John Murphy Show Recap: Wingo, Poyer, Tasker interviews and more

ESPN host Trey Wingo joined John Murphy and Donald Jones on WGR-550 AM on Tuesday.

Wingo, as part of his in-season weekly appearance on the show, talked about his new ESPN show, "Golic and Wingo", Sean McDermott's return to Carolina compared to Jim Schwartz returning to Detroit, what Wingo saw in Cam Newton and the Panthers last week, week one in the NFL in general, and the effects of the injuries to David Johnson in Arizona and Eric Berry in Kansas City.

Former Bills special teams ace and current CBS announcer Steve Tasker also chatted with Murphy and Jones, recalling the scene in Houston post hurricane and the celebration of the bravery of the first responders coinciding with the 9/11 anniversary weekend. Tasker also noted that highway 99 in Houston will be re-named, "J.J. Watt highway". Murphy also asked Tasker if he heard the infamous Doug Marrone quote post game, which was played for the audience. Tasker also talked about Bills-Jets, player superstitions and a brief chat on missing the celebration of the comeback game at New Era Field.

Safety Jordan Poyer opened the show with Murphy and Jones, and he talked about what went behind his blitz on 2nd-and-2, leaders in the locker room, did he enjoy his sack or his interception more? and his thoughts after a big week one win over the Jets.

Jordan Poyer: "My locker is next to Tyrod and so I get to communicate with him...he's a great leader not only on the field but off the field."

Steve Tasker on surprise of Houston-Jacksonville outcome: "I thought this was going to be like the Saints returning after Katrina."

Donald Jones: "Taylor doesn't have the pressure now of throwing to a Sammy Watkins, he just has to throw it to the open guy."

Trey Wingo, on Carolina running Newton late: "You're up 20 to nothing, but you have Jonathan Stewart, you have Christian McCaffrey and you still run Cam?"

Trey Wingo: "If you're a Pats fan, you're thinking, "hey, the last time they've lost week one, they won the Super Bowl."
