Lovie Smith having the Houston Texans go for two at the end of their regular season finale against Indianapolis last week thrusted the Chicago Bears into the top pick in the 2023 NFL draft by day’s end.

Houston, for much of the season, looked to be in complete control of the number one overall pick, but now the Bears will be in the spotlight come April.

On Parkins & Spiegel on 670 The Score in Chicago, host Danny Parkins recognizes what this means for their show knowing eventually the Bears will be all that’s discussed in the lead-up to draft night.

“It’s made for our business. They are going to be talked about nationally on the talk shows every day,” Parkins said. “Which means that basically every day we could do the, ‘did you hear what Emmanuel Acho said? Did you hear what Mike Tannenbaum said, did you hear what fill in the blank person said?’ We could do it every day, and then we could like correct out of town stupid.”

Co-host Matt Spiegel agreed. The ingredients are there for plenty of national talk about the Bears.

“It is such delicious fodder for our business because as much as we talk about the uniqueness of the situation, the national talking heads and writers are as smitten with it too,” he said.

The two discussed how they would find a way to keep the discussion about national takes on the Bears interesting. Parkins knows there’s going to be a mix of good points and bad points, they just need to find a balance. But he welcomes the newfound interest that will soon be broken down frequently on The Score airwaves in the coming weeks and months.

“There’s no way we’re going to ignore all of them. It’ll be impossible,” Parkins said. “There will be plenty of stuff that is genuinely interesting.”

“It’s going to be a level of attention that is I don’t want to say unprecedented honestly, but it’s a different type of attention,” he added.

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.”

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.
