Very excited to have longtime NFL personnel man Michael Lombardi on every week. Usually we'll have him on Thursdays, but we had some technical glitches yesterday. We hit on a bunch of stuff around the league today, including: The Browns' plan(?) for Dez Bryant Teddy Bridgewater's comeback from injury, and Sam Darnold's processing speed.
Life's pretty scary. Kids are addicted to smart phones, live streamers are making $1 million per year, and D.J. Swearinger is making dudes flinch. Paul and I talk about all of it on Short Attention Span Tuesday.
In this week's Reality Review, we break down Hard Knocks, Episode I, as well as the last couple episodes of Very Cavallari. Um, parental warning: Somehow we ended up talking about masturbation in the first few minutes and cunnilingus in the last few minutes. Otherwise it's a cleeean experience.
Rising media star Paul Gallant (@GallantSays) joins me as we discuss my genuine(!) excitement over this year's pre-season. We discuss: Rookie quarterbacks we don't hate; is the helmet rule gonna ruin football; Bill Belichick shows that flip flops are the ultimate alpha move.
We recap all things Cutler from Very Cavallari, Episode 3. Why is he dressed like a skinny John Popper? Why are goats so heavily featured? And how did we end up on the topic of Amy Schumer in the middle of all this? We also touch on Total Bellas and the insufferable saga that is Nikki Bella and John Cena's relationship.
We take a look at all things Cutler in Very Cavallari, Episode 2. We may be the first ones to notice that this week's episode featured a scene eerily reminiscent of the notorious Nashville search for Vince Young when he wasn't actually missing.
My friend and sports radio host Sean Pendergast debuts on our new Reality Review segment, where we talk about sports related reality TV and documentaries. Today we tackle Very Cavallari, the reality show about Jay Cutler's wife (with a heavy dose of grumpy Jay). We also discuss the HBO documentary about Andre the Giant, which was a whole lot of fun because Sean is somewhat of a wrestling historian.
Astronaut Clayton Anderson spent 167 days in space, but it wasn't easy getting there; he applied to be an astronaut 15 times in 15 years before he ultimately succeeded. I visited him in his home, and we discussed not being bashful about your dreams, exercising in space, and a bunch of other good things. His new book, "It's a Question of Space: An Ordinary Astronaut's Answers to Sometimes Extraordinary Questions" will be available July 1 on Amazon and elsewhere.
I sat down with Houston radio legend Barry Warner. He has some incredible stories about Al Davis, Paul Brown, Bud Adams, and more. This one was a lot of fun. 6:16 Barry disguises himself as a room service waiter to get an interview with Al Davis 12:53 Al Davis screws over the NFL by signing everybody in the AFL office to two year contracts before the merger occurs. 16:10 Why Al Davis didn’t like Mike Shanahan. 24:12 Barry Warner turns down a job offer from Paul Brown. Paul Brown talks...
I sat down with Dan Riley, who was an NFL strength and conditioning coach for 27 years. He was a pioneer in strength training for football and the HIT method (High intensity training). He was also one of my favorite coaches and people I worked with in 3 decades of football.
Roberta is a team dietitian for the Houston Astros, and was the dietitian for the Houston Texans while I was there. We had a great conversation about the Astros pitching staff, Tom Brady's nutrition advice, and why there are some freaks in the NFL that are actually too lean for their own good. A bunch of advice for us normal folks as well. 1:49 Astros pitching staff, 5:38 Lebron James supposedly gaining 7 lbs in a game, 7:48 Carb levels for athletes, 16:00 How much protein do you really...
My old teammate Kailee Wong hung out with me. We talked about how he's revitalized his health with a bunch of cool new methods. We also talked about the time he found a dead body in the trunk of a car.
