NFL 2020: Week 1

Seahawks 10-6. I can't predict whether this will be good enough for a playoff spot.

I don't think any team in the NFC West has a great record this year - that division is so tough.

I think it'll come down to tiebreakers with SF/LA. The rams had a super bowl hangover but that's still a loaded roster. ARI is super dangerous as well.

Browns 3-9. 5-11 if we play all the games.

I am very concerned about:

SEA pass rush
SEA OL
Failing to unleash Russell

That last one is borderline criminal in today's NFL and with DK and Lockett. Compare Russ when they are playing grind ball the first 3 quarters and then when they finally give him the ball when they HAVE to. I will argue he's better than anyone in the League.

As a Ravens fan, I am most concerned about overambitious expectations.

Super Bowl or bust, sir.

Great, I'm ruined. Every time OBJ shows up during NFL Network's pregame, I start giggling like a ten year old. Thanks, Internet.

I had heard nothing about the OBJ stories so I googled it.

I now have regrets.

OBJ is a great football player...

And of course that had to be the 69th post in the thread.

The Jags are the only home team today allowing fans in the stadium, to 25% capacity.

The "looks like a normal Jags game" tweets are writing themselves.

Well played. So well played. Teresa even laughed hard.

Oh that is strong.

Teddy and Lamar at the same time today.

And just found out NFL reddit streams got shut down. Another 2020 casualty.

The Jags broadcast keeps coming back from commercial to hot mics, but since Spero Dedes and Adam Archuleta aren't Thom Brennaman, it hasn't been a problem.

Ahhhh nothing sweeter than watching Kirk Cousins get sacked.

It's appropriate as I'm wearing a #69 McGlinchey jersey right now.

Dumped DirecTV a few years ago, replaced it with YouTube TV for a while, then got rid of that. Just realized this means I'd have to watch broadcast TV and I don't think of done that since some point in the late 90s.

Oh, hey, something called Locast exist that streams broadcast TV. I guess I'll use that. I wonder if I have an antenna somewhere?

The Jags gameday thread on Reddit said to "google nfl bites" as an alternative to the old NFL streams area.

And that's the last reference to streams stuff I'm going to make here.

NFL Bites is dead too now, I believe. I gave it a go again and just a bunch of ads.

Sports Byte is one and I got some of their stuff working (try markkly).

That's legit?

Hey all, the Browns might not be very good.

Well Teddy finally got the lead back and it last 2 minutes. 4 min left to win the game, Carolina.

Also I saw on Twitter that Cam finally got a roughing call with the Pats. Just like I predicted.

What's harder for the announcers to get used to? Saying "Las Vegas Raiders" or "Washington Football Team?"

Every sports pundit who declared the Jaguars are "tanking for Trevor" can officially go f**k themselves.

Minshew 3 TDs, 1 incomplete pass.

Jaguars 1-0

You're taking this preseason game way too seriously.

Why does Tony Romo sound like Frank Caliendo doing an impression of Tony Romo?

Carr vs Teddy in the "Can you believe they drafted Bortles and Manziel ahead of us?" Bowl.

Jags don't win preseason games.

Geez what happened to Philly?
