Minnesota and Iowa and that might not want pulling its fired up. Now he's the 901 Nintendo won't. Then 901 commercial fields I've come. Then listen Nintendo one for Chris Harrington nine. It's judo and Chris Aronson of the commercial appeal joins us now Chris what are we listening to him on at. That was not a word I at a hospital by Conor O worst and Xerox singer songwriter wrote. Some are now on his plate assuredly would call this week. Does is he now just exclusively solo artist he's still occasionally. Put out a bright eyes record. I'm as far as I know bright eyes is no longer college sperm that was so bad sort of started. As a teenager I know what to believe that was sort kicked our bad. Actually play the got a New Delhi to eat yours or aero. That they came out in the nineties. Late ninety's I guess the early 2000. And that sort of watched him I think he's pretty much just a solo guy announced. Chris the 901 is up currently at commercial appeal dot com believe it is episode three you mentioned yesterday episode three. Sun records. Overall. How are are you still intrigue he's still hooked on the show or any kind of watching because it's it's Memphis based. Well I'm watching because I brilliant person in the subject matter in addition to being set an episode so that's. That's a double whammy for me and from those you know the music history and debt you have. It being filmed locally. It is not. It is thought I had I don't think in a way that accrued shook yours are on the Thabeet yeah. There was set an effort all common oral and that was actively bad. It was not bad vicious rat I'm disappointed that it's not there's interest DS could eat. Issued a little boy and I think some of that is it's actually. Observers and some leisure Packers are playing you know beyond opposite Johnny Cash Jerry Lewis horrible lie ahead and show just doesn't happen tech sure and drama that it could hit some a little disappointed and but I would I would I'm I would encourage anyone and that's just watch it. Good eight with some theorists have a big deal of introduction this sort of watch the CD Holmes film insert locations spots but also it actually does like eight. By the standards of what network television I think it does a pretty good parties such serious job of tallied. Well I think it's some of the most important yet it's history certainly but also some of the most important. Cultural history of the whole country and so I would I'd recommend it on those grounds that certainly is not and so it's a piece of actual drama it is now understood receive could be. Any chance they're laying the found work kind of a slow Bernard DR year more or more of your criticisms more based on execution. I think they you know I think it's early this execution problem but I didn't think there there's a chance to play our. This sort of take their time with the trajectory which I appreciate. Well poorer general and it's probably political problem because. I'm Albert hadn't done any yet. So once they really sort of get into that well this story and it looks like astronaut story next week's episode of each and I'll walk insists on studio crew part time. What is our solid more familiar like Elvis story directly media might kick up. Speaking of or execution. Of the Memphis Grizzlies. You've continued their kind of their slide into the of this you were there last night kind of what we're. I felt it seemed to me yesterday that you kind of expected this he kind of sawed it it coming because your bibles and you're really Smart. But he did it is that is is that fair my putting words in your mouth. I don't know I was not surprised by the outcome necessarily. A whole big sort of bewildering to me. Hear about the they would lose the clippers by double digits I could happen in the past spartans but I don't really understand it. This is such. Service self created extra problems they're already having issues in terms of general Orton not eating veterans were trying to force that a mark. Or consultants want being an. They don't have hundred their talents. The middle that Ross are average at best and there are not I'll be nuts to use the so they know what the problem that. Already festering for a while network wriggle away. But it you're able to build what they could do it they'll just sort of consider trying to make you think better to treat these horse for no particularly good reason that I can tell she. And so it was sort of way over to me last sight to watch him so you know in the second. And so the second time you know a new lineup. Clearly he made some basketball decision that he wanted to get a book maker or a no brainer right that's our line up. And then he came out the second half neither did they combined for twelve minutes and I don't think it was the right decision to report Aaron Broussard lined up for various reasons we could talk about. The if you look pretty good in the first quarter and Marcus hall and so I don't know. If you're coaching you you you believed in that to deploy that you made quite a change a bit it actually look pretty good out of the gate. I don't know why you abandoned so and so. The consumer Bjork a hole in sort of a lack of confidence generally. Coming from the coaching staff and on to what they were trying to do you Israel's tortured you know just shake it up out. Around slam or published Ouattara are the whole thing awoke each. Yet to meet is it's not I made the analogy that Jeff just a second ago but it's it's almost like you know algebra. Or or calculus in which. You have your core principles you can expound on them which I do feel like David says don't hit a really nice job he. He really added new elements without abandoning the core of what the Memphis Grizzlies are he had a new elements with making mark. Extending mark making him a legitimate perimeter threat to score you'd EU and it took my comments offensive game to a completely new level. You made some really good adjustments he you've got Zack to be an efficient. Score and legitimate option for you and your second union to Michael Green FL like has been one of the most consistent auctions that and that made their team. Collectively better but. It almost feels like now they're just abandoning the principles they got on their. Yet the pocket huge overreaction. To a spare Lee. Apparently. Typical sort of called beta this season flaw or it's not unprecedented the locker rough patch you know after the all star break at that point in the season. And instead of sort of since soldiering through that sort of you know getting guys to pick up their act orbiter focused. Which is she lucky the whole lineup juggling was just an overreaction to what to work to erupt actually be wasn't. That bad I mean you know I mean day. Can buy an all star break immigrant labor are also great guard the big win over Phoenix was what much crap they want that in quote which occurred when it. And then you know they've lost a close game that I'll tell a really good lately who would like or wrote that balanced that's been supporting me but it's no big deal. Then you get run out and check right back to back its Houston switched. You know I don't think overreacted to that little rough patch and am in these sort of made he's made it all works as a consequence. So as the other day I think it's sort of the foundational problem with this scene has been. That a whole. The whole idea of both changing the style of play. And increasing much feeling much better obscenely. Both of those things award entirely predicated on channel ports. And Beckett and that just came up empty and so. I think I think four for most of the seat and they have done those two deranged. Transition must double play wall what wall maintain a playoff caliber Jeep. They have done those things very well given that they've gotten it's not only about the gel or got negative about each JR. If you'd told be before the seat and they would get negative values and Chandler Parsons and then they would be you know a few games ago the Portuguese or 500. And market saw Mike I'll have a career high scoring averages and you know. I would have thought that was that was a really good outcome and it walks. The police so already you're gonna go back without arson suspect herb score crater and a wide out. And without that decide that your users who is into jerky searching for stealing. That was supposed to be their corporate support center now is not possible. In and searching for this feeling that you're you're never gonna find. You're sort of wrecking sort of the baseline foundation what the team that is. It's kind of why keep coming back to the fact that you know I I think. People can that people can laugh at my propensity to look at what Vegas thinks and what not but. Par other reason why I think Vegas came out with 43 and a half when totaled they did is that. They always factor in a first year coach. Even though I do you think David has done fantastic things and is really. Helped I think lay a foundation to help the grizzlies perhaps take the next step next year still first your coaching to me. It felt like a love what you said last week. If you would have seen if you look at the Dallas lost in a vacuum that lost make complete sense. Use the odds and do you realistically going to Houston and sweeping on the road we're not likely is it just feels like. He it feels like the emotion of the moment got the better perspective to me. Yeah I agree it's a good solid the whole idea of canola assemblies mediocrity in March. The told sort of Miami mindset. I wrote a certain week. You know he won titles Miami actually insist that that coach as an assistant and having sort of that expectation and doctors sound good in us down by. But the reality is pretty in shock all you want younger Shockley your your way to LeBron James and white way I mean in the NBA there's a certain. There's a certain feeling don't know what it means going to be based on their personnel and you don't want players and coaches that sort of always says all the time. At the end of the day that sort of the that is they re now. And so surprise me now again I just so this is all going to be over calculation. And over just that and I think if he would stop or something more steady and will announce the team. But something more solid appliance that he would have steadied itself and that got back on track the degree that it's people bought it and it's tower. And now the whole thing is just hot you know we. It's it would collapse right or out of whack and that I think that's that's impacted the player's mentality players' attitude and are now. And and that opinions are on edge and then came so I don't know market its nearest dealer relief. I really bad and chocolate but came at a bad this year got a but it wasn't good to Rosser looked ultra injury. I mean would they they root canal in similar. Soros. State down the stretch and then get blown away why all the same thing that happened last year and it happened this week and we'll be solved and what did and that's much harder to get away. Speaking with Chris Harrington of the commercial appeal he is the writer of the 901. This is that I don't want it to one present are not of one pony and read the 901 at commercial appeal dot com you can follow Chris on Twitter. At Chris Harrington if you want his NBA stop eating pollen at Harrington in BA. Chris just made a point at the end of the very last segment that I that I thought was interesting and you just alluded to you. Certain aspects of it. How much do you think the fact that that David is still spent much of his lead assistant days coaching LeBron and coaching. You know. If not the best player of all time certainly got probably in the top five. How much do you think that's impacting the wave that he is handling this team because it's almost like he's looking in expecting. For a LeBron can that's an unrealistic expectation. Hacking targets on the court right early it looked like. In the locker room and in in terms of like a roll. A player's gonna take oil and all of small. And our LeBron James consumer demand so what I thought control. You know of an entire organization. You know really. And the idea that every team that's gonna have league players who go to eight or not load will demand that quote. You know I don't think I don't think it's I don't think that's I don't think that expectation that only arrested at the grizzlies are suspect at least the core players who might currently markets all. I suspect that that expectation will be erupt yet would not watch it all out or eight car seats. Yes and as we close here it it's almost like. You've alluded to it more Marcus a whole is not LeBron James in every which way but it's almost like he. David keeps looking at mark to be LeBron and it's almost like it's an unrealistic expectation. However in fairness to this is and you alluded to yesterday. To my eyes Marc Gasol still not playing to really in my opinion what he should be playing it is that we is that they urged that unfair. Even if you can keep him healthy Vermont and that's actually. A rule briefing yesterday and Cadillac at a final section right it could do this all access. Iran at a time of it should produce our I didn't do it. But for all the focus on Chandler Parsons and the sorry lions which you're just down everything else. Most important thing for the Broussard now that's probably Marcus hall. And here that the bad commute like he had a 27. Bible whatever was last night he's been okay. He had a bit all NBA Marcus hall or for about a must now. He would have been the player in the middle of season who was averaging. You know 2324 point five points a game grow long stretches. Was played like it ought to put out a dog that was really Lee. Sort of putting putting their stamp on the game and in control maintains that a player such that it not happen or at least a mark here as he had spurts. The most police source settled back into the mix he's been. I iams sort of take what comes to a mosque as a player. If you wouldn't be total player that is sort of struggling we'll breakdowns are out and I don't think it's all of them all MP and but I think that quarterback role that he will replace sleep in a linebacker role probably not what you all guys that that's the role we each can completely sensibly. They're working really expelled more than it individual defender that hasn't been functioning well and partly as a PD clintons were looking bad out. It's a good solid system like another player put some decent numbers not a guy who is truly hacking gangs Kuwaiti was from the middle. And I wonder part of that is the emphasis on trying to make mark Mike Conley between farmers score which I'm not sure. I'd say if I totally buy into that I don't like so it's sort sort of channel important thing where. The emphasis on getting channel or what's healthiest thing to supersede or Turkey goal when he. I worry impetus on making my commonly used or superseded the war Turkey goal when he related stock that same routine. Owner that's impacted assault. Or whatever it is this team does not go to Max Smart herself without more salt being all NBA player and really. Grabbing the game with both hands and had a sob actually pitched a.

On the agenda because it shows on IDC nine. Number line that Cleveland is Smart. Yeah I teased at the top of the hour Cleveland the Cleveland Browns. Even more so are Smart and gonna tell you why. I know we love to make the punch line that the Cleveland Browns are joke and I agree before hand they'd been a joke however I do think. One important fact that ever won mrs. Is that this is a completely new regime after the 2015 season Jimmy has on the owner of the Cleveland Browns former league is governor correct. Here or brother and endeavor there's is part of the hasn't been like. That side here and Tennessee he bought the team. He really has. The laws he made so's brother Jimmy made two big moves number one he promoted side she'd brown to the general manager. Anyway I hired a guy by the name of Paul. Paul BD Podesta for baseball fans was the assistant to Billy Beane. If you ever seen the movie money ball he is the character that Jonah Hill is loosely based on their. So Paul is an analytic Skype he's a Harvard a police economist both guys both saw she and pulled it Modesto or Horford. The guy that I sit in this chair currently is also a Harvard got so this is the reason why I think this regime should be looked at differently. These guys are Smart decision makers pulled it a dust help build those ace teams that were so successful that were the subject of money ball. And now he has started to put his prints on hand prints on the he Cleveland Browns in yesterday they made a move that I am all in all. The Cleveland Browns this year. They be adopted a method that I don't think is very common in football all day to doses emission as the baseball background. He took the approach of taking. Lot of baseball team's tank they ducked their roster they get rid of every single asset that they can. They got it so they can start from the ground up that's what Theo Epstein did but the cubs we saw the results. Also Billy Beane did but they Hayes obviously with a much more limited budget but he had massive amounts of success. The browns have taken this approach they started getting rid of every single asset they cleared roughly about a hundred in 1947. Million dollars of cash opera. They're for. The Cleveland Browns don't have any assets to trade. To get back draft picks and what not to build new roster however they do you have one asset that no one else that they have tons of cap space. So you don't have any assets to trade you know that you wanna keep building picks. They did what they did they take brought us our contract they have no intention of making Brock cost fathered their quarterback. But they take on that contract they get a second round pick for 2018 and return. And they have two options they can either take Brock Oslo. Package that with the pick. And try and get a pick either for this draft may be possibly move up if the into the first round to get their quarterback or. They're gonna get another second round pick in two when he eighteen currently right now the browns have six of the first 65 picks in the NFL draft. And this is why I think it's really really Smart. Yesterday Robert Woods signs with the LA rams Robert Woods is a very solid receiver unit but win. The best asset I mention of a receiver is his blocking ability. I'm not really big on that and more importantly I'm not big on giving a guy like that thirty million dollars. Conversely let's look at what the New York Giants did you were giants drafted sterling Shepperd in the second round. Sterling Shepperd is going to be a New York Giants for four years he's going to be extremely productive. Since Jerry says to the general manager who probably overpay for him and keep him but the point being is that. If you're the Cleveland Browns you can find a guy like sterling Shepperd. In the second round they can be extremely productive and your still in the middle of a rebuild is still in the middle of tanking. And for me this makes all the sense in the world because first and second round guys. Had a high success reign of being impact guys and when you look at what the browns did last year in the draft. They don't have any draft picks we go back to Cleveland Browns draft pick. Right in fact they went the other way they put a high premium on productivity at the college level. They that's that was there that saw home on track there's a certain thing to be said for productivity. It's the same reason why you know if you look at that press got that pass that was massively. Productive in college. Lo and behold he gets in the right sit right right fit right system. Massively productive for the cowboys so what the browns did yesterday I took note of because that was a varied not Cleveland Browns moved. Right and Smart too because Ian yeah the most cap space in the league Cleveland Browns but you're not getting any big time freeagent go to come to Cleveland so yes you got Houston they've got to get up this contract they know loss while it's not gonna work there we saw it come he didn't want a playoff game but he didn't really limited and I got a one up left and adding he could answer it. And so yeah you take on these big contracts to get draft picks with them. And that's Asia cap space and is Smart and. Further let's say maybe decide to hold onto that second round pick. There's also a legitimate chance obviously the Houston Texans are one of the rumored picks are rumored destination spots for Tony Roma. But there's also the possibility goes to Denver and then Houston left with either going to get Jay Cutler. Perhaps they bring back its magic that's magic had a Texans run maybe yeah he does a good chance. Considering a first place schedule which the Texans have to play. There's a legitimate chance that the Texans back second round draft pick could be a pretty good second round draft pick because it's not a guarantee that that's a team that's going to just. Make the playoffs again when ten games I think the writing is certainly had have made the mark in which they could become the team of the south. What if the colts rebound that it's not Gibbons said to me. It was a very very Smart move I like what they did and speaking of Tony Romo. Believe he's not coming up next. Number two new look. Tony romo's good guy. So Tony Romo yesterday on it was it. He on social media hilly because they don't have any area he released a video saying his good bye let's hear. 48 hour. Hours your yeah. I was then do. Okay. One thing that I will say is he's in the GM in this video he's gonna work out in I just have never thought of Bob Dylan as like the you know big time Jim. Motivate unrealistic not really pump up song however I believe that was time and they are really change yeah I was yeah placed you know for so I think that was a war I think that was more cinematic that was pop up. That was not its that was more cinematic inspirational if you will so and yet the video's not very cinematic and also I again note I'm gonna go on a limb and say that Tony probably doesn't have a fantastic director of photography. Pumping some iron. Once that's number three Kirk cousins signs. Kirk cousins signed his tender and wall may be I didn't think this is gonna make your first inclination would be. That. Means he's going to be he's gonna continue with the Redskins citing the franchise tender makes them much more easy to trade. And he as asked. Think about this for a minute. This is the Washington Redskins are as a as a franchise. Kirk cousins asked to be traded to the San Francisco 49. Yeah that's pretty telling and obviously there is a connection now London make it seem to come I even indirect. The detection is that Kyle Shanahan. Was Kirk cousins offensive coordinator he feels comfortable he wants he wants to make the move there. Also of note with the 49ers they sang Matt Barkley. As well late last night. Presumably to be a backup I don't think you're signing Matt Barkley appears starter but I could be wrong I have I've been wrong before he did have a couple of yeah a couple of decent outings for the bears are desperate. It's interesting to me because. If you work. If you're Washington I just don't understand like to leave major U major decision with Kirk cousins by continuing to franchise tag him. He said he's not your got even and to me what is the point of of just kind of meddling in this in this mediocrity you decide he's tiger guy. Sign into the tender trade him and move on and rebuild but that would also implied that the Redskins are competent. And this is gonna say I mean you look at what the teams are doing around them and they just lost their two. Well James Lee Crowder had a good year last year but he's their number one receiver right now they just lost DeSean Jackson and beard are sound. Meanwhile every other team Niemi Dallas as a good receiving corps. You look at what the giants did with signing Brandon Marshall and I got the Philadelphia Eagles game now Shawn Jeffrey and Torrey Smith. I just don't know what they're gonna look like offensively. The Redskins next year because your best receivers are you're too tight ends. So. I mean and in fairness to them that the patriots have kind of made that work that blue pro work site her sister and cousins is known for spreading the ball around he gets everybody involved which is. To his credit. I just man. Boy I feel forever on that is it as a diehard Redskins fan because I just feel like every Sunday sucks yeah I'm with him. Number of war. Vince young's big day so vets and huge day mate what what's it didn't he had trade mart may events great again I think it's young great bodily injury party make Vince Young gradient didn't you open our real estate company or something is well. But the big is that Vince Young is back. This young signed with Utley does this get Saskatchewan Rough Riders as of of the CF felt fur. People we all know that. Well the Summers is it's nice to have the warm weather you kind of feel a little better but we hit that wall and after the NBA finals we had that all are of no sports you know. Baseball still not it's tough to get it as a baseball fan myself I find myself watching baseball simply because it's on good news though for you out there. CFO four balls right in that sweet spot. So now you've got someone that's exciting to watch. I enjoy it I the bill's gonna say disclosure I've been known why Seattle for bald Jeffers spirit of full disclosure avenue and battled Siena head except. That's where it again boredom is is my mortal enemy so good this you now have something to watch in July I wish him the best. I see I'm I'm waiting for a comeback tour because one of my favorite things in all of the world is Vince Young spends money. Let me say something about him real quick as I know that it's you know we we gentiles and we general Vince Young a lot. One thing I'll say. You look around the NFL and some of these backup quarterbacks especially like the third string quarterbacks. And I just don't understand. Why Vince Young. Can't cracker roster in though I would just think that it team. Would be willing to take a flyer on the guy especially knowing that he really wants back in the league. I don't know there's really much baggage there anymore I mean I think the guy generally wants me back in the league. As look at some of these crappy backup quarterbacks in the NFL the EC every year meaning what he seems like you to the Houston Texans tried out on one of their quarterbacks get injured. And a day and a savage. I know savage I'm just say in. I think that the guy should be able to make an NFL roster I think a team should take a flyer on him mainly because. I like dance I was a fan when he was a tie in it was exciting he brought some hope it didn't pan out but I like Vince Young. I think it goes to show. Franchises in general it's the same thing of why no one ever really sign Tim Tebow added either backup franchises in general don't. As a backup quarterback it's best to be seen not heard. And the fact yet. I'm waiting on any losing team the most popular player is always the backup quarterback there's that however people often. Overlooked the fact that there's a reason why he's the backup quarterback but. It's understandable I think oftentimes what happens to Vince Young because he's had. No he has also says yes he's Edna and he's had success. He's exciting I think there's the the idea that we just don't wanna deal with that aspect of this that aspect of the distraction I'm not saying that Vince Young. Himself as the distractions the fact that his name is Vince young and we've seen and have some success he obviously had the illustrious college or they're to be the hiding for Vince Young I think that's alerts are. Because the situation you're gonna find contact Ernie can absolutely do whatever team he goes to if that starting quarterbacks not performing. You know we know the cap critics not a great quarterback and so again it's gonna come back to. You know he's the guy sitting on the bench that everyone knows and is clamoring for so yeah I think a second situation with numbers fly as is hawks tomorrow night. Some ice we have grizzlies tickets for your we have 24 packs to give away 24 packs to give away. In the spirit of giving the people what they want.
