After a rather wacky Week 1, Touchdown Wire’s Doug Farrar and Mark Schofield had all kinds of things to discuss in their Week 2 preview podcast. We started with a review of Mark’s brilliant article on how quarterbacks looked to beat two-high coverage in Week 1, and went from there.

Among the topics discussed:

  • How Jason Garrett actually did something to help Daniel Jones, and why he should do it again against Washington;

  • Why the only explanation for Matt Nagy’s quarterback decision-making is that he hated football in a past life;

  • Why the Texans could be a tough out for the Browns, and why the Browns have a problem both creating and stopping explosive plays;

  • How the Colts, who are recovering from what Seattle offensive coordinator Shane Waldron did to them, now have to deal with Waldron’s former teacher, and Matthew Freaking Stafford;

  • Why the Dolphins would be wise to match Pittsburgh’s no-blitz template against Josh Allen;

  • How Zach Wilson showed us a ton under pressure (both good and bad);

  • How Nick Sirianni set Jalen Hurts and DeVonta Smith up for success at an optimal level;

  • Why Derek Carr may want to be more cautious against the Steelers than he was against the Ravens;

  • Why the Panthers’ defense could give Jameis Winston and Sean Payton a case of heartburn;

  • The one thing Jacksonville’s coaching staff needs to give Trevor Lawrence;

  • Why Kirk Cousins could be in bug trouble against Arizona’s multiple and newly-effective defense;

  • Why we know nothing about Atlanta’s new offense under Arthur Smith, and why we may learn nothing when the Falcons have to deal with the Buccaneers;

  • How Todd Downing needs to channel his predecessor if the Titans are to avoid an 0-2 start;

  • Why the Ravens are incredibly vulnerable against the Chiefs on both sides of the ball;

  • And the one thing that could spell trouble for Aaron Rodgers beyond his Week 1 disasterbacle against the Saints.
