Rich Eisen Podcast: LaDainian Tomlinson and Gabe Feldman

L.T. joins “The Rich Eisen Podcast”

One of the NFL’s all-time great running backs and the only sports law professor who can make sport argument and legalese a listenable venture join me on this podcast.

Mere weeks after paying an in-studio visit during his decision-making process, LaDainian Tomlinson returns to the podcast fresh off his decision to retire from his legendary stint in the NFL. Among the topics: Why did he choose to hang them up? What about his statement that that he’d prefer a ringless Hall of Fame career over a Super Bowl winning, Hall of Fame-less career, and the criticism he received for it?  What’s the next step for the man who stepped into an NFL end zone an incredible 162 times? How does he think the Sanchez/Tebow quarterback battle will unfold in his old Jets stomping grounds this year?  All revealed.

Please listen for that and also a full, in-depth analysis of what’s going on in – yet another – legal battle between the NFL and the NFL Players Association. Tulane University School of Sports Law professor Gabe Feldman sifts you through the legal briefs, arguments and postures that currently form the thorny, controversial and endless Saints “bounty” issue. If you’re curious about how this came about, what it’s all about and how it may all play out, then this is for you. I figured it was time to address this issue, no matter how fatigued all of you – myself included – may still be from last year’s CBA awfulness.

It’s a busy podcast week, folks. Stay tuned for a chat with Redskins savior-in-chief Robert Griffin III and Jaguars punter Bryan Anger (punters are people too!)

As always, enjoy the listen. Read

Rich Eisen Podcast: Drew Brees, Willie McGinest, Jim Mora and Dennis Miller

Drew Brees, the first quarterback in the history of this great game to throw for over 3,000 yards in the first nine games of a season, is our first guest on the podcast this week. The perennial Pro Bowl pick joins us fresh off a huge divisional victory over the Buccaneers and mere days before another huge divisional game against the Falcons in Atlanta. The stakes for that game are simple: The winner will lead of the NFC South through 10 weeks. We hit Brees on every one of these subjects, including why he believes the Saints muddled through October with maddeningly inconsistency and if coach Sean Payton being on crutches rather than on the sideline has been a root cause of that.

Next up, Jim Mora and Willie McGinest come in together for a discussion on numerous NFL topics. Are the Bengals truly for real? Just how far can the 49ers take their surprising 7-1 start? And who better to ask about the Patriots’ defensive issues and if Bill Belichick can fix them on the fly than McGinest? Of course, Mora throws in his two cents … and gives us an update on his movie-loving Dad. You’ll never guess where the other Jim Mora is these days.

With a sixth season of “Thursday Night Football” on NFL Network getting underway (boy, does time fly) we welcome in the senior producer of the pregame and postgame shows, Bardia Shah-Rais. What goes on behind the scenes before a big broadcast? What changes are in store for you, the discerning viewer? Bardia clues us in as we also stroll down memory lane about the last six years of “Thursday Night Football” on NFL Network.

Lastly, Dennis Miller returns to the podcast to lend his thoughts on the results of the Ravens-Steelers slobberknocker and Tim Tebow’s, shall we say, revival. As always, Dennis delivers in the pop-culture staccato style that only he can deliver. Give a listen and enjoy. See you all in San Diego on Thursday night … and next week in the last of Tebow, as Rex Ryan puts Tim in his sights. Read
