This is the final episode of season one of Football Nation’s “Monday Morning Huddle”. In this special double episode, host Dave Holcomb recaps Super Bowl XLVII in its entirety and brings on guest star FN Contributor Tom Pollin to help talk about the second half. Next, the show features Quarterback Joe Flacco’s MVP performance, two head coaching brother’s embrace, the controversy surrounding Linebacker Ray Lewis, and then finally the 2012 NFL awards and Hall of Fame class in the second half of the episode.

Dave Holcomb would like to thank Bill Enright, all the guest stars that helped fill “Monday Morning Huddle” with great content and all the listeners for following along since the summer.

Season 2 of “Monday Morning Huddle” hopes to return no later than June, but maybe as soon as April to cover the NFL draft.
