Thursday February 9th, 2017

Our last Thursday show for a little while; we’ll be condensing everything into the Monday show (including mailbag!) going forward. Subscribe to The MMQB: 10 Things Podcast and it will be waiting in your feed first thing Monday morning. (For non-subscribers, there is sometimes a lag.)

If you missed Monday’s show, our reaction to the Super Bowl 51 insanity, it’s right here! As for this show...

As always, Andy and I are very available through social media channels. Send us a question, and we might answer it in a future mailbag:
