The boys are back and start things off with the somber news on the end of Johnathan Franklin’s career with the Packers. Following the sad news, the boys have a discussion about Aaron Rodgers’ comments comparing this upcoming season’s offense to that of 2011, and a discussion about Brett Favre leads the boys to speculate about the health of a fellow PTRN member.

After that the guys discuss after Aaron Rodgers and Clay Matthews, who would be the third of the Packers big 3. Then the boys go behind the bench discussing Ross’ story on Micah Hyde and how he may be the solution of guarding athletic tight ends, before they continue their summer conversation series which was a discussion of their favorite games outside of Super Bowls.
