Again I act I would say and that's Q just before we have we went on the air I. Am not sure this is me I'm getting cold like this is what happened two years and or. Before finally did you need to put it on your mail like return address the funding bill hall of Famer that's what I would do I would use that would jump on this like. Had that HO asks. Yeah. That's it how did you decide how did you find out did you even know like you Rick it it you know win in a smaller than this attack how. Well. I knew that I would nominated. One my coworkers who is preventing. Me as a nominee but you know you never expected there's so many people who are deserving candidate who committed their careers of industry and you know ultimately there's a vote in I had no idea what it was taken place there. Anything and so I was just. Notified with the lovely email earlier this week and sound a bit of shocked by it I haven't Ben came to work. Since that happened sometime take. They do truly have been listed as you can but I I've actually. And overwhelmed by the notes I think that the the bad part is. Just hearing from friends and colleagues and they can do have banded. So gracious so supportive and it's really touching animated. It that has been the best part my a and and puffing on vacation I think I get to appreciate it more just. But can I Twitter feed you thing main thousand Texans. You know I can't thank everyone enough. Spider one of the great things about you Hainan our listeners what would say the same as how accessible you are how how whether it's on Twitter or not. You know people and ask you something you're coming back to them I think that's why people love you so much how did you do it now with so many followers so many people asking you questions and seems like you. You do your best to get everyone on the minute drive you crazy these they probably doesn't keep you up late night. If you're very kind ID. You know I give my bad I definitely can't respond to every land and I try to be cognizant you have. If you're responding to one person's specific question it's. Really specific to their fancy team that not everyone wants to see that our Twitter. It is it is hard because there's only so much time of the day. Hope for the way it works that with Twitter you don't always see every single method you and so sometimes they're just things that I met but people have reached out through. To Graham and they say it's funny because all the different social media people can find you and it found something that catches my eye and look I know how I would want to be treated her fight. Wrote that someone or five with following them are asking for advice that really try to get back to the people who are. You know curious about getting into. Fantasy sports or how did you make this transition time. Being a physical therapist from the clinic in doing that but I really trying to talk to them because it's. I can only imagine it seemed like such an leap than you that there really wasn't a path what I did it was a sort of neat following things I was passionate about putting them together so. I I try but it's it's impossible to get everyone but I do appreciate. I'm sure looks like to do it sure looks like to do we are of course on the hall of Famer Stefani bell here on out to Jennifer and ESP diets to fight playoffs roll on this weekend. You're the big story lines are the returns of prominent wide receivers. Antonio Brown is back from the calf injury for the Steelers. Should we expect to see a full workload from him given that he's had you know 23 weeks to recover from a. I don't think we really know what to expect but I certainly don't believe the Steelers are going in planning on using him in a limited capacity. As a and you don't really know that your path to it until you do absolutely everything top speed and then what happens in the back and go OK it must be passed that. We thought baseball players because that when they explode out of the batter's box from the first it's not hard pushed. They can't be finding everything out and then I'll feel it there so that kind of brown obviously he's been back in practice this week he said he feels good but even he acknowledged that. LV eight maybe give you a little bit more time but it's not gonna live them when he goes out there. I don't think it's going to be at something that he finds out during the game just how healthy you expect. Remember the last time he was hurt we're watching in the warm out there wondering if he was gonna be okay that he went out and put up at me. You mormons so. Bad night. I'm not concerned about him to start but I do you think how we we're not gonna really know he's a 100% healthy until after that game. They're good point Chris Hogan carries no injury designation this weekend for the patriots. He did try to come back in December. Had one cat don't think he was a 100% how badly have the patriots missed him. Terribly. You have I mean I think one of the things that you probably saw from that week fourteen appearance when he tried to come back with that some of what he. Is responsible for which is blocking was part of what it was hard for him to do enough. Partly why he went back out for the rest of the regular season and so he spends. So helpful for that and both in the app individually and cattlemen and just in his toughness as a player you know I as your other types of lacrosse players super tough. And that's why he was even able to try and come back in week fourteen but. He's obviously another pass catching outlet for them that's been so reliable and without him. Things really dwindled bailout another pass catching running back James White the last couple weeks is they pick their pass catching hand the minutes. And I think it made them a little bit easier to read in terms of their offense they're going to be getting a lot of guys back. Right the right time in the coming in the patriot consistently done every year after injured latency than they just pulled them out. They typically have a first round bye I like they got it did yeah here before and then they get them back in the playoffs that you find that. Whatever level they're functioning at the use those guys at back at that capacity I think the fact that Hogan's off the insurer part Posey they don't plan on. And being limited in any way that much better point than what they try to come back a month ago. Marcus Mario has made some spectacular plays over the last couple weeks to help win games and he's the Foreman guys win games he's he's going key blocks to win against a bad out there. Seriously he's catches own passes for touchdowns right now. Yeah I like awareness. Serious clearing the theater that. What I want ask you how much of that by how much of his struggles do you think we're just not being fully healthy the hamstring injury I mean you'd you can CNN he's trying to stay in the pocket back the end it's just not his game now looks like he's fully healthy is defined in we're seeing all of Marcus Mario. I I now late in between that and the way they're running office yes I don't know. How much you can attribute that either part by the like we've ever seen everything operating on all fill out yet and that it now it's finally start to come together upstairs every time but because it's right now but. I feel like I need to see this. Consistently loud this season before it totally buy it. Yes something's happened when you're desperate educate no way the nineteen Q you lose to hear how at all of a sudden it's like okay I'm gonna do it effort. What Everett case doesn't matter I'm hoping that they didn't give it all up in the last game yet that they've got something left because they're gonna need it this week. DeMarco Murray not going to play again this weekend for the titans which obviously clears the way for Derrick Henry who who. I feel like he's really made the most is those opportunities do you think your hitters to fayed has shown that. You know going forward obviously averaging gonna carry two in an attempt is through running backs but do you think he's shown going forward. There he could be there at the feature back in Tennessee. I actually think he can get something really interesting. I watch that show NFL matchup I may not traditional I. That's really bad yes and one of the things that they talk about is their category struggles from time is in the past blocking and that. Is that an issue and maybe that's why they valued DeMarco Murray in the air so much for them some protection. Former scenario that so I think if he can get better. With some of those things they also didn't hear clearly showed it on the ground and there's no doubt about his ability they're still the thing to be one of those facts that. And he is pretty high volume at Alabama and he needs that. Rhythm I think to really showcase waging daily for him having the opportunity start I think that's helped. So are you buying into this rich story in New England in the sense that it wouldn't we see it show up on the field in terms of the alleged. You know that the tension between coach player owner of that kind of thing or do you think deserves to have. So maybe galvanized them harm to I'm leaning towards the latter I know about the patriot way. What do you think. So it ended two part answer that question no one is a part of this story Erica quicker sentiments I have no doubt about William who is a reporter. And so. I I I take his story at face value absolutely 100% and it doesn't surprise me that what the patriots response was quick to. You know bond together and you usually that they unified front and say oh we don't you know consists creepy cock were great to. I think that's what I would expect them to do isn't that how they handle their business. Whether it's. The thing it I don't know can be totally cover up for the tendons that are really care yeah if any team can sort of put things. Out of their mind and focus on the goal ahead I think because they're so conditioned to doing that whenever there's been any kind of sanctions. And they are at stake that they have I went to jail and have. They were able to have worked their way around back so. I don't think it's. That's the story itself for the struck some I think the contents of this story. They distract them I think that actual things that are behind it they're they're they're maybe some factors there that. But make it tough for them to overcome. Some of what's gone on and you know this what I think completely. Yeah not not just the generic part of the story but firm white covered the injury aspect if you look at Tom Brady Achilles injury that he had some people just. They don't. They can ignore the airport accompanied Tom Brady. They're like yeah whatever he got into quite a play he'll be fine and I think you know because of his history he's been able to persevere with liver ailment he's having been impressive. But he still forty and as far as they know he had been completely mastered the reverse aging process so when you have an Achilles injury he's kind of fit the demographic of your risk particularly if they're not saying it's gonna happen but so even that high risk category. And I don't think I do think it's affecting his performance if you look at. When he appeared on injured or it was I believe right after Mexico City it all before Mexico City to interceptions after that sex. You know triple the number of taxes not throwing it accurately he hasn't been himself. You cannot tell me and convince me that the injuries not you're Libya play threat absolutely. Is that a factor in his performance I believe it is though. I think a lot of things that are under the surface that they do a great job of covering up because of great coaching a lot of talent a lot of depth. At every position. But there are some weaknesses they're they can be exposed and who knows might happen here. And by the way that pitchers that patriots infighting might have been the one of the best things ever happened years ever Cisco 49. Yeah yeah yeah it's he can raise the benefits Imus went back and I. People who could be happier than me about giving grapple they have to go right out made. You see what the 49ers to did that turnaround. Yeah does he started on my content about the wedding I'm talking about. The way yeah excitement. In the Bay Area. Feeling in the wac career than the way all the players rallied around he'd definitely. Something that it will click that came out where he was my dad. And you eat that you could propel the way he talked to the players are. That everybody is all it and it's such a great feeling for knowing my team when it was so crazy man fought through some rough times and now. To see everybody feeling so positive about the future. I'm very excited for what's coming next here I think the NFC west is getting to open about. And Dahlia yeah without a doubt neither there's no better feeling. Then knowing you have a quarterback in the NF I mean that they did it they're just is not and you guys have won. And I heard someone say that yes this is like ask about dreams of putting together a package. Like giving her opera where you have all the physical skills you have the leadership component you have. The toy is not a play on the field in the pocket but also at the podium. And that got it did you green and hardly. Ever do you find that all in one individual so yeah we'll take it. You are lucky and yes yes and then while we're on the subject of the Bay Area your former colleague Jon Gruden has returned to the Oakland Raiders ten years 100. Million dollars it's that's a match and take heart attack. I think it's a fair deal arm. Other raiders going to live to regret this one day given the hefty in the long commitment or. Do you believe in in the magic in the power of Jon Gruden. Well I certainly believe that he is as passionate about being there as they are about having him I know that he is always had a soft spot. Heard the raiders to love this time they're just. You know I and getting to know him as much divided but certainly and I wasn't however misquoted him as some others but. He loved talking about. Being in the Bay Area he loves this kind of open as the favorite spots they heed to go I mean talk about the culture there. They just can't kick it fit and the people really responded to eight I'm a forty and her family but my mom is the die hard raiders fans Yi and he was. Over the manly she heard that great at coming back I think that's the feeling that most of raiders fans haven't if you watch him with that shows that he's done for us than in all of this quarterback cancer and I. Like I get fired up people you get fired up when he's in the ground and I think they could use a little bit about. Well I don't know what that you know how it's gonna play out in terms of the access that they're going to have but I certainly believe there's going to be an energy around it and you know his work ethic is fairly a match you look at the public free of reporting entity doing everything he can't read you know. Focus his energy out what ever it is is charged with he's certainly committed and that and that respect and emotionally committed and so. I like seeing. Guys get along contact your soul must turn over all the time I feel that some people don't ever get a chance to really prove themselves you know like if you don't do something and one year to year out now on to the next one and now back in the old days you had time to build something and I think having that security. I think that helps it and it helps you be able to invest in building a team and then build something towards the future without the feeling of you've got to do something right now or your house and I think that changes the way people approach to game and that's not for the better. Agreed to divided thank you so so I signed this congratulations on other success in grass on the induction. Thank you I'm still hit out what are your second like because when you wake up for that it'd be like now we're just to think. Okay go. Show up for the rest of your lives fighting congratulations thank you so much for doing this they've had it. And thank you.
