0 sacks, 0 INTs.

I'd play him over Zach Wilson.

"Is Zach Wilson cheeks?" should be the new "is Joe Flacco elite?"

Why does a 10-point lead feel completely insurmountable? It reminds me of the DeShone Kiser error.

Aged like fine wine!

Mullens with a couple big 3rd down throws downfield right after my posts.

MULLENSANITY!

I know the sh*tbag Henry Ruggs is gone, but trying to make Zay Jones be Ruggs is not the answer.

Raiders got hosed on that "holding" call.

Raiders had to get into field goal range twice, had to kick it twice, and still got it done.

I still don't understand what counted and what didn't but that was a thriller!

And this whole thing aged like Sushi

So, they have a "doctor in a red hat" to go along with the "blue medical tent".

I've still never heard them just say "medical tent" since I started paying attention to it. It's always "blue medical tent". It's like a children's show.

Based on my experiences since early 2020, a doctor with a red hat can't mean anything good.

That kind of "doctor" probably "went" the "med school" in the Bahamas.

I 100% forgot there was the regular Monday night game. Looks like it was a snoozer

The teams in the regularly scheduled game played like they were the ones playing with a messed up schedule.

Someone on the Jets is getting fired after Christmas. 42 min long video from JT! That length is usually reserved for Patreon backers where he goes over everything. That's how bad the Jets are.

And there's more than one whacky design.

I didn't like Zach Wilson in the draft and this year has made it easy to keep thta position, but the guy is in the dumbest offense I've ever seen. Even worse than the Jags. No wonder he's not comfortable.

He also can't read. Maybe it's the twitchy, zero pocket presence bit that any young guy would have on the Jets this season. But he can't even read on RPOs, which I'm told these kids have been running since they were in diapers.

This is nuts. At this rate Deion Sanders will end up the Jets OC/HC in the next couple of years.

If you don't have 40 mins, the first two plays are awfully and will basically give you your fill for the day

What? LaFleur the Younger didn't become an offensive guru from his job as Baby Shanny's offensive gameplan printer and passer-outer?

Why are both games on at 7 tonight on Fox? One a West coast game too. Start them both at 7 local time or something. At least stagger an hour. 2 games but not really 2 games. Just whatever regional game. At least make Tuesday football fun. It's just another 4pm Sun timeslot.

Well it’s not like either game has any national appeal…doubt anyone is going to watch outside their markets

Money. Nobody paid the NFL enough to make these national games.

Yeah the only reason for the early game yesterday was that ESPN has the contract that the MNF spot is theirs alone with no other games

Wasn't he immunized?

That was Rodgers. Beasley couldn't even be bothered to stand in a glass cage.

I guess that's what threw me. And the other times we've had 7 and 10 MNF. But that's all ESPN

Well, hopefully he doesn't get Covid toe!

The coverage map for the Tuesday games is fascinating.

PHI-WAS goes to the East Coast (duh) and most of the Midwest. LAR-SEA goes to West Coast markets.

HOWEVER, there are two Midwest carve-outs for Rams-Seahawks. One is St Louis/KC. The other is Cleveland/Detroit/Milwaukee.

The first one is easy: because the Rams used to play in Missouri, and the NFL thinks that enough St. Louis Rams fans have gotten over the bitterness of the move.

The other one is more baffling to me. It's not an NFC West thing because Phoenix and SF are getting this game. The only thing I can think of is the QBs -- Stafford played in Detroit for years, and Wilson played college ball at Wisconsin for one season. Anyone have any better ideas?

Yeah that's a weird one.

1. The Rams are the only team of the four currently in a playoff spot, and are a potential Green Bay opponent in the postseason.

2. Detroit plays against Seattle in a couple weeks.

Man, the officiating at the end of these games.

Seattle got hosed on that 3rd down "false start", then apparently defensive pass interference from contact on underthrown passes aren't a penalty for the Rams.

Yeah, this was the appeal to me. There's also a minor rivalry with SEA and GB these days.
