This podcast makes no sense for TOJ
NFL context for Jets fans
As a Jets fan with a few lingering ELI5 type questions about football generally, this show is great. Dan describes NFL trends, explains fundamentals, and situates Jets decisions in their proper context. Also the best theme music of the various TOJ shows.
Smart and unique approach to a weekly podcast!
