    Time to get this bitch going. I say it every year, preseason or not it's something. GB get the Titans at home in a week.

    I started listening to fantasy football podcasts about a week ago, I'm all jacked up for the season to start.

    I didn't get to see any of that game because I don't live there, or near there. Suckage.

    Baker had quite the debut. Impressive.

    I am just so glad it's back. It's like coming out of hibernation.

    All the pieces are in place for the Vikings to make a serious run at the SB.

    Naturally, it's all going to come crashing down, ala 2001, 2010, 2016...

    Fun fact: In 2000 the Vikings made it to the NFCCG only to be blown out by an NFCE team. In 2001 the Vikings were hailed as contenders, but then in preseason their starting right tackle died and the Vikings limped to a 5-11 season. In 2017 the Vikings made it to the NFCCG only to be blown out by an NFCE team. In 2018 the Vikings are hailed as contenders, but then in preseason their offensive line coach died. Based on this, I'm predicting a 2018 Vikings record of 7-9.

    What a snoozefest. Flag after flag after flag didn't help either. It picked up a little in the second half but not enough. I know there are rule changes every season now but that was a big part of the reason it was a sucky game. The officials trying to implement the new rules kept the game at a very slow pace.

    I don't know, watching Steve Sarkisian slowly get himself fired was kind of fun. If he doesn't fucking figure out how to come up with some creativity in the red zone, he'll be looking for another job by week 5. God, that was awful.

    All true but the flags didn't help. They never do though.

    Enjoyed the first solid hit of the Red Zone today... was awesome!

    Even better, DAZN (Canada's NFL Package) carries EVERY game this year... including Sunday and Monday night games.

    That means that I can enjoy GB vs CHI right now.

    Woot!

    Uh oh... someone better put @shegirl on suicide watch...

    Rodgers was just helped, limping, to the sidelines after a sack... then taken off on the cart.

    What a game. Rodgers made some incredible throws on those scoring drives, and the mobility he showed was his usual self. Pretty impressive on that but leg. Although, Collinsworth makes it sound like he won the Super Bowl while carrying a baby through fire after getting a leg amputated.

    Yeah, it was impressive, no doubt... largest point deficit to come back from in the history of the 2 clubs playing (over 100 years).

    Collinsworth definitely has a big man-crush thing going on tonight...

    My favorite NFL stat of the weekend, shown during a post-game interview with Josh Gordon after the tie with Steelers:
    Cleveland (0-0-1) best start since 2004

    Holy fuck. That was the biggest rollercoaster of a game for me, I've watched yet. When he went down I was in shock, not just about the hit but who delivered it and that dudes story. Then the back up comes out.... who is that guy? I actually think if they would have let him throw it may have gone a bit better for him. Que me looking at the SO with like 2 minutes left in the half saying, "Fuck I'm lucky it's only 10-0." I shouldn't have opened my mouth because moments later another TD.

    Second half...who's that over there. No fucking way. OK but no way he's coming back in the game. Yeah. Impressive to say the least. I was yelling, jumping up and down, clapping and just being all around freaked the fuck out. So much so it got the dog doing zoomies, she stepped on my little baby toe and I'm pretty sure it's broken but I'll take it for the pure excitement of seeing that game. No cart for me and my pinky toe.

    Now the wait to see what exactly happened and the effect on next week against the Vikes, at home.

    Two games tonight. God bless football being back.

    Yeah... best I heard was, "and the Browns break their 2 year losing streak, by not winning."

    They're sure keeping it up today... under 2 minutes, and a missed extra point to keep the game tied.
