Yes, yes, the holding call on James Bradberry was a little ticky-tack, and the million-dollar playing surface was hilariously bad. But Chiefs-Eagles was also one of the most impressive, efficient and even Super Bowls ever played, and Conor and Gary found plenty of good things to say about that.

First, an appreciation of Patrick Mahomes’s limitless possibilities playing in-structure, Andy Reid’s uncanny kn...

With Conor out on assignment, Gary instead hosts a show that the sportsbooks made him promise he would never host again. It’s The MMQB Gambling Podcast reunion show, as Jimmy Traina of the SI Media Podcast and Mitch Goldich hop on to go over the logical, interesting and absurd prop bets for Super Bowl LVII between the Chiefs and Eagles.

Here’s how it works: Each panel member reveals a prop bet you should ...

The Super Bowl is coming up. But whatever. There were 53 other big news stories from around the NFL that have nothing to do with the Chiefs of the Eagles.

So Conor and Gary went around the league, starting with the Sean Payton-Broncos marriage. Payton was Denver’s third choice, but keep in mind that the Broncos were probably about Payton’s eighth choice. That said, he is a great coach, but also one who ha...

It was one debacle and one (albeit sloppy) thriller on Championship Sunday, and Conor and Gary are here to discuss how we ended up with a Chiefs-Eagles Super Bowl. And how NFL officiating might have hit a new low in the process.

First, Patrick Mahomes’s exceedingly impressive performance on a bad ankle and with three receivers—how did he make it work? Plus, the Ossai push, Skyy Moore redemption, and the b...

We have our first head-coach hiring of 2023, as the Panthers turn to former Colts coach and first starting quarterback in Carolina franchise history Frank Reich to come in and get the offense moving. Conor and Gary size up the move, the upgrade for Reich himself after escaping Indianapolis, and the mild disappointment that the Steve Wilks-Ben McAdoo marriage has probably run its course.

Then, a look at th...

The NFL’s final four is set, and Conor and Gary are here to talk through just how we arrived here.

First, what in the world is happening to the Cowboys at the end of playoff losses? Is there anything fundamentally wrong with this team, or do they simply keep running into a very good 49ers team in the playoffs? And does, theoretically, handing things over to Sean Payton make things any better?

Conor and Gary are still sifting through the aftermath of *SUPER* Wild-Card Weekend, including what was likely the end of Tom Brady’s run in Tampa. Assuming he comes back, where does it make sense for him to play in 2023 (and, likely, beyond?).

Then, a conversation of three very different outcomes for offensive coordinators. Joe Lombardi, as expected, is out with the Chargers, opening up a chance to work ...

Super Wild-Card Weekend is five-sixths of the way done—nobody likes Monday night playoff football!—and Sunday’s and Saturday’s action brought a nice mixture of excitement and regret. Conor and Gary discuss every bit of it.

The Ravens once again had Joe Burrow’s number (relatively speaking) and came up with some nice solutions on offense, but also a few of the most mind-bogglingly poor decisions by coaches...

It was a relatively quiet Black Monday in the NFL, as only two teams made moves at head coach while three other significant coordinator firings went down.

Conor and Gary delve into the situation in Arizona, where Kliff Kingsbury and Steve Keim are done less than a year after being awarded seven-year extensions. Then a look at Houston, where a head coach went one-and-done for the second consecutive year. A...

That’s a wrap for the regular season, but the entire week was unforgettable across the NFL. Conor and Gary start with an unbelievable opening play in Buffalo, and the Bills pulling it together under unreal circumstances. Also, Conor discusses the time he spent in Western New York last week, as greater Buffalo worked its way through the emotion of Damar Hamlin’s collapse and recovery.

Then, the Packers go ...

Unless you’re a Bucs or Packers fan, everything you feared came to be in Week 17: The Packers are still alive, the Bucs are going to host a playoff game, and Jarrett Stidham is maybe good, perhaps? Conor and Gary are here to figure things out.

First, whether or not anyone should fear the Packers in the event Green Bay gets back to the playoffs, or if it seems like that’s just the stylish thing to say. Plu...

It’s a hybrid show on The MMQB NFL Podcast—not quite a review, not quite a preview, but you get a good meal. Conor and Gary do their best to ignore a horrifically boring slate of Week 16 games and instead look to the bigger pictures around the league. And, to do that, it’s a whirlwind trip division by division. On this show:

• A discussion of the fallout in Denver, where the Broncos’ new ownership group t...

Or, upon fact-check, two crazy nights (or days—but depending on time zone it was night somewhere). Conor and Gary discuss three truly unprecedented moments from the Saturday-Sunday slate of games.

First, a confused discussion of the most stunning finish to a game… maybe ever? The reaction to Jakobi Meyers’s lateral to nowhere with no time left in a tie game, landing in Chandler Jones’s hands for a game-wi...

It’s the small-market show on The MMQB NFL Podcast—or the small-to-mid market show—as Conor and Gary take a trip around the NFL to discuss three QB-centric storylines.

First, a refresher course on Desmond Ridder in advance of his first career start, and what to expect in an Arthur Smith offense for the rookie. Also, a discussion of Mariota-gate after a strange couple of days during which he may or may not...

In Week 14 we learned that, if anything, it’s time to tighten our embrace on the Brock Purdy–led 49ers. Conor and Gary discuss how the seventh-round rookie was far from perfect in his first career start, but he’s looking like he’ll be more than enough for the 49ers to stay in the Super Bowl conversation.

Also, Justin Herbert disproves the dumbest narratives while cracks show in the Dolphins’ offense, the ...

Baker Mayfield’s year-long freefall seemingly continued into December, as he asked for—and was granted—his release from Carolina, and went unclaimed by everyone but the Rams. Conor and Gary discuss the real story behind “only one team claimed him,” where he fits in L.A. for the near-term, and where he might fit elsewhere in the longterm.

Then, a discussion of Titans GM Jon Robinson’s surprise firings, and...

There were some very intriguing matchups in Week 13, but all eyes were on the return of Deshaun Watson in Houston.

Conor and Gary discuss why that was particularly unfortunate, as Watson struggled in his first game back, the broadcast team struggled desperately to articulate why Watson hadn’t played in a meaningful football game in 700 days, and everyone else was treated to one of the worst games in recen...

Deshaun Watson is set to play in his first regular-season game in 700 days on Sunday, when he returns from his 11-game suspension for multiple violations of the personal conduct policy regarding many accounts of sexual assault and harassment from massage therapists
