Subtitles section Play video Print subtitles the game myself, Marcus Mariota. And this year he played pretty well. I mean, he looked agile. He was mobile. He was throwing the ball extremely well. It just and I know it's a small sample sides, but I don't feel like you have to give up a lot for a guy like Marcus Mariota. And if the marketplace dwindles, if you're Ryan Pace, Matt Nagy, if you have one shot at it, I feel like Marcus Mariota might be the most dynamic option you have. Why not go? For If you could turn, you could turn Marcus Mario into some draft capital. If you're Jon Gruden and Mike Mayock and it makes sense, then you do it. But I'm certainly not giving up my backup quarterback, given, uh, the opportunity for him to maybe take over for Derek Carr of Derek starts to struggle. If we keep Derek Carr, especially on the number that we got him at, he's got, I would say backup money. He doesn't have started money. We're paying him at a premium as a backup in the league. But if you're willing to surrender a late second round pick or something along those lines, then maybe we could have that conversation because it makes sense. But I'm just not willing to give up. You know, I'm not willing to give up a guy just because you think you want him. You had a chance to sign him in free agency last year and you elected not to. Because you traded for Nick Foles. So that's on you. Let me bring up just two quick points and we're gonna go to the phone line because we have a white hot caller on the phone line Way Dio, we're gonna use that all morning now, but he's here to help us. I'm gonna get the chat in Just a minute. Chat in Charlotte if you can hang on just two quick things on Mario to the after member number one. As Jay said, Mario was picked as the second overall selection, but his keys said oftentimes and I agree. And I think this is where your points converge and come together because you're the second overall pick. There's this unrealistic unrealistically expectation about what you're going to be able to dio. He has said the bears need just a guy. Let's be honest, Marcus Mariota, Nice guy Heisman Trophy winner. Really honest, really sweet. Represented college football. Great way, all that stuff like me after what you said this morning. Definitely nice guy. But Marcus Mariota is just a guy. We have to just admit he was the second overall pick. So you want all these grandiose things out of him, but he's not. He's just another guy, and that's exactly what the Bears need. So two keys point. That's what they need to Jay's point. That's what they're trying to do. The second thing I would say is the Raiders general manager, Mike Mayock, and I know Gruden's calling shots. But before he became the Raiders general manager, he was the NFL's Networks version of Mel Kiper Jr Totally got it. He's the grandfather. He started the whole thing. But Mayock created in his cottage industry for himself, is well and became respected. Mariota was very well held in regard by Mayock when he was working for the NFL Network, so I would just say that if they're not sold with car at least, Mayock says. I really like this guy. This could be a guy we should keep, not a guy we should trade because when he had his old hat on, he was. He was just over the moon in his praise for Mariota. But the bigger point key is that I think Marcus Mariota is just ah, guy. He was drafted. Are you talking about the Oakland Raiders hat or the Las Vegas Raiders used with that rich one to put on my point? And when you say just a guy and I know it's the second overall pick, you're expecting a lot E. He's always poop on on the second overall picks. Zubin. It always happens on the show. You number one overall person went also second overall, i e. I was gonna say that when you look at guys that people would say is just a guy, just the guys win, Hold totally They win, Right Baker Mayfield was selected as the number one overall pick. I'll take what he's doing in Cleveland any day of the week because he's serviceable. He does what we're asking him to do. We're not asking him to go five wides out and empty, and we're gonna throw the ball 50 times. That's not his strength. His strength is doing exactly what they have him doing in Cleveland right now, and they figured it out. That Chicago same recipe play defense, brother Downfall and get a quarterback that can sustain drives and not screw it up. Tell me who he talked to. No, it's not. It's not about who. It's about you as a coach getting that individual person to do those things. I could take Sam Donald and put him in. Put him in Chicago. Can Chicago do with Cleveland? Deal with Baker? Mayfield? That's the question. Is Matt Nagy smart enough? And I guess Bill Lazor, offensive coordinator. Is he the guy? Those two guys together smart enough to realize this is what we need to do in order to be successful? Or are they looking across the street at Kansas City? Are they looking down the road at Green Bay in up the road over here at what New Orleans does with Drew Brees and figure? Oh, we got to do that. The wind. No, you don't. You have to do a philosophy that works for your system in your style of play. Chicago again, I'll say it again. They went to the damn Super Bowl with Rex Grossman, man stop and I know it was a long time ago. What has changed in the philosophy in Chicago bear football since then, Nothing has always been the same or the same organization. Papa Bear, Jalisco Mike Ditka Thio thing.
