  1. Starting with confidence. I only need 45 points from him to win.
  2. Don't even get me started on the actual play itself. If you want to see a weak, effeminate, soft-as-sh*t player whose wife is probably being serviced on the side, take a look at the dainty, timid way Hekker reaches out instead of grittily, hungrily, ANGRILY balling out to seal that first down. This Rams team is just permeated with softness.
  3. If you actually watched the game, NO moved the ball AT WILL. The Rams could not run and could only sporadically pass. It was easy for NO to score. LA had to work for every point they got, including that ridiculous Malcolm Brown two-tap job. Sean McVay is the epitome of LA. Young, flashy, thinks he's the sh*t, hot-dogging it, and deciding to drop his n*ts on NO in their own building, instead of deciding to TAKE THE LEAD in a game that was tied. He didn't call the play because he was worried about it being a shootout; he called it because he literally thinks he's the sh*t. NO steadily built their defense over a number of years and they will be in the Super Bowl, if not win it all. They are a fearsome juggernaut. They should have been in the SB last year, if not for one blown coverage with the Diggs catch. And I'm a Patriots fan. LA is a flashy, great offensive team whose defense gets EXPOSED time and time again. They will beat the teams with inferior offenses and completely stall out against well-balanced teams like NO and others, as was EXACTLY PROVEN. That being said, Greg the Leg is still the man.
  4. It was a terrible call because Sean McVay thinks he's the hottest thing since sliced bread. He got his sh*t pushed in by a NO squad that actually HAS a defense, unlike the Rams' Swiss Cheese embarrassment of a joke they trot out there. Rams will be perennial jokes as long as that is their defense. NO used to be like them - high-powered offense with zero D. Then they wised up and got some playmakers on the other side of the ball. Now they'll be in the Super Bowl representing the NFC. That being said, Greg the Leg is still money. If you want to be angry, be angry he missed that 50-yarder. That would have taken his day from a very good to great.
  5. It's possible to say both that Hill's output is rewarding and exciting on those two monster weeks and disappointing and flaccid on those others - especially for a 2nd round pick, as he was for many people. I personally had been disappointed with his recent output and think that this game was largely an aberration considering they were bottling up Kelce. Doesn't mean I won't take it. But looking back, I would have rather drafted Thielen or Michael Thomas.
  6. Ekeler is so talented he has been busting TD's with his tiny touches. One of these games he won't and will put up pedestrian numbers, like 5 or 6 points.
  7. Any thoughts on his Sunday performance? Is his leg slipping a bit? 2 missed field goals is unacceptable, in my opinion.
  8. People consistently have the wrong discussions in player threads. The discussion should be about a player's classification: RB1, RB2, RB3. Hines is a RB3 with occasional upside. That means he's a solid flex. He catches a lot of balls, TY Hilton is injured, and the Colts will be losing a lot. 10 points in half PPR is a safe expectation, with an occasional TD thrown in here and there.
  9. Always amusing when people say what the Patriots do is easy... they're one of the best-coached and most intelligent teams out there. If White is open, it's because they're intentionally stretching the field with their other receivers and the defense is choosing to defend him last, OR it's because his quickness (not speed) allows him to make 1 move 5 yards out to get open. The Pats like shifty, agile guys for this reason, so they can make one move and get open 6 yards out. Throwing to a runningback for 5 yards who then picks the perfect angle to gain another 2 yards after catch is not something that just happens. Watch James White and you will see his angles are always excellent. He maximizes every single catch. The reason other teams don't do it is because they don't have the discipline for it. If it really was so easy, other teams would do it. But to methodically pick your way down the field 7 yards at a time requires patience and discipline. The Patriots select quick, agile receivers like Edelman and White for that reason, because it's one of the HIGHEST-PERCENTAGE and LOW-RISK plays in football. Consistency, consistency, consistency... The hits he took were beyond idiotic, put the team at risk, and BOB should have benched him for a series just to teach him a lesson. He will have the career of RGIII if he keeps this up.
  10. One of the most valuable handcuffs in fantasy this season.
  11. Caught 6 or 7 balls. Thoughts? Anything here?
  12. It seems bizarre. You get the ball with 1st down at literally the 1 yard line. Why not bring every fat offensive lineman, every fat tight end, and throw a full back in for good measure, and just call a power run play? You risk nothing but 1 down. Makes absolutely zero sense. When Watson threw it to him, he caught it, turned and usually leapt forward to extend the play. Doesn't jump off the screen at you, but I thought he was a very solid player. Was always available in the flat or down low and always caught the ball. If the Texans incorporated Blue as a check-down back whenever Hopkins and Fuller aren't open, they would score a ton of points. It would also pull the defense down, thus opening up top. Watson is the problem. I saw him take 4 or 5 hits that if I saw Tom Brady take even one of those, I would think he was a flaming idiot. Guy is going to get himself injured if he keeps playing stupid like that. Use Blue as the checkdown, mix in the tight end Griffin, and hit Hopkins, Fuller, and Coutee for intermediate to big plays. It's a winning formula. Their running game is dead. But Houston seems very, very dumb.
  13. The receiver has the option to run multiple routes, depending on the coverage and the way the defense is playing. Also depending on blitzes sometimes.
