    I rate this matchup as even. The Chargers have too many injuries to key personnel. MW may not play. Our secondary is a shambles, our linebacking corps is shaky and our LT shouldn't be starting in the NFL.

    The arguments I've seen from the Lion fans is mostly non-football... the Chargers are flying east and the Lion players are looking to make up for blowing their lead against AZ. I think a lot will ride on how Stafford plays. He's paid like a top 10 QB, but at times he's pretty average. Talent and coaching edge is with the Chargers.

    Lions fans say they will win because... just because. Lynn is a far better coach and to me that is worth a lot .

    Patton called up from the PS. Yes! Been wanting to see what he can do in a real game. Hope he gets a few targets tomorrow.

I learn something new each and every visit and for that, I truly love you all.



    Utter nonsense. The Jags appear primed to remain cellar dwellers in 2019. 2017, their lone good (decent) season, looks very much like an outlier at this stage. Now that they're starting a rookie QB, they're going to contend for a division title??? Just wait until Minshew faces-off against a legitimate NFL defense.

    If there was even a minute threat that Watson could play a full 16 games, MAYBE. But the way he continually exposes himself, there's very little reason to expect he makes it through the season, let alone into the playoffs. Tunsil was a turnstile in week one and Watson was sacked six times. SIX TIMES. He also took 11 hits. 11! Now, I realize he hasn't had time to properly acclimate, but he was outplayed (arguably) by Trent Scott. TRENT SCOTT!

    Last season, the Texan's strength of schedule was ranked 32nd. This year? 3rd.

    Goooood luck with that. Sans Clowney, teams are now free to double-up on Watt, greatly hindering his impact. With a now depleted front 7, and an offensive line that remains leaky, not allowing Watson to establish consistent offensive production, the Texans are trending down hard.

    Watson-Hopkins-Stills kept them in the game last week, but that (albeit impressive) trio's lifespan seems suspect.

    Predictably, the NFL's legion of beer-soaked, ball-watchers has been seduced by the Texan's (admittedly sexy) skill positions group and I for one could not be more grateful. Likewise, the shear (on paper) potential of the Jaguar's all-star, defense is certain to lead many an aspiring handicapper down the primrose path (again) this season, which is also very sweet.

    Fortunately, no one gives a damn what I think (nor, perhaps, should they) and I wouldn't have it any other way. Regardless, that division, barring catastrophic injury, seems far more likely to come down to Colts - Titans from my perspective. If I had to choose, I would take the Colts, if only because of the (superior) talent surrounding Brissett, and the fact that he looks like a better pure passer than Mariota. The Titans might not get waxed as bad this year by the Colts, as they did in 2018, but, at least as it stands, I certainly see no good reason to favor the Titans in either of their matchups this season.

    This should put the Bolts opening day, overtime victory in a different light for some, especially given the key components missing (James, Okung, M. Davis, T. Williams, M. Gordon).

    CBS broadcast map. Chargers-Lions is the yellow. Kevin Harlan and Rich Gannon are the announcers.

    A close or ugly victory with no further injuries. Ideally I would take a blowout victory with no injuries but beggars can't be choosers.

    The Colts "passing game" will have no chance against Jags secondary. Indy's best chance is to run the ball. But 1-dimensional offenses can be stopped. Indy can pray that rookie Minshew turns the ball over... but reality is, Jags above average OL will dominate that below average DL of Indy's. Fournette should feast.

    The Texans traded for Tunsil. Once he's acclimated, the pass protection will improve for the Texans. Nuke vs Piere Desir... ouch! Unless the Colts can clone Hooker, the rest of the Colts secondary blows hard (see what I did there?) Colts IDL is almost as bad as their secondary. Colts have good (but aging) pass rushers, a very good LB in Leonard, and good deep range coverage (Hooker). But if your CB's can't cover short/mid areas, then your pass rush is nullified. If your IDL can't keep fatties off your LB's... you're in trouble. Colts defense has too many glaring holes. Decent scheming/reads should easily defeat the Colts D.

    Titans... see Jags. Run the ball down Colts throats. Take advantage of below-average CB's with shorter routes.

    Brissett will be challenged by some good defenses this year. We'll see how he does. He'll be going against some good pass rushes and some good secondaries. He's unproven and teams will stack the box and make Brissett beat them. Color me skeptical... AJ Bouye, Jalen Ramsey, Calais Campbell, Yannick Ngakoue, Josh Allen, Jurell Casey, Cameron Wake, Logan Ryan, Kevin Byard, Malcolm Butler, JJ Watt, Whitney Mercilus, Joseph/Roby/Gipson/Reid... good luck young man...

    I've done some research on their OL. Ragnow is pretty solid but the rest of their OL is inconsistent at best. Their situation actually mirrors ours in that they are trying to be a more run oriented OL to make up for their weakness at pass protection. Heck old OL coach in Jeff Davidson and all too.
    Besides I technically got a 50% chance of being right if you don't include ties into the equation
