The Grant Napear Show – September 24, 2012
Grant began the show by talking about the Oakland Raiders’ first win of the season and the San Francisco 49ers’ first loss of the season, which, as you can imagine, brought in a ton of calls.
NFL reporter and radio host Adam Caplan came on the show to talk about the NFL and the Philadelphia Eagles.
Caplan talked about Eagles’ fans disgust in the way the team has played recently, the bad play of Michael Vick, Vick’s lack of a pocket presence, the Raiders’ win over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, the 49ers’ loss in Minnesota on Sunday, the early success of the Arizona Cardinals and who he thinks is going to win Monday night’s game between the Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks.
Oakland Raiders’ head coach Dennis Allen was on the show with Grant today.
Allen talked about the Raiders’ last minute win on Sunday, Sebastian Janikowski’s game-winning kick, the upcoming games against the Denver Broncos and Atlanta Falcons, returning to Denver to face his former team and the injury to Darrius Heyward-Bey.
Former Vice-President of Officiating for the NFL, Mike Pereira, joined Grant to talk about the replacement referees.
Pereira talked about the labor negotiations between the NFL and the regular refs, the risk to players’ safety with all of the missed calls, the extra challenge that Jim Harbaugh shouldn’t have had on Sunday and Pereira even broke down the rules on what constitutes a chop block.
San Francisco 49ers’ cornerback Carlos Rogers was on with Grant to talk about the Vikings’ upset over the 49ers on Sunday. Rogers talked about what the loss meant to the team and the team’s focus going forward.
