Really hoped Detroit would be much better in the trenches this year. Will be hard to win games with the way this offensive line is playing. They're getting manhandled. Not sure what kind of scheme you can run to compensate for being overmatched like that outside of staying in a shotgun.

Every year, I'm finding it harder and harder to feel personally invested in the NFL. I really miss when I used to be able to sit down and be entertained watching the NFL all day, but I can hardly sit through one whole game at this point. I feel like every game follows a handful of scripts in the way that it plays out, almost like I'm watching a rerun of a football game.

My feelings as well. I want to be excited to watch football on Sundays but end up falling asleep or deciding to do something with the family. I can’t put my finger on what makes me feel the way I do. I would rather watch two no name college teams duke it out than watch any NFL game.

Anyone watching the Browns game? Peppers took another horrible angle and cost them a TD. He has been brutal so far in the NFL. They may have to bench him. I did not see this coming.

I really hope the Lions can break that no 100 yard rusher drought today. So that will no longer be in these telecast discussions. This is the closest they've gotten in awhile.

It's the offensive line that's killing your fantasy team today. I'm not the usual Stafford defender but it's hard to imagine any QB succeeding behind what is a complete F grade performance by the offensive line.
