All Things Covered with Patrick Peterson & Bryant McFadden

Patrick Peterson and Bryant McFadden have made a living for their coverage skills on the football field, and while it's a different technique, they're now applying those traits on their new podcast 'All Things Covered'. Instead of wide receivers, tight ends and running backs, they'll be covering sports, entertainment, social issues, personal interests and more. Every Tuesday, the 8-time Pro Bowler Peterson and 2-time Super Bowl champion McFadden will discuss what's happening on the gridiron as well as what intrigues them off the field. Each week they'll welcome a star from the sports and entertainment world to have wide-ranging conversations about what interests them. Guests can include active or former football players but also athletes and influencers from other sports and walks of life. Football is how we know our hosts, but far from what defines Pat and BMac. The name says everything; expect all things to be covered!

  • DeAndre Hopkins on split with Texans, relationship with Kyler Murray, Cardinals win over Seahawks & NFL's social justice efforts

    Fresh off a thrilling Sunday Night Football victory over the Seahawks, Patrick Peterson catches up with Bryant McFadden for Episode 6 of All Things Covered. And not only do we have Pat talking about that epic game, we have his new teammate, DeAndre Hopkins, to join the conversation as well. That comes a little later, but first, what music gets our hosts fired up when it's almost game time (1:00)? Next, where do we even start with Week 7 (4:30)...The end seems like a good spot, as the guys analyze overtime including Kliff Kingsbury's questionable decision to kick on 2nd down plus a huge play from rookie Isaiah Simmons, that P2 just so happened to predict pregame. The viral moment of the night and maybe the year belonged to DK Metcalf chasing down Budda Baker. What was running through Pat's mind as he was trailing the play? And does Budda deserve some slack? Pat locked down Metcalf and recorded another interception, but due to a few beautiful throws and catches from Russell Wilson and Tyler Lockett, it wasn't a perfect night. Hey, it happens to the game's greatest, so stop hating over a play or two. We get an informed breakdown of some more notable moments as well as how this bye week will look different than others. BMac and Pat then cover what else is happening around the NFL (27:00), including a season-ending injury for Odell Beckham Jr, Antonio Brown signing with the Bucs, anonymous Cowboys players calling out their coaches and some questionable criticism of Cam Newton delivered by former QB Jeff Garcia. Then, Nuk Hopkins joins the program (42:30). The guys have a wide-ranging conversation focusing on everything from his dominant days as a defensive back in high school, the NFL's social justice initiatives, his relationship (or lack thereof) with Bill O'Brien and budding relationship with Kyler Murray. DeAndre shares stories from growing up in South Carolina to attending Clemson to Houston and finally Arizona. Don't miss this episode!

  • J.R. Smith on Lakers Bubble title, LeBron's leadership, future for Anthony Davis, favorite pair of Kobe's

    This is not just a football podcast! On Episode 5, we're truly living up to the name 'All Things Covered'. We hit our normal check-ins with Patrick Peterson and the Arizona Cardinals (10:15) and the rest of the NFL (22:30), but also catch up with newly crowned (for the second time) NBA champion J.R. Smith of the Los Angeles Lakers for a wide-ranging conversation (34:00). Hey, athletes aren't perfect. To open the pod, Pat and BMac admit to some mistakes they made early in their careers. There weren't many mistakes from the Cardinals on Monday Night Football, as P2 details the dominant effort vs. the Cowboys which included plenty of celebrating and a breakout performance from Budda Baker. Next up is a daunting matchup with the Seattle Seahawks. Pat shares what makes 2nd-year wide receiver D.K. Metcalf such a difficult cover plus where Russell Wilson ranks among the league's best quarterbacks. The guys also chat about the Dolphins surprising decision to name Tua Tagovailoa their starting QB, plus Le'Veon Bell's fit with the Chiefs. Then, the champ is here! J.R. Smith won a title in the bubble just over a week ago and now joins us to reflect on the Lakers run and his unique role with the team. Did he show up wearing a shirt? Well, you might have to head over to our YouTube channel for that answer. J.R. explains what makes LeBron James such an incredible teammate and how much he puts into his body and his game. All things are covered from Anthony Davis' future with the team, Kyrie Irving's recent comments, leaving Quinn Cook behind and much, much more.

  • Mike Tomlin on Big Ben's future, Steelers' WR success, lack of minority coaches in the NFL 

    Episode 4 of All Things Covered has arrived and it's a special one. Not only did Pat's and Bryant's Lakers capture the NBA title on Sunday (1:00)...Not only did the Cardinals take care of business against the Jets (5:35)...But we also got to have a conversation that doesn't happen very often. The guys are joined by BMac's former head coach, Mike Tomlin, of the currently 4-0 Pittsburgh Steelers (16:30). Before we get to Coach T, there's some catching up to do. P2 was traveling from the East Coast to the West Coast so he didn't get to see a second of Game 6, but obviously got good news once he landed. Are our co-hosts genuine fans or just part of the recent bandwagon? Then it's Cardinals Check-In as we discuss the false positive COVID-19 test that threatened Sunday's game, DeAndre Hopkins continuing to ball out and Chandler Jones' unfortunate injury. Next up is the Cowboys on Monday Night Football. Dak Prescott's injury was devastating to watch and definitely changes the game plan for Arizona heading into their primetime matchup. The new goal: make Andy Dalton beat you. After the break, Mike Tomlin hops on for a wide-ranging conversation on the Steelers' strong start, having Ben Roethlisberger back and how Pittsburgh keeps finding wide receiver gems. Tomlin has been around a lot of great defensive players during his career, but who are the very best? He also has some of the best quotes in the business, as we explore famous Tomlinisms as BMac likes to call them. The focus then shifts to minority coaches in the NFL, addressing changes that need to be made. It's a comfortable version of Coach you don't often get to see or hear, so don't miss it!

  • COVID-19 impacts the NFL, Earl Thomas can't find a job and Bill O'Brien is out of one

    We're back for the 3rd episode of All Things Covered. Co-hosts Patrick Peterson and Bryant McFadden first chop it up regarding jersey swaps in the NFL and memorabilia collections (1:30). How do those jersey swaps you often see (but not this year) come about? And is the criticism that follows fair? We check in on the Cardinals, who just dropped their second straight game after opening the season 2-0 (12:30). Pat gives an in-depth breakdown on his first interception of the season and answers why we haven't seen 8th overall pick Isaiah Simmons on the field very often before looking ahead to their Week 5 matchup vs. the Jets. P2 and BMac then go around the league (27:35), discussing how COVID-19 has impacted things in the past week while also addressing Bill O'Brien's firing on Monday and Earl Thomas being unable to find a new home. The Lakers dropped Game 3 on Sunday, but the guys remain confident (39:30). Now, the NBA has done a good job promoting racial equality and exercising your right to vote---how is the NFL following suit? Lastly, it's '21 Questions' as Pat describes the difficulty in defending Julio Jones (48:30).

  • 'Dangerous' Russell Wilson is cooking, Cardinals suffer 1st loss plus JuJu Smith-Schuster on future with Steelers and playing for Snoop Dogg

    We're back for the 2nd episode of All Things Covered. This week, co-hosts Patrick Peterson and Bryant McFadden cover the Cardinals 1st loss of 2020 and COVID-19 protocols around the league before welcoming Steelers and social media star, JuJu Smith-Schuster. Before all that the guys chop it up about their favorite TV shows and certain personalities within those shows. The Cardinals suffered their first loss of 2020 and as P2 says (with credit to Bruce Arians) "good teams don't lose twice". Arizona matches up with the Panthers next as Pat breaks down what to expect from the likes of DJ Moore and Robby Anderson and how they differ from the problems the Lions presented. AJ Terrell of the Falcons became the 1st player to land on the reserve/COVID-19 list during the season, so how are veterans sending a message to the younger players on their teams? And what type of testing does Pat go through on a daily basis? The guys are thrilled the Lakers are in the NBA Finals but will a 'Bubble Title' hold the same meaning? P2 then explains the reasoning behind #RevengeSZN. It's always good to take a trip down 'Memory Lane' as BMac revisits an epic night on the eve of Super Bowl 43. We dive deeper into Pat's golf hobby within our '21 Questions' segment. Next, it's time to bring on special guest JuJu Smith-Schuster of the Steelers. Big Ben is back and Pittsburgh is 3-0 which has JuJu and Steeler Nation happy. The 4th-year pro talks everything from playing for Coach Snoop Dogg in youth football, the elite level of talent at his high school and nearly playing safety at USC. He also touches on his contract situation, social media approach and interest in the gaming world. What was the best game of his career? Our conversation with JuJU ends on Superlatives like "Best Touchdown Celebration of All Time" and "Toughest CB Matchup". The answers may surprise you!

  • Kyler Murray looks like an early MVP candidate plus Tyrann Mathieu on LSU Days, Chiefs' title defense

    Week 2 just wrapped up in the NFL but it's Week 1 for the All Things Covered podcast. On this debut episode, co-hosts Patrick Peterson and Bryant McFadden catch up on the Cardinals season (8:30), injuries around the league and their beloved Lakers before welcoming a very special guest and former teammate of Pat's, Tyrann Mathieu (36:30). First, meet your hosts beyond the football field. Now that that's settled, the Cardinals are off to a 2-0 start and Kyler Murray is firmly in the MVP discussion. How is P2 and the squad feeling? Plus, let's address it now...Pat's in a contract year and with lots of recent DB deals, there's speculation about his future in the desert. What's his mentality this season? The guys discuss the injuries that were suffered around the league before jumping outside of football into the world of basketball and golf. For this week's 'Memory Lane' segment we revisit the famous moment where Pat struck the Heisman pose in the endzone while at LSU. '21 Questions' features a prompt about which wide receivers he wishes he had the chance to match up against. Then it's time for Honey Badger. Pat and Tyrann go back a long ways and explain their relationship from their time at LSU to Arizona to now. Who's the real DBU? After talking to these guys, it seems like there's no room for debate. The Chiefs are also 2-0, after barely clinging onto an overtime victory vs. the Chargers this past weekend. But can you ever doubt a comeback when you have Patrick Mahomes on your side? Tyrann continues on to discuss Kansas City's title defense and upcoming Monday Night Football matchup vs. Lamar Jackson and the Ravens. He shares the best games of his career before answering Superlatives with us.
