2012-2013 NFL season - Page 47

post #2301 of 3167
Thread Starter 

Thanks Clint to getting this up and sorry for throwing the curve ball of the 8 Days of NFL picks.  Hopefully you guys enjoy.

post #2302 of 3167

106 yds for Megatron to become the first 2000 yd receiver....do we think he can do it? 

post #2303 of 3167

Johnson's record is impressive, and he's great, so nothing against him or his ability, but I am far from blown away by it.  1900 yards against five touchdowns?  Seems like there's probably a lot of fat in there.

post #2304 of 3167

He doesn't call the plays or decide who to throw to in the red zone. Fat or no, if you obliterate a record held by Jerry Rice, it's impressive.

post #2305 of 3167

Yes, it is.  That's why I said it's impressive.  And I think he's the best receiver in football.  But I don't think the numbers mean as much as one might assume, given how easily he's breaking it.  What Peterson is doing is way more impressive to me, for example... even though, yardage-wise, Johnson's accomplishment is the record-breaking one.

post #2306 of 3167

Does it or not, the 225 tonight REALLY helped my fantasy Superbowl prospects!

I can understand that, I suppose. 

 

 

Still, looking at some #s, it's the "worst" amount of tds by a dominant WR since Torry Holt and Jimmy Smith had 6 tds ea in 99 and 00 on 1600+ yds receiving. 

 

I also know some people knock Wes Welker for his low td #s (2008 - 111 catches, 3 tds; 2009 - 123, 4; this year - 100, 4 so far), but he's still a machine, though he may be more of a "right guy in the right circumstance" player - Megatron is "the right guy in any circumstance" player. 

 

 

That would also mean you should highly value James Jones' 51-622-12 stat line, since he's catching a td roughly every 4 passes (yes, he's got Aaron Rodgers throwing him passes, but by the same token Stafford hardly sucks).

post #2308 of 3167

Also, Bill Groman in 1961 for Houston - GTFO with 50-1175-17.

Good call on the Seattle love - I've said a few times that over the past 2 yrs Seattle was a team that had everything EXCEPT a passing game (they still have shitty WRs, but I'll get to that in a sec)....Marshawn Lynch has been beastly since that outta-hand run in the '10 playoffs, their defense has been solid-to-good under Carroll, but they just can't pass. And in this league you can't win if you can't pass (the Vikings are doing it now, but that's because Adrian Peterson has apparently been anointed with the semen of Odin or something, because he's fucking ridiculous)...

 

 

....enter Russell Wilson.* He has EVERY quality you'd like in a QB except ideal height. Seattle still lacks quality WRs, but a good QB is what makes a passing game go. Great WRs can get theirs while still not helping the passing offense as a whole; good-to-great QBs can make mediocre WRs candidates for the Pro Bowl. 

 

 

Seattle is one of those perennially under-the-radar teams - they play up in an isolated corner of the country, they don't have a big national base, traditionally they've been just kinda "there" in the standings (never had any really great teams, very rarely had exceptionally bad teams). 

 

 

Of course, once a team starts playing Tecmo Bowl with other teams in the league, they will and should get a bit of pub. 

 

 

 

* - admission of bias - Wisconsin Badger fan, Wilson was GREAT for us last year.

Good call on the Vikings!

 

I for one hope this shitty display of offense once again for Pittsburgh makes them either re-consider Haley or try to find a RB they can ride throughout the season.  Making one play a game does not help your defense.  Congrats to the Bengals--as I said earlier in the thread, I'd rather them win the AFC North than Baltimore.

Oh, and if the Giants lose this game--they will have gone 1-3 vs. said AFC North.

And it's not looking good so far. Also, just a warning that I'm already a little wine drunk from stressing over the Cowbows/Redskins games, so if I pop in here later ranting over the Giants game, please ignore me.
Also, I loved your 12 days of Christmas style pics.

Well, the Giants just don't look like they even care, so I guess I'll stop caring as well.

Guys, with all this talk of football, I think we're forgetting the most important thing: TEBOW! Strong rumblings that the man is going to Jacksonville where I rightly thinks he belongs and may actually be able to do something. Thoughts?

They're a marriage made in NFL heaven. An inept team on both sides of the ball will be joined by an inept, overexposed, QB who, despite people thinking he can, CAN NOT play QB in the NFL. What's not to love.

post #2319 of 3167

Well, I don't know if the Bengals proved they are a team worthy of a seat at the grown up table, but they're getting that seat.  Unfortunately, the Giants/Ravens game ensures that the seat is still closer to the kids' table.  Hey, playoffs back to back (and back to back winning seasons, sadly) for the first time in over 20 years.  I'll take it.  Now, hopefully the Patriots aren't on the other side of the table.
 

post #2320 of 3167

Doc Happenin, Tim Tebow got a Raw Deal in NY, with the JETS.  But, I would take him in a second over the...HENNEpecked Former Hanging Chad of the Miami Dolphins!  If you give Henne more time he will give the ball to the other team without a moments thought.  The Jaguar owner seems to like him, and maybe will build the team around Tebow.  We will see if the next coach is hired based on whether he likes Tebow's potential as a QB or not.

post #2321 of 3167
Don't buy the Bengals yet. Though after today I give a lot of credit to the Vikings. If you're looking for a potential Surprise team it could be them. Amazing running game and very good defense can go a long way and as long as Ponder doesn't make mistakes they might be deadly. Especially& with how hot and cold the "elite" teams of Atlanta, Green Bay and San Francisco have looked. On the AFC side I don't see any upsets Indy and Cincinnati are too inconsistent to be trusted. Overall my pick for right now is Denver vs. Seattle. Though can see any of the NFC teams making it.

Oh yeah, I'm sure they'll be one and done again this year.  That's just the sad state of the NFL in Cincinnati, that we react to making the playoffs like it's the Superbowl.  If they actually do win a playoff game I'm afraid there will be rioting in the streets.

post #2323 of 3167

The Patriots were not expecting the no-huddle from the Jaguars today. Of course, as soon as the Patriots tied the game, the Jaguars went away from the no-huddle, promptly fell behind by 10, used the no-huddle to fight back and have two different shots at game-tying TDs, only to throw INTs in the end zone.

 

But hey, my sign made it on TV, so it was a great game.

post #2324 of 3167

Oh hey Jamal Charles, I could've used some of those 226 yds last week maybe. 

 

 

Srsly, how does a team run for 350 yds and LOSE? Wow. 

post #2325 of 3167
Looks like that 0-1-1 against St. Louis is unsurprisingly going to cost the Niners. No bye and having to potentially play Green Bay on the road instead of at home. Super Bowl chances looking much slimmer all of a sudden.

Jesus Christ, the Seahawks.

In a word, no. In two words.. HELL NO

post #2328 of 3167

It's worth noting that the Niners have been outscored by something like 50 points since going up 31-3 on the Patriots.  Just a brutal fucking stretch.

And more offensive players going down by the minute for the 49ers.  If the NFC playoffs have to go through Seattle--that's gonna be tough for whoever it is.

 

Good point by Collinsoworth--how dumb do the Steelers look (even more) in the fact that Bruce Arians helped right the ship in Indy while the Steelers offense has been anemic all season.

I'll be curious to see if ANYONE gives Arians a shot at a HC position this offseason - "Resume - took previously 2-14 team on a 9-3 run after they started 1-2 when head coach was out with cancer"

Seattle has 42 pts with 7 minutes left. 

 

 

I wish I could lay money on Carroll going for 2 if the Seahawks get another td.

The Vikes beating GB is within the realm of possibility. Arizona beat SF, not so much.

I've never heard of a current player under contract with a team being linked to being a part of another team during the next season.  If this was just Generic Player X and not Tebow, wouldn't this be considered tampering?

post #2336 of 3167

Except Chris Mortensen's source isn't someone within the Jacksonville Jaguars organization, as what was previously reported - it was someone within Jacksonville, i.e. Tebow's home town. No Jaguars person has commented on the story just because of that reason.

Goodell makes exceptions for prominent QBs (see also "Brett Favre retired from the Jets but was playing for the Vikings 8 mos later")

But ya gotta believe! (in AZ beating SF that is)

 

Oh, and not a bad week by the kid here again.  12-4 I believe if the Seahawks hold on to that 30+ point lead.

Right now Pete Carroll is wondering if he'd get any heat for telling his QB to throw it deep - "c'mon, we gotta get another fifty!"

Yeah but it sounds like the groundwork is being laid for his transition to the Jags, even though he is still a Jet.  It's just weird. 

 

And another thing, it is really mind boggling how people are bending over backwards to give this mediocre talent a chance a stardom.

Why would the Jags want to do that?  Want to suck even worse that they are now?

 

I guess if you aren't winning you do anything to bring in ticket buyers.

Anyone else think that Pete Carrol comes off as a complete  douchbag? The guy just has that thing about him.

post #2344 of 3167

Yesterday, at the...Tavern On 7 I had a...BUFFALO chicken wrap.  The owner stopped by, and asked how everything was, after the end of the game.  I told him the...Buffalo Wrap was great, as it was to see Miami...WRAP up Buffalo!  The Dolphins have so much trouble beating the Bills, I was glad to see the game also was...Iced on an INT.  Miami almost...Never picks off passes.  Their DB's have the...Worst hands in the league.

I find the constant attention to Tebow irritating, but no. The Jets signed him, had no idea what to do with him, and have been dicking him over all season. Ryan couldn't bear to hurt Sanchez's feelings, and Tony Sparano is a whole grain shit sandwich as offensive coordinator. Tebow's goody-goody "team first" mentality has grated on our nerves for ages...Now we tell him to fuck off when he puts his foot down?

 

Tebow can be a great weapon, as long as he's on a coaching staff with basic competency.

 

I was hoping Carroll would try and break 50 in the hopes that he and Harbaugh would re-enact this glorious moment  after the game.

post #2346 of 3167

For a long time Tebow's team-first has come off as smug and phony... and this change in tact just seems to confirm it.  You can say it's not his fault that the speculation is a distraction to whatever team he's on, but he doesn't deserve to be a starting QB in the NFL. If he'd wanted to be an effective weapon he would have swallowed his pride and changed positions.  Now he's going to go to another team, collect more giant paychecks while disrupting the locker room, and pretend he's a nice, humble guy.  So, yeah, fuck him.

It's solely about selling tickets, but the Jags need something, anything, to build enthusiasm. Granted, that enthusiasm will fade if the coaching staff expects Tebow to be a starting pro-style QB, but by then, all of the PSLs will have been sold.

It annoys, but after spending over a decade on Internet message boards, I've gotten really good at tuning out ideologues.

 

The guy wants to do what's best for his career. It's hard to say "fuck that guy" when that's the mindset of every professional athlete with a clue on the planet.

Mangy, I guess you didn't understand my post. Timmy-boy can do whatever the hell he wants for his career, good for him. I'm talking about his zealousness for his Christianity. Does he have to point out that he's a christian every 10 seconds? Does he really need to start his press conferences by, "Thanking Jesus!!" Of course not. There are a ton of guys in the NFL who are church going, pious folks. You don't hear them mentioning Jesus all the time, do you?
