Call in to speak with the host
After what looks to be a dogged battle in the trenches between the San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks on Thursday Night, we offer you a little excitement as we debut our new NFC South correspondent. Tune in as co-hosts Rourke Decker, Nate Koenig, and Mike Jungblut are joined on the line by NFC South Insider Joe Mixon. Based in Georgia, Joe closely follows both the NFC South and AFC South divisions.
Although the Atlanta Falcons are on bye in Week 7, there will still be plenty of material for us to cover, especially since the Jacksonville Jaguars will be attempting to break out of their slump and make their way back into the win column. Joe has an impressive breadth and depth of NFL knowledge -- from the commonplace to the arcane -- so we will be sure to cover a variety of topics across the league.
Of course, we'll also plunge into the upcoming NFC North match-ups. Other than the NFC West, there aren't many divisions that have been more closely contested than the Black and Blue Division so far in 2012. Will this be the week the Green Bay Packers make a thrust toward reclaiming a share of the lead, or will the Minnesota Vikings and Chicago Bears be able to stave off the challenge for another week? Will the Detroit Lions manage to pull off the upset against the division-leading Bears on Monday Night Football, or will they settle back into irrelevance?
It's good to talk.
