We check in with Arian Foster's good friend (and a good football player to boot) Jerod Mayo, who says Foster is not using it for motivation, he just found it funny and wanted people to see it. We also preview Texans @ Patriots.
Pete and Matt react to the signings and re-signings the Patriots agreed to over the weekend. Matt gives his perspective on the fractured relationship between the Patriots and Wes Welker.

We discuss the only topic of the day... the departure of Wes Welker and the signing of Danny Amendola.

The so that they're tight ends this time around we talk about a -- coming back -- items seemed to be healthy they like to run those multiple tight end sets. Is that a factor in this game with their running game. I didn't you know they have had answers are very balanced you know they can catch all of it also blocked so. Yet the -- in the end their streak it's identical Galactica -- Yes -- where they are inflammation. Keep separate departments. I'm sure you watch their first game. Let's talk about the mistakes that you saw either from yourself work collectively as a defense. That you made the first game anything to stand out to you that. That you feel like well we really need to clean this up we're going to be a problem in the playoff game. Often it's not -- every week after the start of communication rare couple players there where -- this one column that says that startled me you know.
