Optimism is great and needed. I’ve had my football heart broken too many times over the years though with talent  flashed once and then lost to the abyss lol. 

I feel ya. I do think Williams is more RB2 (closer to Mack's style), while Wilkins is more complimentary (does different things, shiftier). I'd just be happy to have someone that can hit the hole hard between the tackles without dancing, and give Mack some rest in games. Too much reliance on him, and need to keep some tread on the tires.

Wow. Williams looked good today.  He explodes through the holes & creases quickly.  That's the kind of change of pace running we've been needing to compliment Mack's more probing style. 

 

I heard a rumor that CB wanted Jacobs from Alabama & when Gruden took him we traded out of the first.  He'd have represented what we saw out of Williams today. 

 

I hope Mack isn't hurt bad because I think our O Line & running game were about to take off with Mack & Williams both getting carries.

I wholeheartedly agree here. I’m the age of 2 back systems, you need to be similarly good with that second guy, even if they aren’t the same style. Sucks that Mack is out for this stretch now. Williams gets to audition for sure. Let’s hope TY is back for Houston game, we need someone to help that shifty and deep threat to remove some pressure from the run stop attempts.

That wouldn't surprise me.  I think that Williams catch was the biggest chunk play by a RB in the passing game all season. More of that please.

Houston's passing D is among the worst in the league, so I expect us to pass more than run, and scheme similar to the first game against them. 

 

TY got doubled/tripled a lot, and aside for a few catches (one was a TD), he was pretty limited and not very effective. JB was forcing it big time to him with all kinds of DBs around him. Not saying I don't want TY back, but JB will need to look elsewhere. Pascal had a very good game once Reich started calling first reads to him. Pascal was literally double wide open a lot of the game.

They intercept it in the end zone and do the safety dance.

When our OL plays like this, we have a puncher's chance against most teams in the league. As always, the AFC is top heavy with the Ravens and Patriots but beyond that, we should be 50-50 or better against any playoff team we face, IMO. It was really good to see the OL back.

Pats had an off game against Philly today.  If the birds had any assemblance of an offense they would have beaten them.  We have an offense better than the Eagles and our D is better than theirs as well.  This could be the year the Pats could be had at home.  Slight chance, but this could be the year.

I raise zosia mamet hbo girls GIF = when you post at times. We win 33-13 and JB still stinks lmao 

did I say he stunk today?

don't think I did. 

I did say he was sub 150, sub 65%, and had a 1:1 TD to INT ratio.

i did say mediocre, which is what it was. had some nice plays, but overall not a great game.

 

Those are just facts. Don't be afraid of facts. Facts are your friend.

Having trouble with your math. If we are 6-2, that means we don't "just always win" though, right... unless you have excuses for LAC and Raiders.

    • Ballard is a Polian clone and never going to spend the money on players we actually need.
    • Now this is a thread I will love to keep tabs on! I'm already opting out of the idea of taking a WR at 13 even if Lamb or Juedy is there. There looks like a TON of talent to be nabbed between our 34th pick until our 4th rounder. As of now I really like KJ Hill, Peoples-Jones, Pittman, and Gandy-Golden. All will probably be available by our 44th pick, some may last much longer.   And those are names were just my favorite. Aiyuk and Tyler Johnson look pretty good too. Lots of value this year at WR. 
    • I just clarify it's not just him, it's also where he's drafted. And as I said, what to do at pick 34 is a mystery to me so maybe someone like him is the right choice, afterall. I would concede that this early I don't have much to go off of. The bits I had seen of him I was concerned about some body catches and thought he didn't look explosive. His balance looked insane though iirc, definitely can slide out of a tackle. I also try to give players projected in the top 3 round a good look at some point especially if they are in a position of need, so I'm sure I'll watch some play by play stuff on him and may feel different. I think he's great, don't get me wrong, but I like someone like KJ Hill or Donovan Peoples-Jones just as much and they are going in the late second not late 1st/early second. Just my 2 cents.
    • Don't you think losing a pro bowl QB before the start of the season might be part of the problem?     
    • Haeg made $2,025,000. last season and earned every penny.  His new contract I imagine will exceed that. You grossly under value what he is worth to this team.  Your comment is void because he has already been paid over what you think he is worth.  Ballard is not in the habit of over paying players and Haeg has earned the money he is going to be paid.
