In the latest episode of “Football Nation Today,” Alex gives his take on the biggest stories around the NFL:1st Down: With the league at its halfway point, Alex addresses a series of questions that have been debated on the show over the past couple of weeks:*Do the undefeated Falcons get enough respect?*Do the Cowboys or Eagles have a legitimate chance at resurrecting their seasons?*Are the Broncos, riding the coattails of Peyton Manning, the second best team in the AFC?*Which team is the worst team in the NFL?  Do the Chiefs have competition?*If you had to win a game TONIGHT, would you feel comfortable starting Andrew Luck?2nd Down: Rumors were swirling around the NFL this weekend about the league’s decision to void the contract of Saints coach Sean Payton, which would cause him to be a free agent at season’s end.  Roger Goodell did not explicitly deny or confirm the story this week.Alex explains why the NFL shouldn’t stop at kicking Payton out of New Orleans.  Given Payton’s track record of filth, Alex says they should look to kick him out of the league.3rd Down: In the “Big Up or Slow Down” segment, Alex debates whether we can take anything from the result of the Giants/Steelers game last week, if the “Patriot Way” is dead with the acquisition of Aqib Talib and if Rex Ryan is the most overrated coach in the NFL.4th Down: It’s the “Reimer Rant,” and this week Alex is riled up about the trade deadline (or lack thereof).  The NFL gives us everything; even the draft has become a major prime time event.  Why can’t the league seem to get the trade deadline right?Feel free to leave your comments about the page here on the show page, or email Alex at areimer@bu.edu.  Also, follow him on Twitter @AlexReimer1.  Hopefully those who were able to make it to the polls did so yesterday.
