Hola SCtoC, esto soy yo Spiderfan y es hora de hablar sobre la Semana 11 de la temporada de la Liga Nacional de Fútbol. ¡empecemos!
Blowouts, blowouts everywhere
This week had a bunch of noncompetitive futbol. Ya had the Hall of Fame of Disasters level Disaster Jets defeat my preseason NFC East Champion Washington Redskins (No, really I thought the Redskins were going to win the NFC East) 34-17, which caused Redskins fans to chant "Sell the Team" something which Dan Snyder won't do. Ya had the New Orleans Saints (the same Saints who themselves were blown out by the Atlanta Falcons last week) defeat the Buccaneers 34-17, no thanks to Jameis Winston's 4 INTs, which in and of itself happened because Bruce Arians is in denial.
Speaking of the Atlanta Falcons they beat the Carolina Panthers 29-3, causing everyone not on the Kyle Allen bandwagon to exclaim "BRING BACK CAM!!!". As the self proclaimed leader of the Kyle Allen bandwagon, might I just say that while losing to the Falcons and throwing 4 INTs is not good, the Panthers are by no means out of the playoff hunt and I see the Panthers and Kyle Allen rebounding from the loss. Then ya had the Buffalo Bills and beat their former QB Ryan Fitzpatrick's Dolphins squad 37-20, further helping the Dolphins tank. The final blowout? The Ravens destroying the Texans 41-7, which showed that the MVP discussion between Lamar Jackson and Russell Wilson is going to be a tough one.
NBC Presents Terrible Football in America
I picked the Chicago Bears to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl. I thought the Rams would be in the discussion to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl. My biggest takeaway from Sunday Night? Neither team deserves to be anywhere near the postseason. Mitchell Trubisky played terrible. Matt Nagy called a terrible game. Jared Goff played terrible for most of the game. Sean McVay called a terrible game for the most part. These are supposed to be the 2 of the best young QB and HC combos in the league, on the best sports timeslot in the U.S of A and they produce a 17-7 game which when accounting for the Rams FG that would have been missed if it was a half yard shorter, and Jared Goff's deep shot would have been 7-7. Seriously, there were only 2 total drives in the game that actually looked like proper football. The others resulted in punts and turnovers.
I'd give credit to the defenses, but the game didn't have the feel of a defensive heavyweight bout (I've watched SEC football, I know what those are like). Instead, it felt like 2 terrible offenses that couldn't do anything properly, which again shouldn't be happening when you consider the coaches and QBs involved.
Monday Night Futbol
Hooray for yet another terrible primetime game! Now, to be fair there were at least some points scored in this one (the final score was 24-17), but both teams did not play good. Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs offense took a LONG time to get to a point where they could function and even then, they gave the Chargers all sorts of opportunities to win the game. The Chargers drove up and down the field with ease and early on it looked like the Chiefs might get blown out. However, Phil Rivers decided to have a terrible game (He had 4 INTs), which ended up giving the Chiefs all sorts of opportunities to win the game, which luckily for them they did.
A lot of people made the observation that when you account for the Chargers last 2 games (both of which were one score games), Rivers has 7 INTs, which made people say things like "Rivers is done". I'm not sure about that myself. Why? Because the last year the Chargers were in San Diego, Rivers had a whopping 21 INTs and that was 3 years ago. I thought he was done then. He wasn't.
As for the Chiefs, they need to get their act together because their next 2 games are against the Raiders and Patriots both of which would be tough games if the Chiefs were playing good, but they haven't been as of late, which makes me wonder if they'll even win those games. It'll be interesting to find out if the Chiefs are true Super Bowl contenders or pretenders.
-The Vikings pulled off a crazy comeback after being down 20-0 which is now leading to rumors that Vic Fangio will be a one and done coach, something which I pondered about weeks ago. Gotta give myself some credit this week.
-Matt Patricia is a bad HC and that is why the Cowboys beat the Lions on Sunday.
-The Cardinals are a competitive team and even though their record isn't great, I see a lot of promise in them.
-Nelson Agholor stinks like an rotten onion.
-Nick Foles is still better than Gardner Minshew.
-Everyone involved in the Steelers-Browns fight should be suspended. Myles Garrett 2 games for the late hit on Mason Rudolph. Mason Rudolph should be suspended for the rest of the season for escalating the brawl. And the various others should be suspended 1-3 games a piece.
ROAD TO 0-16
This is the segment I do, celebrating the very worst the NFL has to offer. After week 11 the 0-for team is:
Who should the Bengals draft with the number 1 pick: Ohio State DE Chase Young or LSU QB Joe Burrow? It is an interesting question.
Chase Young has led college football in sacks with 13.5 in half a dozen games. As previously stated he plays for Ohio State, which means that if the Bengals were to draft him there is some marketing to done there. If the Bengals were to draft Young, that would give them a young defensive piece to build around and instead of drafting a QB, they could trade or sign one in free agency. Cam Newton is the first name to come to mind.
The problem with Young is that he plays in the Big 10, which means even though his sack numbers are insane, he is playing against offensive lineman that might end up in the XFL at best. This means that Young is a man amongst boys, and when he is a man amongst men, the question becomes how well will he truly perform?
When it comes to Joe Burrow, as stated before I'm biased because I root for LSU and watch the Tigers on a regular basis. With that said, Burrow is totally legit. He's got mobility, he's got the arm, he doesn't get phased by pressure, he has won big games against the top talent in college football, he's gonna win the Heisman, and if it weren't for him I don't think LSU would be where they are right now, which is number 1 and the likely favorites to win the national championship. Oh, and he has ties to Ohio too.
The problem with drafting Burrow becomes whether or not the Bengals can successfully build around him not only roster wise, but coaching wise, which I would argue is more important. It would be dumb to draft Burrow if everyone in the Bengals organization wasn't on the same page about it, from Bengals owner/GM Mike Brown to HC Zac Taylor.
As for the Bengals current on field product? That is far less interesting then what the Bengals might do in the offseason, but I'm obligated to at least say a few words about what happened Sunday in this segment.
They put a good fight against the Raiders with the game being in doubt until late in the 4th quarter. Considering that is the first time in a while the Bengals have managed to do that, it makes me think that with a softer schedule coming up, the Bengals may very well not go 0-16. We will truly find out how bad they are in the coming weeks.
Eso es todo para la edición de esta semana de Web of Football. ¡Como siempre, espero que hayan disfrutado y espero verte de nuevo la próxima semana! Esto es Spiderfan fuera. Adios!
