On the eighth episode of “Great Dane Nation,” Morten is joined by his Pro Football Hall of Fame brother and San Francisco 49ers legend Ronnie Lott (07:34 – 36:06). But first, he checks in with TommyFreezePops (Tom Carroll) to talk about the weekend that was in the football world. There was a “quadruple-doink” this weekend in a college football game between Rice and Middle Tennessee State. Morten talks about this incredibly rare kicking occurrence, and whether or not he ever fell victim to the dreaded “doink” on a field goal attempt (01:26). With the Pittsburgh Steelers beating the Tennessee Titans to become the lone undefeated team remaining in the NFL, Morten talks about the mentality of heading into a game against a powerhouse opponent (04:31). Finally, Morten rants about that dreadful showing by Michigan State in their home opener against Rutgers (05:26).We then move to our interview with Ronnie, where he discusses a wide array of topics: coming up in an era of violent hitters (08:16); whether or not he would succeed in today’s game as a defensive back with game having changed so much since his retirement (10:07); the key to being a great tackler, and why bad tackling fundamentals may have contributed to Luke Kuechly’s early retirement (13:20); why his time playing high school football was the best time of his life (15:33); what makes George Kittle so special (17:47); why playing the tough New Orleans Saints defense twice a year throughout the 1980s helped the 49ers be who they were (21:36); the people, players and coaches that set the tempo for the 49ers dynasty in the 1980s (21:56); why he still believes Joe Montana is the greatest quarterback of all-time (26:19); having Steve Young in the locker room while Joe Montana was still clearly “the guy,” and why this year’s Lakers with LeBron James might be a good comparison (27:41); why he cherishes his first Super Bowl ring more than the others (29:24); playing college football at USC with Marcus Allen, and how that helped him learn to be a champion (30:12); his time with the Los Angeles Raiders, and his relationship with Al Davis (31:28); and finishing his career with the New York Jets playing under a young Pete Carroll (33:37).Then, TommyFreezePops is joined by Brian Edwards for his weekly check-in with the experts from VegasInsider.com (41:03 – 49:10). After a dominating performance on the road in New England against the Patriots, is it time for us to rethink the 49ers’ ceiling as we move forward through the NFL season (42:13)? Plus, the guys talk about a huge AFC North matchup between the Steelers and Ravens (43:48), the Green Bay Packers looking to keep it rolling against the struggling Minnesota Vikings (45:19), and Justin Herbert going for his second career win on the road against the Denver Broncos (46:34).Finally, we close things out with Morten’s “Game Winner” – a weekly segment where Morten monologues his biggest takeaway of the week. This week, he talks about his friend Ronnie Lott, and how his professionalism on the field translates to everything he does off the field (49:10).
