Going into Week 4 of the 2022 NFL season, there was no bigger story than Tua Tagovailoa’s concussion and his treatment after likely suffering a previous brain injury in Week 3. (I wrote about how the Sunday NFL pregame shows handled the story for my weekly Barrett Sports Media column.)
On this week’s WISE Sports Radio NFL segment, we discuss the latest on Tua’s situation, an on-field protestor getting bulldozed by linebacker Bobby Wagner, a former politician sticking up for Washington Commanders owner Daniel Snyder, and why the Los Angeles Rams should be concerned.
The Los Angeles Rams have won the Super Bowl and the 2021-22 NFL season is finally over. But there is still plenty of offseason news to cover, which we got to on our WISE Sports Radio football spot.
Kevin O’Connell (not Jim Harbaugh – whew!) is the Minnesota Vikings’ new coach. Mike McDaniel is the captain now for the Miami Dolphins. And Sean McVay and Aaron Donald apparently put rumors of their retirement down while celebrating the Rams’ championship.
Major League Baseball team owners and players still seem to have no urgency toward reaching a new collective bargaining agreement in time for the 2022 season to start. That leads our WISE Sports Radio baseball segment. Does anyone think MLB commissioner Rob Manfred is doing a good job here?
Also, Andre Dawson and Ferguson Jenkins were among the players who did not like retiring umpire Joe West. Tragic news for former major-leaguer Jeremy Giambi. And how does a Detroit Lions fan feel about Matthew Stafford winning the Super Bowl with the Los Angeles Rams?
After a one-week break to focus on my new job, I’m back on WISE Sports Radio for some baseball talk (with a little bit of football mixed in).
Baseball team owners and players are back at the negotiating table. Will this end Major League Baseball’s lockout in time for Spring Training? Robot umpires — or an automated strike zone — will be used this coming season in Triple-A. Will we see this in MLB? And as a Detroit Lions fan, is it bittersweet to see Matthew Stafford one game away from the Super Bowl with the Los Angeles Rams?
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.
