On this special Sunday morning edition of Football 2 the MAX, Sean Garmer and Erik Watkins discuss the big win for the Kansas City Chiefs over the Los Angeles Chargers. They now sit one win, or a loss by a division foe, from clinching the AFC West. The guys breakdown the sudden surge by the Chiefs offense. The reappearance of Kareem Hunt. Plus, they also discuss the Detroit Lions win over the Chicago Bears too.
The guys did spend time previewing games that already happened on Sunday.
However, they end the show talking some non NFL news. This week, information came out from Brad Shepard that Vince McMahon is highly considering bringing back the XFL.

Then, news came out on Saturday that he’d bought trademarks to the United Football League. So, perhaps there’s even more validity to it.
In September of 2017, Alpha Entertainment applied to trademark the term “URFL, and VKM Ventures applied to trademark “United Football League,” “UFL,” and “For the Love of Football.”

The duo discuss if they think this actually happens. Plus, they converse on how a second run at the XFL could succeed. If you were a fan of the crazy league from 2001, be sure to listen to the last 20 minutes of the show.

Studied Journalism at the University of North Texas Born in Arkansas, his favorite college team is the Arkansas Razorbacks, but all of his professional loves come from the Dallas-Fort Worth area, where he spent 20 years of his life. So, that means Sean is a huge Dallas Cowboys and Dallas Mavericks supporter as well. Sean is an avid fan of watching football game film, learning about the history of NFL, and fantasy football. Most of his professional writing comes from spending years covering soccer in various forms, but he’s also covered football, wrestling, and video games as well.
is a native of North Texas. He is also a graduate of the University of North Texas with aspirations of a higher level of education. Like a majority of Texans, football is his sports passion. Ironically, his passion for the game sparked from his love of Madden 98. From that point on, he has poured hours into studying NFL history and game film. Gary is a student of the game and is a die hard Dallas Cowboys fan. His second sport is hockey, followed up by the rest of the American sports scene.
Erik started out with watching games and staying up late for Sunday and Monday night. It spread to college, and eventually just about every single sport in the book. By the time he graduated from UNF, all his friends and family thought Erik would be better off as a sportswriter. Perhaps a journalist, or a commentator than anything to do with math (boy were they right). So, after wandering around with a degree and looking for a job, he started a blog. The blog turned into some freelance work. After that, work led him right here talking about the game that he loves.
