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.

You'll never guess what happened!

No one gained any points in the tipping comp

Clint went close, but no cigar

Resume normal transmission

I'll post up the week 2 games tomorrow sometime but we've got a good game on Friday ... Chargers @ Chiefs

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

    The Demons head back on the road for their fifth interstate trip this season when they head up to Brisbane to take on the Lions under lights on Friday night at the Gabba. Who comes in and who goes out?

    The Demons almost blew a six goal lead and ultimately hung on to win by three points over the North Melbourne Kangaroos at the MCG and have temporarily jumped back into the Top 8.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    It's Game Day and it very well could be the last roll of the dice for the Demon's finals aspirations in 2024. A loss to the bottom side would be another embarrassing moment in a cursed year for the Dees whilst a win could be the spark they need to reignite the fire in the belly.

    THE HUNTER by The Oracle

    Something struck me as I sat on the couch watching the tragedy of North Melbourne’s attempt to beat Collingwood unfold on Sunday afternoon at the MCG.    It was three quarter time, the scoreboard had the Pies on 12.7.79, a respectable 63.16% in terms of goal kicking ratio. Meanwhile, the Roos’ 18.2.110 was off the charts at 90.00% shooting accuracy. I was thinking at the same time of Melbourne’s final score only six days before, a woeful 6.15.51 or 28.57% against Collingwood’s 14.5.89

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res

    PREGAME: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    After two disappointing back to back losses the Demons have the bye in Round 14 and then face perennial cellar dweller North Melbourne at the MCG on Saturday night in Round 15. Who comes in and who goes out?
