    NFL- Week 2

    Since I don’t recognize many Romans in the Pit, I’m using Arabic numerals. Hmmm, that brings another question for another time.
    First, I’m a homer so the Pack vs. the Vikes, well they didn’t lose, either one of them, neither did they win. It will be a big struggle from here on out to see who takes the div. There also is no cause for anybody to jump off any bridge, unless you are from Buffalo or Arizona. Although there probably not many bridges in the desert, but both teams look really bad. The Boys, well they were at home against the Giants who some are talking much improved. I don’t see it, & the Boys will be so-so to ok. Jax vs. NE, someone said this was Jax Super Bowl, I agree. They are a good football team with a good D & an ok QB. Hey MB, Denver now has a 2 game streak & Oakland will take awhile yet. Philly will be fine & Tampa Bay will have to be reckoned with. They were at home, adrenaline really flowin, & a QB playing out of his mind. But they will be giving Atlanta a run, along with Carolina, which was predictable as what turned out. KC’s flame throwing is really interesting. It even got Bonesy to trim his beard. Maybe it’s a sign. And it was AT Pittsburgh, who is in a little trouble.
    This just in as I was typing this, the Vikes cut their kicker “after 3 missed fgs”.
    The Rams look real tough, not as much SF against the hapless Lions. Again, bring back Tommy Hudspeth.
    Wash. has some real problems. Indy, Browns, Jets, Dolphins .500. NO a little better.

    No mention of my Bengals who have bern a pleasant surprise thus far (im not get excited too early though. Those steelers always seem to get better as the season goes on). Excited to see what Da bears do tonight. And Cleveland is a kicker away from being 2-0. I will not take them lightly but will still make jokes.

      Bengals are in it for the season with 2 good games Under their belt. I know it’s only 2 games, but important ones.

            • We have two weber kettle grills (one LARGE and one small/average), the SnS and the Weber Smokey Mountain 18" smoker. We use both natural lump charcoal and KNB for smoking and measure our temps with a Maverick 733, thermopen and MK4. Favorite beer depends on what is cooking (alt answer is yes).

            What?? Real problems in Washington???
            Norhing a new owner wouldn't solve. But instead Washington will get a new coaching staff and another couple years to get it implemented.
            Kinda like being a White Sox fan.
            There is always next year.
            And they broke a fifty year string of sell-out games.

            Pittsburgh... just felt like a repeat of the last what...5 years? Glimpses of greatness...but failure to close. So frustrating with so much talent...plus the cancer of greed dominating Le'veon Bell's mind. NFL is not a place for loyalty among players. I guess I get it to a degree...but I think the lack of franchise loyalty is a contribution to the steady decline of the NFL. Truly sad

              I was in attendance for both Steelers games. The Steelers sidelines were a mess. Temper tantrums, confused coaches, desperate speeches. To me it starts at the top. Lack of discipline, sloppy play, sloppy play calling. and that CRAP Zone defense.

              Sephon I'm definitely not the foremost expert in defenses, but I agree with you about that zone defense. I feel like offenses run all over us.

                The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
