Sports by Brooks has a review of the first show, and it's not pretty. Brooks calls Patrick "A self-important dullard," and continues:
This morning the show moved at the same pace as a Herman Edwards' sideline (brain) synapse. We hate the fake morning show cackling as much as you do. But in the two hours we listened, we laughed exactly zero times. ...I didn't hear the show, but I agree that Patrick needs someone to work with. The high point of Patrick's career was when he worked with Keith Olbermann on SportsCenter, and that's because his function should be as a straight man who can set up a funnier, more charismatic partner. As a solo act, Patrick won't succeed.
We're not completely condemning Patrick's latest foray into hosting a sports radio show, but it's painfully obvious that he doesn't have the charisma and/or personality to carry his own production without a talented on-air ensemble around him. If changes aren't made to slick things up, the show has no chance to be high-profile.
