CFB week 14: Rivalry weekend provides entertainment

November 30th, 2019 | Written by Rob Staton

This was a bad look for Xavier McKinney

If you missed yesterday’s piece on Hunter Bryant check it out here.

The Iron Bowl is rarely dull and Alabama and Auburn played out a 48-45 classic today. It’s unfortunate the end came down to a missed kick and an illegal substitution to decide it. The game, which swung back and forth throughout, deserved a better finish. It’s strange that Alabama won’t be in the playoffs too. This feels like a three-horse race. LSU, Ohio State and Clemson are the challengers. One other team will be in the playoffs simply to make up the numbers.

Auburn did very little on defense. They struggled to contain Alabama’s talented receivers and Najee Harris had one of his best games. Yet Derrick Brown still looked like the best defender on the field. He consistently created pressure, provided none-stop effort to chase down ball carriers and looked like a clear top-10 talent.

His physicality is incredible. Very few defensive tackles are capable of dominating the POA and providing stoutness and toughness while also being that quick athlete able to penetrate and create pressure. Brown was a highly-touted recruit, he’s deadly serious and all-football. He could’ve declared a year ago and been a high pick. He returned this year, won the Iron Bowl and was the defensive player of the game.

Aside from him most of the other draft highlights came from Alabama’s offense.

Jaylen Waddle would’ve been the MVP had Alabama won through. He had four total touchdowns including a brilliant 98 yard kick return and a wonderfully high-pointed reception in the end zone. Waddle will almost certainly be a high pick in 2021 with his range, speed and ability to make plays in a variety of ways.

Henry Ruggs was healthy again and it showed with six catches for 99 yards and a touchdown. His speed and dynamism are clear. His ability to provide a deep threat opened up multiple back-shoulder opportunities for backup QB Mac Jones. He reportedly runs in the 4.2’s. With his catching technique, electric speed and production — it’s impossible to imagine him not being a high pick.

DeVonta Smith had another big game with five catches for 80 yards. He remains incredibly underrated. He had a big reception on a key third down in the third quarter — running a great crossing route to create easy separation.

Jerry Jeudy had another quiet game with five catches for 26 yards. Sometimes there’s just too many mouths to feed in this offense. Jeudy is very talented. Yet he’s had some rough games in 2019. In this one he had a bad drop in the third quarter. He’s had too many concentration drops this season and it’s something to consider.

Najee Harris was his usual hurdling self with 146 yards on 27 carries and a touchdown. He also had 26 yards on four catches. Harris is extremely talented. He has everything. You just want to see some consistency in terms of the physicality. Today was his best effort. He was smashing into defenders, stiff-arming one literally out of the game with a devastating forearm blow. When he plays like this he looks like a guy you can build around. There’s just something that gives you pause for thought with Harris. He’ll go relatively early in the draft (first three rounds) and he can be a lead-back. If he can find a level of consistency he could be really good. There are very few limitations.

I’m struggling to buy into the early round talk for Alabama’s Xavier McKinney. He got absolutely battered trying to defend a fourth quarter TD (see the image at the top of the piece). He struggles to contain against the run and he’s at his best simply blitzing into the backfield. He was fortunate to be credited with a forced fumble today on what was essentially a lucky play on a whiffed tackle.

— Not a lot went right for Michigan in another chastening defeat to rival Ohio State (56-27) yet Cesar Ruiz was a highlight. The more I’ve watched of him, the better he looks. He was controlling blocks all afternoon, showed great feet to pull to the right to help out against Chase Young and absolutely looks the part of a top pro-center. He opened up a huge lane for Hassan Haskins on a 33 yard run. I paired him with the Seahawks in my updated mock this week but I’m starting to wonder if they’d be lucky to have a shot at Ruiz. He’s the best center in this draft and looks like a first round talent. He did have one wayward snap which led to a fumble by the QB — but really Shea Patterson should’ve still handled it.

J.K. Dobbins had a huge day for Ohio State and equally deserves a lot more early-round talk than he’s getting. He’s highly explosive, fast, patient to allow runs to develop and he’s the type of runner the league favours these days.

His second touchdown was a great example of his athleticism and patience. He took the hand-off in the gun and assessed the blocking. No gaps were created up the middle so he bounced the play outside with fluidity and no wasted motion. As soon as the cut-back lane opened up he stuck his foot in the ground and exploded into the end zone.

On the first play of the third quarter he found the edge and sprinted away from numerous defenders for a huge gain. His fourth touchdown was very similar. If he gets to the edge in space he’s incredibly difficult to stop. On one huge play he was a little bit fortunate to fumble the ball, have it bounce right back into his hands and basically allow him to continue running in stride.

He finished with 211 yards on 31 carries and four touchdowns, plus 49 receiving yards on two catches. He’s not a physical, pounding runner who will get the tough yards and grind down an opponent. For a creative offense willing to scheme plays to put him in a position to get the ball in space — he can be a massive weapon as a receiver and runner.

Chase Young was kept relatively quiet with no sacks and only two QB hurries. I want to refer back to my post last week. Destroying Will Fries at Penn State is fair enough. He’s not going to be facing many players like Will Fries in the NFL though.

— D’Andre Swift was injured in a 52-7 win against Georgia Tech. He seemed concerned and emotional on the sideline, with team mates saying prayers with him. Yet after the game Kirby Smart said it was a mere shoulder contusion and that he should be fine. Hopefully that is the case. Swift had 73 yards on 10 carries in the game. He also fumbled twice. Georgia’s two book-end tackles are just incredible. Everyone talks up Andrew Thomas and rightly so. It’s time more people talked up Isaiah Wilson. For me he’s a top-15 talent. He does everything well and was terrific again in this game as both a pass and run blocker.

— Penn State are nowhere near TCU’s level when it comes to a bad passing game. Jalen Reagor has been dealing with a horrendous QB situation for weeks — hammering his potential to put up big yardage and really bolster his draft stock. K.J. Hamler still doesn’t get much help from Penn State. He was under-thrown on a potential big play in a mediocre 27-6 win over Rutgers. The other receivers on the team struggle to make plays. Hamler finished with only five catches for 22 yards and one run on an end-around for six yards today. He did have a 34 yard kick return and a 24 yard punt return. Yetur Gross-Matos didn’t play in the game and was stood on the sidelines with his arm in a sling.

— Wisconsin hammered Minnesota 38-17 to earn the opportunity to lose to Ohio State in the BIG-10 title game next week. Jonathan Taylor had 76 yards on 18 carries and two rushing touchdowns. Jake Ferguson had yet another quiet game with only one catch for 20 yards. For Minnesota, Reshad Bateman was again excellent with 147 receiving yards on six catches and a touchdown. He looks the part of a high pick in 2021. Tyler Johnson had eight catches for 89 yards and a score.

— It’s going to be really hard to project Justin Herbert to the next level. The Oregon offense doesn’t do him any favours. He’s a big-armed, improvising force who can make improbable throws and the modern NFL will love that. Yet Oregon plays everything so conservatively. The offense doesn’t suit him and isn’t allowing him to flourish. At the same time — an ultra-conservative offense should enable a QB to master things fairly comfortably. Has he ever reached a high level? Or at least the level you’d expect from a top-10 pick? Oregon were largely unimpressive in a 24-10 win against Oregon State that was close until the end. Herbert finished 18/30 for 174 yards and a touchdown. It’ll only take one team to buy into the size, arm and playmaking for him to go early. Yet his stock-range is really difficult to gauge.

— Clemson’s Isaiah Simmons had 10 tackles, a sack and two TFL’s in a 38-3 win against South Carolina. Tee Higgins had two touchdowns to go with three catches for 101 yards. Travis Etienne also had two touchdowns, 51 rushing yards on 15 carries and 37 yards on three receptions. He also had 50 yards on two kick returns.

— Another quarterback who will be difficult to project is Jordan Love. He similarly has the arm, the improv skills and the size. Going into today’s game against Nevada he’d thrown more picks than touchdowns though (14/15). In a 38-25 win he threw three touchdowns and one pick to get back into the black (172 passing yards). The best thing for his stock might be to grad-transfer to a team like Oklahoma. If that’s not an option and he turns pro, it’ll be interesting to see if teams buy into the upside after a poor final year in college (just as Buffalo and others did with Josh Allen at Wyoming).

— Joe Burrow continued his march to the Heisman and the #1 pick in the draft in a 50-7 win against Texas A&M. He finished 23/32 passing for 352 yards and three touchdowns. Burrow has been the real deal this season and kudos to him for taking a big step forward and elevating LSU. Clyde Edwards-Helaire had 87 yards on 18 carries and a touchdown while adding 49 receiving yards on four catches. Grant Delpit had a straight forward interception in the game.

— Utah clobbered Colorado 45-15 to stay in playoff contention. Laviska Shenault had 43 receiving yards on four catches plus an extra 25 yards as a runner. Keep an eye on Nate Landman the linebacker who had 10 tackles and a TFL in the game. He’s extremely talented and flying under the radar.

— Ceedee Lamb mysteriously took himself out of the Baylor game recently and it seems to have impacted his season. Against Oklahoma State he had only four catches for 36 yards and a further eight yards on two runs. He’s lost some momentum. Oklahoma won 34-16 and will meet Baylor again in the Big-12 Championship game.

— There are serious questions about the athletic potential of Jon Greenard at Florida and that will significantly impact his stock. He has produced at a high level this season though. Against Florida State he had three sacks in a 40-17 win.

— Arizona State has two very intriguing skill players. In a 24-14 win against Arizona, Eno Benjamin ran for 168 yards on 34 carries and scored twice. He also had three catches for 14 yards. Brandon Aiyuk had five receptions for 67 yards and ran once for eight yards. Both players are worth monitoring during the draft season.

    Nice write up for this exciting weekend to end college football’s regular season. With one caveat…

    “It’s unfortunate the end came down to a missed kick and an illegal substitution to decide it.”

    Maybe for you, but not for me. LOL Just to see the look on Nick Saban’s face when those two things happened made my Thanksgiving weekend. There is a God.

  2. 12thMan4Life says:

    What do you think of LSU LG Adrian Magee? He’s been dominating tonight’s game vs. Texas A&M. He’s a senior this year and his physical profile seems to fit Solari’s powerful guard mold – 6’3” 340lbs. Have you done any scouting of him in the LSU games you’ve watched?

  3. Kingdome1976 says:

    I actually think Tyler Johnson is a bit overrated in terms of being a huge factor at the next level. Also I think Najee Harris ever since I’ve been watching him will be one of the steals of the draft if he goes later than the mid-second round.

  4. Paul Cook says:

    If Tua had played that game, Alabama would have won in all probability. As Rob has oftentimes mentioned, they had an embarrassment of riches in targets to throw to.

  5. Paul Cook says:

    Hey Rob, are Chase Young and Derrick Brown the only sure fire elite DL prospects in the 2020 draft now? If not, who are the others? I know you may have answered this before, but asking again.

  6. charlietheunicorn says:

    If Ruiz is indeed the best interior OL prospect or at least top C prospect, he should go top 25 picks. He has many traits that the NFL would love to have as a foundation piece on the OL. I’m not sure he will make it past pick #32… and with several teams with multiple picks in the first round, he might get snapped up before Seattle can even make a selection.

    It would be a very “unsexy” pick, but would probably be one of the better 1st round picks they have had in a very long time. Plenty of upside and shoring up the interior of the OL long-term.

    I could easily see an OL of Haynes, Jones and Ruiz being a strength for Seattle in the next 3 years. Brown and a resigned Ifedi anchoring the LT/RT could lead to really great things. Somehow hold onto Pocic and Fant…. now you have nice depth and experience throughout the OL group.

  7. CaptainJack says:

    Looks like SEC title is LSU vs Georgia, Pac is Utah vs Oregon. If LSU beats Georgia handing them their second loss, and Utah beats oregon and only has one loss (to 8-4 USC), do you think Utah could sneak into the playoff? Or would a one less Oklahoma team get in instead?

  8. Paul Cook says:

    No doubt, LSU, Ohio State, and Clemson tower over everybody else. Alabama is perhaps right with them talent wise, but (boo-hoo) they came up short. It’s all about the 4th spot now.

  9. Paul Cook says:

    An 8 team playoff can’t come soon enough. College football is the only sport where if you win your conference you’re not automatically in the playoff. That’s effing ridiculous. The idea that men sitting in a room decide if you’re in the CFP playoff when you’ve won a power 5 conference? Insane. Totally insane.

    • Aaron says:

      I totally agree with an 8 team playoff. Have the winner of each of the power five conferences then the next best three from the power five or the rare instance that a non power five is so good. Simple as that. In the NFL if you win your division you’re in, why not the same in CFB?

      • Volume12 says:

        Because the talent gap in the NFL is razor thin. Not so in CFB.

        As fun as it would be to see a UCF in the CFB playoff, those 7 and 8 seeds aren’t gonna beat an ’08 USC team for example.

    • Awsi Dooger says:

      8 teams would be asinine in college football. How are you going to leave Alabama out? Is anyone seriously going to argue that Alabama isn’t one of the 8 best teams? Check any set of power ratings and see where they stand, even after the loss to Auburn.

      But they don’t deserve to be in, after losing their two showdown games. And there have been numerous other examples. Michigan would have been within 8 teams last season despite likewise failing in the meaningful contests.

      8 would not allow deserved teams in. It would create an unnecessary larger window that trivialized the regular season and provided mulligans to certain teams while setting up blowouts in other games. As Rob mentioned, minus Alabama the difficulty is identifying the fourth team. Anyone who has ever studied the power ratings in college football knows how unbalanced it gets after a handful of teams, completely unlike the bunched NFL.

      • Paul Cook says:

        You’re not paying attention. Alabama would still have a chance to make the playoff, as would any runner-up from a power 5 conference if they were selected by the committee as one of the 2-3 wild card teams. If any runner-up team doesn’t make it in, is not selected by the committee, well the boo-hoo. If they wanted to be assured of getting in, they had a chance to by winning their conference.

  10. Volume12 says:

    Lol. The 2021 TE class is gonna be such a loaded position group.

    Penn St TE Pat Frieirmuth and ND TE Cole Kmet returning to school.

  11. Volume12 says:

    Outside of the 1st two rounds, an UDFA and probably a random day 3 pick, Seattle’s draft class is gonna be primarily made up of ST’ers. Or their rookies should be filling/helping out that unit. That’s good coaching and development.

    So, who are some CFB prospects that can be slotted in on teams or who are some standout teams guys?

    • Eli says:

      Louisiana Tech CB Amik Robertson. Biggest playmaker in CFB that no one talks about. Think he’ll be a stud special teamer and nickel back at the next level.

      • Volume12 says:

        Jeezuz. 21 passes defended (16 PBU & 5 INTs)?!?

        • charlietheunicorn says:

          Did you see he has had 5, 4, 5 INTS in 3 years??
          He is 5’9″ 185 pounds, so he is pretty small. What kind of speed does he have? He should be a burner (and have nice agility) being that light!

          • Eli says:

            Not sure on his speed, but I expect his agility and vertical will test well. Dude also hits like a sledge hammer:

            • JimQ says:

              Currently, after 12 games; Both of these players are under the radar and their stats aren’t yet being acknowledged or recognized.

              Luqman Barcoo from SDSU is #1 in passes defended with 24-total PD’s, including 8-INT
              CB-Amik Roberson from La Tech is #2 in passes defended with 21, including 5-INT.

              CB(slot)-Amik Robertson, La. Tech(FCS), 5-9/183, projected 4.47/40, #2 in FCS passes defended. 2019: 12-games, 54-tkls, 38-solo, 7.0-TFL, 1.0-sack, 16-PBU, 5-INT, 1-QBH, 1-FF. Currently unranked @ drafttech.com

              CB-Luqman Barcoo, SDSU, 6-1/175, projected 4.51/40, #1 in FBS in passes defended.
              2019: 12-games, 8-INT, 16-PBU, 5-TFL, .5-sacks, Currently #202-overall @ draftteck.com

              Either CB could be a potential Seahawk target in the later rounds/UDFA area with Robertson limited to the slot & Barcoo needing to fill out his frame and adding muscle, so both would likely be developmental players for the future. Both would seem to have great ball skills.

    • charlietheunicorn says:

      OL (OG) could be a surprise that sticks in later rounds.
      They also like their developmental CBs, so maybe one gem slips into their hands as well.
      RB (or FB) could be a major contributor, no matter what round as well.

      But you are correct sir, the majority will be bottom of the roster guys or ST only players year #1.

    • DC says:

      Colorado LBs Davion Taylor (LB/S hybrid) & Nate Landman (jr) could garner some interest from the Hawks as teamers.
      Did Seattle attend any Buffs games this year?

    • Sea Mode says:

      I actually added a tab to my scouting notes database this year: “ST studs”. Always compete here on SDB as well!

      So here are a couple names for ya:

      Florida WR Tyrie Cleveland

      Michigan LB Jordan Glasgow

  12. Awsi Dooger says:

    I posted last week on a Dolphins site that Justin Herbert would be better served in a specialty league that doesn’t allow passes behind the line of scrimmage, kind of like that basketball league that didn’t allow anyone taller than 6-4.

    Otherwise I have no idea what you do with him. There are so many Oregon play designs that don’t translate 1% to the NFL, and Herbert defaults to those plays in key situations.

  13. DC says:

    LOB Bowl today.

    Pretty cool to see Sherman and Thomas contributing on the 2 hottest teams in the league. I’m happy for them.

  14. Paul Cook says:

    Very interested in this Ravens/49ers game. It’s looking like Lamar Jackson is going to be the MVP if the Ravens keep winning. As Rob mentioned before, once the narrative momentum starts gaining steam and traction in matters like this, it starts taking on an aura of inevitability.

    I’m a Ravens and Lamar Jackson fan today.

  15. Kenny Sloth says:

    Balty v Santa Clara and Pitt v Cleveland some decent morning games 👌

  16. Volume12 says:

    Cancel the game. Too much rain. Gotta think about the player safety (even though the player themselves don’t). If they won’t eho else will ya know?

    Stay woke.

  17. Volume12 says:

    DEEBO!

    Love the aggressive call

  18. Volume12 says:

    Think Indy needs some help at WR? Their 4 wideouts today wouldn’t even get a snap for ‘Bama.

    Zach Pascal
    Chester Rogers
    Marcus Johnson
    Ashton Dulin

  19. WALL UP says:

    Niners don’t have chance in stopping them.

  20. cha says:

    Good grief, Earl. Nice “attempt” at a tackle.

  21. Paul Cook says:

    With it looking like the Dallas Cowboy and USC head coaching jobs opening up, the Urban Meyer rumor mill is going to be going crazy now.

    • Aaron says:

      Urban Meyer in the Pac-12 would be a huge boost for the conference. When USC and Oregon are elite, the conference is seen in a much better light nationally then when a UW or Utah are elite. It’s unfortunate that it’s that way, but it’s that way.

      • Paul Cook says:

        As a Husky fan, I don’t give a crap about USC or Oregon and how we’re better perceived nationally as a conference when they’re seen to be elite. What matters to me as a Husky fan is that…

        1) The PAC 12 champion gets an automatic berth in the CFP (coming eventually, hopefully soon)
        2) Our commissioner quits letting our games get scheduled in horrible time slots
        3) That we improve our officiating
        4) That we drive harder bargains with the networks and the NCAA
        5) A few other things

        Thank heaven that our commissioner at least ended our conference championship being played in Santa Clara. What a bust of an idea that was. It will now be played in the new stadium in Las Vegas and draw many more fans and interest.

        • charlietheunicorn says:

          They should only play 8 conference games, then schedule another cupcake, like “certain other power 5 conferences”. I didn’t even know about this until a few years back and it is complete garbage that schools are not even close to playing on the same schedule playing field.

        • Matt says:

          My rebuttal:

          1) You are only going to get that if USC is a contender. Otherwise the Pac 12 is on the outside looking in. I get the appeal of an 8 team playoff but it will be an absolute mess. 4 has it’s downfalls but it’s better than a watered down 8.
          2) Again, a better USC gets prime time games nationally. They will make the competitor in the North look that much better on paper, which helps tv.
          3) Officiating is a problem across the board. Doesn’t matter the conference. Heck, the NFL is atrocious too.
          4) You can only drive harder bargains when you have leverage. USC is a big leverage chip to have when they are doing well.

          Unfortunately, USC, at the moment, is the only Pac 12 program that can drive changes with their success. Every other program is regional, even UW and Oregon.

          • Paul Cook says:

            My rebuttal…

            1) Going to an 8 team playoff with all power 5 conference winners going to the CFP is already baked into the cake. It’s just how fast it’s going to happen. It’s been trending in that direction since the BCS. It’s not going to stop. Outside of the fact that it makes perfect sense, there’s just too much money to be made.

            2) Our commissioner just completely effed up all our deals with the networks and the NCAA. This is pretty common knowledge in hindsight. Case in point: UW game not being shown when it started because of a contract commitment with a network to get to the end of a truck racing event. LOL

            3) No, the PAC 12 is NOTORIOUS for poor officiating. Our standards are below other conferences. Why even last year we had the league guy butt in and overturn a replay call during a game. Ridiculous.

            4) The commissioner represents the whole PAC 12, not just USC. I will openly acknowledge USC’s more national legacy appeal, but the conference will do well when the whole conference is doing better.

      • John_s says:

        Correction it’s when USC is elite. No one gives two sh*ts nationally about Oregon being good

        • Matt says:

          Totally agree. You need USC to be elite/great. Oregon…they have some flash for 18 year old recruits but nationally speaking it’s just another Pac 12 Program.

          Everybody in the Pac 12 should want USC to be great. The conference is slowly sliding into oblivion and needs a national jolt. USC is the only school that has that power.

          **Yes, fellow UW fans – I love the Huskies but they will never have that type of pull unless they pull a Clemson and routinely make the Playoffs.

  22. WALL UP says:

    Ravens can’t stop the Niners either.

  23. Paul Cook says:

    Come on Ravens. Do the 12’s a solid today.

  24. Aaron says:

    THANK YOU RAVENS!!!

  25. SoCal12 says:

    Thank you Llama man. This makes Monday a very interesting game.

  26. New Guy says:

    Totally looked like a typical Seahawks game….

    .

  27. Brazilian Hawk says:

    Big game tomorrow.

  28. Paul Cook says:

    Playing for the division lead and the #2 seed tomorrow night on MNF. Don’t think the players don;t know this. We just got some major hype for this game. It’s going to be fun, and the Clink will be rocking. What a year this is turning out to be.

  29. McZ says:

    Gardner’s back!

  30. Running through the playoff calculator if our only loss the rest of the way was to san fran in the final game of the year and if san fran lost to new orleans next week then Hawks win the division. So many playoff scenerio’s right now. Hope we just win out… will be at the game on Monday night.

  31. Sea Mode says:

    Not really a surprise, but I’ll take it.

    Tom Pelissero
    @TomPelissero
    2h

    A surprise: The #Vikings have ruled Adam Thielen (hamstring) OUT for Monday night at Seattle.

  32. vbullen65 says:

    Hi Rob- I’m a big fan of the blog. A quick question, how many spots do you think the Seahawks could move up in the 1st round if they traded one of their 2nd round picks?

  33. CHawk Talker Eric says:

    No idea if he’ll declare this year, but UCLA TE Devin Asiasi (rJR) is one to watch. Bigger than most TEs at 6’5″ 280lbs he moves well and has decent hands. He was one of the bright spots for UCLA at the Rose Bowl vs Cal last night (8 recs for 99 yards).

  34. Hawks4life says:

    Tom Brady is old and shows, it’s going to be interesting to see what happens after the seasons over

    • Paul Cook says:

      Yeah, he’s older and slower, no doubt. But the real problem is that their receivers are not getting separation, not getting open. He simply doesn’t have targets to throw to. He can still do that.

      • mishima says:

        Do what? Looks to me like Brady can’t make the throws he used to and is now blaming his receivers. Not a good look on the sidelines.

        • Kenny Sloth says:

          +1 look at the way he has to step into simple sideline throws.

          He looks as agile as he’s ever been, but that arm might be toast.

  35. charlietheunicorn says:

    Hum, Patriots looking bad.

    Excellent.

    • DC says:

      Bad? Nah. Beatable? Yes

      The AFC finally has a host of young QBs to challenge Brady for the right to represent. Jackson, Mahomes & Watson make an exciting trio. Sooner or later the guard is going to change.

  36. WALL UP says:

    I guess it’s not how you start but how you finish. Now, it’s finish time.

  37. RWIII says:

    Hey guys. Did yoy notice that Jacob Martin had a nice game against the Patriots. Martin had 1.5 sacks. Three tackles.

    • CHawk Talker Eric says:

      Yes I noticed. I’m thrilled we got Clowney but I wish they hadn’t traded Martin. He was one of the more promising situational players on the roster.

      • Sea Mode says:

        Much better fit for 3-4 though.

        • charlietheunicorn says:

          I’m glad he is getting a chance to shine. He is playing almost full time it looks like, unlike in Seattle where he was getting limited snaps. Ironically, it looks like they are trying to play Griffin in his old spot as a pass rusher. I would keep tabs on a guy of similar size and speed in the upcoming draft, because they love that explosive speed and ability to close of the QB… even if the guy is “tiny”.

  38. UkAlex6674 says:

    Just for the record, I have a feeling that we will win tonight, and it don’t think it will even be close. GO HAWKS!

  39. Kenny Sloth says:

    Let’s f’ing go!!!!!

    23-17 Hawks

  40. Adog says:

    Meyers misses a Pat and a 51 yard field full. A improbable hawk loss looks imminent…until Quinton Patterson strips the ball away from cook. Meyers kicks the game winner. Hawks 20-vikes 17

  41. Paul Cook says:

    Edge Seahawks tonight. I do think, however, that our passing game is going to have to get back on track tonight for us to win. If there’s been a weakness to the Vikings on offense and defense it’s been their secondary. I think we’re going to need a strong performance by RW to win it, and that means decent pass protection, holding onto passes, Tyler Lockett reemerging, and possibly some more Josh Gordon.

    Anything can happen. I do like our chances at home tonight on national TV, though.

    Chris Petersen announced Monday that he will step down from his position as University of Washington head football coach following the Huskies’ bowl game.

    10:52 AM – 2 Dec 2019 from

    Peterson moving into an “athletics advisory role” with Huskies. Jimmy Lake will be named HC.

    WOW

    • Volume12 says:

      Whoa.

      Lake is an excellent recruiter.

    • mishima says:

      Not surprised. Coached like he was in pain.

    • Aaron says:

      I had a feeling that he’d step down soon. He looked really tired this season. The only way Jimmy Lake was going to stay here was as the coach. His time as a coordinator was only going to last so long. Now get Meyer at USC and the Pac-12 might be relevant again nationally.

      • Paul Cook says:

        All coaches eventually resign, move on, get fired, or die. But this still STUNNED me as a Husky fan when I heard the news. Yeah, this was a disappointing year, but UW is not like Alabama or OSU or Clemson now who merely reload every year. We still have off years/gap years where the talent has to catch up to expectations/hopes for success. In other words, we’re like most good programs below the elite.

        But Coach Pete did look especially tired, frustrated, and annoyed this year. There was this quote by Fox analyst, former Husky QB, and forever Dawg Brock Huard that seemed fitting…

        “Doing this job that I do and getting to see the shortcuts others take
        and the amount of rampant cheating in college football…to have a guy
        that I full confidence that doesn’t play in that gray area and really
        is willing to live in the black and white, even if it’s costly to some
        of the recruiting battles, it’s very, very commendable and something
        worthy to be very, very proud of,” said FOX analyst and former UW
        quarterback Brock Huard.  “But I do think that eventually–and I don’t
        mind this being on the record–that takes a toll.  If that’s the
        direction (college football) is going over the long term, I just don’t
        think he was willing and wanting to play the game.”

        Anyway…

    My guy! Turns out I’ve got an eye for talent after all… 😉

    The @Reeses #SeniorBowl would like to welcome DB Dane Jackson (@Djack11_) to the 2020 Senior Bowl! @Pitt_FB

    Reagor declares. His dad won a SB with the Colts? Cool.

    https://mobile.twitter.com/TheJalenReagor/status/1201576816718299137

  45. Sea Mode says:

    Hate to do it, but I can’t pull this one tonight; gotta work tomorrow. But I’ll catch the replay as soon as I get home, no spoilers.

    Sending all good vibes Jason Myers’ way like the past two weeks before I sign off.

    Oh, and final score: Seahawks 27, Vikings 20.

  46. Trevor says:

    Anyone had a chance to take a detailed look at Trey Smith (Vols) as Guard prospect. He has had serious medical issues with blood clots but when he has lined up as a Guard in the SEC he has dominated. Definitely a Guard not a Tackle but depending on his medicals he is a guy I would like the Hawks to take a close look at.

    • Rob Staton says:

      I think he’s overrated due to the recruiting hype. It also bothers me that he looks for his name on Twitter and seems to focus on criticism. I suspect he will last into the draft and maybe based on the upside he could be developed. But I’m not going to hope the Seahawks are the ones taking that chance.

      • Trevor says:

        Thanks for the feedback. I was curious because what I have seen of him looked dominant. Didn’t know about the social media stuff.

      • Coleslaw says:

        Just curious, why does that bother you?

        Idk anything more about it than what you said, but maybe hes using it as a chip on his shoulder?

        It does make him seem a little selfish, though. (Selfish isnt the right word). Kinda makes me think he might be one of the guys who changes a lot after he gets paid.

  47. Trevor says:

    As things stand now I would love to see the Hawks focus on DL in free agency and offense early in the draft.

    -Resign Clowney
    -Option #1 Free Agent Chris Jones / Option #2 Dante Fowler.
    -Let Reed and Ifedi test the market and only extend on team friendly deals
    -Cut Britt or restructure

    Draft
    RD #1 WR (Smith or Raegor)
    Rd #2 Traded to TB for OJ Howard
    Rd #2 Neville Gilmore (DT / Oklahoma)
    Rd #3 Nick Harris (Center / Washington) may have to take Harris in Rd #2 but I hope he slides a little because he is undersized.

    • -Resigning Clowney is good

      -Just not sure on Jones as I see Reed as the same guy and would rather keep my own player. Fowler could be a good option but I still believe that Greene will be a big part next year. Personally I would rather draft an edge guy who can get mixed in.

      -I am also for letting these guys test Free Agency. I think I would rather let Ifedi go (if he gets huge dollars) and sign Fant and let him and Jones battle it out for RT

      -Britt is a tricky one as you dont want a bunch of turnover there. If we lose Lupati, Ifedi, and Britt thats 60% and there goes your continuity so I would like to keep Britt some way.

      Draft
      I like your draft picks maybe RD2 some kind of speed edge rusher.

      I could talk about this stuff all day long.

  48. charlietheunicorn says:

    A couple of hours until sexy time

    The weather will be brisk/cold, but no wind or rain predicted.

    Should be a good game, similar to the 49er/Ravens game this last weekend.
    Some smash mouth /hard hitting football between two very good teams.

  49. Coleslaw says:

    Thank God for the Seahawks after a bad day at work. Time to kick some arse!!!

    I’m expecting to give up some chunk plays in the passing game, at the price of slowing Dalvin Cook down.

    This should come down to offense. Who can slow down the other offense more?

    Seattle is a better O, even before Thielen was out. They might be able to stay more balanced but after halftime, I’m confident that we can outscore them plentifully.

  50. Paul Cook says:

    It’s almost party time. Hopefully next time I check into this site it’s in Rob’s “instant reaction” thread after a Seahawk victory to take first place.

    Go Hawks!

  51. CHawk Talker Eric says:

    Y’all ready for some football?!?

    Go Hawks!

  52. CHawk Talker Eric says:

    Tonight is, well, the rest of the season. Win and take the top spot in the NFCw and 2nd seed in the NFC. Lose and drop behind MIN for the 2nd WC spot.

    Here’s to the Seahawks playing to their potential.

  53. Kenny Sloth says:

    Go Hawks

    (Baby Yoda Russ is killing me rn)

  54. CHawk Talker Eric says:

    Still want to trade Penny?

  55. Rob Staton says:

    Looks like it might be Penny’s time…

  56. CHawk Talker Eric says:

    Totally blown tackle by KJ

  57. Hawks4life says:

    KJ you need to wrap up!!!!

  58. CHawk Talker Eric says:

    Where’s the tackling tonight?

  59. Rob Staton says:

    That was the ‘hot knife through butter’ defense we saw in the first nine games.

  60. Coleslaw says:

    Its all good. A lot of time left.

  61. Kenny Sloth says:

    Start & Win a Super Bowl against Tom Brady
    Pass for 7 TDs in a game
    Benched for Gardner Minshew

    Which of these things would you have thought most likely to occur in Nick Foles’ career?

  62. CHawk Talker Eric says:

    That sack was all on Wilson

  63. CHawk Talker Eric says:

    Hello Flash!

  64. Kenny Sloth says:

    Penny is so unconvincing lowering the shoulder.

    Backs getting hit not hitting the D this far

  65. CHawk Talker Eric says:

    Nice catch by DK!

  66. Rob Staton says:

    Lovely design on that TD run for Carson.

    • CHawk Talker Eric says:

      Great block by Fant to seal the defender outside at the LOS and give Carson the crease off Brown’s shoulder

  67. Volume12 says:

    14 play, 8 minute drive is impressive.

  68. CHawk Talker Eric says:

    We got ourselves a ball game

    Hey where are my dogs at?

  69. Henry Taylor says:

    Wilson called his shot, great answer.

  70. mishima says:

    Looks like Metcalf’s been working the JUGS Machine with Volume12.

  71. Hawks4life says:

    Teams have got to start planning for this 2 header monster we have at RB. Keep them fresh for the playoffs Pete!

  72. Trevor says:

    Dalvin Cook is really good.

  73. CHawk Talker Eric says:

    Nice play by Rasheem Green

  74. Rob Staton says:

    Do not like how they motioned Stefon Diggs so easily to get a matchup vs KJ there.

  75. Kenny Sloth says:

    Love when our LBs are covering their #1 WR.

    Recipe for success

  76. CHawk Talker Eric says:

    McDougald is off to a great start tonight. Couple of near sacks and now this stop on 3rd down

  77. Rob Staton says:

    Credit to Minnesota… they’re covering extremely well here. Passing game a chore so far, every completion earned.

  78. Kenny Sloth says:

    Very good football from both squads and staffs thus far, very pleasing on the eye. My kind of ball

    • Volume12 says:

      Agreed. Smashmouth.

      2 excellent coaches who’ve forgotten more about this game than most can ever learn.

  79. CHawk Talker Eric says:

    Seems like Umadi is always downfield on punt coverage in the returner’s face. Nice punt by Dickson. Wish they could’ve moved the ball a little more to flip the field but that punt kinda makes up for not.

  80. Rob Staton says:

    This MNF crew talks waaaaaaay too much.

  81. CHawk Talker Eric says:

    Good challenge

  82. Volume12 says:

    Oh no. A PC challenge. Should be interesting.

  83. Volume12 says:

    Diggs!

    Delecious

  84. CHawk Talker Eric says:

    Diggs laying the wood!

  85. CHawk Talker Eric says:

    Fantastic stop on 3rd down!

  86. mishima says:

    D A M N.

  87. mishima says:

    I’d like to see them take a deep shot, here, on 1st. Suspect Schotty is setting them up.

  88. Volume12 says:

    Carson is holding the ball differently on some runs. Sounds cliche, but high & tight

  89. Volume12 says:

    Why did Russ do that?!?

  90. Rob Staton says:

    What is Russell doing there???

  91. Rob Staton says:

    That’s exactly the type of bonehead nonsense that happened in the Saints & Ravens games. Cheap points conceded yet again in a big home game.

  92. CHawk Talker Eric says:

    Bollocks

  93. Kenny Sloth says:

    Lamar Jackson: Is this your MVP?

  94. Volume12 says:

    Great play call on 3rd & short.

  95. Kenny Sloth says:

    Nice play by Penny, but he is not the guy to run through a mf

    • Volume12 says:

      Not a finisher, but they got a hammer in Carson.

      • Kenny Sloth says:

        Thunder + Lightning is overrated

        I’ll double down on thunder all day. Scat backs are a package thing unless it’s a legit franchise back talent.

        Our backfield is Confusing af

  96. CHawk Talker Eric says:

    Hollister continues to step up

  97. Pran says:

    That’s the kind of pick 6 Hawks needed to make Cousins panic. Such a bad break and free points for Vikes.

  98. CHawk Talker Eric says:

    OL is having a nice game

  99. Rob Staton says:

    Well, tonight could be the end of the Wilson MVP campaign.

  100. Volume12 says:

    Not a fan of throwing it 3 in a row from the 11 or 12.

  101. Pran says:

    Hope Meyer drills it through middle.. he is giving heartache in a close game

  102. Matt says:

    Why are we not good at home? Might be a blessing to lose and have to go on the road.

  103. Rob Staton says:

    That pick six is an absolute back breaker in a game like this. They’re going to spend the second half chasing those seven points now — just like they had to do with the turnovers vs New Orleans & Baltimore.

    This is a really weird season. So many turnovers and terrible at home yet somehow 9 wins so far and unbeaten on the road.

    • Matt says:

      Feels like reality is finally catching up to the Hawks. Maybe we really are a 9 win team that simply got lucky. Don’t know, but this is just ugly. RW looks just average going on almost a month now.

  104. CHawk Talker Eric says:

    Kirk Cousins is a much improved QB

    • Rob Staton says:

      Everything is so managed tonight though and our defense just can’t do anything. It’s screens, runs, easy throws, so conservative. And it’s methodically working because on the other side they’re making us earn every yard and they have the ridiculous pick six.

      • CHawk Talker Eric says:

        I was more thinking about the Kirk Cousins of seasons past. This one is better than before. They may be managing him a lot, but he’s doing well in it.

    • Pran says:

      Ultra conservative..

  105. Coleslaw says:

    We’re a 2nd half team. We will outscore them 17-7 in the 2nd half

    27-24 Seattle

  106. Volume12 says:

    And that was why they shouldn’t have abandoned the run. Especially from the 10 f***n’ 10 yard line.

  107. Pran says:

    That fumble was ours… Refs were kind to review and rule everything in Vikes favor

  108. Volume12 says:

    On a side note.

    Really happy to see Derrius Guice finally starting to get healthy. 10 carries, and 113 yds after contact yesterday.

  109. DC says:

    It’d be nice to see a pass rush in the 2nd half

  110. Kelly says:

    Still not sold on this defense. I just don’t see much physicality besides Diggs.

  111. Pran says:

    We need to sack Cousins if we need picks and fumbles. pressure wasn’t good enough to force bad Kirk show up

  112. Tony says:

    Yall act like this isnt our M.O. We always do this exact game nearly every week. Give free points dropped opportunities. Blame coaching, lack of concentration or just flukiness. This will end in a 1 score game. It is the Pete Carroll way.

  113. WALL UP says:

    You can never have enough PRs, Shaq, Clowney & Ansah together again.

  114. Rob Staton says:

    Vikings secondary playing brilliantly tonight.

  115. Volume12 says:

    No false start? Alrighty.

  116. CHawk Talker Eric says:

    Definitely not one of Russ’s better games.

  117. Rob Staton says:

    I hate those out of bounds flags.

    So cheap, even when they benefit us.

    • Coleslaw says:

      I think it’s a good thing to penalize.

      • Rob Staton says:

        It is when it favours us. But when a player initiates contact in bounds and then completes the process out of bounds and gets flagged — it’s so undeserved. For any team. And it’s asking the players in the most physical game in the world to consider where they are when ‘finishing’ tackles to avoid flags, which is unrealistic.

        • Pran says:

          That’s a well deserved flag. He can seriously hurt Carson on the sideline if he is thrown like that in to equipment / folks.

  118. Rob Staton says:

    Carson big run… checks out of the game on 1st and goal. Come on man.

  119. Volume12 says:

    This 1-2 punch at RB is heating up.

  120. CHawk Talker Eric says:

    Great series for the running game. Penny is really stepping up

  121. Pran says:

    Looks like Penny turned corner. He is confident, strong and decisive.

  122. Rob Staton says:

    MNF stop bloody jinxing us with all these ‘Wilson unbeaten vs the Vikings’ and ‘Cousins has never won on MNF’ graphics.

  123. CHawk Talker Eric says:

    YES! McDougald with the fumble recovery!

  124. Volume12 says:

    We’re cooking now!

    Rasheem the puppy is becoming a big dawg!

  125. Henry Taylor says:

    Huuuuuge!

  126. Rob Staton says:

    There’s our guy — McDougald. Yes we’re taking ownership of him now after weeks of highlighting how AWESOME he’s playing.

    Rasheem Green turning into ‘big play Rasheem’ too.

  127. Hawks4life says:

    David Moore has to make that catch IMO

  128. Rob Staton says:

    Bloody hell this is becoming a war of attrition.

  129. Kenny Sloth says:

    Any penalties for Seattle yet? Dont think so

  130. DC says:

    Where’s our QB?

  131. CHawk Talker Eric says:

    Booger McFarland says Wilson was just a little bit off on that throw to Moore. Not even close. Wilson put that pass right where it should be. It was Moore who blew the reception. I don’t enjoy listening to Booger

  132. Matt says:

    WR is a major need. Moore can’t play. Lockett is clearly hurt…nearly non-existent. Critical need.

  133. Kenny Sloth says:

    Why cant we do an all black uniform w green trim or something. Can’t get over these duds

  134. Coleslaw says:

    This is a WAY tougher team than we gave them credit for the first month+ of the season.

  135. mishima says:

    Another Wilson stat: 8 straight years trying to be cool. Ain’t happening.

    😉

  136. CHawk Talker Eric says:

    Carson’s so hot he’s getting Gatorade down his back

  137. Coleslaw says:

    Honestly seems like Penny is the better bet to get yards in some situations.

  138. Hawks4life says:

    I’ll forgive more for that drop!

  139. Rob Staton says:

    WTF happened to Xavier Rhodes this year?

  140. Volume12 says:

    Now that was cool.

  141. CHawk Talker Eric says:

    Wow Moore was all alone. Just blew past his defender. Great pass by Wilson.

    That TD celebration took some choreography. I wonder when they get together to practice 😂

  142. Henry Taylor says:

    Now that’s a third quarter! 17-0

  143. Rob Staton says:

    Come on D… hold tight fella’s. No big plays. No soft coverage to concede easy yards either if possible please.

  144. WALL UP says:

    Looks like they took Rhodes helmet from him. No more Rhodes?

  145. Rob Staton says:

    WHAT A PLAY BY TRE!!!!!

  146. CHawk Talker Eric says:

    OMG Flowers with the circus INT!

  147. Kenny Sloth says:

    Beautifully blocked

  148. Hawks4life says:

    I thought Penny was a bust?

  149. CHawk Talker Eric says:

    Fans who stress that Duane Brown is getting too old should watch replays of that last play where he gets outside and downfield to block for Penny. Dude’s moving well for an old guy 😉

  150. Volume12 says:

    Penny & Carson show!

  151. CHawk Talker Eric says:

    SO happy they’re feeding Penny (and happy he’s eating it up). There was talk of trading him a couple of weeks ago?

  152. mishima says:

    The evolution of the secondary has been so fun to watch. Tre + Shaq coming into their own, McDougald’s all-around game, the addition of Diggs’ thump, Blair and Amadi as depth. Great story and testament to Pete’s genius with DBs.

  153. Kenny Sloth says:

    Penalty against the Seahawks, yet?

  154. Rob Staton says:

    That’s so cheap and sloppy and typical really. Why can’t anything ever be easy?

    • CHawk Talker Eric says:

      Blown assignment somewhere between Griffin and McD. Really ugly. Also the MIN RB screen is just gashing us. They’ve managed a few key 3rd down conversions on that screen.

    • Pran says:

      Fans can’t have enough heartaches.. defense took it easy…that’s gonna haunt McD and Griffin

    • Kenny Sloth says:

      Can’t win the game in the third quarter.

      Such a clean game by both teams outside of a few freak plays and blown assignments. Every one has been game changing

  155. Volume12 says:

    McDougald gets caught cheating.

  156. Trevor says:

    flowers and Griffin are developing into one of the best young pair of CB in the league. If
    Amadi can step up at the Nickel spot next year or they add someone this secondary is going to be really solid.

  157. WALL UP says:

    It’s hard to communicate with the noise level so high. BMac missed that with Shaq.

  158. Tony says:

    Great lesson about not doing your job. That’ll be highlighted tomorrow in review.

  159. Pran says:

    There is so much time left .. gawd. Last thing we wanted is giving up clock saving easy points

  160. Hawks4life says:

    Travis Homer sighting!!!

  161. Henry Taylor says:

    What a ballsy call! I love it.

  162. CHawk Talker Eric says:

    LOVE this call!

  163. Volume12 says:

    Inject that directly into my veins!

    Big balls Pete!

  164. Kenny Sloth says:

    Fire Brian Schneider

    So I can marry him

  165. Rob Staton says:

    No idea why we’re taking deep shots having run all day and needing to kill time.

  166. CHawk Talker Eric says:

    Was gonna say before that fake punt, and I mean no disrespect to Russ, but an MVP makes that pass to Carson, even on the run with a defender in his face. We’ve seen him make plays like that so it’s not a criticism of his ability but rather his consistency. Gotta convert those plays, especially when you have the physical tools to do it.

  167. Hawks4life says:

    WTF is with Metcalf in clutch situations….

  168. Rob Staton says:

    For crying out loud how many fumbles!?!?!

  169. CHawk Talker Eric says:

    Oh DK cmon man

    Wow an incomplete pass that’s a huge call

  170. Rob Staton says:

    How the hell have they not called that a fumble. Clear fumble. They will win this challenge.

  171. Kenny Sloth says:

    @ rookie wr touches

    • Pran says:

      DK and Carson need to challenge each other… DK hardly gets 4 or 5 touches a game and he is
      Making a mess consistently.

  172. Rob Staton says:

    D.K. is a fun, exciting player.

    But my word there are SO many issues to work on. Ball security, high-pointing, box-out. These are not minor issues.

    • Kenny Sloth says:

      Rob we knew this. His highs translate so much better than I expected and his mentality is maybe his best trait or amazing PR job to color him as the 2nd hardest working guy in the locker room. Maybe a bit of both

  173. Tony says:

    When can I worry about DK ability to drop everything. For a beast of a player, he has really soft grips.

  174. Volume12 says:

    Trying to do too much. Just take the yards.

    No one cares about fighting for needlessly extra yards up 10.

  175. Rob Staton says:

    Busted coverage and a fumble turnover.

    This is why we can’t have nice easy finishes.

  176. Rob Staton says:

    HOW was that completed???

  177. CHawk Talker Eric says:

    Pass rush needs to get to Cousins on this play

  178. Rob Staton says:

    Now a huge PI.

    Good grief what’s going on???

    Why are we throwing this away?

  179. CHawk Talker Eric says:

    Diggs totally created that PI

  180. CHawk Talker Eric says:

    Refs blew the whistle too early again

  181. Kenny Sloth says:

    Vintage Clowney

  182. Rob Staton says:

    Oh come on lads.

    This is unbelievable.

  183. Hawks4life says:

    It’s not over till its over…. we know that all to well as Seahawks fans. Let’s hope that Russell has one last drive for the night

  184. CHawk Talker Eric says:

    Big missed PAT

  185. Volume12 says:

    Lol.

  186. Kenny Sloth says:

    Big boy football now

  187. Pran says:

    Unbelievable shit

  188. Kelly Orr says:

    K.J. looks uncoordinated and like a drowning kid in a swimming pool when he’s in coverage.

  189. CHawk Talker Eric says:

    A clock eating drive to end the game is what we need. This offense has done a couple in this game already so they can do it

  190. Pran says:

    3 big mistakes and game is on line

  191. Hawks4life says:

    With Lockett being hurt, DKs issues, Moore and his constant drops and Jaron “the ghost” Brown I wonder what’s keeping them from feeding Gordon. I imagine it’s the chemistry and lack of knowing the plays, but I’d like him to get some opportunities along with Turner.

  192. Rob Staton says:

    Oh come on Russell. WHAT ARE THEY DOING????

  193. Kenny Sloth says:

    OL massive tonight regardless of outcome.

  194. CHawk Talker Eric says:

    JFC Wilson that’s just inexcusable

    Definitely not MVP play

  195. mishima says:

    Typically too cute.

  196. WALL UP says:

    This day the MVP is lost by Wilson.

  197. CHawk Talker Eric says:

    Quite remarkable and discouraging to watch Seattle trying to piss this win away. Poor execution, poor concentration, poor clock management.

  198. Trevor says:

    Russ can’t take a sack like that in that spot.

  199. Tony says:

    What a massive letdown to a game we had won.

  200. Pran says:

    I hate the passing game.. wasting so much clock looking for those big plays yet again and a fumble to boot.

  201. CHawk Talker Eric says:

    This is almost too painful to watch

  202. WALL UP says:

    IR for Ansah.

  203. CHawk Talker Eric says:

    Huge stand!

  204. Hawks4life says:

    Hold the celebration they still have 3 TO

  205. CHawk Talker Eric says:

    A couple of first downs wins the game

  206. Volume12 says:

    Shoulda been feeding Carson 7 minutes ago. IMO anyways

  207. CHawk Talker Eric says:

    YES!

  208. WALL UP says:

    Maybe they play a complete game on Sunday.

  209. mishima says:

    Love Iupati’s example and leadership. Great addition to the OL.

  210. CHawk Talker Eric says:

    Unreal

  211. Volume12 says:

    Yes sir!

  212. Volume12 says:

    Better be able to play STs as a position playet if you want to stick on Seattle’s 53. Why I suspect Jennings didn’t.

    Homer was huge tonight

  213. Kelly says:

    Played like smashed dog shit but a Win is Win.

  214. Tony says:

    This years team baffles me

    It is the most clutch, big play team while simultaneously being the most frustrating careless team. It just baffles me how the tide changes so abruptly each game. Like a boxer who just throws wild haymakers while leaving himself open for shots all game.

  215. Kenny Sloth says:

    Only penalty was the savvy play to get PI by Diggs

  216. Kenny Sloth says:

    Tyler Lockett silenced
