I was happy to see that Cam Newton and Aaron Rodgers both had good games in week 1.  It will be interesting to see how they do if both of them remain healthy.  My inner demon always hopes that Heisman trophy winners will get smeared in their opening games, but I'm pleased to note that the quarterback for the Bengals did pretty good.  He lost the game yes, but he did perform well, all in all.  My demon has retreated back into the subconsciousness for another year.

I liked what I saw in the Steelers.  Fast, aggressive defense.  Forced 5 turnovers.  Big Ben shook off the rust pretty quickly.  I like Benny Snell as the RB.  He had a great game.  He was in because James Connor got hurt AGAIN.  WR's look like a solid unit.

Were there any microaggressions or systematic racism on the field?

Of course, but they were offset by virtue signaling and wokeness

Even the empty seats took a knee.

The part where Mahomes snaps his head to look in a different section of the stadium, completely baffled that the fans are booing (at :08 seconds into the video). 

The team no doubt talked about what they'd do for weeks leading up to the game, and not one person suggested the fans might not like it.

I joined a football pool (I won Week 1 YAY) and I was stunned how low-rated Rodgers was. I couldn't believe it, he was at the bottom half of QB's on the pre-rating charts. I mean the Packers DID win their division with a 13-3 record last year.

I am so glad football is back, it really is the perfect sport. I also got Red Zone which is a real beautiful thing

Steelers were dominating the Broncos but as they often do, they ease up in the second half and allowed them to climb back.  The Broncos had every chance to win the game late but the Steelers' safety Terrell Edmunds blitzed UNTOUCHED and sacked the QB on 4th and 2 at the Steelers 15.  Steelers win 26-21.  (They were up 17-3 at the half and Denver was showing no signs of life)

Next week is the Houston Texans and a reunion of the Watt brothers.

The Jaguars lost on a last minute field goal.  They can’t even Tank for Trevor very well.

Seahawks 35 - Patriots 30.  What a great game.  A real nail-biter right up till the very end.
