Today might well be Cam Newton's last shot at keeping his job as starter for the Pats.

 

A win up in Buffalo is a tough proposition at best and should he turn in a sub par performance

it might be time to test Stidham at QB.

 

The Patriots' season is going down the tubes and they'll pretty much be in a nothing to lose situation after 

a loss today.

Today is Tua-day! Tua's first start for the Dolphins. I'm about as excited as I've ever been as a Miami fan since Marino retired. Just hope he doesn't get injured...

 

Tough games to start with against the Rams D, but just hope he shows some of his college form for the rest of the season and give us long-suffering Miami fans some hope for the future.

And that's with the offence only showing up for a half. 

More than happy with the record but they could make it easier on themselves. (And me ;) )

My god, The Eagles and the Cowboys are rotten. Washington should stroll this division from here on in.

Watched my first ever NFL game last night! Had Red Zone on for the 5pm games, and enjoyed it, but felt like it was difficult to really keep up with the narrative of a game so decided to just go all in and watch 49ers at Seahawks. Decent game, and while I'd be lying if I said I was totally fixated on it for the full 3 hours or whatever it was, I did keep up with it and enjoy it.

 

Naturally, I'm trying to find a team to back. Coincidentally, I was actually thinking about the Seahawks before I watched that game, so it was good to watch them. For some reason too, the Detroit Lions are calling me. :lol:

Weird win as an Eagles fan last night! Great to beat Dallas as always but that was torturous for most of the game. Very little to get excited about when it comes to Philly just now!

RedZone is a great way to watch, cutting between several games whenever anything noteworthy happens.

 

Trying to sit through a single NFL game only antagonises me.

Think that's what drew me to them. :lol:

 

Spoke to my work mate who likes NFL and told him that I watched it last night. Now we've decided to watch the Giants (his team) tonight and Zoom call each other at the same time. It startes at 1.15am and I'm working in the morning. :ninja:

You’ll be lucky if you both hold out until the end of that one. The Giants have been truly awful lately. The Bucs should get out the gate quickly and build a nice lead. The rest of the game will be the Bucs defense terrorising Daniel Jones, who I feel really sorry for. I think he’s a decent QB, but he walked in to a mess as a rookie and it’s not got any better this season. The Giants really need a good run at the upcoming draft.

Man you're in for a world of hurt if you go with the Lions, get put through the wringer on a weekly basis...but no one can ever accuse you of being a glory hunter!

I'm hoping the banter between us both is enough to carry me through. :lol: Haven't watched Tom Brady in action yet either so I feel like I should before it's possibly too late.

I like an underdog. I was just drawn by the fact that they've been in the NFL for almost 100 years and won **** all. :lol:

That game was decent last night. A hard thought win for Tampa in the end. Late drama as Giants scored a touchdown in the final seconds to make it 25-23, and went for the 2 point play. Bucs player got a touch on it to block but there was a fairly lengthy review to see if it was a foul (it wasn't). Part of me would've loved to see the Giants comeback, but it was well after 4 and I couldn't be arsed with OT. :lol: 

 

@luckyBatistuta I see what you mean with Daniel Jones. Tampa pressed him hard all night, and put him under a lot of pressure which led to a fair few interceptions. Boy definitely has some talent though.

 

@ri Alban I thought about Washington with the obvious colour connection, but the name puts me off for now. :lol: Are there intentions of coming up with something again, or are they content with 'Football Team'? I remember the whole Redskins fiasco but wasn't sure if they were looking to rebrand again.

Glad you enjoyed it. It didn’t quite play out like I thought it would. I think Daniel Jones is a great prospect, but they’re ruining him imo. I just hope they can get more protection and weapons around him through trades and the draft.

It’s not looking like it’s happening any time soon for the Lions. They do have some cracking young pieces going forward in Okudah,Hockenson,Swift though. Golladay is one of the top WR, but hasn’t had a great start to this season, being hampered with injuries. There have been rumours about trades for him (Giants have been in the phone) but would you be happy with that?

We're a ****ing mess mate. It's actually scarily similar to Hearts the last couple of seasons, you look at the players we have and wonder where the **** it's going wrong.

 

Buck stops with the coaching staff, Patricia has to go, along with every other assistant. Total clear out.

 

I feel so sorry for Stafford, what a ****ing wasted career.

 

Re Golladay, he's literally the only WR we have. Although for all we are bad, he'd be off his rocker to want to go to the Giants :lol:

As you say, you shouldn’t be as bad as you are, yet the Bears are above you with a 5-3 record🤪 I also have to agree regarding  Patricia, it’s not working. A trade involving  Golladay and the Giants, that’s when you find out who cares about money more. The Giants are truly awful, such a mess.

The Bears are lucky they have an elite D because their offense is easily in the bottom 5. 

 

I wanted Vrabel when we were hiring. Look at the turnaround there.

Yeah, he’s doing well. There offence is brutal, can’t bring myself to watch the Bears games, it’s so boring. I think the Lions should go all in on Swift instead of pissing around with the committee approach with Peterson and Johnson. It’s too muddled for me and he can handle the load if they trust in him.

Why didn't  they put the Steelers and Eagles in the same division. Seems a bit strange.

Will only happen if the league is expanded imho, when the 10 team AFL and 16 team NFL merged in 1970 and the created the AFC and NFC they needed to balance the 26 teams so 3 NFL teams moved to the AFC and those were the Steelers, Browns and Baltimore Colts. The AFC teams quickly agreed on their divisions but the 13 NFC teams struggled to get agreement with teams looking to avoid being in the same division as the strongest teams Vikings or Cowboys while attempting to get the weakest team the Saints. The NFC ended up with 5 proposed splits of the three divisions that went into a bowl and option 3 got picked which resulted in

 

NFC East: NYG, PHI, WAS, DAL, STL

NFC Central: CHI, GB, DET, MIN;

NFC West: LA, SF, ATL, NO.

Feck Washington! 

That was tragic. Almost looked like they were trying to lose. So many turnovers from self inflicted mistakes. Throw the ball to the receiver, and not 10 yards short or long.

One minute I think, yes! we're on our way back. Then we lose to the pitiful Giants. All we need now is to lose to the second worst team with New York in its name.   :facepalm:

 

 

Just checked, TF we don't play the Jets. :D

Even if we played Jets, could you feel confident about winning? Given up looking at schedule and wait to see who we are against. Now watch Red Zone hoping that Washington at least get mention because they never seem to feature much. Written off season already.
