Kicking off Season 2 of Sports Legends of the Carolinas, this week's guest is Greg Olsen, who lit up opposing defenses for nine years as a Pro Bowl tight end for the Carolina Panthers, and has had an extraordinary start to his second career: calling color for the NFL on FOX. Olsen lives in Charlotte with his wife Kara and their three children — Tate, Talbot and T.J. He is almost as well known in the Queen City for his charity work as he is for his football and broadcasting prowess. We did this interview at a Charlotte steakhouse called “Steak 48,” which on Feb. 27 will host an Olsen charity event to benefit his “The HEARTest Yard” initiative. In this conversation, Olsen discussed Tom Brady (before Brady retired from the NFL on February 2); the upcoming Super Bowl; T.J.'s continued improvement after his heart transplant in 2021; and why Carolina's loss to Denver in Super Bowl 50 still gnaws at Olsen. Sports Legends of the Carolinas is hosted by Scott Fowler. It's produced by Loumay Alesali, Jeff Siner and Kata Stevens. McClatchy's director of audio is Davin Coburn.

Today's word of the day is 'cleared' as in Tua Tagovailoa has been cleared from concussion protocol as in Greg Olsen may clear the FOX booth as in LeBron may clear Kareem's record very very soon as in parents are making it very clear they cannot be at youth sports events. Let's start with Tua and why it's taken so long to get out of the protocol. (7:50) Tom Brady has officially retired. Now it's onto the FOX booth. People have loved Greg Olsen and he's even calling this Super Bowl. Is this what Tom really thinks retirement should be? (12:55) Kareem's scoring record was the unbreakable record. That was it. No one thought it could be done. Here steps in LeBron James who is now 89 points away. And there's no slowing down. (18:50) Youth sports parents have been out of control forever. People are dying because of these fights. What are we doing? (24:30) Matt Rhule has filed arbitration against David Tepper and the Carolina Panthers. He wants his money. Will he get it? (34:55) Broadway Rising. (39:20) NPPOD. (40:20) Eagles offensive lineman Josh Sills has been indicted on rape and kidnapping from an incident that occurred in 2019. The Eagles are in the Super Bowl. He is not in the Super Bowl. Does this Thursday feel like a Monday, or is it just me? Woof!

Dan Bernstein, Laurence Holmes and Leila Rahimi opened their show by discussing the Bulls' 108-103 loss to the Clippers on Tuesday and quarterback Tom Brady announcing his retirement from the NFL on Wednesday morning. Holmes then shared what Bulls coach Billy Donovan told him in response to him asking if forward DeMar DeRozan should increase his 3-point attempts.

Hour 3: Gio's high school equipment manager has been the Eagles equipment manager for years now and is going to his third Super Bowl. Gio is thinking of joining a pickleball league. Gio said after this bike tour he's doing with Boomer, he is no longer doing any cardio work except for walking. We got breaking news in the middle of this segment: Tom Brady is retiring. It came right from his mouth. We talked about the future of Greg Olsen. Gio said Moose Johnston stinks. C-Lo returns for an update but first we talked more about announcers. Gio said Tony Romo had no idea about the ‘Burrow-Head' talk. In the final segment of the hour, we talked about Tom Brady announcing his retirement this morning on video on his social media channels. A caller can't believe Brady is going out with Todd Bowles as his coach. We thought Brady might go to the Raiders with Josh McDaniels, but now that he retired maybe Aaron Rodgers ends up there instead of the Jets.
Hour 1: Jerry is in for Boomer today. Gio and Jerry start with the coverage of Nathaniel Hackett and Aaron Rodgers' love for the guy. Gio isn't sure if Rodgers wants to play, if the compensation will be right or if the Packers really want to move on from him. Rodgers seems annoyed that the Packers are talking about trading him without including him in the discussions. Gio also said Aaron Rodgers would likely be re-energized coming to the Jets. What if Rodgers doesn't come to the Jets? What if Derek Carr doesn't come to the Jets? C-Lo is here for his first update of the day but first we talked about the big pretzel he got at WaWa before coming into work. Aaron Rodgers was on the Pat McAfee Show and talked about his love of Nathaniel Hackett. DeMeco Ryans is the new Head Coach of the Texans. Sean Payton is headed to Denver to be their Head Coach. LeBron and the Lakers beat the Knicks at MSG. In the final segment of the hour, Shaun Morash made a video about Eagles fans and it kind of sounds like porn dialogue. Plus a caller wants Mike White, not Aaron Rodgers for the Jets. Hour 2: The Knicks lost to LeBron and the Lakers last night and Gio said they are a very frustrating team. What are the Knicks right now? Average. Gio said the Knicks are like a bad TV show that you watch because there's nothing else on. C-Lo returns for another update and starts with the Lakers beating the Knicks behind a LeBron triple double. There were also a lot of references to the movie, Young Frankenstein. In the final segment of the hour, Gisele is going to talk to Vanity Fair about her divorce from Tom Brady. Jerry doesn't expect anything controversial from Gisele. Gio does a Jim Gray impression. Gio saw the movie, ‘The Whale' and thought it was ok. He liked ‘The Banshees of Inisherin'. Hour 3: Gio's high school equipment manager has been the Eagles equipment manager for years now and is going to his third Super Bowl. Gio is thinking of joining a pickleball league. Gio said after this bike tour he's doing with Boomer, he is no longer doing any cardio work except for walking. We got breaking news in the middle of this segment: Tom Brady is retiring. It came right from his mouth. We talked about the future of Greg Olsen. Gio said Moose Johnston stinks. C-Lo returns for an update but first we talked more about announcers. Gio said Tony Romo had no idea about the ‘Burrow-Head' talk. In the final segment of the hour, we talked about Tom Brady announcing his retirement this morning on video on his social media channels. A caller can't believe Brady is going out with Todd Bowles as his coach. We thought Brady might go to the Raiders with Josh McDaniels, but now that he has retired, maybe Aaron Rodgers ends up there instead of the Jets. Hour 4: Tom Brady retired in the 8am hour and we talked about it again here. Is Brady screwing the Jets one more time by retiring, thus sending Aaron Rodgers to the Raiders instead of the Jets. We talked about other landing spots for Aaron Rodgers that could be competing with the Jets. Gio asks what Tom Brady's greatest moment was. Gio is happy he got to see Tom Brady win a Super Bowl in person, even though it was an incredibly boring game. C-Lo returns for his final update of the day and starts with the audio of Tom Brady announcing his retirement. Aaron Rodgers was on with Pat McAfee and talked about the Packers being in discussions about him, but without him. Gio said if you follow Boomer's breadcrumbs, Derek Carr is going to Carolina with Frank Reich. Jeff McNeil of the Mets met the media to talk about his new contract. In the final segment of the hour, we talked to a listener who's a professional pickleball player.
In the third hour, Dan Bernstein and Laurence Holmes were joined by Dan Wiederer of the Tribune to discuss the NFC champion Eagles and AFC champion Chiefs advancing to Super Bowl LVII, how the Chicago Bears can emulate Philadelphia's success and more. Bernstein and Holmes then discussed the idea of the Bulls dealing away guard Alex Caruso at the NBA trade deadline and the possibility of Chicago shutting down guard Lonzo Ball for the season. Ball hasn't played since last January, when he suffered a small tear in the MCL in his left knee. Later, Bernstein and Holmes shared their takeaways from the FOX broadcast of the NFC Championship and the CBS broadcast of the AFC Championship.
The guys agree with the Eagles being early favorites against the Chiefs in Super Bowl LVII. Greg Olsen shines while CBS might regret paying Tony Romo. And Joe Burrow still in line for a big pay day.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
The NFL salary cap is going to jump to $224.8M for next season. Will the Steelers make a splash? The guys looked at some of the Steelers high-cost players and what adjustments they could make to spend more this off-season. Are the Steelers getting their worth out of their big contract players? The guys want to see the Steelers load up in the trenches and yesterday's games were a good example of how important they are. Where does the Joseph Ossai personal foul penalty rank among stupid plays in sports history? Poni said if he was a Steeler he would be looked at as the dumbest player in the city's history. Chris thinks it's worse because his own teammates were getting on him for it. Is this worse than the Rashard Mendenhall fumble or the Neil O'Donnell interceptions in the Super Bowl? Brock Purdy let Mullsy down yesterday. But he feels good about not calling him a system QB. And another solid performance from Greg Olsen in the booth yesterday as he continues to open the gap between himself and Tony Romo on CBS.

Hour 1: Gio spoke the Giants win into existence. Everything he predicted they would do against the Vikings, they did. The two players Gio trashed all season, Daniel Jones and Saquon Barkley, did his Vikings in. Gio had friends and his mother in law over for the game and he was getting very annoyed. Gio said he should have become a Giants fan as a kid, his life would be so much better. Boomer said Brian Daboll has unlocked Daniel Jones. Jerry starts in Minnesota with some play by play from the Giants Wild Card win. The Bengals beat the Ravens thanks to a 98 yard fumble recovery. Bengals radio was fired up. The Bills beat the Dolphins 34-31. They had a 17-0 lead early in the game. Jerry went around the NBA and the local college basketball games. And the Rangers lost to Montreal. In the final segment of the hour, we let callers yell at Gio. Hour 2: Dexter Lawrence is almost unblockable and he will be a huge factor in this upcoming game against the Eagles. Gio is not a fan of Greg Olsen in the booth. Says all he does is point out the obvious. He predicts he will be mocked badly when he calls the Super Bowl and people are paying attention. A caller yells at Gio not to disrespect Daniel Jones anymore. The Vikings didn't throw it Justin Jefferson's way one time in the fourth quarter. Jerry returns for an update and starts with audio from Gio going crazy on Giants fans from Friday. He then plays the Giants scoring a TD and reaction from Giants players in the locker room.

Gio said maybe he is not allowed to have happiness with his sports teams because he has a good family life. Hour 3: The credit goes to the Giants offense and the blame goes to the Vikings defense. The Vikings didn't even target Justin Jefferson once in the fourth quarter. Boomer said Daniel Jones did a great job of reading defenses both for his passing and his running.

Jerry returns for his final update of the morning but first Boomer and Tiki were breaking down the final 4th down of the game in the hallway during the break.
