Matt Chatham has strong opinions about the NFL and for good reason - he is a three time superbowl winning linebacker from the New England Patriots - yep those same Patriots who are facing four games without star quarterback Tom Brady.
Matt holds no punches in this interview - which was scheduled before the news about NFL Commishioner Rodger Goodell upholding the suspension. Now once again the NFL players, staffs, and fans enter training camps with off-field drama.
This is an episode you don't want to miss.
Matt is also the founder of FootballbyFootball.com a site with dives head first into the world of football from the men who played at professional levels. He also happens to have a podcast on BlogTalkRadio.com by the same name.
Former Broncos safety Nick Ferguson and former Patriots & Panthers tight end Jermaine Wiggins join Matt Chatham to dive into the two big NFL conference championship games, taking a critical look at who each of these teams really are today. Are the Carolina Panthers built to get (and hold) a lead against the explosive and balanced Arizona Cardinals? Wiggy, who played in Super Bowls for both the Patriots and the Panthers, offers his insight on the underrated playoff atmosphere Arizona players can expect in Charlotte.
The guys then turn their attention to the AFC game out in Denver, looking closely at what's left of this Broncos offense in Peyton Manning's final stages of his career, and how they can still get the job done if you let them. The guys then examine the Patriots and how they differ this time around than when they lost to the Broncos in November. Do the Patriots have enough this time around for a different outcome in Denver?
Emjoy the show!
Chatham & Quinn dive into the newest version of the CFB Playoff Rankings, discussing the clearing paths for Oklahoma, Michigan State (or Iowa), Clemson and Alabama. The guys then discuss the plausibility of a change on the back of the Top 4, examining the cases for Stanford, Florida, UNC, and even Ohio State if chaos were to ensue this weekend.
The guys then give their final review of the Heisman candidates, including Deshaun Watson, Derrick Henry, Christian McCaffrey, and Baker Mayfield.
Finally, Brady makes a case against the peculiar exclusion of Navy QB Keenan Reynolds from at least a trip to NY.
Former NFL players Matt Chatham & Brady Poppinga return to preview a huge weekend of uncertain NFL storylines and top matchups.
The guys dive into what's made the surprising Minnesota Vikings tick as they face the Green Bay Packers with an opportunity to take control of the NFC North. Can Tony Romo hit the ground running for the Dallas Cowboys offense in his return from injury without any room for error in the standings? Can Brock Osweiler be an upgrade to a Denver Broncos offense that's been flat on its back? Can the Buffalo Bills finally control New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski in the absence of Julian Edelman? And in the weekend's best matchup, what Cincinnati Bengals team shows up in Arizona to face the red-hot Cardinals?
We've got a jam-packed show for you, so sit back and enjoy!
Chatham and Quinn go around the NFL Wild-Card Weekend bracket and break down the four contests. Can the Green Bay Packers find their lost offense against the surprising Washington Redskins? Will the Minnesota Vikings' deliberate and plodding style be enough if the Seattle Seahawks pour on the points in the frigid weather? In a matchup of surprise teams, will either the Kansas City Chiefs or Houston Texans make enough plays to advance to the divisional round? And finally, will we see that potent Pittsburgh Steelers offense we're used to seeing if DeAngelo Williams' ankle keeps him out? Or is the potential loss of a run game the opportunity the Bengals needed to advance past their rival?
The guys end the show by evaluating the vacant NFL coaching postions and a brief discussion of the potential role of analytics in an NFL front office.
Enjoy the show!
Matt Chatham and Brady Quinn take the hot-off-the press playoff rankings and talk through the top three 1-loss teams in the rankings (Alabama, Notre Dame & Oklahoma). Did the committee get it right this week?
The guys also dive into the bizarre situation of Brady's alma mater invading Boston and Fenway Park this weekend for another installment of the Shamrock Series, this year with the Irish playing a "home" game in Boston College's backyard. Is it right to plaster "Notre Dame" all over the hallowed grounds of a Boston institution like Fenway?
The fellas finish up looking ahead to the weekend matchups with big playoff implications, including Ohio State- Michigan State, TCU-Oklahoma and Baylor-Oklahoma State. .
Matt Chatham and Brady Quinn are back to walk through the 2nd edition of CFB Playoff rankings and debate where the committee stands -- from their apparent disdain for the Big 12, to the uncertain road ahead for the PAC 12, to an Iowa team that keeps turtling up the list, to an ACC conference that's looking Clemson or bust. Outside the Power 5 conferences, Quinn's Notre Dame Fighting Irish appear in the Top 4 for the first time, and Houston curiously continues to get no respect from the committee.
The guys also walk through the controversy at the end of the Nebraska-Michigan State game and talk officiating solutions that need to show up in both college and professional football.
Chatham & Quinn pick apart the newly-released CFB Playoff Rankings and the initial Top 4 of 1) Clemson 2) LSU 3) Ohio State and 4) Alabama. Is the PAC 12 already in trouble with no team in the Top 10? Is the committee screwing with people by placing a 1-loss Alabama in the Top 4 a week before they play LSU? Is the idea of two Big 10 teams in the final four all that crazy? Is Clemon just on a short-term rental of the top spot?
All this and a look ahead at the weekend's big games: Alabama-LSU, FSU-Clemson, TCU-Oklahoma State and more...
Chatham & Quinn wrap up the goofy end to the Michigan-Michigan State game and talk about their experiences regarding end-game special teams philosophy. The SEC comes into clearer focus with Alabama and LSU rising, while the PAC 12 sees its own separation with Utah and Stanford moving to the head of the class. Iowa forces the country to pay attention to the otherwise quiet B1G 10 West as Ohio State settles the JT Barrett or Cardale Jones dilemma (for now).
Another big week of college football talk on tap as the first playoff polls draw nearer...
How are players likely to respond in the Steve Sarkisian, Steve Spurrier, and Will Grier situations? Chatham & Quinn buckle up for a deep discussion from a players-point-of-view on how these pieces of national news are likely to be interpretted by the people who live them.
Are players likely to be disappointed in Steve Sarkisian behind closed doors? How much at fault is Athletic Director Pat Haden in the problem? How does the perception of USC change for a parent weighing whether or not to send their son or daughter to this institution?
Has Steve Spurrier undercut his message to players about competing by quitting when he did? Are players privately less likely to give Spurrier a pass for quitting based upon his resume as opposed to media members who don't have football experience?
Plus, the guys discuss Will Grier's mistake in context having gone through the process of trying to grow their body at the collegiate level, understanding the resources available to players so that they don't make this mistake...
Finally the guys preview the handful of monster games on this weekend's docket, including Michigan-Michigan State, Florida-LSU, Alabama-Texas A&M, Utah-Arizona State, UCLA-Stanford, and Iowa-Northwestern.
If you have ever traveled through the Springfield, Illinois area recently, you probably missed a great little railroad museum, just south of Springfield. The town of Chatham, Illinois has preserved their Chicago and Alton depot. The depot sits next to the Amtrak/UP line that runs from Chicago to St. Louis. The line is getting an upgrade to 110 mph for the higher speed program.
The museum is a great example of what can be done, when like minded people come together and preserve history.
New England, Green Bay, Denver, Carolina and Cincinnati all stand with unblemished 6-0 records entering Week 8 of the NFL season. Chatham & Poppinga are joined by former Baltimore Ravens offensive lineman and Super Bowl champ, Mike Flynn to talk through the potential vulnerabilities, weaknesses, and challenges for these teams that have been the class of the NFL so far.
Who has the toughest remaining schedule? Who still has a lot to prove? Who is the right matchup away from their first loss? The guys dive in to break it all down...
