Reporting as Eligible - Stafford Goffensive

On this episode of Reporting as Eligible, Paul and JR recap the Rams game, the terrible effort from Matthew Stafford, the MVS-like effort of Van Jefferson, the general trouble the Packers have with Jeffersons, and Joe Barry as a potential head coaching candidate after the season, which is just brain-destroying to think about.

Reporting as Eligible - Two Injured Tackles, One Kupp

On this episode of Reporting as Eligible, Paul and special guess Evan “Tex” Western return to all of the weirdness that was the Vikings game. The dropped picks! The penalties! The missed field goals.

Reporting as Eligible - Of Shareholding and Regular Holding

On this episode of Reporting as Eligible, Paul explains why your Packer stock is perfectly fine stock, and why everyone who wants Packer stock trading on the Nasdaq is a dope while Matt revels in his newfound ownership, and his TV appearance. JR then leads a discussion of the Packers pantsing of the Seahawks, especially on defense where the team recorded its 13th shutout since the merger. Is Joe Barry good? Is Kevin King good? What has gotten into Preston Smith? Can just any old person be...


RAE BONUS - Aaron's Intellectual Shortcuts

Hi everyone, This was a part last week's minipod and a few of our Patrons requested it be opened up in the main feed, so here it is. If you want a point-by-point breakdown of Aaron's McAfee appearance last week, logical fallacies, and what makes a lazy skeptic, this is for you. If you're sick of Aaron and Vaccines, skip this one, we'll be back next week with a regular football show. --- Send in a voice message:


Reporting as Eligible - Love in the Time of Covid

Reporting as Eligible - Love in the Time of Covid On this episode of Reporting as Eligible, Matt, Paul, and special guest JR Radcliffe discuss the one of the worst special teams performances ever, Jordan Love’s struggles, how much of that was his fault, what he needed to do better, what was doomed, and Matt LaFleur’s rough day.

Reporting as Eligible - Aaron and Semantic Nonsense

Paul and Special Guest JR Radcliffe discuss Aaron Rodgers, Covid, and what immunization actually means. Do the Packers have any hope of taking down the Chiefs with Jordan Love at the helm?

Reporting as Eligible - Owning the Bears Means Living Rent Free

On this week’s episode, JR and Paul discuss the Bucks cool transformer ring, the Packers slow slow beatdown of the Bears, why they’re so slow, whether they’re actually good at offense or defense, what would happen if they lost Davante, and the difficulties in adjusting for strength of schedule. Also, like all of the Football Team’s players are hurt, and the defense has regressed from basically the best in the league to the worst, and Ryan Fitzpatrick is hurt, as well as most of their...


Reporting as Eligible - Mo Worse Special Teams

In this episode of Reporting as Eligible, Paul, JR, and Matt discuss the gloriousness of Davante Adams and how Amari Rodgers is sort of the polar opposite of that. They also discuss red zone issues, the need for another receiver to step up, Bob being bad, Allen being absent, Cobb being Cromulent, and Taylor being Tall.

Reporting as Eligible - Ben Over, Burrow Head

On this episode, Paul and JR discuss the tragedy of Jaire’s injury, and just how bad it can be, potential replacements, methods of compensation, bargaining, denial, and acceptance. We also have our first big reassessment of Joe Barry, Maurice Drayton and the ten point swing that didn’t happen, Allen Lazard mauling people, Randall Cobb’s hyper efficiency and excellent chemistry, and options at OLB.

Reporting as Eligible - Joe Barry, We've Had Enough

Hold On, Hold On Paul, Matt, and JR discuss the Packers’ first win of 2021, and whether beating Detroit really counts. Was the offense really good or are we being bamboozled by a good quarter and a half? Aaron Jones saving the day, MVS’s early struggles, Josh Myers quiet good play, the hopeful ascension of Eric Stokes, the dominoes that fall if Stokes is actually good, De’Vondre Campbell’s veteran presents, Allen Lazard as the new Marcedes Lewis, and whether Aaron should have hit Lazard...


Reporting as Eligible - The Manbun of Quarterbacks

Reporting as Eligible – The Manbun of Quarterbacks In this week’s episode, Paul, JR, and Matt discuss bad hair, no hair, how you can’t actually evaluate much when people just play poorly, Aaron getting punched in the jiminy crickets, two-safety looks, game theory and running against two-safety looks, Joe Barry being terrible, but the Packer defensive front also being terrible and not technically his fault. Kevin King as Yuniesky Bentancourt, and also as a river-crossing scorpion, Rashan...

Will Hunter Bradley be on the team by the time you listen to this? Why did PFF grade the preseason line so well if Jordan Love was under pressure all the time...

Matt, Paul, and JR are all back for the 3rd preseason game, unlike everyone else in the NFL. They go over the big change at inside linebacker with Kamal Martin gone, and Oren Burks maybe improving, the Ka’dar Hollman trade, the upcoming Trubisky-to-Kumerow show, punters who could replace JK Scott, awful special teams, Kylin Hill, Malik Taylor, and the idea that one day Kurt Benkert may meet golfer Ben Curtis and have a confusing introduction. Also, Matub’s never seen The Royal Tenenbaums,...


Reporting As Eligible: DVOA Whips it Good

Nerds think running and inside linebackers don’t matter, but the Packer playoff experience begs to differ. It’s just Paul on vacation, traveling the Midwest as he provides a preseason primer of advanced stats, what they mean, why EPA really is more of a team stat, DVOA, CPOE, why certain attempts by Pro Football Focus to quantify positional value sometimes contradict other attempts by Pro Football Focus to quantify positional value, the mess that was the Adam Gase Jets, and the return to...


Reporting as Eligible - A Question of Love

All of this, plus listener questions and more, as season 3 of Reporting as Eligible kicks...

The boys also discuss the draft, the Packers’ non-reliance on RAS, how their picks really seemed to be more for need than “best player available,” how taking Amari Rodgers right between Dyami Brown and Nico...
