The 'Not Too High or Too Low' Theme From NFL Week 1, Except? Steelers 'Not Ready For Primetime', Mets 'Not Ready For Postseason' Tirades, MLB Wild Card Latest, Rafa Wins, Serena Loses AGAIN at US Open

I'm in a feisty, awful sports mood, so hide the women and children, because Episode 90 promises to be full of smoke and fire. On deck:

In fourteen NFL cities this morning, either they're setting up the Super Bowl parade route or ready to draft for the number one pick. But there are two excpetions. I'll explain. I'll also go around the league and assess the damage up in Foxborough as the Steelers no showed vs. the Patriots.

The Mets have put their postseason hopes in the trash after a brutal loss in Washington and losing two out of three vs. Philadelphia. Mickey Callaway may have seen his managerial position go out the window with some very questionable moves this week. I have plenty of ammunition on this and I'll also recap the latest in the AL & NL Wild Card races.

Rafael Nadal has inched closer in his quest to catch Roger Federer for most Mens' Grand Slam titles. Serena Williams has now lost back to back Wimbledon and US Open Finals as she's stuck on 23 Grand Slam victories. Hear my take on both legendary figures and what may lie ahead in 2020 now that the Tennis Slams are done for the year.

Plus, my Hero and Zero of the Week.

NFL Bubble Teams After Week 11. Harbaugh's D-Day. NBA News. Miguel Andujar Robbed of AL ROY

As we head into Thanksgiving Week, there are plenty of football dishes to be served up as I’ll place them all around the sports table on this weeks edition of The JAYREELZ Podcast. It was another wacky, zany week in the NFL as we saw some separation between the pretenders and contenders. Teams that were already on the bubble (i.e. PHI, ATL, GB, JAX, even WSH, perhaps?) have put their seasons on the brink. Get my take on all that happened in Week 11, with a look to the Thanksgiving games and Week 12, plus, are the Saints/Rams and Chiefs shoo-ins for the Super Bowl? The College Football season is slowly coming to an end, but not before the highly anticipated matchup between Michigan vs. Ohio State. How big of a game is this for UM coach, Jim Harbaugh? What does this mean for his coaching legacy at Ann Arbor? I’ll dig in to that, and, get into what’s happening with the Golden State Warriors? Is Carmelo Anthony’s NBA career done? And why Miguel Andujar was robbed of the AL Rookie of the Year? It’s a sports feast that you won’t want to miss on the latest episode of The JAYREELZ Podcast. (Episode 40)

A jam packed show is on tap as I deliver all of what’s going on in the world of sports on this weeks edition of The JAYREELZ Podcast. The Jets season has now been put to rest after their deplorable effort against the lowly Buffalo Bills. The hot seat is burning as coach Todd Bowles is walking the plank to his potential departure, but there is a caveat? I’ll explain in great detail why leaving now doesn’t make sense, but the REAL reason he still may be coach of this team in 2019? I’ll go around the league to discuss another wild week in the NFL as the playoff picture starts to take a little shape ten weeks into the season. There’s plenty of NBA news to delve into, including Jimmy Butler moving on to Philadelphia, Carmelo Anthony jettisoned from Houston? Tyson Chandler igniting the Lakers to .500, also what’s going on with the Celtics? Plus, some news and notes on the NHL with the answer to an intriguing trivia question, Duke’s Big 3 with Zion Williamson leading the charge and why it’s WAY too early to mention an undefeated season. I’ll sprinkle in a few more things to chat about as well on this weeks’ episode of The JAYREELZ Podcast. (Episode 39)

The clocks are turned back. The days are shorter. Fall is in full swing and November has arrived as I deliver all that’s going on in the world of sports on this weeks edition of The JAYREELZ Podcast. It’s time to put the proverbial end of the 2018 NY Jets as they weren’t able to take flight down in South Florida vs. the Dolphins. There’s lots of blame to go around after their third straight loss drops them to 3-6 on the season. Is it time for Todd Bowles to be fired? Should Sam Darnold ride the pine after his four interception performance? I’ll answer those questions and go around the league in Week 8 to highlight the Saints stopping the Rams unbeaten season, players wanting to play in Oakland, says coach Jon Gruden? Also, the Texans march to a division title, the Steelers death knell to their archrivals and can the Falcons get back in the NFC playoff picture? I’ll analyze the comments made by new Mets GM Brodie Van Wagenen and what does it mean for the Amazins’ moving forward? Why I disapprove the Yankees bringing back Brett Gardner? Plus, the latest in the NHL (the Islanders hot streak, Cup hangover in Washington and Vegas?), the NBA (Jimmy Butler needs to go, Luke Walton on the hot seat in LA?) and thoughts about Floyd Mayweather’s upcoming fight in Japan? That’s right! All of that, plus much more, on this weeks episode of The JAYREELZ Podcast. (Episode 38)

The Jets and Sam Darnold continue to impress as they’ve made it to .500 on the season with a win over Indianapolis. Meanwhile on the other side of the building, the hopes for this Giants season has gone down the drain as they suffer their fifth loss in six games at the hands of the Eagles. Hear my takes on both teams, as well as, recapping all that went down in Week 6 of the NFL, including the Steelers last second win in Cincinnati, the Jaguars D rocked in Dallas and the only remaining undefeated team in the league. The Yankees say goodbye to the 2018 season as they lose in four games to the Red Sox. What will it take for the Yanks to get over the hump? What changes can they expect? Will they focus on a starting pitcher? Or the rumors of Manny Machado will start to echo throughout baseball? Lots of answers that I’ll try to unpack, plus my thoughts on the AL & NLCS to date.

A busy sports October is in full swing. I’m here to dissect it all on this weeks edition of The JAYREELZ Podcast. The Yankees have taken the momentum of the ALDS and the home field advantage versus their adversaries in Boston. I’ll point out what it’ll take to have the Bombers not go back to Beantown for a Game 5 and what needs to be done if you’re the Red Sox to extend the series to advance to the ALCS. Not to mention, a brief thought on the fans that invade the Stadium and the influence (good and bad) that they have during these playoff games. Plus, the rest of the MLB playoff landscape. The Jets get back in the win column as they punished the Denver Broncos on the ground, while the Giants leave Carolina in heartbreak as they lose on a last second 63 yard field goal. There’s lot to discuss about this Giant team, including Odell Beckham’s comments about the G-Men and a word on why the Giants need to push the offense to bigger heights, similar to what they did in yesterdays’ game. I’ll put a cap on Week 5 of the NFL with a look to Week 6. Plus, the latest in college football, the NHL ‘code’ (i.e. fighting, sending a message and discipline of their players in regards to what happened in the preseason.) and a brief mention of the MMA fight on Saturday and the aftermath of the Conor McGregor match. All of that, and then some on this weeks episode of The JAYREELZ Podcast. (Episode 33)
