Free agency has been underway for the past 48 hours, and already we’ve seen big-name players ink deals with new teams and the dominos beginning to fall for others. Rich Eisen welcomes back to the #REP Super Bowl XXXV-winning coach and friend of the program Brian Billick to talk about how a team approaches the free-agent frenzy period and get some insight into the behind-the-scenes dealings.  Billick and Eisen also discuss which acquisitions could make the biggest impact in 2014 and where are the best landing spots for free agents who have yet to sign.

Next, Charles Davis dials in to discuss the latest news surrounding the 2014 NFL Draft class.  For the past few weeks, we’ve been hearing about the “Big 3” at the quarterback position in Johnny ManzielTeddy Bridgewater and Blake Bortles, but Davis thinks a fourth name is rising on draft boards and could shake things up on draft day.  Eisen and Davis also discuss how some free agency moves, such as the Jacksonville Jaguars trading quarterback Blaine Gabbert to the San Francisco 49ers, will impact the draft.

Actor Aaron Paul dials in for a chat with Rich about his new film “Need For Speed,” rooting for the Broncos at MetLife Stadium during Super Bowl XLVIII and the fantastic ride he’s been on for the past few years portraying Jesse Pinkman in the critically acclaimed series “Breaking Bad.”  The two-time Emmy Award-winning actor is… Read

Before getting to this latest episode, I’d like to take a moment to address all the kind words and congratulations sent in the direction of the podcast for passing the 10 million download mark. Speaking for producers Chris Law and Chris Brockman and everyone associated with the show from its near three-year history, I thank you all from the bottom of my heart. It truly has been a labor of love. Or, as our previous guest Larry David would say, it’s been a prettay, prettay, prettay good run.

And, on that note, I couldn’t think of a better guest to have on to begin the next 10 million downloads than Matt Damon. Other than being an Academy Award winning, Emmy nominated A-list actor, he’s also a fantastic regular guy. And you’ll hear that in the conversation on this show as he bemoans the loss of Wes Welker to the Denver Broncos and re-iterates his trust in Bill Belichick and Tom Brady just like every New England Patriots fan you’ve come across. Damon loves his Pats for sure, and he knows his stuff, too. His reaction to the addition of Tim Tebow and the New York Jets’ famous “Buttfumble” are not to be missed. Also not to be missed: his new movie “Elysium” in a theater near you. Go see it.

The show wraps up with a fun conversation with Brian Billick, the Super Bowl-winning coach of the 2000 Baltimore Ravens and NFL Network analyst. We go soup to nuts with Coach as Read

The day after calling the Jets-Cardinals game in the Meadowlands, coach Brian Billick dials in (with what sounds like a Zach Morris cell phone) to chat with Rich about the benching of Mark Sanchez in New York and what it means for the franchise moving forward.  Coach Billick also hits on a variety of other topics from Week 13, including his thoughts on how Romeo Crennel and the Chiefs handled and played in the wake of the Jovan Belcher murder-suicide tragedy.  Coach and Rich finish up with a chat about the big matchup between the Bengals and Cowboys in Week 14, a game with major AFC and NFC playoff implications that the Super Bowl XXXV-winning coach will call for FOX on Sunday.

Rich Eisen Podcast: Matt Leinart, Nick Bakay, Stephen J. Dubner and Brian Billick

As Week 12 approaches, the storyline has shifted dramatically in the NFL with two playoff-contending teams potentially losing their signal callers for weeks, if not the remainder of the regular season. Jay Cutler’s thumb injury puts the ball in the hands of backup Caleb Hanie for Chicago. Meanwhile, the AFC South-leading Texans saw their quarterback, Matt Schaub, go down with a foot injury. Enter Matt Leinart: The former Heisman Trophy winner will get his first career start with the Texans on Sunday. Leinart sat down with Rich to chat about the big game, turning down his former USC coach’s offer to reunite in Seattle, and just exactly what went wrong in Arizona.

Speaking of going wrong, Rich welcomes in studio his good friend Nick Bakay, whose Bills have been in a downward spiral since his last visit just a few weeks ago. The guys try to diagnose the problems and where things went bad for Ryan Fitzpatrick and Co. They also hit on some of the hot topics, including Tim Tebow’s Mile High comeback last Thursday against the Jets on NFL Network, and what it all means moving forward for Denver.

After Bakay, Rich shifts gears and sits down with author Stephen J. Dubner. If Dubner’s name sounds familiar, it should, he co-wrote the New York Times bestseller “Freakonomics”, which has sold more than four million copies and has also been turned into a successful documentary film. After penning a follow-up book titled “SuperFreakonomics”, Dubner has decided to take his unique approach of looking at issues in society, and turn it to the gridiron in a series for NFL.com and NFL Network called “Football Freakonomics”. Rich and Stephen chat about some of the interesting ways that common practices and theories such as “Icing the Kicker” and “Momentum” can be looked at through data and either proven, or debunked.

The show rounds out with our resident coach, as Brian Billick and Rich chat on a variety of topics from around the league. Enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday weekend and thanks for downloading. Read
