The Buffalo Bills are trying to settle a bunch of weird and opaque scores with the entire rest of the world. The New England Patriots are the best football team on the planet, and somehow even angrier. Oh hell yes it's time to turn up the Footballz.
In response to a less-than-thrilling Monday Night Football match-up, our heroes respond with a full slate of in-studio guests, a special call-in guest, and basically anything else necessary to distract you from the Houston Texans.
In which our heroes pass on all the newfangled tricks and gimmicks, say no-thanks to all the finesse stuff, and go forward with an old-fashioned, no-guest, power-Footballz approach for Panthers/Colts on Monday Night Football.
In which TD drowns out the spectacle of the Baltimore Ravens and Arizona Cardinals pecking ineffectually at each other with some help from comedian Sarah Boatright and Onion AV Club EIC John Teti. As ever, a Gruden-free experience is GUARANTEED.
The New York Giants and the Philadelphia Eagles don't like each other very much. Which is interesting, because they're not very popular among anyone but their fans, either. When they square off, it's a Monday Night Football to mute, and then talk over.
Our heroes are at full strength for Monday Night Football, and will be doing their thing live and in person from Parlor Sports in Somerville, Massachusetts. Expect laughs and games and jokes and guests. Expect not to be able to hear the ESPN audio track at all.
For this week's Monday Night Football rematch of Super Bowl I, our heroes at the Footballz Podcast are going back to their roots. No fancy stuff. No guests. Just a concerted attempt to provide something more fun to listen to than the ESPN broadcast.
...and with it, the battle is rejoined. Tonight, our heroes rejoin the battle, and provide a healthy Gruden-free alternative—and jokes, and music, and a fourth quarter guest—to a Monday night tradition.
