Great Vikes Pod

Great pod. Matthew does a good job of being unbiased and is increasingly looking at the team from a modern lens - basing his opinion on data and finding guests who are experts. I think the final challenge is injecting a little more fact-based analysis into offensive line discussions, as Jeremiah (journeymen pro) has very old school beliefs about “playing in the trenches”. For example - Pat Elflein is not playing well for the Jets. He is PFF’s 79th ranked guard.

Kalyn Kahler & Courtney Cronin

Matt, I’m an old guy(70) and I remember when Phillis George came into the sports landscape. It was a big deal. I’m amazed that how good the young ladies Kaylin and Courtney have become. They are a pleasure to listen to their insights. In listening to you work with them, both ladies seem to feel very comfortable working with you. Love your subjects and range of guests. Keep up the great work.
