Ever since I began talking about the NFL on WISE Sports Radio, cornerback Jalen Ramsey has been a topic. The guy just didn’t want to play for the Jacksonville Jaguars anymore (disappointing Jason Mendoza) and was going to claim injury (back, knee, ankle, etc.) or come up with another excuse (the birth of his second child) until he was traded to another team. Ramsey was finally dealt to the Los Angeles Rams, which means he probably won’t be a regular topic for us anymore — unless he gives us another reason.
Once again, producer Jordan DeVere filled in for the vacationing Pat Ryan, co-hosting with longtime Asheville High assistant football coach Charlie Metcalf. We also discussed Detroit Lions fans buying billboards to rage over the bad calls that cost them Monday night’s game versus the Packers. The Marcus Mariota era is over with the Tennessee Titans, and the Carolina Panthers have a dilemma if Cam Newton is ready to play. And we looked at Thursday night’s matchup between the Kansas City Chiefs and Denver Broncos.
I talked a bit too long on each topic, so didn’t get a chance to mention a must-win for the Dallas Cowboys against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night, San Francisco 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan facing the Washington Redskins (for whom he was an assistant), and a big AFC South clash between the Houston Texans and Indianapolis Colts as Week 7 storylines to follow.
Hey, there’s only so much time on the radio. But once again, it was fun talking to Jordan and Charlie.
Thanks to WISE Sports Radio for allowing me to post this on my site, along with Mars Hill University (which sponsors the stream), the aforementioned Jordan Devere, and D.C. Creasman Jewelers for sponsoring my NFL segment.
