Lewis and Webb. Both are major losses.

It's mine. I use the beat the insiders records and somehow they are off on the season totals by a game. Fixed

I do agree that the Broncos team the Texans played is a different team now but the Ravens actually had a very good record when Lewis went out last time. I still think Texans and Falcons both haven't had a real test aside from GB whipping the Texans. Falcons slip by a couple of really bad teams and they call it finding a way to win. That's fine but they will be tested in the playoffs then we will see if they deserve the respect they are screaming for because of a regular season record.

Lewis' loss was more about a loss in leadership on the field. The loss of Webb was a bigger factor. The drop off behind webb was much larger than the drop off behind Lewis. Webb was a very good CB and his loss deeply weakens their secondary. With Suggs having to take it slow, Ngata banged up, Lewis and Webb out, that's just a lot to overcome.

The reason that the thursday night games this year suck is that the NFL promised every team a primetime game this year. Sunday and Monday night games are HUGE pulls and have contracts with ABC and NBC that require "good games" to be played. ABC and NBC aren't going to give time slots to games that are dumpster bowls. I'm actually kind of surprised that the Chiefs are playing in a Monday Night game. I suspect it's because they are playing the steelers who have the largest fan base of any team. But anyways...the crappy team's primetime games have to go somewhere. So thursday night it is. Face it. Only moderate to enthusiastic NFL watchers even watch the NFL channel because it's rarely part of the basic cable package...so you have to request it and pay more money to get it. They can put crappy teams on the thursday night games because they know the football fans are going to watch football regardless of the team.

Steelers/Chiefs isn't a dumpster bowl?

Edit: nevermind, I stopped reading your post, posted this, then read the rest.

All good...we've been neck and neck for weeks now. It will be interesting to see who comes out ahead at season's end.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 7, 2012 12:39:03 PM PST
Yeah it will be interesting. I'm not having as good of a year this year as I did the previous two. I was at 69% this time last year but this year i'm barely at 60. This year has been particularly difficult to predict as there are only a handful of dominant teams and bottom of the barrel teams. There are a larger portion of teams this year in the "average" range than normal.

SMH says:
I think both of us have had at least one 4-12 type week that pulled our season down quite a bit. I have no idea how I'm doing year over year at this point. Last year I didn't keep track.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 8, 2012 5:32:19 AM PST
I've had a couple. I know I had one week where I only got 2 or 3 right and another 4-12 week. It's been a lot of feast or famine for me this year.

Colts will crush the Jags tonight is my prediction, although if you think about it the Jags only win came from the Colts, so can they do it again?

Posted on Nov 9, 2012 5:36:31 AM PST
Colts did indeed crush them. Jags are going to have to do something major to turn this team around in the next few years. I don't think Gabbert is necessarily the problem either. Look at that WR corps...I don't even think Manning, Brees, or Brady could do anything with that. Their #1 weapon is hurt. Just a bad time to be a jags fan.

It warms my heart on this cold morning that so many people are picking da Bears!!

I think they need to move the team. A fresh start would be good.

I normally would say that moving a team is detrimental to the team but being in the Jacksonville market is killing their ticket sales. Of course having an awful team is also killing their ticket sales. They need to make a larger FA splash this offseason and stock up on some offensive playmakers. Personally, if it were me, I'd trade MJD, stick with Gabbert one more year, sign some FA WR's like Dwayne Bowe and/or Mike Wallace, pick up a veteran RB and draft another RB in the 3rd round or so. Maybe sign another TE like Cook and replenish that D in the draft. That way next year Gabbert doesn't have any excuse for sucking. If he still sucks then the next year draft a QB.

But hey that's me. And that's why I'm a biostatistical research analyst and not an NFL GM

The need an O-line.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 9, 2012 6:14:15 AM PST
Ahh wasn't aware. Well there are plenty of FA's out there that can plug a hole or two until you get some more draft capital to spend.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 9, 2012 6:16:35 AM PST
M. Stifler says:
Yeah, every analyst says Gabbert looks skiddish and scared to get hit, that's what happens when your o-line sucks. Look what happened to David Carr when he was with Houston.
