Our Editor's Take

When Good Morning Football, the podcast, debuted in late 2021, its launch was an easy decision. When its TV predecessor premiered back in August of 2016, the NFL Network wasn't as confident. A year-round, three-hour football show, every morning (except for Sundays)? It wasn't a guaranteed success. Especially in those dark months without National Football League games. But the show's fun brand of interviews, analysis, reporting, controversial commentary, and picks made for a big hit.

The podcast version of GMFB, as it's known to listeners, clocks in at around 35 to 40 minutes. There are often two podcast episodes released for each TV show episode. But even edited down, the pod goes plenty deep. Of course, there are previews of all the best matchups and recaps of all the best games. There are game plan breakdowns and fantasy tips galore. And fans get recaps of, and reactions to, all the wild moments that happen—both on the field and off.

Does that wideout deserve the second-biggest contract in history for a wide receiver? Should the last-place Jaguars have fired their coach mid-season? Isn't the spread for the Jets-Giants game a little on the wide side? The gang has answers for every question any football fan could conjure up. Indeed, the Good Morning Football podcast is the NFL obsessive's one-stop shop.

GMFB fans hated to see original cohost and unofficial crew ringleader Kay Adams leave the network in 2022. Her replacement, though, was the esteemed former CBS Sports sideline reporter Jamie Erdahl. For their part, both Kyle Brandt and Peter Schrager have cohosted since Day One of the show. Brandt was an executive producer of The Jim Rome Show. Schrager's a longtime Fox Sports reporter. Thirteen-year NFL veteran Jason McCourty is the show's newest weekday host. NFL Network vet Colleen Wolfe hosts on Saturdays. A famous GMFB alum is former cohost Nate Burleson. He currently cohosts the CBS Mornings news show. But he still appears on Good Morning Football to talk NFL with the gang.
