Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall dials in to “The Rich Eisen Podcast.” The Bears are off to a 3-0 start, their best since 2010 when they made it to the NFC Championship. Marshall discusses with Rich the key to the Bears early success and how coach Marc Trestman has put his stamp on the team. The outgoing Marshall also openly discusses his struggles with borderline personality disorder, and how he hopes to bridge the gap between the general public and their perception or misconceptions about people who suffer from mental health issues. It’s a fascinating listen from an inspiring young man who seems to have things headed in the proper direction, both on and off the field.
Next, Rich dials up Cincinnati Bengals rookie running back Giovani Bernard, who’s coming off a huge win against the Green Bay Packers in Week 3. The Bengals on Sunday became the first team in NFL history to give up a 14-point lead and then come back from a 16-point deficit to win. Rich discusses with Bernard how he his role in the offense has increased in Cincinnati’s back-to-back wins, where he’s found the end zone three times and is averaging over 5 yards per carry.
The podcast wraps up with actress, host, and now New York Times best-selling author, Aisha Tyler. Tyler, who also hosts her own podcast (Girl On Guy Podcast) swings by NFL network studios to discuss her beloved 49ers and the tough loss they had at the hands of Andrew Luck in the Colts.
