Could you do me a favor real quick? I want you to close your eyes and picture when Tony Dungy said something smart, insightful, or provided a unique perspective? The answer is none of the above. The truth of the matter is Dungy stinks on TV, and it’s insane this guy still has a job with NBC Sports.
Dungy had maybe the wildest take of all-time (I wish I would have saw this story sooner). Hours after Dak Prescott broke his ankle, Dungy came from the clouds and said it might be a good thing for the Cowboys. HUH!?!?
“As tough as this is for Dak Prescott, it might be a blessing in disguise for the Cowboys. They’ve got a good, veteran quarterback, who can make some plays. And this might cause them to get back to their old formula- lean on the running game, lean on Ezekiel Elliott, help that defense out by controlling the ball. You’ve still got wide receivers, and Andy Dalton’s going to make some plays with those receivers.”
A: This is disgusting to say hours after an injury like this.
B: The fact that Dungy thinks there’s even one positive from this injury is insane. Dak Prescott leads the NFL with 1,856 passing yards. He also has a 9-4 TD to INT ratio with a 99.6 passer rating.
C: Andy Dalton is a nice guy, but he’s not Dak. I don’t think it takes a rocket scientist to see that. Well, unless you’re Dungy, who in reality was a terrible head coach but found a way to ride the coattails of Peyton Manning to one championship.
D: The fact that Mike Tirico and Chris Simms just nodded their heads and thought Dungy’s statement was acceptable is even more insane.
E: Dungy later apologized but, do you buy it?
What do we have to do to get Dungy off the air? The people deserve better!
