  • Life is meaningless and full of pain.

    I'm kidding. I finally got to actually watch a Titans game last night, and it appears to me that they have serious offensive line issues.

    If we can somehow beat the Falcons next week, then I'll have my wish of going 2-2 during this 4-week suspension of our best offensive lineman. Just hoping that will bring about some changes to our offensive production.
  • hoping for Kansas vs Patriots in AFC championship again. That game was insane it was the real Superbowl imo

    Same for gurley.
    So I’m hoping the giants and the rams have good seasons.

    Only two things I enjoy seeing Eli do is his “Eli face” and beating the Patriots in the Super Bowl.

    I'm going to REALLY enjoy watching the Patriots destroy the Giants later this year.

    Pats look Godly right now.

    They do but the Steelers and Dolphins also look polarly awful.

    Dolphins are probably tanking, and they might be the worst team in NFL history. I'll defend the Steelers, because they lost to Seattle by less than a field goal despite Big Ben missing a good chunk of the game.

    Man... You had to go and say it out loud...

    Sheesh!

    My bad... I forgot!

  • That Ravens/Chiefs game yesterday was awesome. I'm traditionally a Ravens hater, and I tend to like the Chiefs, but near the end of that game I found myself pulling for Baltimore. Both of the quarterbacks in that game are amazing.

    I also watched the Texans/Chargers game, and pulled for the L.A. of course (my wife, the Houston fan, didn't approve). But that one was a good game too. Also, couple great quarterbacks in that one too. I'm a Rivers fan, and Watson, even though he plays for my hated rivals, is starting to grow on me.

    I did NOT watch the Cowboys game. We all knew that one wasn't going to be competitive.

    Saints & Bills defenses looked superb Sunday.

    Boy, our O-Line and receiving core looked awful. Brady & McDaniels had been masking those problems, but neither of them could do anything. Luckily, our defense is ridiculous this year, and Matthew Slater is a special teams god. The Bills are a VERY good defense though, so hopefully we can get back on track @ Washington.
  • The Giants Defense still sucks, they just looked not terrible because they were playing the Redskins. No pass rush and pretty poor coverage from the secondary. And they've got more injured Linebackers than active ones.
    Jones looks good at QB, and his mobility is a huge plus over Eli, but I hate seeing Eli on the sideline. And now Barkley is out for at least a month. Gallman looked okay, but again, they were playing the 'Skins. They're going to need Tate to get up to speed quickly coming off of suspension for a big game against the Vikings.
    It's going to be a long season. :'(

    The less said about the Jets, the better. Except for Bell and a slightly better than average Defense, nothing is working. I blame Gase.

    Where does Eli go from here? Will he ride off into the sunset after this year? Do you expect him to look to be traded, or remain a Giant, as a backup?

  • Well, it's kind of hard to speculate.
    Eli has a no-trade clause in his contract, but he thinks he still has a few years of football left. I think he'd make a great teaching backup, or even a QB coach, but he wants to actually play.
    If I had to guess right now, I think he might see if there's a team that shows interest after the season is over.
    I'd prefer if he retired and took a job with the Giants, like David Tyree did.

  • Well, all 3 of my football team lost this weekend. The silver lining is that it's been a while since I've experienced this. I just wish I were able to watch Titans games, because they obviously have issues, but I can't personally diagnose their problems, and have to rely on post-game articles and commentary.

    I have NFL RedZone, so I see a lot of teams. I've only watched one full Titans game this year, their loss to the Jags on TNF, but from what I've seen, they have massive issues on the offensive line. Derrick Henry and Dion Lewis are only averaging 3.7 and 3.5 yards per carry respectively, and they've given up more sacks than any other team in the NFL. Luckily, the Titans have a great defense that ranks #5 in the NFL.

    Funnily, it seems like the Patriots have similar issues. We rank 28th in yards per carry. Luckily, Brady looks as good as ever with the exception of the Bills game, where he was awful, and the defense is #1 in points per game, yards per game, yards lost due to sacks, QB hits, interceptions, defensive touchdowns, passer rating against, net yards per attempt against, sack percentage, completion percentage against, passes defended, 3rd down percentage against, Red Zone TD percentage against, etc. Regardless, I really do feel like the Patriots need a deep threat WR who can beat people over the top. I'm hoping for Diggs, AJ Green, or AB, if he's cleared of all his charges.
  • Yeah the Patriots appear to have the best defense in the NFL.

    My cable company cut out Red Zone and the NFL Network this season. I didn't complain at all because I knew it would give me more free time, and it has!
  • Looks like this will be Marcus Mariota's last season in Tennessee. Ryan Tannehill has been anounced as the starter next week.

    I have mixed emotions. I tend to be loyal to a fault in regards to Tennessee quarterbacks, so my inclination is to make excuses for Mariota, but it's out of my control. I hope Tannehill shines, but in a lot of ways his career is similar to Mariota's (minus a playoff win).

    Mariota had some great moments, obviously the biggest of which was the Chiefs comeback in the playoffs, but he never really had much elite level talent around him on offense, and it seemed like (just from what I've seen) he struggled to master passing from the pocket. On the bright side, he somehow has a higher career playoff passer rating than Tom Brady.

    Tannehill is Tannehill, and he is pretty similar to Mariota, although he's probably a more consistent pocket passer (two seasons of 4000+ yards, three years of 20+ touchdowns). Fortunately, the 2020 draft looks like it will be loaded at the QB position (from what little I know about College Football), so the Titans could probably land a franchise quarterback if they decide to go that direction.

    Yeah, the bright side is that I really want to sweep the Texans this year (and every year), and the way they're playing and the way we're playing even beating them once would be a feat. I still don't really expect us to sweep them, or even win one, but the change-up at QB brings enough unknowns that I have to say it's at least possible at this point.

    Catch me in a couple weeks and I may not have that positive of an outlook, but I have it at this moment, and that's something I guess. LOL.

  • Anyone watch my Lions get cheated on MNF against the Packers?
  • Anyone watch my Lions get cheated on MNF against the Packers?

    I watched all but the final 30 minutes of that game. I had to take care of some stuff and thought I'd have time to get back to it. When I did get back, they were interviewing Aaron Rodgers post-game.

    I've read articles about it, but didn't see it.

    For what it's worth, I was pulling for Detroit.
  • Anyone watch my Lions get cheated on MNF against the Packers?

    Yeah, saw it. Didn't agree with the calls, but calls get blown (even after being challenged) in the NFL.
    The League went as far as saying the second call was incorrect, but can't do anything about it now, unfortunately.

    Trey Flowers got called for 2 illegal hands to the face calls in that game. He had not been called for that penalty in his entire CAREER prior to that game (he played for the Patriots for years).
  • Well, Titans have painted themselves in a corner. Need to upset the Chiefs next weekend just to be .500.

    Oh well. I still love football.

    Baltimore looked great last night.

    Hopefully Dallas can beat the Giants tonight, but that's never a foregone conclusion. Division rivalry and all.

    Patriots appear to have serious issues at OL, WR, TE, and LB. It's a bottom five receiving core and O-Line, and the rush defense is pretty bad. You probably wouldn't guess from these descriptions that they're 8-1, but I'm officially worried. Fortunately, nobody else in the NFL has anyone who even remotely resembles Lamar Jackson. Hopefully their first round pick WR, N'Keal Harry, steps up.

    If the Titans were in any other division in the AFC, they'd probably be second, but the AFC South is pretty loaded.
  • Looks like I will finally get to watch a Titans game this year on my TV. I was able to watch the Thursday night game vs the Jags on my phone.

    The Chiefs have a huge market audience, so my fingers have been crossed all week.

    Haha!

    Yeah, I've followed Mahomes' progress this week. He's been practicing the last few days, so I expected him to play. I'm not sweating it one way or another. In my opinion, Tennessee is actually weaker than their 4-5 record indicates, so I relish a challenge.

    If we lose, no big deal, my expectations won't be much lower than they are at the moment.

    If we can win? That would have a bigger impact, for me, in terms of the team's potential.

    I figure KC wins this one. The Titans offense is bad.

    I would agree, although Tannehill has impressed me over the past three weeks and his stats are rather impressive (70 percent completion percentage, 6-3 TD-INT ratio, 279 yards per game, 102.6 passer rating, 8.3 yards per attempt).

    I swear the Titans are the weirdest team in the history of sports. It feels like they lose every game they're supposed to win and win every game they're supposed to lose!

    As a Derrick Henry fantasy owner, I thank the Titans, but I feel sorry for Mahomes tbh. From Texas Tech to the NFL, he's been scoring 30+ and losing his whole life.

    I told my wife the exact same thing this weekend. If the Titans could just win the games they're expected to win, they might be a force in the NFL.

    This is year 4 of the exact same kind of inconsistency. We're consistent at being inconsistent. In 2016 (coincidentally, also week 10) we beat the Packers 47-25, only to turn around and get beat by the Colts the next week. In 2017, I visited a buddy in Arizona and watched the Titans lose an ugly game to a terrible Cardinals team. 2 weeks later, we're playing a close one against the resurgent Rams in McVay's first year. We limped into the playoffs that year, and eliminated the Chiefs in KC. In 2018, we beat the Patriots 34-10 (also week 10), only to turn around and get creamed by the Colts the next week.

    My guess is that it all depends on the running game. If it's working, then we've got a shot to beat whoever, and when it isn't, well, we're probably going to lose to whoever. Maybe it's the O-Line.

  • I'm looking forward to watching Houston @ Baltimore and New England @ Philadelphia the most this weekend.

    If only it worked that way. I've often dreamed of being a Steelers fan, but barring some sort of bounty-gate type scandal, I can't see myself switching from the Titans. And even then, I would probably just walk away from the NFL completely.

  • Giants keep losing. Jones still doesn't realize his O-Line can't pass block for 5 minutes (or is it 2 seconds?) and he holds the ball until a defender knocks it out of his hand. The Defense can't get pressure on QB's and the Secondary can't cover. Oh well. I still watch. :)

    Jets are surprisingly winning against "better" teams recently. But they also lost to the previously winless Dolphins, so I don't know what's going on. Darnold seems to be playing a bit better, so that's a plus. I saw a stat that said that 25% of their salary cap is on Injured Reserve. The only luck the Jets have is bad luck. Plus bad drafting leading to over-spending in free agency to make up for it. I think they'll be a much better team in a few years.
    I still watch. :)

    Off-topic: Baby Yoda is awesome. I hope he plays a major role in the show from now on.

  • Jets are at least capable of putting together a couple of impressive, dominant victories this year. I think that's great for the bad season they're having. I heard it said yesterday that you can't really rule them out of the playoff race, as they have a realistic shot at making it to 7-7.

    I'm pleased with the Titans. We were 2-4 after Mariota's last start, and Tannehill has us clawed back to 6-5.
  • Yeah, it at least shows what they are capable of.
    From what little I've seen of the Titans, they seem like a fun team to watch.
    Better album: Achtung Baby or The Joshua Tree?
  • Titans have been on an incredible run. 6-1 in the last 7 games. Currently tied with Houston atop the division, and we play them 2 out of the next 3 weeks. I'd love to win the division and make the playoffs, but regardless, I'm pretty satisfied with the way the team has responded under Tannehill this season.

    Bonus at this point is that since 2 of these last 3 games are against Houston, I will actually get to watch the games. And I bet if we beat them Sunday, that the powers that be will find a way to make our game against New Orleans nationally televised.

    I have a good buddy who is a Cowboys fan, and he claims the Packers as his 2nd favorite team. The Broncos are showing some signs of potential for next season right now.

    The Cowboys are my 2nd favorite team, but my wife claims I have a "man-crush" on Aaron Rodgers.
  • Even though I'm not a Packers fan, Aaron Rodgers is just fun to watch.

  • Okay ladies and gentlemen, the final Sunday of the regular season is almost here. How's your team doing?

    For me, it's pretty awful. Giants and Jets have been getting a win or two here and there, but they were never really playing well. Both QB's look like they could be the real deal, and RB's are good, but the supporting casts are not very good in the Jets case and both Defenses have big problems. Going to be a rough off-season.
    I'm looking forward to these last two games.

    I'm looking forward to these last two games.

    I think the Jets are getting far too much criticism for their performance this year. Their QB missed three starts (and the Jets lost all of them) and the quarterback of their defense has only played two games ALL SEASON. With those injuries, and the relative disappointment of Bell's season, I think it's kind of remarkable that the Jets have even won six games, and even more remarkable that they actually have a winning record since Darnold's return.

    IMO it's not even debatable that Saquon was playing hurt for much of the year. He returned way too quickly from the high ankle sprain and he looked like a different player last week. I have no idea what to make of DJ. He has four games this year with four or more total TDs and zero picks (only Lamar, who will win MVP, has more), but he also has five games with three or more turnovers. I've of the opinion that he's a very good QB who has a big fumbling problem.
  • I think the Giants big problem on Offense is the O-line. They're not as good as DJ thinks they are. He holds the ball too long and bad things happen. Saquon should have stayed out longer until he was 100%.
    The Jets haven't used Bell properly, I think. The O-Line is also not playing well in either run or pass blocking. Too many injuries, including their big free agent signing at LB.

  • Titans played very conservatively against the Texans yesterday. I mean, with all the players they rested, the only way they'd win that game is if we made serious errors. But that gets us in the playoffs, and we're 9-7 for 4 seasons in a row now. We were horrible for so many years, I'm fairly happy with so many consecutive winning seasons.

    @MyLittleGreenFriend - Best of luck Saturday night!

    I have to admit, I was rooting against the Titans yesterday because I think they were by far the best of the possible six seeds, and tbh I would much rather play Buffalo. Henry looks like the hottest RB in the league, and Tannehill has been pretty great all year. Best of luck, although I think we'll need it more than you.
  • I’m writing a letter to the league to see if the Haslam’s, Jimmy and Dee, can be forced to sell the Browns to someone who actually knows how to build and maintain a successful NFL franchise for the city of Cleveland.

    As a life long Browns fan this has become intolerable. Worst professional sports team in the history of sports. Shame.
  • The Browns remind me of the Cowboys. They have a whole lot of talent on both sides of the ball, but can't seem to win games.
