  1. JAX @ HOU here... throwin' the native-Houstonian wife a bone.
  2. We have a WINNER!!! Bingo... It's how the Officials are "trained". Let the close turnover calls go and get corrected, if necessary, by replay... which is automatic after every turnover.

    2019 Browns Board Fantasy Football

    lol... Pats D put up 37 points today...
  4. I can't fault the decision... play for the win on the road/ tie at home... plus JAX had the Momo on their side... ... but the playcall??? It was Minshoe (?) that had it going. I have to put the ball in his hands on a boot right from the left hash. Also onto LAR-NO... now with commercial checks of the mix channel.

    This Week in the AFC North

    Pretty much a "meh" start... Once again into the breach. San Francisco @ Cincinnati (-1.5) -- Sun 09/15 12:00 PM And we have our first Pro line-flipper of 2019... The line opened Monday with the Bagels as 2-point dogs at home. Suddenly Tuesday they were 1-point favs. Wha-happened??? Since there were no injury surprises overnite... neither negative ones for SF nor positive ones for Cinci... that leaves only one possibility: A TON of $$$ came in Monday on Cinci +2 so to entice $$$ to the SF side, they had to flip the line. I'm nervous about backing Jimmy G... cause he seems to be playing nervous. The only other thing is that it's going to be warm (mid-80's) in Cinci today. And if you've ever been on the banks of the Ohio on a warm day you know how miserable that can be. SF (the world's only air conditioned city) is less preared for that kinda heat, but it's the only heat they'll face all day. Vegas simply does not get opening lines that wrong. So... Prediction: SF 24 CIN 19 Arizona @ Baltimore (-13.5) -- Sun 09/15 12:00 PM There are two teams in the NFL that should be prepared to face either Jackson or Murray... and they play each other today. Theoretically that should neutralize the uniqueness of each QB inside their own Conference... and since it's my theory I just look at the Ravens superiority almost everywhere else (a healthy D. Johnson gives AZ the RB edge). Plus there's the home field. Plus plus Jackson has the experience edge... Prediction: BLT 34 AZ 17 Seattle @ Pittsburgh (-4.0) -- Sun 09/15 12:00 PM Odd that this pairing started the week as an "Off". Both teams are healthy... both lineups are set... While I expect the Steelers to improve as the season goes on and their young replacements gain experience, they won't this week. Right now they are "sneaky bad". Now meet the Seahawks, who are "sneaky good". While Russell won't sneak up on anyone, Chris Carson will. And that D may be diminished on paper, but they played very well as a unit last week once they woke up. Prediction: SEA 23 PTG 17 Cleveland @ New York (NYJ)(+2.5) -- Mon 09/16 07:15 PM Now or never... Our personnel bests there's across the board... excepting OL taken en masse. I think we are pissed off and the J-E-T-S Jets-Jets Jets pay the price-price-price. Prediction: CLE 45 NYJ 13

  11. My first take was I'd agree... except have you looked at this year's nominees? Time for a new thread...
  12. Check out the two throws cued up and get back to me... Ball goes from breast plate to back shoulder to gone... effortlessly. Same whether set (play #1) or on the move under pressure (play #2) which means it's innate/baked-in.
  13. True in most, but not all, cases... Just did a post on the WSU, Senior QB over in the college section. He impressed the shit outta me last nite and he's starting for the first time this season. Good size.... good mobility... strong enough arm... goes thru progressions... and has the quickest release I've seen since Marino. Passing Year School Conf Class Pos G Cmp Att Pct Yds Y/A AY/A TD Int Rate Career Washington State 99 127 78.0 1341 10.6 11.4 12 3 193.1 *2017 Washington State Pac-12 SO QB *2018 Washington State Pac-12 JR QB 2 3 5 60.0 17 3.4 -5.6 0 1 48.6 2019 Washington State Pac-12 SR QB 3 96 122 78.7 1324 10.9 12.1 12 2 199.0
  14. Biggest "Questionable" is Mosely (groin)... and not looking promising for him as he did not practice yesterday.

    27-13 is decisive???

    The official Terry Pluto thread

    Well.... at least Terry ain't skurred this week.
  17. Anthony Gordon (QB) WSU... Saw him carve up UH last nite. Kid has the quickest release I've seen since Marino. Good size at 6'3... plenty of arm... mobility... and he goes thru progressions. Get on this kid early, cause it's gonna get really crowded fast...
  18. ... and people say Hue Jackson couldn't motivate players...

    Darnold ruled out for Monday

    Frickin' kid... The list of backups that have beaten us is long, if not distinguished... I remember: an ancient George Blanda leading a Raider comeback in OAK. Cardinal QB Jim Hart coming off the bench for an injured Charlie Johnson to lead a comeback at Muni.
  20. Ummmmm... the Yahoo line froze on Thursday, h... Thus my use f the past tense, "stayed"...
  21. Big year for Mitch... has to prove himself this year and so far he hasn't. The physical tools are there. The Head? Not so much...

    Don't mind at all... Maybe you'll post more post-retirement...

    Darnold ruled out for Monday

    And it ain't just Darnold they might be missing...
  24. Plus the Yahoo line stayed at -2.5... Really the only line I care about.

    Rob Ninkovich had the line of the day on NFL Live... "Mono? What is this High School?"
