Felger & Mazz: August 23, 2013
On today’s edition of Felger and Mazz, Marc Bertrand subbed in for Felger on an agenda-free Friday. Mazz and Bertrand opened the show breaking down the Patriots’ 40-9 drubbing by the Detroit Lions last night. Did the guys chalk it up to a bad night or a potential foreshadowing of bigger problems for the team? Jerry Thornton joined the guys at the end of the hour as well to discuss the Pats-Lions game and what can be taken away from it.
In the second hour of Mazz and Bertrand, the guys continued to dissect the crushing loss to the Lions last night and analyzed whether the fact Tim Tebow did not play for a snap signals anything about his job security with the team. The guys also start to dig into the Red Sox-Dodgers upcoming series this weekend, and reflect on the year anniversary of the blockbuster deal between the two teams.
In the third hour of Felger and Mazz, Chris Gasper of The Boston Globe joins the guys in studio, as the discussion turned back to the Patriots’ loss. What players are on the hot seat now after a subpar performance in Detroit last night? How concerning was the team’s defensive play against the Calvin Johnson-less Lions’ offense.
In the final hour of Felger and Mazz, the guys turned their attention back to the Red Sox, as they close out their west coast trip in Los Angeles. They also wonder why Carl Crawford continues to whine about his time in Boston, nearly a year after his departure. After taking more calls on the Patriots’ struggles, the guys close out the week with another edition of Mad Mike and Squeaky Mazz in The Final Word.
