OK, folks, welcome to Week 12 of Dead Men Walking. We're looking at 2-8 heading into Sunday's much-anticipated Freeman-Tolzien (did I spell that guy's name right?) battle. Let's roll ...
Yes. Free at last! That's the educated guess based on the fact a team just lost by 21 points in a game in which QB turnovers led to 20 points.
Won't make a darn bit of difference if they don't have the right quarterback. (See: McCarthy, M.)
Kevin will be 34 next year. It's been a good run, but, yes, I think this is it.
When you trade for draft picks, you're looking for players like Adrian Peterson. Trading Adrian Peterson for a chance to draft someone like Adrian Peterson doesn't make a lot of sense to me. He won't be traded.
I don't look for Childs to play this season, but you never know. His injuries were about as bad as it gets. Sitting out a full season is probably the wise move. But so far, he looks exceptionally strong. But that doesn't mean he's ready for NFL action.
The best QB will be the one who turns it over the least. I think that is something to be determined.
Clowney would scare me. Plus, if there's an elite QB there, you take him and worry about the rest later. QB will be the No. 1 priority -- again.
At this point, everything is on the table. They don't start fine-tuning their draft process for months.
After what I saw in the second half Sunday, this is the opportunity to start Freeman to see if he can help you win a game. Neither Ponder nor Cassel have enough cred built up to keep the job when things go horrendously wrong. So, at 2-8 and nothing to lose, it's next QB up. Why not?
Yes, barring injury. Great guy. Really like him. Wish it could have worked out for him. But, yes, in my opinion, the evaluation period on him is over. And it's good for him, too. Let him move on and see if he can do something elsewhere.
Harrison Smith is injured. Kyle Rudolph is injured. Everson Griffen isn't doing too badly. Ditto Brian Robison. The latter were mid-rounders. There's good and bad results in the draft. There's also some unfortunate injuries.
That's what he said. Have to take him at his word. But apparently he sure fooled Frazier. I'm sure the league called looking for an explanation.
I assume you're not asking about the starting right guard? Freeman will start at QB. As for the second part, I think they have a chance because they're not playing Russell Wilson or Aaron Rodgers. They're playing Green Bay's No. 3 QB.
Personally, I'd like to see more of those five-receiver sets rather than all the bunched-up formations that bring even more defenders into the box. So put all the wideouts out there and spread things out for Peterson to move around.
I doubt he wants to release him. He's been a good player this season. But he probably wanted to sit him for a game and dock him a paycheck, which he can't do. But the league will get its justice soon enough.
It's possible, but they do like Jeff Bacca, a guard they drafted this year. Guard is the position they'd look to bolster. As far as the second part of the question, the Redskins, Falcons and Texans are asking the same thing. This is the NFL. This is how it goes every year. Just like the Vikings went from 3-13 to 10-6 last year.
Interesting question. I like what I see of Mauti on special teams. I wouldn't mind seeing what he could do at MLB. And Hodges is intriguing as well.
If you give any one of them the QB situation Leslie has right now, it wouldn't matter. Yes, it's unlikely that Frazier survives this. But he's still the same coach he was last year when he posted a seven-win improvement and went to the playoffs.
So you think they'd be a better team without Adrian Peterson. Hmm.
I think it's time we all accept that Antoine is 35 years old. Father time is undefeated, even against NFL players.
He was loyal last year when he only had Joe Webb as his backup. I wouldn't call benching Ponder after he healed from his rib injury being blindly loyal to a player. When Freeman's injury occurred, Frazier went back to Ponder. And now I'd be stunned if Freeman doesn't get another chance. So Frazier, I think, is trying to make the best out of three QBs who aren't very good right now.
