Missed part of the show? Heres a rewind of the program on December 4, 2013.

The Mariotti Show streams live M-F noon to 3 ET.

Hour One on The Jay Mariotti Show: December 4, 2013:

ELLSBURY/YANKEES

-- $254 m for Ellsbury and McCann is overspending

-- Desperate, so much for Hal Steinbrenner's tax threshold

-- Both NY tabloids call him ``Ellsbury Dough Boy''

-- Ellsbury is 30, will make $22 m when 37

-- Can he stay health, produce reliable power?

-- Overextending veterans reason Yankees in current fix

-- They aren't done. Cano? Choo? Kuroda? Tanaka?

-- Whither Cano? Take less $ or $200 m in Seattle?

-- Yankees do business with Boras, diss Jay-Z

-- So many ex-Red Sox have wound up with Yankees

-- Crisis: shrinking TV ratings, Rivera/Pettitte gone, Jeter in decline, A-Rod saga, missed playoffs second time 19 years, Red Sox win third time in 10 years.

MIKE TOMLIN

-- NFL comes down on him as it should for impeding kick return

-- $100,000, possible forfeiture of draft picks

-- Integrity ravaged. Could have gotten someone hurt too

-- Should be removed from sacred competition committee

JASON KIDD

-- In news again, for wrong reasons again

-- Demotes assistant Frank to lackey job

-- Bad idea, signing Kidd for name value

-- Now there's no assistant with NBA head-coaching experience

-- Injured team, but Kidd is a mess

-- Nets most expensive NBA team ever, absolute debacle

 

Hour Two on The Jay Mariotti Show: December 4, 2013:

ELLSBURY/CANO

-- Recap story

-- Envision a Yankees lineup

-- Jay-Z should take deep breath, accept that Boras beat him

-- He should tell Cano to stay in New York, not die in Seattle

TOMLIN

NFL OFFICIALS

-- Are they too old for a fast, high-tech game?

-- $10-billion league has too much $ for aging part-timers

-- Wonder if mentally in shape when mistakes late in games?

-- Hire younger refs full-time, work for NFL in offseason

NFL RECORDS

-- Offensive heyday

-- Safety rules a big reason

BUT LOT OF LOUSY FOOTBALL

-- Defensive play sometimes non-existent

-- Injury epidemic

-- War of attrition, ACL tears at all-time high

-- Lack of total roster development, need development league

-- Backup QBs should be priority

TEBOW

-- Weighing three TV offers

-- Most-searched athlete of 2013, hasn't played a down

-- Quietly working out in LA, still believes he can be NFL QB

-- He and Newton, careers have flip-flopped since Florida days

COACHES ON HOT SEAT

-- Kubiak, Shanahan, Frazier, Schiano, Ryan, Munchak, Allen, Philbin

-- Where does Gruden best fit? Washington, with Griffin. Houston, with possible No. 1 pick in Bridgewater. Maybe Miami, with built-in foundation and Tannehill.

-- USC inquired about Gruden, but he wants NFL job
