Pick-6 Podcast: Ranking the free-agent QBs

Will Peyton end up in the Valley of the Sun?(CBSSports.com illustration)

By Will Brinson & Ryan Wilson

The old saying goes something like this: yes, it's officially the NFL offseason but there really is no offseason. The Giants won the Super Bowl a few weeks ago but teams can already franchise would-be free agents, the combine begins this week and free agency the week after.

There are plenty of storylines, and Peyton Manning's future is among the biggest. On the latest Pick-6 Podcast, we talk whether the Arizona Cardinals make the most sense for Manning (he does look dashing in red), and where the other free-agent quarterbacks (Matt Flynn, Kyle Orton, Jason Campbell, Chad Henne) might end up this spring.

The conversation then turns to Big Ben and Todd Haley, and a possible theory for why the Steelers could let Mike Wallace leave as a restricted free agent.

Pick-6 Podcast: One last look at Super Bowl XLVI

Revisiting the week that was in Indianapolis: Super Bowl XLVI. (Ryan Wilson, CBSSports.com)

By Will Brinson & Ryan Wilson

The Giants are champs, the Pats are left wondering where it all went wrong, and the 2011 NFL season is officially in the books.

After a whirlwind week of press conferences, Media Day, red-carpet events and, of course, the Super Bowl, we recap our eight days in sunny, temperate Indianapolis (seriously, the only thing better than the weather was the hospitality). 

We start off by talking about the pass -- you know, the one that Wes Welker couldn't pull in and that probably changed the outcome of the game. We also discuss Tom Brady's suddenly tarnished legacy. Somehow, a three-time Super Bowl winner has gone from hero to goat in 20 minutes of uninspiring football (not helping: his supermodel wife blasting the Pats' receivers for not being able to catch). 

And no conversation of Super Bowl week in Indy would be complete without a mention of Peyton Manning and his future, so we hit that too.

Also worth mentioning: we "worked" the Playboy Party Friday night and the highlight of the evening for Brinson was meeting DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart. We wish we were making this up.

All right, let's get to this...

Pick-6 Podcast: Predicting Peyton's next team

Is Peyton done in Indy? And if so, where where he land in 2012? (Getty Images)

By Will Brinson & Ryan Wilson

On the latest Pick-6 Podcast...

It's the second biggest storyline of the week: where will Peyton Manning play in 2012? That would've been a silly question six months ago but much less so now. The Colts have the first-overall pick in the April draft, owner Jim Irsay has cleaned house, and Manning admitted recently that he had no idea about his future. 

Assuming the Manning era is over in Indianapolis, where his NFL career began in 1998, where might he end up? You'll have to listen to find out.

Other quarterback-related topics on the show: 
  • What should the Ravens do with Joe Flacco -- extend him this offseason or let him play out the final year of his rookie deal?
  • And what about Ravens offensive coordinator Cam Cameron -- should he stay or go?
  • With Alex Smith fresh off a 13-3 season in San Francisco, should the 49ers bring him back, and if so, for how long (they drafted Colin Kaepernick in the second round of the 2011 draft)? 
  • Which names top the list of soon-to-be free-agent wide receivers?
  • And finally, a look ahead to the storylines and matchups for Super Bowl XLVI.
All right, let's get to this...

Pick-6 Podcast: Do Ravens, 49ers Have a Chance?

So, who ya got? (Getty Images/US PRESSWIRE)

By Will Brinson & Ryan Wilson

It's the conference championships and everybody seems to be firmly on two bandwagons: the Patriots and Giants. The former isn't completely surprising -- New England has Tom Brady and Baltimore's Joe Flacco has yet to prove himself -- the latter is unexpected for two reasons.

No. 1: New York was 9-7 in the regular season. Yes, they've had convincing wins against the Falcons and the Packers in back-to-back weeks ... but this leads us to No. 2: San Francisco just stopped the thought-to-be-unstoppable force: Drew Brees and the Saints' offense.

So what gives? Do Baltimore and San Francisco have a shot to get to Indy for the Super Bowl? We talk about that, Steve Spagnuolo joining the Saints, Rob Lowe breaking NFL news and perhaps most importantly: why Joe Flacco is riding a skateboard days before the AFC Championship game.

Talking starts promptly.

Podcast: Laurent Robinson, Film Room Previews

By Will Brinson & Ryan Wilson

We get things started by welcoming Cowboys wide receiver Laurent Robinson to the podcast. It's fair to say that Robinson came out of nowhere this season to catch 54 passes for 858 yards and 11 touchdowns. By the time it was over, he was third on the team in receptions (behind Jason Witten and Dez Bryant) and the team leader in TD grabs.

We talked to him about his nomination for Vizio's Top Value Performer award, if the Cowboys are finally prepared to make the playoffs next year, where Tony Romo ranks among NFL quarterbacks, and if we should all give Jason Garrett a break.

Eye on Football analyst Andy Benoit joins us for the second half of the show to break down the Xs and Os for each divisional matchup, which will hopefully prove more compelling than last week's wild-card games.

Pick-6 Podcast: Steelers D, coaching rumors, MDS

By Will Brinson & Ryan Wilson

The fallout from the Steelers loss to the Broncos continues...

We start the show by discussing if Pittsburgh's defense is again old. (You'll remember, this was a hot topic for the first month or so of the season and then the unit ended the year in a familiar place -- among the NFL's best defenses. Oddly, we didn't hear anything about it until the Steelers' D got Tebow'd Sunday. Then, predictably, the concerns returned.)

We then turn the conversation to whether the Falcons' 2011 draft-day trade for Julio Jones should be considered a whiff, before returning to Steelers-Broncos to revisit James Harrison's hit on Eric Decker. The new safety rules prohibit going high on receivers but there's no mention of going low. Harrison did just that, Decker was knocked out of the game, and many of the fears players voiced when the new rules were implemented were realized in Denver on that play.

Finally, ProFootballTalk.com's Michael David Smith makes his weekly visit to the podcast to talk about all of the aformentioned topics as well as what we can expect in the divisional round of the playoffs.
