Your Monday Night Football Open Thread

Yesterday was a hoot, wasn’t it? The Sunday Nighter was a keeper and it seems like there’s so much happening it’s hard to keep up. I’ll try.

Fallout:

-Players that have fallen include Dalton and N’Keal Harry (concussed), Dede Westbrook and OBJ (torn ACL’s) and Drake has a slight ligament tear in his ankle.

-Ben DiNucci looks like the starter next week on the road in Philly. It does a heart good to see the Cowboys struggling this hard but I’m rooting for this kid. As a 7th rounder he’s been put on blast long before he’s ready (one assumes) and I hope he surprises. I mean, with two successful throws he piled up more yards on O than Sam Darnold did in the second half yesterday.

-I read the stat-4 yards the entire second half, and had to check it myself. Jeebuz. I noted that I think Dimes isn’t going to progress in his current environment and I don’t think Sam has a chance either. Let’s just scoot ahead to next year-he’ll be under a new head coach, a new coordinator and starting from scratch again. His career is being set up to fail.

-Not so with lover of the long ball Justin Herbert-your very latest QB1 in fantasy. Tyrod, we hardly knew ya. Suffice to say, I think the Chargers coaching staff didn’t know what they had on their hands.

-Baker Mayfield did himself a huge favor by having a huge game and thereby fends off the local media, otherwise known as the Cleveland Wolves.

TO THE GAME!

Bears/Rams:

I didn’t see the Bears going 5-1 but in my defense I wasn’t paying them any attention whatsoever. Are the squonkiest one loss team around? Surely they are. That D can’t carry sub-sub par quarterbacking all season long, can they? Seems like fans are walking on eggshells hoping he catches fire again at some point. I spoke up above about qb’s in bad environments and Goff is my best example of a fella that thrives when there’s a slight improvement in o-line play. Credit to McVay and Co. for not jumping the gun and dissembling the line or buying something shiny on the free agent market. They just TRUSTED THE PROCESS.

Have at it.

I was never a big Rams fan when I was a kid, but for some reason I was a fan of this guy. Even had a big poster.comment image

You know they aren’t wearing those hats home. They are fucking embarrassing.

King Hippo

Now a 4th down sack/fumble would do!

SonOfSpam

Final margin appears to be 1.26

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

SonOfSpam

Balls lost by .52 so you did well in comparison.

SonOfSpam

You would have beaten everyone except Game Time Decision and me this week, so really it’s a moral victory and in no way Pyrrhic!

Wait, he could have beaten me? I only lost by .52!

SonOfSpam

We both outscored you, so he would have beaten you which I think is the Commutative Property or perhaps Pythagorean.

When you said “Dodge City” I thought you were talking about Rush Limbaugh during Vietnam.

Thanks, Goff, you moron! Your missed handoff just gave a point to the Bears D and Maestro the win in our FF matchup.

Go fuck a sheep!

SonOfSpam

“Goff” doesn’t seem like a Greek name.

blaxabbath

He’s playing to win the game.

Senor Weaselo

Don’t blame me, I started Deshaun.

King Hippo

We really have seen some bad-ass punting this season.

SonOfSpam

I am destroying you by 3 points.

Only thing that can hurt me is a Rams pick six OH SHIT IT’S GONNA HAPPEN NOW

King Hippo

If that ball had been five yards further it would have been over his head, you moron!

Gratliff
