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!

Angry, vengeful Eli Manning vows to injure more teammates if demands not met

Disaster struck the New York Giants on Sunday, and it turns out, that it wasn’t an accident.

eli-manning-memorabilia

The Giants continued their losing streak in 2017, by dropping to 0-5, with a 27-22 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers. Yet, as bad as the loss may have been, it was the aftermath of the loss that has Giants fans reeling.

During the game, the Giants lost four different wide receivers to various injuries, including Odell Beckham Jr. to a fractured ankle. Brandon Marshall, Dwayne Harris, and Sterling Shepard also left the contest with injuries that could be lingering.

Afterward, it was revealed that the injuries were not an accident.

“Yeah, I got those guys hurt.” quarterback Eli Manning stated at the podium. “I threw them into trouble, and I don’t mind admitting it. I am sick and tired of the lack of respect that I continue to get, and I have some demands, that I would like to make public. Until those demands are met, I will keep getting teammates hurt with my inaccurate passes, and poor decisions.”

What is it that Manning would like, in order to get his rage to subside?

“First, I want a statue like the one that Peyton just got in Indianapolis. I have won two Super Bowls, and I think I deserve it. Second, I want the Giants to pick all of the Almond Joy and Mounds candy bars out of my Halloween candy this year. I don’t like coconut. Last year, I accidentally ate two or three of those awful things, and ended up throwing up in my locker. My demands will be met, or I will continue to wreak havoc upon my fellow players in this franchise.”

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?

The 2017 Daly Dose NFL Preview: The NFC East

NFC East

The NFC East has a rich history of teams that have won titles. The Dallas Cowboys have won five titles. The New York Giants have won four. The Washington Redskins have won three Super Bowls. The Philadelphia Eagles are also in the NFC East.

NFC-East

1. Dallas Cowboys

Predicted finish: 10-6

After multiple seasons of mediocrity, the Cowboys broke through with a 13-3 record, behind their rookie backfield tandem of QB Dak Prescott, and RB Ezekiel Elliott. The schedule is going to be significantly tougher in 2017, and the Cowboys lost some people on both sides of the ball, but they should still be in the thick of the division race.  Can Prescott avoid a sophomore slump? Can the defense prove that last season wasn’t a fluke? Can Elliott avoid getting arrested? Stay tuned!

2. New York Giants

Predicted finish: 9-7

The Giants are in desperation mode, trying to win one more title with quarterback Eli Manning. They have signed WR Brandon Marshall to pair with Odell Beckham Jr. Tight end Evan Engram was drafted out of Ole Miss with their top draft pick. The defense should remain a top-10 unit behind a nasty defensive line. Unfortunately the offensive line remains a weakness, and Eli Manning seems to be suffering from mid-life color blindness.

3. Philadelphia Eagles

Predicted finish: 8-8

The Eagles are doing some very good things, as they are doing their best to surround their young quarterback Carson Wentz with some help. They signed WRs Alshon Jeffrey, and Torrey Smith, and looked to get tougher on defense. They probably can’t contend for a playoff spot, but they are getting better, and at least they didn’t screw things up. And for the Eagles, that’s pretty darn good.

4. Washington Redskins

Predicted finish: 7-9

Washington seems to have taken the title of most dysfunctional NFL franchise, as they fired their general manager abruptly, and failed to get QB Kirk Cousins signed to a long-term deal. They did sign WR Terrell Pryor away from the Browns, and upon witnessing how this team operates, he stated that he felt like he was right back in Cleveland.
