Urban Meyer coming out of retirement, leaving a comfortable TV gig with Fox Sports, to coach the Jacksonville Jaguars? According to reports, it’s virtually a done deal. Can Meyer work the same magic he did at Ohio State and Florida? With the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL Draft, 11 selections overall, and $100 million in salary cap space, he has an opportunity to remake the Jags in his vision.
On Thursday’s WISE Sports Radio NFL segment, Pat Ryan, Chris Smith, and I discuss Meyer’s move, coaches the New York Jets and Philadelphia Eagles are considering, and go over the four NFL Divisional Round playoff games this weekend.
No sport encourages overreaction more than football. After just one week, one game, fans and media are ready to declare a team a success or failure. And in some cases, that quick verdict is probably justified.
On WISE Sports Radio’s NFL segment, Pat Ryan, Mike Gore, and I discussed the chances of New York Jets coach Adam Gase keeping his job for long, the supposed tension between Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Bruce Arians and quarterback Tom Brady, and the Buffalo Bills’ season-opening win.
Any time “New England Patriots” and “videotaping” are in a story, the team’s ugly past with the “Spygate” scandal is going to be revived.

On Thursday’s WISE Sports Radio segment, Pat Ryan, Mike Gore, and I talk about that, Le’Veon Bell and the New York Jets, two Heisman Trophy-winning Oklahoma quarterbacks facing each other, and the Thursday Night Football game between the Jets and Baltimore Ravens.
It’s been a week since Myles Garrett hit Mason Rudolph in the head with his own helmet, and the NFL is now handing out punishment to each of the Cleveland Browns and Pittsburgh Steelers players involved in the brawl. But first, Garrett is trying to plead his case to the NFL.
On Thursday’s WISE Sports Radio NFL segment, Pat Ryan, Charlie Metcalf, and I discuss Garrett’s argument along with Le’Veon Bell’s outrage over the league’s “random” drug testing policy, and the respective futures of Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford and NFL hopeful Tua Tagovailoa.
