The Gridiron and Beyond: Mike Flynn (Ep. 38)

This week on The Gridiron and Beyond, the voice of the New England Patriots, Bob Socci sits down with former NFL player and current 98.5 The Sports Hub host, Mike Flynn.

Mike discusses the dominance of the Patriots defense and, as a former NFL center, tells us how the combination of talent and scheme(s) challenge opponents.  He also explains the common denominators shared by great defenses of the recent past, including his own Baltimore Ravens teammates in 2000.

They also explore the potential effects of injuries on the Pats' offense, the early-season problems they've experienced in their running game and league-wide rash of penalties thus far this season.
