Ready for my packers to get back to the playoffs,  hopefully, a healthy Rodgers for a full season will do

America’s team my old, hairy, white ass!    😁

Go Pack go! You fantasy guys may want your own separate thread.  Never understood the attraction of rooting for a bunch of individual players who aren’t on the same team, but to each his own.

Bobby Layne curse.  It's real.   A coach calls a timeout and the first down they would have had was negated.   That first down would have cemented the win.   It doesn't matter who is coaching or playing, the Lions are just terrible.

The Bobby Layne curse was supposed to expire after 50 years.  Cans of Spam don't last this long.

Well...there's Spam, egg, sausage and Spam.  That's not got much Spam in it.

Well the Giants had a great start to their season.

Three and out on defense followed by a touchdown on the offensive drive. Good stuff.

Yeah! How ‘bout those Cowboys! Lol. 😃

Well, my gambit with the quarterbacks really backfired. Felt good about it after the Bears held Rodgers to 12.9 points on Thursday. Then Winston goes out and throws 3 picks and scores a miserable 7.1. Worse than that, WR1 was Mike Evans and he's apparently still too banged up to get more than 2 receptions on 5 targets.

Then there was that absolute catastrophe of a performance by Jacksonville's D. Yeah, I know that was the Chiefs, but that was not a professional display. Going to need to consider alternatives.

Only my RBs keep me from losing this week.

It isn't often that the Lions (my home town side) make it this far into the season undefeated.

Funny, I was thinking of saying that about the Cardinals (minus the part about hometown).

Did anybody see the end of the Houston vs. New Orleans game?  OMG.  3 lead changes within about 90 seconds!  the game included a missed extra point that wasn't and a personal best distance field goal.   It was exciting!

Yep. Pretty crazy.

Funny how often Deshaun Watson and the Texans seem to end up on the wrong side of these. Lots of real tight games for those guys over last few years only to go sideways at the last second. Speaking of Watson, he's still getting hammered back there. Texans were supposed to have an improved OL.

Brees and that Lutz guy pretty much killed my brother. Just as well. Let him go to bed before that Jacobs guy scored two against the Broncos to make his Week One a no doubter.

My goodness. I shudder to think how close was I to drafting that mental patient Antonio Brown.

So after all that, a rape allegation.

Have fun New England.

Just now, iacas said:

But… this is also just a civil lawsuit. Not a criminal one.

Yes. However, the NFL has its own highly unpredictable methods of investigating and punishing misconduct regardless of a criminal charge.

 Take Ezekiel Elliot for instance.

Huge night for a bloody Thursday night game (which they should do away with for many reasons).

RB1 - McCafferey, WR1 - Evans.

On pins and needles for TB to show some life after that awful game against SF last week.

This has to be a 35 point game for me.

Not good. 17.4. It is all sort of a bad blur right now.

Stunned that Carolina couldn't do more than that with McCafferey. From 42 points in Week One to 7.3 last night against Tampa Bay. I guess you got to give Boles and the Bucs D a lot of credit for forcing Cam to throw down field. Really didn't see that coming.

It's also becoming pretty clear that Godwin is TB's top receiver, not Evans. 

Thought I might have an easy week against the weakest lineup in the league, but I'm in a heck of a hole now.

    • I don’t think they are following the science there. We have to rely on that. I voted yes. 
    • There are a number of places in the article that references government requirements.  I took a quick look through Google, and see that the UK does still have significant restrictions on travelers, including proof of vaccination, testing, and quarantine in some situations.  Those restrictions are going to apply to anyone visiting the country for the tournament.  They are facing a surge in new cases, apparently associated with the Delta variant.  Given all that, its hard to blame the R&A if they're following current government guidelines and restrictions.  And I honestly don't know whether the government policies are excessively restrictive, given the surge this spring from the Alpha variant, and the current surge from Delta.  I'm just barely on the side saying the restrictions aren't too far, given the current situation in the UK.
    • Some examples: “I’m going to go because it’s the British Open. But I certainly thought about not going. I just can’t believe with the numerous examples of successfully run safely held tournaments and majors here that they can’t figure out a better situation,” the player said. “If someone on your plane tests positive on way to the British and is sitting anywhere close to you, you’re out no questions asked, no matter if you’re vaccinated. It’s aggravating that they deem the tournament safe enough for 32,000 fans a day to attend, but won’t let a player’s wife, children travel and watch the tournament, nor will they even let players visit a restaurant without threat of disqualification.” and According to the note sent by the R&A to players, caddies and coaches, those on different player teams will not be allowed to stay together, which makes things difficult for many who travel in support of players. “The up-to-four persons [regulation] within private rental accommodation must be included within the players’ own support group … For example, multiple players or multiple caddies are not permitted to share private self accommodation,” the R&A email read. “We recognise this is difficult for many that used to share during the championship but the Government’s strict contact tracing requirements mean that this will not be possible in 2021. and The potential for being ousted from the tournament has players angry, especially in light of the eased restrictions for patrons. The R&A recently announced that up to 32,000 fans will be able to attend each day at Royal St George’s — that’s 80 percent of the typical 40,000 spectators allowed on the site. “They care more about the revenue of the fans buying beers than they do about the actual people participating in the tournament,” said the player who spoke with Golfweek. “Any fan can go to a grocery store or a restaurant and we can’t. Does that make sense? And I’m vaccinated. How does that make sense?” So, I voted "yes."
    • Players angry, consider skipping Open Championship after R&A hands down strict COVID regulations Some are considering a boycott of the prestigious event and others are simply miffed by the regulations. What do you think about the COVID Protocols at the 2021 Open Championship?   I'll get things started.  I voted "YES" they are going too far.  What is the point of telling players, coaches & caddies that have been living in close proximity for months and most have been vaccinated they cannot share accommodations?  And at the same time allowing @ 80% capacity for fans?  Do testing, etc. similar to the PGA Tour, it seems to have prevented any massive outbreaks for quite some time.  They also claim requirements are for Contact Tracing, if you know who is in the house, RV, etc. Contact Tracing should not be that hard.  By making them separate they may actually increase the number of people they come in contact with.
