Like, if they had beaten Washington 23-17, while KC rolled Indy 40-0, then yeah, I could see them saying "if they played KC yesterday they'd have lost". No one would disagree.

But they literally played Buffalo last week, basically played no different on D than they did yesterday, played better offensively yesterday than last week... it's a nonsensical comment.

Imagine if the Patriots were 3-2 or worse?

I mean, I get that the show can't be four-hour, five day Chris Farley Show, but quit being so blatant about your trolling.

Felger thinks Brady is taking more sacks to protect his passer rating and completion percentage. Or because he is mad about Brown and is making a point his weapons stink. Haha.

Was just coming here to post that. Amazing the narratives they are willing to run with without any actual evidence. All of a sudden at age 42 Brady is concerned about his QB rating.

Especially after taking 4 total sacks in the first 4 games. THEN he got pissed and decided to start taking sacks.

We might be watching history. The numbers are starting to stack. Nearly 1/3 of the way through the season. What this defense has done in that time—it’s no middling amount, but a real chunk—wallops where the ‘85 Bears were at. The offense will improve; that is the year in, year out theme, with limited exceptions. This could end up as the best Patriots team of all time. Or not. But that’s a reasonable surmise at present, and worth monitoring. I see a team that will beat the Chiefs because of its defense. As for Brady, his game has less holes than a Mahomes, who is a different kind of player when confined to the pocket. Brady is a snapping turtle. A snapping turtle picks its spots. Waits for the right time and place, bides time in the meanwhile. Maybe they should talk about some of these ideas. I can no longer stomach so much as three seconds’ worth of the show—Maz reminds me of that obsequious little rat dude who hung out with Jabba the Hutt—he’s pure churlish toady—and the accounts I encounter in this fine forum underscore the wisdom in staying away. You don’t have to make up shit on the radio. You can be more thoughtful and knowledgeable—and still with some edge—than the garden variety fan, and that carries the day. More shows ought to try that.

"Brady is a system QB now."
--Jim Murray

Brady is on pace to have over 35 touchdowns and less than 10 interceptions.
And Gisele is a "system model." And Jim Murray is a "system moron." (Although to be fair, I think Murray could be a very effective moron even without a microphone and radio station.)

Why do you guys listen to these obvious attempts to yank your chains? I mean, this shit isn't even clever. What's the appeal?
I haven't listened to these clowns in months. The hot takez that the toughest guy in the room (and indoor sunglasses wearer) Jim Murray makes me laugh. "These guys are all wimps, unlike me who has to wear sunglasses inside because the light hurts my eyes. But fuck them."

So tough.

I catch small bits and pieces of the show for two reasons. First, because I sometimes listen to Toucher & Rich in the morning and when I get in my car to drive home it is on so I listen for a minute (literally a minute or two) until it becomes unbearable. Second, because sometimes I get the urge to hear some sports (mostly NFL) discussion on the radio during my drive home so I foolishly tune in, and that typically lasts for just a minute or two as well. If they have Bedard, Price or Gasper in studio and if they are talking general NFL and not focusing solely on the Pats, it can sometimes be OK. When it is just F&M and Murray talking Pats it is unlistenable.

I did like how Bedard pinned Felger (I only listen to Bedard’s weekly segments) on the tension between his positions that the ‘cap is crap’ and ‘signing AB fucked them under the cap.’

Minus the interest in the NFL, this is what I hear of the show too. I usually have T&R on for my morning commute, so when I return to the car, F&M is on. My listening time is typically under 5 minutes. That, along with following this thread, is sufficient to keep me away from the show. I'm not a hate listener.

Is this Ticket Fugitive thing supposed to be funny? This is 100% a Jim Murray not funny joke.
It’s a parody of a hack radio bit. It was too inside baseball and sounded slapped together. While the Fugitive gimmick has been used for a long time by top 40 stations across the country, it’s still not something that most people will immediately know.

EDIT: If not Murray, the producers put this together for their own amusement.
