    Did anybody think 6 weeks into the season, we'd be talking about a Jets-Pats match-up where both teams are a combined 9-1? Outside of that, a lot of good/decent teams playing against a lot of mediocre/bad teams.

    Anyone else find the NFL product to be lacking, generally, this season? I'm not really entertained by it right now.

    So far College has much better in terms of craziness factor.

    For me it started 2 years ago and spiked in a big way last year. The penalties, non-stop commercials, media coverage in general, stupid "takes", manufactured headlines, fighting, pissing and BS in the stands across the nation, scandals and worst of all to me - the low IQ of the general NFL fanbase. NFL T-shirt fan is ****ing annoying.

    I can live with losing the players we follow and love on a regular basis, because that's the nature of the game, but the rest of it... the product just sucks right now IMO.

    I used to like CFB more, up until about 2009ish when the spread was emerging in full force, but I've been back on the CFB #1 bandwagon since about 2013. The playoffs really make it special now.

    I tend to agree. I can't put my finger on all of it....but without a rooting interest, it's real difficult for me to keep watching a game. They seem ridiculously sloppy compared to years past...but that might just be my perception. I just don't care that much about it outside of the Texans...and that's only because they rep my hometown.

    I wonder if the constant rule changes, Thursday games, high rate of player turnover and coaching staff turnover are translating into a crap product on the field. I feel like it takes at least 8 weeks for teams to get into a groove now.

    Not sure where the manziel incident is being discussed but I just realized that his gf is the sister of Parsons' ex Robyn Crowley.

    No, you're spot on.

    Its been discussed nationally quite a bit this year... there is a lot of BAD football being played.

    Some of it is that defenses have adapted to the pass-happy nature of teams, and teams literally forgot (or ignored) how to run the football. (and nowadays, people universally/unfairly equate teams shut down by good defenses to "bad football").

    Other teams with talent and supposed good QB's are either ill-prepared from a coaching standpoint (Detroit, San Diego, Indy), or their QB's have finally hit a wall and will no longer be able to do what they used to do (Denver, New Orleans).

    I just see several teams (Houston included) that look so out of sync from week to week that you have no idea who they really are... Chicago, KC, Cleveland, St. Louis, Buffalo, TB, Minnesota, etc.

    This. How did this happen? He was never Joe Montana out there but now he has no business starting for an NFL team.

    might be time to see what Gabbert can do for SF. Kaepernick is done.

    People routinely seem to underestimate Indy. They have 6 likely wins remaining on their schedule (Jags, Titans, Texans, Saints, Bucs, Dolphins). I assume they probably lose to Denver, Atlanta, Steelers, and Carolina. That leaves them at 9-7, though the version of the Colts we saw last weekend could probably win some of those other games.
