Super Bowl LIII Recap, Rams Ineptitude, Edelman a HOF'er? (Really?), AD, KP, Kyrie & the NBA Trade Deadline. Harper & Machado Destination?

A champion has been crowned in the NFL, NBA players are ruling the roost and are we close to a decision on where Bryce Harper and Manny Machado are headed? Those are some of the topics I’ll discuss on this weeks edition of The JAYREELZ Podcast. The NFL season went out on a whimper as the Patriots defeat the Rams in the lowest scoring game in Super Bowl history. I’ll recap the good (not much), the bad (quite a bit) and the ugly (i.e. Sean McVay and Jared Goff) as this was a game to forget. A lot of talk has been made about Super Bowl MVP, Julian Edelman on whether he’s bound for the Pro Football Hall of Fame. I touched on this two weeks ago (Episode 49) and I’ll revisit this again as to why he is NOT going to Canton. I’ll wrap up my Super Bowl thoughts on the commercials, the halftime performance and the who IS going to Canton for the Class of 2019. The NBA had a fascinating week of the court with all of the buzz generated by Anthony Davis (trade request), Kristaps Porzingis (trade request granted) and Kyrie Irving (trade in the works?) as we’re just a few days from the trade deadline. Players are more in control of their fate than ever! I have tons to say about this, so you’ll get an unfiltered view on why this is bad for the league? Lastly, have we gotten any closer as to where the top two superstars on the free agent market (Bryce Harper & Manny Machado) will end up? There have been talks out in San Diego as the Padres throw their hat in the ring, but at least for one player, he may have come to a decision as to where he’ll go. You’ll get all of that, and a little more on this weeks episode of The JAYREELZ Podcast. (Episode 52)

Super Bowl Preview, MLB Hall of Famers/NFL HOF's Up Next, Who Cares About The Pro Bowl/NBA/NHL All-Star Games?

Let all of the hype begin as Super Bowl Week has arrived. Delivering chock full of nuggets, storylines and much more on this weeks edition of The JAYREELZ Podcast. Both teams have descended to the ATL where over the next six days, you’ll be up to your ears in everything dealing with the big game on Sunday. Don’t despair because here is your early take on what the key matchups will be, do the Patriots have a significant advantage because of their experience? Will the master Bill Belichick school the student Sean McVay? What will be the legacies for both Belichick and Tom Brady, win or lose? What about McVay? And finally, my prediction as to who will hoist the Vince Lombardi Trophy as this years champion in the NFL! There are actually other things going on besides sports biggest event. I’ll get into the freshly minted inductees into the Baseball Hall of Fame. Why we’ll NEVER see the likes of Mariano Rivera EVER? My feelings on why Mike Mussina is NOT a Hall of Famer? And while I’m on the subject, I’ll go through the list of finalists for the Pro Football Hall of Fame, which will be announced later in the week and share who’s a lock and who’s not worthy? Plus, you have the three All-Star Games over the next three weeks for the NFL, NHL and NBA. Does it matter? Does anyone really care? And with Anthony Davis requesting a trade out of New Orleans, what teams will be involved? Will it happen before the trade deadline on February 7th? You’ll get my opinion on those questions, and lots more on this weeks episode of The JAYREELZ Podcast. (Episode 51)

Super Bowl 53 Matchup, Saints Robbed?, Chiefs Aftermath, Nets/Islanders Hottest NY Teams, MLB News

The stage is set for the big game in two weeks. I’m here to provide how both the Los Angeles Rams and New England Patriots got there, plus all of the latest in the world of sports on this edition of The JAYREELZ Podcast. The NFL hit a grand slam on Championship Sunday with epic overtime games in New Orleans & Kansas City. The Rams were able to eke out an win, but not without controversy. The officials admittedly blew a key third down call late in the game that will have lasting effects throughout the offseason. You’ll get my take on why that call wasn’t the reason the Saints lost and why pass interference calls should NOT be reviewed. The Patriots do it again. They’ve made their fourth Super Bowl in five years, five in eight and nine in eighteen during the Brady/Belichick era. I’ll share what put the Pats over the top and how Brady’s magic and Belichick’s mastery sealed another trip to the Super Bowl. Also, what this loss means for the Chiefs moving forward? I’ll get into a few of the storylines heading into the week before the Super Bowl and shed some early light on the game. There are some other sports news to touch on including the hottest teams not just in New York, but in the NBA & NHL with the Nets and Islanders, respectively. Plus, an update of what’s going on in the MLB Hot Stove and much more on this weeks episode of The JAYREELZ Podcast.  (Episode 50)

NFL's Final Four, Jets New Coach, Manny Machado Decision?, Lakers & Celtics Struggles

We’re starting to feel the winter chill throughout the nation, but I'll keep you warm with all that’s going on in the world of sports on this weeks edition of The JAYREELZ Podcast. The NFL postseason is down to the final four. It wasn’t the best of weekends the NFL had in the divisional round. I’ll review all four games, preview the Conference Title Games with the Rams vs. Saints, followed by Patriots vs. Chiefs and what would be the best Super Bowl matchup come February 3rd in Atlanta. I’ll also chime in on the Jets new coaching hire, Adam Gase, the rest of the NFL teams who have employed new head coaches over the past week and the latest in the Antonio Brown saga in Pittsburgh. I’ll briefly touch on the National Championship Game demolition in College Football last week as Clemson smacked Alabama to win their second title in three years. I’ll also touch on news regarding Manny Machado as there is an offer on the table from the Chicago White Sox. Is he stalling, waiting for the Yankees to swoop in and make an offer? What’s going on with Bryce Harper as well? Plus, the Mets and Yankees continue to fine tune their rosters with somewhat surprising moves. I’ll close with what’s happening with the Lakers and Celtics in the NBA. Both teams have hit the skids, but for different reasons altogether. I’ll have all of that, and some final words regarding some tweaks that’ll take place with the podcast on this weeks episode of The JAYREELZ Podcast. (Episode 49)
