The Giants started off great against the Jets. Good to see Landon Collins get a pick 6 as well. Next time though don't allow the Jets to come all the way back from 29-3 deficit.

Hoo-wee, Charissa Thompson looked amazing today. Oh, right, football, sorry.



Titans played like shit, which I didn't expect with both Mariota and Cassel playing. But the Bears defense actually looks good this year, so that explains that.

The Bengals/Redskins game was the best preseason I've seen this year. Too bad Cincy couldn't close it out with a simple toss to the end zone to win it by one, especially with Burfict making that huge interception for the touchdown earlier.



Why do Fox's graphics keep getting crappier? These are the blandest on-screen statistics in the HD television era by a country mile.

Kinda sucks to see the 49ers lose the game to the Vikings when they controlled most of the game. But I guess our backups and 3rd stringers need to improve. I will say that the first string offense was looking sexy in the first half. Hoyer looked good out there, Hyde was making plays and actually ran a route for a passing TD. Oh yeah, Pierre Garcon looked great too. The defense looked decent as well. Does it give me high hopes for the season? Yeah. But I am not expecting Playoffs. Expecting for 6-8 wins is the realistic goal for this team.

I can't believe the Pats haters aren't in here jumping for joy saying that's what cheaters get, etc.

Sucks about Jules immensely, but I sill like the depth we have at WR. Concerned about Mitchell and Amendola has injury history. We have a lot of pass catching backs, but that being said things could turn south quick. Carr is probably not quite ready for the 53 man roster, but all things considered I don't want to risk losing him on the practice squad.

And Ealy was easy to see coming. There was something brewing from day one and it wasn't just performance related. Don't piss off coach Belichick lol

Obviously. They haven't been good in ages unfortunately. I wanna say since the 13-3 season when Chris Johnson was tearing it up.

But you have to admit that was an unbelievable ending, the home crowd absolutely got their money's worth.

Best preseason game of all time. Especially with the added bonus of Mostert and McKinnon trading touchdowns back to back like that.

Definitely. It was also a matter of the starters not being around, but still, everyone on the team needs to bring it, not just your starters.

Also loved that Webb got some playtime. I mean, it wasn't a lot of playtime, but for a rookie he looked really comfortable. Couldn't ask for a better mentor.

Shock move this morning as the Browns cut their pro bowl corner Joe Haden. I'm sure many teams are interested in signing him.

Also in other news earlier this week, the Lions sign Matthew Stafford to an extension for 5 years worth $135 million, making him the highest paid player in NFL history.

The Rams game was boring as hell, Green Bay just waltzed in and stomped all over them.

The Chargers game was kind of exciting, but only because of all the interceptions. San Fran took command from the start, that Beathard touchdown was da shit! Good for the Niners.





Now comes Saturday at 4ET/1PT, AKA the NFL mass exodus...

I might have to eat crow in the future if CJ Beathard keeps this up. He's been impressive for a guy who didn't put up sexy stats in college.

Another high scoring game for the Giants. A see-saw between the Giants vs Pats. Giants end the preseason with a win. Jacoby Brissett had a awesome game with 5 TDs for the Pats sucks it was against us but a win is a win.

When Alex Smith fell over, all I could think was Mahomes got in his head, LOL.

Good to see Kansas City come out strong. Even if I think Gronk got robbed of his TD, the Chiefs still won convincingly.


I really hope Hightower and Berry are going to be okay.

I'm sure no one predicted that outcome. For the Chiefs to win 42-27, but I gotta said good for Kareem Hunt for bouncing back after that fumble. Shows a lot resiliency, and kudos to Alex Smith for his day. Cool game to watch if as a non-Chief/Patriots fan.

Sucks for both teams losing key players.
