Training camps are already underway for rookies across the NFL this week, with veterans schedule to soon report. So we thought we’d dial up a St Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford, who is the beneficiary of two new rookie weapons at receiver in Tavon Austin and Stedman Bailey. Bradford is entering his fourth season as the quarterback in St. Louis and under new head coach Jeff Fisher in 2012 he led the Rams to the NFC West’s best divisional record. Bradford chats with Rich about building off that divisional record in 2013, how the addition of a franchise left tackle like Jake Long will help him, and what the expectations are as he enters his fourth season.
Up next, supermodel Chrissy Teigen swings by the podcast studio for a hilarious chat with Rich and producers Chris Law and Chris Brockman. If you’re scoring at home, yes, that’s back-to-back weeks on the #REP with a supermodel in-studio(pats self on back.) Teigen is an absolute blast and hits on a wide range of topics from The ESPY’s to her love of Seinfeld, a little NFL and College Football and her fiancé, Grammy award winning musician John Legend.
The podcast finishes up with our good pal, actor Hank Azaria. It’s a fun appearance by Azaria, who usually appears in character as… Read
Over one hour, The Rich Eisen Thanksgiving Special will expand beyond the prism of the NFL as it welcomes in some of Hollywood’s most notable names from both television and movies:
• Actor and Seattle Seahawks fan Rainn Wilson – best known as Dwight Schrute from the TV series The Office
• Actor and New England Patriots fan John Slattery – best known as Roger Sterling from the TV series Mad Men, and currently starring in In Our Nature
• Actor and Kansas City Chiefs fan Eric Stonestreet – best known as Cameron Tucker from the TV series Modern Family

The televised podcast will also feature prominent guests from the NFL:
• Hall-of-Famer quarterback and current Denver Broncos Executive Vice President of Football Operations John Elway
• The NFL’s current leading rusher, Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson Read
Guests include Super Bowl XLV Champion Charles Woodson, podcast aficionado Adam Carolla, legend of the broadcast booth Jim Brockmire & L.A. Times sports columnist Sam Farmer. Read
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
