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.

670 The Score morning host Mike Mulligan is being awarded the Father Finnegan Memorial Award from Loyola University Chicago this weekend, and some of his colleagues congratulated him on the air Friday morning.

The award is given “in recognition of outstanding humanitarianism and service to youth through athletics”. Mulligan — a 1984 graduate of Loyola University Chicago — will receive the award Saturday during the Loyola Athletics Hall of Fame ceremony during a game against George Mason.

“Tremendous award,” co-host David Haugh said. “Proud moment for the show. Proud moment for you family.”

“They’re giving me an award for correctly picking the Super Bowl on September 8th,” Mulligan joked.

“That is fantastic,” Laurence Holmes said, while his co-host, Dan Bernstein, continued to say “wow”. “Congratulations. You shouldn’t be embarrassed. You should be proud.”

“I’m being celebrated for being old,” Mully joked.

“That’s not what that award says,” countered Holmes. “It says something completely different.”

The Mully & Haugh host eventually admitted he was appreciative of the award bestowed upon him by his alma mater.

“It’s a good thing. I’m very moved by it. Sister Jean will be there,” Mully said. “She has a book coming out with — I think — Seth Davis.”

“I’ve always felt like Tony Romo is one of those guys — and we all have somebody in our social circle like this — he got the golf bug. He’s had it for 15 years.

The performance of CBS Sports NFL analyst Tony Romo has been a hot-button topic in sports media circles, especially after a widely-regarded lackluster performance during the AFC Championship Game. Colin Cowherd believes he knows why Romo has regressed.

During an episode of The Colin Cowherd Podcast, the sports radio host claimed golf is the reason behind Romo’s regression.

“Romo wants to be on the Tour. He literally wants to be on the Tour,” Cowherd said. “And what’s the first thing Aaron Rodgers does in the off-season? He goes and golfs, he loves it. Both, by the way, great golfers, especially Romo. But I’ve always felt like Tony Romo is one of those guys — and we all have somebody in our social circle like this — he got the golf bug. He’s had it for 15 years.

“Tony wants to be on the PGA Tour — but he likes the paycheck from CBS.”

Cowherd also added he hasn’t hired potential employees in the past if they told him they loved golf during the interview process, saying he has a theory that as men age they “get addicted to golf”.

“They’re on PGATour.com, they’re putting in the backyard, they’re thinking about it at work, they’re scheduling a trip to Scotland and they lose sight of their other job,” Cowherd said.
