Oh boy.  My boys in blue really stuck it to Washington today.  Here's hoping Josh Allen keeps posting those kinds of numbers!

Defeat snatched from the Jaws of Victory.  Another loooong Lions season this will be...
 :violin: :crazy: :flame:
Look on the bright side, they get to play the hapless Bears and their moronic head coach next week.  >:D

They will take up the challenge and find a new and impressive way to loose. Like the Chargers and their illegal shift routine.

With the Bears being completely incompetent this season it's a toss up as to who wins. Goff might actually get his first W outside of Sean McVay.

Speaking of the Rams, I thought they were nuts giving all those draft picks for Stafford, but now theyre doing the Bucs strategy from last year and its paying huge dividends for them.

So, as you might imagine, there's a whole lot of Broncos fandom crowing about 3-0, how amazing Bridgewater is playing, they could be a playoff team this year, especially with the Chiefs tanking, etc.

Bunk. Every word of it, bunk.

Well, sort of. There's been a lot to be happy about, if we're looking at those games. Bridgewater really has been fantastic, with a gaudy stat line to show off for his first three regular-season games in orange, and that defense- even with Bradley Chubb out long-term yet again (seriously, come on!), is just stellar- Von Miller looks like he didn't miss any time at all. And hey, 3-0 is still 3-0.

BUT.

Look around the NFL and pick the three worst teams you see. If your list isn't the three teams they've faced so far (Giants, Jaguars, Jets), in some order or other, I'd be surprised. You SHOULD be 3-0. There's no excuse for losing one of those games- or even letting one be close. This is what Denver SHOULD be at right now- any other outcome is impossible to conjur without causing a stroke.

So, as many non-Denver fans are doing, I'm demanding that they back this up now with beating a real team. These three were preseason stuff, NFL rosters that only qualify as such because there's no relegation in American football. But the Ravens are coming to down this weekend, and even as denuded as their defense is by injury, even without their top three running backs, it's still a combination of the most dangerous kicker in all of football (at Mile High Stadium- could he hit 70 yards there?), and of course Lamar Jackson... I mean, as long as he's on the field for Baltimore, they're dangerous. He wins games on his own- and while I expect he'll have a long afternoon of running like hell from Von, I also expect he's up to the task.

So, I don't expect Denver to get away with a win here- I just want them to make it interesting all the way to the end. But I'm not blind to hope- the call has been 'beat a real opponent, and then I'll be impressed', and if they can get away with beating Baltimore... okay. That's all I need to see- they might not be a playoff team, as good as the AFC seems to be this year, and I'm not daft enough to think they have a hope in hell of taking the division so long as Mahomes is drawing breath. But... the Broncos have been so bad for so long, it's nice to have an ember of hope again- defeating the Ravens would turn that into an open, glowing flame.

That's why I'm not particularly concerned about being 1-2.  Those games are against three of the other top 4 teams in the AFC and were all within seconds of victory.

These Chiefs have all the hallmarks of those 2-2 Patriots teams that break hearts for the next 16 games while taking home a ring. :D

 8)  So far, so good!  But after 47 years it’s hard to not be pessimistic.  I do think us moving on from Goff was a tough and expensive lesson.

You sound a lot like Lions fans.

And we will have to move on from Goff, too.  Sooner rather than later, I hope...

Okay Lion fans, does your team spend all week coming up with new unique ways to loose?
The snap ricocheted off Goff's shoulder and directly into the hands of defensive end Bilal Nichols

the odds of that happening, are so incredible to be hard to beleive it was possible??

At least he's honest about his performance. Is that gonna limit his new contract payout?

Yesterday was the kind of Sunday that I wish I had NFL Sunday Ticket. The only early game available to me was CLE@MIN. Putrid second half... unless you are really, really into punting. I would have gone out and mowed the lawn if it weren't raining.

The Sunday Ticket is worth it, especially for a Cowboy fan and his Bear fan spouse out of market. And seeing Matt Rhule get his team a five yard penalty to give the Cowboys a first down in the last possession made me laugh a lot more than I should have.

The Falcons managed to loose again.

Still a shame I couldn't get time off to see them in London though.

And this week's help to the Packers is the ref's calling off side incorrectly on a blocked field goal so nice ten point swing gift from the zebra's. Steelers are rubbish but give them what they deserve.

As a mostly NCAA Football kind of guy, Justin Herbert's Chargers team is making the Offensive coordinator at Oregon during his senior season (where they had a hard time passing the ball) look like he needs a new job.

After watching him for four years in college, I didn't know he would be this effective in the pros.  I thought he had a shot at being good, but he is very fun to watch and very effective.

Yeah from what I can gather not many people saw him coming out this solid this quick and what little I see of him does look like he's going to do just fine in the pros.

Putting out a national call here...

Will anyone with a Detroit Lions' jersey please report to the team?  We need a coach and probably additional players, too.

lions are 4th and 4 down 7 in the 4th quarter and take a delay of game to optimize the punt

Dan Campbell said at the press conference they were going to eat kneecaps. Bro, you're getting fired anyway. They're all cowards.

The Lions have been cursed.

Not because of anything that happened in the distant past, or even in the 90s or early 00s.

The Lions have been righteously cursed for firing their only head coach with a winning record since the early 70s after four seasons for reasons that appeared Rule #4 at the time but have only looked worse since.
