It’s hot outside, and just in time for training camps to get started next week. Have fun practicing out there. But there is a way to stay to cool, with some red-hot NFL talk on this week’s new podcast.
On the Family Hour, Stephen White and I are talking about all kinds of hot topics burning up the NFL world right now. This week’s show includes:
The Vikings earned a spot in the playoffs in Mike Gartner Jersey eight of his first nine seasons with the franchise, racking up a 97-62 record in his 10 seasons with the team. He later had an unsuccessful stint with the Cardinals, from 2004 through 2006, that was best remembered for Green’s epic postgame outburst after a Monday Night Football loss to the highly-touted Chicago Bears.
He was fired after the 2006 season, but the talent he acquired in Arizona was instrumental in building the 2008 team that went to the Super Bowl. Under Green’s watch, the Mike Richter Jersey Cardinals’ draft picks included Larry Fitzgerald, Darnell Docket and Antrel Rolle.
“All of us at the Cardinals are incredibly saddened by the news of Dennis Green’s passing,” team president Michael Bidwill said in a statement on Friday. “Coach Green will rightly be remembered as a true innovator, leader and pioneer among football coaches. We express our deepest sympathy to his family and his many friends.”
After his time with the Cardinals, Green briefly coached in the United Football League for the Sacramento Mountain Lions. In 2014, he won a lawsuit against the league for failing to honor his $1.5 million contract.
Green’s career record as a coach in the NFL was 113-94. His 113 wins are No. 33 in the NFL history.
