Colts Conundrum, Ravens Revenge, Steelers Stinker & The Rest Of NFL Wild Card Weekend, 'Bama-Buckeye Preview, NBA Confronts COVID, Mets/Lindor: Series Bound? NHL Raises Curtain

Settling into the New Year while I dissect the sports universe as Episode 173 is ready for takeoff! On deck: (3:23) Not the wildest of Wild Card weekends that the NFL was hoping for, but tons to delve into on the Colts unable to capitalize in Buffalo, the Rams ‘D’ thwart Russell Wilson and the Seahawks, Washington QB Taylor Heinecke upstages the Buccaneers victory. The Ravens get some payback, the Saints were slow, yet methodical in the second half vs. the Bears (also Nickolodeon, NFL? Really?) And the debacle in Pittsburgh as they dug themselves a big hole that they couldn’t get out of vs. the Browns. I’ll also take the temperature of the Steeler organization after another putrid home playoff performance. A State of the Union, if you will on their free agents, Big Ben close to the end? Coach Mike Tomlin’s postseason record and more, that any Steeler fan wouldn’t want to miss. Plus, my Divisional Round preview with predictions, coaching news and Deshaun Watson’s frustration in Houston. (59:49) A preview of tonight’s National Title Game between Ohio State vs. Alabama. What will it take for the Buckeyes to upset the Crimson Tide? Also, an apology to Heisman Trophy winner, DeVonta Smith. (1:02:51) The NBA confronting with coronavirus running through the league. Is there a possible pause to the season forthcoming? The Clippers latest collapse and LaMelo Ball’s record setting achievement. (1:08:24) Breaking down the NCAA’s decision to keep the entire March Madness tournament in the state of Indiana. (1:10:25) An NHL season begins on Wednesday with news on the realigned divisions being sponsored. A retirement from a Stanley Cup winning goaltender and a thought of who I feel will be in the Stanley Cup Final? (1:17:15) The Mets trade for star infielder, Francisco Lindor. Does that make the Mets Series contenders? Is he the final piece to the puzzle? Kyle Schwarber finds a home and what happened in LA with the Angels and their former clubhouse attendant, providing doctored baseballs to opposing pitchers? (1:24:07) Lastly, my Hero and Zero of the Week.
