On Paul Finebaum's show (Mon 2/3), Finebaum started the show discussing A.J.McCaron's interviews on various shows. A.J. was on Jim Rome and Dan Patrick's show. A.J. commented that younger players did not appreciate the effort it took to be good. That comment got A.J. in Finebaum's crosshairs.

When Dexter McCluster was delivering turkey and other goods, one old lady told him to work harder. KC Chiefs are owned by a private person (Hunt family).
