I get wanting to protect the QB but that is bullshit that call on Terrell against Stafford. Absolutely nothing wrong with that hit.

The Jets are getting close to winning a quarter.

I wish the Lions and Falcons could play each other every week. It’s great to see two teams trying to match each other in not being able to get out of their own way.

The Ground game for the Bills is looking a major concern don't think it is entirely on the Backs Allen did generally quite well taking what Jets were giving him as teams are really focusing on him not going deep on them Also I thought the Jets did really well on red Zone defence also it is kind of impressive Bills didn't Punt once all game.

This is a horrendous performance from us. Last week could put it down to no practise not this time.

If it weren’t for the Jets being even worse I’d say join the Tank for Trevor sweepstakes.

Cam just looks completely bereft of confidence but credit has to go to Kyle Shanahan and the 49ers offense for making New England so one-dimensional, that running game was having its way.

Adam Gase also kept the Jets within one score of the Bills so that's deserving of a contract extension.

I think part of it is the Pats lack any serious weapons on Offense when there No1 receiver is a 34 year old Edelman It does seem the Pats need a substantial rebuild especially on Offense but the Defence also is getting old I think the Pats are potentially in for a High pick it will be interesting to see what direction they go with it.

Bills Vs Jets was just a really weird game We really had no problem moving the football just we kind of struggled in the Red Zone especially as we had several stupid Penalty's

I have to admit the D gave me greater cause for concern especially as there was no great secret to what the Niners were doing, basically they ran the same three plays time after time and why not as we had absolutely no speed outside to stop it.

Offensively it's the culmination of the fact that BB has one glaring weakness and its his complete inability to draft and develop offensive skill position players. Compare and contrast with how brilliant Kevin Colbert for the Steelers is at it and more often than not we're not even talking about the obvious first rounders either. We have a pretty phenomenal record when it comes to players in the secondary but the other side of the ball you'd have to go back to Gronk and Hernandez really. End of this season we will have one of the highest cap spaces in the league and for once will likely be high on the draft order and BB really needs to make it count.

And truth be told I would seriously give consideration to trading Gilmore before the deadline add some extra capital. JC Jackson has probably been our best corner anyway this season.

I’ve been looking at adding Antonio Brown in fantasy football, but hesitated because I’d hate rooting for him. Thankfully someone has already picked him up, ending my quandary.

I've had Michael Thomas injured on my bench since like the second minute of the season. Can't believe kieran_vale is possibly gonna have Antonio Brown scoring points for him before I get Thomas back.

Having said that it's Saints v Bucs next weekend on AB's first eligible game so they may both return at the same time. Which would still have been a very remote prospect at the beginning of the season when I drafted MT in the first feckin round. :ffs:

The longer this season goes on the more I believe the Dolphins are probably the best in our division. Very impressive scoreline from them.

Our D is getting it done against the Bills just a shame about the other side of the ball.

Our Run game is looking the best it has done for the while and I kind of expect Pats generally having a good defence far to well coached not to but the Offense I do feel for Cam literally has zero weapons.

Aye, will say though Jakobi Meyers is showing me something today and also last week to be fair. He runs very crisp routes. Not someone to go down the field to but can see he has a bit about him.

I'm stunned with what we've had to work with today that we now have a chance to win the game with this drive. Good effort regardless, turned into a decent game overall.

And now I'm stunned for a different reason. That is awful to have that happen in chip shot FG range.

Time to tank the rest of the season.

Great time to get a Takeaway I had no doubt Cam does not turn it over the Pats would of won but I just can't see the Pats Tanking not having the Jets twice and Texans but there could well be a top 10 pick

Would like to say I feel for Cam there but... I don't. Sorry. Just relieved to get the win which feels a crazy thing to say in a game Vs the Pats.

Strongly reckon it'll be Steelers Vs Chiefs in the AFC Championship game Aberstone and reckon if anyone can knock them off it's you hard-nosed bastards.

My first two picks, McCaffrey and Carlson are both out now. Hopefully McCaffrey is back next weekend.

I've done ok from CMC being out coz I picked up Mike Davis when it happened. But hope to see him back coz you want to see the best players playing don't you, fantasy football comes second to that.

I've had Kittle out for a few weeks too and also Bosa out making my SF defence not as good. Just got reminded of that seeing Kittle go off injured again. :ffs:

Taysom Hill catching a pass and running it in. Don't recall a player like him before, as far as being sometime QB sometime whatever else you want him to do goes.

We don't have the offense to go toe to toe with the Chiefs, it's very much short under routes that the Chiefs defense whenever I've been watching them recently have been all over. Ben's been overthrowing pretty much anything over 20 yards and he would need to get that timing spot on to have any shot of beating KC. Hopefully the injuries to Tyson Alualu and Cam Heyward aren't too bad, the former has been instrumental in run defense and with him out yesterday, the Ravens ran all over them.

Acquiring Avery Williamson from the Jets is a nice complimentary piece at ILB, Robert Spillane isn't an every down linebacker and Williamson should assist in the run defense.

Dallas in Jerryworld next week, under Mike Tomlin's leadership that has trap game written all over it.

I did pick up James Robinson with him being out, so thats the silver-lining. I’m looking forward to starting all 3, whether they’re all healthy at the same time...

I don't think anyone in the AFC beats the Chiefs by going toe to toe with their offense tbf. Possibly Seattle from the NFC if they meet this season and Russ and DK have themselves a day. I more meant that in a playoff game I imagine you grinding it out against them and having half a chance of pulling that off. But I might be wrong, I haven't watched your games as closely as you have been obvs. :thumbs:

Edit:. Maybe I mean that you grinding it out would be the best chance anyone has of beating them in a playoff game this season. I'm not even sure what I'm trying to say anymore.

I’m inclined to think just based on what have seen the Steelers are a more rounded team than KC. In fact even if the W-L record says otherwise the last two years have for me been Tomlins finest effort as a Head Coach.

Got one eye now on the trade deadline. A large part of me is just saying trade Gilmore, Thuney and anyone else with any value and do a full rebuild though suspect that BB will try and struggle on. The worst thingwe can do is end up with say a 7-9 or 8-8 record though.

Vince Young in the Sky studio at the moment. If only Carel was still knocking round this would have been his greatest day ever.

Loving this Buffalo first half so far but goddam that second half we played against the Rams is firmly lodged in me head.

Allen is certainly dealing today. Must be said this Seahawks D is pretty ordinary these days. The Legion Of Boom it ain’t. Done brilliantly to limit Russ though when he has the ball. If he does mount the comeback here then that pulls him even further ahead for MVP for my money.

Falcons now jumped out to a big lead. We all know how this ends don’t we?

The return of CMC isn’t hurting me in fantasy! Even with Carson out. Guaranteed to score 65 points next week now.
