Every sport has one single athlete it identifies as the face of their sport. Baseball has Babe Ruth. Basketball has Michael Jordan. Soccer has Pele. Following his fifth Super Bowl title, Colin thinks that Tom Brady is now the face of the NFL, and he’s officially the G.O.A.T. of NFL quarterbacks.
Sunday was Tom’s signature game of his career. The debate is over.
“From this point forward, if you say football, I think Tom Brady.”
The news of the Atlanta Falcons hiring Steve Sarkisian away from Alabama to replace Kyle Shanahan as offensive coordinator broke as Colin opened his show today. The news stunned those around the NFL who didn’t see Sarkisian as being on the NFL coaching radar, but Colin sees the unconventional move as a good hire.
Sark has battled personal demons, but Colin thinks it’s a good hire for Atlanta. Sarkisian has shown, time and time again, that he can coach. He should keep Atlanta’s offense rolling.
“I think Steve Sarkisian, actually will be a very good coordinator in the NFL for several years, and will eventually get a head coaching job in the NFL.”
LeBron James and Tom Brady are uniquely positioned as the top players in their respective sports. Today, Colin went through a list of things the two have in common, and it’s surprising how much their careers mirror each other.
Both have had unprecedented runs and historical levels of dominance in their conference and both brought their team its first title, to name a few.
“LeBron and Brady have a ton in common.”
Peter King – Founder and Editor-In-Chief of The MMQB joins the show to discuss Atlanta’s hiring of Steve Sarkisian as their new offensive coordinator; if Chip Kelly could wind up at Alabama; his takeaways from Super Bowl LI; why Brady’s longevity could be like nothing the NFL has ever seen; and why New England should hold on to Jimmy Garoppolo.
Greg Cosell – Senior Producer of NFL Matchup and NFL Films joins the show to look at the film from Super Bowl LI, including: How Atlanta dominated New England early; why the tape makes it hard to figure out how the Patriots won the game; and how Atlanta’s offense was far more impressive than New England’s.
Chris Broussard – FS1 NBA Insider and host of In the Zone on Fox Sports Radio is in-studio to discuss the Carmelo trade rumors; why Carmelo doesn’t like shooting threes; why Jerry Krause saying Jordan didn’t make demands on the Bulls front office; and if LeBron meant to bank in his game-tying three against the Wizards last night.
