NFL: The Dave Dameshek Football Program (general)

Dave Dameshek is joined by NFL.com’s Around the League head honcho Gregg Rosenthal to talk about Tim Tebow joining the New England Patriots, the East Coast-West Coast NFL divide, best Super Bowl matchups and which physical sense we could most easily sacrifice if need be. Then, Dave turns his attention to record-setting Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten to talk about Jason’s ranking on NFL Network’s "The Top 100: Players of 2013" list and which NFC East team he most enjoys defeating.

Dave Dameshek is joined by "Handsome" Hank who fills in for Adam Rank, who is on assignment, with guest producer "Neck-tie" Milner. The trio open a can of worms on the best two-topping pizzas. Dave, as always, shows his age-ism by downplaying pineapple as well as the "scam" of hair conditioner. And by the way, half of the ATL debate club, Marc Sessler, joins the cast to share his list of the top quarterbacks in the league, much to the chagrin of Dave and Hank. Finally, Shek and Hank share their excitement for Super Bowl L in San Francisco as they prepare their restaurant checklist years in advance.
