Reviews For NFL: The Dave Dameshek Football Program

Leave the White House out of NFL talk
I've been listening to Dave since 2012. Content is great; however, knock off the politics! By snarkely saying you aren't going to talk about the shenanigans in the White House, and then referennce a liberal comedian to get you political updates from. I don't like it. Neigh, i demand you stop it. You have a great show...don't dork it up. I have way too many options to listen too. Thank You, D. Brock
Seriously, it's an NFL football podcast. Knock it off with the game of thrones BS-ing. Make a separate podcast for that junk. The football talk is good, always enjoy Shek's sports talk.
Dave is is kick*ss podcaster and entertainer. His brand of humor may not be for everyone, but this show mixes analysis, jokes, bits, and banter to create an entertaining milkshake of a podcast. Minus one star due to the recent addition of Cynthia Frelund, who's a painful listen with her stuttery delivery, constant self-contradictions, and overly-earnest attempts at humor.
Too much daytime radio vibe. It's a shame too because they have good info but mix it in with too much typical radio sound bites and just blatant obnoxiousness. Dave talks over guests and cuts them off when they are giving good takes.
jersey talk, gravy talk and so much more!
Do we really have to listen to the nonsense nerd-out on a sports podcast!? Who thought this was a good idea?
The DDFP is a very good podcast during football season but during the spring and summer it's an absolute mess.
I found Dameshek years ago when he was going Daves of Thunder with Dave Feeney-- a great podcast if you are a fan of the Shek. The DDFP is one of the best football programs available; there is good insight, a lot of good football perspective from a lot of different sources, and it'll make you laugh. If you require every second of every minute devoted to football, maybe look elsewhere, but if you are a human who enjoys the game of life, stick around.
I'm tired of rich west coast jerks,spouting their anti Trump non sense. Good riddance
Favorite podcast Yet!!!
This show has been wildly entertaining for several seasons now. Ever expanding guest list and thought provoking content have kept me coming back. Very entertaining. UPDATE: Please refrain from devling into the Polotical end of the pool. If I wanted to listen to political talk, I wouild subscribe to a Political Podcast - frankly with reputable and credible pundits. I come to you to listen to sports, not politics. It frankly is a huge turn off. I love your show, but the political commentary makes my head hurt. Dave, you do great work. Skip the video, make it an outtakes video cast if you must. But give us podcast loyalists (and those without the time to watch) what we crave - a dedicated show.
fine show
Kind of a football podcast. Totally awesome.
The blaster
There should be a reoccurring segment dedicated to Dave discussing things that he and the rest of the guests can't stand. Excellent content 10/10
Love love love the show. Big fan of Football baby, bigger fan of brown paper bag, now I got the podcast your guests are great your insight is deep. I like how you can kibitz about football and keep your audience plugged in. Your interviews with players are deep and meaningful. This podcast covers more than just the game of football it also covers the game of life. 👍
All over the place. Never sticks to football. Talk about lots of pointless s*#^. Hr show 15 mins of spread out football.
If you're not going to discuss football, please change the name so people don't waste their time.
Hardly any football talk and all their voices are incredibly annoying. Sorry but F- grade
Awful they hardly talk about football its more of a random talk show
Better then move the sticks.
The show can be entertaining but I find that they go into non football related topics far too often and most of it is just not funny or entertaining. This upcoming opinion is probably a case of "what came fire the chicken or the egg" but Dave comes off as an Adam Carolla clone. His interviews with players are actually pretty good, best part of his podcast imo. Again it is not a bad show but Dave and the format can get rather annoying to the point that I tend to skip shows.
Dave is very fun. Lots of speculative talk and football talk. He has good opinions on lots of things and it's fun to listen to. Skip podcasts where he brings in Ike, I don't even listen to those anymore. Not as much of in depth football talk; Dave is a fan of the game not a scout or exec. It's a nice change and gives a different view on things than some of the more analytical podcasts. Recommend to those who just like to listen to guys talking about football, life, and want a good time.
Daves of Thunder is still my favorite podcast of all-time. I listened to the ESPN podcast before that w/ Skyler and The Ed. I love Dave. But, this podcast has become such a constant changing thing. Why can't Dave have 1 or 2 regulars and that's it? I don't want to meet every NFL employee that's ever been hired. I want a pod w/ continuity like Dave had in the old days.
Shek is the best podcaster in the universe. He has the best opinions on football in the entire media industry that covers sports. He is more valuable to the NFL than Roger Goodall, Jerry Jones, and Tom Brady combined. Shek deserves this praise.
I couldn't believe it. What is this.
I wandered across the podcast about midseason & have enjoyed the info & the yuks. Even the Steeler homerism & the bashing of all their main rivals was kinda funny for a while. But they started their conference championships recap show with 15 minutes on the got-blown-out Steelers.......a third of the show. Ridiculous. Move back to Pittsburgh & go on AM radio.
You'd think with the power and money of the NFL backing this podcast the product would be much more refined. Shek has years of radio/podcasting experience, he must see that this is a clunky, poorly produced show that has been on the decline for a while now. Ike Taylor has got to go. His command of the English language is as bad as the North Korean space program. Football player, yes. Analyst and broadcaster, no chance in hell. Oh, and Honey Crisp apple got jobbed this year.
I've listened since the beginning, but there's no way I'm enduring another off season.
Sheks the man. The amateurs who join him when the great Bucky brooks and handyman hank are not there, are pretty bad. Let me re word that! HORRENDOUS! I swear they don't even watch sports. Haha When there asked something out of there league they switch to talking about life decisions lol shek just goes with it. 5 stars when there all together great show
Two stars - they get one more than they deserve only because I learned to appreciate silence after listening to this buffoon.
I love DDFP!
Great show. Keep it up. Dave is fantastic and his guests and regulars are top notch. Go Steelers!
His podcast with Al Franken was my last. Too political, and on the wrong side. He's bought in to global warming, cops killing blacks and so forth.
I like Dave and Hank, but I'm so sick of MJD and the millenial kids he has on.
Just finished episode 508. Boy was I impressed how well the "show" went even without the structure of one. Funny conversations churning out good points from all perspectives of the football spectrum. The Thanksgiving draft was hilariously "filling". I'm glad they made an audio-only episode for those of us who can really only listen in. Thanks for the laughs and I hope you do reach 1000 episodes.

3/5

I use to like the podcast but if you enjoy in depth football analysis and game picks and so on, this is absolutely NOT the podcast for you. If you like pointless pie talk and random discussions that have nothing to do with the NFL for a majority of the 70 minute casts then this is an excellent cast for you but I have to unsubscribe and take my ears elsewhere
Hate Dave demeshek. I get you love the steelers. Stop making it sound like they are the best team in the world. It's really f-ing annoying.
Always worth a listen. Ike Taylor, MJD, and company are always great guests, and guest hosts when Shek is out. Great change of pace from the 'normal' NFL podcasts.
I have been a Dameshek fan for a while but finally just pulled the cord on this podcast. There's some decent analysis from some of the NFL.com guys, but there's way too much talk of the Steelers on here.
Love this show and all the people involved. Great football talk with some humor mixed in.
Handsome Hank, is he a novelty, he's the equal opportunity hire. Are they trolling us all, it's adorable. A proper Englishman discussing American football. Mjd was a great running back, hang your hat on that. Shek? He's fantastic, quite a pleasure to listen to. He's a little steelers bias. But I'm okay with that, I wish more media members would have the fan gene. And finally, Ike Taylor, that is all.
Favorite NFL pod
Shek, I used to love this show. But Ike is awful. Don’t let your love of his on-the-field achievements torpedo the DDFP. I’ve moved on to the ATL for a while. Hope when I come back that you’ve come to your senses and surrounded yourself with some real talent again. Hank can stay.
Used to really love this podcast but shek is losing his mind. Also, they keep doing video on the show, which is stupid because it's an audio program. If you wanna do video Dave, go do video.
This podcast is very entertaining and very informative but it feels like whenever I am listening to it I have to cram whatever I'm wearing down my ears just to be able to hear anything if you guys could up the audio just a bit that would be amazing. When something is too loud you can just turn it down but if it's too quiet there's only so much you can do to turn it up.
I just want to see the bane of the steelers,they're #1 bogeyman Vontaze Burfict interviewed by shek.
It's an okay podcast as long as you don't mind the host's random yelling ( a la Barry Switzer).
