On this episode of Football 2 the MAX, Sean Garmer and Erik Watkins go through a busy Monday of news. While also doing the usual Monday Night Football breakdown for the Kansas City Chiefs 29-19 victory over the Denver Broncos. Are the Chiefs now back on track? What do we make of their redzone play calling? And is it time for the Broncos to try someone else at quarterback?

Ezekiel Elliot loses his chance at getting the preliminary injunction. So, he’s suspended again. Does he keep fighting for that emergency stay? And what does it mean for the Dallas Cowboys with their schedule coming up? How many games do the guys see the Cowboys winning with Zeke out?

The San Francisco 49ers made a big trade for New England Patriots quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. Will this be the cog that finally gets Kyle Shanahan and the 49ers some wins? What expectations should fans have for him? And how many games do we see him winning?

There’s also the Duane Brown trade, and the guys give their thoughts on the rest of the NFL Week 8 action as well.

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.
