WISE Sports Radio football talk: Testing Tua, Le’Veon lashes out, Jimmy Kimmel’s bowl game

It’s mini-camp season in the NFL and most players look good — such as Carolina Panthers quarterback Sam Darnold. But Miami Dolphins signal-caller Tua Tagovailoa threw five interceptions in a rainy practice. Is that reason for concern?

For our WISE Sports Radio football segment, Pat Ryan, Mike Gore, and I also discuss Le’Veon Bell’s animus towards Kansas City Chiefs coach Andy Reid, Sam Darnold, the NFL’s new COVID-19 protocols for unvaccinated players, and Jimmy Kimmel getting his name on a college football bowl game.

WISE Sports Radio NFL spot: April 16, 2020

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.

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.

WISE Sports Radio NFL segment: Nov. 21, 2019

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.
