Re: 2017 NFL Regular Season Thread -- Week 01

Well, there is the war chant. Do they do the tomahawk chop too? I always hated the Braves for those.

As a Broncos fan I had to sign a contract obligating me to hate the Chiefs. No contract needed for the Raiders. That hate starts at birth.

"...with a passion" may have been a bit of an exaggeration but if it weren't for the Patriots, I never would have liked to see a division rival walk away with a victory.

That's the one thing Broncos and Chiefs fans can agree on.

This season here in Vegas, the paper and local TV stations have started covering the Raiders like they're our local team with in-depth reporting and interviews with unremarkable players and the like. I knew I'd be inundated with that shit three seasons from now, but didn't anticipate it already. The shovels haven't even hit the earth yet (and they have no clue where anyone is going to park and apparently don't care). They're totally dominating the local sports news over the Vegas Golden Knights that just opened rookie training camp less than five miles from my house and starts the regular season in a month.

Speaking of Vegas, love the VSiN 2-hour pre-game with Brent Musburger. Streaming on YT (and on SiriusXM 204).

Will have to make a road trip to the South Point on an upcoming visit.

Re: 2017 NFL Regular Season Thread -- Week 01

I like how Janikowski fought with the Raiders over his restructured contract and then almost as soon as he agrees with them, he is put on the IR with a suspected bulging disc. Why bother restructuring the contract with him in the first place instead of just cutting him? No other team is going to pony up for a kicker that can't actually go out there and kick.

Cousins coughs it up on the 50. He'll have 400+ when the Skins are down 21.

Allen Robinson in the locker room with a knee injury, questionable to return.

EDIT: And now Danny Woodhead doubtful to return after a hamstring injury.

Thank you, Eagles, for that absurd play.

Thankful that I wasn't desperate enough to start either.

Doesn't seem like there's been much fantasy scoring so far except for defenses. All the point totals are still driven by Hill, Hunt, and Gillislee.

This is a wild game so far (Skins/Eagles), an entertaining mess.
