Many NFL teams will go into the 2021 season with new quarterbacks under center. It’s probably not a surprise that one of them is the Houston Texans, who are starting Tyrod Taylor because of the nearly two dozen lawsuits Deshaun Watson faces alleging sexual assault and misconduct.
For our WISE Sports Radio NFL segment, we also discuss the San Francisco 49ers not announcing their starter, though Jimmy Garoppolo seems pretty happy with the decision. Why was Denver Broncos linebacker Bradley Chubb arrested? And is Patrick Mahomes the easy choice for NFL Most Valuable Player or are there any other viable candidates?
The NFL does not want any games to be postponed or jeopardized due to COVID-19 this season and is leaning hard on players and coaches to get vaccinated because of it.
On our WISE Sports Radio football segment, Pat Ryan, Mike Gore, and I talk about that, along with Cole Beasley’s vaccine skepticism, Fred Warner’s big contract with the San Francisco 49ers, and Jerry Jones perhaps seeing the end with his Dallas Cowboys.
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.
Well, shit. I had almost all of the recording for today’s WISE Sports Radio NFL segment edited. That is, until I tried to delete five minutes after my spot and ended up deleting the whole recording. And as far as I can tell, there’s no way to get it back. Motherfu…!
But I did save a clip of Pat Ryan, Mike Gore, and I talking about the reported trade market for Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson and the two teams now apparently competing with the Carolina Panthers to make a deal for the young star.
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?
