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

 

Yep, one of the oldest and fierce rivalries around. You could make an argument for Cowboys and Eagles being the biggest divisional rivalry but there's something about games with the conerstone NFL franchises and I love the history with this one. Some great stories about how Lombardi was always paranoid about Hallas having spies at Packers practices!

Chargers v Chiefs was a cracker, it was all about the D taking the chances, KC pick Herbert on the 1yrd line and run it back 99, chargers drop 2 very good int and missed a few others. 
cracking game tho.

Herberts ribs are either broken or bad,t bruised and he still threw a dart down field.

That was a classic football game. Hope Herbert isn't too bad that was a hell of a performance.

Micah Parsons is a star.

Bengals look super poor up front, Rams tried to blow a big lead, Ramsey came up big at the end. Browns, Ravens and Raiders did blow big leads!!!

Rodgers still owns Chicago but they looked better running the ball well.

Miami look strong. But still need to maintain it.

 I would not be paying Lamar Jackson what he thinks he deserves. I don’t think he will ever deliver a SB to the Ravens.

There is steam coming out of my ears.

For the 3rd time in 4 years one of our marquee players has succumb to a season ending injury: Trey Lance has broken a fibula and had possible ligament damage.

Yes you do these plays when the game is there to be won but this was 2nd and 8 in the second quarter with a running game that was already buzzing! We'd run him in a series of QB draw plays but this one was more of a zone read and the inuwas horrific.

As a Niners fan it is hard not to be angry at Kyle Shanahan right now. Last week and this week calling plays that invloved Lance running between the tackles through the middle and potentially getting hurt. Well he did and Shanahan took no responsiblity whatsoever in his presser. We traded 3 picks to get this guy and decided to use him as a FB, nice job! Couldn't help but think of RG3 in Washington where both Mike and Kyle were involved in calling that play 10 years ago. 

Plus side is the Jimmy G comes in and we know he can win you games. Don't think he's quite good enough to win or even get us to a Superbowl this year but playoffs are not a lost cause. Still damn frustrating, Lance missed so much football in College from Covid, hardly played last year and now loses another season.

Bills smash the Titans and the Eagles dominate the Vikings (Where's Dappa?)

Packers win but we've got holes to fill.  Jones was good but he needs to shine against a team like Tampa (good luck!) Dillon ok as well so the running game looks better a year on

Run defence still wobbly (allowed 180 yards) Pass defence better but we're at the Bucs next Sunday (late game) Brady vs Rodgers

Don't know what to make of the Bears.  Their D just allowed too many yards but the passing game wasn't there.  Still, Fields can get better with more games under his belt

Bucs win well at the Saints (held them to 10 points) ... Tampa look the team to beat in the NFC

Jags shut out the Colts!  Clint can tell us what happened as I've only seen brief highlights

Rams win against a fast finishing Atlanta

Former Ram, Jared Goff threw 4 TD's to get Detroit up over the Washington Commanders!

49ers get it done against the Seahawks.  The NFC West could be a 3 horse race although the Rams still favs

Bills look the team to beat in the AFC although KC will be thereabouts

Giants win again but the Eagles loom large in the NFC East.  Dallas win an important game with the QB (Cooper Rush) having a big game.  Cowboys aren't out of it

Miami win a barnburner at the Ravens.  Dolphins are 2 & 0 and only 6 of the 32 teams are undefeated after week 2

As for the tipping comp ... we are all still in the barriers!!

Rams lose another lineman for the season, and CB Troy Hill is now on IR, so misses at least 4. Our oline is worst in the league and now has lost three from it. This is not good, we couldn’t run it well prior to these injuries. 
we did have success using Skrownek (sp) as a full back… I mean a WR as a full back… and it worked… weird.

Some good games this week - especially the evening matches & the late Sunday games

Tipping a bit easier this week but be aware of a trap game or 2

2 points up for grabs this week plus a bonus point on offer if you go it alone

    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.
