Yesterday was a hoot, wasn’t it? The Sunday Nighter was a keeper and it seems like there’s so much happening it’s hard to keep up. I’ll try.
-Players that have fallen include Dalton and N’Keal Harry (concussed), Dede Westbrook and OBJ (torn ACL’s) and Drake has a slight ligament tear in his ankle.
-Ben DiNucci looks like the starter next week on the road in Philly. It does a heart good to see the Cowboys struggling this hard but I’m rooting for this kid. As a 7th rounder he’s been put on blast long before he’s ready (one assumes) and I hope he surprises. I mean, with two successful throws he piled up more yards on O than Sam Darnold did in the second half yesterday.
-I read the stat-4 yards the entire second half, and had to check it myself. Jeebuz. I noted that I think Dimes isn’t going to progress in his current environment and I don’t think Sam has a chance either. Let’s just scoot ahead to next year-he’ll be under a new head coach, a new coordinator and starting from scratch again. His career is being set up to fail.
-Not so with lover of the long ball Justin Herbert-your very latest QB1 in fantasy. Tyrod, we hardly knew ya. Suffice to say, I think the Chargers coaching staff didn’t know what they had on their hands.
-Baker Mayfield did himself a huge favor by having a huge game and thereby fends off the local media, otherwise known as the Cleveland Wolves.
TO THE GAME!
I didn’t see the Bears going 5-1 but in my defense I wasn’t paying them any attention whatsoever. Are the squonkiest one loss team around? Surely they are. That D can’t carry sub-sub par quarterbacking all season long, can they? Seems like fans are walking on eggshells hoping he catches fire again at some point. I spoke up above about qb’s in bad environments and Goff is my best example of a fella that thrives when there’s a slight improvement in o-line play. Credit to McVay and Co. for not jumping the gun and dissembling the line or buying something shiny on the free agent market. They just TRUSTED THE PROCESS.
Have at it.
