Ian Eagle is the Jets’ preseason play by play announcer. He is also well-known for his work calling the NFL on CBS and Brooklyn Nets basketball on the YES Network. He has a busy schedule that also includes college basketball and tennis among other things.
Ian is the guest on today’s podcast. After calling three of the four Jets’ preseason games, there might not be a better person anywhere who can analyze the state of the team heading into the regular season. Ian and I discuss the impact of Sam Darnold, whether Todd Bowles finally has the players to run his defensive system, and where expectations should be for the Jets this season. We also talk Ian’s career a bit, namely how he prepares for games, his dream job, and whether CBS gives him the jackets he wears on air the logo on it.
Thanks as always for your support listening to the podcast.
