I'm a moment to take time out here because I need I need to cool out here because look. I am not gonna put up with this what does so many people I keep telling me about retain talent we have on that team either break stop that. Stop there. -- -- Talent is Gerri to point and up all the yards to wait she blob. -- So hard drives. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Pricking F five year old. As a result of hearing that. With the exception of our midday host here on WEEI -- -- became my all time. Favorite mid -- host that's instant radio classic gold -- so -- middays WQAM. In Miami. Join us on the AT&T hotline good morning again good to talk deal. They may take you so it -- -- might hear that oh my god. Really -- -- thought I don't strippers that. I didn't realize that -- ain't that much like. Well I watched that message here man got it was. It was just that was awful here as one of the worst defense is about the worst defense in arcane history this -- That went viral it's instant radio classic gold has it been a blessing or curse -- I've been pretty cool I mean you know in a lot of people recognized Dick -- You know I I got a lot it's not it. It's I mean that's just how like you know I've got a lot of action force awards I loved it I dig it out played it. Are covered by local raucous belly up then it all that it -- that was two years old so it. It's always been -- than that I that could -- -- about. Did you get in any trouble and you've been suspended wanted twice in the past. That yet. Yes have been suspended and fired -- the things I've set on the radio show where. You know -- they understand me because that's kind of like I MO was when I was back at the player Miami so I think that latitude. Gave me the date immediately a treat -- a little bit to be able to say those things but the -- people. -- stay open really cool to me it's a great program they love -- I love them but I just expect greatness from them. Did you you mentioned that that's the worst defense in Miami history well have you seen Boston College lately. -- -- Thank -- in what struck me about that is is that all kits in the New England area and I was recruited by PC back in the day. And there were two of the first cities really back -- was at stake. And of course three Syracuse and Boston College are really the only destination but -- it. So I mean I look at those three and the -- that program is now in outplayed of course it's don't begin. Played against suspect in the L Larry games and all that crap it. -- -- -- -- it was a great football program I mean now this what do they are I think a lot of the influx in going. With the big -- -- now going to to a horrible conference the Atlantic Coast Conference. That's not gonna help in Boston College attract more recruits going to do a conference that. A little bit better than the big -- -- Al Golden -- Boston College will Al Golden picks Boston College. Here's what I don't buy it. You click it once 75 now. What speech it's a jesuit school we're gonna get decked out from -- not Notre Dame they don't have a gigantic. Art television package deal so they thought the two million dollars. Track somebody like that to meet with -- extradite. That makes the most sense the guy and the patriots that we sit right there in the backyard and he's a little bit debt it in our reputation. Why don't get that opportunity BA head football coach again. Was do you get a sense of Al Golden -- covets this job or someday want to you know come back here and and and coach of Boston College or is he. Happy there. He's happy here I think you're seeing the -- without a lot -- -- here's the issue that BC at -- -- Miami. PC facility. Would aren't the greatest. And I was better than the University of Miami but he does imply any facilities aren't as good as what I played and it was back in the eighties that. It's the worst facility in the United States use the vehicle itself -- You know we we and we played at your ball out and let the sun life. It's no doubt it offer BK we got a lot of our reputation. And a lot of -- all take it away when they're not the only meteors also well. We really don't have the facilities and in the past we were able liked except the open championship what are well. That would watch and so what I needed seven years at least 42 and 35. Virginia numbers. Is this. If the swagger gone and obviously the record would indicate the swagger should be -- but when you always think about the -- it's always this network comes to mind is swagger cocky impressionists. That makes me throw -- what I hear that took a -- air Jimmy slacker is waiting right. It's not barking I mean for your question. We talked a lot we talked a lot out of eighteen are all about absolutely but at the bottom right. Sports Illustrated voted the most hated team in history the our our our sports. A couple years to golf Oprah like that this is the flyers. Want to read it we talk trash but we brought. I mean right now it is Rex Ryan I -- we talked throughout adult when it. On to the dolphins now Dan. The guys -- any reason to believe that the patriots are gonna get trapped. In this game. This Sunday any reasonably that -- -- up to the one the last pitchers among the last four by an average score by an average of nineteen points they are role in the won their last. Five I believe by an average of 47. Anything we expecting anything but another route led by Tom Brady. A nightmare and I look very third one insects in the last two years of the patriot tried to go back three years to 35. Hours of them that. I don't radio you guys as they they'd -- linebackers and a really good lie about it but they let that I was like -- I say. So there's the -- that -- is gonna take its guidance that's what the scene. They go for five if he want but it's good that it's apparently. Talking about eighteen at one point 16. Games -- stop many people. So -- what it should be in the conversation for the MVP but for the crappy it -- What broke in now that you won't do the most the team offensively. In the AFC -- that's -- -- I don't give a crap about being 27 ranked. They can about the 24 -- and the -- over the ball termite and think of that market and this -- the last one for the patriots. Quiet as. Hey -- looking long term big picture is had to heal the answer for the dolphins that Sanchez clearly is not for the jets. You know I I like Brian I see and with him I'd seen it there's potential. Great. -- quickly rolling out I'll just say that. That means I have to be -- potential problem because you -- well a -- relationship. With this quarterback it's gonna -- into the final game the year. For -- career record at Olympic great matchup Smart and a yeah walls of spell check you -- -- yet. Part -- And that relationship with that quarterback. So -- -- get it also upstairs to get in the general manager is the general manager at football coach and the quarterback all working at saint. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Is brutal you Redick I like Brandon Marshall oh just -- -- since -- went over a thousand yards right import to the routers. What what -- -- -- didn't -- -- -- I didn't take it from Michigan State okay. Field. It's just quietly in the vehicle put out a -- -- kids. He's got a great player we're going to be David Carr. The term and I'd see the ability to better. But again it's guys like let's -- -- -- -- the components are not your quarterback -- your quarterbacks -- -- or not. Like top rate equipment sets that Tom Brady as a quarterback not it is great skill would be able pro ball it's his mark check -- -- -- That spot that there -- some spots these two guys art and also box them out they -- game that's what makes them special. Dan did you ever. And use any at a rolled given needed the -- to get up for games. And when you see I took anabolic steroids probably for. My NFL career six years. Forty years in college. Now we're using that what was important this is. Animal -- My -- so that's that's a new -- today. And to always getting these drugs were going to be at that. Somebody else because. We're looking for the advantage that equate what I hear people go like start with bonds all but still jokes like. So we started his career for giants fans to watch him an extra ten years. OK but yet when it -- -- larger who'll take drugs and die we celebrate them. Okay we'll get back when that's sync up makes sense to me I I don't -- sense that we are trying to expand their careers. Where were you getting we -- getting tested were you beating the system or always just and nod to aspect them. So. What do you think our guys beating the system or they clean. Course. Oh my god guys are taken human growth hormone and synthetic car truck all the pot shots now in -- well -- center. All they ordered -- -- -- -- or what do you think they're sort of -- L currently before accuracy when people start to get old burglar expert in the start but don't. We figured it out going Whitman. But how big guy in the doctor's prescription. And given testosterone such economic growth hormone shots. Pulled the -- are doing today -- -- apricot seed is right on when he said that. Also you bought step. Optic create all this other stuff but there's new stuff every single day that comes out that app we can say how much does that help you. What kind of a difference -- That's press 600 pounds with college. Ball. Off I don't know totally -- good accurate and they'll. If that if they got 600 at the same time. One time 600. It's 635.
