OT - 2019 NFL thread

In a shocking development, Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck announced his retirement from the NFL on Saturday night, saying constant injuries have taken away his love for the game.

He must have really taken that Colts preseason loss to the Bears tonight hard.

"It hurt," Luck said of hearing fans boo him. Brutal.

I’m actually glad for Luck’s sake that he’s taking some time away to let his body heal (I don’t believe for a second this retirement is permanent, though). There may never have been a more misnamed athlete.

We’re about to have a sudden, serious winnowing of good quarterbacks: Brady, Brees, Rivers, Roethlisberger will likely all retire within the next two years, Rodgers not far behind.

Andrew Luck you couldn’t have shared that news before I drafted you an hour ago? #andrewluck

Good for him - smart move. It's a rare ambition that pivots in this way.

Left 500 mill on the table? Whatever; he's probably got 50 mill in the bank or more. At the point, it doesn't have to be about the money. It's about playing with his kids and being able to walk later in life. Just look at Joe Montana. Tough.


NFL. Ban it.

Ravens 59-10 win over the Dolphins today was the first 59-10 score in NFL history. And if Lamar Jackson had thrown just one more TD pass, he would've equaled his entire 2018 total.

Can we all laugh at the Jets? They were up 16-0 on Sunday halfway through the 3rd. Since then, they gave up 17 unanswered points to lose at home to the Bills, their QB is out for the next game and maybe more with mono, and their star RB is getting an MRI and might be hurt. After their game Monday with the backup QB, they play Philadelphia, Dallas, and the Patriots twice over the following month.

The first sports book in Indiana just opened and they had Paul Hornung make the first bet.

While that makes for a funny story it isn’t true. I made a bet last week, as did hundreds of others. The Governor made the first bet on sept. 1. I think Hornung made the first bet at this particular book that just opened at the Horseshoe near Louisville.

Thanks for the correction; I guess Indiana is more depraved than I gave it credit for.

that is an example of a challenge that should be denied on general principle.

you're challenging pass interference on a 5 yard out? GTFOOHWTBS.

now, that's not to say the play wasn't pass interference (it was), but games would last 5 hours each if that kind of call gets overturned.


that rule exists for 3rd downs, for the red zone, the 4th quarter and downfield throws; it exists for egregiously missed calls that have a clear and obvious impact on the outcome of the game. it does not exist for a 5-yard out on 2nd down in the first quarter.

shot:
Through two games, Mahomes has completed 55 of his 77 attempts (71.4 percent) for 821 yards, seven touchdowns, and zero interceptions. That’s a shade better than 10.6 yards per attempt on significantly higher volume: If Mahomes keeps up this pace, he’ll pass for more than 6,500 yards—the NFL record is 5,477. And while the touchdown numbers have dipped, he’s still on pace for 56 of them, which would pass his 50 from last season and set a new single-season record.

chaser:
The Chiefs are 2-0 again, with wins over the Jaguars and Raiders

A reminder the Eagles can also play Josh McCown at WR.

ESPN covers a much discussed topic here through the years: Eli's Hall of Fame chances (to save you a click, the majority of writers polled consider it a no-brainer yes).

C'mon, Bears, let's shoot for 74-0. Records are made to be broken.

anyway, regarding the packers challenging a pass interference non-call against the eagles tonight:

i'm 90% sure that was defensive pass interference, but i'm also 25% sure it was offensive pass interference. before the defender made any contact, the receiver extended his arm, and he grabbed the defender's shoulder pad.

in light of that, i think the review itself was a 50/50 call. the defensive pass interference was pretty blatant, but if you consider the receiver to have also committed pass interference (i might be biased since the eagles have been penalized for offensive pass interference 7 times in the last 2 games), i don't think you can overturn the non-call on review.


also:
regarding the eagles not challenging a (fairly) obvious incomplete pass late in the 4th quarter: good for doug pederson. it was the difference between 2nd and 10 and 2nd and 2, which in this game, was completely inconsequential. even though the challenge was likely to be successful, if it wasn't, it would have cost the eagles their last timeout.

Lot of empty seats in Seattle. So Seattle is just as give up as any other fanbase when their team is losing big late. Good to know for when some Seahawk fan wants to tell me about the 12th man.

Great news for the burgeoning Jim Plunkett HoF bandwagon!

(Yeah yeah, two months late.)
