NFL Week 1 Thoughts


A play is a process? That's the stupidest rule ever.


The Lions won that game. Done and done. Whatever happened to "the ground can't cause a fumble?"


Who cares if the receiver goes to the ground or not? The question was and always should be, "did he have possession and then two feet inbounds while maintaining possession?" As soon as those qualifiers are met, the catch should count.


DJ Gallo on ESPN.com wisely calls this "A rule as dumb as the tuck rule ... but for receiving! YAY!"


Alright. I'll let that go for now. Other than that, I can't help but think Dime Brothers' NFL Preview article is pretty on target right now. I think I should have every confidence after only one week of NFL action.

The Calvin Johnson catch that's ruled not a catch.

After week 3 there will only be 3 undefeated teams left!

NFL Week 4
After week 4 there is only Kansas City that's undefeated. But they already had a bye week (no game). Bye weeks this early in the season seem idiotic....

No more undefeated teams in the NFL. That was quick.

I haven't watched football this year, but it seems that teams are inconsistent and there's no real juggernaut.

All NFL teams have at least 2 losses. The best winning percentage is .750 (6-2).
