    Default 2020 NFL Season Begins

    We’ll see how this goes pre Covid vaccines and will be interesting for sure! Impossible to know how any team will do without preseason games. Trubisky named da Bears starting QB over Foles which is surprising since he looked soooo bad last year. I have no problem benching him immediately if he stinks again in Q1.

    Yeah, it's going to look a lot different just like everything else this year. Empty stadiums, piped in crowd noise, and I gotta say my patience with the messaging of the Social Justice crowd is running out. I follow football, namely the Packers, to escape from the everyday politics not to be reminded of it. Sure hope we have snow this winter, the north woods might be the only place to go to avoid the daily ranting and bad behavior.

    Ya I agree Mark we need football gives us that Fall feeling that winter and riding is just around the corner. It will be different as Gary indicates but may help to normalize life as usual. We all need to move forward with our lives get back in the swing of things.

    Social justice millionaires playing a game. I used to love the NFL and my dreadful Vikings. Its gonna be hard to turn it on this year. Man I wish they could just leave the BS out of it and play the game. That was an escape on sundays from all the day to day crap I deal with. Can't willingly subject myself to it if thats what its gonna be. Messages in the endzone. Messages on helmets. Messages on shoes. Kneeling for the National Anthem! Nope I am out.

    Guaranteed 21 million and a draft pick for Foles and he is not better than Trubisky? Cam Newton signed with the Patriots for 1.05 million.

    In nearly 56 years I have never watched a full game. I just can't see sitting in front of a TV on a nice Sunday afternoon.

    I know a guy that would watch both Sunday afternoon games and then the Sunday night game every week. I can barely watch one game without feeling bored or guilty for being inside when it's nice out or I have things to take care of.

    Yup, done. I was getting sucked into the Twins until they took a game off for “Social Justice” - haven’t even looked up a score since.

    Same here, I have been to about a dozen games and even then only watch part of it. Same thing with baseball. The only ball sport I can really get into watching is basketball, but no way will I be watching or attendng any games anymore

    I will admit I'm not much of a sports fan but enjoyed...key word...ENJOYED attending games until just as slimcake said "social justice millionaires" playing a game, I just don't understand how one mans career was destroyed after taking a knee and basically much of the world "at that time" was against what he was doing (as was I) and here we are just like many other things that were considered taboo, politically incorrect or offensive, now if you don't agree with or aren't on the same side as the "social justice idiots" you are the one with the problem.... I just don't get it and you hear a lot of push back from people with the same opinion...done with professional sports, and honestly I don't care to and doubt I will attend any games as long as this agenda is part of their game.

    The only sports I would watch would be the occasional Badger football game, and the Packers. I'm not going plan anything around watching the Packers, meaning if I have ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ELSE GOING ON, I may turn it on. I'm not going to watch a game where players have a criminals name on their helmet.

    I will only support sports that endorse the law abiding,hard working, tax paying American citizen. that eliminates most or all Pro sports that I used to watch. Bless the USA and her veterans.

    I am old. I am not going to waste the little time I have left watching a spectacle that infuriates me. They have managed to take a one hour game and turn it into a 3 and1/2 hour bunch of crap. Advertisements after every play. Instant ??????? replay. Divas. Too many rules. Crappy refs. Rigged games. And now there will be signs and symbols and who knows what in addition to the original crap. Watching paint dry is more satisfying.

    No preseason, limited training camp, etc. This could be really ugly. Even uglier will be the signage that is expected. Names on the helmets...think of how the young girl that Jacob Blake assaulted feels when she sees his name on a helmet. The NFL is on a slippery slope with the social justice crowd. Did you notice what happened to the Milwaukee Bucks? They refused to play a playoff game in protest of current events and they lost 3 out of 4. They're done, they're at home watching the playoffs. One of the best teams in the league this year screwed the pooch by breaking their momentum. And they gained nothing for their efforts.

    Sorry for the rant, where's the Tylenol?

    There has really never been a time in my life that I don't remember professional sports being important to me. Sure, I've maybe lost a little interest in NASCAR since Number 3 died, and the NFL kneeling deal certainly started to turn me away. But, this "social justice" thing, at a time when it doesn't feel real anyway, since there aren't any fans watching, is going to deal a huge blow to pro sports of all types.

    Kneel for the Flag? Go ahead. This is still America. When you do it on "company time" there will be consequences, so don't cry when we lose interest.

    Wear the name of Jacob Blake on your helmet, or cancel games to honor him? F/U.

    Watched Chiefs / Texans game last night and the football was pretty good. The political monologue SUCKED just not the place for it. If this continues pregame, halftime and national anthem will not be watched I’ll just do something else tune back in later.

    Simple for me, If they can't play our National Anthem as we all know it for so many years then I am out. I have lived 2/3rd of my life and don't need to have it rubbed in my face by these privileged athletes singing "We are the World".

    TV viewers were down by about 7 million people compared to last year's first game. That's approximately everyone that lives in Wisconsin. Anyone surprised?

    Just got off my lawn mower and had a text that the family of george flyod blew the viking horn before todays game. Also said there was a lot of preaching about racism and social just from greg jennings in the announcer booth. I am sooooo done with the NFL. Actually all pro sports except hockey. done.

    The Pre Games were pretty much unwatchable, all preaching and little football. I'll give them one more week and then decide. I thought the Packers kept things neutral if that is at all possible. They stayed in the locker room until after the anthem and I didn't notice any "messaging" on their helmets. By the way, the group that did sing the National Anthem did a great job, first class!

    Glad to see football again but I get my preaching in church not on the pre-game show. Pack is 1-0 and back to Lambeau next week to host the Lions.

    Yeppers same here 30 minutes into pregame and lecture started so I switched up to weather channel to catch up on hurricanes. I came back to NFL fox ticket right at bears lions game kickoff. Trubisky sucked for 50 minutes of 60 minute game then put up 21 points in Q4. Imo the Bears should have had the Lions on the ropes in Q1 but Trubisky was off inaccurate looked bad had me thinking his lousy QB play was about to destroy the moral of the entire team. Lions are dangerous probably a 500 team if they can avoid injuries. A W always helps and Trubisky earned another start. Up to me I would have put in Noles mid Q3 then he caught fire in Q4.... totally unexpected by me.

    Ha Whitedust sense you watch bear-loin game I have a question for you. My wife thought she saw some people in the stands on a quick clip they showed during packer game could you confirm if this was true please. Reason I’m asking is if they allowed people in how could they ever ask UP to shutdown for snow season. Would really confirm who pays who. Thanks

    No fans but maybe she saw practice squads socially distanced in the stands which are obviously part of the teams. Whatever happens this MI snowmobile season is in Governor Whitmer’s hands. Whitmer was been very heavy handed towards MI business durning covide restrictions remember when she restricted fishing and boating as a pandemic spreader so snowmobiling would be right in her wheelhouse if Covid numbers are up. As far as I know MI groomer repair funds have not been released yet.

    Thanks WD that’s what I figured but had it ask. On the note of groomer funds a week or two ago the MI-trail group were out and graded part of trail 2 from Marinesco to the east but I don’t know if that was government funded by trail passes or if by funding by MI-trail group

    The KC-Houston game had fans in the stadium. Sat at least 6 feet from each other.

    Saw highlights of the pregame on youstube.

    x2 on Gayle Sayers. Imagine the stats he would have had if he had been not injured a lot and had a long career.

    Sayers was the best pure running back I ever had a chance to see play only Barry Sanders came close to what Gale could do on a football field. I was very surprised he died of dementia and had a law suit against the Bears that his brain injuries were mistreated and caused his dementia. Rip Gale. I remember you!

    WOW... Da Bears! What a game Nagy pulls Trubisky puts in Foles who throws 5 TDs 3 that count and beats the Falcons going away in the 4th Quarter. Imo Nagy should ride Foles the rest of the year the Trubisky era is over.

    Throw Trubisky on the garbage pile of other Bears QB's in the past 40 years.
    Will go down as the worst draft pick in NFL history.

    Yes I agree. Imo Trubisky will play out the year with the Bears and I have no idea what will happen with him after this season. I’m pretty sure Bears management is done with Trubisky and want to move on, draft another slinger or stay with Foles bring Bray up and look for best deal on a longer term QB. Trubisky has a lot of talent but his football IQ is very low and his accuracy has always been questionable. Trubisky is at his best when he runs around and doesn’t think everything a pocket passer isn’t. Who knows maybe another team will pick him up play to his abilities make some thing of him. I wish the best for Mitch seems like a good guy but needs a change of scenery ASAP.

    The Vikings will pick up Trubisky and pay him $750 million dollars. Then they will trade of all of their high draft picks for 23 6th round picks and take cornerbacks with all 23. That is the Vikings way.
