The Drive with Big Al & DMac LIVE in studio! The NFL schedule for 2017 begins to leak, and the guys break down their favorite matchups. Rex Ryan had some harsh words for Siemian on Schlereth & Evans today, and the guys laugh about some particular comments. Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post joins the show to talk about Kershaw’s attitude with Tyler Anderson & pitchers that truly care about their ERA the way Kershaw does. Cecil Lammey joins the show to answer DMac’s big question: Will Reuben Foster fall to No. 20 overall?!
Big Al already tabs the Broncos’ game against Miami as a must-win, and DMac isn’t excited about the Florida sunshine or the thought of seeing another game in New Jersey. The dumbest Super Bowl ever according to DMac and if Big Al is looking forward to dual practices with the 49ers in Santa Clara. DMac wants to know if Denver is set to tangle with New England at home this year in November on a Sunday night, and the guys decide if they’d be willing to go to Buffalo. Also, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post joins the show to talk about Kershaw’s attitude with Tyler Anderson & pitchers that truly care about their ERA the way Kershaw does. Saunders says it’s an individual thing, and spotty defense can put holes in any pitcher’s stats. DMac tells Saunders the Rockies organization will have some difficult decisions if Trevor Story doesn’t start seeing the ball better. Also, who would play shortstop if Story struggles, including the likes of Ian Desmond. Listen to the interview HERE!
The guys discuss Reuben Foster’s diluted sample causing him to test positive at the NFL combine, and Big Al claims the Warriors don’t need Durant to win a championship this year. Also, Cecil Lammey joins the show to answer DMac’s big question: Will Reuben Foster fall to No. 20 overall?! Big Al says he will not miss on his chance to say “told ya so” if Cecil’s gut instinct about the Packers drafting Joe Mixon in round one comes true. Reuben Foster is the ONLY guy Cecil would take over Christian McCaffrey, and what the Broncos think of second-tier guys like Julie’n Davenport will determine if they select a Tackle in the first round. Listen to the interview HERE!
Al says ‘oh wow’ to the idea that Paxton Lynch didn’t work hard enough last season. DMac mentions what can happen to a QB that doesn’t know the offense, and why Rex Ryan had so much trouble with starting QB’s. Changes to the team in it’s entirety can affect the QB just as much as a QB battle, and the guys agree Cutler was supposed to be the man for years in Denver. DMac thinks Elway is anxious to unwrap his Christmas gift in Paxton Lynch & see what he’s got, and Eli Manning starts to sound like his big brother, Peyton, when addressing these new fraud rumors.
