    The only good thing to come of this Watson massage debacle is that Taylor has a starting QB job again. He lost his last job in such a ridiculous way I'm happy to see him get another chance.

    Mixed reality in Panthers opening. Pretty dope. (I'm partial to cats though)

    Officiating in the Chargers/FOOTBALLTEAM game has been pretty gruesome. Also Fitz's OLine let him get steamrolled and he has a hip injury. Mostly an ugly game aside from Herbert throwing darts.

    Buffalo are suddenly collapsing in this 4th quarter.

    Eagles knew how to take a gift -- they did a good job, but the Falcons handed them plenty of fouls to capitalize.

    Good job Eagles, you showed potential. Can't wait to watch the rest of the season to see how you fuck it up.

    Chargers game got a lot better at the end, Lombardi & Herbert is going to be a good combination of OC and QB. I'm not saying Herbert is Drew Brees but the way the offense ran on the final drive looked very familiar. Also familiar was a gutless decision by Ron Rivera to punt while trailing and then lose the game never having gotten possession again.

    I blinked and the Niners went from being up 21 to being up 8 with the Lions having the ball and 43 seconds left.

    That ejection in the browns game is the dumbest fucking thing I’ve seen this season. Makes me now want to watch the rest. Should’ve ejected the coach if anything.

    Denver's defense in mid-season form giving up free first downs on dumb penalties and allowing 3rd down conversions. Going to be funny seeing them start 0-3 again against 3 very bad teams.

    The way Winston is scrambling, Hill never had a chance. Packers D is getting gashed by every ball carrier.

    Jerry Jeudy's ankle just went a direction it isn't supposed to, it was nice to see all the receivers not hurt for half a game.

    So Denver's offense can't convert 3rd downs, but are 3 for 3 on 4th down. Shows how little trust they had in Lock last year when they never went for it on 4th and now do it 3 times in the first game with Bridgewater.

    Saints usually don't do well on opening games but damn they are on fire today.

    Green Bay got robbed on that call though. That was not roughing the passer. Should have been Packers ball.

    8 penalties for nearly a 100 yards. Lost the turnover battle, turning it over when they were primed to score the go ahead touchdown, after an impressive drive by Mac & co. till that point.

    If anything the rest of the team let Mac Jones down, cause he was on point for most of it and doing far more than I think the Patriots had wanted him to do coming into the game.

    Shit sucks, but losing to Miami in the opener is nothing new, so, regroup, get the mental errors fixed, and let's kick some Jets ass next week.

    I am now aware of the absolute shellacking that New Orleans put on Green Bay.

    I don't know why I get so emotionally invested in this sports team. If there was a high building in Buffalo I'd be at the top of it. I'll have to watch the TV version of the game, but we did *not* look good in any phase of offense, and our usually solid ST gave up a blocked punt TD which was the difference in a game.

    I guess it's reassuring that one of the best defenses in the league had to play lights out, force a fumble, block a punt for a TD to win? We held Ben to under 200 yards and I think they rushed for less than 50, but holy shit we just couldn't do anything on offense (and still scored 16 points).

    Honestly, the AFC East as a whole looks like it needs to improve.

    And Mac wasn't perfect, a mental error on his part on the first drive cost ended up costing them points.

    Very curious to see how Stafford does now that he actually has talent around him and a real coach.
