The Drive with Big Al & DMac LIVE in studio! The guys dive into Matt Patricia’s allegations about a 1996 sexual assault charge, and decide how deep the Lions should be digging on the story.

 

LISTEN TO HOUR ONE HERE!!!

DMac is interested in what numbers the Broncos rookies landed, and sees that Bradley Chubb landed number 55. The guys dive into Matt Patricia’s allegations about a 1996 sexual assault charge, and decide how deep the Lions should be digging on the story. Big Al is proud of Ben Simmons & the 76ers, and expects them to be good for many years to come. DMac asks Al what the Nuggets should do about being stuck in between the draft lottery & playoffs, and if Al is still excited about the Tiger vs. Phil matchup. The guys dive into Big Ben Roethlisberger’s situation, and decide if Ben is being a baby. Al says the Steelers drafted Mason Rudolph to stack their QB core, and DMac says it was to call Big Ben’s bluff about retiring.

 

LISTEN TO HOUR TWO HERE!!!

The guys take a look at the Broncos draft, and Big Al decides if he’s still happy with the Bradley Chubb pick. Al prepares Broncos fans for Shane Ray to be the starter, and not Chubb. DMac says the Broncos don’t believe in Shane Ray anymore. Al & DMac discuss ‘the trifecta’ of Von Miller’s strip-sack, Malik Jackson recovering it, and scoring a touchdown in Super Bowl 50. Al tells DMac just how rare that feat is, and why the Broncos are starved for big plays like that since Wade Phillips & DeMarcus Ware left. DMac asks Al about Mike D’Antoni completely flipping the NBA game on its head with three-pointers and short practice sessions, and says no sport makes things more complicated than NFL football. Al & DMac decide what the Broncos will get out of their Tight End position this year, and what to expect out of Rookie mini-camp.

 

LISTEN TO HOUR THREE HERE!!!

We get an update on Tiger & Phil at the Players Championship, and if they are staying away from the water. DMac wants to know where this new information about Matt Patricia’s sex assault allegations came from. The guys remember ‘Vanilla Ice’ and Big Al says he was busy winning national championships at CU when ‘Ice Ice Baby’ was at No. 1. Also, extensive background checks and fingerprints, as well as being ‘innocent until proven guilty.’ The guys wrap up the show taking phone calls on Matt Patricia’s sticky situation.
