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!!!
Long-time friend of the Sickness and recent Super Bowl Champion Celebrator Brian Nemhauser, better known as HawkBlogger (@hawkblogger on twitter), joins us in our pre-season finale. We talk about Brian's Super Bowl experience, the Seahawks repeat opportunity, make silly predictions, and have a lot of general gridiron fun. The season is here. The time is now. GET YOUR HELMET ON!!!!
In a very special Football Sickness Podcast, Ryan Burns and Sen Sogah are joined by the illustrious Uncle Chaps: Purple Heart Marine; Jaguars fan extraordinaire; BBQ master; NFL rumor monger and general purveyor of internet intrigue. This conversation spans far and wide, touching on everything from the Jags to Johnny Football to Chaps' unbelievable military experiences to the proper wood with which to smoke your meat...it really runs the table. We even throw in a few predictions and get Chaps' nuanced Chad Henne take. Many a podcast first on this episode. It's coming at you at full NFL speed, so you had damn well better GET YOUR HELMET ON!!!
There is no such thing as going to the well too many times when that well is always flush with cool, fresh water. Similarly, there is no such thing as having the great Michael Felder (@InTheBleachers) on to preview the college season. Join Mr. Felder, Ryan Burns and Sen Sogah for an hour and a half of collegiate gridiron goodness. GET YOUR HELMET ON!!!
Every time we get together with the tour-de-force that is Football Guys' Sigmund Bloom, we come away enlightened about the game and feeling better about our selves, our lives, and somehow, even our teams. Join Ryan Burns, Sen Sogah and the illustrious Mr. Bloom for a trip around the league. Please keep your hands and arms inside the ride at all times, and hang on to those hats and glasses. In fact, probably best to just GET YOUR HELMET ON!!!
