Game Thread: Game hub/RedZone Week 1
By - nfl_gamethread
Rodgers grows a manbun, starts looking like someone on the sex offender registry, gets engaged to an actress he just met… and his family was worried about Olivia Munn?!?
The loyal fans who had literal shit raining down on them in the stands was the perfect snapshot of what Snyder and this team has been doing to us for the last 20 years.
I feel this on a personal level. I was born 98' been a fan since because family. Its been pain.
I both hate and love the NFC West division. So hard.
Something I realize about the league right now is that it's not certain at all what's going to happen. The two Super Bowl teams were held to 1 score games; sure, the Browns were considered a viable Super Bowl contender, but the Cowboys weren't by most. And the 2 divisional championship teams lost, with the Packers getting completely obliterated. There isn't an obvious dynasty about to crush everyone effortlessly.
Well, if Godwin doesn't fumble there, the Bucs cover the spread and win by 9 (I think).
You can't tell too much from first games. I think Dallas prepared like it was the Super Bowl and they had Dak back.
With Dak, they are absolutely a playoff team.
Browns are just really good.
Titans game, packers, how the cowboys looked, Texans, and more like this week was way different than I expected
Alternatively, the two best teams in the league showed why they are because when the game is on the line they come out on top instead of making mistakes and falling apart.
Also Tampa was only in the playoffs due to a Wildcard spot and an average record. They lost to a Nick Foles Bears during the regular season last year. Its postseason Tampa thats crazy
The Chicago game changed on a blown call that lead to a bears TD and Vita Vea breaking his leg.
It was the most frustrating game for me all season by far
Week One is nearly in the books, so naturally what is your way to early knee jerk opinion?
The Eagles are going 13-3 and winning the Super Bowl
What about game 17?
You know, I completely forgot about it. 13-3-1 then
C A N C E L E D
Smith is a monster you guys got a good player
Well I'd say the AFC South and NFC North both had an interesting day
Laughs in NFC North failure.
Is it just me or are helmets coming off way too easy
Teddy’s Helmet is still coming off to this very day
Yeah I don't know what happened to his but it seemed like it came off every time he got tackled
thank god for that guy with the drill lol
Fitzys beard made his happen but I agree
I know it’s only the first game of the season, but we did not look good at all.
I think it’s time for giants fans to bust out the paper bags. We haven’t been good in a decade
I’ll go ahead and apologize to the country now that you’ll have to watch our two disasters face off this Thursday night.
But it could be so much worse. You have two Super Bowl victories against the best player of all time, as well as two others in recent history. I mean, I'm happy for a single Super Bowl victory two years prior to my birth, but look at teams like the Lions, Vikings, Falcons, Browns, Titans, Jags, Chargers, etc. You have no right to complain to those franchises.
We're so bad you forgot to lump us in with the losers.
Gotta head out it’s been a pleasure yall.
Hoping for a fun game tomorrow
Lmao at whoever said Goff was better than Stafford this Sunday
Everyone told me the gap between Goff and Stafford was a “slight” upgrade though?
Yea, Stafford is notably better than Goff but our secondary is so pitiful that I think we inflated how good he looked too lol
Rams looking fucking solid with Stafford and not Goff
Cooper Kupp is electric
Have the bears completed a pass that has been in the air more than 10 yards down field
Rams really have Matt Stafford…
Happy for him. He has a decent supporting cast along with a consistent and talented coach.
Applebees is just an even shittier chilli's
F in chat for the boys that played Aaron Rodgers
I had Jameis winston on the bench
I got tyrod Taylor on the bench…
F. Right there with you bud
That's my wife and I played her tonight lol. Won by 30
kupp was down
did they talk about that at breakfast?
Is Montgomery hurt?
Justin Fields "Fine... I'll do it myself"
Why is this game the sunday night one fucking bears suck!
That's a shit excuse and as fans why would we give a shit bout that
Just habit I know your telling facts but I'm just not not a fan of those teams or this game in particular all good
Seems like AWS NextGen Stats is always wrong.
it’s hilarious because as someone who also watches Formula 1, the AWS Tire Performance stats are always wrong too, seems like bad advertising lol
The only people who consider Applebee’s fancy have 3 teeth
And they went into Applebee’s with six teeth.
I was confused and thought the Chiefs replaced their kicker Butker with some guy named Barker because of Google search.
The Rams Fruit Roll Up numbers look so goofy
NBC really gonna give us a history of scoreboards instead of watching a game?
The game was dog shit though
First week of the season and I already have a least favorite commercial.
The one thing we can agree on
Tfw every team in the NFC west looks good
Yeah if I wanted food made in a microwave I'd just eat at home.
Ever since I started watching football, the Bears are the weirdest football team I’ve ever watched. The way they suck is absolutely strange and weird to describe. Every drive in Rams territory but only 7 points to show for it
More like pack it in, amirite haha
I’m sure Dick Butkus loves hanging out with his grandson who has a Tik Tok haircut and wears a goofy chain outside of his shirt lmao
Bears are an ***** to football
Yeah the Lions were holding Matt Stafford back
Man, part of what made the pregame and halftime was Rodney cuz he says the truth straight up, instead of fluffing players or looking to avoid negative comments.
Brees is gunna boring.
Miss the old PrimeTime crew, Bradshaw has a bit of it still in him, CBS staff is pretty much all about spinning things nicely.
Brees just retired, so he probably feels uncomfortable bad mouthing anyone right now since he's played with just about all these guys. You know he was gushing talking about the Saints but I can't blame him for that.
Not looking for badmouthing, just be honest, of someone sucks, he'll definitely know, but rarely anyone dares say something to that liking for fear of losing connections.
Him gushing over Saints though is nothing bad, can't fault him on that.
Giants could have had Herbert or Tua...
I mean Tua hasn't really done anything so far to be fair.
He beat the Patriots today, he'd literally be a perfect fit
Did you watch him? He was average at best.
He's literally Eli 2.0
He turns the ball over a lot less
rams uniforms look like cheap Halloween costumes
Detroit won the QB trade don't @ me
Goff did exactly what Stafford always did, get beat up with a huge deficit, then rack up yards and points during garbage time.
Maybe, Goff def looked good today but the run was where they were really killing it. The pass didn't really click until until the niners lost that CB of there's and pulled a couple starters.
But I agree so far Goff does look better.
The whole team looked better... coaching culture really does matter.
Right but that has nothing to do with the trade
Yes, almost as arbitrary as saying someone won a trade after a one-game sample.
Which I didn't do... (Literally said "maybe" and that we don't have enough info yet in my parent comment)
And it's less about deciding who won the trade after one game and more just me pointing out the coaching staff will never have anything to do with who won the trade. At least talking about QBs makes sense
Even 16 weeks from now we can't decide who won the trade based on how good the coaching staff is this year, that doesn't make any sense. We'll know if Stafford or Goff did better.
If one teams does amazingly better because of coaching but the QB washes out that better team would still lose the trade.
There's nothing arbitrary about using the literal people traded as a metric for how the trade went. Being too early to tell doesn't make it arbitrary, using a criteria that has nothing to do with the trade does.
Defense is like a fine wine, but where are those that would share in the memory....
corolla apex has to be one of the biggest sucker deals going
Rodney Harrison is out of SNF?
all that stafford hoopla and they're only up 6 at the half
That dpi no call and that tip for pick in end zone. One of those doesn’t happen and bears would be up by 1
Aaron donald is washed up missed an easy tackle
bro it’s 1 play
i don't understand why the NFL would schedule this game for prime time instead the browns v chiefs
or even seahawks v colts or steelers v bills
There's a cap on the number of primetime games and I'm sure the Chiefs are maxed out. Plus Chicago is apparently a big market (or so they say)
They're showcasing that LA box, that's the entire purpose of having them in that slot.
Just like the Raiders being on MNF tomorrow.
Hope the Ravens slaughter Chucky tomorrow.
Just wait till you watch the barn burner that's gonna be WFT vs. NYG on Thursday lolol.
New stadium that will also host the super bowl.
do people care about that stuff?
The owner that dropped a fat bill on the stadium sure does. I bet NFL loves to show off their new stadium in prime time
Falcons will always be a poverty franchise until the fans stop making every excuse in the book for Matt “needs everything to be perfect around him to produce” Ryan. Please just move on and rebuild, damn
Nah...that franchise is still hungover from the Pats incredible comeback against them in the Super Bowl. They have never recovered.
They made the playoffs the next year. But I agree the window is long closed and they need to trade/cut everybody, start from 0
Can we give Montgomery the ball now?
I really hate these New Jersey numbers. I have no idea who anyone is. Why the fuck is Woods #2 now?
Those fucking Newark numbers really grind my gears.
Honest Saints fan here. Our ceiling is still *slightly* above 10 wins and a Wild Card Weekend win. We won't be a SB team until the deadcap is down and we can do big FA signings. Let's not let the phenomenal week 1 win get to our heads. It's still early, and it's not cold yet.
Why what happened week 1?
You’re the one making predictions in week 1
Dude was fully tackled before the ball got there lol
Unrelated, but why do both LA teams have the same color scheme
Ever since the Chargers changed their logo I keep confusing it thinking its the Rams logo when I see the schedule on the sidebar. The bolt around the LA looks like a Ram horn and both teams having the same exact colors doesn't help me
I fucking adore Matt Stafford.
Giants should've taken a qb
daniel jones doesn't look like a starter
Giants fan here. Gettlemen has been a disaster. We took a backup QB at 6, a Rb at 2 and a Wr this year. Plus Andrew Thomas isn’t good. We’re fucked
The corpse of Eli was his comparison so Giants fans just like to see a familiar looking face back there.
Why does Aaron Rodgers look like a hobo now and also plays like one? I think he was lying about being in a better mental place, dude looks like he has been on a fucking bender.
Guess that happens when you get dumped by Olivia Munn. Would to me at least
Dude has millions of dollars. He also has groupies. He can afford a high price escort every single day for the rest of his life. I doubt he even feels any pain when it comes to relationships.
I'll drink to that
Lol I can't argue that.
If Nagy wants to win, Put Fields in!
Theres the Stafford we all know and love
That was not Kelly Stafford 😂
The nfc is gonna be a blood bath this yr
TB is probably gonna run the table
Heavy doubt, there defense looks sus
It’s good enough, Dallas offense is good
idk, cowboys should've won the game
a bunch of much better defenses in the nfc
There’s no should’ve won when it’s TB12.
But seriously, Tampa also left points on the table too.
> There’s no should’ve won when it’s TB12.
.....what does Tb12 have to do with the cowboy's kicker?
lol, not everything has to do with brady
I thought the “but seriously” made it obvious that I was joking
Did I miss the witching hour in the late window or Scott not call it?
He definitely called it. There were sirens and everything
In the late games? I swear I didn’t see it
Oh yea, not the late games. Early games he did though
I’m going to file a formal complaint
I didn’t hear him call it
What an outrage!
Can the Bears owner fire Nagy at halftime and instruct the OC to put Fields in?
it's always darkest before the dawn
It's been dark for well near 20 years, let's get some candles or something.
The Bears did make a Super Bowl during the last 20 years...
Yeah, by Rex, but lead by a kickoff return specialist.
I remember when people thought Ramsey was gonna fall off when he got traded
I cannot tell if I like the Rams uniforms or not? I do love the yellow color.
I do know their endzones r awesome
I love them
Bears fans don't deserve this.
Navy’s play calling is trash. Why only call down field passing when it’s long? It’s not like they have a star running back
i <3 jalen ramses
Fields is the new Taysom confirmed.
So what’s the chargers chant? “This is also our house”
"Thank you for letting us rent"
LETS GO FIELDS
Fields hands the ball off good as fuck after all
Matt Nagy is trying to get fired
Yes, yes he is.
It's time for the Rams to crowd the line of scrimmage because they have no fear of Andy Dalton.
I would listen to a podcast called “Chris Collinsworth Explains Video Games.”
lol the rams have a horrible chant. Whose house lol
Is it a play on the old Rev Run show, Runs House?
Whose house? RUNS HOUSE
I have no idea but it's pretty bad. It also doesn't help that the opposing teams fans usually take over the Rams stadium in years past.
It’s not even just their house too... yeah it’s like some video game generic crowd chant
Something you see out of Madden 95
Jameis Winston is on pace for 85 tds and no interceptions. Look out nfl
And 2,500 yards, somehow
Just Jameis things
Rams fans like squishy fries
Goff would have malfunctioned if that happened
cause stafford is such a proven winner............oh wait
Dalton was a loser in Cincinnati, fair enough because its a loser city in Ohio
Can't believe they still let this joker throw the ball.
