Sun, 17 Mar 2013|
Reporters from around the country discuss topics including the Danny Amendola replacing Wes Welker, Bruins losing twice to the Penguins in the week, and the most powerful athletes.
Time now for conference call -- whip around the nation that let's check in with -- -- and all pro football weekly Eric what did you think of the Danny Amendola signed by the Patriots. Is it just another thing you know that it is the pressure being you know compared to guarantee you're prepared you all -- career is certainly something we're gonna -- a lot but. If you look at really it'd been cut a couple times -- -- our niche for itself. You know keep in eleven games this year where it was Wes Welker did CC right before he broke out prior started as a major. He's actually get better answer than that well I think. And I thought it's better note here and obviously industries but. You know it -- -- -- -- -- -- injuries and stuff thought I think that they think the bill although Lucas I think the player that particular player on the offense. Wes Welker side of the Denver Broncos look for the national reaction to west out west. Well I think doctor -- about it and see what happens up front office you know I mean it was. Brady so a year ago -- player of the -- -- good football with straight dating but not completely different baker person that I felt. You know a Little League under the position actually into the dynamic players did so well at New England all. Continues his career there -- dispute difference maker that we put together before couple weeks ago but. It ought to straightaway with a is that this is in new England and we kind of spot there had been some momentum toward getting -- -- obviously -- -- -- confident that with the Patriots. Yet another big humane society gets away from the wing Linda are the Patriots -- viewed as she around the league or just Smart with how they spend. It. I think the latter obviously there are the -- -- votes -- -- to -- they have their hot you know they don't value anybody here say earnings -- Tom Brady apparently they got bit. To go on the cheap what is the latest contract extension but. I think it's time and time again they've proven they know wins to get rid of a player act you know that the -- -- there's no particular value. It was so Smart about things they know their players and their personnel better than anybody else. They don't get emotional about these decisions felt you know you'll have to tip your cap the way -- -- -- because if it. Local telecheck cold unemotional no you don't say thank you -- next up. Jesse Spector national hockey writer for the sporting news we've seen the Bruins at the Penguins the Eastern Conference -- league match -- twice this week and both times. He goes to Pittsburgh was that more because of what the Penguins are or what the Bruins have not been here by -- I think they're both excellent teams in the Penguins just happened to be writing a real hot streak right now having won nine and Guerrero. Through the -- just behind they're still gonna make the playoffs with relatively easier still battling that are these division title with. Montreal Canadians obviously that. You wanna get that number one seed if you -- that -- with a three point lead -- -- right now. We finally have a NHL PA ratification. On realize that what do you think about the proposed realignment. I'm not the biggest they said. He didn't really tactic to go with assists for division alignment there were some more outside the box solutions because that. Especially when you have Detroit and Columbus going to be peace and that was something that was done this. Mollify the NHL PA a little bit but it doesn't leave you a lot of wiggle room with Phoenix Coyotes moved. This sake of that city because they need haven't nine. Team in 1 of those eastern division you have to move somebody back west. And next up Eric Karros VEL Horrow sports ventures in both the Bloomberg TV sports folio. Interesting -- the power brokers in professional athletics. And the across the occur across the landscape and got a -- actually had Peyton Manning it. I had the number one quarterback number two overall actually. And so when you look at this this list and you look at. He'll Peyton Manning beating out the likes of Drew Brees in Tom Brady what made Peyton Manning stand out above the rest of the quarterback. What was the fourth year of this study 50% cotton field 50% off deals with the company respect. Indoor facility like abilities you know big -- 51 last year he couldn't play good the next. But -- -- was number three Drew Brees or Tom Brady's seven Aaron Rodgers and overall there were 44. And it -- player on this list. So the bottom line is that the combination of marketability and little that an upper.
