[podcast] S9 debrief: the Dolphins are serious business

Agenda: change in Week 11

With the Bengals and Steelers due to face off in prime time on Sunday, Nov. 20, the NFL decided the poster wasn’t glamorous enough. The two teams are therefore sent back at 10:25 p.m.

It’s the Chargers-Chiefs match that airs at 2:20 a.m. Sunday night through Monday, with national coverage in the United States.

Grass or artificial? No difference in injuries

For the past few days, some NFL players have been calling for a return to more natural lawns in the NFL. For them, grass would be safer. Except that the data does not necessarily validate this sentiment. According to an internal NFL and Players Union study obtained by ESPN, the rate of non-contact leg injuries is almost the same on natural or artificial surfaces.

Injuries were more numerous on artificial turf in 2019, but the gap has since narrowed, until the two curves almost meet.

« The lesson of this data is that the discussion between synthetic and natural is not really the subject, » said Jeff Miller, one of the vice-president of the NFL. « What we’re trying to do is bring down injuries on both types of surfaces. »

Colts: Parks Frazier (assistant QB coach) will call offensive plays

After the back-to-back dismissals of offensive coordinator Marcus Brady and coach Frank Reich, Jeff Saturday was named the Colts’ interim coach. His only coaching experience was at a high school in Georgia, and he wasn’t calling offensive plays. So we had to find someone to do it, no one in the staff having had this role before.

According to NFL Media, it is therefore the quarterbacks coach and passing game specialist Parks Frazier who will take on this responsibility. At 30, Frazier has little experience but knows the franchise well, having worked in various assistant positions since joining in 2018. It remains to be seen how he will perform on the pitch.

Raiders: Josh McDaniels does not panic

For the third time this season, the Raiders lost by leading by at least 17 points. They collapsed in the second half. But Josh McDaniels isn’t panicking.

“I’m not going to panic and say we have to undo everything we’ve done. It’s not the right thing to do,” the coach told reporters on Tuesday. “There are things we do very well, there are things we need to do better. »

Jordan Love ready to take over?

Retirement rumors have surrounded Aaron Rodgers for several weeks. Add to that his departure plans, which have been regularly in the NFL news for several years, and the question of the Packers’ starting quarterback for next year becomes more than legitimate. Jordan Love, drafted in the 1st round in 2020, has been preparing in the shadows for three seasons now, and many are wondering if he really has the level to take over from Rodgers. De’Vondre Campbell (LB) and Dallin Leavitt (S) have their thoughts on the matter, as they told local radio.

« He’s a starting quarterback, » Campbell said. « He’s better than a lot of starting quarterbacks in the league. »

Statements that have little value until he really plays. Above all, it is customary to see players praise their quarterback. Only performances on the pitch can prove that he is really on the level.

Aaron Rodgers hopes for a warm welcome for Mike McCarthy

For the first time since his dismissal in 2018, Mike McCarthy will return to Green Bay, this time with the Cowboys coaching cap. For Aaron Rodgers, quarterback with whom he won the Super Bowl in 2011, Lambeau Field must give a warm welcome to his former coach.

“I hope the fans will show a lot of gratitude and appreciation for his 13 seasons, his title and a lot of great memories over the years. He has a street named after him. It’s quite special. I hope the fans will give it the welcome it deserves. »

The quarterback praised McCarthy, expressing  » [sa] gratitude and [son] love” for the Cowboys coach, while recalling that after five consecutive defeats, the Packers had to win this meeting.

Tom Brady watches every Patriots game

20 years in a franchise, it does not fade anyhow. Despite moving to Tampa Bay in 2020, Tom Brady still watches the Patriots play weekly, as he stated on SiriusXM. He also took the opportunity to recall his admiration for his former coach, Bill Belichick.

« We had 20 years of elite football experience together that I wouldn’t trade for anything in the world. I know he is a great competitor. He’s an incredible coach, he prepares the team to win, and he does it year after year. The fact that he is 22 wins behind Don Shula (the record holder for the number of wins for a coach), I have no doubt that he will surpass him. »

Reports had announced a deterioration of the relationship between the two men, but Brady, each time he has the opportunity, recalls that Belichick is for him « the greatest coach of all time ». With so many victories in common, it’s hard for him to think otherwise.
