If the season started today, and your only guide to which quarterback you would take was based on preseason play, who ya got: Michael Vick, Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady, Matthew Stafford or Drew Brees?
It’s hard to pull off a blind sample like that, but my co-host Bucky Brooks and I let you know who is balling right now and who could have his team in play once the postseason comes around on the most recent edition of the Cover Two Podcast.
So who ya got?
Probably not Dolphins quarterback Chad Henne, right? Well, say what you want, but Henne has looked like a totally different quarterback the past two preseason games and Miami Herald columnist Armando Salguero explains why. Salguero also lets it rip on whether he’s buying into Henne and how much of a difference Reggie Bush makes.
We all believe Miami’s defense is going to be really good, but not because it has the top cornerback tandem in the NFL. Sorry Vontae Davis, but we like your confidence. We also like the confidence Bills rookie defensive tackle Marcell Dareus displays during his appearance.
Darius (foot) also updates us on his health and whether he’ll be ready to go Week 1. More importantly, he keeps it real on how much joy Alabama coach Nick Saban brought to the game.
