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.

The Mets Postseason Hopes On Life Support, NL/AL Wild Card Recap, NFL Player Movement, Novak 'Retires' From US Open

September has arrived, new beginnings on the horizon as we sink our teeth into Episode 88 of this latest sports talk party. On deck:

The Mets have fizzled at home where they've been successful, but have thrown their playoff hopes into Flushing Bay. I'll recap the week that was, and analyze if there's still a glimmer of hope? Plus, the AL/NL Wild Card races and the Yankees counting down the days until they secure their first division title in seven years, but shudder at the thought of one of their key players coming back.

Are you ready for some football? We're just days away from the start of the 100th season of the National Football League. I'll catch up on all of the player movement that took place over the weekend. Are the Miami Dolphins tanking? And I'll rehash if we've seen the death of the NFL preseason as we know it.

I'll also chime in on the latest that's going on at the US Open Tennis Tournament, Week 1 of the college football season, and of course, my Hero and Zero of the Week.

Colts QB Andrew Luck has stepped away from game after his sudden retirement on Saturday. There has been a lot of backlash from critics and fans alike. Hear why I think they're crazy and need to keep quiet about Luck walking off into the sunset. I'll share my thoughts about the possible 'death of the NFL preseason' and take a look at the over/under win totals for 2019.

The college football season has kicked off a little earlier than usual, but the full slate begins this weekend. I'll tell you why this collegiate sport compares to recent NBA seasons. That's right. You'll be sure to want to hear this hot take.

NBA Offseason Frenzy Has Begun (AD to Lakers, NY/BK's Pursuit of KD, Draft, Rumors) Blues Win Cup, Yanks Questionable Trade? Mets Bullpen Implosion, Brooks Falls Short at US Open

The NBA Finals just ended, but the offseason is already proving that it's going to be wild and crazy as Episode 76 will provide the following:

The Anthony Davis trade to the Lakers. Who is the winner and loser of this deal?

Should the Knicks or Nets pursue Kevin Durant? What will the Knicks do on draft night?  Plus, the aftermath of Klay Thompson's injury and the future of the Warriors.

I'll recap the Blues historic Stanley Cup run. Does home ice/court/field matter in sports? The NHL Draft is Friday. Why the Devils and Rangers will be forever linked with who they select come Friday night?

The Yankees trade for another right-handed slugger. Why I disagree with the move? And why wasn't a starting pitcher involved instead?

The Mets bullpen continues to be inflammable. The latest debacle of relief futility, plus, their upcoming season defining road trip to Atlanta, Chicago (Cubs) and Philadelphia.

A recap of Gary Woodland's US Open victory over Brooks Koepka.

Jets/Giants/NFL Week 1, Yanks/MLB Pennant Races, Serena Williams/US Open

A new NFL season, baseball pennant races heating up and champions old and new at the US Open are the nuts and bolts of this weeks episode of The JAYREELZ Podcast. The Giants got off to a rough start at home vs. Jacksonville, while the Jets...I'll recap both of the locals and take a trip around the league in another crazy week to start off this NFL campaign. The Yankees have gone 3-3 on their west coast trip through Oakland & Seattle. Their final stop is in Minnesota as they take on the lowly Twins before coming home to complete their regular season home schedule starting on Friday. They currently hold a 2.5 game lead for the first wild card spot. Will they have enough to hold onto the top spot? I'll discuss that and check out the rest of the MLB pennant race landscape as we're down to the final three weeks of the season. I'll also take a look at the road to the mens & womens champions at the US Open this past weekend. Novak Djokovic wins his third title, while 20 year old Naomi Osaka wins her first amidst some controversy surrounding her opponent, Serena Williams. You'll get my thoughts on that and much more on this weeks edition of The JAYREELZ Podcast. (Episode 29)

Yankees/Mets/MLB Pennant Races, College Football, US Open

September ushers in a busy sports month and I'm here to dissect it all on the latest episode of The JAYREELZ Podcast. The Yankees are in the midst of a long west coast trip as they've struggled to gain ground against the division leading Boston Red Sox. Now, the Oakland A's are hot on their tail as they've won the first game of a three game set, which is putting pressure on the Bombers as they maintain the top spot in the wild card race. I'll get into all of the various scenarios regarding the Yankees as they head into the final month of the AL pennant chase. As for the Mets, three things that'll be discussed are as follows. Jacob deGrom's Cy Young candidacy, David Wright's possible return and 1B Peter Alonso not being called up to the big team after a huge year in AAA. Plus, an up to the second recap on the AL & NL pennant races going on in the MLB. I'll take a look back at Week 1 of the college football weekend, where Notre Dame, LSU and Virginia Tech looked dominant in the primetime games the past few nights. Also, an update on the US Open Tennis Tournament as it enters its final week. Where's the NFL talk, you say? Stay tuned as I'll make an announcement on what to expect for my big 2018 NFL season podcast that you won't want to miss. You'll get all of that on this weeks' edition of The JAYREELZ Podcast.

Yankees/Mets/MLB Pennant Races, NFL News & Notes, US Open

Closing out the month of August in grand style on the latest episode of The JAYREELZ Podcast. The Yankees broke out the brooms in Baltimore as they swept a four game series vs. the Orioles. In the process, they've made strides in the AL East as they're currently six games back (five in the loss column) of the first place Boston Red Sox. Can the Yankees continue to climb in the standings and catch their archrivals? I'll break down their chances as the Bombers look to inch closer to the top of their division. The Mets have been playing out the string for the last two months, but there are a couple of developing storylines to look out for. Is Jeff McNeil the second baseman of the future? Will Zack Wheeler continue his dominance over the course of the final five weeks of the season? Is the front office 'sold' on these two players? You'll get my thoughts on this and the rest of the MLB landscape as the pennant races heat up as we approach September. I'll also take a look at both the Jets and Giants as they head into their preseason finales on Thursday. Is it a lock that Sam Darnold has won the starting job as Jets QB? Will Saquon Barkley be ready for the season opener against Jacksonville? Those questions and much more about what's taking place throughout the NFL Training Camps. Plus, tennis's final major of the year, the US Open, Urban Meyer's suspension and college football kicks off this weekend. Lots to get into on this weeks edition of The JAYREELZ Podcast. (Episode 26)
