Arizona Cardinals safety Tyrann Mathieu joined the show to talk about his hot start and more. Here are some of his comments:

— Matthieu looked back at his issues at LSU: “I wasn’t mature enough. I couldn’t grasp the concept I was interviewing to be a proferssiona. At a young age, I got distracted easily. That was something I struggled with.”

— On LSU running back Leonard Fournette: “He’s so much more mature than me. Just his way of thinking. He’s so humble. He’s been a superstar since he was a frershman in high school. He really understands how this thing works.”

— On his friends in college: “Back then I has all Yes men. I had no one ot tell me no. I had no really good friends. None of those guys made it their responsibility … and they shouldn’t have … they never pointed me in the right direction. I was the guy in the charge and I had no one to answer to.”

— Matthieu likes the nickname Honey Badger: “They have million of kids love me for being the Honey Badger. When I came into the Draft, I didn’t want people to get Tyrann Mathhieu confused with the Honey Badger. When I was at LSU Honey Badger was my identity. I didn’t want people to remember Tyrann as the Honey Badger at LSU.”
