The AA Podcast returns after a bye week to ring in the beginning of a new NFL season with Fox NFL Sunday host Curt Menefee. Curt took over the reins of America's #1 pregame show full time in 2007 and has been instrumental in the continued success of Fox NFL Sunday.

-How important the off-air relationships at Fox are to on-air chemistry.
-The keys to Fox NFL Sunday's continued success and how other pregame shows have followed their blueprint.
-What a typical 12 hour Sunday is like during the NFL season.
-The advice from former Fox Sports chairman David Hill when taking over the pregame job.
-His expanding role and Fox Sports into soccer and UFC versus being seen as an "NFL guy."
-Fox's longterm vision with global soccer.
-What we learned from the Saints, Redskins, Packers, and 49ers in Week 1.
