The DA Show Weekly Rewind 9/12-9/16

ERIK COLEMAN – 9/12/16
Former NFL safety

“The bad thing about it is everyone talked about the Raiders defense this offseason, how good they were going to be. They weren’t playing very well. So you’ve got Drew Brees in his own house, you fight back to get (within one point) and you’re on the road – you have to go for two in that situation. Drew Brees is deadly, especially in overtime, and you don’t know what’s going to happen. I think the players are excited. They love the aggressiveness of Jack Del Rio. I know I do.”

PHIL SAVAGE – 9/12/16
Alabama color analyst

“Blake Barnett was the quarterback who was in the game, and I think they’re trying to give Blake some consistent reps in their offense, which includes the fly sweep. They’ve run it a bunch already these first two games, and they were trying to go to Robert Foster, who’s coming back off of an injury from a year ago and is trying to get back into the swing of things. But I’m not really sure. It certainly is a lot easier to take a knee or hand it off to Bo Scarbrough or one of those talented freshmen like B.J. Emmons.”

RASHAD JENNINGS – 9/13/16
Giants RB

“They’re tough guys to cover and they spread out the field. The defensive coordinator has to play honest. He can’t tip his hat as much as he probably would like. We’ve got a guy that’s under center that’s a great engineer running the table, so we get to play complementary football like we wanted to on offense. (We’re) spreading it out in the running game, spreading it out in the pass game and we have good tight ends that can run down the field. So we can be a tough team to beat when we take care of our job. Eliminating the self-inflicted wounds – jumping off sides – and eliminating the holding and things of that nature, we put ourselves in a position to be a tough team to beat.”

Bleacher Report NFL analyst

“I think he is viewed around the NFL with most teams as a third-string type of quarterback. So the fact that Jared Goff couldn’t really just beat him out almost instantaneously (is a bad sign). Guys like Jameis Winston, Marcus Mariota, Andrew Luck – the first week of OTAs in the spring, they just go, ‘Oh, he’s clearly physically better. He’s the guy. We’re going to make him the starter. We know we’re going to go through some bumps in the road.’ So that’s scary from that standpoint.”

BART SCOTT – 9/14/16
NFL on CBS analyst

“Go ahead, cut me from my guaranteed contract. So what? If that’s what I believe in, that’s what I believe in. That’s the best time to stand up for what you believe in – when somebody tells you not to. That lets people know how serious you are, how important it is to you. Who is he to tell somebody what they can and can’t do? . . . It’s my civil liberty to be able to (sit or kneel). There’s nowhere in the rule books that say I have to stand for the national anthem. So you fire me on what basis? I’ll see you in court for wrongful termination.”

DAN WOLKEN – 9/14/16
USA Today college football insider

“He’s a nice guy. I think he’s a solid coach. But does he really have the gravitas to take a program like USC and contend for titles? I think that it’s questionable, and I don’t think we’ve seen anything the first two weeks that would give anybody confidence that they’re really going to move forward with him long-term.”

QADRY ISMAIL – 9/15/16
Ravens analyst

“You can’t necessarily just make sweeping generalizations. You’ve got to play it out each week. Each week presents its own challenges. The fact that they’re both undefeated and they’re facing off, we know what we saw last year in the playoffs – this is pretty cool. I’me excited that they are meeting up and are going to go head to head, maybe beat each other up a little bit, so we could see them later on down the road not at full strength.”

KIRK FERENTZ – 9/15/16
Iowa head coach

“It really was one-sided at that time. And they upset Iowa, 27-9, I believe it was that day. Ever since that day, it’s been a dogfight. This game last week was just kind of an aberration, but the five games previous to that, the winner won by an average of I think five or six points. It’s gone back and forth. It’s been really a great, hotly contested series, and it’s unique in that you’ve got two major conferences represented with an intra-state rival. That doesn’t happen very often. I think it’s great for football in our entire state. The entire weekend, everyone is kind of focused on that one game. It’s fun to participate in it, compete in it and I think it’s great for our fan base – theirs as well – and I hope it continues for a long, long time.”
