With changes to the fall schedule, it’s been a while since we’ve talked football on WISE Sports Radio. But we popped on this week to discuss Matt Rhule’s job security with the Carolina Panthers and whether or not team owner David Tepper is being too patient with his head coach.
Looking around the NFL, we also covered Justin Herbert’s rib injury and his status for Week 3, Kenny Golladay unhappy with his playing time in New York, Bruce Arians getting a warning from the league, the Buffalo Bills-Miami Dolphins match-up, and how the San Francisco 49ers will perform with Jimmy Garoppolo at quarterback.
Starting off 0-2 is no way for a NFL team to get through a season if it intends to make the playoffs. For WISE Sports Radio‘s NFL segment, we picked the teams that can possibly turn their season around and those that are riding the downward spiral.
Also among our topics were Mike Gore’s Buffalo Bills, off to a 2-0 start with Josh Allen putting up huge passing numbers in his first two games. Is the artificial turf at MetLife Stadium dangerous for NFL players? And should Justin Herbert be the Los Angeles Chargers’ starting quarterback?
First off, for anyone interested, I’ve had issues trying to record my past two radio appearances. Last Thursday, a power outage meant I couldn’t use my computer. And on Monday, another audio track from a video played while I was recording, rendering about one-third of the segment unlistenable.
But I got it right for Thursday’s WISE Sports Radio NFL segment! Pat Ryan, Mike Gore, and I discuss how next week’s NFL Draft is being affected by the COVID-19 shutdown, if Oregon quarterback Justin Herbert could be selected before Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa, and actor Brian Dennehy.
(Apologies for the audio feed dropping out a couple of times while I was recording. Probably had too much stuff going on on my computer.)
For those of us in sports media, the NFL is thankfully still making some news that isn’t someone contracting COVID-19 or wondering when a postponed season will resume. (Although football is facing those questions now…)
On Thursday’s WISE Sports Radio NFL segment, Pat Ryan, Mike Gore, and I wonder if Antonio Brown is angling for a gig with the Baltimore Ravens, why no team has signed defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, and whether or not Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa and his recovering hip will be the second quarterback selected in the NFL Draft.
