Sports Illustrated writer Don Banks joined the show and had some great things to say about the past weekend of the NFL playoffs.
Banks weighed in on San Francisco's win against Green Bay and sees the read-option as a "remarkable kind of new precedent for what it means to be a young athletic quarterback in this league". Banks thinks San francisco's success with the read-option was a combination of both physical advantage and scheme and that "every team that now plays San Francisco just got a huge, huge wake up call courtesy of the Packers."
When asked what was the main storyline of the NFL this weekend, Banks answered that the Denver-Baltimore game was a "classic" and that he is "shocked that Baltimore is in this final four," but on that note says that Peyton Manning's post-season struggles are no surprise. On rookie quarterbacks, Banks views Russel Wilson as "the most complete offensive rookie in this league".
Banks anticipates a "fascinating matchup" between New England and San Francisco in Super Bowl XLVII.
