The Gridiron and Beyond: Melissa Jacobs, a.k.a. "The Football Girl" (Ep. 31)


Formerly with ESPN and Sports Illustrated, Melissa Jacobs, the founder and managing editor of the footballgirl.com, joins Bob to discuss the increasing gender diversification at every level of football; from full-time female coaches in the NFL to players at the youth level.  Jacobs also talks about her colleagues covering the sport; the balance between highlighting the so-called 'do goodery' of today's players and examining the societal problems that often dominate the game's off-field headlines; and why she's looking forward to 'Hard Knocks' with Jon Gruden and the Raiders.
