:lol:
The Washington Football Team says there will not be spectators at games to start the season, but they will have loudspeakers pipe in the sounds of fans booing.
Granted, they're in a larger stadium now, but when I was young D.C. Stadium (changed to Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium in 1969) was sold out with season tickets many years in advance. It was a football crazy city, and this was during mediocre years.

It was a proud and storied franchise - too bad it got infected with Snyder plague.

Seen on TV Guide site: Tony Romo is "now the highest-paid TV analyst ever." Take that, Jerry, Jerry, Jerry.

No respect, get no respect at all.
TV sports chick doing a segment on the Seahawk's final 53 and had highlights for some players. Highlight film for running back DeeJay Dallas (The U) showed him going about 50 yards to score on the 'Heels.

Yeah, they could have just showed him running the 40 - either way he was unimpeded to the line.

Yay 'Hawks!
WTF, Iggles? Losing to a literal no-name? Arggh.
Da Bears!
Hey Panthers, missing Olsen, Cam, and Riverboat Ron yet?

On to the Brady Bucs and Saints. Overall, if we've got to be grounded inside to stay out of the toxic smoke, today's not a bad day to do it.

I think Brady spent more time on his back today than all of last season.

Picked off a couple of times, once for six. Couldn't quite keep drives going. Petered out in the 4th when still within winning range of the legendary Brady. Didn't hear Gronk's name very often. Buc defence didn't help much, though. And the Saints are still a very good team.

Some good games today.

Hey Pathetic Panthers - you missing Cam and Olsen yet?
Brady apparently remembered who he was.

He looked like a Buc. :D


That ATL INT vs Bears TD in the endzone was nuts! I'm glad I wasn't deciding.

Not clear and concise. Shouldn't have been overturned.

Foles is not the answer.

Then again, neither is Trubisky.

Too bad about that dropped TD, too.

Edit: 3rd time is a charm, but likely too little too late.

Edit #2: Or not.

What - You want more than 3 TD's in the 4th?

:D There were. He made two 4th quarter TD throws that didn't count. Huge props to the 4th quarter defense, too.
