Tom E. Curran and Phil Perry look ahead to the Patriots/Bills game, including Tre'davious White re-thinking his comments and calls for 'payback' for Rob Gronkowski after the dirty hit in Buffalo. Does head coach Sean McDermott have the respect of the locker room to focus on the importance of the game for the Bills and not petty retribution?
Also, Tom and Phil talk more about the ups and downs between the relationship of the Patriots and Alex Guerrero.
Finally, a discussion on the four Patriots named to the Pro Bowl, did anyone get snubbed, and Tom wrapping things up with some beautiful Christmas singing.
OTHER EPISODES THIS WEEK:
Celtics guard Terry Rozier joins Kyle Draper and A. Sherrod Blakely in this week's episode of the "Celtics Talk Podcast". Rozier has some great stuff on the team's great start to the season, how Brad Stevens is a genius, what has surprised him about Kyrie Irving as a teammate, and what he learned from Isaiah Thomas and looking forward to guarding him when he's healthy and the Cavs come to town.
The Patriots improve their record to 4-2 with a win over the Jets, but there are still a lot of concerning factors for New England. Mike Giardi and Dan Koppen talk about something the team isn't used to - close games.
Giardi also dives into whether there is a major problem with the locker room dynamic, and whether all the moves they made in the offseason were blown way out of proportion by the media and fans of the talent added, but didn't factor in the personalities they lost.
Koppen and Giardi also look at how the offensive line play has fallen off, despite the same personnel as last year. Finally, discussing the late scratch of Stephon Gilmore due to a concussion. Anything to read into the timing?
