Hall of Famer Marshall Faulk and Super Bowl XXV MVP Ottis Anderson join Joe for Day two in Tampa! Hear Faulk’s take on the Rams acquiring Stafford and his experience vs both Tom Brady AND Andy Reid in the playoffs nearly 20 years ago, while Anderson talks about his Super Bowl MVP performance vs Buffalo in 1990 and makes his own case as to why he deserves a gold jacket! Joe’s monologue is on the difference a healthy Sammy Watkins makes, while his Final Word tackles who he thinks should be enshrined in Canton this weekend, so don’t miss this Radio Row edition of Ceraulo Sports Talk!
Football is BACK, and Ceraulo Sports Talk is all over the NFL’s return, Odell’s stinky kinks, and first dates gone terribly wrong!
PLUS – it’s a special two-guest episode! Jarrett Bailey joins the show again and makes a couple bets with Joe (including a rather risque picture of Joe potentially getting leaked if Jarrett’s Steelers beat Joe’s Giants Monday night). Then, Brandon Lang joins the show to talk week one betting lines, a dark horse MVP worth betting on and how much easier getting laid becomes once you’ve been portrayed by Matthew McConaughey on the big screen.
All this, plus Joe’s NFL playoff predictions in his final word, only on Ceraulo Sports Talk!
Nothing has been more irritating than the constant criticism of Eli Manning for the struggles of the New York Giants in recent years.
