FLAG BEARERS

As the CFBHC season rolls near, it's the Michigan Wolverines led by Head Coach jmjacobs who grab the top spot in the preseason AP poll. Will they remain at the top? Or fall to an unlikely upset?

FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH

Patriots QB Darren Werner gave us a little blast from the past when he threw for 475 yards and 5 touchdowns against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in preseason week 2.

IT'S CROOTIN SEASON

Along with the CFBHC season comes CROOTIN! Time to think, and think and think, and maybe overthink your strategies and then get beat out by Penn State on all of your favorite croots.

ALL HAIL MCQUEEN?

Detroit Lions rookie CB Kevin McQueen has made some noise early in the preseason, recording an interception in both games so far. Have the Lions finally found Keyshawn Thompson a running mate?

HOCKEY COME BACK, WE CAN MAKE IT UP TO YOU

    Memeber when people use to shit on the 49ers for their rookie safeties? I member

     

    To be fair their rookie safeties are not good. Not really sure why your comment is even relevant. They 100% did not win because of their safeties.

    They face a team that only has one thing that isn't a short run, a deep thread with Michael Hawkins... who got a 35 yard TD against their safety. This explains why you aren't a coach tbh.

    Josh Holland, the rookie nickelback out of Arizona, coming up with the biggest play of his life.

     

    We took this guy in the 5th round this year, even though CB wasn't a particularly big need for us. I think I remember Soluna saying he was really fast after the pick and it made me feel even better about the pick. Harold Kennedy, an OLB we took in the 7th this year, also got a sack today. Miles Collins, the receiver we took in the 3rd round, won our game against the Rams in OT with his return skills. My point is that we have a lot of young guys making plays and, without them, I don't think we would've made it this far. Very happy with our staff's draft preparation and the wonderfully-timed luck we have been granted.

    It's pretty obvious to me that by running at the 49ers DEs and throwing at their safeties you can easily put up like 35. I think the harder thing is containing their weird offense.

    That was exactly my gameplan... :(

    Let's transition into the obvious weaknesses of the Jets and then go around the room, having each person stating how they would defeat the Jets pls.

     

    I would personally play a goal line defense against beast runningback Emmanuel Fields and run directly at Alvis Brumm

    I would rig the PA system to periodically blast "WEGRETS" to plunge them into a continued state of melancholy.

    Wegert is turnover prone, their run defense isn't that good.  Pretty good corners, mediocre safeties, decent linebackers.  They are pretty balanced defensively.

    Perhaps I'm taking this the wrong way, but did you expect this to be an easy win for you guys or something? We lost to you on the road by 10 with our backup QB on Week 14. I thought we were pretty evenly matched and the game could've gone either way. AT threw the ball really well, but White and Davis were just terrible. Our defense was able to step up and make the plays when we needed them to (the pick-six and 2pt stop). Regardless, good game. It could have been you guys moving on just as easily.

    Well, we had an amazing run, and AT is worth every cent and every pick, but all things must end :(

     

    Was not expecting this team to lose to the Niners in the end, but hey, we beat the Giants three times this season so that takes the sting out.

     

    I think the Niners are just really sneaky good. They (IMO) quietly had a very balanced team. Top 10 offense and defense. Not many Pro-Bowlers but lots of players that can make a big play and contribute on both sides of the ball. We all knew about their speedy offense, but what's more impressive to me is how good their "bend-but-not-break" defense has been this season. Job well done with both personnel and coaching.

     

    And yes, losing one game short of the big game sucks, but 7-0 against the G-Men makes me feel much better.
