    Tiebreaker: How many points will be scored on Monday Night?

    61


  2. Don't know if you have a thread where complaints can be aired, so took the liberty of starting one.

    I have one (duh).

    In yesterday's game vs Colts, Texans lost two QB's with nary a yellow hanky being thrown.

    Fitzpatrick was tripped and suffered a broken leg, and Tom Savage was hit in the thigh/knee region which looks to have damaged a ligament - the damage has not been fully disclosed yet.

    In the same game, Texans DE Jared Crick, tackled Andrew Luck and came into contact with his shoulder/neck area and was penalized for "necking".

    This is a contact sport, not some moonlit lakeside watching submarine races.

    I know Fitz and Savage are not Andrew Luck and Aaron Rogers, but these damn refs need to be consistent.

    Arizona have also had a rough year for QB's - but how many times does a team lose two in one game?

    Mumble mumble...

  5. The consensus #1 draft pick from the 2014 draft has been diagnosed with a micro-fracture injury to his knee.

    He will be out for at least 9 months and that type of injury is a dicey one for athletes of any stripe.

    Most do not recover sufficiently well for a NFL career but several notables have and went on to HoF careers.

    There is a chance he won't play next season either.

    Such a shame for the young man - so much potential and his dreams of football fame must be melting away.

    Let's hope he makes a successful comeback and has a great career.

    Texans lost RT 3rd round pick (2012) Brennan Williams to a similar injury last season.


  6. The Cardinals' fun is all but over. I think they finish 0-4. 32nd ranked rushing team that just lost Andre Ellington. They also just lost Tyrann Mathieu. The defense has carried them far, but there's no way you're going to out-score your opponents with the worst running game and Drew Stanton leading the passing attack. They have been a really good, but really unlucky team. Any Cardinals fans out there reading this, props to your season :beerchug:

     

    1. :Packers:

    2. :Seahawks:

    3. :Cowboys:

    4. :Saints:

    5. :Lions:

    6. :Eagles:

    I feel for the Cards - they went 10-6 last season and missed out. Green Bay were 8-7-1 from memory and hosted a playoff game.

  9.  

    :Bengals: 33 :Texans: 10

    In a matchup of bad quarterbacks, the more experienced and slightly less shitty Andy Dalton prevails due to the heroics of AJ Green and Mohamed Sanu. Ryan Mallet tosses 3 picks and plays like he's just snorted coke off of a urinal. The Texans defense tries to keep them in the game, but phenomenal athletes prevail in the end.

    :Lions: 20 :Patriots: 10

    The Motor City Kitties make a huge statement away from the Litter Box, stifling Tom Brady and the Patriots offense in a huge upset that sends the league ass over teakettle. Once again, Matt Stafford is bailed out by a defense that has proven time and time again this year that it can rise to the challenge of compensating for the wasted first overall pick that is Matt Stafford. Calvin Johnson hauls in a Stafford special, just-chuck-it-up-there touchdown and Joique Bell finds the endzone after being drastically underused in a recent game. Brady has one of his bad performances, not Tom Brady at Arrowhead bad, but he's human, after all.

     

    (OK, this is just me being hopeful. The likely score is NE 33 Detroit 13)

    :Seahawks: 30 :Cardinals: 17

    In a desperate attempt to keep themselves in the playoff hunt, the Seahawks put out their best performance of the year, riding Marshawn Lynch to a surprisingly easy victory. Drew Stanton, while very capable, is bound to have one poor performance this year, and it's going to happen in Seattle, today. However, I have one further prediction--IF the Cardinals win this game, they will play in this year's Super Bowl.

    :Cowboys: 37 :Giants: 17

    Dallas pulls away for good, this time, putting the G-Men away early and allowing themselves to rest DeMarco Murray, giving Joseph Randle 10+ carries. Romo throws for 2 and 1, and the Dallas defense forces 2 turnovers that turn into touchdowns. Terrance Williams has a nice day, catching both of Romo's scoring throws. Dez Bryant continues to rave about Williams, post-game.

    :Saints: 20 :Ravens: 13

    Yet again, the Ravens offense fails to meet its potential, falling short in the Super Dome, putting in place Baltimore's second consecutive season without a playoff birth and forcing the Ravens to think about starting somebody other than Joe Flacco at quarterback. Justin Forsett has another nice game, and the Ravens defense keeps them in it, but Flacco and the offense fail yet again.

    :Jets::Bills: ......

    WAIT WAIT WAIT, this is Big Game thread :yao:

     

    yo

     

    YAO

     

    I flip every one of your predictions - not the scores so much, but the w/l's.

    The vibes coming out of the Texans locker room is the best we have seen in a while and with Cushing back to form and our O-line stepping up, I would not be surprised to see Texans blow Bangles out.


  10. The best WR in the league has a statline of 0 receptions, 0 yards, and 0 touchdowns at this point in the season.

    Actually the best receiver in the league has 55 rec, 631 yds and 1 TD. ;^)

    Can't wait for him and Mallett to build some rapour.

    Starting Sunday.

  13. I found a couple interesting articles looking at how luck has played into this NFL season, I don't know anything about this source, but the articles are interesting, I'm including links at the bottom of this post so I won't go into the explanation, but it's worth clicking and reading

     

    the writer looked at five factors: Pythagorean win percentage v. actual win percentage; Record in close games; Strength of schedule; Fumble recovery percentage; and turnover differential

     

    here are the top five on both ends:

     

    Luckiest:

    1) :Cardinals:

    2) :Bills:

    3) :Patriots:

    4) :panthers:

    5) :Texans:

     

    Article: Ranking the NFL’s Luckiest Teams in 2014 - The Sports Post

     

    Unluckiest:

    1) :Saints:

    2) :Ravens:

    3) :Raiders:

    4) :Giants:

    5) :49ers:

     

    Article: Ranking the NFL’s Unluckiest Teams in 2014 - The Sports Post

     

    most interesting thing to me is seeing two sub-.500 teams on the luckiest five list and three teams at or above .500 on the unluckiest list

    If Texans were lucky they would have won that OT against Dallas and also won that close one against the Colts.

    Luck to me is overall, not just half a season - for example, Indianapolis Colts had Peyton Manning and then sucked for just one season, and look who was available to them in the draft. They will have the services of an elite QB for 25 years while some teams have never had one.

    I guess you could say Texans got lucky with Watt, but 10 other teams bypassed him.

    Yep, sour grapes.
