#991 – Tyson Bagent | Greatness on the rise – Chicago Bears Quarterback – NFL

Sevan Matossian (00:00):

You hear me good?

Tyson Bagent (00:02):

Yeah, I hear you. Perfect.

Sevan Matossian (00:03):

Can you hear me? Oh, bam. Yeah. So good. Sweet. Hey, this morning you like, oh shit, why did I agree to the podcast?

Tyson Bagent (00:13):

Nah, I’m a couple hours behind, so I still got this, so it’s all good.

Sevan Matossian (00:18):

Are you in your hotel room, Tyson?

Tyson Bagent (00:20):

Yeah, we flew back right after the game, and so we got back to Chicago around midnight.

Sevan Matossian (00:31):

Wow. Wow. And that would be typical. That’s just the way the whole season will work whenever the team’s done. You guys don’t stay

Tyson Bagent (00:39):

Night in the same? I think so. Yeah, I think so. I think so.

Sevan Matossian (00:44):

And you don’t go back to your house, you stay with the team?

Tyson Bagent (00:49):

What do you mean?

Sevan Matossian (00:51):

So the season, I guess that’s how dumb that question is. So the season started, you now, wherever you are right now, is this where you live? Are you in a hotel?

Tyson Bagent (01:00):

No, I’m still just living in a hotel. So all the cuts and stuff are made next week. So people don’t usually get us a place until after they figure out that they’re not getting cut.

Sevan Matossian (01:12):

Okay. You don’t want to get too carried away.

Tyson Bagent (01:15):

Yeah, exactly.

Sevan Matossian (01:16):

Hey, good morning, Caleb Tyson. Bet. This is off the E S P N website. Tyson bet. The NCAA’s all-time passing touchdown leader from division two Shepherd University looked sharp against the Colts by orchestrating a 17 play 92 yard touchdown drive, which he capped off with a two yard run into the end zone. Dude, that was nuts.

Tyson Bagent (01:47):

Yeah, I was like, during the whole drive, I’m like looking around like, holy shit, it’s just really happening. This is insane. The stadium itself is pretty insane. It’s a dome and I’ve never played in a dome before and it was the same place that the combine was at, but still just seeing all those people in there, and I knew I had a lot of family there too, which was pretty cool. But yeah, that whole thing was pretty amazing.

Sevan Matossian (02:16):

How high, do you know how high the dome is above your head?

Tyson Bagent (02:21):

I have no clue. I know that you couldn’t kick or throw a ball that high, you not even close.

Sevan Matossian (02:28):

Okay. They make sure of that. Yeah. I’m glad you said that because that’s why I was flirting with asking that dumb question. Just yeah,

Tyson Bagent (02:37):

I was looking up like, man, I wonder. But as soon as I looked up, I was like, yeah, no, can’t make it up there

Sevan Matossian (02:43):

Crazy. Hey, there’s no sign of that. When I watch you play of you being in disbelief the whole time, you look so comfortable out there. Even your gestures you’re doing with your hands, the way your feet move, even when the plays are done and you’re going back to the huddle, everything you look, I don’t look at that and be like, oh, he’s new there. You know what I mean? It totally looked like you’ve done, I guess you have done it 10 million times.

Tyson Bagent (03:13):

Yeah, that’s kind of what I was saying to somebody had a similar question yesterday, but I was just telling him that luckily enough I was able to play a lot of football in college more so than probably anybody ever. And also just with how crazy the play calling system is and how just intricate the calls are. As soon as the play is over, I’m listening super closely ready to get this long ass play so that we can keep sustaining the drive. And also just so we don’t get a delay a game. I don’t think I was ever worried about a delay a game in college running out of time before you run the play. But now I just find myself every play, just seeing where that clock is at and just making sure that I can snap the ball before it runs out.

Sevan Matossian (04:07):

And then so when you score, there’s not, I guess the way you’re describing this is that not only is it a relief that you scored, but that you’re done for a second. You get a second to go walk over to the sidelines and not be like, oh shit, there’s a play coming in.

Tyson Bagent (04:23):

Yeah, yeah, exactly. Exactly. On the field, you’re pretty, you’re just pretty locked in. At least, least quarterback I feel like should be just because of the mental load of everything. But after getting in the end zone, however you get it done, just coming to the sideline, that handful of minutes of just getting loved on and not having to worry about the next play, it’s pretty sweet.

Sevan Matossian (04:49):

This is an interesting comment here from turntable, man. I don’t want to get ahead of myself, but no one could have predicted Tyson’s success so far. If anyone did, they must be a genius. There was one person that you and I know who calls me and has told me it was going to play out God almost exactly like this. That guy knew the whole time. It’s crazy.

Tyson Bagent (05:15):

Yeah, no, it is pretty wild. I think about that. I think about that a lot and it’s this other little weird little story I’ve been thinking about a lot. So during Covid, right? During Covid, we weren’t doing anything. Only thing that was happening was me. My dad was working out, me and my siblings and maybe a couple of my buddies just every day at 10:00 AM we would just go to the crossroad gym and just do something terrible. And one day after that we had stopped to get gas at sheets and we were in there, I guess looking around at stuff. I don’t know what exactly we were doing, but this lady came in and I guess this was some kind of psychic lady in a sense. She could sense things or whatever. And she had used to go to church and be friends with Steph Curry’s parents. And my dad knew her somehow some way. I don’t remember the lady’s name.

Sevan Matossian (06:08):

Your dad knows everybody.

Tyson Bagent (06:09):

Yeah. So my dad said she looked at her and she was like, she had glanced at me. She was like, oh, who’s that? Blah, blah, blah. And I’m not there, but she was like, I haven’t seen someone radiate energy like that since I saw little baby Steph Curry.

Sevan Matossian (06:28):

That’s crazy. And

Sevan Matossian (06:31):

That stuck when she said that, that stuck. It’s

Tyson Bagent (06:33):

Just something that I think about whenever some crazy shit happens in my life, I’m like, damn, maybe this lady actually does know some stuff. And so that’s just one of the things I was thinking about last night just after the big drive and phone blowing up family and friends hit me up. I’m like, man, who would’ve ever really thought that this would be happening except for maybe my dad and that lady from Sheets? That’s crazy.

Sevan Matossian (07:02):

Hey, I want to be really delicate. I don’t want to lead you down any questioning that at any point just say stop. But I got questions.

Tyson Bagent (07:11):

Oh yeah, I got you. Yeah,

Sevan Matossian (07:12):

You’re good. You just give me the Heisman if it gets weird. Okay, here’s the question. If they didn’t want you on the team, so they have four quarterbacks, right? And what I’m learning about football is I immersed myself in it is the conventional wisdom is they take three at some point, there’ll only be three. I’m assuming that if they didn’t even want you, that they wouldn’t be playing you. I mean, they’re giving you all this playtime. So they’re either trying to set you up for success or set you up for failure, but someone’s obviously watching you. And then the question on top of that is how could you have done any better?

Tyson Bagent (07:53):

That’s the main thing that I’ve been kind of focused on. I mean, there’s a lot of people like, man, what do you think they’re going to do? What’s going to happen? Are they going to keep four? Are they going to keep three? What are they going to do with you other, rather than thinking, trying to come up with a response to that, I have absolutely no clue because you do

Sevan Matossian (08:16):

Have no clue. You haven’t been like, oh, there’s extra shirts there, they’re going to keep me. Or Oh shit, they’ve gotten rid of my shirts, I’m gone.

Tyson Bagent (08:24):

Kind of like you said, just from a baseline standpoint, I’m like, you know what? These guys really have to trust whoever they put in the game. So if they’re putting you in the game, I mean if they thought that you were going to go out there and make their organization or their coaching look just absolutely insane and bad, I’m pretty sure that they wouldn’t put you in the game. And I know that I’ve been working really hard on the mental aspect just to be able to call the plays, run the plays and be effective in that sense. But from a logistics standpoint, what they’re going to do going into the season, I really don’t have any clue. All I know is what you were saying, when I do get an opportunity to just absolutely make the most of it, to the point that if it were to go south that I could be comfortable in knowing that I kind of did everything I was supposed to and took advantage of all my opportunities.

Sevan Matossian (09:24):

I didn’t even think about that. So when you go out there, I always just think of it as the wide receiver. And you must, or whoever catches the ball, you and him must have a special relationship because if he drops passes, you look bad. And if you throw bad passes, he looks bad. But I didn’t even think about what you’re introducing is just like the coaches don’t want to look bad either. They don’t want to put on So you’re representing all sorts of people.

Tyson Bagent (09:52):

Yeah, exactly. Yeah. Everybody’s name and their brand is on the line every day, especially in the N F L. Really all it is is a one day contract every day, one day every day they give you another opportunity and they could also terminated any day as well. So you really got to be locked in, not just players either coaching support staff, everybody. If you start messing up, I mean there’s a million people knocking at the door waiting for an opportunity to be in the N F L one way or another. So they’ll just give that next person the opportunity.

Sevan Matossian (10:30):

There’s that F one show on Netflix, and I’ve only watched episode one, season one. It was from five years ago and I watched it a couple weeks ago. And in that first episode, the team, I think it’s the Ferrari team, I can’t remember, but one of the teams has two cars in both times. A guy doesn’t tighten the bolts down on one of the tires in the car and it ends the race for them. It’s like $190 million race car team. One dinging dong doesn’t tighten the bolts and it’s over for them twice.

Tyson Bagent (11:03):

Something just so tiny as that. And it’s at this, since I’ve been practicing with the Bears and in the N F L at Shepherd, we didn’t really have anything compared to what we have now. We literally had nothing here in Chicago. In practice, there’s support staff that are strictly in charge of setting up the drills for the quarterbacks or the drills for the quarterbacks and receivers, or even there’s a trainer that’s specifically her job is to follow around just the quarterbacks and give them water throughout practice. So little things like that where each position group has got a trainer that’s giving them water and everybody’s got a support staff that is helping them set up just that position group’s drill for that day. And you can see that sometimes when those support staff people mess up, people are not very kind and understanding about that at all. So just seeing how on them they are, I could easily see where if they would consistently be messing that up, they’d be like, yo, we got to get so-and-so out of here. He is like, we’re missing 10 minutes of drill work just because he doesn’t know what the freak he’s doing. Once we get out there, we can’t have that. So every position, it’s kind of like a high intensity, stressful environment for everybody in the building.

Sevan Matossian (12:29):

And it sounds like it’s a well-oiled machine.

Tyson Bagent (12:32):

Oh yeah, they’re on it. Yeah, they’re on it. They’re on it.

Sevan Matossian (12:38):

Can we bring up, when you went into the end zone and I just fire a bunch of naive questions at you. Okay. So can you tell me what was that the play?

Tyson Bagent (12:48):

No, it was a pass play and really I should have thrown a ball to the running back, but I kind of bobbled the snap when I caught it, so I got off of him a little bit too quickly, but then everybody else was covered, so then I just ran into Enzo

Sevan Matossian (13:04):

And Okay, so wow, I don’t see ball pass. Okay, so thank you for stopping it, Caleb. Okay, so that’s called the shotgun snap?

Tyson Bagent (13:13):


Sevan Matossian (13:14):

And why do you do that? Because you’re so cramped up in the end zone and there’s just not a lot of room, so you make more room by taking a longer snap. What’s the reasoning?

Tyson Bagent (13:21):

Yeah, I mean, I think there’s a little bit of merit in going in the, there’s meritan going under center and in the gun. In the gun. I mean, if you’re going to pass the ball, I mean really, I feel like that’s why a lot of teams operate in the gun is just because the quarterback can catch the ball and have space away from the defensive line so he can see a little bit better. But I mean also for the run game, if we were to hand the ball off on this play, the runback would have more time to see where the things are developing and be able to pick the hole and run a little bit more effective as well.

Sevan Matossian (13:59):

And that’s the running back to your right, right there with his hands on his knees? Yep. Knees. Okay then so who are you supposed to throw it to?

Tyson Bagent (14:07):

So he’s my first read and he goes out into the flat and he’s my first read. So when I bobbled the snap, like I said, I just got off of him too quick, but he was open. I should have thrown the ball to him.

Sevan Matossian (14:22):

He was, could you play a little bit more Caleb? And then somewhere you decide you see something and then, okay, so that guy’s going that way and you’re supposed to throw it to him and how come there’s no one already covering him? Oh yeah, he is.

Tyson Bagent (14:36):

Yeah. Yeah, they messed up. Yeah, they messed up. So after I got off him, I’m starting to look towards the middle of the field. So then out of my peripheral I can see this defensive lineman looping around to my backside. So then I stepped, and once I stepped up, I just saw an alley. So I know that this defender here on the bottom of the screen, right in the end zone, I knew that our guy is running towards him, so he’s either got to run to tackle me and I can throw it to him, or he is going to stay on him and I can just run into the end zone.

Sevan Matossian (15:06):

Okay. So until you cross that black line, you still have the option to throw. He knows that you know that. Okay. Because thinking that guy, so that guy’s got a lot to think about because you’re 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, you’re nine yards away from the end zone. He’s sitting on the line, you would think he could catch you, but he knows that you have the option still to throw, so he can’t commit to you.

Tyson Bagent (15:28):

Yeah, he really can’t be right in this situation.

Sevan Matossian (15:33):

And when do you know that you’re not going to throw it?

Tyson Bagent (15:38):

As soon as he makes contact with the receiver at all. As soon as he’s bothered with him in any way, shape, or form, I know that I can at least, even if I get hit, get in the end zone,

Sevan Matossian (15:51):

Your momentum is going to carry you in. And as I ask you these questions and you answer them, are you hearing the answers for the first time? Or actually is this stuff you talk about, do you know that in high school or in college somewhere? It’s like, hey, soon as you see the guy touch the receiver, you know, have two steps or whatever.

Tyson Bagent (16:09):

Nah, it’s just kind of doing your own math in your head. And also just like I said before, playing so much football in college that literally, literally last football season my senior year, I did this exact same play, literally the exact same play where we were on the goal line, I was looking right, stepped up, ran left, and die and dove in end zone. So just kind of repetition, being the mother of all learners and just understanding the game and how things flow.

Sevan Matossian (16:49):

It’s crazy. Yeah. And when I hear you talk, it sounds that there’s also a ton of pattern recognition. You’re a pattern guy.

Tyson Bagent (16:58):

Yeah, that’s exactly what it is. That’s a lot of really what it is. I feel like that’s really how I have any successes, not any success, but a lot of my success comes from just pattern recognition, just understanding what somebody has to do if they’re in a certain spot.

Sevan Matossian (17:16):

How many of those guys out there are seriously vying for a job like you? Are there any guys out there where pretty much they’re going to play next year? For sure. A hundred percent.

Tyson Bagent (17:27):

Yeah. A lot of those guys. I went in second yesterday, so those are the second string guys. So a lot of those guys have played years in the league and are pretty good. The running back’s a rookie and he’s doing really well. He’s a rookie like me though, from the University of Texas, but everybody else in there has been in the league for at least a couple of years,

Sevan Matossian (17:51):

And so the other rookies want the ball so that they can showcase their talents too. Right. He’s chomping at the bit to get his hands on it.

Tyson Bagent (17:59):

Yeah, I think everybody’s looking to do good, especially get the ball in the preseason.

Sevan Matossian (18:07):

And then after you go into the end zone, are you just on autopilot? Is that just like you throw the ball on the ground, the team comes over, everyone’s loving on you? Is that just surreal right here? Like this?

Tyson Bagent (18:22):

Yeah, the celebrating part. Yeah, when the guys come up and they’re dapping you up and everything, that’s kind of just unspoken rule that’s going to happen. So I always loved that, but then I was like, man, now you’re in the N F L, you don’t get penalized for celebrating. I’m about to just spike the ball real quick. So then I just

Sevan Matossian (18:42):


Tyson Bagent (18:43):

Did it. You

Sevan Matossian (18:44):

Do get in trouble in college if you do that. Let off a

Tyson Bagent (18:47):

Pain. Yeah. College really, you’re not allowed to excessively celebrate. You’re not allowed to have a celebration. You can love on your teammates like that, but you can’t dance or spike the ball or do anything crazy

Sevan Matossian (19:03):

If, wow, look at one guy, did you see all that hair that one guy had coming out of his helmet? That can’t be good. Go back a little bit. Look at that guy on the right. Yeah.

Tyson Bagent (19:12):

Oh, I know. Yeah, I know that guy. I think that looks cool.

Sevan Matossian (19:16):


Tyson Bagent (19:17):

But if he was playing offense, that’d be scary just because you’re allowed, if you have hair like that, you’re allowed to grab it and use it to tackle him, but he plays defense. You are? Yeah. It’s not against the rules.

Sevan Matossian (19:30):

Oh my God, that’s awesome. That’s crazy,

Tyson Bagent (19:32):


Sevan Matossian (19:32):

That’s crazy. I like football even more now. That’s great.

Tyson Bagent (19:35):

Yeah, that dude’s got good hair. But yeah, he’s playing defense, so he doesn’t really have to worry about that as much.

Sevan Matossian (19:48):

Did the game go as planned, even meaning how much you got to play before the game started? Were you like, okay, I want to play this much and when I do play I want to perform like this? Did it go as planned or as you would?

Tyson Bagent (20:02):

I think for when I was in, it went how I would want it to go. Yes, but I don’t really ever, I know of the order that the quarterbacks are going to go in before the game, but I don’t know how much I’m going to play, so I just, yeah. So I just try to handle when they do put me in kind of like I said before, to the best of my ability.

Sevan Matossian (20:24):

Would they ever pull you out during a drive in the middle of a drive?

Tyson Bagent (20:28):

I don’t think, no. They usually let you get there. They’ll usually be like, Hey, you got two more or this is your last drive or something in that. Something in that realm.

Sevan Matossian (20:39):

And did you finish the game?

Tyson Bagent (20:42):

No, I didn’t. I came, Nathan went in after me.

Sevan Matossian (20:48):

On your Instagram, the only mention you have of the game is you celebrating one of the other quarterback’s touchdown passes. You haven’t put anything up of your stuff, but you’re celebrating the other guy in your story. Isn’t this your competitive, I mean, I know he’s on your team, but you guys are going for the same job, right?

Tyson Bagent (21:08):

Yeah, yeah. Technically. Yes.

Sevan Matossian (21:11):

So why put up his amazing past and not, you had a ton of amazing things that happened yesterday.

Tyson Bagent (21:19):

Yeah, I thought I was, everything I was seeing on my Instagram for the time I was on there was that. So I saw that video a lot of times. But really, I mean, that guy has helped me so much with just helping me learn the offense and everything. And I really like him a lot. So I was hype for him that he threw, I mean, he threw a great pass right there, so I thought it was a pretty sick little angle that they got of it. So that’s all. It’s it’s, I really do like that guy though. He took me to the movies a couple weeks ago. He answers any questions that I have, things that are going on, whether that be like I’m going to my first away game, Hey man, what exactly are we about to do? What’s this going to look like? And he’s just been filling me in and helping me out. But that’s all the quarterbacks in the room really. So he’s been pretty sweet.

Sevan Matossian (22:15):

Does your agent or your dad or anyone be like, Hey, what are you doing promoting that guy?

Tyson Bagent (22:20):

Nah, nah. Even if they thought that. I don’t think anybody wants to be weird enough to say something like that.

Sevan Matossian (22:27):

Only me. Only me. Yeah. Well it’s good. Hey, I think it speaks volumes to your character. I mean, just crazy. I appreciate that. Yeah. Crazy Dusty Willard. Hey Tyson, say hello to Darby in the video office for me.

Tyson Bagent (22:40):

Oh, I got you. I will.

Sevan Matossian (22:43):

Do you know the people in the video office?

Tyson Bagent (22:45):

Yeah, I know Darby. I know who Darby is. Yeah,

Sevan Matossian (22:48):

No kidding.

Tyson Bagent (22:49):


Sevan Matossian (22:50):

Wow. Small world. Look at Dusty trying to show off someone over there at the Bears.

Tyson Bagent (22:54):

Yeah. What a guy. 4 99.

Sevan Matossian (22:59):

Do you play next week?

Tyson Bagent (23:02):

Yeah, we play at home against the bills, Buffalo bills.

Sevan Matossian (23:07):

And will there be cuts before the game?

Tyson Bagent (23:10):

Nah, but the two days right after the game.

Sevan Matossian (23:14):


Tyson Bagent (23:15):

They’re going to cut it from 90 to 53.

Sevan Matossian (23:25):

So either way it’ll be emotional for you. They’ll be friends of yours. Either you’ll be cut or friends of yours will be cut either way. It’s not fun. Yeah.

Tyson Bagent (23:32):

And it’s already you’ve people, I’ve already gotten a taste of people getting cut when I showed up my locker room neighbors, my locker were not who they are now. So it’s like little things like that where you just, one day a guy from the staff is just in somebody’s locker with a big cardboard box packing his stuff up, and then the very next day, or even that same day, you’ll see a completely new person in that same locker. So getting an idea of being able to see that has been pretty surreal and pretty crazy. But I guess it’s just, it’s not that it’s unknown. I knew that things like that were going to happen.

Sevan Matossian (24:20):

Ken Walter, it’s a team sport. Alright. If you say so. Dan Tyson’s, the goodest dude out there, truly someone to look up to and strive to be similar to.

Tyson Bagent (24:31):


Sevan Matossian (24:33):

A friend of mine went to Post Malone concert the other night as a guest, a post Malone, and he’s in the back with all the famous people and he said some people are just so fricking cool and then other people are too cool for school. I’m guessing that. Oh yeah, there he is. There’s my buddy.

Tyson Bagent (24:54):

Oh, Dave went. That’s cool.

Sevan Matossian (24:56):

Yeah, right.

Tyson Bagent (24:57):

That’s awesome.

Sevan Matossian (24:58):

Yeah, they’re gun buddies.

Tyson Bagent (25:00):


Sevan Matossian (25:04):

The coolest thing was is he told me he got to hang with post Malone’s dad.

Tyson Bagent (25:08):

Really? Yeah. What did he say that was like, I don’t, he

Sevan Matossian (25:10):

Said his dad’s cool as shit. He said his dad’s so cool. He said he just basically hung with his dad most of the time. He said his dad was so cool.

Tyson Bagent (25:17):

That’s awesome.

Sevan Matossian (25:23):

In the locker room or on the team, I’m guessing that that’s not what you want to be. You don’t want to be the guy who’s too cool for school, right? Because I’m guessing that the coaches and stuff are speaking of team want it to be a team.

Tyson Bagent (25:36):

Yeah, exactly. Yeah. It’s weird because they want it to be the same comradery and togetherness as any other team. That’s what the coaches are striving for. They’re saying all the same motivational things that a lot of the other coaches that I’ve grown up say. But now you’re telling in a couple particular situations, you’re telling a dude who’s already got enough money that he doesn’t need to do anything for the rest of his life. And you’re telling him to just go out, sacrifice his body for the team and do this and do that. And you can see that for some people. They’re just like, man, come on man. I’m not trying to do that.


And you can see that. And really, I mean, you can look at it. I look at it in two ways. I look like, man, I would hate to be that guy’s wife or kid or something like that. You kind of just feel like that could just be a domino effect and they could just be oozing that shit to their family, which is never good. But then it is another thing. It’s like, man, he does have a whole lot of money. He probably did have to do all those crazy hard things at one point, but I just look at it also like, man, I just don’t ever want that to be me. I don’t care how much money I make, I just want to work as hard as I can, continue to shoulder to stone and just freaking just go as hard as I can all the time just because of what I know that that’ll do for my family and everything. Even if I get tired of it, at least just do it for my family.

Sevan Matossian (27:15):

Are you enjoying all this? Yeah,

Tyson Bagent (27:18):

It’s been super rewarding. So it’s been great.

Sevan Matossian (27:23):

I mean, from where I see from my little house in Santa Cruz, California, it looks like you’re having a blast.

Tyson Bagent (27:30):

Yeah, it’s been great. I mean, I’m also one of those zoos too. A lot of the guys in rookies, a lot of the rookies that are here also are coming from really big schools that there’s some similarities between the facilities here and the facilities where they came from. For me, this is a whole new universe, so I’m really, every day, no matter what it is, walkthrough, lifting, pre-game, game day practice, I’m looking around like, wow, this is insane.
