I just jinxed it, didn’t I? You can blame me after the game when you look at Hopkins’ 3 catches, 45 yards stat line. The game does look promising and there a number of quality tilts on offer this weekend. (unlike the first two “Point and Laugh” games featured on Thanksgiving)
-The Giants have an new offensive line coach! They’d been slowly improving and a New York-centric podcast had noted that Judge had been spending quite a bit of time with the unit. He’d also gone ahead and hired a consultant by name of Dave DeGlugielmo to help Marc Colombo along. I guess when the latter heard the news there was a ‘wordy kerfuffle’ and someone lost their job. I think it has been very well established that questioning Judge’s judgement is verboten these days so, so long.
–Bruce Arians, when questioned about our fave nutball wr said to the reporters gathered, “He’s a model citizen-everyone here has gotten angry at some time. If you haven’t, I invite you to cast the first bike.”
-The Raiders now have 11 players on their Covid list. Wasn’t The Grinder fined some shekels a while ago for not following protocols? Weird how these things happen.
TO THE GAME!
-Carson is out but Hyde be in. Perhaps some semblance of a running game might halt Seattle’s “lost 3 of the last 4” slide.
-The twice-baked failure pie that is the Seahawks D didn’t have a sack or even a hit on Murray the last time they interacted. They give up around 57.1 fantasy points each week to opposing wr’s, a number that is 11 points more than the next-worst team. So… “Play ‘Em All!”
-Much like some of the models Unsurprised likes to post, this NFC West division is very top-heavy. The Rams D and offensive line has really gelled the last few weeks and the Cards still have to play them twice. If Seattle wins this one they get a Fluffer’s Row of Philly, both NY teams and Team and they should be looking pretty.
-Are you kinda disappointed in Drake/Edmonds production? Well, Arizonny has 15 TD’s on the ground so far and the Kyler kid has 10 of them. Ball hogger. Can’t do that in baseball, buddy.
-Reminder, last time around Lockett went bananas-200 yds and 3 TD’s. DK was not OK because PP shadowed him and he ended up with 23 yards gained.
-Is Wilson forcing it too much? The most interceptions he’s had in a year was 11 and he’s at 10 already.
Type as though you’re staving off boredom.
