Football 2 the MAX: Ezekiel Elliot Suspended Six Games, Sammy Watkins Traded

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?

Football 2 the MAX: Mitchell Trubisky Impresses, Deshone Kizer Throws Bombs, Full-Time Refs

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.
