  1. Did none of the rest of you watch the game? Miami was getting tons of pressure. When this happens, RBs & TEs are kept in to pass pro; so Vereen ran far fewer routes. When Vereen did run a route, it was usually from the backfield, and Brady had to throw the ball too soon; sometimes into the dirt at Vereen's feet; many times to quicker developing routes run by Smurfs2.0. The questions we should be asking are: 1) Will the Ravens employ the same sort of gameplan? 2) Can they execute it as well (or better) than the Dolphins? 3) If so, how will BB & McDaniels deal with it this week? Even if you think the worst, I don't see how anyone can sit Vereen in PRR. I know I'm starting him in my championship.
  2. I'm playing for a championship with Harvin on my bench ($3 waivers). I'm a big fan of holding players. While Harvin hasn't helped me at all, Gordon, Blackmon, Vereen & A. Brown have all done their part to get me to the championship. You take the good with the bad. The people in this thread that were absolutely certain Harvin would be contributing by now were fools, and the people that were absolutely certain he would not be contributing were fools too. Like Voltaire said, "Doubt is not a pleasant state of mind, but certainty is a ridiculous one."
  3. Here's why you can't play the what-if game on Allen's first TD; that play is a perfect example of what Allen brings as a WR. He's athletic, big, strong, and has a nose for the end zone. He's one of only a handful of guys in the league who would have scored on that play. That's why he should be in your fantasy lineup. I love Keenan Allen. He is a remarkable, unique blend of small guy quicks/route running in a big guy body. As talented as he is, we can't expect him to score every single time he touches the ball! He's only touched the ball 5 times in the last 126 minutes of play. If that continues, he's eventually going to put up a stinker. When was the last time you saw a guy catch two TD passes and still not reach his widely projected point total for a week?
  4. You're aware they played just a month ago, right? In that game, the Broncos went into halftime ahead 21-6, yet the Chargers ran the ball 35 times and passed it 29 times. As an Allen owner, I'm hoping they realize it's more important to score TDs on every single drive than it is to milk the clock, but I'm worried they'll just roll out version two of the ball control gameplan they used last time. why would go with the same game plan that you lost with? Because it can work. This time the Chargers passed the ball 20 times and ran it 44 times. If DRC doesn't drop his man coverage or if either of the other Bronco DBs make a tackle, K. Allen's stat line is 2-28 1TD. ...and it's going to be the Ryan Matthews show again next week against the Raiders. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad his two receptions were TDs, but I'm not terribly comfortable starting the Leroy Hoard of WRs.

  6. The biggest concern for the entire SD pass offense is that the Chargers may try to "slow the game down," "keep the ball out of Manning's hands," and "keep their defense off the field." If announcers are spouting those cliche's in the first quarter, it could mean trouble for the SD passing game. That was what happened the first time they played, and it's my chief concern.
  7. Exactly my concern as well.... Seems like it should be a shootout. .. not sure how you can sit any broncos or chargers in this one In the first game, the Chargers tried to run the ball a LOT to "keep Manning off the field." I hope they now realize the primary objective should be to score TDs.
  8. Flash reminds me of drafting a system generated WR with 99 speed in Madden. One missed tackle, one failed attempt at playing the ball, and he's gone. At some point, that has to get in the head of DBs, "Okay...don't play the ball; just make the tackle. Don't let him behind you. Don't jump anything short, but don't wait to close on him when he does catch something short..... Oh ####, here we go..." edit: If Weeden clears the concussion protocol, who starts next week? As good as Gordon's day was, I think it would have been even better with Weeden force feeding him the ball.
  9. not all blizes turn into actual pressure. I imagine most QBs have pretty poor ratings on plays where they are pressured (includes all sacks, hit as throwing, intentionally throwing the ball away, etc.).
  10. PPR? Even after Brown's 14 for 35 performance?
  11. He also had 3/44/0 v Bal with Campbell as his starter. Didn't Gordon also have 15 targets in that game? It was the windy/rainy game as well, in which both Flaco and Campbell had horrible completion percentages.
  12. Bring home the bacon Keenan! 14 NYG 15 @Den 16 Oak The NYG matchup doesn't look as juicy as it did a month ago though. Since their bye, the Giants have held the Raiders, Cowboys and Redskins in check (with the Packers doing well against them). I hope the announcers don't talk about how few sacks Tuck has had; causing him to go off again.
  13. Now that Foles has played well at home, are we blaming the Dallas game on his groin?
  14. Anyone? Maybe the rain was causing problems? Gordon was off his game when it rained in GB earlier in the year. I thought most of that was not trying hard for Weeden (and Weeden sucking), but maybe Gordon doesn't like rain?
  15. Did anyone watch the entire game last week? How did he only catch 5 balls on 15 targets?! fwiw - Ike Taylor had safety help with Calvin the entire second half of the Lions game.
