The Drive with Big Al & DMac LIVE in studio! We hear audio from Emmanuel Sanders on if he’s frustrated the Broncos receivers are not getting the ball, and DMac highlights differences in Sanders’ mannerisms & development from this year to last. Troy Renck joins the show to talk about Emmanuel Sanders’ turnaround, and says the juxtaposition was jarring.
DMac can feel it coming, and Big Al lays it out why the NY Giants have a real shot at upsetting the broncos on Sunday night. Al says Gallman is actually better than Darkwa, but New York has been starting the latter. Al reminds the listeners that despite New York’s record, they are a good team & Eli Manning is still a Hall of Fame QB. Al says if you did not play football at any point in your career, you will not be a successful head coach in the NFL, and points to Giants Head Coach Ben McAdoo as an example. The guys are shocked the US Men’s National Team couldn’t find their way into the World Cup, and DMac goes through the plot to show exactly how they missed out. We hear audio from Emmanuel Sanders on if he’s frustrated the Broncos receivers are not getting the ball, and DMac highlights differences in Sanders’ mannerisms & development from this year to last.
The guys gauge Emmanuel Sanders’ career trajectory, and Big Al thinks Denver should have never signed Sanders to an extension once Peyton Manning left. We hear from Mike McCoy on why he sticks with the run when the Broncos are winning & things are working well. McCoy says if you find a formula to win, stick with it, and Al says you don’t have to reinvent the wheel. Big Al says you can’t underestimate the ultimate impact of Peyton Manning, and it was a good move by the Broncos to bring Brock Osweiler back. Al says it sucked losing Osweiler in the first place, because Brock was cut from the Peyton Manning cloth. Al & DMac take a call on ideas for the National Anthem, and why the US Men’s National Team lost. Also, Big Al tells DMac a story about the Dallas Cowboys trotting their cheerleaders out to the 50-yard line. Troy Renck joins the show to talk about Emmanuel Sanders’ turnaround, and says the juxtaposition was jarring. Renck says if Denver continues to run the ball well, things will open up for the receivers, and Al asks Renck if Sunday night is a Giants head-coaching audition for Mike McCoy. Also, Troy says Peko’s energy has been huge, and teams are good when players hold each other accountable. Listen to the interview HERE!
DMac is disgusted with how rude Coach McAdoo has been, and Big Al reviews his grades for the Broncos, noting the Giants have been figured out. Al says this is not a trap game due to HOF QB Eli Manning, and who you have at quarterback matters. DMac thinks the Steelers are done this year, which makes Big Al laugh. The guys take some calls on the New York Giants game, and NYG skill players that could threaten to make a big play against the Denver defense. Big Al says the Broncos must jump out to an early 14-point lead against New York or they could be in danger of losing. Also, the problem with A-Basin, and why you just never know in this business when it comes to predicting the score of the Broncos game. Congrats to the Avalanche, and why Michael Jordan thinks 28 teams in the NBA, including his own, will be garbage.
