That Darby injury is going to kill us this season.

And the Skins couldn't get any luckier on that play. Tipped straight to the defender for a pick 6.

We managed to chew 7 minutes off the clock to run out the game. Wentz had some money throws and Doug looks to be committing to the run after abandoning it after the first few weeks. 3-1 is great considering how banged up we are on D. Hopefully Cox is back next week and we get some of that safety depth and Darby back soon.

I guess that's what happens when you let Cam Newton throw the ball 52 times in a game. You lose.

Should just let McCaffrey run it or throw it to him every down. Future GOAT

Im not sure how much more he could do.

taking out Cam from the running game the rest of the team had 14 carries for 9 yards thats horrible. Macafrey the best  with 2 runs a carry.

I dont think i have ever seen a QB asked to do soo much that game.

50+ throws and then goes and runs it 71 yards off 11 caries, its not like it was one big play either.

Stewart for one was playing injured (ankle). Also, you'll never get anywhere if you don't commit to running the football. Ground and pound and the yardage will come - like in footy, first quarters are usually a lot tighter than last quarters and produce less scoring. Running games are the same - ypc would increase for each quarter the game goes on if you can commit to running it, rather than just running it a token few times.

50+ throws at 54% completions and 4.6 yards per attempt. With three picks. It's pathetic. Panthers should draft a QB in the first two rounds this draft to develop for a few years, before it's too late. Lucky this draft looks deep for QBs - Thorsen, Falk, Mayfield, Rudolph, and, who I think would fit well in Carolina, Jarrett Stidham, all should go second round and later.

They ran the ball 25 times to 27 though.

As you said Stewart was injured so there goes the running game.

The previous two weeks Cam went

48/62 which is 77% completion and 10.8 per attempt


you just have to back in Cam. Not the best in the league at passing by any means but great on the ground. As i said 11 carries for 71 yards and 1 TD thats great.

he now has rushed the ball per game  6.6 caries for 27 yards and 0.5 touchdowns.

he has thrown 21/33 for 246 yards with 1.5 TD to 1.33 Int

thats a 64.5% completion which is 13th in the league (he was 4th)

so you have a average guy in the air and a elite guy on the ground. why in the world would you draft a QB.

Why not work on your OL or pick up a Corner
Title: Re: NFL 2017/18 Season
Post by: Holz on October 13, 2017, 04:20:40 PM
Of the 3 interceptions.

1. He was hit as he was throwing the ball, so kinda his fault but wasn't protected very well (Needs a better O line)
2. The guy he threw it to dropped a easy catch fumbled it soo badly that the opposition caught it. 100% not his fault.
3. Yeah was going for too much as was behind, but it was a stupid throw.

ill blame him for 1.5 of those.

Actual backs ran the ball 21 times to 13.

Stewart was injured, but no the running game shouldn't go away. They just drafted a running back at eighth overall.

He's a below average passer for mine and an above average runner. Just too bad for a QB passing is about 10 times more valuable than running. Running QBs won't consistetly succeed unless you have a great defence (Wilson) or are a near-GOAT (Young).

Newton is 28 and not playing amazingly, and his body could start to break down soon. Always best to draft a QB a few years early and let them develop behind the incumbent starter - like the Packers did with Rodgers behind Favre, or the Patriots are in the process of doing with Garroppollo behind Brady, rather than go for a QB early the year you need them, thrust them into action and ruin their growth (like the browns do every year).
Title: Re: NFL 2017/18 Season
Post by: Holz on October 13, 2017, 05:01:47 PM
at worst Cam is a average QB.

The panthers will not have a very high pick so they will not be in a position to pick up a likely franchise quarterback. If they could pick up Sam Darnold, Josh Rosen or even Lamar Jackson then yep makes alot of sense.

even Josh Allen and Clayton Thorston will likely be gone.

When you're facing the 3rd place rushing defense that is hammering the back in the backfield you need to throw the ball. Our D-line was causing havoc. It took them until the end of the 3rd quarter to have a run of 4 yards by the RB.

D was fantastic, the line struggled early and no Lane hurt, especially with the blitzes the Panthers were throwing at Wentz. Lucky he is money on third down!

Also here is a fun stat for you

Pete Morelli’s crew in last FOUR Eagles games

Philly penalties - 40 for 396 yards

Opponent penalties - 8 for 72 yards

It was 10-126 compared to 1-1. The 1-1 was on an extra point which the crew just called it to be assessed on the kick off, Doug yelled at them because they didn't ask him and we went for 2 and scored. The officiating was a complete 1 sided joke.

Because they only gave McCaffrey one carry prior to that (and I think that was in the third quarter too). Stewart wasn't healthy. Didn't give him enough time/carries to gather momentum and get the ground game going. This guy really should be getting 10+ carries a game and 20+ touches a game (including special teams). He's that good he'll make things happen. One of the most dynamic offensive players I've seen.

No, it wasn't. They gave him multiple carries before that. Stewart was sitting at -9 yards at one point before the benched the bum (after he batted the ball to Robinson). The beyond average McCaffrey couldn't do anything either. There was one point in the game that the Panthers RB's averaged 2.76 INCHES per carry. They finished the game with 23 inches per carry!

Oh, and 'The Eagles have allowed 394 rushing yards, their fewest after six games ssince 1954 [342] and fewest by any team since 2010 Steelers [382].'

Lies

Second Quarter
1-10-CAR 9 (7:50) (Shotgun) 22-C.McCaffrey up the middle to CAR 7 for -2 yards (93-T.Jernigan). PHI-93-T.Jernigan was injured during the play.

Fourth Quarter
1-10-CAR 25 (14:55) (Shotgun) 22-C.McCaffrey left guard to CAR 29 for 4 yards (94-B.Allen).
1-10-PHI 12 (9:42) (Shotgun) 22-C.McCaffrey right tackle to PHI 9 for 3 yards (59-J.Walker).
2-3-CAR 30 (5:19) (Shotgun) 22-C.McCaffrey up the middle to CAR 33 for 3 yards (94-B.Allen; 75-V.Curry).



He's on track for 100 catches on the season though, what a gun. RB record is 89, overall record is 101. He just needs to be given the ball more on the ground (a lot more)

Both pretty reasonable trades. I can see why the Dolphins/Panthers are doing them - to dump relatively big-name players while they’re playing trash (2017) but still hold enough value/hype/upside/whatever to get something out of them, partly based on past performance, while the Eagles/Bills get somebody who can solidify their playoff runs (yes, I really said that about the bills) with enough years left in the tank to be worth the picks in a very decent draft next year.

Watson was up there as well. He had a high INT number but his TD numbers were insane, especially for a rookie. I'd probably go with a similar vote. Wentz, Smith and then Brady. It's a QB award so while someone like Donald is the anchor in the Rams D he won't necessarily win the MVP.

If Watt didn’t win it a few years back when Rodgers stole it, I can’t see a guy like Donald (or any defensive player) taking it. Goff would win it this year way before Donald would (not taking anything away from Goff tho, he’s a top 10 QB)

Jags vs Eagles SB!

There could legit be 3 teams that finish with 13 wins in the NFC.

I had all three finishing 13-3, just a shame the eagles obviously lost tiebreakers against the Vikings and Rams. The NFC playoff picture is very interesting, with both the 13-3 teams and I had three 11-5 teams in Seattle, Carolina, and the missing out Detroit. 12-4 saints just resting nicely in the middle :P but obviously I didn’t pick too many major upsets so I’m sure most of these teams will be a win or so below expected.

Don’t be mad pls, I know I have the pats as #3 and you (and the others) only support them for success but don’t take it personally ;)

I was generous to them too (gave them away wins against Oakland and Miami), the losses being @ Buffalo and Steelers. Also unlucky that the Steelers and Chiefs have pretty easy schedules on the way home.

I don't even know how the tiebreakers are going to work in that situation. We don't play either team so it goes to conference and similar games. I think we lose one of the west coast games, I'm not sure which one. We could be playing for home field vs Dallas in week 17 at the Linc. That game will be crazy if that's the case.

You do play the rams in about a month's time in LA, I'd have that down to a loss purely because of the long travel. I'm not 100% sure about how it had the tiebreakers work out to get vikings > rams > eagles but the site seemed legit so I'll trust it! I also have them losing in Seattle but I'd say every other game is a win (having said that it wouldn't surprise me if they drop one of the cowboys games)

Eagles-Panthers would be a great 3v6 match, elite offense and good defense vs good offense and elite defense

I think we're staying on the West Coast for that trip. I 100% agree that I think they drop one of those. I had them losing to the Hawks in Seattle but beating the Rams . I also had them winning the first Cowboys game but losing the 2nd assuming they would rest guys. If they lose the 1 seed on a tiebreaker I think they beat the Cowboys week 17. So basically the seeding for Philly will come down to those two west coast games.

So basically the seeding for Philly will come down to those two west coast games.

If anything I reckon they'd lose to the Rams but beat Seattle. Wilson isn't that great and they're missing their best player on defense. They've gotten lucky with the cowboys scheduling - play them away when Elliott is suspended (plus injuries to Lee and Smith) then at home when they will probably have them back. If Elliott, Smith and Lee are playing week 17 it could be a ripper game, their O and D are far far better with those three players (god knows they can't succeed with game manager Prescott at QB with no help).


Steelers playing pretty well today against a probable division champion, they're a great chance to win out and go 14-2 - Packers, @ Bengals, Ravens, Patriots, @ Texans, Browns. The two playoff-contending teams they'll play will be at home, and they're a very good team when playing at home. Then you'd think the Chiefs and Pats will be tight at 13-3/12-4, with the Chiefs holding the head-to-head advantage. Patriots have a four tough away games to come - Raiders, Steelers, Bills, and Dolphins, while the Chiefs have a pretty easy schedule. Could see three 13-3 teams here too foreseeably.

Hopefully Philly can get up

Wentz and co will grab at least 30+ points with our defensive outs
But Russ and our receivers are capable of going toe to toe, but Philly just need a tight defence on Baldwin and Graham and its GG

Well that's what everybody thought about Kaepernick and he lasted what 2 years of being good?

Could've used this a few years ago though, rather than right before a draft stacked with both elite (Rosen, Darnold, Allen, Mayfield) and good (Thorson, Falk, Lock, Rudolph, Stidham, Ferguson, Jackson) QB prospects.

The thing that bugs me about the incomplete pass call on Jesse James, was that if there was a guy marking him and had made contact as he first touched the ball, it would've been called a complete pass as soon as his first knee hit the ground.

But because there was no one else there, he's caught it, knee hits the ground, then elbow then the ball bobbles as his hands hit the ground.

It's just funny that the call went in favour of the Patriots so everyone is getting worked up over it :P
