Many NFL teams will go into the 2021 season with new quarterbacks under center. It’s probably not a surprise that one of them is the Houston Texans, who are starting Tyrod Taylor because of the nearly two dozen lawsuits Deshaun Watson faces alleging sexual assault and misconduct.
For our WISE Sports Radio NFL segment, we also discuss the San Francisco 49ers not announcing their starter, though Jimmy Garoppolo seems pretty happy with the decision. Why was Denver Broncos linebacker Bradley Chubb arrested? And is Patrick Mahomes the easy choice for NFL Most Valuable Player or are there any other viable candidates?
Mike Gore picking the Detroit Lions to beat the 49ers is certainly a choice and we had some fun with that.
I’m a Lions fan and wouldn’t make that bet. There’s just too much uncertainty on offense and defense with the Lions. A new quarterback in Jared Goff, new defensive scheme under coordinator Aaron Glenn, and many new players. Plus, we just don’t know what kind of head coach Dan Campbell is going to be.
