REShow: Michael Lombardi & Morris Chestnut - Hour 3 (10-05-21)

The Rich Eisen Show

Former NFL GM Michael Lombardi tells Rich why Jaguars owner Shad Khan would be better off firing Urban Meyer sooner rather than later following the head coach’s embarrassing off-the-field weekend following the Jags moving to 0-4 on the season, if Ben Roethlsberger is the Steelers’ best option at QB, why the Chargers have the best roster in the NFL, and why the media made more of the Brady-Belichick reunion that necessary. Actor Morris Chestnut and Rich discuss how he, a Los Angeles native and Lakers and Dodgers die-hard, became a Philadelphia Eagles fan, and his new FOX drama ‘Our Kind of People,’ and what’s accurate and inaccurate about his career and personal life in a round of ‘Celebrity True or False.’   Rich rants against the latest example of the NFL’s crackdown on Taunting when Raiders TE Darren Waller was flagged for spiking the ball on the Chargers’ sideline on Monday Night Football.
