After some technical difficulties, the boys are back with the latest off-season installment of the Any Given Monday NFL Podcast! They cover the latest news and notes happening around the NFL, before continuing with their position reviews. In this episode, Dunc and Nads delve into inside linebackers, and edge rushers - with a lot of similarities, and some divisive differences.
They also continue their QB rankings, covering 16-9 this week, saving the all important top 8 for the next episode. Who comes down where on Andrew Luck? Marcus Mariota? Who's better - Eli or Philip Rivers?
Finally, Dunc takes the Slam in a bit of a lighthearted direction this week, determining the all important question: can the 2008 Detroit Lions beat the 2007 New England Patriots?

Goodbye Jeffrey Loria, hello Jeets! That's right Derek Jeter jas bought the Marlins to end that long, dragged out team sale. Well, him and a dozen or so other deep pocketed folks looking to get in on sports team ownership. This pushes out one of the worst owners in pro sports and replaces him with a baseball legend... and many other investors.
Unfortunately for this podcast, Bryce Harper went down with an ugly looking knee injury thanks to slipping on a damp first base. Joe Hojnacki and Greg Hessen take the time to mourn the loss of the podcast's favorite player and assess the comments of Scott Boras, who wants... less slippery bases.
On this Football 2 the MAX EXTRA, Sean Garmer, Gary Vaughan and Erik Watkins go in-depth for over one hour discussing all things Ezekiel Elliot Suspension.
They try to take as many angles as possible, from a legal standpoint, the league's point of view, the Dallas Cowboys and more. How does this affect the team off-the-field? Who starts at running back? And could this even be an issue on defense for the Cowboys too? Does the suspension ultimately go down on appeal? The trio cover it all here.
After that, at about the 1 hour and 10 minute mark, they get into the three-team trade, which wasn't officially a three-team trade. Can it officially be called a rebuilding year for the Buffalo Bills? What does the addition of Sammy Watkins do for Jared Goff? Can Ronald Darby be an answer for the Philadelphia Eagles defensive back depth? Is this a downgrade for Tyrod Taylor? And can Jordan Matthews help the receiving core.
Finally, Ryan Tanehill officially has ACL surgery, could this be his last year as a Miami Dolphins quarterback?
This season is introducing a strange phenomenon in Major League Baseball. For one weekend, the teams will wear goofy looking jerseys and players will be given full reign to be as creative and silly as they can be with their looks. That's right, 2017 Player Weekend is almost upon us and Joe Hojnacki and Greg Hessen have all the insanity covered. The pair talk about the best and worst nickname jerseys and judge the players on one thing, and on thing alone: their ability to have fun.
On this episode of Football 2 the MAX, Sean Garmer and Erik Watkins discuss some of the games from Wednesday and Thursday of Preseason Week 1.
How much can we really take away from Mitchell Trubisky's performance against the Denver Broncos? What about Paxton Lynch? Did anyone else standout on either side?
DeShaun Watson certainly carried with him his running ability from Clemson, but what about his passing? How'd he do against the Carolina Panthers? Plus, should D'Onta Foreman push Lamar Miller to start? Sean also has thoughts on Deshone Kizer's first preseason game, the improving Cleveland Browns defense. Not to mention, Erik talks Miami and Atlanta too.
Finally, they finish with some news. How big of a help is Martavais Bryant for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Is the NFL going to improve with full-time refs this season? We ponder these questions, and more.
