    The NFL's newest "elusive" and "electric" Quotablack, Kizer, was sacked 7 times in his first start.

    Nope, sorry, Michael Wilbon, it wasn't a White QB "pick6", it was black WR incompetence.

    Decker had only 3 catches for 10 yards in his Titans debut. He was targeted 8 times, though.

    This season is certainly off to a wretched start, going back to the Thursday night debacle. Most of the notable performances so far have been by the few White players allowed to play defense. Hopefully the late games will provide more to cheer about.

    Schobert finishes with game-high (of both teams) 9 tackles.

    We still have Nelson and McCaffrey coming up. Hopefully both will make big plays.

    Watson has an INT (as long as another one that was called back on a bogus penalty) and a fumble. I hope Houston has a long season this year. Bortles was not great by any means but I would like to see him improve over he course of the season.

    You may be right but I'm just rooting for Glennon. He's been one of the most unfairly treated quarterbacks since he entered the league. He was by far the best rookie quarterback. Then he's benched for journeyman McCown and then not even given a chance to compete against the rapist for the starting job the following year. It's beyond me why you even draft a qb 1st overall when you have a good young quarterback on your roster. I guess I'm one of those people who never saw the Peyton Manning comparisons to be all that accurate.

    Well today's the big rollout of the McCaffrey era. Hope he does well.

    Beathard is starting for the 49ers. Is Hoyer hurt?

    Anyway, hope Trent Taylor is heavily featured.

    EDIT: BSPN's gametracker was incorrect

    Watching 2 games at the same time. Kupp with a nice catch and run and then Kittle for the 49ers with a catch. Both of
    these guys can really run for a receiver and a tightend.

    What about Austin Hooper and his 128 yard game with a touchdown? Lots of sacks by our few guys is really awesome to see as well.

    I guess Rodgers trusts Seattle's Sumos more than Janis. He better make up for that terrible throw.

    These black receivers have terrible hands but who cares because they can run fast in a straight line.

    Impossible to do well when you don't touch the ball. One reception about 6 yards. end of first quarter! That's it. If this is how the Panthers are going to use him, it'll be disappointing, but at least he'll stay healthy. BTW, he did field a punt. No return.

    My mistake. Stats have him for 1 carry 4 yards and 2 receptions 4 yards. I guess I missed it.

    As an example of what Zach Zenner faces, the first comment on the Lion post-game show was a caller that asked if Zenner would be a better option then Abdullah who could not find any holes, the radio host immediately shot him down telling him that Zenner would not have done better and is nothing but a practice squad player. This is a common viewpoint of the media in Detroit as it concerns Zenner, They completely ignore him and any positives and when the "crazy" idea of playing him comes up, they shoot it down viciously.

    Kupp with a nice long(ish) catch. Leading the Rams WRers in receiving so far.
