The Mariotti Show streams live M-F noon to 3 ET.
Hour One on The Jay Mariotti Show: September 10, 2013:
Jay says he’s dealing with motion sickness and vertigo after the mesmerizing first half by Chip Kelly’s blur offense, and, as promised, he offers apologies for suggesting the high-tempo “college” offense would struggle in Week One in Washington. Jay says Robert Griffin III looked tentative and mechanically flawed and will need time to return from his offseason reconstructive knee surgery. Jay wonders why Griffin participated in what appeared to be a RG3 pregame revival when he should let his play speak for itself so early in his career. Jay credits the Texans and their defense, led by Brian Cushing, for a comeback last night against Philip RIvers and a San Diego offense that looked terrific … for 2 1/2 quarters. Jay says we’re watching Chip Kelly revolutionize offensive football and Colin Kaepernick revolutionize the quarterbacking craft, making it an exciting time for a league mired in a concussion crisis and off-field episodes.
Hour Two on The Jay Mariotti Show: September 10, 2013:
Jay details the Oklahoma State football scandal, calling it as scummy as any he has seen in an industry filled with corruption. He wonders if the NCAA, after an embarrassing no-call on the Johnny Manziel pay-for-autographs fiasco, is out of the enforcement and punishment business now that college football’s five power conferences are running the sport with ESPN. Jay says everybody is cheating in college sports — it’s just who is loose and dumb enough to get caught — and he praises Sports Illustrated for an investigation series that ESPN no longer can do because of its business relations with college football. Jay says LeBron James keeps dropping hints that he might leave Miami, opt out of his contract and sign elsewhere next summer, maybe with the Lakers or Cleveland. Jay laughs about the “Johnny Cam” that CBS will use during the Alabama-Texas A&M game and wonders if Manziel, knowing a camera is on him at all stands, will pull stunts. Jay is confident Alabama and Nick Saban, with no distractions and months to prepare for Manziel after last season’s loss, will win the game Saturday in College Station
Hour Three on The Jay Mariotti Show: September 10, 2013:
Jay ranks the cool NFL performances so far this season — Peyton Manning, Colin Kaepernick, Chip Kelly. He says Tim Tebow, if he insists on playing quarterback, should accept an Arena League offer from the KISS/Gene Simmons-owned team in southern California. Jay says he can’t feel sorry for the Yankees, but does feel manager Joe Girardi’s pain as if he tries to scrape his way into the postseason; his confrontation with Orioles manager Buck Showalter clearly symbolizes his frustration. Jay interviews quarterback Dennis Dixon, who knows Chip Kelly as well as anyone after playing for him at Oregon and with the Eagles in the preseason. Jay says Tampa Bay won’t make the playoffs if David Price doesn’t pitch consistently well down the stretch. Jay continues to worry that Dennis Rodman, because of his friendship with an infamous North Korean leader, will get us all blown up at some point.
