Going to camp tomorrow morning, after see if I can get a LG Blount or Marcellus! Wallace (Bennett) jersey on clearance at the pro shop. Interested to see Cooks and new guys in action.

Anybody else checking out their teams in camp?

We also decided that while we still like the Falcons, the Eagles are our favorite NFC squad.

NFL!!!!

Red and White tonite, I'm sad, wanted MORE color in unis.

I know you are all sad about Pats sucking, but be of good cheer, it's good to have regular season games with meaning instead of waiting to Thanksgiving.

Newt's taking some chit, I'm sure Jameis will get some questions too. If Bucs win, he will be on podium a while.

Should be a fun game tonight - 2 funnel defenses. On paper there should be like 60 points.

That was a really stupid comment by Cam; he deserves some flack. I guess he only wants HIS "equality". Oh well, he has always been pretty immature.

What did Jameis say or do?

Is it worth starting Doug Martin if your other options are Ty Montgomery (broken ribs, Q), McCaffery or Mixon? (My RB's suck) Probably have to roll the dice, but TB is playing it quiet.

Says if you want to stop him from dancing around like an idiot after scoring then stop him from scoring. Hes then prevented from scoring and then complains that hes getting hit too much.

I love Newt the player and was wondering if his recent injuries would force him into better throwing mechanics this season, cause he so often threw off back foot, unbalanced, etc, and his great physical ability still made completions. We will see going forward how he manages sport and real life stuff.

Definition of larger than life character though.

Love the fashion statements he makes!

That cam thing was all over sports radio today. Generally people in the biz are angry with the disrespect he showed. That reporter is apparently assigned to his team and he knows her very well. He also knows that she knows football. Maybe an inside joke that shoulda stayed off tv.

Google Lin Elliott, but yes, painful for Bucs.

Why'd they go away from Martin? He's the better runner, blocker, and at least as good a pass catcher as Rodgers.

Eagles O-line getting exploited too much in the first half. Nice to see Wentz playing so tough though. He should give Fig Newton some lessons (if Cam isn't too busy whining about officiating or practicing his extended, prima donna celebrations).

Yikes, Rodgers hit semi-late, hurt throwing arm/shoulder. Could be a collar bone. Taken to the locker room. Honestly surprised it wasn't called in today's game.

Edit: Confirmed broken collar bone. Bad news for the Pack.

Yeah definitely want to see how he does vs that Seattle D.

Jets are very surprising, I thought they'd be straight up garbage this year, very impressed with how they've pulled together.

I just watched the replay, he didn't have possession of the ball as it crossed the goal line. Same thing happened to Gurley last week against the Seahawks when he fumbled at the goal line and the ball clipped the pylon.

No worries. Chiefs proved their coaching staff is their achilles. They aren't elite, but damn they have talent. Will be an interesting year.

The Pats look bad, but is it a prolonged preseason slump? Give it another few weeks and we'll know. Pats #1 power rankings!

Ugh, seriously! I know bad ref calls are nothing new but this one took the cake. Every game I saw today commented on it atleast once and it's all over the post-game talk. Not only was it clearly a touchdown and not a fumble, but even worse, they ruled it a td originally and actually thought they had enough conclusive evidence to OVERTURN it. How??? Jets get screwed out of atleast overtime, possibly a win. People who bet money on them or played ASJ in fantasy football and lost by less than 8 points got a right to be livid too. Hope those officials are held accountable.

Definitely rolling upon crossing the goal line and didn't regain possession while in bounds. I though it would be Pat's ball at the spot of where the fumble happened, not at the 20 as well.

KC has made one big mistake, the coverage breakdown on the second touchdown to Cooper. The first touchdown was a fudgeup by the refs. The penalty taking away the Houston-forced fumble was another ref mistake.
