Just two years after John Henry said he was opposed to signing pitchers to high price deals, it looks like the Red Sox might be front runners for David Price. Glenn, Lou and Christian discuss whether Dombrowski is really trying to spend the money or if he's using the media reports as strategy.
After Sunday night's loss, guys like Trent Dilfer, Steve Young and Dan Fouts are putting teams like the Broncos and Bengals ahead of the Patriots as AFC favorites. Also, Glenn, Lou and Christian have some fun with Dan Fouts picking the Redskins to win the NFC.

According to Navy Sports the Navy football team is rolling out a special uniform for the Army-Navy Game on December 12th. It will not only feature all the design, color and fonts used on Navy vessels, the “Damn the torpedos!” motto and the Marine Corps logo, they’ll have different ships on the helmets, assigned according to position:

Helmet Details and Position Assignment:
— Linebacker: Cruiser– Provides anti-air defense and packs the biggest punch of Naval surface ships representative of the linebackers on the Navy football team.
Defensive Back: Destroyer– Known for significant fire power, speed, and anti-missile defense as are Navy’s defensive backs.
Wide Receiver: Submarine– Predominantly utilized as blockers, wide receivers play a key role in driving the Navy rush attack, taking on a stealth-like persona as they blend into the rhythm of the offense but bring significant fire power when called upon, just like a Naval submarine.
Lineman: Amphibious Assault Ships– Just as a lineman’s job is the create a hole for a running back or linebacker, these ships are utilized to establish the “beach head” that enables the invading force to gain access and ultimately accomplish their objective.
— Quarterback: Aircraft Carrier– The QB of the Naval Fleet, the aircraft carrier is the ultimate decision maker; the “quick strike” weapon of the Naval fleet.
Running Back: Littoral Combat Ship– Like running backs, these fast and nimble ships can navigate through both crowded shallow and deep waters.
Kicker/Special Teams: Minesweeper– Much like the specific task of the Navy special teams, this small ship has a unique mission of identifying and eliminating mines.

Like most football fans above the age of say, 25, as a general rule I’m not a fan of specialty uniforms. I see them as a cynical marketing ploy to vacuum money out of the pockets of easily duped suckers, mostly under the age of 25. Call me an old bastard, but being a great program or a pro team with a proud history means you’ve established a tradition. And given your uniform a cache’ that lesser teams can only dream of. That’s why Notre Dame, the St. Louis Cardinals, the Cowboys, Yankees, Michigan, the Canadiens and so on don’t need to lower themselves to go after gimmicky money grabs like alternate unis.

But for Navy, I’m making an exception. Because these are certifiably badass. I’m still all about tradition and honoring your past. And when that past consists of the Battle of Flamborough Head (1779), The Monitor vs. The Merrimack (1862), Manila Bay (1898), the North Atlantic (1941-45), Midway (1942), Roger Staubach, Steve Belichick, killing Somali pirates, taking out bin Laden and Machinist’s Mate John “Bud” Thornton aboard the U.S.S. Solomons? Then you’ve got cache’ no one else can match. Navy can do whatever the hell they want because they are tradition. Even to the worst traditionalists among us.

Rarely does a day go by that I don’t find some new and different way to NOT care about the Cleveland Browns or what happens to them. But when I’m still seething about the way the officials in Denver pulled off a screw job of the Patriots, it brings me some degree of pleasure to know that the city that despises Bill Belichick, blamed him for the Browns moving out of Cleveland and burned him in effigy lost in possibly the worst fashion in NFL history Monday night. Not only because they gave up a kick-six, but also because Baltimore was clearly offside. I’m no fan of the Browns or NFL officials. And lord knows I can’t stand the Ravens. But I am a huge fan of karma. Especially when it happens to a fan base that should forever be on The Hooded Ones enemies list.

Though to be perfectly honest with you (because I want our relationship to be built on trust), this play and that blown call gives me an excuse to post this video of a Browns fan singing Christmas carols about how much their lives suck. Like I said, the end of the Monday Night game gave me pleasure, this brings me tidings of comfort and joy. Dropping to 10-1 sucks, but at least we’re not this guy.

At least Clevelanders can take comfort in knowing that a year ago, Brett Favre said their backup QB Austin Davis is the next Tom Brady. So they got that going for them. Which is nice.

After expecting the worst with Rob Gronkowski and Dont'a Hightower, it looks like both of those players will only miss a few weeks for the Patriots. Glenn, Lou and Christian discuss how lucky the Patriots got with this news, and also recap the Ravens/Browns Monday night Football game from last night.
Former Patriots safety Rodney Harrison called into Ordway, Merloni and Fauria to talk about the Patriots Sunday night loss to the Broncos and doesn't think you ever need to question Gronk's heart or toughness when it comes to getting him back on the field.

As my man Ryan Hannable reported in the wee hours Monday, former Broncos tight end, former TV football analyst and full time Patriots hater Shannon Sharpe took to social media to spit on the Patriots grave following the bag job heartbreaking loss in Denver. Well, fortunately for us, Pats fans responded as only Pats fans can. As I’ve said before, there is no other fan base as Internet savvy, clever and fired up than the football fans of New England. And whenever someone makes the mistake of trolling them, the monkeys come flying out of the witch’s castle to swoop down, pull the stuffing out of them and throw their body parts all over the forest.

Well done, Patriots Nation. There is no time off from Defending that Wall.
