When the NFL schedule came out long ago, this Thursday’s NFC South battle between the Falcons and Saints was one of the games circled as a huge test for Matt Ryan’s squad on its path to New York. Alas, injuries and inconsistent play by the offense coupled with a sieve-like defense have sent the Mike [...]

Harmon rolled into the studio mere moments after Jay Glazer unleashed his report on Julio Jones’ foot injury. Jones made one of the best catches of the 2013 season earlier in the Monday night loss to the New York Jets. He breaks out waiver wire pickups and the implications of Jones’ absence on this Atlanta [...]

Remember, the Vikings, Steelers, Redskins and Buccaneers take their Bye this week. Last week was a mess in terms of “Straight Up” selections. As I went to click “Submit” and noticed I’d made an inordinately large number of road selections, there was a sinking feeling. That occurred well in advance of the Thursday Night Football [...]

The sound of the whistle reverberates across the wide-open field. You hear the grunts, the crashing of pads, the unmistakable sound of a blocking sled and, depending on where you travel, some music. NFL training camps opened across college campuses (and now a number of team facilities) this week. The countdown until your league’s fantasy [...]

In addition to celebrating the social media movie event of the summer (“Sharknado”), Nate Lundy and I actually got a chance to talk about some real gridiron action. Howard Balzer, longtime NFL scribe and commentator, joined the show to talk about player [...]

Harmon’s Podcast 7.15 includes chatter on the Major League Baseball All-Star Game, the Home Run Derby, trade rumors and a lot about social media and pop culture. The Zimmerman-Martin decision came down on Saturday night, and many athletes took to Twitter with a response. For Roddy White and Victor Cruz, their word choices were regrettable [...]

One of the most compelling stories for 2013 as NFL training camps approach is that of Brian Banks, who will battle for a spot on the Atlanta Falcons roster. Here’s the summary of the podcast from NFL.com. “Atlanta Falcons linebacker Brian Banks stops by the “Rich Eisen Podcast” for a discussion with Rich about his [...]

I don’t believe this early-afternoon announcement on “NFL Signing Day” comes as much of a shock, but future Hall of Famer Tony Gonzalez announced that he has decided to return for the 2013 season. “I informed the Falcons I would like to return for one more shot.” Gonzalez had said all along that he was [...]

As the countdown to kickoff winds down, I would be remiss if I failed to go on the record with selections for this round. So, let’s make it short and sweet. CIN at HOU: Houston sputtered down the stretch. I expect Gary Kubiak to get back to basics and run, run, run Arian Foster and [...]

A tired Harmon (no, he was not out running around until late, he did the dream in a dream in a dream nonsense of “Inception”) previews tonight’s Falcons-Packers game. Is Eric Weems the wild card again? Will the Packers commit to the power running game and James Starks for the second straight week? Harmon Minute: [...]

This is a game that will be won through the air. Will Roddy White be healthy enough to make it through the game? Can Tony Gonzalez or Michael Jenkins offer support to Matt Ryan, thereby opening up some space for Michael Turner on the ground? Will Ray Rice ever score again? How much will we [...]
