Rich Eisen Podcast: Best of 2011 Season

With the 2011 season and Super Bowl XLVI in our rear-view mirror and the 2012 NFL Scouting Combine on the horizon, we thought we’d take a look back at some of our favorite moments and guests from the past year of the podcast. Enjoy this ‘best of’ edition and we’ll be back next week with all new show.


Rich Eisen Podcast: Wes Welker and Jeff Schaffer

We’ve passed the quarter post point of the NFL regular season and in this Year of the Exploding Offense look who’s on top of the receiving world: Wes Welker, who’s on pace to smash Marvin Harrison’s single-season record for receptions and Jerry Rice’s single-season record for receiving yards. And with the Patriots fresh off a big win in Oakland and getting set to host the hated New York Jets – the team that ended its 2010 season if your memory needs refreshing — who better to have on the podcast than Wes Welker? So, we fire up Patriots cam for him. And, yes, I do ask him if he has a message for Rex Ryan.
My other guest is a returning guest: Jeff Schaffer, the co-executive producer and co-writer of “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” Jeff was last on the show in July when we dedicated an entire podcast to “Curb.” This time, Schaffer appears to promote a show of his very own creation: the fantasy-football inspired comedy “The League,” which premieres this Thursday night for a third season on FX. Lots to talk about with Jeff, including his own fantasy leagues and how he incorporates them into the show. Which NFL stars are set to make cameos on his show this year? And then there’s this: How can he can create/write/direct a show about a 2011 fantasy football league when he conceives and shoots most of the scripts during the summer?
Of course, I can’t let Schaffer leave the studio without asking him the origin of the newest classic “Curb” storylines from this past season (Pig Parker, Sh*t Bow, Bill Buckner, Palestinian Chicken Restaurant to name a few) and how he and his writing partners come up with this stuff with Larry David. Then, I press him on the most important issue of all: Will there be a ninth season of “Curb”? His answer… breaks entertainment news, which, as you know, I love to do on the podcast.
Keep an eye peeled for another show this Thursday with NFL Network insider Michael Lombardi, former boxing champ Sugar Ray Leonard and a special surprise guest who, after having an unfortunate career-altering incident in the TV booth, is starting his comeback on the podcast. Stay tuned.


Pt. 2 Rich Eisen Podcast: Terrell Suggs, Troy Aikman, Nick Bakay, Kara Henderson, Jeffrey Ross

Guests include Ravens LB Terrell Suggs who shares his candid opinions of the Steelers and Patriots QB Tom Brady (guess he’s not a fan of the Uggs commercial). Also NFL on Fox lead analyst and three-time Super Bowl winning QB Troy Aikman phones in to discuss Big D’s debacle in the Big Apple Sunday night as well as his thoughts on the Peyton Manning saga in Indianapolis. Back on the program fresh of the Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen is the Roast Master General himself Mr. Jeffrey Ross who shares some hilarious stories that took place at last Saturday’s Roast that included “Iron” Mike Tyson himself…The Roast will be airing Monday Sept 19th on Comedy Central. The show wouldn’t be complete without the darling of the podcast as Kara Henderson is back on and she is joined by one of the biggest Buffalo Bills fans on the planet in comedian Nick Bakay who is on a football high after the Bills stomped the Chiefs in Arrowhead. We had so much fun with this podcast we ran long so we decided to break it up into a two-parter. So be sure to download both parts 1 & 2 as we tie up some loose ends from the Curb Your Enthusiasm podcast from July. As always enjoy and tune into the TV version that airs Thursday at 4:30pm ET.
