Brian Billick and Jim Mora discuss the hottest topics from around the league, including fresh-face quarterbacks making an impact, the Lions’ backslide, and an examination of the pros and cons of the “Wide 9″ defense.
Listen in as coach Jim Mora and I discuss the NFL’s best surprises and biggest disappointments through the first four weeks of the season.
When the decision to kickoff or receive to start the overtime arises, I would think very seriously about giving the other team the ball first if defense was my strength and we were facing an offense I felt like we could control.
It’s always been my mentality that you have to play a young quarterback to know what you have in him. The time for the Browns to play rookie Colt McCoy is now. If they don’t play him, they won’t know.
The Seahawks have established a solid identity in the last several weeks through a solid running game and an aggressive defense, and I like them in Sunday’s game against the Raiders.
I give the Seahawks a great deal of credit for realizing they could get Marshawn Lynch for a pretty good price, and knowing just what a huge difference he would make on their team.
After taking in Sunday’s game in Chicago, I think i’s time for the Bears to rethink their strategy about what gives them the best chance to win.
In my mind, it’s the perfect combination for the Eagles to start Kevin Kolb and have Michael Vick come off the bench.
For my money, the Rams have to start Sam Bradford. If they thought enough about him to give him $50 million up front and put the future of the organization in his hands as the first pick, how do you not play him?
