Episode 115: Win Before the Play Starts with Jeff Saturday

Super Bowl champion and six-time Pro Bowl center Jeff Saturday joins the show today. Jeff is currently a sports analysis for ESPN after his NFL career spanned 13 years with the Indianapolis Colts (1999-2011) and one year with the Green Bay Packers (2012).

Over a decade-long period with the Colts, Saturday anchored an offensive line that allowed the fewest sacks in the league (242), and his 132 career wins as a Colt are second only to Peyton Manning (141) in franchise history. Together, Saturday and Manning started an NFL record 172 games as a center-quarterback duo.
