Robert Kraft Gives Honest Assessment of Patriots Drafting
"Heard from Robert Kraft yesterday was a man who was completely honest about where the the team is in a lot of different areas. I wouldn't will get into this but I don't think his quarterback comments were Something to really weigh in heavily on but I do think that overall I mean him talking about, you know, the draft specifically the personality just sound thrilled with having to Shell out as much money as he did and he basically admitted that the only reason they had to do that cuz they didn't draft well in recent years and and he committed what a lot of us have said where it's not sustainable to do that. You need the draft to be the lifeblood of your team so that you can do other things like you can't just every three years song ten free agents. It just it it's probably not going to happen be it's not economically feasible. And so I thought it was very refreshing for Robert to to talk to the assemblage yesterday and and really be honest and I think you know in judging from the comments at Boston Sports Journal com from my column off of this press conference wage. Think on a whole I thought the Patriots the Patriots fans reacted very well to it that are really like, okay. Well, at least now we know that the person in charge realizes is a isn't happy about it called last season horrible and B thinks that the team has made correction and is moving in the right direction. That's all anybody ever wanted to to hear from anybody at at one page place and they heard it from Craft and I think it made Patriot Nation breathe a little bit easier. Not that they weren't confident in Bill Belichick rebounding in any event, but I just think it reinforced that. All right. Well, we're still the Patriots thought we had a we had an off-year didn't go well we're going to correct things were going to get things back on track.
Is Cam Newton Ready to be Patriots Quarterback?
"The biggest question of all and of course, I'm talking about Cam Newton Cam Newton ready to be the quarterback for this team or false pause, as of today. It's false and I wrote a column this weekend for Boston Sports Journal, that basically laid out and I'm talking to different people both around the team and also around the league about where Cam is and there's three things that need to go on Nick and it needs to go on now and it needs to go on every day off of the day until the season kicks off and number one. It's cam has to lose weight. He can't he can't play a 250 anymore. He's not a young buck. We saw dead. You know, I thought this but it was confirmed by a couple of NFL people that I I talked to and I trust they said that cams legs got heavier as the season went on and off and run as much he wasn't as a as Elusive and the big thing is not only that but your legs are everything when you throw the ball, if you don't have your legs which you did earlier in the season, they threw the ball a little bit better. If you don't have your legs then you have nothing as far as power and things like that and also just accuracy if you don't have your legs then you have to compensate upper body and things just get all out of whack and that's what happened. When cam last year. So in cam I will give him credit on the I am athlete podcast. He did say, I think he was trying to lose ten pounds. I'd go less. I think he needs to get to 3235. I think that gives them a better chance to be sustainable. He doesn't he doesn't need to be 2:50 to run over linebackers anymore. There aren't that many linebackers that are 2:50 a.m. Should be in a business and his age are going to be 32 a plow on those guys over. So there's that there is he has to get into he he has a he has to get with her own coach. I hope he's working with one but he better be working on one that works on his mechanics all the time every day. Get back to where he was at the beginning of last season get it out of her system because he needs to learn how to just be able to flick the ball. Ten yards instead of making a whole body convulsion just to get the ball out in the last thing is the biggest thing Nick and we've talked about it. I thought is he needs he needs Express 24-hour premium tutoring on the Patriots Playbook and what goes on as far as all right. If the defense does this then I can change to this and what's my audible what's my check because I know everybody's all excited about Johnny Smith and Hunter Henry and you know, we you can also factor in The athletic fullbacks that they've wanted to have for two years. Dan Vitality is coming back supposedly and also they dropped adult and Keen to play that position because there's a choice that they want to be more like the 49ers with use checked. And so it's all nice and dandy that they have two tight ends and athletic fullback and people are absolutely right to say that benefit of that is you get match up issues where all right, if it's safety then we're just going to run over them if their linebackers then we're just going to run past them. We're going to throw the ball. That is great and all but it doesn't mean Jack if you don't have a quarterback who can't see the defense see what's going on check to the right play and take advantage of the defense and last year cam wasn't even close to that. So unless all those things happen and he's not there at this point. He is not ready to be the starting quarterback for the for the Patriots. Do I think he can get there and be better? Yeah, but we'll have to see.

"This is going to be a white knob Situation for them for for the next few days so you could be looking at up to eight teams potentially affected just this weekend if things go go sideways here. It comes a point where you wonder whether the NFL needs to press pause on the entire season and and blow up whatever plan they had before and come up with a new one. And again we discussed home. I personally as a layperson didn't understand how this could possibly work outside of a bubble. It doesn't make sense. There's too many people going home to their lives with their kids in school or else is our families or who-knows-what and other situations and who knows how many people they come in contact with just cuz that's what their lives dictate they have to do and and and I remained back in there together this bull your base here and yeah, you know it create this this this environment that's really hard to keep people safe in and then media Feeding Frenzy yesterday about well, what was Cam Newton doing did he fly suck? Did he go visit his kids was he going out to dinner? Like, you know that that is just absolutely ridiculous. These are real people who have Lives who have kids who are going to and from school whose wives may be going off and from their own jobs like enough is enough. Yeah. It's and it's it's going to get worse before it gets better unless a plan that makes sense gets put in place which right now we don't know what that is. So again, thank you for the Insight.

"Back to the Bruins. Beat down the honest media. My name is Evan Miller. I hope you guys are having a fabulous week this week on Bruins beat. We are discussing Bruins exit interviews. Usually a very depressing time because usually it's we're doing exit interviews. Then we enter into a long summer of nothing now, we're entering into a fall of potentially nothing the season supposed to start November 17th, at least for training camp. It's a tentative start which is always a very bad sign when it says tentative because it's probably not going to be when it starts and there's most I think Gamers. September 1st, whatever it is. We really don't know what this offseason holds except for the fact. It's probably going to be pretty freaking crazy. And if he's exit interviews have showed you anything. It is that it is going to be freaking crazy. And so, Ryan from Boston Sports journal and I discussed all the eggs interviews, especially to recruit because I think he's done here. But but I've had a change of heart on Torey Krug residing in Boston. So you'll get a different perspective which I think you'll you'll you might come around to you might give me crap for it. You might say Evan you're insane, but I think it's something different and I think it's something you're going to have get used to because it's going to probably happen. I know we're just getting to some other team related things before we get into the conversation. The wait is finally over and not for the first B conversation. That'll be in a second.

"Forty years watching enters always. Yes. Number two is when's Brady gonna retire who gives a rip enjoy it? I don't have any insight on that. But this is interesting. Greg Bavard covers the patriots for the Boston sports journal. And there are people in the latest story that have not ruled out the possibility of Tom playing one more year. Winning it and saying Sinar, I'm outta here. But there's a wrinkle to this one that I'm just going to throw out and I appreciate Greg doing this. Because it's real working. It's thoughtful. Let's say Tom plays this year and they win. And by the way, they're going to be better than last year. We know that our draft picks we know that their roster. Bella check is telling people have told you this in the last couple of weeks. He really does feel like his roster's going to be younger more at letting more nimble more dexterity more flexibility next year. They kind of felt like this year was regroup year. I mean drunk wasn't really available and crucial too late in the year. So this story goes on to say, listen Bella check after this year after this upcoming year. It's going to have the most cap space. He's ever had eighty six million dollars. That's like New York Jets level. That's a ton of cap space, and they're going to be some free agents like an Eshelman that you could move off of a Kyle van noy good players, but you're not going to re sign him. And if Brady one again, there is this sense that if you're Bella check said the story, and you wanna walk away by setting up the next guy. This is the way to do it. You can hand pick your quarterback ton of cap space, very little dead weight to clean break because the story also talks about the nuclear option that if New England wins big this year. And doesn't resign free agents? And either Tom walks aware that convince him they can tank the season and get Trevor Lawrence from Clemson who is in my opinion. And my sources opinions the best quarterback to come out of college since Andrew luck and people, and I agree with this think he's better than Andrew luck. I do as a talent. I think he has a better arm than Andrew luck. And you know, how high I hold Andrew luck. I think he's better than Andrew luck. I do I always I love Sam darnold. He's not Andrew luck. Trevor Lawrence is all time unique. I saw him a year and a half ago in high school at a camp in San Diego with the eleven best high school quarterbacks in the country. He was so much better than all of them. It wasn't close. He looked like a junior in college at seventeen years old last year. He took apart Alabama. This kid is all time special and he's supposed to be a good kid and dabbles when he runs a real program makes people accountable. He's a great kid. He's he would be the number one pick in the NFL draft this year as a freshman without a doubt, that's not even arguable pick. He wouldn't have been the number one pick at a high school. But he's the, but he would have been a top ten pick out of high school. That's how good he is. And I'm not joking here. So this story says Brady plays Brady retires eight million cap space free agents. You don't have to resign clean break. The Josh mcdaniels tank the season to get Trevor Lawrence as he comes out as a junior. It's interesting. The timing is perfect. You move away. You set it up for the longtime assistant Josh McDaniel who you're very close with Brady gets his stuff. Josh get his team. Ballot. Check gets his legacy, and it would be the twentieth year in Foxborough a nice round number and you could tank in New England. I mean good God. The Sixers called it the process. It was bad for seven years six years. They've bought so much equity with that fan base..

"As I say, you can find us on Twitter or Facebook. We're asking you about the loud statements made in this divisional round of the playoffs. And we're asking you to take our poll for Monday MVP at went back. And I made a flow chart I stink at art. I can't draw stick figure with a ruler. But I do like to make stars and rectangles and sometimes little bubbles around key stats or keynotes. It it to me significant that of the four winners this weekend. Team rushing yards were off the charts. Do you know the team that rush for the fewest number of yards was the saints only using my air quotations one hundred thirty seven yards rushing and think about it. The eagles had a weaker secondary that did get exploited. Some by the Chicago Bears and they were behind early by two scores. Meaning drew Brees needed to throw the ball for them to find some momentum and pick up some yards quickly. So early on they weren't committed to the run as much, but they still finished up with one hundred and thirty seven yards rushing. That's the saints. The patriots powered by Sony Michelle one hundred fifty five yards rushing DR. Remember the question marks about the patriots running game and their commitment to the running game member. Michelle was injured for a while. He's banged up. And they weren't running the ball nearly as much now James white in my opinion. Maybe the patriots MVP the season. He's extremely versatile. He did not. If I could go back and look really quickly at the box score. But I'm pretty sure he did not have any carries on this game. Instead he was all completely about the catches, but fifteen of them. So a lot of times, and I talked about this with Christopher price who joined us in the first hour from Boston. He covers the patriots for the Boston sports journal, very often the patriots. In addition to running the ball in this game. They use that short passing game. The slants the crossing routes allied times. There are picks that are set by fellow receivers that short run game the dinks and doing says, I call them or actually the Dink and dunks. Don't get stuck in my head from all the stupid doing that. We have. The first weekend of the playoffs. So all of those short patterns, and they're run by Julian Edelman there certainly run by James white of times, Chris HOGAN has filled that role those also simulated passing game because a lot of its stuff is underneath. And so even when the pats don't have a run game. Did I say they stimulated passing game? Sorry, I'm going to say they stimulator run game. Even when the pats don't necessarily have the guys to run the ball like they do now. That's how Brady gets rid of an early keeps from getting hit at there happens to be a tough pass rush or a good group of run staffers on the other side. And so they kept the chargers off balance the entire game. Just the way they started out methodical officiant again mixing in pass and run. It's all those surgical at times at its definitely cold blooded. Now, nobody wins the game on the first drive. But the way that they went to work goodness. The chargers. While they were in that seven defensive back set. The patriots knew exactly how to attack it and it worked to perfection early on. It's after hours Amy Lawrence on CBS sports radio. Patriots had never scored touchdowns on their first four possessions in a playoff game despite their storied history. First time they've ever scored on the first four possessions all touchdowns for the patriots finish up with one hundred and fifty five yards rushing. Then the chiefs now keep in mind they lost their top running back. Once they found out. He lied about his his off season transgressions. But they still ended up with a hundred eighty yards rushing. Against that colts defense. Do you know the colts have not mistaken, actually, Chris you can look that. But I'm pretty sure the colts hadn't allowed one hundred yard rusher. All season long. That was one of the things that they did really well, and here's Damian Williams hundred twenty nine yards and a score. Here are the cheese a hundred and eighty yards as a team rushing the football. And then finally the astronaut Michael numbers for the Rams tell me this. When you think about the Los Angeles Rams, do you really think they're a rushing team? No, you think about Jared Goff. You'd think about Sean McVeigh, you think about the aggressiveness in the high flying high octane weapons that they've got you think oh, they're a run team run. I. No, you think about Robert woods and Brandin cooks. You think about girly while he did. In fact, have was seventeen rushing touchdowns this year. In the regular season. He also had three through the air. But you think about the fact that he's versatile and can hurt you a variety of ways. You don't look at the Rams like a ground and pound ball control team. And yet they beat the Cowboys at their own game. One hundred seventy yards rushing at half two hundred seventy three yards rushing for the game phenomenal. And so it's not a mistake. That we ended up with multiple running backs in our latest Monday MB people. We went back and forth on the cheese MVP, and we decided not Damian Williams, though, he was really impressive. We decided to go with the duo of Justin Houston and d Ford. They put a lot of pressure on Andrew luck. Luck out sacked three times. But he was under pressure. A lot more than that. And this is not something the colts have had to deal with all season long. And so d Ford and Justin Houston. We're a pain in his rear end. They combined for six tackles. Three sacks four tackles for loss. And then another five quarterback hits. They were menaces to the Colt society, but monsters for the chiefs and feeding off that energy in Casey. And as I mentioned, it's been a long time for Kansas City. Anybody wanna know what Andy Reid has to say about how it's their first home playoff victory since nineteen Ninety-three all of that can be blamed on Andy Reid. But. Last year's twenty point collapsed against the titans. Sure can be caught up and all that. History. I love history because it makes you better. You learn from it and you move forward. And so that's that was important thing for our guys. Get caught up on all the stuff that happened in the past. But there's something you can learn from the play before the game before let's let's make even greater than you already are your one out of thirty two and the National Football League. Just make make yourself better. I love that. I love the fact that he says I'm not into history unless it makes us better. Oh, I kind of feel like a twenty point collapse at home would be the perfect motivation for getting better. Eight five five two one two four two two seven that's eight five five two one two four CBS. Let's talk to Mike in Atlanta. Welcome to after hours CBS sports radio. Yeah. Good morning, Amy. I really look forward to your knowledge on a Monday morning after another great NFL weekend. Oh, thank you so much really know what you're talking about. I appreciate it. I had to call and compliment you on the allergy may between Julian Elleman and fish, exactly. He'll take even the hook him. He'll take all online off your real keep going. Yeah. Yeah. And the fact is even when you think you've got him like, I can remember try to grab a fish who's obviously still alive and fighting for everything he's worth with both hands, and that thing will wriggle and twist, and you know, he's flopping his tail and he's jerking his head all around. He's not giving up until he has no breath left. But I tell you what maybe you should make a cameo Miami dolphin uniform before they let him retire. Maybe he'd make a good dolphin. The I don't know that the patriots are actually I shouldn't say that Bill Belichick is heartless if he's decided that joy element has run. Its course he will in fact allow him to go anywhere else. Maybe he could go the way of Danny amendola, and they they certainly could face them inefficient uniform. Right. Right right again. Thank you. I get out of your early do lift three AM. I appreciate you doing that bridge between another great NFL weekend. And no work other reality of the work day. Oh, you know. I feel. Yeah. I feel the manic Monday myself, Mike, thank you so much for your phone, call you welcome. All right. Just a couple of things to follow up with. Yes. I was correct. Always go with your first answer the colts did not allow a one hundred yard rusher in the regular season. And so to give up a hundred eighty yards total, but one hundred twenty nine hundred and it was something like one hundred twenty nine Damian Williams. There's a lot of numbers in my head. That shows you again the way that the chiefs were able to make some room. And honestly if you look at the four division winners and think about the run stats. It goes to those battles in the trenches. And how well the offense lines played for the chiefs. The Rams the patriots and even the saints. Eat is a fantastic weapon to be able to to offer a balanced attack. To be multidimensional. Another thing all of these winners have in common. They spread the ball around. Receptions for ten different guys nine or ten different guys on the saints roster. We know the Tom Brady does that all the time hit six seven eight different guys on a drive. The chiefs. Okay, they only through to five guys. But a hallmark is balance and spreading the ball around. Because that way the defense doesn't know what you're going to do. You keep that Diaw balance you dictate instead of react. You don't let the defense dictate to you..
"boston sports journal" Discussed on The MMQB Podcast with Albert Breer
"Once cra- camp starts, this is referencing a report from my buddy, Greg powdered Boston sports journal. He said that there has not been any sort of come to Jesus meeting the patriots open camp on Thursday. So by the time you're listening to this, it'll be six days away. I don't think it's business as usual quite. I don't necessarily think there's going to be any sort of come to Jesus meeting. They've had six months to do that. So I don't know why they would do it now if they haven't done it already, I think there's going to be an attempt to try to work the stuff out during camp. I think Bella checks handling of Brady will be very, very interesting. And a lot of that we won't see. But you know, how is he handling him in the meeting room is the m. f. ING him the way that he has traditionally over his eighteen year career. Whereas Alex Guerrero in the building, there are lots of questions there and the tension didn't get them last year, but going through a full year of it and having all that lingering and having some issues in the roster, it's it's going to be fascinating to watch the patriots this year. And again, we may never find out whether or not we made we made if never never, really be able to. Point at something and say, this is where it had its effect, but I certainly don't think that things have been as healthy in the building over the course of the last year as they were previously. And I do think that it would benefit them to meet. I don't think that there I, I'm not betting on them doing it because again, they've already had a four or five months to do it and they haven't done it to this point. Question number five from Chris Walker, that's at we retaliate first predictions for breakout player on offense and a breakout player on defense. I actually mentioned the offensive player that I think could wind up breaking out, and I want to give you a name that that'd be really easy for you to pick. Based on how they played his rookies or whatever else I want to give you guys that maybe no, that that not many people were talking about last year. The potentially could break out, and so I'm going to give you that name that I mentioned a second ago Cordis. I think you finish the year strong. He's very physically gifted. He was an incredibly incredibly. Productive college player, and he's going to be playing in a very receiver friendly offense and what not. Leflore is bringing to Tennessee. And so give me Koi Davis, potentially as your breakout player on the offensive side of the ball on the defensive side of the ball, I'm going to give him a leak Hooker and anybody listens to this podcast knows how much I think of him. He played very, very well right before he got hurt tearing his ACL and ending a season last year in October, the Bronco the colts were ecstatic with what they'd seen from from from Lee Hooker. To that point. The coaches believed that he was ready to turn another corner as happy as they were with where he was..
