  1. Interesting. I thought it was just a hard hit and (poor) attempt at a block. I didn't have an issue with it.

    Again, I can't see the exact point of contact. It looked like Davis' side. Regardless, do you feel that a shot to the center of a player's back is as dirty as a clear effort to block the player from the side, but possibly making contact with the far left side of the player's back? I just don't. Hines Ward used to love his high blindside hits, and I don't blame him: the defense wants nothing more than to wreck an offensive player. As an offensive player, if I had a shot, I'd want to do the same. OBJs hit was an attempt at a legal block, not something blatantly illegal.

    Although true, we can't overlook the quality of the player he's up against. The Giants have a great DLine, and he's just not as good as Vernon. Not saying he's good, just that we need to expect him to struggle against better players. Stafford's pocket presence has become outstanding, by the way.

    This can't be argued. You need a pay raise.
  5. Hey guys. What are your thoughts on the OBJ block on Jarrad Davis?
  6. Jarrad Davis in concussion protocol

    I'm still having a hard time feeling that the OBJ hit was dirty. Players are running around, Davis is in position to make a tackle, so OBJ makes a hard hit with his shoulder to Davis' left side. Still can't find another view of the hit, but I don't think it was a blatant shot in the back. Hard hit, but a reasonable attempt at a block (from a player that weighs far less than the person he's trying to block). Then again, I think hitting a receiver in the knees as he's trying to make a catch is completely dirty, but unfortunately within the rules.

    Better shape? My roster was great heading into this year. In other words, I should have traded away David Johnson and Greg Olsen during the draft for unknowns because they were obviously going to miss the majority of this year from injuries sustained during weeks 1 and 2. Ridiculous. I love how you act like some hindsight expert, as if you didn't fall blindly into where you are. It's alright. It's week 3. Fantasy is all ebb and flow. Despite my terrible luck so far, I'm 1-1 with a decent roster. We'll see what happens.
  8. Is Aaron Rodgers prime being wasted by Thompson/McCarthy?

    Disclaimer: I'm a Lions' fan. I think the answer is yes. From the 2011 to 2016 seasons, the Packers have failed to win a Super Bowl despite having one of the top 3 QBs in the NFL during that span. That, to me, is a waste of his ability. No, other bad situations do not make his situation better. The organization doesn't get a pass because others have shown greater incompetence. You either put the pieces around that player to win Super Bowls, or you fell short. In my opinion, they've fallen short.

    The only video I can find right now makes it look like OBJ hit him on his left side/arm. Anyone have a better angle?

    Ha. You counter my mention of your fantasy football luck by bringing up more fantasy football luck. I lost my top player week 1, while your 11th player taken is a top fantasy performer after 2 weeks. And I'm supposed to feel... bad? You fell into the Hunt situation. If you don't win, I'll be amazed.
  11. LFFKL 2017 Discussion Thread

    Oh. We're assuming that a comment I responded to last week has me all sorts of fired up today. Interesting. I just pointed out that it was a strange thing to gloat about. If you knew Ware was going to be injured and Hunt would be a top RB in fantasy, you would have undoubtedly taken Hunt over Lynch. You didn't, of course, but didn't hesitate to gloat after the fantasy football luck shifted your way. Just found it sort of... desperate. If fantasy luck lands me a waiver wire stud, I'll be sure to thank everyone for not picking him up before I did. Who doesn't love a good 'lighthearded', desperate fantasy football post?

    From what I recall, I'm almost certain that it wasn't in the back. Additionally, I will never get mad at an offensive player for wanting to hit defensive players hard. When given the chance, defensive players try and do exactly that. OBJ threw a hard block on a defender who was directly involved in the play, attempting to tackle the ball carrier. I see nothing wrong with it.
  13. Jarrad Davis in concussion protocol

    Sure there is. OBJ was trying to block Davis, preventing him from making the tackle. Had the ball carrier scored a TD after that block, it would have been praised as a great play. It was a hard, clean block that could have directly impacted the play. I'd be mad if my receivers didn't try to block to help advance the ball.
  14. Jarrad Davis in concussion protocol

    I disagree. Defenders try to hit offensive players like that on each play. I have no issue with offensive players giving hard, legal blocks, especially to a defender who is in position to make a tackle. Hate that he's hurt, see nothing wrong with OBJs block.
