He'll backlog and our two it's just sports special edition Deuce McAllister Kristian garic pain out here Manny to til noon then a couple Steelers fans in the house is well. The Steelers. Hey look I think most states physical and for the Steelers well today. They don't I don't think you can only those patriots either. I mean we have a great worker relations with the mine had opportunities this. Pass a pre season comes into play him in the game but then to be at work with a minute joint practices something that. Coach Payton coach militants have done in the past in. You know. I think it's its success that they've had you know wanting to do wanna do is not a model. You organizational your program after indeed be because look at the success that they've you know we've we've talked about eleven. Eleven straight. What six straight conference on eleven overall yeah 1111 overall six state straight conference title games and I think it's what thirteen out of fifteen. AFC east championship so I mean it's it's a bond numbers when you get the look and and and just what they've been able to do. Bill Belichick and Tom Brady have been for awhile and of course. Ben Roethlisberger had his moments against the patriots well. So the Steelers the seat to get that done at the late in this afternoon our first game at 305 Packers and falcons a text message here. And he 787 aces saints fan here I grew Jimmy can't with the falcons are the underdogs like the saints were in 2009 now no fights if I would think thousands are underdog in particular. Vegas has them as they as a favorite today for Knapp points over the Packers so. They're not the underdog if you look around the league. The fourteen remaining there's a lot of the I can promise you the Steelers and patriots. They don't look at Atlanta has to pop possibly be an underdog thing should meet them in the super. Yeah now what the explosive offense that they have you have to consider them you know the favorite. In this situation I mean because you go and you look at match ups Ramallah just look at it from me. Quarterback situation. Obviously out probably. Give it to Matt Ryan you know he's probably going to be the MVP this year. He I would take the that the that the past history. Of Ian Rodgers you know and I may call that split or just apostle you know as far as quarterback. Favoring you know one thing that you can say. Is there rock says love on the big stage in Matt Ryan has yet to do that. You know as far as win on the big stage of mean would then you look at the running back situation you'd have to like Atlanta. As far as the running backs are concerned you look at the way our receivers. You probably have to go Julio Jones and and that crew. You offered to line wise. Probably say it's even to a split. The one thing that I would do that probably give via tie in is it over to Green Day I mean but you know it offensively. That favors Atlanta you know as far as things they've done and that's just because of in Rockies history being able to win a Super Bowl being able to win big games. Matt Ryan have an outstanding year this year but he had really won anything. As far as the playoffs are concerned obviously the Super Bowl is concerned. You know you have to that it monster and Freeman and Coleman in Atlanta as far as running back I Montgomery his former. Or are receive replay to running back back at Stanford you know he he he is the lead guy. For four for Mike McCarthy and Packers on me and we need to start looking at that the offensive matchup that's where it's cute and inching and then. To break it now from be it to standpoint. Defensive line wise you know you have the Clay Matthews you have beaten Beasley those two guys. Can be disruptive you know and it's now on the front another player. On each squad. Can you look can be that that Jack in Julius Peppers. You know reach into the fountain of youth one more time to have some impact plays or will it be Babineaux and his defense of crude. You know making some plays in the and you look at the young linebacker. Be able Jones a former LSU star. Manning the middle. For four for the fell for the falcons and you know that's really where the Packers have a stroke. You know because who is that guy in the back in form you know secondary. It's I mean you can collective play quarterback I mean because that's what they've been usually you the not not not even me any but they they've got safeties playing corner you know they've been banged up did it hurt so much and the falcons if they're gonna have a weak spot on that defense going to be in the secondary you know you know Alford has been able to do some different being the dale Collins has been able. The helpful now I think he can take advantage of meal. Can do believe it he's a big hear about it you know if you give him matched up with two right net so whether to Cobb war. One of the other young receivers that Green Bay has been. I think you can take it vendors some things they do so to some instinct beings that that will occurred happened in that game and it's to be at the game. It both games. This is where all the all the Turks come out this is were all. He's the only few weeks deepen the bag of tricks and you know. You know leaving things. Left to chance that you privacy some things and in both games deuce out imagine yet seen all year truthfully here there just a different look. To soften it and Ito that they're they're going to be key planning. To the outpost for this match of the units season things that that are little maybe strained my investment. Look I can tell you. Mike Tomlin and his crew Todd Haley. And bill chicken his groove. Have go through that in if bill bull as far as book of rules. Eight and me are gonna manipulated. At bids to period and it's you know as much as possible. I know the the old rule where you sit. A guy in in his numbers different but he is the union on the line of scrimmage you know we've we've seen a lot were offensive lineman. 76 is eligible. We can't you can't use that bed that manipulation. Like it was an advancement I know for a fact the all fourteen really have lived through that that book. And they're gonna look for May still looking for a way to steal six points you know and they may be due to steal you know ten points because. Another team has not paid attention. Or is not aware of something. In the rule book that they can medically and say look this is legal now. Text message here at 8787 from 5360. Sixes on the big New Orleans Saints fan. I'm so against the patriots. Or the Steelers and I think Aaron Rodgers while lucky is quarterbacks in the Lee. As much as the thousands are rival for the saint outlook the C met Bryant finally he would he deserves I would love to see. It stay in the conference wolves though. I don't mean stay in the division. And Matt Ryan I believe is so underrated that Dexter says that the 366 look at it. He's underrated this year. He's had some rough years now you know he plaster his office of line with bank and a few thrown he was you struggled at the this year. Like do said he might be league's most vital player. Bullets are open at 260187 XX 870 eights have accused of cursing and out here. As many sit still to get ready for the NFC and AC title games here on your home for those gains on W if you can't drink all day they'll start early in the morning that's the sign here at Manning's three confine Deuce McAllister myself. He is set for AFC NFC title games. Right here on WO 305. 504260187. XX 878 semi mark. On 11 you'll want to be moved. Do they mark a needle and particulate matter or Q known that the on that the epidemic the and and what it is that but it. With the quote in the article we beat them we. Know. And Alberta. We're looking at that what you hear about it you don't. You know it could. Mean. The couple who. And natural movement you hear an appointment. That he keep government and we don't eat and beat it. Right when. He would you go. Was able to admit that he brought. Notre. In total Brady. On I didn't go out and Clark and mark are you want us to these questions. And. That's how it. Ego identity right now it is what have you done for me lately and so not to say that the Steelers. Some bulls in the seventies don't count. But currently they don't count her. And so when you look at the situation. Tom Brady having low and he symbols in steel playing now and you know you don't have a two branch on and in I mean until green winning Super Bowl I think that's I don't know why it is so much relevant. To the appointment to the fact that the other part of it is. Not the site they can't afford to me it's all for Yates you know they do understand you know that window in how they after. Bring in some guy that can come in contribute you know they they they need to create Robertson you know they'd they'd mutinies and why are they need they need. Apparently you know that's the count offseason they have to have a year and you know to be able to get themselves in the playoffs though. We don't have to deal with the level Zain we. Can't wolf well we hit pull for Dallas you know let's just say it was important to say because they played today. The gonna have about 35 million dollars happily which is a lot of money that's a lot of money you look at it that that money goes from it you still going to be up there to Iowa tops in the league but if you go by millions and got about 92 million of that money. Yeah I get. But in passing it 3035. Million dollars you can add that much that's been this year plus the salary cap. You cared of about five million dollars from this year to through next year so that I have an opportunity. That I can do it go out there it's been like the New York Giants did this past offseason but you've been necklace in an area like. But the Jacksonville Jaguars went out and sign a few guys increase heating bills that some money particularly the at some football but I think it fairly ask that you wanna priorities. Glenn lock him up now to let him hit the freedom arm because you go. It is gonna be a market for so don't even let them give it to bidding war we already have a house while like you that. Well another part is. You know when you start deceptive marketing and some people say well I wouldn't pay it solo listless let's look at what is. One year deal looks you know his one year deal even with incentives this year. Was probably about three and a half maybe right at four million dollars so you know that that at least the starting point. As far as the negotiations go you know I don't think that you get up into the 8000000 and nine million mark per year. Basis but I think it's the overall. Is what he's going to be concerned with you know what what what is it three year number look like for him in you know if I had to put a number Olin. I think it's anywhere between at war. Six million dollar ranked you know in. Some people say it would not that's too much will the impact that he makes on the game you know you look at Ian Rankin what they're able to accomplish since you talk about. Be it to Apple's. Better able to give you tend sax you know and that that doesn't happen. You know you wouldn't you can get ten sex from your defense of Apple's. Bomb that gives you formal voice inside of NASA's past Russ you know you talk about inside out team struggled. Third in short. Well and that the stated it was all me but he was a part of it and obviously. Lankans suit you better I mean so they've got a lot of young pieces there had to lose one of those guys. Would be hard you know just to overcome but. Think if they do lose and then they'd have to have a pretty good plan in place. To be able to make no form. Not to mention you fired Bill Johnson he's you don't want a whole lot of turnover along that the that the line you don't you have in the veterans of from a camp Jordan he's kind of leader of that of that group but. Tyler Davis and as a player that its fleet quite well in two years really developed. And of course you mix Shelvin rank exit in the fairly policy to fairly impact until the rankings for a full season we get to see that we could see that combo. Lineup for sixteen games either he saw Joseph the rankings come into play well in in May the future's so bright that guy to eventually be I think at six sack and the year kind of player. And you know answer no I don't normally when children came in it was he had David come out to the other rookies that play together. You know and they and then you know you you talked about Tyler it was normally Tyler and did you know nick nick nick nick fairly as the two apples and images rotate those who doubt now when he went to a three man front or the Okie load. The and Sheldon he eat he would slot outside there's a decent to me and and he would play you know all the ball or as far as the noses concerned so. It gives us the flexibility it gives them some options and they can rotate to different guys in there. But I mean to have both of those guys what they can go out and you know DT to insects from the defensive tackle. Position you know it's going to have to feel really good about that situation. I know were a few. What about six weeks away ultimately five weeks away from the start of create see in the second week of march of them in the league you're kicks off that yet that three day window to swear it. You could enter negotiations with the player B can't finalize a deal. Those first three days but. You look ahead five or six weeks from now. If you just talk about the kind of silly players we don't know Lockett jeans and guys that are projected to hit that hit the market don't end up in the marketing guys that end up. You cut it and hit the market before and that there's to be trades etc. with. Position wise. You would say would you feel better about find an Asian established defensive end. To compliment him Jordan on the open market ready draft that player. Alone all overall if I can finally. Mid range guy. That's one minute. Probably is not a double digit salary guy you know to millers gonna cost two million better. I would prefer to have a younger guy that's you know long term is going to be with you you know. Via the draft but I think you have to cover your bases and either be able to. On. Give a older live and it's been through. You can't have too many rushed sure you can have to not yes so you know it you can get a better data coming in and you know he doesn't cost you. A tremendous amount to be able to help you pass rush and I think you do it. You know I think that's also the case as far as quarterback is concerned. If you can go out there and get you know one of the upper Echelon corners that had some experience I think you do it you know as far as free agency. Is concerned by the end you know once a draft comes around. If you have a hiring corner and one of the past roses that you really really like isn't there then you know he. You're not a sit and take a Mecca. They flirted with the idea they explode exploration. Judy Joseph Hayden for the browns for the trade deadline last year. That's need to keep it up but I expect the seats though to make a run at an office of guard. It treats and that's where they're going to spin I think that we want their their first signings of free agency I don't know exactly who yet but I think they're gonna look to. To upgrade that Gartner Gartner does not because. The Kyoto story what with would with a plan tool for Jahri. For itself what he wants to come back the plate he kind of hinted that that he does with the right price so he he's got to wonder if this ain't gonna explore. The office of guard position I think early on a freaks at BQ you'll see that. Lot of and the other part you've got to remembers well you know we we've we've had the issue would arms is being hurt. This past year and so you had play elementary and leave though you know you have to say hey look. Blew the guard that we bring in easy versatile enough we can play inside and play both positions though. You know dateline is a guy you know O'Leary both those guys that cost a little bit but you know I think that they would definitely help the slot. Tivoli dose of restrictive freeagent a year ago I think he's via unrestricted free to shelve the Eagles signed him back I Deuce McAllister crushing dark wrap it up here at meaning that thirty more minutes he is set for AFC this title game here at the redeployment aka I give you set for the NFC and AFC title games. Packers and fountains at 205 followed by. The Pittsburgh Steelers and who is patrons at 540 right here on W them well a text from 3750 want to use this by the low throw to basketball I've seen them. There one and six in conference play. They TH you they were terrible yesterday at the free throw line. The charity stripe were obviously anytime you lose that if you kid the kid not that you're free throws Unita with the negate an. They're back there one at six it to it's that it does it for the train wreck for Johnny him. Trying to think of the player and I cannot think of his name but this strong his ankle who was gospels muted blue. As a guard for that team when he got hurt it was really over I mean but. You can Levy. May have been blatantly it may have been lately but you you you you can kind of see some of the fish defense sees early. And you were hoping that some of your older guys cannot hear you through and you could count. Mask. Some of those different beings but I mean. Mile loop and Blake Meehan Bob loses some games early. They haven't been able to get their confidence in it's just been it's been ahead. Not good the you know Warner Jolie vote. He made a coaching change of football less miles in the middle of season the coach who's on. And he got to wonder if to say the hour glass tunnel and out on joint go to particular could Jolie was background at duke was basketball. I if there's a sport that he was. Thought to be analyst and expert empathy you know that was it in his will house. He's he saw what a basketball major college basketball program in the way it should operate but Mike's chest you run it there. You know you gotta gotta match and he wants but there's no reason why Ellison can't be they're not competitive right now there's no reason for Ellison program. As the resources and talent to it which to draw from they that they can't. Compete for an FC championship in compete for turner at birth. You know every. Years I every two years every three years it's just it's it's it's inexcusable that particular. When yet no one recruitment in it in the country left shipments of its and he fell flat on its halo. And when you talk about news that duke. Haven't coached basis they have to wait this. You know give this guy everything that he needs as far as to be able to make. This this is successful program where their goal and sweet sixteen or elite eight. Maybe file for every year I mean but it was definitely sweet since six team and the elite eight you know and an Indian to elevate the women's program how they have a mean which even look at the women's program. At LSU and it's not decide you know. And and and that's really really surprised Aminu it is it's not just a moment just. Type talent there. Will you give me. You talk about. It's it's been rough you know it's almost like I was to baseball will skip. You know you you have football which is skiing let's go to baseball now in to see with the tigers can do in baseball because. Men and women to basketball had had been you know to level and you know really. Pokey Chatman when she was there van chancellor you know he would give them two tournaments but. Is it really at bed you know it is it's almost like. They don't know sport worded dominate is witnesses gymnasts you know that's that that's really what. It it has gotten through and they have a dominant program in women's gymnastic I mean but it's not like. We're we're we're not there yet in the southeast and out Southeastern Conference as far to say that that is the least sport it's if it's going to be basketball analyst news's bill to the blues sob in that sport. Fortunately they have a baseball program let's that your deuces and it looked Ole miss it isn't there to adopt him. In the pre season rankings Manila to baseball and who most of those polls. And five with the SEC are the top and a dog lovers and as a lot of about the say you know you talk about its view based on I mean that's just like talk rise to football I mean just because. You are so competitive. You know you look at what Vanderbilt is able to do year in and year out you look at what Florida. Is able to do year in year out you know you talk about obviously the tigers and you know Mississippi State Ole miss and then and then you don't normally Georgia has the a fairly. Decent or or really give a baseball squad salami. Some of those matchups you know. I don't know how often you get to go but whether it's just a regional or just a good. ACC matchup I mean you you you draw on average 9002000. People. You know and that's almost like go to play baseball in the OS AAA baseball video takes a look at those not well that's exactly right but then you start looking at some of the facilities. And these schools are are are competing you know to hang out. The biggest the that that the the biggest. Jumbo Tron monitor and we're talking about baseball you know that's what's that's what's so surprising. And the Tripoli organizations based in V. The ACC. Schools in you know a lot of times. Up north I think I know I know it's less than thirty days before its starts let. But north you get a lot of other teams they'll come down and played because it's still slowly it's still cold up there but you know those programs here are able to start playing in it's been. It's been really impressed. LSU and all of us both of the top to the tigers. There were there returned eight of nine position players positioned players for starters over the weekend the air pollution in Alex lying yeah so you have your Friday answers started already locked in means so. To think that it it it's not so you would say look you know every every. Practically home series obviously it's our win on all the role movement you know homes or use. I'm going to sweep a medal for displayed in all corporate suite you know just because you have those whom. He leaked on the pitcher's back. Got 89 returning number two in the country expectations. Last year for an LSU baseball team news. Weren't as high end of its Omaha. Yet to walk buses here for the Steve don't you water it like last year they over achieve right well and and they were young the councils didn't know any better you get the Romero coming. You got price in an boat Jordan Romero Jordan Malcolm back you get your entire lineup of that much and you wonder though with those expectations. Does that. Do you see this program will remember him to relax and remember last year to flirtation. Was it get over what schools the head coach. That that whole thing with him you know what whether he was gonna stay in Euro down arrow. Yeah but I'm I'm no he he he took the state right but it Coetzer. At LSU the flirtation with you know you know whether he was gonna stay would be was gonna leave. Different things of that nature. How much do if place somewhat of a role. If it into the season with him no link. That hey look you know we're a little look I can get some of the guys that were drafted to come back and I'll have a really really get squat the coming year. And man you know it it's going to be exciting. How often do you go to filled with people also weakened to a game a renowned any as me I guess a sneak into I just like to watch just like to watch it. Played the game grown up so you know. Some people. Maybe if the playoffs will they really get excited but I like to go and just he would be a series of good matchup you know so are probably kids at least two to three series. A year. Which you play Wii U political source opposite field sorts them by that not surprise me your best athletes shortstop massive field. Should I thought maybe you let it pixel. You have pitchman. When the pitcher Agudio when my feeling relatively deep in the hole and you know. BA would have had decent range you know like the city you know it was a curve ball and I hate it you know and that's what didn't play it enough to to see. Enough pitches to really stay in it but loved again. The curve ball as a humbly pitchman. It'll it'll home all the best of hitter that's for sure no doubt we're we're pretty good hitter that's pretty good hitters you know I was normally lead off a third so. You know I just want to get on base. And obviously be the use SP. To help and you know just generate some runs to its copies we yeah for power hit hit hit for power but it was all placement for me you know I just want to be able get on you don't base and you know Watson pizzas but Democrats. Faced the role pitches obviously there. And sides of this. Game here is a little bit harder. But illegal see if not do something else so you play professional football to still say that hitting a baseball is maybe the hardest thing to do its work. Handed out coronation for that game and you know really when you look at it. And having to. Not have the ability to go to the professionals right away you know it's very rare. That guys are able to skip the miners you know as far as baseball is concerned you know Moly it's about a year and a half two years in the minors. And so when he starts studying and looking at that that type of stuff you have to be in Lee hee Lee. You know prospect. To view it right up to the professionals where you can beat it on their forty man roster. I would probably say that is one of the harder things to do is sue you know be able to hit it. It's but it's just seeing it is it's in and I coronation in menial. And it's it's it's a lot in games mean based baseball news. It's what 11160. Lot of voices to congressional liaison it sits on a substitute gains I mean and so. I'll I play well over sixty avidly sixty you know evil in and agility and play us you know you played in jewels of in the playoffs so. You know you've got to be revealed the travel squad. As it heated hopefully that get America out you know to be able associate the pitches and rolls and you know mechanical part of it and so. Intriguing game. Yes and look here's the deal at least in the box and I have been baseball box were you it's still about 92 and three. As the font it's no fun to make it definitely give you mine and and that and then not honest with 110 of a second at 92 miles an hour is would you have. Make decisions on but previously at particularly its anti you know particularly its out of hock that thing you know also. He he'll brush off that played very very quickly and the man this is this is little different yet a lot and that that baseball hearts are except Italy though that will wrap up. Our conversation here get deuces picks for the NFC and AFC title game it's next on a special addition of extra sports are DeVito who I welcome back wrapping up here. NFC and AFC title game conversation Deuce McAllister pershing Garrett here many seasons Steelers fans start up. Gated yearlong absence of Pakistan's Dillon is twelve gopac you know it looked back up. We're thankful from Manning for yeah from Manning's room hosted us in all the fans that is that a year we noted there and I hit its heroes and there's been this talk to us which you know thanks to come and hang it out and Manning's though with us well they're here to see deuce that's for sure I'll about the Deuce McAllister former saints. Running back seats color analyst and there's the Paxson and in house loans Steelers fans as well. I write so predictions meant NFC Tennessee game we got. What my heart tells me oh what my mind tells me you know. Religious excellence that is Pakistan I'd actually for both games it it goes. I'm I'm a beacon of visiting teams compete in the visiting teams you know. It would be really really taught me to pick Atlanta anyway but you know when you just look at the matchup in when you look at. The quarterback play in an image and history of the quarterbacks. You know you have to be impressed with Roger's been able to go in there and really having no fear you know in the and they get and it Whitman. In it in Jordy. That should be able to help in play bomb they've got to count big Beasley. They have to account for big Beasley but you know that offensive line has been able to hold up really. Really well you know four Aaron Rodgers so. It impacts and upset. AFC is patriots Steelers. Go Steelers to a going global distillers you know beat me and castigated and you know they have to be able to create some pressure to you have to be able to even get. A niche position as to what some turnovers on Brady. You lose you listened to them talk about how. The Steelers have had success you know what's their plan. On and that's creating mismatch is this creating pressure creating confusion. Menu and I think the Steelers will be able to do so today. I have a hard time picking against Tom Brady. And the patriots in Foxboro the ravens are the only team that had their number at Foxboro post season Watson divisional round are it was a while car around. The once and yet divisional round and in Andy in the title game a few years ago. I think the Steelers are kind of if they're after if there's a team that matches up the best with the patriots in the NC it is the Pittsburgh Steelers a particular reason I think. They can on the football on new England and there they had at the office to. To overcome a turnover or two that that's that Patriots defense feasts on turnovers. Typically. He can't weather that I think Pittsburgh at the U turn the ball over once. Two's with would be asked a lot but. If you took a ball over once for Pittsburgh I don't know that it's the death they'll let it might be for other teams optical with the patriots in the AFC in the NFC. Topple ball in on the Packers a love rod on the eve went out of his mind right now in. He talked earlier this week about being a bit of the underdog so. But the attackers and via the patriots super wolf that the one. In Houston for push out here wanna think Manny for host of this the last couple hours last couple weeks as well. Tot Jacobs on cited two year David Potter master control and of course the fights that here at me for taking good care of its dues so what's football than before. Get ready for yes indeed we are out.
