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.

Football 2 the MAX: NFL Annual Meeting, Off-Season Analysis: Bears & Vikings, & March Madness

NFL Free Agency has died down to normal levels at this point, but there are still some moves to talk about since the last time we had a podcast. There's also some NFL rule changes that have been made permanent as well.

We also continue our Off-Season series, as we take a look at the NFC North, beginning with Patrick Ketza giving us the lowdown about the Chicago Bears and Brennan Underwood telling us everything we need to know about the Minnesota Vikings.

Then we end things by talking

about some of the action during the first weekend of the 2016 NCAA Tournament.

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.)

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.

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)

Football 2 Futbol: NFL Week 11 Preview

Sean, Gary, and Randy kick things off with a short post-game for the Thursday Night Football game between the Tennessee Titans and the Jacksonville Jaguars. We discuss the things that led to the win for the Jags and the loss for the Titans. We also wonder if the Titans season is over and if Jaguars really proved they could win the AFC South with this big win.

After that, we get into our NFL Week 11 Preview, where we answer general questions and fantasy football questions about each team, as

well as, give an actual prediction on each game too.

Randy takes us through the big games happening this week in College Football and we make predictions on those to round out the show.

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)

Football 2 Futbol: NFL Week 10 Preview, Are Fan Duel and Draft Kings really illegal?

We kick things off today with a post-game for the Thursday Night Football game between the Buffalo Bills and the New York Jets (3:00-14:25.) Randy will surely have a lot to say about this one after the Jets blew plenty of chances. Should the Jets have kicked the field goal with over three minutes left? Are the Bills legit contenders after this win? We ponder these questions and more.

Then we get into the main portion of our program with a full NFL Week 10 Preview (14:25-1:09:10.) We

discuss a question or two about every game happening on Sunday, including potential key Fantasy Football matchups you should pay attention to as well. So, if you don't listen to anything else, don't miss our NFL Week 10 Preview.

Randy leads us through the big games happening in College Football Week 11 (1:09:10-1:23:45) and we discuss the second week of the College Football Playoff Rankings as well.

We then end things with a conversation about whether or not Draft Kings and Fan Duel should really be considered illegal (1:23:45-End.)
