Apr 12, 2021, 9:32 PM


Tyler is finally back in studio, and he wastes no time getting on DMac’s case. DMac describes how he felt doing the Imperial Challenge again over the weekend after many years. Inspired by a group of mic’d up offensive linemen, Tyler reveals what “big fellas” talk about during practice and in the huddle. At The Water Cooler, the guys react to Hideki Matsuyama’s historic Masters victory. Ryan Spilborghs, our Fan Rockies Analyst, joins the show to break down the Rockies’ disappointing series against San Francisco and react to the controversial ending to the game between the Phillies and Mets.


In the second hour, Tyler and DMac try to make sense of the ESPN report saying the Eagles are potentially looking to draft a quarterback this month, despite having Jalen Hurts and trading back with the Dolphins. Who are the 49ers more interested in watching this week: Justin Fields or Trey Lance? Mike Klis, our 9News Broncos Insider, discusses the reports regarding Peyton Manning’s recent conversations with Drew Lock. Nicki Jhabvala, who covers The Washington Football Team for the Washington Post, re-joins the show to break down the likelihood that Washington will try to trade up for a quarterback this year.


In the third hour, Mt. Polumbus speaks on what drafting a young quarterback this year would mean for Vic Fangio’s job security. The guys discuss whether or not they believe Charles Barkley when he says he was offered the Monday Night Football job by ESPN.


In the fourth hour, Tyler and DMac recap the top stories of the day during the Top 6 at 6:00. Adrian Dater, our Fan Avalanche Insider, joins the show to break down the Avalanche’s most recent trades and how they could impact the team’s playoff chances. DMac describes his experience doing the Imperial Challenge in Breckenridge again. Mike Klis, our 9News Broncos Insider, joins the show to discuss the recent reports about Peyton Manning and Drew Lock conversing this offseason.
