Monday Night Football on ABC and The Tyrod Taylor Injury - The Kickoff

Join host Harry Broadhurst, Erik Watkins, Jason Teasley, and Randy Isbelle as they present their unique looks at the worlds of professional and college football, mixing a blend of statistical knowledge with razor-sharp wit.

A brief dedication of the show (RIP Gale Sayers) leads us to open with "Studs and Duds", highlighting the best and worst performances from the week. "So That Happened" brings your news stories to the table as the guys discuss the injury bug hitting hard still, Monday Night Football being back on broadcast TV for the first time in fifteen years, Nebraska playing with fire and the schedule maker burning them and the team doctor for the Chargers screwing up so badly, it may have been criminal. "I've Got a Question" makes it's the full debut for the year as the guys tackle the fans or no fans conundrum, if the Pac12 has a chance of sniffing the CFP and rather or not the players union will step in if the injuries continue to pile up. Finally, we once again "Pour One Out For the Homers" as the panel discusses their favorite teams, both talking games played and previewing the games this weekend.

The prediction segments remain intact as well. "I'm a Survivor" did something for the first time last week. The hope is to repeat that while we still wait for Mama Watkins to debut (we made a sound effect and everything!). "Are You Serious?" wasn't quite as fortunate as week one, but the boys are still hitting a combined 63% against the spread. A battle commenced calling a couple of the games and some feelings got hurt. Whose and what game? Tune in to find out...

The Injured List, Hit the Showers, The Big Ten Returns and a Saquon Shutdown - The Kickoff

This week on The Kickoff, join host Harry Broadhurst, Erik Watkins, Jason Teasley, and Randy Isbelle as they present their unique looks at the worlds of professional and college football, mixing a blend of statistical knowledge with razor-sharp wit.

It's a new season but the same old show format you've come to know and love from The Kickoff. We open with "Studs and Duds", highlighting the best and worst performances from the week. "So That Happened" brings your news stories to the table as the guys discuss ejections in two games, a slew of major injuries, the Big Ten returning earlier than scheduled, and Randy getting Jason's goat about Saquon's struggles. "I've Got a Question" returns in an abbreviated format as well until we get more information to work with. Finally, we once again "Pour One Out For the Homers" as the four favorite personal teams are discussed as well as some early season college ball.

The prediction segments remain intact as well. "I'm a Survivor" again has no Mama Watkins (she's on her way, we promise) but does have our first bust-outs already from week 1. "Are You Serious?" did something it's not done in a long time and made a little change doing it. Can the guys keep things going their way?
