And what it was drafted by the patriots in the yes seventy -- overall the first round of the 1999 draft. Played for the patriots played for the jets played a line a couple of Super Bowl here 2001 and 2003. Into now of course those -- find work on a guest pianist or NFL analyst -- what he joins us on the AT&T hotline. AT&T four GL TT good morning Dana it's John and Jerry in Boston again how aria. There you go door don't well very well I quick overview here on the yep patriots is they start to ramp up their campus easy schedule. A great quarterback. A great coach maybe just maybe an improved defense. From where you sit Damien Woody do they look like the iron of the AFC again this year. It sort of looked like it you know you look at you know we'd look at everything like you just wrote all. They're different is they're ordered to position is no question about it you have alternate. All will be even more dynamic now. You know couple got outside victory second. You know structured and I'll stop the numbers. All in and you obviously got to try to do what will -- work and you'll feel the beat by the city before the exit. They use a whole entire draft and decency here. Are they improve their orders improved -- -- -- this season's already already really really good will be better this year. All they might be request they dispute that figure this year. Any anything threat in the division that you see -- -- -- -- They will walk to the division title and into the playoffs and the only question will be that first rounder they get a budget the play at home. Or are from you know the -- this is national slowly are these are never say they'll wall you know. Just never know what happened sixteen game schedule what out of -- deficit deal to -- some division all off toward true. Are opting dramatically. What are still in the period so that a request that it. What would have it Brady's healthy and no one else can go wrong amana if Brady's healthy don't they win twelve. Thirteen. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- We appreciate -- you know relatively healthy. On -- actually -- -- their models should be you know in the loopholes in the works no women industries is here. What will Brandon Lloyd do for Tom Brady's offense in his ability to move the the football. All my -- treat people will be tremendous -- find this. You know -- -- had a up -- like this and learned more to come up with a -- -- -- Randy -- buddy he's definitely maker artist is somebody who's stressed appeal outside the numbers could you you know you. Wasilla told Brooke in the trick -- the one game. Belt although with the sheriff's. And what else. -- export to look at those who feel the because the trees and have -- outside threat outside the numbers and then you have to go out at a lower order Eagles got out of outside the numbers you can second read their orders field. Well she's become more on that I'll go out and would welcome it. They gronkowski and Hernandez. It makes their job like he's in the world in between. You know the patriot way as well as anyone the Belichick way. Chad Johnson says that's why he was unproductive because they put the clamps on him and wouldn't let. Oh -- the old show. Is -- and obviously that's silly right -- I mean you can't. It's you can't blame Belichick in the patriot wave because she didn't know the playbook. Yeah I think yeah on the main goal -- actually the -- couldn't what good is you don't -- in order. All of don't have to -- more complete book of the induction. You know precious you know for the middle type stuff you know on their product -- we had anything to do -- You know alert you on that which you know below in the playbook auditioning that this is bicoastal as all. Or what what is your take on Rob Gronkowski we were told at some point that the patriots and -- it down. He didn't get the memo many see you so are many on -- -- on the cover and now the story this week is that his family is in talks. With the William -- -- top talent agency. To develop a TV show. Around his -- safe. Adam Arkin way to logic about -- will be -- -- and. Well we'll have to be on likes the Mac market in that arena where it's close. Look. At what point will how will this work. We'll Belichick just Libyan note in his locker said Belichick wants the CU and he goes to see him all the position coach handle it will the captaincy at all if they want him to lay off. All the extracurricular stuff. How will they get their message through. -- what America vocal group. What Carl can build the brand forms -- and in the -- -- -- so productive -- -- they say they're good. Although I prefer to patent it could continue to be productive like views. -- what we can. What he's brought to safety gaping continued to beat the they have thirty years. But you can do is do they all -- saying look it's not a lot of film. As it also actually go to come down to it big problem -- production and production although. In the tricky pebble ballot or what looked. You know you'll play -- -- promote global feel and that he is you don't directly. Sure it is shouldn't go to war at all. You know what when you were here did that ever happened was there anyone that was just cold and not. Hey you know with the program and and coach called the men and at a at a talk with -- Never doubted our number I mean god so so you don't focus you thought god you didn't know. Inherit the -- you got to understand where what I outwardly with. There -- -- what are you know all the social media all this opportunity. Really good but it wasn't really very -- trust the different animal nowadays shuttle. You know what I'll -- actually was it about blocked it focused. Should -- right now. They -- do you think the the co existence -- the attempt to co exist between Tebow and Sanchez might be a recipe for disaster for the jets. Only essential -- -- the -- NSA to look at -- there -- -- you know it is if people suppliers. Circular quarterback. Being announced on. They include -- well. With legitimate -- that's all the -- options such evil Communist -- quarterbacks so. It certainly does well if you go transport and play well. The war being able want to bulk you know people waited and people credit from the let me -- not you don't know win in. And you know that best in the. But I wouldn't think it would take two or three bad performances in two or three bad losses created by Sanchez for the jets for this to happen I mean I think he's like got a bad Hathaway two interceptions and down. Seventy nothing at the half when the fans start chatting Tebow on the second half of that stadium. Obtain credit that it could be that that's it would you know I -- -- -- -- -- real does that say could relive their. When football game and to get completely wanna go Arnold -- speed of -- you know -- yanked him. Hey there's after the -- a bad period a bad effort like that are are still they built that they're true. Now this sport and you know -- didn't lose a cult okay you know going a little district shall play there because you don't change it up and throw keyboard -- you you can. You know ignite ovals or insulting to really get things turned around battlefield. She bad halfway in the you know to warn that switched. Now as as a player and you you players. Be honest with -- -- you players don't really respect Tebow as a player do you. And look what we do we do our you know I have to say that we a little football player quarterback. -- But -- -- know what the numbers. The -- say no. You know obviously look at the completion can no longer boat record -- you do not vote quarterback out there but you know -- cobalt. And that due respect -- that met. Do you think we'll see some unconventional like and we know about the wildcat but like returning punts returning kicks. I know in the backfield something unusual. Who nobody got in the short actors here are old arcade scene for our country with strategic -- now. I don't -- foresee that could. You know can people not animals we for the guy that -- -- -- that you -- big strong physical pure. What you. The -- normal people. More people get to. You know -- would be returning problem -- that won't happen bush you know what they might do -- -- actually. -- you know when it was sort it out well in the field wall video that extra option that could happen but. Articulate well hopefully it will all play five different ways. He -- you can feel. How big is the obstacle in front of Drew Brees and the saints without their head coach in place this year. But this huge I think is huge also -- -- people you know. It's one thing you know it's great to have extra -- quarterback -- have a quarterback like -- -- what. I think what people. Were people getting news how critical -- -- -- prison bobbled. Or that you'll help little -- coaching the National Football League. And we don't have the Pebble Beach is at the car. It is it tripled and it makes everything better what ordinarily put more more strewn all coordinate these for the quarter. You don't you don't think they're losing their you know that they're okay coached. You know Ed good treatment for -- don't know -- importantly -- hot tub and she was when will they deal with this year. They would you send your kid and you that you got a bunch of kids would you send your boys to Penn State. The play for Penn State. You don't -- outlook. I wore a -- because you know the little Florida the great got. He believes in the right in all. Is he believes the right thing is that the people all the people there would bear. -- augment those people go. The local -- you don't believe me personally you personally are -- With our troops would kill line. Is simple when you -- -- -- I wouldn't have it all. You do when their personal. Only if they couldn't get in the BC -- Well of course -- the old little you already know day. -- -- -- -- David good -- a football season -- we'll talk it down the road a friend Damien Woody.
