Daly Dose 11-20-19 Talking sports with Coach Mac

This week on the Daly Dose, we talk with longtime high school basketball coach Russ McKinstry about some of the biggest stories in sports today!

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 05-10-19 Is the Warriors dynasty ending?

Friday on the Daly Dose, the Golden State Warriors get some puzzling news regarding Kevin Durant’s injury. When can they expect him to return?

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson might not be the most popular guy in his own locker room, and the New England Patriots look for some help to fill a void at tight end.

We preview the weekend in sports, including Tony Romo participating in the AT&T Byron Nelson Tournament, as well as NBA and NHL Playoff games.

Finally, we get to our Daly Dose Top 5, where we look back at how the last five NBA dynasties came to an end. Could the Golden State Warriors be seeing the beginning of the end?


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!

Listen here to Daly Dose #154 The NFL midseason review!

The 2017 Daly Dose NFL Preview: The NFC West

NFC West

This division resembles the AFC East, as there seems to be just one true contender to win it. The Seattle Seahawks are looking to contend for another Super Bowl, while the other teams in this group will struggle to just win more games than they lose. Of course, they also won’t choke a Super Bowl away in dramatic fashion either. So it’s all about perspective.

nfcwest1

1. Seattle Seahawks

Predicted finish: 12-4

The Seahawks needed some major help on their offensive line, as QB Russell Wilson was running for his life last season. Wilson was sacked 41 times, and had to battle various injuries all year, as a result. However, in the offseason Seattle signed some help on defense, and an overweight running back in Eddie Lacy. It is almost like the Seahawks front office hates Wilson as much as his own defense does.

2. Arizona Cardinals

Predicted finish: 9-7

There are a lot of things to like about this Cardinals team despite the fact that they took a step backward last season. RB David Johnson is one of the best backs in the league. Larry Fitzgerald and John Brown are a potent receiving duo. The defense should be active and aggressive, and the kicking game should improve. Oh wait…they still have Carson Palmer at QB, and no real backup? Yeah, nevermind.

3. Los Angeles Rams

Predicted finish: 6-10

The Rams finally had enough of being average, so they fired head coach Jeff Fisher, and set out to find a new identity. They hired 30-year-old Sean McVay to coach 22-year-old QB Jared Goff, without much in the way of an offensive line, or a solid wide receiving corps. Then, they hired 70-year-old Wade Phillips to coach an already respectable defense. Sound confusing? This is LA. It doesn’t have to make sense.

4. San Francisco 49ers

Predicted finish: 4-12

The Niners decided to clean house, hiring Kyle Shanahan to take over as head coach. They are hoping that Shanahan can bring his brand of high powered offense back to the Bay area, and return this franchise to prominence. Yes, the guy that couldn’t manufacture a first down in the second half of last year’s Super Bowl is going to somehow get Brian Hoyer to play at an elite level. Maybe this group should move to LA too.

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.
