Welcome fifty some local Super Bowl coverage this morning they Geary here. In studio as we go he quit two hours here. Prepping you for network coverage of Super Bowl 51. But as it is a quick. Quick two hours quick here and there boom boom in and out. We've got some good stuff for you this morning I've got to I've got interview coming up at 1230 with Packers punter Jake jumped. Who is a former frontier alumni like myself Jake played two years before my senior year so when I was a sophomore in high school played. At frontier and his story is sort of unlike really any other you might have heard. Just. Unbelievable path. On to greatness in getting to the NFL so we'll talk with him at 1230. And I'm excited to do that as a as a mention him going to same school as me. And it's a just always kind of cool to see people. He's he's as successful as Jake has bent and in the position he's bad and I'm over the past year and as I mentioned I'll go through story a little bit later because it is really kind of an unbelievable story I was kind of going through with Derek in it almost sounded like I needed. To write a novel. Just over a kind of a four or five year span of ups and downs and it's quite a story and I'm excited to share with everyone. Coming up here in the next half hour. Make Erie here Derrick Cramer also along side with me this morning it's up pregame meeting your pregame. Four Super Bowl 51 no dog I heard you like pre game so they're pretty good too and we do in pregame in of the pregame. Up every actually yet technically it's pregame pregame pregame yes 'cause I'm going to be on the board for this for the first part no recover network and then. And then someone else comes in to do the second part of pregame coverage from network so this is the pregame to the pre game of your pre game. For Super Bowl Sunday. I hope you know dog I heard you like pre gaming consumer yet because here we go and you know there's a lot of interest in things. To talk about it Super Bowl Sunday no more interesting obviously then the potential ball the matchup between Matt Ryan. Who's the other cornerback in this game sir Tom Brady. May be considered one of maybe the best or one of the best if he's not one he's one aid going for his fifth Super Bowl title. In his seventh Super Bowl appearance cracked. Yeah I think I think that's correct that is science more wins this is seven. Good lord of lords seven the Super Bowl make it appearances. Before the last time the bills and he made that play a girl. I didn't mean to to make it depressing this morning I just wanted to throw some facts afternoon. That is technically the Internet it's nine technically it is it is after I mean it's it's. That is technically is three minutes after noon so Derek yesterday we talked to a couple folks had some pics yesterday and it kind of did seem to be a little bit split. Between. People taking the falcons of people taking the featured. I am interested at least to know why people would even consider betting against Albert. Well I mean there's there's a different assessment of reasons and it's not that it's too far out there. To pick the falcons I don't think that it's too far out there I think it's not like you know. I mean I hope we don't end up with one of those 52 to ten tiny games right but it doesn't look like that's going to be the case. Give two very good offenses. The falcons have been in shoot out games all season. So they're very bold prepared. For having to deal with the defense not helping them today's quick. Not a Super Bowl note this is a more local tastes. Bob McKenzie just tweets out that national put the aircraft on waivers. Social events that would Lou what you will that's two programs yeah I expect him to resent also expects amber to put him. Amble. Out of thought he would put a plea agreement that claim in for frank brought. Or he 123 year old maple leaf cleared waivers while so. Players are clearing waivers and I really still think that a lot of that has to do with the expansion draft enough about hockey and about hockey but we had a definite two giving note. As do aircraft former fourth line center they are in need and fourth lines and that's for sure actually be summers' comments after Toronto clearly. Yeah. So we'll have a hall of fame class talk about Derek and awful lot of controversy surrounding this elections specifically. Maybe not the selection themselves book indicted did not get selected. The guy that was mean in the final hand. Rollins former Buffalo Bill only played one season buffalo but. Interestingly enough Derek. I minicamp that. I agree that he is potentially at some point he hall of fame receiver but you look at guys like Andre reed who waited a long time to get. Did and I think Steve tasker is. More and more fortified hall of Famer and TERRELL OWENS is in my mind. But Terrell Owens. He has us. The easiest. Argument for which is he second all time in yards seat it's a pretty easy shut it's open and shut case. This looks like it is all about. You act like a jerk. Even on the field. It looks like he's being punished for his antics. I don't know it does seem like they did a little political to me it doesn't it's night and does it doesn't seem like it looks like the fact that two years now. Have gone he's not there first down I can understand 'cause sometimes wide receivers have a very hard time getting in in general. But this is not your standard would like a Tim Brown are Andre reed or Chris Carter. He's got the numbers to back it up. So. I don't know what kind of pettiness is being used here. But it seems to be a little on the UI I thought they were just gonna make him waiting year make that the punishment. And then they only talk a bottom for like thirty minutes and then move on an expert next person so. It like Jerry Jones made the hall of fame. Do we've got. It's one of those things where. You look at a guy you look at a career in Rawlins as you mentioned second receiving yards correct yes. Doesn't have a Super Bowl and may be that has something to do with it but when you look at it. From. I guess an outside perspective and you look at his only super Super Bowl appearance. Was with Philadelphia in 2009. And he bald now where is that was at the here on I think was oaks or six and then seven a guy. The years you don't you don't you don't doubt he came back from a broken leg. In balled up that game. If the if the Eagles total one he would have been MVP of visible no doubt doubt. Do you think though that him not having that Super Bowl now now no because Jason Taylor made has Jason Taylor even played in a suitable. Here's my thing too about. I think super bulls really can only be measured. If you wanna use Super Bowls as like gave way to. Make a point for or against someone then I think you can really only make that argument against quarterbacks and maybe. Maybe a kicker. If that kicker has won multiple Super Bowls with game when he kicks or lost Super Bowls. With gaming XT don't mean I feel like Super Bowls can really only be used for or against players. When you're looking at the at the quarterback position or if you have one of these historical guys which by the way that he even pick anybody from that. Now they I think that side safety Kenny Easley. Rocket and yes that's that's I don't the historical one there are other. It's a questionable group because you look at a guy like Jason Taylor who I don't necessarily think is a first ballot hall of Famer home. John you bring I don't love job lynch but I think he's batter I think matter I think he's a better candidate for first belt often don't think either differs ballot. Jason Taylor for now but I'd seen it yet our case. Four because the hall of fame class and say hey Jason Taylor dies I think I'll tease. No no brainer on LaDainian Tomlinson had one of the most prolific seasons NFL history on the Alley deputies wanted to more consistent. Players in public this debt. With Ian Tomlinson. Started his career finished it made the made the hall of fame before the bills last minute left. And that's something else while you know it's up and off the unfortunate thing for Tomlinson also is you know and he never gotten appearance and who blind. By Rhett again it's a very inconsistent argument using Super Bowls against someone's hall of fame thoughts there. You know. Should be open this conversation option Terrell Owens be in the hall fame or eagle 30550. I think so industrial but if you wanted to be fighting to to fight fifty I'll still obviously where we're previewing Super Bowl 51 here today this afternoon too but there's a lot to talk about today. On strictly for it is being a Sunday. As I mentioned. The the matchups I think are going to be interest in today we labeled a few match up as ones that were going to be talking about a little bit this afternoon. But also kind of paying attention to during the game. One I think is maybe something going a little bit. Analysts on talked about but it wasn't something that was high and people's lists all week until yesterday when it came out that Alex Mack the starting center for the Atlanta Falcons. Is suffering from a broken fifty. And we'll be complaining. With that injury most. I think I heard it was. And somebody and he is canned talking about how in most cases this is a six to seven week injury. I believe it's the same injury that air would sustained. Against the Seattle Seahawks a cost and the rest of his season yet. This kind of goes to show you how much this game means to not only players but how much it means to these teams obviously you only. The patriots are sort of eighty anomaly in this rule where when you get to the Super Bowl it's you may never get there again especially in a and a again another anomaly bradys bend to the Super Bowl seven times. How many other players conceded bend their more than once. Very few up player's consent in addition Manning has a hard time with right and and you look at it and it's one of those things where Alex Mack I. It's this kind of goes to show you there are a lot of issues with. I wanna say he's being forced to play because they don't think he is being for forced to play I think he's playing because he realizes that this. This guy that played for the browns for the beginning of his career okay. This is the guy that hasn't had a lot of sustained success over the course of his career so him getting an opportunity to play in the Super Bowl. I think it's pretty awesome that he's gonna go up or take a pain shot it's gonna be interesting to see the how effective he ultimately is. Especially because of that offense you're gonna see a lot of zone blocking schemes he's gonna be asked to get to the second level. And get to the linebacker level and try to make blocks there and that can be difficult when your ass to move. Going full speed the week of practice is one thing when you're doing walk throughs you go half speed with no pads. It's a totally other level when guys are rolled around on the ground that's another thing I think is gonna be really important days. Can he stand his feet all game because if he gets rolled up on. It could and quickly for Alex Mack and I think that would really derail a lot of the game plan for the falcons just because of how good and what he means that offensive line and I mean. You look at the falcons and and I said yes field but it really. Elaborate on my thought about it but how close of teams these two as I mean the falcons in the bills are. From each other the very similarly built teams and when you look at it. They went the falcons went from one of them. Middle of the pack offense as last year to giving Alex Mack and having the one of the best date they also got other guys as while they added. Was left tackle at the Jake. The old Michigan left tackle Jake Long take long look at a Jake Long. Not funny we got to clunkers is Chris Long and today we do and it's just an interesting. Would you look at this from an outside angle you look and you think man. Alex Mack means so much to this team if they were to go with out him in this game how much when it impacted and maybe it does. Because he's just a senator but. The center is essentially the quarterback for property line typically he's making all the calls all the blocking up front. So it's interesting to kind of look at when you think about it in this aspect is how important is an offensive linemen to the success of the best team best offense in the league and I think kids. His role in that offense is extremely vital to their success especially their running game but when you think about it too and in this is always going to be G. A key to success against Tom Brady is can you get pressure up the middle. Because. You can to pressure from the outside on Brady but typically he can step up and make throws the the way that you beat Tom Brady and I think. The giants proved it time and time again in Natick other teams that have made Brady struggled when he rarely struggles it was because teams were able to get to Brady. With a four man rush but in the middle said he has no where to step up because teams know. And an advocate at this point his career pretty obvious that once Tom Brady is forced off his spot he's forced kind of move. From left or right. That's where he becomes a little bit and accurate he becomes a bit of a normal quarterback if if that's believable or all but a little bit more of a a civilian back there when he has to move around and throw on the run when he can sit back in the pocket and a spot. And you can't move and he's the deadliest quarterback in NFL history help secure zone help pick your man to man defense apart it doesn't matter. Toby Q if you can't get too but I think the pressure isn't just a pressure. Getting in from the outside with your defense events it it really is about giving him pressure up the middle with a form and rushed out a cigarette to frozen. For some blitzes in there as well but I think if there's any sort of defense out there now. When you look at Atlanta's defense or not. Blown away by the talent or the success of their defense they're a middle of the pack defense. But what you what you do walk away from it what you are impressed about Atlanta's defense. Is there speed especially on the outside they can keep up with just about any team. In the league speed wise they can also dipped after you upfront I mean Vick Beasley obviously goes is is the most talked about passed for from the team remember. They've got off rush Dwight Freeney and the other side coming in on third downs too like free it obviously does point to Kurt is a three down own. Wind and he's not coming in he's not running paddling for several different spin if he can still dip and spin on third down he's gonna play a role in this game in trying to get pressure Brady. But Beck at a gets up my point on the whole elks Mac situation his matchup today as much as it is against the patriots defensive line. It really is up against how effective he can be with the injury that he has which at this point it's been reported to be broken fit. The next matchup obviously we're going to be looking at. Is one that I think a lot of people are excited about I think the matchup that's the sexiest things case the forty go there you're with Alex Mack. The falcons are the only team this season to have their entire offensive line play all. Sixteen it was shooting games and playoff games together. So this injury you may have. To do a lot more chemistry chemistry. If they have to have a senators coming in in reserve in I think you really look at that and end. The comparison that I draw between the falcons and bills is. Look hope for the falcons defense was last year Dan Quinn in his first year and really struggle to get that unit together they lose Trufant. I think a few games I think maybe even we want did not at all it was like it was it was a couple weeks in in this it was early go. Arafat is the most underrated corners in the league yet we're talking is just easily their best defensive player. OK here is he's been cast for that it in and really they are pretty pedestrian up until about weeks operate. It was really after weeks seven or eight where this Atlanta Falcons defense really started playing well as a unit. Very defensive speed is probably the most impressive part of their team. And at there unit anyways their their speed they're young they're quick they can move and they can hit. And I don't think when you look at that unit it's very much different last year than the bills it was this year. Yeah I think they they act play makers lecture that defense in it hurt them and it took about a lot of games quite frankly this year. They're defense is filled mostly with young rookies or second year players yes and you could see it. Keon mule. Looks like he was one of the more underrated players that way in the first round like people thought that that was a bit of a reach. Deion Jones being great. For this Atlanta defense in the middle of the defense at the linebacker position Jalen Collins is another guy he's been filling in. And admirably at corner after the absence of destined to five. This is a team that really does have. Some talent on I would say outside of the defensive line they've picked Beasley obviously led the league in sacks. You know put that defensive line. It's that's a group of grizzled veterans you've got the likes of Brooks reed a dream Claiborne Tyson Jackson grated share. And Jonathan Babbitt. And then there's Dwight Freeney. Where it's been nice. It's a group that they've sort of used free agency to build. And then they built through the drafts in their secondary at the linebacker position I mean when you think about Atlanta I mean think about Sean Weatherspoon and how. Good he was the first do you eat three years of his career that really struggled with injuries and I believe he came back and played it is he not. Still a starting on their defense no he's not he's not even these other us knives on the roster but. Yeah you look in the audit. Had a nice group of linebackers we've got that Beasley yeah on Jones Peter but I mean Paul wall or. Moral. He's actually very underrated guy in the middle of yellow well. This young group it's a very young group they use a lot of rotation. They try to keep as many fresh legs in it's possible. And again if you can get four on Brady without having to send a blitz. You might have a good shot here young Neil has been fantastic this season after for Atlanta. I mean the guy had 72 tackles. My. Right now I get to vote my point about how the similarities between them and the bills comes in is is this is where comes in for me. Is think about where their defense was last year. It wasn't gut it was hectic or the offense was last year how she and enhance first year. People were talking about washing and hand and Matt Ryan just aren't getting along date that the scheme it doesn't fit. Ryan isn't playing well yet a career high choosing a career high internal worst. Everyone says how much does not work out you can tell me they started the season hot and that they finished it. Tara their offense was bad their defense was bad they were turning the ball over. And that they decide to bring back Shanahan in in his second year she had a hand obviously Matt Ryan did. There were the best office may be able to one of the biggest things with Matt Ryan is he cleaned up his offensively his instructor in the red zone it. It was particularly in the red is a great point the decision making in the red zone was. A truck why did he was throwing elbow up suitable commits turnovers came in the reds and yet the falcons started off six in oaks. Standing shot for shot with Carolina Panthers last year. And then they hailed speak. It was bad and a lot of it had to do with Matt Ryan meeting critical errors in the reds and he cleaned that up and now you're looking at a offense that. As you said it rattles some franchise potentially the best office of all time but when I look at it too. You look at Tyrod Taylor this is a guide it's going potentially going into his third season with his third different offensive coordinator. Is much as we made fun of continuity. On I think it is super important and I think this is a perfect example this Atlanta Falcons team is. Obviously there was no question they were gonna wired and quit after his first season. However there was a lot of rumblings that hit machining and Ryan Matt Wright and yet we're talking there was rumors that they might move from Matt Ryan and try to draft accord record rebuilt. Instead they keep Ryan. They give him in a second your cheating and system now she and hands the most coveted had coaching candidate is gonna go out of that is that he's gonna sign as soon as tomorrow. With San Francisco. That Matt Ryan wins an NFL MVP award offensive player of the year war is represented at a scene the Super Bowl so we just kind of goes to show you that. Is much as you want to pull the trigger quickly now Atlanta started just as hot. It this year is that it last year. A taper off towards the middle and it looked like that the mayor of a get was all here we go again the falcons are hot. And then they go and that mid season losing streak where it puts himself or play up is doubled this year. There was no Carolina Panthers. The Buccaneers tailed off at the end. Safety seat and it still is the c.'s defense of this team was able to figured out towards that the season and really get on a hot streak going into the play out. A similar hot streak that we saw Green Bay get. Now I am not get easier compare Matt Ryan's quarterbacking ability especially through the or Tyrod Taylor but what I'm saying is. There interesting teams to compare because there are a lot of similarities with the youth. And the speed on defense where I think right now the bill's lack depth speed and I think they can. Replenish that team's speed and the defense has had a ball in this year's draft. Just like the falcons did the falcons defense is filled with not only first round picks but second third fourth round picks that are contributing. There rookie season and did a lot ons one of them are a lot better. Has two goal. To be be attributed to lop a lot of its been good attributed to just the draft. And I think this year it's more important for event ever for the bills to draft well trap for speed on the defense side of the ball. It may be continue to build offensively with what they had slasher with Tyrod Taylor at the quarterback position it'll three. 055188552. But it's also. Derek I saw it'll list it's on USA today. About the top fifty Super Bowl party foods for quote an epic celebration and may and is it terrible. It's.

Some possible coverage if you're gonna be a good time to bring out I'd I'd I know you're probably busy suitable time but. I wanted to talk a little bit. About not only year your story to hurt you got you but I think ADB kind of a good guy to it to talk about I mean you got really first. Broke tickets to see this Atlanta Falcons offense and on their way to the Super Bowl I mean. You has been one game away from the Super Bowl as well so my first I kind of wanna go through a little bit of of your journey to that game. And obviously a frontier high school alumni. We both went there you graduated a couple of years before I did. Bought you that went on your kind of year your journey to buff state which is to develop local division three football around here than to UB graduated in 2011. Awful football when he twelfth and then you were signed by the browns and 2013 right. And then waved you set up rested when he thirteen. Two stance with Tampa Bay than the jets and then you're out of 2014 Bakken 2015 that's where you spent your entire season with Tampa Bay. For sixteen games you're then claimed off waivers that next year by your current team Green Bay Packers. And I mean that's quite a journey Jake I mean how difficult was it for you. To kind I mean that's a lot of adversity you have to face being know what you're 27 years old now in that short time going through all of that adversity getting to this point. I mean how sweet was it to just kind of take it in and your first NFC divisional game like that to really kind of taken and take in the moment. All in you know incredible feeling is not just all those years of basically getting energy rejected and on you know being released from teens just. Back and forth and you know to stand. Keep driving forward and not or just knocking on the door and sit down longer accept that and I know. You know some came with an. Give me a chance and wanna finally happened last year with Tampa. Just that usually just to be able not how myself that you know finally did it and you know I was such great feeling and you know bill finished that season and beautiful people under my belt and I mean. This past year came and you know again you know release but scooped up right away by Green Day and I mean there's really big Green Bay and that's always. You know that Alec that dream team right you know when you kick a football and just that the tradition and calm you know and I found out that go on there just. Like okay this is you know this is the real thing not so it was just an awesome season and then to be able. All the way up to the NFC championship game effort here with them was. I mean it came and traveled type feeling then especially the week before in the hold L game and you know just. Just being a night that whole post season. Type of environment and you know I was it was such a successful season and would love to make it to this this big game today but you know unfortunately. We are cut short but as a couple of keys and remember. Jake chum here the punter for the green bay Packers and the AT&T hotline talking with me Jake. I mean it had to be interesting being the potter for a team that's quarterback by Aaron Rodgers I mean. They're probably wasn't a lot of opportunities out you know they are sure there were but it's just it's pretty crazy like he said that you get to go to the kind of franchise. That is it's just that the history the Green Bay has you know what's maybe talk a little bit about what it was like to have a guy like Aaron Rodgers is teammate. For a full season. Vietnam that's funny because on played our first game down in Jacksonville I mean everyone thought touched only joking around means like. And I mean he he used to sit around you know he got number twelve plane back there and you know I just cannot laugh in his you know pennant to the time and of course the first fund that I had this season was in the back in the end zone against Jacksonville are like. Are those about in the best thing that's come against green bit there with Green Bay you know and a on. But I mean you know that's did upon as much as I guess. Much that thought really I mean you know I mean just how. Aaron Rodgers just let the plane is scrambling around the pocket and on just what he can do the football and you've seen it first and earning a seat on TV and and I mean like highlights but when you're actually there initiated practiced every single day in on game after game then arms straight out. Rick Down there on the field and expect upon third down. And the kind of in the back your mind you're like Huckabee on on nine and make some reckless play and get the first down key to drive alive and all is just just an awesome experience in your degree guy and you know Turks around a lot in the locker room and on. You know just just a bait and we kid in the team. Especially efficacy in the call Bowden. Throw on the table right on. So Jake I mean I think potentially he's I held in college and held in high school to. Holding for field goal as his likely. The most pressure packed position that nobody really talks about in in football. And in your case in the NFC divisional game against the dale Scott was the number one seed the cowboys playing in cowboy stadium. Okay having to hold for one field goal that you think is ultimately gonna win the game but then I have the cowboys go down the field score touchdowns. Only four era riders to bring you guys back downfield opposition to hold the game winning kick. How hole. What's going through your mind I mean I I know when you're at high school and your counsel obviously it's it's much different to different scenario. There's not as much pressure in that second but. You have to do so much in so little time to put the ball down placed it perfectly and have a kicker obviously ticket and be good but. How much we know what was going through your mind during that kick in in maybe give the people little bit of an idea of just how much pressure that kind of situation brings. Yeah I mean at you know there really think I'd be holding. Potential game winner three time neck and involved but. Yet. Obviously going to be the most memorable. Game ever problem and it on down the line and there's a bigger gains but that was. I guess the thing withholding. You know people really really realize. You know what I feel is. And you're given a lot more on the one year talent that kneeling there monitor and you know just your scouting the defense seekers annual net. Plain and jumping over the line you gotta nature. You know you're gonna get the ball in time for the play clock runs out. Com you know it's just the biggest thing just blocking everything else about your mind he can't be on the ailing back there and unite. Don't drop the ball cut the ball in that heard the saying gotta keep her mind. But I mean it just comes with you know route everything opening practice and you know working with the guys. All snapper Bratton kicker Mason I mean you know. An arcane and Lleyton pre season and no we had to build that a truck with each other get comfortable and it's just you know rep after happen I mean. Armed nation expects me a pat on the civil laces there. Toward the field poston. You know in the exact spot that he expected and LB move smooth rhythm and you know I expect from Brett you know give me laces so I don't really kept in the Bolivar and it's just down to smooth operational and that's what we worked for toward that perfection. I mean it's all timing thing did you not catch but the ball down which relate to that there and prop copper Hilton it just becomes automatic image just mean in my head. I'm when I knew them there this year you kind of have to release blot blocked everything out and just. Treated that actual rep just another rapping on can't put into the game scenario or work yourself up. You don't need that ball for OpenId 64. Big game like that on. Now playing a lot of pressure put it all comes down it just tight handle it in your mind in need again and he just kept. Treat you like it just is another happened you know me and cannot do its job and could do the opera. Jake. The kick itself you know you've got the dueling kickers back and forth yard he had Mason blast at fifty yarder Dallas comes back to respond you line up there once more. What are the feelings when you see Dick kick going. Into the air and you see it as it's about going up right there just the feelings like as it's going out. Her one not doubts known for but you look for the the last kick. Yet Mason's kick yet Mason said he can't kick yeah. The second one around here and he pitted I mean it looked like it was. Note kind of going up the I mean the first when he Crocker on the middle so. I mean we knew that they're gonna call a timeout anyways. So really not just. I'm against snappy and kick it and give them an action practiced it in and when he hit their second one. Just like holding my breath Lumix stated it and just toward the end you know when when that bombing went through I mean down. In I can't fault you know Mason is Alec. Drop down. You know acute not to need a discount crouched down a little bit and in I can't imagine how he felt to be able saint you know ball for the operate. You know it just. Could help ourselves which is like streaming hours just so end up in the moment and just. You know not have to go and overtime and winning a huge game like that in you know I think a lot of people you know did not expect that to be able to poll that often. Taller guys that come like running in the field like and you know just Ghana a major disagreement in excellent the I mean it just kind of like that feeling of relief than. You know just just pure excitement you know form when he hit that Google and that's just the feeling that you know you can never well never be able per did. And that's what they just galloping and you almost gain that is known for revealing. That amazing memory of that you know so stick with it for a long time. Now you mentioned icing the kicker. We have. Mostly at the stations some selective thoughts about ice in the ticker mostly negative. Euro holder ward your thoughts about icing the kicker and how annoying it's it. All I mean we got that the only time. I think it was it has for the Chicago game later in the year and I'm April what we practiced with him who really told each other. No matter what we're snapping the ball Michigan ticket we don't mind it I mean. Not me and at the current and I thought about it but I mean from what just like talking and then. What we have talked about it I mean. It's another practice rapping on it give him a chance to feel what the wind is doing her mean a nose in a dome but. You know just get a feel of note this plant footer in off the turf purchase the whole environment and per month. The only hit that ball before I mean it's just not it's another reps so. We treated as just an good practice reps then I mean you're hit another field though aren't just matches so. I guess we just can't have that mentality of bringing on the notice all the time mount you know it's not in our. But it paid our guy and I mean they just incredible kicker and that's why it's been leaked for so long. And he proved it. So Jake you have as you mentioned you got kind of got a front row seat to see this Atlanta Falcons offense which is. At times been considered maybe one of the most prolific offenses in NFL history and 34 points a game and they really kinda tore up the Green Bay defense at times. In that NFC championship game there obviously represented the NFC in this Super Bowl against may be one of the best quarterbacks of all time Tom Brady. You know. In in your opinion how good is this Atlanta Falcons team and they pose a real threat to this New England Patriots team and potentially winning this game today. Yeah absolutely I mean just to have that at the high powered offense no weapons that they have. I mean it is just ill just seen my phone was open conflict. We just felt like we can stop ominously if we stop them on one play. They just at some else not their sleeves and I mean it's such big play makers on there and now. No Matt Ryan being in the MVP. You know he he proved that he been given an awesome job all season long and I think you know the patriots. Always been that I've are often as well net that are. They'll be able matches and I think it's just going to be if people expect our game if you go right what they feel that way about you know I really think that be the case here. Actually it's just gonna come down to. You know what what defense. Really Nicholas. You know makes more stops. It a picket going to be great game you know. So it definitely has. Everything they need to feel the get the job done. But I mean the sort of the patriots. It's hard to say who's gonna take it all today about. It I expect the bigger picture just just because. Our offices. I Dave and I really appreciate you taking some time out coming out with me this afternoon manager really appreciated I can tell yeah. Just everybody in front your nation how proud we are that. A really could be a better gotta represent frontier. In the NFL and we we do appreciate you coming on and we we look forward freed have a nice long. And a successful career if it's not only Green Bay but for the rest year you're in poker buddy. I really appreciate and I think again for having me not really happy to do it and you know hopefully. Both the Green Bay for alana on a new home you know possible is always be home from a. I Jacque appreciate it buddy and I enjoy your Super Bowl Sunday. Do banks and that right there. AT&T hotline he's the up under for the Green Bay Packers as I mentioned. He what's New York native from frontier high school my old alarm. And I know when you talk about a couple of really influential coaches on that played a big role. And now in Jake's excess heat you can't go about calling out coach privateers and coach Joseph fascia on and and and coach gray and all the coaches the great coaches that put so much time and effort in and helping not only guys like me but the like Jake. I'm the opportunities. On that he got the next level and you really have to. You really have to. Appreciate those kind of guys and in a career when you look at the success of Jake's dad. And was it was great having him on and if you missed any of the interview especially for you local west Yorker's new Frontier Airlines. I'm you can catch the whole interview on WGR fighting. It'll be up there shortly after this first hour. So when we come back we're gonna dive back into this Super Bowl obviously super ball 51 pregame coverage here on WGR. We've got more veterans talk about we've also got some matchups between some pregame Super Bowl foods we have to get to this USA today list which is just a little ridiculous especially if your buffalo native it's not USA today we're not we're bashed in the wrong thing if we see and it's to date owe that to Croatia are USA today I had it is there's an apology diminished there has an apology and maybe I I was really questioning USA today's legitimacy now it's just that today shows. I can do at night to distribute shows and I can OK you know that's. 8030550. If you wanna call and talk about the Super Bowl match up feel free will also talk about that some prop that's today some of the most ridiculous prop bets that will be going on in this game if you're a Vegas guy this is probably year. Your Christmas this in March Madness really are the two best odd days or times to it's been bet your money so we'll talk a little bit about some of the prop that's coming up. And they'll continue our conversation a hall of fame class is well no control and this year wasn't even in the top ten of consideration. Four and a follow players getting inducted in the the NFL hall of fame itself. When we come back as unmentionable talk all all of that all that more right here on WG. He's such a huge part of what we do. In terms of creating explosive plays and you're changing how it defense is gonna defend us so we'll get him involved Assurant proud to great job of format and things and moving him around to get a response to it to make some place and I expect to have retained. Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan there during. The meteorologists. At Super Bowl 51. Houston an energy stadium. This staff this evening we'll call this evening I think access seven. Rain and I'm sure. It's hurt it says six there says 63 but it proud of markets are till seven. You know it's. It's funny that we're talking about a Super Bowl with the patriots that. Doesn't involve Robert house. And technically when you think about. The patriots road to the suitable. Doing so without their best offensive weapon is all that more press I think it also tells you how terrible. And eurocard the rest of the AFC it's. It was horribly mediocre this year it was unfortunate too that lady on bell goes out that injury so early in that AFC championship game it was over after that yet you knew you could have had something there blood on bell who was on. Or. When he came back from suspension. On uses everything that Pittsburgh news and more this year and yeah adamant that he was losses like. I can go to bat I feel safe knowing that you know nothing. One's gonna happen. I go I'll tally in obviously of one matchup to talk about it as we talked about that. Alex Mack match up which releases a personal matchup between him and his injuries how long how effective can he be in this game. But the Britain met the bridge between. Are the Brady between the matchup between Brady and Matt Ryan is is one that I think a lot of people be looking at today as may be. One of the better. Quarterback matchups. In recent memory obviously you go back to the Ben Roethlisberger Aaron Rodgers match up. Indie Super Bowl that that that that Green Bay Packers ultimately ended up winning. That eagle back before that to the Pittsburgh and Arizona. Match separate court order for spent Roethlisberger. And other than at a mean if you think about last year the matchup between. Cam Newton who obviously won the MVP but he's not sure yet and I don't take it away from Cam Newton because is not conventional quarterback but. This is a matchup of kind of really conventional quarterbacks is something you don't get a lot passer first guys that can throw for 5000 yards. In thirty plus touchdowns and I think something that hasn't really gotten a lot of attention this year is the touchdown to interception ratio that's Ivory Coast which is the best in NFL history. Mean twelve games. 28 touchdowns 22 interceptions this year on just an on. Unbelievable season for Tom Brady considering all the drama that went into the season with his fleet gate suspension. I mean is you know. Subsequent. Denial of the suspension and is fighting of the suspension that witch hunts suspension circuit courts and Supreme Court it. We are as a first step away from Supreme Court with the bass and we mentioned to we don't the last thing we want as another. Tom Brady app few tours around too but we got it ain't here we are again as Brady enters in to his seventh. Super Bowl appearance of his career and in what. I think we have to concede at this point the best quarterback more time. Win or loss in this game. It's not necessarily always about winning this game is it is about being here and the tan AFC championship game appearances that he had maybe even the more impressive thing. I'm just getting to the debt that top level year in and year out and it's just such an impressive thing and you look at the other side of the ball with Matt Ryan. A guy who has been up and down his core he's thrown for 4000 yards thirty touchdowns but he also hasn't really done well in the playoffs he's always. He's been kind of known as the choke artist in the playoffs but this year he sounds a lot of critics first ball. Beating a good Green Bay team and going up against to a lot of people thought was a quarterback that couldn't be stopped and Aaron Rodgers well it turned out it was now Ryan couldn't be stopped. And that game went down is maybe the most. It's impressive victory of the playoffs so far. Is putting the will open that they put on the Green Bay Packers Yeltsin took on the Seahawks which isn't usually appointed defense but with little after. Atlanta carved up without yes remember that without Earl Thomas that got without Earl Thomas let the same time he's still cancer at least on rich richer and you still had. All those sorts of players their Bruce. Reserve and now he's. No he's rated on sorry about that shoppers Irvin a but Michael Bennett body Wagner. They have players still have a lot of great players. And Atlanta. Showed them that they were not. Going to be instead of all I also think it's funny too that. What I'm hoping happens because I'm just generally not a patriot fan welcome Butler tweet out I think it was almost two years ago now that. All he wants to do is go up one on one against to a Jones while he's gonna get his wish today. And we'll see how it turns out forehand and the to England patriots trying to stop will be Jones but. If you know Bill Belichick you can probably guess that. It'll be neat. Not great program. Belichick knows it here's Belichick's good at taking away your the thing you do best and when they take away Julio Jones is it. Gonna be Taylor Gabriel Mohammed says new now running game Beckett over com. What I think Bill Belichick does best and as I mentioned it's taking away the best part of your offense can you come back and and respond that'll be the I think one of the keys to today's game. 8030 fight if you want Tripoli fight you two to 550 will bring you local super ball covered for the next hour. 2 PM eastern is when the Westwood One coverage of Super Bowl 51 kicks off right here on WGR 550 so that's following meet all the another hour here are gonna get to some of the prop. That's for the Super Bowl were also gonna take a look at the line. And we will go over our picks again and we also are gonna take a look. At I know for me I will be playing a a one day fantasy. Sport game for this evening's game and will be putting up a fan duel for this game and it gets. This is I think the most skill comes in. When you have to play when there's only two teams involved you can pick only players from two teams. It becomes a little bit more skilled than luck when you're choosing players. In that aspect with with limited. Pools of players she's so go through that at gala here coming up here in the next hour. So join us as I mentioned the numbers to call it a 30551 Tripoli by fifty to five if you're listening to extended Super Bowl 51 pregame coverage right here on WG. The bills offense of the nineties and the rams offense Wentworth Kurt Warner and and Marshall Faulk who put put that in a pot that's really what via the falcons are right now very explosive. No Matt Ryan has. You took an a team on his shoulders they got a great receiver Julio. Among Thompson who's playing great and I think he was real big factor in the playoffs this year. That's former bills receiver Andre reed hall thing receiver. Andre Reid talking about this evening's Super Bowl match up which features. The Atlanta Falcons Matt Ryan and the New England Patriots and Tom Brady. We did talk about some matchups to look forward to today but. We we've just kind of scratched the surface of some of the great question are the great match ups that will see in this game. That includes as we mentioned Julio Jones and Malcolm Butler but I think as we've kind of talked. They're there is one matchup that I think kind of trumps all the rest. And that is the Atlanta Falcons pass rush specifically the front four. For the offensive line at New England Patriots and just how important it's going to be for the success of the falcons if they have reservations when this game. Stopping Tom Brady it has to be done by rushing for it's difficult to blitz and because you leave. Your defensive backs a young secondary at that vulnerable for Tom Brady to pick apart yeah and Brian tell that. Was on with us on sports such Saturday yesterday in Ryan and I were really keying in on this sort of thing where. We think that the falcons do have the capability of making that half of rushing four and getting to Tom Brady in having some. Quality disruption I mean you saw Houston do it. But they have one of the deepest pass rush cores in the leak right without their best that gap and furthermore though Atlanta they do you have the NFL sack leader. They do have Dwight Freeney who still can do some things on a limited basis for so if they can get to Tom Brady it is like you said. Probably the difference Erica meeker because. Even a normal course no quarterback can deal with pressure constantly in your face disrupt your rhythm. And that is how the giants managed to go to you know against principles. Uninteresting question right past you on Twitter from not there and cica. He says would you root for the patriots to win today if Tom Brady or promised to retire after the game I would sell my soul with a double that was the case then I also realize that the football double might be Bill Belichick. So I'm in and not go that. I've got it back gonna say I'm selling my soul to double because properties crew eventually will be over. But I'll tell you this much if it came down to the fact that I embrace that he's gonna retire after a win I mean absolutely. I would root for the patriots. Wholeheartedly and have no problem. If that I watched Tom Brady one point oh yeah and it only is that bit late. That's the only reason I'm OK with this boy. Yeah I've seen having seen him. Do what he does. On its constant basis releases. Especially in off when most frustrating things in dealer. I guess us in the us on Twitter that I think is brings us to where we need to really kind of talk about. This list of foods for the suitable. Qaeda the organization you solve our reach read in you know. He the favorite party guest this Super Bowl Sunday make these awesome hash tag begin cauliflower wings. Yeah you know why it first of all first. I'm not hosting a party are not going to party and we have plans the Super Bowl Sunday I'm gonna kind of hang lay low. Do some writing and I just am thinking about if I word host a party and ask somebody to bring food or if I was going to a party that had more like a potluck where people were gonna bring food. Is somebody brought votes. I don't know that I could still be friends with that person but. I mean that's seriously. How dare you. First of all it in bad Albright who is. It affection between gonna sought from he's. Easiest and cohost Diane and fees on Yahoo! and fox spent Albright. History is perfect his reaction to it was perfect he said cauliflower is the food that my food eats. And I think that's just a perfect that's a perfect way to respond to such a horrible. Horrible suggestion by Pete I'd get a year of protection of animals in you don't wanna see animals get. Chicken wings. Hi all this is column wings. You're you're just fell. You know no to quote Randy Jackson yeah. You don't know or lead dog way yet now it. That's going to be you know. Mean. I just adult I'm good. Which people of buffalo eight obviously were known for our food we're known for chicken wings were known for a lot of ethics. I'm curious what are some of the more. Untraditional. Super Bowl platters that people put together. You know I don't peet's is big this time a year but to people really go off for the super bullet did they make. Other than dips but two people go all out an inmate crazy plates in dinners and things for the Super Bowl or is it kind of just a pretty need them. Basic in typical Super Bowl where you just get pizza you'd just give wings you just get. The dip since things like that it's it's. I I don't couple Super Bowl parties I've never actually hosted once so it's. Develop for me to really. Say what I would do because I like and I've never really hosted one before. But I'd be interested to hear. Especially cassette in buffalo where you have some I think some of the better food. Options in buffalo including some of the best pizza some of the best wings around our our we have finally gonna go take down this this. Collapse this collective group of list here from today we might as well yet you know it was a student paying out and that's. You know the one thing I think that bugs me is is I completely agree with their number one choice. Their number one choices is buffalo chicken wings which. Let's just all agree that that's probably the best possible. The best possible choice I had three or Super Bowl party is rage a good way to take to take down the establishment I don't I. Art how ever it but what is going but the rest of the world that they're dots believing that crappy part of the wing off. So with that yes well that's a big around the country like if you go other places. They don't pick clicked. The weird little part off the wing you know it's like eating whole arm. Great question because the picture underneath that the caption says Martha Stewart got the problem this summer we're Martha Stewart so ready. Go to Google Google literally any other picture of a chicken wing. It's probably not but weird little thing sticking out of it. Now but. That's not true okay. But it's close. I guess. What if you go to Chinese restaurant and you get chicken wings like you get the whole thing and I don't know what the little. Extension is I don't know what that is what they Q buffalo for not the right now for not doing Matt. Like who does all right so let's let's carry on here right. It got it right they got chicken wings number one overall good for you ever to walk boldly. I've seen your thoughts on the guacamole I'm not a fan of the block a mole but I know with a big hit at parties I don't like likable on Mecca to kill for that. I love guacamole if you're going to create. Eight need. I guess like it dipping an array of dips. I'll tell you it is not a lot guacamole it's not my number one bit that I'm putting out there for my nano like kind of wonder obviously would be. Chicken ringgit. I think that's. About you but I also a big bet that I assume that it's actually the chicken dip with public chickened. Is third on the list in dips and that's it seems a little wrong you are angry they're bad but whatever three which I think is just. List mismanagement. I mean who's making this list Doug Whaley. Oh well I can I don't know this is Matt Millen man slow cooker chicken chili. For God's sakes not our four. Picks and a blanket. And okay I mean this is not a report territory. Where it. But number five being Clementine the most is like what the hell was that six pizza obviously I think as. Is it mainstay for her for suitable food seven spinach artichoke dip which. I can't say definitely makes my top two list of I dipped 88 chocolate chip. Cookie dough touched down footballs when we're having a Super Bowl party. OK number nine here comes the buffalo chicken that except in the dip picture. They put carrots and celery. How could did it because when you eat chicken wings like you always comes it comes to dip back the blue cheese you know different. This this list is infuriating. On number ten ribs. Eleven baked potato chip which I've never had before but it sounds interest. Number twelve jello shots OK okay okay. This like I would urge you to snack stadium it you know I've never actually seen anybody. Successfully put together snack stadium but wow that actually I got distracted because I'm seeing Rex Ryan on television we're. Now laughing. It should be. Number fourteen on the list loaded not shows that's a crime that should be put up. X fifteen cupcakes okay whenever here's the one that we talked to all of our MS slam this one bad off homemade. Chick McDonald's Mick rib sandwich. Chocolate chip cookie skillet. Seven layer dip which is have to be up. Yes margaritas I don't understand V or two hours in the place of margaritas in a Super Bowl party. Lasagna at twenty what it was not is a great food about making for a Super Bowl party. 241 to tell brownies. It sounds pretty good now Hammond she's sliders. Avocado Fries with salon troll I can even read the other word of weapons of what's. As you mentioned boos he cider. And. Pizza pizza did scribble. Gene that's not pizza that. But no like I'm I'm envisioning those 27. Am unhappy to dip that. Pizza did it should involve pizza science she use some pepperoni is on top of it. And then they may be some bacon yeah peppered in there. And if you're super rear to throw pineapple in which is a crime but right now at all packed those people later. Go to 27 as a budget slow cooked K so how in God's name is caiso 27. That to be a crime in itself the case those 27. You go to 48 in August little thrown off by Katy bacon AKA spiced make him crack a gate. They'd want if they did it wrong. Teddy bacon for meat. Is when you put brown sugar on patent. Nice little karma eyes glaze it's delicious don't knock it the truck OK but 29 goes to onion dip which. You could just say it's should I should dip. But a real it appeared buffalo. French onion dip is far higher on the I. Obviously you could make a case in buffalo the French a that French onion dip is number why I got two buckets in the car way to go to my party. It could make the case of buffalo the progeny dip in there's no question here don't that'll slow cooker bacon Mac and cheese look at sounds pretty. Cheeseburger dip which I've never heard of loaded potato skins should be higher up 32. High or high. Tangerine the most sense suit you're looking at old well first off if this was a draft board. That's a late first round pick your common away with gold with little bloated team used its. On your 33 and it where I am fully. I'm disappointed in your tea I think hang on. Let me let me get this right. This is really this has taken a turn for the worst. Hang out here it is here it is serious. You're ready for us. The dumpster fire that is parmesan cal chips yeah. Chips. It. Super Bowl parties are still hail and she I'm not going to Epperson suitable as a matter note you know what I will go to that persons who wore. Find the bull cow chips knock it over to the ground and then would be. I think instead what I'll do something a little bit more spiteful. Is go to their FaceBook page delete that off my FaceBook. On follow them on Twitter. And then publicly harassed them. Until the next Super Bowl party I would make count should just to continually throw the map a model year believable all you're just throw them back to that person 34. Frito pie which essentially is taco at a bank. Okay yet. Baked brie for number 35. Which is in front of fried pickles which again is a little ridiculous. We get down the list here 38 how appeal Popper dipped which sounds amazing how is at 38. Yeah pulled pork is 39. The a. While. Irish nachos which I've never heard of and I'm Irish at 42 you know who team 43. Routines at 43. Spiked hot chocolate at 45. Many held zone that 46 soft pretzels Orioles and be delicious not 46 just he knows at 48 how the buffalo chicken and. Hot pepper colorful not here you'd get to the bottom all buy dot. Mexican influence bloody Mary's at 49 and fifty. Witasick yeah. That Britney and there's a Margarita an axe to it. Beer is the fiftieth choice. Man. I've got a law. Problems male lock arms with this list. Could not list. But I looked a list thinks this was potentially the worst list I don't come we do fantasy football. We didn't we help people with lists. I'm distraught is what I am I I feel sick I feel queasy. That was such a bad list like but lenders have somebody called out. Pierson fifty. I I am really glad somebody called it up I'm glad that we had an opportunity to bring it up and then properly called out by the way this will be on the man. Unbelievable. This is a. The fifteen like I would. Pissed off about the case like 38 out of Bob about the the most and need margaritas. Injury also had a beer. Beer but using co wrote in the picture hub which is the finest beer and all of the land. There. But. While you just say that. That's hot. Hot ticket might be a hospital lukewarm take it best it's still it okay it's warm it's. It's definitely not is capable. We have some prop bets to go to racket do it this segment where and when we come back to we've got profits to do well you know what since were killing things to me. To go ahead murder the cliche is who. That lets hear all game let's let's get some music behind these cliches because these you're right I think there are some cliches are gonna have to go through as well to I would see prepare. Though though the public. Have to deal with some of the crap that's probably because it's a fox Brett broadcaster Joe Buck and Troy Aikman yet ready. But the fire operate started up transpire Iberia. Some stupid cliches are you're gonna hear all game the patriot way at all. Like we can already have two weeks of this crap quite honestly v.s. These would be better the profit we should probably make their product how many times the quote. Patriot way that I might that might be on the list of profits. And I've got like Ellen I haven't gone through all the next one. Hey did you know Chris Hope and Clinton crossed did you know Chris Hogan played the cross. So the Brady way. And the Chris Hogan the crosstalk. We just got right while Tom Brady. The greatest of all time aiming for ring number five. Yeah here that a lot yeah. Yeah Brady rectified here probably gonna hear Houston we have a problem when something goes wrong now oh is that really out there as a I don't know that's this is my list of cliches are gonna hear all game. And there's actually prop bet as to if it's going to be sent Houston we have a problem. I. I plan on hold hold on to about I was told by a one of my friends on Twitter look part zone. And said. Find yourself some Irish not Joe's real quick because there's the next level stuff. Our jobs that make you look because I had no idea about Irish not those until I read that abomination of a list. That include Irish nachos. I had a beer. It. Yes I did it I'd Irish not just sound amazing I am Irish I like not Joe's but I also Irish like beer. Yeah so. What else. Right while. Atlanta looking to win their first it will ask him to pound junior had a cabinet accused we have a problem I think that's that would likely to be sent a lot about it more than twice yes Chris Hogan. By the cross. Twice just for good measure. It out of food consumed during receivable due not remind you that I'm going to be fat today okay. It's gonna happen it is deathly gonna happen you let it happened I. I'm also interstate I tweeted this out yesterday I believe we've gotten to a point. Were renowned needs free Super Bowl commercials to prepare you for what they're going to do on the Super Bowl commercial during the game. That's a little low point I think in Super Bowl commercials that we need pre Super Bowl commercials yap. Are speeding a Super Bowl commercials another big cliches how much of the spending on Super Bowl commercials this year that's gonna come up. You know that's gonna come up it is and I'll one more for you hated you know Chris Hogan for the cross from. I like the civil commercial talk because. I hate to provoke camera they're gonna compare the ads is back what it was. During Super Bowl one and then they're gonna show you how much it costs now I hate Super Bowl commercials and you know what ticked people I I'm not that Obama gonna hate you for that one actually people really love them. And there's always that one friend at a party that loves to blow commercials so much that they actually annoy you. I did like I think it was last year two years ago was the to read those commercials. Arena is always comes out with a good commercial to read those always those world I think out of the few scales to skills does great. There are some victory commercials but most of them are just worthless. And most these companies are spending millions of dollars for 32 spots. In their back. But maybe this year we'll get some good commercial I doubt it but it's one of my least favorite parts disapproval is all this build up. Of the actual commercials themselves which are just. (%expletive) pour for the most part. Let's talk about to talk about Super Bowl commercials. Obvious civil we're gonna get into next segment and are some of the prop bets and so prop it's a thinker gonna be interest because I if it's meat for Saddam likely gonna make a prop bet on the National Anthem. Because it's always interesting to to do to prop bets with the length. Of the the National Anthem I think this year is country star Luke Bryant. I think is his name and not really a fan of Luke Bryan but we'll see how miserable event. Halftime show lady get guy and Tony back. If you couldn't get anymore of unfit Super Bowl halftime show you just put hang out wait a guy let's talk about the support to share a moment okay. The people at. I was a cigarette called just now odd or were you complaining about it. The surprise of yes I'd just touched on it as like why Tony Bennett Lady Gaga ready. It's because not for you. That's true the games for me the games for you to halftime shows for people that don't really care about the game exactly. And that's really what is I think that people no longer have the right to complain about it because guess what it's not for you. It's four. The Porsche sucker who doesn't watch football that you're bringing with you. Some of you know there. A friend that O'Donnell national football fans not in football they. Your wife girlfriend some might that you know significant other that doesn't watch football. And they're going to have to sit through probably five hours worth of you and football. They get at least a half hour reprieve. It's true that it's not for you. It is and you know what. I understand that sentiment but. You know lady good guy is. She's eight international. Superstar. So she's really probably bringing in those as a match the not to national football fans but the international thing. Who maybe thinks of football as soccer in not a the American football. So. I guess I can get with a heavy we've looked back at some of the historic. I halftime shows maybe that's we got into next segment to some of these some of the better halftime shows I mean some of the ones I remember obviously. You know a few years ago was Tom patty but I patties sold so old at that time is like who cares. It seems like they're always selecting performances for the halftime show. They're like three or four years past their prime of being its actual super lady get guys kind of in the perfect. Try aim for her to let me bring in Tony Bennett who hasn't really been. Relevant name and don't don't be slam that I'm not slamming Tony Bennett he's got the voice of an Angel but. It's just interesting you know like maybe. I like Bruno Mars a look really big interleague Bruno Mars. Katy Perry in in duke left shark mean letters RF shark but. Katy Perry you know whatever I don't know what was the last time there was a really good Super Bowl halftime. Don't say it either. Don't say that Janet Jackson now and Justin Timberlake all I want. I wasn't going to say I was going to say I don't know 'cause I don't watch 'cause not for me yeah I don't watch either so there you go it's it's really kind of a moot point for me I don't care. And it's really that's that's pretty much it I do need to make a public service announcement your real quick as the beginning a lot of calls about this if you won squares in the WGR scores contest. Unfortunately human media are the only ones here at studio right now and we have no idea what's going on with that yeah I five and he's informed here's what I would say my advice is check the site an hour before the game. And see if they've put it up on the web site other than that there's no way that we can help you. And other Mac good luck they'll contact you if you win yet fortunately I'm just not the the squares guide is I refuse to pollsters aren't used to break I don't know how they work. I'm a football dialect fancy football I don't do squares my boss of leather job literally told me you need to buy squares I said. I don't want that. I don't know on there about I know let's look at scores on the break and oversight all Alexis is the beyoncé halftime show that that was probably pretty much. She's you know she does listening. That's like the only really beyoncé is on an oval like a mini used that clip on you for now that's fine. I can sing just as good as the odds again. She just as a superstar husband that wanted that want to turn to supremacy over me all right that's what is really the difference between me and beyoncé that's the real question. I mean a difference. And I'll call you liar. Eight note real fight 5188 fighting to to fight if he doesn't numbers to call extended it Super Bowl 51 pregame coverage here make eerie and dare Kramer alongside. Bringing another half hour of this pregame coverage we're gonna get into some of the prop bets next half hour here are also gonna talk about some of the other one day fantasy football teams you might want to look at some players you might wanna choose for this evening's games. I will certainly be be putting some money in thing and go for this one today. So. Far as we can afford here they solicit your listening to extended pregame coverage super wolf if you want right here on the future. No he's certainly a disciplinarian. And out isn't it great there's no news. Your coach does that for you not have to really do any of those things I can be just like one of those other guys and come yelled at just like everybody else you know but it's nice to feel especially my seventeenth year that I am one of the guys because that's I think ultimately the best thing for our team and you know he certainly. You know it takes the lead and you know we all caught on. Thomas Brady on his. Head coach. William Belichick I I truly wonder what Belichick yells at worry about. It really. What do you really yell at them. Until until it. They're the only thing you know about his. How. I don't know how one steals record from another I don't know. There's. So. How old yellow before I went to breaker talk about some of the prop bets now during the break I was able to kind of take a look at album and they are gloriously ridiculous. And obviously as a as image that I'd imagine Luke Bryan being the not at halftime but the National Anthem singer. For this for the for the to look into it and the first few profits are all about. Luke Bryan I think some of them are pretty good. But there's also a lot of prop bets wanna get to edit thinker sort of ridiculous that I would absolutely put money down. One of them I think is is the two point conversion attempt does either team in this game. Attempted two point conversion. And I think it's a close game I think you actually see it especially if you know somebody kicked two field goals in their end up being got appointed the you'll definitely see two point conversion. But there are just some really interesting ones here that I want to talk about. It also we do want to make mention again Derek said last Portland to break we do not have an neat. Definite details about the WG where squares contest as the bulls gross contest. You can text the text line and ventures lovers here this afternoon would be able to get back you with details about the squares contest. However I've got no details of one the actual squares are released where there released wide the released four when they're released. Because I just I don't do squares and I don't yapping about let's talk. You know what Jeremy. Was mentioning things about this and I I feel like this is the greatest thing that he is set period. People that bring their squares with the new Super Bowl party are jerks. Why because you know what quite frankly we don't yet you know what your friends might be happy that you win but then the next Norton's jealousy or something like that but. Don't don't bring your squares. Yet don't bring your squares here because. I think it's one of those things where. I think. Squares of the most infuriating I don't deal and they're frustrating. We are your fancy football I'm not a math guy also wanna point out not a bad guy. I was always history and social studies guy and when I look at having to remember numbers and that's where it gets it gets sticky for me okay. Let's get to prop that's because there are some terrific one delegate nastier well guess what Scott obviously the National Anthem. The over under for the National Anthem is two minutes nine seconds taking over the under the got a country singer here today. I'm gonna take you over I'm taking you over because he bragged. About making this long. How it was Whitney Houston's one NC in the bill suitable maybe the most iconic. It's those holes because we reward the true in man she really killed that it will Luke Bryan be wearing. What will he be wearing when he starts the National Anthem blue gene. Blue jeans. Or any other pants or shorts any other cancer shorts is an upset pick here. I've taken glued to our countries by Dahlia I'm saying it's an upset pick it it if it happens it's an upset. Will Luke Bryan be wearing a hat when he appears on screen before singing the National Anthem yes or no gas is at seven to five. Yes she yeah of course he has a ticket I don't know I'm saying now un. Really okay. Will Luke Bryan forget or or emit a word from the National Anthem. Yes it's a Florida one. I've taken it you take it yes yes you think he's a mess up the national at them now because here's what singers do. They skip the word sometimes. Here to help catch their breath. Are you sick or I mean. The you know that at dabble. Will any player on the falcons are patriots roster be seen kneeling before the National Anthem on TV or during the live broadcast. Yes is it 32 lives no one to two. I'm gonna guess probably not. I mean. Even if someone were to believe in that sort of thing these firestorm that probably comes at them after that. But again this is just kind of been deadpanned oh ho ho ho this is a Google. How many times will. Trump beset on TV during the broadcast the over under might surprise you what do you think are you looking at it yeah I am one and a half. My god the over. They have taken over to it is Brady Belichick alone yet but something. Who will president trump picked to win the game. Do we really and that is that even a prop oh the falcons have eleven to lots. But but Trump's friends with Belichick and Brady. And Robert Kraft I've spoken to Robert Kraft. They got the best organization. With them. This is did this it. What will be higher on Super Bowl Sunday Tom Brady rushing yards or Donald Trump's interview with dual Writely and it's half that and that's gonna happen during halftime. It's just one of the best. Note wager is on the length that the interview aired on Fox Broadcast or I am not the full length interview only the part shown on TV. Thomson. Number I've taken out how many times will quote Matty ice beset on TV during live broadcast the over under is only two. From kick off but that's beef from kick off to final whistle so it's only specifically during game action. It and says halftime personal do not apply to a low numbers and tuzla number I think with Joseph Bullock. But he is explicitly uses Matty ice yes. I'm as I've taken over yet. They email how many times will rock or gronkowski beset on TV during live broadcast or putting the over under at three. And it does seem rules apply this goes from kick off the final whistle I'm taking the over. But I wanted to talk about when to Estrada and offense I I might take you to hear. Unless you do to your gonna mostly I'm thinking even to get the rush I've taken push because. A must Martellus Bennett specifically has a great game. It's are really going to be I think. That no matter what let's say the patriots. Score forty points or they don't score at all. Let's say don't short all the anger and Ehrlich talked about all the absence of agriculture's quarterly. But I think also. If they'd blow them out it'll be all they did it. Without. Now this stringent and combine these two here guy how many times Arthur Blank be shown on TV over under is it too funny title Robert Kraft be shown on TV the over under is at two and a half. What's the next how many times we'll just a bunch in whose Tom Brady's wife who could be shown on TV during the broadcast that's the over underline is that one and a half. I don't I've taken under. Almighty god. That may be shoulder at the very end not that not that I'm talking about this next one times will the weight gain or deflate beset on TV during live broadcast. Over under is 11 and a half. Good lord take you over it's if it's that even one to one. I like this one. How many times JJ watt beam mentioned. He's not even all of their he's been okay. I think I've taken the under its one. No I think I would I think I take the push. I yeah it's got to be well here's why here's your cliche will Houston we have a problem be sad to during the live broadcast I absolutely think it well. Which coach will be mentioned by first. By name papers hang on hang on the no you skipped one. Skip my favorite one. The word lacrosse how many times global word lacrosse he said on TV during the live broadcast just will will it be all will no doubt why yes now what. One to three. While you really put money and get some of that at this jurors wires that. If the patriots win will Brady pork belly check or craft be seen shaking Roger Goodell hands on TV of course you think. What and they really going to be that salty to get a ticket Super Bowl trophy off his hands as a matter pick I think he did I think that they're gonna relish that opportunity. This is great what color will the liquid beat at his port out of the game winning coach first off racing's second off. That actually pretty good one that is. And if I like these next couple these next couple really good. Let's look at liquid I mean what are you taken I think it's orange. Or yellow. I won I'd looked at the city. You not call me crazy when you go with clear. The position we want her. There's there's Clinton would there's like the white. Gatorade now that I counter my thought is that it could be rad OK it absolutely could be rat. But I think yellow seems too easy I think it's got to be more. It well those ones are among the lowest at 321 there's more business I think I favor one. Or will the Super Bowl MVP mentioned first got there at the team or his teammates. Coach family owner huddled trough. I'd say there's no way it's Donald Trump but. I think god is is first of all like to thank god like is not the first thing that comes out these guys not not really if Roethlisberger. If it's. Who's all the sudden this newfound Korea or like religious put Tom Brady's done this so many high gas that I don't know I think you are I think he'd Danks. T Robert Kraft. Ninety goatee meets first look at that tree all the way I don't really know very many leading it got songs. Which song Lady Gaga played at first during the halftime show. Yeah I. Sure I think we all bad romance. Or. I don't the highest odds is born this way which I don't feel like that one I mean I know how popular song it is. So I feel like that one's gonna be like in the middle or that and to really close it out with a bang. So I think you're right. All right here's some of the actual game action T frets that. Props that I think will be interest in once a case of opening kick offers ultimate touch. That's actually very likely. It's expected Tuesday on its at one to two I'll think about each of those kickers. I don't I don't I don't discounts keep discussed he'll do it this cost you will and Matt bosh or is their kickoff specialist for Atlanta and they have a few specialized. Now it's done so that a kick off specialist yeah he's part it. But still. Say yes ample. I think either one easily will Brady Orion record 5450. Or more passing yards to break the Super Bowl record hole. You don't think so now both of them have we too good of running games which mean you talk a little more about it Lance when we get back from break we do. Will anybody other than Brady or Ryan attempt to pass. If if they Edison if that happens. There's calamity for T. Well maybe not so much New England but definitely if it if Matt solved through the past it's going the other way. Do both teams combined score 76 or more points which is the Super Bowl record. I think if this is the provide yes I think it's of the matchup that is yet as the one that you yeah I absolutely. Which is going to be the highest scoring quarter that's when I was looking at next that's an interest in one. The Atlanta Falcons are when you're in the first offensive play of the game as a runner past. 65 on paths. 23 on run. Will the team that scores first when the game. And total touchdowns line six and a half. Will there be a score in the final two minutes the first half I think absolutely absolutely absolutely east teams can master that. Back at two minute offense longest touchdown yardage is over under 52 and a half yards. I would I took the under. Even they apple get Jones and the ought to get to the under got the largest lead. Of the game by either team thirteen and a half. I'm taking the under I didn't get it close game under I hope news. First turn over the game will be a fumble interception or there will be no external the leaders going to be eternal over. And I'm guessing it's going to be interception a big one it'll be it'll come at a key time yet there's going to be a lot of passing going this will be a blocked punt in this. I think now now as you know will there be a missed extra point. Dan Carpenter was the game I'd almost as house hasn't been a seat either Iraq. You're correct and David is why I always told people come down about carpenter will the game go to overtime. Now I don't leave so will there be a safety I've seen there's no way bought I'll tell you this. I can't remember who was that. Ultimately end up. I wanna say it was somebody it was somebody in Vegas but that that Denver Seattle Super Bowl that there'd be a safety. He got it in the first five minutes of the game and one like. 70000 dollars here's a good one Korea will there be a penalty for excessive celebration now. Will there be a flea flicker attempted. Will be an onside kick attempted. I mean if it's close game. I would I would count on it. First and force penalty of the game holding a false start got to be false to. Especially just because that the jitters especially for the falcons. Yeah yeah I don't think it's here. Roughing the passer penalty called a ball of course. Of course is playing. Hey Tom Brady has the most odds to win Super Bowl MVP Matt Ryan second Julio Jones thirdly Garrett 14. Eric Eric Weems is the last guy in this list which. What's good for air queen for making it yeah OK bush first touchdown score. Julio Jones would guarantee wanna high on the list. Adamant about to Freeman's fourth. Chris slogan fit my toes spend sixty M Lewis seven my comments I knew Teva Coleman Taylor Gabriel Malcolm Mitchell. Okay let's go some player props here for got a break passing yards from Matt Ryan is over under 310 and a half say with summary. You taken over both. I think have taken over trouble of saying yes to Ryan noted pretty. Got a feeling Dion Lewis is going to be a total touchdown passes for each of them the over under two and a half I've taken over apple Korea easily. Who have the most receiving yards in the game Leo Jones I think it's that easy. I didn't feel uneasy is that the the over under for Julio 95 and half two in a minute 89 and a half. Will be higher. Allow cross sports but crops aren't we don't have time for this the go to I what will be higher and Super Bowl Sunday. Patriots total points scored or Russell Westbrook point scorer. And a I've got to create one here for yet. This went cross and a hockey actually. Carey Price saves that one yes Carey Price saves or the shortest field goal in terms of distance. In the game. Michael Carey Price incentive. I mean how much soreness Google. Will there be Hubble will be higher and Super Bowl Sunday sacks by the falcons in the game or points by failed to match. You know mid Atlantic to the realization acts. And how old standby just Elkins. Hang on. Because that game's actually going on right now. We can get a gauge where this deal. Allen is playing against the capitals right now. In its or not watching her not pick up speed. We might they have we might have some OP favorite there and I was taking. But Ovechkin has only one point. If that's. Fun it's fun stuff I loved the prop that. Boy what a comeback are you can't match up that we wanna bring up before we. Before we close off our our local coverage here suitable 51. So when we come back we'll get to that I've got a couple of keys I think for the falcons that will ultimately. Get them over the hump however I. Just don't see them. It's a fortune I want them to win but enough. Let me go back we'll do that we will continue what take your calls it got any and he bets you wanna do or any as for let us talk about before we get out of here this afternoon. And I'll make way for the west would want coverage of both of you when you're listening to the media or Sports Radio. Fight it. We have a good team will a lot of good players. Unfortunately. Hasn't been with a spear for a few weeks if he was nobody would you work harder than rob rob showed all the other occasions in this type environment where team and we. And we have a lot of good players. Several players are called on the stuff of good that they're that's what they've done. That they'll be double B Bill Belichick. Up Gradkowski. The dollar check. An interesting guy. I mean not really sexually. The least thing closest. To insisting he never just gives anything to anybody especially the media just loves playing mom and Iran. There are you playing dollar checks out. A that was a touch or just plain politics on net but it could pick. Our I got one less thing to say about these squares again we've been getting a lot of calls about them. We don't know what's going on with these squares I would say check WGR 550. An hour before the game. And if the squares are up they will be there if you win promotions will contact you. Because you've given us information on how to contact you you'll you know if you have one. On the squares you if you're getting a party from the regional control factory. And with their helpful pub of their friends from Miller Lite so again check that site now reform kick off we'll see what happens there. We don't know that's just the best guess that we got for you and a buck obviously. Yes I see it look it'll be participating squares but. I'll probably listen as people complain about them all day sat on the that are still about one but if it has six and six. It gets pretty good actually I mean it's good for not the final Nadal but he for a first second quarter means that you can win a quarter with that but. Buckner. Anyway so Derek we what we talked a little bit about two on port the run game differently and is likely going to be. How are rated as this. Falcon game theory vastly underrated him. I mean Kevin Coleman's about a Freeman they have then that's me crumbling a paper. Thanks because. That's what bill Belichick's going to be doing to his game plan because up I think the run game. Is going to be to keep his sibling Nate you know he smashes tablets now all that's right for more than 20% sure to 47 team that we have paper anymore we have tablets we have tablets and what are expected to strike and Bill Belichick did. Destroy a tablet. Because bills because the bills were the only team to shut the government home and check them. Fun fact bills and dementia the patriots and Sasha and shut them out at Gillette Stadium while Steve young's Pickford suitable the patriots 31. Atlanta thirty. That the activity of the great game Ron Amadon while I don't like your winner in this selection. I hope you're right this to me the most irony before we finish off the show watching Rex Ryan. On TV and behind it is the Atlanta falcons' logo. It if you remember. When you tell us bills. I think heap he's choosing the patriots 20/20 one. I think if you remember ally of government run remembering correctly. But I'm pretty sure Rex Ryan for like he decided not to take a second interview with Atlanta to take a second interview with the bills. I you might be right I'd write you might be right I usually write a small case. To that want to but battle. You one of the greatest part because of what you just almost. Belichick now I mean Rex Ryan is now kissing Belichick's ranked. By and by guessing it's predicting that he's going to win Super Bowl that's true so take that racks. Our take that with your now Clemson colored truck I'm taking the patriots. What they say yes they 2720 yes and how surprised as how you only got them to 20/20 7:20 am taking the patriots won a cryptic as you pick over on Matt Ryan throwing for more than two touchdowns. Eight it threw three touchdowns and a gopher next two point conversion not make it but one other. Twice 120 I'm gonna stick with my my original score and. I think ultimately what is the happening is time pretty ones and and have fun BP or AS of balmy. Players who have won the MVP that played in the Super Bowl the day after winning at all except. Really only seven. And include snobbery an atlas winning the MVP in the nineteen in a season and losing to the jacks. Interest. Well thank you for joining us this Sunday at. Afternoon to help preview Super Bowl 51 Derek give me your score and final. Well I think I'm going with the planning here your Keogh I'm go I'm stick or they feel I wrote something on at eleven dad that I picked the pages that was earlier in the week. I have the right to changes. And I'm going to utilize those changes I'm going to remain with my pick and I had yesterday. Got Atlanta I'm saying. I score all of 34 to 31 that. That's other app to beat to death got to be okay that's going to mean Lake Erie dare Cramer take the prop bet of Luke Bryant wearing blue jeans it's gonna happen. Thanks for joining us except pregame coverage of civil 51 at Westwood one's coverage of super what you want coming up next right here and media.
