The Bolts are in. And they can absolutely cause problems for the Bills, Chiefs and Bengals in the AFC. And they will get Joey Bosa back pretty soon.
Their biggest impediment will be their impetuous, random and often clueless head coach, Brandon Staley.
Having a clueless head coach is no longer the Broncos biggest problem. They fixed that Monday, at least for now. Look, I sincerely don’t want to see anybody lose their job. And I’ve heard nothing but great things about Nathaniel Hackett the human being. But, I’m not sure I’ve EVER seen a bigger coaching train wreck in the NFL than NH. Folks are saying Sean Payton will be the next guy in Denver. Huh? WHY? Why would he want that job? Are you kidding? The “next guy” is going to be hamstrung with Russell Wilson, Russell Wilson’s Contract and Russell Wilson’s Bird. Payton don’t need none of that.
I know the Seahawks are fading after that hot start. But how smart does Pete Carroll look (again)? He unloaded Wilson for a king’s ransom. Carroll knew exactly what he was doing, and exactly why he did it.
Wilson is not just having trouble playing quarterback. He’s also having a hard time not getting fragged—or at least Wet-Willied—in his own locker room. “Unrelatable” is the description I keep hearing. The Stepford Quarterback.
Then there’s Tua. Very relatable. Good teammate. Good dude. Erratic quarterback. And now he’s back in the concussion protocol. I frankly think some of the good things we saw in Tua The Quarterback earlier this season have proved to be fool’s gold. Same problems I have outlined before. “Sight Thrower.” Doesn’t “throw guys open.” Locks in on one receiver. Well below-average arm. Cannot read zone defenses. Earlier in the season, the Dolphins could not win without Tua. Now they cannot win with him.
Concussions? Did you see that attempted assassination last night in Indy? Concussions? I’m worried that we’re actually going to see somebody die on the field. I am not kidding in the slightest.
Bowl season begins tonight for me. Now the matchups are getting good, starting with Wisconsin vs. Okie State. The rest of the week rocks!
