    Will Blount continue to have a job? Will he get cut? If Patricia keeps him around then there is no hope for Zenner.

    123 all purpose yards for Zenner still quite the day!

    Yea that's a great showing. He could easily be a 1000 yard rusher if given a fair chance. Happy for him - always amazes me when one of our guys at an ultra caste position manage to display resiliency and survive several caste purges to come out and have an impact.

    The last several weeks the Vikings have not targeted Thielen until late (under 2 min) in the half. If that doesn't change they will definitely lose today.

    I agree Kaptain. Get the ball to Thielen early and frequently. The guy is a game changer. This is a critical game for the Vikings. They have to find
    a way to win against a very talented Bear Defense.

    So happy to see Zenner almost get that 100 yard game. We all know he is capable of doing this in a weekly basis. This overpaid coach's are so pathetic.
    They just do not know how to evaluate talent similar to the scouts all across america. They are wrong more than they are right.

    Wow are the Browns serious? Make him try to throw the ball.

    I’d rather see that one. This Eagles vs Redskins game is extraordinarily boring.

    A few observations from the Saints vs Panthers, first the Saints Zach Line has taken over the lead 3rd-down back. I've seen Line take a few snaps here and there, but tonight he actually had some meaningful carries on 4 att for 19 yds and 1 rec for 5 yds.

    On defense DE Trey Hendrickson played in pretty much his first game this year on defense, and was 2nd most on the team with 6 tckls. I'm sure if the saints didn't wast Hendrickson's season he couldve produced similar to other young emerging DE's in Matt Ioannidis (8 sacks), Carl Nassib(7.0 sacks), and Kyler Fackrell (9.5 sacks).

    For the Panthers S Collin Jones started 1 game early in the season and for some reason he was quick to be replaced, he had like a solid 8-9 tckls tclks. Well Jones ended this season by showing what the Panthers have missed, by making a very athletic Int covering the WR like only the best CB's can.

    Minn sure isn't playing like their playoff hopes are on the line, and at home no less. Thielen and Cousins in a serious "conversation" on the sidelines. Notably, it was seemingly worked out, unlike 99 percent of upsiders blowups on NFL sidelines....

    Fackrell actually finished the season with 10.5.

    JJ is back with 15 on the season as well.

    This horrendous looking creature Lamar Jackson leading Baltimore to the playoffs is straight from the Book of Bigunreal, just like he had to be drafted in the first round.

    TJ Watt with a strip sack! his 12th of the year!

    EDIT: Jordy Nelson just got his 25 yard catch wiped by a penalty... He's sitting at 8-69 (11 targets).

    The Great Bills DT Kyle Williams is officially retired following today's, game he is perhaps one the best run-stopping DTs's ever. He was still going strong at 35 with 34 tckls and 5.5 sacks.

    Pulling hard for the Browns, and for Pitt. That's something yours truly has NEVER said in any forum... :)

    River Cracraft finally gets his first NFL reception, and it goes for 44 yards!

    Foles out with a chest injury. The Eagles now have Nate Sudfeld in - he was a Redskins draft pick a few years ago. Love the irony there as the Redskins mismanaged the QB situation - keeping only Smith and McCoy while jettisoning Sudfeld last year and Kevin Hogan earlier this offseason.

    Not looking good for the Vikes. That was a team I wanted to go all the way. Why they didn't find a way to get Thielen involved more the last half of the season is criminal.

    Minnesota is a huge disappointment to me. The whitest team in the NFL, returning most the players from last year when they went to the NFCCG, and now they’re about to miss the playoffs. They were supposed to be a quality QB away from taking that next step, but unfortunately Cousins hasn’t delivered this year, at least not for someone making 3/$84 million fully guaranteed. That’s elite, franchise QB money which means you have to put the team on your back when needed and pull out wins, as many great QBs do.

    What exactly happened to Cousins and the philosophy of this offense? Thielen had a record streak - it was no accident. Cousins seemed locked on to Thielen. Then suddenly the Vikings and Cousins notably stopped targeting Thielen particularly early in every game. After the streak, I don't know if he got a single target in the first quarter of any game. That is just bizarre to say the least - unless you know the caste rules that is.
