    Aye, they've got some fucking talent on that side of the ball. Just, over the season, not been cohesive and getting picked apart by good coaching exploits.

    Agree. In a PPR league, CMC could go first overall. Gurley will be consensus but CMC at 1 won't be an unheard of choice.

    Brown at 7 is ridiculous. Top 3, comfortably.

    Was a great season lads. Good to get the win, even if RnT pushed me all the way. Looking forward to rolling around again next year. Now time to bring on the NRL fantasy season. @Random, I'd be keen on the NRL draft of there's one going.

    Holy fucking shit! I was about a minute away from coming in here full of piss and vinegar over another wasted oppurtunity, but then that happens... I want to buy into the hype but the defence stresses me out, for as suffocating as they can be, they are disgustingly prone to getting gashed by big plays, especially in situations where the opposing offence has no right to get anywhere near the 1st down marker.

    Haven’t really looked at playoff scenarios but I wonder if it’s possible for us to get the Titans, pretty positive Mariota would still be having nightmares about our last encounter

    And last but certainly not least, I read that the game was shown on the big screen at Heinz field, if I find footage of the stadium at the exact moment Mosley picks of that pass, it’s going straight into the wank bank

    blegh, don't get to watch many Ravens games live these days, but i always pick the dissapointing ones, god the defence is great to watch, but they don't deserve the field position they're being dealt, the occasion and the Chargers adjustments from the last game have overawed poor Lamar.

    fuck me never-mind then, credit to the kid for having the heart after all the setbacks to get LA sweating, will be nothing short of incredible if he can take this drive into the endzone.

    fuck me nevermind 2.0, what an anti-climax

    Understand it’s playoff footy and Chargers figured out the option real early but the booing was embarrassing from the Ravens fans! Line was getting minced by Bosa and Ingram all day, no way they come back like they did without Jackson, Flacco would of been face down in the grass trying to pass his way back into that game! Surprised my chargers didn’t throw it away but gameplan from Gus was excellent

    It’s not a good look but I think the context has gotten left behind a bit, especially from a fan base who’s spent the last 3 years supporting a team capable of going deep into the playoffs with a maddening habit of falling apart when it matters most.

    I don’t for a second believe the boo birds actually wanted Flacco in, as much as they wanted a visible sign that something was actually going to change after watching 3 and a half quarters of running a game plan that resulted in 50 rushing yards and negative passing yards, strangely enough once they abandoned the option, Jackson was able to make some things happen from the pocket

    Read an article that said the Ravens gameplan for the wildcard game was the same as they had for the regular season game against LAC, so they knew what was coming for the first 3.5 quarters of play. Hard for any QB under those circumstances.

    Must admit, I thought the Colts would be picking in the top 12 against this year. They are looking dangerous, I really hope they knock the Chiefs off (probs wont but still), and I feel like the LAC/Pats game will produce the AFC champion.

    yeah apparently we had a lot of tells, from certain formations right down to the way Ronnie Stanley was lined up, probably an unfortunate side-effect of having to pull a completely new playbook out of our arse mid-way through the season that wouldn't overwhelm a rookie QB. would like to think they'll be able to expand and flesh it out over the off-season when Jackson has the time to wrap his head around it.

    Seems like it'll come down to whether Eric Berry plays or not. It's gonna be a great game either way, I think

    Tells of an offensive lineman are not new, DL know this sort of thing anyway, been doing it for years to get an extra upper hand. Bradley just outplayed Marty, with 7 DBs you have to play a power run game, we were set for the run/read option, and forcing Jackson wider into our fast DBs, straight up the guts where we aren't strong was the way to go, can't believe they didn't ram Gus the Bus at us, Using the read for so long enabled Bosa and Ingram who lined up in the middle of the line the extra time to beat the interior, playing simple up the guts would of slowed our pass rush right down. Ravens OL isn't built for slower developing plays, they are all roadgraders, let them do what they do best.

    Our rush D isn't great, certainly not as good as the 9th ranking, we are usually up so teams simply don't run as much on us

    No way Bellicheat doesn't ram the ball on us all day on Sunday!

    If we can get the same sort of pressure we will win, but playing a playoff game in Foxboro with the refs will be tough! We are due a ST mishap please don't let it be this weekend

    Yeah, stoked with it. Best case scenario. A lot of coaching hires I really like actually...

    Arians in Tampa is a great move. He likes Winston apparently and did good things in Arizona with a similar level of roster talent. Bringing Bowles with him is also a good move, I thought he was ok in NY.
    Gase at NYJ is also great. QB whisper to work with Darnold + brings a lot of divisional knowledge with him. Potentially McCarthy as an OC is also a good move (although not locked in yet)
    Fangio + Kubiak as basically Co-HC is great. Fangio has bought a top D everywhere he goes and Kubiak won a ring in his last season.

    Not sold on the Texas Tech guy at Arizona... dont think his style will suit Rosen. Also dont like LaFleur in Greenbay... would be a decent hire if they had a young QB to work with but it seems to be wasted on a team with AR12. He's going to need a great DC to go with him, although Aaron Jones will be happy.

    Interested in who Miami and Cinci get - both are basketcases a decent HC wouldnt want a part of. Theyll have to settle for a shit HC or a OC/DC/STC chasing a promotion.

    LAC standard personnel is a 6DB look, leaves a lot of room in the box. Patriots running over them. Welshy called it earlier in the page.

    I hope whoever in the NFC makes it beats the AFC team. Hate them both.

    Seen it all too often! Too easy to predict, our LBs are all fucked, all out good ones at least! Rayshawn Jenkins is mediocre and Addae who has been playing LB is piss poor in coverage! I knew Michel would chew us and we played zone for far too long! Only chance we had was switching to man and trying to force some mistakes with extra pressure!

    We got dicked, I’m fine with that but it’s farcical how much the Pats get away with! They hold on every fucking play, Gronk does all day long! We had 2 3 and outs early overturned via horrible defence holding penalties whilst the pats can seemingly do as they ducking please! When the game is over they start getting a few token holds called! Fucking shambles! Rivers was getting wacked late every other play and they turn a blind eye
