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.

The executive vice president of football operations for the Denver Broncos, John Elway, dials in to chat with Rich Eisen fresh off his team’s shootout win in Dallas. Elway talks about the near perfect season quarterback Peyton Manning is having, how Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo made the Broncos’ defense look foolish at times, and how important Pro Bowl linebacker Von Miller’s return will be for his team.

Next up, Penn State football coach Bill O’Brien phones in to discuss his Nittany Lions homecoming contest this Saturday with the Michigan Wolverines. The 2012 Coach of the Year has strong ties to the National Football League, spending four years under Bill Belichick as an offensive coach and coordinator.  O’Brien discuses what this time in New England meant for him now as a young head coach, while he tries to rebuild a program and restore the glory in Happy Valley.  The B1G showdown this weekend in State College has special significance for the #REP, with Eisen being a Michigan Alumnus, and podcast producer Chris Law graduating from Penn State.

Here it is: The highly anticipated, buzz-worthy first (and perhaps only)-ever “Rich Eisen Thanksgiving Special” that kicked Lindsay Lohan off the top of Page Six for a day.

The television version of this show airs 10 p.m. ET and 10 p.m. PT Friday on NFL Network, with a breakfast re-airing Saturday at 10 a.m. ET before the college football day gets started. As for the audio, uncut version…

It all kicks off with Broncos Executive Vice President John Elway, the fourth all-time leading passer of the National Football League who brought the third all-time leading passer of the NFL to Denver. And all Peyton Manning has done is ball out. We chat with The Duke before turning matters over to the brilliant John Slattery. Any fan of “Mad Men” knows very well the uptick in pleasure you receive when Slattery’s Roger Sterling walks, talks, drinks, saunters or bursts his way onto a scene. We discuss his process of creating, honing and, yes, evolving the character that’s earned him an Emmy nomination the last four consecutive years. The star of the upcoming film “In Our Nature” also happens to be quite a Patriots fan, with a son he has been trying to wean off of the New York Giants for a long time.

Next up, Rainn Wilson, the man to whom we will always be in debt to for the way he has brought Dunder-Mifflin psychotic Dwight Schrute to life for nine seasons of “The Office.” You’ll be happy to know the Seahawks are so deeply woven into his DNA that you’ll hear him drop the name “Jim Zorn” on this podcast. Wilson owns two fantasy football leagues and frequently tweets his fantasy woes to his 3.5 million followers on Twitter. Eric Stonestreet follows. Despite being the reigning Emmy Award winner for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for his work on “Modern Family,” you should feel for Eric. He’s a die-hard Chiefs fan who also… Read
