Week 5 Discussion

Postby bjd5211 » Thu Oct 03, 2019 8:36 am

Week 5 kicking off tonight, what's everyone looking for this week?

Biggest thing I'm keeping an eye on is incredibly Saquon Barkley, looks like there's a small chance he plays. Most likely he doesn't, but he's clearly going to be back a lot sooner than the initial projections. The dude is a freak of nature, but obviously a little concerned they are rushing him back. We shall see.

I'm mostly curious to see if the Steelers continue to run a lot of wildcat, or even just continue to move Samuels around on the field. It was fun to see Conner and Samuels out there together.

I'm excited to see the MNF game between the Browns and the 49ers:

Browns - Offense looked much better last week, Higgins / Callaway returning to the lineup, I expect a big game for Baker / OBJ.

49ers - If Coleman returns, what happens to that backfield? How does the WR rotation shake out after the bye? Is that team actually as good as their record?

Fingers crossed we see a lot of penny (and he looks good) since he got some extra rest compared to Carson on a short turn around.

Yeah, I have my doubts in a tough divisional game, although he has done well vs the Rams. I thought last week was the week he could have made a push, but then he didn't play. Instead Carson got a full workload and produced against a bad Arizona D, held onto the ball and got back into Carroll's good books.

Look forward to seeing if any of my younger depth/bench role players do anything.

As for tonight excited to see Carson/Penny. Also excited for Sunday's 1pm slate - every single one of my opponent's starters this week plays at 1pm! That'll be something.

This is the least interested in the football season I have been in a long time.
I honestly don't know what it is, I used to be excited for the upcoming games and to watch things unfold - I'm just not at this point.
I've only even really watched any games on 2 of the Sundays so far.

There have been some great games (ie. Lions vs Chiefs last week) - but there just doesn't seem to be any exciting dynamics this year. It's more of the same, to me.
Do you want a logical debate?

I agree with you ... not sure why. I think it’s all the flags & the general crappy play by offenses.

The pass interference being challengable is the worst rule change ever. Dungey was right to say it was going to be a horror show at the the start of the year, especially because both offense and defense could challenge it, Hail Mary plays included. Which is insane!

It messes up the game pace and flow to the point it's often unwatchable - so many of these challenge flags shouldn't even be thrown, especially offensive ones. Not to mention, these tend to take a long time to review because of their often subjective nature. Like holding, you could probably call minor pass interference on almost every play.

Such a new and terrible part of the game - hopefully they trash it next year. One truly horrible playoffs call shouldn't force us to suffer through the other 99% of what use to be insignificant and always-somewhat subjective pass interference / no-calls.

I suspect the Niners will contain Chubb and be getting to Mayfield a fair bit. The Niners have been top 5 in yards per play and top ten in points per game and turnovers (even with a game less than most teams). I get that part of that is due to the underwhelming group of teams that they’ve played so far, but Cleveland’s pass blocking is questionable and they’re really only managed to get going against the Ravens, who are in the bottom half of the league in all those categories.

I agree it's a dumb rule and was a massive over reaction to the NFC Title game. It's never going to be challenged on a Hail Mary though, because those only happen at the end of the half, and coaches can't challenge in the last 2 minutes.

Agreed, but Carson doesn't have the game breaking play ability like penny. He fits the 1970s offensive playbook better, but Penny is always a big play threat, and the Hawks might need a few big plays tonight

As a hawks fan it seems pretty evident that seeing Penny take over a starting role is a pipe dream barring any sort of injury. Carson, while not great, personifies what the Seahawks style of gameplay is, Penny is very talented but he is wasted on this system.
