FIND A STATION Dan Patrick Show

Sports Illustrated and NBC Football Night in America analyst Peter King joined the show to talk about Week 11 in the NFL.

King weighed in on Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski getting hurt late in the Indy-New England game on a special teams play. King said it’s typical for the Patriots to have regular starters play on special teams. He said most pros he talked to weren’t surprised Gronkowski was out there.

King said that the Pats are uniquely suited to handle the Gronk injury because they have Aaron Hernandez and Visanthe Shianceo at tight end. Most teams would take that.

King also weighed in on Ben Roethlisberger’s injury. He said the rib problem could easily lead to some more severe injuries and be very serious.

King looked ahead to the “backup bowl” tonight — Chicago’s Jason Campbell vs. San Francisco’s Colin Kaepernick. King said Campbell is very rusty and the Niners have an advantage.

King said he thinks that the Eagles won’t fire Andy Reid during the season. He said there isn’t a big advantage to that for Philly ownership.

And King thinks that Oregon coach Chip Kelly will have more opportunities than he’ll ever have this offseason. King said that last year he wasn’t assured that the Oregon offensive coordinator would get the head coaching job, and now that seems likely.

King said that he’s hearing Philadelphia likes Kelly a lot. And he said San Diego makes some sense for Kelly. Also, King put Cleveland in the mix.
