We are days away from The 2016 NFL Draft and there isn’t a better way to get you ready for that than doing our 2016 NFL Draft Preview. We do our own version of a Round 1 Mock Draft and also drop down to see what the New England Patriots do in the lower part of the second round. We give out some possibilities of trades and players we are looking at in the second and third round as well. This will definitely be something you will want to check out.
That’s not all though, as Tom Brady received
bad news yesterday morning, as his four game suspension has been reinstated and he may not be able to win an appeal this time. The Philadelphia Eagles also received bad news from Sam Bradford that he wants to be traded. We also give our two cents on the Josh Norman deal and how it affects the Washington Redskins draft.

Football 2 the MAX: Eagles and Browns Trade, Josh Norman Franchise Tag Rescinded, & Off-Season Analysis: Entire NFC East
Another week closer to the NFL Draft and another crazy deal happened as well. This time for the number two pick in the draft went to another team. The Eagles and Browns trade now sees the Eagles poised to take one of the Quarterbacks, while the Browns can stock up on picks. It is even possible that the Browns trade down again before it is all said and done.
There’s also the big news of Josh Norman being untendered by the Carolina Panthers and allowed to become an unrestricted free agent. We
discuss where he could land and if this shakes up the draft at all.
Finally, we end our NFL Off-Season Analysis by looking at the entire NFC East in one show. Last Word on Sports Writer Quinton Mayo makes his debut on the podcast talking about the Washington Redskins, Wayne Curtis joins us to talk Dallas Cowboys, Brandon Biskobing returns to blab about the New York Giants, and Anthony Rouh makes another appearance to give his perspective on the big trade and his Philadelphia Eagles.

I want to apologize upfront for the audio issues on this episode. The studio we use to record our live podcasts updated and apparently created problems for us that I (Sean) couldn't hear until the final product was created.
I can't do anything about this popping sound that happens when Randy and Gary talk, I sound clear the whole show though. This will be fixed for our next episode on Sunday night though.
If you want to listen to this anyway, the description and timestamps are
We kick things off by discussing some of the NFL news that's been going around with Johnny Manziel and the situation with his girlfriend, the Rooney rule instituted for women involving executive positions, DeMarco Murray being uncomfortable in Philadelphia, and Colin Kapernick wanting out of San Francisco.
Then we finish things out with the our Super Bowl 50 Preview Part 2.
This is where we discuss the Denver Broncos offense vs. the Carolina Panthers defense. Can Peyton Manning outdo this Panthers front seven? Will it be turnover city for the Broncos offense? How many sacks could the Panthers get on the Broncos QB? We discuss and try to answer all that the best we can.

We do weave in discussions on the Doug Pederson hire by the Philadelphia Eagles and the Tennessee Titans retaining Mike Mularkey as well.
We then finish things out by having a discussion about Cam Newton throwing away the 12th man flag, and if
the NFL needs more players like Cam that have fun and celebrate more.

We kick things off with a discussion on the move of the Rams back to Los Angeles and we also talk about all the recent coaching hires that have occurred since the last time we did a podcast. Can Hue Jackson really turn the Cleveland Browns around? Will the promotions for the Bucs and Giants really carry them to the next level? What about Chip Kelly in San Francisco? Does this mean Collin Kapernick is a Quarterback in the NFL again? We discuss all of this and more.
Then we finish things

Due to the NFL regular season nearly coming to a close and another holiday happening on Thursday night into Friday, we are basically doing two podcasts on one night. Don't worry, we will still be doing all the things we normally do, plus talk about some of the big news of the day like Chip Kelly fired from his position as Philadelphia Eagles head coach and more.
We kick things off with a short post-game for the Cincinnati Bengals and Denver Broncos Monday Night Football game. This leads
directly into discussing if the Broncos could go far in the playoffs and how AJ McCarron's injury will affect the Bengals going forward. Then we end things here by talking about Peyton Manning and if we believe the HGH reports (10:00-26:05)
After that, we do a mixture of looking back at NFL Week 16, discussing the games that mattered, our level of concern for each of the playoff teams, and we also do a full NFL Week 17 Preview in here as well making predictions for all of the games and how they affect the playoff scenarios. We also talk about Chip Kelly Fired as Eagles coach, Gus Bradley staying as Jacksonville Jaguars coach, and more in there as well. (26:05-1:47:07)

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)
