It’s Episode #2 of The REAL THING Patriots Podcast, and what a crazy mess we have to sort through after the surprising loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.  It wasn’t so much that the Patriots lost–it was how they lost.  Sloppy play down the stretch, communication errors, and uncharacteristic performances all around.  As Bill Belichick likes to say, they didn’t play well enough to win, they didn’t coach well enough to win.  Nothing was good enough.  Gotta get back to work and get better.

Former Patriots linebacker & special teamer Matt Chatham dives into the game film of that Chiefs loss and sifts through the rubble to find what real problems exist, and what are just hot-take scrap heap stuff that weren’t real problems–and won’t be issues going forward.

Next, the show is joined by former Saints running back Deuce McAllister, who works for the New Orleans radio network as the color commentator for their games.  He offers some great insight into the frame of mind down there as that team looks to bounce back as well after an ugly loss on the road to the Vikings.

We talk Adrian Peterson and where he fits in the running game moving forward.  We talk Saints offensive line issues that they continue to deal with.  And we talk disappointments in their defense and how they can turn it around and get closer to the promise they showed in the preseason.

Packed show, hope you enjoy!

*Sorry in advance for the mic audio not being studio quality for Chatham–we had some technical difficulties that we hope will be tuned up for next week’s show.
