7:19 am
eli putting his arms up no, we don't want brady to do this. watch, 87 coming and trailing the play and just misses it tony, we are going to diagram that play here in the second, 21-17 the final, eli and the hall of fame i think so you hate to pinpoint 1 or 2 but that is what we do. we will take a look at the first one what i thought this was this was a game changing play, wes welker usually makes it 90 of 100 times. people say he threw it behind him he didn't he threw it away from the safety that is why he does have to do the body adjustment see the reaction from his teammates they know they had a punt on that drive and ultimately the giants came back and got the touchdown one more look at it, welker is kicking himself this morning
7:20 am
knowing if he catches that it is 3 points more likely 7 and giants may never have got on the ball yet they only had one time out left. >> the other guy, and the big question mark was rob a huge part of the patriot offence tony the question i ask should he even have played he has a high ankle sprain. >> reminded me of super bowl years ago where they put i can't remember the guy they put in a guy who couldn't see, someone was in -- poked his eyes out. >> was it wrestling? like the three stooges? >> he was in there because you have to account for -- >> like a decoy. >> yeah. >> well, we saw the first play brady had the one interception he had and couldn't jump, here is the end of the game there he is again, that ankle, he gets no lift he can't move. >> can't do it. >> it is just like boy literally a game of six inches here one more look at it here they bat the ball down. >> could have done it.
7:21 am
>> on a good ankle, i think he makes that play. i mean again it is just happenstance it comes down to two plays he probably normally makes and couldn't make it there. so you are right i want to find out who got poked in the eye fascinating story. >> i think it was a buffalo bill. >> is that right? >> yeah, we will find out. >> thomas couldn't find his helmet. >> yeah,. >> any way. i thought the game got off to a weird start and i thought this -- >> sets the tone for an odd game. 21-17 looks like a traditional score it was anything but. right. >> extra point. >> very good we will talk about this some more. >> next hour. i am dispointed in you i will tell you why next hour >> i predicted the giants. >> i take that back that was just tucker barnes. >> i predicted the giants by four points. >> did you really. >> all right. >> that is it for us now what

mitt romney is leading the pack of republican presidential nominees. joining us now with the latest on the campaign trail, staff writer at roll call quickly becoming a friend of the show good to see you. >> good to see you again. >> nevada, this is huge mitt romney is on a roll. yeah, mitt romney definitely solidified his roll as front runner this race after nevada where he got twice as many votes as newt gingrich but if this was a football game we are still in the first half. newt gingrich made it clear he is staying in the game hoping some of the southern states coming up in march are going to help him and make him kind of the conservative alternative to romney, as far as voters go, at this point, either they solidify against romney and decide he is the right candidate to go against
7:37 am
president obama or. >> any thought behind that mitt romney is a name we are familiar with from the last go around of presidential campaigning any reason why he is surging? is his message resonating? as you know elections are about money and mitt romney has a lot of it and has a lot of support from super packs gingrich has sort of been running almost an aggressive campaign, running on his own santorum and paul lag on the numbers i think voters are also looking for who can beat president obama in the general election and i think more and more they see mitt romney as among the four left in the race most likely to be the president. >> let's talk about rick santorum and ron paul where are they now? what are their camps likely doing right now. >> still pretty determined to stay in the race for ron paul this is about getting as many delegates as he can ahead of the convention he is in minnesota trying to get some sort of support there, santorum
7:38 am
is in colorado, also focussing on minnesota where he has kind of good numbers i think at this point in the game what they can do is if they do well in those states they can take away, romney's surge and undermine what is really becoming kind of his nomination. which is what we always see in politics does that help or hurt when you are looking to you know, be the sitting president. >> yeah, i think the democrats are pretty happy this race has gone on as long as it has but mitt romney, said the longer this goes on the more prepared we are in the general election. >> okay and coming up next main, how does mitt romney do in new england? >> mitt romney does great there, he is a former massachusetts governor that is really kind of his territory. >> that is the next contest, let's switch gears a little bit and it is almost in the vein of politicians this reversele we saw from the susan g komen

8:22 am
makes beltre sense to just -- better sense to just get a free checking account with a credit union or bank and start a financial relationship i think these cards encourage and target, a financial under class they are under banked or unbanked and 25% of americans, that are under banked or unbanked you don't want to encourage this sort of non- relationship with the bank because you are going to need it down the road. >> right. >> prepaid debit cards is there a line you can tell us about this? good idea bad idea. >> bad idea. bad idea. >> okay check out jennifer's blog, again it is called dollars and streaks. we are talking money this is jennifer streaks, financial analyst and author and blogger thanks for being here. >> over to you >> i didn't know what those celebrity cards were that is good information thank you very much. >> 8:22 a.m. on monday morning not too long ago he was running for mayor, today suleman brown will be in

8:36 am
social media and how to use it in a natural disaster the main tip is become familiar with all of these flat forms before the disaster occurs because often when a crisis happens we can't get cell phone service in many cases like we saw just last year in march during the tsunami in japan people were using twitter as a means to communicate become familiar with these platforms and become comfortable with texting everyone in the family should know how the text and reach each other in the event of an emergency how to upload picturevideo, it is important to let people know where you are. >> i think your message is have a plan, so that you know what to do in the event of some of these emergencies one of the out consider the whole family including pets. >> that's right and every chapter of my book i included a special section for pets and i really went out of my way to make sure that it is specific to the chapter for example in
8:37 am
the tornado chapter i interviewed a veterinarian from kansas who treated animals injured in tornadoes you will find specific advice one point i want to make is that, many people don't know this is the winter season and more dogs are lost, in the winter season than any other season because their sense of smell can be compromised when the ground is covered can snow you want to make sure your pet id tags are up-to-date and also practice your evacuation plan including your pets make sure your pet knows how to get into their carrier case fairly easily. you can train your pet so they will be comfortable doing that. a lot of shelters don't accept animals if you come with a cardboard box filled with a puppy or kitten, you will have a problem. >> the book with lots of great advice is extreme weather bonnie snider thank you for joining us this morning the book is available now. >> see you again. 8:37 a.m. 30 degrees on this monday
