Due to Lamar being out and Bridgewater being on a bye, I had to play Boyle as literally the only starting QB available in the dynasty league. Currently, I would have scored better by playing either Lamar or Teddy.

At least you don't have Tannehill. Three picks. Yikes.

With 300+ yards and a TD. Boyle has 77 yards.

15/23 for 77 yards and two picks. Wow. Just . . . wow.

Pointing is taunting now?

lol Jimmy Johnson taking shots at Seattle: “Why rush your quarterback back if he’s just going to hand the ball off?”

It’s almost like he’s ignored Wilson’s entire career.

Takeaways from the Ravens in Chicago.

1) They have one of worst offensive lines in football.
2) Without Lamar Jackson, they are a bottom five rushing team.
3) The defense will give up an average of three huge plays per game.
4) Tyler Huntley is a capable backup.

Tannehill ended up with 13.22 points in our Dynasty league.

Boyle got 1.08.

Amazing!

"The rookie Asante Samuel" is a weird thing to hear.

You old, son

Lots of second generation DBs with unimaginative parents in this years draft. And, by lots I mean at least two in Samuel and Patrick Surtain. I'm pretty sure there was another one but I can't remember and I'm too lazy to look.

What's with the camo pattern for the sideline staff? I noticed Dallas and Pittsburgh have decided not to wear team colors and stay hidden or something. Maybe Army surplus becoming available now the troops are back from Afghanistan? DoD as major sponsors?

Whoa, was that just a gut punch by Heyward to Herbert?? That was weird that it seemed to be completely ignored by officiation and commentary.

Edit: That was posted fast.

Antoine Winfield.

Also, not a DB, but I'm gonna bring up Michael Pittman Jr because Michael Pittman Sr FRESNO STATE.

How dare you assume I don't remember Antoine Winfield Jr. Just for that, I'm posting these:

Also, he was drafted last year. I meant specifically this past draft. Jaycee Horn is who I was thinking of. Obviously, Mr. Cell Phone is more creative than the others.

Also, ignore the fact that a Power 5 program with seven national championships needed last-second end zone interceptions to beat Fresno State two years in a row.

Veteran's Day is in November (Armistice Day everywhere else) so the NFL turns it into Veteran's Month because the Dept of Defense pays them billions of our tax dollars for advertising.

I skimmed over the "this year's draft" part, and you had to go all nuclear on my ass.

I was left with no other option.

We addressed this in last week's discussion about how the Steelers never get flagged for this sort of obvious sh*t. I provided numbers. Folks told me I was crazy.

Jonathan Taylor might actually be in the running for MVP.

He's entered the chat now at 16:1 but you would assume a QB would solidify it down the stretch.

Or not. Brady is now the favorite again but everytime a team is supposed to win an obvious game they don't.

... A flag was thrown for unnecessary roughness. I expect he'll be fined this week.

Uh...

Glass half full: Absolutely nothing wrong with Cam or his arm. He played pretty well for a guy who knew only about two chapters of the Carolina playbook.

Glass half empty: It was nice to lose for regular reasons (the D got exposed, the OC is still figuring things out, the HC is a dope) rather than because your starting QB is HEYDARNOLD (who they made wear one of those desert camo jackets and stand on the sidelines; his expression was still the same, So what exactly am I supposed to be doing here?)

In all seriousness, Cam's TD throw to CMC was *chef's kiss* tremendous, and I'm not going to lie: I jumped off my sofa when Cam ran for that TD. Problem was, Cam was only the second-best former Panthers' QB playing Sunday. Sigh.

Lucky for y'all you'll be spared my 5,000 word essay on Cam in the Week 12 thread. I have a draft saved for when the Panthers win again.

* checks Vegas odds and sees that Carolina is a 1-point underdog against Miami next week *

* deletes draft

Wrong thread!

Throwing a clear punch is an automatic ejection. Rolling someone over to deliver it in their gut should be warrant a suspension.

Jaguars safety Rayshawn Jenkins was ejected from the Legion Bowl this week for exactly that.

But what if he just looked at the opposite sideline a little too long.

OK, this is legit funny:

For those who don't know the backstory:

K Joey Slye, like half of WFT's roster and coaching staff, was formerly employed by the Panthers. (They cut him in August.) Slye was perfect Sunday -- 3 for 3 on XPs and 2 for 2 on FGs, including the game-winner (and insurance).

Mike Davis was with Carolina last season and probably has all sorts of nasty things to say about the current Panthers coach.

Gawd, ain't that the truth?

Just popping in to see all the Taysom Hill contract hot takes.

Ok I'll come back later.

I really do appreciate the Saints being cap dysfunctional though. They would be so much scarier of a team if they understood that part of the football team building.
