After some recent attendance issues, Dave and Ryan are itching to get back at it in episode 76. What better way to return to normalcy that a full show on all things NFL.
Week One had some surprises, some blowouts and and a few impressive rookie debuts. While it is far too soon to draw broad conclusions from the first week of the regular season, there were a few things that caught the eye of the SUL guys. Falcons coach Mike Smith said it best after his team was demolished by the Bears in Chicago. . “It’s a long season. It’s Week 1.” But, the Buffalo Bills handing the Chiefs their worst opening day loss in team history? The Pittsburgh Steelers turned the ball over seven times in losing to division rival Baltimore? The Colts are completely hopeless without Peyton Manning? Only time will tell if these trends can continue.
It was a good week for first-year player performances. Randall Cobb had a 32 yard TD catch and a 108 yard kick return for the Packers in their impressive win over the Saints. Cam Newton threw for 422 yards in his debut. Also, Patrick Peterson returned a punt for the deciding TD in the Cardinals win. Keep an eye on these rooks.
Two big games to pay attention to this week. San Diego Chargers at New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles travel to the dirty south to take on the Atlanta Falcons.
