Dallas exposed Denver's defense badly today.  I don't care that Von Miller's coming back since he's made a career of disappearing in big games against good teams and that was when he was on HGH.  Denver still has road games at Indianapolis and at San Diego plus a 15-day stretch of Kansas City twice sandwiching a trip to Foxboro.

 

Patriots defense played great again but the offense...  The offense looks like an offense that's built around 2 athletic all-pro TE's but one happens to be in jail and the other has been changing his tampon for the last 3 weeks.  Hence the Pats early season ineffectiveness especially in the red zone where Gronk is a monster weapon.  The problem today is when the weather becomes a monsoon the entire field becomes the red zone with good defenses loading-up on the run and playing press coverage knowing the elements and the lack of explosiveness in the Pats receiving corps won't cost them deep.

 

Gary Kubiak will be the first coach fired in the NFL this season.  Houston has been god-awful since they were emasculated in Foxboro late last year and that carried into the playoffs and now into this season.

 

Sucks that the Pats lots, but in the week-to-week NFL, sh!t happens, and besides, the Pats were hardly dominant in going 4-0...some breaks were going to go against them eventually. 

 

I'm actually pretty optimistic, in that the Pats have somehow managed to allow just 70 points through five games.  The big test will come against the Saints of course (and I expect the Pats to give up 30+ in that one)...but if they somehow hold that team to 20 points or so, I'll start believing in them...a little. 

 

Gronk, get the fvck back on the field for Week 6.

Impressed with the Eagles today. They overcame a brief Giants uprising and wrestled that game back. I really can't stand Cruz with all his yapping at the refs after every incomplete pass.
 
Miami really needs a bye with those injuries on D. I know Carroll and Wake went out of the game today. Wake was already playing banged up though.
 
Tannehill is pretty solid. He came up with some big plays...but they did sort of botch the end of the game...you can't settle for 57 yards to tie.

Its the o-line, they're horrible. On the 3rd down that made it a 57-yarder, Tyson Clabo got backed into the QB (as he always does) by Suggs, resulting in a 5-yard loss. Otherwise it would've been a 52-yarder. Still a long kick, by makeable for Sturgis. Tannehill played great yesterday, over 3 bills, a TD, no turnovers, and all while spending most of the afternoon on his back or trying to avoid being on his back and every a$$hole on the field dropping passes. The o-line needs to be addressed during the bye, its ridiculous already. And indeed the bye comes at a good time, we need to heal up on D.

It was too long to go for it on 4th and 1 anyway, more like 1 1/2 and the team sucks short-yardage.  Might as well have taken the delay of game and saved the timeout that deep in.


Wow, that's why this D is overrated.  Can't even get a turnover when they GIVE it to you.

Probably a little harsh, was kind of bang-bang, and damn if those footballs don't take some screwy bounces at times.

In fairness the D actually played well in the first half other than the missed turnover opportunities.  But it's asking a lot to week after week expect the D to hold teams under 20 points when they don't create turnovers and take all sorts of penalties themselves.

 

WTF was Mike Smith doing going for it on 4th down at the end of the half though.  A HUGE difference between 17-7 and 17-10 going into the locker room, especially with the Jets getting the ball at the start of the 3rd.

Looks like the AFC East is coming dangerously close to fvcking up Atlanta's season. 

 

Don't look now, but the NY Jets are seriously flirting with relevancy.  At they very least, even if they lose tonight, they made both NE and Atlanta work hard for their wins.

The secondary still worries me down the stretch (Ryan's like 24-27 so far) and isn't good overall besides Cro...but yeah I thought this would be a **it-housing.  It is nice to finally see - so far - what happens when the QB doesn't turn it over three times a game for us though.

What's interesting about this is, if the Jets decide to part ways with Rex Ryan should the Jets go 7-9 or 6-10 (I'm not sure how they could let him go if he goes 8-8 with a QB who was clearly green to start the year), Ryan might be able to get another head coaching gig, instead of having to be a defensive coordinator again.

Wow...the Jets deserve credit for what they're doing, but this is a disaster for the Falcons.  Potential back-to-back home losses, and three straight overall to the AFC East.  The losses are at least out of conference, which takes a teeny amount of the sting out, but that's a team that NEEDS its home wins in the worst way.

Predictably, the D lets the Falcons go right through them.  Predictably, the Jets' offense goes three and out.  We know how this script usually ends :P

While I am happy right now that it's at the Jets expense this time, I really wish that something could be done about ticky tack pass interference and holding penalties.  It's just an invitation for the refs to call it whenever they want.

 

I think Gruden is right that pass interference ought to be something blatant.  Perhaps the trade off is that offensive holding be given the same treatment.  At that point, the game might actually be decided by the players a little more often.

Atlanta getting carved up...not sure why any Jets fans would be so quick to bail in this spot...lots of time left, all three time outs, only need a FG.


Win or lose, terrific game for Geno Smith.
