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?

Andrew Luck’s shoulder announces it is not ready to play for the Colts yet

While the Indianapolis Colts are hoping that their starting quarterback Andrew Luck will be returning to action soon, there is someone very important that is not quite ready to play football just yet.

In January, Luck underwent surgery to repair a lingering issue in his throwing shoulder, and his status for the start of the season is still unknown. Yet, his right shoulder is more than a little nervous about rushing back to the field. Luck’s shoulder stated in an interview with the Daly Dose, that it is not looking forward to returning to the gridiron anytime soon.

460755822.0

“Are you crazy?” the shoulder asked. “Have you seen that offensive line? I am not ready to go out there, and get hit again, and again. I am 27 years old, and I am not ready to be replaced already. I have only been in this league for five years, and I have already been sacked over 150 times! I am pretty sure that the Colts are trying to kill Andrew. He might be too dumb to see it, but I’m not. I’ve had enough.”

On Sunday, without Luck in the lineup, the Colts offense struggled under backup quarterback Scott Tolzien. Indianapolis managed just 27 yards, in three drives, with Tolzien at the helm.

Colts management is hopeful that Luck will be returning prior to the start of the regular season, stating that his rehabilitation is going well, and his strength is better than ever.

Luck’s right shoulder disagrees. “I don’t care about lifting weights.” it stated. “That doesn’t mean a thing. You think I care about bench pressing when a defensive lineman lands on me? Nope. Ask Andrew’s spleen what lifting weights did for him. Get out of here with that nonsense.”

Daly Dose #141 The greatest QBs in NFL history

This week on the Dose, we are remembering some of the greatest quarterbacks to ever play in the National Football League! Clint is joined by longtime friend of the show Mike from Castle Rock, and they debate the greatest quarterbacks to ever play for each NFL franchise.

We all know that the NFL has had memorable greats like Tom BradyJoe MontanaTerry Bradshaw, and Johnny Unitas, but who was the greatest signal-caller in the history of the Cleveland Browns, the Oakland Raiders, or the New York Jets?

Are Bradshaw and Unitas even the best quarterbacks from their own franchise? And how do we go about comparing different eras effectively?

Beginning in the AFC, we are remembering some of the best passers in league history, and probably even a few players that you may have forgotten!

Local man draws upon middle school experience to help NFL coaching staff

A local man from Denver attended the Denver Broncos intra-squad scrimmage on Saturday, and found himself in a position to aid his favorite NFL team.

57-year-old Don Wisniewski has been cheering for the Broncos since he was a boy, but during the practice session, he saw the offense struggling to get on track. Instead of getting frustrated, he kept his cool, and helped out the team.

“I know we have two young quarterbacks in Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch, and our defense features a very good pass rush.” Wisniewski stated in a post-scrimmage press conference. “I remembered from my playing days on the middle school football team, that sometimes a screen pass, or a draw play can slow down those edge rushers.”

Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy was going through his scrimmage game-plan when he heard Wisniewski’s suggestion from the sideline.

“We were having a tough time getting much continuity from our young quarterbacks, and we were seeing Cover 2 from the defense. So I was looking at a double slant, with a quick hitch on the backside, to get the ball out quickly.” McCoy revealed. “But when I heard Don’s suggestion from the crowd, it was like a godsend.”

McCoy quickly changed the play call to a screen pass, and Lynch connected with running back C.J. Anderson for an eight-yard gain, and a first down.

“I’m just glad I was able to recognize the problem, and offer a solution.” Wisniewski said. “Hopefully Coach McCoy has learned a valuable lesson today.”

Daly Dose #130 Memorial Day and the things we miss

This week on the Daly Dose we are looking forward to the holiday weekend! With Memorial Day being a time for remembrance we recall a few things that we miss in the world of sports. From the big hits in football, to the days before instant replay, to real sports news there are a number of things that have us feeling nostalgic.

Who is the best team in Major League Baseball right now? It isn’t the Chicago Cubs, that’s for sure.

We have some fake news coming out of the NFL that is being spun as a controversy.

Remember when the Big 12 Conference was going to take the world of college football by storm? That seems a like really long time ago.

A brief look at the NBA Lottery and incoming draft class, and those NBA playoffs have not been easy to watch.

Finally, with the LA Coliseum now being sponsored by United Airlines, we have the Top 5 slogans for the new LA United Coliseum!

Tom Brady filling out last will and testament after being named Madden cover boy

Just months after winning his fifth Super Bowl ring, it seems that the career and possibly life of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady may be coming to an end.

138328881_crop_north

Last week, it was announced that Brady will be appearing on the cover of the latest edition of the EA Sports football video game Madden 18.  Landing the cover hasn’t exactly been a good omen for past players. Former Madden cover players that have been bitten by the curse include: Garrison Hearst (broken ankle), Eddie George (toe), Duante Culpepper (back), Marshall Faulk (ankle), Michael Vick (prison sentence), Donovan McNabb (hernia), Shaun Alexander (foot), Vince Young (general sucking), Brett Favre (joining the Jets), Troy Polomalu (knee), Peyton Hillis (strep throat…no really), Adrian Peterson (more of a curse for his child), and Richard Sherman (Tommy John surgery), and of course last season, Rob Gronkowski saw his season end early with a back injury.

Upon hearing the news Brady immediately contacted a lawyer, and began putting his affairs in order.

“It has been a fun ride.” stated Brady through tears.  “I have enjoyed not only my time in the NFL, but also my time on earth. Unfortunately, it seems that all good things must come to an end. I will be leaving all of my worldly goods to my children. I will leave my starting position on the Patriots with Jimmy G. I have to give a few bucks to my boys John Jastremski and James McNally. Those guys are true friends. Thank you to Robert Kraft, Bill Belichick, all of Patriot Nation…oh, and one more thing…SUCK IT, GOODELL!”

Daly Dose #128 The fights that we wish had happened

The NFL Draft put a few players around the league on notice that their days could be numbered. Who should be looking over their shoulder?

We are nearly finished with the NBA conference semifinals, and of course we are seeing some players getting it done in the biggest moments, and a few players that are failing to make the big plays.

University of Alabama head football coach Nick Saban just got a big raise, so of course that means we have to hear about how that money should go to the players. Unfortunately, it isn’t that easy.

Finally, with the Gennady Golovkin vs Canelo Alvarez fight finally being announced, we look back at the Top 5 greatest fights that never did take place.
