    Further riffing on New England, it's pretty damned arrogant of them to come into this season with only 3 journeymen WRs, one of whom is a kick returner who's never been successful as a wideout, and a suspect running game.

    The Patriots? Arrogant? Gosh, I just can't imagine.

    Wonder how many survivor pools were nuked by the Bills win.

    There's a very fine line between being arrogant and being right!

    But with a 41-year old QB -- who in the 4th qtr appeared to no longer give a shite -- who seems to have lost a step, and with a complete lack of a running game, maybe coming into the season that way was a little too much.

    Right here

    I won SenorSheep's pool last year... we get three strikes. I missed week 1 when New Orleans lost to Tampa, missed making a pick last week (doh) and am Out on the bills.
    I'm not expecting to grow flowers in the desert...

    We started with 41 in my survivor pool. 1 strike. The Saints and Steelers destroyed the pool in Week 1. There were 14 left going into this week and 10 picked the Vikings (including me). One picked the Jags.

    So now we're down to 3 out of 41 already and I've already been asked twice to start a second pool.

    Would the 49ers fan base be open to Kaepernick’s return considering he led them to Super Bowl XLVII in 2013?

    Or would they remember he lost 20 of his last 24 starts?

    Clay Matthews had a beautiful perfect sack and it was called roughing the QB. Terrible terrible call.

    i am a Bears fan and that call made me so angry that I didn't even know what to do with myself...hmm see name calling thread.

    "Terrible terrible call. "

    I understand if you hate the new RULE - lots of fans do.
    but by the rule, the sack of Alex Smith was clearly roughing the passer.

    I do think Mathews got screwed in the Vikings game, and that one changed the outcome.
    the Redskins one had nothing at all to do with the result.

    FitzMagic is the first QB in league history to throw for 400+ yards in 3 straight games.
