In addition to him not having a lot of reps with these receivers, do we think that all of Brady’s being in and out of practice is maybe having an effect as well? He does not have a lot of synergy with these receivers.

I would have gone for the TD. Too much emphasis on the one score game thing. If you lose you lose. Probably lose the other way too.

Ehh, made more sense to go from the 3 than from the 8. Don't fault Bowles there after the penalty.

Brady suddenly looks 45 and the D can't stop Lamar.... that's the main problem.

So watching this on Hulu via the Disney bundle.(Disney combining them is nice) All good, easy enough.

But I also have ESPN on another TV and they showed the Lawrence TD pass before it showed on the stream, because streams are always behind. Kind of lame.

The online game cast is also ahead of the stream. Annoying.

He has a history of playing through injuries he shouldnt ... this is probably in that category ...
The story about Russ doing leg raises on the plane while everyone else was sleeping was peak "Russ is an embarrassment".

What a douche. The best part, of course, is that the story became public because Russ is the one who made it public. He's just such a poser, it's really weird.

Jiminey cricket, that penalty was ridiculous.

Rooting for the Jags because Russ sucks but still, that penalty was atrocious.

Is the Russ trade and contract the worst in NFL history? I mean the competition is Watson at this point, right?

Which one?

The first flag was technically correct; the contact was below the waist. And it was in the open field, at the point of attack. The official would’ve gotten demerits if the flag didn’t come out there.

Not sure what happened on the taunting flag. The confrontation seemed mild, yet when the flag came out no one argued. Unless he crossed a red line (e.g., saying the n-word) that’s a soft call.

There’s a certain justice in Jacksonville coming up empty on that drive.

I have had this game on for only the second half so far. It is already so obvious why I watched the Manningcast whenever available last year. This booth is unlistenable. I don’t think I have listened to Manningcast once this year because I like Aikman.

Lawrence is 7th in DVOA entering today. He’s going to be a helluva QB when (if) he removes the big negative plays, such as that fumble, from his game.
