All right gang, time to get some friends and family involved here - we only have 4 people in the spread league and 5 in the straight up - we need more to make it more competitive and fun. Sign up instructions in the first post - sign up before the games start this weekend............... tell any friends or family you want to compete against.... no money involved here, but of course you can make side bets.....

It's really easy - just pick the winners each week ..... your lowest week gets dropped......

Sign up so you can remind everyone else how much better you are at picking........

Patriots fan here. They got their a$$'$ kicked. I think the offense will be ok. The defense looked horrible. The front seven was worse than horrible. People around here thought they were going 19-0. That was never going to happen.
On the other hand, it's only one game. It's on to New Orleans.

Agreed. They are all over this forum when things go welll and absent when they don't go very well. The biggest front runners in sports are Patriot and Yankee fans.

Don't worry guys, the Pat's will be in the hunt at the end. One bad game doesn't make a season. They've had bad games before and have rebounded well.
On the other hand, they looked terrible. They will have their hands full with Drew Brees.
I'll come out here next week , win or lose. But don't count on them losing two in a row.

The Lions looked good in the second half. Will find out in the next couple weeks if this will be a good season or not.


leafsfan - 9/12/2017 at 05:39 PM

So many dud games this past weekend. Oakland Titans was entertaining for the first half and Patsies losing is always a good thing. Other than that I think players after 4 or whatever it is pre-season games are already bored with the process.

I think its Cincy Houston is on Thursday - Who thought that was a good idea???

Patriots beat a weak Saints team yesterday. A win is a win though. Brady and the offense looked pretty good, not great. Defense is a long ways away from being a championship defense. They were really good stopping the run. Brees threw for a lot of yards, but that's what he does. He's still pretty good.

Yeah ,Saints D is pretty bad. If NE would have had Edelman they probably would have dropped even more yards then what they did.

Dallas got it handed to them by the Broncos!

Tony Romo is very good as an analyst. He happens to be younger to both Brady and Brees . It looks like he made the right move.


pops42 - 9/19/2017 at 02:40 PM

The giants need a QB who can scramble and evade the sack. their OL is rally bad, and Manning is like a statue back there. Kaepernick could be had at a bargain price, and could win games for them.

Interesting thought. But I don't see them benching Manning. Ever. The offensive coordinator is already in hot water. They would run him out of town if Manning doesn't play, but I do think the thought of it is interesting. And heck, Manning is almost 10 years older than Kaepernick so who knows? Maybe look to the future.

Anyone that can make the Lions look good when their QB only throws for 122 yards can't be that great.

I was wondering the same thing last night. Why isn't he running when he has an opening??? I saw about 5 occasions when he could have dashed through a gap but stood there and got slammed to the ground. He looked scared and his receivers we're no help either.

Brutal display for sure.

He needs to retire.


nebish - 9/20/2017 at 03:03 AM

Manning can't run. The one sack I think a Lion's defender just waved his arm Eli's way and Manning fell down. If the Giant's can't pass protect properly to run the plays they want to run then the coaches need to realize what is and isn't possible and they either need to have players stay in to help block or they need to call different plays. Really bad game for Giant's organization on national TV.

Regarding Tony Romo, yes I like him alot in the booth as well. First game I heard him, I missed week 1 TV games. He seemed really genuine, alot like a fan in some of his reactions but gave some interesting tidbits throughout. I see they stuck Simms in the studio. Wasn't so much of a Simms fan, I read many people weren't either.

Yeah like your boy TB12? Supposedly he said he drinks 2.5 gallons of water a day
and also it helps him precent sun burns. So if he sleeps 8hrs a day, that leaves
him 16 hrs to drink 2.5 gallons which is 40 8oz cups, which is 2.5 cups an hour.
Not buying. He would need a catheter anchored in his bladder.

TB12 is certainly trying to sell his brand. I hope he doesn't turn into a snake oil salesman. I wish he would tone down his selling at least until he's out of football. After that, it won't bother me as much.
Whatever methods he uses to keep up his high level of playing on the field, is working. Older athletes like Eli, might want to take a look into what Tom is doing.
Go Pat's.

Brady pulled out another late win against a good defensive Houston team. Patriot defense is not good, although they made a huge stop and forced Houston to kick a field goal. I would have went for it on fourth down if I was Houston.
Lot's of good football yesterday. It's too bad that politics has entered sports the way it did.I think the league and the players handled it right.
jszfunk, your welcome for Jacoby. When Luck is healthy, and you get a real head coach, Pat's, Colts rivalry will continue.

If Jaocby keeps this type of play up he will be snagged by another team next year
and definetly will be a starter. Heck, he could probably start for a few teams now!

Yeah,we need a new coach. I like Chuck and always have been a

Awful way for the Lions to lose Sunday


porkchopbob - 9/28/2017 at 04:40 PM

Tonight the Green Bay Packers could take the lead in the GB-Chicago all-time series for the first time since 1933. Pretty amazing since the Bears were ahead by 24 games twice: in 1960, but Lombardi's squads bridged the gap over the next decade only for the Packers to fall behind in the 1970s and 80s. In 1992 the series was 81-57-6, but Favre and Rodgers have managed to bridge the gap with a 37-14 combined record since (Chicago has started 18 different QBs during the same period), tying the series last season. Pretty nuts considering they only play twice a year.

It was an ugly hit, glad to hear Adams was out of the hospital quickly. If Trump wants those kinds of hits back in the game, he can have the whole league all to himself.

I love college football best, but do enjoy the execution at the NFL level. The likes of Brady, or a well schemed defense. And the tackling. That is probably what I love best about the NFL the tackling is much better than college.

kevdab - 10/2/2017 at 09:26 AM

Patriots fall to 2-2. Offense again looked pretty good. Defense on the other hand continues to give up big plays. Too many. They actually made some big stops on third down, but got penalties to keep the defense on the field. Lot's to improve on. Short week. Tampa on Thursday.


jszfunk - 10/2/2017 at 10:53 AM

A quarter of the way into the season and Bills and Rams are in first place in they're respective divisions.

Patriots were lucky to get a win last night. They almost gave the game away to Tampa with all the penalties, and the two turnovers by Brady. We'll take the win though.
Defense showed a little improvement, especially the secondary, which I thought would be a stregnth to begin with.

On another note, the NFL should get rid of Thursday night Football. They don't need it. Already enough pro football in prime time.

You talking Monday night? Brutal, I had the Skins.

I watch games with people and they are always like, "what are you worried about, you're +x and they are only up by y and there is only z time left? The life of a sports bettor, you've seen it all the good and the bad and you've likely seen it more than once. I was already worried when KC stopped the clock and kicked with :08 left. Because I've won and lost on stupid time expiring KO plays like that before and knew what can happen. I actually just sat motionless and quiet in my chair with a smirk on my face knowing there were thousands of people out there that were either euphoric or inconsolable on that play. Would've been a good one to be at a Vegas sportsbook for.

Coot you may or may not appreciate this, but you'll know. Two years ago I was in a Vegas sportsbook with a BYU ML when they opened at Lincoln. Yeah, it was nuts and so was I. The highs on plays like that are really high and make up for those bad beats.


nebish - 10/6/2017 at 05:00 PM

I did play the under last night. All year and all week everyone saying how bad the Pats D was...Tampa isn't good enough nor consistent enough to score a bunch on them. And without Gronk had to figure NE's O wouldn't be that great either, you know how much Brady relies on him. Tampa really disappointed though. Tough loss for them.

You could see that one coming too. Armstrong's poor clock management (twice) on the Huskers last drive. Leaving one second on the clock for a Hail Mary.

Aaron Rodgers is just an outstanding quarterback.

If I had to build a team from all of the quarterbacks I have witnessed playing over the last 40 yrs

How stupid do you have to be to do something like that? That's like something a 20-year old college kid would do, not an NFL coach.

Just speculating but I would bet some pressure was put on him to step down.

What the hell was he thinking?!?!

Sounds like JJ Watt is out again.

Is Teddy Brdigewater coming back?


Lee - 10/10/2017 at 11:56 AM

Ywah whatever happened to Bridgewater?

Last week was my roughest week yet as well.

Philly at Carolina is pretty interesting tonight. Only a Sun Belt college game so NFL will get my primary Thursday attention for a change and it is a pretty good one!

I think he's out until Week 6 at least from last season's injury.

Enjoyed that game tonight. Eagle D was great. Gotta like the toughness Wentz plays with. Carolina hurt themselves multiple times, but Eagles earned it.

So the yahoo straight up pick'em league...are we down to just 3 of us playing out of the 6 that joined? Weak. You guys are better than that!


Lee - 10/13/2017 at 10:36 AM

When you forget to put your picks in one week (me) you are pretty much screwed for the season.

If we put some $ on it I would probably be more attentive. Just a thought.

Sorry.

Hemp! How are you 0-5 in the fantasy league? I didn't even want to play and I'm 3-2. You gonna get your first win vs me today?


porkchopbob - 10/15/2017 at 04:50 PM

Not too many interesting match ups today. A few surprises though:

Jets and Pats battle to break the 3-way tie - who knew?

Also, in the "who knew?" column, Jags-Rams might be an interesting game. Rams seem to be doing well in LA, much better than The Chargers. Still not sure they totally thought that move through. Now you have 2 teams that also have similar color sets in the same city: White, Yellow, and Blue. Why would anyone in LA care about the Chargers and their tiny high school stadium?

Steelers have to rebound against the only unbeaten team in the league. The Chiefs are looking good early, but unless the AFC is still weak by the end of the season, I don't see an Andy Reid/Alex Smith team being much of a threat down the stretch.

Packers are up against Minnesota's backup QB, hopefully the defense will be able to have an easier day than last week's grind.


porkchopbob - 10/15/2017 at 06:17 PM

Rodgers is down. Return questionable. Thatís not good.


pops42 - 10/15/2017 at 08:58 PM

The jets got screwed.


Lee - 10/15/2017 at 09:13 PM

My Lions score 38 and lose by two touchdowns. They've been finding new ways to lose my entire life.

They, the Bears (good win for them today actually) and the Browns have to be the worst run teams in sports.

The Lions have won exactly ONE playoff game since I think 1957 or something. My entire life they've won only once. And I didn't even get to watch their win. I was at work on a Sunday evening.


nebish - 10/15/2017 at 09:46 PM

That Detroit - New Orleans game was certainly bizzare. Lots of strange stuff.

Trying to remember the Lions playoff games. I remember they lost at RFK in a game and everyone was throwing their seat cushions. The playoff game they won must've been at home. Was it Wayne Foutes or Bobby Ross the coach. Scott Mitchell must've been the QB?

I really enjoyed the old days of NFL. There is just something romantic about it. Even just 20 years ago, I feel the nostalgia.

How about YA Title just dying. Man, I used to love watching NFL films of him. He looked so old when he was playing. Just a different era.

I was wrong. Detroit destroyed the Cowboys at home at the Silverdome in 1991 I think. Then I think they went to Washington and got killed by the Redskins in the NFC Championship game. Didn't look it up but I think that was it.


nebish - 10/15/2017 at 11:39 PM

Could be. I distinctly remember the Lions game at RFK. Lions beating Cowboys one year before their SB sounds right.

Teams come up. You see it coming sometimes. You could see that Dallas team building and coming. Good era of football.

They definitely beat the Cowboys (I remember the silver-blue battle) before losing to the Redskins in 1991. I think it was Rodney Peete at QB. I also remember Favre's last second heave to Sterling Sharpe in 1993, and holding Sanders to -1 yards rushing in 1994.

Looks like Rodgers is done for the year, since it's his throwing arm. He came back to take the division (thanks to a very weak division) in 2013 on the final game of the season, but that will be really tough this year. Hundley might get more comfortable and surprise people, there's got to be a reason McCarthy has kept him around for 3 seasons after having no solid backup in 2013. This season just got more interesting...

I feel bad about Rogers. I feel bad because of how much time and work that we;ll never know about that goes into a team and the Packers are toast now. That sucks. I feel bad because Rogers is such a terrific player and I feel bad selfishly that I won;t get to see him perform and also feel bad that Packer fans will not be able to enjoy him leading their team.

With that said, there was nothing wrong with the hit. I feel 100% fine with the hit. Could the D player have laid off? Yes. Is it his job to lay off or knock the QB down legally? Knock the QB down. It is a rough game. **** happens. Clean play.

Yeah, hit was totally legal. Rodgers just came down all wrong. As soon as he came down palm-to-shoulder into the dirt, I thought it was his collar bone. Looked just like 2013 all over, and I've broken my collar bone before. All looked too familiar.


nebish - 10/16/2017 at 02:04 AM

Felt like the Fox crew was over analyzing the hit way too much. I get who Rodgers is and what it means. They were playing up the Rodgers wasn't happy with the hit angle. Didn't like that. Rodgers can not like it, doesn't mean they have to keep discussing the legality of it.

Funny thing is how poor back up QBs are in the NFL. NE has a good one. Not sure how good Fitzpatrick is still and I forget where he is, Tampa? Denver, they have their old guy back and are probably pretty happy to have him right now. For a while, few years ago, Shawn Hill was pretty good. But it just amazes me how all these teams have these 2nd string QBs then the starter gets hurt and they scramble..we need to sign somebody. Steelers come to mind. They've never trusted Landry Jones. If you can't trust your backup QB being one snap away from leading your team get a and develop a new back up. Think KC is on the right track there.


nebish - 10/16/2017 at 02:05 AM

I separated my collar bone twice. Once was jumping over a camp fire. Once was running from security at a Carlos Santana concert after trying to maintain a nice little warming fire. But it was my nonthrowing shoulder.


kevdab - 10/16/2017 at 09:55 AM

Patriots were lucky to beat the Jets yesterday. It was a bad call on the called back TD. I don't know how they could have overturned that.
The defense still has a lot of improving to do. They made some big plays, but they're not close to being a championship defense.
The offense was not sharp yesterday. Did enough to win.
The Rogers hit was clean. It's too bad for him, his team, and the NFL. He's a great player and competitor. A loss for the NFL.


Lee - 10/16/2017 at 10:45 AM

As soon as I saw the play I thought he broke his shoulder. I have done that. Still can't raise one of my arms. I would have preferred to have broken my collarbone. Heals better.

But the play itself wasn't dirty. When you have a 250-300 pound guy land on you, well that can happen.

Unfortunately that is football.

pops, by the letter of the law they didn't. It seems like they did but the rule is the rule. I think the sticky point was whether or not he had the ball when he went out of bounds.

Odd rule. Sucks for a Jets fan.


jszfunk - 10/16/2017 at 11:31 AM

Yeah that stinks for the Packers, but this is football. Injuries happen to the best of them.

The Pitt KC game was good. Steelers made the plays when needed.


I thought Austin Seferian-Jenkins regained control of the ball from what I saw on one of the angles.

I didn't really notice that, but Troy and Joe Buck are pretty terrible announcers, and FOX had their backup Joe Buck starting yesterday. Local announcers typically know the teams better so they have more topics to talk about in greater detail. So when the biggest player in the game goes down, it's not surprising that they will focus on that. It's even worse in baseball, you get the local announcers throughout the season, and then you get a jobber like Matt Vasgersian in the playoffs fixating on one topic or regurgitating stats that are fed into his headset.

The replay clearly showed he had the ball when he went out of bounds. bad call.

Patriots got the Falcons Sunday night. Big test for both teams. I wish the Falcons won last week, but they let Miami come back and beat them. Must have brought back Super Bowl memories.

Anybody have any thoughts on who i are the best teams in each conference. Before Rogers got injured, I thought the Packers were going to be there. Not now. The Chiefs have come down to earth. Patriots,, Don't look like a championship team as of now. Doesn't seem to be any great teams this year.

It's a good question. Some may not like the lack of clear-cut front runners, but I like it. Think it makes for some really interesting games. Hard to put your finger on who is going to emerge atop each division, which is fine with me - although different from how we normally look at the league after 6 games.

I do think Kansas City is still very strong. And Philly.
