Tucker high on Kaepernick
Let's bring in former Patriot Ross Tucker of the NBC sports network and Sirius XM NFL radio. Ross we got to start with the Super Bowl MVP Joseph Flacco. One of the all time great runs through the post season. Where does he stand right now among the NFL's elite QBs. Well I've -- for a long time and he's been in my top eight -- this probably put -- around five or six. I don't know if he's been consistent enough in the regular season to break through that top five it's awfully tough. With guys like Aaron Rodgers Big -- Tom Brady and Peyton Manning of course but he's right there and -- what he -- do it really is next year. During the regular season pick up where left off. His regular season record has been phenomenal this playoff record has been phenomenal he has not had a consistent touchdown interception ratio. Yards completion percentage for people who believe he's going to be a top five quarterback but if he's not there yet he hit six and he's awfully close. -- on the other side of the field Collins can't predict had a good showing. Maybe not great but he did almost pull off that comeback you had an interesting week. You said I can't think of the QB I take over after they for the next ten years why are you still Ohio the second your quarterback. Well I think if you take a long enough time horizon viewers -- ten years I've put myself. In Jed York's position as the owner of the Simpsons go 49ers. I didn't any other quarterback I'd rather have maybe you said the next five years. Maybe a guy like Aaron Rodgers but I'm telling you this guy's skill -- is off the -- his arm is as strong as anybody. He's pretty much as fast as anybody as a quarterback the touch is there -- wouldn't think it was we saw this post season -- touch is there the accuracy. Was also stellar throughout. I have -- the -- -- -- a pick six against the Packers came back to have an all time great performance was down seventeen nothing. And AFC championship game. What his team all the way back for the win even the Super Bowl last night 48 to six they were losing he was able to bring them all the way back. -- never too soon to look ahead to next Super Bowl the Patriots one of the favorites if not beat favored to win the Super Bowl next year they've been the pre season favorite to win at the last few years. But they've come up short as you know also wives and Patriots nation think that next season will be any different for their team. I don't know law of averages at this point I mean they're knocking on the door every year you think one of these years they're gonna break through when they keep having these long. Extended playoff runs his long they've got the -- do get Belichick and Brady they're gonna be in the mix I don't think. They're any better. In the Baltimore Ravens for the Denver Broncos I would put them as more of a favorite. That neither one of those things but they rule almost certainly be in the mix they always are.
