Jacob Rosales joins Dave to chat NFL football and preview the 2014 NFL season. We'll look at Johnny Manziel's first season w/ the Browns, the new rule changes enforcing more penalties on defensive contact, and look at what's to come for last year's Super Bowl teams the Broncos and Seahawks. History has shown super bowl teams not do well in the playoffs the next year but can both Seattle and Denver break the trend? Plus, who to pick in the AFC North? Could the Steelers make a return to the playoffs or will the Ravens bounce back from last year's bad season AND Ray Rice's ongoing controversy? How talented is the Packers' offense with Aaron Rodgers, Jordy Nelson, Eddie Lacy, James Starks, and a healthy offensive line? Will Colin Kaepernick, Frank Gore, Jim Harbaugh, and the 49ers be the team to beat in the NFC West or will the defending champion Seahawks repeat the title with Richard Sherman, Russell Wilson, and their remarkable defense? What is left of the Cowboys without Sean Lee and with a gimpy Tony Romo? Are Chip Kelly's Eagles ready to dominate the NFC East again and will Nick Foles repeat his fast start from 2013? Is this a make or break season for Robert Griffin III and the Redskins? Will anyone like the Titans challenge Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts? All these topics and much much more to discuss with Jake and Dave. PLUS Kevin on the Cape joins Dave in Hour 2 for "Random Questions." This week, we continue the cfcl.com "100 Questions" survey and take your questions via twitter and chat.

Not much for topical issues this week, we'll cover odds and ends and run a rare OPEN PHONES hour for our first hour on the podcast. On a small level we'll cover the Oakland A's slide following a blockbuster trade of Yoenis Cespedes for the Red Sox' Ace Jon Lester. Has it not been worth the trade so far after the A's lost 7 of 8 games? Will the A's still be confident they made the right choice following the dog days of summer? That AND Kevin on the Cape back with Dave for an extended "Random Questions" in Hour 2 or even earlier. Dave is going to owe Kevin a big apology! Special note: The title of the show has nothing to do with anything. Next week is our NFL Preview podcast.
