  2. And he badly misused them both. edit: I had more Jamaal Charles on my mind than McCoy but Reid has 20 years of suddenly and unjustifiably just failing to get the ball to his monsters. Yes, they all had dominant moments, but Reid never fed them the way they should have been. You're right, CEH isn't in the talent zip code with these guys but I wasn't really commenting on that, just my hatred of Reid's history of RB usage. edit2: I'm also saltier than an anchovy that I fell for CEH at 1.01 in a couple of leagues simply because of landing spot. I was all in on both Swift and Lamb talent wise but I had dreams of Kareem Hunt's 2017-18 dancing in my head.
  3. I fell asleep at the wheel and didn't realize this was a 1:00 game I could have recorded on local broadcast (we get a ton of Stealers games in Ohio) and was out golfing all day. I'm frantically recording all of the NFLN game replays but they aren't named yet so I have to hope this is one they replay. I may have to consider Game Pass which as a Raider fan is probably a good idea anyway.
  4. I think it goes without saying that the "droppable" comment implies choices. No one is going to say to drop him and leave the spot open. Him being droppable assumes a viable wire alternative - Hamler, Murray, someone else that's got upside. "droppable" doesn't mean auto-drop, it means one is "able" if appropriate.
  5. NASSIB MADE A PLAY! NASSIB MADE A PLAY! Not really much surprising here. Ok one thing - Andrews fell about 200 yards and 2 TD short of my projection. Defense was awful in spots. But those spots are much smaller and they are surrounded by ... g ... I can't say it. They were surrounded by some not awful spots. Ok some good spots. One or two great spots. I SAID IT - GREAT - DEAL WITH IT. Huge progress. Pass rush happened. Ngakue is real and he's freed Maxx as a result. Crobsy keeps growing as a player. I read something this offseason about his metrics and they were pretty elite athletically, we're seeing that manifest on the field. I thought he was kind of a nice effort guy that wasn't really elite but he's really breaking past being just a try-hard. Hope that continues. Hayward was a huge signing. He was all over the place plus he put a liability on the bench - that's a double win. Moehring was exactly what we wanted him to be - not overly involved because you don't want your last line of defense overly involved. BAL didn't get it downfield so he didn't have any chances to show what he's got but that's just fine by me for now. Arnette was a very good college player and I'm not convinced he's toast yet so I hope they find a role for him or get him progressing. The LB's are bad. Kwiatkowski can't even get on the field over Perryman ffs and Littleton cost us that touchdown being badly out of position on the TD run and whiffed a number of other plays. Wright had some nice plays but looked rusty at times too. I love how the D was run. It's a meritocracy and if you don't earn it you don't play and Gus don't give a crap about your draft status (Ferrel, Arnette, Muse), your contract (Kwiatkowski) or anything else other than your play on the field. We're not there talent wise yet and benching/cutting the early draft picks won't be sustainable but for now it's progress and I'll take it. Carr was Carr - took some terrible sacks and deathly afraid to throw to a WR but got away with it because of the massive animal Waller is. If Carr would just get some balls he's got the tools to be elite, we know this from 2014, and he's got some other guys that can be weapons. He's gotta get over whatever the block is. Those final drives were money once he had to but we were lucky to get the chances we got. Let's not be in that position next time? Coaching was bad and I'm pretty much souring on Gruden. Not having the PK ready to go on the field in OT? C'mon that's high school level preparation. At least they didn't try to rush the kick and botch it. Dumb #### Urban Meyer did that against Penn State in 2016 in ####ty weather and it got blocked and returned for a TD. As this was unwinding in front of me I was screaming at my dog to sprint out to Vegas and tackle the snapper. Why the #### is Carr doing a hard count on the 2 inch line? Nothing good for the O can happen there. The blame goes to Leatherwood but it never should have been in play at all. Speaking of the rook he had a good game overall - high profile penalty and sack given up made for exaggerated optics but he's a mauler and did well overall. Why the #### is Willie freaking Snead in the game in OT? First of all why is he even on the roster, but why in the name of doggo is he in there? And why must Carr throw a blazing fastball to him when he's 12 feet away? Everyone is to blame for that one. A fade to Edwards, a jump ball for Waller, if you're going to run the slant run it with a guy that belongs in the NFL. That's partially on Gruden too.
  6. Time to sign a nobody from a practice squad and give him 24 carries this week. Qadry Ollison is available.
  7. So it's a ploy to motivate Tatum Aiyuk!
  8. Not sure why it's so surprising, it's been a staple of a Tom Brady offense for, like, 16 years?
  9. He's really not. He had a ton of lapses - mistimed jumps, only getting one foot in bounds when there is obvious opportunity for two, lots of stuff you wouldn't expect from an elite WR. I used to think he just had amazingly poor hand/eye for such an "elite" NFL WR and that he was overrated (you can probably find some of my posts back when it was going down to that effect) but now I'm convinced he just punked out on being here and wasn't focused up at all times.
  10. 3 weeks is the minimum for 2021 - it used to be 8 (6 is PUP).
  11. As always it's all about your specific league. Only the shallowest of leagues would have anyone available that I would drop him for.
  12. Well he's not on waivers, he's a vested vet. He should get a solid paycheck though.
  13. Far too much fun in the thread title, must be vanilla-ized immediately.
  14. The only certainty with our defense is that Andrews will go ballistic. Like Kyle Pitts vs. high school defense ballistic. Start all TE against us.
  15. So who's the starting SS in Atlanta? Is Hawkins gonna be the guy? I have both but want to free up a roster spot
  16. Team A got: Etienne, Travis JAX RB Team B got: Sutton, Courtland DEN WR
