In today’s podcast, we get caught up on the free agency frenzy in the NFL with Fox NFL reporter/insider/draft guru/sideline reporter etc. Peter Schrager. Peter joins us from the University of Oregon pro day so we spend a bit of time on Marcus Mariota before moving into all the major signings and trades of the last week. Topics include…
– Marcus Mariota’s draft prospects and whether or not Chip Kelly channels his inner Mike Ditka.
– Kelly’s “plan” in Philadelphia and whether it really does exist.
– How difficult it is to break into the world of NFL insiders and compete with Schefter and Glazer.
– The very real pressure that exists for NFL reporters to break news around the clock, even the singles and doubles.
– What is going on in New Orleans with my Saints?
– Best and worst value signings in free agency.
– A look at the first 18 months of Fox Sports 1. We have a conversation about expectations, growth, challenging ESPN, and of course Mike Francesa.
And Peter also shares with us his vision of a travel/food show going to sports bars across the country. Think of it as a Diners, Drive-ins and Dives for Sports. How could that show fail? Make it happen, Fox Sports 1!
