For the majority of fanatics, the desire to out-smack opponents has subsided. The NFL's regular season, and most owners' will to chase virtual trophies, has ended. However, it's never too early to start prepping for next season. After all, the early bird does get the worm. Over the Freak Show's first hour, Brad Evans and the industry's most accurate expert in 2011, Scott Pianowski, reflected on the year that was to better prepare owners for what's in store next season.

Too busy polishing your new Jordans? No worries. You can listen to the replay below.
