  1. You could be right Geno could stink, but Jets should have seen if he stinks less than Fitz. Fitz is not good and never has been. Even last year although there was some moments of good mixed in there really was a lot of not very good as has been written and discussed plenty of times. Fitz is an above average back up qb and has fooled teams into getting starter money only to let them down. He is on his 6 th NFL team and as mentioned have never made the playoffs. He is 33 years of age and not going to suddenly become good. He is what he is.
  2. The play was to start Geno and see if he stinks and or maybe he has gotten better. He may have failed, but at lease there was some upside there in terms of you don't know who Geno can be. They have drafted a couple of younger guys and perhaps it is there turn to get a look after this year. Starting and rolling out Fitz this year was the definition of banging your head against the wall.
  3. When you put your trust in Ryan Fitzpatrick this is what happens. To think Jets fans everywhere where shouting how much they needed Fitz. He is the biggest definition of fools gold going. This is his 12th year in the league and he has never played a playoff game.
  4. Guys that put up stats like Hill did all of last year and through 2 games this year get phased out of offenses pretty quickly if that trend continues. You have highlighted he has scored td's which is nice and all and which may take a certain skill set to be elite at but you can find other players that started out scoring td's and became nothing more than back ups and or just became guys. Trent Richardson had 11 as a rookie, Brandon Jacobs had 16 his first 2 years, Alfred Morris had 20 through his first 2 years and it looks as though Hill is trending towards those career paths at this stage in time. Outside of Hill scoring TD's can you explain what Hill has done through the last 18 games that should have anyone excited about him moving forward? I may be wrong and he may starting playing better but as of right now he really does not look very good.
  5. Started slow last year? Did he every get better? I am talking about actual NFL ability vs fantasy and even then you are being generous. I pointed out the TD's because he would have had even more crappy games than he had last year due to punching in some td's which saved some weeks. His year end stats ended up looking better than they were in fantasy due to those TD's. When he was scoring some of those td's I am assuming he was on peoples benches because he was putting up so many clunkers that people stopped playing him. He had 223 carries last year and finished with a minuscule 794 yards, which was good enough for 18th in total rushing yards. There was 8 rbs that had more yards than him with less carries. He also was not able to create big plays and or catch passes. It could be argued he was one of the bottom 5 starting rbs in the NFL last year. I know a lot of the footballguys staff were drooling over Hill and that rookie year. He is the second best RB on his team and Hill is again off to a slow/normal start? Regardless Cincy looks much better with Gio as the guy or at least as the guy who should garner more touches.
  6. All rb's get hurt. Big rb's, small rb's, medium sized rb's. Injuries are most times just bad luck.
  7. Buy low? He was awful last year but was fortunate enough to get some td's to make his year look better than it was. He really looks bad going on 2 years in a row.
  8. This guy stinks. Somehow Cincy continue to try to get him involved. Cincy would be a much better team if they just moved away from Hill and made Gio the guy there. Hill looks like a back up NFL rb. He is slow to the holes, has no burst and can't make a guy miss. He had a good run 2 years as a rookie in the second half, but he is looking more like a Trent Richardson clone.
  9. This could be a blessing in disguise for SD as they are forced to use Gordon as not only the primary guy but the every down guy and his dual threat ability will be on display moving forward. He seems like he will be a guy that will get better with more touches and being used in all facets of the game. I do hate seeing this with Woodhead though as he worked his way as an underdog RB, into one of the premier receiving backs in the game.
  10. Greg Roman has notoriously not thrown the dam ball in a passing league. He has been an offensive coordinator for 5 seasons prior to this year. He has ranked in the bottom 3 for passing attempts in all 5 of those seasons. He has only once had a team that finished outside of the bottom 5 in passing yards. Just an embarrassing coordinator. It would not take much for any coordinator to throw more than this guy. I don't think he lands a job again for years in the NFL.
  11. I have no idea what to think with this team. A couple of thoughts though. Last year they were 8-8 which is ok. Rex tends to get some things right and some other things wrong this much we know. I don't know if it was the defensive scheme was a problem vs the Jets or was it the WR's just flat out beat up on the Bills secondary? It also looked like Fitz had a ton of time and or confidence to just chuck the ball to his receivers and let them make plays. The offense was not good in the game despite them scoring 24 points. They did not sustain any long drives and the only things that were positive was Taylor making plays as opposed to considering good offensive coordinating. Last week the offense let them down in a game they probably should have won. Roman seemed to struggle to get Sammy involved enough ever in his time as the coordinator; that is embarrassing from any coordinator who needed to make him the priority. Game 1 he did not do it and game 2 he did not do it. I get Watkins was slightly hurting this passed week but he was playing and looked adequate enough to make some plays. They lost to a good Jets team at home and lost to a who knows what type of Ravens team on the road. I really have no idea who the Bills are.
  12. Gordon is the superior back to Woodhead and it is not really close. Woodhead is a proven 3rd down receiving back that has a role. If the Chargers planning on being successful post Allen injury then need to allow Gordon to be more of a factor. Woodhead has proven to be a back up running back in the NFL that is a very good receiving back. There was a couple of holes in that last game that Woodhead was running through and getting to the second level that had it been Gordon it may have been bigger gains. Gordon is bigger, stronger and faster. They oddly switched more to Woodhead in the 2nd half with the lead. There is/was no need to give Woodhead more rushing attempts than Gordon, that was just poor coaching. Woodehead has played 8 seasons in the NFL and has averaged 5.1 rushing attempts per game. Heck even his time in SD(the last 3 years) he has averaged 5.9 rushing attempts per game for a whopping 3.3 ypc. There was no need to give Woodhead 16 attempts in that game when you were up multiple scores and your prized 1st round pick from last year was having himself a game. For those who were not watching Gordon looked really good hitting holes hard, taking what was given to him and being patient when he needed to be. This is not a hit on Woodhead who as I acknowledged played well, but SD will not be successful if Woodhead is playing more snaps than Gordon.
  13. I am confused. Yeldon averaged 4.1 ypc as a rookie. He had a bad week no doubt, but so did Gurley, Elliot and countless others.
  14. A couple of thoughts. I was able to watch most of the game. The SD O line is much improved. This will be good for Gordon and Woodhead. Woodhead did get a ton of snaps and looked good. Gordon also looked good. Gordon is not going to end the year with 0 receptions here either guys. He will get worked into the passing game at least some. This at times will be a frustrating season. Gordon looks vastly better all be it a small sample size and should hopefully be worked in as the guy getting lion share of the work and Woodhead as more of 3 down COP guy. The issue will be when Chargers are playing from behind it could spell very limited snaps for Gordon which will suck.
  15. Ya I think he is ok.
