William DC today as Tim Geithner was grilled on Capitol Hill and president Barack Obama continue to push his health care plan but.
The real face off the -- -- -- his face office tonight.
When the Pittsburg Steelers beat the Tennessee Titans for kickoff for the 2009 football season.
Much awaited season given the various controversial and unfolded in pre season here to score the next sixteen weeks is two time Super Bowl champion coach.
Jimmie Johnson -- of course is also an analyst for fox sports NFL pregame show and that's why I feel what I've known you for years I'm part of the fox family what do you mean it's controversy and and downright don't.
-- -- -- I Jerusalem let's get right to it let's talk -- depending on who you -- -- break -- far Michael Vick I mean there's all sorts of things that's not controversy that's optimism.
-- idiotic they get a recorder what I say we're gonna win at all to tell you the truth what interests me more even though you know Brett Favre we were friends woody Johnson and jets and he was with the jets.
It's the vick's situation what he's gonna do with the Philadelphia team that I find fascinating that that that back line what is he gonna do is he -- energize that team and a special way.
Yeah I really don't see him make -- a great contribution in the first half of the season he's a long way away.
And blessing that looked like that in three -- -- -- -- he struggled and but he has a talent.
And I think he can help that football team as a backup quarterback if Mac -- goes down -- our.
In the wildcat situation you're in -- wonder they don't you love the move like that when that happened and you know where he's gonna help Philadelphia.
Teams -- gonna have to practice getting ready for Michael Vick.
Practice all -- spreads in the options in the wildcat formations.
All of us are not familiar we're doing it right and all the time they're practicing guess that they're not practicing against of conventional pro style of offense.
And Donovan McNabb I think he will help McNabb in that way.
They'll be defending ghost and then they'll see the regular -- -- -- we do love Brett Favre to what do you think his chances are.
He's he went to a great team and they run the football they play great defense.
Favre just got to protect the ball.
If he fits into the system.
He protects the ball we know he can be a leader he can make the plays but he can't carry that football team doesn't have -- mark he's one of the great quarterbacks ever play the game.
But he's not one great quarterbacks they're playing today although line protect him.
And help protect him because they run.
Well then you are -- let's let's talk about you for a moment because.
You have the unenviable position you've been in it twice of having to follow some great leaders and it up pretty darn well -- -- bring your teams to Super Bowls but but what was it like.
Feeling it first Landry shoes at Dallas and then -- -- down in Miami.
Well before then upload the -- now murdered when an actual temperature of Miami.
The other thing that I did at Miami University of Miami as -- graduation rate went from 33%.
While so even though we'll play a role in that who.
Recruited players that went to class and got their education did you make sure that the -- LA you're sure -- we did we did the right way you know was the mentor I was a father figure.
Not make sure they got their education but then your own course -- everything.
They're great coaches Tom Landry was they were the worst in the league you know they were losing game so the fans were clamoring saying hey we won't something better and fortunately you know docket you know here I've lost two regular season games in four years -- -- -- running out of us pretty good look.
We did improve that record -- -- head to head Dallas but.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- They're such different characters I mean Landry they use different off field but off field missiles quiet -- had all of -- was -- the same off field.
Yeah he's such a nice.
Poised man his first -- he's first but any employees you're you're more outgoing every Lester bird -- everybody's got to coach your own personality and everybody's different and that was my personality and so.
It doesn't mean that one's right and one wrong just that you've got to be yourself and what about the dolphins what I don't usually a good thing about the -- -- -- a team that was.
You know older team -- -- Dan Marino is at the end of his career.
And we -- in the playoffs the last three years -- in the second round -- playoffs last two years so we got better but that was -- as far as we could go all right let's talk about the NFL -- general now because the times are tough for everybody we all know that by some of the some of the teams or selling out their tickets which may lead to blackouts and that's no fun for anybody that's to be expected in some of the small market but but there's still sponsorships I know Procter & Gamble you -- portable Procter -- right well right Procter & -- and it's it's you know really the official.
Locker room product of the NFL and you begin to think about these tough football players -- got a tough products and that's what do it hits you he can shape got to have a Dell products and any other smell nice.
You know -- see all these players in their interviews after the game they all look nice there is no the head and shoulders you know.
They're ready is all funny when you see a big tough guys say young I -- night hey you know what.
Were they old days they didn't do right now have new the new player today's player.
You know they look like they just came out of the makeup room when they get ready for an interview after the game but it's because of Procter & Gamble on the problem.
But the point is is that even even though times are tough and some some sponsorships or -- leave and some industries -- it doesn't seem to be happening with the NFL they still see it.
As a captive audience that they want to reach well I think for one thing you you know with the NFL and with sports and football games.
You people watch -- live.
You they don't put -- don't tape or cable or.
And DirecTV you're there -- -- -- is not the same -- they watch it live so they watch all the commercials I think that's one thing.
And I and I think that that thing about it they identify within -- -- they identify with those players and so.
Even though the economy might be struggling in some areas.
It doesn't struggled near as much with the NFL and are you still haven't funnel the amendment by NFL team fox NFL Sunday with Terry Bradshaw and Howie Long -- in -- V Michael -- -- we we have Australian working strange working good I'm a you know very intelligent witty.
You know he likes that some funny he fit right into our group who's gonna win a Super Bowl.

Like San Diego.
You get a look at the Stater you've got to look at New England but I like Philadelphia and I like San Diego mentioned giants and there.
