KC is the most intriguing to me as They have been so hyped in the pre season, again.
I don't see it but I never watch them play outside the 2 games/year I have to.

Sure Jax isn't at all a juggernaugt but for a first of the season it will tell.

That was sweet. THe Chiefs are looking complete. Yes against a team that looks in complete disarray but still.

The Lion and Vikings game is ugly too.

Amendola already out injured too... :coffee:

I predicted that the Browns would go 4-12 or worse this year. Seeing the Browns lose to the Dolphins where Weeden threw for 3 interceptions (and had a fourth dropped) and Trent Richardson do nothing, only makes me feel even more certain about my statement.

Our DC did a horrible job planning for Pryor. I'm sayin' it....dude is almost unsackable. Multiple times, total coverage downfield, good veteran pass rushers closing fast (Walden, Mathis, Redding) and every time he splits out like a cheetah.

Blowouts aren't the goal, controlling the game is the goal, and we totally lost control.

Not to be a homer, but not one team has impressed me today that looks like a threat to our Broncos. Except for SF. I know it's only week one but every other AFC team looks subpar. Den and SF look in mid season form.

So far, Denver was the only team to dominate. A very scary storm has formed over the Rockies.

Think the Chiefs are much improved or just a function of playing the Jags? I think the AFC West is improved overall, but that includes the Broncos.

That's annoying as hell, when you can't get the guy no matter what. I'm just surprised the Raiders were as competitive as they were. Though Luck has the makings of one of those dreaded "don't give him the ball at the end of the game" types.

Possibly the biggest off-season acquisition. A true SB contender, last years NFCC game winner......and they have this freak of a receiver land in their laps? Wow.....he's gone full-beast today.

I am impressed with the Cardinals. They have a much improved offense with Carson Palmer. It's the first time this team plays with a serviceable QB since Kurt Warner retired.

NFC West is going to be the best division to watch play out. AFC North which is usually great, is 0-4 right now.

I agree. I also think the Steelers are going to regret giving up on Mendy.

They got a gift TD and won by 6. I wouldn't say they're the only team that looked good today.

As a matter of fact, I think they looked a little shaky, especially for being at home.

Neither team really impressed as a whole. Boldin did as a player...So glad he wasn't a Raven Thurs night.

Not a good day for ref Bill Leavy.

Dude better not handle any playoff games.

During a third-and-6 scramble by 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, a muddled enforcement where the difference was milliseconds wound up being a difference of four points. Packers linebacker Clay Matthews was flagged for a late hit on Kaepernick well after Kaepernick had stepped out of bounds. The two teams engaged in a small scuffle afterward, when the 49ers were hit with unnecessary roughness foul.

Because the Matthews foul was two steps after the ball was dead, the fouls were on the dead-ball side of the ledger, and the proper call is to offset the two fouls and the down counts. That would have given the 49ers a fourth down and a likely field goal situation.

Instead, Bill Leavy and the crew offset and replayed the down. The 49ers took another shot for the end zone, and they scored.

The change in enforcement is clearly defined, but a foul a half-second earlier would have a different enforcement. If the Matthews foul was a live-ball foul with Kaepernick in bounds (a different penalty, of course), and it is paired with the 49ers post-play foul as part of the continuing actions, then the fouls offset at the previous spot. Third down. Literally two steps made the difference on enforcement.

Not the only team that looked good, they were the only team that had a look that I worry that can beat us. With their weapons and defensive personnel they are the only team I don't want to see.

I know any given week we can lose, but as long as we stay healthy I'm very confident

Did anyone else think the passing numbers were even more inflated than usual this year? Ten 300 yard and three 400 yard passers to a measly two 100 yard rushers (only one of which is an actual runningback). Really? The top ten list of rushers for the week combined for a whooping three touchdowns. I know we finally have an elite passer but man, I really hate where the NFL is going.

It makes me sad.

I became a Bears fan in the 80's. Payton was the Offense, and a legend.

The NFL seems to want a game that's all flash and no dash. Brings the fairweather fans in I guess. But the purists...

It's a passer's league. You can win a lot of games without much of a run game. The league has helped by throwing flags with regularity. Contact with a QB or Receiver is a no no! Therefore Ds have to make smart choices when defending.

It's very tough to defend the pass.

Weird set of downs......The Packers accept a 5 yard penalty on the prior play, even though it was 4th and 1. I didn't get the reason. Maybe SF goes for it, but not likely. Probably saves them 4 points.

On the botched ref call, even though I'm a Packer fan, I thought Clay got lucky, because he looked more aggressive with Staley, and probably should have got another penalty.

But yah, I thought it was 4th down when it happened, instead of replay of down.

It's a passer's league.

"NFL quarterbacks combined for a whopping 63 touchdown passes on opening weekend, exceeding the highest total passes in any week in NFL history (58 in 2004 and 2007 late in each season)."

Really devalues passing accomplishments for me. Comparing Marino's records to the current day is no more fair than comparing 16-game records to 14-game ones.
