NFL - week 6


#1

I don’t think anybody, least of all P Rivers and Mike McCoy, expected that. Chargers only mildly instead of collectively shit the bed, beating Superbowl champs Denver in Thursday night football. Hope this is a turning point for them. They’re a better team than 2-4, just need the mental toughness. Bosa adding a lot for them in the front.

Elsewhere, Buffalo should go 4-2 at home versus the 49ers. Hats off to Rex for getting Lorenzo Alexander and Zach Williams to play like pro-bowlers. If we had any form of passing game we would be very good indeed. Also, Kap’s back!

Looking forward to Dallas v Green Bay. Should be a close one. Ryan Tannehill could be on the next bus out of Miami via A&E as his team welcome the Steelers, expecting a turnover and sack fest. Carolina will look to try and get their season back on track at New Orleans, could be a high-scoring mess of a game, that.

AOB?

Will be interesting to see the reaction Kaepernick gets, especially with it being an away game first up.

And by interesting, I obviously mean thoroughly depressing


#3

Yeah. I’m not expecting a positive reception but I just hope it isn’t as bad as I think it will be. It will obviously be bad. Oh Buffalo.

Will be interesting to see how the players respond if it’s really bad.


#4

Buffalo’s a pretty white city too, no?


#5

Think so. Trump had a pretty big rally there in April. Rex Ryan introduced him - he’s been getting questions about it all week and is doing his best to play dumb.


#6

gulp


#7

Rex Ryan at a Trump rally. Feels like we were lucky to escape a singularity of awful forming, sucking everything and everyone in and destroying the universe.


#8

It’s a very mixed / divided city, like so many places.

This is worth a read (don’t read the comments, naturally)


#9

Watching the Philly v redskins game.
A kick return and intercept :joy_cat:


#10

This Panthers-Saints game is pretty crazy


#11

Saints in ridiculous shootout game at the Superdome shocker. Must be pretty good fun being a Saints fan, even when they’re bad they’re pretty good fun. Maybe @brusma could confirm?


#12

Seattle just reminding Falcons that this season can only go so well. like, at best, we lose in the conference game.


#13

oh hey… that helps.


#14

That game’s turned around somewhat


#15

I’ve only been a Falcons fan for two and a bit seasons and I’m already trained in pessimism. but… yeah?


#16

irked at that no call, but feeling like Falcons passed a major test anyway. dominant in the third quarter.
