Rich Eisen phones in to his own podcast to chat with producers Chris Law and Chris Brockman about the Giants’ absolute beat down of the Panthers on NFL Network’s “Thursday Night Football” and preview the full slate of games scheduled for Week 3 of the NFL Season. The guys also discuss Rich accepting actor Joel Mchale’s on-air challenge for “TNF.” The gauntlet was laid down, via Twitter, for Rich to work the word ‘chance’ into the postgame show in honor of Mchale’s co-star, actress Gillian Jacobs, and her upcoming appearance on the podcast next week.

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
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.

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.

Once again, we do our best to give you the best mix of the NFL and pop culture. With the second overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft and one of the writers of the hit movie “Ted” on the same show, I daresay we’ve achieved that goal.
First up, the savior-in-waiting of the Washington Redskins, RG3 phones in to the show to give us an update on his contract status, his readiness to take the reins, his comfort in the Mike Shanahan offense, his preparation for the intense pressure on the horizon and, perhaps most importantly, how in the world did he wind up on the same “30 Rock” set as Kim Kardashian the night of the NFL draft and was he aware she was looking his way?
Lastly, Alec Sulkin joins us in studio. The long-time “Family Guy” writer, Twitter star and co-author of the bawdy hit film “Ted” also happens to be a diehard Patriots fan. I’m sure all of you who saw “Ted” would be shocked to know Sulkin is from Boston and has lived and died with the Pats his whole life. We hit on several backstories concerning “Ted” and had an overall fun conversation that fans of “Family Guy” and followers of Sulkin’s popular Twitter account — @thesulk — will truly enjoy. If you’ve not been exposed to his world and humor, you’re in for a ride.

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
Guests include comedian Frank Caliendo and “Step in Rich’s Shoes” contest winner Chris Barba. First up is the hilarious comedian and impressionist Frank Caliendo, who cracks up the crew with impressions ranging from Charles Barkley and Robin Williams, to Jim Rome and of course coach John Madden. We decide to have a little fun with Caliendo’s John Madden impersonation by phoning up Steve Mariucci and seeing how long we can make him think he’s talking to the real John Madden. It’s a must listen sequence.
Up next is the winner of our “Step In Rich’s Shoes” contest Chris Barba, who won our two month long challenge to get the most new subscribers to the sign up for the podcast. Barba is a big time Dallas Cowboys fan who currently attends college in Guadalajara, Mexico and wants to become a sports broadcaster.
Enjoy, and as always, thanks for listening.
It’s an all new episode of The Rich Eisen Podcast, coming to you from NFL headquarters in New York, featuring commissioner Roger Goodell and “Saturday Night Live” lead writer Seth Meyers.
Commissioner Goodell sits down with Rich to discuss some of the more important topics around the league just prior to the 2012 NFL Draft, Including his thoughts on the recent news surrounding Saints general manager Mickey Loomis and a federal investigation into alleged wire tapping. The commish also shares his thoughts on Saints’ players responsibility in the “bounty” scandal that rocked the Bayou. It’s not all serious, though, as Rich and the commisioner talk about Thursday’s draft and the dream that will be fulfilled for 26 athletes, who will be in attendance at Radio City Music Hall to hear the commissioner call their names.
Up next is big-time Steelers fan and hilarious lead writer of SNL, Seth Meyers, who took the short trek down from his 30 Rock office to sit down with Rich and chat about some of the NFL veterans who have appeared on SNL, including Tom Brady and Peyton Manning. Seth and the cast are currently gearing up for Super Bowl winning quarterback Eli Manning, who is scheduled to host the show May 5th. Even though his show is on break this week, there is no rest for the weary, as Meyers is headed on the road for a few comedy tour stops, including a Thursday night performance in Austin, Texas.
