We all know it’s early in the season and now is the time to keep expectations tempered, but it’s impossible to not be excited about some undefeated football teams! Maryland Football Head Coach DJ Durkin joins Jason and Jerry to talk a bit about the program, and how his freshman season is going. The Ravens are undefeated too, so the guys break down last weeks game and look ahead to Jacksonville. With all of that going on, J & J did not forget about the closest team to making the playoffs, the O’s.
Jason & Jerry tackled week one’s preview on their own, but this time around they wanted to get half of the Ravens’ backfield on to discuss the upcoming game. Terrance West has a history with the Browns and the guys wanted to tap into that along with his roots in Baltimore. The O’s push for the playoffs is a focus on the pod as usual, and Jason gives a peak behind the curtain of NFL Today.
Sometimes there’s no room on the pod for any more experts than the two currently employed by BmoreOpinionated. Jason & Jerry take care of looking at this weekend’s game against the Bills and project how the Purple and Black’s season will pan out. They didn’t forget the O’s as they hunt for October, so the guys discuss the roster and review how the team has been performing.
Former NFL & Terps star, Boomer Esiason, joins the show to talk about the NFL and state of Terps football program, but we got so much more. He tells stories that not many have heard about his days at Maryland and his times in Baltimore. The guys dig more and more into football, and Jason may need weekly visits from his baseball shrink as he is caught in one of those “death spirals”
Former Orioles pitcher and current Orioles Radio Network color commentator, Ben McDonald, revisits his up close look at the Birds with the guys. The Orioles’ number one pick in the 1988 draft is as close with the team as anyone when he’s in Baltimore, even if he is spending most of his time helping repair the damage in his hometown of Baton Rouge. Before Jason and Jerry pick his brain, they cover the biggest topics surrounding the Purple and Black as the real dress rehearsal is this week.
With the Orioles making their final trip out west, the guys called up Fox Sports’ MLB insider, Ken Rosenthal, who moonlights as Jason’s baseball therapist and realist. The diamond isn’t the only focus as Jerry’s desire to talk more in depth on the Ravens is quenched with the arrival of preseason. There is no better place to get prepared for the newest edition of the purple and black to kickoff than right here.
Ray Rice, in his own words, honest, candid, contrite, hopeful. His message will move you:
Not many people in the media know former Baltimore Raven, Ray Rice, like Jason and Jerry. Check out how he lays out what life is like for him now, how his career aspirations have changed dramatically, and what life really means to him going forward. The guys have a little fun with him amidst the serious tone of the interview in a way that only Coleman can achieve. All the essentials of every episode are there too, so don’t fret, J & J didn’t forget that there is plenty going on in Baltimore sports too.
The second half of summer heats up for Baltimore sports, so Jason & Jerry jump on the pressing topics facing the birds as the trade deadline creeps closer. Ravens players reported for training camp, and the guys to take a much closer look at them. Time to start getting an inside look.
Mr. Tony Kornheiser, left his radio days behind, and is warming up for life as a podcaster, so why not get up to speed with the guys! Tony goes in depth on the transition, and ensures the “Littles” that they’ll still get the best of his show. J & J have fun catching up with him as they recall days spent at the Post, touch on PTI’s origins, and go way back to some days spent in Baltimore.
