On the twenty-third episode of New Heights, Jason and Travis respond to some of your reactions to our very special Gronk episode and try to figure out who to bring on next (01:40), we go through some of the absolutely insane fan art submissions that all involved shaving the big yeti (13:30), and we answer the not dumb question, “Could the average person rush for 1 yard in the NFL?” (17:20)
We also recap all the incredible games from Super Wildcard Weekend including the Jaguars historic comeback over the Chargers (28:45), the Ravens fumbling it away at the goal line (39:00), Tom Brady possibly playing his last snap in Tampa (49:11), and we go deep on why Mike McDaniel’s and the Dolphins play calling went up in smoke (54:20).
There’s also some non-playoff NFL news to talk about with Aaron Donald possibly announcing his retirement via his Twitter bio (01:00:30), Kliff Kingsbury booking a one-way ticket to Thailand which got us talking about an incredible monkey encounter Jason had overseas (01:02:50), and someone at the Athletic finally doing the official math on the QB sneak (01:08:10).
Finally, we wrap with a look ahead to the Divisional round of the playoffs with the Eagles playing the Giants for the third time this season (01:12:40), the Chiefs at home against the Jags (01:17:41), but more importantly, we go way off script with a discussion about Waffle House and where it ranks in the world of breakfast chain restaurants (01:20:45).
Feels like every good sports podcast eventually lands on a Waffle House discussion so we let this one run long for you guys. Make sure you hit us in the comments below with how you think the guys' rankings hold up.
