He links and everyone's life and war things thanks Isaac dropping Jason's a candidate can't show. And ninety do my job the best in sports coverage. This is prime time revising consumed on 1080. Welcome to primetime today. Must be a Thursday must be a Thursday. Voice is still out on my cash and so as Mike and I again today Michael pole here the final show of our three. Attempts at filling in for residents who don't prime time like you say attempt we are trying there is actual effort going on his studio I I say attempt to nod and a bad way about us just anyway that it's very hard to field issues. Subsidize a drop in distance and I would agree with that I'm also I think it's fair to say around Portland maybe lack of effort may be something going around these days and we are trying to catch that cold well it is that is true it is the holiday seasons people tend to be a little more relaxed about work or there are you on vacation. Already checked out of the effort level is low for reason and you don't feel local sports team has decided to follow suit except it's been. Ought to know since. November and had been a lacking of effort and it's so funny it's like. Breaking news this is what we think those limos. Come been around for while I don't know I think that it has been happening to. Oh man oh man oh man you're talking and go for. I guess I wanna bring this up and I believe the first segment is appropriate for this. And it's a public Christmas spirit in a little bit that kind of what is correct conduct if you will compete. So this did not have holiday PC broke you know quality PC broke. This did not happen to me. So I'm not trying to be PC principle here but. This happened to my life today she sent me a snap. So on I didn't save it's I can't look at it again you know a snapshot you can actually I don't know how snapped at how to well goes up they're not September you can't save Agassi camp but I didn't say it. She sent me a picture of what her white elephant gift was today so they're white elephant was today at her at her company. And she got. The rotting banana. That had a rubber band on the back and it was like marker to Ian like colors. In in the box it was a paper that had written on it new released. Now for those in lamentable moment my wife works in a design agencies so I think it was a joke about here's a new release a new shoe or something like that. In malice her white elephant gift was not a gift it was a rotting banana that was sitting in a box for days that was colored. It was a joke about a new release so. In it was a terrible joke and so she. Picked it and nobody was gonna steal that drummer of course nobody is taking the running banana. Are. So. That's gotta be close to delay missed white elephant gift ever and I know that those are supposed to be kind of lower cause they're supposed to be cheap they're supposed to be fun and I feel like with the right group of people and the special I don't know maybe her job as these kind of people. You're able to go be a little risque you know you don't have to isn't apt to be something extremely practical world. Course I mean think about it again design agency think about it from their creatives. You have a low you know you've got their price cost ceiling you can't go over twenty docs or whatever to I don't know what laws he can't go over right X amount of money. And the person who put it in the box decides to go I'm gonna go creative and just make a joke about whatever. You know design thing we're doing except I think the problem was was there white elephant was supposed to be. The day of its host the fifth at and they do not open the office that day that following Thursday. Or I think that following Friday I can't I can't remember site I wonder if it was supposed to be a joke like ha ha here's a banana and a satin have been up Oxford. Seven to his and is now ways certainly running banana. But either way I feel like that is the most pour form thing you can do it isn't funny you know OK maybe it's a joke if everyone's giving Joseph Gibbs what is everyone's giving like. Here's an ornament for your tree or here's a gift card to Starbucks or whatever and you get a rotting banana I feel like that is the the most pour for possible thing you can do a white elephant well it. I think you could have the jokers understand if the joke is understood. You know it's a joke came across that you can do something that's ridiculous with a riding banana and if the joke works then then you're like the hero of the party. You know low do you see John's gift he gave that was so funny I know and now people are looking around and be banana and they don't know. If they hate the guy they gave it or they just feel bad for your wife lawsuit and I think they're probably good news there like that guy sucks but man and I feel bad for early she should have just come in today what if I'm sure 200 final that it benefited enough. But. Just. I don't know why elephants are not supposed to tell who give to give some us like you're trying to disclose that could dispose really secret Senator Clinton. Does she does she out himself with a guy give the banana. These sits there. Bright red and stared nobody look at me don't say anything I use the restroom will be right back yeah runs to is our driver the way it used on. The second jobs or. Tolerated it definitely got what you executive. Who couldn't talk at the group now that terrible idea and now she's on a mission to till someone. Minutes the last time a you can do product I'm you know we're going crazy today. Like if my wife is out there to kill someone a sock and be him but I just. I'd just like ice I got that snapped and went what on earth. Kind of gotten something it's something nice maybe it's like a little something you put on your desk or like a little and elegantly and a stuffed animal. Or you know always wetter with wonderful elephant it's always the ornament like the tree ornament that's always what it is. But just maybe he wants her to hang good. Put the rubber BMW what's it going to banana on the tree government. Maybe that's what that was for and yet because the gift of fruit flies is such a great gift. Ever try and you're live in the winter Divx handyman if you sit a bunch like rotting fruit or leave leave. Sugars somewhere anything new they'll pop especially if it's like in your house to your house is essentially. It's warm it's no more NCA yeah I mean outside fruit flies aren't aren't. Surviving but in your house they totally decimated all of the jet maybe I'm wrong but it was a designed joking because of the rubber game rubber band it was supposed to be. An ornament but. No alas we do not a Christmas tree because. Well global you know credit if it didn't affect. The fans tanks like people are sending in their the worst white elephant did so once received or used loop for a that sounds awful. It's like buying underwear from good news or use aloof a better than a rotting banana definitely because that's what you can clean aloof from it yet but at the the washer. You know run it under some hot soapy water. Can't I'm rod a banana how about Blue's Clues animals crackers. That sounds great police seeking Ito's idea paint animal crackers are underrated man they're good. Is to get him all the time on the school bus you know. We got we got awesome. Austin San guess from our. We had the idea of the liquor the liquor bottles you have Sam was still can't think you in the eye and I have never crack can now mine opened up this weekend some sort of track. Oh years you yours is gone. Did you have your entire model already in June alone no stopping its. I mean a lot though. Had to wake up at 4 AM two days ago or one of yesterday's loss do you that was brutal I don't buddy takes me was he gets up early no to go to work and he tuned in to Justine came which it yesterday morning with Luke Anderson and and joke. And egos do pretty solid show but I could tell from six to seven man you're tired it's like did man I don't go to bed till midnight which even if I try. I tried sole hard Tuesday night. To go to bed early and I still fills legally twelve there I told you not to do that yet who sacked him I sit and the best advice and I was the second you try to go to sleep is dissect you're gonna stay up all night trying to obviously hip yep and then we'll see appear normal time deal with that and then. Take him out but you have to implement for a clock rolled around then I woke up and was like. Yeah this is awful. But this is really really LSU a dusting Kim Crawford do yep yep I never have ever heard of never having kids. And MA politely reject a morning show the picnic. But you put into Wii to media this morning show like 999. Accident. Nine to eleven or noon it'll get like that that's a morning show I can give behind you you come in at seven Emmys are waking up with six minutes ago and in a college frat house this guy got a box of used condoms that's pretty awful. About. That might be. Okay that's not my thing that's worse than a robbing the man a packet cools and a forty not sounds like a Thursday night. You can get behind that. A people who have been played O this year. Who'll at least you can use those things yeah I can't. Together. Yeah. Whatever floats your boat Mexico's scary to be using the other you do view but I think the point of this for me was you can give. It crappy gifts new. You've ever read to you crap we give it a white elephant don't give literal garbage yes Lou literally that has to be front immediately because it smells that it should have been thrown out two days ago. Yeah thank deep by the B but I wonder if he bought the banana. Set up the president and then the snowstorm hit. And a week goes by news like. Well I still got it. The stores still rapid through America I know I mean it's starting to rot I guarantee but I've still got it I've noticed more fruit flies around that pile of presents some onto why. Yeah and I hate on my coworkers anyways so let's just do this is the the classic I hate my job anyways so who cares. Locally Doug Lou what a primetime hairs and lynch for the last time this week. The blazers slide continues we'll get to that and a half hour and we have Jason quick. Joining us to talk blazes as he usually does at 530. Royce Freeman made a choice for his senior year in tons of NFL. Packed show tonight hopefully will deliver free guys you can find us on Twitter Mike semi clinched when he seven and you can find me at PDD 085 will serve 1080 the fan. As well harass this without it. You can also takes a fair amount of 55305. That takes on that you interactive us throughout the entire show and if it's worthy will read them I promise you guys rob and his what do you do will you back. Poll question coming up we'll do that next some prime time. Time we're advising consumers not insanity of fans. All right C seventeen here on primetime as Mike Lynch and I'm filling in for the boys yeah. You know I got to do show yesterday with Joseph Fisher who. There's either don't know Jolie is Mike and as producer for the hot corner. On Wednesdays from seven and I may have been billion throughout the last couple weeks as well who's nice and seen Joseph for awhile. Poll question time you know people gentle push in time when I'm. Breaking news about the wrong number himself garrido you know that's why mentioning. We're quick joke. The ticket if you look at blacked out and beating down a little bit. Oh all right win verbal question of the day brought to you by Widmer Brothers brewing in the steel house quarter. Kind of a Seahawks spin on this with Richard Sherman calling up the Seahawks offensive play calling. Dot dot. Your options are the team is split look out. Or it's a sign that OC Darrel bevel needs to go. Or Sherman blows up call Ripley's believe it or not because I'm so shocked. I think that I'm gonna go at the last option yeah on this one it just seems like Sherman being Sherman. Little bit far I mean it will put the reporters stuff I definitely think that goes or what I owe you a little far with him yelling at the offensive coordinator to read. Still it's Richard Sherman. That's part of the reason why. You love him if you if you love him is that he has no qualms about saying what he feels and gone after anybody that he that he opposes if you remember. Let's say it was three or four weeks ago maybe a little longer or he had that fight on the sideline him he was like yelling at his own teammates and they were all jumping in trying to get him to Khaled turn around. This is him read what he does and don't want a little too far by telling Arizona offensive coordinator definite went too far by threatening. To take away have media members press pass which he can't do he's. Easy to hash tag he told me I don't have control over credentials that the collided executed after a but I mean sort of bash is what he does so oh well I blew up call Ripley's believe it or not because I believe it. Yeah others I think there's choose sides to this one yet he blew up OK I'm not really shocked but the other side is. You find his seahawk fan that doesn't that that disagrees with Sherman. All there's not that he's I would pay your whereabouts fun to see up fan that's like Darrell Babel. If when he retires he should be the head coach I know. I think bevel is is. Takes the brunt of a lot of hatred for Seahawks fans because of the offense and if not totally his fault but. He does sometimes run a very cautious offense and then you know just makes curious play calls to spy on him in there you know some of its Pete Carroll some of its Russell Wilson make these decisions so. He takes a lot of the brunt of this kind of stuff but. It's Richard Sherman daily dose. But I also think he is lucky though Pettitte that there is a lot of guys on the team. That will that aren't afraid to come to the media. And make light of the situation. And stick up for Babel I mean I think somebody ask Russell Wilson. If it's on the one yard line would you throw again you know in reference to the rams game and definitely reference to the Super Bowl. And Russell always comes out and says if that's the right play call I'll do it every single time so I think Sherman's lucky that he's got. Guys that. Our I don't know a sense company men tell all that that will go and just say hello Richard you know you just. Plays a lot of passion and he you know he's very care Matt charismatic speaks out feels. That's just him but inside were all good. Well I don't know but put it he's out of it Russell Wilson certainly is and I don't know if he's a guy that you are coming out like defending the team confuse mister robot drivers answers he says nothing. They you don't expect him to say we've seen before Earl Thomas and Michael Bennett who's also very outspoken and they all they all share a lot which is actually pretty refreshing. A lot of NFL teams are filled with Russell Wilson's re get nothing out of them. In the just say what the coach speak of the players speaking is an at least at the C arts and this is just from my perspective I'm not a fan of the team. Just from following them and covering them and and watching the press conferences it's refreshing to see them be a little bit open and be. Get a little feisty sometimes with the media now again what I've Richard Sherman did to. Jim Moore did Jim does name him it was way too far. But you know it it's that kind of thing Matt Beckham opened you up to behind the curtains a little bit him in the team has little bit and incidents I think that's kind of a positive. One got Texan then why do you d.s get away with just being a I think you do if you're really good player yet and Richard Sherman is proven that he's still one of the best corners in the league and he gets away with it because he's just that. Right and then that there's no an opinion I've had for many many years in fact. Behind the curtain dispose when they've first audition for hunt for the hosts and they they tell you to have a two minute rant about anything you want yeah my rent was that. Corners are now the wide receiver divas of the past mean these guys make a whole lot of money. For you know they get signed for five year deals and after the second year of their deal they're not very good anymore they talk on the trash. And they're the look at me guys look at me guys how back in the day it was the receivers that were always kind of like that way and this is just. Another prime example of that but I'll ask you this I'll play a little devil's advocate on this. Do you think they're could be any kind of riff within that locker room. I doubt it I really do I think we've seen we've seen a Seahawks do things like this in the past furthers disagreements in the offense and the defense it's a very very. Vocal passionate locker room and most most NFL locker rooms are very vocal. A lot of them get to this kind of a a passionate thing too we just saw the Broncos apparently have a fight many weeks ago between Von Miller and Russell Kuhn. Former seahawk. Not that means anything just tying it into the story word yeah offense the defense fight each other for what was happening assist. It's a very volatile place is a very it's a very tough place to kind of keep your emotions calm because it's such a violent and aggressive sport. But at the kind of transfers and locker rooms I have. No worries that the Seahawks are gonna have issues based off of this and they've got plenty of problems on the field after dressed. In their consistency in how they're playing offensively. More than just this being an issue I think they're fine. If they were seven and seven would they be fun. Yeah I think so we'll cut 'cause I was ordered to you know the division's pretty much wrapped up if they win this weekend. And a couple other teams lose they have the second seed so it's like yeah we got proms bowl winning so it's okay. A lot of these guys have been their before Pete Carroll's been there for many years now kind of putting in that bad own personality that he wants this team to have. I think they're fine I think they're at a point now where unless it was some new players who came in and didn't get it was causing all this ruckus. That might be a little bit more concerning but. These guys this is what they do and I feel like we've seen this every single year and in some shape or form with with the locker room being. Maybe a quote unquote riff in some way. You guys that I was as I also think this stems a little bit from just the culture that he creates there you know pizza raw rock god keep once you play with heart and emotion and I think. It it's also kind of a testament to him that the locker room is all good that everything's okay. Because Sherman can come out and be critical and did in New York he can't control Dell Beckham junior. I don't know of anybody patrol do that that's that's what I mean and if Sherman were making a ton of money somewhere else with a push over coached. It might be O'Dell Beckham level as opposed to just a guy who's really passionate. I think it is a little bit tough. If we're comparing that situation is that McEntee just came into the job. With whip back a Marty kind of having a personality to where he drafted him and has been around I feel like Pete Carroll kind of molded him this whole team for the most part. In this personality which is part of the reason why they've been so good and so dominant for the most part over the last was it for years now. So I think that's a little bit of a difference there but I. You said Pete Carroll blocker I I guarantee. Whatever he says most of the guys in the team are behind him and are saying okay we get it. Can't do this I'm sure he has the right balance of being positive Pete Carroll which for Tennessee or maybe even a little bit of an aggressive Pete Carroll behind the scenes. I just in a situation he picks and chooses them out ways so. I think it works I think it's fine so this whole Richard Sherman bing it's bad it's a bad look on him but I don't think it affects the team in anyway. It's funny usually when Sherman opens his mouth just a relentless with the picnic assault started when he yelled with Erin Andrews on the sideline in your life. Once the Jesus Danish site all did it at let's relax richer while he was he was quite quite. Quite passionate about and it's since we got to that point. I feel like it's been like Eric this is who's going to be the team's fine. He's good hence why he could still be dean get away with it and it. One more time the winner Brothers poll question of the day is with Richard Sherman calling up the Seahawks offensive play calling. You three choices the team is split watch out. Number two it's a sign that OC Darrel bevel needs to go in three shown Sherman blows up call Ripley's believe or not I actually think. It's a little bootable. I mean Sherman is crazy like we've just been talked about but I do think there are some truth concerns Terrell level. Hum the only reason I don't. Jump on that train of getting rid of Darrel bevel is because. Pizza Smart enough guy that if you believe you do the job he get rid of them. Yeah I agree with that haven't been that I meant I I think that doubles not the best offensive coordinator of agreement agreement. He's done a fine job they're still winning games they're still win the division itself. Got a got him some credit right yes you know especially interviewers she can be eighteen they can't win games and has no chance of winning a division like the Portland trailblazers were gonna diving to walk once again that things not going so well on a back to back my. Potential lack of effort on a back to back. Who on earth could've seen that come we'll talk and we'll talk blazers next on prime time here's Michael sports. Prime time where thighs against two guns NAV those fans. You know we're talking the last couple days about how crappy these bowl games are. I'm actually kind of interest in this Idaho Colorado State game four Y mostly just selfish reasons why spend a semester at the University of Idaho for grad school I did not know that I spent a week for a conference at Colorado State. Yet cool yeah I guess yeah Colorado's state really nice campus in Fort Collins ya cool spot nice people. School very liberal arts comments photos of players are giving much positive talk about the University of Idaho. I know school home of Mike we've got teeth the offensive lineman Marshall heirs and at the voice of captured from sponge Bob. Really yeah yeah. You're CNET old Craig T. Nelson show coach. Yes you know the the football player that's always hang around the real stupid guy with the football on his engine do do do do do. That's the voice of Patrick and sponge Bob and he would to givers about it I did not know that date a guy he went there to play football and then he got a really bad injury and they were like Katie should try theaters so we did it excuse me from a lack of knowledge of the state of Idaho but is there anywhere else that it's not name Boise that actually has real things and it. You know Moscow Idaho is pretty cool and that's right next the moment yeah I was aware of the universe that's really receive idol is it's actually like oh really. Cool quaint little town that's not a 100% dependent on university. It is the lone blue dot in that red state. Interest and yes there's a lot of I got my party together if you're wants you student no not really because the kids it was you heard like super burly and kids Idaho like. Love guns and stuff that's a very different crowd very different crowd I talk someone of one for a semester we did speeches and one was like a persuasive speech and though like really quiet kid he sat in the back full time gave a speech on whitish be able to bring his gun to school and you're like I'm scared for my life you get an a though conflict if they're good at a. Yeah that's funny because when I was applying for colleges I applied and Ithaca new column which is in Ithaca, New York. And in that same town is Cornell University there in the so pound book that's allows up their visiting the college like choosing morals and go. They're like oh yeah we always hang out of all the Cornell kids are in my mind them like criminals in a few weeks completely and efficacy is like a regular school Indians are bad school but right regular school I feel like that's not. You're hanging out with them does that does that work you guys like cross campuses side and that is it didn't really appeal to me. Jim Moscow school I mean it's a lot there's level like arts going on in street fairs and things like that I I like that town parent I would live there I've never been to dark corner of Washington and or I don't know so I would governor you know items got some cool spots almost it. Maybe that's so cool while the blazers played again last night did you know that. I hear I did an inning nail biter 9695. They lost. Can we actually call that team the true nail biter the ending was but. The end game was a blowout and select the fourth quarter sixty to 38 at half. I used seven malady women to us map room. Move like the worst offensive. Are they were the worst offensive teams in the league. I believe they are. 9605 game I think it could hit it Schiller still targeted the blazers don't give up a 130 we're still talking about how bad their defense is they give up 62 and a burst after the mavericks. Oh my job I think terrible I him I think there was a little drama going in near the end but once Wes Matthews. Strips Damien Willard and if you're blazer fan. How toughest act. Because it looked like the blaze had a chance to maybe take the lead. And maybe making a nail biter at one end and then west steals the ball from Damian Willard and scores and you're like and weather is go. Did twice they had they had the chance were were dame threw the ball away when he was kind of stuck in the air driving the lane. But then Dallas gifted them the chance to win again by throwing away the inbounds pass and then he's US like glue on team who alerted a light well. Hope there's a pick coming hit didn't really come and then the shot was just taking a sick it in your dislike well okay. There's another loss they had a nine to one of the worst teams in the league. And usually when dame when Damon has the ball in his hand at the end you're like well this this might happen. It's Dave he's got this he's got this and that I feel like the whole time I was watching with him in the ball was like. The outing go and and all the same thing happen I think it was in the third quarter two women are on that being nineteen to two run or whatever was to kind of get back into the game. Dave Miller took a couple of those really early in the shot clock a deep threes they Ehrlich why if they going to like all great great shot. But if they don't think that's one of the worst shots you can take in that situation when you're trying to keep a run going your gifting them fast breaks on the way back by taking the shots in the whole game. We saw him go a little bit too. Mean mode there is a mean team we kind of went there a little bit and sometimes that's great and sometimes he does great things when he goes into that mode but then the NB a didn't work. In any MBA sometimes you need that superstar to just say OK things are working out jump on the back let's do this bomb. One thing I will say is that game was close at the end and I did see some of the best effort come from the guys that I've seen in a couple weeks but you're like. Too little too late. How many times have we seen that from them this year or even even last year at times when they would be down at halftime. No matter what I was they'd be down and then they come out roaring because they have to come back late. Debt and they were good added to a solid it was a it was a weakness they could comeback. But it happens to office at some point it's got to switch from. Oh believe we have to come back to pay let's actually. Play well hold the lead is a top tournament was a good idea but yeah we talked about this of the day that there really bad holding a lead yes anytime they believe that. We've seen this year countless times third quarters are. Devastating for the blazers they don't have time lead. They get outscored by twelve and all of a sudden there they're down again going into the fourth quarter. That's the biggest concerning thing for me. And there's been a lot to be concerned about and I even just couple days ago I preached patience and I'm still trying to be a little bit. Maybe not optimistic we're just neutral about it it's you know it's not even Christmas yet so let's see what happens but. Losing eight of nine and it was a brutal stretch losing eight of nine including two team like mavericks had a day off from your or not they operator back home. In your playing against the worst team. Back kind of starts to put a little bit of a worry in me. But the biggest concern is they're still doing the same things. Yeah like we you know. Two games ago before the Sacramento game things are like OK the defense is bad but we even talked about this some Monday night we're saying you know hey let's. Let's not completely burial you know that there's still a lot of the season left everything's going to be okay. And then the weird to buckle at the end of the Sacramento game is kind of like. Are maybe that's just weird whatever bogey goes off it's hard to. It's hard to win a game of bogey has over fifty points. Everything's okay. Once you lose to the mavs in the way the fashion win. I'm running out of reasons to be optimistic. And it's early in the season is starting to not be good enough excuse right. Because we're not. Going to be early him and Amer tech went out early in the season now but. We're not eating going to be into doesn't sixteen scene anymore we're going to be in 2017 are going to be at that point were every team picks it up and turns it on. Everyone always says don't watch the NBA it's a Christmas well Christmas is on Sunday yeah so get ready for the time when teams are being looked at seriously again. If that's the time the lawyers decided turn on great. Swell this started off terrible and they've got time to do it and I'm fine but that's going to be the time where everyone. All the people who were still aren't in panic well that's from panic mode gonna be starting because you're getting to up point. Remorse or taken a 100% seriously. Am I you're right there's less and less things we look at as positives. And I think you you're seeing the players as well no longer are they just saying all the good things and in the post game press conferences and don't crowd said yesterday. We talked about it enough woods got to do it. Well you've said ballot once before yet have you done it what are we what are we get it gets there are games you get into games the clippers and the thunder game you want want a bomb and then you stopped. Yet to do it consistently. And I I know it's been a brutal schedule guys from going to be like a little cheerleader here I know you've been on the road for most of the month. Death not a good enough excuse for poor effort being tired great you can still put forth effort if you're tired and I think it's being. It's becoming glaring only obvious that the effort is in their consistently. Against second half yesterday was there my first very much so nonexistent. And we've talked about this this week and even on the hot corner on Wednesdays from seven a nine we've touched on the blazers. I think it's pretty clear that you and I don't take shots. We're not anti blazer by any mean we we. See that the talent on the team and see what happened last year would understand what happens in the offseason and how it's hard to get guys and all that jazz. But I'm. What Humana hum out of stuff to say like I I know let's wait till Christmas but it's now like Christmas this year. Can I stop watching I've been very positive about the team for the last year or so of like a lot of moves Daniel O'Shea has made but. I mean to be fair he he is so far he saw him miss this year completely the team is not built. In a way that's that's conducive to winning. Some some good things coming across the fan takes on a 55 through five of flu or didn't go in to mean mode in the third quarter they lose but when he. Might maybe there's but there's a balance of me mode and stupid shots and getting your teammates involved you and I think he was writing now border in the crossed it on those. To pour placed I think we're down. Try to remember the exact situation and if they were down by six. Maybe even for something and he took no shots in the maps from both of the men shot and instantly was back up to nine. Bats were yet to keep keep in mind what kind of shot is a dish. We'll read some more of your thoughts on the fan takes on a 55 through five we come back and we keep talking about this some things I wanna know about his no Meyers Leonard last night and it Shabazz Napier making his way. In two rotation it's 343 in this is prime time. In time we're advising ensued got a 1080 bills fans. Courtesy 48 on prime time here with Harris and lynch. Tell little blazers ordering some texts coming across on the fan takes on a 55 through five. From the 503 I don't know if I necessarily agree with this but I do wanna bring it up Terry Stotts system doesn't work he's also lost the team. The last play was awful and is often has too many ill advised threes going up I don't know if I necessarily agree that stock has lost the locker room. But the the comment on the threes is kind of their we've talked about the last couple days I mean if I go back and look at three points three pointer attempts made. Last night dame was three for nine from downtown CJ is over for four heartless is O for four. But Allen Crabbe was four of six and Napier Steve for two of those guys are off the bench. Yeah. I feel like it's okay it's issued up all the threes I mean if you wanna look at the most prolific three point shooting team right now outset that I guess the warriors rockets put up like sixty. Two games ago and mayor. Up their much before seat right now on the west and playing pretty well also solid it doesn't work. But I think there's some arguments for what stops does that doesn't work I mean he plays a very very very. Very passive pick and roll defense almost on purpose to kind of try to protect. The inside of the pain because they know they don't really have that big guy who can defend the shots America Wednesday. Winds up hurting memo ought to announcement criticism over the last couple years and it's worked at times and it doesn't work a lot of the time to. And frankly just doesn't work that Damon CJ are very good defenders impeccable either so it hurts it even more. I'd say he's lost locker room might be a bit premature to discuss we don't know. Not that wouldn't come out. On this losing streak you would come out near the end of the year the continues to kind of down there degree maybe a month to right that's that's woman I would be careful saying he's lost the team but. You could criticizes coaching system but his coaching system was also what got them of the playoffs last year along with little bit of luck. And he was the reason why part of the reason why they turn turned around so quickly Wendy Miller can instantly so I don't wanna say it's a bad coaching system but right now it's not working. There's a there's another one that same equipment I know what you mean I know what you mean there's another one on the fan takes a little watery real quick the blazes on all levels are inconsistent. No consistency effort team leadership in setter if this continues stops will be gone a little will be tired of blame. Even if it's weren't in this is something we're gonna as Jason quick when he joins us at 530 when does this pressure start to build on stocks. Because right now I don't think it's a Stotts thing I don't think it's a Stotts thing at all I think it's 100% on the players but if it continues like this. Were gonna start thinking well maybe stocks message isn't getting through these guys. The way that we look at Stotts and you stop this is a guy who. Is very even keel right. He's a guy who all the players seem to love he's a very big players coached he supports his players and he trusts his players. And bumping knees not really is kind of an angry. Fire you up kind of guy release it doesn't appear to be though and we've heard stories of him. Really kind of speaking up in trying to fire the team after a bad loss. But because we're hearing stories about that just makes you know he just doesn't do very often. Which in a lot of cases is a good thing in if I was getting coached in the NBA I would prefer to have a Terry Stotts well coached and I boy working irritated George Karl felt so good at that age has players and yells at everybody and all that kind of stuff. I that's what I would prefer as a player just mild personality suck it works for different players in different ways. Beyond my credited to say there's pressure on him but I'm curious to see. What quick necessary about it later because Hughes of one global war in two in the us being with the team almost every day to to kind of see where abouts. Well to add to your point I remember in my time and it was zoo. We loved Tony Bennett who's similar in style to Stotts farewell Kanye and what's at Albert now Virginia very calm very cool demeanor. But the cool thing that I liked about Bennett and the things that I like about stocks is when those guys get fired up when those guys are really really pissed off you know something's up and you and you listen whether it's. To an official to your own player to another coach. I'd that I'm with you on that I like coaches that. Seemed to have a cool heading keep the other I don't like the Doc Rivers of the world that freaked out about every single little thing going on. I like the guys that are cool calm and when there's a reason the yelling get crazy and didn't set of people and it happens. Yeah I I I have a percent agree with that and I think people blaming stops. Are just trying to kind of dig in and see what could be wrong because. Frankly not a lot of us really know others want tax cut comes and so this is dumb we over achieved last year we don't have the talent. I think some fans do believe that I'm one of them I do think that the team over Cheever last year. I do not agree that the team doesn't have the talent I think there is plenty of talent on this team. But a lot of it is the effort which you've been talking about to you but a lot of things are kind of going I'm outlined too because they're digging in there saying what is wrong. Last year the blazers were competitive in most of their games in their offense was clicking and when they played defense in the kind of middle to late third of the season they turned into a top ten defensive team members a whole quote about it we're Terry Stotts command said we can be. Top ten defense the rest of the are gonna make playoffs that's what they did for most of it and limit the playoffs. So. We're trying to find what's. Right and if I had to make a stand and say what was wrong. I think it's simply it's just effort gaffe and the fact that none of these guys are good defenders I think that's the other that's the other key parties. Defense is part effort in part excuse we always hear that. So effort is missing in some cases and they're just not good defenders and you could practice defense all you want. But in some case he's just not gonna be a very good defender and maybe it's partly a mindset thing but a lot of it's just you're not good and I think it back into that mix as is what's happening. You are hoping metastasis Healy was going to be this great inside presence slopes that's up panning out Kazaa for the year. You're kind of hoping for that coming you went out and try to get some lights out in the offseason that didn't pan out. You tried to get some better defensive stoppers. Chandler Parsons who might have actually missed the ball a -- because he's been often on the injury report all your head injury concerns most of his career guy and he was supposed to be a better defender. That's arguable but that's kind of the guys are going after it just didn't work out this offseason and it's coming to fruition right now they don't. Play defense I think it I think. It's clearly a problem on the player level in not on the coaching or GM level when I look at the last three games who were the best two players on the blazers. Mason pummeling. Shabazz Napier. Like I know Evan Turner's hurt insertion Baz is seen more time when he's out there he's the only guy hustling. And I see clumsily I mean. Say what you want about plumber he can not his game you can knock his consistency but the man I've seen him try not in and night out bubbly is a great facilitating extent yes bubbly is not a great defensive center you're not winning you're not quite the lamp oil out to right right but at least the main is trying. And I think if we could see that a lot more from other people I think things. Would be a lot better I mean Meyers Leonard and no formally don't play last night. They don't play at all you know and so are those guys clearly not giving effort in some other sitting because starts sees that it's just weird the whole. Figuring out the rotation is. Is is been a strange thing. All right I think that's all I can do on the blazers pay act I think that's it until disagree until Jason quick comes unmanned these. It's so loud it's so loud and really frustrating here yet because we try to stay positive you know we're not we don't wanna I wanna Barry this team I liked a lot of the pieces on the steam but. I'm not like we said were run and excuses. Run out of excuses are will pick against the spread for some NFL games coming up. I'm actually gonna pick the spread on some really bad game so you wanna check and a match is 356 and this is primetime with terrorists and lynch.
