The Confusing

  1. Audie Cole as a team captain.  I love Cole.  I do.  But seeing him as a team captain is weird.  Personally, I’d love for it to be someone who wears the dot on defense, like Anthony Barr or a cornerstone like Harrison Smith, but the decision to make Cole the captain was odd.
  2. The Chargers trading away Sirles.  With all the problems on their offensive line, I bet they with they had the solid guy that can play any spot on the line back.  The fact they were willing to let him go confused me in the first place, but considering their continual problem with health, he would have been valuable.
  3. CBS switching to a ‘more competitive game’.  I’m a Minnesota Vikings fan.  I tuned into this game to watch the Minnesota Vikings.  I don’t care if they’re winning by 500, I want to finish watching the game, not change to watch a game between to AFC teams that I don’t give a flip about.
  4. When will we finally see Stefon Diggs?  It’s nitpicking, but I’d love to see this exciting young wide receiver in action.  I know the team already has 5 active wide receivers and making space for him is tough…but I just want to see what he does in a regular season NFL game.
