NFL Opening Week 2023 Game Thread

Toney was a Giants draft pick. My friend the Giants season ticket holder sent me this text message:

Toney had the night from Hell. But if anyone can turn him around, it's Andy Reid. Richie James did a nice job for Giants last yr, but he's not going to be of great help to Mahomes.

 

He invited me to the Giants game this weekend but I cannot go. We are attending the Oct. 22 game against the Commanders.

Moore is just not living up to expectations.


None of the Chiefs WRs are. Toney gifted them 7, he’s always unhealthy. Kelce being out on top of less than stellar talent at WRs exposed their WRs. No team can play without at least 1 marquee guy that’s go to - be it Edelman, Gronk even if the outside WRs aren’t cutting it

Turns out mahomes still needs great receivers.

There was a lot of drops to Mahomes defense. Yeah every team needs at least 1 WR/TE they can depend on. Brady, Montana, and Peyton needed at least 1. Kelce was out. They lost Hill last year and still won the SB.

 

Having said all that, me buying the Lions hype train looks great tonight :thmup:

I don’t get why everyone just writes Goff off. He has been to a SB and he was very young when he went to that SB.


When everything is in structure and he’s protected well, he’s outstanding. But when Pagano with the Bears or Belichick with the Patriots blitzed him with a less than Top 5 OL that he has now, Goff couldn’t make up like other elite QBs could.

How many had the Chiefs as their pick in the Survivor pool?

My survivor pool, no one goes out in week 1. It just determines what you pick the rest of the year 

 

So if you picked KC in week 1, you would have to pick losers each week.

 

 

I always take the Colts week 1.

I am feelin my Lions. I can call them my Lions because I am the only fool in the world to pick them to win the NFC Happy Season 3 GIF by The Office

Go Lions! And Vikings! I’d be happy with either of those two making it to the big dance. We’ve seen enough of San Fran and Philly.

I agree. I like Kirk and the Vikings. I do have them making the playoffs. As long as Philly or SF gets knocked off, it will be all good. The Lions have something waiting for Philly Jim Carrey Reaction GIF

    • Also the reason  you go wr is to make sure you have the right  qb. If he stinks with an star cast of offensive  weapons  then you know you need another qb
    • Very true.  Josh Allen is another one.  The Bills traded for Diggs to help him out and they took off.  Now he’s gone.  I expect the Bills to do something big again to help him out.  Once you get your quarterback the next step is making sure he has the weapons around him.  Right now AR has some real quality weapons.  Getting him another one could really set the team up for a nice run.
    • Yes, if I'm forced to choose, I'd go with Williams, despite him earning some reputation with all the garbage talk from his camp even since the year before the actual draft. I read a scout saying that the PR guys (including his father) Williams has led him to those bad reputation and decisions, when he should've gone under the radar with much more good vibes surrounding him. Anyway, it's on him now to prove by his play in the NFL.   I'd also go with Daniels, as Williams seems just out of reach for anyone other than Bears. Concerns with Daniels are about his durability and the ability to dissect NFL defenses, but if he becomes injury prone in the NFL, at least that'd help the team to move on to finding the next franchise QB.   My overall gripe with this QB class is that no one stands out as being strong in his ability to go through progressions and reads, as many of their offenses seemed to involve limited reads. So it falls squarely on the individual's intelligence to be able to translate at the highest level, and there's no way any fan like us would get to know without working him out and bringing him in for interviews - which teams are doing with those QBs. So, NFL teams will need to figure out who among this class can consistently pick apart NFL defenses or at least grow into that level.   This QB class is different because the tape of them doesn't tell that part of the story due to the offenses they played in. 
    • It is about who will have a greater impact. Cj stroud is surrounded by more talent on offense  than Richardson  currently. We need to close the gap. Zone corners will be there in the second.  If we go wr in the second  all the best ones will be gone and we may be stuck with another Alec pierce 
    • The only similarities that Ballard and Veach have is that they were both on KC at the time Mahomes was drafted (Veach is the GM now obviously), and they both build well through the draft. Other than that, they are different in every other way as GMs.    You are correct, Ballard is more like Dorsey. Ballard is actually best friends with Dorsey. They had a thing in the draft where Dorsey always prank called Ballard during the draft. Was kinda funny.    If AR hits, then we will have gotten there as a playoff team the slow way. However, with Ballard, it will have taken a lot onger than it ever should have. People can blame Lucks retirement, Reich, or whatever, but GMs generally don't start with a franchise QB when they take over a team. IMO, Ballard was a scout who had no idea how to be a GM when he took over, and when Luck retired, it completely exposed him. He finally figured it out 7 years in his tenure. Might be too little, too late.
