Much higher than last year. Granted its a 2 game window but you're assuming they are worse with the same games. Ill give you griffin cause he looks worse.. Wilson won on the east coast throwing 300 plus yards(something they didnt do well last year, sucked on the road) and played good enough for a win against the favorite to win the Super Bowl. Weeden doesn't count cause he blows both years. I don't see a slump with 3 of those guys.
That is why I didn't put Kaepernick in the list. Luck was good not but not great against the Raiders. At home against Oakland is not a game that should be close, but it was. He was outright bad against Miami. The real reason Luck has so many 4th quarter comebacks already is because he plays pretty poorly for 3 quarters against bad teams and then puts together a good drive or two late to win close games. Wilson beat what can euphemistically be described as a bad team on the road, good completion% and everything but he is bad in the red zone (2 for 7 for 16 yards).

The reason Luck has so many comebacks is because he's on team that is still talent deficient. The Colts roster before they drafted Luck was absolutely putrid, and two drafts (with half the guys being rookies this year) isn't going to fix that overnight.

Colts had a 5 win roster last year and won 11 games, now they have more like a 7 win roster and will end about .500.

Their offensive line is one of the worst in the NFL and they can't block for pass or run and their defense is still pretty bad, it will take them a few years to build a team around Luck.

More not-so-great news for the #Falcons? RB Steven Jackson (thigh) may miss 2-4 weeks, source says. Officially viewed as week-to-week though

I was just looking at the NFL schedule and noticed that the Jags are going into Seattle to play the Seahawks this weekend.

Why don't they just forfeit?

Can a game be called before it starts?

That's huge for the Seahawks. After last week's game that they essentially treated like a SB, history would tell us that they might be due for a letdown effort this weekend. If they were playing pretty much any team not named the Jaguars or Browns, they might have their hands full this weekend.

Carroll might be giving a bunch of first stringers the day off before this one is over.

I won't be surprised to see them post 60+ points on the board. This is going to look like one of those early in the season Nebraska games.

When you're 0-2...
Steelers had a team meeting (not panicking, no no, NOT!)
And from that: To solve their woes they have decided to restrict who can and can't play billiards and ping pong in the team training facility!!

I watched the Football Life Episode on Revis and it was nauseating. Then to top it off they had a "Backstory" show like Talking Dead to discuss the lame 60 minute show they just aired.

In Backstory they had to explain the "meeting" Revis had with Schaino(SP?) to "Clear the air".

NFLN **** the bed with this one.

I didn't know it's been a full calendar year since the eagles won a home game.

Default Tom Brady makes calls to Deion Branch, Brandon Lloyd

"The New England Patriots front office have shown no desire to add any veteran wide receivers to the mix despite the struggles of rookie pass catchers Aaron Dobson and Kenbrell Thompkins. Their starting quarterback, however, is keeping up with old friends.

NFL Media's Mike Silver and Ian Rapoport are reporting that Tom Brady has been calling and texting his former receivers Deion Branch and Brandon Lloyd, per sources directly involved in the situation.

Branch is ready to play if the Patriots call. Lloyd has said he's not quite ready to play
"

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap200...gn=Twitter_atl

Tommy Tantrum doesn't seem very pleased with the front office these days.

The Cleveland Browns already have their eyes on Trent Richardson's replacement.

The Browns covet Ben Tate, whose contract with the Houston Texans expires after this season, and will aggressively pursue the running back in free agency, league sources told ESPN.

Cleveland also is fielding offers for and is open to trading wide receivers Josh Gordon and Greg Little, according to a league source.
