May the Fourth be with you! I’m not a Star Wars guy but it’s still fun to say. The draft is in the past and now we can move on. I couldn’t wait to put out some rankings to talk about with all of the readers. Well, I’m not sure how many of you are reading football posts at this point of the year, but if you are, I’m glad you’re here.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Razzballers, the NFL draft that we have been talking extensively about has come and gone and now we can actually analyze the picks. Who better to have on to talk about WRs than Reception Perception creator, Matt Harmon? (Harmon’s dog even makes a special appearance!)
Side note: When my stupid mouth says St. Thomas, I mean St. Brown (ugh)
After Harmon finishes his visit with us, Reid and myself dive into our teams’ drafts (the Bucs and Bills if you’re new here). We also quickly touch on West World before Reid talked about the new Avengers film. Enjoy!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Westworld in a nutshell…
Greetings! We take one final look at our mock drafts before diving into the important stuff. Westworld!Please, blog, may I have some more?
We’ve been exhaustively talking about the draft on the podcast every week since the Super Bowl ended. Reid has been kicking ass with periodic mock drafts that are full of great thought and Buffalo Bills’ trades. I wasn’t planning on putting out a mock draft. Instead, I was going to plugging away on post draft content next week (still am) once we know who is going where. Fantasy Pros is having a mock draft contest and I can never turn down a chance to compete in literally anything. I decided that I would share my first ever mock draft with you and we can talk about it in the comment section if you like. Wish me luck, I hate losing.Please, blog, may I have some more?
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?
