So, how does this work?  Worst business plan ever?  Chickfila still closing it’s store in the new Falcons stadium on Sundays.  They will be open for only 1 Falcons game during the season…..LOL wow.

You think they built a $1.6 billion stadium to only open it on Sundays? 

CFA is headquartered in Atlanta.  It’s only natural they would want their name attached to the gem of the city.

Bears announce they are starting Trubisky after Watson dominated Sunday after becoming the starter.  Texans took some heat this week of not starting Watson from the start (HMMMMMMM where have we seen that before???).  Now I guess the Bears are hoping to have the same success?

Not gonna lie, I hope it doesn’t work out quite like Watson has.

Terrible injury night for KC and Houston tonight.  JJ Watt(season), Mercilus (chest), Kelce (concussion), and 2 KC WR’s I believe (one torn Achilles that was easily seen in replay). 

KC only punted twice all night.  Alex Smith looks like a superstar this year.  This is the team to beat. 

Watson’s OL was pretty bad tonight despite only 3 or 4 rushing most of the time.  Honestly he got damn lucky with his hail Mary at the end but he let Nuk win the 50/50 balls. 
16/31 261-YDS 8.4-YPA 5-TD 0-INT Sack 3-13 RTG119.8
I don’t care if it wasn’t perfect looking 5 TD’s and 0 INT’s is a damn good night for a QB in the NFL, much less a rookie.

Houston has their QB, now they need to build him an Oline.  Watson should have good staying power in the league if he keeps this up.  Great stats for him, despite a loss.  Imagine him with a good Oline and/or some more experience….

I give them credit for putting their money where their mouth is. Standing on principle at the own financial sacrifice is impressive.

I agree. It does sound funny though. There will be a lot of other events and the Falcons games will result in them missing about 7 or 8 possible business days. I’m sure a company like that is pretty good at examining the numbers by now.

Bears didn’t win, but Trubisky will work out. Just need OL, WR’s, and TE to help out.

I am extremely please to see how well Deshaun Watson is transitioning to the Pro Game.  He looks better than most of the veterans playing right now.

If he stays healthy, he could be something special for many years to come.

I beat up the the Team that past on him (Cleveland Brown) soundly…He even gave a game ball to a 9yr old boy that was having his birthday and put up a sign asking for a game ball…The little gestures like make this kid special…I hope the “Business” of the NFL doesn’t change him

Watson doing work AGAIN.  402 passing 67 rushing 4-TD 3-INT (one in garbage time, one pick 6)

He’s still learning but he isn’t scared to try to make a play.  His defense needs to tighten up.  They’ve lost games while scoring 33, 34, & 38 points.

Easy choice for rookie of the year IMO.

We see them weekly, but these tweets really show how special Watson is, and is going to be going forward.  He could be one of the greats if he keeps it up and stays healthy.  He seems to be gaining a lot of respect in the league very quickly.  Man, we should of had 2 National Titles with him on the roster.

I’m laughing at all the teams that passed on him, but know he went to the best spot possible as high as he could.  He has the tools with him.

Well KC is a good team too but Alex Smith is playing like a man on a mission.  I was nervous about the Seahawks since they have a potent pass defense but he made it look easy again.  Watch out because Watson isn’t playing for ROTY, he’s playing for MVP.  No I don’t think he’ll really get there but damn if he won’t be in the conversation if he keeps this up.  He is on track to CRUSH the rookie TD record (26 I think).  This offense finally has a reason to play hard and they are showing up. 

I know the Texans have some guys hurt but they were giving up a lot of points before they got hurt.  They need to tighten that shit up.

I am delighted to see DW4 and Nuk continue to show off and and make the Texans one of the most potent offenses in the NFL.

I also have both of them on my fantasy league and that makes me happy…

But they (the Texans) got a little Karma in losing the game. There are better ways to protest than what they are doing.

The Texans could get the majority of the fans behind them had they changed up the way the wanted to expressed their feelings by crapping on the National Anthem.

Noncontact torn ACL year for Watson today.  Out for season. 

In other news my dad broke his leg in 3 places today.  I’m blaming both of these events on Georgia tech.
