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Football 2 the MAX: Eagles and Browns Trade, Josh Norman Franchise Tag Rescinded, & Off-Season Analysis: Entire NFC East

Another week closer to the NFL Draft and another crazy deal happened as well. This time for the number two pick in the draft went to another team. The Eagles and Browns trade now sees the Eagles poised to take one of the Quarterbacks, while the Browns can stock up on picks. It is even possible that the Browns trade down again before it is all said and done.

There’s also the big news of Josh Norman being untendered by the Carolina Panthers and allowed to become an unrestricted free agent. We

discuss where he could land and if this shakes up the draft at all.

Finally, we end our NFL Off-Season Analysis by looking at the entire NFC East in one show. Last Word on Sports Writer Quinton Mayo makes his debut on the podcast talking about the Washington Redskins, Wayne Curtis joins us to talk Dallas Cowboys, Brandon Biskobing returns to blab about the New York Giants, and Anthony Rouh makes another appearance to give his perspective on the big trade and his Philadelphia Eagles.

So, it should be a packed show and we will return on Tuesday morning with our huge 2016 NFL Draft Preview, which also includes our mock draft of the first round as well.

Football 2 Futbol: NFL Super Bowl 50 Preview Part 2 & NFL News

I want to apologize upfront for the audio issues on this episode. The studio we use to record our live podcasts updated and apparently created problems for us that I (Sean) couldn't hear until the final product was created.

I can't do anything about this popping sound that happens when Randy and Gary talk, I sound clear the whole show though. This will be fixed for our next episode on Sunday night though.

If you want to listen to this anyway, the description and timestamps are

below.

We kick things off by discussing some of the NFL news that's been going around with Johnny Manziel and the situation with his girlfriend, the Rooney rule instituted for women involving executive positions, DeMarco Murray being uncomfortable in Philadelphia, and Colin Kapernick wanting out of San Francisco.

Then we finish things out with the our Super Bowl 50 Preview Part 2.

This is where we discuss the Denver Broncos offense vs. the Carolina Panthers defense. Can Peyton Manning outdo this Panthers front seven? Will it be turnover city for the Broncos offense? How many sacks could the Panthers get on the Broncos QB? We discuss and try to answer all that the best we can.

We kick things off with a discussion on the move of the Rams back to Los Angeles and we also talk about all the recent coaching hires that have occurred since the last time we did a podcast. Can Hue Jackson really turn the Cleveland Browns around? Will the promotions for the Bucs and Giants really carry them to the next level? What about Chip Kelly in San Francisco? Does this mean Collin Kapernick is a Quarterback in the NFL again? We discuss all of this and more.

Then we finish things

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.)

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

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.
