What's your desert island drink McGee viewer tool I should say it this way what's your electric chair drink because this is a drinking holiday. It if you could. Only have one more drink.

Reid Jamieson say there you go that's nice timing so in addition to when he caught not ask you to call it and give me your favorite treat but. That's part of the conversation you're dike because it is Saint Patrick's Day and will celebrate here until 10 o'clock at 617779793. Says as for. The local sports scene. Nationally today ideas he had a couple of guys that I light. In the roles that they have now on TV Stephen basement and Herm Edwards. Taking some shots at the patriots. And I think they've they've from a national perspective probably speak for a lot of people. Around the country because this is not been a great off season for the patriots as you know. Today they signed each taveras cadet. Now I'm show after tweeting now he's the replacement potentially for. Shane Vereen at 38 catches a year ago 51 targets. And looks like the receiving back to replace lingering but carries pretty damn good. At thirty shaft there's got to come down a little bit when he says well there's your Shane Vereen a replacement. Hey Fareed just set the record for most catches by running back in the super ball so let's see taveras cadet. Before your pro on Appalachian State you would for a little bit before say he's the official go to replacement for sure entering. But they also had and my god this is scary your pats fan do you see a list of quarterbacks who ran for visit today. Terence Newman proudly frat Fletcher Terrelle brown holy smokes. What a collection of 78 and 79 rated Madden cornerbacks that you went to baton. And you go to free agency beginning of the year there's millions Terence Newman's. There's a million Terrelle browns. There's a million Bradley Fletcher they are the prototypical. Go to 79 cornerback in Madden. You can sign every day of the week and twice on Sunday they had all three and that is a scary. Scary group. It's a for a look at that group a gold. Meant you better stick to what you have maybe Logan Ryan Malcolm alerts draft picks. Are better than trying to bring in Terence Newman or Bradley Fletcher. Or Terrelle brown. Who what was that the forty niners that is a Motley Crue but that's that's when you're trying to get at this point. To replace Revis and Browner in your secondary you're Super Bowl secondary is gone. Here bigoted Terence Newman and Terrell brown at Bradley Fletcher. 78801980. Apply their mad rankings if you looked him up right now in the book sell. It's a topic because the Austin had not been good night can't win the Super Bowl on March I get that. But Stephen basement and hurt Edwards took the first take today to react to what's going on here. With the patriots and Stephen they started out the conversation patio at the patriots are trouble right now. If we're talking about defending your Super Bowl crown. They're in a world of trouble because they didn't win a Super Bowl in the last ten years until they had revisit brown. You know in this second down that had a lot to do with the success that they were able to accrue throughout this season. And without those guys that's gonna put even more pressure on Tom Brady. Which once again makes it seem incredibly young theater one of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history. But it is what it is. He's ends and it is what it is which is perfect if your patriots fan that's Belichick's goat to. But he started out with the patriots are in trouble and pointed out that they have not won in ten years without a Revis or Browner and a secondary. And he's entirely right. And has been my reacts when patriot fans have said all that responded if way to do that we don't gonna have to find and afford to because. You're not real or place the skill Leeson the offseason maybe you can during it the trade portion of the season. You find it Aqib Talib but during the offseason. It's unlikely. And 99%. A likely gonna find the talent of Revis and Browner. And even to the year next year you're down rated quarterback and so obviously. The patriots are doing differently Steve Nate thinks that leads them to be in trouble. I'm Herm Edwards who was a defensive back in the NFL. Went on to talk about the loss of Browner in Revis and how big daddy's for the Patriots defense. You look at the back into their defense New England they lose Brower whose Regis that's big because this team became a man to man team similar to win. Ty law and Bruce feels great defense were put together they had to move through a lot of man to man that helped them to get off the field on third down to allow Tom Brady's possessed the ball didn't give up a lot of points so. They did a lot of great things with the corners they had not they lost. Karma not to talk about. The patriots inability to draft at that position and I guess the guys that were talking about veteran players like Newman and Fletcher. And brown who rent town for visits today with the patriots. Historically the last five or six years they haven't drafted well when it comes of course for wide receivers. For some reason outside the number of players from New England Patriots were watching last five or six years. Look at the players they drafted they never seem to work out when bill in this organization have been able to do was go get veteran guys plug the min they've come in really. Become stopgap players Foreman played well so now they're gonna have to address the core situation they're supports coming on the draft we'll have to see what they do. But they they've got to get this thing fixed again. They have to get this thing fixed again that part I completely agree with. What Herm Edwards talks about fixing this secondary. If he means by adding talent too he's a 100% right. I cannot imagine this team. Making it back to the Super Bowl get an AFC championship game if if they going into next year with a group quarterbacks they have. You can imagine. There are two there's there's too much history of this team giving up big offensive numbers too bad mediocre quarterback as recently as a couple years ago. For me to believe that all of a sudden. The addition of Jim Ball cheered up front and the return of Alan Branch and may be mailed back and that defense may be with Collins and I tower. Mean this team could just find a way to get back. They added eight top notch quarterback and Revis a physical presence and Browner and they use that. We get themselves whole field you point out in the playoffs they weren't lockdown defensive players anymore. Outside of the colts game you're right. What led them to get home field had to get offensive second or that was really tough to move the football locked in key spots they were really good at situationally. Because you can trust those defenders in man defense reais to Browner particular. In the days prior to Revis and Browner. It was that soft soul and it was let teams make placed upon a view GT FB. It's where brown famously said on our show back in the day get deep leap back. That is what this defense was that is what right now on paper they are heading in 2015. In the very early portion of free agency. Where most of the top end talent is off the board and you're now in two B Terence Newman Bradley Fletcher Fletcher taveras cadet. Portion of the program that that this team is GT FB scrambling for stop gaps. Jamal Williams Gaon. Browner signed elsewhere New Orleans. Any of the top flight quarters that you might bottle came Big Dig a pilot act I for a couple of years. And that some sort of I wouldn't say. Copycat it would re used to Browner gave you but a drop off that is not. You know so easy to see. Both guys are wrong with ties have been signed elsewhere. Will that last. Summer and got big money some didn't. So. We'll see what this team ends up doing. But. I tend to agree with Steve today and Herm when they talk about at least right now defensively that's secondary and it's super super early. They're in trouble and they they had there has to be some sort of building process for this group out I won't give them time. A bullet to give album get Belichick into the season. Your team's abuse the trade deadline or the patriots. So maybe that's going to be the way they have to go about it. What to think that ball is gonna emerging year two. And Logan Ryan's going to be consistent and the Kyle Larry it is going to be. Yeah more than just a very good nickel corner. I think you're asking a lot. Asked Cindy cheek while play 89 offensive snaps a year go to command. And be a part of this secondary a competent piece game by game week by week I think you raskin a lot. But I ask you guys you hear you could go Herm Edwards say they have to fix this year Steve Mays Smith say they're in trouble. You feel the same ways the patriots fan.
