Andrew Whitworth: First Night On Prime Video Was Like Facing Tyrell Suggs

“The first time that camera turned on and they’re like you’re live go, my heart’s racing a thousand miles an hour.”

Super Bowl champion and Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year winner Andrew Whitworth is enjoying his time as a field studio analyst for Amazon Prime.

Whitworth retired at the end of last season as a member of the L.A. Rams, who beat his longtime former team the Bengals in Super Bowl LVI in February.

Whitworth was asked about making the adjustment to retirement, and he said it took some time to feel comfortable no longer playing. He said it clicked in his mind just how things continue to chug along in the NFL even after he’s gone.

“There was a little bit of a time where you realize man it’s a big wheel and it keeps turning whether you’re in it or not,” he told Dan Patrick on Wednesday. “You have to really come to grips that you know what, this is this big NFL machine, and when you’re not in it man it just keeps rolling. And I think it’s just that humbling feeling, and once you get used to it and realize hey I gotta find my identity in new ways, you start to embrace it in a better way.”

Patrick asked if Andrew had had any “what am I doing” moments since joining the Thursday Night Football crew, and Whitworth admitted he had some butterflies for that maiden broadcast in Week 1.

“The first time that camera turned on and they’re like you’re live go, my heart’s racing a thousand miles an hour, and I’m like man am I a rookie facing Terell Suggs again?” he said. “What’s going on right now? It’s finding new ways to challenge yourself, and it’s been a lot of fun.”

Dan asked if he was more nervous the first time on TV or for when he suited up for his first NFL game. The veteran lineman said his rookie debut produced more nerves.

“Probably for me it would be playing for sure, cause Carson Palmer was back there and they just gave him a lot of money,” he said. “So if he got hit I was gonna be in a lot of trouble. Going on TV I don’t have any problem talking, so I’m alright with that.”

This week TNF will be at The Meadowlands as the Jets host the Jaguars. The final game of the inaugural season on Amazon concludes next week in Nashville as the Cowboys take on the Titans.

670 The Score morning host Mike Mulligan is being awarded the Father Finnegan Memorial Award from Loyola University Chicago this weekend, and some of his colleagues congratulated him on the air Friday morning.

The award is given “in recognition of outstanding humanitarianism and service to youth through athletics”. Mulligan — a 1984 graduate of Loyola University Chicago — will receive the award Saturday during the Loyola Athletics Hall of Fame ceremony during a game against George Mason.

“Tremendous award,” co-host David Haugh said. “Proud moment for the show. Proud moment for you family.”

“They’re giving me an award for correctly picking the Super Bowl on September 8th,” Mulligan joked.

“That is fantastic,” Laurence Holmes said, while his co-host, Dan Bernstein, continued to say “wow”. “Congratulations. You shouldn’t be embarrassed. You should be proud.”

“I’m being celebrated for being old,” Mully joked.

“That’s not what that award says,” countered Holmes. “It says something completely different.”

The Mully & Haugh host eventually admitted he was appreciative of the award bestowed upon him by his alma mater.

“It’s a good thing. I’m very moved by it. Sister Jean will be there,” Mully said. “She has a book coming out with — I think — Seth Davis.”

Colin Cowherd: Tony Romo Regressing Because He Loves Golf

“I’ve always felt like Tony Romo is one of those guys — and we all have somebody in our social circle like this — he got the golf bug. He’s had it for 15 years.

The performance of CBS Sports NFL analyst Tony Romo has been a hot-button topic in sports media circles, especially after a widely-regarded lackluster performance during the AFC Championship Game. Colin Cowherd believes he knows why Romo has regressed.

During an episode of The Colin Cowherd Podcast, the sports radio host claimed golf is the reason behind Romo’s regression.

“Romo wants to be on the Tour. He literally wants to be on the Tour,” Cowherd said. “And what’s the first thing Aaron Rodgers does in the off-season? He goes and golfs, he loves it. Both, by the way, great golfers, especially Romo. But I’ve always felt like Tony Romo is one of those guys — and we all have somebody in our social circle like this — he got the golf bug. He’s had it for 15 years.

“Tony wants to be on the PGA Tour — but he likes the paycheck from CBS.”

Cowherd also added he hasn’t hired potential employees in the past if they told him they loved golf during the interview process, saying he has a theory that as men age they “get addicted to golf”.

“They’re on PGATour.com, they’re putting in the backyard, they’re thinking about it at work, they’re scheduling a trip to Scotland and they lose sight of their other job,” Cowherd said.
