Guests include Dan Patrick, who joins Rich from the studios of his immensely popular and successful radio and TV show, appropriately titled “The DP Show”. It’s always a fun time when these two get together as stories of the past are shared as well as DP’s thoughts on the closing weeks of what has been another incredible NFL season.

Next up from NFL Fantasy Live is Dave Dameshek, who makes his inaugural appearance on the podcast. No stranger to medium himself, Shek also plays host on his own ‘cast called “The Dave Dameshek Football Program”. His Shame Report and podcast can also be found on NFL.com.

We close this holiday week podcast with two of the best inside men in the NFL, Michael Lombardi and Jason LaCanfora sit down with Rich as he hits them all of the burning questions after a crazy week 15 that has left more questions than answers in two divisions. Who will emerge in the AFC West? Can The Eagles go from down and out to the 4th seed and winning the NFC East? It’s all hit on with Rich, Jason and the Godfather himself, Michael Lombardi.

We hope you enjoy this holiday edition of the podcast, thank for listening. Next week Little NFL Guru’s return, plus the hilarious Jeff Schaeffer and Alec Berg are back in-studio. Read

Rich Eisen Podcast: Matt Leinart, Nick Bakay, Stephen J. Dubner and Brian Billick

As Week 12 approaches, the storyline has shifted dramatically in the NFL with two playoff-contending teams potentially losing their signal callers for weeks, if not the remainder of the regular season. Jay Cutler’s thumb injury puts the ball in the hands of backup Caleb Hanie for Chicago. Meanwhile, the AFC South-leading Texans saw their quarterback, Matt Schaub, go down with a foot injury. Enter Matt Leinart: The former Heisman Trophy winner will get his first career start with the Texans on Sunday. Leinart sat down with Rich to chat about the big game, turning down his former USC coach’s offer to reunite in Seattle, and just exactly what went wrong in Arizona.

Speaking of going wrong, Rich welcomes in studio his good friend Nick Bakay, whose Bills have been in a downward spiral since his last visit just a few weeks ago. The guys try to diagnose the problems and where things went bad for Ryan Fitzpatrick and Co. They also hit on some of the hot topics, including Tim Tebow’s Mile High comeback last Thursday against the Jets on NFL Network, and what it all means moving forward for Denver.

After Bakay, Rich shifts gears and sits down with author Stephen J. Dubner. If Dubner’s name sounds familiar, it should, he co-wrote the New York Times bestseller “Freakonomics”, which has sold more than four million copies and has also been turned into a successful documentary film. After penning a follow-up book titled “SuperFreakonomics”, Dubner has decided to take his unique approach of looking at issues in society, and turn it to the gridiron in a series for NFL.com and NFL Network called “Football Freakonomics”. Rich and Stephen chat about some of the interesting ways that common practices and theories such as “Icing the Kicker” and “Momentum” can be looked at through data and either proven, or debunked.

The show rounds out with our resident coach, as Brian Billick and Rich chat on a variety of topics from around the league. Enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday weekend and thanks for downloading. Read


Rich Eisen Podcast: Jerome Bettis, Maurice Jones-Drew, Joe Buck and Kara Henderson

This week’s guests include the NFL’s fifth all-time leading rusher, Jerome Bettis, who stops by to discuss the latest NFL news, including his thoughts on the Steelers’ chances this season and the surprising city in which he believes former coach Bill Cowher might land.

Next on the podcast is Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew, who attempts to atone for his Monday night faux-pas from a few weeks back, when he fumbled on the goal line against the Baltimore Ravens. MJD’s fumble cost REP fans dearly, as it prevented the debut of his highly anticipated end-zone celebration dubbed “The Podcast.” To say Pocket Hercules felt bad would be an understatement as he doubled down and promised the celebration would happen in Week 13 when the Jaguars host the Chargers on “Monday Night Football.”

After that, Rich fires up Rams Cam for St. Louis native and “NFL on FOX” lead play-by-play announcer Joe Buck. Rich and Joe chat about the happenings around the league from Week 11, as well as Buck’s homage to his legendary broadcasting father after David Freese’s home run in Game 6 of the World Series. The podcast rounds out with Kara Henderson and “The Worm,” who touch on some hot NFL topics and more.

Enjoy, and happy downloading. Read
