LOL! I know what you mean his man-crush on Rodgers was irritatingly evident today.

Regarding that game: I thought the Bears played pretty well against the (in my opinion) overrated Packers. They even had a shot to win it. I was baffled by their play calling near the goal line in the 4th quarter. Gase should have given Forte at least one shot to run it in.


You know, its funny, most Packers fans I know adamantly swear that Buck and especially Aikman have it out for them.

Packers still own the Bears, just the same ol Jay. Still, I respect them for a decent effort, their coaches called a good game, imo. Forte ran at will, we were getting in the backfield but not making the tackles.

Nice upset for the Rams as well, week 1 is always a crazy week.

Mariota has four TD passes and a 157 passer rating -- in the FIRST HALF.

Dude is pretty good.

Yep, and the Bucs D is pretty terrible too, but not too surprised about that.

Then Winston "McNabb's" it on a 3rd and 42(would have been well short even if it didn't bounce off the ground first). Glad I'm not a Bucs fan right now.

Gotta love Leslie Frazier defenses!

The Lions are really looking bad right now...it's amazing how different they've looked for most of this game compared to the first quarter.

Post Is it time to crown HIZ AZZ?!? Mariota with those 4 TDs
So, let's speculate about him making the Hall of Fame before his first game is finished,

At this current rate of production, he passes for 64 touchdowns and has no interceptions or fumbles.

There is no question that he will be magnificent. The only question is...

Hall of Famer, or First Ballot Hall of Famer?

Glad to see Mariota come out and start his career with a decisive win.

I'm about 90% certain the Bucs are the worst franchise top-to-bottom in the league. I understand the Jags and Raiders have claim to the title, but the Bucs are really gunning for that top spot.

You are talking worst roster I imagine?

I think the Jags are still the cream of the trash.

Also including coaching and personnel decisions, which is why I think the the Bucs are rapidly descending.

I wonder if Lovie will last the season? What an embarrassment.

Oakland and Jacksonville didn't look much better though...

I'm not surprised. There seems to be a segment of every fan base that feels that way about announcers. It's amusing.

You know what Winston and Mariota have in common? Their first TD pass in the NFL was to a Titan player. :D

I liked when Everson called him "Jameson" in the preseason game against the bucs. Leber didn't even seem to notice, but it was a hilarious moment.

Winston's first career pass was a TD... To the wrong team. I know everyone thinks the world of Winston, but in my limited views, the guy is Ryan Leaf.

Ah. Someone beat me to it.

I picked him up in fantasy in one of the late rounds. But I left him on the bench today. :steamed:

Then I post one about Palmer instead of one here.

I thought this thread was going to be about players committing felonies and Patriots cheating scandals, my apologies.

what a scintillating little field goal festival going on in Texas, huh?

Maybe ESPN won't run a package about Odell Beckham Jr. three times an hour now?

Post Re: Around the League - Week 1
I was thinking about Carson Palmer today, too. After he got hurt in the playoffs, he never quite seemed the same. Then he had that hold out and went to Oakland and his career seemed all but over. It looks like he's back to elite level now, and you're right, Hunter - the Cardinals could be a very scary team.

Also, this SNF game isn't terrible, but it just doesn't seem to be holding my attention.

Also, did anybody see Tyler Eifert's stats today? That could really open things up for AJ Green and make Andy Dalton look a lot better if they make the playoffs.

I thought the Cowboys were cream of the league and that the Giants were going to be an underachieving bum team.

I even had Dallas beating Giants as a "lock of the week" over at another board.
