    I mean he is still the best QB Denver has had since Manning.

    Going to ignore how low of a bar that is though.

    Patriots doing us a solid there, never thought I'd cheer them on.

    Patriots win an ugly game. In a game where they failed to make plays on offense, the Chargers kindly chargered on offense harder and gave the game away with a pick-6.

    Finally a win this weekend for 1 of my teams.

    and Brady throws an pick six at the end of the game when they needed to score. about a minute elft but still...

    The Pats could be 7-1 right now if things went a little different at the end of games. Wouldn't be surprised if they end up doing well in the playoffs.

    I know Brady is old, but does he know he was supposed to throw a TD to his team and not the Saints?

    Well done by Trevor "Monkey Man" Siemian, who I didn't realize was still in the league.

    Not what I expected to happen when Jameis went down. I do wonder if they just turn to Taysom as the starter if Winston is done for a while. Saints can be in first next week if they beat ATL. Crazy.

    You could even argue that they beat themselves more than were beat by the Saints to be 8-0. The Patriots are better than the record suggests, but I don't seem them getting anything more than the wildcard.

    Brady is back to his last season with the Patriots play I guess. There were a few games were he threw a pick sick late.

    On Rookies: I feel bad for first year Rookies that have to play their first year all of a sudden due top injuries or the like. This clearly can work on for some QBs, but many others I feel like its a failure on the part of the team/coaches. Most of the rookie QBs this year aren't doing very well, and in some cases its just caused drama.

    On Kickoffs: they add very little, and most of the time its a touchback. Very rarely does anything exciting happen. Yet another player was hurt this week on a kick return. Replace it with punting if anything, it takes more skill and people aren't running quite as fast.

    I'm sure these will be unpopular opinions, go ahead and roast me lol

    If that's roughing the passer, you can't hit a QB anymore.

    Shoulder at midriff height, rolls to the side as not to land on him, perfect tackle.

    College ball is so different from the NFL that these rookie QBs really benefit from having a red shirt year in the NFL at this point. Plus its really hard for QBs to have instant success given that most of these teams with early picks have more holes than QB.

    Kickoffs, they have been grooming us for a while on that. Calling tacky block in the back and holdings on any eventful return. Its so they can go to the owners and be like, "haaay, kickoffs are pointless, lets get rid of them"

    The amount of penalties called now days makes the game really hard to watch. I've been very uninterested in the NFL outside of the Seahawks this year due to the constant laundry. Plus I am finding hockey much more enjoyable to watch.

    But he passed it a second before contact! The way they call some of this shit is baffling.

    Hockey is my preferred sport these days too. I have ESPN+ as well, so I get every game.

    If you go back and watch a game from like the 80s, it's fascinating. No replays, calls just stand, no interminable arguing from announcers etc.

    I subbed because the first Kraken home game was only on ESPN+. Been using it quite often to throw on a hockey game since.

    Ironically, I was sick a month ago and threw on NFL network. It had a special on the early 80s Raiders. Its a different game compared to now. I've always hated how they slowed down old clips in highlights to make the current game look faster. But those guys were flying and just mauling people. Plus Al Davis was on the sidelines. Only owner you see doing that now days is the Falcons owner.
