Not a great first half for the Eagles. The offense is screen right, screen left, screen right, and punt. Dumb! The defense is playing okay though.

Fly!!! Eagles!!! Fly!!!

Re: Week Five of the 2021 NFL Regular Season!!!

The Packers-Bengals went into overtime. Packers won 25-22. Mason Crosby missed 3 field goals; Bengals' McPherson missed 2. Either team would have won at the end of regulation. 

 

Now the Giants' kicker missed a field goal. There must be something strange going on with all the missed goals. I think several teams need to start a competition to sign Justin Tucker. 

 

Congrats to the Eagles! That has got to be relief to the team and Nick Sirianni.

That was an ugly ankle/lower leg injury for Saquon Barkley. He'll be out for a while and maybe the rest of the year. At the very least he's probably looking at 4-6 weeks. If it's 10-12 weeks you might as well just keep him on the sidelines until next year.

Re: Week Five of the 2021 NFL Regular Season!!!

what is going on with mahomes this season?

i was in shock last night.

i was talking with my s/o and he says that now that mahomes has been around a few years that other teams now know how to read him a lot better, so he is going to have to adapt and change his style around a bit to keep them guessing.

 

i have always been a mahomes fan, but i was shaking my head while watching that game.

 

 

RAVENS COLTS tonight! cannot wait!

Any really good college kickers out there? I think they may find themselves being offered jobs.

Kansas City's defense isn't very good, either. Mahomes is still a top ten, but not elite. Other teams are figuring out KC, so Andy Reid better get moving and do something to fix the problems. 

 

I'm happy for the Bills. I've always like that team and am glad that they've finally come into their own.

Yes, OU has a great field goal kicker.  Already made a couple of 56 yarders and several over 50.  I was just thinking yesterday how Green Bay and Cincy could have both used him.

 

And speaking about OU, what an incredible comeback they had Saturday against Texas.  One of the best Red River Showdowns I've ever seen.

 

Good weekend all around for the Sooners past and present players.  So happy for Kyler Murray and Jalen Hurts in their victories and Baker and the Browns came close to winning. Cee Dee Lamb is doing for the Cowboys what he used to do for the Sooners.

 

It's fun these days to be a Sooners and Cowboys fan.  Wonderful win against the big division rival Giants yesterday.  Just very sorry to see those injuries to Barkley and Jones.

Yeah, he and Urban Meyer may both end up out of jobs. It's so weird that with "End Racism" on helmets that anyone would still be racist. It couldn't possibly mean those sayings on helmets don't work.
