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.

Rich Eisen Podcast: John Elway, John Slattery, Rainn Wilson, Eric Stonestreet, Adrian Peterson and Jim Brockmire
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
