Rich Eisen is joined by St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher, who also serves as co-chair of the NFL’s Competition Committee. Eisen and Fisher have an engaging chat about what prospective rule changes are in the mix for 2014 and if injury-ridden and embattled quarterback Sam Bradford is the answer for the franchise moving forward.
Next, former University of Central Florida quarterback and top draft prospect Blake Bortles joins Eisen from the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine to discuss his future in the National Football League. The 2013 AAC Player of the Year and Fiesta Bowl champion has seen his draft stock rise in recent weeks, and Bortles was the only one of the top three-rated quarterbacks (Johnny Manziel and Teddy Bridgewater) to throw for scouts in Indianapolis.
Atlanta Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff then sits down with Eisen to talk about the combine from the front-office point of view and how players can rise and fall on a team’s draft board simply by how they run the 40-yard dash. Dimitroff also discusses how his team went from 13-3 and the brink of the Super Bowl in 2012 to 4-12 and last place in the NFC South in 2013.
The podcast rounds out with our show’s resident movie critic Jim Mora Sr., who is back to select who he thinks will take home the gold statues in a variety of categories at Sunday night’s 86th annual Academy Awards. The winningest coach in New Orleans Saints history practically grew up on a movie lot as a kid in Los Angeles and sees just about every new flick that comes out, so who better to evaluate Hollywood’s biggest stars on their biggest night? The former Colts coach also shares a great story from his days in Indianapolis, when the team had the No.1 overall pick and was choosing between Peyton Manning and Ryan Leaf.
