SiriusXM announced a new podcast for Adam Schein which will debut on Wednesday, September 4th.  The weekday host on SiriusXM’s Mad Dog Sports Radio will release weekly podcasts throughout the NFL season.

The Adam Schein Podcast will offer football as its theme, featuring unique conversations with celebrities and athletes during each episode.  Considering the NFL as its focal point, the podcast features an unlikely guest for episode 1, as former New York Mets third baseman, David Wright joins Schein to talk football.  

During the conversation, Wright offered parallels to Eli Manning as a former superstar athlete in New York and Andrew Luck, having both dealt with injuries that led to prematurely ending careers.

“For me it was my mind was always telling me, ‘You’ve got it.  You can do it.  You can overcome this.’  And my body was just saying, ‘No, you can’t,’ said Wright, regarding having to retire because of injury.  “And it was kind of an endless cycle of my mind winning over my body until it got to the point when my body just said, ‘Hey, no more.  This is it.’  My body was just telling me that you can’t do this anymore.”

Having played more than a decade in New York, making seven All Star games and helping the Mets to a World Series in 2015, Wright also spoke about Eli Manning’s career with the Giants nearing a close.

“As an outsider you’re like, ‘Man that’s so unfair that he’s getting this criticism.’  But then knowing those fans, like we talked about, their passion they have in New York, that’s what New York is and that’s what has made Eli such a legend.  It’s the same thing that’s built him up sometimes are kind of those same influences that try to chop you down,” Wright said on Schein’s new podcast.

The Adam Schein Podcast is available on SiriusXM on Demand and Pandora. 

Beginning his career as an intern with WFAN in the mid-90s and later working as a part-time host, Schein left the iconic New York sports station for Sirius in 2004, joining the platform even before Howard Stern made the jump to satellite radio.  Schein agreed to a contract extension to remain with SiriusXM earlier this year.

Julian Edelman Considers Himself A Pioneer

“I’ve been a football player since I was 8 years old, but I did have other interests. Now that I am done, I get to explore that.”

Since his playing days with the New England Patriots ended after the 2020 season, Julian Edelman has kept himself busy with his role on Inside the NFL and now co-hosting the Games with Names podcast with comedian Sam Morril. So, what was Edelman looking for with his post-football endeavors?

Edelman was a guest on the most-recent episode of the Half-Forgotten History podcast with Trey Wingo and he said that the vibe that Inside The NFL has with Phil Simms, James Brown, Brandon Marshall, Michael Irvin, and Ray Lewis was something that he was looking for.

“With Inside the NFL, I have those guys and there’s a camaraderie. We get to have that breaking bread and just locker room kind of vibe. On the podcast, it’s the same thing.”

The MVP of Super Bowl XLIII mentioned that the key to doing the things he does now in his post-career came from the way him and his team were able to use social media to build his own brand and help ease the transition from a playing career to a member of the media.

“When I retired, I was fortunate enough to put a good team around me for all of my off-the-field things. We built a brand through social media. Kind of pioneers of this whole thing with social and e-commerce and millennial/Gen-Z things. It helped me land a role on Inside the NFL and go and have an ability to start a podcast, Games With Names. It’s been good and it honestly helps with the transition.”

Now that Edelman’s playing days are in the past, he said that he now has the opportunity to do things that he was always interested in since he was a kid, but did not have the time for and he is grateful for the opportunities that the NFL has allowed him to have.

“I’ve been a football player since I was 8 years old, but I did have other interests. Now that I am done, I get to explore that. I am so grateful for football and for the game just because it has given me the opportunity to do things that are fun and amazing.”

Amazon Under Fire For TNF Halftime Show’s Handling of Tua Injury

There was plenty of reaction to how Amazon covered the situation and lacked the awareness to acknowledge what transpired last Sunday.

Tua

Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa suffered a head injury in the 2nd quarter of Thursday night’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

The images of Tua’s injury and the reaction of his body to the injury shocked not only the other players and fans in the stadium, but also those watching the Thursday night game on Amazon Prime Video.

At halftime, Tony Gonzalez, Ryan Fitzpatrick and Richard Sherman all offered their reactions, with host Charissa Thompson providing an update from the team.

But noticeably absent in that discussion and reaction was the fact that Tua was playing in the game and suffered a head injury less than a week after he was believed to have suffered a concussion in Miami’s Week 3 game against the Buffalo Bills. Add in the fact that the NFL Players Association is also investigating whether league concussion protocols were followed, as Tua returned to that game and helped lead the Dolphins to a victory.

There was plenty of reaction to how Amazon covered the situation and lacked the awareness to acknowledge what transpired last Sunday.

The network did provide a deeper discussion during its postgame show and Al Michaels and Kirk Herbstreit addressed the issue in the 3rd quarter. Unfortunately it didn’t become a bigger discussion on the broadcast until social media became littered with negative reactions to the halftime show’s approach to discussing the various issues involving the Dolphins quarterback prior to his injury during Thursday night’s game.

With Amazon now in partnership with the NFL, it’ll be interesting to watch how the network handles future sensitive issues given what they experienced covering the Tua Tagovailoa story.
