Solid stuff

They talk about football in a NOT SHOUTING hot takes skip bayless kind of way. Actually smart guys who bring up good points both stats wise and talk about futures / Xs and Os. Have made money making some bets after listening to some episodes

Unique Football Perspective

The combo of data driven thinking and experience in an NFL organization as a decision maker makes the pod stand out.

Appreciate the humility of both Eric and Thomas to have strong opinions while understanding that there are limitations to doing things solely their way (modeling and traditional scouting respectively).

Some of the most informative football conversations out there. Stats and schemes is also an incredibly valuable listen.
