They also looked closely at the deal involving the gargantuan Dallas Cowboys Stadium known as “Jerry’s World” and were left wondering if it should be renamed “Arlington Taxpayer World.”
The final NFL piece of news the guys discuss is the New York Giants benching of Eli Manning and question the martyr status that the quarterback has obtain because of the move.
The Men Up North Podcast Fantasy Football League is entering their playoffs and the guys talk about the matchups and their chances of winning their crucial games and ultimately winning the league title. Felipe also gives a pep talk to all fantasy owners who are still playing for something in the next few weeks and gives a few pieces of advice to the fantasy owners who gave up too early.
The guys then take a quick break from fantasy football to discuss the hiring of Herm Edwards to Arizona State and the de-hiring of Greg Schiano at Tennessee.
The show ends with the guys doing rapid fire waiver wire discussion for quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers, and tight ends.
