    Carrying his o-line on his shoulders explains why he gets sacked holding the ball too long.

    Almost season time bay-bee.

    I'm salivating at what the Bengals can be this year. Most sacked QB lead the league but still managed to lead in NFL in completion percentage and put-up A tier TDs.

    Mixon was hit in the backfield in 50 percent of his snaps and still ranked top 5 among RBS in yards and Touchdowns.

    Only one offensive line starter is coming back from last year, Jonah Williams. Ted Karras, our FA from New England, has become a team captain. Cappa and Collins are fucking Beasts. The only question mark is Cordell Volson.

    It may not be a top-10 line, but it's hard to beleive that it won't be better.

    Apart from Defensive tackle, there aren't a lot of question marks on the defense. If they can get turnovers in the regular season like they did the playoffs, they'll be top 5.


    AFC Champs? Probably not, at least statistically speaking. But that says more about the AFC (Cheifs, Bills, Chargers, Raiders, etc) than it does about Cincy. AFC isn't as stacked as people think (Colts, Steelers, Browns, and Dolphins are overhyped). But it's still the most stacked it has ever been.

    Side Note: I've noticed animosity has been growing between Bengals fans and Ravens fans, players. and coaches the last two years. It'll probably boil and escalate further this year. Fun storyline to watch.

    First game of the season! FINALLY some actual FOOTBALL (though Crissi forces me to say that college football is football too).

    And with it all the good things return, silly predictions, useless pomp and cringey commercials as well as a chance to see the Bills fail in prime time when they are the no. 1 favorite to win the Super Bowl this season.

    Let's fucking GO!

    Rams took that cookie away. Great play, and probably the only thing stopping Josh Allen right now: mistakes by his fellow players.

    Hate to break it to you, but this offense looks lit. Bills are the most complete team in the league. When the fuck did they sign Jamison Crowder?

    Allen is going to drag his nuts across the AFC East this year.

    Hey it is a turnover caused by McKenzie, I remember those.

    I also didn't know Justin Hollins was starting for the Rams, nice it worked out for him.

    I mean he should be. He's the no. 1 favorite to win MVP headlining the no. 1 favorite to win the Superbowl. The more shocking thing would be if he failed.

    That would be the more fun thing for me to watch though.

    Good half. Should be fun 2nd half too. God I'm glad to have football again. This is great.

    Guys getting tired and suddenly injuries starting to pop up as well. Going to guess the 2 are related.

    It's been killing me, waiting the last few weeks since my last fantasy draft and nothing to do but pay attention to the minutia of pre-season.

    I'm also very happy that my most expensive fantasy team has Josh Allen as the QB. Gives me a reason to cheer for the Bills tonight

    Rams offense has been putrid, credit to the Bills defense for that.

    Not sure if the Bills are just The Inevitable this year or if Stafford managed to win a ring in his last good year.

    I only ever hear Jalen ramsey mentioned two ways

    1) how he's the best, and when he gets beat but tackles the guy, they talk about how the wr did it against the best
    2) when he gets smoked for a deep td (usually when it matters most)

    Ive never seen less production from someone talked about so superlatively

    Part of it is probably the Rams didn't play starters in any preseason game and the Bills did.

    Eh, seems like most good CBs get this treatment. If they are doing their job they aren't mentioned.

    Four turnovers, and you still win with 31 points. Shit's scary.

    Random thought I had during half time, that didn;t come true: I expected first game of the season + really hot night in LA to lead to cramping down the stretch on both teams. But I don;t think anyone did.

    Might have been due to the Bills putting this away in the 3rd already, but Rams were TRYING so I would have expected to at least see something, but nope.

    Going to guess conditioning for both these teams is on point.

    The commentators were mentioning how Kupp does not have OBJ or Woods to take the pressure off, meaning that defenders can focus on him more. But I thought that was supposed to be the point of having Robinson, yet they only targeted AR3 twice in the game. It was nearly all Kupp and Higbee and if you're only going to throw to two guys then it becomes easier to cover them.

    Missed the game due to being out in the woods looking for delicious elk. I actually get ok cell reception at camp. Yay for the Bills!

    Being that I didn't see the actual game, what were the circumstances of the ints Allen threw?

    This is my take away too. Against the Super Bowl champs, no less.

    We blitzed 0 times, and had 7 sacks. And it's not like the Rams were in empty sets all night, they ran 11 personnel 100% of the time. We feasted. They're definitely missing Whitworth.

    My favorite stat? Ramsey gave up a perfect passer rating of 158.3, 131 yards and 2 TDs, to 4 different WRs total on the Bills.

    Clean up the turnovers and let's fucking run through some walls.

    One wasn't his fault, McKenzie bobbled it and practically handed it to the CB. The other was a bad throw slightly behind the WR that the CB made a good play on.
