    TD!


    Just watched the reply online. Nice run by Henry. Great stiff-arm on Bouye.

    Either Henry is the reincarnation of Jim Brown or Jacksonville is the worst tackling football team ever.

    I was at dinner with my dad and my friend and his dad. Told my dad, he made that look ****ing easy. He just pushed them over like drywall.

    I'm confused, haven't there been over 100 yard carries this year, from end zone to end zone? Or is this a different TD?

    What happened to the Jags since last year? Ego. Look at Jalen Ramsey and A.J. Bouye last year, they were everywhere talking gobs of smack towards the end of last season. Compare that to Kareem Jackson who can do a lot of gun show stances after his plays on the field. But on First Things First on FS1 this morning they had Kareem. Guy is just like he's always been. Even keeled and level headed. This is how you act when you have a winning streak going and you're defense is playing damn good football. And keep in mind, Kareems first year was a train wreck. I remember the radio everyday was blowing up about how terrible Kareem is. And by his second year you could tell he was working towards fixing his flaws. It's good to root for a guy that seems humble.

    They count it from scrimmage. Both he and Tony appear to have run 105 yards or so since hand off was in middle of the end zone.

    Jags defense has the cleanest jerseys I've ever seen in the 4th quarter of a game. They are spotless white...those guys are not playing defense. Where are the grass stains. LOL

    Edit: I think kickoff returns they count the yards in the end zone like when Devin Hester was going off on those returns with the Bears.

    See that's what's confusing. There's so many different ways to score. They confuse us. lol

    And I agree, they are clean. And of course Ramsey just makes himself look even more foolish with his flop! ****ing joker. Your teams a joke and now you've just made yourself one too.

    I haven't seen this one before. Watson in a Moon jersey. That's legit! And the day he was drafted I text everyone and said he could be related to Moon. Their facial features are quite similar.

    I just remembered an interesting little story/odd coincidence I heard the other. Sean Pendergast's dad lives in CT I believe and obviously there are 3 Watts in the league now. Anyways, Sean's dad (Sean co-hosts the afternoon show) was at the airport in Pittsburgh and ends up on the same plane as JJ Watts parents. He spoked to them and said they were all very friendly and his dad add they were flying coach too. Just thought it's one of those strange things that happens that doesn't make any sense, but it all goes together. Kinda cool.

    Jags unimpressive. Last week, things going well, tackled great. Per their announcers. Last night, Titans smacked them in the nose. No response...T

    Has anyone run stats on Cousins this year at game 13 vs Keenum last season at game 13?

    You can FEEL it with their effort, let alone body language: the Jags have given up on the season,
    now they are in 'don't get hurt this year' mode, 'wait until next year'.
    ALL of the WR's put out almost NO effort at all, they didn't try, they didn't reach, they didn't run thru their patterns.
    You can't win in the NFL like that, not in a 'passing' league now.

    ^Agree. But, I think they're D is more of an issue. The WRs are mediocre and that was expected. The D has lost their swagger as things got tough this year. Derrick Henry smacked them in the mouth last night, and they had no response or gumption to fight back.

    Interesting Q.

    Most important stat is that Vikes (w/ Cousins) are 6-5-1 this year vs. Broncos (w/ Keenum) @ 6-6,
    and for good measure, so are the Redskins, Cousins' former team, who are rolling w/ their QB3.

    Vikes were rank 11th in total offense for the 2017 regular season. 1st in total D.
    They are 16th in total O, and 6th in total D, thus far in 2018.
    So, both O & D have blame to share.

    Keenum had a QBR of 98.3 for 2017; Cousins is 99.1 for this year, thus far.
    Keenum is 85.1 for this year.

    So, Keenum has not duplicated his numbers of last year, which I think partially motivated the Vikes to sign Cousins,
    but seems as if Cousins '18 ~ Keenum '17, if QBR is any indication.

    Now for the fun part, can Cousins beat good team?!?
    For 2018, Vikes have beat Niners (woeful, Sorry Mike!), Eagles (v. good team IMO, albeit scuffling @ the time), Lions (mediocre, sorry Lotaz!),
    Packers (mediocre, sorry Tamas!), Cardinals (woeful), Jets (mediocre to woeful).
    There's a tie with Packers.
    Losses to Bills (woeful. esp. early in season), Rams & Saints (both great teams IMO), Bears (v. good), Packers (mediocre),
    Pats (v. good). So, Ace is always saying & I think Whiskey is saying here that Cousins can't beat the good teams. By my
    quick scan, Vikes signature win of the year is the defending champ Iggs @ a time of the year they were not playing very well.

    T

    p.s. Keenum is $36M for 2 yrs w/ $25M guaranteed. Cousins is $84M for 3 yrs w/ (I think?!?) the whole thing guaranteed.

    A run (hand off from the QB) is different than a punt return or kick off return. The NFL classifies them in two different catefories.

    There have been several punt returns and kick off returns over 100 yards, while only 2 99 yard TD runs in history

    Keenum does not have the weapons this year that he did with Minn last year,
    and while the defense in DEN is ok, it is not the same as the MINN defense last year.
    That goes a long way with determining how long the offense is on the field.

    Either team could have gotten me for 4M total, guaranteed for 3 years....

    Mostly the latter...
    Something must have been lost in the coaching area....
    I bet you $20 Tom Coughlin was taking detailed notes on who 'gave up' last night,
    I saw the WR's give up on routes too many times to count.
    I bet you about 15 guys won't be back on the team next season.

    Bucs beat them in week 1. I'm not surprised.

    But I am biased as I'm a Bucs' fan. :)
