    You do realize that with a healthy Watt, the Steelers could be 2-1 or even 3-0 right now, right?

    Sounds like you are smoking something special right now. Rose Colored Glasses.

    Yeah Mannn, I can dig it. And, if we didn't have to play the 2nd half of the Browns game we would have won that game too.

    Everyone you named except the chargers aren't that great. Chargers are dealing with injuries right now.

    Not only that.


    Between me and you, this AFC at the moment seems more wide open than others are giving it credit for. I initially thought that the AFC West would steamroll just about everyone then bludgeon themselves into oblivion. Well.... outside of Kansas City and Los Angeles (Injury Bug is crippling them severely), the rest of the Division is not what I thought. Miami should surprise no one (at least not me) and Buffalo, for whatever reason, cannot close out one score games in the Fourth Quarter; 0-7 now as of yesterday. The AFC North is even more wild as both Cleveland and Baltimore do seem like they are favorites but I expect both to slip up at some point; Baltimore via Lamar Jackson possibly being dinged up and Cleveland for being... well... Cleveland. Now, I do not expect Pittsburgh to contend for the Division this season. Cincinnati though is playing with fire having Burrow getting knocked around. Me and you both agree on the South barring something extreme as I do believe that Division is Jacksonville's to lose.


    Overall, while the season is still very young, many of the results that I thought were going to happen have either vanished or have happened quicker than I thought; Jacksonville's resurgence and the return of the Dolphins being the top two for me.

    Are you arguing that this team is a break or two away from being amoungst the AFC elite? Or are you just arguing?

    The broncos have talent. Just a terrible coach. I think they'll get better as the season goes. The raiders though are a shock.

    He's bad regardless of qbr. Easily one of the probably 5-7 worse qbs currently starting.

    +5 turnovers and should’ve lost. If that was the super bowl I’d be happy with should’ve but didn’t. With that being said if you are +5 in turnover ratio you should blow out the opposing team. The fact that Dallas backup beat cincy says it

    Not 100% certain now about the Russell Wilson trade as I was when it happened months ago. Again, the season is still very young but these first three games have not given me much confidence in Russell Wilson as I thought.

    The Steelers lost to the Patriots by three points. You don't think the DPOY could swing a game that was that close?

    The next time the Browns figure out how to block Watt will be the first.

    It is absolutely fair to suggest they would have won one of those two games with their best player rather than the parade of scrubs they have replacing him.

    My point was that if you are going to talk about the Bengals losing their long snapper in the opener, you have to talk about the impact of losing Watt in the two games that followed.

    He looks fine to me. The play calling has been terrible.

    This is true however, a team shouldn’t fall apart with one starter out that isn’t the qb

    You do realize that if TJ didn't get injured, the Steelers might be 2-1 :shrug:.

    Quite a few people liked Jacksonville this season, that division is terrible, and the favored Colts look bad.

    Fans just like to pile on Bush, he has played better than he was last season, he had 11 tackles against the Browns.

    The Steelers aren't that great either, every team is dealing with injuries.

    With or without Watt, we lost to a scrub Patsie team and an average, POS team with a damn ferry elf logo on their field...we've now officially time-warped back into the 1960's! Most of the people who use an injured Watt as an "excuse" for losing are usually the same Dumblin groupies who pretend he's some great coach.

    I know the steelers aren't that great. It was the guy trying to point those others teams out as to try to excuse what's going on with the steelers.
