Sean Payton and the Broncos Settle for Each Other. (Also Tom Brady Stuff.)

The MMQB NFL Podcast

Feb 3 2023 • 49 mins

The Super Bowl is coming up. But whatever. There were 53 other big news stories from around the NFL that have nothing to do with the Chiefs of the Eagles.

So Conor and Gary went around the league, starting with the Sean Payton-Broncos marriage. Payton was Denver’s third choice, but keep in mind that the Broncos were probably about Payton’s eighth choice. That said, he is a great coach, but also one who has had his success with an offense that emphasizes pretty much all the things Russell Wilson doesn’t do well. Does this work out in Denver?

Then, the Dolphins beat out the Broncos in the Vic Fangio derby, and a look at how Miami is taking a new tack with their defense. Also, DeMeco Ryans and a Texans organization that is at least poised to turn the corner, Mike McCarthy takes over play-calling in Dallas while Kellen Moore gets to unlock Justin Herbert, and Duce Staley gets to climb another rung in the ladder as he heads to Carolina.

Finally, the prospect of the Packers being done with Aaron Rodgers, and Tom Brady being done with football.
