Football Nation Presents: The Sports-Casters Podcast Episode 1

Football Nation is proud to present the first episode of our new podcast with The Sports-Casters. Hosts Steve Bennett and Don Russ interview the biggest names in sports media and pop culture.

They kick off the Football Nation series with sports-writing rock star  Peter King of Sports Illustrated and NBC Sports. King chats with our boys from Buffalo about the Saints bounty scandal, the Bills' aggressive offseason, a potential glut of QBs in the top three spots of the NFL Draft and much more.

Among other things, King says:

  • Sean Payton's appeal will fail but that the Saints will remain competitive in 2012 without him
  • the Washington Redskins need RGIII and he needs Mike Shanahan
  • there's a "real possibility" the Dolphins move up to the No. 3 spot to land QB Ryan Tannehill
  • "I still believe" in Sam Bradford, especially with the St. Louis Rams sitting on top of so many picks in upcoming drafts
  • The Jets "do not have a lot of confidence" in Mark Sanchez

Steve and Don kick off each podcast with "3 Things" but manage to tackle so much more in this week's segment:  Detroit Lion's running back Mikel Leshoure, chewing marijuana, new NFL team jersys from Nike, strange results from the Wonderlic, and the Jets signing a rugby player while potentially being the subject of the new season of "Hard Knocks."

Over 1,000 page views. The good news is that only about 700 of them are me trying to see how many page views we got. I hope football nation enjoyed the show. We plan on being a part of the community here and making sure the people who make Football Nation great a part of the podcast. Don started that trend by highlighting the Movie Draft as one of his three things.

What did you guys like?
What did you hate?
What do you want more of?

Unofficial poll- My voice is sexier than Don's, right?

I can't wait for Tuesday. Episode 2.

My IP can't be recorded because I pulled the tab off of the front of the video tape.
