Not enough Peyton Manning stats, like number of times that he came directly on to the MNFs announce crew.

I can't wait till Denver plays a real team this year, but I don't think they do until the playoffs.

Only if you count the TD the refs spotted the Packers and not the one they spotted the Seahawks.

Quality trolling. Not that it's hard to troll Seattle fans.

So if he's 10-0 at home that puts him at what 4-5 on the road? Good thing the Super Bowl is in Seattle this year.

any team that beats the broncos is a real team is that it?  Defending superbowl champs and #6 in power rankings don't count?  How about Patriots in week 11 or 12?

Are people really still bitter over that game, especially since it ended up having virtually zero impact on the playoffs?
 
2013-09-24 10:41:01 AM
Wilson is very very good.

That being said, with Seattle's defense and Magic Stadium, I could probably put up a winning record there.  Not 10-0, though.

I was going to say the same thing, but the Ravens have yet to come close to their end of the season form from last year. However, I don't think there is a team in the AFC that is close to Denver at this point.

I think the Pats and Ravens will get things sorted out, and the Colts look good to win the AFC south.

When losing, Harbaugh abandons the run game too quickly.

There's going to be all sorts of speculation on ESPN as to what's wrong with the Niners.  Kaepernick's going to be dissected and everyone's going to wonder what's up with him.  It's not him.  It's the playcalling.

Frank Gore got 82 yards on 11 carries.  Dude needs 20 touches a game when he's running that well.  That'll open up the passing game, too.
 
2013-09-24 11:16:13 AM
Russell Wilson also holds the highest Passer Rating in the NFC.  Highest in the NFL going back to week 10 of last year.
 
2013-09-24 11:18:16 AM

js34603: So if he's 10-0 at home that puts him at what 4-5 on the road?


After the halfway point last year he has played very well on the road.  He wasn't that good in early losses last year to STL/ARI and SF.  Later losses to MIA, DET and ATL he played much better but the D gave up late scores.

I said it last season, but the 49ers will eventually figure this out, and it may not even happen this year: one of the problems with having a coach who treats you like an asshole is that, when you start losing, it's easy to say: "this coach is an asshole!"  We saw a bit of that with Gore fussing at Harbaugh.  The same thing happened with John Harbaugh last year, and he responded by laying off for a while.  The 49ers have been going "all in" for some time now on defense as well: their starters have played many more snaps than any other team in the league.  That sort of punishment will wear on someone, mentally and physically.

428: Rushing yards for Demarco Murray in two career games against the Rams
If only the Cowboys could play the Rams every weekend they might have a consistent running game. In two career games against St. Louis, Murray has carried the ball 52 times for 428 yards and two touchdowns. The Rams, who are much improved on defense under Jeff Fisher, cannot seem to solve the young Dallas running back. On Sunday he piled up 175 yards rushing on a career-high 26 attempts to go with his Cowboys' single-game rookie record 253 yards on 25 carries that he had against the Rams in 2011.

26+25=51.

I think both Harbaughs are jerks.  That said, I remember the St. Louis Rams biatching about their coach, Dick Vermeil, complaining he makes them work too hard, etc.  Later that football year, they won the Super Bowl.

No, it's the point in time that the coaching staff took the training wheels off.  It's when they started incorporating the read option.  There was a significant change in the offense and since then they have been very successful.

To expand on that.  He was 4th in the league last year.

Is that an acceptable time frame for you?  His NFL career?  Do I need to include college where he holds the highest season rating ever?  High school?  Pop Warner?

SF's defense held Wilson in check pretty good, they just couldn't stop Marshawn Lynch at all (running or recieving). The Hawks play the texans this weekend in houston (because fark west coast teams is the NFL stance) so we'll see if they can hold up, though the texans don't do too great against play off caliber teams, I mean they barely won against the chargers and the titans to open the season so far and got steam rolled by the ravens, still wouldn't be surprised if they can beat the hawks, especially if Seattle starts slow like they did against SF.

Well, I mean, one resulted on a TD on the same play, while the other did not. Plus, B.S. pass interference calls are incredibly common, while TOUCHCEPTIONS are not.

Really, the only thing that annoys me about it are those who don't understand the rules and think "simultaneous" possession applied in that situation. It did not. If it was the Packers on the other end of that call, you bet your britches I'd be on here saying "boy did we get gifted that win".

Flacco has totaled 63 regular season/postseason wins in his first five seasons in the NFL, the most of any quarterback in the Super Bowl era. Flacco is also the first quarterback in NFL history to win a playoff game in each of his first 5 seasons.

The AFC East was supposed to be the worst division in football heading into the season. After three weeks, the entire division is 9-3 overall with a perfect 4-0 record against the NFC.

After three weeks, the entire division is 9-3 overall with a perfect 4-0 record against the NFC. The wins have come against quality NFC competition with wins over Atlanta, Carolina and two over Tampa - teams that combined for 34 wins last year...

ATL: 13-3 (15-4 including play-offs)
CAR: 7-9
TAM: 7-9

That's some fuzzy math, including Tampa's record twice in order to make it sound like those NFC teams won more games than they did. I know it's early in the season, but none of those teams are playing especially good. ATL looks ok, of course, but you'd be hard-pressed to find anyone that considers Tampa quality.
