    Seasons back, not the greatest numbers for our guys and a bit late for me in the UK but good to have football back I think in these COVID times!

    Had a quick sweep of the depth charts and not looking at much in the skill positions aside from I would say the best tight end in football Travis Kelce be good to see him have a good game tonight!

    Unsure if Sorensen will start at safety but be good to see him pick off Watson!

    Texans are a very black team so not much to root for there other than hoping JJ Watt is back to something like his best!

    Good to have football back I say!

    Yeah, too late for me also. Will check the box-score tomorrow and look forward to redzone Sunday.

    Niemann and Sorensen should see snaps on D. Kelce on the other side as mentioned, and also a positive to have two Tackles starting, something that is becoming worryingly rare.
    My only interest in the Texan's is seeing J.J. getting to 100 and beyond. They have been a vile team for a number of years.

    Yes Fisher and Schwarz are a great tackle pairing!

    Forgot about Niemann fingers crossed he sees some action!

    Gentleman hate to inform you but neither one of you are late. In fact both of you are kicking off the season. And none of my business but I think both posters might be located in the UK which is kind of ironic as us state siders are sleeping on the side of the road. Ha.

    Kelce is my favorite TE and he is as good a TE I have ever watched. Hopefully Sorensen picks up where he left off last season although for reasons that escape me he might not start.

    I believe we will hear prerecorded piped in noise during NFL telecasts. I was reading an article about it and I think they have a separate noise source piped into the stadiums too. It is actually pretty complicated. I was going to direct members to the article but reading it was like getting lost in a jungle. Ha. The Chiefs are a rare team that will have some fans in the stands. Around 17,000.

    Couple of bits of news that confound me. Edge Clay Matthews almost just signed with the Broncos but it fell through. Still no one has bothered to pick up WR/PR Ryan Switzer. What???

    Some interesting match ups week one. I will get the Patriots/Dolphins which I find interesting. At the same time I will get Jets/Bills which is also of interest.

    To me though the biggest game is obviously Saints/Bucs. Brady's first game with them will grab huge ratings. It is the late afternoon game on Fox. I hear WR Mike Evans is a bit banged up and is listed as questionable. Which leads me to my first nickname of the season. I dub Bucs WRs Justin Watson and Scotty Miller the Brady Bunch. Man I would love for those two to show up big in the opener. Maybe I am hoping for too much. Hell might as well think happy thoughts before openers.

    My favorite team the Raiders take on CM and the Panthers in a game I won't get.

    Sunday night game is Rams/Cowboys. Go Rams. Cowboys LB Sean Lee was placed on the three week injured reserve list.

    Monday night there will be two games. Giants/Steelers is the opener and I am rooting for the Giants.

    We've got a fancy new 24/7 nfl channel here on sky satellite for the season, been pushing that here ad nauseam lol.

    Love soccer as well and we've had sound added on for tv broadcasts for months here to compensate for no fans, not sure how good piped in sound will be but it does help fans at home feel like it's not a training match!

    Switzer move is ridiculous hes quality need someone to take a chance.

    Patriots are my team disappointed we have Cam Newton at qb this year we'll have to see how that goes still got jules and rex and the new TE Dalton Keene and hopefully gunner olsewski Edelman mk 2will have a breakout year.

    Love McCaffrey hes great best running back in the league for me!

    Yes go Rams with Goff and Kupp leading the charge, Dak Prescott is so mediocre its untrue.

    I haven’t been watching yet. Did they start the game kneeling to the national anthem? Did they also play the “black national anthem”? If so, did the players kneel for that?

    I watched the game at the last second and cant speak for the anthem. They were doing some stupid armlock thing and promoting communism by Uncle Al and Aunt Chrissy. Chrissy to his credit seemed like he was reading a hostage statement. Mahomes doesnt seem to give 2 craps about this black power movement ( that could change with money and manipulation by the head scumbags though)

    I haven't watched the game. Watching the college game. I typically avoid prime time games with quotaback matchups these days.

    Totally understand.

    Tuning in now and literally laughed out loud when I saw Andy “Porky Pig” Reid’s face shield. I guess the fat man is very concerned about Covid-1984. I shouldn’t mock him too badly as he’s actually in the small demographic that is high risk: over 60 and morbidly obese.

    Hopkins was a very good WR - bailed out Watson on many an occasion. I think this year we will that Watson is not as good as the media thinks he is.

    Ever since Krappernick declared jihad on White America I haven't watched the kneeling. I'd rather miss the first play of the game than waste a second of my eyes' time on that.

    I also usually have had the sound off, particularly if Aunt Crissy and Uncle Al were on duty.

    I think you are right. Watson looking very poor against a very mediocre Chiefs defense (they are mid-tier). I think Houston’s time has come and gone. Poor roster moves and JJ Watt’s decline will have them out of the playoffs this year. Tennessee and Indianapolis should both finish ahead of them.

    Really hoping that Watson does not get to put up big garbage time stats like RG3 use to do. Its been a trainwreck so far. Also Mahomes has had 2 picks overturned by penalties. I’ll take the over on 10 of those situations this year.

    Gentleman's bet - I think the Jags will win the AFC South lol. They are my team this year. I love that Gardner Minshew - he's a character and a fun QB to watch. They purged everyone that was a malcontent from the team so I give them respect as an organization.

    Houston's defense is not good - swiss cheese tonight. They had one of the most enjoyable defenses to watch when they had Watt, Crick, Connor Barwin, Brooks Reed and Brian Cushing. Seems like a long time ago.

    Yes we should keep track of that. Some of us have pointed those out in prior years. Maybe Footballdad can track that for us.

    Right on Cue, Watson marches down the field for a meaningless TD. Converted a 4th down as well. Could have easily ended the night with 150 yards and a pick.

    That is a hell of a prediction. I hope you are right as the Jags are probably the most palatable.

    Can we add to the list Watson’s touchdown throw? The replay clearly showed one of their sumos jump offsides but the referees swallowed the whistle. It was so obvious that Porky Pig, Rabbi Al and Uncle Cris all made a minor fuss about it.

    This is how I will be involved. Coming to CF for updates on our guys and teams. So much better than viewing the anti-White league with racists and dumb ASF players.

    Watson looked awful tonight but the narrative all year is going to be bad O line as well as the loss of Deandre Hopkins to excuse what could be a very challenging season for him. Look for him to get a pass from all media and analysts.
