Well all true, but when MNF was "Must See" how many channels were there to choose from? It was either MNF, the local news, or Barney Miller. I'd actually take Barney Miller reruns over MNF now.

An another topic.... I read Maroon V is slated to the SB53 Halftime show. I've heard of them. But couldn't name one of their songs. This in and of itself isn't surprising as I couldn't name a Justin Timberlake song, or a Beyonce song, or a Coldplay song, or a Katy Perry song. But I recognize the status in the mainstream consciousness those artists have. So, is Maroon V really at that level? Did some Wiki'ing, and see "Maroon 5 has sold more than 75 million records, making them one of the world's best-selling music artists." Well I'll be damned. I see they also sang that annoying Moves Like Jagger song that you apparently have to have in your repertoire if you are going to be a casino-circuit cover band. So I tangentially know one of their songs I guess.

They are that big.  "Maroon V" is in some respects the "Adam Levine Show" and he's made himself into a mini-mogul.  His band has won multiple Grammy's, he's been a coach on the Voice, he's acted, he's got clothing/perfume brands...  I recognize that some of those things aren't "music", but the point is, he is in the mainstream consciousness.  None of this is to suggest he's unworthy, because he his (check out his rendition of "Purple Rain" from the Howard Stern birthday show, and check out his spot with Sammy Hagar on Rock and Roll Road Show), and he seems a pretty likeable guy for someone that seems to have had all the breaks.

Maroon 5 is actually a solid choice IMO.  I remember laying in bed like 8 years ago and flipping through TV channels and there was a Maroon 5 concert on.  I only knew a song or two, but just started watching because it was a band playing some funky music.  I ended up watching almost the whole concert.  I really liked it and I was surprised as I kind of just thought of them as a pop band, but they weren't.  They were a solid musical band.  I never followed up and kind of forgot about them until recently my gf bringing them up, but Id say I'd look more forward to them than most of the previous SB performers.  (although I am kind of a Justin Timberlake fan now after seeing his show in Amsterdam last month, his show was one of the best of the year for me shockingly).

I can definitely see them doing the halftime show.  They're a big, popular band.

Excited for tonight's game..... good to see one of these snakebitten franchises get a win (there can't be a tie for a 3rd week in a row, can there?!?!?)

Would rather see Darnold vs. Mayfield, but it is what it is.

Agreed re: Maroon 5 Cram. Years ago my family and the other family we were traveling with got to Vegas for a vacation and my dad's casino host offered discount tickets for me, my sister, and the two kids in the other family to go see Maroon 5 that night in our hotel. This was probably somewhere around 2003-2005 and I was very pleasantly surprised by the show they put on.

@DoC fully expecting my Jets to lose tonight. Going to be very tough for Darnold on the road on a short week with Gregg Williams and that defense throwing the kitchen sink at him.

Surprisingly,  Adam Levine shreads as a guitarist.   I couldn't believe it.

When I wiki'ed Adam Levine I was surprised to see he wasn't the guy who was touring with Brian May and Roger Taylor. Turns out that was another Adam.

Anyway, is it wrong to root against the Browns? I said elsewhere I love watching greatness so I do not generally mind seeing dynasties. But the schadenfreude in me also enjoys watching futility.

Tyrod Taylor is awful.  I am already convinced that Hue Jackson is a terrible head coach, but if he doesn't put the rookie in to see what he can do tonight, he ought to be fired before leaving the facility.  The Cleveland crowd is about ready to completely turn on Taylor.

Giving the Browns their first win in almost two years would be the most Jets thing that the Jets could do.

Todd Bowles demonstrated about 8 different reasons why he's a miserable head coach. Mayfield will get all the credit for the win, but ineptitude on the other side really made that possible.
Argument, the presentation of reasonable views, never makes headway against conviction, and conviction takes no part in argument because it knows.

It took three weeks for the Jets to completely ruin their season. It’s honestly impressive how pathetic this team is.

Loved Baker's post-game interview with the NFL Network guys. Diverted credit. Praised Taylor, Landry and Hyde. Head seems to be on straight.

I always feel like I want to like and root for the Jets.  As a Giants fan, I've never considered them rivals, just the other local team.  It's not like Rangers/Devils playing in the same division and hating each other.  But every time I feel like I want to support them, the Jets fans always have to rub it in about the Giants.  It's like a local inferiority complex.  The moment the Jets drafted Darnold it became about the Jets getting the QB for the future while the Giants squandered their future (instead of it just being about the Jets, it has to be a comparison).  It became about shoving it down the Giants throat and that got even louder after week 1.  I'm pretty happy to have watched the end of last nights game and watched all my Jets fans stfu in my group chat with my friends.  I don't think it means Darnold won't have a great future with the Jets, just put their fan base down to ground a little bit at least with regards to rubbing it into Giants fans.

Since the Dodgers didn't play yesterday and my wife and I had a project to do that worked well with random, mindless TV in the background, I watched a good chunk of the game yesterday (starting around 5 minutes left in the first half).  For a game in which I had no real rooting interest, it was actually quite enjoyable.  Hopefully Mayfield can keep it going next week against Vegas.

I don't see him having trouble beating them, even if he's the only Brown on the field.

Todd Haley might be a major prick (okay, probably no might about it), but Mayfield will benefit greatly as a result of his coaching.

On the flip side, Darnold's upside might be limited if the Jets don't get a staff that can coach him up.

Never underestimate the impact of coaching.  Jared Goff went from looking like a total bust under Jeff Fisher to a really good QB under Sean McVay.  The moral of the story is, if you are going to draft a QB at or near the top of the draft, make sure you get someone on your coaching staff who knows how to coach quarterbacks.
