ESPN reporter Jen Lada teams up with Packers Hall of Famer Mark Chmura and longtime ESPN Milwaukee host Gabe Neitzel as they provide unique and raw perspectives on local and national sports headlines.

Does it look like Brian Gutekunst will be willing to mortgage the future just to get Aaron Rodgers back in the fold? Jen thinks he's sleeping easy but Gabe disagrees. What kinda memory do we have when it comes to recent NFL Playoff success? The Top 8 at 8 tests us. If someone gives you *most* of a phone number, is that a reason to want to keep pursuing this person? There are many differing views.
Things get off to a hot start with Chewy asking the origin of birthdays, because he doesn't think it happened before George Washington. Jen was disrespected by KJM this morning and is protesting.

Chewy hijacks the opening of the show very briefly before we start to react to Aaron Rodgers' appearance on the Pat McAfee Show. What will his process actually be like in the offseason? And are we sure he doesn't just want to be traded with some of his comments? Adam Schefter joins the show to provide some insight.
Jen is all hot and bothered about her kids leaving empty packages in the family pantry. How mad should she be about this and normal is it? Chewy gives his updated NFL Playoff Power Rankings. If Aaron Jones is as replaceable as some are arguing, what direction does that mean the Packers will be going?

NFL players continue their fight against the turf playing surfaces that they believe add to their injuries.

It's Kiss A Ginger Day which, obviously, leads to a discussion on famous redheads.
The show gets off on some very weird tangents to start, mainly because Jen claims she'll be staying up late tonight to maybe, possibly see a green comet.

Jen is fascinated by a Ringer article offering the suggestion to trade him to the Jets.
ESPN's Marcus Spears had quite the rant about Aaron Rodgers. The crew debates whether he's right about Rodgers absolutely NEEDING to show up to offseason workouts. Chewy gives us what he'd do if he was the Packers GM...and it's pretty interesting. There's quite a bit on everyone's mind during Take Out The Trash. We recap the polls!
Jen's back from college football championship coverage! She wants to know at what point everyone's body just sorta shuts down and says "bleep you" out of exhaustion.

Jen emptied her pockets today and found somewhere between 13-25 items. That leads to a discussion on bricks, wallets, money clips, butt size, and tush tricks. Anyways. Jason Wilde and Craig Karmazin also joined the show to talk Packers-Lions. We have come to a decision on apologizing to Tausch.
Jen can't understand why she has to ALSO apologize to Tausch and boldly compares herself to the extremely selfish "Rose" character from The Titanic. Gabe put together quite the list for the Top 8 at 8 and just about everyone listening calls in. Why are birds so popular when it comes to team names? Are they even scary?

Ashton is being bothered by a strobe light in the studio.
We're Jen-less today and Gabe suspects it's because of something that she did to Ashton in the text chain. His first big act as an Executive, perhaps? A Ralph Fiennes debate.

Jen teaches the boys a new phrase as they continue reacting to the Packers win. Gabe is doing his best to stay even keeled...because he's afraid of jinxing the turnaround. How important will Aaron Rodgers actually have down the stretch? We ask if Tausch is owed an apology.
Guess what...it's another Victory Monday on the show after another Packers win! It's now win and in against the Lions on Sunday. We give our Number 1s and 2s from the game, dive into the differences the Packers have made on defense, and debate if the win should/could be considered a statement win.

There are some issues on the show with the NFL Power Rankings...including the computer Chewy is reading them off of. Is it bad to be timing how long family gift unwrapping takes? We're all fired up about various things during Take Out the Trash.
Chewy made it to Florida, but his regular voice doesn't appear to have followed him. What's up with these injury designations for the Packers? Badgers send Jim Leonhard off with a win, so where will he land next? Adam Schefter joins the show. Who does Big Cheez-It think they are??

It's National Short Girl Appreciation Day! Jen doesn't know if she qualifies which leads to a LOT of questions.
