Belichick and he is. In some ways taken on the role that Rodney Harrison used the play. That Tedy Bruschi want Edwards he was sort of the I have been so fortunate in recent years did you would be heart and soul
Three Things 7-23-16
Scott Cordischi and Jason Taravella highlight the week's items of interest ICYMI.
I talked about the sock deal before the start of the show. Houston Texans star defensive end JJ watt that was big stories we underwent back surgery. There's still unsure as to how much time he's going to mess but there's some speculation he could miss the patriots week three gain. Here in new England and you know I would suggest obviously that's good news or Jimmy gee I mean not having to face a different guys two time defensive player of the year in the NFL yeah so. That would be good news so be good breaks for the New England Patriots not that I don't think eighteen I think they can beat Houston at home with JJ watt with Jimmy grapple putt. I think that makes things a little bit more manageable when you don't have to face to get a lot of that's the case the other young. Quarterback like Rob -- facing wise I think the last time they played on why had two tackles in our one assisted tackle he really didn't do much but still to your point. If you're going to play the Houston Texans who seemed now that they have also while like a much more balanced football team. As somebody that may give you trouble

Scott ends the show with more Patriots calls, and your concerns over the playoffs.
can be a pretty good. You know third fourth fifth option for Tom Brady I think the acquisition of Chris Hogan is a nice one because let's be honest here for a second. Guys like Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola they're in the Wes Welker mold and those guys can get banged up and hurt me on the shelf. A lot more often they can be on
SNE Sports Saturday 7-23-16 segment 3
Scott responds to your comments on football PSI and shares his results from his independent testing
press conference. In the days after the AFC championship win over the Indianapolis Colts when deflate heat broke. That was Tom Brady behind the microphone and the one thing I'll say two and Tom's defenses this I remember when that whole story broke him.
SNE Sports Saturday 7-23-16 Segment 2
Scott takes your calls, texts and tweets on the expectations of David Ortiz in clutch situations and how the Patriots will defend the AFC East with revolving QB's.
you realize you know what we still don't have the heir apparent Tom Brady thank god he's coming back after four games and we get a get somebody in here. Not the best case scenario is to to grapple goes out there and plays well. And now the patriots are sitting on a huge asset because they can say hey listen we have the heir apparent to Tom Brady if and when he retires or will hold onto this guy or be. We've got ourselves a gigantic trade chip here and
very good NFL quarterback and in this case it replacement eventually for Tom Brady . We need look no further than within the division down in Miami. Again the dolphins have struggled. Mightily. Since Dan Marino retired. They just haven't found the answer at that position and that is in large part why they had ten. Such a bad franchise. Since that point. You know they've had some quote unquote flash is in the end you know Chad Pennington did OK for the images did okay but did nothing really special. Those are just average guys. They've been searching for that quarterback since number thirteen we added many many years ago. You know it's it's it's been like twenty years since they've been. Good at that position. So you're you're right about that. But that's why am excited as the patriots fan too for these first four games I'm not happy to Tom Brady had to accept the four game suspension on pissed off and listen. I'm not gonna sit here and try to convince you that Tom Brady was absolutely. Positively. 100% innocent. I'm not sure that he was okay. There's a lot of things that you can point to that's a Tom Brady . Was guilty of something whether it was the destruction of the cell phone weather was. His press conference. In the immediate aftermath of this when he just looked so long comfortable behind the microphone and did not come on an issue a flat denial. And any knowledge of wrongdoing or deflating football's. Whether it's you know the text messages where they call. You know McNally the deflator. Bit there's there's enough evidence to say Tom Brady may indeed have done something I don't know okay. There's also enough evidence to say that's you know science or tell you
By being that back up that we think is capable to replace Tom Brady when the day comes that number twelve hangs it up or. It gives them options. Either he could be great trade chip or maybe Tom Brady gets treated late in his career I know that sounds crazy even suggests that. Or is he just another guy as he

Scott Cordischi, solo in studio opens the show with a recap of last night's Red Sox/Twins game, Sox pitching and a look at the Patriots 2016 roster.
They throw to first and they just get Ortiz. And then that Hanley Ramirez makes the final out of the game so the Red Sox do fall to the twins. 221 they also fall out of first place behind Baltimore Orioles now backed up. On top of the American League east a half game ahead of the Red Sox are some real hard to criticize Barack. I mean with the season. Big Papi is haven't in his farewell tour. It's pretty hard to criticize the guy OK I mean he's just wreaking. The ball this
Brian MacPherson 7-16-16
Brian MacPherson (@brianmacp), Red Sox beat writer for the Providence Journal, joins Scott and John to discuss the latest moves of the Red Sox. Brian breaks down the trade for left-hander, Drew Pomeranz.
One 03 point seven relatively easy guy. Five and Iran over the Red Sox I'm John he's got Red Sox and yankees again tonight at Yankee Stadium . I'm a person covers the Sox for the Providence journal he joined us here on so little in the sports editor Brian good morning how are you. Great so. Is this fool's gold we're kind of looking at here or does this team really have legitimately some. Is someone going behind and pagan above positive momentum in going into game two with the Yankees series tonight. I would think is pretty much what you'd expect from this team on the night but he gets to capable starting pitching . Out to get triples home runs to get you know to get them to work some sort of action get guys on
Steven Minicucci, ESQ. 7-16-16
Steven Minicucci, Esq. joins Scott and John to analyze Tom Brady ending his legal battle with the NFL and Roger Goodell. What does this mean for the future of the Hall of Fame QB?
sports Radio One and three point seven. Brady. Was up with a Tom Brady was so. Born on this. Don't forget about the plate get a long time ago. So Janet. Stephen face mask. But that's what I hate it when he's right. Got a lot. I don't think Tom Brady ever made this about himself like totally disagree with what he says well he's coming about he's gloating because he was right yes these guys because Brady all right only had to accept the punishment for. This was never about Tom Marino of course it was a big minutes because. If he's not close enough to the story here to understand what the real dealers he's only looking at it from afar and looking at it from. Let's just say it ESPN tended way of looking at things and by the way if I would suggest to Stephen A Smith that if this were him and he ran Tom Brady's shoes are. He's a privately though aren't you likely in the oh my go. Anybody in their right mind Scott if you were being persecuted and you knew that you were innocent. You fight this to the bitter end I mean this is that the. This is the guy's reputation you know I mean outside of New England. You know this guy's getting crushed from a reputation standpoint so exactly Steven Smith who wouldn't like this it's it's really good to be backs got someone for a wants is John you sound like an
like a guilty man behind the podium because. We had never seen Tom Brady looked that uncomfortable. At the problem what if all he had to do from the very beginning and I'm surprised the patriots
points here but let me ask you this. Where have you seen Tom Brady's game slip recently. Well. And don't point it's going to begin to understand that we understand that there three years left in
