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.
Quarterback Deshaun Watson is facing bigger problems than whether or not the Houston Texans will trade him. And the many sexual assault and harassment allegations against him are now costing him endorsements.
On Asheville’s WISE Sports Radio, Pat Ryan, Mike Gore, and I discussed Watson, reaction over the Carolina Panthers trading for quarterback Sam Darnold, and the latest NFL Draft rumors.
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.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers (handily) won Super Bowl LV and the 2020-21 NFL season has finished. But we still had plenty to talk about on our WISE Sports Radio NFL segment.
Why have the Houston Texans seemingly put their team operation in the hands of an underqualified former team chaplain? Are the Philadelphia Eagles asking for too much in a Carson Wentz trade? And besides Trevor Lawrence, who are the top quarterback prospects in the 2021 NFL Draft?
With the Super Bowl on Sunday, we naturally talked about The Big Game on this week’s WISE Sports Radio NFL segment. I picked my winner, which will almost certainly be wrong. (I should start keeping track of my terrible predictions.)
And being in the Carolina Panthers’ market, we discuss whether or not our local NFL team can make a trade for Houston Texans superstar quarterback Deshaun Watson. Bringing back Watson, who starred at Clemson, would certainly be popular, not to mention it would give the Panthers a top QB for years to come.
