    Rugby rocks and I quite like Australian Rules Footy too, but born and raised in the USA, High School football, College football, (go Huskies! Canadian Football and the NFL (go Hawks!) are what do it for me.

    That was cool :cool: Nice to see some passion erupt out of what are normally dispassionate, by-the-numbers sports reporters. Losing to the Browns by 3 scores will provoke that sort of response!

    I have to agree, they have a walk in the park for the first part of the season for the most part. We won't know how freaking good they really are until Brown (and Gordon likely) is suspended and they face a worthy team that has healthy players.

    I don't know, I'm gonna guess both Brown and Gordon get to play this year as long as they are healthy.

    Wow, looking at their schedule seems waaay to easy for the Superbowl Champs! Part of it is playing in a weak division of course (although maybe the Bills will make a game of it?), but it looks to me like they won't face a serious challenger until Week 9, the Ravens. Miami, Jets, Bills, Skins, Giants, Jets, Browns... I think any team would kill for that schedule this year.

    But what do I know? Any given Sunday of course! :D

    Well don't I have egg on my face! Pats cut AB after only 11 days on the team. Looks like he's trying to auction off the only Touchdown ball he ever caught while a Patriot.

    I read in an article that Brown had an aquarium he used to keep 50 piranhas in, and he liked dropping the goldfish in and watching them get torn apart. I am guessing he probably identifies more with the goldfish than the piranhas at this point.

    The Patriots are no worse for wear... looks like they get most of their money back, and they still have Edelman and Gordon, AND overachiever Phillip Dorsett.

    I think Gordon has more tact than Brown, and will avoid the same fate.

    I tried to watch tonight, I really did. Am curious about the Browns maybe being good for some reason. Tried to watch for the first time this season, but three penalties in the first six plays. No thanks.

    A holding call, illegal shift and the dumbest penalty in the rulebook: ineligible downfield. I mean, the lineman blocked his man, the defender slid off and the lineman stumbled forward a yard, apparently beyond the 5 yards or whatever. No thanks, take your targeting calls and instant replay to determine if a player was making a football move after the catch. Have fun, I'll be watching the last few episodes of Westworld.

    I really thought the Browns were gonna tie it up - looked like Mayfield almost could have run it in himself for a second.

    Steelers/49ers was a sloppy game with too many turnovers, but I liked watching backup QB Mason Rudolph. He had a few great throws, ran fearlessly headfirst when needed, and if not for a late James Conner fumble they might have pulled off a win. I consider that to be not too horrible given the circumstances.

    eagles needed that win...but it cost them a couple players...GB lost a couple guys too...what a battle

    one thing i thought was dumb to do...the interception on the last play...catch it in the end zone and take a knee...all i could imagine was a packer knocking the ball out and running it in and scoring...yikes

    This may have been covered, but...

    Tonight I watched the game on the Amazon Prime Video app. It was interesting to learn that there are multiple audio commentaries to select from. I went with the UK crew tonight. It was a refreshing change from Buck and Aikman.

    I know the Packers have to go with what works for them most of the time, but putting the ball in the air, not once, but twice at the five yard line just seems on the verge of being stupid. Either of the times they got down there on the line, they could have ran a ground play and probably been successful. When you put the ball in the air like that, you risk an interception, just like the one that occurred the second time around.

    Wentz and Eagles played a terrific game. Aaron Rodgers though, (despite the ending) threw some passes last night that were other worldly good. His touch, accuracy and arm strength amaze me.... and Devonte was on fire.
