    1. @Jumbo, Franz Kafka from The Existentialist Gazette First off, congratulations on a fantastic class! Talk a little bit about your three big defensive linemen in this class and how you see them competing for starting jobs next season.
    2. Franz Kafka, Time is a Flat Circle Magazine Coach @smckenz3, replacing MoFo is no easy task - what about Lake's game makes you confident that he can step in immediately and lead this offense? What areas does he need to improve?

    4. As we approach the final quarter of the season, it's time to take note of how each team is faring relative to their fanbase's preseason expectations. Who is on the hot seat? Which franchise has their city beaming with pride about their 2021 campaign? Let's take a look. NFC West Expectations: Low (4-6 Wins) - More than six wins and the fans would be ecstatic - Fewer than four wins would result in a call for the firing of the Head Coach Current record: 4-8 The Cardinals have met the low bar set by their fanbase. They've guaranteed at least the status quo from last year's 4-11-1 season with hopes to finish 6-10. They've been hit hard by the injury bug, losing three wide receivers for at least two games this season (and losing two for the season). Based on the strength of the NFC this season, fans can't be too upset with the franchise this season. Notable injuries: WR Eli Austin 6-5 217 1 Tennessee [Target] 83 - Severe ACL Rupture (Week 3) Out for season FS Reggie Beasley 5-10 207 6 Washington [Man Coverage] 83 - Severe Achilles Rupture (Week 6) Out for season WR Art Baber 5-9 201 6 Auburn [Speed] 81 – Severe Achilles Rupture (Week 13) Out for season. Expectations: Low (3-5 Wins) - Although the fans’ expectations are low this season, they understand this was a rebuilding year. Current record: 3-9 Seattle has three wins so far this season, precisely where the fanbase expected them to be. Although their postseason dreams ended many weeks ago, fans understand the process and seem pleased with the hiring of new coach Jieret. All in all, a year that will be quickly forgotten by the team and fans. On to 2022. Notable injuries: ILB Malcolm Douglas-Scott 6-0 239 5 Angelina College [Will] 97 – Moderate Back Disc Tear (Week 8) Out for three games, questionable for one. TE Tony Huff 6-4 225 4 Georgia [Receiving] 87 – Moderate Wrist Fracture (Week 3) Out for six games. OLB Kristian Little 6-0 237 2 Alabama [Blitz] 83 – Moderate Groin Tear (Week 6) Out for three games. SS Antonio Oliver 6-0 196 2 Houston [Man Coverage] 83 – Severe Toe Sprain (Week 7) Out for three games. FS Onome Smith 6-1 191 3 California [Man Coverage] 82 – Severe ACL Rupture (Week 3) Out for season. Expectations: Contender (11-13 Wins) - Fans consider a postseason berth a must and many expect an NFCCG game appearance this season. - Worse than 8-8 would cause disgust among the fans Current record: 10-2 The Rams appear to be headed for a first round bye in the playoffs as they’re clearly one of the two best teams in the NFC through 12 games. The midseason acquisition of Chad Dess could be enough to send them to the NFC title game for the first time since 2015. What makes the Rams' success this season even more impressive is how they've come back from devastating injuries - five 80+ players have been lost to season-ending injuries and another pair gone for a combined 13 games. Notable injuries: TE Jamal Hawkins 6-4 247 6 Arizona State [Receiving] 89 – Severe ACL Tear (Week 2) Out for season. OT Nijrell Smith 6-4 346 5 Miami [Pass Blocking] 88 – Severe Back Disc Tear (Week 3) Out for five games.DE Michael Bruce 6-8 252 2 Texas Tech [Blitz] 85 – Severe ACL tear (Week 8) Out for season. FS Oronde Jackson 5-10 173 3 Air Force [Zone Coverage] 85 – Severe Hamstring Rupture (Week 2) Out for season WR Derrick Schwartz 6-0 155 3 Kentucky [Speed] 85 – Severe Quadriceps Tear (Week 2) Out for eight games. OT August Gilliland 6-1 282 3 TCU [Run Blocking] 82 – Severe Hamstring Rupture (Week 6) Out for season. RB Frederick Chacon 6-0 172 3 Air Force [Power] 80 – Severe Achilles Rupture (Week 8) Out for season. Expectations: High (9-11 Wins) - Fans are hopeful for a wildcard berth and at least four division wins. - The fanbase will not doubt the organization any time soon after their recent postseason successes. Current record: 3-9 The 49ers have only had two season-ending injuries this season, but both were to key players. While the fanbase won’t be soon to grumble about the organization, it is a disappointing campaign. It’s the team’s first losing season since 2016 and follows up a 37-16 overall record the last three years. Notable injuries: WR Jarius Shaw-Dodd 5-11 213 3 Virginia Tech [Speed] 89 – Severe Hamstring Rupture (Week 5) Out for season. DT Michael McBride 6-4 313 1 Pittsburgh [2-Gap] 81 – Severe Achilles Rupture (Week 3) Out for season. NFC East Expectations: High (Expecting 10-12 Wins) - Fans are expecting at least a split against the Cowboys - Fans also expect a Divisional Round playoff game Current record: 9-3 The Philadelphia Eagles are one of the top teams in the NFC and are currently in line for a home game in the postseason. They’ve completed the split against the Cowboys and unless they collapse over their final four games, fans should be pleased headed into the playoffs. Losing phenom Martin Whiting was a big blow to the defense, but Philadelphia is in a great position heading into the final four games. Notable injuries: OLB Martin Whiting 6-3 235 1 North Carolina [Coverage] 85 – Severe Achilles Rupture (Week 8) Out for season. WR Cameron Whelahan 6-4 211 3 Arkansas [Target] 82 – Severe Calf Tear (Week 10) Out for four games. FS Kevin Hartley 6-0 157 3 Ole Miss [Zone Coverage] 81 – Moderate Elbow Fracture (Week 13) Out for four games. CB Tim Kassell 5-11 191 5 UCLA [Man Coverage] 80 – Severe PCL Tear (Week 4) Out for season. Expectations: High (Expecting 10-12 Wins) - Fans are clamoring for a Division title or at least five division wins. - Fans also expect to be in the hunt for the NFC title. Current record: 8-4 The Cowboys are currently one game back in the NFC East race and will be favored in their two remaining divisional games. If the season ended today, they would be in the playoffs and should hit the 10-win bar set by their fanbase. They’ve stayed relatively injury free, only adding to the expectations in Dallas. Notable injuries: TE Erasmus High 6-0 217 2 Alabama [Blocking] 85 – Severe Achilles Rupture (Week 11) Out for season. Expectations: Low (Expecting 4-6 Wins) - Fans understand this is a transitional year and most would view five-plus wins as a successful season. Current record: 7-5 Washington is one of the most overachieving teams in all of football this season. With a rookie quarterback, many expected a rocky road in hopes of merely fielding a competitive team. Bowman & Co. , however, have the team squarely in the playoff hunt. What started out as a throwaway transitional year has turned into one of the most exciting storylines in the league. Notable injuries: OLB Craig Davis 6-1 221 5 Syracuse [Blitz] 83 – Severe Achilles Rupture (Week 7) Out for season. RB Ricardo Reed 5-9 201 2 Connecticut [Power] 82 – Severe ACL Rupture (Week 12) Out for season. Expectations: Very Low (2-4 Wins) - The fanbase understands this is a rebuilding year and expectations are just north of zero. - If the team wins two games or fewer, however, they expect the coach to be fired. Current record: 1-11 There is trouble in New York. The fans’ expectations were low, but they didn’t think their beloved Giants would go 1-15, which is now a real possibility. The G-Men are currently 1-11 and finish their season with New Orleans and Dallas at home and trips to Las Vegas and Philadelphia. They will be underdogs in all four and believer likely needs a miracle to keep his job. Notable injuries: WR William Anderson 6-3 207 1 Alabama [Target] 81 – Severe Achilles Rupture (Training Camp) Out for season. RB Josh Shiancoe 6-2 221 2 UCLA [Power] 81 – Severe Meniscus Bruise (Preseason One) Out for seven games.
