WISE Sports Radio NFL segment: March 26, 2020

UNC Asheville coach Mike Morrell guest-hosted with Pat Ryan for Thursday’s WISE Guys show on WISE Sports Radio. So we got some coaching and roster-building insight for our NFL segment. (UNCA is really lucky to have Coach Morrell and women’s coach Brenda Kirkpatrick Brown on campus and in town. Both great coaches and great people.)

We discussed Cam Newton’s chances of catching on with another NFL team after the Carolina Panthers released him this week, the approach new coach Matt Rhule is taking with the roster, and how much the Tampa Bay Buccaneers might improve with Tom Brady.

WISE Sports Radio NFL spot: March 19, 2020

While sports are on hiatus due to the coronavirus crisis, there was one big development that still held some drama and suspense: Would Tom Brady leave the New England Patriots and end his NFL career with another team?Now we know. Brady will be the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ quarterback next season.

Of course, that led Thursday’s WISE Sports Radio NFL segment. Pat Ryan, Mike Gore, and I discussed other big free agent signings and trades that have happened this week, including Teddy Bridgewater signing with the Carolina Panthers, Philip Rivers going to the Indianapolis Colts, and a bizarre allegation toward Houston Texans coach and general manager Bill O’Brien.

WISE Sports Radio NFL spot: Nov. 7, 2019

Most of the top headlines going into Week 10 of the NFL schedule are happening off the field. Could the Los Angeles Chargers be moving to London? Has Cam Newton played his last game for the Carolina Panthers? Did Mitchell Trubisky really ask for TVs at the Chicago Bears headquarters to be turned from ESPN and Fox Sports because he didn’t want to hear constant criticism?

We discussed that and more on Thursday’s WISE Sports Radio NFL segment with hosts Pat Ryan and Mike Gore. (Mike’s a Bills fan, so we also talked about their chances.)
