It is mustard and Johnson's sports. Saturday tomorrow course scenario Sunday in the NFL. Teams and other go to the post season two spots in the NFC up for grabs. Skins and cowboys capping off the season. And Sunday Night Football the winner of that. When the NFC east in the fourth seed in the national football conference and giant fans out there including our producer from now Loper ride in fan extraordinaire. Opening that -- -- Oh win at home Green Bay on the road against Minnesota. In obviously Dallas test wells that's all that's all by the there's an -- play. By the way the giants are also hosting the some of the families of the new town. Tragedy. And lest we forget they have to win the game -- yup they've really gonna weigh in with the crew story -- Jeter and Adam that like -- there -- also talking about the stories of 2012. Some that have touched you the most of -- of victories and defeats inches. You don't moral victories and in some tragic situations and I I still think new town will be with me along. Time so you can certainly weigh in on that as well 6177797937. We go to Brendan in the car brand. -- -- -- They -- it turned sour atmosphere drying. -- I'm not there and some of the pretty good. Well thank you -- your dorm every day Fred WEEI dot com new -- on the site and you'll find it. Our own and got together if they -- gonna wake up an hour earlier in our 8 o'clock and -- or network. From -- I'm not out there what will -- to have a closed circuit show that will make available to simply -- how they'll give me a cellphone and I'm right here that it is cell phone number and car you -- -- -- and -- -- -- -- that -- Actually the audit you if you guys take oh good Czech Republic and actually get where Avery Bradley coming back and always a very good essentially but I'm just not seeing it right now he negated rally will be -- that triggered a spark that's all group. I think he will be the catalyst in terms of on defense he'll take that that take the the toughest scorer that backcourt scorer in and he really. Gets in your face and that can't get contagious. My problem or is Maher -- like the Brandon Bass type that people that you need a bang her. I love Salinger I really don't I really like him a lot. But what you gotta find even with some of the younger guys are Jeff -- coming back is the lack of consistency. One minute you -- be really impressed with them and then the next minute but you know -- that clippers game was embarrassing them they played Golden State I believe tonight. Jackson is doing a great job with -- by the way out there and Golden State me. I was suspicious. I wasn't sure if a guy can come out of the announcing Booth they had that great troika. On ABC and ESP hand and suddenly find. He's in he's never coached before I -- take another -- might be coming out is being done. With the with the Brooklyn I'm hoping I know right now would be such a law you gotta have pig -- -- What's my Micah brain from ABC and ESP those guys -- just magic together that would not be as far as -- it's not obviously the difference is van Gundy. As a cut a couple of coaching stops and he's a life -- out of our army is getting dragged -- down for red that was awhile ago but of being Gundy. As as as much as he may be. The right man for the Brooklyn nets that would be a big will -- for basketball fans have been Gundy isn't. Working the ABC and ESPN -- microphones but the Celtics right now Larry. Nothing ever changes from week to week -- Leon here once every seven days and every time I checked or 500 team no matter what happens right another fifteen and fifteen grow again and you're not gonna get the same mileage out of guy that. It's that you got before it's obvious about and the other is in -- not getting the outside. Scoring. Terry is not filling them not the way Allen did and he goes through he's hot and cold as some shrewd as but he is more cold than hot. Right and you know and and I think that Kirk in and Pete were touching on this a little bit yesterday. Going over that game in LA the night before. And -- made a great point and we certainly brought this up you know -- -- don't worry about it solely. Bill in the month December. Now and November or January February whatever it is the Celtics have been in this. Position before Brooke Burke brought up I thought interesting point and it's true. Just because it's happened a couple times before is that evidence to believe is that -- not enough to believe that this year will be continuation of years past. Now in not. Part of what you are hoping that team will build on is is determined by the age factor right. -- means -- yeah well they did two years ago while now you know you getting a little bit older. But here and as you get older you keep it in again. The problem Rondo has as he wants to -- in some of the team can run in some of the -- can't run -- so that's why the the offense isn't consistent. In the defense did not. But I don't whether they have -- -- it well enough yet or what but they're not mating -- switches and not communicating the way. -- and what you're looking at it optimistically you look at Bradley he's full of energy plays great defense maybe that's exactly. What this team needs to get kick started but -- I I figure. A little bit in dire straits if you believe that you've re Bradley. Returnees the key to your success will it help. Certainly gotten out it'll help but I'll tell you what big picture now do you have the deal with the better competition a thing about the Nixon days. Most teams in the west yeah -- the clippers shortcomings that killed a disabled is the clippers are right now.
