Football Open Thread

By

The Giants (@ Redskins) and Jets (vs. Cowboys) are playing later today (4pm and 8pm ET, respectively), but use this thread to talk about all the day’s football action.

    The Green Bay Packers are the team to beat and it’s not even close. Best QB, best receivers, top defense. Ted Thompson has constructed a team that has more depth than any other team and that was displayed last season. The Packers won’t be stopped by any defense in the league.

    Eagles are overrated. Under/over with games til a Vick injury?

      2.5
      I have the Eagles going 8-8 and missing the playoffs. Their hype is just as bad if not worse than what the Phillies and Red Sox were getting in Spring Training.

      • Craig

        Wel the Phillies have backed it up….barring an NLDS loss

        • http://bleedingyankeeblue.com Jesse

          They haven’t won the shiny gold trophy like a lot of the experts said they would yet.

            Kinda hard to do in early September

            • http://bleedingyankeeblue.com Jesse

              Really? Great observation.
              Because everyone told me they’ve won it already.

      No more overrated than the jets were last year.

  • Karl Krawfid

    Just got back from seeing the first 2 games in Anaheim.

    Yankees only scored 1 run :(

    • http://bleedingyankeeblue.com Jesse

      But you got to see Jesus hit a BOMB off Weaver.

      • Karl Krawfid

        Hell yeah everyone was going crazy.

        And when Jorge replaced Martin.

        Yankees just look tired. I still think Joe should have rested everyone in Baltimore.

  • SDM

    Good to see the Bears o-line is in midseason form….Cutler been sacked 3 times and the 2nd quarter isn’t even half over

  • Cy Pettitte

    Lestah gave up 3 runs already in the 1st, TB really making this interesting.

    • http://bleedingyankeeblue.com Jesse

      I predicted a Rays sweep and a 3.5 lead at the end of the week. I’m looking like a genius so far!

      • Cy Pettitte

        I think Yanks, Angels, Tigers, Rays is very possible in the playoffs

        • Freddy Garcia’s 86 mph Heat

          A Rays-Angles ALDS would be awesome. The 2 best AL pitching staffs head to head.

    • Cy Pettitte

      Lestah 2 innings 70 pitches. wow.

      • LiterallyFigurative

        And you thought CC was inefficient…

  • Brian S.

    I took Chris Johnson with the second overall pick in my fantasy draft and he has zero points. I see he got his money and now he does not give a shit. What a douchebag.

    • LiterallyFigurative

      You forgot something VERY important.

      His team is horrible, noone fears the passing game, and his O-line is blah. Short of him going Barry Sanders, he’s going to struggle.

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike Axisa

    Wow, the Colts are going to be awful this year.

    • Pat D

      Their strategy: be awful so that they can draft Peyton’s successor in April.

      Worked wonders for the Spurs when David Robinson missed that one entire year.

  • Pat D

    Giants need to find a 3rd dependable receiver pretty fucking quick.

    • Adam B

      and a new coaching staff, they have the same problems every year and every game and they never adjust. WR’s and Tight ends wide open in the middle of the field, special teams that couldn’t qualify for the special olympics, they call off tackle on 2 straight short yardage situations, it never ends.
