Rich Gannon is hopelessly stupid.

I just turned on Packers Bucs. Has this been a bad day for A--A-Ron or is the Bucs D just playing well?

Not exactly a hot take, but the 2020 Jets are the worst team of all-time.

It all went to crap for the Packers since Rodgers' McCringleberry TD celebration

Bucs also made the adjustments on defense, Rodgers is struggling to figure it out.

Yes he is an idiot. What happened shows exactly why the Texans went for 2. Almost a risk free attempt to win the game. And to one’s surmise they lose without event seeing the ball again. Making that conversion was only way Texans win.

As a Texans fan, their last offensive drive was beautiful. At least there’s that.

Texans may have lost, but I think they looked better than they have at any other point this season, at least from when I've watched.

I agree with that but at 1 and 5, it’s all over for this year.

My new favourite is listening to every announcer say “that’s why I wouldn’t have gone for 2” after a statistically correct attempt that fails

Wont last long, but if anybody would have told me the Bearsvwoykd be leading the division at week 6 I would have assumed Rodgers was injured for 4 of them

Also, Brady us awfully quick to shake hands with Rodgers after a win... snubbed Foles the week before though

What would you have said if someone told you that the team with arguably the worst defence in NFL history through 5 weeks was first in the NFC and the only remaining undefeated team?

They must have had a pretty light schedule

Kidding aside, the Seahawks have been very impressive in that sense, but I've seen Rodgers put a horrible defense on his back too and end up with some pretty great records

The Chiefs got to OT of the AFC Championship game against the eventual champs with a 31st ranked defense. If you have a QB playing at Wilson's level, it's about points allowed, turn overs and critical stops. The other numbers are pointless. Reason for concern....yes, but Corsi treats his Seahawks worse the same way I treat the Chiefs. I think the Seahawks will be the 3rd straight NFC West team to get to the Superbowl. Russ is cooking. But who know's still lot's of season left. Tampa Bay looked great today.

Titans and Steelers in the AFC both looking good. Short week, not much practice and the Titans managed to pull it off. Every week, the Steelers offence looks a bit better and that defence is as good a unit as there is. Those two are right there with Baltimore and K.C. at this point...but I learned last you are not out of it...even the Texans, teams start 1-5 and still get in, happened twice in the past 6 seasons.

For as bad as the over-all numbers are, for as poorly as they've played at times, the Seattle D has one or two critical plays in every game so far.

To be fair, I think there's still time for improvement. I mean they're not going to be good, but maybe they can be not-awful. Adams is coming back, and they have Snacks Harrison to improve the pass rush. Hopefully that frees up Reed to do a bit more damage, given that he won't be the sole guy the other side needs to worry about.

I think if they remain this bad, they won't do anything. If they can get a bit better, just 10% better against the pass, that will matter a lot.

Thing is, that could be a lot of luck.
