Hey Cam Newton, we know a woman that LOVES to talk bout routes!!
Joining us on the show this week is former Seattle Mist and national champion WR/FS Jessica Hopkins, of Legends Football League fame. We asked her for her thoughts on Cam Newton's recent comments, women in the NFL and the growth of the women's game across the globe.

We held our first ever Paddy Pigskin Book club session this week! Point of discussion: Tom Brady's new book the TB12 Method, full of nonsense and with virtually no medical or scientific references to back it up, naturally as a scientist I had to dive in and pick it apart with Barry. A few beers were had and we had a lot of fun going through it (check the avo ice cream recipe).

As he's a big Raiders fan we are breaking down the 4 games involving AFC West teams from Week 2 including the trials and tribulations of Chargers kicker YoungHoe. We also look ahead to Week 3 and hope to emulate last week's success and pick the winners of each of the 16 games. I round out the show with my third installment of our fantasy football segment "Paddy's Picks".
Finally some REAL FOOTBALL to talk about as the 2017 NFL season has begun! Some big upsets in opening week wrecked havoc on our panel's picks but thankfully more success was found in the fantasy advice feature Paddy's Picks. In this episode we discuss the results, stories and key injuries from Week 1 and predict all the Week 2 winners, with some craic in between. #lessslantmoreslainte
