One of my least favorite things during football season is looking at the schedule and thinking "Wow, it's already week ..."
Yes, the season is flying as per usual. Does that mean we have to be sad because it's week 6? No. There's still a lot of football left on the schedule, so let's enjoy it while it lasts. COVID could easily wipe out the NFL with one Thanos snap.
1. STEELERS DOMINANCE OVER THE BROWNS CONTINUES
Man oh man.... talk about getting abused by your big brother. The Browns had a chance to show the NFL they're for real. This game was huge for Cleveland considering what happened the last time they squared up.
There weren't any skulls bashed in by helmets this time around. Instead, the Steelers bashed the Browns into the ground. Even though the Steelers scored 38 points, it seemed like they couldn't get the offense fully going. Although it didn't end up mattering much as their defense made up for it. You hate to see a player like Devin Bush go down with a torn ACL, but the Steelers D has looked so electric that it might not even matter.
As for the Browns, what a nut-kick loss. This was a statement game, and there was no statement made. Here's my stat of the day: the Steelers have a 17 game home winning streak vs. the Browns. The last time the Browns beat the Steelers in Pittsburgh was October of 2003. It's incredible how a franchise can assert so much dominance over their opponent for 17 years.
Is it time to panic on Baker? When the Browns can't run, he's a completely different QB. He's not a guy who instills fear in the souls of the opposing defense when he has the ball in his hands. He was playing with a rib injury, so I'll give him a pass.... for now.
2. IT'S OFFICIAL, THE JETS ARE THE WORST TEAM OF ALL TIME
I hate beating a dead horse, but how does the NFL allow the Jets to play at a professional level?
To start, I'm going to say something nice about the Jets.
This was a cool play.
I have nothing else to say about this franchise. A gutless and pathetic football team that should be ashamed. I think Adam Gase knows he's done. He's a dead man walking who doesn't even try anymore.
What's the point of game planning when you get blown out by two touchdowns every game? The tweet below speaks for itself.
The only reason Gase is still employed by the Jets is to secure the 1st overall pick. It's a good strategy to lock up Trevor Lawrence.
3. AARON RODGERS GETS DOMINATED AFTER SHOWING OFF HIS COCK
Things were looking good for the Packers until Rodgers flexed on the Bucs for a touchdown that got called back.
He was never the same after that. Did Rodgers curse the Packers after he showed off his pelvic thrust? Maybe, but the Bucs defense harassed him all game and prevented him from getting in a rhythm with any of his receivers.
Brady and the Bucs bounced back nicely after the shit show against the Bears last week. Lavonte David and Devin White are absolute monsters that need to be talked about more. Gronk looks like he can barely bend his knees but somehow keeps on making plays.
I know it's been a while, but the Gronk spike isn't what it used to be. What's good with that weak ass spike?
So the Rodgers MVP comeback tour has come to a screeching halt. I can't call the Packers frauds, but I'm definitely going to circle this game when we ask ourselves if the Packers are good. Let us all doubt him until he's back throwing 400 yards for 4 TDs in our face.
4. EAGLES FANS GET INTO A BRAWL WITH ONLY 7,500 IN ATTENDANCE
It was the first game Eagles fans were allowed back. They didn't miss a beat by immediately starting a fight in the stands.
With everything that's wrong with the world, it's nice to see some things never change. There was a sense of comfort when I saw this video. COVID can impact a lot of things, but it can't stop irrationally angry Eagles fans from fighting fans of the opposing team.
Let's not forget Eagles fans fought Philadelphia 76ers player Mike Scott last year.
It doesn't matter who you are. If you're against the Eagles, you're against Philly. Which only means one thing: you're going to get your ass kicked.
5. CAN FOX STOP WITH THE GRAPHICS?
I'm not sure what's happening with Fox's broadcast but it's starting to creep me out. Did they hire ESPN's production manager with these graphics?
Ignore the number of children stat because it's irrelevant to what we're talking about. Why did they make Burrow and Rivers look like they're on their 3rd cycle of steroids?
The real crime here has got to be the touchdown graphics they've been using.
If we could trash the animated faces, our viewing experience would improve tenfold. Get it together Fox. Let's go back to the basics.
