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.

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.

Bryce's DestinationGate, Zion's SneakerGate, Robert Kraft's SexGate. Plus, NHL Trade Deadline & NBA Roundup

I’m closing out the month of February in strong fashion as I deliver all that’s happening in the world of sports on this edition of The JAYREELZ Podcast. Manny Machado has finally found a home in San Diego. With all players reporting for spring training, there is still one big fish out there not signed to a major league contract. Will Bryce Harper come to agreement with the Phillies who are hot on his trail? Or possibly the Dodgers, as they’ve stepped into the mix to procure the former MVP? You’ll get my up to the minute analysis on where this road may lead to and why I believe Philadelphia shouldn’t be a destination for the former National. All of the talk last week in college basketball was the injury to Duke’s ballyhooed freshman, Zion Williamson. It sparked a national debate on whether he should sit out for the rest of the season and enter the NBA Draft, how college players should be paid, etc. But I’ll give you the real reason why this is a story at all and I’ll point the finger as to who is the culprit in all of this mess. Then you have the developments of Friday’s charge to New England Patriots owner, Robert Kraft of soliciting a prostitute in a massage parlor in Florida. There’s still more to come with this story, but I’ll share firsthand why we shouldn’t jump the gun on prosecuting Mr. Kraft, but also should’ve known that this firestorm was going to come whether or not he’s guilty. Plus, the latest on the NHL trade deadline, a trip around the NBA and much more on this weeks episode of The JAYREELZ Podcast. (Episode 56)

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)

As we get closer to closing out 2018, the sports world continues to shine as we get into all of what it has to offer on this weeks edition of The JAYREELZ Podcast. NFL Week 15 surely didn’t mirror all of the excitement and drama as it did the week before, but you had thrilling finishes in Kansas City, Pittsburgh and Los Angeles which impacted playoff implications throughout the league. I’ll recap the meaningful games for teams jockeying for seeding and position in both conferences, including the Steelers slaying the Patriots dragon to keep their lead in the AFC North for another week. I’ll touch on the Jets and Giants as both teams suffer losses as they close out the string in this lost season. The Mets have added a catcher, but not the one that’s been rumored over the past few weeks. I’ll share my thoughts on who the Amazin’s brought in and what could possibly be their next move. I’ll get into a little NBA news and some other sports nuggets on this weeks episode of The JAYREELZ Podcast. (Episode 45)
