Griffin for sure. The media was wrong again. When will they learn that accurate pocket passers win superbowls not run 1st qb that has no accuracy.
Man's game son! When you stop on the field, you better be prepared to protect yourself at all times, otherwise, someone could break your jaw or vertebrae. Sucks he got hurt, but he was standing in a position to make a play on Antonio Brown during that return and Gavin tattooed him. Nothing wrong with the hit at all.
Am projected to lose by 7.5 points. We play QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, TE, FLEX, K, DEF. 1.0 PPR.
My current starting lineup:
DEF: Kansas City Chiefs
Bench: QB: Newton (Romo's matchup should be a shootout); RB: F Jackson, WR: Amendola, Crabtree; TE: Tamme (will be dropping him); DEF: Cleveland (originally intended to play them but looks like KC DEF back on track?) .
DEF: Carolina Panthers
Have I a good chance?
Where do you see a shoulder to chest hit? The player lowered his helmet right before contact. This is a natural reflex. Try this...go gear up and run full speed at a tree in the yard and don't tell me you wouldn't put your arms/shoulder out in front of you to absorb some of the impact. Watch video at regular speed and you will see he lowered his helmet right before contact
So Dez leaves early - SO WHAT- if a third string bench warmer left early no one would notice- I am on his side on this one that guy busts his butt for this team and was just caught up in the moment.
It is a violent game but the sole purpose of that "block" was to hurt someone. I played the game at a very high level for many years and the idea that Garvin did not know where Huber was, or who he was, is nonsense. You are always aware of the field around you and what you are expected to do. Garvin should be suspended without pay until Huber can return to work. It was a cheap shot and cheapens the proud Steeler tradition.
you're either a troll or a #$%$ Steelers fan = #$%$ I guess it's all settled. I wish commenters could get fined for flagrant ignorance, you'd owe some money
Just ban the Steelers from football. This is the second time they have done this to the Bengals. Next year it is pay back time.
I need a 3rd RB
LeVon Bell @ GB, Shane Vereen @ Baltimore, Andre Brown @ DET
My other starters are J. Charles & M. Forte
I need 3rd WR
Kendall Wright @ Jax or Brian Hartline @ BUF
my starters are B. Marshall & J. Nelson
The hit was just that. It wasn't a helmet hit, I am praying for Huber. Football is a BRUTAL sport, but America loves FOOTBALL. It doesn't have to be a Steeler, it can be any TEAM. That is what football is all about. It just happens.
This is the kind of hit that the targeting rule was initiated. It deserves a fine, it definetly deserved to be called a personal foul under the rules, unprotected player, helmet to head. However, the punter knows he's in a dangerous job and needs to be aware and prepared to protect himself. He has some responsibility here acting like he's at 42nd and Broadway sight seeing.
I agree PatrickA with the draft order. I was 9th pick in a 10 team league, with a bunch of autodrafts before me. I was at the bottom of points scored but made it to the 1st rd of the playoffs..could have gone further but started OAK vs Jets and that was the nail in my coffin..but draft order makes a difference...along with injuries and LUCK. lol
Thanks for reply.
Romo is playing against Washington. Cam is going up against New Orleans. Cam is unquestionably a better QB but surely Romo will get more points this week? Have this problem all year. Couldn't trade either of them and every week Newton is rated higher and most weeks Romo scores more. Even last weekend Romo scored more.
Vereen was poor last week but has been a monster in PPR mostly. They're playing Baltimore so that's a worry. Starting FJax would be safer but significantly less upside.
I feel Crabtree will go well this weekend. Who would you bench? Decker, Wright and Edelman have been awesome mostly for me in recent weeks.
