Derrick Brown on 2nd-year goals, Panthers young defense, a costly rookie dinner, picking Auburn & hoops dreams
50 episodes in, we're still celebrating firsts on All Things Covered. On this episode we connect with our first defensive tackle guest and probably the strongest person who has ever appeared on the show. Derrick Brown of the Carolina Panthers joins Patrick Peterson and Bryant McFadden (36:00 ), to cover his football journey, which at one point in time looked like it was going to be a basketball journey. But first, P2 and BMac chop it up on the aging process for athletes as Pat details how he treats his body and mind differently as he gets older (1:30 ). Then, it's time for "SKOL Check-In" as Peterson comments on the Vikings addition of Bashaud Breeland to the secondary (12:00 ). 'Has Pat Heard!?' truly puts him to the test with sports and non-sports items (17:00 ), while '7 Questions' has our guys answer the Top 5 coaches they ever went up against (28:15 ). Then it's time to bring on the man in the middle, Derrick Brown (36:00 ). DB discusses how he ended up as a football player and then how he ended up at Auburn, while remembering some epic matchups against Georgia, Alabama and Clemson. He explains all that power and explosion through some of his lifting exploits before tapping into his pro career with the Panthers. Brown shares some of his goals entering his 2nd season and what to expect from a Carolina defense featuring Brian Burns, Jaycee Horn and other promising players. Derrick tells Patrick and Bryant the craziest rookie obligation he had last year and how much he had to spend on dinner. Finally, Superlatives!
