Back on WISE Sports Radio after Monday’s baseball spot was unexpectedly canceled with some NFL talk. Matt Rhule was finally, mercifully fired as Carolina Panthers head coach. But team owner David Tepper raised many eyebrows during his press conference to defend his decision.
Among our other topics: Who could the Panthers hire next? Washington Commanders owner Daniel Snyder threatens to expose his colleagues if they try to force him out. Commanders coach Ron Rivera is getting testy. And Davante Adams could be in some trouble for shoving a photographer.
After being off a few more weeks than expected, our NFL segment is back on WISE Sports Radio. (However, we’ll be doing it every other week until November so Pat Ryan can save his energy for high school football season.)
This week, we ask if the Carolina Panthers could trade quarterback Sam Darnold after he lost the starting job to Baker Mayfield. Should the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been more transparent about Tom Brady’s absence from training camp? And how fun is Detroit Lions coach Dan Campbell on HBO’s Hard Knocks?
The upcoming 2022 season will be an important one for the Carolina Panthers with head coach Matt Rhule’s job likely at stake. The team’s quarterback play will be a major factor in success or failure, and Sam Darnold isn’t inspiring much confidence. Will rookie Matt Corral be the future answer?
On WISE Sports Radio, Pat Ryan, Mike Gore, and I discuss the Panthers’ QB situation along with Colin Kaepernick working out for the Las Vegas Raiders, Jon Gruden’s lawsuit against the NFL, Baker Mayfield’s trade status, and the Pittsburgh Steelers’ new general manager.
The NFL offseason has slowed down a bit as the Draft approaches. That gave us the opportunity to catch up on a couple of stories during our WISE Sports Radio football segment: Namely, the shocking death of Dwayne Haskins and Brian Flores’ racial discrimination lawsuit against the NFL.
Pat Ryan, Charlie Metcalf, and I also discussed what appears to be a fiercely competitive AFC West division, Baker Mayfield’s trade interest, and what the Carolina Panthers might do in the upcoming NFL Draft.
