I don't know what it is but everyone who plays on Thursday night never lives up to their match-up potential. I picked up Donald Jones. Last 3 games this guy has been averagaging 15pts in my league. Last night against one of the worst pass defensive's in the league...3 focking pts!
However, I did like what I saw in the redzone. Fitz went to him twice. Dude just dropped both passes. So I won't cut him but I will be pissed if I lose this weekend
That's not quite accurate.
One pass was at the five, an off-target fast ball. Even if he had caught it, he wouldn't have scored on the play.
The other one was a tough catch under heavy defensive coverage. He could have caught it, yes, but I wouldn't consider it a drop.
As for Thursday Night Football, it's a pathetic joke. I saw something on the ESPN scroll (great company, by the way, ESPN) about Goodell reiterating his position about eliminating some exhibition games because, "It just does not meet the standard of quality that the NFL is all about."
Really? And these awful TNF games do meet that standard?
What a hypocrite.
