Jimmy B & TC Show: NFC North Week 2 Analysis

Jimmy B & TC Show: NFC North Week 2 Analysis

Barroom Executive Editor BJ Reidell joins The Jimmy B & TC Show hosted by Trent Condon on KBGG 1700 AM (Des Moines, Iowa) to analyze the current standing of all four NFC North teams following opening week of the NFL season.

Condon opens the show with a flurry of Minnesota Vikings questions, including bits on how far Mike Zimmer’s defense can carry the team, an instant evaluation of Minnesota’s rebuilt offensive line, what to think of Laquon Treadwell’s absence from the Week 1 lineup and what to expect from the quarterback position against the Green Bay Packers.

The broadcast then transitions over to a lengthy analysis of Green Bay’s offense, specifically the return of Jordy Nelson and how his presence influences Randall Cobb, Davante Adams and certainly Aaron Rodgers.

Matthew Stafford and the Detroit Lions are next on the docket with plenty of praise directed toward a team that was perceived as a bottom-feeder entering the 2016 season.

There is a brief break from analysis, as the newly-unveiled Color Rush uniforms and some subjective — and critical — thoughts from Reidell.

The segment enters its closing stages with the contending status of the Chicago Bears and how Vic Fangio’s defense will need time, but the pieces are beginning to fall into place. Reidell then rounds out the NFC North discussion with some praise for the often-criticized Jay Cutler and the soon-to-be lethal combination of Alshon Jeffery and Kevin White.

Moving on from the North division, Reidell speaks to the performance of the North Dakota State Bison through two games, noting coach Chris Klieman’s concern regarding the team’s depth and a formula that still works even without Carson Wentz.
