The Drive Tuesday 10-1-13 – Joe Theismann joins The Drive to talk about the best teams after the first four games of the NFL season, we ask him about the Panthers and what team will show up this week in Arizona, and we talk about how John Fox has had such a resurgence in Denver.
We start with the 1983 NFL MVP by asking him what team he thinks is the best through the first 4 weeks of the season. “The Denver Broncos. Not even close and Champ Bailey hasn’t even played or Von Miller. Peyton is on pace to be phenomenal, well whatever is beyond phenomenal that’s what Peyton is.” Next we move onto the New Orleans Saints. We ask Joe if he was still playing would he rather go to Seattle or New Orleans for a playoff game. “That would be New Orleans. Because it’s a controlled environment. In Seattle you have the fans and the weather to deal with.” Moving on to the hometown Carolina Panthers Marc asks what should we expect out of the Panthers these next few weeks. More like the first two weeks or more like the blowout win against the Giants. “I think it’ll be more like the Giants game. I think you’re going to see a football team that is finding itself on the defensive side of the ball.” Staying in the NFC South we ask what is going on in Tampa with Josh Freeman and the rumors that have leaked out. “Well I dont think Greg Schiano wanted Josh last year” “When you miss a meeting or a team picture…you’ve said to your coaches and to your teammates that you don’t really give a darn” We always love our visits with Joe on The Drive he’ll be back periodically throughout the football season.
