NFL: The Dave Dameshek Football Program

Dave and Adam Rank discuss the players coming in 60-51 on the NFL Network's Top 100 players of 2010 list, focusing on the confusing standard that put Marques Colston ahead of 2010 stats leader Brandon Lloyd while leaving the likes of Stevie Johnson and Mike Wallace completely out.  The fellas also analyze whether Matt Ryan is deserving of being ranked at 52 when Eli Manning and his Super Bowl ring are nowhere to be found.

Inspired by the redemptive powers of spring, Dave alters history in favor of Dannys White and Marino in the latest installment of the "N if L".  Then, on the heels of Ray Lewis' violent vision for a football-less future, Dave and podcast chum Adam Rank discuss the best apocalyptic movies ever.  Dave, Rank, and Necktie Milner also debate which NFL franchise has had the most great quarterbacks.  And finally, Handsome Hank reads tweets from Pittsburgh's outside linebackers responding to the so-called "Steeler Rule".  In summation, you're gonna love it.  Or will you?

Episode 2 of the Dave Dameshek Football Program opens with a shot across the bow to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell by talking about basketball.

The fellas then hash out the toughest names in NFL history, and then continue the debate of the most overrated players currently in the NFL.

And finally, with Arnold Schwarzenegger in the news, the gang debates which actor has been in the most great movies in cinema history.

To make a long story short, it was gangbusters!
