Holt Brothers on the GSOT, Holt House Battles, Honoring Mom Through Service

Watch Second Acts on YouTube:  https://bit.ly/3ikkR2Q Follow Roman Harper on Instagram: @Harp_41 Follow Peanut Tillman on Instagram: @peanuttillman Ep #29: It’s a first on the NFL Players: Second Acts pod - a duo! The brothers’ Holt: Rams legend Torry Holt and his brother Terrence, who was also a six-year NFL veteran, join Peanut and Roman on the pod. It’s fitting that they’re on together since they've remained attached at the hip for much of their lives. They played at the same college - North Carolina St. - though they missed being teammates by one season. They competed against each other in many hard-fought battles in the six years their NFL careers overlapped. Today, they’re partners in the many business ventures of their company Holt Brothers Inc. In this episode, they talk about being the rare brother combo to make it to the NFL, the (friendly) sibling rivalry that bonded them and fueled their fires to make it to the league. Torry made a name for himself as one of the key cogs in the “Greatest Show on Turf” Rams offense that won Super Bowl XXXIV, and he talks about the intangibles that made them great. When he retired it was younger brother Terrence who gave Torry the blueprint on how to navigate the transition, which eventually led them to becoming business partners.

Is it a Super Bowl or Bust campaign for the Bengals? STOCK UP. STOCK DOWN … team by team in the NFC South, and the preseason NFL All-Breakout team for 2023

Today on NFL Total Access The Podcast, we welcome back former NFL quarterback David Carr. We kick off today's discussion with a focus on the Cincinnati Bengals' 2023 campaign. The question looms: Is this a Super Bowl or Bust season for the Bengals? As expectations rise for this young and talented team, we'll explore the challenges they face on their quest for football's ultimate prize. Next up, our attention turns to the Buffalo Bills, a team on the cusp of greatness. The Bills have consistently been a force to be reckoned with but have yet to secure a Super Bowl victory. David Carr and I discuss whether this season represents a last chance for the Bills to prove their credentials or if they will forever be remembered as the best team never to hoist the Lombardi Trophy. Shifting gears to the NFC South, we evaluate stock trends. From rising contenders to potential disappointments, David Carr breaks down the latest developments in the division. The spotlight then falls on the New Orleans Saints as the team to beat in the NFC South. As the Saints reload and regroup, the analysis dives into the factors that make them the front-runners in the divisional race. Turning to Tampa Bay, the question arises: Does Baker Mayfield or Kyle Trask hold the key to success for the Buccaneers? Simultaneously, the Falcons' decision not to draft a quarterback raises questions about the faith they've placed in Desmond Ridder. We close the show with the preseason NFL All-Breakout team for 2023. Additionally, we will discuss the undervalued prowess of Denver Broncos' wide receiver Jerry Jeudy, highlighting why he may well be the best wide receiver in the NFL despite not receiving the recognition he deserves.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Are we buying the DeAndre Hopkins to KC buzz? A scouting report on the return of Lamar Jackson, and Will the Chiefs RUN IT BACK?

In today's episode, I am joined by Adam Rank. We kick off the show with a burning question: Is Patrick Mahomes, the Kansas City Chiefs' superstar quarterback, truly underpaid? Despite his immense talent and staggering achievements, Mahomes claims he's more focused on winning championships than his paycheck. But is he being undervalued in comparison to other quarterbacks in the league? Speaking of the Chiefs, will they be able to "run it back" and secure another Super Bowl victory? We explore the team's prospects and discuss the crucial role of Mahomes' second-choice target. With the formidable Travis Kelce commanding attention, who will step up to become Mahomes' go-to receiver? We examine the potential options and forecast the impact on the Chiefs' offensive prowess. Rumors have been swirling about DeAndre Hopkins potentially joining the Chiefs. We examine the validity of these rumors and discuss the implications of adding a wide receiver of Hopkins' caliber to an already explosive offense. Will this move become a reality or remain mere speculation? We turn our attention next to the Baltimore Ravens and the long-awaited return of Lamar Jackson to the practice field. Adam Rank provides a scouting report on Jackson's progress and analyzes the potential impact on the Ravens' offense. What can we expect from Jackson as he regains his form?  Next up we dive into the development of Jalen Hurts. Adam Rank examines Hurts' performance and explore ways in which he can further improve. From refining his mechanics to making better decisions on the field, we provide valuable insights on how Hurts can take his game to the next level. Finally, we address the bold claim made by DJ Moore, who believes that Justin Fields has the potential to become one of the all-time great quarterbacks.

The question at hand is whether a healthy Tua is capable of leading the Dolphins on a playoff run and propelling the team to greater success. Shifting gears, the podcast shifts its focus to the Washington Commanders' quarterback debate. Is Sam Howell the answer to the team's quarterback needs, and the pressure he faces as the potential starter? What expectations does this put on Eric Bienemy, the team's offensive coordinator, in navigating this critical decision? Jersey sales in the NFL take center stage as we explore who claims the top spot in popularity. Which rookie has managed to crack the top 10, sparking conversations about emerging talents in the league?  The latest rule changes from the league meeting in Minneapolis become a topic of interest. We will dissect these changes, and intriguingly, Mike Yam provides both "yes" and "no" perspectives on the same rule proposal.  Lastly, Mike Yam and I investigate why Austen Eckler is the most underpaid player in the NFL. We will evaluate Ekeler's exceptional skills and contributions to his team, considering whether his contract aligns with his value and impact on the field.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
