I feel like Sunday was topsy-turvy: The Jags defeat the Bills, the Broncos shut out the Cowboys in Dallas, the Titans absolutely clobbering the Rams in LA and without Henry?? Kind of a shocking day to say the least.

Mahomes only looked like Mahomes on the last play of the game. The Chiefs are struggling but the Packers struggled more without Aaron.
Maybe the rest of the league is catching on to how the Chiefs and Mahomes play the way that they caught on to how the 49ers dominated with Colin Kaepernick several years ago?

And my Saints lost on the final play with 2 seconds to go to the Falcons... :wuzrobbed

I was listening to a radio show yesterday where they were talking about that very thing. Saying that Mahomes and the offense really haven't changed and grown - and others can better defend them now. I am "no technic" so can't assess the reality of that myself. However it seems to make sense.

When the Jaguars beat the Bills.....better grab your winter gear because I think hell is freezing over! :lol:

Are the Bears leading the league in penalties now? Count on the Bears to establish a leading record in something LOL! At least Justin Fields shows flashes of exciting stuff. It should be fun to watch him develop. Penalties surely beat them last night. I know there were a couple of questionable calls - that happens. So many of the rest of the penalties were just lack of dicipline.

After many years the Bears have a franchise quarterback. He is exciting to watch. I could not believe some of the penalties last night.
Defenses are getting smarter about defending Mahomes. They consistently double team his best receivers. That makes a difference. But Mahomes is still uncomfortable in the pocket. You don’t want him to lose the way he can create plays as you are urging him to more traditional quarterback practices.

Add to that the Cardinals beat the 49rs in SF, without their starting QB (Murray) key receiver (Hopkins) and another key player AJ Green). They are 8-1 now. Who would have predicted this?

Week 11 - the cRaZy unexpected results continue!!!! 😜😜😜

Im just hoping that Team Brady has their act together tonight. Beacause I have totally given up on the Bears. I have been feeling sympathy for Detroit - it’s got to be frustrating being the only winless team. But good news for them - the Bears are coming!!! :lol:

I had almost decided that Tennessee would be my back up to the backup team to root for if the Bucs fall off (I like Vrabel). Then look what happened yesterday. :drama: I’m beginning to think I really might have some sort of jinxing power that I was previously unaware of! :p

I used to think I had jinxing power over U.S. pairs teams (every pair I became a fan of fizzled). But then a coach at my rink pointed out that all U.S. pairs teams fizzle.

Sorry about the loss the Ravens handed the Bears, but with the Bengals winning yesterday, we couldn't afford another loss. ;)

Sad, but good point! :lol:

I’ve totally given up on the Bears, so go Ravens! I love watching Lamar Jackson play. It’s too bad he was not in the game yesterday ( hope he is OK!). The Bears would have lost by a million points and Nagy would have been fired on the spot, which most think needs to happen anyway.

So…. GO BUCS! (let the jinxing begin! :lol: )

LOL - someone with more jinxing juju than I have must have been rooting for the Giants last night. :lol:

And....Nagy is fired mid-season. I guess this is the first time in Bears history for a mid-season head coach termination.

ETA: Interesting - the Nagy news was reported in the local Patch, but I'm not seeing it yet on national news. So who knows... The Patch reported quoted an un-named source who said Nagy was informed on Monday that the Thursday Lions game will be his last. Not sure if that's the smartest way to go about a termination....but what has been "smart" about the Bears management this year? (or some would say, any year??)

ETA2: Now CBS Sports is reporting it, however they are referencing the reporter from the Patch. So still not 100% convinced.
ETA3: I wonder if Mark Konkol's sources are as good as the sources here at FSU????? :p :lol:

Bears / Nagy latest:

Tuesday late morning press conference: Nagy denies the rumors - says he is staying focused on the next game.
Tuesday afternoon: Nagy supposedly has a meeting with TPTB, then cancels the rest of his meetings for the afternoon / evening.
No word at all from TPTB on Tuesday to clarify the situation.
Wednesday: McCaskey (owner) finally meets with team to say that the rumors are false - that Nagy is NOT being terminated on Thursday. (what took him so long, if the report was false?????)

Things still seem a bit cRaZy in Dodge....
