Sports Illustrated Senior Writer Michael Rosenberg and Rich discuss his in-depth profile of Trevor Lawrence and reveals what makes the Clemson QB tick, how Lawrence’s maturity and even-keeled mindset will allow him to handle losing more often than he’s used to, why Lawrence would have been a great fit with the Jets and resistant to the lure of New York’s distractions, and which story from his SI piece that didn’t make it into the final version.
Rich reflects on the 21-year anniversary of the Patriots drafting Tom Brady and how the obscure 6th round draft pick transformed himself into the NFL’s GOAT quarterback.
The guys dust of their “Higher Register” segment with sorta-semi-hot-but-more-tepid-to-doubtful takes on the Celtics’ chances to win the East, TJ’s sports card collection obsession, Tony LaRussa’s impact on the White Sox, and if Mike Del Tufo really should DJ Rich’s son’s bar mitzvah.
