    AFC West Preview: Let’s All Yell About Jon Gruden | NFL Deep Dive

    AFC West Preview: Let’s All Yell About Jon Gruden | NFL Deep Dive

    The Division Preview series moves on to the AFC West, where Jenny, Conor and Gary wanted to talk about pretty much everything except Patrick Mahomes.
    The Chiefs are penciled in as heavy favorites again, but who will emerge as their top challenger within the division? A look at why expectations for the Chargers should be high for reasons that go beyond Justin Herbert. The Broncos have the pass rush and the secondary is shaping up for a bounceback season—the question is whether the offense can keep this from becoming Vic Fangio’s last stand.
    But most of the show is devoted to shouting about Jon Gruden, still looking for his first playoff berth since signing that mega-deal to take over the Las Vegas Raiders. Now that they’ve re-acquired a potential game-altering pass rusher in Yannick Ngakoue, does Gruden have the pieces to get to the postseason?
    Plus, our weekly Mad Libs, predicted order of finish and more!

    NFC East Preview: Poor in Talent But... Rich in Parity? | NFL Deep Dive

    NFC East Preview: Poor in Talent But... Rich in Parity? | NFL Deep Dive

    As the division preview series moves on, Jenny, Conor and Gary arrive at the NFC East, the division with nowhere to go but up.
    A discussion of Ryan Fitzpatrick—maybe the missing piece, maybe a ticking time bomb—in Washington, and just how good the Football Team defense was and can be. A look at the kinda-but-not-really make-or-break year for Daniel Jones and Jason Garrett, now that the Giants have upgraded their weapons. The Cowboys bring back Dak—and bring in Hard Knocks—but it’s the re-re-made defense that will decide Dallas’s fate. And what exactly is going on with the Eagles’ weird treatment of Jalen Hurts, who they seem already resigned to move on from as soon as they can?
    Plus, more Mad Libs, our NFC East predictions poll, an absolutely irresponsible comparison between the 2020 Bucs and the 2021 Football Team, and plenty more.

    The Bad (and Good!) of the AFC East | NFL Deep Dive

    The Bad (and Good!) of the AFC East | NFL Deep Dive

    Chapter 3 of the Division Preview Octology has arrived, as Jenny, Conor and Gary break down all things AFC East.
    Bill Belichick has his hand-picked QB and some old friends on the defensive side of the ball as the Patriots redemption tour gets underway; how good they can be, and a much-needed reset of the draft-season narrative on Mac Jones. Plus, Brian Daboll looks for a repeat performance with Josh Allen while Greg Rousseau brings a fascinating piece to Buffalo's defense, the Dolphins brought in some new kinds of weapons for Tua, and everything you want to know and more about the Jets' offensive line (now featuring Morgan Moses!).
    Plus, more incremental improvement from Conor on the latest edition of Mad Libs, and sorting out just which of these teams should be thinking Super Bowl contention, playoff contention, or neither.

    Spiking the Punch in the NFC West | NFL Deep Dive

    Spiking the Punch in the NFC West | NFL Deep Dive

    The Division Preview Series moves on to the bluebloods of the NFC West, where all the most interesting QB-coach marriages live.
    What do Jenny, Conor and Gary make of the upgrade from Jared Goff to Matthew Stafford? Does this ramp up the pressure on Sean McVay? Does Les Snead catch some heat if a thin defense falls apart? And is anything less than a Super Bowl acceptable for the Rams?
    A look at Trey Lance and all the many reasons this isn't like the RG3-Kyle Shanahan setup in Washington. Examining the Seahawks' search for answers with a Russell Wilson-centric offense, and finding a solution for Jamal Adams on defense. And does Kliff Kingsbury's offense have anything beyond a cool name—and could Rondale Moore be the alcohol that spikes the red Kool-Aid?
    Plus, our preseason poll for order of finish, a division preview Mad Libs-style, Conor's anti-bucket list, lots of powdered beverages and so much more.

    How the AFC North Will Be Won | NFL Deep Dive

    How the AFC North Will Be Won | NFL Deep Dive

    It's that time of year: A deeper look at how each of the divisions are shaping up in the first of our eight division previews. It’s a look at the AFC North.
    Who was the best veteran addition in the division? The most intriguing rookie? Which coach—head or assistant—are we keeping an eye on in 2021?
    The Ravens’ work solidifying their roster, the Steelers offensive question marks, the never-overwhelming expectations of the Bengals, and the bona fide (according to one host) Super Bowl aspirations of the Cleveland Browns. Plus, an unveiling of our absolutely unassailable collective projection for the order of finish in the AFC North.
    But the true highlight of this episode is AFC North mad libs, a wonderful idea from Conor that went swimmingly once Conor understood how Mad Libs work.

    Resolving Aaron Rodgers and Jordan Love: The Game Show | NFL Deep Dive

    Resolving Aaron Rodgers and Jordan Love: The Game Show | NFL Deep Dive

    Jenny, Conor and Gary—again, and surely not for the last time—revisit Aaron Rodgers in light of his holdout from OTAs. A discussion of the possible outcomes if the GM isn't going anywhere, and what the Packers need to do to get this resolved.
    Then, the new game show that's basically on the verge of sweeping the nation: Four blind items about NFL quarterbacks when they were young, and what people wrote about them. It's Jenny vs. Conor, winner takes all. (All of what? We're not sure yet.)
    And, finally but most importantly, a discussion on the state of vaccinations around the league, and why it's so disheartening.

Great podcast, and

Please, please ditch the fantasy segment. If fantasy is that popular, give them their own like you did betting.

Bring back Albert Breer

Ditch this show

R2RS88 ,

No Andy no listen. Albert stinks!

Andy gave you a great perspective on the games. They gave you facts and then educated opinions. A must for real football fans.

Albert being forced down my throat. He is a joke. The single worse I have ever heard. Fire that clown and please separate the pods as I like Andy but Albert will force me to cancel the podcast all together. Albert is terrible. No idea how he has a job. Albert knows nothing and brings absolutely nothing of value to the podcast. He’s just the worse

Now Andy is gone. What a joke and one less listener. Don’t give it a try. You will thank me.
