    Nick Foles is….

    You do realize this guy beat Tom Brady in the Super Bowl then took over next year and took a team that was out of the playoffs into the playoffs, beat the Bears in soldier Field, the year the bears were supposed to have an elite defense, and would have had a chance to beat NO in NO if Alshon Jeffrey didn’t drop a big pass.

    In the right situation Nick Foles is a solid QB and he’s clutch AF. 🤷‍♂️

    Bears did have an elite Defense, held them to 16 pts.
    Bears, as every year, did NOT have an elite Offense and a double doink Kicker!

    Of Course Jeffery dropped the pass – an ex-Bear!

    You can be Houdini and it isn’t going to help on this team! :)

    no separation, guys dropping balls, no pass blocking, no imagination on play calling. It’s a festivus miracle that they are still in this game. I’m hoping for a tie.

    Taylor is not a thing, let’s stop making him a thing. Too many cooks in the kitchen. And he’s just OK. There was a reason Marlon Mack was the starter before he got hurt.

    The reason Mack was the starter is because he was the veteran and Taylor is just a rookie.

    Can’t really say there’s too many cooks in the kitchen when Taylor has been outsnapping both Hines and Wilkins. Here are Wilkins snap percentages over his previous 5 games

    20
    21.4
    19.4
    3.9
    6.8

    Finally, that 1 yard rush by Wilkins and 2 yard rush by Burton could have easily been Taylor’s, and then he most certainly would have a been a thing today.

    If they get the ball back, they should just take a knee and run the clock out.

    He sure was a beast in college. Dont all rookies have a starter in front of them when they get drafted?

    I mean all teams have RB’s on the depth chart. Yet the coaching staff didn’t feel he was a better option than Mack, after seeing him in camp. And now they give Wilkens carries and Hines gets the passing work.

    What a guy does in college often means nothing. I can name scores of college RB beasts who have done little to nothing in the pros. Certain systems make RB’s look good…sometimes they are good, sometimes they’re really not.

    Yeah he would have hung a big 11 DK, If he got a TD, yay.

    He’ll have weeks where he threatens for 20 DK yet it will be on 15 carries a PI in the end zone, and another 1 yard trip over the goaline.

    I’ll give him one more shot against Houston. Then he’s off the list and onto the dnp list

    Right. It’s very obvious, especially after this week, we have plenty of evidence that Taylor is not a bell cow back and won’t be treated as such. Might he have good games before the years over? Sure, but picking them out will be extremely difficult, barring injuries.

    Of course, this doesn’t mean in the future Taylor can’t be “a thing,” but right now he is most definitely not.

    And I’m fairly confident his teammates don’t like him. I watched Trey Burton stand there and let Taylor get pushed back instead of trying to push him into the endzone

    Same. I will cash on a few a few GPP lineups with Jimmy G in them. Would have cleaned up if he did something.

  • yisman

    confused why the Saints kicked the FG on first down rather than running the clock down

    And I was just responding to your post since you mentioned Taylor, I wasn’t implying that you thought he was awesome

    They knew if the Bears got the ball back, Foles was going to either get sacked and fumble or throw a pick, so they wanted time left over for the Bears Offense to give them the ball back!!

    Pretty much every Penn State running back and Trent Richardson.

  • synth

    i mean “name 5” is easy if you’re just using “literally led ncaa in rushing and then didn’t do much in nfl”

    it’s incredibly easy if we extend to just “beasts” that failed

  • jayzee666

    I had Taylor in a few LUs. That is NEVER good for any player.

    Took down third in the .25 for a grand and $1195.75 overall. That’s pretty big for a small time player like me.
