Another batch of games is done and dusted (as are quite a few quarterbacks), in what proved to be some exciting matches in an epic week 2.
The Raiders move to 2-0 after a dismantling of the Steelers, Buffalo kicks the fish, Trevor Lawrence continues to lose, the Bears survive, and TB12 looks better than ever.
All this and more in our Week 2 Review.
Wade and Ryan both went an okay’ish 8-9 last week after suffering some picking poisonings in the week 2 games.
In fact, it seems that the teams that were more injured, played better than some of the healthiest teams.
Ryan lost on the Chargers & Chiefs, while Wade made out with his picks on the Panthers, and Titans.
Amongst some of the thoughts on this podcast:
Despite making all the trades, new coaching hires, and adding Zach Wilson, the Jets still look like the same old Jets.
Wilson was welcomed to the NFL with 4 INTs and was hassled at every snap.
Many pundits thought this was the year that the Jets might finally be able to poke their way to the playoffs, but all indications point to no.
Las Vegas is on a tear, and they don’t care!
The Raiders are 2-0 thanks to beating down the Ravens and the Steelers, a pretty notable start to the season.
Fans can remember Raiders implosions in recent years, building up a streak of wins, only to slide into a losing autumn, with their make-up smeared from tears.
Carr is desperate to prove the critics wrong, even if he sacrifices his body in the process.
How long will this train ride go on?
Pocket rocket Kyler has been chucking loads of deep balls to start the season.
Arizona looks fun, and the addition of JJ Watt and some D line makes them a heavy contender going forward.
The Cardinals also have suffered from playoff gout, so all eyes will be on them if they can keep up the consistent play, or if they leak as many points as they can score.
Arizona has definitely added a fun factor to their games, which has been missing for a few years.
Jalen Hurts and the Eagles came out flying in week 1, only to get stymied by the 49ers in week 2.
Despite outgaining San Fran on the field, and a series of dropped balls, the Eagles couldn’t finish them off.
Hurts is still new, but has the benefit of having played some games last season to give him an advantage over true newbies like Lawrence, Wilson and Jones.
Philly might only be getting started.
