Craig and LJ talk political correctness, sexism, gender roles and offensive rhetoric - yes this is sports radio but these guys can get down like that. Of course this is all in regards to Brent Musburger's infamous comments about beauty queen Katherine Webb during the National Championship game. Mustard was legitimately offended by his fawning over Ms. Webb, but Larry thinks it was harmless, and in fact a very nice compliment.
Dale, Chris and Matt go around the table and give their thoughts on who will come out on top today in Houston.
Bill Belichick has decided to bench Stevan Ridley today as the troubled RB has been listed as inactive. Dale, Chris and Matt give their takes on how the situation was handled and if there is any way Ridley can get back on track.
Dale asks the guys their opinions on if the almighty "trap game" really exists as many fans think this week could be one of those games against an underachieving Texans team after a huge, emotional win vs Denver.
Tom calls the boys just moments after the news broke that Stevan Ridley would be inactive today and he gives his opinions on why that decision was made. He talks about Ridley's future going forward with the Pats. Tom also gives his opinion on what will go down today in Houston at 1pm and the conditions on the field.
