Episode #65 features an extended visit the Face of the NFL Network, Rich Eisen, who just returned with Shek from the NFL Draft in Manhattan. The fellas break down which teams succeeded and failed, and also debate the folly of attempting to determine “winners” and “losers” in the speculative exercise of drafting. Rank and Shek are also reunited with producer Necktie Milner and by resident Dolphins fan, Handsome Hank for thoughts on Miami taking Ryan Tannehill, then discuss John Harbaugh’s critique of the stained Pats’ dynasty. We hope you’ll enjoy it… but there’s no saying for sure ’til you give it a listen. [audio http://traffic.libsyn.com/dameshek/ddfp_65.mp3] Subscribe to The DDFP on iTunes.

[audio http://traffic.libsyn.com/dameshek/ddfp_aug19.mp3 ] On the heels of Eli Manning’s claim that he considers himself among the game’s elite passers, Dave and Rank kibbitz with NFL.com’s Elliot “Pretty Boy” Harrison to break down Brady, Rodgers, Roethlisberger, Brees, Rivers, Vick, Romo, Schaub and — of course — the Brothers Manning. In addition, Dave presents the Tuck Rule Edition of the “N-if-L.” If this episode was a intergalactic bounty hunter, it’d be Boba Fett. Subscribe to the Dave Dameshek Football Program on iTunes

The fellas also review their less-than-stellar trip to the Pro Football Hall of Fame with new (interim) producer, Necktie Dye; plus, a discussion of what the best matchup for the first regular season game would be.
