Jags def kicked some botty for me there. Probably should have played Prescott over Brady but c'est la vie.
Didn't really matter given my wide reciever/running back failures.

Shouldn't have subbed out the Rams as defence either, just didn't think they could match the previous week.

I’m furious about the hit on Flacco. After all the talk of preventing hits to the head and the damage done by concussions, a QB no less is absolutely demolished by a late hit to the head, whilst sliding, and is immediately concussed. You could see on the footage Flacco didn’t know what planet he was on.

The guy doing it didn’t even get ejected, I don’t know what kind of message that sends to players. It was a cheap shot and as dirty as they get. Kiko Alonso will have a target on his back for some time now.

Certainly could have avoided the collision. He'll probably get a suspension.

Cause i didn't get chance to log in after the waivers had completed to put the guy I picked up in them in before the round had started. C'est la vie.

Wouldn't have made a difference in any case.

You know you can swap players right up until the game start time? ;)

Not if a player is on a bye. Gotta do that before the game on Thursday night.

What I should have done is bench Succop for an empty slot. But I didn't cause I'm not really thinking about it all that much.

That's strange innit - you can swap out someone not on a bye a minute before they play but not someone who will never play? Strange way to do it. Nothing in the league settings to change it either.

Another week, another horrific injury. Greg Olsen’s surgeons are apparently fighting to save his leg, never mind his career, and if you saw the footage it’s no surprise why.

I thought the Haywood injury was bad 🤢

The TE? Not seen anything about it.

Edit: Odd it happened at the same time as Zach Miller needs emergency surgery to save his leg after dislocating it.

Oh crap I got the wrong TE? 😳 I’ve always got Olsen and Miller mixed up. Think it’s because Olsen used to play for the Bears.

Yeah its a bit counter intuitive. Thats why i thought earlier on in the season that subs might happen automatically.
