In the last hour of the last show of the week, the guys start to form their opinions of what will happen tomorrow, and take a look at some of the best games of the best sports weekend of the year.
Patriots LB joined the show to discuss the situation regarding Chandler Jones, and what to expect from Saturday's playoff game vs. the Chiefs.

Well there you have it. All the answers you were looking for. Cris Carter says Chandler Jones was smoking weed laced with angel dust. Based on what, exactly? Based on his own uninformed, unsubstantiated, shot-in-the-dark guess.

Welcome to sports journalism in 2016. ESPN can’t be bothered to look into why Mrs. Peyton Manning was getting shipments of performance-enhancers at the same time Mr. Peyton Manning was coming back from four neck surgeries in his late 30s. But there’s nothing preventing Cris Carter from pulling random and irresponsible speculation out of his ass. To review: HGH, no. PCP, yes.

I am more convinced than ever that the report Chris Gasper of The Boston Globe tweeted out the other day is absolutely true. Chandler Jones smoked spice. Period. I base this on several facts. Not the least of which is the audio of the Foxboro cop who said over the radio that Jones was ‘definitely involved with Class D (delta) before this happened.’ He didn’t mention Adderall, pills or any other prescription drug. And he for sure didn’t say squat about PCP.

Second, I’ve done my homework on this. Friday morning I talked to the biggest substance-abuse expert God ever put on this Earth: A mom whose son is addicted to synthetic pot. Everything that she described her kid has gone through is what Jones is accused of doing at the Foxboro police station. The irrationality, the hallucinations, the psychotic behavior. All of it. From a legal substance that her kid would by at the local convenience store like it was a bottle of 5-hour Energy.

It’s far more likely that on a bye week Jones decided to wake and bake with a legal, easily obtained but gawdawful drug that is not banned by the NFL and doesn’t show up on drug tests than he went to a dealer to buy frigging angel dust. In spite of what this TV clown says. This, after all, is the same Cris Carter who told an amphitheater filled with NFL rookies that if you get in trouble you need to have “a fall guy” in your crew. So consider the source.

I’ll add that I don’t want my defensive ends smoking anything, much less a product that’s sold as an incense and carries a warning label that says, “Not fit for human consumption.” But that’s a damn sight different than saying he went all Jake Hoyt on us.

The Steelers have ruled out Antonio Brown for their Divisional matchup vs. the Broncos and the guys discuss how this paves the way for Peyton Manning's most glorious playoff one-and-done.
The guys open up the show talking about yesterday's reports that Rob Gronkowski received an injection in his knee yesterday, and the fact that he missed practice with knee and back injuries.

Kansas City StarNew England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is many things. A four-time Super Bowl champion. A three-time Super Bowl MVP. A two-time NFL MVP. …

And Brady has never forgiven the NFL for its unsuccessful attempt (so far) to suspend him for whatever role he may have played in the Deflategate scandal in last year’€™s AFC Championship Game.

Brady, 38, played like a man possessed as the Patriots raced to a 10-0 start this season, reminiscent of 2007 when New England went 16-0 in regular season.

Even as injuries struck the team, Brady kept raising his game. … Brady completed a franchise-record 402 passes for 4,770 yards — the fourth-most of his career. He led the NFL with 36 touchdowns to 10 different players and threw just seven interceptions.

“This may be his best season ever,” said Hall of Fame quarterback Dan Fouts, who will broadcast Saturday’€™s game for CBS.

What the actual hell? Like this Patriots week hasn’t already been bizarre enough, with the coach coming up with a mysterious black eye, Chandler Jones having a freakout like the teenager in a 1950s anti-marijuana health class film, and conflicting reports about why Rob Gronkowski is missing practices. Now we get this?

The Kansas City papers are writing love letters to Tom Brady? Has the world gone mad? Where’s the anger? Where’s the phony-baloney sanctimony about all his cheating with his conniving coach and his arrogant organization? Where’s the discrediting of all that he’s accomplished and unsubtle digs at his manhood and family life? Instead we get a tribute so glowing I wouldn’t even have written it. And I make a living posting stuff about Brady that would embarrass a girl who writes “Twilight” fan fiction.

I’ve been looking for some quality hatred out of the Kansas City media, but this is the best I can do. I’m ready to kick their door in and come in with both guns blazing, and instead I’m getting welcomed in and served coffee and pie in the living room. And it’s killing me. I waited all year for the Pats to be in the playoffs and so far all I’ve gotten is disappointment, controversy and an opponent playing nice, and I need it to be over. They can’t kick this ball off fast enough.
