    I only started watching after half time..... I can't believe Chicago let Rodgers have such an easy last qtr on one leg...

    why didn't they blitz him a few times and put him out of the game?.....

    hands off the brother, he's injured....:rolleyes:

    I'm betting Rodgers is injured more than he's letting on. He doesn't want to sign the biggest contract in NFL history and then not play.

    I wish Rodgers would play like a conventional QB and the Packers would run conventional offensive more often. Moving through progressions quickly and decisively. Taking what the defense gives and releasing the ball quickly. He’s so good at that and would take less hits. And the offense wouldn’t bog down so often.

    The Bears had a monster first half....and then they turned back into the Bears.

    Leave it to the Browns to end a 17-game losing streak... with a tie. :lol:

    That said, I do think this Browns team will be a decent unit--certainly better than what they've been the last few years.

    My Saints looked exceptionally Saint-like yesterday. Gave up 400 yards and 4 TDs to a backup. Jameis Winston's backup.

    Niiiiiice. :eek:

    Winston has been less than stellar in his career so far. I don't expect the Bucs to put up 48 every week but if Fitz continues to play well it'll be interesting to see what they do when JW comes back from suspension.

    That's what Pittsburgh ended up doing with Roethlisberger 3-5 years ago: get him to shift his playing style from a scrambling, backyard football QB to getting the ball out quicker and staying healthy. Too many broken bones, shoulder injuries, head injuries, etc. I guess lots of other teams have had to make that kind of QB adjustment in the past too - a wise business decision and football decision for teams with expensive starters like Rodgers. Helps out the O-line too.

    That being said, I do like to see a QB who can hustle and extend the play behind the line, pump fake and make a miracle happen. I remember watching McNabb scramble with the ball for like almost 14 seconds one time on 3rd and something, juking back and forth, looking downfield. It was amazing. I don't even remember if they converted it!

    I agree. But somehow Rodgers and the Pack go from using his extreme skills to maximize a sound offense, to building an offense around those skills, at the expense of sound offensive principles (and his health) IMO. Simply put, I think he is he best in in football at reading progressions, making the quick, right decision and making the accurate, hard throw. That gives the Pack a HUGE advantage. And then when plays do break down, his ability to scramble is an added bonus. But treating every play like it has broken down before it starts is counter-productive, iMO.

    Von Miller is unreal. That Mack guy in Chicago was (is!) amazing for coming to a new team with little to no practice and do what he did. My team Seahawks get to travel to the windy city for Sundays game against a mad,mad team. Go Hawks!

    Man! Anyone watch Ravens@Bengals last night? Cincinnati totally OWNED the first half! Well, the first quarter anyway. Watching AJ Green get 3 TD catches in a row felt like witnessing history (despite it probably not being historically superlative.)

    I was rooting for the Bengals at first, but found myself rooting for Flacco in the second half. "Get it together man! You've got the arm - just don't make any dumb throws into coverage!"
