    I saw there has been 75 (or something around there) different QBs to attempt a pass this year, and there will be at least one more added this week. That seems a little high, but it could just be because the Broncos, Cowboys and Washington are 12 of those by themselves.
    They're playing us, and we might rest all our starters, since the Steelers announced that like 6 key starters aren't playing on Sunday.

    But then again, Josh Allen is 40 yards from a single season Bills record. And I'm sure Diggs wants to ensure he's the league leader in receptions/yards. He's like 50 yards from a 1500 yard season.

    He did but his leash is hilariously short. Now he's gonna have to play all 4 quarters instead of 3.

    Tua is the starter, Fitzpatrick is the closer.

    Bahktiari tore something in practice and is probably done. That’ll be a big “what could’ve been” thing if packers flounder.

    If he's their only OLineman out they should be able to get through fine. I know they drafted a rookie who looks like he could be a starter on the line for them already.




    Also, Kamara got COVID. Probably won't change anything this week, but if he misses their Wild Card game it could be bad for the Saints.

    The tricky thing is, if the Saints do not get the no.1 seed, and Kamara tests asymptomatic then he CAN return for the Sunday play game, but not if the game is on Saturday. Could be a huge swing.

    And seemingly Saints won't even get the luxury of playing NFC east winner, therefore I'd see them going down one&done unless they get Kamara back. Bugger for the team.

    They can’t get the top seed, they lost to the packers.

    NVM didn't realize seahawks were also 11-4.

    I'm not sure playing the NFCE winner is actually a luxury at this point. Washington's defense is good and they are Haskins being horrible away from winning their last 6 (or 7 if they beat the Eagles) games. If the Cowboys defense can manage to be competent for a game, their offense can put up enough points to win. The teams without winning records that have made the playoffs have won their 1st round game more often than not too.

    Combine that with the NFCE winner most likely playing the Bucs, who are 1-5 against teams that will finish with a winning record, and it can very easily happen again.

    They can but they need GB and Seattle to lose and themselves to win.


    Which looks super in doubt suddenly, apparently their ENTIRE RB ROOM got hit with contact tracing so they'll miss at least this week, pending any positive tests.

    Need Seattle to win actually. Same as last year, needed them to win and they blew it.

    Losing the RBs is awful, but not as bad as Denver had it just because of the nature of the positions. Maybe Taysom will get a lot of carries.

    At least you’ve got a coach notorious for trick plays and a player able to pull them off in hill. Unlike the browns who just smashed their head against a steel beam trying to break it.

    Weird way to hype the Eagles WFT game Sunday night.

    I disagree just because losing Kamara/Murray is more likely to change the result of the game than Denver not having their 3 turnover machines.

    I'm worried mostly about pass protection, but that is what I usually worry about with reserve rbs.

    Well happy Saturday, Ian is reporting that the Jets and Jaguars intend to fire their coaches after Sunday's game.

    Also that the Jags top targets are apparently Urban Meyer and Ryan Day. You know, two coaches from the school that just whooped Trevor Lawrence yesterday. From the school that the #2 ranked QB in this draft comes from.

    So an NFL job is the next one for Meyer to "retire for health reasons" from? Would be dumb to hire him, but maybe I am biased there.

    I would be surprised if Ryan Day took that job too. Leaving Ohio State for the Jags is a huge step down. He would need to really want to be an NFL coach regardless of the team to take that job.

    Yeah honestly I expect them to be all-in on Meyer and if he turns them down they just hire some other college coach instead.

    Though it'll also be huge fuel for the offseason of articles about "Could Justin Fields go #1?"

    Just for anyone who thinks this is hyperbole, Jags pay $3M/yr and THE Ohio State pays $4.5M/yr. That's a pretty big step down all things considered.
