championship weekend sucked, and I'm not afraid to admit it.
My daughter was born on June 28 2011 and until today she believed that it was her birthright to watch the New England Patriots play in the A F C championship game.
This year was, ah, hard reality for a lot of Patriot fans because most of it like to watch championship weekend and not see the New England Patriots.
There was only one consolation to the Patriots being knocked out of the playoffs so early.
I sat back today and I watched the Kansas City Chiefs beat the Tennessee Titans in the San Francisco 40 Niners run all over the Green Bay Packers, and I was absolutely stress free.
I mean, of course, I had some rooting interest.
There wasn't a scenario that you could have given me where I would be happy to see Patrick Mahomes.
Andy Reid in the Chief's going to the Super Bowl.
I was even tweeted at during the Chiefs game today by a chief's video maker, I guess, rubbing it in my face that the Chiefs were beating the Titans and I debated letting him know that I cheer for New England, not Tennessee.
But I decided to let it go.
At the end of the day, we have to accept the Kansas City played the best football in the postseason.
They fought back from a deficit in both games, and Patrick Mahomes, as we all know, is an unbelievable talent.
Congratulations sees Kingdom.
You're going back to the Super Bowl for the first time in 50 years, and frankly, I couldn't care less if you win or lose.
But I want to remind you of my favorite quotes that comes from a three time Super Bowl champion and a Super Bowl M V P Julian Edelman.
A F C championship brings suck.
You had a cake walk to the show, and now it's time to put up or shut up.
And if you snagged the Lombardi, I will be the 1st 1 there congratulating you guys.
And if you lose, I'll be the 1st 1 there, laughing at you.
Pats Nation. I know that this sucks.
I find no comfort that Jimmy G.
Is going to a Super Bowl.
I'd be lying if I said I had a dog in the fight at all, and frankly, if the Patriots aren't in the Super Bowl.
I wish they'd just cancel it.
I'm also fully aware that I sound like a poor loser, and maybe I am.
But that's the reality of fandom.
Sometimes we're allowed to be rational, and today I'm choosing to be irrational.
Maybe it's more I'll be more level headed.
But for today I just like to sit in my own self pity.
Dear Pats Nature.
What's going on at your boy, Ray and welcome to my little show here on DP and Sports talk.
Thank you to everybody who's tuning in, Live on SportsCastr and thank everybody who's watching this replay on YouTube? Don't forget.
If you want to catch me live, you can catch me live every single night at 10 p.
Eastern time over on SP SportsCastr If you're watching on YouTube, I have left the length of my SportsCastr profile in the description.
I got quite a full slate of things that I want to talk about. Tonight.
I want to talk about an article that I read, saying that the Browns may have dodged a bullet with Josh McDaniels when really, I think that it was Josh McDaniels who dodged the bullet with the Browns.
Could Randy Moss's son be Gronk's replacement? Patriots quarterback Jared Stick him is not focused on Tom Brady's future.
He's only focused on his development.
ESPN came out yesterday, five years after the fact, and suddenly, after sensationalizing the Flake eight, is admitting that perhaps it wasn't that big of a deal in.
Perhaps it was a whole bunch of nothing, and maybe it was a little bit of a crooked investigation.
There's now rumors talk going out saying that Tom Brady has announced that we're not announced. But there's rumors.
Tom Brady has said nothing, but there's rumors that Tom Brady is willing to negotiate with other football teams.
Apparently, Tom Brady talked about his uncer*****y.
I'm gonna be finishing off looking at the A F C championship game in the NFC championship game.
It's a full slate of things to talk about tonight and thank you, everybody who's in here.
We better get this going on this Sunday night because here at DP and we like football.
We like football season and everything that goes with it, and the reality is minus the Pro Bowl, which really isn't a game.
There's only one game of football left the play.
But let's start with this ridiculous article from clutch points that talked about how the Browns may have dodged a bullet with Josh McDaniels.
Now a lot of things have come out about that whole Brown's job, the conversations that they had with Josh McDaniels and they talked about, and the biggest thing that came out of that was sort of the micro management in the ****ytical part of the of the Cleveland Browns and Patriots having to submit a game plan on Fridays and absolute power.
And this and that.
And, of course, I believe it's a good thing for the Patriots that Josh McDaniels is returning to the helmet.
I think you could help with Tom Brady returning to the Patriots.
It can also help keeping some cohesiveness on the coaching staff.
And this is quite, Ah, long article, but one that I thought was important to talk about and just, I don't know.
It's funny how we we continue to look deeper and deeper into this hole Cleveland Browns thing, and it was Josh McDaniels dream job, and it looked like for sure he'd be going to the team and then be doesn't and, well, it goes like this for close to a decade now, whenever the Cleveland Browns have been looking for a coach, which is quite often six times since 2010 Josh McDaniels has been in the conversation.
And why not? The New England Patriots offensive coordinator has been with the Patriots in each of their six Super Bowl winning seasons.
It has directed a top scoring offense, year after year.
He grew up in Northeast Ohio as a Browns fan, and he's been mentored by Bill Belichick, perhaps the greatest head coach in NFL history.
Yet McDaniels was once again passed over by Cleveland along with other teams these past months, he still has yet to receive a second chance of being a head coach.
And there are valid reasons for that.
When the Browns decided to hire Kevin Stefanski over McDaniels, they just didn't choose a candidate who align more closely with the organizational direction.
They also dodged a bullet by passing on McDaniels.
Now, let's start by first debunking that ridiculous lines in that Josh McDaniels has been given another opportunity to be head coach in the NFL.
He absolutely has.
He was hired by the Indianapolis Colts and he Bella check them at the last minute.
On the day they were going to announce on the day they announced they hired him.
The press coverage was the next day, Bella check and Craft went Matt with McDaniels convinced him to think about staying with the Patriots.
He decided to stay with the Pats, and that's why he's not the coach of the Cleveland Browns.
So let's forget this ridiculous narrative that McDaniels hasn't been given an opportunity he's get.
He was given an opportunity.
He just chose not to take it.
Now, from appear resume perspective, McDaniels is more than qualified to be a head coach.
His resume speaks for itself.
He was hired by the New England Patriots, is a personal assistant in 2001 and after working with the defense for two years, he was named the quarterback coach.
He was promoted to offensive coordinator in 2006 after reportedly calling plays the season before.
At this point, McDaniels was only 29 years old in his first season as the O.
The Patriots finished 11th in yards per game and seventh and scoring in 2007.
They ranked first in both categories.
In the next season.
They were again, both top.
They were ed. They were topped out in both.
Despite Tom Brady missing 15 games, the work that Josh McDaniels was able to do with Matt Cassel's Brady's replacement earned him the head coaching job with the Denver Broncos.
At the time, he was the youngest coach in NFL history, but he wasn't just a head coach in Denver.
He had full control over the roster.
The Broncos thought they were getting a 30 year old offensive version of Bill ballot shacks, and McDaniels was determined to be just like his mentor.
The problem is, there's only one ballot Jack now I wanna touch based on that for a second.
I heard a lot of those rumors.
We heard a lot of Denver guys talking about Josh McDaniels and saying that he was trying to be too much like Ballot Shack.
He lost the locker room very early, and that's another thing I want to talk about.
We talk about losing the locker room, and I always kind of wanted what that meant.
That guy's just stopped showing up.
That guy's just not wanna plated guys argue whatever, and I was listening to the Pat McAfee, um, the Pat McAfee show.
And, um, he was talking about it.
And he said, When it's when they talk about losing the locker room, it's losing the yogis.
And when the veterans and the leaders on the team decide that they no longer believe in the coach, that's when you'll see.
Or that's when you'll hear the media talking about how this coach has lost the locker room.
According to multiple reports, multiple rumors.
McDaniels lost a locker room in Denver very, very early into his 10 year, and I've kind of said there can only be one Bill Belichick and I've been a big believer that bill balance that couldn't even be built about checking the league anymore.
Have you ever left the New England Patriots? Maybe he could, because of his pedigree.
But with this new generation of football player with these new, younger you know, players, these prima donnas, whatever you want to call them millennials and I'm a millennial myself.
So I'm not, you know, knocking Leno's, but with a different attitude of players today.
And they're Maur and let's face it, players are more focused on themselves.
We got guys holding out.
You got guys like Lady on Belle holding out for money.
I just don't think that you can have the control of a locker room like Bill Belichick has had.
We saw the issues over in Jacksonville with Tom Coughlin trying to instill that old school football mentality.
One of the first moves of McDaniel made AH was to trade quarterback Jay Cutler.
Cutler was 26 years old and had made the Pro Bowl in his second season as a full time starter.
Cutler was sent to the Chicago Bears, but reports were that the Patriots attended attempted to swap Castle for Cutler, which raise su****ion about the McDaniels True alliance allegiance.
Sorry McDaniels to draft classes were nothing impressive.
His first pick was running back No Sean Monroe, who was taken 12th overall out of Georgia.
He played five seasons for Denver, Rush in 1000 yards just once.
He would play three games in 2014 for the Miami Dolphins before being out of the league defensive, and Robert IRS was taken six picks later, and although he played nine seasons in the league, he only had 12 sacks and five years for the Broncos, including none as a rookie in 2010.
McDaniel selected wide receivers the Marius Thomas and Eric Decker by far his best picks with Denver.
But he also traded up for quarterback Tim Tebow.
Judging by his two drafts, it's clear talent evaluation may not have been McDaniel strong suits.
I mean, listen, the draft is such a crap shoot, and I think it's so unfair.
Especially, only look at to dress.
And when we hear this all the time about Bill ballot Jacko, Bill Bouche, I can evaluate talent.
Bill Belichick can't draft.
He's a great coach, but he has no idea how to draft.
You know how to evaluate, you know, college talent.
Completely ignoring that he drafted Tom Brady and Julian Edelman and Rob Gronkowski and Dont'a Hightower undrafted free agents like Malcolm Butler, Jacey Jackson.
I mean, it's just insane.
And that list goes on and on and on.
Vince will force Richard Seymour, you know, and again, and I gave I just I'm not gonna go through the whole list.
I went through the entire list the other night of all of balletic double check had great things.
And the considering that Josh McDaniels drafted Decker into Marius Thomas.
Two very good receivers, two guys that end up having a cup of coffee with the Patriots as well.
I mean, shows that maybe a little bit.
McDaniels was able to evaluate some college talent dreamers.
Rookie head coach season McDaniels Bronco started out six to know when it appeared if it appeared as if ballot checks.
Protege had learned what he needed to after the six no start Denver when two and six over the rest of the season, but still had a chance to make the playoffs in Week 17 with a win, but they lost two rival Kansas City by 20.
The next season, the Bronco started three and nine, and after it was revealed that Denver was caught recording the San Francisco 49 practice walked through something that had happened in New England Prior to their game, McDaniels was fired, a promising start that ended in a complete disaster.
I mean, yeah, like you can't get caught spying, I thought, you know, And to me, that's that's my knock on McDaniels.
Like you just saw what happened in New England.
Why would you try to do it again, Like I think even balance check is realized.
You can't do it, and I get that.
The Patriots are going through this whole Spy Gate two point old thing right now, but I think anybody with a good sense and good football mind understands that it is not a thing.
Josh McDaniels was hired by the ST Louis Rams, is an offensive coordinator for the 2011 season, where he piloted them to the 32nd ranked offense.
But, I mean, let's look at the talent roster that he had in ST Louis in 2012 years back in New England, and the Patriots again led the NFL in yards and points.
McDaniels now had to rebuild his reputation and learned from his mistakes in Denver.
Over the next five season, New England remained among the league's best offense.
Despite a constant churning of personnel and an agent, Brady Pride of the 2018 season, McDaniels agreed to become the next head coach of the Indianapolis Colts.
He got a staff together, and those coaches left their jobs and moved their families to Indianapolis.
But on the day the team introduced McDaniel does a new coach, McDaniels backed out of the job.
This causes agent to part ways with them.
And McDaniels Reputation suffered once again, and maybe it has.
But I don't believe that McDaniels isn't getting jobs because of that whole Indianapolis thing.
I believe that McDaniels isn't getting jobs because of other reasons, and I think it's philosophical.
I don't think it's his ability to do the job.
I think it's a philosophical thing.
I think McDaniels wants what Belichick has, and owners just and G.
M's just aren't willing.
I mean, you wouldn't need a general manager, really.
You would need a Knicks Nazario, who's like the director of player personnel in that kind of thing.
But he wants that absolute control like Bill Belichick.
Guys, I don't think owners have the stomach to give it to him.
2019 was an interesting year for the Patriots.
The defense was the most dominant unit in recent history, but their offense was middling injuries and lack of talent, both in skilled positions and the offensive line, combined with combined with visible regression from Brady, led to New England's worst offensive output since 2003.
But in spite of this, McDaniels was reportedly ready to be a head coach again, and although he was open to other jobs, he wanted to be in Cleveland.
The Browns ended up in the last team with a head coach vacancy.
McDaniels Onley interview was with Cleveland.
Despite having other schedule, Belichick refused to allow McDaniels to move up his interviews due to the Patriots exit interviews and meetings.
This led to the positions like the Carolina Panthers in the New York Giants being filled without talking to McDaniels.
This is interesting because the Giants were allowed to interview special teams and wide receivers coach Joe Judge, who they ultimately hired.
Which tells me that Bill Belichick saw lot more value in keeping Josh McDaniels than he did in keeping Jo judge.
And that's not a knock on Joe Judge.
But I think the fact that when McDaniels took the job in Indianapolis and Bill Belichick and Robert Craft convinced him to stay and apparently offered him a boatload of money and made him the highest paid offensive quarter in the league, Balletic understands what he has.
A McDaniels and I think in Bala Check really did whatever he could not to give McDaniels the opportunity.
The Browns ended, Ah, Josh McDaniels, standing with the Browns and reportedly impressed the search committee, and it seemed as if McDaniels in Cleveland would finally unite after years of on and off courting.
But the next day, Kevin O'Connell, rumored as McDaniels choice for offensive coordinator, was hired by the Los Angeles Rams shortly after the Browns announced that Kevin Stefanski would be their next head coach.
Reports came out later that McDaniels in Cleveland, had differing viewpoints on the structure of the organization.
Owner Jimmy House are Ah Haslam wanted to keep the chief strategy officer Paul DePodesta in place, along with other members, and McDaniels wanted sweeping changes.
Rumors also swirled about certain demands of the Browns made such as having a kn ****ytical person on the headset with coach during the games.
Helping to make decisions as well is turning in game plans to the ****ytical department by Friday in meeting with House Um on Mondays.
The majority of issues highlighted in the various reports are standard things in nearly all NFL in all two NFL teams do, but they're presented is weird and unusual because the Browns are doing them not true at all.
Other teams may be doing it, but it has to be the coach's philosophy.
What other NFL teams aren't doing are forcing head coaches to buy into that philosophy with a lot of young coaches to make days and those kind of guys in the world they believe in ****ytics.
Josh McDaniels was cut by the Bill Belichick.
You know, cloth of coaching.
Belichick doesn't even use on tablet.
He uses old school printing on the sideline.
So I think it's unfair to say this is common around the NFL, cause it Maybe it is.
But it's gotta be from the buying from the coach.
I'd be interested to know if the Kansas City Chiefs use ****ytics.
Or, you know, has Andy Reid bought in Tutor as you not.
And this isn't a knockin ****ytics.
I believe in ****ytics.
I mean, I used ****ytics a lot this season talking about things, But if the coach doesn't buy into that kind of thing, if the coaches and buying into the ****ytics think then it's not a common occurrence if the coach doesn't buy into it.
The overall tone, as well as the timing of the reports seem to point to a certain candidate unhappy with the Browns, refusing to accommodate his demands.
But the Browns were correct, not decayed.
The McDaniels, perhaps he has truly changed in the team, made a mistake by passing on him.
But purging the front office to adhere to McDaniels amounts demand sounds quite similar.
What happened 10 years ago? Josh McDaniels was trying to do the exact same thing that got him fired in Denver and maybe would have worked this time.
But the Browns decided not to take that risk.
Will it pay off on Lee? Time will tell.
Cleveland doesn't deserve the benefit of the doubt, given the perpetual losing and dysfunction that has plagued the franchise since its return in 1999.
But at the very least, the organization is finally on the same page.
No, the organization has been on the same page for a long time.
They're just a Dumpster fire oven organization, and it starts with ownership 100%.
It starts with ownership, So don't be coming at me saying that this and if it works, it works, man, and I hope it works to some extent.
I mean, I don't want them to be in the Super Bowl.
But as I said as a football fan, seeing guys like Baker, Mayfield and Beckham and Landry and Nick Char Um yeah, job and it hurts me to see them not being able to do anything because of dysfunctional coaching the dysfunctional ownership.
And you're absolutely right.
The Browns do not deserve the benefit of the doubt because they've done nothing.
They've been losers and losers forever.
I mean, who would have any respect for that organization? I don't think that the Browns dodged the bullet.
I think that that McDaniels dodged the bullet.
I'm not just saying that because oh, I think McDaniels you know, and I'm the kissing his ass from a Patriots fan.
I'm saying it because I believe it.
I believe that that awful culture and that dysfunctional, perpetual losing culture comes from the ownership, not from the coaching staff.
I don't think it matters.
Who coaches what Cleveland should have done is hired McDaniels and got that out of the way.
That's just my opinion, though, so I'm hoping that, you know, that's probably the last time I'm gonna talk about this whole Brown situation.
But I read this article it drove me crazy reading some of the stuff.
I had to address it.
Now Perry's asking, Could Randy Moss's son be Rob Gronkowski? Its replacement, the Patriots, never really filled the void left behind by Rob Gronkowski is retirement last offseason, but by the time the draft rolls around in April, they'll have the opportunity to replace one Hall of Famer with the son of another fresh off two touchdowns for L s U in the national championship game Earlier this week, tight end Thad Moss, Randy Moss's son, has declared for the NFL draft.
Look, and I know that a lot of Patriot fans want Moss.
I also think there's a lot better tight end options out there, and I discussed a few of them just the other night when I talked about the tight ends.
We can't just live on nostalgia.
It's like everybody's saying, Let's recycle.
We gotta bring back Danny Amendola.
No, we're trying to live in the past by bringing on Danny Amendola.
If you've watched them in Miami, watch him.
Detroit. He looked okay.
I don't think he's gonna come in and be this this huge difference maker for the Patriots.
I mean, I know it didn't look like it, but Mohammed Sunu is an upgraded version of Amendola.
We live with this nostalgic fad.
Moss will not be Randy Moss.
Randy Marsh is a generational Hall of Fame talents, so I don't know.
Here's a quote quote.
I have loved being a part of something as legendary as a 2019 2020 football team. Masa in a statement.
I believe that God has presented me with an alternative path.
Masa Jr caught 47 passes for 570 yards and four touchdowns this season.
He scored three times, catching nine passes for 135 yards and L s U semifinal in a final game in route to the national title, the Patriots have two tight ends undercount contract for 2020.
Matt Lacoste and Ryan is Oh, and addressing the position figures to be one of the team's priorities this offseason.
Moss is six foot 3 £249 isn't considered one of the top options at the position in this year's draft class.
But that could change is the pre job process plays out.
He only has two seasons of college football under his belt, having played sparingly at North Carolina State in 2016 transferring to L S u.
The following year, he had to sit out due to any rules.
He was then red shirted by the Tigers, making 2019.
Hey, saw his first in three years.
I get that he's read the mosque, his son.
I absolutely get That is Randy Marsh, his son.
But there's better options there, and I'm reading somebody.
Comments on SportsCastr right now.
Yeah, Jamie Collins didn't play like crap in Cleveland.
He played on a crappy team.
Brandon Bolden did just fine on our special teams at a couple of big plays.
There's so many tight and options in this draft.
I just going by the Moss name to me just doesn't make sense.
Maybe I'm wrong.
Maybe he'll be a great player and I'm wrong.
But the Patriots have had some more in depth scouting information on Moss and other teams as his father played for Bill ballot check from 2007 to 10.
Moss was traded in the middle of the 2010 season, but he and Belichick seemed to have maintained a good relationship, giving their interaction when they appeared together on set of the NFL Network old time teams special that aired this season, Belichick is called Moss, one of the smartest players that he's ever coached.
Experts have pegged Notre Dame underclassmen Cole commit, who recently announced he was going pro as a draft type top tight end in the first round.
Possibility for New England.
Here's the thing.
I believe that the Patriots do draft Thad Moss.
It will be the second or third tight end.
The Patriots could use a first round draft pick and probably have the pick of any tight.
And they want in the draft.
I don't think there's any team right now ahead of the Patriots that a tight end is their priority in the options that are there are bigger than fad and see this article what it did it does, is it? It plays the same.
It plays with the same emotional nostalgic, you know, uh, head games that we play with ourselves because the kids last name is Moss because of who his father is, we believe is gonna come to New England, and he's gonna replicate what Rob Gronkowski did.
He's smaller than Gronk.
Gronk was more athletic.
Gronk was faster.
And I believe that there's a lot more tight ends in this draft that can that I compete at a similar level of Rob Gronkowski.
But moving on now to another prospect of Patriots having a guy who I think a lot of people don't believe has a future with the Patriots.
Some people believe he does.
Other people are like me where they're like, Hey, man, I'm just gonna wait and see.
That's Jared Stadium and I'm sure that he's watching the whole Tom Brady situation with a lot of curiosity.
Ah, lot of interest, a lot of banks.
Because, man, this kind of reminds me sort of of the Tom Brady suspension as Jimmy Garoppolo sitting there patiently waiting to see if Brady's gonna be suspended or not.
And you know, and it's the day that Brady's first time is suspension was overturned.
I remember somebody tweeted out.
Today is the worst day.
Jimmy grapples mother's life, and I just I found it so funny when I read that, but it was true.
Grapple is waiting for an opportunity to show what he could do, and Brady just wouldn't allow him to do it.
And now Jared's students got a sitting there going like, um, I'm gonna be the starting quarterback next year.
They gonna bring in a veteran.
They're gonna draft somebody.
Do they really believe in me? Um, I just here to be Ryan Mallett, you know, a perennial backup, but he can't focus manager instead, and he's got a perfect He can't focus on Tom Brady.
But New England Patriots backup quarterback Jared stood him would be the player most affected by Tom Brady leaving the team of the free agent this offseason.
But he said this isn't part of his mindset as he prepares for his second season with the club quote.
Right now, I can't really think too much about all of that.
I have to worry about what I need to do to prepare to enhance my game, to learn as much as possible as I possibly can stick, him said from the panini rookie close out in California.
That's the biggest thing I focused on making a big stride from year 12 year, too.
But naturally, Brady naturally provided him a road map on how to do so throat. The 2019 season.
Now, before we go on with the article, I mean, Jarrod Sands got the right attitude because if he does turn out being the starting quarterback of the Patriots next season, if Bill Belichick sits on the draft and does nothing, if he doesn't sign somebody like a Teddy Bridgewater, then yeah, then the paint.
Instead, him has to show improvement because he's the guy.
So I think that if you're just sitting there watching to see what Tom Brady's gonna do when you're not working on getting better, if he comes back, he comes back.
You continue your backup role, you have another year to improve.
If he doesn't come back, you try to fight improve that you should be the starting quarterback of the Patriots.
And the only way you can do that is to worry about yourself.
To focus on yourself, to use this offseason, to get better and not focus about what's happening with Brady, huh? Here's what Ah, what's it about to say? You said quote.
It was priceless.
It's gonna be really cool one day when I can sit there and tell my Children or my grandchildren one day that I got to be in the same quarter back room and talking about coverages and different passing concepts with Tom said, Set him.
Stadium, of course, was selected in the fourth round, 133rd overall out of Auburn and beat out veteran Brian Hoyer in training camp to be the top backup.
He's a phenomenal team, made a phenomenal person, obviously a phenomenal player.
There was just so much that I got to learn from him.
He was obviously very open to me about stuff that he's thought about the game of football and stuff like that.
I can't speak highly enough about the guy, which was great.
The here stadium saved because there was a lot of rumors coming out, especially after Jimmy Garoppolo was traded.
That Tom Brady never saw it is his job to mentor Jimmy Garoppolo and prepare him to be a starting quarterback in the NFL.
Perhaps at that time, Brady was living on, you know, still was thinking about 45 he just saw it drop low as a threat to him playing more years of football.
You probably looked at stadium and thought you could afford they can afford to keep you and see you on the bench and develop you as I play out my contract and I play out my time and we can go.
And, of course, we don't know what Tom Brady's gonna do.
I still think that Brady will sign with the Patriots despite what some people think.
But it doesn't surprise me that Brady would see him as a non factor in any decisions that they make about the quarterback situation going forward.
Brady's future is arguably the biggest story in the NFL this upcoming off season, and he is scheduled to become a free agent on March 18th for the first time in his 20 year career.
As part of a provisioned added in this contract in August.
The Patriots can't assign him to the franchise tag, which means Brady holds leverage that is uncommon for a player of his stature.
Brady recently told Westwood one radio that he didn't have a timeline for a decision and that he was enjoying the time away.
Brady became the 1st 42 year old quarterback to start every game for an NFL team in 2019 which meant ST M 23 had the opportunity to learn behind the scenes.
Stadium didn't miss a practice all year, noting he enjoyed competing against the Patriots top defense and took note of Brady's professionalism.
Sit him, said this quote.
The way he approaches things, his work ethic is unbelievable.
The amount of time that he puts in the film and just game plan and understanding, who were playing and personnel, all the different things that could come up throughout the week.
That's something I've obviously learned a lot from him and something I'd love to incorporate as much as possible into my game as I possibly could, he said.
The list is endless, but that's probably the number one thing.
So look, I love.
That's didn't miss thinking about his game.
I love that stadium is thinking about his future.
Right now he's sitting behind Tom Brady, and until Tom Brady retires or leaves the Patriots, whatever comes first.
Jared Stadium is the backup quarterback of the New England Patriots.
But the fact that he got to learn from Brady the fact that he saw his work ethic and that's you know when Brady does retire, that's one thing that's gonna be missing from the Patriots is the example that Tom Brady said.
But if Jared Stadium does work out, Jared's Didem does turn out to be a solid starting quarterback in the NFL.
Then he has the opportunity to show that same work ethic is Brady that same opportunity to work for it and mentor younger quarterbacks moving forward and ensuring that that kind of thing stays together.
I also believe as long as Bill Belichick is the head coach of the Patriots, then the opportunity Oh, there's gonna be leadership there.
There's gonna be It's gonna be up.
Just a part of being a New England Patriot.
Over the 2017 and 28 18 seasons at Auburn, System was 4 70 for 7 39 for 5952 yards with 36 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.
In the 2019 preseason New England, He was 61 of 90 for 731 yards with four touchdowns in one interception.
Stadium appeared in three regular season games, all brief stands, with the outcome well in hand totaling just 15 snaps, the number could increase significantly of Brady doesn't return to the team in 2020 as the only Patriots Kurt quarterback currently under contract is Cody Kessler of his approach.
This offseason stood up, said quote.
Obviously, I know that we're what we're doing and what we're trying to do in that sort of thing, but just kind of enhancing everything on my own end, knowing every little detail in all the engine outs.
Obviously, Tom, he's been in the system for 20 years and knows it extremely well, and I'm not going to get to that level quite yet.
But trying to close that gap as much as I can and learn as much as I can is my biggest goal, and I totally appreciate the young kid doing that.
I totally appreciate the young kid, a recognizing look.
I'm not gonna be Tom Brady.
I was talking about it on Twitter today with some people.
I said, You know, what's amazing to me is that Jimmy Garoppolo came out and said that he believed he was better than Tom Brady and Pats.
They should really gave him a pass on that, you know, and we hate Aaron Rodgers, but I think frankly, we don't hate Aaron Rodgers for peeing Aaron Rodgers.
We hate Aaron Rodgers because of Max Kellerman and Packers fans, kind of all over the place.
Like Aaron Rodgers has come out on multiple occasions.
I can think it twice once on the golf course.
Once before the Patriots played the Packers last season, he came out, he said, Tom Brady is the goat.
So here's Aaron Rodgers running around saying that Tom Brady's the coat and Jimmy Garoppolo said, Yeah, I know.
I feel like I'm better than Tom Brady and I mean, Stadium is not going down that road.
He's not like, Yeah, I'm ready to take over the team.
He understands his role, and he understands.
Look, I'm not good.
I'm not as good as Tom that I still got a ton toe learn in the National Football League.
So what I'm gonna do was take what I learned from the goat, try to apply it to my off season, and hopefully, as the season goes on, to get better next year for the Patriots sink, I think State has an opportunity, possibly a chance of becoming the starting quarterback for the Patriots.
Tom Brady coming back would be crucial to that piece, though, allowing him to have another season, learning under Tom Brady.
Another season watching the work ethic, another another season, closing the gap between backup to starter.
Whether that all comes into fruition, obviously, we don't know.
But we're gonna have to just kind of wait and see and kind of play it by ear and see how it all shakes out.
But I want to move on a little bit here, and I want to talk a little bit about Deflate Gate and and Kevin Seifert from ESPN.
Yesterday, he put out an article called What really Happened during to Flake 85 years later, the NFL scandal aged poorly, and he really goes at the NFL.
He really goes at the decision to suspend Tom Brady, and it's all sort of sparked by the Major League Baseball investigation into the cheating scandal with the Houston Astros.
But what kills me is is ESPN, of all places coming out and kind of almost defending Tom Brady talking about how ridiculous of a witch hunt the flake.
It was talking about how you know, stupid it was and and the poor outcomes.
Yet they were one of the company's one of the news organizations that sensationalized it and wouldn't let the story go away.
And if I worked hard enough, I'm sure I'd find tons of ESPN articles saying how bad the Patriots were.
And they need to be punished.
And Tom Brady needs to be punished.
And yada yada, yada When Spi geh 2.
0 came out. ESPN.
Talking about This is the third time they've been caught cheating the second time.
David Koch in spine.
But they also had the flake ate.
The NFL needs to throw the book at them.
Well, why are they having a sudden change of attitude? Here's what he wrote.
A baseball world.
We're on the NFL side of things restored.
Is your game engulfed in a cheating scandal? It's truly awful to know that the Houston Astros swindled their way to the 2017 World Series title, but I've got a laugh and remind you that five years ago, the NFL produced a scandal that was chest to your checkers.
The flayed gate was a jet.
I mind trick to your manipulate to your multiplication tables.
It was HD digital to your ****og.
In its zeal to preserve the perception of credible, out comes the end of NFL scandalized itself with an investigation that produced farm or su****ion, ill will and accusations of improper Evan property than the original allegations themselves.
I want to read that again.
The NFL scandalized itself with an investigation that produced far more su****ion, ill will in accusations and improper charity than the original allegations itself.
Like I don't disagree.
And I think a lot of Patriots fans were sickened by everything that happened with the Flake eight.
But the reality is the NFL did it like the NFL went on a witch hunt, and ESPN was one of the companies to back the NFL and keep sensationalizing this scandal at its core.
The flaky aides suggested that the New England Patriots used in a legal process for lowing the inflation of game footballs and the behest of quarterback Tom Brady, who preferred the grip of softer balls.
The NFL thought it found proof during a surprise and unprecedented inflation check at halftime of the 2014 a f C championship game Ah, 45 to send seven drubbing of the Indianapolis Colts.
It's that spent upwards of $22 million over the course of a year to investigate, litigate and discipline Brady in the organization.
At best, it was a relatively minor rules violation that no rational person would link to the Patriotsvictory two weeks later in Super Bowl 49.
What I recall watching ESPN and them talking about other Patriots, this is Asterix and *****ed.
How does an organization that sensationalized one of the worst witch hunts in the history of the National Football League How do they come out now five years later and try to defend themselves like this and try to defend the Patriots? The Flake A was a retroactive framing of the league's most successful franchise in the future Hall of Fame quarterback, Ah, clumsy and forgettable endeavor in an unfortunate reminder that the NFL standard for discipline demands on Lee that an event was more probable than not to have occurred.
And, I mean, I think that's the words.
And that's the ones that his Patriot fans we talked about a lot.
It wasn't Yes, we have 100% believe they cheated.
Yes, Tom Brady did this yesterday.
No, it was more probable than not that Tom Brady had some knowledge that it happened.
Brady also, we served a four game suspension because the NFL believed he was generally aware of the scheme Now.
In this case, however, the Patriots denied nearly every aspect of the NFL's allegations, including Brady's involvement, and it took extraordinary steps to defend themselves.
The effort included a website to dispute the NFL Wells report on the scandal, one that included multiple scientists pointing out that the footballs condemn fleet naturally based on weather conditions.
Now we all know what that is.
That's the ideal gas law we talked about.
I mean, we still say ideal gas law all the time, But obviously Roger Goodell and David Wells believe that they're smarter than scientists the same way that they covered up the whole concussion thing.
They still don't believe that c t exist, even though they've been sued and loss because of it.
The NFL can just not acknowledge when they're wrong or that they're not this.
They're like that person that needs to be.
You know, you had a party and you meet that person that needs to be the smartest person in the room, even if they're wrong, even if they're stupid.
Even if their notion sounds absolutely ridiculous, they will fight you under the presence in the pretense that they are the smartest people in the room.
That's where the NFL is, an organization.
That's why we refer to Roger Goodell as Roger the Clown.
The Patriots even submitted and make you his brief on behalf of Brady, who filed a federal lawsuit the league to overturn a suspension stating that straddling the line between NFL stakeholders and whistle blowers, Brady got a suspension, overturned a 2014 but ultimately lost on appeal, served his punishment 2016.
Yet when it was all over, no one could say for sure.
Well, no one could say for sure if the Flake gate actually happened.
A reasonable, pert reasonable, a reasonable person could be left thinking that the investigation itself was a true scandal.
I mean, is ESPN mad at the NFL? Because this is really ballsy for ESPN, because ESPN never goes after the NFL like this.
And it's just to me when I think about this, when I'm looking at this story, I'm thinking, Where the hell does ESPN get off? Because they believed in all this crap five years ago.
And I know I've been seeing the Twitter reaction of this.
Nobody is forgiving.
ESPN We all remember.
We all remember what you did.
We're not going to forget because you put out a fluff piece about how stupid it is.
But it's true, and I think reasonable people and I'm not talking, you know, hardheaded Chiefs fans and hardheaded Bills fans and an idiot Jets fans.
Reasonable people can look at this situation.
And if it happened? A.
When Julian Edelman was tested positive for P E.
D s, I said he tested positive for PDS Spy Gate.
The Patriots cheated.
Stop trying to defend Spy Gate.
The flight gate is debatable.
The Wells report was largely based on a series of text messages from an equipment assistant who referred to himself.
Is it the flatter? And by the way, how stupid are you? Referring to yourself? Is the deflator like you're some evil villain from a comic book like and when you know you're doing something that's possibly against rules like, you know, let's assume this is all true for a minute.
When you're doing something that's against the rules, why would you refer to yourself by the crime you're making? It's like the James bond movies.
I always wonder, why does the villain always tell James Bond his master plan, like, just ended? You waste so much time telling them what he's gonna do reminds me the old Batman movies.
Well, let me tell you, Batman, what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna rob the bank, see? And then we're gonna do this.
See, All the while, Batman is cutting the rope with a special utility knife that he had in his glove.
Like the Deflator Wells report based largely on a series of text messages from an equipment assistant who referred to himself as to deflate er and the unexplained pregame detour of a locker room attendant who brought the ball game balls into the bathroom with him before the game.
There was no direct evidence of the equipment assistant remove the air from the footballs or that Brady had asked him to do it in the half time inflation measurements was rushed in haphazard effort and one that never that would never pass scientific scrutiny to confirm accuracy.
And yet those same measurements was the basis of Tom Brady being suspended.
Don't forget that this whole the investigation from the time that they checked the footballs to the whole Wells investigation to ignoring the ideal gas law.
To all of that nonsense, the Patriots still end up losing Tom Brady for four games because the NFL still believes that they're the smartest person in the room.
In the end, it is nothing more than an opinion to suggest that there was more probable than not that the Flake Aid happens in terms of advance statistics.
The NFL was saying that there was a 51% probability that the Flake Gate occurred, but a 100% necessity to issue discipline.
It's not outlandish to think that someone connected to the Patriots might have tried to help Brady or that Brady had tactically accepted to help.
But there's no direct evidence of it.
And when an M I T.
Professor explained, the weather conditions could do the same thing based on the ideal gas law, who could argue? And I know that accountants and stock clerks and cooks and chefs and bore hands and bartenders and everybody under the sun who's not a Patriot fan will argue with an M. I t scientist.
But it's true the NFL wouldn't have known either way because it did not regularly record record pounds per square and readings to the point where we all knew football deflation.
The deflation occurred naturally every week.
The shaky connections on the preposterous conclusions of the Flake eight have allowed it to slip quietly from the NFL consciousness.
The legacy of the Flake Gate is to complete and utter lack of one other than the brief entrance of the ideal gas law into the football lexicon and as it's grits to limit the benefit of doubt.
The ongoing investigation.
The Patriots legal videotaping last month from the Cincinnati Bengals press conference.
All right, well, let me tell you something ESPN reporters may not be reporting on to flaking anymore.
Reporters and the news.
It may not be mainstream news.
It may not be a ***y story anymore, but let me assure you that it's impossible to be a Patriots fan on social media without deflate gate being thrown into our face on a week to week basis.
We have to hear about Tom Brady's deflated footballs.
So no, it's not done.
It's a lure that will probably stay forever.
And you were one of the culprits and one of the reasons that we have to deal with this.
B s on it, almost a day to day basis.
So don't come out here trying to justify who you are as an organization.
After you sensationalized, sensationalized the Flake eight and now pretend like what's a non story? Nobody talks about it.
No, lots of people talk about it.
Mostly quiet years later, I'd like to say the NFL learned a lesson, but sometimes a larger scope is necessary.
Five years before to Flake Aid, the NFL championship weekend gave us another gate.
The accusation that the New Orleans Saints players stood to gain financially if they could injure Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Farve during the 2019 NFC Championship game.
The two year investigation in the Bounty gate contains so many holes that the retired commissioner, Paul Tag a blue Tagle Ubu brought in to handle appeals and clean up the mess, vacated the discipline of four players and sharply criticized what he called a contaminated investigation.
So we'll reserve judgment on whether the NFL has moved past its phase of in discretionary investigations, and it could just be on the five year plan.
But if that's the case.
Keep your head on a swivel this weekend, so I mean, look, I don't want to keep reliving to Flake A that the part of the Patriots history and lore that I hate talking about.
I hate thinking about I hate how the whole story and lead up to Super Bowl 49 had everything to do with the Flake eight.
But come on, man.
ESPN is gonna have the balls to come out here and say that this story is dead and it's quiet in the NFL.
Messed up, you know, woes.
No, screw you, ESPN you have made.
It's not just the Brady suspension.
It was a sensational ization of this story, and it wasn't just ESPN it with CBS.
I mean, Al Michaels was talking about a drink.
Super Bowl 59 NBC.
It was on Nightline or Dateline.
Whatever the hell that show is called Good Morning, America.
Six people who knew nothing about the game of football talking about the New England Patriots in deflated footballs.
People I knew people who had never watched a football game in their entire life, and they were giving me their opinion on to flake eight.
It's to this day people give me their opinion on to Flake A.
They've never watched the game, so yeah, I do get fired up by this.
It's an ass trick in a black hole and on Pats Nation and ESPN is one of the people response or one of the organizations responsible for all of this crap.
And now you're gonna come out and write this article and think that we're all gonna be okay with it.
Have you seen the reaction from patriots? Have you seen the reaction from other NFL fan bases? All that's done is all this article is done is reopened the criticism to the New England Patriots.
So you but I mean that.
And then let's just jump into another ridiculous ESPN article report.
Tom Brady prepared to meet with teams As Tom Brady enters free agency, he will allow himself to be courted by other teams for the first time in his NFL career, CBS Sports Jason La Canfora reports, according to lack and for it would be extremely surprising if Brady and the Patriots agreed to a deal before free agency opens on March 18th.
The veteran quarterback is prepared to discuss his future with other teams.
While the process could still result in a return to New England, it's far from certain at this point lack.
And for our reports, Brady intends to take a methodical approach to his first foray into free agency.
As at age 42 this will be the final contract of his playing career.
Brady has spent two decades with the Patriots and 16 Super Bowls with the franchise, however free agency for the first time in his career and may be lacking for his right.
And he's not been one to really be asked out often.
Maybe he does have a source.
How reliable the sources to what Tom Brady's thinking.
That's another story altogether.
But when you think about these other reports that come out of these guys that Gary Tanking, he puts out an article today are nothing on Twitter today.
Believe me, this is happening, Brady so on his own.
If Brady is moving to Connecticut, if that's the case or New York like the stories were saying, why the hell is the number one team he linked to in Los Angeles? People say he's gonna go play for the Chargers.
That's not near Connecticut.
What team is near Connecticut that needs a quarterback? It's just every day with this, and this is our off season.
Next, we are in two weeks.
We get to watch the Kansas City Chiefs play in the Super Bowl, and we get to read articles about Tom Brady's future.
I think it's a patriot fan of fires me up, man.
It fires me up that this is the crap that we need to talk about on a daily basis.
But if I don't talk about it, I get a 1,000,001 questions and opinions, and I cannot state all my opinions on Twitter, so I have to bring it on here.
Brady has repeatedly said that he wants to play until at least the age of 45.
He is coming off a season which he threw for 4057 yards, 24 touchdowns and eight interceptions.
He often expressed his frustration throughout the season, reading the Patriots offense, which lacked a strong receiving corps.
Black and four reports that Brady would like the chance to mentor a young quarterback wherever he plays in the future.
to help believe a franchise in good shape when he retires.
So I mean, Okay, So all we heard about the whole Jimmy Garoppolo thing was a Tom Brady didn't find it was his his jaw.
It didn't believe it was his job to mentor a young quarterback.
Suddenly, Tom Brady wants to mentor Ian quarterback.
Well, if you want a mentor, a young quarterback bringing, there's a young quarterback named Jared Stadium was ready to be men toward.
I mean, where is he going to go? Where there's a young quarterback readily available? Who's going to the next starting quarterback of the Patriots are of that team? What's gonna go is gonna goes.
Take Jan Daniel Jones job in New York.
Is he going to go take Baker Mayfield's job in Cleveland? You think those guys will be happy for you to come in and put them on the bench? You think going to be welcomed by a word by open arms as a mentor? Yeah, if you guys like Jack Stanton gets drafted and yeah, absolutely.
He'd love to go and be mentored by you.
You want to go somewhere where they got a young quarterback that needs a mentorship and could deal sitting on the bench.
Go to Washington, Khaled Mansour, Dwayne Haskins or hot whatever.
No, you guys all I'm saying.
I mean, I just I don't buy that piece.
And I mean, and there were now two point that anything that guy says is gonna be scrutinized 1000 times over.
So Brady's at UFC last night to watch that joke of a USC fighters.
McGregor's Knox Cowboy on 40 seconds.
Of course, he's asked about his future, and Tom Brady reiterates uncer*****y ahead of looming free agency decision.
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady continues to be noncommittal about where he's gonna play in 2020.
Brady is slated to enter free agency in March, when the new league year begins.
And he could re negotiate an extension of the Patriots before free agency opens and, of course, in free agency.
If he makes it to free agency, he can shop himself two teams to find the best fit, whether in New England or elsewhere.
Considering the enormity of the decision, Brady has faced multiple questions about his future in the 2019 season and the 2020 off season, but he has continued to say very little about his looming decision.
It's only been a couple of weeks, and I have a lot of time with my family the last couple of weeks, just decompressing from the season, Brady told Jim Gray on Westwood one radio on Sunday.
Like I said earlier, I'm open minded about the process, but at the same time, I love playing football and want to continue to play and do a great job.
I'm looking to what is ahead.
Whether it's what my future brings, I will embrace it with open arms.
In the meantime, I'm gonna watch these two games as a fan and enjoy them from my couch.
I mean, to me, that was just Brady not commenting.
And yet that somehow turns around.
Well, Brady is probably going somewhere else.
Listen, I'm sure I've read articles and come up with opinions.
I've read quotes and come up with opinions that were far fetched.
What the person men, And if that's the case, I mean, you know, shame on me.
I'm also not a professional journalist, and I think my standard of accountability is less than these so called journalists.
But I'm looking at this situation and thinking like, How can you look at these comments and believe, Yeah, this is what Brady is thinking right now.
Brady doesn't want return of the Patriots.
He wants to shop himself.
Tom Brady is yet to come out and say that to anybody.
And yet everybody with a pulse in an opinion is being taken as fact right now.
And I mean, I'm gonna talk about what Dana White said yesterday.
There's a brand new team in the mix, and I'm gonna talk.
I'm gonna talk about that tomorrow.
All right, let's talk about championship weekend.
As I said at the top of this and in my block today, I hate a championship weekend.
I'm having a pity party about the Patriots not being there.
Let's start the kids.
City Chiefs, who beat the Tennessee Titans, 35 to 24.
The Chiefs, of course, came back from a deficit again, down by 10 2 different times and really after they took the lead, never look back.
Kansas City had 27 1st downs, the third down efficiency with 66 for 10.
Tennessee was three for 10.
That's You gotta win the first down battles for the third down battles.
And you know, Tony Roma was kind of talking about it during the game today, he said.
You have to get big runs.
You have to do a big Tennessee had to go for it three times on fourth down, one of those being a trick, a fake punt that they did, I think the most surprising part of the day, those Tennessee had 85 total rushing yards.
Kansas City had a 112 going into this game.
There was no way I would believe that the Kansas City Chiefs would L rush the Tennessee Titans.
I mean, the Tennessee and 210 passing yards.
They had like 88.
Prior to that, Derrick Henry just couldn't get things done.
Henry ended his day with Ah, 19 carries for 69 yards.
I mean, that's 3.
6 yards per carry.
That's that was Sony Michelle's carries this year.
That was in superior running backs against ah Chiefs defense that really, you know, cheese defense that that was known for being run all over me and Henry just had a bad game.
He was minus eight onto catches today in the passing game like I mean, things just did not go well for Derrick Henry.
It's 61 all purpose yards on the day you look a 10 to see.
Patrick Mahomes goes 23 for 35 294 yards, three touchdown, zero interceptions.
He rushed the ball other eight times for 53 yards, well over 300 yards in all purpose yards.
He was also the team's leading rusher.
Sammy Walk ins 114 yards and you could just see things today, I think, was the one touchdown thing was to Sammy walk ins, and it was really the touchdown that sealed the game for Kansas City.
The offense of line did a great job, and Mahomes had forever and a day to throw the ball and he let the ball go and the camera was still on.
Patrick Mahomes and I just touched down like you could just see when he launched the ball man.
And I'm telling you when he has the time, I don't knock on Patrick Mould. Mattrick.
Mahomes is a great talents, an absolute great talent, and one not is there.
I also I think he does benefit from having some of the fastest receivers in the National Football League? Absolutely, but the Chiefs are going to the Super Bowl.
It was probably my worst nightmare.
It was something I didn't want to see happen.
And I'm tourney because San Francisco is going Super Bowl, too.
And I hate San Francisco just as much. They hate the Chiefs.
I think that Jimmy Garoppolo is getting too much love for being a former Patriots quarterback, even though you know he could have taken last money.
Could've stayed on the team.
We gotta wait for Tom Brady to go, Okay? I'm not gonna bring Grapple for that, but I am.
I'm not forgiving him for saying he was better than Tom Brady.
I won't forgive him, but they win 37 to 20 today.
The narrative is that Jimmy Garoppolo has led to the San Francisco 40 Niners to the Super Bowl.
Grapple through the ball eight times for 77 yards.
He completed six passes.
I mean, do do I have to repeat that? Is that leading your team to the Super Bowl? Cause the last time I checked, that's that's not leading your team to the Super Bowl.
That's you participating in a game those air like Ryan Tannehill had 210 yards on today.
I don't know how you can turn around and you can tell me Jimmy Garoppolo lead this article.
40 Niners to the Super Bowl.
He completed six catches.
Aaron Rodgers, who people were ripping, fallen off a cliff.
Useless Ta threw two interceptions, Shelter for 326 yards and two touchdowns.
Jimmy Garoppolo, that people are praising for leading the 40 Niners in Super Bowl completed six catches for 77 yards and zero touchdowns.
Most are ran for 2020 yards.
Grapple ran from minus one yards on four rushes.
He averaged minus 0.
3 yards per run.
I mean, George Kittle, who is probably the best all around tight end in the NFL right now when it comes to blocking and catching blocked like a like a like a maniac today had 19 yards in receiving a depot.
Samuel had the most receiving yards on the day with 46 and yet Jimmy Garoppolo led the 40 Niners to the Super Bowl.
As I said at the top, I have no dog in the fight.
I don't want either team to win the Super Bowl.
I wish you'd just cancel it the next two weeks.
I gotta deal with two of the most insufferable fan bases in the NFL.
I'm gonna have to deal with Patriot fans telling me the Patriots never should have got rid of Jimmy Garoppolo.
Look, he just brought the 40 Niners to the Super Bowl.
Let me tell you what.
We saw what the 40 Niners discovered with Jimmy Garoppolo and we sought against Seattle in their first game.
Jimmy Garoppolo chokes under pressure.
So what? San Francisco is done and Kyle Shanahan's smart, smart coach what he's done, if he's taken all of the pressure offered Jimmy G.
He said, We're gonna run the ball.
We're gonna run it effectively.
We have a great defense with a great offensive line.
We're gonna run the ball, Jimmy.
You just have to manage the game.
You just manage the game.
It will take all the pressure off of you.
We're not gonna put the game on your shoulder because we've seen what happens when we put the game on your shoulders.
It doesn't work.
They When they lost the game in overtime to Seattle, Seattle did everything they could to give San Francisco the victory, and Jimmy Garoppolo couldn't do enough to get the win.
And now we're going to go into the Super Bowl with one of the most explosive offenses in the NFL with Patrick Mahomes, a defense that came alive the last couple of weeks against the best defense in the National Football League.
A great running team who we just saw the chief shut down.
And a quarterback who's yet to prove he can step up in the big game does drop Logan, his third ring in the 1st 1 that he's earned.
Does Patrick Mahomes bring the Lombardi back to Kansas City after 50 years? I don't care, and it'll just be another day.
I'm a football fan.
I'll watch the game.
I'm sad that we have one NFL game left on the year.
Don't forget to check out my YouTube channel on Wednesday.
I will be going live with master at work formally kissed the rings, also known as Taison.
We'll be previewing the Super Bowl will be talking about some of the Patriots rumors.
I don't think we'll be going into hiding over the next two weeks.
I'm still a big football fan. Don't forget.
Prior to the Super Bowl, I made you a Pro Bowl weekend.
I'm gonna try to get a guy on who's an XFL guy and try to get him on toe onto the show here and learn a little bit.
And ah, that's it. Okay.
And ah, I don't know.
With all that being said, guys, thank you so much for tuning in. Thank you.
The SportsCastr, for giving me the opportunity to come in here each and every night.
And, ah, top 10 reasons.
We should not watch the Super Bowl.
I'll always stay.
Watch the Super Bowl, man.
I'm too much of a football fan.
Joe the SportsCastr if given the opportunity coming here each never named.
Talk to Pats Nation.
Thank you, Apache nation of football fans from all over the NFL for coming in and watch a meeting.
Without all of you, I would never have contracts.
I never have a YouTube show, and I just be a big, fat, angry football fan screaming into a microphone on the Internet with all that being said, guys.
Thank you so much for tuning in.
I greatly greatly appreciated it.
Well, all that being said, thank you very much.
