Daly Dose #154 The NFL midseason review

On the Daly Dose this week, we are trying to figure out what has been a wild and surprising NFL season, at the halfway point. Clint is joined by a longtime caller of the show to try to sort it all out. Which teams are the true contenders, and which are the pretenders as we come down the stretch to the postseason? We give our picks for the MVP, Rookie of the Year, and Coach of the Year, as well as who we think will be going to Super Bowl LII!

The Houston Astros won the World Series over the Los Angeles Dodgers, and we have some thoughts on what their big win means.

We had a few upsets in college football, and one major conference could be getting left out of the College Football Playoff because of them.

And with the Astros winning their first title in franchise history, we take a look at the Top 5 next hard luck teams that we would like to see win a championship!

Bandwagon NFL fan feeling disoriented after confusing start to the season

A 38-year-old man in Southern California is feeling very bewildered after a rollercoaster start to the NFL season.

Lewis Meyer, a Los Angeles native, and admitted front runner fan, says that he is suffering from a feeling of disorientation about which NFL team to pretend to cheer for.

“Usually it is pretty simple.” stated Meyer. “I pick one of the favorites and go buy a t-shirt or two and get real vocal at work about my rooting interest, but this year has been tough. The Cowboys are up and down, the Patriots don’t play any defense, and the Packers look terrible without Aaron Rodgers.”

Is there a temptation to just cheer for one of the teams from his hometown?

“That’s when you know things are crazy.” Meyer countered. “The Rams actually look like they could be a contender, but I haven’t cheered for them since they were the “Greatest Show on Turf”, and when they lost that Super Bowl, it really hurt me. I vowed then and there, that I would not root for them again, unless I really knew they had a chance to win something. I have been a Raiders fan before but they are struggling, and the 49ers are terrible.”

The Chargers seem to be heating up, after winning two games in a row.

“I’m not falling for that again.” he responded. “They have hurt me so many times. It is just a matter of time before they do it again.”

“I had an aunt once who lived in Pennsylvania. Maybe I could pretend to be an Eagles fan until something better comes along.” he continued. “It’s a tough time to be true fan, right now.”

Daly Dose #148 Our no politics sports show

This week on the Dose, we are already tired of all of the political talk in sports. So, we sidestep the politics, and stick with what we actually know.

Major League Baseball is finally getting interesting, and we take a look at possible postseason matchups. We know that the Cleveland Indians, and the Los Angeles Dodgers will wrap up the top spots in each league, but which other teams can contend?

We respond to a few listener emails, including who won the NBA trade between the New York Knicks and the Oklahoma City Thunder in the Carmelo Anthony deal. Our answers just might surprise you!

We are now about one month into the college football season. Which teams are failing to live up to all of the preseason hype?

And in the NFL, the New York Giants, Seattle Seahawks, and Los Angeles Chargers might be off to a slow start, but we have some good news for them. Meanwhile, the Green Bay Packers, and Los Angeles Rams are off to very good starts, but could be facing trouble down the stretch. We look at the good news and bad news for a number of teams!

Finally, if your favorite NFL team is off to a slow start, we provide you with a ray of hope! Our Daly Dose Top 5 counts down the five times that NFL teams have started the season 0-3, yet still managed to make the playoffs!

Daly Dose #146 The NFL overreactions

This week on the Dose we are gauging the overreactions from Week 1 of the NFL season! Are the New England Patriots in trouble? Are the Kansas City Chiefs a true contender? And are the Indianapolis Colts, and Jacksonville Jaguars going to be improved in 2017? We look at some of the biggest overreactions that we are hearing, and try to sift through what is actually true.

After a very entertaining week in college football, we are trying to piece together what we have learned so far. The Oklahoma Sooners are looking strong, the Clemson Tigers just keep rolling, and Lamar Jackson wants to win another Heisman trophy at Louisville.

Canelo Alvarez will square off against Gennady Golovkin this Saturday for the middleweight championship of the world, and we take a look at what could unfold in that fight.

Plus, we look at some past NFL overreactions, as we count down the Top 5 bad starts to a Super Bowl winning season!

The 2017 Daly Dose NFL Preview: NFC North

NFC North

The black and blue division will once again be a physical battle for who comes out on top. Sure, this division isn’t as tough as it used to be, with the Monster of the Midway, and the Purple People Eaters, but they do still have Mike Glennon, and Sam Bradford throwing passes. That’s pretty tough to watch.

1. Green Bay Packers

Predicted finish: 10-6

The Packers have the greatest QB league in 33-year-old Aaron Rodgers, but they have struggled to surround him with much talent. In the offseason they signed tight ends Martellus Bennett, and Lance Kendricks, but unless they can play some defense, it could be another loss in the NFC Championship. At least in the offseason, the Pack was able to offload some dead weight, namely Eddie Lacy and Olivia Munn.

2. Minnesota Vikings

Predicted finish: 9-7

There was much concern in Minnesota last season when QB Teddy Bridgewater went down, and the Vikings were forced to go get Sam Bradford to replace him. Yet everyone seemed to be pleasantly surprised with Bradford’s play in 2016. The Vikings went 8-8, and their offense ranked 28th out of 32 teams. Which just goes to show you how little everyone really expected from Bradford. They thought that was actually good.

3. Detroit Lions

Predicted finish: 8-8

The Lions were a bit of a pleasant surprise last year, as they actually managed to make it to the postseason. A tougher schedule will make that outcome tougher to come by in 2017. Can the Lions finally break their streak of having not won a playoff game since 1991? Or of not winning a division title since 1993? In a word…”nope”.

4. Chicago Bears

Predicted finish: 5-11

First, the Bears spent $45 million dollars on free agent QB Mike Glennon. Then they moved up in the NFL Draft to grab QB Mitchell Trubisky. If one didn’t know better, you might get the impression that this franchise doesn’t seem to fully understand what it is that they are doing in the personnel department. Fortunately, we actually do know better.

Daly Dose #142 The greatest QBs in NFL history Part 2

This week on the Dose, we continue our search to find the greatest quarterbacks in the history of each franchise in the National Football League!

Clint is joined again by longtime friend of the show, Mike from Castle Rock, and this week they are going through each team in the NFC.

The Dallas Cowboys have a rich tradition of top passers, the San Francisco 49ers had a quarterback dynasty, and the Green Bay Packers have three different signal callers that will end up in Canton. Yet, we also have teams like the Chicago Bears, the Detroit Lions, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers that have seemingly been searching for the next great quarterback for years.

We make some difficult picks, and discuss why many selections of the top quarterbacks can be severely flawed. Who is the top quarterback in the history of YOUR favorite team?

Listen here to Daly Dose #142 The greatest QBs in NFL history Part 2!
