Guests include Academy Award winning actor and die-hard Patriots fan Matt Damon, who joins Rich from NFL headquarters in New York. A New England native, Damon chats with Rich about the Patriots chances at a title this season, where he was when he first met Tom Brady, and much, much more… Including his new movie “We Bought A Zoo”, directed by the super talented Cameron Crowethat hits theatres Friday, December 23rd.
Up next is the voice of “Sunday Night Football” on NBC, Al Michaels, who is fresh off fantastic finish in Dallas that saw Tony Romo and the Cowboys let another fourth quarter lead slip away. As always it’s an informative chat when Al is in-studio and we look forward to him and Cris Collinsworth on the call for Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis.
Our second big time actor of the show phones in fresh off of hosting the Country Music Television awards, when big time Colts fan, Rob Lowe dials up the program. Like millions of Americans, Lowe was suffering from the Fantasy Football blues, after a devastating loss in week 14, at the hands of his very own son no less. But it certainly isn’t bad being Rob Lowe these days, as the bestselling author of “Stories I Only Tell My Friends” recently announced he’ll be penning a follow up book titled “Love Life” and also has a new film currently in theatres called “I Melt With You” co-starring Jeremy Piven. Like we said, it certainly isn’t bad being Rob Lowe.
This week’s show rounds out with the founder of Pro Football Talk, Mike Florio, who shares his take on the James Harrison hit that nearly knocked out Colt McCoy, and the leagues handling with a one-game suspension. Florio also shares his thoughts on some of the recent coaching vacancies and where he thinks some of the more high profiled “retired” coaches may land in the offseason.
It’s a fun, star studded podcast to get you ready for not one, but two games on NFL Network this week. Thanks for downloading
