Run from it, hide, you can’t escape the PODcast. It’s coming for you, and it’s bringing the best football talk this side of a gigabyte. This is nerd talk, I think.

Anyway, if you thought we’d be done with football after a dull Super Bowl, think again. We’re back, and this time we’ve got even more football to discuss. The offseason is here and free agency talk abounds, but we also get to enjoy the AAF and all its wonders.

This week on the PODcast

  • THE ALLIANCE keeps bringing football. You don’t get rest after the Super Bowl. There’s more football. This is better than draft spreadsheets. It’s football.
  • There’s a flood of innovations in the AAF, and we have a lot of them we enjoyed.
  • Ah, but what would the AAF be for some NFL fans if they couldn’t “scout”? We give you a handful of names of guys to keep eyes on, players who could make the NFL before long.
  • Let’s dive into free agency? The Lions will probably need to shop for a running back. Who are the best names on the market? Who should the Lions avoid? Who might be a great fit, and who’s the bargain option?
  • ...establish the run game.
  • RB segment runs long, but we also talk about possible replacements for TJ Lang and some tight ends as well!
  • In the mailbag, Hamza unveils a master plan to take a tight end early, Jeremy loses it over Matthew Stafford rumors and I teach ya’ll proper pasta utilization.
