Each week, I'll tell you about games, players, coaches, and teams who aren't necessarily forgotten but are not as well-known as they should be. This isn't just a podcast for those whose memory will be jogged by these retellings. I'm 22 years old, and I'm an advocate for a greater historical perspective among younger NFL fans. So come join me as I take my weekly trip upstairs into the Football Attic. Just be sure to watch your step!"
