  1. I'll make two comments here. First, I think this is very telling of what the Saints think about every WR NOT name Thomas. Though it seemed Smith had great opportunity with Ginn going down for the year, I would say his and Meredith's stock are at an all time low. Second, as a massive Cowboys fan and Dallas native who has watched every game for as long as I can remember, be careful giving up on Bryant before he gets started. It bears noting that his "ability" took a nose dive when he transitioned from a QB who could make every through to one who is quite obviously limited. I am no Dez-apologist, and I recognize he has his fair share of limitations (mental, route running, etc). But his athletic ability is definitely not one of them. I don't think he'll set the world on fire, but I think he has a great opportunity to be a very serviceable WR that will at least offer bye week coverage and at most finish as a WR2-3 in this pass happy offense. Not bad for a mid-season waiver wire acquisition. I'm sure I'll get lit up for this opinion, but it is my opinion.
  2. There is no one that will replace the connection between Kupp and Goff. Kupp has been his guy since the pre-season of last year. I think the really play ends up being Woods, Woods, and more Woods.
  3. Kupp down on a horse collar and looks bad.
  4. Next series and Kupp still nowhere to be seen.
  5. He was out that entire series. Doesn't bode well for a return.
  6. I think today is just the beginning. The combination of having absolutely no threats in the passing game and losing Travis Frederick (I know it's been said but can't be overstated), I think the team is in for real trouble. I hope I'm wrong as a lifetime Dallas homer, but Frederick brought the attitude that the whole line fed off of. If you can use this "decent day against a great D" tactic, I would try and unload him if possible. Nothing but 8-9 man fronts all year long.
  7. I hate to be a downer, but I think this is going to be an awful week for Douggie, though I hope I'm wrong as an owner. Nonetheless, the Jets will have no one to key on in the offense besides Martin with both Winston and Evans out this game. I think the offense is going to struggle the entire game and it's going to be a little ugly.
  8. For those employing a defensive streaming strategy, I strongly second the NO Def/ST pick up. Might be outdoors, but after another pretty strong showing again a good offensive team mixed with no Rodgers... I am totally drinking the Kool-Aid.
  9. The Carolina passing game/offense is in complete disarray, but someone has to catch passes. Though McCaffrey very well may hoover up most of that volume, Funchess should be an add in long bench leagues. There's really no one else with talent left to catch the ball.
  10. Bortles threw for a whopping 125 yds on 11 completions. That's a good stat line if they all go to one WR, but I think the offensive blueprint doesn't paint a rosy picture for anyone not named Fournette.
  11. You do realize that the link even speaks to the fact that Washington was more successful in preseason, right? There are a number of posts about this, but Washington certainly seems to be the more talented back behind Lynch.
  12. For those in need after losing CJA this week, Rob Kelley presents a nice 1 week bandaid with Matt Jones officially sitting.
  13. With his miserable showing this weekend and bye weeks here, Chris Hogan may have been dropped. With Brady back he should be a money train moving forward.
  14. There's no question that Randle outperformed DMC based on last night's performance, but that is setting a very low bar. DMC absolutely got owned by the 49ers first teamers. No wiggle, no lateral movement, no ability to even optimize what he was given...while he was in for 6 plays. Randle undoubtedly looked better running, but this was against 1.5 and 2nd teamers. He ran hard, he got what he was given and sometime a little more, and he should get credit for doing all this a bit dinged. However, this offense begins and ends with the assured health of Tony Romo. Without him, the season is over as evidenced by the play of Weeden and others. Randle looked very bad in passing protection last night, and that is going to be a crucial aspect of the starting RBs job. As a Cowboys homer, he has never impressed me from a pass pro stance, and so that may keep him off the field. As bad as DMC's rushing ability is, word is he is decent at protecting the QB (must admit I haven't watched a lot of Raiders games over recent years). It would be naïve to think this won't play into coaches decisions about who ends up on the field for the most snaps come Sundays this fall.
  15. Interested to hear people's take on the situation after tonight's game. DMC looked completely horrible. He lacked any element of speed in hitting the hole, he dropped on first contact, and he had no elusiveness in admittedly limited work. Randle looked a lot better running but it was after many of the defensive first teamers were out, and his pass blocking was completely atrocious. This backfield continues to appear clear as mud. Hopefully next week someone will start to stand out, but I'm definitely not holding my breath.
