Aaron Rodgers flat-out said he liked them a little underinflated and no one batted an eyelash.
Yup, at 28-3 my attitude was I'm going dark on all things sports related on the radio, on the internet and in print for a week, now I'm going to soak it all in and enjoy every second of it. Can't wait to hear Carlton from Norwell tomorrow; wonder if that sackless troll will have the balls to call in and take his medicine.....................I thought I wouldn't be able to listen to sports talk radio for a few weeks. The listening will be sweet from here. Although I expect it'll be WEEI for the drive home most of this week.
I was sober as a judge and I can confirm your recollection. He harped on Blount (surprise surprise), including questioning why it wasn't him carrying in the winning TD. But more than talking about what went wrong in the first half, he seemed to want to focus more on how Atlanta lost the game rather than how the Patriots won it. Granted, it's probably 50/50 in terms of assigning responsibility, but the Patriots post-game show doesn't seem like the spot to be de-emphasizing what the Patriots did. Save that for the radio show when you have hours and hours to fill before pitchers and catchers report.I was hammered when I made that post about Felger in the post-game on CSNNE and I don't even remember making it. He's actually typically pretty good in situations like this, but I thought last night he looked miserable on the post-game and spent way too much time talking about what went wrong rather than the comeback, but it could be the scotch is clouding my recollection of how it went down.
Even Skip Bayless has an off switch from his trolling. That's the difference between him and Felger. Felger isn't entertaining because he makes controversial statements about Boston Sports Teams he's only entertaining when those teams win so you can hear his shtick about how he grew up in Milwaukee. Makes you wonder if Felger is really that big of a douche when it comes to the Boston Sports scene.Felger is insufferable in the post-game. Fuck him,
Agreed. I wish they would go off on something like Marbleheader wrote. You had to expect the LGBT stuff from Felger though. He's been riding that train for 3 years.Being pretty reasonable so far. Giving credit to the Pats while also saying the Falcons coughed it up. Outright fawning over Brady.....Mazz: "what he did in the 4th quarter and OT was stupid. Absolutely stupid. I loved Montana, but he's not like this guy" Felger: "Nobody is like this guy"
And taking shots at LGBT as well.
Really? What happened?oh wow, Felger tells his story how he was popped on the nose at the Barstool party Friday night...didn't notice him looking bad on TV Saturday/Sunday
part of the story I hear was that some young guys "17 year olds" at the party popped him...he said he didn't think it was intentionalReally? What happened?
Wow. Honestly, I can't imagine being that mad* at someone for something they said about an organization that I'm not apart of.
* I guess if I was young and drunk, I could be that angry.
Yet you manage to sound worse than he does.CBS evening news (wife watches it) just did story on Pats and Bostons success and they have a clip Of Felger and Mazz... with the most fucking retarded caller they have
Fucking Carlton from Norwell, sometimes I wonder what would happen if I heard that voice in a bar or supermarket
I don't like Carlton, either, but I thought he screamed a funny line as he capitulated, "... ATLANTA FAILED TO DRIVE A STAKE THROUGH THE HEART OF THE SOULLESS DEMONS PLAYING FOR BELICHICK!..."...

I liked the part where he was looking for a bridge to jump off of as he sounded like a broken man and Mazz quipped; "I know a volcano you can jump into"............................fuck that guy sideways, the fact that this win broke him makes it all the more sweeter.I don't like Carlton, either, but I thought he screamed a funny line as he capitulated, "...

so hockey ops trust their PR department on communication strategy after firing Claude, but not on day-to-day media relations? got it...makes sense to meI'm sure you guys are aware, but Neely used to do weekly interviews last year with F&M. Each week would get increasingly more uncomfortable and ended with Neely getting pissed and dropping an F-bomb on the air. Thursday's interview was the first this season.
The problem is that I think he takes the questions too personally. He needs to learn how to come up with standard corporate responses like Farrell does. Or he can just grunt and give limited answers like Belichick. But you get the sense Neely actually lost sleep fretting over the interviews.
I don't know, that's probably why Neely said to Felger that he doesn't think anyone should "have" to do radio interviews. He probably figures that is the PR departments job. Whether you agree or not, it was obvious during the season last year that Neely really let the questions get to him as the season went downhill.so hockey ops trust their PR department on communication strategy after firing Claude, but not on day-to-day media relations? got it...makes sense to me
