NFL 2022: The Week 6 thread

Jacoby Brissett definitely playing the Bill Belichick's double agent role today.

Ravens blew another lead. Collapse shared by the offense today too, with a turnover to give up the lead and another turnover to seal it.

Patriots special teamer Brenden Schooler tried to give Belichick a game ball after recovering a muffed punt and it did not go as he expected.

Teams I would have picked to win for the early games: SF, Cleveland, Green Bay, Jacksonville, Baltimore, Tampa.

I do not gamble for a reason.

The Giants are 5-1.

If the Chiefs beat the Bills, the Jets will be division leaders. I'm not sure I'm prepared to see that.

The CBS crew in the studio between games were giddy as school girls about the NY teams being good again. Very annoying

Both the Packers and the Bucs look damn terrible today.

The Rams, too.

Panthers are 90% runs and 10% screen passes and are ahead at the half.

This is the greatest image in the history of social media.

I admit I never imagined the end of Tom Brady’s career being imploding his family to play mediocre football and lose to one of the sh*ttier teams in the NFL on a weekly basis.

But I love it!! Fitting end to one of the biggest jackass frauds ever.

Live look at the Panthers offense:

I don't think I see any point in watching any more Carolina games this season. I've lived through 1-15 and 2-14 seasons, and the 2022 Panthers have the exact same stink.

This KC Buffalo game looks a lot like the last one, down to the wire

Haha, a jackass fraud who got tired of beating all of your teams. Well, except one.

I totally see it, though. He's been absolutely obsessed with his career the whole time. A lot of people do the same thing everyday on a much less notorious level.

I sense a lot of people deleting tweets about a QB controversy in Dallas right now.

Sure. No block in the back. Sure.

The NY Giants are a real high-wire act this season. Every game, particularly every 4th Quarter, teeters on the edge of triumph and disaster.

The Offense is devoid of real firepower, but competent and consistent enough to eke out three touchdowns per game. Daris Slayton has been really stepped up, in the absence of pretty much every other receiver. Saquon Barkley has - well - been Saquon Barkley and therefore indispensable. And Daniel Jones has turned in quietly good performances. In my view, Barkley and Jones must be retained.

The Defense has really reminded me of Giants defenses of old (though almost devoid of game-changing star players). The Defense is rarely spectacular; last night saw its first interception of the season, after all. But it is organised enough to prevent - frankly - better Offenses from pulling away from them.

Two moments, involving the respective QBs stood out to me.

(1) Having been sacked several times earlier, in the 3rd quarter Daniel Jones felt pressure, scrambled, and eventually through the ball away into Row F. I felt like I was watching him improve during the game.

(2) Late in the 4th quarter, Lamar Jackson misses the snap and finds himself in a similar situation, scrambling from pressure. But in this case, he attempts the pass and Love intercepts it. I felt like I was watching him not improve, and demonstrate to the Ravens why a $200m+ contract would be a terrible mistake.

NY is football capital of the league again. It’s a weird feeling but the teams are 9-2 combined.

Well that was fast

It's what happens to those who were OOU in the last regime.

I hope he enjoys the dry desert air!

For two future late-round picks, it seems.

I had to read Schefter's tweet twice before I realized the Panthers were receiving picks rather than throwing them in to get the Cards to take him off their hands.

Speaking of the Panthers and draft picks, y'all remember when Carolina traded up in this year's draft to pick QB Matt Corral in the third round?

Carolina's former coach trotted Corral out there in the preseason behind a line made up of tackling sleds and cardboard cutouts of linemen and promptly got his rookie QB killed. (Matt Corral, #RIP.)

Carolina, meanwhile, moved up by trading two picks to the Patriots. One of those picks, a third-rounder in 2023, is projected to be the 64th overall pick because Carolina is so sorry. The other pick turned into QB Bailey Zappe. (source)

Are we not saying the name anymore?

Meanwhile, Carson Wentz is out 4-6 weeks with a hand fracture.
