Football 2 Futbol: Chip Kelly Fired, NFL Week 17 Preview & Final College Bowls Preview

Due to the NFL regular season nearly coming to a close and another holiday happening on Thursday night into Friday, we are basically doing two podcasts on one night. Don't worry, we will still be doing all the things we normally do, plus talk about some of the big news of the day like Chip Kelly fired from his position as Philadelphia Eagles head coach and more.

We kick things off with a short post-game for the Cincinnati Bengals and Denver Broncos Monday Night Football game. This leads

directly into discussing if the Broncos could go far in the playoffs and how AJ McCarron's injury will affect the Bengals going forward. Then we end things here by talking about Peyton Manning and if we believe the HGH reports (10:00-26:05)

After that, we do a mixture of looking back at NFL Week 16, discussing the games that mattered, our level of concern for each of the playoff teams, and we also do a full NFL Week 17 Preview in here as well making predictions for all of the games and how they affect the playoff scenarios. We also talk about Chip Kelly Fired as Eagles coach, Gus Bradley staying as Jacksonville Jaguars coach, and more in there as well. (26:05-1:47:07)

Then we finish things out with our Top 5 Power Rankings, our Player of the Week and the final College Bowl predictions as well (1:47:07-End.)

Football 2 Futbol: NFL Week 16 Preview & College Bowls Preview Part 3

This edition of the podcast is coming out a little early due to the holidays, so we basically just start out doing the NFL Week 16 Preview (10:00-1:14:45.)

We discuss and breakdown all the games happening this week, answer questions about the teams that matter, take a look at some key fantasy matchups that will be important for those Fantasy Football Championship games and more.

the Bahamas Bowl to the Quick Lane Bowl. We will do the rest on our NFL Week 16 Recap podcast on Tuesday morning.

Football 2 Futbol: NFL Week 15 Recap, Lions vs. Saints MNF Post-Game, & CFB Bowls

We kick things off with a short post-game for the Monday Night Football shootout between the Detroit Lions and New Orleans Saints (6:00-17:10.) Even though it didn't matter for playoff contention, there are questions facing the coaching staffs for both teams. We try to answer those as well as discuss some key points about the game as well.

After that, we get into the main portion of our program with our NFL Week 15 Recap (17:10-1:18:44) where we discuss all the games, breakdown the keys

to the win and the loss, answer questions about the teams that matter, and look at some other things too. Don't miss our NFL Week 15 Recap.

Randy goes through the College Bowl games that have happened to this point and we make predictions from the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl until the GoDaddy.com Bowl (1:18:44-1:25:07) and leave the rest for our NFL Week 16 Preview podcast on Thursday morning.

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 Recap, Cowboys winning ugly on MNF, & College Football Bowl Games

We kick things off by doing a short post-game for the ridiculous Monday Night Football game between the Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins (4:30-14:45.) We wonder if Washington is still the favorite in the division after their last minute loss and if the Cowboys should actually have some belief after the big win.

After that, we get into the main portion of our program where we go game by game and do a full NFL Week 13 Recap (14:45-2:09:35) asking questions about every team, look at the

playoff standings, who played well, who didn't, and who's on the way to playing well into January.

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 11 Recap, Bills vs. Patriots MNF Post-Game, & NFL on Thanksgiving Day Preview

We kick things off with a short post-game for the Monday Night Football game between the Buffalo Bills and the New England Patriots.

Then we get into the main part of the podcast for the NFL Week 11 Recap. We go game by game and discuss what happened that led to each win and loss, ask questions about each team, and even have a discussion on who is the most complete team in the league right now. Is it the Carolina Panthers? Could it be the Arizona Cardinals? How bout the Cincinnati Bengals?

Is there another team in the mix? Find out by listening right here.

We move on to the College game with Randy taking us through the big match-ups that happened in Week 12 of the College Football season.

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)
