On today’s show, Pat and a few of the guys record live from a hotel room in Pittsburgh right after coming back from WWE Monday Night Raw. They recap their roadtrip from Indiana to Cleveland to Pittsburgh and everything that they did along the way including WWE Fastlane, some of their dining experiences, and beating the inclement weather that was on their backs. Also included in the show is Pat’s interview with Rich Eisen on the NFL Network Free Agency Frenzy as he discussed Antonio Brown going to Oakland, who some of the best free agent punters are, and Rich gives him another push to keep the #McAfeeForMNF train rolling (28:54-36:08). Later, an absolute legend in the game, an NFL Hall of Famer, one of the most recognizable faces in NFL media, The Professor, John Clayton, joins the show. They discuss everything free agency related and how AB almost wound up in Buffalo, he gives a couple of ideas where he thinks certain players might land as teams are handing out insane amounts of cash, he dives into what his work weeks are like during these types of hot beds in the NFL calendar, gives his Super Bowl pick for next year, and chats about whether or not the pony tail is real (41:48-1:03:10.) It’s a fun 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.
Today’s episode is absolutely loaded. First, budding 49ers superstar, arguably the best TE in the NFL right now and friend of the show, George Kittle, calls in hot off his 210 yard performance on Sunday. They chat about the game and why he didn’t eclipse the record after his monster first half, he breaks down a live game of PIG being played between the 9ers Specialists and Joe Staley, he takes issue with something Pat Angerer said, and they discuss wrestling some more as George presents a West Virginia vs. Iowa wrestling match. (1:32-11:47). Next, one of Pat’s former teammates and one of the most athletic lineman in the NFL, offensive tackle for the Chicago Bears, Bradley Sowell, calls in coming off scoring the only touchdown in Sunday night’s tilt against the Rams. They discuss how his career has been going up to this point, how hard he had to beg to be on the receiving end of that touchdown Sunday, his golf game and whether he’d ever consider turning pro, and the atmosphere in the Bears’ locker room right now (17:20-28:47). Later, Pro introduces a new segment titled, “A reading from the book of..” where he highlights one of the guys’ blogs from this past week. They also discuss Digs’ recent Steelers rant and dive into an incredible NFL conversation including a lock from Gorman for all the brobrobro’s. Also included is Pat’s interview with Mike Florio on Pro Football Talk discussing some things going on in the NFL (1:05:16-1:17:45), and Pat runs through some of the songs compiled from his year end Spotify playlist. Closing out the show is an interview with Purdue legend and national inspiration, Tyler Trent, to help start your weekend with some positivity (1:39:09-1:59:00). It’s a great one. Come and laugh with us, cheers.
When I look back on this game, I won’t remember the end result and Kenyan Drake doesn’t really exist.
I left seconds after Stephen G hit a field go to go up by 5 points. ‘Beat the rush’ my mother said. Dolphins fans telling people the Patriots had won outside the stadium. Nothing could go wrong. Then there was magic in Miami and now we sit at 9-4 instead of a nice 10-3. The Chargers must be livid right now, 10-3 and the fifth seed in the AFC, I wouldn’t be happy. Bill Belichick isn’t going to sleep for a month because of this damn play, but we needed this to happen. The Patriots have one terrible loss at the end of every season to wake them up. If it wasn’t Miami, it would of been the Steelers next week. In the grand scheme, Sunday could of been worse. Houston could of won, Steelers could of won, but instead everyone lost so we’ll take the record and move on to Pittsburgh. Yeah, that’s right, Lord Brady still broke another record, quietly taking over every record at the QB position.
NFL Canada? Yeah, I found out this account existed today. What a route, what a throw, what a terrible feeling watching this play and knowing at the end of this game my heart would be out of my chest. Whatever, Brady continues to knock Peyton Manning down a notch nearly every week and for that I still have a pulse.
Disclaimer: Tom Brady’s record in Florida is 34-12, definitely could be worse.
This is the exact reason why I didn’t understand Steelers fans not wanting Le’Veon Bell to come back to the team for the last part of the season. Conner got A LOT of touches early in the season and something like this could happen at anytime. Bell would’ve been a very nice insurance policy. Have no fear though, Jaylen Samuels is here.
The good news is that the Steelers have to play the Raiders this week and if they can’t beat the Raiders without James Conner they don’t deserve to make the playoffs anyway. It’s not like Conner has been lighting it up anyways. After rushing for 100 yards in 4 straight games Conner has not broke 65 yards in his last 4. This could be a good thing in that Conner rests for a week, gets his mind right and his healthy for the Patriots game next week. That could also just be the optimist in me coming out.
You piece of shit. I now know why people say that when you break up with someone that you should do it quickly and swiftly instead of dragging your partner along for months at a time giving them hope. It would’ve been fine if #26 would have said i’m not going to play this year because of this, this, and this and I will just be with another team in 2019. That would’ve been fine. Nope, thats not how it was handled. #26 handled it like some kid in junior high who hates his gf but is too scared to break up with her because she gave him his first handjob. Lets recap what he did this year (very short version…. i’m not wasting my time on him)
- #26 said he would show up week 1 just like last year…. Nope
- #26 said he would show up during the bye week… nope
- #26 says Fairwell to Miami ( you had fucking ten weeks to learn how to spell and say goodbye to Miami and your precious jet skis you fuck.)
4. #26 travels all the way to Pittsburgh to play some pick up basketball at an LA fitness. I now have to just assume that he couldn’t find a good pickup game in Miami and only came to Pittsburgh for this.
5. For the first time all year the Steelers report that they expect #26 to report back because I assume he told them he would.
6. #26 decides he’s not coming back because he’s scared James Conner will continue to make him look bad and he’s going to get significantly less money next year.
The dude is not a man of his word and the football gods pay attention to that. They do not take disrespecting the game lightly. He is destined to never do good things again.
I cannot wait for #26 to go to the Jets or to the Browns or Bucs, or Raiders and be absolutely miserable behind Offensive lines that are not even close to the Steelers. Good luck doing your pitter patter bullshit behind any other line. Would be a real shame if teams saw what Conner was doing behind that line and realized #26 shouldn’t be paid more than an average back.
James Conner has exposed #26 and his market value has never been lower. If he was a real man he would’ve showed up for the last 7 games and playoffs to show that he’s better than Conner and still get paid. Would be a real shame if James Conner scores the winning TD in the Super Bowl. That would just be the perfect ending.
I also really hope #26 didn’t turn down 14 million this year because he thinks his way to much auto-tune rap career is going anywhere. His most popular song has 100,000 streams on Spotify. I assume #26 spent weeks and months writing and recording his album to get 100,000 streams. Pat fucked around and wrote a comedy rap about the Sea of Japan and Jim Kong in 2 hours and got 135,000 streams just fucking around lol…. Still a banger. #26 has 0 future in music.
Oh and these are just more lies.
#26 will go down as the most hated Pittsburgh athlete of all time and it’s not even close. Barry Bonds is now allowed back.
Each week on Sunday’s I am glued to the NFL and the internet so I might as well put it to good use and bring to you the best videos of the weekend from the NFL. These are not just highlights and good plays because you can get those from anywhere. These will be different. These are the videos that the big corporate shows are not going to show you. I mean some of the videos might be but you get the point. I’m also going to miss some videos because I’m human, the internet is a big place, and I’m lazy so understand that as well. Lets get this started.
LOLOLOL you do not have to be a Browns fan or a Dragon Ball Z fan to appreciate the genius of this video. I got a nice healthy laugh out of this. It couldn’t be more spot on.
Love you Baker. Never Change. Nothing greater than waking up and feeling dangerous. Especially since you’re on the Browns and it won’t happen oftern.
Aaron Donald is an animal. There is not an ounce of fat on that man. He might be the last human in the league that I would want to see putting his helmet on and rushing the field to fight me. He just dapped up a few guys, strapped up his helmet, and calmly went to pick a fight with another ginormous human.
Quenton Nelson is real life Juggernaut. Barry Church had no idea what he was getting into on this play. He honestly might retire after this season strictly because of this.
Something about Matt Ryan being mad is SO funny. Like look in the mirror guy. No one is going to pay attention to or take you being mad seriously. The voice in the video is exactly what you’d think Matt Ryan’s voice sounds like when he’s mad.
Welcome back Khalil Mack. Thank god you got out of Oakland.
Why does Floyd Mayweather need TWO NFL game balls? The fucking rich get richer. Guy has a horse shoe shoved up his ass. I probably would’ve given it to the 5th grader who doesn’t have a bazillion dollars and who knows how to read like 10 seats down but that’s just me.
Tyreek Hill scores a TD and films his teammates celebrating said TD. Absolute Genius. You should not be flagged if the celebration is that well thought out.
Can only imagine how well she took the loss. Some Golden Corral waitress did not deserve the tongue lashing she received later that night.
Poor Tom. I’m starting to think that Belichick only runs this play for future evidence of why he cut Tom.
This fucking guy. No words for this fucking guy. Or maybe I have a lot of words for him here: https://www.patmcafeeshow.com/nfl/former-steelers-rb-26-failing-rap-artist-is-done-in-pittsburgh/1217
Oh and this video has nothing to do with the NFL but it’s phenomenal.
I’ll do better next week.
The Panthers got their dicks kicked in from start to finish in every single aspect of the game. They had one play that worked twice and that was about it. That play was the ole Christian McCaffrey wheel route.
Now lets just check out the ass whooping one TD at a time. See if we can get them all.
- Ben Roethlisberger 75 yards to Juju Smith-Schuster.
The Panthers had just scored to go up 7-0, no worries. 1 play and 75 yards later Juju and his sicko mode cleats were dancing in the end zone. Stay lit JuJu, stay lit.
2. The very next play Vinny Williams Pick 6
Tons of credit to TJ Watt for forcing this piss poor decision by Cam. Just probably not the best idea to throw it up for grabs in the middle of the field. Respect the optimism though.
3. James Conner 2 yard TD to make it 21-7
James the Punisher Conner doing what he does best. Scoring his 11th TD of the season. P.S. we have some dope new Conner shirts on the store.
4. Ben Roethlisberger 53 yards to Antonio Brown
These 2 make it look so easy. AB is so smooth when the ball is in the air doing the most subtle things to get some extra space from the corner. We knew he would have a big night after he showed he was so excited to get to the stadium today, getting pulled over going 100+ MPH in his nice little Porsche.
5. Ben Roethlisberger 12 yards to Vance McDonald
Vance will make em dance. So you’ve got AB, JuJu, and Conner under control and then you have this bull in a china shop running down the middle of the field…. Good Luck.
6. Ben Roethlisberger 8 yards to Jesse James
It’s officially a party and everyone is invited when the outlaw is getting in the end zone.
7. Ben Roethlisberger 6 yards to the rookie Jaylen Samuels
At this point the Steelers were just fucking around and seeing if they could get anyone and everyone on the offense a TD.
That was it for the TD’s but the shoutouts are not done yet.
Special Teams: Boswell went 7-7 on Xp’s and drilled a 50 yard FG so he’s basically all the way back and Rosevelt Nix caused a fumble on a kickoff to set up an easy TD.
Defense: 5 Sacks, 1 Inteception, 1 TD and put pressure on Cam all night.
It was an almost perfect game by all 3 phrases and a certain potential teammate was enjoying it all.
Few other Notes:
I can’t be mad at Eric Reid because he was in a tough position but he definitely tried ending Ben’s life
This little hey my bad man its just business fist bump made everything fine for me.
This dude falling asleep on the bench pretty much summed up the Panthers night.
What a great night for the Steelers. Buy some merch here to celebrate. https://store.patmcafeeshow.com/collections/pittsburgh
QUICK PICKS! Pat and Digs break down tonight’s Thursday Night Football game between the Steelers and Panthers brought to you by Mybookie.ag
This is actually pretty impressive. I’ve been on McKnight Road many many times taking trips to the ole Ross Park Mall (best mall in Pittsburgh). On this road there is ALWAYS traffic and has 486 red lights so being able to go 100+ on said road is quite a feat. Congrats to Antonio on such an accomplishment. Good news here, he didn’t pull a LeGarrette Blount / Le’Veon where they also got charged with marijuana possession. Also good news here is that this shows how excited Antonio Brown is to play the Panthers tonight. Probably because of the Color Rush Jerseys.
