In this week’s Bob Long Sports Radio Show, we previewed the Super Bowl, a rematch of Super XLII, Giants vs. Patriots. We asked the question, “What does Tom Brady need to do to become the best quarterback of all-time? We analyzed the matchup and the possibility of the Patriots playing without Rob Gronkowski (Start-21:10). Next, we talked about the impact and scope of Super Bowl commercials, and recounted some of our favorites from past years (21:10-33:45), analyzed the Peyton Manning saga with the Indianapolis Colts front office (33:45-51:30), and switched gears a bit to discuss the Kansas Jayhawks basketball program (51:30-1:05:16). On the other side of the commercial break, we discussed a few NFL storylines, including the hiring of Jim Caldwell as the quarterbacks coach in Baltimore and the Eagles’ decision to bring back Juan Castillo as the Defensive Coordinator, (1:07:15-1:16:55). We moved on to talk college basketball, including Bob’s Top 3 Overrated and Underrated teams (1:16:55-1:41:20) and the struggles of the Villanova Wildcats (1:41:20-1:45:50). We closed the show with baseball transaction discussion, including the retirement of Pat Burrell and the signing of Prince Fielder in Detroit (1:45:50-1:55:20) and an analysis of the great final of the Aussie Open between Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal (1:55:20-Finish).
