The Grant Napear Show – January 31, 2012
A big show for the Grant Napear show today, with the Kings in Oakland to face the Golden State Warriors. This is a big game for the Kings to possibly start building some momentum as the season moves closer to the mid-point.
First guest on the show today was Austin Collie wide receiver for the Indianapolis Colts. When asked is felling on teammate Payton Manning and if he will return with the colts, or at all. Collie said he is happy to be out of town. He went on to say, it is a sore subject for some people. I try to stay away from it at all costs. The Colts are going through a lot of changes and Collie feels that it is bitter sweet, but at the same time he is excited for somewhat of a new start. With the super bowl being Sunday and when asked if he will watch the big game, Collie said it’s hard to even watch sports center and see other people playing. Collie talks with Grant about the football camps that his family has built saying, there are so many camps out there for QB’s. My goal is to have a camp that is not centered on one position. I want to teach kids the same drills and techniques that I use today.
Austin Collie’s father Scott Collie also joined the show to speak about the camps and you can find more information on the camps as well register for the up-coming opening by visiting Receivertech.com Matt Steinmetz with CSN Bay Area joins the show to talk Warriors basketball. Sharing his thoughts on Mark Jackson Steinmetz said, I like his demeanor and the way he communicates with his players. I would like to see however a little more openness with his players. Steinmetz goes on to speak with Grant about Stephen Curry and his re-accruing injury to his ankles. Steinmetz feels that the Warriors are not in panicking about it. The Warriors shut him down for 8 games, that’s the longest time he has been out. He will be okay with no long term effects. Switching gears a little bit and talking about Keith Smart who coached the Warriors last year and improved the team by 10 wins before the Warriors decided to go a different direction. Steinmetz said a lot of people think Keith got screwed; Keith Smart should be coaching this team this year. The players really liked playing for him.
Rounding out the show, Rich Gannon with CBS Sports joins the show to talk about the super bowl. Gannon feels that the NY Giants have come into this game with a lot of momentum and they are the best football they have all year. He went on to say that the passing game all starts with protection. Protecting the QB is something that the Patriots have always focused on. Gannon went on the say that Eli Manning is stronger than he was 4 years ago. He has matured and become more of a leader on his team.
