Let the Brock Osweiler overreaction begin. He had a rough game Thursday night, and he’s rightfully taking some grief. He doesn’t look like a quarterback worth the big contract he signed.
I’ve never been a huge fan, so I’m still not impressed.
Still, the NFL is a weird league these days. Teams can look great and then lay an egg like the Texans did on Thursday. So you really have to give Osweiler time to see how he develops. To be a good NFL QB, you need to bounce back from games like this. Let’s see what Bill O’Brien can do about it.
Seriously? Have you heard some of the crazy hype around Dak Prescott after his preseason performances? Trent Dilfer is gushing like a schoolgirl. Michael Smith is already predicting the Cowboys shouldn’t want to bring back Tony Romo when he’s finally healthy again (he’s assuming of course that Prescott will be a star).
Slow down. Let’s see this kid perform in a real NFL game before proclaiming him a future pro bowl quarterback.
The Saints have been a mess since winning the Super Bowl, partly due to the draconian punishment handed down by the NFL for Bountygate. As a result they’ve wasted many excellent seasons from Drew Brees.
With Brees getting older the window seems to have closed, particularly with the horrible mess they’ve called a defense in New Orleans. But now that they’ve run Rob Ryan out of town, perhaps they can get the defense back on track.
Meanwhile, Brees still puts up solid numbers, they’ve signed him to an extension, and the Saints have added a nice receiver in Michael Thomas. Can this team compete for the playoff spot? Hard to say, though I’m very interested to see how Thomas does this year from a fantasy point of view now that he’s been named a starter.
