Amusing how the Steelers tying the Browns in Week 1 would ultimately cost them the division.

Tying the Browns this year wasn't as disgraceful as losing to the Raiders and Broncos.

Antonio Brown is a loon. And an exceptionalism. According to himself, anyway.

I went to my first Packers regular season game last weekend. Drove the about 9 hours to see Rodgers get hurt on the second possession and the Packers get shut out at home for the first time in like 50 years. And it was cold as [expletive]. Lambeau is an unbelievable experience - almost spiritual - but I also forgot how awful NFL games can be in person. There is so much standing around waiting for TV breaks to end.

You know what's ironic, your first Packers game is eerily similar to my first game at Lambeau, also. Mine was the Sunday after Thanksgiving 2006, when the Patriots were in town. Brady whalloped the Pack 35-0. Favre was actually injured in the 2nd Quarter and the rookie Aaron Rodgers came out to finish the game. It was also cold as balls.

The wife's first game was a playoff victory game against the Giants in January 2017 (there are pictures on here somewhere). Now THAT was one hell of a game. We did the Hall of Fame museum and the stadium tour - I highly highly recommend both of those if you didn't catch them this time if/when you go back.

This weekend's picks
Houston -1.5
Seahawks +2 (my best bet)
Chargers +2.5
Eagles +6.5

I would only play the 'hawks and Eagles.

Good breakdown list for which coaches are interviewing for which teams.
