WISE Sports Radio NFL talk: Texans starting Tyrod, Bradley Chubb’s driving, 49ers’ QB, MVP predictions

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.

Aaron Rodgers’ feud with the Green Bay Packers has hijacked the NFL offseason. So naturally, we had to talk about him on our WISE Sports Radio NFL segment. Is Rodgers serious about wanting to play for another team? Would the Packers really trade the reigning NFL Most Valuable Player?

We also discussed the fallout from the 2021 NFL Draft. Which teams improved themselves? Which teams fell short of expectations? The Detroit Lions and Buffalo Bills got a bit more spotlight, ceding to the favorite teams of me and co-host Mike Gore.

WISE Sports Radio NFL spot: April 30, 2020

On Thursday’s WISE Sports Radio NFL segment, Pat Ryan, Mike Gore, and I discuss the Green Bay Packers and Philadelphia Eagles quarterback situations after they used high draft selections on new QBs. And we look at where Andy Dalton might land after being released by the Cincinnati Bengals.
