It's Sunday: What NFL Games Are You Watching?


The Vikings squeaked out another win on Thursday, so my Sunday is free and clear (except for the honey do list)

What games are you watching today?

Okay, is Case Keenum a product of his team? He's been playing awfully well lately.

I can't help but think that his team lifts him up a little just like Rodgers lifts the Packers.

Good question. I'd say it's a team effort. While he makes a lot of plays, his receivers also make some amazing catches. They have good chemistry right now, that's for sure.

As a Rams fan, I always thought Case Keenum played pretty good the last few years but the Rams had no wide receivers and the worst o-line in football. Coaching makes a lot of difference too.

Packers tied with Steelers at the half. I'm happy at least we scored this game.

Every player is a product of their team, at the end of the day. You could stick Tom Brady or Peyton Manning (circa 2015) on the Browns and they'd still be a basement-dwelling team. Despite the amount of focus placed on QBs, football is still a team game.

Still, the Vikings' current success lines up perfectly with Keenum taking over...so, he's clearly doing something right.

I can't stand either team, although it brings me slightly more joy watching Green Bay continue to fail. They did, however, put up much more of a fight than I ever expected them to.

Did GB do something bad to your team?

Aside from the two annoying playoff loses the Cowboys suffered because of Green Bay, they're simply a team I'm sick of hearing about. The talking heads and announcing crews are incapable of not verbally sucking off Aaron Rodgers every time he's on the field. He's a good QB, although his best tactic (aside from crying to the refs and throwing hissy fits every time something doesn't go his way) is to catch players trying to leave the field to get a free 5 yards.

I'm just tired of the team, really. It's good to see Detroit and Minnesota actually posing a threat to them over the past few years. Essentially, they're an organization - and fanbase - that needs to get taken down a few pegs. New England is another one that would do well with dropping a few pegs, too.

Tom Brady won't last forever. Even if he is playing impossibly good, well into his 40's.

As soon as he is gone NE will descend into their usual mediocrity. I know that and I am a patriots fan. It will be rough for a fanbase that has been given nothing but wins the past 2 decades.

I live in New England, so I know all too well how fickle the fanbase can be. It's hard to call the mediocrity of the early/late 80's and early 90's "typical", though; it's not like they haven't spent nearly two decades sitting at the top of the NFL.

They'd be capable of surviving without Brady. Belichick, on the other hand, is the indispensable one; once he's gone, they'll likely drop off significantly. Since he's the head coach and the GM (effectively), replacing him would involve finding two people capable of operating at his level.

I think so too...BUT, Belichick may decide he wants to separate his legacy from dependence upon Brady and stick around for a few years to try and continue his success after Brady retires. That would be a huge risk though, because if they stumble a lot it will look like Brady was the core of their success not Belichick.

Both are amazing at what they do. Both are more successful together than they would be apart in my view.

Belichick has seen success without Brady; the team went 11-5 in '08 without Brady; the only reason they missed the playoffs essentially came down to simple math, because their record would have been perfectly acceptable any other year. They also managed to go 3-1 during his suspension last year and only ran into trouble because both of their backup QBs suffered injuries.

He may not coach the team to the Super Bowl with Brady's replacement during their first year...but, I wouldn't be at all surprised to see a high playoff berth.

Limited. Their legacies are inextricably linked due to the length of their time together and the huge amount of success they have had. It will be hard to mention one without the other when discussing their careers, unlike most of the other coaches and players with NE who are for the most part interchangeable cogs in a well oiled machine.
