On this episode of Football 2 the MAX, Sean Garmer and Erik Watkins have their TNF breakdown. The Philadelphia Eagles defense pestered Cam Newton and nullified their run game. How good is this team? And could they run away with the NFC East? How can the Panthers avoid Cam throwing for 52 times in a game? And is using Christian McCaffrey more the answer? We discuss that, plus Carson Wentz big game as well.

After that, we discuss the latest in the Ezekiel Elliot situation. Does the NFLPA file another appeal? Or should Elliot just serve his suspension from here?

Finally, the guys talk about the rest of the news and notes, inside their NFL Week 6 Preview. This includes what impact Adrian Peterson could make for the Arizona Cardinals. Does Big Ben get back on track? And more.

Sean Garmer

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.

Gary Vaughan

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 Watkins

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.
