All Things Covered already features one 2-time Super Bowl champion, but on this episode we welcomed another. Brandon Jacobs joined hosts Patrick Peterson and Bryant McFadden to discuss his experiences beating Tom Brady and the Patriots, the 2005 RB draft class, Eli Manning's legacy and much more (29:00). But first, Pat and BMac do their thing. They start by remembering the life and career of Kobe Bryant, nearly a year after his tragic death (1:15). The guys then shift focus to the conference championship games (4:45), exploring tons of angles from Bucs-Packers. Can we agree on the Brady vs. Belichick debate now or is that still ongoing? Will Aaron Rodgers remain in Green Bay? P2 shares his thoughts on Matt LaFleur's controversial decisions from Sunday, while BMac is disgusted with a defensive play call from before halftime. Pat is thrilled for some familiar faces who will be appearing in the Super Bowl including Bruce Arians, Todd Bowles and first ever All Things Covered guest, Tyrann Matheiu. Then, we debut a new segment called "Has Pat Heard!?" as we check in with what he may have missed as he fully embraces "offseason mode" (21:45). Next, Brandon Jacobs joins the podcast (29:00). He answers if he'll be rooting for Tom Brady in the Super Bowl, the challenges of advancing as a Wild Card team and his thoughts on the recent resurgence from Leonard Fournette. Brandon is a big man and comments on the disadvantages of playing running back at over 6'4. He also shares his high school and college journey from JUCO to backing up Ronnie Brown and Cadillac Williams to Southern Illinois. Jacobs shares what it was like taking over the starting role for the Giants after Tiki Barber retired and the confidence the team felt facing the Patriots in Super Bowl 42. Does David Tyree have the best Super Bowl catch of all time? Well, not if BMac has his say about a personal Steelers memory. Brandon is certain that Eli Manning is a no-brainer Hall of Famer, but isn't so sure of Saquon Barkley's future in New York. Finally, we hit our Superlative and hear who is the best backfield in NFL history.
