Pat Ryan, Mike Gore, and I addressed that speculation before getting to the big contracts signed this week. Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry and Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett received big paydays, and Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is looking at a potentially very lucrative future.
The NFL reacted to outrage over a bad pass interference call in the 2018 NFC Championship Game by making it reviewable under instant replay. But officials reviewed the plays so badly, rarely overturning even an apparent call, that the league has decided to nix it for the 2020 season.
On Thursday’s WISE Sports Radio NFL segment, Pat Ryan and I talk about that rule, the decision not to add a “sky judge” for instant replay this coming season, a left tackle heading for a big payday, the quieter Cleveland Browns, and… my favorite Michigan player in the NFL.
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.
First WISE Sports Radio appearance of 2020! And it’s a NFL Thursday with plenty to talk about on coaching searches and Wild Card Playoff weekend, so that’s fun.
Former Carolina Panthers coach Ron Rivera is now the head guy for the Washington Redskins. Will his authority extend into the front office? Why is Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones taking so long to fire coach Jason Garrett? And we make picks for this weekend’s four playoff games.
Going into an exciting Week 16 on the NFL schedule, the Jacksonville Jaguars got a head start on their offseason by firing Tom Coughlin, the team’s vice president of football operations. Coughlin is a legendary coach in Jacksonville and may be a Hall of Famer for two Super Bowl championships with the New York Giants, but he was a terrible executive in his second tour with the Jags.
For Thursday’s WISE Sports Radio NFL segment, Pat Ryan, Mike Gore, and I also discuss Josh Gordon being suspended yet again for violating the league’s drug policy, Odell Beckham Jr. saying he wants to stay with the Cleveland Browns, and a very important Cowboys-Eagles game that could determine a playoff bid.
