The Trenches NFL Podcast: Robert Mays and Ephraim Salaam

Replacement referees This week on The Trenches, I decided to take full advantage of Ephraim Salaam’s 13 years as an NFL offensive tackle and drag out the Jay Cutler shoving-his-lineman controversy another day. Then, of course, Ephraim made sure we didn’t leave that conversation without me feeling properly horrible about the Bears’ performance at Lambeau.

Speaking of horrible performances! Ephraim and I discussed the real issue with the NFL replacement referees, the Ravens’ offensive identity crisis, the Patriots’ shameless Wes Welker contract ploy, and more on the run-up to Week 3 of the NFL season.
