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 5, 2020

Tom Brady’s pending free agency has taken the sports world hostage, so that was our main topic on Thursday’s WISE Sports Radio NFL segment! Could Brady really leave the New England Patriots and sign with another team, such as the San Francisco 49ers? Should Bill Belichick be doing more to make his star quarterback feel wanted?

Pat Ryan and I also discussed the Carolina Panthers’ head-scratching trade, Dak Prescott’s contract situation with the Dallas Cowboys, and which prospects surprised and disappointed at the NFL Scouting Combine.

WISE Sports Radio NFL spot: Jan. 2, 2020

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.

WISE Sports Radio NFL segment: Dec. 19. 2019

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.
