Michael Lombardi is a gem

I’m not a podcast guy and I rarely post reviews but Michael and AD knock this out of the park every single week. Today’s episode with wild card teams as The Godfather and Sopranos characters was some of the most entertaining stuff I’ve heard in a long while and absolutely hilarious! Wish we could see you guys on YouTube sometime. Keep up the great shows, gents!

The GM Shuffle

Great podcast!!...Both hosts are extreely knowledgeable!!...I love the references to the Sopranos...good stuff!!

GD MacLeod ,

Good...but

Both Lombardi and Virk are quite good. Lombardi’s experience as an NFL executive helps provide great perspective on board room and personnel moves
My only criticism is they focus far too much on Tampa Bay, New England, Dallas, Philly and the two New Jersey teams. There are 32 teams in the league, but you’d never know.
