NBC NFL analyst Tony Dungy joined the show to talk about Josh Freeman’s debut for the Vikings and more from around the League.
Dungy said he watched all but the last three minutes of the game.”It was painful,” Dungy said. “There wasn’t a lot of great football out there.”
Dungy explained that the Giants tempted Freeman to throw by giving the Vikings one-on-one opportunities, but they couldn’t convert them.
Dungy said he wouldn’t trade Adrian Peterson because they may not be that far away. Dungy cited the Chiefs, who turned around so quickly from last season’s 2-14 debacle.
Dan asked Dungy his take on Jay Cutler. He doesn’t think they’ll have to pay $100 million and thinks Cutler had a lot of encouraging signs so far this season. “If it gets ridiculous, then maybe you move forward,” Dungy said.
Dungy commented on the Colts. He said that “the haters” had nothing to do with motivating the Colts. They were coming off a bad loss to the Chargers and were already motivated.
Dungy weighed in on adding a Thursday game is not good for player safety and the teams don’t like it. “It’s hard to prepare for as a coach,” Dungy said. “Players don’t like it.”
