Turf Show Radio S10E41: Bye week recap & Week 13 (@ DET) preview

We invited the Professor on to the pod...and he went full Professor.

0:57 - “And joining us for the first time and maybe last time ever...the Professor.”

4:50 - It’s Week 13. The Los Angeles Rams at the Detroit Lions. Is it a...TRAP GAME?!

7:33 - The Rams’ defense is bad, but it’s not really bad. Well, it could be considered bad. But by 2018 standards it’s not. But it kinda is. But also don’t forget that it’s not. But it might be. But given who we’ve played, it probably isn’t. Unless it is.

10:30 - “The Detroit Lions are essentially a garbage team”

11:26 - The Professor points out that the New Orleans Saints play the Dallas Cowboys on Thursday, and that will have a huge impact on the framing of the Rams’ game on Sunday.

12:14 - “It feels like right now we’re playing against the New Orleans Saints [every week].”

12:45 - Which team in the NFC is it more surprising to see with just four wins: the Green Bay Packers or the Atlanta Falcons?

19:07 - How many points do the Rams need to win by for you to feel comfortable with the result?

20:12 - Play like champions. Act like champions. Dress like champions? Smell like champions? Can QB Jared Goff lead the Rams through the playoffs if he uses Axe?

21:39 - Which player on the Rams has his own line of soap? (Sebastian Joseph-Day absolutely doesn’t)

23:40 - The Professor owns Rams soap. And Rams cologne. Whatever the hell that is.

24:30 - CB Aqib Talib rejoins the team off of IR. How does his return impact things? The TSR team goes deep into this Sunday and the state of the Rams heading into Week 13.

38:21 - “I WANNA SEE MUNDT.”

38:48 - Who benefits most from the absence of WR Cooper Kupp: WR Josh Reynolds or the Rams’ tight end duo of Tyler Higbee and Gerald Everett?

43:57 - X-factors. Joey takes RB Malcolm Brown. Rob-o goes with EDGE Samson Ebukam. The Prof takes PR JoJo Natson, Jr. 3k takes LG Rodger Saffold.

46:25 - Which team would the Rams not match up well against in the playoffs? Joey takes the Minnesota Vikings while the other three take the Seattle Seahawks.

58:40 - USC has decided to keep Head Coach Clay Helton around despite a 5-7 season and a, uh, bye week during bowl season. The Professor laments what his alma mater is doing while Rob-o, a UCLA grad, celebrates.

1:01:45 - Are all father-in-laws Michigan Men?

1:05:24 - Final thoughts.

Bonus easter egg - “I would get a prescription of Ambien and take the whole bottle.”
