hm, I thought I was horrible in the beginning, but everyone seems to have liked it. Not sure how we can carry this over into the next season. Maybe it's just a 'getting better' thing. @gizzardfanny
@GregC The only thing I didn't like was that you missed an obvious chance to make fun of Brady (I don't recall when it was, I just remember thinking: "Oh, now it's time for this weeks Brady-shot" and then it didn't come.)
i sent! sorry. Schedule is all kerfuckzled @gizzardfanny
@GregC Off topic, but when are you sending that email? I've been waiting in excitement since you wrote that cliffhanger.

Laura and I go for a full hour on the After Show - I explain that I'm not cheering for the Colts to lose, we talk about the draft, we talk about my kid, uh, stuff like that <3
@GregC Well since I´m not allowed to criticize you..
@Nathan Haza @GregC I don´t think you really need to enforce a strict time limit. Callers seems to alternate between lengthy and concise quite naturally. And for the Carls of the world, since we actually love listening to them, maybe just a gentle reminder that there are other callers? Anyway, that´s your call, and I love the show.
@GregC Eh, it's what the offseason is for! Been a lot of excitement the past couple of weeks so, dealing with all the sudden topics and ramifications all of these decisions will have on the franchise, you guys have done a superb job! It's been exciting to say the least!
@GregC Dats trooof right der.
@GregC No, I actually love the fact you all feel free to be silly at times, and make mistakes. It wouldn´t be the same if you were trying too hard, know what I mean? And you´re always very respectful of callers, which makes this a totally enjoyable experience.
First time listener. I only caught the last 30min, but I'm trying to hang around for the aftershow & I'll be back next podcast for sure! (4shizzle!)
From Dan in Columbus,
Great job Greg and Laura....this is a rare Wed night for me to be off work....hope to catch up with you as decisions are made and more info about Manning surfaces!

Irsay stated he RARELY used his "last say" ability but would use it when necessary. How often that is with a new GM is hard to say. I would assume Rigson at first would pass most everything by Irsay for his approval and as he earns Irsay's trust, Rigson will take full control.
I love how Carl talks right over Greg. He did it last week too. Hilarious......Sorry Greg just a joke.
Different perspective: What is Irsay's preparing the world for the Manning dump? and kinda trying to leave the GM out of it.
By which I mean that by focusing on him having the final decision, all the negative press would go on him if/when they get rid Manning.
Help out the first year GM by not putting him under the bus before even his first season
@mshah9008 Irsay himself will announce Manning retiring or leaving....he and Manning are together on Manning staying, if he's not...for any reason...Irsay will announce it.
@thefrozz Oh i fully imagine so, but I'm saying that by hamming in so hard that he has the final say, he's just putting the after effects of that decision on himself.
He doesn't want to have to release PM and then the new GM get all the blame/negativity in the media for making the right/wrong decision
@mshah9008 Interesting idea.
