Helmets Off


Dec 28, 2017

Landon Collins says Eli Apple is rotten, and has to go.  Apple has struggled with the New York Giants.

In the NFL you can't call out your teammate in the middle of the season.  It becomes a huge distracting issue.

The New York Giants are NFL royalty and don't usually get caught up in this kind of drama.  

It looks like you're not a team player and you have sour grapes.  When things go bad, you don't want to start blaming everyone else.  This is a team sport.

Collins says Apple is a cancer, but that attitude is the real cancer.

Every player deals with personal issues.  You just have to figure out a way to also play.

Scott remembers a few years ago a situation with Mark Rypien.  He was a great quarterback.  The year before they went to the Super Bowl, his teammate called him out publicly. Charles Mann said they would never win a  Super Bowl with Mark.  That he had to go.  

Scott Mitchell takes his helmet off to show you the inside scoop of all kinds of sports from football to even golf. Scott Mitchell is a former NFL quarterback who was a star quarterback at the University of Utah before going on to have a professional career playing with the Miami Dolphins, the Orlando Thunder, the Detroit Lions, the Baltimore Ravens, and the Cincinnati Bengals. Scott also hosts the podcast Rivals with former NFL player Jason Buck.

The next year Mark won the Superbowl.  Mark says he never thought much about Charles' statement.  

Scott once called a meeting with his fellow Detroit Lions, no coaches were aware.  There was some weird chemistry that needed to be addressed.  Brett Perriman spoke up and said he was upset by how much Scott threw to Herman Moore.  Brett took tons of passes, but was upset by how the team promoted Moore so much.

They worked it out internally.  That's always much better.
