Week 10 wonders

What a weekend that was in the NFL. Here’s my rundown on some games that caught my eye. Panthers vs Steelers: Big performance from the Steelers. This game should have been competitive but it really, really wasn’t. I fancied the Panthers in this one but after what was an impressive...

I agree. Me too! And me!!

We’re headlong in to the weekend’s action of Week 10, and there is a lot of agreement at Gents HQ this week! We have the sleepy time review of a somewhat one sided affair from Thursday, which of course we all saw coming. Honest. So who else gets the “Unanimous...

The “Lets make it up as we go along” Award goes to…

We’re back as we cross the halfway mark for the season already, and that means it’s time for some note quite so, but still too, early awards! Yes, we dish out the awards as we think they would stand as of right now as well as shoehorning in one or...

Why we should all be watching Carolina

There is a team whose offense is completely flying under the radar at the moment and it’s a great tragedy that they are. Patrick Mahomes delights us weekly with gaudy passing numbers, skilful throws and getting the best out of an outstanding cast of pass catchers. Sean McVay delights us...

Predictions – Week 10

Well, we’re heading toward the business end of the season at an alarming rate and it’s good to know we’re still capable of pulling a mediocre week out of the bank when it comes to predictions! After a sterling Week 8 from everyone, we’re back to overing around the .500...

Fritz Pollard: A True NFL Trailblazer

The NFL has a chequered history with race and in particular black players. While it didn’t go as far as other sports in America by excluding black players from playing the NFL is not without its share of shame. There were no black players in the NFL between 1933 and...

Are the Texans a sleeper?

It’s been an eventful week in the NFL. We had big moves on the trade deadline and the first head coach to bite the dust. We all heard in the lead up to Tuesday that some names were on the trading block, so even if it wasn’t a surprise who...

We’re all for the 1 point safety!

We’re here for part 2 of this week’s show, and we’re straight on the case of possibly the most obscure scoring play in football courtesy of Dan. We have the sleepy time review of Thursday Night’s barnstormer of a game (Simon’s words – Ed) as well as all the match...

It’s all down hill from here…

In to the second half of the season (already) and we’re here to talk you through all the news, deadline day trades, and news about 2019 London games. We also take a look at the Thursday Night match up (through our fingers) at the last Battle of the Bay. Probably....

Predictions – Week 9

Finally we’re hitting our groove! Either that, or the League is becoming a LOT more predictable! Everyone nailed a solid week, with even the worst record being an impressive 10-4 on the week. There are some fascinating games this week, with several being “flip of a coin” close in terms...
