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.

If you’re happy with good enough, then good enough is what you’ll be. Greatness requires the expectation of excellence.

Clemson fans, if I offer you 4-1 when the calendar turns to October (basically meaning Tigers go 2-1 vs. AUB, at LOU, at VT), do you take it?

Nah, 5-0 sounds better.

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
