Excellent Pats Info

This pod is in my regular rotation. Curran and Perry provide excellent inside info in an entertaining way.

Pats cut Cam?!

Do you think Bill puts bandaids on the hairiest part of his arm just to practice ripping them off?

ChipfromCT ,

Outstanding content & delivery

Tommy, Tom-E, Tom-tom... probably not a fair physical comparison, but Mac Jones looks like a freshman compared to the fully-grown Cam Newton. Do you think Mac would benefit from the TB12 program, and how do you think BB would react to that?
