The Go Route Podcast Episode 5: What If J.J. Abrams Rebooted the NFL?

Josh ZerkleChief Writer IIIMay 21, 2013

We're back. 

Fellow NFL Lead Writer Aaron Nagler and I climb back behind the mics to bring our NFL podcast out of hiatus. The Go Route Podcast returns after a 362-day layoff to drop some SMOKING HOT FOOTBALL TAKES on all of the happenings across the NFL. 

Among the litany of topics covered in this week's show:

  • Chargers rookie Keenan Allen tweeting out an image of himself...wearing a Raiders hat. 
  • Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll's remarks on Bruce Irvin's PED suspension.
  • How Calvin Johnson's record-breaking 2012 season became even more impressive. 
  • Our picks for dark-horse teams to make the playoffs. 

We also riff on our topic du semaine: What would a J.J. Abrams NFL look like? Who would serve as the commissioner in such a universe? How would his vision compare to the modern-day NFL? Just thinking about it, I can almost feel the lens flares burning out my eyeballs already. 

Aaron and I tackle these topics and more in our second incarnation of The Go Route Podcast. Check out our podcast here, because we'll only be making it better in the coming weeks, including video formatting and more. Enjoy it and leave your own thoughts on our topics in the comments below. And this time...thanks for listening.
