KB: In or out of Pro Bowl?

22 October 2014 - 05:42 PM

Everyone's favorite analyst...and by favorite I mean he's the worst the NFL has ever had...Charles Davis discusses KB's shot of making the Pro Bowl.  Now, I'm not saying he necessarily should, but Davis' argument for why he won't is completely destroyed by the last few seconds of the video.  Davis says "to make the PB as a rookie your numbers have to be so gaudy that they can't not let you in."  And the video ends with the other guy saying KB is on track to have the most yards by a rookie WR since 2004 (I'm guessing Boldin).  I think it goes without saying that his TDs are on track to be the most in a long time too.  Well, AJ Green was a rookie Pro Bowl WR and if KB's numbers are on track to surpass Green's then that undermines Davis' reason for KB not making it.  If anything, what keeps KB out of the Pro Bowl will be the overall team's lack of success this year (barring a miraculous turnaround and strong last 9 game stretch).


Most underrated players deserving a Pro Bowl nod

4. Greg Olsen, Carolina Panthers tight end: With a rookie (Kelvin Benjamin) as his best receiver, Cam Newton is relying heavily on Olsen to carry the aerial attack this year. Never included with the former hoopsters regarded as the most dynamic athletes at the position, Olsen leads all tight ends in yards and yards after the catch. He's also Newton's favorite end-zone target, notching five touchdowns. A case can be made that Martellus Bennett and Delanie Walker are just as deserving at tight end.

 

When I clicked the link I was thinking "If Olsen isn't mentioned, this belongs on BleacherReport instead of NFL.com."  Thankfully they didn't let me down.  Interesting stat is that Olsen leads all TEs in YAC.  Yes, yards after the catch.


Start 'em, Sit 'em for Week 8

22 October 2014 - 02:06 PM

Even though we're being picked by everyone to lose, I thought it was at least mildly interesting we have so many on the Start 'em side of the coin in this week's article. From all fantasy positions Cam and Olsen get "Start 'em"s with Olsen being the Start of the Week and KB gets what equates to an honorable mention.  Carolina Defense gets a Sit'em with Stewart getting a dishonorable mention (who in their right mind would be playing Stewart anyway?!).  On the flip side of the coin the Seahawks have Russell Wilson as the Start of the Week and Doug Baldwin getting a Start'em.

 

Obviously this has little impact on the actual outcome of the game, but strictly from a fantasy perspective it would seem they're expecting a pretty even contest.


Flea flicker to Cotchery

Well since the other thread on this went away while I was typing my response, here it is heh.

 

Anyone who questions Shula's incompetency as an OC need only reference this play.  If he looks like a shitty OC, talks like a shitty OC, calls shitty games like a shitty OC, he's a shitty OC.  There is no credible defense for his continued employment.  I told my Bucs friend before that last drive, no huddle time taking Shula out of the equation.  We might finally score.  If not for ludicrous clock management (seriously, timeout before the 3rd and 1 then time out after?  Why not just hurry up the QB sneak and use only 1 timeout?!) we would have had a TD.


NFC Offensive POW

15 October 2014 - 12:32 PM

So rather than Cam's Herculean effort against Cincinnati, the NFC OPOW goes to an OL...I mean, I'm all for recognizing OL for good play but there's no way that guy's game or impact was nearly as huge as Cam's almost 400 yards 3 TDs in the best game of the season yet, while injured and getting ankles twisted and whathaveyou.  This is ridiculous.  I know they don't mean anything, but still.  It's a matter of pride.  Most of us want to see our guys recognized when they deserve it and no way Tyron Smith deserves it over Cam this week.
