WISE Sports Radio football talk: Urban Meyer done, Daniel Snyder allegations, COVID outbreaks throughout league

The Urban Meyer era is over in Jacksonville, and before the embattled coach could even finish a full NFL season. What was the final straw with Jags team owner Shad Khan and where does Meyer go from here?

On our WISE Sports Radio NFL segment, we also discuss Washington Football Team owner Daniel Snyder reportedly interfering with the league’s investigation into sexual misconduct allegations, COVID-19 hitting several teams hard, and Germany courting the NFL.

WISE Sports Radio talk: Tribute to Keith Jarrett, Urban Meyer’s bungling, Bill Belichick reigns again

Very sad news in the Asheville community with the passing of longtime sports columnist Keith Jarrett. WISE Sports Radio host Pat Ryan and his guest co-host Mike Gore knew Keith well and devoted Thursday’s show to their friend. Asheville Citizen-Times columnist John Boyle wrote a wonderful tribute to his colleague. If you want to know what Keith meant to Asheville, John says it all.

Since we usually talk about the NFL on Thursdays, we still discussed some topics like Urban Meyer’s continued mishandling of the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Buffalo Bills’ struggles, and Bill Belichick returning the New England Patriots to prominence. But really, the show was about Keith.

WISE Sports Radio NFL talk: Urban denies USC, Eagles soar, Bills flop hard

Urban Meyer taking the Jacksonville Jaguars job was always a head-scratcher when major programs like Texas and USC figured to have openings. So when USC fired coach Clay Helton this week, it was natural to speculate that Meyer — who’s been enormously successful at Utah, Florida, and Ohio State — would be a good fit in Los Angeles. But he just took the Jaguars job!

On our WISE Sports Radio NFL segment, Pat Ryan, Mike Gore, and I discuss whether Meyer really could bolt for the Trojans. Other topics include the Dallas Cowboys’ defensive line issues, the Buffalo Bills’ disappointing Week 1 loss to the Steelers, the Philadelphia Eagles’ surprising win, and Taylor Heinicke’s debut as quarterback for the Washington Football Team.

WISE Sports Radio NFL talk: 49ers’draft rumors, Panthers trade buzz, Tim Tebow-Urban Meyer reunion (maybe)

The NFL Draft is finally here! In the hours leading up to pro football’s annual player selection meeting, there are still plenty of trade rumors. Anybody moving up? Who’s moving down? And everyone wants to know what the San Francisco 49ers will do with the No. 3 overall selection.

We also love talking about Tim Tebow on WISE Sports Radio, so news that he worked out for the Jacksonville Jaguars and his former college coach Urban Meyer to perhaps catch on as a tight end is news that definitely intrigued us. Probably better for him to get back to football than trying baseball.
