I'm fairly certain his offense at LSU was better than this trash.

Burrow with a loss but was pretty good ... 3 TD, 317 yards, and a rating of 90.7.

Building through the lines isn't sexy, but it is necessary.

If Cinci wants to maximize Burrow's rookie contract window, they need to spend this offseason focused to an almost unhealthy degree on improving that O-Line.

As for Cleveland, you would think that coming from that Oklahoma system, Baker would be a spread QB. But he really seems to flourish in heavy sets with a run game and lots of play action.

And, good for him, he finally seems to have a coach who understands football and can see that.

Were we a year too early in predicting a Browns breakout?

Any hope for the Browns breaking out can only end in disappointment.

But lets be real, this game will have affect the race for the first draft pick than the race for the playoffs.

More likely is that the Browns played a really good team and then a really bad team.

Juan Castillo has worked miracles with the Bears line. Also, Harry Hiestand is terrible.

49ers had Bosa and Solomon Thomas, their two best defensive players, carted off the field on consecutive plays. So much for positive regression on injuries.

The Cowboys look really bad. They fumbled four times and lost three in the first quarter.

Mitch Trubisky and Josh Allen are a combined 27-38 for 396 yards and 4tds.

The 2020 craziness doesn't stop.

Bosa got carted off, which doesn't sound good.

Bosa and Solomon Thomas were carted off. Garoppolo had like 100 yards and 2 TDs post-injury, they're holding him out of the second half after letting him limp around for a while. No idea what's wrong with Mostert, he looked fine.

I just want to remind everybody that Matt Patricia was brought in to DET specifically because Caldwell couldn't get the Lions over the hump of 9 wins a year. Also, he is still operating under a 'win now mandate' that is like 9 months old.

The Falcons give up a score, but stop the two point conversion keeping it a nine point game. Even though the Falcons defense gave up the td, they are at least still playing aggressive. They didn't move to the soft zone like they have most of Dan Quinn's tenure. That made the drive tick a lot of time off, and made a big difference.

It's almost like every single player on the Falcons was mesmerized by how slow the Cowboys onside kick moved.

Quinn should be fired before he gets on the plane. He should just be left in Dallas at this point.

At the very least there needs to be a special teams coordinator opening in Atlanta on Monday. It's basically impossible to recover an onside kick in 2020, let alone like that.

Likely ACL for Bosa and Jimmy out next week.

At this point, just start a full B-team next week back on the same shit turf and keep everyone who is hobbled out like Kittle and Ford.

Inexcusable, but I think what happened was it was moving so slow no one thought it would even go 10 yards, so instead of chancing a fumble by touching it, they were hoping a Cowboy would touch it first or it wouldn't even make it to the line. That's my best guess.

Sure, but even in that case you cannot allow a Cowboys player to be first to it. Just standing around and watching whether you think it's going 3 yards, 6 or 10 is just bad coaching and preparation.

The fact that the onside kick worked will obscure that it was kind of a bad onside kick strategy.

I get that, but let's say the ball isn't going more than 7 yards and you jump on it at 5 yards, only to have it squeeze out and the other team falls on it? That's what looked like the thought process. I don't know how that ball kept going, I yelled immediately that it wasn't even going to get to the 40 how terrible was that kick.

The problem is not blocking the Cowboys player. It reminds me of the Brandon Bostick play that cost the Packers a Superbowl trip. He was making a play on the ball when his job was to block the opponent so others could make a play. There was nothing stopping the Falcons from knocking the Cowboys player on his ass while that ball was rolling.

Yup, this is the point. If you donít think itís going 10 great, but for the love of god donít stand and let a Cowboys player get to it if it does.

Not that we should use my body as a guide posts for professional athletes, but the only time I ever pulled a chest muscle I did it doing basic stretching.

Not because they're old, but because they don't care about baseball, probably.

So my beloved Cards are 2-0 now, and I've not seen a single live play. Going to go to Spectrum this week hopefully to remedy that and get RedZone back.
