Mario, Joe and I were back in the studio once again to discuss this week's events from around the National Football League. Free agency is coming up and teams are getting ready to start courting some of the biggest names from around the league. One such free agent is Peyton Manning, who is expected to be released by the Indianapolis Colts on March 8.
After the jump, take a look at some of the topics we discussed on this week's edition of the Arizona Birdgang Podcast entitled, "Peyton-Gate".
Right from the get-go, we decided to delay the inevitable and jump right into the Manning talk. With the recent video of him throwing at Duke University, we ask whether or not it was just some college student shooting the video or maybe something more than that.
With that video, Joe is beginning to think that maybe the Colts decide to retain him in the end. Mario and I try to talk him out of that ridiculous notion, despite his decent reasoning.
Will the Cardinals end up trading down in the first round of this year's draft? Is that even a good idea? That was the next topic of discussion.
Mario tries to convince Joe and I that Hines Ward would be a decent option for the Cardinals to consider as a #2 wideout. He also believes that Ward is a far superior option to Early Doucet. What are your thoughts? Would you like to see a potential Hall of Fame receiver in Arizona?
Each of us then give our takes on the whole 'Bountygate' situation involving the New Orleans Saints. The debate gets a little heated (I'm exaggerating, but still). What are your thoughts on the whole debacle which has now become the biggest storyline of the offseason?
With the Hall of Fame Game coming up, will the Cardinals veterans choose to target any of the Saints players as a result of the 'Bountygate' scandal? We were all unanimous with our decisions, but what are your thoughts?
Have you heard about the good deed committed by former Cardinals tight end Ben Patrick? We fill you in on what happened this past week concerning him.
