More season preview podcasts! This time we talk a lot of over/unders with Doug Kezirian of the ESPN Behind the Bets podcast. We dive into FOA 2018 and why the Colts, Cowboys, and Dolphins should exceed expectations while Jacksonville and Carolina should regress. My section starts around 17:20 in.

Hey, it's time for another preseason podcast! I'm on here with Matt Kelley on RotoUnderworld's Sonic Truth podcast. We're talking about the imbalance between the NFC and AFC, judging Jimmy Garoppolo despite small sample size, and why FO expects Indianapolis and Dallas to be better than conventional wisdom.

AAF Different From Leagues That Have Come Before

AAF Different From Leagues That Have Come Before

I've got to be honest, this AAF thing sounds like the best plan for a spring league yet. They really are trying to hit the sweet spot of real football as a developmental league, working with the NFL rather than challenging it. They've got real coaches involved, including Brad Childress, Mike Martz, and Rick Neuheisel. The teams are in medium-sized southern cities without NFL clubs (well, Salt Lake City isn't exactly southern) plus Phoenix and Atlanta. They've got a TV contract with CBS Sports Network.
