Of the best of open which is just down the road show. I have no idea rich yet and yet -- but that's a big story today -- needed. -- -- -- we just checked with the airlines. To be happy to know your pilot's name for the flight today. Captain should you know. Pitiful I couldn't think of for instance -- -- The -- -- is gonna fly from -- New York Post called the chicken of the sea -- Up front page at a and what are they saying about the patriots ravens -- down their means it's their closest -- countries of famous people and for the ravens -- two car buzz on the front -- on the front of -- Harbaugh -- wins in the and the niners win that the two Brothers will go against it sounds you know I'd -- like yeah. They're Brothers. And -- god really. Yeah and and if the patriots went in the Joshua and talking about disorder and what he's my -- out it's a rematch of 2008. Between the girl Julia I think both in the playlist. Like four years ago yeah they do remember that swear to god they did. And the giants and patriots -- not every match Brady goes against the pound team. Our operators from Michigan no -- from San Francisco long haul him Taylor he these are all new storyline is right -- creator of the just idolize Joseph -- swear to god Dino. I mean don't they went to the world at Thursday we got another day of break in this thing down. And it's it's slim Pickens to be sure in no particular order we find about. Find out about the fact that double check admires and read your kid in today's Paper. We find out that Vince Wilfork went to school with Ed Reed at the U. We find out that Kevin Faulk who's been to four Super Bowl says it's a circus. Don't let it distract you. And Brandon Spikes as he's going to have to master his emotions for this game and not get to -- -- we are scrape the bottom of the barrel baby. And we get two more days three more days or more days which leads into the observation if -- when the patriots make the Super Bowl this two week thing is going to be. Yeah nauseated deadly tunnel about the Celtics are about to go wrong Willits at giants and the patriots and assure that play in the Super -- I think socket look -- -- I -- -- have. The Internet here. I can look up and confirm I think it was. Giants patriots and giants one we will spend I think a little bit of time every day talking about the giants' pass rush won't. That we will wreaked Havoc. Four years I -- us I don't get a principal actually played super that a limited a British and its coaches by the Belichick and profitable. There -- edits your neighbor quarterback Ricky Jerry came to quarterbacks -- it's about revenge in we'd love revenge. They want thing that's that's happening it's happening to me. I can feel it it's happening. They're doing it to me again you know that's why I bright and try to read my prediction on Monday yes -- -- wanna get it. Get up before they they it's that where -- -- winning you over -- wearing me down and one guy who's done -- one guy -- -- Portland. It is pissed that -- is the -- -- of your media person. Ago one of four ways each week and there's only one if -- Boston it's really -- the real Safeway in. No offense to UBU -- on the same way you meet -- say. Ravens in a blow ravens and close game patriots in the blow patriots close game. If you pick one of those four in new cool -- above the fray if you pick any of the other three year in danger of being in the changes. No -- -- by via Internet assassins in the in the fans in the homers in the stooges I mean if you pick out last week I picked. The patriots in a row over the Broncos and all week. You're gonna kick some but what's wrong with you don't you remember nine -- member of the jets last year. I tried to look at the game isolated look at the game on its merits as topple that has nothing to do it just and I believe them in fact I think -- loss helped them. As motivation I picked that game and I think I've picked it right. But. If you pick obviously you picked the ravens. Guilt in not prepared the ravens -- -- -- only way to get. -- -- to just above the freeway and stay clean. The year is to say I think it's going to be real close game tough game patriots in the win 2723. That's that's the way to do. I didn't do Monday I'm not gonna do now but but back to the news. Adam beat me down or Mangini and these don't -- its facts and it's just gonna did you expert analysis it is not. You know debris is the best -- have and Lewis is a tough guy and don't forget 2009. Terrell such -- Soros does is great strips I mean didn't did you see -- -- X now that's a little illustrated azalea and it but here's my question is. He's talking about scheme mostly wants three guys in the other and not that they can only works not these in the middle so good. But he shows how the -- Brady who dropped back and coverage who they cover. Who gets in and gets who's in in Brady's face who makes him for the ball to quickly. And of course who picked it off on the -- It's a great breakdown but but the question is my question is. He can't be about scheme because teams can scheme. The Broncos could -- at the patriots won nine straight -- You can scheme which you need to personnel to execute -- yes so so that's all relevant it's important scheme matters. They'll have a good scheme patriots -- good scheme but you -- have the players they have the players. Certainly better defensive players in the patriots that a defensive plays from the Broncos -- but. Do those plays this rate the -- you know Ray Lewis 36. Degrees 33 who the players we -- You know. Recently because it doesn't matter what they did two years ago doesn't matter what they -- in 2000 when the ones who possible wooden -- -- those -- place so superior to the last nine opponents the patriots play and -- so good. That they can do things. That the Brady hasn't seen and do them no. With with with that criticism and and and do and do them so that you can take the hottest offense in the NFL and is grinding tool. The answer to that is yes but I would add only for a limited. Amount of time between Brady and Belichick if they do some things the ravens but the patriots have not seen and it's effective early on. Notre the sense that Brady and Belichick will figure that out and just like they've done like and half the games of the streak right or losing in the first quarter. When they were and now on when Denver ran for 163 in the first quarter they went from a 43234. Back to. For more -- buffalo when was it 21 not just one or not right anyone not Clinton. They've been down many times before it's not just an explosive off -- -- it's an it's an explosive offense that and adjust. On the fly in the and make. In game adjustments and went to halftime than a week to week that they do as they. As the game's going on and they do as well as any so your feeling a little queasy about 23417. No that was Monday as a -- No that was Tuesday of Tuesday's 3470 -- than it was 3520. Imminent government went today them. -- -- -- obviously it's shrinking five predictions from the get one right -- -- The other 6177790852038885250850.
