The Drive with DMac & Pritch LIVE in studio! Chad Brown joins the show to say he has no Dodgers jerseys in his closet, and the Washington Huskies are simply ahead of other programs. Chad expects the Buffs to get back on track against Arizona, but fears the athleticism along the offensive line is not enough to remain dominant in the PAC-12.
DMac says you’ve got to be kidding him about the TB Bucs placekicking, and Broncos fans are in for a treat once Shane Ray & Jake Butt return. The boys agree everybody is faster in the NFL, making Janovich no longer spectacular, and Peyton Manning didn’t care about having a fullback. Pritch says Broncos fans loved Howard Griffith, and DMac finally admits ‘all hail Jano.’ In the Big 3 @ 3:30, DMac says it feels like the Patriots got away with one against the Bucs, and Pritch says it was more than one. Also, Pritch wonders why baseball players can get away with hammering a water cooler with a bat, but when Antonio Brown does it, he’s criticized. The guys speak in Madden terms, and DMac continues to try & figure out what a ‘truck-stick’ is. DMac asks Pritch if he’s buying Cam newton’s apology to female reporter Jourdan Rodrigue, and both agree Newton will forever be held back by his perception.
The Buccaneers come up empty on three Nick Folk field goals, and the Bucs drop their TNF matchup with the Pats. DMac & Pritch figure out if kickers have time for prayer, and if Jameis Winston lacks focus at times. Pritch wants his QB to be like Jameis, and mentions the weapons that need to come through in order for Winston to be successful. DMac asks Pritch how the Broncos match up with the Patriots now that he’s seen a decent sample-size with New England, and Pritch mentions that he doesn’t want the game to become too big for Trevor Siemian. Trevor has much to gain according to Pritch, and he’s unsure of what happens once expectations are raised. Chad Brown joins the show to say he has no Dodgers jerseys in his closet, and the Washington Huskies are simply ahead of other programs. Chad expects the Buffs to get back on track against Arizona, but fears the athleticism along the offensive line is not enough to remain dominant in the PAC-12. Chad says Siemian has earned the locker room respect, but must play better on the road, especially when playoffs role around. Listen to the interview HERE! DMac thinks the Broncos are a playoff-caliber team with no playoff-caliber QB, and asks Pritch if there will be moments when Siemian has to go out there & win the game. The guys take some calls on Siemian’s arm talent & his ability to keep NFL safeties honest.
Pritch notes that he’s still waiting to see a special deep ball from Trevor Siemian down the middle of the field to lead DT or Emmanuel, and DMac says there will be moments with Trevor, just like there were with Tim Tebow. Ability is the ultimate trump card, and when the chips are down, the guys wonder is Siemian has enough to do spectacular things. Also, the difference in the pace of the NFL compared to the college pace. The boys get into their King Soopers Fan Football Pick ‘Em, and DMac looks to Big Sexy to keep his roll going as they pick the Chargers game against the New York Giants. Pritch thinks the Texans have finally found a QB they believe in, and DMac says it would be sweet to see someone beat the Chiefs besides Denver, Pittsburgh or New England. Pritch lays out what Denver Broncos fans truly want for Trevor Siemian, and DMac says it’s impossible to win a Super Bowl with a QB that deserves $20 million a year. Also, Pritch mentions the Broncos have the least amount of money allocated to the QB position in ’17.
