"They have half their roster, right? I mean, they have a big hole to fill there. So I actually think that they could draft over that quite easily and be able to just make sure that this team not only has some plug and play guys for 2022 is obviously the main goal. But looking ahead to 2023, there's going to be a lot of turnover again. And at some point, we're going to start talking about some of these other Devin McCourty, for example, and Matthew slater said this to us this morning. There was a conversation there between those two guys like, are we going to come back? Are we going to do this again? And if we are, we're doing it together at some point they're going to look at each other and say we're done, right? So you start looking ahead at some of these needs in 2023 too, which I know the Patriots are going to do in the draft. They're not just looking at it as a one year prism..

"In weeks, 15 through 18, the Patriots ranked 32nd overall in defense, 31st in past defense, 32nd in rush defense. Now, Aaron, who is a patriots fan, and he also likes his numbers, so he, that's a whole another tangent. But anyways, he said, well, take out the last week, even though I don't know why you would take out the last week. The Patriots played a familiar opponent who they've already played, who's already part of that, but anyways, let's take Aaron for at his word. Let's take out the final week. In weeks, 15 through 18. Not including the playoff game. They were 15th overall on defense 14th overall against a pass in 24th against the rush. So what are we talking about here? We're not touched. So stop talking about Bill Belichick and a patriots defense because this was not a patriot defense. And so getting back to what you're talking about about the game plan and the errors on the defense. To me, I think I would relate them this way. I think that they got the plan this week. The players got the plan or at least when it was clear Jalen mills was not going to play. And they saw the plan, which was basically we're just going to like sit back and just hope for the best against the bills. And I think that I think that the players lost some steam in that. And I think something that will touch on later, I think this was a theme in the final 5 games. Everyone's like, what happened to the defense after the bi week? I've gotten a little bit of Intel on that. We will talk about that a little bit later in the show. But I think this is intertwined, where it was like, these guys didn't like the plan. And it didn't put them in the best position, which everyone says that Bill Belichick normally does, which he does. And these guys just fail. They were not enthused about the game plan and about what they were asked to do and their play on the field reflected that. So it's to your point about that. And I'm sure we'll get into this. It speaks to the Matthew slater comment about how we need to stick together. And now that kind of had adds value you consider what it looked like and what you think the film told and then looking at those percentages, it makes it what should really scare you as a patriots fan is that's how potentially how dominating buffalo could be in this division going forward. If that's how drastic of a change that one game made, going forward. On the Matthew judon, I know we've spent some time on him on this show, but just speaking to what this game was. He played on just 22 of the 56 defensive snaps. That's 39%,.

"Yeah, honestly, Michael and wenu tackle eligible. We talked about how maybe that was the call last week when he false started. Great opportunity, great game for something like that. My other point is just to move on from the game Pro Bowl, awesome for JC Jackson. Should have got his first last year. They should rename the Pro Bowl, the Matthew slater postseason football invitational exhibition or whatever, just name it. Like, I don't know, is there a Pro Bowl MVP trophy? Yeah, absolutely. I think there's an offensive and defensive MVP at the Pro Bowl sometimes. Okay, well, even that may be at the pro bowls ironic, but yeah that's not a thing. I'm trying to look right here, but you are right. All right. Well, it's time to add a special team's MVP and name with Matthew slater trophy. And then who am I missing? Could we forget? Matthew judean patriots only team the league with two players named Matthew and the Pro Bowl, they didn't so there's two guys I think that they really missed on. Therefore didn't make it because Justin Tucker's name has more brand value. And Justin Tucker is awesome. It talks been better. Nick folks been better this year by just about any measure. Nick foley because he's been working for this year, right? He's missed less kicks. Is that he's attempted more. He's missed less and he's kicked and tougher environments. Okay, so Justin Tucker won the Pro Bowl nomination when he hit that 16 6 yard in a dome. That's what wanted for him. And I don't know. What was your the other guy they missed on? I think his Devin mccordy. Maybe because he had kind of a rough game against the colts, but I think outside of that Houston game, which was, as he said, you know, kind of the work. I think he called it the worst game he's ever played. Outside of that Democrat has been excellent this year and when you look at all the new pieces on defense, he's really the guy coordinating that. And I know high towers are part of it, but even he didn't play last year. I attribute so much of the defense's successes here. The number one defensive football. I attribute so much of that success to Devin McCourty. And I know that players don't get selected to the Pro Bowl off of what they do in leadership or making plays away from the ball, which is a lot of what Devin mccordy does, but he's been here for over a decade now. I think this is one of the best seasons he's ever played. I thought he deserved that recognition. I'm not surprised he didn't get it. Again, the whole story goes, but he's been real. I just want to point that out..

"Yeah. I owe some credit to everyone in the building, or this is the honor to be a part of the Patriots. This experience was really one of a kind beyond gratefully thanks. Devin, he thanks Adrian Phillips, thanks, Matthew slater, says the Patriots have a spot in his heart forever. So for the players hate playing for the Patriots crowd, Adrian Colbert didn't. And he's a guy who likes to have fun. I mean, he's streaming video games all the time. Check that out. The other way. I'll give you another cut from around the league that I find hilarious. Remember when the dolphins were supposedly going to sign David Andrews and then they even met with them and then they didn't get them and they settled for Matt scoring instead? Yes. Guess who just got caught? Yeah, I saw that as well. So the dolphins who are supposed to be there, they let cars go. They didn't finish a deal with Andrews. Scores sucked last year. I don't know why they thought he could be the starting center. I mean, remember the bolt east with Baltimore last year. If you don't know what I'm talking about, remember the snaps in that Baltimore game against space rights. And Miami now with to a back there who's not exactly the most durable player, they don't have a starting center . That's kind of big. So week one, the dolphins are probably gonna have a new starting center. So that, you know, kind of pick for the Patriots. Good news, because that's a good segue into this edge group for the Patriots, which is just ridiculous, right? And we've seen it all training camp all preseason everything and the dolphins are gonna have to set protections and get the mic points all checked out with a center that they were not planning on rostering or at least not planning on starting this year. That's good news for the Patriots. Now, the question here, and this is probably one of the biggest questions going into cut down day for Bill Belichick and the Patriots is what happens with chase one of itch. He's easily the most besides maybe Nikhil Harry..

Just one behind the league leader. Jackson not being voted in has some other players around the league, voicing their frustration on Twitter like Philadelphia Eagles corner, Darius Slay, who was a three time pro bowler himself. He made Jacoby Meyers tweeting in part eight picks and didn't make the Pro Bowl. Wow.

And Chris HOGAN, some of the linemen the defense, Matthew Slater, of course, being a longtime special teams, captain I mean this locker room now has a large group of core of guys that are decorated with two and three Super Bowl rings, which is really impressive. So it's not just Tom Brady. Bill Belichick though. They ended up getting the bulk of the attention, of course, because they are coach and quarterback Julian edleman become one of those guys who makes a killing in the playoffs. He is Tom Brady security blanket. They have such a chemistry in a rapport. They're like an old married couple. They can finish each other's sentences. They prefer big brother and younger brother and obviously to have the journey for the patriots this season. Culminate with not just a Super Bowl win, the MVP for edleman, unexpected and awesome. As you can imagine. I think we're all feeling pretty happy and probably a little tired. It was an.

"Play the clip of Matthew Slater. He grew up a Rams fan. I always wondered what that's like. So you grow die for the Rams. I know that I get it. But my point is you sit there and you grow up like a die hard. And then all of a sudden you put a different uniform on is there a party? That's kind of like not really a did you see? I know we talked about this last week. Jared Goff TUs if he saw the Ramat video I didn't see the revenue from the one thousand nine hundred six Rams they were trying to do their own Super Bowl shuffle. A it was just ridiculous. Just ridiculous. Who was it? Was it was it? Jackie slater. Yes. As playing a saxophone full uniform. And they were dancing around all in in sync was all choreographed.

"I heard you laugh when our buddy Scott Zolak referred to the patriots are turning to the Super Bowl is America's worst nightmare. Isn't it weird that there's such hatred of of greatness in team sport? But like collectively golf fans throughout the country and non golf fans are trying to well. Tiger Woods pass. Jack Nicklaus in all time. Major wins like we can all get behind that. But oh God forbid that a football team beyond the verge of extending a run of greatness in front of excellence. River going to see again, we hate that. That's viewed a nightmare. I mean, look, I I keep wondering about this. I understand if you know, you hate Bellichik, you you you think he's a cheater you. You think they'd Brady deflated the footballs? I get it. Okay. But let's just look at one thing right now the last three years when the patriots have won the AFC there is no team under a more blinding spotlight and under the microscope more than the New England Patriots. And just like when it was time in the Deflategate thing when I pointed out when they can't touch the footballs that Tom Brady has the exact same quarterback rating and stats on the road where he can't touch the footballs. You know, once they get to the stadium versus at home. And so I just I just say this. I just say this this strikes me that anybody who's not going to want to see the patriots. Now. That's absolutely totally your prerogative is a fan as a follower, whatever. But anything beyond that. Oh, Brady stinks. Are brady's. A cheater cheater is just ridiculous sour grapes. We are seeing one of the greatest sporting team performances in the history of sports forever. And if you don't like it, if you hate these guys that's one thing, but to not acknowledge the greatness or to always find an excuse why they're winning the fixes in the refs all this stuff. Just shut up just shut up. And we got to move on to the draft. But consider this this'll be four out of five years in the Super Bowl playing into February that takes a physical and mental and emotional tall being the hunted. Every year every team you play wants to measure itself by what it can do against the patriots. You're getting the game from every opponent. You face all the time. And how does not not wear this team down? That's what's amazing to me. The fact that they can continue it when they clearly have the biggest target on their back of any team in the NFL. All right time to put a target on the backs of the unsung heroes coming out of conference championship weekend. As always Peter the rig coin toss, speaking of cheating, the rig coin toss, you get the call it heads or tails. Heads. I'm just like Matthew Slater. That's right sales. Never fails heads never sheds, and Peter it's rigged. Again. I thought it was always tails, but see every once in a while it pops up heads, Peter you get the first pick. In my first pick is Trent Brown, the left tackle the New England Patriots. He's played one hundred and seventy nine snaps. That's a lot of snaps in these playoffs. He has played them against two of the best pass rushers in football. Melvin Ingram of the chargers and d Ford of the chiefs Mike one hundred seventy nine snaps. No quarterback sacks allowed no quarterback hits allowed two quarterback pressures Trent Brown a gigantic presence and not just because of his size for the New England Patriots. And you know, Peter, you could look at really anyone on that offensive line, and whether it's David Andrews, whether it's Marcus cannon any of those guys because that offensive line has been able to withstand tremendous pressure. So far in the postseason. You've got Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram. They shut them down. You've got the chiefs front seven that was able to wreak havoc on Andrew luck. They shut them. Down and they're gonna have their biggest test of their careers because we know what the formulas for beating the patriots. It's getting pressure up the middle. And there's no one who can do it like Aaron Donald and and that's the guy they're going to have to face next. But if they continue what they've said across the board tackled attack. Oh and with the interior offensive line so critical that that offensive line has been spectacular. So far this postseason helps when Tom Brady gets rid of the football quickly. But the offensive line has done its job. I'm going to start in the NFC game. And I gotta give some credit to a guy that I look I I'm torn here. You know, what let me just take gronk? I'll wait for the NFC. Rob gronkowski was a participant in ninety seven snaps on Sunday. The patriots had ninety seven snaps. That's the most thing that had since two thousand one in gronk was out there for all of them. He was blocking and even though his numbers weren't the old grog like one hundred plus and multiple touchdowns. He had. Nearly eighty receiving yards. He had to key third down catches in the fourth quarter. And then again in overtime and at a time when we have written him off as washed up and all and slow and disinterested and not happy and on his way out the door. He put together a great performance, and I'm torn with him because he's never a guy that you think would be unsung. But because he has been so diminished this year, he is a guy that we easily forget, and I think he deserves a lot of praise for what he did on Sunday. You know, I I would love to give it to my number two pick to Greg's airline. But I believe he's been sung. So. That field goal. Mike that fifty eight yard field goal to propel a franchise to the Super Bowl. That field goal would have been good from seventy yards. That was an incredible kick under the circumstances. And I asked him about it after the game. And he said to me, I don't care if I make it by yard or by an inch. It doesn't matter. I never think of that stuff. Well, Greg's airline you should think of it. That's one of the best kicks in NFL history. Given the pressure. I don't care if it's in a dome given the pressure given the environment. He it's straight down the middle. It's like hitting a birdie putt in the masters from sixty yards or sixty feet or whatever the measurement is. It was unbelievable. But because he's been sung I'll stay away from him. And I'll give it to Andrew Whitworth one hundred and forty five snaps in the play offs not to reprieve. My Trent Brown thinking hundred and forty five snaps in the playoffs. No sacks allowed no hits allowed. No pressures allowed. Andrew Whitworth is one. One of the best free agent signings in NFL history. And I want to say one thing about Greg's airline. I remember when he was a rookie in two thousand twelve he had been drafted the same year as Blair Walsh. And they both came in and instantly tore up the NFL routinely hitting fifty yard field goals. And and there was a talk about one of them being rookie of the year, potentially. And what would it be? Would it be offensive would would it be defensive? I remember having that conversation with you. I don't know. But both guys were having a great year Zor line still going strong, and you're right to clutch kicks and of regulation and in overtime propel. The Rams I'm going to stay with the Rams, and I want to give some credit the Josh Reynolds because with Cooper Cup gone, and he's been gone for a couple of months now with a tornado Seattle. It's Brandin cooks, and it's Robert woods. And they need a third guy to step up from time to time and quietly. Josh Reynolds helped the Rams in key spots on Sunday. Four catches for seventy four yards. And also another sixteen yards on one rushing attempt. That's ninety total yards. He had the second. Most receiving yards for the Rams that day for an offense that rely. Upon guys to run routes and catch passes Reynolds has been doing it. Not a household name. Not a guy that's going to get a lot of notoriety your attention, and I could see him showing up in the Super Bowl and scoring touchdown or two and people are still say who's Josh Reynolds. But that that's kind of his lot in life with the Rams. And I think we need to start noticing that he's become a key contributor to that offense. Especially as I said without Cooper Cup there. Mike, my third and last pick is going to go to somebody who came to the patriots in one of those weird trades. You're seeing now, you know, how a team will trade for a player, and they'll also get say a seventh round pick, and they'll trade a sixth round pick in return. You say that's almost a worthless. Trade swapping sixth and seventh rounders and getting a guy. Well, the New England Patriots in two thousand sixteen did one of these trades. They traded a sixth round pick to Detroit. And got Kyle van noy and a seventh round pick in return. In other words might in the two thousand seventeen draft they dropped down twenty four spots. And in return. They got a guy who in the AFC championship game this year against the most allusive quarterback in football sacked Patrick Mahomes for fourteen and ten yards in the first half alone. Stripped them led the patriots in tackles for the game. And to me was the biggest defensive factor on the field for the patriots. Do not forget Kyle van noy and how to account for them in the Super Bowl. He was a monster. A quiet monster in the AFC championship game. I need a ruling from stats on this one. I agree with yours. I I don't know. What counts is sung and unsung. Because I could make the case for Rex Burkhead being completely and totally. Young sung on Sunday. The guy scoring. Give you permission. Okay. Permission to use them. Yeah. A put the patriots ahead with a touchdown late in regulation and he scores the touchdown. And it's like, yeah. Tom brady. It's like no Brexit touchdown in overtime touchdown. Yeah. Tom Brady Rex Burkhead. He's scored the two most important touchdowns of the game for the New England Patriots. And it's like, it's an afterthought. So Rex Burkhead rounds out the draft for me. All right. Let's summarize who we have here on the unsung hero drafter conference championship weekend. Peter has Trent Brown. Andrew whitworth. How van noy I've got gronk Josh Reynolds. And Rex Burkhead will for that up on Twitter and get your Mike, Mike. Let me interject let me interject this. Let me interject this we leave Damian Williams off of this list. And all he did was scored three touchdowns in the fourth quarter of a championship game. So we should both put Damian Williams with an asterisk on this because he was great down the stretch for the chiefs a Peter. I like guys who win. Oh..
