  2. The Chris Villani Show: The Failure of MLB Replay System

    Sun, 13 Apr 2014

    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.

  3. Chris Villani on the Lester Contract Situation

    Sun, 13 Apr 2014

    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!?!

    Sun, 13 Apr 2014

    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

Needless to say we'll all be watching the game 1 o'clock today between the patriots and the jets down at MetLife stadium in New Jersey but other than that. If it if I could only watch one other game the entire week and the beauty of reds on as I get to watch. How but if I can only watch one of the game and it's the way it's -- -- its -- be the Sunday night game sure and that's the one I can't wait to see and I just. I just have this feeling Peyton Manning to throw for like five tonight against the Indianapolis Colts and Welker is gonna have three of -- It's just it I just think he's gonna go crazy. Now -- all. I don't know I am waiting for the ball drop on that thing too because if there's been too good too good for this early in the year you know. Its own good though blew the peaking early argument but yeah I still feel that great about Indianapolis Stephenson to be honest I haven't gone -- On some in depth paper you -- -- seamless it's been a but comparable patriots opponent. Bought. I don't know I just I feel like if I'm the Indianapolis Colts highlight the progress I've made. From the Denver Broncos I love what we're doing -- -- -- little concerned that Warner threw three injuries or this level play Camby -- to the end of the year. I think this is great entertainment it's fun it's it's -- watch or would you agree rating number Lotta columns will be driven out of it but I not so sure. What happens tonight in that game one have a comparable to what goes on in January but I guess we will soon. I'm frankly. Very surprised that the patriots are sitting here at five and one I think at the end of the day they'll be at six and one. And considering what this rosters gone through this year. Some they had nothing to do -- obviously the Aaron Hernandez situation was nothing they could do anything about. But the fact of the matter is they played the first six games without the best tight in tandem in football right. From when they were help the year ago and now wasn't the whole season but when they were. Gronkowski and Hernandez formed. The most formidable tight and prepare at least by definition of the of the term -- and and they had to play every single game this season without him. A guy who you know was I guarantee 110 catches a year is doing that in Denver right now -- what they've been able to accomplish so far. With the kids and and the injuries and everything else has been remarkable I I've said before I think this is bill Belichick's best coaching jobs since he's been here. My head doesn't work while trying to remember all the other coach and while I'm I'd say it's definitely agree one and I I don't allow ranking them but. Beyond just the fact that the new people come they've had injuries in the event of the situations I mean I think we thought of you know and he would had been a pretty good or yes pretty big loss and that the idea that the guy we all thought to replace of them breaks and arm early as -- out there. The the idea -- of the -- that supposedly. Replacing some of the production with west has had multiple injuries now. The the guy that was sort of an afterthought signing that we know they've always like to put that out they've leaned heavily on and Julian Edelman. Into production from that spot beyond just the just the other you know the wide receiver -- The idea that this team has been so heavily just from a scheme standpoint -- too -- an organization won back to tight ends. You know that's that's that's who they -- it happened to sort of flipped that script and really run something different to get to five and one. There's a little Lotta cool story lines of that's kind of your thing and in how these guys have pulled it off. And that's not even address and the other side of the ball where they've had mentioned to the biggest guys go down so. Yes -- there's been a lot of a lot of duct tape and in and gorilla glue going on here but I think they've they've hold something pretty special together. That I don't really have nothing to do with him a year but it gives you nice pat on the front to say that while were at that point with some admittedly ugly wins in there. We we've bought herself some time in the back -- to continue growth to better. After this week two more weeks of play before they hit the bye week in week ten on their home against Miami next week at 1 o'clock game. Home against Pittsburgh Sunday November 3 at 425 -- the game you thought it was nowhere near the game you thought it was going to be. I mean let's just will play the game here will you know will dare to dream. I'd find it hard to believe that they can be 81 when they go to the bye week could be I again I I don't -- -- Do this with few every year nom I'm as guilty as anyone but I think that. 81. You know six and for me anything it's. Safely ahead of the rest of the crowd and continuing to -- me into the year's good enough yeah fourteen to 33 careless or for whatever. Give in to the tournament with the best version of view and that's that's why bit that the stressful wanting to lease from the showed a little bit lower with the ground thing because. Which -- back in January and -- we just wanna see this team topped the bottom of the best version of itself in January because. In this division you kind of expect him to unit anyway. What should make sure there and it with the best groups or 81 yes -- -- high possibility could could be doesn't matter not so much the fun to watch that way when the wind and makes our job a little stressful -- I think because they're so young what you see them continue to give -- of the -- will come with. Because you're playing the jets this week with geno Smith at quarterback next week you got Ryan antenna -- on the Miami Dolphins you party scene EJ Manuel. I'm curious of the three young quarterbacks two of them rookies but of the three young quarterbacks in the AFC east. Which is the one who concerns you the most from a patriots opponents perspective. The most polish the most guy right now is it ten Angel and I think will will dive in about a little more next week right I think -- is. Is the guy that's got a little -- -- shoulders. And their perform a little bit better I think EJ Manuel long term might be the best of the three we don't know that yet -- to me is just still very raw he has. A lot of qualities -- remind me of sort of a Cornell. -- -- Rule equal -- game he throws a nice deep -- ball he moves the pocket really well there's still some missing polish in the intermediate stuff and who knows with his. If a lover being you know you don't know that but I think -- -- Manuel looks more the kind of -- that that could give them some David he's been banged up himself so. I would look at this from sort of different angle over those three particular organizations coming up in a row. Jets Miami Pittsburgh I think the common denominator in those three is the inability to run the football and that's really what -- the three of them you know the jets. Really want to reestablish Mike Goodson was named to look for a with a -- that -- -- -- while Powell and Chris -- here. Some okay options -- some production their but it certainly not the dominating. You know LT in some really doesn't have the pastor that really ground -- yards that way first. Miami has -- -- Miller guy it's certainly not pop like it's been in the past and there's no Reggie Bush X-Factor got there anymore so it's a lot more on the quarterback's shoulders. And move around Pittsburgh meant all's gone. The running game the -- of that has put a lot of stress -- they don't need in the have been ugly -- are also so I think as much as we always talk about this new passing NFL week. Capsules that running game can -- horror in more than anything. We talked about the patriots have won twelve straight against the AFC east they've actually won eighteen of their last ninety. Against the AFC east. Is there anything about today's game that causes you enough concern to suggest that that's string may come to a halt here today against the jets. Bob -- the patriots so I'll just play doubles after on this I I think because of because of the lack of continuity there's been so many changes sort that dam breaking scenario that we were. Talking about earlier the idea that you've had problems at all three levels if we start to see mental errors in this game that your not used to the relatively youngest team on the road. On the defense of side because there are so many changes back there won't be unusual twist or to seem worse memories seem. And on the other side that the same dam breaking argument can be made that they've been giving away with. Other than Cincinnati week after week after week with these drops and it just hasn't yet hurt them so it's like you're dodging bullets we can we -- at some point once and so I think they rule we need to clean up those things especially for road game and will be relatively hostile place. Mental errors. You know protection boss were not someone can be purchased some -- and some freakish -- -- correct. Dropping football's smugglers and the other side those things can eventually accumulate weighed down. They'll need to avoid those -- I think if you start seeing a big mistake. Full tight game and at a time of possession game -- the wrong side that's conceivably I guess I'm for the jets. Tom -- made the point when he joins us from MetLife stadium the -- Smith likes to go deep it was a nice deep ball you know it does so the question then becomes -- have enough time to throw deep. In the patriots put enough pressure on geno Smith to make it deep ball almost a moot point one think because. Quarterback -- been an issue for the time while you I think they do it -- move the pocket which is -- past which means you if you're going right -- right out from under center you dash -- Or -- pass where you're you're faked once -- and and circle back the other direction I think move the pocket is really their best move in several athletic tackle and Berkshire efforts and allows them to do those kinds of thanks. He's been best when you keep him movie when you stand him -- statue and asked him to rebuild the -- a little tougher. What moved the pocket requires you to do those have a lot of production at the tide in position because that's usually the first regional office move the pocket stuff. Union -- tight in Kabul has played pretty solidly last few weeks and again of the sub fell. Thing if they could somehow involve him but. Keeping him moving simplifying the Reid usually -- dash -- only half field read for. You know -- the tight end in May be receiver and a comeback kind of thing but keeping it simple and being efficient and not put him in situations were cast to play. Read the field Joseph Montana style is probably their best that well and and when I look at at the jets. And I said this when we were first talking about the jets' offense against the Patriots defense I think their best that is running the football to me anyway and I think that's what they'd like to. It's unknown if they're built to do right now you know I I totally agree -- -- and I think they wanna -- that kind of team that loved the music and a team ball Rex wants to just run it on -- does but I don't know if he has the dynamic enough guys to pull that off. Chris -- solid player below Powell has shown some flashes bullet. That are in a similar situation I think the patriots were in the absence of Steven Ridley you know they didn't have a guy that can go give to that was gonna make explosive plays gonna make people miss gonna. Break tackles. They don't seem to have that person. And beyond what's going to be -- in patriots can gently on gamble more because -- makes things that makes life so much easier for Tom and the rest that often spot. It's definitely a team that would love to run at the probably tested because of the changes that have both linebacker in the to tackle positions. Shut the -- early. And I think it's it's much easier counsel for the -- is is jets' week for Tom Brady sort like Ohio State week when using college. -- -- There's you know on a pep rallies -- you know what I'm saying in terms of you know OK this is the opponent this is you know. Every -- -- -- -- -- -- the right get a little more cranked up about some opponents than say what I think that the coaching staff does because that comes from your leader and -- coach coach reports you know he doesn't. One of the sixteen above the other but you do see. A little more electricity a little more urgency I think it's something -- division games president physically he has -- history there at the outer -- in the locker you understand I understand that. But as a player and you know I think you can or part of re think its gonna affects your own fortunes down the road the jets certainly a rivalry may be a little luster is off but you know the poetry on the in the mouth early in this game I think you understand your flight -- and it's still just patriots. And I'm curious that you said that about Belichick. I mean to me he puts more import on the same weight puts more important buffalo gamer Miami game. First objective is to win the duration and things like that and I think he does feel that way. Not to think he's kind of passed the point of its jets you know it's the most. It's been a long time since he left the dad again my in my conversations here for. 1678 years old on that front so maybe I'm wrong maybe don't know anymore -- certainly remember at that time but again it was a it was a fresher -- -- so. Yeah I I think that the thing that carries -- you mentioned -- divisional game. We need to make museum makes -- been -- polarization for awhile as well where this is their Super Bowl you know you fuel. Offseason game planning going in to watch -- doing now and October there's a a sense will be up to that game that I don't think there is when your under the lead dog you don't have to react to the -- way that the would be certainly a cynic on the AT&T -- five months parties -- They have Tom Brady. Two they've beaten one good team and it took a near miracle. Okay well I mean I would say that the New Orleans when is easily their best win of the year they lost to Cincinnati. An excuse me other than that they've beaten. Buffalo the jets Tampa Bay and Atlanta. None of whom are dazzling at this point. -- -- what I think it's a safe -- I actually did were not showering praise on this group I think this is a flawed team thus -- but I think -- a position where they've got. All of wide road in front of the give better it's just you're you're really happy that you've come through with some I don't always are complete performance and there is -- one that you growing anger -- on the Atlanta it was a nice win no. The last week's one I mean two failed fourth quarter drive to make good on enemy now that that's something you gonna. You know brag about I think it's survive and advance arrive in advance and they've been doing that I don't think any one of these for six performances. You would hope you replicate and Jane worked as a problem would be good enough so. Yeah I think it's more your your happy you've gotten through to this point under the circumstances and context of what's your position that kind of thing and I would put the patriots. Immortal modest output of somewhere around 24 points on gonna go to. 44. To thirteen patriots I think. The jets are still gonna have difficulty moving the ball. And that's going to be the biggest test and it's begin to be calm field position game in the biggest part of field position games or turnover differential and -- as ago as gonna give asylum he still enough of those playmakers. Even without -- to pull the ball people in DeVon. In in calorie -- kind of people so. Point 413 pitchers has model. Well I talked about the -- point there is one we don't know where it is I don't he's maybe they'll be at a and and I picked the patriots to win against New Orleans who lightning is better football team in the jets are. I do know that the New Orleans game was here in the jets' game -- there and all lap but I I do think the patriots are better team in the jets at this point. Even with -- all of the injuries even with a all of the issues. Like you and I'm certainly not remember last year was 35 it was always thirty -- -- -- -- -- points. I don't also scored 35 the rest of the year this year with the offense that they've got but I think their defense even with the losses. Is better than it's been you know here in the past. When they face a more formidable offensive team than the jets are that defense make it stretched pretty thin will -- But I'm gonna say something like 2114. Some like that given the give up a couple of touchdowns scored three touchdowns. I'm guessing Brady. And -- would go this far out on a limb and say that that Brady will throwing touchdown pass to Rob Gronkowski and they go down. Don't don't just like that actually feel better about your idea of hood of a putrid story for suggest as defense and that. That may not happen. Why we got here -- thanks to Matt Loper who produces this whole thing to. -- price and Tom Curran who joined us from mom MetLife stadium to Alex beer who joined us to talk Red Sox baseball early on in the shell. For Matt Chatham I'm Dale Arnold enjoy your football everybody will talk to next week.
