    The injury situation with NYG is now becoming just comical.

    It's not a matter of courage. It's one of ignorance.



    That New England/Dallas game yesterday was fantastic. Except for the outcome, of course.

    Dan Orlovsky calls the Browns the most disappointing team in the NFL.

    He's right.

    Thoughts on Steelers-Seahawks finish last night?

    1. The referee on the field should have the discretion to accept or not a buzz from New York depending on game situation. That play, while proceeded the way the Seahawks had wanted, gave them time to huddle and talk through all the motions to get the field goal team on. Huge adv Offence as opposed to the rush the ball back to scrimmage point, get lined up, and spike with 1 second left. So much could've gone wrong. Mike Tomlin was angrier than I've ever seen him.

    2. OT - Game awareness Geno Smith. All you have to do is score to win which leads to hey everyone, be conservative.... hold onto the ball... don't take chances (i.e. QB SLIDE!!!!)

    I have no skin in the game, but rather thought the last 2 minutes and then OT were wonky football.
    Duncan's going to make a Horns Emoticon!!!

    100% agree, DK Metcalfe was bonker for not going out of bounds to stop the clock, I hope he gets reamed out by the coaches, though given the Seahawks Defensive process the coaches probably don't think it was an issue.

    I'll cut Geno some slack, he'll learn from it, he's played pretty well and he's not the problem on this team.

    I just bloody hate losing to the Steelers. Neither team is likely to be anywhere near the play-offs and would get bounced quickly if by any chance they made them.

    One could call the Cards the most surprising team in the NFL. From absolutely sucking in the preseason to 6-0.

    I would agree, but not because of the preseason, which basically means nothing. Most of the pundits would have had Zona 3rd in the West going into the season, and some maybe even last. They've exceeded all expectations so far.

    The game was fun but sloppy as hell. Though my favorite plays were the Diggs pick-6 (been lovin' that kid since he was drafted) and his blown coverage for a TD on the next play.

    And I happened to love the outcome.

    Diggs would look like a pretty good receiver on most squads, 142 yards and 2 TD's.

    A headline in my Google feed said that the Browns have 20 players on their injury list today. I don't know if that counts the 2 guys they put on IR today.

    Don't forget National Tight End day is a coming up. Kittle had a tight end get together in the off season, it's quite fascinating. TEU, Tight End University.

    As Stanford Steve always says, the Tight End is always open.

    Gronk, Kittle, Kelce, Waller, Bad ass mo fo's. Football at it's best. I'm so ready to celebrate National Tight End Day.

    The Future of Television.

    For the people that have 4K capability on their TV, FOX is showing tonight's NFL matchup between Cleveland and Denver in 4K (2160P) resolution. Even my wife walked into the Family Room and said wow, what a picture.

    I have a 4K HDR tv, but I donít have the new 4K broadcast receiver, or a cable box that supports 4K HDR. I have a stream box that does, however is this coverage on a Fox app with 4K HDR? BTW HDR is more important than 4K, and 4K is compressed too. Iíd rather have Blu-ray bit rate 1080P and HDR, than compressed 4K.

    The answer is:

    Games in 4K HDR will be available through the Fox Sports and Fox Now apps on Apple TV 4K and select Roku devices, plus FuboTV and YouTube TV streaming packages that carry the channel.Sep 22, 2021

    I must have picked up the game in 4K HDR. I got a message when I tuned the game in that it was available in 4K and to check and see if I was able to receive it. I got a message on the screen that I needed to make one settings change and I had it. I had watched some broadcasts on my Roku in 2160P, but this was my first sports event.

    Ok, so Tua isn't the answer but they want to replace him with a malcontent, and a possible convicted criminal. Way to go Miami......

    A few years ago, my parents asked me whether they should upgrade to a 4K TV. I told them the local broadcasters, the way they still watch to this day, don't broadcast in 4K. Nor will they in the foreseeable future. And there's no longer a Blockbuster Video from whom to rent 4K Blu-Rays.

    Actually the key capability inherent in the better 4K HDR TVs is superior upscaling. Especially the Sony Bravia ones with advanced processing. Another selection factor is gaming and sports watching which means good motion handling.

    4K viewing is incredible with the right setup. HDR and dolby vision do wonders for colors...as long as your cable provider, satellite or streaming service supports it. My cable service does not so I can't get games in 4K which is a shame because I'd love to see the Giants suck with more clarity.

    Yes, Mike Gesicki, keep show boating, flexing, and spinning that football you dipshit. You're 1-5. Dumbass.
