The Drive with Big Al & DMac LIVE in studio! The guys ask Denver Post Rockies Beat Writer Patrick Saunders about the awkward check swing in the Twins game last night, and Tony Wolters coming back from concussion. No Fly Zone card-carrying member Chris Harris Jr. joins the show with reaction to NFL Network’s Top 100 slotting him in at No. 63 overall for ’17. Harris calls it a joke based on popularity, and says he’s focused on the Pro Bowl & All-Pro votes, not NFL Network because being in the Top 100 doesn’t put one in the Hall of Fame.
DMac asks Al why the Broncos are not in a rush to sign John Elway, and the guys deliberate the possibility of Peyton Manning having a management role here in Denver. The idea of Elway not being part owner of the Denver Broncos is becoming real, and DMac highlights Matt Russell’s path to redemption. Also, LaVar Ball gets the guys’ attention, DMac finds NBA blowouts compelling & the best owners in sports are up for debate. The guys ask Denver Post Rockies Beat Writer Patrick Saunders about the awkward check swing in the Twins game last night, and Tony Wolters coming back from concussion. Concentration seemed to be on the batter being called out & not finishing the play, Saunders says, and Al gets Patrick’s thoughts on Charlie Blackmon not profiling like a leadoff hitter. Listen to the interview HERE!
Championship importance & what’s going through the typical mind on Senior Day. DMac wants specifics on the goal of every season, and when is the best time to start preparing for the next year. The idea of tanking in the NFL is brought up, similar to what teams are doing in the NBA, and Big Al highlights the few teams that do win in the NBA, and the guys talk about the hard draft times the Nuggets have fallen on. Also, DMac wonders if Tim Tebow was merely a piece in the ‘suck for Luck’ campaign.
No Fly Zone card-carrying member Chris Harris Jr. joins the show with reaction to NFL Network’s Top 100 slotting him in at No. 63 overall for ’17. Harris calls it a joke, based on popularity, and says he’s focused on the Pro Bowl & All-Pro votes, not NFL Network because being in the Top 100 doesn’t put one in the Hall of Fame. Chris says it’s simply for television purposes, and Big Al thinks he’s already earned his way into the Broncos Ring of Fame. The guys ask Chris who the Champ Bailey of today’s Denver Broncos secondary is, and he mentions how hard it is for a rookie to learn all the intricacies of the complicated Denver defense. Listen to the interview HERE! Also, the need for LaVar Ball to scale things back now that they’ve picked up national coverage, and why he will trend down quickly with a sexist, expensive shoe. Al won’t be satisfied until the Cavs meet the Warriors in the ’17 NBA Finals, and says Gisele is a bigger global superstar than Tom. Finally, Mike & Mike part ways, and it’s no small secret the two may not like each other.
