Daly Dose 03-04-19 Early “winners” at the NFL Combine

Monday on the Daly Dose, we are recapping what we learned from the weekend  in sports!

The NFL Combine is producing some early winners,  should these players be moving up the draft boards? One college player didn’t even get an invite to Indianapolis this week, and we think we know why. An NFL team just might have themselves a new quarterback, but it might not fix all of their problems.

Plus, a bad NBA game produces records, the Los Angeles Lakers stumble yet again,  and we discuss some very scary moments in college basketball!

Daly Dose 02-28-19 What’s wrong with the Lakers?

Thursday on the Daly Dose, we are discussing why the Philadelphia Eagles are going to allow quarterback Nick Foles to become a free agent, and why Major League Baseball will not institute a pitch clock anytime soon.

Then, we look closer at some of the biggest sports media overreactions of the week! Should Duke freshman Zion Williamson sit out the remainder of the season? Will 31 teams in the NFL have a major regret after the 2019 NFL Draft? Will a change in scenery revive the career of Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown? What is wrong with the Los Angeles Lakers? Are the Houston Rockets a legitimate threat to knock off the Golden State Warriors? We answer all of these questions and more today on the Dose!

Daly Dose 02-12-19 Winners and losers from the 2018 NFL season

Tuesday on the Dose, the Cleveland Browns sign RB Kareem Hunt, but that really shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. The Oakland A’s cannot be very happy with the announcement that Kyler Murray made on Monday. Plus, the Georgia Bulldogs do something that could mean big trouble for the rest of the country.

The, we take a look at the biggest winners and losers from the 2018 NFL season! Quarterbacks had huge seasons this year, so why did a number of them end up on our loser list? Plus, NFL referees were definitely losers, but it might not be for the reason that you might think!

Daly Dose 02-06-19 Our Super Bowl LIII roundtable Part 3

Wednesday on the Daly Dose, Antonio Brown is making it tough to move him, the NBA All Star game draft might be interesting to watch for one specific player, and the Washington Wizards get some very bad news concerning John Wall and their future.

Then, we continue our roundtable discussion with two longtime friends of the Dose! We look at the NFL season-end awards that were handed out over the weekend, and we discuss where Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles might end up. Plus, why has Denver Broncos GM John Elway struggled so much to find a QB?

Daly Dose Sports Pro Football NFC West Preview

We now take a look at the NFC West one of the greatest divisions for defense in the NFL. And one that sets offense back 20 years.

Team Predicted finish Outlook
NFC West

Seattle Seahawks

12-4

Seahawks QB Russell Wilson said recently that Recovery Water, the supposed miracle water he invests in, kept him from getting a concussion last year in the NFC Championship game. Perhaps he should have dunked Pete Carroll’s head in Recovery Water when he sent in that dumb pass play at the two yard line with the game on the line.

Arizona Cardinals

9-7

In July head coach Bruce Arians hired Jen Welter as the first female coach ever in the NFL. Welter played 14 seasons of professional football and has a Master’s in sports psychology. She will work with the Cardinals inside linebackers as a coaching intern. Bringing on a female coach into the NFL coaching fraternity is very progressive. But they also have Carson Palmer as their quarterback, which is kind of regressive.

St Louis Rams

7-9

In three seasons under head coach Jeff Fisher the Rams have gone 6-10, 7-9, and 7-8-1. This season to get over the hump they traded away QB Sam Bradford for QB Nick Foles. Oh well, they will be California’s problem again soon.

San Francisco 49ers

4-12

The 49ers had the worst offseason in 49ers history. They lost their head coach Jim Harbaugh, OL Anthony Davis, DL Justin Smith, LB Patrick Willis, P Andy Lee, LB Chris Borland, WR Michael Crabtree, G Mike Iupati, CB Chris Culliver, CB Perrish Cox, and RB Frank Gore. Wow, they might have had the worst offseason in NFL history. Okay, maybe the worst offseason in pro sports history.

Daly Dose Sports Pro Football NFC East Preview

We move now to the NFC East.

Is Chip Kelly really smarter than everyone else? Can the Cowboys repeat their winning ways from last season? Can the Giants turn it around and save Tom Coughlin’s job? Can that team from Washington ? I think we know that the answer to all of these questions is “no”.

NFC-East

Team Predicted finish Outlook
NFC East

Philadelphia Eagles

11-5 First Chip Kelly takes former Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray and then he deals QB Nick Foles to the Rams for Sam Bradford. Not bad. If Bradford can actually stay healthy he could be an improvement. Of course that’s like saying “if Philly fans can be polite” or “if Tim Tebow can complete a pass.”
Dallas Cowboys 10-6 The Dallas Cowboys finally got over the hump last year and made it to the Divisional round of the NFC playoffs. They made it by running the ball and taking some of the pressure off of QB Tony Romo to perform late in games. So what did they do in the offseason? They got rid of RB DeMarco Murray (1,845 yards) and replaced him with Darren McFadden (534 yards). Well of course they did.
New York Giants 9-7 The Giants suffered back to back losing seasons for the first time in the Tom Coughlin era as the Giants stumbled to a 6-10 record in 2014. To be fair they did have an insane number of injuries that they were forced to deal with. I was unsure exactly where to rank the Giants in this preview so I asked DE Jason Pierre-Paul to hold up fingers for where he thinks the Giants will finish in the NFC East. Okay Jason, three it is.
Washington Redskins 4-12 The Redskins announced that they would be starting Kirk Cousins in Week 1 after the Robert Griffin III fiasco but that RG3 “still has a future in Washington”.  I didn’t even know he was running for office.
