Wilson decides to Rage

Posted by Darren Urban on July 22, 2010 – 10:12 am

I know there have been a bunch of people wondering about The Big Red Rage after Bertrand Berry’s retirement. It’s official now; Adrian Wilson has agreed to take over the co-hosting spot with Ron Wolfley and Paul Calvisi. That should be a good thing (although my Wilson story being posted tomorrow is purely coincidental; it’s not like this is a big PR push).

Speaking of Wolf, how about this shot from the wayback machine, featuring (from left to right) Neil Lomax, Wolf, Vai Sikahema and Luis Sharpe once upon a time (Yes, I’ve been waiting for some reason to post this. This seems as good a time as any):

    It will still be at the Chandler Majerle’s, yes. There is a pre-camp show scheduled for July 29.

    Wow, talk about a blast from the past. I always liked Lomax; he and Roy Green were as fun to watch as Jim Hart and Mel Gray back in the days of Air Coryell. It’s a shame the hip condition cut his career short.

    I wanna see A-Dub stare down Paul Calvisi like he did Rich Eisen. Not like Paul did anything wrong but still it would be interesting to see.

    new host for the BRR, does that mean we can get new intro music too, maybe one that doesn’t take 10 minutes lol

    Bert will be missed though.

    Baggs is listed at 240. As for making the team, it’s a little early to tell.

    maybe he can help paul be more positive. I love wolf, that guy is all enthusiasm and one hundred percent fun but the second anything goes wrong in a game calvisi seems to be like “same old cardinals’ and it drives me freaking nuts. I am not saying he has to be a blind homer but I know when things are going bad i dont need him to add to my pain through end of the world commentary.

    it is kind of funny that they will have a guy known for not talking being the radio guy. i think it will be great for A dub and great for the show but honestly i am going to miss Berry.

    Wolf used to be a good lookin cat,,,,,what happened?

    Berry will be missed for sure. Interesting that Wilson will be taking over. I think he would have been the last guy I would have named if asked who on our roster would take over hosting. I’m looking forward to.

    I really like A-Dub. All pro and a gentle man.

    And I really like Schofield already. Great note on his rehab.

    Bryan- I think Baggs will make the roster. He is a great pass rusher and he will show well in obvious passing situations.

    Darren- do you know what Sikahema is doing now? I saw him guesting on Friday night fights about two years ago. He was extremely knowledgeable and I think he had just flattened Jose Canseco in a celebrity boxing match.

    He is a sports anchor at a Philadelphia TV station.

    Wilson taking over is awesome. To me it’s great because at least I never really hear much from him. IMO he’s not much of a talker. He’s more a destroyer. That picture is awesome. I never saw a game with those guys together. The only one I saw play was sharpe. Still the last pure LT they had. I remember these guys from super tecmo bowl.

    Nice pic.

    A-dub is one of the top 2 or 3 SS in the league. Bar none. He is a ring of honor candidate, now. Forget the end of his career. I love me some CARDS…

    Hi Darren, Loved the Wilson article and love the old picture. You should do an article every now and then about some of the older guys and let us see where they are now and what they are up to. Also any updates on how players of the past that are in need are being helped by the players assoc, or by current league, teams, and players.
