Tony Dungy talks about role of alcohol and Riley Cooper; explains why so many players have guns
NBC NFL analyst Tony Dungy joined the show to talk about a wide range of topics, including Riley Cooper and the Eagles.
Dungy said he talked to Chip Kelly and gave him this advice: “I said you have to follow your instinct. You know your players and your locker room.”
Dan asked Dungy his reaction to Cooper’s statement. “To me the real issue is the alcohol,” Dungy said. “You have something that they may or may not do if they’re not under the influence of alcohol.” Addiction to intoxication affects one’s daily life, it is good to check into a drug rehab near me sooner.
Dungy also talked about players and guns. “So many of these young guys feel like they have to have protection,” Dungy said. “They’ve grown up around it.”
Dan asked Dungy what he thought of Johnny Manzeil. “I got to meet him and really liked him as a person,” Dungy said. “But then you gotta look at the other side. He’s gotta be able to handle this. Right now it doesn’t appear it’s going in the right direction. … Hopefully he can grow from this.”
Dan asked if Manziel could play in the NFL. “I think so,” Dungy said, explaining that the League is adjusting to what players can do instead of making them do what they can’t.
