Sherman Williams, Tony Collins, Brian Finneran, Craig Wolfley, and Doug Nettles Join Us
On this edition of Thursday Night Tailgate our guests are: former Alabama and Cowboys RB Sherman Williams, former Patriots Pro Bowl RB Tony Collins, former Falcons WR Brian Finneran, former Steelers Tackle Craig Wolfley, and former Colts DB Doug Nettles.
Sherman Williams talks about his experience of being in a Federal prison and the work he's doing today to help keep kids not make the same mistakes he did. He also shared stories from helping Alabama win the National Championship in 1992 and what it was like playing for Gene Stallings.
Tony Collins helped us define what a catch should be. He also talked about Rob Gronkowski and the beating his body has taken over the years. We turned that back on Tony and asked, knowing the toll the game would take on him inlcuding the potental for CTE, would you do it all again?
Brian Finneran played his college ball at Villanova and he said his thoughts on Villanova basketball, what it was like winning the FCS Division 1-AA Walter Payton award, that division's version of the Heisman Trophy, and being inducted into the Villanova Hall of Fame. Brian also shared his insights on the Falcons and if they can get back to where they were in 2016.
Craig Wolfley shared great insights into the gaps the Steelers need to fill this off season. He shared specific thoughts on their recent top draft choices, Bud Dupree, Artie Burns and Sean Davis. He also shared memories of playing in Terry Bradshaw's last game, a game which also closed down Shea Stadium.
Doug Nettles played for the Colts back in the mid 1970's. They went to the playoff from 1975-1977 led by Bert Jones, Lydell Mitchell, Roger Carr, and a storng defense led by Mike Curtis. He said Mike Curtis was as crazy as legend has it and shared some of those stories including how O.J. Simpson didn't start games against them because he wanted Curtis to be winded before he would come into games.
