one for me. You mentioned it in year in year turning now Kevin Garnett after 21 seasons in the NBA is calling it career. And listen I am a huge Kevin Garnett and and I never realized. What a good dude and how old. Much of hard worker he was until he came to
to one of the greatest Celtics of all time. OK it was Kevin Garnett who came in here and Ray Allen to who's part of a Big Three it was Kevin Garnett who came in here. And established a work ethic particularly on the defensive end of the floor. That to me was infectious.
approach where. In all these guys in the NBA they're bloody body. Kevin Garnett was old school in this respect. He had a genuine dislike for the opposition. Looked genuine dislike when he played the heat. He wanted to beat him cause he liked him when Ray Allen decided he was and reopen the Celtics and he was gonna go join the front running Miami Heat . He turned cold shoulder to rail is that screw you now. You wanted to you know be with the enemy you are the enemy I love that about Kevin Garnett love. Isn't that isn't it it's guys like him in Colby. In Jordan. He's kind of the last of those type of

first round draft picks have to be high impact players. It took Willie McGinest a long time to play to his potential. As the number four overall pick in the NFL draft whereas Troy Brown . Was an eighth rounder. That was a classic over achiever that was a great possession wide receiver and all by the way you Utah Mike Haynes has been a great return man Troy Brown . They called just about all the return of records for patriots in kick in part returns particularly impart returns. I mean he played defensive back when they were riddled with the injury in and they needed him to do that so. You can crap on Troy Brown all you want Steve but you'd be wrong. He had a problem with a good. Quality and I was the guy I.
four yards per return during his career had two touchdowns. Returning punts. Troy Brown averaged. Ten point four yards per punt return and had three touchdowns. As a return man so. I don't like you very

what is that will be in the rules. That go with the Baltimore Ravens . Minus one point. They are on alcohol won there yet. The raiders the Mike she had ever seen in this game. Rather

Bruce Armstrong who was an analyst Stanley Morgan. You know like timer Troy Brown lifetime patriot Ty Law granted he went elsewhere but most of his career was here in new wing one. So to me. I think that should almost be a prerequisite a guy that spanned. A majority if not all of his career and patriots uniform not half of it or less than half of it that's all I'm saying. Ethan and in. No way. Not are you kidding me Deion Branch . Off tees and I'll take got to put you when you come in studio next hour. As much as I love Deion Branch not even close. I mean Stanley more he couldn't win a Stanley Morgan's jock strap for the ball. I mean. No way. I personally I would give Randy Moss in his short time here more of an impact and Deion Branch . Wes Welker I would take over Deion Branch . Troy Brown I would definitely take over Deion Branch not eyes outlets and I like Dion. No. No way should he be on that list let's say a little Danny granted tenure or next in southern new England sports Saturday and WEEI. I don't. An honorary category Mo Lewis could be I don't know the greatest patriots the ball well what do you know that day did you know the odds are more Lewis holiday was just a couple days ago. Fifteen years ago 58 years ago that hit on Drew Bledsoe changed the history of the patriots franchise. Do you stir things that would keep Evans telling the story. On some radio station
deserves to be on that list Tedy Bruschi to me is the Troy Brown of the defense. Okay. AAA life timer in a huge impact I thought he had on this franchise love Teddy. Vince Wilfork. Again another good kick. By patriots fans out there. From the 860 Drew Bledsoe turnaround this franchise how can he not be on the list. I listen I think that's a fair question. Because Bledsoe along with Parcells turn the fortunes of this franchise around. I think what kills Drew Bledsoe and this is unfortunate because he was such a good guy in such a good player for the patriots put. The fact that Tom Brady took over for him and has just taken this franchise to unbelievable heights. Actually hurts Drew Bledsoe I think it's sad because Bledsoe deserves a ton of credit. But because Brady took over for him and they won three Super Bowls in four years in the immediate aftermath of Bledsoe I think that I think their efforts drew. I think. Your your your argument is is perfect I I don't disagree with me at all when it comes to Drew Bledsoe . I know everybody loves to give the crap assault occurred in the world for turning his franchise around I give the crass

Scott Cordischi looks back on the week's memorable moments. The Red Sox are counting down the magic numbers to post season and the Patriots are winning against all odds. With significant time off between games who will recover for game time, Jimmy G, Jacoby Brissett or QB TBA?
he has in his head coach. Did you see the special on Rodney Harrison NFL network last night. I missed by the way so I turned on the NFL network last night they did top ten patriots of all time and I turned denominator on number one which I knew it was going to be Tom Brady. So I don't know who numbers two through ten war. I should go in the into an NC state they have a like to know who picked two through ten were for per greatest patriots of all time but right after that they did a football like for the Rodney Harrison . Which I don't was in a terrific one and I'll always love to Rodney both personally and professionally. What people one overriding
know that. A lot of the gist of the this thing on Rodney Harrison was you know he was considered a dirty player and as time and he is one of those guys that. When he wasn't on your team hated them when he is on your team you love them. But for him to only be a Pro Bowl twice to me is ridiculous I can't leave the Rodney Harrison was only probable twice in a slower John Hannah and number I think that's a great pick John Hannah number two. I'm

Brian MacPherson (@brianmacp), Red Sox beat writer for the Providence Journal, joins Scott and Jason from Florida as the Sox regular season winds down. As an AL MVP voter, he's unable to discuss much about the MVP candidates however he does give insight into the Cy Young competition. He reminds us how the pitching rotation and bullpen have turned around and why you should mark your calendars for the second weekend of October when there's potential for Red Sox ALCS action and the return of Tom Brady to the Patriots, in Cleveland!
sports Radio One 03 point seven WEEI. They weren't ready. Delivers. No Red Sox win it though don't. The magic number for winning the division is form that magic number for getting that close.

Erik Scalavino - Patriots Football Weekly 9-17-16
Erik Scalavino, journalist for @Patriots.com, joins Scott and Jason ahead of this Sunday's game vs Miami. Don't assume a cakewalk, it could backfire! Scal maintains his prediction of a 2-2 record with Jimmy G and goes over who will and won't suit up. He also explains his position on who's more impactful, Belichick or Brady...hint, it's not the coach.
the patriots -- much of a chance to win in Arizona without Tom Brady in fact Eric I would say that even with Tom Brady . People thought that would've been a tough game to win because Arizona's just and so good at home under Bruce aryan so.
me yet but her question. It is. You know. If you were Tom Brady's day you know he's gonna do a lot of looking often. You know strictly down a lot and we you know we
night winning in Arizona. Paired with the eleven and five season by Matt Cassel in 2008 has given rise to the question okay we nobody debates the greatness of Tom Brady your Bill Belichick I think it is universally held.

A look into the past week ICYMI with Scott Cordischi and Jason Taravella. Kevin Harlan's eventful play by play as a teenager streaks across the field during an uneventful MNF match between the LA Rams and SF 49ers. We also say congratulations to the Providence Journal's Jim Donaldson on his retirement, you'll see him on the links!
can't believe to get rid of Steve Israel's got it believing Garrity Terry Glenn Scott and every time is this about those every time Belichick was proven right like like the only guy that really had. Great see good success after leaving nor I remember Greg Spires early in Belichick's career hitter aspires went to Tampa Bay was a good. Defensive tackle day. In a long headed he is young or too you know saying they'll have a decent year to go for the most part Belichick usually knows when to get out from under. A contract or a player is proven right more often than not way more often than not. Absolutely I think that once you could you can nitpick with is that Deion Branch one. Because you left you left the team don't you think that that after that year had that you had Deion Branch or maybe some semblance of good receivers outside Doug Gabriel . You got the impression I think you're probably went in May be put it you know Deion Branch light up the world can't help but I think he works here I think in New England he works. But the point

be able to go to Arizona and win that football game about Tom Brady even with the Brady I think a lot of people felt that would have been a tough game to win look at Arizona they. I mean they were virtually unbeatable on adversary ends at home and the patriots went there in and beat them and I just stop played solid on an every phase of the game offense defense and special teams and I mean you know let's not forget we talked about Stephen Gostkowski last segment and you know he puts a 53 yarder was that I am the unknown and look at their field rocket
