Craig Whelihan Was Ryan Leaf’s DD (with Brett Lorin)

August 3, 2021

Craig Whelihan was drafted in 1995, played terribly in 1997, and then backed up Ryan Leaf in 1998. When the fans are clamoring for a guy who went 0-9 in his starts the previous year, you know you fucked up your draft.

In this episode of Bring In The Backups, I chat about ending season one of the show, what will come in season two, taking brakes, not quitting, Simone Biles, getting a new job, Jessie Ventura, and back to back Craig Whelihan comeback victories for the Chargers in 1998. 

Then Brett Lorin (Too Tall Sports Podcast) joins the pod and we discuss being a minor league pitcher, hip surgery, Jimmy Johns, why The Rainforest Cafe sucks, not talking to your exes, the stadium for the Pensacola Blue Wahoo's, and more.

This is the season one finale. Season two is slated to start in early September. Stay tuned to the pod, make sure you stay subscribed, and enjoy the old episodes.
