Tim is back from a week of vacation to join Steve and talk football. In his absence last week, Steve and guest host George Plaven finished 2-1-2. This week they recap their pushes and keep trying for that evasive perfect week.
With Tim on vacation, Steve and George pick the week’s winners and losers.
The boys went 2-2-1 last week — as middling as you can get. They try to improve with this week’s picks while also talking a bit about the state of the game and the continuing controversy about when to kneel and how to protest.
Tim Trainor and Steve Hill are back after a winning week, and staring at a slate of games that makes them feel pretty good (except for Dalvin Cook’s poorly-timed injury.) Can they capture that critical 5-0 perfect score? Listen along as you watch this weekend.
Due to an equipment failure, our weekly NFL podcast cut out on us about 25 minutes in. But it’s not like there was anything to talk about in the NFL this week right? Sorry about the error, but we have a discussion with Tim Trainor, Steve Hill and East Oregonian sports reporter Eric Singer in here, as well as our picks for next week: Carolina (+9), Atlanta (-8), San Francisco (+7), Denver (-2.5) and Indianapolis (+13).
We’ll be back, in our entirety, next week. Thanks as always for listening.
