Get to see the Browns (sans Thomas) against the Vikings next week. I fear it will be as competitive as the Cardinals Rams game.

First three Quarters were pretty good but then it was Cleveland being Cleveland

Started well and up until partway through the 3rd Quarter, it was an even contest.

Didnít help that the Browns have a blind kicker.

I was surprised that the Vikings pass rush didnít do more.

Every time Keenum did a play action he seemed to have forever to throw the ball (usually to the RB). I am hoping the Bears have noticed this, as we still have to play the Browns this season (and the 49ers).

Pats have traded Jimmy Garoppolo to the 49ers.

Seems strange that Billy B has traded away both backup QBs with the last two months

Was more surprised to see Ajayi join Crystal Palace.

Can't believe we traded Ajayi for only a 4th round pick

Seems like the Trump-voting Cheeseheads made a late bid to take Hoyer, so their claim that they weren't interested in Kaepernick because they were happy with their choice of QBs has been exposed as a bunch of lies.

Bedlam lived up to its name! Bad defeats for the Buckeyes and Nittany Lions with Big 10 liable not to make the CFP. Other than that, as you were.

If anyone was in any doubt that Rodgers is easily the best player in the NFL, then the disgrace the Packers are without him will surely put those doubts to bed

He's brilliant. I thought when Favre went, you might at least have a few years of knowing what it's like to watch Bears QBs over the years... and then Rodgers comes along and is much better.

I don't think Green Bay fans can really complain too much though, after one major injury in the position in the last two decades.

Maybe if you had a better backup you'd be more of a threat? There's a bloke who led his team to a Super Bowl currently without a team...

Watched the Packers game and your Defence was dreadful. Hundley did okay, played it safe really.

Our DL is better so should pressure him more on Sunday, but also I think your Defence will play better against the run than it does against the pass.

Request for photos from Soldier Field reminded me of a funny, Villa-related, NFL story:

Years ago (mid 80s) when Dave Wangerin (Elfmeter, When Saturday Comes, etc) moved to Brum, when people heard he was from Chicago he was always being asked if he knew Refrigerator Perry. After being asked so often & seeing so many disappointed faces when he'd say "No" - he just decided to start saying "Yes" and that they were at Uni together etc - he made loads of new friends lol
