Subscribe to Grandstanding • iTunesStitcherSoundcloud

In this deeply weird 2017 season, this past week was a high (or low) water mark. Deshaun Watson out for the year, Papa John starting a pizza war with the NFL, Ezekiel Elliott suspended and then not … it was as strange as they come. Today, we talk about those stories, as well as why everyone is always so down on the NFL as compared to, say, the NBA. Plus, we offer up our picks for the week ahead. It’s all the prep you need for Week 9, all in one handy package. Enjoy!
