"It's been an interesting start, to say the least."

Our very own Charles Robinson wrote this week of the unsteady reality of 32 franchises kicking off their training camp last weekend. Joined by Terez Paylor, the guys discuss at length the tier system being imposed on NFL team employees, the ensuing tier-envy, how NFL head coaches are already breaking COVID procedures and the dystopian implementation of location-tracking wristbands at team facilities. It's going to be a wild season. (2:30)

Terez & Charles also discuss Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson testing positive for coronavirus, and how coaching staffs around the league will be tested in new ways. (12:30)

Likewise, Sean Payton and the New Orleans Saints have reported zero positive cases after confining their entire team and staff to a mini-bubble. Should other teams follow suit and will the league try to institute a larger bubble system like the one implemented in the NBA and NHL? (16:00)

Wrapping up the podcast, the guys take a look at the current MVP odds and pick some dark horse candidates to take home the league's top individual honor. (41:05)
