  1. Felger can say, "I told ya so" to somebody else, I'm not going there. Thought I turned to the NFL Network after the game but I had it on Comcast.( they are right next to each other on my cable system) There's Felger trying like hell to get Troy Brown to join him in bashing Moss. (Troy wouldn't take the bait)…….jeeze, Felger is such an annoying little prick….can I say "prick" here?……too late I guess.

    1. It should be prick with a capital "P". As long as he's the competition, I'll listen to the Big Show, unless Larry Johnson is on. Then I'll listen to Oldies. I'm amazed that Felger's still on. He's had the same contrarian act for years. He's the most predictable jerk in the Boston Sports Media, even more than Borges.

      1. I think it comes down to the lesser of two evils, Eddie. Felger can be obnoxious and arrogant, but at least he won't talk over his callers. He even made a point on his show today that he takes stands on sports issues that you or anyone else can call him on later. Ordway's reputation is that he'll sit on the fence and when he does predict something that winds up going horribly wrong, he'll forget he said it in the first place. It would be great if there were other local listening options, but it's all we got.

        1. Both are perfectly logical ideas. But we should mention that as unbearable as Felger is, he doesn't spend most of the show talking about sandwiches and how much he loves food. Boy, WEEI is really competing. Politics in the morning, sports at noon (what a concept!), food in the late afternoon, and Manny bashing in the evening. Fail fail fail…

    2. Moss was just released from the Vikings. I know we dont want to hear Felger say I told you so but he was 100% right on this one. That doesnt mean he isnt a prick but he was ahead of everyone on Moss and the ultimate turn-around of this team.

      1. "ahead of everyone on Moss"???….Felger was bashing Moss in 2007 when Moss was catching 23 touchdown passes and 2008 when Moss had a very good year with Cassell was throwing him him the ball. Not ready to give Felger praise when it took 3 FREEKING YEARS for his "opinion" to FINALLY have some credibility……..If Belichick gets fired in 5 years (just play along) will that mean that Ron Borges was "ahead of everybody" ?

    1. The way I hear it, he needs to pass through the other 31 teams first. Wondering if anyone is going to gamble on him. This is usually the point where the Redskins do something stupid/expensive.

  2. "USA’s hot roster of hit series gives viewers something to warm up to as the days get shorter and the nights grow colder."

    Gag me with a spoon. Really? That is trite bullshit.
