    Week Two TV Maps

    On a separate topic (but one that doesn't deserve its own thread), is there any logic to espn's Quarterback Rating? Take for example these stats from last week, and then guess who had the better QBR QB #1: 20-30, 191 yards, 0 TD, 3 INT, 1 Sack (-9 yards), 6.4 yards per attempt QB #2: 19-33...

    Semi-OT: What is the most unwatchable type of football game?

    Most of these are cases of continuing way too long (why are networks so conservative about making a change?), but some should have been fired or demoted on day one Dan Fouts Howard Cosell Tom Jackson Tony Siragusa Terry Bradshaw OJ Simpson John Madden Dick Enberg Phil Maguire Brent Musburger...

    J.J. Taylor - Anyone else impressed by him?

    Based on the idea that an NFL running back is more or less an adult version of the old childhood game of 'kill the man with the ball', I see no problem with multiple productive running backs. The days of the 'feature back' are gone, with just a few exceptions. I would rather have a solid group...

    Alamo's Predict The Score Alamo's Predict the Score RESULTS, Week 1 MIA @ NE

    I was close on how many points the Pats would score, but to be honest I was lucky in that regard due to the Harry fumble and the missed field goal. The Dolphins improved their secondary, but the Miami pass coverage was never an issue due to the Pats offensive game plan. For Miami I was thinking...

    Wouldn't mind a trade for Jack Doyle

    Indy has already paid Doyle his $6 million roster bonus for 2020, creating a disincentive for the Colts to trade him now - at least early in the season. Picking Doyle up later in the season would be fine from a cap perspective, but it would most likely only be for the remainder of 2020 and not...

    Week Two TV Maps

    There are a few decent Thursday night games among that group, but not that many when you consider ever team has to play at least one game on Thursday. Oct 15 — Kansas City Chiefs at Buffalo Bills Nov 5 — Green Bay Packers at San Francisco 49ers Nov 12 — Indianapolis Colts at Tennessee Titans...

    J.J. Taylor - Anyone else impressed by him?

    I was thinking back to the play just before the end of the half, when White probably should have gone out of bounds but did not - and then came limping off the field after being tackled with 25 seconds left. Prior to that Taylor had just one touch, but then on the Pats second possession of the...

    Week Two TV Maps

    I could tell you, but then I would have to kill you. You're a good guy, I don't want to do that. No, JP Kirby - a Patriots fan, by the way - is the genius who puts in all the hard work making the maps.

    I feel like I watched a different game than most of you

    Was the user name a give away? A quick google search came up with only one other identical user name, and it is at Jet Nation. I suppose there's nothing worth talking about over there, so the next best thing is to hope for your rival to perform poorly.

    35 million in cap space, are there NO quality WRs or TEs available?

    Do we really want a one-year rental? It's one thing if the end result is winning the Super Bowl, but let's be realistic - that's not going to happen this season, and the compensatory picks would not arrive until the 2022 draft.

    Semi-OT: What is the most unwatchable type of football game?

    At one point last week Seattle had back-to-back false starts, followed by an offensive holding penalty. In 1971 the Patriots had a 4th & 63 at Dallas. And in 2011 the Bears had six false start penalties in a game at Detroit - in the first half! The two teams combined for 26 penalties for 198...

    Week Two TV Maps

    Yeah, I agree - not really any compelling games this week other than Pats-Seahawks - and hopefully that does not get postponed. There are only a few games that involve two teams that both have a chance to finish with winning records, but even those don't appear to be very interesting: Chiefs at...

    35 million in cap space, are there NO quality WRs or TEs available?

    I should have used the word 'target'. My guess is that Byrd was seldom (if ever) option one or two, but was primarily used on mid to deep routes to keep the safeties away from the line of scrimmage. I am assuming that is what the coaching plan was. Considering where Newton must be on his...

    OT-ish: The gambling thread

    Odds as of Tuesday, give or take a little depending on where you shop. Bengals at Browns (-5½), 43½ Rams (-1) at Eagles, 46 Panthers at Bucs (-9), 48½ Broncos at Steelers (-6½), 41 Falcons at Cowboys (-5), 52½ 49ers (-7) at Jets, 42½ Bills (-5½) at Dolphins, 41½ Vikings at Colts (-3), 48 Lions...

    Air Quality Index in Seattle (update: NFL says it's "monitoring the situation")

    I would think that logistically the NFL would need to make a decision in the next 24-48 hours, as they would also need to move another game to Sunday night - and need to give enough time to NBC to amend their plans with all their broadcasting equipment.

    There was not one single offensive play call for Byrd.
