    I agree, iron out the field maintenance before the WC. Last year after the sounders stopped playing the field looked really bad in Seattle. Washed out and almost gray looking.

    This looks like a really dumb challenge.

    A good portion of the stadiums are probably not switching to permanent grass(unless the NFL requires it). They can just bring in temp grass like they do when clubs play in the states. This grass would suck really bad for american football and be a worse slip and slide than the super bowl was.

    Like I know some are converting, but places like Atlanta I dunno how you even get permanent grass there. It was not built for it like Arizona/Vegas. A lot of indoor stadiums are in similar situations. You also have stadiums like cinci that is below the water table and next to the Ohio River so the grass would need a massive engineering feat to work there.

    In an ideal world they could all switch, but seems unlikely. Not sure what Metlifes excuse is for their shitty turf though, grass should work fine there?

    Not sure why Watson is allowed to keep putting his hands on people he shouldn't. Guess the refs figured the Browns are worse off with him playing QB so they didn't eject him.
    Great comment, and he did it again.

    At least he's only using his hands?

    Using his hands for everything other than holding onto the football.

    Watson gotta be the worst redline passer I've seen all season so far.

    So who regrets trading for a washed QB more? Cleveland or Denver?

    Denver has their regrets spread around since they also hired a coach so bad they had to trade for another.

    The coach they traded for has been kind of a joke so far too. I guess a bad quality product should be a given when you are owned by Walmart though.

    Starting 0-2 is his trademark. We are 2-0 for the first time in ten years, slow starts are a Sean Payton specialty, he did it four years straight in New Orleans.

    Da Bears are going to turn it around this Sunday against Mahomes and the Chiefs, I say Bears 31 Chiefs 28.

    Then I woke up LOL. Ugh

    I was a big Justin Fields supporter, really hoping he was going to be "it" but now I'm not thinking so. But, in his defense the play calling has been horrendous, the offensive line still not that good, so it's hard to tell if it's ll Fields being terrible, or a combination of Fields, bad coaching and bad O line?

    Someone highlighted a play where Fields overlooked several open (and visibly frustrated) receivers to instead dash into a pile of linemen and be sacked.

    https://twitter.com/PaulHembo/status...77394740589051 Not a perfect stat--a lot of reasons he may get sacked after 4+ seconds (he's running for his life). But for what it's worth--the last I saw someone post PFF rankings (for what they're worth): the Bears line is really not bad. It isn't amazing, but it's not a mess/bottom tier unit and I don't think they're to blame. But there's some chicken or the egg with this one.

    Playcalling looks pretty suspect and not doing him any favors. But the eye test looks like Fields is just flat out bad. He had so many plays where he demonstrates awful pocket awareness. Maybe I'm a hater--but he isn't it.

    The game looks a lot tougher on him/he's getting a reality check without having Olave and Wilson creating 5+ yards of separation and torching the shit out of everyone.

    Fields held onto the ball forever and took a long time to decide to throw when he say his receivers very open in college too. It just doesn't work in the NFL because his team doesn't have a huge talent advantage and the game is faster.

    This is why I would never trust an OSU QB to draft as long as Brian Hartline in there. They have had 3-5 1st round WRs on their roster since 2018 onward, against college DBs. Hell Jameson Williams transferred away from OSU so he could get on the field, this is how stacked they are. You would have to be a beyond terrible QB to not light it up.

    Olave and Wilson already have 1000 yard seasons and they've both made spectacular catches this year. Plus they did most of that with Dalton and Wilson as their QBs, so that is a lot of talent elevating Fields at Ohio State.

    Something shady about the Bears DC seems to be going down. Not going to talk about it until it's official but the rumors out there are wild.

    He resigned today and the media not saying much other than being very vague probably leans toward the rumors having at least some truth to them.
