Episodes

14: Offensive Line Primer

Joined by Duke Mayweather to talk a position we feel the Chargers may address, offensive tackles. Duke is one of, if not the smartest person when it comes to offensive lineman. He played in college, coached in college, and was the right hand man for former All-Pro LeCharles Bentley’s OL performance academy.

We started off by looking at what traits Duke looks for in the position, and tied it into specific prospects. We then went over our tackle rankings, some unheralded names, & who might be a bust. This is jam packed full of jargon so soak up the knowledge & follow Duke to ask him any questions about offensive line.

13: Talking with Stanford DE Henry Anderson

I wanted to change it up this week so instead of talking about a positional group in the draft I’m joined by Stanford’s defensive end Henry Anderson. If you missed it, I wrote about him on Tuesday and think he’ll be a very good player no matter where he goes. I asked Anderson a series of questions and just sort of gave him the floor.

We started talking about how he got to Stanford, and he tells a great story about Jim Harbaugh. We segue into who was the best players he faced in his career and one of the names he brings up will be very familiar to Charger fans. I asked Anderson what he feels like his best position would be in the NFL and if there are any things he looks for from an offensive lineman pre-snap that will help him win before the play even starts. We also talk about his combine and if he expected to test as well as he did, where are some areas he can improve on in his game, what he’s looking forward to in the NFL and much more.

This was fun to hear the player side of things, and hopefully I can get more prospects on to share their side of the story. Thank you to Henry for taking the time to do this and thank you for listening.

12: Running Backs in the 2015 NFL Draft

Joined by Emory Hunt of Football Gameplan this week to talk about running backs in the NFL Draft. Emory talks about traits that translate, so we give our top 3 traits that we feel translate to the NFL.

We get into the combine and why Emory thinks it’s not that valuable, and before moving on from the combine we make some predictions on who will be the top performers at each event.

We talk about why it’s important to have playmakers on your offense and go through some of the top players and say what their “trump card” is and what is a reason they won’t succeed.

Finally, we get into the best landing spot for each running back.

As always, thanks for listening.

11: Wide Receivers in the 2015 NFL Draft

After a long break, I’m bringing the podcast back to discuss the draft. I want to focus on specific positions each week and this week it’s wide receiver. I’m joined by Matt Harmon who does in depth studying of the position. He describes his study called “reception Perception.” We talk about what it is we look for in the position, what traits translate from college to the NFL, and tie that into some of the prospects. We also make some educated guesses on what players will do at the combine and the significance of the combine for the position.

As always, thanks for listening.

10: Is the Chargers’ Season Over?

Back after a couple weeks. I start out by letting you know that I don’t fault the people who sell their tickets. I know it’s not popular but what’s important to you or me isn’t what’s most important to the person next to us.

After that, I tell you why Chili is overrated.

I get back into the football side of things and why the offense is struggling and tie that in with what adjustments they need to make without Keenan Allen as well as how they match-up with the 49ers.

Finally, I give a hat tip to John Pagano and how well the defense has performed the last 2 weeks. I get into a little match-up talk with 49ers offense.

As always, thanks for listening guys.

9: Patriots Week!

I start out by going over some things that stood out in this last weeks thriller over the Ravens. Segue into previewing New England. This week I’m joined by Ethan Hammerman, a Patriots fan who writes about the team & covers the draft. Ethan actually lived in San Diego a year ago. We talk about everything from the matchups, to the hit podcast Serial, to the best Christmas movies of all time. We finish off by giving a prediction where I can’t say I’m as optimistic as I’ve been in the past.

As always, thanks for listening.

8: Raiders Review and Rams Preview

I’m joined by Matthew Stanley as we recap the Raiders game. We start out by talking about the backfield and what Ryan Mathews usage will be moving forward and why he should be used as a receiver. Continuing with the offense we go in depth on why and who is struggling for the offensive line and how that’s effecting the rest of the time. We finish off the offensive talk with how Philip Rivers has been performing.

Defensively, we both give praise to how the players were used, how they played, and the energy they brought. We segue into match ups against the Rams and go over what we’ve seen as well as the positives and negative match ups for San Diego. We finish off by giving a prediction for the game.

As always, thanks for listening.
