On this week's show, Nick and I are joined by our first ever former Patriots player, ex-linebacker and member of the elite Three Ring Club Matt Chatham, now of NESN. He's not only one of the best analysts in the business in terms of explaining scheme, concepts and terminology, he offers a ton of great perspective on where the 2021-22 Patriots are and how they got here. While we do get into quite a bit of the inexplicable loss to the Dolphins - and Matt explics most of it - the focus is more on the Wild Card game and how to handle the Bills. He gives us some fascinating insights into things that most of us miss from our couches and barstools (small-b) every week. From how to handle Josh Allen to how to attack the Bills defense, as well as deep dives into the play of Christian Barmore and the other Pats DTs, how Dont'a Hightower has brought more to the table than most of us realize, as well as, of course, Mac Jones.
Plus we get Nick's weekly hopeful, optimistic Jonnu Smith question, listener voicemails and much, much more. By all means, offer your comments on how we can make literally the finest Patriots podcast in the history of mankind even better. And we'll see you back next week with another Pats insider to breakdown the Wild Card game and look ahead to their next opponent in the Divisional round. Slainte'.
