never done this before but lol chiefs.
Really like that sort of gliding tail back running style.
Terrible call at the end of the first half though, the risk/reward for a short pass at that point and in that part of the field just isn't worth it. Granted, seeing Charles fumble when running it at the end of the game shows how even a run wouldn't have been 100% secure, but surely it's better to try and bust off a big run (especially with Charles), and if it fails go in with a 7 pt lead.
decent article about the 2009 Florida Gators and their subsequent travails (Percy Harvin, Brandon Spikes, Aaron Hernandez, Tim Tebow, Riley Cooper) http://espn.go.com/college-football/story/_/id/13660781/urban-meyer-tim-tebow-aaron-hernandez-percy-harvin-rise-fall-florida-gators

Going with Chargers v Bengals for the early game, 1PM EST with everyone else watching Patriots v Bills is Dalton's time to shine! Will try and watch Cowboys v Eagles after that if Gamepass lets me because the other evening games both look too depressing.
Bears - Cards then Eagles-Cowboys on the laptop.
You'd have to be a masochist to watch either of the other evening gams as a neutral
With only 3 games in the evening slot Redzone seems less necessary so it can go either way from week to week. Eagles-Cowboys should be an entertaining game this week.
"Rookie WR David Johnson's first three NFL touches so far for the Cardinals:
Week 2: 108-yard kickoff return TD
Week 1: 55-yard Rec TD
Week 1: 43-yard kickoff"
let's opine, people
Would have preferred it if they looked this bad before I dropped DeAngelo Williams but there you go.
Jimmy Clausen making Jay Cutler look like Tom Brady
Including mine :(
throwing way another game
To blow double digit 4th quarter leads in back-to-back games.
It was just so inevitable. Honestly, what is Preston Parker playing at? Why did we keep him ahead of James Jones? Does Reuben Randle feel like turning up in his contract year? Why do we like alliterative WRs so much?
Defence is looking fierce again, 4 sacks today. Johnson being back at right end is massive because teams just can't block him, Atkins and Dunlap at once.
Seem to be a lot of high scoring pastings being handed out; Cardinals, Steelers and Patriots all look likely to score over 40 today.
Bears suck then.
This has been an utter horror so far.
I mean, my perverse underdog loyalty.
for now we are overdogs for a bit.
Otherwise we'd pretty much all be done already.
that was pretty grim all round by the hawks. Sherman had a mare, Lynch with nothing to work with. Wilson able to get a few drives together but then poor penalties and fumbles at key moments.
Good chance of a team topping the division with a losing record at this rate now Romo is injured.
Think my various Survivor games are already over (cheers, Baltimore!), and there's freaky looking results all over the place. Such is the sport we all foolishly follow.
Obviously, being the masochist I am, I settled in to watch the Lions yesterday for three and a half hours of the grimmest, most disappointing athletic spectacle I can remember watching. There was almost literally nothing good about what they did yesterday. Calvin scored one beautiful touchdown that showed why he's so amazing (his awareness of where he is and determination to score his breath taking), but even he was dropping passes, plus we were only targeting him on shitty 5-yard slant routes anyway. Tate couldn't get open. Ebron was barely there. And then there's the running game... our leading rusher for the day racked up 20 yards, and that was Matthew Fucking Stafford, who, all credit to him, kept going despite the fact he was literally turned into a blood-stained mess by his pisspoor excuse for an offensive line. He looked fucked. He was fucked. All this talk about our offence being full of weapons, it doesn't matter, because every play is a stillborn mess. We need to scrap the entire playbook (#firelombardi) at this rate.
At least we had our defence last year, now even that is a liability. Even when we get Levy back, he's only one guy, he's not going to change all the blown coverages or the weak-arse edges we have on the line. I know it's early in the season, and we currently have the same record as the Seahawks, Ravens, Eagles and Saints, but I don't see us getting much better, especially when the next two games are the Broncos (Miller and Ware could actually murder Stafford) and the Seahawks in Seattle.
Fuck this shit.
The Vikings were dominant, the points difference would have been bigger had it not been for the ridiculous defensive penalties they kept committing. The Lions obviously played badly, but it was still encouraging to see the Vikings play like that. Their defence was nasty, Stafford was getting beaten up so badly. And the O-line actually played well! Hopefully this means that week one was an aberration.
My favourite moment was gritty FB Zach Line's 1 yard dive for a score. Such a lunch pail player.
So gutting, Cutler was looking really good (9/9 completions) until Cutlering so hard his body couldn't take it. After it looked like the bears were turning a corner (pulling back level against a good team, even after conceding a k/o return TD), that pick 6 and injury happen, and then the team just tanked. Clausen showing how Cutler is actually a good QB (relatively so), although massively overpaid. Secondary is a train wreck, again, Amos is the only bright spot.
Langford is looking good though, tbh all the drafts from April who've been playing are looking good.
Next week vs Seahawks is a bit of a write off, other than continuing progress vs run game and trying to get the secondary going, aim has got to be to get Cutler healthy for the Raiders at home the week after - KC away after that will be slim pickings, and can't go into Detroit away (what a massive game that'll be, for those two fanbases) with an 0-5 record. Well, they can, but eeeeesh....
Can you imagine, both 0-5? At least someone will get out of the gate.
Urgh, I'm going to go back to thinking about a man fucking a pig to clean out my head.
Or is this just a standard amount of start-of-season uncertainty and freak results?
I remember the Colts, Seahawks and Patriots all having relatively shaky starts last season, but I don't remember the Colts and Seahawks looking quite so vulnerable. Cowboys and Lions also looking like they have a lot of work to do.
it will settle down
They're looking solid, even with benching Hill.
I think the colts will be OK if they can sort out these penalty flags, their division is just so weak, but the seahawks are a worry, especially with that o-line. I'd imagine they'll sort it out though, and the next two weeks vs bears then lions at home will help. First two games were away to one of the best defences and then the best offence tbf.
Green Bay look like as long as Rodgers is OK, it doesn't matter - losing their top receiver for both games and their top back for the majority of one, and still scoring nigh on 60 points.
Patriots look terrifying. Giving up quite a few points, but doesn't matter atm if you're scoring 75,000 each game
They're another team who got to the Conference Championship game then spent free agency adding to the skill positions rather than addressing the deficiencies in the spine of the team (notably the O-Line and the pass rush). I don't think they'll quite reach that level of disaster because of the absolute state of the AFC South but 8-8 doesn't seem out of the question.
I mean, how's your luck?
obviously there's more to Dallas, but real potential for 3 and 0, and looking at those first three games beforehand, no one would have credited it.
I mean, so much can and will change as the season wears on, but much cause for optimism.
I just picked them up from waivers, swapped for the Miami D (...)
Will they be good enough to hold through their week 5 bye though?
Or so I've heard.
I think the Bears are gonna be one of the teams to follow this season
but I really like the way that the Giants' helmets (lol helmets) catch the light, gives off this great electric blue colour. Conversely, can't stand the Cowboys' equivalent, reminds me of those terrible silver glitter guitars.
Seahawks spring to mind.
Through the proper shiny ones some college teams have are also cool.
Some of the college uniforms are extraordinary. I guess if you're pulling in crowds of 100,000+ and spending nothing on the athletes' salaries, you've got to find something to spend your money on.
not nearly enough appreciation for my links to leonard fournette and the funny Notre Dame injury upthread.
I'm wasted on you all
Or will be shortly, with no new deal. Even as a non-Seahawks fan, woohoo!
and glad he didn't get a new deal.
Would've been nice if he'd held out til after the Steelers play them though.
Obviously I could look them up, but I don't really care. Just interested in how fast you can go from being the future of a franchise to washed up in the NFL.
Ponder got released by the Raiders :'). I was actually a supporter of his in his early days but his issues turned out to be fundamental flaws rather than growing pains.
Dunno about Kolb, is he not a backup somewhere?
He was competing to be the starter at the time, claiming that he had joined the Bills to 'win the Super Bowl. Period'.
and has fluctuated between being a QB and a WR during his brief NFL career. He is currently at the Panthers as their third string QB and occasional WR. Tim Tebow must be quite jealous of him.
I'll stake my reputation on it!
(assuming the Cowboys are now in trouble). And if it's the Giants, then obviously it'll be time for Eli to shine once again.
Congrats fidel, the Superbowl's pretty much in the bag! Your reputation survives unscathed!
Wait until you're 4-7 before commencing your Super Bowl victory charge.
I'm glad to see another division getting a right royal roasting
Both sets of racists and the Cowboys. Ambivalent to the Giants, wouldn't care if they won it.
