Probably the biggest talking point from the weekend's Gaelic football action was Cavan's defeat of Armagh

That has led to question marks over the future of Armagh boss Kieran McGeeney, at least in the eyes of ex-Meath star Graham Geraghty.

Ex-Mayo and Armagh footballer Billy Joe Padden joined Off The Ball tonight to talk about the situation with Armagh, the players and the manager as they look to salvage their summer in the qualifiers.

"They see him as a good coach and they've never said a word out of turn. But I definitely do think his presence intimidates players. Whether it's just by his force of personality or whether it's through the atmosphere he creates in a squad in terms of accountability, that maybe it's too much for some of these players," he said.
