Cowboys stinking the joint out

As are the Packers

The Vikings are way better and the Bears could be very competitive as well

Devante Adams is already being missed (big time) and the other WR's aren't much chop (running game average as well)

Could be a long season for the both of us, Betters!!

Saints, Ravens, Broncos 

Looks like you are the only one still alive, Clint

Broncos get up and you pick up 2 points with an added bonus point for going solo

Good luck!

The Oline looks as porous af. Dak spent a lot of the day on his backside

And the dumb penalties continued unabated

Not a very bright start at all

Early takeaways ...

Brady is as good as ever (he's never lost to the Cowboys) Tampa are a very good team especially with TB12 at the helm

Mahomes stunning at Arizona (5 x TD's & no Int) KC are back

The Bears might be alright.  As too, the Vikings who look ready to make a run to the playoffs

49ers might be in the bracket as the Cowboys & Packers in the NFC.  Rams slow out of the blocks as well.  Early doors though and it's only week 1

Ravens & Chargers start well and get it done.  Miami as well with a good win over the Pats

Eagles, Commanders, Browns & Saints made hard work of it but a win is a win

Patriots struggled but the Bills look the team to beat even at this early stage

And the highly favoured Colts couldn't get it done at Houston

Is it too late for me to change for the Eagles in the NFC East, Dak's injury just about dooms the Cowboys. Liking the Vikings in the NFC north too but let's see what Rodgers can do with these young receivers with more time. Oh and Bucs to win the NFC looks likely but I'm still a bit worried about Brady.

Bears and Texans were tipped to be the worst 2 teams in the NFL and I really think both teams are going to be too well coached and organised for that to be the case. They won't be good, they lack talent and have limited offenses, but Lovie Smith got elevated in Houston just do a solid job with a roster that's slowly trending the right way.

And whilst the national media have crapped all over the Bears for not giving Fields enough blocking and weapons the word out of the Bears from anyone who's seen them train or play so far has been that they're really professional and organised. Fields looks a long way off consistently running a seamless offense, especially one this devoid of talent. But what he can do is make huge plays. The Bears will try to stay in games for as long as possible before Fields makes a couple of huge throws and wins them. That won't beat the elite teams but it's not a terrible recipe against the lesser sides.

Well we're not playing for a sheep station but the answer isn't yes! haha

On Sportscenter this arvo Tim Hasselbeck was talking about Dallas getting another QB in for the short term (as an immediate starter) A particular player who was familiar with their set plays

Dak could be out for 2 or 3 weeks minimum and it's his throwing hand with that broken thumb (I believe)

Don't know a lot about Fields but all that sounds ok anyway.  I'd wish you good luck but we're divisional rivals!  And the rivalry is fierce

The Divisional system especially in the NFL is fantastic.  8 different leagues within 2 conferences works a treat

As for Lovie Smith, not surprised he got another chance.  They like giving 2nd & 3rd chances in American sports and he did win 3 divisional titles at the Bears

He made the plays when they counted. His cross field pass to an open Dante Pettis was not the easiest to make but he set himself well and pulled it off. Turning point in the game.

Credit to the Bears, they have some great young prospects on D and I'm a big fan of Roquan Smith. Some things are in certain teams DNA and forcing turnovers has always been in Chicago's.

SNF this week is Chicago @ Green Bay

Oldest rivalry in the sport with 203 meetings.  Packers hold a slight advantage with 103 wins vs Bears 96 wins (along with 6 ties)

MNF has 2 games this week and both could be keenly contested ... Titans @ Bills along with Vikings @ Eagles

The two 7Mate games on Monday morning are decent too

3.00am Bucs @ Saints

6.25am Arizona @ Las Vegas Raiders

    CONSISTENCY by The Oracle

    "I think we have got a team that can win a premiership, and if we get in this year, I don't think there is a team that is going to want to play us. This year is not a write-off, I don't concede that. Not at all." — Collingwood President Jeff Browne. I love this sort of optimism from the Magpie President after his club’s eleven goal defeat at the hands of the fast rising Hawks. It’s consistent with the fighting spirit of the club that won last year’s flag.  I only wish I could say the s

    FEARS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s worst fears about the absence of Max Gawn were realised when it received a shellacking from Fremantle’s ruckmen Sean Darcy and Luke Jackson who dominated the hit out tally in their game at Optus Stadium on Sunday by a massive 47 to 19. As a result, the 50-point deficit at the end of the game proved to be a loss that was long foreseen that was two years in the making and demonstrated a complete lack of hindsight and planning from the club. To add insult to injury, Jackson was a D

    RAIN CHECK by Whispering Jack

    The Frankston Dolphins broke a run of six straight losses against their neighbours, the Casey Demons and kept their hopes for a long-awaited return to the VFL finals alive with a 27 point victory over at Kinetic Stadium. Casey was welcomed to the Peninsula by grey skies, heavy rain and angry seas with threatening white-capped waves whipped up by gale force winds. After a slow start in the opening term when they failed to take advantage of the breeze, it appeared that the Demons had decided

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    DEMONLAND - Good evening, Demon fans and welcome back to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast ... before we took that last phone call from a Demonlander, we were discussing how the club overcame it’s midseason slump, the season-ending injury to Christian Petracca and the loss for a brief period of skipper Max Gawn due to a  crack to the base of his right fibula, to slowly surge up the ladder turning our detractors into believers and how it ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta
