CSG #20: Karl Mecklenburg Interview & Top 5 NFL Linebackers

For the anniversary of the 20th show, the guys welcome on Broncos legend and Pro Football Hall of Fame finalist Karl Mecklenburg. The former 12 year NFL veteran played from 1983-1994 and amassed 79 career sacks for the Broncos. Ross and Nate get Mecklenburg's thoughts on the Hall of Fame honors, some stories from his playing days, what it would be like if players were still "policing" the game, his thoughts on the current Broncos team, and what he's up to now - his motivational speaking and thoughts on perhaps coaching in the NFL.

The guys also talk Nuggets as Arron Afflalo was recently re-signed, plus the start of the NBA season is just five days away - six days for Nuggets Nation. Nate and Ross answer a few questions from Denver Stiffs readers about the team and express their expectations for the upcoming season.

The Broncos vs. Patriots game is discussed: how Tim Tebow played, the costly fumbles, the chances of still winning the AFC West, and the risks the team should be taking in the last two games.

In honor of Mecklenburg, the guys discuss the Top 5 NFL Linebackers where Ross gravitates towards some local names and Nate sticks with some classics and one John Elway tormentor.

We still have plenty of Rockies, Colorado Buffs, and Colorado State Rams eye black patches from Eyeblack.com to give away. Just shoot us an email at show@coloradosportsguys.com and we'll send you out some.

And if you want to see what Mecklenburg is up to now, check out his website: Karl Mecklenburg.com and support his efforts and read about his tales in his book: Heart of a Student Athlete.
