Football FYI'S
« on: October 09, 2018, 08:47:57 AM »
:reporter; .....  Football FYI'S

 Too many kickers looking like college kickers:

Why are professional kickers suddenly looking like the kids who play on Saturdays, you know, the ones who can't be depended upon to hit even the easiest of kicks? Veteran Mason Crosby was the latest kicker to have an absolutely brutal day as he missed four field goals and an extra point in Green Bay's loss to the Lions on Sunday. The Vikings and Browns (who won Sunday courtesy of one of the ugliest field goals that you'll ever) have already ditched the kickers they started the season with, which says a lot about the state of kickers this early in the season.

 Roughing the passer calls:

A new rule designed to protect quarterbacks has led to a number of embarrassing calls by refs this season and has infuriated both players and coaches. Clay Matthews called the league "soft" after being the victim of two brutal calls in back-to-back weeks and J.J. Watt yesterday wondered what his brother, T.J. Watt, did to deserve such a call in the Steelers win over the Falcons in Week 5. Hopefully this gets cleared up as the season progresses, because right now it's awful.

Case Keenum:

The Broncos signed Keenum to a big deal in the offseason thinking he was the missing piece that could lead them back to their winning ways. But the QB has gotten off to a slow start and has thrown just two TD passes (both last Sunday in a loss to the Jets) in the last four games and has more INTs (7) than TDs (5). The Broncos are 2-3, have lost three straight, and host the red-hot Rams in Week 6.

 Le'Veon Bell:

We all knew Bell would likely hold out all of training camp but we never expected his hold out would still be going on five weeks into the season. One of the best running backs in the league is trying to save his body for a big contract after the season and has been driving Steelers fans, as well as some players - nuts by not playing a single down yet. It will be interesting to see just what happens with Bell for the rest of the season.

Bears - QB Mitch Trubisky:

Trubisky lit up the Bucs with six passing TDs in three quarters.


Lions - WR Kenny Golladay:

Golladay has emerged as a reliable weapon for Matt Stafford, averaging 8 receptions per game.

Vikings - CB Mike Hughes:

The rookie CB has also been valuable as a kick returner.

He is losing more money by not playing than he will be able to make up in the future.  And he isn't helping anyone around him neither.

He has to return to playing by week 7 or 8 or else he doesn't get service time for this year, which means he won't be a free agent next year, which means he won't get the contract he so badly wants.  And hell, by the standards of professional sports these days, he probably deserves it; one freak play and his career is over without being paid to the level at which he has performed.

When he does come back, it will be interesting to see how hard he plays or if he comes up with some other injury that puts him back on the sidelines for a few more weeks; a hamstring seems to be a convenient malady for someone who isn't in game shape.

Still, I'm happy to see the Vikes paying guys like Hunter, and Diggs, and next year (hopefully) Thielen - guys who work hard all the time - instead of the likes of Bell and Odell Beckham, who seem to put their own interests above the team.

I get it.  These guys want to get paid, but this is a team game.  To me it don't matter how many highlight reels you make if your team isn't winning.  Everyone is different, but I root for a team - not the Odell Beckham Jr. or Le'Veon Bell "brand."
