Call in time was changed to the end of the show to encourage more people to call in. If you want to get on air, be sure to call in around 11:15pm ET. I will do the best to limit your hold time.
CALL IN RULES: Because of we expect heavier-than-normal call volume this week, all calls will be limited to around 5 minutes. There are no topic restrictions, but you ask that you please refrain from going overboard on the profanity.
I don´t care what anyone says, Peyton would be the winner of Ultimate Survival: the Gridiron edition.
I have to be up for work in 5 hours and have a meeting and comp talks tomorrow. I can't get hammered now. That means it's time to go to sleep rather than listen to this.
He CAN´T put them to use. Don´t ask a lemon tree to give you peaches. Or a winning QB to actually do something on the field.
So would Baltimore fans feel better if we traded the Luck pick to them for Ray Rice and their first round pick the next two years?
Hey, can you give a discussion of Manning after the career is over. What does he do next? TV? Coaching?
Anyone is better than Peyton Manning, that´s what it´s about. Or they could have been better than him, Derek Anderson, Sanchez and all of them, because Peyton is a choker! Eleventy!!! Trotter in a nutshell.
I think the bad thing is that Manning will never be viewed as the greatest by the national media. The Reason? He played in Indy, not NY, Boston, or California.
Yes, that was one of the stupidest things I have come across. I can´t believe he advanced that argument seriously.
First time listening, and I thought every minute was wonderful. @GregC
@GregC Tonight was fine, but i don't know how it'll be later in the off season.
@GregC Maybe for the offseason? Feel like you filled time well enough, though.
@thejoshbaker Yes, and a purple unicorn will be offensive coordinator.
@thejoshbaker Not true... Flacco is the reason Ed Reed gets to much INT practice!
How else do you think he's so good? He gets to catch just as many balls as the receivers
@GregC That is awesome!
@GregC You are ridiculous. haha.
@Goeland Is your "eleventy" reference an homage to Homestar? Didn't catch the podcast so I could be completely off in left field here. Just curious.
@thejoshbaker He passed out like three hours ago.
And one of those 39 .5 games was against Baltimore, in what may be the greatest offensive game Ray Lewis saw in his life.
@mshah9008 thanks for your snark!
@mshah9008 I´m surprised there wasn´t more discussion about Caldwell´s merits.
@mattshedd glad you enjoyed it. Guess I'm just harder on us than I need to be.
@mattshedd SWEET - thanks!!!
@KMR There will probably be a lot of stunned silence and crying as the inevitable really comes true.
@thejoshbaker okay, thought I was struggling to fill time at the end.
@GregC well... no one else was :D
@GregC Yep, I am part of the club now
