Inside The Locker: NFL Week 1 Recap

Published by Brian Salisbury on


The locker geeks take to the armchairs to begin their Monday morning (or rather Wednesday evening) analysis of the first week of the NFL. They break down the big plays, recount the best games, discuss fantasy football implications, and hand out some very nerdy awards.

The guys also get into a heated debate over regulated violence in football that almost has them clobbering each other like Ben Grimm on a bad day. They also introduce a new ongoing game segment entitled the ITL Pensieve.

Don’t be a benchwarmer, listen and share this latest episode of Inside the Locker!
