Former NFL player Dat Nguyen joined The Fred & Ted Show to talk about all things football. He talked about Johnny Manziel becoming eligible for the draft. Nguyen insists Manziel works as hard as he parties and will take to the NFL naturally. He also gave his take on the disappointing turn out of the Dallas Cowboys season falling just short of the playoffs with Tony Romo. Nguyen looked at the BCS Bowl game from last night and which players to watch from that.
It’s New Year’s resolution time. Here’s what prominent sports figures are (or should be) saying.
Despite their dearth of recent success, all eyes will be on the Cowboys. For the karma and the drama, for better or worse, they are America’s team. Mostly for worse. Just watch on Sunday.
Tony Romo’s season is over, and the Dallas Cowboys will have to win without their star quarterback in a third straight winner-take-all finale.
Paul Bessire of Predictionmachine.com joined MaD Radio to talk about the likelihood that the Texans will lose to the Titans on Sunday. He also discussed the impact of Tony Romo being out on the Cowboys’ chances moving forward. He also took a look at a lot of the teams going into the playoff picture.
Mike Florio joined In The Loop to talk about a bit of the playoff picture in the NFL. He discussed the situation with Tony Romo’s injury as well as the possibility of Rex Ryan getting fired soon. Florio touched on the face that he thinks Lovie Smith is the hottest name in the running for the Texans head coaching position. He thinks the Texans have wasted too much time on Matt Schaub.
For many football fans, Week 16 of the season is even bigger than the Super Bowl because it is their personal Super Bowl. It is the week with money on the line. Week 16 is the week fantasy football champions are crowned.
While many people are preparing for the joys of the holiday season, a good number of current NFL head coaches are dreading the worst day of the year in their profession: Black Monday.
Does Tony Romo deserve the amount of blame and hatred that is heaped upon him?
The Saints coach could elect to punt on fourth-and-5 from the Dallas 42, or he could try to get the one last first down New Orleans needed to set an NFL record.
