NFL 2018 Week 2

Making the decision for next week easy.

First two games demonstrated he had a higher ceiling than thought, but his floor has a sinkhole so big it'd swallow two Corvette museums.

Edit: And now they're chanting "Jameis."

haha A welcome wall to any Bucs fan that was thinking this was a great team.

No wonder MMD gave up on football.

I really didn't think FitzMagic played bad and anyone thinking Winston would win that game is a crazy person. His receivers dropped multiple passes including a TD pass that they ended up having to settle for a FG. On top of that, one of his INT's was partly due to Evans stopping short when FitzMagic thought he would keep running the route.

A stiff arm requires that you extend your arm rigidly. That isn't a stiff arm, that's getting thrown out of the way. I don't know how he managed to keep his balance and stay in bounds but was a great play.

I can't believe no one told me about Drew Brees' new amazing spin move.

Hah, it appears he is bracing for a huge hit then suddenly realizes he is somehow still standing and there is an endzone with no one in the way.

Reminds me of a play when I was in high school. We were just getting demolished by a team that was so much better and bigger than us it was ridiculous. On one play I saw our safety break down into a perfect tackle position as the other team's ball carrier was running in open field toward him. As he went for the tackle, the runner stiff armed him in the chest and he fell backwards, and the runner proceeded to step on his chest as he continued on to the end zone. It didn't even seem like he broke stride at all. It was one of the most humiliating things I ever saw on a football field.

Sounds like what Jonah Lomu did to Mike Catt in the Rugby World Cup.

MMD did dislike Conte a lot. So that play would have made him happy.

Ha ha England rugby. There were rubbish in Six Nations this year. Glad to see the stank is historic.

In semi-related news, no one in the NFC South can play defense this year. Exhibit A is Matt Ryan scoring twice on the ground against Carolina in Week 2. Exhibit B is the Brees gif above.

C'mon, Falcons. You get open shots on Drew Brees maybe only once a season. Ya gotta take those!

Ah Packers fans, too stupid to realize they are bitching about a rule that was changed because of Aaron Rodgers' collarbone.

I'll just leave that there. Without calling anyone stupid.

Chris Conte now on IR. That definitely was one hell of a stiff arm.

I'll do a Week 4 post. Probably...... Thursday.

We don't need one, the football season has ended after week 3.

Signed a Niners fan.

That stinks. Although I am not a Niners fan, it's never fun to see a starter go down and out due to injury. Even if it's a Cowboys player..

#1 RB went out for the season before it even started
#2 RB (who was tied for the lead in yards) looks to be done for a week or 2
#1 QB is done for the season
#1 CB is done for a month

I say tank it and play for the #1 pick!

Want to read an article taking the Cardinals to task? Well, there you go.

Oh, and it was written before Sunday's disaster in which Rosen was put in the game in a near hopeless situation.

Chris Conte was apparently playing with a torn PCL.

Milkman could not be reached for comment, but residents of Minnesota claim to have heard echoes around Eagan that sound like, "Bullsh*t! That's how he always looks!"

Carolina just signed Eric Reid. That would never ever ever ever ever happened under prior management.

Oh, and Carolina just got a lot better on defense (assuming Reid doesn't blow out a hammie because he hasn't played in so long).

You were just waiting for it to be Thursday to post that.

Here it is, filthy animals
