Crackers innit be fuming if I was a Texans fan. He’s top 5 WR in the league easily.
They should of easily had a 1st and probably a few others to go with it considering we had to give for Diggs A 1st, 4th (2021), 5th and 6th (and I think it was good value considering how much it would cost to trade up for either Ruggs, Jeudy or Lamb)

Yep, what Buffalo gave up was what I would consider an even trade for both parties.

With what Houston did there is literally no mitigation for it. Leaving aside the second rounder BOB's argument was about the contract being unaffordable but then instead in the trade they get a injury prone RB on a terrible contract. The other thing they clearly didn't consider is the reason the likes of Fuller in the past were able to get some numbers was precisely because D-Hop was drawing double and sometimes triple coverage. Interesting they couldn't get open at all on Thursday against a secondary that isn't KC's strongest area.

Don’t play to the competition this year Pittsburgh, that’s all I ask.

I know they're still trailing for now but this Steelers D is ferocious. Jones never stood a chance against Vince Williams on the blitz on the Giants last drive.

Name a worse offensive co-ordinator in the NFL than Randy Fichtner. James Conner doesn’t do the power running game, the offensive line is awful and definitely can’t pull on these run designs and yet it happens near enough every damn series.

That's brilliant from Washington, great fight to get the TD.

Hope you're watching that N'Keal Harry. Do you see how this works??

Big Ben with more rushing yards in the first half than Saquon Barkley. :lol:

Diontae Johnson has had a rough first half, whilst it’s early days he’s the receiver I thought would truly break out this season.

Just cannot do what Daniel Jones has done. The play was blown up so get rid or just take the sack and live to fight another day rather bung one up off the back foot.

Would also query why the Giants wouldn't put it in the hands of their blue chip RB.

Won’t be watching as got work early in the morning .

Would have watched it otherwise mainly out of fantasy interest. Still undecided if to give AJ Green a run out in this one tonight. Reckon if the Browns lose tonight then the pressure on Baker is going to be become very intense.

Yeah it seems that way with Baker but I do kind of feel for Baker there has been no consistency in coaching having a different HC/ OC each year but I think it will be an interesting match up especially getting a closer look at Burrow in the pros

Last day of annual leave tomorrow and AFC North implications mean I’ll be watching tonight. The media in the US are already heaping the pressure on Baker Mayfield with well known sports personalities saying it’s vital he performs well tonight.

I've just discovered nflpickem.co.uk coz it got mentioned on Inside the Huddle. Just a win/loss predictor for the games basically. Anyone already play? Or wanna begin and make a league between some of us?

Okay, Creg is in at least so I've made a league.

"Your unique League code for TFF League is: LXZEPYMJ"

I've set it to start from Week 3 though coz it's a bit late now and some people might miss this and not get to predict the heavyweight Paul Brown derby tonight. So you have a week to join actually. :thumbs:

Jeez, the Bengals offensive line is atrocious. That last play seems to sum up the lack of communication perfectly.

Baker clearly had a point to prove on that first drive, he was on the money with the play action passes but a lot of the credit has to go to some excellent play calling from Kevin Stefanski.

Bakers looking good today he made some good throws today as for Bengals it is definately a work in process think they should be looking at retooling the O-Line in 2021 but Burrow does look promising.

Whelp that'll teach me for my lack of faith in Joe Burrow (or more to the point, the Bengals offense). No pressure Sunday Kirk...

Bet Alan wishes he had more faith in Kareem Hunt now too.

Right now the Washington Football Team are the best in the NFCE. That is a damning indictment of the rest of that division. Falcons having their way with the Cowboys at the moment.
