TBC, you notice how Peggy never mentioned Folk's 3 missed FGs? That definitely should've been another loss for New England.

Speaking of Nick Folk, he started his career with the Dallas Cowboys, and was pretty good for a couple of seasons. Then he moved on to the Jets and now Tampa Bay. He'll probably be cut again before the Bucs play another game.

Well, I don't really think that any aspect of a game (other than the last play) can be looked at afterward and determined to have decided it. Play-calling, intensity, personnel, etc, all vary with the flow of the contest. Folk may have made all three kicks and the Bucs still lost--in fact, I think they would have. The Pats adjust differently to different situations, and are most motivated when their backs are to the wall.

Interesting to note is that Folk replaced Martin Gramatica in Dallas the season after Tony Romo botched the hold for Gramatica's field-goal attempt versus Seattle in the 2006/7 playoffs (a game both you and TBC probably remember with different emotions). Gramatica started his career with the Bucs and won a Super Bowl with them; after Dallas he competed in New England for the kicking job after Vinitieri left but lost to Stephen Gostkowski. Folk is now with Tampa (where Romo just called the game) and Gramatica was quoted yesterday supporting him and calling on the team to retain him. Quite a confluence of kickers and kin in that contest.

Cowboys bungle it away again...

Giants can't even beat a winless team at home.

How are the Jets, Bills and NE all tied atop the AFC East?

Hope Watt for Houston and Odell-Beckham for NYG will be okay; the injuries looked bad, though.

Cleveland looking at a potentially winless year; they were getting a lot of love during the draft, now they're looking at another lost season and still have to pay a certain Denver backup.

Despite his best effort to lose it, Jacoby Brissett held his own in the Colts overtime game.

So-so Sunday; some good moments, though.

Strange season so far...

At least some things are consistent. The Niners and Brown are still incompetent, the Cowboys are still consistently inconsistent, and Bruce Ariens is still a cry-baby. Since absolutely everything which could go wrong for the Cardinals in the "Battle of the Carsons" apparently did his tear ducts were empty by the third quarter.

Roethlisberger threw five interceptions. How in the heck does that happen???

Guys, this lost really hurt.

This is the 2nd week in a row, the 'Boys scrore 30pts. and loose.

Their Defense is so bad without Sean Lee on the field, the three of us would have a chance of gaining 100yrds. rushing.

And don't get me started on the DBs. Well, now that I think about it, I can't complain. We lost both of our starting CBs, or starting SS and his backup, to Free-Agency.

We've got two rookie CBs starting with the CB with any experience roaming around the backfield out of position. We've got a new SS with a couple of years experience, but he couldn't cover me in a closet.

I heard OBJs injury is season ending. Not sure about Watt's yet.

I think it's time for Palmer to retire.

And, I don't think Ariens comes back next year. He's got a lot of health issues looming that'll have the both of them helping each other out the door.

He said in the press conference after the loss, "I'm not good enough any more."

I think Roethlisberger seriously considered retiring last year, and I think he will actually do so after this season. His heart just doesn't seem to be in it as much these days.

On a separate note, a toast to Y.A. Tittle, who died at 90 today. Great QB for San Francisco and NYG in the early 60s. Really tough and consistent, helped make the NFL into the sport it has since become.

Re: NFL Thread Pt. II

What an off-the-rails weird week. In fact, oddest season (so far) in years.

Jets give NE some serious competition, and NE helped by probably the worst officiating blunder of the year (you'll hear about it if you watch football at all).

Aaron Rodgers probably out for the year (and if it's collarbone, he should be, as you just can't rush back from that; ask Romo).

Miami beats Atlanta in Atlanta.

Chicago beats Baltimore in Baltimore.

NO and Det combine for something like 90 points.

Rams beat Jax on the road; Jax has alternated wins and losses every week so far.

The last unbeaten (KC) gets beaten in week 6.

One upset after another. And the rest are mostly close and competitive.

Just crazy times in the NFL.
