Austin Ekeler Talks RB Market + Keenan Allen & Mike Williams Talk Justin Herbert vs. Philip Rivers
Recorded: August 16th 2023 | On this weeks episode it is just the boy Willy again for the intro. He recaps our trip to LA from our training camp tour with the Chargers and Raiders. We also hit on Josh Jacobs finally coming to deal after a long hold out. We hit all of the segments along with the boys might be doing a fantasy league so hit the comments with punishments.
Our first interview we sit down with running back from the Chargers, Austin Ekeler. We didn't have him for very long but it's a good conversation. We touch on all of Ekeler's business adventures along with what he would like to once he is done with football. The guys also get into the massive topic that's been circulating the league surrounding the running back market. Austin gives his thoughts on what the running backs can do to try switch up the market. He says that it's not fair for the entire running back community to based off the average where there are outliers who headline the position group.
In the second interview we sit down with the Chargers stud wide receivers, Keenan Allen and Mike Williams. This convo is all over the place spanning from biggest try hards on the team to the difference between Herbert and Rivers as quarterbacks. They get into how Keenan felt when they drafted Mike in the first round and if there was any type of resentment towards Mike. Keenan also talks about the art that goes into releases and route running. Keenan and Mike are funny duo and fit in great with the guys. Tap in and enjoy!
