NFL: The Dave Dameshek Football Program (general)

Episode #65 features an extended visit the Face of the NFL Network, Rich Eisen, who just returned with Shek from the NFL Draft in Manhattan.  The fellas break down which teams succeeded and failed, and also debate the folly of attempting to determine "winners" and "losers" in the speculative exercise of drafting.  Rank and Shek are also reunited with producer Necktie Milner and by resident Dolphins fan, Handsome Hank for thoughts on Miami taking Ryan Tannehill, then discuss John Harbaugh's critique of the stained Pats' dynasty.  We hope you'll enjoy it... but there's no saying for sure 'til you give it a listen.
