The Jags are finally good/are as bad as ever.
The Packers are Superb Owl-bound/have the same old problems with defence and protecting Aaron Rodgers.
The Broncos have no offence/Trevor Siemian is legit.
The Giants are the best team in their division/are terrible and everyone hates them.
The Pats will win it all again/are in trouble/are just fine.
The Bears aren’t as bad as we thought/are one of the worst teams in the league.
The Texans’ defence will carry them to glory/botched the QB situation again and are hopeless.
The Seahawks are going back to the Superb Owl/their offence is so bad that the team is ready to implode.
The Lions are the real deal after beating two awful teams. The Bucs are Superb Owl contenders after beating one terrible team.
Welcome to the NFL journalism hyperbole machine, everyone, it seems, has it all figured out, and where dead-solid guarantees are made, discarded, and reimagined. And it’s only week three.
After being perfect on the early games last Sunday, the wheels fell off and I finished 10-6 for the week. Still, not bad, and pretty typical for a week two, when I'm still figuring things out.
