Julio Jones Traded, Jim Fassel Passes, and Expansion All Around

Join host Harry Broadhurst, Erik Watkins, and Keneddi Eddings as they present their unique looks at the worlds of professional and college football, combining a mixture of statistical knowledge with razor-sharp wit.

Erik takes the reins once again, as he guides the trio (Jason choosing to be on assignment) through a busy offseason newsdesk.

Starting with the blockbuster trade of Julio Jones and what it means for both Atlanta and Tennessee, to a new potential destination for Deshaun Watson despite his current legal situation. There is finally time for an NFL QB…but for once it’s not Patrick Mahomes!

The group also wonders if there’s such a thing as too much of a good thing with early reports on a timeline of an 18-game schedule in the NFL and at least one new (old) league coming to town with the revival of the USFL and talks between the XFL and the CFL.

In the college world, manifest destiny is the theme. There are changes in freedom of movement out west, and the College Football Playoff could have an expansion plan, and Harry and Erik figure out what that would potentially mean for the season as a whole.

Finally, a little madness and a little sadness, as Harry gets on his soapbox to discuss the Britt Reid plea and the Isi Etute murder case, and a tribute to the late Jim Fassel with a discussion about his career legacy.

The crazy CFL ending that Erik mentioned can be found here.

All that and much more when you check out season four, episode thirty-nine of The Kickoff, a presentation of the W2M Network.

The Isi Etute story can be found here.

About The Kickoff

Ladies and gentlemen welcome to The Kickoff with Harry Broadhurst, Erik Watkins, Jayson Teasley, and Kennedi Eddings. This is not your traditional football show. Rather than breaking down every single game, we give you all the must-know information and the debate. While encouraging each other to speak what we think. Whether we are right, wrong, or just plain nuts.

Harry Broadhurst

Harry Broadhurst is a lifelong Buffalo Bills fan based out of Youngstown, Ohio. In addition, he also enjoys torturing himself by watching tons of Reality TV and listening to pop music. When he’s not watching the Bills on Sundays, you’ll find him rooting on his beloved Florida Gators on Saturdays as well.

Jayson Teasley

Jason Teasley, the man, the myth, the legend, in his own mind. Fantasy football junkie and the residential evil ginger that brings his insights and opinions whether warranted or not.

Erik Watkins

Erik started out with watching games and staying up late for Sunday and Monday night. It spread to college, and eventually just about every single sport in the book. By the time he graduated from UNF, all his friends and family thought Erik would be better off as a sportswriter. Perhaps a journalist, or a commentator than anything to do with math (boy were they right). So, after wandering around with a degree and looking for a job, he started a blog. The blog turned into some freelance work. After that, work led him right here talking about the game that he loves.

Keneddi Eddings

Keneddi is the daughter of a football referee and a lifelong member of Bills Mafia who happens to find herself on the West Coast. When she’s not snackin’, she’s either shouting “ROLL TIDE!” on Saturdays or her beloved Buffalo on Sundays.
