Episode 27: Jerry Rice...Overrated?
Welcome back to another week of our tomfoolery. After our intros we briefly discussed how our Thanksgivings were, and touched on the results of our #TECKTop5 Thanksgiving Draft from last week. We also discussed the upcoming Ugly Sweater party on Saturday, December 23rd at Ugly's so make sure you come out!

HEADING INTO OVERTIME
We then went to our TECKnical Foul Pod: Overtime Facebook group to respond to listener questions and comments from the following:
Tori: Is it okay for a team to lay down on their coach? Is this protest a disservice to the fans who purchase tickets to see them play because they support their team? (01:16:32)
Tim J.: Cavs being on a nine-game win streak has silenced all the premature worrying...crazy how they start out slow, and now that they’re winning...not a sound heard. (01:20:38)
Omar: The end of the Eli Era, does he retire, do the Giants stick with him, do they trade him? Do the Clippers consider blowing it up after the Blake injury (01:22:35)
Anthony: LeBron getting his first ejection, Blake’s injury, Memphis firing their coach, D. Rose taking time off (01:24:49)
KG: Is the #2 NBA pick a bust? Are the Eagles capable of making it to the NFL Championship? Thoughts on LeBron’s first ejection ever in his career. Should the Bucks go after DeAndre Jordan? Erykah Badu’s tribute to Kaepernick (01:25:10)

BLOW THE WHISTLE
Who else could it be? Michael Crabtree had to be the one this week after getting his chain snatched AGAIN, even though he taped it to himself this time (01:40:45).
