The Athletic’s Jeff Howe joined Cattles & Ramie on Tuesday to discuss the latest storylines around the NFL, including whether or not Tua Tagovailoa should play another game this season, what will the Broncos look for in their next head coach and if the Raiders and Derek Carr headed for a divorce.

Topics discussed include:

  • Should the Miami Dolphins entertain sitting Tagovailoa for the rest of the season and post-season with the news that he’s suffered another concussion?
  • Are NFL players taking concussion protocols seriously enough?
  • Why the independent concussion spotters in the NFL need to be more aware.
  • How appealing the Denver Broncos coaching position will be in 2023
  • What red flags Jeff saw after the Broncos announced they’re relieving Nathaniel Hackett as head coach
  • Should the Denver Broncos bring in an established head coach to work with Russell Wilson?
  • If the NFL’s free agents include Jimmy Garoppolo and Tom Brady, then it’s possible Derek Carr is out as quarterback of the Raiders
