The 2014 NFL season kicks off with a rematch of one of the more infamous games in NFL history. Aaron Rodgers and the Packers look to avenge their loss in the “Fail Mary” game when they head to the Pacific Northwest to take on Russell Wilson and the defending Super Bowl champion Seahawks.  What a way to kick off the 2014 season, right? And that’s only a small sample of what the folks in the NFL scheduling department have served up for the 2014 schedule, which now includes 16 Thursday Night Football games that will air on both CBS and NFL Network.  Rich Eisen, along with producers Chris Law and Chris Brockman, take a full look at the entire 2014 schedule and talk about some of the new broadcast rules, including the NFL’s ability to flex schedule Sunday Night Football games as early as week 5 and what the newly announced “cross-flexing” means for viewers on Sundays.

Broncos EVP of football operations John Elway then joins Rich to break down Denver’s 2014 schedule.  The slate welcomes Andrew Luck and the Colts to Mile High for the Broncos’ season opener, plus a Super Bowl XLVIII rematch with Seattle in Week 3. Eisen then says “hello friend” to Jim Nantz, who takes over the play-by-play commentary on the new-look “Thursday Night Football” package on which NFL Network and CBS have partnered.

Rich Eisen Podcast: Jim Nantz and Dennis Miller

First, Nantz joins Rich from NFL Headquarters in New York fresh off his call of the Giants’ tight victory over the Bills and got a few things off his chest, to say the least. Jim is like the anti-Gus Johnson this year, a virtual magnet for NFL blowouts up until last week’s Bills-Giants squeaker. He’s itching for some close game action, and perhaps this week’s Chargers-Jets game will provide it. Nantz previews the game he’s calling this week and handicaps the rest of the AFC field that CBS broadcasts coast-to-coast each and every week.

The podcast wraps up with the whirling dervish, Megamind of pop-culture maestro himself, Dennis Miller. It’s his third podcast appearance and, once again, this man shows off his love of the sport. I mean, he flat out loves talking ball. His take on the Coaches Gone Wild incident, the new defensive rule changes, the Cowboys’ late-game play-calling in New England, as well as his remembrances of Al Davis from his days calling Monday Night Football games, are all not to be missed. We already cannot wait to have him back on the show. Enjoy. Read
