If I had no option but to play Benjamin, I would though. He had scored 3 times, once vs the Broncos and twice vs the Bucs, I think, before the Vikings disaster happened. Their OC came out and said he has to do a better job of scheming him open. I think Benjamin bounces back.
Tell me this, would you start Derek Carr vs Ravens on the road or Joe Flacco at home vs the Raiders??? I have this dilemma in 2 leagues. I am leaning towards Flacco because of a) Raider's bad passing D and b) Flacco tends to play better at home than on the road but as far as passing volume, Carr normally wins, hence the dilemma.
No doubt it was a great half, I wish we would have stuck with running the ball more in the 2nd half than what we did actually. Hopefully its a sign of things to come. I just have to see it to believe it. Its not the first time we have ran the ball well in a half and quit for one reason or another come the 2nd half
Correct 3. Bad math. Our run game really hasn't improved much I don't think. We ran the ball an average of 3.6 ypc last year and now up to 3.9. which is obviously an improvement but a minimal one. Frank Gores ypc has only went up from 3.7 last year to 3.9
However just 3 games in and plenty of games to go
Hi, Nils here....
I know a lot of Europeans support the Patriots, but all I can say is no way man, no way!
I'm not entirely sure when I started to follow and cheer for the Colts, but I has no shame in admitting that it was when Manning begun to really shine. It was probably back in 1999 because I seem to remember that play-off game against the Titans.
I also remember the I loved how the Colts would play a beautiful offensive game whereas other teams were boring with their defensive strengths. Aaaahh, those were the days!
I was introduced to American Football during my American Politics/presidential election study in Washington D.C. in the fall of 1996 (Clinton vs Dole). Didn't really get attached to any team back then, so you can say that Redskins just left me totally uninspired.
It is a great and welcoming forum here - and that is just how I remembered America too.
