10 Essential NFL Podcasts

Looking for some great NFL podcasts to help keep you abreast of all the latest news, previews, reviews, and analysis? Here a list of the best NFL podcasts for every NFL fanatic updated and ready to go for the NFL season.

Note: We’ve intentionally left out all Fantasy Football specific podcasts as they will be part of a separate post.

Ross Tucker Football Podcast

Screen Shot 2013-07-19 at 11.09.30 AM

The former host of the ESPN Football Today Podcast left ESPN in 2013 and now has his own podcast under his own name. Tucker provides solid insight from his years of playing offensive line and is a very entertaining listen. What sets his show apart from other is they aren’t just the same news stories and typical media talking points. While he does deliver an opinion on NFL current events, Tucker also frequently brings in people to talk about topics you rarely, if ever, get talked about in the media, like what is it like to be on an NFL practice squad, the life an an NFL backup QB, and real deep-dive information like the difference between the X, Y, and Z receivers. The podcast usually airs 2 or 3 times per week during the off-season and weekdays during the NFL season. For my money, it’s not only the best NFL podcast, it some of the best NFL content being produced today.

The Rich Eisen Podcast (Weekly)

sshot-2

The host of NFL Network’s Total Access and NFL GameDay Morning delivers his own weekly podcast where he interviews current and former NFL players, coaches, and the occasional celebrity. He and his producers talk mainly NFL with some occasional pop culture. Eisen’s humor and personality make this podcast a real winner. Typically a once per week podcast, he’ll eventually put out multiple editions in select weeks. New episodes are released year round and much more pop-culture heavy in the off-season.

sshot-5A daily podcast hosted by Robert Flores (formerly hosted by NFL Offensive lineman Ross Tucker) who is frequently joined by other NFL experts and PodVader of ESPN Fantasy Focus podcast fame.

The Dave Dameshek Football Program (Weekly)

nfl-podcasts-1A smart, humorous, cock-eyed look at the NFL from the fan’s point of view. Dave is joined each week by NFL.com’s Adam Rank. Entertaining without being over the top. This one’s probably suitable for work, but it might be best to proceed with some caution. New podcasts come out at least once per week and usually more like  twice per week.

Around the League Podcast

nfl-atl Another NFL.com produced offering featuring Gregg Rosenthal, Dan Hanzus, Marc Sessler, Chris Wesseling, and Kevin Patra. They discuss the topics of the day in the NFL several times per week, and often with a dash of fun and humor.

The Coaches Podcast (Weekly)sshot-3

Former NFL Head Coaches Brian Billick and Dennis Green break down games and discuss the weeks hottest topics from around the NFL. New episodes are released during the NFL season, but the off-season is quiet.

NFL Rant and Raves (Twice per Week)

nfl-podcast-8 Steven Miranda and Jeff Ellis rant and rave about players, coaches, games, play calls, rules, plays and all things NFL. And, yes, they really do rant and rave. They are well seasoned podcasters with over 400 shows to date, but the back and forth boisterousness and high energy may not be for everyone. They go all year long with less frequent releases in the off-season.

nfl-podcast-10The M&M Podcast features Michael Irvin and Marshall Faulk of the NFL Network. Formerly known as the No Huddle podcast, this weekly in-season only podcasts sees the NFL Hall of Famers discussing the latest NFL topics.

    My favorite is ESPN Football Today. It’s funny, they interact with fans and provide good analysis of games, players as well as talk NFL hot topics. Fridays are essential where they make picks of up-coming games. The host, Flores can also give some good fantasy advice as he hosts Fantasy Football Now on ESPN2 Sunday mornings. I really like Rich Eisen on NFL Network but not a fan of his podcast…tries too hard and too wrapped up with celebs that have nothing to do with football. In my opinion, Ross Tucker is just too boring. Could never get into it.
