Automatic TRANSCRIPT

A great state. Jessie David Fox. I think the two biggest things you get out of the combine is the medical. You WanNa get the medical information you WANNA get true measurements on the players and you WanNa get the medical information. You want to see if they're healthy with their physical state is as you go into draft in those players. You got to ensure that they're healthy and you gotta get your medical people looking at them so I think medical is essential and I think you want to. I think the psychological evaluation is important as well. I think a lot of football stuff. You can glean from film but You WanNa Kinda see what type of person or individual that you're going to be including into your building into your family because you don't want to inject the wrong type of personality types into your family it could ruin the whole thing and you WanNa Identify. Highly Competitive People. You want to identify people that WANNA play football. Who loved the game so I think the interview process is very important as well as the medical a lot of the football stuff you can get from film. I think what was the guy named Mike? Moolah was that was that the combine wonder from the Eagles years ago. I think he played for Boston College. I think by numbers were outstanding and he was a bust. I think the mistake teams place. They make they place too much value on the workout. You know look at the film get a medical get the true measurements of a guy and try to assess a guys. Fbi in his competitive nature if the guy loves the game if he's willing to compete and he wants to put his all into the game. I think if you do those things. The combine is really valuable to me. The steelers have both ends of the spectrum here and it both cases they use combine results to really boost players up there board but debris debris combine freak because he isn't athletic freak for his size his speed strength agility. It's clear image right there for you. He's he was Roz. I'll get out coming out of Kentucky. Didn't even have a position. Coach steeler said. Look at that. We're GONNA take him and they didn't want me around but debris going to Atlanta. That's why he wore a red suit and everything when he dropped a Pittsburgh shoot Take him then yeah. Tj What the other end of the spectrum. A guy that didn't have a lot of experience in college playing as a pass rusher. A lot of people said His combat results. He's just a combine hero kind of the same effect as a player. You mentioned from Philadelphia. Pittsburgh says I love this kid athleticism. He's a what he's got the pedigree that something. The steelers have put some stock in the past three or four years in terms of like Edmonds. people that have families that have played in the NFL in N. T. J. Watt explodes period from the moment. He stepped on the football field. Even as a rookie. He was a difference maker. Whether interceptions pass defenses getting to the quarterback obviously last year having thirteen and a half sacks. I can see both ends of it. I can see putting too much stock into the physical attribute Z. See in the in the underwear Olympics and I can also see the fact that sometimes they need to have that chance to prove themselves in a one on one setting it. It's a fine line is a very fine line of these. Guiding departments have to walk in regards. To how much stock do you put into it? But I agree with you. The medical stuff the interviews that they go through some of the questions that they asked these players someone should be out some someone should be taken to task for that Have you heard some of the stuff that these guys get asked? Questions are some of the questions that The guy from Miami as Dez Bryant in I was surprised Dez Bryant. Didn't kill the guy the what they're gonNa do it so angry. You hit a guy you're done you're done you're black ball done. We know how the works. Yeah I mean that was some of those questions. Where like wow like? I'm attuned. You up in the hallway. Let me get you in the bathroom. Stall is is on it. This isn't Wunderlich stuff. This is the inappropriate personal questions. You're thinking wait what you asked me what I understand. You want to see my response. Maybe you want to see how I handle myself in certain situations. But you don't have to go there in if you don't know what we're talking about Google. It was really. I think the guy got in trouble though. I think the Guy Miami ended up getting in trouble by the League for asking those questions because I think those questions that Dez Bryant was completely. He's he he he. Yeah yeah so I'd say you know this is. You're talking about tangible stuff in regards to wade strength speed agility but at the same time like you said. I'm not putting more stock in the COM on an game. Film Rennell writes. Sometimes you see that happen. You see people the again. Amer the Combine and Oh my Gosh. He bench for us this much okay. If he bench pressed that much. Why does he get pancakes? Every five plays when you watch game film you know. Just I think film is more important. I know you agree with me. You know wedding I would do. I would I would try to mentally overload guy with a ton of information just to see how much they could retain sort of like the blackboard test. When they give quarterbacks so I just WANNA see under pressure how much information that they could actually retain regurgitate because that's a critical skill in the NFL. You have so much limited time. You're such limited time to actually mentally process everything that you have to do in terms of the game plan. That's why there's always that given tugging. Nfl Love should we make it simple? So guys can play fast or should we make it complex because of the adage in the national football league. If you're thinking your stinking so you know it so I I would put guys under mental tests to see if they could you know just to see how much they could retain and I try to identify what type of learners they are. They visual Are you the Classic Textbook Learner or your memorization guy? Has that that type of stuff that I want to know because I want to identify. What is the best way for you to retain information? Actually I think what you take away anything from. This conversation we're having is that it is important. The combine is important but the most of the stuff that's important according to myself and Lance is not being shown on television. No you know the stuff. You're watching on television is it's fun to watch TV. Yes I love watching guys run the forty because I think it's it's it's their their athletic freaks watch. These guys are like holy cow guys flying but at the same time. How often do you see a defensive? Lineman runs straight line for forty yards of a ballgame than ever. Because they're taking off kickoffs. So that's that's the only run forty yards straight. Yeah so all right now. Let's get to what's really important about the combine and that is that head coaches amp well for most teams in general managers. Stand behind a podium and they answer questions from the media now Mike. Tomlin is one of believed to the other coach up north. That does not meet the media during the combine. Everyone else You here you're hearing quotes from all the coaches talking about their teams and their scouting department's in not Mike Tomlin. But you did hear from Kevin. Colbert Kevin Colbert on Tuesday. Went to the podium answered questions in what was the very first question lands. I believe I called on Sunday. What was the first question about been rothlisberger in need? Then he was. The first question wasn't about a draft pick. It wasn't about a prospect it was about Ben Rothlisberger return and he. He had to chuckle to himself. I if I were Kevin Colbert I would. I would laugh. Olivia Guel this Pittsburgh. You know this is this. Is it Ben Rothlisberger? He kept on saying you know he put out that video and unlike idiot. You all put out that video. The steelers put out that video. That wasn't Ben Roth. As but he'd come on. It's all orchestrated but anyways. He made a a quote that I wanted to ask you about and a lot of people question this I could see his reasoning behind it but it was basically after a year off essentially a year off from the wear and tear your body even though he had a surgically repaired throwing elbow. We might see a better Ben Rothlisberger in twenty twenty like see. This is why we've been doing this show for so long. We picked up on the same bat. Say the same things. So what are your thoughts and you heard him say that? Are You thinking boy? This guy is blowing some smoke or anything. Maybe he's right. You know what I give him my personality you know. We do the homer the hater show on Sundays. I've learned to under promise right in so you could be surprised by what it is. It tells me that. They know a lot. Will they obviously know a lot more than we do? Yeah but they're they're they're something. I don't know officials the right word for him to come out in use that term. They know something that we don't know like they're really confident. They that hey might be in the barn already in keeping with the B teams that hey might be in a bar. He might really be right already. Think Ben's just ribbon passes right now he's just letting it loose just rippin Bassett. I don't think he's letting it loose but I don't think there was any way that Colbert did not know that he was going to throw a football because when we first when he kind of intimated that I was like. Now they know for sure been is ripping football but I think ben is probably a lot further along than than what's being reported. That's why he comes out that confidently in. It's not just the words that he said if you guys watch the video of the interview. Oh he felt good about it. Like it's like it's like when you know you're getting a bunch of money that's going to be cast in your account the next day and you kind of had a different walk that little swag like yes. I got some money coming in. It is coming tomorrow and I know it. That's kind of how he felt he'd like look. I've deposited a big check. And guess what our guy is going to be back very so in man you look at the timing of everything you look at the timing of the throw as we can call it now. This offseason Ferraro. Because he didn't he didn't throw him anymore. Just one singular the throw it all comes out right before the combine Yogi said. They know more than we do. That's obvious no one's debating that they know that Ben's probably a lot yet all these is when you get there Friday paycheck. That's right Allie. Coming up two days so you look at it and say we're going to the combine. Were looking for. We're looking for weapons now. We're looking for weapons because seven's going back. We need weapons. We need to get another receiver out there. We need to get a tight end. We need to get off. Vonda keep seven healthy and upright that changes. Everything is general manager. I gotTa feel like that like you said. You're almost playing with house money at this point. You're like Yep we got our Guy Back..
