NFL Week 6 Late Games Open Thread

A thread to discuss the games

The afternoon game offering this season has been dreadful. This week is no different. For everyone stuck with the Jets-Dolphins game, now is a good time to find something else to do.

GB looks fairly pathetic at this point. Started with Rodgers.

You know, I’ve watched a lot football over the years and the Jets are the worst team I’ve ever watched period

I didn’t realize that Rakeem Nunez-Roches was on the Bucs. I always really liked him on the Chiefs. He was a high effort player.

The stupid start time for the Chiefs game tomorrow is going to stop me from seeing the beginning of it. I’ll have to avoid updates and watch a recording of it. So dumb.

maybe as a group we should all record it and we can watch it together like starting at 7PM central or something. Just a thought

Yeah, but the Titans really threw a wrench in the works, so they had to shake up the schedule. Better for the team to not have that short TNF week, come to that. Still sucks for people with jobs, though.

I leave work around 3:30 with a 15 minute commute. Also have YouTube TV so I can watch on my phone at work if need be.

I’m a significant minority here it seems, but anytime I’m watching the Chiefs I usually listen to the radio crew. I would rather have abject homerism than listen to the knuckleheads that pass as sportscasters nowadays. Plus, that TOUCHDOWN, KAN-SAS CITY! is classic – classic enough that from August to February it’s my notification ringtone.

It seems that streaming sites are getting better and better at syncing up with the radio crew as well, so there isn’t too much delay between what I see on the TV and what I hear Mitch/Danan saying.

The Buccaneer’s defense is really stepping up. They are turning an MVP candidate into Trubisky out there.

Will Gase still have a job when he gets back into the locker room?

Surely not.

I haven’t been watching super closely, but all I’ve seen him throw is the short stuff.

He’s shown he can still throw for some range, so it may come down to decreased velocity, which would require more separation by the WR. He’s still got the quick release, so velocity counts for less on the shorter stuff.

There is that. Kinda ironic that if that deep pass had gotten picked, they’d be in better shape than they are in now.

Just getting to the scores… so the Texans lose & it might have come down to a questionable decision by RAC? Why doesn’t that surprise me at all?

I didn’t mind the call. They were trying to put the game away on one play. The defense choked that game away.

Yeah and the Titans were moving up and down the field on them, so it makes sense to try and end the game there.

They’re more like the 2007 Lions, who lost by an average of 15 points. Gase has to be fired after this, right?

I think that’s only the 3rd pick-6 Aaron Rodgers has ever thrown.

Finally got some accumulated snowfall around here. Bit early compared to other years since we got here, actually, but the temperature dropped off fast. 29F isn’t very cold, but I’ve had little time to acclimate. Brr.

No, just passed nearby a couple times. I couldn’t remember if you’d said where, but it sounded possible.
Went to Ely to camp/fish past couple years, and Red Lake in August.

Both are north of me, and RL’d to the west while Ely’s east, so whether that’s on the way to either depends on your route.

It won’t end here either. Weird, it usually cools off here at the beginning of October.
