Welp, wither the Peter Man, I guess.

Today I learned that Logan Thomas, QB drafted by the Cardinals a few years ago, is not only now a Bill, but he's a tight end. And they used him on a fake punt to throw a pass for a 1st down this game.

They're gonna do whatever it takes to not let Peterman throw a pass again.

Cleveland up 21-10 on the Falcons.

Hue Jackson: I couldn't be expected to win with these players!

Gregg Williams: bitch what

Jags choke away the game with a close call fumble while being well within game-tying field goal range.

I think Allen Robinson felt called out by garion.

Tyler Lockett the receiver of an awesome post from Russell Wilson for 6...and he hands the ball to Floyd Mayweather in the fancy LA table seating area.

Nothing more LA than that.

If you paid any attention to injury reports then you knew he fully practiced all week and was well rested after missing a bunch of weeks.

That and Detroit's D has begun to suck again.

He scored 28.3 points in Kolb for me today. I was on it. Now if Kittle can just nab me 10-15 tomorrow night.

Kittle gets 15 points during warmups.

This is something I would've saved for tomorrow, but it's too damn good to keep it till then:

Quentin Nelson is a beast.

So... Eagles...

I dunno who the fans are going to congregate and blame. For my family it seems to be Doug Pederson's hands-off approach and lack of micro-managing needs to get a bit more Master of Orion 3 and micro-manage more. The defense looked to be improving, but even I'm starting to see the difference between other teams and Philly Philly. Too often it seems like the Eagles are waiting until the guy not only catches the ball, but makes a move. Which I understand! You don't want to be called on Pass Interference and you don't want to miss a tackle.

But they're missing tackles anyway by diving for the legs in order to avoid helmet-on-helmet contact – not exclusive to Eagles, though. This is across all teams it seems. It's just exclusively Eagles' defensive strategy. I watched Darby stand there, waiting until a man caught a ball, turned around, and started running forward before he even tried to tackle. He dove and he whiffed. Meanwhile, this entire season is filled with footage of Aghalor getting steam-rolled the second the ball is in his hands. I thought it was because he became a target for so many of these teams, but no, I'm starting to think it's because the opposing defense has just been that competent.

My old man says Jim Schwartz is too cautious, and that may be the case. Every time the Cowboys had a 3rd and 15+ almost the entire defensive line was on the first-down line, clearly expecting a long-pass... only for the Cowboys to get a first-down with a very short pass that ran the full 15+ required, three guys diving for feet and missing.

I know there's a lot of injuries, and I know that the offense has had problems as well, but I'm really starting to feel like the Eagles Defense is not the same as it was last year (I recall being very proud of the Eagles regularly stopping opponent efforts at a rush game), and is just way, way, way too scared of getting penalized. Whereas other teams are fine starting a tackle before the receiver has caught the ball, Eagles defense seems to be content to wait and see where the receiver tries to go. And that's just... it's not cutting it. Something needs to change.

Both the Notre Dame offensive linemen have been legit.

PFF 2018 grades for top 10 drafted offensive linemen, 2012-2018:

Jake Matthews: 81.6
Mike McGlinchey: 79.4
Lane Johnson: 77.9
Ronnie Stanley: 77.8
Jack Conklin: 72.7
Quenton Nelson: 71.0
Brandon Scherff: 69.2
Eric Fisher: 61.1
Chance Warmack: 60.0
Greg Robinson: 59.8
Ereck Flowers: 56.4
Johnathan Cooper: No grade (no snaps. 2017 grade: 68.6)
Matt Kalil: No grade (IR)
Luke Joeckel: No grade (Free agent)

Nelson's the highest rated guard of the group, and his grade has been rising over the past few weeks, and probably will keep trending upward. McGlinchey behind only Matthews and ahead of a couple really good tackes in Johnson and Stanley.

You left out bong mask. Supposedly he's really good in pass protection but not run blocking. Or the other way around. Can't recall.

You wrote all this just to include Greg Robinson, didn't you?

Seahawks ran for 273yds yesterday (in a loss). So much fun to watch in these pass crazy days.

Sounds like they're in permanent prevent defense due to injuries in their secondary. I believe for most of last night's game they were missing their top three cornerbacks? And they were missing their top two all game. That's probably why you see big cushions and missed tackles.

Google's news feature thingy on my phone just put this article at the top of my list:

Stepfather of Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes' girlfriend dies

Uh, ok.

It was a little more than that, as he passed out and died at the game yesterday.

He was pick #13. Taylor Lewan missed the list for the same reason, pick #11.

For the record though, Tunsil is 73.5 and Lewan is 72.7 this year.

PFF says it's pass blocking. 83.8 grade there.

I mean, I don't pass up the opportunity. There was also some McGlinchey Is Awesome in there because he's one of the few good developments for the Niners this year.

But yes, it was definitely time for a fresh Greg Robinson Watch.

Todd Bowles isn't getting fired, which means he's the only person from that scene in Luke Cage Season 2 who's still employed in that job, including Luke Cage!

Yeah well mine has gone practically dead silent since the De-$wagification.

The Bills have cut Nathan Peterman. The poor guy.

Naturally the Air Force is the younger, hipper branch of the military.
