The Falcons are the anti-Chiefs. Give the Chiefs a 20 point deficit and Mahomes can pull a rabbit out of another dimension to win the game. Give the Falcons a 20 point lead and they do everything they can to give it back.

🤣 Another glorious addition to the Falcons' illustrious and sprawling Legacy of Failure!

On a personal anecdote, I find that trying to not be a massive prick since the Chiefs won the Super Bowl is actually harder than dealing with playoff failure. Please let me know if I personally go too far.

Is that turf new this year? I don't recall hearing issues with it before. 

 

I'm not arguing with you -- just curious. 

It appears that way actually: https://www.newyorkjets.com/photos/first-look-see-the-new-turf-and-jets-end-zones-at-metlife-stadium#acf1abb5-9b22-442e-a7f7-c4917751d766

 

The NFL field operations will take a look into it, though last week the Steelers and Giants had no issues. https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2020/09/20/nfl-field-operations-to-take-a-look-at-metlife-stadium-turf/

I wouldn’t blame the turf. Injuries are unusually high across the league. This is just showing that the players need full off seasons (preseason included) to get their bodies use game speed and prevent injuries.

The fact that Russell Wilson and Drew Brees have never won the NFL MVP is quite surprising.

Metcalf is everything Belichick thought Harry would be.


Yeah Harry was great in college and is pretty physically gifted, but it’s really nothing in comparison to Metcalf. That guy is an absolute monster of a human being. I never quite understood the comparisons between those two.

Wow, Jac Collinsworth is doing postgame now. Now here's a guy who probably got that job because of who his dad is. Way to put the N in NBC.

If I had a dollar for everytime I heard "Jets go 3 and out", "Jets send out the punting unit" I would be wealthy. 2 pathetic performances to start the season.

The ultimate clown moment was allowing a 55 yard run on 3rd and 31. How does that happen?

Just seems to happen in that stadium. Rams converted a 3rd-and-33 against the Giants in 2017.

Because it's the Jets. They, like the Falcons, have an illustrious and storied Legacy of Failure.

I tell you what, though...Gardner Minshew ain't trying to have no piece of Trevor Lawrence in Jacksonville next season.

 

That was a darned good game between two teams who are now more similar than they are different.  The one thing I'm seeing with all these young Jaguars players--and really the whole team--is that they seem to really be playing for Minshew.  I know it's just two games, but the thing I'm seeing out of them this year that I didn't see last year is that extra effort, that extra pop.  And this Robinson guy...hoo boy.  (Now, depending on how things go in the future, let's hope they don't go Marlins mode and blow the whole thing up in a few years for more draft picks and $--pretty much like they just did this past offseason.) The Jaguars really do have a young and promising crew, and if not for that last-minute INT by Landry off a tipped pass, Jacksonville could've easily won that game. 

 

Which speaks to something Tennessee needs to shore up: that back end.  I think they're relying too much on pressure up front at the expense of bending on the back side, and it showed yesterday.  That said, it's only the second game and I'm sure Vrabel sees in and will address it.  As far as Ryan Tannehill goes...well, as much as I liked Marcus Mariota, he was the Jason Williams to Ryan Tannehill's Mike Bibby--entertaining, but erratic at times, while Tannehill, at least right now, is far steadier a hand.  I don't know that that hand was worth $107M, but still, he's a much steadier hand.  And these Titans are looking DARN good through two games.  They are much tougher this early into the season than they were last year.  (I can't even call them the Snatit no more, dang it!) 

 

This is rough on me since I'm conflicted between home state team and the team I became a fan of during the almost five years I spent living in Nashville--but I guess that means I can enjoy the game that much more!

Not even one vote, according to the Sunday Night Football crew, which is even more surprising.

Who is this guy on the Saints wearing Drew Brees' jersey and what has he done with the real Drew Brees? 

 

Drew is frankly too old to be a starter in the NFL; his inability to accurately throw the long ball has led to him becoming a liability on offense.  He's been checking down all night; I don't think he completed a pass over 20 yards, and I'm not sure if he even attempted one.

 

Doesn't matter; the bigger problem is the defense,  with players like troublemaker Malcolm Jenkins, whose mouth is much bigger than his game.

Are telling me old man Brady is going to be the best QB in that division? 😂
