    It was a good game, back and forth right until the very last second. Dak Prescott and CeeDee Lamb put on a show!

    Indeed. The demon he sold his soul to clearly has continuing plans... :D

    Thank you - people act like he's suddenly the worst coach ever because he went 7-9 with one of the worst rosters and arguably the worst starting QB in the league last year.

    I think Belichick is a very good coach, but shouldn’t be the GM. Because that very poor roster last year was the roster he built.

    Oh, no, don’t get me wrong - I 100% agree that he’s one of the greatest coaches in NFL history. Has been for a long time.

    I just also find him irredeemably evil. :)

    Of course - but over the course of 20 years with one team, there are going to be patches where the roster is weak. They also had some significant injuries and opt-outs.

    The Patriots' roster was comparatively weak for a few years after the near-perfect season in 2007, too, and people were starting to question Belichick's ability as a GM.

    They went on to win three more Super Bowls over the next decade.

    Happy footballing Sunday, all! May your teams do well - unless they're the Seahawks.

    Steelers have 54 yards of offense in the first half against Buffalo. Their offensive line looks horrible and so does Roethlisberger.

    I think Buffalo forgot they had to play the second half.

    Browns player shoving a Chiefs coach. Stay classy, Cleveland.

    Looks like Aaron “I want to run the whole team” Rodgers should have spent more of the offseason practicing instead of whining.

    :lol:

    5TD’s for Winston so far today…

    Browns-Chiefs has been a heck of a game. Browns just haven’t been able to put them away and KC just took the lead.

    Heartbreaking loss for Cleveland. Just couldn’t put the Chiefs away. 33-29.

    Time for the Giants to acknowledge Jones is not working. Who's the backup?

    At half time, I was wondering why I was a Lions fan and realizing it was going to be a long season.

    In those final two minutes though, I saw a team going in the right direction and that they might actually bite some kneecaps.
