I'm psyched! The Broncos won a Super Bowl with Aqib Talib coached by Wade Phillips, and the Rams offense is already better than Denver's was that year. With Talib and Peters on defense, I like LA's chances this year. (And let's not forget that they already had Aaron Donald and and Michael Brockers.)

I'm not sure how much gas Sherman has left in the tank after injuries to both Achilles tendons; but if he still can play anything like he used to, we could see a return of the days when the division belonged to the Rams and 49ers.

Best,

Geoff

Lots of deals in the NFL right now. The biggest story is that Minnesota purged their wealth of quarterbacks and is bringing in Kirk Cousins for a three-year fully guaranteed salary; but the shocker for me is that Green Bay cut Aaron Rodgers's favorite target, Jordy Nelson. Not surprisingly, New Orleans signed Drew Brees to a new deal. More here:

Kirk Cousins plans to sign 3-year, $84M deal with Vikings

Case Keenum expected to sign with Denver Broncos

QB Sam Bradford to sign with the Arizona Cardinals

Jets ‘working on a deal’ for QB Teddy Bridgewater: report

Packers cut veteran WR Jordy Nelson, will sign TE Jimmy Graham

Drew Brees, Saints agree to a new two-year, $50M deal to keep QB in New Orleans

Cardinals release running back Adrian Peterson, extend offer to tackle Xavier Williams

The QB position is going as I expected in free agency.

I'm not surprised that QB Cousins got that deal from Minny. Hopefully, he'll be able to prove that he's worth every dollar. I certainly don't think he'll crash and burn like Brock Osweiler. laugh

Keenum should do well in Denver. The Jets are a good team for Bridgewater to restart his playing career. I hope Bradford gives the Cardinals an entire season.

Players are moving around the league quickly. Gonna need a spreadsheet to keep up with who's playing on which team. grin cool

I'm glad he's getting a good payday with the Raiders. How close Jordy still is to his prime is yet to be determined; but at the very least, he should be a good locker room presence and a strong mentor to the younger players.

Best,

Geoff

Don't waste any time on that diva. Let Dez languish in Jacksonville, Detroit or Miami.

Once he accepts that he'll never win a Super Bowl, he'll retire about 3 years from now. grin cool

Draft Night

Will the Bears do something sensible and take Roquan Smith or Tremane Edmunds, or Quenton Nelson, Mike McGlinchey, or maybe Denzel Ward...... or will they be tricky and do something stupid again trying to show genius.

QB 1st pick?

Barkley to the Giants? Or Eli's replacement...?

Who will trade up? Or down?

So many questions...

A rumor gaining a ton of traction is Browns will take Baker Mayfield because Scot McCloughan (former Redskins GM) is a huge Mayfield fan. Scot McCloughan is a draft consultant to the Browns. I would take Darnold over Mayfield. But its the Browns ... So who knows.

Yes, it should be entertaining to watch it all unfold. Will the Browns take two quarterbacks as some have predicted?

And for those of us whose teams underperformed last year, the Draft is the upside. cool

Giants never played Davis Webb, so we don’t know how he is perceived. My gut thinks they think he’s as good as any of the prospects, so they go for Barkley.
They don’t really have any trade partners; Bills aren’t high enough. If Barkley goes 1, they’ll take Chubb. if they do take a QB, I am guessing Rosen.

I wouldn't either .... Not in the 1st round. NFL Ds will pick him like a chicken. He wasn't accurate in college. At least he is a cold weather player.

The running game needs to be better in order to make the passing attack a real threat. Surely, Chucky will shore up that o-line if they haven't already. wink cool

His first pick was an OT. They have one of the best centers in the game, and two killer Gs. Chucky knows...

Adding Doug Martin may help too - who knows? I believe Richard and Washington are more key than Martin or Lynch, though.

Every year, the Packers use the draft to bolster their defense; and every year, the defense winds up being mediocre. This year was no exception, except that the picks were made by a new GM and will be mentored by a new defensive coordinator. Perhaps that will make a positive difference...

Geoff

The NFL is up to its usual tricks... (Political commentary and profanity most definitely included in this link, FYI.)

“And just in case anyone is wondering how much the NFL wanted to pay us for using ‘Legend Has It,’ that would be zero dollars [...]" - EL-P

EDIT: If the link doesn't work for you, it's because the forum has censored the URL, lol. Just write in your favourite four-letter word where you see some stars near the end.

Disregarding the political side which we don't discuss in this forum, I'm glad artists continue to say "no" to the NFL's requests for free entertainment. They certainly don't ask their players to play for free. In fact—from the groundskeepers all the way up to Roger Goodell—I'd be surprised if the NFL has had the gall to ask anyone else to provide services for free. rolleyes

Geoff

Strictly speaking from an economic theory perspective, it seems to me the NFL is the logical end of the worst excesses of the free market system gone to seed, if you will.

The league, the owners and everyone associated with professional football is now into it for only one reason - the accumulation of personal wealth.

With the way individual players are treated, I might think more would be tempted to seek employment elsewhere...except for the draw of where else could I ever make this much cheddar.

I don't know if I've crossed the line into politics here - that wasn't my intention - it simply seems to me the for a long time now, the promise of personal wealth has squeezed out other motivations in ways I don't see in other professional sports leagues.

But what do I know. I've never played professional sports, I'm just a dumb fan on the outside looking in.

Skins rookie RB season ending injury

The 49ers had 5 guys hurt yesterday, probably no one this bad. Tough way to start. At least Guice got hurt early in the year and should be back for camp next season. Still sucks. Sorry ProfD.

Yep. Not a great way to start the season. We know the NFC East requires a solid running game.

Hopefully, the other RBs will carry the load and allow the rookie to learn from the sidelines.

My bigger concern is the brittle nature of today's athletes. Theyre tearing up knees on basic football plays and doing routine stuff.

I know players are bigger, faster and stronger nowadays. Still, I believe the downside is steroids are making them brittle. I have no medical license or proof. laughcool

Yeah, all the weight lifting and (cough) etc. doesn’t make them ligaments any stronger. The dreaded ACL, especially in a preseason game, is just gut wrenching.

Nice play by Sam Darnold tonight, and Baker Mayfield looked pretty promising last night. I think the Browns might win a few games this year. The current over/under for Browns wins I saw was 4.5. I’d probably take the over. Lot of talent on that team. It would be quite pathetic if they got the 1st pick in the draft next year.

I am watching a replay of NE playing the Eagles preseason game. Brady has been distributing the ball with the same old thoughtfulness and precision. His longevity is amazing. 41 and these guys are still the team to beat in the AFC.

I'm glad to see a deal that practically guarantees that Aaron Rodgers will remain a Packer until he retires. If any NFL player deserves the money, he does:

Record extension for Packers, Aaron Rodgers could reach $180M total

Khalil Mack to the Bears? For apparently two #1 picks? Interesting. Certainly strengthens the Bears D, especially when Green Bay was trying to get him too.
But 2 ones?
I know Gruden said the defense wasn’t that good last year with Khalil Mack. So, now he’s gone, they save a bundle and get picks.

I don't know. On the surface it makes sense too me but no analysts in Chicago expected especially Hub. It's expensive.

I'm skeptical. Bears need a pass rusher bad and Mack is a 27 year old monster who has never missed a game due to injury....but his production fell off last year and the Bears are going to pay him whole lotta money. The Raiders staff should know him better than anyone and they didn't want to pay him what an elite pass rusher is worth. I hope it works out well. I hope they don't rush him on the field if he isn't in game shape and get him hurt.

It looks like Khalil Mack demanded to be paid more than Aaron Donald:

Rams' Aaron Donald signs record 6-year, $135 million extension

That record lasted all of one day.

I was really hoping Mack would wind up with the Packers, but at that price? Maybe not so much.

Even so, I'm not too happy that Green Bay will have to face Mack twice a year.

aj is familiar with amari cooper....
don’t think this trade bodes well for him getting much playing time.

The first regular season game is the day after tomorrow, so be sure to sign up and get those picks in soon!

Dave, I don't see a point spread in the Pick'em list. Are we betting against the spread again this year?

Yeah, the Falcons offense looked like a one trick pony. In fact, both offenses looked flawed while the defenses looked dominant.

Nonetheless, for all of Nick Foles's failings as a quarterback, he once again demonstrated that he's a better receiver than Tom Brady.

Best,

Geoff

P.S. Sorry about my confusion regarding the ranking of your favorite teams, Dave.

Falcons just don't match up physically in terms of impact toughness. It went how my son said it would..... Really close in the beginning but the Falcons wouldn't be able to close it out in the 4th quarter after 3 quarter of Philly love. That Eagles team has some rough dudes on that Defense.

Man I checked the points for Sunday. Finally some sensibility. All these local homers think the Bears are going to win the conference. Spread had the Bears as 6.5 point dogs. Bears maybe fun this year but .... come on. smile

Giveaway takeaway ratio should be better. Sack production should improve. Not necessarily from Mack but Mack may open things up for Hicks and Floyd, You can't double team everyone.

Hoping for the best.

The Packers were being dominated on both sides of the ball before Rodgers went down. Doesn't bode well for the season.

I didn't watch much of tonight's Rams/Raiders game; but between last night's contest and tonight's, Khalil Mack's reputation got a nice boost.

Dave, my condolences on the Raiders' loss; but congratulations on taking Week One in the Pick'em Pool.

Best,

Geoff

I wonder what Giants fans were thinking last night, if they were watching the Jets and their rookie quarterback Darnold.

Granted the Giants played against a much tougher defense (Jax) than the Jets did (Lions). But when will the Giants again have a bad enough record to allow them to draft a top quarterback?

The only man on the Bears less experienced at his job than the QB is the head coach.

I doubt that anyone on this Forum has ever seen a quarterback put on a clinic as Aaron Rodgers put on this past week. Rodgers has a sprained knee, and was playing with a gimby leg. Unbelievable.

If any New England fans want to mention Brady in the same sentence with Rodgers, I'd say they'd be wrong. Sure Brady has 5 titles, Rodgers has one. But Brady has always had help.

I don't even watch the cry baby Steelers anymore. They're selfish, childish, and under achievers. Ben sucks. 5 turn overs against Cleveland?

I sure hope that Rogers can play the rest of this season. Its a pleasure to watch a real professional.

Yeah I do remember reading about it, but I didn't see it. Of course Rodgers was playing with a gimby leg. Farve had a habit of turning the ball over at the worst possible times. But I loved to watch him play. Never a dull moment.

Thanks, guys, for the Rodgers and Favre respect! cool

I was lucky enough to see both games we're discussing and they were indeed both amazing examples of overcoming adversity.

At this point, it's clear that at the very least Rodgers is heads and shoulders above any other quarterback ever in passing touchdown/interception ratio; and he blows Favre away in that respect. Favre, of course, handily beat all other quarterbacks when it came to durability; and while Rodgers is undeniably tough, he's about average in that regard. Other than those two qualities, I look at them as roughly equal in ability. Packers fans have been extraordinarily lucky to have them at quarterback for over a quarter-century.

Best,

Geoff

Favre was one of the most fun-to-watch quarterbacks I ever watched play, and his gunslinging style really stood out because when he started, the NFL was boring to watch with so many offenses seeming to be governed by a risk management approach. In contrast, I can't really remember cases where someone said that Rodgers blew a game with a careless pass at the wrong time. Considering how much he puts the ball up, that's saying a lot.

I can't think of another quarterback more exciting than Favre. Of course, part of the excitement was that he took more risks. They paid off more often than not, but we all can think of times when they didn't.

Interestingly, despite holding the record for interceptions, Favre ranks 35th on the passing touchdown/interception ratio chart I linked to above—a respectable rank among all the quarterbacks in the history of the NFL. He ranks above Roger Staubach and Eli Manning, for example. This, of course, speaks to how many touchdowns Favre threw, a number which has only been bested by Peyton Manning.

Best,

Geoff

No doubt the Pack has thrived on QB brilliance twice. In related news, the betting world is waiting to see if Rodgers plays Sunday. Big drop off with Kiser.

First half of the Packers game I just knew I'd lost my week 1 Fantasy Football matchup when Rodgers went down.

I had no idea Rodgers would come back in the second half and torch the Bears. Definitely a classic performance. Possibly more dramatic than the aforementioned Favre game against the Raiders.

Packers fans have certainly been lucky at the QB position over a couple decades now. cool

While Lions fans have had nothing but mediocre play at the RB position in the 20 years since Barry Sanders has retired, sigh.

Well, the Vikings never led during regulation; but they tied it up with 31 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter, and no one scored in overtime. A missed 52-yard field goal attempt by Mason Crosby—with seconds left in regulation—could have won the game for the Packers, and two missed attempts by Daniel Carlson could have won the game in overtime for the Vikings; but the final result was a tie.

The Packers start their 100th season at 1-0-1.

Best,

Geoff

Pretty wild. Two ties as of week 2. I am thinking that hasn’t happened in a long time.

It’s going to be really tough for Jameis Winston to get his job back. Fitz is cooking.

The Broncos managed to squeak out a win in the final seconds of the game today. My condolences, Dave. It's tough to watch your team lead all day and then not come out with a win. (Kind of like the Packers earlier today, except they at least wound up with a tie.)

On the plus side, the Broncos/Raiders rivalry is alive and well.

Best,

Geoff

Last, but not least, the Rams appear to be who we thought they were.

They have a league best combined score of 63-13 in two games and are 2-0.

A team needs a quarterback with more elusiveness to get anywhere these days. Eli does not have this anymore - it was painfully obvious to me, all last season.

I wonder if the Jets will outscore the Oakland A's today (http://www.espn.com/mlb/boxscore?gameId=380920111). I'm glad the Angels picked up a field goal, to avoid being totally embarrassed in today's game.

Which is the biggest surprise for you after Week Three?

1) There are four teams in the NFL with a 1-1-1 record
2) Three of those teams—the Packers, Steelers, and Vikings—are typically among the best teams of the league. One of those teams—the Browns—is typically among the worst teams of the league
3) The Patriots are 1-2
4) The Dolphins are 3-0

For me, it's #1. I can't remember ever seeing four teams with one win, one loss, and one tie at once. If it's happened before, I doubt it was after overtime was established for regular season games.

Best,

Geoff

At least we know that the Rams are 4-0. wink

It's nice when your second favorite team can help your favorite team by knocking off your fourth favorite team.

I was a bit disappointed in both defenses, expecting a little Fearsome Foursome and Purple People Eater nostalgia to kick in; but the Rams' D eventually came through.

That the Bears would be 4-0 if the coach on week 1 had known how to play call with a lead and several defensive play makers who were not yet in game shape and a RB averaging over 5 yds a carry who he wasn't feeding the ball to. The one loss is on the coach for gasing out the defense in 4th quarter. I only expected 7-9 tops!

Congrats to Drew Brees in breaking the record and being #1 in passing yards. thu

However, if ever there was an overt attempt to insure a record was broken during a primetime home game that was it.

The Skins defense played as if they received bonus money for failing to pressure the QB and blowing coverages. rolleyes

Needing 35 yards to break the record and throwing a 62 yard TD right before halftime seemed like something straight out of a movie script. laughcool

Wow indeed! thu

A tale of two weeks:

Mason Crosby rebounds from 5-miss week with game-winning field goal

Mason Crosby, the Packers' all-time scoring leader, was the difference maker in last week's loss (0 of 5) and this week's victory (6 of 6). He followed the worst week of his career with a perfect game. It was moving to see him bounce back!

Other than that, the Packers didn't look very good against the 49ers. I'm just glad they have a bye before facing the Rams and the Patriots back-to-back on the road.

Best,

Geoff

In addition, the Chargers (loved or not) are 5-2. 14 games between 2 LA teams and only 2 losses. Thats pretty amazing.

Speaking about San Die..the Chargers, I watched most of the London matchup and was taken back when the Titans went for the 2 point conversion at the end of the game. Ok, maybe Vrabel had the gut going for him. But then the Chargers get called for a penalty, ball goes to the 1, and Mariota lines up in shotgun. facepalm
Wasn’t Vrabel on the Pats? Get behind center and quick snap with one of your well-practiced quarterback sneaks. Maybe he wasn’t paying attention to the offense way back when.

I agree, Mike and Dave, it's pretty impressive!

If I recall correctly—before this season began—both Bill Plaschke and Tim Cowlishaw (on ESPN's Around the Horn) picked the Rams to face the Chargers in the Super Bowl.

I'm actually not too surprised about the Rams, as they were already very good last year and went all-in on player acquisitions during the offseason. It would, nonetheless, be pretty amazing if they managed to go undefeated for the entire season.

That said, if they're going to lose one, I'd like it to be next week when they face the Packers. I realize it's not very likely though. In fact:

But suppose they were correct about your lack of knowledge (and you knew it), you would still know THAT at least; and their certainty would thus be proved incorrect. QED.

Eli or his brother Peyton were never able to avoid a rush. Eli is getting long in the tooth, but their offensive line is terrible. I watched the first half of their game against Atlanta. Eli was getting no more than 2 seconds to get rid of the ball. Can't make plays on your back.

Wow, that was a tough loss: a kickoff return fumble cost Aaron Rodgers a chance to put together another game winning drive. Of course, if the Packers are going to lose to any team, I'm glad it's the Rams. As a fan of both teams, I think this was a game that could have gone either way.

The last time I can remember the Rams playing against the Packers in the Los Angeles area, the Rams were near at the end of their original California stay. I remember sitting in the stands, being impressed at how many Green Bay fans were in attendance.

Today was no different. Judging on crowd noise, I'd say roughly 30-40% of the fans at the Coliseum were rooting for the Packers. The Rams were even dressed in throwback uniforms of the '90s. I was swept away with nostalgia while watching the game on my TV set.

Best,

Geoff

As far as I'm concerned, Gregg Williams should have been banned from the NFL for life after Bountygate. I'm very disappointed to see him promoted to interim head coach by the Browns after firing Hue Jackson:

A NFL focused on player safety should never have Gregg Williams as an interim head coach

There was 2:05 remaining in the Packers-Rams game at the last kickoff. If there were no return, the Packers (with Aaron Rodgers) would have gotten the ball at their 25 with 2:05 remaining, could have passed the ball in the middle of the field and gotten a clock stoppage at the 2 minute warning, without using a time out.

I think the Packers coach should have instructed the returner to not return the ball, unless forced to do so by a short kick. And I think the Rams coach should have instructed his kicker to kick off a little short so that it did not land in the end zone, to force a time-wasting return.

No doubt, harmonizer, on all counts. There was a good discussion about this here:



We often focus on the final plays affecting the outcome, but it's also worth considering that the Rams margin of victory was due to the first points they put on the board: the safety.

Geoff

Rest assured that Williams will not get the head coaching job and he may not be retained as defensive coordinator when the dust settles.

If they cannot lure Oklahoma head coach Lincoln Riley from college football to become their head coach, the Browns will probably look for the 2nd coming of Sean McVay who is being heralded as a coaching wunderkind.

I wouldn't be surprised if New England offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels isn't on the Browns list of head coaching candidates. Not that McDaniels wants to leave Foxboro.

It will be interesting to see who the Browns ultimately hire to lead their young talent. cool

(Sorry, I couldn't resist. wink )

Seriously though, I'm confident that the Browns will eventually become winners again, and they probably have the talent to do so now; but the organization itself is so dysfunctional that I'm not sure we'll live to see a great Browns team.

I'm also pretty confident that you're right about Williams not getting the permanent HC job, and I hope he'll get canned by the next HC. Even so, it bothers me to see him get a job as water boy in the NFL, let alone as an interim HC.

By the way, congrats on taking a four game lead in the Pick 'em Pool, ProfD. I'm struggling just to be in third place behind you and Dave this year.

Best,

Geoff

Over reaction? Ya think? I'm not so sure. idk

He threw a temper tantrumon the sidelines about the way he was being used towards the end of the Rams game. He was told to take a knee in the end zone with that fateful kickoff. He diecided to run it out to show everybody...and he fumbled the ball, and cost his team the game.

No way he was ever going to take another snap as a Packer. hand

Ty Montgomery had a very bad day without a doubt; but he had a good career with the Packers overall, highlighted by switching from wide receiver to a dual threat running back when Green Bay needed one. As a fan, I was upset with his actions in Sunday's game; but I was happy with his play up until that point.

I think it's worth considering Ty Montgomery's explanation of what happened. Apparently, he choose to return the kick because was worried that he might take a knee on the half foot line:

http://www.espn.com/video/clip?id=25121203

Obviously, that doesn't cover the way he behaved on the sideline; and regardless of why, he made a poor choice on the return. I just think there may be more to the story than we saw.

Best,

Geoff

I hope it's that simple...but if it is, they may pay a huge price for it, largely because they want to pull off a big auspicious move to a new market in a few years.

I'm leaning towards believing the stories about the front office friction with Chucky. Looks a bit like what happened in Philly with Chip Kelly.

Steelers-Panthers Thursday Night Football. 52-21 Steelers.

I listened to the game on the radio last night, and watched the highlights this morning. That's the most points the Steelers have scored in years, and the best game they played as long as I can remember. Carolina made some mistakes that led to Steeler points, but the game was not as lopsided as the score would indicate. Carolina moved the ball but was unable to put it in the end zone on many of their drives.

The Steelers Defense is looking better, there was nowhere to go but up. Ben was 22 for 25 for 328 yards and 5 touchdowns. That was the best game he's had in 10 years.

My opinion from watching the game is that it looked as lopsided as the score indicates. laugh

Sure, Carolina moved the ball at times but for the most part, the Steelers defense had Cam Newton in a pressure cooker throughout the game.

Also IMO, the Panthers have a one-dimensional offense. The major threats are the QB and RB. They do not have game-breaking WRs. The unimaginative play-calling doesn't help either. rolleyes

Defensive coordinators should already know from Super Bowl L how to shut down Carolina. The Steelers went there last night and pulled out a can of whup azz. grin cool

The Bears look good today. Except for Cody Parkey, who has hit the four uprights FOUR times now against the Lions. Weird. Never seen anything like that before.

...and it's so bad that the Bears elected to go for a two-point extra conversion when they were leading 32-10 with the fans cheering when they heard of the decision. Wow.

I was kind of looking forward to the Saints at Cowboys later this season.
Too bad for Dez, the Saints are on a roll.

Ken maybe it was just being merciful- missing 5 is worse than 4. Tough day for a kicker, though hitting the upright that many times is something.

Unlike any other position on the team it's usually not just a "tough" day, but a "last" day as well....

I thoroughly enjoyed watching New England get their butts kicked yesterday. Brady was sacked, rushed, and threw 18 incompletions when they stopped counting and showing it on the screen. A few former Patriot players including DD Lewis and Butler are now on the Titans football team and enjoyed giving it back to New England.

In other news, apparently Bell is not going to report to the Steelers, so he will have to sit out the season. Good riddance.
