Re: NFL Week 7

I remember him from Tecmo Bowl I wonder if he knew that he was 3.1 standard deviations better than an average punter in 1985. Probs It's remarkable to me how gross punting averages have increased in the past 30-35 years. I realize that no one cares about that and we tend to focus on how the passing...

Re: NFL Week 6

I think he's locking onto WRs again. I haven't watched much of the Ravens at all this year but it's probably similar for Jackson as well if I had to guess. Yes, and he missed a bunch of easy throws. I can remember three off the top of my head that stand out as brutally bad throws. While he didn't g...

Re: NFL Week 6

Mahomes has a TD pass in last 16 straight games. Last team to shut him out is Detroit, inexplicably enough. That game was one of the dumber games that ever happened. Just a completely weird experience IIRC Yes it was. The Chiefs won largely because of a ~100 yard fumble return by Breeland that happ...

Re: NFL Week 6

What the hell happened to the Bills offense? They can't run at all this year and now they suddenly can't pass either. If last week was a "bad" Josh Allen game, the Bills are fine because outside of a few throws I thought he was actually pretty good. I haven't seen much of this game though - the hel...

yes, and that's why you go for the two. because if turnovers are the only way you're stopping your opponent they aren't getting the 7 anyway if you do force the turnover

Exactly. Jesus Christ. The moment he realized his forward momentum could've hurt Mahomes he actually pushed his shoulder forward a bit and then Mahomes decided to flop.
