    Week 6 Scores Around The League

    How the Browns passed up on Saquon Barkley is beyond me...that dude is ridiculous. I loved him at PSU and thought he was one of the best ever in college but I didnít think that would translate this well to the NFL.

    If you havenít seen his highlights, do yourself a favor and check them out from last night.

    The Browns got 2 pretty good players but either one of those guys with Barkley wouldíve been so much more IMO.

    That run on the screenplay was just insane. Barry Sanders-like.

    Eli is bad. Very bad. Embarrassingly bad.

    Yeah...his age is starting to show...but Iím not sure itís not also because the Giants arenít equally as bad as a whole.

    1-5. The Giants are not a good team. Eli could be just the only guy on that offense that knows where the play is going when he's not handing it off. I got fooled by the WRs last season too but they are way over-rated. Plus their OL and DL are playing like garbage.

    3-3 Eagles are not as good as the Giants made them look either.

    Saquan Barkley is just the latest example of how a franchise RB alone can't take you far at all. Barkley is lighting up the league yet the Giants are 1-5 because the defense is a shell of it's 2016 version and Eli is way past his prime

    The hell of it is, they could've taken Barkley at #1 and still had no problem getting Mayfield #4. Judging from the surprised reactions, I am 99% certain nobody else had him as their top-rated QB or was going to use a top-5 pick on him. To everyone but the Browns, he was the fourth QB on the board. So they essentially outbid themselves on that one.

    On the other hand, as amazing as Barkley is, he is probably going to get hurt before long. On half or more of his highlight-reel runs, he is an inch away from someone falling heavily sideways into his legs as he makes a cutback. One unlucky play where that happens while his leg is planted, and that's a blown-out knee for sure. It sucks to think about, but I would be willing to bet money on that.
    An empty victory is a victory nonetheless.

    My thoughts exactly but even Barkley and Ward would be ridiculous.

    OBJ is a fraud. Heís nothing but a viral sensation because he made a one handed catch on Sunday Night Football. He makes that catch in a 1pm game on a Sunday and all it gets is an ESPN mention. His drops, pour route running and pouting is no where near a top flight receiver in the NFL. AB, Julio, AJ, Mike Evans are so far superior than him itís crazy. Iíd even take Stefan Diggs if I were building a team before OBJ.

    Then you'd still have Tyrod Taylor as your #1 quarterback, and you'd finish the season 0-15-1, and Drew Stanton's backup's backup would finish as your fourth starting QB of the year.

    Mayfield and Ward have worked well for them so far. They have thus far upgraded at QB and CB (though it's early). They also previously got Carlos Hyde and then added Nick Chubb later, so what they ended up with wasn't exactly bad. Plus it's not like the Giants are doing much of anything as a team with Barkley

    Manning embarrassed himself, Beckham embarrassed himself, and the once storied NY Giants organization embarrassed itself. It was sad to see.

    Could be totally different with the threat of Barkley back there though and Taylor wasnít horrendous. He played the Steelers to a tie...lol. They definitely wouldíve been better off to have started Mayfield from Day One though. To have Mayfield and Barkley on offense wouldíve been pretty nice for them.

    Today's Scores

    Texans 20 Bills 13: Texans blew a 10 point lead before rallying. Texans now at .500 after an 0-3 start

    Falcons 34 Bucs 29: Falcons almost blew a 15 point lead

    Vikings 27 Cardinals 17: Cardinals got on the board first but Vikings took control. Cards suck

    Chargers 38 Browns 14: Browns get blown out and look like last year's browns for the first time this season

    Jets 42 Colts 34: Jets now 3-3

    Redskins 23 Panthers 17: Win puts Redskins in division lead by default

    Seahawks 27 Raiders 3: Raiders are easily the worst team in the AFC, a mess. 4 wins is their ceiling

    Dolphins 28 Bears 28: Dolphins put 28 and draw Bears to OT with Brock Shitweiler at QB. Trubisky looking very much improved

    Kenyan Drake fumbled at the goal line attempting the run for victory. Ball goes to Bears and they are driving.

    Probably asking too much for the Titans to pull out a win and knock the Ravens down to 3-3 today(?)

    Probably will be a low scoring game. Titans defense is pretty good this year, but their offense is pretty bad.

    Dolphins win 31-28 on the last play of the game. Bears choked, losing to Shitweiler. Trubisky though looks much improved

    Not a good game for the Bears D, one that previously had been dominating with Mack

    17-0 Cowboys over Jaguars.

    Jalen Ramsey is a shadow of what he was last season...

    If you're going to talk the talk you better be able to walk the walk. Or something like that...

    Ramsey is getting thrown at much more often this year from what I hear...heís clearly not as good as his previous season indicated. Still better than anything Pittsburgh has though...lol

    Yep, I would take him in a heartbeat. He and Haden would be pretty sick.
