With the 2011 season and Super Bowl XLVI in our rear-view mirror and the 2012 NFL Scouting Combine on the horizon, we thought we’d take a look back at some of our favorite moments and guests from the past year of the podcast. Enjoy this ‘best of’ edition and we’ll be back next week with all new show.
Guests include actor Adam Sandler in-studio and legend of the booth Jim Brockmire is back counting down the top plays of October.
We NFL fans loved him as the liquid-loving linebacker Bobby Boucher in “The Waterboy” and the man remade “The Longest Yard” for crying out loud. He’s a big-time Jets fan and may be one of the funniest and coolest dudes walking the planet. He’s Adam Sandler and he kindly paid the podcast an in-studio visit prior to the release of his latest movie “Jack and Jill,” in which he plays both a brother and his sister. Yes, a man AND a woman.
Indeed, he’s come a long way from The Mean Machine.
In one of the more relaxed, funny and chill conversations we’ve ever had in the year-plus history of this show, Sandler talks about how far he thinks his Jets are going, his belief in Mark Sanchez and his run-in with Tom Brady, who thought Sandler was a Patriot fan because of his New England roots. Before getting to his movie, Sandler drops some news about his next still-untitled film coming out next summer: Jets coach Rex Ryan is in it. And he plays a Boston lawyer who, yes, likes the Patriots. Give a listen. And also please go see “Jack and Jill,” which premieres next Friday on November 11th.
And then we throw open the studio doors for the return of the Legend of the Booth himself – Jim Brockmire. Again, if you don’t know the story of Jim, please check on the short documentary that “Funny Or Die” put together about his stellar decades-long Hall of Fame career that came to a screeching halt with an ill-advised, cheating wife-related meltdown on the air. Last month, Jim chose my podcast as the place from which to kick-start his career comeback and the result was awe-inspiring. He nailed the narration of the Plays of the Month of September so it was a no-brainer to have him back on to deliver the Plays of the Month of October for this show and for NFL.com. Please give him all the encouragement he needs to keep on going and use the momentum to get himself back in the game.
For those of you searching for hard-core football talk, please check out the podcast earlier in the week with NBC Sports/Sports Illustrated’s Peter King and NFL Network/Fox Sports’ information man Jay Glazer. Lots of great nuggets and deep conversation in there and also, as in this podcast, some laughs. Next week, NBC’s Bob Costas will join the show with, as usual, some other surprises in store. Thanks for downloading. Read
Guests include Sports Illustrated senior writer Peter King and FOX Sports insider and NFL Network contributor Jay Glazer.
After another spectacular week in the National Football League, Rich decided to dial up two of the best information men in the business. First up from NFL headquarters in New York is King, who gives his take on the Chargers’ late-game debacle in Kansas City on “Monday Night Football”, and how Chiefs coach Todd Haley has his team rolling and in great position at the halfway point of the season after an 0-3 start. The conversation then shifts around the league as Rich and King touch on some of the hotter topics in the NFL from recent weeks, including the quick rise and fall of Tim Tebow in Denver.
And speaking of Tebow, Jay Glazer has an interesting take on John Fox’s Mile-High quarterback dilemma, and how his hand might have been somewhat forced into playing the former Heisman Trophy winner. After Tebow’s more-than-lackluster performance Sunday against the Lions, Rich asks Glazer who he can expect to be calling the plays in the huddle when the Jets take on the Broncos on NFL Network’s “Thursday Night Football” matchup in Week 10? Glazer’s answer might surprise some of you.
It’s an information-packed podcast with two of the very best in the business, so enjoy and thanks for downloading. Be sure to check back Thursday as Rich has a star-studded podcast scheduled as “The Sandman” himself, Adam Sandler, joins Rich in-studio to talk Jets, Tom Brady, and his new comedy “Jack and Jill” that hits theatres Nov. 11. Also making his triumphant return to recap the top NFL plays for the month of October is the legend of the booth, Jim Brockmire. So tune into NFL Network at 4:30 p.m. ET on Thursday. Read
