Recorded September 18, 2018. Week two in the NFL (1:38) had some great games, some bad kickers, an amazing press conference, and a player who retired at halftime. The Steelers are a big mess, Pat Mahomes is the real deal, the Eagles lose to Ryan Fitzpatrick’s Bucs and the Jags took apart the Pats. What’s wrong with the Giants and will any Browns or Vikings kicker ever make a field goal? The new tackling rule reared its ugly head and Josh is wondering if Dez Bryant will ever sign with anyone. Meanwhile the NHL pre-season has started (25:45) with very different expectations this season for the Habs and Leafs. Erik Karlsson was finally traded. How will his move to the Sharks affect the balance of power in the West and how bleak is the situation for the Senators franchise?

Recorded September 1, 2018. The guys are joined by friend of the show Neil Schnurbach (@AssemblyNeil) to preview the upcoming NFL season. Are the Bears suddenly a playoff team with the acquisition of Khalil Mack? Can the Browns win a game or even become somewhat relevant? How dynamic can the Chiefs offense be? Which rookie quarterbacks can make an impact this season and which second year QBs can become stars? Will any of last years playoff teams struggle this year? Which up and coming teams are ready to become contenders? Does Jimmy G. have what it takes to lead the 49ers? Can the Patriots make it back to the Super Bowl (again)? Do the Eagles have what it takes to repeat? Of course there are some predictions, a discussion about some of the major rule changes and of course Neil brings some fancy stats like DVOA and Pythagorean wins.
