703 Pro Bowl
  1. Who writes for NFL.com? The three stooges?

    I think the people in charge of NFL.com assume no one is going to read the summaries anyway. So they hire unexceptional sportswriters to churn out awkward, listless, and poorly written copy. For the bulk of the night, Calvin Ridley was Ryan's security blanket, the second-year game breaker leading Atlanta on the night with eight catches. His 105 yards and one score would've paced the Falcons, as well, had they lost. But then fourth-and-3 happened. Late in the final frame, Atlanta called on Ryan, who had thrown three picks already, to throw a quick screen to Julio Jones, his longtime battery mate, now paid in full. Put the ball in Jones' hands, not Ryan's. - Jeremy Bergman Houston almost coughed up another late lead for the second straight week to open the season. Rookie quarterback Gardner Minshew drove the Jacksonville offense down the field with chunk throws and heady big runs [...] Fournette, however, was stuffed inches before the goal line, allowing the Texans (1-1) to escape without another late collapse. Houston breathed a sigh of relief but can't be thrilled by the limp defensive effort -- including more off coverage -- to close out the tilt. - Kevin Patra Perhaps the tight end is a dynamic that has been overlooked when it comes to the Ravens offense, especially considering they want to deem themselves a threat on the ground and through the air on seemingly every play. - Michael Baca Ugh. Speaking of stooges, the so-called comedians they pay to come in and talk football on their videos are even worse than the writers. Who on earth wants to listen to those people?
  2. The Turnover Bowl continues.
  3. Anyone else see Darby "accidentally" stranded in Atlanta when the team bus leaves tonight?
  4. Is the Falcons' coverage that good, or has Wentz been hit so hard that he's seeing double?
  5. Ridley with an electric touchdown catch soon after getting drilled. Nice.
  6. Sometimes good things just fall in your lap.
  7. I think the only reason he stuck around that long was to see one more Super Bowl. An incredible writer with more guts than a hundred of today's journalists. Despite his well-known hatred of Richard Nixon, they talked football once and got along fine. It really is a great game.
  8. I thought it might be Hunter S. Thompson (who also had a great affinity for football). Now I'm disappointed.
  9. Adam Vinatieri to retire?

    A shoo-in HOF kicker with nothing left to prove. I know it's been a long time, but I wonder if he'll retire as a Patriot.
  10. GDT "Let's Move On" Edition: Bears & Broncos 9/15/19

    Yep. I like the Bears even less than the Packers. They're finally looking like a good team again though, I have to give them that.
  11. GDT "Let's Move On" Edition: Bears & Broncos 9/15/19

    I can't stand your team, but even I have to acknowledge what an important win that was. The Broncos are still tough at home, and that was the best possible way to end it after your kicking woes last year. (I know the feeling.) Great job by Eddie Pineiro.
  12. My expectation going in was that the Titans would win it without looking particularly impressive. Too early to be sure, but them losing at home to the Luck-less Colts is ... not good.
  13. Week 2: VIKINGS (1-0) at Packers (1-0)

    I agree. We can support the team and gives suggestions on how they might do better, without constantly harping on a player's shortcomings as though it's a personal triumph. That contributes nothing to our forum.
  14. Week 2: VIKINGS (1-0) at Packers (1-0)

    If I ever see them I'll point them your way.
  15. Week 2: VIKINGS (1-0) at Packers (1-0)

    The truth about Cousins not accomplishing much for us, which the vast majority of Vikings fans here already agree with? That's not exactly penetrating insight, dude. Just saying.
