Chestnuts roasting on an open fire. Jack Frost nipping at your nose. Yuletide carols being sung by the choir. And folks dressed up like Eskimos. We are a mere week away from Christmas and so we give you an early SAD Christmas gift. A new installment of Sports Talk With A Side Of Meatballs, a SAD Podcast.

In our newest episode, we discuss the latest epidemic in the NFL that is injuries to its star players. Potential MVP candidate Carson Wentz was lost for the season to a torn ACL, as just the latest player added to a Pro Bowl roster of injured stars. What does this mean for the NFL going forward? Is there any way to stop this egregious epidemic?

With Wentz now gone who are the top potential MVP candidates? Will we have the first wide receiver in NFL history win the award? We take a long look at the MVP Race.

In honor of our Al Dente Dude Of The Week, we take a quick step away from sports and hold our first (soon to be annual) “Dude” Draft. A 5 round draft of the worlds most powerful men. Who goes first overall? Who is Mr.┬áIrrelevant?

As we finish out the 2017 NFL season, who are the coaches on the hot seat? What seat is the hottest with a flaming inferno, and who will be back next year for a second chance? I’ll give you a hint, one name you may not expect.

And finally, we get into the Christmas spirit. What/who does each NFL team have on their wish list for Santa? All aboard the Polar Express!

Merry Christmas to all!
