    Not even watching the game, was up 45 and my opponent only has Cam Newton. Yep, about to lose. I fucking hate fantasy football.

    Maybe they sat him after you wrote this. Just crazy, Drake didn't do shit all night but break a 60+ yard TD that was the real culprit. Funchess' 2nd TD was the actual final nail, but Drake randomly breaking free for that TD was the crazy back-breaker.

    One more prime time game with the Dolphins this year. Against the Patriots. Should be a close game.

    Incredible! It’s almost like one of them was too small for the stage, when the games were super meaningful he crumbled and exited the playoffs in the first game. Some kind of great qb when the games really didn’t matter all that much, but then come nut cutting time, showed his true colors.

    Well it's funny to look at the teams that were the culprits for why they didn't meet. Like Baltimore beating the Pats early, Pittsburgh in one of their SB years did it to the Colts. Chargers did it twice to Manning.

    Theo Riddick and Lat Murray outscored Melvin Gordon, Doug Martin, and Jordan Howard.

    I lost by .3.

    God damn. Must have been one of those weeks. Another match up in our league was decided by 1. Guy was down ~18 with Cam and Carolina's Defense vs. guy who had MacCaffery. Eked out the 1 point comeback win. Another match up guy was down about 8.7 with Gano last night. Even XP's add up with the one 40 yard FG.

    I'm just pissed I left Cousins on my bench and played McCown, left Mixon on my bench for Bilal Powell (once I heard Forte was out), and played Kearse in my flex over Davante Adams or Crowell.

    Thank God, Tyrod is benched.

    Im sure on paper he looks great to alot of you. But by god, watching him play shows how worthless he is. 56 yards is all he could get on Sunday. Everything is a check down. He doesnt throw to WRs. His numbers are inflated from 3-4 touchdown games when they are getting blown out. He skips at least 4 screen passes off the turf a week, and gets another 4 batted down. He doesnt turn the ball over, because he just goes 3 and out . 6 points in 2 weeks. 4 games of under 10 this year.

    BEWARE when he hits the market this year.

    I will say that Saints defense is a lot better than people realize. If I had to pick right now, I'd say Saints/Pats SB. Tyrod seems to be loved by Advanced Stats people, but most normal stats/fans don't see a lot in him. I will say he's been pretty poor last couple weeks. He's obviously not staying there after this season.

    Would anyone think Mariota should be benched? Or that he doesn't throw to WRs?

    The Bills Leading WR has less than 300 yards. Last year it was 600. For the whole season.

    Rishard Mathews and Delanie walker both almost have as much this year as the leading WR for all of last season. And Both nearly had 1000 yards last year.

    Take out 2015 and those stats SKEW. All season tyrod has checked down and refused to throw downfield. People have figured him out.

    6 times in the last 2 years a defensive coach who shut him down described his game plan as "Make tyrod play QB"

    How many games of his have you watched dick?

    Im all about advanced stats, but this shit doesnt jive. Go deeper into his breakdowns and you'll see over 50 percent of his passign yards come in garbage time while losing. Hes a game manager at this point that cant complete passes.

    They are good.

    But any qb in the NFL should be able to throw for over 59 yards in garbage time. Hell peterman went in and went 7-10 for 79 yards in 2 drives. Tyrod cant even move the field in a prevent defense.

    This last week, 3rd and 15. Saints are sitting back deep. Tyrod throws a check down to Mike Tolbert behind the line of scrimmage.

    Taylor also leads t he league in sacks per drop back,. Guy cant get rid of the ball. The offense has scored less than 20 on garbage time points the last 3 weeks combined. and just 3 in each of the last two games.

    25th in Yards

    26th in Y/A

    31 in Yards per game.

    This is all because he cannot throw the ball.
