WISE Sports Radio NFL hit: April 2, 2020

For those of us in sports media, the NFL is thankfully still making some news that isn’t someone contracting COVID-19 or wondering when a postponed season will resume. (Although football is facing those questions now…)

On Thursday’s WISE Sports Radio NFL segment, Pat Ryan, Mike Gore, and I wonder if Antonio Brown is angling for a gig with the Baltimore Ravens, why no team has signed defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, and whether or not Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa and his recovering hip will be the second quarterback selected in the NFL Draft.

WISE Sports Radio NFL segment: Feb. 20, 2020

On Thursday’s WISE Sports Radio NFL segment, Pat Ryan and I take a break from looking at snow to ask if Joe Burrow really wants to play for the Cincinnati Bengals. At the very least, he’s playing a tough negotiator.

Also, we praise Steelers coach Mike Tomlin, discuss the NFL’s proposed new playoff format and 17-game schedule — and all the money to come with those — and I almost break down talking about my Detroit Lions fandom.

WISE Sports Radio NFL spot: Feb. 13, 2020

Living in Carolina Panthers country, the pending rebuild of the team and whether or not it includes quarterback Cam Newton is a big topic. So that leads off Thursday’s WISE Sports Radio NFL segment.

Pat Ryan and I also discuss where Philip Rivers will play quarterback next, whether Taysom Hill is a starting NFL QB, the continuing Antonio Brown Apology Tour, and Jameis Winston’s nearsightedness.

WISE Sports Radio NFL hit: Feb. 6, 2020

Thursday’s WISE Sports Radio NFL segment began with a little bit of baseball with news that the trade between the Boston Red Sox and Los Angeles Dodgers involving Mookie Betts might not go through. That’s why baseball writers usually cover their asses by adding “pending physicals” at the end of tweets and reports. Not just a throwaway line!

On the football side, Pat Ryan, Mike Gore, and I discuss the Cleveland Browns calling Kareem Hunt and Odell Beckham Jr. into the principal’s office, Tom Brady’s possible new contract with the New England Patriots, and the Antonio Brown Apology Tour.

WISE Sports Radio spot: Jan. 23, 2020

With The WISE Guys taking Wednesday off, I didn’t do my usual baseball segment on WISE Sports Radio. But with the Baseball Hall of Fame announcing its 2020 class, we had to talk about Derek Jeter and Larry Walker being inducted (along with who might get to Cooperstown next year).

But we usually talk football on Thursdays, so Pat Ryan, Mike Gore and I discussed Eli Manning’s retirement (which led to some Pro Football Hall of Fame talk), the continuing downward spiral of Antonio Brown, and what improvements the Green Bay Packers need to make.

WISE Sports Radio NFL hit: Nov. 14, 2019

Colin Kaepernick has been the big story in the NFL during the past couple of days, leading into Week 11 of the season. The controversial quarterback who’s been blackballed from the NFL because of his activism on social issues is getting a chance to show what he still has in a workout this weekend.

Other Week 11 NFL topics discussed with Pat Ryan and Mike Gore on WISE Sports Radio include Indianapolis Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri and his increasingly diminishing skills, Thursday Night Football’s matchup between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cleveland Browns, Deshaun Watson vs. Lamar Jackson, and the return of Nick Foles to the Jacksonville Jaguars.
