Vic Carucci of the Buffalo News joins Keefe and Pete to give an update on the Buffalo Bills in the wake of their firing Rex Ryan. He discusses what the Bills' plans are going forward. He also touches on what he thinks the off season will hold for the Patriots in terms of a potential Jimmy G trade.

Rich Keefe and Pete Sheppard open the show discussing the Celtics just hours before their big match up with LeBron and the Cavaliers. The guys debate just what exactly would make this a successful season for the Celtics, and talk about their future for the next few years.

Since everyone has some sort of year-end list, we figured we should probably get in on that. These are the WEEI columns, blog posts and audio on demand clips all of you clicked on the most in 2016. Enjoy.

Top 10 columns

10. Kirk Minihane – Analyze this: Phil Simms worst announcer ever

Remember when Kirk used to write columns? He was quite good at it, as evidenced by this evisceration of a truly terrible announcer.

9. John Tomase – First it was Don Orsillo — will fan favorite Jerry Remy be next to take fall at NESN?

Remy is still standing for now. Let’s see what happens in 2017.

8. DJ Bean – The horrifying (and graphic) story of Jake DeBrusk’s injury

Apparently people really like horrifying (and graphic) stories about testicle injuries. Weirdos.

7. Christopher Price – Industrial justice: Could Deflategate ban ultimately lead to Patriots regaining first-round pick?

Deflategate remained a popular topic in Year 2 of its ridiculous existence. Here Chris explores whether Jimmy Garoppolo played well enough in fill-in duty to bring back a first-round pick in a potential trade.

6. Christopher Price – NFL’s lax cybersecurity shows Tom Brady did right thing not turning over cell phone

I had forgotten about the NFL’s Twitter account getting hacked and announcing that Roger Goodell had died. Classic.

5. Kirk Minihane – Jessica Moran, John Farrell and 3 burning questions

Prediction: Kirk will see this post, be inspired by how well his columns have done and start writing for us again. … Haha, yeah right.

4. Christopher Price – In response to latest PSI rumor, Patriots right to question NFL’s defensive double standard

This is from just a couple weeks ago, after the NFL somehow managed to bring an end to Deflategate II in about 45 minutes.

3. Rob Bradford – Inside story of David Ortiz’s injury: ‘He was essentially playing on stumps’

Everything you’d ever want to know about Big Papi’s feet.

2. John Tomase – Jamie Collins deal latest reminder it’s pointless to question Bill Belichick

As someone who questioned the Collins trade at the time… yep.

1. Kirk Minihane – Enough is enough, Chris Mortensen has to go

Please note that this was published before we all found out about Mort’s cancer. Obviously everyone is glad he’s doing better now, but he’s still a sore subject for Patriots fans.

Top 10 blog posts

10. It Is What It Is – NY Daily News reveals court documents alleging Peyton Manning ‘smear campaign’ in sex assault case

Peyton went out with a Super Bowl, but also with this story and a PED investigation.

9. It Is What It Is – Reggie Wayne: Tom Brady can’t win MVP ‘because he was caught cheating this year’

Reggie’s still bitter because he didn’t get to have fun during his brief time with the Patriots.

8. Full Count – Clay Buchholz’ run with Red Sox comes to end with trade to Phillies

I was mildly surprised to find that the Buchholz trade beat out the Chris Sale trade.

7. It Is What It Is – Tom Brady explains why he isn’t one of greatest quarterbacks to ever play

Brady can’t really believe that, right?

6. It Is What It Is – Wes Welker surprises Patriots fans at Gillette Stadium tailgate with Tom Brady mask

Funny, but also kind of creepy.

5. Thornography – Patriots’ scouting report on Johnny Manziel was eerily accurate

“Doesn’t study the game, said to know about 60% of the offense in ’12, never watches film” isn’t quite the Patriots’ type.

4. It Is What It Is – Bart Scott: Rob Gronkowski is on his way out of New England

It’s the Patriots, so you really can’t count out anything, but Bart might be reaching a bit on this one.

3. It Is What It Is – Former Patriots executive Mike Lombardi: Jamie Collins didn’t follow team strategy in New England at times

These were the comments that served as the prelude to a great, testy segment on Kirk & Callahan. That in turn helped pave the way for the end of the Lombardi/K&C relationship, but I’d say it was all worth it.

2. Thornography – N.Y. Post calls for NFL to change touchback rule to stop Bill Belichick

Ah yes, the John Harbaugh strategy. If you can’t beat them, try to get the rules changed.

1. Thornography – Patriots fan takes best Roger Goodell photo ever

Not all heroes wear capes.

Top 10 audio clips

10. Enough About Me, Episode 16: Pete Sheppard

This was the first time Pete appeared on anything WEEI since his infamous walkoff rant against station management.

9. OMF – The return of the Whiner Line

Another big return to the station. What’s old is new again.

8. Jackie MacMullan on D&H: Jessica Moran-John Farrell relationship was unprofessional on both sides

Jackie’s was probably the best take I heard on the whole Moran-Farrell saga.

7. K&C – ‘Unhinged’ Curt Schilling attacks John Tomase (warning: strong language)

Fireworks! And other F-words! This came after Donald Trump’s creepy comments about a 10-year-old girl and Schilling’s subsequent weird defense of those comments.

6. Enough About Me, Episode 18: Artie Lange

If Kirk believed in heaven, it would probably be something like this podcast. Or maybe the next clip.

5. K&C – Glenn Ordway vs. David Portnoy bloodbath

An old feud finally got the on-air, face-to-face airing of grievances that we’d all been waiting for.

4. Enough About Me, Episode 1: David Portnoy

Two Portnoy entries? Guess that’s why they call him Pageviews.

3. K&C – Tom Brady responds to Reggie Wayne’s cheating allegations

The most popular Brady interview this year came during the Patriots’ bye week. Thanks, Reggie.

2. OMF – Angry Lou’s unedited goodbye poem to the 2016 Red Sox (NSFW language)

Lou had a lot of anger this season, and this was his finest hour.

1. D&C – Gary Tanguay walks out

The most amazing part of this was how many listeners came to Tanguay’s defense… at least for a little while.

Fare thee well, old friend. (WEEI)
