I'm Kristian garic alongside saint colorless an all time leading rusher Deuce McAllister here at Maine as he started four AFC and NFC title game. Sunday 305 kick off between the Packers and the Atlanta Falcons followed by Pittsburgh Steelers and renewing patriot a grudge match induce. Right away we got to bit of controversy and some law surrounding the AFC title game. When you consider. They're the Steelers were about Boston area hotel and summed up that decides he wants to pull the fire alarm at 340. 1340 in the loyally hourlong gauge how about that million. It's always something in actually. The pages I can't say that they can be blamed directly for this book will blame them indirectly coming so you've got spot gave you've got inflate gave. Just a lot going old you're on there under that regime. I think it shows how passionate. Obviously they are about the football in in it in Boston but I mean at the same time. Where in the world of security you know all right normal normally. Whether it's visiting team in the playoffs indoor red with season in Mosul tilt a lot now. And to have someone do that obviously they knew that this bill o's were staying there but. I can't say Mike Tomlin is very happy. But at least they do play a late game so you know the the of the hour hour and a half of inconvenience. They can you know make that back up ball alternate schedule just a tad bit. Well let's fan this patriots finished that pulled the alarm was not a guest at the hotel so he was subsequently arrested. Offered few few charges that I wanna say that that fire alarm you might end up being a felony. Yeah that's a film and that's that's a hefty fine as well also and maybe is it in May sounded in be in good fun but I mean. That's one knicks don't wanna do right there and disease cannot only cause yourself some money but. He goes below Tom. Maybe a couple hours my heart ailment bond ball are. AF CFC title game patriots in Steelers have a grudge match in patriots figure by six over Pittsburgh and Allen in the NFC title game the Packers are four and a half point underdogs. It's Matt Ryan Atlanta Falcons also before we get to breaking now some of these games now. Some moves and the colts organization right Greeks in the general manager was fired yesterday by Jim Irsay. This was you and I were talking about this last week the idea or the notion that the colts flirted with the possibility of trying to get Jon Gruden to be their coach and pay many music general manager. You just saw this coming and I don't know this either. They actually hired a psychiatrist. To improve the relations between the it was only marriage counseling between rank rigs in its output Ghana today that that's the Great Lakes that that the organization went through. To improve this icy relationship and take root in Gian. Well and you talk about Brian Griese he's gotten access to lace you into a I mean so it's not like is there is. Saying hey look well I don't wanna pay the gap because it is given an extension last year I mean. We all know this is paying ski to lose if you want to know this is basically fuels are dedicated and you know I'll really be the GM CC the success of the news and you see the success of John Elway. On how they've been able to build teams. You know even they even McKinsey. You know. All of these got a former fall for players mean when you think about the war quarterbacks that have been able to build scene you know obviously Elway comes to mind and soul. The patent to be Avis stepping in the organization that he played for obviously is some. Some some pretty good feelings you know. I think that the rocket part when the release of the release of him I think that's a pretty much done but this is his ski if he won't. And so to be able to go in and work which I don't think would be an issue. But. They have to have at least the a 18 AB. Eight some playing on if he does not take it I mean because. You've waited awhile. Leo and used deal probably. Particular players aren't sure what direction you're gonna go explores an organization because. Lately gained human chains like the world's late in the game with your hand and saying hey you know those guys didn't even have a true exit meeting. A local players met would. Ryan Griggs you mean but other than that they didn't have a troop exit meeting. From that organization so it's been it's been very very strange to saintly. Yet but Ghana is apparently safe according to a colts owner Jim Irsay I think that would grant salt levees are five general managers get a coach and ultimately. That's the I'd I would that you know manager policy talk operating in another general managers at some point he's gonna wanna is don't wanna have is guys there is a guy I don't wanna file a one. You're at least he would be if you don't win yet. That that's what's gonna happen I mean who would Andrew look as your quarterback and some of the money that they've split offensively and I'm hoping that they. Think they're offered to Limon to weigh in that the defense will still need some help so. Can't say that they've gotten better over the last three to four years so. You know it'll be instant fail in the playoffs here that's what's gonna act. The states at this interview Tim Thomas who look for their vacant Beilein coaching position and deuce pretty keen on that element. Yeah you know whether it had happened or you know whether it was a sleet that it was gonna happen and note supposed to happen. Or is scheduled to happen next week it's Senior Bowl like like we said you know that's when you gonna see a lot of movement as far as the staff was concerned just because. That's when they've made moved in and and you know a lot of the coaches go over there. That's when you know you wrote nobles and you have the option talked to different guys and you know to see it clear it for your organization so I wouldn't be surprised to see some movement on those hires. Within the next week or so. Pullen drove in a 50426018. Semi tech's 87 eights of meat Packers and falcons who your prediction also patriots and Steelers here on W dwelling investment dot com live from Manning's an awful. Do aggression in out out here man thinks it is crucially it out lots of you get they've got like forty flat screen TVs here right one on one of is it is movie about B Ruth it's called Ruth I've seen it several times but. Wouldn't it this would collect the weapons lived there that that time it and see. That guy at least play games play one game baseball player is news outlets and when you lose. Yet look at on TV and then you read some of the stories and to some of the clips of me news obviously it's legendary stuff. What he was able to do would just attack. Alan alone you'll. EG think about defeat at the right quote unquote type of training you know. Wow wouldn't be enough his body daily and nightly. Just think of how good he would've been in you know just as a player and it's amazing just think of the athletes that have come through and you know some of the things that we have been you know that makes us better. Now and then think about you know manic happy he didn't even have yielded little the proper equipment. To be able to go out there and doing an something they were doing so estimates. It hasn't nutrition guides the weight program. While that occurred on a particular use. I mean you know to have somebody like I am on a plan Ottawa state with that the ad council on money. None of that stuff. And people who historically with the electric is read about it but but he's glad to let you read about how legendary woods off the field also. Feel it's it's pre treatment this thing about the outlook pop time if I could go back. You know they like to athletes and yet they hate to athlete you go back in time to watch. He would be certainly certainly wanna. Idea I mean you would wanna see debate of who you know and the one is. Somewhat in that same errors probably will China and India whose behalf he dominated how he changed. The game you know if I had to how to think about my second guy true but I mean will wilt was one that they look at this this get this guy changed. You know leave it literally changed the game changed rules. Of how it was played and how it's supposed to be played so you know and and to me he was back to how to how you measure up. You know guess today's athletes but having Hussein. Opportunity and training our athletes have today another one I'd like Alexi pistol Pete. Look let him. He would you like I guess some some some of our older listeners basically they are already I mean and just some of the stories and some of the things that you saw. Him do with the basketball and you know whether whether he was. John Stockton nor Allen Iverson you know a lot of the moves. Bomb they got from him you know he he he was to limit those at that time. You know you talk about Oscar Robertson or are two ball well all moves that he was stolen and we look at it today didn't sit well. You know they've been renamed it or base week. That emotional mood but you know some of the guys oh older athletes say they were doing net 203040 years ago. Speaking of basketball the rough that a bad rouge for Johnny Jones and in the Ellis tigers just one winning conference play than. Going back to the pelicans on Friday night was the booklet that's given up 143 points but we'll start with the help me we'll start with that. The tigers haven't Johnny Jones case that by this and they got one win that conference we have lost that sits in a room. I don't know if you can survive room and being on the scene on the support the pressure obviously. You know and I know John Meehan he he you feel formula and I know Randy. Probably a little bit better and Livingston and you know I know this is his first year on that staff but man it's it's been really really awful. At least the effort has been there but you know it may be the president is gonna keep before an effort you know they expect you win. Particularly after some of the things that came out. Well earlier this year or like late last year with Vince Evans. You know originated in the and and and and kind of taken apart and sat there and coalition somewhat. But not regional tournament. You know to the full capability and obviously this year. Doesn't look promising as far as I'm reaching the turn. They have all the resources for us to be at least. Let's just say Edwards made an above average squad. We know football skiing but at the same time you've got to be. And it alienate time. Yeah it will ultimately determine every couple years we have as well as let's say at least three years at every three years but you know you've you're that you copper you've got to be plopped. You know maybe a little bit better you would expect it last year the they would have been better. Pop country you know and so. I'm home I'm I don't know my parents about. The doors pelicans laid an egg on a Friday night against the Brooklyn nets hit just eight wins coming in to that ball game on Friday 143114. Got blown up making 143. Points in the smoothies in an appellate now. Seventeen and 27 is another. I mean with when they lost a seven sixers. About a month or so what and half ago. And then people question whether out of gentry would survive and whether delta would survive etc. but this one this latest one. Really I think this might be worst the worst loss the two between them in the seventh six. The problem was that the Mets world eleven game losing streak yeah well I mean and so. And in an album late into. Mean he let it happen I mean the effort was not there to give up 143. Points in this when he overtime you know this is ready regulation and it would like that they were. Specifically. On fire from three you know that means Brooklyn in men and actually you get beat them. Up there you know you have beat him up there and I took you coming back down and in in the fall quarter to about thirteen but. You know a it is it was just off I mean you look at the schedule that they have the upcoming schedule you've got LeBron tomorrow and in a peek at some point you've GAAP San Antonio next week and get a phone service of the bone in his words a mean so you look at their skid tonight you've got a final winner to. Obama is that a lot of you can't give the easy ones away you know particularly when you're trying to get out of a hole to be able to get to that 8% spot and so. You talk about making it tough on yourself you're definitely in the top. So so effort wasn't there the news that what's that's all that's a reflection on the coach Wright and at some point you gotta go look at that well coach and player I mean because of vomit on the coach minimum I'm not hopefully you know I'm I'm I'm an institute. If you're Matt Gogel out there and give at least four after you can't necessarily look at the name monitors of that that's obviously. What happened in the and you know by the time you try to come back and get into it it's snowball you know he can't get back in games though. The focus wasn't there to do to go out and be prepared and go play. So I mean it's gonna fall Alvin ultimately but he knows this articles players as well. The pelicans faulted the that's 114 wore a one point 3114 excuse me get the cats thunders birds in the next three days. All of which are in this movie keen sense that that's positive but LeBron James bodily Russell Westbrook Westbrook coming down and of course since experts. They used words that all 7 o'clock tip offs next week for. The new world development looking ahead to the NFC and AC title game today right here on W wealth real fight to gulf between the Packers. And the Atlanta Falcons in the Packers. Stand in the way of a company a nightmare scenario for saints fans Jordy Nelson. Who missed the divisional round playoff game after suffering a a rib injuries in the while car around he's expected to play today that's huge for the Packers office headed got three starters. There have been now obviously Jordan was one of them and I think. You young receiver between Tibet bishop an op osment. I think. I think all three will play. You know the question is can you give up to 3000 give you everything you you know that that's what might. Is asking the moon because you literally will get one week off you know Tuesday which would mean to all and so. When we were in this opportunity and I was actually playing. It was to get Chicago you know we we had to travel so it is it's similar to what Green Bay. Is going through you know it's doing whatever you have to do to get yourself ready and prepared and you know make it your the part of it is. Giving an appeal you know making sure that I have seen all of the different looks not seen the different a lot of minutes you know we can make the difference calls it chicks and I didn't wanna say that she did not only myself but exceeded my teammates because I didn't put the proper amount of Tom Meehan make pitches I was prepared to go play that game what it was up against Chicago you know divisional. Game Boone. 06. One well in a suggestion game you know we were up against them. Well that that was our Mims is that the you know we we Regis which can be to know whether. They came sore we went up there but that was the one that you know. Your game away from the suitable so don't let you be that individual that had prepared. Enough in the film room. And you do wanna teach yourself into players and that's gonna work. Both of these teams have went through to get to this point. The Packers they've by four and half kind of if you think about the extreme dynamic that's going on in Atlanta with closing out the Georgia don't make it couldn't go any better for the way Arthur Blank would want that. That's the bit to go out style hosting NFC title game in the last. The last game last NFL game in that building in an opening. The new stadium next year mates is exactly the way off of like one because he wanted to go into that new stadium with a hot team with a wood with a very relevant team he's got that. PSA is maybe they got to be a Visalia stadium out of me know what way what better way from a marketing standpoint and they say hey look look which are falcons needed. You you better coming get two tickets you know because it's hot item with the hot ticket this team either. Went to reasonable rough loss record game before so. Hello we we have the opportunity to play the last regular season game in there and now you know they get to holes. The NFC championship game just because obviously of the cowboys' loss. Could write a better script for Deuce McAllister saints colorless pershing Derrick here right now in the NFC and AFC title game taking your phone calls well at 504. 260187. The future predictions can also text states that it's having on Twitter. Acting McAllister 26 on that Virginia are ran out of Manning's here on W two LA announcement aka Herm Edwards right now that. Crazy scene that window pane look in suit. Think those term is like peak it. This trip it's pretty bold I got to give her her credit for for rocket penalty I think it's him. Second to the left and had a look that looks like amendment only give out. So outs marking him I saw he had been the sport sooner. Duties ahead and losing those duties today so sent out to her. Annual incidence gas. Yeah Mark Ingram face and face to face what Hannah Storm when he has been the news very good by the way if you missed it. I know David Potter master control room about saying hey take it out I usually went and looked at it it was a fantastic interview given great response to. When he's asked about out exceeded my handle you know a title game loss in. I had shut out them to market for for an old self quite well. On on face to face and then as the audience here I don't know what his answer was Google give more for pops our recruits mean that's that's what is gonna go to. Ian accuses phony Althea that it is talking about it. People were pretty you know clips of one of us now this is the demise of Nick Saban and Alabama like this is the slow erosion yeah I usually in opposite ways like. Hit it lost one game this is not going to be the it's that this hasn't spelled doom for Alabama programming it's not going anywhere until Nick Saban says that he wants to go anywhere in other words he'll get that mental up when he's ready to. Yeah I mean when they're losing ground here when you look at who hurt the roster of players that they have. You know not only guys there or waiting or yell you know as far as. Freshman sophomore is going to be really really tough amend think their quarterback. Was a freshman as well you know being the PS improve owners is its role in football I mean I don't know how do. He had looked at their two deep for next year. But I I can assume that that defense will be gave they do it in mixers all mean for them that's where all started in. In on the the running backs all those guys coming back I think they only lost three. Early early entry as far as soon as where were concerned so. I don't think it's the miles of their album program. So much attention devoted to Antonio Brown his those keen FaceBook like. Post of Mike problem last week after the win over the Kansas City TC. Then drew sharp criticism from from the media from even teammates and also as take coach thing is the way. This is a selfish move and also seeing Nate is the way great players find themselves on another team but it was. Revealed earlier this weekend that that's that sixth. Figure endorsement deal with FaceBook so that explains it. And that basically is a 100000 a better. You know and so Wear them more coats off we don't know if it's a 500000 that we don't look at 75250. Whatever it may be. You know. He can afford to find that the Steelers and the NFL gave him to say the least as we Facebook's pay for it that's exactly what I love about say but the thing that he hurt was to trust. I'm not only the hit coats with teammates as well I mean because like we've said that locker room as a. It's sanctuary for a lot of Gaza and some of the things that happen in there. I know would not happen outside of a lock them you know and so. The trust that you build up. You wouldn't want it to come out you know just because they look I spend so much time with this guy you know not only on the field but in that locker room. You you clamping and giving you crime together unity happy together and so some of those means. You'll do outside of that 53 little people to hear or know about so. He broke that trust the if he can go 450. In about two touchdowns I think that god would definitely forgiven even though probably some of them have already done so. It's like you know failed them you know if you'll people in your home seeing some of the things that Michael on all be might pianist but it's still very personal. To you and your family safe thing and NFL locker room and yet Antonio Brown. Certainly caught some criticism caused sharp words from from a state coach put given with a steel is that it deal with this week preparing for. The doing the patriots who are making their sixth straight conference title appearance and also their eleventh under Bill Belichick conferees. That incident coupled with. The blue book the Romo run around their locker room they. Dave less preparation let's face it physically deadly game because the weather. And in the alarm stuff last night. I mean is that to the distractions the weather one and one week it might come. I I you know what I would be interest it is obscene the overall youth of that team you know defensively I think you know James Harrison. We'll have them focus you know Harrison we'll have them focus to go out and do what they have to do you know and you would think Ben Roethlisberger. Would have his crew. Group on the offensive side. Having that same focus so if it was a fairly young teen particularly in data and have. Those two leaders policy man that's a lot you know for any team but at the same time I think that they understand and know. Ericsson will get another shot. And I don't think that he'll be back. On with that's why to be even play in the same role. That he and so you know a lot of those guys they know that hey look this maybe my last opportunity a bit take advantage of. What about. Overall Ben Roethlisberger play in the playoffs hasn't been he has a bit sharpened when he's might be away sort some sort of leg injury that we don't know much about it. That maybe that's affected his accuracy. It's been Jose and I mean no adjustment act you know ease there but he hadn't been. Bomb. You know vintage pan as as as we've seen in the past and you know at one point yet the bootable and found out well it's not really. The ankle it's really in need and you know we don't know how bad it's bothering him X there you know we do know. That they have Leno lady unveiled a lot you know. He has the most total yards in the playoffs this year. As far as rushing yards is concerned he asked deal at least 11 more game possibly two more games to play so. We know where they've leaned on and they may continue to try to do so blip. I'm instant matchup and seeing exactly you know is it going to be to get scene is it going to be a one guessing. A scheme from military you know is it gonna play. Bear front you know where he covers up to sinner and guards. And may be in check out to something also. That matchup should be very very interest. Mark on a cell phone line one Euro on W him to a more tournament. Not to much guys I yelled at and more to do you do. Good I just wanted to say it is off topic a little bit but I. You know a lot of missed Hokies this year and I just wanted to give props to deuce because he's brought. A different aspects to you know not only when he's with Jim both wings were talking with you guys then. I just wanted to give these rocks because I think he's done a great job this year and these are welcome addition to lift up Tokyo. Appreciate their mark on the edges let me note address announcer and it took over two yard appreciate that as a humble guys just make you humble yeah look. It so that you wanted two input from the from the blisters on his know what more can you do us as a color analyst to bring them inside some of those nights and bring him inside the gaming and looking. I think it. That caller right on. Listen to listen you call a game it's it's a totally different perspective and I think we've had quite some time does it he truly it's almost like you watch in this game. With the coach slick and that's literally breaking down every every play every aspect of a little nuances that maybe others wouldn't would notice. Well and the thing for me. I wish we had the Mahatma clicker yes well illustrator EMI tell straighter to be able to go into say look you know. Based off of Islam and this is what I think you know because obviously when you get it or trips formation or or or a three wide and it's a really tight formation. Based on down and distance you know some some some teams get away tendencies and not just the saints you know we can be looking at the falcons you until. Win a road route it's coming or you can still win. Just hit it in May be a toss and it's until two bills tendencies and you know I had some really really good guys that helped me. Develop whether it was studying some of the feel more just you know recognizing some formations tendencies and you know down and distance means things of that nature so. For me I wanna say look how can I help our fans to be able to pick up a little little bit better so you know we're we're knowledgeable and Leo we we we can see when certain things are happening and door. You know just to be able to enjoy the game a little bit better you truly an x.s and go to Tokyo to you know like the game. Like how many like you if you really get off on the on the on the x.s and o.s part of it is Ito well how much you like to watch film that's that are it's who talked to. Who really set site damage that you had a breakdown opponent accounts that I mean it was coordinators and obviously some of the players teammates. You know you look at it on the carpet on a suffered knee injuries as far as and he you know you go back to his in state days and he is a tremendous tremendous bad. But then he gets drafty you know obviously in Cincinnati Terry is an ACL and you know he's never really sane. You look at a player like he had been. You know you look at. Rule Lamar that I head. Laura Miller yeah Williams and and in Washington in me he would win over 12100 yards and you know we were together local for years you know from from David Atkinson. One of my best running back coaches and he's gonna talk about because now forgiveness name in Dallas and none though lobe is rich decisive that's that's he is assistant. Hit coach and his special teams. Coordinator you know and he was with me in college and I consider him like a flop you know because he challenged me not only in practice but. He challenged me obviously to be able to go out and in the games and it was funny. Just listen to some of the previews last week of that Chris guy. On one thing that that likes to do before the game is go out and get a well I hurt. Exactly what the reporter reported. One of the things that that likes to do before the game is the go out and Getty gets wit make sure he has made its way. Going before the game and income meaning get ready. Well I had to do the same thing without a 1000 college under coach the Sox via go out awards negated its way to in you know go through. Makes kids his ex pilots get some kickoffs Indian come in and actually go out for the actual game so. You eat you. You visualize you know plays to those last two weeks and and then it's just going and playing it's all the reactions I had some just some tremendous teachers and probably my first suit three years of policy first two years. Playing here to do it Brooks and and and getting to know him. And you know listen better study played them well listen in the hill call out our plate. But you know and he's probably about 7580%. Right. It may not been exactly but he was he he could tell you hey. The coming here to competitors it's right here it's sort of right you know or you know it's a passes of Paxson. I'm thinking you know in my given way to be because this phantom and a mustang or the whole you know what in my door and roll because he's call out to play golf you know and the it was all films that you know once we talk a little bit it was all film study in the end you know about the gaga had a tremendous amount of respect and got to play within. Was done to build and you know doing practice. We would talk the same way. You know bouncing and I look what they don't know what is Frank Gore Dolan offensively or what is McCord doing. You know low how and I Hilton you know just those guys will be able to say. Well this is what they like to do and you know what what is the ramp it wears you lineup and so. It's if it's the mind game from there and you know you just get a tremendous amount of space for guys to do with that type what it. Fascinating stuff through the celts are six color analyst Chris Garrett and I hear that Manning's phone lines are open final four to 60187. X 870 recently. This is Debbie get well home of the NFC and AFC divisional she's in Etsy. It's championship game a year later sent out of the great environment here at meanings over forty flat screen TV's got that beat theater seating area right here for the big screens he watched the NFC and AFC title game hopefully the Packers beat up on those dirty birds without it in the title game. This at the United States to answer reports that Jimmy in it would. You're on W the vote him. Yeah. Yeah. People for the dirty birds get a couple. Does that now. As the game and it's. I didn't think the big ego. Gain. Related who will look here's a diligently I can't root for the Palestinians itself can't do it pull for the Packers. And again I don't think is the safety might be the only one giving. You know he'll long ride on that game. I bet that that may be why. No way I got a lot of love for Jimmy under the tag up there Q would but not today apple for the falcons has not happened I'd certainly come back here Deuce McAllister crushing Derrick on it's just sports a special addition here at W well enough men daka.
