  1. Good game NE. There's only so much heartbreak I can take in one day.
  2. That's the goal - I enjoy writing it..
  3. Raheem can catch, throw, and run, is there anything he can not do? Wow – what an opening week to the NFLHC season. We had clutch overtime plays from Nick Hall and Todd Lester to lead their respective teams to victories. Soluna deployed trick plays in a thrashing of the Chiefs, the Chargers shocked everyone, and the Jets showed the league they won’t settle for just appearing in Super Bowls. The committee of Smackems was able to open up the season with a tidy 11-4 record, 12-4 if you include Jumanji’s correct Dolphin prediction. Week 2’s Smackems’ Game of the Week is the Eagles and their stout defense taking on the Panthers and their high-flying offense. This game offers such a stark contrast in styles that it really should be a beauty to watch. Once again, the winner will be bolded in white. On to the picks! Miami Dolphins (1-0) at New England Patriots (0-1) The Patriots are coming off an embarrassing Week 1 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers. Unfortunately for them, their competition can only get tougher from there. Thursday night, they will be taking on the 1-0 Dolphins. Miami will look to repeat last week's dominant performance, as they destroyed the Buffalo Bills by a score of 36-7. Already firing on all cylinders, Brian Brown and company should have the edge. While the Patriots have the potential to pull an upset, there are just too many question marks surrounding their defense after last week's abysmal showing. The Dolphins take this one. courtesy of Jumanji New York Jets (1-0) at Buffalo Bills (0-1) – The Jets opened up the season with a bang by drubbing the Ravens 31-14. The score was never close as Wegert lead the Jets to a 31-0 lead before Baltimore added points in garbage time. Buffalo traveled to Miami and was not able to get pressure with their star-studded defensive line in a 36-7 loss to the Dolphins. I think the Jets are the best team in the division, I think week one’s decimation of a really good Baltimore defense shows that to be true in the early going. Buffalo has a shot if their defensive line can put pressure on Wegert and force him to make mistakes, I think they will get pressure but I do not think it will be enough. I think the Jets take this one in Buffalo. Cleveland Browns (0-1) at New Orleans Saints (0-1) The Browns opened up the season with a chance to beat Tennessee on a last-second FG that sailed wide left. The Saints on the other hand were never in it as Christian Skaggs tore apart their questionable secondary 48-21 in Charlotte. The game is an interesting one to choose, I think looking at it quickly I would go New Orleans, however; if I look a little more closely at Cleveland’s roster I think they have enough pieces to exploit the weaknesses in the Saints secondary. I think Tai, Marconi, and Mitchell provide just enough firepower to give Cleveland a puncher’s chance of scoring with New Orleans – I think Sean Jenkins comes back this week with a monster game, but I am picking Cleveland in the upset. Cincinnati Bengals (1-0) at Baltimore Ravens (0-1) The Bengals were able to travel to Atlanta and get the upset in week 1, but it did not come the way anyone expected it to come. The defense, highly considered the weakest part of the Bengals, was able to bend but not break and hold Atlanta to only 13 points. King did not have a spectacular opener with all his new toys, only having 209 yards and 2 picks to go along with his 2 TDs. The Bengals have a lot of balance, but I believe that Baltimore’s defense is one of the better units in the league, and they will be looking to bounce back from an awful performance in week 1. I think King is going to struggle, and I think the Ravens should be able to put enough points on the board to win their home opener. Jacksonville Jaguars (1-0) at Pittsburgh Steelers (1-0) The most talked about game from week 1 has to be the Jaguars drubbing of the Chiefs, where Raheem Robinson, and all his trick play glory, rushed and passed for a Touchdown to go with his 4 catches. The Steelers got a nice victory over Tampa, where Davenport had a super-efficient game through the air completing ~78% of his passes. I love the intrigue this game brings, Davenport has been on fire ever since panther gave him the reins last season, he adds a dynamic level to the Steelers offense, but Soluna is putting together a team in Jacksonville that’s going to be so difficult to plan against every week. He has trick plays in the bag now, and he’s going to be able to pull It out when teams aren’t expecting it especially with Josh McDaniels as his OC. I think Pittsburgh is moving in the right direction, but I think Jacksonville is moving there more quickly Indianapolis Colts (0-1) at Green Bay Packers (1-0) The Packers had a nice opening week win over Arizona and inspiral has to be excited about the play of both the defense and the offensive line. However, this week they face a significantly tougher challenge in the Colts, who lost an OT heartbreaker to the Raiders. I think the Colts are considered by many to be one of the favorites to potentially represent the AFC in the Super Bowl, especially if they can get their running game going. Peaks didn’t have a great game last week, but Heard was able to break off a big run for a touchdown to alleviate some of the pressure off of Aaron Shea. I still really like the Colts and I think they will go into Green Bay and get the victory here. The Packers are on an upswing, but I don’t think they are ready to take down championship caliber teams yet. Los Angeles Chargers (1-0) at Tennessee Titans (1-0) The Chargers opened up the season with a surprising win over the Patriots while the Titans were able to hold on with a victory over Cleveland. The Chargers used a really strong 4th quarter from Will Thompson to get the upset, I think Thompson helps the Chargers win now but I think they are still at a talent disadvantage. I also think Tennessee is a better team than last year’s record indicates with strong contributors at key positions on offense and young talent on defense. I like the Woods and Jones combo on the line – I think it’s too much for the Chargers to overcome… *Philadelphia Eagles (1-0) at Carolina Panthers (1-0) It was a toss-up between this game and the 9ers/Broncos game for the Smackems’ Game of the Week, but I went with this one. The Eagles struggled on offense in week 1, but their defense, specifically their secondary gave the Redskins fits all game forcing Fields to throw 3 interceptions. In fact, the only touchdown scored by the Skins came on a kickoff return for a TD in the 3rd quarter. It’s no secret that the Panthers decimated the Saints secondary, Skaggs was able to toss a neat 6 TDs in their week 1 victory. The Panthers will be able to score, that should be a given, so I think the key to this game is going to be how the Eagles offense responds? I think the Eagles end the season with their offense clicking, but I think the Panthers take this game. Their offense is already firing on all-cylinders and their defense played pretty well against a potent Saints offense. Atlanta Falcons (0-1) at Chicago Bears (0-1) Both of these teams struggled to put points in the board in their week 1 losses. Chicago can point directly at their abysmal running effort as the main culprit in their shutout, Honeycutt was only able to muster 14 yards on 11 carries and that’s just not going to get it done. Atlanta seemed to be able to move the ball against Cincinnati but would too often settle for FG attempts as they got into Bengal territory. I think Atlanta looked like they were a little closer to figuring it out during the 1st week, they were able to move the ball, they had good rushing numbers, I will take them in a road win. Houston Texans (1-0) at Detroit Lions (1-0) Detroit was able to pummel the helpless Vikings in a game where Rob LeCount had little issue getting the ball out to his receivers. One potentially concerning takeaway from their week 1 victory is that James Otero was never able to get going and barely broke 2 YPC on 17 carries, that’s not going to get it done long term. The Texans came out of the gate and made a defensive statement as I discussed in the Chicago preview, they held Honeycutt to around 1 YPC and were able to snag 2 Brooksheer passes as well. Leshoure had a nice game, but the question is how will he do when one of the best CBs in the league is blanketing his best target? The Houston rushing attack didn’t perform well enough to give me confidence that Houston can steal this one, I’m going Detroit here. Oakland Raiders (1-0) at Kansas City Chiefs (0-1) Nick Hall and the Raiders had a clutch performance in their victory over the Colts. Hall looked as good as always and rookie defensive end Shah Vereen came in right away and got a sack in his first action. As good, as Oakland was last year they really struggled to get after the quarterback, so if Vereen is able to consistently get pressure on the QB watch out. By now, everyone knows that Kansas City lost to trick-plays, but I think there’s some deeper issues here. Rodgers had an okay game, but how much of that was because of the defensive game plan? They had issues stopping the run and pass – I think they’ll get it figured out eventually but trying to get it turned around against one of the best teams in the league is not ideal. I’m taking Oakland. Dallas Cowboys (1-0) at Washington Redskins (0-1) Dallas looked great in their opening victory over the Giants; Vaughan Abraham thrashed the Giant defense for over 120 yards and ~6 YPC. The Skins really struggled on offense, and as of today it’s uncertain how healthy Javier Fields will be going into this game, if he plays at all. Both defenses played well in their opening games, but with the uncertainty surrounding Fields’ status for the game I am going to take Dallas to open up the season 2-0. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-1) at Minnesota Vikings (0-1) I’m struggling to find any positives for the Vikings after their week 1 loss. Their running game looked bad, Vardell had an inefficient game through the air, and their defense and special teams were outclassed by the Lions. Tampa at least is able to hold their hat on Heiden and Richard Wilson’s performance against Pittsburgh, both were able to play well in an otherwise fairly lopsided affair. I’m taking Tampa in this one – they have more talent. Seattle Seahawks (0-1) at Arizona Cardinals (0-1) Even though Seattle lost the opener to Denver, Coach Tuscan has to be proud of the way the defense played in that game. They held the Broncos to 15 points and did a good job of making life difficult for new QB Todd Jennings and RB J.B. Blacknall. There is a lot of talent on this offense, so I have no doubt that they will get that side of the ball figured out. Arizona really struggled to find any traction in their loss at Green Bay, they were inefficient in the running game and that made it difficult for Kareem to find any rhythm in the passing game. Based on the way Seattle looked in week 1 I think they make strides on the offensive side of the ball and take the victory. New York Giants (0-1) at Los Angeles Rams (0-1) The Rams took the defending Super Bowl champs to overtime, they have to be pleased with the effort that their team was able to put forth in that game. They roll with backup Jeremy Henry for one more week; Henry had a pretty solid outing in week 1, but threw a costly pick that allowed San Fran to kick a game tying FG. The Giants have been trying to figure out their offense since the beginning of the preseason and still haven’t hit on a game plan that allows them to effectively score points. I think the Rams win this one and get to 1-1 with starter Darrell Murphy coming back next week. San Francisco 49ers (1-0) at Denver Broncos (1-0) This is another potentially great primetime game to match our awesome slate of primetime games from week 1. By now it’s no secret that I really love the Broncos, I think by the end of the year they are going to be in the discussion as one of the best teams in the league. Their defense is rock solid and I am betting that Bingo figures out the best way to utilize both his new QB and RB. They held one of the best WRs Gary Faneca to a total of 33 yards on 3 catches, and Charles Johnson exploded with 3 sacks. The 49ers played a great game in their opener against the Rams, the offense looked in mid-season form and the defense played opportunistic football that led them to an overtime victory. I like Lester’s ability to move around in this game, it should really help him when the Broncos send a blitz and give his bevy of speedsters a chance to get open. In an early season game, I’m definitely favoring San Francisco. Week 1 record – 11-4 Overall record – 11-4 Jumanji’s Week 1 record – 1-0 Jumanji’s Overall record – 1-0
  4. Bills Barry'd Marcus Barry, D.J. Gibson, and a stifling defensive effort lead to a 36-7 victory over the Buffalo Bills in Smackems' coaching debut
  5. Hey I did mention your new QB, Kevin Williams, and Tyler Jones! Ha
  6. Sorry - that was late night typing. I didn't actually mean you would get shut out, just that in general scoring will be difficult.
  7. The goal is for it to be weekly!
  8. Can Prince McGill lead the 49ers to victory in week 1? Welcome everyone to the first edition of the Smackems' NFLHC Predictorama. Each week I'm going to take a stab at predicting every non Miami Dolphins game. However, don't fret folks I've enrolled Super Bowl winning owner Jumanji to make our weekly Dolphins pick. I believe someone else did something like this last year, but hey the more the merrier right? More Media!!!! I'll designate the weekly "Smackems Game of the Week" with a star, this game is the cream of the crop that week and should be a downright dooooozy. This also might be a little obvious, but just in case ya missed it, the predicted winning team will be bolded in white. Without further adieu let's get to pickin'!! Los Angeles Rams (0-0) at San Francisco 49ers (0-0) - The Super Bowl Champs start our 2020 NFLHC season with a familiar foe the Los Angeles Rams. The 9ers and Rams squared off 3 times last year with San Fran getting 2 victories including a win in the playoffs. These are normally very evenly matched teams, but with Rams star QB Darrell Murphy out for the first few weeks of the season it becomes a tall order for backup Jeremy Henry to overcome. The safeties aren't rookies anymore and Pitt Panther star Michael McBride has been brought in to help the defensive line. The 49ers deliver the fans a victory on ring night. Buffalo Bills (0-0) at Miami Dolphins (0-0) - "This game hinges on how well the Dolphins' offensive line can contain their intimidating counterparts. It's no secret that the strength of the Buffalo Bills is their defensive line. Even while starting four rookies on defense, the Dolphins should be able to handle this Bills offense. While Dess has built up an impressive reputation, he's shown that he can't do it all on his own. The Bills did little to improve their passing game and, unless Brian Brown gets knocked out early, I don't see them winning this one." courtesy of Jumanji. Baltimore Ravens (0-0) at New York Jets (0-0) - The Jets have reached 2 straight super bowls but have yet to claim the title as they open up the season with the defending AFC North champion Baltimore Ravens. New York coach grv, fresh off his college national championship, looks to take a Jets team that is returning its whole team from the previous year to new heights. New outside linebacker Daquan Darcey looks to improve an already stellar defense. The Ravens bring one of the best defenses in the league, but with the loss of star Booker T. Washington, have a lot of questions on offense. I don't think the Ravens will be able to score and the Jets have enough firepower on offense to take this one pretty easily. Cleveland Browns (0-0) at Tennessee Titans (0-0) - What can you say about Tennessee? After a injury-riddled 2019 season the Titans look to rebound in 2020 with good health. They bring in former Seahawk Alexander Williams to lead the offensive charge with 2019 breakout player Kevin Williams. Highly touted rookie Tyler Jones will look to get after Browns QB Ryan Clark, but the Browns bring in 3 rookie starters on defense with the additions of C.J. Thomas, Cameron Marshall, and Gabriel Beauchamp. I like the the moves the Browns made in the off-season and I think they will be much improved this year, I'm taking them in a slight upset. Cincinnati Bengals (0-0) at Atlanta Falcons (0-0) - The Bengals are definitely the front runners for the splashiest off-season award. Ending the 2019 season with a historically bad offense they went out and added All-Pro wideout Rodney Montgomery and former college sensation Adrian Jankowski to shore up a really weak group of pass catchers. Ron Thomas is one of the best backs in the league so it falls on Joel King to take a big leap in season 2. Atlanta was cruising along last year until an injury to QB A.J. Jefferson derailed their playoff hopes. They bring in former Oregon standout Eric Jennings to pair with 2019 rookie Early Davis. Akili Wallace is hard to stop for anyone, but the Bengals' defense is pretty bad so look for him to run wild. They'll win some games with their offense, but this isn't one of them. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-0) at Pittsburgh Steelers (0-0) - A battle of former front office mates as rabid's Bucs take on panther's Steelers. The Steelers ended the 2019 season as one of the hottest teams in the league winning 6 out of their last 8 games after switching to Paul Davenport at QB. Chester Henson comes to town looking to add another level of dynamism to a team that sports a fairly decent defense on paper. The Bucs bring in new safety Aaron Blakely in one of the more odd draft stories of all time. I like the Steelers in this one, I think Davenport continues his roll and Henson makes them harder to game-plan for. New York Giants (0-0) at Dallas Cowboys (0-0) The Cowboys looks to rebound from a poor showing in 2019 and get Vaughan Abraham going. First round pick Graham Burnett looks to open the season as the 2nd string QB, but the Cowboys sport one of the best offensive lines in the league. The Giants sport one of the best defenses in the league, but don't have a lot of offensive fire-power outside of O.J Carano. I like the Cowboys in this one, I think it will be low scoring but they will pull it out. New Orleans Saints (0-0) at Carolina Panthers (0-0) - Both of these teams can put the ball in the end-zone, and I don't expect anything less in this game. However to say the Saints struggle on defense would be an understatement, but they are trending in the right direction with the addition of FA George Brady and rookie Corey Davis. Causter will coach them up, but it's a tall task to open the season in Charlotte against Christian Skaggs and his new toy Curtis Henry. The Panthers sport a pretty good defense as well and with the return of Mike Latta I expect even more fireworks on offense. I think the Saints will score, but I think the Panthers will score more and get a few stops.. Arizona Cardinals (0-0) at Green Bay Packers (0-0) - The Packers had arguably one of the best draft classes in the league to pair with their already excellent set of receivers. Ted is a great coach, but it's clear Arizona is in the midst of a full-scale rebuild. I don't know what else to say about this one except I think Green Bay wins big. New England Patriots (0-0) at Los Angeles Chargers (0-0) - The Patriots are fresh off an appearance in the 2019 playoffs and shored of both sides of the line with the drafting of Taylor Randolph and the acquisition of DT Rich Moore. An unfortunate injury to kicker Brad Weathersby puts them in a tough situation on special teams. I don't foresee it being an issue against the rebuilding Chargers who are in need of help at a lot of positions. Patriots win big. Chicago Bears (0-0) at Houston Texans (0-0) - Chicago made some big acquisitions this offseason adding Akeel Mitchell and Kevin Harris to their linebacking core. They also bring a high powered duo of wide receivers that should overwhelm the Houston CBs.. I think Rome is a good coach and their success this season depends on his ability to learn how to best utilize Alex Leshoure. I'm taking Chicago in this one - I like the additions they made. Denver Broncos (0-0) at Seattle Seahawks (0-0) - This has potential to be a great game. Seattle brings in new quarterback Jarius Jones to pair with Gary Faneca and new RB Booker T. Denver has their own set of new toys with Todd Jennings taking over the helm at QB and J.B. Blacknall taking over the feature back duties. I'm really high on Denver this year, I think they have a chance to unseat Oakland in the division. Seattle will make it tough but the Broncos pull it out. Washington Redskins (0-0) at Philadelphia Eagles (0-0) - The Redskins bring is stellar wideout Sam Hiller-Weeden, who's a guy I really hoped would fall to me at 19. Philly is the defending division champs and came oh so close to representing the NFC in the super bowl, but bring in rookie OLB Martin Whiting to add firepower to a solid defense. Washington will make a run at it, but I think Philly takes it. Detroit Lions (0-0) at Minnesota Vikings (0-0) - The Lions are perennial favorites each year and this year should be no different. They bring in Jeremy Cook and James Otero to add some firepower to that offense. Minnesota had a questionable off-season and brings in a brand-new coach to start the season. I think bellwood ends up being a good coach, but opening up with the best team in your division is no fun. Lions win this one handily. Kansas City Chiefs (0-0) at Jacksonville Jaguars (0-0) - We're now in year 2 of the Soluna rebuild in Jacksonville, and he was able to snag superstar WR Raheem Robinson. Asante Sowell had a stellar rookie campaign and should find even more holes now with a playmaker like Raheem on the outside. Kansas City had a great year last year, but then traded their best CB and his replacement immediately tore his ACL. Kansas City also loses their head coach from their playoff campaign. I think they'll be fine, but expect Jacksonville to win this one. *Indianapolis Colts (0-0) at Oakland Raiders (0-0) - The Smackems' game of the week features two AFC powerhouses in the Colts and Raiders. The Raiders got off to a sensational start last season before an unfortunate series of running back injuries really hurt their chances to go all the way. The Colts hope that Tony Peaks's return will bring some balance to their pass heavy offense last year. This game features 2 of the best QBs in the league each sporting a great set of weapons to throw the ball too. I like Oakland in this one - I think the home crowd will help them pull it out. .
  9. Random question for future clarification. If your captain is going to miss a game due to injury, should you select a different one?
  10. This is really good work! Can't wait to see the next one in the series.
  11. Great write-up as usual storm.. Looking forward to the 2020 season.
  12. You probably should have only ordered 100. Tampa being the 3rd best team in Florida, I imagine only 75 or so will show up in Bucs gear.
  13. Option A: The Dolphins organization takes this matter very seriously. We think the best course of action is to sit Michael out during our pre-season game against Tampa Bay while we gather more information about this issue. We haven't gathered all the facts, but we feel this is the proper course of action until we do gather those facts. Regardless of the outcome we will work with Michael to ensure he makes a smooth transition to the NFL.
  14. I'd love to be 5'9" 146.
