Week 2 NFL roundup: Play on the field may be trash but Beast Mode back
With Week 2 of the NFL season in the books there’s been a lot of talk about the quality of the product on the field.
Sloppy play and quarterbacking displays that leave a little to be desired have seen some lopsided scores and questions over why teams are employing players like Blake Bortles.
But we’re all brainwashed anyways. It doesn’t seem to matter what the NFL does, they have millions of Americans locked in and that’s not changing anytime soon.
I’ve had my own personal dilemma with watching the NFL, as more and more studies come out about the longterm effects of the game of football on the human brain, but here I am, mainlining Red Zone and refreshing my fantasy apps maniacally.
The NFL will always provide entertainment, even if the product seems to be increasingly diluted. Let’s take a look around the league at some of the highlights from another Sunday of FOOTBAW.
