Live from Super Bowl LI in Houston:
Reports coming out of Cleveland say the Browns will look to make a trade to acquire Jimmy Garoppolo from the Patriots in the offseason. Colin has said on multiple occasions he thinks Jimmy G is the real deal. He thought he showed enough in his fill-in role for Tom Brady to prove that he’s as sure of a thing as there is this offseason.
This year’s crop of college quarterbacks is thin, and none looks ready to play and win right away. Colin thinks the Browns need to do whatever it takes to get a deal done for Garoppolo, even if it means forking over half their draft picks to Bill Belichick. Having a bunch of draft picks is worthless if you don’t have a quarterback. It’s an easy call, only the Browns could screw it up.
“Just get the quarterback. Garoppolo, you’ve seen enough. A helluva a lot more with Garoppolo than Mitch Trubisky. Go get him! 5 picks. You’ve got like 12 picks next year. Give half of them up, who cares? Get the quarterback right!”
Charles Barkley responded to LeBron James’ public comments ripping him. Barkley said he’s not upset with James, but didn’t back off his criticism that the King was whiny for making comments ripping the Cavs front office, and complaining that the salary cap strapped Cavs need to add another player.
Colin thinks NBA players are the most thin-skinned because the NBA is all about them. Compared to the cutthroat NFL where contracts aren’t guaranteed and endorsement money is sparse, NBA players have guaranteed money and endless streams of endorsements. The NFL is anti-player, and the NBA is run by the players. It’s why they get so bent out of shape when they get criticized.
“In the NFL if you go on a boat for three hours with teammates, you are not a team player. You are a disruption. You should be traded. In the NBA, you can go on a boat with rivals. ‘It’s all good!! We’re just friends.”
Howie Long – NFL Hall of Famer and co-host of Fox NFL Sunday is on look back on his Super Bowl memories as a player; why he’s so happy for his son Chris to play in a Super Bowl after years of playing on losing teams; and what moment made him realize he needed to appreciate how rare it was to get to a Super Bowl.
Nate Burleson – Former NFL wide receiver and co-host of Good Morning Football on the NFL Network is on-set to explain why he doesn’t completely disagree with Colin’s take on diva wide receivers; why he is a self-described undercover diva; what Pete Carroll did to change the culture in Seattle; and Colin somehow remembers his dad’s jersey number from his playing days at the University of Washington in the 70’s.
Eric Mangini – Former Browns and Jets head coach, and Patriots coordinator is on set to look back on his first Super Bowl as an assistant with New England; why he hired Dan Quinn as a defensive line coach during his time in New England; why it’s so crucial for teams to get their preparation done before they get to the Super Bowl; and why if Brady knows the coverage, it’s over.
Trevor Siemian – Denver Broncos quarterback is on set to talk about sleeping upright in a chair after shoulder surgery; his scouting report on the Super Bowl teams after facing them; if Tony Romo to Denver rumors bother him; and how the Super Bowl experience has changed since he first experienced it as a player.
Dan Reeves – Former Broncos and Falcons head coach is on set to look back at his Super Bowl experiences as a player and a coach; which loss stung the most; what impresses him most about Bill Belichick; how the Super Bowl experience is almost unrecognizable from his playing days.
