If you haven’t heard of Charles McDonald yet, it won’t be long. He’s one of the fastest rising stars in the football media world and a celebrated film watcher for #footballtwitter. You can check out his awesome work at Setting the Edge and Football Outsiders.

We start the Podcast by talking about his presentation at the Sloan analytics conference in Boston and that rolls right into story time about his first experience at the combine. From hanging out with Big Cat and PFT Commenter to meeting Andy Reid at the airport, Chuck made the most of his time in Indianapolis.

We also had a great conversation about draft prospects and the happenings in free agency. Football knowledge and fun all in one episode.

Please, blog, may I have some more?

Yesterday was the cut off for franchise tags which makes the free agency picture a little bit clearer. Free agency is coming up next week so I suppose we should talk about the players on the market. What teams plan on doing in the draft seems as relevant as ever when it comes to free agency this year. There are a lot of teams in need of a quarterback. If you’ve been paying attention to mock draft related things, you’re well aware that there is a good chance that 5-7 quarterbacks go in the first round. Of these 5-7, my guess is 3 see more than a handful of starts this season depending on their landing spots. That leaves a few teams who need starters from the free agency pool.

In this free agency running back class, I don’t see much more than running back by committee contributors. The running back class is very deep as far as this upcoming draft goes, so I’m doubting anyone makes a huge financial splash. Wide receiver is going to be interesting. There are a couple of big playmakers whose services are available. Speculating is all that we can really do here, so let’s run through some of the players and talk about ideal landing spots.

We continue our off season journey joined by special guest and resident Eagle’s fan Mike Maher. Mike talks about the future of Nick Foles, Legarrette Blount and the tight cap that the Eagles are up against.

Reid and Viz join us as well to talk about the impending free agency class. Reid adds to his weekly Hue Jackson rant series, and we all dig into the dinosaur coach problem in the NFL.

Hey Razzballers. Reid here going to give you a new mock draft since all the big-wigs are doing new ones as well. I’m going to try and project some Free Agent signings and some draft pick trades as well in this one.

Here are some of the Free Agent assumptions I’m making that will impact the way in which some teams will draft:

Kirk Cousins to the NYJ

A.J. McCarron to the Arizona Cardinals

Tyrod Taylor to the Denver Broncos

Case Keenum stays in Minnesota

The Eagles won the Super Bowl! Of course, America wins in the battle of the most patriotic mascots in the NFL. I think that the best part is that the Patriots got beat without any fluky helmet catches and by a quarterback not named Eli Manning. BDN Foles (deconstructed abbreviation NSFW) put together his second straight clutch performance for the Eagles. The RPOs, the beautiful RPOs. They’re so hot right now. It’s like if the wildcat was sustainable and effective. When it was all said and done, it was a great season finale of NFL Football. It was right on par with any Breaking Bad finale and much better than the latest season finale of Game of Thrones.

Speaking of prestige television, did you cry when you saw how Jack died? Yes, you did. You bawled harder than your wife and she had to hold you while you sobbed. Don’t pretend you didn’t stay after the game for This Is Us. Westworld and This is Us, be a guy who can enjoy both. Or don’t, there’s more to strive for in life. Reading about fantasy football in February is a great start! About a week and a half ago, I covered quarterbacks and running backs, so you should check that out. It’s time to put the 2017 season in the past once and for all with reviewing the wide receiver and tight end positions.

I am joined by Zach, Reid, and Son to preview Super Bowl 52. After predicting the actual game results within itself, we talk about all of the fun prop bets there are as well as the smart plays for player props. After we finish up with the Super Bowl, we close up shop talking about the Alex Smith trade and the future of the 2018 quarterback market.

I am back from my football blogging sabbatical and ready for the off season. I have no interest in this crumby Super Bowl, so I’m ready to dive right into the offseason. What better way to start than to review the 2017 season? There could have been stuff that you missed, you never know. Maybe something that you read in this will stick in your brain until your draft season in August. Will you remember which article you read it from? Probably not, It’s January.

I’m surprised you even clicked on this, you must be bored. What you will probably remember from my posts when your drafts roll around in August is my grotesque misunderstanding of English grammar. I’ll probably over use some commas, or not use enough commas. Do they teach 6th grade grammar at the local community college? Better yet, maybe you would prefer that I disperse of fantasy football knowledge through the use of emojis. That would be edgy, and no one has done it yet! (Simpsons did it!) Alright stop. I’m going to go through the quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers, and tight ends to let you know what stuck out to me this season. Today, let’s start with the quarterbacks and running backs.
