Eat good food yeah. I probably yet probably called it fifty times before finally got through and guess what. I got myself some guard ripped it just did you did some media will be going to Garth Brooks it'll be fun and dad got a cheer up the mood. Well yeah your mood was not cheered up my lies. Why didn't get to I didn't get there you're sitting in the nose bleeds I got floor seats are right you know I'm gonna go ominous signal on and have a few Beers and discovers gonna warn listeners right now did this shows that we can April 12. It will sluggish and sometimes I got out there. Throw that out sometimes you get a realization of who is royalty and who isn't you're sitting in those leaves are out floor seats. I just think I. Mota set a release the power rankings this on this this welcome back to bite you at some point like Kanye West will have a concert Portland company get back jokes on you or even to a kind coming up at a backstage passes and Alex and go booze of Kim Kardashian afterwards and make fun of you. The listeners the NFL and illustrate as we shift gears from the for the trailblazers in the unfortunate Wesley Matthews news. And we we kind of talked about this yesterday were always surprises us. The lol with the low asking price for wide receivers veteran wide receivers in the NFL from Anquan Boldin lenses Super Bowl. Is straight for his sixth round pick you saw Percy harbor Ingle from Seattle to the jets and now once again you have a late round pick being traded for. One of the better wide receivers in the NFL that's brand MR regional trade of for a fifth round pick to. The New York Jets yeah I don't know if I would say he's one of the better receivers anymore daddy's he had 31 years old money more you start to get up there and it's by this move makes me wonder earning kind of leads me to the conclusions mat you member of that from office space the jump to conclusions mat. This is kind of what I did with his Brandon Marshall trade. I think I think New York is gonna draft Marcus Marianna this kind of convinced me of that. Helpers you aren't gonna be released because you bring in Brandon Marshall front yards down you don't wanna pay per C Hartman said now you got. Curly Decker Marshal those are pretty former weapons we know of their defense the side of the ball. Is just fine they were pretty decent defense of team. But when you add those guys you need a quarterback is geno Smith their guy he might be if they don't take Mario obviously getting -- the way his Tom Bowles has said that many years have we don't have a quarterback problem or DelHomme pitched well you say that and tell you miss out on the guy you want in the draft when he also say that it's a Marcus Mario is sitting there with six technically the jets and every projection that we've seen thus far is they have the New York taking the quarterback because that's where they think Marcus Mario is gonna fall he doesn't get taken by the box of the titans. Those other teams below them. Are probably not going to go quarterback that leaves the jets sit and radiate the sixth pick now maybe that turns into more compensation from the Eagles and genus missed your guide. But going getting a Brandon Marshall and being aggressive they haven't had 8000 yard receiver. Since side Jericho Cotchery. And I believe 2007. Should think about that. Sanchez has had a lot to do with this is a geno has had a lot to do it a real opportunity for them to open things up through the passing game but you need a quarterback because I don't know if people are really sold on geno Smith I'm not ready to officially count him out I am but they're sitting -- number six in markets Mari notice probably going to be I I just I've I'm jumping to the inclusion and I think we're gonna get Marcus Mario and that's intriguing part of this move is because he said we're talking before the show about his deal and. It if you're gonna go get a Brandon Marshall let the asking price is huge it's a fifth round pick five EU given in the fifth round pick. The vast majority of those guys don't really panned out to anything in the NFL you get a difference maker wide receiver position. But it did get me thinking because we've heard reports at a New York over the last couple weeks especially from troubles coming out of the com buying that they did they weren't really willing to take a quarterback that high in that they're one of the picks and a lot of people are looking at. For potentially Philadelphia to trade up to if Marcus Mario distill all aboard. That's the kind of range for Philly wants to jump up and get may be the New York Jets picked at number six if you're not gonna take Marcus Murray go to. I don't understand this move at all I really don't I know useless helps geno Snyder I know you still think there's room for G announcement to grow and emerge is gonna disagree on that we have for for quite some time your pessimist sum up. Has hit easy crackers disagrees that. You're talking about a wide receiver who has not been good with quarterbacks in the past me there's a reason he's on three different teams we know we had the off the field issues henin Jay Cutler got into a lot and Chicago. Handing a guy like this to geno Smith or even a Marcus Mario Oda. I just I don't I'm really necessarily understand where they're coming. Well look if you still believe at the jets do believe truly that geno Smith can cut it and that there in their offense assistant Jane Gailey those guys can get geno Smith turned around. In the move makes sense for that purpose because you wanna offer a more or more now he wasn't he wasn't impressive last year and I can't I can't defend them to that point. But sometimes it's all about fit. For five years we thought out Smith was a bomb one of the biggest busts in NFL history Aaron Rodgers is just laughed and Adam in Green Bay. And the needy Greg Roman and Jim Harbaugh and guess what it turns them around. He has a good run a year and a half with Sarah Cisco that turns into a big contract and now there's no doubt about Alex Smith. Not saying that's going to be geno Smith but at the franchise believes that with this coaching staff. In the move makes cents if they don't. It still makes sense because it puts them in a position to go try to get a markets Mario and in the draft again it's a big gamble to take a quarterback. Especially when you're looking at a top ten pick. But if Marcus Mario it is the system you wanna run and he fits that with everything that he has offering him more more weapons that's only gonna help your team. On this really is the big splash big at a new GM new head coach of as we've been mentioning this really is. There their first big splashes as a tandem in in in Percy Hartman as you mentioned a couple of minutes ago Sprague is is on his way out as soon as. As soon as Marshall passes his physical and he's cleared signed Percy Harvard's on his way out Elliot the freeagent. Well let from Philadelphia is it set there's three different scenarios here you're they're generally geno Smith you're gonna take markets Mario when he's there. Or you're going to accept the trade package that Philadelphia is going to give you it's hard for me to see Philadelphia maybe not including Apple's. If they wanna go get a mark is Mario and if they don't include equals and they probably LaMarcus to maybe sit for a year and have chipped kind of tutor him a little more in the NFL level but. I really do some believe that move -- Brandon -- kind of I am buying into the notion that the -- kind of wanna go to the quarterback that they wanna go get -- -- -- and to be intriguing -- ducks fans as one of the last places you wanna see him -- why do we feel that way because why do you say that because your son Mark Sanchez flame out if you're thinking of Rex -- want and I also think about the media culture that exists he's a quiet -- -- I didn't I just always agree with that notion -- -- gonna talk about that a week or two ago I just I don't buy into it when you win ball games in New York the media is your best friend and they will leave you alone Derek -- Seles -- -- it is -- I don't I don't how realistic is -- -- -- -- Mario has had a -- -- him and why -- right -- and I'm not yes and if that's a lot of expectations going to be put on him either way -- -- -- -- rookie quarterback who's done. That's true but when you do win ball games they leave you alone is mark is why they're really gonna be affected by the media and training dumb dumb stories well. Dane leaves. A dame leads marks Myers apartment at two A yen to eight bump spot gets me. Frank Sinatra being out its new. And back again. Angel leaving as a par you made this game iPad demons and Damian Miller. Well that's EU problem this is New York we're talking about here they're gonna print those command line I do know this I don't think you'll flip off the fans abroad was leaving his hotel room with. Is that a matter of getting UG announcement I did it's not from listeners is in a kick out after the shows that warming act somewhere flip flops or shorts today. I'm proud their problem and every minute and has made fun of me three days ago for doing that as you pull the plug too soon. No I didn't it was beautiful hills I can get away with it is 'cause there's a seven degrees seventy degree day on the forecast is it today now this weekend so I'm just get ready you're celebrating are getting prepared is this new year limit television they see it coming up next another wideout it's the open market in a troubled defensive lineman restructures. His deal at a professional tees more fun size and of those stories next to enter its brakes are an awful Alex on tending of him. Yeah. Just said he inbox just came in with a double edged up tickets you know we didn't have now this isn't you know he told me amended 300 and I'm not happy about it hey spray. The Mota set a power rankings were correct in giving you floor seats in making Dirksen the nosed little bit of what really stunned about that whole process with your two weeks. Your tweet got beat. What do you mean does not only eat kind of like has Weaver it. We were caught hold not uphold we couldn't get through to get these Garth Brooke tickets for like twenty minutes that's it they're dialing dialing dialing I get through first fist pump in. I'm time to kind of started it I did I start taunting you could you kept dialing. It'd island. Dialogue dialogue and dialogue and and I get through and I made the mistake. Of trying to request tickets for the first shell which was done because they added like three or four I just thought a total of five shows now all of them are sold out. So I cut through the whole process this break gets through. And I say hey I got three analyses CC get overseas and then you set out a tweet it basically set out on you know Garth Brooks says yeah. Having an impasse on exact. But I got cold and navy at. I don't worry I'll be up there a vibe inoculated us this is I live out Daniels this is kinda your problem UN in this is and I noticed any problems of listeners didn't know that woe is me Friday. Durham was desperately trying to purchase Garth Brooks tickets which. Which they just look it was impossible to get on like the phone kept it was billed as diehard Garth Brooks fan so dirt continuing to try to dig Garth Brooke too easy finally gets through. And he chooses like the first show like the one of the two shows that we knew about the new release of the other shows right wasn't spoken out until last second. So I thought in my head why what I try to do was show that every else knows about it in the later show and a go to a later show instead enjoy it and guess what you bastard get floor seats that. You you you shut after I know my might dislike bowling that was weird animals apologies cut. The bottom of the hour we get back in this Wesley Matthews unfortunate news in red city hi how do you go about replacing him can you replace him and how to expecting expectations changed. For this season though we just got done talking about a wide receiver in the NFL there was another one. That's not gonna hit the open market this this surprised me a little bit it really did. The Indianapolis Colts came out today announced that they are parting ways and actor resigning. Reggie Wayne fourteen seasons with the Indianapolis Colts. He went through the good years bad years won a Super Bowl Peyton Manning was part of the engine locked in a resurgence with that organization. He ends as the franchise leader in regular season games played wins rank second in receptions and receiving yards receiving touchdowns Heidi our games. In consecutive games at the reception Reggie Wayne could be freed on its. Kind of ironic because he's got that tramp stamp tattoo on his lower back that his loyalty to so it's like it kind of makes you wonder like how does that work. Everything just kind of pans out was right guys all about loyalty any chance they with a franchise's all career you know this is assists. It's always it's always weird to see a guy at the end of their career playing for a different team of Eagles on it in a good sign by somebody. This is an addition I would look at why you feel about this approach Seattle. On the cheap he's gonna wanna play for winter I know anyone really getting give you must know no but there's no wide receivers out there that are gonna give it time when the niners just signed Jerome Simpson right. So they go they clearly work too excited about the idea Reggie Wayne being out on the open market now antsy out I mean look I'm all try to get it kerik to China dangle something for a while at Seattle might be looking at the wide receiver position but I think they're all simulating it event's impact we German lane we we talked to feel gates and a yesterday and I think they wanna upgrade from Vatican approval for automatic cash of football. Well to be fair he cotton for recoup it now it's. So any kind of touchdown aide did let's shift gears to have tended to the Seahawks rival Mattis is ever Cisco 49ers this news actually really did catch me up card. We all know the struggles at all and Smith has been through in his career ups and downs. All the suspensions I think he's played eighteen of a possible 32 regular season games the last two years served what a nine game suspension wanna say is start last season. He has completely restructure his deal is coming years is the last year of his contract 2015. Is set to make nine point seven something million dollars. All of that which was gonna be guarantee as soon as innocent as he NFL season started he was guaranteed to make nine point seven million dollars. But he decided to go the opposite route restructure his deal and now it's all based on bonuses in performance. His agent came out the quotas agents and was he's basically saying. I'm willing to bet on myself that I want not to anything stupid. Which is just a phenomenal quote. He got kind of respect a guy like is that what you mean he's made a lot of guaranteed money in his career so far he's saying Ellen let me work for the 9 point 7:9 am and earn next he will he's he's turning. And around he's getting rid of the bonehead part of himself and saying you know what I'm not gonna get in trouble I'm not going to be. Dealing with stuff off the view because that's been a problem we don't we know who he is a football player we army questions about that it's. Are you going to be able to stay out of trouble stay out of the limelight and just play football. I think it's fantastic. That he's made his decision to say you know I'm destruction my deal based on what I can do on the field. Because that's a real grown up move for it has simply what I mean especially somebody's been stealing money for that organization well I'm not I'm I'm I'm not saying that people like him into trouble are grownups does. You can learn from and I would that ultimately you have to be OK with him keeping his contract doping when you wanna structuring it. That is him and his agents way of saying you know what will prove it because I am a free agent after this year if I can go out and get 20/20 two sacks. I'm gonna get paid in you stay out of room out of out of trouble and nobody's talking about you he's going to get paid because people will be that move and the view is production and say. Look at all the Smith he's turning his life around and it's really no surprise either because. The Sam is the 49ers as a reading an article on them because there was an analytics conversation once Charles Barkley started talking about it. NBA writers. NFL writers are all time analytics the 49ers are one of the I think eleven teams in the league. That really love using analytics they believe and they haven't analytics team. They use their analytic skies in the contracts department to if you look Colin tapper knicks contract. There is a lot of money guaranteed but a lot of incentives there where he has to be. The best quarterback hacked in the NFC's gotta take his team the NFC championship when a Super Bowl there's a lot of different ways he has to earn. The though the entire contract and they've actually been applauded for that because they user analytics in the contract department which helps them save money. And sepsis sets up unique bonuses for players who go out there and perform. As is aging continued the thought behind it is that all didn't realize he has been his own worst enemies come along way since he was suspended. Ultimately his goal my goal on the team's goals for him to sign it long term contract with the 49ers in if he comes out he performs this season. If the 49ers you gotta make dabbled in this is a defense of group where we talked yesterday they add Darnell Dockett on the defense line. Justin Smith still a question mark if the cowboys get a return form overseas I think they're gonna get it sounds like science appointing him wanting to give it one more star get out of the facility every day ragged and in this is unique with we talked a lot about this defense last year the injuries they had at the linebacker position. Yeah at Dalton Smith I think people forget that all the Smith was suspended for the first nine games this season if he's healthy he's contributing back to Walton Smith of say 2013. Level. This defense can be as good as we've seen. One before the show we had mentioned that we were trying to get Garth Brooks tickets and I didn't know where we are standing in the call line and dirt mom let us know. The past and you're not helping. That was during his mom his mom calls and Jimmy I don't know why but she does. They dirt my mother in law as an extra seat to Garth Brooks seventh seventh row floor she Siegel and and you love moms. When the reputation that got up next honestly bad guy who has done for the year Q&A blazers replaced him the first Jolie. Sports center. Are. Welcome back dinner break served up by about allow links to. We do have a little bit of breaking news and via now do do do do do. As more details for us. Starting to rebirth. Marshawn Lynch. Has restated agreement. With the Seattle Seahawks. Wow. Did TE. Let's go lives Peter out in Seattle Peter 1080 the fan what did you tell us about march on links well like Italians. Marchand got off the plane they have agreed on a new deal. The terms of not banned the publicly revealed back to you. That's a pretty good that's like is that a Seattle accent. Yeah that was my. Nirvana fan accents and that it all I do like that it ended it dish after a narc. But video is now and it's spotted on a plane to CEO. This is that we are so much has decided to return to the NFL. And he and Seattle have reached agreement on a new deal her source and I know you look at a plane and spot somebody in it. These are so small the windows a tiny these horses by getting on a plane was spotted. On a Plano somebody said spotted on a plane with somebody sit next to him on the plane take pictures seven senate and show after it resell the dish after dish after doing his life which I'm just probably connected so well pilots. That's it that's actually it's a pilot like sends him a picture of Mario on our plane shifty bro marsh on on my I. I do like is we got ESPN on in in the studio right now they're playing NFL live and the headline is he's gonna return to sea to the Seahawks and he did haven't had a year left on his contract yes there was the rumors earlier in the offseason that maybe he was gonna look to retire and he got everybody is gonna give pay we have no not no terms and in. About how much she's going to be making. But I'm reports surfaced a couple of weeks ago that this thing could be in the neighborhood of ten million dollars again we don't know yet this is just the edges of a basic announcements he is returning to Seattle next year. They have restructured a new contract whose jealousy oxen Marshawn Lynch. This is big news for them now and I said it for a long time going back to last year even going into last season were people I said. And let him walk you hold now not a not a seahawk fans but there was a small there were people though that we're like they'll hemlock is a jerk we don't medium that there was a choppy sea hawks fans that were saying let him go we got guys that. And replacing Christian Michael turbine those guys will be fine. We don't need him we got Russell Wilson. And I think he once again showed how important he is of that team and I and I said as if you lose Marshawn Lynch 'cause with a reports came out who's thinking about retiring. I said that's it there's no way it's it's hard enough to make it to three straight Super Bowls and make it to that point again for a third year and wrote them but without Marshawn Lynch they would stand a chance you get them now you pay him which is just Smart because of what he's done that organs Floyd is but it's also really not. Surprising that this news comes across the wire I mean the rumors of Marshawn Lynch retiring s.'s I thought that was utter BS it's. It's a way for him to spin it for thirty organization in the organization to spend it to his agent. We want more money he needs more money it's no surprise that where the team was last year. Russell Wilson gets all the praise for them and I think Seahawks fans and people in the northwest they understand it's Marshawn Lynch you can kind of carry this team. But nationally it's it's Russell Wilson it's the face it's. He asked me about my dreams no Russell let's ask you to hand the ball off to Marshawn Lynch because he's average in about four point five yards per carry which they showed it on the one yard line yet the a lot of people know that by now it's not surprising Seattle have to pay him eat these kind of does he's deserved what he's done in Seattle of starting the first run recreated the earthquake the beast mode run against the New Orleans Saints we sought beast mode too that sect run against the cardinals and what he was able to do. A lot of people what questions about immense. In column turbine in named Kristen Michael they're gonna be okay. No Marshawn Lynch is a rare breed he led the league in yards after contact. You need that guy even if it's a year to left in his prime. You're gonna need him next year so really isn't that surprising that Seattle finally kind of came to terms of Marshawn Lynch and we don't know the numbers now. But I just I have a hard time believing Marchand agreeing to that deal unless he got more money. I 'cause you correct me if I'm wrong I believe he was scheduled to make seven million dollars next c.s I believe that is school somewhere in that ballpark so you're you're talking he's not gonna restructured deal in my opinion anything less than nine so I've at at least nine if not higher than that. We we were just talking about the shop McCoy recently his cap it was the second highest terms running backs the NFL eleven point something and Adrian Peterson is the highest at twelve points on the million dollars in with the web Marshawn Lynch has played I think he deserves that amount money. It just brings into question now it and we talked about this for Seattle last season we've had multiple NFL experts come on. Kind of break down a way to salary cap works we or you know they had to pay guys last sees in the knees general Thomas signed Richard Sherman. But the contract it's still working on and they still haven't gotten done is Russell Wilson. How much guaranteed monies don't try to Bobby way and don't forget body Wagner is also that there's a lot of money that has to go around and and I remember reading a report a couple of weeks back about the Russell Wilson deals saying. The destruction that thinks there's not a whole lot of guarantee money the first two years or or of the union not as big an attack. Hit in the first two years so they can afford things like this with Marshawn Lynch who we don't know that for certain yet that and we don't know what he's gonna want how much money's gonna want how long it's gonna be how much guaranteed money's going to be an act contract. But I think it's safe to say I I would hope most seahawk fans would agree with this you should be okay pay Marshawn Lynch 101112 million dollars because he really has been heartbeat of that. T pain in the next two years I have a hard time believing guy that plays the way that he does has three years left being dominant in being able to go yet twelve to thirteen hundred yards a season. But in the next two years he is worth whatever the Seahawks just agreed to pay and if it's ten in its eleven if it's twelve. He's worth it yet that Seattle has a dominant defense we all know that. We know Russell Wilson is a an incredibly controlled guy who doesn't turn the ball over and he's he's showing more more. How he's he's kind of wrapped around in and understands that playbook front to back. But when it comes down to it you need Marshawn Lynch. Everybody points to you know David Bostick to the Green Bay Packers are what they did on an interception return with a meal litany of C championship game. Who was the guy that was kind of get in the dump passes and taken him twenty yards of the guy with a 25 yard run to take the lead late night game. Was Marshawn Lynch he is a unique guy he is one of the peace probably the most unique running back in the league in the sense of he didn't take the hits and he's going to lead league in rushing after contact I like Dieter Peter is there any concern for for you though with that. In terms of adding a long term and short like a sharp drop off the next two years he's what he's going to be turning 29 select sharp drop off we would've thought either way even if he wouldn't have had contact that way. We still would have expected it because of what we've been told and what kind of what's history shows as was running backs at the age of thirty so. I mean yeah I expect to drop off Eddie George played the same way it's gonna happen when he has had a guy in Seattle to a John out and it it was just snap of the finger one year to the next team it's like a shell in the senate he's not even a guy that like contact you know be deep slide down he'd avoided. It happens to everybody but when you play that style it's going to happen it's not a matter of of if it's a matter of win. He is worth the next two years and maybe hopefully doesn't happen nature I love watching the guy play I really do these on line but I think in the next two years you for sure can count on him being able to be consistent in give you what he's giving the last couple seasons. And he is going to be worth that kind of going he really is. If you just joining us Marshawn Lynch and the Seattle Seahawks have agreed to a new contract still no words on exactly how much money that will be but as soon as we find out. Will pass along I think it's safe to say that it'll be easier for him to pay the fines or grab his crotch and not talking to the media do you think there's a certain amount I make the NFL can get away with his teams need a way with this. Where they say these certain amount of your contract. But then they take X amount and included decide news agencies don't pay tossed. This'll cover all fines even when we get to this I. I'd I'd negotiate that in if I was Marcia I would do every time I did find you know to pay it unless I can think of another great catch phrase that I wanna trademark and yeah that's very true is a couple stats Fareed just to show how important Marshawn Lynch has been at Seattle Seahawks. Since joining that organization in week six of 2010. No player in the NFL has more rushing touchdowns and lynch 54. And last season he established a career high of seventeen all purpose touchdowns and his four point 66 yards per carry average was the second best of his. He is and he is one of the guys for people who are not a 1000% sold on Russell Wilson being able to carry a team he is one of the two reasons why it's you look at that with that defense is done. And then let cal Dominic Marshawn Lynch has been especially on big runs for that team. It's and it's a whole other ballgame for somebody like Russell Wilson if you don't have a Marshawn Lynch back. Boy Angus is beautiful for the development of Russell Wilson to everybody needs help and we talk about this from Marcus Mario and it would seek it get to work with James Wentz and what pieces will he have early in his career there's no doubt there's a developmental process there are really the only guy we see coming right Elaine played in the leak leak leak level without any help is Angela Russell Wilson. Had a lot of success his rookie season but. Because of the defense in the run game what this does is at least bison another two years to get to that point. And I think we see a lot of growth from Russell Wilson early in his career he obviously already has a Super Bowl ring he's been to two Super Bowls in his first three years. The buying him two more years to grow as a quarterback with the help that run game. It's absolutely huge for I completely agree with him so marsh salads in the Seattle Seahawks agreeing to a new deal as soon as we find out exactly what the terms are how much money he will be making. We will pass that along but now we got to get back to what we were gonna talk about this past segment and that is the unfortunate news here rip city Wesley Matthews ruptured QVC is done for the season. Yeah the blazers replace him in and out of your expectations changed without the Iron Man in the lineup we'll discuss next enter Sprague served about buffalo bombings on 1080 the fan. Maybe a beautiful day in Portland son's activities seventy degrees this weekend the blazers have won five games on the road. Crazy to think about what this team would be doing if they had blown a thirteen point lead against Memphis to. He'd be looking at six in a row with winds over the grizzlies or spurs and thunder. Him must be the clippers and maps at Indy and all but thirteen particular bluntly I love watching you think there and it's a minute wait a minute. Oh no I've got one of those. And but it's kind a bragging. Wouldn't call it a green car. But unfortunately the news is not a a good win over a playoff team in Dallas at home the news is not Nicholas Batum looking good once again. Damian Miller busting out his shooting slump in the third quarter. The news unfortunately is Wesley Matthews eat the Iron Man is basketball team is starting shooting guard or however many years in a row now is done for the rest of the season he ruptured his que les. I was at the game last night erect the game as well Spragan it. It's it's it's just tough you hiding blazer fans we've been through this a number of times injuries and especially a pivotal players late in the season Brandon Roy eight comes to mine remember when he had to come back and I'm sure there's surgery play against Phoenix. It just happened into this time and time again and and there's no way to you can go about trying to replace the heart soul does basketball team atlas map why does know like from where I was sitting. When he went down you do have like one or two people that we're like we don't like Toby you Rhode Colby tore his Achilles it was kind of the same thing as like a freak accident he was really cold leaves grimacing. But Daniels got that maybe he slept and he just kind of if they show the replay one time they can zoom in. But they showed any kind of like he rolled his ankle a little bit yeah it was really hard from from my perspective than just watching it come as a fan last night. To see like his whole laid kind of vibrate when you watch it on sports center when I got home at least. They showed it in slow Mo and you could seize calf muscle in his holy to vibrate you kind of are okay. But even if you speculate you don't know like you just dam and understanding and you sit out game maybe he'll be back to be okay he probably not gonna come back tonight. And in the blazers went on that was in the third quarter we got hurt they went on that third quarter in the fourth quarter and they just dominated Dallas was a lot of fun to watch. Yet some guy free can hit a half court shot at the end of the third quarter to get out Christa Hester he won a brand new tech toy yellow would from what was in the Gresham Toyota bangers and I have a Toyota Avalon Prius hybrid Avalon where the hell it was. Place went crazy is a good time. And then you got that news which that is a tough injury to come back from I know we've seen a couple of guys come back you know as of late. I don't kid yourself that is a tough one to rehab and we just watched the interview with Kobe Bryant a mod were shot. And Ahmad Rashad said Leon Hall how hard was that for you. And Kobe's it like there were times I just wanted to quit and you want Kobe Bryant that's a guy that we know he wants to be out there he'll do anything he can. Kobe Bryant had a couple points where he wanted to do is packing an insect can do this anymore it's tough. I adding Wes is a lot of animal same mold as Colby with the energy and a love for the game the way he plays it but this is not gonna be as simple injury to rebound from. No on an if you wanna know the specifics of that stay tuned to it's a prime time this afternoon I was talking at Nacional always on and for opt to only drop out to them and they have doctor from China near rob I mean I really hope I didn't miss pronounce that name but he co authored a study. That literally focused on NBA players. Rupturing their Q that's Ali B did a study on how long it takes them to come back what we what to expect the rest of their careers. So he's gonna joined ST Suk and 330 so meiji catch that. If your blazer fan and it was an emotional vibe in the locker last night I was there. Trying to fight with an in the media scrum to get some audio usually after a win like that it's pretty. Pretty excited crowd lot of smiles lot of joking gold back and forth. Because they're ready it was a good win for them minutes five in a row at the timberwolves this weekend should be six and rolled the ball start to roll the right direction for this team that. Lot of long faces and understandably so we got a chance Wesley did show up and he did talk to the media in theory is is kind of his initial reaction to the injury. There's there's. This belief. Soon apparent. I don't know ways I don't feel. Like killing sometimes. I can't really want to hear from my team has. Because I never crosses Posey did you know you when he came out I came on ice storms to. I knew it. He I he. I think you set it where you read a quote from him earlier in the show Sprague. About how we kind of woke up this morning him tears are kind of agonize I I got that right here so. Obviously you talked to on all all the media talked him last night and I thought he literally looked like he was decried last. When has talking to reporters in. Understandably so when he released a statement this morning on his on Twitter and instrument is is pretty much what is set I would be lying if I did not admit to having tears fall down my face this morning. Because I was hoping to just be waking up from a bad dream. I'm sorry this response took this long but none of it felt real and to be honest it still doesn't. My season is over and my will my heart my faith in my strength will now be tested which is a challenge I welcome though my season is no. It's clearly emotional and it's enough he continued on last night he talked about just kind of that the randomness of that and in Sallie Mae exec at a thousand times. You know make their same occurred. Hundreds of thousands times in my life. No I felt initial. And I think you know your country has its own new plan would actually you know you've heard. Just listen kitchen. Knows pretty. Close friend has some factor. You know I hear Sharon stone's thank senator Ronald an autograph you actually this. He says don't know. Directory knew it yes I mean that's one of those weird injuries where. UC NEC a lot the NBA the NFL that's. That's an injury that it it used to be so weird like where people would describe the feeling eat decently I thought somebody kicked meanie to bind and I forgot who we talked into wrestling we just talked about this where somebody was describing how they toward their que les. In the middle like a pick up basketball game somewhere and they they thought they'd hit like the bleachers. Silly turned around they just fell in that weird kind of position. And there was nothing there and the like on my gash I just went work happened yet and that's how you do that like because happens so often. Now old people rafts players you can kind of see the way it happens and even mentioned I watched it on sports and when I got home from the game. You can kind of watch how the body reacts and the way that happens and how much pain the guy goes it is in when it happens indeed do you get a sense on now probably que les. Yeah how does this change your expectations blazer fans I'm curious to hear from you guys today 55305. It'd be retired attacks on if you wanna give us column last hour you can file a three to five votes and eighty. It's kind of what's the mood what's the mood in the city. I will save as tough as this is and and Wesley Matthews is is the heartbeat of his team LaMarcus Aldridge use that terminology last night he can't replace. They got it is hard sold team but I will say just in terms of production. When you look at clogging another guy into the starting lineup I'm very confident that Aaron Afflalo can fill those shoes I really am I think you look at the numbers across the board. They're pretty compare arable between the two of them maybe not as good of an outside shooter because it'll last three point contest led the NBA for a large chunk of this season. In May three point field bulls. I do think your swallows absolutely capable starting shooting guard in the NBA the question then becomes is. Is anybody gonna be able to fill those shoes there Afflalo had coming off the bench and that's the lord if are well how incredible. Timing is that by you'll say where. And so he did what he couldn't he made the move he got to look at aired a follow any Alonzo Gee. It's fantastic but it's crazy the timing because follow unless our soul. They're mere images of each other in the sense of the way they play they're they are the style I think their third and fourth right now and guards that post up and get a percentage of their points they love to go down low and take their guys down low and kind of beat him up we sell from a flaw last night either talent trades are really similar defensively there's really I don't think there's a falloff between the two. And follows already it's a big threes or has built PC game last week and a nose average was around fifteen points when he was the starter for the nuggets that's obviously dipped a little bit. I kind of look did I look at the air follow move. And I know it seems like it's obvious that he's going to start now I would put a majority of my money on that debt and say yeah he's gonna fill that void disease used to in Terry Stotts knows he needs a vet. But it also there's a part there's a slice and that would not be surprised if Stotts thinks of a different rotation in the starting line up. It says I'm still gonna bring Aaron Afflalo off the bench because I still want that production they're now he's gonna blame majority of the minutes. Even if he starts or are comes off the bench but. Keeping things the same we did see when LA went down and freely went down we saw with came. And I know came in is in a lot a lot older there a follow in terms of where he's had his career. But that Katherine came off a little did any struggled and now he's kind of starting to get back that rhythm and consistency of being a bench guy. Maybe you put CJ McCollum in the starting lineup and players on the two front. For five minutes to see so that's it would NIC Batum went down Norman nick bitumen down early in his season missed a couple of long games Allen Crabbe field and in the start and Joseph Freeman who was all of us at 1230 today he said it's not a given rotations are not given there's 22 games left I can't project playoff rotations. Because we don't even know the rotations now it hasn't been consistent. Meyers Leonard barely played last night Joseph freely barely played at all last night in garbage time it's just I yeah you can never you never know what to expect with Terry Stotts and I know it feels like given their fall's gonna fill that void. I'd be willing to bet he is but it is not a given with the way Terry Stotts thinks it's completely different. When you just mentioned we had Joseph Freeman on earlier in the show from the Oregonian if you miss that interview we will tweeting out following the show our Twitter pages actors regulars a follow. We'll fly you back will also bring some of that back -- a lot of good things to say is cover this team for a long time and he knows it inside and out so. Well bring some audio from that back double your text her before we go to break up massively bombed that this may be was our year but we're absolutely not winning a championship without Wesley Matthews. Another text reads really tough loss honestly haven't thought about the season hoping heals enough to come back next year. Open team helps him keep his hopes up so keep your thoughts coming into Bimantoro attacks 955. 305 or read some your tax take some calls in the final hour. We did get the news on exactly how much Marshawn Lynch will be making next season how much of it is guaranteed we got that Syracuse under sanctions loaded our Cummins we only got one hour laughter in the we keep your dirt Sprague served up an awful lot of things on 1080.
