It’s going to be fun. KC still has some hard games left I think. But now the colts and Houston have the tie breaker over KC. Personally I think Houston is going to win the division. We will see. Bills will be interesting if they can still get that wildcard or they will crash. Defense is good but offense is not. That raiders lost was huge. It still ticks me off we gave a game away to the chargers. We might look back on that as it costing us the division.

Suddenly next weekend’s game against the Texans becomes extremely huge. 
 

it’s not going to be easy, Jake Briskett needs to turn it on, take off the training wheels and be a big factor in that game. So far he has been a good game manager and done enough for us to have potentially won each game, but this needs to be a big performance.

I like this thread because KC losing today could help us in the long run and we can get that #2. We have to beat Houston though and win the division for it too happen.

Wow the chiefs schedule does not look kind. They have a home game against the packers and a game against the Vikings. Both those teams can run the ball. They go to Denver next week which won’t be easy.

The Texans play the raiders at home after they play us. This is going to get interesting.

Houston looks good.  The Chiefs went out of their way to blow the game, bit the Texans look like a balanced team with a lot of weapons. 
 

If we can’t establish a running game against them it’s going to be a long day.

HUMONGOUS contest at the Oil Drum next week. I’m looking forward to this. You guys give us the most trouble out of anyone in this division for sure :default_20smile:

Yeah Houston has earned my respect over the last few years. Watson is dangerous, I didn't think you guys would beat KC today because they rarely lose 2 in row at home. That was a heck of a win like our's was last week.

Just think if we beat the Texans next week we could be in that number two seed. The ravens lost to KC. Depends if the raiders win and Kansas City loses again.

Houston still has NE and Baltimore I believe?

 

So much football left, but I notice Watson seems to be given much more time behind the line.

As I have aged I rarely let losses bother me as much or games give me stomach problems. I am already thinking about next weeks game though. That is a huge one!

We're going to have to upgrade our roster if we want the inside track, but we are in with a chance.

That or we need Cain to be Superman. We also need a DE with Turay out. The good news is we should have funchess back soon which will help some.

Jacoby has a 3-0 record against the Texans. The two wins with the colts were with Watson injured. He also had a win in NE. I think TY even had big games against them when Jacoby was the QB.

I think it’s interesting the way the nfl has turned out. It turns Out the second half of our season is going to be harder then the first half. Carolina is going to be tough. Saints will have Brees back and lots of division games. We thought we got through the tough part already. We have the next five but after that it gets really hard. Turns out teams we thought were good are bad and some mediocre teams like Carolina are turning out pretty good.

Tampa Bay is confusing. Are we getting Winston that hung 55 on the Rams or the one who throws a lot of picks

I watched most of that this morning. Seems if you get some pressure on him he will fall apart. He doesn’t know when to just get rid of that ball.

I always figured our last three games would be tough. Saints for obvious reasons, Panthers because I think really highly of CMC and their WR’s, and the Jags are never fun.

 

We were always gonna have to take advantage of the middle portion/home friendly portion of our schedule.

The good news is I don’t think the colts have played their best football yet. If we had turned a couple of those FG into TD at KC that  probably would of been the perfect game. We would of blown out the chiefs. I don’t think we have had a complete game yet where both sides of the ball were good. That chargers game might come back and bite us in the butt. We have to come through the next 5 games at least 4-1. It’s going to tell a lot. The run defense must get better. Carolina  although they run defense  they aren’t great at run defense. Neither are the jags.

If we don’t come out of this stretch 4-1 it’s bad news because we then have to go down to Houston at the end of it. The Steelers are beating  up the chargers. Wow chargers are bad.

This was a great game by TY and JB. This is the game TY acted like he got touched then went in for the score. Hopefully we see this between the two Sunday.

He needs to do to Houston what he did to Atlanta.

I would not read too much into the Colts and the Texans beating the Chiefs.  Against the Colts, the Chiefs were without their #1 and #2 receiver, 2 or 3 of their starting oline, and during the game lost their ILB, probowl DT and someone else.

 

Against the Texans the #1 WR was on a pitch count, still without their #2 WR, still missing 2 starting olineman, probowl DT, staring ILB.

 

I'm not saying the Colts or Texans did not earn their wins, both played good games but we all know if the Colts were that handicapped the Colts fans would be using that as a reason after a loss (don't believe me, look at the threads after the Oakland loss and how many people said, if the Colts had Funchess, Hilton and Leonard the game would have been different)

    • They judged from training camp throughout preseason.  I don't think it was a mistake because clearly he was making plays.  I'm not sure how much room they had to anticipate he wouldn't be ready during the live games.  His case happened a bit different from Fountain, but they both when all the smoke cleared needed to sit and learn on the PS a little bit. 
    • Fromm is basically an upgraded Jacoby Brissett, a high-end game manager that won't turn the ball over and makes enough plays to win you some games. I'd take Fromm over JB.    I'd say take a guy like Jordan Love or Jacob Eason with the Redskins pick and develop them for a year under JB. End of next year, stick with whichever guy you're more confident will take you where you wanna go. 
    • Once Funchess hits the field either this week or next and assuming he gives us solid production throughout could we not just rework the contract if we want to bring him back?  I don't see this as a total waste with the 1 year contract he received. 
    • If, both Funchess and Campbell were healthy, I don’t think The WR position would look like a major need going into 2020. Fortunately, 2020 is loaded at WR and I wouldn’t be against taking one in Round #1.    The only FA WR I’d consider is A. Cooper, which won’t happen.   DT, CB, TE and possibly QB should the main positions addressed early in 2020.    
    • Are there true "Kelly fans"? Or did you put that in semi-quotes because it's a euphemism for something else?   I disagree with some of your characterizations of Kelly and Hoyer, but what I really disagree with is your characterization of the situation and the calculus of the staff. And I guess part of that goes back to your evaluation of Kelly.   Just think about his situation. We know he has physical tools, he had some good performances in college, and he hasn't been in trouble recently. Yet, he was the last player picked in his draft class, the Broncos didn't keep him despite having a terrible QB situation, he sat on the market until May, played well in preseason, but still cleared waivers in mid-September despite several teams having bad QB situations (Steelers, Jaguars, Washington, Eagles, Panthers, just a sample of teams that had early season QB injuries), then signed back to our practice squad. And he sat on our practice squad for two months without being plucked away (and yes, we're paying him active roster money, but another team could match that and give him a three week automatic spot on the active roster).   Now, you and other "Kelly fans" might think highly of his prospects, but you at least have to admit that he's not highly coveted by the rest of the NFL. It's entirely possible that the only reason he's even on an NFL team is because of his connection with Frank Reich. Other teams might feel like he's a talented project who needs to develop, but they might not have been convinced that he would put in the work and stay out of trouble. Reich felt like he could check both of those boxes, but that doesn't mean Kelly isn't still a project. That's my read on the reason Kelly was signed, cleared waivers, and stuck on our practice squad. I could be wrong, but I'm just connecting the dots.    If that's close to accurate, it doesn't really matter whether he's more talented than Hoyer. (There's another free agent QB who is way more talented and proven than Hoyer, and his initials are also "CK," but there are other reasons he's not on an NFL roster. Whether it's right or wrong, roster decisions don't just come down to talent, especially with QBs.) This is not a simple black/white evaluation of whether he's stable enough to be on the roster, in which case he should play over Hoyer, or if not, he shouldn't be on the roster at all. That's a gross oversimplification.   To the bolded, I especially disagree with that. I assume that Kelly stays on the active roster the rest of the season, barring a significant series of events that makes his roster spot absolutely critical. I don't think JB will be 100% for the rest of the season, so I think they'll carry three QBs as long as they can. I could be wrong.   And as it relates to Hoyer, I think these recent evaluations of him are overly harsh. I'm not and never have been excited about him as a QB, but he's done what a typical backup QB does throughout his career. He's not going to carry your team to victory, but he can run the offense. He's had a bunch of turnovers the last two games, but that's not typical of him. Before the Miami game, he hadn't had a multiple INT game in his last 21 starts, going back to 2014. He's a 60% passer who had a .500 record prior to a bunch of starts for a dreadful Niners team in 2017.   I'm thinking the reason he looked so bad against Miami is that our receivers were hurt, the OL didn't play well, and he made a couple bad decisions. (I also think Frank Reich left two thirds of his playbook in Kansas City, but that's a topic for another thread.) I don't think he's useless, I think he's a reasonable backup that was thrown out there in a terrible situation, and I don't think he got the help he needed from the rest of the offense. You say Hoyer weakens the team relative to Kelly, but that's heavily based on your bullish projection of Kelly. It's certainly not based on anything Kelly has done in the NFL.   Perhaps Kelly would have played better, but make a realistic assessment of the situation, and think about whether it would have been ideal to put him out there under those circumstances for his first real NFL game.    Hoyer vs Kelly isn't really a compelling argument for me. Right now, I'd rather have Hoyer play, but I think Kelly has way more upside. Overall, I hope JB is ready to go for the rest of the season (and I hope he starts giving his receivers more chances to make plays down the field), because he's better than both of them right now. If that's the case, we're arguing about which backup QB dresses but doesn't play on Sundays. Again, not compelling, IMO.
