OT: NFL/NCAA Night Open Thread - GB vs. NO; AZ-OSU
Packers look good.
Well Aaron Rodgers looked pretty unstoppable on that drive. Adding Ryan Grant back into the mix and the Packers look like a great team on that small sample size. Should be a great game.
Saints fumbled earlier and Packers recovered. This has the potential to get ugly fast.
NFL is by far superior. The players execute their assignments perfectly, just like Colston and the Saints Defense.

Longtime Lion fans might disagree.
Seriously, while I agree that NFL players are more technically proficient, that doesn't make it a more interesting game for me to watch. I love the unpredictability of college football. Players come and go, rosters are in constant flux and unexpected new stars/teams emerge. The constant is the traditions and pagentry, which I enjoy a lot more than the NFL experience, which is largely the same (with the same Jock Jams over the PA) in every stadium.
(Also, I like the college rules better, like requiring only one foot inbounds and stopping the clock to move the chains.)
I would rather watch the Rose Bowl than the Super Bowl. The unpredictability of college ball, the student sections, the bigger stadiums, the variety of offenses and defenses...all of those things can't be matched by the pros, no matter how many freak athletes and students of the game are on a roster.
well, im negative points in this early FF season, thanks colston
edit: what the fuck, i have both graham and colston and i have 3.7 points so far, this game sucks
I've seen to start a season in awhile...and they still won the Super Bowl. If they can keep the drive, they could be real good. Probably come down to Rodgers pushing them or not. They have QB flavors of the day hyped as the next big thing by the media, but he really gives the feel as a successor to Brady/Manning.
And a TD instead of a FG there is big with a 4 point spread. But it's not over. I get the feeling this is going to be a high scoring game.
in here too. LOL at Zona corners talking smack to Justin Blackmon.
Also, Aaron Rodgers looking really good so far. Get after him this year Suh.
At least in college football every kickoff wont' end in a touchback.
have you seen our KO coverage team? Maybe wouldn't be the worst thing ever.
Over Troy, either.
But yeah, it kinda sucks. If not for the onside you might as well put it at the 20.
"University of Michigan" so we don't have all the over-analyzing.
And knew Saints would score. They were only stopping themselves.
said KZoo Central instead of Western. Must be some serious problems and infighting going on there....
I'm not surprised.
Rodgers has way too many weapons. Especially now with a healthy team. Cobb looks pretty good.
It would be great to see Borges implement this later during the season (Oklahoma St. has their QB in the pistol with two sidecars and a deep back). It is a really neat fusion of the wishbone and pistol, and they have run some great power plays out of this set. It would be awesome to see Denard in this attack with Hopkins, Shaw and Fitz.
I'll take defensive coordinators who look like morons named G. Robinson for $200 Alex.
It appears having 2 G's in your name doesn't help either. What are the Saints doing on d? What a debacle.
Born after John Kasay entered the NFL?
but there might not be many. I think he entered the NFL in 1991
Denard returning punts for the Saints
What a great return by Sproles!
Wow he's fast. Like to see him and denard race
That longest kickoff return is tied. What a return that was!
That is all.
Wow! That return by Cobb was absolutely sick. This kid looks like a stud so far.
Something I make a point of not doing. Just as my personal vendetta against ESPN.
In 2 years.
You go Chucky. Punch him.
I'm forced to watch with no sound and all I saw was chuck throw a gut punch to someone.
From behind too long, Chuck didn't appreciate it, and gave him an uppercut...down low.
But a good "drop" by the Saints, as they were about to lose 15 yards and giving it to Green Bay.
Change the color of Their facemasks? I seem to remember grey. Is this Nike combat uni for them?
They've had green facemasks since I started watching them in the mid-90s.
That was a test, then, or something.
Saints do not have a championship defense right now. They look like Michigan trying to tackle last year.
Staying up till the end for.
nice way to start off the season....oh and Ingram....Welcome to the NFL
