Check out ChabDog Sports Talk’s Sunday, January 16 Show …

Thanks to Eric the Well-read (who took time off from his busy social schedule), Frank Fleming (who opened the screen door to his submarine), Mark Caruso (who broke his date with the white widow) and Ben Sarinana (who said some very nice things about Big Ben) for a great show. And ChabDog is happy to report that Marc got both Sunday games wrong, while the rest of us were 2 for 2.

Check out ChabDog Sports Talk’s Sunday January 8 Show….

It was a pleasant, informative show until about the 70 minute mark, then chaos erupted, but all participants survived the fireworks.
Plenty of predictions, benedictions, and Sopranos clips to go around, and in the end we all found common ground.

Thanks to Eric the Well-read, Frank Fleming, Marc Caruso, Stan Ber and Ben Sarinana for making it a memorable show for Wildcard Sunday.

NFL Update, Recap and Perspectives: Saturday, 1-8

NFL Update:

  • Seahawks have no problem grabbing the scared kitties from Motown and dunking them kerplunk in Puget Sound. If what we saw is the return of a viable Seattle running game that can control the clock and create opportunities for Russell Wilson, Atlanta should be very worried. #Seahawks #Lions
  • Brock looks like a rock star, and blame at least part of this inept Raider offensive showing on Del Rio — that weak, unimaginative game plan was not going anywhere against the stout Texans. #Texans #Raiders
  • Rodgers will remain on his game, and will lambaste at Lambeau the myth of the all-powerful Giant defense with more herky jerky hurling. #Packers #Giants
  • Look for the Steeler defense to bottle up J. Ajayi at Heinz, while Ben speed reads the weak Miami secondary. Pittsburgh relishes opportunities like this to focus on stopping the run. #Steelers #Dolphins
