Which name is more Waaasciist?

Washington Redskins
Cleveland Browns

Blogger Were-Puppy October 02, 2016 11:42 AM  

I don't know anything about the Browns, hopefully the Skins can take them :P

Question
Linebacker Ryan Kerrigan recording 1.0 sack
--

How do they divvy up sacks? What if there are 3 guys in on a sack?

> How do they divvy up sacks? What if there are 3 guys in on a sack?

If there are two people in on the sack, each one is given credit for a half. If there are three or more, I believe it's credited as a "team" sack.

Any Falcon fans out there? vs Carolina, should be a good one!

Blogger jwshell October 02, 2016 12:30 PM  

I think they're the Cleveland Browns because they are named after their founder, Paul Brown

Hopefully the Wilsonbot3000 makes it through the Jet's game without any further dents. It's out of Warrantee.

Go Hawks.

Everyone seems to hate the Thursday Night games. NFL On Thursday Night is awesome. Ya know why? Because bad NFL is still better than The Midget Housewives of Wherever.

But you know what does suck?

The London game. There is no reason to have the NFL in England.

Blogger exfarmkid October 02, 2016 1:08 PM  

Getting psyched for game-time....forgot the Vikings/Giants game doesn't start until 8:30 PM EDT. Bah, humbug.

Of course, Vox lives in Italy.....

OT: Vox, the Twins might make it 59 wins today. That. Is. Embarrassing.

8. Nate: "There is no reason to have the NFL in England."

Thought the whole point was to remind the Brits that we're big, beefy, armored and nasty?

Notice which team it is every year, it's the Jags only sellout.

Especially right after a Viagra commercial.

And welcome back JFG.

Demarco Murray is really good.

"Notice which team it is every year, it's the Jags only sellout."

More of this.

Again.. look at the actual stats. The Jags sell more tickets than the Raiders. They sell more tickets than Cincy.. and Cincy has a freakin playoff team.

Anonymous VFM #6306 October 02, 2016 2:38 PM  

Titans going to pull one out over Wattless Houston? I think so. Texans are in trouble going forward, too. Brick Osweiler is who we thought he was...just not who he thought he was.

He is a poor man's Matt Cassel.

Blogger Nate October 02, 2016 2:40 PM  

Osweiler isn't an NFL starter. If he gets pressure he just falls apart.

he's a backup. A good back up. Assuming you have a very good O-line.

Blogger Nate October 02, 2016 2:41 PM  

The NFL isn't going to move the jags to london. They are going to add a team in London and add another team here.

Personally I think they should put that team in Alabama. there is a huge gap in their coverage.

Blogger YIH October 02, 2016 2:42 PM  

Why is the NFL Losing White Fans?
Pink, inappropriate ads, Krapernig, and the fact that like NASCAR, it isn't attracting younger fans. Just for starters.

Blogger Cinco October 02, 2016 2:58 PM  

Atlanta's WR's are amazing... even their mid tier guys are really solid.

Anonymous beerme October 02, 2016 3:57 PM  

Julio Jones... wow.

Anonymous Jack Amok October 02, 2016 3:57 PM

I think that just makes him an average starter. The NFL doesn't have enough QBs for everyone to have a good starter. If you don't have one of the elite guys, best thing you can do is get an Osweiler and put a good line in front of him.

But that doesn't mean you have to pay him $17M a year.

That was a surprise wasn't it? Although it also happened last year with Brady. It sounds like the Pats have some holes that Brady's return won't fill.

Red Zone network no commercials no halftime bs; it's like NFL crack

Blogger Jourdan October 02, 2016 5:08 PM  

Vox, I meant to thank you the first week for giving my old Los Angeles Rams a shout for wearing their old colors. It was so good to see the Rams back.

The NFL really needs to do something about team moving. Today I'm sure there are some guys my age in St. Louis watching St Louis vs St Louis in Arizona and just gut-punched about it.

Anonymous HoosierHillbilly October 02, 2016 5:10 PM  

Welp. Here you go rest of the AFC South. It appears that the Colts cannot even rise to the top of that scumbucket. Yours for the taking this year Nate.

Blogger TontoBubbaGoldstein October 02, 2016 5:47 PM  

Don't look now, but the Raiders are 3-1.

3-1!

Raiders 3-1, Rams 3-1, will both those other CA teams be 1-3?

I decided to join my brothers football pool. 8-6 i was in the games so far. I cant believe the Bills won 16-0 over Patriots what is this the early 90s

Blogger SemiSpook37 October 02, 2016 8:03 PM  

Today was a good day so far. Skins beat the Clowns after THREE consecutive turnovers by the Clowns in the 2nd half, two of which lead to 14 points, and Joe Flaccid proved once again he is not elite and lost to the Raiders, even if I hate Jack Del Rio with the passion of a thousand burning suns.

Hopefully the Steelers bounce back tonight against the Chefs, but Pedersen is a Reid acolyte, so it's going to be interesting.

Blogger JaimeInTexas October 02, 2016 8:51 PM  

Back from visiting family on the Miss. Coast.
Did not see or hear the Texans game. A win is a win.
We need another NFL team for the San Antonio - Austin area. London, WTF?

How do they have tailgate parties? They don't have any trucks.

I'm not sure, but if they take their tips from the kickball fans, they still manage to get thoroughly sloshed.
