    I have to follow that??
    Someday, maybe...
    Not today.


    I just dropped in to mention a few fun things I read today:
    • Rams are the fifth team in NFL history to score 30 or more points in their first five games. Three of the previous four made the Super Bowl.
    • Defending champions Eagles have lost as many games in five weeks as they did all of last season.
    • The Bears have four straight games against AFC East teams coming off their bye.
    • Titans’ last four games have been decided by a total of 10 combined points.
    • Ravens are 0-2 in the state of Ohio this year, and 3-0 everywhere else.
    • Colts TE Eric Ebron (former Lions TE) has five touchdowns this year. No Lions tight end has more than four catches.
    • Odell Beckham has as many touchdown passes as he does touchdown catches this year.
    • The 49ers have more than $47 million in player salaries currently on injured reserve

    Guess the teams there finally cashed in on all the salt made in Ohio these past few seasons.
    This is somehow the most Ebron thing I've ever heard. Lions fans really hated his guts.
    Talk about a disaster of a season. You're riding high on the Garoppolo hype coming into 2018 only for your team to fall apart in the first month.

    Here's a montage of Browns fans celebrating the win over Baltimore.


    Not as much as the Bears hated Jay Cutler.

    I think it would all depend on how you phrase it.

    Do most of us "hate" Cutler? Nah. Do most of us remember his time in a Bears uniform fondly? Nah. But in between, there's a sort of universal truth about Smokin' Jay.

    He spoke deeply to our Chicago Bears pathos. He could be whatever we needed him to be, except, tragically, a winner. One week, he was a rogue who could make a three-touchdown comeback seem blasé; the next, a sullen man-child who seemed to resent the pressures of leadership and the bright lights of stardom.

    He was maddening. He was glorious. He was ours.

    We are literally destroying QBs and we got a roughing the passer penalty for a hand wave? Come on...

    E: Ohh my god! What the hell is that pass interference call?! Refs are trying so hard to make this a game, aren't they?

    I can’t Frelling believe that Mitch kept us in this Maclunkey game and the defense has been blowing it for us.

    Damm
    I could only watch the very one sided Seahawks game. They did give score up dates but there program finished before the end of OT so have only just caught up on the Bears game :(:(:(

    I switched to the Ravens @ Titans game. Watching Tennessee crumble is the only satisfaction I could still get after our shameful performance this week.
    --- Double Post Merged, Oct 14, 2018, Original Post Date: Oct 14, 2018 ---
    Ravens D already generated 5 sacks. I bet @Alamact's watching this game and just having the time of his life.

    Thank you Ravens for that enjoyable game! 11 sacks!

    Nothing gets me more in the mood for football than Carrie Underwood. And by that I mean I can't wait for her to shut up so the game will start.

    Oh, I was. Decided to spoil myself with a full breakfast the next morning. I loved the shutout, I loved the sacks. I'm feeling much more confident about this team going against the Saints at our home turf this week. They have an insane offense, but it's an offense that was held pretty Maclunkey effectively by Cleveland this season. I'm more than confident we could pull it off as well.

    Speaking of interesting Ravens stats, I'm personally more a fan of this one:

    Ok so the attendance for the Seahawks Raiders game in London was 84,900. Which is a new high so let’s hope the other 2 games are equal well supported.

    I’m a Tennessee Titans fan all the way from Houston Oilers to now, and I can say, even though they’re 3-3 and went to the the playoffs last year, that it is a terrible idea and complete misery. Watching Sunday’s game was like watching children vs men. Every time I got to Nashville and watch them, they lose, but I still love them, especially with those all blue uniforms. AFC South is horrible. Here’s hoping for a 9-7 playoff birth.
