No guest this week, as we head into the holiday weekend. Just Burns and Sen Dog, talking Thanksgiving pigskin, side dishes, Rivalry Weekend and NFL week 13. As Marshawn would say..."YEAH." Happy Thanksgiving, everybody...GET YOUR HELMET ON!!!
We're excited to welcome Pro Football Focus' Steve Palazzolo to the podcast for his first visit. All the usual college and NFL discussion from Burns & Sen, plus a great chat with Steve spanning from the PFF fundamentals to his time a teammate of Buster Posey, Madison Bumgarner & crew to his thoughts on the NFL defensive rookie class, Steve brings it. GET YOUR HELMET ON!!!
We're entering mid-November and the pressure is mounting. College football approaches its regular season pinnacle, and the NFL starts to crystallize heading into the stretch run. All the usuals, plus we're joined by Dave Bartoo of CFB Matrix for some seriously high-quality college football discussion. Buckle up, and GET YOUR HELMET ON!!!
Nothing fancy about this episode, but there's more than enough pigskin to discuss. We start with the first iteration of the NCAA playoff committee's rankings, which spur plenty of discussion. Then there was the Mike Smith London Debacle of 2014 and the forthcoming Peyton-Tom renewal. It's a wonderful time to be a football fan. DON THY LEATHER FOOTBALL CAP!!!!!
America's Team went into the Clink and beat up on the Super Bowl Champs, so we thought it high time to invite our old friend KD Drummond of Cowboys HQ to come flaunt his star. KD breaks down the keys to the Cowboys success, drops a few anecdotes, we pick all the games and good times are had by all. But please, safety first: GET YOUR HELMET ON!!!
We're on to week 6 of the NFL season, which means it's time for a State of the Fantasy Landscape check-in with our old friend Andy Miley of Dynasty Blitz. We'll bounce around the league on fantasy trends and players, talk a little Steelers-Browns (Andy's a Steelers fan...I know. Gross.) and pass the pigskin around. Episode 175 of the Football Sickness Podcast: GET YOUR HELMET ON!!!
Another exciting week of football in the books, and another great slate of games in the week ahead! Everyone's attention is squarely focused on the field, and...wait, what? What's that you say? Oh. Oh my. That's quite awkward. Oh. Well, then in that case, let us put our foot in the ground and cut back with Sports Illustrated's Robert Klemko, who joins us for a discussion of the latest unfortunates off the field, including the Adrian Peterson/Ray Rice situations. We also chat with Robert about his experience in Ferguson, Missouri and do, in fact, even talk a little football. Join Ryan Burns, Sen Sogah and Robert Klemko for all this and more on the Football Sickness Podcast...GET YOUR HELMET ON!!!
Quite an opening week in (and, as it turns out, for) the NFL. A full slate of exciting and surprising games was almost immediately overshadowed by off-the-field drama. We'll deal with all of it, of course, but our focus is on the game. Plenty of NFL and college football to discuss. Good times had by all, despite the necessaries. It's a soft landing, but you'll still want to GET YOUR HELMET ON!!!
