    Denver-Minnesota (8-11-18)

    The Vikings looked great.... ..I know the Eagles won last year.......Packers are better.......Rams bought up everybody in sight. But Minnesota with Kirk C..... ..they just rolled behind all their QBs....and defensively, they were already No,.1 in the NFC. Kirk looked very good..and the Vikings were without some O-linemen They've got a new kicker, too...they say he makes 70 yarders in practice...seriously Denver didnt play some defenders including Von Miller but I guess they wanted to see if Paxton Lynch had improved... ..and he wasnt just bad...he got stomped Does any body think Chad Kelly plays a lot like Baker Mayfield ...

    Denver-Minnesota (8-11-18)

    with respect... I dont think it was brilliant play calling or a lack of knowledge of Nick Foles on Minnesota that created a 38-7 margin. That's far to much of a gap for coaches or game prep to have much to do with it.. Foles had played the previous 2 games for the Eagles.. ….the No.1 defense in the NFL (in several years) against an average offense (with Foles) at best. If they played again tomorrow I'd still tell you the Vikings would win

    Denver-Minnesota (8-11-18)

    Vikings have a hard core schedule.. ..at Green Bay, at L.A. Rams...at Philadelphia at New England.. But they had the No.1 defense in the NFL last year.. still don't know what happened against the Eagles

    Any traction for Khalil Mack?

    'J' I think that's changed. When you have a player like Luck.....and he's healthy, you are fairly certain of being in playoff contention. That's where I think we are. A playoff team. But to contend for the conference title, we need an impact player on both sides of the ball. We don't have that. I don't want to build a team for 2022..Luck is in his prime. I want to try to win now... Green Bay has two No.1 draft choices next year...They are of no value this season. They need stars to play with Aaron Rodgers right now and they know it. A healthy all-pro?....and we give up no starting players to get him..??? ….We need to jump on this if they'll pick up the phone..

    You collect extra picks to make a deal like this.. Talk is the Packers are in hard to get Mack...we shoudl go in harder... Draft picks are fools gold.. With Andrew back, we wont be drafting in the Top-15 anyway

    Any traction for Khalil Mack?

    I'm not so sure the Raiders wont do this.....new coach requires...new 'buy in' for players Mack apparently isnt buying and he's under contract I'd give up a '1' to get him...and I'd offer a '1' and a '3'....3s are replacable Draft choices cant play.....Mack can. His acquisition would make us the favorite in our division

    AJ Johnson

    He's a free agent .linebacker just signed by Denver...3-time all-SEC player at Tennessee....big 6-3, 245.....sounds like a good pick up, right?. But he hasn't played in 3 years. Johnson was acquitted on a 2015 charge of aggravated rape of a co-ed and every NFL team forgot his phone number His attorneys called the woman a liar.....The jury acquitted him in July and he gets a good job on a team a little short at LB. The accuser is one of 8 women set to benefit from the University of Tennessee's 2.5 million dollar settlement against the University of Tennessee for handling sexual assault allegations. I dont think we've heard the end of this.

    Denver-Minnesota (8-11-18)

    The Vikings' 1st string rush put some quick heat on Case Saturday night and I thought he made a couple of bad decisions on where to throw the ball. But Kelly clearly has that attack style mentality and he wasn't playing with any of the top receivers. He's got to be the No. 2 guy. I try not to put too much stock in college results but I keep remembering the 'trivia' that Kelly led the Rebels into Alabama and won.

    Denver-Minnesota (8-11-18)

    Maybe. The Broncos keep insisting that Paxton Lynch get chance after chance to prove himself at QB when that ship has sailed.. Pax played half the game and I was feeling sorry for him. He was so inept ….the way Chad Kelly played against the Vikings....Lynch has never had a game like that in 2-plus years. ..and Trevor Siemian and Kyle Sloter...2 guys Denver gave up to keep Lynch....looked pretty good back-up style for the Vikings

    Denver-Minnesota (8-11-18)

    Minnesota looked good in every facet (except special teams, maybe) Chad Kelly was very, very good

    The NYGs

    The New York Giants.......did very, very well/// They now have Saquan Barkley and Odell Beckham as offensive game breakers....Nobody has 2 like that On the O-line along with Vollmer the free agent left tackle, they drafted Will Hernandez the 'giant' (excuse the pun) left guard They added OLB Lorenzo Carter and BJ Hill a good looking tackle..to an already good defense... Get ready for a lot of good old New York hype.......somewhere Eli is smiling

    [Lombardi] Deon Cain's injury might be season-ending

    I like the circus but not on Sundays.. …..

    [Lombardi] Deon Cain's injury might be season-ending

    we weren't the only team to lose a rookie for the season on opening night of the pre-season..

    After watching one game, I wouldnt make that judgment...….He gives no reason to believe he isn't pretty good ….I'd guess he's probably going to be better than Ahmad Bradshaw..who had a couple of 1,000-yard seas0ns...

    [Lombardi] Deon Cain's injury might be season-ending

    That's the way I understand it, too. Plus an experienced trainer has a very good guess.... I've seen guys who can put his hands on your knee and leg and he knows what he should and shouldn't feel immediately
  17. I'm trying to accept that fact.....but I agree it is a fact

    Class Comments From Texans Radio On Luck

    Maybe teams in our division have more respect for Luck than some 'national people' do
  19. We're easier to predict because of added depth. Vic, Myles or Darren Collison sitting out a game doesn't handcuff us like it did last year ..and who knows? Maybe we'll pick up a 'Cole Hamels' at the trade deadline!!
  20. 50 is that 'bar' where the good teams go.. In a 4-game season series....we should be on top (meaning 3-1 or 4-0) against Cleveland, Atlanta. the Bulls, the Knicks,. the Nets, Charlotte and Miami
  21. The networks want a marquee team in the Eastern time zone... ……..now that 'Believe-land' has nothing but Love. Indiana-Boston has a lot of 'storylines'
  22. Lakers will be on 43 times.. ..but they were on 35 times last season….
  23. I wonder how many times Cleveland will be on
