After taking a few weeks off to enjoy a little summer vacation, the #REP is back with a fresh episode. The National Football League is in the midst of its offseason and with Team USA advancing to the Round of 16 on Thursday in the 2014 FIFA World Cup, the guys shift the talk from pigskin to soccer. There are still plenty of NFL storylines taking place during the offseason, and to hit on those Rich welcomes in three-time Super Bowl champion Willie McGinest and Super Bowl XLII champion Shaun O’Hara to discuss a variety of topics. Will Johnny Manziel or Brian Hoyer be the starter for Cleveland in Week 1 vs. Pittsburgh? Will the Seahawks repeat or will another NFC West team knock them off? How important is the NFL Rookie Symposium and what more… Read

Garcia also worked this offseason with Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez in hopes of getting him ready for new Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhigweg and his west coast offense. Garcia played in Mornhigweg’s system in both Philadelphia and San Francisco, having his best year as quarterback under him in 2000.
Up next, Jon Hein, the host of “The Wrap Show” on Howard 100 on Sirius satellite radio, dials into chat about a myriad of pop culture topics, but none more pressing than “Game of Thrones” and this week’s infamous ‘Red Wedding’ episode. Hein also sheds some light the immensely popular “Howard Stern Show.”
The show wraps up with Rich and producers Chris Law and Chris Brockman cuing back up a brief discussion they had earlier in the week with Willie McGinest about Justin Beiber.

The game lost a legend on Monday after the passing of Pro Football Hall of Famer David “Deacon” Jones. This special edition of “The Rich Eisen Podcast” recounts the profound impact that Deacon had, both on and off the gridiron. The final surviving member of “The Fearsome Foursome,” Rosey Grier, joins Rich to remember his teammate and longtime friend. Joining Grier and Rich during the interview is fellow Hall of Famer Michael Irvin and class of 2013 inductee Warren Sapp, who share their memories of Deacon. Rich then dials up yet another Hall of Famer, as Jack Youngblood joins the podcast to discuss what it was like learning from “The Secretary of Defense” as a rookie with the Los Angeles Rams, and also shares some good stories from their days in Canton, Ohio, for Hall of Fame inductions. Jennifer Allen, the daughter of Hall of Fame coach George Allen and sister to Washington Redskins GM Bruce Allen, phones in to share her unique perspective on Deacon. Jones was an extremely close family friend of the Allens while Jennifer was growing up and remained such until his death Monday. And lastly, our own Willie McGinest stops by the studio to share what Deacon meant to him as an outside linebacker/defensive end who played in the league 30-plus years after Deacon did, and what… Read
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.
