It’s been a tough week for future Hall of Fame quarterbacks (and Eli Manning).On Sunday, Ben Roethlisberger tried to play through a busted elbow against the Seahawks and got pulled at halftime. He’s done for the season.Later in the afternoon, Drew Brees’ thumb ricocheted off Aaron Donald’s helmet. He’s going to miss at least a month.On Tuesday, the Giants announced rookie quarterback Daniel Jones would be this week’s starter after Manning was ineffective in two straight losses to open the season. It’s clear the Roethlisberger and Brees injuries will force us to reevaluate our other Steelers and Saints, but don’t downgrade them too much without seeing the teams after a week of practice under their belt.Also, I wouldn’t concern myself with the Giants quarterback situation. Neither Jones or Manning will be relevant this season. Besides, Saquon Barkley and Evan Engram will produce with either under center.Follow me on Twitter … [Read more...] about Fantasy Football Week 3: Start and Sit
The new-look Jets? Blew a 16-0 lead at home and lost to the Bills. The Falcons, Steelers, and Giants looked listless and ill-prepared. The eight new head coaches combined to go 1-6-1, with the one win going to the Packers’ Matt LaFleur, whose exciting new offense scored a whopping 10 points against the Bears. Several games were simply noncompetitive, as three teams won by at least 30 points, the most in a Week 1 since 1997. And we haven’t even mentioned the Dolphins losing by seven touchdowns at home in Brian Flores’s debut. The opening slate of games turned out to be the Week of the Dud, which is where we begin our Week 1 Review: ■ Everyone knew the Dolphins would be bad, but the 59-10 loss to the Ravens was historically bad. The 49-point deficit is the fifth-largest in Week 1 history, and the biggest blowout since the Browns beat the Steelers, 51-0, in 1989. The Dolphins allowed eight touchdowns, allowed Lamar Jackson to compile a perfect … [Read more...] about For some NFL teams with big expectations, Week 1 was a dud
■ Falcons coach Dan Quinn. Owner Arthur Blank expected his Falcons to remain the class of the NFC after Quinn took them to the Super Bowl in the 2016 season. Instead, the Falcons took a step back in 2017, then missed the playoffs altogether in 2018, finishing 7-9. Quinn kept his job this offseason but took the unprecedented step of replacing all three of his coordinators. He now has Dirk Koetter at offensive coordinator, Ben Kotwica at special teams coordinator, and in a sign that Quinn is truly fighting for his job, he named himself defensive coordinator. If these massive changes don’t produce immediate results, Quinn’s fifth year in Atlanta may be his last. ■ Cardinals president Michael Bidwill. There’s no question that last year was a disaster for the Cardinals, who finished 3-13 and ranked last in the NFL in points and total offense. But it’s still rare for a team to dump its coach (Steve Wilks) and first-round quarterback (No. 10 … [Read more...] about Who is under the most pressure in the 2019 NFL season?
Go ahead and erase three Super Bowl wins and a fourth conference championship from Tom Brady’s resume. The two Super Bowl MVP awards against the Rams and Panthers. The seasons he led the league in touchdown passes in 2002 and 2007. The seasons he led the league in passing yards in 2005 and 2007. In fact, go ahead and scrub the first 197 touchdowns and 26,446 yards he accumulated in the regular season as an NFL quarterback. Go ahead and remove the undefeated regular season. The first four Pro Bowl nominations. The first-team All-Pro nod and MVP in 2007. Eighty-seven regular-season wins and 22 game-winning drives, plus a 14-3 postseason record. Six additional fourth-quarter, game-winning playoff drives, including a couple that instantly turned ties into titles. Without all of that, Tom Brady’s achievements from 2001 through eight football minutes of 2008, he is not the greatest quarterback of all time. Or is he? Next Sunday night in Atlanta, Brady will complete his 10th … [Read more...] about Post-injury Tom Brady alone might be the NFL’s best ever
