Eugene McGee: Time to panic

I can see a bit of panic setting in within the Dublin football camp before much longer if the team keeps turning on the style like they have done in their opening three league victories against Armagh, Cork and, in particular, Kerry.

Why? Because it will dawn on Pat Gilroy and his players that there is too much praise being heaped on the Dublin team too quickly, and they will have to start talking down their achievements.

You see, this is the GAA way of doing things. All teams and managers play down, in a nice way, their own achievements; terrified, it seems, of having the word 'favourites' attached to them.
