In this episode of the Necessary Roughness Podcast, host Nikolas Donadic dives into the NFL regular season's Week 2 matchups. He also can't stop talking about Mike Glennon and what could've been, with some new weekly accolades. Enjoy the show and join us next Saturday afternoon for the following episode!
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.
Sean, Gary, and Randy discuss at length the Bills and Jets TNF game. Then they preview and give predictions on the rest of the slate of games for Sunday and Monday to come.
NFL Free Agency has died down to normal levels at this point, but there are still some moves to talk about since the last time we had a podcast. There's also some NFL rule changes that have been made permanent as well.
We also continue our Off-Season series, as we take a look at the NFC North, beginning with Patrick Ketza giving us the lowdown about the Chicago Bears and Brennan Underwood telling us everything we need to know about the Minnesota Vikings.
Then we end things by talking
about some of the action during the first weekend of the 2016 NCAA Tournament.

(52:50-1:18:20) Includes Interview) Chicago Bears
(1:18:20-1:41:15) Minnesota Vikings
(1:41:15-End) March Madness Round 1 and 2 Recap
We kick things off with a short post-game for the Monday Night Football shootout between the New York Giants and Miami Dolphins (6:05-18:45.) Have the Giants finally found their groove? Is the Miami Dolphins defense overrated? And what now for the Dolphins now that they are done in the playoffs race.
Then we get into the main portion of the program with our NFL Week 14 Recap (18:45-2:06:00,) where we discuss what led to the win, what led to the loss for each game, analyze some tough decisions, and answer questions about the teams that matter. Plus another look at the crazy NFL playoff race in both conferences too. (We do have a call-in during the middle of this that calls to talk about his Buffalo Bills from 58:45-1:14:30. So that's why the Recap portion went a little longer than normal.)

We kick things off today with a short post-game on the Thursday Night Football game between the Green Bay Packers and the Detroit Lions (2:00-10:05.) Did that hail mary catch save the Packers season? Will this be a loss that haunts the Lions the rest of the way? We discuss those things and more.
After that, we get into the main portion of the show with our NFL Week 13 Preview (10:05-1:12:45.) We go game by game asking questions about each team, playing some games, and also answering some
tough fantasy questions as well, while also making predictions on each game too.

We kick things off today with a short post-game on the Baltimore Ravens vs. Cleveland Browns Monday Night Football game (5:45-20:20.) The game was a close one up to the final play and the Browns even had to bring in Austin Davis to replace Josh McCown. Should the Browns just use these final games to evaluate Austin Davis instead of even thinking about Johnny Manziel? Who should Baltimore Ravens fans and coaches be looking at as nice pieces for next season? We discuss these things and more.
Then we get into the main portion of our program with our NFL Week 12 Recap (20:20-1:35:35.) Where we go game by game discussing the keys to the wins and losses. We also ask questions about all the teams that played and take a look at the muddy playoff picture in both conferences. Who could be those wildcard teams at the end of the season? We try to figure out that out and more.
Randy takes us through the final proper week of the College Football (1:35:35-1:41:50) season and we take an early look at some of the Conference Championship games too.
We finish things out with Gary's Fantasy Football pickups for Week 13, our Top 5 Power Rankings, and our Player of the Week as well (1:41:50-End.)
Football 2 Futbol: NFL Week 12 Preview, NFL Thanksgiving Games Recap, & Is the parody in the NFL actually good?
We kick things off by doing a recap of the three NFL on Thanksgiving Day games (3:55-23:10) that occurred and wonder if anyone left on the Carolina Panthers schedule is going to beat them.
Then we get into the main part of the podcast for our NFL Week 12 Preview where we ask questions about each team, and of course make predictions on each game as well. This went from (23:10-1:28:38, around the 1:13:00 mark we had a listener call-in to the show, which took the segment to the time listed. He talked to us about his Philadelphia Eagles for a bit and we also discussed the Johnny Manziel benching situation there.)
Coming into Week 12, 23 out of 32 teams are either at 500 or below it. Obviously, there are week's left to play in the season, but this can't be what the NFL wants can it? So, we discuss the NFL's parody and if it really is as good as it is perceived to be. (1:28:38-1:35:25)
We finish things out by giving our predictions on the big College Football games that happened on Saturday (1:35:25-End)
Sean, Gary, and Randy kick things off with a short post-game for the Thursday Night Football game between the Tennessee Titans and the Jacksonville Jaguars. We discuss the things that led to the win for the Jags and the loss for the Titans. We also wonder if the Titans season is over and if Jaguars really proved they could win the AFC South with this big win.
After that, we get into our NFL Week 11 Preview, where we answer general questions and fantasy football questions about each team, as
well as, give an actual prediction on each game too.
