NFL Week 2 Storylines (Officiating, Bold Two Pt. Conversions) Big Ben Done for '19, Mets On Life Support AGAIN, Pete Alonso's Ascent, MLB Wild Card Update, US Men's Basketball Disappointment

From last weeks' angry podcast to a somber one this week on Episode 91. On deck is the following:

Another wild and wacky NFL as Week 2 delivers lots of juicy storylines, including: The officiating throughout the league (another bad call for the Saints, Broncos hit with penalties in loss to the Bears) Losses at QB in New Orleans and Pittsburgh. Bold two point conversions. Ben Roethlisberger done for the season. How will his backup, Mason Rudolph, fare in getting a ton of the playing time? And much more as I go around the league.

The Mets playoff hopes are hanging by a thread with 13 games to go as they trail by four games in the NL Wild Card race. Can they pull off a miracle and make it to October? I'll explain why Pete Alonso is the future of this team and what should've been for a former Met who received early accolades, but never panned out to what we thought he'd become. Also, an up to the minute AL/NL Wild Card update and the hunt for baseballs' best record is on the line between the Yankees, Astros and Dodgers.

The US Men's Basketball team took a big hit in the FIBA World Cup as they finished in seventh place for the tournament. Is this cause for concern with the Olympics slated for next summer? I'll get into that, plus my Hero and Zero of the Week.

NCAA's Sweet 16/Duke Escapes, Gronk Retires, Big Ben Awaits, MLB Over/Unders, deGrom's Contract Clock, NBA & NHL Homestretch

It’s officially spring! The Madness is in full effect! A baseball season is about to begin! And we’re into the homestretch of the NBA & NHL regular season. Chock full of sports chatter for your earbuds as I deliver all of that and then some on the latest edition of The JAYREELZ Podcast. We are down to sixteen teams in the NCAA Tournament. I’ll recap what took place over the weekend, including a miraculous outcome for the Duke Blue Devils, and review what lies ahead as we set our sights on the Final Four. I’ll touch on a couple of NFL tidbits. The retirement of Rob Gronkowski. Is he a Hall of Famer? What’s on the mind of Ben Roethlisberger as he has some questions to answer regarding his relationship with two of his former teammates in particular. And a couple of free agent signings throughout the league. The MLB season has begun (with the two games in Japan where Seattle sweeps Oakland), but it commences state side on Thursday as we usher in another year of baseball. I’ll set the table as I delve into the over/under win totals, the status of Jacob deGrom’s contract as Opening Day is just a few days away and tip my hand on the MLB Preview that I’ll have in store later in the week. I’ll also get into these last couple of weeks with the Celtics and Islanders as they head into the homestretch of a long, grueling season. Closing out the first quarter of 2019 in grand style with nothing but informative, entertaining and credible sports talk on this weeks episode of The JAYREELZ Podcast. (Episode 60)
