Deez Hoes Ain't Loyal! This week we welcome back onto the show sports journalist Steve O' Rourke from the 42.ie in Ireland. 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
