The stage is set for Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans after a pair of conference championship games that saw Colin Kaepernick and the 49ers defeat the Atlanta Falcons 28-24, and a Ray Lewis led Baltimore Ravens squad avenge their loss from a year ago to defeat the New England Patriots 28-13. To discuss the big matchup in New Orleans between the Ravens and 49ers Rich dials up Hall of Fame defensive back Rod Woodson, who was a member of that 2000 Baltimore Ravens squad that won Super Bowl XXXV. Rich and Rod discuss the Kaepernick factor and how his speed and ability to throw effectively may prove to be a challenge for Ray Lewis, Ed Reed and the Ravens defense. Woodson also discusses the emergence of Joe Flacco down the stretch and the troubles he presents Patrick Willis and that vaunted 49er defense.
"Last Call: With Carson Daly" brought their show to NFL Network studios this week to interview Rich for an upcoming episode of their show, so afterwards we sat down Carson to chat and find out what he's been up to since his last visit to the REP one year ago. Carson is one of the all-time good guys in the business and has found great success with his hit NBC show "The Voice", which as you'll find out the upcoming season of the show has a bizarre tie-in to the Manti Te'o girlfriend hoax that’s unfolded in recent days.
And finally the show rounds out with the highly anticipated "Guest Who" segment that podcast producer Chris Law has had in the works for a few weeks. We can't tell you who the mystery guest is here, but just know that you'll thoroughly enjoy listening to a befuddled Rich Eisen as Law and fellow producer Chris Brockman enjoy a laugh.
Stay tuned next week for our big "Rich Eisen Super Bowl Special Podcast" featuring an all star guest list as well as some of the key players who will be participating in Super Bowl XLVII on February 3, in New Orleans.
