would be five stars if trevor plugged in headphones to stop the annoying feedback playing. everything else about the podcast is 10/10. just a nitpick about the production
To whom it may concern, I do not write reviews. I don’t give 5 star or 1 star reviews for apps or games, no matter how amazing or abysmal they are. Let that be your first hint that speaks to the true greatness that is the NotJoeFlacco Podcast (yeah I actually capitalized the P, take that Podcast 194’s featured reviewer). I told NotJoe this would be the best review he’s ever gotten and I fully intend for that to stay true. Where do I start when speaking of the podcast? For those who have never listened: it is a podcast of three old friends simply bantering back and forth for an hour or two, covering anything from football takes to the depths of their personal lives to anything in between. As a weekly listener, it reminds me of all the countless times I’ve had these conversations with my friends, and I think that casual format is what keeps listeners like myself coming back for more. It isn’t another form of news or like most sports podcasts, but rather feels like a friend is telling you their opinion. It adds subjectivity into conversations, which I personally think is amazing, especially when you consider the amount of flaming hot takes the format allows them to speak about without getting absolutely flamed by fans. (...as I sit here and write a few sentences flaming their takes?) NotJoe’s ability to direct the conversation and also keep it going is superb. Each of the three men seem to have a variety of knowledge in their own random field, leading to everyone being able to contribute at nearly all times and a lack of redundancy in the characters. I appreciate the consistent uploads and the fact that NotJoe replies to all my fan mail, it’s not every day you get to text a real life superhero. Truth be told, I started listening maybe a month or two ago, and I had no clue how the podcasts would go once the season was over and the fire of the off season and all its trades and drama started to calm down. Let it be known that NotJoe, Trevor, and Doug (sorry if I butchered any spelling somehow??) have thoroughly carried me through this summer, as their weekly uploads make my drive to and from work every week seem much less mediocre. I don’t listen to podcasts. I just don’t. And yet, I do. Their passion for everything they talk about, from their respective teams to clowning players who need to be clowned (Chase Clownpool) to absolutely busting over Top Gun: Maverick is what makes this podcast amazing. It gives off an atmosphere of friendship, and more importantly includes all the bullsh-t (does Apple let me curse on this?), special moments, and laughter along the way. It is often some of the best hours of my week. Now that that’s out of the way, sorry for meatriding the last 491 words, but I said I’d be the best. Seriously though, just go listen to the podcast. PS. RIP Jaylon Ferguson and Tony Siragusa, all love from the Ravens Flock.
You can’t choose family. But if I could, I would choose Notjoe, Doug, and Trevor. I am thoroughly convinced that there are no three more entertaining and funny people in the world to talk about football, movies, or any wide variety of inevitable tangents that these three go on every episode. You will never be bored listening to this show, even during the off-season which is unique for a football podcast. The segments of the show are so interesting compared to any other football podcast, from the three man drafts of different things in the football world to my all time favorite, start bench cut, it is constant entertainment. I mean, I swear these are the only people out there who can make me laugh on an unhealthy level listening to a conversation about ceiling fans, swivel chairs, and napkins. This show is truly one of the highlights of my week. It brings a tear to my eye every time I hear the Trevor’s hockey corner intro song because I know it means there’s only a half hour, 45 minutes tops left in the episode. This is seriously the best football podcast there is, and if you don’t start listening right now, you’re dumber than chase claypool thinking he’s a top 3 receiver in the league. Go broncos P.S. Thank god Russell Wilson can throw a football well because he is by far the cringiest person ever it hurts my ears to listen to him talk.
The NotJoeFlacco podcast on the surface is simply just three old friends (emphasis on the old) talking about the recent news in the NFL. What makes this podcast special is the back and forth banter between the 3 and the very strong opinionated riffs that can happen at any second and segments such as start, bench, cut (which can be anything from football related to debating whether or not you are a fan of bunghole) , different types of football related snake drafts and one of my personal favourites, film review. The pod is made up of three friends, NotJoe, the core of the pod who keeps things flowing and has a list of topics to talk about while also throwing some random interesting stats at you. Trevor, the sometimes drunk (memememento) uncle who isn't afraid to cause a ruckus. And Doug, a fountain of knowledge when it comes to college football, Cleveland browns history and good movies. Doug is my personal favourite as he is usually cool, calm and collected but will throw coins at you from his car if you're being a dick (rightfully so). The Podcast also has side characters who are brought up everyone in a while but you never hear from , but you still feel like you know them (NotJoes Wife, NotJoes Brother, Curtis and Trevor's old roommates). I really enjoy the communication with the podcast community via Instagram stories and dms, it's fun to know that you can say something and they will see it and possibly talk about it. Anyways this review is riffing almost as long as Trevor when a member of Gen Z says something stupid. With all that being said, listen to the pod, download the pod, leave a damn review. 5/5
I started following Not Joe on IG when he only had a couple hundred followers. When he announced his podcast I’m pretty sure I rolled my eyes and thought that he should just stick to memes. I finally gave in and started listening last August. I have to say, I wish I had started listening sooner. If you’re on the fence about listening, just do it. Something unique about this podcast is the off-season content. While similar pods grasp at straws for episode topics, Not Joe and the boys find ways to keep their listeners entertained. The episodes during football season are great as well. If you’re a degenerate gambler like I am there is an added bonus- Not Joe is a human jinx, so if you bet against his picks there’s a good chance you will make some money! Because no podcast is perfect, I’ll mention the only two downsides to this one. First, Not Joe’s jinx (or taint as he calls it) can work against you. If you hear him pick your team to win or if he compliments them in any capacity, you need to pause and start mentally preparing yourself. Your team will lose their next game or a key player will get injured. The other con is that Trevor is a Giants fan. While it could be worse and he could be a Cowboys fan, it’s still unfortunate. Especially when you agree with one of his takes. I mean, who wants to agree with a Giants fan? On the plus side, it was great listening to him slowly die inside as last season progressed! It filled my cold dead Philly heart with joy. That being said, this is easily the best football podcast out there.
Just like the movie, this podcast is a 10/10. Listening to you guys talk about how much you loved the movie brought a smile to my face multiple times. Top Gun is one of my Dad’s favorite movies and it made me happy that he really enjoyed Maverick. I watched the first Top Gun for the first time last year and watching the new one was an incredible experience. This is one of those movies where 20 years from now, I can tell my kids that this movie was iconic. Great show, keep up all the great work.
There’s just something about 3 guys who lack the requirements to professionally talk about football be so wrong, yet right all the time. Not to mention there’s just something about the podcast that makes it feel like you’re eavesdropping into a conversation of three friends who are just having a great time and you want to jump in with them. That might be why I watched every second of the top gun review episode having never watched a second of either top gun and not planning on watching either. I can imagine Trevor reading this and giving a stern psa for everyone to go watch it again especially to the younger generation that he seems to hate. But notjoe and not Joe’s wife have become parent figures to me through this podcast but I don’t even know their real names. And now the best for last is Doug simply because of his accuracy and abundance of knowledge that spreads throughout my ear lobes and into my brain. Personally, I think he deserves his own college football corner on the off nights of the hockey corner bc of how much I especially love his college football knowledge. And if you read all of this you should’ve just started listening to the podcast bc you would already have been hooked by now.
The production quality is low. The intelligence level of the conversations is average. The relatability is high, and that is this podcasts best feature. Tuning in to NotJoe, Doug, and Trevor talking football with inevitable tangents perfectly mirrors meeting up with my pals during the height of football season. Between changing steering wheels on air and fishing for content on the NotJoe meme page, these guys keep it fresh and entertaining. Definitely the best 1-2 hours of my week.
Used to subscribe to your twitch now I just listen to this while I play rocket league. Best podcast because you guys are chill. Thanks for that sticcer that one time
Bad takes on Mayo, good takes on football. #letrusscook #noodlearmedbrees #1PodcastInKazhakstan
I spent a good 30 minutes peeling a mediocre orange and it was worse than this podcast.
I listen weekly and my wife will occasionally hear some of it. She definitely understands why I listen and love the pod but is definitely convinced we all have Asperger’s with the amount of movie quotes we resort to as punch lines. “How do you all remember those lines??? So annoying!” Granted, we went to Denver last weekend and upon landing I looked out the airplane window and said “I thought the Rocky Mountains would be a little rockier than this.” I turned to her grinning expecting her to fully know that line! Nothing. No reaction. And honestly I’m just a waste here. More Sean Connery quotes from The Rock please and there should just by a pod dedicated to the new Top Gun movie the week it comes out.
Easily my favorite football podcast. My two passions are backpack hunting wilderness areas for deer and elk, and secondly football. What better way then to combine the two? I have spent many nights alone in the wilderness sitting in a tent listening to the soothing voice of not joe and the boys. I have spent countless hours hauling strenuous 100 pound packs of meat and shed antlers listening to ole not joe and the fellas. Heading out this weekend in hopes of tagging a trophy and as always will have my good friends Trevor, Doug, and Not joe there to keep me company. Keep up the good work boys!!
Do you like driving yellow sport cars? Do you like leaving stupid comments on yelp? are you a big fan of Urban Myers? Then this is the podcast for you. But honestly it’s my favorite podcast, it’s just a bunch of life long friends who have a great sense of humor and they talk about football. With real takes and opinions. They also have some really funny stories.
Somehow this is my favorite podcast. I am the epitome of these men’s least favorite person. Everything from my favorite team, my religion, my generation, my home state and my lifestyle. And yet here I am, rating it five stars. If that doesn’t say how good of a podcast it is, I don’t know what will. Five stars
The banter has a quality that hasn’t been heard since Beethovens 6th symphony in B flat. If you want to listen to them all a second time, try listening in 1/2 speed. It’s hilarious. Much love. Thanks guys. Keep up the good work.
This podcast has been my favorite for over a year. I listen to it in the shower, driving to work, and while making breakfast. It’s fun to listen to not only because of the football dialogue, but also because of the three guys’ personalities. You can tell they have been friends for a while, and their relationship translates perfectly to the podcast format.
Give it a shot. I’m not a podcast guy but this podcast made me rethink. NotJoe, Trevor and Doug are all hilarious. I’m a college student/nfl addict and I look forward to hearing these three banter every week. Even during the off-season they manage to include other relevant world news to talk about.
All 3 guys on the podcast are super funny and cool dudes who interact with fans on social media. Their football takes arent hot garbage either like a lot of sports media so that’s a 5/5 in my book.
It’s like listening to your (older, slightly more obsessed/informed) friends talk about football, but you’re that one quiet friend who never says anything. This definitely going to age well.
I listen to this podcast at work. I was chilling, sweeping off some asphalt when all of a sudden, the neighbors’ dogs started barking. I was like, “man dogs are crazy” but then I heard screaming. I was busy listening to three old guys talk about Derrick Henry and now I see this big old bulldog biting the leg of a rottweiler off. I was surprised nonetheless but now they moved on to talking about fantasy football. And let me tell you, my 1-5 team needs all the tips it can get. Unfortunately they were only talking about Derrick Henry’s fantasy at the time and there’s no way I’m getting him. The dogs ended up being fine. The victim just had to get stitches. Did this podcast save my life? Probably not but it’s good clickbait. 5 stars.
I always enjoy the stupid conversations held between notjoe & the boys. Have I ever learned a single thing about FOOTBALL? Not a chance. However I’ve gotten insight into all your lives and it makes me feel better about myself. 5 stars
Completely inconsistent and biased. Never really quite sure what they are talking about. Tend to only talk 50% football between tangents and other crap. Lots of random silences. 10/10 would recommend.
Great podcast with guys who like football as a whole but also their own teams. Very funny good personalities
Very chill and laid back, good entertainment value with funny commentary and jokes. It’s a nice place to hear things you may have missed if you love football and are too busy to rewatch games for read every stat. Very good football knowledge between them as well.
