    Yeah, i love to see a little bit of interesting thinking, the Ravens might have confused things, and they save a timeout... Wish the Broncos had anything close to as good a special team unit.

    If he got a little more height or a little less distance on it, it would have been a 50-50 ball...i can see other teams trying to adopt the technique going forward

    It would have been hilarious if the Bills DB ran into his own endzone for a safety on that INT

    Chiefs win

    The Ravens run game worked very well but the super aggressive strategy was to try long bombs, 4th down attempts and 2 point conversions.

    A more conservative game plan may have worked, oh well

    Silly penalties cost the Ravens.

    Wouldn't be surprised to see those two meet again in the playoffs. The Ravens gave it a go, and i expect them to improve as the year progresses.

    Pretty good start to the Daniel Jones era with the Giants.

    Pretty amazing stat about the Buccs defence, 7 red one trips from opponents, 0 touchdowns. Didn't realise they were playing so tough.


  • Registered Users Posts: 37,688 ✭✭✭✭ Itssoeasy


    Injuries never help a team and the eagles had a few big injuries but even still we shouldn’t be losing to the bloody Detroit lions. Painful to watch at times.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,861 ✭✭✭ Foxtrol


    Nervy start by the 49ers, 1 int and one fumble that they recovered. Steelers looked to be trying to ease Rudolph into the game or they're planning on being very passive.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,861 ✭✭✭ Foxtrol


    49ers offense doing a great job moving the ball and then another turnover, up to four turnovers and another one recovered. A mix of great defense and poor Steelers offense the only reason this hasnt gotten out of hand, only 6-0.

    Pathetic tackling from Seattle to give up a 29yds TD

    Steelers converted their fourth 3rd down of the season. Woo! They made it over halfway...

    The Chargers play in a 27,000 seat stadium and still there are empty seats everywhere


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,861 ✭✭✭ Foxtrol


    Mental 1st half to only be 6-3

    49ers 206 yards, 6.5 yards per play, 11 first downs, 4 turnovers
    Steelers 76 yards and 2.6 yards per play, 5 first downs, 0 turnovers

    Hopefully the more likely thing is that the turnovers stop than the Steelers offense suddenly gets itself together

    Yep because the majority of the fans they had for all those years are in San Diego not Los Angeles.There was a report that the chargers aren’t ponying up the cash for the new stadium.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,054 ✭✭✭ The_Honeybadger


    Epically pathetic offensive performance from the Steelers. Can’t run, can’t pass, O-Line is a sieve.

    Defence doing great considering but they’ll get gassed now and it could be a blowout

    And most of the people who are there are cheering for the other team.

    Daniel Jones is giving himself a chance to get his first win in his first start.


  • Registered Users Posts: 37,688 ✭✭✭✭ Itssoeasy


    TD Giants. As much as it pains me to say it the Giants have something going with Daniel Jones.

    I asked if a drop-kick like that was legal in a game thread last year. Don't know how other teams haven't thought of it tbh as it could easily create a 50/50 ball.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,861 ✭✭✭ Foxtrol

    Two big plays. Looked like Rudolph can throw when he gets the opportunity. He should be given the chance more but 49ers defense is severely underrated at this point. That game is one that 49ers would have lost the last 2 seasons

    Doubly so, as the Fair Catch call stopped the clock, meaning they didn't burn a TO

    Pats tried it with Ebner in that abortive loss to the Eagles in 2015. Shame they've not gone back to it.

    Rugby kickers should be the future for NFL kickers. Could easily dual hat as Punters/ Kickers, and used to handling pressure kicks

    Steelers can’t move the chains. We had a great O-Line in recent seasons but they are getting old and their position coach went to Denver. The pocket was collapsing on Rudolph all night and we have zero run game to bail him out. SF’s sloppiness kept the Steelers in the game. Going to be a long season.

    SF pass rush was excellent and they have some really good weapons on offence. Can’t imagine they’ll give up the football five times again. Definitely playoff contenders.

    Some Scottish lad who was rugby mad as a youngster is playing as kicker for someone. Was article bout him in the BBC

    Be comical to see Sexton or Farrell in NFL taking 50 seconds to make a kick at goal, whilst gurning and throwing grass in the air to check the wind.

    On the drop-kick thing, couldn't help but feel it'll be outlawed soon enough if everyone starts doing in for on-side kicks. It's probably the sort of clash they want to avoid.

    Be such a cushy job for them. Little physical stress, could play for years, earning more than they do as rugby players
