  1. Schefter: Broncos hire Fangio

    Maybe Denver just didn't want Kubiak's son as QB coach, and Kubiak considered that a deal breaker? It's also possible that the Broncos simply couldn't agree on how involved Kubiak should be, so Kubiak decided to leave and let another team meet his terms. Either that, or Denver is just a $hitshow as you suggest. Or a little of both, lol.
  2. Nick Foles

    I disagree. The incoming crop of QBs from the college ranks is pretty crummy this year. Wentz would fetch a king's ransom if the Eagles decided to trade him. More than Foles for sure since he's so young and more talented. They could then draft their QB of the future in 2-3 years when someone like Trevor Lawrence is there. And Foles is good enough to win now as we've all seen. If Foles plays well at New Orleans, that's enough IMO.
  3. Nick Foles

    Nick Foles was apparently on the verge of quitting football before Matt Nagy talked him into coming to KC as Alex Smith's backup a couple of years ago. And then Foles landed with Philly shortly thereafter (a place, coaching staff, and system he was already familiar with since Doug Peterson was a Reid disciple). I get the feeling that Foles might be ok with being a well-paid backup QB on a team and system he knows well vs. leaving for another city/coach where he would be starting over, so to speak. Just a hunch, but his career arc makes me think he might prefer to stick with who/where he knows. Again, this assumes that he'd get a nice pay raise from Philly to stay (which is feasible since Wentz is still on his rookie deal). I also assume that the Eagles would never let him walk in free agency with his value as high as it is right now. If they chat with him after this season and find that Foles wants to test free agency, they'd rather franchise tag him as non-exclusive or transition with the intention of earning draft capital if another team signs Foles to an offer sheet. And that assumes they would want to let him go in the first place, which isn't a safe assumption at all. Having Foles there as a backup has proven to be extremely valuable and key to the Eagles' success these past couple of years. There is also the question of whether or not Wentz and Foles could co-exist there after this season (which might prove really dicey if Foles were to make another Super Bowl). And one last comment - you absolutely have to throw out Foles' numbers with the Rams. Just look at the numbers that Goff and Keenum have put up both with the Rams and elsewhere. There is tons of evidence to support that the Rams were poorly run and coached and that no QB could have been successful there.
  4. Packers' new head coach is Matt LaFleur

    I see the name LaFleur, and when I think of coach pep talks, I immediately think: B_1G9ZjVEAEhCRJ.jpg_large
  5. Wild Card Officiating

    Stuff like this is what makes the NFL looked rigged. Clearly it's bad for TV ratings if the Chargers go up three scores to start the 4th quarter. Fortunately, Anthony Lynn got the league memo and played prevent defense the entire 4th quarter to ensure the Ravens could climb back into the game (not easy to make it look legit when you're facing Lamar Jackson).
  6. Nick Foles

    The Eagles have first world problems.
  7. Wild Card Officiating

    I still don't understand how the officials didn't get the Derek Watt catch and roll right on review. He clearly broke the plane. It blows my mind how often a review doesn't work.
  8. I think a DST should get a point for turnovers on downs. I’ve never seen that rule enacted anywhere before in any of my leagues, but a turnover is a turnover and should reward the DST.
  9. OBJ is out.

    OBJ’s mystery injury is clearly his desire to not get hurt in a meaningless game. Something tells me he’d be able to play if the Giants were playoff relevant.
  10. Super Bowl teams, who do you have?

    1/2 Point PPR QB P. Rivers (but planning to start N. Foles this week on a hunch since Rivers gets the Ravens) RB D. Cook RB J. Williams WR D. Hopkins WR D. Adams WR T. Lockett Flex R. Anderson TE D. Njoku K M. Badgely DST TEN
  11. Considering Joseph should be coaching for his job at this point, that decision was perplexing to say the least. As a Broncos fan, I was pretty pissed they didn't go for it. I mean, even Jeff Fisher goes for it there.
  12. Would you bet Melvin Gordon plays or sits?

    He suits up but Jackson ends up with more work, frustrating everyone in FF with either player.
  13. Well, things didn't work out this week, but Ekeler suffered a stinger, and Gordon might still not be ready. Since the Chargers play the Chiefs on Thursday, both have less time than usual to be ready. If both sit out, then things truly will be lining up perfectly for Jackson. I suspect one of them will be active though with this game being a de facto AFC West Championship game.
  14. Jackson has more upside IMO. Blount has to share with Zenner and Riddick gets a lot of the 3rd down work. Jackson clearly outperformed Ekeler last week, so it wouldn't surprise me if it was closer to a 50/50 split in a game that the Chargers will likely be in running / clock-killing mode in the 4th. If the matchup was different, I might feel differently.
  15. https://chargerswire.usatoday.com/2018/12/05/anthony-lynn-on-austin-ekeler-hes-wearing-down-we-could-see-more-justin-jackson/ The Bengals come to LA. They are terrible. If Gordon is out, Jackson looks like he could be a legit RB2 or more this weekend. He looked great last week against Pittsburgh! I'm starting him over the likes of Kenyan Drake, Tyler Lockett and Corey Davis at Flex if Gordon sits (PPR). This game has garbage time written all over it.
