Are we using this as the Colts game day thread as well?

 

Here's my take on some of these games:

-I really want to see Packers at Vikings and Bucs at Saints. To me those are the top 2 games of the week and divisional games as well. Regarding the Colts, I still have us winning 27-17, we will cover the 7.5 point spread IMO

No, you will have a separate game thread for the Colts and Jags game. 

 

I thought of having this thread so that members/fans can discuss other games.

Going to be interesting how the entertainment value is with the fan situation. Jags will be the only team today with fans. What did you guys think of the college games with the fan situation. It’s jus not going to be the same.

I have not been following the NFL too closely. I just heard that Gronk is playing for Tampa. Did I hear wrong?

Yes you heard right. He signed right after Brady signed there.

Colts are rusty, play calling suspect, and where is the 1-1 punch in the RB position.  Where's JT? Should be taking the bulk of the workload instead of Hines.  The Defense appears sluggish,

 

It can't be as bad as the Vikes D. 

 

Btw, did you check out the Colts at Jags Game Day thread?

Lol. The two games showing by me are blowouts. Bills winning over the Jets 21-0, and Eagles beating Washington 17-0.

 

Can't watch Vikes game. :(

 

Washington came all the way back and beat the Eagles 27-17. Washington's defense looked great in the second half. Ryan Kerrigan is an underrated player.

What happened to your defense? Thought with Zimmer and Capers it still should be good. Green Bay was scoring at will. Thankfully you only face Rodgers once more.

I did not see the game -- I am out of the area. As you know, football is a complementary game. All three facets of the game affects the other. From what I read from other fans watching the game, the defense was bad but the offense did not sustain drives to give the defense a break. The offense did almost nothing in the first half and the Vikings went down by 2 or 3 scores. That's a killer. 

 

The Vikings have a lot of new players on defense and offense. I think a lack of continuity is underrated when assessing how well a team will perform especially in a year like this when there was no OTAs and limited offseason practice. 

 

It is one game. They looked bad in the first game of last season too and were able to make the playoffs. 

 

Note: Under Mike Zimmer, the Vikes have made the playoffs in odd years and missed them in even years. I wonder if the trend continues.

 

TL;DR (sorry for long reply)

:thinking:Brady realizes he’s doesn’t have 4 games vs Dolphins and Jets anymore plus doesn’t have a Belichick coached D backing him up to increase margin for error. Brady fans are now going, hmm...

Chiefs had very little turnover and Ravens added vets to their D. That’s why they’re going to be a cut above the rest in the AFC.

 

NFC - I think it’s going to come to Seahawks, Saints and Packers again with QBs and teams who’ve been there before. 49ers, unless Jimmy G shows me something in critical moments, they’ll take a step back.

Kyler Murray still has ways to go to read Ds because he is running like Lamar in Year 2. Might have good year fantasy wise but that team makes the wild card round at best with the Seahawks winning the division, IMO.

It's early, but don't sleep on the Cardinals. If week 1 is any indication, Murray and Hopkins are going to take Arizona to another level. 

 

I'm also interested to see how Big Ben will do Monday. 

I'm thinking Giants upset tonight

My biggest take away from Week 1 is that Drew Brees' arm looks completely shot. His throws has little velocity on them. The offense was much more explosive with Hill in there. They really should think of going to him this season. The Bucs were a bit of a train wreck which kind of covered up just how bad Brees' arm looked.
