We kick things off tonight with Gary giving his thoughts on the Pro-Bowl. Then we discuss the NFL News that has been going around since the last time we did a podcast.
We discuss Calvin Johnson’s decision to retire and if it reflects at all on the Detroit Lions organization. We also talk about Justin Tuck retiring, the San Diego Chargers decision to stay in San Diego for 2016, the new Thursday Night Football contract, more concussions reported this season than in previous years, Tyrod Taylor and Kirk Cousins wanting better contracts, and more.
Then we do our Superbowl 50 Preview Part 1.
We look at the powerful Carolina Panthers offense going against the best defense in the NFL in the Denver Broncos. Who has the edge? How can the Broncos stop Cam Newton? Will the Panther run game continue to be dominate? We try to answer these questions as best we can.
We end the podcast by giving our thoughts on the controversial comments made by Cam Newton that had racial overtones and sent the media into a tizzy.

Sean Garmer: Studied Journalism at the University of North Texas and hopes to one day be able to return to finish his degree. Born in Arkansas, his favorite college team is the Arkansas Razorbacks, but all of his professional loves come from the Dallas-Fort Worth area, where he spent 20 years of his life. Sean’s first love is soccer, which began from having an entire latino side of the family that watched the sport. It then grew into him playing soccer all the way into high school and college. He was also able to do color commentary for the University of North Texas Women’s soccer team as well. He then transitioned that into several writing gigs on various websites, including being paid to cover every game in several World Cups. Sean is an avid FC Dallas supporter and has grown to love MLS above all other soccer leagues. His second sport is a tie between American Football and Basketball. Although Sean is a diehard Cowboys and Mavericks fan, respectively, he also tries to keep up with other sports as much as he can.
Gary Vaughan: is a native of North Texas. He is also a graduate of the University of North Texas with aspirations of a higher level of education. Like a majority of Texans, football is his sports passion. Ironically, his passion for the game sparked from his love of Madden 98. From that point on, he has poured hours into studying NFL history and game film. Gary is a student of the game and is a die hard Dallas Cowboys fan. His second sport is hockey, followed up by the rest of the American sports scene.
Randy Isbelle: is a New York American sports fan stuck in the Pacific Northwest. Randy is a former writer for a few sports websites, and he was also a co-founder of the Coast 2 Coast Sports Report podcast. He now splits his time between watching sports, playing video games and being a father.
