    Week 2 Sunday Night Freestyle: Quoth the Ravens, 'game'

    Week 2 Sunday Night Freestyle: Quoth the Ravens, 'game'

    Faced with a 4th and one near midfield with a one-point lead, Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens had two choices: punt the ball and give Patrick Mahomes about a minute to win the game, or go for it and ice the Kansas City Chiefs. Coach John Harbaugh left the choice up to Jackson and the rest was history.

    Charles Robinson & Frank Schwab kick off the Sunday night podcast reacting to all 14 games from Sunday's Week 2 action including the Ravens' incredible upset of the Chiefs, the Tennessee Titans shocking the Seattle Seahawks on the road and the Las Vegas Raiders securing a 2-0 start.

    Week 1 Sunday Night Freestyle: Should Browns, Bills, Packers calm down or freak out?

The Cleveland Browns, after leading the Kansas City Chiefs for most of the game, succumbed to Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City D once again.

    Charles Robinson is joined by Frank Schwab to recap all fourteen of Sunday's games including the aforementioned losses by Cleveland, Green Bay and Buffalo, the beat-downs all four NFC West teams delivered, a surprising win out of Houston and more.

    2021 season preview: Ravens a low-key mess, Packers have the eye of the tiger

    2021 season preview: Ravens a low-key mess, Packers have the eye of the tiger

    The 2021 season kicks off in less than 24 hours, so it's time for our yearly season preview. Charles Robinson is joined by Yahoo's lead fantasy analyst, Liz Loza to kick the tires on all eight divisions, pick some winners, make some prognostications and ultimately predict the winner of Super Bowl LVI in Los Angeles next winter.

    In the early part of the episode, Charles & Liz chat about the end of another season of Hard Knocks and the saccharine view the show depicted of Jerry Jones and the Dallas Cowboys. Next, the signing of Le'Veon Bell prompts a discussion about the Baltimore Ravens, who seem to be deep in the midst of a season-from-hell and they haven't even played their first game.

    Later, they take a tour around the entire league to predict the division winners in the AFC (20:35) and NFC (38:25), before ultimately picking their Super Bowl winners and the coaches they think are on the hot seat (62:20).

    Urban Meyer, Bill Belichick & why NFL coaches have no choice but to lie about cutting players due to vaccine status

    Urban Meyer, Bill Belichick & why NFL coaches have no choice but to lie about cutting players due to vaccine status

    Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Urban Meyer did an amazing thing Tuesday. Something he almost never does. He told the truth. Meyer revealed that cutting players due to their vaccination status against COVID-19 was, "certainly in consideration."

    Meanwhile, all the way up the eastern seaboard, Cam Newton was released from New England the same day. One can't help but wonder if his vaccination status played into the team's decision to part ways, especially after COVID protocols kept him away from his squad for five days last week.

    Charles Robinson is joined by Yahoo's Dan Wetzel to talk about the NFL's tenuous situation as teams finalized their 53-man rosters this week. Are coaches taking vaccine status into consideration? Absolutely. Are they being forced to lie about it? You bet.

    Charles & Dan also discuss the New Orleans Saints being forced away from their home state for the month of September due to Hurricane Ida, the latest on potential Deshaun Watson trade suitors, the Bishop Sycamore debacle and more.

    Why the Patriots' COVID snafu could cost Cam Newton his job

    Why the Patriots' COVID snafu could cost Cam Newton his job

    After a "misunderstanding" led New England Patriots QB Cam Newton out of the league's structured COVID testing protocols, the former league MVP has been sidelined all week, opening the door for rookie Mac Jones to get first team reps at a pivotal week in training camp. Meanwhile in Dallas, owner Jerry Jones continues to be a vocal proponent of vaccines and even joked on Tuesday night's Hard Knocks, "I've had more shots than a cocker spaniel."


    Charles Robinson is joined by Yahoo columnist Shalise Manza Young to talk about the state of the league's COVID efforts from a player perspective & a business perspective, especially as it relates to the New England Patriots & Cam Newton. They also react to Tuesday morning's trade of former first-rounder Sony Michel to the Los Angeles Rams.


    Later in the podcast, Charles & Shalise have a discussion about the importance of language when discussing player movement, hold-outs and contracts; why the word, "earned" means so much and is rarely considered in the media.


    They close out the episode checking in on the rocky August for the Jacksonville Jaguars, their underwhelming offensive effort in two preseason games, the season-ending injury to Travis Etienne and why it took so long for coach Urban Meyer to finally name first overall pick Trevor Lawrence the starting QB.

You POD to Win the Game!!~

My NFL weekend was never complete until hearing “Yes sir, yes, sir…” and your excellent podcast. I feel so happy when I hear the terrific new opening, and TP’s voice again. And the new version of the the show is just as wonderful. Terrific name for the show, and the guests, always fun and enlightening. He is smiling down on y’all!

Carrying the torch forward!

It’s a beyond-heavy lift by Charles Robison to carry this pod further. He’s definitely adjusting his offense and getting efficient! Perhaps his biggest challenge is bringing aboard teammates & free agents capable of filling Terez’s impossibly-sized cleat to bring the balance the show has enjoyed. Metaphors aside, good job so far CR! I was a huge Terez fan from his early KC Star days. This was my favorite NFL podcast and in 2020 helped lift spirits through the pandemic. Terez’s loss was totally crushing. I can only imagine how it impacted those closest to him. The outpouring from the NFL players and front office brass exemplifies fan sentiments.
