    NFL 2019: Wild Card, Mitches!

    The way this needs to end is way it began, just in reverse. The Patriots built their dynasty by short-circuiting a would be Rams dynasty. Time for the Rams to return the favor. They even had their own Tuck Rule moment to get to this point. *files nails, waits*

    This is brutal...and he's totally right. What coach could be sustainably successful under Snyder? He's already employed 3 of the greatest coaches of all time (Schottenheimer, Gibbs, Shanahan). They've had some of the best minds as coordinators (K. Shanahan, McVay). They've had great talent evaluators as GM (McCloughan). All have left the organization disgraced, diminished. Kinda reminds me of another organization currently featured heavily in the news. You could bring Belichick in at this point and I'm convinced he'd go down in flames. If an organization is rotten to the core, nothing you do matters unless you change the person at the top. Danny Snyder is likely to live for another 30 years. Wonder if there'll be any Skins fans left at that point.

    Furthering your point: Congrats to Kingsbury though as the rare former college coach who will have a worse QB in the NFL than the guys he got to coach in college. The only other one I can think of is Jim Harbaugh (with the difference being Jim Harbaugh was actually successful as a college coach).

    McVay was on that staff too? Wow. He had to have been like 15 at the time. Presume his main role for the Grudens was coffee retrieval analytics.

    Oh that's weighted DVOA (i.e: only the last 6-8 weeks) and for the Titans that's gonna be better because they re-discovered what Derrick Henry can do. For the whole season it's here: https://www.footballoutsiders.com/stats/teamoff ETA: not nearly awake enough this morning

    I'm seeing 22nd and even that seems high. Where do you see 16th? Also 27th in points and 25th in yards. But congrats to LaFleur for discovering Derrick Henry was on his roster in week 14. Still a more impressive hire than the last guy the Packers pegged - Mike McCarthy the OC of the 1-15 2005 49ers. ETA: Also Maith, you'll be happy to hear he's now the 3rd assistant on the 2013 Redskins who is now a HC in this league (along with Shanahan and McVay).

    Thanks Week! Ok, Fuentez and JJ have both claimed their spots. Now just need to see if @RaceBannon42 is interested or if we have to go to a contingency plan.

    I get what you're saying. Tywin knows the system and you feel confident we can get at least a Mark Sanchez performance out of him.

    Thanks man. Didn't realize you had all those tough calls to make. That is pretty brutal. I too started Hogan in Experts and felt good about it; did not see the 0 coming. My one call was Zay Jones vs. John Ross and I chose wrong but looks like it only would've mattered if you went Hamilton/Humphries over Hogan. Foles obviously woulda been a clear league winner but woulda never advised starting him. Just glad Kamara carried the day. Turned out it was going to be down to the kickers by MNF/SNF and I wanted a margin considering Butker's been so good. And turned out that 2nd Kamara saved me. Sorry to (again) be the nail in the coffin of Experts this year but I have a feeling you're going to be back very shortly.

    Westeros Experts League 2018

    Finals Recap This ended up the highest scoring title game in Experts history and the closest one too -194.40-191.76. Only POTN in 2011 put up a higher score in a finals than either of the two teams this year. I basically had a dream week where just about every single player I was counting on, including fill-ins during the playoffs like Foles, McGuire and J. Williams all coming up big in the finals. Went from being a cursed season injury/suspension wise to a blessed one in the playoffs. And turned out I needed every last point as WJ came storming back from a 70 point deficit. And was one play away from taking the title on the strength of his own fill in guys - CJ Anderson and Damien Williams along with building an incredibly loaded team to begin with. About as tense and surreal of a finals as I've experienced. Still kinda can't believe I won. I've had way better teams in this league, that have gone against way lesser opponents than WJ's team this year, that have come up short. The vagaries of FFL... ....... Experts 2019 Anyway, based on the FFL thread, looks like we have precisely 3 qualified individuals to join Experts based on having won leagues and not being in Experts currently, and we have 3 open spots as Mudguard, Week and Bronn were not able to save their spots in other leagues (though Bronn came very close). The 3 qualifiers are: @J.J. Lannister winner of W-B @fuentez1138 winner of W-A, Survivor @RaceBannon42 winner of Dynasty, Keeper All 3 are eminently deserving and all 3 have previous stints in Experts. Hell Race even won the inaugural Experts season 11 years ago. If each of you could weigh in and let us know if you intend to join Experts next year, you have a spot waiting for you.
  13. Oh, clearly. He might not be a "good" quarterback by traditional metrics but the WRs will get their air yards and the women (and a good chunk of the men) in the crowd will leave completely satisfied. This is amazing. Love that this is guy with 3 first round picks next year. I'm pumped for when he takes Isaac Hempstead Wright with the 2nd overall pick next year.

    Experts Championship week is set: (1) WJ vs. (3) Jaime Mya had a rare off week which allowed my ramshackle duct-tape-and-balling-twine team to somehow advance. BL jumped out to a big lead off Mike Williams' unreal TNF performance but couldn't build on it on Sunday and ran into the typical Coldwater deluge. I mean I don't have a dog in this fight, but I think objectively we can call this Finals matchup the ultimate scrappy underdog vs. evil empire matchup we've seen in the finals in awhile. Personally I think it'll be a miracle if this Jaime guy finishes with 50 points of WJ. Good luck to both our finals participants!

    Thanks Dunk. Glad this ramshackle team I now have was able to scratch out a decent point total. I was sure Wilson would be terrifying in the Monday Nighter but for some reason didn't do much which made for a more relaxing night than I was expecting. BL also pulled off an upset over Drac as Drac's big advantage crumbled when Goff put up a unthinkable negative score against the Bears. Semis are now set: (1) WJ vs. (4) BL (2) Mya vs. (3) Jaime WJ is a massive favorite and Mya will be a solid one as well but nothing is written until the games are actually played* *When Mya will proceed to jump to an 80 point lead over me on TNF with Mahomes, Rivers and Hill all going against my no-one. God that game will be a horror show.
