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.

The biggest prob at Tampa is the oline. Parsons lived in the back field.

Vikes looked good.

Packers oline is banged up bad, but they did well in the run game, look for bigger run game which will give Rodgers more time with his receivers.

Cowboys… ha ha ha

Clint went close, but no cigar

Week 2 games (and a tough week for finding road winners)

1 Point on offer (plus a bonus point if you are on the money, flying solo)

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

I worry about the Packers oline in protecting Rodgers, reckon a run heavy game could really help.

Rams oline is banged up too, Falcons can get us, gotta pound the rock and get the ball to Higbee and Robinson. We can’t rely on Kupp every play.

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then

    LIVE IN THE MOMENT by Meggs

    The final home and away match of Season 7, sees the mighty Dees at Fortress Casey hosting the 16th placed West Coast.     A win assures the Dees of a Top-2 finish, with the ultimate placings dependent upon the previous night’s result between Brisbane and Collingwood and the relative percentages.   As our match is anticipated to be one-sided, interest may turn to monitoring the live ladder to see whether or not Melbourne has secured the minor premiership.     The Demons (Lions and Cro

    BOMBED by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne has all but assured itself of a top two finish to the (second) 2022 AFLW season after crushing Essendon by 41 points on Sunday. It now holds a four point lead over third placed Adelaide along with a handy percentage advantage with one round remaining before the finals. The Demons opened kicking with the advantage of the squally wind that often prevails at Casey Fields and for the third week in a row, they kept their opponents scoreless in the opening term.
