The Drive with Big Al & DMac LIVE in studio! Cecil Lammey joins the show to say Denver should expect a one-back set with one WR & three TEs the majority of the time against Dallas, and there will be few tricks, just a balanced power attack. Mike Fisher joins the show to talk about the potential labor strike coming in the NFL & the rich getting richer. Fisher says Rod Marinelli’s mentality seems to be ‘don’t blitz’ but it demolished the Giants & the Cowboys D can keep things simple with no big names outside of Sean Lee & the inspirational Jaylon Smith.
Dmac asks Big Al if the Dallas Cowboys have a fan-base that rivals the Denver Broncos, and Big Al hints at the Cowboys being a fraud living off their rings in the 90’s. The guys debate which franchise is more relevant, and which one has the higher ceiling & better owner. Also, Mike Pritchard makes an appearance to pay off the King Soopers Fan Pick ‘em Shame Game LIVE! Big Al says the Broncos will need to run for more yards than the Cowboys in order to beat them. DMac asks how we will remember Danica Patrick, and if she is a breakthrough athlete. Big Al inquires about Andrew Luck in Denver & finds out what DMac would give up to get him, and the guys remember Denver was in the Luck sweepstakes for a time. Dmac checks with Rockies fans on if they are getting excited as CarGo’s bat gets hot. DMac says the Rockies are not afraid of Kershaw, and he never thought we would catch the Diamondbacks. Big Al wants a playoff scenario guarantee for Colorado, and DMac assures him there’s no reason to be down because Holland has been nails.
The guys hint at a Shane Ray comeback, and Al reminds the audience of all the first-rounders on Dallas’ O-Line. La’el Collins falls to the Cowboys after his draft-day fiasco when it was announced he was scheduled to talk to the Louisiana State police days after the 2015 NFL Draft. Cecil Lammey joins the show to say Denver should expect a one-back set with one WR & three TEs the majority of the time against Dallas, and there will be few tricks, just a balanced power attack. Big Al asks Cecil about Jonathan Cooper & all of Dallas’ first-rounders along the O-Line, and why Dak’s story-line will always be tied in with Paxton Lynch. Cecil says the Broncos must live in the box this week, and Aqib can match up 1-on-1 with Dez but the problem will be with Jason Witten. Listen to the interview HERE! Big Al says Aaron Rodgers’ skillset is so unique, you can’t possibly compare him to another NFL QB, not even Trevor Siemian. Al is fonder of Joe Montana as a good comparison for Trevor, and callers throw out names like Roger Staubach & Drew Brees. The comparisons roll on for Trevor Siemian, including Tony Romo as an underdog from a small football school with the smarts to succeed in the NFL. DMac throws out names of NFL QBs, and Big Al decides who he would take over Siemian. Also, Big Al has Denver beating the brakes off Dallas.
The Colorado Avalanche decide to retire Milan Hejduk’s No. 23, and DMac runs through the Broncos that are eligible for the HOF in ’18. Big Al points out Deshaun Watson’s Texans O-Line woes. Mike Fisher joins the show to talk about the potential labor strike coming in the NFL & the rich getting richer. Fisher says Rod Marinelli’s mentality seems to be ‘don’t blitz’ but it demolished the Giants & the Cowboys D can keep things simple with no big names outside of Sean Lee & the inspirational Jaylon Smith. Also, Fisher hints at the conversation he had with DeMarcus Ware about what ‘D’ will be on his hat this weekend when he’s standing on the field. Listen to the interview HERE! Finally, Big Al & DMac discuss why the Broncos didn’t want to pay Ware & Manning because they were afraid of injuries.
