But yeah, something’s got a sick sense of humour. Everything was lining up so well for Dak. He was gonna get some big money no matter how things shook out. Now? Maybe a one year ‘prove it’ deal. That ain’t right, that ain’t right at all. I read a word fart about Dak being “the future” but the Cowboys’ actions speak volumes.
-Speaking of ‘goners’, look for A.J. Green to be traded or released. One catch for three yards and a pathetic attempt at 1) batting down a potential interception and 2) making a tackle on said intercept. Redshirt probably doesn’t want to hear this but Cincy was smart as hell going after Tee Higgins. Sometimes a plan comes together…
-I laughed out loud hearing that Dan Quinn was replaced by DC Raheem Norris, the guy who was at the center of, oh, 70-75% of the Falcons problems. He’ll bring all the wisdom gained during his 17-31 run with Tampa to bear on the team. I’m not ruling out a one or two game bump though.
-Chase Claypool-his hometown is Abbotsford, British Columbia, as CBC was so proud to point out this morning-had himself a day for the ages. Did I mention something about rook wr’s getting up to speed recently? I love being right because it makes up for the 90% of times when I’m wrong.
-Daniel Jones is looking like David Carr these days. Remember that guy who never had a chance to develop (despite having skills) because his O-line caused him to be beaten to a pulp?
TO THE GAME!
-Mikey Thomas was ruled out yesterday(?). The reason being that he got into a fracas (this word is not used enough) with safety C.J. who care about his last name?
-Justin Herbert is the new ‘fuck it, I’m going long’ guy. Last week he had two scores of 72 and 53 yards. He’s tied for 2nd in TD’s over 20 yards (that’s throws over 20 yards, not a dink pass for 5 that ended up as a long score) despite being 25th in pass attempts.
-Now starring in the Halloween special, “The RB That Just Won’t Go Away” is Kalen Ballage, who was just signed to the Chargers practice squad. Folks complain about shitty coaches being recycled all the time-what about K.B.? And yes, I have no idea why I’m following his career so closely.
-Hunter Henry might just do something tonight (my fantasy brain hopes). When the Saints lost to the Raiders they gave up 15 catches, 142 yards and a score to that spot.
Let’s do this!
