Former Dallas Cowboy, and Fox Sports broadcaster Daryl Johnston comes on with Jason Ross to talk NFL. Starting things off with the 49ers and his thoughts on how they would do in the playoffs, Johnston said, “I look at San Fran and I wonder how they would respond if they were down 14-0 to the Packers or the Saints. If that happens the 49ers have to be able to get to Rodgers or Brees if they want a chance to win.”
Looking at the other side of the bay at the Oakland Raiders, they seem to be in a good position as the season moves into crunch time. The question however still remains, did Oakland give up too much for Carson Palmer? Johnston responded by saying, “You have to look 2 years down the road to see if the move to get him was too costly.” Will the Raiders be able to keep producing next season or the year after with Palmer?
This season it seems like you can’t have a quarterback conversation without bringing up Tim Tebow. “It’s a quarterback league; you can’t keep winning with this style of play. Although he is 5-1 as a starter it is just a matter of time before the hits pile up for Tebow.”
