Now that he’s not in NE I don’t care how well he does. He was autodrafted as my QB this year, so I hope he balls.


He might....has always used the “chip” well

I was shocked how much ratings fell for the opener.  Despite waiting anxiously for the season for months, I had 0 interest in the game and thought the bits I watched were boring.  Granted, I don't watch many games outside of the Steelers any more.

IMO, they've made it too tough to play defense in the NFL and it's hurting the product.

How much were they down by? I keep seeing more and more “you’ve lost a life long fan!” rants on Twitter and I always chalked them up as tools. But maybe there’s a lot of them and they’re sticking with it? 

As for Thursday’s game, I just don’t have any interest in watching beat downs. I’d rather watch a close game between two shitty teams than the Chiefs up 31-7 in the 4th quarter.

12-13%.  To be fair, not sure KC and HOU are the biggest draws.  Last year's opener was GB vs. Chicago, so apples to oranges.  But I expected a sports-starved country to watch anything.

It also went up against the NBAs biggest draw in the playoffs and the NHL playoffs. Plus every team in MLB (vs half the league eliminated) and the US Open tennis. 

A 20.3 rating vs 22.1 or whatever last year is 12% drop, but it’s also a massive, massive number (and before the OOH viewers factor in). It’s still higher than 1-2 of the openers going back 10 years.

The New York Jets will have a winning record.

I retract this prediction and will go with 0-16 instead.

-12% might actually be a fairly strong number when you consider all that.

The Steelers finish in last.

I was way off on this one. I thought that the Ben that we have seen the last month would be the Ben that we would see for the entire season.

Jacksonville will likely finish 1-15 so I wasn’t too far off.

A high profile QB will miss 1-2 games as he pops positive for COVID. 

Good call. Lamar missed one, probably should have been two.

The NFC East has the worst record a division has ever had.

This seems like great prediction
