EOF Podcast: Seahawks-Packers preview, Jim Irsay suspended

CBS Sports

Football starts Thursday night. (!) Seahawks-Packers kicks things off for the 2014 NFL season, which means the Eye on Football Podcast is gonna break things down./p>

Ryan Wilson and I take a look at the matchup, discussing whether Jordy Nelson can beat Richard Sherman in coverage this time around (he did not in 2012) and whether the Packers offensive line can protect Aaron Rodgers this time around (he was sacked eight times in the first half in 2012).

Additionally we talk about the news of the day/week in what's been a crazy lead up to the NFL season.

For starters: Jim Irsay's suspension. Was six games fair for the Colts owner? Is $500,000 too little relative to what a billionaire is worth? Should the NFL punish the Colts roster for Irsay's actions?

J.J. Watt also got a brand-spanking-new $100 million contract from the Texans. Is he worth ... OK he's worth it. We look at the specifics of the deal and what it means for Watt.

And finally, Derek Carr was named the starter in Oakland -- can he save the jobs of Reggie McKenzie and Dennis Allen?
