WISE Sports Radio football talk: 2022 NFL coaching carousel, Wild Card playoffs begin

Successful recording! After a couple of strikeouts, my recording app, computer, and timing all worked out for what should be entirely routine by now. Pardon the baseball analogy introducing football content.

For WISE Sports Radio‘s NFL segment, we discuss Brian Flores’ surprising firing by the Miami Dolphins and the coaching vacancies for the Chicago Bears, New York Giants, Denver Broncos, and Minnesota Vikings. Three of those teams are also looking for a general manager. And we take a look at the Wild Card playoff weekend.

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. Why was Denver Broncos linebacker Bradley Chubb arrested? And is Patrick Mahomes the easy choice for NFL Most Valuable Player or are there any other viable candidates?

WISE Sports Radio talk: Gerrit Cole’s filibuster, Deshaun Watson wants Denver Broncos, Jared Goff empowerment

Thursdays on WISE Sports Radio, we usually talk football. But we began this segment responding to Gerrit Cole’s long, bizarre answer to being asked if he uses Spider Tack to get a better grip on a baseball. The longer he talked, the guiltier he looked.

When we got to football, we discussed former New York Giants coach Jim Fassel passing away this week, Aaron Rodgers’ Green Bay Packers teammates supporting him, Deshaun Watson saying he wants to be traded to the Denver Broncos, and Jared Goff liking his new coaches with the Detroit Lions.

WISE Sports Radio football clip: Deshaun Watson’s trade market and off-field allegations

Well, shit. I had almost all of the recording for today’s WISE Sports Radio NFL segment edited. That is, until I tried to delete five minutes after my spot and ended up deleting the whole recording. And as far as I can tell, there’s no way to get it back. Motherfu…!

But I did save a clip of Pat Ryan, Mike Gore, and I talking about the reported trade market for Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson and the two teams now apparently competing with the Carolina Panthers to make a deal for the young star.
