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.
