Dear Pats Nation.
What's going on? It's your boy, Ray, and welcome to my little show here on DP and Sports Talk.
What's going on? Pats Nation Welcome to your one place to find everything.
New England Patriots from a dedicated Patriots fan.
DPM is a brand created by Patriot fans for Patriots fans, and it is Monday night, January the 13th.
I know that everybody is busy watching the national championship, but for anybody who comes on in here to say hello, talks and patriots, I totally, totally appreciate it.
And I hope that we can have a good time and maybe you wait until after the game.
Maybe you just decided to come in and join it and watch a replay.
That's all good, too, and you can always check out bits and pieces of it over on YouTube.
What's happening, People? I am just having an absolutely great day today, getting all ready for just life.
I guess you could say what's happening.
Yeah, hope that everybody is doing well on this Monday.
I want to talk about my little bit of a lineup tonight.
I'm going to be addressing the ridiculous Andy Dalton to the Patriots.
Antonio Brown is just the comedic gift that keeps on giving.
I want to talk a little bit about David Andrews, the Patriots center being really optimistic about the 2020 season.
What's gonna happen? No to this year's replacement, Ted Caress.
The Patriots are going on their annual rebuild as they rebuild the 2020 season.
And I read a great article today by Jeff.
How and when I talk about that a little bit and some of the cool things that they talked about.
And then I want to talk about Josh McDaniels shutting down the Cleveland Browns.
Absolutely ridiculous demands from him as he went about, basically shutting down the Cleveland Browns because it's ridiculous, and we'll get more into that at the time.
Come for what's going on. People.
Ah, man, it's just one of those days, you know, this weekend was a stress free football weekend, but of course I'm missed watching our New England Patriots play.
I wish we could have watched him play.
It's amazing to me how many opposing fan bases believe that I am salty when I talk about their team.
I'm so over the Patriots losing to the Titans, and I mean that with every ounce of truth I have.
If I'm lying, may my integrity be struck to the ground people because I really couldn't care less anymore.
Football is football.
Football is entertainment, and I talk about that all the time.
Football, even though football is a big part of my life, even though the New England Patriots are a big part of my life and it's, you know, I've been able to make a little bit of a living off of it and build a little bit of a fan base and get into the public's eye talking about football.
At the end of the day, I'm not validated by what my team does on the field, and I've and look, I've been on an absolute roll this week on Twitter like I really have been.
I'm gonna I'm gonna admit it.
I just It's number one that she's fans are at an all time like high when it comes to paranoia, uh, to being sensitive to being soft.
I've been blocked by more Patriot fans ever arm or Kansas City fans ever than I ever have been in the season, What's amazing to me is how the Patriots weren't even playing this weekend and yet came to city fans somehow found a way to compare their game or talk smack the Patriot fans.
I mean, the only reason I even talk about cheese fans because they talked to me so much.
I'm writing something about Aaron Rodgers yesterday on Twitter and getting absolutely attacked.
I mean, I don't consider people being tough on Twitter is attacked, but getting absolutely talk by cheese fans were just like, Just enjoy your victory, man. Justin Voight.
Enjoy your victory and move on with your life.
But the complex that they have and I mean, how much is it gonna hurt, too, when they go and lose to the Titans at home next week again the Lamar Hunt Trophy, the trophy named after their own owner? How are they going to feel when not just gets ripped out of their hands again? And they got to deal with a former Patriot Mike Vrabel, celebrating with his team, killing the Kansas City Chiefs again.
Gotta love football.
God, I I even love our fans over in the chief's kingdom, who believe that Kansas City is gonna be the next dynasty in the NFL.
I love our fan base is everywhere, and it's really, really kind of depressing to me.
There's only three football games left for this season.
I'm telling you, I've said it 100 times.
The football off season is the longest off season of all the sports, and then it just ends the quickest.
And I start jonesing for football the weekend after the Super Bowl.
But maybe this year we'll get a bit of a replacement.
Maybe we'll be able to watch some XFL.
Ah, the XFL has become a joke on this channel.
The XFL has become a a bit of, ah, poke around.
But we're starting to take a little bit serious has been a lot of smack talk, especially between the inner circle.
But all are different teams, and I'm currently working on, um, bringing on a guy to do a collaboration with here I live.
Excuse me? My pneumonia.
Still getting me, um, to do collaboration here, Live on SportsCastr, where I will be discussing everything except fellow be asked him all about XFL questions and all that kind of stuff.
So it's ah It should be a pretty good time, man.
I'm feeling good today.
National championship is on television.
I'm giving up a little bit of my time doing this.
It's okay, though.
I have a streaming in the background as I talk about our patriots.
Ah, it was really ramped up to being a good game, and I think it's gonna be a good game.
I know a lot of people were very high on LSD.
You going into this game, and I tried to remind people and I wasn't taking nothing away from borough.
I wasn't taking nothing away from from L s U but I still believe that O. S.
U was number one in the country and we saw what Clemson did to them, and I think they were a little bit discredited about how good they actually are.
And ah, man, it's just not just watch someone get the hell ripped off 17 to 14.
Clemson's exactly the type of game I think we thought it would be if they can get another score here, take a 10 point lead.
Really put some pressure on L s u that be Ah, it be a thing man.
I also assume that everybody who makes a pass tonight or receives a pass tonight the Patriots or Patri fans are gonna want Bill Belichick, too.
It's okay, you know, it is what it is.
But I think now what I want to do is I want to bring in a little bit welcome everybody who's come into the show here today because dear Pats Nation, it's your point, Ray.
And welcome to DP on Sports Talk.
Live here on SportsCastr and thank you to everybody out there who's watching portions of these replay up on YouTube.
And what I want to do right now is I want to address this absolute ridiculous rumor about Bill Belichick being interested in bringing Andy Dalton to being the New England Patriots quarterback next season.
I know that Peter King talked about it.
That's where it came from.
I cannot believe the national attention in the and the media attention that it has gotten.
I mean, when you have Tom Brady as the potential starting quarterback for your team, Tom Brady, the guy who has done everything for this franchise, the guy that has won you six Super Bowl titles.
If you're moving on from him for Andy Dalton.
Look, I've been accused of the past of being way too positive on the Patriots giving Bill Ballot Shack the benefit of the doubt when he doesn't deserve it.
I've been accused of just, you know, being too much of a homer.
Even I even I would have a very difficult time trying to come up with anything positive about Andy Dalton joining the New England Patriots.
Now, one of the rumors that I'm not one of them is.
One of the theories that's been presented to me is that perhaps the Patriots want to use Andy Dalton as a stop gap between Tom Brady and his eventual successor.
Somebody would probably come out of the draft, and as much as they tried to make that theory makes sense as much as they try to convince me what they were saying had any sort of factor, any sort of thing that made any sense whatsoever, I thought, Why would you go with Andy Dalton as your stopgap? Andy Dalton is not gonna win your Super Bowl.
You might as well go with Jared Stick em If that's your plan.
If your plan is Hey, we gotta wait a little bit.
We want to stay somewhat competitive.
We gotta wait until it's the right time in the draft.
We don't have a second round draft pick this year.
We got a, you know, do other things.
Why in the hell And like any, like the NFL, is a copycat league, and the media always tries to look at what's working around the NFL, and they try to copy it.
We saw it last year with Patrick Mahomes.
When he came in the Wonder boy, the one a child, the new shine of the of the NFL.
They started talking about, Oh, you got to get players that can play like my homes That could do the no looks that can do the side arms that can do all that kind of cool stuff.
You need a guy like Patrick Mahomes, and then Lemar Jackson comes out this year.
Everybody forget about Patrick.
My homes and everybody gets on the Lamar Jackson train.
They all start talking about how Lamar Jackson is the guy you need to find that running back.
You know, uh, running back quarterback hybrid.
This is a mobile quarterback league.
Lamar Jackson is setting the standard of quarterbacks, and then I'm starting to see comparisons today like Well, look, you know, when they're talking about Andy Dalton of the pages, they're going well, look what Ryan Tannehill is done with the Tennessee Titans.
You know, after being on a you know, an abysmal time after after, I mean no success in Miami.
He's 60 minutes away from going to the Super Bowl with the Tennessee Titans.
Ryan Tannehill threw the ball 14 times against the Baltimore Ravens the other night, 14 times he threw the ball.
I mean, I think a landed.
Roberts played more snaps at fullback a game than an adult, then Andy Dalton through there than Ryan Tannehill threw the ball.
If you bring any thought that the Patriots don't have Derrick Henry sitting there waiting for you, you don't have who probably the best running back in the NFL, who's gonna put up almost 200 yards a game.
You still need a guy that's that's able to lead an offense.
And let's not pretend that Andy Dalton hasn't had weapons over the years.
Like, why are we gonna pretend that Annie Andy Dalton's like Like he's had no help in Cincinnati.
Oh, but put him in New England, put him in Bala Check system, Get him a couple of wide receiver threats.
A guy at A. J. Green.
I mean, that's the guy that we keep talking about.
Imagine what Tom Brady could do with an a J. Green.
We wanted the Patriots so badly to trade for a J Green issue.
We're bagging ballot check, Please trade for a J Green before they finally, You know, I don't know.
You're gonna call it conceded or whatever it may be.
And they decided to go with ah, Mohammed Sunu like, I just don't understand the logic.
That's my problem, you know? And I hear And I I get this whole look every offseason.
There's always all these.
You know? What if the Patriots do this? Here's a rumor about check.
Wants to do that.
Excuse me, guys. Pneumonia is killing me.
Um, you know, we all heard like the Odell Beckham Jr rumors for two years that the Patriots want to make a move for him.
Turns out there's a little bit of truth to that.
You know whatever but man like Andy Dalton, Andy Dalton, of all people.
And again, there's no scenario to me that makes sense to bring in Andy Dalton into the Patriots.
Why bring him in as a stop gap when you already have Jared sit him in your system? If you're looking for a young athletic quarterback who makes good decisions on the field, why would you bring in Andy Dalton? I mean, I'd rather than go after somebody like Teddy Bridgewater.
If you're not gonna bring Tom Brady back or if you're looking for mobile, How about RG three? Like, I don't understand it and all right, so, like, I'm sitting there like Okay, so again, care me out.
So Peter King comes up with this theory? Fine.
I mean, he says a lot of things.
He got Spy Gate wrong.
He got the flake gate wrong.
I mean, King is King has had a poor history talking about the New England Patriots, But does he really think like, let's talk about for a second here? Let's talk about the upcoming free agents because don't forget Andy Dalton.
I don't think it's a free agent.
I think that patriots would have toe the Patriots have to trade for him.
The Patriots would have to give something up to Cincinnati in order to bring him onto the team.
I hear a lot of rumors that Drew Brees is gonna hit the free agent market.
Philip Rivers is probably I mean, the same caliber kind of quarterback is Andy Dalton would bring you.
Teddy Bridgewater is gonna be a free agent if you're looking for young and athletic and mobile for someone who needs a change of scenery, Marcus Mariota is gonna be a free agent.
And I'm not saying that these are the guys to go for.
I'm not saying that that I want to see any of these guys, But if you're not gonna bring back Tom Brady if you're not gonna go young, if you're not gonna draft, if you're not gonna use Jared State and was already in your system if you're just going to ignore all of those facts than my God, if you're gonna pick a veteran, pick somebody else.
But I'm just looking at this list of free agents coming up and I can name at least five that I'd rather see on this team then Andy Dalton.
I would rather Philip Rivers.
I would much rather Teddy Bridgewater.
I don't think Jamie's Winston's gonna hit free agency, but Jameis Winston It's why I'm not talking about Drew Brees either, because I don't think he's gonna hit the market is probably gonna play for the Saints.
I'd rather case Keenum and cold McCoy under Bill Belichick.
I would rather Matt Maur if you're looking for an old transition player.
We saw what more did with Kansas City this year when when Patrick Mahomes was out.
I'm not gonna go as far as saying I'd rather Blake Bortles over Andy Dalton, but I don't see a world.
I do not see a world that, and he thought that Number 14 is leading the New England Patriots onto the field.
And if we live in that world next year and I'm trying to put a spin on it, and I'm trying to talk about how great Andy Dalton is, I want you all to call me out, and I want you to remind me that I told you to call me out because mark my words right now, I will be disgusted.
It will be the first time in 20 years, it's gonna be in Bill. I don't trust.
I've always trusted built balance check in every decision that he makes.
But Mike, Andy Dalton And the only reason I even decided to bring it up on the show tonight, the only reason that I decided to talk about it was because it's becoming a thing away for the national media.
I'm starting to read things on musket fire and Patriots wire.
You know, pro Patriots publications, writers that I respect, making the case for why Andy Dalton should be the quarterback of the New England Patriots.
I'm the voice of optimism.
I'm the voice of never getting down on the Patriots on the voice of we're gonna be a dynasty.
If we had three players in a bag and Nichols as a coach, there is zero reason.
Zero reason that I, your boy Ray, DP and Sports talk Dear Pats Nation.
However you know me, there is no reason that I should be the voice of reason ever.
I'm obnoxious, I'm arrogant.
I believe that the Patriots can do no wrong, but this would be the wrong ist of all the wrong decisions.
You could possibly make.
And I cannot believe that I have now spent over 12 minutes talking about the possibility of Andy Dalton coming to the New England Patriots.
I just have too much faith in Bill Belichick to believe that Andy Dalton will ever be a practice squad quarterback with the Patriots.
I mean, they would have to trade for him.
What the hell would they have to give up? I don't know.
We all know that Dolphins days are done.
The starting quarterback of the Cincinnati Bengals is playing in the championship is playing in the national championship today.
But I would not be able to get over Bill Belichick giving up a draft pick, giving up anything Brandy Dalton.
Which is why anybody was talking about it on Twitter.
Any Patriots fan who believes that this could come into fruition.
Any Patriot fan that thinks there's a possibility that Andy freakin Dalton, we'll be coming to the Patriots.
You need to just chill because it's not gonna happen.
Believe me, it's not gonna happen.
It's absolutely, positively impossible that it ever happens.
And I mean, I guess at this point, what else can I say that hasn't already been said.
It would be tough, like I can only imagine what my reaction would be to Andy Dalton coming to the Patriots.
All right, let me talk a little bit here about my boy Antonio Brown.
It was so elegantly said to me today by Rhino, Antonio Brown is the gift that keeps on giving.
It's just insane to me the meltdown that this guy is having, and I'm gonna be honest with you every time I see something happen and I'll get into what happened today.
But every time I see Hey Antonio Brown Meltdown, Antonio Brown horribly written speech and Antonio Brown whatever, I just feel the need to think about that.
Hit that perfect put on him back in in the playoffs.
I think it was back in, what, 14 4015? Because a part of me sits here and thinks he's got to be dealing with something, whether it's mental health, whether it's some sort.
Ah, c t e problem.
But this guy literally today threw a bag of ****s.
I the mother of his Children, and I'll tell you, you know, I wish wish I was making that up.
I wish that that wasn't a true story.
I wish that that was the fake media.
But it wasn't this guy, quite literally.
You got into an argument with his baby mama, mother of his Children, and I called the police, wanted her arrested, apparently try toe.
I don't steal, is battling or something.
And the wind got a literal bag of ****s and threw it at her while filming in releasing the whole thing to the world to see.
I mean, look, the human being in me, the father and me, the social worker and me, I'm just like my God, those poor, poor Children.
Because the baby mama doesn't look like no winner either.
And I know that he was taking a lot of heat for today as he should, but she doesn't look like it.
Like like somebody I would want to associate with in life is that I don't know, batter me.
Maybe, but it's the truth.
I don't know how you guys feel about her.
I mean, she looks knots to me.
I mean, if you've been with that guy like you have three kids with them like either he hasn't been crazy his whole life, and this really is a new thing.
I don't know if money got to this guy.
I don't know what it is, but it's like daily daily with this guy, and he's screaming FT NFL and all this kind of stuff.
I'm like, you want to return to football? You want to be a professor? You're gonna call out Sean Payton, calling it a publicity stunt, bringing you in people trying to live off your name.
You're throwing a bag of ****s at your baby, Mama A B, I beg you, man.
Honest to God, I beg you, go see a doctor.
This has nothing to do with the accusations against you.
This has nothing to do with anything.
This literally has to do with what I'm seeing right now because when you get to the point in your life that sure that the number one you have a bag of ****s lying around your house just waiting for a situation to throw it at somebody when that's the kind of when that's the point of your life that you're in and then you decide The perfect moment to do that is to throw it at the mother of your three Children while your three Children are standing right there.
Antonio, my friend, my brother, the man who was supposed to save the New England Patriots this season.
The man that people say if he would have been cut, they wouldn't have been eliminated by the Tennessee Titans.
Think before you act, kids.
We all do dumb things.
We all say stupid stuff.
I spent two days telling everybody that I have a rich wife.
Probably not the smartest thing I ever did.
Probably a little but air again.
But I was just trying to make a point to a cheese fan.
But I can promise all of my fan bases in DP in sports like, I promise all you I do not and I will not ever throw a bag index of my baby Mama, I promise you that it's not gonna happen, because what kind of man would I be besides an idiot? Let's get back to talking about some football.
Why don't we and I want to talk about TV, the injuries and I want to talk about Ted cares.
So as we all know David Andrews.
Uh, Mr Season, this area, blood clots on his lungs.
And, ah, I got to give Ted cares a lot of credit, man.
I didn't know how he was going to respond to things.
I don't know how he was gonna do coming in for, Ah, David Andrews, and you're a really good job.
But David Andrews says his health is getting better.
I didn't realize that there was even a possibility that he wouldn't return next season.
I thought he'll take the season off and then he'll be back next year.
I didn't realize that there was.
This is actually a thing like he's actually he actually needs to be okay to play like and I know that sounds ridiculous, but of course he has to be okay to play.
But he actually there's health things he needs to go through.
But he says, feeling optimistic thing rather today and that got me thinking about Ted cares and I thought to myself, What do you do with Ted Cares And when I get into the whole Patriots 2020 rebuild thing, I'll probably get more into it.
But you know, Ted cares did a really solid job.
I think this year and people talk about.
You know how Big Andrews injury was and it was.
But I think that that one was mitigated the most by the plate.
Ted Caress and I, and he's an interior guy.
He's not an exterior guard guy.
Marshall Newhouse probably would have been the Patriots of Patriots lineman this season if even if David Andrews wasn't hurt because they bring, they brought cares and to be an interior guy.
So I don't know.
I'm just wondering to myself, I'm kind of wondering out loud.
I think it's without a shadow of a doubt that he's done enough to get himself starter money.
Um, Ted cares, that is, and I think that the Patriots should, really, even though David Andrews seems to be on the right track to recovery, I really do believe that the Patriots should consider bringing back Ted cares.
I really do, because they got another problem happening coming up, and that's Joe Tune is gonna be a free agent this year, and I'm gonna talk more about that in the Patriots 2020 sort of offseason rebuild.
I don't know if I if I named it properly, but Joe Tune he's gonna demand a lot of money.
One of the best interior lineman in the league this year.
He was probably leave the Onley nonissue the Patriots had.
Maybe him and Marcus can and even markets can and got be a few times, and I just wondered to myself if it's time that you might have to move on from Ted.
Cares are from Joe to me.
I don't know, Dear Pat Station's going on your boy Ray.
Welcome to DP and Sports Locked.
Thank you to everybody who is here.
Live on SportsCastr right now.
And welcome to everybody who's watching the replay on YouTube.
Thank you so much for tuning in here to support the DP and sport socks when we talk about the Patriots every day.
And right now I want to talk about the Patriots yearly rebuilt.
And as I talked about this, I'm wondered if maybe I titled this incorrectly.
But I want to talk about the page.
I guess it would be the retooling that the 2020 retool that's the pages do.
And this is one of the more interesting free agency's the Patriots have had to go through.
You know, we just got finished talking about Tom Brady in that ridiculous rumor with Andy Dalton coming to the Patriots.
We know it's not gonna happen, but the Patriots still have to sign Tom Brady back, and I think that that's the most important piece that they have to do.
Um, I think with Josh McDaniels not taking the job in Cleveland, I think that was that increased the Patriots opportunity and increase the Patriots chance of bring it back Tom Brady.
But it all starts there.
And now the Patriots are gonna be coming, and I think with about $49 million cap space, and when we talk about cap space, there is a way that they can manipulate it a little bit and free some stuff up.
I think that, you know, you could extend Dont'a Hightower.
If you extend High Tower, you can probably, you know, three years.
If you said in three years you could probably fishable $45 million out of there for the next for this season, um, with a big back end contract and start figured out salary cap in 2023.
Um, I think when you look at a guy like Iran Harmon.
You could try toe free up one or two million by extending him and kind of restructuring his contract, you know, then there's players that you could talk about releasing.
I mean, is it time that the Patriots promote um, Damian Harris and release Rex Burkhead? I've been a big fan of Birkhead, but by releasing him, I think you can free up another $3 million cap space because one of the ways of getting Tom Brady back is you're gonna have to offer him up something more than they have already.
And the Patriots already have a slew of players that they need to address.
And I think what? We're going to see what the Patriots this year is.
Bilbao check attempt to make the offense better, But that means we're also going to see a digression by the defense.
I look at a guy like Kyle Van Noy, and when I look at priority signings for the Patriots, Jamie Collins is one.
I think that Devin McCourty is a priority.
Obviously, Tom Brady.
Ted Caress is a priority signing Calvin noise gonna demand a lot of money.
Kyle Van Noy has already said he's gonna go and try to get his money.
And unfortunately, you're the Patriots in a salary cap system.
Because don't blame Robert Kraft for this because I completely believe that if there was no salary cap, Robert Kraft would gladly go out and spend boatloads of money on his team and and make it like mad and with, you know, franchise mode with the with salary caps off.
But that's not the reality of the National Football League.
I just don't think there's money to re sign Kyle van Noy.
I mean, Tom Brady, I figure, is gonna demand anywhere between 20 to $25 million.
And if you're the Patriots, are you looking at it thinking, man, you know what we are? Best chance to win is with Tom Brady.
I think the Patriots best chance to win is with Tom Brady.
But if you're gonna bring back Tom Brady, you've got to bring back weapons now the big names on the market right now, obviously a J Green, but I mean, we're looking at about a $15 million contract for Hamlet.
Fitzgerald is available.
He said. He's not gonna leave Arizona.
He loves Arizona.
If the Patriots begged him.
Maybe they could get him for eight million.
I mean, I don't think I'm Mari Cooper's gonna hit free agency.
Devin Funchess May it? I don't know.
Emmanuel Sanders will probably hit the open market.
I think that the Patriots can an attack.
I mean, you're not gonna go and re signed Philip Door set, but you signed Philip Door sat last year for 2.
When you're starting talk 15,000,011 million When you have like, let's say maximum after restructuring contracts $55 million your replacement is gonna take half of it or Tom Brady's gonna take half of it and you still gotta sign interior linemen.
You still got a sign? You know, I mean, wide receivers, you got to keep your defense somewhat intact.
You got to address the tight end situation, and I mean, Patriot fans made it clear.
I think Tom Brady's made it clear Brady doesn't wanna work with rookies.
So it's like you're gonna go out and get rookie tight ends and more rookie receivers that you're gonna build around Tom Brady.
Even if you have d came at CAFS available O R marquees, Browns or any kind of players like that.
I still think that Brady is gonna want veteran receivers, and the one place I will say I'm always in a Bilby trust kind of guy.
Drafting receivers has not been a strength of Bill Belichick.
The guy's not perfect.
Sou um that means that the Patriots are going to be in the tight end market.
I think that you have to trade for Eifert are sorry Sign Eifert, who I believe is going to be a free agent after this year.
And they're Yes, there's injury issues with him.
But I think Tyler Eifert of everybody who's available over Vernon Davis over Erica Bron.
I think you signed Tyler effort.
Hope that his injury problems are gonna be too bad.
And I think you gotta call Tampa Bay again, man, and you got us talk about Howard.
Then you can release release Matt Lacoste, which is gonna free up about $2 million in salary.
Cap Ryan is Oken.
Be your number three and then you try to get maybe in Emmanuel Sanders and try to land either in a J.
Green or Larry Fitzgerald is something of that sort hope that with bringing in a big wide out and you need a wide out guy.
You don't need a slot receiver, you need a wideout.
But if you could bring in a big wide out, maybe that opens up Adelman and Mohammed Sunu a little bit.
You don't double team settlement.
There's an opportunity with the money available to re sign some key defensive players and bring in some weapons for Tom Brady.
But they have to do it smartly, and then you use the draft and the draft is where you're going to address the offensive line.
It's where you're going to address, you know, linebacker.
If you're losing Kyle Van Noy, if you do end up losing, you know another guy I thought about you could release you could you could save $4 million if you if you were to release Jason McCord E.
If he doesn't retire, if he does retire, then you're eating that cap.
But I think that you could very easily go out and release him and put you on Williams in there to take his spot.
I thought Williams did a fine job against Tennessee.
I think he's ready to be a starting cornerback in the league.
You still Jonathan Jones? You still Jacey Jackson, who still have stuff on Gilmore? John Williams would be your fourth corner.
I don't think you need Jason McCord is so you can take little steps back on defense.
Look, I've just conceded removing on from Kyle Dan.
Oi, I don't like it.
I don't want to move on from from Vanoy.
I love Kyle the Illinois, but I think that that's the reality.
That's where we live right now is that Van Noy is probably finished and probably done, and I mean, it is what it is.
I mean, I don't know what you want me to say.
The reality's reality is Van Noy is finished.
He's gonna cost too much money and the Patriots of too many things to address.
Jamie Collins has already made his money, So I really do think that you can bring Collins in on the cheap again.
Maybe not as cheap as he was this year.
There's some good defensive ends and some good defensive tackles in the draft this year.
I think that's where you're gonna have to address this kind of stuff OS.
You had some really good defensive tackles coming out.
L s u has a couple good defensive tackles coming out.
There's a lot of good things coming out of the draft this year, and that's where you have to address it.
And then I think that maybe you have to move on from Joe Tooni, Which sucks, because I think Joe Tune is one of the best offensive lineman in the NFL.
But I think he's gonna demand, and I mean, it's a trend now.
Every year the Patriots lose a big offensive linemen because of money, and I know people get mad and you call Bill ballot check cheap.
But guys, look at the cap.
Stop ignoring the salary cap.
The reality is the Patriots can't afford all these guys.
I know we wish they could.
I know we love to just play a little.
It's not fantasy football, though, where you can have all the top players in the league on your team.
The fact of the matter is it costs real money and there's a real cap that that you got a hit.
I also think, though, that Ted caress is good enough to filling that void.
He won't be Joe tuning, but with David Andrews coming back, I think Ted cares proved enough last year that he can be a starting interior linemen.
And I think he can replace Tooni.
And you have Shack, Mason and Joe to me on the left and right with Andrews in the middle, Isaiah winning Marcus Cannon at your tackle positions.
I like that offensive line and then you build through that.
You build through the draft, you have.
Can you stay? Who's gonna be coming off the I R.
Who could possibly be a backup? I think Germaine Alumina is still under contract.
He could be a backup interior guy for you, so there's a lot of options.
The Patriots have it, the offensive line Mark and I think when we look at last year's team and the Super Bowl team from the year before, the two big guys, we're gonna have to lose this year's Kyle Van Noy and Joe to me.
I can live with that.
If we can re sign Tom Brady, if we can bring in at least one solid receiver, whether it's a Sanders, whether it's Ah A J green.
Whether it's a Larry Fitzgerald, if you can sign Tyler, I fret and trade for a Howard or sign of Hooper, who's gonna cost a lot of money.
But bring in and come go back to a tight end catching system.
Like when you had Gronkowski on the team.
If you could do all that, I don't think that, you know, losing Jason McCord.
The losing Kyle Vanoy.
It's gonna be a bit of a setback for the Patriots, but I don't think on the defense of wise, but it's gonna be that big.
They may not be playing at historical levels like they were the beginning of this season, but they'll be good enough and you'll have a balanced Patriots team.
The Patriots are really in a position to be good, and I love the running backs.
I love Sony. Michelle.
I love James White.
We got to see what's gonna happen with Damian Harris, and I think we could move on from Rex Burkhead and I'm a brick head Fam and I got his autograph jersey right there.
But I've got to think with our heads, not our hearts.
It starts with signing Tom Brady, bringing in a receiver bringing in tight ends.
Signed Ted Caress built some depth behind the line.
Let Van Noy walk.
Let Tooni walk. Released.
Jason McCord, e re signed call INS re signed.
If Matthew Slater decides not to retire, you re sign Slater and you go from there.
And I'm trying to think now of any other Patriots are must re signs because definitely not Philip Door set.
At least in my opinion, I think Nate Abner's probably a guy if you can get Danny Shelton cheap enough, but I'm sure he's earned some sort of pay increase.
I think if you can't get Slater back, you have to get Justin Bethel back and be great if you could get both.
But try to figure out how to get one of them.
I mean, you could resign James for Nets, as as depth.
Another guy you have to re sign.
That has to be on the must re signed list is Landon Roberts and probably Adam Butler.
Two guys coming off the low rookie contract that you're gonna have to pay.
There's a lot of money the Patriots have to spend this year just a build the team they already have let alone ad so got up.
You know, to make an omelette, you gotta break some eggs.
Unfortunately, eggs are probably gonna be Van Noy, Birkhead, Jason McCord, e and to me.
But if it's for the greater good, then it's better, all right.
And lastly, and I want Oh, just make sure it's lastly, it is Lastly, I want to talk about Josh McDaniels Came out, I think.
Was it yesterday that Cleveland decided to go with what's his name over in, ah, spin asking or whatever from, Ah, Minnesota, Minnesota and ah, from what I've heard, because I always said that on paper, Josh McDaniels and the Cleveland Browns looked like the best fit in the National Football League.
It was Josh McDaniels that said he couldn't live under the parameters that ownership gave him over in Cleveland, and it was one of the most insane sort of demands I ever heard.
So number one, the coach would have to submit his game plan every Friday to be scrutinized by the team owner and by the Animal ****ytics Department.
The owner wanted somebody on the ****ytics department with a headset on during the game, and there would be an owner coach meeting every Monday after game day.
Who the hell could work under that? And now I'm seeing rumors today that Wade Phillips is ah, you know, being considered as the defensive coordinator, that so they want to bring it manner.
Wade Phillips, an old school football guy, a gut check guy.
Could you imagine him trying to navigate the ****ytics and the demands of this kind of ownership? Basically, the coach would have almost no say in his own plan.
And I've said it and we see it.
I know Jerry Jones built championship teams, but he's becoming a senile old man when owners get too involved in the day to day operations of a team.
This is what happens and and the problem is, is the N.
If it's it's not a business at all.
For some of these owners, it really isn't because the NFL is gonna make billions of dollars regardless, and they're gonna make billions of billions of dollars and they're gonna have a good time and it's like it's like it's a hobby for them toe on their teams, then go be re alive.
General managers and meddle in the day to day operations of their team and whatnot.
And you just think like my God, man.
Otherwise, I think that job was McDaniels, But what did we talk about? A lot to see.
We talked about how teams they're gonna have to sell McDaniels on why he should leave New England.
Yeah, I'm sure McDaniels want some sort of legacy is a head coach.
But you know, his wife and his kids.
I mean, these kids based grew up in New England.
His wife likes the area.
He grew up as a coach with the Patriots.
He's coaching her bill ballot check.
Who's been a mentor like a father to him.
Yeah, he has six Super Bowls with the Patriots, and you're gonna tell him.
Hey, man, you got to submit your game plan to me in the ****ytics department every Friday, and we're gonna have ah, a meeting every Monday after game day so I can criticize you as a coach and break down everything you did wrong.
How the hell do you coach a team like that? And I think Cleveland Obama, Cleveland Browns fan man, I'm upset.
I am upset by how ridiculous that sounds.
It reminds me of Draft Day, when the owner was trying to force Kevin Costner into drafting that was running back.
Whatever first overall in our quarterback, first overall, he ends up dropping the guy that could've went, like 15th and the rent their 20th in the first round.
The linebacker And I mean, it reminds me that same owner because I don't think Josh McDaniels would get his Kevin Costner moment to prove the owner wrong and prove that he's still, you know, one of the And I mean, it's I don't know.
I just I don't understand how you operate like that.
I don't know how anybody could be successful in that kind of environment.
I think it's crazy.
I think it's ridiculous.
And I also think it's crazy and ridiculous that the national championship is on and you guys are watching me.
But because of that, I have so appreciate you guys.
I was really Bill, I really believed I was gonna have, like, three people on my stream tonight, I thought and I thought about it today, man, I thought, How do I compete with the national championship? Hell, I didn't want to watch me tonight.
I wanted to watch the national championship.
So the fact that you guys came in and to then I really, really appreciate that.
And with 21 seconds left in the half, L s u was up 2117 and it looks like it's 1/3 and 10 for L s u here for Clemson.
Know for Unless you hear, let's see what they can do here.
Can they put some more pressure as the half comes down to an end? Let's finish off this half together, bro.
Takes the snap, he's gonna run it himself.
Look at this kid.
Look at this kid.
The 10 gets a great block.
It's all the way down about the six yard line.
Gets out of bounds with 14 seconds.
That was like a 25 yard run.
Cincinnati is going to love this kid.
Absolutely love this kid.
14 seconds left in the half here.
I mean, if l a few scores here, there's gonna be a lot of pressure on cleanse and coming into the half I mean a touchdown.
You gotta try to home the three here.
If your clubs and let him complete a pass and take him out inbounds and run the clock because I don't think l s u has any timeouts.
Laugh today in the end zone. Easy.
Touchdown, Mr Moss on riel.
LSD goes up 27 to 10 probably 20 to 10.
And that's just about it, man.
Got another half to go.
So I'm gonna go have some a little bit stronger than a coffee and thanks, SportsCastr, for giving me the opportunity to come out here each in every night and talking to Pats Nation.
I really appreciate I appreciate past nation coming in here and football fans from all over coming in and listening to me talk without all you I'd just be a big, fat patriot fans screaming into a microphone.
But it could be worse.
That could be a Cleveland Browns fans.
So there we go, past nation.
I will be back tomorrow at 9:30 p.m.
Make sure you fall if you don't make sure you follow me on Twitter and Instagram at DP An underscore Reagan.
That's at DP An underscore Ray, I have been on fire on Twitter.
I've been just getting blocked like a maniac.
Um, I've had the mute half my conversations.
Not because I'm getting a little Ah, a Ah, you know, not because I'm sensitive, but I'm trying to watch the television show with my wife.
My fault not butting thing, but nothing but nothing but nothing but the thing.
Nothing. Get claustrophobic when I'm gonna tie.
Like to deal things one after another, you know, let me deal with you.
Then I'll deal with you.
Is he what I went after buried today? He retweeted me and not just, like, went ballistic on my phone.
But I want to thank Barry because my my subscriber ship also went up a cz well, but I think I had, like, 30 responses by his little minions And, like, six and 1/2 seconds.
So, uh, yeah, that's where we're at.
And, uh, but the health people tell me off for telling me off for zero reason whatsoever.
It's a Patriots fan.
Probably my title is Ah, Andy Dalton.
That's what it is.
Chiefs fans are looking for cheese fans from last night to see what I mean.
See what I mean? See what I mean, and Ah, yes.
Did my title Andy Dalton to the Patriots.
People aren't happy by the title.
I get that so I don't respond to titles, though.
Ever in my life.
You I shouldn't either.
I know you guys love me.
I don't need your validation.
Oh, I love it. I appreciate it.
What? Uh, you know what, man? Here's the thing, guys.
There's some people out there Berries like this is other people.
If they don't get the validation on Twitter and all that kind of stuff I mean, their life isn't complete.
Every time one of his accounts get suspended, he goes in tow, meltdown mode and all that kind of stuff for me.
This all ended tomorrow.
I would thank all of you because I really do appreciate it.
Whaley all you guys, I really do appreciate all you, Joe.
I appreciate you, Zach.
Chris, Marc, appreciate all you guys.
But if this all went away tomorrow, I got a purpose in life.
Still, man, And I hope you all do too.
I don't need validation.
I don't need people telling me I'm great or standing up for me on Twitter to make my life feel better.
And I see these people like, bury that need, that they strive for that validation.
I just like that fun.
I like that fun on here.
I like that fun on Twitter.
I like that fun in life.
And I don't think you all like to have fun too.
And don't feel like you need anybody out there to validate you.
That's gonna be my party message.
Don't feel like you need anybody out there to give you a pat on the back and tell you that you're a great person or you're really smart or you're really cool.
Your whatever you really are, live your **** life the way you wanna live your **** life and just **** everybody else.
You know, it's because the moment that you feel like you need that validation the moment that you feel like you need people to tell you that you're a good person or that you're smart or that you're this it's difficult to move on, man.
It's difficult to move on in life and trust me, you can't do what I do, you know? I mean and not have a thick skin because I get destroyed from every different direction, from opposing fan bases from Patriot fans.
You know, I get it from everywhere.
What I like to do is I don't get upset at that stuff.
I laugh at it because I know I got my little core group.
It's not big when you compare it to other people, but it's my little core group that appreciates me.
And I appreciate you guys and I don't need people to pat me on the back.
And I don't need people to be nice.
I don't even eat people.
Stand up for me and the comments on my YouTube page.
I'm like, man, **** it, let him talk.
You know, people stand up for me on YouTube or on Twitter.
I'm like, Man, let him talk.
Who cares? You know what? If this makes them feel better about their life, because you can tell when people are having fun and you can tell when people it just mean spirited.
And when people are having fun, all respond to the people having fun, man, you know, And I mean, they're talking some good **** like some of them have some good lines.
Some of them really put me down, but you can tell it's all in fun and I'll just drive it right back home, you know, and we'll go at it.
But then he got the people come in and you just see, like, this is how they get their validation in life.
They don't have it in their real life.
So they come in and they just tried to destroy you on Twitter.
So their little fans of the little friends on Twitter, all 200 subscribers or what? Our followers there, That cargo a looker You at whoever number one? Don't be one of those people.
Number two. Don't let those people bother you.
Just mute them and move on.
And the only reason you mute.
Hm? And remember this.
The only reason you meet him is not because you want them Thio, you know, because you're scared of what they're gonna have to say.
Forget that you're mute so your phone doesn't go butting, butting thing, but having 500 times as they continue to go on, I wrote to a chief in that I didn't know and then no, I just tweeted I retweeted or whatever.
Quote tweeted, he wrote.
It's all the chief season, Bubba Blah.
And I wrote No, it ain't with a laugh face.
That's me. I'm fun.
Come back and he comes back pretty good.
He comes back saying I'm salty with the guy and he's got the Kansas City Chiefs things coming down with the S flight of my God. Good for you.
So I put up the Brady six rings gift.
You know, I think we're having a good time.
And I wrote I am salty.
Man out. Allah. Well, salty.
I said you don't get solved.
You have to be in a limited one year.
We haven't been perpetual losers.
Like you guys write fun.
I didn't attack him personally.
I go back on after he responded.
That same comment six times and like, a 32nd span and I was like, Whoa, so I responded to him.
Why did you respond back six times? Well, I was on a break.
A little lunch break D bag.
I was like, All right.
Well, first of all, he called me a D bag.
Of all things in the world.
Like, what do we live in 1995 in anyways? So he calls me D Bag I could even say the word Deus.
He literally called me a D bag.
Maybe it's called me a **** bag.
Maybe you want me. It wasn't ******bag.
Maybe he wanted to throw a bag of ****s at me.
I don't know, But anyways, so I'm like, Wow, I'm like, I feel like you could have done something more productive on your lunch break.
This guy's tweeting me five more times, just like the most ridiculous, mean spirited whatever.
And I was like, I'm laughing.
And then he told me that I lived in my mother's ba*****t, not at my risk.
Parts to him was like, Mother****er, it's my ba*****t with the X.
You know the explanation, Mark.
If somebody responds back to me like that, I know they're just playing.
They're having fun.
He responds back to me with another string of obscenities about how awful I am, how awful the person Tom Brady is.
I'm still fixated on the mother's ba*****t things, so I write back to him.
I don't live in my mother's ba*****t.
It's my own ba*****t, So my wife and I bought this house, he writes back to me, some along the lines of like if you really are married and your wife's a saint and I wrote back and she makes a boatload of money and that ****ed him off, he went crazy.
After that, I got I got, like, eight tweets in a row.
Boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, Boom.
Oh, yeah, and he told me that I was starting Twitter.
Fight's at some point, too.
It's important to this.
So then, after he responded to me eight times, I asked him if we were in a Twitter fight, which got him even more mad, and he went off eight times.
Then he called me a peasant or something like that.
So I started talking about my car.
I said, Well, I drive a Cadillac SRX I said, And actually, it's a pretty wealthy luxury car.
I said again, Rich wife.
So I could afford it.
And I'm not even like I'm not even rich, you know, it's we we we we do well, but I wouldn't call myself Rich.
Comfortable is a good is a good answer.
Anyways, he goes ballistic because of that.
Starts telling me that Tom Brady's a cheater.
Robert Kraft is like a prostitute thing, Bubba Block.
So I just rowed some Tyree kill, choke his wife and beat up his kids fax, right? So he responds back in all caps.
He didn't do it.
And he starts explaining to me in the string of tweets, and it had to be, like, 14 of them about how he was being blackmailed and the, you know, all this kind of stuff.
So after he does the whole 14 things, all caps, I simply respond back to him.
Now I still think he did it, and then he blocked me.
So, Percy, see? So that's how it is.
Don't let these kind of people validate you.
He was looking for and he was looking for validation.
He was like cheese.
Kingdom told this guy.
Chiefs Kingdom, Tell this guy Mike, tell me what? Tell me what I'm salty because my wife makes more money than you.
But what I'm salty because I'm an ******* and I'm married and have two kids and a luxury vehicle.
That's what That's why I'm salty.
Like that's all he kept saying.
Is your salty yourselves your sultan member, like about what I'm like.
I have such a great life.
I have absolutely nothing to be salty about.
And I think the more I told him how great my life was, I think the more I told them how not salty, the more I kept telling him about the things that I own.
Like I told him about my koi.
I was talking about my computer, all that kind of stuff.
I told him that my Patriots wardrobe was worth more than his entire wardrobe.
That ****ed him off that I'm obviously just what did he call me? I was a child who had in dispense in disposable income.
I was like, No, no, I'm like I have a mortgage to pay in car payments And, you know, I just you know, I just I spend my money wisely and I buy jerseys and sweatshirts and you know, yada, yada, yada, and I have I have a PS four.
I have an Xbox, too.
I don't play either of them actual.
There's so much dust on them, I could probably build a little city with the with the molecules that are on the dust.
I am like, I gotta admit, guys, I am like, Ah, I'm getting a little older now.
I'm starting to feel it.
Things like video games there is It does annoy people, man.
We're allowed to have good lives in Look, and I was just talking about money and trust me, I exaggerated a lot to him about the money that I had.
I don't know, half the money that I told him I had, but I can still was upsetting him.
I don't mean because he was at work and I wasn't.
I don't know what it was, but it was upsetting him.
But at the other day, this matter much money.
Have this amount of patriots are winning? It doesn't matter anything.
Don't let those people validate you.
Just know there's somebody out there that loves you.
At least know that I love you all.
You're all special in your own way.
And that's my little P s A for today.
That's my little P s a Just be happy with your life And I just literally watched, like the view's just like, drop outta sight as I went on my little thing there, Mr.
Rogers, I'm from Canada.
It's all about Mr Dress up and if you all don't know who Mr Dress Up is.
Dress Up and you'll see why is 100 times better than Mr Rogers actually watched.
Both grownups don't come at me, Don't come at me.
And Tom Hanks is a national treasure.
And he played Mr Rogers and Mr Rogers wants people to read.
And reading's important people don't actually understand how much I read in my life.
People like, man, all you do is talk about the Patriots.
I'm like, Do you know how much I read? I carry this thing around with me.
Everywhere I go, it's connected to my phone.
WiFi in my home WiFi.
I'm reading articles and opinions all friggin day. It's tablet.
Yeah, it's not even a good one.
Captain Kangaroo wasn't Canadian.
I never even actually saw Captain Kangaroo.
It must be Ozzie.
If Ryan was here, he could have told us.
But, man, you got to read.
You got expand your mind.
If you can read a book that be great.
I listen to books on tapes from my imagination is not taking what's audible.
When I'm driving, I listen to books just to refresh my mind.
I read a lot of news articles.
I probably read about 20 to 25 news articles a day about football.
Uh, I always read a couple about politics just to see if the world's gonna blow up today or not.
Um, but I mean, I read all day you've got to read, You gotta read reading makes you smarter reading.
I'm telling you guys, if you're gonna take any advice for me in life, I don't see why you would.
I'm just a guy talks about the Patriots.
But if you're gonna take any advice for me read, man reading, it's so important whether and it doesn't matter, read a magazine, read a newspaper article, read a book, whatever gets you excited.
A comic book, whatever gets you excited, read, man, and you learn a lot of you learn a lot of stuff by reading.
I come up here and act like I'm really smart.
I just retained a lot of information about everything that I read.
All right, guys, I'm really gonna say goodbye this time before I really go crazy.
And I know the world's not blowing up today.
We seem to be okay.
It seems looks like the Iran crisis has been averted for now.
We'll keep it that way.
I know there's other stuff going on a knocking into the politics right now, but as far as I know, the world's not being blown up.
Canada's upset with Iran, but we don't have any nukes, so we're okay.
The 10 horns is basically done, Joe, There's a sip.
If you all are from Canada or the surrounding area, Canada, we all drink them horns.
If you've never had a tomb or a coffee before, drink them horns.
It's our Dunkin Donuts.
It's better than Dunkin Donuts.
I will fight you over it, and I know that it.
But it's more expensive in Rochester, Joe.
So this costs me. This is a large.
This cost me $2 Canadian, and when I went to Rochester ah, couple of years ago for that soccer tournament, I stopped just after I crossed the border.
Will now is probably a little bit.
It was like like the wilderness.
I like a service station.
Remember, I bought sunglasses for, like, $5 apiece, but that it Tim Hortons in that service station on.
I was on my way to Rochester and a bottom or is coffee, and it came out to $2.50.
That's like $4 Canadian.
I almost ****ed my pants.
I drank Duncan the rest of the time because because I wasn't paying for it and I came home.
I had to stop and get myself a two mornings coffee, because that's what we do.
So I don't know if it's just that service station that was so close to the border that they ripped us off.
But I know they're all of Republic.
There was, um, I was in New York City back in.
I want to say 2015 in the spring of 2015 hours in New York City, and I got so excited because I found it to Morton's.
I was so excited because I found it to Morton's and I went in and a bought it in Warren's coffee and I was walking around Holy might seem Warren's coffee, and I ran into that.
I was there for work.
I was there for a conference and I went back to my conference.
