Spin it how you want man

It's all I have at this point.    No expectations for anything huge from him, just be able to operate effectively within the system.    Way too much guaranteed money is tied up with him, which was a mistake.   They did paint themselves into a corner, in doing that.

Next step is to do what they did 3 years ago, bring in two veteran OL to shore up an OL that missed having Sullivan's and Saffold's experience this season.   Plus Whitworth, as important as he was the past 3 seasons, is getting just about to retirement.

Next step after that is re-tooling a little of the offensive strategy, as opposing teams have figured out the patterns enough after 3 seasons.

Signing OL isn't hard but getting two veteran OL who are starters and produce is something probably at least 10 other teams are trying to do not counting teams that need one OL or backups for depth.  Re-tooling of the offensive strategy comes down to coaching.  Ever since last year's Super Bowl where the Patriots defense made the Rams offense look like a pop warner team the Rams really didn't rebound.  Did the Patriots just crush them that much or did they show other average to good defensive teams how to play the Rams while the Rams couldn't adjust?  I don't know the answer but giving up your 2020 and 2021 first round picks for Ramsey isn't going to make fixing their problems any easier.

This is definitely McVay's first major test (post-Super Bowl period) so far.   

The 2019 passing yardage stats were pretty much the same as in 2018, but 10 fewer TD passes (and 5 more INTs) were thrown in 2019.   Plus, the rushing attack slumped by 1.2 yards/carry. 

Gurley's question mark health during the Super Bowl and during the 2019 season may have well had some sort of impact, as defenses could now more focus on the passing game.   Maybe they need to use the jet sweep more, as Woods excels there?

The Gurley question will need to be addressed in the off-season.    Malcolm Brown is another RB who is solid when healthy, but also can't stay healthy.

Was Joe Judge on anyone’s radar? I’m not up to date on the up and coming coaches. 

I had no clue who the dude was and thought it was a joke or Onion article when I read about him becoming the Giants coach.

Second time in three years Minnesota has beaten NO then gotten beat in every facet of the game the following week. If NO won last week we would be watching a Seattle/San Fran week 17 rematch right now.  Any of this weekends game had the potential to be good and an underdog may win but on paper only the GB/Seattle game excites me.  Looking forward to the potential championship games next weekend more than this week.

The last two years Henry has gotten stronger as the season goes on. He looks like a linebacker and delivers punishment like one but moves like a RB which is fun to watch. If Tenn holds on the AFC title game is in KC Or Houston.  This may just be the year Andy Reid gets KC into the Super Bowl. As I type this Tenn just picked off Jackson up by 22.

To play the spoiler role Tennessee needs to not let Jackson run all over them, Henry needs to run the ball effectively while helping keep Baltimore's offense off the field and Tannehill take some shots to Brown/Smith. 

Sounds good

Brown wasn’t really a factor but that Smith TD was unreal. The two 4th down stops stuffing Jackson were huge. He’s still racked up yards on the ground but some have been in garbage time when Tenn is trying to not give up a big pass play. Always entertaining watching a 1 seed get crushed at home.

Chiefs v. Texans. Wow, Texans are off to a 14-0 lead 5 minutes into the first quarter. Just blocked a punt and ran it in for a TD.
