Whatever research we have they're both. You know again that we played. Sixteen games -- played seventeen. Thank you plotting your which are at this point you know comes down not plays -- excuse and. All comes down to X situation. That was a bill. Bella jacket -- -- is -- press conference this week previewing. Routes so what's the sequel. Texans back at Gillette Stadium after didn't want Don. 4214. I think the consensus Larry is they'll make it closer. And beer -- might be a little bit more respectable but the most likely scenario is. Patriots moving on to the AFC championship game I do agree with you. But I think the game in Denver's going to be tighter I think they'll be a tighter game just for the ravens have so much. A playoff experience Flacco has won four games on the road believe and not in the post season and his career as much as. People wanna -- criticized Joseph Flacco lot of fans optical Flacco this week. In New England for obvious reason. Here you know -- gamble's stock the if the patriots won the coin flip obviously bella Terkel had abused and kickoff. In the years -- game almost right there because used and we'll start with the opening series. In efforts three and out. Or even if they have a couple of first downs and -- their -- -- -- -- psychological remember the last game Brady threw for touchdowns they were leading 21 and nothing at the end of the first half. If Brady wins this post season game he will break his tie -- Joseph Montana. They arrested. -- chuckle cracked the whip he will not allow them I can't say he won a lot of like Marc Platt 'cause that's happen in the Baltimore game so. He's out of Ares sometimes you know when you come out flat injury usually just getting knocked flat by the opposition. You are you hold on to this how -- any team in a playoff game about what. That means they're emotionally not prepared to play the I think golf fourteenth -- of violence -- -- the digital falls I. And sticking a flat the sage of can't in his next on Sports Radio WEEI. -- -- I didn't want to give a shout out my Brothers and sisters are in -- mother's eightieth birthday so that all gathered. I wanna give a shout out an -- and you you'll know you're whining about the Yankees is legendary figures don't whining about the Knoblauch got -- -- -- -- -- yet. Now we just what whining got the check bounced. That ship went up development of them -- I don't know if that's what he. They're important when going -- maybe. That that was very you know you can tell the Yankees in trouble this year when you're referring -- -- -- how many years ago. If you were in trouble yeah. And Napoli and the -- -- I don't know that. One year if they're trying to -- -- don't let -- to being funny about it. I realized I think it's going to be interesting what is new HGH. Testing him the -- to how accurate they're going to be what that whatever. But I think that if date -- if a guy stop. Taking stuff in in building up their strength and advantage to put up these ridiculous stat numbers. How would you like to be start paying some guy thirteen million a year for the next three years in if they're not doing anything and then number stock to drop. Well I don't like it. Are you talking about a close -- -- one. Designated that it republic when he can't. No -- about a guy who won't be back till July. All okay right. -- -- -- -- -- -- by the way I I really hadn't been able and check my computer only need to bribe to get and. Roger didn't need to pay less that I also I don't have a problem the sports writers but -- -- have a problem Larry. We don't hope for Clemens and bonds and corporate -- Bagwell I mean come on and I don't want to get that well didn't they a look at that it is ridiculous. Well it's probably gonna mental list of top hundred player yeah we only have a little bit like Iraq Bagwell is almost entirely on that. Here is where I think durable way. Nailed it is chilling. I'm only 38% of the vote put his right pinkie he was absolutely a 100% correct. Of people to blame for the situation and I her Iraq -- Sheehan and a few other Wright is whining about. How can you explain to some of the greatest players to ever play the game not being in the hall. And I I think eventually they should get in. But I blame the players who weren't using shame on them. That they didn't speak up and they didn't come out and say look they want -- -- -- an opportunity to slot -- -- this opportunity don't shelling -- at. But again. But again if you can't al-Qaeda problem we have was proving it its one thing to discuss and -- -- -- -- you can't try thinking additional amount traffic -- -- on how it's another thing if you have to go into a court of law are not you're under oh yeah but I'm just telling -- That claim that the blame should go. My check my attacking like a liberal now you're you're interrupting me and the blame should go to any of the players who were not using and they did not speak out and saying look don't include me mad punched the unclaimed. People like -- -- did he go to the union leadership of course the owner to quote a lot of -- You know and why did they allow it because obviously they get coming back from the strike in Iverson right up there for every park enjoying Bell's majestic home runs were McGwire and stuff like everybody else was. I would doubt that all star game notre saint both -- -- show instead it was silly. Well baseball players not to have a slander suit because the baseball right to vote against them all that's just idiotic. Lehman is slanderous and now the because this is just an award it's -- say your conferring an honor upon somebody not basic rights are not being taken -- I don't and -- Other opening itself up to slander suit the writer did -- Well it didn't take note. His note to EEU Israel last one and that topic -- I think Roger and bonds and and -- -- while these guys should get -- ya but here's what I think should happen. Let them wait -- they'll last year of eligibility. And then vote him in so we can marks Roger walked across the stage whether Obama walked or something in bonds are you aware that an error that I don't let -- break into the last year. And then vote -- -- -- -- damn right of outgoing and now in front of appears in the people that matter the most in a in the is still pretty ridiculous. Argument. Well they had hall of fame members even before they start using that even more reason why they shouldn't have been using them. Let me ask you went into the city and taking vitamin supplements. Absolutely. Right I -- -- your compatriots like. They you have to be response -- ball in must disease guys -- that's where I don't even understand that no -- Sports Illustrated cover and who is the guy or that Brady Anderson had that great when you want to -- editorial sense I'm sorry that. What you gotta go buy in of the I think the likes of Pedro and shelling and people like that if nothing was ever. -- about them. Then I think they should have scream from the mountain drops. Unclaimed. Don't put me over them they should've done that but everybody was afraid of the baseball union and everybody wanted to stay in lockstep so this is what you end up where. Then what do we know about an hour. -- UPE was better than Jeter. Captain and yes I you talk about -- talk about the jets what I'm -- our team -- Market you have a coach who has a volley and -- the next general manager is Larry you don't want them. Taxes are begging is not that talks steroids in the hall of -- I'm begging you not to continue your -- forward weighs about the jets -- bond in all the jets and attack -- -- I don't know whether you know the pylon but let's ideologue. This is right. Here obviously. You can't what happened. Check Google it is marching for Baltimore and Clinton and you know what. Oh yeah I can't go on the show without argument -- never heard such respect for Joseph Flacco. I just let the guy had a good game last 340. Point nine rating and. Got to block. To win this game it's going to be because -- -- been shut down Manning that's already been well. Bought the Muslim have to put some some points up I don't know whether you know it or not but you can't Manning has a way of putting points on the scoreboard I don't know whether you know about a nonsense since I'm used to that. Since I'm not used to that -- you since you're not used to that with the quarterback you have. All of the -- get it. -- I suppose you've got a -- when -- around. No I don't have a pet do. But I opened the Atlantic game. Atlanta Seattle. -- is -- train -- gonna finally delivered. But I tell you why. I think the most you know he's never lost back to back games at home. He's never won a close seizing him as -- now. So there you go by I think it's -- they're obviously. A more balanced team Atlanta they're playing at home. They are unbeatable down there I understand that but. He's got a lot of pressure so why your family is some might pales in home gathering with them -- we got your birthday -- -- Mike's mom and -- our condolences to the rest of his his family that they have him 6177797. 937. Let's get back to the phones we -- Jeremy up in New Hampshire allowed. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- And I disliked. And -- -- -- ripped apart and I think that we didn't have a good game I think -- is gonna have to air out. It's going to be right now 150 yards 125 yards. Nobody talked about a moment -- about -- he's got a pretty -- he's in the that would -- in. That's what I think is gonna happen I think that the I don't -- the promised land identities.
