@danmateus @CSNNE @pfwpaul @985TheSportsHub I literally haven't heard a single person predict that or even insinuate it could happen.

@Badseedz187 yeah, unfortunately haven't gotten as much opportunity to look deep at them. Maybe next week :)

@Nikhil_Laksh they don't just allow them to red zone, competitive to that point. It's just they don't over-commit in getting to that point

Wow. They already remodeled the White House. https://t.co/oVJpat7bDv

From old #Steelers study notes, pre-snap movement w/ Antonio Brown used to be a BIG thing in red zone. Curious if they use more vs #Steelers

On this note, both KC & Pitt (facing Hill) seemed content to directionally kick OB or shorter hang-time, fair catch… https://t.co/NqL4Oxx29m

Going up on @periscopeco in 1 minute ... My kids/dog might interrupt.

@aburt63 potential there, sure. But struggles on the road stretch throughout season. They've struggled coming up w/ consistent answers

@StacyGSG I'm in. My only question: if I survive and become a convert, can I teach Greeny how to grill?

Last year I broke down this sick Antonio Brown PR TD. Ryan Allen, #Patriots coverage must limit opportunities Sunday https://t.co/Pn1iWaOofm

RT @CSNNE: Trash Talk: Is Antonio Brown or Le’Veon Bell the bigger threat? - @PFWPaul @JumboHart #Patriots #Patriots https://t.co/jziIHlCYJ9

@aburt63 no red zone TDs though. Having a real hard time seeing past last week. Good in field, less so when it counts.

@BostonPatriot86 TV picks have no consequence, it's just low-study theater. Sometimes they're just fading their counterparts to win on picks

@Nikhil_Laksh exactly. Better philosophy take w/ Patriots offense, why the do it. With = amount of possessions,they almost always score more

@Nikhil_Laksh obviously neither is good, but they roll w/ lesser or two evils, typically. KC thinking similar...my old coach, Bob Sutton

@Nikhil_Laksh naw, philosophy is more field yards are OK if ya tighten on high-red in. Overplay low & give up big pass play, don't want that

RT @Greg_Brody: @jwiggs85 tell Melissa if she comes down with the flu it shouldn't effect her ability to be on radio. Obviously it will eff…

    Coincidentally was in Europe for the Canonizations last weekend, this was not our intent, however as we made all our reservations across this continent it just worked out that way. We arrived Sat. evening, after taking the train from Paris. Some observations:

    Rome was mobbed with "pilgrims" from all over the world..

    Was not aware of the whole concept of nationalism and Catholicism, when we arrived we figured that we would go to the Colosseum as the horde would be focused on the Canonization, wrong.. on the way to the Forum, there were huge TV's set up along the way with many folks who had traveled to Rome for this event. There are quite a few Polish folks waving their flags, wearing their hats and signs all along the way. This pretty much continued up to Thursday, when we left, wherever we went there will these folks many dressed in folk costumes very proud of what had occurred. Saw quite a few Polish Folks crying during the mass, many had camped out all night to get close to the TV screens.

    We found out after we reserved everything about the canonizations, so we felt it would be best to book a "tour" for the Sistine Chapel and St. Peters, it sucked.. a caveat was that everything was extremely crowded, but the tour leader was more of an art historian and did not know the function of the bldg. that housed the Vatican Museum or even St. Peter's. When we got to St. Peter's she tried to push us quickly through the church, past the "Pieta"... and we had had it, so we turned in our listening devices and ventured on our own. Only to be hastened by Vatican employees to move along. F.. them this was "bucket list" trip, so we took our time and took a lot of pix.

    The police/military presence was obvious and heavy, apparently there had been some "Austerity" protests and they were very prepared to avoid anything "stepping off" as they did not want to be embarrassed in front of all of the visitors.

    We left on Thursday AM, and there were still hordes of pilgrims present, still waving flags.. it was less crowded on Thursday, later we figured out it was May Day... Duh!!!

    If you ever make it back to Rome, you have to go see the "Ignazio". It is a small church near the Pantheon with a 3-D mural on the ceiling. I thought it was more impressive than the Sistine Chapel (and you can take pictures).

    Rome is filled with beautiful churches, in our wanderings came across many. What was interesting is that they all seem maintained and supported, guess due to age they probably all have some form of endowments...

    I stayed in a small apt. in Trastevere, and the Santa Maria in Trastevere Basilica, was about 100 steps from where we lived. The first night we were there walked into a service led by the Community of St. Edigio. It was quite interesting as it was led by a mulicultural group of priests and deacons. Never saw so many tan and brown folks on a Catholic Altar, needed a few women though.. after the service the congregation clapped..

    Inside of the Basilica, it was started in the 3rd century and is known for its mosaics....

    Beautiful!

    Glad to hear that it was well attended. It seemed like most of the churches we visited in Italy were museums.

    St. Mark's in Venice was equally spectacular: ceiling was covered in mosaics and gold leaf.
