Quick start by Pipkin and the als - then suddenly Pipkin gets the shakes and serves up a Matt Nichols Special - only good pursuit by the Als prevents a Pick 6 - possible chance Johnny Clipboard gets into this event - otherwise the guy may as well wash thru the league.
Teams like Winnipeg could have all their QBs run over by a truck - and they wouldn’t touch Johnny with a 10 foot pole!
OMG - on only his 2nd play from scrimmage Travis Lulay is down after a semi-late hit by J Bowman (no penalty) . . . . his shoulder has been re-destroyed . . . . should be it for the year for Big Red. . . . darn - I kinda like the guy!
Busy finishing up some packing for a trip so missed the play - bad turn of events for Lulay - a very likable QB as you say. So far Jennings is getting the job done - leos up 10-0 - and Pipkin is having his issues from the little bit of game I’ve been able to watch so far.
Leos feasting so we might yet see “whiny Johnny”
Looks like Burnham and the Leos D were good choices for my fantasy lineup - so far anyway.
At least JJ Jennings throws passes with authority (and often accuracy) and has a passel of very good to near-great receivers to work with.
He’s fleet of foot enough to compensate for a less than average (ie. weak) o-line but the combination of solid coaching (Wally is nearly done, I admit) and a decent defense, great kicking (Ty Long is a monster) gives them a distinct edge over the poorly coached and depth-challenged bombers who have to trudge along with Mope Nichols at the helm. Bombers managing to pull the wool over many of their fans with some smart talk-yap between games. Games are their kryptonite!
Did anyone notice after the second pick-six, they showed Manziel on the sideline and he appeared to be smiling? He was probably thinking “Guess I’m starting next week,” but to smile after a devastating play like that? Not cool.
