  1. I think Michael Thomas is in for a surprise. He never saw any double coverage with Cooks on the field. I am glad to see Cooks out of NO. They never used him to his full potential. Sending him on fly patterns on every play made no sense. I would like to have seen them use him with more screens and slants and see what he could do with the ball after the catch. I suppose Ginn is gonna stretch the field every play now opening things up for Thomas? LOL.
  2. How would a fumble be scored? Same way? Also - how would fantasy sites count a 2pt attempt that is returned the other way?
  3. Yesterday Ben Roethlisberger threw 3 INT's. (3:42) (Shotgun) 7-B.Roethlisberger pass short right intended for 11-M.Wheaton INTERCEPTED by 77-A.Rubin at PIT 39. 77-A.Rubin to PIT 37 for 2 yards (66-D.DeCastro). (14:18) 7-B.Roethlisberger pass deep left intended for 84-A.Brown INTERCEPTED by 25-R.Sherman at SEA 35. 25-R.Sherman to PIT 39 for 26 yards (84-A.Brown). (Pass formation) TWO-POINT CONVERSION ATTEMPT. 7-B.Roethlisberger pass to 84-A.Brown is incomplete. ATTEMPT FAILS. Seattle #25 Sherman intercepted the pass in the end zone. However his stat line only shows 2 INT's. Our league does not score the 2 point conversion attempt but we feel it should count as an INT and -2 in our scoring system. Because we also award 2 points for completing a 2 pt conversion pass. I tried to search this here in the forums and I don't see it being brought up before. We host our league on myfantasyleague which normally has the most complex and complete scoring system. Anyone else dealing with this?
  4. Hoyer over Brees. Can't get past just how bad the Saints defense has been. Eli - 6TDs Mariota - 4TDs Cousins - 4TDs Rob Ryan was fired - so there is a slight fear the new staff might light a spark on that defensive unit. Also a fear that Hoyer coming back from concussion could take an early hit and be knocked out of the game. But I need points and after Gano and Panthers Defense ruined my Thanksgiving, I will be looking for an early Christmas present.
  5. Bell not closeI can't imagine why anyone would possibly accept that deal for Bell. 4 week season apparently.

    Chip Kelly

    Bradford is not better that Foles. That is just insane. Can you find any statistical data to back that up? Or are you going on their draft position or what scouting reports said about these guys 5 years ago?
  7. Apparently Denario Alexander is not available.
  8. Its the system. Any QB can succeed in Chip Kelly's system. That is why it was smart to let Foles go! (Still bitter Foles fan and dynasty owner)
  9. Nick Foles Record as starter under chip Kelly. - 14-4 (0-1 in the playoffs). Perfect System Fit Michael Vick - 2-4 The guy just as good Mark Sanchez - 4-4 Don't sell me the system works for any QB. Because the one guy that does not fit AT ALL is 14-4 as a starter with other worldly numbers in 2013. In 2014 he is 6-2 with no running game (remember how the Eagles lost at the 49ers - afraid the run the ball from the 1" line with the game on the line), offensive line in shambles, and his best deep weapon sent packing. Oh by the way Maclin had his break out year too - thanks to Foles. I never understand why the media and fans don't give Foles his due. Hopefully he will be given a chance in St Louis and continue his career path that in on par with the way Brady started his career. Nick Foles first three seasons (as the unwanted guy) 28 games - QBR 94.2, 61.6% completion, 46 TD 17 INT. Tom Brady first three seasons - 32 games - QBR 85.8, 62.6% completion, 46 TD 26 INT. Here's to hoping Nick goes on to have a great career and prayers Sam Bradford can survive an NFL season.

    Nick Foles vs Andrew Luck

    Blame the refs.... Luck got screwed. Didn't the comeback kid get the ball back with 3 minutes to go and fail to get a first down? Rotoworld Andrew Luck completed 20-of-34 passes for 172 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception in the Colts' 30-27, Week 2 loss to the Eagles on Monday night. Luck saved his night with the three touchdowns, but he could have easily tossed three or four more interceptions. And the interception he did throw shouldn't have been one, as T.Y. Hilton was completely mugged on the play. The 5.1 YPA average is nearly two yards off his career mark. OC Pep Hamilton continues to be the problem in Indy. He consistently dialed up runs to Trent Richardson, who was having an okay night, but not a good enough one to warrant 22 touches. When Luck was asked to throw, it was short passes. The Colts travel to Jacksonville in Week 3. Luck is an obvious QB1 in a favorable matchup. Sep 15 - 11:41 PM I like how Luck apologists point to Foles numbers being exaggerated by dump off passes to sproles and watching him do all the work. But did'nt Luck throw two tds to his RB? I guess the same rules don't apply. Should have been a 3-4 interception night for Luck. But the Colts lost because of the refs.....

    The Nick Foles era

    The stat line is deceiving. Foles couldn't complete anything downfield outside of a couple shots to Zach Ertz. Instead, he simply dumped balls off to Darren Sproles and LeSean McCoy and let them do all the dirty work. Foles just isn't seeing the field like he did in 2013. He'd be a bigger story if the Eagles hadn't been able to overcome 14-point halftime deficits in back-to-back weeks. He missed a wide-open Jeremy Maclin in the end zone Monday, and threw another pass well behind Ertz. Foles will remain on the QB1 map next week vs. Washington. Sep 15 - 11:48 PM Rotoworld: Foles didn't win the game for his team. Luck didn't lose it.Now exchange the fortunes of Foles and Luck and what's the narrative?Rotoworld: Andrew Luck, the King of All Qbs, does it again singlehandedly dominating the Eagles Monday night. Nick Foles again sucks so hard it hurts. Start looking at Sanchez in the next few weeks.I noticed how Rotoworld does not mention that the 1TD night could have easily been 3TD's if Cooper and Celek did not drop TD passes.

    Nick Foles vs Andrew Luck

    At least Foles did not throw a costly INT while in FG range where they could have gone up by two scores - which then led directly to the game tying TD drive. Then come back out with a chance to win the game with 3 minutes left and go 3 and out - leading directly to the game winning FG. Luck lost this game tonight. Foles won't get any credit again. Media will blame bad calls and Trent Richardson for the loss - Luck is just bullet proof as he has been anointed the next great one.

    Nick Foles vs Andrew Luck

    While we're doing hypotheticals, imagine Foles was a 1st round pick and Luck was a 4th. Would people still feel the same about Luck given what he's accomplished so far?Luck has taken a team that was the worst in all of football the year before he got there to the playoffs in back to back years and won a playoff game last year. Yeah, I think people would still feel the same about Luck. Foles, I don't know.And Foles took over a team that was 4-12 the previous year and had a 2-4 record before getting his chance to start. Then went 8-2 to win the division and had a lead the last time he was on the field in their only playoff game. I wonder if Foles threw 3 INT's that game against the Saints but won (helped by the star player got hurt (IE Jamal Charles)) - then the next week goes to Seattle and throw's 4 INT's in a total white wash loss - if we would still be talking about Foles as a guy who is going to be a 10 year starter. Gotta give the NE Defense credit though. They faced the likes of EJ Manual, Geno Smith 2x, Josh Freeman, Case Keenam, Jason Campbell, Ryan Tennehill 2x, Thaddeus Lewis and only managed to intercept one QB 4 times in a game. Andrew Luck! Just gotta give Luck the free pass. He is a gamer! The #1 pick! The once in a generation talent! ESPN and Mel Kiper say so!

    Nick Foles vs Andrew Luck

    yet he was unable to win the starting joblook i am not syaing he sucks, i am saying everyone, including Chip Kelly, looked at his work and thought he was not an elite QB last year he proved them all wrong, but he still has to prove he can sustain that success, and i don't mean to that exact level, but he has to show he can be an elite QB. There is every chance he does that this season, but i thin there are a lot of questions that make me think he could fall short. That is what is great about this game, he may be the next great star and lift a lot of fantasy teams to their titles, or he could struggle and ruin a lot of teams. If it were simple everyone would get it right and this would be boring.The book is still out on Foles. Will his season 2 live up to the expectations he now has? If not that does not even rule him out long term. I just think his future is hard to predict If i had to bet i'd bet he does pretty well next season, but not as great as last season, there's just a lot of questions right now to me .I assume that by the time fantasy drafts get going he'll be getting mocked pretty high, probably even above luck based on last season. I think for where he will be drafted i'll be passing on him for someone with fewer questions, and to me that includes Luck. And that's how coaches with 'magical systems' get fired. They watched him play everyday for months and still couldnt ID his talent, so lets not act like they're infallible or he flopped in the preseason. He played better than Vick as a rookie in the preseason too.so what does this say about chip kelly?was it so obvious that Foles is elite that we should question why it took a vick injury for kelly to make the inevitable switch to the superior QB? What if he is making a similar error in other places and playing inferior players while elite talents ride the pine? perhaps they should just consult the shark pool, as we clearly have talent evaluation down to an infallible science Whatever you want it to I guess.Matt Lienart started of Kurt Warner. It happends. Your eyes can deceive you. I think coaches also take a path of least resistance. I think starting Vick last year was the "safe" decision. I don't think the Eagles went into the season thinking they were a playoff team - and seeing what Vick had left was the safe route to start the season. I am sure when Kelly took the job - he looked at the roster and had preconceived notions as to who his starters would be and what type of system he was going to run. Vick was probably the clear choice - since he was way more mobile. Had he started Foles at the start of the season who knows how Vick would have handled it or how the media and fans would have responded. As a first year coach - he had the luxury of being "safe" I will probably get blasted for this - but it is just my opinion. That is why I give Pete Carroll a ton of credit. Deciding to go with Wilson as the starter after signing Matt Flynn to a big contract took some serious balls.
