    If the Texans didn't exist the Seahawks might have had a shot at having the #1 pick and winning their division in the same year.

    This is what the rest of the league looks like?

    SF is the best defense in the league?

    Couldn't be me.

    Sometimes things don't make sense. I swear to god if nobody told me and some videoshopping had been arranged, would not have known the difference between Wilson and Rypien under the center. Panthers were expected to be a non-recoverable garbage fire, but Broncos on the other hand. Weren't they supposed to be going somewhere other than the top pick finals?

    There was a difference between Wilson and Rypien. One of them knows how to get rid of the ball quick and make protection adjustments to help against the pass rush and it isn't the one being paid a ton of money.

    The only people expecting the Broncos to be any good thought Hackett did anything and GB and ignored what he did in Buffalo and Jacksonville. They also went the cheap route on a bad punter and it has been a big problem, especially when he keeps screwing up holds and causing missed FGs. I thought they would be fighting the Raiders for last place in the division, but didn't think the offense would be quite this bad. The defense is really good though.

    Matt Ryan has a Grade 2 shoulder separation, so it;s Sam Ehlinger in Indy next game. Year of the Back Up.

    Booooo Matt Ryan was gonna break the fumble record. Now there's no reason to watch the NFL in 2022.

    I mean, you could watch the long suffering Buffalo Bills reign supreme all season and finally get the monkey off their back and defeat the Kansas City Chiefs in the playoffs to make it to the Superbowl and then make HISTORY by losing in the Superbowl again to the Eagles making them the first team to lose a Superbowl to EVERY NFC East team.

    I got 5 bucks that says the Bills and Eagles don't make the superbowl. That's too obvious a pick.

    Looking like the Falcons made the right move after all.

    Man, I hate that xskarma went to bed instead of watching this MNF, cause he assured me that there was no QB controversy and everyone knew Mac was the starter going forward.

    Also, I wouldn't put it past Bill to tank Mac''s first two drives with shitty playcalling (and a few drops from Pats WRs didn't help either) only to put Zappe in and scheme up a backside leak that leads to Jacoby Myers wide open, a pass Zappe almost missed and Myers had to come up huge for his new QB1.

    The long 15 year Jouneyman QB road for Mac Jones....begins now.

    Its very important to split snaps between the QB with a rating of 16 and the QB with a rating over 150.

    The Bears actually look competent tonight.

    Yeah, I woke up, watched the game without spoilers and when we got to the point Zappe came in and the crowd was cheering like fucking deafening idiots, I knew the game would be a shit show, if nto right there then in the aftermath.

    But, this was more than just an offensive shit show and bad communication by Belichick, this was a shitshow on the defense and special teams too.

    Special teams let up great field position for the Bears numerous times and failed to run the ball out of the endzone and get anywhere to get the Patriots good position.

    And the defense, holy shit. I was already done with how they were defending Justin Fields afetr the 1st quarter and they just kept on giving him prime opportunities to escape the pocket and roam, with ample time to decide to run or to throw.


    So as much as this was bad on offense, this was probably worse on defense, especially when you consider that we have 2 games against Josh Allen coming, who does what Fields does at an elite level.

    And now we have a full blown QB controversy on top of it.

    Given how poorly Zappe played there won't be much of a controversy. I'm assuming they pulled Mac so early because he isn't actually 100% yet.

    Yeah that seems to be the case.

    Rumor has it BB didn't want to play Mac, but Mac begged to play and they settled on the compromise of playing part of the game.

    The fact that part of the game ended with a Mac INT and the game getting away from them just made things look super bad.


    So funnily enough this whole situation might be not cause BB hates Mac, but because he likes him too much and wanted to do him a solid.

    Mac probably not happy with how the crowd reacted to Zappe coming in though. Foxborough crowd definitely did NOT have his back.
