You fin fans should have been praying for your QB. Tua out of week 3 clash according to Flores.

 

Saves him from the OL getting him killed in next couple games, they tried last week and only just failed!

It's been a cracking start to the season with some amazing games already.

 

Hope it continues like this and becomes a classic year.

Really want to get into this sport but I really struggle with the positions and the technical stuff. Got the Buffalo Pittsburgh game on now.

Dunno if you've stuck with it still, but it was only around this time last year that I got into NFL and I look forward to every match now. Even watch a bit of college football on BT.

 

to this day, I stull don't know an awful lot about the positions, tactics, jargon etc. But I still really enjoy watching it and it's quite refreshing watching a sport where I'm not too intense on it. I just enjoy each game for what it is and what I see. Red Zone is good, but I actually found it easier in the opening weeks to just watch the narrative of one full game. Just to get into how all the downs and stuff work.

 

It's a great sport though, and it really is one of those, a bit like football where anything can happen on the day, and most games are never over til the final whistle. So many twists and turns in an individual game and there's not a lot of sports that can boast that.

Panthers 3-0 - delighted. Couple of noticeable losses tho, CMC short term, Horn perhaps for the season. 

 

Bring on the Cowboys!!

Been looking forward to this one. Incredible player, such a force within that Steelers D. Wouldn’t like to get on his wrong side, one helluva intimidating guy.

Tua goes onto IR and I think that might be the end of the road for him in Miami.

 

Not sure it does mean that. They were in a bit of a quandary as they have a 3rd QB that they like on their practice squad called Reid Sinnett, they now have to call him up to the main squad because of Tua's injury, but the NFL rules mean that if he's called up twice under the current rules then he's fair game to be claimed by any other team after that from their practice squad (he can be protected on the PS before that, which he has been).

 

Tua was going to be out a couple of weeks at least, so putting him on IR (which is minimum only 3 weeks) means they only don't have him for the Bucs game (after Raider/Colts) as well...which they're unlikely to win anyway even if he would be fit for it. It also means they can add Sinnett as an IR replacement without cutting anyone else and because of that he still has the 2 game protected callup from PS available.

 

Complicated, but it's basically roster management.

Oh **** off Miami 😡🖕

😑 Our defense is the strongest part of our game , certainly until we get an OC who can utilise the talent we have , yet its been utterly shredded two weeks in a row. 14-0 up and then they switched off as though they went nah we are fed up doing our jobs when you cant even move the ball 5yards…

 

Feels like its going to be a long season already

Well the Raiders continue to make things much more difficult than they need be. The OL in particular is poor 
 

Carr continues to put up impressive numbers.
 

Though special thanks to Miami coaching staff for the play call which resulted in the safety and turnaround. That was a strange strange play call.
 

That said 3-0 for first time in 19/20 years. The chiefs are bottom the league and huge trio to chargers next.

Offense 

Quarterback: The leader of the team. He calls the plays in the huddle, yells the signals at the line of scrimmage, and receives the ball from the center. Then he hands off the ball to a running back, throws it to a receiver, or runs with it.

Center: The player who snaps the ball to the quarterback. He handles the ball on every play.

Running back: A player who runs with the football. Running backs are also referred to as tailbacks, halfbacks, and rushers.

Fullback: A player who’s responsible for blocking for the running back and also for pass-blocking to protect the quarterback. Fullbacks, who are generally bigger than running backs, are short-yardage runners.

Wide receiver: A player who uses his speed and quickness to elude defenders and catch the football. Teams use as many as two to four wide receivers on every play.

Tight end: A player who serves as a receiver and also as a blocker. This player lines up beside the offensive tackle to the right or the left of the quarterback.

Left guard and right guard: The inner two members of the offensive line, whose jobs are to block for and protect the quarterback and ball carriers.

Left tackle and right tackle: The outer two members of the offensive line.


Defence

Defensive tackle: The inner two members of the defensive line, whose jobs are to maintain their positions in order to stop a running play or run through a gap in the offensive line to pressure the quarterback or disrupt the backfield formation.

Defensive end: The outer two members of the defensive line. Generally, their jobs are to overcome offensive blocking and meet in the backfield, where they combine to tackle the quarterback or ball carrier. On running plays to the outside, they’re responsible for forcing the ball carrier either out of bounds or toward (into) the pursuit of their defensive teammates.

Linebacker: These players line up behind the defensive linemen and generally are regarded as the team’s best tacklers. Depending on the formation, most teams employ either three or four linebackers on every play. Linebackers often have the dual role of defending the run and the pass.

Safety: The players who line up the deepest in the secondary — the last line of defense. There are free safeties and strong safeties, and they must defend the deep pass and the run.

Cornerback: The players who line up on the wide parts of the field, generally opposite the offensive receivers.

There are various you tube etc which will give you a good understanding. However, a good way to learn the game is to play madden. 
 

I’m unsure of your vintage so may be a stupid idea🙈

Don't think we're as bad as our record tbh.

 

And it doesn't help when the officials let Tucker kick that FG almost 3 seconds after the play clock expired. Shambles.

No problem, it's harder to comprehend for normal football fans due to each player only really having 1 specific task within a play and formations can change play to play.

 

Imagine in normal football if you were able to select 11 players from the 18 man squad for every set piece, 1 corner you play 4 centre half's too add height and the opposition counter with having 5 CH's defending the corner so corner 2 you drop to 2 CH's and add 2 players that can shoot from distance and it just continues on like that with bluff and counter bluff with both sides trying to guess what the opposition are going to try next.

i thought the rams made a mistake in throwing for the TD at 1st and goal with only 35 seconds left on the clock. they probably would have been better trying to run the clock down on the first 2 downs then going for the TD. Asw it gave mahomes 30 odd seconds to try and get a TD and win it for the chiefs. yes it never happened but all it would have taken is hill catching one of the throws from mahomes.

 

also if you have not seen it yet Agnew (jaguars) scored a 109 yard TD v the cardinals, the defense parted just like the aberdeen one for st mirrens winner yesterday

Thing is we have weapons , we have been abysmal on offence , i hoped wed improve after binning CG but jesus 😑 its the same shite as last year , weird plays that no other team tries , the special teams crap tpday shouldn’t happen. Idiotic penalties too. Its not good enough. I like Flores and I like what hes trying to do but we are looking as though we have regressed. Thats not on Tua in my head either.

I know it was pre-planned but that halftime toast to Shula really pissed me off too. The man would be embarrassed by the shitshow going on there just now. And whilst they were losing too. Just **** off. 😐🤣

Can't afford to miss the tackles, especially when 4 guys missed the runner on last Falcons score, but the call on Young was a shocker. Not sure Ryan he felt it and officials desperate to be involved for no reason. 

At least Washington kept going and great effort for winning run.

That was horrific yesterday, every bit as bad as the Bills shitshow a couple of weeks ago. I gritted it out until the 4th quarter, but gave up after Brissett fumbled. He won't cure it, as it's way more than just the QB play that is a problem, but I hope Tua is back soon, can't bear watching much more of Brissett.

Yep that was a poor call, especially since we ended up with the ball. Still a big worry how the defence are playing, its not been a bit of a blip one week , but every game. With the run of games coming up, it need sorted fast. Del Rio under a bit of pressure already?

Where do we go to solve it. As i say I dont think Tua is the problem. The OC being changed needed to happen but the coOCs seem to have just carried on with the same shite. The defensive schemes early yesterday were superb and looked like you expect of the Miami defence. Then they just started looking shocking too. 
 

Its ridiculous.

The Bills are looking decent so far.  Surprisingly little chat about them on the BBC, almost like the NFL equivalent of Hearts, the beeb like to ignore them :D

 

Seems odd, after having a passing interest in them for the past 15 years or so, to see them actually being considered as a possibility for the superbowl
