F' this game, it's time for more of the same.

Turn out the light's the party's over indeed...

I feel like my Dolphins will finally be a world-beater this year, and then in the middle of the Super Bowl, an asteroid will land in the middle of the field.

Breaking: NFL and NFLPA reached agreement on an 11-game suspension for Browns QB Deshaun Watson, per sources. The settlement also includes a fine of $5 million that will go to charity. Deal still is not signed but it is agreed to. pic.twitter.com/2dFvcePL9k

Still should be a full season, but I guess Watson coming back to a 3-8 Browns team is kinda funny

i don't understand why any teams are having 'joint practices', let alone the two teams that faced each other in the super bowl

mookieproof, Thursday, 25 August 2022 21:59 (one month ago) link

It is an old football tradition. My high school would usually do a joint scrimmage one with another team in the county (usually one we did not play) before the season started.

Then again, practice was still pretty much full on and in full pads except Thursday walk through before the JV game.

earlnash, Sunday, 28 August 2022 04:34 (one month ago) link

I kinda like not following any football (or sports in general) these days, I get surprised. Heck I did not know the Steelers took a guy from Pitt in the first round. I kinda remember from highlights he was pretty good, but I did not know they took him in the first round.

I guess it comes around they did not want to screw up like they did with Marino back in the bronze age. Mark Malone my a$$.

two weeks pass...

My boys are up 17 idk what to do with this

Lmao Indy and Houston tied

Cincy and Pitt probably about to

Mr Haaland's Opus (Neanderthal), Sunday, 11 September 2022 20:38 (three weeks ago) link

lol bungles

also joe burrow is gonna die if he continues to get hit that many times

mookieproof, Sunday, 11 September 2022 20:55 (three weeks ago) link

Steelers and Bengals was a pretty fugly game. Pittsburgh may have finally won it, but I got a feeling Watt and Harris are pretty hurt. Mitch is still Mitch.

earlnash, Sunday, 11 September 2022 21:56 (three weeks ago) link

oh, the steelers are not ~good~

which is even more reason to enjoy them beating the afc champs on the road

mookieproof, Sunday, 11 September 2022 22:38 (three weeks ago) link

when people have pointed out Tua was a bit sloppy today (which he was, admittedly) as a pre-text to shit on him, I point them to Rodgers and Burrows's games today.

Rodgers's was worse, I think, because a few of Burrows's turnovers were due to his o-line rapid collapsing, whereas all Aaron did was check down all game and held onto the ball way too long.

Rodgers still plays at a high level but I think he's lost what made him a cut above the league around the time he was winning the Super Bowl, like he shows up when he feels like it. must be that 'cleanse'.

Mr Haaland's Opus (Neanderthal), Monday, 12 September 2022 02:03 (three weeks ago) link

(not to take away from Minnesota, whose defense was inspired af today)

Mr Haaland's Opus (Neanderthal), Monday, 12 September 2022 02:03 (three weeks ago) link

it's also his first game with several of those receivers, one of whom dropped a perfectly thrown TD pass on the first offensive snap

frogbs, Monday, 12 September 2022 02:20 (three weeks ago) link

yeah that drop was inexcusable

Mr Haaland's Opus (Neanderthal), Monday, 12 September 2022 02:32 (three weeks ago) link

Mike McCarthy trying to accelerate his firing, apparently

Mr Haaland's Opus (Neanderthal), Monday, 12 September 2022 02:32 (three weeks ago) link

do the Cowboys always commit 8-10 completely unnecessary penalties or do they just do this during nationally televised games

frogbs, Monday, 12 September 2022 02:37 (three weeks ago) link

it's the thing fans were angry at McCarthy for last year, so imagine coming into the first game of the new season and showing nothing's improved

Mr Haaland's Opus (Neanderthal), Monday, 12 September 2022 02:43 (three weeks ago) link

this is a pretty embarrassing showing for Dallas

Mr Haaland's Opus (Neanderthal), Monday, 12 September 2022 02:55 (three weeks ago) link

Tampa Bay isn't even exactly firing on all cylinders either (which isn't shocking for Week 1), and yet the gulf between the two are still so wide

Mr Haaland's Opus (Neanderthal), Monday, 12 September 2022 02:56 (three weeks ago) link

Dak out with thumb injury, going into tent.

Cooper Rush playing QB.

it's nuts that they're still taking bets on Bovada for the Bucs to win, straight up, at -50000. the easiest money you'd ever win...even though it would be peanuts unless you put down like a quarter of a million lol

oh they probably do

hard to tell how good he really is, this is garbage time and the Bucs really dgaf anymore

what's happening to Denver at the goal line reminds me a lot of what happens in Madden when the game decides ahead of time that the CPU is gonna win

what on earth was Denver trying to do there

Some of the worst head coaching I've ever seen

dead queen's reich (Neanderthal), Tuesday, 13 September 2022 03:13 (three weeks ago) link

A 64 yard FG vs picking up a 4th and 5 with plenty of time and three timeouts.

Ffs Russell coulda scrambled for it

dead queen's reich (Neanderthal), Tuesday, 13 September 2022 03:14 (three weeks ago) link

Denver trying to smother that Russell Wilson magic in the crib

frogbs, Tuesday, 13 September 2022 03:19 (three weeks ago) link

love him using those last two timeouts just in case geno fumbles the kneel-down

mookieproof, Tuesday, 13 September 2022 03:24 (three weeks ago) link

I’d say that I’m flabbergasted at the clock mismanagement at the end of that game, but it happens so often anymore that I’m just kind of numb to it. Why are NFL teams so bad at this???

Mr. Snrub, Tuesday, 13 September 2022 03:25 (three weeks ago) link

i don’t think it was clock mismanagement— if you honestly believe having your kicker make the second-longest kick in nfl history is more likely than russell wilson picking up five yards, then letting the clock wind down to 20 seconds is the right move. it’s the first part that’s the problem

mookieproof, Tuesday, 13 September 2022 03:32 (three weeks ago) link

No, no, this wasn't mismanagement, this shit was by design. Hackett seemed to think this was a brilliant plan, sneaking McManus onto the field after the timeout and freaking Carroll the fuck out for a moment.

A head coach of an NFL team thought a kick whose length is two yards off of the all time record had better odds than picking up five yards with a $242 million dollar QB has a job.

I had to double check to make sure the game wasn't being played in Denver

frogbs, Tuesday, 13 September 2022 03:42 (three weeks ago) link

Broncos must have been using the Andy Reid Clock Management Manual.

earlnash, Wednesday, 14 September 2022 06:05 (three weeks ago) link

Dolphins/Ravens and Dolphins/Bills were both obviously the interesting match up going into the past two weeks and neither was on national broadcasts.

It is pretty much impossible to tell though who is really that good this early in the season.

Can't say I saw Indy beating KC today.

earlnash, Monday, 26 September 2022 02:46 (one week ago) link

This Broncos 49ers game is about as entertaining as watching Class A baseball where half the team is sidelinedvwith dysentery

Cannot remember the last time Russell Wilson looked this bad

upset with myself cuz I tried to bet the under thinking the game would go exactly like it did but wound up misclicking and taking the over instead. figured I'd let it ride cuz it was destiny. oh well. that game was awful.

frogbs, Monday, 26 September 2022 14:58 (one week ago) link

nobody is afraid of the Broncos. i don't care how good their defense is.

more harmful call to the Giants as the Cowboys still got 3 points on their drive, this might have kneecapped the Giants drive

stank viola (Neanderthal), Tuesday, 27 September 2022 01:35 (one week ago) link

this game might just be worse than the 49ers-Broncos one

another makeup call there, clearly didn't have the first down

props to the Cowboys for getting the line and getting the next play off before it could be challenged. McCarthy's Packers sure as hell could never do that

In honor of Raiders week, I present a 🧵 about my Favorite Hurricane Josh McDaniels Stories:
1. After trading away the young nucleus of our offense including Jay Cutler, Josh said to the entire team “Fellas don’t worry about the QB situation, I can turn a HS QB into an All Pro.”

mookieproof, Thursday, 29 September 2022 17:15 (six days ago) link

definitely seemed like a trend 10-15 years ago that teams would equate a "winning mentality" in a coach to "being as unforgiving an asshole as possible", which was funny because guys like Greg Schiano went 6-10 pretty much every year until they got fired. I wonder how much of that was because Bill Belichick came off that way.

frogbs, Thursday, 29 September 2022 17:48 (six days ago) link

The head coaches that do the best are the ones who hire great coordinators, sign the best players (if they have GM privileges) , doesn't fuck up clock management, and doesn't fuck another staff member's wife.

If Tua takes the field tonight, it's a massive step back for #concussion care in the NFL.

If he has a 2nd concussion that destroys his season or career, everyone involved will be sued & should lose their jobs, coaches included. We all saw it, even they must know this isn't right https://t.co/vxpaOif5rh

stank viola (Neanderthal), Friday, 30 September 2022 03:44 (five days ago) link

as someone who suffered a severe tbi, i just crumple inside watching that. there was a cadre of docs and therapists making sure i COULD NOT hit my head again for two months. i was belted into a wheelchair for five fucking weeks to make sure i could not risk a fall, my bed was zippered and fucking locked at night.

it is true our situations were not totally similar re extent of damage, but they were not fucking around at all with the risk of a second impact. how nfl could allow that is a fucking crime to me now. (documentary _the crash reel_ covers this issue and a thousand other issues very very well).

in concussion protocol.

well after a brief period of rare light in a Dolphins season, of course it's all going to return to the same ugliness that dogged us prior to season.

going back to soccer where the drama is much more petty and light

stank viola (Neanderthal), Friday, 30 September 2022 15:57 (five days ago) link

(and not actually *life-threatening* like the NFL)

stank viola (Neanderthal), Friday, 30 September 2022 15:57 (five days ago) link

Hmm. Honestly is it the protocol itself that's too lenient?

Speaking with @judybattista on @nflnetwork, NFL Chief Medical Officer Dr. Allen Sills says Tua Tagovailoa was checked for concussion symptoms every day since Sunday. Points out independent neuro expert had to clear him. Once review is done, full results will be released publicly.

Dolphins HC Mike McDaniel said Tua Tagovailoa sat next to him on the plane. They talked about how he was feeling for 15-20 mins then Tua pulled out his phone to watch MacGruber and they laughed together, per McDaniel.
