Well, it has finally happened, Robert Griffin III has signed with a NFL
team and we will discuss that right here. Will he actually be the

We kick things off tonight by discussing all of the coaching changes and
decisions by teams, including the surprise firing of Lovie Smith, Tom
Coughlin stepping down, Sean Payton staying in New Orleans and more.
Then we transition to going game by game and doing a NFL Wildcard
Weekend Preview, discussing each game, going over strengths and
weaknesses of each team and also giving out predictions for them as
well. We also go ahead and give predictions for the rest of the NFL
Playoffs here as
Finally, we spend a little time talking about the National Championship Game that happens on Monday night.
We kick things off with a short post-game for the Monday Night Football
shootout between the Detroit Lions and New Orleans Saints (6:00-17:10.)
Even though it didn't matter for playoff contention, there are questions
facing the coaching staffs for both teams. We try to answer those as
well as discuss some key points about the game as well.
After that, we get into the main portion of our program with our NFL
Week 15 Recap (17:10-1:18:44) where we discuss all the games, breakdown
to the win and the
loss, answer questions about the teams that matter, and look at some
other things too. Don't miss our NFL Week 15 Recap.

Week 16 Preview podcast on Thursday morning.
Finally we end things with a look at our NFL Pick'em standings, Gary's
Top 5 Fantasy Football pickups for the Championship games, our Top 5
Power Rankings, and our Player of the Week (1:25:07-End)
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.)

Football game between the Green Bay Packers and the Detroit Lions

this be a loss that haunts the Lions the rest of the way? We discuss
those things and more.

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

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)
