I -- were were kind of up against the clock here but real quickly they did change the NFL star quarterback rule. In July of 2011. They expanded the game day roster from 45 to 46 players. And they changed the whole rule about the emergency inactive player. And and -- tackle Roy could not if something happened it to Mark Sanchez. They couldn't stick the uniform on him and have him available as an emergency quarterback later on he's an active today period I'd -- no matter what thought he was number 46 and was active he's. Street clothes inactive. So if something did happen to Sanchez it's Tim Tebow till you drop or some other guy clever -- -- was the emergency quarterback for the patriots for a long time and Mulder noted how do you do not know that this this is a bit noise. It's been a shifting ruled over the last two to three years they believe they've messed around a little bit in consequential accorsi. Out there on Twitter it is for the clarification to the rule -- we appreciate that them. I let's go around the table real quickly and see what we think is going to happen tomorrow night that you elect him we'll start -- -- who's gonna win. We're a very interesting game are you know I'm gonna pick the pets by seven. No matter one. No matter who and why is what I'm good snack pack and was that you know I'm gonna pick the pats by seven lives you know gonna pick the okay. But by seven by seven -- that. I'm Gordon Richards is while -- my pick from or in the week I feel like both teams are gonna have to do a decent. Job of moving the ball I still feel like the patriots are going to be -- on them with the thinning in the secondary and the ability to make this team pretty one dimensional which I think that. There -- situation can be neutralized the bill I'm going 37 the third Leo will be sort of a high scoring game. And I think some of those thirty year -- garbage numbers from the pitcher Steve and I still thinking about myself. I mean if -- when this thing twenties haven't when he for the too close game ending at the very entertaining -- -- the weather's gonna play a little bit of a factor I don't think it's going to be. The shootout that I think him. You know we've been we've been looking for from these two teams but I had been booked into going to be a move the ball. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Yes the content. A dosages they'd go -- your eyes and ears and nose but you know I'm -- doing and witnessing what is important in on this a 35 points for the patriots because that's -- default. But I do think it's going to be a fairly high scoring affair LC 3528. Patriots win. And we all think they're gonna win and so does Vegas and they are favored on despite fact that they had -- -- were -- -- -- have to trust Vegas all but. We've gone back to the the other -- fault but the other default position we have -- that they know something that that you know they usually get this thing more right than wrong. We got to get out of here Matt thank you for -- producing this whole thing we will be back next Sunday it's Sunday Night Football. So will be on later. I hear your -- At the wrong with bringing in some some stones here and sympathy for somebody and it is and a us enjoy the football everybody will be back next week.

Particularly in a year where the Red Sox have struggled while trying to integrate numerous young players into regular big league roles, accusations that Red Sox prospects are overrated -- whether by the team or writers -- have been widespread. Jim Callis of MLB.com joins the show to take stock of the matter, and to discuss the team-building impact of overrating and underrating prospects.
With the trade deadline looming, the next few days will be defined by how teams value prospects -- and their potential long-term contributions -- against big leaguers with established track records who can address immediate needs. Are prospects being valued accurately? Red Sox left-hander Andrew Miller -- once one of the two key chips that sent Miguel Cabrera from the Marlins to the Tigers -- assesses the matter.
A compelling case can be made that July 24, 2004, represents as significant a landmark as any date in modern Red Sox history. On that day, a memorable brawl between the Red Sox and Yankees served as a catalyst for an epic 10-9 walkoff victory for the Red Sox over New York and indomitable closer Mariano Rivera, a game cited by many members of the 2004 team as pivotal in Boston's first championship run in 86 years. Ian Browne, who covers the Red Sox for MLB.com and authored Idiots Revisited, discusses the landmark game.
