Now to Fox NFL Sunday. I’ll throw in a few videos as well.
Bradshaw to Cutler & Rodgers: Do Not Embarrass Your Teammates
Glazer Reports Jets Are Trying To Make Teams Prepare For Tim Tebow
Johnson on Cowboys: This Team Can Be Special
Co-host Terry Bradshaw believes that Packers QB Aaron Rodgers and Bears QB Jay Cutler shouldn’t have been as demonstrative in yelling at their teammates throughout Thursday night’s game:
Analyst Jimmy Johnson is impressed by how Peyton Manning thorough preparation has affected the entire Bronco offense: “One quarterback that didn’t criticize his teammates was Peyton Manning. Everybody was impressed with the way he played. It goes to show you that when your leader works hard, it’s contagious to all of the other players.”
FOX COLLEGE SATURDAY analyst Eddie George joined the FOX NFL SUNDAY cast to discuss his amazement at the recovery of Vikings RB Adrian Peterson from major knee surgery:
Analyst Michael Strahan on whether Jets QB Mark Sanchez silenced his critics with his strong performance in Week1: “New York is not week-to-week, it’s not hour-to-hour, it’s not minute-to-minute, it’s second-to-second. He has not silenced his critics.”
FOX NFL SUNDAY insider Jay Glazer reports that the Jets are looking to make teams prepare for Tim Tebow:
Analyst Michael Strahan on whether the Giants should be in panic-mode after their lackluster performance last week against the Cowboys: “When I’m in New York I’m always asked ‘Is it time to panic?’ No. In the 2007 Super Bowl year started 0-2, gave up 80 points in the first two weeks. The Giants always seem to bounce back from injuries which they’ve had a lot of so far this year. Once those guys get healthy you’ll see a better team.”
Co-host Terry Bradshaw on the various distractions the Saints have had to deal with this year: “Let’s not forget that they have lost their leader in Sean Payton. Drew Brees thinks he can be the head coach and the offensive coordinator. He really can’t. Gregg Williams, their great defensive coordinator, whether you like him or not, his style of play suits these Saints. It’s different now. When you lose your leaders it’s a trickle-down effect.”
Analyst Howie Long added: “Suspensions, overruled suspensions as it turns out those players being brought back to the football team was a distraction for them. Hurricane Isaac disrupted their first week of practice. He was focused too much on being a leader, being an assistant coach and not enough on being a quarterback. That will change.”
Analyst Howie Long on the QB Tony Romo and the Cowboys managing expectations: “In Dallas, it’s as much about managing the expectations both from a good standpoint and a bad standpoint. Dallas as a city and as a football team is extreme. You’re either really bad or really good. This football team should have great expectations. You do have a window of opportunity with a franchise quarterback. Now the question is whether they manage the success and the expectations.”
Analyst Jimmy Johnson added: “With a healthy DeMarco Murray and the addition of the cornerbacks Brandon Carr and Mo Claiborne, this defense can be special. This team can be special. I think it’s going to make a lot of Cowboys fans happy.”
