  1. The committee has had a pretty busy this week so we will only predict the winners. I know everyone is sad they won't get to see the usual in-depth analysis, but fret not we will be back next week with all the juicy details.. Here's the picks! Thursday, April 27th 2017 8:00 pm EST Denver Broncos (3-2) at Los Angeles Chargers (1-3) - Broncos use the motivation from their hiccup last week to crush the Chargers. Sunday, April 30th 2017 1:00 pm EST Oakland Raiders (2-2) at New England Patriots (2-3) - The Pats seem to be figuring things out and they are at home. Tennessee Titans (2-3) at Buffalo Bills (1-4) - Buffalo's pass-rush should crush an inconsistent Tennessee line. Cleveland Browns (2-2) at Cincinnati Bengals (3-2) - I'm so happy to see Jank ballin' out. He's too much for Cleveland to handle. Jacksonville Jaguars (4-1) at Baltimore Ravens (2-3) - Baltimore is playing better as of late but Jacksonville still takes the win. Carolina Panthers (5-0) at Pittsburgh Steelers (2-3) - After Shea's performance last week, Skaggs can hardly contain his excitement to play Pittsburgh. San Francisco 49ers (3-1) at Philadelphia Eagles (2-2) - Arizona beat both of these teams... San Fran is still the champs so I'm taking them.. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-5) at New Orleans Saints (0-5) - I guess I'll take the home team? I feel like Tampa is making too many changes too quickly. 4:00 pm EST Miami Dolphins (4-1) at Dallas Cowboys (4-1) - Jumanji picks the home team. Houston Texans (3-2) at Indianapolis Colts (1-3) - Harden might be the answer on the ground the Colts are looking for. If they find balance - watch out. Washington Redskins (1-3-1) at Seattle Seahawks (3-2) - Seattle is improving every week! Detroit Lions (4-1) at Green Bay Packers (5-0) - As well as Green Bay has played Detroit will be their biggest test yet. Detroit's D is the best GB has faced and wins them the game. Arizona Cardinals (2-2-1) at Los Angeles Rams (4-1) - I'd be lying if I said I understood the Cards... 8:00 pm EST New York Jets (3-1) at New York Giants (1-3) - Jets win the battle of New York. Monday, May 1st, 2017 8:00 pm EST Atlanta Falcons (4-1) at Minnesota Vikings (1-4) - If Minnesota tries to throw it 50 times on Atlanta's secondary that is going to end in disaster.
  2. To be fair - I did pick you to beat Denver.
  3. I like this idea - I think it still gives an slight advantage to home state schools, but can really help to even the playing field for schools in states that don't produce a lot of recruits. West Virginia as a state doesn't produce a lot of recruits, that's a given, but WVU doesn't have an issue recruiting. Edit - Also I think it'd be cool to see an increase in the number of JuCo players. WVU brings in a lot of JuCo players each year and with the current number of JuCos that isn't really possible. I don't think they necessarily all have to be these great players, but adding some additional 3.5 potential players or something like that would give coaches the ability to utilize some different strategies. A 3.5 potential player represents a contributing/starter level player on almost every team so I think adding some additional guys that level would add additional strategy.

  5. Depth Chart and Spring Game Depth Chart updated. West Virginia would like to welcome OLB Julian Nolan 6-3 240 (Sr) Patrick Henry (Ashland VA) 3.5 of 3.5 [Coverage] to join us in our quest for the 2020 Championship.
  6. The most prolific passing quarterback in CFBHC history... Matty Swift. I was at a happy hour with vtgorilla and he was telling me about the site. I was immediately interested in joining and lucky enough for me Texas A&M was available. Who cares that they were 0-8, they had a good quarterback and his name was Matty Swift. How can you not immediately root for a guy named Matty Swift? The first game I coached was against Fresno State and it was an epic shootout... Two things about that game stick out. Matty Swift, TAMU, 38 of 53 for 489 yards, 4 TD, 1 INT Adrian Jankowski, TAMU, 15 for 277 yards, 2 TD - The fist thing is just the statline that Matty and Jank put up in that game.. holy crap Justin Nielsen, missed 44 yd FG - 0:02 (TAMU) - BLOCKED - Justin Nielsen only missed 1 FG in the 17 games I coached him, and it was the very first one he took.. Would have tied the game. Anyways I finished the season 3-1 in the 4 games I coached to bring the Aggies to 3-9 for the year.. Matty was so much fun to coach and I was immediately hooked on the site. The 2018 season was Matty's senior year and I wanted to go all in and get him a Heisman. I mean the dude ends up being the career passing leader and he had a coach for not even half of his career. I created a fake Heisman website for his campaign that included a link to some pre-created Matty Swift for Heisman shirts people could order. Unfortunately no one ever bought a shirt I probably should have mailed them to each Heisman voter. The Aggies ended up with one of the hardest schedules in the country playing Ohio State, Alabama, Auburn who all made the final 4 that year. We had Jank, but people forget that our 2nd WR was a 3/3, our slot was a 2.5/2.5 and our TE was a 3.5/3.5. Matty got that 2.5/2.5 WR a 150 yard 2 TD day against Oregon. There just wasn't a lot of talent on that team, but Matty put up a crazy 4,453 yard with 36 TDs and 6 Int season. Jaz Durant ended up winning the Heisman, which was fine, but Alex Leshoure got more Heisman votes and won the QB of the year award. Matty put up better numbers on a much worse team, I was pretty bummed about it all - I had let Matty down. I wanted to send Matty out with a bowl win, but alas @inspiral won the trash talk championship sending all the Matty for Heisman shirts to those in need. Matty has a great game against Purdue, but Purdue scored more points and that's that. Everyone knows how the story goes.. Matty slipped to the second round and was taken by the Chargers... Each day he sits on the bench makes me cry on the inside. Matty is still my favorite player on this site..
  7. Houston, We Have a Problem Willie Davis continues to be only Dolphins' receiver making an impact Brian Brown looks on after a 2nd quarter interception.
  8. Christian Skaggs and the Panthers on fire. Week 4 is in the books and the Predictorama saw a little bit of improvement from a miserable week 3 performance. Denver showed flashes of a great offense, Chicago and Minnesota threw it nearly 100 times, and the Jaguars’ kicker joins the large group of Jacksonville touchdown tossers. Week 5’s Smackems’ Game of the Week pits the quarterback sackin’ Seattle Seahawks against suddenly less mobile Nick Hall and the Oakland Raiders. How will the offense change for the Raiders? Once again, the winner will be bolded in white. Let’s pick some games! Dallas Cowboys (4-0) at Philadelphia Eagles (1-2) - Dallas comes in sporting one of the best defenses in the league to go along with their stellar rushing game. The Eagles had a bye week and hopefully they spent that time working on a way to better protect star Allan Taylor. Philly’s offense struggled early on in the season, but it was their defense that really let them down against the Cards. The Eagles will show improvement after the bye; however, Dallas is so good on both sides of the ball it won’t be enough. Houston Texans (2-2) at Miami Dolphins (4-0) - For four weeks now, I've picked the Miami Dolphins to take advantage of an inferior opponent. The tally is now up to five. The Dolphins are still firing on all cylinders, coming off a 31-13 victory over the Chargers. Brian Brown had his best game of the season, throwing for 300 yards and 3 touchdowns. Marcus Barry racked up a 157 total yards to go along with a pair of touchdowns. The defense continued its dominant play, forcing 3 turnovers and smothering the Charger offense all afternoon. Meanwhile, the Houston Texans were trampled by the Broncos on Sunday. Leshoure looked more like a rookie and Pacheco went another week without a touchdown. The Texans even found a way to make a struggling Broncos offense look great. The Texans are going to need to make some serious changes if they want a shot at taking down the Dolphins. Otherwise, the Dolphins will be taking this one with relative ease. This will be just another win for the Dolphins, who will lean on strong play from Brown and a suffocating defense. Courtesy of Jumanji Denver Broncos (3-1) at New England Patriots (1-3) - I love Denver and knew in my gut that I shouldn’t have picked against them. The struggling Bronco offense broke out in a big way against the Texans, racking up 38 points, with 4 TDs coming through the air. In one of the more bizarre games, the Patriots survived a monster game from Chad Dess and 2 pick sixes from the Bills defense to get their first victory of the year. New England is probably a little better than their record indicates since all of their losses have been relatively close. The Broncos are on another level though, and I think they go into Foxboro and get the job done. Tennessee Titans (2-2) at Cincinnati Bengals (2-2) - The Bengals and the Titans have both lost two in a row, bringing their records to an identical 2-2 mark. Cincy’s defensive struggles coincided with the loss of linebacker Nick Upshaw; they were going to face an uphill battle on defense already this season and this loss magnifies their deficiencies. Tennessee has really struggled on offense the past few weeks. Those issues start with the erratic play of Alexander Williams. Williams only threw for 141 yards against the Jags, and 101 of those yards went to Kevin Williams. Kevin is a great pass catcher, but the Titans need Xander to be able to get the rest of the team involved if they want to compete. The Bengals’ offense has yet to really start firing on all cylinders, but they do enough here to get the victory at home. Baltimore Ravens (1-3) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-4) - Baltimore saw an uptick in their offensive efficiency in a victory over the Browns during week 4. They were able to control the pace, limit their turnovers, and really give their defense a chance to dominate the game. In their first few games, the offense was so atrocious that the defense had little chance to be successful. Meanwhile, Tampa put up a stinker against the Cowboys. They were unable to accomplish anything on the offensive end. Dallas broke them down over the course of the game, and Tampa isn’t playing well enough on either side of the ball to compensate. The silver lining for Tampa in this game is that the Ravens aren’t an explosive offense. That gives Tampa hope. However, the lack of running game makes the game plan easy for Baltimore. The Ravens will get their second straight victory here. Indianapolis Colts (0-3) at Pittsburgh Steelers (2-2) - The Colts are coming off their bye, which came at the perfect time. They are in desperate need of a win before they fall in too deep of a hole in the AFC playoff race. Enter Pittsburgh, who is guaranteed to not make this an easy task for the Colts in this matchup. Chester Henson had his best game of the year against the Bengals and should help to propel the Steelers in their future games. Indy has struggled to get their running game going and get pressure on opposing quarterbacks. Aaron Shea is playing great football, but without the ability to change the pace of the game or make the opposing QB feel pressure, it’s going to be hard to win. Pittsburgh is playing good football right now and they are at home; that’s all they need to get the victory here. Los Angeles Rams (3-1) at Kansas City Chiefs (0-4) - The only issue I have seen with the Rams thus far is their inability to consistently protect their quarterback. Outside of that, they have played great football all season, even with the absence of Darrell Murphy for the first few games. Unfortunately for Kansas City, they don’t have the pass rushers to take advantage of the apparent Rams’ weakness. The Chiefs played their best game of the year against the Jets, but their brutal schedule continues with another game against a team playing at a high level. The Chiefs will put up a fight, but the Rams should take this one. Carolina Panthers (4-0) at Chicago Bears (1-3) - Chicago has started to make some headway on figuring out their offensive issues. They are starting to see a little more production out of Honeycutt and Brooksheer. Unfortunately their defense just gave up 38 points to Minnesota, who has a nice offense...but they aren’t the Carolina Panthers. Skaggs has led an all out assault on opposing defenses and that’s probably not going to change here. Chicago should score points, but Carolina will win this game with ease. Detroit Lions (3-1) at Jacksonville Jaguars (4-0) - Detroit went down swinging against the Panthers in a potential NFC playoff match-up. They held the high-flying Panthers to 17 offensive points, which is a pretty big accomplishment. The Jaguars bring a completely different set of challenges with their trick-plays attack; so far early in the season their opposition hasn’t figured out a way to slow them down. Detroit runs with a machine-like efficiency and has the necessary pieces to be the first team to slow down the Jacksonville attack. Soluna has the Jags as my favorites in the AFC South, but Detroit should get the road win here. New Orleans Saints (0-4) at Atlanta Falcons (3-1) - The Saints recently made a trade to acquire another ILB to alleviate some of their issues on the defensive end of the ball. The question for this game is do they need to make a scheme change to take advantage of their defensive additions? Unfortunately for them Atlanta brings the perfect defense to slow down their passing attack, so a defensive change is really going to make this a hard game. Atlanta is starting to build some momentum on offense, coming off a really efficient victory over the Giants. The Falcons win games when Jefferson plays well, and with the Saints already weak defense in flux, he should have no issue having a good day here. Green Bay Packers (4-0) at Minnesota Vikings (1-3) - Minnesota has gone all in on the shootout approach so far this season. Unfortunately for them, Green Bay brings one of the league’s best offenses to town with a plethora of weapons that can wreck even the best defense. Minnesota doesn’t possess the best defense, so expect a huge game from Jason Johnson and crew in a high-scoring, yet comfortable, victory for the Pack attack. Arizona Cardinals (1-2-1) at San Francisco 49ers (3-0) - In surprising fashion, the Cardinals and Redskins game finished in a tie. Ted is getting the most possible out of this Arizona squad scoring a victory over the Eagles before their tie with Washington. This week offers a major step-up in competition as they travel to wherever San Francisco plays now to take on the defending champion 49ers. Lester has been clutch so far this season helping the team start off 3-0 before their bye in week 4. Realistically he probably isn’t going to have to pull out more clutch magic this week as the 9ers should win this one with ease. *Seattle Seahawks (2-2) at Oakland Raiders (2-1) - Now that Nick Hall is going to look like Tim Duncan out there (miss you Timmy) the Seahawks have to be chomping at the bit to unleash their vaunted pass rush after the suddenly less mobile star. This will add some restriction to the offensive playbook that Alien has to work with, he’s going to figure it out but Seattle is not an ideal team to face immediately. Seattle lost a close one on the road to the Rams where they were able to get a crazy 7 total sacks. The Seahawks' offense has been a little hot and cold so far this year, but their defense should harass Hall enough to get the victory here. Buffalo Bills (1-3) at Washington Redskins (0-3-1) - Washington tied with Arizona and Buffalo lost a game in which they had 2 pick sixes and Chad Dess nearly ran for 200 yards. Those are things you don’t expect to see everyday, however; Buffalo has shown a glimmer of offensive hope early in the season. The Redskins have struggled all year trying to get points on the board. The injury to Fields didn’t help the situation, but there’s enough talent on the offensive side of the ball to not have these issues. Buffalo should be able to run the ball and they should be able to get after the quarterback. Bills get their second victory here. Week 4 record – 8-4 (Left the tie out) Overall record – 38-19 Jumanji’s Week 4 record – 1-0 Jumanji’s Overall record – 4-0
  9. tbf - I think @stormstopper only picked me to win like 3 games last year.
  10. Get that singing voice ready Tuscan.
  11. Who's the selection committee's sleeper? The person you're looking at to do big things that's not really expected?
  12. Who were the candidates at WR and why did you guys ultimately decide on Burkhart?
  13. Good list - great job guys.
  14. Philly used their bye week to get back to basics and start protecting Allan Taylor. Great job by them to only allow 1 sack tonight.
  15. Hello - Updated QB Navbox - http://cfbhc.com/wiki/index.php?title=Template:West_Virginia_Mountaineers_quarterback_navbox I created Riley Reardon - a Freshman (3/4) DT - http://cfbhc.com/wiki/index.php?title=Riley_Reardon Nicholas County High School (booo my high school's rival) - http://cfbhc.com/wiki/index.php?title=Nicholas_County_High_School Eventually - it might be cool to move NFLHC team pages to the wiki? I don't know - just throwing ideas out there.
  16. I think you hit everything pretty well on the Depth Chart front. I think the only thing I'd say is that a 3.0 player is a passable player - I mean a team full of 3.0s isn't ideal, but it's a passable starter for 85% of teams.
  17. I haven't run a 2 RB set in th NFL, but I at least understand the philosophy of the Pistol 2RB set (at least I think). I think Rome is right, I would want Heiden to be my quarterback. He's mobile enough to keep the defense honest, but he also seems to make really solid decisions. This is important because in my pistol I want a power back and a speed back. The quarterback's decision making will be an important aspect in who gets the ball when. I think both running backs need to have be fairly versitile. I'm partial to Marcus Barry, he's shown me so far that he can run and catch really well. If I'm making a realistic pairing I would probably go with Durant from Green Bay - he's showing a lot of versilitality as well. Heiden is going to make the right decisions, he can throw well and keep the defense off balance. Barry gets the bulk of the carries, and Durant comes in with 7 or so carries. I could totally not understand how it works, this is just my interpretation of it.
  18. Probably a step below the honorable mention category, but still greatly important to our success is Mekhi Cringle. Cringle needs to take a major step forward this year in order for us to achieve our lofty goals. We gained a few key pieces in Riley Reardon and Nathan Wilks to help balance out the defense some.. However with a (Fr) starting at #1 CB and a weak progression for (Fr) OLB Prince Malone, Cringle is going to need to combine with Reid and make big plays. If the D-line can keep getting pressure on the QB, I think he'll have the opportunities to shine and could make all-conference... If he doesn't take a step forward.. ouch... All WVU games will be like 49-35.
  19. Dolphins are not restructuring any deals.
  20. Well that was exciting...
  21. All Charged Up! Dolphins Ride Defense to 4th Straight Victory. Rookie Cory Betts gets First Career INT in the 2nd Quarter against LA
  22. The Cowboys have been running all over their opponents. Can they keep up the torrid pace? Week 3 is in the books and boy was it a rough outing for the Predictorama committee of one. We saw San Francisco win a close one over AFC powerhouse Oakland. Green Bay kept up their magical ride, and Christian Skaggs threw a lot of touchdowns. Week 4’s Smackems’ Game of the Week pits the high-flyin’ Carolina Panthers vs. the ever efficient Detriot Lions. Could this be an NFC title game preview? Either way expect a great game in the motor city. Once again, the winner will be bolded in white. On to the picks! Minnesota Vikings (1-2) at Chicago Bears (0-3) - One of the things that I can guarantee about this game is that there will be a lot of passes thrown. Chicago and Minnesota both come into this game throwing the ball between 45 and 50 times a game over their past few games. Don’t be surprised if the combined total of passing attempts breaks 100 in this game; so the question becomes who is better suited to get the necessary stops to win the game? Minnesota has proved to be one of the poorest in the league at stopping the pass, and that’s the perfect recipe for a big game for Chicago’s offense. I’ll take the Bears on Thursday night. Los Angeles Chargers (1-2) at Miami Dolphins (3-0) The Chargers have been outscored by opponents, 65-13, over the last two weeks. The offense is bad. The defense is bad. Nobody is surprised. The front office in Los Angeles is running a full rebuild and the team isn't expected to rack up many wins this season. This week's game will be no exception. The Chargers will be matched up against the undefeated Dolphins. Miami is off to one of the best starts in the league, ranking 3rd in point differential and allowing just under 12 points-per-game against. One big knock on Miami is the level of competition they've been up against through the first three weeks. Their opponents have a combined 1-8 record. These trends continue as the Chargers are blown out again, becoming the fourth straight cupcake win for the Dolphins. Courtesy of Jumanji Kansas City Chiefs (0-3) at New York Jets (2-1) - Last week Jets dispatched the Chargers with relative ease, albeit in unspectacular fashion, after their week 2 loss to the Bills. Matt Stone was the big performer in that win and I fully expect him to have another huge game this week against the Chiefs. Kansas City comes off another poor offensive performance where they scored their only touchdown of the game in garbage time. There are a lot of new pieces on the defensive side of the ball and the struggles there have really crept onto the offensive side of the ball. Rodgers is going to be a good running back one day, but very few rookies are going to be good right off the bat, so the struggles should be expected. Anyway, the Jets should win this one fairly easily with a big game from Stone. New England Patriots (0-3) at Buffalo Bills (1-2) - This AFC East battle pits two teams that many consider disappointments after their strong 2019 campaigns. Buffalo’s offense has been very boom or bust combining for 13 points in their losses to Miami and Denver, but exploding for 31 points in a victory over the Jets. Outside of their poor week one performance their star-studded defensive line is back to its quarterback wrecking ways, which opens up the rest of their defense to perform at its peak. New England has faced two 3-0 teams in Miami and Dallas after their head-scratching loss to the Chargers during opening week. The Patriots have kept those games close and with a couple of breaks could be sitting 2-1 right now. New England has a good line to stop the run, which happens to be the strength of the Bills offense. Buffalo will get pressure from their defense so this game comes down to Younger and his ability to create offense outside of Chad Dess. In the end New England is close to figuring it out and this is the day they break through. Cleveland Browns (2-1) at Baltimore Ravens (0-3) - One of the early trends in the 2020 NFLHC season is the collapse of once great defenses. The joining factor in these collapses is the lack of offensive production that these once great defenses are getting from their teams. It’s truly possible to win with a great defense in the league, but the team needs to at least have a competent offense to balance out that great defense. The offense plays an important role in keeping the defense off the field, swinging the field position battle, and aiding in time of possession. The best defenses are going to break if they do not get help from the other side. Enter Baltimore, they are struggling mightily on offense this season and it has taken a toll on their once great defense. On the other hand, Cleveland has improved on the defensive side of the ball holding a good Pittsburgh offense to 14 points in their victory. The Browns are also getting good efficient production from Clark and their stable of receivers. In the end it’s enough to dispatch the Ravens fairly easily. Denver Broncos (2-1) at Houston Texans (2-1) - Houston opened up the season with a shutout of the Bears, a competitive loss to the Lions, and a road victory over the surprising Bengals. Each week Rome seems to make progress with how to best utilize Alex Leshoure culminating with a 4 TD nearly 400 yard game in the rain vs. the Cincy defense. The jury is still out on whether the Cincinnati defense is actually good, but those numbers are great any way you slice them. Denver has one of the best defenses in the league, but surprisingly allows the most rushing yards. The numbers are probably a little misleading since the Broncos have only allowed 3 defensive TDs all season. This game comes down to the struggling Denver offense vs. Arturo Pacheco. Passing will be difficult against the Broncos, so Houston is going to need to get solid production from Pacheco to win this game. Denver has struggled scoring points all season and with the way Houston is playing on defense they will need to get something going to win this game. I love Denver, I truly love them, however; I am picking Houston in this one. Jacksonville Jaguars (3-0) at Tennessee Titans (2-1) - Jacksonville has been the class of a surprisingly stout AFC South division. There’s been a lot of focus on Trick Plays, but the fact is that the Jaguars are in the process of building something special down there in Jacksonville. They have arguably the league’s best running back, they are getting efficient quarterback play out of Barkley, and Haywood is showing to be one of the best up and coming LBs in the league. Tennessee was riding high until they hit the Green Bay buzzsaw, they are definitely much improved but that game probably exposes some major weaknesses in their team. That’s okay though, there’s only so much realistic improvement one can expect in the season ensuing a 1-15 campaign. Jacksonville is going to take the victory and keep the train rolling. Pittsburgh Steelers (1-2) at Cincinnati Bengals (2-1) - Cincy opened up the season playing pretty solid defense until this week when Houston dropped 38 points on them. That falls more into line with the expectations that surrounded their defense from the beginning of the year. The good news is that Joel King had probably his best performance of the year and the Bengal offense finally started to flash some of the potential that everyone expected to see. Ever since escaping Tampa, Adrian Jankowski has shown to be one of the top receivers in the league and being flanked by Rodney Montgomery and Greg Newman has given him plenty of opportunities to match up one on one with corners. Pittsburgh started off the season with a win over Tampa but has since fallen to Jacksonville and Cleveland. Paul Davenport is getting it done but there’s still some holes on the defense and at the wideout positions. Davenport is going to come to play, but Cincy has too many playmakers and will get the win. New York Giants (1-2) at Atlanta Falcons (2-1) - The Giants broke out of their offensive funk with a much needed victory over Minnesota. Unfortunately Minnesota’s defense is pretty terrible, so it’s hard to decipher how much the Giants offense really improved. Atlanta has one of the best secondaries in the league, so it’s going to be almost impossible for R.J. Stanford to replicate his performance from the previous week. That’s okay, the Giants don’t need that kind of performance every week. They just need for him to be functional enough to keep teams from stacking the box against them every week. The Falcons also got a much needed confidence booster on offense with their own shellacking of “terrible secondary” club member Tampa Bay. Atlanta has all the pieces to be a really solid team, they just need consistency out of A.J. Jefferson. The Giants will play defense, but I expect Atlanta to get the victory at home. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-3) at Dallas Cowboys (3-0) - It’s no secret that Tampa has really struggled defending the pass, but surprisingly that have been very stout against the run. The question remains is that because teams go all in on passing against them or do they have a good rush defense? If I were to bet I would say it’s a combination of both, they possess a good front 7 with players like Frank Williams leading the way but why waste time running when their secondary is playing so poorly? Dallas brings in this best rushing attack in the league so the contrast of styles is going to be interesting to watch. That rushing attack contributes to Dallas’ league leading defense as well allowing them to control the time of possession battle and put their defense in winning situations. Outside of their poor defense Tampa also brings in one of the most inefficient rushing attacks in the league which is not a winning recipe when the team can’t stop the pass either. Dallas is going win this one with relative ease. Washington Redskins (0-3) at Arizona Cardinals (1-2) - Arizona looked solid in their surprising victory over the Eagles where they were able to get their passing and running game working at efficient levels. Washington fell victim to Darrell Murphy in his debut, however, their achilles heel all season has been the poor play of their offense. The Washington football team was able to get good pressure on Murphy and force him into 3 fumbles, but this is another case of the offense not doing the defense any favors. I’m kind of perplexed as to why Washington has fared so poorly on offense, but they will need to improve quickly if they want to make a run this season. Arizona is at home. They are coming off a huge victory. Give me the Cards. Seattle Seahawks (2-1) at Los Angeles Rams (2-1) - The Rams are going to have to do a much better job of protecting Darrell Murphy going forward. Seattle comes to town bringing a stellar defense and an inconsistent offense with their newly acquired star Jarius Jones. This game was a close second in the Smackems’ game of the week voting and especially with the importance these early NFC West games are going to play in the playoff picture. The Rams seem to be another team that’s not getting a lot of production out of the running back position. They have Darrell Murphy so that is probably fine in a lot of games, but when they go up against elite defenses like Seattle that lack of balance is really going to hurt them. This game could easily go either way, but I’m going to take Seattle on the road. New Orleans Saints (0-3) at Green Bay Packers (3-0) - As good a matchup as Detroit was for the Saints the Packers are the complete opposite of that. Green Bay brings in three different wideouts who can really hurt the defense and that’s going to put a lot of strain on New Orleans who has struggled mightily against explosive offenses. The Saints can score and they will do that in this game, but unless they can slow the game down and win the time of possession battle handily, Green Bay will be too much to stop. The other factor is the Packers defense is playing at a really high level, so expect them to win one for the home crowd. *Carolina Panthers (3-0) at Detroit Lions (3-0) - In the Smackems’ Game of the Week the high-flying Panthers take on the NFC North powerhouse Lions. Let’s start with the obvious question: how do you even defend the Panthers? Christian Skaggs has shown the ability to carve up any defense, but if a defense focuses too much on that then Latta can crush them on the ground. They truly have the tools to win games many different ways, if their coach understands that then they could be truly impossible to stop. The Panthers don’t just bring offense though, they have enough defensive chops to keep most teams from winning games in shootout fashion. Enter the Lions, who possess a machine like efficiency on offense to go with their playmakers on defense. Otero showed up big in their week 3 victory over the Saints and if they want to win this game he needs to show up in a big way. In order to beat Carolina the game has to be slowed down and there has to be success running the football and keep Skaggs and company off the field. Otero performed against New Orleans, but he hasn’t performed against anyone else. If his body of work this season was stronger I would give them a shot, but Carolina will take this one.
