We opened the second hour of the show with Cecil Lammey of ESPN Denver joining us to break down the game of the week as Brady and Manning battle. Cecil surprisingly went with the Patriots to win this game. We then went around the NFL to do our weekly picks with former Jaguars tight end George Wrighster. A couple of surprises this week as the standings get tight with Jake on top by 2 games over Drew and George 5 games back.
It was a can’t miss first hour of The Weekend with Jake & Drew on ESPN Radio New Hampshire. We opened the show talking with former Patriots cornerback Ellis Hobbs (@EllisHobbs) about his time with the Patriots, playing against Peyton Manning, playing with Tom Brady, differences between Bill Belichick and Andy Reid. Hobbs also took us through Super Bowl 42 and the David Tyree catch and what was going through his head on that play.
We then talked about the final controversial play in Carolina when the refs picked up the flag and the Patriots lost to the Panthers. Field Yates of ESPN Boston then joined us to preview the Sunday night Patriots-Broncos matchup.
We started off hour two giving out our Pats Propaganda TSHIRT GIVEAWAY question. We then got in depth previewing Patriots-Panthers with the Panthers beat writer at the Charlotte Observer Jonathan Jones. Who wins the game? Who has the edge? Do people believe in the Panthers down in Charlotte? We then did our weekly NFL picks spot with former Jaguars tight end George Wrighster. Who are we taking this week?
Tune into the first hour of The Weekend with Jake & Drew on ESPN Radio New Hampshire. We started the show getting into the Patriots-Panthers Monday Night matchup and what to expect in the game. We then brought former NFL quarterback and teammate of Richie Incognito to talk about the entire saga. Also, Sage tells us how bad Dolphins GM Jeff Ireland is and what he did during his tenure. He also talks about how Cam Newton has evolved as a quarterback and how he was a “baby” last season. Also, who does Sage think is going to the Super Bowl and whose the one QB he wants in a must win game? We ended the show talking Red Sox and the offseason. Does Napoli come back? Does Drew come back? Will they pay Ellsbury?
