Football Nation proudly presents the eighth episode in season three of "Monday Morning Huddle" with host Dave Holcomb. This week's podcast starts with the Minnesota Vikings and the suspension the franchise handed out to its special teams coach Mike Priefer. In former Vikings punter Chris Kluwe's story and letter to Deadspin, Kluwe included several anecdotes where Priefer said homophobic statements, one of which an investigation confirmed. The former punter, however, still argues the suspension does not fit the crime. Next, Holcomb discusses the highly unlikely possibility the Bills relocate, the feature back for the Jacksonville Jaguars and offensive lineman Chris Snee's plans to announce his retirement. Finally, in the 'Fourth and Long' segment, the host debates 2014 first round busts, the Denver Broncos and the most memorable plays in NFL history.

June 09, 2014 09:27 AM PDT
Football Nation proudly presents the fourth episode in season three of "Monday Morning Huddle" with host Dave Holcomb. After last episode's discussion of the NFC West, again this week's podcast begins debating the new huge contract Colin Kaepernick received from the San Francisco 49ers. Which side does it favor more and will more contracts be structured like Kaepernick's?
In the second segment, Holcomb takes two of Football Nation's top stories and disagrees with them. First, Patrick Barber lists three teams that should make a quarterback change before the season starts, but one of the franchises has made the playoffs each of the last three seasons. Next, Ryan Hutson names five coaches with something to prove this season, but does a two-time Super Bowl winning coach really have something to prove?
Finally, the show ends with four statements in the 'Fourth and Long' segment. To start, Tom Brady and whether he is still an elite quarterback. Then, the draft potentially moving to other cities around the USA and whether fans should believe Pete Carroll in saying that if he could do it over, he would not leave USC. Lastly, the NFL announced it would use Super Bowl 50 as its logo rather than Super Bowl L.
