A huge football our Gloria. Every single Friday patriots Friday must -- not to three point seven. WEEI. Kick it off with a guy Peter case. NBC Sports Illustrated joins us on the AT&T hotline AT&T forgy LT -- With speeds up to ten times faster than three GT AT&T. Rethink possible. Peter reject get everything you do with Sports Illustrated including your picks and we see here today Seahawks. Over the patriots this weekend give us your thoughts on why like the hawks that little bit of an upset here on Sunday. Well. You know I think the biggest factory and going in early on is. Whether. Or eat -- hate. The crowd. I that he didn't take -- speed of the Seattle the sense out of -- something that Aaron Rodgers couldn't do early on. I'll bet after this game. If the year. One of the beat people covering the game in Seattle one of the questions like that they'll. -- after the game. Whether they win or lose. How much did that in order the Packers. He bought in the city particularly the first half and how much of an impact it has cap on what -- -- Get think that that's the last time that the Seahawks played all of it was Monday night huge marquee game for the Seahawks. And you know they ended up totally means that -- each -- from the first. And the way I looked at this team. Is that I think it's going to be the same thing I think she talks are going to try to use. The fact that. My guess is patriot you're gonna have to go silent snap out. For a lot of this game. Crowd will be in the early. And I think the way the patriots will try to neutralize that is keeping substitutions are -- If they knew that then it'd be an interest in Chessman. How much or Bruce Irvin. You know the very talented has virtually rookie. You know who. You know is not playing a lot of rundown right now. And you know with the going to be able to get on the field this much. Pete Carroll and that Bradley -- as a coordinator wanted to get on the field. But I think at the end of the day. The thing that I really struggled we've been sick in Seattle would Seattle could score enough points. All in that he had I -- figure that some of those points are going to be defensive points. You know immediately got watching. Return or something like that let. I -- like Seattle playing at home right now thinking they're really gonna be fired up to port. Thought -- Peter a lot of people look at that Green -- game and say well you know they don't have a running game when they ran the ball at second half. It took some pressure off Rodgers and that's the difference of this New England Patriots team -- the run the ball better and a lot of people think. For the AM. And I think it depends on. You know current sports you know he. -- Seattle front right now you'll need a couple of guys. He you know you'll see a couple of guys played very very well. You know against the run and I think that is probably the difference right now. You couldn't. What you saw that name again. You know first thing because back when I look at the Seattle defensive front. OK I looked at I looked it he read between the community. You know -- then they can play that runs very well. You know with a Red Bryant you know -- them -- -- 320 pound defensive end for crying out loud. -- you -- he got a -- out in the middle who ingrained in the game. Yeah it was another 312 pound guy. And you know and he's going to be one of the key things out. Obviously. If the patriots choose to run. Near Seattle going to be playing three guys on the front brought in need pain in the and Alan Branch who all of phone. You know are pretty good play in Iraq and so right now the way I look at it I I couldn't agree we -- more than likely it is to gain. Where the patriots are definitely going to have to. You know we're gonna have to use their running -- gonna have to be very patient advocate basically -- the fate of recently emboldened. What you guys and maybe even the look at -- -- oh. You know who knows I mean would ethnic people get outside these guys. And that's where you'll be close but I think these other guys are going to be plain speaker. You are bigger defensive front than their -- they're used to playing so. You know there -- obviously after the good in this game particularly to try to take the crowd out of -- early. Peter last one on this one of -- Pete Carroll lot been written about him and his time in new wing limb with this game this weekend. I he seems like he is a high energy guy may be a different coach than many. That are made out a certain -- the National Football League does he need a certain team a younger team like this young team appears to respond to him does he need that to be. An effective coach young guys who'll buy into sort of a college approached by Pete Carroll. I think that's an excellent point I think you can't last year. You know the green they -- -- -- Matt Hasselbeck is not because they didn't like Matt. Former because he wasn't buying it and it was because they wanted to do. You don't try to solve their quarter as well for the long term incentive for the short term. So but I remember last year. Are 32 years ago -- and now. One -- Seattle and Portland in the first round playoff substance Seattle. And Matt Hasselbeck played the best game of his career. Remember -- after OPEC after the game and he made it clear that. You know one. One of the great things about this win is that it sort of validate what Pete Carroll was done. You know has as -- thanks that he ran off of but you guys who clearly. You know were not buying into -- program. And so. He needs those guys. And -- you know if you're veteran guy I mean you know let's say your remarks struggling your kidney right. You know or you're another better like say they sign that I'm really. A guy who's played great for so far in the defensive line Jason Jones the patriots so. He allowed it in on Sunday. He was about draft are unrestricted free agent. From the titans last year. And so he didn't get free agents won't go to one place or what they have totally by the end duty. If you don't question -- -- do we seem like a rock rock guys don't worry be happy. But he also. You know sort of like Jim Harbaugh. You know an autocrat. You know he asks you your opinion. What he -- once he makes up his mind you know don't go question. And so I think that's one of the things that Seattle was found out about it. People's civil war that's ever gonna work in the NFL long term I absolutely 100% disagree. If you got -- quarterback any system works in the NFL. You know what Belichick wasn't working Cleveland very well. He didn't have a quarterback. He's working pretty darn well in new England and he's got quarterback and I'm not seen as well that obviously Belichick agreed approach. Well it really helps when you have a quarterback couldn't get the job done. Peter Jonathan Vilma looks like he's gonna appeal the decision from Roger Goodell I guess is appealing an appeal of the appeal that what what does this thing and lake. -- wet when does it Andy's gonna just keep appealing we just like when he hears. What what did you know that the only is that clearly he can appeal. So we need read it and he understands that means you basically. You know Albert are reportedly that the commissioner to recuse himself which. I'll be honest yeah I actually think -- very good idea. Because I would love to see you know the other. You know that sort of -- -- -- -- the raiders. You know Art Shell hit the trail that look it's either get there in that case because then wherever they would say about this. You know normally wouldn't be able to say well maybe it'll work but -- mcqueary wouldn't be able they've seen it don't matter what sort of -- we had. He's not gonna reconsider his decision in the 38. I actually think that would be the idea but I think it's only going to be over when he gets out of court. And when he gets -- final determination in court and just I don't wanna have. You know I don't wanna make it seem like it's gonna last forever but. The same lawyer who has real happy. And had two of the plaintiffs in the start at eight. With four players were suspended. Or the use of illegal dietary supplements you know -- took a little over two years but they eventually. You know Kevin and Pat Williams eventually had served their four games. So -- I don't I think it collapsed the one time. And who knows Belmont may yet he is. He wished he may get all the money back you may get suspension. Rescinded. But it won't be by this. It McCain joins us every single week this time Sports Illustrated article and your luck Robert Griffin the third in in the headlines and rightfully so in the case RG three. One repeater do you think it's more on Shanahan. Their reel him in when he runs the football he's taken a beating or is that on him as a runner to and he runs smarter if that makes any sense their way Washington. England who and I remember talking. Mike Sweeney -- about -- -- this and that. That Russell Kirk Russell net Robert Byrd is is it's 218 pound guy he's not a side. Yet the 45 or conflicting whatever in the game means so. With -- -- open field he's got a little more carefully pick his spot. And they have emphasized in this week's what if you're near the -- anyway you've got a guy how important. What bill that he actually hurt app you like -- error that knows what might work. They'll be electric bill Eric stepped out of bounds and I think that -- -- the campuses -- going to be out there all along. I understand libraries and doing what you're doing. The you know our offensive line in. And they're not going at these guys it's totally changed the title of his life. And playing behind an offensive line if it was April of pocket need to get killed anyway. That the group since early I think he's going to be better at that though they're still won't be from. Whereabouts where he doesn't get hit and run out of -- -- want you go to -- thing. You know part libertarians than ever coached that game on Sunday and he goes yeah -- remember Barry and -- Meaning in 1998. When -- -- -- these -- -- consistent with the -- with a cold. The same that he is now although he's swept the couple you know he left guard play in between. And he called me that. What is doing things in Iraq right now that they didn't have anything that was murder courtiers in the NFL namely. According the no huddle happens this much is made is that is much is that -- I'm more items startled and I mean I certainly start. How much they're using the no huddle in Indianapolis early on seeing that in mind that. When he was not. You're sending your quarter back right now you're saying. He knows everything he can put or eleven players where they need to be seeking change play at the last minute. He doesn't get everything into. You can audible -- certain -- and all that others as well you know immediate absolutely. It -- mind boggling to me. That so far this year. He he's he's been lenient now probably only went for 34 snapped the middle of the power forward that as he. 34 or are they wrong. For a week or whatever to four games with a rookie quarterback it's I find it very very impressive. He's picked it up so. Peter great stuff on the high profile quarterbacks appreciate the time every single Friday -- -- talk in the next week. -- up Peter King Sports Illustrated joins us every week at this time when he does he's brought to you by town fair tire. Get a quick break ninety seconds it's some your reactions of other NFL -- and Mike Greece ESPN Boston patriots beat joins us twelve there.
