Podcast: Power ranks, Jets S Leonhard, MDS

Posted by Will Brinson & Ryan Wilson

Week 2's all wrapped up and it's time to move on to the pointing and the judging and the laughing (at the Chiefs). Pete Prisco's power rankings are out and so we break down who's in the right spot and who's in the wrong spot.

Jets safety Jim Leonhard, who's working with Farkas Eye Black to stop athletes from wearing stickers on their faces, joins us to talk about how good a quarterback Luke McCown is, whether the Jets can air it out, if he's concerned about too much passing in the game (as a defensive back), how the Jets gameplanned for Tony Romo plus much, much more.

Also, Michael David Smith of Pro Football Talk swings by the show to break down Week 2 and debate whether the Colts or the Chiefs are the worst team in the NFL, plus a quick breakdown of the final episode of "Entourage."

Podcast: AJ Hawk, Power Rankings, good/bad/ugly

Posted by Will Brinson & Ryan Wilson

Power rankings time! Pete Prisco's got his out and what would a Wednesday be without some lively debate about where teams rank before the season even starts? And with our columnists dispatched to three specific locations, we talk about breaking the NFL into three catagories (good/bad/ugly) -- where does your team fall?

Also, A.J. Hawk, linebacker for the defending champion Green Bay Packers, joins the podcast. We talk about the Packers flying under the radar, if they're motivated by the Eagles being a "dream team," how he's embracing a role as a leader and what he thinks about HGH testing.

"I think it's awesome that they're going to start testing for HGH," Hawk told CBSSports.com. "I think it's a great thing for the game. I think baseball showed throughout their whole time that if you don't test for something, guys are going to do it. I have no idea -- I've obviously never watched anyone or seen anyone do it, but I'm not stupid. I know it's going on.

"They can take my blood every single day if they want. I won't oppose that ever."

So, yeah, excellent stuff -- we also talk about his work with Gatorade on their "Beat the Heat" campaign, on the 10-year anniversary of Korey Stringer's death. (Go to NFL.com/TrainingCamp to download the free Heat Safety Kit.)

Ryan and I also discuss whether the recent Miami scandal will have any effect on current NFL players and talk about Aaron Maybin jumping ship from the Bills to the Jets.
