Adrian Peterson: 1 carry, 78 yards, TD

Tacks kickoff returner gives opposition a safety on bone-headed play on opening kick.

Steeler pro bowl C Maurkice Pouncey carted off field. His own RG cut him from behind.

Saints pass defense still looks bad. How does Rob Ryan keep getting jobs as a DC?

Rob Ryan's defensive scheming was the difference in the game with the offense out of sync and putting them in tough positions.

I didn't care for the hire, and I'm still not sure it will be enough.

But there's a huge difference between this year and last year through one week.

Spags is working with the BAL defense, now, and watching that game the other night reminded me of a lot of Saints games last year. We don't have the personnel to be an elite defense, and we are down 3 of our top 6 DL guys. The ones who played had to play a lot and played hard, right up to the last play. they played for Ryan and he deserves some credit for their resiliency, imo

The ATL OL isn't strong so I am not going to bank on a repeat performance.

But I'll take Ryan over Spags any day.

The question is: how does Spags keep getting jobs?

I thought that was going to be a shootout game after Atlanta's first possession, but the Saints defense stepped up and played pretty good today.

There was a late hit on Clay Matthews. Then after the play was over, a fight broke out. They called the late hit on GB and a dead ball retaliation on SF. By the rules, as they called it, the down should have counted, the penalties should have offset, and it should have been 4th down. But they replayed the 3rd down.

IMO, they should have enforced the late hit, and then called the offsetting penalties based on the ensuing skirmish.

They went to that officials guru they always go to and he said the penalties offset and instead of re-playing 3rd down it should have been 4 and 2.

Imo, they should give players leeway when their QB is hit late and illegally out of bounds. You got to be able to stick up for your QB in that situation.

I thought Staley was stupid, but if you noticed, he just went to Mathews and jawed without anything more than grabbing Mathews' jersey. No penalty there, imo.

Oh, absolutely. Staley knows better than that. He should know if he goes over there he's asking for a negating flag.

A short while back the was another unsportsmanlike on SF at the Packers bench. All I saw was a little shove while Packers are giving him an earful after, I might add, he let Rogers go out of bounds unmolested. Bad flag there too.

I could be wrong, but it seems Green Bay is getting some calls today. While the Pack is getting flagged for holding. many holds have gone unnoticed. Happens in most games, I guess.

Agreed. When Ross brought it out and got dropped at the 8 yard line I felt a little less confident in the prospect of OT. Seems the SF defense dialed it up for the stop after that.

NFL needs to go back 10 yards on kickoffs. And they need to give QBs and WRs flags. Those 2 positions can be flag football.

I know - they've absolutely wrecked kickoffs. Such a boneheaded rule change - I don't think I've seen a returnable kick all day.

And it used to be that when a team was down by 8 points or less with a few seconds left, you could say "well, maybe they'll get a great kickoff return so they are still alive". Now? Nope. Dead, since they are almost certain to start at the 20.

The biggest thing I'm left wondering involving the GB-SF game: Why wasn't Clay Matthews flagged for "excessive celebration" after celebrating in CK's face after throwing him to the turf? That's exactly what the NFL is trying to do away with according to this:

The NFL says celebrations like the military salute are a violation only if they are directed at an opponent.

Link (http://blog.chron.com/ultimatetexans/2013/08/j-j-watt-will-keep-his-salute-and-nfl-says-thats-ok/)

I already see this rule pissing me off in the future because it won't be called on a consistent basis.

I agree Rey. It was clear that Old Man Kiffin's strip the ball being hammered in their heads is sinking in. Those defenders were ripping to strip it all night long! Dallas' 0Line did look good. Jerruh might have reached big time for Travis Frederick he looked solid in the opener. If DeMarco Murray can stay healthy they might be able to put together a decent ground game this season.

Pretty wild. Philadelphia comes out on their opening drive, on the road, and stymie the Washington defense on their way all the way down the field. Turns out they fumble the lateral deep in Redskins territory and it goes the other way for six.

Element of surprise, gone. Anticipated lead, gone. Momentum, gone. All that work and you have a 7-0 deficit to a team that hasn't even run a play yet.
