the show because. But it -- kind of run down here like Logan Mankins was seemingly six months ago yeah -- know -- talking about a for awhile and cut down day it was yesterday in
real time based games -- like twelve years ago -- now before Logan Mankins we. We all work very hard like the final three weeks to get that team on the field Monday night and and
like the question going forward for me in its related back to Logan Mankins but it's just the offensive line in general. How much they're going to be able to. Improve upon what they did last year Brady was sacked forty times continued to run block. Because this team has always been a much more balanced team win win. I mean they're able to run the ball and throw the ball more cell whether this is going to be another example. A lot of hand wringing and frustration. And screaming at -- at the radios and televisions about a move the Bill Belichick made when. You know six weeks or a year from now you look back and say they may -- got it right in this one are much are you feel about the -- are not sure they got it right. I'm not sure the patriots in other words are better team better equipped for Super Bowl today than they were a week ago. Well I mean let's let's go step by step. Don't want Bill Belichick usually gets it right or more often than not more often than not he's -- -- benefit of the doubt for that

Sports Saturday with Mustard and Johnson: Logan Mankins traded, 8-30-14
Craig and Larry take a look at the trade from earlier this week that brought sophomore TE Tim Wright to the Pats in exchange for veteran Pro Bowl guard Logan Mankins.
week for football fans in New England -- was the trading of Logan Mankins . The Tampa. I do like that tight and just a snippet but the guys playing -- does not have a playbook Romney did it corrupt or -- for that matter. But he it seems they have very good hands good speed but jobs at the same to get open and had four catches. But it's still goes back to the philosophy. Of how we -- a Malloy Richard Seymour. Vrabel. Willie McGinest did -- checked just his. Seems to possibly as I do what's best for the football team. And he decided that they
to her style I'm down here. That's how I read the fine Logan Mankins VO if he was the best out of a mediocre offensive line right now they have an average. Offensive line so. In
if you have a mediocre offensive line. I don't know if removing Logan Mankins is really the best way to keep Tom Brady untouched this year. -- is good as he was now and we understand

York. Point which is a good one is why narco trade. For Troy Tulowitzki by the way I'm looking at his numbers are here is at seven years left 120 plus million the last years a club option for fifteen million with a four million dollar buyout. She get a guy for seven years in the prime of his career could be in the middle your lineup. And a shortstop we all agree on the potential of Troy Tulowitzki but also the risk because he's been fragile correct. Okay my point about bringing up Red Sox pitching as my first reaction to Troy Tulowitzki is if you're trading for Tulowitzki. What you have left to trade for pitching you can't just cavalierly say. Well they're gonna
return there's got to be one guy in that deal. Needed to Hanley Ramirez prospect. Or they established Allen Craig's under contract for four years as well as units as it is you've got to sell. The Marlins in the Rockies in the -- gave up Troy Tulowitzki or G a college student and you're giving me. -- Bogart's in a package of prospects. Well I think to a minor
and I'm sorry I'm giving away I'm I'm saying bye bye to Troy Tulowitzki is much he's been the ultimate tease. You've given me Zander -- arts and I was hidden at the Mendoza line who's had all the potential and might not even live up to. That's -- -- headliner at yourself in a trade that's hard sell. That's a really hard sell you'll what Henry always in where that two top prospects in baseball now I didn't -- whether it's like treated Jon Lester effort justice. I felt they got as much as they could in this circumstance OK -- stuff. Repeat that -- felt they

All the talent in chip Kelly's offense in Philadelphia as a state to that. But before we go there let's talk a little bit about about these Carolina players. One I was very encouraged with which is the rookie Calvin Benjamin. Big strong guy big hands he was literally grabbing things out -- last last game. That would be the football. But the but the guy wasn't too impressed with the -- as a great player and like on second a lap last his performance. Is Cam Newton he showed some things and instinctively as a quarterback elect the world -- well it was with a foot points where would he was doing nothing mobile in the pocket. Brought it if you're the Panthers do you want him running in pre season. Maybe not and I'm just so used to seeing and that's kind of how he built as resonant. Well that's true that's true and and obviously I think navy teams that have running quarterbacks -- you know maybe more prone to look. Mediocre pre season because they're gonna wanna save their guys. But yeah I mean everybody is killer RG three Toronto last week right yes so maybe cam Newton's got a little bit an advantage from the neck up piece. Smart to save himself but you know I thought we showed
