i think eating crow is kind of silly. three possible outcomes in a nfl game, no one is going to guess right 100% of the time. should we have to eat crow every time we get one wrong?
vegas got it wrong too, they probably lost money on this game
Speed and Okereke have more upside than Leonard? Wow, that's a major stretch. I think both of these rookies have genuine promise, but Leonard had a special season last year that neither of these guys are likely to replicate. Leonard is an all Pro LB and earned it.
Now, you want to talk about Willis already being better than Geathers? That's one where we could find common ground.
If it were just one game, it would hard to disagree. But this is league wide, nearly every game all day Sunday. Coaches are sending in videos left and right, but I feel few will get an apology, unfortunately.
Officials are refereeing scared, IMHO. I feel video replay and the latest technology has actually accelerated it. I might be for removal of all coaches challenges/reviews, and only have booth stoppage in last 2 minutes of the game to correct Rams/Saints level debacles only. Then hold refs accountable.
Fans are wrong quite often. Many will come back, step up, and own it. A few disappear for awhile. Hopefully, threads as such as here is more of a lighthearted nature and also offer opportunity for some to say **Mea Culpa, I forgot about "Any given Sunday."**
I never made a prediction, because I was hoping for a W. But I will admit I had little conviction in that hope until the game progressed. (From that cautiously optimistic outlook that I often have) So-
