WEEI.com's Rob Bradford joined the show to talk about Jon Lester signing with the Chicago Cubs. Rob is adamant that the Sox KNEW the asking price and stayed firm at 135 million, which wasn't going to get it done.

Lester is a Cub and Red Sox have no pitchers deserving of the top 2 rotation spots. A lot people are doubting whether or not the team wanted to keep him. Some blame Lester for his high asking price.

Julian Edelman spoke about the win in San Diego. He was asked about the 6 game stretch and admitted that while it was a tough stretch, he thinks ALL the games are tough. He spoke about how well Miami DB Brent Grimes is playing and reminded the listeners that the Dolphins won in Week 1, and will likely come to Foxboro with a good deal of confidence. And in true Patriots form, when asked about his long TD catch in the 4th quarter, he was quick to heap the praise on LeGarrette Blount and O-Line for selling the play-action which set up the whole play.

Former Patriot safety and current NBC Sports analyst Rodney Harrison joined the show to voice his displeasure with the penalty on Brandon Browner when he was flagged for a "helmet to helmet" hit. He doesn't like the rule, or the fact that the referees always err on the side of the offensive player. He also re-iterates that CB Darrelle Revis is "flat-out, the best" now that he's mentally and physically recovered from his ACL injury.

Cleveland Browns head coach Mike Pettine suggested that QB Johnny Manziel does himself no favors by attending Cavaliers games during the week. RG III remains distant from his teammates and punts to himself like a sad, only child. And Christian's nephew, Joseph Fauria, of the Detroit Lions, tweets about Russell Wilson being involved with his girlfriend.... and then deletes and apologizes.

Reports on Jon Lester say that he's narrowed his search down to 4 teams and others say that it's only 4 teams, with the Red Sox NOT being one of them. Ben Cherington and John Farrell have been talking to the media and seem optimistic that they can re-sign the FA lefty.
