Playbook is an X's and O's football show with an entertaining flair. Playbook goes into the NFL Films room to examine a head coach's game film. In its original format, it was a 30-minute program hosted every weeknight during the NFL season and playoffs. In its new format, it is a one-hour program on Thursday and Friday, each day centering on either the AFC (Thursday) or the NFC (Friday).


Paul Burmeister was the host. The analysts were Sterling Sharpe, Solomon Wilcots, Mike Mayock, Brian Baldinger and Butch Davis.

In the new edition, Brian Baldinger, Joe Theismann and Sterling Sharpe host, with guest hosts, usually players on their bye week, occasionally coming on the program.

Cancellation and Rebranding

The program was cancelled when NFLN revamped its programming lineup in 2006. Elements of the show have been seen on NFL Total Access and NFL Replay. The show was brought back for the 2007 season with a new format, new hosts, and new time slot.

The show currently has 2 versions Playbook AFC and Playbook NFC.
