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.)

Conference Championship games (1:12:45-End) happening on Saturday as
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.

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)
