In the first of our snapshot podcast's Mark looks back at the 10 stories making the NFL news this week. From the Combine to cockroaches we've got you covered. Next week Mark and James will return with a standard issue episode as we edge deeper into draft season
As the NFL world struggles to come to terms with the "best Super Bowl ever™") Mark and James explain just how the Patriots pulled off the biggest comeback in Super Bowl history - and how the Falcons snatched defeat from the jaws of victory. There's also a quick look at the draft stock exchange to see who is rising and falling this week.
We hit the streets to get the unsuspecting public of London's views on the biggest game in our sport. Mark and James look at whether the best ranked Falcons offence can overcome the number one scoring defence, how important superstitions are and find out just how awkward it would be if Brady received the Vince Lombardi trophy from Roger Goodell.
Jeff Reinebold and Neil Reynolds have a chat with James about the future of the NFL, how to coach special teams and the likelihood of a franchise in the UK and where not to surf. Mark and James also discuss the dissenting comments by Philip Rivers and Ben Roethlisberger that have some questioning their respective futures, the pro bowl and who to look for in the premiere pre-draft college game... all while contending with a team full of builders dismantling the neighbouring studio... It's all go this week!
Toe tappign sideline catches as time expired, game changing penalties and elite quarterback play were the hallmarks of the divisional round of playoffs, can the AFC and NFC championship games match the drama as we discover the participants for Superbowl LI? Simon Hunter joins Mark Payne as the pair look over the Packers, Falcons, Steelers and Patriots and name the teams they think will be playing each other for the Vince Lombardi trophy in Houston
The Charges have fled to LA, the Clemson Tigers caused an upset in the National Championship with one second left on the clock and the coaching carousel is flying round so faster than Tyreek Hill on a bubble screen. The Wildcard Round didn't live up to expectations but that leaves us with four huge games to decide who reaches the Conference Championship. And if you're unaffected by that James has been checking out one of the stars from the new National Champions ahead of the 2017 draft...
32 teams have become 12 and by the end of the week there will only be 8 teams left to battle for the Vince Lombardi trophy. But it's not only wildcard weekend that has drawn our attention this week, the NFL has axed five coaches, a superbowl winning HC has retired and there's also a small thing called the National Championship to battle for in College Football.. So what are you waiting for? Press play now!
The end of the regular season means crucial matchups with playoff places up for grabs. We look ahead to Week 17 - look back at a shocking Week 16 that saw wins for the three worst teams in football, another head coach lose their job and season ending injuries to two franchise quarterbacks. There's also another college player in the prospect factory and the conclusion of the greatest QB of all time.
It's Christmas! Crunch time in the NFL, Bowl season, and Mark did the show half-cut... Expect innuendos, obscure nineties references and more Idaho Potato bowl than you can shake a stick at!
