I fell asleep. What happened to the was-supposed-to-be-great Bears offense?

Saw the deep pass Packers had in the first half to set up the TD. Outside of that I guess I didn't miss much.


Defensive battles can be just as exciting and Packers-Bears black & blue games are traditionally low-scoring, but it was sloppy at times (1st and 40?). If you like offense, the Cubs and Brewers each scored more than the Bears did last night. With teams holding back their assets in the preseason, the openers act as a tune up, which becomes more of an issue since the league began scheduling division games at the top of the season. I doubt Sunday will be any more elegant for younger teams.

I live in Chicago and haven't heard anything about a great offense. It's all their defense. But yes, their offense sucked big time.

Bob, I agree about some exciting defensive games and I agree that the game was sloppy. And ugly. One of the most boring games I have seen in a long time.

If the Raiders are so over Antonio Brown, will the XFL take a chance? Probably not for $30M.

My wife and I were just talking about this when we heard about it. My guess, speculation is someone in one of these leagues (whatever they are) might throw him a bone and offer maybe 1 million conditional bucks on the off chance that he keeps his nose clean. Although different situations, I equate it to Kapernick for the NFL. Does anyone really want to touch the mess?

The Raiders has been the "last stop" for players, either troubled (Incognito) or in their twilight, for a while now. His options will be incredibly limited, I doubt even the Vikings would touch him. Maybe Cincy?

Antonio Brown signs with the Patriots. What if this was the plan all along? Who would you rather play for - Dumpster Fire Oakland or 6-Rings Belichek?

Maybe he's crazy like a fox.

Yeah, makes you wonder. Here's a team and franchise with no real history of winning; too easily believing all the hype. Now comes the tough part, winning.

The Browns franchise had a significant history of winning through out the 40s-60s and, to a lesser extent, in the 80s. They were definitely over-hyped based on 1 ok season, but it's also only Week 1. There's a lot of football left.

The Golden Boy is still at it:

https://www.packersnews.com/story/sports/nfl/packers/2019/09/12/packers-leg end-hornung-place-first-legal-sports-bet-casino/2300642001/

quote:
Thursday marked the opening of a sports book in Clark County, Indiana, a move that came after the state legalized sports betting on Sept. 1.

At Horseshoe Casino in Elizabeth in Southern Indiana, former Green Bay Packers star Paul Hornung was set to place the ceremonial first wager, which is somewhat amusing when you consider Hornung's history with gambling.

The Pro Football Hall of Famer, 83, was the first overall pick in the 1957 NFL Draft and won four NFL championships with the Packers as the team's halfback and kicker.

He also was suspended from the NFL for the entire 1963 season for gambling.

According to Pro Football Talk, part of Hornung's agreement with then-NFL commissioner Pete Rozelle to get reinstated was to avoid any contact with football betting and stop traveling to Las Vegas. He also was barred from attending the Kentucky Derby, something he had done since childhood. He still lives in Louisville today, but he did play college football at Notre Dame in Indiana. Elizabeth is just across the Kentucky/Indiana border, just more than 20 miles from Louisville.

Paul Hornung's first bet at the new sports book service at Horseshoe Casino on Thursday afternoon was on the New Orleans Saints to win the Super Bowl

It's not deja vu, Eli Manning has been benched again. Looks like it's the end for him in East Rutherford. I wonder how Ben McAdoo is feeling today, he was probably right to sit Eli two years ago. NY fans and media are quick to loose patience and run players out of town, but are always faithful if they get championships. What a mixed legacy he will have - 2 Super Bowls against the top team of the era, but otherwise barely mediocre. Had his last name not been "Manning" I wonder if he would have been given as long of a rope.

Meanwhile, tough breaks for Pittsburgh and New Orleans. Always sucks to see QBs go down.
