Agree, but lets keep in mind that it is still early.

Wasn't it 2 seasons ago that K.C. and Buffalo started out scoring like 40 points a game for 3 or 4 weeks, then tanked the rest of their seasons?

16 games doesn't seem like a lot, but you're right, it's a long season.

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

Damn, I hate the Chiefs actually looking like a real football team now. The Texans have the Ravens, Seahawks, 49ers, and Chiefs in four of their next five games. I guess I'm fixing to find out what kind of team the Texans really are. LOL

Yeah but it's how they have been winning that lends me to think these wins are no fluke. The Chiefs are kind of reminding me of the Alex Smith era 49ers. There defense is extremely physical and hard hitting and they don't turn it over that much on offense. They don't quite have the same talent on defense but they are pretty close. They are going to be a handful for opposing teams the rest of the season, especially playing in Arrowhead.

The Browns just traded Trent Richardson for the Colts' next first round draft pick.

And this is why the Browns are in a permanent state of rebuilding.
I could understand a smidgeon if he didn't fit in with the plans for the franchise moving forward, but if you're going to change coaches and GM's every 2-3 years, what's the point?

I don't know if it's Murray or the Rams run defense. Murray was absolutely stuffed last week. I mean don't get me wrong I'm happy to see the Cowboys offense show up for once and run the ball effectively. It makes a huge difference when the running game takes a little off Romo's plate. He played clean and didn't have to throw the ball a thousand times.

I really like Sam Bradford and I think the Rams are only a few drafts away from getting him the help he needs.

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

This hasn't been a good morning to be the losing team... 5 of the 9 early games have been blowouts, including scores of 31-7, 38-0, 30-9, 31-7, and 23-3.

Well, the last time he played against us he rushed for 253 yards. They held the Falcons to 36 yards rushing, and the Cardinals to 86 yards.

There's just something about the match-up against him that makes the Rams look like amateurs.

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

I feel like someone in this thread was sticking up for Murray last week...

Unfortunately, I sat him on the bench in my fantasy league in favor of Arian Foster and Chris Johnson. Guess I'm the idiot. I'm losing that game big time.

I know we had discussed Murray. He had an average first game and then had trouble getting anything going against the Chiefs last week. I think it has more to do with the Dallas O-line. They have gotten somewhat better at pass protection but I really think they struggle at opening running lanes at times. It all depends on whether or not Murray can get that initial push or break tackles. That may explain why his numbers are in flux weak to weak.

Seahawks beat Jacksonville 45-17. Thanks to the Colts for beating the 49ers. I still am a little stunned we're at the top of the division this early.

Always good to see the Steelers go down. It's even better when Chicago wins.

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

The 49ers look terrible, and so do the Rams. Thursday night's game will have an early season smell of desperation. The loser goes 1-3.
