NFL Week 5

Postby UMFan83 » Wed Oct 07, 2020 3:14 pm

There's some games this week....maybe

Stephon Gilmore tested positive for COVID today, and the Titans had 2 more positives today that caused them to cancel their return to practice.

Oh and here is Gilmore hugging Mahomes after the game on Monday:



This is quickly falling apart. But then again, I thought that at one point about baseball and they were somehow able to rein it in.

https://www.footballoutsiders.com/dvoa- ... oa-ratings

Tampa Bay is a surprise No. 1 in DVOA this week but the Bucs don't have a huge lead. While the media may leap to crown a new king of the hill every week, the fact is that there really isn't a king of the hill this year. Kansas City isn't going to finish 16-0, Green Bay isn't unstoppable, and all the undefeated teams have weaknesses. No team is dominating its opponents week after week, and that's reflected in the DVOA ratings. Tampa Bay barely gets over 30%, finishing the week at 30.1%. Usually at this point of the season, the best team is at least over 40%. Only once in the 36-year history of DVOA has there been no team over 30% after Week 4: 1994, when the Seahawks were No. 1 at 27.6% at this point. The Bucs are just a couple of percentage points ahead of No. 2 Kansas City, and the Chiefs are just one point ahead of No. 3 Baltimore, and Indianapolis and Green Bay are also above 25%. The 2020 season has a lot of very good teams so far but nobody who is having a legendary start like last year's Patriots or the 2018 Rams.

We're seeing the same effect on the other end of the DVOA ratings. The New York Giants are currently last at -32.4% DVOA. Their offense is a dumpster fire, but their defense is above average, and the Giants have had only one really huge loss (to San Francisco in Week 3). Only once in the last 36 years was the last place team at this point higher than the 2020 Giants: the 2016 Jets at -31.1%. Usually the worst team at this point is down around -50%. Last year's Dolphins were the worst team ever after Week 4, at -90.9%.

The lack of outliers extends to individual units. You may have seen a lot of stats around the Internet about how stellar the Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers offense have been this season. For example, right now the Packers are averaging 3.97 points per drive which would blow away the all-time record of 3.37 set by the 2007 Patriots. It's very impressive, and the Packers are easily No. 1 in offensive DVOA so far this year. Yet their 30.4% rating doesn't even rank within the top dozen offenses of the last decade in terms of DVOA through Week 4. Why? Because lots of teams are putting up impressive offensive numbers this season. Overall scoring around the league is way up, as are other offensive numbers, and DVOA is normalized so that every year averages exactly zero.



Also Josh Allen leads the league's QBs in passing DYAR. By one, but still his lead through a whole 25% of the NFL season. He's second in DVOA

Who gets the first pick? The 0-16 team, or the 0-14 team? I assume the 0-16?

They should force teams who can't handle their Corona to forfeit games. It's ridiculous that they bent over backwards to reschedule the Bills Titans game

Things are not trending in the right direction. They should just forfeit games for the offending teams at this point. Maybe that will wake them up.

If only they had done the smart thing and built in a bye week or two during the season, say one after week 8 or 9 and one after the season. But then they’d risk not having football for a weekend which they can’t have.

They only had 6 months and 9 other sports to observe before their season started.

Henry Ruggs did a couple cool things today including this:



DJ Moore in Carolina seems pretty underrated too. I feel like some young QB's going to wander into a sneaky good situation over there...I like Burns as a pass rusher alot too

Jets fans who were optimistic about Chris Herndon,sadly includes me going against the ooooool' instincts heading into this year, can probably let that one go. He's most famous for not scoring against Miami a couple a years ago when he totally woulda coulda shoulda but didn't

According to my phone alert just now, Dan Quinn getting fired in Atlanta either tomorrow or Tuesday.

Has a team ever hired a head coach mid-season that was already employed with another team? Is that even allowed? The Falcons and Texans have to be the leading candidates to go after Eric Bienemy, and if either could make a move now, I think that'd put either in a good place for next year.

I feel like there has to be a rule against it. At the very least I'm sure the current team could block, and perhaps it's an unwritten rule that you wouldn't even ask?

I’ll be happy to never watch that injury (only read about it)

The first person to post a video of Dak should be perma-banned
