    Garropalo was playing like NFL MVP those first 6-7 quarters of football so I don't know how you can say Brisset is better.

    If Brisket was better, they would play him over Grabapolo.

    Dak Prescott had a lot of pre draft hype. Rumor was Denver was interested.

    Goff looks really bad but Garoppollo was excellent yesterday

    Of course one of those guys has had 3 years to be groomed into what he is, while studying under one of the greatest QB's of all time and the greatest coach of all time.

    Goff (and other young QB's) would all likely benefit similarly.

    Also Wentz and Prescott look light years better than Goff. Bridgewater, Mariota, Carr and Jamies as rookies did too. Lynch looked very solid in preseason

    Not sure what's going on with Goff, he might just need more time but he also looks physically overmatched

    that one running play they had schemed into the chiefs gameplan indicates this is probably true lol...seriously though. that ONE running play. lamar miller got the snot beat out of him on that ONE running play they had designed.

    CJF split out wide...LBer follow out wide...CJF motions back to the line to block, brings extra tackler into the box with him....run right at extra tackler. that was a crap design from the pit of crap.

    i believe one of the big benefits of motion is to give away the defenses coverage pre-snap. but they never opted to throw after that so....geez, i honestly don't know what the point was.

    i've been saying for 2-3 weeks in conversation, it's like they bought the most beautifully constructed blade out there...but it isn't sharpened yet and is used by a novice. godsey the play caller leaves just about as much to be desired as possible. this offense is screaming potential and capitalizing on 1/10th of it AND still winning.

    Do you guys think the Bears loss to the Eagles devalues our first win against them?

    Their offense looked terrible, and I don't think it was the Eagles defense.

    I'm really happy with our defense, but our offense still has a huge question mark looming. This concerns me moving forward. I don't think our offense has drastically changed from the years before.

    I'm just saying that the ability to succeed right away, vs. looking awful initially, does not necessarily portend a degree of long-term success vs. failure.

    On the other hand, young/talented QB's that routinely sit and learn... tend to perform consistently and quite well when they're ultimately given their chance. Granted, most bad/desperate teams don't have the luxury of sitting a talented QB for multiple years while they "get it" (unlike the Pats and the Broncos with Brock).

    Not sure anybody was calling the Bears win a good win... but it was a game they were supposed to win.

    The first-team offense has just 3 players currently that were regulars last year. Its going to take some time. The fact that they're 2-0 gives them a little more margin for error.

    If they're still sputtering by week 5, I'll start to get worried that they don't have all the parts needed (mainly O-line).

    Good point. I'll wait til week 5, or Thursday, should we see anything alarming during the game.

    My expectations are high. The team has some major potential, and chemistry seems to be up there.

    We'll have to wait until the AP & Coaches polls come out, I guess.

    Let's revisit this after, say, Week 8. Lots of new faces plus a patchwork O-line equals ugly offense to start the season.

    Hopefully it all gets worked out as the season rolls along.

    BOB seems to have established the track record of slower starts... and the offense showing some more cohesiveness/effectiveness as the season goes on.

    That being said, that usually has been because they've dumbed it down or they employed some gimmicks that caught teams by surprise.

    Pats are so conniving in the lightest sense.

    Release a report that Garoppolo is out; BOB gameplans around Brisset; Pats release another report saying Garoppolo may play...

    hell, we might as well gameplan for Brady just to be safe...

    the upside, i guess, is that there's tape on garoppolo
