Your “Hold Your Nose, Keep Your Eyes Peeled” Sunday Later Afternoon NFL Football Open Thread

Gotta love it when the 4 o’clock game is a stinker but it involves your team. I have you all (mostly) to myself. And if I could borrow from Hippo’s London football vernacular-“IT’S MANDATORY VIEWING!” But if it’s a nice fall day (parts of Texas excluded) take advantage of it, there may not be more of them available.



Is San Franny committed to the run? They’ve only thrown to wr’s 53 times in four games. If anyone should be making that dumb ‘feed me’ gesture it should be Peabo Bryson, Bourne, Aiyuk and those others dudes. Kittles will always get his but the Fins have only given up 116 yards to that spot. That said, they’ve not seen anyone near the caliber of Boy George so this is the first real test.


Stefanski has become a fan of rollouts-after not calling any the first week he’s dialed up 14 so far and Mayfield has turned it into a signature play. He’s 13-14 for 158 yards and 2 TD’s on the play-look for more today. It’ll be interesting to see how the Browns will handle an Indy D after rolling up 49 points on the Cowboys last week. The Colts defend outside the numbers very well so maybe look for crossers, pick plays and such.


The Giants hoped that the drafting of Andrew Thomas would be a ‘plug, play and forget about it’ scenario but the big dude is struggling just like everyone else on the line. Accustomed to being larger and more physically talented than his opponent, Thomas has discovered that shoddy technique gets exploited when you play the best of the best. If the Giants aren’t able to put up some scores (they haven’t gotten a TD in their last 2 games) vs. a Dallas D that generates pressure only 27% of the time when they rush the passer, it’ll be a long year indeed. Can’t help but think the Cowboys smash here.

Feel free to comment on the awfulness provided.

When Team had its good season with RG3, they also had a play where RG3 was the receiver. That seems to be a precursor to severe injury


When did Dalton become clutch?


We know Red dead redemption has no happy endings

When the gameplan didn’t prepare for defending him.

That’s not necessarily a bad thing.

I thought Zeurlein just sliced the shit out of that one.


Ankl’or was appeased and shank’lor denied

Skip Bayless believes this proves the conspiracy of kicker balls.
