    ??? I never saw it at -6.5.

    The on-line casinos I use had the line up a few hours after the game and the open was -3.5 on all of them. The public has thrown money on Dallas all week so far, moving it to 4.5 I think it will be back at 4 or 3.5 again by Sunday, when the pro gamblers make their moves. The pros haven't been putting money on Dallas since the early '90s.

    Looks like defensive coordinators are snatching up the head coaching positions. The Bills signed Carolina coordinator Sean McDermott, and the Broncos signed Dolphins coordinator Vance Joseph.

    Atlanta has our old DC. Seems to have worked for them.

    Well, one of them. Gus Bradley didn't fare nearly as well in Jacksonville.

    I think Atlanta would have that one, with minimal issues.


    Otherwise:

    New England
    Pittsburgh
    Atlanta
    Green Bay

    Softly goes the coda.

    I think that's a joke.

    But I can't be sure.

    I googled it and most picks I saw had the usual lighting bolt. Hard to believe they'd completely change the helmet logo to that boring crap LA logo. That might be the new team logo but not the helmet logo.

    Too many great logo jokes on the Internet. Here's a link to a few.

    Congrats to the city of San Diego for standing up to the NFL.

    The idea that these billionaire owners and a league that basically prints its own money need to hold up cities that can't even pay their public workers' pensions for stadiums, is appalling.

    LA didn't want one team, much less two, and it's fairly predictable that the Chargers will be looking to fleece some other city in a few years when they look to leave LA.

    Montreal gets fleeced every couple of years by the FIA. Ecklestone always threatens to take the Montreal Grand Prix away unless we throw more money at them, and we always cave. It's a huge money weekend for this city. Not on par with an NFL franchise but...

    Favorite commentary on the new logo thus far: 'It looks like a sperm cell attacking a pair of pants.'

    Apparently now it's a "work in progress" , meaning they'll trash the entire thing and start from scratch...

    I never liked the lightning bolt logo either btw...

    Correct. Their logo has not been approved by the NFL... yet.

    The (UCLA-Derived) AFL Los Angeles Chargers uniforms were awesome, IMO.

    Big fat yellow bolt on a white helmet with the number on it, and the lighter blue uniforms.

    What's not to like?

    Of course, it' the NFL, so why stop at a single logo or uniform set - especially for a team that isn't expected to perform well. locally?

    They'll probably have 8 different uniforms and multiple helmet logos.

    As awesome as that would be, the NFL has some stupid "one shell" rule, so each team can only have one helmet per season.

    Yeah, those Chargers unis were some of the best ever, but I prefer the way they do the throwbacks now and drop the numbers.
