A quarter of the season gone
4 games in & sitting @ 3-1
3-0 on the road; hot damn!
Defense was torched by Brees & Matty Ice in the first two games but, they've seemed to right the ship. DJ Hayden is actually playing some very good defense and is a much better tackler this year. David Amerson is rated the #1 cb (PFF) so, far this season. Although he got his first sack yesterday; still waiting on Mr. Mack to unleash hell on the qbs.
Offense is doing just enough.....
Carr is taking what the defense is giving him and he's not forcing throws (not many) into coverage. He's thrown 1 interception and has led them to 2 comeback wins so far this season.
They've not settled on a featured rb yet as Murray/Washington/Richard have all split the load thus far. This could help w/having fresh legs down the road.
All Hail King Crab!
The o-line is keeping Carr upright; he's only been sacked 2x.
Bolts can score but, can't play defense; could be a shootout (Raiders D is a little better?) Rivers must be stopped.
Chefs will be a tough out. Jamal Charles will be back (3rd game) and he typically eats the Raiders up.
Jags won vs the Colts and it could be a momentum turn. Their wr's Hurns/Robinson are some bad dudes.
Losing to the Bucs could be that 1. Winston is streaky but, when he's hot....
tell me that when they fly out to J'ville they aren't even go back to Oaktown; opting rather to stay in Florida for 2 weeks (thanks schedule makers; dickheads).
