I'll reserve judgment until he gets a season or two under his belt. The Jets and their fanbase have a tendency to overhype QBs. Remember when Mark Sanchez was the next Joe Namath?

Butt Fumble!

It's hard to remember that at a point early in the second half of that Jets-Lions game, it was tied 17-17. The remainder of that 3rd quarter had to be one of the worst 12 minutes of football I've seen an NFL team have in a long time.

Seriously, when was the last time you saw a team give up 31 points in one stinking quarter?

It's the Lions.   People that follow them don't expect much different.

They have four NFL titles since moving from Portsmouth.  It's just taking them longer than most teams to adjust to playing on television.  Could be the lights, could be the commercials, or it could be that cats simply don't fare well in professional football.

What team was that playing in prime time last night and scoring those touchdowns? Been a while since the Bengals played under the lights and looked competent.

Now if they could just manage to get out of the locker room after halftime.

Nice to see Drew Brees attain the NFL record for most passing yards.   I remember seeing him play at Purdue and thought back then he was very good.

I agree. He's a good guy and I'm happy for him. The Saints have such a smooth offense, whenever they score 40 points or more I'm never surprised. The challenge for them is going up against the top teams in the NFL, where they sometimes waver.

 

Big games to watch this weekend are Pitt v Cinci and Philly v NYG.

Steelers and Eagles SHOULD be having winning seasons but both have had a less than ideal start. Hoping for big wins for these 2 PA teams.

Yup. Though he is the best clapper in the NFL. He knows how to do that real well. 

I think he let what happened to the colts vs the Texans influence his decision to punt on Sunday. Played not to lose instead of trying to win.

I agree. Brees has had one hell of a career. Nice to see an old Big Ten guy do well.

The only shame about it is that, at this rate, some guy you never heard of before will break his records in about seven years after they outlaw all defense.

I believe they have 1 playoff win in my lifetime.

1991 if memory serves.  They clobbered the Cowboys, elevated hopes, then got trounced by the Redskins.  But that was only 27 years ago...less than a blip in geologic time.

Somewhat relieved to hear the MRI on Sony Michel showed no structural damage. His early exit was a major contributor to my first loss of the season.

I felt really clever about taking Sony where I did in the draft. People avoided him because he had an injury designation at that time and wasn't expected to play for a few weeks. When he did get back and have those back-to-back 100-yard games, I was feeling really good. 

It's probably too optimistic to think he'll be back for Buffalo on Monday, so my team will still be in a tough way next week. With another RB on a bye week, I need waiver help (and I'm 10th in order) or its Isiah Crowell in my RB2 position.

We get two excellent matchups in the conference championships this year. They've both played each other earlier in the season too, adding to the intrigue for me.  

Pats 43, Chiefs 40

Saints 45, Rams 35

Yea, that's a lot of scoring. Not much movement in Vegas either although people are feeling the under in Chiefs-Pats for some reason. I feel like the under is more likely in Saints-Rams.

I think though I'm gonna guess 34-31 Pats and 30-27 Saints and will laugh at myself on Sunday night when I'm wrong.

Anyway, regardless of betting, the games themselves are so interesting that even with no money on the line, these matchups are so fun on paper. Any Super Bowl matchup that we get from these four teams is really, really cool. 

Pats-Saints is Brady vs. Brees, which is amazing.

A rematch of KC-LAR would be 55-52 and also really fun if you don't mind seeing no defense. 

Rams Pats is really cool to see the young gun Goff go against the GOAT in TB12. 

And Chiefs Saints is cool too. 

Usually we get at least one defensive/run-based team, but this year it's four high octane offenses. The Saints are ranked 3rd in DVOA against the run, and the Rams have Donald and Suh, but these are four really fast tempo teams that should be really exciting to see.*

Anybody got some opinions on the games? It'll be fun to laugh at how wrong most of us are come Monday. 

*I guess the Pats are probably going to pound Sony Michel and hit James White on a lot of check downs to take advantage of KC's 32nd ranked run defense, but still. Brady can hit 400 yards passing any given day. I wonder if Gronk gets out of his funk in this spot too.

    • Riverpines Golf Club - 69.4/127 - Par 70 - Blue Tees So, I did the thing again... that thing where I break 90... and shot an 87 on a tight, heavily wooded course that I've only played a couple of times, and had not played in about two-and-a-half years.  It was also the first time in that same length of time since I putted on bentgrass greens, which I did pretty well. I managed to get around the course with only four double bogeys, and one of those was on a par five where I attempted to lay-up with a seven-iron, and discovered that it was too much club.  Otherwise, I hit a bunch of really good iron shots with everything in the bag, and I only really struggled with the driver.  I only hit six fairways, but I managed to make up for it with some really good approach shots that either got me on the green, or close to it.  I only hit three greens in regulation, but I was around greens in regulation - fringe, bunker, etc. - 11 times.  I didn't hit a single poor iron shot all day.  The only poor results were a result of not knowing my yardages, which I plan on dealing with.  I also was using my old AP-1s, which are not as forgiving or long as my G30s, but I was still hitting them a long way.  With their narrower sole, I was worried about hitting shots fat, but I hit them really crisply all day.  Putting was a bit of an issue, but most of the misses were due to pace on the bentgrass greens.  I had 33 putts, and only three putted twice.  Of course, those numbers are a bit skewed with putts, chips, and pitches from around the greens, but I hit several really good putts, both from distance, as well as from six to ten feet.  I made five clutch par putts, and only two of them were less than five feet.  Another positive that I took from this round is that I scored a stroke better on the back than I did on the front, and it was really hot and humid. Confidence is growing... and my handicap is shrinking... down from 22.5 to 21.7.  I feel like if I go back out to Pine Hills now, that I will shoot in the low 80s, or possibly even break 80.
    • Regarding stigma, I think those days are passing. Years ago when graphite iron shafts were beginning to surface you have to remember the technologies for producing graphite were not as roust as today. So you had numerous graphite shafts that had tip breakage, out of round (created a whole "spine your shaft business model" and inconsistent weighting from shaft to shaft. So none of the top players would commit to something so hit or miss. Plus the "feel" was nowhere near what generations of golfers were use to with steel shafts. In more recent times the graphite/carbon fiber technologies have exceeded steel capabilities in most areas. I volunteer for a senior Champions Tour event, I see as many irons with steelfibers as TT or KBS. So I think graphite is on par with steel irons shafts. I mean think about it, graphite took away steel shafts in woods, its only a matter of time regarding irons/wedges. I like having a choice with both as I am all about feel. But I think those in the know understand that graphite has its advantages when fit properly. 
    • Tee times at Whispering Woods are booked for: 9:40, 9:50, 10:00, 10:10. We may not need the last one, but just in case… I'll figure out a game to play or something, depending on everyone's mood once we get closer to the date(s). P.S. I'm still open to other options, but Rich gave me the reduced rate of $45 (cart included of course) for a weekend morning block of tee times, and we can play the blue or white tees. I'll endeavor to put experienced people with each group, too. 🙂
