In the wake of some of the most exciting football of the last decade, we spend the initial part of this podcast talking ... wrestling. Of course we do. Why? Well, because Ric Flair fired up the 49ers, and guess who else was staying at the 49ers' hotel: our own Frank Schwab! He gives us the story behind this picture:

Yep, that's our boy and the Nature Boy. We talk a bit about our own interactions with pro wrestlers, which are so much more fun than getting yelled at by pro athletes.

From there, we segue to a detailed breakdown of all four of last weekend's playoff games. Indianapolis-Kansas City was painful, Philadelphia-New Orleans was surprising. San Francisco-Green Bay was impressive, and Cincinnati-San Diego was heartbreaking. We're headed into one exceptional week of playoff matchups, with each of the remaining eight teams fielding an elite quarterback. It's going to be a lot of fun. Check back Friday for our deep, insightful analysis of those games ... or a lot more yapping on tangents, whichever. It'll be fun.
