Watching skill position players throw passes is way better than watching Drew Lock throw passes 10 yards over someone's head on a 5 yard route or hospital balls. Or better yet, complete a deep pass he was trying to throw out of bounds.
    Plus the protocol wasn't exactly ironed out that early in the season. Neither is it now, but they have been more consistent.

    Buried in the news this morning, the Saints were fined 500k and removed of a 7th round draft pick for their post game celebration without PPE or distancing. If thats a hint to what is coming to the broncos, then RIP because the NFL has video evidence of the broncos not complying with the PPE requirements. I'm not certain what will become of the Ravens because who knows if the NFL has video evidence of what people are saying about the trainer.

    Next week is gonna be interesting because we will likely start seeing cases pop up everywhere due to thanksgiving.

    There's around 3 min played in this Cards vs Pats game, and I'm already wondering why I'm watching. Such uninspired play calling on offense and absolutely no resistance on defense. At least show up to compete. =/

    Denver would be a repeat offender also, they got Fangio earlier in the season for not wearing a mask on the sideline. The part that might screw them the most is the idiot QBs lied about not being in close contact with Driskel. Plus, if what some of the Denver media are saying is true, the position group has been ignoring protocols for a while.

    On the plus side, at least they aren't starting Mike Glennon.

    This LV-Atlanta game is definitely one of those “neither team deserves to win” games. Atlanta scored the first TD of the game with just over two minutes left in the half, and they needed penalties on LV just to get there

    Patriots just got robbed of a TD. They flagged something for a blind side block which clearly wasn't. Dude who got blocked even put his hands out to beat the block as it was coming in. What a crock of shit.

    At what point in his contract do the Raiders start to accept Gruden isn't the guy?

    Mayfield has been awful at short passes to his receivers in stride this game. Either throwing it just behind, above, or rocketing it. So many 3rd downs needlessly lost. Reminds me of Flacco actually, how he'd just get it in the area of his guys and they'd snatch it.

    Raiders at least making it clear that they deserve to lose more.

    And Buffalo really making this game interesting by having a Chargers-like meltdown, good thing they're playing the Chargers and will probably survive.

    Patriots win on a last sec Field Goal. Doesn;t make the play of the offense any better, but at least the Defense and Special Teams had good games. On to next week and hopefully a better showing on offense.

    I'm starting to think that the way they looked for most of today is just their basic state though and that there is no growth and no improvement. Just accidents where things work out for a few plays long enough to get a TD.

    Yeah, better than anyone thought he would play based on his most recent starts.

    Raiders definitely can't survive the playoffs with this team.

    Seeing how the Chargers pissed away every chance in this game, I am starting to think Lynn is the worst coach in the universe.

    It is amazing how we went from "Firing Lynn would be a PR move and a mistake" last season to "Firing Lynn might be the smart move at this point."

    Geeze, the Dolphins are 7-4 despite a double QB benching (you can't tell me this thumb thing isn't an overblown injury benching). Can we get Flores on the short track to Coach of the Year?
    Legion made WoD's mistakes into traditions. It is my belief when all is said and done we will regard Legion as the beginning of the end.

    Pretty sure the Raiders left their offensive line in Las Vegas.

    Now that Patricia is gone, likely the only worse coach then Lynn is Gase.

    Is this Chiefs-Bucs game real life or someone playing Madden because bloody hell Hill is unreal. He's putting up college numbers.

    Saints and Broncos combined for 25 yards of passing offense in the 1st half (was 1 yard before the last 15 sec of the half). Broncos are also the first team since the Broncos to not complete a pass in the 1st half. This isn't even good bad, this is just bad, bad.

    So.

    The Bills turned over the ball 3 times in 7 plays.

    The Chargers only got 3 points off it, down 13 points in the 4th quarter.

    Thank God we were playing the Chargers, who Chargered it up even with incredibly shit calls by the refs.

    I like Anthony Lynn as a guy, and he was a good OC when he was here in Buffalo. He should be fired. There was so much mismanagement in this game it's shocking. On 4th and 21 with like 30+ seconds left, down 10, Herbert miraculously completes a Hail Mary (2nd in 2 games against the Bills, not counting the one on the previous play canceled out by OPI)...but they only get to the 2.

    What they should do: spike the ball, kick the FG, try and recover the onside kick, set up for another Hail Mary attempt to tie it.
    WHAT THEY ACTUALLY FUCKING DID: Rushed down the field, and on 1st and Goal, HANDED OFF INSIDE TO EKELER WHO WAS STUFFED SHORT OF THE END ZONE. At this point, the game was lost, they didn't have time for 2 scores, BECAUSE THEY HAD ZERO TIMEOUTS AT THIS POINT. Then they spike the ball. Game has less than 10s left. No way they can win. They decide to run another play for some reason, maybe because the spread was -4 and they wanted to cover. OLine drops into pass protection on 3rd and goal, while Herbert tries to QB sneak it, and gets stuffed, again. Game over.

    Like, I literally would have lost my mind if I was a Chargers fan. Luckily they lost all of those when they moved to LA. This doesn't even touch the insane mismanagement before that last drive, or their inability to do anything on 3 TOs and a +2 TO differential. Like holy shit.

    Taysom Hill is not looking good today. Thankfully the Saints are being gifted a free win.

    Despite having half of the starters out, Denver's pass defense is still pretty good. Especially recently with DeMarcus Walker and Malik Reed living in the backfield. They just get ran over in the 2nd half of games because of the d-line being so thin and the offense being horrible most games.
