What better way to celebrate being one-quarter of the way through the NFL season then with a MEGA-POD edition of The Rich Eisen Podcast? Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll dials in for a discussion with Rich about his squad’s big comeback victory against the Houston Texans, and how he’s getting his team ready for Andrew Luck and the Colts in Week 5. We also get the former USC coach’s thoughts on his former employers firing of Lane Kiffin.

Up next, former Baltimore Orioles great and Hall of Famer, Cal Ripken Jr, dials in to discuss the Ravens’ 2-2 start. The Iron Man and Ravens season ticket holder tells Rich about his relationship with Charm City’s other sports icon, retired linebacker Ray Lewis, who also happens to be Ripken’s neighbor. Ripken also discusses a potential return to Major League Baseball in a managerial role, and the advice LA Dodgers skipper Don Mattingly gave him about the gig.

Emmy award-winning actor and die-hard Kansas City Chiefs fan, Eric Stonestreet, calls in to discuss the Chiefs’ hot 4-0 start under new coach Andy Reid and quarterback Alex Smith.

The podcast finishes off with TIME TV critic, James Poniewozik, dialing in to recap the series finale of “Breaking Bad.” With Chris Brockman still catching up on Season 4, Rich sends him out of the room to discuss with Poniewozik and producer Chris Law in detail, the ending to one of television’s best series of all time.
(Spoiler Alert!!! If you haven’t seen “Breaking Bad” and don’t want to hear how it ends, fast forward from the 1:26:00 mark through 1:57:00 )

Sixteen-season veteran and sure-fire Hall of Fame tight end Tony Gonzalez joins Rich on Falcons Cam just days away from his return to Arrowhead, when his Falcons face off against the Chiefs at 1 p.m. ET Sunday. It marks the first time since leaving Kansas City that the NFL’s all-time record holder for touchdowns, receptions and yards as a tight end will return to face his old team.

Next up, Rich welcomes Seahawks rookie quarterback Russell Wilson, who beat out veteran Matt Flynn for the starting spot in Seattle, defying the many doubters who said a quarterback of his height couldn’t make it in the NFL. Wilson will look to prove doubters wrong again when he leads the Seahawks against the Cardinals on Sunday.

We wrap things up with none other than our front-office man Michael Lombardi, who returns to preview the NFC South and… Read
