Mariotti Show: Wednesday August 14

Missed part of the show? Here’s a rewind of the program on August 14, 2013.

The Mariotti Show streams live M-F noon to 3 ET.

Hour One on The Jay Mariotti Show: August 14, 2013: 
Jay calls Robert Griffin III “the most important young athlete in America” and wonders why he must engage his coach, Mike Shanahan, in a play-me-in-the-preseason debate when protecting his reconstructed knee should be the priority. Jay also projects the second seasons of Griffin, Colin Kaepernick, Russell Wilson and Andrew Luck and asks if each will rise, stay stagnant or fall. Jay takes phone calls on the topics.


Hour Two on The Jay Mariotti Show: August 14, 2013: 
Why is Pete Rose still banned for life when Alex Rodriguez, a twice-caught PEDs cheat/liar, avoided a lifetime ban? Jay then applauds MLB owners for finally getting around to expanded replay, though 10 years too late with the current technology. Hugh Douglas was fired by ESPN, and Jay recounts the life-in-a-bubble scrutiny of his eight-year ESPN experience. Dallas Cowboys, not surprisingly lead the NFL team values list at $2.3 billion, and Jay asks why owner Jerry Jones can be such a great businessman while being such a lousy football man. William Perry is not dead, contrary to reckless Internet reports, and Jay wonders again what has happened to journalism and corroboration in reporting.


Hour Three on The Jay Mariotti Show: August 14, 2013:
Jay concludes that Russell Wilson will have the best year of the four sophomore QBs, and says Seattle is his NFC favorite to reach the Super Bowl. Jay calls Nick Saban the best college football coach ever and says he deserves more attention and reverence. Jay interviews Greg Couch of Fox Sports about Saban and the continuing issues of Johnny Manziel. Jay predicts Fox Sports 1 will be a dud and discusses a report that commentator Jason Whitlock is leaving Fox for ESPN.
