The Doug Gottlieb Show Weekly Rewind – 7/28-8/01

STAN KASTEN – 7/28/14
Los Angeles Dodgers president and part owner

“Clayton has a combination of many of the qualities of all three of those guys. He has the raw stuff that a Smoltz had, but he has the intelligence of all three of those pitchers. He has the work ethic of all three of those pitchers. It really is a combination of many of the best aspects of all three of them. Now, they had longevity. Those guys went 10 years with hardly missing a start. Clayton’s working on that. But if he builds up the years, he’ll be right up there with them in time for sure.”

COREY LIUGET – 7/29/14
San Diego Chargers defensive end

“This year, guys know that we have something very special here in San Diego. Not only that, but I know as an individual what my coach expects out of me, and I know what I expect out of myself, which is just to play at a very high level – to give it all we have for the next six or seven months and see where it leads us. If we come into work focused every day and give it all we have mentally and physically, I believe we can be a darn pretty good team.”

KYLE RUDOLPH – 7/29/14
Minnesota Vikings tight end

“I feel like anyone who watched our games (last year knows) we were completely reliant upon Adrian Peterson. Adrian is a phenomenal football player – the best running back in our game, if not one of the best of all time. I feel like what Adrian is saying there is, ‘You’re not going to be able to just key on me anymore.’ We have a ton of playmakers in this locker room on the offensive side of the ball, and as I mentioned before, Norv has such a great feel (for what to do) and throughout the course of the game is going to get the ball into the hands of everybody on that side of the ball. So we’re really excited to come out with a little more balanced attack this year.”

JIM BOEHEIM – 7/30/14
Syracuse basketball head coach

“To me, he looks the same or better right now. In fact, I think he’s improved his shooting because obviously he’s had a lot of time to work on his shooting in the gym. But I don’t think he’s lost a step. I think obviously there will be a little rust in game situations, but I think he’s smart and Chicago’s smart for having him here because he can get that rust off. He doesn’t have to play 40 minutes a game. He might play 20 minutes a game here. He can get in shape, get his rust off his game and be ready to go when he comes back with Chicago.”

St. Louis Cardinals pitcher

“I tried to get him out in the strike zone. I was challenging him. I did not want to hit him; I did not want to walk him. So I gave him a pitch to hit in the zone. I didn’t throw it where I wanted to. I tried to throw it down and away. But good hitters hit pitches in the middle of the plate. That’s the way it goes. Like I told a hundred different media outlets, I have no regret on the way I went about things, just the execution of the pitch. That’s all.”

Jacksonville Jaguars tight end 

“I’m going to be totally honest with you. We don’t really think about wins out here. We think about playing our personal best and having victory – and victory is playing your personal best and giving our best and living with the results. We don’t really concentrate on winning because that’s not what we can control. We control our preparation. I can tell you that the work that we’re putting in now, we’re paying the price. We’re making hard work deposits so we can take it out on Sunday and whatever happens, happens.”

Denver Broncos tight end 

“That’s something we’ve talked about (as) something we have to focus on doing better. Coming into this offseason, we said, We’ve got to run the ball effectively. We have some talented pass-catchers, Peyton – but we judge our run game based on effectiveness. It’s an important part of the game. We have to do better at it, and we’ve all been working at that this training camp.”

JAY PATERNO – 8/1/14
Penn State quarterback coach

“They don’t know really what happened – and I address it. The first full chapter of the book is called ‘The Elephant in the Room’ and it addresses a lot of the misperceptions about what happened at Penn State. There’s a lot of things that people think . . . as it relates to Penn State and Joe Paterno that are not true. And I understand why. Very early on, there were some narratives that came out that were ill-informed and not accurate – and (I) felt like if it was your school and your father and a program you gave a lot if your life to, you would certainly want to correct the record. That’s a big part of it. But also, there’s a lot of things in my dad’s life that are lessons worth learning and can have a lot of impact on people’s lives in a very positive way.”
