Have a chance to have to really implement in my game. Always wondered about this when we're gonna have you want and I remember when you got drafted by the Bengals and Jon Kitna had a great season that first year. Now you're coming out of college. You're you're starting -- they don't Levy on the bench where would you have been ready to start when you left USC drafted by the bundles. -- -- have been ready to start but I wouldn't have been ready to perform at the same level that -- -- -- was performing that. You know what I came out that was the big talk you know what do -- do that he played good enough player and and there was so much. Dialogue with that. It what's the best way who do it the right way who took the wrong way. If it in my situation it was just you know who's who gives us a better chance to win at that time Jon Kitna was playing really well he'd been there for a long time he knew the system and it was a great opportunity for me to sit back and learn from. One of the true. -- them and as far as being a mentor me jobless. Has -- is taught -- things back there in the festivities today and and but now. The year's draft number one and want to turn your plan right away. You look at these quarterbacks here you mean even Ryan -- He's gonna compete for the job of Brendan Wheaton in Cleveland he's going to be competing for the job you know Griffin and locker gonna start right away. How's the game changed to allow them to succeed. Well I don't know if -- is actually change just that thought process of you know.

Go through all those growing pains earlier and and there's a reason your draft and I. That's -- not very good. And and you you'll you have another year to kind of sit back and Olympic I learned and and go through struggles and you hope you're two and three years -- -- years to really compete for a the division championship or Super Bowl. But right now it's could make a play get him in there. Little take their lumps what about a whole offseason to watch film and souls and understand why they made mistakes and and be ready to second third year. Carson Palmer Raiders quarterback joining us Dan Patrick show. Your impressions. Of the Raiders while you're in Cincinnati was -- and how is that different from now that you're there. You know there was a rough start when. The last the last decade. Centrist or left who's who's been. Brooks on the raider nation. -- struggled -- and being all the way up there in the midwest slash East Coast you you know you don't have a real good feel what's going on but ever since I've been here. I've been. More more impressed the longer I've been here it's a true organization it's it's. There's there's somebody there's running at Reggie McKenzie he's got a direction he's got a lot of goals and he's he's taken the small steps to get there he's not rushing anything. He's tired his guy and think coach Allen and coach Jones put together great staff and and he's changed a lot of things just put extra from what I've heard since the passing of the late great Al Davis displaces changed drastically in it's it's been exciting news to see it happen and and see these things unfold not really excited to get -- -- into casino listings and -- Do you care about patching up a relationship but the Bengals. And I've I've moved on they've moved on and hand. I don't know if anything he's been touched up -- But it is what it is you know it was time to move on whose title and move on and -- there -- a better place and they come to play at a better place. But if you look back into -- at least indulge me with that to understand it that I know you wanted to win and I know that you went to an awful lot with the organization but. What was it that really bothered you the most that you said I'd rather retire than play here. It wasn't one thing you know there was more than anything it was just time you know I put in. You know -- on nine years and gave everything I had him and you know don't look back and regret anything. But it was just time it was hard to it and move on to have a young team that was an up and coming team. There was time effort for me to move on and and I think in years to come in -- both organizations look practices this thing was -- -- the. -- how close were you to retire. I was six games and returner fighter 56 games in the retirement solos and Obama or what did you do on Sundays. But watch football but what shall fall -- my first game the last game. With a beer and not chosen the guys in the neighborhood. Are. -- -- He had you know DirecTV at the end of the red zone there and just flipping back and forth Sunday ticket.
