Feels like the beginning of the season for some reason. Thank The Covid for that. As we move forward and things get less and less predictable, I want Wednesday night games. I want Friday morning games. I want Saturday midnight games. BLOW IT ALL UP, NFL! Maybe listen to someone in marketing that is under 45 years-old, for once.
-Listing injuries to stars is something I fear will not be a thing that goes away at any time this year. This is Agatha Christie’s “And Then There Were None” (original title was “Ten Little Washington Teams”) played out on the field. Anyhoo, Ekeler, Chubb, Drake and Darnold will likely miss (insert number here) weeks. It’s cool perusing one’s fantasy teams, reacquainting oneself with the “IR”, “D”, “O” and “Q” parts of the alphabet.
-The Colts D is a thing? With the exception of the Bears last drive (when Indy was likely in ‘prevent’) the Colts gave up only 170 yards. I’d heard before the season began that Ya-Sin and Blackmon were impressing and that cb Rhodes had regained his form. With this on top of above-average play from Buckner and Leonard, is the team modeling itself after last Year’s Pats? What with the lockdown secondary and the aged qb dinking and dunking to his heart’s delight?
-Feasting on wonky O-lines tends to inflate superior defensive players numbers-Myles Garrett and Aaron Donald share the league lead in pressures with 27.
-Shoutout to the many rookies that are flashing right now. The smartest of the smartest NFL jaw-waggers insisted that this would a very tough year for them. Apparently Herbert, Burrows, Lamb, Jefferson, Higgins and more than a few others didn’t bother listening.
TO THE GAMES!
He’s so frickin’ entertaining! Patty sees the field so well, can make any type of throw, responds to texts in a timely fashion and can fold a fitted sheet! The latest rumor is that he’s going to carry the baby for his partner because he doesn’t want to burden her too much. So many of us thought that this 2-4 year window of Chiefs play would be them outscoring everybody and giving up mega points. The game vs. the Ravens and halftime adjustments last year on the run to the Super Bowl have put that notion to the side. Belchick will take one of Kelce, Tyreek or CEH out of the game and it won’t matter because Hoyer is bringing his talents to the starting spot.
What with Rodgers flinging the ball like his 27 year-old self again and Matty Ice in the late prime of his career, I don’t think that’s a big ask. Brian Hill acquitted himself well last week which automatically pings back to questions as to whether Hurdy Gurley is on a snap count. If Quinn loses another high scoring game and goes 0-4 he’s got to throw Raheem Morris to the sidewalk, right? Both Jones and Ridley were assessed as questionable but are ready to go.
Tell me something I don’t know, below.
