Draft 2020: Safety

It’s fair to say the 2019 Rookie class was largely disappointing from a secondary perspective in their first year, especially when it came to safety. A class that looked to have two or three solid safety options for teams generally flattered to deceive, though some do show signs for promise...

“Got, got, need, need, need, got…”

Time for part two of our “every team needs…” and this time we’re talking defense. An area a lot of teams have beefed up in recent years, but some still haven’t got it right and some are still playing catch up. Who needs what? Who needs everything (Miami)? Who’s pretty...

You’re just soooooo needy

We’re back from our post season break (all of one week) and we’re looking at team needs ahead of free agency and the draft. In the first of two shows, we take a look at who needs help on the offensive side of things. Next week we’ll break it down...

300!

This. Is. Spar….. no, no it isn’t. It’s Gents HQ. But it IS our 300th episode! We spend it wisely as we kick off the new footballing year with a look at one of our favourite topics – cap space. Who has money to burn? Who needs to go to...

“Well, what I actually meant, was…”

It’s time for our now traditional “end of season” show where we roll the clock back to the beginning of September and review our amazingly accurately and insightful predictions and wild #OhISay punts. Unsurprisingly, they’re about as accurate as Marquette King. We also compare notes on our predicted award winners...

How ’bout them…

…Cheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeefs! The alternative working title for this podcast was “Therapy”. Dan and Duncan help Simon work through the pain as we look back at what was, for the neutral at least, an enthralling Super Bowl LIV. Footnote: it didn’t help. At all. Subscribe: iTunes | Android | RSS

The Superb Owl – Part Two

Yes, we’ve reassembled for the second time in quick succession (it’s almost as though we never left!) this week to bring you the second half of our Super Bowl special. This time around, it’s 49ers offense against the Chiefs defense. Can the Chiefs do something few have managed this year...

The Superb Owl – Part One

Yes, it’s our ornithological special and this year we’ve split it in to two. The show that is, not the owl. That would be cruel. In the first show, we look at the Chiefs offense and how they will match up against the 49ers defense. Can Saleh et al slow...

And the winner is…

…the ProBowl! Yes, we are all in on the ProBowl this year. We break down both AFC and NFC rosters, look at where the key matchups will be across the field and make our predictions on who will light up the fie….. Sorry, can’t keep that going! It’s the Awards...

The Fab Four

We’re almost there. Four teams are left as we hit Championship weekend and the race for Miami. In a now seemingly rare occurrence we have the whole crew assembled to break down both the games and take a wild stab in the dark as to who will face off for...
