Fox Sports Daryl Johnston: “This Is Not A Rudderless Ship In Carolina”
The Drive Wednesday 8-21-13 - Daryl “Moose” Johnston from Fox Sports talks with The Drive about what Cam Newton needs to do to become the leader this teams needs, if he thinks Ron Rivera is on the hot seat this season for his job, and we discuss his former employer Jerry Jones and if he’ll ever give up the General Manager duties in Big D.
Daryl Johnston talks with The Drive first about what coaches might be on the hot seat in the NFL.
“I don’t think Jason Garrett is on the hot seat. 8-8 is pretty good for them last year…and I don’t think Ron (Rivera) is they had a really brutal start to their schedule last year and you have to go back and see who they faced to see why they got off to that tough start.
Moose Johnston was a all-pro fullback for the Dallas Cowboys so we ask him if he thinks Jerry Jones will ever give up the General Manager duties to someone else.
“I think if Jerry ever does step down it will be his son Steven Jones will assume that role. But I don’t expect that he will bring in someone else to fill that role.”
Next we talk about Ron Rivera and his plan to make the Panthers a playoff team.
“Ron strikes me as a guy that on a day to day basis that is always reinforcing his vision and what direction he wants the team to move.”
Finally we close by asking to Fox Sports analyst when he thought his team of the early 90′s in Dallas was going to be great.
“The real light bulb moment came for me was when Norv Turner came in… we were putting the offense in and every position that whatever you required from that position and that player that happened to be their strength”
Daryl “Moose” Johnston will be calling the Saints/Falcons game week 1 of the NFL season.
