On today’s show, Pat and the guys do a DEEP dive into the Divisional Round of the playoffs and cover everything else that happened in the NFL over the weekend. They chat about the Patriots not being dead, the Chiefs dominating victory over the Colts, the Rams looking like one of the best teams in the NFL, and Nick Foles seeing his magic run out. Gorms also talks a bit about his weekend going to the Colts/Chiefs game on the private jet with Jim Irsay. Later, friend of the show, Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk calls in for a nice hearty football discussion. They bounce around from the playoffs, his schedule now that the football season is almost over, and what he thinks about all the different coaching changes thus far. The room also fires several questions at Florio ranging from AB potentially playing in San Francisco or somewhere else, if the Packers made a good decision in Matt LaFleur, how he settled on Pro Football Talk, and who he thinks will win the Super Bowl (1:26:34-2:10:13). Pat also debuts a new segment, “Let’s Get Topical,” as he discusses who might be out to get The Rock after a UK magazine misquoted him in an interview, and the conspiracy behind the Instagram egg that took over Kylie Jenner for the most liked picture on the app. It’s a really good one. Come and laugh with us, cheers.
On today’s show, Pat and the guys cover a vast range of topics. They discuss whether or not they think Urban Meyer will coach again and how the cult’s of college football teams impact a coach’s legacy, and get into the feedback Pat was given after calling his first NFL game and if he thinks he’ll get another chance to do so and in what capacity and where. The guys also discuss the first few days of the weight loss challenge and how the participants are battling through it, dive into a little movie talk ranging from Kevin Costner’s athletic skills, to Avatar, to Goodfellas, which results in a conversation about the current state of the mafia, and if they still operate. They also cover all the drama going on in Pittsburgh with the Steelers and talk about a couple of the potential landing spots for AB if he is to get traded, chat about the NFL playoff games this weekend and who they’re leaning towards, get into a little bit of a fast food discussion, and question where the phrase “bless you,” came from and if it should be extended to other things as well. It’s a hilarious one. Come and laugh with us, cheers.
Apparently Tom Cruise and Miles Teller have formed a bromance on the set of Top Gun: Maverick. While Tom is no doubt a great actor, he is a deeply strange, creepy dude. Having said that, I imagine it’s next to impossible to not become best friends with the guy while flying around in jets and shooting with him in a role you grew up dreaming of as a child. A bunch of pics are out from the set via HollywoodPipeline.
Teller is playing the role of Goose’s son in the film and old Tom is back in the saddle as Lt. Pete “Maverick” Mitchell. Teller looks the part with the stache and oddly long head, no word on what his call sign will be yet or if he’ll carry the “Goose” mantle. Even Val Kilmer is bringing Iceman back, but unfortunately no pics of him yet. Very interested to see what kind of shape Val is in for this, there are internet rumors he’s had some health problems.
This man is supposed to be 56 years old. I swear he has the DNA of a fucking turtle. Expectations are sky high for this film and there will definitely be riots in the streets if they fuck this up (ok, maybe just me).
As much as I love the first film you can’t try to recreate that magic so here’s hoping this is more in the vein of the newer Mission Impossible Tom films these past few years. The director is the same guy who did Oblivion with Tom in the past, and Only The Brave so I have faith. We need dog fights, we need drones, we need drama filled cock pit shots with sweat beading down their faces and radar lock tones, we need Kenny Loggins back on the soundtrack. Who’s the enemy this time? The Russians again? Covert Ops in Korea? China!? ALIENS!!!?!?
These are my favorite pics released so far. Just because Tom’s too damn tiny to step over the bar and has to monkey his way down.
Teller is rocking an Eagles hat in a few of these but there’s no way this is anything for the film (He’s a Philly guy in rl). There’s 0% Goose and his kid would be Eagle’s fans, definitely big mid west guys.
The current release date is set for June of 2020. Let’s hope Val holds up til then.
There’s nothing like gambling on an NFL Sunday. It can bring you the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. All of your bets can be looking amazing at 3PM only to have your heart ripped out by 4PM. NFL gambling is a fickle bitch and is not for the faint of heart. With that being said lets get into todays picks.
FALCONS -7 @ BROWNS, O/U 51
Falcons have won 3 in a row and are starting to get hot at the right time while the Browns are still the Browns even though they got rid of the worst coach of all time. I liked the line much better at 5 but I would still roll with the Falcons who have much more to play for than the Browns. Oh and Julio remembered how to score TD’s again.
LIONS +7.5 @ BEARS, O/U 44.5
This one is pretty simple for me. The public is HIGH on the Bears while the Lions have fallen off in the public eye the last 2 weeks. The Bears offense is not good enough to be a 7 point favorite against the Lions. This line should’ve been more like 3-4 points so I am rolling with the LIONS all day especially with that pesky little hook at the end.
JAGUARS +3 @ COLTS, O/U 48
If there is a bet that’s going to fuck me today it’s going to be this one. I am banking on he Jaguars remembering how to play football with them coming off a bye and getting Fournette back. I know the Colts O line is better than it has been the last few years but they are young and I’m thinking the Jags D line causes fits all day long. Give me the Jags and the points.
EAGLES -8 vs COWBOYS, O/U 45
Eagles and Doug Pederson coming off a bye facing the Jason Garrett led Cowboys. Thats a mismatch if i’ve ever seen one. The Cowboys can’t score and will continue to not score against the Eagles. As long as the eagles get to 24 points this one shouldn’t be an issue. Eagles -8 at home on Sunday Night
And just like every other day. Make sure you parlay those. Nothing worse than going 4-0 and realizing if you parlayed you would’ve won so much more.
Good Luck to Everyone. Bet at MyBookie.ag and follow those bets on the Sports Action App. Follow my picks at myaction.app/Digs
