Football 2 Futbol: NFL Week 14 Recap, NY Giants vs. Dolphins MNF Post-Game, & TNF Preview

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.)

Finally, we end things with a preview for the Thursday Night Football game between the Tampa Bay Bucs and the St. Louis Rams (2:06:00-2:12:50.)

Gary has his Fantasy Football Playoff waiver wire pickups  and we have our Top 5 Power Rankings and the Player of the Week as well. (2:12:50-End)

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.

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)

Football 2 Futbol: NFL Week 10 Recap, Examining the Week 11 Quarterback Changes & What is a NFL Catch?

We apologize for coming out a day later than usual, Sean had another internet outage on Monday that wasn't fixed until Tuesday morning. At least we have a podcast for you though. 

We start things right off with our NFL Week 10 Recap (4:35-1:21:45) looking at all the games, probably running through them a lot faster than usual, but still answering questions about each team and before we finish with that, we do a preview for the Thursday Night tilt (1:21:45-1:25:25) between the Tennessee Titans and Jacksonville Jaguars, which one of the two young QB's will lead their team to an important AFC South divisional win?  Find out who we choose right here. 

After that, we discuss the one year suspension of Aldon Smith and also take a look at all of the Quarterback changes (1:25:25-1:55:45) made this week, which one will yield the most positive results?  Could we see one of these guys become a permanent starter?  How long should the Denver Broncos sit Peyton Manning?  From Case Keenum to Brock Osweiler, we discuss all of those players and more. 

Randy takes us through the third College Football Playoff Rankings (1:55:45-2:00:55) and we take a look back at another crazy week on the University Gridiron. 

We move along to Gary's Fantasy Football pickups, the Top 5 Power Rankings, and the Player of the Week (2:00:55-2:11:00)

We end things with a discussion on "what exactly is a NFL catch" and examine some controversial plays and if they were actually a "catch" or not (2:11:00-End) 
00:0000:00

Football 2 Futbol: NFL Week 9 Preview, Browns vs. Bengals Post-Game, & More

the Detroit Lions woes after they fire more people. Then we go through all the games happening this week, discuss questions about each team, play games, and also have Fantasy Football related questions about the matchups as well.
