BOSTON (CBS) – It was a Buy Or Sell Monday night on The Adam Jones Show’s Game Of Jones!
Adam Jones answered the questions while Rich Keefe moderated the segment.
Here are the questions:
Buy or Sell: Mets’ first baseman Lucas Duda should be remembered with the likes of Bill Buckner and Steve Bartman
“I am going to sell that idea. They were down 3-1 in the series so it’s not like it was Game 6 and the Red Sox could put it away for the first time in 70 years,” said Jones. “The stakes weren’t quite what they were in those other games. New York was likely losing this series one way or another. It was too steep of a hill to get themselves out of to consider [Duda] with the other epic screw ups in MLB postseason history.”
“That being said, it was a major screw up by Lucas Duda.”
Buy or Sell: The Denver Broncos have the best defense in the NFL
“I buy that. The way Denver plays in the secondary separates them,” Jones said of a Broncos defense that is allowing an NFL-low 172 passing yard per game. “Denver is so deep in the secondary and their front seven is legit. I do buy theyre the best defense in the NFL, but it might not make a difference against the Patriots.”
Buy or Sell: The Green Bay Packers offense is sneaky overrated
“I will buy that also, and I like how you asked that: Are they ‘sneaky’ overrated?,” said Jones. “That offense is still good and the Packers are still very good — they’re the best team in the NFC in my opinion. But it’s because of the singular greatness of Aaron Rodgers, who can mask their deficiencies on defense and some of the skill deficiencies they have on offense, compared to the last few years. I buy that they are ‘sneaky’ a little overrated.”
Buy or Sell: Despite their depth, Celtics head coach Brad Stevens should find an 8-9 man rotation
“I sell that idea. One of the things that will have the Celtics piling up wins this year is having 9-10-11 guys every night, and maybe they’re not the same 9-10-11 guys every night. Maybe it’s mixing and matching with different lineups off the bench or different starting lineups based on the opponent. One of the only things the Celtics have going for them, besides their head coach, is their depth. I wouldn’t shy away from it, I would embrace it.”
Buy or Sell: Ohio State should be in college football’s Top 4
“I buy it. It’s hard for me to sit here and knock out the defending champions. How impressive have they been in actuality? Meh. But how impressive has Baylor or Clemson or LSU been in actuality? The same game you can play with Ohio State, you can play with the other undefeated teams.”
