The boys start to break down Pats/Texans and whether or not the first game in the regular season will have any bearing on this playoff game at all. LJ really thinks it will come down to QB play and that Schaub just isn't going to cut it.
Red Sox Bench Coach Torey Luvollo joins the program to talk about Red Sox injuries and the MLB Replay process
Our number two Chris aligning with sports Sunday Sports Radio WEEI 6177797937. Then not all Red Sox some pretty much all Jon Lester threw the first hour lie detectors weighing in on the AT&T tax line on that will get to that just a moment. Out final round of the masters is going on a maturity people. Into getting into what is much science tiger. And without Phil as well he Mickelson showed up I think late Thursday night she flew in and Friday after energy is flied out. With Phil Mickelson. I he had a tough weekend are tough early going Richardson first round in a local guy Keegan Bradley struggled missed But there are some big games of the top the leaderboard some exciting. I young names of the Jordan's BT's twenty years old he's cash to win the masters I he'd be the youngest winner since 1979. LEB younger. Then the tiger was the first time you want it. And one of the things that really stood out to me is speaking with some people were down there this week to cover the toward talks and these young guys and it get back to tiger. The complete and water. Lack of off. Around around Tiger Woods to these guys are too young you think about twenty years old 21 years old with somebody like camera some would like walker. In somebody like Blix the Swedish guys and second right now and he's. He's like 28. You know some of these guys too young to really remember or at least have played with tiger against tiger. When he was hitting level like we never seen before the PGA tour earlier received since Jack. And they look at him now a Zagat shoot 77 on the weekends. Is that cats really contention anymore where is I mean Aaron I'm not old and your and all of you remember when. Final round tigers in the lead it was done forget about it I mean one year in the PGA YE Yang those big shots out late and ended up beating and yet that epic battle with Bob May. I nearly beat him in the PGA but it would for the most part just wasn't close he would get a lead and he was one of the best closers in the we'd seen in the sport. But it's just it's different now that's a different vibe. Around Tiger Woods and it's gone from seemingly a foregone conclusion that he would get to nineteen majors is seemingly foregone conclusion that he won't eat next year. Does play majors this year. Is give forty years old Jack won three. After he needs five Jack won three after forty to two of those were when he was forty and the masters in 986. Was kind of an out Larry's 46 years old. Tiger would be a hall of fame career from here on out five major championship all career to get in nineteen. I think it's interesting not only his fall from grace just as a player. In terms of winning majors the was in my opinion at least the best player on were last year he had five or six wins a torch to win major. But the bigger thing to me is just how some of these younger players perceive him do tiger as a contention it used to be regarded. The average stroke. The average round rather up a stroke in. In in the in the final round on Sundays when tiger was in contention real just kind of melted aged just. Folded around with a few exceptions mentioned Bob revealed in Nickels and it's good battles but. For the most part it was just tiger's world everybody else's playing for second they were on him Ernie Els just not Now is young guys just young enough to cocky enough and don't really remember that at least they didn't play through it. And they're saying how statute 75 on the weekends with what's not ID in the turn now but. I should be upon Sunday Bubba Watson very very likable guy. And I Jordan who were finding out a lot about trying to become the youngest masters winner a long time quick birds update we'll get back to the calls against 617779. 7937. Cordially NC DM IA's doing great to get the good news on him that was definitely a concern that you know DM IAA was. Out I got hit looked like in the that it from I thought it was illegal but not dirty if that makes sense I don't think there was intent to injure there. It was just one of those times you're trying to make a hockey play get the principal point contact up higher and you won it. So I thought it was an illegal hit not a dirty hit but by a help not the that you concussion translated to on the ice Thursday that part we don't know just yet. But Patrice Bergeron it sound like is fine I he missed the third period yesterday that would would have been a huge concern. I outside to go. There's not too many guys you point to and say this more important to the bees and Bergeron two way player in hockey this year. Obvious he's good according to coach Julianne and Chris Kelly looks like still day to day with that back injury so some. Relatively speaking. Minor bumps and Bruce is going into the Stanley Cup Playoffs but you know these guys especially Alec Bergeron if he could be on the ice on Thursday against the red he's going to be there. I HTT tech slide is 37937. It's like grab a few of these real quick a one Dexter says eight times over David Price let Lester walked. While you make Casey price a better pitcher at this stage of his career early younger I can cost more money. And now your bidding against everybody else you've got the cost control guy. Housing cost control we get the guided the under your control rather. The of the exclusive negotiating window with wants to stay here to guide it. As more in depth track record in the post season to sign him. And that point it's not a knock on price and gives great pitcher. But if you're looking at what you can do it even easier than that that will save you some money relative to what price can get on the open market signed last. I know detector can you imagine having Stanton in Boston did it forty plus homers easy architecture from western mass. Two words about prospects Daniel yep they can go hard the other way. I another one here says agree with you order percent top of the rotation guys talk about Lester innings a year post seasons died. Given the cash over five years five for one and should get it done. And out finally is Lester stats are comparable to average career he walked away from 244 million Lester has been better than Homer Bailey and look at the contract. That he just signed a few textures telling me the gets four clocked at. Well evening parade for a UConn for the championships I assume the men and women together out both of them winning the national title. Yes as tougher as Turkey's but happy for Kevin Ollie who now is the next. Hot coaching named to go from college to the end beauty after eight seasons. But undefeated in the NCAA tournament ally guys can say that are at six or 77797937. is in New Jersey he's up next When then. Just try to not cute bit Ali thank you and I can't believe that a low ball. Jon Lester like they don't agree that you like a side impact by one and whatever argument sake. We have been out of my. But you see a lot of contracts for your team that have gone got into the contract stratosphere and some of them have really worked out so well. But for a number like dapper Lester what he's so willing to stay. I agree I was surprised. When I saw what the number was at the end of spring training where the Red Sox know Lester broke off toxin seems like a a low ball contract terms of dollars in a low ball contract thirty years. definitely. god I G I mean lucky probably let out a little bit like that way radio reluctant I had. Yeah I mean yeah I'm with you thanks to the fall being a former yankees fans perspective. They're never shy about spending dollars. That Lester contract is makes sense and I've said this a few times. Because just getting back to this point I do think my gut still tells me they get a Don. Gut feeling they still get this contract done because I hate candidate it player just wants too much just wants to be a Boston too much. You back going to be here at the expense of taking deal it's foolish and a four year seventy to eighty million dollar contract before which. At ball way below market terms years below market terms the average annual There's no upside here it sounded like a Red Sox blown away with a give you four years but here's point six million a year. Which is probably more than you gonna get I guarantee each and every year on the open market that it could at least. I still think Lester would walk away from crystal he'd say no. But I could look at that is saying the Red Sox in good faith effort to try to. Do with last year what they've done with other guys which is over pay an average annual dollars but try to take that discounted terms of the number years seventy. I can't say that. I can't see it as they came under years came under dollars 6177797937. Bill isn't busted up next they've built. They would subject. who visual. You know what about. You guys keep in the world. Could together okay. guys they look at the guys renewed deal if everybody involved. Make him have the option to. Who boarded deals rivals ordered to the guys will. Make it work. So real simple. So three years of his make sure Israelis and three years seventy million. And then assuming he stays healthy another two years at how much. Ordered me at all. That would come out to volley at 5110. About then you know what would actions. YouTube. 120. It was cute guys so. Yeah It it it any guaranteed dollars sport. That that's just not gonna work for the players work for last. Well hope what works right now what made two big guy a two year deal seven million. With a guarantee. Appeared to remain nimble. The two more years of targeted what are enviable. Well let's get. That that that the five year 120 million dollar contract. Where. OK I guess that that's reasonable but I mean you if you're guaranteeing the money that it's not three years in the two years to five years. And yet we could what three years didn't work out three years it will be created numerous believe that you develop very animated. You know. Yeah I mean I like well. I guess I can't get what you in there you know again trial period so to speak at three year seventy million dollar. You know test blown the CP states LP and see if he still producing. The news saying guaranteed fifty million after that which is five for once money. Why would John again you'd think about it okay hometown discount know we heard the operator gets excited about it. to get past the idea of a hometown discount meeting complete insanity. Seventy million dollars even over a three years average dollars a lot of money. But it still. 50% of what can get out in the open market. You know why would I take seventy million guaranteed even for three years when I could just double that six years guaranteed at 140 million. You know six I can get that extra seventy million dollars over three more seasons just to go out in the open market. That would be a great team friendly kind of idea but Lester were being eyed Joseph and Wakefield once the way HL. What they've done so much for the in the you know 78 years. That burning up I don't know are already up at. I agree with UN and the injury concern for me is that they're now we are talking about Clay Buchholz we'd be having added I merely different conversation. But with Lester even a year it was bad in 2012. Still pitch to plus innings. Yeah I mean you don't get a picture wondering about that party and you don't hate you guys brought there get a going to be offered. And I are I think I really like the attitude that you just want the behavior I don't understand why the Internet situation black. We're not talking about giving the guy a 140. I'm not all that with the amount of money more book like the object audit. Well he had I think the Red Sox kind of Hewitt in the regard as well that's why I wasn't completely floored when he said OK if we here opera was the most that they had. I'll put out there by the time they broke off negotiations. But I'd be and neighbor of 400. Yell now and a and a big. Average annual value a Ford seventy for is an opera that you know the players get a that's an opera that it's designed to be turned out. Yeah independent though they looked like but based on the yacht I don't know it. All the the PR stunt getting negative PR because I think I had tickets ridiculous they have any Lester did lie to me if he blocks away at the end of the day. And and the Red Sox look back and in the end flick back and say. And they could of they could negotiate they could out of spring training but the only opera percent beat the teams the only one's gonna look bad that's an. Aerial my opinion darker integrated you know integrated I'm sorry you know it made it. It's the same age and it did Dustin Pedroia has I can't think of his name off my head to similar Pedroia as we negotiated down discounts the This situation it is thought here we cannot I mean update completely done park are now completely. It sounds like till the end of the season got to do have an exclusive negotiating window. Went thanks for the college and they've exclusive negotiating window with Lester. After the season is over and that it's free agency. But you know in my mind even if the Red Sox were come back with a big number in the fall. But it even gets to. Reagents even gets to the point were other teams are our ticketing contracts are offers a Lester you're probably spending more than what you have spent. It just get the deal done now. You just avoid any possibility any any chance did you rate in the another team another suitor and unlike David Ortiz we can't you know we had a debate about Ortiz is going to be even a market that is. And I thought maybe lot of people but absolutely now. That's fine with Lester there's no debate right. I mean when I can debate the fact that it thirty year old going on 31 year old lefty it's starting pitcher with a great post season track records that market. We know that that's the case there's going to be money thrown at this. So you have the opportunity. To not only negotiate exclusively with him up or you even touch or even Free agency. It to get an offer on the table to sign this guy if they're not able losing the player beat. I signing into a deal that maybe goes outside their comfort zone because now they worry about free agency not to worry about other offers them. You could have made a better fate in my mind decide than these reported figures in at these numbers are right you know he's not taking. It's an it's designed to be refused to keep brought out their deceit it's a hit proper. I don't think organ necessarily buy that I think that this mark baseball banner that. That they and as long as you're in line with keeping Lester some cables don't want that at any high price and that's fine that's your opinion I disagree by. It any band that wants Jon Lester back is valued at his team. It and understand just what the market is looking for the seventy's at It's an insult. Text messages committed 37937. AT&T like. Texas is Red Sox have too many pitches in the system they had the upper hand. Now that it's does its thing is too many pitchers in this is have a lot of starting pitching depth they have a lot of potential. As allowed by hope and is better than Jon Lester obese Kerr shot why not. But you know what you have in Jon Lester. You don't know what you have yet Henry and that goes to my point of if you're gonna have some of these cost control pre arbitration arbitration guys up. Lester got the money to do. He could have a a lot of money coming off the books over the next read of where years. Yet a pitcher John Lackey threw for 500000 dollars on next season. In NA and it not a salary cap sport but it sport I care about a 189 million dollar luxury tax threshold for the at least they're from last. I that to take three years the market's already at five to six. years as Lester won't get 140 on the open market I disagree I think he will. I the Texas is give Lester one of these two deals. Or for a hundred or seven and 12611. if the offer candidate for for a hundred then I would say you know the Sox made an effort. They made shots try to sign him and take battled down discounted terms of the year when it for par seventy it. and a few text is going back to a couple calls as a wide world Lester take three year deal and a trial period. We can get five years guaranteed and I completely agree this is an interesting text here get this one before the break. I you know I'm not entirely sure why everyone has the phrase 110 for five I should get it done because he had no idea. What will get it done in theory. Yet that would be a hometown discount. 111 for five years an option six and eight I have no way of knowing. Whether that would get it done so he's looking at 5110. I just keep coming back that number because I look at. What the market would probably and keep going back to guys like Cole Hamels you know reasonable comparable to last year's regular season numbers I see six. In 144. EC 23 and change per year so take roughly that average annual value. 43 in his case it's going to take a year back it five years old hometown discount. But he's not leaving and and the billions of dollars That's why I come back to that number I'll get it done I have no idea what I'd be willing to go to say. 150 over 520 million a year probably. Start pushing diablo or we'll talk. You see what the number but a number I have in mind. And a lot of people have in mind they think 22 million a year twenty to 22 million a year years and college day. Five years a 10210 million dollars 6177797937. The point though I had no idea we don't know. What gets I can tell you this though. Ward seven he doesn't get it on told you that before knowing. That that was the for the Jon Lester turned out we get back to your calls coming up next we'll talk war. A Red Sox get to the Bruins as well and what touch and the Celtics before the end of the show as well get to 4 o'clock Chris Blondie with Sports Radio. WE yeah.
Villani doesn't understand the Red Sox' approach to the negotiations with Jon Lester for an extension. Sure, you have to start somewhere, but their offer was so off base, it was almost insulting. He wonders if the Red Sox truly want Lester in the future and if they don't, WHY!?!
The Red Sox will have the proverbial log jam in the outfield when Shane Victorino returns - what should they do? Send Jackie Bradley back down, make a trade or something else...Butch and Buck discuss.
Transcript - will not be 100% accurate
He's a great teacher. -- -- that the way to he teaches the game. It's almost like. Like I'm not being coached him actually being taught. And and that's that's been. The part of this experience that stuck out the most to me. As brain related. Bill Belichick not just a coach. He's teacher. But I guarantees getting paid like a coach and not a teacher. 6177797. 937. -- -- touchdown catch that Houston. Victory 42 to fourteen yes Larry I was there. You could see it right from the very beginning the patriots are were gonna dominate. The Texans I'm not looking at that in retrospect I turned to my thirteen year old sons of this is going to be an easy night. For the patriots and I think the turning point in that game. If you recall that game in early December. Was like seven nothing's still I think the patriots were only up by ones war. When sharp move the ball down the field any through into the end zone in it appeared. Much it was Andre Johnson one of the wide receivers appeared open them recording came out of nowhere made a great. Our web app that was that what happened was he had aryan Foster open wide open flat right -- and instead he chose to go deep just quickly I -- we got a lot of calls lined up so -- can take as much time that we will break the game down as we go along. I think to meet the key is the patriots right now aside from Brady this season was betrayed that Belichick made when he stepped up -- gave up a fourth round pick. To bring to leave and to solidify the secondary -- -- according to move back to a far more comfortable position. As a safety I think Dan marriage. Who was passed over by many person because off field problems. I am very good our quarterback I think he's -- a very good job in that area they've got depth they got Wilson they've got -- And I think that but I think I'll leave the solidified. The secondary -- -- but the biggest problem they had. -- -- you can find somebody. Who can move Vince Wilfork out from the middle or wherever they put him they put two guys on them and they cannot. Control TM is a hot news Uga vents on one side and Brady on the about. You -- gronkowski back. I I don't -- must be a defensive coordinator is. Bum Phillips I don't know what the guys talking about without trying to you know talk about Welker. This is a nightmare for any defensive coordinator -- you cover -- tight -- cover Welker. Don't be surprised -- Floyd doesn't have a big game why because you can't cover. Everybody to keep this game as is why is usual he's quite the player he not why he he's quite bought the player. I'd met their current temperature plays opposite. Yeah. He knocked Brady down three times but no sack. Against him -- key to me also is the -- -- -- -- and can seem to be a little bit healthier as we both agreed believe we do not underestimate the bye week. So these guys Kidman and in in obviously resting get themselves together I'd like to see channel Jones come -- with a strong effort. Hopefully Ninkovich is is hip is okay. I don't you and I debate about last week I am never any point of giving a guarantee. The patriots are going to win -- I think they're gonna win yes do I think it went comfortably. Yes how's that I am not jam because things can happen these are still professional football players in an Arab and a fumble Ridley fumbled twice. You -- fumbled you can never turn over why is capable of wreaking Havoc in there cable I. You know what you mentioned that he knocked Brady down a couple times or three times of the game was over by the time that JJ watt was able to wreak any -- -- -- In that game he was nowhere when the patriots were building a 21 nothing lead the end of the first quarter okay he he did not. Impose his will at all this guy supposed to be the best defensive lineman in the game it was at least the best edge rusher in the game which when he point five sacks. I did not see that in all of that game -- he was neutralized meanwhile. On the on the other side of the football Wilfork was out there Wilfork we just me and handling that. Offensive line for the Texans as he did against -- and handles everybody nobody you know you think about the greatest game that Wilfork ever played was the the Baltimore AFC championship game last -- I mean he just he just made -- turn style. All of that Baltimore center. And you know he did the same thing against the Texans. I just can't see and I understand of people brought up the jets we understand what happen of the jets a couple of years ago blown out. On. Ridiculous aspects. -- -- -- that guy back then that Dan. The victory was that -- was ST today. That's Stephen A Smith. Steve and I can't tell the difference -- everybody screaming -- -- -- -- on everybody's creating all the way I gotta be accurately the granite and I don't like submitting gates in this afternoon at 1 o'clock am proud I am proud admit they went model our men are now trapped -- and this -- this this big tough former. -- working from the Yale. He -- down to what we on Hannity putting up there's just not acceptable to each his mind it's he reaches does that to meet your eminent pirate aren't -- only -- -- -- was. -- finest moment other than Doleac a teacher because he proved to be very honest and Colorado oh yeah he did this wife and up what is the one time hang up was actually correct you accused him. Of deceiving the public into thinking it's their current hearings was -- -- -- now as -- rebel position Clements was -- without warning that that was -- battle elated at -- talked about -- -- anything to talk about it right now it's patriots in Houston and I take a phone call now I think if I'm as ready for -- -- did you -- Redding Connecticut your next that's what you MW. Hey guys you guys -- -- great job. Enjoy some cheap unfortunately you know -- -- trucks and we're gonna win this week and just read you 124. Dogs are very far out the -- and actually -- -- score. -- -- -- It's going to be 31 point four I think there's a lot of plates that the attacks and artwork. -- moved the ball did they struggled inside the thirty in this -- third down completion. I -- gonna get some water touchdowns in the -- The patriots have been able to work a lot more with the lead but I think it's finally time that they're gonna get burned a little bit it's when they do what's a little bit and they're not gonna make that last you know. Tackle year old hooking up a denied in the last this is he bringing them down I think you might see some blogger actually answer it that -- let -- know. The only the only problem but that is when you blitz like you never blitz that you can blitz me -- anybody you you better know what you're doing. Because if you got a quarterback who can make that agreed he will burn you every time. So the biggest weak finish your your your banking your whole plan on match shop coming up for 31 point spread this is again it's thrown a grand total of one touchdown passes last five games. How is he suddenly gonna come up with 31 points is it gonna be all. Aryan Foster on the ground like he says he likes to come -- You might see and defensive fumble return over Cuba until it's under the -- this -- the ice going here and it's going to be sort of war -- twenty or you're gonna see that Texans pulled off what -- -- -- -- a lot of things what the patriots late in the -- did they got off to a bad start I think. I mean you have a -- ball better. -- thirteen miners. Who I mean Wilfork absolutely -- handle backing it and I know I mean he's gonna play well you're not gonna have that kind of game and that kind of -- That fumble -- you do bring -- you do bring a great point -- -- fumble yeah bet that Ridley fumble that wasn't Hernandez recovered that that was a lucky break but Fred promised me one thing. Please don't bet the house on. Got the iPod wanna -- -- -- primary electorate are wasn't so hot and got -- outs on this that was some Yahoo! taxing calling in from years and -- sound like in New England he really believes may -- -- -- scared that. Patriots can't post two wins in one season against the -- I think going back to shop should have been playing last week. With a collection of quarterbacks X as would not Rodgers but everybody else at the quarterback quality of play it was so poor. I just think that I don't know how match job we can can can raise his game to the point of the other quarterback to be playing dent in Brady. Is just about that I think to be when one -- two more. Playoff games don't tie or past Montana he is just a -- believable. Football player this just on -- Brady. You're here first Larry Johnson -- at which takes him -- -- -- -- to get a flu shot are obnoxious -- yesterday. And Martin. Yeah situations river a month ago. And ethical and down. We know it takes to win this -- -- on the Internet last it's a good week. Preparation move off this beats it to go. -- match job and company obviously. Messing up the bed. And -- terrible performance 4214. Last month I'm just looking at some. Interesting numbers here and according to the Elias Sports Bureau where. This is extensive research I've been doing throughout the week preparing for this show. Teams that lost by 28 points or more in the regular season to a team that face to get the post season. Eleven and eleven. In the rematch so it's a 5050 proposition if you attractive for the Houston Texans it's it's not it's not completely open. Bottom line is you can prepare you to all the worked during the week but suck when you come out of hoddle. And you're going up to the line of scrimmage shotgun or otherwise. And you're looking over to the defense. And all of a sudden you're saying things. In the year ago. Were -- for doing out here. Which teacher doing over a year it's. Ballot check will will -- show you the same thing. That you broke late when you played the last time just -- and he's just a master coach edit and again because the aggravate the heck out of me -- Little -- but when I see the college. This has gone on this past week and a half after our coach is coming and going and some hiring ice still don't understand and I believe me I'm more than content to realize we have. The best 01 of the best coaches in the early part while. In the Texas and somehow or another pull off the miracle and I think erratic -- egg. Craig -- you analyze it and if you have to. -- like -- got a stupid coach now. -- but it depend how it depends how they lose a game if a guy drops a -- is -- Belichick's fault that -- didn't catch the ball -- -- of -- let me -- you know that you've got to be able to break -- -- now if you left the Clark ran out of -- -- for a first down. By the way the picture -- number one in the NFL this past season with third down conversions. So I mean I'm just saying that they you know but yeah European allies again you look at. The Redskins game last week do you have the same. Amount of respect for Shanahan that you had before the game. I don't think he's a very good coach but I have my opinion is dropped out of that -- of his ability to make an assessment at the right time. I I just don't think bill has a radio little -- Belichick won't be -- in any kind of position where one decision is going to make or break the way it did Texas have to play. Virtually perfect football. They cannot turn the ball or shop cannot throw a pick six like he did against an inferior Cincinnati team at home. Keep in the -- angles somewhat in that game they have to do everything that they didn't do. Right in the December game -- have to do right this time now the jets were able to do that but I -- hearing all week. That the -- will there are different team they had more swagger -- -- more confidence this same team there right now is getting allowed -- Against him -- thing about the -- it's an inning in if you don't include this in your commentary -- argument about them and you don't really not paying attention. They had a arguably the best defensive player and football all of this past year. Regis was -- of credit for the best cornerback one of the best cornerbacks I've ever seen in terms of that you can put him out there against anybody. In shot down that half of the field right so that pot you have to give away the -- what's really gently when it was he on the field in the regular season game that your I believe he was. OK so why how -- the jets. Able to turn around and people are saying that that jet team. It's all in retrospect obviously 20/20 hindsight they had confidence going into the game a lot -- they have more confidence going in. Up to that patriot game two years ago in the Texans -- I don't know I think people are saying it's a completely different scenario. I agree with that but I'm just trying to come up with some. I think everybody because we'd like a stellar rushing out to ask myself as it was about a quarterback shop borrow those images from the thing though seriously. Saw there's a better quarterback but again. Sharaud has played a grand total this is the difference. I'd rather if you had asked me at this. Given moment. Who I'd rather have an -- starting eighteen to mark my choices were Mark Sanchez vs match up. Howard takes job but here's the difference in jet fans will be quick to point this out. Mark Sanchez won four games. Is post season career he's four and two in the playoffs. -- how many games match up 11 he's played one playoff game he's won one and all I also do not very restricted use say a quite a -- Wednesday game in some cases yes Brady had four touchdown passes the last time they played together. But of course there are other instances where when the 49ers lose the game does that mean Alex -- Is to blame because the special teams -- drug fumbled the -- now that was exceptional number I'm just saying so that you have to when you only do these things I think you have to analyze -- -- -- -- and the timing of what things happen I think the more relevant game believe it or not is the Baltimore game in the playoffs the year before the -- -- because I think Flacco. In spite of you are now sending him directly to the hall of fame and can't. After your comments in the first and a killer -- list from feature. I think show all the Flacco are very similar quarterbacks I know Flacco is one had more opportunities he's won five. He's one of five straight post seasons which is an amazing accomplishment for. All the flak that he gets is the quarterback. But I I think Flacco he remembered that game the or who the 09 season was January of ten when they played. Baltimore and we're down what 21 point four nothing after one quarter. Go through I think a grand total of ten passes a game remember so they won without the quarterback and that's why I think the Texas the only way. They can win is if -- for us. I was Aurora and I don't know how Foster -- Can run against the patriots front. Ray Rice could do it but Foster can't. That was an off tackle play. You know it was a play that broke everybody can anybody can break a bright guy but that -- -- -- Here's that here's the thing that it's so similar to the Houston game. When you have back -- back -- is like a boxer like you might hit but hit the guy whether topic -- come over with a right cross on top of that obviously what finishes off. We -- a 12 punch when you have right to break that play for a touchdown. Patriots get the -- back Brady gets strip and fumbled and then Baltimore recovers not a touchdown. The same thing with what is what is used in game you can have back to back mistakes like that and the next thing you know by halftime down. 21 to nothing now you've -- run our roster as much as you want to you have to pass in his match up guy you want back yeah. Bringing over Mark Sanchez. I don't know why aren't out at Romo. Like Democrat and I'm being facetious obviously I mean to arrest them when you compare it that's why I'm saying these games for the miles -- Optional games this weekend they'll -- -- they should be nothing like the games that we what's left. We as ours -- claiming last weekend last -- excited I was pulling a -- Johnson getting way too emotional about. Four Rawlings shall we speak -- obviously divisional round with four games. More quality teams the by teams are playing this week it should be much better football here to talk about that and other stuff is Walter in Bedford I want to. And I don't -- don't know you well -- at a club called public anger mounting a bullet like stalk -- and -- understand -- -- we want to RT. Well there's I keep hearing and hope it as an aggregate score in the world about quarterback -- I don't know work on the last couple moles that one thing. President -- -- in a minute restaurant I got. I'm now but does anybody give any credit atlas and now what Mitt -- Levy. You know I got to the super ball and didn't win five times that whenever people keep broke about a bottom but can he get any credit for getting -- What are you -- get credit and give our our Iran I'm here. You are hitting doubly so that they just bought a -- game and the -- quarterback about a cultural automatic gun away and that doesn't always happen. -- I know that's Craig talking I never -- automatic but I think okay beat number last year's Super Bowl. When Welker dropped the ball Tommy how that you can blame ballot check for the. While you're outlook and second they wanted to clear it helped to beat a good team. Two time and won't see her now I -- a lot of major Brandon we all argued -- always beat the jets why we all want to beat Miami like police posting. It is the worst division football question about it I mean actually -- apparent attack at a Miami. Both born yet. Expects -- team there's a bigger scene and to stop the beat a team twice look at sort are what the packer. Did outlawed they had Jack -- about the Iraq. Tied -- Points well -- really appreciate the call here's -- here's the difference in this I -- -- in my finger went -- but will be too quickly -- appreciate the -- -- where you liberals like that yellow -- in our -- I don't know her live along the way it is we're not really interested in hearing the -- opinion is exactly like other Vietnamese -- we -- -- the out of Washington now we just don't like diversity which -- Nigeria on -- -- -- Harry -- -- -- but support the bill -- What was I gonna say here's -- completely sidetracked -- as always oh yeah he was comparing. How difficult it was from Minnesota to be rebate wisely played six days before the difference was Minnesota won the first game. In the metrodome and had to go onto Lambeau Field or did they are why are gunning pondered means that help any. Probably look at a guy can at least heroic -- out out that two guys that have been elevated in Larry's mines as as far as the great pain at the out of quarterbacks Joseph Webb I don't a brewing QB Carson and I really like -- column now -- -- phenomenally -- the worst out of that game was that any game -- that 36 PM remember his run of the game. That was ugly tennis nice ride home well he's from Texas and actually might -- ice whose stock I don't know where he was brought up right outside of Texas you know who Katy Texas most prominent citizen and I wonder what he's doing these days when -- McNamee is up they're paying is -- for a visit.
