Totally agree. He’s just good man.

yep, rookie mistake

Thursday came and started the classic overthinking/"I want to make the Thursday game interesting"

It was only interesting for my opponent. :D

Need to pin this to the top of the forum - it's one of the most elementary but useful FFL rules that everyone should follow.

Probably a week too early because next week vs the Bengals looks nice.

Oh well.


Thankfully SeaOtter was able to talk some sense into me not picking him up.

I had Cole in my lineup and got him out just before kickoff.
That turned out well, but now I'm probably throwing a Monday Night dart with Miles Boykin.

I wouldn't expect Howard's GL work to go anywhere. Half of his rushes (8 of 16) have been inside the 5 yard line and he's converted both 3rd and goal opportunities that have been given to him (2 of his 3 TDs).

I'm not a Howard fan by any means (I am a Dolphins fan though) but he has been doing his job well. Between him and Fitz's ability to get into the end zone I don't really see any reason for Gaskin to be used at the goal line.

Fair. I actually don't know that a lot is set in stone in the offense generally speaking (especially with everyone knowing that Fitz's tenure is just temporary anyway). Just tempering expectations. Red Zone offense hasn't been bad by any means.
