Around the NFL Week 1

It finally here fuck faces! Some scoffed at the NFL for even trying.

I don’t know how the Chiefs don’t repeat...

Re: Around the NFL Week 1

We'll see what happens. Wait until the first outbreak. Hopefully they learned from the Marlins outbreak.

In the meantime, football!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !

Can't believe the season starts tonight.

Re: Around the NFL Week 1

I honestly don't think the lack of preseason games will matter much. Some teams in recent years didn't play their starters at all, or very very little. But I'm sure it will be a front and center story line early on. Any sign of rust will have announcers pointing out the lack of preseason games.

Re: Around the NFL Week 1

I remember the strike shortened season. Bit messy but good fun in the end. Can't see the level of play being worse than that week 1 & 2.

Patrick Mahomes is 7-0 in his career in September, with 23 touchdowns, zero interceptions, and a 129.4 passer rating in those games.

I think it will affect rookies and younger guys that don't have much experience. There might be a big drop off in play from starters to young bottom-of-the-roster talent. And I think the injury risk will be greater because it's hard to go from practicing to regular-season full speed.

The good thing is every team is dealing with the same situation at least.

I think it mainly represents many lost opportunities for bubble guys trying to make the 53. But I'm not sure it'll have a big impact on on field performances.

The bad things is, for us, most teams aren't dealing with one of the youngest rosters in the league with a lot of player turnover and an entire new offense and defensive scheme to install.

I know we don't have any love for Dak here, but it's time for Skip Bayless to make his yearly clown appearance.

Skip Bayless On Cowboys QB Admitting Depression: ‘I Don’t Have Sympathy For Him Going Public’


Man Skip Bayless Is a major asshole. Look football aside, prayin for Dak and His family comes thru dealing with his brothers suicide. Gotta hurt to lose a sibling that way and I am sure he is still in pain. I didn’t hear about this when it came out, but prayers up for the dude.

Seriously fuck off Skip Bayless

Re: Around the NFL Week 1

The hypocrisy continues with the NFL not mandating one way or another fans or no fans. Fumble, Roger.
