Your “And Then There Were Three” (as always) Sunday Afternoon NFL Football Open Thread

I complain but I shouldn’t, really. The usual circumstance is that there’s a toss-away tilt that is of no interest to anyone but the respective fanbases. Today we’ve got Kyler vs. Team that got a surprise result last week. Of course the Chiefs are always a treat and dare I say that Patty is actually a likeable type of fella? And lastly-and I said it last week as well-the Ravens O is fun to watch. We need a name for it. Maybe Roman’s Wrinkles? You know, he’s fooling around with his creation, tweaking it here and there, confusing D’s in the process.

TO THE GAMES!

Team/Cards:

Team’s d-line flashed big last week but Wentz gave them all kinds of help last week by not moving well in the pocket. In qb Murray, Team is not getting a guy that ran once for 2 yards. Kyler ran 13 times-5 designed, 8 scrambles and went no-huddle on 42 plays. That there is the perfect way to get an aggressive line off-balance and more importantly, gassed.

Ravens/Texans:

Will Deshaun be sacked 6-8 times? His o-line (according to PFF) grades out as above average and yet Watson was sacked 44 times last year. Why? He holds on to the ball too long and doesn’t check to his rb’s. Look for Hollywood to go bananas today-he’ll be shadowed by Robey but the latter didn’t have a good game last week. Brown’s aDOT was almost 19 yards last week. Fairly obvious Lamar is looking directly at him when trying to stretch the field.

Chiefs/Chargers:

Is Tyrod a sneaky play this week? He sure muffed it last week but Chiefs corners are out/compromised and Taylor was throwing farther downfield than observers expected. He also rushed 7 times as well. They’ll fall behind so Garbage Points Ahoy! But we know how this one ends, Mahomesian things will be done and KC gets the W.

It’s your turn now.

Aw, the crowdless Lambeau leap

Joliet Jake Delhomme

If I was the KC kicker, I would run over to the Chargers sideline, grab the head coach by the throat and yell: “I beat you three times, motherfucker!”

Viva La Tabula Raza

Fuck.
So, will I live long enough for the Chiefs under Mahomes to become as hated as the Patriots under Brady?

Gumbygirl

He seems to be a nice guy. Brady, not so much.

Doktor Zymm

I hope Mahomes doesn’t go Brady, and I can’t see Andy Reid being strategic enough to try anything like SpyGate

Moose -The End Is Well Nigh

No, you’ll live quite a while, but Mahomes is just not that hate-able.

Viva La Tabula Raza

I agree with the Mahomes thing, can’t imagine him going all in on a Peterson/Vick/Ray Rice career speed bump, but it don’t matter because I don’t expect to live through the civil war that is going to start November 4th.

Recovery Whiskey

I want KC’s kicker

TheRevanchist

Fuck you, chargers!

TheRevanchist

Damn 2 minute warning! Quit trying to ice my team, bitches!

Doktor Zymm

SoFi sends me a tonne of junk mail, and they put it in a plain envelope to try and make it look like it’s not junk mail. I should start saving it, pulp it into a slurry, and pump it into their headquarters

Recovery Whiskey

Never heard of SoFi but it looks like a financial services scam aimed at extracting as much money as possible from millennials and zoomers.

TheRevanchist

Enron for the children.

Recovery Whiskey

E Corp.

Unsurprised

They bought the crooked E logo and IP from Enron or whatever was left, the receiver, trustee, whatever, for the show.

Doktor Zymm

Pretty much, they’re trying to sucker money off anyone who’s not savvy enough to run like hell from a financial services company that markets themselves the way they do

JimU

Cowardly football by the Chargers.

Gumbygirl

I wasn’t expecting much of a game here, but the Bolts are having a very good day. Poor Tyrod, we probably won’t see him again.

Doktor Zymm

Any word on what exactly his injury is?

yeah right

They said chest injury. Pretty vague. If the Chargers win he can start applying elsewhere.

Gumbygirl

They said his ribs were sore from last week, and he tweaked them again in warmups.

TheRevanchist

Trade him to the Giants. Starting job for sure

Doktor Zymm

Points scored in the late games inversely proportional to how generic your team name is

TheRevanchist

We got OT! I hope Keenan A pulls a groin, and then gets his groin pulled, too.

Unsurprised

I nearly cried when I left the house on Friday and it was raining. The sky cleared by the time I got home. It’s been clearing up even the overcast and I can see sky.

So I’ve only left the house once last night to get groceries for no good reason. I should go out and play or walk or drive or just lounge on a rock. Instead I ate a ton of pasta and bread and beer. I suck.

Doktor Zymm

There are bears outside

King Hippo

/Buddy immediately rushes out

Unsurprised

Good work, team

Senor Weaselo

And they’re godless killing machines.

Doktor Zymm

This is the first OT this year I think?

Recovery Whiskey

Scott Hansen confirms

Mahomes is so good Andy Reid’s clock management can’t stop him

Horatio Cornblower

This Mahomes kid just might have a future in this game.
