    BTW betting this week sucks. I'll put a little on the Titans at +1 and a little on the Raiders at -1.5 but honestly I don't much care for any game this week.

    And it was.

    And good thing for the Titans too. Because if one other thing was apparent today it was this...Malik is not ready at all to be starting in this league.

    Notes:

    - Not a shock, but the Jets have a QB problem on their hands now. Good to see Elijah Moore came back and essentially did nothing lol. The Patriots and Dolphins took care of business.
    - The Ravens got a much-needed win on Thursday. They're dealing with some notable injury issues but if they can keep the run going, they should be decent.
    - The Steelers seem to be imploding a bit offensively. Pickett threw a grenade saying the the offense doesn't seem to be doing enough in terms of preparation. Also notable that Bill Cowher put the organization on notice about putting Pickett in a situation where his confidence could be shattered.
    - The Titans did what they needed to do. Not overly enthused with Willis' game but it didn't matter because Henry was Henry.
    - The Colts looked okay with Elhinger in there today, but two costly fumbles derailed them.
    - The Texans are an abhorrent disaster.
    - The Jaguars just need Lawrence to calm down. He does a nice job not taking sacks but he's trying to do too much when he's out of the pocket.
    - I think it's notable that the Broncos didn't quit on Hackett when things looked bleak early in the game. You saw glimpses of what everyone thought this team would be here. Let's see what comes of it.

    - The Cowboys definitely found their footing on offense today. Parsons needs to be in the MVP conversation. That said, their run defense seems to be their Achilles heel.
    - Seems like the Giants really took it on the chin with the special teams errors. That was a tough situation for them so while a loss stinks, they battled valiantly in this one. Still looking up coming out of the bye week.
    - Heinicke seems to be willing to put on the cape for the Commanders. They weren't the better team but they did enough at the end to secure the win.
    - The Eagles are a massive problem. They've got a soft schedule but they're doing what you should with a soft schedule.
    - The Vikings keep finding the formula for victory. They're staying balanced on offense, avoiding critical mistakes, and looking for the opposition to make those mistakes.
    - I think the Bears offense is trending up but it still has a lot of work to do.
    - The Lions are well on their way to a top-3 pick.
    - The NFC South is just a pigsty.
    - The Niners absolutely wrecked the Rams. CMC is really fitting in nicely for the Niners. The Seahawks are riding a solid wave. There's no rhyme, reason, or consistency to the Cardinals. I said it when it was announced that they were going to be super interesting as the in-season Hard Knocks team. It feels like there's chaos waiting to happen there.

    At least the Lions made sure I didn't have to care about watching them by the start of November. Now I just sit back and wait for the Michigan Panthers in the spring.

    This is massive for the Ravens. They needed a guy just like this. Now maybe they can hold lead.

    Hock + two 4th rounders to the Vikings for 2023 2nd and a 2024 3rd.

    No word yet on a potential Cam Akers trade. Hines from Indy is also rumored to be on the move.

    Wish the Titans would go get a wr but GM Jon Robinson doesn't like to trade for wrs. He likes to draft wrs, develop them, watch them become top 5 in the league and then trade them to the Eagles for a cheesesteak and a mullet.

    Pretty surprised Detroit traded Hock in division but I think he hit his ceiling in terms of productivity. Should work out well for Minnesota as long as he doesn't flame out due to injury. He's going to be a really nice fit as a versatile weapon (blocker and PA threat).

    I like Chicago giving it a try with Claypool. I don't think he's a one, like Mooney, but it's an attempt to see what he can do with Fields.

    Buffalo clearly was thirsty as hell for a receiving back. They wanted McKissic and he bailed. They drafted Cook but still wasn't getting a lot of usage. They were tied to any receiving back worth a damn in the trade market. Think Hines will be a nice fit.

    Good moves by Miami and Baltimore with their defensive acquisitions.

    Dan Synder reportedly hired Bank of America Securities to explore "potential transactions". Speculation that he's at least looking into selling the team?

    Would be the best thing for the organization. Everything else aside, he's shown no ability to get that team off the ground.

    I like Falcons at +3 at home tomorrow. Chargers can't stop the run. All the Falcons do is run.

    Kind of like the Packers even at -3.5 and the Pats at -4.5 but I don't love the numbers. Gonna wait and see if I can them at 3 and 4

    Malik Willis is the worst QB I have ever seen that has started a game. Oh my God, I was losing it watching that idiot run around like a chicken with its head cut off. Convert him to a WR or TE position or cut his ass loose.

    Henry is absurd. But he has a huge workload. The way the Titans compete they're not the team to write off against anybody. They took the Chiefs to overtime with that QB play. Last year they took the 1 seed without Henry for the back half of the season. Well coached, they know how to play to the strengths, and have that special playmaker that gives them a shot. They NEED to be able to pass the ball though. Henry can't do it by himself. There's always a tension on passing downs even with Tannehill, but losing Brown was a mistake. I know the structure is to pay the players that support the gameplan, but the gameplan doesn't work as well with the threat of play action dwindling. Woods hopefully grows into the season otherwise it'll be hard to threaten from a defecit.

    Reich gone. He's had some of the worst QB options since he took over. Rivers and Ryan were head scratchers in a more mobile league, despite historic productivity, and Wentz was cooked. Even still, only losing season was the one Luck retired on the eve of. Not sure if there's better options out there honestly, he's been let down by bad business at the business position. Jags are getting good too, and with the Texans surely drafting twice in the top 15, they're in trouble going forward.

    wouldn't be surprised to see reich end up as OC of the jags if he doesn't get any looks for a HC job. the eagles offense really struggled post super bowl once reich left the OC spot for the indy gig. grouping back up with pederson and a young qb could work to get the stink of the mess he had to endure in indy off him.

    The Irsay press conference...


    - Football isn't complicated
    - Jeff Saturday is the next Don Shula
    -- Analytics are bad
    - There were no other options for coach (except the next Don Shula)
    - Drugs are great

    If the Bucs keep that running game going they're going to vastly improve in the second half of the season.

    Notes:

    - Buffalo and Miami concern me in terms of their upside based on their defense. Allen is making critical errors at the end of drives, but I'm more concerned with their health in the secondary. The Miami offense is clinical, but their inability to be consistent on the other side of the ball may cost them.
    - Pittsburgh needs an OL in the worst way imaginable.
    - What a win by Indianapolis. It's messy as hell though because you have to imagine Reich was told to bench Ryan and Saturday gets him back in there today.
    - Jacksonville wasn't aggressive enough to stay in the hunt against Kansas City. I still think things are trending up for TLaw.
    - CEH is absolutely the bust of busts for KC. Yikes.
    - Las Vegas is in a world of trouble now.
    - It's trending like one-and-done for Hackett in Denver.

    - Dallas continues to be exposed a bit in the sense that if you've got a run game, you're going to stay in the game against them.
    - Golladay has to be fully washed in New York.
    - What a wild, wild game for Minnesota. Cousins feels like one of the biggest X-factors in a wide-open NFC right now.
    - Detroit gets back-to-back wins over Green Bay and Chicago. Sheesh.
    - Fields is finding his form in Chicago but their defense now (obviously) has fallen hard. I don't know how sustainable it will be to keep Fields rushing this much, but he's electric as he does it.
    - Big effort by Watson for Green Bay. He's either had catastrophic drops or tough injuries to start his rookie season, so the breakout was much-needed today.
    - That was potentially a season-saving win for Tampa. They found their run game and that really kept them on schedule.
    - Looks like it's back to Jameis time in New Orleans.
    - Tough loss for Seattle but I'm not too concerned about them right now. I think they'll be alright.
    - Arizona didn't look any worse for wear on offense with McCoy instead of Murray but that might speak more to the ineptitude of Los Angeles. It feels like both of those teams are drawing very dead.

    Me, as a Niners fan, watching Russ Wilson stink up the joint makes me so happy. But when I realize that the Seahawks are laughing their asses off with two Broncos picks in the top 40 this Spring, I get sad.

    Seattle to get their next franchise QB and another game changer without even touching their own draft picks. Fuck.

    If the playoffs started today, all four teams in the AFC East would get in and three of the four in the NFC East would get in.

    This game has been ridiculous. I was waiting for Jalen's arm to fall off on the last play. Or the football to magically turn into a pigeon and fly away mid-pass.

    I like the Titans tonight. Packers still have Rodgers but beating the cowboys was just a choke job, Titans have the better coach and the only thing the snow and wind is going to do is make it more our style of game and less of theirs.

    If the Titans can stay healthy going into the playoffs, they'll be in the conversation again. The offence isn't where it was 2-3 years ago with AJ Brown, Corey Davis and Jonnu Smith, but it's easy to forget we were winning shootouts and needed that explosive offence due to the defence not being great. This defence, if healthy, is absolutely formidable. There are limitations on offence, but when 23 points is good enough for a win in all but 1 game in the 10, they're not damaging limitations. The Bills, Chiefs, Ravens, Bengals and Dolphins will be favoured because of better quarterback play, but you can just as easily see Allen giving up 3 picks or Burrow getting put on the ground 10 times.

    Vikings vs. Cowboys probably the game of the weekend. Minnesota are fun to watch this year. Dallas need a big win after the choke job last weekend. Division is still in play for them, but Vikings and Giants back to back could have them on the edge of being caught for a wild card spot.

    Notes:

    - The Jets absolutely have a problem at QB now. To a smaller degree, the Patriots do as well, but they've got schematic issues too. The Bills stopped the bleeding a bit but I'm still concerned about their overall level of health.
    - The Titans feel like they're comfortably in the driver's seat for the division after the Colts wasted the game away today. The Colts really let the Eagles off the hook.
    - I can't imagine that Hackett is going to make it to next season as HC. Doesn't look like Vegas quit on their HC today, so that's somewhat promising.

    - The NFC East joins the AFC East by having all of their teams above .500. I think there's more questions than answers starting to come around for the Eagles. Commanders have to keep riding the hot hand. The Cowboys really will be kicking themselves for that letdown last week. They've got a chance to really make some noise with two wins in a short spurt here.
    - The Vikings are 8-2 and have a point differential of minus-two. Yikes. The Lions really bullied the Giants around today. First three-game winning streak since 2017. Feels like if he's already not set to miss time, we're counting down until Fields has to miss time. Too many hits being taken in this new expanded role for him.
    - The Buccaneers didn't get help during their bye week. I think the Saints are skating by but they are eventually going to have to fade Dalton and move on.
    - The Rams are atrocious.

    3 decent games for Thanksgiving. Bills vs. Lions will be a fun one. Plenty of offense I'd imagine. I wouldn't want to write the Lions off from playoff contention honestly - win this (big ask, but the Bills aren't in outstanding form and the Lions are on a 3-match win streak) and they're only 2 games behind the loser of the next game, with an on paper easier schedule. We'll see. But they look like a team that if they gain belief from this game, they'll go on a run. I do think the Bills will win but not in a blowout.

    Cowboys vs. Giants - big divisional game, big franchises, big stakes. Must win for both - I wouldn't write the Cowboys off from top seed looking at their schedule. Yet I think it's must-win for the Giants given theirs. The Commanders vs. Falcons winner will be nipping at the heels. For where they have come from, I think it's a huge game for them and if they win, they're absolutely contenders. I'm leaning the Cowboys, but this is going to be a physical game.

    Vikings vs. Patriots, Vikings still chasing the top seed, Patriots on the playoff bubble. Got to go with Bill on a short week with the momentum of the last 3 games and the Vikings coming off a blowout. I think Minnesota run it conservatively, get in a 2 score hole and end up throwing a costly INT when chasing.

    Lions could be trouble for Bills who play like shit in close games.

    Cowboys should stomp the Giants who have been totally figured out on offense.

    Vikings/Pats - I actually can't wait for this one. Vikings just got embarrassed. Epicly embarrassed. Painfully, humiliating embarrassed. So they should be fired up.

    Dan Campbell and the crew ruined that with clock management inside of the final two minutes. Detroit really is trending up, though.

    The Cowboys are a big, big problem as long as they avoid the self-inflicted wounds. Their run defense is a problem but it can be managed if they avoid the stupid penalties and crippling turnovers.

    Potential referendum may be in order for the Vikings. That said, the Patriots looked extremely un-Patriot like with the mental mistakes.

    Notes:

    - Rough week for injuries for the Dolphins. Hopefully that doesn't derail them too much.
    - Remains to be seen if White is the "answer" for the Jets but Wilson certainly isn't at this point. Good for Saleh and the front office to be on the same page here with the decision or at least giving enough rope to get to this week. Garrett Wilson and Moore look good when there's an actual QB back there. Go figure!
    - What a sloppy game for the Ravens. The idea that the fullback has to be a prominent weapon in the pass offense for them is so absurd. It felt like they were kind of sleepwalking through that game as a whole and they got burned for it.
    - Very gritty win for the Bengals. That style of play totally fit the Titans style and the Bengals just held their ground.
    - What a breakout win for TLaw and the Jaguars. The run game wasn't going to be there for them and Etienne went down early, but Lawrence just led them. Good assertiveness to go for the win at the end, too.
    - The Texans are gross.
    - The defense definitely bailed out the Chargers today. The OL issues are so, so rough for them. Herbert led them down for two leads in two weeks. It just luckily cashed out for them this week. Make or break stretch for them for three weeks now (at Raiders, host Dolphins and Titans).
    - Feels like the Raiders lucked into that win because they were way too conservative late in regulation.

    - This is looking like an awful weekend for the Giants. They may lose sight of the Wild Card picture very quickly.
    - The Bears are the walking wounded right now.
    - The NFC South is absolutely gross. The coaching let down the Buccaneers in the second half and it ultimately cost them a very winnable game. The Falcons need to be put out of their misery so they can see about Ridder. Baker Mayfield must truly, truly suck. The Saints really need to consider going back to Winston because their offense is really messy right now.
    - Niners are hitting a tough injury bug on offense right now. Shouldn't derail them but it's definitely worth monitoring.
    - The Rams showed good fight but they're totally outmanned right now.
    - Cardinals and Seahawks both skidding with two losses in a row. Seahawks should be okay, but I've got not faith in the Cardinals.

    White looked great against the Bears which they knew he would so now they can keep going with him instead of Wilson. Which is what they need to do if they want to have a shot at a playoff run.

    Bengals beat my Titans at their own game. Very impressive Bengals. If we meet again we are going to fucking break you.

    Who is the fucking conditioning coach for rhe 49ers? These guys are ALWAYS hurt. Always. They should be a super bowl favorite right now regardless of how much everyone wants to see Jimmy G fail. But how can you trust a team that beat up?
