#CrossingTheLine is back with Jesse Rosales (@5280Jesse) and Keith Richards (@5280Keith) as they discuss the Cubs World Series win. The guys analysis game seven, the decisions made by the managers and the implications for each team. Jesse and Keith also get into their 2nd quarter/halftime grades for each division in the NFL, declaring who they think is the best division in the NFL, the worst division, and everything in between. Before talking about What’s On Tap for the next week in sports, the guys introduce a new segment called Not Overly Complicated in which they touch on the NCAA, umpires in the MLB, and NFL refs.
This edition of the podcast is coming out a little early due to the holidays, so we basically just start out doing the NFL Week 16 Preview (10:00-1:14:45.)
We discuss and breakdown all the games happening this week, answer questions about the teams that matter, take a look at some key fantasy matchups that will be important for those Fantasy Football Championship games and more.
Then we finish things out by going over some of the College Bowl games (1:14:45-End) and making predictions from
the Bahamas Bowl to the Quick Lane Bowl. We will do the rest on our NFL Week 16 Recap podcast on Tuesday morning.
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 the keys
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.
Randy goes through the College Bowl games that have happened to this point and we make predictions from the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl until the GoDaddy.com Bowl (1:18:44-1:25:07) and leave the rest for our NFL 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.)
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 by doing a short post-game for the ridiculous Monday Night Football game between the Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins (4:30-14:45.) We wonder if Washington is still the favorite in the division after their last minute loss and if the Cowboys should actually have some belief after the big win.
After that, we get into the main portion of our program where we go game by game and do a full NFL Week 13 Recap (14:45-2:09:35) asking questions about every team, look at the
playoff standings, who played well, who didn't, and who's on the way to playing well into January.
Randy takes us through the College Football Conference Championship games (2:09:35-2:20:30) and we give some early thoughts on what the National Title game might look like.
Finally, we end things with Gary's Fantasy Football Week 14 waiver wire pickups, the Top 5 Power Rankings, and our Player of the Week too (2:20:30-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 (1:41:50-End.)
Football 2 Futbol: NFL Week 10 Recap, Examining the Week 11 Quarterback Changes & What is a NFL Catch?
Then we get into the meat of our show, with a NFL Week 9 Recap (16 mins - 1 hour and 32 mins) where we discuss the ins and outs of all the games that took place on
Sunday. Who looks good? Who looks bad? We answer questions about each team that played and also do a short preview for the TNF game between the Bills and Jets as well.
We round things out with Randy leading everyone through a look at the big match-ups in College Football Week 10 (1 hour and 32 mins - 1 hour and 38 mins.) After that we finish it out with Gary's Fantasy Football Pickups, the Top 5 Power Rankings, and our Player of the Week (1 hour and 38 mins- End.)
Sorry for not having a Week 7 Preview Podcast, Sean had a major internet outage that made it impossible to do the show. But no worries, we are here to breakdown and discuss everything that occurred in Week 8 of the 2015 NFL Season.
We begin by going over and discussing some of the major points that occurred in the over-time thriller between the Indianapolis Colts and the Carolina Panthers on Monday Night Football (4:00-9:00.) Are the Carolina Panthers the premier team in the NFC after this
win? And are there more positives than negatives for the Colts after the loss? We discuss this and more.
After that, we get into our full NFL Week 8 Recap (9:00-86:20 or 9:00- 1 hour and 26 mins) by going through every game, discussing questions about each team that played, who looks good, who looks bad, and we also delve into the Vernon Davis trade to the Broncos, the benching of Colin Kapernick, what do the Detroit Lions do and more.
Randy takes everyone through the highlights of College Football Week 9, including the three of us talking at length about the crazy play at the end of the Miami vs. Duke game and the decision to suspend all of those referees. (86:20-95:40 or 1 hour and 26 mins- 1 hour and 35 mins)
Finally, we transition things back to the NFL, for Gary's Top 5 Fantasy Football Pickups (95:40-98:55 or 1 hour and 35 mins- 1 hour and 38 mins,) the Top 5 Power Rankings (98:55-End or 1 hour and 38 mins-End) and our Player of the Week.
Sean, Gary, and Randy start things off by doing a short post-game for the Monday Night Football game between the Baltimore Ravens vs. Arizona Cardinals (2:45-10:45)
This one came down to the wire, but it was a Joe Flacco interception that sealed the deal. Now at 1-6 for the season, is it time to stick a fork in the Ravens? Could teams now be just as worried about that Cardinals defense as they are the offense? We discuss these questions and more.
Then we get into our full NFL Week 7 Recap
(10:45-85:45, or 10:45- 1 hour and 25 mins) as we go through every game talking about each team, who looks good, who looks bad, and also answer some lingering questions as well.
Randy takes everyone through the big results in College Football Week 8 and we head back to the NFL side of things to finish out with Gary's Top 5 Fantasy Pick-ups for Week 8, Our Top 5 Power Rankings, and the Player of the Week. (85:45-End or 1 hour and 25 mins-End)
