Dale and Kirk Aren't Worried About the Celtics' Slow Start or Aqib Talib

Nov 3, 2012|

Dale and Kirk roll on discussing the rough first couple games for the Celtics and their lack of aggression on D. Rondo has not played well, especially on the defensive side, but the boys don't have a problem with his hard foul on D-Wade. They then move on to the Pats trading for DB Aqib Talib and what this addition will mean for their struggling secondary.

By the way I hate the Mike Kabila's era is over in turn up it's up. They just traded him today. Michael -- is the guy traded -- part of of the package rated by the Red Sox the the Toronto Blue Jays for John Ferrell. While today they traded -- realistic Cleveland for a pitcher. So the all of you bought your Toronto Blue Jays have -- jerseys you might wanna turn the men now as he is a blue Jane -- And it shows how much are they got back for Farrell I mean for blue jays and the extent to which have to be thinking. We gave the guy away. Three team in our division I want him badly it will probably help or hurt this team got nothing -- You gonna lose many years that players and it. On let's talk about a couple of other things for a quick here we'll open lines of bring you guys in -- Celtics start the season owing to know sorry I'm not in the mood to panic. I still think they're going to be pretty darn good I still think they've got a fair amount of talent. I will say this there there were. Commitment to defense hasn't quite when I was kind of hoping to see -- this early stage in. Part of that may be up all raft of new personality not -- carry over from previous the previous team. They're not quite as defensively sound. I wanted to say yes it's way too early to be really concerned about that. It was -- Washburn this morning the globe I think we're about these right. These first two games I have noticed Rondo is not play ball all defensively Jennings went to the basket at will against him last thing at the start with him. Defensively -- and Garnett. But -- a conversation we're going to be having six weeks from now. What's wrong with so XP that's probably not no but these first two games that mean against Miami renders them last I mean it's you know mediocre past Milwaukee team. Not good not a good start only too happy to be won once a -- jump off a bridge year but he says surprisingly sort of Blase start for the. I I don't think there is good is as the Miami Heat I didn't think it before the seasonal -- I don't think it now I think the Miami Heat got better. The team that won the NBA championship by adding Ray Allen got better. Now ironically I think the Celtics are also better than they were last year yep I agree I think they will be better as the season goes on -- both teams improve themselves. But if the team that won the NBA championship improved why what I think that the Celtics have suddenly surpass them I don't. Way to could shine right talks in making giant leap forward in this crazy move. I agree I mean you have again in the NBA it's -- it's true -- mean you're the best player in the world to it just matters you know and and wade looks healthy. This year to -- LP in the last year. He doesn't release does -- -- up -- out last night but I mean they're they're great you know they're they are I still think the class of the sex assault to the second best team. Let's get tickled and a lot of moving parts for helpers and take a little while. I. And I know this goes back a couple of games but I just felt the need to get this off my chest. The issues. Rajon Rondo is close line between way to the end of that game. And and I thought Doc Rivers when I heard him on with the NC talked about it any -- talked about it on the big show as well yeah. Let's not forget what. I'd arm problem that's up a panel like that stuff that I have a problem with cagey about. It's just it's whatever I do I think part it's time with -- yes yes of course I mean I do wonder ago I was actually I was on the eighteenth -- that there is amassed -- but. -- -- -- It autumn never ever what he forgets you're there that's true if you know as a -- -- to your debts if if if let's say it's it's all star weekend in neither Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett playing ouster and if ladder same airports the two -- them at some terminal. -- -- just talk talk to that then of course he pockets or does -- not only -- to talk to meet you my Hogg an ideal -- Put -- -- the Rondo thing. That problem -- the what if -- did -- to Rondo. Will be jumping up that surely that's the Waco OK -- -- -- it was not. It was fine and it was you know was he trying to get them yet we -- but I I like the fact is you don't like each. It's it's recognized I -- -- -- -- good is he real rival time manufacture robbery throw Allen into the mix gives little more Jews these teams. -- -- great good good brawl yes yes. I I don't think the -- to start as you set I thought they'd be one on one right now you thought they'd be one on one right now I thought they'd lose to the Eaton beat Milwaukee. The fact that their owing to was not you know cause for panic here I think -- be better I think doc is a brilliant great coach. And -- -- at them he will get them to play better defensively than they are right now yes it's driving him nuts that they're not playing it yeah. I have to imagine he thought this would be a situation with all these new guys playing all these key roles and Jeff green is basically also a new guy. I think it's it's it's been two games. This month from now it's a concern powered by. And we talked about the there was a seventh round draft pick that comes from Tampa patriots give up a fourth round draft pick I heard Mike -- talking about this on the station. On Friday and he's right if you look at. Fourth round draft picks that seems to be about the going rate that's what they gave up to get Randy Moss then that's what they gave up to get Deion Branch from Seattle it's what they gave up to get Albert -- were right. In this case I think that if they had a fifth round pick that might got the job done as well by the weather -- and so they had to give up fourth round. Given the state of their secondary and their inability to keep people from beating them deep I thought this was a good move from a football operations perspective. If this guy hands up being in -- -- He will be. Gone. Via -- basis you know double secret probation stuff he's gone first thing happens. And a personal stuff with him in -- -- logger from around here the people are you know. The -- -- -- -- -- -- a lot of people even know the vote yet strategy is not good but again you bring amendment to play for and have a team so. I could be bring images like any other guy doesn't work out you -- heard of them that they had to find a way to trying to upgrade the secondary Belichick basically acknowledge it by making this deal. It's a bad second there he comes in makes it better he plays all the rest of the year great -- the -- If not -- and it's a fourth -- panic I mean you know not insignificant we don't care right were absolutely worth the risk. Let's be honest stated traded down in in and got rid of it anyway. And I got brought another pick for next year I may be true I mean what would we hide the fact that they gave up fourth round pick doesn't bother me at all in fact I'm actually kind of impressed. Because it indicates the bill ballot check acknowledges what we all see with -- our own line. Is secondary stinks up. They need help. And I liked the fact that this acquisition probably means -- according gets to stay at safety spot where I'd prefer to see him anyway I imagine. I've. I think what you'll see ultimately going forward once they get all their. Ducks in a row here. He can't play next week against buffalo anyway -- can't step into the facility until a week from next Monday the day after the buffalo game and what you'll see eventually here is I think you'll see. -- dinner at one corner Aqib Talib at the other. By the Cuba scores I mean was an art it's terrible. I do I do think just that in his game this year is remodel my -- incredible idea that getting the same response use them to dale. You know I'm sure. Belichick. In May be different dangerous situation. Talk to -- on who's in there. Have listened very close friends know each other very well this -- wanna come here play footballers again dink around economist for two weeks imagination games -- endorsement. Now -- its worth it for fourth round pick. They bring him. Absolute. Risk reward for the Smart move I liked. Well Alex is repeal too so you'd better be there. Like that -- saying it exactly mark he's not exactly is exactly what happened -- it -- work he's out the door -- overtly mean is that you know Randy -- -- You know did it's worth the apps and worth the risk move. And it's that extra points out at 37937. Sterling Moore got signed back on the practice squad after the economy this week he could return to the full time roster at some point a little surprised by that one. That one I guess more than any other -- Probably -- that. The plan here was to bring back the practice squad if nobody else jumped on it via. The plays he made against the ravens sure saved him and I mean remember ever as a public -- this a defensive back who can read the bald make a break make an interception while the. Only 2.2. I was X prize he cleared all the way through yet you know. But he talked with sterling warned that guy he can't trust them that spot this is why they had to bring to be -- have to bring in a guy you know is it legit NFL corner. Now they have on now to -- comes here and start staking and distorts what's going on. You can he can play corner percent to then I guess even more questions about the coach -- secondary.
