The Drive with Big Al & DMac LIVE in studio! Peter McKee joins the show to preview the Broncos game at home on Sunday against the Patriots, and celebrate Veteran’s Day. Insider Cecil Lammey joins the show, and DMac says right away that he’s had enough of Brock Olivo falling on the sword. Cecil says if you’re not getting it done, you will be replaced. Denver 7 Broncos Insider Troy Renck joins the show to say Allen Barbre doesn’t make much sense as the starting RT, and Brock can be at an advantage with quick passes and the screen game.
DMac asks Al about his athletic career, and Al laughs about his kids always joking with him about when they finally get a crack at doing great things. Al says he is still waiting around for someone to do better things at the University of Colorado than he & his teammates put together, and the guys agree they want the best for future generations. Marcus Cannon and Chris Hogan are added to the laundry list of Patriots injuries, and DMac asks Al if Denver can capitalize. Also, Menelik Watson is out, Trevor is the backup this week, and VJ is still not declaring who the Broncos RT will be. In the Big 3 @ 3:30, DMac mentions Martellus Bennett and his injured shoulder, and Big Al reminds him New England only needs Bennett for the stretch run. The Nuggets pull off a big win against the Thunder last night, and DMac is not impressed with Thursday Night Football when so many players are getting hurt. Peter McKee joins the show to preview the Broncos game at home on Sunday against the Patriots, and celebrate Veteran’s Day. Big Al asks peter what the addition of Martellus Bennett does for the Patriots offense, and DMac asks about concussions & CTE. Peter reminds Al & DMac just how badly the Pats play in Denver, and takes the Broncos to win. Listen to the interview HERE!
In Football @ 4:00, the guys talk about Tom Brady playing into his mid-40’s, and DMac finds out how the Pats were able to beat us last year. Al has a feeling the Patriots won’t be taking many sacks, becasuse Belichick doesn’t think the Broncos offense can move the ball & score points. Also, the odds of it being a low-scoring game on Sunday night. Insider Cecil Lammey joins the show, and DMac says right away that he’s had enough of Brock Olivo falling on the sword. Cecil says if you’re not getting it done, you will be replaced. Cecil says Philly was simply the better team last week, and the broncos must be careful that Doug Pederson didn’t discover something. Also, why every player in the Broncos locker room this week needs to be sick, tired and ticked off heading into the Pats game. Listen to the interview HERE! The guys discuss who is on the hot-seat for Sunday night, and Big Al explains how the Patriots salt you away with their backs and TEs. Demaryius Thomas is under the microscope this week, and Al says he needs to catch at least ten balls for a hundred yards. Denver 7 Broncos Insider Troy Renck joins the show to say Allen Barbre doesn’t make much sense as the starting RT, and Brock can be at an advantage with quick passes and the screen game. Renck mentions Emmanuel Sanders is not yet his same explosive self, and Denver will struggle to find big game-changing plays from their offense. Also, DMac & Renck debate if Denver has truly hit rock bottom this week, or if the worst is yet to come. Listen to the interview HERE!
In the Friday FIRE UP, the guys get some calls on the Broncos needing to RELAX, and how we can get excited to take on Belichick and the Patriots. DMac says we haven’t been this bad since 2010, and Big Al decides if this game against New England is a must-win, or just important. In the Fan Football Pick ‘Em, DMac, Al & Big Sexy all take the Jags over the Chargers, the Titans over the Bengals, and the Bears over the Packers. Lastly, everyone takes the Patriots over the Broncos on Sunday night.
