NFL Week 9 Open Discussion Thread

Thanks to the Pittsburgh Steelers being on a bye this week we all can sit back and enjoy several of the key games that will take place on this Week 9 Sunday. I’ve already highlighted 4 games that fans of the Steelers will likely want to keep an eye on today and that list is of course headlined by the Cincinnati Bengals and the Baltimore Ravens both playing on the road.

When these key games get underway, I will update this post with highlights and injury updates.

  • SteelersDepot

    Bengals catch a little break with Leonard Fournette inactive. Sigh!

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    yoi

  • ryan72384

    Don’t know why everyone hates bye weeks so much. It’s the one Sunday during football season where I get to actually just relax and watch football without an emotional attachment to the game. No broken remotes today. No doors kicked in. No broken windows. No breathing exercises to calm myself down and lower blood pressure. Just relaxation! Bengals over Jags (Only because Fournette is out), Titans over Ravens, Dolphins over Raiders, Cowboys over Chiefs

  • PompeyGoat

    Bengals, Titans, Chiefs & Dolphins.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    What a bogus block in the back call against titans

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Casey with the dragon screw leg whip on Flacco!

  • pittfan

    whoever said “Browns lose bye week” gets 1,000 LOLs.

  • pittfan

    A game not on the list but the Broncos are getting pounded by Philly. I wonder how their fortunes would change if Ben was their QB?

  • pittfan

    During the season, I mainline Steeler football. Today I’m jonesing hard.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Ben was created for only one NFL team.

  • John

    Watching Rams. Their coaching staff must be terrific. Great spacing. QB has plenty of time. Misdirection plays work. Pretty to watch.

  • Ravens Team Gynecologist

    AJ green throwing punches? Not the bengal you expect that from.

  • pittfan

    They have turned things around big time. KNowing LA, they’ll attract a lot of fair weather fans.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Probably one of the biggest team turn arounds I’ve ever seen.

  • pittfan

    Maybe he’d like out of that dysfunctional family?

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Frustration will make you do crazy things.

  • Ravens Team Gynecologist

    Or those guys are rubbing off on him.

  • DirtDawg1964

    He got ejected. But so did Ramsey. Makes zero sense. And Burfict ran into the field from the sidelines. That’s supposed to draw a flag. Pac-Man was ready to go but was held back.

    Class acts those Bungles.

  • DirtDawg1964

    Koch drilled a 57 yard punt from deep in his own end. But the Ravens drew a flag. Repunt. 17 yard shank. Titans scored not long after. Beautiful.

  • Ravens Team Gynecologist

    Yeah I didn’t see anything Ramsey didn’t to warrant getting ejected. He got mugged..from behind.

  • DirtDawg1964

    Getting rid of Fisher, world’s most overrated coach (although threatened by Marvin Lewis), helps.

  • NinjaMountie

    AJ Green needs suspended for that crazy UFC crud. He also needs to be told that punching a helmet is STUPID!!!!

  • 6 ring circus

    Eject them all, let god sort them out…

  • Phil Brenneman II

    Eagles are certainly holding up their end of the all PA Superbowl. Steelers need to keep pace on the other side. Eagles are making it look easy this season.

  • NinjaMountie

    To bad they didn’t accept that trade offer of MB for Wentz. 😉

  • Ravens Team Gynecologist

    I’m glad directv had both the bengals and ravens game on the 4 game channel. Watching them both implode simultaneously is refreshing.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Stanley reinjured right shoulder. Return questionable.

  • John

    Eagles look terrific. They appear much more creative on offense than we do.

  • Yiz

    AJ Green went straight MMA on Jalen Ramsey😆😂😂😂😭Looks like Burfict & Pacman is rubbing off on that entire team. Marvin Lewis has no control of his team & ppl say we have distractions

  • pittfan

    AJ would have takers if he asked to be traded.

  • pittfan

    Meanwhile the Raiders are going in the opposite direction!

  • Ravens Team Gynecologist

    Bungles give up a TD on punt return.

  • DirtDawg1964

    Titans just stoned the Ravens on 4th and two inches deep in the Titans zone.

  • DirtDawg1964

    You could see that one coming. The gunners got too deep. They were just past the returner. He slit the difference and off he went. Up by 16. Nice!

  • NinjaMountie

    So far it’s shaping up to be a good day for the Steelers!!!
    The cherry on top is that Ohio State got whooooooooooooped by Iowa! hahahahahahahahha

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Life is good.

  • NinjaMountie

    And my weekend can not be ruined because the Steelers aren’t playing and have no chance to lose.
    Life is Greaaat! lol

  • Darth Blount 47

    Matt Ryan just ran 45 yards and handed the ball to Julio Jones in the endzone and Julio dropped it. I’m tired of having and hearing the “Julio Jones is the best WR in football” argument. Because, he might not even be top 5, let alone number 1 over Brown.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Freaking Ravens on the move

  • NinjaMountie

    Brown is the best. There is no discussion. Julio is just in the conversation because he’s more the prototypical size.

  • NinjaMountie

    Hate them!

  • Darth Blount 47

    Exactly. Sometimes I think people forget that receivers’ first job is to CATCH THE BALL. And NOBODY does that more and better than Antonio Brown.

  • NinjaMountie

    That being said they are only hurting their draft position because they definitely aren’t going to the playoffs.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    They have a very easy 2nd half schedule.

  • NinjaMountie

    I predict two Power 5 conferences will not have a rep in the CFB playoffs.
    Alabama, Georgia, ND and either Oklahoma or Clemson will be there.
    Wisconsin can go undefeated and will still not get in. The PAC is out of luck.

  • Darth Blount 47

    Newsflash: The Bungles are NOT GOOD. Maybe you DO need Offensive Linemen to have offensive success. Who knew? Lol.

  • ryan72384

    Eagles making this season look easy and Jags have that look of a team that nobody should want to see in the playoffs. Kind of like 07 lol

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    I dont want crows to ruin the ambience of my afternoon.

  • Darth Blount 47

    I own the Ratbird defense in 2 out of my 3 fantasy teams. That side of the ball has been amazing. They have been my best “player(s)”

  • NinjaMountie

    They didn’t have a hard first half and lost 4 games. I still think they’ll lose this one.

  • DirtDawg1964

    Burfict wanted Bortles to be a them. Well, he’s 22 of 36 for 240 yards and a TD on a day when they don’t have Fournette.

    At least the Bengals have the second coming of Bell in Mixon, right? 13 carries, 31 yards.

  • DirtDawg1964

    It may be an easy schedule but the Ravens are a terrible team. Just awful to watch.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    I actually clapped for first time today on that Titann first down.

  • WilliamSekinger

    You can be sure Mixon did more with those 13 carries than Bell ever could…says Joe Mixon lol!

  • Darth Blount 47

    Can someone tell Tennessee that the weakest part of the Balty D is run defense?! The fact that the Titans have both Murray AND Henry, yet only have 17 total rushes, is criminal and asinine.

  • DirtDawg1964

    Titans at Baltimore’s 35. Six minutes to play.

  • NinjaMountie

    If Mixon hit holes as hard as he hit that girl he would be okay.

  • ryan72384

    Their offensive coordinator called in sick. Todd Haley is the substitute

  • NinjaMountie

    That’s the game I’m watching, too. Cincy got boring.

  • Darth Blount 47

    Pittsburgh South…

  • Chad Sanborn

    in theory so do we

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    How do the Steelers stack up against the Titans?

  • Darth Blount 47

    TD, Titans!!! That should salt that game away since Baltimore doesn’t employ an Offense.

  • NinjaMountie

    Penn State tried to ruin my weekend but Ohio State made up for it.
    That being said, PSU falling to 16 was too much of a drop.

  • DirtDawg1964

    Decker scores. Titans back up by 10. Four minutes to play.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Haley called th passay on the TD – problems?

  • 6 ring circus

    Brown gets even more kudos for NOT being prototypical. Megatron, Dez, Julio, even Larry…take notes…

  • NinjaMountie

    I loved that score! Why doesn’t Pitt do stuff like that in the RZ. Maybe they do and I don’t remember.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    But playing weak teams is a problem for Steelers – remember?

  • DirtDawg1964

    Ratbirds also only have 1 timeout left.

  • DirtDawg1964

    The Ravens leading receiver is a RB. Jump ball Joe has become Check down Joe.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Did Penn State play? I dont remember.

  • NinjaMountie

    This weekend is getting ready to be heavenly. Just a few more minutes. Another Flacco INT would be a perfect way to end the game.

  • Chad Sanborn

    anyone watching how the colts are doing?

  • NinjaMountie

    Yeah, no kidding.

  • ryan72384

    Will have to be quite a collapse for us to not win the division this year. Our boys have to be loving this bye week seeing the Bengals and Ravens getting beat

  • DirtDawg1964

    Hilton having huge day. 175 yards and two TDS. Colts up by 6. Texans look terrible on offence. As expected.

  • NinjaMountie

    Just the score is all I’ve paid attention to.

  • Darth Blount 47

    If the Houston Texans don’t sign Colin Kaepernick, I’ll officially be on the “Colin has been undoubtedly black-balled” team. He fits their Offense perfectly. And Tommy Savage is losing to the worst D in football and is 13 of 33.

    I’m sitting at home, and am currently better than 13 for 33.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    not watching but they up 20-14

  • NinjaMountie

    Oh, he’s PNG for sure. The owner also have that right.

  • DirtDawg1964

    Burfict face mask penalty. Jax at the 5 yard line. Two minute warning. That game is over.

  • Darth Blount 47

    Their owner could get himself out of potential trouble and kill two birds with one stone and potentially save the Texans’ season.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Kaeparnick wouldn’t sign for them after what the owner said.

  • ryan72384

    Are the Saints a sneaky threat in the NFC? 6 and 2 and their defense actually looks legit for the first time in years.. We know they can always score.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    dont care. Not a Kaepernick or a Texan fan.

  • Darth Blount 47

    Then THAT is then officially on Kaepernick.

    They play indoors, have weapons, and are in the playoff hunt still. He turns them down, and he (and everyone else) can shut the f*** up the rest of the year as far as I’m concerned.

  • NinjaMountie

    I meant to say owners. He could get himself out of trouble with the team. He’d destroy it with the fan base. People would be shocked at the drop in numbers caused by the fans dislike of this situation. I was.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Even though Marvin Lewis is a bunghole, he’s leagues better than Fisher.

  • Ravens Team Gynecologist

    You really beleive Kapernick will turn their season around?

  • NinjaMountie

    Yes, was just discussing that with my friend. Right now the 2nd best team in the NFC

  • Darth Blount 47

    My brother and I had that convo last night. He and I both agreed they are DEF in the hunt.

    Kamara is for real. And I know he didn’t get a lot of pre-draft love when many others did.

  • Steeler Nation

    Congrads MarvinLewis…refusing to sit those two rotten apples has resulted in the whole barrel going bad. AJ come on man you where one of the last Bengals I actually respected!!! Now I have no one! On a high note we did learn something today… two footed kick to the face is OK (no flag) but three baby punches to the helmet is over the top!! good to know eh?

  • NinjaMountie

    Just curious, why isn’t it on Kaepernick now? I think it is.

  • Ravens Team Gynecologist

    Are the Jags are a dark horse team for us to worry about in competition for a first round bye? They hold the tie-breaker on us and have a pretty easy schedule the rest of the way. Only tough game they have is Seattle at home and maybe the Chargers(also at home).

  • Darth Blount 47

    He’s better than Tom Savage. THAT is what I’m absolutely sure of. That, and they don’t quite need a “turn it around” guy. They need a “get the ball to Hopkins and Fuller” guy.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Eh, can’t put aside your values just because.

  • Darth Blount 47

    By that rationale, he’s only waiting for that Cinderella slipper that fits just right. And if that has been the case the whole time, then what has been the hubbub?

  • DirtDawg1964

    Cincy had 8 first downs today, 149 yards, and held the ball for 19 minutes. Putrid. Looks good on them.

  • ryan72384

    Only team that looks like they could give Philly a game right now in the NFC

  • ryan72384

    Yep I agree right there behind Philly

  • Darth Blount 47

    Don’t sleep on Seattle or even sneakily Minnesota.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    He should have been had a job to be honest.

  • NinjaMountie

    Ah….almost got my Flacco int

  • Ravens Team Gynecologist

    I’ll agree with you on that, but I don’t buy in to the concerted effort to keep him out of the league. He was mediocre at best the last 2 seasons and brings a tornado of distractions via media circus. If teams thought he could play, he would. Mike Vick was toxic after he got out of prison for dog-fighting, but there was belief he could play and he got the chances to prove it.

  • Darth Blount 47

    I haven’t heard a single team say they were willing to sign him.

  • NinjaMountie

    I agree. It’s his fault.

  • ryan72384

    I worry about everything involving the Jags. Stealing our bye or even having to play them. They are that perfect crappy weather playoff team. Running game and defense that is physical as all hell

  • Darth Blount 47

    I’m just not sure he has gotten a single offer. And that includes as a backup, which is the point. Not even roster-able? BS.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Titans game coming down to recovering an onside kick

  • NinjaMountie

    I would have agreed a couple of weeks ago until I read an article on the revenue they’ve lost. I don’t blame the owners now. It is a business.

  • Darth Blount 47

    Debatable.

  • ryan72384

    Yeah Minnesota is like the Saints. Just doing their thing and nobody really talking about them. Seattle can never be counted out with Russ and their D

  • NinjaMountie

    Not really. He did something. Was he withing his rights? In my opinion, yes. Does that mean there will not be repercussions from those acts just because you’re right? Nope.
    He did and now he’s paying for it.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Revenue Smevnue. He is better than most of the backups and alot of starters. Crazy how Miami signed Cutler instead. It is what it is.

  • Ravens Team Gynecologist

    Is he better than some backups in the league? Absolutely. Do you want for you(if you are the coach) and your players to have to answer 10 questions a day at each practice about your backup QB? It’s the same reason, to some degree, that Tebow wasn’t in the league longer.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Harbaugh was a special teams coach but

  • DirtDawg1964

    Kick didn’t even go ten yards. Game over.

  • DirtDawg1964

    Love those conference losses. The division is ours to lose. Now we have to get that first round bye secured.

  • Darth Blount 47

    Bungles lose and Ratbirds lose? Is this a charmed season? Couldn’t have started the second half of the season better and we didn’t even play! SWEET!

  • ryan72384

    Geez I forgot about the Rams being 6-2 as well. I guess the Saints aren’t the only sneaky contender in the NFC.

  • NinjaMountie

    bwahahaahahha…my weekend is officially complete!

  • Ravens Team Gynecologist

    Best bye week ever!

  • Darth Blount 47

    Well enough I’d say. They seem to not know how to use their weapons properly. Plus, our Offense will know exactly how to attack their Defense.

  • ryan72384

    A Chiefs loss would be sweet too

  • DirtDawg1964

    Definitely better than Savage. Have to think he’d be a huge distraction though.

  • Ravens Team Gynecologist

    Maybe we will get lucky?

  • NinjaMountie

    For the record guys. I think Kaep should have a job. I think he was within his rights to protest. I also just see it from the owners perspective and can understand why they wouldn’t want him on their team.
    Personally, I think he’s better than half the legitimate starters in the NFL.

  • Darth Blount 47

    Eh, these guys are professionals. It’s part of the job description.

  • alevin16

    I am guessing we want Ind to win?

  • Darth Blount 47

    That’s a subjective view. And is EXACTLY how “black-balling” begins.

  • Darth Blount 47

    Still? I doubt it. But maybe.

  • NinjaMountie

    Texans game is an interesting ending.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Realistically, Kaepernick is probably as good or better than the starting QBs for : Dolphins, Jets, Browns, Houston, Indy, Jacksonville, Denver, Chicago, Arizona, and SF. Take out Chicago because they’re devoloping Trubisky, and SF because it was time for them both to part. Take out the Jets, Denver, and Indy because they’re starters are arguably equal and you don’t want to swap out equals.

    Arizona, Miami, Houston, Jackonsville, and Cleveland could all probably make their teams notably better by signing Kaepernick as a starter.

    If you wanted him as a backup, there are even more teams. Honestly, I don’t know about his salary demands/our cap space, and I don’t know if they’re seriously considering going after someone like Smith or Cousins in the offseason, but if the Steelers are expecting 1) for Ben to retire after this season, and 2) to draft and develop his replacement – then I’d say sign him. He gives you a better shot to win in the next two seasons than any rookie we’re going to pick up, and the fact is that the rest of the roster can contend.

  • ryan72384

    Barkevious Mingo sighting

  • Darth Blount 47

    Tom Savage is GOD AWFUL. Just cost the Texans a win.

  • NinjaMountie

    lol…I felt bad for Houston when they lost their QB

  • Sam Clonch

    Meh, don’t think it matters either way. Neither are PO teams. We have to play both, but both will be only playing for pride.

  • Ravens Team Gynecologist

    I agree and they are paid accordingly, but as they always say “head coaches hate distractions.

  • WilliamSekinger

    Well its a wonderful day in the AFCN neighborhood!

  • ryan72384

    Only halfway through this season but the Texans have to be an AFC favorite heading into next year. Getting their 2 best defensive players back and a QB who looks like the real deal. Yikes

  • NinjaMountie

    You call it black-balling. I call it a business decision of not wanting to bring on a trouble employee. It’s legit. It’s also not subjective. He absolutely DID do something there is no doubt about that. Actions have consequences. There is no doubt about that. Just because we don’t agree with the consequences doesn’t make it subjective.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Can’t never look at the NFL that way. What does NFL stand for? Not For Long.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    I’m not a legal expert, but I believe it’s probably illegal for them to collude/blackball him. He’s filing suit against the league, which would indicate that it’s not legally allowed. Whether he wins or not is a different question.

    The difference is teams individually deciding not to sign him vs. a formal agreement that no one sign him.

  • NinjaMountie

    Right. It almost sounds like what people thought about the ‘skins after RG3’s initial season. You never know what’s going to happen.

  • Chad Sanborn

    can’t take a sack there and he managed to do eve worse. yikes

  • NinjaMountie

    Colluding would be illegal. There isn’t evidence of that. It’s perfectly reasonable to think that there just isn’t anyone that wants his type of headache.
    If the owners actually colluded they deserve whatever extreme amount of money they’ll have to pay Kaep. That would just be stupid. And WHY would they do that?

  • Chad Sanborn

    Week 14–Eagles Vs Rams– Thats a game I can’t wait to see. And possibly a big one for the playoff picture

  • Chad Sanborn

    Oprah came out– You get a LOSS and You get a LOSS

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Normally, I don’t root for the Cowboys but will make an exception for this game.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    I agree – but, I think Russell Wilson is a better comparison for Watson than RG3. RG3 relied way too much on his legs and didn’t develop as a passer. Watson’s athletic, but he seems like a more developed/polished pocket passer.

    Also, part of RG3’s issue was that he never learned to slide/avoid hits. I remember watching him, after a bunch of injuries, dive headfirst for a first down in the middle of the field, halfway through a game. You just can’t do that stuff as a QB, and he never really learned that.

  • Agustin-ARG

    Drew Bress deserves a playoffs game. Guaranteed shutout

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    How is Kaeparnick a headache again? I’m curious.

  • NinjaMountie

    I agree. I wasn’t comparing the player, just the situation.

  • NinjaMountie

    Since I annoyed some people with the Kaep things I’m just going to continue to annoy:

    I would prefer Elliot to Bell every day of the week and twice on Sunday, Monday and Thursday.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    I’m not saying they did – but, if you claim he’s being black-balled (as the original post suggested) that’s what I would assume is meant. I doubt there was a formal contract, and in no way am I indicating that they did, but a more spoken understanding wouldn’t completely shock me.

    Having said that, I still don’t think that it happened.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Gotcha – yeah, to be honest, I think the bigger concern is Watt coming back at full strength.

  • Michael James

    Surely a suspension. However, I would really like to know what Ramsey said, because Green was going to kill him and even though he’s a Bengal, Green is the last person you would expect that from. He’s normally a relaxed guy.
    Rumors are going around that Ramsey said something about raping Green’s wife/kid.

  • NinjaMountie

    The fans hate him and he might continue to kneel.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Haha, so this is what happens when there’s no game to talk about. If I’m being honest, pure skill-wise, I’d take David Johnson over him, but I’d take him over Elliott.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    For what tho? Players kneel every Sunday, do they hate them? Really what did Kaep do to anyone? There is no excuse. Period.

  • NinjaMountie

    I’d take Johnson over him too. So now we’re up to two people I’d take over Bell. When will the madness end!!??

  • Darth Blount 47

    I thought he already came out and said he wouldn’t kneel any longer? Wasn’t that the report?

  • Kevin Schwartz

    You ready to trade him for Devonta Freeman and a 4th rounder?

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    True colors shining thru! Lol!

  • NinjaMountie

    I heard that. I also heard he came out and said that report isn’t true. Let me google it and find the internet truth, lol.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    His camp said that was false.

  • Darth Blount 47

    For me, I just think there has been too much evidence that something stinks in Denmark. Multiple teams with injured QB’s. And going with backups that are atrocious over even giving Kap a shot. I’m still on the fence about whether he’s turned down legit offers though. If he has, or if he does, like in the case of the Texans potentially calling him, then I have ZERO sympthy for him. But if literally not a single team has called, or does ever call this year, then yes… Put me down for believing he was black-balled. And that yes, owners had an “unspoken” or perhaps even widely disseminated verbal agreement to teach him a huge lesson. In their eyes.

  • Darth Blount 47

    Gotcha. I hadn’t heard the “follow-up.”

  • NinjaMountie

    He is the figurehead. Whether that is fair is certainly debatable but it seems to be the case.
    First we have to acknowledge this is a divisive subject. That’s a fact. Another fact is that it’s already cost the owners a lot of money. It’s also a fact that the a significant portion of the owners are actually scared of the damage it could do if it goes on.
    It doesn’t matter what you or I think. We’re fans with a social opinion. I just recognize that the movement, be it right or wrong, puts the teams and owners in a rough spot. I also recognize that they have an obligation to the brand and it’s their right to protect their business from unwanted publicity.
    That’s all I’m saying.
    As I’ve stated many times, I’m a vet and I think this hoopla over the anthem is nonsense. Fans have their panties in a bunch over nothing. They do have them in a bunch, though.

  • NinjaMountie

    Thank you. Saved me from having to seek out the internet truth.

  • Darth Blount 47

    Gurley? Kareem Hunt? Fournette?

  • Darth Blount 47

    I love Elliott. Just traded for him this week in my fantasy league. I’ve never owned him before. That said, as a Le’Veon Bell owner as well, I wouldn’t trade Bell for anyone. And I promise that isn’t being a “homer.” However, if contract factors in, I would have to consider it if I was wise.

  • NinjaMountie

    Nope, Nope, nope cause of medical

  • Jaybird

    Just came in . What game are you guys watching- Seahawks or cowboys

  • Darth Blount 47

    Heard.

  • NinjaMountie

    LOL…I’m giddy over my “perfect” football weekend.

  • NinjaMountie

    flipping between both

  • Darth Blount 47

    Cowgirls and Warpath.

    Way bigger Steeler implications. Potentially.

  • Jaybird

    The seahawk game is pretty good- 2-0 in the 4th inning

  • NinjaMountie

    For the Record. Assassins Creed Origins is pretty darn fun.

    Oh, and I can’t forget to add this. This weekend was so good with the teams losing I wanted to lose it’s going to make watching STAR TREK: DISCOVERY even more relaxing!!!!!!!

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Eh, tomatoes tomotoes. If owners rather lose games and not sign Kaeparnick, cool with me, but please don’t say that it’s business when all of these guys are still rich and will probably forever make money. What’s right is right and not for the love of business.

  • Darth Blount 47

    Mariners/Nationals. Lol.

  • NinjaMountie

    Nope…let me look at all the RBs and I’ll let you know if there is another.

  • NinjaMountie

    what!! I’d throw in a 1st rounder. lol

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Is it? I’m playing Prey right now and one of the biggest love/hate relationships I’ve ever been in.

  • NinjaMountie

    Nope, Just Elliot and Johnson

  • NinjaMountie

    I think this AC is pretty different as far as mechanics. It was like learning a new game. Gameplay is still similar. It’s HUGE.

  • NinjaMountie

    Big emphasis on hunting for crafting so far. I’ve almost got everything upgraded though and not even half way through. Kinda sad….I love the hunting part.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    It’s so easy to see he isn’t getting any tryouts or anything. Schefler would be all over that.

  • Jaybird

    Every time I watch the cowboys , Tyron Smith has a ton of penalties.

  • EdJHJr

    Ramsey pushed green and calmly walks away. Not that i like the bungles, but green should have waited maybe until after the game or something. Then kicked him in the groin.

  • NinjaMountie

    Every time I watch the Cowboys I’m surprised by how much I love the team they’re playing. 🙂

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    The reason I love Far Cry games.

  • Jaybird

    gotta root against the Chiefs today though

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    I’ve only played the first one and I hated it. So boring. I haven’t played another since.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Lesean McCoy? Melvin Gordon? Dalvin Cook?

  • pittfan

    +1. go cowgirls. today

  • NinjaMountie

    I would like to think I’d do as you’re saying. However, and this is what gets me, the owner knows he’s going to be rich no matter what but what about the Moms and the Pops that rely on his brand staying healthy to provide a moderate living? I’d also hope I’d think about those people.
    One could also say that Kaep has made enough money so he should focus on his social agenda if it’s that important to him. The truth is they both have a right to do what they are doing.
    All I’m saying is that despite what side you fall on there are (most always) legit reasons for the other side. Not trying to understand the other side is why this country is where it is right now.

  • NinjaMountie

    They got much, much better. I didn’t start with the first one which is good because I played it later and if it were the first I’d never have bought another.

  • Jaybird

    Seattle just missed a 3run home run. Still lead 2-0 bottom of the 5th.

  • NinjaMountie

    Did you ever play WoW?

  • NinjaMountie

    True…it’s just sooo hard.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    What part of Kansas is this game in; Dallas or Kansas City?

  • NinjaMountie

    What! You mean punching a guy in the helmet isn’t effective! lol
    Green should be suspended.

  • NinjaMountie

    Did any of you guys see James Franklin run his player down at the end of the game that was walking off without congratulating the other team.
    Got in his face and made him go back and congratulate them. Sprinted down the field to catch him!
    Now that’s a good college coach!!

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    To the people that believe Kaep has made enough money should really open their eyes and this is why this country is how it is. Compare that with a owner. These guys aren’t going to go broke signing Kaeparnick. Winning games remedies all problems.

  • Jaybird

    Daylight savings really sucks. 5 pm and its dark. Depressing

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    No. Console gamer.

  • NinjaMountie

    Maybe, I just don’t like taking extreme stances. I always try and see the other side even when I disagree with them.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Lol, or not do anything.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    😂😂😂😂🤣🤣🤣🤣 Silly Chiefs!

  • NinjaMountie

    That game was a big reason why I broke up with my ex-gf. She wanted to take up too much of my free time and I had crafting that needed done! hahahahahaahahaaha

    I seriously had to give up that game. I got addicted.

  • NinjaMountie

    All my clocks are connected to the internet. I wouldn’t even know it happened if people didn’t talk about it. Kinda sad …..and scary.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Lol that kinda game could do that to you! I was pretty big on Borderlands, but you can’t choose your game over your lady!

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    That extra hour of sleep made me feel better! 😂😂😂

  • NinjaMountie

    Meh…there is always another girl. Though, she was a good one.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Anyone know why Sammy Watkins isn’t getting any targets in L.A? I picked him up in Fantasy because both of my WRs were on bye, and he did fine today because he had a long TD, but it’s really not clear to me why they’re not using him at all.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Also the right girl will never take away what’s important to you. My wife never hindered my gaming.

  • NinjaMountie

    Cooper Kupp

  • NinjaMountie

    Kelce so much better than Gronk

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    I have not seen them play so I couldn’t tell you.

  • NinjaMountie

    eeeh…maybe I’d take Hunt over Bell. lol

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Are you suggesting I pick him up, or he’s the reason Watkins isn’t getting targets? Woods is actually their leading receiver. It just seems weird since he’s talented, he’s not injured, and they have a decent offense.

  • NinjaMountie

    He’s the biggest reason Watkins isn’t getting targets. Goff has like Kupp since camp. He’s got great YAC and he loves him in the RZ. He’s not a scoring machine but he is the WR with the most TDs.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    I hear you – just saying, Watkins has 6 receptions total in the last 5 games. Seems like they could get him a little more involved, even if Cupp is preferred.

  • NinjaMountie

    How do you even consider letting A Smith go after the season if you’re KC. That would be a STUPID thing to do.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Man, Russell Wilson is underrated in my opinion. I’ve been watching him because he’s on my Fantasy team. He gets pressured on nearly every play, has so-so weapons (Baldwin’s and Graham are good, but not great), and they have virtually no run game. Their offense isn’t great, but I’m pretty sure it would fall apart without him.

  • NinjaMountie

    I wasn’t aware he was such bad production. Wow.

  • NinjaMountie

    They could have had MB for a 1st round pick lol.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    He’s legs are the equalizer. He also has a never ending pool of energy.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Yeah, he was on the Waiver wire in both of my leagues. I picked him up because both my receivers are on bye, and I figured I’d take a gamble/stash him in case he picked back up.

  • pittfan

    Romo is great to listen to. His crack about Lee’s kick was hilarious

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Yeah – he’s smart about it too. He doesn’t go for extra yards and take big hits.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    One of the best running QBs in history.

  • NinjaMountie

    and lack of big INTs

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Yeah, that’s the other thing – I almost never see him make bad throws.

  • ryan72384

    I’m saying heading into the preseason if they have all hands on deck there is no way they cannot be considered a legitimate contender. And I believe Watson is already light years ahead of RG3. That guy was sooo overrated coming out. Watson was a gamer in college and hasn’t always just relied on his legs. He can throw. I agree though things can change and anything can happen.

  • NinjaMountie

    That run was hilarious

  • ryan72384

    Yep the guy is just a winner plain and simple. Hardly ever commits stupid turnovers and seems to give 150 percent ever single play. Always looks like he’s running for his life and still makes great throws and decisions.

  • NinjaMountie

    Jimmy Graham is over-rated. I just feel like being contrary today. Too much caffeine.

  • NinjaMountie

    Great catch. I wish we had drafted Wilson.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    How do you think he’s currently rated?

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    He doesn’t want to block.

  • NinjaMountie

    Hmmmmm….good question. I shall ponder.

  • NinjaMountie

    true ….very true.

  • NinjaMountie

    Right off…without question, I’d want Kelce for my TE. Not even a struggle in my mind.

  • NinjaMountie

    Seattle is shopping for a new kicker.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    I’d say he’s generally considered a tier below Kelce and Gronk at the moment. I’d put him about equal with someone like Greg Olson.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    He’s no where near Olsen.

  • NinjaMountie

    TEs I would want:
    1. Kelce
    2. Austin S-J
    3. Rudolph

    Edite: OOps Ertz squeesed in there

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Only because Gronk is always hurt, but if you had a guarantee that Gronk won’t get hurt then it’s Gronkowski all day.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Evan Engram can play. Not sure about his blocking, but he’s been one of the only consistent receivers on the Giants this year.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    You think Olsen’s that much better? Maybe – Graham’s got more big play ability, but you might be right.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Gronk
    Kelce
    Olsen
    D Walker
    Rudolph

  • NinjaMountie

    Gronk didn’t make my list cause he’s fragile. Olsen didn’t make it cause I’m worried he might be.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    When he was healthy he was Cam’s go to. He blocks and he a leader on and off the field.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Yeah – you’re probably right.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    I’m going off of an injury free guarantee.

  • NinjaMountie

    I like Prescott. I wasn’t high on him when he came out. I was stupid.

  • NinjaMountie

    Even injury free don’t you think Kelce appears much more athletic than Gronk?

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Definitely, but you can bring down Kelce, it takes a village to bring down Gronk.

  • NinjaMountie

    HOLY CRAP

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    WTF!!!

  • NinjaMountie

    Does that ever work

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Only in Dallas.

  • NinjaMountie

    true

  • pittfan

    wow! like a punt return. that was a first but it wont be the last..

  • WilliamSekinger

    First time I’ve ever seen that work. I hate it that KC is back in this game now

  • NinjaMountie

    If I had to pick up an under the radar TE I’d try for Luke Wilson. I always liked him.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    AJ Darby.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    I fell asleep, what happened?

  • NinjaMountie

    Definitely another one.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Chiefs game? Cowboys in prevent deep defense, Tyreek Hill catches one underneath and still scores.

  • NinjaMountie

    Baltimore won. We’re now 4 games back. Looks like we will not be getting number 9 this year.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    I was up for that; lol

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Just saw the replay – looked like they just let him waltz in.

  • O’Neal

    It was a bit faster than a waltz. Very good running. Good play design.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    They thought when the clock reached 00 the half is over.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Viennese waltz then; that has a faster tempo.

  • O’Neal

    Dude has special speed, he made them look bad

  • O’Neal

    Screw dallas, im rooting for kc

  • NinjaMountie

    Welp…we jinxed Wilson. He threw a head scratcher there

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Potato sack race!?

  • Nathanael Dory

    Man..TB must be the most disappointed team in the NFL

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Very disappointing.

  • jsteeler

    Wow, Bengals & Ravens lose today!
    I’m loving it.
    Steelers getting healthy.
    Nice.

  • Nathanael Dory

    I was hoping a11-5 record from them at least. But 2-6?!!!! wooo!

  • GravityWon

    I think the Ravens would have signed him until the social media posts by his girlfriend. Sometimes teams bring players in and don’t sign them immediately. They’re on the short list of candidates. Kaepernicks gf blew that opportunity for him.

    Other owners are probably turned off by that as much as anything.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    I said they would make the playoffs. They look awful.

  • GravityWon

    I hate cheering for the cowboys but if they beat KC that will make it a sweep.

  • Michael Mosgrove

    ramsey shoves green so green punches him multiple times? bungles gonna bungle.

  • pittfan

    Raiders have been a big flop too. They closed out last year strong.

  • GravityWon

    KC down 11. Wow, what a day to be a Steelers fans.

    What next? Brady decides to retire due to fallout with Belichick?

  • NinjaMountie

    Ummm Seattles kicker

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Now I just have to wait for Walking Dead.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    Don’t forget the chokeslam!

  • Mister Wirez

    Quick note.. Joe Flacco is NOT elite!

  • pittfan

    I’m Negan!

  • ThatGuy

    And the Chiefs lost. What a beautiful bye week lol

  • 6 ring circus

    lol, you ripped mr. winkle…

  • Sdale

    …and he doesn’t drop easy balls. Graham has serious mental lapses some games.

  • Nathanael Dory

    True but I always tough their defense was bad. Even with the pieces they have.

  • Jeff Papiernik

    It’s like with any job. You rub your boss(es) the wrong way, you may just find yourself out of the job, even if you may be more qualified than your replacement.
