Afternoon Game Open Thread

 150 replies

Its your afternoon game open thread. Discuss the action here. Or take a nap. See if I care.

One set of games down and we’re still a day away from watching the Chiefs and Chargers in Mexico City. If you’re still hanging around and not opting for a nap, there are 3 more games to go before Sunday Night Football. If I were to watch either of these games, I suppose I’d go with Pats v. Eagles but perhaps the Cardinals and 49ers will end up being a good game.

  • CARDINALS AT 49ERS 
  • BENGALS AT RAIDERS 
  • PATRIOTS AT EAGLES

What game are you watching?

The best way to describe what I’m watching is bad football

BleedingRedAndGold

The Raiders may have won, but they aren’t holding the Chiefs to 10, and it wouldn’t surprise me much if 17 was all they could manage on our D.

KC Dude (A.K.A Zif)

Every other game of theirs is really winnable though. Say we beat the chargers, and the Raiders we can only afford to drop one more to win the division.

Tyrone

Not saying it will happen, but it also wouldn’t surprise me if Josh Jacobs ran for 200 yards on our D.

Underwhelming, but ultimately effective, performance from the Pats today.

So basically the most Patriots win possible

Not wasting timeouts in the second half is important.

Any bets that the Bears vs Rams game will be a snooze fest?

legal_kush

I think the Bears can win, so yeah. The Rams matchup against Khalil Mack is less than promising.

KC Dude (A.K.A Zif)

That’s the game.

5 minutes left kick the fucking fg, its dumb to go for it here

Bengals doing their best to drop this game

ChiefOfTheWolfpack
ChiefOfTheWolfpack

I mean they are tanking, this is basically exactly what they’re hoping for.

KC Dude (A.K.A Zif)

The thing about tanking is that in the next draft there isn’t really a single player worth tanking for with Tua being a question mark now.

What about Burrow or that chick from Clemson?

KC Dude (A.K.A Zif)

Burrow may be ranked in the top ten players in the upcoming draft, but not worth tanking a season for. Tua was about the only realistic one out there. No Clemson players are listed in the top ten that I have seen.

Chase young from osu is a game wrecker

That hit to Tate on the Bengals looked bad.

hes probably ok, but it was a weird angle and the docs want some xrays to make sure theres nothing to worry about

wish I could universally auto-mute “the champ is here” commercial every time it comes on the TV !

KC Dude (A.K.A Zif)

For some reason I always have to poop when that commercial comes on.

whats up with the double posts?

not seeing any here, fwiw ?

God damn the only fun offense to watch today was the ravens and that was purely because of Lamar Jackson. Mahomes really has ruined watching other nfl offenses

Not wanting to get political, but why the hell is Kaepernick still a thing?

ProfChesterTQ

…because OJ was innocent !

WaywerdSon

cuz the “woke” crowd is convinced that he has been blackballed cuz of racism, when in reality, he just aint as good as the contract he wants. willing to sign for vet minimum and he might get a gig. his shennanigans yesterday just prove he isnt interested in actually getting back in the league where it would be apparent he cant play. he is more interested in riding the controversy for as long as he cam

chief_curmudgeon
chief_curmudgeon

The dude hasn’t played in like 3 years, this just feels like a publicity stunt or something. I just don’t understand why people are still talking about this guy.

Nike money is starting to run out

chief_curmudgeon
chief_curmudgeon

Too bad he got out of his $13M contract early.

KC Dude (A.K.A Zif)

There is also the possibility that he may be better than two or three starting QB’s and about five or six back up QB’s.

chief_curmudgeon
chief_curmudgeon

That’s definitely possible. But I think the fact he hasn’t played in ~3 years is an indication that teams don’t want him, almost certainly because of the controversy he brings. Nothing has changed, so I don’t understand why the heck the NFL is setting up a workout and blah blah blah.

Tyrone

Matt Moore is older, hadn’t played in about 2 years, and didn’t even have any intention of playing.

I would take an Andy Reid coached Kaeperick as a backup to Mahomes over Matt Moore, Henne, or Shurmer for next season.

chief_curmudgeon
chief_curmudgeon

Well, like I said, I don’t think he’s unsigned because of talent. Moreso his controversy and percieved baggage. But since nothing has chaned, I’m confused why he’s in the news again.

Tyrone

“his controversy and perceived baggage”

The controversy has died down? The perception has changed?

What does him being in the news have to do with anyone trying to get him signed to a team?

chief_curmudgeon
chief_curmudgeon

If nothing has changed, why is he being brought in for a workout and all over my newsfeed? That’s my question.

BleedingRedAndGold

Why prevent him from holding a workout? He hasn’t broken any laws or done an AB on a team.

Besides, a lot of that controversy was media-generated, and especially after their handling of the Hill story I’m not trusting them on this, either. Why prevent him from getting a chance to play?

chief_curmudgeon
chief_curmudgeon

I thought the NFL put it on especially for him. I’m not super in-the-know about the situation, but I’m just wondering if anything changed or why this has resurfaced.

Tyrone

Because the NFL are hiding something about ‘blackballing’ him and now trying to do something about it?

BleedingRedAndGold

Yeah, the QB Whisperer is a definite factor. How long was Vick out of the NFL?

Dunno if I agree that Kaep’s necessarily better than Moore, but I can’t definitively say he’s worse without seeing him running the offense. Then again, seems like he’s more disliked than Vick was when he played after serving his time, so I dunno.

Tyrone

Moore looks as “good” as he does mostly due to Reid. When has Moore ever been close to this good before?

Kaepernick was coached by Jim Tomsula and Chip “I’m going to destroy any NFL team I come near” Kelly when he started to look “bad”.

I’d be shocked if Reid couldn’t make Kaepernick way better than Matt Moore has been.

BleedingRedAndGold

I’d be surprised, myself if Reid couldn’t make him sparkle, I’m just not going to call it one way or the other without having more current information.

But you do have point, considering that SF wrecked Smith’s development and then swapped him out for Kaep without changing much. Not talking about the offensive scheme, either. Also, 3 years out is 3 fewer years of wear and tear. Wouldn’t hate it if they brought him into mini-camp or something next offseason for a closer look.

Tyrone

I think it’s likely that he contributed to not getting signed by thinking he was more valuable than he really was, but I also have no doubt that there were factors beyond anything to do with football or his attitude that contributed to it.

There was and still is clearly a lot of racism from a huge proportion of the general public (and probably people involved in the NFL too) with regards to him and the whole ‘protest’.

wvchiefsfan
wvchiefsfan

If he really wanted to play I would think his statement after the work out would be more about how much he loves football, has been working hard, wants to help a team anyway he can, etc, instead of calling out Goodell and the 32 scared teams.

That part was pretty dumb.

How’d the Eagles get pinned at the 3?

By a punt.

BleedingRedAndGold

I walked right into that one. I meant was it fielded, or bounced favorably?

Our takeaway from this week:

We are going to fucking maul the Raiders in two weeks. They can’t even put away the Bungles.

That means we’ll lose.

There was a stretch where we kept beating the eventual Super Bowl winner during the regular season…If only.

thats a fumble

The old “forward progress.”

EAFOX

Aauuuuuggghhhhhh!

Jdklks

I’m convinced that’s a determination they made after the fact. That is not forward progress. It was a bang-bang play. Just awful officiating.

Stuckinpackland

Not if forward progress is stopped

BleedingRedAndGold

Iggles D needs to get a stop – but it’ll be academic if the offense can’t score.

EAFOX

Why is the Arizona – SF game delayed?
