Week 10 Discussion

Postby Bootz2004 » Tue Nov 07, 2017 8:50 am

Andrew Luck is out for week.....Oh wait he's on I.R. He's done.

Josh Gordon admitted that he got drunk and high before and after every game.

AJ Green and Jalen Ramsey won't be suspended for their fight this past Sunday. They got ejected.

Ezekiel Elliott may or may not play for the next 6 weeks.

Who is the biggest (good) surprise so far through the first 9 weeks of the regular season?

Eagles at 8-1
Rams at 6-2
Saints at 6-2
Jaguars at 5-3
Bills at 5-3
Titans at 5-3
Other


My vote goes to the Rams. Granted they've played some very weak teams so far (Colts, 49ers, Giants), at 6-2 they have almost as many wins through half a season since the last days of the Greatest Show on Turf. Goff is playing much better than I ever thought he would, Gurley seems to have shaken his sophomore slump for the most part, and all this while their defense has not been as good as it has been in years past. If they get it together on the defensive side of the ball, which they definitely have the pieces in place to do so, they may come away with a playoff win come January.

I am hoping they will not falter down the stretch though, as their schedule gets more difficult (Vikings, Saints, Eagles, Seahawks, and Titans are 5 of their last 8 games).

That Gordon story is some crazy ass ****...

And you can't tell me others (players, coaches, team personnel) didn't know about it..

And people think our culture is perpetually bad..

Way to Cleveland, Cleveland...

How about the Jets? About to be 5-5 when they should be fighting for the first overall pick. That's a surprise. Rams, wow. Say what you will but imo Fisher's decision to sit Goff and not throw him in so early was the right call paying off big. I was one of the few that warned about the Saints being the legit threat of the division. Jags are finally getting to where everyone has been expecting them to be for a few years now (you see that guys? It takes time)

Not surprised by the LA Rams. That team always had talent. I just did not believe in their previous head coach.

Rams, for sure. They won 4 games last year. You expect a new HC to have some growing pains, some transition stuff that most teams go through, but to have six wins halfway through is a big surprise to me.

Buccaneers and Giants were mentioned this week as the most disappointing teams in the NFL... no surprise that Manning and Winston were also mentioned as the most disappointing players. Winston won due to having all the weapons vs Eli having a bunch of receivers injured.

I think that is accurate. Buccaneers are certainly the most disappointing and Winston bears much of that blame.

Tough questions with multiple worthy answers. I'd say the Rams at 6-2 are my biggest surprise. But they get the Vikings, Saints, Eagles and @Seattle here in the 2nd half to prove they are a legit threat in the NFC come January. They certainly look good through 8 games.

Jags defense has been fun to watch fulfill their potential with all the talent they've accumulated on that side of the ball. If Dareus can help improve that run defense they will very difficult to score against down the stretch b/c that unit is clearly tops in the NFL at rushing the QB and locking down receivers.

This is most accurate. The Rams needed someone who could help them put it all together. McVay has been just that. Same with Jacksonville. Those 2 teams have been accumulating talent for years.

Biggest positive surprise for me is Buffalo. They did All they could to tank this season. Let Gilmore walk. Traded Darby and Watkins for peanuts. And here they sit 5-3 with some impressive wins under their belt. Definitely the biggest surprise for me.

It's like Buffalo is doing everything they can to get a franchise QB and Tyrod keeps winning like "Bro, right here"

Everything like what? They were sitting at 10 in the draft with Watson and Mahomes on the board and traded back. They took a QB round 5 but I wouldn't call that doing everything they can to get a franchise QB.

Talks ended with "He's a good football player, who hasn't played football in a while." So they signed Josh Johnson.

There are whispers from Colts sources that Andrew Luck's career might be over, and that the scouting department is evaluating the top quarterbacks in the draft like a team that might need one. What a shame that would be for football.

The exact phrase I read was, "His shoulder is not healing properly." And I've seen the word "Degenerative" used, although if that's medically accurate, I have no idea. But the feeling is he's no closer to playing in an NFL game now than he was ten months ago.

Again, hearsay, but a lot of it, with very little upside for anyone close to the franchise to spread.

Here's a pretty good link. Chris Ballard is selling the company line but there have been people reportedly inside the building who say the opposite of what he is.

Packers have cut TE Martellus Bennett for not disclosing an injury and will likely go after part of his signing bonus according NFLN. Should be interesting...

Sounds like lying runs in the family over at the Bennett household.

Irsay told Dungy the injury was all in Luck's head...allegedly. On ESPN they were saying that Doctors say he's fine, but he's not ready. Who knows what to believe.

and then Dungy came out the next day saying he was incorrectly quoted and that no such conversation between him and Irsay ever occurred
