NFL 2018: Week 8

Ugh. First Buck sings, then he does a Jim Mora impression.

This first half, man.

Best catch ever, negated by stupid refs.

Edit: OK, I'm less peeved about Nuk getting robbed after that bomb. Hahaha!

Edit2: What the hell was that? Bounce pass off a defenders helmet? This is the weirdest game I've ever seen.

Cameron Wake has one sack through eight games. Wtf?

4 Jaguars reportedly arrested in UK following nightclub incident, where they supposedly tried to skip out on a $64,000 bill and mixed it up with security when they were stopped.

No report yet on who the four are.

Yep, it's full-on meltdown time.

RIP Jags being good, 2017-2018.

Legionhausered!

Edit: Also, BOTTLESMANIA!

I am finding this game to be very, very stressful.

If another Jags DB gets hurt, they're gonna have to start sticking random people back there.

Every Jags offensive snap is a hair away from being a sack by whomever left tackle Josh Walker is blocking.

Is it draft day yet?

That continued to be a stressful game until the two minute warning.

Curious, Legion, the Adams fumble that was ruled as a tackle and not a turnover, what are your thoughts on that? My brother and I were convinced it was turned over so we were surprised it came out in Eagles favor.

And aside from that, I'd call Adams the MVP. A back-up runner that performed better than just about any of our regular runners.

He was down. His ass hit the ground an instant before the rip move started to jar the ball loose.

It was close in terms of timing, but it was an easy call to overturn. The sideline camera had an unimpeded view and you could see the moment that the rip started to move the ball. He was just barely down when it happened, but definitely down.

CHORTLESMANIA!

Oh God Fitzpatrick is back after Winston throws his 9th pick in this game.

Huh? Should've picked Carolina.

You mean "oh yes the rapist asshole got benched" right?

...you gotta be kidding me.

Well, sh*t

This feels forced. The NFL is desperate for the LA thing to work this time so we are all getting forced to watch this manufactured winner.

How so?

Watching the Vikings pass 3 straight times at the 2 made me appreciate how the Seahawks are actually committed to the run this year.

If you like defensive football with a smash run game, it's hard to find a better fit. In an age of pass wacky offense, the Hawks are a welcome reprieve.

Go Hawks.

I'd really like to thank Eli and the Giants for basically giving me another fall of free Sundays because there has been no point in watching that team since Week 4.

Watch Saquon be a beast and try to drag a whole offense with him?

Reminds me so much of Maurice Jones-Drew Jags.

I've "Done a Prederick" the last two seasons, at pretty much the same time. But it's a real waste of my GamePass subscription so I'm sticking with the Giants this season... painful though it is.

Legion - For me, last night's game against Washington summed up the Saquon Barkley problem. He's a very good modern back, with the potential to be great. But adding him this season has added nothing of real value to the Giants' roster. He's not the been difference maker between wins and losses. Whereas Adrian Peterson's performance was difference-making.

His first two years in the NFL are going to be wasted, because the Giants are unlikely to have a ready-to-start successor at QB until the 2020/21 season.

Vikings were a .500 caliber team before adding Peterson.

Average Vikings wins per season for the four seasons before drafting Peterson: 8
Average Vikings wins per season for the first four seasons of Peterson's career: 9

Both of those numbers exact too. 32 wins in 2003-2006, 36 wins in 2007-2010.

Sorry, Legion. I should have been more specific. I meant that signing AP has been difference-making for Washington.

If he keeps banging in 100 yard rushing games, then I can see them winning at least 4 more.

Whereas I can't see NY winning more than one extra game this season, irrespective of what Barkley does.

I've always felt like RB's even the elite ones can only really take good teams to great but not bad teams to good. At best they can make a bad team mediocre .

The upper echelon guys like Gurley and Bell are so good because they can catch just about as well as a WR can.
