Charlie Pierce is on the road in Tuscon this week, but he found time to tackle all the week's biggest stories. Mario Williams and Calvin Johnson signed big contracts with Buffalo and Detroit, respectively, and Charlie will tell us which player will have a bigger impact next season. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers also made a splash in free agency, inking Pro Bowlers Carl Nicks and Vincent Jackson.  Does Charlie think they'll represent the NFC in next year's Super Bowl? He'll also tell us who the big winners were at the NBA trade deadline, and whether President Obama's predictions for the NCAA tournament will come true. All of that, plus Charlie's opinion on Andy Pettitte's family life, cancelled HBO shows, and 11-year-olds running bracket pools.

This segment aired on March 17, 2012.
