Welcome back to CSPN’s Know the Score!
This week, on the heels of the demotion of RG3, we get into a discussion on the current state of the black quarterback in the NFL. In our final two segments of our NFL Offseason Recap series, we focus on the AFC East and NFC North to discuss who will be able to unseat Brady and Rodgers as the elite of their divisions this season?
All of this, plus our nominees for the weekly #KTSPod awards.
This week’s show is moderated by Don Delarente.
