Kansas Jayhawks Head Football Coach, Lance Leipold joins Doug Gottlieb on The Doug Gottlieb Show. He is pleasantly surprised to be undefeated at this point in the season and shares the secret to their program’s continuing success. He talks about how he keeps his players grounded and focused despite the media scrutiny as they continue to win games. He shares how he recruits athletes and preaches a culture of competition to keep players engaged. He couldn’t be happier to coaching in the BIG 12 and has no plans to go anywhere else anytime soon.

Lance Leipold: “Guys are always hungry and looking for opportunities. But we’re hoping that their day-to-day experiences and what we’re changing here is something they’re going to want to be part of...”

Los Angeles Chargers LB Drue Tranquill joins Doug Gottlieb on The Doug Gottlieb Show. He weighs in on the continuing saga of Miami Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa’s recent spate of injuries and can’t understand how he was allowed to return the the game on Sunday,, much less play again last night. He talks about their disappointing start to the season, including last week’s loss to the Jaguars. He is confident that the squad will start to gel and be able to win those close games down the line. And he talks about how the team is planning to step up until their defensive stud Joey Bosa can return to the field.

Be Cautious About Doubting Tua’s Doctors

Be Cautious About Doubting Tua’s Doctors

Miami Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa suffered his second serious looking injury in as many games and a lot of people are questioning the medical professionals who cleared him to play. Doug uses simple logic to refute any hint of impropriety, reminding us that these doctors are unlikely to risk their entire careers by knowingly letting him play with a brain injury. It doesn’t really make a lot of sense to believe they just really wanted him to play this one game against the Bengals.

Doug Gottlieb: “Be very cautious I think of saying these two doctors, they don’t care about their legitimacy, and their profession, and the Hippocratic Oath, and all the things that they have worked their entire lives for because they wanted to see Tua play against the Cincinnati Bengals, or because the league wanted that.”

Tonight’s NFL Game Is Super Important and Nobody’s Paying Attention

Tonight’s NFL Game Is Super Important and Nobody’s Paying Attention

The Miami Dolphins will travel to Cincinnati to face the Bengals tonight and Doug wonders why it’s not getting more attention than it is. We have two Heisman Trophy and National Championship winning quarterbacks squaring off with huge implications for their respective seasons. The Dolphins can start a boat race in the AFC North by starting the season 4-0 while the Bengals would put themselves behind the 8-ball at 3-1 with a loss. With so much at firepower and so much at stake, there really should be more hype around this game.

Doug Gottlieb: “(The Bengals) can’t go to 1-3! And for Miami, if you can get to 4-0, ooh, everybody’s playing catchup. This one feels like a super, super important game that not enough people are paying attention to.”

Lamar Jackson Isn’t the MVP after 3 Weeks

Doug has had just about enough of everyone proclaiming Lamar Jackson as the greatest quarterback in the league deserving of the MVP award and a long-term guaranteed contract after the first 3 weeks of this season. While he readily admits Jackson has been phenomenal so far, nobody should be making that kind of determination so soon. He encourages everyone to take a breath and realize that now is not the time to be crowning the MVP with so much football left to be played.

Doug Gottlieb: “Please stop with the MVP discussion. There’s no MVP discussion 3 weeks into the season.”
