The 2014 NFL season kicks off with a rematch of one of the more infamous games in NFL history. Aaron Rodgers and the Packers look to avenge their loss in the “Fail Mary” game when they head to the Pacific Northwest to take on Russell Wilson and the defending Super Bowl champion Seahawks.  What a way to kick off the 2014 season, right? And that’s only a small sample of what the folks in the NFL scheduling department have served up for the 2014 schedule, which now includes 16 Thursday Night Football games that will air on both CBS and NFL Network.  Rich Eisen, along with producers Chris Law and Chris Brockman, take a full look at the entire 2014 schedule and talk about some of the new broadcast rules, including the NFL’s ability to flex schedule Sunday Night Football games as early as week 5 and what the newly announced “cross-flexing” means for viewers on Sundays.

Broncos EVP of football operations John Elway then joins Rich to break down Denver’s 2014 schedule.  The slate welcomes Andrew Luck and the Colts to Mile High for the Broncos’ season opener, plus a Super Bowl XLVIII rematch with Seattle in Week 3. Eisen then says “hello friend” to Jim Nantz, who takes over the play-by-play commentary on the new-look “Thursday Night Football” package on which NFL Network and CBS have partnered. Eisen and Nantz examine the entire TNF schedule, which includes an unprecedented 14 divisional… Read

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.

Rich Eisen Podcast: Warren Moon and Bryan Anger

Rich Eisen Podcast: Warren Moon and Bryan Anger

Here on the podcast, we like to bring together and matchup guests from all walks of life, be it in the entertainment world or the NFL. On this episode we have two players on either end of the football spectrum: Canadian and Pro Football Hall of Famer Warren Moon and rookie Jaguars punter Bryan Anger. The former, you should recognize. Moon played 23 seasons of professional football with four different NFL teams (most notably the Houston Oilers) and amassed nearly 50,000 NFL passing yards and reached nine Pro Bowls. Prior to, he played six years up north with Edmonton in the CFL. He stops by to talk about his illustrious Hall of Fame class in 2006, Cam Newton 2012 potential, the Seahawks, a new type of helmet he’s a partner in and much more. Anger, if you remember, was the highest drafted punter since 1995 and caused Rich to have a conniption at this year’s Draft. The Cal graduate couldn’t believe the response to his selection and explains how he became a foot-to-ball specialist, what it’s like getting ready for his rookie training camp and more.

As always, thanks for listening and don’t forget to vote in our new poll on who looks more like a Hasselbeck brother: podcast TV producer Chris Brockman or actual Hasselbeck brother, Nathanael.

See you next week! Read


Rich Eisen Podcast: Matt Hasselbeck

(Rich and the Hasselbeck brothers.)

A week of all football guests kicks off with someone long overdue for an in-studio visit as Titans quarterback and devilishly handsome New England native Matthew Hasselbeck took time out of his L.A. workout schedule to stop by the program for a chat. With a fresh hair cut (our efforts for an all-bald cast nearly complete) and donning a Celtics shmedium T-shirt, Hasselbeck shared his thoughts on everything from his decision to re-sign with the Titans last summer to how close he came to becoming a UCLA Bruin back in the day. You’ll never guess what Boston College head coach Tom Coughlin said to him at the time that made him change his mind. Later in the conversation, the youngest Hasselbeck brother, Nathaniel, joins in to share some stories from Matt’s days with the Packers and growing up in an NFL household. There’s one involving a snowy playoff week in Green Bay you won’t want to miss.

As always, stay tuned for the television program featuring Hasselbeck, Hall of Famer Warren Moon and rookie Jaguars punter Bryan Anger on Thursday at 1:30pm ET only on NFL Network.

Thanks for listening, and enjoy! Read
