Podcast: Laurent Robinson, Film Room Previews

By Will Brinson & Ryan Wilson

We get things started by welcoming Cowboys wide receiver Laurent Robinson to the podcast. It's fair to say that Robinson came out of nowhere this season to catch 54 passes for 858 yards and 11 touchdowns. By the time it was over, he was third on the team in receptions (behind Jason Witten and Dez Bryant) and the team leader in TD grabs.

We talked to him about his nomination for Vizio's Top Value Performer award, if the Cowboys are finally prepared to make the playoffs next year, where Tony Romo ranks among NFL quarterbacks, and if we should all give Jason Garrett a break.

Eye on Football analyst Andy Benoit joins us for the second half of the show to break down the Xs and Os for each divisional matchup, which will hopefully prove more compelling than last week's wild-card games.

Pick-6 Podcast: Steelers D, coaching rumors, MDS

By Will Brinson & Ryan Wilson

The fallout from the Steelers loss to the Broncos continues...

We start the show by discussing if Pittsburgh's defense is again old. (You'll remember, this was a hot topic for the first month or so of the season and then the unit ended the year in a familiar place -- among the NFL's best defenses. Oddly, we didn't hear anything about it until the Steelers' D got Tebow'd Sunday. Then, predictably, the concerns returned.)

We then turn the conversation to whether the Falcons' 2011 draft-day trade for Julio Jones should be considered a whiff, before returning to Steelers-Broncos to revisit James Harrison's hit on Eric Decker. The new safety rules prohibit going high on receivers but there's no mention of going low. Harrison did just that, Decker was knocked out of the game, and many of the fears players voiced when the new rules were implemented were realized in Denver on that play.

Finally, ProFootballTalk.com's Michael David Smith makes his weekly visit to the podcast to talk about all of the aformentioned topics as well as what we can expect in the divisional round of the playoffs.

Wild-Card Weekend podcast review

By Will Brinson & Ryan Wilson

Well then. Wild-card weekend looked like it would lack the requisite drama of an NFL playoff weekend and then Tim Tebow happened. Oh no.

We break down the Broncos stunning win over the Steelers, wonder whether John Elway is screwed for 2012, debate whether the Steelers should be disappointed and discuss Tebow's chances against the Patriots (and the guy who drafted him, Josh McDaniels!).

Then we take a look at the other wild-card games, wondering if the Falcons need to make some changes and whether or not they lost the Julio Jones trade. We discuss if the Giants are capable of beating the Packers and then move to onto the Saints, who have to go outside. Can they win in San Francisco? Should they be favored? Did the Lions get hosed by the refs? Should they be excited about the future?

And finally we take a look at the Texans-Bengals game (it seems so long ago) and debate whether Houston's got a shot at upending the Ravens.

Wild-Card Weekend podcast preview

By Will Brinson & Ryan Wilson

It's playoff preview time and that means our full-on Wild-Card Weekend preview.

Before we dive into the games, we debate the Penn State hire of Bill O'Brien (and wonder what the hell is wrong with all these members of the Penn State "family" who are ripping the hire publicly), discuss the possibility of Ray Horton going to St. Louis and some other coaching moves.

Then we dive into the games and ask all the important questions: Are the Bengals and Texans too similar? Can Johnathan Joseph keep A.J. Green in check? Will the Bengals rush defense show up on Saturday?

How about the Lions? Did Wilson really pick them to win? Can Ndamukong Suh make a difference? Are the Falcons the worst nightmare for Eli Manning? Will the Giants pass rush show up on Sunday? And, of course, will Tebowmania finally die?

Pick-6 Podcast: MDS, end-of-year awards

By Will Brinson & Ryan Wilson

The playoffs are upon us but before we go full throttle for five more weeks of football, we first take a moment to look back on the 2011 regular season.

First, we discuss the latest names to join the ranks of the unemployed: Raheem Morris, Steve Spagnuolo and Bill and Chris Polian, as well as a Tuesday addendum to Black Monday's victims, former Bears general manager Jerry Angelo.

Then the conversation turns to our best and worst of 2011 list, from league MVP to biggest free-agent bust. 

Michael David Smith of ProFootballTalk.com joins the podcast give us his awards, discuss the Lions' tall task of facing the Saints in New Orleans, the Steelers-Broncos matchup, and what the future holds for the Colts now that the Polians aren't in the front office.

Talking starts promptly...

Pick-Six Podcast: Week 17 preview, coach carousel

By Will Brinson & Ryan Wilson

Our last weekly preview of the season is also the last one of 2011 (is the "see you next year!" joke ever funny?). We hope you enjoyed it this year and if you've got anything you'd like to see improved/changed/worked on whatever, let us know.

In the meantime, we break down the all the big games from Week 17 and wonder if the Bengals can beat the Ravens, who this game means the most for, how much Anquan Boldin's loss hurts Baltimore and who's to blame for the Jets debacle, the chances of the Raiders and Broncos making the playoffs and whether or not Tim Tebow should be the Broncos starter going forward.

Then we take a look at what coaches are on the hot seat, who's likely to be fired on Monday, plus much, much more.
