Denver has looked surprisingly good so far. I assumed they'd still have a top D, but I guess Trevor is starting to come into his own in his second year as the starter. I had the Broncos being an 8-8 team, but they could prove to be far more competitive.

I could totally see this division putting 3 teams in the post-season. The south and east will certainly only have one each, and the north only has two possible contenders, and I'm not sold on Baltimore.

Yeah the Donks looked good.. or maybe the Cowboys were just overhyped? Hard to tell. Chargers should have beat them week 1.

Chiefs look solid and I'll be rooting them in all but 2 games due to fantasy. Their players have me 2-0 in all three leagues! WOOHOO.

I could see both wildcards coming out of the West again. But that'll depends how the Chargers do, I can absolutely see them spoiling a few games. They're good, they're just cursed.

Yeah, I don't know what wizard Spanos pissed off, but they're definitely cursed. Not Browns-level cursed, but they definitely don't get any balls bouncing their way... which is a shame, as I think Rivers is a better QB than he gets credit for.

It would not be shocking to see a Chiefs loss there next Sunday. Chargers refuse to roll over and play dead in AFC W games.

Yep, if things don't get straightened out on the disrespect front, I'll be skipping the one football game (the super bowl) I typically do watch this year. I won't watch any sport where extremely overpaid dancing monkeys complain about unfairness, and do so by disrespecting the country and the flag. Go play in the CFL or Europe (if that still exists) if you don't like it here, you incredible douches...

I've just ignored all of that.

At this point it seems like it's an attention seeking thing on both sides, nothing more.

Kaepernick wasn't kneeling to disrespect the flag or soldiers or anything else, it was (I guess) about police brutality.. during Obama.. or something. It didn't seem newsworthy then, but people got their panties in a twist about it anyway.

South Park (as usual) said it best:


NOW we have people using this crap for their own aims, including the POTUS.. so now people are doing it to protest the POTUS, protest military.. protest against the NFL because it's now about the military.. it's all just BS attention seeking crap.

So I ignore it and enjoy the on-field product like I always have (except that Raiders game, for fucks sake).

One of the best arguments I've heard (from a black man who's against the protesters) is, why not use your notoriety to make an effort to change actual issues. Why cry about something that statistically isn't an issue and instead stand up and tell the black community "Stop resisting! Stop killing each other! Stop abandoning your family! If you really think that the government put abortion clinics and drugs in the hood to eradicate black people, stop getting abortions and doing drugs! Stop breaking the law! Take responsibility for your own actions!" He said they should use their voice to make an actual difference.

But this isn't about the perceived issues at all. It's about division. The 3 most prominent athletes(?) that have been pushing this crap after Trump demonized the protest method all campaigned for Hill. What a coinkidink!

Divide! Divide! Divide! They are pushing this political crap in every facet of our lives now. You can't get away from it even if you want to, and that's the intention. I guess you could completely disconnect and go live in the woods?

Just wondering. Someone's introducing a bill out of outrage for the unpatriotic behavior that removes the tax exempt status of the NFL.

The individual clubs waived their tax exemption, only the league office has tax exemption. How does the league office generate revenue for it to be taxed? That revenue is generated by the clubs who pay their taxes already. Just wondering how that works within that model.

Or is this just the usual flag humping for political points with a mean bill that does nothing?

Well, it was a bill signed into law in 1967 for all pro sports. Don't understand it either. Football is religion.

I thought about that. When it's distributed to the clubs, is that revenue not taxable with what else they bring in?

What the hell is happening???

Quote:
Through five weeks of the season, the Kansas City Chiefs have the best offense in all of football. Andy Reid and company are averaging 32.8 points per contest thus far. Mind you, this is following the loss of Doug Pederson, Jamaal Charles and Jeremy Maclin. Reid’s reinvented himself as a play caller in 2017 and his play design has been impressing football analysts across the league.

The Chiefs have now scored 42 points TWICE in primetime road games. Kansas City is a Top 10 team in every meaning offensive category — 2nd in total yards (414.2 per game), 10th in passing yards (258 per game) and 2nd in rushing offense (156.2 per game). There’s some thought that he finally has the offensive pieces necessary to become one of football’s top offenses, but his creativity in 2017 has been something to behold.

*something something fucking Charcandrick West*

Yeah they've been good for sure, and hardly any turnovers to boot.

Wonder if the injury bug will eventually catch up to them?

Their only turnover was the very first offensive play of the season when Hunt coughed it up inside the 20 and the whole world thought the Patriots had won the game 5 minutes into it.

With 8 starters out including both guards, center, wr, te, k, s & lb, I agree. Freaks me out and the whole city is waiting for the injuries to have an effect, but the Chief’s offense just keeps chugging along. At this point, as long as Alex “Peyton Brady” Smith is on the field, I’m not sure it matters who else is.

As you should for when Alex Smith shows back up and the Chiefs passing game goes back down to 180 yds on 42 check down throws. I hope Alex “Peyton Brady” Smith sticks around long enough for the Chiefs to trade his ass for a first rounder to recover the Mahomes picks.

I love the bulk of the chiefs' roster, but believing in Alex Smith is the path to ruin. He'll get you excited, and in Jan when it counts, he'll go full-turtle. Mark my words. He's the best second tier QB you'll never win a championship with. For your sake, I hope mahomes gets his shot before this window closes.

Well that was a hell of a game.

I kept switching back and forth between the Raiders/Chiefs and Dodgers, and once the Dodgers clenched the Series berth I put on the footieball game full time.. and OH MY GOD.

That had to be the craziest ending(s) to a football game I've ever seen.


Crazy.
