Your “Talk Amongst Yourselves” Early Slate of NFL Games Open Thread

Because there seem to be so many of them we’ll go directly-

TO THE GAMES!

Rams/Bills:

Rook rb Moss is out with a toe ouchie so the problem for Coach McDermott now becomes, “How do I limit Singletary to under 20 touches? Hmmm…”. He’ll find a way.

Raiders/Pats:

I was thinking Pats for survivor because the Raiders are coming off the meaningful victory and all the hoopla surrounding their new digs, plus traveling cross-country and playing the early game vs. the Pats at home. Or I could stream the teams playing the Jets. Decisions are hard.

Team/Browns:

Much was made of the vaunted Team’s pass rush after wk. 1 and then wk. 2 happened. Quickly recapped, there was not much vaunt. Mayfield and Co. shouldn’t have much of a problem here.  Shouldn’t.

Texans/Steelers:

Pitt’s pass rush generates pressure within 2 seconds on 44% of qb dropbacks. Look for Watson to run around a bit more than usual to counteract that.

9ers/Giants:

New York will be looking Wayne Gallman’s way when they need a competent plodder (who was inactive last week) to get them 3 yards on first down. San Franny should walk away with this despite fast running out of Next Man Up’s.

Bengals/Eagles:

Burrows is tied for second in attempted passes with 97(!) so far. Kudos for him in that he has a 3:1 TD/INT ratio. Let’s call him Joey Ice (that elbow, postgame)

Titans/Vikes:

Perhaps this is the week rook wr Justin Jefferson hits the smash spot-he’s playing primarily in the slot so far and would be up against an UDFA that has given up 80+ yards and a score so far.

Bears/Falcons:

Julio is a game-timer that didn’t practice all week. PFF has given the Bears O-line the 3rd best ranking with respect to protecting the qb, noting that they didn’t give up a single quick pressure to the Giants last week. I feel that sometimes these rankings should be adjusted for ‘quality of opponent’.

Have at it down below. We’ll have our esteemed footski commenters start things off.

It’s a shame Kelly Loeffer isn’t dead. I understand Georgians are, in their hearts, backwater hillbillies who really care more about fabricating a god that hates the same people they do — but I’d prefer they keep animals like Loeffer elected at the state level so they can just continue to screw up that shithole, rather than bother the rest of us with their inbred culture.

Is Nick Foles the answer at QB for CHI?????

Gratliff

Any year he doesn’t begin as the starter is a Foles season

Mr. Ayo

That doesn’t work.

Moose -The End Is Well Nigh

You are just not doing it right. I will get you details of the semen-are.

Mr. Ayo

Will there be a hands on session?

Moose -The End Is Well Nigh

Hands on, fingers in, no extra charge. The bonus get larger at each level, you should soon be at Onan Level.

Pay no attention to the GHB rumors.

…That’s … someone’s Rrrrrrraiders

Fumble
D.Carr sacked in End Zone for -6 yards, SAFETY.
The Replay Official reviewed the safety ruling, and the play was REVERSED.
D.Carr sacked at LV -1 for -7 yards. FUMBLES, RECOVERED by NE-D.Wise at LV -1. TOUCHDOWN.

blaxabbath

Refs gotta find a way to Tuck Rule this NE end zone recovery.

Gratliff

Bengals walking the Eagles to their endzone would be a fitting end to this game

Eagles need to go get Josh Rosen so they can get the inside lane on Brock Purdy in the draft.
