Update: Ha, ha, ha. Did I say 8-8? It'll be 4-12. But at least the Lions and Browns won.
After last week’s Chiefs-Broncos game, my enthusiasm for football has kinda crashed. I mean, it was a good game and they were in it until the end, but I’ve seen this team before. They look like an 8-8 or 7-9 team. The coaching is bad, the QB can’t stop overthrowing receivers, the secondary is just bad, missed tackles are a way of life, they can run the ball well but it doesn’t lead to enough scoring, I could go on and on. It reminds me of the last three years of Shanahan with Jay Cutler. I’m still planning to watch, but football nihilism has overtaken me. I have other things going on in my life right now that are holding way more interest, so I’m more likely to turn off the game if it’s a bad one. As for the Chiefs, they look like they always do. They will be phenomenal all season long and then bite it hard in the playoffs. But I will say that Patrick Mahomes looks like he’s for real.
Just the one early CBS game for us and it’s naturally the Broncos-Jets game. Over on Fox we’ll get Packers at Lions followed by Vikings at Eagles. Of these three I find myself more interested in the Packers-Lions game. Honestly, I think I’m going to do housework instead. Sunday Night’s game is Cowboys at Texans? Pass. Monday Night is Redskins-Saints, and I have nothing to say about that one either.
I look through the rundown of games and I really only see one good game: the Jags at the Chiefs. Am I wrong? Just seems like a blah week.
