Former NFL general manager Mike Tannenbaum built plenty of rosters over his time in the league, and now he’s beefing up a football media roster of his own. Tannenbaum is teaming up with former NFL executives and coaches on a “football think tank.” The group is producing content and has entered into a deal with SiriusXM.

The 33rd Team is making a weekly Thursday fantasy football show and a weekly Friday NFL show for SiriusXM. The group has also built up a website and newsletter in order to release their own football content.

“The 33rd Team provides content unlike any other, tapping into our vast experience and connections within the football world,” Tannenbaum said in a press release. “We’ve already seen incredible success leading up to our official launch through existing editorial platforms. This partnership with SiriusXM will only elevate that engagement and we are ecstatic to see it come to fruition.”

Mike Tannenbaum rubbed elbows with the likes of Bill Belichick and Bill Parcells over 20-plus years in the NFL. He is now an NFL analyst for ESPN after running personnel decisions for the Miami Dolphins and New York Jets. Voices involved in The 33rd Team include former Philadelphia Eagles president Joe Banner and former coaches Eric Mangini, Ken Whisenhunt, and Wade Phillips.

“We’ve grown at an exceptionally fast pace since our soft launch, which I attest to the editorial that our diverse talent roster produces,” said Banner. “We are able to separate ourselves from the rest and provide analysis that cannot be found anywhere else. Now, our unique commentary will be a part of the SiriusXM network for fantasy sports fans and players everywhere.”

The group has already begun advising outside teams privately. They research practice trends and injuries for various teams and universities. Tannenbaum came up with the idea when he hired a few Massachusetts Amherst students to help him prepare for the 2019 NFL Draft.

They impressed him so much that Tannenbaum (an Amherst graduate) started a partnership with the school to give these students direct experience and access with established NFL professionals.

The 33rd Team soft-launched in late-2020 and currently has 50,000 newsletter subscribers.

Jerry Jones On Listening To Sports Radio: ‘I Like Pain’

“I guess I’m one of the few people that can’t stand it and want to see what people are saying.”

No one can accuse Jerry Jones of being shy. The Dallas Cowboys owner is always welcoming of the chance to be in the public eye. That includes making appearances on sports talk radio. Friday he was a guest on K&C Masterpiece on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas.

Jones has made headlines on the station before. Some of those headlines have been for getting angry with both K&C in the past and morning men Shan & RJ. On Friday, it was his thoughts on the format itself that made the headlines.

“I guess I’m one of the few people that can’t stand it and want to see what people are saying. Is that human nature or not?” Jerry Jones answered when asked why he listened.

He admits that plenty of people have wondered why he would continue to listen to sports talk shows when the Cowboys are so polarizing.

“I use to have people ask me, ‘why in the world do you listen to talk radio, because they’re wearing your proverbial butt out?’ (And my response was)’I like pain. I just like to hear it. Just put it in me.'”

While the Cowboys came out of Week 1 with a loss, sports talk in Dallas has largely been kind to the Cowboys. The aforementioned Shan & RJ said that Dak Prescott’s performance should be the story of week 1 considering that the Cowboys’ quarterback missed most of last season with a shoulder injury.

Time will tell if Jerry Jones is in for his beloved pain following the Cowboys’ visit to LA to take on the Chargers on Sunday.

Mike Golic, Dave Pasch Reunite On Westwood One Next Week

“The pair has the radio call after being on TV together for the first time last season.”

Mike Golic Sr. and Dave Pasch are reuniting on the Westwood One airwaves. Rudy Martzke reports that Golic and Pasch are calling next week’s Thursday Night Football clash between the Carolina Panthers and the Houston Texans.

The pair has the radio call after being on TV together for the first time last season. Pasch is the voice of the Arizona Cardinals and calls college football and basketball for ESPN. Golic exited ESPN last year after spending 25 years with the network as a radio host and football analyst.

Martzke had some thoughts on the pairing that he shared with Barrett Media.

“Very popular duo last season,” Martzke said. “Ton of games, unfortunately, were cancelled including an ND [Notre Dame] game. Chemistry, mostly remote, was lighting up Twitter how great they were calling the games.”

Golic has shown the broadcasting chops and personality to mesh into almost any broadcast team. He seemingly found a great partner in Pasch, who often pairs with Bill Walton on ESPN college basketball broadcasts. Although, don’t expect to see Golic eating a cupcake, lit candle and all, on the broadcast next Thursday.

Pasch actually worked Golic’s final event as an ESPN employee during the 2021 Playstation Fiesta Bowl. The crew built Golic a sendoff video and even brought in a cake for the analyst to eat on air.

“25 years ago,” Pasch described. “Mike Golic joined ESPN, did everything from NFL studio analyst to Monday Night Football and of course a long partnership with Mike Greenberg. Mike & Mike went 18 years. You get your son, Mike Golic Jr. now is an excellent broadcaster, both radio and calling games. Mike’s in the Broadcasting Hall of Fame, the National Radio Hall of Fame, the USA Wrestling Hall of Fame as well.”

On Thursday, it’s back to business for Pasch and Golic as they rekindle their burgeoning chemistry on the Westwood One airwaves.
