Football 2 the MAX: Tom Brady Appeal, Jalen Ramsey, & Superbowl Draft

We are back once again to talk about what’s going on in the NFL. The Jacksonville Jaguars got some bad news that Jalen Ramsey has a slight meniscus tear in his right knee and it could be minor or be a major issue, we discuss that, as well as more on a potential move to Las Vegas for the Oakland Raiders, the latest in Tom Brady’s deflategate suspension, fans not liking Aaron Rodgers hard counts, people not being big fans of Sam Bradford, and a few other things.

After this, we go through Round

Robin style and rank the teams 1 to 32 on who has the best chance to win the Super Bowl during the 2016 season. Will the Broncos repeat again? Could the Patriots bounce back? Were the Carolina Panthers a one year wonder? Is it Carson Palmer’s time in Arizona? Where does your team rank? Tune in to find out.

Football 2 the MAX: Zach Mettenberger Released & burning NFL questions

We are starting to hit that lull in the off-season, where not a whole lot is really happening. There is some news to talk about though and we cover as much as we can of it.

Zach Mettenberger has been released by the Titans, we discuss if he has any potential landing spots, there’s some injury news, as Shaq Lawson has to have shoulder surgery and may not be ready to start the season, Sammy Watkins also has a broken bone in his foot as well. The Atlanta Falcons made some waves with their

possibly cheaply priced concessions, Jason Jones signs with the Dolphins and Anquan Boldin could go to the Titans.

We also keep things going with our burning questions on some NFL teams. What questions do we ask? Tune in to find out.

Football 2 the MAX: NFL Free Agency Fever & 2016 NFL Off-Season Analysis: Jaguars & Titans

Well, the first couple of days of Free Agency have certainly lived up to the hype. Many players changed teams and there are some that stayed with their teams. We discuss as much of those as we possibly can in this edition of the podcast.

We also continue on our 2016 NFL Off-Season Analysis series by ending our look at the AFC with the two teams at the bottom of the AFC South. Jimmy Christopher let's us in on what's happening with the Tennessee Titans and we also cover the

Jacksonville Jaguars as well.

So, a jampacked show full of stuff to talk about. This should certainly be a good one.

(2:40-36:55) All the moves that have happened in Free Agency so far.

(36:55-59:20 Includes Interview) Tennessee Titans

(59:20-End Includes Interview) Jacksonville Jaguars

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)

Football 2 Futbol: NFL Week 13 Preview, Packers vs. Lions MNF Miracle, & College Football Conference Championships

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 finish things out by making predictions on the huge College Football Conference Championship games (1:12:45-End) happening on Saturday as well.

00:0000:00

Football 2 Futbol: NFL Week 12 Recap, Ravens vs. Browns MNF Post-Game, & College Football Week 13

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)
