Been more news accountings of who wore who's name and/or who will wear who's name on their helmet the future than there has been news on last weeks or Sunday's game...

Ruger, I agree. I don't think the NFL really understands what BLM as an organization is all about. And you are right, BLM is a Marxist bunch of hate mongers. They don't want racial equality, they want black supremacy. That being said, I'm watching football and tuning out the rest.

You really think the NFL doesn't understand what BLM is all about??? I'm pretty certain there are some pretty smart guys at the NFL.....they perfectly well understand. I'm not going any further into it in this thread.. I don't want to derail a fan page thread...but the NFL understands, you can bet on that. All of their actions are based on what they perceive to be best for their bottom line.

Well it was a stupid decision to divide the fans in half honoring Rose. Their ratings definitely took a hit from all the kneeling and they lost even more fans due to teams putting the names of criminals on the back of their helmets.
I will still watch but the politics have definitely hurt my passion for the game. Sports are supposed to be an escape and entertainment. Instead they are pandering to the “ woke” fan base and alienating those who don’t agree with their message.

They need to either eliminate completely or greatly reduce the number of running plays that get Connor or Snell going sideways across the formation.

Too many of those East/West plays are getting strung out for little gain or negative yards. Bang it up un there straight ahead seems to work better with our RBs. They are not LeVeon in his prime.

But 2-0 is 2-0. Texans coming in 0-2 will be desparate, so better be on the "A" game.

Wasn’t overly impressed with them but 2-0 is still a great start. Taking zero preseason games into consideration they should only continue to improve.

I think the NFL understands, but I doubt the players do. Most of them, anyway. The name on the helmet thing came from management, not the players. It is all optics on the NFLs part. The league will do what it believes makes it look the best (which should help the bottom line, as you said).

I thought they were sloppier this week than last. Too many penalties. I dont think Bush had a very good game. I would say that Dupree and TJ are justifying their salaries.

As Ben gets his game face back I would like to see a few more down field passes to a group of good hand receivers, tight ends and I believe this would help open the running game.....

I agree totally. I wonder if this is the influence of Matt Canada? When he was the OC at Pitt, he was in love with the jet sweep, and lots of motion and misdirection plays. Maybe that works at the collegiate level, but it's not looking good at the pro level.

Some dubious play calls and a bit of a discombobulated win, but a W none the less.

Stop with the cuteness and attempts at trickery. Jalen Samuels on 3rd and four feet on the opening drive? Uh, no.

O-line stepped up and good team win against a good, desperate team. Imagine being a Bears fan watching Trubisky get benched today.......ouch. Watson and company have played 3 really good teams this year.

Beyond the Samuels run, I would like to see this kind of diversity in the running game become the norm. It would have to lessen Connors chance of getting hurt. Plus McFarland is too good to get one touch per game. It was real nice that the play selection was about 50-50 and, going forward, in games like that, I'd love to see the distribution of work more like that and less like a "feature back" kind of thing.

I don't think the Texans schedule so far could have been much harder. I believe their record doesn't reflect how good they actually are.

I think the Steelers have much room for improvement, and hopefully we'll see that. I'm glad they're 3-0 after the way they've played. My beefs are with the offense, and particularly with Ben. I'm hoping those games were the equivalent of pre-season tune-up games. Sounds like this Sunday's game will be postponed. Anxious to see when they'll play it.
