NFL Week 7 reactions: The Cowboys, Andrew Luck, Jim Bob Cooter and more

It’s Tuesday, which means Week 7 of the 2015 NFL season is officially in the books. As always, it was a week full of brilliant plays, comebacks, upsets, and of course some pretty bad performances too.

Just like every week, SiriusXM’s sports channels covered all the action from this past weekend. Here’s a look at what they had to say about some of the biggest stories from Week 7:


The Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers kicked off the week on Thursday night, with the Seahawks cruising to a 20-3 victory. Adam Schein spoke about the 49ers’ loss on Mad Dog Sports Radio – and he went off.

“Jed York decided he wanted a coach who would play nice in the sandbox, who would share his toys, who would play well with others — things I talk to my kids about,” Schein said. “Wins? Who wants to win? Wins are optional. Wins. Who wants to win games? Who wants to win championships? Who wants home playoff games? Who wants to go to the Super Bowl? Not the 49ers.”


Schein got fired up once again on Monday when he spoke about the Dallas Cowboys’ 27-20 loss to the New York Giants. The win gave the Giants sole possession of first in the NFC East.

“What a performance by Matt Cassel, if you root for the Giants,” he said. “Three interceptions in the second half of the game. The Giants were saying, ‘Look, Dallas, do me a favor. I know you don’t have Tony Romo, I know you don’t have Dez Bryant, we want you to win.’ The Giants were playing to lose the game, and Matt Cassel said, ‘Look, I don’t wanna win, you take the the win.’ What a clown show yesterday by the Dallas Cowboys.”


On NFL Radio, Pat Kirwan talked about the continuing struggles of the 3-4 Indianapolis Colts after a 27-21 loss to the New Orleans Saints.

“It’s a disaster, and it doesn’t appear like it’s getting better,” Kirwan said. “Let me get on to Andrew [Luck]. Everyone goes through some kind of bump in the road in their career. But 4-6 in the last 10. And in those 10 games, 16 touchdowns – that’s not even two-a-game – 16 turnovers, 14 sacks, and this year it’s really the same story. Ten turnovers in five games? Look, I never thought I’d say this, but I will say it. There was a time this year this team looked better when [Matt] Hasselbeck was running it.”


Washingon Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins spoke to NFL Radio after his team’s 31-30 victory over the Tampa Buccaneers – a game in which Washington trailed 24-0 at half-time.

“We had great play calls and great execution, and the next thing you know, we’re back in the game,” Cousins said. “A great job of guys winning their one-on-one match-ups, and Jordan [Reed] on that final play just winning his match-up and making the play. Very, very exciting to win the game like that.”


St. Louis Rams rookie running back Todd Gurley talked to NFL Radio after scoring his first career touchdowns in his team’s 24-6 victory over the Cleveland Browns.

“It just feels good to be back home and get a win in front of the home crowd,” Gurley said. “The offensive line did a great job of getting the blocks, and the receivers on the secondary. So, it was just a great team effort.”


Mad Dog Sports Radio’s Patrick Meagher reacted to the Detroit Lions’ firing of offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi and subsequent promotion of quarterbacks coach Jim Bob Cooter following a 28-19 loss to the Minnesota Vikings.

“Joe Lombardi wasn’t a creative offensive coordinator,” Meagher said. “I don’t care if every single character from Duck Dynasty calls the plays, I don’t care if 2 Chainz, he’s country, Nelly, Country Grammar. I don’t care who’s calling the plays, as long as it’s not Joe Lombardi.”
