Things I truly did not expect


Recommended Posts

Bears leading the NFC North at 5-1

Vikings last at 1-5

 

Falcons last in the NFC South at 1-5

 

The NFC East to be a combined 5-17

 

The Bills at 4-1 & the Pats at 2-3 (giggles.....)

 

The Texans at 1-5

 

This week we get to see the 5-0 Steelers against the 5-0 Titans. WTH?

What is funny is I had us at 4-2 before season picks. So we are who I thought we were Minnesota Vikings Football GIF - which is actually probably a 10 win team.

I assumed they would be bad that division has consistently been a bad division for years. They have had multiple division winners at 8-8. If they were 17-5 that would be surprising. GIants and WFT have been bad for the last 3 years. and the Cowboys arent as good as everyone always likes to act

Jerry Jones is a better salesman that he is a NFL team owner.

Yeah anyone that gets rid of Jimmy Johnson after a Repeat has an ego problem. He keeps Jimmy, the Cowboys probably have a 5-Peat with that team lmao 

I agree. At least 1 or 2 more super bowls in that team that Johnson built.

IMO that is actually the greatest team ever that I have seen anyway. In 1992 they had the number 1 defense in the league and they weren't even known for that. They were known for having the best O.Line in the league and having the big 3 = Aikman, Irvin, and Emmitt. Jimmy was the leader. They would beat any of the Pats teams IMO.

Aikman would have been much more protected in todays game than he was then.

Foles is a better QB than we have given him credit for. He’s keen on shedding the image he’s a relief pitcher and not a starting pitcher. He’s getting better with time and reps.


Bills vs Patriots - those 2 games will show if they’re pretenders about division contention. Unfortunately their run D matches negatively vs Patriots strengths of running the ball. They’ve also come up short vs AFC heavyweights Titans and Chiefs so far.

 

Only the Steelers have the passing offense to compete vs Titans, Ravens do not. Their upcoming games will be very interesting.

The biggest surprise to me are the Browns sitting at 4-2.

 

The team that didn't surprise are the Pats with their losing record. Worst team evar. When are they going to fire their coach?

I'm a little bullish on the Browns.  I picked them to win the division.  Sunday's game proved they aren't there yet.

    • I don’t think I buy the QB whisperer thing either. At the very least...I need to see proof of concept on a draft pick or a really young QB before I would entertain it, instead of going back to the well (twice now). 
    • In all seriousness I kind of like this idea.  Colts trade away one of the NFL's current top centers with Kelly and replace him with another stud coming out of Alabama, a much younger version.  Obviously a risk here with Dickerson and his late season injury so why am doubling down on drafting another center for a short-term stop gap but also feel Pinter can step in right away as needed.  Other key factor is as others have pointed out going low cost draftee to fill our void at LT.  Now the Colts if they could pull this trade off might even be able to consider trading up again with say the Jets and take a QB.  Honestly still have reservations about Wentz and if he is the true long-term answer the Colts are searching for.  If not groom the young QB under Wentz for a year and cut Wentz free.   The Colts do have a lot of pending FAs to make decisions about.  With the trade scenario the Colts still have ~$9-10 million in cap space left over.  The only thing with that in mind is changing being honest and losing our 2nd draft pick and having an additional 5th round back and select a depth WR since wouldn't be getting a good WR early in Round 2.  Round 6 much rather with the extra projected cap savings on hand sign Texans LT Roderick Johnson.  At least he has experience in this Division then target LCB Tay Gowan (UCF) whom opted out this past season but is considered a sleeper this draft.   When your done being narrow-minded look the rest over and be honest see if this is doable and fills our major voids.  
    • I dont want Watt here. His health is too much of a concern. 
    • Agree probably an overreach Colts giving away our 5th Round pick.  Realistically would be more along the lines of trading Kelly and our Round 2 pick.
