EOF Podcast: Seahawks-Packers preview, Jim Irsay suspended
The Eye on Football Podcast previews the Seahawks-Packers matchup and takes a look at the various NFL news percolating this week, including Jim Irsay's suspension, J.J. Watt's contract and Derek Carr starting for the Raiders.
Ryan Wilson and I take a look at the matchup, discussing whether Jordy Nelson can beat Richard Sherman in coverage this time around (he did not in 2012) and whether the Packers offensive line can protect Aaron Rodgers this time around (he was sacked eight times in the first half in 2012).
Additionally we talk about the news of the day/week in what's been a crazy lead up to the NFL season.
For starters: Jim Irsay's suspension. Was six games fair for the Colts owner? Is $500,000 too little relative to what a billionaire is worth? Should the NFL punish the Colts roster for Irsay's actions?
And finally, Derek Carr was named the starter in Oakland -- can he save the jobs of Reggie McKenzie and Dennis Allen?
