My Interview with NewYorkJets.DK

Hey folks,

Just a quick post to let you know about an interview I did with Mark Bundgaard at NewYorkJets.DK, a Danish blog devoted to the New York Jets.

I’ll always be thankful to Mark for this because I can now claim I’m really big in Denmark.

He shot some questions about what the Jets could and should do for this week’s NFL Draft. Find my answers at the link here.

We’ll be doing a recap after the Draft as well so stay tuned.

Thanks to Mark for having me by.

NFL COmbine Coverage and Appearences!

Hey folks -

Have been busy in the batcave setting up some work for one of the most important weeks in football – the NFL Combine. Nothing compares to actually seeing a player PLAY but this is darn near the next best thing and these days you can get a better seat than the press AT the Combine (who cannot witness the workouts, only interview players and staff after said workouts).

If you want to know just what is going and how it impacts your favorite team, your fantasy season or the world economy, I can guarantee you answers for two of the three items listed.

Over the course of the next week I will be hosting or appearing on numerous shows, mostly on NFLDraftbible’s All Access Football shows. At the top of the blog, you can see the general list (which I will add to if other things crop up). Here are some details on some of the shows.

The Thundering Blurb Football Show – tonight (Wednesday at 10pm PST/7pm PST) – Join me as I get you set for the NFL Combine with news and notes as well as an interview with California OLB Zack Follett.

Guest on All Access Football (approx. 10:10pm EST/ 7:10 pm PST) – I’ll be appearing with the guys from NFLDraftbible for a short guest spot where I am sure we’ll talk some Pac 10 prospects and expectations for the coming week of action.

Hosting All Access Football – Combine Show – Saturday 10pm EST/ 7pm PST – Join me for exclusive coverage of the 2009 NFL Scouting Combine. Special Guests: Justin Van Fulpen of Verius Sports * Nick Miller of Southern Utah * Darrell Mack, Greg Newman & Freddie Brown of Utah. Also discussion of the kickers (yes kickers) O-Linemen and TEs who worked out today.

Hosting All Access Football – Combine Show – Sunday 10pm EST/7pm PST – Join me for exclusive coverage of the 2009 NFL Scouting Combine. Special Guests: Will Harding of Fresno State * James Pierce of Langston. Also discussion of the QBs, WRs and RBs who worked out today.

Guest on All Access Football (approx 10:10pm EST/7:10pm PST) – Again appearing with the guys from NFLDraftbible.com to discuss the week so far as well as some PAc 10 prospects as always.

There could be some more over the course of the week and if so, I’ll get them to you. Also, expect at least one article over the weekend here at the Blurb. I’ll have some stuff at Draftguys.com shortly as well as some player interviews at NFLDraftbible in the coming weeks.

We’re ramping up hard – hold on tight, it’s going to be a bumpy ride!

ps – Make sure you check out NFLDraftbible’s COMPLETE coverage of the Combine. Not only will they have shows daily with guests ranging from Draftguys Cecil Lammey and Sigmund Bloom to beat writers to the players themselves but they will have folks on the ground in Indianapolis and reporting in daily.

You want blanketed Combine coverage? Next to NFL network, there’s nobody better than the boys at NFLDraftbible.com.

ESPN Segment and USA Today Blog appearence

Hey Folks

Now that most of the rankings are done, I wanted to post two things I did today that I didn’t want buried under the other posts…

Of course, one is my usual appearance on ESPN 1230 for the guys on the show ‘There It Is’. You can stream the whole show if you want at the Jake Stevens site OR you can listen or download here. We cover the Chargers Defense, Ryan Grant, The Manning Bros – who is better, Mike Turner and my top position picks for the week. Good ten minutes, listen in….

Also, Brian Moore (a frequent and great chatroom fellow for both the Thundering Blurb Fantasy Football Show and The Drive Block) asked me to help him out by being a guest interview on his USA Today Fantasy Blog. You can check my answers out here – we chatted about my recent Kyle Orton love, who is dissappointing and who is impressing and how the returns and injuries of Kevin Curtis, Tony Scheffler and Eddie Royal might impact teams and owners – and that’s only the tip of the iceberg.

You can also check out Bri’s work at his site, FootballHangout.com.

Enjoy!
USA TODAY INTERVIEW

ESPN 1230 APPEARENCE

Welcome to the Thundering Blurb

Hey there folks -

If you’ve somehow ended up here either you know me, know someone who does OR have keen google search skills.

My name is Andrew Garda and I am a freelance writer and sports journalist covering both Pro and College football. I have been writing Fantasy Football content as well for close to 7 years.

The Blurb is my hub for everything – as I work for many sites, I like to make sure people know where my stuff is at at all times. There will be posts. There will be audio links. There will be video links. All my appearances, articles and general stuff will be linked HERE.

That’ll include interviews with both Pro and College players, appearances on podcasts and general news commentary.

And there will be plenty of up to date original content as well.

Football 24/7 to infringe upon a NFL copyright.

Hopefully along with my great insight (eye roll) you’ll find some great links to sites I am working for and their content as well. Win-win for everyone kids.

I’ll be back soon with some discussion of recent events (though it’s sloooow until Training Camps start) but until then, check out this interview with Pittsburgh Steelers rookie LB Bruce Davis and this news and notes show I co-hosted with Mr. Cecil Lammey of Denver Broncos radio and Footballguys.com fame.

And always, ALWAYS feel free to shoot us some questions and comments not just in the comments field but at thunderingblurb(at)gmail.com. I’ll answer them both in email and blog form.

There’s a lot of great stuff coming – come back, won’t you?
