Our Editor's Take

The 3 and Out with John Middlekauff podcast stars the former analyst and scout John Middlekauff. On the show, he shares commentary and insights about college football and the NFL in his signature high-energy style. He offers more than just game recaps and predictions. He also analyzes news stories off the field. These often impact how one's favorite team plays each week during the season. The podcast title comes from a football expression, when a team has to punt after not making a first down.

As a host, Middlekauff brings unique insight into game analysis. This is thanks to his experience as an analyst and scout for the league. He began his career in 2006 as a sports writer for Mustang Daily. After working as a scout for the Eagles from 2010 to 2013, he moved into sports radio in San Francisco. Eventually, he left his work with radio vet Colin Cowherd and began hosting this podcast in 2018.

The podcast offers impressive and comprehensive coverage of various football stories. Listeners looking for news about the NFL and college football on the same podcast can find it here. This is a very convenient aspect of the program that helps listeners find what they need quickly.

Middlekauff has developed a reputation for his candid thoughts on players and coaches. He has no trouble voicing his concerns on the podcast. For example, he discusses how Bryce Young's size could hinder his career going forward. He also speaks about coaches, wondering if the Krafts were part of the Belichick leaks. Fans of the sport likely have these same questions and wonder how they will impact the NFL in the future.

The 3 and Out with John Middlekauff podcast airs new episodes from Monday to Friday of each week. They average between 60 and 80 minutes in length. Colin Cowherd fans will also find something to enjoy here. This channel also occasionally includes episodes of the Colin Cowherd Podcast.
