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.

    • Which if he’d had any balls, he’d refused. 
    • By now most should realize the Colts prefer to retain their own as much as possible.  The defense is much improved with the signing in place but always room for improvement at key positions.  Below is my FA/resign list have already put together mid-season.   Colts FA ~58m: QB Jacoby Brissett 21.3 WR T.Y. Hilton 14.5 TE Jack Doyle 8.5 RDE Denico Autry 5.7 ILB Anthony Walker 2.2 S Tavon Wilson 750k DB Tremon Smith 750k (keeper?) WR Marcus Johnson 582k (practice squad) S Malik Hooker 4m WR Ashton Dulin 542k   Resign ~ 90m QB Philip Rivers 26.3m (probably will drop) DE Justin Houston 11m (3-4 good years left like Mathis and Freeny) DB Xavier Rhodes 8m RG Mark Glowinski 6.9 (improved game this year) RDT Grover Stewart 7.5m (most improved player on defense) DE Al-Quadin Muhammad 3m OL Le’Raven Clark 1.2m DB T.J. Carrie 1.2m (special teamer) TE Trey Burton 4.5m S George Odum 1.25 TE Mo Alie-Cox (RFA) – 6.25m DT Taylor Stallworth 1m (otc hit 4.8m in 1 game) LT Chaz Green 850k (special teams) WR Zach Pascal 7m RB Marlon Mack 4m (when healthy proved to be lead back) C Joey Hunt 300k RG Jake Eldrenkamp 200k (special teamer) Edge Cassius Marsh 250k (special teamer) TE Farrod Green 200k (practice squad) S Ibraheim Campbell 200k (special teamer)
    • Originally was thinking we would be closer to 100 mil in cap space but sounds more like 75 mil.  Kind of why for this example only budgeted ~40 mil for FAs after calculating ~95 mil to resign players while leaving a minimum of 20 mil to sign draftees.  This should still allow discretionary cap space for the Club to do as needed short-term.
    • I still have Patrick Jones II at the top of my early 2021 NFL Draft Board.  Would be happy to acquire either Weaver or Jones.  Other top names have seen but truthfully haven't been impressed with them as have been with these two players at RDE.
    • No one gets stoned anymore in civilized societies!   Wait, that didn't sound right...
