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?
On this episode of Football 2 the MAX, Sean Garmer and Erik Watkins discuss the leak, with possible ties to the league itself about the Ezekiel Elliot domestic case. Could this be the final nail in the coffin for Zeke? Or does this just throw more confusion into the whole mess? What should the suspension be, if there is one? The guys debate.
More news coming at ya, with Jay Cutler signing with the Miami Dolphins. Anquan Boldin to the Buffalo Bills. The season ending injury bug bites for more teams. Plus, what does it say that Brock Osweiler, Tom Savage and Trevor Siemian are starting Preseason Week 1?
the Football 2 the MAX trio return, discussing the Hall of Game between the Dallas Cowboys and Arizona Cardinals.
Sean Garmer, Gary Vaughan and Erik Watkins wonder what can really be analyzed from the game? Who stood out on both sides in this one? How exciting is it to have Football back on the air? Plus, did Jerry Jones get too much attention over the other Hall of Famers?
The guys also discuss the big Ryan Tanehill injury. Is Jay Cutler the right fit for the Miami Dolphins? Is it a better place for Colin Kaepernick? And what's going on with him and the Baltimore Ravens? Is he going to be signed this year? The three debate on that.
Finally, they talk some injuries from training camp and if Ezekiel Elliot starts Week 1 for the Cowboys.
