[0:02:17] ... earlier today. And they said could you see any way. For the Oakland Raiders. Could beat New England in the AFC championship game regardless of where. The game is whether it's in knowing that girl and ...
[0:03:33] ... you know the ones saying they have such great admiration. Or. Would Bill Belichick Josh we angels and Matt Patricia and basically Belichick forever. Is that with Bill Belichick every game plan is now. There's oaks who was there ever exactly light and so that's why I feel like and again. I know I keep bringing up beyond lowers blood. If because obviously you guys remember this from last year when he was in the game that was really a different team. And so. I just think that I mean I have I have tremendous. Confidence.

Glenn, Lou, and Christian talk to NFL Insider Vic Carucci of the Buffalo News, who broke the story of Rob Gronkowski's back surgery. He told them that Gronk suffered a ruptured disk against the Seahawks, and that he will have surgery in Los Angeles, and might not return until a potential Super Bowl appearance..

[0:00:47] ... to be out eight weeks would basically put it up to the Super Bowl and you wonder whether. He could go back there to eight weeks is the AFC title game up. These two weeks here ...
[0:09:22] ... a back problem could you know what he was a kid in high school that he had any issues there. I think I don't recall having him haven't had any issues whether they're gonna get this ...
[0:11:10] ... I've ever seen. And has and I say that it's as a hall fame voters homes whose studies kind of the all time greats makes a part of my my existence to do that. I have ...
[0:12:19] ... that you really can't detach from knowing that him. As a junior high school kids. Hanging out what might you know with my circle of friends of my daughter was in and of being over the ...






Glenn, Lou, and Christian play audio of Dan Shaugnessy avoiding a question about his support of, let's say, "Embattled" writer Bill Conlin as a Hall of Famer. Also, the guys try to find a true definition for "Hate Speech."

[0:07:44] ... the hall named out of Warren Moon is John railways. On the Dan Marino's. All the quarterbacks now all he's been the Drew Brees is the Tom Brady's Ben Roethlisberger. Have both passing records are so much easier to break now. Just purely because I want to grab the receiver of the ...
[0:21:35] ... surprised at that. Suddenly it doesn't fit all bank raised it. Like Bill Cosby if I'm telling you something's going on and it's all balls. ...




Glenn, Lou, and Christian take Dan Shaughnessy to task for using Curt Schilling's political tweet of a meme as the be-all-end-all of why he won't vote Schil into the Hall of Fame.

[0:00:47] ... your vision. 44 certain. But there were some people roll thought that Curt Schilling should be in all the things they baseball writers and others June did not and it was all I believe. Based on ...
[0:04:19] ... grab a ball grab a bluff. That includes Pete Rose that includes Barry Bonds that in my mind that includes Roger Clemens. I don't picket includes Kurt chilly and I told them that. Now they're getting ...
[0:09:59] ... is wrong way is if you already felt like Dan did. They Curt Schilling belongs in the hole you think he's a hall of fame the hall of fame that is still any words not so ...
[0:14:11] ... Right so your so it's your job hero. Save us us from Curt Schilling so we don't wicket away just like I think people need fate we stop this crap about choosing a site. Choose a ...






Glenn, Lou, and Christian are thrilled that the MLB All-Star game is not a deciding factor in World Series Home Field Advantage. Lou like the "Crazy notion" that team record will decide the Home Field. The Rams attempt to clarify Jeff Fisher's comments about Patriots Running Backs clarifies nothing. And, Julian Edleman is all over TMZ with his new Daughter.

[0:00:41] ... Radio WEEI. We also don't see Rob Gronkowski yet at this point Bill Belichick tell me that's something that they're used to doing they're just gonna have to adjust. All right Jamie thank you. Expelled from ...
[0:01:35] ... the I'm not sure the on the interpretation was at this. Point Bill Belichick tell me that's something that they're used to doing they're just gonna have to adjust now. Again I. I well enjoys playing ...
[0:02:18] ... you God's if you would ask that come if we would ask Bill Belichick right now. Whether he meant that directed towards growing equity now is it nobody knew where you assume we're used to losing ...
[0:14:47] ... had to come out today. And clarified. The conference call yesterday with Jeff Fisher in which Jeff Fisher was referring. To the patriots running back who's pretty damn good name Danny. And because some measure of what it is not ...






LA Rams HC Jeff Fisher talked about the great Patriots running backs... just not the ones that actually play. Also, Lou's Twitter was hacked and sent a virus to his followers, the WEEI re-model is out of control, and the walkable areas are too tiny for Glenn.

[0:10:31] ... that was that was the game changer helmet you bought one very Cory Lekkerkerker it was a one game. I must have been we sort of idea and he must have been saying Denny and those ...
[0:11:52] ... weapon and he was a runner or whatever. Do you believe that Jeff Fisher would have an equal. So I mean this is I don't like there's even even at that job at that this what ...
[0:13:59] ... a free agent contract with the 49ers. However after leading the titans. Jeff Fisher he decided to sign as undrafted free agent. India case that the death 2009. He was asked does tundra it was. A ...
[0:14:40] ... I don't know I feel about that they'll back solidarity. You know Jeff Fisher may be looking and it's a script. What am I worried about the snake we can when this came anyway. No matter ...
