The Tailgate - Sports Central

Postby Honestcoins » Fri Sep 09, 2016

What do you guys and gals think of sustaining this thread as a central conversation point for all things football. I feel like right now there's about 5-10 different threads dedicated to football.

I'll start.

Vikings vs Titans. Expected to be a super run heavy game with few plays made on both sides.

Marcus mariota over or under 16 passes thrown?

Hiya HC, I agree, lots of running in this one. A war of attrition - whose defense is in better condition? may be that team that wins?
Cheers,

Missed calls happen, but 2 of the missed calls were really bad...and Seratore is usually a very good ref.

God I hope Troy pulls out a close win so that Clemson player has to delete all his social media. Dropping the ball at the goal line is like the unforgivable sin to me.

The San Fernando Crickets are playing today?

Pretty much garbage games (the early ones, anyway) today with the exception of the nutty hail mary by CMU over Ok State.

Cowboys definitely got the big weenie against one of those if-ya-can't-get-in-Ann-Arbor schools. But they should have had them already buried so..
T.Boone probably already has the hit out on that crew.

Should we have one thread for college and one for NFL?

Maybe, sure, I don't know? Seems like we don't have enough posts made for multiple sustained threads but I don't really care. I just want a place to have sustained conversations without having to dig for old threads.

So I'm killing it in our pickem league right now. Sadly my only wrong pick so far was the Titans loss. Mariota was looking brilliant in the first half, things were going great. Then the team self destructed. The play calling became so bland after they apparently emptied their entire bag of tricks in the first half.

The Int was a bad choice on his part. I'm not sure if the handoff fumble was Marcus fault or Demarcos. Considering Marcus has been doing the read option handoff his entire career I will give him benefit of the doubt because that isn't a problem he's ever had. Which would mean two fumbles for demarco...

Also fantasy football is amazing. Why haven't I been playing longer? Creates so much more interest in multiple games. Currently rooting for cowboys win with zeke touchdowns but with additional giants touchdowns caught by sterling shepherd.

My kicker earned me 16 points even after missing his first two field goals :-/

Whoever designed the Cowboys stadium should be unemployable. It is hard to catch a ball when all you see is blinding light.

Titan vs Vikings
Shaun Hill a pleasant surprise. Vikings defense woke up and dominated the second half. Turn overs took the steam out of the Titans. Good start for the Vikings, let's hope the offense can score some points next Sunday. :clap:

I am amazed at how many players on the sidelines are looking up at the jumbotron rather than the field during games in the Cowboys stadium.

In 2 pick em leagues, BS and Silverbugs. Saturday night I'm sitting around thinking why the hell do I have Dallas winning with a rookie QB and no defense? So I log in and change them up to the Giants. Imagine my surprise when I got check my teams today and discover that somehow I changed the pick out in Silverbugs and not in BS. So much for me being tied for 3rd :thumbdown:

How bout them Lions yesterday? They go up a touchdown, then miss the XP. Luck takes Colts down the field for the touchdown and go-ahead XP with 0:37 left. Two passes from Stafford (Theo Riddick, what a gamer) down to the 25 yd line. Prater redeems for missed XP with a GW field goal! Yesss!!!

Edit: Sorry Colts fans, tough home opener
