    Baker & Lamar at contract crossroads, AFC's power vacuum & trade deadline buyers/sellers

    Baker & Lamar at contract crossroads, AFC's power vacuum & trade deadline buyers/sellers

    Baker Mayfield & Lamar Jackson, the first and last picks of the 2018 NFL draft, are at a crossroads. A handful of games into their fourth season, Mayfield has a torn labrum in his non-throwing shoulder and is expected to miss at least a week in what may be a lost season for both the young QB and his franchise. Jackson, on the other hand, has been electric and his Baltimore Ravens are 5-1, in pole position for AFC's top seed in the playoffs.

    Charles Robinson is joined this week by Eric Edholm & they kick off the podcast discussing how Baker & Lamar are trending in opposite directions as both of their teams weigh whether or not to give them a contract extension this upcoming offseason.

    Spinning off that, the guys chat about Monday night's surprising Titans win over the Buffalo Bills, the surprisingly 4-2 Cincinnati Bengals and a wide open AFC that, if the season ended today, would shockingly see the Kansas City Chiefs out of playoff contention.

    In the second half of the podcast, Charles & Eric predict a few teams who may be buyers or sellers at November's trade deadline. Should the Packers and Cowboys try to bolster their defenses in anticipation of a Super Bowl run? When should the Seattle Seahawks call it quits on a season without Russell Wilson & trade away some players for future assets?

    Week 6 Sunday Night Freestyle: No more questions about Dallas & Arizona

    Week 6 Sunday Night Freestyle: No more questions about Dallas & Arizona

    After five weeks, maybe you thought the hot starts by the Dallas Cowboys & Arizona Cardinals were a fluke. Neither performed well in 2020, so maybe 2021 was just more smoke & mirrors from these two NFC squads. Well, after exciting & impressive wins over the New England Patriots & Cleveland Browns, it may be fair to call these teams legit Super Bowl contenders.

    Charles Robinson & Frank Schwab kick off the podcast reacting to Pittsburgh's OT win over Seattle, they dive into Dallas & Arizona's continued success & share their thoughts on the rest of Sunday's Week 6 action. Are the Minnesota Vikings rounding into playoff form? Can the Baltimore Ravens compete for a 1-seed in the AFC? How much time is left on Vic Fangio's career in Denver?

    Gruden's emails, an impending NFL legal disaster & 3 teams we're worried about

    Gruden's emails, an impending NFL legal disaster & 3 teams we're worried about

    Everyone knows the headline by now. On Monday evening, after a plethora of disgusting & offensive emails were leaked, first by the Wall Street Journal, and later by the New York Times, Las Vegas Raiders head coach Jon Gruden abruptly resigned, likely never to hold a significant position in or around the NFL ever again.

    Charles Robinson is joined by NBC's Michael Smith to discuss the aftermath of this seismic blow to one of the league's most storied franchises and iconic coaches. A few questions still linger: if the Raiders received these emails on Friday, why was this information sat on until the Times leaked it? What league figures could be implicated in future leaks?

    Charles & Michael discuss those issues as well as one more: why the NFL should be scared about how these email leaks may play into its ongoing legal troubles in St. Louis & Oakland after the Rams & Raiders respectively left town.

    Later in the show, the guys talk about ESPN adding a wild card game to their Monday Night Football slate & Michael's unhealthy Madden obsession.

    In the second half, Charles & Michael break down the three teams they're worried about most in the NFL & as well as the one NFC team every other squad should be afraid of in January. (41:35)

    Week 5 Sunday Night Freestyle: Bills claim revenge for AFC title loss, Chargers prove they may be best in west

    Week 5 Sunday Night Freestyle: Bills claim revenge for AFC title loss, Chargers prove they may be best in west

    The second lightning storm in the AFC West this week wasn't going to stop the Buffalo Bills from claiming pole position for the 1-seed. The Bills came into Arrowhead, where they were defeated last January and put a number on the Kansas City Chiefs and made the case that they are the best team in not only the AFC, but perhaps the league.

    Charles Robinson & Frank Schwab react to all of the games from Sunday's Week 5 action including the aforementioned Bills/Chiefs rematch, a nail biting Green Bay Packers win over a surprisingly resilient Cincinnati Bengals team, an epic Browns/Chargers duel and an Atlanta Falcons win in London that saw the Dirty Birds finally unlock rookie TE Kyle Pitts.

    Urban Meyer's folly delights league & the impact of the Stephon Gilmore trade

    Urban Meyer's folly delights league & the impact of the Stephon Gilmore trade

    By now, we've all seen the video of Urban Meyer getting cozy with a woman at his bar in Ohio, the night after his Jacksonville Jaguars suffered a Thursday night loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. It's not great. Even worse, Meyer spent the following days sheepishly apologizing for his behavior, invoking his grandchildren, making comparisons to Trevor Lawrence's bachelor party. Overall, it was not a good look — and the 31 other teams in the NFL absolutely loved it.

    Charles Robinson is joined by none other than Yahoo's Dan Wetzel this week to break down why this is such an unforced embarrassment by the football's king of moralizing: Urban Meyer.

    Later in the podcast, Charles & Dan react to the Wednesday morning news of the New England Patriots sending former defensive player of the year Stephon Gilmore to the Carolina Panthers, who are clearly going all-in on an already stout defense. They also discuss the Dallas Cowboys parting ways with linebacker Jaylon Smith.

    To wrap up the show, the guys preview the Buffalo Bills & Kansas City Chiefs facing off in an AFC championship rematch, a battle between two up-and-coming teams in the Los Angeles Chargers and Cleveland Browns and if the Arizona Cardinals can pull off their fifth win of the season against the San Francisco 49ers.

    Week 4 Sunday Night Freestyle: Brady outlasts Pats in the rain, Cards make case as best in the west

    Week 4 Sunday Night Freestyle: Brady outlasts Pats in the rain, Cards make case as best in the west

    Charles Robinson is joined by Frank Schwab to recap all of the games from Sunday's Week 4 slate. Tom Brady pulled out an emotional win over his former New England Patriots in a rainy, sloppy affair that concluded with a Nick Folk field goal ricocheting off a goal post. The Arizona Cardinals upset the Los Angeles Rams on the road and made the case that they may not only be the best team in the NFC West, but the entire league.

    They also chat about the New York Jets and Giants pulling off their first win of the season, whether Jimmy Garoppolo will start another game for the San Francisco 49ers and if Taylor Heinicke is the answer at QB for the Washington Football Team.
