University of Michigan head coach Brady Hoke joins “The Rich Eisen Podcast” in studio to discuss the upcoming college football season, how former Wolverines quarterback Denard Robinson will fare with the Jacksonville Jaguars and much, much more.

Our good friend Jeff Schaffer, an Ann Arbor, Mich. native, stops by toward the end of the Hoke conversation and hangs out for Rich’s chat with Detroit Lions legend Barry Sanders. The Pro Football Hall of Fame running back is one of the latest former NFL players to be named to the Heads Up Football advisory committee in an effort to teach parents and coaches safer practices and techniques in youth football.

The podcast rounds out with Schaffer and the podcast crew chatting about the latest news from around the league, and getting the latest details on Schaffer’s upcoming projects, including the fifth season of… Read

Rich Eisen Podcast: Wes Welker and Jeff Schaffer

We’ve passed the quarter post point of the NFL regular season and in this Year of the Exploding Offense look who’s on top of the receiving world: Wes Welker, who’s on pace to smash Marvin Harrison’s single-season record for receptions and Jerry Rice’s single-season record for receiving yards. And with the Patriots fresh off a big win in Oakland and getting set to host the hated New York Jets – the team that ended its 2010 season if your memory needs refreshing — who better to have on the podcast than Wes Welker? So, we fire up Patriots cam for him. And, yes, I do ask him if he has a message for Rex Ryan.
My other guest is a returning guest: Jeff Schaffer, the co-executive producer and co-writer of “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” Jeff was last on the show in July when we dedicated an entire podcast to “Curb.” This time, Schaffer appears to promote a show of his very own creation: the fantasy-football inspired comedy “The League,” which premieres this Thursday night for a third season on FX. Lots to talk about with Jeff, including his own fantasy leagues and how he incorporates them into the show. Which NFL stars are set to make cameos on his show this year? And then there’s this: How can he can create/write/direct a show about a 2011 fantasy football league when he conceives and shoots most of the scripts during the summer?
Of course, I can’t let Schaffer leave the studio without asking him the origin of the newest classic “Curb” storylines from this past season (Pig Parker, Sh*t Bow, Bill Buckner, Palestinian Chicken Restaurant to name a few) and how he and his writing partners come up with this stuff with Larry David. Then, I press him on the most important issue of all: Will there be a ninth season of “Curb”? His answer… breaks entertainment news, which, as you know, I love to do on the podcast.
Keep an eye peeled for another show this Thursday with NFL Network insider Michael Lombardi, former boxing champ Sugar Ray Leonard and a special surprise guest who, after having an unfortunate career-altering incident in the TV booth, is starting his comeback on the podcast. Stay tuned.
