You don't like putting on my old football pants is a good idea. I if it was never a good idea it was something where quite frankly I got there I was giving me fine people here at school window softer did you Google going to Jersey I did not know I was going to be getting instead of football finance the one thing and there are many things humorous about playing football one thing I do not miss putting out football pants help enhance our restrictive than they are wise there's usually very rough out HE there are none of that is very good so I didn't miss that part did miss the kick. And die a listen it was cold it was slick and I had only. Three goals when I stepped up and I kicked I wanted to there was a seven foot fence right doses ever take pride in right okay. There was a seven foot fence there was a small patch of grass and the was made and I said are divided come out of this. And clear the fence give the ball up in the air enough to get over the fence if I can stay upright not slip fall and her eyes saw a lot of people do that at all. Happened in droves especially as the day went on in the snow continue to fall and beat not tear my hamstring off the bone I will consider this a success and if you're seeing the video on ESPN two bitches ran or didn't you at goal can we go on into Graham or Twitter you'll see accomplished. All three of those that all of us I never even solid ball and then after the Fed went way left I think you know last time you hit the building there or the army because there were building IE I got people you know you might have hit the building. Figured you were a little. You showed some trepidation on your stepped but I understand because this all was all over the place. You didn't go pass defense a little bit cleared it through Atlanta and hit anybody and you were way better than a lot of people the one that made sports center with a guy kicked it directly left. Locked into some guys sweeteners you don't know what that was like a bigger dose that was the second doubled going I me into weekends for that that's a bad double pointer and that's a short it had a guy well it was great for us it was not want security out yet should get brought importantly a no injuries out there throughout that process a lot. People are good attitude to better understanding of Cody park he went for exactly gold do we go present about progress mature it's comparing rates to help you save caller clicked today and find out how much progressive could say if you don't forget get in touch with us want in a flowers dot com Twitter feed who won the weekend. By the way I'm giving it to use senior. But not for the reasons that most people think oh boy I'm giving it to you because you just embrace the term elephants and for that I appreciate you very I really did that a mocking radio but it just rolled off the tone that. That speaking of rolling off the tongue man chalk matters in the NFL playoffs what have we seen time and time again this weekend was living proof that the by means more than anything these days this weekend's results guarantee us. That we're going to have either one or two seeds in the Super Bowl. For the sixth straight season again the last five Super Bowls have been 91 seeds and 12 seed. And right now it looks like that. Trend is heading up again as all four teams with the bye came away with a win over the weekend. I'm trying to figure out why. That yeah. Talent do I thought there was your late night. Here's the thing I can I turn on turn it off way more than normal because I have a bit of a cold yet so I don't wanna have sniffles and the Mike come down at all. I tried to save people from listening to hear me have sniffles and ardent ago got a real blow your nose or something to turn their my daughters you saved and I'm it was do you take out of oil and I think that that's true. What are this happened I mean why all of a sudden since 2002 well are we not having a wild card team in here went. Well I know we're saying. The buyer manners when you've got all the sudden start to matter was there are a year along the lines it's at O'Hare it's gonna matter right now I'm trying to figure out why this trend has changed apparently Tony thirteen is that we actually I don't know why. That was the year that that that patent set the record with 55 to write down pros in the Seattle came in of that number one defense and it's just been that way or resents. It's been really crazy yes I don't know how it affected obviously the buyer matters in certain things mechanically to come along with that the ability to raspy her time did you get all this so. You're one of the top two seeds like you're getting a bye because you're one of the best teams and also the best team winning on a given day. Is it necessarily a surprise but to see it happen so often and as portable or we don't have series these are one game elimination. Events. And we've seen that it regardless it quite frankly this weekend. Mostly gained 42 closely outside of the last game with Philadelphia new worlds the rest of these games even when loss even though the final score may tele date may look different after they were blown out these games were not. Well listen that they're the closest one out of before the game last night was the cowboys came implement that was not his forces or by any stretch of the imagination quite honestly. I think we all believed may be the game last night. Are the that they second game in the late afternoon was going to be the ball it was 487 when the saints and Eagles play the regular season outing anybody who believe it was going to be that. But I thought the saints were to win comfortably in this one here the Eagles are fourteen zipping your role what what's going on this one. Yeah it was incredible and and the thing about that game which again went down that play vials on Jeffrey which will get to Namibia to the final scores twenty to fourteen. Honestly. The saints actually dominated that game dominated outside of off up above about up about a five minute stretch. In the first quarter you look at the numbers they had ten more first downs. It's thirty more plays almost a twenty formal plea 71 of 47. It for a point total yards to 250 yards time of possession was ridiculous 37 and 22. It's just that they got behind early on them but interception by Drew Brees on the first play of the game. Amid polls makes him pay then they get that second touchdown and after that they settled out and they absolutely woke them up front. But they just couldn't get the scores to put more weight but that one drive was just incredible. I was on eighteen play 92 yard drive that took eleven and a half minutes off the clock. Put that in perspective. In overtime session is ten minutes that that one drop it lasted longer than an overtime session but all that being said. Eagles still had that chance edited after will let's missed the 52 yard field goal they get the ball back in and right before the two minute warning they. The Eagles squeezed off one more play and the play was there to be made. Drew Brees it all John Jeffrey in the hands went right through his knuckles under false yarn. That white two loss on Jeffries hands and Marshall allowed more came up with a second interception of the game which is kind of interesting because I thought the first interception in my Marcia a lot of more sort of turned the tide right because it was going the way of the Eagles early on there up fourteen and up and they got the ball again. And then nick full stride hit urged on the sidelines and he comes up with that interception and that was sort of the spark. I think that New Orleans needed to get that dome field advantage back into it and and after that they they really started to roll. It's amazing because you're the half time reports you know coming out by the by the sideline reporters. And basically saying that that. That's Shawntae it was Saint Louis and they came hours to start the game when the Eagles what ultimately came out what more energy and it's so tough to fat and I'm sure for people here wait a minute. Your your home stadium went the whole crowd with you as loud as heck in there and you're saying that the other team and in this case the Eagles. Came out or more energy and you know what we're just kind of really. Hard to believe I don't know if you've got caught up in the beginning of the game fault a little bit which can happen sometimes you're so hyped you actually get tired. And you think I'm not gonna come to this before you finally get your second win. Whatever their reason was put to pick on the first play to your point track thought was actually Eugene you saw a couple of picks an under thrown deep ball. But man I mean then the way the saints took charge and is that they ran one more in route that was just chilling. Killing the eagle which was Michael Thomas I mean these third and longs that they were making your third and third and nine to them is as easy as the third and two it's ridiculous how well they can make it but you just saw that momentum changed like. Finally new orleans' realized where we are what we're doing all by the way were down fourteen we bettors are pick in this thing up. They know what came out with more energy when you throw an interception that early in the game and the Eagles right away on the road in one of the most lauded a home environment go out there and put up points early like that torture yourself. Everybody was shell shocked. Everyone Mets stadium was shell shocked everyone on the same sideline couldn't believe what was happening and then it all turnaround and I think the thing that stood out outside of obviously that interception was also the coaching job like that winds are finding drive you talked about and the things surrounding that weather was his in my mind you do what is it about the interception there's nothing that may have lit the match the thing that started the fire was that date on depth takes the hill on them running. That fake punt into a safe defense look like I picked. Cannot tell you how atypical that is and how chips in the middle of the table Sean Payton showed everyone he is with some of the decisions he made on fourth down and specifically on that play in the game you just so people understand that fake punt came on the drive after the interception so they got the interception there they got to go it was fourth and on from their own thirty yard Lawrence. They were basically inside their 35. They went for a fourth and one and after the game Sean Payton said yeah I just felt like we needed someone to get has gone. Each one of those kind of calculated Mike felt pretty good about the look we're getting. Much I trust takes a lot he's a powerful runner. And so generally good looks that are some what favorable. Also come with some risk and but we felt. Especially where we were in the game and look I know it was early in the game and yet there's still. Similar to New York if you will where we need to shift momentum. And we were able to fortunately in and take advantage of it but. There's really based on the looks we sold during the week. But that's hinders him because it was against a safe punt you know it wasn't against someone that they thought that they might be there were gaps this was a starter yes John ups. Gonna let that they did this I mean you have to understand what what goes on because I've being a defense supplier. I was on the field for many times during a safe punt safe what is what you call if you're the team receiving upon which read your defense stays out there. Because you're expecting the possibility. All the faith and there are some criticism of why didn't that that there was apparently out on that as well. It was holding against the saints and what do knocked him back and made like a third and fifteen and a lot of people are saying you know what why did Doug Peterson. Take a penalty. Well he got third fifteen or forfeit one on. The other team's own thirty you do not expect a fake Mel so I understood the declining that contained are gonna put the ball away. It is Thursday that the defense is out there. And again I'm I've been on the punt team as well you bought their foray fake punt. And you have to call certain you're either are running the fake you walked with the intention of running the fake if you see something up that you don't like it's up to the PP the personal protector or in this case is take some hill. And you know who the quarterback either all everything on that team called off when you punt the ball. I'd I was as stunned as anybody out there they ran not only get ran a fake but they ran right to the Fletcher Cox and that difference of. It was an unbelievable as it creative say you know Paul and fullback dive. So as the fullback where it's offense and offensive line guys that are people out there and block that defense of line. You essentially ran an offensive play with the element of surprise against the defense that was out there because. You were not surprised by this idea of them going for a fix all of it is so atypical bought all of it is that you show. This is exactly what Sean Payton said there I knew this is what we needed this team needed to feel. The weight of not only the situation but the conference that does coaching staff had in them to go out there and accomplish in that phase of the game as well. Yet the thing that was really interesting to me and what do we say going into the post season we thought that of all the teams that were that had a chance. The saints were the most complete team right we've they've they showed her all year often defense and special teams. And I think that game sort of sum that up in a lot of ways because they got behind early they found a way to fight out of bed and they overcame mistakes. On that 118 play drive AT I think they actually. Accumulate a 140 yards on the drive because of penalties time and time again. And you know Mike those are drive kill off you get behind all the time you know they weren't that bad at third and fifteen on that drive I get a third at thirteen on that drive. They converted those drives. That's how good of a team you are when you could overcome those signs kind of things and still find a way to keep that drive going and put up points on the board. That to me was was the definition of why we think this saints team heading into the playoffs might have been the best out of all the teams had a chance a little bar. Yeah I mean that you have Drew Brees. You have Drew Brees hit in the third and longs and I'm I'm just trying to look at their play by play. And all of all of a third downs and how well there were eight to fifteen on third down and four of nine on third and seven or more in that game I mean it's incredible. Absolutely ridiculous what they did it again most of more to Michael Thomas Guillen doubled to a twelve catches for 171 yards mostly in routes. Amazingly enough with the distance to get the first down your next leading receiver was Camaro or for receptions I mean it was Michael Thomas. And leave the Eagles. Who looked like pureed good coverage early in the game could do nothing to stop bomb as the momentum change. I think with the Eagles ended up being the story that we had seen for the majority viewers the back and couldn't hold up the eagles' front four specifically went out there are continued to be the ones that we're gonna go off either with their shield ironic that group what they managed to do harassing Drew Brees jar ardent lie knocked the ball loose a couple of times in the air. And whether you know was Fletcher Cox or Chris Long or grammar any of those guys. That group was exactly what we expected but unfortunately so was the back end. On the saints are unbelievable and again the parallels are are really incredible. The only Super Bowl win came in suitable for you formerly with thirteen and three and they were the number one seed in the host of the tennis championship game. In 2009 the three teams that lost to with a box of Panthers in the cowboys. In 2018 they're thirteen and three the number one seed they OC NFC championship game. And the three teams that lost to in the regular season the bucks the plant there's all trouble that's the reason it's a little incredible so we'll get in depth the team that they you'll face. In the ribs and how things have changed for the rams going forward plus. Big time decisions for the former champs. And I'm not a numbers guy but we crunch Simmons somehow the goat is even better than I thought he could possibly be a little by the way all these things just stay the same in New England gets all that Mike.

Now when you go out you cash in. What's in your wallet. There all rocking out to live and on a prayer. As the patriots were enjoying that fox grows sunshine. They absolutely destroyed the chargers I know it's his 41 to 28 but this game was a game for about five minutes because the patriots written were right down the field. Scored on their first drive. And then on the chargers next drive. It's just in the wide receiver Allen. Killed an hour now killer thank you very much Keener now movie double move once upon Gilmore and he was wide open for a touchdown elect okay we got a game. And that unfortunately by rule they have to give the ball back to the patriot edited and that ended the chargers season because the patriots scored touchdowns on their first. Four possessions of the game they've never done that three straight possessions in a postseason game they did it four straight. And then there was a muffed punt right before the half when you thought the charges might get back into it. They fell behind 35 to seven and that was your board are. I mean the insult to injury of the muffed punt. And then the ball almost out of pollen to recover writers who went out about having to go to reviewer and it looked like doing and got a new had to be taken all my god they're gonna. Nail in the coffin near 35 to seven as I tweeted out a head start the honey do list at that point you see that there was no game to watch anymore and we just. Continued and I know what time I'll drop and Tom Brady's playing the whole thing or sock and you know we're a nobody does but before wondering. Are you. Down a little bit. You know clock not being dropped. With judge Josh cornea leading receiver nodding your team anymore. So was there the thought it was down a little bit. And I duper and I was one of those I've got I've picked the chargers I thought this was Philip Rivers jeer or the way that defense is playing as well that they were gonna go to Foxboro get the win. And the New England Patriots and Tom Brady and Bill Belichick just keep slapping. Me I'm the nose like a bad dog and get back in the corner in Owen and say I'll understand how great this team this. And here real quickly it is time for straight talk brought to buy straight talk wireless best phones -- no contracts Mike to the point you're making. Junior. They beat him up. They were up 35 to seven. And Rob Gronkowski had one catch for 25 yards one catch their biggest mismatch weapon on offense. Was basically nonexistent he said he did a great job noble and thousands there right house key and is rushing attack it. It's so funny we came away from yesterday and so many people point to the day Sony Michelle had their first round. One of their first round draft picks out a Georgia the running back three touchdowns a 149 yards rushing 129 yards rushing. It's usually for him. Breakthrough for 340 yards yesterday it Tom Brady Julian adamant working whatever they wanted to get that charger defense they thoroughly outclassed them and every phase of the game. Bill Belichick early out coached Anthony Lynn in every phase of the game and I think when we look at the broader theme of the week and one of the most certainly pop a missed. The four best coach in the NFL coaching is correct I did you concede that for you pretty surely. At this point and they put at all on display in this one the patriots wore their class excel I don't understand why ever doubt Obama feel stupid that we all feel stupid for this by the way. Tom Brady said after the game yeah everyone says we suck like. Tom I get it but stop that now that nobody's saying that no one this said that we think you guys saw not one person has ever said that. Ever so let's just be clear about that for the patriots when you have gone to eight straight AFC championship games. And anyone starts predicting your demise the way we did again in the middle is I mean the way we did again this season we can all met debt that we had that conversation is the patriot dynasty over which to them is saying you guys stink like by their standards we have slighted them in the most in the way possible that you cannot due to the pages that they will not tolerate. How I watched a game certainly it's as a former player and then a lot certainly as a former defensive player. And watching new English yet it's all about you're on the line now is on the line at all about dictator who's dictating who who is. Proactive who is reactor. And as a defense who I've always wanted to be re our proactive always wanted to get after and trying to put the offense on their heels and try and not give them a good look. And a lot of times it's the offense doing that I'm watching the play's doing them running and I'm thinking. My god this San Diego defense is completely on their heels is completely a reactive defense to what's going on because of the play calling Josh McDaniels who by the way is staying. In doing or has our offensive coordinator and what he is doing from the short passes at a middle passes to running game of how he is keeping. This chargers defense guessing. Flowing one way while play goes another way keep them on their heels was incredible. Well the amazing thing about that is if you remember back to the win over the ravens the chargers did a great job with seven defensive backs right they've barely played and linebackers. They use that same formation going into this game. For almost the entire first half and the patriots were like fine and off. And off. Handoff and off the if you if you're not gonna play linebackers we are going to run on you and it was amazing we're watching the game. Sitting there get out of this defense is killing you right now they refused to get out of it it just goes to the brilliance of Belichick right. OK we saw this from you guys last week so we're gonna prepare package when we see that that that. You'll get wrapped up I'm stopping. And that's exactly what they deploy and you're right they they post things that have worked elsewhere and it's a reminder that to beat the patriots you cannot just be any one thing. Like as as malleable as the Patriot Act are you have to be just as multiple and just as willing to adapt. As they were that's why I had hope for the charges 'cause I saw they were willing to adapt against BI ravens. I didn't think they would just stop that once they got to the patriots but the pitcher it's also took stuff they saw the ravens have success with against the chargers. The patriots. And eight you mentioned is a former Robbins won in the one amateur to hold is when it comes to blitzes and stunts in the complicated things that you see going on upfront. You'll get really one or two chances to shut it down at the beginning of the game what you have to give the reason. The defense a reason to say we can't run that anymore because they see it coming and they're stopping it. Because once it has success like that you did the entire game and the chargers got those twists and stunts up front the entire game and demonstrated no ability to stop it. The entire game so and the UK and apple and all of that way you can't do any of the things that they wanted to would that fundamental flaw and. And this is where. Stats are always tell the number that you Sachs credit for two sacks were the patriotism which is nice throw to Jackson. But that does not tell the story of the amount of time that Philip Rivers was hit and man was he wine into. But I mean I get a lot of it was frustration holy smokes. Many talked as much as as as DB these talks are in this game and I know he does that anyways and talker but debt over to Sherman Oaks was the Ali complain and all the time because he was getting hit. I mean it was just flat out. Getting knocked around for the again it's the worst way as a former defensive player. You die by a thousand cuts. You know you have sort of Michelle run the ball toward fort tied for 129 larger leader receivers wide out of the backfield. Fifteen catches. Six point five per per catch him. Enough to do their brains enough to move the chains how many times I only caught a ball it was 36 he caught a seven yard rout. It is soul frustrating as a defensive player presented just snowballed to amount of pleasure on the field and the time of possession clock not your Fave. Yeah and by the way to those fifteen catches by James like he's a he's a running back he did not have a single Kerry. He had fifteen catches for 97 yards but I'm glad you brought up that point about sex because the same thing could have been said in the in the cowboys lost to the rams Saturday night. Erin Donald on the rams it on a single sack of deck press cut but they are Donald was unstoppable. In that game be absolutely destroyed so. Let's not just look at sacks as an all end all when it comes to being really good on the defensive line. And there are times when that the PT's lineup and in 21 personnel which is heavy heavy package and like fun you gonna do this thank you very much we'll take our six yards at a clip and move on. A 34 carries a 155 yards. Born half yards are on the ground for rushing touchdowns on the day and that was straight talk brought you by straight talk wireless.

I go doing go with you here is in radio is being news presented by progressive insurance or phone just onus on the shell Pennzoil performance like. It was absolute wonderful weekend on so many levels with the might. A senior getting the Walter camp man of the year award my junior doing his part for the team and coming up short and far left on the field grew silent and the rest was just you know plugging away a watchable ball have a good time. And bendable this'll calmer situation which is fast and all of us probably thought you'd has been won't get into that because the a's are upping the inning and I'm not sure it's going to be enough Wenzel said and done. A for the Heisman Trophy winner who's deciding between whether to enter the NFL draft which he has to make that declaration by today or stick to baseball Maurice. And be looking at maybe fifteen million dollars just stick around play baseball so as a lot to get into their. But listen to for for being honest about ourselves who on the weekend. War or the patriots and Tom Brady. Everything in the league is set up so. So what they're doing should not be happening. Mean free agency. The draft all the rules aren't salary cap a hard sell everything is set up so there can't be a dynasty like the dynasty were seen. And with the blow ought and I mean it was a blog of the dole to the final score sheet meaningless touchdowns on the game was out of reach it was 35 to seven perhaps seal later ball game site and knows what to close camera that was Eagles and the saint exactly. So. With them moving on when they won't play the Kansas City Chiefs in Kansas City was future hall of Famer pat amounts ultimately if CJ and your game. That means Tom Brady has now his thirteenth AFC champs to game and their eighth straight. So while we try to put that in some sort of perspective and I've got to give our I'm reading the words here. But I got to get the tip of the cap to a guy worked with for a lot of years on NFL lobbyist in researcher John parallel. Who by the way. Is that guy. He's from New Hampshire he could not be morbid TB twelve all born and he's all these but he's been all incidents like the Steve Grogan arrow OK right so Mac caring look it up kids he's been around for awhile like before they were fashionable. So apparently has been all of for awhile but if you take away 2008. Which I think is a fair thing to do because time ready blew out his knee in the first our first game one right so he did did you play off half of a game or talk about years as a starters as a starter. Tom Brady is now made the AFC championship game in thirteen. Of his seventeen. Years as a starting quarterback. With a New England Patriots in the NFL. That percentage. Of 76. And a half percent. So let's put that in some sort of perspective in other stats. The highest completion percentage of any qualified quarterback in the history the NFL is Drew Brees this year right who completed 74 point 4% of his passes. In other words. Tom Brady is more likely to appeared in AFC championship game than any quarterback in the history of the NFL is to complete a pass. Overweight kids there's more. LeBron james' career free throw percentage is 73 point two. Tom Brady is more likely to appear in an AFC championship game then LeBron James is to make a free throw. And there's more a lot more it goes all on and on and on. The Red Sox the 2018 Red Sox a word to win a home game at 70%. Winning rate. I love this when you talked about their the completion percentage of 74%. Then let's talk about an actual completed pass 05 yards downfield or less you know so nice easy pass costs five yards or more or less on the field. Was completed 73 point 7%. Of the time this year. So Brady has a better percentage than that. It's appalling it's appalling but I know the one that's going to. The most near and dear to you'd strategist who golf trade it's high five football trade on this one. Here's more likely to be in the AFC championship game and any PGA golfer was to make a putt. Between five and ten feet last season Louis U season led that with 66 point 2% these. In saying if you think about it and oh by the way what do we say about Natalie kicks you gotta make goes right America. In last year's when he eighteen fifa World Cup for the man. Penalty kicks including shootouts they've made it seventy point 6% of the time. Tom Brady is going to the AFC champs to game seven B six and a half percent of the time. It's ridiculous. Zion Williams at home we all love guy he's the next big thing in college basketball gonna be the next big thing in the NBA. He is a beast especially around the bucket in the paint. He's 74 point 1% field goal shooting in the paint Tom Brady is making the AFC championship game 76 and at present of the thought I. A lot you're gonna say well it's a team it's not just Tom Brady Tom Brady's been the constant. The amount of different players he has played with a no seventeen years as a starter and oh by the way. Not hall of fame players I mean he's played with the baker played with two right again today Randy Moss. For that incredible year yup and Rob Gronkowski is gonna rob try to think anybody else maybe Richard Seymour has risen eighty. Defected defensively maybe you'd get closer I mean there's a lot of hall very good barely Crable that he bruised right but I start off Olympia hall of famers and effect he just did not play a lot although it may be Rodney air. And maybe you know what's amazing is when you think about the way the patriots have been structured because the reason may be able to do all this. Is Tom Brady his average salary this year was fifteen million dollars like however you want a slice and I Norton's a more than that would. The way they have managed to gain this with Tom Brady's constant ability to take less. Has afforded them the opportunity to build him around but they haven't built the stars' public they go out they pick somebody else that my girlfriend on the tour. Turn over all those eight straight AFC champs two games if you look at the roster from eight years ago to now is incredible they just re cycled through all the time and all those numbers. We're stats incredible brought you on my computer career dot edu. Training for a better life.
