NFL Week 13 Open Discussion Thread

Here we go continuing on with Week 14 of the 2017 NFL regular season.

I have already outlined a few games worth watching today while we wait for the Pittsburgh Steelers to play the Baltimore Ravens later on tonight. As usual, I invite all of yinz to discuss whatever your heart desires in this Sunday afternoon thread.

Look for Matthew Marczi to start the weekly first half game thread roughly 45 minutes prior to the Steelers night game getting underway. The inactives will be out 90 minutes before the game starts.

  • SteelersGeek4Lyfe

    Looking forward to Eli Manning ending the Cowgirls’ season today.

  • Spencer Krick

    Watching the Chefs/Raiders. Raiders OLine getting dominated so far.

  • Phil Brenneman II

    Not sure that is going to happen.

  • Phil Brenneman II

    Vikings/Panthers for me. Case Keenum tied the Vikings team record for passes completed in a row (15 I think) and then throws a pick on his next pass smh.

  • SteelersDepot

    See that Panthers power run? That gets me excited.

  • ThePointe

    So, what happens if Eli come out and throws for 300+ and 4TDs? Does everyone then pile on Ben McAdoo and proclaim him the biggest idiot in coaching?

  • Phil Brenneman II

    Yeah that was a good play. Vikings second level over commited big time on that. He had a TD 4 yards past the LoS it seemed.

  • Phil Brenneman II

    I think most people are already calling him that.

  • ThePointe

    Lol +1

  • ThePointe

    Wow, the Browns just might pull out a win this week, and still be the in the lead for the 1st pick in the draft.

  • StolenUpVotes

    Richie kotite 2.0

  • StolenUpVotes

    This Buffalo/Indianapolis game is boring as all heck due to the weather lol

  • Phil Brenneman II

    Anyone else think Jim Nantz sounds “bubbly” having Romo in the booth with him? Still think that was easily the best offseason move getting rid of that bum Simms. Romo being great at his job is just the cherry on top.

  • StolenUpVotes

    Yes. Now let’s just get Fouts out of the booth

  • Spencer Krick

    Very cool of Duke Johnson. I hope the Browns win this one.

  • ThePointe

    I can’t remember the last time I actually enjoyed listening to a national announcer, but I really enjoy listening to Romo.

  • Jaybird

    Anyone watching the WHITEOUT blizzard in Buffalo. I’ve never seen it snow harder than it did in the first quarter. Amazing.

  • StolenUpVotes

    Those flakes were huge!

  • Jaybird

    Tell me casting Dan Fouts in the WaterBoy wasn’t a perfect fit. Sometimes i think there is something wrong with Fouts medulla oblongata.

  • Phil Brenneman II

    Anyone seen any Garoppolo? How is he looking?

  • StolenUpVotes

    If not for mistakes the bears would be running the Bungs out of their own building

  • Jaybird

    It’s still snowing hard as hell , but the first quarter- it must have snowed a good SIX INCHES in twenty minutes!!!!

  • StolenUpVotes

    3 completions lol

  • StolenUpVotes

    The guy has no idea what he is watching anymore

  • ThePointe

    Cincy with a post Steelers hangover?

  • DirtDawg1964

    Chris Smith of the Bungles nailed Trubisky with a helmet to helmet hit. And was flagged. Let’s see if he gets a suspension. Guessing not because no one is watching that game.

  • DirtDawg1964

    Been flipping between games but he looked good in the brief snippets I’ve seen. He’s been under pressure all day though.

    Threw a perfect 50 yard spiral to Hyde but Hyde inexplicably slowed down on the play. Missed the connection.

  • DirtDawg1964

    No debate he’s an idiot. It’s the “biggest” part that’s remotely debatable.

    Handled the Eli benching all wrong. There was no need to see what Smith brings. Plenty of tape on that guy. And if he wanted to see Davis Webb in action he could have easily put him into a game that was out of hand. It’s not like the Giants were competitive in most games.

    Or he could have chosen to do nothing. Webb wasn’t brought in to be the guy. Not any time soon. All they did with the benching was basically say Eli is done. Made a huge mess.

  • Uncle Rico.

    That drill where you chop your steps though a series of tires, I always wonder what that was suppose to be specifically training me for. Mystery solved.

  • Spencer Krick

    Oakland looks bad.

  • StolenUpVotes

    Bc they are bad

  • DirtDawg1964

    Bears should be able to hang on. Ahead by 19, just stripped Green, and are now marching. Ten minutes to play.

    What an odd season for them. This will be win #4. Three have come against the AFC North and they have yet to play Cleveland.

    Bizarre. Should go under “Stats of the Weird”.

  • Jaybird

    Cool – Colts score ! Hopefully they tie it up and it goes to OT. I want to see some more snow!

  • Jaybird

    Damn – they are going for two- no OT!

  • Chad Weiss

    And they got it

  • Jaybird

    Two point conversion called back – now they are attempting an extra point. Maybe OT!!!

  • Jaybird

    Penalty- going for one again!!!!

  • Jaybird

    There is over a foot of snow on the field- OVER A FOOT! Never seen so much snow during a game.

  • Jaybird

    Extra point is good!!!! OT here we come!!!!

  • Chad Weiss

    Ugh

  • Jaybird

    Colts miss a 43 yrd FG – OT BABY!!!!

  • StolenUpVotes

    They may be one of those “surprise” NFC teams next year

  • DirtDawg1964

    Oh dear. I feel for the Browns. They give up a huge return to set up the tying TD and then Kizer heaves the ball up for a horrible interception in OT. Pack take the ball down the field for a walk off TD.

  • StolenUpVotes

    Hahahahahahahahaha hahahahahahahahaha I hope they are terrible forever! They deserve it and I will enjoy the 2 divisional wins every year.

  • pittfan

    Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch.

  • Applebite

    Cincy fans should riot like it’s 1999, if Lewis isn’t fired after the year…

  • StolenUpVotes

    #keepLewis

  • I couldn’t care less about the Colts or the Bills, but I had to watch that whole game. That was quite possibly the thickest snow I’ve seen in a football game. It was so funny to see the players trying to clear the field with their cleats. Great catch toward the end by the Bills’ WR. It was a fun one to watch just to see who would finally come out on top in OT. I thought it may end in a tie, but Buffalo pulled it out at the end.

  • Phil Brenneman II

    I watched it too. Despite the offenses being mostly terrible it was still fun to see. Made me want to play some backyard football really badly next time we get a big snow my way.

  • Mister Wirez

    Terrance Garvin knocks the ball loose from the Jags on the Seattle kickoff… Seattle scores TD on next play. 10-10

  • Mister Wirez

    #KeepLewis !! Lol

  • DirtDawg1964

    I was flipping to it throughout the day. I live two hours away in London, Ontario. We got a little bit of snow but Buffalo got hammered.

  • DirtDawg1964

    That was a big hit. Unfortunately Jax just hit a 75 yard TD reception.

  • DirtDawg1964

    We should riot if he is.

    His ineptness ultimately helps us.

  • Mister Wirez

    Lol.. Is that Blake Bortles or John Elway? Nice throw.

    Seriously though, if Jacksonville had a better QB, they’d be a really dangerous team.

  • Jaybird

    I watched it too, made me feel like a little kid again. Let it snow!

  • Applebite

    How does it help the Steelers, if they’re never challenged to be better than they are? A strong division is good for everyone involved. Otherwise, the Steelers would have no way of measuring themselves.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Russell Wilson man – I’ve been saying it all season.

  • I4giveSteelers

    neither one of these off. lines in the LA vs Phi, game can block

  • I4giveSteelers

    I know Im in a minority, but I dont care who your name is, if you dont produce in the NFL. you get benched. 2 and 10 SHOULD get you benched.

  • I4giveSteelers

    but we are talking about the socialist new yorkers

  • pittfan

    leverage? wtf?

  • Kevin Schwartz

    I know Fournette says he doesn’t want to play in the cold, but he’s gonna be tough to tackle in it.

  • DirtDawg1964

    Bennett just rolled into a Jag player’s legs, while they were in the victory formation. Richardson then punched multiple Jag players and gets tossed. On the very next play, another Seahawk (Jefferson I think) also gets tossed and then gets into it with fans. Tried to get into the stands.

    Let’s see if that gets anyone a suspension.
