Reid joins me to talk about what could be in store in 2018 for Dez Bryant. There’s teams out there that need wide receivers, but who wants him? We also dive into whether or not Gronkowski will play in the NFL next year. We talked about C.J. Anderson fits, and if we should worry about Andrew Luck in 2018. We close out by reviewing the Andre The Giant documentary that we both saw this past weekend.Please, blog, may I have some more?
The hockey guys Viz and Reid join me for what is pretty much self explanatory in the title. We definitely had fun with it…
- First Pick in the Draft.
- Chubb vs. Michel.
- Sutton Vs. Ridley.
- Over/Under on Alabama Players going in the 1st round.
- LSU Vs. OSU players taken in rounds 1 & 2.
- Iowa vs. Texas players taken in rounds 1 & 2.
While all the coaches posed for a picture in Orlando at the league meetings, Bill Belichick was once again absent. He was somewhere hunched over and scowling about the Patriot’s bitter Super Bowl defeat and thinking about how he can get the most bang for his buck for the 2018 roster. Anger continues to build as he continues to accept that the Eagles flat out built a better roster than he had. “We’re onto roster building.”
I was listening to the Will Cain show on my way home from work as I am often forced to because I’m too lazy to sync my phone to blue tooth sometimes. “It’s a short drive, I can handle it.” That what I tell myself as William babbles aimlessly about his opinions on sports. All of a sudden, my ears perked up as he was talking to a guest about trading Rob Gronkowski. I didn’t catch the guests’ name but he brought up how the Patriots tend to go with the element of surprise when it comes to trades. Before the Patriots traded Brandin Cooks to the Rams on Tuesday, this guy had already dismissed the possibility of Gronkowski being traded. Trading Cooks makes me believe that the Patriots want to keep Gronkowski around for 2018. It doesn’t make sense to trade both of your best weapons in the passing game in one offseason.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Zach is back! He joins Reid and myself to talk about the last couple of weeks in the NFL…
- Jets trade up to 3.
- What can the Bills do to get their quarterback?
- What are the Raiders doing?
- Can we trust the Jags offense?
- What should the Giants do with their number two pick?

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?
Reid joins me for a quick review of the big combine story lines. We talked about peculiar questions that the draft prospects receive and what needs to happen to change them. We also dive into a big draft climber and a free faller. We finish up by taking our final guesses for landing spots for the biggest free agents.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.Please, blog, may I have some more?
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.Please, blog, may I have some more?
We have been away for a couple of weeks so we wanted to cover as much as possible. Most of my conversation with Reid covered the position under center in both free agency and the draft. We managed to talk about recent Jarvis Landry and Doug Martin news as well.Please, blog, may I have some more?
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.Please, blog, may I have some more?
