7 Grueling Truths About the First Sunday of the 2019 NFL Season: Pats are immortal, the Browns are still the Browns, and more

Who stops the Patriots?

FOXBOROUGH, MASSACHUSETTS - SEPTEMBER 08: Tom Brady #12 of the New England Patriots handles the ball during the first half against the Pittsburgh Steelers at Gillette Stadium on September 08, 2019 in Foxborough, Massachusetts. (Photo by Maddie Meyer/Getty Images)

1) The Patriots are immortal

Gronk is gone and you couldn’t even tell! Antonio Brown has not even suited up yet! What are they thinking in Miami right now as they prepare to play the Patriots? Tom Brady has not aged and they have multiple skill players that can score at any time, and now they have Isaiah Wynn at left tackle who looks to be an absolute beast. Oh, and I almost forgot they might have and even better defense than last year.

Barring injuries I can already predict how this season will end up, and that’s with ring number seven for Brady and the boys!

2) The Browns are still the Browns, don’t believe the hype

The Browns first drive ended in a Touchdown and I could just picture in my head a dad at the game looking at his son and saying son this is the year the Browns win the Super Bowl. Fast Forward to early fourth quarter as father and son are leaving the game early and the son looks up at his dad and says daddy what happened? The dad looks down at the son and says get used to it son this is what it’s like to be a Browns fan. The Browns as I have told people they have a lot of glitter, but they have no substance, which in football terms means not a good enough defense and a bad offensive line. Plus Baker Mayfield has gone from last year being the guy you root for to being the asshole that doesn’t know when to shut the hell up, will the Titans shut him up!

3) The Cardinals may have the real deal at quarterback

Sure Kyler Murray was terrible for three quarters, but when the game mattered most he made play after big play to salvage a come-from-behind tie with the Detroit Lions. The biggest thing you look for in a quarterback ,or at least the biggest thing I look for in a quarterback, is the ability, when everything is falling apart, to regroup and fix it. Murray did just that.

4) Brissett was good enough, but Vinatieri was not

Jacoby Brissettย had an impressive day in his first game as theย Colts starter. If it wasn’t for poor performances by the special teams and defense in the first half, the team could’ve won the game. Running back Marlon Mack was outstanding and T.Y. Hilton was, well, T.Y. Hilton. but on this day it wasn’t enough as legendary kicker Adam Vinitari had the worst day of a Hall of Fame career missing an extra point and two field goals in an overtime loss to the Chargers.

5) The Miami Dolphins made Lamar Jackson look like Tom Brady

Jackson completed his first 10 passes, including 4 for scores, and finished with 324 yards passing and 5 TD passes, while only playing three quarters. The Dolphins are a dumpster fire and the only way they win a game this season will be if the other team fails to show up!

6) Bobby Hart and Andre Smith are absolutely pathetic

Andy Dalton and the rest of the Cincinnati Bengals dominated the Seattle Seahawks in Seattle on Sunday, out-gaining the Seahawks by 200 yards in total offense. They lost because for some reason they started Bobby Hart and the immortal Bengals bust Andre Smith at right and left tackle. It’s typical Bengals as they have not addressed the offensive line the way they should have over the past 5 years, drafting bust after bust. If the Bengals had a decent line that just might be a playoff team but they don’t and that will make for a long season for quarterback Andy Dalton and whichever Quarterback comes into play after this pathetic excuse for a line gets him hurt.

7) Dak is legit and the Boys offense looked explosive

Prescott started off on fire, earning a career-high 256 yards passing yards, and finishing with 405 and completing 78 percent of his passes for a perfect 153.8 passer rating. The first game of new offensive coordinator Kellen Moore era was a masterpiece. The Cowboys new OC deploy a host of play-actions to open up the middle of the field for Dak, repeatedly sent multiple players in motion, and called plenty of shots downfield. The Boys looked a little like a CFL team with all of the motion to get defenders out of position. Dak spread the ball around like never before. The question now is was this because the Cowboys offense is that good or the Giants defense is just that bad. In my opinion, a little of both is probably true.
