TRANSCRIPT

TYRANN MATHIEU ON THE
PHONE RIGHT NOW.
BY THE WAY, THE RAMS WILL NOT BE
A GIMME THIS YEAR.
THEY'RE ON THE COUPLES.
>> THE RAMS COME IN AND SAY
THAT'S A WIN.
I WON'T SAY THAT.
>> I'M NOT SO COMFORTABLE DOING
THAT.
WE'RE BACK IN 66.
TYRANN MATHIEU CALLING IN TO THE
PROGRAM.
DON'T YOU DARE MOVE.
>>> WELCOME BACK TO THE RICH
EISEN SHOW.
SAVE TIME AND MONEY.
LOCK IN GUARANTEED SAVINGS FROM
CERTIFIED TRUE CAR DEALS IN YOUR
AREA.
SAVE TIME.
SAVE MONEY.
DOWNLOAD TRUE CAR TODAY.
WHO IS THE GREATEST GAME SHOW
HOST OF ALL TIME?
>> BOB BARKER HAD THE 2% LEAD.
WE HAVE CHRIS LAW, THE FAVORITE.
>> HAPPY BIRTHDAY.
>> I FEEL SO VALUED.
>> AS IF IT WASN'T WHEN WE ASKED
WHAT WAS THE MOST VALUABLE
FINGER TWO WEEKS AGO.
I COULDN'T BE MORE PROUD.
AS A FELLOW DOG RESCUE.
HE SAT IN THE CAR WITH WINDOWS
ROLLED UP, THE TEMPERATURE IN
THE CAR ROSE TO 105 DEGREES TO
SHOW PEOPLE.
DO NOT LEAVE YOUR PETS IN THE
CAR.
IT DOESN'T MATTER IF IT IS
SUMMER OR NOT.
BUT AT THIS TIME PLEASE BE MORE
COULD GOIES IN ANT OF WHERE YOU
KEEP YOUR PETS.
HOW ARE YOU?
>> HEY, RICH, I'M DOING REALLY
GOOD.
>> YOU'RE IN A CLIMATE
CONTROLLED ENVIRONMENT RIGHT
NOW, RIGHT?
>> YEAH.
I'M SAFE.
I'M SAFE RIGHT NOW.
>> HOW DID YOU GET INVOLVED IN
ALL THIS?
>> WELL, PETA REACHED OUT TO MY
MARKETING TEAM.
THE FUNNY THING ABOUT THAT, IS I
SHOT THAT VIDEO.
I SHOT THAT ON MY BIRTHDAY SO I
HAD TO SACRIFICE A LITTLE BIT SO
I WAS GLAD THAT IT TURNED OUT
THE WAY IT TURNED OUT.
>> SO WHEN YOU GOT IN THE CAR,
DESCRIBE HOW IT WAS LOCKED IN
THAT CAR WITH THE WINDOWS UP.
>> I MEAN, FROM THE SECOND I GOT
IN THE CAR.
I WAS UNCOMFORTABLE.
I WAS AFFECTED BY THE HEAT.
THE SUN AND THEN TRAPPED INSIDE
OF A CAR WITH NO AIR
CONDITIONING.
IT WAS REALLY TOUGH THROUGHOUT
THE ENTIRE ORDEAL.
SO I WAS, I WAS PRETTY SURPRISED
THAT I MADE IT AS LONG, THAT I
MADE IT.
I DIDN'T THINK THAT I COULD GET
EIGHT MINUTES.
I WANTED TO GET OUT OF THE CAR
AS SOON AS I GOT IN IT.
>> YOU MADE IT FOR EIGHT MINUTES
AS YOU POINTED OUT.
AND IT WAS A 93-DEGREE DAY IN
PHOENIX.
AND IT WENT TO DARN NEAR 120
DEGREES IN THE CAR.
WERE YOU JUST TRYING TO TOUGH IT
OUT FOR AS LONG DAUS?
WHAT WAS YOUR MINDSET GOING INTO
IT FOR THE LACK OF A BETTER
QUESTION?
>> I WAS TRYING ON TOUGH IT OUT
FOR AS LONG AS I POSSIBLY COULD.
WHEN I WAS ABLE TO GET OUT OF
THE CAR, IT WAS A SIGH OF
RELIEF.
FOR ME I WAS THINKING ABOUT
THOSE KIDS AND ANIMALS WHO
AREN'T IN THE POSITION LIKE I AM
TO PHYSICALLY OPEN THE DOOR AND
REMOVE THEMSELVES FROM THE CAR.
SO I WAS HAPPY THAT I COULD SHOW
PEOPLE THAT AND I WAS HAPPY THAT
PETA GAVE ME A PLATFORM TO DO
THAT.
>> HOW HAS THIS BEEN RECEIVED?
>> WELL, I'VE BEEN EXTREMELY
SURPRISED.
BY THE FEEDBACK AND THE POSITIVE
RESPONSE I'VE BEEN GETTING.
EVERYONE HAS BEEN TWEETING IT.
POSTING IT ON THEIR TWITTER AND
FACEBOOK.
I'M GRATEFUL THAT THEY USED ME
FOR SUCH A BIG DEAL.
>> I WAS ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE TO
RETWEET AND IT SAY GOOD FOR YOU.
HOW MANY OF RUSS WALKING DOWN
THE STREET AND WE LOOK IN A CAR
AND THERE'S A DOG IN THE BACK
SEAT OF THE CAR.
EVEN WITH THE WINDOW CRACKED.
HOW MUCH MORE BEARABLE WOULD IT
HAVE BEEN IN THE CAR EVEN IF THE
WINDOW WAS CRACKED AN INCH?
>> I DON'T THINKā€ -- IT WOULD
HAVE PROBABLY BEEN THE SAME FOR
ME.
AND I'M A GUY WHO WORKS OUT
OUTSIDE TRAINING PRETTY MUCH
YEAR ROUND.
FOR ME, IT WAS PROBABLY ONE OF
THE MORE TOUGHER THINGS TO DOIES
IN PHYSICALLY FOR ME.
IT WAS ONE OF THOSE THINGS YOU
HAVE TO SIT THROUGH.
IT WAS NOT LIKE FOOTBALL OR
ANYTHING.
ONE OF THOSE THINGS WHERE YOU'RE
TRYING TO GET IT.
YOU HOPE THAT YOU SEND THE RIGHT
MESSAGE TO THE PEOPLE WHO ARE
POSSIBLY WATCHING IT.
>> TYRANN MATHIEU WITH ME ON THE
SHOW.
SO HOW ARE YOU FARING, GETTING
READY FOR THE SEASON?
YOU WERE COMING OFF A KNEE
INJURY LAST YEAR.
HOW ARE YOU FARING COMING INTO
THIS SEASON?
>> WELL, RICH, I'M REALLY
EXCITED.
OBVIOUSLY I'M HAPPY, I'M IN
POSITIVE SPIRITS.
I'M REALLY GLAD TO GIVE MY TEAM
MATES AND THE FANS AND EVERYBODY
IN ARIZONA AND ALL THE NFL
WORLD, REALLY GIVE THEM BEST OF
ME TO SHARE.
SO I'M REAL EXCITED ABOUT THAT.
AND I CAN'T WAIT FOR NEXT WEEK
TO GET HERE.
>> WHERE DO YOU STAND ON THE
ISSUE THAT YOUR FORMER TEAMMATE
ANTONIO CROMARTIE PUT OUT THERE?
WHAT IS THE SENSE OF A DEFENSIVE
COORDINATOR BACK ABOUT WHAT
MAKES A TRUE SHUTDOWN DEFENSIVE
BACK?
DOES THE DEFENSIVE BACK HAVE TO
TRAVEL WITH THE NUMBER ONE
RECEIVER IN YOUR ESTIMATION?
>> TO ME, I DON'T THINK THAT HE
HAS TO.
I THINK THOSE GUYS, SEATTLE HAS
SUCH A GREAT SCHEME.
THAT RICHARD DOESN'T HAVE TO
MOVE.
YOU THINK BH THE PASS RUSHERS.
YOU CAN'T REALLY DO THAT TO
RICHARD.
AND HE'S ONE OF THOSE GUYS, HE'S
BEEN REWARD TREMENDOUSLY.
THE HE IS ONE OF THE TOUGH
QUARTERBACKS.
WHEN IT COMES TO PRODUCTION, I
DON'T THINK THAT YOU HAVE TO
FOLLOW THE NUMBER ONE RECEIVER
TO GET THE PRODUCTION.
GET RESPECT THAT YOU NEED.
>> AND HOW GOOD CAN THE ARIZONA
CARDINALS BE THIS YEAR?
>> I THINK PRETTY GOOD THIS
YEAR.
WE HAVE A HEALTHY TEAM.
I THINK OUR ENTIRE TEAM IS GOING
TO BE HEALTHY.
>> WE'RE EXCITED ABOUT CARSON
COMING BACK.
OUR DEFENSE WILL BE THE SAME.
WE HAVE A FEW PIECES, A FEW
HOLES TO FILL IN.
BUT I THINK FOR THE MOST PART,
WE'LL BE A GET PAYMENT.
CONTENDERS THIS YEAR AND
HOPEFULLY, WE CAN STAY HEALTHY
THROUGHOUT THE SEASON.
AND WE REACH OUR GOALS LATE IN
THE SEASON.
>> HOW IS CARSON LOOKING?
>> HE LOOKS GREAT.
HE ALWAYS DID HAVE A BIG STRONG
ARM.
JUST TO SEE HIM BACK ON HIS
FEET.
ROLLING OUT, MOVING.
PRESSURE AND STILL THROWING IT
DOWN FIELD.
>> THAT WAS POSITIVE FOR US AS A
TEAM THIS YEAR.
>> SO WHO IS THE TEAM TO BEAT IN
YOUR DIVISION?
>> WELL, I'VE NEVER BEEN A FAN
OF DISRESPECTING THE PEOPLE WHO
HAVE EARNED IT.
>> FOR ME IT WOULD HAVE TO BE
SEATTLE.
TWO TIMES IN A ROW.
AND THEY HAVE EVERYTHING THAT WE
WANT.
SO WE'LL HAVE TO GO THROUGH
SEATTLE AGAIN THIS YEAR.
>> AND TYRANN, WHEN YOU CAME OUT
TO THE NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE
AND WE WERE AT THE COMBINE AND
WE WERE TALKING ABOUT YOU AND
WHAT WAS GOING ON WITH YOU AT
THE CAMPUS OF LSU AND A LOT OF
PEOPLE WONDERING HOW YOU WOULD
BE AFFECTED BY THE TRAPPINGS OF
PROFESSIONAL FOOTBALL LIFE WITH
A LOT OF DOWN TIME.
HOW HAVE YOU BEEN ABLE TO TURN
THINGS AROUND THE WAY THAT YOU
HAVE?
FOR ME, WHEN I WAS AT LSU, I WAS
SO YOUNG AND IMMATURE AND
SELFISH.
EVERYTHING HAS TO GO YOUR WAY.
SO NOW FOR ME, I'M NOT DOING
THIS FOR ME.
IT IS NOT ABOUT TYRANN MATHIEU.
IT IS MY CHILDREN, I SHOULD HOLD
MYSELF ACCOUNTABLE AS A
PROFESSIONAL ATHLETE AND AS
SOMEONE OF A STAR.
YOU KNOW?
>> AND WHO HAVE YOU BEEN RELYING
ON?
WALK ME THROUGH YOUR SAFETY NET.
WHO HAS BEEN PART OF TEAM
TYRANN?
>> WELL, MY AGENT, PATRICK,
LARRY FITZGERALD.
DARNELL, ALL THESE GUYS ARE
PEOPLE THAT I CAN LEAN ON.
PEOPLE THAT CAN CALL ME ANY TIME
OF THE DAY AND I'LL ANSWER.
IT IS REALLY ABOUT ME BEING
ACCOUNTABLE AND RESPONSIBLE FOR
MY ACTIONS AND THAT IT DOESN'T
AFFECT THE PEEL AROUND ME.
>> WHAT WAS THE WAKE-UP CALL?
WHAT WAS THE ACTUAL LAST WAKE-UP
CALL FOR YOU TO HAVE THIS
REALIZATION THAT THIS IS THE WAY
YOU NEEDED TO CONDUCT YOURSELF?
>> WELL, I'VE REACHED STARDOM SO
FAST.
YOU THINK YOU'RE ON TOP OF THE
WORLD AND THEN THE RUG YOU'RE
STANDING ON IS TAKEN FROM UNDER
YOUR FEET.
FOR ME GOING FORWARD, IT IS
ABOUT DOING THE RIGHT THING.
BEING WHERE I'M SUPPOSED TO BE.
I TRY TO KEEP THAT IN
PERSPECTIVE.
KEEP IT IN MIND.
AND I'VE REALLY BEEN FORTUNATE.
I'VE SEEN THINGS SO EARLY ON IN
MY FOOTBALL CAREER IN COLLEGE.
AND I WAS ABLE TO GET IT BEFORE
I GOT TO THE NFL.
AND I WAS REAL FORTUNATE FOR
THAT.
HAD I NEEDED THE NFL WITHOUT ANY
NEGATIVE EXPERIENCES, MAYBE MY
NFL CAREER WOULDN'T BE WHAT I
THOUGHT IT WAS GOING TO BE.
OR MAYBE I WONDERFUL BE GOING TO
THE NFL OR MAY BE I WOULDN'T GO
GOING INTO MY THIRD YEAR.
>> SO YOU HAVE DOGS?
PET IN YOUR HOUSE IN.
>> I HAVE A YORKY.
A REALLY SMALL DOG AND HIS NAME
IS KING.
>> KING YORKIE?
>> HIS NAME IS KING AND HE'S A
YORKIE.
>> ALL RIGHT.
HOW OLD IS KING?
>> KING WILL BE 2 AUGUST 1st.
>> I LIKE IT.
A YORKIE.
A YORKIE GUY.
I WOULDN'T HAVE PUT YOU IN A
YORKIE BUT GOOD FOR YOU.
>> MOST PEOPLE SEE ME AND THEY
THINK OF A PIT BULL.
NO, A YORKIE.
>> I THINK OF YOU LIKE A LAB
GUY.
A RETRIEVER GUY.
A BIG DOG GUY.
I WON'T PAINT ALL FOOTBALL
PLAYERS HAVE TO HAVE DOGS WITH A
SNARL TO THEM OR THAT
REPUTATION.
BUT YORKIE.
THAT'S SOMETHING.
I LIKE IT.
KING THE YORKIE.
GOOD FOR YOU.
AND HOPEFULLY YOU RESCUED KING.
>> DID YOU RESCUE HIM?
>> NO.
I DID NOT RESCUE HIM.
>> WE'LL WORK ONLY.
IN THE MEANTIME, YOU'RE DOING
SOME GREAT WORK.
THANK YOU FOR CALLING IN.
AND WELL DONE.
