    Johnny “The Tejas Shiek” Manziel, it might have been Egyptian, Saudi or some such place in the region. The other half of him was some type of Gypsy outlaw. Even if the booze, drugs and degenerate lifestyle didnt get him those little bird legs were not going to make it long in the NFL.

    Shame that CMac was just 4 yards short of 100 yards. Oh well, still a great game. They do need a better QB asap tho.

    Burrow with a great late drive to give the Bengals an attempt to tie the game. Kicker misses it. Some great throws into tight windows.

    Burrow got hosed after leading his team down the field with no timeouts. Kicker missed an old time extra point shot. Great drive though.

    Hunter Henry had 5 receptions for 73 yards. Solid day for Hunter.

    The NFL needs to do something about the roughing calls on QBs when they give themselves up and a split second later their is accidental contact because a defender can't react that fast. It's an obvious rule change to favor quotas IMO.

    49ers lose to Arizona. Bengals lose to Chargers. Long day, for sure. Need a Rams win tonight.

    Nice chunk play for Scotty Miller but this game is annoying the hell out of me. Tampa is terribly coached. Poor discipline all the way around. Some fool muffed a punt return that was heading out of bounds and gave the Saints the ball near the end zone.

    If Scotty Miller stays healthy I don’t think it would be crazy to see him have around 700 yards or more this year. I think he’ll stick around in the NFL for a while.

    Rams need to win out of the gate. Looking forward to seeing Goff to Kupp and Higbee.

    No doubt, as long as TB12 doesnt fall off a cliff as well. He is clearly becoming the new Welker or Edelman for Tom. I wouldn’t be surprised if he is our next 1000 yard receiver. Thielen, Kupp, Renfrow and him at years end. One of them has to get there for sure. The crazy part is that he most likely wouldnt even get to play with any other team, this should give him value going forward.

    Joe Burrow showed a lot today. In fact, he may have played the best out of the six starting QBs in the three late games.

    I agree, Bucs were the perfect team for him. He didn’t line up in the slot much today like most teams would probably use him. It was mainly him and Evans on the outside with Godwin in the slot. I think Miller is a good matchup in the slot but he’s too fast to not put him on the outside. Good job Bucs in using Scotty the correct way.

    Sam Hubbard, the best defensive lineman in the NFL that no one talks about, had a typical busy day. No sacks but 9 total tackles (1 for a loss). If healthy, he could lead defensive lineman with tackles while adding in around 10 sacks and a forced fumble or 2. Great player.

    Another D-lineman I want to highlight is Zach Allen. In what was I believe his first NFL game (injured all last season), he recorded a sack. Hopefully it’s the first of many in a long, productive career.

    So much for all the hype about Trent Taylor becoming Wes Welker Jr. today -- 2 catches for 7 yards. Does not bode well at all given the injuries San Fran has at receiver. Also, Kittle was a decoy in the second half after hurting his knee late in the first half, gotta hope he'll be ready to go next week.

    Overall the 49ers offense did not look sharp at all, particularly Jimmy G. They should have won the game as Arizona's offense didn't look good either.

    As a Uw fan that idiot was former husky jaydon mickens who is close to several records and has many for the team even though he sucked. Fans hated him despite his hallow good numbers. Short idiot with terrible catch radius who couldn’t catch a ball over a foot in front of his chest, and no playmaking ability but somehow had luck as a returner in the nfl. Don’t know how he’s Still on a team, probably his one nice punt return td.

    Great playcalling early for the Rams - the motion and misdirection are two things the Rodent should do to utilize Trubisky's athletic ability.

    Cowboys run defense is awful - not even a quarter into their season and their glaring weakness is evident.

    When they switched to the Raiders game late I didn't see LB Kwiatkoski. He had left the game with a chest injury. S Jeff Heath was discussed above. Did he barely play or was he in there a lot? Sadly Tanner Muse was placed on the IR (toe) but it is the three week list so he should be back in a month or so. Injuries drive me bonkers.

    Will have to look up the extent of Drue Tranquill's injury. Joey Bosa had a sack. What else is new?

    Different season same result. Andy Isabella nowhere to be seen?

    I already noticed that when the Rams put in two TEs, Robert Woods stayed in and Kupp didn't, the exact same total bs that went on during the second half of the 2019 season. I've only seen them use two TEs once so far, so still too early to see if last year's pattern repeats but it doesn't look good. So far Woods has been used the way Kupp should be. Woods is a good receiver but Cooper is a superstar talent.
