The 'Boys were surely exposed against the Broncos. I guess if you want to beat Dallas, bring a man (maybe two) down in the box. Force Dak to beat you with the pass.

Now, I will say, you'd better have one of the best DB-fields in League, or you'll pay big time.

Speaking of one of the best DB-fields in the League. I assume Talib (spl) and Dez are going study now. Aqib Talib didn't let Bryant breath without him being in his hip pocket.

Damn ZoW!
Damn Broncos!

Peggy, can Payton last another season with a poor Defense? I mean they're really, really bad.

And, I feel sorry for Brees, TPTB (Mrs. Hodgepodge) and of course,Mr. Mo. Brees shouldn't have to go out like this.

The Chargers kicker had to call Uber to get a ride home after the game. This is the 2nd-game he could've tied or won with a field-goal.

I'm really surprise by the Seahawks showing in these two games. As TBC points out, it's taken them two games to score a TD. WTF! And, I'm worried about Wilson. I really like the guy, but I'm not sure he'll last thru the season if they don't protect him.
