt around here. I was unaware. No hat policy. I don't know. I've never checked these policies.

Why don't we know the Yankees? I don't know. I've never checked. Well, that would be a problem. I have a beard. I didn't know these policies. I didn't realize we had them. Well, also, before you got this job, you were usually never here during the daytime hours. That's a little bit of a stretch. I've done all the different times of the day.

But your usual slide. Usually I'm at night. They like to keep me in the dark with the mushrooms. I'm aware of that. But I've been here.

I've been here many a times during the day. If I was doing 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. or 6 to 10 a.m. or 2 to 6 p.m. when this was happening. You wouldn't have put the shorts on? No.

Because during business office hours, I would have maybe wore jeans or sweatpants or something like that. Okay. All right. Since it was 2 to 6 a.m., I'm like, okay, get out of here at 6.

No one's seeing me. All right. You know what?

I'm siding more and more on Boomer's side. Because if you were going to say, you know what? I'm wearing it whenever I want to wear it. I would have, you know, given you credit for it now that you're telling me it's because you feel that these hours are beneath you that you might want to I think you might want to reevaluate.

Yeah. And whether you're on a 4 a.m. or you're on a 4 in the afternoon at the same part now at the time, I was like 70 pounds heavier. So maybe Boomer just didn't want to see my legs at the time. Well, now in fairness, we still don't want to see my calves look great.

I got great calves right now. I'll take your word for it. I'll show you though. I'm good. Thank you. I'll give you a sneak. No, no, no.

I'm all right. Is there something really absurd that skeaves you out? Getting a paper cut on my eyeball. A fear you can't shake. I'm going to leak ocular fluid on 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.

That's right. It is the Zach Gelb Show at CBS Sports Radio. Ten three at halftime. Buccaneers and Ravens, Justin Tucker's 61-yard field goal was blocked.

So it's ten three at halftime. Hickey, another high-scoring game on Thursday Night Football. I guess we ruined all the points last week when you had the pick six affair with Andy Dalton going up against the Arizona Cardinals. I guess we got all the points out in that game because for most of the season, this has been dreadful on Thursday Night Football. I guess you got to blame Kirk, right?

How so? New face. Oh, Kirk Kirk's feet. Sorry. Yes, Kirk Kirk's feet.

My apologies. Kirk Cousins playing Thursday Night Football yet this year? Sal Michaels. I mean, look, Sunday night, the games are always pretty good for the most part.

Or maybe Al is just bed in the unders and he has the gambling gods who have always been a proponent of his in the good graces this year. Me? You know what? That's actually a great one.

That's probably more likely. By the way, you see the seltzer that they had in the newsroom? Liquid death.

It's called liquid death. And it's not alcoholic. No. Not an alcoholic. I should say. No. I wish it was alcoholic.

But the way this game is going on right now. That looks like if you should show me that without saying it's a seltzer, I would have heard it was a beer. Right. Like if management watches our cameras right now in the studio and they see me with this because I cracked open one of these bad boys, they'd probably think I'm drinking a Guinness. It looks like Guinness. Black can, white lettering, gold top.

It does look very nice. It looks like an IPA or like one of those like craft brewery beers. Sprinkling water straight from the Alps, their slogan for liquid death, murder your thirst.

Where do we get this? That's you know what? I give them I give marketing credit. This is great.

That's a that's a good slogan. Do you like seltzer? I do not.

Oh, you suck. Hate the bubbles. I'm a huge seltzer fan. I do not drink soda, but seltzer I drink. My family growing up, we had the soda stream where it would be the homemade seltzer maker.

Yeah. And it would come with all the soda packets and we would just get rid of them and just use seltzer that fresh seltzer, there's nothing like it. I love seltzer. So I saw this and I thought it was beer just, you know, we got maybe a beer delivery and then people were just taking a few beers home and stuff like that. And then I looked at it and go, oh, sparkling water.

So big fan of it. Liquid death. Never associate that with just a little spring water. Hopefully I don't croak. That's true. Well, it's good news. We got five minutes left. So worst case scenario, we should be able to make it through. Now I'm a large body that you'd have to move out here. A lot of liquid deaths to put you down. That'd be a lot of dead weight.

Have you heard that about that? Let's get to the closing bell. Another day is in the books and we're taking stock of the sports world. It's time to find out who's up and who's down.

Let's end the day right and hit the closing bell. Only on the Sac Galb show, let's start things off with the Seattle Seahawks and the New York Giants. The Giants are six and one. The Seahawks are four and three. It's the lone above 500 matchup this weekend between both teams going up against one another Seahawks believe in their coach, P Cal tried to prove a point. The Giants, they finally have a competent coach for the first time in what since Tom Coughlin and McAdoo was a disaster. Shermer Stunk and Joe Judge was a fake tough guy.

He was all talk, never backed it up though. So the Seahawks and the Giants best matchup of the weekend, I guess some would say stock up. This Chiefs Giants trade today, I think very fair for both sides. Cadairious Tony.

I don't know. He seems like he'd be a little bit of a pain in the ass at times, but with that being said, he is a first round talent and he's never healthy so far. So now he goes from the Giants to the Chiefs where I know the Giants have a better record this year, but you do have Patrick Mahomes in Kansas city and they're looking for all the weapons in the world since Tyree killed, did leave. And for the Giants, if you didn't love this guy and this regime didn't draft him with Joe Shane and Brian day ball, you get back a third and a six.

Most of the times in this industry, right? We have to pick a side and say, Oh, this team won the deal. This team lost the deal.

Give me your thoughts, eight, five, five, two, one, two, four CBS. I think this is a good trade for both sides. Give a stock up to the Chiefs and the Giants. Mack Jones, Belichick finally gave him the validation and the reassurance that he was going to be the start of this week.

Maybe did so behind the scenes, but at least we now know he did so publicly today. Give Mack Jones stock up. But Daniel Hackett, the fact that you needed to have your GM give you a vote of confidence today and say he believes in you 110% shows me that you don't actually have the belief and support of your GM. Cause I don't think there's ever been a coach in the history of coaching hot take hickey. We're a team at expectations this year and seven games and everyone said it's not a matter of if he's going to get fired, just one, if you have to give a vote of confidence to someone seven weeks in, that means it's a bunch of baloney, whatever that vote of confidence is. So stock down to Nathaniel Hackett.

Also there's a possibility he could lose this game, have to go back on the flight, not know if he's fired and then get fired the moment when he lands or on Monday. So a stock down to Nathaniel Hackett, the Brooklyn Nets are one and three. The Los Angeles Lakers are 0 and 4 last night, the Brooklyn Nets did lose to the Milwaukee Bucks. And we know the Los Angeles Lakers in their latest game did lose, I believe to the Denver Nuggets as that was last night on Wednesday, lost to the Denver Nuggets. So the Lakers so far, they lost to Golden State, the Clippers, Portland, and Denver. Yikes.

One win early stage between both those teams. Hire a bowl, stock down to both the Lakers and also the Brooklyn Nets. And finally, did you see the renderings of the possible new stadium for the Buffalo Bills?

Yes. I thought at first they put a roof on the place. Now that was misleading.

It was just a very fancy drawing. A lot of people want a roof on the Bills Stadium. What's wrong with you people? When I think of Buffalo, I think of craziness, mayhem, out in the cold, wings, beer, food, family, chaos. I just went to a Bills playoff game.

It's negative two degrees. I froze my ass off. Yeah, I saw my football team get destroyed by the Bills, but it was just fun being outside even though I couldn't feel my feet afterwards. That's Buffalo football. Don't you dare get so soft in the year of 2022, we need a dome.

I don't want to see a dome whatsoever, and I'm glad the renderings actually didn't have a dome or a roof on top of that place. Stock down to anyone wanting a roof on the Bills new stadium. And that's the Zach Gilb Show on CBS Sports Radio. Great show today. Big thanks to Tom McCarthy, Shelby Harris, and Le'Veon Bell for stopping by. They just kicked off the second half between the Baltimore Ravens and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

And the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are leading in this game 10 to three. We'll be back tomorrow with the big football Friday on the Zach Gilb Show on CBS Sports Radio. Thanks to all of you. Thanks to Hot Tiki. See you tomorrow.

Fucks have the ball. We out. Bye-bye. Is there something really absurd that skews you out? Getting a paper cut on my eyeball. A fear you can't shake. I'm going to leak ocular fluid on my cheeks is going to go into my mouth and I will perish. Whatever scares you.
