Welcome back master -- to this weekend -- welcome back with a punctured by the region of Tuscany in Italy which is where you they call this guy. Like I said Tuscany is the sponsor this week did you enjoy here career gotten Italy. When when my mom. Mom's got a lot of family back there my grandmother came over to the states which was twenties. So there. Big basketball country. Obviously you do you filed a blog from from your. Dad you know precedent -- it. Obviously right to access. You know it's going to be tough to follow one round those deals with. Right to the NFL do it all out of the Comcast. Survivor pool because of the Eagles last week. I got on a plane they were up 233 against the niners got off the plated lost. The magic Alex. Basically if -- weren't anything. Like this weekend 49ers to baton. -- the games that separate you can start doing. The opposite of my feelings -- true feeling because. I continually lose weight and I go with a what I really think so. I'm when I'm gonna say that the critical you don't -- -- -- say that the niners you're gonna win the -- take -- Tampa today. Because I think the niners. I like Josh Freeman I tell you what I like Josh Freeman. But I just I liked what I saw out of the 49ers offensive line finally started jail passed by the way. Couple weeks ago you were -- Jim Harbaugh. He's getting it done first personality why force. Took three. They weren't singletary had a great person they were one on one corner. Exactly -- premature. A little bit I don't know is it premature to I mean -- the crowd any crowd. Did it anyway Oakland at the Texans this is. This is a big game for India. This is why by the way before it's gonna win because -- -- -- incorporate Vernon Davis India is there are holes on the Raiders. Seriously now. 71. I but it takes the I hate to do this but I'm gonna do it. I've taken the Texans. Because. That's a tough place to win and. The. Schedule lightens up for the Raiders if that's three pretty winnable games so they'll lose this game then when -- -- -- I'll tell you -- the Raiders are gonna win because the Raiders weakness in my opinion is their secondary but that's not going to be a problem because Andre Johnson. Is going to be a scratch this week the raiders' weaknesses their run defense. I think to the Texans seminary in Boston. And he's been hamstrings and it's tightened up on this. All right you've taken the Raiders I would but Jets past is your Jets fan I've taken the pats of course I'm taking the Jets. Games in New England. Can we just -- wind took it to Raiders and pats should.
