NFL 2022: The Week 9 thread

The Titans, to me, are eternally a team that is good but not good. Does that make sense?

Jeff Fisher coached them so long his DNA is permanently imprinted on the franchise.

Edit: His career record as HC is
180–179–1 (.501)

In other words, a "winning NFL head coach"?

Kyler Murray with his lowest yardage total all season.

I wonder why the sudden decline these past two weeks...

In two games he has four targets and no catches. Last week against the Vikings, he was in for only seven plays.

Robbie got a catch this week!

Just one, on three targets.

For 4 yards.

Wait.

There's some kind of line next to the 4.

Like a dash or a hyphen.

Apparently it means "negative".

Robbie has one catch in 3 games as a Cardinal for negative-4 yards.

He's getting the second half decline started a little early this year.

He's still carrying the lingering stench of Carolina's former HC. It kills everything it comes in contact with.

Colts have fired Frank Reich.

I would make a smartass comment about it, but that's probably the next passing game coordinator of the Jacksonville Jaguars right there.

Marcus Brady is laughing somewhere.

Also, Reich is yet another example of how hard it is to go from "being close" to actually being a contender.

Man, I haven't seen a Reich collapse this utterly since *this joke redacted*.

@MilkmanDanimal has been suspended from Twitter.

Remember folks, the Colts' first choice for the job was Josh McDaniels, who has a worse record this season than Frank Reich.

The Detroit loss dropped the Packers from 17% to make the playoffs to 6% on the the five thirty eight projection.

Perfect.

Lose to the Cowboys at home. Sit Rodgers start Love. Get more losses. Get a top 10 pick.

Works for me.

(They will screw this up some how and play Rodgers)

Rashan Gary might have torn his ACL.

If that's the case season is beyond over.

Best way to package this is if Rodgers thumb injury is actually worse than has been let on. Convenient excuse to sit him.

Schedule: Cowboys, Titans bye Eagles. 0-3. Tankathon.

Could actually go 5-12 with what the remaining games are.

So, I guess the Packers are currently "winning" the Most Disappointing Bay team right now, but some depressing parallels at the moment. Great older QBs not having good years, bad offensive lines, questionable playcalling, best pass rusher with season-ending lower-body injuries, losing to terrible teams. The Bucs have a godawfully bad rushing game, Packers have an almost hilariously bad receiving corps. Does feel like there's some bizarro-world similarities here as you watch both teams implode.

Both of whom are northern California boys who got rich and became down-low alt-right darlings, but still wanted to come back to San Francisco and be 49ers.

What the actual f*ck and a half are they doing hiring Jeff Saturday? Is Irsay stoned again?

You know, this isn't all that crazy. Do the out of the box experimental hire in the middle of a lost season with zero expectations.

They're really stretching the word "consultant" there.

The team literally has two ex-head coaches on staff still. One of whom has a .520 career record over 256 games (John Fox). The other... well, coached the Jaguars (GUS BUS), so...

At this rate, I expect them to name Jack Easterby the new GM by the end of the year.

That's an "r" away from being the only cool thing in the state of Georgia.

Dacula makes me think of Duckula.

Fun fact; there is apparently nobody on the Colts staff who has ever called plays before in a game.

Someone needs a playcaller, you say?

Now the real question is which former player is Mark Davis going to install as interim head coach of the Raiders.

Hope you kept your receipt for that tombstone! Fresh off his Blutarsky on Sunday, PJ Walker will start Thursday night against Atlanta.

No word on whether the Panthers will replace their interim HC with Frank Garcia or Ryan Kalil.

Colts need to steady the ship….someone who is cool, calm and collected.

I kinda agree. Even with the two former head coaches it might be more fair for both of them to actually interview in the offseason vs get promoted and fired this season.

Also, what better way to tank? If they promoted someone and they did well that is counter productive.

Sounds like they're pretty certain, and the MRI will be to assess if there's further damage.

De'Vondre Campbell, who was injured himself a week ago on Buffalo's turf, went off about the turf fields the team has played on the past two weeks.
