    Not everything is an opinion or open to interpretation, even if the answers contradict your personal view on the subject. Some things aren’t “beliefs”, they’re established facts. For example, wearing masks reduces the spread of droplet based infections. Or, private business have the right to require masks for service/entry. People are debating that don’t have a “differing view”, they’re misinformed. “In my opinion” is absolutely irrelevant when discussing facts.

    I thought it would be a good idea for everyone to collate their general performance thoughts for the season in one thread. It also helps me to easily refer back to previous notes! It looks like us Europeans have finally got access to the All 22 for last week, so hopefully I will get some notes up today. If anyone has any requests upon the conclusion of a game, stick them in here and I will try my best to have a look out.

    Being allowed to speak and having their opinion be considered worthwhile are 2 different things. The schizophrenic homeless person can speak on whatever he likes, that’s absolutely his right, but I don’t have to accept it as reasonable.

    No, I'm saying you using the phrase "diversity of thought" to describe people who are willfully scientifically illiterate to the overwhelming mountain of evidence we have on the effectiveness of masks is hilarious.

    Remember when he signed as a free agent and everyone lol'd the rams for massively overpaying him, and then he turned out to quietly be a very good wide receiver and pretty underpaid for the last couple of years? Ahhh...good times.

    Wanted to introduce myself and say hello to the community. I'm sure this isn't the right place to do it but I don't know if I'll create one of those bio posts. I've been a Packers fan for several decades, and am confident they are the greatest team in professional sports for many reasons. I've lurked here since last season and lockdown finally broke me into creating an account. Anyway, I appreciate that the posters here stick mostly to ball with maybe a bit of irreverence without getting too personal. I hope to find a group to talk some football with, especially while we all need a little mental escape. Hope I can contribute to that. Go Pack!

    1st Quarter Notes * The Titans 3 WR, 1 TE personnel is HUGE. AJ Brown and Corey Davis look like they could play TE ... * Ojemudia going outside when we go to Nickel, Callahan going inside * Chubb beat Lewan on his first pass rush, and to the outside too. Good to see * Jones the first DE off the bench, Reed the first OLB * Really solid first possession by our D. Very stout upfront (Purcell, Harris in particular) and two wins for Chubb in pass rush against Lewan (including 3rd down pressure that forced bad throw to get off the field) * Nice job by Fant on the first PA play. Let's Clowney make an inside move, knowing the PA roll is taking Lock away from Clowney * Butt is the first TE in to spell Fant * Re: our first 3rd down - we got beat on play call. We've got Jeudy from the slot on a Sluggo up the sideline, and Hamilton on a skinny post from the same side of the field. It's a win by Jeudy and he's got separation. The problem is, there is no deep route on the other side of the field so the single high Safety (Titans in Cover 1 man) can stay on top of both Jeudy and Hamilton. See below. If a skinny post is ran from the opposite side of the field, the single high safety can't cheat and therefore Lock can put more air under the ball. That said, it's a poor overthrow by Lock. He had to reset his feet a little to the same side of the play which cut his angle off for the pass a tad. Good pass pro vs a blitz and a lot of disguise shown upfront. * Poor coverage by Callahan on the next drive, allowing big completion to Davis. Got to play more aggressive than that when you're a two deep Safety coverage. Free release across the field, trailing by at least 3 yards. * Simmons then gives up another chunk play. Good switch from Bouye to Simmons, but Simmons stops his feet at the top of the route. Can probably do that with a top end pass rush; we don't have one of those. Easy separation across the QBs face * First play Walker is in, he ends up 7 yards downfield thanks to Lewan * Fantastic read by Johnson as the Titans call the same play but PA instead of run. Johnson reads it all the way, goes straight for the QB and forces the incompletion * Bassey in before Harris when we go to Dime. Interesting * Titans moving Clowney everywhere. Moved him to OLB in a 4-3, but attacking straight over Glasgow and the latter got his butt kicked. No gain on the run * Drew can't be leaving the pocket below. Makes a 8 yard play out of it, but that is a totally clean pocket vs a 3 man rush (Clowney very late to align as well). Have to stay in there and let something develop * Real nice blocking downfield by Glasgow in space on the Lindsay draw. Good effort by Hamilton and Butt too (the latter got punched on that play) * Butt whiffs his block the next play ... * Depends on your personality type when evaluating the TD throw. I am a bit too traditional for that play. It's so dangerous and you're in the redzone. However, some would say he's got the physical talent and, he may have recognised the defender covering Fant had his back to Lock so couldn't make a play on the ball

    I think posters aren't considering how great of a fit Kupp and Woods are for McVay's offense. He might not be worth that to them for their team, but for McVay and Goff these guys are great fits and can put up better #s than elsewhere.

    I noticed, I think it was on the OBJ TD, that he did an awesome job reading the incoming blitz pre-snap and redirecting the OL so that they could pick it up. I really think Mayfield can be special in a few years. We just need to be patient and let he and Stefanski grow together.

    Just make sure you're donating to local shelters/rescues. The ASPCA, HSUS and PETA are all bad and very little of the donations go to actually help animals and they're more so interested in ending animal ownership altogether.

    2nd quarter notes * first pancake spotting of the new season. Glasgow pancaked Simmons on a zone block * Nice play by Lock to escape Clowney pressure on 3rd down (swatted Risner off him like a fly). Completed the short pass for a 1st. Gordon fumbled the next play * Chubb beats Lewan inside with ease on a run play but misses the 1v1 tackle on Henry in the backfield. Would've been 3 yard loss, became 1 yard gain * 3rd and 6, Attaochu jumped offside. Huge play. Titans have failed on 3rd and long both times thus far in the game, becomes 3rd and 1 with Henry rumbling inside the 5. It was Attaochu who lost contain. Shame because he's had a good 1st Q * Miscommunication on the TD to the TE. Simmons originally on Pruitt, but the motion comes and Simmons gestures to Jackson to come over and take the TE. Attaochu can't keep Pruitt on the LOS and it's a heck of a catch * Again, Lock struggling with pocket manipulation. Look at the pocket below - that is perfect in the NFL. Just step into the void that #90 has given you, and make an accurate throw. Instead, Drew takes a weird jump step and throws an inaccurate ball to Butt (who should've still caught it). You can see Bolles got away with a hold. No need for it - he had Clowney run a really deep arc. Just let him go by, man * Excellent pass pro across the board on 3rd down again. Great jab by Bolles right in the chest of Clowney. Stoned him * Love the play design with Lindsay and Gordon in the game. Creates real confusion amongst the coverage, gives Lindsay a free run across the middle for an easy pitch and catch for 10+ * Simmons beat Risner baddddd on the 1st attempt inside the 5. Stopped a TD. Cushenberry, who has been very impressive, created some lane that close to the goal line * The pressure that prevented the easy throw to Vannett was absolutely not Bolles' fault. It's on Drew. Look at the first photo below and think where Drew should move his feet once he realises the first option to his right isnt there. Then, look at the second photo and where he threw the ball from. Bolles must've thought he had an unreal rep to get his man 12 yards deep from the LOS ... * Two very nice stands by the Titans to stop the TD. Their LB core is excellent against the run * Simmons bites hard on the PA and allows an easy completion for a 25 yard gain. Nowhere near enough time for our pass rush to get home * What a mess on 3rd and 6. Firsker (backup TE) aligns in a bunch set inside and behind Humphries (slot WR). We have Jewell and Callahan in man coverage, and the Titans run a simple levels concept in that they have matching routes on different levels. For some reason, we switch Jewell onto Humphries who obviously separates for an easy completion. It's easy to rag on Simmons for recognising late with his help, but he has to stay on top of his half of the field; he can't drive on the mismatch straight away * Pass rush has disappeared now. Getting tired * ... and the next play we send a 6 man blitz but with coverage playing 10 yards off. Easiest pass and catch you will see for 15 yards Positives from the 1st half: * OL looked solid. Stayed out of 3rd and long which protected us, but we've given up very few clean wins and we've had some nice push in the run game, even if the rushing numbers didn't show it. Cushenberry was the standout for me, given he's a rookie. Bolles didn't let Clowney ruin the game so give him credit. * When in rhythm, the Offense as a whole was clicking. Like what Drew can do with his legs, his ability to throw whilst moving to his right and also when running forward * Defense looked really, really stout against the run. Purcell was the stand out, a couple of backfield hits for Casey and Kareem Jackson disrupts the run game as well as any DB in the NFL, for me. * Alexander Johnson is brilliant when going forwards. He has a nose for the football and is so physicalat the point of attack Negatives from the 1st half: * Sloppy plays on Offense cost us. Details show up in the redzone, so missed blocks and poor QB footwork means points left on the board. Fumble led to 7 points * Pass rush began to tire because of total lack of depth. Would love to see Attaochu's snap count in that 1st half. Looked like he played every snap * Mental mistakes from Justin Simmons made him look a bit silly twice. Didn't see that at all last year

    Multiple. Things. Can. Be. True. At. Once. Riots are bad. Protests are good. Reason riots were sparked is the worst. Violating people's personal property is bad. Calling a direct violation of a private business TOS a protest is wrong. People dragging/involving innocent bystanders into their protests is not great. TV/Media is not great. America is still the dopest. The MoL lives forever. Early on in the pandemic my town reported an increase in car and auxiliary building break ins. That has since slowed (and mind you I live in a nearly zero crime area) so it was not the norm. That actually turned into people vandalizing personal property. A few houses down from me flies a Thin Blue Line flag and other areas across town people were going onto other property and ripping/cutting/tearing down said flags. IMO that is extremely wrong because you crossed that line of personal vs public. While I do not agree with disrespect to the flag, if it is on public property, knock yourself out, you have that right. I will always believe that you cannot cross over into my private property however. I understand there is a whole other argument to be had about personal property but that is not one I plan to engage in.

    Eh, debatable but regardless you can dislike the riots but still support the protests as a huge majority of people do. When you try to discredit the protests because of the riots, you're really no better than the people who were screaming at civil rights protests from 40 years ago.

    They obviously missed Geno and Daniels. The rush D was brutal. Joe is good. The offensive line is not. You can have all the WR's and RB's you want, but the offensive line is killing this team. Again. How many years do we need to say this before they realize Bobby Hart is actually not good at football? Incredible. Side note: I really like what i'm seeing from Drew Sample. They're utilizing a lot of 2 TE sets, but if they didn't have Uzomah he probably would have had a 10 catch game. I think it was first catch that really caught me eye. Burrow threw a lazer slightly behind him and he just snagged it in stride and kept going. I like it.

    ***WARNING*** Tongue and cheek comment to follow. ...90% of COVID cases were non-issues... Yes, the majority of the protests were peaceful, respectful and well though out. I had one across the street from me at the local schools sports fields, I did not participate personally but I dropped some cold water off cause it was hot as dog balls that day. Not hard at all for normal people to see most of these protests have been good. It is a shame that the majority of the good has a mark on it because of the minimal bad. Hell one of the arguments pro police people us is "not all cops are bad", isn't that the same damn concept as "not all protests turn to riots". Crazy what people will say vs not believe. Now, had said protests in my area turned south, I may be sitting here today with a completely different attitude, so I can understand if someone actually went through a riot they may be looking at this with shaded glasses, but that is very unlikely any of us here and a very very very very small % of people who have been in/around this entire situation.

    Joe looked better at everything last night, not because he has better WRs but he’s better coached. Yes the WRs will help but Joe looked fundamentally better than Darnold has, from his footwork to his poise

    Really good offensive performance tonight, that was exactly what I was expecting this season schematically. Heavy doses of chubb and hunt with some baker PA and deep shots peppered in. Defense was a sieve but we knew it was going to be a problem. Ward the only real bright spot other than some up and down DL play. All I can really say at this point is the ravens are a fantastic team, the Bengals are still bad and I'm not sure what the browns are yet but at least that looked like a game that can be built upon.

    Glad to hear he is on the mend. It is funny, owning a dog is the best and also most stressful thing imaginable at times. I can't imagine life without my dog, but I also can't imagine the stress of a similar situation. Had close calls for sure but so far lucky.
