(26:25-51:30 Includes Interview) Cleveland Browns
(51:30-End Includes Interview) Cincinnati Bengals
We kick things off with a short post-game for the Monday Night Football shootout between the New York Giants and Miami Dolphins (6:05-18:45.) Have the Giants finally found their groove? Is the Miami Dolphins defense overrated? And what now for the Dolphins now that they are done in the playoffs race.
Then we get into the main portion of the program with our NFL Week 14 Recap (18:45-2:06:00,) where we discuss what led to the win, what led to the loss for each game, analyze some tough decisions, and answer questions about the teams that matter. Plus another look at the crazy NFL playoff race in both conferences too. (We do have a call-in during the middle of this that calls to talk about his Buffalo Bills from 58:45-1:14:30. So that's why the Recap portion went a little longer than normal.)
Finally, we end things with a preview for the Thursday Night Football game between the Tampa Bay Bucs and the St. Louis Rams (2:06:00-2:12:50.)
Gary has his Fantasy Football Playoff waiver wire pickups and we have our Top 5 Power Rankings and the Player of the Week as well. (2:12:50-End)
We kick things off today with a short post-game on the Baltimore Ravens
vs. Cleveland Browns Monday Night Football game (5:45-20:20.) The game
was a close one up to the final play and the Browns even had to bring in
Austin Davis to replace Josh McCown. Should the Browns just use these
final games to evaluate Austin Davis instead of even thinking about
Johnny Manziel? Who should Baltimore Ravens fans and coaches be looking
at as nice pieces for next season? We discuss these things and more.
Then we get into the main portion of our program with our NFL Week 12
Recap (20:20-1:35:35.) Where we go game by game discussing the keys to
the wins and losses. We also ask questions about all the teams that
played and take a look at the muddy playoff picture in both conferences.
Who could be those wildcard teams at the end of the season? We try to
figure out that out and more.
Randy takes us through the final proper week of the College Football
(1:35:35-1:41:50) season and we take an early look at some of the
Conference Championship games too.
We finish things out with Gary's Fantasy Football pickups for Week 13,
our Top 5 Power Rankings, and our Player of the Week as well
We kick things off by doing a recap of the three NFL on Thanksgiving Day games (3:55-23:10) that occurred and wonder if anyone left on the Carolina Panthers schedule is going to beat them.
Then we get into the main part of the podcast for our NFL Week 12 Preview where we ask questions about each team, and of course make predictions on each game as well. This went from (23:10-1:28:38, around the 1:13:00 mark we had a listener call-in to the show, which took the segment to the time listed. He talked to us about his Philadelphia Eagles for a bit and we also discussed the Johnny Manziel benching situation there.)
Coming into Week 12, 23 out of 32 teams are either at 500 or below it. Obviously, there are week's left to play in the season, but this can't be what the NFL wants can it? So, we discuss the NFL's parody and if it really is as good as it is perceived to be. (1:28:38-1:35:25)
We finish things out by giving our predictions on the big College Football games that happened on Saturday (1:35:25-End)
Sean, Gary, and Randy kick things off with a short post-game for the
Thursday Night Football game between the Tennessee Titans and the
Jacksonville Jaguars. We discuss the things that led to the win for the
Jags and the loss for the Titans. We also wonder if the Titans season
is over and if Jaguars really proved they could win the AFC South with
this big win.
After that, we get into our NFL Week 11 Preview, where we answer general
questions and fantasy football questions about each team, as
well as, give an actual prediction on each game too.
Randy takes us through the big games happening this week in College
Football and we make predictions on those to round out the show.
We apologize for coming out a day later than usual, Sean had another internet outage on Monday that wasn't fixed until Tuesday morning. At least we have a podcast for you though.
We start things right off with our NFL Week 10 Recap (4:35-1:21:45) looking at all the games, probably running through them a lot faster than usual, but still answering questions about each team and before we finish with that, we do a preview for the Thursday Night tilt (1:21:45-1:25:25) between the Tennessee Titans and Jacksonville Jaguars, which one of the two young QB's will lead their team to an important AFC South divisional win? Find out who we choose right here.
After that, we discuss the one year suspension of Aldon Smith and also take a look at all of the Quarterback changes (1:25:25-1:55:45) made this week, which one will yield the most positive results? Could we see one of these guys become a permanent starter? How long should the Denver Broncos sit Peyton Manning? From Case Keenum to Brock Osweiler, we discuss all of those players and more.
Randy takes us through the third College Football Playoff Rankings (1:55:45-2:00:55) and we take a look back at another crazy week on the University Gridiron.
We move along to Gary's Fantasy Football pickups, the Top 5 Power Rankings, and the Player of the Week (2:00:55-2:11:00)
We end things with a discussion on "what exactly is a NFL catch" and examine some controversial plays and if they were actually a "catch" or not (2:11:00-End)
We kick things off today by doing a short post-game for the Cleveland
Browns vs. Cincinnati Bengals Thursday Night Football game (3:15-9:00.)
We go through what led to the loss for the Browns and the win for the
Bengals, plus we also discuss how many more weeks the Bengals stay
undefeated as well and if the Browns just need to keep Johnny Manziel as
Then we move into the main part of the show with our NFL Week 9 Preview (9 mins-1 hour and 2 mins,) where we discuss more of
the Detroit Lions woes
after they fire more people. Then we go through all the games happening
this week, discuss questions about each team, play games, and also have
Fantasy Football related questions about the matchups as well.
We finish it out with Randy leading us through some of the big games
happening in College Football Week 10 as well. (1 hour and 2 mins- End)
Sean, Gary, and Randy start things off breaking down the Monday Night
Football game between the Philadelphia Eagles and the NY Giants
(3:20-16:45) The guys wonder if this was a case of the NY Giants beating
themselves, or if the Eagles defense really is that good? Also, could
the Eagles have finally figured out how to effectively use DeMarco
Then get set to hear about every game
that occurred over the weekend, in our NFL Week 6 Recap (17:00-102:45 or
17 mins-1 hour and 42 mins,) as questions are asked about every team,
there are takeaways from each game, and some fun times mixed in there as
Randy takes everyone through the best of College Football Week 7
(102:45-108:20 or 1 hour and 42 mins-1 hour and 48 mins) and then it
ends with Gary's Top 5 Fantasy pickups, the Power Rankings, and our
Player of the Week (108:20-End or 1 hour and 48 mins-End)
Sorry we are a day later than normal, but we just had some things happen
that prevented us from doing the show on our normal night. Because of
that, our TNF post-game will be very brief.
We do ask a few questions such as: Were the Saints just ready for that
one? Or did the Falcons just have a bad game? And did the Saints save
Ryan's job? We discuss those things and more.
Then we get into our full preview of NFL Week 6, going over every game
with questions about each team, playing some Over/Under, Fact or
Fiction, and more with the match-ups. We also make predictions for each
game as well. We also talk about the Johnny Manziel arrest story in
here as well.
Since we are coming out on Saturday morning now, we are basically just
going to very quickly go through our College Football picks and that's it.
The show ends with "what to watch this week."
We start things by talking about the Monday Night Football game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the San Diego Chargers.
After this last second win by the Steelers are they feeling confident
moving forward? And how crushing of a loss was this for the Chargers at
home? We ponder those questions and more.
After that, we go full bore into our NFL Week 5 Recap, as we cover every
game, discuss some big questions about each team that played, and who
were some of the standout performers of
the weekend, and also which one of the undefeated teams has the biggest possibility of losing in Week 6.
Randy takes us through some of the big games and storylines happening in
College Football, including Steve Spurrier retiring, Will Grier being
suspend from the Florida Gators, and Steve Sarkisian fired by USC a day
after he was put on a leave of absence.
Then we end things with our Top 5 Power Rankings and Player of the Week.
