BOSTON (CBS) – What began as a civil discussion about the Patriots’ Divisional Round matchup against the Indianapolis Colts quickly turned hostile, as Jermaine Wiggins exchanged in a heated debate with Michael Felger and Tony Massarotti about the Colts’ credentials.
“I don’t think the Colts will be easy, but I think it’s a perfect matchup for the Patriots. I see the Patriots now in the Super Bowl,” opened Wiggy on Tuesday.
“Wow that’s a shocker,” said a sarcastic Tony Massarotti.

Wiggy clarified his position and said he wasn’t picking them to win it all, but he thinks they’ll get there. Felger wasn’t buying it, and called “bullcrap” on his whole prediction.
“Really? We would get to the Super Bowl and you would pick San Francisco? No you wouldn’t!” Felger cried.
“You are unbelievable Wiggy, you really are,” said Mazz.
Jettisoning from the Super Bowl talk, Wiggy got into why he’s so confident the Patriots will take care of business Saturday night against the Colts, and why they present a better matchup for the Patriots over the Bengals.
“Let’s be honest, the quarterbacks that the Patriots have faced have been hanging up 300 yards passing against them, guys like Case Keenum and Jason Campbell. But I’m not necessarily looking at the quarterbacks, I’m looking at the weapons. Cincinnati has more weapons. If you take away T.Y. Hilton, you’ll beat that Colts team.”
“The Colts don’t have a running game. Defensively, they are awful. Their secondary is not very good. They have one good player on defense – their linebackers are not very good. Offensively, I think Andrew Luck is a good quarterback, but he will make poor decisions and turn the football over,” said Wiggy.
Wiggy then compared Andrew Luck’s decision-making (don’t forget now that he threw three interceptions against the Chiefs) to that of Andy Dalton, which got the Luck-loving Michael Felger irate.
All Felger has heard from Wiggins recently is that, “In today’s NFL, the only thing that matters is the coach and the quarterback” – so then, why is Wiggy so happy to see the Colts coming to town?
Aren’t Chuck Pagano and Andrew Luck a better tandem than Marvin Lewis and Andy Dalton?
