The 2013 season is finally upon us as Thursday night kickoff in Denver is just days away. Rich and the podcast crew go through the entire Week 1 schedule and make their picks for “The Rich Eisen Podcast” Weekly Pick ‘Em Challenge for the opening weekend. If you haven’t done so already, be sure to sign up today and join in on the fun with the Rich Eisen Podcast League.
Our first guest on the podcast is from an interview Rich taped earlier this summer when he traveled to Cleveland, Ohio and the set of the film “Draft Day” to sit down with Academy Award winning director and actor Kevin Costner. Costner stars as the Browns general manager in the Ivan Reitman directed film set to hit theatres in 2014. It’s a fascinating listen to hear Costner, the iconic sports movie actor of our generation, discuss which sports movies he’s enjoyed most and why it took this long for him to finally take on a football based film.
Rich continues podcasting form the road as he next heads to the set of Carrie Underwood’s Sunday Night Football music video shoot. The multi-platinum and Grammy award winning singer, who took over for Faith Hill as the voice of Sunday Night Football, sits down with Rich on the sound-stage in Los Angeles where she was shooting the new open for NBC’s Sunday Night Football. Be sure to catch Carrie’s new rendition when it premieres this Sunday as the Cowboys take on the Giants at 8:30 pm ET on NBC.
Rich then welcomes back in studio podcast favorites Jeff and Jackie Schaffer to chat about the kickoff of the 2013 NFL season, plus the season 5 kickoff of their hit show “The League,” which makes the move to Wednesdays at 10:30 pm ET on… Read

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.

After a week-long hiatus Rich and the crew are back recapping all that happened in Week 15 and across the National Football League landscape while they were gone, including the down-to-the-wire playoff races that are happening in both the AFC and NFC.
Rich then dials up WFAN sports radio host Joe Beningo for the pulse on the tri-state mood following the Mark Sanchez led disaster that struck on “Monday Night Football” for the Jets. Beningo isn’t shy with his thoughts on Sanchez or apologetic on how Jets management has handled the entire 2012 season. This is one New Yorker’s perspective you won’t want to miss.
Things then settle down a bit when Rich, Law and Brockman welcome back in podcast favorites Jeff and Jackie Schaffer for a chat about their beloved Seahawks and much more.
