WISE Sports Radio NFL hit: July 9, 2020

Philadelphia Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson stepped into it this week when he posted some anti-Semitic quotes on social media. He says he didn’t realize how those were interpreted and vowed to take steps to educate himself and work with the Jewish community in Philadelphia.

For WISE Sports Radio‘s NFL segment, Pat Ryan and I discussed whether the Eagles should release Jackson or if he should be taken at his word. We also talked about the massive contract Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes signed and continuing efforts to get the Washington Redskins to change their team name.

WISE Sports Radio NFL hit: May 14, 2020

The NFL doesn’t have to worry about its regular season for another four months, so the immediate concern isn’t the same as baseball currently faces. But will we really have football in the fall? Carolina Panthers owner David Tepper is a believer.

On Thursday’s WISE Sports Radio NFL segment, Pat Ryan, Mike Gore, and I look at all the obstacles to clear. Additionally, we talk about former Michigan defensive lineman Taco Charlton, the XFL feud between Oliver Luck and Vince McMahon, and the Los Angeles Rams’ new uniforms.

WISE Sports Radio NFL hit: Feb. 6, 2020

Thursday’s WISE Sports Radio NFL segment began with a little bit of baseball with news that the trade between the Boston Red Sox and Los Angeles Dodgers involving Mookie Betts might not go through. That’s why baseball writers usually cover their asses by adding “pending physicals” at the end of tweets and reports. Not just a throwaway line!

On the football side, Pat Ryan, Mike Gore, and I discuss the Cleveland Browns calling Kareem Hunt and Odell Beckham Jr. into the principal’s office, Tom Brady’s possible new contract with the New England Patriots, and the Antonio Brown Apology Tour.

WISE Sports Radio NFL spot: Jan. 30, 2020

Super Bowl time! Naturally, Thursday’s WISE Sports Radio NFL segment focused on the Super Bowl LIV match-up between the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs.

But Pat Ryan, Mike Gore, and I also discussed NFL commissioner Roger Goodell acknowledging that the league’s “Rooney Rule,” mandating that teams interview minority candidates for head-coaching positions, hasn’t worked as hoped. Oh, and favorite Super Bowl party dish!

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.
