    Gostkowski is older and coming off a hip injury (which is a bad injury for a kicker).
    Big gamble for Vrabel when you have a contending team.
    This weekend we rock Portland

    Leave it to these fools to stick us with Cincy vs Cleve tonight.  Week 2, prime time, only the fourth day to watch football this year....and it is an uninspiring matchup that most likely only interests fans of the teams playing.

    Horrible.

    I saw a commercial hyping it as the battle between two #1s 🤣🤣🤣. It’s pitiful.

    That is really the only way they can hype it to try and make it national.  The Battle of Ohio works....for people who are from OH.

    I thought of that as I typed what I did (having not seen that commercial) so it made me laugh to read this.

    Will I watch?  Perhaps.  If I do I'm sure to have a book going at the same time.  If I don't, being that it is week 2 and I'm still excited they are playing football, I am sure I will monitor on phone and check it out if it gets crazy.

    What a difference between weeks 1 and 2.

    Eh....I mean it is the number 1 pick in the draft and a team who has generated a bunch of interest over the last year or two. This ain't the best but there have definitely been worse Thursday night games.

    I don't like Thur.s Night games to begin with and this not a great match up. 

    Just watch, we're talking shit about this game  and it'll be a great close game>LOL

    Yeah, if I had some money I'd have to make a bet to make things interesting.

    I'm not sure if I would want to see the Battle of Ohio, or the battle of New York less (Jets vs Giants).  Maybe you'll see some action on the Cleveland sideline between OBJ and Mayfield.

    It will be interesting to see how this pans out.

    On one hand, MLB had several positives early in their 'season' but bounced back well enough. On the other hand, there are a lot more guys that play for and travel with each NFL team, not to mention there's no comparison between the two sports when it comes to the player contact on the field, so MLB probably isn't a great comparison.

    I think the NFL is determined to pull this season off - the revenue they get from TV & fantasy are too great to ignore, not to mention the gambling industry, there's just too much money at stake... barring something catastrophic (Like a player dying from covid), I think the NFL will play until they have a champion regardless of who's on the field.

    The one thing the NFL cannot do that MLB did do is postpone games when these things happen though. There really isn't much time to make them up in a 16 game season...

    Agreed, & if they have to cancel a game here or there, no big deal (for them)... win % will still determine playoff seeding - it will get a little tricky if they have to determine tie breakers, but let's face it, it's not like the NFL is too worried about credibility.

    I don't know. Having teams playing different number of games would put an even bigger asterisk on their season than this stupid baseball season. 

    I agree, though. They are gonna try and push the season through no matter what.

    Yeah they're going to try and play, rumor is the Titan/Steelers game may shift to Monday night allowing for extra testing and prep time for Tenn who's facility is closed till Saturday.
    Other contingency plan is shifting Steelers & Ravens game from week 7 to week 8, when both are scheduled for their byes, and Titans/Steelers playing week 7 when Tenn has their bye scheduled. 
    Either is do-able without too much issue.
    Minnesota so far has zero positive tests so the Vikings/Texans game should go off.

    If this is the only incidence with more than 1 or 2 positive tests on a team the NFL can work around it, but if any more larger scale outbreaks happen we could devolve into chaos, especially later in season after teams have already had bye weeks.
    They should have built in a week 18 for make up games, could still shift the playoffs back a week if it comes to that.

    Believe it or not, for the first ten years of the league, the teams didn't play the same amount of games and yes, a champion was determined by win percentage. Here, check out the standings from 1929. The champion Packers played 13 games, while the Frankford Yellow Jackets played 19!

    https://www.pro-football-reference.com/years/1929/index.htm

    Obiously something like that would be ridiculous these days. But if it became unaviodable that one or two games had to be cancelled due to Covid, I could live with that.

    Yup... just saw it's going to get postponed until later in the season. One or two postponed games are probably manageable... but if more teams have outbreaks they're going to be in trouble.
