Podcast: DITCOW 2021 NFL Draft Preview w/ Ron in NJ (04-28-2021)

April 28th, 2021 · Comments

2021-04-28-nfl-draft-preview.jpg

Ron in NJ returns for our annual DITCOW NFL Draft Preview show.  There is high drama surrounding the top three picks in the draft, with many rumblings about the 49ers trading up to the 3rd overall pick with the unusual choice of picking Mac Jones at QB from Alabama.  Could that be an overpay by the Niners and what would be their other choices?  Plus the other big QBs in our draft, with the clear-cut #1 projected pick of Trever Lawrence out of Clemson likely going to Jacksonville.  We chat some other big prospects like Zach Wilson, QB out of BYU, and Trey Lance, QB out of North Dakota St. (FCS).  It also looks like a big year for Wide Receiver prospects like Jaylen Waddle and Devonta Smith both from Alabama.  Ron gets into a number of big prospects such at Kyle Pitts (TE), Penei Sewell (OL), Patrick Surtain II (CB), and many more.  Lastly, Ron and Dave present their mock draft for the first round and other predictions for this year's draft in Cleveland, OH.

Podcast: The Super League Fail (04-26-2021)

Parcells Falling Out joins Dave to cover the impending end for the European Super League in Football/Soccer.   We'll cover the six English teams that pulled out first along with the teams from other leagues such as Real Madrid and Barcelona who wanted to ride it out and teams in between.   It was a matter of big controversy for fans of the big European Leagues with fan protests all over various football stadia.   Was the Super League a good idea or was it an attempt at further greed by the power clubs?   Later, Dave will try to place the saga of the Super League in context with a similarly proposed move in College Football where the Power Five Conferences would leave the NCAA.
