    They shouldn't let the Rams on prime time any more.

    I feel like NFL needs a ref like boxing and UFC to tell players they can't play. Something is just wrong with Matthew Stafford and they are wrong for letting him play

    Lol, do you just watch his and only his interceptions and nothing else? Still first in the NFL in EPA per play, but sure let's bench him...

    I'm talking the past two games? Yes, I watched the past two games where they got shit on and he played like garbage.... which is why I said the medical staff should pull him. Listening to Stephania Bell, she also thinks there is something medically bothering him. Did YOU watch Monday nights game? He looked like shit.

    Titans
    19-27
    143 Yards
    1 TD 1 INT

    49ers
    26-41
    243 yards
    1 TD 2 INT

    You are literally posting the wrong stats...

    He was 31-48 vs Titans.
    294
    1 TD 2 INT

    As far the the 49ers game, he had one "punt" INT and the other higbee literally caught it then tossed it to the DB. He halso had 3 different recievers drop first downs that hit them in the chest.

    He hasn't played great the past 2 games, but compared to other QBs they aren't even the worst games of the year. Even just comparing these last 2 games to the top tier of QBs this year they aren't bottom 5 games of those players. He hasn't looked hurt IMO, and his play mostly backs that up.

    My mistake on that first part.

    Either way, I will take the opinions of multiple medical experts, and you know, that MASSIVE downward trend in his play versus a mediocre Titans defense and a bottom of the barrel 49ers who were previously 0-4 at home. The Rams were 4-0 away before Monday night.

    And for the record, I like Stafford, you can probably look through this thread and see posts where I am saying he is great. My original point is that I think he is playing hurt and needs to just heal. He is known for doing that.

    It may be possible he is playing through injuries, but I havent heard about it so I just assume he had a couple of bad games. Hell 49ers are 5-0 last 5 games vs Rams even though Rams have had a good record during that time. But 2 bad games in a row don't even mean that much. Is Brady injured now? Was Mahomes injured during a few games earlier? Herbert?

    I've watched both of these last 2 games, and it just looks like a hyper efficient offense hit the wrong side of variance and they had some a few key bad throws/drops each game. Plus both games had the turnovers occur early which led to them being down fairly big early, which always causes offenses to look and play differently.

    I totally forgot Hard Knocks was happening in season this year. Any Colts fans gonna watch?

    Did it air? Was a big fan of all or nothing because it was in season. Hard Knocks this preseason was incredibly boring.

    The only time I watched was when it was the Rams first year back in LA.

    And this pivotal piece of our OL was put on the COVID list today. If he's unvaccinated (which would not surprise me, if you look at his Twitter/IG takes), he'd not only miss Sunday vs. the Colts, but Thanksgiving, a week from today, at the Saints.

    Horrific. Our OLine has been so bad without him - so bad that we lost to the Jags and couldn't score a TD against them.

    Thanks, I will check it out after the game.

    Patriots look like they are getting hot at the right time.

    Boring Thursday Night game.

    Is Atlanta really that bad? There defense played well, but honestly, it never looked like the Patriots struggled.

    I am a Patriots fan, but I am not on the Jones Hype train right now. They are better than I expected, but they still haven't played the Bills. And they have the Titans and Bills the next two weeks.

    I scream when Van Noy went for the TD, but the end with a freak pick anyway.

    I wonder how often it has happened that a team plays 3 QBs in 1 game and all three throw an INT. Must be rare, right?

    Last time it happened was 21 years ago.

    Chargers had it happen on November 12th, 2000.

    Would’ve bet money the browns or bills had it happens sometime during that span. Especially that peterman year.

    People forget that Tyrod never threw interceptions. He had the lowest INT rate in the league regularly. They sat him because he was a checkdown manager and our team wasn't good enough to make that work.

    For some reason I didn't realize Anthony Lynn was the Lion's OC. Explains a lot.

    That sounds familiar except for the sitting that player part.

    Interesting, thanks for finding that fact somewhere.

    Funny thing, I googled that game, and one of the QBs that played for the Chargers that day and threw an INT was... Jim Harbaugh, now coach for the Michigan Wolverines. Can't escape the guy!
