Guests for Part 1 include NBA on TNT basketball analyst Charles Barkley, who discusses the success that fellow former Auburn Tiger Cam Newton is having two weeks into his rookie campaign as quarterback of the Carolina Panthers.Barkley also lays down the gauntlet as he extends a physical challenge to one of Rich’s co-analysts on NFL GameDay Morning. Its hilarious stuff, and when the challenge goes down we’ll be sure to have the cameras rolling. Next up, Yahoo! Sports NFL writer Michael Silver phones in and is joined by podcast regular Kara Henderson. The early season struggles of the Kansas City Chiefs and Todd Haley’s job security all come up as former Bronco’s head coach and current Rams offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels’ name has recently been discussed as a possible successor in KC… and we are only in week 2. The show doesn’t end there, so be sure to download Part 2, which features the MVP of Super Bowl XLV, as Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers calls in and the podcast rounds out with Emmy nominated actor and huge Baltimore Ravens fan Josh Charles, who also just so happens to be the voice of the NFL Films produced series A Football Life that airs on NFL Network. As always enjoy, and thanks for listening.
Guests for part 2 include the MVP of Super Bowl XLV, as Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers phones in to talk with Rich about the big Week 3 matchup against his NFC North divisional rival, the Chicago Bears. Rodgers also gives his thoughts on Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo’s gritty Week 2 performance in San Fran as he played with cracked ribs and a punctured lung.
Up after Rodgers is the Emmy-nominated actor from the CBS drama The Good Wife as Josh Charles comes in-studio to sit down with Rich and chat about his beloved Baltimore Ravens and his disdain for the organization that packed up a Mayflower truck in the middle of the night and skipped town. If Charles’ voice sounds familiar to NFL fans, there’s good reason, he is also the voice of the spectacularly produced series by NFL Films called A Football Life. Part 2 of A Football Life: Bill Belichick airs this Thursday at 10p.m. ET on NFL Network, and the series continues throughout the season highlighting some of the legends of the game.
And finally, the podcast ends with the crew doing some house cleaning and Rich getting called out by the fellas for what we’ll call ‘a breach of etiquette’.
