The Drive with Big Al & DMac LIVE IN STUDIO!!! Troy Renck of Denver 7 joins the show to talk about Kyle Freeland pitching on short rest, and says the Cubs bullpen is vulnerable. Patrick Saunders with the Denver Post joins the show to talk about the Rockies as they prepare to take on the Cubs in the playoffs.
DMac plays highlights from the Broncos game against the Kansas City Chiefs last night, and Big Al says Joe Woods & Bill Musgrave had beautiful gameplans & Bolles and Miller must be better. Al says Chris Harris Jr. made him a fan all over again, and the Broncos got a lesson in tough running from Kareem Hunt.
In the Big 3, Big Al tells DMac he’s tired of hearing the phrases ‘Showtime Mahomes’ and ‘Little Phillip Lindsay.’ The guys agree Case Keenum is either spectacular or a disaster like Ryan Fitzpatrick, and Al point out the amazing game on the ground for Denver.
DMac wants the Broncos to identify go get their QB like Plummer & Cutler, and points out what KC did to get Mahomes. Also, Big Al tells the listeners the ‘hook & ladder’ was the best play of the night.
Big Al says DT had a good night last night against the Chiefs, and DMac says Keenum hits that final pass to DT 9 out of 10 times. Big Al can’t believe the Chiefs were in Cover 2 at the end of the game, and DMac notices that plays are being called by Bill Musgrave for Andy Janovich.
Troy Renck of Denver 7 joins the show to talk about Kyle Freeland pitching on short rest, and says the Cubs bullpen is vulnerable. Troy says Colorado will need to make Jon Lester uncomfortable, being that Lester has experience in these situations. Troy says the Broncos playcalling was no match for Patrick Mahomes II & now everyone is disappointed that their record sits at 2-2. Listen to the interview HERE!!!
The guys talk about Case Keenum working with virtual reality technology, and Big Al says lobby for it if it’s what Keenum needs to become the best QB. Also, Big Al gets into his issue with Garett Bolles, and says it’s time to sit Bolles down.
Patrick Saunders with the Denver Post joins the show to talk about the Rockies as they prepare to take on the Cubs in the playoffs. DMac asks Patrick about the usage of Tony Wolters compared to Chris Iannetta, and what happened with Walker Buehler’s RBI. Patrick says the Rockies can’t let Jon Lester dominate the way Buehler did yesterday. Listen to the interview HERE!!!
DMac makes fun of Patrick Mahomes’ voice, and his comparisons to John Elway. Big Al is upset about the loss to the Chiefs, and DMac is not worried. Also, DMac knows the Broncos are at least better than the NY Jets & Al prepares to sound the alarm.
Callers ask Al why the Broncos continue to roll with Garett Bolles, and DMac is confused why DeMarcus Ware is Dancing with the Stars instead of coaching the Broncos. Also, DMac says it’s not yet time for Chad Kelly to see the field & Big Al wants Ryan Ramczyk instead of Bolles.
Al & DMac wrap up the show by taking calls on the Broncos game Monday night, and previewing the Rockies matchup against the Chicago Cubs tonight.
