Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

Thanks, KBAK. Manning Bowl III is on this afternoon, nearly every station in the country is choosing to air it, we are not in a DMA required to air a local team, and you STILL choose to air the Jags/Raiders snoozefest. Goddamn Raiders fans. I guess I'll be seeking out "alternate" methods of watching this game.

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

Not sure if the Bears really are better on offense, or just lucky so far.

I feel like they're worse on defense than last year. Lots of problems tackling.

I'm not that excited. To start with; our team's uniforms have been voted the worst in the history of the NFL . . . this season is not starting off so good! Normally the uniform look has been the best thing about out team; now we have nothing!!
It was just as I suspected: we suck!! We played the worst team in the league from last year (by way of the draft criteria) The Chiefs; and they smoked us. We looked so bad that not only do we have the worst uniforms in the history of the NFL; we may have played the worst game ever in the history of the NFL . . . oh yeah, our quarterback got hurt too and is out, lol.
Continuing on with our losing tradition; we got smoked by the Raiders today (and lost our starting running back). Even the cable company's description of our team was pretty funny!!

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

As I type this, we're in the 2nd quarter of SNF with 5:06 left in the half, and Kaepernick has a quarterback rating of 15.3, while Wilson has a rating of 3.7. Yikes!

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

First half is over, and the *combined* output of the two quarterbacks is 8 complete passes (on 24 attempts), and 94 total passing yards. Good grief.

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

Another smackdown laid on by the Broncos. If they can keep it up, this should be a big season.

Most surprising/ exciting thing for me is Knowshon Moreno running 13 times for 93 yards. I've been as down on him as anybody throughout his career, but he put on a show. And it wasn't just the Giants sucking- Ball and Hillman didn't exactly do much with their touches. Moreno ran like a guy who was running out of time on his contract and knows that the young guns behind him were here with the express purpose of making him obsolete. I hope he can keep it up because a run game will be huge for Denver.

And the Seahawks kicked San Francisco's butt! Even with a very bad thunderstorm, we still won.
But darn it, that was quite the storm!

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

Well, congrats to Seattle and their fans. It was a beat down of epic proportions tonight, and the 49ers were humbled. Hopefully they learn composure this week because I think the worst thing about this game was A) all the penalties and B) all the stupidity that went on from this team. Not only that, but when you don't have a running game and the Seahawks just shut down the passing game, nothing good will come out of it.

We also broke the sound record. 136.6 decibels... whoa...
I was honestly wondering how long the game would be delayed.

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

The Cowboys go down to the Chiefs at Arrowhead. Most Cowboys fans will choose to blame Romo but I feel the real problem is Demarco Murray and his 12 carries for a whopping 25 yards. It appears Romo will be forced to through 40 or 50 times a game again. Going to be a long season. Possibly for the entire NFC East as well.

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

Well, let's see...

My Rams played a good second half against Atlanta, but it wasn't enough. 69 yards of rushing is not going to cut it!



Seattle looks pretty serious. Very tough.

The Chiefs are 2-0? Great Googily Moogily!

Peyton Manning...he's a sorcerer, that one.

Murray was literally the only thing good about the Cowboys last week, so perhaps the issue is the defense keyed on him while the rest of the offense failed to produce? I don't know, I didn't watch the game, but I know he was one of the shining stars last week.

Kind of. I mean Murray had 20 carries for 86 yards last week. That is decent but it was a very workmanlike performance. It certainly wasn't scary enough to have the Chiefs focusing on him. The bright spots for the Cowboys last week were Austin and Witten getting 10 catches each while Dez was blanketed.

The Chiefs did a good job of shutting off Romo's safety valve in Witten and Austin was only targeted a few times as well. Alex Smith isn't the flashiest QB in the game but will rarely lose a game with turnovers. Arrowhead is usually a tough venue for traveling teams.

Oh well. It is early and at least the rest of the NFC East went down as well.
