Daly Dose 02-12-20 Goodbye to the 2019 NFL season

This week on the Daly Dose, Valentine’s Day is coming, and we were able to run down a few Valentines that are being handed out by some of the top sports figures in the world. 

We discuss the changes that could be coming for Major League Baseball, the return of Bobby Knight to Indiana, and winners and losers from the NBA trade deadline last week.

Then, with the NFL season now complete, we look back at some of the more memorable moments, and hand out some awards to the top performers! Who wins our Coach of the Year, Rookie of the Year, Most Valuable Player and Least Valuable Player?

The 92nd Academy Awards took place on Sunday, but sports movies were nowhere to be found. We give our nominations for sports movies/series that are worth your time to watch.’

Finally, with the XFL beginning last weekend, we countdown the Top 5 XFL slogans to kickstart that league with fans!

This week on the Daly Dose, the NBA trade deadline is coming, the Boston Red Sox make an odd move, the Michigan State Spartans need a new head football coach, and ratings for Super Bowl LIV were up significantly! We are pretty sure we know why. 

Then, we are joined by two longtime friends of the show to break down Super Bowl LIV! The Kansas City Chiefs are NFL champions again! How were they able to come back and beat the San Francisco 49ers in the fourth quarter? Did quarterback Patrick Mahomes really deserve the Most Valuable Player award?

We also begin to look forward to the NFL offseason. Where could some of the top free agents end up, and which teams could be playing in Super Bowl LV? We give our way too early predictions!

Then, we are joined by a long time friend of the show to discuss the NFL Playoffs! Mike from Castle Rock stops by to talk about the NFL Wild Card Weekend! 

The Houston Texans, survived last weekend, but can they give the Kansas City Chiefs a test? Could the Tennessee Titans be dangerous when they face the Baltimore Ravens? Is the New England Patriots dynasty finally truly over? Kirk Cousins finally got a big win for the Minnesota Vikings, but can he do it again this week against the San Francisco 49ers? The Seattle Seahawks had to grind out a tough win last weekend. Should the Green Bay Packers be wary?

We answer these questions, and many more this week on the Dose!

Daly Dose 12-11-19 Our five year anniversary

This week on the Daly Dose, we are celebrating the five year anniversary of the Daly Dose Sports Podcast! How have we managed to last this long? We have no idea.

Then we jump into some of the biggest stories this week in sports, the College Football Playoff is set, the Washington Nationals get some good news…but bad news may be coming, the New England Patriots are back to their old tricks, and we have a new heavyweight champion in boxing!

We take a look at a few coaches in the NFL and college football that could be feeling a very hot seat, and could be getting some bad news very soon.

Daly Dose 12-04-19 Previewing the CFB conference championships

This week on the Daly Dose, we remember the fallacy of athletic protective cups, discuss a number of things that we have learned over the past week in sports, and quickly preview the upcoming college football conference title games!

What did we learn from the Ohio State vs Michigan game, and from the Iron Bowl? What did we learn from the Dallas Cowboys loss on Thanksgiving? We saw one NFL quarterback’s era possibly begin on Sunday, but did we see another one’s end? Should the New England Patriots be concerned about their recent struggles? In the NBA, we learned about a defensive stopper that we didn’t know existed, and one former player can’t be happy about it. 

We preview the upcoming college football conference championship games, and how they are going to impact the College Football Playoff that will be announced on Sunday!

Finally, we saw history in college football last weekend, as Jim Harbaugh became the first coach to lose his first five games in the Ohio State vs. Michigan series. Today, our Daly Dose Top 5 counts down five other firsts that Harbaugh has accomplished in his amazing career!

Starting in college football, did Alabama coach Nick Saban make a mistake by having QB Tua Tagovailoa in the game, when he was injured? What mistake did Baylor make in the loss against Oklahoma? Which teams are the true contenders as the regular season winds down?

Moving over to the NFL, we discuss the Colin Kaepernick workout, the Myles Garrett suspension, and which team could unseat the New England Patriots. We also discuss the problems without our hometown Denver Broncos, and what we are hoping for going forward. 

We talk about the college basketball scandals, and what the lack of actual punishment is telling us. We also discuss one major change this season that could affect which teams make a run at a title.

Finally, we get Coach Mac’s thoughts on the NBA this season, and look at some of the new contenders and how much the league has changed! 

Daly Dose 10-09-19 Our NFL ¼ season report

Daly Dose 09-18-19 Early CFB and NFL overreactions

This week on the Daly Dose, the New York Giants are benching Eli Manning, Drew Brees is hurt, Jalen Ramsey wants out of Jacksonville, and a young man gets some very bad news from the University of Tennessee. Plus, we reveal the source of our own personal insomnia!

Then, we take a look at some very early sports media overreactions to both college and pro football. Is the SEC overrated? Has the Pac 12 already missed out on the College Football Playoff? Are NFL coaches being gutsy by going for two point conversions in late game situations? Are the New England Patriots finally going to be the first team to go 19-0? We answer these questions and many more!

Finally, last week we saw Las Vegas sports books set the Patriots as nearly a 20 point favorite over the Miami Dolphins, but was that the biggest NFL point spread ever? Our Daly Dose Top 5 counts down five times Vegas gave even less respect to the underdogs!

Daly Dose 09-11-19 Our 2019 NFL Preview Part 2

This week on the Daly Dose, we briefly recap the first full weekend of football, as both college football and the NFL seasons are now underway! 

Then, we conclude our 2019 National Football League preview, as we look at each team and discuss who will come out on top of each division! A long time friend of the show stops by, and we jump into the AFC South. With all of the recent changes in that division, who will come out on top? The NFC South is consistently one of the most difficult divisions to predict. Can the New Orleans Saints remain on top?

We make our way to the AFC West, and discuss how our hometown Denver Broncos will do, and try to predict who will win one of the toughest divisions in the league. The NFC West looks to be top heavy with the Los Angeles Rams leading the way, but could another team sneak up and surprise them?

Finally, we finish our preview, by making our way too early predictions for Super Bowl 54!
